Passion fruit (a.k.a. Passiflora edulis) is a sweet tropical fruit, with a yellow or dark purple skin, depending on the variety. It is slightly oval in shape and has a slimy yellow flesh which wraps numerous edible and crunchy seeds
It is a rich source of antioxidants, which effectively destroy cancer cells, and about 13 carotenoids, including zeta, beta and alpha-carotene, b-cryptoxanthin, and lycopene. Moreover, this fruit is abundant in B vitamins, vitamins A and C, calcium, copper, fiber, folate, iron, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, and protein
Therefore, it has a plethora of health benefits, such as:
-- It is abundant in dietary fiber which lowers cholesterol levels, potassium, which protects the heart from an irregular heartbeat and controls the contraction and expansion of heart muscles, and antioxidants, which prevent plaque buildup in the arteries .
-- Passion fruit detoxifies the colon and ensures healthy bowel movements
-- It has been found to prevent and fight cancer, since it is rich in phytonutrients, like apigenin, luteolin, caffeic acid, and beta carotene, while its seeds are rich in amygdalin and passifloric acid
-- The high potassium levels regulate blood pressure, balance electrolytes and control muscle function, so its consumption improves heart health
-- Passion fruit contains high amounts of medicinal alkaloids and phytonutrients which relax the nervous system, improve mood, treat depression and anxiety, and improve sleep quality
-- The high amounts of antioxidants like vitamin A, C and flavonoids improve vision, and protect the eyes from free radicals, while the beta carotene prevents eye damage and eye diseases
-- The numerous antioxidants in this fruit prevent free radical damage and protect against cancer
-- It increases the levels of a pigment called hemoglobin in the blood, which transports blood throughout the body

Salty air soothes my soul
As soon as I stepped on the beach, breathed in the salt air, something inside me instantly relaxed. The stress, the anxiety, the overwhelm of the past week, was gone. All of it was self-imposed. None of it no longer mattered.
Life is about finding the things that light your soul up. The rest is just details
Research continues to show us that depression is a sign of imbalance. It's not an inherited genetic condition that you are powerless to change. 👉 Imbalances can be caused by inflammatory foods, toxins, medications, life events like trauma, and stress – and taking a one-size-fits-all antidepressant is like turning off a blaring alarm and ignoring a fire. ❤ Here are 12 research-backed possibilities that could be the root cause drivers of depressive symptoms:
- Infection-induced depression - Long term stress
- Conflicts in modern hierarchies, such as the workplace, social groups, and families
- Romantic rejection
- Postpartum depression
- Seasonal Affective Disorder
- Chemically-induced depression
- Environmental toxins - Being diagnosed with a disease
Depression looks different for each person. 💕 Our office focuses on getting to the root cause of depression.
When various aspects of a whole are irreducible, it means any alteration to one aspect or thing, will ultimately affect all remaining aspects or things that comprise the whole.
