Ever wondered how you can increase your blood flow or boost your intake of Vitamin D? I’ve always been fascinated with early history healers and shaman.

Grapes have an uncanny similarity to the alveoli of the lungs. Alveoli are small sacs within our lungs that help the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the lungs and the bloodstream. Adding red/purple grapes in your diet has been proven to reduce the risk of emphysema.
Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium which creates strong healthy bones. Mushrooms produce an excellent amount of vitamin D, which supports three small bones in the body. These bones play an important role in transmitting sounds to the inner ear. Looks familiar right?
This one is a no-brainer. Get it? Walnuts help develop over three dozen neuron-transmitters within the brain. Studies have suggested walnuts help prevent dementia and enhance signaling new message links between the brain and cells.
This one may not be food but I couldn’t leave out red wine. Rich in antioxidants, red wine looks just like blood. Red wine is known to help reduce blood clots that are linked to heart disease and help protect against harmful things in the blood such as, LDL cholesterol.
