Do you want to live long?

Mr. LaPallo enjoys a balanced diet that includes lots of fruits and vegetables, and he avoids red meats and processed foods. These are the five foods he holds in high esteem and believes have helped him stay healthy and active that you can try to stay healthy.

The first is garlic. This substance is the most prominent one and gives garlic its distinct smell. Garlic has been used for centuries to help lower high blood pressure and high cholesterol, prevent heart diseases and arthrosclerosis and it works in an anti-cancer way. For maximum benefits, eat it raw. The second is raw honey. It is one of nature’s superfoods. It abounds in anti-oxidants and helps your body stay alkaline, which wards off different diseases.

The third is dark chocolate. Dark chocolate with high cocoa content (at least 70%) can be very good for you when consumed in moderation. It’s rich in anti-oxidants and prevents cardiovascular disease by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. The fourth is cinnamon. It is especially known for its medicinal effects. Cinnamon lowers blood sugar and cholesterol, treats inflammation and yeast infections and helps with digestion.

And the last is olive oil. This Mediterranean treat is a good source of healthy oils, as long as you don’t heat it up. It’s high in monounsaturated fats and reduces the risk of heart disease.
