and lung cancer. Apple peels contain ursolic acid which, in rat studies, increases skeletal muscle
and brown fat, and decreases white fat, obesity, glucose intolerance, and fatty liver disease.
High avocado intake was shown in one preliminary study to lower blood cholesterol levels.
Specifically, after a seven-day diet rich in avocados, mild hypercholesterolemia patients showed
a 17% decrease in total serum cholesterol levels. Also, avocados have 35% more potassium (485
mg/100 g) than bananas (358 mg/100 g). They are rich in folic acid and vitamin K, and are good
dietary sources of vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E and pantothenic acid.

including chrysin, pinobanksin, vitamin C, catalase, and pinocembrin.The specific composition of
any batch of honey depends on the flowers available to the bees that produced the honey.
Kale, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or
