Food Facts

Cantaloupe has loads of vitamins A and C and potassium, which prevents muscle cramps. At only 60 calories a cup, it’s a low-calorie fruit as well.

Blueberries can help relieve hemorrhoids, according to Emily A. Kane, N.D. They have powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce the swelling. Oh, and she’s talking about eating them, not applying them topically.

Spinach, collards and similar greens contain lutein, an antioxidant that boosts skin hydration and elasticity. Researchers found a 38 percent increase in skin hydration with lutein supplementation.

Carrots, sweet potatoes and other deep yellow-orange vegetables and fruits can increase the skin’s resistance to damaging UV rays from the sun. The carotenoids in those foods are essential for skin protection and repair.

Yogurt can help reduce stress by soothing the stomach and digestive tract. It also boosts the immune system by replenishing good bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, so you’re less susceptible to stress-related illness.
