Some healthy foods may affect the smell of urine, disturb sleep, or even reduce the quality of sperm…
Try to lead a healthy lifestyle: go to the gym regularly, go on regular medical checkups to the doctor, and think more about what you put on your plate (put vegetables, fruits and checked meat).
However, some things are not under your control.
Healthy foods certainly have fabulous benefits on your physical health, but they also have some unusual effects.
Familiarize yourself with the good, the bad and somewhat bizarre effects of healthy food on your body:
BEETROOT INCREASES ENDURANCE
University of Exeter discovered that beetroot juice increases stamina during exercise. According to a study from 2009, nitrates in beetroot widen blood vessels, reducing the amount of oxygen that is needed for your muscles during workout.
HOT SAUCES DISTURB SLEEP CYCLE
If you’re a fan of hot, spicy sauces, avoid using them just before bedtime. The study, published in the International Journal of Psychophysiology, found that male participants who had eaten Tabasco sauce or mustard before bedtime suffer from sleep disorders.
POMEGRANATE FOR A RELIABLE ERECTION
Pomegranate is rich in antioxidants, which stimulate circulation, and thus promote erection, according to research published in the International Journal of Impotence Research. In the study, 47 percent of respondents admitted that their erections improved after consuming 226 grams of pomegranate juice after dinner.
If you have the slightest problem with erectile dysfunction, drink pomegranate juice.
CHERRY BOOSTS BRAIN FUNCTION
This red fruit may protect your brain and slow down degenerative brain diseases, according to research by the University of Michigan. As reported by the Detroit Free Press, mice, which had symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, ate cherry extract and passed the test of cognitive function.
