Lettuce Discuss… Health Benefits!  
One teaspoon of poppy seeds has 4 percent of the recommended daily intake of both calcium and phosphorus, which combine to form the mineral used to build bones. You’ll also get 0.3 milligrams of Iron from a teaspoon of poppy seeds. In addition, you definitely need to consume the daily requirement because your body doesn’t store zinc and it must be available to fill significant jobs. Zinc is needed to support the structure of proteins and for the production and development of new cells. A zinc deficiency impairs your immune system because fewer immune-regulating and bacteria-fighting cells are produced. Men should consume 11 milligrams and women need 8 milligrams of zinc daily. One teaspoon of poppy seeds has 0.2 milligrams or 2 percent of the daily intake for men and 3 percent for women.
An easy way to add poppy seeds to your diet is by mixing them into salad dressings or sprinkling them into Gluten-Free pancakes.

Organic Berry Powder Blend by Biovea: Improves Memory, Supports Healthy Vision, Anti-Ageing Protection, and Contains Beneficial Phytochemicals!
What does Organic Berry Powder Blend do?
Berries are astonishingly rich in beautiful red, blue and purple colours, provide some of the most powerful and significant health benefits for those fortunate enough to consume them every day. What is not so well known is that different berries provide different benefits to different parts of the body. Organic bilberry, for instance, supports healthy vision, while organic blueberry is known to protect the brain.
Berries are a rich source of many beneficial nutrients, and regular consumption has been shown to offer significant protection against chronic degenerative diseases, including heart disease, cataracts, diabetes and strokes. Research shows that the powerful health benefits of berries work synergistically and are far more effective when a full spectrum of fruits and berries is consumed rather than single berries or isolated compounds.
The brightly coloured freeze-dried berries in Organic Berry Powder Blend are the superfoods that research reveals can help protect against heart disease, memory and cognitive loss, certain infections, macular degeneration, inflammation and ageing. These berries contain natural phytochemicals, plant substances that can promote health and prevent chronic disease, including flavonoids, quercetin, anthocyanins, catechins, salicylic acid, phyto-estrogens, chlorogenic acid, ellagic acid and many others. In fact, organic black raspberries and organic black currants contain higher levels of disease fighting anthocyanins than any other common fruits.
