I read a lot of historical books lately where the topics are as early as 200 BC. I love history very much. I read about cradle of civilizations. How they lived and what they ate. I found out how Cleopatra lived and what are the foods and herbs she used to maintain her youthful beauty where Mark Anthony and Julius Caesar were smitten. Her secret is Aloe Vera and (Saluyot)Jute Leaves.
Aloe Vera is known for haircare and skin care. But don't you know that it is also used for wound healing? Yes it heals wound very fast. It is also good for the skin and can be eaten to improve your health condition. The process is, it will clean, heal and nourish your being.
Saluyot or Jute Leaves is also one of the beauty source of Cleopatra. It was discovered in her tomb that she also ate this herb. This herb is very abundant in Egypt and nearby countries like Saudi Arabia and Tunisia which is now planted or grew even in the Philippines.
So if you want to look young, beautiful and healthy, eat Jute Leaves or Saluyot. It can be grown through out the year. This green leafy vegetable is rich in vitamins and minerals like beta-carotene for good eyesight, iron for healthy red blood cells,calcium for strong bones and teeth, and vitamin C for smooth, clear skin, strong immune cells, and fast wound-healing. It is high in anti-oxidant which is 77% and will sponge free radicals before they sabotage our good cell. Eat this healthy food or foods to stay young and beautiful.
