So excited to get back to this after all these years. Here’s the original series, which gives tips on how to find the stuff:
• Amla Versus Cancer Cell Growth (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/amla-versus-cancer-cell-growth)
• Amla Versus Cancer Cell Invasion (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/amla-versus-cancer-cell-invasion/)
• Amla Versus Diabetes (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/amla-versus-diabetes/)
What else is super-duper antioxidant packed? See my videos Antioxidant Power of Plant Foods vs. Animal Foods (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/antioxidant-power-of-plant-foods-versus-animal-foods) and Antioxidant Content of 3,139 Foods (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/antioxidant-content-of-3139-foods/).
Stay tuned for the thrilling conclusion in my next video Amla vs. Drugs for Cholesterol, Inflammation, and Blood-Thinning (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/Amla-vs-Drugs-for-Cholesterol-Inflammation-and-Blood-Thinning).
