Righteous Results

Really? Have you any idea how many Righteous supplements, foods and or herbs begin with the letter R? Just to name a Random few:

Red clover – good source of calcium, phosphorous, and protein, anti-cancer, treats whooping cough, bronchitis, sore throats; blood, liver and kidney cleanser, treats skin problems
Resveratrol - listed below
Riboflavin – studies indicate that a daily dose of 40 mg of riboflavin for 3 months have provided considerable relief for migraine sufferers, inhibits cancer risk and heart disease, anti-stroke and antibacterial
Rice - listed below, and try for colored rice, not just long grained white rice.
Rosehips – Rosehips is rich in vitamin C which is very effective in building our immune system to ward off bacterial and viral infections.
Rosemary – anti-cancer, soothes nervous system, head ache relief, anti-depression, digestive aid, assists in blood pressure treatment, aids in treating hair loss, anxiety and improved circulation. 
Rye – whole rye (not that traditionally found in stores) contains more protein, minerals and B vitamins than whole wheat. Whole rye is power packed with two times the protein, three times the phosphorous and calcium, four times the riboflavin, five times the iron and thiamine, six times the niacin and seven times the potassium. You can spot the whole rye by it’s darker color, not that of the counterpart which has been sifted and diluted with wheat flour. 

Red tea

Caffeine free, low in calories, a natural for those diet conscious and loaded with health benefits containing  magnesium necessary for a healthy nervous system. Red tea is often prescribed for nervous tension and used as a relaxing natural sedative. Containing no oxalic acid it can be enjoyed by those who suffer from kidney stones and also contains potassium and copper minerals to assist in metabolic functions to help with weight loss. It also aids in iron absorption for those who suffer from iron deficiency. 

Red Yeast Rice

According to The Food Pharmacy there are "possible therapeutic benefits" in eating rice:
  • Aiding in maintaining sugar levels for non-diabetics
  • Clearing up psoriasis

  • Lowering blood pressure/cholesterol
  • Preventing kidney stones
  • Preventing cancer


Used in treatment for blood sugar, cancer prevention, colds, flu, heart protection, longevity, rheumatoid arthritis and memory assistance. Resveratrol can be found in grapes and red wines.
