1. Gwyneth Paltrow
Golden milk. Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan of this drink. The ingredients we use to make it are coconut milk, pepper and turmeric. Although there is little research on the benefits, some studies show that turmeric fights inflammation, which can cause a variety of diseases such as heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer's disease and various degenerative conditions. . It also has antioxidant properties, which is why it protects our body from harmful free radicals, thus promoting longevity.
The verdict: Golden milk may not work wonders, but you can drink a cup on a daily basis. But don't overdo it, because in excessive amounts it can cause stomach upsets.
2 Gisele Bundchen
Gisele's personal chef revealed that he avoids consuming a group of plants, the so-called Strychnoids. Tomatoes, eggplants and peppers belong to this group. Strychnoids contain some compounds called alkaloids and some claim to cause inflammation in the body. This is why Gisele avoids the above vegetables.
The verdict: There is no literature with valid scientific studies that argues that Strychnine can cause inflammation. Also, the amount of alkaloids in the edible portions of vegetables is very small and with cooking it can be eliminated. If you have an inflammatory condition, such as arthritis, and see that if you eliminate certain foods you help alleviate the symptoms, then reduce their consumption. But in no other case do you need to remove them from your diet.
3 Victoria Beckham
Victoria Beckham was the first to start the alkaline diet and which many later imitated. An alkaline diet claims that not only can it help you lose weight, but it also helps prevent problems such as arthritis and cancer. This diet aims to balance the PH in the body. Our blood should have a PH of 7,3 to 7,4. According to the alkaline diet, depending on the foods we consume, we can change the PH in the blood and thus prevent many health problems and weight gain. But to maintain the PH always according to the principles of the alkaline diet, we must consume 60% alkaline foods and 40% acidic, while to change an unbalanced PH we must increase the percentages to 80% to 20%. So the foods allowed are: fruits, vegetables, nuts, and legumes and low in meat, fish, dairy, eggs, cereals, and alcohol.
The verdict: As for the claims that the foods we eat can affect PH, they have no scientific basis. In fact, our body regulates its acidity on its own. The benefits that may result from an alkaline diet come from increased consumption of fruits and vegetables and the avoidance of processed foods.
4 Salma Hayek
Salma Hayek drinks the broth made from animal bones. And why does he do that? Because she believes that she has found the elixir of youth and the secret drink to keep her skin supple and radiant.
The verdict: Bone broth is the perfect example of dietary excess. So as you can see, there is no scientific study that links this broth to youth.
