Stressed vegetables... wha ?

Post by ChrisBON » Mon May 17, 2021 7:02 am

Ok,
i think i have the concept. Plants that have gone through stressful conditions are more likely to contain certain adaptogens in their tissues.

But I am not sure that translates to humans eating them and benefitting.

Does anyone else have knowledge of this diet approach?


Taking:
NMN since June, 2019 (started at 250mg, 500mg as of Oct 1st)
NAD+ nasal spray since July, 2019
Resveratrol since Sept 2019
Astaxanthin 10mg since October 20th
Blueberry concentrate 500 mg since October 20th
Berberine 250 mg since October 20th

It’s probably more of a biology nerd thing than useful application, but it turns out that a lot of the compounds that are healthy for humans that come from vegetables are also the ones that plants produce under difficult growing conditions. Basically to compensate for difficult growing conditions, they produce the compounds, which are good for the plant and also good for humans who eat the plant later.

Plants may be like humans that “what doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger”
To a degree we build up resistance to disease and different stressors by way of exposure.

Exactly, what doesnt kill us makes us stronger! I know they do this technique for grapes and in turn you get a more robust wine!

I get the stressed plants, like sitting in the hot sun all day is stressful, so you can assume all plants would experience stress by being on this planet.. just like we do. Organic produce may be typically more stressed, so that could be a thing.

Fundamentally for me, it's good food choices validated by science, plus how I feel and perform as sometimes not everything "good for you" is actually good for you - we are all different!

On food I have been inspired for the last decade by these guys: https://eattobeat.org/ A great collection of foods to choose from, and some great food hacks validated by science like "cooking tomatoes in olive oil" as an example for food synergy!

Also do yourself a favor and buy the book, it is amazing what certain foods can do for our overall health and well being.

I go for the darker or brighter colours. They seem to be the best for us.
