5 Foods that Will Help Make You Healthier

Fox 5 San Diego reports on five foods that could improve your health:

Eating watermelon could reduce your blood pressure.  Researchers found that eating watermelon extract lowered blood pressure in subjects with prehypertension.

A diet rich in walnuts could help your body deal better with stress, according to a recent study.

Dieters who consumed milk or milk products were found to lose more weight on average than those who did not.  You should, of course, stick to raw milk, which is much healthier for you.

Magnesium-rich foods such as leafy greens and nuts could help prevent diabetes.  People who consume the most magnesium in foods are about half as likely to develop diabetes.

Foods rich in omega-3 fats can prevent age-related vision loss.  A recent study found that older adults who ate omega-3 rich foods at least once a week were 60 percent less likely to develop age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
