Black Beans: Consuming black beans can help with cell and DNA development as well as well as anaemia prevention.
Oats: Oats can surprisingly help with easing symptoms of PMS (bloating, tiredness, irritability, depression and headaches) because they contain GLA, an anti-inflammatory.
Cacao: Cacao is a phytochemical that directly influences gene expression and in turn, activates gene longevity. It plays a vital role in our body's biochemistry.
