Pluggz + vegetables+ gardening.  Could there be a better match??

Pluggz + vegetables+ gardening. Could there be a better match??


Think about vegetables and fruit: Many fruits and vegetables contain magnesium, an essential mineral that aids muscle and nerve function; boosts immunity; prevents inflammation; wards off depression and migraines; maintains normal heart rhythm and more

Dark leafy greens, like kale, spinach and beet greens, as well as bananas, avocados, green beans and nuts and seeds are some of the highest sources.

Now let’s think about grounding: Our bodies are very electrical. The Earth is one of the most powerful electrical sources and, because of our stress-filled and busy lives, we often lack electrons, causing an imbalance and a reaction called “static charge,” which can be pretty harmful to our health.

When we connect to the earth, we flood our bodies with electrons, reducing inflammation and making us calmer, happier and more grounded and able to cope. Speaking of inflammation, science is constantly revealing that it’s a cause of many chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes and autoimmune disorders.

Now let’s think about shoes: One of the best ways to connect to the Earth is to walk barefoot, like the caveman did. That’s not always practical these days, though, is it?  Could you just see it—walking into a business meeting barefoot?!

Most shoes today have soles made of synthetic materials, making them insulators, not conductors, interfering with the absorption of electrons, and cutting off any flow of the earth’s energy to the body—but pluggz are different.

Every pair of pluggz grounding and earthing shoes contains soft black plugs made from a proprietary custom-formulated carbon and rubber compound that sit under the weight bearing part of your feet, carefully engineered and designed to simply conduct the flow of the earth’s electrons in to your body every time you take a step on the ground. When this happens, you get grounded effortlessly, your body is flooded with the antioxidant effect and inflammation is reduced.

At Pluggz, we’re all about health and well being.  And connecting to the earth.  There are so many dietary theories out there, whether its to lose weight, gain weight, lower cholesterol, live a long and healthy life, boost immunity, increase energy, etc.

There really is no “one size fits all” diet.  You do need to listen to your body!

But whatever your diet is, the majority of your plate should always be vegetables and fruit—and that plate should always be colorful!

Here’s why: Each color in a fruit or vegetable has different vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients—and that means more health benefits for you.

Here’s a breakdown of what it all means:

  • Red colors:  strawberries, tomatoes and apples have been reported to reduce the risk of prostate cancer, high blood pressure and cholesterol levels.  Strawberries, like any berry, are loaded with antioxidants.  Tomatoes contain lycopene.
  • Greens, such as spinach, kale, collards, broccoli, asparagus, dandelions: These are considered a super food, which means they have an ultra high nutrient value. Greens have been reported to do everything from lessening depression to aiding immunity, fighting aging and more.
  • Oranges and yellows:  Oranges and lemons are packed with vitamin C, and that promotes collagen formation. They also work well with magnesium and calcium to bring you healthy joints and bone health.

NOTE:  Many think of lemon as an acidic, it becomes highly alkaline once metabolized.  You should know that because disease and aging thrive in an acidic environment—but not in alkaline. Thinking about it, though—most vegetables and fruits are alkaline!

  • Eggplant, grapes, blackberries, blueberries and other blues and purples. Contain vitamin C, fiber, lutein and reversatrol  to boost immunity, fight inflammation (so responsible for many diseases) and even improve mineral absorption.
  • Parsnips, bananas, mushrooms, potatoes and other whites: These phytonutrients increase immunity, balance hormones, decrease the risk of some cancers.
