Understanding how food can heal

preventativeGood health is in bloom across Manitoba farms, and the Canadian Centre for Agri-Food Research in Health and Medicine (CCARM) is dedicated to exploring and proving the benefits.

The researchers at CCARM have conducted studies of prairie-based foods such as flaxseed, canola, buckwheat, pulse crops, lingonberries, and more. From a medical perspective, the results are promising. From a provincial economic perspective, the results are potentially monumental.

The work also looks at traditional Aboriginal medicines, Chinese medicines, and many other functional foods and nutraceuticals.

The researchers are driven by the belief that the solutions to many of our health problems lie in nature. The challenge and the opportunity is to understand the precise nature of their preventive and therapeutic potential.
