Upcoming changes

Dear friends of ABGEO International,

The New Year is upon us and we would like to update you on some of the things that have been brewing in the minds and hearts of the ABGEO team. As some of you know, ABGEO started as a little forum sparking from an idea that change is possible given the opportunity. The forum slowly evolved into a blog that is operating since 2007.

We have been brainstorming and thinking of next steps for a while now, and after many meetings and considerations decided to take things a step further and register as an organization. We are convinced that the need for it is great, just by reading many of your comments. We believe that we can play a vital role in the transition of the future and our ambition and care for our community is taking action that hopefully motivates others to do the same. So, be prepared for the upcoming changes and plan your participation. We are looking for members, volunteers, partners, and supporters as we all can contribute to our future.

Apart from a new website which will be launched soon, we will kick off the New Year with an exciting interview of Nino Tatunashvili as part of the ‘Making a Difference Anytime Anyplace’ initiative. Furthermore, ABGEO International will be acquiring a non-for-profit status in 2011, offering you numerous interesting programs. To cover some of our start-up costs, we will be launching a fundraising campaign and will be most grateful for your donations. Our recruitment campaign is also underway as we are looking to staff several volunteer positions which will be available in the New Year.

We are truly blessed to have so many of you offering us help and words of encouragement. We hope you continue being by our side as we take these steps forward. Stay tuned and check back often! As always we’d love to hear your suggestions, questions, or just comments. Write us at

Wishing you all a happy holiday season!

Top Five Fruits

Of course I do not need to tell you that fresh fruit and vegetables play a vital role in healthy eating habits. The reason fruits and vegetables are so important is that they are packed with micro nutrients that help your body to support specific systems.

The best way to eat fruit is raw. It is not even advisable to eat diced fruit because it is not as fresh as the whole one. If your daily portion of fruit is rich with different sorts f berries, kiwis, cherries, apples, bananas and etc. it means that your aging process will be slowing down, you will gain your natural weight, energy will increase, your cholesterol level and blood pressure will be lower.

We all know the saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". Well it turns out it is not just an apple, it is fruit in general that keeps one healthy, energized and fit.

Here are five recommendations for type of fruits you should reach for most often. These will help your body fight disease, they will lower level of inflammation, and they will generally improve your health.

Top Five Fruits


Brightly-coloured berries like blue, rasp, straw, black, cran etc. are full of antioxidants that help your body to fight disease and lower inflammation. In fact, when it comes to antioxidants, berries deliver the most of any fruit or vegetables.


Cherries are loaded with antioxidant compounds that are anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and anti-cancer. This fruit contains vitamins which aid in prevention of heart disease; relieve pain of arthritis, gout, headache and provide healthy and safe way to produce melatonin.


Kiwis are sometimes an overlooked fruit, as they almost taste too good to be so healthy! They have twice the vitamin C of oranges, and are one of the most nutrients dense fruits on the planet. They are very high in fibber and potassium for a healthy heart.


Enjoy pomegranates either the fresh seeds or pulp, or even make juice everyday as this will help lower blood pressure, improve cardiovascular health, and help slow aging.


Bananas are very rich in carbohydrates, the reason why they constitute on of the best ways to provide organisms with vegetable energy. One banana can replace your breakfast if you have no time in the morning because it is very high in calories and will produce enough energy in your body for the rest of the day.
