Power Up Your Metabolism with Protein

Protein is the only daily essential macronutrient. Quality protein is your single important component of every cell in your body, hair and nails are mostly made of protein. Your body to uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscle, skin, and blood. But like fat and carbohydrates, the body does not store protein and therefore has no reserve to draw on when he needs a new supply. Your body is not a machine. It's a living, sentient being that makes decisions based on the challenges it faces everyday. Your body's number one priority is SURVIVAL.

Why We Need Vitamins

Posted on September 18, 2019 at 10:10 PM Comments comments (20346)
Micronutrients are dietary components, often referred to as vitamins and minerals, which although only required by the body in small amounts, are vital to development, disease prevention, and wellbeing. Micronutrients are not produced in the body and must be derived from the diet1. Deficiencies in micronutrients such as iron, iodine, vitamin A, folate and zinc can have devastating consequences. At least half of children worldwide ages 6 months to 5 years suffer from one or more micronutrient deficiency, and globally more than 2 billion people are affected2.

How Bad Is Central Body Fat!

Posted on September 16, 2019 at 3:30 PM Comments comments (39134)
Fat, no matter where it is in your body, is not something that any of us desire. We diet. We exercise. It doesn�??t seem to go anywhere. There are essentially two types of fat: Subcutaneous fat, the fat that can collect anywhere on the body. It is the �??soft�?�, �??pinchable�?� fat and visceral fat that is hard and usually appears as central body fat (right at the belly-line). While there are indeed dangers to subcutaneous fat, it does not present the same level or volume of risk that visceral fat does. This article from Dr. Axe�?? Food Is Medicine, focuses on the dangers of visceral fat, why it is so risky and the things you can do to get rid of it. In general, what makes visceral fat so dangerous is that it collects around the organs. Certain types of body fat are really inflammatory diseases of their own. Visceral fat is excess intra-abdominal adipose tissue accumulation. It is deep fat that is stored deep under the skin, deeper than subcutaneous fat. As this article clarifies, visceral fat is linked to many diseases, like cancer and coronary disease. It is by itself toxic and provokes the inflammatory pathways. It develops when communication between the brain and other major organs (the brain/body connection) begin to break down at its�?? core are your blood sugar levels. Increased inflammation, higher diabetes risk, difficulty in losing weight in general, higher risks of heart disease and stroke, dementia, depression and mood swings are just some of the consequences of excess visceral fat. The causes are overwhelmingly increased glucose in our bloodstreams. Controlling glucose is, therefore, the key to avoiding those consequences. I take a supplement each day that controls the spikes in insulin and therefore the glucose that produces these and other problems.

Industry Database Reveals 16,000 Foods With Toxic Chemical in Packaging

Posted on August 28, 2019 at 7:45 PM Comments comments (13402)
EWG has created the first easily searchable database of approximately 16,000[1] processed food and drink items packaged in materials that may contain the hormone-disrupting chemical bisphenol A, or BPA�??�??using information from the very companies that manufacture and sell these products. BPA acts like estrogen in the body and should be kept away from pregnant women and children in critical windows of development, according to researchers who have linked it to cancer, infertility, brain, nervous system and cardiovascular abnormalities, diabetes, obesity and other serious disorders. BPA contamination is widespread in processed foods and drinks because the chemical is a key component of the epoxy used as an anti-corrosive coating inside most of the 126 billion food cans manufactured in the U.S. each year. https://www.dropbox.com/s/b3b1ruisyc6st39/020718-bpa-bombshell-ewg.docx?dl=0

Diabetes and Carbohydrates

Posted on August 21, 2019 at 10:35 AM Comments comments (129388)
Planning what to eat and when to eat is very important???especially if you have diabetes. Counting carbohydrates, or carbs???adding up all the carbs in everything you eat and drink???can help people with diabetes manage their blood sugar levels. How many carbs should I eat? There???s no ???one size fits all??? answer???everyone is different because everyone???s body is different. On average, people with diabetes should get about 45% of their calories from carbs. A carb serving is measured as 15 grams per serving. That means most women need 3 to 4 carb servings (45???60 grams) per meal, while most men need about 4 to 5 carb servings (60???75 grams). However, these amounts depend on your age, weight, activity level, and diabetes medications. Make sure to work with a dietitian to set your own carb goal. read:https://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/managing/eat-well/diabetes-and-carbohydrates.html

Health Benefits Of Cranberries

Posted on August 11, 2019 at 7:35 PM Comments comments (74448)
When doing healthy meal planning we are likely to think of blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries in the berry category. The facts are cranberries, recent studies have identified have more than two dozen antioxidant phytonutrients that can help to make us healthier. About 1/3 of all adults are estimated to experience what is known as Metabolic Syndrome which is not itself considered a chronic disease, but rather, a key risk factor for other chronic diseases, like diabetes and diseases involving the cardiovascular system, and often, UTI (urinary tract infections). The health benefits of cranberries are highly credentialed as a phytonutrient-rich food. Most of these have shown to have antioxidant and/or anti-inflammatory properties and many other health benefits. The article below from The World�??s Healthiest Foods describes a list of Anthocyanins, flavonoids, tannins and more that are delivered by cranberries in your diet. Cranberries can help to regulate your risks from many chronic diseases as this article points out. It also provides a description, selection and storage suggestions and history of cranberries, which are arguably, a North American fruit. One of the challenges of including cranberries in your healthy diet is that they don�??t taste very good, which explains why they are mostly a �??special occasion�?� food (20% of their consumption is on Thanksgiving). My company has developed and manufactures a solution to that challenge in the form of a daily supplement that is made from cranberries. Their health benefits cannot be underestimated. www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=145 http://makegreengogreen.com/article/health-benefits-of-cranberries?betterhealth

Antibiotic Overuse

Posted on August 8, 2019 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (37810)
As soon as we get the sniffles, sore throat or a drippy nose the first thing many of us do is reach for an antibiotic. They�??re usually readily available in our medicine cabinets. They are available because they are over-prescribed by doctors and emergency rooms everywhere and all the time. 47,000,000 prescriptions in the U.S. are unnecessarily prescribed causing efforts to improving the way we take and the way physicians prescribe antibiotics to become a national priority. The article below from the Centers for Disease Control outlines the dangers of overuse of antibiotics. Surprisingly at least 23,000 people a year dies from antibiotic misuse. The article points out when antibiotics should be taken and when they are needed. It also tells us when they shouldn�??t be taken and when they are NOT needed. It also recommends alternatives that you can use (and things you can do) to feel better. While antibiotics can be very effective when prescribed and taken properly, they can also cause physical problems like reductions in good bacteria and immunity to the antibiotics themselves. Of course, the best way to fight disease is to stay healthy in the first place. A good diet, plenty of water and moderate to vigorous exercise are good lifestyle choices to avoid the onset of disease. A pure and effective vitamin regime can also be effective. Be sure that you research the supplements that you choose and make sure that there are studies that support your choice. http://makegreengogreen.com/article/antibiotic-overuse?betterhealth
