Raw Wholefood Nutrition

By now most of us know that we need to eat a selection of fruits and vegetables each day.

We also know how difficult it can be to do. Especially to ensure we’re eating them at their prime.  How often have you purchased fresh fruit and vegetables only to place them in the refrigerator, forget about them and then throw them out?  I think we have all done that. Plus most vegetables need to be cooked and we know that diminishes their nutritional value, unless you like eating raw sweet potatoes etc.

Is there another way?  I think so.  Imagine being able to consume more than 50 raw plant ingredients any time you wish?

“Health A to Z” – P

The Letter P

Phytochemicals

The active health-protecting compounds that are found as components of plants.

Currently, the terms “phytochemical” and “phytonutrient” are being used interchangeably to describe those plant compounds which are thought to have health-protecting qualities.

The antioxidant, immune boosting and other health promoting properties of active compounds in plants are being investigated. Phytonutrients or phytochemicals that are being studied presently include (and are not limited to) terpenes, carotenoids, limonoids, and phytosterols.

Pomegranate

Pomegranates contain tons of nutrition… and best of all, it’s low in calories. In just one pomegranate fruit there is around 100 calories. But that’s only the beginning of the nutrition pomegranate provides:

  • a great source of potassiumpomegranate
  • more antioxidants compared to other juices and even wine!
  • vitamin B and Vitamin C
  • great source of fiber
  • helps prevent heart disease
  • keeps your immune system in top notch conditions
  • prevents buildup of material in your arteries

Pomegranates are a superfood!

Prebiotics & Probiotics

Prebiotics and probiotics can restore the balance of bacteria in your digestive tract. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that can be found in various foods. When you eat probiotics, you will add these healthy bacteria to your intestinal tract. Common strains include Lactobacillis and Bifidobacterium families of bacteria. Prebiotics are non-digestible foods that make their way through our digestive system and help good bacteria grow and flourish. Prebiotics keep beneficial bacteria healthy.

Probiotics and You

Healthy “Intestinal Flora” contributes to a healthy immune system and digestive system.

There is a war going on in your digestive tract. We all have good microbes (intestinal flora) residing within us, but there are bad ones as well. Disease-causing bugs in the intestine must compete with the “good” microbes.

What we need is an effective way to not only help keep the balance, but to actually let the good flora win. You need more good bacteria to allow your immune system, which is your body’s defense mechanism, to fight against the millions of bacteria you consume each day.

Stress and changes in diet can compromise your overall health. If your diet includes sugar and fatty meats then you are giving unfriendly flora in your digestive system the advantage. Of course some drugs, like antibiotics have a detrimental effect on your intestinal flora as they cannot distinguish between good bacteria and bad, so both die.

Probiotics support the immune system and enhances health by allowing the good intestinal flora to win. What are some examples of probiotics?

  • Bifidobacterium lactis: a friendly bacteria often found in yogurt that is known to help stimulate immune responses.
  • Lactobacillus casei: works with other helpful organisms, and helps to encourage the growth of other “good” bacteria.
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus: assists your elimination and occasional intestinal discomfort by working to stabilize your intestinal microflora.
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus: guards the health of your entire digestive tract.

Healthy digestive probiotics and the benefits they provide are all the rage now! The popularity of Probiotics is steadily increasing thanks to many high profile stars in Hollywood. Celebrities are now using Probiotics to give them the health benefits such as weight loss, anti-aging, energy boosts and much more. Probiotics is now becoming the supplement of choice amongst the celeb elite!

Early research shows Probiotics may also have a role in preventing colon cancer. It may produce natural antibiotics that kill destructive bacteria, strengthen the intestinal lining or simply just crowd out other, possibly harmful, bacteria.

Probiotics are vital for proper digestion of fats and proteins, synthesizing of vitamin K, vital for the prevention of osteoporosis and many of our B vitamins, plus they detoxify the intestinal tract and reduce cancer risks.

Eat more of the helpful bacteria, and you can stave off stomach problems. Research shows Probiotics significantly cuts the rate of many types of diarrhea, particularly the type that develops after a person has taken a course of antibiotics.


What are Probiotics and Why Do I Need Them?

Optimal Health Begins in the digestive tract.

Aging, dieting, stress, travel and certain medications can disrupt the natural balance of intestinal microflora in our digestive system. Probiotics are “friendly” bacteria that promote healthy digestive flora, to support healthy digestion. In fact, the word probiotic means “for life”.

Not only is a healthy digestive system important to help you get the nutrients you need from food, but it also helps the body stay healthy. Maintaining a healthy digestive system can help us avoid the occasional symptoms of intestinal discomfort and keep us enjoying overall health and wellness.

Intestinal Probiotic enhancers are designed to improve gastrointestinal function and intestinal good bacterial microbial balance. Lactospore increases enzymes for improving digestion and enhances the bioavailability of nutrients from the food. Unlike many probiotics, Lactospore does not cause gas or bloating.

Bowtrol Probiotic contains 9 Billion live probiotic cells, more than 5 times the live active cultures typically found in yogurt, but without the sugar and calories. Unlike many other probiotics, the Bowtrol Probiotic is specially designed to survive the acidic stomach environment and be delivered to the intestines.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. I heard that liquid vinegar is very effective. Why should I choose vinegar in a tablet form?
Vinegar tablets are actually more concentrated and more effective than liquid vinegar. Highly concentrated vinegar extract would be too sour for consumption in liquid form. In order to give you multiple benefits, different types of concentrated vinegars are blended into each tablet. Liquid vinegar usually only contains one or two types. Finally, tablets are obviously more convenient; you can take them any time, anywhere.

2. Can I chew the vinegar tablet?
No. It is much better to swallow the tablet with water. The best way to take a vinegar tablet is to take a sip of water leaving a bit of water in your mouth, then place the tablet into your mouth and swallow immediately. Drink more water if required.

3. Can I take vinegar tablets with other beverages (such as fruit juice) instead of warm water?
Yes. However, we do not recommend that you take vinegar tablets with dairy-based or high protein beverages.

4. Can I take vinegar tablets with hot water?
Yes, the temperature will not affect the vinegar, but it’s important to make sure that you do not use water that could scald your mouth.

5. I’m healthy and not suffering from any aches and pains, is there a need for me to take vinegar tablets?
Vinegar tablets can help anyone to maintain health. They are especially great for people who have stressful lifestyles and unhealthy eating habits because vinegar tablets help to counteract acidity in the body.

6. Can I take vinegar tablets while I’m on other health supplements?
Certainly. Vinegar tablets will not reduce the efficacy of other supplements. In fact, they help the body to absorb nutrients such as Vitamin B Complex, Calcium and Iron better. Vinegar tablets also offer many other health benefits. However, we do not recommend taking vinegar tablets along with probiotics supplements.

7. My body is weak, and I was advised to avoid sour foods. Since vinegar is very sour, will taking vinegar tablets cause any undesirable effects to my body?
No, it will not. On the contrary, it benefits your body as it increases absorption of other nutrients.

Do You Consider Yourself To Be Healthy – Part 3

Along with eliminating those bad habits referred to in Part 2 of this series, we must change what we are doing and eating.

Unfortunately, it’s simply not enough to stop the bad stuff, we have to intake lots of the good stuff. We have a lot to overcome, to have average health, let alone optimal health.

Basically, in order for our bodies to function at it’s optimal level, we need a whole spectrum of nutrients. These nutrients can be grouped as below:-

  1. Vitamin, minerals, trace minerals
  2. Antioxidants
  3. Essential fatty acids (EFA)
  4. Essential amino acids
  5. Immune boosters
  6. Digestive enzymes
  7. Probiotics and prebiotics
  8. Fiber
  9. Cleansing and detoxification herbs
  10. Alkaline promoters
  11. Phtyoestrogen
  12. Cardiovascular protectors
  13. Brainfoods
  14. Bone Builders

Boy, that’s a whole heap of stuff we need! Do have any idea how to achieve the result you need?

The problem we have is that a so-called balanced diet only considers proportions of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Most people don’t even know about, say, alkaline promoters. Did your doctor ever discuss brainfood or antioxidants with you? I’ll bet that didn’t happen. Umm, something to think about.

The answer is supplementation. Natural supplements should not be considered alternative or complimentary therapies or medicines. They are natural foods, not drugs.
