Sandi Cornez's curator insight, August 1, 11:23 PM

Did you know that rheumatoid arthritis is a gut related disorder? Your health is influenced by the bacteria.that reside in your gut.

 

Certain foods decimate your gut. Yes, all the usual suspects: sugar/fructose/artificial sweeteners, refined processed non food, junk food, gluten, including breads, baked goods, pastas, sodas.

 

Anytime your immune system is compromised as with taking antibiotics, Pharma drugs,  OTC meds these also increase inflammation. And inflammation as you know leads to chronic diseases, cancer, Alzheimer's depression, Parkinson"s IBS, , and possibly autoimmune diseases, 

 

Health tips:  Consume more plant based real whole food, including fermented organic food, prebiotic fiber which nurture your gut bacteria (onions, leeks, garlic, asparagus, Jerusalem artichoke, raddichio, dandelion greens, jicama, and others).Take a good quality probiotic to grow your microbial diversity and  recolonize your gut.

 

Try to consume more raw living food than cooked food and consume sprouts, blue-green algae, chlorella, wheatgrass juice if possible. If you never try it, you'll never know if you like it and better yet how your body feels.

Which Type of Exercise Is Best for the Brain?

Which Type of Exercise Is Best for the Brain? | Food, Nutrition and Health | Scoop.it

For the first time, scientists compared the neurological impacts of different types of exercise in rats: running, weight training and high-intensity interval training.


Some forms of exercise may be much more effective than others at bulking up the brain, according to a remarkable new study in rats. For the first time, scientists compared head-to-head the neurological impacts of different types of exercise: running, weight training and high-intensity interval training. The surprising results suggest that going hard may not be the best option for long-term brain health.


As I have often written, exercise changes the structure and function of the brain. Studies in animals and people have shown that physical activity generally increases brain volume and can reduce the number and size of age-related holes in the brain’s white and gray matter.

Must-Have Foods That Can Help Lower Blood Pressure Naturally

Must-Have Foods That Can Help Lower Blood Pressure Naturally | Food, Nutrition and Health | Scoop.it
These foods can help decrease the risk for heart disease.

 

Foods high in sodium and saturated fats, although tasty, can be responsible for heightened blood pressure, according to the World Health Organization. Pizza, fried meals, cakes and bacon are just a few of the many types of foods that contain high levels of saturated fats.  

 

"You eat those things, and the particles of saturated fat get into your blood and make it thicker – more like grease and less like water," Neal Barnard, founding president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, told U.S. News and World Report in 2014. "So the heart has to push to get this sludgy blood moving, and that's why blood pressure goes up." 

 

Fortunately, foods that can help reduce blood pressure naturally exist, and they're all around you.

ChoyLeng's insight:

Are you tasting the rainbow by expanding your palate with new colorful veggies, dark leafy greens, and exotic fruit? Plant based real whole food is the best bang for your buck.

 

Plant food is rich in protein, healthy fat, vitamins, minerals, fiber, enzymes, and antioxidants.  The colors in veggies/fruits indicate an abundance of these needed plant nutrients. 

 

Yellow and orange in squash, carrots, and some tomatoes point to higher levels of vitamins C and A. The beta-carotene behind these colors is known for supporting healthy eyesight.

 

Dark green in leafy greens and cabbages point to higher levels of vitamins K, B, and E. Chlorophyll creates the color and shows its well documented detoxifying properties.

 

Red in bell peppers and tomatoes indicates vitamin C. Lycopene provides the color which is associated with lowering risk of prostrate and breast cancers.

 

Purple and blue in raddichio, red cabbage, and eggplant deliver vitamins C and K. Anthocyanins create the colors which are potent antioxidants geared to keep you heart healthy.

 

Health Tips:  Eat a varied plant based regimen every day. Include the above greens, veggies, fruit and also seeds/nuts, plus sprouted and microgreens (broccoli, arugula, sunflower, pea shoots, radish, mung beans). Sprouted food has 10 to 30 times more protein than mature plants.
