The Best and Worst Fish For Your Health

The Best and Worst Fish For Your Health | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it
What if I told you there’s a food that may be able to help keep your heart strong, brain healthy, and eyesight sharp? If you haven't guessed by now, this multi-tasking food is fish . Although fish is a lean yet potent source of protein, it's not just any fish that brings on the most benefits. Fatty fish supply eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), long-chain omega-3s that may be the key behind the benefits associated with eating fish, more so than their shorter-chain, plant

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, May 21, 5:37 AM

Are you adding spicy foods to your meals? As part of a family of potent tropical peppers which contain enzymes that are key to your endocrine function, cayenne is among the most alkalizing foods. It is known for its antibacterial properties and is a rich source of vitamin A making it a helpful food in fighting off harmful free radicals that lead to stress and illness. Cayenne is also rich in  vitamin  B complex , C and essential minerals magnesium, potassium, copper, zinc, manganese, and selenium. Studies show that capsaicin, the powerful compound in cayenne has anti-bacterial, anti-carcinogenic, analgesic,  and anti-diabetic properties. With cayenne , a little works very well to get the healing benefits.

 

Health Tips:  Cayenne pepper is known to increase your body temperature which increases the calories that are burned. Half a teaspoon does it taken with food. Spicy, hot , pungent foods are great for relieving congestion and open breathing passages and they taste great. Even if you're not a big fan of that pungent flavor, try a little mixed into some avocado for a tangy salsa and/or guacamole. Both your tastebuds and your body will love you.

Your Diet is Causing Inflammation and Arthritis Flare-ups - Here are 7 Foods that Fight Arthritis

Your Diet is Causing Inflammation and Arthritis Flare-ups - Here are 7 Foods that Fight Arthritis | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it
Find out what foods you should and shouldn't eat to prevent the inflammation associated with arthritis.

Via Sandi Cornez

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, May 20, 5:43 PM

Did you know that what you eat affects every aspect of who you are from your behaviors to your moods, and attitude about life? The foods you consume are either anti-inflammatory or pro-inflammatory. Since the advent of processed foods from cans and boxes in the U.S. in the early 1900s to today’s explosion of processed junk foods loaded with highly inflammatory sugar and chemicals, pesticides, additives, GMOs, the incidence of chronic inflammation has soared and so has chronic disease. Pro-inflammatory foods trigger the release of inflammatory chemicals in your body that are directly responsible for your pain and the chronic disease such as arthritis. that’s one of the reasons it’s important to not just eat more anti-inflammatory foods, but to also reduce considerably or avoid completely all processed fake foods.

 

Health Tips:  Some pro-inflammatory foods to skip are the vegetable oils (corn, cottonseed, safflower, soybean, sunflower, and canola (which isn’t even from a plant, but a man made oil).  Did you now that too much omega 6s make your joints stiff? Polyunsaturated vegetable oils are from omega 6 fats. Polyunsaturated fats can also be from omega 3s which are anti-inflammatory. Use more extra virgin olive oil for your salads which are mono-saturated. Use extra virgin coconut oil for stir-frys or small amounts of sesame oil.  These are the healthy fats. Be careful with gluten if it affects your body. And of course stay away from packaged sugary foods, white flour, white rice, and all refined store bought products which are highly pro-inflammatory. Stick with veggies and fruit, herbs and spices, unrefined foods, organic and certified organic as much as possible, non-GMO, nuts/seeds, small amounts of ancient grains (amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, millet, teff). These are anti-inflammatory foods. Eating flax, hemp, and/or chia seeds will give you all the omega 3 healthy fats your body needs without resorting to fish oil capsules. Make sure to take enough vitamin D3, B-complex, and ionic magnesium as most people are deficient in these key nutrients. Keep moving and laughing.
