The Hidden Dangers in Your Whole Grains, Beans, Nuts and Seeds?

The Hidden Dangers in Your Whole Grains, Beans, Nuts and Seeds? | Health related or something | Scoop.it

If not properly released before processing and cooking, when consumed, these phytic acids combine with important minerals such as calcium, zinc, magnesium, iron and copper and prevent absorption. Phytic acid also has the potential to block protein absorption. This not only applies to the minerals and protein in the food containing the phytic acid, but also the food that you eat with it.

Plant seeds also contain enzyme inhibitors that protect the plant from predators. These inhibitors block enzyme function, most notably the uptake of trypsin, an enzyme responsible for digesting protein. Animal research has shown that over consumption of foods containing trypsin inhibitors can lead to hyper-secretion of pancreatic enzymes, an enlarged pancreas and benign tumors.

Vertaistukea ja ajankohtaista tietoa kilpirauhassairauksien hoitovaihtoehdoista
Marko Seppänen's insight:

Vajaatoimintapotilaat ovat helposti itsekeskeisempiä kuin muut, koska heiltä uupuu tarvittavat resurssit sekä energia pitää itsestään huolta puhumattakaan siitä, että heidän pitäisi puuttua muiden elämään. Joskus he voivat olla äkäisiä, loukkaavia, pisteliäitä, kriittisiä, tuomitsevia ja omata muita hyvin epämiellyttäviä piirteitä. He voivat kärsiä motivaation ja/tai päämäärän puutteesta, ja  yksinkertaistenkin tehtävien suorittaminen voi tuntua ylivoimaiselta. He myös yleensä tietävät, että heidän käyttäytymisensä on epäsopivaa.
