Subject: Used in moderation, nutritional yeast can boost immunity andimprove digestion





Nutritional yeast, with the scientific name Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is sometimes called nooch and is made from beet molasses and sugar cane. This yeast uses sugar for energy in its yeast cells and are believed to help improve digestion. It is rich in nutrients and B vitamins like vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B6 and can also give a rich, nutty, and savory flavor to food; that is why vegans and vegetarians use it often. Even non-vegans can use it for its high nutritional content. It is noted that only fortified nutritional yeast contains the added B vitamins since unfortified yeast contains the vitamins that were produced by the yeast itself but one can buy both the fortified and unfortified varieties and blend them together. It is naturally low in sodium and calories. It is also free of fat, free of gluten, free of sugar and as I said before, vegan. Properly stored it can last for up to two years in the home. Some of the health benefits of nutritional yeast are that it boosts immunity, improves digestion, is a vegan source of vitamin B12 and lowers cholesterol and blood pressure.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nutritional yeast is rich in B vitamins, contains fiber and protein along with many minerals such as zinc and iron.
  • Unfortified yeast doesn't have any added vitamins but fortified yeast contains synthetic vitamins.
  • Nutritional yeast boosts your immune system, improves digestion, lowers blood pressure and promotes healthy hair, nails and skin.

"Vegans and vegetarians use nutritional yeast because it is rich in nutrients and B vitamins, but you can also add it to your diet if you are looking for a natural ingredient with a cheesy, nutty, and savory flavor."

Subject: The nutritional content and health benefits of pecans and walnuts





Walnuts and pecans are both healthy snacks with lots of benefits. Walnuts have more fat and more protein, while pecans have more fiber and more natural sugars. The fat in both pecans and walnuts consists predominantly of healthy fats like monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, as well as omega-3s. Both pecans and walnuts are good for brain health and rich in antioxidants. Their polyphenols help to protect the brain, while their healthy fats help to safeguard the heart and prevent atherosclerosis.

Key Takeaways:

  • Pecans and walnuts might have differences in looks and taste, but they are very well regarded for their healthiness and great tastes.
  • When one takes a serving of walnuts, he discovers that it contains more calories than an equal serving of pecans and this extra energy is stored in fats.
  • The fats in walnuts are usually good fats which consist mostly of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, along with omega-3 fatty acids.

"Walnuts have the B vitamins choline and niacin, while pecans show tiny amounts of vitamin A."

Culinarily, fennel is appreciated for its mild licorice flavor, but it should also be cherished for its many medicinal properties. Fresh fennel bulb and its seeds (both are edible) are low in calories and high in manganese. The bulbs are also a good source of Vitamin C, while the seeds have the ability to curb one's appetite, according to some research, and thus abet weight loss. Antioxidants have been shown to provide numerous health benefits, and fennel bulb and seeds are loaded with them. There are even studies suggesting (although not conclusively proving) that fennel can help fight cancer. Overall, fennel is as healthy as it is delicious.

Key Takeaways:

  • Besides possessing a pleasing and mild licorice-type flavor, crunchy fennel seeds are also packed with minerals and fiber.
  • Data suggests that a tea made with fennel seeds may have the ability to suppress appetite.
  • Nutrients found in fennel include msgnesium, potasspot, iron, calcium, manganese and vitamin C.

"Aside from its many culinary uses, fennel and its seeds offer a wide array of health benefits and may provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial effects."

Matcha is a powdered form of green tea derived from the Camelia sinensis plant and prized for its health benefits. Matcha is full of antioxidants and catechism that can help protect the health of your heart and arteries while keeping your cholesterol in check. Several clinical trials in both elderly people and the general population suggest that matcha can improve cognitive functioning. Matcha can also help you to lose weight by accelerating the rate at which your body burns calories.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although matcha tea is derived from,the same source as green tea, matcha tea is processed literally into a powder, which is what the name of the tea means.
  • Inflammation and oxidative stress, triggered by free radicals in the body, is significantly minimized by matcha tea, because it contains EGCG.
  • A 2014 University study used elderly participants to show that three months of regular consumption of matcha tea boosted the elderly participant's brain power.

"Matcha can even support a stable metabolism, keep the mind sharp and lift the mood, and purge toxins from the body."

Subject: Is celery the powerful anti-cancer weapon we have all been waitingfor?





Celery is known for being a low calorie vegetable that is also a good source of vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. However, the biggest (and perhaps most overlooked) health benefit of celery lies in its cancer-fighting properties. Two important antioxidants found in celery - apigenin and luteolin - are the key. Among other benefits, Apigenin has been shown to inhibit the growth of tumors, while Luteolin interferes with cancer cells' replication cycles. Whether you eat it raw or incorporate it into smoothies, soups or stews, celery doesn't just taste good, it can extend your life.

Key Takeaways:

  • Celery has enjoyed status as a natural medicinal treatment modality since the ninth century.
  • Celery is water-rich and hydrating, but also bursting with nutrients, such as fiber, vitamins, enzymes, minerals and antioxidants.
  • Study has shown that apigenin, which is present in celery, inhibits the expression of a protein that normally allows cancer to break down and invade tissue.

"Research has shown that celery contains two important antioxidants, called apigenin and luteolin, which have exhibited some potent chemopreventive effects."

Subject: Parsley: An Spectacular Herb With Well being Advantages





While most of us know parsley is a popular herb used in many American and European dishes, it also has many impressive health benefits. Parsley is quite low in calories, however, it's rich in critical nutrients, such as vitamins C, A, and K. Parsley is an immune-boosting herb that plays an important role in bone density, heart health, and blood clotting. The vitamin C in parsley acts as a strong antioxidant that protects cells from free radical damage. Some animal studies have shown that parsley can help to normalize high blood sugar, making it a great food for diabetics. Moreover, parsley contains carotenoids, which can reduce the risks of heart disease.

Key Takeaways:

  • Two tablespoons of the herb proffers the eater a piffling two calories and more than 100% of the needed daily allotment of vitamin K.
  • Vitamin A, of which an abundance can be found in parsley, is essential for eye and skin health.
  • Data suggests that components in parsley may aid in lowering blood sugar and improving cardiovascular health.

"Aside from its many culinary uses, parsley is highly nutritious and has been shown to have many powerful health benefits (1, 2)."

9 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight on Keto

Author: Darrell Miller (support@vitanetonline.com)
Subject: 9 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight on Keto





The keto diet can be a very effective way for individuals to shed excess pounds, but if it is not practiced correctly, the results will remain limited. In order to optimize the diet’s effectiveness, dieters who find their progress stalling should attempt to reduce the amount of carbohydrates and proteins they are eating, assess whether their overall food intake might be either too low or too high, focus on triggering ketosis, get regular sleep and exercise. If these strategies fail, it might be time to adjust inflated expectations or consider the possibility of a medical condition that is inhibiting weight loss.

Key Takeaways:

  • Eating too much protein can actually stop the ketosis process if your body processes some of the extra protein into glucose.
  • Eating too much can defeat the purpose of dieting, especially if you snack a lot, but eating too little can make your body conserve more calories by tricking it into guarding against “starvation.”
  • It can be hard for keto diet neophytes to know exactly if they’ve even reached ketosis yet except through testing for ketones.

"To calculate net carbs, simply subtract the total grams of fiber from the total grams of carbs in your foods. High-fiber keto foods like certain veggies are great choices to help keep carb consumption low while squeezing in plenty of vitamins and minerals to support better health."

Subject: The Best Keto Fiber Foods & Why You Need Them





The Keto diet is well-known for emphasizing the value of healthy fats, but that doesn't mean it neglects the importance of fiber. It is not uncommon for those transitioning to the low-carb, high fat Keto diet to experience problems with digestion. The solution is to consume high fiber foods that keep you in a state of ketosis. These include non-starchy vegetables (e.g., cabbage and asparagus) as well as seeds and nuts. Keto fiber supplements - such as Gum arabic and Chia seeds - can also serve to maintain digestive regularity.

Key Takeaways:

  • Avocado is full of both healthy fats and dietary fiber, making it a valuable staple for people on keto diets.
  • Non-starchy vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and zucchini can provide lots of fiber, vitamins and antioxidants.
  • When eaten in moderation, high-fiber nuts like pistachios, walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts can provide fiber and nutrients and help digestion.

"Eighty percent of your total daily calories should be coming from foods like olive oil, coconut oil, grass-fed butter, nuts and seeds."

Alpha-Lipoic Acid(also known as ALA) may be the next great discovery of how to affect health for the better on a cellular level. ALA is made in the center of a cell, in the mitochondria, and seems to help with weight loss, lessening the severity of diabetes, memory loss, cell degeneration and more. Since humans only make a small amount in their bodies, some supplements are available. However, there have been only limited studies on effectiveness and none at all for children.

Key Takeaways:

  • The powerhouses of human cells, specifically the mitochondria, is where alpha lipoic acid normally resides.
  • One study purported that skeletal muscle energy metabolism improved with the use of alpha lipoic acid, suggesting that improved calorie burning rates could resu!t.
  • Data further suggests that alpha lipoic acid may aid the body in maintaining health cholesterol and sugar levels.

"Since humans can only produce ALA in small amounts, many people turn to supplements to increase their intake."

Almonds are a versatile, portable, tasty and nutritious snack food. However, new research suggests that the salad topper may also have more to impart to eaters, particularly if the eaters in question number among the millions struggling under the burden of type 2 diabetes. Of the more than 400 million who struggle with the disease, worldwide, nearly 80 million cases can be found in the country of India, alone. One study, using Indian subjects with type 2 diabetes and elevated cholesterol levels, discovered some interesting results. The subjects were given whole un-roasted almonds in place of 20 calories in an otherwise balanced eating plan. The subjects heart health showed marked improvement. Another study used Chinese participants and allowed 60 grams of almonds a day. Blood sugar levels and cardiovascular aspects were not affected by this study's regime. However, for some subjects with otherwise well-controlled type 2 diabetes, blood sugar serum levels dropped. Almonds may improve inflammation, which is a factor in cardiovascular disease. They also provide vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Key Takeaways:

  • For the people who have diabetes, they have a lot of work to do to deal with it everyday.
  • Understanding the effects of diabetes and what it does will allow people to realize how stressful it could be.
  • There are a lot of studies coming out that indicate almonds to be good for the heart for people who are diabetic.

"While the almond diet offered better overall nutritional quality, neither diet with or without almonds improved blood sugar status, nor most cardiovascular risk factors as was expected. However, researchers found that among a subset."

Why does losing weight get harder with age?

Many find it harder to drop the extra pounds later in life, and science is now backing up this theory with medical evidence that point to it being true. Each year that we grow older, our metabolism drops by approximately 1%. This means that the amount of calories we burn drops by this same amount. We also tend to store more white fat as opposed to brown fat. White fat is known to store more fat cells, while brown fat helps promote an increase in heart rate and other beneficial functions.

Key Takeaways:

  • People often find that they gain weight as they age even if they are eating and exercising the same amount as before.
  • For starters, a person's metabolic rate drops as their years advance over time.

5 reasons why you should start eating mushrooms

The consumption of mushrooms leads to several health benefits, many of which are fast-acting and highly prominent. For instance, one serving of mushrooms contains over three grams of fiber which leads to the production of insulin. For those who are insulin resistant or diabetic, this may be a good way to naturally aid in increasing the presence of insulin as long as their doctor approves it. The Vitamin C and potassium within mushrooms also helps promote optimal heart health.

Key Takeaways:

  • Mushrooms contain approximately three grams of fiber per serving which can help increase insulin levels.
  • The Vitamin C and Potassium in mushrooms are vital ingredients to maintaining proper cardiovascular health.
  • Since mushrooms are low-calorie and low in fat, they naturally aid in increased weight loss.

"Mushrooms also contain selenium which has also been found to improve immune response to infection by stimulating the production of killer T-cells. The beta-glucan fibres found in the cell walls of mushrooms stimulate the immune system to fight diseases."

Try These 5 Tricks To Speed Up Your Metabolism Naturally

The best way to lose weight (and keep it off!) is not to spend time and money on trendy dietary fads, or on extreme crash diets, but to try to harness the natural power of your metabolism to burn off weight. Getting enough sleep, adding interval exercises to prevent overly repetitive workout routines, eating wholesome, organic, unprocessed foods and drinking plenty of water and green tea can all help you to boost the rate at which your metabolism burns off fat.

Key Takeaways:

  • By building more muscle you will naturally increase your metabolism due to muscles burning calories faster than fat.
  • If your body is dehydrated, your body will have an average two percent decline in its metabolism.
  • Those who do not get enough sleep have a higher body mass index due to the impact it can have on your metabolism.

"Involving many chemical processes, your metabolism is much more than a mechanism you can tweak. It is required to sustain life, as these processes occur in each and every call. Helping you turn the food you eat into usable fuel, your resting metabolism is what accounts for most of the energy you burn."

Subject: Artificial sweeteners may increase risk of diabetes in two weeks, study claims





A new study out of Australia has shown that in as little as two weeks, using no calorie sugar substitutes can actually increase your risk for type 2 diabetes. These sweeteners can actually increase your glucose tolerance, causing weight gain and high blood sugar levels in your system. This is a concern that affects both diabetics who use them to avoid ingesting sugar as well as those without diabetes who can become sick using them.

Key Takeaways:

  • Low-calorie sweeteners are safe and do not contribute to an eventual diagnosis of diabetes.
  • Low-calorie sweeteners also do not harm people that have already been diagnosed with diabetes. There are no ill effects.
  • Artificial sweeteners are contributing to weight gain and other negative body issues.

Subject: What Happens to Your Brain When You Go on a Diet





People often go on diets because they want to lose weight. A good way to diet is by just substituting what you eat with healthier things. It's not good to eat much less, though, because your body needs certain nutrients and a certain amount of calories. This tells you what can happen to your brain if you do choose to diet. It might make you think a bit before doing so or at least before choosing an extreme one.

Key Takeaways:

  • Body weight is regulated by the brain and this is why diets don't work.When you are on a diet and your weight starts to change, your brain gets this signal and pushes back to maintain the old weight.
  • The hypothalamus in your brain controls your body temperature and acts as a thermostat but it also regulates body fat. Your brain establishes, what is referred to, as a set point weight.
  • To lower your set point weight over time, eat a healthy diet of unrefined, lower calorie and simple foods. Plus, lower stress and exercise. This will help lower and maintain your weight.

"In fact, though the risks of yo-yo dieting have been contested, one 2016 study found that repeatedly going through these starvation cycles prompts your body to gain more weight."

Even the least health conscious consumer has been inundated with enough data to understand the red flag that is excess fat and cholesterol in the diet. Many of us are unaware of the nature of triglycerides, however, which are another important red flag.

Triglycerides are fat within the body that arise from calorie consumption, but not directly from fat. When we consume more calories than we need, the body transforms these calories into fat, specifically triglycerides. Therefore decreasing actual fat consumption is not necessarily the most proactive way to reduce an unhealthy excess of triglycerides.

Healthy triglyceride levels in human blood should average at less than 150 mg per deciliter. With higher levels comes a greater risk of clots and strokes. To mitigate the risk of these problems its a good idea to lower sugar and refined carbohydrate intake, as both of these categories are highly caloric, leading ultimately to a risk of high triglyceride production in the body. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 25-37 grams of sugar, or 6-9 tsps per day, for normal adults.

All of us have favorite foods, dishes, go-to condiments, that appear invariably on our plate. Whether it’s the easy-to-make no-fuss nature of the choice, the it’s ‘what my store carries appeal,’ or it just boils down to how our taste buds feel about it, we can get in nutrition rut.

Fortunately, it’s not that hard to start swapping items we use daily for other easy-to-use items that taste good, even often having a similar taste and texture to those items we already use. The plus is that the swapped in items are better for us. Better, because they’re higher, in things that matter, like protein, amino acids, fiber, vitamins and minerals, besides being lower in things we should want to avoid, like empty calories, trans fat, excess carbs, and more.

By swapping some things daily, such as trying cinnamon, or organic honey, over sugar, substituting plain, organic coffee for that latte, a veggie wrap, for that bread and meat sandwich, could have big overall benefits in reduced pounds, renewed energy and a better overall nutritional profile, making for a healthier you.

Key Takeaways:

  • Swapping out healthier ingredients in your recipes can improve your overall health
  • Sugary and starchy foods can be replaced by natural and healthy alternative
  • Guidelines,swaps and healthy recipes can be found in the provided article.

"Coffee often gets a bad rap when in fact, quality coffee consumed in moderation can have some great benefits."

Proteins are the building blocks of life. Every cell in the human body contains protein. The basic structure of protein is a chain of amino acids. You need protein in your diet to help your body repair cells and make new ones. Protein is also important for growth and development in children, teens, and pregnant women. Amino acids are found in animal sources such as meats, milk, fish, and eggs. They are also found in plant sources such as soy, beans, legumes, nut butters, and some grains (such as wheat germ and quinoa). You do not need to eat animal products to get all the protein you need in your diet.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vegetable proteins may stop early menopause according to researchers of the University of Massachusetts.
  • Between 5% and 10% of American women will experience early menopause.
  • Women who get their protein primarily from red meat have an increased chance of early menopause by 12%.

"Researchers of the study found that women whose daily calorie intake consisted of 6.5 percent of vegetable protein lowered their risk of experiencing early menopause by 16 percent, compared to women whose daily intake of vegetable protein amounted to only four percent of calories."

Subject: Dr. Mercola: How and why too much protein triggers aging and cancer





Dr. Ron Rosedale's theory several years ago that too much protein can be a bad thing is gradually becoming accepted through further research. He theorizes you should eat foods that help you burn fat and not sugar. Proteins burn sugar but diets high in fat do not and can actually be very healthy for people with diabetes and heart problems. Too much protein prevents removal of damaging cells that can lead to aging and cancer. The best diet is moderate protein, low carb and high in fat.

Key Takeaways:

  • Excessive protein intake can do more harm to your body. Any food that helps you burn fat can be beneficial to your health.
  • Restricting protein can benefit your health, especially helping the aging process.
  • Contrary to traditional belief, a low-carb, moderate protein, and high fat diet would be the healthiest balance.

"In a nutshell, this hypothesis completely ignores the “calories in, calories out” dogma, and instead focuses on foods that support hormones and growth factors that make your body burn fat rather than sugar."
