Subject: Experts find that vitamin D can soothe symptoms of COPD





European scientists recently published new research in the journal Thorax which indicates that correcting a vitamin D deficiency can mitigate breathing and lung problems caused by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). COPD symptoms include chronic bronchitis, asthma that cannot be reversed and persistent difficulty with breathing. However, the benefits only apply to people who have a deficiency of the vitamin. Vitamin D can help augment the immune system while reducing harmful inflammatory responses. Good food source of vitamin D include several species of fish, as well as eggs and mushrooms l.

Key Takeaways:

  • Not specifically one disease, COPD refers to an array of chronic, serious and non-reversible lung conditions, such as emphysema.
  • COPD sufferers with low levels of vitamin D may curb symptoms by consuming bitamin-D rich foods, like salmon, beef liver and egg yolks, so suggests data.
  • The data arises from a review of four randomized controlled trials that used more than 500 overall participants.

"Carried out by a team of researchers from Europe, the study revealed that supplementing with regular doses of vitamin D safely and significantly reduced the symptoms of COPD."

Subject: 10 Reasons why vitamin D is essential for your health





Vitamin D is considered the sunshine vitamin because it is synthesized by the skin when one is exposed to the sun. It is paramount for optimal health. It can only be found in a handful of foods such as fish, mushrooms, eggs, and fortified foods. The sun is the most important source of this vitamin. Many persons tend to spend less time outdoors that is why a third of the population is deficient in vitamin D. Here are some reasons why it is beneficial to take the sun and get this vitamin. One health benefit of vitamin D is that it improves muscle function. Deficiency of this vitamin is linked to loss of muscle mass and strength. Another health benefit is that it lowers the risk of asthma attacks by half. Vitamin D can also help to prevent and treat multiple sclerosis, and protect against Alzheimer’s and parkinson’s disease. Other health benefits are outlined in the article.

Key Takeaways:

  • When one gets exposed to the sunlight, his body begins to synthesize vitamin D that is why the vitamin is called the "sunshine vitamin".
  • Although the sun is the most important source of vitamin D, it can be found in foods such as fatty fish, certain mushrooms, eggs, and fortified foods.
  • When one has a deficiency of vitamin D, it has been linked to loss of muscle mass and loss of strength.

"These days, however, most of us tend to spend less time outdoors which may explain why more than a third of the world population suffers from low levels of vitamin D."

Subject: Omega-3s can improve blood flow in the brain and prevent aging,according to international study





The inflammation of brain cells, often associated with a decrease in blood flow, can result in several troublesome cognitive symptoms such as not being able to retain memories. Omega-3s actually have the ability to protect cells against related damage, making them highly beneficial in sustaining optimal cognitive function. Not only can it help with brain health, but omega-3s also improve heart health by reducing triglyceride levels while regulating blood pressure. Both of these help contribute to a reduction in heart disease risk.

Key Takeaways:

  • Omega 3s can be gained from certain foods, such as fatty fish, nuts, and seaweed.
  • Omega 3 Vitamins can improve brain function, correcting depression, anxiety, and preventing memory problems.
  • Taking Omega 3s can contribute to better heart health and lower risk of cancer.

"A study published in the journal Nutrients showed how omega-3 supplementation is beneficial for memory decline caused by aging."

Type 2 diabetes is a major health concern, but the drugs healthcare professionals currently turn to are expensive and have negative side effects. As an alternative, researchers in Kenya have found that the spiny evergreen shrub Berberis holstii has anti-diabetic properties. It is traditionally used as a medicine against a wide variety of ailments. The researchers found that, in rats, the plant could reduce blood glucose level. Berberis holstii isn't the only alternative substance that has anti-diabetic properties, other plants/foods include fatty fish, leafy greens, cinnamon, eggs, chia seeds, and turmeric.

Key Takeaways:

  • To treat type 2 diabetes that is a public health concern around the world, doctors often turn to conventional drugs with adverse effects and which are expensive.
  • The Belberis holstii plant which researches in Kenya discovered can be used for treating diabetes is indigenous to Africa and has been used to treat diseases like malaria.
  • The study found that the root extract of the plant reduced blood glucose in the bloodstream of the rats being studied by about 30 percent.

"This spice reduces hemoglobin A1c, a marker of long-term blood sugar levels. It is also known to reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels."

Subject: Herbal additives such as cumin oil found to increase shelf life offresh Fish fillets





Fish is a popular edible. In fact the Food and Agricultural Organization estimates that fish eaters consume up to 163 million tons of the aquatic protein every year. That's a lot of fish to freeze. And, unfortunately, more so than is the case with other popular proteins, fish spoils easily, even when kept on ice. Adding a natural antimicrobial agent, such as the common kitchen spice, black cumin, could be an inexpensive and economy-boosting way to extend the shelf life of vulnerable fish. This premise has actually been tested and proven by researchers at the Firat University in Turkey, where a study that utilized black cumin oil to extend the life of fish fillets proved entirely successful. The study showed that no negative side effects endured from the process. In addition to improving the safety of fish, the researchers noted that the process was environmentally sound as well, as it required less energy.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers from the Turkish University, Firat University, have uncovered a use for the common kitchen spice, black cumin, that does not involve direct human consumption.
  • The Food and Agricultural Organization has noted that up to 163 tons of fish are consumed per year, even though the protein is very prone to spoilage, even when refrigerated.
  • The use of a natural antimicrobial agent, such as black cumin, promotes food safety, lowers energy cost and ups the value of the fish.

"The use of natural antimicrobials such as organic acids, essential oils, plant extracts, and bacteriocins could be good alternatives to ensure food safety."

Subject: Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)





Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)

Vitamin B1, which is also known as thiamine, is a vital nutrient when it comes to human nutrition. In fact, Thiamine is a vital nutrient for the human nervous system. Within this capacity, it moderates appetite, prevents memory loss and reduces the possibility of nerve inflammation.

Thiamine has the intrinsic capacity to aid in maintaining energy levels, because its used at the cellular level throughout the body. That said, it stands to reason that a Thiamine deficiency can show itself as a significant lack of endurance and in a tendency to exhaustion. Besides its profound effect on the central nervous system, Thiamine also has a decided effect on the gastrointestinal system. Fortunately, besides supplementing with vitamins, Thiamine is amply available in natural foods. High protein sources include lean pork, fish and dry roasted soybeans. Vegans can get their thiamine on too. Besides soybeans, the nutrient is available in good quantity in wheat bread, asparagus and green peas.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin B1 also helps to regulate appetite and improve memory, besides being of use to the digestive system.
  • Thiamine boosts energy at the cellular level, which is why a severe lack of the nutrient can lead to exhaustion and a lack of endurance.
  • Lean pork, fish, green peas, roasted dry soybeans, wheat bread and cooked asparagus are all good sources of Thiamine.

"Vitamin B1 also called Thiamine, helps in maintaining cellular functions and boosts the functions of the central nervous system."

Subject: Wheat Germ Oil and Fish Oil Combination Benefits In Hemodialysis Patients





A recent study has shown that giving fish oil and wheat germ oil to hemodialysis patient maintains healthy blood calcium levels. The study used a placebo control group and it was a double blind study. This is a positive finding for those concerned about mineral bonus when they are on hemodialysis. The study however was also hoping to find that these omega fatty acid supplements would also affect other minerals as well as information in the system of these patients. They did not receive the results they were looking for and further research may be necessary.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chronic kidney disease, which can lead to end-stage renal disease, generally leaves the patient with the options of only hemodialysis or transplantation.
  • Pathological changes in renal tissue start with oxidative stress and inflammatory reactions as well as changes in the metabolism of several substances, including calcium.
  • A combination of two nutritive oils, specifically wheat germ and fish, could have beneficial effects on serum calcium levels in ESRD patients, thereby helping those on hemodialysis.

"A recent randomized, placebo-controlled trial published in International Urology and Nephrology, examined the impact of combined supplementation of fish oil (FO) with wheat germ oil (WGO) on mineral-bone and inflammatory markers in HD patients."

Subject: ARE YOUR MEDICINES MAKING YOU SICK?





Several different medicines may carry a negative impact according to this piece from India's Mumbai Mirror. These medicines are intended to help those with such ailments as diabetes, acidity problems and arthritis, among others. A series of relevant fixes are also offered for the problems that could potentially be caused by these medicines. These fixes mainly involve suggestions to eat particular kinds of healthy food alternatives, including dairy, leafy vegetables, fish, sweet potatoes, eggs and many more. A doctor is also quoted to ensure that not all readers should be concerned about potential problems with these medicines.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many medications used to treat serious conditions can cause depletion of nutrients over time
  • Certain diabetic medications can cause Vitamin B12 deficiencies which can be remedied by consuming foods such as eggs, dairy, and poultry
  • It's important to talk to your doctor about a supplementation plan in order to get the right amount in your body over time

"However, many of these drugs can interfere with the availability of nutrients in your body, warns Mahesh Jayaraman, medical researcher, therapist, health advisor and co-founder of health platform Sepalika, “either because they impair the body’s ability to effectively absorb nutrients from food, or cause it to unintentionally excrete certain nutrients.”"

Subject: Mediterranean Diet found to slash risk of dementia by 35%





According to a study by the University of California following a Mediterranean diet could significantly reduce the risk of dementia. Other studies seem to agree that a diet low in meat and dairy but is rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, beans, nuts, and healthy fats significantly reduce the risk of cognitive decline. There are some studies showing that there is marked improvement in cognition when a person strictly adhered to the diet as well as decreasing inflammation, reducing obesity, healthier lipid panels and such.

Key Takeaways:

  • A Mediterranean-style diet is one low in meat and dairy but rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, cereals, beans, nuts and ‘healthy’ fats like olive oil.
  • Patients with greater diet adherence were also less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than those with lower adherence
  • The researchers also noted that the diet scheme helped improve a large number of risk factors associated with cognitive decline.

"The Mediterranean diet, which includes mostly oily fish, vegetables and nuts, has long been touted as a highly effective diet scheme against a plethora of diseases."

Subject: Plant protein found to reduce reproductive health problems in women





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: Are Plant Proteins Complete Proteins?





Our bodies use 20 different amino acids to build proteins. Some amino acids can be synthesized when we need them but there are others that our body cannot make. The 9 amino acids that our bodies need but cannot make are called essential amino acids. Foods that contain all of the essential amino acids make up complete proteins.Most animal-based foods provide complete proteins whereas plant-based foods are not and must be eaten in combinations to get the complete set of amino acids our bodies need to function.

Key Takeaways:

  • Complete proteins are protein foods that contain all of the essential amino acids
  • Animal protein beef, pork, poultry, Fish, dairy products, and eggs contain all nine essential amino acids
  • Some plant proteins, such as those found in buckwheat, quinoa, and soy, are complete proteins as well.

"Though plant proteins technically aren’t "complete," as long as you’re eating a variety of plant protein sources, your body does the work of “completing” the proteins for you."

You may have never heard of the mineral Selenium, but did you know it does wonders for our body? Selenium can be used for making electronic devices and some glass products but a small amount of this mineral can help keep our bodies healthy. Some people may have deficiency to the mineral which can cause many problems. You can find out more about selenium and how is works for us in this article

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamins and minerals are very essential for a healthy body. One such mineral that benefits the human body is selenium. Although this mineral is mostly used in electronics and glass making, a small amount of it is required by the human body as well. Selenium deficiency can lead to many possible health hazards.
  • Studies have revealed that selenium consists of antioxidant properties that improve the health of the cells in the human body. It prevents cell damage, provides defense against various infections, and contributes to the proper functioning of the thyroid gland by regulating the thyroid hormone—thyroxine (T4).
  • The common source of selenium is the soil; therefore, the amount of selenium received through plant-based produce depends on the amount of selenium present in the soil. If the soil is found to be without selenium or in traces, farmers can add selenium fertilizers to the soil to meet the required quantity. Food sources of selenium are red meat, Fish, seafood, and Brazil nuts.

"It is important to include selenium in an appropriate amount in the diet."

  • Compared with people who had the lowest levels of magnesium in their diets, people who got the most magnesium were 10 percent less likely to develop heart disease, 12 percent less likely to have a stroke and 26 percent less likely to develop diabetes.
  • The study findings suggest that increased consumption of magnesium-rich foods may have health benefits, the authors conclude.

"When researchers looked at the effect of increasing dietary magnesium by 100 milligrams a day, they didn’t find a statically meaningful impact on the total risk of cardiovascular disease or coronary heart disease."

Subject: For stress, superfoods are better than comfort foods





There is probably no person in this world that hasn’t been under stress at some time in their life. Different people have different responses to stress. Things such as exercising are actually good for the body, whereas eating comfort foods can be very harmful. If you must munch on something when under stress, try instead to eat superfoods such as broccoli, leafy greens, nuts, oily Fish, and fermented foods. Anything with high amounts of vitamin C will do, since it has been found that the supplement prevents spikes in cortisol. Sugary or caffeine-filled foods can have the opposite effect.

Key Takeaways:

  • The top superfoods that are recommended to munch on when feeling anxious are kale, broccoli, leafy greens, celery, nuts, oily Fish like salmon, fermented foods like kimchi, herbs and spices, and organic berries high in vitamin C.
  • In animal studies, vitamin C fed to rats who were undergoing stress both prevented an increase in cortisol levels and ... known signs of physical and/or emotional stress like losing body weight.
  • Animals that didn't receive the vitamin C had three times the level of cortisol in their bodies,

"Many of these 'superfoods' also work to boost glutathione in the body: an amino acid in charge of detoxification. So superfoods nourish and detoxify, and in this way, they combat stress."

Heart health: why low cholesterol is no longer the focus

Subject: Heart health: why low cholesterol is no longer the focus





One of the main focuses in healthcare today is lowering cholesterol. While it is one of the few things about improving heart health that you can change fairly easily, it is not the only factor involved. Most doctors look to the total cholesterol to give an idea of a person’s health, but the HDL is actually the most important value to know. By consuming more foods like Fish, vegetables, and nuts, we can help increase our HDL levels. This will, in turn, lower our LDL and total cholesterol values. We should be focusing on our good cholesterol, not total cholesterol.

Key Takeaways:

  • Hugely complex, cardiovascular health is influenced by multiple factors – from family history, age and gender, to weight, blood pressure and physical inactivity.
  • High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and inflammation are far more important dietary markers than LDL or total cholesterol.
  • Zabetakis’ work has identified polar lipid fractions in foods such as red wine, Fish and olive oil as potential modulators of atherogenesis – the formation of abnormal fatty or lipid masses in arterial walls.

"Foods that feature in the Mediterranean diet pyramid, such as Fish, olive oil, vegetables and nuts, can increase ‘good’ HDL cholesterol and reduce inflammation, a biochemical trigger in the development of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, cancer, HIV, type-2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s."

Subject: At least one major company has admitted to adding flavoring chemicals to its farmed Fish to make it taste more like the wild-caught varieties that consumers prefer





An aquaculture company has used artificial flavorings to give its farmed Fish the taste of wild-caught pollock. HQSM has signed a joint development agreement with the Beijing division of Newly Weds Foods Inc. to market the "sea flavor" tilapia, which is processed to give it both the texture and flavor of wild-caught Alaska pollock, a northern Pacific whiteFish that is the favored ingredient in Fish sticks, Fish fillets and similar products, as well as imitation crab meat.

Key Takeaways:

  • Company officials have admitted, however, that TiLoveYa tilapia contains flavoring chemicals designed to make it taste more like wild-caught Fish. It's unclear how that makes the Fish in any way "natural."
  • The artificially flavored Fish is widespread and hard to avoid; TiLoveYa products are available in a wide variety of retail stores, and the company also aggressively markets them to restaurants.
  • And if one company is adding artificial flavors to its Fish, you can bet that others are doing it too.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes in the United States. Some studies have shown that patients with this condition are sometimes able to control their disease effectively with supplements instead of prescription medication. While there are different degrees of any disease, it is possible that a dietary change could help control the condition. Some of the supplements that may help include chromium, biotin, vitamin D, D-chiro-inositol, and berberine. As always, people should consult their doctor before changing any therapy.

Key Takeaways:

  • This essential trace mineral makes insulin more active by helping it bind to the insulin receptor, says Stags. It is naturally occurring in meat, Fish, fruits and vegetables, spices, whole wheat bread and rye breads.
  • This chemical variant of B vitamin, helps insulin work better because it improves the glucose pathway after the insulin has bound its receptor on a cell.
  • This natural alkaloid originated in China and India where it was used in Ayurveda medicine.

"Experts say that in many cases, supplements can help manage Type 2 diabetes, the insulin-resistant form of the disease which is the most common in the United Sates."

Moderate physical activity lowers your chances of getting a heart attack by 30% to 50%. If you stick to a healthy diet you could lower your odds of getting heart disease by 25%. Fill your plate with different kinds of fruits, veggies, whole grains, Fish, and lean meats. Stay away from processed or prepared foods that often are high in salt and filled with preservatives.

Key Takeaways:

  • A large study finds that people with the most inherited risk cut their chances of having a heart attack or other heart problems in half if they didn't smoke, ate well, exercised and stayed slim.
  • The study was discussed Sunday at an American Heart Association conference in New Orleans and published online in the New England Journal of Medicine.
  • Researchers combined information on more than 55,000 people in four studies around the world. One included imaging to check for plaque building up in heart arteries.

Subject: Maternal B12 deficiency may increase child's risk of type-2 diabetes





A study presented at the Society for Endocrinology’s annual conference has shown that pregnant women who do not consume enough vitamin B12 may be putting their children at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It is believed that these women have higher BMI’s due to a poor diet and deliver babies with lower birth weight and higher cholesterol. The babies also have a higher chance of having a higher insulin resistance.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin B 12 is naturally found in animal products, including Fish, meat, poultry, eggs and milk, meaning deficiency is more likely in those following a vegan diet.
  • that babies born to mothers with B 12 deficiency had higher than normal lepton levels. As B12 is involved in methyl reactions in the body which can affect whether genes are turned on and off, we suspect it may be the latter.
  • The nutritional environment provided by the mother can permanently program the baby's health. we also see that maternal B 12 deficiency may affect fat metabolism and contribute to this risk.

Subject: Importance of Phospholipids and Peptides found in Fish oil

The demand for Fish in the world keeps on increasing as a result of health advantages associated with Fish oil. Fish oil is the oil extracted from the tissues of the oily Fish, and this oil is known to have some benefits and one of them being the reduction of inflammation in the body. Although Fish oil doesn’t contain the omega-3 fatty acids, Fish oil supplements contain these acids that are essential in the body.

Peptides found in Fish oil are organic compounds that are groups of amino acids. The peptides have various medicinal benefits that include the following.

The Fish peptides found in Fish oil help reduce vasoconstriction that gets defined as the narrowing of one’s blood vessels as a result of contraction of the muscular wall. These Fish peptides also help to reduce the thickness of the inner walls of the blood vessels that will affect blood circulation. Lastly, Fish peptides found in Fish oil always inhibit the aggregation of blood.

Fish peptides work in various ways. In their circulatory pressure function, the peptides inhibit the angiotensin converting enzyme. When the formation of angiotensin II gets inhibited, Fish peptides help relax arteries and reduce fluid volume hence improving circulation.

When one combines Fish oil together with Fish peptides, it provides higher cardio-protective advantages than using pure Fish oil.

Fish Oil

The advantages of the Fish oil supplement like krill oil revolve around their natural composition. It’s bioavailable as it has omega-3 fatty acids always attached to phospholipids. It, therefore, makes the supplement more effective and enables the body in absorbing more omega-3. The krill oil that contain phospholipids has several advantages. It always promotes one’s cardiovascular health. The main omega-3 fats include EPA and DHA that help to combat inflammation mainly in the blood vessels. In a way, it also helps to lower blood pressure and to some extent prevent strokes and heart attacks.

When taken in large quantity during pregnancy, the omega-3 found in these supplements helps a lot in improving neurological development in the newborns. They will help in the child’s development of the eyes, central nervous system and the brain.

The phospholipids that contain omega-3 fatty acids are said to be water dispersible. As a result, this makes them gentler on one’s stomach, hence, the body absorbs them more easily. These phospholipids are also natural and important parts of the cells compared to other marine oil omega-3s.

They help in both the heart and brain health. As a result of proper blood circulation, it ensures that oxygen is also well supplied within the body. They also have the advantages of a healthy inflammation and play a major role in women’s health. Lastly, phospholipids are safe for taking into the body as they are natural supplements.

Phospholipids are absorbed into the body at a faster rate compared to triglycerides found in Fish oil. They have a superior absorption rate, and they are more effective in the body. The other reason you should go for phospholipids is that they aren’t chemically altered and are therefore safe for consumption.

In conclusion, the benefits of peptides found in the Fish oil and phospholipids include protection of one’s brain from oxidative damage, improve focus as well as mental agility and reduce any depression symptoms. They also strengthen the blood vessels and the arteries.

Must Read Facts About Your Thyroid Hormone and Iodine

Subject: Must Read Facts About Your Thyroid Hormone and Iodine

The thyroid is that butterfly-shaped gland found in front of the neck area, only a little lower than the Adam's apple. It's the organ responsible for your body's metabolism, the process related to how you burn up calories. The thyroid gland makes use of iodine to produce thyroid hormone. That's the chemical substance released into the bloodstream to perform the metabolic functions of the thyroid. With inadequate thyroid hormones, your body produces less energy, slowing down metabolism. Without iodine, the thyroid is unable to produce thyroid hormones. 

Hypothyroidism

Sometimes, the thyroid slows down, causing a common disease, we all know as hypothyroidism.  It's simply the case when an insufficient amount of thyroid hormones is manufactured by the thyroid gland.  It is usually diagnosed through blood tests that check hormone levels.

Thyroid Gland

Signs of Hypothyroidism

If you have a slow thyroid or underactive thyroid disease (another name of Hypothyroidism), you may observe one of the following signs.  However, know that these symptoms may mimic other health problems which makes it more difficult to diagnose.

  • Irregular menstrual period
  • Constipation
  • Anxiety; depression
  • Having dry skin, dry hair and hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Being sensitive to cold temperature
  • Slow heart rate
  • Having a swollen thyroid gland (goiter)
  • Having weight problems (either quickly gain weight or having difficulty in losing weight)
  • Suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome (pain, tingling and numb sensations in the hand)

How to Avoid Hypothyroidism

One of the causes of the thyroid to slow down is having too little iodine in your diet. Remember, iodine is the required component to produce thyroid hormones.  And our body doesn't have iodine.  Thus, it should come from an external source, that is, through the foods we eat.  You need to boost up iodine in your diet. Use only iodized salt when seasoning food.  As much as possible, also eat shellFish, dairy products, eggs, saltwater Fishes, seaweeds and other saltwater edible food.

Subject: How Can I Tell If Im Lacking Silica In My Diet?

silica plantUses of silica

Our body requires the mineral silica for it to function normally. The body uses this mineral together with calcium for growing and maintaining of strong bones. Silica is also a very strong anti-aging mineral and plays a big role in the prevention of osteoporosis (a condition in which bones become very fragile and likely to fracture). It also contributes to the strength, flexibility and integrity of connective tissues such as the ones found in bones, skin, nails and blood vessels. It is also important for the growth of the skin, hairs and fingernails. It also helps in the healing process, as it is an integral part of the immune system. It is also a vital component of the teeth whereby it strengthens the enamel hence preventing problems such as gum recessions and bleeding gums. We therefore require silica daily due to its many important functions in the body.

Silica deficiency

There are some symptoms of silica deficiency that will indicate you are missing it in your diet. These include poor formation of bones, osteoporosis, formation of wrinkles, and aging of the skin, brittleness of both finger and toenails and thinness of hair. The main symptom of this deficiency is sensitive to cold, meaning that you will feel cold even in the hottest summer days.

Foods rich in silica

Fibrous foods are the richest in this important mineral. Such foods are peppers, celery, potatoes, carrots, cereals, beets and unrefined grains. Other sources of the mineral are apples, almonds, raw cabbage, pumpkins, peanuts, honey, Fish, cucumber, cherries, cons and raisins. Absorbing silica from foods is always difficult and that why it is important to consume these foods in large quantities. Grains have been shown to consist the highest level of absorbable silica.


It is very important to ensure your diet includes foods rich in silica. This is because it performs many functions in the body and its deficiency can pose many health problems.

Food varieties such as meat, Fish, poultry, fruits and vegetables contain iron capable of maintaining its optimum level in the body system.

Health benefits of iron are numerous, they include-

A) Muscle function.
Iron is usually found in a muscle protein called the myoglobin and is very important for a good or proper muscle health. Myoglobin is responsible for the transportation and diffusion of oxygen from the hemoglobin to muscle cells, a process needed for muscle contraction.

B) Hemoglobin formation.
It is considered as the main health benefit of iron consumption since hemoglobin transports oxygen to all the other different parts of the body.

C) Iron deficiency anemia.
Iron is so vital to the body that in the case of very low levels, one develops anemia. It is also used to treat anemic conditions as well as associated symptoms like headaches, body weakness, fatigue and many more.

D) Brain function.
The human brain uses approximately 20% of the bloodstream oxygen, which is supplied to it by iron making it very necessary for proper brain health.

E) Strengthening immunity.
Iron also improves the body's immune system and therefore diseases cannot get in easily.

F) Body temperature regulation.
Being present in the hemoglobin, which gives the blood its dark red color, iron regulates the body temperature keeping it suitable for various enzymatic as well as metabolic reactions to occur efficiently.

While essential, they are not to be overused, or they start being unhelpful by adding too much fat to the diet.

Omega 7's: are monounsaturated fatty acids, palmitoleic acid and vaccenic acid. Palmitoleic acids are commonly found in fat tissue of the human body, and in the liver. Animal oils, macadamia nut oil, vegetable oils, and marine oils are good sources of omega 7's. They're considered a beneficial fatty acid by increasing insulin sensitivity by lowering inflammation. They also aid in the destruction in of insulin beta cells in the pancreas. This action has been proven to reduce insulin levels, which have claims that omega 7's are helpful in weight loss. Other uses include support of healthy skin, and soothing the gastrointestinal tract.

Omega 9: fatty acids are not considered essential fatty acids since they're produced by the body. They're obtained from olive oil, and other monounsaturated fats. They contain the same heart healthy benefits as omega 3's and 6's helping lower cholesterol, our body makes them as needed.

Omega oils are important for our overall health, especially heart health. Omega 7s are important to control insulin levels, and may aid with weight loss. Supplementing omega 3, 6, and 7 can lead to better cholesterol levels, and healthier skin.
