Subject: What Is Vitamin A Good For? It Turns Out a Lot of Things





Vitamin A has numerous health benefits, and is a nutrient that most people already get a sufficient amount of. Vitamin A is found in meats, eggs, seafood, fruits and vegetables. Vitamin A helps your eyesight. However, too much Vitamin A can actually cause blurred vision. Vitamin A is also known for helping your skin via retinoids. It also helps your immune system. Some studies have linked Vitamin A with a lower risk of cancer, although the science is not conclusive.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many persons in the developed world need not worry about their intake of vitamin A because they already get enough from their diet.
  • The World Health Organization doesn’t recommend supplementation for anyone living in countries like America because people already eat the things that contain it like eggs and meat.
  • Vitamin A deficiency results in eyesight issues and this is very well demonstrated in developing countries where supplementation is being proposed.

"But even if you don't have to worry about getting enough vitamin A in your diet, it's still important to know what it does in the body — here's what we know about it."

While different dieting fads forever come and go, there are certain staples of healthy eating that will always be relevant to a successful weight loss journey. For example, while it may sound counterintuitive at first, fats are an important part of a balanced diet—so long as they are healthy fats like the kind found in avocados. In place of carbohydrates, there are many creative substitutes available like zucchini noodles and spaghetti squash. Foods with few ingredients are also reliable safe bets for healthy eating.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dieters can get less caloric, filling and fiber-rich pasta options by saying no to the enriched versions, in favor of lentils, chick peas, zucchini and spaghetti squash noodles.
  • Plant proteins, like chick peas and beans are highly nutritious, cardiac friendly and cholesterol-lowing options, besides being as filling as meat.
  • Lower bad cholesterol and satisfy cravings with good fats, like avocados, tuna, salmon, olive and flax seed oil and nuts.

"Low-cal condiments like salsa, hot sauce, and mustard are an easy way to add a kick to many dishes."

Subject: Omega 3 Fatty Acid Found To Stop Liver Damage From Getting Worse





Oregon State University researchers have determined an Omega 3 fatty acid can stop the progression of liver damage in lab animals for specific type of liver disease known a nonalcoholic steatohepatitis or NASH. The Omega 3 which produces this effect is docosahexaenoic acid or (DHA) a readily available dietary supplement. However, researchers caution this treatment will most generally be used clinically since the population rarely follows dietary recommendations on supplements. NASH is caused from consumption of the western diet high in sugar, cholesterol and fats and can lead to the development of liver cancer or cirrhosis.

Key Takeaways:

  • A study with lab rats show that a type of omega 3 fatty acid offers people, who are overweight, to avoid liver issues
  • NASH is a risk factor for cirrhosis and liver cancer.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids regulate pathways, including synthesis, oxidation, and breakdown of fats in the blood.

"Characterised by liver inflammation, oxidative stress and fibrosis, NASH is a substantial risk factor for cirrhosis and liver cancer."

How much fibre should you eat daily to lose weight?

Author: Darrell Miller (support@vitanetonline.com)
Subject: How much fibre should you eat daily to lose weight?





Fiber is a necessary component of a healthy diet, and can aid in weight loss. Because fiber helps the body slowly and steadily absorb fats and carbohydrates, people who eat fiber-rich foods tend to feel fuller longer, thereby reducing the number of calories consumed. Additionally, because nutrients are released in a steady manner, they do not suffer "sugar spikes" which induce hunger and, counterproductively, more eating. Individuals should consume about 14g of fiber for every 1,000 calories in their diet, or about 25g-40g per day. While eating adequate fiber not only helps control weight and good digestive tract health, consuming excess fiber can be detrimental. Eating more than 40g of fiber a day may result in gassiness, bloating, and diarrhea or constipation.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you want to lose weight, maintaining a balanced diet is important. Such a diet includes fiber.
  • Our body cannot process fiber and doesn't absorb it but it is important to keep us regular.
  • Consuming food with a low fiber content will make you feel hungry earlier and lead you to eat more than you should.

"An average individual should not consume more than 40gms of fibre on a daily basis."

Consuming certain plants, herbs, teas and avoiding junk food and sugar all happen to be beneficial to both dieting and detoxing. A liquid juice-based diet could cause starvation. Too much salt and sugar in soups and yogurt can cause water retention so it is important to consume protein and fibers to assist detoxing. A massage in the abdominal area can help flush out toxins as well by promoting blood circulation. In having a healthy diet, you are maximizing your body's ability to detox.

Key Takeaways:

  • A detox regimen is designed to enhance the purification process that the body naturally goes through.
  • Plant based supplements are appropriate for use in the detox process

It has been 10 years of the free nutrition Expo at Dallas's Cooper Fitness Center, which starts Monday, March 6 from 8 AM to 3 PM. The Expo Brims wide ranges of interesting events including the opportunity to learn all sorts of things about nutrition. Here the author wrote some nutrition related topics with the advice of Meridan Zerner, the registered dietitian who got the Expo started. Regard to gluten, for most of us some food with gluten have valuable nutrients. Coconut oil contains high saturated fat although it has HDL-boosting effect. Ms. Zerner recommends other oils with higher qualities. We need minimum amount of protein each day and should choose it wisely. Regarding weighing daily, better do body fat measurement. Ms. Zerner said the best eating plans are tailored to your life style and try some tasty new foods, such as sorghum, seaweed or various greens.

Key Takeaways:

  • About 1 percent of the population has to avoid gluten because they have celiac disease, which is a serious auto-immune disorder
  • By completely eliminating gluten, you can cut out foods that have valuable nutrients and might end up adding more calories and more fat to your diet
  • Coconut oil is 90 percent saturated fat, which is higher than butter (64 percent), beef fat (40 percent) and even lard (40 percent). Too much saturated fat raises the LDL (a.k.a. "bad") cholesterol le

Why do my feet always cramp during workouts?

Subject: Why do my feet always cramp during workouts?





Cramping in the legs can happen with dehydration caused by exercising and sweating but cramping in the feet can have a different source. Tight footwear can often be the problem because the feet can swell when they heat up. Pressure on the top of the foot can cause cramping. Keeping the top of the shoe loose can help prevent the pressure. Occasional cramping can be relieved by rolling the foot on a ball and massaging the foot, but a podiatrist may need to be consulted.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dehydration can come into play with any type of muscle cramp
  • when it comes to your feet specifically, the most likely culprit is ill-fitting shoes
  • if you don’t have proper arch support, your shoes will bend too much midfoot, potentially leading to overuse injuries

"Your muscles need water to function properly, so when we sweat, they’re getting less and less water, becoming tighter and tighter, which can lead to contractions within the muscle"

There are different ways to get these vitamins into your system so you will have to research which foods contain them if you don't want to just go with supplements.

Key Takeaways:

  • What is "metabolism?" Metabolism is basically a set of chemical transformations of enzymes and hormones that turn nutrients into fuel.
  • Metabolism is affected by age, gender, muscle mass, and especially genetics.
  • Your metabolic rate depends on genetics. If you are predisposed to a slow metabolism, you gain weight more easily than somebody with a fast metabolism.

"The term “metabolism” shows the chemical reactions that occur in the body each day, and the energy that is burned carries out these reactions."
