    In the era where there has been an increase in people's interest in physical health, one of the biggest things that has taken trend is that of OMEGA-3s and claims that they are good for a variety of reasons. Although until recently it has been unknown why it was good for you, new research has now shown that these nutrients can be beneficial for your heart, especially in terms of protecting it against DNA damage that can injure blood vessels.

    Key Takeaways:

    • To help stop the plague that is affecting the planet in the form of heart and arterial diseases, experts recommend foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
    • Although experts have not explained why omega-3 fatty acids are good for heart health, new research has found that it has components that prevents free radicals from causing harm.
    • Omega-3 fatty acids are rich in EPA and DHA which reduce the harm caused by intracellular reactive oxygen species to heart cells.

    "Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), components found in omega-3 fatty acids, promote antioxidant responses in the human aortic endothelial cells, protecting DNA from oxidative stress from reactive oxygen species (ROS)."

    Subject: Does Hemp Oil Have Health Benefits?





    Hemp oil is a type of CBD oil that is extracted from the hemp plant and has only trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive substance in marijuana. Because the THC levels in hemp are so low (and legal), it does not give you that high affect. Hemp is high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and is a known anti-inflammatory. Some claim the fatty acids in hemp oil alleviate anxiety, physical, and emotional pain linked to PMS and other conditions. According to some research, the polyunsaturated fats in hemp oil may decrease cholesterol levels, making it a heart healthy substance. However, most hemp studies have not been conducted on humans and the substance itself has not been thoroughly tested for heavy metals, plastics or pesticides. For these reasons, it may be best to wait until hemp is more closely regulated before making it a part of your daily routine.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Many persons seem to have taken on the trend that CBD oil is good for them because it has many health benefits.
    • Many persons think that hemp oil, the sister to CBD oil is good for them, and believe the claims that it is good for anxiety and sleep.
    • The difference between hemp and marijuana is that marijuana contains high amount of THC, the stuff that makes one high in cannabis, while hemp contains low amount.

    "Not only does hemp oil not have any real health benefits, but it may contain stuff that's actually bad for you."

    Those who follow paleobiology have a deep belief that life started within the ocean itself. Right now, those who are highly active in physical activity typically rely on supplemental beverages that include a large amount of essential vitamins and minerals, but they often include a lot of preservatives as well. Fortunately, a recent study showed that athletes are able to thrive and preform just as well when ingesting discovery of deep ocean minerals (DOMs) through natural avenues.

    Key Takeaways:

    • 70 minerals, sourced from the oceanic depths, were the recent focus of a multinational study.
    • These specific 70 minerals, purports the study, may increase brain blood flow and hemoglobin post-exercise.
    • Although athletes routinely ingest energy-boosting post-workout drinks, many are highly processed and replete with artificial ingredients.

    "From this idea, scientists hypothesized that ingesting the minerals from deep ocean water may replenish incomplete molecular complexities and increase our physical capacity against energy-consuming and physically taxing challenges."

    • The gingko biloba tree can be used for longevity because the tree can live for up to 1,000 years and also, it can be used to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
    • An analysis of the tree extract using 21 trials found that the tree can help those with mild cognitive impairment to improve their thinking.

    "The ginkgo biloba tree might not give off the most pleasant smell, but hiding beneath its rancid odor is the power to heal more than 100 different diseases."

Many dog owners notice that their canine friends are experiencing similar issues, and begin to wonder if CBD could also be beneficial to man's best friend. Fortunately, research is showing that since CBD contains little to no traces of THC, the odds are pretty high that it is safe for canine consumption within reason.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Some dog owners are wary of CBD oil because it comes from the marijuana plant.
    • Owners of elderly dogs report that CBD oil is effective in reducing pain and anxiety in these dogs.
    • CBD oil can replace phenobarbital as a treatment for dogs that have seizures.

    "The final product includes very little to no THC trace, giving your dog all the benefits with the least potential for risk."

    Subject: The common causes of candida overgrowth





    Candida albicans is a form of yeast that is present in small colonies across the human body. Unfortunately, when these clusters grow to an abnormal size, the heightened populations can cause some serious health concerns such as mouth ulcers, gastrointestinal issues, and even psychological symptoms. Researchers are now finding links between the overgrowth of Candida albicans and potential triggers such as: fermented foods like pickles, contraceptives, the overuse of antibiotics, and several other contributing factors.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Candida albicans is common in the human body but common signs of candidiasis or candida overgrowth include bloating, diarrhea, fatigue, flatulence, and joint pain.
    • Contraceptives or birth control pills, and intrauterine devices can kill good bacteria and encourage the growth of yeast in the human body.
    • Although fermented foods like kimchi, pickles and sauerkraut, are good for the gut bacteria, they can also encourage candida overgrowth so it is wise to eliminate them.

    "However, when candida populations swell into an overgrowth, you can develop severe health problems."

    Some people may wonder if pink Himalayan salt has any health benefits. Pink salt is all over the place. You might winder if it is actually worth the attention it gets. There is a science behind this recent health phenomenon.Pink Himalayan salt is made from rock crystals of salt that have been mined from areas that are close to the Himalayas, often in the country of Pakistan. It gets its rosy hue from trace minerals in the salt.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Himalayan Salt, when used as a lamp, is purported to cause positive health effects by releasing negative ions, but the degree to which it does this is uncertain.
    • Although some claim it has health benefits over white salt, it is very similar health-wise. It is just better looking and more costly.
    • Himalayan salt has few proven health benefits, whether in lamp form or when eaten.

    The picture of the different types of salts was interesting. I did not know it came in so many color. I have to admit I switched from regular table salt to sea salt. Just like the article states we have a lot of sea salt choices theses days. The most beneficial salt, which has more nutrients is said to be a brownish color. I know for myself it would be hard to make an adjustment from white salt to salt brown in color.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLWjwLZ2Nqg&rel=0

    Key Takeaways:

    • The FDA mandates that salts, not having iodine, must warn the consumer of this fact specifically, on the label.

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.

    Subject: Improving Liver Health - Does NAC Help Improve Liver Health?

    All organs in our body have purposes why they exist. This includes our football size liver. Many people take their liver health for granted. Since it is an internal organ, we do not see the actual effects of toxins and unhealthy lifestyle as they slowly destroy the liver. However, we might feel the results from time to time. Our liver has the size of a football, making it a star football player in our digestive system where everything passes through it. It cleanses the blood by taking away hazardous chemicals, converting the liquid into bile, which is then used to break down fat from the food we eat. The liver also stores glucose, a sugar that quickly boosts energy. So how do we take care of our liver?

    Liver


    How to Take Care of Liver Health

    • Moderately drink alcohol

    It is okay to enjoy and have fun, but to do it every day with a lot of alcohol is dangerous. Drinking too much alcohol leads to the swelling of liver cells.

    • Maintain a healthy diet and have regular exercise

    Controlling what you eat and good amount of exercise will help you avoid non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases, a condition that might lead to severe liver damage.

    • Be careful with the medicines you are taking

    There are some medicines such as Tylenol and cholesterol drugs that may hurt your liver when taken in uncontrolled doses. Also avoid taking medicines with alcohol, because they are not a good combination, or joining different drugs together.

    • N-acetyl cysteine (NAC)

    Many studies say that liver diseases are caused by the lack of Glutathione or GSH in our body. That is why NAC comes to the rescue.

    NAC is a small protein powerful to restore inTracellular level of Glutathione or GSH, an effective antioxidant. The GSH is most needed by those who have liver diseases because it protects the liver against toxicity. When you are suffering from stress caused by a chronic liver disease, there is the reduction of glutathione, which is why there is a need to supplement it. NAC also helps to protect against present liver damages by reducing a wide range of chronic, deteriorating issues which include liver inflammation and impaired glucose control.

    Taking good care of our liver health is like grooming a football superstar. Always watch out of the things you are doing to it.

    Subject: What Are Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) And What Herbs Contain Them?

    Glycosaminoglycans refers to a linear unbranched polysacharide chain molecule composed of disaccharides repeats with a high negative charge due to the presence of Uronic acid components and sulfate esters with some hydoxyl (OH) groups as part of its structural components. They have varying molecular size and sulfation depending on the tissue they are located on and their state. They function to attract cations and maintain the hydration of the exTracellular membrane (E.C.M).

    Glycoaminoglycans are classified into different groups based on different categories which include; glycosidic linkages in their structure, type of the sugar moiety, sulphate groups numbers and the location of the sulfate groups. Based on this various classification categories six major groups of GAGs exists, namely; heparin, hyaluronan, dermatan sulfate, heparin sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, and keratan sulfate.

    GAGs have a high solvation degree and and are as well highly viscous. This is beneficial to the body in that it helps to cushion and lubricate various connective tissues and body joints respectively. It therefore protects an individual from joint pains due to poor lubrication of the joints causing the bone to slide over each other. They also form the building blocks of proteoglycans which are the major building blocks of the exTracellular matrix. Due to this property they are vital in determining the cellular activities such as cell division because the cell division machinery has to attach itself to the exTracellular matrix before the division process is initiated. Some body tissues such as the nerve cells and the muscle cells require continuous cell division to replace worn out cells for the normal functioning. This means that structural deformities in the exTracellular matrix will hinder the division process to occur and is most likely to lead to some neurodegenerative complexions.

    Recent studies have linked GAGs to play a role in the cell biology of cancer.They have been established as the key macromolecules affecting cell properties and functions through interaction with key growth factors or by acting directly as receptor molecules. Through this it has been findings they play a vital role in the cell signaling process thus playing a role in the cancer disease progression.Heparin and heparin sulfate have been indicated through studies to have anti-tumor effects by preventing the process of angiogenesis which is the first step in cancer metastasis.Some have been associated with anti-coagulant properties.

    Seaweed

    Therefore GAGs are important molecules which play a vital role in protection against various forms of cancers. GAGs aremostly obtained from animal sources. The animal sources include shark fish and ray skeletons. Plants are also sources of GAGs, however their digestion by the human system is not possible. Seaweed is one herb that is rich in GAGs. However as earlier explain the digestion of the sea weed by the animal digestive system is quite a challenge. It is therefore recommended that we eat foods rich in proteins, and carbohydrates which can be used to synthesize GAGs in the body.

    In summary, GAGs are heteropolymers which acts as the building blocks of the exTracellular matrix in animals. The body has the ability to synthesize GAGs naturally hence nutritional supplement is required for the body to obtain key components necessary for the synthesis.

    Trace mineralsWhat is Trace Minerals

    Trace minerals are the essential minerals for proper functioning of our bodies. Trace minerals are zinc, calcium, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, selenium, etc., the best way to get these minerals is through a diet rich in nutrients. The modern busy lifestyle prevents us from obtaining these minerals, also modern diets, have led to a deficiency in some of the most essential minerals. That is why a proper Trace mineral supplementation is necessary for optimal health.

    Most important Trace minerals are:

          Zinc is a mineral found in meat, poultry, beans, nuts, seafood. The recommended daily intake for adult males is 11 mg and 8 mg for female. Zinc deficiency leads to slow recovery of injuries, diarrhea in children, stunted growth; it may disrupt the thyroid functioning, low levels of testosterone. Zinc is necessary for the immune system, it cures the common cold faster, and it is used for Attention deficit disorder, Down syndrome, colitis and many other illnesses.

          Copper is a mineral mostly found in meat, and many foods we already intake. The recommended daily intake of copper is only 2 mg. The National center for biotechnology information warns about recent studies who found copper deficiency. Copper deficiency leads to Menkes' syndrome, anemia, and neutropenia.

          Iodine - 3. 40% of the world population is at risk of iodine deficiency. The use of iodine is at risk of extinction because of using iodine in salt. Many people do not have the proper nutrition to obtain the daily need of iodine. Iodine deficiency leads to hyperthyroidism, enlargement of the thyroid gland, miscarriages in pregnancy, preterm delivery of babies, and to permanent mental damage in babies. Iodine is found in meat, dairy products, soy, eggs, milk, and ice cream.

          Manganese is a mineral responsible for blood clotting, sex hormones, and it forms the connective tissue. Manganese is found in the bones, kidneys, pancreas, adrenal, and pituitary glands. According to the University of Maryland, 37% of the Americans are at risk of manganese deficiency, and do not take the daily recommended intake of manganese. Manganese deficiency changes the fat metabolism; it causes bone deformities, skin rash, increases calcium in blood, and causes many other symptoms, which lead to serious medical problems. Manganese is found in nuts, seeds, whole grains.

          Chromium is found in meat, whole grain, some fruits, but these foods provide a very small amount of chromium in the body. The recommended daily intake of chromium is 50-200 mg a day and food provides 2 mg per serving. The elder are at a higher risk of chromium deficiency. Research has found that chromium deficiency leads to glucose intolerance and insulin resistance, and increased chromium intake has fixed diabetes symptoms in patients.

    Who is at risk of Trace mineral deficiency?

    Vegetarians are at a higher risk of mineral deficiency as most of the sources of these minerals are coming from meat. Vegetarians should consider taking Trace mineral supplementation. We need a very small amount of minerals for proper functioning of our bodies, still we have a mineral deficiency which leads to many illnesses, improper functioning in the body. The mineral deficiency has led to lower life span in humans. Our ancestors lived longer because they ate home cooked food, rich in the most important nutrients. Daily Trace mineral supplementation is essential for returning our health and immune system on the right track. That is why we all need proper Trace mineral supplementation to compensate for the low levels of minerals.

    Subject: What Vitamins Help Fight Leg Muscle Cramps?

    muscle crampsMuscle cramps

    Leg muscle cramps are sudden and involuntary contractions of the calf muscles. They are painful, and can happen while in the middle of a work out. Cramps are quite bothering, especially when at work, or during sleeping hours at night. The popular known causes of muscle cramps include; vitamin and mineral deficiency, muscle strain, and dehydration. In this article, we shall look at some of the vitamins and minerals that can relieve leg muscle cramps.

    Vitamin D

    Vitamin D helps in strengthening muscles and bones. Low level of vitamin D in blood may result to leg cramps. Vitamin D is synthesized in the body in the presence of sunlight. There are also diets rich in vitamin D such as fish and milk. If the level of vitamin D is still too low, you can look for supplements under physician’s instructions.

    Vitamin B complex


    Vitamin B is essential in the generation of energy, appropriate nerve function, and muscle function. Deficiency in vitamin B can lead to leg cramps. The vitamin B complex supplement is used in relieving cramps. However, diets rich in vitamin B include; eggs, dairy products, beans, vegetables, and meat.

    Sodium

    Sodium is an electrolyte in the body that facilitates impulse transmission, and muscle contractions. Low amount of sodium can be the cause of cramps in your leg calf muscles. Major cause of low level of sodium in the body is dehydrated, maybe due to excessive sweating. Therefore, you can add a little amount of salt in meals.

    Magnesium


    Magnesium is an electrolyte in the body that works together with sodium and potassium during impulse transmission. Impulse transmission involves muscle contractions, when calcium and potassium ions are moving in and out of cells. Movement of calcium and potassium in cells is facilitated by magnesium. Therefore, foods rich in magnesium help to prevent muscle fatigue. These foods include; avocado, spinach, cashew nuts, and beans.

    Peony

    Peony is a plant that’s used to manufacture medicine. Its roots are processed, and used as a supplement for relieving muscle cramps, among other disorders. Peony medicine is believed to prevent release of body chemicals that cause cramps in the legs.

    Zinc


    Zinc is an essential Trace element since it’s required in small quantities in human body. Zinc can be used as supplement for relieving muscle cramps associated with liver disorder.

    Trace mineralsMinerals

    A few carbs, a slice of bacon or two, a glass of milk and later a bottle of mixed tropical fruit juice. Sounds like quite a balanced meal. A good meal most definitely doesn’t lack the chemical elements or minerals that are in abundance in the human body. These major elements in order of profusion are calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, chlorine and magnesium. But are these the only minerals we require?

    Trace minerals

    While the above are the main ones, there are other minerals that are essential to good health but are required in very small quantities. These minerals include iron, copper, zinc, molybdenum, cobalt, iodine, bromine and selenium; collectively known as Trace minerals. Though in small amounts, they are crucial for immune system function, metabolism and antioxidant protection. A number of health complications such as senility, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes and depression have been linked to Trace mineral deficiency.

    Despite society having more nutritious than ever before, the quality of food has declined as seen in the dwindling quantities of these Trace elements in our diet. This can be mainly attributed to lack of these nutrients in the soil due to years of erosion and aggressive farming embraced by farmers in order to meet the demands of the population. Soils have become depleted, resulting in deficiency of Trace elements in our meals. So much for modern practices working against mankind.

    All is not lost though. There are supplements readily available to tackle this need and come recommended for preventing and managing a number of conditions. They can be taken to address ailments such as Osteoporosis, a disease that causes weakening of bones. Copper, iron, magnesium zinc and manganese help increase bone mass and density and reverse such bone deterioration. Iron also happens to be important in making blood components. The benefits of these supplements can therefore not be underestimated.

    glutenWhat is Gluten

    Gluten is a protein found mainly in grains, which include wheat, farro, durum, bulgur, spelt, semolina and many others. It is also found in other foods and is present in some toothpaste brands. Gluten is difficult to completely digest and can cause serious health problems for some people. It is for this reason that many people are increasingly consuming gluten free diet in an attempt at avoiding its negative health effects. The following is a look at the adverse effects of gluten in the human body.

    What Gluten can Do

    Some people’s bodies react to the presence of the protein by attacking it and the body tissue surrounding it, which results to numerous health problems in the body. Gluten is responsible for a condition referred to as celiac disease, which is a serious form of gluten sensitivity. This disease is considered an autoimmune disease because the body’s immune system attacks the protein and the cells of the digestive tract’s enzymes. This leads to bloating, gas, stomach pain, anemia, skin rashes, muscle cramps and bone pain. Other symptoms include missed periods in women, stunted growth in children, seizures, mouth sores, calcium deficiency, nerve damage and nutrient malabsorption.

    Other serious effects of ingesting gluten

    Include increased risk of developing some forms of cancer and chronic diarrhea. The protein has also been found to cause intestinal inflammation and degeneration of intestinal lining. Weakened intestines are dangerous because they can permit foreign substances into the blood stream, which is common in persons suffering from celiac disease.

    Gluten is also associated with numerous disorders of the brain. Conclusive studies have associated the protein to a condition referred to as cerebellar ataxia. Its symptoms include difficulties in coordinating balance, problems with speech and movement. Gluten free diet results to significant improvement in health for persons suffering from autism, epilepsy and schizophrenia.

    It has been observed that gluten may be addictive, which is why many people crave for meals made of wheat and other grains. This has not been conclusively proven but there are studies that suggest that Traces of the protein’s exorphins can find their way into the human brain.

    Gluten Free

    Gluten free diet is healthy because it improves a person’s bone density, reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Any people experience significant benefits in their mental, emotional and physical health after eliminating the protein from their diets. It is, therefore, important that a gluten free diet be consumed especially by people who react negatively to it.

    Subject: Why Trace Minerals are Vital to Our Body?

    Minerals in our body

    minerals foodMajority, if not all of the non-organic elements or minerals are present in the human body. Some are vital in our diet and can be derived from the food that we eat. Minerals are categorized into macro/major minerals and the micro/Trace minerals.

    An introduction to Trace minerals

    Trace minerals are also essential to our body but only required in minimal amounts such as selenium, copper, iodine, chromium, manganese, fluoride, cobalt and molybdenum. Even though it is difficult to induce a dietary deficit of these minerals, most of them are considered lethal if taken in unnecessary amounts. It simply means that it is important for individuals who are taking supplements to be well aware of the amount of these elements that they are taking, especially if taken for an extended period.

    What benefits can be gained?

    These minerals serve as catalysts for different biological functions that occur in the body such as transmission of messages in our nervous system or muscle response. Always remember that these minerals are vital factors for good health, particularly with the development of blood cells and bones.

    Chromium is responsible for the storage of starch and sugar as well as a vital factor for the maintenance of normal metabolism. As for copper, it is also considered as an essential requirement since it helps in strengthening the bones and blood vessels. This mineral is readily found in some meats and sea food products. Iodine is a vital mineral since it has a role in the production of thyroxine hormone that ensures the proper functioning of the thyroid gland. This mineral is present in iodized salt and sea food. Fluoride is responsible for strengthening your bones and teeth. Lastly, zinc helps keep the immune system strong. It is present in lamb, chicken, pork and sea food.

    Overall, Trace minerals are vital for the proper functioning of our body. Just make sure that only the required amount is taken in, especially individuals who are taking supplements.

    saltWhat is Iodine

    Iodine is a mineral that is found in Trace amounts in the body. Its effects in weight loss are, however, significant because it supports the thyroid gland’s function in accelerating metabolism. The following is a look at how iodine is important for weight management.

    Studies on Iodine

    Studies have conclusively proven that insufficient intake of iodine in the body has resulted to the enlargement of the thyroid gland or a drop in its functional capabilities. These result to weight gain even where there is a reduction in the consumption of calories.

    A properly functioning thyroid gland is essential because it eliminates chances of body fat accumulation and water retention, which contribute to weight gain. An underactive thyroid, also known as hypothyroidism can, however, be corrected by daily intake of iodine by eating foods rich in the mineral or supplementation.

    Natural sources of iodine

    Include tea, sweet potatoes, broccoli, cabbage, onions, iodized salt, peanuts, mustard, pine nuts, bladderwrack, kelp and various sea vegetables. Adults are required to consume at least 150 micrograms of iodine on a daily basis to ensure that their thyroid glands functioning optimally.

    How Iodine Works

    Iodine works by increasing the production of T4, which is a hormone that adjusts the body’s rate of burning fat and metabolism. It also increases mental and physical activities, which play an important role in weight loss.

    Precaution

    It is important to exercise care when increasing the intake of iodine because too much of it is also detrimental. Consulting a physician is advisable to ensure that the mineral is increased in moderation to ensure safety.

    In conclusion

    The amount of iodine in ones diet has a significant effect on weight loss. It is, therefore, necessary to ensure that the recommended daily amount of the mineral is consumed to ensure that the body is functioning optimally. Signs of iodine deficiency include fatigue, poor memory, impotence, low sex drive, irritability and problems in ones complexion, hair, teeth, and nails.

    Subject: Difference between colloidal minerals and ionic minerals.

    Minerals are generally divided into two forms.

    Colloids Mineral

    Colloids are one form of minerals, where minerals are in stable form. In colloidal form, minerals are evenly distributed in the medium. Minerals in this form will remain in large and organized pattern, and thereby remain in suspension without settling down. These types of minerals are not directly absorbed by the body since they don’t have that electric charge like other minerals. The size of these minerals is also one of the reasons for this. So we can define colloids as, it is a substance, which will not diffuse easily when it is suspended in a liquid medium. Though the colloidal minerals are more dispersed in the body, the absorption is not influenced by that. In order to absorb colloidal minerals, body needs to break down these minerals into smaller units.

    Ionic Mineral

    On the other hand, ionic minerals can be easily absorbed through the human cell membranes. The main reason for this is, ionic minerals are charged and so the body needs to apply less amount of energy to get them absorbed. The colloidal minerals need to break down into smaller units to attain electric charge and thereby to get absorbed. The electric charge of ionic minerals helps them to travel from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration. Atoms or group of atoms together forms the ionic minerals. They have got charge either positive or negative. During the time of absorption, the body charges the ions and makes absorption easier. Ionic minerals are more easily absorbed by the body than the colloidal minerals, since they have to go through all those process. Even after the different steps of absorption of colloidal minerals, all of them are not utilized by the body. Sodium Chloride and Potassium Chloride are 2 examples for ionic minerals.

    antioxidantZinc

    Zinc is an important Trace mineral found in our bodies. Its importance cannot be underestimated for its lack would cause vital body functions to come to a stop.The amount of zinc found in our bodies is about 3 to 4 grams. Zinc is also known to help people escape dangerous diseases like acne, Alzheimer's and many others. Below is a brief account of the various vital functions of zinc:

    It Stimulates Enzymes in the Body

    Zinc enables vital body functions to occur.This is because it stimulates over a 100 enzymes in the body. Enzymes are known to aid in body processes including such activities as making vital body components or helping break down chemicals that the body does not need or would rather harm it, if left to accumulate. Still in enzymatic functions, zinc plays a role in the formation of DNA, bones and breakdown of the proteins we eat.

    Zinc Helps Boost your Immunity

    Zinc is very vital when it comes to protecting our bodies against infections. It achieves this function in a multiplicity of ways, the very first being the pivotal role it plays in the healing of wounds. Zinc is also found in body secretions that kill bacteria and viruses which may find their way into our bodies. This is made possible by the fact that it has anti-microbial effects.

    Other Benefits of Zinc in the Body

    Zinc is also known to assist in protecting our cell membranes from the harmful effects of metals such as copper and iron. Another similar function of zinc is its ability to assist the liver form an antioxidant known as super-peroxide that assists in elimination of harmful toxins that would otherwise harm the body. Zinc will also help reduce poor night vision for it will slow ocular degeneration.

    From the above facts about the importance of zinc, it is relevant that individuals supply their diets with reasonable amount of this mineral which is found in many common foods like red meat, poultry, oysters and vegetables like spinach. This would ensure a healthy life devoid of diseases.

    What is Chromium Picolinate

    Chromium picolinate is among the essential Trace minerals that have received a lot of attention as dietary supplements. While it is know to be inhibit blood sugar levels, there are recurring debates that remain unsettled. However, there are recent studies that consistently revealed the augmenting effect of chromium to the actions of the hormone insulin. That then suggests the intake of the said mineral as it seconds the claims of it being an effective solution to control blood sugar or glucose levels of people intolerant to carbohydrates.

    In the uptake of carbohydrates, they are broken down into sugar, followed by absorption to the blood. The amount of blood sugar and insulin rising vary from one food to another. By slowing rate of sugar release to the bloodstream is the initial step towards controlling glucose levels, which is also a vital goal of any type of healthy diet.

    Benefits of Chromium Picolinate

    Keeping your blood sugar at a normal level does everything. May it be to gain or lose weight, reduce fat, curbing craving pangs and lowering appetites, as well as warding off numerous chronic diseases such as diaebetes and heart attack, a normal blood sugar level does it all. For that matter, chromium is really of the essence. And here are some of its major health benefits. 

    Blood Sugar Control

    A study was once conducted where a loaf of bread was prepared with 400 micrograms chromium. After consuming the bread, there was a 23% blood sugar decline in the patient, which points out to chromium picolinate as an effective solution to lower glycemic indexes of meals.

    Cholesterol Level Control

    Chromium also has an important role for fat metabolism. After further investigations, chromium's different effects on lipids were finally discerned. Some of the reports included how chromium reduced triglyceride levels, as well as total LDL cholesterol. These basically meant that the chemical compound can lower risks for different heart diseases.

    Curbs Down Carb Cravings

    One of the biggest reasons why many people suffer from diabetes is the indulgence to cravings, particularly to carb-rich and starchy foods. This is known to be an addiction with mechanisms in the pleasure/guilt portion of the brain similar to opiates. By taking 600 micrograms of the chromium compound for a span of 8 weeks, the subject can be withdrawn from the said sugar laden addiction.

    Another thing worth noting is that this particular chromium compound fully remains intact within the gastric juice for several hours and does not cause any digestive drawbacks. Furthermore, a minimum of 200 to 300 micrograms supplementation is suggested for people with less severe cases to set out the stabilization of insulin production.
