How Chronic Inflammation Is A Problem For Your Brain
It's amazing how the gut and brain are connected. If the brain is unhealthy what are the factors that affect gut health? Brain fog is a common one.
When we begin to look at the term "brain fog", and what specifically it is, it's important to note where it comes from, and how it's created.
No One Values Food Anymore
Should we be asking the question are healthy foods really healthy? Society is sick and a reason is knowing why are food allergies more common now.
How has society moved away from actually valuing foods for what they can actually do and are meant to do, nourish our body and our brain. It seems the trend has been heading to making food our enemy, so to speak. Foods sitting on the shelf are no longer nurturing and healing.
What Are Antioxidants And Why Are They Good For You?
What foods are high in antioxidants? Knowing the most nutritious ones to eat is crucial for health and understanding why antioxidants are good for you.
It's important to know what antioxidants are, and I'll provide you with a different perspective as to where and how you can get those antioxidants to inevitably protect yourself against those free radicals that we discussed in the previous podcast episode.
Vegetable Amino Acids
What are the best vegetable protein food sources to use? Can you build a healthy body using only vegetable protein as food from protein sources?
I'd like to discuss more in detail about the real issue regarding obtaining proteins from mates versus proteins from plants and whether it's the same, you know there is information on both sides. This isn't here to sway you one way or another. The main pointed to remember here is that the proteins from meats and proteins, they're not the same.
Best Plant-Based Proteins
If we want to be at our healthiest, we must know which components are important and answer the question, “Are plant proteins better than meat proteins?” If one chooses to eat stricly plant proteins, i.e. being a vegan, what are the healthiest plant based proteins?
If you're wanting to stop eating meat and consume your proteins from plants, you'll certainly find numerous bits of information that seem to conflict one another in your initial science and health research. . This is especially true when it comes to eating meat and choosing not to include meat in your diet. .
The Secret Of Nature Vs. Nurture
Do you have strong gut bacteria? When it comes to the genetic makeup of that bacteria, does nature or nurture play a bigger role in it's health? These questions can be answered by looking at our intestinal fitness and intestine microbiome from a nature versus nurture aspect to determine which has the bigger and more effect.
The composition of the microbiome differs from person to person, with each one having a different bacterial makeup. For a long time, it's been thought that this variability finds its origins in our variations in our genes. This is the nature component of it.
How Flies Can Help Us Understand Our Health
Think outside the box when it comes to a quick way to lengthen your life. Are there really any unique ways to increase our lifespan? How about we look at how flies can do exactly that. Sure, you heard me. Taking a deeper look at flies can assist us to develop a higher understand our very own microbiome.
Fruit flies have a median life span of about forty days if they are not eaten quicker via a hungry animal looking for food. After doing a bit of research, I found when scientists fed the flies a mixture of probiotics and an natural supplement called Triphala, they were able to lengthen the lifestyles of the flies by as many as 26 days. The flies had a decreased risk of degenerative issues (for a fly) including extended insulin resistance and infection. The amazing part about it was those outcomes happened because of the completely altered composition of the microbiota affected by the the probiotics, which are living bacteria in their own right.
What Does It Mean To Be Holistically Healthy?
Is there a way to look at holistic nutrition as a foundation for a healthy lifestyle? The bottom line is that is formed around "healthy eating" habits and nutrition, but how do we do that? I'm going to be discussing the second pillar of health necessary to be holistically healthy, and that's being nutritionally or digestively strong.
Whether we realize it our not, our nutrition is ultimately tied to physical health. I believe it is so critical that it should have it's own pillar and could actually stand alone. Part of this is because getting the full value of nutrition is customized based on each individual's age, sex, activity level, and body chemistry; every is totally different. This in order for us to strengthen this pillar, careful attention should be placed on your diet and that you give specific focus on digestion.
What is the difference between digestion and metabolism and is there a, diet for increasing metabolism in order for you to get into your optimal health?
It's important to know that there is a correlation between digestion, absorption, and metabolism of food. In this episode of The Mental Minute I explain how metabolism is simply a trendy word for digestion, and ultimately that good digestion means good metabolism
How can you unlock the secret of better nutrition? Is nutrition he key to living longer and can a healthy gut can bring you longevity?
