Why to Eat Antioxidant Daily

We’ve all heard about antioxidants as cancer fighters. Eating foods that contain these molecules neutralise harmful free radicals. This is especially good for your brain. Free radicals break down the neurons in our brains. Many colourful fruits and vegetables are packed with antioxidants, as are some beans, whole grains, nuts and spices. There is good reason to believe that antioxidant nutrients, especially vitamin E, can help prevent damage to brain cells. Studies say that vitamin E can, not only prevent deterioration of the brain, but also actually reverse an important element of deterioration.

Think About The Water You Drink

We all know that drinking eight glasses of water in a day is a non-negotiable factor for good health. Human beings can’t store water, therefore they must replace any that is lost. Water is the highway that moves nutrients and wastes between cells and organs. It carries food through digestive system, transports nutrients to cells and tissues, and carries waste out of our body. Since water is so crucial for our wellbeing, naturally the quality of water matters. Experts all over the world agree that mineral water is better than packaged drinking water, which is purified through the Reverse Osmosis process. The R.O. water purification method involves forcing water through a semi-permeable

Iron

Iron is among the most abundant minerals in the earth’s crust. Yet, iron deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in the world. Functions • Transporting oxygen in the blood. • Co-factor in energy metabolism • Plays a role in brain development • Builds immunity • Fights fatigue Total body iron averages a little less than 4 grams in men and a little more than 2 grams in women. Iron Absorption When it comes to iron absorption intestinal cells act as gatekeepers. People short on iron soak more of it. Depending on need, iron absorption can vary from less than 1 percent to greater than 50 percent. Once intestinal cells admit iron, they can use it immediately, release it in

Calcium

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in our bodies. It is important to have adequate calcium throughout life, so bones and teeth can remain strong into old age. Over 99 percent of our body’ calcium is found in bones and teeth, making them hard and strong. Although less than 1 percent of body calcium is in blood and soft tissue, that tiny amount has vitally important roles in muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, blood clotting, and cell metabolism. Although we usually achieve our peak bone mass at around 30, we can build bone mass later too with walking and weight bearing exercises. To prevent even minor dips in calcium our body will demineralize bone. During every life stage,

Minerals

We need minerals for the proper composition of body fluids, the formation of blood and bone, the maintenance of healthy nerve function, and regulation of muscle tone, including cardiovascular system. Nutritionally, minerals belong to two groups: macro minerals and trace minerals. Body needs trace minerals in minute amounts and macro minerals in larger quantities. Macro minerals are electrolytes for they help regulate cellular water balance. Macro minerals: Most people have calcium deficient diets. Good calcium nutrition through out life is essential for achieving peak bone mass and preventing deficiency-related bone loss. Magnesium controls bio-chemical reactions in body and is crucial
