5 vital reasons to become a vegetarian


In the vegetarian diet is excluded, as the name says, any product of animal origin and that implies his death. Instead we can eat milk and dairy products, eggs and honey. They are products of animal origin but they have not meant their death to obtain them.

Of course, the vegetarian person does not just stay in that aspect. It will also seek, as far as possible, that these foods are produced in a respectful way (for example, eggs of free chickens and that they eat healthy food) with them and with the environment. That the vegetables are organic and, if possible, of small farmers in nearby areas will be another priority.

Within the vegetarian “family” we will find people who do not take eggs or milk or honey. They are Vegans and do not take anything that comes directly or indirectly from any animal.

Reasons to be a vegetarian

1- Less chronic diseases

Vegetarian diet is lower in fat and also more polyunsaturated. That implies less cholesterol and less hypertension. To eat more vegetables and fruits can help to avoid some types of cancer since it is a diet more antioxidant and that favors the elimination of toxins. When we learn to eat better we hardly need medication, aspirins, antacids and other “everyday” medicines tend to disappear from our daily lives.

2-Less malnutrition and constipation

It is very curious that except Vegans (who must supplement their diet with B12) a balanced vegetarian diet is usually richer in nutrients than normal (we all tend to always eat the same and basically refined foods).
Greater knowledge about nutrition. Vegetarians usually care a lot about food and take care that nothing is missing. They usually take supplements of algae, pollen, royal jelly, brewer’s yeast, wheat germ, flax seed, sesame, etc. The fact of eating more vegetables, more fruit, less meat and more whole foods is a key aspect.


3- Vegetarian diet is Cheaper and improve life quality

 Basing your diet on vegetables, legumes, fruits and vegetable proteins is cheaper than eating meat, prepared foods, cola type drinks, pizzas, snacks, etc. Vegetarians can say that, in general, they are very involved in improving their quality of life and try to find ways to reduce their stress, improve their diet, enjoy nature more, etc.


4- Avoid animal suffering.

Behind this way of eating there is a whole philosophy of life. The planet is understood as the home of all living beings. Avoiding, if possible, your suffering is very important. We can feed on them without killing them (dairy, eggs, honey, etc.).


5-Environmental sustainability

With the food that an animal needs (or the necessary land to raise its food) we can feed 10 times more people. Every year more forests and part of the forest disappear so that animals can graze. In addition, its intensive breeding generates highly polluting residues and methane.

Conclusion
With this article we only want to show that the reasons for being a vegetarian are not only to follow a nutritional fashion but the benefits are many and diverse. Of course there are many people who are not vegetarian and that their diet is balanced and healthy, and that they seek to improve their quality of life.

Amazing benefits of Pomegranates

Pomegranate is a fruit full of antioxidants and found that the seeds have a number of health benefits, from lowering cholesterol to fight against arthritis.

 

“Pomegranates are known for their high polyphenol content,” said Marisa Moore of the Academy of Nutrition and Diet. In addition, he assured that the fruit offers a good source of potassium and vitamin C. Here we will give you more benefits of this delicious fruit:

 

The red pomegranate stimulates your immune system
Scientists recommend drinking pomegranate juice because it effectively concentrates the beneficial nutrients in pomegranate seeds. “The antioxidant activity of pomegranate juice can be three times higher than that of green tea and red wine,” explained Moore of the University of California.

Pomegranates contain three types of antioxidants: tannins (which have made healthy red wine famous), anthocyanins and ellagic acid. Antioxidants are important to keep cells in our bodies healthy and able to fight against viruses, decreasing inflammation and preventing organ damage.
 

Keep blood pressure low
Think of them as a relief from stress in edible form. Besides we already know that we are taking advantage of the power of their antioxidants, pomegranates have been shown to improve systolic blood pressure. According to a study conducted at the Research Lipid Research Laboratory in the Medical Sciences in Israel, the grenades ensure that the arteries are free of plaque.

Goodbye cholesterol!
Another study by the Lipid Research Laboratory analyzed many effects of pomegranates on cardiovascular health, which led to a decrease in cholesterol levels. Once again, we have antioxidant polyphenols to thank for this.

Fight inflammation
Antioxidants also work wonders on inflammation throughout the body, even in the most painful cases of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Studies have shown that pomegranate extract not only reduces inflammation, but also helps relieve pain and even fights cartilage degradation.

They inhibit cancer
Studies show that pomegranate juice inhibits the growth of cancer cells and even gives those cells an extra push to keep going and die (a process called apoptosis). A study from the University of Southern Taiwan Science and Technology, showed that pomegranate juice prevented the proliferation of a particular prostate cancer cell, while a previous study from the University of Florida Atlantic found similar results with respect to the breast cancer cells.

Amazing things Epsom salt can do to your body

Epsom salts are used by many people every day for dozens of diseases and problems. In this post, I will explore ten huge benefits of using Epsom salts.
Epsom salts have been used for hundreds of years, come from Epsom in the southeast of England. Epsom salts are composed of magnesium and sulfates that can have some amazing benefits if used correctly.

It may be a little known fact that the magnesium sulfate found in Epsom salt is absorbed through your skin!

Time to relax

When we feel stressed, magnesium levels in the body are depleted. Epsom salts help replenish magnesium by taking a hot bath by immersing ourselves in them. Magnesium in salts helps the body produce high levels of serotonin, which is the chemical in antidepressants. The above properties of Epsom salts help the body to function properly, and can also help with concentration levels.

Increase Energy

We have already seen that Epsom salts can help us to relax and rest, therefore, you may be surprised to discover that salts also help produce adenosine triphosphate, which is a natural chemical in the body that increases energy.
Alleviate the pain

Epsom salts have some of the same medical properties as anti-inflammatory, which can help with cramping problems and relieves the body’s natural pain.

Stops Smell

There is also a natural neutralizer in Epsom salts that helps them (when mixed with water) to prevent foot odor.

Remove Dead Skin

When mixed with either olive oil or bath oils, Epsom salts can help remove areas of accumulated dead skin. Never leave the salts on the skin for a long time, once you have left the bathroom make sure to rinse the salts.
Good with Shampoo
If you have oily hair, adding the right amount of salts can help with the treatment. It can also help to add thickness to fine hair with Epsom salts.
Stops potential blood clots

Due to its relaxation properties, it is believed that Epsom salts can help in the prevention of blood clots because blood pressure drops naturally.

Stops constipation

The salts contribute to increase the water in the intestines that can help with problems of constipation, however, since you have to take the salts for this to be effective, you should make sure that you consult with a specialist before using the salts.

Vegetal Nutricion

Not only Epsom salts help the human body, but it can also help with the growth and maturity of plants. The natural properties of magnesium salts help with the development of chlorophyll, and the sulfur properties of the salts help the plant absorb healthier elements of the food.

As you can see in the previous points, Epsom salts can help many of the daily problems. At this current time in the western world, tablets are usually a quick solution, when the reality is that the solution may be in a product that has existed for hundreds of years. With Epsom salts on the side or as a substitute for medication, you can make sure that your problems can be eradicated quickly and effectively.

Fibromyalgia and Coffee Do They Have Any Relation?

 

If you have chronic pain, stiffness, acidity, insomnia, nervous disorders or digestive problems, you should read this article.

We live in the times when the use of coffee has become a habit in more than 80% of the world of people.

Coffee is one of the most commercialized drinks in the world and most people take it without knowing its consequences for health and especially for people with Fibromyalgia.

Next, I want to explain how coffee affects your health in an undesirable way.

Lately the coffee that is used in most countries, is transgenic.

A transgenic product (genetically modified) is a tremendously toxic product for your cellulars, because it changes your genetics and this is related to all the chronic imbalances.

A part coffee is a product that produces an excess of acidity in your body (not only speak of the stomach). With coffee your PH becomes acid and your defenses use the minerals of your bones to balance this acidity (minerals are alkaline).

Because of this theft of minerals from your bones, there is a deficiency of minerals in both bones and joints and this, of course, you feel pain and stiffness.

Besides, the acidity generated by coffee generates inflammation and where there is pain, there is inflammation and where there is inflammation, there is pain.

Coffee blocks some digestive enzymes and makes digestion more difficult.
When digestion becomes incomplete, putrefaction and fermentation occurs in your intestine and as a result your intestine becomes more prone to infections by fungi, parasites and bacteria.

Coffee for caffeine excites your nervous system, but without giving you any valuable nutrients in return. That is as if when you have instead of eating something, you take a pill that takes away your appetite.

Coffe depletes your reserves of vital nutrients and your organism and the nervous system are altered chronically.

Coffee for caffeine and the deficiency of nutrients that causes, creates nervous imbalance that affects your sleep.

The body is renewed and repaired while we sleep. According to the scientists, an insufficient sleep causes the body not to repair itself, does not detoxify and thus accelerates cellular aging and the defenses go down.

Now surely you think you could have decaffeinated coffee. Well let me tell you that decaffeinated coffee is a product that undergoes a chemical alteration process that in the long run can be worse than normal coffee.

The decaffeinated coffee is a substance even more altered and foreign to the body and its harmful effects we will know in a few years.

If you have symptoms of Fibromyalgia, you should already opt for a much healthier way of life and stay away from all the substances not compatible with your body.

The gift of health is something we have to take care of and pamper, when you stop doing it, you approach the disease.
