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.

7 Amazing benefits of chlorella

Chlorella, a freshwater unicellular green algae, is one of the most researched algae in the world. They often refer to it as the almost perfect food, since research that has been done over the years has identified that it has a great number of amazing health benefits. However, it is well known for its ability to detoxify your body, binding toxins and expelling them from your system.

Impressive Range of Benefits for the Health of Chlorella
As you will see, chlorella seems to fill the description of a “nutrient wonder” because it plays much more than a single function. Here are some examples of the health benefits associated with this green algae:

It repairs the nervous tissues

Increase the energy level

Strengthens the immune system

Normalizes blood sugar

Improve your digestion

Normalizes blood pressure

Promotes pH levels in the intestine, which in turn helps the “good” bacteria grow

Remove potentially toxic metals from the body

Improves the ability to focus and attention

Eliminates bad breath

Chlorella can also be beneficial for vegetarians and vegans seeking protein and vitamin B from a source other than animal. About 60 percent of the algae is protein and because it contains all the essential amino acids your body needs, it is considered a “complete protein.”

Chlorella is rich in:

GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid)
Folate
B12 vitamin
Iron
7 Diseases That Chlorella Could Help Prevent or Treat
As I mentioned earlier, chlorella is and has been investigated for a series of benefits to treat diseases. Here is a list of six problems and diseases in which chorella could be particularly beneficial.

Insulin resistance – Earlier this year, researchers discovered that chlorella has the ability to improve insulin sensitivity

As I have said on numerous occasions, excessive consumption of fructose is the number one cause of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. In this study in animals, the rats, after being fed with food rich in fructose for four weeks, they were given chlorella three times a day for five days, as a result their elevated glucose-insulin values ​​dropped and normalized.

The authors concluded that: “The oral administration of chlorella has the ability to improve insulin sensitivity, and this can be used as an adjuvant therapy for patients with insulin resistance.”
Detoxification It is particularly useful when used together with an infrared sauna and is taken 2 hours before entering the sauna. This way the chlorella will be in your gut ready to join the toxins that are released when you are in the sauna. It will bind irreversibly to the toxins and eliminate them safely when you have your bowel movement.
Diabetes – Additional evidence supporting the theory that chlorella can improve insulin sensitivity can be found in the previous study. Here, it was discovered that algae improves insulin sensitivity and glucose uptake in the liver of rats with type 1 diabetes. The authors suggest that chlorella hypoglycemic effects could be due to the absorption of glucose in the liver and in the soleus muscles.

Another mechanism could be related to the decrease in levels of non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA), since insulin sensitivity is often inhibited by high non-esterified fatty acids in type 1 diabetes.
Hypertension – The results of a double-blind placebo-controlled study published two years ago suggest that chlorella could significantly lower high blood pressure as well as borderline hypertension. The authors proposed that this could be a beneficial food supplement to prevent hypertension, without apparent adverse side effects.
Anemia, proteinuria and edema in pregnant women – Hypertension and anemia are common during pregnancy and are also potentially dangerous. One of the main causes of these diseases is the nutritional status of women. A study published last year found that chlorella could help improve both diseases in pregnant women, this is probably because chlorella has high levels of folate, vitamin B12 and iron.

The participants took six grams of chlorella a day, starting around week 12 or 18 of pregnancy, until the day of delivery. The group that used chlorella had significantly lower rates of anemia compared to the control group. There were also fewer cases of proteinuria and edema; two symptoms related to hypertension induced by pregnancy.

Also in this case, the authors concluded that: “The chlorella supplement could serve as a natural source of folate, vitamin B12 and iron for pregnant women.”
Fibromyalgia – Although the individual results were varied, it might be worth considering the use of chlorella if you suffer from fibromyalgia. A study published in 2002, tested the effectiveness of two commercial products available based on chlorella in patients who were diagnosed with fibromyalgia and the overall results showed a decrease of 22 percent in the intensity of pain.

However, while seven of the patients reported an improvement in the symptoms of fibromyalgia, six others did not report an effect at all and five more claimed that their symptoms had worsened during the test … So keep this in mind if you decide try it While it may help some, for others it may not work at all.

Liver Cancer – A study published in 2009 found that chlorella triggers cell death (apoptosis) in cancer cells in the liver of rats, suggesting that it could be useful in preventing liver cancer. The authors concluded that: “Our study shows that chlorella definitely has chemopreventive effects by inducing apoptosis by decreasing Bcl-2 expression and increasing caspase-8 in rats with induced hepatocarcinogenesis.”
For more information about the results of the studies, visit the page of Green Med Info that talks about Chlorella and in which they list more than 40 diseases that could obtain some type of benefit from this algae.

Chlorella – A Powerful Detoxification Agent
The toxicity of heavy metals, like chemical toxicity, have become one of the most worrisome health damages of our days and this is where chlorella can be extremely useful. Its ability to bind to heavy metal toxins, allowing them to be safely eliminated from the body, has been well established. It is particularly important for the elimination of systemic mercury, since most of the mercury is eliminated through faeces.

Once the load of mercury falls from the intestines, the mercury from other tissues of the body can move to the intestine more easily, then the chlorella will take care of removing it from there.

You can also add coriander, since it works as a synergistic detoxification aid along with chlorella. This combination is particularly useful when you consume seafood, since most of them are contaminated with heavy metals and chemicals. Ideally, you should take it with food so that chlorella can bind directly to the toxins while they are in the intestine, before your body absorbs them.

In order to optimize the detoxification of heavy metals, you will want to take at least four grams of chlorella a day, last a whole year.

Keep in mind that side effects may occur. As your body begins to detoxify, you may begin to experience mild nausea and / or mild diarrhea. If these symptoms become very annoying, what you should do is reduce the initial dose and increase it little by little. As soon as your body cleanses of toxins, these side effects should disappear.

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.

Fruits against the symptoms of allergies 

Many people who suffer from allergies, simply and simply hear about hay fever and suffer similar symptoms claim that they also suffer from hay fever, ignoring that there are many allergens that produce the same symptoms, so it is best to consult to an allergist who will help you find out exactly what caused your allergy. It may not be a pollen allergy, it could be due to mites or even cigarette smoke.

The fight against allergens
Fighting against allergens is extremely difficult, but that’s it or letting yourself be overcome by all the symptoms of allergies.

Symptoms of allergies are induced by an abnormal tissue response when exposed to a selected antigen, also considered as allergens. If all of the body’s tissues react to a selected antigen, the allergic response becomes active and begins to show results throughout the body. Allergic reactions can occur in almost any part of the body. There is a wide variety of circumstances and substances of how allergic reactions can be induced, understanding the mechanism that makes them jump can help to select the remedy for allergy symptoms. Some of which consist of dust, animal hair, cosmetics, serums, medications, heat, sunlight, and a variety of foods. The frequent meals that allergic reactions offer are milk, eggs, seafood, oranges, strawberries, tomatoes and chocolates.
Most of the time, allergy symptoms can not be prevented from causing havoc, but there are numerous treatments that can be applied to treat such symptoms. Fruit consumption may be the fastest way to treat symptoms of generalized allergy.
The signs of allergy can offer various signs and symptoms based on a particular person and their tolerance toward it. Generalized allergic signs such as dizziness, headaches, nervousness, depression, irritability, hay fever, conjunctivitis, diarrhea, asthma, and swelling of the eyes. Obtaining your own first aid kit with anti-allergy properties is a good idea for men and women who are susceptible to allergic reactions. This kit should include the regulatory treatments for allergies and so react quickly to an eventuality of this type.

The lime is an excellent remedy for allergy symptoms that can be obtained quickly and with satisfactory results, eliminates harmful toxins from the organism, as well as acting as an anti-allergic agent. Half of a lime squeezed and mixed with a glass of Water and honey is a mixture that in some people has given good results to treat some types of allergies.

However, if a certain type of allergy persists, after trying these popular remedies, it is best to consult your general practitioner

The truth about breakfast Cereals

Cereals are an extraordinary and balanced food, ideal not only for breakfast, but also for lunch or dinner. But when we talk about cereals, we talk about those that come out of the earth and that do not look anything like that infamous thing that appears in a colorful box in the supermarket

We explain some convincing reasons to avoid box cereals altogether, be they “special I do not know what” or “special light I do not know how many”. We also explain how to make a real healthy breakfast with real cereals.

Common sense
Before entering fully into the matter, we only expose an idea that we consider to be of great common sense. Cereals are an extraordinary food but … Can we really call these colored balls cereals to feed our sons and daughters? How is that like a grain of rice? Where does the color come from? How is the taste of wheat similar to those brown cereal sticks with “low fat” chocolate?

What do the box cereals contain?
Depending on the type and brand, cash cereals usually contain:
Sugar: Especially box cereals for boys and girls and “normal”, that is, those that are not “special I do not know what” or “light” or “low in sugar” (these contain even worse things). The first thing we have to be clear is that the most abundant ingredient in many of them is, in addition to gluten, huge amounts of refined sugar.
Gluten: All box cereals made from wheat, oats, rye or barley contain gluten. We recommend you read our article “Wheat, poison in the diet” to know the many damages of gluten (not only in people with celiac disease but in the whole world) according to the interesting currents of active cellular nutrition (with which we totally agree) .
Corn: Almost all the corn produced in the world is transgenic (see our transgenic report) and our enzymes have serious problems to metabolize genetically altered structures. It is not that they do not know, they do what they can, generating serious disturbances in the organism (we recommend that you read the fabulous book “the truth about transgenics” by the French minister Corine Lepage … it will make your hair stand on end.
Synthetic Sweeteners: In our opinion (and increasingly that of more independent professionals from large multinationals), synthetic sweeteners are some of the most dangerous additives that exist, especially aspartame, suspected of producing rare types of brain cancer (see our report about aspartame and this list of safe and dangerous additives.
Nothing: Cash cereals contain, basically, a lot of nothing. That is, a completely processed product with a minimum amount of essential nutrients and additives. That is why, many times, they are forced to introduce added vitamins and minerals, which is completely absurd, since natural cereals contain vitamins and minerals. Look at the nonsense: they refine them, they take away everything good, and then they add it artificially … Are we crazy? Just to have an appetizing appearance and produce desire to eat a lot, because its flavor is irresistible thanks to certain additives.
It is true that, depending on the brands, the box cereals may contain more fiber (which is healthy), and may be more or less processed and therefore contain more or less nutrients, almost always very inadequate, and especially accompanied by:

Sugar + gluten + additives
Sugar + transgenics + additives
Synthetic sweeteners + gluten or transgenics + additives
What do real cereals contain?
The real cereals (not those that come in box) contain a series of essential and very healthy nutrients that, combined with other foods that we will see right away, provide a complete ration of essential nutrients to start the day with energy and health:

Proteins: Cereals contain a certain amount of proteins, although they do not contain all the essential amino acids, so it is important to add other foods that contain them in order to form a protein of high biological value. The best and healthiest to make this sum are the seeds and nuts.
Carbohydrates and fiber: The cereals contain carbohydrates of slow absorption (that is to say, of the good ones, those that provide energy and do not get fat) and a lot of fiber (essential to keep healthy the intestinal flora).
Fats: Hardly contain fats, although the few they contain are not saturated. Healthy fats that are necessary (essential fatty acids from the omega family) are also obtained from seeds and nuts.
Vitamins, minerals and other essential elements: Cereals, naturally, contain in their composition certain vitamins, minerals and other elements that contribute to the efficiency of our metabolism and general physiology. It is true that cereals do not contain enough of these elements. To provide enough vitamins and minerals, there is no better source than, at another time of the day, take plenty of vegetables, vegetables and greens (more vegetable than fruit, to avoid sugar), because they are the natural elements that more vitamins and minerals they contain.
Organic box cereals
In the stores of ecological products we also find cereals of box, or cereals in bags, but also with them we must be careful.

Likewise, although they are not transgenic, they contain gluten and often also large amounts of sugar.

If you are going to buy box cereals in a super organic, make sure they have little sugar (it would be better if they had stevia sweetener, since it is the healthiest natural sweetener of all).

Try not also to choose wheat, barley, or rye. Oatmeal is somewhat healthier, since it has many nutritional properties, but unfortunately it also has gluten (although less than the others mentioned above). If you are going to consume oats, better in moderation, from time to time.

The best cereals
First of all, we recommend that, among all the cereals, you choose rice in the first place. Rice is the cereal most consumed by all civilizations ; is the cereal that is recommended when we are sick in the stomach (for something will be) … Why not consume it even if we are not sick or ill?

Rice is the cereal that has been least genetically transformed and, therefore, is the one that best assimilate our enzymes (essential for health in general). It does not carry gluten and is the most digestive (see our article on the importance of consuming rice.

Other cereals that are also very healthy due to their characteristics (they do not have gluten) are buckwheat (which is not wheat, even if it is called that), millet and quinoa.
