Healthy Tips

The most rewarding part of writing LifeStyle Tips is for your life to change. What's even more exciting is for you to know that it is never too late to change your lifestyle.My main prospective is that eating a variety of organic fruits and vegetables will balance the body's acid/alkaline levels to obtain maximum health. "Avoid packaged foods with more than five ingredients…and be sure you get enough B vitamins!" (The consumer Reports OnHealth) The best thing we can do is to saturate our bodies with the right nutrients which is the very foundation of optimal health.Allow good nutritional care along with your health care provider; give the body what is needed to keep it in the best possible health. You will find medical studies and helpful tips to perk up your health.Here I want to share some tip might be used to us.

Diabetic Drug Metformin Depletes Vitamin B12
Many physicians and Metformin patients are unaware that Metformin depletes the body of vitamin B12. However, this side effect can be reversed by taking additional supplements of B12 and calcium. Metformin interferes with calcium metabolism which affects the absorption of B12. Ask the Pharmacist, August 2007 Life Extension pg 85.

Diabetics and Sugar
Diabetics should avoid sugar; but how much? According to HealthCastle.com, on a 2000 calorie intake a day, a diabetic should consume no more than 50g (10 teaspoons) of sugar per day. Remember these sugars are fructose, dextrose, lactose, glucose, sucrose and maltose. More weight should be given to the amount of sugar used, than the type of sugar used.

Natural Sweetener
Stevia a natural sweetener is three hundred times sweeter than regular sugar. It can be used for cooking and baking and it is an excellent alternative to synthetic sweeteners. Stevia is an herb that grows in South America. Stevia was use by the natives in Paraguay for centuries and by Japan since 1970 and available in the United States in 1990.

Other Sweetener
White and brown sugar, honey, and corn syrup brakes down quietly in the bloodstream, causing cravings, constant hunger and your blood sugar to surge.

Diet Verses Regular
According to Boston University, there is no difference between a diet drink and a regular drink. They are both linked to the same health problems. The results of the study were published online July 23, 2007, Circulation Journal website. More than 1 soda per day may cause diabetes or cardiovascular disease (HealthDay News).

More Is Not Better
When taking a supplement you may think, because it is a vitamin to improve your health you may take as many as you like. Not true, there is a Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL). An intake above this level puts you at risk. Instead of assisting the body it can become harmful. Be sure to read the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA). Take vitamins for a specific medical condition, you will more than likely need to take more than the recommended amount. Do not take without medical supervision. (ConsumerLab.com)

Healthy Heart
Keep your heart healthy with fish and fish oil, whole grains, onions, and spinach. Heart disease is the number one killer among men and women in the United States. Nubella Newsletter July 18, 2007.

So enjoy your life without any disease while still enjoying your favourite meals.BUT...remember, take the right quantity if you want to keep health and look young!
