My Optimal Health Resource
Humans have relied on natural extracts and powerful nutrients to
prevent disease and maintain health for countless generations.
The typical diet consists mostly of
foods that have been heavily processed so that most of the vitamins
and minerals we need to sustain optimal health have been eliminated.
Estimates are that only 1 in 20 people consumes the minimum daily
recommendation of 5 servings of vegetables and fruits.
individuals are therefore deficient in a wide array of
phytonutrients supplied by fresh produce that are essential for
You can improve your health by adding these
natural nutrients to your diet or supplemental arsenal.
to Protect the Brain and Liver
Curcumin is the active component of the Indian spice turmeric that
gives curry its deep yellow color.
This potent antiviral is known to
provide critical protection to the brain as it can easily cross the
blood-brain barrier. Researchers have shown that the spice extract
can effectively inhibit the formation of brain plaque that is
associated with Alzheimer`s disease and other neurological disorders
such as Parkinson`s.
New research published in the journal Endocrinology confirms how curcumin can help prevent the accumulation of fat in the liver.
Fatty liver disease is a potentially fatal affliction that worsens
with excess body weight and obesity. The liver is our primary organ
responsible for filtering toxins from the blood as well as hundreds
of other important metabolic functions within our body.
nutrient that can help keep fat from clogging the normal activity of
our liver is critical to our health.
Dramatically Lowers Risk from Many Cancer Lines
Sulfur is the active compound that makes
garlic difficult for many
to eat raw and also contributes to its long list of health benefits.
Our body uses the breakdown of sulfur to power a process known as
methylation. Through this chain of chemical reactions our body is
able to perform many critical functions that promote healthy immune
response and clear waste products from our cells.
The result of a study published in the American Journal of Clinical
Nutrition demonstrates that a diet including garlic (and onions) was
inversely related to the risk of
many forms of cancer.
Researchers believe that an
improved immune response is behind the cancer fighting ability
associated with garlic.
Green Tea in
the Fight Against Obesity and Heart Disease
green tea (EGCG) have been known for their ability
to fight diseases ranging from cancer to dementia and heart disease.
Extensive research has shown that
EGCG can effectively inhibit the
blood supply required for the development and proliferation of
cancer cells. Risk for developing deadly lung cancer was reduced by
66% in participants taking a concentrated form of green tea extract.
Green tea is also a powerful tool in the fight against heart
disease. Information published in the Journal of the American
College of Nutrition explains how EGCG increases the oxidation of
fat by boosting metabolism. This action assists in weight loss by
increasing base metabolic rate. Green tea also lowers the risk of
coronary artery disease by limiting oxidized LDL cholesterol that
causes arterial plaque.
antiviral nutrients are vital to our health.
interested in lowering their risk of cancer, heart disease, dementia
and liver dysfunction should be certain to include these powerful
compounds through diet or supplementation.
