Sugar Sugar How You Taste So Fine?

You want taste, you want to enjoy your food, however it all comes with a cost!

We underestimate how much sugar is in our food, some foods such as yogurt, oatmeal and other `healthy`foods so we think.

What is advertised as *healthy* is not as healthy as it seems.
Healthy foods have added sugars which are never perceived, such as tomato soup.

Obesity rates are rising and spreading!

Inexpensive, good tasting supersized foods should be a concern, as obese people have a higher risk for chronic diseases such as Diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, cancer and more.

‘’More than 100 million people are diabetic or pre-diabetic in North America.’’

Fructose additive in sugar is a large problem for health.

Sugar can make existing tumours grow within the body, therefore causing a higher risk of cancer.

How much sugar should we eat per day
Women: 6 tsps a day
Men: 9 tsp. a day

These are all random facts, BUT!

Please Watch this video and TAKE ALL THE TIME, do not rush into it or avoid it, it is ALL important for Warning us.

This will change your life!

A Banana A day Keeps The Doctor Further Away!

Many of us have conflicting thoughts and misconceptions about bananas.

Here is the official truth and you be the judge:

A Banana contain three natural sugars namely sucrose, fructose and glucose and filled with fiber.

I also helps with many illnesses such as:

Depression: Bananas contain tryptophan which is a protein that is converted into serotonin when injected in the body.  Serotonin is the hormone that makes you feel good.

PMS: When in pain ladies don’t take pills eat a banana, bananas contain vitamin B6 which helps regulate blood sugar Kevel which which can affect your mood otherwise.

Anemia: Bananas contain high iron levels therefore increases the production of hemoglobin in the blood.

Brain Strength: Before an exam eat a banana as it boosts the brain function.

Blood Pressure: Bananas are high in potassium and low in salt which helps reduce risk of unbalanced blood pressure and strokes.

Constipation: Fiber levels are high which helps your diet and your bowel function, as opposed to what many believe about bananas.

Hangovers: Bananas with honey and milk help heal the system by calming the stomach, depleting sugar levels and hydrating the body.

Heartburn: Bananas contain a natural antacid to sooth heartburn.

Ulcers: Bananas neutralize over acidity and reduces the irritation into the stomach through its soft texture.

Morning sickness: Bananas keep blood levels up and therefore keeps you from feeling sick in the stomach.

Nerves: High B vitamins in the banana helps calm your nerves.

Mosquito bites: When bitten by a mosquito try rubbing a banana skin on top of the bite and it will reduce swelling and irritation. (I personally have not tried it, but as the season comes again I will definitely test this one)

Temperature balance: Apparently bananas lower the physical and the emotional temperature of an expectant mother so eating a banana a day helps your baby to be born on a cool temperature.

Pretty neat I find. So much new information and new remedies.

So when you plan a nutritional day, don’t just focus on eating an apple a day but a banana as it has much more benefits than an apple.

The Eye: Mirror to the Brain

New studies are showing that Alzheimer’s disease could very well be diagnosed as simple as looking into the eye.

Mice studies have found that those with Alzheimer`s disease also have loss of thickness in a layer in the eye cells.

”As the retina is a direct extension of the brain, they say the loss of retinal neurons could be related to the loss of brain cells in Alzheimer’s.” (BBC News)

Imagine that one day, opticians just may be able to diagnose this disease.

Does that mean that new treatment can be found as we prediagnose Alzheimer`s disease?

Further studies is required on this topic, but keep in consideration when looking at yourself in the mirror!
