What Are Antioxidants And Why You Should Eat Them

Antioxidants are substances that inhibits oxidation, especially ones used to counteract the deterioration of stored food products or removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents in a living organism.

Antioxidants help counter oxidative stress, and may boost your immune system and decrease your risk of infection. The best source of antioxidant vitamins and minerals is a wholesome, colorful, varied diet that includes plenty of fresh (preferably organic) fruits, vegetables and nuts.

Antioxidant sources, like antioxidant foods, herbs, spices and teas, reduce the effects of free radicals, also called oxidative damage/stress, which plays a major role in disease formation. The leading health problems facing us today — including conditions like heart disease, cancer and dementia — have been linked to increased levels of oxidative damage and inflammation.

The following is a list of the top-ranked food sources of antioxidants based on serving size. Add them to your grocery list!

  1. Blackberries
  2. Walnuts
  3. Strawberries
  4. Artichokes (prepared)
  5. Cranberries
  6.  Coffee
  7. Raspberries
  8. Pecans

Supplements for Diabetics

Many people who have  diabetes use complementary and alternative medications to lower blood glucose, researchers indicate that this is an ‘emerging trend.’ A number of complementary and alternative medications can potentially lower blood sugar, and many patients look at these substances as more natural than synthetic drugs.

Many  vitamins have antioxidant potential that may complement diabetic medications. The Journal Diabetology & Metabolic Syndrome has published a systematic review and meta-analysis of vitamins that have antioxidant potential and their use among patients who have type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The findings discuss a total of 12 studies that looked at antioxidant outcomes. The vitamins that were studied included vitamins B, C, D and E.

Vitamin E was related to significant reduction of blood glucose and glycated hemoglobin compared to placebo. The researchers suggest that vitamin E may reduce damage incurred from free radicals on structural and functional components of cells and vessel walls.

Vitamins C and E and glutathione, all of which are nonenzymatic antioxidants, seem to be able to interrupt free radical chain reactions. There is intense interest in administering these vitamins in combination. Some evidence indicates that long-term use of dietary supplements, including multivitamin or mineral complexes may improve C-reactive protein, HDL cholesterol, serum homocysteine, blood pressure, and incidence of diabetes.

Doses ranged from 500 to 3000 mg/day for vitamin C; from 400 to 1600 IU/day for vitamin E; and from 500 to 200,000 IU/day for vitamin D. Vitamin supplementation with vitamins E and C may help reduce diabetes complications and enhance antioxidant capacity.

Google Classroom For Healthcoaching

Google is a tool that can be used for practically everything. It has been used widely for education and business.

Google is a major player in technology that is transforming teaching and learning in schools. With their suite of devices, apps, and resources, they have magically brought the power of technology into classroom.

Since Google allowed private accounts to open Classroom, people have taken advantage of the features that are offered which they can use for themselves.

Google Classroom is a great resource not only for teachers, but health coaches, nutritionists, dieticians, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, or anybody looking for a platform to communicate with a group.

With Google Classroom, the facilitator/teacher can create content or courses to distribute, get feedback and have everything in one place at no cost. This gives instant feedback and easy to use even if one has no technology expertise. Another generally overlooked feature of Google Classroom is collecting emails. Yes, you can collect emails inviting people to your free or paid courses.

As a nurse and a health coach, I have used Classroom to communicate with my groups and distribute my courses.

Classroom can be set up in minutes. The group can work form anywhere, anytime and on any device. Classroom integrates with other Google tools and several Apps to facilitate interaction.

As the facilitator, you can provide instant feedback and track your group’s performance.

I have created an introductory course with a focus on health coaches. In this course, you will walk away with the understanding of how to be able to use this amazing tool to distribute your courses. Classroom helps you communicate better with your group.

5 Reasons Blueberries Are A Superfood

  1. Provide antioxidants.    Antioxidants are compounds that fight harmful free radicals and provide a variety of health benefits.  They prevent cell damage and  also protect against several types of chronic disease, including cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Anthocyanins, the pigments that make blueberries blue, are potent antioxidants: A half-cup of blueberries provides the antioxidant power of five servings of peas, carrots, apples, squash or broccoli.
  2. Are a healthy, low-glycemic-index carbohydrate, an especially good choice for those in need of better blood sugar control.
  3. Are a source of  Vitamin C, important for supporting your immune system.
  4. Help meet your daily fiber needs with two grams per half-cup serving of blueberries.
  5. May offer various other health benefits ranging from preventing cancer and defending against urinary tract infections, to protecting the brain from stroke damage and reducing heart disease risks. It is also thought to have the ability to enhance brain health. There have been many studies suggesting that eating blueberries could improve memory and cognition.

Look for organic blueberries, and toss some in a salad, eat as a snack or throw in a parfait with plain yogurt and walnuts. If fresh, organic blueberries are cost prohibitive, substitute with organic frozen or dried products – all three forms provide health-protective benefits. Keep in mind that dried blueberries are a concentrated source of sugar or may have added sweeteners, so enjoy them in moderation. Frozen organic blueberries are a great replacement for ice in making a frosty breakfast smoothie with unsweetened nut milk and a handful of raw almonds.

What Is Tapping and Does It Really Work?

Tapping, most commonly known as EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a type of energy psychology that combines eastern medicine and modern psychology.

It is extremely effective with both physical issues (back pain, headaches, etc) and emotional issues. Issues range from stress, anxiety, phobias, addiction, weight control, and limiting beliefs.

While the human body possesses a natural healing potential, stress and emotional problems can stand in the way, which is where EFT comes in. People who experience benefits from practicing tapping techniques find that it helps clear their mind, focus their attention on the present moment does, and improve their attitude so they have a better chance of overcoming challenges they may face.

Nutrition For Healthy Hair

Whole foods rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc and biotin may help promote a healthy scalp and hair. Add these foods to your grocery cart – think of them as ingredients in a healthy hair recipe!

 

  1. Dark leafy greens. Kale, Swiss chard, spinach and other dark leafy greens are good sources of vitamins A and C, which the body needs to produce the oily substance sebum, a natural conditioner for your hair.
  2. Salmon. Omega-3 fatty acids, of which wild-caught salmon is a top source, are important to a healthy scalp. Salmon (always look for wild Alaskan or sockeye salmon) is also a good source of protein. If you don’t like the taste of fish, try a high-quality fish oil supplement.
  3. Beans and legumes.  They are a good source of protein which helps promote hair growth, as well as iron, biotin and zinc. (Biotin deficiencies can occasionally result in brittle hair.) Another good source of zinc is raw pumpkin seeds or pepitas. Add a small handful per day like you would use nuts.
  4. Nuts. Specific varieties of nuts contain vitamins and minerals that can help promote the health of your scalp. Brazil nuts are a good source of selenium (limit yourself to no more than two Brazil nuts per day). Walnuts provide the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, which may help condition your hair, as well as zinc, which can minimize hair shedding. Cashews, almonds and pecans are other hair-healthy choices. Aim for raw varieties as often as you can, or lightly toast it yourself if an added crunch is preferred.
  5. Eggs. A good source of protein, which helps prevent dry, weak and brittle hair. Choose organic, omega-3 fortified eggs from cage-free hens.

Zinc has always been regarded as one of the main nutrients in the support of healthy hair and skin. Get your highly bioavailable supply here
