Eat Healthy Be Nutrition Wealthy

dr-madhukar-1

Nutrition  is the supply of materials – food – required by organisms and cells to stay alive. In science and human medicine, nutrition is the science or practice of consuming and utilizing foods.

A good balanced diet is needed to get the right amount of each nutrient in your body.To stay healthy our bodies need good quality food with nutrients in them. Without these 5 nutrients i.e. carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals ;our bodies would not survive.

In a perfect world, we’d get all of our nutrition from food, and it would satisfy each of our individual daily requirements. Ideally, it would be delicious, fresh and organically grown. It’d be budget friendly and waiting for us — nice and hot on the table when we arrived home.

Not surprisingly, this isn’t the case for most people. What stands between us and a perfect diet is time, finances, access to ingredients or a varying combination of all three. To make up for the nutritional slack, most of us rely on supplements and a multivitamin as part of our daily routine.

Food is always the best place to get the vitamins we need. Many times you can tell what vitamins a food contains by it’s color; vitamins, antioxidants, phytonutrients and chlorophyll also affect color. Let’s go through the rainbow: Red fruits and vegetables contain phytochemicals such as lycopene. Orange and deep orange such as citrus and carrots contain vitamin C and beta-carotene. Yellow fruits and vegetables have enzymes which promote healthy digestion  as well as vitamin C. Green fruits and especially dark green vegetables, contain vitamin K, but also large amounts of vitamin C. Blue and purple fruits and vegetables are high in vitamin C, as well as other antioxidants.

Additionally, vitamin E is a combination of oils and it can be found in nuts. B vitamins are found in animal-based products. Vitamin D3 is found in some animal-based foods, but it can be hard to get enough from food. But most people don’t eat all of these things every day, so supplements are almost always completely necessary to meet our daily requirement of vitamins.

  • The human body requires seven major types of nutrients.
  • Not all nutrients provide energy but are still important, such as water and fiber.
  • Micronutrients are important but required in smaller amounts.
  • Vitamins are essential organic compounds that the human body cannot synthesize.

 Our bodies can’t produce all of the nutrients that we need to function properly, so we have to eat them.

WHAT IS A MULTI AND WHY DO ONE NEEDS ??

For the human body to complete all the tasks it has in a normal day, it must be given a wide and complex variety of vital nutrients. Becoming deficient in any one of these essential vitamins or minerals causes breakdown of the metabolic pathway that produces optimum efficiency and performance goes down quick. Obviously, this is NOT what you want!

Making sure you take a high-potency multivitamin/multi-mineral formula may help ensure the presence of those essential nutrients necessary for thousands of metabolic reactions.

Bodybuilders, athletes, and people that lead active lifestyles need even more nutrients than the average non-active person

You know all of those essential vitamins and minerals that we are supposed to be supplying our bodies with on a daily basis through our diet?

Well, a multivitamin supplies most of them in the form of a super convenient supplement.

The human body requires various vitamins and minerals on a daily basis to keep you alive, healthy and functioning at your best.

Each of those vitamins/minerals have their own benefits and play their own roles in your body. Since a multivitamin provides them, its benefits are that of pretty much every vitamin and mineral it contains.

Problem is, the typical “regular daily diet” these days often fails to do that.

With a multivitamin, you just take a single tablet and you instantly get a daily serving of the vitamins and minerals your diet might be lacking

What do Multivitamins Contain?

There are 13 vitamins and at least 16 minerals that are essential to health.

Many of them participate in enzymatic reactions in the body, or function as hormones, signalling molecules or structural elements.

The body needs these nutrients for reproduction, maintenance, growth and regulation of bodily processes.

Multivitamins may contain many of these vitamins and minerals, but in varying forms and amounts. They can also contain other ingredients like herbs, amino acids and fatty acids.

Now some multis have small differences from others, but for the most part, the multi is comprised of the same individual vitamins and minerals. Even though they are normally packaged together in multis, there are differences between the two.

VITAMINS

Vitamins are organic,more complex than minerals and are required by our bodies for survival. Vitamins control the chemical reactions within the body to convert food into energy and living tissue. They are either water soluble which must be taken daily since they are not stored in the body (Vitamin C and all of the B Vitamins) or fat soluble, which are stored in the body (A, D, E, and K).

Vitamins are vulnerable to heat, light, and chemical agents, so food preparation, processing, and storing it must be appropriate to preserve vitamins so you get the nutritional value out of the meal.

Minerals are inorganic. They are much simpler in chemical form than vitamins. They are much more stable in food preparation than vitamins also. Minerals are categorized as major/macro – (calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, chloride, magnesium, and sulfur), and trace/micro- (iron, iodine, zinc, chromium, selenium, fluoride, molybdenum, copper, and manganese) minerals. MINERALS

Major minerals we need in dosages greater than 100 mg a day. The trace minerals we only need “trace” amounts of daily to suffice. Minerals are used to produce necessary hormones. A simpler way to remember this is that all minerals are found on the periodic table.

 

 

If you eat a well-balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy products and meats, you may well get all the vitamins and minerals your body needs.

However, there are certain times in life, such as during pregnancy, breast-feeding or an illness, that your nutrient requirements may increase. At those times, you may want to take a supplement to ensure you’re getting all the nutrients you need. You may also want to take a multi or other supplement as you get older, because people sometimes start to have problems absorbing vitamins from food as they age. And if you’re on a restricted diet — if you avoid animal products, for instance — you may need a supplement, because your diet may not provide adequate amounts of some nutrients.

What should I avoid while taking multivitamins?

  • Avoid taking more than one multivitamin product at the same time unless your doctor tells you to. Taking similar vitamin products together can result in a vitamin overdose or serious side effects.
  • Avoid the regular use of salt substitutes in your diet if your multivitamin contains potassium. If you are on a low-salt diet, ask your doctor before taking a vitamin or mineral supplement.
  • Do not take this medication with milk, other dairy products, calcium supplements or antacids that contain calcium. Calcium may make it harder for your body to absorb certain ingredients of the multivitamin.

Various Health Benefits of Multivitamins 

Need for multivitamins is different in both men and women, thus the benefits if the same are also different. The nutrient requirement for a male body is different from that of female body, which helps them in managing their daily chores, therefore the benefits of their multivitamins are also different.

When and How Should It Be Taken?

Multivitamins should always be taken with a meal to allow for maximum absorption.

If taking more than 1 tablet per day (for some multivitamin brands, one “serving” is 2 or more tablets), you should take each tablet at a different time of the day. You know, like 1 in the morning and 1 at night.

Food that contain nutrients:

  • Avocados
  • Chard, collard greens, kale, mustard greens, spinach
  • Bell peppers
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Mushrooms (crimini and shiitake)
  • Baked potatoes
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Cantaloupe, papaya, raspberries, strawberries
  • Low-fat yogurt
  • Eggs
  • Seeds (flax, pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower)
  • Dried beans (garbanzo, kidney, navy, pinto)
  • Lentils, peas
  • Almonds, cashews, peanuts
  • Barley, oats, quinoa, brown rice
  • Salmon, halibut, cod, scallops, shrimp, tuna
  • Lean beef, lamb, venison
  • Chicken, turkey

A multivitamin is not a substitute for healthy food or a healthy lifestyle, but it can provide a nutritional back-up for a less than ideal diet. If your diet eliminates whole food groups or you don’t eat enough variety of foods you would benefit from a once-daily multivitamin.It can boost up the nutrient content in our body.

Can Probiotics be Digestive AID ????

dr-madhukar-1

Probiotics & prebiotics are both pretty big topics in nutrition these days. Yet even though they sound similar, the two play different roles for your health. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria, while prebiotics are food for these bacteria.

This article explains what you need to know about the two.

What Are Probiotics and Prebiotics?

 Both are important for human health. However, they play different roles:

  • Probiotics:These  are live microorganisms (in most cases, bacteria) that are similar to beneficial microorganisms found in the human gut. They are also called “friendly bacteria” or “good bacteria.” They are available to consumers mainly in the form of dietary supplements and foods
  • Prebiotics:These substances come from types of carbs (mostly fiber) that humans can’t digest. The beneficial bacteria in your gut eat this fiber.

The gut bacteria, collectively referred to as the gut flora or gut microbiota, perform many important functions in the body.

Eating balanced amounts of both pro- and prebiotics can help ensure that you have the right balance of these bacteria, which should improve your health.

How Prebiotics Work Together with Probiotics to Improve Health ?

While probiotic benefits have become more widely known in recent years, especially with the growing popularity of fermented foods like sauerkraut, kombucha and kimchi, prebiotics still remain under the radar. All types of fiber that we get from eating whole, plant foods play a major role in nutrient absorption, gut and digestive health. Prebiotics, together with probiotics, open the door for heightened levels of health in general, so nearly everyone can afford to include them in their diets more often.

As prebiotics make their way through the stomach without being broken down by either gastric acids or digestive enzymes, they bring about positive changes in the digestive tract and organs. Essentially, prebiotic compounds become nutrient sources, or “fuel,” for the beneficial bacteria that live within your gut.

Prebiotics work together with probiotics (selectively fermented ingredients that produce beneficial bacteria) to allow specific changes to take place, both in the composition and activity of the gastrointestinal system. They play a fundamental role in preserving health by maintaining balance and diversity of intestinal bacteria, especially increasing the presence of “good bacteria” called lactobacilli and bifidobacteria.

Because the health of our gut is closely tied to many other bodily functions, prebiotics and probiotics together are important for battling inflammation and lowering overall disease risk.

Higher intakes of prebiotics are linked to benefits, including:

      • lower risk for cardiovascular disease
      • healthier cholesterol levels
      • better gut health
      • improved digestion
      • lower stress response
      • better hormonal balance
      • higher immune function
      • lower risk for obesity and weight gain
      • lower inflammation and autoimmune reactions

The prebiotic –probiotic connection

As prebiotiics make their  way through the stomach without being broken down ,they bring about positive changes in the digestive tract and organs-becoming nutrient sources or fuel for the beneficial bacteria that live within your gut.

Prebiotics work together with probiotics to allow specific changes to take place ,both in the composition and activity in the gastrointestinal system.They play a fundamental role in preserving health by maintaining balance  and diversity of intestinal bacteria,especially increasing the presence of “good bacteria”.

Because the health of  our gut is closely tied to many other bodily functions,prebiotics and probiotics together are important for battling inflammation and lowering overall  disease risk .

HISTORY

The concept behind probiotics was introduced in the early 20th century, when Nobel laureate Elie Metchnikoff, known as the “father of probiotics,” proposed that consuming beneficial microorganisms could improve people’s health. Researchers continued to investigate this idea, and the term “probiotics”—meaning “for life”—eventually came into use.

DO U KNOW …Many aspects of our Western lifestyles are waging a silent war on the beneficial good guys meant to reside within the digestive tract. An unhealthy diet, prolonged exposure to antibiotics and birth control pills, overzealous hygiene habits, environmental toxins, stress, and other factors can all impact our gut flora.

That’s why it’s so important to get as many of these good guys into your system as you can!

When you take a probiotic, you increase the amount of friendly bacteria that live in your intestines which has a powerful influence on your immune system as well as almost every other facet of your overall health and wellness.

This can include your weight and metabolism; mood and energy levels; the appearance of your skin; balance of yeast; relief from occasional gas, bloating or irregularity; and even the health of your urinary tract.

Regardless of age or season of life, optimizing your digestive health protects and promotes whole-body wellness—and it all starts with a thriving microbiome teeming with good bacteria.

MECHANISM OF BACTERIAL SPECIES

The most common species of bacteria used (among a potential 3,000 or so) are species of Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium. The bacteria are usually freeze-dried (but remain alive); when you take the supplement, they warm up in your digestive system and become fully active. They come as capsules or tablets to swallow and as loose powder to sprinkle on food. Dosages vary by product, so no general dosing recommendation can be made. However, common dosages for adults range from five billion to 10 billion colony-forming units per day. Take just one dose of probiotics per day.

Probiotics are not all alike. For example, if a specific kind of Lactobacillus helps prevent an illness, that doesn’t necessarily mean that another kind of Lactobacillus would have the same effect or that any of the Bifidobacterium probiotics would do the same thing.

Of all the facts, this is the one that’s most overlooked, yet offers tremendous possibility for health and well being.

Researchers are discovering that the potential benefits of probiotics aren’t limited to your gut. Your gut is connected to your brain via what’s called the gut-brain axis. What affects your gastrointestinal tract affects your brain, and vice versa.

When your microbiome is unbalanced, it can affect your mood, mental health, immune health, and even your brain function. Probiotics in your gut appear to be able to make compounds called neuropeptides that directly impact your brain.

These discoveries about the relationship to mental and psychological health underscore the value of probiotics for all ages!

      • Your intestinal organisms form an integral part of who you are (there are 10 times as many of their cells as there are of yours).
      • Beneficial members of your intestinal bacterial community promote critical cellular signaling that influences the health of your intestine and your whole body.
      • Aging, lifestyle, and environmental influences threaten to perturb the balance of your intestinal organisms, leaving you vulnerable to immune disturbances and chronic, age-related conditions.
      • You can strengthen your intestinal organisms by supplementing with probiotics, cultures of beneficial organisms that exert multiple favorable effects.
      • Bifidobacteria in particular have been shown to protect humans against inflammation, infection.
      • A clinically validated strain of bifidobacteria, BB536, arrives in the colon largely intact and ready to boost your intestinal microbial population.
      • BB536 has demonstrated potent immune modulatory effects, reducing inflammation while protecting against infections and promoting cardiovascular health.

When is probiotics needed the most!!!

One is if we’re using a course of antibiotics. “Antibiotics kill bad bacteria, but they also kill good bacteria. So it’s a good idea to use during antibiotic therapy and usually one to two weeks after therapy in order to repopulate the good bacteria in our gastrointestinal tracts.

Another reason for using  is if you’ve had a severe illness like a flu or a food-borne illness in which you’re really sick with bad diarrhea and vomiting, which can sometimes affect the body’s bacterial flora.

Are you struggling with digestive issues?

If you have digestive issues,

This is a sure fire way to know you have an unbalanced gut. Digestive issues tend to occur when your body doesn’t have the right balance of good bacteria  it needs to effectively digest and absorb food.

If you are struggling with digestive issues like constipation, diarrhea, acid reflex, irritable bowel, or leaky gut,

It reduce your risk of leaky gut syndrome, regulate irritable bowel, eliminate diarrhea, and reduce nearly all digestive related challenges.

What should people avoid taking probiotics with?

Hot drinks can reduce the effectiveness  because heat can kill off the bacteria. Instead opt to take the supplement with a cold glass of water.

Naturally obtained sources

Cultured dairy products like:   Natural cheese

Green foods are also good sources:

      • Wheat grass
      • Spirulina
      • Chlorella

BENEFITS INCLUDE

      • boosting immune system.
      • preventing and treating urinary tract infections.
      • improving digestive function.
      • healing inflammatory bowel conditions like IBS (4)
      • managing and preventing eczema in children.
      • fighting food-borne illnesses.

Probiotics for infants: Its  uses  reduces risk of gastrointestinal disorders. During the first 6 months of a child’s life, infant colic, acid reflux and constipation

They also help slim down because they make the intestinal walls less permeable. To get the slimming effect, eating more foods that contain probiotics (like yogurt) and following a healthy diet helps low in fat and high in fiber.

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria found in certain foods or supplements. Prebiotics are types of fiber that humans cannot digest, but your gut bacteria can. These types of fiber provide nutrients to the bacteria that support healthy digestion and immune function.

Probiotic supplements are designed to deliver very specific species of bacteria to the human gut.

Reverse Ageing With Supplements

dr-madhukar-1

In this world, where beauty is important, look young, feel well and have a skin that is beautiful and glowing. Care of health and beauty is the everyday life for every human being. In fact, the basis for caring and maintaining a youth line depends on the adoption of everyday health habits. And to achieve a perfect look as well as to preserve our health, various tips and preparations can help us. If you are a person that is looking for a natural supplement that has the magic to help the skin to look more beautiful, and young that you will love every time you are facing on the mirror. One of them is NutriCheer anti-ageing powder drink with amazing flavour.

The Nature of Ageing

Ageing is an inevitable part of life, however premature ageing is becoming more and more common, leading to early signs of ageing and poor health. You can exert some control over the ageing process by following a healthy diet and lifestyle. Eating a nutrient-rich diet and staying active throughout life helps to slow down the ageing process and may even prevent the development of age-related chronic diseases such as osteoporosis, diabetes and heart disease. Probably no other area in alternative health is more subject to over-promising and under-delivering than anti-ageing. We’re talking about every magic bullet under the sun from face creams to human growth hormone supplements. And what with the baby boomer generation now approaching the age where immortality no longer looks like a birthright, the market is exploding exponentially.The simple fact is that ageing is not the result of any one single factor, but is the cumulative result of a number of factors, including:

  • Cell senescence, or the ageing of cells
  • Diminished telomerase activity
  • Protein degradation
  • Advanced Glycation End Products
  • Excess sugar activity
  • Progressive systemic inflammation
  • Progressive dehydration
  • Accumulated toxic build-up in organ tissue
  • Reduced circulation
  • Reduced cellular energy production
  • Changes in hormone levels and hormone balance
  • Impeded energy flows in the body
  • Excessive body weight
  • And, of course, good old wear and tear

The above list is hardly complete. We could add stress or the accumulation of free radicals in the body or the results of cumulative poor nutrition, etc. The key here is not to identify every single factor (an impossible task), but to understand that if you want to slow the ageing process, you have to look at more than a magic bullet approach involving one or two supplements.

q

An excellent way to improve everyday routine depends largely on a number of natural products we use in supplementing our diet, because only in this way we give your body all the nutrients that it needs to strengthen and maintain youth. Among other things today, the sun is one of the leading reason in skin damage, even when we are indoors, we are not completely protected from harmful sunshine.For this reason, it is very important that we always use sun protection. And it just helps protect us from harmful UV radiation and skin damage.

An important trend in skin care is the use of diet and oral supplements to improve the skin’s appearance and structure. Healthy skin largely reflects the general health status and as such the skin is influenced by the consumption of dietary substances ,including vitamins and anti-oxidants ,fatty acids and hydrolyzed proteins. Therefore, the effects of nutritional factors on the skin have received increasing attention and a number of clinical studies indicated that dietary supplementation can modulate skin functions. To slow down ageing ,collagen can be provided to our body through supplements which will maintain elasticity and regeneration of skin,hair,tendon,cartilage,bones and joints.

Supplement with collagen can slow down the ageing process.It is the most abundant and fibrous protein in the body and is a key constituent of all connective tissues.It decreases with age and provides the infrastructure of the musculoskeletal system,essential for mobility and it is a natural substance in our body which decrease with age.Peptides are short chain amino acids naturally derived from collagen protein. These natural peptides are highly bio-available ,digestible and soluble in cold water.

7 ways that collagen can boost your health

  1. Improves skin and hair
  2. Repairs joints
  3. Helps leaky gut
  4. Boosts metabolism
  5. Strengthens teeth and nails
  6. Helps Detox
  7. Reduces cellulite or stretch marks.

The Things We Can Do to Ourselves

These, of course, are the easiest things to modify.

The Immune System

One of the major causes of death in the elderly is the collapse of the immune system as we age. This makes us susceptible to everything from pneumonia to cancer. Some of this is inevitable, of course, but it is amazing how much of it can be prevented and even reversed.

Inflammation

Chronic inflammation is a major ageing factor and a primary contributor to premature death. It is implicated in everything from lung problems to chronic heart disease, and even cancer. There are a number of things we can do that help reduce inflammation far better and more safely than taking an aspirin every day. Probably the two most important are:

-Regular intake of proteolytic enzymes

-Maintain balance of omega 3 -6-9 in the body .

Toxins

Every day we are exposed to over 100,000 “new” chemicals that have been released into the environment over the last 100 years. Many of them are chemical estrogens potent in amounts as small as a billionth of a gram. Cleansing those toxins out of our bodies with colon and liver detoxes and neutralizing estrogen imbalances in the body are essential for maximizing health and life span.

Circulation and energy flows

Proper circulation in the broad sense (blood, lymph, and energy) is essential for maximized life span.

Blood

If there is any restriction of blood circulation (caused by anything from narrowing of the arteries to tension in the surrounding muscle tissue) several problems arise.

  • Sufficient oxygen can no longer reach key areas of the body.
  • Sufficient nutrients can no longer reach every cell in the body, thus starving them, weakening them, and making them vulnerable to mutation.
  • The waste material produced by the cells can no longer be efficiently removed. The build-up of toxic waste in the cells eventually leads to cell mutation and death.

Lymph

Your lymph is your body’s sewer system, removing dead cells, waste, toxic matter, heavy metals, bacteria, etc. from body tissue. Unfortunately, the lymph system has no pump of its own. If for any reason your lymph is stagnant, you end up poisoning yourself. This accelerates the ageing process and the onset of age-related diseases such as cancer.

Energy

Fundamentally, our bodies are pure energy systems. As you look more and more closely at the subatomic structure of all matter, the physical world begins to disappear. All that’s left is a series of force fields and probabilities that create the illusion of matter as we know it. Certainly, we have to deal with this illusion (the physical world) as we see it, but we also have to deal with the consequences of the world of energy that remains unseen—but is nevertheless the true reality behind all physical matter. The bottom line is that a major factor in the ageing process is when these energies in our body become unbalanced or diminished in any way.

Free Radicals

Scientists now know that free radicals play a major role in the ageing process as well as in the onset of cancer, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and possibly allergies and a host of other ailments. The link between free radicals and the “ageing diseases” is one of the most important discoveries since doctors learned that some illnesses are caused by germs. The use of a full-spectrum antioxidant supplement at a maintenance level may provide the ultimate defense against the premature ageing effects of free radicals. At therapeutic levels, antioxidants may actually play a significant role in reversing many of the effects of ageing and disease.

Exercise and Wear and Tear

No one likes to hear this, but it’s true. If you don’t move, you die. Exercise fundamentally changes every system and function in your body. And the older you get, the more important it is — and the more pronounced the benefits are.Understand, exercise includes weight bearing exercise, aerobic exercise, and the almost universally forgotten stretching exercise.The operative words when it comes to exercise are balance and common sense. If you overdo it, the benefits start to reverse, and you’re looking at long term disability from ligament and cartilage damage.

What You Think

Everyone loves to read about detoxes and supplements, What you think absolutely matters — not just mentally, but physically. Stress and depression are major ageing factors.

Smoking

I don’t really have to talk about this, do I? Smoking not only shortens your life, it makes you look older in the process.

Check out these secrets to stay young:

1.Include Healthy Fats in Your Diet

Eating some fat is necessary for health, but it is important to choose the right kinds. Flaxseed oil is the best choice for dietary fat because it is high in Omega-3, an essential fatty acid that is essential for the building blocks of all cell structures including neurons in brain, smooth skin and healthy hair.

2.Focus on Antioxidants-

Vitamin C
Protects against: Wrinkles and dullness
“Oral and topical vitamin C has been shown in clinical studies to decrease oxidative stress in cells, which helps cells to grow normall.This helps cells regenerate and produce healthier skin, pumping the brakes on wrinkles and making your complexion more vibrant.

Vitamin E
Protects against: Environmental skin damage and dullness
“Research shows that vitamin E has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.” Both factors are important in skin regeneration and cell turnover, the process in which dead skin cells slough off and healthier, more radiant cells take their place. The vitamin also protects skin from wrinkle-forming UV radiation and environmental damage.

Coenzyme Q10
Protects against: Wrinkles
Similar to vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10 is a nutrient that can help contribute to the overall health and appearance of your skin. “Like other antioxidants, it helps cells turn over and reduces cellular damage”.But it has also shown promise as a particularly effective youth-booster.

3.Drink collagen powders daily:

NutriCheer anti-ageing  is one of the product ,completely engineered for optimum health and beauty. It contains hydrolyzed marine collagen that provides skin its strength and elasticity.

Regular consumption of nutrient rich supplements with key ingredients listed above can help you turn the clock back and maintain yourself fit and young.

Calcium Needs at all Life Stages

dr-madhukar-1

Calcium is critical for bone growth, development and maintenance at every age and stage of life.Our bones serve as its storage site for the body, providing this mineral to the bloodstream for use by the heart and other organs. It is the most abundant mineral in the body, present mainly in the bones and teeth. From the start, toddlers have an increased need for dietary calcium to support bone growth and skeletal development that takes place rapidly in the early years of life. This development and its need – continues into the teenage years and is particularly crucial for adolescent girls who need to stock their calcium supplies to prevent osteoporosis later in life. Adequate intake at this stage is needed to support ongoing bone growth and to achieve peak bone mass. It is an essential dietary element required in optimal amounts for good bone health, efficient nerve and muscle function, and overall cardiovascular health. Without enough of it throughout life, a person’s bones can begin to weaken over time. That can make it more difficult to stay active while also creating a higher risk of fractures and osteoporosis.  A person’s bone density will generally reach its peak at roughly age 30, and then begin to fade after that. Adequate daily intake can help maintain proper bone density and help prevent osteoporosis – which creates porous and fragile bones. It makes up about three percent of the earth’s crust and is a basic component of most animals and plants. Eating a diet rich in calcium helps to restore it to the bones; supplements can help as well.

Why is calcium necessary?

It is known mostly for its role in building and maintaining strong bones and teeth, but it is also required for proper functioning of the heart, muscles and nervous system. It plays a role in maintaining normal blood pressure, regulating blood clotting. It is also associated with relieving mood swings, food cravings, and decreasing the pain, tenderness and bloating associated with premenstrual syndrome.

What are the deficiency signs?

Deficiency symptoms (also known as hypocalcemia) range from minor – numbness or tingling of the fingers, muscle cramps, lethargy and poor appetite – to more severe, including mental confusion, skeletal malformations, dermatitis, and in infants, delayed development. Illnesses such as osteoporosis (brittle, thin, porous bones that easily break) and rickets are also associated with a deficiency.

How much, and what kind, does an adult need?

If vitamin D levels are optimal, most adults should be able to meet their daily calcium needs via a varied diet . When individuals are unable to get enough of it through a diet or for those who may need more than the recommended daily allowance, supplements can help. Doctors recommends women supplement with 500 to 700 mg of calcium citrate in two divided doses taken with meals for a total of 1,000-1,200 mg a day from all sources .  Supplementing with its citrate form, which is more easily absorbed than other forms, taken with half the dosage amount of magnesium.

 

How much does a child need?

The normal daily recommended intake for children is as follows: infants through three years of age is 400-800 mg; children between 4 and 10 years of age is 800 mg; adolescent males is 800-1,200 mg; and adolescent females is 800-1,200 mg daily.

How do you get enough from foods?

An abundant source of this mineral in the American diet is dairy products – two glasses of milk per day provide 1,000-1,200 mg. If you choose to get via dairy products – and this is not essential, as there are many other calcium-rich foods – make sure you use only hormone-free, organic dairy products to reduce your exposure to the antibiotics and hormones found in many dairy products. Non-dairy foods  include: greens such as collards, mustard, kale, and bok choy; canned salmon (with bones) and sardines; tofu, soy milk, fruit juice and cereals; blackstrap molasses; and broccoli.

Are there any risks associated with too much?

Its supplements can be constipating, and should be balanced with magnesium as discussed above. Excessive amounts in the blood may have negative effects, including nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and increased urination. More serious complications include kidney toxicity, confusion, and irregular heart rhythm. Studies indicate that men who take too much may have an increased risk of prostate cancer, and should limit their dietary intake to 500-600 mg daily from all sources.

 

Who should we take it as supplements?

It is an important mineral for the human body. It helps build and protect your teeth and bones. Getting enough of it over your lifetime can help prevent osteoporosis.Most people get it through their normal diet. Dairy foods and leafy green vegetables have high levels of calcium. Your health care provider will tell you if you need to take extra dose id required.

TYPES OF CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTS

Forms of calcium include:

Calcium Type Pros
Calcium citrate (21% calcium) Most easily absorbed
Calcium carbonate Least expensive; has more elemental calcium

 

  • Calcium carbonate. Over-the-counter (OTC) antacid products contain it and these sources of it do not cost much. Each pill or chew provides 200 mg or more of calcium.
  • Calcium citrate. This is a more expensive form of calcium. It is absorbed well on an empty or full stomach. People with low levels of stomach acid (a condition that is more common in people over age 50) absorb this  better than other forms.

HOW TO TAKE HIGHER DOSE

Increase the dose of your supplement slowly. Your provider may suggest that you start with 500 mg a day for a week, and then add more over time.Try to spread the extra dose you take over the day. DO NOT take more than 500 mg at a time. Taking it throughout the day will:

  • Allow more calcium to be absorbed
  • Cut down on side effects such as gas, bloating, and constipation

The total amount  adults need every day from food and  supplements:

  • 19 to 50 years: 1,000 mg/day
  • 51 to 70 years: Men – 1,000 mg/day; Women – 1,200 mg/day
  • 71 years and over: 1,200 mg/day

SIDE EFFECTS AND SAFETY

DO NOT take more than the recommended amount of it. Try the following if you have side effects from taking extra calcium:

  • Drink more fluids.
  • Eat high-fiber foods
  • Switch to another form of calcium if the diet changes do not help.

Always tell your provider and pharmacist if you are taking extra dose.Its supplements may change the way your body absorbs some medicines. These include certain types of antibiotics and iron pills. 

Calcium-supplement

 

Are there any other special considerations?

  • Vitamin Dis key to absorbing and so make sure to get adequate intake of vitamin D. Vitamin D, often referred to as the “sunshine vitamin,” is actually a fat-soluble hormone that the body can synthesize naturally. There are several forms, including two that are important to humans: D2 and D3. Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is synthesized by plants, and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is synthesized by humans when skin is exposed to ultraviolet-B (UVB) rays from sunlight. The active form of the vitamin is calcitriol, synthesized from either D2 or D3 in the kidneys. Vitamin D helps to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus.
  • Vitamin K2 is a beneficial form of Vitamin K for bones. Unlike Vitamin K1 which is used to activate blood clotting proteins, Vitamin K2 is beneficial for activating proteins which help bind calcium to bones. Vitamin K2 is found in food but not in anywhere near the concentration found in Osteo-K. Taking Osteo-K helps boost daily intake of vitamin K2 to support bone health.Older people may need to take it in extra  larger doses because they do not absorb it as well as younger people.

If you take oral vitamin D,you also need to take vitamin K2.Vitamin K2  helps to move calcium to proper areas where its needed and removes it from sites where it shouldn’t be present like arteries and soft tissues. When you take vitamin D, your body creates more of these vitamin K2-dependent proteins, the proteins that will move it around.They have a lot of potential health benefits. But until the K2 comes in to activate those proteins, those benefits aren’t realized. So, really, if you’re taking vitamin D, you’re creating an increased demand for K2.Vitamin K2 deficiency is one of the reason why people suffer from vitamin D toxicity symptoms which includes improper calcification leading to hardening of arteries.And vitamin D and K2 work together to strengthen your bones and improve your heart health.

It seems likely that 150 to 200 mgs of vitamin k2 is enough to activate your K2 dependent  proteins to shuttle calcium to proper areas.

How can you tell that you are deficit of vitamin k2?

There is no specific tests for finding it. By assessing the lifestyle and diet you eat ,one can find whether he is lacking the critical nutrients needed for the body .If you face following health conditions then you are likely deficient in vitamin K2.

  • Do you have osteoporosis?
  • Do you have heart disease?
  • Do you have diabetes?

If you are facing such symptoms, its better to think on deficiencies and take necessary steps.

Anti Obesity

dr-madhukar-1

What do we mean by being Healthy? How do we know our body or mind is enjoying a state of Health? One has an awareness of the healthiness of one’s diet and lifestyle, but still changing according to the western modern culture , constantly  bombarded  by  fast  food at every  corner,  spend  countless  hours  in  front  of  the television  being sedentary. And, as  a result of all of this, there exists a generation that is out-of-shape, overweight and obese.

Obesity is a common, serious and growing problem.Obesity is a condition where a person has accumulated so much body fat that it might have a negative effect on their health. If a person’s bodyweight is at least 20% higher than it should be, he or she is considered obese. Overweight or obese patients who have not lost an average of 1 lb (0.5 kg) per week after at least six months on a balanced low-calorie diet, including increased exercise and behavior therapy, may be considered candidates for weight loss drugs.To screen for overweight and obesity, doctors measure BMI using calculations that depend on whether you are a child or an adult. A healthy weight for adults is usually when your BMI is 18.5 to less than 25.

What causes otal cause of obesity is an energy imbalance between calories consumed and cabesity ???

The fundamenlories expended. Globally, there has been:

  • an increased intake of energy-dense foods that are high in fat; and
  • an increase in physical inactivity due to the increasingly sedentary nature of many forms of work, changing modes of transportation, and increasing urbanization.

Causes of obesity

At individual level, the combination of excessive food energy intake and lack of physical activity is thought to explain most of obesity causes. In limited cases, obesity is due to genetic factors, medical reasons, or psychiatric illness.On the other hand, increasing rates of obesity at a societal level are felt to be due to easily accessible and palatable diet, increased reliance on cars, and mechanized manufacturing. A 2006 review identified ten other possible contributors to the recent increase of obesity including insufficient sleep, endocrine disruptors, decreased variability in ambient temperature, decreased rates of smoking, as smoking suppresses appetite, increased use of medications that can cause weight gain (e.g., atypical antipsychotics), proportional increases in ethnic and age groups that tend to be heavier, pregnancy at a later age (which may cause susceptibility to obesity in children), epigenetic risk factors passed on generationally, natural selection for higher BMI, and assortative mating leading to increased concentration of obesity risk factors.

 Diet

Obesity rates in the US (1971–2000) increased from 14.5% to 30.9%.During the same period, there was an increase in the average amount of food consumed (average increase for women 335 and 168 cal./day). Most of this extra food energy was due to the increase in carbohydrates rather than fat consumption.

 

Sedentary lifestyle

There is a large shift toward less physically demanding work worldwide. Currently, at least 60% of the world’s population gets insufficient exercise, due to increased use of mechanized transportation and a greater prevalence of labor-saving technology at home.The WHO indicates people worldwide are taking up less active recreational pursuits. In both children and adults, there is an association between television viewing time and the risk of obesity.

Genetics

Like many other medical conditions, obesity is the result of interplay between genetic and environmental factors. Polymorphisms in various genes controlling appetite and metabolism predispose to obesity when sufficient food energy is present. People with two copies of the FTO gene (fat mass and obesity associated gene) have been found on average to weigh 3–4 kg more and have a 1.67 fold greater risk of obesity compared to those without the risk allele. Some cases of obesity are related to single-gene mutations, e.g. melano-cortin-4 receptor (MC4R) gene, dopamine receptor D4 (DRD4), peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor y2 (PPARy2) or the leptin genes.

 Medical and psychiatric illness

Certain physical and mental illnesses and medications used to treat them can increase the risk of obesity. Medical illnesses that increase obesity risk include several rare genetic syndromes (Cohen syndrome), as well as some congenital or acquired conditions: hypothyroidism, growth hormone deficiency,and eating disorders (binge eating disorder and night eating syndrome).The risk of overweight and obesity is higher in patients with psychiatric disorders than in persons without psychiatric disorders.

Social determinants

Genetic influences are important to understand obesity. They cannot explain the current dramatic increase in obesity. Though, excess energy consumption than energy expenditure leads to obesity on individual basis. The cause of the shifts in these two factors on societal scale is much debated.In developing countries women of a high social class were less likely to be obese. No significant differences were seen among men of different social classes. In the developing world, population of high social classes had greater rates of obesity.Smoking has a significant effect on an individual’s weight. Those who quit smoking will gain an average of 4.4 kg (men) and 5.0 kg (women) over ten years. However, changing rates of smoking have little effect on the overall rates of obesity.

 Infectious agents

The study of infectious agent’s effect on metabolism is still in its early stages. The gut flora in obese and lean individuals can affect the metabolic potential. This apparent alteration is believed to confer a greater capacity to gain energy contributing to obesity. An association between viruses and obesity has been found in humans and several different animal species.

 Pathophysiology

Leptin and ghrelin are internal mediators that affect feeding and appetite. Ghrelin is produced by the stomach modulating short-term appetitive control (i.e., to eat when the stomach is empty and to stop when the stomach is stretched). Leptin is produced by white adipose tissue to signal fat storage reserves in the body and mediates long-term appetitive controls (i.e., to eat more when fat storages are low and less when fat storages are high). It plays a critical role in the regulation of body weight and energy balance by inhibiting food intake and stimulating energy expenditure.Although, administration of leptin may be effective in a small subset of obese individuals who are leptin deficient. Most obese individuals are thought to be leptin resistant and have been found to have high levels of leptin. This resistance is thought to explain in part why administration of leptin has not been shown to be effective in suppressing appetite in most obese people. Although leptin and ghrelin are produced peripherally, they control appetite through their actions on the central nervous system. Thus, a deficiency in leptin signaling either via leptin deficiency or leptin resistance leads to overfeeding and may account for some genetic and acquired forms of obesity.

In a well balanced body system,  nourishment to these tissues is provided through various micro channels. However, when it is aggravated, it leads to production of toxins in the body. These toxins are heavy and dense in nature and accumulate in weaker channels of the body, causing their blockage. In the case of an obese person, toxins accumulate in fat channels, thereby leading to an increase in the production of fat tissue. When the body produces more fat tissues, it causes an increase in weight.

The treatment for this condition focuses on cleansing of the micro channels through cleansing herbs so that excess weight can be reduced.

NutriCheer

MAKES FAT TO FIT

Following are the ingredients that will help you to remain fit

 White kidney bean extract-Extracts made from white kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) are promoted for weight loss because they are thought to act as “starch blockers” by inhibiting the starch-digesting enzyme amylase which otherwise turns the starch you eat into absorbable sugar. White bean extract may be helpful for weight loss because the beans produce substances that interfere with an enzyme called amylase that is necessary for the breakdown of carbohydrates, which are one of the main sources of calories in many diets. If carbohydrates aren’t broken down into small enough units, your body can’t absorb them and can’t make use of the calories they provide. Absorbing fewer calories can help create the calorie deficit necessary for weight loss. Of course, this is most effective with complex carbohydrates, such as starches. Some sugars are already in small enough units that they can be readily absorbed by the intestines, so white bean extract wouldn’t affect their absorption. The fundamental theory of a white bean diet is that white kidney beans or their extracts have the potential to lower the glycemic index of certain high carbohydrate foods. The glycemic index of a food is an assessment of how quickly a carbohydrate increases blood sugar. Fibres that it contains reduces  formation of excess harmful cholesterol and also helps in reduction of post prandial plasma glucose level.

Black pepper extract   Black pepper extract (piper nigrum), is the only product from piperine to obtain a patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds.

Benefits :

· Weight Loss, Skin Health, Respiratory Relief,  Good for the Stomach,  Black pepper prevents body fat accumulation and new fat cell formation , boosts metabolism, helps burn calories quickly,  prevents oxidative stress induced in obesity

 Grape seed extract– It blocks conversion of triglycerides to fatty acids , ultimately reducing absorption of fats. Seeds from red and purple grapes contain high levels of vitamin E, flavonoids, linoleic acid and the powerful antioxidant compounds known as oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes, or OPC’s, that may improve overall health and also prove to be an effective tool in fighting obesity and assisting in weight loss. Grape seed extracts contain potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may improve overall health and also prove to be an effective tool in fighting obesity and assisting in weight loss.

Garcinia combogia extract Garcinia cambogia is a plant native to Indonesia and is often referred to as gambooge. The plant bears a yellowish fruit that has a shape similar to a small pumpkin. G. cambogia may actually help to boost weight loss and acts as appetite suppressor too. Garcinia cambogia causes weight loss by oxidation of low-density lipoprotein oxidation. Low-density lipoprotein is considered as a  bad form of cholesterol, and oxidation is the process of burning energy.

Guggul extractThis extract can inhibit synthesis of cholesterol, speeds up excess excretion of cholesterol.It appears to promote weight loss by affecting your thyroid to stimulate metabolism and other key bodily actions like burning of calories and fats. In addition, the mechanism of action was the removal of adipocytes, or fat cells, via cell death.

Ginger extract-Ginger increases metabolism, stimulates circulation and excretion of toxins from the body. It lowers cholesterol by significantly reducing serum and hepatic cholesterol levels. Ginger acts as weight-loss aid that may suppress hunger,which makes cutting calories easier. It promotes the production of bile and may stimulate the production of gastric juices, both of which enhance digestion and make more energy available to burn.

Green tea extract– Green tea extract high in catechins decreases body weight, body fat and  is particularly beneficial for boosting metabolism during exercise. Green tea also contains another compound often used for its potential to boost the metabolism and promote weight loss – caffeine by way of fat oxidation and thermogenesis.

Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice)extract– It is  rich in flavonoids and is proven to exert anti-obesity action by regulating enzymatic activity involved in fat deposition and break down.

  • Glabridinis a major flavonoid that prevents weight gain by suppressing abdominal fat accumulation, inhibiting development of fat tissue and lowering blood sugar levels.
  • Glycyrrhiza chalconesalso come under the flavonoid group of licorice which demonstrate anti-obesity and lipid lowering effect.
  • Glycyrrhizic acidobtained from licorice is found to decrease elevated leptin levels and decrease fat tissue produced as a result of high carbohydrate diet. Leptin is hunger hormone, suppression of which decreases appetite and food intake.
  • 18β-glycyrrhetinic acidis another bioactive compound isolated from licorice. This compound reduces body weight, body fat and lipids exhibiting weight loss.It prevents development of fat cells and stimulates breakdown of fats in existing fat cells.

NutriCheer Antiobesity is the health supplement introduced by Dr. Madhukar Pharmaceuticals with the combination of all best ingredients to get rid of extra fats .

What is Calcium and What Does it Do?

dr-madhukar-1

When people think of calcium,bone health is usually the first thing that comes to mind, but calcium’s benefits go far beyond helping to build and maintain skeletal structure. A calcium-rich diet (including dairy, nuts, leafy greens and fish) helps to build and protect your bones.Calcium is a mineral that is necessary for life. In addition to building bones and keeping them healthy, calcium helps our blood clot, nerves send messages and muscles contract. About 99 percent of the calcium in our bodies is in our bones and teeth. Each day, we lose calcium through our skin, nails, hair, sweat, urine and faeces, but our bodies cannot produce new calcium.

Taking calcium from bones to perform other functions replaces this lost calcium. So, you should get sufficient calcium from your diet or supplements. 99% of calcium absorbed by the body is stored in bones and teeth.How much ever calcium you take in your diet, it won’t get absorbed if you don’t have sufficient vitamin D levels in your body.Hence both calcium and vitamin D are essential for you. Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption in the body. It helps to reduce the risk of fractures in elder patients. Adequate calcium with vitamin D3 intake as a part of well-balanced diet may reduce the risk of bone health. People who have digestive disorders that make it hard to break down and use calcium are also at a higher risk for calcium deficiency.

That’s why it’s important to try to get calcium from the food we eat. When we don’t get enough calcium for our body’s needs, it is taken from our bones .

What is Vitamin D and What Does it Do?

 

Vitamin D plays an important role in protecting your bones and your body requires it to absorb calcium. Children need vitamin D to build strong bones, and adults need it to keep their bones strong and healthy. If you don’t get enough vitamin D, you may lose bone, have lower bone density, and you’re more likely to break bones as you age.

Calcium-supplement

How Much Vitamin D Do You Need?

 

WOMEN AND MEN

Under age 50 – 400-800 international units (IU) daily**

Age 50 and above-800-1,000 IU daily**

Some people need more vitamin D.Vitamin D and calcium can be your best friends if you want to keep your bones healthy. Get the right amount and you’ll be less likely to break one or get a bone-weakening disease called osteoporosis.

To figure out how much vitamin D is right for you, you need to get familiar with something called an “international unit,” or IU for short. That’s how vitamin D is measured.For calcium, the amount you need depends on your age and gender

  • All adults 19-50: 1,000 milligrams
  • Adult men 51-70: 1,000 milligrams
  • Adult women 51-70: 1,200 milligrams
  • All adults 71 and older: 1,200 milligrams
  • Pregnant/breastfeeding women: 1,000 milligrams
  • Pregnant teens: 1,300 milligrams

 

How Do You Get Vitamin D and Calcium?

 

Vitamin D has multiple roles in the body, not all of them well-understood. You can load up on calcium from a lot of different kinds of food. For example, add some dairy to your diet, such as milk, cheese, and yogurt. Or try veggies like broccoli, kale, and Chinese cabbage.

Want a simple plan to get the recommended 1,000 milligrams a day? You can do it if you eat a packet of fortified oatmeal, a cup of fortified orange juice, a cup of yogurt, and half a cup of cooked spinach.

Another source of the nutrient is the sun. Your body makes it from sunlight. But you need to wear sunscreen to protect your skin, and that blocks your body from making vitamin D. Also, it can be hard to make enough from the winter sun, depending on where you live.

If you’re not getting all the vitamin D and calcium you need from food, you can get it from supplements .

What are some calcium deficiency signs?

 

Calcium deficiency symptoms (also known as hypocalcemia) range from minor – numbness or tingling of the fingers, muscle cramps,problems with proper blood clotting, lethargy and poor appetite – to more severe, including mental confusion, skeletal malformations, dermatitis, and in infants, delayed development in children’s growth and development. Illnesses such as osteoporosis (brittle, thin, porous bones that easily break) and rickets are also associated with a deficiency.

Who should consider calcium supplements?

 

Even if you eat a healthy, balanced diet, you may find it difficult to get enough calcium if you:

  • Follow a vegan diet
  • Have lactose intolerance and limit dairy products
  • Consume large amounts of protein or sodium, which can cause your body to excrete more calcium
  • Have osteoporosis
  • Are receiving long-term treatment with corticosteroids
  • Have certain bowel or digestive diseases that decrease your ability to absorb calcium, such as inflammatory bowel disease or celiac disease

In these situations, calcium supplements may help you meet your calcium requirements. Talk to your doctor or dietitian to determine if calcium supplements are right for you.

Reading Food Labels – How Much Calcium am I Getting?

 

To determine how much calcium is in a particular food, check the nutrition facts panel of the food label for the daily value (DV) of calcium. Food labels list calcium as a percentage of the DV. This amount is based on 1,000 mg of calcium per day. For example:

30% DV of calcium equals 300 mg.
20% DV of calcium equals 200 mg of calcium.
15% DV of calcium equals 150 mg of calcium.

In general, you shouldn’t take supplements that you don’t need. Calcium supplements are available without a prescription in a wide range of preparations (including chewable and liquid) and in different amounts. The best supplement is the one that meets your needs based on convenience, cost and availability. When choosing the best supplement to meet your needs, keep the following in mind:

  • Read the product label carefully to determine the amount of elemental calcium, which is the actual amount of calcium in the supplement, as well as how many doses or pills to take. When reading the label, pay close attention to the “amount per serving” and “serving size.”
  • Take most calcium supplements with food.Eating food produces stomach acid that helps your body absorb most calcium supplements. The one exception to the rule is calcium citrate, which can absorb well when taken with or without food. Calcium citrate works well on both empty stomach as well as with food and can be taken anytime.This is also found to be a better option for elderly folks ,who has less stomach acid to absorb the product
  • The total daily dose.Calcium is absorbed most efficiently when it’s taken in amounts of 500 milligrams (mg) or less at one time. So if you take 1,000 mg of calcium a day, split it into two or more doses over the day.
  • When starting a new calcium supplement, start with a smaller amount to better tolerate it.When switching supplements, try starting with 200-300 mg every day for a week, and drink an extra 6-8 ounces of water with it. Then gradually add more calcium each week.
  • Necessity of vit k with calcium.If you take oral vitamin D,you also need to take vitamin K2.Vitamin K2  helps to move calcium to proper areas where its needed and removes it from sites where it shouldn’t be present like arteries and soft tissues. When you take vitamin D, your body creates more of these vitamin K2-dependent proteins, the proteins that will move the calcium around. They have a lot of potential health benefits. But until the K2 comes in to activate those proteins, those benefits aren’t realized. So, really, if you’re taking vitamin D, you’re creating an increased demand for K2.Vitamin K2 deficiency is one of the reason why people suffer from vitamin D toxicity symptoms which includes improper calcification leading to hardening of arteries.And vitamin D and K2 work together to strengthen your bones and improve your heart health.

Choosing The Right Calcium – What About Supplements?

 

The science is clear: the kind of calcium you ingest is of utmost importance to your bone health.

Obtaining as much calcium as possible from foods is optimal, but it’s understandable that maintaining a high enough daily dose with foods alone is nearly impossible. So turning to supplements makes sense.

However, it’s crucial that the supplement you choose be bioavailable and easily absorbed. It should also be a fairly low dose, so you are not taking in more calcium than you can absorb. After all, high doses are not necessary if the maximum amount of calcium is being taken up by your system.Before taking calcium supplements make sure that there is a proper balance between calcium, vitamin D, vitamin K2 and magnesium.Lack of balance of these nutrients can lead to calcium supplements related health risks such as heart attacks and stroke.Therefore,taking calcium supplement at right time and in a proper way can help us to stay healthy and fit.

All About Amino Acids: The Why, How and Where

dr-madhukar-1

helps maintain a balance of proteins within the body to assist in overall repair, energy, and growth. This amino acid also helps the body’s connective tissues and joints in good health by producing glycine and serine in the body, two essential amino acids needed for healthy bones, skin, hair, and nails.The highest sources of this amino acid are: spirulina (which even exceed meat),pumpkin, leafy greens, hemp seeds, chia seeds, soybeans, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and sunflower

butter, almonds, avocados, figs, raisins, quinoa, and wheat . Sprouted grains are also excellent sources of this amino acid as well.

  1. Tryptophan

It is known as the relaxing amino acid, tryptophan has major role in forming healthy nervous system and brain health,along with sleep, muscle growth and repair and overall neurotransmitter function. It’s one of the most prominent amino acids found in milk and cheese that cause those foods to make you feel sleepy and relaxed.

Plant-based sources that include high amounts of tryptophan include: oats and oat bran, seaweed,

hemp seeds, chia seeds, spinach, watercress, soybeans, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, parsley, beans, beats,asparagus, mushrooms, all lettuces, leafy greens, beans, avocado, figs, winter squash, celery, peppers,carrots, chickpeas, onions, apples, oranges, bananas, quinoa, lentils, and peas.

  1. Valine

Valine is another BCAA needed for optimal muscle growth and repair. It is also responsible for endurance and the overall maintenance of good muscle health.

High sources of valine include: beans, spinach, legumes, broccoli, sesame seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds,soy, peanuts, whole grains, figs, avocado, apples, sprouted grains and seeds, blueberries, cranberries,oranges, and apricots.

  1. Histidine

This amino acid helps transport neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) to the brain and also helps

overall muscle health within each muscle cells. It even helps to detoxify the body by producing red and white blood cells needed for overall health and immunity. Not obtaining enough histidine can result in arthritis, sexual disfunction, and even deafness. It can also make the body more susceptible to the AIDS virus.

Good plant-based sources of histidine include: rice, wheat, rye, seaweed, beans, legumes, hemp seeds, chia seeds, buckwheat, potatoes, cauliflower and corn.

Boosting Benefits of Amino Acid Supplement

Amino acid supplements are most often associated with bodybuilders. After all, muscle consists of protein and amino acids do help build muscle.But individual amino acids also serve a variety of health-promoting roles in the body. When you digest protein, your body breaks it down into individual amino acids and then reconstitutes them as needed.

Balanced Dosage – Getting balanced dose of amino acids is necessary. Taking a daily BCAA (Branched chain amino acids)supplement containing approximately 2.5 grams of leucine, 1.25 grams of isoleucine and 1.25 grams of valine.To get the full benefit of BCAAs, then a dedicated amino acid supplement such as Nutricheer Amino Acid, is needed.

Improved Muscle Growth – The primary reason that people turn to amino acid supplements,

though, has to do with muscle growth.BCAA is mainly targeted for muscle growth  which includes leucine,isoleucine and valine. Leucine, in particular, has been shown to regulate and

improve muscle protein synthesis after exercise. Stimulated by the stress of your workout and

encouraged by the jolt of leucine, then, your muscles will have everything they need to grow

and be better prepared for your next workout.

Increased Endurance – Amino acid supplements change the way your body uses your primary

fuel sources – carbs and fat. For many athletes, especially those who depend on short bursts of

power like sprints, glycogen depletion is a major problem, leading to exhaustion and a sharp

drop in performance.

Greater Fat Burn – For those trying to loose some body fat or athletes training on a low-carb diet,then, BCAAs will help your body make the switch to depending on fat for fuel.

Reduced Fatigue – BCAAs have demonstrated the ability to ward off the mental fatigue that

sometimes accompanies long workouts. Primarily, this is because the relationship between low

BCAAs and tryptophan. Normally, when your BCAA levels drop, your body produces more

tryptophan which then becomes serotonin in your brain and leads to feelings of tiredness and

mental fatigue. BCAA supplements prevent this process.

Increased Mental Focus – By keeping the tryptophan monster away, amino acid supplements

improve your short term memory and processing abilities. During competitions – especially

those that last for several hours – this can be the key to victory.

Muscle Sparing-After you workout, your body repairs or replaces damaged muscle fibers through a cellular process where it fuses muscle fibers together to form new muscle protein strands or myofibrils. These repaired myofibrils increase in thickness and number to create muscle hypertrophy (growth).Usually, this damage is exactly what your body needs to rebuild and get stronger. Sometimes, however,things go too far and your muscles are actually broken down and used for fuel. Endurance athletes and those who routinely exercise in a fasted state or at a caloric deficit are especially at risk here. BCAAs,however, protect your muscle fibers from suffering too much damage.

Improved Recovery – This ability to increase muscle protein synthesis and guard your muscles

means that you can recover from your workouts faster, getting back to your routine with less

downtime. And remember, it’s during these period of rest that your fitness improves, ensuring

that your recovery is complete and rapid.

Improved athletes Performance – It can improve your overall performance by enhancing nitrogen retention and increasing muscle mass, to prevent protein catabolism during prolonged exercise, to promote muscle glycogen resynthesis following exercise, and to prevent sports anemia by promoting an increased synthesis of hemoglobin, myoglobin, oxidative enzymes, and mitochondria during aerobic training. Thereby your body will respond better to your workouts and your mind will operate more efficiently during the actual event, keeping you more focused.
