WATER – A vital part of a healthy diet

0

Today I want to draw our attention to the importance of drinking water.
About seventy-one percent of the earth’s surface is water, (albeit salt water), and even more of it is fresh water.
About sixty percent of our body is water. The human brain is about seventy percent water.
The human lung is about ninety percent water. Water lubricates our joints, cushions our organs, digests our food, and transports waste out of our bodies in urine, perspiration and faecal matter, and helps to control our body temperature. Are we beginning to get the picture? Water is crucial to maintaining our body structure as well as the functioning of our body.

Because water has the ability to dissolve so many substances, it allows our cells to dissolve and make use of the nutrients in the food we consume. So then we can conclude that if we go the length to ensure that we consume a variety of nutrients to improve our health; then it is just as necessary to drink enough water to complete the process. It would be like putting those fertilizer pellets on top of the soil and not watering the soil to give those nutrients the opportunity to be absorbed by the roots.
Water also flushes the waste substances (toxins) out of your organs. Without enough water in our body these toxins not only compromise the proper functioning of our organs but may eventually destroy the organs.
Many fruits and vegetables, milk and other foods contain water, but not in sufficient quantities as is required. It is always necessary to drink additional water.
One’s water needs vary on factors such as climate, body weight, and lifestyle. An average woman needs about 2 liters of water on a daily basis, and men need slightly more. It is not a good idea to replace water consumption with other beverages. In addition to adding calories, some beverages like coffee are diuretics and actually draw water from the body.
Although this rarely happens, it is possible to drink too much water. If water is consumed too rapidly, our kidneys can‘t get rid of the water fast enough. It remains in the body, dilutes the blood, and reduces the proportion of sodium (salt) that is necessary for proper proper body functioning. This can be fatal.
One theory claims that by the time we feel thirsty, our body is already lacking in water. Another theory claims that many times when we feel hungry, we are really thirsty for this life-giving water.
I hope that I have made a good case of convincing everyone to make sure that you drink enough pure clean water every day. The life and health of our body depends on it.

As we become more and more aware of the nutritional content of our food, and how we can help our bodies to heal and repair itself, there are certain foods and nutrients that we are now more cognizant of that can be of tremendous benefit to our Health and Wellness.

Several years ago, the word antioxidants was not a part of the vocabulary of most people.

Now we are more aware of what they are, why we need them, and what foods we should include in our daily diet to have an ample supply.

Concepts Like; tomatoes contain lycopene, red grapes contain resveratrol and, apples, berries and grapes contain quercitin and other bioflavonoids are more familiar to health conscious individuals. More information on essential nutrition can be viewed here. www.ibourl.com/djq

VEHICLE FOR LIFE

0

Life is a journey” I am sure you’ve heard it said before. And it is. It has a beginning and an end.
We start at birth. We want to arrive at old age. Every day, every year, every stage of life opens new possibilities and new experiences. We make plans for our future. We set milestones along the way. Hopefully, we make decisions along the way that will make that journey as long as possible. We want to be here seventy, eighty, perhaps ninety years after we begin our journey.
In this era that we live in presently, almost any journey requires the use of some form of vehicle. It may be a car, a plane, or a ship, but, we want a reliable mode of transportation that we are confident has the ability to take us safely to our destination. There is nothing guaranteed and things happen that may hamper the process, but at least we start out with the understanding that all things being equal, the trip will be safe.

Remember that journey of life? Individual also needs a VEHICLE to take us on journey through life. It is our physical bodies that can carry us through life. Think about it. No body-no life. Broken body- rocky life. Sick or incapacitated body- the journey is basically stagnant.

There are some events which we don’t have much control over, that can alter our journey of life, and like I said before, things happen. But for the most part we have some measure of control over the condition of our body.

YOUR VEHICLE FOR LIFE—-Just like a vehicle, the body needs fuel, regular maintenance, and mostly to pay attention to when something is not quite right.

FUEL–Just like your vehicle cannot perform without fuel, neither can our bodies. Without the right, clean optimum fuel, it may run for a while, but the quality of the performance will decline over time. The right nutrients in your diet are as crucial to its performance as the fuel in your car. We don’t put the wrong things in our fuel tank, why would we put it in our bodies?
MAINTENANCE—Every now and again, we need an oil change for the vehicle, because muck and dirt accumulates and hinders the performance. Same thing with our bodies. We need a regular detoxification and cleansing to give our systems and organs power.

PAYING ATTENTION–If you heard a clicking in our vehicle we would worry about it. But we ignore the clicking in your knee, the headache, the heartburn, and the irritating digestive issues. These are all signs that something is not quite right. Don’t ignore those symptoms. And some bodily malfunctions have no warning signs or symptoms, so the proactive thing to do is –your best. Eat and drink right. Get enough rest, and relaxation. Feed your body the right nutrients. The body is made to heal and repair itself as long as it has the tools to do it with.

Unlike going from one location to another, we have no choices regarding what vehicle we will use to get there. Our body is the only vehicle that can take us through life. Making every effort possible to keep it is good condition, and protecting it from outside attacks is the best way to ensure that it is up to the challenge of taking us safely through life. And the attack is not only physical in nature. It can be as simple as the air we breathe, the water we drink, and what we do consume, and more importantly, DO NOT CONSUME.

We don’t want the plane falling from the sky, or the car stalling in the middle of the highway. Neither do we want our bodies failing us at a crucial point in our journey of life.

One way you can ensure your body has the tools for daily use is NATRABURST. Don’t let it pass you by. Life and the only vehicle we have do not have to be a game of chance. Get nutritional support for your vehicle. www.ibourl.com/djq www.ibourl.com/eo2

An Idea Whose time Has Come

This world is constantly evolving. Some of it may be detrimental and, not so good for the planet. Like soil erosion, global warming, fast food and pollution; to name a few.
But there have been so many innovations that have made life better, and more exciting as we progress. Are you old enough to know when you had to get up to change the channel on the television set? When you had to stick your finger into a little hole to dial a telephone number? We may have seen pictures of the first cell phones that fit in the trunk of a car, but most of us never saw a real one, because they were not so accessible or affordable.
Suffice it to say that, as we progress, we welcome inventions, upgrades and innovations.
For many reasons, some of which we are not aware, we have found it a huge challenge to control our body weight and resulting health challenges, over time. The rate of obesity in many countries of the world has grown in numbers and has begun to span a wider age group. Obesity is not just about not being able to find cute dresses in your size. It has some cohorts, like diabetes, toxins, hypertension, heart disease etc.
It has become crucial that we address the matter of being overweight, in the interest of being able to enjoy all that we strive for and want to accomplish in this life.
Gastric by-pass, lap band surgery, and other surgical procedures offered hope for those that could afford it and were well enough to undergo the procedure.
It is the year 2011. Enter an idea called SKINNY BODY CARE. The world was waiting on this new idea, and the world made no bones about embracing it.

Super Greens And Your Health

0

Your grandmother was right. You should eat your greens. Why? You ask. Because they are good for you!! But, do we really know how good those bright green leaves are for our nutritional armor and overall good health?
Green leafy vegetables carry an impressive list of nutritional credentials. This food group includes stars such as spinach, broccoli, collards, turnip greens, kale etc. which all deliver an armory of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients (nutrients found only in plants)
Some grasses are included in this list of nutritional gems such as wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, and lemongrass.
Green leafy vegetables have been credited with having the most concentrated source of minerals including iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. The vitamin armory includes vitamins K, C, E, and many of the B vitamins.
Spirulina and chlorella are algae which are in the group that has been credited with boosting the immune system, detoxification, and chelating effects (heavy metal cleansing).
Consuming dark leafy vegetables help to alkalinize the body, thus ensuring another set of health benefits.
This food group has also been credited with certain phytonutrients including beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which protect our cells from damage and our eyes from age-related problems. Some studies suggest that lutein and zeaxanthin may help reduce the risk of certain types of cancer.Dark green leaves are said to even contain small amounts of Omega-3 fats.
Because dark leafy greens have very few carbs, and their fiber content is high, they are slow to digest, and so have a low glycemic index, helping to maintaining healthy blood glucose levels.
Many persons have struggled for many years to include greens in their diet. Juicers are laying on the kitchen countesr because they are time consuming and cumbersome. We want our greens but it is not as simple as it should be. We can buy some fresh greens, but do we know where to find fresh grasses and algae? And is it feasible to buy a variety of supplements to get our daily benefits?
Here is an option that will prove to be cost effective, convenient and nutritionally sound.
One of the blends in NATRABURST is an impressive GREENS BLEND. www.ibourl.com/djq for product details.
