How Important is Food?

Whole V Processed

 

 

 

People still underestimate the importance of good (whole) food. Just to eat until you are full, is not good enough, if you eat a lot of junk. Firstly, you will not get enough correct nutrition, secondly, you will crave more, and thirdly, the stomach will stretch slightly so you will need more next time. Before you know, you will look like a pregnant buffalo. If you are eating the correct nutrition, you will feel full sooner, eliminating this problem.

Junk Food

We can eat junk food and still feel good, have energy to run and work so it seems OK, right. Wrong, short term our body is extremely good at coping with shortages. It is the way we have evolved, from times of famine etc. Junk food will normally have plenty of carbohydrates, this is what gives us energy to move, and the missing nutrients will not have an effect for some time.

Remember, food processors/manufacturers compete with each other for sales, to make profit for their shareholders. They are not interested in your health. They add a lot of artificial flavourings, colours, preservatives, sugar and salt, while the last two cancel each other’s taste out; they still give a food a certain mmm factor, hiding the fact that there is very little whole food nutrition. It is no wonder that youngsters think real food tasteless.

Bone Health

If you are getting on in years, you already know the importance of bone health. The last thing you want to happen is a weakening of your bones. Calcium supplements alone are not enough. If you are not getting enough vitamin D, you will not absorb calcium efficiently. Our body is a complex structure relying on many nutrients to balance each other in order to do their job correctly.

Processed and junk foods tend to lower our bodies PH. In other words, turn our bodies acidic. This is called acidosis. Our bodies work best if slightly alkaline. The PH level of 7 is neutral, alkaline is above that and acid is below. We need to be slightly above seven for our body to work at its best, to be at its healthiest. So no matter what vitamins you take for your health, you will still be disadvantaged if in a state of acidosis.

‘The buffer systems functioning in blood plasma include plasma proteins, phosphate, and bicarbonate and carbonic acid buffers. The kidneys help control acid-base balance by excreting hydrogen ions and generating bicarbonate that helps maintain blood plasma pH within a normal range.’ (BCCAMPUS OPEN EDUCATION)

Our body has its own way of naturally balancing our PH by releasing calcium carbonate.

GOOD?

NO

 

Some of this calcium is leached from your bones. Not good at all, especially if you are elderly. I know, it is all so complicated. Therefore, if you are getting on in years or feel concerned about the condition of your bones, as well as taking our Moringa, we suggest a bone health supplement. For acidosis, try some alkaline foods. This is easy, as we recomend alkaline recipe books that will give you an idea of helpful foods. If you are not sure, take a bone health supplement. Remember the body does not absorb calcium efficiently if we are lacking vitamin D.

Industrialisation

In this modern age of technology, media, genetic modification, environmental pollution, toxic overload and overuse of medication, nutrition has become more important than ever.
As a result of a number of factors, including modern farming and processing techniques, long-distance transportation of foods, the growth of ‘fast foods’ and the increased use of herbicides, pesticides, additives, preservatives and other harmful synthetic chemicals in our foods, the nutrient content of the average diet has sadly declined.

At the same time, our lifestyles have become ever more fast-paced, tempting us to use fast food, And with increasing demands being placed on our time, energy levels, immunity, digestion and general health, we need good nutrition. This has led many people to wonder how they might better support their bodies, ensure healthy nutrient intake and achieve optimum nutrition in a modern context. The answer;

Why does the body need to be alkaline?

The human body functions properly when it’s slightly alkaline, partly because the blood can absorb more oxygen, a good supply of which is vital to the cells in producing energy. Alkalinity is expressed in the term pH, which is a reference to the measure of dissolved hydrogen present. The human body functions best when the pH levels are maintained in a healthy range (7.2 to 7.5) and the various systems in the body work quite hard to maintain this level of alkalinity in the blood. For example, when the pH of the blood falls to an acidic state (below 7.0 pH) the acid waste normally discarded through the body’s elimination routes starts to back up and clog the system.

To counter this, the human body produces a balancing factor of high alkalinity which is sodium bicarbonate (HCO3). Bicarbonate keeps the blood alkaline and various stomach-lining glands produce mucous that has a pH of 7.7 and contains large quantities (up to 0.5 grams a day) of sodium bicarbonate.

The PH scale

The alkaline tide

Blood leaving the stomach is relatively alkaline, rich in bicarbonates and short of chloride. This alkaline tide circulates around the body where its raised alkalinity helps to reduce any acidosis that has built up.

In 1996 Dr. Lynda Frassetto of the University of California, San Francisco, published a paper showing how bicarbonate levels in human blood vary with age. The average bicarbonate level is fairly constant until the age of 45, after which it noticeably begins to decline. (This is the age when symptoms of diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, osteoporosis and cancer start to appear.) As the bicarbonate level declines, the acidity of the bloodstream rises and it’s this major swing in the acidity of diet that dramatically shortens life.

Sugar is acidic

In the last 20 years the consumption of sugar in all its forms has skyrocketed and its consumption continues to rise. Sugar is very acid forming and in order to counter this acidic tide, the bicarbonate system, which normally balances a low sugar intake, is forced into overdrive and brought close to continual exhaustion and will fall back on leaching calcium from bones.

Cellulite

Faced with a system where it is essential to maintain a level of reasonably high alkalinity in order to be healthy, the human body adopts a fall-back mechanism. This mechanism involves shunting acidic toxins into fat which it then deposits in circulation systems outlining regions. These are regions where there is a fairly low blood circulation and virtually no mechanical squeezing. In other words, not on the joints but in those areas of the body which aren’t subjected to much mechanical movement. In this way, fat and, particularly, cellulite build up on and around the buttocks, on the thighs, on the upper arm up to the shoulder, around the waist and on the flanks. Cellulite is a symptom of this process and is particularly hard to shift if you maintain a diet of high acidity.

Nowadays, with highly processed and deoxygenated foods, sweeteners added to practically everything and a diet with little or no raw food involved, we are 30 years into an epidemic of obesity, one of the most embarrassing aspects of which is cellulite.
Even very young children are showing cellulite and this is almost entirely caused by the damaging levels of brominated and artificially sweetened soft drinks and their dependence on wheat-based products, which are stripped of almost all their vitamins during processing.
