BENEFITS OF OMEGA 3 AND OMEGA 9

You’ve probably heard the terms “fatty acid” and “omega 3″ before, but do you know what a fatty acid is or why your body needs it? What about the different types of fatty acids, what foods you can naturally find them in and how much your body needs to live a long, healthy life?

Fatty acids are important for all systems of the body to function normally, including your skin, respiratory system, circulatory system, brain and organs. There are two fatty acids, termed essential fatty acids (EFA) that your body does not produce on its own. EFAs have to be ingested.

The two essential fatty acids that the human body cannot produce are the omega-3 fatty acid and omega-6 fatty acid, which are important for brain development, immune system function and blood pressure regulation.

What is Omega-3 Fatty Acid?

Omega-3 fatty acid (Alpha-linolenic acid) is an essential fatty acid that plays an important role in brain function and may aid in the prevention of cardiovascular disease [1]. The American Heart Association recommends a diet in which fatty fish, like salmon, herring, sardines and tuna are consumed at least twice a week.

While these foods are high in omega-3 fatty acid, I personally do not agree with this recommendation as fish can be contaminated and may be high in mercury, which can have detrimental health effects. Plus, I believe a raw food diet consisting of little to no meat is better for the human body.

Health Benefits of Omega-3 Fatty Acid

Research on the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acid have shown that it may be useful for supporting the following:

  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Some Cancers
  • Skin Disorders
  • High Cholesterol
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Attention Disorders
  • Depressive Disorders
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Digestive Difficulties

 

 

 

Omega-3 fatty acids are found naturally in:

  • Grains
  • Spirulina
  • Brazil Nuts
  • Hempseed Oil
  • Mustard Seeds
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Chia Seed Oil
  • Wheat Germ Oil
  • Canola Oil (Rapeseed)
  • Green Leafy Vegetables
  • Raw Walnuts & Walnut Oil
  • Flaxseeds or Flaxseed Oil

What is Omega-9 Fatty Acid?

Omega-9, or monounsaturated oleic and stearic acid, is a non essential fatty acid produced naturally by the body whenever there is enough of either Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids.

However, if you do not have enough omega 3 and omega 6, then you must get omega 9 from your diet.

This fatty acid plays a role in preventing heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels. Other benefits of omega 9 are that it reduces hardening of the arteries and improves immune function.

Omega-9 fatty acids are also found naturally in:

  • Avocados
  • Pecans
  • Cashews
  • Almonds
  • Hazelnuts
  • Pistachios
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Chia Seed Oil
  • Olives & Olive Oil

What is EPA and DHA?

Within the body omega-3 fatty acids are converted to DHA and EPA (docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid, respectively). DHA and EPA are highly unsaturated fats that play very important roles in the vision development and brain function of infants.

One study found significantly lower amounts of EPA in the cells of patients who had attempted suicide, suggesting that omega-3 fatty acids may actually play a role in suicide prevention. A lack of DHA has been associated with Alzheimer disease, attention disorders, phenylketonuria, cystic fibrosis and other diseases. Blue green algae is a good source of EPA and DHA.

Aloe Vera – The Healing Elixer

aloe-vera-625_625x350_71443086188

Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis), known as the ‘elixer of youth’ in Russia, held a legendary status in ancient times for its miraculous healing properties. Fighting deadly cancers and curing diseases from Aids to baldness to insomnia are all in a days work for this magical gift from nature.

The classical Ancient Indian healing system of Ayurveda (and other Ancient traditions), regarded Aloe Vera as sacred. To this day the leaves of the Aloe Vera plant are laid atop of funeral pyres to symbolise eternal rebirth.

Uses

The juice of the Aloe Vera plant is most beneficial when drank, but it can also be applied to just about any part of the body including the hair; doing so will produce numerous benefits. Once applied, it shares its innate natural vitamins and enzymes with the surrounding area of the body resulting in a deeply moisturising and healing effect.

 

Studies have proven that Aloe Vera can speed up the healing of wounds, improve oxygen levels in the blood and that it contains anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties as well as having a whole host of other benefits. Its clear to see why Aloe Vera has such a strong reputation as a healing plant.

Nutritional Content

Aloe Vera contains 20 amino acids which are essential for the production of muscle tissue . 8 of these cannot be produced by the body and must be found within the diet. Also provides over 7 key enzymes which enhance nutrient absorption and helps breakdown food.

Minerals within Aloe Vera include Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Sodium and Zinc. These are all essential components to good health.

Furthermore Aloe Vera contains vitamins A, C, D, E, B, B-1, B-2, Choline, B12,and Folic Acid all with their own unique benefits. This repertoire of nutritional content will aid the body with countless processes and further highlights the significant contributions Aloe Vera can make to our health.

The above scientific facts can only go so far in explaining the medicinal phenomenon of Aloe Vera as it is the synergy from the combination of all the above properties that truly gives the plant such divine healing strength.

History

Recorded use of Aloe Vera dates back to over 6,000 years ago, it was used by Ancient Civilisations all across the globe.

In ancient Japan, Samurais anointed themselves with the pulp of Aloe Vera as it was believed this would make them immortal! This may be a slight exaggeration, however you can imagine that the aloe vera-covered samurai would benefit massively upon suffering a wound in battle as the plant would begin working its wound-healing magic straight away.

n ancient Egypt Aloe Vera has been used as a healing plant where it was considered the ‘plant of immortality’. The history of this plant is truly fascinating, if you wish to read more on the history then look no further than here.

These long-gone civilisations were somewhat more advanced in harnessing Nature’s healing powers in their raw forms unlike modern medicine with its widespread and questionable methods of isolating certain properties from plants and then adding controversial fillers such as maltodextrin and other neurotoxic food additives. Common sense would ask is it not be best to leave Nature to work its magic in its natural, fresher form?

If these ancient civilisations were using Aloe Vera successfully for such a wide array of ailments why has modern day medicine not thoroughly adopted this and some of Nature’s other legendary healing plants?

Fortunately compassionate people are taking things into their own hands; I have heard of nurses from burns units of hospitals upon releasing patients, recommending the daily use of aloe vera and manuka honey in order to heal scars suffered from burns.

My Blog On Natural Detoxification : Flush Your Toxins Down the Drain

Natural-Detox-Flush-Your-Toxins-Down-the-Drain-The alarm rings, time to wake up. Your body feels heavy, tired. You wish you could sleep in a few more hours. Your body is not fully rested; it was unable to process all the toxins accumulated. It is your day that will take the toll. Lack of energy, drowsiness, bad mood – let’s talk about waking up on the wrong foot.

Overwhelmed with pollution, pesticides, antibiotics, saturated fats, sugar, stressful lifestyles and lack of exercise only to name a few, your body simply can’t cope. Day after day, your body accumulates toxins it is unable to process naturally. The more toxins it accumulates, the more its natural healing systems become clogged. That feeling tiredness slowly becomes the norm; your body forgets how alive and vibrant it used to be.


 

Detoxing for Health and Vitality

The human body was naturally designed to revitalize itself in a balanced environment. Since modern world’s addiction to producing or by-producing toxins, the body simply can’t cope. Our environment has become unbalanced, and so have our body systems. As toxic stress increases, the toxins end up lodged within the internal organs, skin, body cells, and unwanted fat. This results in many of us feeling stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression.

Unless you do something to fix this, accumulation of toxins in your body tissues can lower your vitality possibly resulting in premature ageing, degenerative diseases, and potentially aggravate any medical condition.

Detoxing is essential to restore optimum health and vitality. It can seriously enhance virtually every facet of your life. In the long run, those who take care of the equilibrium of their body should expect to live longer and healthier, encounter fewer degenerative health conditions and persistent medical problems.

As the body gets rid of toxins, the digestive system improves, nasal congestion clears, blood pressure levels stabilize, mental clarity and memory improve, and emotional and hormonal fluctuations to return to normal. Cleansing can also boost the effectiveness of any other subsequent restorative healing treatments.

The body has many natural ways to eliminate toxins. Many of us don’t like to hear about their bowel movements, but it is a great way to keep health in check. Healthy intestines naturally excrete toxins; clogged intestines recirculate them into the body. Constipation is strongly related to toxin buildup; the longer toxins stay in the bowel, the more they can be reabsorbed into the systemic circulation. Normal bowel movements should be at least once a day in the form of soft, well-formed stools. There are many small dietary changes you can make to ensure your intestines are healthy and happy.


 


 

aloe-vera-625_625x350_71443086188Detoxification with Aloe vera :

Aloe detox is a much discussed subject. Considering Aloe Vera juice for detoxification we have to remember the following important points:
• Diet

• Lifestyle

• Physical Activities (exercise, hobbies, etc)

In everyday life the human body has to detoxify the toxins that are produced in the process of living. Our modern lifestyle is a hindrance to the body in eliminating these toxins.

So the body needs some help from the “outside”. The body has its basic method in detoxifying.

I will explain how Aloe Vera can help this basic process by applying the Aloe detox method.

When the valuable properties are viewed, the Aloe Vera plant can be used for many different problems that relate to deficiency and the need of stimulation. We want to maintain:

• good health,

• feeling better

• and the feeling of total well-being.

The internal cleansing is the number one key to stay healthy. In this process Aloe Vera juice for detoxification is a powerful assistant.
Nearly all the ailments begin in the digestive tract. When long lasting good health is to be achieved, efforts have to be made in correcting all nutritional deficiencies that are caused by poor absorption of the food.

Clinical research and numerous of test have shown that the toxicity level in the blood plasmas is a real problem and not just an idea. The auto-toxicity levels have been proved to be at their highest level in the forenoon. The body is in full action of detoxification in the morning, but if a regular breakfast is eaten the cleansing process is immediately stopped.

So the great importance is the type of breakfast that is consumed. Adding 50 ml of Aloe Vera Juice to your fruit breakfast with no sugar added is a good start for the Aloe Vera detoxification method.

Eating right before going to bed is overloading the body. But everyone has heard the old saying; “in the morning, eat like a king, at noon, eat like a nobleman, and in the evening, eat like a pauper”.The body needs rest…

…and to rest from food “Internal cleansing is physical healing and maintenance”.

The intestine is the number one, largest organ in the immune system. When efforts are made in continually strengthening and build this vital organ, a lot of problems will automatically be taken care of.

Problems like yeast overgrowth, parasites, viruses and lactates can be depressed and detoxified by the usage of Aloe Vera.

This process in the body is a powerful therapeutic potential in healing. With an Aloe detox the body heals and maintains good health.

The Aloe gel is full of fibers which also helps in detoxifying process in a research there is finding that 90 % of the people are having toxic colon and are carrying 2 to 3 kg of toxic waste in the colon and having these toxic colon leads to various diseases including cancer.

 

 

 

Health is wealth

Health is “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity,” according to the Constitution of the World Health Organisation (WHO). WHO makes the following five recommen­dations with respect to both popula­tions and individuals:

Eat roughly the same amount of calories that your body is using. A healthy weight is a balance between energy consumed and energy that is burnt off.
Increase consumption of plant foods, particularly fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains and nuts.
Limit intake of fats, and prefer less unhealthy unsaturated fats to saturated fats and transfats.
Limit the intake of sugar. A 2003 report recommends less than 10 per cent simple sugars.
Limit salt / sodium consumption from all sources and ensure that salt is iodised.

Essential nutrition, adequate proteins, fluid, minerals, fatty acids, vitamins, and essential calories are required for a healthy body. Healthy body is obtained and maintained by healthy diet. A healthy diet is that which has balanced energy providing nutrients. Besides this, intake of proper amount of nutritious diet-neither less nor excessive and exercise – these are the key features of perfect Health.

One important substance for healthy body is antioxidants. They are compound or molecules , that prohibit the oxidation of other molecules in the body and thus prevent the cell damage. Oxidation is a chemical process , caused by too much oxygen in our tissues. It takes electrons from a substance to an oxidising agent. This transferring process produces free radicals in our body. As a result, these free radicals multiply, when this free radical produces another free radical in a cell, it damages the cell. This damage in our body is countered by antioxidants by stopping radical’s chain reaction. In other words, antioxidants counteract free radicals’ damaging effects. So, antioxidants are the fighters of anti-health elements in our body.

Antioxidants – such as vitamin C, vitamin E and carotenoids, which include beta-carotene, lycopene and lutein – help protect healthy cells from damage. We need to know about the functioning and sources of vitamins C, E and carotenoids.
