4 Strategies to Help Your Sugar Coated Brain

4 Strategies to Help Your Sugar Coated Brain Yum, the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies or cinnamon rolls. Tastes good, BUT the overindulgence of sugar and grains is now being linked to changes in brain health including memory loss, inability to concentrate, brain fog and senile dementia which is now being called diabetes type 3. Your diet today plays a significant role in your cognition for tomorrow. A new study has revealed the overloading of carbohydrates and sugar contributes to problems in judgment, thinking and language over time, however, protein, healthy fats and fermented vegetables were brain protective. WHAT DOES TOO MUCH SUGAR DO TO YOUR BRAIN? The consistent overload of high levels of insulin eventually cause its insulin signaling to shut down which can lead to permanent brain damage. This drop in glucose to your brain cells may lead to degeneration and cognitive impairment as your brain also produces insulin. We are now seeing how the same process leading to Type 2 Diabetes may also be consistent for your brain. Regularly eating more than 25 grams of fructose per day, will increase the risk of you developing Alzheimer’s as well as maintaining proper insulin levels. HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH PROTEIN? Rule of thumb is not to exceed one gram of protein per kilogram of lean body mass. Your lean body mass can be calculated by finding out your percent of body fat and subtracting that from 100. Then multiply that times your current weight to get your lean body mass. If you need to reduce your protein, replace the calories with healthy quality fats as...

Dark Chocolate For Valentine’s Day?

DARK CHOCOLATE FOR VALENTINE’S DAY? WANTING A SWEET TREAT? Make dark chocolate your indulgence of choice, and consider organic dark chocolate that contains at least 75% cocoa. Not only will you be solving your sweet tooth craving, but you will be providing your body with heart and brain health benefits and in turn reduce blood pressure, inflammation and increase blood flow. CHOCOLATE MAKES US FEEL GOOD! WHY? It contains over 500 natural mood-elevating chemicals with theobromine at the top of the list. It’s a molecular cousin to caffeine but without the stimulating effects to the central nervous system.  Chocolate also contains Phenylethylamine (PEA) which when eaten releases endorphins or “feel good chemicals”. That, along with serotonin, will have you feeling fine! CHOCOLATE FOR SUGAR & HEART BALANCE? Yes, dark chocolate is low on the glycemic index(the measure of a food item’s impact on one’s blood sugar level). It is loaded with antioxidants, like polyphenols and flavenols, which are plant compounds.  Studies have shown that dark chocolate and cocoa may improve blood flow and keep blood vessels healthy and improve our cells’ sensitivity to insulin and glucose.  The cocoa found in chocolate triggers the production of nitric oxide in the blood which relaxes and dilates blood vessels allowing more blood to pass through them. In addition, these flavenoids found in cocao beans, red wine, green tea and cranberries are good to keep your blood pressure under control and your LDL’s or bad cholesterol levels in check.  They help prevent free radicals from causing cell damage leading to heart disease. So, for Valentine’s Day this year… enjoy your chocolate… in moderation...

Is It All In Your Bones?

  Is It All In Your Bones? Osteoporosis is a progressive decrease in bone density, which develops when bone breaks down faster than it can be rebuilt. Women and the elderly are at a high risk. It affects 1 out of 3 women and 1 out of 5 men over the age of 50. Some bone facts Our peak bone mass is achieved by the time we are about 30.  Age related bone loss is .5-1% per year and post- menopause can advance to 1-3% per year. Small boned & low weight women are more susceptible to bone loss.  Having a diagnosis of osteoporosis does not mean active bone loss is occurring.  Therefore, there are 2 ways to find out: 1. Have 2 bone density exams from the same machine and compare correctly. 2. Have a lab work-up that includes bone markers or other tests to include parathyroid and kidneys to find out why the bone loss is occurring. Signs and Symptoms of Osteoporosis Usually symptoms are not present – Spontaneous bone fractures – Painful bones – Severe backache – Curvature of the spine  What are some of the causes of osteoporosis? Parathyroid problems Excess alcohol consumption Kidney stones/kidney disorders Food allergies Poor absorption of calcium in the gut due to decreased digestive function (i.e. decreased HCl) or pancreatic enzymes) or inadequate levels of vitamin D. HCl and vitamin D are required for calcium absorption. Hormonal imbalance (i.e. menopause) Decreased estrogen and progesterone levels; these hormones play a key role in building bone. Estrogen aids in decreasing bone loss by slowing bone break down, but doesn’t build bone. Progesterone...
