Nutrient Quality PT-1

Nutrient Quality PT-1

That’s an offal amount of meat! B-vitamins & Iron.

You need iron to make 5-HTP the precursor for serotonin.

80-90% of serotonin is manufactured in the gut & around 70% of our immune system is located in the GI tract. So iron deficiency, GI distress, & immune activation could be an underlying cause of depression”. Eat your red meat, people.
Did you know, 1 in 6 Americans have diagnosed depression & there are more prescriptions written for SSRIs in the US than people to take them.

Also invest in quality meat. There was a headline about a toppled semi not too long ago- It was full of Skittles (yes, the candy) that were headed to feed cows. If you want to eat Skittle cows, totally up to you, but probably better to stick with (healthy) grass-fed cows. There is a huge difference in the price and quality of meats.. grass fed, free range, pasture finished, grain fed, grain finished, corn fed, soy finished. Did you know grain fed cows have a higher Oestrogen profile in the meat!?

How good is steak, seriously? But usually we’re lazyAF & just buy mince because it’s quick & easy. Or chicken because we ‘think’ it’s healthier!
Chicken actually has a much higher Omega6:Omega3 fatty acid ratio? I’m not saying chicken is bad but, yes too much Omega6 can be bad.
Mix it up, eat a variety, eat all the colours of the rainbow....
And every now and then swap that chicken breast fillet for a steak!

Do you even eat offal meat?

Changing the game (Game changers review)
Changing the game (Game changers review)

December 15, 2019

The game changes is a documentary on Netflix promoting a vegan diet for better health and performance. In this article I will attempt to break down and compare some of the misconceptions made in the film. Confirmation bias is a term used when people seek out information and studies to back up their claims, we have all been guilty of this at times.
The game changers is jam packed (excuse the pun) with celebrities promoting their choice of diet and pseudoscience to back up said claims which makes it harder for people without a science background to challenge the claims that have been made in the film.

Roman gladiators ate a vegan diet
Gladiators were slaves owned by Roman aristocrats for entertainment purposes. The life expectancy of a gladiator was approximately two years once becoming a slave. It has been said gladiators were fed a diet full of grains and legumes to not only pack on body fat which offered some protection from cuts and wounds in the arena but was also a cheaper source of calories to feed the slave labour.

Electrolytes & muscle cramping

Quick tips
1) correcting your posture can do wonders to prevent putting muscles under strain and increasing blood flow.
2) cold showers and hot baths can help to increase blood flow into the muscles.
3) Breathing techniques; rapid breathing (hyperventilation) can cause an imbalance in carbon dioxide in the blood, meaning proteins attach themselves to calcium ions making them unavailable to the muscles.
4) Progressive relaxation; tensing and relaxing various muscle groups can help to prevent muscle spasms after a few sets of toning and relaxing.
