Today we are going to talk about 6 ingredients to avoid when shopping for vitamins or supplements. These ingredients can cause bloating, block nutrient uptake, harm the gut lining, and they are very unsustainable for our planet. Some examples include maltodextrin, citric acid, artificial dyes, colors, dyes, and flavors which are linked to a plethora of cognitive/digestive disorders. 

  • Maltodextrin is primarily derived from genetically modified corn and has been shown to cause bloating, alter the gut lining, and brain fog. [1] [3]
  • Potassium Sorbate is a preservative used to prevent mold growth in foods such as cheese, yogurt, wine, dried meat, pickles, apple cider, and many herbal dietary supplements. Potassium Sorbate may cause damage to the lymphocytes. [2]
  • Soy Lecithin has been shown to impact digestion and reduce the absorption of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc and may equally cause stunted growth in children. [5][6][7]
  • Citric acid During the 1970s citric acid was derived from fruits such as lemons and limes. But around the 1970s citric acid became derived from GMO mold & GMO corn syrup. The mold (Aspergillosis) [12] can cause inflammation [13], bloating, nausea, and other allergic reactions [14]
  • Artificial colors Artificial colors such as yellow 5 have been linked to behavior disorders[9], damage the DNA and causes cell mutation [10] and cellular damage [11] [19]
  • Artificial or Natural flavors At the moment there are about 1,300 different chemicals approved for flavoring agents and due to the current regulations companies do not need to disclose the chemicals used in a flavoring agent. These flavoring agents can be made up of just about anything including pig bones, msg, and other chemicals which may lead to health issues and alterations in dopamine [14] [15] [16]

When it comes to cooking oil, organic and non gmo are a priority! ☺

The best 3 oils to cook with:

1) Coconut Oil assists in weight loss, the brain, and benefits cholesterol.

2) Olive oil assists with heart healing properties, lowering blood pressure, and stubborn fat cells.

3) Avocado oil assists with nutrient absorption, balances blood pressure, and improves arthritis

The worst 3 oils to cook with:

1) Canola oil is a process oiled derived from GMO rapeseed. Primarily refined using hexane which is a chemical used in gasoline. Linked to increasing trans fat levels and destroys the myelin sheath in the brain leading to neurological disorders. 97% Genetically modified.

2) Corn oil is derived from Monsanto’s GMO corn. This crop is heavily treated with roundup and other pesticides which are toxic to the entire body. Being high in Omega-6 this oil is linked to inflammation, cancer, and obesity. 98% Genetically modified.

3) Soybean oil is created from GMO soybean. This crop is linked to a plethora of issues. To start Soy mimics estrogen in the human body so it upsets the entire hormonal balance in both males and females. It also is very high in omega 6’s and linked to obesity, fatty liver, inflammation, heart damage, asthma, and immune system impairment. 90% genetically modified.

With the information above it is good to know the difference in the oils you use to cook or at a restaurant you plan to attend. You can always ask in advance what oil they prepare their food in. For health and longevity stick to coconut, olive, or avocado oil. These 3 benefit the body in many ways, keep the immune system strong, and have been used for centuries. 👏

Margerine…The Truth Is Out!

This is interesting . .. .

Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back.
It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow coloring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavorings….

DO YOU KNOW.. The difference between margarine and butter?

Read on to the end…gets very interesting!

Both have the same amount of calories.

Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine.

?Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.

Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and only because they are added!

Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods.

Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years .

And now, for Margarine..

?Very High in Trans fatty acids.

?Triples risk of coronary heart disease …

?Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)

?Increases the risk of cancers up to five times..

?Lowers quality of breast milk

?Decreases immune response.

?Decreases insulin response.

And here’s the most disturbing fact… HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!

?Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE  away from being PLASTIC… and  shares 27 ingredients with PAINT.

These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).

Open a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things:

* no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)

* it does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow.

 Why? Because it is nearly plastic . Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

Share This With Your Friends…..(If you want to butter them up’)!

Chinese Proverb:
When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.
