There is much controversy around foods, but what is the truth? Even if you "like" spinach (spinach), tomatoes and tea, they may still have some problems, so let's explore it ...
One thing I have come to the conclusion after many years of research on nutrition is Even if something is called "good for you" it is sometimes not the best for you to eat it too much every day.
In today's article, we will look at a few foods that "dominate" the world of nutrition like spinach, tomatoes and tea, and the reason why sometimes eating them too much may not be good for you. . And we will also look at things that the media are "bad for you" like beer, coffee, cheese and butter, and why they can be really good in many cases.
Begin With "Toxic" Alcohol ...
It seems that even some substances are claimed by scientists as "poison" in some cases it is still very useful if you only use a small amount . Alcohol is an example. Any scientist considers it a poison (causing intoxication), but research has shown that drinking a moderate amount of alcohol will help us live longer than not drinking alcohol or heavy alcoholism. . This is an interesting fact ... just a small amount of something considered "poison" can help you live longer than you do not use it, but if you use too much then of course, it will kill you.
There are very difficult polymerization factors to explain in the study of mixed groups or surveys of people's drinking habits, and there is rarely a study to see if the drinker is really good. more than people who only drink alcohol or light beer or not. Each wine or light beer has its own unique antioxidant, which is often lost in spirits. Is it right or wrong to increase the longevity of drinking an adequate amount of antioxidants in wine and beer?
A recent study I read shows 1-2 glasses of red wine a day helps to increase the beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract and reduce harmful bacteria (In addition to the benefits of blood pressure, triglyceride, LDL, and C-reactive protein), but for some reason, alcohol (tested Gin) does not have any similar benefits. It can be concluded that polyphenols and resveratrol (a very high biologically active substance, which contains many natural phenols, are able to prevent the oxidation of fatty proteins) in wines that help preparations. Intestinal biology products grow well and can also improve blood chemistry. And as you know, the good bacteria in the abdomen have great benefits for your digestive system and immune system.
It can be said that Bia is a "favorite" dish of our Vietnamese men. Brothers often gather with friends on weekends and often drink a lot of beer. I used to be like that, but now, every week I just enjoy a beer, of course I always choose good quality beers.
A good dark beer is because it has a much lower amount of oxidants and B group vitamins than light beers if they are available in many other brands. On the other hand, too much beer containing estrogen compounds from hops will have health consequences if it is abused for both men and women.
Again, moderation seems to be always the best. A few beers a week may have benefits, but if you drink 6 or more cups, it is the shortest path to making you suffer from dangerous diseases.
What harm can beer have when it is brewed with barley or wheat? Did you know, Paleo diets try to avoid cereals because of some problematic ingredients of many grains.
Yes, there is a personal truth that I try to avoid most cereals because my digestive system is having problems with antinutrients and gluten. This problem is less common with beer, because Beer is fermented. Any time you make something fermented, the microorganisms will participate in the fermentation process effectively making the toxins more neutral and easier to digest.
This is why fermented soybeans may be somewhat good for your health and unfermented soybeans are a terrible thing for you. This is also the reason why sour bread (since it is fermented) is less harmful to you than regular bread. This is also the reason why fermented milk such as kefir mushroom milk and yogurt are better for digestion than normal dairy, and it has more beneficial effects than other types of milk.
Many early nutritionists, nutritionists, journalists who do not understand biochemical nutrition actually talk about fat in cheese. They said that "cheese is fattening" or "always choose low-fat or non-fat cheese". If you read my article here, you will see why The fats contained in cheese of grass-fed dairy cows can help you burn fat and may even prevent heart disease. I know that sounds crazy, but you can't ignore the fact that fats in grass-fed dairy cows contain powerful nutrients like vitamin K2, which have been shown to prevent artery calcification, As well as healthy fats like CLA are shown to help burn fat, build muscle, and fight cancer.
Next fat, grass-fed cow's milk cheese also contains casein (milk protein) that is very beneficial for your digestive system. . Yes, it is true that there are still people who have difficulty digesting casein in some dairy products. But keep in mind that fermented dairy products such as kefir mushroom milk, yogurt, and cheese are generally the most digestible because they have been "pre-digested" by bacteria during fermentation. Therefore, most people have no problem digesting the fermentation forms of milk. And the mushroom milk (kefir) of the best brands is 99% free of lactose because the bacteria consume and digest lactose during fermentation.
When it comes to Cheese, it is worth mentioning The best cheeses are good quality cheeses . A longtime cheese will really have to undergo many fermentation processes from different forms of bacteria and it will be most digestible because the digestion process has been done before by a lot of good bacteria, As each stage in the process of longing will help break down milk components into more digestible forms.
Whatever you do, avoid the cheap cheeses like American cheese, the spread of salty cheese, "cheese" ... in general, they are unhealthy.
What Does Spinach Have?
Everyone knows that spinach is great for us, right? In general, spinach is rich in antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals, all great for our bodies.
However, Spinach and dark green leafy vegetables that contain a high amount of oxalic acid are known to cause kidney stones or kidney failure if you eat too much or for too long. A lot of information indicates that for most people, eating a large amount of spinach and eating long-term will actually see negative effects, so this seems to be an example of moderation. Probably the best.
A small amount of lettuce mixture at each dinner is probably beneficial to our health, but a large amount of green vegetables 2 or 3 times a day is probably too much and can cause problems with produces large amounts of oxalic acid.
Nightshades In Vegetables
Nocturnal nightshade - a kind of organism (alkaloid) with a glucoside texture. This substance is mainly found in eggplant, tomato, potato and chili. There are also some species of wild plants that have high toxicity nightshades if you eat them in the forest.
Tomatoes and peppers have lycopene (which helps with strong antioxidants). Eggplant shells have strong antioxidants, and they are now being studied to help fight cancer. Potatoes are combined with valuable minerals and are used to eat at a moderate level which is great for those who practice a lot to provide anaerobic fuel (included in weightlifting and jogging exercises). Short cups ...) High-intensity training and supplementing glycogen into muscles. So you can see, Although vegetables have benefits, they can also have a small amount of toxins that can cause problems for you if used too often.
Again, I would say it would be more beneficial to eat tomatoes, peppers and potatoes 2 to 3 times a week to absorb antioxidants, vitamins and minerals well, but if you are too much in a meal and too often for a long time is very problematic. So, please pay attention to eating properly and properly.
What Is Unstable With Tea?
We all know that different teas include white, blue, black, oolong tea, red, and herbal teas that have powerful antioxidants and can help protect us from degenerative diseases. like cancer and heart disease. And we also know that some plant chemicals in teas can even slightly increase fat loss, although I think that effect is quite small.
However, I have seen a recent report that said Non-organic tea derived from China has been found to have very dangerous high levels of alarming pesticides (both in fresh tea and dried tea), And obviously, many well-known brands do not check this pesticide residue. And so, the more risk of cancer we face, the more often we use these teas.
The main lesson I have when reading these reports is simply that I will try harder to do it Choose organic tea brands and avoid overuse of tea usage Just a tea from now on.
I also like to drink chamomile tea or peppermint teas before going to bed for 1 to 2 hours to help relax and cause drowsiness. You can also choose your favorite teas and drink them moderately, but remember to choose organic ones.
For some reason most people think that coffee is not good. But If you avoid giving fake sugar and cream (using real ice cream and stevia sugar instead), then it is really a pretty good drink with the antioxidant, phenol, chlorogenic, and other benefits. Other healthy compounds in coffee.
Many studies over the years have shown that consumption of coffee reduces the risk of different types of cancer. In fact, a 2011 study by Harvard University found that people who drank 1-3 cups of coffee a day reduced their risk of prostate cancer by 30%. Other studies have shown that the use of coffee reduces the risk of diabetes.
I like it myself A cup of coffee is really delicious every day - of course with ice cream made from grass-fed milk. In general, no matter what products you choose to increase the flavor of your daily cup of coffee, remember to choose products that are naturally, organic and as clean as possible.
Again coming back to the topic of moderation, if you drink too much coffee, your body may suffer from the damage caused by overloading your caffeine. And the adrenal glands will work poorly and are caused by too much caffeine for a long time. But If you drink a small amount of coffee each day you will benefit from the only antioxidants found in organic coffee beans. So, when choosing coffee, try to choose the types of coffee derived from organic grown coffee with the lowest ratio of after-medicine, it will be very safe and beneficial for your health. .
Summary, I think the most important thing you get from this article is that many foods and drinks have some harmful compounds and some beneficial compounds. If you use a variety of good foods in your diet, and do not eat a lot of bad foods or drinks, then you will not only get great meals, but you will also get a health cannot be more satisfactory. But sometimes some healthy foods can also have their problems if you use too much and don't regulate.
