[Training Supplements] Health Benefits of Asparagus Juice By Martin Shipovnik

 

Ruunner1's Training Supplements post of the day:

 

Asparagus juice can be very stimulating when there is a long and strenuous mental work ahead of us. Due to the high content of folic acid, asparagus is the perfect food for pregnant women or women who are planning to expand their family. Folic acid helps before and during pregnancy, and prevents major birth defects.

Asparagus Ingredients

Asparagus is an excellent source of vitamin C, B2 and B6. Those are the vitamins that beneficially affect the general health of the body, and aid the normal heart function. Apart from the micro nutrients, 100 grams of fresh asparagus contains 20 calories, 2.20 grams of protein, 3.88 grams of carbohydrate, 0.12 grams of fat, 2.10 grams of cellulose and 93.22 grams of water.

Asparagus improves digestion and helps with constipation. It is considered to be a natural diuretic, as well as a means to relieve PMS, arthritis, high blood pressure and weak capillaries. It contains one of the most powerful antioxidants - glutathione (GSH). GSH is a very potent anti-carcinogen that protects the skin from malignancy.

In old China, some 3000 years ago, asparagus was used as medicine against coughs and ulcers. It was also used to alleviate pain and swelling in the legs. In France, asparagus was applied as a tool for breaking up kidney stones. It has long been known to possess strong aphrodisiac properties.

The Alkaloid Asparagine

As we have seen, asparagus contains a number of beneficial ingredients, but one of them - asparagine - is found in relatively high concentrations. Asparagine belongs to the group of chemical compounds called alkaloids. Alkaloids are metabolic products of many living organisms, but they are mostly abundant in the plants. The majority of them are alkaline and contain nitrogen atoms.

Asparagine is a non essential amino acid (protein). However, it is established that the nervous system requires it for proper functioning. If not taken directly, our body is capable of synthesizing asparagine on its own. Even though it need not be present in the diet, it is desirable to get it along with the other vital nutrients from the asparagus juice. If asparagus is not taken as raw ingredient, the nutritive value of asparagine is lost. This means that the only way to ensure maximum health benefit is to prepare asparagus juice.

Health Benefits of Asparagus Juice

If prepared as juice, asparagus can be very useful as a diuretic. It should be combined with some carrot juice - otherwise it is unusually strong and could have an sudden impact on the functioning of the kidneys.

When consumed moderately and gradually it can help with some kidney dysfunctions. The positive effect are due to the impact of the nutritive components of asparagus juice on the breaking up of the oxalic stones in the kidneys and muscular system.

It is also very good in regulating problems with the glandular system, (prostate gland) and rheumatism. Consuming large quantities of meat and various meat products can lead to generating excessive metabolic products such as urea. These, in turn, can be the root cause of rheumatism and similar dysfunctions. It also puts a burden on and affects the normal function of the excretion organs.

It is recommended that anemic persons and convalescents take a lot of asparagus juice. Some people use asparagus as juice in order to ease diabetes, but in these cases it should be used in conjunction with other more specific healthy drinks.

Asparagus juice is an excellent drink. However, due to its potency, one should consider mixing it with other types of healthy juices, such as carrot juice, carrot juice mixes, or beet juice.

Apples are one of the most widely cultivated tree fruits. The commercially popular variety is crisp, soft and has a very colorful skin. Apples are consumed as a raw fruit or as apple juice mostly but are also used as an ingredient in desserts and candy. Apple pies are one of the favorite, yummy desserts most of us love to eat.

"An apple a day, keeps the doctor away". A proverb reflecting the health benefits of this great fruit. Apples are known for their ability to reduce the risk of several cancer types including colon cancer, lung and prostate cancer. The high amount of dietary fiber present in apples are responsible mostly in reducing the risk of colon cancer which can even cause death if not treated properly at early stages.

[Training Supplements]Benefits of Vitamin E (Tocopherol) By Jean Helmet

Ruunner1's Training Supplements post of the day:

Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a fat-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant, destroying free radicals that damage the cells and impair the immune system. It also prevents ultraviolet rays from damaging the cell structure, which is why most skin care products contain vitamin E. Studies also show potential benefits against bladder and prostate cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's disease.

Common sources of vitamin E (tocopherol) include green leafy vegetables, fish, nuts, wheat germ, whole grains, and various vegetable oils. Vitamin E supplements are also available in pill or liquid form, but patients should consult their doctors before taking them. Here are some tips on using vitamin E (tocopherol) supplements.

1. Recommended dietary allowance (RDA)

The RDA for vitamin varies with age, sex, and overall health as dictated by the patient's diet and lifestyle. The US National Academy of Sciences (NAS) set the following RDAs in 2000:

6 mg for ages one to three

7 mg for ages four to eight

11 mg for ages nine to 13

15 mg for ages 14 and up, and pregnant females aged 18 and up

19 mg for lactating females aged 18 and up

2. Overdose

Vitamin E has remarkably low toxicity, so overdoses seldom occur from food sources alone. However, over 3000 IU from vitamin E (tocopherol) supplements can cause vitamin E toxicity. Symptoms include diarrhea, intestinal cramps, double vision, fatigue, and muscle weakness. Also, vitamin E intake simultaneously depletes vitamin K, which can result in clotting problems. To prevent vitamin K deficiency, the NAS recommends an upper limit of 1000 IU daily.

3. Drug and nutrient interactions

Vitamin E has to be taken with vitamin C, vitamin B3, selenium, and glutathione to keep it in its active form, alpha-tocopherol. Since vitamin E is actually a group of nutrients, it is best to get supplements that combine its usable forms instead of just one form. Food sources provide a more balanced mix than supplements. Also, vitamin E (tocopherol) can react negatively with some chemicals, so inform your doctor if you are taking any medications.

IMPORTANT: Some vitamin E (tocopherol) supplements contain additives that not only inhibit its effects, but may even be harmful to your health. To stay safe, make sure your supplements are GMP-compliant. This ensures that the product meets strict safety and quality standards and do not contain such chemicals. Also, avoid products that contain artifical additives, such as food colors and flavorings.

The product we personally use called Total Balance - http://www.health-product-we-use.com is the most natural and effective supplement we have come across. We have been using this product for over 3 years with excellent health results.
