[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.

Training Supplements ] Alfalfa – 7 Amazing Benefits of Alfalfa Leaf By Sean N Burrows

 Ruunner1's Training Supplements post of the day:

 

 

Alfalfa is an amazing plant with many health benefits. Many cultures, mainly in Asia, have long used this plant as an appetite stimulator, as well as a healing digestive remedy for alleviating ulcers.

India has used alfalfa leaf for many purposes such as ulcers, water retention, and arthritic pain. Colonial Americans used the plant to ward-off cancer, scurvy, menstrual difficulties, arthritis, as well as urinary problems. It has also been traditionally used to effectively combat a variety of infections.

Alfalfa Leaf is packed with many essential vitamins including all the B-vitamins, Vitamin A, D, E and K. Vitamin K plays a big role in the function of blood clotting. In addition to being loaded with vitamins, alfalfa also contains many minerals like iron, niacin, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium.

Alfalfa also has very high amounts of protein when compared to other plant sources.

Here are 7 Benefits of this awesome plant.

1- Improves Pituitary Gland
2- Immune System Support
3- Stabilizes Blood Sugar
4- Aids in Food Digestion and Assimilation
5- Lowers Cholesterol
6- Reduces migraine headaches
7- Blood and Liver purifier of chemicals and heavy metals
8- Helps urinary tract, and urinary tract infections
9- High Levels of Vitamin K
10- Makes the body more Alkaline

There are many other amazing health benefits of Alfalfa Leaf, but these are the most important. Like all detoxification herbs, alfalfa may have minor side effects when taken in the beginning. These minor effects are the result of your body detoxing and cleansing itself and are short-lived. Always consult your health care provider before using this, or any other herb, if you're pregnant or if you're taking any other medications.

The Liver

A lot of my studies have been on the liver, and just how important they are to our bodies and good health. Our livers are responsible for so much that we absolutely must become more aware of how to keep it healthy. Our livers break down all our foods, cleanses the toxins in our bodies, processes all of our sensory input, and is our heat-furnace. It's the only organ in the body that can regenerate.

Our livers are extremely abused in our society, and Alfalfa Leaf can play an important role in helping to heal our livers.

Bonus Tip!

The best way to take, and receive, the awesome benefits of Alfalfa is in powder form in conjunction with other healing herbs. You can find high amounts in a quality, green super food powder to detox and heal the body.

Superfoods - Anti-Aging Miracle Eating to Keep Young

Antonio's Comments on Training Supplements: I like this video because it gives a really good outline of a great diet, But as a Athlete, we often need double the intake of nutrition, and what we sometimes eat has been depleted of its nutrition from all the processed production. I do like to have a yogurt a day :)
