[_] JAY-Z and BEYONCE

“Having children has changed our lives more than anything else,” they wrote. “We used to think of health as a diet – some worked for us, some didn’t. Once we looked at health as the truth, instead of a diet, it became a mission for us to share that truth and lifestyle with as many people as possible.” _ The couple share daughter Blue Ivy, 6, as well as twins Rumi and Sir Carter, 18 months.

GLYSOPHATE & HEALTH RISKS: 

FOODS WITH SULPHUR AND MANGANESE

1. SULPHUR - GLYSOPHATE: Sulphur increases cardiovascular health because it thins the blood and lowers blood cholesterol, it is essential for a healthy heart. Consuming more sulfur is important, because exposure to glyphosate depletes the body of sulfur and also has adverse effects on sulfate pathways. Inadequate sulfate in the brain can impair the ability of the body to remove harmful toxins and metals. Sulfur is also critical for the body’s detoxification process. Common vegetarian foods with sulfur are:

VEGETABLES:

  • [_] broccoli
  • [_] cauliflower
  • [_] cabbage
  • [_] brussels sprouts
  • [_] callaloo
  • [_] spinach
  • [_] asparagus
  • [_] okra
  • [_] lettuce
  • [_] sweet corn
  • [_] eggplant 

ALLIUM VEGETABLES:

  • [_] onions
  • [_] garlic
  • [_] leeks
  • [_] shallots
  • [_] chives

FRUITS:

  • [_] avocado is the fruit with the highest sulphur content, followed by
  • [_] kiwi
  • [_] bananas4
  • [_] pineapple7
  • [_] strawberries2
  • [_] melons2
  • [_] grapefruit
  • [_] grapes7
  • [_] oranges1
  • [_] peaches 

2. PROBIOTICS - GLYSOPHATE Glyphosate is a known antibiotic. It kills important living bacteria in the gut. Probiotics insulate this damage.

PROBIOTICS Natural sources of probiotics are fermented foods:

  • [_] sauerkraut
  • [_] kimchi
  • [_] kombucha
  • [_] yogurt 

3. MANGANESE – GLYSOPHATE Glysophate is a strong chelator of some mineral A mineral that binds well with Glyphosate is manganese. Studies show that Roundup can deplete manganese levels in plants and animals. Having a deficiency in manganese can cause health problems, such as:

  • [_] poor gut health,
  • [_] cognitive decline, and
  • [_] poor mitochondrial function.

FOODS RICH IN MANGANESE Manganese: Essential for bone structure, male fertility, reproductive function, PMS

  • [_] legumes6uy
  • [_] seeds6
  • [_] whole grains
  • [_] leafy green vegetables2, 6
  • [_] turmeric

Position of the American Dietetic Association: vegetarian diets.

Educating ourselves is so key. This article stresses a well planned vegetarian life-style.

"Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including:

  • [_] pregnancy,
  • [_] lactation,
  • [_] infancy,
  • [_] childhood,
  • [_] adolescence,
  • [_] athletes.

A vegetarian diet is defined as one that does not include meat (including fowl) or seafood, or products containing those foods.

This article reviews the current data related to key nutrients for vegetarians including:

MINERALS:

  • protein,
  • n-3 fatty acids,
  • iron,
  • zinc,
  • iodine,
  • calcium7

VITAMINS:

  • D,
  • B-12

A vegetarian diet can meet current recommendations for all of these nutrients. In some cases, supplements or fortified foods can provide useful amounts of important nutrients.

An evidence- based review showed that vegetarian diets can be nutritionally adequate in pregnancy and result in positive maternal and infant health outcomes.

The results of an evidence-based review showed that a vegetarian diet is associated with a lower risk of death from: ischemic heart disease.

Vegetarians appear to have lower

  • [_] low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels,
  • [_] lower blood pressure,
  • [_] Lower rates of: hypertension and
  • [_] Lower rates of type 2 diabetes than nonvegetarians.

Vegetarians tend to have:

  • [_] a lower body mass index and
  • [_] lower overall cancer rates."

CHOLESTEROL: HDL & LDL

Cholesterol comes with good and bad.

High-density lipoprotein (or HDL) cholesterol is considered “good” because it aids the absorption of cholesterol and transports it via the liver where it’s eliminated by the body. This is why high levels of HDL cholesterol helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and heart attack.

High levels of low-density lipoprotein (or LDL) cholesterol is considered “bad” as this waxy substance increases triglycerides in the blood, thus increasing the overall risk of heart disease, stroke, and heart attack.

[_] FOODS THAT HELP LOWER HBP 

[_] MUSIC LOWERING BLOOD PRESSURE

Listening to certain music with a repetitive rhythm for least ten seconds can lead to a decrease in blood pressure and a reduced heart rate.

Certain classical compositions, if matched with human body’s rhythm, can be therapeutically used to keep the heart under control.

The Oxford University study states,

“listening to music with a repeated 10-second rhythm coincided with a fall in blood pressure, reducing the heart rate” and thus can be used for overcoming hypertension.

 DOPAMINE

Listening to agreeable music encourages the production of beneficial brain chemicals, specifically the “feel good” hormone known as dopamine.

Dopamine happens to be an integral part of brain’s pleasure-enhancing system. As a result, music leads to great feeling of joy and bliss.

It’s not only listening to music that has a positive effect on stress and depression. The Namm Foundation has compiled a comprehensive list of benefits of playing music, which includes reducing stress on both the emotional level and the molecular level.

Additionally, studies have shown that adults who play music produce higher levels of Human Growth Hormone (HgH), which according to Web MD, is a necessary hormone for regulating body composition, body fluids, muscle and bone growth, sugar and fat metabolism, and possibly heart function.p>
