7 Non-Dairy Alternatives

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Health Foods at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

There are plenty of non-dairy products available in the market today but despite having the same purpose, substituting milk products, these dairy-free options are all very different. Some options contain more protein, some are low-calories, and some are low-calcium. Everyone should find a best option based on their needs. So, we let you make the call and present you 7 Non-Dairy alternatives.

1. Soy

Soy milk is one of the most popular non-dairy options due to its smooth taste. A low calorie, low sugar, high protein and high calcium option, soy is nutritionally similar to traditional milk and is considered an easy to use, perfect replacement.

2. Coconut

Low calorie, low protein, and low calcium, coconut milk is a sweet, smooth alternative for people who are lactose intolerant of allergic to animal milk. However, coconut milk is not a nutrient rich source as a replacement due to its low protein and calcium content. Coconut milk is rich in lauric acid which contains anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.

3. Oats

A cholesterol and lactose free option, oat mil contains high levels of vitamin E and folic acid. Oat milk is high in sugar and does not have the same calcium and protein content of cow’s milk but it is a great source of phytochemicals which may help fight diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and stroke.

4. Rice

A sweet dairy-free alternative, rice milk is extremely nutritious but unfortunately not a great source of calcium and protein. However, rice milk is one of the mildest non-dairy alternatives and considered the most hypoallergenic of all the milk substitutes.

5. Almond

Considered by many as the most delicious replacement for regular milk (even though it doesn’t taste like cow’s milk), almond milk is a low calorie, low protein option which contains similar amount of calcium as traditional milk. Almond milk is also a good source of magnesium, manganese, selenium and Vitamin E.

6. Hemp

Another cholesterol and lactose free option, hemp milk is low in saturated fats and rich in healthy omega fatty acids. It’s also an excellent source of protein and tastes creamier and nuttier than soya milk or rice milk but like other plant milks though, it lacks calcium.

7. Cashew

Not a very popular choice, cashew nut milk is a great source of copper and other minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Compared to other nuts, cashews have a lower overall fat content but its milk is not a great option for people on weight-loss diets.

5 Health Benefits of Quinoa

Filed Under: Health Foods,Nutrition,Supplements at 5:30 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Quinoa offers a variety of health benefits as this popular superfood is incredibly nutritious. Technically a seed, quinoa can be served with brown sugar and fruit as a hot breakfast cereal, or added to soups or salads. If you are looking for a good reason to add this gluten-free food to your diet, we present you 5 health benefits of quinoa.

1. Protein

One of the best vegetarian sources of protein, quinoa contains more than 8 grams of protein per cup including all nine essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own. These essential amino acids are needed for tissue growth and repair and quinoa has all of them, plus more and better protein than most grains.

2. Minerals

Quinoa is high in minerals particularly four important ones that people often do not get enough from their diet: magnesium, iron, zinc, and potassium. However, quinoa contains phytic acid that can partly prevent minerals from being absorbed but soaking or sprouting quinoa degrades most of the phytic acid.

3. Fiber

Quinoa contains almost twice as much fiber as most other grains and can be an excellent supplement to relieve constipation as well as prevent heart disease by reducing high blood pressure and diabetes. Fiber lowers cholesterol and glucose levels and may help you lose weight, as it takes a longer time to chew than does other foods, making you feel fuller for longer. It is also less energy dense, which means it has fewer calories for the same volume of food.

4. Quercetin

Quinoa also contains very large amounts of quercetin, an important flavonoids that has been shown to have all sorts of beneficial effects on health. In fact, the quercetin content of quinoa is even higher than typical high-quercetin foods like cranberries. These important molecules have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-cancer, and anti-depressant effects.

5. Antioxidants

Another reason to add quinoa to your diet: antioxidants. These substances help neutralize free radicals and are believed to help fight aging as well as a variety of diseases. Quinoa has one of the highest antioxidant content among grains and cereals, and if you allow its seeds to sprout, the amount of antioxidants increase ever further.

4 Foods for Healthy Hair

Filed Under: Beauty,Health Foods,Supplements at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

If you are looking to start a healthy-hair diet, finding the right foods should not be a problem. A number of foods may provide great benefits for your hair but we picked 4 great foods to be added to your diet for healthy hair.

1. Eggs

Eggs are a great food to help with hair growth as they are an excellent source of biotin, a vitamin B that significantly helps hair grown. Lack of biotin can lead to hair loss. Eggs are also a good source of protein and iron, two important nutrients to maintain healthy hair.

2. Salmon

Just like many fish options, salmon provides healthy omega-3 fatty acids, an essential nutrient for healthy hair. Sardines, mackerel, and other fish sources can help increase your omega-3 fatty acids intake. Since your body is unable to produce these healthy fats, you need to get them from food or supplements.

3. Walnuts

Walnuts, as well as many other nuts, are rich in nutrition that is good for your hair. For example, most nuts contain biotin and other B vitamins, which helps strengthen hair, reduce hair fall, and improve hair growth. Peanuts, cashews, and almonds are also suggested as good hair-food in case you don’t like walnuts.

4. Carrots

Carrots contain beta-carotene which is converted to vitamin A, an essential nutrient. It has antioxidant activity, which helps protect cells from damage as well as help cell growth, including hair cells. Consumption of beta carotene can help you get rid of various hair problems such as preventing dry, lifeless hair and dry scalp which can flake off into dandruff, promoting hair growth, and minimizing hair thinning.

The Truth about Saturated Fats (Specifically How Good Coconut Oil Is…)

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Health Foods,Superfoods,Supplements at 1:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

The words “Saturated Fats” may scare many people due to its “bad reputation” but did you know that not all saturated fats are actually bad for you?

In fact, some saturated fats, such as the ones found in coconut oil, are good for your health! It may be surprising to you that the naturally occurring saturated fat in coconut oil actually has health benefits but studies have shown that it can help promoting heart health and weight loss, supporting the immune system, boosting up metabolism, and maintaining proper function of the thyroid gland.

About 50 percent of the fat content in coconut oil is a fat rarely found in nature called lauric acid that the body converts into monolaurin, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-protozoa properties.

On the other hand, it is important to remember that unsaturated fats are the ones known to cause heart disease, not the naturally occurring coconut oil saturated fats. Polyunsaturated fats in vegetable and seed oils encourage the formation of blood clots by increasing platelet stickiness, unlike that, coconut oil helps to promote normal platelet function.

For cooking purposes, coconut oil is a much healthier choice and should be used instead of butter, olive oil, vegetable oil, margarine, or any other oil. Pure virgin coconut oil contains 92% saturated fats, and only 1% Omega-6, the fat Americans get way too much of, and best of all, does not contain any cholesterol.

Additionally, anything with the words “trans fats” should be the ones to be avoided at all times as these unsaturated fats are artificially manipulated into saturated fats and have been associated with a variety of health dangers.

5 Foods to Help Combat Allergies

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Health Foods,Nutrition at 2:05 pm | By: Jeremy Michael

 

A proper diet and nutrition is the foundation for all health care. However, food can be more than a foundation; food is medicine.  Today we are going to talk about foods that can help combat seasonal allergies. Foods rich in Vitamin C, Antioxidants, and Folic acid can help to reduce the inflammation associated with seasonal allergies. Below are some super foods to add into your springtime regimen to help fight off those unwanted seasonal allergy changes. While proper diet and nutrition is important, it is also important to make sure you avoid any food allergies or sensitivities that you may have.

  • Cruciferous Vegetables – Not only do cruciferous vegetables like Kale and Broccoli aid in the detoxification pathway, but research from the University of California School of Medicine found that cruciferous vegetables can play a key role in preventing allergy symptoms and asthma. Researchers found, Sulforaphane, a chemical in broccoli, triggers an increase of antioxidant enzymes in the human airway that offers protection against the numerous free radicals that we inhale every day in our polluted air. Not to mention foods like broccoli and kale are also high in Vitamin C a natural antihistamine.
  • Apples – In addition to Vitamin C apples also contain high amounts of quercetin. Apples supply roughly 4 milligrams of quercetin for every 100 grams. Quercetin is one of the most important alternative remedies when it comes to allergies because of its ability to stabilize mast cells, which release histamine. When it comes to purchasing your apples, make sure they are organic, as apples are the #1 Food on the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen.
  • Onions and Garlic like apples are full of quercetin. Quercetin, as mentioned above works similar to many of the prescription drugs on the market today by acting like an anti-histamine. Onions contain roughly 100 milligrams of quercetin per 3-1/2 ounces. Onions and garlic also help to regulate and boost our immune system, which helps to fight off those pesky allergies.
  • Citrus Fruits – Fruits like oranges, grapefruit, lemons and limes contain large doses of Vitamin C. One large orange contains roughly 100mg of Vitamin C. On top of being packed with Vitamin C lemons and other citrus fruits also contain high levels of antioxidants.
  • Fresh Fish – Fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, anchovies & sardines are high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Omega 3 Fatty Acids help combat the inflammation associated with seasonal allergies. A German study that was published in the journal of Allergy, found that peoples whose diets were rich in omega-3 fatty acids were less likely to suffer allergy symptoms.
