Fat-Burning Foods

Filed Under: Diet & Weight Loss,Health Foods at 5:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Everyone should know that exercising regularly and a well-balanced diet are essential to a successful weight-loss diet, but did you know that some foods may actually help you with the fat burning factor?

That’s right. Some foods have the ability to speed up your metabolism and, therefore, boost the body’s ability to burn fat. For example, studies have shown that apples, particularly green, Granny Smith apples, are one of these fat-burning foods. Apples are high in pectin, which binds with water and limits the amount of fat your cells can absorb. Also high in fiber, apples may make you feel full reducing the amount of food you eat. Eating an apple before a meal may help reducing the total calories of the meal. Moreover, recent research suggests that the antioxidants in apples appear to prevent metabolic syndrome, the combination of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and prediabetes that tends to accompany thickening around the waist.

If you don’t like apples, how about pine nuts? Studies have concluded that pine nuts contain heart-healthy fatty acids which have been shown to prevent the formation of belly fat. Pine nuts are rich in pinolenic acid and have been found to boost levels of ghrelin, which signals your brain that you’re full. When ghrelin levels are high, not only do you not feel hungry, you’re more able to resist cravings.

Oats are another healthy, whole grain option of fat-burning foods.  Oats are high in soluble fiber and may be able to reduce cholesterol and blood fat. They’re also high on what nutritionists call the “satiety index,” meaning oats have tremendous power to make you feel full.

Lastly, fat-burning supplements can help your weight loss diet. Click here to check our entire selection of top quality fat burners.

Broccoli May Prevent Arthritis

Filed Under: Health Foods,Supplements at 6:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Broccoli is considered by many people as a staple of health food. Often used as a figure to promote and display health diets, broccoli may provide even greater benefits than we thought. A recent study has discovered that a compound found in broccoli could be the key to preventing or slowing the progress of the most common form of arthritis.

The research led by the University of East Anglia in England shows that sulforaphane slows down the destruction of cartilage in joints associated with painful and often debilitating osteoarthritis. The study, which also examined human cartilage cells and cow cartilage tissue, was funded by medical research charity Arthritis Research UK, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council’s (BBSRC) Diet and Health Research Industry Club (DRINC) and The Dunhill Medical Trust.

Sulforaphane is released when eating cruciferous vegetables such as Brussels sprouts and cabbage, but particularly broccoli. Previous research has suggested that sulforaphane has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties, but this is the first major study into its effects on joint health. The researchers discovered that sulforaphane blocks the enzymes that cause joint destruction by stopping a key molecule known to cause inflammation.

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease affecting the hands, feet, spine, hips and knees in particular. Aging and obesity are the most common contributors to the condition and there is no cure or effective treatment for the disease other than joint replacement or pain relief, which is often inadequate.

Arthritis Research UK’s medical director Prof Alan Silman said: “This is an interesting study with promising results as it suggests that a common vegetable, broccoli, might have health benefits for people with osteoarthritis and even possibly protect people from developing the disease in the first place.

No More Sugar

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Health Foods at 8:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

A recent U.S. study suggests that excess sugar may triple the risk of heart problems. Researchers also concluded that most Americans eat more than the safest daily amount of sugar since a lot of sugar intake comes hidden in many processed foods, substantially raising the risk. So, if you haven’t yet, it’s time to seriously considering cutting sugar out of your diet.

According to researchers, your chance of dying prematurely from heart problems is nearly three times greater than for people who eat only foods with little added sugar. For someone who normally eats 2,000 calories daily, even consuming two 12-ounce cans of soda substantially increases the risk. Sodas and other sugary drinks are often the main source of added sugar. Lead author Quanhe Yang of the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention called the results sobering and said it’s the first nationally representative study to examine the issue.

Yang and colleagues analyzed national health surveys between 1988 and 2010 that included questions about people’s diets. Authors used national death data to calculate risks of dying during 15 years of follow-up. Overall, more than 30,000 American adults aged 44 on average were involved, with death data on almost 12,000 adults, including 831 who died from heart disease. Other factors known to contribute to heart problems such as smoking, inactivity and excess weight were included. As sugar intake increased, risks climbed steeply.

Most health experts agree that too much sugar isn’t healthy, but there is no universal consensus on how much is too much. The U.S government dietary guidelines issued in 2010 does not recommended a daily limit for sugar consumption but the American Heart Association is suggesting men consume no more than nine teaspoons a day. For women, the recommendation is a maximum of six teaspoons a day.

Healthy Raw Chocolate

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

Did you know that chocolate can be healthy and one of its main ingredients can be considered a superfood? OK, it’s not that simple but it’s also not a false statement.

The cocoa tree, sometimes referred to as cacao tree, produces seeds that are normally dried and roasted before being used in the production of raw chocolate and cocoa powder. The pulp from these seeds is sometimes used to prepare a refreshing juice. Each seed contains a significant amount of fat as cocoa butter, and the most noted active constituent is theobromine, a compound similar to caffeine.

Also known as cacao nibs, these seeds may offer a variety of health benefits and are considered by many nutritionists as a superfood. Cacao nibs are a rich source of antioxidants such as procyanidins and also contain high levels of flavonoids, specifically epicatechin, which may have beneficial cardiovascular effects on health. In addition, cacao nibs contain minerals such as magnesium, iron, chromium, copper, and zinc, as well as serotonin, an important nutrient for the brain, which may have important implications for learning and memory.

Cacao nibs can be used to produce different grades of chocolate and are often used as snacks. The nibs are slightly bitter and may be sweetened with honey or used in baked goods. Cacao nibs and dark grades of chocolate may provide important health benefits. Studies have found short term benefits in LDL cholesterol levels from dark chocolate consumption. As a dietary fiber, cacao may help to keep your bowel movements regular. The fiber and polyphenols in cacao may work together to help control your blood pressure and blood glucose levels.

Happy New Year! Many people are starting 2014 with a New Year’s resolution and Lucky Vitamin is helping you celebrate 2014. You can save an extra 10% off our most popular resolution categories.

The most common New Year’s resolutions include losing weight, eating healthy, getting in shape, reducing stress, starting a cleanse, getting healthier skin, quitting smoking, getting more sleep, and many others. Some people prefer to choose a more generic resolution such as “being healthy” rather than a specific one. But shouldn’t “being healthy” be a must for anyone starting a New Year’s resolution? Some people may have a point on this discussion as you do have to be healthy to start and, most importantly, succeed in any resolution you make it for the New Year.

While the term may have many different interpretations, most people just want to improve their lifestyle. Perhaps eating more fruits and vegetables and eating less fast food, drinking more water and less soda. Others may take the opportunity for a fresh new start changing from completely unhealthier habits to healthier ones such as quit smoking and start a new workout. Every beginning of the year is a great chance to make wellness resolutions that will keep you energized, fit, and beautiful, inside and out.

Top 10 Lucky Foods For The New Year

Filed Under: Health Foods at 7:36 am | By: Kim McCorkell, Senior Editor

Looking to increase your luck in the New Year? LuckyVitamin.com is here to help. Enjoy these traditional foods in the New Year, and may luck, prosperity and good health follow you in 2014!

Long Noodles: Symbolic of longevity in Asian countries, the noodle is best in a stir fry or eaten as a salad. Just be careful not to break them – before or after cooking. Enjoy slurping them whole! Try Asian Noodles & Shrimp with calorie-free Miracle Noodle.

Pork: In countries like Spain, Cuba and Portugal, pigs symbolize progress. Served with its fat, ham is also known to bring a year rich with joy. Try Apricot Glazed Pork Kabobs.

Round Fruits: Their sweet flavors make them hard to resist in almost any country. Eat 12 grapes at midnight and each sweet one will bring one lucky month. Try Quinoa Pilaf with royal pearl quinoa.

Whole Fish: If you’re looking for luck in 2014 from start to finish, serve your fish from head to tail. Fish also only swim forward, symbolizing progress. Try Basil Baked Cod Fillets.

Pomegranate:   In Turkey the color red represents luck. But the pomegranate offers more than just that – it has medicinal properties, contains an abundance of round seeds for prosperity, and looks much like the life-giving human heart. For an on-the-go snack, try Kind Bar’s Pomegranate Blueberry Antioxidant bar.

Greens: Enjoy in abundance! Not only are they healthy for you, tradition suggests their green golor represents paper cash. The more you eat, the more prosperous you may  be!  Try Braised Greens with Garlic and add pine nuts for added protein and magnesium.

Lentils: In Italy this legume’s green color and coin-like appearance associate it with growing wealth. For a healthy snack, try The Perfect Snaque’s sprouted lentils with honey mustard.

Pickled herring: Yum? Herring is found in abundance in Western Europe, which is why Germans, Scandinavians and Polacks believe eating herring at midnight ensures a year of bounty. Their silver color also symbolizes coins for future fortune. You’re on your own for a recipe here.

Black-eyed peas: A traditional dish in the southern United states is known as Hoppin’ John features the humble black-eyed pea, penny-like in appearance. Eaten as leftovers on New Year’s Day, the Hoppin’ John becomes a Skippin’ Jenny which promotes frugality and prosperity. For something different, try Easy Lamb Creole Gumbo.

Cornbread: Served as a New Year’s treat, cornbread’s color resembles gold. Add extra corn kernels as gold nuggets for fun. Try Pamela’s Products gluten-free cornbread & muffin mix.

If you can’t find something you like to eat here, you could choose to avoid some foods, like lobster or chicken. Why? Lobster moves backwards. Avoid lobster to avoid setbacks. The chicken scratches backwards, so refrain to avoid regret or dwelling on the past. Best wishes for a healthy and happy New Year from all of us at LuckyVitamin.com!
