Grasses – Wheat and Barley…cereals or vegetables?
At the early grass stage of their growth, wheat and barley grasses are closer to vegetables than grains in composition.
The nutrient profiles of green cereal plants change quickly as they grow. As the plant grows, the chlorophyll, protein and vitamin content of cereal grasses declines sharply and the level of cellulose (indigestible fibre) increases. Over a period of several months, the green leafy cereal grasses become amber coloured grain bearing the kernels we harvest to make into flour.
Ageing Well with Green Tea….Have you had your polyphenols today?…
Tea is one of the most popular beverages consumed worldwide. About three billion kilograms of tea is produced and consumed yearly. Tea, brewed from the plant Camellia sinensis is consumed in different parts of the world as green, black or Oolong tea.
The potential health benefits associated with tea consumption have been partially attributed to the antioxidant property of tea polyphenols. Published reports suggest that green tea consumed daily improves the overall antioxidant protection in the body and supports healthy ageing processes by protecting the body against the damage caused by environmental and physical stress.
In Japanese, the word ‘cha’ means powder, so literally translated, matcha means ‘powdered tea’. With slightly more caffeine than regular green tea, but less than coffee, matcha tea helps increase energy without the jittery, feeling. In fact, tea can leave you feeling awake and energised while actually helping you feel relaxed.
Did you know?
Relaxing with Green Tea
Green tea contains an amino acid, L-Theanine which directly influences your body’s nervous system and actually helps calm you down, creating a feeling of relaxation while assisting mental clarity.
Alkalising – What does it all mean?
Alkaline diets are those that maintain a mostly plant based diet low in animal protein and this can result in a more alkaline urine pH. In other words, consuming foods that are high in acid or acid forming upon digestion will alter the mineral balance in the urine and affect pH balance of the body, making the body more of an acidic environment. For optimum health and vitality an alkaline body and urinary pH is considered to be the goal.
This topic starts to get a little confusing when we take into account the fact that each cell in our body produces acid during its normal cellular function of respiration. Our bodies produce lactic acid when we exercise. Most of our activities, including stress, is acid forming. We are in a constant state of flux. We are designed this way. We are not designed to constantly be in a state of high acidity either. Therefore, consuming foods such as Nutra Organics Clean Greens on a daily basis helps maintain alkaline balance in the body and can take the guess work out of what you should be drinking to normalise these everyday body processes.
Health Implications of an Alkaline Diet
