Fast Tips: Top Recommendations

Quick Review: Krill Oil, Coconut Oil and Turmeric

If I have to choose only 3 nutrient-supplements they are the following for the (brief) reasons given below:


              


"Astaxanthin is a natural carotenoid-type of antioxidant that is even more powerful than beta-carotene, alpha-tocopherol, lycopene and lutein.*" (source: mercola.com)

KRILL OIL: If you are looking for the best kind and source of astaxanthin which protects especially your eyes against free radicals that can cause cataracts, macular degeneration and other eye problems then check out this Krill Oil from Dr. Mercola. Not all Krill oil are created equal - ensure your source of Krill oil is the best available.

COCONUT OIL is now NOT thought to be the 'bad guy' of cholesterol. It's medium-sized fat molecules are now known to confer health advantages that other (polysaturated) fats do not:



50 percent of the fat content in coconut oil is a fat which is rare in nature called lauric acid. Lauric acid is a "miracle" ingredient because of its unique health promoting properties. Your body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-protozoa properties. Monolaurin is a monoglyceride which can actually destroy lipid-coated viruses such as:
  • HIV, herpes
  • Measles
  • Influenza virus
  • Various pathogenic bacteria
  • Protozoa such as giardia lamblia" ... etc. (source: mercola.com)
Not only that coconut water - "noelani," which in Hawaii means "dew from the heavens" - (the liquid inside young, green coconuts before they mature into those hairy, brown coconuts from which coconut milk is extracted from their white meat) is THE recommended sports drink because of its amazing health benefits! Organic coconut oil.

If you holiday or live in areas where fresh coconuts are readily available remember to enjoy the very refreshing taste as well as health benefits, of coconut water and its tasty, tender white flesh (which becomes thicker and crunchy in mature,brown coconuts). It's good for the environment too as it comes in its own handy, takeaway packaging ie. in its own shell - which is fully bio-degradable.


turmeric


TURMERIC is the wonder spice that has, in the words of Dr. Mercola, an "astonishing array of antioxidant, anti-cancer, antibiotic, antiviral..." properties. It confers a wide range of health benefits including cancer prevention, reducing inflammation, alleviating arthritis, detoxification and liver support, purifying blood, regeneration of brain cells after strokes, etc.,  and is easily available. However the cheap options can include fillers that dilute the level of the active ingredient, curcumin. Find safe, quality, organic sources with potent levels of cucurmin for best health benefits and results.

Turmeric is a popular ingredient and widely found in Indian curries, Asian foods like laksa (the soup is curry-based), Asian-spiced foods like spicy-kebabs, South-East-Asian dishes like fish and other types of curries, noodles, pickles like Achar, etc. and wherever these foods are found - which luckily these days is the world over. So enjoy your food knowing at the same time that you are boosting your health ... with every mouthful!
