Info of Hot Nutrition

1. Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Eat a diet with 1000 mg omega-3 fatty acids daily. We now know the benefits include a lower risk for heart disease and stroke. They also reduce inflammation in our joints, bloodstream, and tissue. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in cold water fish like salmon, herring, mackerel, and tuna and in plant based foods like walnuts, flaxseed, and canola oil. Read food labels to find the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in each type of food. It will vary considerably.

2. Fiber
Eat 25-35 grams of fiber per day. Most Americans fall short in this area consuming only about half that amount. Fiber provides many gastrointestinal benefits, helps lower cholesterol, helps control blood sugar levels, and keeps you feeling fuller for longer. It is most commonly found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans and nuts. Although many foods that traditionally do not contain fiber (like yogurt) are starting to pop up all over the grocery store, there is some controversy as to the health benefits of this added fiber. Your best bet is to focus on getting your fiber from foods that naturally contain it-whole grains, fruits, vegetables, beans and nuts. All of those items are part of a healthy diet anyway.

3. Vitamin D
Vitamin D is one of the fat-soluble vitamins we need. Its main function is helping the body absorb calcium from the gut for healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D functions as a hormone, a messenger relaying signals throughout the body. There is new exciting research showing the importance of vitamin D. New studies show that people who take a vitamin D supplement appear to have a lower risk of death from any cause (“Are You Getting Enough Vitamin D?” Tufts Health & Nutrition Letter, December 2007). The current RDA (200 IU a day for adults 50 yrs. and under, 400 IU a day for people 51-70 yrs., and 600 IU a day for everyone over 70 yrs.) is thought not to be enough to do an adequate job. Many researchers are now suggesting 1000 IU for all adults. This amount includes vitamin D from foods, supplements and the sun.

4. Tea
Teas contain polyphenols, compounds with high antioxidant properties. EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) is the polyphenol that gets the limelight here. There are many varieties of tea, each with varying amounts of antioxidant activity. White and green teas have the most beneficial properties. Drinking up to 4 cups of tea a day is recommended to reap the antioxidant rewards. Hot or cold, drink it any way you like it.
