Healthy eating method in meat

Which is better, beef or chicken?


American Clinical Research Center in Chicago has tested the changes in blood cholesterol of nearly 200 men and women. The researchers recruited these 200 participants to follow the National Cholesterol Education Program's heart-healthy diet menu for 36 weeks. Participants should have five to seven days every week to consume six ounces of red meat (beef or pork) or six ounces of white meat (chicken or fish) per day. The results showed that the participants by eating lean red meat, their cholesterol levels dropped 1.0%, while the low-density lipoprotein (commonly known as “bad cholesterol”) decreased 1.7%. The other groups were allocated by lean white meat, their cholesterol levels dropped 1.8%, while the low-density lipoprotein decreased 2.9%. It is because the saturated fat and cholesterol of lean white meat is less than lean red meat.

Nevertheless, we should not eat too much meat. High protein animal products such as meat, eggs and dairy products are lack of dietary fiber. If people get used to eat a lot of meat on daily basis and lack of taking fruits and vegetables; they will likely have constipation and diverticulosis problems, which have serious impacts on health. In fact, these problems may be improved by taking natural nutrients such as propolis. It has an effect on the intestines; and enhance intestinal contraction and promote intestinal peristalsis and defecation. Green Barley is rich in nutrients and eliminate toxins and clear the body waste in the intestinal tract. It also has intestinal detoxification effects. In addition, spirulina is also a good choice. It improves the gastrointestinal functions as well. The following is a seven-days healthy diet menu to share with you. We may improve our bodies beginning from the diet.

How to improve eyesight?


The eyes consist of the finest microvascular vessels. Eye capillaries are responsible for transporting nutrients and oxygen to the cells and providing adequate nutrition for the eyes.
Bilberry contains anthocyanin to protect microvascular vessels of the eyes. Many studies have indicated that bilberry can protect the cells, adjust connective tissues and muscle flexibility of the eyes. Nature healing in Europe often use bilberry as natural medicine for vision care.

Studies have shown that taking bilberry extract twenty minutes later, the blood flow to the eyes will be significantly increased. Because the anthocyanin in bilberry helps to strengthen the flexibility of capillaries, promote blood vessel expansion and improve the flow of veins and capillaries. When the blood circulation in the eyes is improved, eye muscle fatigue, edema, dark circle are also improved. Enhancing circulation and increasing supply of blood volume in the cells, they can strengthen eyesight. They are particularly helpful to keep retina healthy. The study also pointed out that after taking bilberry for six weeks, half of the people have improved their vision.

(Figure 1 Notes): Anthocyanin takes away the free radicals and other harmful substances in the microvascular vessels in order to maintain and improve healthy vision.

The Harvard Healthy Eating Pyramid

The Harvard Healthy Eating Pyramid

In 2008, the experts of Department of Nutrition, Harvard School of Public Health, published a new food pyramid--The Healthy Eating Pyramid.

 

Comparing to the traditional food pyramid, The Healthy Eating Pyramid sits on a foundation of "daily exercise and weight control". It's because the experts believe that "daily exercise and weight control" is the key to good health. Doing enough exercise and having a balanced diet, not only can help you control your body weight, but also keep you healthy. Those who exercise regularly tend to have relatively strong physiques, and do not fall ill easily. Moreover they have relatively fitter body shapes, and do not tend to be overweight or underweight. Therefore, doing exercises daily is definitely the best way for weight management, and they are interlinked. 

 

"Vegetables and fruits", "Healthy fats/oils" and "Whole grains" sit on the  second layer of The Healthy Eating Pyramid. Relatively, "Vegetables and fruits", and "Whole grains" are recommended to consume more. Eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables not only improve intestinal functions, protect against vision degeneration, but also safeguard the health of heart and blood vessels. In addition, the benefits of whole grains have been highly recommended by nutritionists. It's because whole grains are rich in dietary fiber, iron, folic acid and vitamin B12, etc. Thus, the Healthy Eating Pyramid also encourages people to eat more whole grains, such as oatmeal, whole wheat bread and brown rice. Besides, you might be surprised that isn't the food closer to the base of the food pyramid suggested to eat more? Why did the Harvard experts put "Fats or oils" near the base of the pyramid? It's because they distinguish the good fats or oils from the bad ones. For example, olive oil, rapeseed oil, soybean oil, corn oil, peanut oil, fish oil, etc. are good oils which can help protect the heart functions. 

 

The foods sit on the third layer includes "Nuts, seeds, beans and tofu" as well as "Fish, poultry and eggs." "Nuts, seeds, beans and tofu" can provide a lot of protein, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, which are much healthier than obtaining the protein from red meat. Besides, "Fish, poultry and eggs" not only are excellence sources of protein, they also contain lots of health benefits. For example, fish contains omega-3 fatty acids which are beneficial to heart functions; poultry contains relatively fewer cholesterol and saturated fat than red meat; and eggs can provide high-quality protein etc.

 

Food in the fourth layer includes the "Dairy products or vitamin D / calcium supplements." Adequate intake of calcium, vitamin D and doing exercise is the key to build healthy bones. Harvard experts even stressed that if you could not get enough calcium and vitamin D from the daily diet, you must consider to obtain them from supplements.

 

As we all know, the foods sit at the top of the pyramid, they should be used sparingly.  Foods sit at the top of The Healthy Eating Pyramid include "Red meat, processed meat and butter," "Refined grains, such as white bread, rice, pasta and potatoes ", " Sugary drinks and sweets "as well as " Salt ". Therefore, all of these foods should be used infrequently!

 

Healthy Eating Pyramid also highlighted that large majority of people should intake "Daily multivitamins and extra vitamin D", and some people can drink "Alcohol in moderation". You may wonder if someone has been very focused on a balanced diet, is it still necessary for him to take nutritional supplements? This is because even people are very cautious about their diets, they are still possible to lack of certain nutrients. Therefore, the Harvard experts believe that most people should take multivitamins and extra vitamin D supplements every day, to ensure that the body does not lack of nutrients. Coupled with modern busy lifestyle and fast food culture, having insufficient nutrients intake is very common. With the continuous development of nutrition, more evidences showed that many urban people do not have a balanced diet which may result in malnutrition. Therefore, the Harvard experts bravely suggested that the majority of people should take supplement daily in order to have balanced nutrients intake, and to prevent malnutrition due to improper lifestyle. Taking supplements just serves as an extra health insurance for the body. In addition, ‘Alcohol in moderation' benefits heart health. Therefore, Healthy Eating Pyramid also recommended some of the people to drink certain amount of alcohol. 

 

With constantly renewal of nutritional knowledge, we should have a new interpretation towards healthy eating. For the more health-conscious new generation, Harvard Healthy Eating Pyramid undoubtedly provide more new insights for their references. If you are among one of that group, from today, you should exercise every day, follow the dietary advices suggested by Harvard Healthy Eating Pyramid, and take nutritional supplements daily.

How to make kids smarter

How to make kids smarter


The brain is an organ of infinite potential. The younger the brain, the stronger the learning ability of the brain. Early training and inspiration of brain potential has far-reaching significance of the brain development in children. Children explore the strange world through five senses ---- sight, hearing, smelling, touching and tasting, while the brain is responsible for memorizing and analyzing these information. Stimulation from these five senses in turn affects the development of the brain, which also promote the synapse development in nervous system. With adequate stimulation, these synaptic activities are favorable for the development of thinking and messaging in nervous systems.

In order to promote children's intellectual development, many parents begin to explore nutritional benefits for brain development as early as infant formula. Among the many nutrients, DHA receives the most parental attention. DHA is also known as omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, is the main component of the brain, retina and nervous system. Early supplementation of DHA since pregnancy can ensure that the fetus has enough construction materials for healthy development of the brain and vision.

However, DHA cannot be synthesized by our body. It must be obtained from food. DHA can be derived from animals or plants. The DHA from plant source is primarily from deep sea algae; while salmon, sardines, tuna and other deep-sea fish are great sources for animal DHA. Children may intake more foods rich in DHA in order to provide the sufficient essential nutrients for the development of brain and vision.

Researchers used Stroop effect and Spatial Memory Test to study children's cognitive ability and brain function. They pointed out that after supplementation of omega 3 fatty acids, the brain worked less hard to transmit the message. Therefore the learning process of children could be smoother, whose cognitive ability could be greatly enhanced.

Correct understanding of BMI

Correct understanding of BMI


Hong Kong people are famous for their fast pace and rush lifestyle. Frequent consumption of extravagant meals may result in poor consequence to our health. BMI (Body Mass Index) is an objective indicator to assess obese level of adults by using height and weight. BMI can be a good reference to evaluate the risk to develop serious illnesses. 

BMI is calculated as:

\mbox{BMI} = \frac {w} {h^2}

w = weight, unit: kg

h = height, unit: m

Class

BMI(kgm²

Risk of developing serious illness

Underweight

< 18.5

Low

Normal

18.5 - 22.9

Average

Overweight

23 - 24.9

Increased

Obesity I

25 - 29.9

Moderate

Obesity II

> 30

High

By using the above formula, individuals can use their heights and weights to calculate their BMI. If BMI is greater than 22.9, the chance of suffering from serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure, is higher; if the BMI is less than 18.5, the risk for suffering from serious illness is low; while BMI is 18.5-22.9 is considered as normal.

However, BMI can only assess the degree of obesity of ordinary people (not applicable to athletes, because athletes have more muscles), cannot peek on the lipid and cholesterol levels in the body. Very a few people in Hong Kong have the habit of regular physical examination, and blood lipid and cholesterol level must be found through a blood test. Thus, even people with normal BMI should not overlook their risk in developing the aforesaid diseases, particularly those who have the family history of high blood lipid, blood sugar and cholesterol.

Our diets should follow the "three low and one high" principles, namely "low fat", "low salt," "low sugar" and "high fiber." In addition, in order to reduce undesirable substances and excess fat accumulating in the blood vessels, we should consume more food rich in omega -3 fatty acids such as fish and shellfish. Omega-3 fatty acids, such as DHA and EPA, can promote cardiovascular health and reduce the chance of having heart problems. In addition, studies have shown that lecithin can increase the mobility of fat, prevent fat accumulating in blood vessels, and increase high-density lipoprotein (good cholesterol) levels and therefore maintain good cardiovascular health.

Joint health protection

Joint health protection

Before understanding how to protect joints, you have to learn the structure of it first. A joint is where two or more bones meet, and soft tissue such as cartilage and ligament is found in it. Along with the growth of age, it will accelerate the loss of synovial fluid and friction of joint. But in recent year, this situation gradually gets younger, and the high-risk groups are sport enthusiasts, obese people, and for a long time sedentary office workers.
About joint maintenance, many people are familiar with shark cartilage products. Shark cartilage mainly consists of mucopolysaccharides, which can promote the secretion of joint fluid and lubricating fluid between the joints to form protective film. In addition, it can effectively reduce joint friction. Furthermore, the intake of glucosamines can promote the formation of main component of joint synovial fluid, which can prevent friction between the bones.
Human body can synthesize glucosamines, but the rate of decomposition is faster than the rate of synthesis as increasing age, then it can cause the loss of glucosamines in joints, and affect the metabolism of joint cells. Hence, the consumption of mucopolysaccharides and glucosamines is very important for joint health. 
In addition, except for the intake of shark cartilage, krill oil can also protect our joint. Krill oil contains natural active ingredients, especially focus on joint health, can relieve joint discomfort, enhance joint mobility, which is a good news for those who suffering joints pain or discomfort. 

Three ways to protect your joints: 

1. Weight control 
If you are overweight, it tends to increase the burden on joint, which will increase the risk of joint friction. Therefore, if you are having joint pain, it is time to lose some weight. 

2. Physical exercise
You can maintain an ideal weight and strengthen your joint through regular exercise such as muscle strengthening. Avoid doing vigorous exercise, which can reduce the risk of joint friction. 

3. Beware of posture
Avoid prolonged squatting or sitting and standing. Remember to change position frequently to prevent the knee fixed in one position.

Don't always stay at home, it will slow down the metabolism, and make them feel even colder. 

Drink water and detox for better health 
In Hong Kong, the weather in autumn and winter is really dry, which cause the skin to lose more moisture due to enhanced  water loss from the skin surface by evaporation), so that we needed to be more aware of water intake. Many people always drink water when they are thirsty, but our bodies generate  metabolic wastes in every minute, and then excrete the wastes through urine. So it is too late if you only drink water when you feel thirsty, since the concentration of harmful substances are increased. Except water, fresh fruit juice, soup and light tea also can provide additional water to body.

Blueberry - Are you addicted to smartphone?

With the continuous development of network technology, a group of individuals have been develop an addiction to their mobile devices. Starting from waking up, going to the toilet, dining, driving in the car, and even lying on the bed, almost all of them are staring at the screen or checking text messages. This kind of newly developed social model unconsciously becomes modern people's "addiction", and the situation is even more serious among young people.

 

 

The Hong Kong Occupational Optometrists Association has earlier conducted a survey on “the use of computers and electronic products in Hong Kong students” and successfully interviewed 829 parents of primary school students. According to the survey, the longest hour using computer among Hong Kong children is 21 hours. During vacation time, children usually spend 1.2 times longer than usual. Ophthalmologists point out that as school children lack the ability of self-control. If they use electronic products for a long period of time during the eye development stage, they are prone to myopia. A parent mentioned that her daughter, who is a Primary four student, had been using electronic products for a long period of time, she had myopia progression by 100 degrees within seven months. There were also a Primary six boy who had reached 800 degrees of myopia.

 

In addition, LED screens has become popular in recent years, the chromatograms of LED lamps are more concentrated on the blue light than general light bulbs. Some animal studies have found that certain blue light waves cause greater damage to retinal cells in the eye and may increase the risk of macular degeneration in the long run. Macula is the most important area of the retina. The macula provides us with the ability to read and see in great detail whereas the rest of the retina provides peripheral vision. Once a macular problem occurs, it will not only affect vision, but even the ability to distinguish colors.

 

 

How to reduce the damage of electronic products to the eyes?

1) Whether watching TV, computers or mobile phones, it is best to adjust the brightness of electronic devices to a comfortable level. At the same time, avoid using electronic products in a place where the light is dim or poorly lit. It is because when the contrast is too strong, it will cause greater damage to the eyes.

2) Generally speaking, when reading books or mobile phones, 33 to 40 centimeters is a suitable reading distance; when using a computer, the suitable distance to the screen should be 60 centimeters, and when watching TV, the best distance is 3 meters or more.

3) Reduce computer eyestrain with the "20-20-20 Rule for Eyes". Let your eyes rest for 20 seconds after every 20 minutes use of electronic devices, and look at objects that are 20 feet away to relax your eyes.

 

 

4) Nutrients for eyes:

  • Our retina is rich in DHA unsaturated fatty acids. Increase our intake of natural antioxidant can prevent the retina from oxidative damage. Natural antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, E, anthocyanins, etc., trace elements such as zinc, copper, selenium can also help reduce visual damage.
  • Clinical trials have proven that lutein helps reduce the risk of macular degradation. It also improves vision, protects the retina, helps absorb blue light and ultraviolet rays that damage the eyes, avoids damage to the macula, and prevents myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, etc. Lutein is more effective to combine with other eye-protecting nutrients such as anthocyanins and zeaxanthin. The combination of various nutrients can strengthen eyes’ health and improve visual acuity.
  • Regarding food sources, we are advised to eat a variety of fruit such as kiwi, grape, guava, orange, vegetables such as tomatoes, broccoli, spinach, etc. to obtain the required nutrition. If you encounter eye tiredness and sourness or have nearsightedness, and those who are frequent computer users can maintain vision health by using high dosage of lutein and bilberry.
  • Blueberry was selected as the top ten health foods by Time Magazine. It contains anthocyanins, an extremely powerful antioxidant. Many people have heard that blueberries has the function of enhancing eyesight. Bilberry is an expensive premium originated in Northern Europe, where days are long and nights are short during summer time, the bilberries there are exposed to sufficient sunlight which make them contain more than 10 times anthocyanins than regular blueberries. Their health value are very high.

 



 

AUSupreme Super Eye Care (Extra Strength) is made from 10,000mg Australian bilberry (European Blueberry) per capsule, it contains 36% anthocyanosides with excellent antioxidant effect. The addition of eyebright (known as the “edible eye drops”) and marigold extract (containing 6 mg of lutein), has greatly enhanced its efficacy of eye protection.

Whenever the weather changes, we will easily encounter upper respiratory tract discomfort. Besides, humid weather contributes to the growth of dust mites and mold, so people with symptoms of allergic rhinitis will have hard time suffering from nasal congestion, nasal itching and sneezing constantly, especially in the morning and evening

 

Symptoms of allergic rhinitis is most commonly caused by allergy to house dust mites, animal dander, cockroaches, mold spores and pollens. When a patient comes in contact with an allergen, the immune cells in the blood will produce too much special antibodies, ie "IgE" antibodies, which secrete "histamine" to stimulate the nerves, which then cause symptoms including runny nose, sneezing, stuffy nose, allergy symptoms in the eyes and even "dark circles" appear under eyes due to the weakened capillaries in the skin around your eyes.

 

 

To avoid the influence of temperature difference, it is recommended that you wear extra clothes and scarf to keep warm in the morning or in the evening. When you need to travel between indoor and outdoor, you can stop for a while and help narrow the effect of temperature differences on nasal tract. Here are some more tips to help keep away from symptoms of rhinitis:

 

 

1. Appropriate exercise and sun exposure
2. Avoid using carpet
3. Clothes should be placed in wardrobes to prevent dust mites
4. Wear a mask when cleaning home

 

 

5. Keep your home dry and ventilated
6. Always open and clean the shower curtain
7. Use dust mite killer for cleaning
8. Use an air filter to remove mold spores
9. Use blinds instead of curtains and keep them clean
10. Avoid giving fluffy toys to children
11. Avoid staying in air-polluted environments, such as densely populated places
12. Wash quilts, bed sheets, and pillows every week with hot water

 

The quality of diet is closely related to our immunity. High-quality nutrition enables our body's immune system to maintain their combat effectiveness to defend our health. The best foods to boost immunity are all around you. The following simple diet strategies can increase your combat effectiveness:

 

 

1) Consume high-quality protein
2) Choose foods rich in vitamin B complex and unrefined grains
3) Eat five colors of fruits and vegetables every day to increase antioxidant capacity
4) Researches verified that polysaccharides in mushrooms can modulate and enhance immune function
5) Reduce sugar intake to avoid leukocyte activity being inhibited
6) Eat garlic, cheese, etc. to promote immunity

 

Apart from the above methods, a treasure from nature - propolis is also the savior of immunity.

  • Propolis is a resinous mixture collected by bees from plant resins such as buds, young leaves, and bark of a tree, and mixed with bees' saliva, beeswax, and pollen. The bees apply it to the inner wall of the honeycomb and cracks. Propolis is antibacterial and antiseptic, it helps to block the invasion of toxins, which keeps the hive remains sterile.

Natural Joint Lubricants

Glucosamine - Natural Joint Lubricants

Have you had the experience of joint cracking and popping while walking, feeling pain when climbing up the stairs, or feeling weak after bending knees? Because of high mobility level and heavy loading, knee joint is one of the most vulnerable joints to degenerations. The cartilage on the articular facet starts to degrade with age because of cumulative use. The white surface has lost its luster and cracked gradually, its smooth surface turned fluffy. Finally, the cartilage disappears, exposing the yellowish bare bones underneath rubbing each other.

 

 

The reasons of joint degradation

  • 1)Physically injured, such as joint sprain or knee injury
  • 2)lack of exercise
  • 3)overweight
  • 4)joint defects, such as bow legs
  • 5)body aging, also known as "wear"
  • 6)genetic diseases, such as congenital weak cartilage, resulting in cartilage easily over-wear

 

Methods of joint degeneration

 

1)Moderate exercise

  • Exercise is very important to improve joint degeneration, because exercise can increase the flow of synovial fluid, strengthen the muscles, tendons and other supporting structures and increase physical fitness. Exercise can also improve emotions and sleeping quality, soothe tension, strengthen bones, etc. People who suffer from joint degradation should formulate their exercise plan appropriately, they need to adjust exercise type and frequency according to their own fitness level and age. In general, sports activities like walking, swimming and cycling are relatively easy and achievable. In addition, one also need to properly control his/her weight, so as not to cause too much burden to the joints.

 

2)Healthy diet

  • Healthy diet is also important for joint health. Avoid eating too many deep-fried, difficult to digest food; eat more fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water.

 

3)Take appropriate nutritional supplements

  • Areas prone to joint degeneration including hip, knees, waist and distal interphalangeal joints (ie, the last joints of fingers), etc. Patients will feel painful whenever they move their joints. They depend on medicine to reduce the pain, but all analgesic drugs have a certain degree of side effects.


  • Glucosamine is a popular nutritional supplement in recent years, studies show that it has the function of relieving joint pain.
      Glucosamine can be synthesized by our bodies, it is broken down into amino acids inside our bodies and converted to galactose or chondroitin to provide necessary nutrients to the cartilage tissue. However, the synthesis rate of glucosamine cannot keep up with the rate of decomposition with age. When our bodies are lack of glucosamine, it will affect the metabolism of intra-articular cells, causing joint pain, degradation, etc.


      supplementation of glucosamine can promote the synthesis of proteoglycans and collagen in the body, providing the necessary nutrients for cartilage tissue and synovial fluid.
    • Another joint element, chondroitin, is also the main nutrient for the formation of chondrocytes.
        chondroitin has a high degree of hydrophilicity and viscosity, it attaches to the surface of tissues, it plays an important role in maintaining moisture of connective tissues and interstitial material exchange, so as to buffer vibration and improve lubrication.
        Chondroitin can also promote the secretion of joint fluid, such as synovial fluid, which helps cartilage to absorb nutrients, and enhances cartilage elasticity.

 


 

Ausupreme Super Joint combines two important elements that maintain the health of joints and cartilage - each tablet contains 1500 milligrams of glucosamine hydrochloride and 100 milligrams of chondroitin sulfate. It can enhance the health of the joints with a synergistic effect.

Super Natural Probiotics - Your Intestinal Guardian

Do you have the habit to look in the toilet before you flush? It is worth to take a little time to take a closer look because what your stool looks like is an important sign to reflect your colon health.

 

 

Sausage-like stool with smooth and soft texture is the ideal one, it normally has 20% water content, which makes it drops to the bottom of the toilet bowl. If the stools are separated into hard lumps, like nuts, or in sausage-shaped but lumpy, both of these shapes reflect insufficient consumption of fibre and water, and are symptoms of constipation.

 

According to the Bristol Stool Chart, stools are classified into 7 categories:

 

 

Urban people usually live with fast-paced rhythm, they are always stressful, and cannot eat and sleep in regular hour. Symptoms of constipation are very common, thanks to the below unhealthy habits:

 

1.Improper diet
Consuming fast food on a regular basis, addicted to fried and spicy food, too much high protein, heavily processed and refined foods, lacking of dietary fiber, coupled with drinking habit and insufficient water intake, these are all factors to promote defecation difficulties.

 

 

2.Bad bowel habits
Hong Kong people are busy day and night, having almost no time to go to the toilet, sometimes they may hold back the stool or unwilling to spend enough time in the toilet. Over time, fluid is drawn out of the colon and leaving the stool too hard to discharge out.

3.Unhealthy living habits
Urban people are generally sedentary and lack of exercise, which are likely to cause defecation difficulties.

4.Disease or medication
Illness or taking drugs are also major causes of defecation difficulties. For example, fever will increase the loss of water, which may cause difficulty in defecation; some drugs (such as cough medicine) contain ingredients that inhibit intestinal peristalsis.

 

What is Probiotics?
Probiotics are long-standing intestinal bacteria that are symbiotic with humans. These bacteria do not make people sick and can bring many benefits to humans, such as lactobacillus, bifidobacteria and a few strains of Streptococcus. Below are some of their important functions:

1.Promote the synthesis of Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin K and enzymes.
2.Balance intestinal flora, inhibits disease causing organisms.
3.Boosts immune system.
4.Lower the pH value inside intestine.
5.Compete with pathogenic microorganisms, avoiding them from attaching to the intestinal epithelial cells.
6. Maintain the intact immune regulation of the intestinal surface protective layer.
7. Support the role of immune cells in nutrition.
8. Activate immune cells.
9. Reduce the degree of allergic reactions.
10. Promote nutritional effects, providing short chain fatty acids.
11. To promote the digestion of lactose, improve lactose intolerance.
12. Improve the balance of intestinal bacteria after taking antibiotic.
13. Improve defecation difficulty.

 

 

Directions for use:

  • probiotics can be used continuously to create a high quality intestinal environment, to adjust the immune system and improve allergic symptoms. As urban people has poor eating habits which easily attract harmful bacteria, taking probiotics continuously can help to maintain an optimal bowel environment.
  • Probiotics mainly function in the intestine, they do not need to enter the blood circulation, nor go through liver and kidney metabolism. Overdosing on Probiotics will not affect the health of the body. For long-term use, probiotics will not only improve the symptoms of allergies, our intestine will become healthier too.

 


 

Organic Nature Super Natural Probiotics uses A+B formula. Each capsule contains 12.5 billion Lactobacillus acidophilus and 12.5 billion Bifidobacterium lactis, which can improve digestion and absorption, and promote intestinal health.

Emu Oil – Help relaxing your tendons and muscles

Deterioration of joints is a common health problem that not only resulting in pain, it can greatly affect our daily lives. Joint deterioration is no longer an elderly problem, the age of the patients are getting younger in recent years. The knee joint is the largest joint in the human body and is the most vulnerable area. Other areas that may be affected include hip joints, spine, ankles, thumb, or other finger joints. In addition to redness, swelling, heat, and pain, patients’ walking distance will also be limited, and it is very difficult for them to squat, walk stairs, drive, etc.

 

 

Many conditions in your life that you do not care about may be early signs of joint degeneration. The following five conditions deserve attention:

1. Waking up with stiff joints
After a good night’s sleep, you find that your body is unable to perform as usual and it takes half an hour or more to recover. Degenerative joints are usually stiff, and get more painful if you move more. Rheumatoid arthritis, on the other hand, relieves if you get more active.

 

2. Knee pain when walking up and down the stairs
Stinging knees happened when you walk up and down the stairs, it felt like being locked. If we are overweight, the condition will get worse. Overweight directly increases joint’s burden, and statistics show that about 60% of obese people have joint problems. Many people with joint problems lead a sedentary lifestyle due to joint pain and inconvenience. They stay at home to eat and drink, and continue to gain weight, which worsen their joint problems.

 

 

3. Always carry heavy objects
If we often have to use force to hold objects, we will easily accumulate joint problems in our hands.

 

4. Long-term use of computers
Due to frequent bending of the neck, injuries from the neck to the sternum, shoulders, and wrists easily occur. If you use a touch phone or tablet frequently, it can easily hurt your finger joints.

 

 

5. Wearing flip flops
Since most of the "flip-flops" are relatively flat and do not provide adequate support for the arches, they can easily stress the knees or other joints. Furthermore, wearing flip-flops requires the toes to be firmly grasped with many strengths, it will increase joint pressure and raise the chances of soles, heels, and knee strain.

 

 

With the advanced medical technology nowadays, joint replacement surgery is very popular, but it is a large operation and it is expensive. Therefore, prevention of joint degeneration is the top priority for everyone. Here are some details of daily life that can effectively protect the joints:

  • Appropriate exercise can maintain joint elasticity and prevent cartilage degradation
  • Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables to obtain vitamins and minerals
  • Take appropriate supplements such as glucosamine, chondroitin, etc.
  • Maintain normal weight to reduce joint burden and abrasion
  • Even if you have slight joint pain, it is recommended to immediately massage the affected area with emu oil

 

As early as thousands of years ago, Australian aborigines have found that emu oil has a significant effect in alleviating joint and muscle pain. Emu oil is rich in vitamins A, E, and other valuable active ingredients. In the past 200 years, emu oil has been widely used by Australians to moisturize skin, eliminate swelling, and relieve muscle and joint pain.

 



 

AUSupreme Emu Oil uses a unique compound formula by adding precious ingredients such as Australian tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, pepper extract and almond oil, which magnify the effect, thereby reducing various muscle and joint discomforts more quickly, effectively, and completely.

Omega 3 – Does your heart hurt?

 

 

Blood flowing through our whole bodies mainly relies on the heart's pulsation. The heart can be regarded as the center of circulatory system. It is a hollow organ mainly composed of muscles. It is located slightly left side of our chest. It pumps the blood in an average of 60-70 times per minute, about 100,000 times a day, and nearly 2 billion times a lifetime without resting, so protecting heart health is an important task for everyone!

 

The 7 factors affecting heart health suggested by the American Heart Association include:

1. Blood pressure
2. Cholesterol
3. Diabetes
4. Body mass index
5. Smoking

 

 

6. Exercise: Effective aerobic exercise (Heart rate over 120, more than 30 minutes time) can promote heart health.

 

 

7. Diet structure: Avoid high-sodium, high-sugar, high-fat and processed foods. Consume at least 5 servings of low-sugar fruits and vegetables daily (a bowl of halfcooked vegetables and 2 fist-sized fruits). We also need to eat deep-sea fish, nuts, and vegetable oil to supplement essential fatty acids.

 

Apart from squeezing time to exercise, changing a bit of our eating habits can have a decisive effect on our heart health.

 

Hong Kong people's eating patterns

 

 

The diet of Hong Kong people tends to become Westernized, with more meat and less vegetables. However, saturated fats are often found in animal foods such as meat and milk. Red meat has higher saturated fat contents among all meat products, such as beef, mutton and pork. It is recommended to select more white meat and lean meat, and preferentially select poultry such as chicken, duck, and seafood, and remove skin, which can greatly reduce saturated fat intake.

 

The choice of cooking oil

 

For cooking oil, lard contains more saturated fat. Its saturated fat content is about 40 grams per 100 grams of lard, while vegetable oils such as soybean oil and olive oil contain only 16 grams of saturated fat per 100 grams. It is preferable to choose vegetable oils which are mostly unsaturated fatty acids.

 

 

Eliminate the intake of trans fat

 

The U.S. Federal Food and Drug Administration has issued a ban that will progressively forbid the use of partially hydrogenated fats by food manufacturers in a year time. Trans fats will increase low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in the blood, reduce good high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and cause blockage in blood vessels. It will then affect brain function and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.

 

 

Eat more deep-sea fish

 

 

The Eskimos living in Greenland mainly eat fish, fur seal and other marine animals. They rarely consume fresh vegetables and fruits. According to medical theory, such eating habit can easily lead to cardiovascular problems. However, the fact is that the number of people suffering from cardiovascular diseases is lower than in many European countries. This peculiar phenomenon has also been observed among Japanese fishermen. It shows that eating fish has a unique protective effect on human heart health.

 

In addition to protecting cardiovascular health, fish oil has also been proven in many medical literature to help increase the activity of brain cells, enhance memory, enhance immunity, and improve vision and joint problems*, especially those fishes with high fat content such as salmon, sardines, scomberomorus, etc., have the most obvious effect.

Evening Primrose Oil – The key to good mood for ladies

 

Most women will have few days a month feeling irritated and uncomfortable. They are particularly vulnerable to fatigue and even have to take leave from work. According to a survey conducted by the Chinese University of Hong Kong, about 90% of women in Hong Kong are affected by Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). Premenstrual syndrome is a set of specific physical and psychological features occur in the last half of a woman's menstrual cycle. The "premenstrual syndrome" experienced by each woman may be different. To summarize, the following 12 symptoms are commonly occur:

 

 

1. Mood swing
2. Weight gain
3. Abdominal bloating
4. Swollen hands, feet and eyes
5. Breast pain
6. Nausea
7. Hot flash, sweating
8. Dizziness
9. Waist discomfort
10. Pelvis bulge
11. Acne problem
12. Irregular bowel movements

 

There are many ways to relieve the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. Everyone can make individualized approach in response to individual PMS problems. In addition to maintaining exercise habits and healthy lifestyles, some simple diet can also help you to relieve discomfort.

 

Premenstrual syndrome diet regulation
A balanced diet can relieve the symptoms of PMS. We are advised to eat a variety of food every day including: dairy products, grains, fruits, vegetables and proteins. Besides, we need to ensure that the following nutrients are adequately absorbed:

 

1) Calcium - can relieve emotional swing, head discomfort, bloating, and irritability. It is found in dairy products such as milk, cheese, yogurt, juices with added calcium (fortified), bread, cereals and soy products.

 

 

2) Magnesium - It can relieve bloating and breast tenderness. Magnesium-rich foods include fresh fruits and vegetables.

3) Vitamin B6 - Assists the body to use serotonin, which helps relieve depression. Foods rich in B6 include chicken, fish, potatoes, eggs and carrots.

4) Vitamin E - Reduces head discomfort and breast tenderness. Nuts such as almonds, peanuts and hazelnuts are rich in vitamin E.

5) High carbohydrates and fiber contents - Carbohydrates increase brain serotonin levels while stabilizing energy and serotonin levels, while high fiber carbohydrates have low glycemic index which take longer digestion time and can maintain the feeling of fullness longer. High-fiber carbohydrates foods include: whole grains such as brown rice, whole wheat bread, whole wheat noodles, fresh fruits and vegetables, and beans such as peas and lentils.

 

 

6) Foods rich in tryptophan - Low serotonin levels can make people want to eat junk food. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps us to relax. Tryptophan in food can be converted to serotonin. Eat tryptophan-rich foods such as bananas, mushrooms and soy products can increase serotonin levels.

7) Gamma-Linolenic Acid - A polyunsaturated fatty acid belongs to the special Omega-6 series of essential fatty acids. GLA cannot produce by human body and must be taken from food. Except for breast milk, GLA only exists in a few plants such as evening primrose, black currant and borage grass. Linoleic acid is particularly suitable for soothing the common symptoms of women, such as PMS discomfort, breast discomfort, menopausal symptoms and emotional stress, effectively promoting women's physical health.

Liver Tonic - Detoxification & Anti-oxidation Expert

Liver is well-known to be multi-functional and diligent. However, it is easily being overlooked and is called the "silent organ." We will suddenly realize until it develops problems. The liver has as many as 500 functions, including storing of the vitamins, minerals and sugars that the body needs, controlling the production of secretions and cholesterol, and producing thousands of enzymes that control body functions. Secondly, it also secretes bile and stores the bile in the gallbladder. The liver can metabolize proteins, fats, carbohydrates, handle heme in the blood, and use iron in the heme. In conclusion, the liver is an organ with the most biochemical work in human body.

 

 

According to statistics, each person consumes an average of about six kilograms of food additives each year, such as preservatives, paraffin, pigments, flavoring agents, anti-microbial agents, residual pesticides, etc., and the liver must filter all of these chemicals. In addition, the liver must also filter all kinds of drugs (including frequently used antibiotics and acetaminophen), and sometimes it will be damaged when filtering drugs. In a modern life filled with various chemicals everywhere, it is important to maintain a healthy liver function.

 

 

Compared with major cities in the world, Hong Kong office workers has the longest working hour. Under the prevailing culture of overtime work, Hong Kong people usually cannot keep regular hours, eating out, staying up late, lack of exercise, and suffering from long-term stress. So how to maintain our liver health in such a busy lifestyle?

 

Cultivate healthy habits
In fact, as long as we change some small habits in life, we can protect our liver and keep our body healthy.

 

Adequate sleep: Adequate and good-quality sleep can assist liver repair, if you want to protect your liver, you need to sleep at least 6 to 7 hours a day. Sleeping adequately not only protects the liver, but also prevents the body from becoming hungry and inadvertently eating extra calories, causing weight gain.

 

 

Take deep breaths outdoors: Experts recommend that you should go outdoors as much as possible. Fresh air is full of negative ions, which can provide enough oxygen for your brain. If you can add appropriate aerobic exercise such as brisk walk, you can be healthier easily.

 

Take deep breaths often: Swimming world champion Rebecca Soni once said, “When my mind starts to think of the challenges of the next day, I will take deep breaths. After long-term breathing exercises, you will know how to relax and stay healthy.”

 

Put an end to alcohol and tobacco: If you can't stop drinking completely, remember the “do not overdo” principle: Men do not consume more than 2 servings of alcohol per day and for women not more than 1 serving per day. 1 serving of alcohol is 15 grams of alcohol, equivalent to 375 milliliters of beer (4% alcohol concentration), 150 milliliters of fruit wine (alcohol concentration 10%), 40 milliliters whiskey (40% alcohol concentration) or 30 milliliters of sorghum liquor (alcohol concentration 58%). Even if the consumption is appropriate, it will increase the burden to the liver every day. It is recommended that alcohol be banned for at least 2 days a week for a rest.

 

Nourished food for liver
You may wish to consume more of the following types of food:

 

1. High-quality protein: Foods such as tofu, eggs, milk, fish, sesame, etc., are all high-quality protein foods that have liver repair functions. However, it is important to avoid deep-fried or salted cooking methods. In addition, try to avoid high-calorie meat products.

 

 

2. Cruciferous vegetables: including broccoli, cauliflower, kale, all contain sulforaphane, which induces detoxifying enzymes in the liver and increases the amount of glucosinolates in the human body to produce digestive enzymes.

 

3. Green Tea: Green tea is rich in catechins. Many studies have confirmed that this plant antioxidant can reduce liver fat accumulation and promote liver function. In addition, green tea can also prevent toxic substances from harming the liver, making it difficult for toxic substances to accumulate and cause damage.

 

4. Turmeric: Turmeric helps the body to digest fat, stimulate the production of bile, and help the liver to detoxify.

 

 

5. Lemon: Lemon is rich in vitamin C, which has antioxidant effect, it reduces the destruction of free radicals, alleviates the chronic inflammation of the organ, it also can effectively promote the synthesis of protein and help repair liver tissues.

 

6. Garlic: Contains high amounts of allicin and selenium to help the liver detoxify.

 

7. Milk thistle: The main active ingredients of milk thistle is silymarin, which has the functions of strengthening the liver, decomposing fat, and repairing liver tissue. In addition, it also promotes protein synthesis, thereby accelerating the regeneration of hepatocytes. Silymarin can increase liver defense materials such as glutathione and peroxide dismutase and help the liver neutralizes and decomposes toxins, like an herbal liver purifier, which effectively removes harmful substances and reduces liver damage such as nicotine, alcohol, and lack of sleep.

 


 

The AUSupreme Liver Tonic is formulated with herbs, each of which is made of 6000mg milk thistle fruit. With 68.57mg silybin, it strengthens the liver and the effect is significant.

Super Algae DHA – Helping mothers to grow smart babies

Omega-3 fatty acids are "good fats" and are one of the most important nutrients missing in today’s urban diet. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) commonly known as the essential brain food , is the most important and abundant omega-3 fatty acid in our brain. DHA is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that is very important to the human body and is a major element in the growth and maintenance of cells in the nervous system. Since our body cannot effectively produce DHA, we need to absorb this important nutrient from our diet in order to maintain the optimal function of our brain. According to scientific research, the brain accumulates DHA at the fastest rate 3 months before birth and 3 months after birth. Therefore, if the expectant mother can consume enough DHA, it is very important for the composition and development of the fetal brain cell network. In addition, DHA is also the key to early baby nutrition.

 

Immune System: The First Pass of Infant and Child Health
Research shows that pregnant women who consume enough DHA during pregnancy can help improve the immune function of babies. After weaning your baby from breast milk, he or she completely depends on his / her own physical ability to resist the invasion of various harmful bacteria in nature. If DHA is insufficient, it will lead to immune dysfunction and easily be invaded by harmful bacteria. Supplementing DHA can enhance immunity and reduce the chance of illness to a large extent.

 

 

Brain development
The human brain has about 100 billion neurons, which is the basis for the brain's complex functions and wisdom. Brain development requires a series of complex processes such as the formation and modification of cells. Nutrients and energy are the material basis for brain development. 0 to 6 years of age is a critical period of brain development, so DHA is an essential nutrient for fetal and childhood brain development. DHA can promote the formation of neural networks, accelerate the release of neurotransmitters and the speed of information transmit, and repair damaged brain cells. In the last trimester of pregnancy, the DHA contents of fetus' brain will increase 3 to 5 times, so expectant mothers should ensure sufficient DHA intake at this time.

 

 

Promote retinal cell maturation
About 60% of the information obtained by the human brain comes from vision. Therefore, the visual function directly affects children's response ability, spatial perception, and the speed of perception. DHA is an important component of the retina, lack of DHA will impair visual function, resulting in slow development of visual acuity and prolonged fixation of the optical signal stimulus, thus affecting the infant's ability to respond and observe.

 

Improve IQ development in infants and young children
0 to 6 years old is a critical period for the development of children's IQ. Studies have shown that children supplemented with DHA during this period have significantly improved their cognitive, language, and motor skills compared to other children. In the absence of DHA, the division and proliferation of fetal brain cells will be impaired. In severe cases, brain cell development will be delayed and the intelligence level will be low. Insufficient intake of DHA in pregnant women can lead to very light weight of the baby at birth, delayed development of the nervous system, mental flexibility, language expression ability, comprehension and fine motor activity are lower than normal children.

 

 

With anti-allergic, enhance immune function
The prevalence of allergic symptoms in children and adolescents have been increasing year by year. Severe situations can affect the physical and mental health and academic performance of children and adolescents. Clinical studies have found that arachidonic acid (ARA) can synthesize substances that cause allergies in vivo. If the intake of DHA is appropriate, excessive ARA formation can be avoided, allergic reactions and opportunities can be reduced, and immunity can be enhanced.

 

As we have known that DHA is so important to pregnant women, babies, and children, which foods are rich in DHA?

 

1, breast milk
The DHA contents in colostrum is particularly rich. However, the amount of DHA in breast milk depends on the food choices of the mother's meals. Japanese mothers eat fish more often, the DHA contents of their breast milk is up to 22%, which is ranking first in the world; followed by Australia, about 10%; and the United States lowest, only 7%.

 

 

2, Algae
In addition to the rich contents of DHA, seaweed also contains a variety of vitamins and minerals, and has good health benefits.

 

3, deep-sea fish
Fish with high DHA content include tuna fish, salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna, yellow croaker, Pacific saury, etc. However, due to the high content of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) in fish oil, the proportion of DHA is too low, which is quite different from breast milk and does not meet the physiological needs of infants.

 

 

4, Dried fruit
Such as walnuts, almonds, peanuts, sesame and so on. The alpha-linolenic acid contained therein can be converted into DHA in human body.

 

5, formula milk powder
DHA-fortified formula milk powder.

 

6, DHA supplements
There are two options available in the market: one is from deep-sea fish oil and the other is from algae. In contrast, the advantages of algae are outstanding. Algae oil is a pure plant-based DHA raw material. It is extracted from artificially cultivated marine microalgae without passing through the food chain and is currently the purest and safest source of DHA in the world.
