HEALTH NOTES FROM RADIO PERSONALITIES

You need 35 g of fiber a day, typical american gets 15!

Take 2 or 3 or 4 grams of omegas 3 per day.

You want to have a ratio of 1 part omega 3 to 1 part omega 6 or a maximum of 1 part omega 3 to 3 or 4 parts omega 6.We consumer way too much omega 6 because of canola oils, corn that animals eat and soy products.

Omega 3’s: Greens, flax, fish oil, coconut oil, etc Fish oil contains  EPA & DHA but if you eat flax seeds your body has to break it down into EPA & DHA.

Omega 3’s control blood pressure and is a natural anti-inflamatory.

The best fat to cook with is coconut oil, it’s safe for high heat.

Omega 3’s & 6’s:
You need a ratio of 3:1…most people are at 6:1!
ALWAYS check fish oil label…must have EPA(heart health) & DHA(brain health, vission). Some oils are molecularly distilled to remove heavy metals. Scientists have reported that a healthy intake is a ratio of 3-to-1 omega-3s to omega-6s. “Today, the ratio of omega- 6 to omega-3 fatty acids ranges from 15:1 to 30:1, instead of the pre-industrial age range of 1 to 2:1.5,” said MacKay. “Scientific evidence has established that a Western diet that provides high levels of omega-6 fats shifts the physiological state to one that promotes thrombosis, vasoconstriction, inflammation and poor cellular health.”

After 40 years-COQ10 for the heart a must!

2 to 3 Oz of Pomegranite Juice (Pom is okay) a day showed 35% less plaque in the carodid arteries.

If you are older than 40 years old a dinner plate is too big and you will gain weight unless exercising heavily!

The adrenal glans produce cortisole and adrenalin. Cortisole is a fat storing hormone. Adrenalin is needed for quick energy such as lifting a car off a baby. Cortisol is needed for eveyday kind of stress, causes some people to crave carbohydrates yet others loose their appetite.
