A friend emailed me a clip from  Asia’s Got Talent –  called “Tribute to Mother Earth”  recently. This is one of the most stunning dance routine I have seen in a long time.  What a  pity there are not many more artistes in the world that bring home the truth of what we are doing to the planet. Killing the Rhinos for a belief that is founded on fiction;  litterbugs dropping litter as they walk down a street in parts of the city center; business and private emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere – when do we wake up and realize that Mother Earth cannot continue to house growing populations and abuse of her bounty?   The group that performed this brilliant piece of art is called El Gamma – go to You Tube as you have to see and hear the message.  Thank you El Gamma!

 

Are your eyes HEALTHY?

Posted by on Jul 1, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

Glued to Kindle, Tablet and PC Screens?  You have to limit your time spent staring at the screen. Specialists recommend that you look away from these screens every 20 minutes for at least 20 seconds.

Out in the sun a lot? If you are a sports fanatic either participating or watching, protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses. Your eyes need protection from the UV rays just as your skin does. Even when driving your car on a bright sunny day, eyes need relief from the glare.

Are you including the important nutrients in your diet?  If you are reading this you’re probably one of the converted who take nutritional supplements to keep healthy – but are supplements / nutrients for eyesight included? The omega oils in fish (sardines and pilchards) are said to be important in maintaining macular health, as are green leafy veggies. If your busy lifestyle does not give you the opportunity to eat these foods daily, think about taking a supplement that will support the macular health of your eyes. (Macular degeneration is particularly common in folk over the ages of 55 / 60 and is called Age Related Macular Degeneration.)

Supplements Nutritional Experts Agree on! Free radicals, pollution and cigarette smoke have a major in causing damage to the most vulnerable area of the eyes, which is the lens. Taking supplements that contain lutein ( a carotenoid) bilberry (a brilliant antioxidant) and zeaxanthin (another carotenoid) will go a long way in lowering the risk of macular health degeneration and maybe lower the risk of cataracts forming in later life.  Vitamins A, C and E are also vital in the maintenance of the health of your eyes.  Take a look at “Forever Vision”  which contains lutein, bilberry and zeaxanthin and “A-Beta-Care”  which contains Vitamins A, C and E.  Both found on the home page under Nutrition.

Vitamin C – Some Interesting Info

Posted by on Apr 22, 2012 in Blog | 0 comments

Vitamin C (also called ascorbic acid)  is an essential nutrient, a nutrient we have to obtain from our diets – our bodies do not manufacture it. Found only in fruit and vegetables,  the highest content is obtained in uncooked, or raw foods.  When you think of it, Vitamin C also stands for Citrus, a major source of Vitamin C.

A disease called scurvy was first written about around 1500 BC and later (apparently) in 450 BC described by none other than Aristotle as being a disease characterised by inflamed gums, tooth decay, lack of energy and bleeding problems.  In the 1700’s many British navy sailors and other fleets died of the disease.  It was only around 1932 that James Lind discover that the juice of lemons could prevent, even cure this dreaded disease. Thereafter ships carried British West Indies Lime on board for sailors to take on a daily basis. (It is said that that is how the British sailor’s became known as “limey’s”)

Other cultures discovered their own forms of Vitamin C – powdered rose hips, or spruce needles consumed daily as a tea. In the past, vast amounts of Vitamin C was consumed through diets – fresh fruits and vegetables. In our modern life styles today though, the required 5 – 6 servings of fruit or vegetables is a luxury many cannot afford through time and lifestyle factors and the unending increase in the price of fresh fruit and vegetables.  It’s therefore much easier to grab your daily dose of Vitamin C in a more convenient form, such as a pill or a canned drink!

Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)  is readily absorbed in the intestines – about 80% is ingested, but it is used up by our bodies within about 2 hours and for this reason the guru’s suggest it is taken every four hours.  Note that your body will use up your Vitamin C intake much quicker if you use excessive alcohol or worse even still, if you smoke.

Why do we need this Vitamin?  One of the most important functions of  Vitamin C  is the formation and maintenance of collagen, the basis of connective tissue which is found in our skin, ligaments, cartilage, joint linings, bones and teeth. It is needed to help us heal from wounds and to maintain healthy blood vessels.   Vitamin C is said to be beneficial for the improvement in colds, anaemia, allergies, glaucoma, arthritis, skin disorders. diabetes and hypertension.

So … if you are not getting your daily dose of Vitamin C (RDA 60mg per day) from your veggies and fruits then start taking a nutritional supplement.  Have a look at Absorbent C found in the nutrition category on the home page  – 1 tablet, which is chewable and has a pleasant citrus flavour, contains 60mg of Vitamin C. Bearing in mind that your body uses the intake up in 2 hours, we suggest  a minimum of 2 tablets per day -3 is better!
