Know More About Proteins!

Types Of Protein Supplements
Whey protein is highly absorbable and provides the highest concentration of the leucine, isoleucine, and valine. They play a key role in the muscle-building process and also boost immune function.

Whey Concentrate: Whey concentrate is one of the least expensive forms of protein powder you can find on the market today. Some people have a hard time digesting concentrates, which leave them bloated and gassy. Some people live with it, and some people look for something else.

Whey Isolates: Whey isolates are one of the quicker absorbing proteins available on the market today, although pricey, it isn't the most expensive. You will find almost all of the containers of isolates have very low if any amounts of carbohydrates in them.

Hydrolyzed Whey: Hydrolyzed whey protein has some of the benefits of whey while providing highly absorbable peptides that can have anabolic effects. This is by far the most expensive protein you will be able to find.

Casein Protein: Casein protein is a slow digesting protein. It can be slowly absorbed for 5-7 hours which makes it a great choice for a pre-bed supplement.

Casein protein is also a good idea to use during the day to keep you full and to keep a constant supply of protein available between meals or snacks if you have a long period of time between them. The glutamine content in casein is very high which can maintain immune function.

Milk Protein Isolate: Milk protein contains both whey and casein proteins. This protein is full of amino acids from both whey and casein protein.

Soy Protein Isolate: Soy protein is a vegetarian source of protein. It has been shown to support thyroid hormone output, which helps increase the metabolism and aids in fat loss. The isoflavones found in the soy can help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Soy is also loaded with glutamine, arginine, and BCAA's.

There are forms of soy protein concentrate found in soybeans, tofu, and soymilk. Theses are not the same as soy protein isolates. Soy products can be estrogenic in men and can cause water retention and bloating.

Egg Albumin: Cooked egg whites are a good source of egg albumin. Egg albumin which has been known as the traditional protein has an amazing amino acid profile and is still one of the best whole food protein sources that you can get. Not only are they good for you, but eggs are relatively inexpensive.

You will also find some protein blends containing egg albumin due to its great profile. It is not uncommon to find it in meal replacements or sold solely as a protein powder.

Some Great Whole Food Protein Choices
Chicken Breast: Chicken breast is a relatively low-fat, high quality protein source. It contains high doses of BCAA's and has a good potassium-to-sodium ratio (which can positively influence water balance).

It is always best to try and get in as many whole foods as possible before using protein supplements. You can make many different platters with chicken, which makes it very versatile come meal time.

Top Sirloin Steak: Top sirloin is a lean protein source with an excellent potassium-to-sodium ratio, it provides iron and good amounts of the amino acids alanine and lysine, which can help support energy and lean body mass. It also contains a great amount of B12, selenium, zinc, and phosphorous.

Again, if you have it available, whole foods are a much better choice than protein supplements.

Tuna:This is another lean protein source that provides an excellent amount of BCAA's. Canned versions are not only convenient, but they are also inexpensive sources of protein. They also sell tuna in sealed packages as well.

Tuna can be put on crackers or in a salad or even ate straight out of the can/package. Tuna is a very nutrient dense choice having several minerals and vitamins found in it including niacin, selenium, B6, thiamin, phosphorous, potassium, and magnesium. It also has omega-3 fatty acids in it, which are the good fats that we all need in our diet that support cardiovascular health.

Salmon: Salmon has a high amount of BCAA's in as well as being loaded with omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon is a great source of protein and one of the better fish you can eat in terms of health benefits. It is great for maintaining cardiovascular health. Salmon is also loaded with minerals and vitamins such as selenium, niacin, B12, phosphorous, magnesium, and B6.

Nuts: Nuts such as cashews, walnuts, and almonds (just to name a few) are not only a great snack full of protein, but they also have many health benefits. They are also loaded with vitamins and minerals, which add to their already outstanding profile.

Rating the Nutrient Density of Foods
Prevailing food myths largely contribute to our overweight population and poor health for many. Lifestyle-related diseases are the most common causes of death, but according to a 2011 poll by Consumer Reports Health, 90 percent of the people believe that they eat a healthy diet.
Most people do not understand that whole plant foods are the best for our health – they are led to believe that processed foods labeled “low-fat” or “low-carb, ” artificially sweetened beverages, pasta, grilled chicken, and olive oil make up a healthful diet.
To illustrate which foods have the highest nutrient-per-calorie density, the aggregate nutrient density index, or ANDI lets you quickly see which foods are the most health-promoting and nutrient dense.

Protein Supplements- Boon or Burden

Inferior Nutrition
In a battle between supplements and whole foods, according to Dr Deepa Agarwal, whole foods are the clear winner. “Supplements aren't intended to be a food substitute because they can't replicate all of the nutrients and benefits of whole foods, ” If you rely on supplements, you’ll miss out on getting as much dietary fiber and as many natural and protective substances – such as phytochemicals and antioxidants – that you would have obtained by eating protein-rich whole foods.

Digestive Problems
That lack of fiber in supplements is one factor that can cause digestive problems, including constipation and diverticulitis. For that reason alone, Dr Deepa recommends following high-protein diets only on a short-term basis. You may be able to avoid some digestive issues by following a high-fiber diet, choosing a protein product that is fortified with fiber or taking a daily fiber supplement, so check nutritional labels when you’re shopping.

Kidney Risks
If protein supplements consistently put you past your recommended daily requirements, you may be subject to developing kidney problems because the kidneys are involved in breaking down protein. If you already have kidney disease, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that supplements could further impair the organs, essentially throwing them into overdrive by making them work harder to expel excess waste by-products.

Considerations
Protein supplements aren’t all bad news, however. In a study published in the journal “Diabetes/Metabolism Research & Reviews” in 2010, obese participants who ate a low-calorie diet that included protein meal replacements lost more weight and fat mass over the course of a year than subjects who did not have the supplements. If you want to add protein supplements to your diet, get approval from your nutritionist and use products that have natural ingredients and plenty of vitamins and minerals.

Health benefits of Kumquat fruit

Kumquat has a calorific value equivalent to that of grapes. 100 g of fresh fruits provide only 71 calories. Nonetheless, they are one of the incredible sources of health-benefiting phytonutrients such as dietary fiber, minerals, vitamins, and pigment antioxidants that contribute immensely to overall wellness.

Kumquat is eaten along with its peel, a unique feature that differentiates it from other citrus family fruits. Its peel is rich in many essential oils, antioxidants, and fiber. 100 g whole kumquats provide 6.7 g or 17% of daily recommended levels of fiber that is composed of tannins, pectin, hemicellulose, and other non-starch polysaccharides (NSP).

Fresh kumquats are packed with numerous health benefiting polyphenolic flavonoid anti-oxidants such as carotenes, lutein, zeaxanthin, tannins, etc. Kumquat peel composes many important essential oils, including limonene, pinene, α-bergamotene, caryophyllene, α-humulene, and α-murolene. Together, these compounds impart unique citrus aroma to the fruit.

Further, fresh fruits contain adequate levels of some of the antioxidant vitamins such as vitamin A, C, and E. Altogether, these phytochemical compounds in kumquat fruit help scavenge harmful oxygen-derived free radicals from the human body and thereby protect us from cancers, diabetes, degenerative diseases, and infections.

As in oranges, kumquats also very rich in vitamin-C. 100 g fruit provides 47.9 or 73% of RDA (Recommended daily allowances). Vitamin-C is one of the powerful natural antioxidant which has many essential biological roles to play such as collagen synthesis and wound healing. This vitamin has antiviral and anti-cancer activities, and helps prevent neurodegenerative diseases, arthritis, diabetes, etc by removing oxidant free-radicals from the body. Furthermore, vitamin-C felicitates iron absorption in the food.

Kumquat has good levels of the B-complex group of vitamins such as thiamin, niacin, pyridoxine, folates, and pantothenic acid. These vitamins function as co-factors for metabolism of carbohydrates, protein, and fats.

Further, kumquats are a modest source of minerals like calciuum, copper, potassium, manganese, iron, selenium, and zinc. Calicum is the chief element required for bone and teeth formation. Copper needed in the production of red blood cells. Iron required for red blood cell formation as well for cellular oxidation.

Wax Coating on Fruits and Vegetables

Conventionally grown fruits and vegetables are often waxed to prevent moisture loss, protect them from bruising during shipping, and increase their shelf life. When purchasing non-organic fruits and vegetables, you should ask your grocer about the kind of wax used on their surface even if you are going to peel it; carnauba wax (from the carnauba palm tree), beeswax, and shellac (from the lac beetle) are preferable to petroleum-based waxes, which contain solvent residues or wood rosins. Yet, it is not just the wax itself that may be of concern but the other compounds often added to it - ethyl alcohol or ethanol for consistency, milk casein (a protein linked to milk allergy) as a film former or soap as a flowing agent.

Unfortunately, at this point in time, the only way we know of to remove the wax from non-organic produce is to remove the skin, as washing will not remove the wax or any bacteria trapped beneath it. If you choose to do this, use a peeler that takes only a thin layer of skin, as many healthy vitamins and minerals lie right below the skin.

Organically grown fruits and vegetables do not contain synthetic (petroleum-based) wax coatings. However, certain waxes are permitted in the handling of certified organic fruits and vegetables including shellac (from the lac beetle) and carnauba wax (from carnauba palm). Of course, not all organic growers wax their fruits and vegetables, but if you are trying to avoid all vegetable and fruit waxes, we recommend that you ask your grocer about the wax status of your produce, even when purchasing organic.

Non-organic fruits and vegetables that are commonly waxed include:

Cucumbers
Bell peppers
Eggplant
Potatoes
Apples
Lemons and Limes
Oranges
