Nutrition Foods Diet Can Greatly Increase Your Immune System With Some Simple Changes on Your Part

In America we are nutrition deficient- we are lacking serious nutrition.

That may come as a shock to many people, but the facts don’t lie. With the fast food restaurants as big as they are as well as processed foods being cheaper and more convenient the consumption of nutrition-inferior foods has skyrocketed. And along with that have come many nutrition related health complications.

Are You Tired All The Time?

A typical American consumes about 50% of their carbohydrates as simple sugars which are added to foods as opposed to sugars that come naturally in fruits and vegetables. The diet in the tropics tended to be based more heavily on plant foods vs animal products and generally speaking people in

the tropics are healthier and have more nutrition than those in a more northerly climate.

Here Are 4 Practical Tips To Boost Your Immune System

Tip #1

Keep your intake of saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol as low as possible as part of a well balanced nutrition based diet. Eat and drink enough of the foods that contain key nutrients (vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates, fat and water).

Popular processed foods are just full of unhealthy or non-nutrition ingredients. Whenever possible, eat whole, fresh, raw and (organic if possible) raw unprocessed foods – not the foods in the frozen boxed section of the supermarket. This is definitely an alternative health therapy compared to most people’s eating habits.

Tip #2

Get regular physical activity. This helps tremendously with relieving stress so that you body can absorb the nutrients properly.

Tip #3

Key Food Groups Are Essential – Make Sure You Get Them. The key is to eat a variety of foods including vegetables, fruits and whole-grain products lean meats, poultry, fish, beans and low-fat dairy

products and drink lots of purified water. Go easy on the salt, sugar, alcohol, saturated fat and trans fat.

Spanish researchers report that a daily serving of green leafy vegetables, rich in flavonoids and vitamins A and C, may cut your risk of lung cancer in half. But don’t think you can just pop a pill and get the same protective benefit.

This May Shock You

In a second study University of Washington scientists found that people taking vitamin supplements were just as likely to develop lung cancer as those not taking vitamins. The key here is the protective effect of the vegetable’s nutrients with their antioxidant contents – that’s really what is critical.

Supplements are fine (I take them too), however, fresh vegetables will do more for your health than any pill you can take.

In summary, eating a wide variety of fresh, whole (unprocessed), foods will do a whole lot more for your health and nutrition compared to monotonous diets based on processed foods.
