The Importance of Good Nutrition
The premise is that when someone says ‘sugars’, table sugar is thought of by most men and women, or what is chemically known as sucrose. Table sugar is really a combination of fructose and glucose, two distinct sugars. The sugars that I am talking about are simple sugars called monosaccharides. They’re critical to virtually all basic metabolic processes within the human body. When consumed in their vine-ripened state, these little nutrients can be located in several fruits, vegetables, and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are coated with fertilizers and pesticides.
While it’s still green, the produce is picked. The nutrients in the ground never have an opportunity to enter the vegetable or fruit. Studies at Harvard show that the nutrient amounts of phytochemicals like lycopene in tomatoes are a flat line chart compared to amounts shown in vine-ripened tomatoes. It’s simple to see how our nation’s rate of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and autoimmune disorders have skyrocketed since the coming of TV dinners and foods in the 50’s. But when is the last time you ate?
Rice and wheat possess the bran and nutrients stripped off from the processing. It is so bad that the U.S. Government needed to create firms add the compound form of the nutrients back into breads, cereals, and such. ‘Fortified’ means replacing lots. But more is removed than replaced. More than a dozen critical nutrients are processed out of cereals and breads while just four to six are replenished chemically.
