How can you expect your body to function at full tilt if you are feeding it inferior fuel?
If you are choosing refined carbohydrates and sugary soft drinks and candy, you are providing lots of calories and nothing in the way of good nutrition.
These go into your blood stream quickly, giving you that sugar high and the inevitable low that comes shortly thereafter.
When you eat complex carbohydrates such as whole grain breads and crackers and vegetables, your body gradually absorbs the energy and it is sustained over a period of time.
It is still imperative that you eat every three or four hours to keep a steady stream of fuel going into the brain.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Are They Really Beneficial?
If you would like to see some positive changes in many different parts of your body, try getting on a regime of Omega-3 Fatty Acids.
There has been an abundance of research that shows an increase in energy upon waking when the level of omega-3 is sufficient.
Brain functioning is sharper and clearer.
Particularly in the case of rheumatoid arthritis, experts are recommending omega-3 to reduce the symptoms and pain associated with the condition.
These omega-3 fatty acids are a specific type of PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid).
You can find the oil in fatty fish such as salmon and sardines or in linoleic acid found in plant-derived sources, including tofu, nuts, and flaxseed oil.
You can purchase omega-3 fatty acids as capsules, but you need to make certain you are purchasing molecularly distilled or pharmaceutical grade fish oil to avoid any contaminants.
For more information about the research on these Omega-3s, check out Dr. Barry Sears’ book called the Anti-Inflammation Zone.
Water Works Wonders!
With our brains being over 90% water, we cannot afford to let ourselves become even a little dehydrated.
When you start to feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated.
Get in the habit of drinking liquids throughout the day even when you do not feel thirsty.
You’ll find yourself more energetic and thinking more clearly!
