So happy with the improvement my mother-in-law has, after about 11 months of her taking E.Excel products ?

She looks significantly younger and much radiant in person, that I decided to take the latest photo and placed them together for comparison.  No filters involved!

Could you see the difference? ? She took: Millennium + Nutrifresh

In my course of Nutrition and Exercise Science_Part 3: Nutrition Adequacy

I was reading The Straits Times when I came across this headline – “Take steps to prevent falls“, dated 1 April 2019.

This reminded me of an assignment given to us on the topic of Nutrition Adequacy.  Similar to the article, it was targeting the elderly’s health.

It was stated in the article that the number of hip fractures in Singapore is around 2500 per year.  And 20% from this group dies within a year 🙁  This is quite a high percentage…

Due to their immobility, their muscles get wasted and they also get complications such as bed sores, pneumonia, urinary tract infections, constipation and many more; all which threaten their lives.

Other than preventing osteoporosis to avoid fractures and higher chance, hip fractures, it is also important to prevent falls.  Why do the elderly fall?  

Poor vision, muscle weakness are some reasons and chronic health conditions such as cardiovascular diseases with high or low blood pressure can cause dizziness.

Sarcopenia is a disease associated with muscle-loss with ageing.  With the loss of muscles, it is easy for them to fall.  To lower the rate of muscle-loss, strength (resistance) exercise, as well as sufficient protein intake is important.

“Protein is the king of muscle food. The body breaks it down into amino acids, which it uses to build muscle.” – https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/preserve-your-muscle-mass

However, again due to ageing, some begin to encounter difficulties chewing and/or swallowing of their food.  They tend to avoid fruits and vegetables, go for refined food such as white bread, rice, noodles that are easier to chew, but clearly in lack of vitamins and protein found in vegetables and legumes.

As one gets older, the calories needed is also less due to a drop in basal metabolism and lean muscle mass.  Their diet thus needs to be nutrient-rich.  Plant-based over animal-based are preferred as the former has no cholesterol, lesser calories and saturated fat.

Nutritional Immunology products such as Nutrifresh, Aromantic, Vegecolor become a very good wholefood beverages to supplement their diet for protein, vitamins, phytochemicals, fiber, antioxidants and calcium.

One can also refer to the Health Promotion Board – Dietary Guidelines for Elderly to understand more about elderly nutrition.

Last but not least, the elderly regard food as a family; the togetherness that equates to quality of life and eating well.

Prevent Liver Inflammation

Our liver gets inflamed almost immediately when we consume friedoily and, or spicy foods.

Prolong inflammation of the liver is not good as it can lead to fatty liver diseaseinsulin resistance with type 2 diabetescirrhosisfatigue, and even liver failure.

Unlike inflammation that occurs in other parts of our body where the pain will be felt, inflammation of the liver usually offers no signs and symptoms.  Thus prevention is of ultimate importance.

Presently, there’s no medical treatment for fatty liver disease. The good news is that most people can undo this damage by eating healthier and exercising more. Eating less animal products, eating more wholesome plant foods, more vegetables and fruits, such as blueberries, oriental raisin tree, Chinese mesona, and hawthorn, coupled with regular exercise, can be beneficial for the liver.

Phytotime contains the above mentioned ingredients. The way to drink Phytotime (Joy) is along with your meals!  When I drink it along with spicy meals, I find that my tongue doesn’t feel as ‘spicy’!  In other words, I can enjoy the spiciness of the food without feeling the burning sensation of my tongue!  I also drink it when I’m having my occasional favourite junk foods such as spicy potato/tapioca chips ?

Canada’s Food Guide dropping off milk and favors plant-based protein

It is getting apparent that plant-based protein is slowing emerging as a better choice over animal-based protein.

The journey of advocating plant-based protein over animal-based protein as a healthier option is indeed long and arduous! ?

An interesting extract from the article “You go to any grocery store in Europe, the dairy section is very small — you can barely find milk.”

Make good use of the Triflora tea-bag!

Triflora helps a lot in preventing headaches…

Perhaps due to its jasmine flowers, green tea, ginseng and chrysanthemum. It is good for respiratory and digestion too.

But do not simply throw away the used tea-bag after consuming!  

Some use it as fertilizers for their plants, some use it as lei cha 擂茶 (thunder tea) ingredients and for me, I use it to wash my cups and clean my hands!  I like the tea fragrance that lingers on the cup and on my hands ?

Note:
1) As fertilizers, you may or may not remove the tea-bag.
2) As thunder tea, cut open the tea-bag and use it in the thunder tea.  It is preservative and pesticide-free!
3) As a wash, I use it with the bag, like a sponge.  Yes it does remove mild oil too!  Discard after a few use.

O-Seed unexpected benefits my hair and nails

I only started taking <O-Seed> two months ago (3 capsules once a day) and I started to notice that my nails grow faster than usual.  I don’t keep fingernails and I usually cut them to the shortest possible every month.  Since last month, I started to notice that my nails grow at a faster rate than normal; usually, it takes about a month for my nails to grow to the length that I would need to cut them, but now it takes only about 2 weeks to grow to the same length.  Same for my hair, I started to notice a lot of new hair growth on my head as well.

These are unexpected benefits because I started to take <O-Seed> for more Omega-3 to counter off the excess Omega-6 in my daily diets and hence to reduce my risk of cardiovascular disease.  As I’m already in my 40s, I didn’t expect my hair and nails to still grow at this rate!  Now I can put aside my worry of baldness and age gracefully 🙂

Good antibacterial hand wash

We know that we can get infected with virus and bacterial from uncleaned hands.  With babies keep putting their tiny fingers into their mouth, adults that will land their hands on their own eyes and mouth, a good habit of regular washing hands is thus of extreme important.

With this, a good hand wash that is effective, not leaving our hands peeled, dry and itchy, is necessary.

The premium Antibacterial Handwash contains oxyginberry complex, peach leaf, jojoba leaf, licorice leaf and gardenia tahitensis flower. It is highly effective against germs, various fungi and viruses. It leaves a long lasting protection layer against bacteria. Long term use of it will neither affect its efficacy in killing and inhibiting bacteria nor lead to drug-resistance.

This antibacterial handwash can be used on any parts of our body.  It is mild, and yet effective. A mother uses this as a baby wash to bathe her baby.  When the baby caught HFMD, the blisters only appeared under the baby’s feet!  The reason was when the mother bathes the baby, the antibacterial handwash was used on everywhere except the soles of the baby’s feet! ?

Vegecolor & Freeze Drying

An ingenious product that has 28 different vegetables in a serving!  So convenient..just add the powder in your food or stir it as a drink!!

The following shows the ingredients in one sachet.

I attempted tang yuan using Vegecolor and they are nice! I mixed the vegecolor with the flour, formed the dough and boiled them. It’s not too difficult. I didn’t take any photos of the process. The following was what I captured when it was done by another independent distributor. The tang yuan can be added as toppings over red bean soup.

You can be as creative as you want with Vegecolor, especially when your little ones are picky with vegetables. Add them to your recipes!

Over your dishes
Bake with your muffins
Bake with your bread
Over porridge
With rice in sushi and as toppings

Note: The consumption of different colors of vegetables are important as they contain different types of phytochemicals.  Phytochemicals found in plants possess anticancer capabilities.  Each type of phytochemical can block one of the processes that leads to cancer. 

Many people have the impression that all health supplements contain preservatives.  They are not totally wrong.  Majority of the retail health supplements do contain preservatives, as indicated on their bottles/boxes.  It is rare to find preservatives-free supplements.

Nutritional Immunology products are without preservatives and additives. How is that so?

The company uses – Freeze-drying technique to eliminate the use of preservatives. Not only preservatives are not needed, freeze-drying allows the freshness of a harvest to be conserved.

Freeze-drying is not a new technology and has been around for decades.  One may do an Internet search to understand how this technique works.  Rare to find a health supplement manufacturer using this technology. After all, it is a time-consuming and expensive process.

Some extracts from wikipedia 
“The primary purpose of freeze drying within the food industry to extend the shelf-life of the food while maintaining the quality.  Freeze-drying is known to result in the highest quality of foods amongst all drying techniques because structural integrity is maintained along with preservation of flavors.  Because freeze drying is expensive, it is used mainly with high-value products.  Examples of high-value freeze-dried products are seasonal fruits and vegetables because of their limited availability…”

“The primary purpose of freeze drying within the food industry to extend the shelf-life of the food while maintaining the quality. Freeze-drying is known to result in the highest quality of foods amongst all drying techniques because structural integrity is maintained along with preservation of flavors. Because freeze drying is expensive, it is used mainly with high-value products. 

“Shelf-life extension is a result from low processing temperatures in conjunction with rapid transition of water through sublimation. With these processing conditions, deterioration reactions, including nonenzymatic browning, enzymatic browning, and protein denaturation, are minimized. When the product is successfully dried, packaged properly, and placed in ideal storage conditions the foods have a shelf life of greater than 12 months.”
