This Carbohydrate Type Proven Success Control Weight Loss

Recent studies of certain types of carbohydrates called resistant starch indicate that type of carbohydrate is a type of carbohydrate that can control weight. Resistant starch is a carbohydrate that is resistant to digestion.

Reported by Time, resistant starch cuts the digestive tract directly into the colon for metabolic processes. There, resistant starch is fermented and converted into short chain fatty acids, which the body burns as energy. Resistant starch also serves as a powerful prebiotic, as a food for intestinal bacteria in the colon.

Resistant starch is found in various foods such as nuts and seeds, as well as raw potatoes and unripe bananas. Products made from these foods, including peanut flour, potato starch, tapioca flour and red rice flour, also include resistant starch.

In all its forms, starch proved to help people to control their weight. In a Journal of Nutrition study published in October 2015, a professor in Skidmore College's health and sports sciences department, Paul Arciero and his team cooked a series of four pancake breakfasts for 70 women. Four pancakes are made from ordinary starch, starch plus whey protein, resistant starch which is a tapioca-based starch that is modified to be resistant, and the starch is resistant to whey protein.

Sports Diligent Men Produce Smart Descendants

It has been widely known the habit of diligent exercise will bring a positive impact on the health of the body. In addition to healthy body, exercise can also be a means of stress relief. Sports even contribute to improve intelligence.

Physical activity is able to strengthen the connection between neurons in the hippocampus, an important part of the brain that affects the ability to remember and learn something. The stronger the connection of neurons, the sharper the person thinks. Exercise also affects how genes work and change to be inherited to their offspring. This process is called epigenetics.

A group of scientists from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases at Gottingen studied whether men's intelligence influenced exercise habits could be passed on to their children. They conducted experiments using white rats placed in a cage with a wheel rim.

In the cage, the rats fill their time with the physical activity of playing the wheel. As a control, a group of male rats was placed in another cage without a wheel-drive wheel. After living in each cage for 10 weeks, male rats were mated to female rats to produce a new generation.

Male rats who are diligent in playing the wheel turn out to have better neuron connections than mice that lack physical activity. The result is that they have better cognitive abilities than control mice. Interestingly again, children born from marriage with active male rats active activity inherited inherit intelligence.

Benefits of Broccoli for Immune System

Who does not like broccoli? This one vegetable is highly recommended in your dinner plate if you want to be healthy and have an optimal immune system.

Broccoli should not be removed from daily cooking. According to the author of The Four Pillar Plan Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, there is even one vegetable that really needs to be eaten. That is, broccoli.

"Broccoli is a lifesaver," wrote Chatterjee, who is also a correspondent of the BBC Doctor in the House program, excerpted from the Independent on Monday (14/5).

The benefits of consuming green cabbage began in the gut. Dr Chatterjee explains, after traveling through the small intestine, it will develop from there. Once the fiber from the broccoli is digested and reaches the colon, broccoli will make the fatty acid decrease.

The condition will lead to healthy intestinal bacteria, intestinal health, and improve immune health. As a marker of overall health, intestinal health is very important because it has a huge influence not only on the digestive function.

"Not only in our digestive function, but also in the mood and function of our brain and also can affect weight and potential joint pain," said Dr. Chatterjee.
