2. Cardioplen xl Enjoy more sunshine.

Most of the population, cardioplen xl both children and adults, cardioplen xl suffer from insufficient or deficient vitamin D levels.  Blame an indoor society coupled a near-paralyzing fear of skin cancer that has kept people covered up and slathered in carcinogenic sunscreens.  Yes, cardioplen xl many sunscreens contain carcinogenic compounds.  Kinda defeats the purpose, cardioplen xl doesn’t it? Slathering yourself in cancer-causing chemicals to, cardioplen xl well, cardioplen xl avoid cancer?  As a result of an indoor lifestyle coupled with a solar-phobic health community, cardioplen xl our nation’s vitamin D levels are suffering.  Low vitamin D levels are linked to cognitive dysfunction, cardioplen xl depression, cardioplen xl autoimmune disorder, cardioplen xl cancer and heart disease.  Instead, cardioplen xl cut yourself a little slack and go outside – dare I say it – without sunscreen.

4. Cardioplen xl Eat more fat: butter, cardioplen xl lard, cardioplen xl tallow and olive oil.

Fat nourishes our bodies just as it nourished the bodies of our ancestors.  Examinations into traditional peoples indicates that most traditional societies reveled in fat – with some peoples consuming up to 80% of their daily calories from fat alone.  Vitamins A, cardioplen xl D, cardioplen xl E and K are fat-soluble; that is, cardioplen xl your body needs fat to properly absorb, cardioplen xl metabolize and utilize these critical nutrients.  Without wholesome fats, cardioplen xl your body is operating at a nutritional loss.  Moreover, cardioplen xl you’ll miss their unctuous quality and the fullness of flavor they lend to the dishes you produce in your kitchen.

7. Cardioplen xl If you eat grain, cardioplen xl always sprout, cardioplen xl sour or soak it first.

If you choose to eat grain, cardioplen xl always sprout, cardioplen xl sour or soak it first.  Grain is not an essential or important aspect of a wholesome, cardioplen xl nourishing diet.  There’s nothing you can find in grain that you can’t find in greater quantities elsewhere.  While a crusty loaf of sourdough bread dipped in a fragrant olive oil might be a nice treat, cardioplen xl it isn’t essential.  Grain should be kept to a minimum, cardioplen xl if eaten at all.  If you choose to eat grain, cardioplen xl this year make sure to prepare it properly in accordance with traditional, cardioplen xl time-honored methods.  You see, cardioplen xl whole gain contains an antinutrient called phytic acid which binds up minerals preventing their full absorption.  Which means all those whole grain cereals, cardioplen xl crackers and cookies aren’t doing you or your family a lick of good.  The effects of these antinutrients can be mitigated by souring, cardioplen xl sprouting or soaking which combines whole grain with warmth and slightly acidic solution.  This process activates phytase, cardioplen xl a food enzyme, cardioplen xl that effectively neutralizes phytic acid rendering the whole grain more digestible and its nutrients better absorbed.  Make the effort, cardioplen xl in the new year, cardioplen xl to sour, cardioplen xl sprout or soak your grain.

To Do: The next batch of bread you make should be sourdough, cardioplen xl and plan meals ahead so you have time to properly prepare your grain for optimal nutrition.  Give sprouting a try.  If you don’t have time to soak or sour your grains, cardioplen xl use sprouted grain flour (see sources) instead.
