O-Mega Fun: Omega-3 101

omega_3_2Whether you have seen the word ‘Omega-3’ at the grocery store or read about it in an article (such as this one!), this word may not be new to you. These fats are often referred to as PUFA’s and considered to be “good fats” with an array of health benefits and we are constantly reminded that they are good for our health. But what exactly are these fats and how do they contribute to our health?

Omega-3 is the word given to a whole family of essential fats or “fatty acids” which serve important roles in our body. The parent omega-3 is called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is an essential fatty acid for humans meaning that we need to get it from our diet since we cannot make it in our bodies. If you can picture it, from the smallest level of a cell in our body, omega-3s are embedded in the cell membranes, outside and inside the cell, being particularly rich in the cells of our brain, eyes, and heart.1 These fats play a structural role in our membranes and are used to provide important signal substances that balance and regulate our immune system. This in turn helps to ensure that our bodies inflammatory response remains controlled.1,2 Simply said omega-3s are absolutely vital to the structure and working of our bodies.Read More

How to Fill the Gap with Fiber

farmers_market_fruitIt seems that very often we are told about the importance of having fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in a balanced diet to obtain needed vitamin and minerals. With all the benefits of these foods, we forget that these foods also contain fiber which is an important part of our everyday diet. Fiber can help you in multiple ways. It can help you with controlling your weight by making you feel full for a longer time and it can also help you with digestion as it aids with the movement of food through your digestive system.1 Foods with higher fiber amounts may make you feel full longer as they are more satisfying.1 Consider what may make you feel full longer—drinking a glass of apple juice or eating an apple whole. A whole apple may make you full longer because of the fiber in the apple and in its skin. Also, with enough fluid, fiber can help glide food through your system more quickly, helping you with issues of constipation.1 Some types of fiber provide the benefits of lowering levels of blood sugar and blood glucose, which in turn, can lower your risk of getting diabetes or heart disease.2 Fiber is a powerhouse for providing benefits to your digestive and heart health and overall wellbeing.Read More

The yellow pigment curcumin from the spice turmeric is widely used in traditional Indian cuisine and is now increasingly popular as a dietary supplement.

Glucosamine: The Basic Building Block Of Cartilage

full_motion_runGlucosamine is an amino sugar (a combination of an amino acid – glutamine, and a sugar – glucose) normally found in healthy cartilage. It is synthesized by many cells in our body but is concentrated in joint cartilage. Glucosamine functions as the basic building block of cartilage by first being a basic building block of glycosaminoglycans (GAG) which themselves make up very large structures known as proteoglycans. Without adequate glucosamine, proteoglycans synthesis by chondrocytes would shut down, and this in turn would cause the synthesis of cartilage to stop. Glucosamine makes up 50% of one of the most important GAGs, hyaluronic acid, which acts as a “glue” that holds cartilage matrix together. Hyaluronic acid is also a critical component of synovial fluid, which lubricates joints and keeps cartilage smooth and healthy.Read More
