The Nutrients You Ever Need

Here are some important nutrients that you need the most:

A plays a crucial role in vision and may protect against some cancers.

B1, B2 and B3 help your body process carbs and protein.

B12 may reduce your risk of osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s.

C keeps skin supple and helps your body absorb iron.

Calcium helps maintain strong bones, thus protecting against osteoporosis, and may aid in weight loss. In one study, people who ate three servings a day of low-fat yogurt lost 60 percent more fat than those who didn’t eat dairy.

D aids your body’s calcium absorption.

E helps your brain and eyes stave off disease. It may also decrease the risk of death from heart disease.

Folic acid may lower blood pressure, and taking it before conception and while pregnant can slash birth-defect risk by as much as 70 percent. Note: This is the only nutrient your body actually absorbs better from a pill than from food.

Iron combats fatigue and increases blood circulation.

Zinc is necessary for maintaining your sense of smell and healing wounds. Some studies have found that taking zinc can shorten the duration of the common cold, too.

#1 Christmas Healthy Eating Tips You Must Observe

It’s easy to pig yourself out on Christmas.

Here is the number 1 rule you must observe:

Eat in moderation

Enjoy eating a bit of everything if you can. There’s no food that you should avoid altogether, provided that you don’t over do it.

Get yourself a slice of rich fruit cake, a chocolate reindeer, a serving of crisp-skinned turkey and a small glass of eggnog. You’ll be doing fine.

If you keep it to a reasonable serving size and confine the feasting to a couple of days, it’s very unlikely you’ll be gaining pounds in just one Christmas day.
