Did You Know – 03/20/2017


1. Believe it or not, beer has some nutritional value in the form of antioxidants, B vitamins, electrolytes and carbohydrates. All of these attributes can play a role in recovery. Antioxidants help to reduce oxidative stress (which is induced by inflammation), B vitamins aid in metabolism functions, electrolytes assist in fluid balance and proper cell function, and carbohydrates replenish energy. This of course is recommended for a light-to-moderate consumption.
Non-alcoholic beer has about half the calories and potassium. Due to its lower amount of alcohol (typically about 0.5% alcohol by volume), non-alcoholic beer provides the benefits of beer without the potential for alcohol’s negative effects.
Always avoid binge drinking after races because we know that’s not good for your body.


2. Just another reason to love Peanut butter. It can cure hiccups! United States study spent five years studying hiccups and ways to stop them. The best remedy they came up with was to slowly eat a spoonful of peanut butter. Apparently it spreads a coat on your throat and you concentrate on chewing, your breathing pattern stabilizes and the hiccups disappear.

3. To clean a pearl necklace, fill a large jar with rice then bury the pearls in the rice. Put on the lid and shake for 10 minutes.

4. That if your dog refuses to have its teeth brushed – smear a little canine toothpaste on its favorite chew toy or rope and let it chew to its hearts content. (do not use human toothpaste)

5. That cheese could be the secret to a longer lifespan. A study published in the journal Nature Medicine suggests that eating aged cheese containing the compound spermidine could lead to better heart health and overall improvement of bodily functions. Apparently the research not solidified yet but ‘YAHOO’ for me cause I love cheese especially the old stuff

The Baruch Question

I dabble in the stock market a little. I am not as successful as I would like to be, but I don’t play with too much because it is a field that I don’t profess to be an expert.

I read a great short story the other day about a man called Bernard Baruch. Bernard, a billionare investor by today’s standards, had a philosophy. Reading about it gave me a wow moment. What great Questions. It will help you make some decisions about your portfolio a lot simpler. You may own shares that you don’t sell because you paid a lot more than what they are worth and you don’t want to realize the loss, or you think that maybe they will come back in value. I have a couple of stocks like that and the chances of them making a profit for me are very slim. I think it is time I asked some of these questions…

The Baruch Question

Bernard Baruch was one of the most successful stock investor of all time. He was always one step ahead and foresaw the stock market crash of 1929, sold his stock at peak price and made huge profits during the great depression. He died a very rich man.

The secret of his success was:

Every morning he would check to see what his stocks were selling for. Then he would then ask himself:

a. “Would I buy this stock today?” If the answer were “yes,” he would hold on to the stock. In some cases he would buy more. If the answer was “no,” then he would sell it.

b. He did not ask, “what did I pay for this stock?” or “how long have I held it?”

c. He did not ask, “Can I justify a loss?”

d. He asked, “If I didn’t own this stock would it be a good investment today?”

e. He asked himself, “Would I buy it now for the first time?”

To me they were very intelligent questions and questions that led him to great success.

High-fructose corn syrup’s big fat secret

Is your family suffering from being overweight or other health problems?

If so, have a good look at the fructose consumption in your diet. The picture below gives you an idea where to look on labels to see if the product you are about to buy has fructose, or corn syrup, or both in it. I choose not to buy products with these ingredients. They are often found in juices and food that is advertise as being healthy. I am a label reader when I go grocery shopping, I always have been, as I am curious what is in the product and how healthy it really is.

If everyone just took a few seconds to read the labels of what they are buying, I am sure you will find that surprisingly your family will start to loose weight with very little effort.

PRINCETON (US)—All sweeteners are not equal when it comes to weight gain. Rats with access to high-fructose corn syrup gained significantly more weight than those with access to table sugar, even when their overall caloric intake was the same, new research shows.

Long-term consumption of high-fructose corn syrup also led to abnormal increases in body fat, especially in the abdomen, and a rise in circulating blood fats called triglycerides.

The Princeton University researchers say the work sheds light on the factors contributing to obesity trends in the United States.

Some people have claimed that high-fructose corn syrup is no different than other sweeteners when it comes to weight gain and obesity, but our results make it clear that this just isn’t true, at least under the conditions of our tests,” says psychology professor Bart Hoebel, who specializes in the neuroscience of appetite, weight and sugar addiction. “When rats are drinking high-fructose corn syrup at levels well below those in soda pop, they’re becoming obese—every single one, across the board. Even when rats are fed a high-fat diet, you don’t see this; they don’t all gain extra weight.”

In results published online by the journal Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Behavior, the researchers reported on two experiments investigating the link between the consumption of high-fructose corn syrup and obesity.

The first study showed that male rats given water sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup in addition to a standard diet of rat chow gained much more weight than male rats that received water sweetened with table sugar, or sucrose, in conjunction with the standard diet. The concentration of sugar in the sucrose solution was the same as is found in some commercial soft drinks, while the high-fructose corn syrup solution was half as concentrated as most sodas.

The second experiment—the first long-term study of the effects of high-fructose corn syrup consumption on obesity in lab animals—monitored weight gain, body fat, and triglyceride levels in rats with access to high-fructose corn syrup over a period of six months.

Compared to animals eating only rat chow, rats on a diet rich in high-fructose corn syrup showed characteristic signs of a dangerous condition known in humans as the metabolic syndrome, including abnormal weight gain, significant increases in circulating triglycerides and augmented fat deposition, especially visceral fat around the belly.

Male rats in particular ballooned in size: Animals with access to high-fructose corn syrup gained 48 percent more weight than those eating a normal diet. In humans, this would be equivalent to a 200-pound man gaining 96 pounds.

“These rats aren’t just getting fat; they’re demonstrating characteristics of obesity, including substantial increases in abdominal fat and circulating triglycerides,” says Princeton graduate student Miriam Bocarsly. “In humans, these same characteristics are known risk factors for high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, cancer, and diabetes.”

The researchers note that they do not know yet why high-fructose corn syrup fed to rats in their study generated more triglycerides, and more body fat that resulted in obesity.

“Our findings lend support to the theory that the excessive consumption of high-fructose corn syrup found in many beverages may be an important factor in the obesity epidemic,” Avena says.

In the future, the team intends to explore how the animals respond to the consumption of high-fructose corn syrup in conjunction with a high-fat diet—the equivalent of a typical fast-food meal containing a hamburger, fries and soda—and whether excessive high-fructose corn syrup consumption contributes to the diseases associated with obesity. Another step will be to study how fructose affects brain function in the control of appetite.

The research was supported by the U.S. Public Health Service.

Victory: The strangest Secret in the World.

I have just had to prepare a speech for Toastmasters and I chose “Victory”. A subject near and dear to my heart.

I love to conquer any challenges that come my way. Some I do, some I don’t. The ones I don’t succeed with, I perceive as a lesson and move on.

Anyway in my research I came across this video which I have heard before. It Inspired me before and did again. I thought you may also enjoy listening to it. You may have heard it before, I am sure you will agree it is good to listen to again.

Secret Superfoods: Who Knew?

health wellness articles - apple image

“Everything in Moderation”. Thats what I believe. This article is an important one. Some nutritionist would have you eliminate most of these foods in this article believing that they will be harmful to your health. The fact is if you don’t include these foods in your diet you miss out on a lot of very nutritious vitamins and minerals that are important to your wellbeing. Like I said “Everything in Moderation”


Special from Bottom Line’s Daily Health News
May 17, 2007
If I had a dollar for every time the conventional wisdom on nutrition has shifted gears, I’d be a rich woman. Remember butter? And how about eggs? First they’re evil, now they’re our best friends. I’ve watched the experts flip recommendations on so many foods I’ve lost count. Some of these foods suffered from bad reputations for years, but are now back on our buddy lists… others were unsung heroes, always good for us but never getting proper credit. I think it is a good idea to periodically revisit some of our cherished beliefs about foods and health, so I spoke with Jonny Bowden, whose recent book, The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth (Fair Winds Press) has some surprising entries — and some surprising omissions.
