It is strange to think that we can often take better care of our car than we do of our bodies and nutrition.
We normally get our car serviced regularly, change the oil, filters, etc and this helps it go much better and last longer. Our bodies work in a similar way.
Yet what are we doing to make sure that they work at their best?
You wouldn’t put dirty petrol into your car and expect it to go well.
Yet how is our own internal fuel? Are we fuelling our bodies with the required nutrition and healthy foods/fuel that allow us to operate at our best?
Taking the Easy Way Out
Unfortunately for many of us, we may be taking the easy route of eating too much junk food, fast food or overly processed food.
According to the World Health Organization, globally there has been an increased intake of energy-dense foods that are high in fat and sugars.
While convenience-wise this is great, what is it doing for our body or mind? These are foods we can handle in small quantities but we were never meant to live on them.
Real Food for Real People
The body functions better when we eat foods as near to their natural state as possible:
Fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, naturally reared meat, wild fish, nuts, seeds, wholegrain bread, dairy products etc.
These foods help generate health in the body.
If you are out of shape, have poor energy, lacking in nutrition and drive etc, try including more of these natural foods in your diet.
In particular, people should be conscious of their protein intake.
Heart Health Support
Protein is so important in our lives. It helps form a shapely body, contributes to bone health and is vital to our well-being.
It is also the most filling of the 3 macronutrients (Protein, Fat and Carbohydrates).
This makes it especially important to those of us who want to get or stay in shape.
Athletes are very conscious of their protein intake and nutrition as are many health-conscious people who are into healthy ageing.
Yet what would you think if I said it can also help lower your bad cholesterol and contribute to your heart health.
This would make it a very special valuable protein.
It would also make it particularly interesting to people who are conscious of their shape and heart health.
A New Dimension in Protein
Lipo-Clear from Tony Quinn Educohealth is a dairy-based protein drink that also has some added ingredients that include Oat Beta Glucans (a special type of EU approved soluble fibre that has been shown to help lower cholesterol) and Vitamins D and K2-7.
Essentially what Vitamin K2-7 does is it helps the calcium you are taking in go to your bones instead of building up in other unwanted areas.
Vitamin D (often called the sunshine vitamin) is also added to further improve calcium absorption. This can be especially useful during the low-sunlight, dark days of winter. It also contributes to: the normal function of the immune system and maintenance of normal bones, normal muscle function and normal teeth.
Each serving also contains over 20gms of quality casein protein.
It is easy to use. Just add some water and shake and you have a quick snack.
A Tasty Treat
However, even the best of things can prove to be an obstacle if they don’t taste good.
This isn’t the case with the Lipo-Clear as it’s flavoured with almost 3gms of dried fresh Raspberries making it probably the tastiest Protein drink you have ever tried.
Absolutely delicious when made on water, coconut water, oat or almond milk.
Once tasted, you will know why it is such a firm favourite with Tony Quinn Educohealth customers.
