NUTRITION FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

nutrition-informationThere is no doubt that if I stopped random people on the street and asked them the keys to being healthy they would either say “diet” or “exercise”. Intuitively, we all know that eating the right foods and being active increases the wellness and longevity of the average human body. Unfortunately, it is true that in the world today, most people neither eat top quality foods nor engage in physical activity on a regular basis. In fact, a recent study showed that the average obese woman get less than 1 HOUR of exercise per year and obese men average less than 3 hours per year!!!

While studies like this are shocking, the truth is that most people don’t take their health seriously until something shakes up their world and pushes them toward change. Once pushed to change, through either a health scare or bad news of some sort, people generally react in one of two ways — they either take charge of their life and try to reverse previous bad choices and overcome the results of those bad choices…or they give up and wait patiently to die.

We hope that you are here because you are fighting for your health and wellness and want to either improve or maintain your current levels of health.   One thing is for certain, the steps you take today determine your health in the future.  As we now know, our bodies produce stem cells throughout our lives.  However, many factors can severely limit stem cell production.  The primary factors are age, poor nutrition, illness, and the use harmful substances (i.e. tobacco products).

The focus of the NUTRITION section of StemCell101.com will be to guide you toward nutritional choices that will work in conjunction with Stem-Kine supplementation to help your body optimize stem cell production and keep you healthy whilst also slowing the natural aging process we all experience.  If you follow these nutritional suggestions, you will find that not only will you feel better, but you will also have more energy and find it easier to remain (or become) height/weight proportional.  Then, the rest is also in your hands.  It is up to you to do the other things that help maintain health — such as take Stem-Kine daily, exercise 4-6 times per week including strength training and cardio conditioning, abstain from harmful chemicals such as nicotine, get plenty of sleep, drink sufficient water, etc.

Nutritional Guidelines for Optimal Stem Cell Production

stemcell-nutritionIf you have read anything in the past decade about health and how to win the war on aging, you are familiar with the concepts of antioxidants and free radicals.

Oxidation is a natural process that occurs with every cell in nature as it interacts with oxygen.  For example, oxidation is what causes cars to rust, food to spoil, and the paper cut on your finger to turn red and become inflamed. Basically, because of the process of oxidation, we can say that every minute of everyday, your body is waging a serious war. This war is against disease, infection, and the natural aging process as these are all situations in which your body must fight to remain healthy and not produce or give into free radicals. Free radicals are cells which have been damaged in the war and are “free” because they are missing a molecule.  Because they are incomplete, they attack healthy cells to try and replace their missing molecule.  In the process, they can actually damage the DNA of the healthy cell causing it then to reproduce in an unhealthy, mutated form.  This is the basis of sickness as well as premature aging.

For over a decade, the number one buzz word in winning the war against free radicals has been “Antioxident”. Antioxidants are vital nutrients found in whole food sources and include Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Carotenoids, and Selenium. These nutrients protect healthy cells from the attacks by free radicals and help your body fight diseases, infections, and aging.  Obviously, your body cannot synthesize these nutrients on its own so you must consume them daily for optimal health. Antioxidents are found in fresh, raw fruits, vegetables, grains, and nuts.

But Antioxidents and their war on free radicals are only part of the story.  The reason that antioxidents are so successful in helping people win the war on aging and maintain good health are because they also enhance the natural ability of the human body to create Stem Cells!  As research has shown, stems cells created naturally in the adult human body –called Adult Stem Cells — are the basis for all regenerative processes because they have the ability to replicate themselves and to replace and/or repair other tissues throughout the body.

Therefore, the first key to Stem Cell production through nutrition includes incorporating a wide variety of fresh fruits, veggies, and nuts into one’s diet.  At the heart of this suggestion is eating not 3, not 4, not even 5 servings of veggies and fruits per day.  No, the recommended daily intake now stands at SEVEN full servings of fresh vegetables and fruits per day.  While this seems daunting to some, it might help to remember that this can easily be accomplished through “smoothies” and “juicing”.  As added proof of the value of seven servings, long-term European studies showed that people who ate at least seven servings of veggies and fruits per day were highly unlikely to suffer from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other medical issues that are related to diet and lifestyle.

The second key to Stem Cell production is correct supplementation including Stem-Kine which has been formulated specifically to increase stem cell production in the body.  Other supplementation is based on nutrients found in nature that wouldn’t otherwise make it into someone’s diet no matter how healthy they were being.  Some of these special supplements include Spirulina, Olive Leaf Extract, and Aloe Vera.  ((please see our Product Page for details on these))

The third key for maximizing stem cell production in your body is to avoid processed “food-like” products and choose whole, real foods instead.  For example, instead of white bread to make toast, a better choice would be a whole sprouted grain bread.  Another example would be eliminating “sports drinks” and drinking coconut water infused with fresh fruit juice instead.

The final key to help your body increase production of stem cells is to avoid harmful chemicals such as high fructose corn syrup, aspartame, sucralose, and all those crazy preservatives and ingredients they pack into processed foods which bear no resemblance to real, whole food.  Of course, it also helps if you abstain from harmful substances such as nicotine and an over-indulgence of alcohol and refined sugars which can lower your immune system and sap your body of it’s vital energy.
