What is Homocysteine...?

You get homocysteine mostly from eating meat. High levels of it are linked to early development of heart disease.
Elevated homocysteine levels have also been identified as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Homocysteine is a sulfur-containing amino acid derived from methionine that is normally present in blood. Elevated homocysteine levels are thought to promote thrombogenesis, impair endothelial vasomotor function, promote lipid peroxidation, and induce vascular smooth muscle proliferation. Evidence from retrospective, cross-sectional, and prospective studies links elevated homocysteine levels with coronary heart disease and stroke.
Vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin B6 are involved in homocysteine metabolism. In the presence of insufficient vitamin B12, homocysteine levels can rise due to inadequate function of methionine synthase. Results from several randomized controlled trials indicate that combinations of vitamin B12 and folic acid supplements with or without vitamin B6 decrease homocysteine levels in people with vascular disease or diabetes and in young adult women. In another study, older men and women who took a multivitamin/multimineral supplement for 8 weeks experienced a significant decrease in homocysteine levels.

What makes RBC & DNA in our body & Neurological functions

Vitamin B12 is required for proper red blood cell formation, neurological function, and DNA synthesis .What harm can having too little of a vitamin do? A severe vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to deep depression, paranoia and delusions, memory loss, incontinence, loss of taste and smell, and more. The human body needs vitamin B12 to make red blood cells, nerves, and DNA, and to carry out other functions. The average adult should get 2.4 micrograms a day. Like most vitamins, B12 can't be made by the body. Instead, it must be gotten from food or supplements. And therein lies the problem: Some people don't consume enough vitamin B12 to meet their needs, while others can't absorb enough, no matter how much they take in. As a result, vitamin B12  deficiency is relatively common, especially among older people.


Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal products, including fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and milk products. Vitamin B12 is generally not present in plant foods, but fortified breakfast cereals are a readily available source of vitamin B12 with high bioavailability for vegetarians. Some nutritional yeast products also contain vitamin B12.

Critical knowledge about Minerals in our body

CALCIUM Builds and protects bones and teeth. Helps with muscle contractions and relaxation, blood clotting, and nerve impulse transmission. Plays a role in hormone secretion and enzyme activation. Helps maintain healthy blood pressure…. Main sources are….Yogurt, cheese, milk, tofu, sardines, salmon, fortified juices, leafy green vegetables, such as broccoli and kale… Adults absorb roughly 30% of calcium ingested, but this can vary depending on the source. Diets very high in calcium may increase the risk of prostate cancer.

CHLORIDE Balances fluids in the body. A component of stomach acid, essential to digestion.. ……….Main sources are….Salt (sodium chloride), soy sauce, processed foods….750 mg daily…

CHROMIUM Enhances the activity of insulin, helps maintain normal blood glucose levels, and is needed to free energy from glucose…. Main sources are...Meat, poultry, fish, some cereals, nuts, cheese…. Unrefined foods such as brewer's yeast, nuts, and cheeses are the best sources of chromium.

COPPER. Plays an important role in iron metabolism. Helps make red blood cells… Main sources are..Liver, shellfish, nuts, seeds, whole-grain products, beans, prunes… More than half of the copper in foods is absorbed.

FLUORIDE. Encourages strong bone formation. Keeps dental cavities from starting or worsening… Main sources are..Water that is fluoridated, toothpaste with fluoride, marine fish, teas… Harmful to children in excessive amounts.

IODINE. Part of thyroid hormone, which helps set body temperature and influences nerve and muscle function, reproduction, and growth. Prevents goiter and a congenital thyroid disorder… Main sources are…Iodized salt, processed foods, seafood… To prevent iodine deficiencies, some countries add iodine to salt, bread, or drinking water.

IRON. Helps hemoglobin in red blood cells and myoglobin in muscle cells ferry oxygen throughout the body. Needed for chemical reactions in the body and for making amino acids, collagen, neurotransmitters, and hormones… Main sources are…Red meat, poultry, eggs, fruits, green vegetables, fortified bread and grain products… Many women of childbearing age don't get enough iron.Women who do not menstruate probably need the same amount of iron as men.Because iron is harder to absorb from plants, experts suggest vegetarians get twice the recommended amount (assuming the source is food).

MAGNESIUM. Needed for many chemical reactions in the body Works with calcium in muscle contraction, blood clotting, and regulation of blood pressure. Helps build bones and teeth… Main sources are…Green vegetables such as spinach and broccoli, legumes, cashews, sunflower seeds and other seeds, halibut, whole-wheat bread, milk… The majority of magnesium in the body is found in bones. If your blood levels are low, your body may tap into these reserves to correct the problem…

MANGANESE. Helps form bones. Helps metabolize amino acids, cholesterol, and carbohydrates… ....Main sources are...Nuts, legumes, whole grains, tea. If you take supplements or have manganese in your drinking water, be careful not to exceed the upper limit. Those with liver damage or whose diets supply abundant manganese should be especially vigilant.

MOLYBDENUM. Part of several enzymes, one of which helps ward off a form of severe neurological damage in infants that can lead to early death…Main sources are..   Legumes, nuts, grain products, milk.. Molybdenum deficiencies are rare.

PHOSPHORUS. Helps build and protect bones and teethPart of DNA and RNA.Helps convert food into energy. Part of phospholipids, which carry lipids in blood and help shuttle nutrients into and out of cells…..Main sources are.. Wide variety of foods, including milk and dairy products, meat, fish, poultry, eggs, liver, green peas, broccoli, potatoes, almonds. Certain drugs bind with phosphorus, making it unavailable and causing bone loss, weakness, and pain..

POTASSIUM. Balances fluids in the body. Helps maintain steady heartbeat and send nerve impulses. Needed for muscle contractions. A diet rich in potassium seems to lower blood pressure. Getting enough potassium from your diet may benefit bones. Main sources are….Meat, milk, fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes. New recommendations (DRIs) for potassium are under development by the Institute of Medicine.Food sources do not cause toxicity, but high-dose supplements might.

SELENIUM. Acts as an antioxidant, neutralizing unstable molecules that can damage cells. Helps regulate thyroid hormone activity. Main sources are….Organ meats, seafood, walnuts, sometimes plants (depends on soil content), grain products. Researchers are investigating whether selenium may help reduce the risk of developing cancer.

SODIUM. Balances fluids in the body. Helps send nerve impulses. Needed for muscle contractionsImpacts blood pressure; even modest reductions in salt consumption can lower blood pressure. Main sources are..Salt, soy sauce, processed foods, vegetables. While experts recommend that people limit sodium intake to 2,400 mg, most Americans consume 4,000–6,000 mg a day.New recommendations (DRIs) for sodium are being developed by the Institute of Medicine.

SULFUR. Helps form bridges that shape and stabilize some protein structures. Needed for healthy hair, skin,& nails… Main sources are..Protein-rich foods, such as meats, fish, poultry, nuts, legumes. Sulfur is a component of thiamin and certain amino acids. There is no recommended amount for sulfur. Deficiencies occur only with a severe lack of protein.

ZINC. Helps form many enzymes and proteins and create new cellsFrees vitamin A from storage in the liver. Needed for immune system, taste, smell, and wound healing. When taken with certain antioxidants, zinc may delay the progression of age-related macular degeneration. Main sources are…Red meat, poultry, oysters and some other seafood, fortified cereals, beans, nuts. Because vegetarians absorb less zinc, experts suggest that they get twice the recommended requirement of zinc from plant foods…10 mg daily is normally needed daily

Know about Folic Acid and Vit.K.....

FOLIC ACID (folate, folacin) Vital for new cell creation, Helps prevent brain and spine birth defects when taken early in pregnancy; should be taken regularly by all women of child-bearing age since women may not know they are pregnant in the first weeks of pregnancy. Can lower levels of homocysteine and may reduce heart disease risk May reduce risk for colon cancer. Offsets breast cancer risk among women who consume alcohol.Main sources are.. Fortified grains and cereals, asparagus, okra, spinach, turnip greens, broccoli, legumes like black-eyed peas and chickpeas, orange juice, tomato juice. Many people don't get enough of this nutrient.Occasionally, folic acid masks a B12 deficiency, which can lead to severe neurological complications. That's not a reason to avoid folic acid; just be sure to get enough B12.
VITAMIN K (phylloquinone, menadione) Activates proteins and calcium essential to blood clotting. May help prevent hip fractures..Main sources are Cabbage, liver, eggs, milk, spinach, broccoli, sprouts, kale, collards, and other green vegetables.

Ways to Lose Weight Fast

ALEX: Most of my life has been marked with being overweight, inactive and unhealthy. I’ve been through several attempts to get my life and health in check — some of them more successful than others — but all of them were short-lived.

My problem was finding the motivation and commitment to see the entire process through. I’d often join weight-loss challenges and groups, but those endeavors never lasted.

One year I began a weight-loss attempt in December. I started at 265 pounds (my peak weight), and within a few months I had dropped to 220 pounds. But then I took what was intended to be a short break. Over the next couple of months I ballooned back up to 240 pounds. I decided I needed to get back into gear and dropped to 215 pounds.

ALEX: Just after my 31st birthday, I decided it was time for everything to finally change. I realized if I was ever going to be able to effectively encourage and influence others —including my kids — I had to be an example of what I preached. I had to make the journey and inspire others through results rather than empty words.

Of course, there was no reason to think this time was different than any of the others. In fact, now that I was into my 30s, it wasn’t going to be an easy task. The odds were certainly against me, but none of that mattered. Internally, I had finally made the decision to be determined.

ALEX: My wife has always been supportive of my health endeavors. In fact, she’s more than supportive. Rather than simply cheering me on, she joined me on my weight-loss journey. And together, we have lost over 100 pounds.

She is currently remaining active and working on toning up, all while encouraging my efforts to build lean mass.

ALEX: Walking was my favorite exercise before I was able to do anything more strenuous. At the time, even walking up a flight of stairs was a bit of a task. I would take my lunch to work, listen to a nutrition audiobook on my iPhone and pick a different route to walk around. I learned much of the surrounding area that I had previously been blind to and saw beauty in places I would have never otherwise cared to go.

Now I tend to favor lifting. It’s closer in line with my current goals of building lean muscle mass. At the end of the day, I can enjoy both feeling and seeing the results. The soreness I get after lifting lets me feel the progress, while fitting into smaller clothes gave me a great visual reference of my accomplishments.

ALEX: Most of the time I’m at the gym by 6 a.m. so I can work out before heading to work. I’d start my routine with 10 to 20 minutes of cardio and then head to the weights, working out different sets of muscle groups on different days. I’d finish up with 20 to 30 minutes in the sauna.

Currently, I’ve been reading about the benefits of eccentric weight training. The lifting is pretty taxing on your system, and the benefits are dependent on complete recovery, so I’ve reduced gym days to two or three days a week and try to stay relatively active otherwise.

ALEX: I generally begin my weekdays with a homemade protein shake at 7:30 a.m., which is right after my workout and before I head to work. I try to eat a snack at 10 a.m. to keep my appetite under control, especially on gym days. The snack can be anything from mixed nuts, olives, tuna, fruit or a bottle of fruit juice.

I take my lunch around noon. In an effort toward a healthy waistline and a healthy wallet, I try to bring lunch from home. Sometimes this will be leftover veggies from the previous night, while most often it’s a bagged salad with a side of protein. I follow with another snack (similar to the midmorning snack) around 3 p.m.

A typical dinner would run between 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. depending on my wife’s schedule. It usually consists of a salad with a side of protein and a sauteed vegetable side, such as mushrooms and spinach. Desserts are occasional and usually have to fall into whatever eating plan we’re currently prescribing to (such as ketogenic-friendly).

 What’s the range of calories I eat per day?

ALEX: I rarely count calories, and to be honest, it would be hard for me to give an estimate. I find that it’s easier for me to pay attention to what foods I eat, rather than the calorie content of them.

I use a lot of fats in my diet, which quickly adds up to high calories. But I’m more concerned with the type of fats and carbohydrates and how they make me feel the next day.

Much of my weight loss has come from limiting carbohydrates, especially the empty processed carbohydrates of little or no value. I generally avoid breads, pastas and sugary snacks at all costs. I also haven’t had a soda (regular or diet) in more than a year now.

When my goals are aligned with weight loss, I back off of starchy vegetables and legumes.

ALEX keeps an assortment of vegetables that can be easily cooked or eaten raw.

ALEX: First, I keep plenty of my protein-shake ingredients on hand. Worst case, no matter what my family is eating (like cereal for breakfast), I can always take refuge by having a protein shake.

Second, I try to keep an assortment of vegetables that can be easily cooked or eaten raw. If something takes too much time or is too difficult to prepare, chances are we’ll find easier — often unhealthy — options. Salad (a good mix of dark greens) is an essential at our house. Salads are easy to make, easy on the wallet and good for my health.

Third, I try not to have too many snacks or junk food on hand and instead stock up on fruits. My kids enjoy snacks on occasion, but keeping them to a minimum keeps my kids expectations of snacking realistic and also encourages them to munch on fruits as alternatives.

 My wife and I generally do one or two large shopping trips per month to stock up on staple pantry items. We then fill in as needed with smaller shopping trips for produce and other perishables throughout the week.

Keeping plenty of easy-to-prepare foods generally keeps the burden of timely planning and preparation to a minimum.

ALEX reads up on nutrition information.

ALEX: I’ve tried a banquet of various supplements at different times along this journey, including vitamins, fish oils, protein powder, pre-workout and recovery drink blends, milk thistle, maca root, matcha tea and more.

The thing I’ve found with supplements is that the results are small or negligible. They can be a tool to aid in a particular goal, but only when combined with proper nutrition and exercise.

ALEX..The biggest challenge I faced and continue to face is social scripting along with social environments.

Scripting from friends and family can be a big hurdle to tackle. Friends that expect certain behaviors like drinking alcohol or eating at certain places will promote those behaviors because that’s what they’re used to and comfortable with.

Family members uncomfortable with the significant changes of a loved one may wish for a return to the former behavior — sometimes knowingly, but often subconsciously. As an example, when my mother-in-law came to visit my wife and I after a combined 100-pound loss, she quickly congratulated me on my weight-loss success and continued to tell me how good I looked. I quickly tried to turn the congratulations towards my wife’s success, but my mother-in-law quickly retorted that my wife had lost too much weight and looked ill. Likewise, if you ask my mother, she’d look at my wife as a positive example, but would tell you that I’m too extreme and should be happy with the results I have rather than continue to aim toward additional health and fitness.

In addition to scripting, the habitual environments that we are a part of are largely responsible for continued behaviors. For example, I tried to give up smoking for years, but it wasn’t until I stopped going to the bar and hanging around other smokers that I was able to finally kick the habit.

 Notice the previous example includes people, places and times. If we expect to make permanent changes in our life, often we have to look around us and evaluate what factors and circumstances are feeding the decisions and behaviors that are preventing us from being able to make the change.

Whatever your goal is, read up on it! Books, articles, blogs and forums help to constantly remind you what you’re working toward. In addition, reading provides you with a wide variety of information you need for your journey.

The thing is, when you find a little success in one part of your life, you’re able to snowball it into other areas. By removing the stress and problems in one place, it leaves you with more energy to work on the other areas that you previously were too exhausted to think about.

Together, my wife and I in the last year have tackled our weight and health issues, our financial future, a lot of our time-management issues and some of our communication struggles. We have bettered our relationship, improved on our spiritual life, enhanced our family life and worked toward our career and education goals.

Our key goal is to not get comfortable and settle with the progress now, but to continue to build and invest in our future.

In fact, through the success we have had this past year, my wife has found confidence to further her role in our church, and I have found courage to embark on going back to school to finish the degree that I passed up on 13 years ago.

It’s hard to imagine what life could look like in another five years from now, but a year ago, I wouldn’t have even been able to dream my life would be like this now.

Superfood Spirulina

Spirulina is typically considered to be one of the world's most powerful superfoods.Spirulina is 100% natural and a highly nutritious micro salt water plant. It has more protein than meat, fish, poultry, and soybeans. It has the most beta-carotene of any food, and it has a full spectrum of ten mixed carotenoids. 

It contains all eight essential amino acids, and no fewer than ten non-essential amino acids. It is also rich in iron, vitamins A, E, and B, potassium, enzymes, minerals, phytonutrients, and beneficial fatty acids like DHA and GLA.

Spirulina is probably one of the most well-known dietary supplements to be commonly called a “superfood”. This is surely justified considering how it can be a single point source for a wide variety of vitamins and nutrients.

Without any additional fortification spirulina in its natural form contains about60% protein, 12 different vitamins and at least 8 minerals that are essential for the body. These include B complex vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin E, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium, and gamma linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid). 

The protein in Spirulina can be considered as a complete protein as it contains all the essential amino acids like Histidine, Leucine, Lysine etc.

How to remain slim and fit despite you are overeater

Why would you possibly want to overeat and make yourself sick? Most of us are reasonable people and know that we shouldn’t overeat. We have done it before, wished we hadn’t, and vowed never to do it again.
Nonetheless, time after time, we repeat the same mistakes. Are we weak-willed, morally corrupt, and self-destructive? Do we need years of therapy?
We are built to put on weight, and our bodies don’t like it very much when we don’t give them the calories they need.
To make matters worse, when you lose weight, only about half of what is lost is fat; the rest is valuable, Metabolically Active Muscle !!!It is better to have high metabolism rate compare to go on diet.... So speed up your metabolism by taking deep long breath all the time.
Yet when someone regains weight, it is nearly complete fat. Remember, muscle cells burn 70 times more calories than fat cells. Therefore yo-yo dieting makes you lose a big part of your metabolic engine.
We all know overweight people who say, “I don’t really eat that much, and I still can’t lose weight.” They aren’t lying. 
When most people go on a diet, they are generally actually making themselves fatter. Each time they diet, they lose muscle.
People should exercise more self-control. They should avoid overeating and reduce their intake of sugar-sweetened drinks and processed food. 
New discoveries in science prove that processed, sugar-, fat-, and salt-laden food—food that is made in a plant rather than grown on a plant—is biologically addictive.
Remember the old potato chip commercial with the tag line “Bet you can’t eat just one”? Bet you can’t imagine that kind of commercial for broccoli or apples. No one binges on those foods. Yet it’s easy to imagine a mountain of potato chips, a whole bag of cookies, or a pint of ice cream vanishing quickly in an unconscious, reptilian-brain eating frenzy. Broccoli is not addictive, but chips, cookies, ice cream, pizza, burger, all Chinese spice & oily food  and soda can become as addictive as any drug.
So dont eat much addictive food, eat organic and natural one.

Food is mere body building or repairing material but not source of energy

Food is not the source of vitality as it appeared to be, Man has to work from morning to evening , there is investment of energy . Since the mistaken concept prevalent in the society is that food gives energy,

Although my above statement is 100% true but it is very difficult for me to prove for a common people. So I will start from worldly known truth... while working you will consume energy and if you will not have proper food you may lose the weight. Its true but I ask you one question suppose you are very much tired exhausted up to extreme level, in that case which gives you energy ......Sleep or Food..??

Unknowingly you will say I need both , But firstly you will say without sleep you cant be fresh just by having enough food.

Actually work involves destruction of tissues and loss of vital power, While food replaces the lost tissues and vital power is replaced during deep sleep.

If food could restore vital power , there would not have been any need of sleep and then at the end of the day , when vitality is exhausted , one could have taken a hearty meal and continued working throughout the night.

I mean to say due to misconception we are addicted to food so much that overeating is a very normal practice in the society and much unneeded food is gulped down and the result is accumulation of impurities and obesity .

What is more important ---diet or exercise...?

As per my observation up to age of 30 I give importance 40% to Exercise and 60% to diet. But after age of 30, this role gets reversed , after 30 years of age importance of exercise becomes 60% and role of diet reduces compare to early age.

Eating a healthy balanced diet accompanied by regular exercise is essential in maintaining good health and well-being.

 Not only are these effective in preventing excess weight gain or in maintaining weight loss, but healthier lifestyles are also associated with improved sleep and mood. 

Physical activity particularly improves brain-related function and outcomes.While good diet helps in building muscles and bone and gaining strength.

  Exercise increases blood flow and oxygen levels in the brain. It also encourages the release of the brain chemicals (hormones) that are responsible for the production of cells in the hippo campus, the part of the brain that controls memory and learning.  This, in turn, boosts concentration levels and cognitive ability, 

The more you exercise, the more calories you burn.  In addition, the more muscle you develop, the higher your metabolic rate becomes, so you burn more calories even when you’re not exercising. .

Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health.

How to balance mind...?

People who have good emotional health are aware of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They have learned healthy ways to cope with the stress and problems that are a normal part of life. They feel good about themselves and have healthy relationships.

  • How can I improve my emotional health?

    First, try to recognize your emotions and understand why you are having them. Sorting out the causes of sadness, stress, and anxiety in your life can help you manage your emotional health. The following are some other helpful tips.
    Express your feelings in appropriate ways. If feelings of stress, sadness, or anxiety are causing physical problems, keeping these feelings inside can make you feel worse. It’s OK to let your loved ones know when something is bothering you. However, keep in mind that your family and friends may not be able to help you deal with your feelings appropriately. At these times, ask someone outside the situation, such as your family doctor, a counselor, or a religious advisor, for advice and support to help you improve your emotional health.
    Live a balanced life. Try not to obsess about the problems at work, school, or home that lead to negative feelings. This doesn’t mean you have to pretend to be happy when you feel stressed, anxious, or upset. It’s important to deal with these negative feelings, but try to focus on the positive things in your life too. You may want to use a journal to keep track of things that make you feel happy or peaceful. Some research has shown that having a positive outlook can improve your quality of life and give your health a boost. You may also need to find ways to let go of some things in your life that make you feel stressed and overwhelmed. Make time for things you enjoy.
    Develop resilience. People with resilience are able to cope with stress in a healthy way. Resilience can be learned and strengthened with different strategies. These include having social support, keeping a positive view of yourself, accepting change, and keeping things in perspective. A counselor or therapist can help you achieve this goal with cognitive behavioral theraphy (CBT). Ask your doctor if this is a good idea for you.
    Calm your mind and body. Relaxation methods, such as meditation, listening to music, listening to guided imagery CD’s or mp3’s, yoga, and Tai Chi are useful ways to bring your emotions into balance. Meditation is a form of guided thought. It can take many forms. For example, you may do it by exercising, stretching, or breathing deeply. Ask your family doctor for advice about relaxation methods.
    Take care of yourself. To have good emotional health, it’s important to take care of your body by having a regular routine for eating healthy meals, getting enough sleep, and exercising to relieve pent-up tension. Avoid overeating and don’t abuse drugs or alcohol. Using drugs or alcohol just causes other problems, such as family and health problems.

Causes of Imbalanced diet


The causes of poor dietary imbalances aren't limited to picking the wrong food or necessarily due to a lack of knowledge about what to eat. Some people may know exactly what to eat but still don't do it. Perhaps anyone has a binge eating disorder. On the other hand, any other person may be depressed and, as a potential consequence may be starving himself. In other words, psychiatric disorders can lead to imbalanced diets. Sometimes imbalanced diets can result from lack of availability of appropriate food or resources to obtain quality food as well.
For others, the imbalanced diet may stem from medical conditions. Some metabolic and endocrine conditions can severely curtail a person's general appetite or restrict their appetite to a select few foods, which can lead to a dietary imbalance.


As you can tell, the causes of an imbalanced diet range from just rushing for the taste of your tongue and lastly but not least -  a lack of good knowledge on what to eat to stay healthy to potentially serious medical disorders to lack of available quality food. The consequences, in all of these cases, can range from almost nothing to life-threatening, depending on the exact cause and/or duration of the imbalanced diet, of course.
