Did you know that over 75% of Americans are deficient in calcium? That’s everyone, not just omnivores. But if you are a plant-based eater, it’s important to know where and which sources you can get your calcium from. If you are 51 years old or older, it is recommended you get between 1200-1500 mg of calcium per day. (Unfortunately, the USDA says most of us are getting closer to 674 mg of calcium from our diets) So it’s not only crucial that we get the recommended amount of calcium per day, but also from sources that are healthy and calcium-rich. The following are the top plant-based calcium sources: * Soy: There has been some confusion about soy and its effects on health. To clear up that confusion go to, “5 Myths About Soy You Probably Still Believe”. * Calcium Fortified:… read more >

Harvard University researchers have revealed that omega 3 deficiency is the 6th biggest killer of Americans! 96,000 folks, just like you and me, die from a simple nutrient deficiency each year. That’s not something to take lightly. The fact is, we need omega 3’s. Research shows that omega 3 fatty acids can combat inflammation and reduce your risk of arthritis, cancer, dementia, and heart disease – and a ton of other diseases have supporting research which will likely become proven in coming decades.  But the hardest part is pinpointing this deficiency before it flares up into any of these full-blow chronic diseases I have listed. The 14 Common Warning Signs and Symptoms of Omega 3 Deficiency Here are some common symptoms of omega 3 deficiency: Fatigue Poor Memory Dry Skin Depression Poor circulation Brittle nails Anxiety Dandruff Hair Loss Intense… read more >

What are strong bones made of? Calcium, Vitamin D, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Vitamin A! You do not need dairy, gluten or soy to get your daily dose. As I mentioned in my last post, some of the best sources for these essential nutrients include powerhouses like leafy greens, seeds, nuts and fish. For those wanting a more specific idea for healthy bone-building meals, here are some of my favorites! Bone Building Salad This recipe contains magnesium-rich beans and chicken, as well as Vitamin K-rich olive oil and herbs. Take a mix of fresh raw spinach, kale, arugula and lettuce greens and mix together in a large bowl.   Toss in some black beans (or other beans of choice) and ½ cup or so of cooked shredded chicken.  Add in some blanched broccoli, red onion, sliced mushrooms… read more >

You probably know that omega 3 fatty acids in the forms of EPA and DHA reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, and you may know these special fats also provide protection against  age-associated cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease. But did you know that omega 3 fatty acids also play a key role in protecting the health of our bones? Why Omega 3 Fatty Acids (EPA and DHA) are So Important for Bone Health The omega-3 essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) defend our bones against osteoporosis. They do this by lessening inflammation through a large number of mechanisms. Why is lowering inflammation so critical for protection against osteoporosis? Anything that causes inflammation activates osteoclasts, the specialized cells that break down bone. Inflammatory signals tell these bone removal cells it’s time to get to work. Our osteoclasts are supposed to remove… read more >
