In these videos below from our recent trip to Argentina, you can learn more about the benefits of red meat and also red wine polyphenols. Both things are red.
Vegetarianism has become quite popular and trendy in recent years but the truth about vegetarianism is that it may not be nearly as safe as once thought. To learn more about the dangers of vegan and vegetarian diets, please follow this link.
If we want to be healthy, we need to have a good source of protein. All of the cells of our body are made out of protein. ALL. OF. THEM. Yes, all of them. Every single cell in the human body has a phospholipid membrane that surrounds the cell that is made of protein and fat. The fatty substance is nearly identical to cholesterol and the protein part of it is rather high in nitrogen and carbon and sulfur. The word protein comes from the Latin word “Proteus” which means “of utmost importance.” If protein is crucial to human health and the majority of our hormones are made from protein and ALL of our enzymes are made of protein that allow for proper cellular reactions and ALL of our neurotransmitters are made of protein then I suppose protein must be very important. One of the best ways to digest, absorb and make protein available to your body on a cellular level is to eat a sufficient amount of protein that is relatively high quality. Two of the best sources of protein are fish and red meat. Red meat has plenty of iron which helps with the prevention of anemia and fish has plenty of iodine and Omega 3 Fatty Acids that prevent thyroid disease and inflammation. How can you go wrong with preventing anemia, thyroid disease and inflammation. Both thyroid disease and inflammation have now become epidemics in our society.
According to all of the research done on the Masai and Samburu of East Africa who eat mainly animal protein and very little vegetables; high levels of protein and even cholesterol is one of the best ways to establish good heart health. More cholesterol research has been done on the Samburu and Masai tribes in East Africa than on any other group of people. The research is very conclusive. Huge amounts of protein with very little vegetables is excellent for the heart and allows the heart muscle to be strong and thick. The large amounts of fat in the meat are also very helpful to allow for a healthy heart. Of course, I am summarizing and simplifying the research, but I think that you get the point. If you would like to learn more about this research, I would suggest the book The Great Cholestrol Myth by Jonny Boden, PH.D., C.N.S. and Stephen Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C. and also Cholesterol Facts and Fantasies by Judith A. DeCava, CNC, LNC
In Cholesterol Facts and Fantasies, Decava explains how essential and non-detrimental cholesterol really is. and that low cholesterol leads to fatigue, obesity, nervous and emotional disturbances, digestive difficulties, impotency or inability to conceive or complete pregnancy, PMS, masculinization of women, femininity in men, fluid imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, etc.
The Great Cholesterol Myth reveals how low cholesterol levels will actually lead to depression and thinking difficulties and even suicide if left unchecked. The information about the Masai and Samburu comes from this book. He reveals that inflammation and increased triglycerides are the real health culprits, while high cholesterol is actually associated with a longer and healthier life.
Red wine consumption has also been associated with good heart health because red wine contains red wine polyphenols – antioxidants that improve vascular health and function. Does this mean that Triad Of Health Family Healing Center endorses regular red wine consumption? No, it does not. But it is interesting to note the benefits of certain types of wine. These same polyphenols sometimes called resveratrol can also be found in even higher concentrations in Japanese Knott Weed. Let’s watch the video:
