Your Diet is only as good as your Digestion

Your diet is only as good as your digestion. This means that even though you are eating healthy, nutrient dense food, you may not be absorbing all the great nutrients in the meal.

We need to digest, break down the food we eat to release the nutrients that the body needs to function optimally. Poor digestion can lead to many common symptoms:

  • gas, bloating
  • constipation, diarrhea
  • lack of energy
  • skin issues
  • reflux
  • food sensitivities

There are many digestive enzyme blends on the market and you need to choose the right blend for you and your diet.

Some examples of diets that require different enzyme mixes includes Keto, Paleo, high protein, vegetarian.

Here is short video discusses the benefits of enzymes and helps you choose the proper enzyme blend to use.

NADH-a vital nutrient many lack

NADH-nicotinamide adeneine dinucleotide is the biologically active form of niacin (B3). It acts as a biological spark, igniting cellular energy. Therefore, a persons NADH level is vital to good health.

The “H” in NADH stands for high-energy hydrogen and indicates that this substance is in the most biologically active form.

NADH Acid Resistant Caps

NADH supports the recycling of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant and vital for detoxification. After glutathione neutralizes a free radical, it needs to be recharged, recycled. NADH plays a important role in this process and explains why NADH is a vital nutrient.

If glutathione levels are low due to variants in your DNA (SNPS) and/or your body has produces excess peroxynitrite (which needs glutathione to neutralize it), NADH may be very helpful.

NADH is called Co-enzyme 1

A co-enzyme is a substance that enhances or is necessary for the action of all enzymes in the body. NADH is often referred to as Co-enzyme 1. It is the body’s top-ranked co enzyme, a facilitator of many biological reactions. NADH is necessary for cellular development and energy production. It is essential to producing energy from food and is the principal carrier of electrons in the energy producing process in the cells.

NADH, BH4 and neurotransmitters

When we look a bit deeper into our metabolic pathways and how our genetics may affect these pathways, we see the NADH is important to the conversion of BH2 to BH4. BH4 is needed for the production of neurotransmitters and to support the conversion of arginine into nitric oxide.

Low BH4 will cause more peroxynitrite to be produced while less serotonin and dopamine will be produced making BH4 critical for well being. .

NADH-an important antioxidant

NADH is also an important antioxidant; in fact, scientists acknowledge that NADH is the most powerful antioxidant to protect cells from damage by harmful substances.

This supplement may help reduce fatigue by increasing the amount of energy available in the body due to it’s action as a co-factor, assisting many metabolic processes work more efficiently.

NADH deficiencies can result in an energy deficit at the cellular level, which causes symptoms of fatigue. When the body is deficient in NADH, it is like a car that has run out of gasoline.

Unfortunately, the production and recycling of NADH in our bodies declines as we age. The production of NADH-dependent enzymes, particularly those enzymes involved in energy production also decreases with age.

Get organized-Help from the Organizing Diva

Here is a link to a podcast with Maureen Nuccitelli. maureen n

Maureen Nuccitelli has come a long way in the world of organizing and  consulting. In fact, in her youth she was pretty disorganized. What  changed? What happened? Well for one thing, it’s a “pain in the arse”  being disorganized.  Being disorganized sucks up way too much time,  effort and money. Sound familiar? She’d had enough. So she made a  concerted effort to learn all there was to know about organizing,  de-cluttering, efficiency and productivity.

This was her new life’s mission. And guess what? She started to learn  new habits, new ways and new tools—all in the pursuit of knowing  everything about organizing. Then as the years went by she started to  help others with their organizing challenges. She taught them how to be  more organized. Woa! You mean you can learn how to be organized? You bet  your life, Sista and Brotha!

Maureen helped clients, friends and family; she taught classes; wrote  newsletters and articles; and was quoted on blogs and websites.  She  lived and breathed all things related to organizing. It became her   passion. Then one day, a friend referred to her as “The Organizing Diva”. Given her sassy attitude about life, Maureen accepted the title with relish and a wink.  “Let’s have some fun” she thought.

But wait a minute, could learning to be organized be fun and and not  so stressful—well at least some of the time? Of course it can! How about  a little humor when life gets crazy? How about the fact that we’re all  in this together and we’re here to support each other? How about while  we’re laughing, we roll up our sleeves and learn how to do things  differently?
