The effect of nutrition on human health

Until a person gets sick, he thinks little about his health. But when this happens, the person rushes to look for medications that can relieve him of the symptoms of the disease. Experience shows that once “sat down” on medicines, a person does not want to refuse them ever. At the same time, he completely forgets about such an effective remedy as therapeutic diet food, which can perfectly replace drugs.

Medicines have many side effects. They are not able to cure the disease, but only eliminate its symptoms. In order not to spend money on drugs, you can use the principles of diet.

From birth, our body receives the necessary components from food. Without them, he will not be able to constantly update his cells and develop. Substances such as essential amino acids, fats, proteins, vitamins and carbohydrates – affect the state of organs and overall health. Continue reading

Malt and beer

We offer you a recipe for making beer in a classic way from malt and hops. This is a pure-grain type of brewing.

This recipe uses an infusion of brewing. It is considered the oldest of all known. If this method is used, the enzymes are better preserved in the mash, and there will be more amino acids and maltose in the wort than when using the boiling method.

If you decide to make beer at home, you will need equipment and raw materials. You can buy ready-made equipment or make it yourself. As for raw materials, some components can be grown on their own (for example, hops), others will be quite difficult to make on their own, it is better to purchase them at breweries or from their suppliers.

The composition of beer includes water, malt and hops. These are the main components. They can and should be supplemented with yeast, honey, cereals, fruits, vegetables, spices, grass, smoke, a tree or mushrooms. Continue reading

How and why cook cabbage?

I won’t tire of writing about the benefits of cabbage: it is really worth it. As a storehouse of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory substances, it is rightfully a superfood, and one of the most affordable. But at the same time, and one of the most diverse: white and red, broccoli and Brussels, color and savoy – choose! First of all, all types of cabbage are rich in such a powerful antioxidant as vitamins C and K. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals that take away the missing electron from healthy cells, thereby starting the aging and oxidation processes in our body. Namely, oxidative stress is the cause of many diseases.

Different types of cabbage contain their own set of phytonutrients (such as carotenoids and polyphenols), which relieve inflammation, strengthen immunity, support cell health, protect against cancer and have antioxidant properties. For example, broccoli (beta-carotene) and Brussels sprouts (lutein and zeaxanthin) are rich in carotenoids useful for vision. And sulforaphane – a sulfur compound that helps the liver get rid of toxins – contains white cabbage, Brussels sprouts and broccoli. Continue reading
