Nutrition For The Brain

The brain can clearly be identified as the best and the most important component of the body. It gives orders to almost every other part of your body what to do, every time, whether you're conscious of it or not. When a message receives into the brain from wherever in the body, the brain directs the body how to respond. It not only manage what you think and sense, how you study and memorize,  but also functions that you might not be attentive of, such as the beating of the heart.  

The brain has higher nutrient requirements than other parts of the body. Proper nutrition is extremely significant for the healthy function of the brain. Different nutrition plans or nutrient consumption can change the performance of nerves in the brain. Shortages or overloads of particular vitamins or minerals can harm nerves in the brain, can lead to changes in mind, limiting analytical capability, and damaging brain performance. Numerous dietary factors can influence brain health. Often shortages of several nutrients relatively than a particular nutrient are accountable for changes in brain performance. 

Carbohydrates considerably have an effect on frame of mind and activities. Eating a meal rich in carbohydrates is extremely important to maintain sufficient levels of the brain fuel glucose. Best sources of carbohydrates are Whole Wheat Flour, Beans and legumes, Green Gram, Dry Dates, Apricot, and starchy vegetables such as corn.

 Proteins can stimulate or calm your brain as well as nourish your brain during its existence. Protein's linking role is even more spectacular and important for the growth of the brain. When nerve cells travel from their place of birth, protein performs as a molecular guide. Proteins in the meal influence brain operation as they supply the amino acids from which neurotransmitters are fabricated. Neurotransmitters are the messengers that transmit signals from one brain cell to another. The better you nourish these couriers, the more powerfully they carry the supplies.

Calcium is an important nutrient for the function of the brain too. Calcium is not just significant to growing bones, but to growing brains as well. Children with calcium shortages might show weakened performance and learning. Nutritional intake of fats might also have an important role in brain performance. Nutritional fats can be found in both animal and plant foodstuff.

 By following the fundamentals of nutrition, you can keep your brain healthy and make sure that your brain is functioning properly.

Vegetarian Cyclists Nutrition

Vegetarian Cyclists Nutrition

“The average person has about the same amount of iron in their body as a large rusty nail. It’s purpose in the body is to help with the formation of red blood cells that are used to transport oxygen to a cyclists hard working muscles. A deficiency of iron could lead to anemia and the associated symptoms of tiredness and fatigue. In athletes where the risks of over training are high (such as in cycling) it is vitally important to maintain high levels of iron in order to maintain performance. Symptoms of Iron Deficiency in Cyclists Symptoms of iron deficiency are not unique to the condition and can easily be mistaken for general states of tiredness. To the cyclist however, many of the symptoms can simply be diagnosed as over training when in fact a deficiency can be a cause of the symptoms. Symptoms of iron deficiency include: Fatigue Weakness Brittle Nails Irritability Paleness of colour in the face/tongue Pica (a strange craving for mineral rich non food substances such as dust or sand) Vegetarians and iron Iron is one of the most difficult minerals for our bodies to breakdown and absorb. In addition endurance athletes such as cyclists lose iron during exercise and therefore need to ensure iron intake is high to maintain the correct levels. Add to this that vegetarians generally have a lower iron intake because of their diet (see below) and it is easy to see why cyclists with vegetarian diets need to pay particular attention to their iron intake to avoid an iron deficiency. Foods that are rich in iron Most mild iron deficiencies in cyclists can be corrected by changes in diet that result in an increase in the consumption of iron rich foods. Generally foods contain two types of iron: Heme iron sources are usually found in meats and are much more easily broken down and absorbed by the body than non-heme ironthat is usually found in vegetables and grains. The foods listed below have high iron content; Lean red meats, chicken, turkey Fish (eaten by some vegetarians) Eggs Beans (fresh or baked), lentils, chick peas Nuts Fortified breakfast cereals Brown Rice Tofu Wholewheat bread Leafy greens such as spinach and broccoli Dried fruit such as apricots, prunes, raisins Avocado Iron Absorption Most vegetarian diets do not contain as much iron as a non-veg one. The interesting thing about iron as mentioned above is that the body finds it very hard to absorb. Vitamin C has been found to be great at helping the body absorb iron. Foods particularly rich in vitamin C such as oranges, kiwi, broccoli, kale, tomatoes, peppers and orange juice can massively increase the amount of iron you can absorb. Therefore if you are a vegetarian be sure to make sure you include these types of foods in your diet. On the flip side tea has been found to impede iron absorption so again try to avoid drinking tea with or immediately after your meals. Iron Supplements Iron supplements are usually not required unless you have very severe iron defficiency. Too much iron can be very bad for the body and so most doctors recommend treating any deficiencies purely through the adaption of diet. Donating Blood If you give blood you usually have about 1 pint removed each time which equates to about 10% of the total blood in your body. If you have particularly low iron levels the nurse may send you away without taking any blood telling you to increase your iron intake. Assuming you do give blood, you will need to pay attention to your diet to help your body recover it’s hemoglobin levels as quickly as possible. Your on bike performance should not be affected for moderate rides however during high intensity rides (races, interval training etc) you may notice a drop in performance until your body has recovered which can take up to 14 days.”
