Some things I recently learned in the First for Women Magazine April 4, 2011 that I want to share with everyone
· Omega 3 fatty acids are shown to be as effective as anti-depressants. Studies show that these fats balance the nerve signals involved in mood shifts by countering nerve inflammation.
· A unique type of fiber known as inulin helps with weight loss, found in asparagus, chicory, artichokes, onions, jicama, and yams. It works by fermenting in the digestive tract, and feeds healthy probiotic bacteria and increases the body’s production of short-chain fatty acids that boost levels of satiety hormones, it also helps balance blood sugar to reduce food cravings.
