I had been doing so based on the theory that dietary fat contributes to the buildup of cholesterol in coronary arteries...a theory that seemed to have been confirmed by several preliminary studies.
Think of all the heart patients who might have benefited if doctors back then had been willing to recommend a low-fat diet. After all, the risk of cutting down on fat is pretty small. The situation is similar with vitamin supplements today. There are theoretical reasons to take antioxidants (including vitamins C and E and the mineral selenium). They gobble up free radicals, ubiquitous molecules that are thought to contribute to the development of both cancer and heart disease. And the evidence is that the risk of taking moderate doses of these vitamins is pretty small. In that spirit, here are my educated guesses. Every morning, in addition to a multivitamin with minerals, I take 250 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C, 400 international units of natural vitamin E and 200 micrograms of selenium. Whenever possible, I buy inexpensive store brands. Even though I take these supplements, I firmly believe that a healthful diet is more important. If you eat poorly, I doubt you can undo all the damage by popping a few vitamins. Accordingly, I've been a not-too-strict vegetarian for years, consuming mostly whole grains, fruits, legumes, vegetables, a little fish and some low-fat dairy products like yogurt. To me, the vitamins are like a little added insurance. My educated guesses could turn out to be wrong, so by all means stay tuned. New evidence might suggest the benefits of some vitamins not previously understood...while discrediting others. Like me, plenty of doctors take dietary supplements, even if they don't recommend them to their patients. In this case, you may want to do what we do... and not what we say.
General Rules For Dehydrating Vegetables
By Excalibur Preserve It Naturally
Vegetables - you can dry a different vegetable each day for a month and still not go through the entire list. Some are more suitable for dehydrating than others but once you get started, you'll want to try them all.
What do we get from vegetables? Vegetables are rich sources of vitamins and minerals. Some of the important nutrients they contain include: vitamin A, vitamin C, niacin, phosphorus, calcium, and iron - all of which are preserved, although not in their entirety, when properly dehydrated. Peas and members of the bean family contribute protein. In addition vegetables are vital suppliers of bulk, indigestible fiber that aids in the digestive process. One thing you probably won't gain from vegetables is weight. One-half cup of most vegetables contains less than 50 calories; starchy vegetables, like potatoes and beans, may have 50 to 100 calories per 1/2 cup serving.
To preserve most of this goodness in your dehydrated food, start with vegetables that are ripe and in prime condition. Buy or pick the crispest, freshest, most flavorful ones that can be obtained. Dehydrating retains most of the nutrition and good taste, but it can't improve on the original quality of the food. The fresher the vegetables are when processed, the better they will taste when dehydrated and cooked.
Take extra care when drying vegetables because they spoil and deteriorate much more quickly than fruits. This doesn't imply that the novice dryer should shy away from them - not at all. Just pay close attention to dehydrating procedures given here and in Chapter 3, and you'll have great results.
Preparation and Pretreatment
Once you get the vegetables home, remember not to store them at room temperature if at all possible. If you can't dry the vegetables immediately, refrigerate them to avoid deterioration. Prepare only as many vegetables as you can dehydrate in one load.
Wash vegetables quickly and thoroughly right before processing. Use cold, not hot, water to help preserve freshness and avoid careless handling that could damage the produce. Vegetables covered with dirt should be rinsed under cool running water and scrubbed if necessary. Don't allow the vegetables to soak in the water. Soaking causes many water-soluble vitamins and minerals to dissolve and speeds deterioration.
Your end product should taste as smooth as it looks!
The Strength of Antioxidants
By now, you have probably heard about free radical. These ubiquitous molecules cause cells to break down, speeding the aging process, promoting heart disease and cancer and weakening the immune system.
There's no way to avoid free radicals. They're produced within the body as a result of normal metabolic processes. But certain antioxidant compounds destroy free radicals. For you to stay healthy and to recover quickly from illness your immune system must be healthy, too. What can you do to optimize immune function? Exercise and stress reduction helps. But evidence suggest that the most important contributor to immune function is what you eat.
*Vitamin E. This potent antioxidant forestalls the gradual decline in immune function brought on by aging. It boosts synthesis of antibodies and encourages reproduction of key infection-finghting cells called lymphocytes.
People who take vitamin E supplements mount a stronger immune reaction against invading viruses and bacteria. They also enjoy a reduced risk for cancer. Good sources of vitamin E include whole grains, seeds and vegetable oils. Before Moringa came into play getting enough vitamin E for full protection against free radicals from dietary sources were nearly impossible.
But Don't Forget About The Moringa...
These antioxidants increase the numbers of lymphocytes and natural-killer cells. Supplements are available, but the best sources are fruits and vegetable especially carrots, kale, tomatoes and cantaloupes and green peppers.
*Vitamin C. It energizes the immune system to react more vigorously to cancer cells and microbes. Diets rich in vitamin C have been linked to reduced risk for breast, colorectal and prostate cancer. The optimal intake of vitamin C is 200 milligrams (mg) a day. You can get more than enough through your diet. Good sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits, cantaloupes and green peppers.
*Immunity Boosters. Research is beginning to confirm what traditional healers have long known that certain foods and herbs boost immune function... Shiitake mushrooms. Studies in Japan show that these mushrooms boost immune function and inhibit viral multiplication. In Japan, a shiitake derivative called lentinan is used as a cancer-fighting drug. Shiitakes are tasty in soups, stews and vegetable dishes. Eat two to six shiitakes a week. Reishi mushrooms. These Chinese mushrooms boost reproduction of lymphocytes and trigger production of chemical "messengers" that coordinate immune system activity. Eat two to four reishis per week.

The Intricate Details About The Moringa Tree!
Growing a Moringa Tree can be challenging, they grow best in warm tropical weather. In this type of weather this will allow the moringa oleifera species to be exact, to grow continually without being stunted. Some of the best US Hardiness Zones are 9, 10 and 11, but with proper care the moringa will just about grow anywhere. Moringa trees are delicate and demand respect; there is about a 50% survival rate when transplanting them. First root shock can occur if the soil is disturbed which can proceed to air exposure and other airborne elements not needed near sensitive tap roots, let alone the core-root. Now to increase the survival rate when transplanting moringa; vitamin B1 is one of the keys to my preventative measures and success stories.
I recommend that vitamin B1, be added to all moringa tree transplants. I have noticed an increase from root shock at about an 85% survival rate using 1 cup per gallon of water. For more, allow me to bring to your attention that moringa trees, all “thirteen species” of them, have no need for fertilizers if your soil has a well balanced eco-system, the proper order of microorganisms. Hot/Cold Climates: In 70 to 98 degrees the moringa tree will grow as a perennial, year around. Past dealings have yielded from the seed that they can grow, a foot in two weeks time. You can have a 15 foot moringa tree in no time soon in this type of weather. When it comes to colder climates; the 20’s and below, lasting for long periods, will totally do a moringa no justice. So if you want them year around, they must be grown inside your home or in a heated greenhouse, keeping a temperature of 70 degrees plus. Remember, the cooler the temperature gets, the slower the moringa tree will grow; more mature and larger trees become more cold tolerant. Younger moringa trees will; a lot of times die back and go into hibernation, leaving the owner until the weather heats back up again.
Moringa Health Benefits:

Are you aware of this sneaky sign that your body is fighting off an infection? (Photo: Getty Images)
When you have a bump or lump beneath the skin, your mind probably jumps to assume it’s either benign — like an itchy bug bite — or very serious — like cancer. But here’s something you may not have realized: That lump could actually be a swollen lymph node, an indicator that your body is fighting off an infection.
Many people are aware that swollen lymph nodes under the chin are a sign of sickness, but most don’t realize that those aren’t the only lymph nodes a person has. It’s understandable, then, that you might be a little concerned if you stumble across a swollen lymph node in a place you weren’t expecting — say, your arm or genitals.
In fact, “we have more than 500 lymph nodes located all over the body,” says Baltimore-area primary care physician Kathryn Boling, MD. Read Full Article: https://www.yahoo.com/health/the-weird-sign-youre-getting-sick-111287730352.html
