What You Need To Know About Lung Health Supplements

By Olivia Cross

Our lungs are in a constant contraction and relaxation mode of up to 15 to 25 times in a single minute. This is specifically to help force the oxygen-rich air through respiratory tracts that reduce in diameter after every subdivision. The air is pushed to the air sacs that have very thin walls that allow oxygen to diffuse to red blood cells and carbon dioxide into the same air sacs to be pushed out to the atmosphere. This is a complex process that is only achieved by optimally functioning organs. The body must be rich in the nutrients like the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, and other nutrients for this to happen. However, when the said nutrients are inadequate, it is advisable to seek boost from the lung health supplements.

The supplements or boosters are specifically used to rejuvenate the respiratory tissues by making them stronger and supporting their functionality. The boosters also make the respiratory system resistant to a number of respiratory diseases. In some cases, the treatment of many chronic infections like the lung cancer and chronic bronchitis is usually accompanied by these boosters. They are made of ingredients rich in the nutrients required to replace the parts depleted by inflammations and other infections.

Normally, these respiratory supplements are made by blending specific herbs with the aim of nourishing the tissues in the respiratory system. They help clean up the system which in turn helps maintain smooth, clear, and comfortable breathing. In some cases, the ingredients like pippali may be included to help increase the production of hemoglobin, which in turn increases the absorption of oxygen from the air sacs.

The bronchial tubes also need to be dilated properly. This is achieved by soothing and relaxing the muscles that surround that respiratory system. This is what the boosters are designed to do. The ingredients are carefully chosen to ensure that the respiratory tissues perform optimally all the time.

This ceaseless contraction and relaxation need a lot of supportive vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Vitamin E, in particular, is very important. It is associated with reduced chances of contracting chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It also helps alleviate asthma, inflammations, and many other oxidative damages in respiratory tissues. It is also said that a formula of vitamin E and vitamin help increase an individual, s resilience to many upper respiratory infections.

In order reduce that risk of contracting cancer by up to one third, the solution is the carotenoids. The most common of these are the lutein and zeaxanthin that forms the yellow, red, and orange pigments in most of the fruits and vegetables.

Vitamin D is the other important vitamin. It helps to promote repair and growth of the lung cells. It also ensures that the tissues in the respiratory system remain functioning properly. This is achieved by stopping inflammations and quickly repairing injuries and damages to the tissues.

Even though vitamins, minerals, and many other nutrients can help boost the functions of tissues in the respiratory system, not all vitamins and minerals are recommended. Even the recommended nutrients have to be taken in the right dosage. As such, the respiratory supplements taken must be certified by experts and accepted by the government agencies. Before using any of these boosters, it is proper to consult your doctor.

7 ways to snack smarter

7 ways to snack smarter

Have you upgraded your snacks in the interest of more healthful eating? Perhaps you’ve traded in your afternoon candy bar for an energy bar or have become a fan of baked potato chips or fat-free ice cream. Maybe you’re willing to pay a little extra when the label says “organic” or “natural.”

It’s a great idea to choose snacks wisely. But many foods that seem to be a great nutrition value aren’t. Bran muffins and cereal bars can be packed with unhealthy fats and added sugar. Fat-free foods often contain lots of added salt and sugar.

6-Week Plan for Healthy Eating
This week-by-week plan will help you transform your eating habits into a program of nutritious and delicious food choices that can last a lifetime. Applying the latest results from nutrition science, Harvard experts take you by the hand and guide you to create an eating plan to improve heart health, longevity, energy, and vitality.

Here are 7 tips for smarter snacking.

  1. Go for the grain. Whole-grain snacks — such as whole-grain low-salt pretzels or tortilla chips and high-fiber, whole-grain cereals — can give you some energy with staying power.
  2. Bring back breakfast. Many breakfast foods can be repurposed as a nutritious snack later in the day. How about a slice of whole-grain toast topped with low-sugar jam? Low-sugar granola also makes a quick snack.
  3. Try a “hi-low” combination. Combine a small amount of something with healthy fat, like peanut butter, with a larger amount of something very light, like apple slices or celery sticks.
  4. Go nuts. Unsalted nuts and seeds make great snacks. Almonds, walnuts, peanuts, roasted pumpkin seeds, cashews, hazelnuts, filberts, and other nuts and seeds contain many beneficial nutrients and are more likely to leave you feeling full (unlike chips or pretzels). Nuts have lots of calories, though, so keep portion sizes small.
  5. The combo snack. Try to eat more than one macronutrient (protein, fat, carbohydrate) at each snacking session. For example, have a few nuts (protein and fat) and some grapes (carbohydrates). Try some whole-grain crackers (carbohydrates) with some low-fat cheese (protein and fat). These balanced snacks tend to keep you feeling satisfied.
  6. Snack mindfully. Don’t eat your snack while doing something else like surfing the Web, watching TV, or working at your desk. Instead, stop what you’re doing for a few minutes and eat your snack like you would a small meal.
  7. You can take it with you. Think ahead and carry a small bag of healthful snacks in your pocket or purse so you won’t turn in desperation to the cookies at the coffee counter or the candy bars in the office vending machine.
