Eating healthy helps your mind, body and soul. Although building lean mass is possible through diet and exercise alone, many bodybuilders choose to supplement their diets with glutamine, multivitamins, creatine or protein powder as a way to enhance muscle growth. You’re better off avoiding lower-quality foods like refined grains, highly processed foods and snacks, refined sugar, sugary foods and drinks, fried foods and foods with trans fats or significant amounts of saturated fat, says the Harvard School of Public Health. Appropriate digestive enzymes such as disaccharidases are needed to breakdown the double sugars (sucrose, lactose, and maltose). People with digestive issues have trouble digesting or breaking down these double sugars. Undigested starch, if not digested, becomes the perfect food for pathogenic flora in the gut, and allows it to flourish and produce toxins. (Single sugars are called monosaccharides and include galactose, glucose, and fructose.) This means no grains, too. Another type of enzyme called peptidases is needed to breakdown proteins into amino acids. People who are unable to produce peptidases have trouble digesting protein. Most GAPS people have inflammation and ulceration in their gut lining. The role of cholesterol is explained and is needed. Other digestive issues found in GAPS patients are also covered. Dr. Michael B. Schachter, MD and Deborah Mitchell have written a book explaining in detail the nutritional issues behind depression. It is based on orthomolecular psychiatry, where depression is examined from a cellular point of view and the role of nutrients on the cellular level. There are a considerable number of factors at play with depression. Depression is a result of a chemical imbalance in the brain, an imbalance that includes dozens of substances, especially neurotransmitters. The building blocks of neurotransmitters come from amino acids (protein). There are two types of neurotransmitters, the inhibitory and the excitetory. They need to be balanced. Other factors include nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, exposure to toxic substances, gastrointestinal issues, immune system, the nervous system, inadequate sunlight, chronic disease, medications, and genetics. If the hormones are out of balance, so are the neurotransmitters. Neurotoxins affect the brain and they include: lead, mercury, formaldehyde, dioxins, and there are others.

It’s a relatively new field and many people are just now starting to learn about it. Onco-dermatologists care for skin, hair and nail reactions from cancer therapy.

Your brain needs rest, just like every other part of your body. Sleep energize us and improves our mood. During deep sleep, the brain repairs itself and boosts the immune system. Poor sleep or sleep-loss leads to fatigue, immune crackdown, memory and mood disorders. Examining previous studies in this field scientists found no evidence of a link between high dose supplementation of vitamin D in helping to prevent or successfully treat COVID-19 and cautioned against over supplementation of the vitamin, without medical supervision, due to health risks. Scientists concluded that assertions about the benefit of the vitamin in treating the virus are not currently supported by adequate human studies and are based on findings from studies that did not specifically examine this area.

While vitamin A provides health benefits, it can build up to toxic levels over time, especially if the recommended dosage is exceeded. Your skin will provide a barrier but may still absorb high amounts with long-term use. Finally, unless specifically stated on the product’s label, topically using vitamin A tablets for skin is not an FDA-approved use. Chen MX, Alexander KS, Baki G.
