There has been a rise in people changing their eating habits to pursue a vegetarian lifestyle. For a number of reasons people from all walks of life have embarked on this journey, however it is not for everyone. One of the pitfalls of a totally vegetarian diet is the lack of protein; as well as B12 in their diet, which is essential for healthy brain and memory functions.
*”Contrary to vegan-based reviews or commentaries, people following a strict vegetarian diet are not healthier than their omnivorous counterparts. In fact, based on clinical records, they suffer from just as many, or more medical problems as compared to non-vegetarian individuals, who include meat or eggs in their diet.”
A more accommodative health transition would be to continue to eat fish with the vegetarian lifestyle in order to get the nutrients needed from animal protein. Researchers have found in studies that a percentage of fish we eat today is laden with chemicals and metals that are unhealthy for us to consume, which is why some may choose the total Vegan lifestyle.
One way to follow your heart to eat healthier and consume less of your food tainted by such chemicals and metals is to eat fish from a trusted source, such as: Vital Choice Wild Seafood & Organics at www.vitalchoice.com/shop and look for the package deals that are recommended by professionals in the health industry, under Doctors’ Favorites. One such recommendation is by Dr. Walter Crinnion a Naturopath in Arizona, who has chosen his package to be; Clean, Green & Lean. You may prefer to look into Dr. Northrup’s recommendations based on the season of your life; as she focuses on packages that cater to healthy Mom, Baby and Student 4-week & 8-week Packs.
However, a new source of protein that has appeared on the horizon of nutritional research is Hemp protein. Hemp protein contains the highest amount of edestin, which is constructed entirely of amino acids that can be used by your body to build a myriad of health essentials such as: antibodies, enzymes, hormones and even hemoglobin cells.
Hemp protein also contains Gamma Globulins, Essential Fatty Acids and Amino Acids. for instance, Hempseed contains 18 different amino acids, including those known to detoxify the liver, like Cysteine and Methionine. In the industrial age which we live in, free radicals cannot be exterminated from our bodies completely, but these detoxifying agents can help tremendously.
Hempseed is now being boasted as one of the best foods for survival and sustenance and is becoming more popular in nutritional outlets and online in varying forms such as; whole seed, hempseed butter, powdered protein drinks and also cold-pressed oil. For the man who loves his beer after work, or the woman who adores her chocolate, hempseed has found it’s way even into these favorite treats. If you cannot find it in your local health food store, do a search online, to incorporate this highly beneficial protein into your life.
