Belly Fat Dangers, 16 Vital Nutrients and Your Dementia Risk

Esher, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 18, 2011 -- "Helping your heart might be as simple as drinking a blended fruit juice according to new research." Says Kirsten Whittaker, editor of the DHB. "It seems that the researchers wondered if pure fruit juices and purees, rich sources of polyphenols, could bring the same benefits of other polyphenol-rich foods like red wine, dark chocolate and green tea."

There's a large new study that brings a serious warning... if you have heart disease and belly fat (even if you''re considered normal weight) you have a higher risk of death than those who have fat in other areas of the body.

Phytochemicals are plant based nutrients that bring a wonderful array of health benefits to the body. You've probably heard about carbs, proteins and fat, as well as vitamins and minerals, but you probably haven't heard too much about plant based micronutrients that might help protect you from life altering disease like cancer, heart disease, stroke and diabetes. There are 16 that you should be aiming to include in your diet.

We know carrying too much weight is bad for the body... now we're learning those extra pounds are bad for the brain too. If you''re middle aged and overweight you''re 71% more likely to be diagnosed with dementia than if you were at a normal weight.

Gluten is a protein that's a natural part of wheat, rye and barley (not to mention products that contain these grains) and a problem for those who have celiac disease, an autoimmune condition caused by intolerance for gluten that can appear at any age. It is also one of the most commonly excluded food. So, would a gluten free diet benefit you?
