How To Get more Vitamin K

vitamin k

Vitamins and minerals are essential for a healthy body, but how do you know if you are getting enough? According to SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, vitamin K is an essential nutrient needed to help bones grow and blood clot.

Vitamin K has been shown to prevent osteoporosis while helping protect against heart disease. Getting enough vitamin K is essential, but more than two-thirds of Americans aren’t getting what they need.

Below are a few ways that you can boost your vitamin K intake.

vitamin k

Leafy Greens

As Popeye says, spinach is good for your body and your skin. Collards, mustard greens, and kale are at the top of the charts for vitamin K intake. Cooked kale is a powerhouse loaded with 550 micrograms of vitamin K in just a half a cup.

vitamin k

Veggies

When it comes to the best source of vitamin K, you can’t beat vegetables. Roasted broccoli and Brussels sprouts are loaded with Vitamin K. Other great vegetable choices include frozen okra, asparagus, scallions, green cabbage, and raw watercress. SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE recommends that you add some parsley to your meal as well for a quick vitamin K boost.

Fruit

Although fruits aren’t usually known for their vitamin K content, some can give you a quick dose. Snack on green apples and you’ll get 60 micrograms while a half a cup of pitted prunes will give you 50 micrograms. Although grapes and blueberries only have 11 and 14 micrograms respectively, they are easy to enjoy.

Fresh Bread Could Be To Blame on Thanksgiving

fresh bread

The smell of fresh bread is hard for most to resist. However as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE explains, bread isn’t always your friend, but unfortunately, the delicious diet staple is surrounded by myths.

Eating Bread will make you Fat

When enjoyed in moderation, fresh bread will not make you fat. In fact, nutritionists recommend bread as part of a balanced diet. Most nutritionists recommend that you avoid white bread as it is stripped of fiber, minerals, and vitamins during refining. Fiber found in whole grains helps satisfy and can curb the appetite.

Gluten Free is Healthier

There is no guarantee that the loaf of fresh bread you brought home from the health food store is actually healthy. If truth were told, gluten free bread is higher in sugar and packed with other not so good for you additives such as cornstarch and xanthan gum. Go for whole food alternatives such as rice, chia, flax, and quinoa or buckwheat breads if you don’t agree with gluten.

Not Always the Healthier Choice

Many types of whole meal and brown bread contain high levels of sugar, even higher than white bread. Bread makers add it to make the bread tastier. Caramel and treacle can also be added to the mix. Always read your labels before you put that bread in your cart.

Bad for Blood Sugar

Highly refined white bread on its own can cause a spike in blood sugar levels dropping just as fast. This will lead to cravings and low energy levels. Slather your bread with nut butter, cheese, butter, or hummus, which will accelerate the absorption rate into the bloodstream.

Bread and Bloating

Bloating can’t be narrowed down with bread being the culprit for many people. However, several factors could be at play, especially if you buy your bread from a commercial manufacturer and not an Artisan fresh bread baker.

Most commercial bakeries use a process called Chorleywood. This produces fast and cheap bread using flour improving agents and enzymes that many can be allergic or sensitive to. You may find that Artisan breads are fine, but commercial brands bloat you, just as some find wheat hard to digest, but are able to tolerate spelt or rye bread.

This Thanksgiving enjoy, but pay attention to how fresh bread affects you so that you can get a heads up for Christmas dinner.

Happy Thanksgiving from SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE!

vitamin D for skin

Depression 

Lower levels of vitamin D have been found in people with depression, however the studies do not show that supplementing will reduce the symptoms, but what studies are discovering is that depression can be helped by spending more time outdoors in the sunshine. Sunshine is Mother Nature’s vitamin D.

Arnica Natures Anti-Inflammatory

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

Arnica is a natural inflammatory that is grown in North America, Canada Russia, central Europe, and the Pyrenees. SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE gets its Arnica from the mountains in Montana.

First used by mountaineers in Switzerland to prevent aching and sore limbs, it can be used for sprains, dislocations and muscle aches. When used externally, Arnica can help prevent bruising and bleeding capillaries.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

Arnica works as it stimulates the white blood cell activity. Arnica disperses joint and muscle fluids that are trapped by congested blood dispersing to the rest of the body. There are also anti-bacterial qualities and anti-inflammatory properties in Arnica as well. Arnica can help reduce pain and speed up wound healing. Recent evidence has shown that Arnica can help the body recover more quickly form toothaches, surgery, and childbirth. In dental patients, Arnica helped control bleeding and pain after the procedure. Reducing swelling is probably one of the most well known properties of Arnica.

SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE

Bruising

Products that contain Arnica help your bruises heal faster after blows, falls, and other bodily traumas that will cause your blood vessels to break up under the skin spilling blood. This causes discoloration and tenderness. Arnica will speed up the healing while prompting the body to send in additional white blood cells that will repair the bruise.

Healthy Food instead of the Bad Stuff

Healthy food really does mean healthy skin, and if you are having a tough time keeping your skin from breaking out, it could have something to do with your diet. SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE explains that steering clear of fried and processed foods can help keep your skin clear, but so can avoiding these foods.

Healthy Food

Rice Cakes

Touted by dieters all over the planet, the fat erasing rice cake will cause your blood sugar to go through the roof. When that happens it can speed wrinkle formation as your body metabolizes the simple carbohydrates in the rice cakes exactly the same way that is does with sugar, by turning them into glucose. Once converted, it will stick to proteins, such as collagen, that fight wrinkles.

Healthy Food

Healthy Cereals

Although whole grains are lower when it comes to the glycemic index, many of those so-called healthy foods, including cereals are loaded with sugar, and just like rice cakes, can cause those glucose spikes that will speed up wrinkle formation.

Healthy Food

Milk

According to the ads, “Milk does a body good,” but it isn’t as good for your skin, especially skim milk. Milk contains growth hormones, which can affect your insulin as those hormones can make their way into the blood stream. This can also cause inflammation and an excess of oil production resulting in a massive breakout. Nut and organic milks are healthy foods that could be a good alternative.

Healthy Food

Chips

You may think munching on the occasional chip, even the baked variety can’t hurt, but the refined carbs can trigger collagen damaging oxidative stress meaning that over time you will start to notice wrinkles and fine lines. Skip the chips if you don’t want to look older than you really are and go for more healthy food.

Healthy Food

Smoothies

With Americans eating up a whopping 22 teaspoons of sugar every day, it’s no wonder their skin is suffering for it. Most sugars are hidden in the most surprising places, and one of the biggest offenders is the humble smoothie, but don’t blame the natural sugar as made to order smoothies from chains or the ones that you buy at the grocery store contain frozen yogurt and even sherbet, all of which are teaming with added sugar. If you must have a smoothie, make it at home with good for you foods such as yogurt or unsweetened almond or coconut milk.

Healthy Food

Eating healthy food and using all natural skin care products, such as SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE, will help you stay healthy and young looking. Order SOUTHWEST SUNSHINE skin care system today.
