By: | Tags:

There are two main culprits that accelerate the aging process of our skin: sun exposure and Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs). AGEs form when protein or fat combine with sugar.

VEGANISM AND VEGETARIANISM

By: | Tags:

Both vegetarian and vegan diets may provide health benefits, including reduced body weight, decrease cholesterol levels and the risk of cardiovascular disease. However, it is important to ensure that all essential nutrients are ingested. For example, plants do not contain vitamin B-12, so vegans and vegetarians need to consume fortified foods or take dietary supplements to make up for this lack.

CHOLESTEROL IS BOTH GOOD AND BAD

At normal levels, cholesterol is an essential substance (waxy and fat-like appearance) for the body. However, if concentrations in the blood get too high, it becomes a silent danger that puts people at risk of heart attack. Cholesterol is present in every cell of the body and has important natural functions when it comes to digesting foods, producing hormones, and generating vitamin D. Call our International Call Center (+351) 21 458 85 00 and schedule your Nutritional Consultation and Body Analysis Composition to understand and control your Body Mass Index (BMI).

PROCESSED AND ULTRA-PROCESSED DIETS

By: | Tags:

Not all processed foods are bad. Some minimally processed foods can be helpful for busy people. Any time we cook food, we’re processing food. To minimize your intake of processed food, prepare and cook more food at home. Base your meals on whole foods, including vegetables, beans, and whole grains. Processed foods may be more convenient and cost less, but make you eat more and gain weight. Call our International Call Center (+351) 21 458 85 00 and schedule your Nutritional Consultation and get your customised Alimentary Plan to control […]

NUTRIENT DEFICIENCIES CAUSES CRAVINGS?

By: | Tags:

TIP OF THE DAY of our nutritionist Dr. Tomás Barbosa: Cravings are defined as intense, urgent or abnormal desires or longings. Not only are they very common, but they’re also arguably one of the most intense feelings you can experience when it comes to food. Some believe that cravings are caused by nutrient deficiencies and view them as the body’s way to correct them. Yet others insist that, unlike hunger, cravings are largely about what your brain wants, rather than what your body actually needs.
