Dr. Oz notes

I enjoy watching Dr. Oz for relevant medical information, and I collect the best stuff for the blog. Recently, Dr. Oz talked about new medical information and advances for 2014, plus health and nutrition topics that are important:

  • Eating a handful of nuts everyday can extend your life by 20%. Good nuts are: walnuts, almonds, macadamia, pecans, hazel, NOT peanuts (they are legumes, not nuts)
  • eat less red meat; more chicken, and even more fish; problem in the meat is the problem with digestion in the gut
  • red meat (beef, pork) has carnitine that turns into plaque in the blood; only eat one serving of beef per week; 3 or less of pork. Here’s more information: http://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Carnitine-HealthProfessional/
  • Tomatoes help metabolize the carnitine; tomatoes and probiotics are good for helping digestion
  • cauliflower and broccoli are cancer fighting foods, and help the liver get rid of toxins
  • change your life by changing your behaviors that change the rate of aging (gene modification by behavior)
  • cut your doses of vitamins and supplements, and replace the doses with real, natural foods
  • New Omega vitamin discovered: Omega 7 (found in anchovies and macadamia nuts) (all Omega vitamins are good)
  • Omega 7 stops plaque development in the blood vessels
  • Memory Vitamin: Bacopa for memory support, blocks free radicals in the brain
  • New “purple potatoes” help lower blood pressure, contains anti-oxidants
