Amaranth grain & leaves contain high amounts of lysine that helps metabolize fatty acids & absorb calcium. Amaranth helps reduce risk of osteoporosis & other calcium deficiencies because it has 2X the calcium as milk. 1 cup has 52% of RDA of protein. Rich in iron & magnesium, it can help keep osteoporosis & anemia at bay. Its Lunasin is believed to have anti-cancer & anti-inflammatory properties. Rutin & nicotiflorin found in amaranth, have a neuroprotective effect on the brain. #dherbs
A study by the University of Aberdeen has found that a higher concentration of the molecules that breakdown omega-3 fatty acids is associated with a higher chance of survival from bowel cancer. This is the first time that molecules associated with the breakdown of omega–3 and omega-6 have been associated with survival in bowel cancer. The study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, measured the proportion of the enzymes responsible for the metabolism of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids…
#Sesameseeds are traditional food and medicinal ingredients in several cultures around the world. Sesame seeds accelerate fatty acid metabolism, inhibit cholesterol absorption and bio synthesis. #weightmangement #Bioactives #nutritionalingredients

http://fatdiminisher.digimkts.com The best thing I ever did. Salmon is naturally low in calories, saturated fat, and sodium and a good source of protein; what really makes it stand out is its omega-3 fatty acid content, Dinehart-Perry says. Omega-3 fatty acids, especially EPA and DHA, are becoming increasingly popular for their anti-inflammatory benefits.
Walnuts are one of the healthiest nuts & are well known for having a high content of omega-3 fatty acids. 1oz. of walnuts daily over a period of 2-3 months can help reduce MetS-related problems. Adding walnuts to your diet decrease the depositing of fat around the mid-section. Prostate & breast cancer has been found to be reduced by fairly large amounts of daily walnut consumption. Adults have been able to significantly increase their blood level of ALA with as few as 4 walnuts per day…
Figure 3. Desaturation and Elongation of Essential Fatty Acids. Humans can synthesize longer omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids from the essential fatty acids LA and ALA through a series of desaturation (addition of a double bond) and elongation (addition of two carbon atoms) reactions. Delta-6 desaturase (FADS2) is considered the rate-limiting enzyme in this metabolic pathway. Retroconversion of DHA to EPA in peroxisomes occurs at low basal rates and following DHA supplementation.
Bilberry extract is a relative of the blueberry and is high in anthocyanins, which have shown to decrease blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity. Bilberries seem to increase an enzyme which plays a crucial role in insulin secretion from the pancreas and regulation of fatty acid metabolism. #bilberry #metabolism #health #vitamins #superfood #nutrition

Coconut Matcha Latte
Metabolism Boosting Coconut Matcha Latte | In this recipe, I combine matcha with another powerhouse superfood coconut oil. Coconut oil is another metabolism boosting food full of medium chain fatty acids which are used by the body in a different way to other fats. Combined, they create a delicious metabolism boosting drink with a light caffeine kick. via: @lauraagarwilson
