					Tip 4. Anti-Aging Cures: The Example of Lecithin
To stay young, take lecithin.
Besides reducing the cholesterol level in the blood, there is mounting
scientific evidence to
suggest several other benefits from lecithin. It has been suggested that its
intake in sufficient
amounts can help rebuild those cells and organs which need it. Lecithin
helps to maintain their
health once they are repaired. It may mean that a deficiency of lecithin in
the diet may be one of
the causes of ageing and that its use may be beneficial in retarding the
ageing process.
Edward R. Hewith in his book, The Years Between 75 and 90 says," with
older people the fats
remain high in the blood for from five to seven hours and in some cases as
long as 20 hours,
thus giving the fats more time to become located in the tissues. If lecithin is
given to older people
before a fatty meal, it has been found that the fats in the blood return to
normal in a short time, in
the same way they do in younger people."
Tip 5. Getting to Know the Basic Concepts of Human Nutrition: The
Example of Potassium
Potassium deficiencies are associated with breathlessness, fatigue,
insomnia and low blood
sugar. Potassium is essential for healthy heart muscles. Nuts and unrefined
grains are good
sources of potassium. Calcium is a natural sedative. Deficiencies can
cause fatigue,
nervousness and tension. Dairy products, eggs, almonds, and soyabeans
are rich sources of
calcium. Magnesium is known as nature's tranquilliser and is associated
with the prevention of
heart attack. Deficiencies may lead to excitability, irritability, apprehension
and emotional
disorders. Magnesium is also necessary for absorption of calcium and
potassium and is found in
many fruits, vegetables, seeds, dates and prunes.
