Are the Ingredients in Your Food Stealing from Your Body?
Unless you are living on your own farm and are completely self-sufficient, there’s a pretty good chance that you are eating at least some pre-packaged foods. Big Food manufacturers are always pushing their research scientists to find way to make their foods cheaper for them, even if it means not healthier for you. Big Food doesn’t give a hoot about you or your health; they only want you to keep buying their product and to find ways to make more money doing it.
For many of us, even when we are eating what we think is a fairly well-balanced diet, we are probably eating some of these packaged foods, such as cereal, yogurt, and frozen whatever. Unfortunately, this also means that we are probably nutrient deficient in some way, even when we consume supplements to try to make up for it. On average, Americans are over-fed, but under-nourished. Sad, but true.
How does this happen? Believe it or not, it’s because of some of the ingredients that are found in those packaged foods. They literally steal nutrients from your body. So you can consume those nice, fresh, organic veggies, and then lose most of the nutrients by having that soda to drink.
When you remove those nutrient thieves from your diet, your body can actually receive the nutrients that you eating. Keep reading and find out who these thieves are, so you can remove them from your foods.
1. Distilled Water
This is commonly found in carbonated drinks and even in some juices, but disturbingly, more and more people are drinking distilled water believing that it is the only true “pure” water around. It’s true that distilled water will remove all the impurities that are found in water, but it also removes vital nutrition’s and trace minerals that are absolutely vital to the body. Distilled water causes an electrolyte imbalance in the body. Your body will attempt to make up for those missing electrolytes by pulling them from your tissues.
Eventually, however, your body will have no more electrolytes to pull from which will result in weakness, headaches, fatigue, muscle cramps, and an abnormal heart rate. By the way, distilled water is so acidic that it can become a major health problem because the pH of distilled water is not naturally found in nature. Long term consumption of distilled water can cause mineral loss which will greatly increase your risk of hypothyroidism, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, and coronary artery disease.
Soy, sometimes listed as soy lecithin, hydrolyzed plant protein, protein isolate, textured vegetable protein, or even vegetable broth, is found in literally hundreds of packaged foods, including soy milk, nutrition supplements, baked goods, soups, pasta, and salad dressings to name a few. In short, soy robs your body of important enzymes and iron. This once healthy plant has now become a serious source of toxicity, especially over the past 30 years or so.
In case you weren’t aware of it, about 99 percent of the soy grown and used in food products is a GMO. Even soy labeled as non-GMO or organic has been exposed to the same problems as GMO soy, too many pesticides and too many chemically based fertilizers. Only wheat causes humans more health problems than soy. Due to nutrient depletion from consuming soy, you can expect numerous health problems including thyroid hormone depletion, allergies, growth issues, infertility, and even certain types of cancer.
