Is Blood a SUPERFOOD?

I get asked about it every single day. I don’t know if they just have an affinity for certain bodily fluids. Maybe we should have discussed that in the know, nut november article outside of vampires, the most famous consumption of blood, is probably the Masai tribe.

In Africa they prized the blood and milk of their cattle, as well as the cows themselves in Maasai culture. The size of your herd indicates your status in the community, so accumulating animals, instead of consuming them, is common practice. This is why milk plays a huge role in a traditional Maasai diet in some part, in almost every single meal, whether it be soured milk or butter, they aren’t complete carnivores, though.

What most people fail to mention is that the Masai also eat tubers, honey and forest plants, so by harvesting milk and blood from the animal. The Maasai tribe are able to keep their herd size larger important to their cultural beliefs, but it also makes sense in the context of famine having a steadily available. Food source of blood and milk is better for survival. Then going all-in on a beef BBQ.

We know that most tribes and groups of people did not drink blood for one reason or another. Fishermen try, for instance, or even one that hunts smaller animals. But what, if you did, hunt the larger rumen and animals, you wanted say a bison or caribou? Yes, there might be a pool of blood where you kill the animal where you cut open the animal, but even so the blood would not have been drank by everyone in the tribe.

It would also be very difficult to gather it’s not like the Maasai, where they have a controlled bleeding of the animal, and normally the animal is bleeding all over the place, as you were, hunting it or killing it plus blood coagulates very quickly, making it even more Difficult to store for later consumption right here I have some blood and this one on the left. It has like a gelatinous mass of you know the blood protein and and the plasma is on the outside it just completely separated in this one.

I added some vinegar to it and that prevented some coagulation, but, as you guys could see, there’s still this jell-o blob of blood. In the middle of the jar I had to go down to a live kill market. To get this, I had to buy the whole goat just to get the blood, and this is all of the blood from one entire goat that we controlled the bleeding of, and I don’t know how you would prevent coagulation. Maybe if you just strained out the fibrin using a mesh strainer when you kill the animal, but our indigenous ancestors didn’t have a mesh strainer.

This makes it very unrealistic to be consuming blood. The Maasai tribe did, you, know, stir it as it came out of the animal and they had clay pottery. So you know, logistically speaking, it might be possible, but definitely a rare occurrence in humans in our natural environment, and this is why blood is so hard to access. Now you have to purchase it directly from the slaughterhouse. It’s illegal to sell in most states due to regulation concerns mainly for waterborne illnesses, and it’s like an extra step in the slaughtering process.

Normally they would just kill the animal and bleed it out on the floor now, they’d have to gather the blood, maintain that it’s just not worth it for most lauder houses from a nutritional perspective. Blood is almost entirely protein, so it contains a large amount of the water-soluble B. Vitamins probably has some vitamin C when fresh is an excellent source of sodium, but not so much any other minerals.

Blood is incredibly high in iron and it has some copper as well, but no significant amount of the other elements. There’s some cholesterol and we know cholesterol – is needed for many metabolic functions, especially the absorption of vitamin d3. So, on paper I like blood for two reasons: one is that it has readily available B vitamins just milk does it has a high bioavailability, because it is a liquid high amount of amino acids, very good for methylation.

If you had a headache and drank blood or milk for that matter, it would probably be gone in minutes due to the antioxidant benefits of these foods is that blood is perfect for someone who has anemia. Obviously it has a ridiculous amount of iron, but it also has copper, which is needed to absorb iron in the body. Some people might think that blood has adrenaline, but the half-life of adrenaline is only a few minutes, and even if you did drink blood straight from an animal full of adrenaline, it doesn’t get absorbed by consumption.

Just because you’re putting something in your body doesn’t mean you digest it or absorb it. You would have to physically inject adrenaline into your veins to feel the effects. Any benefits people see from drinking blood would be from easily available B vitamins and the high iron content. Most notably the high bioavailability of the amino acids in the blood, so we could I mean we could try this, I’m not too enthusiastic about this, because this is mostly vinegar and it’s still coagulated.

It’s like Alvin. It’s a. I didn’t put that much vinegar in here. This is an organic red wine, vinegar, a pretty good taste, but you know I put like three tablespoons in here but, as I just showed you guys, there’s like a jello, a jello mass of blood in here. So I don’t know if I’d be like drinking the plasma and not having the blood, but, like you know, the Messiah would eat this like this blood mass, they would eat that, and now this doesn’t really taste that bad.

You know you could. Let me just get a piece of it like you could eat this. I mean it tastes a little bit like vinegar and then on the end. I get that really really metallic irony. Copper tastes like you can really taste that iron and the copper in this blood – and this is super fresh. You know this animal was literally slaughtered yesterday, so this blood doesn’t have that much flavor to it, but you but yeah the vinegar is really overpowering in here.

Not really much to talk about from a flavor standpoint, slightly metallic, as I said, do I see this as something that’s very hydrating? No, you would take a few sips of this and you would not want any more of this. Maybe if you were deficient in iron or anemic, you know you would start shoving this and really crave it. From a hydration perspective, I’ve tried a Massiah diet of blood and milk for a little while it’s just not enough to hydrate yourself, I still needed to drink water, mainly because you know when I drank the blood.

I just didn’t really want to drink that much of it and when I drank the milk you know your body has to process all of the other nutrients in the milk. Milk is very high in calcium, so, depending on your individual genetic capacity to tolerate milk and blood, you might need to drink water. You might not need to drink water if you’re really adept at handling lactose. If you have a very active lactase gene, you might be able to hydrate on just blood and milk, but by no means should you think it’s superior to do so.

Isn’t more natural? I wouldn’t say that you know blood or milk has any less contaminants than our modern water supply that it’s any different for you and it’s definitely more stress on the kidneys on the body to consistently process nutrients, minerals and elements. And then, if you’re, one of those people that you know don’t really have to drink that much fluid on a daily basis, that’s a whole different story and, as we went over from the nutrient perspective, it’s just iron and copper.

You know there’s no significant fat Seibel vitamin content here, although the protein B, vitamins, iron and copper are definitely, you know a welcome addition to any diet. So I guess that’s it. If you guys could please, like the article, you know getting my hands on this blood and dressing up a it’s a little bit of work here and there I spend like 12 bucks on this vampire cape and I’m getting flashbacks from my bartending days, because this is Actually, my my bartending uniform that I had in a couple places for those of you guys asking like: can we get blood on Frankie’s free-range meat, maybe in the future the more support we get from? You guys the more inclined we are to to go out and seek those things, but right now the amount of people asking for blood and how difficult it is for us to get it.

It doesn’t make sense. You know not that many people wanted the price we’d have to charge to get. It is extra nautical. So just keep that in mind guys. That being said, we do have a bunch of nutrient dense animal foods available on Frankie’s free-range meat that are a much better addition to your diet than drinking blood. From a vitamin perspective, if you guys could please subscribe, if you haven’t, I definitely hit that Bell icon and, above all, please share the article.

If you guys would like to support me further, you can also check out Frankie’s Naturals for minimal ingredients, minimally processed hygiene and cosmetic products. Thanks again for joining me guys, if you’d like to reach out to me for consultations, send me an email, Frank, a to Fano at gmail.Com. I know I said I was selling a carnivore doodoo the other day for you vegans, but unfortunately we don’t have any carnivore blood for you.

Guys, though, would make you a lot healthier. You

Caviar is a SUPERFOOD!

Salmon roe is here. There are many names for caviar from fish eggs to roe. Some of you guys might have gone to a sushi restaurant and seen ikura, masago or 2b go on the menu, but caviar is technically supposed to be from wild beluga sturgeon in the Caspian Sea. Now caviar is used as a general term for any salted fish eggs. What they do is they take the egg sac out of the fish.

They separate the eggs from the membrane they lightly salt them, and then they either put it in jars or cans. Freeze, it refrigerate it whatever caviar might just be the healthiest food on the planet. Just like liver, it contains all of the vitamins, minerals, elements and fatty acids. Our bodies need, in their most bioavailable form the animal form. The nutrients in certain plant foods require conversion in the body, whereas the nutrients from animal foods are directly absorbed.

The main discrepancy between liver and fish eggs is that liver has a substantially higher vitamin A retinol content and fish eggs have much higher omega-3 fatty acids. Epa and DHA. The DHA in fish eggs is actually in the phospholipid form, which is said to pass through the brain, much easier and be absorbed better, but that’s never actually been proven. In a study I found out about fish eggs in Weston prices, book nutrition and physical degeneration.

It’s a book about a dentist who explore native people that were still living off of the land, their natural diets. These people actually used fish eggs as fertility and nutrition for pregnant women, nursing women, children during developmental stages for its incredibly high nutrient content. If indigenous groups did not have access to fish eggs, they would always have another high nutrient food, maybe some type of shellfish, fatty insect or organ meat in Alaska.

When food is plentiful, full and bears have fattened up, they actually killed the salmon and only eat the brain and the eggs of the salmon. That’s because those are the two highest nutrient foods on the animal. If you think about it, a fish egg is basically a tiny fish, so it encapsulates the entire nutrition of the animal. It’s like eating nose to tail except you don’t have to eat. You know the whole animal piece-by-piece, regardless of what fish the eggs are from.

The nutrient profile is similar per calorie, that is, salmon eggs, for instance, are higher in fat. They have a higher fat percentage, so the nutrients might be more concentrated, but calorie for calorie all fish eggs are equal, whether it’s cod, roe herring, roe, sturgeon, Roe. All fish roe is a super nutrient-dense food. It’s just the facts of protein ratio varies depending on the species of fish, and we can also assume it matters if the fish is farm raised or wild caught, that will directly affect the nutrients and the omega profile of the fish eggs.

You have to be pretty careful with making sure that the fish eggs, the caviar you’re buying, is not from farmed low quality fish that the fish is on some type of natural diet. So the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio is correct. If we take a look at 100 grams of salmon roe, which is 200 calories, the vitamin profile is literally complete. We have a decent amount of vitamin, A all of the B vitamins, vitamin C vitamin D, vitamin E – and there is definitely vitamin K in salmon roe, because vitamin K is contained in all high quality animal foods.

The test is expensive to conduct, so sometimes they don’t test for it. The vitamin C might actually be misleading because sometimes they add ascorbic acid. As a preservative to fish eggs. Now fish eggs do contain vitamin C, but usually when you salt, the food, it loses its vitamin C content. The anti scorbutic properties of the food are lost, so I have to do some nutrient testing in the future on salmon or get more correct data.

Maybe we’ll do that later this year, the vitamin D and E content are incredibly high for an animal food. These nutrients are usually specific to higher cholesterol, animal foods such as eggs, brains and, of course, fish eggs. Fish eggs are also complete from both a mineral and element perspective as they contain every single one of them in reasonable amounts. It’s worth noting. They have a significant iodine content as well.

So if you’re consuming fish eggs on a daily basis, you probably don’t need to supplement iodine fish eggs even have conjugated linoleic acid, which has been shown to have various health benefits. They contain arachidonic acid as well a fatty acid, specific to animal foods and, just like DHA, our brains require a certain amount of arachidonic acid. Every day. Of course, fish eggs are incredibly high in epa and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.

They are unparalleled, possibly with the exception of animal brains. Of course, I wouldn’t be mr. Salmon roe if I didn’t have some for you guys to taste today. Here we have some red caviar and the beauty of this food is a testament to its nutrient profile. Up close, we see the very pretty red pearls, almost as pretty as me, and when we bring up fish eggs, we have to bring up the conversation of food palatability, how a food tastes in its raw natural state and in the case of fish eggs yeah.

They added a little bit of salt to them, but there really isn’t a tastier food in nature that hasn’t been changed, and if we’re going to look at foods in nature and ones that tastes the best without cooking them, seasoning them fermenting them. They are all animal foods. When you ferment, an animal food, you can increase the palate ability in a natural way, but a lot of the modern things we do from salting to processing to very specific cooking methods.

You know unless you’re just throwing a piece of meat over a fire. You can argue that it’s not too. Naturally, this food palatability is important because, usually how a food tastes in its natural state is an indicator of its nutrient properties. If you were to take bone now, for instance, that had been fermenting in the femur bone of an animal for a couple of weeks, because the Coyotes couldn’t break into it, then it would taste like cheese and the reason these foods taste good is because every single Nutrient in the food reflects in the taste of it.

If a food has certain vitamins, minerals, elements and fatty acids in the food, you can literally taste them in the boot. You can taste, copper, you can taste iodine, you could taste every single vitamin that’s contained in the food and when you have all the vitamins in balanced amounts like we do in fish roe, it makes sense that the food tastes amazing, and not only does it taste. Amazing in its unaltered State it also satiates you very quickly.

If you have a few tablespoons of fish roe you’re going to be full, I would love to see someone try to eat like a pound of salmon or at once. You would get a couple bites in and feel full because it’s so nutrient dense, it’s literally satiating your appetite, although there is little variance in the nutrient profile calorie for calorie the taste of fish eggs varies greatly. That’s why some fish eggs are super expensive, like sturgeon, caviar and salmon.

Roe isn’t really too expensive. The fish eggs will literally taste like the fish they are coming from. So salmon roe is going to taste like salmon when tasting fish, eggs or caviar. I believe you’re supposed to use a plastic or nonmetal spoon because it alters the taste. I’ve never really noticed this, but let’s give some of the ROE a try, there’s so much going on here. You have that cholesterol, richness, that’s specific to foods like eggs and brains.

You have a slight iodine flavor. You have. I know that complex salmon flavor it’s like tasting the ocean in the form of a scrambled egg. That’s how I would describe the flavor. The texture is like a soft pearl that pops in your mouth and then that rich cholesterol, a liquid, comes out. This is like the best food you could feed to a baby or a child. Not only would they love it, it’s like super colorful and approachable.

The salmon roe is tasty. I would give it about an 8 out of 10 from a flavor perspective, but there’s a reason. Sturgeon Roe is so much more expensive. Here I have some hackleback roe. It’s a type of sturgeon. The pearls are black. This is what you think of when you, you know when you see caviar like the black fish eggs, yeah, there’s a reason, there’s a reason. Caviar is made from sturgeon. The flavor is completely different.

It’s buttery it’s more complex. It doesn’t have as much of an iodine flavor, of course, you’re not supposed to eat caviar with the spoon like this, but I mean you’re on a carnivore, a keto diet. This is ensuring you’re not getting anything negative. Now, if you’ve never tried sturgeon roe, it can be on the expensive side, but on Franky’s free-range meat, our goal is to make everything affordable. So we are taking a profit loss and providing it to everyone, so they can experience it.

This is something that maybe I would have once or twice a month on a special occasion: it’s not prohibitively expensive, but it’s expensive enough that you couldn’t really eat it every day, whereas you could eat the salmon or every day. So if you guys haven’t tried sturgeon Roe specifically, I encourage you just for the experience, I’m honestly one of those people who don’t really care about the experience with certain things, but when I ate sturgeon Roe for the first time I was like you know, it truly Is amazing, so if you guys would like to check out Frankie’s free-range meat comm, we are offering salmon roe in that portion, as well as the sturgeon row in the same portion.

This is half a kilo of salmon roe we’re going to be offering it in four containers because having one big container like this is a little ridiculous and the sturgeon Roe is going to come like this. It is in a one ounce container. So, thank you guys for joining me today. If you have any more questions about fish, roe, fish, eggs, caviar feel free to. Let me know down in the comments below, if you guys could please, like the article subscribe hit that Bell icon and share it.

If you can, if you guys would like to support me further, you can check out some of the other articles on my youtube, blog and, of course, place an order with Frankie’s free-range meat.

Butter is a SUPERFOOD!

I can’t believe it’s not butter or Earth Balance on their toast. Yet you ins have been consuming animal fats for hundreds of thousands. If not millions of years, it is really unfortunate that this idea that fat is bad for us, is so ingrained in our culture that people will shy away from foods that are the most important for our health.

In the case of butter, most people are actually unaware of the vitamin content of butter, as well as the other beneficial properties, particularly in regards to fatty acids. When we say butter is a superfood, we really mean it is a superfood. It is an excellent source of vitamins, A E and K and, depending if it was on summer pasture, it can also have a fairly high vitamin d3 content. Now this kind of parallels to all grass-fed raw dairy and the important thing to keep in mind here is the vitamin content of the butter will correlate directly to the pasture quality that the animal was on.

But in the best case scenario, butter is an amazing source of these vitamins and, most importantly, it’s the animal version of these vitamins, its vitamin A in the form of retinol, its vitamin K in the form of k2. It’s vitamin D in the form of d3 and it’s present in large amounts of animal fat that allow it to be absorbed easier. Other well-known benefits of butter are its butyrate content and you’ll commonly hear C people talk about feeding beneficial gut bacteria fiber to produce butyrate, but you can actually just consume.

Butter increases, HDL cholesterol with people. Consider the healthy cholesterol and people that consume butter actually have lower rates of heart disease than people that do not. It’s also worth mentioning that, in addition to this considerable fat, soluble vitamin content, butter is also an excellent source of linoleic and linolenic acid. So, although might not have an incredibly high amount of preformed epa and DHA, the body can convert those precursor fatty acids into epa and DHA, especially in the presence of the high fat content.

Here today I have a fairly dramatic and interesting comparison here we have on the left raw farm, grass-fed butter, and here we have on the right. You know your basic supermarket white butter. This is white, doesn’t really have much of a smell to it very classic. Like you know, buttery taste that you’re familiar with when you grew up this butter is a deep yellow, has like a sweet, nutty smell to it, a really deep, vibrant, yellow color, and you know, if you look at the vitamin, A content on this, it does have Some vitamin A from whatever they’re feeding the animal, but it is very clear visually that this butter has a much higher carotenoid content in it because of the beta carotene that is in the grass of the cows are eating.

We can also assume that this butter has a substantially higher rk2 content, as well as other fat soluble vitamins, and not only does it have a substantially higher amount of these vitamins. In the case of this commercially raised butter, this might not really have any fat soluble vitamins at all, so we’re essentially transforming nutritionally empty food. That’s just calories into something that is an excellent source of nutrition.

This is why food quality plays such a huge role and why? I really don’t recommend people consume dairy unless they have access to high-quality raw, grass-fed dairy. Now you might be thinking Frank. Can I just buy things like Kerrygold, or can I buy grass with butter from the supermarket, and the answer really is? No because Kerrygold has been known for fraudulence many many times, it’s technically, not actually grass-fed grass-finished and they can dye the color of the butter to make it yellow.

So what happens when a fat is pasteurized? Is you lose the enzymes and the enzymes can help digestion? You also lose some of the nutrient content. Is this? You know kind of an end-all, be-all thing. No, I mean, technically speaking, grass-fed butter from the supermarket is still better than foods that a lot of people have access to, but keep in mind you might be consuming rancid fats when they heat these fats they last much longer, whereas, if you bought, you know cultured Butter, it ferments naturally over a period of time, and it’s something your body is supposed to be.

You know consuming. You know natural fermented, bacteria and enzymes. You know if that is the. If the supermarket stuff is your only option by all means, and it’s your only source of fat, you can use it, but I would not be confident in the vitamin content of it. Nor would I be content in near the absence of rancidity or negative inflammatory factors. Maybe even some degree of histamine intolerance so keep that in mind when you’re buying butter from the supermarket – and you know I mean this stuff – isn’t cheap.

You know it’s ten to twelve dollars a pound depending on where you are so. There are definitely cheaper sources of high-quality fat that most people can find access to. Overall, it’s just one of those foods that is so delicious, it’s so tasty, and it’s amazing that it’s good for you, since I am allergic to their. What I actually do is, I usually take this and I put it in a dehydrator at a very low temperature and I pretty much make it into a raw clarified butter.

So I preserve the enzymes by keeping it raw, but I remove the casting protein that can cause inflammation for me. So thank you guys for reading.

Shellfish is a SUPERFOOD

We are referring to crab lobster mollusks like mussels, oysters clams shrimp, any fish with a shell. Essentially so does she is uh that she’s a little cold right now because he just got out of the fridge, but maybe he’ll he’ll spring up a little bit later so shellfish, it really is one of the most nutrient-dense foods we can consume it’s up there with Organ meats, egg yolks, the highest quality offcuts there are.

There are not any foods that to me take value over shellfish from a nutrient density perspective. They are all as valuable as things like liver all the foods that I talked about. Cod, liver oil, any super nutrient-dense food shellfish is up there. The reason I like shellfish, so much is because you are able to purchase a lot of it alive at a much fresher quality than other foods that we have access to.

In addition to that, it is a super approachable food in a sense that you know, people like shrimp, they like clams, they like oysters, whereas things like liver and a lot of the other organ meats that I tend to eat on the carnivore diet. People aren’t really as much of a fan of the main difference between shellfish and other fin fish is, of course, the accessibilty. It’s obviously much easier to go to a beach and pick up some clams or oysters than it is to spear or reel in a fish from the ocean.

So there’s plenty of evidence on various coastal regions for use of seafood and mollusks and mass exploitation of these nutritional resources during the Upper Paleolithic period. There’s also plenty of evidence that Neanderthals use fire to open up these shells and, interestingly enough, they tended to use the shells as decorations, whether as jewelry or kind of status, symbols of the person. So whether or not these foods play role in the actual evolution of humans due to the ease of caloric access, it is safe to say that various indigenous groups did prized shellfish.

They specifically fed these who’s to pregnant woman, a nursing woman, children couples looking to conceive. It was one of the foods that was gathered along with things like fish, roe, liver, very nutrient-dense, animal foods. If we want to talk from a scientific and paper value perspective of what nutrients occur in the shellfish, the main discrepancy is the high preformed DHA content. Normally in a ruminant animal, you can only get preformed DHA from consuming the brain tissue in regards to actual vitamin content of these foods.

They tend to be excellent sources of the B vitamins, as well as vitamin d3. To a lesser extent, these foods have pretty good amounts of all the fat soluble vitamins. You know this shellfish has vitamin A it. Has vitamin E? It has vitamin k2. It’s an amazing source of all the minerals and elements, of course iodine, but the main thing that shellfish has over other foods is specifically the DHA content and, of course, this correlates directly with how fatty the item is in the case of mussels.

Here they have a bit less fat than something like oysters, so oysters would have a higher DHA content per calorie for anyone not confident in the nutritional value of shellfish, there were literally groups of people that subsisted off of shellfish that were in just as good health As any other indigenous group in vilmer steffensen’s, the fat of the land when he examined skeletal, remains of coastal tribes, that subsisted only off of shellfish.

The skeletal structure, the development of the face, all of the markers for optimal health, were the same as groups of Eskimos. That we’re living off of fish mammalian meat, so there’s evidence anthropologically speaking that you can be just as healthy consuming only shellfish versus ruminant meat, and I would argue that some consuming shellfish now is going to be much healthier and get a much higher nutrient density in Their diet, because people tend not to consume those offcuts, those organ meats that are necessary to get complete nutrient density in the context of a whole ruminant animal, and you can imagine the reason being that these shellfish and this seafood is more nutrient dense nowadays, is that It is a complete food when you’re eating a whole shrimp, a whole mussel, a whole clam, a whole Easter that is equivalent to you eating, essentially the whole animal, whether it’s a cow or a pig or a sheep or lamb same thing with eating things like fish, Eggs or fish roe you’re, essentially it would, it would essentially be like shrinking down the entire cow and eating it in one bite to get the complete nutritional profile, but with who’s like mussels and oysters.

That is much more approachable to do now. Obviously, there are pros and cons to shellfish, the pros being it’s a very approachable food. It’s super nutrient dense. The cons are, of course, the concerns with farmed fish pollution in the water and, unfortunately, in this case, when the water is polluted, it can be so polluted and it can affect the taste of the animals so much that you cannot consume it.

In the case of grain fed steak, we can cover up the off accurate taste of grain fed fat by cooking it by putting salt and pepper on it. In the case of oysters, I have literally gotten oysters that have smelled like sewage and I smelled the outside of the oyster and it didn’t smell right. So I was like. Let me open it up. I open up the oyster, it was one of the worst smells. I have ever smelled in my life pure rotten sewage, so one of the major cons is the quality of this shellfish that you’re getting really does correlate with the sourcing of the ocean and that doesn’t really even matter if it’s wild squad or not.

Unfortunately, I can still be in polluted water, so you know one of the main reasons I don’t really consume shellfish as much as I would like to is partially because of that reason, another thing that people don’t really mention is it can be a little bit expensive. You know this crab, it’s like 25 bucks. Just for the crab I mean. Obviously, things like mussels and clams are actually very affordable about things like shrimp lobster.

Crab tend to be on the slightly more expensive side, but at the end of the day, with the amount of money people spend on BS, I don’t think any sort of food budget is going to be too expensive in the right context. So if you guys are looking to increase the nutrient density of your diet in a really approachable and delicious way, this is definitely one of the best ways to go about. I know I spout all the time about liver eat egg yolks, you know eating all these foods like fish roe, but this is an alternative.

You can have mussels crab lobster. All of these things several times per week. The real crush is going to be sourcing, high quality, wild-caught stuff and figuring out how the nutrient density is going to tie in to your overall diet if you’re not consuming it. To frequently I’m sure some people are going to ask about canned versions of these foods. Canned oysters canned muscles can crab meat, that’s pasteurized.

Obviously the fresh version is far better. It’s going to have a higher vitamin C content. The nutrients are going to be more preserved, but I wouldn’t say I would say, there’s lesser evils. You know you could buy fresh pasteurized crab meat, but that’s going to be way more expensive than the one that has additives in it. You can buy canned oysters or you can buy fresh, packed oysters at an Asian market.

You know you could buy clams that are already shuck. You could buy raw clam meat in certain places. That’s going to be far superior to the canned versions, the smoked versions, especially things that are packaged in oil, so for those of you guys, are asking that if canned food is the only thing you have access to that’s fine. If you guys want to talk about thin fish and things like anchovies and sardines, of course, those are great.

The main reason I’m focusing on shellfish in this article is because of that accessibility reason. You know the access that we would have had to shellfish is much easier than pind fish. So thank you guys for reading. You guys have any additional questions. Please let me know if you guys wan na check on my Amazon shop. There is some canned cod liver oil on there that I view as the nutrient-dense food to achieve some nutrient density in your diet.

If you guys are on Twitter or Instagram, please drop me a follow, and last but not least, if you guys would like to reach out to me in regards to optimizing the nutrient density of your diet, you can shoot me an email, Frank, a Tufano at gmail.Com Or contact me through the form on my website,

Eggs are a SUPERFOOD

They are an amazing source of nutrients. Unfortunately, that nutrient content depends directly on what the animal was fed and as with grass-fed beef, we see a three to ten times, variance in certain vitamins and fatty acids. So, although eggs high-fat dairy high quality animal products – well, I guess just animal products in general in American diets might be their only source of fat cycle.

Vitamins when you go to the farmers market and you pay six or seven dollars a dozen for truly pastured eggs. You really are getting six to seven times the amount of vitamins in some cases. So I guess I have to touch on the anti-nutrient Abedin in egg whites, which binds to biotin and inhibits the absorption and people are concerned about this. But if you cook the egg, it only really inhibits about 10 to 20 percent of that Abbadon.

Thankfully, there’s plenty of biotin in the egg itself to have a net gain of biotin in the body, so that anti-nutrient isn’t a concern. I mean if you want to reduce it up to 60 %. You have to boil the egg for like two minutes, and no one really does that. I personally have only consumed egg yolks in the past and I just find our reacts better to those and in Reverse the nutrient profile. 90 % of the vitamins are in the egg yolk a fair portion of the potassium and selenium and protein is in the egg white, but well if the actual fat sample vitamins and a lot of the minerals are just in the egg yolk.

So that’s why I’m comfortable with not consuming the white here today I bought five different types of eggs from a local Whole Foods and at the end here is just a regular commercial white supermarket egg. So we’re going to look at the color variants and what we can safely say here is you know, non-gmo pastured, eggs, darkest yolk, regular pastured eggs from this is vital forms slightly lighter yolk, the organic pastured eggs are slightly lighter again, the other brand of pastured eggs.

Again, we’re getting lighter and lighter as we go and the organic omega-3 eggs again lighter, but not as light as the Reg Supermarket commercial egg. One interesting thing, if you add salt to egg yolks, they get much darker. These are these egg yolks and after I added salt to them, they turn many many shades darker. Just a little interesting, culinary thing that I’ve noticed and we could we don’t have to look at these eggs.

I mean they’re old brown, eggs for the most part, different sizes and we can safely say yeah. The darker egg. Yolk has more carotenoids likely more other vitamins, but does it have a high omega-3 content because omega-3 content, even though it’s probably way higher in these eggs? You know it’s not indicated by the dark or egg yolk, so I was going to taste these eggs, but I’ve had some. I am allergic to eggs.

I’ve had some very bad reactions lately. So I can say, though, that I’ve tasted all of these in the past, and we I can give you comparison just from recollection – the higher-quality egg – will taste more chicken eat. Almost it sounds weird, but high-quality animal foods tend to remind you more of the animal which that came from. They tend to have more complex and nutty notes, and things like that and there’s definitely a significant age difference between these eggs and as with breasts with butter.

It tends to be for the better, whereas people will argue back and forth about grain fed and grass-fed steak all day regards to what I’ve personally used to do. As I said, I would eat only egg yolks. I would buy pastured eggs from my local farmer. I wouldn’t really eat any of these eggs. These range from like five to seven dollars a dozen. If I had to choose supermarket eggs, I’d probably eat the Omega 3 eggs, as well as the darkest color pastured eggs to get an even balance of omega-3s and vitamins.

Because we don’t really know if these pasture chickens are getting a high omega-3 content. But it might be, there might be more omega-3 in this egg yolk, as well as more vitamins than the Omega 3 eggs and, hypothetically speaking, if you’re, following a diet that has very high quality egg yolks in it, you wouldn’t really need any other vitamins. Besides vitamin C because vitamin A and omega 3 fatty acid concerns are obtained in high quality, eggs and eggs are the best source of vitamin k2 that most people have access to, and vitamin k2 is one of those we struggled to get so as much as I Talk about eating certain organs, various animal tissues – you can simply achieve most of your nutrient density with just 10 kilos and that’s nice, because it’s again a very easily accessible food for a lot of people.

Unfortunately, if you want to obtain 80 % of your calories from fat from only egg yolks, you might see some allergy problems come up that you didn’t have before, but it is definitely a good way to get a high amount of nutrient dense vitamins in your diet. I mean I mean if you were eating conventional store-bought eggs. I couldn’t really speculate on the vitamin content. I would say that you probably don’t need any more k2, but you might want to eat some liver and then maybe get some wild fish for your omega-3s.

The big three vitamins we are concerned about our vitamin, A vitamin k2 and omega-3 fatty acids and egg yolks kind of not all of those have fairly easily. I didn’t touch on the raw vs., cooked or kind of cooking temperatures and stuff. I have noticed that raw egg yolks digest way better than cooked eggs, but I have a feeling it has to do with the egg white. I’r sure, if you lightly cooked an egg yo, if there would be very little variance in digestion, but if you’re, if you’re cooking your eggs well done like really hard-boiled and stuff, you will notice digestive differences.

I mean I can’t really speculate on the nutrients lost, but I’m sure there is some degradation of passtime vitamins as well as watercycle’ vitamin B vitamins. You guys like to support me.

Best Keto foods at Sprouts | Best keto foods at sprouts.

What’s up family, I’m ray and I’m Joe, and we are two crazy kids. If you’re new, to our blog, welcome here onto crazy heroes, we do different things like product reviews. We do recipe articles, we talk about various keto topics and then every Monday we sit down on the couch for keto on the couch. We just kind of talk about.

What’s going on in our lives for the week, you can find us in different social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and we also have a website which is too crazy, ketones calm and that’s we’re going to find all four different recipes. Now we do upload at least five new articles every single week, so make sure you subscribe to our Channel and don’t forget the little bell icon in that way.

Every single time we upload a new article, you’ll be alerted to yeah. So it’s Wednesday we took the day off because I actually had to leave early morning prayer this morning dude. So you were out early yeah. I’ve been up since 5:00 a.M. Wow and I was going to vlog when I first woke up and I’m like yeah. That’s not happening so it’s now like 9:30, but we’re going to vlog anyway. We’re going we’re doing this.

I actually slept in later than normal this morning, because it’s Wednesday and Monday, my mom had cataract surgery on one of her eyes and we had to be like at the doctor’s appointment like really early, and then we had to follow up on Tuesday. Again, we had to get up like really early. So today I was like I pushed that snooze button like 50 times. What is the point of the snooze button? You don’t know it gives you like that false little sense of like reward reward.

I don’t get the snooze button at all to me. It’s the most annoying thing in the world. It goes off at five o’clock. You hit the snooze button at 5:05. It goes off again by the time you finally fall back asleep. That stupid thing is going off again, it’s it’s just a procrastination like adrenaline rush that you’re like okay, I’m getting away with something I’m getting away with something you’re really not because then you wind up having to like race for the rest of your day.

Let us know down in the comments section: are you a snooze button person or are you not a snooze button person? Usually I’m pretty good about not hitting the snooze button, but today it was Danny. Personally, I’m not even an alarm person. I just tell my body: hey: you need to get up in the morning 99 % of the time I do get up, or I just don’t go to bed the night before so when Caleb said like hey, are you ready to like head out? I was like oh, my gosh.

Is it? Is it time for school like? Oh, my goodness, I mean he got no breakfast this morning like nothing. Well, it’s like. I said it’s about 9:30. They just opened up a sprouts near us finally, and we had 45 minutes away, so it opened up like the week before the threat of the hurricane yeah, so we’re going to head over there now. Are you super proud of me because my mom visited this? Like a couple of weeks ago – and I didn’t go with her – I was like I’m saving myself for Joe well.

I did look online and saw that there were a couple of things on sale. So I’m glad that you waited to go with me good yeah. All right, let’s do this so Johnson, it uh we made it to sprouts and even though wear my jacket cuz, I know it’s going to be cold in the grocery store, I’m wearing my two crazy Keenan shirt and I’m actually going to be cold. I know somewhere in my sweatshirt, and I am like really pleased with the quality yeah.

These came from Amazon and it is a super good quality. I’m like really really happy with the part they’re not like itchy and weird, and the neck isn’t like choking me like all good things yeah, because before we even like put them up like on to Amazon, to actually sell which we order them for ourselves. So, like. Oh, let’s make sure that it’s good qualities going to be wonky, but no they’re good and they seem to be like true to size, yeah so yeah.

I think you’re wearing this all and it’s the ladies small and then this is the large yeah. So we’re going to head in the sprouts I’m going to drink a little bit more of my bank, I’m like addicted to these things like this is like not a good thing. We avoided them for a long time because people had said that, like once you bring them into your life, you won’t be able to function without them and like yeah yeah I mean there’s, the ingredients are okay.

They’re, not the soup, we’re cleanest, but they’re, not bad. I mean it is sweetened with slick erosive. You don’t like sucrose, you might not want to use them, but also and remember a lot of I see online. All the time people are talking about sucrose label. Sucrose is Splenda. No, it’s it’s not it’s. Splenda has suckler in it, but it also has a bunch of other stuff. I honestly don’t drink them that much just because they’re super sweet, they’re super sweet like almost overly sweet.

You drink one every couple days and the only reason I’m drinking them is because a few weeks ago they GNC had that they were selling them for a dollar a dollar. So we literally like we’re like 8 GS within like three miles of our house. We literally – and it was a limit of like four or something that are six. They have a limit yeah, so we, like literally all of us, were going into every GMC and getting the limit for the day.

So we ended up with, like I don’t like 40 of them. Oh my gracious, but you know yeah. Now I think once they’re gone, I don’t plan on like loading up on them. Honestly, I think, as far as like an energy drink goes, I like the stevia energy, drink or Z via this w bran energy drink, and actually the only place that we’ve ever been able to find them in a store front have been sprouts. Yes route tell them.

We usually get them from Amazon and have them dropship to the house, but I’m hoping that sprouts hasn’t, but maybe they have a different flavor or something yeah. I like the zvo ones. These actually give me too much energy, sometimes yeah, like you’re, like oh, my gosh. What am I going to do? There’s so much ladies, give you the perfect amount of energy. They have done a lot of funny articles about like people punching trees, and I mean just being an idiot like just a jokey one like Caleb was showing me.

One was like bang and like makes me act like a crazy person. Well, I made the mistake the other day, though of I drank one of these and then I was going to my game and I’ve been working outside all day, so I’m like oh, I need to take some electrolytes, so I drank a zip Fez within 15 minutes Of drinking one of the oh, my lord, that was a mistake. Well, I am excited that. Not only is there sprouts here, but there’s also Dollar Tree and across the street, there’s all these, so this is like the perfect shopping hub for me yeah.

So let’s go in we’re going to see, I don’t think I’ll, be able to film in sprouts we’ll see if we can kind of sneak stuff, but it will at least show you what we get when we come out. Yes and then now we’re going to go hit, you want hit dollar treaty we’re going to hit all these, then we’re going to home and film some articles and we’ll show you what guy we’re going to eat for lunch later today. So they have the Petersons brand stuff: we’ve got Peterson’s hot dogs, Peterson’s bacon and Peterson’s sausage.

Patties love it. This is actually a really good price on this premium crab. It’s like grill crabmeat, the claw meat, and it’s only ten dollars talking about doing a article on these fake meat point things they have the beyond me and they have the sausages. They have light light and the light light which I think is really expensive. But at six dollars I don’t know, I think we should try it. You want to do a article on fake meat Rachel.

No, I mean we’re talking like a carb per hotdog. Well, we’re going to get the burger all right, so you’re still looking eight carbs per burger. I know, but we’re going to we have to see. Is this as good as real beef Yeah right? Try these just not make myself pain. What is it six dollars for? Basically, just eggs and cauliflower, I feel like we could make this. What do you think Joe? We have to try? I really want to try them, but they’re too expensive from the line.

This is some of the best coffee creamer. There is, and it’s on sale for 49 – probably the safest way for me to bind that zero $ 0.99 like single, serve things. This way, you don’t overdo it yeah, because I will eat that entire container. Look at this now don’t go nuts soybeans bread. I think we’re getting a little far now, if you can come up with a chocolate D spread Joe, that could have way less carbs than this, because this has 10 carbs for a tablespoon.

Then I feel like we would be very rich people. Chocolate mixed with e sounds delish. Please make this happen. This is our second favorite and butter, and it’s on sale for $ 1 off of time, so we’re going to get something while we’re on and I think we’re going to try there geek. I started to get like really scared, because, like look over here, it was like 849 on sale. I was like is that a dozen? But now we have a that’s an incredible deal 399 for the happy egg company way to achieve it.

The awesome, but we have 12 dozen eggs in our refrigerator right now. I don’t think we need any eggs. What is this one? The farmer’s hen house that looks cute is this true lime, true orange they’re, coming out with seasoning blends lime, garlic and cilantro or orange ginger, get that orange ginger. It comes out hey. We know these guys. They go together like awesome and awesome. They even have the LA cantos chocolate chips.

Yes abou, those you’re interested, I know on the website. They only sell them in like packages of eight or ten you can buy in here now $ 9. It is so nice to start seeing more and more keto products in the stores drop enough, BOM calm. I do think it’s cheaper on the website, though, and we have the a coupon code. It’s too crazy, Cheetos they’re, coming out with, like a coating mix almost like reminds me of like shake and bake.

So they have this one they’re suggesting goes with like coconut shrimp. They have a recipe on the back. This one is if you’re wanting to make pork chops she’s basically shaken though, and this one is for avocado fries. What’s the ingredients almond meal, flaxseed, paleo powder, herbed, salt, free, all-purpose, seasoning, nothing, bad! I think we should try one of these. What is it 3? Total carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber on this one: let’s try this one, because it will do this.

One is 3 and 2. I bet you could do a chicken with this also so excited because cauliflower tortilla was and then I turned it over and a serving size. There’s 22 net carbs in a serving size like I could eat this entire package. But, like ya know, oh my goodness, I know we don’t need any TV. I have a wall of ZD abut. Look at this, so the six packs are on sale for 399, but the 10 packs are on sale for 3 and refine sicán.

The best price I’ve ever gotten is 60 cent suggest what see all those 10 packs I’m buying every one of them right now. Vivia wall, so probably joe, is going a little crazy, but this is the best deal on TV we’ve ever seen. We actually even gave a 12-pack to another lady because she was like. Can I have just one so Sacha Inchi is something that you see in a lot of products and it’s got some great macro, so you’re, looking at 13 grams of fat, 9 grams of protein there’s five total carbs and five fiber.

So this is fantastic they’re! Actually, really delicious, but they’re kind of expensive. It’s $ 24 for this jar, which honestly isn’t terrible. I mean, if you buy macadamia nuts you’re going to you know, spend that much. I would get them, but I don’t feel like spending $ 25 right now and as I’m spending all that money on vivia right, the same thing for Mocambo beans. Look at this. It is ten fat. Six protein you’ve got 12 grams of carbohydrates, but nine Dara, Terry dietary fiber and the serving size is 12 of these giant beans, and it’s actually got some great serotonin compounds.

Omega-9 fatty acids, it’s the 30 % fiber. I hope we don’t run out of zviad Joe. They were looking at us a little crazy buying all that dvi-i look at his crazy. However, the deal was so good and it was either what ten, ten four three, ninety three, ninety nine or you could have six for 399, and I was reading people pick up. The six-pack it happened all of the time when I worked at Party City, though they they have a standing deal that you would get like.

If you buy one thing of cups, you got another package for free and all of the time people would be like. I don’t want the free one. I don’t want the second one cuz, I don’t know where I’m going to store it, and it’s like how about like, given to somebody. I don’t know where we’re going to store all the vivia. But how do you think I went down, but I felt bad so, as I’m loading up literally every 12-pack, they have there.

We were shelf coloring. This lady comes up and she’s like. Are you buying them all and on my wall? Oh yeah, I’m like what flavor do you want? She was like just one root beer. I’m like okay! Here you go. I felt bad that that is my favorite, but we don’t want somebody going without well. She was the only smart one that I saw actually buying the 10 pack. She picked up the six pack and then wait wait.

A second is that right. Why would I want to pay the same amount for less? It made no sense, but I readed like four people doing, but I actually was talking to a Publix cashier, and she said that that was something that she saw. All the time to where they’d have like buy one get one free for like toilet paper, and I don’t want the free one and they they were like now I’ll just want the one: let’s go over quickly, what we bought.

So we don’t make this too too long, so we got we’re going to try there cheese, cheese, snacks, cheese bites yeah, they had these cheese bites. They were on sale for two dollars: a bag. Actually, what a try one and we got. What is the day we got cheddar and I think one of that flavor was massive, but these are the just. The ingredients were red, cheddar cheese, which is milk, salt, lactic, acid, microbial rennet, and that’s it and carotene for coloring.

They seem like they’re just slightly smaller and poofier, but it’s a hundred and fifty calories per serving there’s two servings in the whole bag. 12 grams of fat, zero, carbs, 11 grams of protein. Those are good cause, you’re, really good. My grilling up mmm, like some of the best we’ve, had very buttery. Okay. What else we got in that bag? We got yeah. We showed this. That’s our second-favorite butter, it’s about never on sale, but it was until cheaper than carry gold to that.

We got some. Okay, so I bought this air chilled Organic ground chicken. It was on sale for like four dollars off a package, and you know what I’m doing this. Can you guess I’m going to try to duplicate the real good jalapeno poppers, but actually make it so that you can taste the cheese and jalapeno? Oh, if you do that, I will be so happy. That’s what the purpose of this is and then we got look. Some raw shrimp yep, so this shrimp was on sale like seven dollars off a pound, so I bought two pounds of it so that we can make our jambalaya that we’ve been making.

Oh, it’s so good! Then we got some bacon yeah bacon. Did you see this deal on the bacon? I did not five dollars off a pound for the uncured bacon, so I bought two four two two two two two pound packages BAM. So we had four pounds of die and we got some of your creamer. Well, the creamer is kind of for you. We got two of this one, for this is the best creamer. This is the chi-chu ki tu and a serving sizes, three tablespoons and it’s got MCT oil in it.

It’s got some protein in it: 50 calories per serving five total grams of fat, three grams of protein, zero carbohydrates in three grams and three tablespoons, and it is super they have the name right. Yes, super the ingredients in this purified water whey protein concentrate cream, coconut MCT, oil, monk, fruit, natural flavors, now the natural, vanilla, flavor, natural, flavor, potassium phosphate and gle and gum we got one of the haystacks I like that flavor, but I don’t know why.

But I’m not a huge hazelnut creamer fan I should be. This is the same company that makes us super coffees which I’m in love with, but I could never find like less than three dollars and fifty cents in it yeah that’s an invention when we just make our own but yeah this stuff really good. It was on sale like two dollars off and did you see the only reason we bought three of them expires May of 2020? I really feel like we’ll drink it, but so long as you don’t open it it.

Don’t you open it. It’s going to go bad. So the key is: don’t open until you need it, so you know you’re going to use it nope. So I’m interested though what is everybody else’s? Favorite creamer flavor, like I like hazelnut you like vanilla, you like mocha, I like vanilla, I like hazelnut, I’m not a aged mocha, so comment down below and let us know what do you like to put in flavor your coffee with yeah? What else we got? We got a whole bunch of these guys yeah I bought like these were on sale, three four five, which is about 30 cents, 40 cents less than we normally take.

I like to treat myself with them every once in a while. We don’t buy a lot of them, so I think I bought like 10 of them or nine of them. I think I bought. We got some of the good tummy, I think heavy whipping cream. This is I like this one at organic pasture-raised. It doesn’t have any care gained in it, they use Galang gum instead, and so we do sprightly spring for this, especially if we’re making some Aikido Chow ice cream.

It makes a huge difference: d yeah. We got some gooey normally by the oldies key, but this one was on sale. I wanted to try this one, because this is the refrigerated and it’s usually expensive. It’s vital farms. Yeah. Do you wan na? Do this? Oh yeah sausage. We got this sausage. It is so hard to find sausage that doesn’t have sugar or dextrose, or something like that. Usually we just end up dealing with that and now we’ve got to find a whole new sausage place and meat place where our meat place.

Penn Dutch announced yesterday they’re going out of business like today, yeah. Yes, we have to find a new place. I think we’re going to go a lot more to like us wellness and like and a butcher box, because after them that was the next cheapest. The only reason we didn’t do, a lot of stuff from you know, butcher box, and us wellness is because you can heat pan Dutch prices, yeah and and easy access like you walked into the store the same day and got it yeah.

But us wellness and butcher box, their prices actually be Costco prices a lot of times. It’s amazing they’re really good deals it well. I will link down below. You got some oil, oh yeah. We needed some more coconut oil spray. We just use this for, like our waffle makers and stuff, like that, we got some of this new season yeah. We can saw that this season Rachel found this. This looks really interesting, maybe put on some chicken or some steak or something I’m excited to try it.

I almost want to like crack it open and see what it tastes like right now, but it’s orange orange ginger. I bet it’s good. Let’s try it they’re all thinking we’re gross for them for sanitary. Hmm! I don’t need that for food. That is good. It’s uh, curry, good. It is I like some curt stuff, especially if you’re doing like a an orange chicken yeah. That’s what I’m thinking great for our ice cream. It’s good and honestly.

I use this when I want to be more heavy-handed with a creamer like a latte, because this is it’s a serving sizes. Eight fluid ounces. Now, I’m not going to use eight fluid ounces in a coffee, but I might want to have more than a tablespoon or two in a coffee, and this is one carbohydrate total and one fiber, so zero carbs. This is, you know, really fun memories. This is really good if you want a latte, if you miss Starbucks right and you want a latte where it’s 3/4 milk, like we usually use like 14 or 18 ounce mugs yeah 8.

Ounces of this add in your coffee. Maybe a few drops among fruit sweetener. If you want this is our favorite one from them. This is the coconut almond milk. They also have almond milk unsweetened. I was going to say you got ta check the label on the back. They also had a couple of flavored varieties, they all have sugar and it all has sugar in them and then they also came out with a creamer yeah. They shelf-stable like a creamer, but I looked on the back and the carbs weren’t great on that.

So I would stick with this if you’re interested this is pretty much we use. We’ve walked away from by buying the almond, milks and stuff like that, because again, there’s no cure gain in this, and the KeyArena seems to like be funny with us, sometimes cuz. I love the the super coffee. I love the creamer, it’s delicious, but sometimes I want I want to. I want a long run, a lot you know, or I have multiple cups of coffee, as we well know like a ton, so I can’t afford to have you know two or three tablespoons of heavy whipping cream 14 times a day right now.

This is lunch. Lunch / dinner, so we’ve always gotten the Whole Foods one. So I figured let’s try the sprouts version. Yeah bacon Halep got a two bacon, jalapeno cheeseburgers mmm, and then I got two of this was the cowboy burger, oh yeah, blue cheese, cowboy burger. That’s what I want: no, no, no we’re not doing that. So what we’re going to do is we’re going to make one of each one today, okay, then we’re going to split it, so we each get a half and then we’ll have the other ones tomorrow, because I need to be able to taste both yeah and we Have hard time sharing? Yes with it’s like hey, that’s your dinner.

You know we kinda have a buddy there’s nano, so I think that is everything that we got we ended up. Are you ready? I know Irene want to say it out loud. We spent two hundred and thirteen dollars, which is a lot of money for us to go grocery shopping, but we haven’t been grocery shopping in like since the last time we did a article. I almost think we went with you guys last time, yeah, it’s been at least a month yeah.

You know I mean there. We may spend like just buying some like little stuff here and there maybe 20 to 30 dollars a week, but we pretty much stockpile stuff in our freezers whenever something’s on sale or like zeebee, or something like that. Because of all of this money that we spent. I think like sixty eight dollars of it was just on the cbs-tv Imani, but we’re good on TV for a long time. One would hope I would well we’re good on my flavors, but Maria tells God I 50 % of what we bought.

There are Rachel’s flavors yeah. Well, when the lady said like can I have a root beer and I was like you want ginger, ale and she’s like no root beer, ginger ale, it’s like no root beer. Do I think you want ginger ale, it’s delicious! That’s Rachel’s! Favorite flavor great beer, so we’re going to go home, we’re going to unpack we’re going to make our launch and then we have some filming some other articles to do including a keto chow ice cream yeah.

Well, we got home from sprouts and I went to make the burger is that way, bah and we remember, we have chicken wings. I completely forgot that we went to Buffalo wallings. We actually treated ourselves for dinner last night. Yes, well, they actually have like a deal going on, but you have to eat there in the restaurant yeah, so they’re dealing with buy-one-get-one-free wings is you have to eat in the restaurant but of course we’re Rachael and gentleman we always find a way around it.

So we order like an alarming amount of wings at once, and then we just take you know a bunch of at home, but it always scares the waitress a little bit well, we ordered like two larges in two mediums, knowing that we were only going to eat Like eight or nine wings, apiece like how hungry are you and then we brought them home because we usually like to crisp them up more. They never can cook them as crispy as we want them anything we’re weird but yeah.

I like I’m crunchy. We tell them extra, crispy and they’re still not crispy enough yeah yeah, so we brought home wings. So we have wings so we’re going to eat these and then we’ll probably eat those burgers later on for dinner sounds good and since we haven’t eaten, we may also have the keto Joe as well. Yes, so see how we have to figure out our macros for the day, because we are in like day three of our reverse diet, so we got to make sure we hit all our macros right.

So I did want to say before we wrap it up, though, in the vlog, when we were in sprouts, we showed you guys that I forgot the name of it that other meat not to beyond me, but the other one that they had there. We were going to get that and sample it and tell you guys what we thought, but it had way too many carbs. The beyond me only has like three carbs in a serving, but they didn’t have the burgers.

Well, they didn’t have the burgers and it wasn’t on sale. They only had it like the one-pound tub yeah and it was like ten dollars. So we’re going to wait and as soon as we can find the beyond me on sale, we are going to sacrifice our bodies and eat a non meat, burger, hey even dr. Barry said he was going to at least try it there’s no way, I’m ever giving Up meat for beyond me: well we’re going to try it anyway.

I feel like Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation. Where he’s like, were they heavenly kind of a contest between, like you know, not meat and a hamburger, and this guy is like trying to elevate it with all of these different flavors and toppings and things it’s like everybody’s, like yeah, hamburger, wins yeah, so yeah we’re Going to look for that on sale as soon as we get it, we will definitely do that and in the meantime, what we should probably do is go try one of those Burger King ones, yeah like the impossible Burt.

I think it’s called the impossible burger. So we’ll see if our Burger King has that that’ll be another article coming up awesome. Well, I’m ready to eat. We got a set of wings here. The other sets in the air fryer, but we’re going to start here yeah. So that’s going to end today’s article. Let us know down in the comments section what your favorite store to get some of the better quality products is that Whole Foods is it Lucky’s sprouts? Is it sprouts? Is it Trader Joe’s yeah, which one do you have near you or, if you’re fortunate, to have them all?

Can Probiotics Cause SIBO?

Ruscio, Let ’ s discuss the question. Can probiotics cause SIBO? In short, no probiotics cannot cause SIBO, And this is not something that you should Be concerned about, However, what I ’ d like to do is outline What could be a confusing data point in this question and provide you with some tools to Help you navigate through it So can probiotics cause SIBO. The short answer is no.

We have meta-analyses, which are arguably the Highest level of scientific evidence showing that probiotics in fact can treat and act Against and clean out small intestinal bacterial overgrowth in the intestinal tract. However, I have received questions asking Or commenting “, I ’ ve heard probiotics can cause SIBO and that I shouldn ’ t take Them. ” So let ’ s navigate through all these bits.

And bites So I ’ ll, put the abstract up here on the Screen of the study in question that ’ s generating some of the confusion And unfortunately, this study has been referenced. In my opinion very irresponsibly, and has done nothing other than contribute to confusion, And detract from people becoming healthier, It does not mean that people may not have Negative reactions to probiotics – They ’ re rare, But they do happen.

But this study entitled “ Effect of Bifidobacterium Infantis ( or Align Probiotic ) on the Lactulose Breath Test for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth., ”, Let me read you a few of the details or quotes “ A rise in methane of over 20 parts per Million [ ppm ], ” —so to diagnose SIBO, ( or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth ). We Use a breath test And a rise of over 20 would be considered.

A positive for bacterial overgrowth: This was seen in three subjects: pre probiotic, Administrations or before they administered the probiotics, but in six post probiotic. So this affected three of the 19 subjects. Being studied, So you took a group of essentially 19 people And the probiotic appeared to cause SIBO or A positive breath test in 3 people of 19 in one study. Now you can find a study to show almost anything.

This is why I ’ ve said several times you Should not use one study to inform your decision making. You should look at what the body of evidence Shows at large So when we look at numerous clinical trials, With larger numbers of people—now, we ’ re talking about hundreds, maybe even thousands, Of people—we see the overall effect of probiotics on SIBO is an anti-SIBO effect and also an Anti-Digestive symptom effect And that ’ s where we see here, I ’ m, linking to one systematic review and Also one clinical trial showing that probiotics work better in alleviating digestive symptoms.

In those with SIBO compared to those without SIBO, So while one study yes has shown three people, May obtain SIBO after using a probiotic, the overwhelming majority of data show that both Probiotics can act in an anti-SIBO fashion and probiotics can help to alleviate digestive Symptoms Now that doesn ’ t mean that no one can have Or will have a negative reaction to probiotics? There is a small subset of people who negatively React to probiotics.

This is why, in my book, Healthy Gut Healthy You I outline a 3-category system of probiotics, so you can try one probiotic from each category. To see what category of probiotic has benefit for your gut, And rather than just trying the litany of Products out there you can understand category 1, category 2 category 3 And you can try one probiotic from each ProbioticsSo. It. ’ s really important to understand.

That information can be miscited And someone could in this case be concerned. That a probiotic might be bad for their gut or bad for their SIBO because of one study. And this study showing an effect—in this case a negative effect—in three people: It ’ s very important to weight that against The hundreds, if not thousands, of people who have shown benefit from probiotics both for Sibo and for digestive symptoms, as is summarized in systematic reviews and meta-analyses, that We have available So be cautious with what you read on the internet And I would make sure to filter things that You hear through someone whose opinion you trust, because it is important And information used incorrectly, can actually Detract from your health rather than contributing to your health, So probiotics can help with SIBO, And I would have no reservation using a probiotic If you have SIBO, Of course, use your own experience and some Common sense, If you take a probiotic and you notice a negative Reaction that lasts more than a few days, then a probiotic may not be a good fit for You The reason I say “ more than a few days, ” Is a little bit of turbulence for a few days, as things are balancing out and your body Is adjusting to a probiotic is not abnormal, So you don, ’ t want to jump ship after a little Bit of turbulence for a day Give yourself three to five days And if turbulence or any kind of negative Symptom is still persisting after five days up to a week, then that probiotic is likely Not good for you And try one of the other categories, All right.

This is Dr. Ruscio, And hopefully this information helps you Get healthy and get back to your life!

Fungal Probiotics May Decrease Heart Disease Risk

Ratio in a recent study suggests the answer. This question is: yes, I’ll put the study abstract here up on the screen and essentially what this study did was for eight weeks daily supplementation with Sacramento’s polarity of probiotic was shown to lower remnant lipoprotein by 15 %. Remnant lipoprotein is a predictive biomarker and potential target in the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease.

According to this study. So again, this study gave a group of patients sacrifices Velarde, which is a healthy probiotic fungus and over the course of eight weeks they saw a 15 % reduction in this cholesterol. Remnant. Lipoprotein is a precursor to LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol, and so it’s in the family of cholesterol and it’s a predictive marker for heart disease risk. So these findings are very interesting and when we look at other findings, looking at other probiotics and other similar studies, we see numerous studies show that probiotics can have a favorable impact on cholesterol levels.

We’Ve also recently discussed how some probiotics can actually lower homocysteine, and this may happen via the probiotics enhancing bacteria levels, in the gut those bacteria producing B vitamins B vitamins. Naturally, these B vitamins in lower homocysteine, which is another risk factor for heart disease, so overall probiotics show a lot of promise for being able to prevent and hopefully decrease, cardiovascular disease and cardiovascular occurrences.

We don’t really have great data that proves that, yet we don’t really have great data showing that if you, if we take two groups of people, one group take a probiotic for the next five years. The other group do not. The group taking the probiotic has a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease or episodes. To my knowledge, we don’t have that data yet, but we have this preliminary data that is showing that probiotics favorably impact some of the markers in the body that the note future risk for a cardiovascular episode, so very promising, I’m hoping is future research is done.

We’Ll see more of the clinical science substantiating the fact that probiotics can in fact help lower risk right now it can improve some of the markers associated with elevated cardiovascular risk and I think, that’s a very encouraging finding, especially when we consider that probiotics are very benign Substances and we’re fairly deficient in exposure to healthy bacteria in many westernize areas, so certainly it’s very plausible that probiotics make sense to help get back some of this missing bacterial exposure, both environmentally and from a lack of eating things like fermented foods.

Also, the positive impact we see from probiotic supplementation’s on gastrointestinal health and you know further increases the favorability of using a probiotic as a general preventive health measure. So again, this study showed that sacrum Isis Velarde a healthy probiotic fungus decrease remnant, lipoprotein, which is a in the family of cholesterol. In a predictive market for heart, disease decrease that market by 15 %.

So if you’re, someone who has a family history of heart disease or you’re, simply trying to prevent heart disease, then supplementing with probiotic, seems to be a reasonable approach or a reasonable recommendation. This is dr. Russo. I hope this information helps you get healthy to get back to your life thanks.

Do Probiotics Cause SIBO? What the Research Shows

Ruscio, Let’s discuss if probiotics cause SIBO ( small Intestinal bacterial overgrowth ): This is a very important question because If you have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth—a condition, where there’s too much bacteria In the small intestine—that has been correlated or is one of the underlying causes of the Symptoms of IBS Gas, bloating, abdominal pain, constipation, And diarrhea all are some, but not the only symptoms that small intestinal bacterial overgrowth Can contribute to If you’re having those symptoms, you’re likely Considering a probiotic as a treatment for those symptoms, So you’d really like to know, could a probiotic—something You ’ re, trying to use to help you—actually make you worse.

The answer to this question is really no Probiotics do not cause small intestinal bacterial Overgrowth, The vast vast majority of the evidence supports That statement, But every once in a while there’s a reference Or a study that is a little bit confusing and needs to be looked at and contextualized I’ll put one study of such up here on the Screen entitled “ Effect of Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 ( Align ) on the Lactulose Breath.

Test for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. ” Some have cited this study as showing that Probiotics cause SIBO, and this is really incorrect. Thinking Allow me to explain why that is and help You understand this In this study, 19 people were given the Align Probiotic, After a number of weeks on the probiotic They were given a lactulose SIBO breath test. It was found that three of those 19 patients Had a positive methane reading or a positive breath test for SIBO, But here’s the important context: the “.

Why ” Underlying this, The part we need to understand here is none Of these patients saw a significant increase in their symptoms, A lab finding changed, but symptoms did not Change Very important, The other is to understand the physiology Of probiotics, which are the majority, do not colonize you, While these people are taking probiotics They’Re transiently working their way through the system; Either they die off or come out.

The other End There’s this transient effect that the probiotic Has and then it’s gone While people take the probiotic, they have This transient buildup of probiotics in their system Now this can cause a positive on a lactulose Breath test: Does that mean anything’s bad? In truth, no, The vast majority of the evidence shows that Probiotics can help to fight small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Those bacteria crowd out the other bacteria Fight fungal overgrowth reduce leaky gut.

Most importantly, perhaps they reduce a litany. Of abdominal symptoms like gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea And there’s even other evidence that probiotics Can help with things like skin and mood just to name a couple, Even though we see a positive breath test, Finding in a small number of patients, ( three of 19 ), that is most likely underlaid by the Fact that these probiotics are transiently in the system causing this positive breath, Test But ostensibly it is also improving.

Much of What’S going on in that person’s intestine, It’s very important not to look at the study. And misrepresent what the study is showing, which some people are doing? That’S really a travesty to a patient, because Probiotics can be a very effective and very helpful treatment, They’re not going to help everyone, but they’re Certainly a great place to start So a good probiotic protocol can do volumes.

For your gut health, for the symptoms of IBS, for general digestive symptoms and for small Intestinal bacterial overgrowth, I recommend three probiotics, both in my clinic And in the book that give you a quality formula from each one of the three major categories: Of probiotic lactobacillus-bifidobacterium blends, a Saccharomyces, boulardii and soil-based Probiotic By using these three together, you really Provide a good, broad stimulus of probiotic to your gut I’ve seen that to be very effective and there’s A good amount of evidence to support all three of these different probiotic formulations To the question does using a probiotic cause.

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, No, Certainly it’s something to try. A small number of people may have a negative Reaction to a probiotic and that’s okay, If so, just discontinue whatever probiotic You were using that caused that reaction, But for the majority of people they will See a benefit from probiotics; It’s certainly something to consider adding Into your regimen, if you have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, IBS or really any digestive Condition.

.. And perhaps any condition because we’re finding the gut has such a far-reaching Effect on many systems and parts of the body, This is Dr. Ruscio, and hopefully this helps You better understand the issue of probiotics and SIBO and get healthy and you get back. To your life, Thanks
