Five Ways to Increase Your Energy

Posted by bubucuo on July 16, 2014 at 11:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Do you want to stop feeling tired all the time and discover the keys to boosting your energy level?We effectively 'burn' carbohydrate, releasing the sun's energy within enzyme manufacturers, with oxygen, which comes from the breath. With more oxygen, people feel more energised and the simplest way to increase your intake of oxygen is through certain breathing techniques.At a subtler level the breath has a central role to play in both the traditions of the East, that focus on generating vital energy known as chi or ki, and the Indian tradition of yoga for generating prana. There are specific vital energy generating exercises that do this.However, before the carbohydrate you eat gets to meet oxygen for the final energy-making reaction, the 'fuel' has to be prepared and broken down, step by step. This is done by a sequence of enzymes that depend on a whole family of nutrients, especially B vitamins and vitamin C, as well as the minerals iron, zinc and magnesium. Chromium also plays a vital role in stabilising glucose (digested carbohydrate) supply to cells.
At the same time the energy within glucose is released within the energy factories (called mitochondria) inside every cell, so too are millions of harmful oxidant by-products. The ability to continually disarm these with antioxidants, and particularly an antioxidant called catalase suppliers, makes a big difference to how you feel. These are the energy nutrients. If all these keep your engine running, so to speak, adrenal hormones are the accelerator, working closely with thyroid hormones, to control your energy level. These are the energy hormones, and they too are made from specific nutrients, primarily amino acids derived from protein.Understanding how to keep these in balance is an important part of the energy equation. All this is one side of the equation. The other is how you expend energy and how to conserve it. Together, these make up the five critical factors for increasing your energy. So let's take a close look at what this means for you.
All carbohydrate is broken down into glucose and the earliest thinking in nutrition is that you'd get the most energy by eating glucose-rich foods, hence 'A Mars a day helps you work, rest and play'. In our Optimum Nutrition UK survey of 37,000 people, we found the reverse to be true – those people who ate the most sugar and refined carbohydrates had the lowest energy levels. Meanwhile, those following a low-GL diet designed to maintain a constant, steady supply of glucose into the bloodstream, report big increases in energy. The three golden rules, are to eat 40 to 60 GLs a day, combine protein with carbohydrate, and Heat stable Alpha-Amylase rather than gorge, eating little and often. My book The Low GL Diet Bible explains exactly how to do this. Also try Get Up & Go a high-energy breakfast shake which is perfectly balanced for a low-GL start to your day.The first important energy nutrient is chromium. It makes insulin work properly and is associated with increasing energy, improving mood and reducing sugar cravings. Some studies also report weight loss in overweight people. While an adequate daily intake is 50mcg, only levels of 500mcg or more work for stabilising blood sugar in diabetics. If you are not diabetic, but do have sugar cravings, I'd recommend 200mcg of chromium a day, although there's no harm in trying double this and seeing if it makes a bigger difference.

Existing Home Sales Heat Up in June

Posted by Matthew T. Smoot on July 14, 2014 at 3:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Existing Home Sales Heat Up in June

Homebuyers battling tight inventory, tough lending standards, and competing offers from all-cash buyers got a bit of a break in June as more sellers put their homes on the market.

June's 4.9% month-over-month gain in the number of single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops for sale was the highest monthly rise since August 2011 (5.5%).

Despite that growth in the number of homes for sale, the median U.S. existing-home price continued to rise, reaching $213,400 in June. That’s up 5.1% from a year ago, data from the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® show.

NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said current sales activity is rebounding after the lackluster first quarter. “Homebuyers are benefiting from slower price growth due to the much-needed, rising inventory levels seen since the beginning of the year,” he said. “Moreover, sales were helped by the improving job market and the temporary but slight decline in mortgage rates.”

Having more existing homes for sale might slow the pace at which home prices are rising, depending on how many new homes are built, said Yun. “The amount of homes for sale is still modestly below a balanced market. Therefore, new home construction is still needed to keep prices and housing supply healthy in the long run,” he added.

Earlier this month, NAR reported new-home construction activity is currently insufficient in most of the U.S. Some states could face persistent housing shortages and affordability issues unless housing starts increase to match up with local job creation.

At the current sales pace, it would take 5.6 months to sell the 2.28 million existing homes currently for sale. That’s down a bit from the 5.7-month supply of homes on the market last month. By comparison, there were 2.15 million existing homes for sale at this time last year.

Fewer Distressed Sales

The proportion of home sales involving distressed sellers (foreclosures or short sales) dropped quite a bit in June. Only 8% of June sales were foreclosures and 3% were short sales, where a home was sold for less than what was owed on the mortgage. Combined, the 11% of sales that were distressed last month is much lower than the 18% of sales that were distressed in May.

Distressed sales influence home sales prices. Foreclosures sold for an average discount of 18% below market value in June, while short sales were discounted 11%.

First-Time Buyers to Benefit from Larger Inventory

Housing fundamentals are showing slight improvement in markets across the country, said NAR President Steve Brown.

“Many potential buyers were left on the sidelines beginning last summer as affordability declined amidst rising home prices and interest rates,” he said. “The temporary pause in rising interest rates and more homes for sale is good news — especially for first-time homebuyers — who likely have a better chance in upcoming months to make a competitive offer that’s in return accepted by the seller.”

How Long are Homes Taking to Sell?

Home Type

Median Number of Days on the Market

All homes 47 days
Short sales 125 days
Foreclosures 57 days
Non-distressed 44 days


Forty-one percent of homes sold in June 2014 were on the market for less than a month.

Regional Existing-Home Sales

  May 2014 Sales Volume Median Price Median Price Compared to May 2013
Northeast Up 3.3% $256,700 Down 0.9%
Midwest Up 8.7% $165,900 Up 4.0%
South Up 5.7% $184,800 Up 4.4%
West Up 0.9% $297,500 Up 8.4%


Existing condo and co-op sales remained unchanged in June from May (as well as from June 2013) at an annual rate of 590,000 units. The median existing-condo price was $212,300 in June, which is 6.6% higher than a year ago.

Nancy Krcek Allen: Long live the berries

Posted by bubucuo on July 3, 2014 at 2:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Northern Michiganders visibly soften when thinking of their first-picked strawberry; juicy, sun-warm and complexly sweet. Sure we love our first wild leeks and morels, but a binge in the berry patch promises an altered state of consciousness.That's why it is so frustrating to see berries deteriorate as soon as they enter the kitchen. It's a race to use them before the tender fruits soften and bio enzyme office. Food scientist Harold McGee has a solution.Immerse them in hot water. That's right, hot water.Though it may sound counter-intuitive (and a "recipe" for jam), a dip in hot tap water suppresses mold growth on berries, many vegetables, grapes and stone fruit without harming the produce. This process, also known as heat shocking, lowers enzyme production that causes browning, wilting and softening, and helps to lengthen the shelf life of produce.The water temperature and immersion time are key: the hotter the water the less time necessary. Lettuce needs one to two minutes at 122°F depending on its hardiness. Thirty seconds to one minute in 140°F water works well for most hard-skinned produce like citrus, asparagus, green beans, broccoli and cauliflower, melons, apples and stone fruits.
Arm yourself with a thermometer and a large pot. Fill the pot two-thirds full with hot tap water. Check the temperature. Bring it to 125°F by adding cold water or by heating slightly. Submerge strawberries, raspberries or food enzymes for 30 seconds. Blueberries can take 140°F water for 30 seconds. Scoop out, drain and spread berries on paper toweling dry.(Optional: a brief immersion in cold water before draining and drying will chill berries quickly.) Refrigerate berries when dry. Prepare to enjoy your shocked berries for at least 5 days without loss or decay.
Yep, there are a lot of cooking shows on TV these days, but how many of them can boast a host from right here in Washington? Tonight marks the debut of the Travel Channel's "American Grilled," whose head judge over 13 episodes is David Guas, owner of Bayou Bakery in Arlington. Bonnie S. Benwick was on hand in Chicago for a filming at Wrigley Field; she fills you in here.Also in Food this week, Holley Simmons introduces you to the ketchup-obsessed local couple who launched 'Chups, a line of fruit condiments that they hope will someday be popular enough to compete with Heinz. And Tim Carman was on hand when superstar New York chef Daniel Boulud came to Washington to throw a dinner party for brewing enzyme supply — who will become his competition when his DBGB Kitchen and Bar opens at CityCenter in September.
Special guest alert: David Guas joins our Free Range chat today. He'll be happy to talk about his new show, for sure, and he'll also be able to handle any culinary question you want to toss at him. The starting gate flies open at noon, so make sure to be on hand. And as always, you can submit questions in advance.I'm determined to master the art of the pickle this summer. I've had great luck with quick pickles (slices), dill and sweet, where the hot brine gets poured over the slices in the jar. I have had absolutely no luck with spears using that method (they just wind up getting flimsy — no crispness at all) and even less luck (lots of innocent cucumbers lost) with the crock method. With the crock, using whole cukes, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Once they're done, the ones I've been brave enough to try aren't so much dill or even sour as just yucky.

Future soldiers to be immune to bio-weapons

Posted by bubucuo on July 2, 2014 at 3:35 AM Comments comments (0)

The next generation American soldiers may be immune to biological weapons.Scientists have for the first time genetically modified red blood cells (RBC) to carry a range of valuable payloads — from buy amylase enzymes, to vaccines, to imaging agents — for delivery to specific sites throughout the body. RBCs normally carry oxygen from the lungs to the living tissues and are the most numerous of all the cells, accounting for about a quarter of the 100 trillion cells of the human body. The approach has captured the attention of the US military and it's Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa), which is supporting the research in the interest of developing treatments or vaccines effective against biological weapons. "We wanted to create high-value red cells that do more than simply carry oxygen," says Whitehead founding member Harvey Lodish who collaborated with Whitehead member Hidde Ploegh in this pursuit. "Here we've laid out the technology to make mouse and human RBCs in culture that can express what we want and potentially be used for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes." The scientists believe the applications are potentially vast and may include RBCs modified to bind and remove bad cholesterol from the Buying amylase enzyme , carry clot-busting proteins to treat ischemic strokes or deep-vein thrombosis, or deliver anti-inflammatory antibodies to alleviate chronic inflammation.RBCs are an attractive vehicle for potential therapeutic applications for a variety of reasons, including their abundance — they are more numerous than any other cell type in the body — and their long lifespan (up to 120 days in circulation). Perhaps most importantly, during RBC production, the progenitor cells that eventually mature to become RBCs jettison their nuclei and all DNA therein. Without a nucleus, a mature RBC lacks any genetic material or any signs of earlier genetic manipulation that could result in tumour formation or other adverse effects. A study has shown that the technique works well when carried out on laboratory mice, and that modified human red blood cells stay circulating in the body for up to four months, giving transfusion patients long-term protection, scientists said. Exploiting this characteristic, Lodish and his lab introduced genes coding for specific slightly modified normal red cell surface proteins into early-stage RBC progenitors. As the RBCs approach maturity and fungal alpha amylase enzyme, the proteins remain on the cell surface, where they are modified by Ploegh's protein-labeling technique.Referred to as "sortagging" the approach relies on the bacterial enzyme sortase A to establish a strong chemical bond between the surface protein and a substance of choice, be it a small-molecule therapeutic or an antibody capable of binding a toxin. The modifications leave the cells and their surfaces unharmed."Because the modified human red blood cells can circulate in the body for up to four months, one could envision a scenario in which the cells are used to introduce antibodies that neutralize a toxin," says Ploegh. "The result would be long-lasting reserves of antitoxin antibodies".
