Nutrition Advice and Tips Νο. 2


Apricots
Apricot is considered a very good source of antioxidants. In addition to vitamins A and C, it provides the human body with plenty of antioxidants that have been associated with good heart health.

Prefer mature and dried apricots as the amount of their nutrients is increased.


Nutritional Supplements and Weight Loss: Is it possible?

Scientific data so far does not seem to support the claim that the use of nutritional supplements can substantially contribute to the loss or maintenance of body weight.

In addition, several of these active substances are accompanied by side effects and may show drug interactions

.

Breakfast
A balanced breakfast usually covers about 20-25% of the body's nutritional and energy needs and combines foods from the following food groups:
 Stuff and preferably whole grain, such as whole grain breakfast cereals.
  Protein such as a low-fat dairy, for example milk or yogurt, for proteins of high biological value.
 A fresh fruit or vegetable.


Absorption of nutrients

Iron absorption is affected by various other food ingredients, especially when it comes to iron found in plant foods (non-hemic iron).

For this reason, it is advisable to consume foods containing iron such as legumes and dark green vegetables with foods containing vitamin C, vitamin A or other acids in order to better absorb iron.
