NAC works by helping to decrease inflammation and it has been used for a number of chronic conditions. One of the most common conditions where NAC is used is in the treatment of arthritis. The condition can be very painful and if the joint does not heal, then this condition can lead to a lot of discomfort.
Other health benefits of niacin include promoting heart health and keeping cholesterol levels under control. Niacin improves circulation, reduces high blood pressure, and lowers blood sugar levels. Niacin is a powerful antioxidant, which removes toxic free radicals from the body and prevents aging. Niacin also lowers blood pressure, which means it can help lower blood sugar, which is helpful for anti-aging. The elderly often have poorer overall health due to the effects of stress and free radicals in their system.
Now that we all know just how beneficial coconut oil can be, the only question is, just how should we be using it? What products are available? Natural, organic, virgin coconut oil provides all the benefits mentioned above because it contains all of the ingredients needed to provide them. Its major disadvantage may be that it is a solid substance at room temperature. Another choice to consider is fractionated coconut oil, which is a distilled version of the original. Fractionization allows the long-chain fatty acids contained in virgin coconut oil to solidify and be removed, leaving an ultra-light, odorless oil that will remain liquid at cooler temperatures. (this is called oil-pulling) This means that it will be more easily absorbed by the skin if you are considering using it topically.
Destruction from free radical is accumulative and extends fast over time. Be kind to your body by providing it with a diet which has a lot of antioxidant nutrition. Form a routine of consuming vegetables and fruits, take vitamins and attempt to reduce or stop destructive poor habits. In 20 years you will be grateful to yourself.
In this post I am discussing how I will tie the various articles on this site together. When I say together I mean how I used or considered the various supplements, exercise regimens, alternative medicine techniques etc. in my lifestyle regimen. To discuss this I will have to use a timeline of my life beginning in the late 1980’s when I was in my 30’s.
