Long used in sacred ceremonies and associated with good health, the nutritional and health promoting benefits of olives and olive oils have been proven by an ever-increasing body of science. From cardiovascular benefits to anti-microbial, anti-cancer, antioxidant activity and effects on macrophages and aptoptosis to cellular and pathophysiollogical process, olives and olive oils are proving important in many healthful ways. For example, reactive components in olive oils or olive oil by-products have now been isolated and identified. These include tyrosol, hydroxytyrosol, 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl acetic acid elenolic acid and oleuropein. Oleic acid is the main monosaturated fatty acid of olive oil. These have putative protective effects and modulate the biochemistry of a variety of cell types including those of the vascular system. Some but not all components have been characterised by their putative pharmacological properties. It is possible that usage of these aforementioned products may have beneficial application in other disease. However, in order for this cross-fertilization to take place, a comprehensive understanding of olives and olive oils is required. Finding this knowledge in a single volume provides a key resource for scientists in a variety of food an nutritional roles. Key Features: * Explores olives and olive oil from their general aspects to the detailed level of important micro-and micronutrients * Includes coverage of various methodologies for analysis to help scientists and chemists determine the most appropriate option for their own studies, including those of olive-related compounds in other foods * Relates, in a single volume resource, information for food and nutritional chemists, pharmaceutical scientists, nutritionists and dieticians * Presents information in three key categories: General aspects of olives an olive oils; Nutritional, pharmacological and metabolic properties of olives and olive oil; Specific components of olive oil and their effects on tissue and body systems
Fats in foods and fat on the body have become national obsessions. With due cause. Research is showing the far-reaching deleterious effects of obesity as well as relationships between lipid (fat and oil) consumption and a wide range of health concerns. In this seminal book, Dr. Wysong brings a surprise and reveals that fats are not the nutritional demons popularly assumed. The key to health is not to avoid dietary fat and jump on the cholesterol checking and drug band wagon. Lipids are a part of every cell and are essential components of hormones and body regulators. Even cholesterol (in its natural state) is critical to health. If it is not eaten, the body produces it. Dr. Wysong provides the understanding necessary to avoid such popular and professional myths.Natural fats are not something to avoid, but rather to seek and cherish. The real villain is food processing. Heat, light, air, hydrogenation, and time are the enemies of healthful fats. Not only does processing destroy important fats and oils, but it can convert them to dangerous disease-producing toxins. Dr. Wysong explains how to choose foods that are protected from these dangers.Read carefully, Lipid Nutrition can be one of those rare books which replaces the reading of dozens of others. Whether you are a person just concerned with better health and nutrition, or a professional seeking keys to prevention and treatment, Lipid Nutrition will prove to be a wonderful aid to understanding and a valuable resource for making healthy decisions.
So many labels, so little time—just tell me what to buy! If you—like millions of other Americans—still don't know how to read food labels and are frustrated by the hundreds of nutrition and health claims as well as statements like free-range and grassfed, it's time to learn what you're really putting into your body...find out how to select the most healthy foods at the supermarket and still get dinner on the table by 6:00 pm with EATING BETWEEN THE LINES Shopping is no longer as simple as deciding what's for dinner. Food labels like "organic," "natural," "low carb," and "fat free!" scream out at you from every aisle at the supermarket.
