Fiber, also known as roughage, contains many properties that aid our digestion tract, and allow us to process waste products more efficiently. According to Nutrition.gov (2013) fiber can be found in many of our favorite foods including whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. There are two types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibers dissolve in water, and when digested, “form viscous solutions in the intestines” (Grosvenor & Smolin, 2006). “Fibers that cannot be digested by bacteria in the large intestines are called insoluble fibers because they do not dissolve in water.” (Grosvenor & Smolin, 2006) High fiber diets can produce many benefits, including higher nutrient absorption levels, and better waste output.
“Diabetes can be tackled in different ways- by insulin and diet” (Rudy, 1999, page 19) Diet, when someone had diabetes it is best for their health to cut right down on the unhealthy foods, and stick to the health foods, this is due to the effectiveness of the medication you are on. If you eat junk food and do not eat healthy then your medication will not be as effective as it could be. Sticking to regular mealtimes is also another thing that could help you feel better as it will keep your “blood glucose levels under control”. (Rudy, 1999, page 20) There are 2 types of carbohydrates, 1 that is good for controlling diabetes and 1 that is really bad, these are starchy and sugary. Sugary- this is the 1 that people with diabetes should stay clear of, this is due to the “glucose getting into your bloodstream fast, this could cause a sudden rise in blood glucose levels”.
Fiber Research SCI/241 March 24, 2011 Fiber Research Fiber is an important part in gastrointestinal health; it is important role in cleaning out the intestines and avoids constipation. Fiber also provides cholesterol lowering effects, fat modifications and has been associated with lowering blood pressure. Fiber can also promote satiety by slowing gastric emptying allowing calorie intake to be lowered, therefore decreasing chances of obesity. There are two types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Insoluble fibers are those that absorb water, resulting in bulkier, softer stool.
Research shows diets high in fibre are associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers. Good sources of fibre include vegetables with skins on, whole grain bread and whole wheat pasta. In a healthy balanced diet carbohydrates are the body’s main source of energy. High fibre, starchy carbohydrates release sugar into the blood more slowly than sugary foods and drinks. 1g of carbohydrates provides 3.75 kcal.
Foods made from milk that retain their calcium content are part of the group 2) Identify sources of essential nutrients • Carbohydrates - fruits, breads and grains, starchy vegetables and sugars • Protein – meat, fish, cheese, tofu, beans, lentils, yogurt, nuts, and seeds • Fat – omega-3-rich foods like fish, walnuts and vegetable-based oils • Vitamins –citrus fruits, strawberries and peppers • Minerals –bananas, potatoes and tomatoes. • Water – water , vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, eggs, soups 3) Explain the role of essential nutrients for health • Carbohydrate - supplies energy ,assists in the utilization of fats • Protein - helps build and repair body tissue, helps build antibodies • Fat - supplies energy, aids in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins • Vitamins - Vitamins help to regulate chemical reactions in the body • Minerals - contains calcium and magnesium are important for bone structure, and
Lactase is effective at pH 2 – 7 (including dH2O) and therefore breaks down the lactose sugar in milk into glucose and galactose. As a result, the test strips will turn a shade of brown. . Lactase is not effective at pH 10 – 12. At the high pHs, the enzyme lactase is denatured and is no longer able to break down the sugar lactose in milk.
Wheat germ is rich in glutathione a sulfur based antioxidant and when combine with selenium, an oxidation enzyme is formed which can help to dissolve chemical carcinogens in our body, and protecting our brand cell. Also wheat germ has lot of zinc with dietary fiber that helps in lowering LHL cholesterol level and prevent diabetes, more over wheat germ promotes the growth of good intestine bacteria. Serves 1 Plan Yogurt 1 cup, to be mix and blend with juice Wheat Germ 1 tablespoon, added into the blended juice later Lemon ½ piece, cut into slices and seeded Raw Manuka Honey 1 teaspoon, dissolve in water before added into the juice Fresh Juice Everyday http://www.healthyeatingjuicing.com Page 33 Fresh Juice Everyday

COX-1 and COX-2 enzyme are two different forms of cyclo-oxygenase. The difference is that COX-1 enzyme did not produce inflammatory prostaglandins but protecting the lining in the gastrointestinal tract and has blood clotting and renal function while COX-2 enzyme produces prostaglandins causing the symptoms and signs associated with inflammation. The classic one of NSAIDs, for example, ibuprofen blocks the action of both COX-1 and COX-2 enzyme, and that is why the side effects, for example, stomach irritation, are easily occur. In contrast, Celecoxib, a new generation of NSAIDS, only stop the action of COX-2 enzyme, the enzyme in which it produces inflammatory prostaglandis by COX-2 inhibitor. Celecoxib, therefore, could keep the function of reliving pain and inflammation, and the advantage is to cause smaller side effects on the stomach and intestines compared to traditional
Bacteria will not multiply in dry areas, but as soon as liquid is added, for instance to dried food like powdered milk and dried eggs, the products will provide ideal conditions for bacteria to multiply. However, if enough salt or sugar have been added to foods such as bacon, savoury biscuits, jam and confectionery, this will absorb the available moisture in the food so the bacteria cannot multiply as easily. It is not only moist foods that provide the right environment for bacteria, though. Moist skin or damp areas of an environment will also provide the right atmosphere for bacterial growth. Nutrients Bacteria, like all living things, need nutrients to survive.
