Oxalatos


Continuing with toxic foods for our brain we have Oxalates, it is much more common for people to know about histamine than about oxalates, the symptoms of the alteration are very similar to histamine, because it will generate inflammation on the one hand. to make you have more risk of having an autoimmune disease and inflammation caused by high shocks, also some conditions such as some nutritional mineral deficiencies.

My practical advice to everyone about oxalates is that if your symptoms of digestive inflammation did not improve with all the previous steps of histamine reduction, consider reducing foods rich in oxalates that basically include different types of beers, chocolate beets, coffee, spinach, and most dark leafy vegetables.

Avoid high-glycemic foods


We have foods that fluctuate blood glucose levels, these foods that I mentioned before that raise and lower your glucose quickly, it is logical, you always have to avoid foods with a high glycemic index and it is very important that you differentiate what is called the glycemic load, of what is called the glycemic index, the glycemic load is the amount of sugars that a certain food has, while the glycemic index, how quickly they are released in my body, I can use them; The variation of this glycemic index, in the marked glycemic variation, will lead to more inflammation, more aging and a lot of mechanisms that I want to avoid as much as possible.

The sugar peaks are that you do when you eat a food that you should not consume alter your neurological functioning, avoid them, because you will have excitement for a very brief moment and then you will have a wild lethargy in which you will not feel like do nothing and you will feel tired, for this always remember that our brain adapted to a diet that was not rich in sugar because you followed a general paleolithic diet throughout the Paleolithic, the carbohydrates that we extract in our diet in the Paleolithic were extracted in general of products that have a much lower glycemic index than the one that a potato or a sweet potato has today, this does not mean that glucose is a monster and that you do not have to consume it, you never have to make a war, it does not mean that yes or you do have to go on a ketogenic diet.

Everyone's brain needs sugar to function properly and you can actually extract that sugar from fats or even amino acids, but it doesn't mean that you don't have to consume any carbohydrates, it simply means that you have to consume forms of carbohydrates. That sugars are released in a stable and slow way so that it graphs is this basically your brain occupies 2% of your body weight while it consumes 20% of total glucose, we are talking about approximately between 80 and 100 grams of minimum glucose per day that your brain is going to need to function properly and always remember that you can extract these sugars from sources other than carbohydrates.

Aléjate de las grasas procesadas.


Trans fats There are small amounts of trans fats that occur naturally in some types of meat and dairy products, but most trans fats are industrially manufactured and are found in some types of oil that I obviously do not recommend, which you have to To understand is that after several processes such as hydrogenation, these fats from these trans fats smell highly oxidizable and high levels of these substances in the blood have been associated many times with poor cognitive capacity and low brain volume in the development of children. In addition to increasing the risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even fertility and obesity disorders.


For what do you understand the level of damage that trans fat can do in your brain, in a study more than a thousand adults showed, how the consumption of trans fats made people remember fewer words than those who had not consumed trans fats, Furthermore, trans fats increase the oxidative stress of cells and this is one of the great mechanisms of cellular aging, if you were alarmed, don't worry, there are many more that you should avoid and I will touch on them in the next post.
