    Damage caused by refined products

    Our country is known as the brain power of the world in the IT field. This implies that we keep our brain and brawn healthy. Our youth are very easily falling victims of mental depression and related diseases. We have found the refined product is the culprit to all these. Media also play a major role in diverting our attention towards these refined products for their commercial gains

    Lord Krishna preached in bhagavat gita, you become what you eat, and there is a saying that when you take refined products you become coarse in nature and when you take coarse products you become refined in qualities

    Nowadays as we know the basic of all our diseases is the junk food available in the market and easily accessible and easier for life. Woman is the maker and breaker in a family as all food comes from their kitchen, so awareness from this is very important in bringing out healthy foods, now what are they?

    Indians have never been into bakery products in their regular meals, it has been well known for protein and starch which come in the form of idli, dosa,bajra,makai roti, upma, puri, with different types of dhall etc. if we can make these with non refined we stand to gain in the long run, with nutrition well provided in the meals that we plan for them. There is a detailed list of nutrients in unrefined starch is mentioned..

    Pyotin 14.00 (micro grams)
    Folic Acid 260.00 (micro grams)
    E-Vitamin 1.60


    Now you can imagine, the amount of loss of invaluable nutrients in processing the refined products being consumed by us for the past several decades. We are consuming mainly polished rice, maida, de-husked pulses and grams,

    This is a well known fact that vitamin B family is useful in the over all growth of our body..
    What is B1 THIAMINE AND HOW DOES IT HELP

    • to digest starch
    • to convert glucose into required amount of fat in the body
    • to strengthen the nerves.
    • to keep the brain cells active and alert.
    • to have overall buoyancy and freshness in the body
    • to generate healthy red blood cells.


    What is B2 RIBOFLAVIN AND HOW DOES IT HELP

    1. to keep the thyroid glands active and healthy
    2. to carry oxygen to each and every cell in the body
    3. to convert nutrients and energy
    4. to have overall body growth
    5. to prevent the onset of CANCER

    What is B3 NIACINE AND HOW DOES IT HELP US


    • To convert nutrients into energy
    • to keep the brain cells active and alert
    • to arrest schizophrenia[
    • to arrest harmful cholesterol


    What is B5 PANTOTHENIC ACID


    • to improve the cellular efficiency
    • to improve digestion
    • to withstand bodily and mental depression
    • to improve working of adrenal gland
    • to keep active the bodily immune system


    What is B6 PYRIDOXINE

    • to generate more red blood cells
    • to generate more tissues
    • to improve muscular efficiency
    • to help the absorption of protein and fat in the body
    • to improve the functional efficiency of nervous system including

    the brain

    • to improve hair growth..


    The damage and to the loss of these vitamins and minerals is only due to
    Cooking over high flame.
    Processed food.

    Where is the goodness of all these mentioned above in a vegetarian diet:


    • full pulses with skin
    • sprouted grains and pulses
    • bran available in wheat flour and rice coat
    • raw peanuts
    • soya
    • bananas


    we loose many nutrition by getting all the refined products, unpolished rice is the only item u may have to search for, though it is available in the big cities, for eg: in Bangalore, namdharis, Thomas café, and iskon temple..

    The visual media has ingrained in us that the refined oil is the best for us, but it is disease promoting. While refining many important nutrients like EFA essential fatty acids,
    which are very essential for the functioning of the heart. Many harmful chemicals including PETRO-PRODUCTS are used while refining. Some of them are carcinogenic.

    So kindly go in for non- refined food products to save the morrow of the children and adults…SUNKAN

    Good One. It is also common knowledge that a lot of preservatives are used to extend the shelf life of processed foods. These preservatives are indicated by E numbers which are mentioned in the ingredients on the product package. Here is a link for E numbers that one should avoid. This is a freaking long list so the best thing to do is avoid processed foods or keep it to a minimum.
