Good Fats & Bad Fats

Good [fish, nuts, seeds, coconut]
- Promotes overall cardiovascular health
- Helps maintain normal blood flow
- Helps maintain normal blood pressure
levels

Bad [hydrogenated or trans fats]
 Constricts arteries
 Makes blood sticky
 Diminishes arterial health
3 Types of Dietary Fats

Saturated fats (animal products)

Monounsaturated fats are typically the best
oils for cooking (olive oil has a higher
oxidation threshold – resists hydrogen-ation
or saturation)

Polyunsaturated fats (nuts, seeds,
sunflower, safflower and corn oils)
**includes essential omega-3 fatty acids**
Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Two main types:
- Long Chain FA including EPA & DHA
(Eicosapentanoic Acid & Docosahexanoic Acid)
Plentiful in cold water fish and shellfish
- Short Chain FA including ALA
(Alpha-Linolenic Acid)
Found in plants such as flaxseed
Fatty Acids

DHA
Fatty Acids
 Saturated
 Unsaturated
○ Monounsaturated
 Olive Oil
○ Polyunsaturated
 Omega-3s and Omega 6s (EFA’s)
 Trans-fatty acids
○ Hydrogenation
EPA
Importance of omega-3s

Americans are NOT consuming as much fish as
in the past and we eat corn fed beef

Ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 should be 2:1
(per Am J Clin Nutr, 1999). Average
American ratio is 20:1 (per Am J Clin Nutr,
2000)

Need to ↓Omega 6’s (corn, sunflower oil)

Good to ↑Omega 3’s (fish, shrimp)
AHA Scientific Statement: Fish Consumption, Fish
Oil, Omega-3 FA’s & CVD
Kris-Etherton et al, Circulation (2002)106:2747-2757
 Strongly encourages increased Ω-3 consumption
 Singles out EPA & DHA from fish as best for heart health
 Sets out recommended daily intakes of ~1 g of EPA + DHA
for people at risk of CVD and 2-4 g for lowering
triglycerides
 Recognizes fish oil supplements as a safe, effective alternative to eating fish for people who don’t like it or who
can’t consume enough to reach effective intakes of EPA +
DHA
 Stresses the importance of safe, high-quality supplements
Sources of EPA + DHA
[Target amounts: 1 or 3 g per day]
Salmon 1.1g per 3 oz serving
$6.99/lb at a local grocery store (8 oz = 3 g DHA +
EPA)
 Canned tuna provides 0.36 g per 3 oz serving
$1.00 per 6 oz can this week (25 oz = 3 g DHA + EPA
= 4+ cans

消化酶 (Digestive Enzymes)
什么是酶 (Enzymes)?
 酶是催化体内生化反应的蛋白质, 是我们身体里的动力。
 酶具有高度的特异性, 只在一定的pH值和温度范围内
有活性。
酶的种类
- 新陳代謝酶: 在细胞内工作
- 消化酶: 在消化系统的细胞外工作, 把食物中的大分子
分解成小分子。
Digestive Enzymes
消化酶的來源:
- 生鮮食物:
食物经过冷冻、高温、福射、微波等处理,其中的酶的
活性和结构就完全被破坏掉。我们吃进去的绝大多数食
物是不含酶的。
- 体內产生 : 唾液腺、胃、小肠、胰脏。
Digestive enzymes are classified
based on their target substrates:
proteases and peptidases split
proteins into small peptides and amino
acids.
lipases split fat into three fatty acids
and a glycerol molecule.
amylases split carbohydrates such as
starch and sugars into simple sugars
such as glucose.

Curcumin Extreme™
Curcumin comes from
Turmeric
Curcumin’s Healthful Benefits
Promotes normal activity of NF-kappaB
 Promotes normal cell cycle activity, normal
cellular regeneration
 Helps to maintain neurological health as we
age

Studies Show Curcumin
Promotes Normal Activity of NFKB Activation

S. Shishodia et al. Curcumin down-regulates cigarette smokeinduced NF-kB activation through inhibition of IkBα kinase in
human lung epithelial cells: correlation with suppression of COX2, MMP-9 and cyclin D1. Carginogenisis (2003) 24(7): 1269-1279


nuclear factor-kB pathway in breast cancer cells and inhibits lung
metastasis of human breast cancer in nude mice. Clin Cancer Res
2005;11(20) 7490-7498
Nuclear factor-kappa B

A protein complex involved in supporting
normal cellular responses to stress (such
as free radical attack).

NF-κB plays a key role in regulating the
immune and inflammatory responses.

Inadequate regulation of NF-κB has been
linked to problems in joint health,
digestive health and respiratory health.
Importance of Apoptosis
Curcumin has been found to
promote normal cell cycle activity
and promote apoptosis in
unhealthy cells.

Promotes the normal production of

 Helps maintain healthy glutathione levels
 Promotes apoptosis in unhealthy cells
 Promotes a strong immune system by:

 Supporting normal total white blood cell count
 Supporting normal phagocytic activity
-Thejass, P. and Kuttan, G. Immunomodulatory activity of sulforaphane, a naturally occuring
isothiocyanate from broccoli (Brassica oleracea). Phytomedicine. 14: 538-545, 2006.
Glucosinolates

Found in cruciferous vegetables.

An enzyme converts it to
isothiocyanates and indoles.

Indole-3 carbinol promotes normal
phase I and II detoxification reactions.
What is “detoxification?”

Carried out by enzymes produced from the
information stored within our genes.


Phase I: Enzymes are called “activators.”
Phase II: Enzymes called “excretors.”
Indole-3 carbinol promotes the normal
activity of these enzymes.

Glutathione S-Transferase Activity. Clin Cancer Res 1997; Vol 3, 25-30
