A study by United States Department of Agriculture on mice models shows microgreens helps us in
A previous study done by researchers from the University of Maryland shows microgreens are rich in nutrients compared with their normal vegetables.
Microgreens : Microgreens are tiny vegetables and can be harvested when they reach one inch to three inches tall (length including stem and leaves) in two to four weeks after germination. They can be harvested by cutting the stem above the soil line. They are available in multiple colors and textures with flavor. They are sweet and spicy too. Plant such as chia, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, sunflower and buckwheat can be grown as microgreens.
Microgreens increase the taste, freshness and beauty of the dishes. They are an excellent choice to decorate soups, salads and sandwiches. They are healthiest when consumed quickly before they loose color. Health benefits of microgreens are
A meta-analysis study to find out the relation between consumption of meat and the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D) during the year 2013 indicates a higher risk of T2D associated with meat consumption. The association is higher in processed meat and poultry. Some of the ingredients in meat are
A study by researchers from the University of Eastern Finland linked the development of type 2 diabetes to elevated levels of iron levels in the bloodstream. Researchers say men accumulate more iron compared to women. Researchers found "U" shaped association between iron levels and risk of the development of type 2 diabetes. The risk is lowest when iron levels are at moderate levels.
The human body requires iron but excess stored levels of iron are harmful to the body as they promote free radicals. Free radicals damage beta cells that discharge insulin in the pancreas. According to Alex O Aregbesola, safe range for iron levels in the body is 30 to 200 micrograms (mcg) per liter of serum ferritin (1 microgram = 1x10-6 of a gram).
The study findings were published in the journals Annals of Clinical Biochemistry.
Ferritin : Ferritin is a protein that contains iron and found in blood cells. Ferritin test results show stored iron levels in the body. Lower ferritin iron levels indicate iron deficiency. Our food contains two types of iron
