Advice on Anti-Nutrients

by | Apr 5, 2020 | Nutrition, Training

Did you know there’s foods that are full of anti-nutrients?They work to deplete nutrients from your body. Or may contain no nutrients at all!

These are nutrients the body could’ve used to support your immune system. As a result limit repair within the body.

Advice on anti nutrients

Whilst we’re always striving to eat well and fill our bodies with nourishing foods it’s important to remember that some of the things we eat or drink could actually counteract all that good work and actually deplete the body of essential nutrients and weaken our immune system.

What are Anti-Nutrient foods

🍰Refined sugars & artificial sweeteners
Sweets, cakes, fizzy drinks, energy drinks, chocolate, cakes, biscuits.
These suppress and weaken the immune system and actually push Vitamin C out of the body.

🧀Dairy products
Dairy produce is very mucus forming.
Too much mucus can make breathing more of a challenge for some.
Very important to remember whilst Coronavirus Covid-19 is a respiratory disease.

This is absorbed quickly and prioritises the coffee over the nutrients from the food you’ve eaten.

🍔Junk food
Convenience food and processed meat contain no nutrients.
Microwaving foods can deplete and damage any nutrients available in that meal.

🔥Cigarettes & Alcohol
Bombard the body with toxins that overwhelm the body’s systems.
As a result they impair the immune system rather than support it.

I hope you found my advice on Anti-Nutrients helpful. Stay healthy, stay happy people.
