Inadequate nutrition

The effects of poor nutrition on your health

At least 1 in 4 people eat some type of fast food every day.

The vast majority of Americans don't follow proper nutrition patterns nowadays , which contributes to an increasement of diseases and in worst cases , death. The rate of overweight and obesity among adults and children has skyrocketed over the past few decades. Unfortunately, the consequences of an improper diet are much more extensive than simply being fat.

Your body relies on you to get the right nutrients in the right amounts from your diet so that it can function optimally. Eating a poor-nutrient diet is a lifestyle choice that can negatively affect your well-being and put you at risk. On the other hand, a balanced diet furnishes your body with a variety of foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fish, lean meat, poultry, nuts, legumes and unsaturated fats. Such foods provide all of the nutrients required for optimum health. Consume the right proportions of healthy food to help avoid the disadvantages of a nutrient-poor diet.

Some of the main issues that are very likely to be triggered by the lack of an adequate nutrition are the following:

  • Obesity and weight gain

    A significant weight gain is the most common issue when it comes to bad eating habits. This puts a burden on your body, reduces your energy level and may result in serious health conditions. Being overweight is about more than appearance. Extra pounds can lead to challenging health issues. Consuming excess calories in sugary drinks as well as fried, refined and processed foods typically high in saturated fat can lead to weight gain. According to the Centers for Disease Control, obesity contributes to problems such as hypertension, Type-2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, respiratory problems and some types of cancer.

  • Increased cancer risk

    Processed foods are high in calories and saturated fat, as are most meats and whole milk products. A diet high in saturated fats can increase your risk for cancer. These foods can contribute to you being overweight or obese, which also ups the odds of developing cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, obesity-related cancer types include esophagus, pancreas, colon and rectum, kidney, thyroid, gallbladder and breast.

  • Coronary artery disease

    A poor diet is a contributing factor to the buildup of plaque in coronary arteries, which can lead to a heart attack. In addition, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and excess body weight -- all related to poor diet -- contribute to plaque buildup. An article published in the "Journal of Nutrition, Health and Aging" in 2001 noted that studies provide strong evidence that a diet rich in nutrients contributes to the prevention of coronary heart disease.

  • Osteoporosis risk

    In the United States, more than 40 million people either have osteoporosis or are at high risk because of low bone mass, according to the National Institutes of Health. A poor diet contributes to the risk of osteoporosis, a disease that weakens bones -- making them more likely to break. Sufficient amounts of calcium and vitamin D are needed to maintain strong bones. A diet lacking in these nutrients, which are found in foods like low-fat milk, yogurt and fortified products, causes your bones to lose mass.

Eating a diet made up of poor-quality foods increases your risk for chronic diseases, while consuming a high-quality diet provides protection. When you regularly eat excess calories, you risk weight gain and obesity. Like a domino effect, excess weight raises your risk for diabetes. Eating too much salt, saturated fat or trans fat hikes up your risk for heart disease. Diet even influences certain types of cancers. A nutritious diet lowers the risk for cancers of the colon, breast and kidney among others, according to the World Health Organization.

Not only does a poor-quality diet have negative consequences for your physical health, it can also put your mental health at risk. Low-quality diets often fail to provide enough of the nutrients your brain needs to function properly. A diet deficient in omega-3 fatty acids may increase the risk for depression and other mental health issues.

Side effects of bad nutrition don't happen overnight. They develop over time from eating a diet lacking in vital nutrients and making poor lifestyle choices. The good news is you can make changes before it's too late.

Some of the actions you can consider if you want to avoid putting your health at risk are:

-Do not over-eat, you can try to drink a glass of water right before you start eating, this will make you feel fuller.
-Consider organically grown food, like fruits and vegetables.
-Eat as much of your food raw or lightly - cooked as possible. When you over - cook , foods tend to lose most of their nutrients.
-Avoid drinks containing sugar or caffeine.
-Avoid processed and refined foods.
-Avoid trans - fatty acids. Try to use only certain oils when cooking , keep essential fats in balance.
-Try to workout at least 30 minutes , 3 times a week.

How can SO2Sport help me lead a more healthy lifestyle?

SO2Sport supports a better absorption of fish oil supplements called Omega 3, 6 and 9. These are unsaturated fatty acids and are directly involved in the metabolism of the blood and the cardiovascular system.

SO2Sport participates in the body’s rejuvenation, revitalization, reparation, cleansing, restoration, and toxin elimination processes and supports a proper cell nutrient assimilation. To carry out these processes, the body uses energy accumulated in fatty tissue. This is a natural method that allows for gradual weight loss. Unlike with quick weight loss, our muscle fiber and connective tissues will not show signs of flaccidity; the body will only shed fat deposits. It is important to remember that there are more than 500,000 deaths per year due to obesity.

The incidence of cardiac conditions such as myocardial infarction, cardiac arrhythmia, sudden cardiac failure, acute lung edema and high blood pressure are closely related to obesity. Weight gain and obesity increase the risk of cancer of the uterus, colon, bladder, kidneys, and prostate; arthritis is also closely related to weight gain and obesity, and so are stress and lack of sexual drive.

One of the main components in its formula is L - carnitine , which is an amino-acid like compound that plays an important role in our organism. Its main function is to help the body to produce energy. Also, it aids with proper muscle movement and normal functioning of the brain and heart.

Many studies have proven that L-carnitine, if taken in a supplement, increases your chances of losing undesired weight. If you don't want to lose weight but stay in shape , you may increase your L-carnitine intake as well.

L-carnitine helps your body to produce energy by utilizing the body’s fat stores allowing you to work-out for longer and ultimately aiding in fat loss. Taking L-carnitine on a daily basis has been proven to increase the blood and muscular concentrations of this amino acid-like compound, enhancing fat metabolism.

Given its fat burning capabilities, L-carnitine optimises how your body uses fat for fuel allowing you to exercise for a longer time. During bulking periods, it can help limit fat gains and make a "cleaner" bulk.

Visceral belly fat is one of the toughest fats to lose and it causes many health problems. Once you begin to gain fat around your belly area, it will lead to fat gain within the organs such as the heart, the liver or even in muscle. Raising your L-carnitine intake will help you fight this fat because it increases fat burning, which has the effect of taking triglycerides and low-density lipoproteins out of the system so they don’t build up causing high cholesterol and atherosclerosis.

Start taking SO2Sport today and start noticing the great benefits it can offer to you and your loved ones, especially if someone you know is struggling with weight issues or other conditions originated from being over weight.
