Food Cravings – What Your Body Really Needs


Listen to Your Body

If you are craving something your body is speaking to you. Listen to it! For example, if you are craving sweets, your body may need chromium, phosphorus, sulfur, or tryptophan. Instead of going for a sweet you can take a supplement or find the chromium, phosphorus, sulfur, or tryptophan in the foods you eat. For example, chromium can be found in broccoli, grapes, cheese, dried beans, and chicken. One specific sweet that people often crave is chocolate.
Another craving you might get is for bread. It may mean that your body is in need of nitrogen. You can find nitrogen in meats, beans, and nuts. If you are craving soda or other carbonated drinks, eat high-protein foods that contain nitrogen.
 Some crave fatty foods. If that’s the case for you, give your body some calcium. When it comes to calcium, it is important to know that calcium and magnesium depend on each other for proper assimilation in the body. Calcium is found in mustard or turnip greens, broccoli, kale (basically any dark green vegetable) as well as legumes and cheese.
One last craving that we’ll mention is salty foods. It may mean you need chloride, which can be found in fish. The next time you have a craving, try a supplement or one of the foods listed in the food cravings infographic below and see if the craving goes away!

Acidophilus

Have You Heard of This Probiotic?






If you’re like most average adults, chances are you experience some sort gastric distress on a regular basis. Unless you’re vigilant about consuming a very healthy diet, the different chemicals, preservatives, and other ingredients in fast-food and microwaveable meals don’t tend to sit well.
There are also instances when people, even with incredibly healthy diets, can experience gastric distress. Regardless of why it’s happening, the important thing is to know that there’s a solution – a probiotic called Acidophilus.
You’re probably thinking, “Oh great, another wonder-drug nutritional supplement,” right? Well that’s just not true when it comes to Acidophilus. While it does supplement your body, Acidophilus is a probiotic, a distinction that’s important to make because of the difference between a straight nutritional supplement and probiotic.

Know your Intestinal Flora

It’s normal to think of bacteria as something that’s bad for your overall health. After all, bacteria is often associated with disease.
Generally, you’d be right. However, there is such a thing as good bacteria. In fact, research shows that without the right bacteria in your digestive tract – your stomach and intestines – you’re at much greater risk for obesity, depression, and an immune system that’s less effective than it could be.
So while it’s a bit odd to wrap your head around the fact that you need bacteria in your diet, this is a nutritional fact you should be aware of.
