Hi can you recomend me a fantastic red wine with no alcohol and no sugar I live in montreal anada where is the best red wine noalcohol and no sugar added thank you.

See these lower sugar version http: I am not sure how you measure top 25, but it is different from a journal published from the European Journal. I just watched Dr. I watched that also…very interesting product but I am sure it can be done with eating all the good things he mentioned , taking care regarding lectins.

A good amount of the polyphenols is better then none? A lot of larger grocery stores have in their fresh food section some clear plastic cups of up to a quart in size of polyphenols. So to get them in your system faster, what if you put a cup of them in your blender with water or yogurt?

I cheat and put in a little sugar only 15 calories in a teaspoon. You list soy products. I was under the impression, that soy is high in lectins. It has many benefits. Tea is a natural gift that is rich in antioxidants. It also contains vital vitamins and minerals such as calcium, manganese, copper, carotin, selenium, and potassium, as well as vitamin A,vitamin B,vitamin C,vitamin E and vitamin K.

Additionally, it contains folic acid, niacin amide and other detoxifying alkaloids. It is developed in semi-fermented processing, providing the oolong tea with numerous polyphenolic compounds, adding even more valuable health benefits to oolong tea. Oolong tea also contains caffeine and theophylline and theobromine which are similar to caffeine which on consumption may stimulate nervous system. The polyphenol compound found in oolong tea is very effective in controlling the metabolism of fat in the body.

It activates certain enzymes, thereby enhancing the functions of fat cells in the body. It is commonly believed that daily consumption of oolong tea can reduce obesity. More widespread studies need to be done on humans, but early studies are very promising. In one animal study, mice that were given polyphenols in addition to a high-fat and high-sugar diet still showed a decline in overall body weight and fat index.

Some earlier studies actually showed that the caffeine content was the active ingredient behind the weight loss, but it now appears to be mainly due to polyphenols. Apparently, the active components in oolong tea make fat work for you!

Thanks for listing foods easily found in supermarkets. Are GM foods also rich in antioxidants? Does polyphenols good for people with heart diseases? Like to find out more of the foods and if they are good substitutes for or can used in conjunction with Fomap diets due to my severe IBS. Thank you very much for the list of foods that have polyphenols in them. I also copied the honorable mentioned in the top 50 I was hoping for more of the top 50 so I could balance my diet off with more of the right veggies.

Yes could I be cheeeeeeeeecky too and say it would be lovely to have the spicey pumpkin cake recipe. Thank you again for going to the trouble to put all this info on the web for us. For years going to Doctors and medication, I was never put on an elimination diet.

About a year and ahalf ago my son was diagnosed with IBS and found to be lactose intolarent. So I did my own elimination diet. No change till I stopped dairy within 24hrs I noticed a difference and 3 days later I was back to my normal self, pre I say this because I was never sent to a dietition and never put on an elimination diet and I am wondering if you have if you have great but it you have not then I think you would be wize to follow that path, because you maybe able to leave IBS behind you.

It is very liberating to have such a huge problem lifted off my mind. So good luck and I hope you can find that balance you can live with. I thought anything that contained soy was not good for your body, along with wheat grass and goji berries. Have I been mis-informed?

Are they good as part of a high polyphenol diet? I need to know how much potassium is in Vital Reds, per capfull as per your labeled instruction. I have been taking it for 6 months and my potassium level went way up, Please advise. What do you think about what Dr. Steven Gundry says about soy products? He says its back by his own research and that we should avoid ALL soy products that they not good for your body at all, he gives quite a few reasons.

Data supports the fact that it will provide a slight reduction in your cholesterol. But there is a lot of fear mongering around soy. It looks like the darker fruits are what is best, but what about the vegetables? You only mention three in the honorable mention column. Hi, yes I agree, I have just asked if I could get hold of the other veggies so I could balance my diet out with the more beneficial veggies.

One of the best article ever read and i will recommend to others iron rich foods for vegetarians Thanks for providing Us this wonderful article. These polyhenols are good for weight loss, but what about energy? I immediately started feeling better but still low, low energy. Early I gave up sugary teas and started drinking blonde roast coffee in the pod. I have not been on steriods for RA since. I take them now for Pleural Effusion. I will drink more coffee and I will add many more berries to my diet to keep the inflamation down!

This is more of a question than a comment. I am not a doctor or nutritionist, but merely a guy who has developed a sudden interest in his health. Having come to realize we truly are what we eat and all diseases come as a result of dietary intake i want to change my habits before it becomes necessary to seek help from a doctor.

I want to intake more polyphenols however after reading how to use this phenol-explorer i still am confused. I would like to know which phenols help in prevention of diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. And which aid in the removal of plaques from the walls of my circulatory system. In short what foods should i eat to aid what i have listed as my concerns…. I have food allergies to tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish and most berries. Fresh berries such as strawberries, blueberries and blackberries make my throat glands itch.

Melons, bananas and avocados do the same. What do you suggest as alternatives and maintain a balanced diet. I do Sri k two cups of coffee in the morning and one teaspoon if apple cider vinegar in water.

I read that you can lose weight quickly by eating and drinking polyphenols! French wine is suppose to be full of them too. What about herbs in tea and Apple Cider Vinegar? I want to thank you for the list of 25 foods! I know you put a lot of work into this. If you are allergic to tannins in wine red white ect. Would it be possible to get the full list of fruits vetables? My email is Mrs green jeans at Gmail. Thank you so much for all your work.

Thank you all agian…? I agree, I am waiting for the serve size. Do you have any knowledge of people being allergic to polyphenols? Would you consider it a reasonable idea that if I improve my gut health this allergy could clear up? I was surprised to see soy products on the list since a lot of nutritionists are saying to not eat them at all. I do not understand. Doctor Steven Gundry is talking about products what is not good and that is also soy products. Now I see on the list for polypenols there are several soy products?

So now it is good? Gundry is not a reliable source. His website is trying to sell you something. Learn some critical-thinking skills. Thank you for the information and polyphenols. I will start with eating only items on the above list and maybe I will be able to lose most of this pounds. I am researching Lectin and Polyphenols and I am finding that some of the foods that are rich in Polyphenols also contain Lectin.

This tells us that the multiplies of the biggest digit in any base number system acts the same because the multiplies of nine in the base ten quantity system https: We might name this, providing you with half a recreation or giving you an unfinished recreation.

I would eliminate the soy items as they are high in lectins which are toxic to the body, and Dr. Gundry is NOT a business may selling products! He is a respected cardiovascular surgeon who had done incredible amount of study in this area. If he says stay away from soy products and goji berries it is because his studies show they are harmful to your body. That is a good tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere.

Gluten in what can wreck the digestive tract. A probiotic might help him with his digestive issues google it and maybe try an probiotic enzyme. Hello Jeanne, Tell your husband to cut out the sugar — entirely! Thanks for the information,its really informative. Hopefully it will change our life style. Where are the serving sizes for these Top 25 Polyphenol foods?

Dr Gundry says you should never eat soy. Soy is horrible for the human body!!! There is no mention of the adverse bad boy Lectin Comments on this would benwelcone. There is no mention of the adverse bad boy Lectin Comments on this would be most welcome.

Everything else sounds wonderful and I shall be adding those things to my grocery list.

Please keep me informed on all polyphenol studies and benefits of. I started taking saw palmetto, all of march of this year. But, because of the issue with insulin resistance, I recommend other alternatives.

If you want more information on the new research being done about the polyol pathway, Dr. Richard Johnson, the chief of the division of kidney disease and hypertension at the University of Colorado, is continuing that research. There is SO much evidence out there showing detrimental effects of artificial sweeteners, so I will just give you a brief synopsis.

There are over 10, documented reports of reactions to artificial sweeteners, including death. Aspartame and sucralose have been shown to cause bloating, weight-gain, depression, migraines, anaemia, kidney dysfunction, infertility, and spontaneous abortions. They also destroy healthy gut bacteria. Aspartame is also an excitotoxin, which causes overactive brain cells; to the point that they die.

Again, to achieve optimal health and weight, it is better to look for something naturally occurring in the environment. My favourites are stevia and small amounts of raw honey. If nothing else, it does make it simple. Easy healthy meals and desserts are simple to make once you know the right way to use these beautiful sweeteners. Hi, I have only just found out about your website after watching A Current Affair and now have ordered your book. I would like to know your thoughts on rapadura sugar which claims to be also low Gi and not processed.

I am looking forward to reading your book. All the best, Angela. If you eat sugar, then Rapadura sugar is definitely less damaging because it still has all its nutritional value. However, it is still sugar, so I avoid it. Thanks for your wonderful website! Christine a lot of what you say makes a lot of sense. But as a child I lived in a sugar area and as far as I can see sugar cane is a plant and should also be good for you. I have sucked sweetness out of sugar cane and wonder how it goes from plant to bad food?

The problem is not the sugar cane itself, it is the amount we consume. Traditional societies had access to sweets, like maple sugar or syrup or raw honey. Research shows that if we emulate these traditional societies and stay under 15g of fructose every day, then we can also emulate their health. They were strong and healthy and had no sign of modern disease. Hi Christina, i was excited about your story. I have gained 10kgs. Can your fat revolution help me?

As a vegetarian, you will need to take special care to replace the proteins and fats that you would get eating meat and animal fat. The fats can easily replaced with plenty of butter and coconut oil.

The important thing is to eliminate sugar and excess grains. Dear Christine, I have purchased your book for which I am waiting delivery. I have 2 questions. Firstly where can I buy buckwheat flour and as I love my daily cup of tea what is the best to use as a whitener. You should be able to find buckwheat flour in most health food shops or organic grocery stores. Basically, I was just wanting to know what grains or carbs I can eat on your plan if any and how often?

For me, it is a lifestyle choice. Grains can be very damaging to our digestion and also make us gain weight, and we eat way too many of them these days, so I do limit them. Hi Christine, I stumbled across your website after reading a recipe posted on thermomix that must have been adapted from your buckwheat pancakes. I love everything you have to say. About 3 months ago my husband and I reduced our fructose intake and he lost 10 kilos.

I was weighing in at 55 and wasnt really looking at the weight loss as much as I was more interested on the healing of the body of auto immune illnesses. I have Chronic fatigue syndrome and Fibromylagia and suffer from Costochrondits plus peri-menopause. Having reduce the fructose I have not had any symptoms of any of my illnesses!!! I have so much energy. We both power walk every day. And i do 10 min daily ab and butt exercises. I did lose weight 5 kilos and am really toned and slim.

Thank you for your books which I will purchase shortly. It really frustrates me that there is nothing written on the labels as to the ratio to be used when replacing sugar.

I had no idea, so when i made my choc pudding in a mug the other night and used 1 tsp of stevia i was using the sweetness of two cups of sugar!! No wonder it tasted weird. I would love to include your story in my next book if you are interested. I was looking for someone who had good results with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.

I would love to talk about the weight loss for you both too. Anyway, if you are interested, can you send me an email through the contact page? I think your cook book is very practical and I like how you have a substitute for all the sweet things most people like. This is a huge plus for me-no deprivation! I am both saddened and angry that people have been misled for so long but I truly believe that change is gathering momentum. I for one am spreading the word and the butter! Kind regards and may thanks.

It seems one reason to ultrafilter honey may be extending shelf life and providing crystal clear honey. But skeptics and those in the industry state the main reason to do this is to obscure the origin of the honey, which may be India, China, or Brazil, and may contain prohibited levels of pesticides, heavy metals, antibiotics, and dilutions with cheap high fructose corn syrup. Love your book Christine. What are your thoughts on cheese?

Soft cheeses are the best, rather than the commercial hard cheeses. Gouda, havarti, brie, camenbert, swiss, etc. Hi Christine, Thanks for spreading the word on healthy eating. Have you heard of the sweetener xylitol? If your familiar with Kat James and her work, she likes this for baking. I made your banana muffins the other day the whole family loves them including my 2 year old and sugar obsessed husband. However, I ran out of olive oil so I used ml olive oil, ml butter and ml of coconut oil.

They taste delicious but I was just wondering if this is ok? Hi Christine I purchased your book today and cant wait to read it.

I am already a user of good quality fats…have been for about years and am so much healthier for it… I have been either pregnant or feeding for most of the past 3. Also what is your thoughts on Rice Malt Syrup as a sugar alternative…?

Thanks for covering this topic. I, like the post above, am very interested in your thoughts on rice malt syrup also? I use it instead of raw honey when I cook. It is a glucose based sweetener, but not highly processed like dextrose. Brown rice syrup even better again, but hard to find.

I have both of your books and they are amazing!. I think I am taking more protein, than fat. I put on 2kg in the last 3months. Could you please suggest a day meal plan, for this amount of fat please? Your email address will not be published. Powered by eShop v. Contact Query about order Want to see Christine personally? The healthiest alternatives to sugar Posted on August 9, by Christine. Stevia I sometimes see stevia listed with artificial sweeteners, but it is actually very natural.
