Eating a healthy diet combined with regular exercise are the key factors in achieving a healthy life. But wait, do you know that aside from these two key factors, there is an important step that we sometimes overlooked? That is checking out or reading the nutrition facts label of the foods we buy. With so many processed foods available on the market, knowing their nutritional facts and ingredients before consuming them can keep you stay healthy, strong, and away from illnesses.
In the major discussion about labels by Dr. Dexter Macalinta, a registered nutritionist and physician from Calamba Medical Center, he stated the first part of the nutrition label or nutrition facts that can be seen behind the food packages and drink mixes is the servings per container. One serving is equivalent to 1 fluid ounce (fl oz). Per serving, the nutrition label, then shows you the number of calories it contains (calories per serving), as well as the percentage % of daily values, which is the percent of the daily allowance of specific nutrients and minerals your food or drink gives you. The percentage of that daily value is the recommended amount of nutrients a regular person should have as part of their recommended daily calorie intake – 2000 calories for women and 2500 for men.
So, if you’re keeping track of the calorie content, fat level, and grams of sugar per serving in every food you intake, or you just simply want to eat more nutritious foods always check the nutrition fact label. And with that, Organique Acai Premium Blend helps you live the healthiest life because if you’ll check the nutrition facts, it only contains 1 gram of total fat and the percentage % of daily values for total fat is 2% (40 grams) for a 2000-calorie diet, which is good if you want to have a healthier diet.
Other daily values indicated in the nutrition fact are cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, and the ingredients used. It’s very important to check these, since each one of us has a unique body health situation and it will help too if the food content can trigger possible allergies. An example of this is the Organique Acai Premium Blend, where the first main ingredient indicated is an organic Acai puree. This helps explain the sugar and fiber content, which goes into 5 grams of total carbohydrates. This is just a small percentage of your recommended carbohydrate intake. According to Dr. Macalintal, we should also be on the lookout for buzzwords such as partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, which can indicate trans fat content, even on the label says that there are 0 trans fats per serving. It is possible that the trans fat amount could be rounded down from 0.5 to 0 causing us to consume more trans fat especially if we take more servings.
If you are taking food supplements in your journey to a healthier life, you should check also the nutrition fact and the ingredients used since these supplements are also processed foods and can contain artificial additives. Make sure that you’re only taking food supplements with organic ingredients like the Organique Acai Premium Blend. The ingredients used are all-natural and safe to take daily even though you are taking maintenance medicine. Take one shot a day before breakfast (or 30 minutes after breakfast if you have a sensitive stomach), to kick start your healthy lifestyle with high vitamin and fiber content.
