Nutrition, the science of the way diet affects health, centres around developing a healthy eating plan. While many Australians enjoy a varied and nutritious diet, the federal Department of Health notes there is room for improvement, linking conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers to poor eating patterns.
A healthy diet involves eating a variety of foods everyday from the following groups:
· Breads, cereals, rice, pasta, noodles
· Vegetables, legumes
· Milk, yoghurt, cheese
· Meat, fish, poultry, eggs, nuts, legumes
Including plenty of plant foods (bread, cereal, rice, pasta, noodles, vegetables, legumes and fruit) is advised, as are consuming moderate amounts of animal foods (milk, yogurt, cheese, meat, fish, poultry, eggs) and drinking water to quench your thirst.
Other strategies for gaining optimal nutrition include eating a range of fresh, unprocessed foods and sticking to a regular eating pattern. Whole, unprocessed foods provide higher levels of essential nutrients per unit of energy, leading to better management of cell growth, cell maintenance, appetite and energy balance. In the case of eating patterns, consuming medium-sized meals every three to four hours has been shown to more greatly benefit the metabolism when compared with infrequent, haphazard food intake.
Mannatech’s new & improved Ambrotose Complex includes a new aloe source. Mannatech’s cutting edge science team continually studies new commercial processing of Aloe. These investigations lead to breakthroughs on how Mannatech could use this new technology to improve their current product line. After thorough development and safety testing Mannatech started to make the transition from Manapol to the Improved aloe in 2006. All Ambrotose products world wide have now made the transition from Manapol to improved aloe source. In some cases a few markets like Australia and New Zealand have chosen to keep some inventory of the Manapol material available in bulk.
