Glycemic - Phytonutrients - Lycopene
Glycemic (glycemia) (血糖) – the presence of glucose in blood
Glycemic load (GL) and Glycemic index (GI)
Glycemic load 血糖負荷 = Carbohydrate of food (in gram) x Glycemic index of food
Glycemic index 血糖生成指數
A numerical Index that ranks carbohydrates based on their rate of glycemic response (i.e. their conversion to glucose within the human body). Glycemic Index uses a scale of 0 to 100, with higher values given to foods that cause the most rapid rise in blood sugar. Pure glucose serves as a reference point, and is given a Glycemic Index (GI) of 100.
Glycemic index and glycemic load for 100+ foods
Glycemic index for fruits and vegetables
Phytonutrients: The active health-protecting vitality
Currently, the terms “phytonutrient” and “phytochemical” are interchangeably describing those plant compounds which are thought to have health-protecting qualities.
A red pigment in fruits and vegetables. lycopene intake, helps lower prostate cancer risk. Lycopene also shows benefit for the blood vessels around the heart, demonstrating protection to the blood vessels in the neck, better than vitamins A, E or CoQ10
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) 輔梅Q10(輔酵素)～流行的抗氧化物
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant made in the human body. CoQ10 is needed for basic cell function. CoQ10 levels decrease with age and may be low in people with cancer, certain genetic disorders, diabetes, heart conditions, HIV/AIDS, muscular dystrophies, and Parkinson’s disease.
Antioxidants are man-made or natural substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage. Antioxidants are found in many foods, including fruits and vegetables.
