(Health-NewsWire.Net, March 31, 2015 ) Orlando, FL -- Having a healthy diet filled with nutritious foods is one of the most popular ways to become physically healthy. Many health professionals strongly recommend regular exercise, healthy lifestyle and good eating habits in order to achieve optimum health. However, some nutritionists now warn that selecting the right foods may not be enough.
Research has revealed a link between high cooking temperatures and an increased risk for inflammation-related diseases. This means that it is not only important to choose nutritious food, but also to use the healthy food preparation techniques recommended by experts. Grilling and frying are not among the cooking methods recommended by healthcare professionals.
"Processed food and those that are cooked using unhealthy cooking methods contain substances that are dangerous to health and have low nutritional value. This is why experts recommend that people should choose both healthy foods and cooking methods," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
The Mount Sinai School of Medicine conducted a study, which found that frying or grilling food, especially at very high temperatures, can potentially lead to the formation of compounds that promote inflammation in the body. There are several medical conditions that are inflammation-related, and these appear to be more common among individuals who regularly eat food items that are cooked at high temperatures. Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are two examples of inflammatory conditions.
According to the Arthritis Foundation, there are compounds such as Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs) that can potentially play a major role in the development of diseases related with inflammation. These compounds are often found in people who are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. There were also studies that found cooking in high temperatures can create AGEs, which are easily absorbed by the body.
AGEs are typically found in fast food items such as burgers and fried chicken. Many experts recommend that individuals should reduce their consumption of meat products that are microwaved, fried, broiled and grilled. It is similarly important to increase intake of healthier food such as fruits and vegetables. Eating these food items means intake of little to no AGEs and reducing one's risk for a wide variety of preventable ailments.
Supplements can also be useful for those who cannot eat all the required nutrients in their meals. Many consumers are now turning to curcumin supplements, which are believed to help reduce inflammation throughout the body. Experts suggest looking for curcumin supplements that include a black pepper extract to enhance the typically low absorption rates (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
