Here’s what Christine and Jimmy talked about in Episode 8:

1. Review of Nutrient Classes:
A. Water
B. Macronutrients
1. Proteins=18% of the body
2. Fats=15% of the body
3. Carbohydrates=2% of the body
C. Micronutrients
1. Minerals=4% of the body
2. Vitamins=1% of the body
2. Facts about proteins
A. They make up about 18% of the body
B. They are the building blocks of our body
C. The human body uses about 50,000 different proteins to form 4 different things:
1. Nerves
2. Muscles
3. Organs
4. Flesh
D. Some proteins have specialized functions like
1. Enzymes which help with all biochemical processes
2. Some proteins are antibodies. Antibodies help to fight infection and destroy foreign invaders
that get into the body.
E. Proteins are essential for normal growth.
F. The help form hormones which help with regulation of metabolism and plays a role in just about
every important function of the body.
G. Some are hemoglobin. Hemoglobin contains red bloods cells which help deliver oxygen
throughout the body.
H. Proteins are needed for the blood to clot.
I. Proteins even help control the pH of the tissues and blood
J. Animal proteins are our only source of COMPLETE proteins. Proteins from animals contain all
of the essential amino acids needed PLUS many that are nonessential, meaning the body can
make those. Vegetables only contain incomplete proteins, meaning they do not have all the
essential proteins our bodies need. The 2 best sources of vegetable proteins are legumes and
cereal grains, neither of which we consume on a ketogenic diet.
K. Proteins cannot be properly utilized without sources of animal fat. This is why you see protein
AND fat in eggs, milk, fish, and meats.
L. Our ancestors ate mostly meat (nose to tail) and SUPPLEMENTED their diets with vegetables,
fruits, nuts, and seeds.
1. Our best source of zinc is from animal products
2. Usable vitamin B12 only occurs in animal products
M. A high protein, low fat diet can cause problems
1. Causes too rapid of growth
2. Causes depletion of vitamin A and vitamin D and some minerals, too.
N. Red meat contains cysteine which is essential for a healthy immune system.
O. The sulfur-containing amino acid cysteine is also needed for making glutathione, which is a
powerful antioxidant that helps prevent cell damage.
P. Those 50,000 proteins combine to make 22 different amino acids and the amino acids are
broken down into 4 different classes of amino acids
1. 10 Essential-the body can’t make these so we have to get them from outside sources.
2. 10 Nonessential-the body can make these.
3. 7 Conditional-the body can usually make these under normal circumstances, but a sickness or
stress might cause the body to not be able to make them.
4. 2 Nonstandard-these are not found in the human body but in a gutless marine worm

List of Amino Acids

1. Essential Amino Acids
2. Nonessential Amino Acids
3. Other Amino Acids
A. Isoleucine
A. Alanine A. Carnitine

J. Arginine J. Tyrosine-thyroid function

Q. Roles of amino acids
1. Forming proteins
2. Helping with neurotransmitter production
3. Muscle production
4. Hormone production
5. RNA and DNA regulation.
3. Sources Of Protein
1. Fish and seafood that is wild caught. These should be mainly smaller fish to help prevent exposure
to heavy metals
2. Beef, lamb, buffalo, elk, goat, and more that is organic and 100% grass fed and grass finished
3. Poultry like chicken, turkey, and duck that is also organic and 100% pasture raised, and eggs
4. Dairy products from animals that are 100% pasture raised and organic. These include full fat
cheeses, full fat cottage cheese, full fat raw milk and cream, full fat yogurt and full fat, grass fed
butter.
5. Nuts and seeds like pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, pecans, macadamia nuts, pili nuts,
and pistachio nuts that have been soaked and sprouted

Note: These Amino Acids are not used as building blocks within the body but are still important.

4. Nonstandard Amino Acids (Not found in the human body)
A. Selenocysteine-discovered in 1986
B. Pyrrolysine-discovered in 2002 (found in a gutless marine worm)

7: MINERALS – Roles, Benefits, Signs Of Deficiency, And Food Sources

Subscribe via: Apple Podcasts | Google Play | RSS | Android

Welcome to The Nutritional Pearls Podcast! Focusing on topics that include digestion, adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, supplementation, electrolytes, stomach acid, and so much more, “The Nutritional Pearls Podcast” features Christine Moore, NTP and is hosted by Jimmy Moore, host of the longest running nutritional podcast on the Internet.  Sharing nuggets of wisdom from Christine’s training as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Jimmy’s years of podcasting and authoring international bestselling health and nutrition books, they will feature a new topic of interest and fascination in the world of nutritional health each Monday. Listen in today as Christine and Jimmy welcome special guest Carole St. Laurent, NTP from foodhealthrive.com  a “real food” nutritionist. Carole uses local, properly prepared and nutrient dense foods to restore balance and support wellness, with bio-individual strategies aimed for success. Listen in as they talk all about minerals in Episode 7.

Here’s what Christine, Jimmy, and Carole talked about in Episode 7:

Minerals

1. Roles of minerals
A. Maintains proper pH balance in the body
B. helps transport nutrients across cell membranes
C. Maintains proper nerve conduction
D. Helps contract and relax muscles
E. regulates tissue growth
2. Breakdown of Macro and Micro Minerals
A. Macro Minerals-magnesium, Phosphorus, Calcium, Potassium, chlorine, sodium, and sulfur
B. Microminerals-Iron, zinc, copper, chromium, selenium, iodine, boron, manganese, molybdenum,
lithium (used to treat bipolar disorder), rubidium (required in smaller amounts in the body)
3. Uses/benefits of minerals
A. Electrolytes
1. Salt, for most people is not an issue so don’t be afraid of salt. It takes 7.5 grams of salt to raise
a normal systolic blood pressure reading 5 or 6 points (140 is considered high). Salt is not good
or bad. It’s whether it’s out of balance with potassium. (New York Times Article and JAMA
study (11/23/11 by Gina Kolata “Urinary Sodium and Potassium Excretion and Risk of
Cardiovascular Events”
B. Calcium-Bone remodeling
1. Cofactors needed for calcium
a. Systemic pH: normal blood pH should be between 7.35 and 7.45
1. When blood pH rises or becomes more alkaline, calcium is deposited into the bone.
2. When blood pH falls or becomes more acidic, calcium is deposited into the blood.
b. Hydration-electrolytes and water
c. Hormones-parathyroid in particular
d. Other Minerals (Magnesium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Manganese, Boron, Copper, and
Zinc
e. Vitamins (A, D, E, K)-D needed with the Parathyroid to increase levels of calcium in the
blood
f. Essential Fatty Acids)-necessary to transport calcium across the cell membrane
g. Digestion (proper stomach pH (Between 1.5 and 3)
2. K2 (Activator X) –K2 needed to help get calcium where it needs to go
C. Zinc-healthy immunity, better wound healing, aids in stomach acid (HCl) production, DNA
synthesis
D. Magnesium-helps calcium do what it’s supposed to do
4. Endocrine system and minerals-each endocrine gland has a mineral on which it particularly
depends.
1. Pituitary Gland: Manganese
2. Thyroid: Iodine
3. Pancreas: Chromium
4. Gonads: Selenium
5. Adrenals: Copper-if adrenals aren’t functioning right, they can’t produce Aldosterone. If
Aldosterone levels are low, your body will dump salt through urination which will lead to an
electrolyte imbalance.
6. Prostate: Zinc

5. Signs of mineral deficiency
A. magnesium-heart palpitations, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite
B. electrolyte imbalances: fatigue, headache, muscle cramps
C. Zinc-Depressed immune system, low HCl production, slow wound healing
D. Calcium-numbness in extremities
E. Iron-anemia, feeling weak or tired
F. Potassium-muscle cramping, weakness, constipation, bloating or abdominal pain, irregular
heartbeat

6. Sources of minerals-our body can’t make minerals so we have to get them from our diet.
A. Calcium-milk, cheese, yogurt, broccoli, kale, Chinese cabbage
B. Zinc-oysters, beef, turkey, cheese, swiss chard, pumpkin seeds
C. Iron-meat, poultry, or fish, beef liver, clams, spinach, mussels, spirulina (seaweed), oysters, ginger
D. Magnesium-Almonds, cashews, seeds, green leafy vegetables (spinach)
E. Potassium-avocado, dark leafy greens, beets, cantaloupe, sardines

Nutritional Pearls for Episode 7:
1. DON’T BE AFRAID OF SALT!
2. Our body can’t make minerals so we have to get them from our diet.
3. Calcium is very important for multiple functions in the body

6: DETOX – Toxins, Health Impact, Systems Involved In Detoxification, Ways To Detox

Subscribe via: Apple Podcasts | Google Play | RSS | Android

Welcome to The Nutritional Pearls Podcast! Focusing on topics that include digestion, adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, supplementation, electrolytes, stomach acid, and so much more, “The Nutritional Pearls Podcast” features Christine Moore, NTP and is hosted by Jimmy Moore, host of the longest running nutritional podcast on the Internet.  Sharing nuggets of wisdom from Christine’s training as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Jimmy’s years of podcasting and authoring international bestselling health and nutrition books, they will feature a new topic of interest and fascination in the world of nutritional health each Monday. Listen in today as Christine and Jimmy welcome special guest Daniele Brose to talk all about detoxification in Episode 6.

Here’s what Christine, Jimmy, and Daniele talked about in Episode 6:

1. Definition of toxin: any substance that creates irritating and/or harmful effects in the body
A. External sources: pollution
B. Internal sources: cellular wastes
C. Any substance if too much, like water, sodium and almost all nutrients (in certain situations
can cause a toxic environment
2. Toxins are everywhere
A. Air and water pollution
B. Radiation
C. Chemicals
D. Poorly digested foods
E. Heavy metal exposure
F. Bacterial/Parasitic/Fungal overgrowth
3. Detoxification is always taking place. It’s the way the body heals and repairs itself.
A. The vast majority of detoxification happens when we sleep. This is why it’s not good to eat
to close to going to bed. If we eat too close to going to bed, the body has to focus on
digesting the food rather than the detoxification process.
B. All the systems of the body have to be functioning properly before detoxification can take
place
1. Diet: processed, lifeless food is seen as a toxin to the body
2. Digestion: If you aren’t digesting correctly, the detoxification pathways can be blocked
3. Blood Sugar Balance: Blood sugar imbalances stress the liver and deplete the B vitamins
which aid the liver in the detoxification process
4. Fats: fat tissue helps to protect the body from the toxins because the toxins are stored
there; the fat we consume keeps the bile flowing. The bile is what removes the toxins from the body through the intestinal tract
5. Minerals: detoxification can create acidic blood. Minerals, in particular calcium, help
buffer this affect
6. Hydration: helps keep the body flushing properly; needed to perspire properly; keeps
blood flowing so toxins can be carried to where they need to go.
4. Systems involved in the detoxification process:
A. Cardiovascular System-blood carries oxygen and nutrients to every cell as well as carrying
away metabolic debris; blood helps cleans detoxification sites like the liver; blood clears the pathway for the immune system
-Blood is the first thing to be affected by toxins. Once affected, it carries the toxins
throughout the body affecting other systems.
B. Lymph System-lymph (interstitial fluid) flows through the lymph nodes where bacteria and
viruses are filtered out; helps prevent the liver from getting overburdened
C. Digestive System-not only does the digestive system physically break down food, but it also
does the following:
1. Scans food for invaders (bacteria, parasites) and filters them out
2. Detoxifies poorly digested, fermented toxins
3. Eliminates toxins and other unusable substances from the body
-Organs of the digestive system that are particularly important to detoxification are the
liver and gallbladder (cleanses and purifies blood) and intestines (provides a barrier from
the rest of the body and has good bacteria which aid in detoxification)
D. Urinary System-kidneys filter the blood to remove cellular waste (some water and bile
pigments)
E. Skin-sweat glands act like a second kidney; sweating is a very effective way to help
remove toxins from the body.
F. Respiratory System-lungs eliminate carbon dioxide;
5. Examples of detoxification methods
A. Dry Brush Massage-helps keep lymph moving
B. Bouncing Exercises
C. Enemas/Colonics/Purgatives (anything that helps cleanse the body of feces)
D. Sweating Therapies-Exercise

All bodily functions must be working properly before you attempt to do a detoxification protocol

3: BLOOD SUGAR – The Hormones And Organs Involved In Blood Sugar Regulation

Welcome to The Nutritional Pearls Podcast! Focusing on topics that include digestion, adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, supplementation, electrolytes, stomach acid, and so much more, “The Nutritional Pearls Podcast” features Christine Moore, NTP and is hosted by Jimmy Moore, host of the longest running nutritional podcast on the Internet.  Sharing nuggets of wisdom from Christine’s training as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Jimmy’s years of podcasting and authoring international bestselling health and nutrition books, they will feature a new topic of interest and fascination in the world of nutritional health each Monday. Listen in today as Christine and Jimmy dig deep into blood sugar regulation in Episode 3.

[PowerPress]

Here’s what Christine and Jimmy talked about in Episode 3:

Normal Blood Sugar Regulation

1. Hormones involved in blood sugar regulation
A. Insulin
1. Secreted by the beta cells of the pancreas
2. stores glucose in cells
3. brings glucose to the liver so the liver can convert it to glycogen (glycogenesis)
B. Glucagon
1. produced by the alpha cells of the pancreas
2. helps maintain blood sugar levels between meals
3. creates “sugar” by glycogenolysis (breakdown of glycogen into glucose in the liver) and
gluconeogenesis
C. Cortisol
1. Adrenal hormone secreted by the adrenal cortex
2. released by the adrenal glands when blood sugar gets too low because glucagon is not
sufficient
3. mobilizes proteins to be converted to glucose
4. replenishes glycogen storage (glycogenesis)
5. Stimulates the breakdown of triglycerides and the release of fatty acids from adipose tissue
(lipolysis)
D. Epinephrine
1. Stimulates the liver to create glucose from proteins and some fats
2. Stimulates the liver to convert glycogen back to glucose to be released into the bloodstream
3. Increases heart rate and blood pressure
2. Three main organs in blood sugar regulation
A. Pancreas
1. Beta Cells release insulin when there is a need for glucose storage
2. Alpha Cells release glucagon when there is a need to make glucose
a. signals the liver to turn glycogen into glucose (glycogenolysis)
b. signals the liver to break down proteins into glucose (gluconeogenesis)
3. Delta Cells secrete the hormone somatostatin which inhibits gastric secretion
B. Liver
1. Creates ketones from fatty acids
2. Receives signals from the pancreas (insulin or Glucagon) to store or create glucose
3. Creates glucose from proteins and some fats
C. Adrenal Glands
1. Releases cortisol which mobilizes proteins to help glucose (gluconeogenesis); kicks in when
glucagon is not enough
2. Releases epinephrine which helps in emergency situations by increasing heart rate, blood flow
to the heart, muscles, and liver, dilates airways and determines our response to stress

Nutritional Pearl in Episode 3:
It’s important to keep blood sugar levels in normal ranges so the adrenal glands don’t get worn out

2: DIGESTION – How It Works, Role Of Stomach Acid, And Food Breakdown

Welcome to The Nutritional Pearls Podcast! Focusing on topics that include digestion, adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, supplementation, electrolytes, stomach acid, and so much more, “The Nutritional Pearls Podcast” features Christine Moore, NTP and is hosted by Jimmy Moore, host of the longest running nutritional podcast on the Internet.  Sharing nuggets of wisdom from Christine’s training as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Jimmy’s years of podcasting and authoring international bestselling health and nutrition books, they will feature a new topic of interest and fascination in the world of nutritional health each Monday. Listen in today as Christine and Jimmy get to the bottom of gut health in Episode 2.

[PowerPress]

Here’s what Christine and Jimmy talked about in Episode 2:

How Digestion Works

Definition of Digestion:  Digestion is the mechanical and chemical breakdown of food.  The goal of digestion is to break down food to molecules small enough that the nutrients can be absorbed and used by the body.

Proper digestion is absolutely necessary if you are going to be healthy.  Every part of our body depends on our digestive system to work correctly in order to absorb the nutrients it needs to function at it’s best.

Brain:  Digestion starts in the brain-parasympathetic state.  Sights and smells trigger salivary glands to release salivary amylase.

Mouth:  Chewing breaks down the food and salivary amylase starts breaking down and moistening the food so it’s easier to swallow.   The digestion of carbohydrates starts in the mouth.  When you swallow, the food that is broken down enters the esophagus as Bolus.

Stomach:  The stomach continues with the digestion and breakdown of food using gastric juices (Mucous, Pepsinogen/Pepsin and Hydrochloric Acid –HCl-).  The main digestion of proteins starts in the stomach.  Normal stomach pH is 1.5-3.

Some of the functions of stomach acid:

  1. Bathes the stomach
  2. Disinfects the stomach and kills bacteria and parasites that might be harmful
  3. Acid activates the pepsin so proteins can be digested

Duodenum/Small Intestine:  The food that is broken down in the stomach then enters the duodenum (the upper part of the small intestine) is called Chyme.  Proper pH of this chyme causes the duodenum to release secretin which triggers the pancreas to release pancreatic juices and cholecystokinin which triggers the gall bladder to release bile.  The bile is what helps us digest the fats we eat.  When the chyme leaves the duodenum, the food we have eaten is almost totally digested.

  1. The small intestine is where the nutrients get absorbed into the bloodstream
  2. Carbohydrates get broken down into glucose molecules
  3. Proteins get broken down into amino acids and polypeptides
  4. Fats get broken down into fatty acids and glycerol (alcohol) molecules

The Large Intestine:  The chyme that is not digested passes into the large intestine through a valve called the ileocecal valve.  In the large intestine, water is recycled, recycles the waste materials which nourishes the colon, the large intestine captures any nutrients that are lost which helps feed the gut flora and these nutrients get converted to Vitamins K, B1, B2, B12 and butyric acid (good for gut health), and the leftovers get formed in waste (fecal matter) which is expelled out of the body.

Proper digestive function is crucial for the body to be healthy
