Understanding D Chiro Inositol

Foods High in Inositol NOT the drug d-Chiro-inositol but the REAL inositol stuff! Quantities are approximated per 100 grams of food stuff, which is a little under 3.57+ oz.(each oz is 28 grams) 1,200 milligrams of Inositol was the therapeutic dose used in testing of the drug d-chiro-inositol (chemically carried inositol). The first column is the milligrams of inositol in each 100 grams of the food .The second column is the grams of food you would have to consume to get 1200 milligrams of inositol.  To put it simply: in 4 oz of soy lecithin you get almost twice the amount needed daily where as with beef you would need 1 1/2 lbs per day.  As you go down the table you need higher amounts of the food but the other benefits of the foods are not factored in here.  Consider that when eating a balanced diet. The grams needed column was rounded to the nearest 1/100th since it becomes arbitrary at that point. (tests done showed numbers extended well past 1/100ths place.) Remember to divide grams needed by  28 to figure out how many oz. would equal grams needed.

FAQs of Juicing for Fertility

Are you ready for juicing?  Want to make eating for fertility even easier?  Juicing is a little work for a LOT of benefit. Use the contact form to write with your juicing questions.    Q:  What juicer is the best? A:  There are so many great juicers out there. I don’t believe you have to have an expensive juicer at first.  Work your way up, if you want, but I have never needed something fancy.  At this writing I use a Jack La Lane Power Juicer.  We are just going to talk about what makes  good juice, why juice and how to juice. Q: Why Juice? A:   Juicing is a natural way to supplement your diet with natural vitamins and enzymes.  Juice is able to enter your system with very little work for your digestive system because it is already broken down. Q:  Are organically grown foods better? A:   By all means.  Organically means it is pesticide and GMO free with higher growing standards. Q:  Some juicer companies make a lot of health claims about their machines, are these claims legitimate? A:   A juicer must be able to liberate the hidden values from fibers and place them into the juice under pressure without loss by aeration or static in order to obtain the full nutritional value of such juices extracted from fruits and vegetables.
