What is Nutritional Medicine?

Nutritional medicine is the interactions of nutritional factors within human biochemistry, physiology and anatomy and the clinical application of knowledge of these interactions can be used in the modulation of structure and function for the prevention and treatment of disease as well as the betterment of health.

Evidence based practice is the foundation in clinical practice with therapeutic knowledge based on published scientific information. This nutrition scientific knowledge is derived from many science disciplines including physics, chemistry, anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology, pharmacology, toxicology, genetics, anthropology, palaeontology, microbiology, molecular biology, environmental science, nutrition, food science, psychology and sociology. Cross referencing nutrition across many different scientific fields allows for integrative knowledge and an extension to many current understandings in dietary concepts.

Recipe: Chocolate Gelatin Slice

This is a fantastic easy treat or dessert to make.

I usually use 90% or 95% Lindt dark chocolate to reduce the total amount of sugar. However, if you are just starting out in trying to reduce the total amount of dietary sugars you are having, then try dark chocolate 70% which is usually less bitter and then working your way up to 90% or 95%.

Fast Facts #8: Boron & Your Health

1- Boron is a trace mineral and in human nutrition known as a micronutrient. A micronutrient is something we only need in small amounts. However, despite only being needed in small amounts, micronutrients such as boron, have a significant role to play in our health.

2 - Boron has a diverse and vitally important role in our health. Some of the demonstrated benefits of boron include:

- It helps metabolise other vitamins an minerals.
- It is essential for our bone health in terms of growth and maintenance.
- It improves wound healing.
- Boron boosts magnesium absorption.
- It reduces inflammatory biomarkers.
- Boron increases the level of our antioxidant enzymes.
- It has been shown to be protective against pesticide induced oxidative stress and heavy metal toxicity.
- It helps with the electrical impulse activity in our brain improving cognitive performance and short term memory.
- It has shown promise in being preventative against some form of cancers such as prostate, breast and lung cancers.
- It is necessary for the production and metabolism of hormones including oestrogen, testosterone and vitamin D.

3 - Boron’s beneficial effects do not appear at intakes of less than 3 mg per day.

4 - Boron is naturally found in foods such as leafy green vegetables and nuts. Avocados are thought to have one of the highest naturally occurring boron content.

5 - The level of boron found in food is dependant on the boron concentration in the soils the food is grown.

6 - It is estimated that on average Australians consume up to to 2.28 mg of boron per day from their diets.
