Plastic Surgery Blog: Minerals Are Good For the Body

magnesium sources Plastic Surgery Blog:  Minerals Are Good For the Body Healthy foods are known to have numerous benefits for maintaining a stable weight as well as reducing the risks of serious diseases. But, it’s hard to determine which minerals are most beneficial to our health. According to a recentonlinearticle magnesium is a mineral found in whole grains, nuts, beans and dark-green vegetables. It is significant in over 300 chemical reactions that help keep the body functioning the way it should. Magnesium is critical for many different purposes, including the right growth and maintenance of bone, maximum function of nerves and muscles, and for a strong immune system. It also is beneficial in maintaining heart rhythm, regulating blood sugar levels and promoting normal blood pressure.  It is responsible for energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Foods that are high in fiber are usually high in magnesium. Fiber is the indigestible part of plant foods that pushes through our digestive system, absorbing water during the process and making bowel movements easier. Magnesium is found in the two types of fiber—soluble and insoluble. Foods loaded with soluble fiber include oat bran, fruits, vegetables, brown rice, barley and nuts. Foods with an abundance of insoluble fiber include wheat bran and whole-grain breads and cereals.  The recommended dietary allowance for magnesium is 320 milligrams per day for women and 420 milligrams for men. Maintaining right dietary allowance of magnesium and other minerals is important to maintaining a healthy diet and a stable weight. Dr. StuartKincaid consults with some patientswho become frustrated after successfully maintaining a healthy diet and exercise plan, yet still are dissatisfied with their body contour. Some patients complain about thickness in the upper abdomen, on the outer thighs, and sides of the abdomen. These are areas that typically do not respond well to diet and exercise alone. Usually Dr. Stuart Kincaid will recommend liposuctionas an extremely effective way to target specific areas, removing the fat strategically and creating a better contour. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and provided the patient maintains a stable and healthy weight they can expect the results to last long-term.    Become a Fan on Facebook    Follow us on Twitter  More on Dr.Kincaid
