IS FOR PROTOX

Harper’s Bazaar (Australia) - - Health -

With so many hyp­ing high-pro­tein/low-carb di­ets th­ese days, meat of­ten be­comes the ‘star’ on our plate. A lit­tle is good, so more has got to be bet­ter, right? Wrong … which is why protox is such a buzz word right now. For some, protox refers to the char­ring of meat cre­at­ing ox­ida­tive mol­e­cules that trig­ger in­flam­ma­tion. For oth­ers, protox means calling time-out on an­i­mal pro­tein and up­ping your in­take of plant pro­teins. How­ever, it’s not that straight­for­ward — es­pe­cially dur­ing men­stru­a­tion. “Red meat gives women their most ef­fi­cient bio-avail­able lev­els of iron and vi­ta­min B12, let alone com­plete pro­tein, which is chal­leng­ing to achieve with veg­eta­bles alone,” says Syd­ney-based celebrity natur­opath David Ji­van.“eat meat, but take care. Stir fry it, dry bake it or even eat it raw like sashimi.the law of mod­er­a­tion ap­plies.”
