IS FOR PROTOX
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.”
