Common Breads Are Full With Chemicals Found In Yoga Mats. Choose The Healthier Alternative

Bread is brought into conversation mostly as the basic reason why people can’t lose weight. Grains from bread are not easily digested and can inhibit the efficacy of the pancreatic enzymes. Most forms of grains are not even healthy, but still people are over consuming them on a daily basis. A lot of ingredients, used in other products (for ex. azodicarbonamide – found in shoe rubber and yoga mats), are commonly used in bread also.

We all know that it takes only four ingredients to make bread – yeast, bread, salt and water. But, the bread industry is using much more, such as chemical bleach.

Healthier alternatives:

Sprouted grains – these grains are the healthy alternative to bread. Technically, they are vegetables. When we consume flour from refined grain, our bodies metabolize it as it metabolizes sugar. And that cause our insulin to spike, which can lead to weight gain, or even diabetes. So, the best is to avoid consuming bread made from flours. On the other way, sprouted grains fight diabetes, reduce risk of cardiovascular diseases and decrease the blood pressure.

Ancient grains – these grains are packed with nutrients. With them, we can make gluten-free bread. Ancient grains include: buckwheat, barley, quinoa, oats, millet and rye.
