The Best Tasting Canned Fish

The Best Tasting Canned Fish

Fish are one of the best tasting, and nutritious snack foods. Canned fish are a convenient snack. It’s filling, and doesn’t feel heavy on your stomach. Many types of fish have been unfairly slandered by government agencies because of their supposedly high levels of mercury. Heavy metals are a concern in larger fish, such as sharks. It’s not a concern for small fish, which are available in most grocery stores. Smaller fish, such as sardines, mackerel, anchovies, and salmon are extremely nutrient-dense. Minerals, such as selenium and iodine, are needed to detoxify toxins such as mercury. So don’t feel ashamed to eat fish!

Many people say they don’t like fish. This is because they’ve tasted the cheap grocery store brands of sardines or tuna.

“I don’t like fish”

Everyone who has tasted discount-store sardines.

Best fish for snacking, or camping trips

When I’m traveling and need a quick meal, I bring along a few cans of herring or mackerel. Most grocery stores have King Oscar brands. The Lemon or Mediterranean flavor are always in my travel bag. They cost about $2.75 per can. King Oscar Mackerel is my favorite herring among the grocery store brands.

Polar or Bar Harbor brands are available at most grocery stores. The herring in mustard sauce is delicious, but hard to find.

“Kippers” are a popular snack in some regions. Kipper is a boneless fillet of herring, and a favorite in England.

Olive oil or water

Several brands claim to use extra virgin olive oil. In almost every case, this is an outright lie. Olive oil is too expensive to be used in industry. Most brands use cheap seed oils, with maybe a tiny bit of olive oil for flavor. It’s possible that some of the natural fish oils will be diluted by the oil, but I haven’t confirmed this.

The best tuna

Tuna is usually used to make tuna salad. Try to get Albacore tuna. Some of the larger fish can have higher levels of mercury, and honestly, they don’t taste as good anyway.

The Cento brand of Tuna is the only one I’ve found that can be eaten all by itself, straight out of the can. It’s that good.

The Wal-Mart brand of Albacore tuna has a firm texture, and makes a good Tuna Salad. The Wild Planet is similar.

Like most $.99 per can brands, StarKist tuna tastes slightly better than dog food. Gourmet dog food, perhaps.


Canned sardines have a “fishy” flavor. Even the expensive brands. If you don’t like the flavor, then stay away from sardines. Season and King Oscar brands are relatively mild.

Costco carries the Season brand of sardines. These taste great, and have a mild taste. However, I don’t like to buy skinless/boneless fish, because the skin and bones are great sources of nutrients, such as essential fats and calcium.

High Blood Pressure – Does it have a nutritional cause?

High Blood Pressure – Does it have a nutritional cause?

Dr Mark Houston: Neo40 nitric oxide booster, arterocil is a glycocalix builder, whey protein, and CoQ10, mag chelates.

In the last few years, I’ve talked to a few people who had elevated blood pressure, with an unknown cause. Typically, we think of high blood pressure as being associated with heart disease or insulin resistance, typically in an older person. When someone has athleroschlerosis the artery walls become stiff and no longer able to produce nitric oxide. These were younger, heathy people. They had both been checked out by doctors, and had not found a definite cause for their hypertension.

Inflammation can raise blood pressure. This is why when you’re sick, your blood pressure might go up a little bit. This is only mild and temporary. I’m talking about long term elevated blood pressure.

One condition that sometimes gets overlooked is IgA nephropathy. This is a condition in which immunoglobulins (a type of immune cells) get tangled up and form large immune complexes that get stuck in the glomerulus of the kidney, and result in high blood pressure. Usually this will result in protein and blood in the urine, and this will also be diagnosed with a urinalysis. IgA nephropathy is considered to be a genetic disease. There is definitely a genetic component, because there’s a missing amino acid in the IgA molecule, but there’s some research showing that it could be related to a food allergy.

There are genetics in the nitric oxide synthase gene that predispose to high blood pressure. This could be partly be corrected by arginine supplementation.

Also, consider if sleep apnea could be an issue. I met a guy who had high blood pressure for many years, along with an abnormal heart rhythm, and for decades he never got a proper diagnosis, except that the doctor told him that he needed to take blood pressure medications. After he got treatment for sleep apnea, the blood pressure normalized, and he had a normal heart rhythm. The sleep apnea was probably resulting in loss of sodium, which was causing blood pressure to go up.

If you’re a mouth breather, or if you sleep with your mouth open, this is a serious concern. We’re designed to breathe mostly through our nose. Mouth breathing will result in improper oxygenation of tissues, and ……………….

Chronic sinus infections can made it difficult to breathe through the nose. Often it’s the result of improper posture. There are treatments for this. Look up videos or podcasts that describe mouth taping, or other therapies for mouth breathing.

Another thing that can cause high blood pressure is mineral deficiencies. If you’re not consuming enough salt, low sodium will cause an activation of stress hormones which cause blood pressure to go up. Most of us need to be getting much more salt in our diet. Our kidneys spend a lot of energy to reabsorb sodium. Consuming more sodium will increase blood volume, and this is a good thing, but it can cause problems if sodium is out of balance with other minerals.

Inadequate intake of minerals, including trace minerals, is very common. This is partly because we don’t consume enough mineral rich foods. Obviously, agriculture has changed a lot in recent years, with soils being depleted of minerals. Even 100 years ago, scientists were lamenting the fact that farmland was being depleted, and we were losing topsoil, and obviously it’s much worse now. We need to be more proactive in making sure we’re not deficient. Insulin resistance or inflammatory conditions can result in excessive losses of magnesium and potassium. It’s possible to test for vitamin and mineral deficiencies, but they testing is quite expensive, and I haven’t done enough of them to have confidence in the results. Hair mineral analysis would be a good option to evaluate mineral status.

The single best source of minerals is from meat and meat products, for example, homemade bone broths. Even if people are eating meat, what are they eating it with? Typically we eat meat along with bread, or other cereal grains. This is a huge problem. Grains and seeds are extremely high in phytates. Phytate, or phytic acid, is made by plants as a way of holding onto minerals, until the seed is ready to germinate. Traditionally grains have always undergone a special preparation method before cooking. For example, bread dough would be fermented to produce “sour dough” bread. We think of sourdough bread as being a flavor, but it’s actually an very old tradition of making bread more digestible. Native Americans would soak nuts and seeds for several days before consuming. “Maza” or cornmeal has to go through a certain process to make tryptophan more digestible, and it’s actually a method of fermentation. Grains also contain the phytase enzyme that breaks down phytic acid, but modern store-bought bread and cereals are made in high-temperature, high-speed production methods, which destroys phytase, and leaves very high levels of phytic acid.

So how do we survive eating modern processed foods? Well, our stomach produces enzymes to deal with plant starches, even though store-bought bread from modern species of wheat has protease and amalase inhibitors that make it harder to digest.

Most of the deactivation of phytates is done by our own intestinal bacteria. So someone who has excellent digestion could probably do fine eating it, but most of us don’t. Perhaps it would make sense to use a probiotic, and take some digestive enzymes. It’s also best to avoid store-bought breads. I encourage everyone, if you eat bread, to make it yourself, and start making bone broth from scratch, and take mineral supplements, especially magnesium. And salt your food to taste. If you crave salt, you probably need more salt.

If you want to learn more about mineral intake, and it’s relationship to blood pressure I’ll link to some books and articles

¿Plaquenol protege contra Covid-19?

¿Plaquenol protege contra Covid-19?

El presidente Trump promovió un protocolo que involucra sulfato de zinc, azitromicina e hidrocloroquina (Plaquenol) basado en la recomendación del Dr. Zelenko, un profesional que utilizó este protocolo con pacientes con Covid-19 en Nueva York.

El Dr. Zelenko desarrolló este protocolo basado en el hecho de que:

  1. El zinc interfiere con la replicación del ARN viral dentro de las células.
  2. La hidrocloroquina ayuda al zinc a atravesar la membrana celular.
  3. El antibiótico reducirá el riesgo de infecciones secundarias.

Este protocolo no se ha probado con estudios científicos, pero hay informes anecdóticos de que mejora los resultados de los pacientes, incluso del propio Dr. Zelenko.

Además de ralentizar la replicación viral, el zinc también es un fuerte estimulante del sistema inmune innato. La falta de zinc disminuirá la actividad de los macrófagos, las células asesinas naturales, los neutrófilos y reducirá la glándula del timo. Las personas mayores con frecuencia no obtienen suficiente zinc, ya sea porque no comen lo suficiente o porque carecen de ácido estomacal para absorberlo adecuadamente.

El protocolo del Dr. Zelenko ha sido cuestionado por un estudio retrospectivo que analiza pacientes en hospitales de veteranos. Este grupo de estudio incluyó un grupo de solo hidrocloroquina, hidrocloroquina + azitromicina, y un placebo. Los resultados fueron que:
“… no encontramos evidencia de que el uso de hidroxicloroquina, con o sin azitromicina, redujera el riesgo de ventilación mecánica en pacientes hospitalizados con Covid-19. Se identificó una asociación de aumento de la mortalidad general en pacientes tratados con hidroxicloroquina sola”. El fracaso del protocolo del Dr. Zelenko se ha vuelto “viral” en las noticias.

¿Has notado lo que falta? ¡No hay mención de zinc! No usaron zinc en su protocolo, y ni siquiera evaluaron sus niveles sanguíneos de zinc.

¿Por qué, en una población que probablemente tenga deficiencia de zinc (y probablemente también carezca de otros nutrientes), no se consideraría esto una parte esencial de este protocolo?…/10…/2020.04.16.20065920v1.full.pdf
