Sweet and Sour Pork

A classic Cantonese dish, Chef Ming’s Sweet and Sour Pork is perfection in color, aroma and taste! Simple to prepare with naturally tender and tasty Omega-3 pork, attendee’s are able to try this dish prepared 2 ways, with Omega-3 Pork Belly and with Omega-3 Baby Back Ribs.

 

What is Omega-3 Pork? How does it differ from ordinary pork in terms of taste and nutrition? Omega-3 Pork has 4 times more Omega-3 fatty acids compared to conventional pork. The high quality fat makes it quick to prepare and since it stays juicy and tender longer, cooking time is less critical. The consistent quality of Flodins pork means that the best results are always attainable, for each and every meal. Flodins raises their pigs on small, family owned farms and feeds them a completely natural diet of GMO-free corn mixed with locally grown rapeseed.

The Benefits of Omega-3’s

October 17, 2016

 

 

Omega-3’s are a part of a class of essential fatty acids needed for a healthy diet and can be found as a supplement or enjoyed in foods. One of the foods that you can find omega-3 in is Flodins premium pork, their pork has 4 times more Omega-3 fatty acids compared to conventional pork! Their award-winning Omega-3 pork is the result of 5 years’ extensive research in partnership with selected farmers and Finnish research institutes, including the Natural Resources Institute Finland and University of Helsinki. Here are some of the major benefits of adding omega-3 to your diet.

Raises Blood Triglycerides

Both exercise and diet have an impact on triglyceride levels in the blood. Triglyceride levels are important when you are trying to keep your body healthy, and control LDL cholesterol levels. LDL cholesterol is the type of cholesterol that is bad for the body, as high levels are one of the risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

 

Feeling Full

One of the best ways to stick with a diet is having the feeling of being full, which Omega-3 fats are able to help with. Appetite Magazine published a study that provided subjects a controlled diet that permitted subjects to have either more than 1,300 mg or less than 260 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per day for a 2 week period during an 8-week diet. The subjects with the larger dosage reported that they felt a lot less hungry after meals.

 

Burns Fat

There is also research showing that having adequate amounts of omega-3 in a diet increases the health benefits that come from regular exercise. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a study in which subjects were divided into four different groups. Each group received a combination of the following: sunflower oil, omega-3, sunflower oil with exercise, and omega-3 with exercise.

The people in the group with omega-3 with exercise were found to have lost the most amount of body fat and lowered their blood cholesterol more than all the other groups. The researchers of this study hypothesized that there is a synergistic effect between exercise and omega-3 that created more weight loss. This is likely due to a shift in the fat’s metabolism to decrease storage, and increase the oxidation of the fats.

 

Cognitive Performance

It has also been suggested that omega-3 plays a role in cognitive performance. People who take omega-3 will often show improved levels of energy and vigor.

There has been a lot of research done about Omega-3 and its benefits for a diet. Adding Omega-3 to your diet is as easy as buying Flodins Omega-3 Pork. The higher content of Omega-3 also makes the fat melt faster and be infused in the meat creating juicy, succulent pork meat.

The Oov Arrives in Asia

The pioneers in Pilates training and education, Polestar Pilates has introduced a new instrument for better training – the Oov. Polestar Pilates Asia brought the Oov to Asia during their 2016 Pilates Retreat in Malaysia. The retreat included a fantastic programme of workshops and master classes covering a wide range of Pilates teaching applications. The following highlights just some of the benefits and features the Oov provides.

Sessions often incorporate equipment to add variety and to add challenge to training and rehabilitation. The Oov has many benefits: The shape of the Oov is engineered to match the natural spinal curves of your body. Unlike a foam roller, the Oov is made from compliant foam so it is comfortable. Once a client is positioned on the Oov, they are essentially in what we refer to as a “neutral spine.”  The Oov is shaped to be an unstable surface. So while it “cradles your spine,” it also challenges your rotational stability, which is functional for many of our daily activities. It strengthens the spinal posture and alters the habitual and non-adaptive motion patterns of the clients.  More importantly, clients gain new awareness of these patterns which is a challenging aspect of our treatment paradigms. The Oov also promotes healthy posture, it’s designed to allow the shoulder blades to move freely while laying on it. We can train a client’s head, neck and shoulder alignment while challenging the neuromuscular system to recognize a new, healthy position of the spine.

Polestar Pilates cares for their instructors and clients alike and wants the best for them. Introducing the Oov adds a challenging new dimension to Pilates training, and many benefits for physical therapy and fitness clients alike. Follow us on Facebook, and watch for upcoming courses and programmes for the Oov around Asia.
