Introduction

Oils or fats provide twice the energy requirements in the foodstuff to the value of 8 calories per 1g, instead of 4 calories as found in protein and carbohydrates. Oils are found in seeds, nuts, and fish; while you get fats from butter, milk, and egg yolk. Oils are liquids, fats are solids as seen in egg yolks at room temperature and pressure.

They contained bone nourishing elements like calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and others that in combination will synergies the maximum assimilation or absorption of more than one mineral matter to promote muscle, bone, and joint health. Supplements exist in capsule form, but natural organic forms are expensive.

These mineral elements are found in nuts and seeds, and legumes, such as groundnuts, coconuts, and soybean, are much better and cheaper to get. It is best you combined two foods from both vegetable and animal sources for maximum benefits.

Dr. Mercola is a noted physician on natural health. He noted that oils from seeds and nuts are medium-chain-triglycerides, MCT. And, that 'increased energy level and improved athletic performance' is listed as health benefits. Hence, by consuming these food items regularly, your muscles, bones, and joints are nourished and will improve healthily.

Furthermore, atherosclerosis is a disease he opined that MCT oils are combating effectively. Hence, he regards and advocates the consumption of 'organic, virgin, and, unrefined' oils as 'health foods'.

Best Organic Oils and Fats for Muscle, Bone and Joint Health

As a fitness enthusiast, have you ever wondered about the type of organic food oils or fats fit for your muscle, bone, and joint health? Not all oils or fats, animal or vegetable can be right for your muscles and joints. Eating the right type is more beneficial.

Oils are a unique class of food that delivers twice the amount of energy found in carbohydrates and proteins. They also contain fatty acids both good and bad. To begin with, let’s answer this question: what food oils or fats are necessary and essential for your muscle, bone, and joint health?

The answer can be somehow confusing. But you can be assured that oils in nature are always so good. But not all oils are good for the body. Oils can help nourish your joint and muscles.

Here we will concern ourselves with healthy oils or fats for muscle, bone, and joint health. We start from the vegetable list of foodstuff, for human beings still hardly realized being a vegetarian.

Avocado is an excellent fruit for muscle and bone health

'Avocado are also excellent sources of minerals like iron, copper, magnesium, and manganese. Magnesium is essential for bone strengthening and has a cardiac-protective role as well'.-Dr. Mercola

Avocado Pear

Avocado is on top of the list of vegetable fats. Most authorities consider it to be the number one vegetable fat. The average avocado contains the best 48% fat.

Eating avocado alone hardly benefits the body. But you should eat it in combination with other food items like whole wheat bread, rice, bean, and citrus fruits. You can eat it with any food. You benefit much, muscle plus heart health. And, remember the heart is a muscle.

Arthritis is a disease of the bones. A specific symptom is an osteoarthritis. Avocado oil in combination with soybean oil helps relieve the illness.

The fat content is unsaturated so its omega -3 fatty acids deliver heart health. It is a high monounsaturated oleic acid that is comparable to olive oil.

Depending on your age, body mass index (BMI), exercise intensity, and metabolic rate, you need one whole avocado after your workout to go with your meat or fish chop. Two or three pieces is enough for a week, each piece is for the day of exercise. Potassium is found in avocado and is responsible for reduced blood pressure. This has a healthy effect on the heart.

Organic Groundnuts

Nuts are polyunsaturated oils. Their oils are liquids at room temperature and pressure. Their hardly become solids unless on converting to other foods.

Many bad things have been said about nuts. Some say these little punches are fatling pointing fingers peculiarly at peanuts in particular. I think if you are a sedentary person, eating half a cup of peanuts regularly once a day during every meal, you fit into the fat club.

I do know some ladies who did this and got extremely fat and now have a high blood pressure challenge. I have tested this and found it to be true. It is the carbohydrate contents in the nuts that did the trick and not the oil or fats. I have also tested this as an exercise enthusiast and find it real.

However, the energy released is delivered into my muscles. Peanuts or groundnuts contain manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus that will help calcium to be absorbed and this promotes joint, muscle and bone health.

After every exercise of 30 minutes, you can munch half a cup of the peanuts nearly or half done. In this state, it delivers much of the health benefits.

Some authorities say you should eat only 17 to 27 pieces of the nuts on health ground, which is up to a handful. This may be good for sedentary persons.

A jogger like me needs much more than this amount. Before or after jogging a mile from and to, do you think a handful of peanuts or any other nuts like 20 pieces cashew nuts or walnuts is sufficient for me? I doubt it. Unless one is on a weight reduction program, such measures are not sufficient enough.

I eat between half a cup (a cup is 100g) of peanuts along with other food items and rest for 3 hours before jogging for a mile. Think of the amount of energy I give out during the slow leisurely run (and this has to be replaced) or jogging to go for a mile and back!

And on the whole of this, a cup 100g of peanuts delivers:

Carbohydrates.......................31g or 124calories

Oil………………………………………...72g or 576 calories

Protein…………………………………36g or 144 calories

This in all is 844 calories! Notice the calorie value of the oil alone. Think of the energy to rest, relax, sleep and work and so on after the jog. All these have to be taken into account or you will be doing your body great harm.

Other nuts like cashew nut, can power your muscles like peanuts, and because of their polyunsaturated states, profit your heart.

Organic Soybean

Beans have polyunsaturated oils. Soya bean has a higher content of oils than most beans. That of the white bean is low, but the oil of any bean will deliver health and well being to your muscles. Add some beans meal as a side dish to most of your vegetable, fish or meat chops. Bean also deliver omega -3 fatty acid and may benefit not only your muscles and joints but your heart health.

The only bad thing about bean is that it is gas forming in the intestinal tract. I have experienced this when I begin to chop bean daily. However, this is overcome by including roasted garlic lobe in the meal. Two lobes are enough for a plate of the bean. Best of all, bean, when cooked and left overnight increased its nutritional value, palatable and help reduce gas forming in the belly.

Coconut Meat

Coconut is the worst of the fruits spoken about by health authorities. Due to its many fat contents, it is regarded as a cause of heart disease. However, according to Dr.Mercola, it is a medium-chain-triglyceride compound. Lauric acid is the most important fat coconut meat provides.

Again, Dr. Mercola said that coconut meat is rich in vitamins, minerals, and calories. It enables the body to absorb magnesium and calcium essential for bone health. Weekly eating of fruit especially by the elderly will prevent the formation of osteoporosis. Dr. Mercola, held it the meat prevents the formation of atherosclerosis.

Coconut meat can be prepared to treat rice meal or coconut rice and gives the rice an appealing nice and flavor taste.

Eat Saturate Fats

Fish Oil

Fish oil is high on the list of animal fats. Fish are cold-blooded. Due to their omega -3, and -6 fatty acids, fish oil benefits the muscles and especially the heart, which is one of the most important muscles of the body.

Fish oil is liquid at room temperature and pressure. They are polyunsaturated and contain no cholesterol. Here they befriend your heart much better than any animal products.

As a person who is regular on weekly workouts, eat fish regularly. It is said one should eat a minimum of 3 oz of fish two or three times a week. It all depends on your calorie needs. But you are much better off if you eat some fish every day in their varieties, and not just weekly.

Varied your fish food. Eat mullets, sardines, tuna, cod, and eel skippers. Fish or kinds of seafood will include shrimp, lobster, crabs, and so on.

I like sardines and mullets very much on my chop plates. These two spices are very heart friendly due to their omega -3 fatty acid contents.

At times I extract their fresh oils (for I am a fisherman) and dress my bread with them instead of avocado or butter.

In addition, soft bones of sardines and mullets are a good source of calcium salt. The bones of mullets when the fish is preserved with peanut oil for over three days get softened as sardine and are easily absorbed into the bloodstream.

You can eat fish with any food. You can even enjoy it over a cup of tea or a glass of wine or juice along with a handful of peanuts.

The protein of fish is more satiating than any animal or bird protein. Fish contained up to 18 amino acids.

Red Meat from Organic Grazing Cows

Be sure to include a generous portion in your chops. But the fats of meats have one demerit. It has cholesterol. Although this is good to a limited degree, you should buy your meat cut along with bone marrow. These soft bones offer calcium that is easily absorbed by the body in the bloodstream. In addition, the blood cells are contained in the bone marrow.

The fat of red meat is easily digested to release energy and can help you gain muscular weight.

Another bad thing about red meat is that it degenerates bone health. This should not happen to anyone who regularly takes up their physical exercise two or three times a week. If you execute your plyometrics exercises weekly or you jog weekly, the better for you. Osteoporosis or loss of bone is more common with sedentary persons past middle age even if they do not eat meat.

Normally, red meat from organic husbandry that is fed from grazing and receives enough sunshine did not carry many polyunsaturated fats. It is red meat from inorganic farms that you have to be very cautious and worry about.

Fresh Organic Eggs

Eggs have both good and bad cholesterol. However, they are important for your muscles. Remember your heart is a muscle. The bad cholesterol contains saturated fats and this is easily taken care of by many good fats (oils) from nuts, seeds, vegetables, and fruits.

Egg fats contain omega -3 fatty acids or good fat. Eating too much egg means too many polyunsaturated will be deposited in the bloodstream, which is bad even for a keep-fit enthusiast.

Two or three eggs, two times in the week is alright for you. Say you eat two eggs on two different days. The math is that you eat four eggs in the week, right? And be sure to eat them with some handful of nuts especially, peanuts that have many polyunsaturated fats or oils. This will take care of the bad fats in the egg.

Whey or Casein Milk

Milk is ideally good for the bones. It contains calcium and is easily absorbed after digestion. Nature designed cow’s milk to make baby cows grow well and strong. Cow’s milk contains all the essential amino acids. It has dairy protein casein and whey, which helps in muscle repair and growth. So, you can add milk to your daily meals like tea, coffee, cocoa, custard, and oats. This will help build lean muscles.

The most vital nutritional content of milk essential for bone and muscle health are:

  • Calcium is necessary for muscle contraction.
  • Choline is vital for muscle movement.
  • Potassium, protect against loss of muscle mass.
  • Vitamin D, for bone health.

Milk does not contain vitamin D. But it is added as a supplement.

Serving Portion of Food

The serving or portion of food to eat differs for individuals. It will depend more on age, weight, exercise, physical activity, eating habits, metabolic rate, and so on. On the whole, the more energy you give out, you have to take in the equivalent amount; plus more to maintain other needs, like repair of tissues, digestion, sleep, and so on.

Hence, I can eat a serving of two cups of avocados today if I am very hungry due to physical exertion, via exercise. But at odd times I eat just one cup. It all depends on each person’s needs.

Conclusion

Varied your intake of fats, and oils regularly with vegetable and animal sources. They delivered the essential nutrients for the muscles, joints, and bones, including omega -3, and -6 fatty acids. A doctor can recommend these nutrients in a capsule form if you are deficient. This ensures optimal health for your muscles, joints, and bones.
