|Reason For the general
consumption of the Panela
the organism has immunologic defenses against some attacks viral
and bacterial, this, on the contrary completely without protection
against the effects of the lack of vital elements. It is also unarmed
in front of the lack of vitamins, minerals, oligoelements, etc.
At the present time they have been developed, in alarming form,
certain called illnesses of the civilization". it is essentially
of the calls lacking illnesses" that have been generalized for the
gradual impoverishment of the modern, refined feeding and lacking
of nutritional substances as the organic salts, the vitamins, the
Until two centuries, fourth three parts
ago of the nutritious necessities of the Westerners they were covered
for the bread manufactured with integral flour, in the one which the
one still cribble was present. This bread has disappeared practically
in the modern feeding, today dominated by three products: white flour,
meat and refined sugar.
These foods provide the man of the enough caloric portion, but, unfortunately,
they don't fill the nutritional requirements. The effect of this deficit
is increased by a not very well-known fact: the assimilation of these
poor foods in vital substances, calls foods of empty calories, it
cannot be made but in the measure in that the organism compensates
it making use of its own reservations vital.
This way, the sugar, the oils and the refined flours. the same thing
that the alcohol, only provides calories, but when not contributing
vitamins neither minerals, makes that the human body consummates its
own elements and they are presented, then, the calls nutritional lacks."
This poverty of vital substances in the average feeding not it is
noticed immediately and alone we realize her when the organic vigor,
the self-defenses and the health are mined.
THE PANELA AND THE DENTAL CAVITY
The primary cavity is typically an illness lacking
and a true one lashes of the modern civilization. They are very sporadically
in the human remains of the antiquity and their development it dates
of about three hundred years ago, from the improvement of the industry
Today 98% of the human dentures of the developed countries you they
are attacked by this wrong. The primary cavity can be considered as
the symptom of a metabolic problem of nutritious origin that it attacks
the whole organism. The nutritional deficiencies that cause the cavity
is located preferential at the level of the hydrates of carbon.
The modern and refined foods lack necessary vital elements for the
physiologic use of the hydrates of carbon. The sugar refined it doesn't
contain the phosphates and the calcium, elements these that they are
part of the dental structure and at the same time they constitute
the cationes alkaline-potassium, magnesium, calcium that you/they
are capable of neutralizing the excessive acidity, one of the main
causes of the cavity.
The content of phosphates and calcium of the panela reaches it lauds
levels nutritional required. These elements are also indispensable
for the metabolism of the sucrose.
The doctor Max-Henri Béguin, medical
pediatrician of The Chaux-give-Fonds, in Switzerland, and the biggest
promoter in the consumption of panela among the infantile population,
has carried out interesting investigations among 2364 children of
4 to 10 years, during the understood period between 1968 and 1978,
and has found that among the children that only they consumed panela,
the incidence of the cavity was extremely low. According to the doctor
Béguin, the presence of the cavity is certain for the type of sugar
that the children consume, this way: 82% among those refined consumers
of sugar and candy.
51% among those that consume sugar moscabado and 9% among those that
they only used panela. The main victim of the cavity is the first
molar, which is formed in the infantile gum from the birth and it
ends up when mineralizing and maturity toward the two years of age.
Toward the 6 years, the boy is generally victim of the cavity, the
to mineralize complete of the denture it finishes around the 12 years.
Most of the teeth that present defects in their micro it structures,
due generally to metabolic dysfunctions, they will be attacked for
the cavity in the mature age. the investigations continued for the
Dr. Béguin has demonstrated that in the periods of rationing of the
refined products -as it happened during the last war - a great decrease
of the infantile dental cavity has been noticed.
He has also been that the isolated populations of the big ones urban
centers, and among the primitive calls, the cavity is strange.
The Dr. Béguin concludes: "the refined white sugar produces the cavity
dental. The panela prevents them when wastes away from the birth,
as only source of sugar". Also, so that the boy's health, so much
dental as integral, be really satisfactory, the prevention it should
be made from their gestation.
For this reason, the pediatricians should recommend the use of the
panela to the expectant mothers. The Dr. Béguin, besides their investigations
on the cavity, makes reference to interesting nutritional aspects
of the panela.
The high content in salts minerals of this natural product represents
a benefit for the harmonic development, so much of the body as gives
the infantile mind. The panela is very tolerated by the organism of
the one recently born. It avoids the formation of gases and it prevents
the constipación, due to their action slightly laxative.
The boy's development is made in gradual form,
with stable increases of weight and it carves - the cases are not
presented of gluttonous and hungry children that have been fed with
flours and refined sugars. With the panela, the boy reaches the nutritional
levels appropriate without exaggerating the nutritious quantity.
The iron that contains the panela prevents the anemia, since the contribution
of this element to the recently born one wastes away to the few months
and it should to provide him a rich feeding in assimilable iron so
that their hemoglobin level remains stable
magnesium fortifies of the nervous system, the children that have
a normal level of this element is more active, more vivacious.
T he potassium, indispensable in the cellular life, it maintains the
balance acid-basic and it combats the acidosis and the acetonuria.
The contained calcium in the panela helps to the formation of a better
one denture and of stronger bones, the mineral salts and the vitamins
they prevent the rachitis, and the panela water replaces advantageously
the vegetable juices and of fresh fruits.
The panela also help to strengthen the infant's immunologic system
and it prevents it of the illnesses of the breathing system and urinal,
also of the impetigo, the estomatitis, the moniliasis, etc.
The prevention of the cavity in the infant
also help to avoid the illnesses to articulate and especially the
osteoporosis of the mature age.
Investigations are making in Italy on the effect of the panela in
the sportsmen, in comparison with the sugar and the pure glucose,
because it has been observed that that it doesn't produce the depressions
hipoglicémicas of these other foods.
In Colombia, many doctors use the powder of the panela in the wounds
and burns to accelerate the scaring process and still to protect against
