    Subject: Natural home remedies for Burns





    In an emergency, there are some home remedies that can help mitigate the effects of burns. The first step is always to cool the burn by running it under cool water for at least 10 minutes. Aloe Vera can be applied to burns to help promote quicker healing and control inflammation. Bathing in oatmeal can help to reduce itching, especially when the burn begins to heal. Raw honey may also have antibacterial properties, while the tannins in witch hazel can reduce swelling and help repair your skin.

    Key Takeaways:

    • When one has burns and injuries, they should be treated and given full attention quickly and immediately otherwise there is the risk of infections.
    • The first treatment to give to a burned area is to cool the wound under running water for ten to fifteen minutes.
    • Aloe vera is good for treating burns. It acts as a natural remedy and can easily be found because it can be grown indoors in pots.

    "The injured skin is traumatized and using ice on the patient’s skin will constrict blood vessels and decrease blood circulation to an area that desperately needs it."

    Matcha is a powdered form of green tea derived from the Camelia sinensis plant and prized for its health benefits. Matcha is full of antioxidants and catechism that can help protect the health of your heart and arteries while keeping your cholesterol in check. Several clinical trials in both elderly people and the general population suggest that matcha can improve cognitive functioning. Matcha can also help you to lose weight by accelerating the rate at which your body burns calories.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Although matcha tea is derived from,the same source as green tea, matcha tea is processed literally into a powder, which is what the name of the tea means.
    • Inflammation and oxidative stress, triggered by free radicals in the body, is significantly minimized by matcha tea, because it contains EGCG.
    • A 2014 University study used elderly participants to show that three months of regular consumption of matcha tea boosted the elderly participant's brain power.

    "Matcha can even support a stable metabolism, keep the mind sharp and lift the mood, and purge toxins from the body."

    Subject: Prepping basics: 5 Effective natural remedies for ulcers





    Peptic ulcers occur when an individual's digestive juices cause damage to the walls of the intestines or stomach. Usually, peptic ulcers are caused by H. pylori, a bacteria that causes inflammation in the digestive tract. Burning pain is the most commonly known symptom of a peptic ulcer. Other symptoms include belching, heartburn, bloating, nausea, and weight loss. Aloe vera taken orally is one natural remedy for ulcers. Cabbage juice, chamomile, and honey also all fight peptic ulcers without the negative side effects of medication. While ulcers are usually just irritating, they will become debilitating if left untreated.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Although ulcers can occur anywhere on the body, they are especially common along the digestive tract.
    • Peptic ulcers occur in the stomach and intestines as a result of digestive juices damaging the lining.
    • Aloe vera, which is used topically for burns and infections, can be used internally to treat ulcers.

    "Ulcers are common, and how they appear and their corresponding symptoms depend on their cause and where they develop on your body."

    The aloe vera plant has long been used for its medicinal purposes but now there is a new way to enjoy the amazing benefits this plant has to offer. Have you had your aloe vera juice for the day? If not, it's time to pour a nice glassfull. Drinking aloe vera juice offers a slew of health benefits, which include high levels of vitamin C that the body needs, prevents and cures constipation, and so much more.

    Key Takeaways:

    • The green, gel-filled leaves of aloe vera has many uses which includes using it to treat burns and wounds.
    • Aloe vera juice can be used to treat cases of constipation. This is because the plant contains compounds called anthraquinones that have a laxative effect.
    • Although researchers can attest to the use of aloe vera juice for laxative purposes, the FDA has not yet approved this procedure.

    "Vitamin C has a variety of specific benefits, from reducing a person's risk of cardiovascular disease to improving immune system function. Getting enough vitamin C also enhances the body's ability to absorb iron from plant-based foods."

But these are not the only plants you have available: the oils of rose geranium, myrrh, eucalyptus and helichrysum are also helpful for cuts and burns.

    Key Takeaways:

    • If you are suffering from something like this, make sure to take care of it.
    • A small little slit in your skin can actually be something more serious if you do not take care of it.
    • It is interesting to see the effects of these things when using them on certain people.

    Common Herbs to Help Soothe Constipation

    About a fifth of Americans suffer from the discomfort of constipation, but luckily there are several natural remedies for this common nuisance. Constipation happens when either food moves too slowly through your system, or the colon sucks too much of the water content out of waste as it passes through. Slippery elm can both soothe and lubricate the digestive tract. Aloe can likewise both help constipation and help soothe other digestive problems. Fenugreek is both an effective constipation remedy and a tasty spice.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Constipation can be caused by many factors, such as not getting enough fiber in your diet, stress, and not drinking enough fluids.
    • Slippery elm is a soothing elm that can help relieve stomach pain and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome in addition to relieving constipation.
    • Aloe vera is best known as a plant that relieves sunburns, but it is also a natural laxative.

    "If you have trouble going to the restroom regularly, don’t worry because this can be easily remedied by knowing what’s making you constipated and implementing a few herbs in your diet that are specifically used to help relieve constipation."

    Drinking chilled yerba mate can help you achieve your weight loss goals

    Consuming chilled yerba mate can enable humans to burn over 50% more calories than they would without drinking it! This boost in energy expenditure not only relates to more fat loss, but it also helps regulate and improve the cardiovascular system. A study that included 23 participants concluded these findings, showing just how beneficial the consumption of chilled yerba mate is much more useful to the body than simply consuming hot varieties of herbal teas.

    Key Takeaways:

    • A drink needs to reach your body's natural temperature in order to digest it as is. When something is colder, it burns energy while digesting the product.
    • Not only can yerba mate help decrease body fat when you have it cold, but it also contains much less sugar than other tea drinks.
    • The antioxidant properties that are present within yerba mate will still be contained when it is in a chilled form.

    "Data from the study showed that iced yerba mate tea produced over 50 percent more energy expenditure, or calorie burning, versus hot tea, or 8.3 percent compared to 3.7 percent."

    Make an INFORMED decision: Everything you need to know about colloidal silver

    There is a rich history that goes back for centuries, associating the use of colloidal silver with the treatment of wounds and various illnesses. Today, the FDA does not acknowledge the use of colloidal silver as medicinal, calling assertions by practitioners and users as "unfounded."

    Nonetheless, many practitioners and users have found the substance to be of high value, particularly in the treatment of wounds, burns, cuts and infections. Colloidal silver is deemed to be both antiseptic and antimicrobial. Neither is colloidal silver associated with any serious side effects, save one. Unfortunately, the 'one' is a doozy and responsible for much of the foot-dragging, when it comes to accepting colloidal silver.

    It seems that it is possible to have the skin turn blue, a condition called, "argyria," with the taking in of too much colloidal silver. However, although the condition is real and not reversible, it is also highly unlikely, considering the normal dose users ingest of colloidal silver is one teaspoon and that dose would have to go up to 48 teaspoons every day, for an entire year to possibly have enough in the system to develop argyria.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Colloidal silver has a long, rich history as a treatment for wounds, burns, cuts, sprains and infections.
    • Colloidal silver's benefits, which have been observed by both practitioners and users, are undoubtedly the result of its being both antiseptic and antimicrobial.
    • The normal recommended dose used by those that ingest colloidal silver is one single teaspoon, which is far to small an amount to develop argyria, a rare side effect.

    "There are are a number of misconceptions about colloidal silver being spread around as “truth,” while the facts regarding its uses and benefits are being obscured — as is the case for so many alternative treatments these days."

    Try These 5 Tricks To Speed Up Your Metabolism Naturally

    The best way to lose weight (and keep it off!) is not to spend time and money on trendy dietary fads, or on extreme crash diets, but to try to harness the natural power of your metabolism to burn off weight. Getting enough sleep, adding interval exercises to prevent overly repetitive workout routines, eating wholesome, organic, unprocessed foods and drinking plenty of water and green tea can all help you to boost the rate at which your metabolism burns off fat.

    Key Takeaways:

    • By building more muscle you will naturally increase your metabolism due to muscles burning calories faster than fat.
    • If your body is dehydrated, your body will have an average two percent decline in its metabolism.
    • Those who do not get enough sleep have a higher body mass index due to the impact it can have on your metabolism.

    "Involving many chemical processes, your metabolism is much more than a mechanism you can tweak. It is required to sustain life, as these processes occur in each and every call. Helping you turn the food you eat into usable fuel, your resting metabolism is what accounts for most of the energy you burn."

    For all you vegans out there what if I told you being a vegan may give you the ability to heal faster? Sounds crazy I know but recently a once vegan man survived a brutal plane crash. There is no proof of this but some researches and scientist believe this may be true.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Only two people survived on September 19, 2008, celebrity disc jockey DJ AM and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, when a plane attempting to takeoff from the Columbia Metropolitan Airport in South Carolina had blown a tire and were unable to stop the plane on the remaining runway.
    • Travis Barker, a vegan at the time, suffered second- and third-degree Burns over his torso and lower body. He was taken to the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia, where, he told the Guardian in an interview several weeks after the crash, he had to eat 6,000 calories a day in order to speed his recovery.
    • Giving up veganism, in this case, came with an added health benefit: Early in his hospital stay, his doctors reportedly had trouble getting his skin grafts to take, which Barker said in interviews was due to his low levels of protein; after a while on his new high-calorie diet, they had more success.

    "The pilots, who thought that they had blown a tire, were unable to stop the plane on the remaining runway they had left."

    A recent study at the University of Southampton is proposing the use of honey to prevent microbiological biofilms from developing within catheters. Their research has shown promising results. They were able to use this natural substance to stop E. coli and Proteus mirabilis bacteria from clustering together as in normal catheters. While the research is far from human trials, this would be an alternative welcomed by those who prefer all natural substances. However, that doesn’t mean it will be as effective as current antimicrobials.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Patients often have a catheter fitted, either to drain urine stuck in the bladder or to monitor urine output.
    • In theory, a honey solution might be useful for flushing urinary catheters to keep them clean while they remain in the bladder.
    • Honey has been used for centuries as a natural antiseptic. People have used it to treat Burns and wounds and many companies now sell a range of "medical grade" honey products that comply with regulatory standards.

    Subject: Sooth Diverticulitis Marshmallow Root

    Diverticulosis occurs when pouches form along the wall of the gastrointestinal wall, especially in the colon. Diverticulitis refers to the inflammation or infection of the pouches. The cause of diverticulosis is not yet clear, but medical experts suggest that it may result from the lack of sufficient fiber in the body. Due to insufficient fiber, the colon has to strain to push its contents forward, the pressure from the strain results in weak spots in the colon wall. The bacterial growth in the weak spots is thought to be the cause of the inflammation and infection.

    Management of Diverticulitis with Marshmallow Root

    Marshmallow root is obtained from Althaea Officinalis. It has both demulcent and emollient effects. The herbal remedy works by gelling and soothing the inflammation experienced in the colon wall.

    Marshmallow root also has several other health benefits including:

    1. It is used in the management of respiratory conditions such as asthma and bronchitis.
    2. It is used for external topical applications due to its anti-inflammatory effects. Several skin conditions such as Burns boils and other skin irritations can be managed using the herb.
    3. It is employed in the formulation of beauty products such as cosmetics. It is also included in shampoos due to its ability to detangle hair.

    Inflammation Pain Got You Down? EPA Fish Oil Can Help
    TopPreviousNext

    Date: October 12, 2015 12:55 AM
    Author: Darrell Miller
    Subject: Inflammation Pain Got You Down? EPA Fish Oil Can Help

    There's absolutely no doubt as to whether fish oil contains anti-inflammatory benefits. The main question is how one can tap into these benefits. How fish oil helps in inflammation pain is well understood. Basically, fish oil contains EPA and DHA which are Omega 3 fatty acids. Our body cannot make these essential fats on its own, and it's therefore important to have them in included in the diet just like other minerals and vitamins.


    Effects of Inflammation Pain
    There are many case studies that have been published to demonstrate the anti-inflammatory activity of EPA-rich fish oil. Inflammation is generally a response that our body uses to respond to any tissue injury or infections. These inflammatory processes have recently been understood as the underlying causes of many diseases of the modern world including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis, Alzheimer's disease, degenerative disc disease and many more.

    Fish oil has shown to have potential benefits to all these diseases, but the main question is how one substance could help so many different conditions. However, fish oil contains essential omega 3 fats that benefit a wide variety of health conditions, either related or caused by inflammation.


    How EPA helps inflammation

    EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) is an omega 3 fatty acid present in fish oil and is used by the body as a building block for manufacturing a group of chemicals with anti-inflammatory effects. This simply means that EPA acts as the fuel for the ability of our body to make its own anti-inflammatory chemicals. Scientists and nutritionists have shown that our modern diet is deficient in these omega 3 fatty acids. They also suggest that this may serve as an explanation of the current epidemic of inflammatory pain related illnesses that are being experienced in most western countries.


    EPA fish oil dosage

    In order to achieve significant anti-inflammatory effects, you must take a large daily dose of EPA-rich fish oils. One study has shown that patients suffering from disabling pain are able to achieve a significant pain relief that could not be helped by prescriptive pain medications, after taking high doses of fish oil for a prolonged period of time. In this study, all the patients had suffered severe disabling pain that could not be relieved through prescriptive pain medications. The pain was caused by something different in each of the cases.

    One of the patients had second and third-degree Burns over large parts of his body and was still experiencing pain despite taking morphine. Another patient had suffered a disc herniation in his neck. In all these cases, patients experienced significant relief after taking high doses of EPA fish oils and were able to return to their normal daily living. The fish oil daily dosage included 3200 mg to 7000 mg of EPA and DHA combined.


    Assessing your need for omega 3

    The expected results from taking fish oil largely depend on your current intake of omega 3 fats. If your body is currently depleted on omega 3 fats, it will certainly take much longer before it reaches the optimal levels of omega 3 and to achieve the full benefits of EPA. To determine your current omega 3 status, a simple blood test can measure your Omega-Index.

    Subject: Can Argan Oil Help My Skin Look Younger?

    Argan oil has risen to become a very important component when it comes to skin care. The trick lies in its composition. Unlike other products in the same class, it has a very unique composition. This oil has sterols, polyphenols, carotenoids, natural antioxidants and not forgetting essential fatty acids.

    Argan Oil

    Below are some of the skin problems that can be cured by Argan oil:

    • Sunburn

    Sunburn refers to dry scaly skin condition as a result of being exposed to intense sunshine. Argan oil is high in vitamin E content which plays a very big role in curing this condition. It helps prevent sunBurns due to its moisturizing ability. However, in cases where the sunburn has already occurred it can be used to treat the condition. Due to this particular quality; vitamin E has been linked to preventing skin cancer.

    • Wrinkles and appearance of fine lines on the skin

    As people age, the skin tends to lose its elasticity quality and as such wrinkles begin to appear. However, this oil helps to prevent and/or cure this problem. It does this by rehydrating the skin, hence restoring the skin’s natural elasticity properties.

    • Psoriasis

    Psoriasis is a disease that affects the skin. Its main symptoms are appearance of red patches on the skin covered with scales. The compounds present in argan oil help alleviate the problem through nourishing it with essential nutrients. As a result it helps the skin retain moisture, effectively treating the condition.

    • Razor bumps and Burns

    Have you ever experienced rashes that arise due to after-shave? This condition is very common in men after shaving as well as women after shaving their legs and/or bikini lines. These bumps are very uncomfortable and unsightly. Argan oil has been proven to heal this condition.


    Regular use of argan oil is not just for cosmetic purposes, but majorly for the general health of the skin. Its many unique natural compounds do not only preserve and soften the skin but also help in healing various skin conditions.

    What is chitosan and how effective is it for weight loss?

    Subject: What is chitosan and how effective is it for weight loss?

    Chitosan is a compound extracted from the hard shells of shrimps and other crustaceans.  While it has many uses, it also claims that it aids in the elimination of excess fat in our bodies which makes it a perfect candidate for inclusion in any weight loss program.  It can be ingested in the form of capsules, powder and pills.


    How does it work?

    Chitosan works by preventing the absorption and storage of fat before it is metabolized in the stomach.  Basically, it is a fiber that absorbs fats when they enter the body.  Therefore, the fat is broken down and does not get absorbed into the blood stream.  Instead, fat and chitosan go through your small intestine or the ileum where they bind with bile acids. They then form an insoluble gel that passes through the large intestine and is excreted out of your body. This means that instead of the fat being absorbed into the blood stream, it is excreted out of the body and no fat absorption means no weight gain.

    There is still another way that chitosan helps in weight loss. Since chitosan is a fiber, it promotes cleansing which is important in the process of losing weight.

    Another reason this compound seems to work for weight loss is that it makes the body not to crave for fattening foods.  It neither starves nor does it make you feel hungry; this is simply because you continue eating fat, the only thing is that the fat does not get absorbed into your blood stream.

    Now, since less amounts of fat are entering the blood stream, the body is able to burn the existing fat present in your body. Therefore, your body Burns the fat in the body and you constantly lose weight.


    Weight Loss

    Chitosan products contain vitamin C which makes it swell up. This promotes appetite suppression which is very important for weight loss.

    There are many moisturizing lotions in the market that can help you moisturize your skin.  Many of these lotions are not natural and should be avoided.  If you want to enhance the appearance of your skin and the shine of your hair, using a natural oil such as shea nut oil is a solution you should consider.  Shea nut oil allows you to get the nutrients from shea butter without the heaviness.  Shea nut oil has many of the same benefits of the butter as it is useful in treating skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, and Burns.  Since the oil contains an abundance of oleic and stearic essential fatty acids, it provides many benefits for those who use it.

    Lotion

    Shea nut oil is an extraordinary skin care product because of its richness in constituents.  These constituents include unsaturated fats with a large proportion of essential fatty acids, Vitamin E and D, phytosterols, provitamin A and allantoin.  All these constituents are natural and ultimately serve as a superfood for your skin and your hair.  Among being a superfood for your skin and hair, it also works to repair fine lines and wrinkles, deeply moisturize and strengthen the skin, heal minor cuts and Burns, heal muscle aches, and serve as a physical endurance enhancer.

    Using shea nut oil works exceptionally well when treating a scalp condition such as dandruff or an itchy scalp. It can be used in a similar way as with other oils. It has the ability to soothe as well as moisturize. The shea nut oil is readily absorbed by the skin where it is then able to heal from within. If you are looking to enhance the shine of your hair, you will only need a small amount to get major shine and conditioning benefits.

    Rather than using a moisturizing lotion to moisturize your skin, you should take the benefits of using shea nut oil into consideration.  Due to the abundance of fatty acids and vitamins found in shea nut oil, it is an exceptional solution for getting great looking skin and hair.

    What are Beta-glucans?

    Beta glucan is a biological response modifier that nutritionally activates the immune response through the Dendritic, Macrophage and other immune cells to produce various therapeutic effects.

    Beta-glucans are sugars found in the cell walls of algae, fungi, lichens, bacteria, yeasts, and plants, such as oats and barley. They can be use as medicine.

    Benefits of beta-glucan

    Beta-glucans are use for cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and high cholesterol. Beta-glucans are also use for boosting the immune system in people whose body defenses have been weakens by emotional or physical stress, chronic fatigue syndrome or by treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation. Beta-glucans are also used for ulcerative colitis, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis, aging, H1N1 flu, Lyme disease, allergies, fibromyalgia, ear infections, rheumatoid, asthma and crohn's disease.

    Beta-glucans is applied to the skin for wrinkles, dermatitis, Burns, eczema, bedsores, radiation Burns, wounds and diabetic ulcers.

    Beta-glucans can be given by injection into the muscle or intravenously to boost the immune system in people with HIV/AIDS and related conditions and to treat cancer. Beta glucans are also given intravenously to prevent infection in people who have undergone surgery.

    Beta-glucans can be given by subcutaneously for reducing the size of skin tumors or for treating them.

    In the food industry, beta-glucans are used as an additive in products such as cheese spreads, frozen desserts, salad dressings and sour cream.

    Adding beta-glucans to your diet either in form of foods that contain the compound or in form of food supplements plays a significant role in boosting your immune system to help your body fight diseases.

    How does beta-glucans work?

    When taken by mouth, Beta-glucans lower blood cholesterol by inhibiting the absorption of cholesterol from food in the intestines and stomach. Beta-glucans stimulate the immune system by increasing chemicals that prevent infections when given by injection.

    Studies by leading scientists and medical experts have shown that Beta-glucans act as immunomodulator agents by triggering events that regulate and increase the efficiency of the immune system. Beta-glucans stimulate the activity of immune cells that attack and ingest invading pathogens.

    Immune cells such as Macrophages release cytokines that are chemicals that enable immune cells to communicate with each other. In addition, Beta-glucans increase the activity of white blood cells that bind to viruses or tumors, and release chemicals to destroy it. Beta-glucan is a biological response modifier that nutritionally activates the immune response through the Dendritic, Macrophage and other immune cells to produce various therapeutic effects.

    The potential side effects of Beta-glucan when taken by mouth are unknown. When used by injection, Beta-glucans can cause fever, pain at the injection site, chills, vomiting, headache, nausea, dizziness, rashes, diarrhea, back pain, joint pain and low blood pressure.

    Where does Beta-glucan come from?

    The body does not produce Beta-glucan naturally; you can only get it from outside sources such as shiitake mushrooms, baker’s yeast and cereal grains such as wheat, oats, barley and rye.

    The most potent form of beta glucan is extracted as a purified isolate from the yeast cell wall of Baker's yeast with harmful yeast proteins removed by a process that prevent clumping or reaggregation after exposure to water during digestion. Research has shown that Beta- glucan is a safe and potent immune potentiation isolate.

    Subject: Health benefits of Bromelain and its mechanism of fighting inflammation

    Bromelain is a blend of enzymes found in the juice and the stems of pineapples and is often used as a health supplement to assist in various disorders and enhance overall health. Here are the health benefits of Bromelain.

    Improved Heart health

    Bromelain functions as a blood thinner by breaking down the fibrins thus helps prevent blood clotting. It allows blood to move more freely throughout the circulatory system. Thinner blood is linked with lower possibilities of stroke, cardiac arrest and other heart problems.

    Improved Breathing conditions

    Bromelain is linked to improved breathing conditions that occur as a result of thicker mucus like asthma. It has similar effects on mucus as it has on blood thus making mucus thinner and thus does not clog the bronchial tubes.

    Improved Immunity

    It serves as an immunity booster and helps certain immunity boosting receptors within the body. As a result it fortifies the immune response by improving the response of body's front-line immune defense called the T-cells.

    Improved digestion

    If the pancreas is not very active, it may produce insufficient quantities of enzymes, making the food we eat just getting digested partially. Consuming a bromelain supplement might help to cure any resulting digestive complaints like stomach upset, heartburn, diarrhea or indigestion. It is especially effective when used in in conjunction with other enzymes such as amylase and lipase because of its protease functions.

    Wound healing

    An external application of bromelain might help getting rid of undesirable skin tissues in the third-degree Burns. Bromelain could also reduce inflammation due to insect bites and their stings.

    Alleviates Sinusitis

    Bromelain helps decreasing congestion and the cough that comes with sinusitis. Its anti-microbial attributes may wipe out viruses and bacteria associated with sinus infections.

    Relieves varicose veins and Hemorrhoids

    Bromelain is used as a complementary medicine in treating chronic venous insufficiency, hemorrhoids and varicose veins.

    Enhanced Acid-alkaline balance

    Bromelain can help in balancing the acidity and also the alkalinity in the small intestine. The anti-bacterial effects of bromelain helps relieving bacteria-related diarrhea connected with E. coli attacks and inflammatory bowel disease.

    Bromelain and Inflammation

    While inflammation aids mending the entire body during an injury, excessive swelling can result in health complications and speed up aging. Bromelain is beneficial in treating inflammation. The mechanism of how bromelain fights inflammation involves the inhibition of many bio-chemical responses and reactions that induce inflammation. Treatment with bromelain manages and regulates the activity of various bio-chemical messengers referred to as cytokines in our body. These cytokines are the chemical substances that trigger inflammation. By inhibiting the activity of cytokines, bromelain reduces the impulses that induce an inflammatory reaction.

    Bromelain also decreases the deposition of kinins, a by-product of inflammation and also prostaglandins, the hormone-like compounds found through the entire body Thus Bromelain assists fighting the majority of inflammation occurring after having a sports injury or after surgery, or from minor sprains and tendonitis. Certain kinds of arthritis which involve inflammation also benefits from bromelain, particularly in combination with some other typical anti-inflammatory medications.

    Do you take bromelain daily?  If not, why not?

    Subject: What Makes Tupelo Honey The Best Form Of Honey To Consume?

    The Reason Why Tupelo Honey Is The Best!

    The delicious sweet honey brings water to everyone's mouth. It is available in various forms to the honey lovers in different tastes. Often the classification is on different criteria. One such classification is based on the sources from which the honey is collected and another type of classification is based on the way in which the honey is processed and packaged.

    Tupelo honey forms a part of the first type of classification.

    There are many other types apart from this, all of which differ in tastes besides producing various benefits. However tupelo honey has better edge over others which can be substantiated with the following explanation. Tupelo honey is made from Nyssa Ogecha, the white tupelo tree. This is found mainly in the south eastern region of the United States. The basin of the Apalachicola River is the main source for this honey. The basins of other rivers such as Ochlocknee, Chipola and Choctahatchee also contain some trees that produce tupelo honey. 

    Tupelo Honey Nutrient Rich!

    Often it is considered as the best form of honey because of its high ratio of the level of fructose to that of glucose. This indicates that it is capable of generating energy for the body for a longer duration than other forms of honey, besides containing all the antibacterial and antimicrobial properties like other forms of honey. Tupelo honey is rich in nutritional composition with dextrose accounting for 25.29 percent, fructose for 43.25 percent, sucrose for 1.21 percent, maltose for 7.97 and other the higher sugars for 1.1 percent.

    In addition to these, it also contains riboflavin, thiamine, nicotinic acid, ascorbic acid, sodium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, copper, iron, phosphorous and calcium. Hence this is used for curing cough problems, treating sore throats and Burns. Also because of its low level of dextrose and high level of fructose, its usage is often recommended for diabetics patients.

    Subject: The Differences and Benefits

    There are different sources of healthy foods and ingredients that people can consume to boost their health and performance. Honey is one substance that is considered natural and has great various health benefits to prevent serious ailments, increase stamina, and improve the health of the skin and the overall body system. When talking about natural products related to honey and bee activities, people can also enjoy great benefits from royal jelly, bee pollen, and Propolis. 

    Value of Royal Jelly:

    Although they are made through the same bee activities, the source of their existence is different; thus, leading to different health benefits and usages.

    For a starter, let's talk about royal jelly first. Royal jelly is a substance that is milky or white in trait. The substance is produced by worker bees' gland in order to feed the queen bee. Although the royal jelly is also given to the larvae, it is the staple food for the queen bee. Queen bee gets to consume the jelly for life, while the larvae can only consume it for three days. The jelly is believed to contain healthy substances that make the queen bee survive for about four to five years.

    The reason for the health benefit of the royal jelly is the pantothenic acid and acetylcholine levels which are quite high. They are responsible in delivering nerve message between cells, in order to make sure that the body system works perfectly. The acetylcholine is believed to be responsible for Alzheimer disease. When the acetylcholine level is low, the possibility of suffering from Alzheimer is increasing. On the contrary, when the acetylcholine level is high, people can prevent the ailment. 

    Bee Pollen:

    The bee pollen is gained from plants' pollen. When the worker bees collect the pollen and they mix it up with their saliva and the nectar, they create small pellets that are then used to feed the male bees. The drones (the male bees) are usually residing within the beehive.

    Nutritive value of bee pollen:

    The bee pollen itself is believed to have great health benefits since it is rich in nutrition, vitamins, and minerals. Since the pollens are rich in antioxidants, protein, carbs, amino acids, and coenzymes, the benefits people can get from consuming the pollens are:

    • - They can deal with anxiety issue
    • - They can fight off insomnia
    • - They can improve their memory and focus
    • - They can reduce the possibility of mood swings
    • - They can deal with addictive issues, such as drinking, smoking, or substance abuse
    • - They can fight off infertility issue, especially for women
    • - They can improve their skin condition and health

    Propolis:

    Propolis is another product from the bee. Known as the bee glue, the resinous and sticky substance is mainly used by bees to seal off the cracks in their hive. They collect it from tree buds, so the composition, colors, and odor are different - depending on the resin source. 

    Uses:

    When Propolis is produced as cream, it is said to treat minor Burns, help opening the genital herpes lesions, and heal cervix inflammation. When used as nasal spray, it can treat running nose or throat infection. When used as mouthwash, it can reduce the plaque formation, help treating gum inflammation, and reduce the numbers of bacteria.

    Basically, each of these products is beneficial for people as they are rich in vitamins, minerals, and nutrition. People only need to choose which product suits their needs the most.

    But to answer the question, royal jelly is believed to be the most beneficial!

    Does Bee Propolis Have Healing Properties?

    Well, there are several health benefits associated with propolis.

    Health Benefits of Bee Propolis Skin Infections:

    Cancer:

    Subject: The Ox Bile Extracts Guide - Why You Need it and Top 5 Health Benefits

    No matter how healthy your diet is or how fit you are, if you are have digestion problems that are wrecking your health and disrupting your regular activities, then you might be in urgent need of some ox bile extracts.

    Ox Bile Extracts or Beef Bile Supplements are a combination of bile salts and bile acids that enhance or intensify the production of bile in the digestive system. It is produced from a source of cattle and dried in the freezer at high vacuum or 'lyophilized'.

    The next step is powdering it and packaging it into pills which are easily available online and in supplement shops. The bile from oxen resembles the bile which is produced in our bodies naturally in its chemical structure. That is why ox bile has been successfully proven to replicate and augment the production of bile in the human liver for faster and better food breakdown and nutrient absorption.

    Now, you might be forced to ask - why do we need Ox Bile supplements at all? 

    Bile helps the body beak down fats!

    First off - bile is a very important constituent of our digestive system. The liver excretes it; after which the gall bladder stores it till we eat food. Then, the bile does its vital job of breaking down the food particles (bile salts attack the cholesterol and other fatty food constituents to break them down) and aiding in the absorption of lipids or fats.

    What happens when your gall bladder is removed surgically?

    Or why is animal-derived bile needed, anyway?

    Aging causes our digestive processes to slow down. The secretion of bile is affected as well.

    You might believe you're healthy as a horse but if you are prone to symptoms like :

    1.  constipation,
    2.  Irritable Bowel Syndrome,
    3.  flatulence,
    4.  indigestion,
    5.  bloating,
    6.  lack of energy,
    7.  bad headaches, and
    8.  heartburn or GERD.

    You are very likely to be suffering from a lack of digestive enzymes in your body and you need artificial ones to help you get your digestive system in order again.

    And if have had a gall bladder removed by surgery, then you must know just

    HOW crucial these digestive enzymes are to your natural digestive system.

    Top 5 Benefits of Ox Bile Extracts

    • One - It is beneficial in emulsifying the fats in your food and augmenting the assimilation of Vitamins E, K, D and A (all fat-soluble).
    • Two - It helps in treating many severe liver diseases like Cirrhosis and Hepatitis.
    • Three - It increase your body's metabolic rate, which Burns more calories and it also keeps a check on your cholesterol.
    • Four - It is even proved to cause a decrease in gallstones.
    • Five - Ox bile also helps in treating small intestine diseases like Crohn's disease.

    Warnings

    A warning here - some people using the ox bile extracts have had certain allergic reactions to it like nausea, diarrhea and an upset stomach. This usually happens as a result of increasing the dosage.

    For the most part, 99% of the people who consume digestive enzymes do not experience any negative side effects.
