Subject: A Healthy Endocannabinoid System ECS Properly Regulates The Following:

Understanding the ECS

Some Endocannabinoids tell out body how much inflammatory messenger molecules to release or with hold. Others tell how fast to move Food through the gastrointestinal tract. Still others tell the brain to release or hold neurotransmitters to calm the brain.

  • Stress
  • Memory
  • Mood
  • Inflammation
  • Energy
  • Sleep
  • Metabolism
  • Appetite
  • Appetite
  • Pain response
  • Immune function
  • Nerve signaling
  • Muscle control

Age does Matter!

Aging is a major contributor to a unhealthy ECS function. Lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise, exposure to toxins and stress impact and contribute to a declining ECS.

  • These factors cause us to product fewer endocannabinoids.
  • Contribute to fewer enzymes known to liberate endocannabinoids in the body.
  • Then, Endocannabinoid receptors loose sensitivity and don't respond well.

Any age can consume CBD and benefit from a balanced ECS. Take the plunge and try CBD today!

    Destroys Bacterial Biofilm

    Xylitol is a Sugar alcohol with a unique 5-carbon structure. Clinical studies suggest xylitol breaks up biofilm bacteria found in the teeth. Bacteria found in the teeth try and consume this unique 5-carbon sugar molecule, but soon discover it can not break down the sugar for Food, so it expends all its energy trying to expel the sugar effectively starving out the bacteria and killing it.

    Has anti-adherence Effect:

    Xylitol also has anti-adherence effects within the mouth. When you brush of floss with xylitol, the bacteria in the mouth can not stick to anything, because of this the bacteria can not colonize and reproduce.

    Can promote salivation:

    Xylitol promotes salivation which is a natural defense system in the mouth. By consuming mints, gum, and other forms of Foods that contain xyltiol, one can help prevent cavities and improve oral health. Have you had your xylitol today?

    Subject: Omega-3s are a potent way to treat depression without resorting todangerous prescription medications





    One can treat poor mood and depression without using pharmaceutical drugs. One of these approaches involves using omega-3 fatty acid. Foods rich in this fatty acid can help. It has been shown by many scientific studies that the risk of having depression is reduced when one takes foods rich in omega-3 fatty acid. Some of the means that have been identified as the pathways in which omega-3 fatty acids work is that they can make the CNS to release more serotonin, they can reduce the risk of an inflammation and also its severity, and they can stop phosphatidyl-inositol from releasing hormones that make a person to have depressive moods. The way omega-3 fatty acids do this has been found to be similar to the way anti-depressant drugs work. Omega-3 fatty acids have been found to counter the release of serotonin in the brain that trigger depressive moods and they also have effect on the release of cytokines in the heart that relates to lowering the risk of one having coronary heart disease. And fortunately, heart disease is linked to major depressive moods. So, omega-3 fatty acid is a powerful compound that can be used to treat both problems. But what researchers have not agreed upon though is the required dosage of omega-3 fatty acid that a person should take each day to reap these benefits.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Many ways in which one can remedy the occurrence of poor moods and depression without the use of pharmaceutical drugs have now been discovered.
    • The risk of having depression have been found to be influenced by eating omega-3 fatty acids and those who take it in large amounts have low risk of depression.
    • Similar to how pharmaceutical drugs help a person with depression, omega-3 fatty acids stop immune cells from releasing cytokines that are pro-inflammatory in the brain.

    "The fatty acids achieve their natural antidepressant effects through several means. Omega-3s can raise the activity of CNS seratonin, reduce the risk and severity of inflammation, and stop phosphatidyl-inositol from sending signals that bring about depressive moods."

    Broccoli is loaded with anti-aging ingredients such as antioxidants and collagen. Broccoli is known for its nutrition as it is packed with vitamins A and C as well as calcium and iron. The body uses vitamin C to produce collagen, which affects the outward appearance of people. The plant's antioxidants can work as an anti-inflammatory for the body, and they also get rid of free radicals which helps lessen the risks of oxidation in your cells and tissues.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Broccoli is a superfood that contains antioxidant and collagen to prevent aging.
    • Collagen maintains your hair, skin, and nails and requires a lot of Vitamin C, which is one of the main nutrients in broccoli.
    • For the maximum amount of Vitamin C, you should eat raw broccoli, or steam cook it if you want it hot.

    "A member of the cruciferous vegetable family, broccoli is completely edible from the crowded clusters of dark green florets at its top to the very tip of its stem. It provides a lot of nutrition, being filled with vitamin A and vitamin C, and containing large amounts of calcium and iron."

    Subject: Used in moderation, nutritional yeast can boost immunity andimprove digestion





    Nutritional yeast, with the scientific name Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is sometimes called nooch and is made from beet molasses and sugar cane. This yeast uses sugar for energy in its yeast cells and are believed to help improve digestion. It is rich in nutrients and B vitamins like vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B6 and can also give a rich, nutty, and savory flavor to food; that is why vegans and vegetarians use it often. Even non-vegans can use it for its high nutritional content. It is noted that only fortified nutritional yeast contains the added B vitamins since unfortified yeast contains the vitamins that were produced by the yeast itself but one can buy both the fortified and unfortified varieties and blend them together. It is naturally low in sodium and calories. It is also free of fat, free of gluten, free of sugar and as I said before, vegan. Properly stored it can last for up to two years in the home. Some of the health benefits of nutritional yeast are that it boosts immunity, improves digestion, is a vegan source of vitamin B12 and lowers cholesterol and blood pressure.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Nutritional yeast is rich in B vitamins, contains fiber and protein along with many minerals such as zinc and iron.
    • Unfortified yeast doesn't have any added vitamins but fortified yeast contains synthetic vitamins.
    • Nutritional yeast boosts your immune system, improves digestion, lowers blood pressure and promotes healthy hair, nails and skin.

    "Vegans and vegetarians use nutritional yeast because it is rich in nutrients and B vitamins, but you can also add it to your diet if you are looking for a natural ingredient with a cheesy, nutty, and savory flavor."

    Nasopharyngeal cancer is a form of cancer that unfortunately has a high rate of spreading to other areas of the body. A certain form of red raspberry called the Rubus idaeus has been shown to inhibit the ability of the cancer cells from spreading to other parts of the body. Not only can Rubus idaeus help fight off certain forms of cancer, but it also helps protect against diabetes while protecting the heart and sustaining eye health.

    Key Takeaways:

    • One of the greatest superfoods that are grown and known to mankind are berries and studies suggest that they are rick in antioxidants and have cancer-fighting properties.
    • A type of berry that is scientifically known as Rubus idaeus, or commonly called red raspberry, can protect against nasopharyngeal cancer, a type of head and neck cancer.
    • The scientists who did the study at a Chinese university used a lab trial to understand how a red raspberry extract can prevent cancer from spreading.

    European scientists recently published new research in the journal Thorax which indicates that correcting a vitamin D deficiency can mitigate breathing and lung problems caused by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). COPD symptoms include chronic bronchitis, asthma that cannot be reversed and persistent difficulty with breathing. However, the benefits only apply to people who have a deficiency of the vitamin. Vitamin D can help augment the immune system while reducing harmful inflammatory responses. Good food source of vitamin D include several species of fish, as well as eggs and mushrooms l.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Not specifically one disease, COPD refers to an array of chronic, serious and non-reversible lung conditions, such as emphysema.
    • COPD sufferers with low levels of vitamin D may curb symptoms by consuming bitamin-D rich foods, like salmon, beef liver and egg yolks, so suggests data.
    • The data arises from a review of four randomized controlled trials that used more than 500 overall participants.

    "Carried out by a team of researchers from Europe, the study revealed that supplementing with regular doses of vitamin D safely and significantly reduced the symptoms of COPD."

    According to Taiwanese citizens, the cordyceps(mushroom) is a powerful food. They say it can help with the immune system, and fights against tumors, as a start. Though they are hard to grow in large volumes due to a parasitic symbiosis, they are still worth the effort to study and learn from. Taiwanese universities have already studied how fermentation affects this mushroom, and they want to increase their knowledge, especially when it comes to perhaps growing alternatives to meet the demand.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Some universities researchers in Taiwan have carried out a comprehensive review that sought to understand the state of cordyceps research in the country.
    • The Taiwanese highly regard the cordyceps for its numerous biological activities which include being an anti-tumor compound, an antioxidant and a pro-sexual agent.
    • Some of the things that the review looked at was on how different methods of fermentation and production can have an effect on the chemical properties of cordyceps.

    "In the review, the researchers identified the primary challenge in the mass production of Cordyceps sinensis, which is the difficulty in collecting natural variants with parasitic hosts, coupled with discoveries regarding its pharmacological benefits."

    Subject: Can sulforaphane help children with autism?





    Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli have enormous amounts of sulforaphane. Research has even shown that when this compound is taken in large quantities, it can help alleviate the problem of autism in children. Autism is a very important consideration because it affects about one in ten children right now; this is according to experts. New cases are also increasing worldwide. The author states that the recent increases in autism reporting is due to the fact that vaccination schedules in children are increasing and vaccines deliver toxins to the child which can damage the nervous system. Sulforaphane though has been shown to be a chemical that can help in alleviating autism in children even after they have been vaccinated. The research was carried out by scientists at the John Hopkins University who found out that eating foods that have enormous amounts of sulforaphane can help autistic children by enhancing their social skills, verbal communication ability, and their general behavior. The compound, sulforaphane, acts through activating the genes that shield the cells from inflammation, damage to the genetic material, oxidative stress, and other factors that are linked to autism. The study was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Sulforaphane is a compound that is found in large amounts in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and recent research shows it can help children with autism.
    • The latest estimates on the effects of autism on children shows that the condition now affects about one out of every forty-five children.
    • The rapidly increasing spike in autism cases in children is linked to the increased rate of vaccination in children where the toxins affect their nervous system.

    "The results of their experiment showed that the sulforaphane group demonstrated considerable improvements in social behavior by the time of the fourth week of treatment."

    If you are losing hair faster than normal, you could be biotin deficient. Biotin is also known as Vitamin B7 and supports the health and growth of hair and nails. Nuts, sweet potatoes and dark leafy vegetables are all rich in Biotin. Onions also have biotin. The best source of biotin is actually animal liver. If you cannot eat liver, consider eggs instead. Three eggs a day will provide your daily requirement of Biotin without the taste of liver.

    Key Takeaways:

    • People who suffer from a deficiency of biotin are in that small group of people who frequently lose their hair more than usual.
    • Certain food groups have been found to contain large quantities of biotin and people who are low in it can take these food to increase their levels.
    • As a person grows older, the minimum level of biotin he needs to have in his body rises and for a typical adult it is 30 micrograms.

    "Also known as vitamin B7, biotin supports the healthy growth of hair, skin, and nails."

    Subject: 4 reasons you should eat more mushrooms





    Mushrooms are a nutritious food with many health benefits. Mushrooms can provide one of the few completely vegan foods with lots of vitamin D, although that is only if they’re exposed to sunlight and not grown in the dark. They’ve got tons of fiber, and are also full of niacin, phosphorus and other minerals. Evidence to support claims that mushrooms help prevent specific diseases is weak, but what is definitely clear is that sautéed mushrooms are delicious, and there’s no reason not to eat them.

    Key Takeaways:

    • People revere magical mushrooms, but all mushrooms have amazing abilities that helps the body when it comes to healthy living and healing abilities.
    • Vitamin D supplements apart from that from sunshine only come from animals such as fatty fishes and dairy products fortified with the vitamin.
    • It is known that the amazing mushroom produces vitamin D abundantly such that a 100-gram serving can give one about 50 to 100 percent of the daily dose.

    "You only need 10 to 15 minutes of sunshine three times a week to get your necessary dose of vitamin D, but if you’re still running low you can supplement with food sources."

    A new study has found that adding fermented shiitake mushroom to rice bran is effective in inhibiting the growth of Salmonella typhimurium. The study was conducted on mouse organs and it was published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine. This formulation has been hailed as a new antimicrobial food-compatible formulation. The study was conducted on murine macrophage cells and in mice. Before this, it was known that the bioactive compounds in rice brans and in shiitake mushrooms have a lot of potential health benefits in mice, cells, and rodents. When the mycelia cells were compared against non-fermented ones, it was found that the bioactive compounds present in the fermented shiitake mushrooms could not be found in the ones that had not fermented. Further findings showed that the pathogen, Salmonella, was inhibited in infected macrophage cells and in organs in the mouse such as the cecum, mesenteric lymph node, spleen, and the liver. Another finding was that there was increased secretion of the bacteria in the feces in mouse. Overall, this findings show that fermented shiitake mushrooms with rice brans can be used as an antibiotic and antimicrobial food.

    Key Takeaways:

    • To carry out the study a team of researchers from Korea and the US tried to understand the effect of shiitake mushroom with rice bran on macrophage cells.
    • The component produced in rice plants are bioactive rice brans and hulls while that produced by mushrooms are bioactive polysaccharides and other compounds.
    • When mushroom mycelia that was fermenting with rice bran cells were inspected it was found that they have bioactive compounds that are absent in the non-fermenting mycelia.

    Subject: For the men: Multivitamins can keep heart disease at bay





    When one gets insufficient nutrients from the diet, taking multivitamins can be a healthy way to improve this. A recent study has shown that men who take multivitamins a lot are less prone to diseases related to the heart such as stroke and even death related to cardiovascular diseases. But how can cardiovascular diseases be prevented using multivitamins? There are few studies in this direction although a lot of studies have been done on the health benefits of multivitamins. That is why a team of researchers in the US embarked on a study of the incidence of multivitamin usage on major cardiovascular diseases like stroke, heart attack, and cardiovascular death. The study was a long term prospective study. The study was conducted between 1982 and 1995 using 18,530 healthy men that were aged from 40 years and above who the researchers followed. The participants reported their lifestyle habits and as well as their intake of certain foods. Throughout the follow up study, there were only 1,697 reported cases of cardiovascular diseases. This made the researchers to conclude that taking multivitamins means a reduced risk to cardiovascular diseases. It is then appropriate for one to choose the right kind of supplements to improve the diet.

    Key Takeaways:

    • When one suspects that he is not getting the full nutrients that his body needs on a daily basis, taking quality multivitamins is necessary.
    • According to a recent study that was done on multivitamins, men who have taken them for a long time have lower risks of stroke and cardiovascular diseases.
    • Many persons know of the important role of multivitamins in improving and maintaining health, but little research has been done on its role on cardiovascular disease.

    The CDC assesses that more than 5,100,000 Americans have some variant of heart disease, and that 610,000 will die from it this year alone. While the conventional range of treatments mostly relies on medications, micronutrient-based Cellular Medicine provides an alternative. Cellular Medicine pioneer Dr. Matthias Rath has carried out some very promising clinical research involving micronutrient supplementation. Dr. Rath believes that the American diet, medication side effects and modern food handling and production practices mean that many people are deprived of a range of important micronutrients, with very bad consequences for heart health.

    Key Takeaways:

    • A physician named Dr. Rath views heart disease as an early form of scurvy, which results from a Vitamin C deficiency.
    • If your body does not have enough Vitamin C, cracks can form in your arterial walls and your body tries to repair them with artery-clogging plaque.
    • In addition to Vitamin C, people at risk for heart disease should also consume more Vitamin E and B-complex vitamins.

    "With the odds of surviving past the five-year mark currently standing at 50 percent, it’s clear that more effective prevention and treatment options are needed."

    Subject: 10 Reasons why vitamin D is essential for your health





    Vitamin D is considered the sunshine vitamin because it is synthesized by the skin when one is exposed to the sun. It is paramount for optimal health. It can only be found in a handful of foods such as fish, mushrooms, eggs, and fortified foods. The sun is the most important source of this vitamin. Many persons tend to spend less time outdoors that is why a third of the population is deficient in vitamin D. Here are some reasons why it is beneficial to take the sun and get this vitamin. One health benefit of vitamin D is that it improves muscle function. Deficiency of this vitamin is linked to loss of muscle mass and strength. Another health benefit is that it lowers the risk of asthma attacks by half. Vitamin D can also help to prevent and treat multiple sclerosis, and protect against Alzheimer’s and parkinson’s disease. Other health benefits are outlined in the article.

    Key Takeaways:

    • When one gets exposed to the sunlight, his body begins to synthesize vitamin D that is why the vitamin is called the "sunshine vitamin".
    • Although the sun is the most important source of vitamin D, it can be found in foods such as fatty fish, certain mushrooms, eggs, and fortified foods.
    • When one has a deficiency of vitamin D, it has been linked to loss of muscle mass and loss of strength.

    "These days, however, most of us tend to spend less time outdoors which may explain why more than a third of the world population suffers from low levels of vitamin D."

    Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) doesn't just cause uncomfortable digestive symptoms, but it also can result in intestinal hyper-permeability, which decreases the rate in which your body can absorb vitamins and nutrients that are required to thrive. An amino acid called glutamine can help by reducing the rate in which intestinal hyper-permeability occurs, allowing your system to absorb primary nutrients in a much more effective manner. It also showed to reduce the symptoms of IBS all-around.

    Key Takeaways:

    • About 45 million Americans have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and they know this can be really upsetting because sometimes they have constipation and diarrhea with it.
    • The journal Gut contained a 2018 study that could be of help to people with IBS because it assessed the effectiveness and safety of an oral glutamine supplement.
    • Glutamine is an amino acid, among millions of amino acids produced by the body and that can also be found in food which are building blocks for protein.

    "In the quest to find natural solutions for IBS or digestive upset, adding a glutamine supplement to a well-balanced diet could be the next key step."

    Recent research published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition indicates that taking your protein supplement before working out can help increase your body’s fat oxidation. In a study of 11 college-aged males who took either whey or casein protein supplements prior to moderate exercise, it was found that both post-exercise fat oxidation and post-exercise energy consumption improved. Casein has more of an impact in this study than whey. This strongly suggests you should take your protein supplement before exercising.

    Key Takeaways:

    • It has been shown that the timing of when proteins are taken really matters as researchers have realized that taking protein supplements before workout improves post-workout burn.
    • 11 healthy, recreationally active college males were recruited for the study and they did not take any caffeine 30 days before the study.
    • The proteins that the participants took were 25 g of whey protein isolate, 35 g of casein protein, and 25 g of food additive maltodextrin.

    "Published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, the study looked at the effect of taking protein supplements before exercise on fat oxidation and energy expenditure during and after a bout of moderate-intensity exercise.

    Reishi mushrooms and reishi extract have substantial health benefits, especially for boosting your immune system. Reishi mushrooms include a diverse array of bioactive compounds that, collectively, may boost cellular metabolism and restore the efficiency that the immune system tends to lose over time. Studies also indicate that reishi mushroom compounds may help induce immune cells to target cancer cells more aggressively, and boost the cancer-fighting functions of the spleen and thymus. Reishi mushrooms extracts may also help boost your overall immune system response against viruses and other pathogens.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Eating reishi mushrooms better prepares the immune system of the body for diseases that might attack it such as hepatitis B, cancer, and human immunodeficiency syndrome.
    • Reishi mushroom extracts have been shown to variously restrict the growth of timorous cells thereby decreasing one’s risk of getting cancer and extending one’s life.
    • Reishi mushroom’s status as a powerful and active superfood is made stabilized by the presence of various bio-active molecules which work together in the mushroom.

    Subject: Caprylic acid is an effective weapon against candida overgrowth andbiofilms





    Candida albicans can form biofilms — very thin, very sticky coatings of microbes — if it becomes too abundant in your system. These overgrowths of Candida can cause brain fog, a wide variety of digestive complaints, weight gain, joint pain, sores and a panoply of other symptoms. These overgrowth can be caused by everything from antibiotics and stress to dietary factors. Caprylic acid is a compound found in coconut oil which may be able to help control Candida overgrowth by eliminating embedded biofilms.

    Key Takeaways:

    • When one has a stubborn candida albicans fungal growth it can result in symptoms like joint pain, brain fog and depression that wreaks havoc on his health.
    • Candida infections form two biofilms on the skin with thin adhesive layers of microbes and the challenge is to find antibiotics against them without any side effects.
    • In a new study, researchers have found that caprylic acid, which is a component found in coconut oil, can be used against candida albicans biofilms.

    "Insufficient sleep, chronic stress, exposure to environmental toxins and a diet high in sugar and refined flours can also set the stage for candidiasis."

    Subject: Problems digesting fat? Here are 5 ways to get your gut moving





    There are nutrients which require fatty acids for absorption. It is possible that you are struggling with absorbing fat, which can be seen in problems including light colored and stinky stools, bloating, nausea, or fatigue. Liver congestion, poor quality bile, or lacking of pancreatic enzymes may be the problem. Beet greens, collard, and chicory are a few helpful bitter foods that may stimulate your enzymes to function more properly. Foods including lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, spinach, and celery may help your hydrochloric acid in breaking down foods. Add in honey, avocados, bananas, ginger, pineapples, or kiwi to boost digestive enzymes.You can also help your body with medium chain fatty acids like coconut oil for absorption of nutrients. Finally, consider a probiotic supplement or fermented foods to help with proper breakdown and digestion.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Some symptoms, such as fatigue, bloating, weight gain and nausea when encountering fatty foods, may have an inability to properly absorb fats as a root cause.
    • People with such an inability are also prone to excreting light-colored and particularly foul-smelling feces.
    • An inability to properly absorb fats can stem from liver congestion, poor quality bile, or from a lack of pancreatic enzymes.

    "These symptoms may also be an indication of other nutrient deficiencies as some nutrients need fatty acids to be absorbed."

    The vitamin B7, often known as Biotin is normally advertised as a supplement to help with the growth of hair and nail tissue. In a new write up by Zoey Sky, she provides the general public with a few different symptoms that may indicate your body has a Biotin deficiency, such as dry and itchy skin or constant bouts of fatigue. She also provides a few benefits that come along with taking a Biotin supplement such as a positive change in thyroid health, better digestion and ability to absorb nutrients as well as support for your nervous system.

    Key Takeaways:

    • When someone starts to experience a dry and brittle hair condition, or the skin starts to become red and itchy, he may have a biotin deficiency.
    • Another name for biotin is vitamin B7 and it is a water-soluble vitamin which means that it is easily depleted from the body and has to be restored.
    • Some of the reasons why one should add biotin-rich foods to the diet include that it boosts thyroid health, and it can be used in managing type 2 diabetes.

    "The average recommended daily intake for biotin is five micrograms (mcg) for infants and small children, 30 mcg for adults, and 35 mcg for pregnant and breastfeeding women."

    The bone broth diet is something that has become increasingly popular. The diet was developed by Dr. Kellyann Petrucci and was detailed in her diet book on the same subject. The bone broth diet itself is used intermittently with the paleo diet, as an emphasis on consuming whole foods and low amounts of sugar and carbohydrates is necessary for its success. In order to follow the diet a user would consume only the paleo diet for five days and then fast on the other two days of the week.

    Key Takeaways:

    • The bone broth diet consists of cycling between fasting and eating whole foods paired with bone broth for a period of 21 days.
    • Benefits of the bone broth diet include weight loss, healthy skin, improved joint function, and improved gut health.
    • The bone broth diet may not be for everyone, so it is recommended to test out the diet in a 7-day period before beginning the diet.

    Many of us are aware of fiber being an important nutrient, but what about prebiotic fibers? These are essential when it comes to cleansing the colon and regulating the metabolism, as well as digestion. A study showed that mice who were living on a high-fat diet without the presence of prebiotics showed to have troublesome symptoms such as a slower metabolic rate and less weight loss. This is in comparison to the mice who were given the replica of a high fat diet with prebiotic fibers present.

    Men and women who suffer from arthritis experience daily joint inflammation, stiffness, and pain, which negatively affects their daily routine. While medication is an important piece of treating arthritis, a balanced diet is also critical for optimal daily living. A healthy diet for someone with arthritis should include many foods with anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger is one food source known to reduce inflammation and have pain relieving effects. It can be consumed in tea or part of a syrup. Turmeric is another very powerful anti-inflammatory that also has tissue protection properties. For best absorption, take turmeric with black pepper. Also, berries, olive oil, and fatty fish are all great additions to a healthy and balanced diet of those with arthritis.

    Key Takeaways:

    • As a disease that is common in men and women, arthritis affects the joints of the body and the joint inflammation can lead to constant pain.
    • The definite cause for the disease is not yet known, but the two types of arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, cause inflammation to the joints.

    As you may know, heavy metals are everywhere, in our water, food, dental fillings, and air. Fortunately, according to the latest research, modified citrus pectin is a substance that can help to safely remove these toxic metals from the body. The accumulation of heavy metals in the body not only can lead to chronic disease, but it also compromises the body's ability to heal from illness. Some common toxic heavy metals are lead, mercury, and cadmium. To reduce your body's burden of heavy metals, take 15 grams of the product PectaSol three times a day.

    Key Takeaways:

    • We have a toxic burden that surrounds us daily. It could be in personal care products, in paints, vaccines, or conventional dental fillings.
    • Western medicine tries to downplay the risk we take due to the toxic burden we carry daily, but traditional medicines emphasizes that it impacts on the health.
    • Even when is still under the conventional threshold for exposure to toxicity, accumulation of heavy metal can impact the health by depleting antioxidants and detoxifiers.

    "Mercury, a known neurotoxin, is found in fish such as swordfish and shark, as well as in “silver” dental fillings. The crazy part is: we know that mercury can seriously affect the nervous system, causing tremors, loss of coordination, muscular spasms and even death."

    Subject: 5 Foods To Help You Fight Insomnia





    Insomnia, which is a chronic lack of sleep, achieved because the insomniac can't seem to enter a state of sleeping, or because the sufferer can't sustain the state once achieved, is a debilitating problem for many. While there exist pharmaceutical interventions for insomnia, there are also more natural ways to combat the problem, specifically food choices that may help. Tryptophan is the hormone that releases the relaxing chemical serotinin, that helps sleep arrive. Hummus has natural tryptophan. Kiwi has specific phtyochemicals and antioxidants that also promote sleep. Healthy carbs tend to make us sleep, which is why corn is a good sleep-promoter. Milk is another healthy carrier of tryptophan. Chewing on basil might help too as it eases mental woes and soothes troubled digestion.

    Key Takeaways:

    • A word that can be used to describe insomnia in this our era is habitual sleeplessness and this phenomenon is on the rise.
    • Insomnia when it becomes habitual causes restlessness and anxiety. At night, even though one is exhausted, sleep does not come and one gets fidgety and the mind blurry.

    Subject: Can I Eat Fruit On a Keto Diet?





    The ketogenic diet is now trending across the globe, but many have many impressions about this eating regimen that are far from the truth. One of these myths surround the fact that keto dieters cannot consume any carbs at all, making the majority of fruits off limits. Keto followers can actually have up to 50 grams of carbohydrates to start, and they are encouraged to consume healthy fruits that are low in carbohydrates such as lemons or avocados.

    Key Takeaways:

    • People often ask if they can eat fruit on a ketogenic diet because in the keto world fruits are often a contentious subject.
    • It is wrong for people to label some foods as keto or non-keto rather they should set diet goals based on their health, activity level, and food preferences.
    • For people who adhere to a very strict definition of keto, the carbs in a fruit can take away a large chunk of their daily carb recommendations.

    "Higher carb fruits are going to be harder to incorporate into a keto diet while still allowing room for the liberal intake of vegetables and avocados encouraged in the Keto Reset."

    Subject: Is this cruciferous vegetable the key to brain regeneration?





    Scientists have been researching ways of achieving brain regeneration for decades, but the article suggests that cruciferous vegetables is a method of regenerating the brain. An MIT scientist discovered that the growth of nervous tissue is aided by phyto-substances, which is a nutrient that can be found in common vegetables, like broccoli. A compound found in broccoli also has more positive effects on the body, as it has anti-inflammatory properties. Broccoli is helpful for elderly patients that suffer from degenerative diseases.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Toxins that are present in the air, water, and food can significantly interfere with one’s ability to learn, remember, and even communicate.
    • It was formerly believed in the past by scientists and considered a settled issue that brain regeneration was not a possibility.
    • Today, it is being observed by scientists that brain regeneration by cruciferous vegetables is possible. Joseph Altman, an MIT scientist, was the first to make this observation in 1960.

    "This natural process of brain regeneration is expedited by certain beneficial phyto-nutrients, and hampered by certain toxic elements."
