  • Black pepper and turmeric have lots of similarities when it comes to the health benefits they provide and both are considered aromatic spices.
  • The yellow color of turmeric comes from the compound curcumin which it contains while the black color of black pepper comes from piperine.

"At the same time, it preserves turmeric from inflammatory processes that would normally break down the spice before it could be processed by the digestive system."

Spinach, one of the healthiest vegetables available, and it contains a high amount of lutein. The best way to get this lutein is to blend it in a smoothie or add it to a green juice. Because lutein is fat-soluble and stored in the immune cells, the researchers for this study were looking for ways to boost lutein levels in the blood and take advantage of its many health benefits. The research team that came from Sweden used Spinach to understand this process and they processed spinach in various ways, examining various heating and steaming methods to best bolster lutein content in spinach. They found that heating makes spinach to lose its lutein content and the more it is boiled, the more lutein that is lost. They found that the best way to consume spinach to preserve its lutein content is to take it cold. Therefore that is why adding spinach to smoothies is recommended for maximum consumption of lutein in spinach.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dark green vegetables contain abundant quantities of lutein and this natural fat-soluble pigment can be used to fight inflammation in immune cells for people with coronary heart disease.
  • It has also been found that lutein can be stored in immune cells which means one can have a reserve or store of lutein in the body.
  • The research team wanted to find out which method of cooking makes lutein in spinach most available and they fried, steamed, and boiled the spinach for several minutes.

"There are many different ways of preparing spinach, but a recent study suggests that blending it in a smoothie or adding it to your green juice is the best way to maximize its lutein content."

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."

Exploring the fatty acids that REDUCE your risk of premature death

Subject: Exploring the fatty acids that REDUCE your risk of premature death





According to six separate studies published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the regular consumption of fatty acids substantially decreases the risk of premature death in adults. When the fatty acids are derived specifically from fish oil, the risk of death from any cause is reduced by 14 percent, compared to low or no consumption. Specifically, the risk of dying from a cardiac event is reduced by a whopping 47 percent. Unfortunately, because these studies don't appear in medical journals, most doctors do not advise their patients to take fish oil. There is also evidence that suggests fish oil decreases the risk of stroke and has potent anti-inflammatory properties. A word of caution, if you are on blood-thinners, consult with an integrative physician before taking fish oils regularly.

Key Takeaways:

  • The author asserts that the sugar industry is behind the myth that fats is a bad thing for the health while processed sugar is more dangerous.
  • Heart attacks kills millions of people every year but the true story is that premature death is a result of people not being informed about the benefits of fats.
  • A 2017 study that studied the relationship between fish oil that has fatty acids to mortality showed that it produced a 14 percent reduction in risk to death.

"In one study, fish oil was associated with better survival rates in heart attack victims, with researchers finding improved heart function and lower levels of inflammatory markers in people who took high-dose fish oil for six months after suffering a heart attack."

Subject: Plant proteins found to help prevent Type 2 diabetes





A recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition analyzed the diets of more than 2,000 men. It specifically sought to find a correlation between protein sources and diabetes. It found that, in general, men with a higher intake of protein from plants were less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. Conversely, men who got most of their protein from processed or unprocessed meats were more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. Several other studies from Harvard have reached parallel conclusions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers from the University of Eastern Finland looked at the dietary habits of 2000 men to try to learn the impact of protein sources on heart health.
  • Plant-based diets are associated with significant drops in the risk of Type 2 diabetes, even when subjects also are less healthy foods as well.
  • One serving of red meat per day is enough to substantially raise the risk of type 2 diabetes relative to non-meat eaters.

"According to the study, men who had the highest intake of plant proteins were 35 percent less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes compared with those who had the lowest consumption."

Those who follow paleobiology have a deep belief that life started within the ocean itself. Right now, those who are highly active in physical activity typically rely on supplemental beverages that include a large amount of essential vitamins and minerals, but they often include a lot of preservatives as well. Fortunately, a recent study showed that athletes are able to thrive and preform just as well when ingesting discovery of deep ocean minerals (DOMs) through natural avenues.

Key Takeaways:

  • 70 minerals, sourced from the oceanic depths, were the recent focus of a multinational study.
  • These specific 70 minerals, purports the study, may increase brain blood flow and hemoglobin post-exercise.
  • Although athletes routinely ingest energy-boosting post-workout drinks, many are highly processed and replete with artificial ingredients.

"From this idea, scientists hypothesized that ingesting the minerals from deep ocean water may replenish incomplete molecular complexities and increase our physical capacity against energy-consuming and physically taxing challenges."

Subject: Research proves the healing potential of monk fruit on cancerpatients





Monk fruit, which is already widely used as both an ingredient for traditional Chinese medicine and as a substitute for sugar, may also have beneficial properties for fighting cancer. Researchers from the Beijing University of Agriculture conducted studies of a monk fruit compound called mogroside V, and found that it can prevent the growth of pancreatic cancer cells, or even trigger them to die. Mogroside V is also a powerful antioxidant. Monk fruit may also provide health benefits by reducing how much processed sugar people eat.

Key Takeaways:

  • One of the stalwarts of traditional Chinese medicine is the monk fruit and these old fruit is finding therapeutic uses in our modern times.
  • In the West, the fruit is used as a replacement for processed sugar as a sweetener because it is healthier.
  • In China, the monk fruit is revered as a longevity fruit that extends people’s lifespan and is the first fruit to be prescribed when there is an ailment.

"Mogroside V was used to treat several models of pancreatic cancer. It was shown to trigger death in cancer cells and prevent them from developing or spreading any further. Chinese researchers theorized that the plant-based compound disrupted the STAT3 signaling pathway that cancer cells used for communication."

Flu season is already here, and rectifying your routine food intake to a diet that includes more immunity boosting foods is a great way to make your system less vulnerable. Seeking out foods that represent a variety of colors is a good place to start. For instance, foods that are red, yellow, or orange tend to be high in levels of vitamin C. Maintaining sufficient vitamin C levels is key in keeping your body nourished with antioxidants and phytonutrients.

Key Takeaways:

  • During this flu season, many will find it comforting that food can provide the needed boost to their immune system that they need.
  • No one food on its own can cure any disease or prevent one from being infected by disease, yet eating healthy food is beneficial.
  • The Western diet which consists of processed meats, fast foods, and junk foods overtaxes the immune system and does not provide us with the needed nutrients.

"Yet many colorful foods also can provide benefits for your immune system and gut health."

Sugar as various effects on the body, and Western diets are full of it in many forms. American consume nearly an entire diet that contains processed food, most of which contains highly concentrated amounts of sugar and or corn syrup. Consumption of these foods is not easy to avoid, as corn syrup is in just about everything, however, studies show that a diet high in refined sugars can lead to brain malfunction. It is not clear yet whether it is the population that is living longer is developing brain disorders such as Alzheimer more, or if there is a correlation between other health related issues from high sugar intake and brain diseases.

Key Takeaways:

  • It should be noted that one should be conscious of his sugar intake because all food products have added sugar and Alzheimer’s rates are on the increase.
  • The belief that blood sugar consumption and Alzheimer’s have a link is still in speculation territory but because of the nature of Alzheimer’s, it should be well investigated.
  • Two doctors have published findings on the standard western diet. They conclude that these diets are linked to various neurological issues and induce smaller brain size.

"However, according to various studies, consuming too much sugar can increase your risk of Alzheimer’s disease."

Did you know that over 50 pounds of fructose is consumed annually each year by the average individual? Many people are unaware that this fructose can lead to an addiction that is just as strong as alcoholism. In fact, the Journal of the American Dietetic Association specifically found that there are similar social and metabolic components when you compare alcoholism to someone with an addiction to fructose. This shows just how dangerous everyday exposure to the artificial additive can be.

Key Takeaways:

  • For sweet lovers who would not do without a sweet, it has been found that fructose that is industrially processed is as addictive and damaging as alcohol.
  • Fructose or fruit sugar is healthy when taken from fruits naturally but it becomes unhealthy when the fructose is industrially produced.
  • Fructose and glucose are sugars in the body but fructose is more damaging to the body because it can lead to glycation which causes tissue damage.

"Sweets are well-loved by millions of people across the world, with at least 50 pounds of processed fructose being consumed per year."

Over the past few years, a nutritional drink called Yerba mate has been rising in its popularity levels due to its known health benefits. A new health advantage that Yerba mate has been showing potential in, is its ability to help digestive issues over a long period of time. Yerba mate has been shown to help digestion through regulating insulin levels, and it even can possibly prevent obesity by helping our bodies burn fat at a higher rate.

Key Takeaways:

  • The body obtains the nutrients it needs through digestion which is the process of breaking down the food we eat through gut movement and released enzymes.
  • Sometimes, the things we eat do not get digested. This is not an evidence that your digestion is weak or faulty. They might be processed some other way.
  • When there are signs of bloating or constipation, then one has to take a careful look at his eating habits. They might need to be changed.

Eating too much processed sugar increases your risk of Alzheimer's

According to recent research, people that consume a lot of processed sugars run a greater risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. What happens is the high sugar levels damage a major enzyme called macrophage migration inhibitory factor. Previous research has already shown that people with diabetes are more likely to develop this disease. However, the most recent research looked at brain samples of people with and without this disease and the process of glycation. It showed that glycation damages the essential enzyme which regulates insulin and the immune response.

Key Takeaways:

  • High sugar levels damage a major enzyme called macrophage migration inhibitory factor or MIF which regulates insulin and the immune system.
  • Recent research shows two brain samples with and with out Alzheimer's disease and the process of glycation with in the body.
  • The processed sugars showed to damage the enzyme MIF which therefore resulted in greater risk of having Alzheimer's disease.

"Research has found that a high intake of processed sugar can raise the risk of Alzheimer’s disease."

Why you need sodium, and how much is necessary – too much or too little causes health issues

Even though sodium is required for basic survival, over half of Americans consume too much of it, largely because it is so heavily used in processed foods. Too much sodium can cause a number of symptoms, including swelling from water retention, excessive thirst, brain fog, and hypertension. On the other hand, too little sodium (hyponatremia) is also dangerous to your health, especially To cardiac function. To keep your sodium within healthy limits, it’s important to really know what’s in your food, and avoid processed foods as much as possible.

Key Takeaways:

  • The FDA recommends that you consume about a teaspoon of salt every day.
  • Most of the salt we consume comes via processed foods, not from the salt shaker on our tables.
  • If you want to consume less sodium, learn to read labels and be especially careful when ordering food at restaurants.

"It is no secret that most of us consume way more sodium than our bodies need."

Foods That Cause Inflammation: 5 Foods to Avoid

Inflammation serves as a guardian of your body warning you to be careful with whatever part is acting up. If inflammation is left untreated, it can cause disease. Eliminating certain foods from your diet can help keep you healthy. Processed meat, like beef jerky or bacon, can cause issues. Foods with large doses of added sugar should also be avoided. Refined carbs and food that contains vegetable and seed oil are also a no-no, as are anything with artificial trans fats.

Key Takeaways:

  • Meat itself contains healthy nutrients, but processed meats like bacon and jerky should be avoided.
  • Too much added sugar can lead to heart disease and mental disorders in addition to inflammation.
  • Choose whole-grain rices, breads, and pastas instead of processed products that cause inflammation,

Hydrochloric Acid: The Stomach Acid that Defends Against GERD, Candida & Leaky Gut

Hydrochloric Acid is a key digestive juice which tends to decrease within your body as you get older, causing a variety of digestive and non-digestive issues. Less hydrochloric acid means a less acidic gut, which can result in higher incidence of heartburn, gas, acid reflux, bacterial or yeast infections and other conditions. While some decrease in hydrochloric acid is a common part of aging, eating too much processed food, not exercising and other lifestyle issues can exacerbate it.

Key Takeaways:

  • Hydrochloric Acid is a highly acidic enzyme produced in your stomach that plays a critical role in digesting food.
  • Production of hydrochloric acid tends to decrease somewhat with age, but this issue can be exacerbated by eating too much processed food, lack of exercise and other lifestyle issues.
  • Decreased production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach can be associated with indigestion, acid reflux, gas, yeast infections and other digestive ailments.

"Additionally, not producing enough HCL can lead to many other problems, such as skin problems, including acne or rosacea, mineral deficiencies and autoimmune reactions."

Known as the "bliss molecule", anandamide is a natural way to stimulate a sense of happiness

Anandamide is a natural endocannabinoid produced in your body and found in certain foods that stimulates the same pleasure receptors as psychoactive THC. Anandamide and other endocannabinoids can help protect the brain from stress and damage, and encourage balanced moods and better consolidation of memories. The only two foods with large amounts of anandamide are (famously expensive) black truffles and chocolate, especially cacao powder and nibs, which are less processed. Several other foods, including black pepper, olive oil, grapes, broccoli, spinach and others can also raise your anandamide levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • Anandamide stimulates the same pleasure receptors that the main cannabinoid in marijuana does.
  • Endocannabinoids can shield the mind against major depression and PTSD.
  • A lack of sufficient endocannabinoids may play a significant role in diseases like Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis.

"The “bliss molecule” is a natural neurotransmitter and endocannabinoid that creates a sense of happiness, an article on Be Brain Fit stated."

Having alkaline water in your system will serve as the much-needed buffer in order to keep your vitamins and minerals in check.

Key Takeaways:

  • When there is too much hydrogen ion content in water, it dilutes its abilities to be used as an acidic buffer.
  • Alkaline water is simply a water that is higher in pH balance so it can help balance the vitamins and minerals in your body.
  • Some other benefits of alkaline water are the reduction of bone loss, as well as a boost in metabolism.

6 Steps to Get Your Cortisol Levels Under Control & Turn Down the Stress

Cortisol is a hormone that is released whenever we are under intense levels of stress. Whenever you are in a situation that causes extreme tension, your brain reacts with what is called a, "fight or flight" response. This response is what contributes to heightened cortisol levels. Elevated cortisol can lead to various health conditions, so it is important to keep it regulated by consuming an anti-inflammatory diet, and by participating in activities that reduce stress such as meditation.

Key Takeaways:

  • To keep your cortisol levels low, switch to a diet that is low in processed foods and high in nutrients, antioxidants, and fiber.
  • Relieve stress with techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, acupuncture, and spending time with nature.
  • Be sure to exercise regularly and get enough sleep to keep your hormones in balance.

"Although most think of cortisol as a bad thing — such as contributing to acne, weight gain or high blood pressure — there’s actually a lot more to cortisol levels than just our stress response and its unwanted symptoms."

Three nutrient dense superfoods that are easy on your digestion

Eating wholesome, unprocessed, nutritious “superfoods” can help promote better health and compensate for some of the other obstacles we encounter in trying to improve our diets. Moringa, for example, provides dense leaves rich in 90 vitamins, 18 amino acids and a variety of antioxidants, and is usually prepared as a fine powder that can be added to beverages. Aloe Vera is also rich in a wide variety of nutrients, including some rare ones, and freeze dried extracts of Aloe Vera can provide an excellent source of this remarkable superfood. Perhaps most promising of all is chlorella, an algae and one of the most nutritious foods in the world. The cracked cell wall and fermented variants of this rich protein source are especially easy to digest.

Key Takeaways:

  • Moringa ,also given the moniker "the miracle tree," has leaves that are easily made into powder and consumed in a smoothie.
  • Moringa has more than ninety vitamins and minerals and approximately eighteen amino acids.
  • Although better-known as a topical application, aloe vera is densely nutritious and good for the digestion, when taken internally-it's only drawback being its bitterness.

"From toxic onslaughts to poor food choices, the amount of trip wires on the road to good health can be nauseating and can paralyze people into doing nothing at all."
