You’ve likely heard the talk around probiotics for gut health—from health blogs, your doctor, or even your local health food store associate. Maybe you even take one now and then. But what are they, and do they actually work?
More and more people are talking about the health benefits of a well-functioning gut microbiome (also known as gut flora)—and its influence over the entire body. If you nourish, protect, and heal your gut, your body responds in kind.
Many of us have heard of the essential mineral magnesium but may not be aware that magnesium plays an important physiological role in many different bodily processes—with over 300 enzymes dependent on magnesium for proper functioning and regulation. Magnesium is a vital component of health, and many studies have found that magnesium deficiency can lead to a range of health problems. However, a recent study has shown that regular consumption of magnesium-rich foods can actually help prevent serious health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
Vitamin C is a common vitamin that your mom probably told you to take to not get sick. It is one of the most searched vitamins online. Do you know why?
Other than the fact there are so many uses for it, it helps your entire body, and it has two names (the other being ascorbic acid,) there can’t be much to know… right?
Multivitamins are popular dietary supplements with more than 1/3 of all Americans taking them; sales in the U.S. amounted to about $5.7 billion.
The vitamins that your body needs vary each day and are important to its functioning. You can get them in a variety of ways, and your body absorbs each in different ways.
If you’ve tried every diet and weight loss strategy under the sun and still can’t drop pounds, it might have as much to do with what’s lurking in your gut as what’s sitting on your plate. A new study published in the International Journal of Obesity found that the balance of bacteria in your microbiome, which resides in your gastrointestinal tract, may determine your success or failure on any diet—in some cases more so than your food choices.
Cod liver oil – doesn’t sound very appetizing, we know. However, long gone are the days of supplementing the diet with fresh fish livers. Today it is available in pill form from almost any drug store. This natural supplement has been revered for centuries now. Originally, it was used by Europeans to boost immunity throughout the long, dark winter months.
Have you noticed that some people age more quickly and appear to be more susceptible to disease than others? Do you hope to be one of the lucky ones who “age well”?
You can’t stop the years from adding up, but you can improve your odds of avoiding or delaying the degenerative conditions associated with aging ― wrinkled skin, weight gain, brittle bones, arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, dementia and more.
A trip to the supermarket for groceries can turn into a daunting task when faced with a dozen aisles stocked with packaged foods claiming to be “healthy.” Nutritional information on labels and restaurant menus can be incredibly deceiving, and many of the health claims on these foods are nothing but a marketing gimmick—with many packaged foods being the furthest thing from healthy. Choosing to eat a salad at a café can pack on more calories than a cheeseburger due to rich, creamy dressings and toppings. Many popular “health” foods like granola bars are actually full of processed ingredients, along with excess salt, sugar, and calories. Drinks like artificially flavored fruit juices have little or no nutritional value and contain little if any “real” fruit—with many popular drinks just packing on the empty calories and even exceeding the daily recommended limit of sugar in some cases.
