Vitamin K2: The Missing Nutrient For Heart And Bone Health 

Most people have heard about vitamin K but few know that it comes in two forms: Vitamin K1 and Vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 is one of the vitamins that researchers are finding out are great for your bone health and for your heart. It is as important as taking calcium when it comes to improving bone health. Research has found a link between vitamin K2 and calcium. It turns out that without the addition of vitamin K2 in your diet or as a supplement, you can’t regulate calcium levels and bone health suffers. In addition, those who have decreased levels of vitamin K2 in the diet put themselves at a greater risk of atherosclerosis and heart disease. People who have insufficient calcium in their bones get osteoporosis...

Are All Calories Created Equal?

Interestingly, the calories your body takes in may not be the same as the calories your body uses. A 2500 calorie per day diet may cause some people to gain weight, while a 2500 calorie per day diet consisting of different foods may cause no weight gain or even a weight loss. It all depends on how the calories are counted and on how your body digests those calories. How Calorie Count Is Measured Calories are the units of energy we use every day to measure the food intake we eat. One calorie is the amount of energy necessary to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius at normal atmospheric pressure. Calories In Food When we talk about calories in food, we are actually...

Dirty Dozen List 2017 & the Clean Fifteen 2017 List

The Environmental Working Group released it’s 2017 Dirty Dozen list and it highlights the importance that there is still a lot of work to do when it comes to cleaning up the food chain. This year, the annual report found that almost 70 percent of 48 non-organic samples tested positive for at least one pesticide. (In many cases, the numbers were much higher.) And get this - a single strawberry sample harbored 20 different pesticide residues. And while spinach nutrition is loaded with calcium and vitamins, there’s one reason to always try to choose organic. Researchers found DDT, a neurotoxic insecticide banned in the U.S., in an alarming number of samples. A “Clean 15” list is also included in the report, identifying the non-organic produce least likely to be contaminated with pesticide...

Why Juices and Smoothies Aren’t As Healthy As You Think

Juices and smoothies can be healthy either as a supplement to a meal or meal replacement, but only if you know what ingredients went into making them. With store-bought smoothies and juices, there can be four issues: Portion size  As a meal replacement, 473 ml is a serving; 237 ml if drunk as part of a meal. But some smoothie lovers have portions up to 1900 ml on their menu. That is anywhere from 4 to 8 times as much as what is considered a portion. The volume is one thing, but you are also getting way more calories than you need. Added sugar  At home, you can control the amount of sugar you add, if any. Keep in mind there is naturally occurring sugar in the fruit, milk and...

[caption id="attachment_4265" align="alignright" width="300"]       St Mary's Thistle (Silybum marianum)[/caption] Food and drink, routinely ingested in the mouth and digested in the stomach would actually be incredibly poisonous for us if we just injected it directly into our blood stream.  That’s why we need a healthy functioning Liver - one of our body’s most important organs. A liver which is not functioning correctly results in digestive problems such as acid reflux, indigestion, poor protein or fat digestion, bloating, pain, sluggishness, low bile production and skin problems such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and skin rashes.  In addition, symptoms of an overburdened or sluggish liver will result in emotional problems such as anger, low tolerance, mood swings, depression, anxiety, inability to cope or a “wired but tired”...
