I don’t know what’s worse: a product full of GMOs and chemically-derived additives that proudly lauds its healthfulness and humanitarian benefits, or, a manufacturer that blatantly hides the fact they are using GMO ingredients by keeping them off the label?
Apples of course have a reputation for keeping the doctor away and now science finds that both apples and pears may keep strokes away. In the first study of the color of produce, Dutch researchers found that the white flesh of fruits and vegetables may protect against stroke. Other colors, not so much.
Insulin resistance is a state, where cells cannot take properly sugar from blood to use it as an energy source. Cells become resistant to the action of insulin. It therefore takes more insulin to keep blood sugar in balance. People with insulin resistance syndrome will consequently have normal blood sugar levels but elevated insulin level
The microbes in the soil make the hidden treasure called fulvic acid, the miracle of life. Our bodies need it for optimal health. Fulvic acid is not a vitamin or a mineral and cannot be synthesized
It is a little known and under-appreciated fact that all humans are born with a serious, life-threatening genetic defect: namely, the inability to manufacture Vitamin C. Vitamin C, in fact, has significant value in disease prevention and treatment, according to research gathered from the National Library of Medicine
Are paleo recommendations to avoid grains and legumes due to anti-nutrient content predicated in science or founded in fear mongering? An evidence-based analysis of the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to lectins, phytates, and autoimmune disease

A study published in the May, 2015 issue of the Archives of Medical Research indicates that it can help patients with ulcerative colitis
Everyone wants to stave-off the cognitive decline that is routinely experienced as we age. What if that decline wasn’t inevitable? As a recent study shows, there is a simple, inexpensive supplement that not only supports cognitive functions as we age, it can help restore brain function impaired during stroke
Garlic is a potent vegetable that works to relax blood vessels in a number of ways, making it one of the best natural remedies for high blood pressure
