Of all the numerous proteins in our body, we have the most collagen. It is the most abundant form of protein in our body. If forms our joints, muscles, skin and bones, hair and nails. Unfortunately, we lose our collagen at a rate of 1-2% per year after the age of 30. Therefore, wrinkles appear and our skin begins to sag. However, there is a way to fight back… Hydrolyzed Organic Collagen, like that sold at Livingtraditionallystore.com. But what about just eating more collagen rich foods like bone broth or marrow? What about gelatin? Let’s look at why effective collagen therapy must include a hydrolyzed supplement.
You might be aware that organic food is better for you than GMO options, but sometimes the price difference can be prohibitive. If you’ve ever stood in the produce section of the supermarket and asked yourself if the higher price tag on organic offerings is worth it, the results of a peer-reviewed study published recently in the International Journal of Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine will probably help make that decision a lot easier.
There is a reason why essential oils have stayed popular, both in the United States and abroad, for such a long time: They really work. Whether it is for health reasons (such as using eucalyptus oil to relieve sinus congestion) or for household care (like spritzing a room with oil of rosemary to disinfect it), the ways to use essential oil are virtually limitless. Most people tend to discover just a few essential oils that they like and stick with them.
Perhaps the most common mistake all of us make is throwing away garlic and onions skins. A lot of people think the skins are useless. However, the reality is, the skins contain more nutrients and fiber than the flesh of the vegetable. Recent research confirms that the outer skins of onions and garlic provide an exceptionally rich source of vitamins A, C and E and antioxidants which protect the skin cells from free radical damage.
Consumer interest in Collagen supplements has exploded in recent years. This is due to the large amount of scientific research that indicates powerful anti-aging properties for skin, bones and joints… all parts of our body that age impacts. Unfortunately, as we age our ability to naturally produce collagen is depleted… by age 40 our body loses more collagen than it makes and by age 60 over half of the body’s collagen is lost.
I’m sure that most of you think that brown rice is far healthier than white rice. Why? Because you’ve been told that brown rice is less refined than white rice and white rice makes you fat. Have you even wondered why Asian countries have eaten white rice for thousands of years, not brown?
Understanding your own immune system is very important. When we have certain health conditions and especially an autoimmune disease, we should realize that we don’t have a properly functioning immune system.
Autoimmune disease is a sign that the immune system is already dysfunctional. People with autoimmune diseases have a very weak immune system that is succeptible to infection, colds and flus.
Gatorade is by far the most popular sports drink in the world, but is it healthy? The owners of Gatorade, PepsiCo, and most people think it is. However, all conventional sport drinks have little to no health benefits.
If you carefully look at all the studies published on soy you will realize how bad soy is for you. And yet, most people still believe that soy products are healthy. You have to realize that everything you think you know about soy is the result of effective smart mass marketing that made people believe that soy is a superfood. And unfortunately, you’ll find that almost every packaged product is soy based.
According to the CDC, HPV (Human Papillomavirus) is not only the most commonly transmitted sexual infection in the world, but nearly all men and women will have at least 1 of the more than 150 types of HPV that are known to exist at some point. 9 out of 10 of these forms of HPV are cured naturally by the body within two years (with most people not even knowing they have it). Unfortunately, the 1 out of 10 have been associated with devastating cancers (there are over 37,000 reported HPV related cancers in the US alone per year) and morbidity’s (like warts). The most common way to spread or contract HPV is through sexual contact (penetration is not necessary as it often lives on pubic hair. For this reason, it can also be contracted from toilet seats and by wearing clothes from someone infected (even trying on clothes at a store). The FDA has approved 2 vaccines to protect against HPV contraction (Cervarix and Gardasil). Unfortunately, these vaccines have caused more problems then they may be worth. Let me explain.
