The Truth about Saturated Fats (Specifically How Good Coconut Oil Is…)

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Health Foods,Superfoods,Supplements at 1:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

The words “Saturated Fats” may scare many people due to its “bad reputation” but did you know that not all saturated fats are actually bad for you?

In fact, some saturated fats, such as the ones found in coconut oil, are good for your health! It may be surprising to you that the naturally occurring saturated fat in coconut oil actually has health benefits but studies have shown that it can help promoting heart health and weight loss, supporting the immune system, boosting up metabolism, and maintaining proper function of the thyroid gland.

About 50 percent of the fat content in coconut oil is a fat rarely found in nature called lauric acid that the body converts into monolaurin, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-protozoa properties.

On the other hand, it is important to remember that unsaturated fats are the ones known to cause heart disease, not the naturally occurring coconut oil saturated fats. Polyunsaturated fats in vegetable and seed oils encourage the formation of blood clots by increasing platelet stickiness, unlike that, coconut oil helps to promote normal platelet function.

For cooking purposes, coconut oil is a much healthier choice and should be used instead of butter, olive oil, vegetable oil, margarine, or any other oil. Pure virgin coconut oil contains 92% saturated fats, and only 1% Omega-6, the fat Americans get way too much of, and best of all, does not contain any cholesterol.

Additionally, anything with the words “trans fats” should be the ones to be avoided at all times as these unsaturated fats are artificially manipulated into saturated fats and have been associated with a variety of health dangers.

5 Foods to Help Combat Allergies

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Health Foods,Nutrition at 2:05 pm | By: Jeremy Michael

 

A proper diet and nutrition is the foundation for all health care. However, food can be more than a foundation; food is medicine.  Today we are going to talk about foods that can help combat seasonal allergies. Foods rich in Vitamin C, Antioxidants, and Folic acid can help to reduce the inflammation associated with seasonal allergies. Below are some super foods to add into your springtime regimen to help fight off those unwanted seasonal allergy changes. While proper diet and nutrition is important, it is also important to make sure you avoid any food allergies or sensitivities that you may have.

  • Cruciferous Vegetables – Not only do cruciferous vegetables like Kale and Broccoli aid in the detoxification pathway, but research from the University of California School of Medicine found that cruciferous vegetables can play a key role in preventing allergy symptoms and asthma. Researchers found, Sulforaphane, a chemical in broccoli, triggers an increase of antioxidant enzymes in the human airway that offers protection against the numerous free radicals that we inhale every day in our polluted air. Not to mention foods like broccoli and kale are also high in Vitamin C a natural antihistamine.
  • Apples – In addition to Vitamin C apples also contain high amounts of quercetin. Apples supply roughly 4 milligrams of quercetin for every 100 grams. Quercetin is one of the most important alternative remedies when it comes to allergies because of its ability to stabilize mast cells, which release histamine. When it comes to purchasing your apples, make sure they are organic, as apples are the #1 Food on the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen.
  • Onions and Garlic like apples are full of quercetin. Quercetin, as mentioned above works similar to many of the prescription drugs on the market today by acting like an anti-histamine. Onions contain roughly 100 milligrams of quercetin per 3-1/2 ounces. Onions and garlic also help to regulate and boost our immune system, which helps to fight off those pesky allergies.
  • Citrus Fruits – Fruits like oranges, grapefruit, lemons and limes contain large doses of Vitamin C. One large orange contains roughly 100mg of Vitamin C. On top of being packed with Vitamin C lemons and other citrus fruits also contain high levels of antioxidants.
  • Fresh Fish – Fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, anchovies & sardines are high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Omega 3 Fatty Acids help combat the inflammation associated with seasonal allergies. A German study that was published in the journal of Allergy, found that peoples whose diets were rich in omega-3 fatty acids were less likely to suffer allergy symptoms.

Choosing the Right Oil for Your Skin Problem

Filed Under: Anti-Aging,Beauty,Personal Care at 8:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Choosing the right oil for your skin issue can be difficult. Many of the common skin problems can be treated with natural products, particularly oils, but which one is the best, the most recommended for each and every skin issue? Here’s a quick guide to help you choose the right oil for your skin type and issue.

Aging: Rosehip Oil

If you are looking for a natural alternative to slow down the aging process, rosehip oil is likely your best choice. Rosehip oil is truly an anti-aging elixir backed by clinical studies that confirm its effectiveness at promoting youthful skin and improving the appearance of scars, stretch marks, sun damage, wrinkles, and fine lines.

Eczema: Almond Oil

When you have eczema, the skin does not produce as many fats and oils and cannot retain water as it normally would. The result of this process is dry skin. Sweet almond oil is an excellent emollient and nourishes dry skin, and can be a great product to reduce the itching caused by eczema.

Acne: Jojoba Oil

If you are searching for a product that can help acne-prone skin, jojoba oil is the answer. According to Acne.org, jojoba oil is closer to the oil on human skin, sebum, than other vegetable oils, making it an ideal ingredient in skin products. Jojoba oil has proven anti-inflammatory properties which may be helpful for inflammatory conditions such as acne, This non-comedogenic liquid wax is often used for moisturizing, spot treating and cleansing acne-prone skin. Jojoba oil regulates oily skin by making the skin think that it has already produced enough oil.

Wounds, Skin Inflammation: Calendula Oil

Calendula oil has great anti-inflammatory and vulnerary action, making it helpful with stubborn wounds, inflammation, as well as ulcers, bed sores, varicose veins, rashes, and related conditions. Additionally, calendula oil is a great moisturizer for dry skin and for severely chapped or split skin as it soothes the area and reduces the pain.

Fungal Infections: Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil has become one of the most popular personal care products in recent years as this multi-use product can be applied to the skin to treat a variety of infections. However, treating fungal infections of the nail (onychomycosis) is perhaps the most effective way to use tea tree oil as this product can efficiently reduce infection quickly.

5 Benefits of CoQ10

Filed Under: Supplements at 9:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

Coenzyme 10 is an antioxidant used to protect the cells from free radical damage. It’s also known as ubiquinone, a vital nutrient for your body’s daily function. When you’re young, your body has no problem converting CoQ10 to its reduced form, ubiquinol. However, as we age, it becomes more difficult for this process to happen. Although you can get in in many foods, you should take a supplement as well. Research has shown it can have many benefits like the ones listed below.

Heart Health – Reasearch suggests that CoQ10 may be effective for chronic heart failure. A ten-year study published in the European Journal of Heart Failure demonstrated that CoQ10 dramatically improves survival in severe heart failure patients.

Fertility – Coenzyme Q 10 is thought help with infertility by improving egg quality and function and may decrease the chances of pregnancy loss and acting as a potent antioxidant.

Chemotherapy – Some studies suggest that taking CoQ10 supplements may help reduce chemotherapy-related ailments.

Immune Booster – Our thymus gland manages our immune system. As we age, it decreases in size and causes immune dysfunction. A CoQ10 supplement can restore the thymus back to proper function. One other study demonstrated that coenzyme Q10 was important in the function of both T-cells and macrophage – two types of immune cells.

Cellular Function – Most cellular processes require energy (ATP) and CoQ10 is essential for good health. It’s distributed throughout the cell membrane and serves as a membrane antioxidant.

Don’t Let Allergies Slow You Down! Find Relief with Homeopathic Medicines

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Homeopathy at 9:57 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

Spring has officially arrived, and so has the dreaded allergy season! Few problems affect more people in the United States than allergies. In 2012, 17.6 million adults and 6.6 million children reported having hay fever symptoms in the past 12 months.1-2 Yet, the drawbacks of usual approaches to allergy symptoms tend to leave these sufferers dissatisfied. Antihistamines can make people drowsy. Decongestants can have rebound effects. Corticosteroids may affect growth in children and should not be used long-term. Allergy shots require years of expensive doctor visits and often don’t work well despite the investment of time and money. Many American allergy sufferers think there are only two choices when they are hit with nasal congestion, watery eyes, sneezing and wheezing—take an over-the-counter or prescription medication that bears warnings about side effects, or simply suffer.

Fortunately, homeopathic medicines, such as Sabadil® and Sinusalia®, offer a reliable, low-cost third choice when properly matched with an individual’s symptoms.

Sabadil Tablets and Children’s Sabadil® Pellets work naturally with your body to temporarily relieve hay fever and other upper respiratory allergy symptoms including itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose, and itchy throat and nose.* These quick-dissolving tablets and pellets are recommended for everyone ages 2 and up.

Sinusalia Tablets and Pellets temporarily relieve nasal congestion, sinus pain and headache due to the common cold or allergies. These quick-dissolving tablets and pellets are recommended for everyone ages 6 and up.

Both medicines are ideal choices for appropriately-aged children, seniors taking other medications, and busy adults who need to remain alert. They do not cause drowsiness or interact with other medications. They’re also non-habit forming, and there’s no risk of overdose. Sabadil and Sinusalia work best when taken at the first sign of allergies to help nip those symptoms in the bud.

3. Oysters

If you don’t eat red meat at all, no problem. Oysters are full of iron as well as other minerals such as zinc and magnesium. About a dozens of oysters is a good, recommended portion for a great dose of iron.

CoQ10 vs. Ubiquinol: What’s the Difference?

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Supplements at 8:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Do you know the difference between CoQ10 and Ubiquinol? If you answered no, you are not alone. Many people ask themselves the very same question when shopping for supplements. So, to make things a little bit easier for you, here is a quick overview between CoQ10 vs. Ubiquinol: what’s the difference?

CoQ10 (coenzyme Q10) is a fat-soluble nutrient produced naturally by our bodies. CoQ10 is concentrated in organs that are essential to the process of producing cellular energy such as the heart, liver, muscles and kidneys. CoQ10 is found inside the mitochondria where energy production occurs. It acts as an electron acceptor or donor in the chain of reactions that lead to energy production.

In the body, CoQ10 exists either in its oxidized form, known as ubiquinone, or in its reduced form,  known as ubiquinol. When oxidized CoQ10 is used by the body, it becomes ubiquinol. In the same way, reduced CoQ10 becomes ubiquinone when it carries out its role in the body. Essentially, when you take CoQ10, your body converts it to the active form, ubiquinol.

Regardless of what form of CoQ10 you take as a supplement, the body is able to convert the consumed form to the other form as needed. For example, if you take a reduced CoQ10 supplement (ubiquinol), the body can convert the reduced CoQ10 (ubiquinol) to the oxidized CoQ10 (ubiquinone) and vice versa. This conversion takes place to maintain a state of equilibrium between reduced CoQ10 (ubiquinol) and oxidized CoQ10 (ubiquinone).

In resume, ubiquinone and ubiquinol are effective and essential to important processes in the human body, since both can be reduced or oxidized to form the other, they are both considered excellent products to maintain good health.

3 Efficient Natural Energy Boosters

Filed Under: Health Foods,Herbs,Supplements at 6:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

If you are constantly feeling tired and can’t seem to boost your energy levels, a few natural products might be just what you need. Guaraná, maca, and ginseng have been top-selling energy enhancers for many years as studies have shown that these herbal products are efficient in providing a boost in energy levels. So, let’s learn a little more about these 3 efficient natural energy boosters.

Guaraná 

Guaraná is originally from the Amazon region and its products are popular in Brazil and other South America countries. Loaded with caffeine, one seed of guaraná contains five times more caffeine than an average coffee bean. Available in supplement form, this tropical fruit is also used to make energy drinks as well as soft drinks but with significantly lower levels of caffeine. A good number of natural energy supplements contain guaraná in formulas designed for fat burner, weight-loss, athletic performance enhancers, and products to stimulate the mental function.

Maca

Maca products are known to promote more energy as well as hormonal balance. This superfood has been used for centuries by the native people in the Andes of Peru for a variety of health benefits. Maca root is not only known to boost energy levels but it is also believed to increase sex drive and improve fertility, increasing semen volume and sperm counts. Maca contains high levels of protein, fat and minerals and it’s eaten baked, dried or mixed with vegetables.

Ginseng

Ginseng is one of the most popular herbal supplements due to its long list of health benefits. Research has suggested that the root of the ginseng plant (Panax ginseng) is helpful to improve energy levels and is also beneficial to control blood sugar levels. Ginseng provides sustainable energy by utilizing your body’s own energy resources as it has the ability to boost energy by ramping up ATP production.

Spring Beauty Sale – Fatal Attraction: Chemicals to avoid in your Cosmetics

Filed Under: Beauty,General Wellness & Wellbeing,Personal Care at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Cosmetics have been popular products for years but this attraction to beauty products may be risky. Many products contain hazardous chemicals ingredients that can be dangerous to your health. Here’s a list of 7 chemicals to avoid in your cosmetics.

1. Parabens: commonly used in makeup and listed as methyl, propyl, butyl and ethyl paraben, this toxic ingredient may interfere with hormone function and it has been associated with breast cancer. Found in nearly 90% of all products on the market, parabens are also used in lotions, scrubs, shampoos, and conditioners.

2. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES): used in cosmetics as a detergent, SLES can be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane, which may cause cancer, as well as a variety of other issues such as eye irritations, skin rashes, hair loss, scalp scurf similar to dandruff, and allergic reactions. Additionally, SLS may damage liver, and affect the respiratory tract.

3. Petrolatum: avoid this particular ingredient at all costs. Used in make-up products, lip balm, lipstick, and skin care products, petrolatum is a mineral oil jelly used as a barrier to lock moisture in the skin in a variety of moisturizers.  This chemical is derivative of petroleum and crude oil and it is known as an endocrine disruptor and a carcinogen. Healthy skin needs to take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. Instead, this chemical may suffocate the skin.

4. Triclosan: Found in many cosmetic products including anti-bacterial soap, shampoo, facial cleanser, toothpaste and deodorant, triclosan has antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties. However, this chemical is a known endocrine and thyroid disrupter.

5. Siloxanes (Cyclomethicone): these silicone-based compounds are used in cosmetics and facial treatments to soften, smooth, and moisten but it may interfere with hormone function, impair human fertility, and damage the liver.

6. Polyethylene Glycol (PEGs): these petroleum-based compounds that are widely used in cosmetics as thickeners, solvents, softeners, and moisture-carriers. Commonly used as cosmetic cream bases, PEGs are easily absorbed through the skin and may be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane, which can cause cancer, as well as lead, nickel and arsenic.

7. Mineral Oil: often used in beauty treatments products, mineral oil is a petroleum by-product which may clog the pores and interferes with the skin’s ability to eliminate toxins, promoting acne and other disorders. It may slows down skin function and cell development, resulting in premature aging. Its solvent properties are used on cleansers to remove oil-based.
