Grape Seed Extract: The Goodness of Grapes

Oh, grapes! What would we do without grapes? There’d be no wine, no grape jelly, no raisins, no grape gazpacho. There would be nothing to stomp to a pulp in huge vats littering vineyards throughout the country, nothing to lazily pop into our mouths as we’re fanned with giant palm fronds. We’d be missing the […]

What’s Your Sexual Motivation?

Why have sex? I’m sure you just thought of at least two or three good reasons for having sex. We’ve all got a few filed away, and in “the moment”, a few more generally come to mind. These reasons can range from the sweet and romantic to the cruel and humiliating. Hopefully, yours fall into […]

Tap Is the New Bottled

Face it. Bottled water is so last year. It just isn’t cool to walk around with a disposable bottle anymore. Everyday the bottled water resistance builds, and the love for tap follows suit. More and more people are saving their money and turning on the faucet when they’re thirsty. And many of them prefer the […]

Do You Measure Up?

Congratulations! You’ve finally reached the point where stepping onto the scale isn’t followed by deep depression and a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. You are at your goal weight. Okay, maybe you don’t look exactly as you’d imagined. There’s still a rather nice bulge at the bottom of your belly. But, hey, who cares? The […]

Buddy Bear: A Big Help from a Little Friend

Let’s be honest, very few six year olds take fiber, enzymes and fatty acids into consideration when weighing their snack options. And when it comes to taking care of constipation and nutrient absorption, well, forget about it. Those are pretty low on the importance list for your normal child. In fact, I doubt they’re even […]

Bill’s Lovin’ It

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has done a lot of good since its inception in 2000. Based on the belief that all human lives are equal, it has worked towards reducing existing inequities in the United States and the rest of the world. In underdeveloped countries, the foundation specifically focuses on providing medical support […]

Whey Outta The Park – How Protein Can Help On and Off the Athletic Field

My younger cousin recently questioned why he couldn’t put on weight? He claimed he wanted to be able to bulk up 15 to 20 lbs by the time his high schools spring baseball season got underway. He said he’d been lifting weights and eating his peas and carrots. I laughed and told him that the […]

BHT In Our Foods? Mmmm… Not So Good!

It’s been banned in Japan since 1958, yet it’s used in numerous food products throughout the United States.  It lurks in plastic packaging, processed foods and children’s pre-packaged lunches.  You may not even know it’s there, but you should.  It’s an antioxidant food additive, more often termed a preservative in consumer lingo.  It’s BHT, and […]

Food Allergies and Intolerance

Food, one of America’s greatest passions, is often overlooked as the culprit for a vast amount of health issues. Food allergies are left undiagnosed in millions of people, symptoms left unidentified or misdiagnosed. A food allergy is brought on by the immune system in response to a particular item that is introduced into the body. […]

PB 8 Pro-Biotic Acidophilus

Several years ago, a new craze developed where nearly everyone became obsessed with anti-bacterial soap. Aside from washing your hands during the appropriately designated times, everyone seemed to be carrying around those mini bottles of antibacterial gel and lotion. Yet, we were soon informed that over use of antibacterial products could potentially eliminate good bacteria. […]

United States vs. China

China’s waterways are smeared with the dense tint of pollution, their air thick with smog. Chinese women are facing an increased risk of breast cancer.  But it’s not for the reason you think.  The increase of breast cancer in Asian women is associated with the westernization of their diet.  Meat, sugars and all those processed […]

So Sweet! Stevia, Coca Cola and Cargill

I’m torn when it comes to promoting natural products. Naturally occurring and naturally grown still cannot signify beyond a shadow of a doubt that negative repercussions won’t occur. Yet many people do assume that natural means 100 percent healthful. But in fact, whether made by man or nature, all products have the potential for hazard, […]
