The two most important vitamins for eyes are lutein and zeaxanthin.  Your body doesn’t produce either of them.  You can only get them through your diet. Protecting your vision is critical and the missteps you make (or the habits you have) today can have long-term consequences in the form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or […]

The world today is in turmoil. Diets today have hardly ever been worse. Is there a connection between the effects of poor nutrition and violence? Actually, there is.

According to recent scientific studies, your gut is considered your body’s “second brain” – literally the third branch of your central nervous system. The good bacteria in your microbiome benefit so much more than simple digestion of your food and it’s critical to care for this delicate ecosystem properly.

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) has a long and illustrious history. Indigenous to southeast Asia, this close relative of turmeric remains a common ingredient in Asian and Indian recipes, an excellent addition to teas, and is even featured in many specialty candies.
