Is Vitamin D From Sunshine The Nutrient Of The Decade?

Is Vitamin D From Sunshine The Nutrient Of The Decade?
Even if you take supplements, your vitamin D requirements are unlikely to be met. In fact, in a recent study I have read, in which 1200 people were examined, more than 87% of the participants were deficient!

What's even more surprising: your levels of this important vitamin are more likely to be dangerously low!

The average winter end of vitamin D levels decreases, and any level below 20 ng / ml is considered a serious deficiency state, which will increase your risk of breast and prostate cancer and autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.

There are things that lower, even deplete, your vitamin D levels. And the 400 units of vitamin D that our government recommends are simply not enough to do the job! Once it enters the bloodstream, it spreads too much to give your cells what they need.

Vitamin D is used by all the cells in your body. It keeps cells healthy and functioning in the best way, and is ess…

Cayenne Pepper- The Healing Herb

Image
Cayenne Pepper- The Healing HerbWhen my son was diagnosed with a kidney and a doctor prescribed tablets to lower blood pressure (which only caused his blood pressure to rise), he saw a naturopath who prescribed cayenne pepper. Until then I had never heard of its benefits, particularly in reference to blood flow to and from the heart. So we investigated a little and discovered that many people around the world have surprising results when using cayenne pepper (or pepper as it is sometimes called) for simple healing, as well as to fight and eliminate some challenging health problems.

Cayenne pepper powder comes from hot peppers that are not only good for eating, but also excellent for health. It comes from the fruit or the body of the peppers, which are dried and then crushed, pulps are made and baked in cakes. They are then screened to make the spice known as cayenne pepper.
Why is Cayenne Pepper so Good for your Health?This humble medicinal spice is probably the best medicinal agent kno…

Coconut Oil - The Extraordinary Benefits of the Healthiest Oil on Earth

Coconut Oil - The Extraordinary Benefits of the Healthiest Oil on EarthCoconut Oil as Saturated Fat


Some people mistakenly believe that coconut oil must be bad for you. Why? Because it is a saturated fat and "Saturated fats are supposed to be bad for you" ... There are different types of saturated fats. Most of the saturated fat in coconut oil is easily digestible and converts to fast energy. And these types of fatty acids are less likely to cause obesity because the body uses them immediately and does not have the opportunity to be stored. Coconut oil is believed to be the healthiest oil on earth. Modern research seems to support this bold statement. Once mistakenly accused of raising cholesterol levels, doctors now use coconut oil to treat a variety of disorders. Clinical studies have shown that coconut oil has antimicrobial and antiviral properties, and is now even being used in the treatment of patients with AIDS.

In other words: coconut oil not only does not cause heart p…

Foods That Keep You Young – The Super FoodsApple In a study published by the British Medical Journal (1996), researchers found that regular consumption of apples (and other flavonoid-rich foods such as onions and tea) strongly protected against heart disease. The effects are due at least in part to apples, the content of the anti-inflammatory flavonoid quercetin (which is probably also responsible for the actions of fruits in the prevention of asthma), backed by the cholesterol-lowering action of the pectin they contain .


Berries They can be small, but the berries have a powerful blow against free radicals. Perhaps the most impressive in terms of its antioxidant potential is Acai Berry, a traditional food of the Brazilian Amazon. On the other side of the world, Goji berries have been associated with longevity and other health promoting properties in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The family favorite, strawberries and raspberries are rich in a compound called ellagic…

Osteoporosis Symptoms and TreatmentsOsteoporosis Treatments and Osteoporosis SymptomsBefore we discuss osteoporosis treatments and osteoporosis symptoms, let's briefly define what osteoporosis is....

Osteoporosis is a condition associated with loss of bone density.

Our bodies use various minerals, such as calcium, to produce strong and healthy bones. We need to ingest these crucial minerals from our diets.

We also have a small amount of calcium that circulates in our blood and provides a series of vital functions.

If we do not get enough minerals such as calcium in our diet, or through supplementation, to maintain what we need in our blood, our bodies will "steal" them from our bones and teeth, resulting in brittle and porous bones over time.

Women after menopause tend to have the highest risk of getting osteoporosis, and are often the ones who are in most need of seeking out osteoporosis treatments.

However, younger women and also men can be afflicted with this disease as wel…
