Eastern Europeans would customarily eat beets in their borscht and women used them to prevent pregnancy-induced anemia and birth defects due to the unique combination of iron, vitamin C, and folate. Since blood carries oxygen and nutrients, it affects every part of the human body; hence the benefits of beets are plentiful…

Keep Calm and Call Your Mom

May 14, 2017
mom

Of all the Hallmark holidays, I think most would agree that Mother’s Day is one of the most deserving. Move over National Donut Day, I have more memories of mom making kick-ass pancakes with warm maple syrup, that both warm the tummy and heart.

Introducing FloraSil: Rock Out with your Claws Out!

April 24, 2017
Silica

I think most of us would agree there is no better feeling than long nails tickling your back. I can trade almost any house chore with my hubby for back scratches. If eyes are the windows to the soul, nails are the self-expression of our self-value. They indicate hygiene, health, and creativity. (Yes, it’s normal to be checking out your nails right now.) And how about the six-word sentence that can ruin your morning? “I’m having a bad hair day.”…

Because when it comes to other types of veins, such as varicose, we are allowed to be vain as all heck! True, sometimes it may just be a cosmetic bother with spider veins creating little webs on the backs of our legs, but other times they can cause real discomfort, swelling, and soreness. Anytime…

There’s much confusion as to what digestive enzymes are versus probiotics, since both play key roles in gut and digestive health. People ask all the time: Should I be taking probiotics or enzymes?
