One of the most typical things I see on the lab testing I do is mitochondrial dysfunction. Now if your last biology class was decades ago, this might seem a bit iffy to you. So here is the deal on our mitochondria in short: our mitochondria power the biochemical reactions in our cells.When our mitochondria are not functioning at their peak, we feel tired, lethargic and age quicker.
Did you know that our bones act as appetite-mediators? Yes, we have heard that eating dairy and calcium seems to help weight-loss, but why is that exactly? Well part of the reason is now clear: our bones send messengers that cross the blood-brain barrier to let the brain know that sufficient nutrients have been absorbed to keep the bone-building process going.
Goji berries are in a category of foods known as tonic herbs. These powerful plants have the potential to penetrate deep into the body, affecting our physical, mental and even spiritual development. Yes, there is much more to this berry than just its recognized superfood power due to its antioxidant contents.
Make herbs a part of your daily self-care to nourish your body+soul by setting up a few staple superfoods that you can easy throw in the blender in the morning. Supplements are expensive, even the cheapest no-name brands - because stuff that doesn't work is always expensive no matter the cost; simply because most are loaded with synthetic and gut-damaging fillers in addition to having poor bioavailability.
When was the last time you looked at the ingredient label of your food, rather than the calorie count?
I don't count calories, because, well, calories don't count. No one knows exactly what your body burns daily - and the brain actually burns the most energy, that is if you engage in creative thinking (which is rarely done looking at the calorie counter on the treadmill btw.). Calories are not created equal in how your body responds to them and burns them.
I love whey, and especially because it is a broad-spectrum superfood - meaning there is not an ailment that it doesn't cater for. The only exception being for hypersensitive biochemistry types, which will not be able to tolerate the dairy protein present. The majority of those of us dealing just with simple dairy sensitivity do well with whey. And it's delicious as a banana, coconut and whey smoothie.
Superfoods are the way to go if you want to provide yourself with a broad spectrum of nutrients that will cater for your every health need, bite by bite. They are usually higher in nutrients than your standard synthetic supplement and the bioavailability is unsurpassed. If you are not already eating these 5 superfoods, consider adding in a couple on a daily basis as a health insurance. This is the closest we get to a "magic pill".
Cellulite is a reflection of the state of your liver and lymph system. Your liver and lymph are the key detoxifier organs in your body and when they get sluggish, all the toxins tend to accumulate in fatty tissue which cause the fat cells to swell up - resulting in that bumpy appearance.
