In a study of 28 older adults, those consuming a low dose of dried rosemary powder had improvements in speed of memory, which may be a predictor of cognitive function during aging
This suggests that using rosemary at normal “culinary” doses may be beneficial for your brain
Carnosic acid is one of the active ingredients in rosemary, and researchers believe it helps protect the brain by staving off free radical damage that may lead to stroke and neurodegenerative conditions
Significant beneficial effects were noted among people who drank rosemary water, including increased levels of deoxygenated blood in the brain, an indication that rosemary may facilitate oxygen extraction during times of cognitive demand
The aroma of rosemary essential oil can also give your brain a boost and may lead to a significant enhancement of performance in memory quality
The COVID-19 pandemic could be resolved in 30 days for about $2 per person, simply by taking affirmative action to raise vitamin D levels among the general public
Optimizing your vitamin D could reduce your risk of severe COVID-19 by 90% and your risk of dying from it by 96%
Data from 20 European countries found the probability of developing and dying from COVID-19 is negatively correlated with mean population vitamin D status; both probabilities reach zero at vitamin D levels above 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L)
Warnings about “excessive vitamin D intakes” being dangerous are misleading and unwarranted, as toxicity has not been demonstrated until you hit blood levels above 200 ng/mL (500 nmol/L)
Quercetin and zinc may further lower your risk of COVID-19, as well as time-restricted eating and a cyclical ketogenic diet as they both decrease insulin resistance
Ketone esters and molecular hydrogen can be useful acutely. The MATH+ Protocol appears to also be effective for those with serious disease, especially implemented early in the hyperinflammatory phase of the disease
Following a vegetarian or vegan diet may be difficult for some. After all, there are some nutrients that you can only find in animal-based food products. In addition, only a few plant-based foods are capable of providing protein, an essential nutrient that helps build and repair body tissues, among other functions. Fortunately, vegetarians and vegans can rely on dietary supplements to meet their daily protein requirements. One of the best protein sources for people who don’t eat animal products is spirulina.
The kidneys play a vital role in the normal physiology of humans. These small, bean-shaped organs are responsible for removing waste products and excess fluid from the body. They also facilitate the production of urine, regulate the body’s salt, acid and potassium levels and produce hormones that influence the function of other organs. Continue reading →
A lot of us have anxiety and fear for our futures. Maybe all of us do unless we have billions, underground shelters to run to, and years of food stored for the hard times ahead. With the pandemic has come insecurity and even confusion about who to trust and who to ignore. Depression and suicides are rising as are psychotropic drug usage, which has shown an 84 percent increase in sales in the United States. Some doctors in California have even said they are seeing more suicides than virus victims. Continue reading →
Modern society has removed itself from the process of growing and cultivating its own food, but research has demonstrated that gardening has numerous physiological and psychological benefits. Read on for a list of highly nutritious vegetables that you can easily grow in your backyard or in containers on your porchContinue reading →
Prior to modern methods of birth control, women relied on periodic abstinence to prevent pregnancies. In some underdeveloped parts of the world, these so-called natural or traditional methods of birth control are still in wide use among women.
