Causes of Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamins play an incredible role in our bodies’ most complex processes, and vitamin D (which is actually a hormone) is one of the biggest superheroes in the vitamin squad! This fat-soluble vitamin, which is sometimes called the sunshine vitamin because it comes from the body’s interaction with the sun, helps the body battle disease, assist in weight loss and stabilize the mood. But, for a variety of reasons we’ll cover below, many people don’t get enough vitamin D, leading to vitamin D deficiency or D-ficiency. If you have signs of a weak immune system, have difficulty losing weight or battle depression, boosting your vitamin D intake through supplements and safe sun exposure may be a great first step in treatment.

Why Vitamin D Matters

So why is vitamin D so important? The body requires this vitamin to absorb calcium and grow a strong, healthy musculoskeletal system, and not getting enough can cause soft, fragile and misshapen bones and rickets disease in children. According to the National Institutes of Health, studies indicate that low vitamin D levels are associated with serious and life-threatening diseases, including colon cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment and asthma in children.

Vitamin D is also thought to help reduce depression and anxiety. Studies show a significant connection between vitamin D and mental health, indicating that lower vitamin D levels correlate with higher levels of depression. There is also thought to be a connection between Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)—a disorder triggering depression due to

The Best Ways to Consume More Probiotics

 

The body is filled with bacteria. Live bacteria and yeasts are beneficial for overall health and though probiotics are most commonly bacteria, they can also survive and operate as yeast. Maintaining a balance of both good and bad bacteria is important for maintaining proper function of many body systems, specifically in regards to oral and digestive health.

According to our Hallelujah Acres experts, there are two ways to obtain these necessary microorganisms: Either from fermented food sources or by taking a high quality supplement.

Consuming Probiotics Naturally
For followers of the primarily raw, plant-based Genesis 1:29 diet, cultured foods are a great way to consume probiotics naturally.

“Cultured foods are a great source of probiotics that don’t kill live enzymes.”

According to our experts, cultured foods are a great source of probiotics as they are a way to consume the hard-to-absorb nutrients from raw foods, while still keeping the enzymes alive. This is because there is no heat involved in the fermenting process – also known as culturing. Thus, the enzymes remain and a number of other health benefits are also added. Improving digestion, cultured vegetables can also provide omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins and many bioavailable minerals and vitamins.

Common cultured foods include sauerkraut made from fermented cabbage, pickles and tempeh, according to the Global Healing Center. Also popular for fermenting are carrots, kale, celery, turnips, onions, leeks, beans and parsnips.

However, though keeping a balance of bacteria is crucial for proper functioning, it is not always viable today. Not everyone is able to get an adequate amount of fermented food in their diet.

“From creation, the human body was designed to have a harmonious relationship with bacteria,” explained Hallelujah Health Acres health expert Olin Idol. “Bacteria are not our enemy in general. They reside on our skin, in our bodies, most predominately in our colon where they perform a host of functions – the production of B12 being one of them. Unfortunately, our diets and living conditions today are not conducive to supporting a healthy balance of these friendly bacteria. Rather than being in predominance, [bacteria] often fall to a minority and are unable to carry out the required functions, especially the production of B12.”

Probiotic Supplements
Did you know that there should be close to three pounds of bacteria in a healthy functioning intestinal tract? Though it may sound like a lot, it’s what’s needed to aid in the day-to-day function and maintenance of your immune system, according to “Unravel the Mystery” by Ann Malkmus. And of those three pounds of bacteria, 85 percent should be “friendly” flora. Though as Idol explained above, the production of B12 is no longer predominant in most Americans.

“Thus, we need to rebuild our friendly flora through discrete probiotic supplementation and raw fermented foods or we need to supplement with vitamin B12,” said Idol.

If you’re looking for a B12 supplement, Hallelujah Acre’s B-Flax-D is a great choice. Regular use of B-Flax-D can help ensure that you are obtaining a sufficient amount of vitamin B12, which helps in healthy cell formation, aids in preventing anemia and nerve damage and serves as an important component of overall health.

If you're not getting enough probiotics through cultured foods such as sauerkraut, probiotic supplements are key.If you’re not getting enough probiotics through cultured foods such as sauerkraut, probiotic supplements are key.

Another option is probiotic supplements, which must have a high level of bacteria, such as our Professional Strength Probiotics. While many products available today merely claim that their capsules will make it all the way through the colon where they are intended to go, very few do. The Hallelujah Diet® Professional Strength Probiotic however, does in fact deliver up to 60 percent of its bacteria to the colon. Coating the GI tract with immune-fighting bacteria, these capsules can help to shield you from the bad bacteria that cause disease. Moreover, they’ll help you relieve discomfort related to the digestive system.

4 Ways to Protect Your Liver

Your liver is one of the largest and most important organs in your body. According to the Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care, the liver converts the nutrients in foods you consume into beneficial proteins and substances for cells when they need them. Additionally, it takes unnatural, toxic substances – such as alcohol – and turns them into harmless materials before they disperse throughout the body.

Unfortunately, 3.9 million adults were diagnosed with liver disease in 2015 according to a national health survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Of those diagnoses, deaths totaled 40,326. Common causes of the disease include viruses, alcohol use and obesity.

“Common causes of liver disease include viruses, alcohol use and obesity.”

Because the liver plays such a vital role in keeping your body in top shape, it’s important to give it the same love and care it provides for you. Here are four natural ways to protect your liver:

1. Cut the Unhealthy Habits
The liver is the body’s natural filtration system. When you follow bad habits, this critical organ becomes overworked and may not be able to process toxins efficiently. Drinking alcohol, for example, can disrupt the metabolism of the liver and lead to inflammation that causes scarring, also known as cirrhosis. Cutting this unhealthy habit will put less pressure on your liver and keep it in better shape.

2. Drink Coffee
Drinking a cup of coffee can give you that jolt of energy you crave in the

How to Add Flavor to Bland Food

A 6 step guide for how you can liven food when it tastes bland!

There’s nothing worse than taking the time to prepare a meal only to end up hating it and ordering takeout anyway. Unfortunately, we’ve all been there at least once before.

But how do you liven food when it tastes bad? Fortunately, we have a few tricks up our sleeves. The next time you’re cooking at home and things seem to go south real fast, we’ve got you covered.

We’re teaching you how to turn things around by using seasonings, spices, tips, and tricks to liven your food when it just tastes too bland to enjoy.

How To Liven A Bland Dish

We’ve all had that moment where we just can’t seem to get a dish right. Next time, instead of just giving up, we want you to know exactly how to make adjustments and turn things around all on your own.

We’re breaking this down step by step so the next time you’re left with a boring, seemingly tasteless dish, you’ll know exactly what to do!

Step 1: What Is The Texture Like?

First things first, how’s the texture?

The texture of a dish is extremely important for a few different reasons. Firstly, when we’re making something and anticipating it’s going to have one texture and it ends up with another, this can immediately turn us off from the item before even tasting the flavor.

The Remarkable Antioxidant Benefits of Liposomal Vitamin C

Most people know that vitamin C is essential for proper immune function. It can protect against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, pregnancy health complications, eye disease, skin wrinkling…the list goes on. But did you know that the body cannot produce this essential vitamin on its own? It also doesn’t store vitamin C, making it critical to consider supplementation. Since you can’t rely on your body to produce, store or synthesize this vitamin, you must get it from your food or from dietary supplements. One great source is a recently developed, remarkable option: liposomal vitamin C.

Despite the advantages of taking a multivitamin or getting your vitamin C through various nutritious foods, liposomal vitamin C offers another way to absorb this immune-boosting vitamin, and it may be the most beneficial. It’s a lipid-encapsulated form of vitamin C that is shuttled without digestion into the bloodstream, right into the cells of the body. This makes it the most absorbable form of the vitamin available.

“Fall is on it’s way and flu season is near. Vitamin C is necessary.”

Summer’s coming to an end and fall is on its way, which means flu season is near. Now’s the perfect time to educate yourself about vitamin C and learn about the best way to boost your immunity and support healthy aging. In this article, we’ll take a deep dive into liposomal supplements, the benefits of liposomal vitamin C and some of the ways to incorporate more vitamin C-rich foods into your eating

Top Summer Superfoods of the Garden

As the summer winds down and the farmer’s markets ramp up, we thought you would enjoy a little guidance on which of the fruits and veggies you find at the farmer’s markets would be the best to consume while they are in season:

Tomatoes

These garden greats grow en masse in summertime and you can just taste their goodness. Their high levels of the antioxidant lycopene are known for possible prevention of several types of cancers, so eat them up this and every summer. The summer tomatoes have the best flavor you will ever find.

Watermelon

She’s the Queen of summer fruits. Extra-hydrating, super tasty and yes, really good for you. Loaded with energizing vitamins B and C, watermelons are also anti-inflammatory. Think bug bites, allergies, and that ankle sprain from the tennis game.  Watermelon is a good source of potassium and works as an antioxidant. It helps fight certain types of cancers and contributes to heart health. 

Berries

Summer is berry season and no matter which ones you call favorite, they’re loaded with super goodness to keep you vibrant and healthy all season long. Studies have also linked a dietary increase in antioxidant-rich foods to better protection against the sun’s harmful rays. In fact, blueberries are nutritional superstars, filled with fiber, vitamin C, and cancer-fighting compounds. Blueberry phytochemicals inhibit growth and metastatic potential of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells.

Reducing Your Risk for Prostate Cancer

 

Prostate cancer affects a large portion of the U.S. population. According to the National Cancer Institute, there were 3,120,176 men living with prostate cancer in 2015. Generally, the average man has an 11.2 percent risk of developing the disease at some point in life. However, poor diet and a lack of exercise can increase the risk.

Here are a few tips on how to reduce your risk of prostate cancer:

Get your fats from plants

According to the Mayo Clinic, men who eat high-fat diets have a greater risk of prostate cancer than men who eat low-fat diets. In addition to eliminating fatty animal products from your meals, you should attempt to get all of your fats from plants. This keeps in line with God’s Original Diet  from Genesis 1:29, which is completely plant-based. Olive oil, nuts and seeds are great sources of vegetable-derived fats.

Eat more fruits and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables should make an appearance in each of the day’s meals. Compared to processed foods that are common in the American Standard Diet, plants contain many more nutrients and no harmful preservatives.

Healthline recommended eating natural foods that are red in color. Red foods such as tomatoes and watermelon get their distinct color from a nutrient called lycopene, which is also an antioxidant. Other foods that contain lycopene are: grapefruit, papaya, red cabbage, mango and carrot.

Foods high in the anti-oxidant lycopene could help to reduce your risk of cancer. Reduce or eliminate dairy products

Tips for Optimal Oral Health

Your oral health is more important than you think. Bad breath, irritated gums, soreness, and cavities found in your teeth can pose even greater risks to your well-being. Referring to the mouth as the “window to your overall health,” MayoClinic reported that poor dental hygiene can lead to endocarditis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and other debilitating diseases.

To ensure your mouth remains healthy and creates a thriving gateway to the rest of your body, consider the following tips for optimal oral health:

Practice Healthy Oral Habits
Your parents likely drilled brushing and flossing into your head as a child. You must continue following these health oral habits as you age, and consider implementing them into your routine more often. Brush twice a day and floss at least once, whether it be in the morning before work or at night right before bed.

“Water flossers use high pressured water to remove plaque from teeth.”

If you’ve struggled to keep up with a flossing regimen in the past, you may consider a different option for cleaning between your teeth. Water flossers use high pressured water to remove plaque from teeth, making it less difficult to floss for those with arthritis.

Visit your Dentist Regularly
Your day-to-day home regimen may be working for you, but it’s not enough for keeping your oral health completely in check. Visiting the dentist on a regular basis is key to overall wellness. When you visit an oral specialist, he or she can check for cavities, determine

And yet, both beneficial and supporting your health no matter how big or small you can garden.

The Importance of Oxygen

 

Most people can live about 40 days without food; they can live about 4 days without water, but they can’t live more than about 4 minutes without oxygen.

As you read these words, your chest is softly, rhythmically, and automatically rising and falling as air enters into and exits your lungs. You probably weren’t even consciously aware of this until I called it to your attention. Yet, without this intake of air, which contains oxygen, your physical life would come to an abrupt end. The Bible says:

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life: and man became a living soul.”
~ Genesis 2:
7

Clearly God used two separate and distinct steps in the creation of man.

First, He formed man of the “dust of the ground”; when a body is placed in the ground, it eventually reduces to the same ingredients from which man was originally formed: mineral ash or “dust of the ground.”

So after step one, God had nothing but a dead, lifeless body to work with – it is devoid of LIFE.

Why is it motionless and lifeless? What makes the difference between life and death?

Answering these questions brings us to the most basic and important substance in man: oxygen! It is an ingredient of such monumental importance that without it, life is absolutely impossible.

God breathed into Adam’s dead and lifeless body the “breath of life,”

Lacto Fermentation: A Beginner’s Guide | Desi~licious RD

Lacto fermentation is more than a food preservation technique. Consuming fermented foods – rich in probiotics – can help to boost the population of good bacteria in your gut, which creates a protective barrier against germs and viruses. This guide discusses the fermentation method and the best tips to help you ferment vegetables at home.

Lacto Fermented foods benefits

As a registered dietitian, I’m often asked, “Are fermented foods good for you?” There’s no denying; a lot of interest and excitement exists in this area. Research links the beneficial health effects of fermented foods to the fact they’re a source of good bacteria or probiotics. What’s more, probiotics may improve immunity, and certain strains could even help prevent specific allergy symptoms. Because many of us don’t get enough vegetables in our diet, I’d say, enjoying fermented vegetables is a simple way to integrate them into meals – with all the added benefits of healthy bacteria.

It’s important, though, to consider that each person’s response to probiotics can vary, and the type of strain, as well as the quantity, can impact results. It goes without saying; consuming fermented foods – rich in probiotics – helps to boost the population of good bacteria in your gut. This creates a protective barrier against germs and viruses.

Besides gut-protecting probiotics, fermented foods are also easier to digest. For example, when milk is fermented to make kefir, some of the lactose (milk sugar) is broken down. This may be helpful to those struggling with

Preventing Gestational Diabetes

While pregnancy can be one of the most amazing and heartwarming moments in a mother’s life, complications that occur down the road can make the journey more stressful and painstaking. For example, women who develop gestational diabetes while carrying have to pay closer attention to their lifestyle habits to ensure their own health and the well-being of their newborn.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2-10 percent of women in the U.S. develop diabetes during their pregnancy. Gestational diabetes occurs when women develop high blood glucose levels while carrying, and can’t keep them down on their own. While the cause is unknown, it is said that an imbalance of hormones results in insulin resistance, leading to hyperglycemia.

Symptoms and Complications
According to the American Pregnancy Association, some of the common signs and symptoms that you have gestational diabetes include unusual thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, nausea, blurred vision and frequent infections of the skin, bladder or vagina. By the 24- to 28-week mark of your pregnancy, you’ll take a glucose test which tests the sugar in your urine or blood to reveal whether you have gestational diabetes.

If your test is positive, your doctor will discuss some of the complications that may occur after you give birth. Those include:

Developing Type 2 diabetes. Nearly 50 percent of women with gestational diabetes will develop Type 2 later in life. Large birth weight. Your baby is more likely to be 9 pounds or more at birth, which may make

Summer Exercise Safety Tips

Summer offers the perfect opportunity to take advantage of Mother Nature’s fitness center. The great outdoors is a beautiful landscape for running, jogging, stretching and just about any other activity you can imagine. But even if there’s no rain or clouds in the forecast, it’s very important to pay close attention to the temperature. Exercising in the heat isn’t only exhausting, but it can also be very dangerous.

To ensure you’re making the most of your workout while keeping your overall wellness in mind, consider the following tips:

1. Check the Forecast
Is the sun supposed to stay out all day? Is the temperature going to be 80 degrees Fahrenheit or higher? Will there be a breeze to cool you down when the sun shines through the clouds? Checking the forecast before an outdoor workout can save you from experiencing heat exhaustion.

2. Wear a Heart-Rate Monitor
Another important aspect of exercising in nature is tracking your heart rate. That’s because when it’s hot outside, your body is naturally forced to work harder. If you wear a heart-rate monitor, you can better understand how hard you’re pushing yourself without going too far.

A wearable fitness tracker can help you monitor your heart rate with ease.

“This is where a heart-rate monitor comes in handy,” gym owner Todd Durkin told Fitness magazine.  “You can make sure you’re not pushing yourself too hard in warm-weather conditions, which can up your risk of heat exhaustion or even heatstroke.”

Wearable fitness monitors can help you track

5-Minute Spinach Smoothie

The ultimate healthy green smoothie for on-the-go, made in under 5 minutes with plant-based protein, greens, healthy fats, and fruit!

The title says it all. The 5 Minute Spinach Smoothie is one of my go-to green smoothie “recipes” that I make if I’m in a bind and don’t have all the ingredients to make my Stripped Green Smoothie.

It’s a great recipe for if I’m in the mood for something else or if I want to share this smoothie with friends and family who are new to the whole “green smoothie thang.” Just like my Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie, this 5 Minute Spinach Smoothie is great to ease into the world of green smoothies with spinach, bananas, and natural sweeteners.

Spinach is a great green to use for beginner green smoothies for a couple of reasons, starting with the fact that it’s easy on your blender. Most of my clients and readers ask me about what greens they can blend in standard blenders, and, well, spinach is the one.

Spinach is naturally very delicate in texture and flavor which brings me to reason numero dos why this smoothie is great for beginners – it tastes great! The slightly sweet and subtle flavor of spinach goes really well with fruits, healthy fats like almond butter or avocado, and especially with plant-based protein powders. They all blend beautifully together for a really friendly spinach smoothie.

Spinach is also loaded with nutrients like iron, calcium, vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber and much

Grilled Vegetables Recipe | Easy and Healthy Recipes

Looking for a Spring or Summer side dish? There’s nothing easier than this grilled vegetables recipe. It’s a quick and easy way to bring out the best flavour in seasonal vegetables. This colourful platter is my go-to when I want to do the least amount of work in the kitchen. Whether you use your BBQ or the oven grill – just watch these veggies vanish from the table! Grab the recipe!

I’ve been making this grilled vegetables recipe for decades (literally!). Fair to say, these are the best grilled vegetables-ever! First and foremost is the fact that it’s the simpliest thing since sliced bread; grilled vegetables are ridiculously easy and healthy to pull off: simply wash and prep your favourite seasonal vegetables, add a dash of extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle some seasoning, and you’re in business. We typically grill up a large batch and use them in an array of recipes. And of course, we can’t resist but munch on them ‘as is,’ too!

They pack in so much flavour and are a great way to embrace seasonal produce.

After my vegan BBQ recipe collection, I shared last week, many of you asked for even more seasonal vegetables recipes – so here you are:)

Benefits of Healthy Fats

The word “fat” comes with a bad connotation. The idea of following a diet that’s loaded with fats sounds unappetizing and concerning for your overall well-being. However, there are numerous foods containing the healthy fats your body needs to thrive.

“Eating the right kinds of fats feeds both the body and brain, all while keeping us full longer, so we’re not as tempted to overeat or binge on sugary, crash-inducing snacks,” wrote Business Insider contributor Hilary Brueck.

Read on to learn about how beneficial the right kind of fats can be, plus the ones you should consider incorporating into your diet:

Benefits of Healthy Fats
By consuming fats, you’re giving your body a major source of energy through which to thrive. According to Harvard Health Publishing, fat is necessary for building cell membranes and helping your body absorb vitamins and minerals.

“Not all fats are created equal.”

But as you know, not all fats are created equal. Saturated and trans fats are the worst kind, as both increase the amount of bad cholesterol that enters the blood system. Bad fats also lead to inflammation, which can cause numerous debilitating diseases. All of the burgers, French fries, pizza and other greasy junk foods are loaded with these bad fats that can harm your body.

Incorporate These Healthy Fats Into Your Diet
On the other end of the spectrum, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are considered “healthy” fats. These fats have the ability to help lower cholesterol levels, protect against heart disease and more.

Emotional Eating: How Emotions Influence Your Eating Behaviors

I’m willing to bet just about everyone has experienced emotional eating at one point or another in their lives. That’s normal — we’re all human.

However, when emotional eating starts to become a habit where you’re experiencing perpetual, repetitive grief from it, it’s time to do a deep dive into those emotions and create some healthier practices for navigating them.

When left unaddressed, emotional eating can cause a great deal of added stress, anxiety and guilt. It can ultimately lead you down a pathway towards an unhealthy relationship with food and possibly cause further mental and physical health challenges.

Let’s explore exactly what emotional eating is, how to determine if you’re doing it, and a few ways you can begin coping with your emotions differently.

What is Emotional Eating

Emotional eating is when your emotions — anything from boredom to stress or grief — are guiding what, when, and how much you eat, rather than your physical hunger signals.

Emotional eating doesn’t just have to be in response to a major life event or intense news. It can also take place in response to day-to-day emotions such as boredom, loneliness, stress, anxiety and even excitement.

It’s characterized by a loss of control around food while in an emotional state. Not only do we reach for food when we’re feeling emotional, but we often lack the ability to know our limits and exert restraint.

Are You Emotionally Eating?

Ask yourself the following 5 questions:

Do you find comfort in

Is Your Manicure Negatively Impacting Your Health?

One of the most luxurious ways that a woman can pamper herself is with a good mani-pedi, but many women don’t realize that a manicure or pedicure can have a negative impact on their overall health and wellness. In fact, there are certain ingredients and chemicals that are often used in the nail salon which might lead to hormone disruption and potentially cause cancer!

If you enjoy having your nails done, then there are a few things that need to be considered when you are choosing a nail salon:

Parabens and Hormone Disrupters
Many beauty products contain parabens, which are used to reduce microbial growth and improve the shelf-life of the product. It is estimated that these parabens are added to over 13,000 beauty and household products, including items that might be found at your nail salon.

“Parabens are added to over 13,000 beauty products.”

These hormone disrupters are dangerous because they can impact the hormonal function within your body which has a domino effect on many other aspects of your overall health. The endocrine system controls the systems that regulate your sexual hormones, sleep hormones, metabolism, growth development, and more. When you use beauty products with hormone disrupting ingredients, then you will likely experience other side effects in many areas of your overall health and wellness.

Whether you do your own manicure at home or you prefer to visit the nail salon, make sure that you are using products that are free of parabens.

How to Create a Home Gym

We may know how important it is to get active and to lead healthy lifestyles, but for some people, that is harder because of financial stressors that can put roadblocks in our path towards health. While it’s unfortunate, living a healthy lifestyle can be fairly expensive. Fresh foods like fruits and vegetables tend to cost more than their unhealthier counterparts, and gym memberships can be several hundreds of dollars a month. While many want to live a healthy lifestyle, they may find that financially it’s difficult to commit to this decision to dedicate their time and money to a gym. Luckily, there are ways to bring a gym to you which will save time and money. This article dives into how to create a home gym.

You can create a home gym for a variety of budgets and reasons. For some, they’d prefer to work on their health in the privacy of their own home without the possibility of anyone judging them. Others may need to focus on monetary savings and can’t commit to a monthly gym membership right now. Some may have longer commutes to work that make finding the time to drive to a gym, change, workout, then drive home and get everything ready for the next day simply impossible. Creating a home gym can be a wonderful solution for all of those problems listed.

Follow these steps on how to create a home gym to create the perfect workout space for your needs.

  • Dedicate an area to your gym space. Even if you don’t have a spare bedroom, you can still carve out a chunk of space to be your gym. If you’re tight on space inside, look at your back porch and see if there’s an area there that could work for your equipment.
  • Determine your budget. Knowing what you can spend on this project is the second place to start once you’ve determined the area you can put the gym in.
  • Determine what equipment you’re going to buy. Depending on your needs and wants, your home gym can be as fancy as a regular gym with all the equipment or it can be minimal to meet your needs and offer you simple workouts you can complete daily. If you prefer running outside, then there’s no need to spend money on a treadmill or elliptical machine. Same if you have a bike you like to ride outside in your neighborhood. If you can’t afford a high-tech weight machine, look at ordering several sets of differently weighted dumbbells or kettle bells. You can complete all necessary strength training workouts with those, and they are much more affordable than a large machine.
  • Search for deals. Depending on what time of year you are searching for this equipment may allow you to save money. Searching at the new year can help you to save on workout equipment as many stores are offering sales relating to New Years resolutions.

Setting up the Gym

  • We suggest putting some rubber flooring down underneath your equipment to protect your current flooring from potential cracks, dings, and damage. There are many versions of rubber flooring, some that piece together like a puzzle, others that are a flat piece that you can cut to size.
  • Set up your area with enough space for you to move around and do your workouts in. Don’t put yourself in a corner or in too tight of an area where you are unable to move comfortably, and if you have equipment, have enough space around each one that a friend and you can use the equipment without causing injury.
  • Add a few mirrors to help you perfect your form and ensure that you are not lifting in a way that you can cause damage to your muscles.

Enjoy the Gym

Get your workouts in and enjoy your new workout area that inspires you to be your best self.

Weight Loss Tips Specific to Women

Women and men have a lot of differences between them, and the ability to lose weight at a fast pace is one of them. Think about that time you and your husband decided to make a lifestyle change together – you went to the gym, started eating healthier and dropped your bad habits all at the same time, yet the results popped up much faster for him than you. Why is that? According to endocrinologist Ula Abed Alwahab, MD, genes are most likely to blame.

“We hear this all the time, and it can be frustrating for women,” Alwahab told the Cleveland Clinic. “But unfortunately for women, their genetic makeup can make losing weight a little more challenging.”

Factors that contribute to the difficulty for women include lowered metabolic rate, affects of pregnancy, menopause and other conditions brought on by hormone imbalance. All of these changes in your life can make losing excess pounds and maintaining a healthy weight seem less attainable when you’re following standard tips and tricks.

But that doesn’t mean you have to sit around and let the weight gain ensue. There are plenty of changes – specific to women – that you can make to help the pounds shed quicker. Consider the following tips for losing weight:

Avoid Refined Sugars and Refined and Starchy Carbohydrates
According to Healthline, one of the most important factors to losing weight for women is by cutting the sugars and starches out of your diet. Because your body uses carbohydrates for

Health Benefits of Being Active

In many ways, humans have become stagnant. As technology continues to race forward, we find ourselves glued to different pieces of technology more and more, which is turning out to be quite harmful to our health. The majority of people have jobs that require extended amounts of time spent sitting at desks and working on computers or paperwork. While you wouldn’t think this is one of the worst things, what studies are finding is that this sitting and not moving is very detrimental to our health in numerous ways from our cardiac health to even potential links to cancer. One study even called sitting the new smoking. No one wants to be inactive so much that they are unable to live a healthy lifestyle or are sitting by while their bodies become damaged.

We’ve compiled some benefits of moving around to help encourage you to remain active in your life, even if you find yourself tied to your computer, tablet, or a desk in some form.

  • Enhanced mood. That’s right, living an active lifestyle and moving around intentionally each day can lead to an enhanced mood. Part of that comes from the endorphins that get released when we exercise. These endorphins are signals to our brain to lift our moods and make us feel happier. If you’ve ever heard the term runner’s high, that’s just endorphins being released. Running isn’t necessarily the only reason you can get it, as any form of cardiac exercise will help you to reach that endorphin “high.” Not only can this enhance your mood, but numerous studies have found that exercise is extremely beneficial to those who may suffer from mental illness like anxiety or depression. Exercise has been found to alleviate symptoms of both and allow you to live a happier, healthier life if you do suffer from those issues and are searching for more all-natural methods to help treat it.
  • Healthier lymphatic system. You may not know much about your lymphatic system other than you have lymph nodes all over your body, and they can sometimes swell up around your neck when you are getting a cold or the flu. It’s a bit more complicated than that as we have lymphatic fluid that is all around our bodies. However, while we know our circulatory system is always working because of our hearts, the lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump in the same way. The only way to keep this fluid from becoming stagnant is to keep moving. Moving around allows you to move the fluid and keep it moving throughout your body rather than becoming stagnant.
  • Protect your bones. We’ve all heard that it’s important to build healthy bones and muscles, by eating foods rich in Calcium, but there’s more to it than that. As we age, our bones are more likely to deteriorate, which is why it’s important to start living a healthy and active lifestyle as soon as possible. Living this active lifestyle will build up your muscles which will also build up your bones and strengthen bone mass and density. Not only that, but the higher impact exercise you do, such as running versus walking, the greater you benefit your bone growth.
  • Enhanced cognitive function. As we age, unfortunately, we all start to decline cognitively. For some, it’s more noticeable than for others, but while it’s important to focus on mind games to help keep the brain sharp, physical exercise also assists with this. While it’s important to start living an active lifestyle early on to protect your cognitive abilities, you can still improve it even if you are later in life. Any extra physical activity will help increase brain activity and thus improve your cognitive abilities.
  • Decrease cardiac issues. This one is pretty common knowledge, but still worth mentioning here. Moving around more gets your blood pumping more, which helps you to build up your heart. Your heart is a muscle, and just like any other muscle in your body, it needs to be worked on to help it to improve and become healthier in the long run. If you don’t work on it, it could increase your likelihood for cardiac issues down the road, so it’s important to move around and get at least 30 minutes of mild to moderate exercise each day to keep your heart healthy.

We know how important a healthy lifestyle is, and with all lifestyles, exercise is not enough. The SAD (Standard American Diet) that most Americans consume counteracts the benefits that exercise offers to your health, which is why it’s important to not only move around a lot each day, but also to follow a raw foods diet to help ensure that your body is as healthy as possible. The raw foods diet focuses on giving your body only all-natural foods that are rich in vitamins and nutrients to help nourish it rather than put chemicals and preservatives in your body. Check out our selection of products to assist you with your healthy lifestyle.

As we’re moving into the summer months (yay!) that also means that there’s a whole variety of foods that are now available to you and so many great summer recipes we can now make.

Of course, you can simply eat the produce on its own, but I really love incorporating these things into my meals so that I’m getting plenty of fruits and veggies throughout the day.

There’s three things that I always strive for with our recipes: making them nutritious, delicious, and easy. When you truly enjoy the food you’re eating, you’re nourishing yourself well, and it’s easy for you to make, you’re going to be so much more consistent with your healthy eating habits. And we know consistency is key for making you feel your best on a daily basis and caring for your long-term health.

As you’re thinking about what summer produce to buy and what summer recipes to make, ask yourself what recipes really excite you — which use your favorite fruits and vegetables and which use some new ingredients that maybe you don’t use as often?

Have fun in the process and you’ll notice yourself naturally choosing nutrient-dense foods and recipes that you enjoy.

7 Top Foods That Make You Gain Weight

 

If you eat foods common in the American Standard Diet, there’s a good chance you’re not treating your body well. In Genesis 1:29, God tells us what kinds of foods we should be eating, but few of today’s modern meals adhere to this guidance.

These seven foods are likely to make you gain weight:

1. Soft drinks
Added sugars have no place in God’s Original Diet, so it should be no surprise that sugary soft drinks will make you gain weight. In fact, a can of soda has no nutritional value at all. According to Healthline, calories derived from sugar do not make you feel full. Therefore, your body absorbs additional calories, but still wants more. Meanwhile, high levels of sugar can lead to serious conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and liver disease.

2. Pizza
A staple of the Standard American Diet, pizza is available on every other street in just about every town throughout the country. Pizza may contain a few vegetables, but the other ingredients have little nutritional value. Plus, most pizzas from fast-food restaurants are very high in calories, which contribute to weight gain.

3. Bread
White bread is made from refined wheat that causes your body’s blood sugar levels to spike after consumption. The gluten contained in bread can also trigger various immunodeficiency diseases such as fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis.

Though whole-grain breads are often advertised as healthy, they are really only healthy in relation to white bread. According to Healthline, whole

KetoneAid KE4 World’s Strongest Ketone Ester Drink, 30g Exogenous D BHB. Not a Salt. Sugar Free, Caffeine Free.


This is the lowest cost ketogenic drink to reach 1mm blood ketone levels. Recommended by Dr. Mary Newport in her latest book Complete Guide to Ketones.

All shipments are upgraded to Priority Mail for free, from the Washington DC area. Ships out next day.

WORLD’S STRONGEST EXOGENOUS KETONE DRINK. With 30 grams of D-Beta Hydxoxybutyrate (D-BHB) per serving, that makes Ketone Aid’s KE4 Ketone Ester the most concentrated product on the market. However most find benefit with only 10ml, which is 1/6th of a bottle/serving. One can test the effectiveness of a BHB drink using a blood ketone meter. With 10ml, most experience a 1.0mm jump blood ketone levels
NOT A KETONE SALT. Most of the Exogenous Ketone Drinks on the market are referred to ask “Ketone Salts”. Not sure if it is a salt? Look at the supplement facts and you will see 1-4 grams of total salt per serving (Including Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium). You would have to drink 10-20 servings of ketone salts to match 1 serving of KE4, however doing so would require a salt load of 20+ grams of salt
NON-RACEMIC 100% BIOAVAILABLE. Most of the Exogenous BHB Ketone Supplements are racemic. Racemic means that it contains both the bioavailable (the body can use it), “D” (or R) form and also the form that the body can’t use, called the “L” (or S) form. This essentially doubles the salt load even further and if a product has 11.7g of BHB and it is racemic, it is effectively only 5.85g of the D form of BHB. Furthermore salt will limit the uptake of BHB, further reducing effectiveness.
NATURALLY DERIVED. Many incorrectly think the ketone salts are natural and the ester is synthetic. That is incorrect. Most, if not all, ketone bhb drinks are not naturally derived, in part because they are racemic. KE4 is naturally derived and undergoes a fermentation type process.
THE ONLY KETONE ESTER that is Made in the USA, used in a placebo controlled Clinical Trial* and about $1 per gram.
