Boost your memory, age-proof your mind & give your brain some love ~ with these natural solutions!

Feeling ‘foggy’ and forgetful? Does your memory seem weak and your brain feel tired?

Does it feel sometimes like your brain is ‘overtaxed’ and not running at its full capacity to meet your daily demands?

We live in an extremely fast-paced and complex world . . . and at times it may seem as though you’re ‘not up for it’!

Don’t despair, the good news is that there are ways to protect your brain from excessive demands and even help ‘fire-it-up’ so that you can function at your best!

Popular movies such as “Limitless” and “Lucy” . . . have alerted the general public to the concept of cognitive improvement, brain-enhancement and ‘Nootropics’. The term Nootropics can be used to refer to herbal supplements or ‘smart-drugs’ (including drugs that are dangerous or illegal) that improve mental performance, attention, motivation and intelligence.

If you’re intrigued by the idea of nootropics and how to relieve brain fog, improve memory, boost brain power and provide your body with ‘brain food’ – you’ll clearly want to avoid harmful ‘smart drugs’ and instead reach for powerful brain-boosting nutrients and nootropic herbs!

13 Nutrients for Healthier Hair, Skin & Nails . . . and even improved circulation!

It’s often said that our hair, skin and nails are external tell-tale signs of how healthy we are (or not!). The first obvious signs of nutrition deficiency are of course external – so unhealthy hair, skin and nails indicate that your body needs a nutritional boost!

In the modern world, our diet is often deficient in optimal levels of essential nutrients and in addition, includes foods that inflame our cells and cause a breakdown and even end up tearing apart the collagen, keratin and elastin that provide supple skin, strong and silky hair and strong, fast-growing nails.

Toxic overload, stress, poor diet and nutritional deficiencies all contribute to lack-lustre skin, dry and brittle hair, and brittle nails that never seem to grow.

One of the neatest things about eating a healthy diet and supplementing with the right nutrients – is your nails, hair and skin are often the first things to change for the better!

We encourage you to download the free The Eat Savvy Diet, as following this will help you to decrease toxins and increase the important nutrients and essential fatty acids for better hair, skin and nails.

Eating a nutrient rich diet is important, however you ‘fast-track’ your road to looking great and feeling healthier by increasing your supplementation of specific youth-boosting nutrients.

Here’s 13 Nutrients for Healthier Hair, Skin & Nails . . .

Coenzyme Q10: The Body’s Spark Plug

 

Many of us know very little about the goings on inside our cars – we turn the key and the engine starts, right? Are you aware that while there are many important aspects to having a smooth running engine, a primary condition to having your car start when you turn the key is having good clean spark plugs? Just as a car can’t run without an initial spark, without adequate ‘spark’ the human body just can’t get going either. When we are running short of important ingredients our body gets sluggish and is hard to get going.

Well if they are so important, I have a question to ask: When was the last time you looked after the spark plugs in your body? Where are these ‘spark plugs’ you may be asking.

 “Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) could be considered the spark plug of life due to its key role in energy production.”

According to a NZ research based company “Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) could be considered the spark plug of life due to its key role in energy production.” How about that! Dr. Karl Folkers (1906 – 1997) left a legacy of over 66 years of outstanding research in organic and biological chemistry. He believed that a 25% deficiency in the body’s CoQ10 levels is enough to cause illness, while a deficiency of 75% or more can lead to death.  Although coenzyme Q10 is normally produced by the human body, medical institutes such as the Mayo Clinic recommend increasing the dietary intake of CoQ10 (depending on the cause of the CoQ10 deficiency), along with supplementation of it and the other vitamins and minerals needed to produce or utilize CoQ10.

Bruce Ames, professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of California, Berkeley, also presents a hypothesis that implies micronutrient deficiency may eventually deteriorate the quality of whole human cell health. A portion of Professor Ames’ abstract reads as follows:

Inadequate dietary intakes of vitamins and minerals are widespread, most likely due to excessive consumption of energy-rich, micronutrient-poor, refined food. Inadequate intakes may result in chronic metabolic disruption, including mitochondrial decay. Deficiencies in many micronutrients cause DNA damage, such as chromosome breaks, in cultured human cells or in vivo. Some of these deficiencies also cause mitochondrial decay with oxidant leakage and cellular aging and are associated with late onset diseases such as cancer.

The 12 Tolls of Christmas (And How To Cope With Them)

Yes, the festive nights of Christmas celebrations have arrived once again. While Christmas is something most people to look forward to, what about the toll on our minds and bodies (not to mention our wallets) from the excesses. For as long as we’ve celebrated Christmas and the New Year, many of us have overindulged in food and alcohol. It can take quite a lot of self-control to make sure you don’t overindulge, but even your best intentions or plans can go wrong.

We haven’t written about overcoming the challenges of Christmas excess since 2010, so we thought a well timed update might be in order, with Christmas fast approaching. As Alice Walton in “The 12 Health Risks Of Christmas” an article in Forbes writes:

If you’re not a big fan of the holidays, don’t worry – you’re not alone. This time of year can spark all kinds of unexpected reactions and behaviours in even the most well-adjusted among us. There’s the loneliness, the anxiety, the guilt, the overindulgence (which can also lead to more guilt), and, of course, the bitterness. And to top it all off there’s the looming New Year, which is always disturbing since it hits us with the pressure of developing good habits right after we’ve fully exercised our bad ones.

What can we do about  the common holiday pitfalls, emotional, mental and physical, which many of us encounter in some shape or form over the festive season or at any other time of year? How can we at least manage the tolls more effectively when they come our way? How do we deal with all those indulgences, the sumptuous foods and drink, the increased weather demands and the emotional or mental stresses and strains?

Here are the 12 Tolls of Christmas and how to cope with them . . .
