The Real Power of Antioxidants

“Antioxidants are natural compounds found in some foods that help neutralize free radicals in our bodies.”

Antioxidants play an important role in overall health. They are found in many plants throughout the plant kingdom with varying degrees of concentration. The body’s trillion or so cells face formidable threats daily, ranging from lack of food, lack of nutrients, lack of water, environmental or chemical exposure, to infections with a virus, bacteria, fungi, parasites and electrosmog – just to name a few!

In the Victorian government Better Health site, it’s stated that antioxidants benefit your health by cleaning free radicals out of your bloodstream. I wrote about the Antioxidants The Wonder Nutrients a few weeks ago, but have been getting a stream of questions regarding free radicals and why we recommend the specific antioxidants we do.

There are a few very simple reasons: Read More

We must reform the outdated, ineffective Toxic Substances Control Act (TCSA) to protect the most vulnerable, especially children and pregnant women, phase out the worst chemicals, and require basic safety data for all chemicals before they are put into our products.” says Kathleen Schuler, a contributing author to the report “The Health Case for Reforming the Toxic Substances Control Act”, yet I bet you think that this testing has already been done.

Antioxidants – the Wonder Nutrients!

“Antioxidants: the Wonder Nutrients that can Boost Memory, Protect Your Heart, Prevent Disease, Slow Ageing and Give You Beautiful Skin!”

The magnitude of plants with therapeutic properties is astounding. Some 70,000 species of plants, from lichens to towering trees, have been used throughout history for medicinal purposes. About 500 herbs are still employed in conventional medicine although the whole plant is rarely used, often at the sacrifice of the synergistic qualities of the herb.

Several hundred of these plants contain antioxidants which are free-radical fighters. Antioxidants are some of the most abundant substances in the plant kingdom. These powerful substances, which mostly come from the fresh fruits and vegetables we eat, prohibit (and in some cases even prevent), the oxidation of other molecules in the body. They work by generously giving electrons to free radicals without turning into electron-scavenging substances themselves. Read More

Thomas Edison’s Thoughts on Persistence

Thomas Edison

When we think of Thomas Edison, we think of the invention of the electric bulb. This great scientist was also an inspiring leader. Thomas Edison was also a man of immense determination and persistence, he wouldn’t let any obstacle, hardship or setback block him from achieving his goals. He understood that a true genius sweats!

A famous Edison quote is, “Many of life’s failures are men who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

When it comes to developing million dollar creative gems, most people stop short of reaching the mother lode while mining their own “Field of Diamonds”. Genius is not airy-fairy come-up-with-a-few-ideas, sit back and let the workers carry them out. Genius takes effort and passion. Above all, it takes perseverance.

Edison said, “Nearly every man who develops an idea works at it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then gets discouraged. That’s not the place to become discouraged.” Read More
