Why Creatine Is Not Just For BodyBuilders - For Moms and More

If I told you that the supplement that bodybuilders use to stack on muscle… And that Mark McGwire claimed he used to beat the homerun record (when he actually used illegal drugs)... ...was a supplement that you might consider taking every single day, you might be surprised by my recommendation. I get it, why would you take something that people use to pack on pounds of muscle? Wouldn’t that be risky? And wouldn’t that change your body in ways you wouldn’t like? The answer is no, not even close. Creatine is an amazing supplement and one that is probably better tested and more thoroughly studied than just about anything on the planet. It’s all-natural and won’t just help improve your...

The Monk Fruit

Have you ever heard of monk fruit? The name monk-fruit is funny-sounding, isn’t it? When I first heard of monk fruit a vision of an orange in a brown robe popped into my head. Turns out monk fruit is a small, greenish-colored gourd that hails from Southeast Asia and is nothing like an orange… Well, I’m getting ahead of myself here, it is like an orange in that it is sweet like an orange. It’s unlike an orange in that the sweetness it delivers can be isolated into a powder or a liquid and serve as a 0-calories option to replace sugar. How sweet is it? 150-200 times sweeter than sugar. And yes, it really has 0 calories, 0 carbohydrates,...

Why Plantains are An Amazing Health Food

   Ok, before I get too far into this article, let me admit that I acknowledge I have focused intently on the ketogenic diet over the past few years. So, for me to write on an extremely dense source of carbohydrates might be a departure from the normal. Let me couch this fact within this statement. Carbohydrates are not evil AND, when we use carbohydrates wisely we can benefit greatly from the energy and nutrition they provide. One of the best sources of carbohydrates is the plantain, or as I’ve heard it called, “bananas on steroids.” Plantains are not a ubiquitous food here in the States, and I think that’s a shame, as they’re one of the healthier foods around....

Surprising Benefits Provided By Protein Shakes

Here at Health As It Ought To Be we don’t talk about people relying solely on meal replacements to get them through the day. On the other hand, we know that plenty of people have to augment their diet with things like protein shakes because the demands of life necessitate eating on the go. And that’s why we wanted to let you know that even though your diet shouldn’t be filled with protein shakes like our Momsanity Dutch Chocolate Shake… There is substantial evidence to show that high-quality protein shakes can actually help boost various aspects of health. Something to consider is you won’t get these benefits from every protein shake. Lower-quality protein shakes with artificial ingredients can actually sabotage...

A Weird Chemical Dr. Wiggy Recommends for Blood Sugar

Dr. Wiggy is known for his reliance on all-natural treatments for a variety of issues. Because that’s true, people come from all across the South to see him.  Especially when it comes to thyroid health and improving blood sugar. So if Dr. Wiggy is all about “natural treatments” then why does he recommend a chemical every day? It’s a good question. While the all-natural health movement tends to talk negatively about “chemicals” you can’t go along with that kind of thinking since everything is made of chemicals. Natural treatments have their biological basis in chemical structures. To say something is “chemical-free” is a false dichotomy since there isn’t a thing on Earth that isn’t made of chemicals. However, there are...
