Shilajit

Shilajit, the words looks like it should be a swear word. Or, it looks like it was made up by a monkey pounding on a keyboard. Well, neither of those are true. Shilajit is actually a tar-like compound that is formed by the breakdown of plant-substances trapped in the earth. In fact, it actually oozes from rocks as the pressure of the trapped shilajit causes it to pop through fissure in rock surfaces in the Himalayan mountains. It’s almost like oil, but different in that it’s safe to ingest. And different in that it’s also good for you.

Our Only Must-Have Mineral?

Magnesium is a must-have supplement. That’s right, a must-have supplement, one you should take as often as you could. Why should you take it every day? Why is Magnesium a Must-Have Supplement?

Instead, I’d like to show you how this root vegetable helps promote good health by protecting our most vital organs while simultaneously enhancing other bodily functions. Garlic has numerous uses. Both as a condiment (which I won’t focus on here) and as a therapeutic element. Keep in mind many of the old-wives’ tales about garlic are rooted in truth. And while people have used...

This Is Your Best Friend For Detox (not a supplement)

Detox. An abbreviation for a popular health trend. Now let me be clear, detox (or detoxification) isn’t just a health trend, it’s a vital function for great health. If your body didn’t detoxify yourself of the millions of microscopic toxins floating through your body you’d be quite sick. This is why detox has become a well-known health trend. Popular culture as well as the medical field have realized we’re under attack all day long by thousands of dangerous compounds and we’re trying to do all that we can to make sure these dangerous elements don’t harm us. Which is why people are selling teas, and juices, and advocating hot yoga among many other practices; all are supposed to enhance your...

3 Health Benefits Of Aloe Vera (Not Just For Sunburn)

Every summer millions of pounds of aloe vera gel are sold to help lessen the pain of sunburn. I understand the feeling all too well, as I’ve accidentally fallen asleep outside and suffered the consequences of a little bit too much sun.  And while I love using aloe vera to help hydrate and soothe a red-hot sunburn I’d be crazy not to let you know about other things aloe can do for you. It just so happens that aloe vera is one of the few forms of vegetation that doesn’t just look great in a terracotta pot, but also will help you maintain great health. As I go through a list of possible uses for aloe vera please keep one...
