- Korean red ginseng, known to boost energy and often found in energy drinks, has recently been studied for improving facial wrinkles. In a 24-week study, collagen increased in participants that took three grams a day. Korean red ginseng also improved blood circulation when taking 1500 mgs for at least eight weeks – increasing blood flow also help wrinkles. Improving blood circulation is also beneficial to the heart, lungs, muscles, and oxygen flow to the extremities.
- Yoga has been studied for years for its multiple health benefits. One report I found touted that yoga is good for 107 diseases. I think it goes without saying, but I’m going to say it anyway, yoga is good for you. Yet there’s one specific study that really stood out – it reported that three months of yoga resulted in widespread improvement in cardiovascular and neurological function. The study maintained that yoga may prevent age-related changes to the heart, brain and autonomic functions. Time to Namaste.

- The old adage, An apple a day keeps the doctor away was waaaay ahead of its time. The saying originated in Wales in 1860. The English version was, Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread. The reason why the quote was ahead of its time is because apples, apple juice, apple pectin and apple peel have the ability to prevent some cancers, while suppressing others. I have just touched the surface with this research. It’s going to need a full article because the benefits are unending. I just know I’m adding organic apples to my shopping list this week.
For a healthier you!
