Moringa – An Ancient Remedy for All That Ails You

Moringa – An Ancient Remedy for All That Ails You

Every day there are more and more superfoods being touted as the fountain of youth. Moringa one of those ancient health secrets that is getting more and more attention, and for very good reason.

Moringa Oleifera, which is native to the Himalayas in Northwestern India, is often called “miracle tree” because of its high level of nutrition. In fact, it is said that 2 teaspoons of Moringa contain 8.5 x the Protein of yogurt, 15 x the Potassium of bananas, 10.5 x the Vitamin A of carrots, 12 x the Iron of spinach, and 16.5 x the Calcium of milk! It also includes important Amino Acids, Phytonutrients, Fiber, and Minerals making it quite possibly THE MOST powerful and nutrient dense food in nature.

Earthy flavored Moringa powder can be added to your daily smoothie or salad giving you an abundance of easily digestible plant-based nutrition. It can also be brewed as a tea and used in various soups and sauces.

As with all herbs, choose an organic, raw version whenever possible which ensures no harmful GMO’s, pesticides, or chemicals. Start slowly with a half teaspoon daily and work your way up.

One version that I enjoy is Organic Veda Moringa Leaf Powder.

*Always check with your health care provider before starting any new vitamin, herb, or supplement regimen.

Attention Men! Is your Testosterone Low?

Attention Men! Is your Testosterone Low?

If you’re a man in his 30’s, 40’s, 50’s or beyond it is well worth looking into your Testosterone levels. In fact, getting a full hormone panel regularly which includes a series of vital tests such as Testosterone, Estrogen, DHEA, and Thyroid to name a few, is an important tool in your goal of remaining youthful, vibrant, and healthy.

Your doctor won’t normally suggest hormone tests since it is often over and above the usual requirements of an annual physical. Perhaps it’s time to take your health into your own hands and communicate with your physician about your desire to get them checked.

Many guys when presented with the idea of Testosterone replacement have visions of angry, overstuffed bodybuilders when in reality, those images are often due to a higher than normal level of Testosterone mixed with other steroids.

For the everyday man who wants to increase energy, burn fat, build lean muscle, lower the risk of disease, increase cognitive function, and experience a more stable and upbeat mood, Testosterone may be the answer.

I was one of those men. Just a few years ago I found out that my T levels were lower than expected. Despite doing all that I could with exercise, diet, and nutrition, they remained on the low side of normal. I was still fit and lean but I suffered from bouts of depression and often felt unrested in the mornings after a long night’s sleep. I didn’t make the connection until I did more research.

My doctor suggested that I try a low dose of bio-identical Testosterone replacement therapy. Within a very short period of time, I felt an increase in energy, a more restful sleep, and my mood seemed stable and positive. I also noticed that I didn’t need to work out as arduously in order to get the results I once did just years before. For me, Testosterone was a godsend. It was as if I had cleaned the spark plugs of my body increasing the effectiveness and energy of all aspects of my health.

After much research, I truly believe that Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the answer for many men who are looking to not only increase their longevity but also to feel better along the way.

Testosterone can be taken via gel or cream, injection, patch, or from a pellet that is placed under the skin. Once you’ve done the initial blood work or saliva panel, an endocrinologist or hormone specialist can go over your best options and whether or not you’re a candidate. Keep in mind that many general practitioners will tell you that “you’re fine for your age” which may not always be the ideal for those looking to be at their optimal.

Some of the numerous benefits of increasing your Testosterone levels are:

  • Increased Physical Energy
  • Better Cognitive Function
  • Deeper and More Restful Sleep
  • Increased Libido
  • Stabilization of Mood and Decreased Depression
  • An Increase in Bone Mineral Density
  • Less Body Fat
  • Increased Lean Muscle
  • Decreased Risk of Certain Diseases

Testosterone replacement is surprisingly affordable and not just for Hollywood’s elite. Men all over the world are beginning to understand that the fountain of youth involves more than just eating well, exercising, and keeping a positive attitude. Sometimes, we need help from outside sources. In this case, a Bio-Identical Hormone that mimics our bodies own production, giving us a more vital and youthful appearance with a renewed zest that we may have thought had long passed us by.

*Always consult with your physician before beginning any hormone-related treatments.

My FAVORITE Anti-Aging Face Product!

My FAVORITE Anti-Aging Face Product!

Paraben free TNS Essential Serum has totally transformed my skin! I LOVE this product and although expensive, it is worth every penny.

Human fibroblasts are cells that make up part of the skin’s connective tissue, including collagen. When our skin is damaged, the body stimulates fibroblasts as part of the repair process. A topical application of HFCM triggers this same process of repair in the skin through external signals.

SkinMedica is one of the first companies to start using HFCM for cosmetic purposes, although this product and process has been used for several years in the treatment of burn victims. This is a very exciting development for the field of anti-aging treatments and it is being touted by many cosmetic surgeons as the best product available today.
