Sea buckthorn oil can promote liver health and decrease the storage of body fat

0

by Janine Acero, Natural News:

Lesser known fruits and plants have been gradually taking the spotlight in alternative medicine as natural remedies to various health conditions and improving overall nutrition. One study focused on sea buckthorn oil and how it can affect the body when added to a diet.

Fatty acids are primarily energy sources and membrane constituents for the human body. Although various food groups such as fish provide sufficient amounts of fatty acids, plant oils can simultaneously supply numerous regulatory and protective compounds like sterols, tocols, carotenoids, and lipophilic phenolics.

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

When you’re in for some turbulent weather, do you head to the store with a list entitled, “Food for Power Outage?” Or do you already have a supply of food for power outages that you keep carefully hidden from your family? Many folks these days don’t have a way to cook when the power goes out, so that should be considered when creating your supply of the best foods for a power outage. If you don’t already have a stockpile of non-perishable food, it’s time to build one.

The top 10 best foods to grow for survival

by Zoey Sky, Natural News:

When it comes to prepping, it’s always good to know about the best plants that you can grow in your garden or homestead. If you have access to your own produce, you can cross food off of the things that you have to think about when SHTF.

If a survival situation involves a long-term recovery event, your food and water supply may run out, unless you’ve stored at least several years’ worth of food in your stockpile. (h/t to SmartPrepperGear.com)

But this isn’t always possible for all preppers, so you have two options: You can resort to scavenging food or growing your own. The best option is to grow your own food, but this may sound daunting for those who don’t have any gardening experience.

The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain

0

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising…

Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From ‘conspiracy theories’ about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional ‘seat of the soul’ – many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting to organize at the local and statewide level to oust this ubiquitous toxicant from municipal drinking water.

Why All Diabetics Should Know About Turmeric

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

Many diabetics already know about the benefits of a low-glycemic diet and the need for regular exercise, but why haven’t they heard about turmeric, one of the world’s most extensively researched anti-diabetic plants?

A recent literature review published in the International Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism titled, “Anti-Hyperglycemic Effect and Insulin Sensitizing Effects of Turmeric and Its Principle Constituent Curcumin,” adds promising new support to the notion that the ancient Indian spice turmeric may provide an ideal drug alternative to treating and perhaps even preventing type 2 diabetes, which has become of the world’s most prevalent diagnoses.

How CBD Oil Helped My Arthritis & Celiac Based Digestive Challenges

by Kathy Smart, Collective Evolution:

CBD oil. What is it? Why do we keep hearing about it? I’m going to share my personal experience with CBD oil as Holistic Nutritionist of the Year for Canada, and why it took the lead for me.

Cannabidiol is extracted from the flowers and buds of cannabis or hemp plants. It does not produce intoxication; marijuana’s “high” is caused by the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Why Cast Iron is a Prepper Essential

0

by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:

There’s nothing better than a hard day in the winter of cutting wood than coming home at the end of the day with a Dutch oven sitting on top of your wood stove with elk cuts, carrots, potatoes, onions, celery, and garlic marinating in broth and seasoned up…hot and ready to eat. In the morning, just add some wood to the fire you banked, heat up the stove, and make a nice stack of pancakes on your cast iron griddle along with some eggs and bacon.

Cast iron is coming back into fashion in a lot of ways. Even in the cities, many people cook over a gas stove with cast iron cookware. Poisonous Teflon coating is avoided, as well as “Chinese Steel,” a term of yours truly to describe steel that appears to be stainless, but is not totally steel and is mixed with other metals. Aluminum is not good to cook with and high concentrations in the bloodstream are linked to Alzheimer’s in studies.

The Science Of Community

by Chris Martenson, Peak Prosperity:

The Peak Prosperity tribe is gathering.

Members from all over the country (including a few from Europe and Asia) are arriving in northern California today for our annual weekend seminar.

Chris and I are really looking forward to this. We’re introducing a host of upgrades this year: a better location, a better venue, new content and exercises, and guest appearances by many of the experts who appear on PeakProsperity.com (including Charles Hugh Smith, Richard Heinberg, Axel Merk, Wolf Richter, David Pare, Mark Rees, the New Harbor team, the folks from Farmland LP, as well as several others).

But as anyone who has attended one of our past seminars (or city Summits) knows, it’s the PP members themselves who are the heart of the experience. Having so many like-minded folks in one place at the same time is a refreshing and energizing rarity.

From Tree To Table: Tips For Fresh Maple Syrup

0

by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:

The freshest, unprocessed, maple syrup comes directly from trees and you can tap into all of that yummy goodness yourself! Not only does maple syrup taste great, but it can be a potent natural medicine with additional health benefits as well!

The sap in trees contains water and dissolved sugars and other nutrients that travel up towards the branches, feeding the developing leaves. But surprisingly, sap is only about 2% sugar or sucrose depending on the species of tree and is also good for bone health. It has been shown to contain 16 times the potassium, 37 times the calcium, and 3.9 times the magnesium of spring water.  All 3 of these minerals are essential nutrients for optimal bone health. Just as calcium and potassium are two minerals that function in supporting optimal bone health, they also play a role in regulating blood pressure.  Sap also supports a healthy immunes system and is an antioxidant!

How To Detox From Fluoride

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

In today’s world, fluoride is hard to avoid completely. Here’s how to detox your body. 

Adding fluoride to the water supplies has been called murder on a grand scale. But whether or not your town adds it to your drinking water, you’re probably ingesting this toxin every day.

You’re exposed to fluoride if you take prescription drugs like Prozac, swim in pools, or sit in hot tubs.  It’s in conventional produce like lettuce, and commercial bread and bakery products.  It may be in beverages like iced tea, wine, and beer made with municipal water, or in infant formula.  And of course it’s in toothpaste.  It may even sneak into your food from Teflon coated pots and pans.

EMP: An Elaborate Hoax or a Legitimate Threat?

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

As a prepper and avid reader of post-apocalyptic fiction like One Second After, Alas Babylon, and Going Home, an EMP has long been on my mind as one of the most catastrophic threats we could face.

After reading numerous reports from the Congressional EMP Commission, I figured that the reality of such a threat was a given. So when I recently wrote about making Faraday cages, imagine my surprise when I saw this comment:
