With the recent pandemic, we are heeding the advice to wash our hands more than 20 seconds, using hand sanitizer, etc. We hear this advice being repeated over and over again to the point of redundancy. Although great advice, merely washing hands does not keep us healthy.
We need to be as concerned about our shoes as much or more so than our hands. Did you know our shoes carry bacteria from fecal matter, C-Diff and carcinogens? I have a shoes- off policy in my home and I hope you have one, too. If not, read about the risks.
Have you heard of anthocyanins? Anthocyanins have shown to benefit brain cognition, support the cardiovascular system, fight cancer, reverse UV damage, reduce inflammation and help diabetics. Anthocyanins are found in purple foods like berries, grapes, beets, purple cabbage and more.
Now, think of the health benefits if, for example, you could eat 500 beets in a serving! That doesn’t sound appealing to me, especially since I do not care for beets. However, beets are excellent inflammation fighters! I personally use something called“Limitless” which is beet root powder with the sugar removed. Each capsule is the equivalent of 500 beets and may reduce inflammation markers up to 47%.
We already know sugar is not the best thing for us to eat, but do we think of hidden sugars? Although many fruits and vegetables contain important nutrients, if we are trying to lose weight or fight an illness, higher sugar foods may not always benefit us, even if natural. When purchasing premade foods or condiments, check the nutrition information on the label. Anything containing more than 5 grams of sugar is not beneficial if you are ill or trying to increase your metabolic rate.
We know to eat our fruits and vegetables, but did you know produce that is not organic has less nutrients than it did 30+ years ago? It is true! Read more here. To combat that issue, we can greatly increase our produce intake, eat organic or take food sourced, stabilized natural supplements. If vitamins are not food sourced, they are synthetic and not metabolized properly by the body.
Many people have not heard of Acemannan, which comes from the most researched plant on the planet, aloe vera. Acemannan helps the body in the processes of defense, repair and regeneration. One reason many have not heard of Acemannan is it is difficult to stabilize and mass market. Evolv Health holds the patent to the most bioavailable Acemannan on the market. Acemannan is not an immune stimulant or booster, which may be harmful to cancer patients. It is an immune modulator, which means if your immune system is over active, Acemannan will help slow it down and if underactive, help it speed up.
To summarize, helping our bodies achieve homeostasis is the optimal way to stay healthy. Experts predict by 2050, more people will die from infectious disease than cancer. Doesn’t it make sense to be proactive versus reactive?
