Throughout history, our ancestors have relied on herbs and spices, not only for cooking, but for their healing properties. Few have survived the test of time quite like turmeric, arguably the most well-studied dietary supplement in modern natural medicine. While turmeric has drawn more attention from natural health enthusiasts in recent years, it’s been used as a health supplement for approximately 4,500 years. It’s become an international export, but hasn’t strayed far from its roots.
In the pursuit to optimize personal performance, athletes have been experimenting with different food sources and supplements for years. Despite the shifting fads for performance enhancement, caffeine has been a long-time favorite for athletes. It can help keep our minds sharp, increase our performance, and even speed up our recovery.
Research on creatine suggests that it does much more than help us build muscle and strength. While it can undoubtedly help us set PRs in the gym, creatine can also have positive effects on bone mineral density, reduce oxidative stress, and even boost memory. In short, creatine has something to offer nearly everyone.
The leaves are turning, the days are getting cooler and crisp, and the smell of pumpkin spice is in the air. Autumn is upon us, and with cold and flu season on the horizon (and COVID-19 still a major threat), it’s also the season to take healthy steps toward keeping our immunity at its strongest. The immune system, as we all know, is our body’s natural defense against infection, and is key toward maintaining good health. It consists of a vast network of organs, white blood cells, proteins (antibodies), and chemicals. This system works together to protect us from foreign invaders (bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi) that cause infection, illness and disease. A well-working immune system prevents germs from entering our bodies and kills them or limits their harm if they get in. To keep our immune systems healthy, we must get plenty of sleep, stay active, eat healthy foods, reduce stress and follow other healthful habits.
