An average man’s lean body mass decreases by about 10 percent every decade due to aging and a lower production of testosterone. As a man loses muscle mass, he gains even more body fat, resulting in less circulating testosterone, which further compounds the problem. Science studies have directly linked testosterone loss with age to muscle wasting, […]

A recent scientific exploration has revealed one of the most significant discoveries supporting the power of food as medicine. This food-based medicine is turmeric (botanically called curcuma longa L.). At first, volumes of evidence exposed the anti-cancer effects of its flavonoids, specifically the phytochemical curcuminoids. As Dr. Russell Blaylock, M.D. states, "There is a multi-level anti-cancer process that occurs effecting the growth of cells from the use of this eastern delicacy. Additionally, it strengthens the immune system, lowers blood sugar and acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory due to its potent COX-2 enzyme inhibitor effect." Most researchers advocate that we need between 1000 and 3000 milligrams daily of this fragrant yellow "spice." Since it would be difficult to consume this level in the condiment form, it is generally suggested that we consume it as a supplement. It is also known to be helpful to take this supplement with oil rich cuisine such as sprouts, algaes, and/or condiment oils such as Hippocrates' PHYS-NEUR oil. Many researchers believe that tumeric interaction with magnesium adds to its effectiveness. Consuming foods rich in magnesium or taking a bio-available liquid magnesium supplement such as ENIVA can multiply its benefit.

Since animals exhaust this oxygen in the process of digestion and lactation, humans receive no residual oxygen in the consumption of meat and dairy food. The cooking of even the healthiest vegan food eliminates all oxygen content […]
