Curcuminoids Contain:

  • anti-inflammatories
  • antioxidants
  • anti-tumor properties
Because of this, curcumin has a clear link with fighting infection and diseases. Increasing your turmeric intake could help your body fight against inflammatory diseases like pancreatitis and irritable bowel syndrome, chronic diseases like diabetes and Alzheimer’s, and even cancer.
There’s got to be a catch, right? Well there is.
Curcumin has a low bioavailability.

What does that mean?

Very simply put, bioavailability is how much of something we absorb into our bodies. So if something has a low bioavailability – like curcumin – then our bodies don’t get all its got to offer. Does this mean we should just eat more of it?
What we need to do is find the best way to boost curcumin’s bioavailability. Get all the health benefits turmeric has to offer by using these little tricks:

1. A Little Fresh Black Pepper?

Black pepper is medicinal in its own right, but when added to turmeric it significantly increases the way your body responds to the healthy and helpful curcumin within. Studies show that when we eat turmeric, our bodies show a slight bump in curcumoids, but when black pepper is added, the levels skyrocket.
“The same amount of curcumin consumed, but the bioavailability shoots up 2000%. Even just a little pinch of pepper—1/20th of a teaspoon—can significantly boost levels,”

2. Healthy Fats

Turmeric needs to be combined with a fat for our bodies to fully absorb it and realize its health benefits. Even just eating turmeric whole is a good idea; the natural oils found in turmeric (fresh, dried, or as a powder) make the bioavailability of curcumin way stronger, meaning your body gets more out of it.
“When it doesn’t dissolve properly, curcumin has a tough time getting into the gut, which is where most of the immune system lives,” explains Dr. JosephMercola, a health philanthropist and best-selling author.
Curcumin is fat-soluble, so add it into your sauces and dressings for a kick of taste, colour, and health benefits.

3. Turn Up The Heat

This is where the cooking comes into play. All you need is a little heat and the curcumin benefits are all yours. Dr. Saraswati Sukumar, oncologist and pathologist at the Johns Hopkins Center, advises using turmeric not-so-sparingly:
“I use turmeric in every sauté, just a quarter teaspoon, a half teaspoon is enough. But you don’t have to use it sparingly – use it lavishly. The best way to take it, I feel, is to use it in your cooking very extensively. If you have any sauté, just sprinkle it in. The moment you heat oil and add turmeric to it, it now becomes completely bio-available to you.”
So there you have it. Combine turmeric with black pepper, healthy fats (like coconut oil, or ghee)and heat it up. It’s a delicious way to get the most out of the spice, and you won’t even notice how healthy you’re being.
  • Increase lifespan. 
  • Protect the liver oxidative stress. 
  • Kill fungus more effectively than ginger, clove and oregano. 
  • Induce tumor cell death in the deepest parts of individual cells. 
  • Kill bladder cancer cells. 
  • Destroy lung cancer cells.
  • Lower blood cholesterol levels. 
  • Protect against cognitive/memory defects from heavy ion irradiation. 

1. Chronic Inflammation and Pain

The journal Oncogene published the results of a study that evaluated several anti-inflammatory compounds. It found that aspirin (Bayer, etc.) and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, etc.) are least potent, while curcumin is among the most potent anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative agents in the world.  This means turmeric not only has great promise with chronic pain, but since it has less side effects, it may provide safe, lasting results!

2. Rheumatoid Arthritis

Due to its high anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric is highly effective at helping people manage rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A recent study out of Japan evaluated its relationship with interleukin (IL)-6, the inflammatory cytokine known to be involved in the RA process, and discovered that curcumin “significantly reduced” these inflammatory markers. This suggests that regular turmeric use could be a potent strategy to prevent the onset of RA from developing to begin with! 

3. Depression

Researchers from the Government Medical College (Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India) published the results of the first study this past April to evaluate curcumin’s ability to manages depression in a controlled setting. Taking 60 volunteers diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD) and diving the group to determine how patients treated by curcumin compared against fluoxetine (Prozac) and a combination of the two, it discovered that that the principal curcuminoid in turmeric is not only as effective as Prozac in managing depression, it doesn’t carry with it all the dangerous side effects as anti-depressive drugs do. According to the paper, “This study provides first clinical evidence that cur cumin may be used as an effective and safe modality for treatment in patients with MDD.” 

4. Diabetes

Turmeric is shown to lower blood glucose levels and reverse insulin resistance. For instance, an article published in Biochemistry and Biophysical Research Communications shared a study out of Auburn University that discovered curcumin suppresses glucose production in the liver. Fascinatingly, researchers proved that it’s actually 400 times more potent than Metformin (a common diabetes drug) in activating AMPK and its downstream target acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC). Turmeric acted as an anti-diabetic and antioxidant in diabetes, especially type 1 diabetes , improved metabolic function and reduced the risk of plaque buildup in the arteries of type 2 diabetes patients .

5. Cancer

Recent studies show turmeric is a powerful adversary to cancer. Curcumin shows a marked ability to inhibit cancer cell growth, boost antioxidant levels and the immune system, and kill cancer cells. It seems to work on improving mitochondrial function at a cellular level, and it improves metabolism. Even against drug-resistant strains of leukemia, curcumin caused cell death of cancer cells.

6. Skin and Aging

Turmeric has many healing properties for skin. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory so it reduces redness or other skin irritations. It’s antibacterial, so it’s great for blemishes, acne and skin balance. Turmeric is wonderful at improving the texture of the skin because it is an exfoliant but also rich in antioxidants. It’s a wonderful natural treatment inside and out!

7. Brain Health and Memory

It’s all in your head … literally. This vital organ is the fundamental keeper of everything you’re able to think, act or dream. By taking turmeric, you can improve the oxygen intake of the brain, which helps in all of the brain’s functions and processes. Turmeric is extremely healing for the brain and for increasing memory function. Not surprisingly, when your brain functions at its best, then you increase the uptake of hormones, such as seratonin and melatonin. So, by healing the basic functioning of the brain, you can also heal other mental illnesses.

Turmeric vs. Modern Medicine

Different pills and tablets on wooden spoons Turmeric curcumin is so effective at managing these health concerns that after examining the research, I found that turmeric
benefits go well beyond that of these 10 drugs
  • Anti-inflammatories
  • Anti-depressants (Prozac)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Anti-coagulants (aspirin)
  • Pain killers
  • Diabetes drugs (Metformin)
  • Arthritis medications
  • Inflammatory bowel disease drugs
  • Cholesterol drugs (Lipitor)
  • Steroids

Turmeric Dosage

Turmeric dosage mainly depends on age. For instance, adults are generally recommended to follow these guidelines: 
  • Supplement: 450 milligrams of curcumin capsules each day or up to 3 grams of turmeric root daily (divided into several doses).
  • Tea: 1 to 1.5 grams of dried root steeped in 5 ounces of water for 15 minutes twice daily.
  • Oil: ½ tablespoon of turmeric oil three times daily.
For children, it’s reported that there is “no proven or safe medicinal dose of turmeric in children.”  With that said, I recommend “culinary doses” by regularly including it into your natural health meal plan as you would any other spice or herb. This way you can rest assured that your kids get their fair share of turmeric benefits every day. To give you a feel for the dosage amount, it’s been reported that the, “Average dietary intake of turmeric in the Indian population may range between 2 to 2.5 grams, corresponding to 60 to 200 milligrams of curcumin daily. 

Turmeric Side Effects

While the pros of turmeric health benefits usually outweigh the cons, it’s important to know that there can be some side effects with turmeric. Some people report allergic reactions to turmeric, especially after skin exposure. Typically, this is experienced as a mild, itchy rash. In addition, high doses of turmeric have been observed to cause: (17)
  • Indigestion
  • Heart burn
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Liver problems
  • Increased risk of bleeding
  • Increased liver function tests
  • Hyperactive gallbladder contractions
  • Alopecia (hair loss)
  • Hypotension (lowered blood pressure)
  • Uterine contractions in pregnant women
  • Increased menstrual flow
People taking certain medications should also be careful when using turmeric in their food or supplementing with it. Turmeric may interfere with anti-coagulants like aspirin, clopidogrel and warfarin. It also can affect medications such as nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs. As with any herb or supplement, use as directed.

Turmeric Uses

Natural herbal turmeric capsules and powder You can take turmeric in many ways depending on what you want to treat. For healing and medicinal properties, it’s easiest to take in capsule form. If you want to enjoy the turmeric benefits of beauty enhancing and anti-aging qualities, add it into your face mask or buy a turmeric facial scrub. Lastly, and certainly not least, you can add turmeric to your food. Try it in soups or a marinade, or add to your rub next time you grill! It’s so versatile and delicious!

Nr 211 12 Most Functional Foods That Destroy Cancer Cells

Olive Oil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil can help to protect against, such as colon cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. It is one of the healthier oils you can have in your home for light frying and use as a salad dressing.
Just about all types of berries – including strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cranberries and raspberries – contain substances called ellagic acids and polyphenols, both of which can slow the growth of tumors. Some of the polyphenols can also help kill off cancer cells.
Cherries contain perillyl alcohol (POH), which has been found to be effective at destroying a variety of cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. When buying cherries, it is wise to choose organically grown fruit whenever possible as conventionally grown cherries often contain high levels of pesticides and other chemical compounds.
Garlic has antibacterial properties, and the theory is that it can help the body ward off cancer in a number of ways, including killing the cancer cells outright. It may also help to repair the damage done to the DNA, and help to stop cancer cells from multiplying and spreading. These are several reasons why you have to embrace this stinking rose and add it to more of your dishes.
It’s one of the anti-cancer super foods that contains Lycopene, and is high in Antioxidants that attack cancer-triggering free radicals in the body. Lycopene is known to kill Mouth Cancer cells and is linked to reduced risk of Breast, Prostate, Pancreas and Colorectal Cancers. Tip: It is actually more effective when cooked.
Green Tea
Green tea is full of the compound catechin, an agent that has been shown to protect cells from free radicals associated with cancer that can damage their DNA. The release of catechins is best from loose leaf tea, so skip the baggies and seep away cancerous agents.
The cancer blocking properties of pumpkins are well known, and there is even a campaign to plant pink pumpkins during breast cancer awareness month to remind people to eat more pumpkin. Give strong consideration to eating the seeds as well, as they contain plenty of Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps to defy cancer.
High in Beta Carotene, carrots fight many forms of cancer including Lung, Stomach, Intestinal, Bladder, Prostate, Breast, Throat and Mouth. Tip: It’s better to eat them raw rather than cooked and in moderation due to high sugar content.
More and more evidence shows that eggplant has anticancer functions, especially in the treatment of stomach cancer and cervical cancer. Eggplant contains various alkaloids, of which solanine and cucurbitacin have been shown to possess cancer-fighting abilities.
Cauliflower contains proteins, lipids, sugar, vitamins, and various minerals, such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, copper, and manganese. Eating cauliflower frequently can increase your liver’s detoxification capacity and immunity, help you avoid catching a cold, and prevent scurvy and also remove some type of cancer.
A review of studies on therapeutic foods suggested curcumin, a component of turmeric, kills tumor cells by regulating multiple cell-signaling pathways. This spice can be added to any dish: scrambled eggs, chicken, and anything else your taste buds desire.
Dark Chocolate
Antioxidants, polyphenols and proanthocyanidins are all found in significant quantities in dark chocolate. These substances limit the growth of both cancer cells and the blood vessels that feed those cells. However, these benefits are only attributed to dark chocolate containing at least 70 percent cocoa, so check product packaging carefully.

Nr 209 LADIES, something for you!

Eventually, all ladies experience difficulty with vaginal health. In any case, it turns out, foods can be the response to poor vaginal health issues. It may sound silly, but you can eat your way to a healthier vagina.
  • Cranberry juice. Loaded with acid compounds that fight off bad bacteria, cranberry juice can help you prevent and relieve urinary tract infections. But go for a natural, no-sugar-added brand to get the benefits.
  • Yogurt. Yogurt has good bacteria cultures needed for a healthy vagina. Yogurt also helps balance the pH of the vagina. Plain yogurt is fine, but you can consume any kind.
  • Sweet potatoes. Their vitamin A contributes to healthy vaginal and uterine walls and helps us produce the hormones we need to stay vibrant and energized.
  • Garlic. It’s known to be antimicrobial and they say eating it raw can help fight yeast infections. You can eat it raw, cooked, or take it in pill form.
  • Soy. The phytoestrogens in soy help keep your vagina lubricated, but don’t go for the overly processed stuff like soy burgers or nuggets. Stick with edamame, tofu, tempeh, and miso.
  • Avocados, apples, flaxseeds, and water. They are all super-healthy for many reasons, but for those who don’t like soy, remember that these four can also help you stay naturally lubricated down there.
  • Almonds and pumpkin seeds. They’re high in zinc, which can normalize your menstrual cycle and regulate hormones. Zinc can also boost your immune system and your mood.
  • Hot chilies. They contain capsaicin, which improves blood circulation and stimulates nerve endings. That’s good for arousal.
  • Guava, kiwi, oranges, and green peppers. They are full of vitamin C, which helps with stamina and keeps your sex drive going by removing the free radicals that disrupt normal sexual health.
  • Dark chocolate. Dark chocolates are high in flavonoids, which is an antioxidant. Studies have shown that women who eat a bit of dark chocolate a day report better overall sexual health.
  • Fresh fruit and veg in general. Want fewer menstrual cramps? Better skin? Easier orgasms? Eat a diet that supplies you with a variety of vitamins and minerals. The health benefits are good for your whole body, from your pinky toes to your punani to your beautiful brain.
  • Drink Water. This is a no-brainer. Being properly hydrated is good for your whole body, vagina included.
If you add just a few of these to your meals, your vagina is gonna thank you.

Clogged Arteries Stop Blood Flow
Blood carries human life with the vitamins, minerals and elements required to keep you strong. Your heart is the engine of your body and needs blood to function properly. When you have clogged arteries, arterial plaque, then your body struggles to function properly.
What happens when your automobile runs out of fuel? It stops, right? The same thing happens when your body has clogged arteries: your heart stops because it no longer has enough fuel.
Causes of Clogged Arteries
Your blood flows through tubes in your body, called arteries, which flow outward from your heart. Your heart adds oxygen to your blood to revitalize your entire system. Healthy, open arteries allow for the most consistent, uninterrupted blood flow to your entire body.
Have you ever kinked your garden hose?
Clogged arteries occur when fat deposits collect within your arteries. If it becomes really bad, the blood flow can stop completely, like when you kink a garden hose. This is when you can suffer from one of the following health problems:
  • Chest pain
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Heart attacks
  • Lower back pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Stroke

Your body needs a certain amount of fat every day to function properly. If you eat too many fat-rich foods and do not exercise, then this cholesterol can start to build up inside your arteries. Poor diet and lack of exercise can lead to clogged arteries.


Pomegranate has many great nutrients, but have there been any solid scientific studies showing that it can unclog arteries? Yes. Green Med Info named two of the many studies that have proven that pomegranate can unclog your arteries. Pomegranate can prevent artery clogging by providing the following benefits:
  • Antioxidant Properties
  • Cleanse Epithelial Cells
  • Fights Infection
Pomegranate can give your body a solid foundation, so you will never experience clogged arteries. Pomegranate can also remove clogged arteries after you suffer from the malady.


There are many forms which you can take, but pomegranate juice might be superior because it is already made, can be stored for long periods of time and can be easily drunk with your meals. Nutrients in liquids allow your body to easily convert the substance immediately. Plus, pomegranate juice tastes great. It can be mixed with other fruits for a tasty thirst explosion.
Possible pomegranate juice side effects include a runny nose, itchiness, and swelling.
If you are worrying about your health, use the tasty preventative and treating juice that has a great flavor. Drink this to stop worrying about clogged arteries: Pomegranate Juice.

Nr 206 20 Mind Blowing Reasons Why Epsom Salt Should Be In Every Home

Epsom Salts – chemically known as magnesium sulfate – are named after the spring in Surrey, England where the naturally-occurring mineral was discovered in the water. A must have natural remedy for every home, Epsom salts may be used topically or taken internally. Read on to learn about the many incredible health benefits and uses for Epsom salts.

1. Relax Your Body

Epsom salts dissolved in warm water – like those in an Epsom salt bath – are easily absorbed through the skin where they immediately go to work inside our bodies. The magnesium ions break apart from Epsom salt molecules and begin to relieve stress by promoting the production of serotonin and reducing the effects of adrenaline. Magnesium also plays a critical role in the production of energy in cells, helping us to feel invigorated without causing feelings of restlessness or anxiety.

2. Relieve Pain and Cramping

Epsom salts absorbed through the skin also work to relieve muscle tension, pain, and inflammation in joints. Submerge yourself in a warm Epsom salt bath to alleviate tension headaches or soothe abdominal cramps. Tired and sore feet will also benefit from the therapeutic warmth of an Epsom salt soak.

3. Muscle and Nerve Function

Aside from relieving tension, pain, and cramping, Magnesium sulfate has several other positive effects on the human body. It aids in many enzymatic functions, helps to regulate fluid retention in cells, and facilitates the body’s use of calcium to transmit chemical signals throughout the nervous system.

4. For Arterial Health

Epsom salts may help to improve circulation and prevent serious cardiovascular illness by decreasing inflammation and protecting the elasticity of arteries. Healthier arteries means less risk of blood clots, plaque build-up, and damage to arterial walls. Try soaking in an Epsom salt bath three to four times per week to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and improve your cardiovascular health.

5. Regulate Blood Sugar

Both magnesium and sulfate help to improve the body’s ability to produce and use insulin. Regular intake of Epsom salts – either orally or transdermally – may help to regulate blood sugar, lowering the risk of diabetes and improving your overall daily energy levels.

6. Relieves Constipation

One of Epsom salt’s more popular uses is as a saline laxative. Dissolve two tablespoons of Epsom salts into a cup of warm water and drink. Note, this remedy should not be used more than once per day. If symptoms persist for more than a few days, it is always recommended to consult with a physician.

7. Helps to Remove Splinters

To dislodge a stubborn splinter, simply soak the affected body part in warm water and Epsom salts for a few minutes. Magnesium sulfate will reduce the inflammation around the wound and soften up the splinter, making it much easier to remove.

8. Soothe Sprains and Bruises

Anti-inflammatory Epsom salts can be used to alleviate the soreness from sprains and bruises. Just add two cups of salts to your warm bath water and soak away the ache.

9. Keep Feet Healthy

It’s pretty common knowledge that soaking your feet in Epsom salts is good for soothing away aches and pains. But did you know that it can also help to treat athlete’s foot and toe nail fungal infections? Simply add a half cup of Epsom salts to warm water and soak your feet for as long as you want (or until the water gets cold) to alleviate the itching and burning and help heal feet faster.

10. Ease Discomfort of Gout

Add a couple of tablespoons of Epsom salts to hot water and soak body parts affected by gout. Magnesium sulfate quickly soaks through skin and into the swollen, aching joints to help alleviate pain and inflammation.

11. Exfoliate Your Skin

By rubbing a handful of Epsom salts over damp skin, you can easily remove dead cells, helping your skin to look healthier and feel softer. Use this treatment on hands, feet, and everything in between.

12. Natural Face Cleanser

At night before bed, mix a teaspoon of Epsom salts with your regular cleanser for an easy daily treatment .

13. Dislodge Blackheads

Use Epsom salts to remove dead skin and oil from your pores. First, you’ll want to exfoliate to remove any dead skin from around the outsides of the blemishes. Then mix one teaspoon of Epsom salts and four drops of iodine into half a cup of hot water. Stir until salts are completely dissolved and let the mixture cool until it is still warm, but not hot. Massage the mixture into skin affected with blackheads, let it dry completely, then wash your face with warm water and pat dry with a clean cloth.

14. Remove Styling Product Build-up

To remove build-up of hairspray or other styling product from your hair, mix one cup each of Epsom salts and lemon juice into a gallon of water. Cover and let the concoction sit for 24 hours before using. Then simply pour over hair and leave it on for about 15 – 20 minutes. Follow up with a wash and condition as usual.

15. Add Volume to Hair

To add body to your hair, try mixing equal parts all-natural, sulfate free deep conditioner and Epsom salts. Warm the mixture to slightly above body temperature then work through hair. Leave in for 15 – 20 minutes then rinse. Feel free to follow up this hair treatment by waving your hair around your face (like the people in those television commercials for chemical hair products) and remember: Laughter is a great natural remedy for all kinds of things!

16. Wash Pots and Pans

Pour a small amount of Epsom salts into those really-dirty dishes before you scrub them. The abrasive texture of the salt crystals will help to remove stuck-on food more easily without hurting your cookware.

17. Clean Tile and Grout

Mix equal parts Epsom salts and liquid dish detergent to create a super effective tile and grout cleaner. Apply this mixture to dirty or stained surfaces in the bathroom, kitchen, or even outside and allow it to soak in for a minute or two. Then scrub away the loosened grime and rinse clean.

18. As a Hand Wash

Mix equal parts Epsom salts and baby oil to create a moisturizing hand cleanser. Store this mixture in bottles next to all of the sinks around your home and use regularly to keep hands soft and clean.

19. Removes Detergent Build-up

Over time, laundry detergent and other contaminants may build up inside machines. Use Epsom salts to remove this unwanted gunk and keep your washer running more efficiently. Fill your empty washing machine with hot water, add a quart of clear vinegar and one cup of Epsom salts, let the machine agitate for about a minute, then stop the cycle and let the solution soak for about an hour. 

20. In The Garden

Magnesium sulfate may be used to fertilize your plants, green up your lawn, remove unwanted insect pests, and prevent slugs among other things.
