What Happens to Your Body When You Drink Juice Every Day
There’s no denying that juice is tasty. But is this beloved beverage doing more harm to your health than good? A registered dietitian weighs in.
Juice is a delicious and refreshing beverage whether you prefer it fresh-squeezed or straight out of the carton. But is a daily cup of juice good for you? Fruit juices are often considered less healthy than their whole-food counterparts due to higher sugar concentration, more calories and less fiber—which can reduce the satiety of these beverages and, over time, could contribute to weight gain and obesity.

The Best Fruit for Your Gut Health, According to a Gastroenterologist
Although we’re supposed to shoot for 25 to 38 grams of fiber per day, a recommendation based on our total calorie consumption, the average American only actually consumes about 10 to 15 grams per day, Harvard Medical School experts report.
And while it might seem more pressing to keep an eye on protein levels – or whatever appears to be the “hot” macronutrient of the moment – or try some other trendy diet, making an effort to eat enough fiber is never going out of style. That’s because the health benefits of fiber suggest that it can have a beneficial impact on our gut health, digestion, bone strength, weight, risk for several chronic diseases and even our longevity.
We’re not talking about suffering through glasses of water mixed with a chalky fiber supplement, though. You can score your daily dose from a wide variety of high-fiber foods… (Continue to full article)
Should You Take Turmeric Supplements?
Turmeric is touted as a “cure-all” spice that can do everything from healing your gut, boosting memory, and reducing inflammation. But studies on the health benefits of this golden root have yielded mixed results.

One does not have to be an anti-vaxxer to see and understand that COVID vaccines are not needed. They are not required legally or for any medical or public health reason to treat or prevent COVID-19. There is a broad range of both natural and pharmaceutical treatments widely available, many already proven to be very useful.
Now comes some excellent news for the human race. There is an official study in Acre, Brazil that has doctors amazed at how fast COVID infected patients got better after nebulizing with 3 grams of sodium bicarbonate (widely available baking soda) in 100 ml of water administered in a nebulizer.
However, the bad news is that there are powerful forces, which we will discuss below, that hate good news and will do everything in their power to censor useful medical information… (Continue to full article)
Lesser-Known Spices for Natural Cancer Prevention and Treatment!
Since ancient times, spices have been used to prevent and treat many diseases. There are many spices known to cure many incurable diseases. There have been voyagers, including Christopher Columbus, who explored the globe searching for treasured spices.
Many documented studies prove that more than adding flavors, these valued commodities are revered for their potential health benefits. The antioxidant properties and the biological effects arise from spice’s ability to induce changes in cellular processes. This includes those involved with cell division, drug metabolism, differentiation, apoptosis, and immunocompetence.
Some researchers suggest that spices may be a key to determining the balance between pro-and anticancer factors that regulate risk and tumor behavior. Recently, a rise has been noted in household use of spices, and about 75% of people in the U.S. believe this dietary approach reduces the risk of diseases, including cancer … (Continue to full article)
