Women's Healthy - Breast Cancer Prevention

In the face of epidemics, scientific research has often empowered people to defend themselves --- choosing to give up smoking to reduce the risk of getting cancer and other heart and lungs diseases, and lowering blood pressure to ward off strokes. 
Although women have felt powerless to prevent breast cancer in the past, extensive research in recent decades, 1990s- 2015, has armed them with important information and useful tools for protection. Through these widespread studies, nutrition is emerging as a key component of preventing  breast cancer. 
Nutrition might even be the most powerful measure the majority of women can take against breast cancer.
(Genetic predisposition is another question but nutritional intervention can still play an important role.)
Researchers at the Simone Protective Cancer Institute of New Jersey point out that 90 percent of all cancers could be traced back to smoking and dietary, or nutritional, factors. 
Diets rich in nutritional chemopreventive substances -- nutrients and phytochemicals that delay , forestall , or even reverse the growth cycle of cancerous cells -- are an important avenue to cancer prevention. 

So- while age and family history are associated with an increased risk of breast cancer, much research suggests that women are NOT HELPLESS in the face of this disease. They can take charge through nutritional programs designed to prevent the cancer from ever occurring. 

PHYTOCHEMICAL : A large, general class of compounds that includes vitamins, minerals, and other naturally occurring nutrients and non-nutritive substances in plants. 

Some of the latest research concerning breast cancer prevention underscores the importance of diets rich in various superfoods and nutrients. The recommendations include olive oil, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and other cruciferous vegetables ( for their indole-3-carbinol), carrots ( for their carotenoids) , fish oil ( for its docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, an omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid) , green tea ( for its polyphenols and catechins), foods high in folic acid and the  B-vitamins, raw fruits and vegetables containing beta-carotene and glucaric acid, and foods low in saturated fats. 
One of the newer foods to hit this list of chemopreventive substance is the pomegranate, a rich source of ellagic acid and related compounds. 

 Ellagic Acid is a natural nutrient found in many potent anti-cancer fruits and nuts. By itself it is not a cancer treatment, but it is important to understand the importance of this nutrient when putting together your cancer treatment and especially your “cancer diet.”

How It Works
Ellagic acid is a naturally occurring polyphenolic constituent found in 46 different fruits and nuts such as grapes, pomegranate, red raspberry, strawberry, blueberry and walnuts. “[Ellagic acid] prevents the binding of carcinogens to DNA and strengthens connective tissue, which may keep cancer cells from spreading.” Ellagic Acid has the ability to inhibit mutations within a cell’s DNA. Furthermore, it is considered to be a cancer inhibitor which has the ability to cause apoptosis or normal cell death in cancer cells.

And today I want to share a little bit with you on acidity in the body. Now here's a little chemistry for you. When you are neutral you are at pH seven. Anything that's above seven is considered alkaline. Anything that's below seven is considered acidic. Now we are neutral at pH of seven as human beings. And anytime we get below seven we're considered to be in an acidic state. And most of the chronic diseases that we face today are attributed to having a highly acidic diet. Now you might be asking yourself what is considered acidic. Anything that has full fat dairy, soda, sugary drinks, most meats unless they're lean. And cheeses. So those are just a few of the things that can actually put your body into more of an acidic state. 
Now what are alkaline things. Produce, fresh produce for the most part will help to correct that acidity in your body. You can also add lemon which you might be thinking well lemon is acidic. But it's actually a form of acid that helps to normalize your pH. Another thing that's really helpful is apple cider vinegar. You can add a teaspoon to about five to six ounces of water. And that can help balance your acidity as well. So if you are thinking "am I acidic or not"? The answer is probably yes because most of us are. There is so much refined processed food in our diet. So make it a point to get fresh fruits and vegetables in every single day. Add apple cider vinegar to your water. And maybe throw in a little bit of lemon. And enjoy some fresh juice and you'll be well on your way to helping to normalize your pH and be healthy.

How Pomegranate Affects Women's Health,

Today the lovely pomegranate is recognised as a source of numerous benefits specific to women. 

Recent research suggests that the pomegranate, rich in flavonoids, may be effective at treating and possibly preventing breast cancer.

Moreover, pomegranate may help with the depression and bone loss associated with menopause. 

Phytoestrogen from pomegranate seeds have been shown to reduce some of the symptoms of menopause through gentle, mild stimulation of estrogen receptors -- hormone receptors that, following menopause, lose effectiveness.

Click here to read e-book . (Page 33-43) ....

Page 44: The concentrations of bio-identical estrogens (in the seeds) and phytoestrogen (in the fruit and juice) are not adequate to raise concern about promoting the growth of breast cancer. According to published studies, unlike its 17-beta sister, 17-alpha-estradiol does not promote cancer. 

In the two-thirds of breast cancers that are estrogen-receptor positive, the body's estrogen stimulate the proliferation of tumor cells. Recent laboratory research has found that the phytoestrogens in pomegranate can alter the way cells respond to the body's own estrogen. And polyphenolic substances in pomegranates have been shown to block the activity of the enzyme aromatase, which is involved in the synthesis of estrogen. Both laboratory findings suggest that the pomegranate may have a place in breast cancer treatment regimens. 

Scientists studied the effect of pomegranate seed extract on breast cancer cells in a laboratory environment. They discovered that the extract reduced the activity of 17-beta-estradiol -- the estrogen of concern in breast cancer -- by 50 percent.  Additionally, breast cancer cells that experienced this reduction in estrogen stimulation died with a significantly greater frequency than normal cells. 

The beautiful pomegranate rightly deserves its place as a symbol of fertility, women’s health, beauty, and healing.

Ancient secret for hormonal balance

Mankind has revered the magical, mystical pomegranate since the dawn of recorded history. Ancient Greeks, Romans, and the peoples of China, India, and the Middle East found its properties to be life-giving and invigorating.
Furthermore, the pomegranate fruit has been revered for thousands of years in all the world’s major religions as The Fruit of Life, springing from The Garden of Paradise. As the traditional symbol of fertility and rebirth, it was also thought to bestow invincibility upon the person who enjoyed its glittering sweet tartness. It is a fruit of legend and power – a sacred symbol of human civilisation. This fruit, known as ‘the jewel of winter’, was used for centuries in Middle Eastern folk medicine to treat many symptoms.
Modern science has now shown that pomegranates contain a rich and diverse range of beneficial and protective substances, including phytoestrogens, polyphenols, elligatannins, and anthocyanins. These compounds are all powerful antioxidants.

A woman’s elixir

Traditionally, the pomegranate has been renowned for being one of the most powerful elixirs for women’s health, hormonal balance, beauty, and fertility. The pomegranate assists women of all ages – it enhances fertility, balances menstrual cycles, corrects PMS, and alleviates menopausal hot flushes and night sweats.
In herbal tradition, there is a guiding principle called ‘the Doctrine of Signatures’ – relating specifically to the similarity of plants and their medicinal uses to parts of the body. By careful observation, one can intuit the healing properties of a plant from some aspect of its ‘nature’, appearance, or place of growing. According to the renowned Greek healer, Galen, this is “the ancient idea that the Creator left a signature on the plants to tell you what they’re for.”
Applying this, the Doctrine of Signatures can give greater appreciation about the correlation between the pomegranate’s colour and form and its corresponding medicinal properties. The reddish, round fruit is filled with many arils (seeds surrounded by fluid-filled sacs). These arils are encased within delicate inner membranes, very similar to the order, structure and appearance of the milk glands within the breast. The pomegranate also reminds us of the shape and structure of the ovaries, with its many follicles. There is another correlation with the similarity of the colour and shape of the heart and with the red juice reminiscent of the blood.
Far from just a quaint notion, modern science has actually discovered that the benefits of the pomegranate from its seeds, juice, peel, flowers, and stem, do indeed have a profound impact on breast health, fertility, hormonal balance, skin rejuvenation, and heart health.

Hormones and menopause

The flowers, peel, juice and pericarp (the ripened walls of the plant’s ovary) all contain compounds that especially help to support and modulate hormones and hormonal balance. One of the most powerful parts of this plant is oil extracted from its tiny seeds, which contains the greatest variety of phytoestrogens found anywhere in nature.
About 80 percent of the oil contains a very rare fatty acid, punic acid. This is similar to conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which has potent fat-burning and anti-inflammatory abilities. The seeds have the highest plant source of the oestrogen, oestrone; plus, the main steroidal oestrogen in pomegranate seed oil is 17 alpha-oestradiol, a bio-identical oestrogen that is hundreds of times weaker (and safer) than other forms of oestrogen. In fact, 17 alpha-oestradiol is the mildest of all steroidal oestrogens.
The wide variety of safe phytoestrogens makes the pomegranate unique. Not only does it contain a wider range of phytoestrogens than any other plant, the oestrogenic richness of pomegranate encompasses additional steroidal oestrogens, such as oestradiol, oestriol, and oestrone, with an assortment of many phytoestrogenic flavonoids.
Dr Ephraim Lansky, one of the world’s leading researchers and experts in the health benefits of pomegranates, says, “The entire fruit is laced with oestrogens of various potencies in varying amounts. The mildest forms are the most common while the strongest kind is the rarest. There are over 10 oestrogenic compounds found in the pomegranate fruit. Oestrogen is defined as anything that binds to oestrogen receptors. The forms that can bind but not stimulate a strong oestrogenic effect are considered anti-oestrogenic and prevent stronger ones from having an effect. This is important for modulating diseases that are provoked by too much oestrogen.”
The ability of the many components found in the pomegranate to help safely and modulate and regulate hormones is certainly good news for women of all ages. These weaker and safer forms of oestrogens (while helping to stimulate the less responsive menopausal oestrogen receptors) will not contribute to oestrogen dominance. Pomegranate’s oil, as well as its juice, peel and flowers all help reduce many of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance. With the added progesterone- like benefits, women can experience more balanced hormones.

Beat inflammation

Another challenge to women’s health is the increasing incidence of chronic inflammation. Inflammatory conditions include: endometriosis, fibroids, polycystic ovarian syndrome, arthritis, autoimmune disease, asthma, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer. Inflammation goes hand-in-hand with free radical damage. Dr Lansky developed a process creating potent pomegranate extracts combining fermented pomegranate juice, peel, leaves, flowers, and seed. This combined antioxidant activity has a powerful synergy.
Research demonstrates that the pomegranate extract’s anti-inflammatory effect inhibited the inflammatory enzyme COX-2 by an impressive 31 to 44 percent. Since oestrogen dominance also exacerbates inflammatory conditions, this superior fermented extract, in addition to its hormonal benefits, also has a huge impact on reducing inflammation. This is another huge plus for women’s hormonal health!

Breast health

The pomegranate is a paradoxical fruit. It has beneficial oestrogenic properties as well as anti-oestrogenic properties. Pomegranate extracts are able to effectively kill both oestrogen-positive and oestrogen-negative breast cancer cells. Dr Lansky reported in Breast Cancer Research & Treatment that, according to published studies, his unique pomegranate extracts selectively inhibited or killed the growth of breast cancer cells in culture. His ongoing research has demonstrated the extracts initiate eight different actions or mechanisms that can prevent breast cancer, as well as help in the treatment of breast cancer:
* Suppresses breast cancer cells
* Interferes with cancer’s growth cycle
* Inhibits products of hormones that stimulate cell growth
* Stops tumour cell invasion
* Initiates apoptosis (cell death)
* Promotes cell differentiation
* Has anti-angiogenesis properties (stopping the growth of blood vessels to tumours)
* Acts as an aromatase inhibitor (stopping the fat cells from making oestrogen)
According to Dr Lansky, “Pomegranates are unique in that the hormonal combinations inherent in the fruit seem to be helpful both for the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. Pomegranates seem to replace needed oestrogen often prescribed to protect postmenopausal women against heart disease and osteoporosis, while selectively destroying oestrogen-dependent cancer cells.”

Ovarian cancer hope

A yet unpublished study conducted at Yale University found impressive results with pomegranate extract and ovarian cancer cells. The study used the most virulent ovarian cancer lines, which had been resistant to all forms of treatment. The pomegranate extract was able to inhibit the cancer growth. Other types of cancers have responded positively in studies using pomegranate extracts, including prostate, stomach, lung cancers, and leukaemia.

Vaginal dryness

Without adequate lubrication, vaginal tissue becomes dry and thin. Besides painful intercourse, it can also lead to incontinence, bladder infections, and pelvic floor problems. The only really effective solution is a vaginal oestriol cream, which is not advised for women diagnosed with breast cancer, or at high risk of breast cancer since. Even though it is a weaker form of oestrogen, it can still increase oestrogen levels.
This is where pomegranate comes to the rescue. Dr Earl Surwit of the University of Arizona’s College of Medicine conducted a study looking for alternatives to oestrogen creams, and found that a pomegranate lipid complex successfully restored vaginal lubrication and healthy vaginal tissue. It also had a positive effect on incontinence and helped to strengthen pelvic floor muscles. In every way, the pomegranate extract was as effective as oestrogen creams, without raising oestrogen levels.
Treatment program: Use pomegranate seed oil, both topically, applying 2-4 drops daily to the vulva, and intravaginally. In addition, use a good pomegranate seed extract to help balance the entire hormonal system. Women who have been used this combination have reported an unexpected bonus: to their delight, they have experienced increased libido!

Glowing skin

Pomegranate seed oil has many cosmetic benefits, including the ability to restore epithelial tissue, which means it helps repair and stimulate the regeneration of new skin cells. It can be used topically, directly on the hands and face, as well as orally, as a dietary supplement to:
* Nourish and revitalise your skin and body
* Stall the effects of ageing while strengthening and supporting your immune system
* Soothe minor irritation as it smooths away wrinkles

1.1 What Are Goji Berries? 
A raw goji berry is about the size of the tip of your pinky finger, if not smaller. However, these size berries are difficult to find in North America and are native to parts of Asia (usually in China) and Europe.
The Health Claims 
Goji berries have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, says health and nutrition expert Rosanna Lee. 
Some even claim these berries are natural remedies for diabetes, hypertension, malaria or even fever. However, Lee says a lot of these claims may not be true. "At present, there is still inconclusive evidence from research for such claims to be made."
They Have Other Names
Sometimes goji berries are called wolf berries. They have also been referred to Chinese wolfberries and Tibetan goji.
Where Can I Buy Them? 
Typically, goji berries are found in dried packages or sold by weight at bulk food stores, specialty food stores, herbal stores or at markets in Chinatown, for example.
What Do They Taste Like?
Goji berries have a natural tinge of sweetness with a very slight herb-like aftertaste. They also contain tiny seeds (which contain fibre) that add a nice texture to your meals.
How Do You Eat Them?
You can eat them raw or soak them in hot water before munching. Others prefer adding goji berries to trail mixes, smoothies or as a garnish on cereals, salads or yogurts. Basically, goji berries can be baked, cooked, steamed, and processed in any way after they are washed.
But They Can Be Expensive 
A 500-gram bag of dried goji berries costs about $15 to $20 at most natural food stores and online. However, prices may vary depending on claims of whether they are organic, naturally sourced, or combined with other ingredients to make a unique trail mix, for example. Organic goji berries have been known to sell for $30 to $40, but you can buy the cheapest bags at local Asian stores.
Healthy, Glowing Skin?
Similar to the benefits you get from eating other berries, goji berries are loaded with beta-carotene (a pigment found in plants and fruits) which helps promote healthy skin.
Protect Your Health ... All Over Your Body 
Goji berries have also been known to help boost the immune system and protect the eyes — talk about a super fruit. And like other berries, goji berries are also an excellent source of vitamin C and can reduce tough cold symptoms.
Packed With Antioxidants 
Goji berries are an excellent source of antioxidants because of their oxygen radical absorbance cpacity (ORAC) value. An ORAC value indicates a food's antioxidant power on a relative scale, Lee says.
Yes, They Are Healthy 
As a plus, goji berries are low in calories, fat-free and are packed with fibre — which also helps you manage weight and go the bathroom on a regular basis.
2.1 Nutritional Value and Reputed Benefits of Raw Chocolate in Raw Culture
The much touted nutritional benefits or raw cacao range from reducing cataracts to improving heart function to alleviating stress. The theobromine naturally found in raw cacao is a mild, non-addictive stimulant that some believe can treat depression. It may cause the brain to produce more of a neurotransmitter called anandamide which would account for the euphoric sensation some feel when indulging in chocolate. Not much is known about how the ancient civilizations of the Americas used chocolate, but it was certainly treasured by them for medicinal purposes. Nowadays we know that raw cacao is certainly very high in antioxidant flavanoids, sulfur and magnesium. The essential fatty acids found in chocolate may help the body to raise good cholesterol and lower bad cholesterol.

Amongst the loftiest claims in raw food culture is that raw cacao (without added sugar or dairy products) will reduce your risk of cancer as the high levels of antioxidants reduce the amount of free radicals in the body.
Can You Trust the Hype About Raw Cacao?
Raw cacao is just like most things in the world of health and nutrition- the information changes fast. You need to keep on top of the news. There are many that believe that chocolate, even in it's purest form of raw cacao, is still not very good for you, perhaps even toxic. The stimulant quality may agitate kidney and liver functioning. Some tests find it to be addictive, leading to mood swings and other withdrawal symptoms when not consumed regularly. Sexual dysfunction has also been listed as a possible side effect of chocolate intake- yikes! Certainly you must never blindly trust the information given to you by someone who is selling the product. Conduct your own research and see what the experts are saying.
Though chocolate may not be the knight in shining armor that so many of us wish it was, when eaten in moderation, it doesn't seem to be causing too much harm either. To play it safe, consume chocolate on special occasions and look for your magnesium and antioxidants elsewhere.

3.1 Maca is the common name for Lepidium meyenii, a plant in the broccoli family. ‘Maca root’ refers to the root of the plant, which resembles a turnip. Maca is divided into categories based on the color of the root, which can be red, black, pink or yellow. Maca has historically been grown in Peru.
Maca has traditionally been used as an aphrodisiac. It has been used all over the world and affects both genders. It does not work through hormones, and does not increase testosterone or estrogen. Men supplementing maca have been known to experience an increase in sperm production.
Maca also appears to be a potent suppressor of prostate hypertrophy, with potency similar to finasteride, a synthetic drug for the treatment of enlarged prostates. Preliminary research also suggests maca can protect the brain from damage, improve bone health, and even improve cognitive ability in healthy people.
Further research is needed to determine the main mechanism of maca.
Since the majority of research on maca comes from Peru, replicated research from other regions would go a long way toward confirming maca’s effects. Maca exports are important to Peru’s economy. Sometimes, new evidence regarding exports can be manipulated, as was the case with Policosanol. There is, however, no evidence to suggest tampering with studies on maca.
How to Take
Recommended dosage, active amounts, other details
The standard dose for maca is 1,500-3,000mg.
Maca can be supplemented by eating maca root, or through a maca extract. Extracts should be water or ethyl acetate-based.
Maca should be taken daily, alongside food.
Traditionally, maca is treated as a food product, rather than a dietary supplement. Animal studies use 1,000-2,200mg/kg bodyweight doses of maca, which translates into:
  • 10.9-24g of the maca vegetable for a 150lb person
  • 14.5-32g of the maca vegetable for a 200lb person
  • 18.1-40g of the maca vegetable for a 250lb person


Currently, the only evidence investigating a link between Maca consumption and Pregnancy is one conducted in mice where 1g/kg lyophilized (2.16g/kg dry weight) Maca, correlating to traditional usage amounts and consumed prior to and shortly after fertilization, noted increased litter size without any influence on gender ratios and not associated with any adverse pup morphology or viability.[60] This was independent of any increases in implantation rates, the fertility index, or pup survival; all of which were similar between groups. No human evidence on safety nor adverse reports appear to exist. 
Currently not known if it is safe for pregnancy or not, but appears to be somewhat promising to enhance female fertility based on animal studies

Top 10 Proven Spirulina Benefits 

Not everyone can get their hands on the Hawaiian variety, but fortunately spirulina that’s regularly produced also includes some pretty unbelievable health benefits for people who regularly consume it.

1. Detoxes Heavy Metals (especially Arsenic)

Affecting people all over the globe, chronic arsenic toxicity is a problem. According to the World Health Organization, the United States is one of the countries affected by inorganic arsenic that is naturally present at high levels.
Arsenic toxicity is an even bigger problem in the Far East. In the words of Bangladeshi researchers, “Millions of people in Bangladesh, India, Taiwan and Chile are consuming high concentration of arsenic through drinking water, and thousands of them have already developed chronic arsenic poisoning.” 
In fact, up to 3% of the entire nation of Bangladesh showed clinical signs of arsenic poisoning alone! As Bangladeshi researchers pointed out, “there is no specific treatment” for arsenic poisoning, which is why they evaluated alternatives like blue-green algae.
After giving 24 patients affected by chronic arsenic poisoning spirulina extract (250 mg) plus zinc (2 mg) twice daily, they compared the results with 17 patients who took a placebo and found that the spirulina-zinc combination worked wonderfully. Ultimately, the participants experienced a 47% decrease of arsenic in their body!

2. Eliminates Candida

According to researchers, “Candida species belong to the normal microbiota of an individual’s mucosal oral cavity, gastrointestinal tract and vagina.” (What does that mean?! Well, without a healthy microflora balance in our body, we are simply much more susceptible to sickness and disease.
In fact, leaky gut syndrome and improper digestion are directly connected to microfloral imbalance. Not only is invasive candidiasis the leading cause of mycosis-related death in the United States, candida overgrowth has become the hallmark sign for most autoimmune diseases today. 
Because of our shift toward a diet rich in sugar and unnatural ingredients, antimicrobial resistance and ineffective antifungal drugs, we have seen a significant rise in yeast infections since the 1980s.
Thankfully, spirulina can help. Several animal studies have shown that it’s an effective anti-microbial agent, particularly for candida. 
Specifically, spirulina benefits have been shown to promote the growth of healthy bacterial flora in the intestines, which in turn inhibits Candida from thriving. Additionally, the immune-strengthening properties of spirulina will help the body eliminate Candida cells. 

3. Improves HIV/AIDS

Up until recently, epidemiologists have been puzzled trying to understand why people in Japan, Korea and Chad have relatively low HIV/AIDS rates. One possible explanation, revealed in a 2012 study published in the Journal of Applied Phycology, may be the amount of algae people in these areas regularly consume!
When researchers took 11 HIV patients who have never taken antiretrovirals, they split the participants into three groups: one that was assigned to eat 5 g of brown seaweed every day, one that was to eat 5 g of spirulina, and one that ate a combination of both.  After the three-month trial period was complete, two key findings were discovered:
  1. Absolutely no adverse effects were experienced from both seaweed varieties and the combination.
  2. CD4 cells (T-helper white blood cells that fight infection and are used to stage HIV) and HIV-1 viral load (another HIV biomarker) remained stable.
The results were so promising that one participant volunteered to continue the study for an additional 10 months, and this participant actually benefited from “clinically significant improvement in CD4 and decreased HIV viral load”!

4. Helps Prevent Cancer

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, “A number of animal and test tube studies suggest that spirulina increases production of antibodies, infection-fighting proteins, and other cells that improve immunity and help ward off infection and chronic illnesses such as cancer.” 
This doesn’t come as a surprise as more than 70 peer-reviewed articles have been published in the scientific literature evaluating spirulina’s ability to effect cancer cells! 
In an article published this past April, Czech Republic scientists pointed out that, in addition to its ability to control blood cholesterol levels, “Spirulina is also rich in tetrapyrrolic compounds closely related to bilirubin molecule, a potent antioxidant and anti-proliferative agent.” 
When tested on human pancreatic cells, these researchers discovered that, “Compared to untreated cells, experimental therapeutics significantly decreased proliferation of human pancreatic cancer cell lines in vitro in a dose-dependent manner.” Essentially, this proves that consuming spirulina can help prevent developing various cancers!

5. Lowers Blood Pressure 

Phycocyanin is a pigment found in the spirulina that scientists have discovered possesses antihypertensive effects (it lowers blood pressure).  Japanese researchers claim that this is because consuming the blue-green algae reverses endothelial dysfunction in metabolic syndrome.
I find this extremely promising for Americans because metabolic syndrome has rapidly become one of the main causes of preventable disease today, as it raises one’s risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and stroke. 

6. Reduces Cholesterol

Along those same lines, spirulina benefits have also been shown to prevent atherosclerosis and reduce elevated blood cholesterol levels.
A recent animal study published in The Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology took rabbits, fed them a high cholesterol diet (HCD) containing 0.5% cholesterol for four weeks, and then fed them a HCD with 1% or 5% spirulina for an additional eight weeks. 
After the eight-week trial was complete, LDL levels decreased by 26% in the group eating 1% of spirulina and 41% in the group eating 5% spirulina, which heavily suggests that the more we eat the more benefits we will receive! Serum triglycerides and total cholesterol were also significantly reduced.

7. Lowers Chance of Stroke

In the study above, researchers also discovered that the spirulina supplementation lowered intimal aorta surface by 33% to 48%, which suggests that it can prevent atherosclerosis and subsequent stroke. 
It’s important to remember that this clinical trial was conducted on animals that were still eating a HCD, and it highlights that regular spirulina consumption can literally reverse the damage done by eating a poor diet. You can only imagine the heart health benefits that would be experienced in those individuals who have a balanced diet!

8. Boosts Energy

When you look at the chemical composition of spirulina, it’s no wonder that people who regularly consume it have an abundance of energy. Dr. Oz recommends combining 1 tsp spirulina powder with 12 oz lime juice and freezing the mixture in ice cube trays for a healthy boost.
According to Dr. Oz, spirulina and lime enhance energy performance because they unlock sugar from our cells and, when frozen, the cold from the ice boosts metabolic energy while giving our bodies a “wake-up call.” 

9. Speeds Up Weight Loss

Diets high in nutrient-dense protein-rich foods like spirulina promote weight loss and low-fat stores through a variety of mechanisms. Because it takes more energy to metabolize, for example, eating protein helps maintain lean tissue and contributes to fat burning.
It can also curb hunger and overweight people seem to benefit the most.  To maximize this benefit, try eating your high protein spirulina in the morning or during midday instead of at night.

10. Alleviates Sinus Issues

Known as allergic rhinitis, spirulina benefits the body by reducing the inflammation that causes people to experience sinus problems, according to numerous studies.  Compared to placebo trials, spirulina is effective at reducing itching, nasal discharge, nasal congestion and sneezing.

Clearly, the higher your score, the healthier you are (and probably the higher your Phase Angle **); the lower you score, the more you'll benefit from this blog site's posts.

If you scored below 10, you're a prime candidate for taking every concept in this blog seriously and going at whatever pace you need to apply the Water Secret to your life.

Bear in mind that it may take time for your body to respond to a shift in your lifestyle, however great or small. Give yourself a breaking-in period for you to establish these habits forever. 

In fact, some of these habits can create new neuronal pathways in your body. That's right : the brain is NOT as hardwired as we previously thought. 

The moment you decide to adapt these ideas to your life is the moment you begin to make physical, neurochemical, and hormonal changes in your body for the better---ones that will support your goal of bringing out your absolute best. Small changes add up and can have a big impact. Virtually everyone can benefit from embracing this principle, including those who would say they lead healthy, happy lives, or who scored above a 30.

Take Note of the answers in the quiz that get you zero, 0 , points. let those be your focal points as you move forward. 

For example, you may look pretty good now, but  you know that your stressful life is going to catch up with you and start bringing down that appearance and energy level if you don't learn to cope better. You can always do better, because there is no such thing as a perfect 10. It's simply a benchmark. 

No matter where you  are on the spectrum of health, remember that you've visit this blog for a reason. A little voice inside you is telling you that it's time to make a change. Whatever that change may be, understanding the Water Secret will be your launching pad.  

** Phase Angle.
 Is a marker used to determine how well a person/patient is. "Phase Angle" (PA) -- a new diagnostic tool used in many research circles to DETERMINE the CONDITION of the BODY, specifically the BODY'S CELLS. 

Your Phase Angle tells you how strong every cell in your body is right this second.

The essence of the Water Secret is the following : vibrant health from the inside out lies in maintaining strong cells that can attract and keep water the way younger cells do.

If you can repair your cell membranes ( and I mean all cells, from brain cells and heart cells to connective tissue and your outermost skin cells that present you to the world) while attracting water and nutrients to them, you can fight aging  and disease.

Working Together With A Group Of Millionaires ------

Do you want to work together with a group of millionaires in the BOOMING Global Business ?

Dear friends, How are you being affected by what's happening with the economy? How is your job being affected by the current economic meltdown?

I have an Internet business together with a group of millionaires with an international, rapidly expanding company. I make money online so I can spend with my family, travel and vacations.

What Do You Do?

Do you see an opportunity for yourself in Jeunesse Global?

When would you like to get started?

Do i feel fulfilled doing network marketing...a resounding yes, the amount of passive income, thank you from helping other succeed,I received everyday is priclesss....the ability to be part of a company we have fed more than 500,000 destitute children around the world and build more than 650 schools only over the last 7 so rare...which company in the world would fully paid for 8300 people for a Mediterranean Cruise...
When you're really in the industry and you do it right, you will meet many veterans, and yes, i have met many veterans who have received passive income for more than 20 years in their companies...
This question should really be answered only by those who has done it successfully. Those who have no success before are just giving opinions...
I always say this, if you want to listen for advice, only ask those who have succeeded...
When many people want to start a business, they consult their parents, their wives, their friends who have no success at all....naturally the advice would hold no value if they have no successful experiences to share....
If you ask unsuccessful affiliate marketers, they will say it's lousy as they did not make any money...if you ask unsuccessful network marketers, its obvious you will hear it does not work....
The most important skill in any business is always marketing...internet marketing..refers to selling on the internet, so if you have internet marketing skill, you should be able to succeed online...but if you are good at teach internet marketing skills to people then using network marketing is a good model for passive income...
This is a long one but I feel it's important to be clear, detailed, well researched and frank.=)
