What Is Gluten?

What Is Gluten?

Gluten is a protein which is found in wheat, rye, and barley. Other grains, like oat and spelt, as well as processed foods can contain gluten as well without being labeled as such. The properties of gluten are what hold the bread and cake together. However, these same properties are what interfere with the breakdown and absorption of other nutrients. The undigested gluten can trigger your immune system and affect the intestines, which in turn can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, and other systems that are gastrointestinal related.

Sweet As… High Fructose Corn Syrup?

Sweet As… High Fructose Corn Syrup?

We’ve been told to avoid high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in our daily diets, but what is it? It is a particular type of sweetener that is derived from cornstarch. In order to create high fructose corn syrup, enzymes are added to glucose and converted into another simple sugar known as fructose.(9)  Most high fructose corn syrup is comprised of 42- 55% fructose; the rest is water or glucose.

Breakfast- Is it the Most Important Meal of the Day?

Breakfast- Is it the Most Important Meal of the Day?

Did you know that while 90% of Americans know having breakfast is important for health and function, only 49% report to eating breakfast every day.1

It’s no wonder that after sleeping for eight hours, and being without food during the night, our brain and muscles need energy and fuel to function. Breaking this fast with consumption of a healthy meal including protein and fats instead of a high carbohydrate meal has been shown to have the biggest benefit.  Research has shown the many benefits of including breakfast in your daily routine. These include weight loss, improved energy and concentration, improved physical endurance, and overall improvement of a quality diet.

Aluminum

Aluminum

The awareness of evidence regarding aluminum exposure and its negative effects on our bodies is growing.  Researchers have been linking aluminum exposure to neurological disorders such as Alzheimers, Parkinsons, ADHD, and even cancer for years.  In fact, “there has been a strong link between human exposure to aluminum and the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease for half a century or more” says Chris Exley, PhD, of Keele University in England who has been studying the impact of aluminum on the human body since 1984.1 Aluminum occurs naturally is the soil, water, and air but we are contributing to the load by manufacturing of aluminum products, power plants, pollution from industrialization, “chemtrails” from aircraft in the skies, and vaccines.

Fat is Important, Here’s Why

Fat is Important, Here’s Why

Dietary fat serves many important functions and is good for the body when the right fat is consumed.  Secondly, having excessive adipose tissue—body fat—does not denote that a person lacks self-control or will power, but is the result of an inappropriate diet.  Humans evolved with a “famine reflex” that caused metabolic changes to conserve fat and ensured survival when food was scarce.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

With winter comes the dreaded cold and flu season which seems to affect more and more each year.  The common cold is caused by over 200 different viruses that can attack the upper respiratory tract. They are spread in the air from person to person and those with a depressed immune system or nutrient deficiencies may be more prone to catching colds. Other common causes of catching a cold include: lack of sleep, emotional stress, mold exposure, an unhealthy digestive tract, and traveling.  Using antihistamine meds and decongestants just cover up symptoms and can cause other problems for patients with continued and constant use.  Instead, I recommend that you consider taking Xymogen’s new all natural OlivDefense which was designed to help your patients be prepared at the onset and during immune challenges.  OlivDefense features science-based, patented Immune Guard® blend plus elderberry and a patented olive extract to support the body’s natural immune defense mechanisms.
