Our history textbooks have always been full of stories about Greek gods and warriors – all of whom consumed olive oil. Studies show that people in Greece consume an average of 26 liters of olive oil every year. While you’d think that oil is unhealthy, olive oil is considered as one of the world’s healthiest oils.
Studies have shown people tend to live longer and healthier life when olive oil becomes a staple part of their diet. Premium quality Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is naturally obtained using various mechanized cold-pressed techniques. All of these are aimed to keep its rich properties and nutritive value intact.
As pollution levels rise on a daily basis, so does our stress levels. As human beings caught up in our hectic lifestyles, we give less or no attention to our diet. The end result? More stress.
Ask yourself this: Doesn’t aging skin, brittle nails or thinning hair irritate you? The root cause is lack of Biotin, caused by… you guessed it, stress.
Wanting to live a long and healthy life is on everyone's wish list. We spend our lives in this pursuit. From diet to exercise and even surgery, our entire lives are spent trying to prevent ageing and its effects. However, what most of us don't know is that consuming selenium can not only help us in our quest but also contribute to our body with long term benefits.
Let's face it, most of us lead sedentary lives. We sit during our commutes and are seated while working throughout the day. While we can alleviate the bad effects of this lifestyle by walking every 30 minutes and taking the stairs instead of the elevator, when it comes to work pressure, most of us would prefer to remain seated and meet the deadline instead of taking a walk. All this coupled with poor posture and bad roads result in the most common ailment for all - back pain. Lack of exercise further aggravates the issue, creating a truly vicious cycle. Popping pills is also not the solution as most non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs come with a host of side-effects that crop up with continuous usage. So what is the solution? Well, the long-term solution is better posture, exercise and a more active lifestyle, while for the short-term the best solution apart from NSAIDs is a bromelain supplement like Bromelain Plus from Pure Nutrition.
An unfortunate fact about ageing is that our digestive tract starts getting weaker. Foods that we polished off just a few years ago now produce heartburn, gas and indigestion. The body also loses its ability to extract maximum nutrition from one's meals. One finds oneself reaching more often than not for over the counter antacids and medications which can come with their own side effects and problems. For those who love to eat, this can prove to be a challenge indeed. But a slow digestive system should not necessarily mean that one has to skip their favourite foods and meals. All you need to do is supplement your diet with digestive enzyme supplements like those from Pure Nutrition.
According to the Global Asthma Report-2018, 339 million people are affected by asthma globally. This means that 339 million suffer from a combination of symptoms including wheezing, shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, and coughing that is caused by the inflammation in our airways and respiratory system. This inflammation is called asthma. While asthma is for the most part, manageable; sufferers do have to end up relying on strong drugs just to breathe properly and as these drugs come with their own side effects, asthma ends up becoming a lifelong challenge. However, there are some natural remedies that one can take to control one's asthma with very little side effects. One of them resides in our own spice shelf - Nigella sativa or kalonji as it is commonly known.
