Importance of Magnesium
Posted by James Quinn

Importance of Magnesium

   An average human body contains about 25 grams of magnesium in it.  Slightly more than half of that is contained in the skeleton alone (50%-60%) with the rest contained in muscle, soft tissues, and bodily fluids.  Magnesium and chlorophyll are both amazing detoxifiers in the body; escorting toxins and heavy metals such as mercury and lead from the body.  So its interesting that the root word magnes means magnet or magnetic.  Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical functions in the body; including some of the most important ones such as regulating heartbeat rhythm.   Magnesium deficiency, also known as...

Chlorophyll - Vegan Vampire Blood

Chlorophyll - Vegan Vampire Blood

  Chlorophyll is to a healthy person as blood is to a vampire.  A vampire may be fictional but the analogy is astoundingly accurate on a molecular level.  The photo above shows a hemoglobin molecule next to that of chlorophyll.  These two molecules are astoundingly similar and perform similar functions in entirely different groups of organisms. One is built around magnesium (Mg) while the other centers around Iron (Fe).  Lets compare one primary function of the two. Hemoglobin- the iron-containing oxygen-transport metalloprotein in the red blood cells of all vertebrates (with the exception of the fish family Channichthyidae) as well as the tissues of some...

Alkaline Diet For Healthier Bones

Bones play an important role in maintaining cardiovascular systemic balance.  Blood and fluids must remain slightly alkaline.  Our arterial blood PH needs to stay in a very small range; (7.4 plus minus only .05 ph units).  One main rescue mechanism in maintaining homeostasis is the mineral content of the skeleton itself.     Even a slight eccess in acidity over time can lead to significant bone damage. Todays American diet is net acid forming and research suggests that this can lead to significant bone loss.  Modern diets are heavy in protein, fats and carbohydrates while lacking in essential minerals such as iron and...

An Alkaline Diet For Longevity

   There seemingly endless articles on both sides of the argument as to the precise benefits of a high PH/alkaline diet.  Most experts agree that a higher PH diet leads to better health. A testimonial to these benefits is outlines in Tom Brady's new book, The TB12 Method; How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance. In the diet section of this book he goes into extensive benefits of an alkaline diet and how it has helped him carry an amazingly successful sports career into his forties, recently becoming the first 40 year old quarterback to start in a Super Bowl....

Chemicals in Lip Balms

    Looking at the ingredient list above can really make a person wonder how most of these compounds are allowed to be put in a topical product.  This is a photo of the back of Dunkin Donuts' pumpkin spice lip balm.  It actually contains titanium along with many strangely named synthetic chemicals including Red 6, Red 7 and Red 27.  The thought of applying this to the skin seems absurd but most people making impulse counter purchases do not take time to read the back of the item.   Our original/unscented Catskills Gold Lip Balm contains only 3 ingredients; Beeswax from local area bee keepers, Organic Shea Butter sourced...
