A New Year and New Healthy Eating Habits

A New Year and New Healthy Eating Habits
As the holiday season draws to a close, many of us start to think about how to eat more healthfully in the New Year and perhaps try and lose those few extra pounds that might have crept up on us over the holidays. If healthy eating and cooking are on your list of New Year’s Resolutions, the NakedTruthNutritionist and EdibleNature are here to help you at every turn. Whether you’re looking for organic bulk .

Antiaging Eye Care: Vision Problems

Antiaging Eye Care: Vision Problems
Deterioration of vision is an inevitable part of aging– in that way, it is much like getting gray hair. We can protect our eyes to some extent by wearing sunglasses to block ultraviolet rays, avoiding smoking, and getting frequent exercise to keep blood vessels in the eyes in good working order. Certain nutrients can, it seems, slow deterioration and the progression of certain diseases. Vitamins C and E, or taking supplements of those vitamins and beta-carotene .

Antiaging Eye Care: Crinkled Eyelids

Antiaging Eye Care: Crinkled Eyelids
Loss of elasticity and fat, plus thinning skin, compound the problem and contribute to small folds in the lids. Eye shadows and cleansers can dry, too. Use a light eye cream in the morning and a rich cream at night; tap the eye area lightly with your finger until the product is absorbed to stimulate circulation. Use a gentle, hydrating makeup remover or cleanser. Mineral eye shadow can also help nourish delicate eyelids.

Energy Support: Eleuthero Ginseng

Formerly called Siberian ginseng, eleuthero ginseng has a long history of use by athletes, military personnel, and cosmonauts of the former Soviet Union due to its energy-enhancing properties. Buy products standardized for eleutheroside content, follow dosage recommendations, and wait six to eight weeks to evaluate the effect.

Anti-Aging Supplements – Detoxification

Protection from toxins begins with minimizing your exposure to them — drinking purified water, eating lower on the food chain and pesticide-free food when possible, not ingesting toxic substances, not smoking, and not living near hazardous sites such as toxic-waste dumps. You also can help support the liver, the organ responsible for processing toxins. If you indulged more than you should have over the holidays, consider some herbal teas and supplements that might help .

Anti-Agng Immune Support: Astragalus

Anti-Agng Immune Support: Astragalus
Astragalus has a long history in Chinese medicine, where it’s used to ward off colds and flu. Dr. Weil often recommends it to people who “get whatever’s going around,” to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, to those with immune deficiencies, and to everyone during flu season. Look for standardized extracts in capsules and take them as the label directs.
