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 .

Cold & Flu Prevention Remedies

Cold & Flu Prevention Remedies
If you tend to catch every winter bug that goes around, consider two supplements: the herb astragalus and a medicinal mushroom supplement that contains maitake, shiitake, turkey tail, or reishi mushrooms. Both remedies, long used in Chinese medicine, have antiviral properties that may ward off colds and flu. Like all “tonic” remedies, they have a cumulative effect and are meant to be taken daily. Ideally it’s best to start taking one or both in .

Safe Travels & Happy Tummy!
As you’re wandering the globe this season, steer clear of food-borne illness by getting your daily fill of garlic (in food or capsule form) and probiotics (through yogurt or acidophilus supplements). Garlic provides antibacterial action, and probiotics build up your gut’s beneficial bugs to counter harmful bacteria. If you do end up with a queasy stomach, taking an activated-charcoal supplement can help absorb the toxins and restore your digestive health.

Summer Travel – Reset Your Clock
If you change time zones you can reset your body clock by taking 1 to 3 milligrams of melatonin — a hormone that regulates your sleep-wake cycle — 30 minutes before bedtime. When you wake up, look at the sun for 10 minutes. This will send a message to the part of the brain that coordinates the body’s rhythms through changes in lighting detected by the eyes.

Replenish Electrolytes
