Yes Wellness Blog - Discussing Dietary Plant-Based Sources of Vitamin D for Vegans

Choosing to adhere to a vegan diet is now widely accepted as coming with extensive health benefits, along with being an environmentally responsible choice given the staggeringly harmful effects of large scale livestock agriculture in the world today. Even if it’s not for you, we’d all do well to understand that you can get nearly all of the same necessary nutritional value from a vegan diet that you’d get from a standard one.

Yes Wellness Blog - The Bio Tune Up: Natural Ways to Increase Metabolism for Weight Loss

There’s that age old expression, ‘time waits for no man.’ Not only is it especially true, but it really might be more appropriately phrased as ‘time waits for no one’ as the inevitability of the passing of time applies equally to either gender. When it comes to your physiology, you’ll hear people lament about the ‘ravages’ of time as we all see ourselves drifting further and further away from the prime of our youth.

Yes Wellness Blog - Saying No to the ‘Sugar Blues’: The Superiority of Stevia

An ‘eye opener’ is any piece of information that meets 3 specific criteria; A) it’s new to you, B) its proven to be factual, and C) it leads you to have a new and typically opposite understanding related to some aspect of the subject matter. In 1975, American researcher and writer William Dufty’s book ‘Sugar Blues’ was published. It was considered to be an eye opener as it detailed the very nefarious nature of the refined white sugar industry and how white sugar is a supremely addictive and harmful substance that humans should ideally NEVER ingest.

Yes Wellness Blog - Apple Cider Vinegar: Fabulously Fermented, Superstar Solution

Many people will associate vinegar as that perfect taste bud turner for adding to their French fries. That’s but only one of the many types of vinegars, all of which are produced by a fermentation process where ethanol is broken down by acetic acid bacteria. White, or malt, vinegar as that type is referred to, is very generic in its applications, which range from flavouring all the way to cleaning and adhesive removal. Turns out that acetic acid stuff is quite something!

Yes Wellness Blog - Tip-Top Tummy: Far-Reaching Benefits of Optimal Digestion

Eating is one of life’s most enjoyable pleasures for a human being, both for the nourishment and sensory experiences of it. By the time we reach adulthood most of us have very developed tastes and preferences for certain types of foods, but that also typically comes with some unhealthy eating habits. Some of them you can be dealt with in the interest of continuing to enjoy certain foods (and ingredients within them) in moderation, but ingesting certain foods and ingredients may inhibit the digestive functioning of your stomach and intestines.

Yes Wellness Blog - Fabulous Fungi: Embracing Mushrooms as Nutraceuticals Round here, most of us have our first introduction to mushrooms while discovering meadow mushrooms or eastern flat-topped agaricus growing in the backyard of our childhood homes. They’re definitely visually intriguing as they stand there conspicuously in a sea of green grass, and it’s quite natural to pick one or more of them and take them inside to show Mom and Dad what you’ve found in the backyard.

You may or not be a believer in the green superfoods mania that’s taken hold across North America, but there’s no debating this fact; humans have evolved to be omnivores, and our lack of incisor teeth (among other indicators) is evolutionary proof that we are more designed to be herbivores and frugivores than carnivores within the omnivorous spectrum.

Yes Wellness Blog - Adsorbing – Not Absorbing: Why Activated Charcoal is Big These Days You’d pretty much need to have been living under a rock to not have heard of activated charcoal these days. That might be easy to say coming from a health and wellness aficionado, but in truth it’s been fairly prominent in the media and across a whole host of subject matters online too. Many people will have seen it promoted as a natural way to whiten your teeth – and yes, it’s great for that – but there’s a whole host of other ‘cleaning’ applications for it too, and many of them are much more beneficial in the big picture of overall body health.

Yes Wellness Blog - The Best Red: Eating to Nourish Your Blood Your body is comprised of a collection of individual parts and components that all work together in collective unison very impressively. It’s quite fair to say, however, that none of them are as integral to the others overall quite like the blood. That’s because it’s always on the move, being pumped out and circulated by your heart to deliver all the sustenance the organs, muscles, sinews and even bones need to be at their best.

Yes Wellness Blog - Breakfast of Champions, the Delicious Variety

It’s commonly understood that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And that’s not just based on popularity of opinion, as there’s easy-to-understand logic in coming to that conclusion. There is the longest duration of time between the previous day’s dinner and breakfast the next.
