Mothers have been forcing cod liver oil on their far-from-receptive children for generations now. While the taste is never going to be agreeable for anyone of any age, we usually come to bear it once we come to understand how fish liver oil is especially good for our health. The DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) omega-3 fatty acids are just what your brain needs to ensure nicely fluid and flexible neural network connections and efficient firing of your synapses.

Very few organisms that still roam the earth can claim to have their biological dateline stretching back to prehistoric times. Sharks are one of them. While their evolutionary hardiness likely comes from a whole host of different factors, there is one particular part of certain sharks’ biochemical makeup that seems to go a long way in ensuring their longevity. This substance has since been shown to have extensive disease-prevention capacities, along with being able to reduce the incidence and severity of lesser ailments as well.

Humans are biologically designed to be omnivores, and all of us are in fact beings that obtain our nutrition by eating a wide variety of foods, and digesting both plant and animal matter. The eating of them comes quite naturally, comfortably, and enjoyably for the majority of us, but when it comes to eliminating the waste that these foods become after digestion – we don’t all do so equally naturally or comfortably at all.

Yes Wellness Blog - A Question of Chromes: Supplement Choices for Diabetics

As it is for so many of the systems, processes, and statuses inside our bodies, most of us give no thought at all to our blood sugar levels until they dip too low or surge too high. When they go high and don’t come back into balance, you begin to run the risk of developing diabetes. If you have the need to urinate frequently, have seemingly insatiable thirst, and your hunger is equally irresolvable then you may be diabetic.

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.

Though cultural norms are always shifting (and usually for the better), it’s still much more commonplace for a woman to have long hair than a man. Add the fact that women don’t have to face the prospect of genetic pattern baldness quite like men do and ladies are for the most part free to have long, flowing locks for as long as they like throughout life AND have them be regarded as attractive within the standardized definition.

Yes Wellness Blog - Free Radical Fighter: Vitamin E’s Impressive Antioxidant Capacities

The first 4 vitamins, in alphabetical order from A to D, take up the bulk of the attention and fanfare afforded to the collection of them. Vitamins E and K don’t get near the same level of acclaim, and more people will be asking ‘what is vitamin e good for?’ That’s interesting considering E is in large part the antioxidant equal of Vitamin C, while K is integral to bone health and promoting effective blood coagulation when you give yourself an open wound.

The majority of us will have all 5 of the senses at our disposal, and value each of them considerably. If there’s one of the 5 that most would deem absolutely indispensable,  it would be their sight.

Yes Wellness Blog - Understanding the ‘Morphs, Metabolisms, and Natural Approaches to Weight Loss

Every human being has a unique physiological makeup, and when it comes to your propensity to gain body weight there’s a direct relation to two specific aspects of that – your body type, and your metabolism. Your body type is genetically inherited, of course, and you’ll have it through the entirety of your life. Your metabolic rate, however, is the real variable in the equation here and the way it becomes impeded by factors related to age (not age itself – a very important distinction there) can be significantly problematic dependent on your body type.
