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. Responding to visual stimuli makes up a big part of the entirety of our human experience, and to lose that sense would be far more crushing than becoming deaf, for instance. Both would significantly troubling, and perhaps you’d feel differently, but we figure most would take their eyes over their ears if they had to choose.

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.

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.

Is Biotin and Collagen Good for Hair?

Yes Wellness Blog - Is Biotin and Collagen Good for Hair? While it may not work out that way, a thick and lustrous head of healthy hair is desirable for both men and women all through life. Yes, it’s the male sex that tends to encounter challenges more prominently there as they age with androgenic alopecia and the like, but it’s also true that many women become concerned about the overall robustness of their hair growth as they also move out of the physical primes of their lives.

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 - 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.
