Yes Wellness Blog - Crustacean Comes First: Why Krill Oil is Better than Fish Oil as an Omega-3 Source

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.

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.

Most people have a favourite colour, or at least one that’s more visually agreeable to their eye as compared to others. It’s suggested that people who would choose black, for instance, are supposed to be more artistic and sensitive, while choosing white is for those who are especially organized and logical.

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.

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 - 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.

Yes Wellness Blog - Standing Tall: Maintaining Bone Strength As You Age You’re likely all aware of the process of human evolution, and in particular how we’ve evolved over thousands of years from scooting along on all fours to walking upright the way we do today.
