The basic working unit of your brain is a neuron. It can also be called a nerve cell. It gets electrically excited to transmit information to a wide variety of cells through synapses. When this is humming, your brain is said to have a high state of neuroplasticity and you have no brain fog or brain diseases in your future. So you might think that the real deal of protecting your brain is protecting your neurons. But that’s not the case. The real protectors of your brain are glia cells that protect your neurons by feeding them proper substances. It always [...]

We all feel better when we look better, but how do we achieve gorgeous skin? Time outside is precious, but can be damaging to skin health and appearance. Learn about the two isomers (types) of metabolite equol that protect your skin along with an inexpensive nutritional secret that acts like a healthy daily microbrasion.
Today, many are living longer, but doing it with more disease and disability. At the same time, there are proven technologies to slow down the Mack Truck of Time and have a better, longer life. Learn about modern technologies to help you live younger, longer.
The older you get the harder it naturally becomes to put the world around us in order. But the human brain adapts. At the end of this article you'll find 6 steps to help your brain adapt even better. In order to process the massive amount of information you receive daily—and every day this amount is growing by leaps and bounds—your brain builds file cabinets. Brains categorize into physiologic files. This understanding comes from neuroscientists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. They looked at the way brains categorize factoids into “cranial files” and how this capacity varies throughout phases of a lifetime. Younger [...]
In Hollywood, the face you are born with is only the face you start with. In functional medicine, the body or disease you are born with, is only a starting point, too. Why? The body is designed to heal. Our genes are graciously and responsively designed by Mother Nature to “morph” based on our life “choices.” How we move through our days on this planet in our body and emotional suits has a robust part in our continuing evolution. Nature created us as co-creators. Vitamin F - Fun But it is not just our 3 E’s: eating, exercising and earning rupees [...]

Today, even younger men and women in their 20’s and 30’s, can be velcroed to their chairs, computers and work stations. New amazing study! 3,000 people (50 to 79-years old) had activity trackers put on them (called “accelerometers” – sounds Star [...]
