This appeared to prevent them from being poisoned, so he began to recommend it as an antidote for poison.Probably best known as a workaholic in the kitchen, oregano also has many valuable therapeutic uses. In fact, it may well have first been used for its curative properties before its seasoning properties were discovered. Ancient Egyptians prized oregano for its ability to disinfect wounds and speed up the healing process. It's also believed that they used it in mummification. Throughout the centuries, oregano has been used to sooth coughs, calm digestive disorders, relax tension, and relieve insomnia. As far as kitchen use, it was the Roman gourmet Apicius who loudly proclaimed oregano to be an important part of his culinary creations, leading it to play an important part in Mediterranean cuisine. When GIs returned from overseas after World War II, they demanded to have Mediterranean herb staple in their dishes back home. Their insistence on enjoying this herb is what helped to make it popular in the United States. Today, oregano not only reigns in the kitchen, but also rules in the world of aromatherapy.Mixes well with: Atlas cedar, basil, bergamot, citronella, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, orange, rosemary, tea tree, thyme, and wintergreen.Parts used: Dried, flowering tops.Extraction method: Steam distillation.
Address The Deepest Core Of Health. The 26 feet of the digestive system and colon keep us young, strong and energetic. It is where nutrients are extracted and absorbed from food, lending life and good health to the entire body. Unfortunately, this system is also the most abused. We've been raised on a diet of bread, dairy, cheese, meat, sweets, candy, ice cream, and fast, fried, and fatty foods. Over time these foods contribute to sluggish and inefficient digestion and elimination of toxins and waste from the body. When toxins and wastes accumulate, due to poor digestion and elimination, the window is open for them to be reabsorbed into the blood stream and pollute the tissues and organs of our internal bodies! This process, called "autointoxication", is thought to be the impetus for many problems, including fatigue, gas, bloating, poor skin, brain fog, and low-blood sugar. Fortunately, thanks to nutritional science and the work of clinical herbalists, there is a safe and natural way to cleanse the entire body of toxic build-up and rejuvenate the digestive system.Ultimate Cleanse...

It's how your body wants to live, actually. It's why our PURE nutrition bars are becoming the healthy snack bars of choice for people around the world. Our founder, Veronica Bosgraaf, created the Pure Bar for vegetarians — there are no refined sugars or preservatives. Our nutrition bars are also raw, meaning they are cold-processed to protect the quality of vital antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. (In other words, our PURE bar kinda does grow on trees!). Pure Bar is also certified gluten-free and we're an active partner with the Celiac Disease Foundation. Organic Pure bar is unique among bars (and most other packaged food) in that it is made with raw and organic ingredients. Raw food is defined as; fruit, vegetables, nuts, and seeds that are in their natural state. This means they are never cooked, processed, or altered in any way. When you include raw foods in your diet, it is important to choose organic, raw foods. Organic fruits, seeds, nuts, and vegetables are grown without the use of synthetic herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers that can be toxic to the body. Most non-organic produce is grown using these harsh chemicals. Choosing organic produce also helps the environment by supporting chemical free farming. Organic farms use no harmful sprays or chemicals in growing their produce. This produces healthier product and doesn't contaminate the soil. Organic, raw food is the most pure, untainted, and healthiest food for our body. Raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds are easily digested and contain the perfect balance of vitamins, minerals, protein, sugar, and fiber to fulfill our nutritional needs. Research confirms that eating a variety of raw foods in your diet may help reduce certain kinds of cancers as well as promote cardiovascular health. Organic, raw food is amazingly flavorful. People are surprised that the Organic Pure bar is delicious and flavorful without the addition of sugar, syrups, oils, fats, or anything artificial. The huge variety of textures and flavors in raw food are endless and incredibly satisfying. Eating a variety of raw food in your diet, may help your body feel more satisfied with less food, and because the nutrients in raw foods are so perfectly balanced, there is no need to overeat. Raw food living & lifestyles (eating at least 75% raw foods) have been known to increase metabolism, mental awareness and energy levels in those who participate. Cooking food destroys over half of the valuable enzymes in food. Enzymes are the catalyst for every cellular reaction that occurs in our body. Enzymes help vitamins and minerals get broken down and used in the body. Destroying the enzymes in food makes it much less nutritious and much harder to digest. Almost all of the packaged food in stores is cooked and contains unhealthy amounts of added sugars, corn syrups, fats, oils, artificial flavors and artificial colors. These foods are unnatural to eat. They lack the nutrients that our bodies need and are hard for our system to digest. Many bars that claim to be healthy (granola bars and fruit bars) fall into the above category of processed, cooked food with unhealthy additives. These ingredients can be harmful to the body, and because they don't provide the nutrients our bodies need, they don't satisfy us and can contribute to overeating. Organic, raw food is a healthy addition to our diet. Choosing foods like Organic Pure bar and other organic raw foods not only help the planet by promoting chemical free farming, but it helps the body immensely by providing the highest quality nutrition possible.

A review of the scientific literature strongly suggests that healthy life span may be greatly extended if we reduce the calorie burden our body is exposed to each day.While eating even a little less is helpful, most of us can benefit enormously if we consume supplements before meals that impede calorie absorption and favorably influence internal regulators of fat storage.For instance, carbohydrates consumed without calorie inhibitors quickly pass from the stomach into the small intestine where they rapidly absorb into the blood. This causes a surge in blood glucose and insulin that adversely impacts our health. When gastric emptying into the small intestine is delayed (by certain calorie inhibitors), the rise in glucose-insulin is more gradual and carries fewer risks.Inhibiting the amylase digestive enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates also blunts the effects of excess calorie intake — while augmenting programs designed to shed fat pounds. When a meal is ingested, bile acids and the lipase enzyme are released into the digestive tract where they facilitate the break-down and absorption of ingested fats. Compounds that bind to bile acids and/or neutralize lipase can impede the absorption of triglyceride-rich dietary fats. Some of these compounds also inhibit absorption through the intestinal wall by forming a viscous barrier around ingested foods.Few people are aware of how many deadly excess calories they consume each day. Their bloodstreams are chronically bloated with glucose, insulin, and triglycerides long after a meal is eaten. This occurs not only because they absorbed too many calories, but because their internal regulators of fat storage are impaired as a consequence of aging. These individuals don't understand why they keep gaining weight even as they try to cut down on calorie intake and exercise more.In response to mounting evidence that age-associated fat accumulation results from the loss of metabolic capacity to utilize ingested calories, a powdered drink mix has been designed with the following ingredients:LuraLean® (propolmannan) — This proprietary fiber has been developed to swell in the stomach after ingestion with water to help reduce calorie consumption. Propolmannan binds to bile acids in the small intestine and helps transport them out of the body. These bile acids otherwise facilitate the digestion and assimilation of dietary fat into the bloodstream. LuraLean® propolmannan also slows the rapid emptying of ingested food into the small intestine, thereby reducing the surge of glucose entering the bloodstream.The reason LuraLean® works better than other fibers is that its own enzymes have been removed, thus sparing it from degradation in the digestive tract. This enables LuraLean® to form a stable viscous barrier to help impede calorie absorption and maintain its sponge-like activity throughout the digestive tract. In placebo-controlled studies, LuraLean® (propolmannan) has induced moderate weight loss along with significant reductions in fasting lipid and post-meal glucose and insulin levels.White kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) — The amylase digestive enzyme breaks down carbohydrates that are then absorbed into the bloodstream as glucose. Phaseolus vulgaris inhibits amylase and has produced significant weight loss and abdominal fat reductions.Irvingia gabonensis — Like white kidney bean, Irvingia has amylase-inhibiting properties. It also favorably regulates: leptin to decrease appetite and facilitate triglyceride removal from adipocytes; adiponectin to facilitate insulin sensitivity and glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase to inhibit glucose from converting to triglyceride fat in adipocytes. Irvingia has demonstrated favorable weight loss results in placebo-controlled trials.Green tea phytosome — Aging results in a slowdown of resting energy expenditure. This means more calories we eat convert to stored body fat instead of being utilized for energy production. This proprietary green tea phytosome has been shown to absorb much better into the bloodstream than conventional green tea and induce 30.1 pounds of weight loss on average in 90 days when combined with a reduced calorie diet. Green tea polyphenols boost resting metabolic rate and help impede the lipase enzyme used to facilitate dietary fat breakdown.Importance of taking Calorie Control Weight Management Formula before heavy mealsAmericans live in a state of denial as it relates to the effects of excess calorie ingestion. As a result, most have not yet accepted that they need to inhibit the absorption and effects of excess calories before the two heaviest meals of the day. Excess calories kill us in four different ways:Even when we try to eat healthy, it is impossible to avoid mutagens that damage genes needed for healthy cell division. By reducing the total number of food particles that make it into our bloodstream, we reduce our overall systemic exposure to mutagens.Excess calories cause our bloodstream to be consistently loaded with triglycerides, glucose, and insulin. This creates oxidative and inflammatory reactions that can preclude us from maintaining healthy vascular (endothelial) function and glycemic control.Excess calories contribute to increased body fat storage, which can lead to systemic inflammation by means of pro-inflammatory factors produced by engorged fat cells.Genes that control how long we will live are influenced by blood glucose levels. By reducing the amount of glucose that surges into our bloodstream, we can more favorably control many of our longevity genes.Once we accept the danger that each surplus calorie poses to our aging body, it becomes easy to understand the need to impede the absorption and effects of ingested foods by taking the Calorie Control Weight Management formula before the two heaviest meals of the day.The new Calorie Control Weight Management Formula contains a double-dose of propolmannan (LuraLean®) used in the pilot trial of treatment-resistant individuals who shed almost 12 pounds on average after eight weeks.

Digestive teas are believed to be absorbed much faster than their capsule counter parts, since the water steeped with tea is much easily absorbed by the body, as compared to capsules that need to be broken down before absorption. Digestive teas are very easy to make and post minimal risks to the person drinking it.
You must make sure that you prepare digestive teas the right way, so that you are able to get the most out of the herbs and substances infused in the tea bags (or tea leaves). Use water that is just off the boiling point (boiled water then let it rest for 3 minutes or so) and then pour it into the cup with the tea bag or the tea leaves already inside. Steep for 10 to 15 minutes, to give a lot of time for the tea leaves to rehydrate while in water.
Teas in general help your digestive system by breaking down the newly digested food. Properly digested food makes your body absorb much of its nutrients, add to the fact that they won’t be stored in your body in the event of indigestion.
The most popular type of digestive tea is ginger tea, closely followed by green tea. Most digestive teas are not solely made from the tea plant. Other fruits and leaves are also used. Aside from the expected calming effect of teas, they also help you slim down by suppressing your hunger. You can also try peppermint tea, chamomile, Senna and lemon balm tea.
