 What Is a Goji Berry?

The goji berry, also called the wolfberry, is a bright orange-red berry that comes from a shrub that’s native to China. In Asia, goji berries have been eaten for generations in the hope of living longer.

Over time, people have used goji berries to try to treat many common health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, fever, and age-related eye problems. Goji berries are eaten raw, cooked, or dried (like raisins) and are used in herbal teas, juices, wines, and medicines.

What Are the Benefits of Goji Berries?

Goji berries are rich in nutrients.

Some studies using goji berry juice found possible benefits that included a feeling of well being and calmness, better athletic performance and quality of sleep, and weight loss. But those were preliminary studies that need to be repeated before drawing conclusions. All berries are good for you. It’s not clear if goji berries are better than other types of berries, or if goji berry supplements have the same health benefits as the actual berries.

Do Goji Berries Have Side Effects?

Goji berries could interact with some drugs. If you take warfarin (a blood), you may want to avoid goji berries. Goji berries may also interact with diabetes drugs and blood pressure drugs, so talk with your doctor first.

Health benefits of acai berry

Acai berry has very good levels of anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins that have health benefiting and disease preventing properties.

Unlike other berries and fruits, acai has high caloric values and fats. 100 grams of berries provide about 80-250 calories depending up on the preparation and serving methods. In fact, fresh acai berry has been the staple nutritious diet of native Amazonian for centuries.

Acai berry contains many polyphenolic anthocyanin compounds like resveratrol, cyanidin-3-galactoside, ferulic acid, delphinidin, petunidin as well as astringent pro-anthocyanidin tannins like epicatechin, protocatechuic acidand ellagic acid. Scientific studies suggest that these compounds have been claimed to act as anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer functions by virtue of their anti-free radical fighting actions. In addition, tannins found to have anti-infective, anti-inflammatory, and anti-hemorrhagic properties.

Primary research studies suggest that ellagic acid in acai has anti-proliferative properties by virtue of its ability to directly inhibit DNA binding of certain carcinogens (nitrosamine toxins) in the food.

Acai berry is also rich in medium chain fatty acids like oleic acid (omega-9) and linoleic acid (omega-6). These compounds help reduce LDL-cholesterol level and raise good HDL-cholesterol levels in the body and thus help cut down heart disease risk. Additionally, the essential fats in acai help prevent skin dryness by maintaining adequate moisture in the skin.

Acai pulp has good levels of dietary fiber. Adequate fiber in the diet helps clear cholesterol through the stools.

ORAC value (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) of acai berry is thought to be at mid-level range for fruits, higher than that of oranges but less than pomegranate. USDA so far has not validated exact ORAC value for acai.

Acai berries contain a good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, iron, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese is utilized inside the human body as co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase.

Further, they are rich in B-complex vitamins and vitamin-K. Niacin, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) and riboflavin are found in adequate amounts in them. These vitamins are function as cofactors and help body in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.

Acai uses in traditional medicine

Acai berry extraction being used by Amazon natives as a treatment remedy for diarrhea, parasitic infections, hemorrhages, and ulcer treatment.

A kind of decoction obtained from crushed acai seeds has been in use for the treatment of fever.

Decoction obtained from the acai roots has been found useful in the treatment of menstrual pain, liver diseases, malaria in Peruvian culture.

Health Benefits of Acai Berry

 

This little berry’s list of attributes includes a high level of antioxidant activity similar to cranberries, but more than what’s been found in blueberries and strawberries. Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) values measuring the antioxidant power of acai fruit pulp/skin powder reportedly have the highest ORAC value among fruits and vegetables, or 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes.

Acai berries are low in sugar, but contain excellent amounts of iron, calcium, fiber, and vitamin A. They also contain anthocyanin compounds such as resveratrol and cyaniding and ferulic acid, which not only give fruits and vegetables their distinct color, but also team up with flavonoids to defend the body against harmful free radicals. In fact, acai berries contain 10 to 30 times more anthocyanin power than red wine. Beneficial fatty acids such as oleic acid, one of the same oils found in olive oil, is another strong point, and healthy levels of dietary fiber keep the system functioning smoothly.

The properties contained in acai berries may help prevent health problems such as arthritis, inflammation, obesity, erectile dysfunction, neurological diseases, and allergies. Lab studies have shown them to have positive effects on ailments associated with oxidative stress, heart disease, and cancer.

Acai berries should be consumed in moderation, because they still contain sugar, even if in lower levels than other fruits. Remember, fructose may be harmful to your health in excessive amounts.

“PEAK” is an Adaptogen Formula!

 What the heck is an “Adaptogen Formula?”

In an article by Dr. Frank Lipman presented on November 13, Dr. Lipman explained that Adaptogens are actually Nature’s Miracle Anti-Stress and Fatigue Fighters!  Here is the article –

Adaptogens: 
Nature’s Miracle Anti-stress and Fatigue Fighters

Frank Lipman

Stress and fatigue. Judging from the proliferation of coffee and cupcake shops popping up these days, clearly caffeine and sugar are what a lot of folks are using to try to fight back. The problem is, they don’t actually work. Sugar and caffeine do offer a quick lift, but the crash is never far behind – so it’s back to Starbucks to start the cycle again, turning your day into a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. Fortunately, there are healthier ways to get through the day – and one of my favorites is with “adaptogens,” the special herbs that help your body adapt to stress and resist fatigue. Here’s my adaptogens-at-a-glance guide:

Adapta-what?

Adaptogens are a unique group of herbal ingredients used to improve the health of your adrenal system, the system that’s in charge of managing your body’s hormonal response to stress. They help strengthen the body’s response to stress and enhance its ability to cope with anxiety and fight fatigue – slowly and gently, without jolts or crashes. They’re called adaptogens because of their unique ability to “adapt” their function according to your body’s specific needs. Though the effects may initially be subtle and take time to make themselves felt, they’re real and undeniable.

 Acai Berry Attributes

Similar to a cross between a grape and a blueberry, the acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) berry is a small, reddish-purple drupe consisting of a cluster of seeds, with only around 15 percent or so being edible, harvested from tall, slender palm trees found around the Amazon River basin of South America. These berries are also quite perishable, but have significant nutritional attributes when eaten fresh.

Traditional uses for acai fruit has included treatment for diarrhea, parasitic infections, hemorrhages and ulcers. As a food, acai pulp in the tribal Amazon belt is often blended with the starchy root vegetable manioc and eaten as porridge.

The taste is often described as reminiscent of wild berries and chocolate. It’s found in large supermarkets and health food stores throughout the world, usually as a juice or tea rather than fresh, simply because getting them out of the Amazon with the nutrients still intact is a complicated process.

Other uses for the acai berry include natural food coloring, cosmetics, anti-aging skin creams, shampoos and conditioners, and also in food supplements. Expensive acai-based products have been widely hyped as having significant weight loss potential, but on that score, scientifically speaking, the jury’s still out. In fact, the Federal Trade Commission announced in early 2012 that it had asked federal courts to temporarily suspend the activity of websites marketing acai berry weight loss products.

Here is the rest of the article by Dr. Frank Lipman concerning what an “Adaptogen Formula”

Where have they been all my life?

Unlike big pharma drugs, adaptogens weren’t born yesterday. In fact, they’ve been used in Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, to boost energy and resilience in the face of stress. Recently, several studies have found evidence to support what those of us in the sustainable wellness field already knew – that adaptogens offer positive benefits —and are safe for long-term use. (Take that big pharma!)

How do adaptogens work?

Adaptogens work a bit like a thermostat. When the thermostat senses that the room temperature is too high it brings it down; when the temperature is too low it brings it up. Adaptogens can calm you down and boost your energy at the same time without over stimulating. They can normalize body imbalances. By supporting adrenal function, they counteract the adverse effects of stress.  They enable the body’s cells to access more energy; help cells eliminate toxic byproducts of the metabolic process and help the body to utilize oxygen more efficiently. In short, adaptogens are amazing!

 Raspberry Ketones – Improve Liver Health and Aid Weight Loss

By Lily Baines


With the festive period drawing to a close and new year’s resolutions chosen, weight loss becomes a primary goal for a lot of people in the western world, especially during the first few months of the year. Exercise regimes and specialized diets are popular ways to shift those extra pounds, but one thing people often neglect is their liver and the role it can play.

Although the liver is one of the toughest organs in the body, it still needs to be looked after. Moreover, doing so can bring about huge benefits in terms of promoting weight loss. There are many ways to help improve your liver’s overall health and function, including exercise and a healthy diet, but Raspberry Ketone can also play a significant role.

Liver Function
The liver is a vital organ and is, in actual fact, the largest internal organ in the human body. It has a variety of roles, including the removal of toxins and the production of chemicals needed for digestion and as a result, it plays a strong role in our metabolism. Essentially, it is the body’s main fat burning organ and its detoxification process helps us to feel fresh and energized.

Generally, the liver is also seen as one of the most resilient organs in the body. In fact, it is the only organ capable of regeneration and can degenerate down to 29% function and still repair itself if looked after properly. However, while the liver can sustain a large amount of damage, this does not mean it should be neglected.

An unhealthy liver can produce a range of problems and the benefits of a fully healthy and functioning liver can not be overstated. These benefits range from better skin to the ability to fight off serious and life-threatening diseases and illnesses. One additional bonus is a strong metabolism, which is hugely beneficial for any weight loss goals.

Raspberry Ketones?

Raspberry ketones are a natural substance that gives red raspberries their powerful aroma.This substance is also found in small amounts in blackberries, cranberries and kiwis.Actually… most people are already eating small amounts of raspberry ketones, either from the fruits themselves or because of their popularity as a flavorant. Only recently did they became popular as a weight loss supplement.

How Do Raspberry Ketones Work?

Researchers became interested in raspberry ketones because of the molecular structure.They noticed that it looked very similar to two other molecules, capsaicin (found in chili pepper) and synephrine (a stimulant).Several studies have shown that these two molecules can boost metabolism, so it was speculated that raspberry ketones could have the same effect.

When researchers took isolated fat cells from rats and made them grow in a test tube, adding raspberry ketones to the mix had two effects.It increased lipolysis (breakdown of fat), primarily by making the cells more sensitive to the effects of the fat burning hormone norepinephrine.It made the fat cells release more of the hormone adiponectin.

Adiponectin is a hormone that is released by fat cells and is believed to play a role in regulating metabolism and blood sugar levels. Thin people have much higher levels of adiponectin than people who are overweight and the levels of the hormone increase when people lose weight. Studies have shown that people with low adiponectin levels are at a higher risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver and even heart disease. Therefore, it stands to reason that raising adiponectin levels with natural means could help people lose weight and lower the risk of many diseases.
