Ellen G. White and Intermittent Fasting

Written by: DeWitt S. Williams
.
Intermittent fasting has been the topic of many recent books and has been studied in animals and in humans. Basically, intermittent fasting is a broad term that focuses on when a person eats not the number of calories or types of food. It always includes a period of voluntary abstinence from food and its proponents approach the subject in different ways. The most popular approach is the 16/8 which requires fasting for 16 hours and an eight hour time slot when you can eat anything at any time. Another version, alternate day fasting, alternates 24 hour periods of fasting with days of eating freely. The 5:2 approach limits fasting to just two days a week, while the Warrior Diet follows a 20-hour fast with one large meal consumed at night. In all of these programs the stomach gets a period of regular rest during fasting.

Rooibos Tea Health benefits

Rooibos Tea and Health: A Systematic Review of the Evidence from the Last Two Decades:

“Rooibos tea, also known as Red Bush, is derived from the South African Cape fynbos plant, Aspalathus linearis, and is caffeine-free and abundant in polyphenols.

Evidence related to the health aspects of drinking Rooibos tea is advancing but does not appear to have been collated. Therefore, we aimed to examine the health effects of Rooibos tea through a systematic review of the literature.

A search was undertaken (2000 up to June 2020) for human and laboratory studies investigating the efficacy of Rooibos in relation to health. Seven human studies and 49 laboratory studies were identified.

Overall Rooibos tea consumption seems to benefit the lipid and redox profiles of those at risk of cardiovascular disease. It also appears to possess other promising ‘general’ effects on glycaemic control, bone, liver, cognitive and respiratory health.”

Postbiotics

Postbiotics are byproducts of natural probiotic (good) bacteria fermentation. Postbiotics help growth and survival of good bacteria in the gut, help reduce inflammation, mimic effects of probiotics, kill pathogens, regulate hormone and insulin levels, and boost immunity. They are regarded as a good addition to probiotic supplements. Read more

Does Vitamin C Survive Boiling?

 

Does vitamin C survive boiling?

Yes, it mostly does survive heating. It seems that at 70°C vitamin C is denatured so it should be preserved (heated) below 70°C to reduce the heat damage to a minimum.

I like especially the black current jam and buy it sweetened with sorbitol (erythritol or xylitol are good sweeteners too but not sugar or artificial sweeteners). Read more

Should I Take Probiotics on an Empty Stomach, Between Meals or With Meals?

Because there is a lot of confusion concerning this subject and even many practitioners still recommend taking probiotics on an empty stomach, let’s try to find out what is the best time of the day to ingest them.

Since we know that the more acidic the stomach is the more harmful it can be for the probiotic bacteria, the answer to the above question is very simple – we should take probiotics when the stomach is less acidic. Read more

Three Phases of Liver Detox

PHASE 1

Phase 1 of the liver detox is activated by various external toxins (heavy metals, alcohol, caffeine, dioxin, drugs, pesticides, etc.). Phase 1 is the first line of defence against toxins and it uses various enzymes that protect cells from damage by converting toxins into smaller and less harmful substances destined for further detox and by making toxins water-soluble in order to enter Phase 2.

The following herbs, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and healthy plant foods can make this process much more efficient: Silymarin in Milk thistle, Dandelion, Artichoke, B Vitamins, Lipotropics (compounds that break down fat in metabolism: L-cysteine, L-methionine, Choline, and Inositol), Vitamin C, A (including Beta-carotene – provitamin A), and E, Curcumin (from Turmeric), Cruciferous veggies (Brassica family): Magnesium, Iron, Selenium, Copper, Zinc, Manganese, Resveratrol, Coq10, etc. Read more
