Black Sesame Seeds: Anti-Aging Secret

In Chinese Medicine, foods are often used for healing.

One of these foods is black sesame seed (hei zhi ma). The oldest Chinese Materia Medica has this to say about this food:

“Taking black sesame seeds can heal all the chronic illness after 100 days, improve skin tone on body and face after 1 year, reverse gray hair after 2 years, and regrow teeth after 3 years.”

Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

This article highlights some of the specific uses for black sesame. In addition to longevity, it also lists 6 other benefits. I would add to that list that it promotes healthy stools if someone is constipated. It also helps balance blood sugar.

Modern life is full of toxic chemicals.

These toxins show up in your home, your personal care products and the world around you. Herbicides, pesticides, building materials and auto exhaust all increase your toxic load.

Bottom Line
Skim Milk is NOT Healthy

There are many reasons not to drink low fat or nonfat milk.

To understand these reasons, you need to think about why people drink it in the first place. Typical reasons include fear of weight gain and heart disease. But are these fears justified? Probably not.

Dr. Mario Kratz and his team did the research. They looked at dozens of studies of the effects of dairy fat on health.

What did they find?

Some of it was murky, but in general the research showed some surprising results. For example, higher fat dairy foods are associated with less weight gain, not more. In fact, the studies showed higher fat protected against weight gain.

Other studies showed full fat dairy protecting against diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

This article may change how you look at low-fat dairy. You can find more info here.

Roundup Found in Most GMO Foods

Roundup residue is found in most processed food in the Western diet.

Why is this a concern? There are a number of reasons.

First, it usually goes into the cells of the food. That means you can’t wash it off. And food producers can’t wash it off either.

Second, more and more glyphosate (active ingredient in Roundup) is being used. That’s because the GMO seeds withstand it. And as natural weeds become resistant, more needs to be used. That means more in the food supply.

Third, Roundup is far more toxic than you’ve been led to believe. There is evidence it can lead to miscarriages and abnormal fetal development. It also interferes with hormone production.

In fact, there are many problems with this herbicide. To see the full list, click here.

The spice? Cinnamon.

Research shows it can be as effective as standard medicine used to lower blood sugar.

Will just any cinnamon work? Yes, but there is a specific type that is more easily tolerated. Al Sears tells you what it is and how to use it.
