Beto supporters can’t name a single accomplishment, but they irrationally support Beto anyway, because it’s “popular” to do so

( Natural News ) Before he decided to run against Sen. Ted Cruz, few people outside of Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s Texas congressional district knew who he was. After he filed, the dishonest “establishment” media and Hollywood elite did all they could throughout the summer to pretend he had even a snowball’s chance in Hades to unseat Cruz and turn half of Texas’ senatorial delegation blue. They talked about his “charisma,” his “appeal” to Left-wing voters, his heritage, his youthfulness, all while pouring millions of dollars into his campaign. What no one ever talked about, however, was his accomplishments, which would help explain why even his young supporters can’t name any of them. Campus Reform sent a correspondent , Cabot Phillips, to Texas A & M University to ask students if the election were held “today,” who they would vote for. While most said they would pull the lever for O’Rourke, they also could not point to any of his specific accomplishments as a U.S. representative. All they see is a “D” behind his name. Cruz is currently leading – by a good margin – in most surveys, but as Phillips noted, “O’Rourke has a decided lead amongst Millennials and college students” (thanks mostly to being brainwashed into unquestionably supporting the party of the Donkey). The sited noted: Supporters of Sen. Cruz have claimed that though O’Rourke possesses plenty of smooth rhetoric, he lacks in substance and qualifications. Wanting to see if O’Rourke’s supporters could detail accomplishments of the Texas Congressman, Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips headed to Texas A&M to ask his supporters a simple question: Can you name an accomplishment of his? Without a doubt, the answer was overwhelmingly no. “Umm, I’m not aware of any specific accomplishments,” said one student. This is why not everyone should vote […]

Here’s an easy way to improve gut health: Eat more cherries

( Natural News ) Adding more tart cherries to your diet is an effective way to improve gut health , according to a study published in The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry . In the study, researchers examined the effect of tart cherry concentrate on gut bacteria using both laboratory testing and clinical trials. Earlier research has shown that polyphenols have a prebiotic effect, and tart cherries have a unique composition of polyphenols, particularly chlorogenic acid. For the petri dish trial, the researchers used concentrated juices of Montmorency tart cherries , commercially available concentrates, and apricot cultivars — all of which did not contain dietary fibers. These were then submitted to bacterial fermentation tests. To evaluate how the fruits affected the gut microbiota, these samples went through DNA extraction and sequencing. The clinical trial, on the other hand, involved nine healthy participants who did not consume an antibiotic at least 12 weeks before it started. In the trial, the participants drank eight ounces of Montmorency tart cherry juice daily for five days. They also answered a food frequency questionnaire and underwent stool tests before and after the tart cherry treatment. The laboratory tests revealed that all tart and sweet cherry products improved gut health. The fermentation of sugars and carbohydrates served as the primary energy sources of good gut bacteria. Meanwhile, the results of the clinical trial demonstrated that the consumption of tart cherry juice improved gut health as shown by the increase of good gut bacteria. 100% organic essential oil sets now available for your home and personal care, including Rosemary, Oregano, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Clary Sage and more, all 100% organic and laboratory tested for safety.

The natural supplements you should be taking to boost mental performance

The natural supplements you should be taking to boost mental performance

( Natural News ) Yes, it’s possible to boost your mental performance with the right supplements . What’s even better news is that these supplements are all-natural and have far-reaching benefits besides helping your brain function better. Cognitive enhancers are among the most popular types of drug today, especially among scientists, students, entrepreneurs, and other individuals whose activities are more focused on brainpower. Cognitive enhancers, referred to interchangeably – but often mistakenly – as nootropics, are substances formulated to enhance one or several aspects of cognitive function, such as memory, motivation, or creativity. Brain supplements are different in that they don’t provide an immediate boost to your thinking ability or memory. They do contain plenty of brain-friendly nutrients and by keeping the central nervous system healthy, they tend to offer the same benefits as cognitive enhancers, albeit in the long run. Needless to say, there are drugs and substances that have the traits of both cognitive enhancers and brain supplements. You could say they are the closest to the actual, technical definition of “nootropics,” that is, drugs that enhance brainpower but without any adverse effect. The term may also pertain to substances that protect the brain. As it turns out, such cognitive enhancement supplements exist in nature. Here are four examples: Ginkgo biloba There’s a good chance you’ve heard of this plant before. Ginkgo, as it is more popularly known, is often bought for its ability to improve memory, as well as its benefits for sufferers of depression, anxiety, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Do Memory Supplements Work? 10 Supplements to Boost Brain Power

You know that moment when you take that first sip of coffee, and the caffeine begins to pulse through your body and awaken a clearer mind, sparking you into more efficient state of productivity? Our ability to remember information and produce high quality work efficiently is heightened when we consume caffeine. Even non-coffee drinkers are well aware of the effects. In this article, we’ll look into what memory supplements are and how you can use such supplements to boost your brain power. Caffeine vs Memory Supplements So what role does caffeine have when we consider what memory supplements are? Well, coffee is actually considered a nootropic .

In our busy lives that demand so much from us in our professional and personal responsibilities, the familiar feeling of brain fog many of us suffer from can really hinder our ability to move through all facets of life with ease and efficiency. For productivity seekers and life hack enthusiasts, nootropics are definitely a new wave of supplements that are becoming more sought after and widely used, because of their brain boosting benefits. This term was coined by Romanian psychologist Dr. Corneliu E. Giurgea in the 1960s, who came up with certain characteristics of what a pure nootropic is defined as: Cognitive function enhancement (focus, memory, learning) Improved reactions in thought and cognition when under stress Protects decline of brain cells Chemical protection against brain injury More efficient neural pathway communication Research driven proof Minimal or no side effects with low-to-no toxicity Although not every nootropic on the market will contain all of […]

How to Maximize Your Health On a Keto Diet – 8 Nutrients to Monitor

How to Maximize Your Health On a Keto Diet – 8 Nutrients to Monitor

The ketogenic diet, or keto diet, has become one of the most popular diets in recent years for its ability to enhance fat loss, increase energy, improve athletic performance, and control appetite. But despite these benefits, research and decades of clinical experience have found the diet to increase the risk for multiple nutrient deficiencies. Read on to see what nutrients you should be watching to maximize your health on a ketogenic diet. The ketogenic diet is more popular than ever. The diet is extremely low in carbohydrates (usually less than 50 g/day), moderate in protein, and very high in fat. “Ketogenic” refers to the ability of the diet to generate high levels of compounds called ketones that are used as the main energy source instead of glucose . The term was first coined by Dr. Russ Wilder of the Mayo Clinic in 1921, who used the diet to successfully treat epileptic children. However, with the introduction of effective anticonvulsant drugs, the ketogenic, or keto, diet fell out of favor with doctors. It was and still is used to successfully treat epileptic patients who don’t respond to drugs or surgery [ R , R ]. The diet has seen a resurgence in popularity in recent decades. Reported benefits range from weight loss and improved blood sugar control to increased energy and mental clarity. Research has backed some of these claims: the keto diet is more effective for weight loss, reducing blood sugar levels, and improving cholesterol and triglycerides than high-protein, calorie-restricted, and even low-fat diets (one RCT of 25 participants, one randomized crossover trial of 17 participants, three RTs of 159 participants) [ R , R , R , R , R ]. Beyond weight loss, the diet’s therapeutic potential has also been studied in type 2 diabetes , heart […]

Experts dispel 5 myths and reveal benefits of low-carb, high-fat diets made famous by celebrities

( Natural News ) The keto diet has recently gained a lot of attention because many celebrities follow it, making it one of the more popular weight-loss diets today. The eating plan was designed to put the body into a maximum fat-burning state because it is low in carbohydrates and was originally designed as a means to treat epilepsy in children. However, there is a lot of confusion on how to use the diet for losing weight. In an article published on Daily Mail Online, experts debunked the five common myths about the keto diet . These include: Ketosis and ketoacidosis are similar – Ketosis should not be confused with ketoacidosis, according to Jim White, owner of Jim White Fitness and Nutrition Studios. Keto diet, short for ketogenic diet, is any diet that is high in fat but low in carbohydrates that stimulates ketosis . Ketosis is the process in which the body burns fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. This in turn leads to compounds called ketones to circulate in the blood and act as substitutes for carbohydrates. On the other hand, ketoacidosis occurs when the blood is extremely acidic, which is potentially fatal. In addition, it is usually observed in people with diabetes. Those who are following a ketogenic diet can experience ketoacidosis because extreme levels of ketones also cause the condition, based on a study review. Ketoacidosis can result to abdominal pain, weakness, thirst, shortness of breath, confusion, and blurred vision. The keto diet is high in protein – Kelly Roehl, a researcher and dietitian at Rush University , said the myth that the keto diet is a high-protein diet is the biggest and most dangerous myth. Moreover, she said that people on a keto diet must lessen their protein intake. This is because when the […]

Rowing is the new spin and start ‘fat fasting’… 8 health and wellness trends for weight loss in 2019

FITNESS, like fashion, changes with each new year. This year we’ve moved away from HIIT training and hardcore dieting towards less stressful but more permanent lifestyles – from intermittent fasting and keto dieting to infrared saunas and crosstraining. Getty – Contributor 2018 has seen us moving away from stressful workouts to focus more on relaxation and sustainable change And lots of that is set to continue into next 2019. But if you really want to get ahead of the curve, then these are just some of the fitness trends we’re going to see everywhere in 2019, according to Healthista : 1. Fat fasting for weight loss Intermittent fasting has become huge over the past year (some people have been doing it for years but many of us are recent converts). Getty – Contributor Adding saturated fat to your coffee during your fasting window might keep hunger at bay 16:8 is probably the most popular type of IF, with people eating during a fixed eight hour period and fasting for 16. That typically means skipping breakfast – having your first meal around lunchtime and your last bite to eat around 8pm. The only problem is keeping hunger at bay (although that does subside after a few days). And that’s where the 2019 version of IF differs. Regular intermittent fasting recommends having nothing but black coffee, tea and water in the fasting periods – but this one believes that bulletproof coffee – coffee with added butter – is the answer. According to stunt actress-turned-naturopath Annelie Whitfield, saturated fats satiate hunger without spiking blood sugar. Alamy Mmm, a cup of coffee with a side plate of fat So she’s all for adding butter or coconut butter into your drinks, so long as you’re not having sugar or carbs. "Remember, don’t be scared […]

Stronger than coffee and as beneficial as tea, here’s why you should be drinking yerba mate

Stronger than coffee and as beneficial as tea, here’s why you should be drinking yerba mate

( Natural News ) Coffee has become a part of many people’s lives. However, coffee isn’t the safest source of an energy boost. If it’s a healthy energizing drink that you want, then yerba mate is the answer. Previous studies have shown that too much coffee can cause side effects , such as addiction, heart palpitations, and panic attacks, since it has a lot of caffeine. Although yerba mate also has caffeine, it is considerably less than coffee’s. Moreover, even with its lower caffeine levels, yerba mate can provide the same energy boost as coffee. Yerba mate is made from dried leaves of the yerba mate ( Ilex paraguariensis ) plant, which is native to South America. In countries like Argentina and Uruguay, it is very common to drink this. However, it’s only in recent years that yerba mate has gained attention in the west because of its many benefits, which are listed below: Boosts energy – As previously mentioned, yerba mate provides an energy boost similar to that of coffee but without the side effects. Because of this, it’s extremely useful for people suffering from fatigue. Enhances mental function – Aside from caffeine, which is known to enhance brain function, yerba mate also contains theobromine and theophylline. These compounds act as brain stimulants that can enhance memory, mood, and alertness. Yerba mate has also been shown to stimulate dopamine production, which enhances mood and productivity. Provides nutrients – Yerba mate contains various vitamins and minerals that are needed by the body. In addition to this, yerba mate has bioactive compounds that exhibit antioxidant properties. Regulates the immune system – This property of yerba mate can be attributed to the presence of saponins and polyphenols. These compounds prevent the immune system from overreacting to both foreign and innate substances. […]

Take control of your anxiety with these proven natural remedies

Take control of your anxiety with these proven natural remedies

( Natural News ) Many people experience anxiety when faced with stressful things, like a new job or a different environment. However, some people might have anxiety that’s too severe that it interrupts their daily lives. To relieve anxiety, there are many safe and effective natural remedies that can be used. Anxiety is normal but when the intensity isn’t proportional to the cause or when it lasts for long periods of time, that is when it becomes a problem. People with severe anxiety tend to rely on prescription drugs to get the relief that they are looking for. However, anxiety medications tend to cause unwanted side effects like nausea, headache, sleep disorders, fatigue, and addiction. In addition to this, prescription drugs can also be pricey so not everyone who needs them will be able to afford them. Fortunately, there are many natural remedies that are safe and effective. These include the following: Arctic root – This herb is commonly used both in Scandinavian and Chinese traditional medicine. It works as an adaptogen that promotes the production of neurotransmitters, like serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. The increase in these hormones can relieve symptoms of anxiety, such as brain fog, low energy, poor concentration, and depression. Ashwagandha – With a name that translates to “smell of the horse,” potential users should be wary of its strong smell. However, don’t let the smell of this herb be a turn off since its benefits will surely make up for it. When consumed, this herb can significantly reduce cortisol levels by 25 percent leading to a calmer state of mind. Additionally, ashwagandha is also said to increase stamina and strength. Bacopa – Bacopa is a part of Ayurvedic medicine. Although it doesn’t work as fast as the other remedies, months of taking bacopa can lead […]
