Most animals can make their own vitamin C. We humans can’t. We’ve got to get it through the food we eat or supplementation. And it may be able to help with a variety of health conditions – far more than just the common cold, too. For instance, a study published last fall in BMC Cardiovascular […]

We’ve talked before about the importance of regular detox. Sure, your body is fully capable of removing toxins on its own, but most of us are routinely bombarded with so many different pollutants in such great quantities, the body can get overburdened.

The four basics of health we mentioned last week are just that – basics. They’re important, but they focus exclusively on the physical.

According to one comprehensive Nielsen survey, almost everyone – 89% – says that the best way to stay healthy is to take personal responsibility for your health.
