What’s the Healthiest Way to Have Your Coffee?

W

The effects of caffeine on our health for better or worse is a topic that is hotly debated and somewhat controversial. While many people still swear on their morning coffee to get them going, some are now saying that caffeine is only good for combating a caffeine withdrawal and that we’d actually be more alert and creative without it (1). But putting the effects of caffeine on our brain to...

Bulletproof Coffee Review – For Weight Loss and Concentration

B

Putting butter in coffee appears to be the latest craze across the web and there are a huge number of fans who enthusiastically promote its benefits and recommend it to anyone who will listen. It sounds pretty rich, but does it really have the health benefits that it’s purported to have? And where precisely did this strange idea come from? What Is Bulletproof Coffee? The idea of putting...

Kombucha Health Benefits

K

In China, kombucha tea is sometimes known as ‘the immortal health elixir’ which might lead one to the conclusion that it’s good for us; and while it might not be quite the Holy Grail (immortality is a stretch), it certainly does have some promising health effects. The drink is made from sweetened tea that is then fermented using symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (known as a...

Arsenic in Food

A

To most of us, arsenic is the de facto poison. If we want to joke that we’re going to top ourselves (I think I need to reassess my life somewhat) then normally we’ll say we’re going to take some arsenic – simply because it’s so well known for being a highly toxic substance with potentially lethal reactions. It might sound worrying then to learn that arsenic isn’t just something that Ninjas carry...

Coffee VS Energy Drinks

C

If you’re into sports of exercise then no doubt you will have come across various energy drinks and bars and will have wondered whether they have much to offer. Of course you might also have tried a few yourself and chances are you will have found them to be variably successful. The question is then, what is in energy drinks that makes them worth the price? And if it’s just...

Black or Green Tea? – What’s the Difference

B

There are few drinks as revitalizing and as refreshing as a cup of tea. Cups of tea are a great source of caffeine and a perfect pick me up for anyone feeling sluggish or tired, but aren’t as dehydrating and ‘harsh’ as coffee. These are drinks that you can enjoy in the evening, and that are perfect for enjoying with company, and there is a whole culture built around their...

Seafood Buying Tips

S

Buying seafood is a great option for your dinner. It’s quick and relatively easy to prepare, it’s different and highly tasty, and most importantly it’s incredibly healthy as a very lean source of protein that also is rich in amino acids, vitamins and healthy oils. However choosing fish at the market can be somewhat difficult – you have no way of telling how fresh the meat...

Freeze Drying Food

F

Freeze drying food is a process of preserving food and making it lighter and more convenient for a range of purposes from emergency survival food, to food for astronauts. If you are thinking of going hiking or if you are worried about disaster scenarios, then having some freeze dried food around is a good gambit. And even if you have no interest in preparing for disaster, you probably already eat...

The Truth About Caffeine: How it Really Affects Your Brain and Body

T

It seems that the vast majority of the Earth’s population – myself included – have been content to consume large quantities of a neuroactive drug without really knowing what it’s doing or how it works. All of us are hooked, to the extent that we often roll out of bed experiencing withdrawal and can’t function until we get it. It sounds like something out of science fiction, but...

What Is a TBHQ Preservative?

W

TBHQ is the considerably more memorable and catchy name for tertiary butylhydroquinone. This is a fat preservative that can be added to dog food in order to improve its shelf life. Unfortunately though, it may be somewhat unhealthy for your pup and many experts now recommend avoiding it where possible. What’s worse is that it also finds itself in a number of human foods where it is no less...
