Simply skimming the headlines on any day during the last two and a half years will provide you with a continual reminder of the importance of immune system effectiveness. That said, while many of us have started to pay attention to our wellness in general – particularly in the face of those pandemic pounds that decided to creep on surprisingly quickly – we still often keep up habits that are working directly against us.
Springtime fruits and veggies have arrived at your farmer’s markets and grocery stores (the ones that sell local produce, that is). Spring is finally here, and it won’t be long before even more great fresh produce will start to become available at all your favorite places to shop for local delights.
We’d all love to have a healthy immune system, and most of us know that our nutrition plays an important role in achieving that goal. After all, you are what you eat, right? That said, new research is showing that the interconnectivity of body functions shows that while you eat to help support your overall wellness, you are also nourishing your body’s ability for stress reduction.
At a time when doctors and nutritionists – not to mention the rest of us – had finally come to the point that they felt they had a solid understanding of fats, new research has been presented that could have us starting over again. Until now, the common belief had been that unsaturated fat was “good”, in appropriate quantities, and saturated fats were “bad” in essentially any quantity. Now, as it turns out, this may not be as true as we once thought.

If you were to believe everything you read online, you’d think that your body was filled with pollution and destructive chemicals and that there is a massive connection between this toxic body and weight loss. The story is that we breathe in these substances, eat them in our foods and drink them in everything from our specialty coffee to our glass of water. These harmful chemicals that you consume are stored in your body unless you detoxify. That’s the claim. But should you believe it? Are your liver and intestines really packed full of a backlog of all the unwanted substances to which they’ve bene exposed throughout your lifetime?
Brown fat is a part of our bodies that seems extremely counterintuitive. After all, most of us think about weight loss as a process of burning off excess fatty tissue. However, not all forms of that tissue are alike, and this particular type can actually work in your favor. It has more mitochondria than the white adipose tissue – the stuff that tends to threaten health in excessive amounts – and can even help with faster fat burning!
