A new report has recently been published, showing that dieters are starting to move away from the low-calorie products that had once been the top choice for those who were trying to lose weight. They find them “dissatisfying” and are simply no longer interested in choosing these items that don’t seem to work for them.
Vision supplement ingredients vary widely from one product to another, so how do you know which ones will support your eye health, and which ones won’t do you much good? It’s an important question. Many optometrists recommend taking these products to help ensure you are nourishing these sensitive and irreplaceable parts of your body, and the key to seeing the world around you.
Everywhere we look, it feels like we are being encouraged to eat more fiber. Whether it’s in healthy living articles in the newspaper or advertised on the front of products that are boasting the fact that they are “high in fiber”, everything seems to indicate that this is a very important part of our overall health and that it encourages greater weight loss. But what is the truth behind all of these claims?
Just as most of us aren’t all that keen to watch wrinkles forming prematurely on our faces or having our hair turn silver, most of us certainly don’t want to experience immune system aging any sooner than necessary. Unfortunately, just as stress is known to take its toll on our appearance, it can also wreak havoc on our bodies’ defenses.

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.
