Nutrient Supplements Are Even More Important For Diabetics

Every time the 14th of November rolls around, World Diabetes Day does as well, giving us yet another sad reminder of just how many lives that the disease is affecting worldwide. In the United States alone, there are nearly 27 million diabetics with an estimated 7 million more currently undiagnosed. 

That total of over 34 million Americans equals right around 13% of the total population. In other words, for each of your ten friends and family members, at least one of them is diabetic (on average). 

The really shocking part of this growth in those with diabetes, though, is how much the number just continues to grow year over year. At the start of the new millennium, when the calendar flipped to 2000, just over 9% of the population either had diabetes or was considered “undiagnosed.” That number has steadily grown year over year to get to 13% of the population. 

To put those percentages into a more recognizable format, the number of Americans officially diagnosed with diabetes in the year 2000 was just a tiny bit over 12 million. As mentioned before, that number now stands at 27 million diagnosed diabetic as of 2020.

Pumpkin Is Good For Your Health, Just Not In A Latte

Move over, pumpkin spice lattes, we’re not talking about you right now.

While it’s true that autumn often brings to mind pumpkin spice lattes (or PSLs for short) as well as pumpkin pies on the Thanksgiving table, the actual pumpkin fruit–yes, it’s technically a fruit–actually has a lot of health benefits in its natural form. Even pumpkin seeds can be a great treat to snack on while watching Netflix instead of items like potato chips and other unhealthy snacks.

3 Health Benefits of Pumpkin

  1. Pumpkin is packed with vitamins and low in calories.

6 Ways to Cut Out Processed Foods From Your Diet

Processed foods are (rightfully) earning a bad rap. They are known for their unhealthy levels of added sugar, sodium, and fat– all ingredients that can lead to obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. 

Processed foods are the archnemesis of good health, and yet, they make up over 60% of the American diet. And if you’re not sure if something is processed, ask yourself if it’s commercially packaged and not in its natural state. If your ancestors wouldn’t recognize it many generations ago,

Autumn’s Effect On Sleep, Anxiety, Depression, & Health

The skyline of burnt orange, rich gold, and rustic red make the trees resemble a chalk drawing that’s so exquisite that you’re afraid to touch it for fear of smudging the image. The pumpkins adorn the thresholds, and the smell of sweet cinnamon is second only to the sights of people sipping apple cider, sitting around the bonfire, and cheering under the Friday night lights. It’s autumn, and your cozy sweaters are ready to report for duty.

The above description of autumn is nostalgic;

Tips & Motivation for Conquering Lactose Intolerance

Not too long ago, I spoke with a 6th grade class about nutrition. When the school bell rang and students filed out of the room, one student stayed behind. “Hi!” I cheerfully greeted her when she walked toward me. 

What she said next floored me. 

She let me know that her bones are too brittle to play sports due to her lactose intolerance. She shared with me that she loves volleyball and all the sports her classmates pursue but that her doctor says her risk of fractured and broken bones are too great to play.

Pumpkins May Love Autumn, But Your Immune System Does Not

The connection between temperature and one’s immune system is about more than just your body signaling sickness with a fever. With autumn’s arrival and winter’s approach, the cooler temperatures and shorter days increase the time spent indoors. And since poorly ventilated indoor areas set the perfect landscape for infectious diseases to spread, it makes sense that as people spend more time indoors, their opportunity to experience an attack on their immune system increases.

In addition to autumn signaling the start to more indoor time,

The American Diet Is Even Worse Than You May Think

It’s a stereotype that we often hear, but it’s also very true: Americans aren’t a very healthy group of people. Over one in three people in the United States are considered obese, and there are only eleven countries in the world that have a higher percentage of obese adults than the USA.

What’s even more shocking (and I use that term loosely) is that a new study was recently published by the Mayo Clinic Proceedings that found that less than 3 percent of Americans live a “healthy lifestyle.”

The standard American day has become one that is built on speed and convenience.

Feeling Higher Levels of Anxiety? It’s Time To Check Your Gut

If you’re feeling more anxious lately, you’re not alone. Reported symptoms of anxiety and depression rose over 5 percent during the 2020 pandemic, and it’s estimated that nearly one in  three adults in the U.S. will experience some sort of anxiety disorder in their lifetime. 

With those numbers, not many people will be too surprised to note an increase in pharmaceutical prescriptions as well; anti-anxiety drugs along with antidepressants have seen a significant increase in prescription rates over the last year,

Your Body Needs These 6 Nutrients & Here’s How To Get Them

By definition, the word essential means absolutely necessary. Unfortunately, though, the world thinks of nutrients, even those deemed essential, as optional.

From money spent to time invested, the food receiving the majority of attention and consumption are those laden with fat, sodium, sugar, and so many preservatives that experts find a hard time calling much of what the U.S. eats food.
