Let's Dish Some Dirt! It's Good Stuff!!

Ok....calm down no one is eating any dirt here!  I am a bit nutty but not THAT nutty LOL!!!
There has been a lot of buzz around lately about good old fashioned dirt and the positive effects it has on our life and bodies.  So I have grabbed some info and going to toss it your way.

Who's ready to Dish Some Dirt?

Here is some recent information that was aired on the "Dr. Oz Show" it just a basic start to get a little "dirty"

Discover the Clean 15

The way that many fruits and vegetables are grown these days involves tons of pesticides and other chemicals to keep the bugs and dirt off. But letting fruits and veggies grow in the ground in their natural environment is what gives them added nutrients that are healthy for our bodies. Make sure you add these 15 foods into your diet to build up your immune system: avocado, corn, pineapples, cabbage, sweet peas, onion, asparagus, mangoes, kiwi, eggplant, grapefruit, cantaloupe, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and papaya. 

Remember: You should always wash your produce before eating if you buy it from a grocery store, however make sure you are not scrubbing them clean, as that can destroy their protective outer layer of microbes that are beneficial to our bodies. 

Introduce Spices into Cooking

Adding spices into your food is another great way to make sure your food has a daily dose of dirt in it. Plus, spices are loaded with antioxidants and are anti-inflammatories which can help with a lot of health issues. For example, black cumin seed helps with asthma, cayenne pepper eases pain, and fresh rosemary can boost memory. 

Train Your Children's Tastebuds

Natural, bitter foods, are super healthy for you but can also be percieved as gross to kids. In fact, kids usually need to taste something 20 or 30 times to get used to a flavor. Kale, dark chocolate, lemon zest, and other bitter foods contain carotenoids and flavonoids that can help with digestion, asthma, flu, and strep throat. 

Now on to more "Dirt"


Did You Know…that a simple substance found in dirt may be one of nature’s most powerful detoxifiers and immunity boosters?

There’s a little known nutrient that can bolster the immune system, enhance uptake of key vitamins and minerals, and even help detox your body.  Found deep within the soil—approximately 30-feet deep in fact—is an organic substance called humus.  These rich soil deposits are formed from the remains of decomposed plants and vegetation from thousands… and sometimes millions… of years ago.  Humus is rich in humic acid, a unique molecular complex that acts as a powerful antioxidant and heavy metal detoxifier.

Unfortunately, we have a humic acid deficiency crisis on our hands.  Humus has been found naturally in food ever since the days of our primitive ancestors.  But with the advent of industrial farming practices such as the spraying of chemicals and pesticides, our soil has become depleted of nutrients and our food is no longer supplying the humic acid our bodies crave.  In fact, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports a 25-80% decrease in vital minerals in our food sources!  Leading scientists theorize that an insufficient intake of humic acid might just be playing a significant role in the steady rise of degenerative diseases that plague the modern world.

Toxin Eliminator 

Farmers have long used humic acid to generate plant enzymes and root growth, to convert nutrients in the soil into plant food, and to neutralize toxic pesticides.

Turns out, humic acid works its same kind of magic on the human body.  Humic acid is able to bind with both positively charged and negatively charged ions.  As an antioxidant, humic acid magnetizes to free radicals, neutralizing their power before they can damage the cell.  Humic acid can also bind to positively charged ions in the body, like particles of magnesium, calcium, cadmium, and iron… a process that helps to purify the body of toxins.  As a detoxifying agent, humic acid either converts toxins into benign compounds, or eliminates them safely as waste.  Scientists are currently studying just how humic acid might be applied to help not only detox the body of heavy metals, but to also prevent toxins from entering the body in the first place.

Immune System Strengthener 
Humic acid helps to strengthen the immune system by boosting uptake and increasing absorption of nutrients.  One molecule of humic acid is powerful enough to carry more than 70 minerals and trace elements into cells!  It increases cell permeability by converting vitamins and minerals into organic, ionic forms that are easier to transport.

A potent anti-viral, humic acid is able to spot and destroy viruses lurking outside of healthy cells, and has been used to treat influenza, avian flu, swine flu, and other viral infections.  Some studies even suggest that humic acid gives red blood cells a lift, helping to accelerate wound repair.

Supplementing with Humic Acid 
Humic and fulvic acids (fulvic acids are humic acids of lower molecular weight and higher oxygen content) can be purchased as nutritional supplements.  Fulvic acid is often found in liquid form as a component of mineral colloids.  It is interesting to note, however, that an estimated 80% of pharmaceutical drugs are small, isolated synthetic fragments of this organic, and complete, extract that originates directly from Mother Nature.

Drink this Not That! Ditch that Dangerous Energy Drink!

Starting out with just a little info I grabbed about how dangerous these "Energy" Drinks are there are other safer alternatives that will no cause harm to your body, it will actually help repair issues you have all while you have a more natural energy.......Read on to learn about the alternative as well.
First the Bad News..........
Concerns about the drinks – which have been linked to heart and neurological problems, ​as well as poor mental health and substance use among teens – are rampant, too.  Between 2007 and 2011, emergency room visits involving energy drinks doubled to more than 20,000, according to a report fromthe Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Even some of the products’ biggest fans don't endorse them. “It definitely makes you feel pretty amazing because you get a boost of energy that you don’t currently have,” Templin says. “Would I recommend them? No. They are terrible for you. Terrible in so many ways.”
Labeling Confusion
One of the major critiques of energy drinks is that not all are well-regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. ​That means energy drink companies can market their products as dietary supplements and forgo a nutrition facts label, leaving consumers to wonder whether what they see is what they get, says Ruth Litchfield​, an associate professor in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Iowa State University. 
Sugar, Caffeine, Guarana, Oh My!​
Of course, transparent labeling doesn’t change what’s in the energy drinks themselves, including loads of sugar – often as much as a can of soda, says Kelly Pritchett, a dietitian and spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. 

The caffeine content of energy drinks, meanwhile, can range from 80 milligrams in an 8-ounce Red Bull to over 350 milligrams in 16 ounces of the no-calorie energy drink Bang​, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest.  
While experts believe it's safe for most healthy adults to consume up to 400 milligrams of caffeine a day – about the equivalent of one venti 20-ounce Starbucks coffee or two shots of 5-Hour Energy, CSPI reports – downing multiple energy drinks daily could quickly put someone over that limit, increasing their risk for headaches as well as boost blood pressure and heart rate, Litchfield says. 

What's more, the drinks' advertised caffeine counts could be underestimates, since they may not take into account caffeine from ingredients like guarana. "In combination," Pritchett says, "it could be a double whammy."
It also matters what you drink your energy drink with. If it's alcohol, be careful: ​Research compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests that caffeine can mask some of alcohol's effects and raise drinkers' chances of binge drinking. One study published last year in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research found that participants who drank a cocktail with Red Bull and vodka had a greater urge to keep drinking than those whose drinks included soda water instead of Red Bull. 
In his research out this month in the journal Postgraduate Medicine, Ali and his colleagues reviewed 43 studies on the adverse health effects of energy drinks. They found that most cases involved heart abnormalities like irregular heartbeat, while some documented neurological problems like seizures. Why? Animal studies have shown that caffeine and taurine, both common energy drink ingredients, intensify each other’s effects. That may cause calcium to build up in the heart cells, which can cause those vessels to constrict, Ali says.
But it's hard to know how much is too much since few of the case reports included in the study specified how many energy drinks the patients consumed, Ali says. But he and other experts recommend most adults drink no more than one a day. Guidelines from the Mayo Clinic concur.
“Energy drinks have all those stimulants, and if the person is going through some kind of physical stress or physical exercise, those stimulants will further exaggerate or exacerbate the electrical activity going on in the heart,” Ali says.
Now the Good News.........

Vibrant Energy Drink is all about energy... healthy energy. Vibrant is the first healthy energy drink that actually has health benefits. Vibrant balances a proprietary combination of highly-effective, all natural ingredients that work together on the cellular level with your body's metabolism to promote healthy energy levels.

Body Detoxification..Do You Need it?

The selective elimination of harmful substances leaves the body with more energy for physical performance and regenerative processes. The result is optimized performance and wellness through detoxification, entirely naturally!
A modern lifestyle exposes our bodies to a huge amount of harmful influences on a daily basis; environmental pollutants, an unhealthy diet, alcohol and tobacco, medications, infections, heavy metals and radioactive cations, pesticides, acidic metabolic waste products and stress, just to name a few!
We normally assume that our bodies are able to deal with all this stress, at least up to the point at which signs like poor performance, premature aging and illness indicate quite the contrary.
In order to counteract such processes, it is advisable to assist the body with detoxifying, cleansing and regenerating on a regular basis.

Zeolite is a volcanic mineral with a selective molecular trap able to carry harmful toxic substances out of the body via normal excretion processes without interacting with body tissue. This lack of interaction reduces the chance of unwanted side effects.

Zeolite minerals have several outstanding physical properties:
Ion-exchange capability: Toxic heavy metals such as lead, cadmium or cesium bond with Zeolite and are flushed out; in return, the body receives beneficial ions such as magnesium or calcium.
Adsorptive and detoxifying effect: Zeolite is capable of bonding with a whole range of unwanted substances, including acidic metabolic waste products, bacterial toxins and pro-inflammatory substances. The body is relieved of waste products and can use more of its energy for regenerative processes.
Antioxidant properties: Free radicals build up in our bodies through metabolic processes, a poor diet, prescription drugs, environmental influences, etc. This paves the way for countless degenerative and inflammatory diseases. Zeolite binds with and eliminates free radicals, while preventing new ones from forming.
Specific Zeolite benefits may also include:
  • Zeolite can boost the body's natural detoxification capabilities
  • reducing strain on the digestive system
  • extra support for elimination organs
  • increased energy
  • clearer skin
  • better sleep
  • greater mental clarity
  • a stronger and more efficient immune system
  • fewer colds and flu's
  • alleviating allergy symptoms
  • improvement of inflammatory conditions and
  • balancing the body's pH and reducing acid reflux

Turmeric Health Benefits

7 Powerful Turmeric Health Benefits & Side Effects

Turmeric is an ancient root used for its healing properties for centuries. Turmeric comes from the rhizome (rootstock) of the Curcuma longa plant. To manufacture it, the roots of the plant are boiled, dried and then ground into a powder. Traditionally used in Chinese and Indian folk medicine, turmeric benefits are amazing and able to treat a wide range of illnesses. The powerful anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities of turmeric have made it a precious commodity for ages!
Referred to as “Indian saffron” in medieval England, turmeric wasn’t understood or valued for a long time. People used it as natural food dye instead of as the unbelievable healing agent it really is. The many turmeric health benefits are truly incredible!
With a peppery, warm and bitter flavor, the mild fragrance of turmeric resembles orange and ginger, which makes it a national favorite in curry dishes dating back centuries. Today, it’s widely used in yellow mustard and as a natural health supplement.
Next to essential oils, few natural remedies have reached mainstream use like turmeric has these past few years. Interestingly enough, you’d expect that Americans would catch on sooner, considering that we’ve doused our Ball Park franks in yellow mustard since 1904. That was the year R.T. French Co. first started to use turmeric as a preservative and color agent for “creamy salad mustard.”

The Key to Turmeric Health Benefits

The key to turmeric’s healing power is the chemical compound curcumin. Nearly 7,000 peer-reviewed scientific articles are published evaluating its effectiveness, and although some side effects are reported, the resounding feedback from the research community is that turmeric and its primary component, curcumin, hold some profound healing benefits for the entire body. Take, for instance, just a few of the most recent research studies published within the past few months showing that curcumin can:
  • Increase lifespan. 
  • Protect the liver oxidative stress. 
  • Kill fungus more effectively than ginger, clove and oregano. 
  • Induce tumor cell death in the deepest parts of individual cells. 
  • Kill bladder cancer cells. 
  • Destroy lung cancer cells. 
  • Lower blood cholesterol levels. 
  • Protect against cognitive/memory defects from heavy ion irradiation. 

Top 7 Proven Turmeric Health Benefits

The list of healing powers attributed to turmeric curcumin seems to go on for days. Of the studies testing its effectiveness and safety, very few report any side effects whatsoever. Although inherent dangers exist for certain people, the vast majority of research findings center on the turmeric health benefits and its healing properties.
Some health conditions turmeric helps with are:

1. Chronic Inflammation and Pain

The journal Oncogene published the results of a study that evaluated several anti-inflammatory compounds. It found that aspirin (Bayer, etc.) and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, etc.) are least potent, while curcumin is among the most potent anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative agents in the world.  This means turmeric not only has great promise with chronic pain, but since it has less side effects, it may provide safe, lasting results!

2. Rheumatoid Arthritis

Due to its high anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric is highly effective at helping people manage rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A recent study out of Japan evaluated its relationship with interleukin (IL)-6, the inflammatory cytokine known to be involved in the RA process, and discovered that curcumin “significantly reduced” these inflammatory markers. This suggests that regular turmeric use could be a potent strategy to prevent the onset of RA from developing to begin with! 

3. Depression

Researchers from the Government Medical College (Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India) published the results of the first study this past April to evaluate curcumin’s ability to manage depression in a controlled setting. Taking 60 volunteers diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD) and diving the group to determine how patients treated by curcumin compared against fluoxetine (Prozac) and a combination of the two, it discovered that that the principal curcuminoid in turmeric is not only as effective as Prozac in managing depression, it doesn’t carry with it all the dangerous side effects as anti-depressive drugs do. According to the paper, “This study provides first clinical evidence that cur cumin may be used as an effective and safe modality for treatment in patients with MDD.” 

4. Diabetes

Turmeric is shown to lower blood glucose levels and reverse insulin resistance. For instance, an article published in Biochemistry and Biophysical Research Communications shared a study out of Auburn University that discovered curcumin suppresses glucose production in the liver. Fascinatingly, researchers proved that it’s actually 400 times more potent than Metformin (a common diabetes drug) in activating AMPK and its downstream target acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC). Turmeric acted as an anti-diabetic and antioxidant in diabetes, especially type 1 diabetes , improved metabolic function and reduced the risk of plaque buildup in the arteries of type 2 diabetes patients .

5. Cancer

Recent studies show turmeric is a powerful adversary to cancer. Curcumin shows a marked ability to inhibit cancer cell growth, boost antioxidant levels and the immune system, and kill cancer cells. It seems to work on improving mitochondrial function at a cellular level, and it improves metabolism. Even against drug-resistant strains of leukemia, curcumin caused cell death of cancer cells.

6. Skin and Aging

Turmeric has many healing properties for skin. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory so it reduces redness or other skin irritations. It’s antibacterial, so it’s great for blemishes, acne and skin balance. Turmeric is wonderful at improving the texture of the skin because it is an exfoliant but also rich in antioxidants. It’s a wonderful natural treatment inside and out!

7. Brain Health and Memory

It’s all in your head … literally. This vital organ is the fundamental keeper of everything you’re able to think, act or dream. By taking turmeric, you can improve the oxygen intake of the brain, which helps in all of the brain’s functions and processes. Turmeric is extremely healing for the brain and for increasing memory function. Not surprisingly, when your brain functions at its best, then you increase the uptake of hormones, such as seratonin and melatonin. So, by healing the basic functioning of the brain, you can also heal other mental illnesses.

Turmeric vs. Modern Medicine

Turmeric curcumin is so effective at managing these health concerns that after examining the research, I found that turmeric benefits go well beyond that of these 10 drugs:
  • Anti-inflammatories
  • Anti-depressants (Prozac)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Anti-coagulants (aspirin)
  • Pain killers
  • Diabetes drugs (Metformin)
  • Arthritis medications
  • Inflammatory bowel disease drugs
  • Cholesterol drugs (Lipitor)
  • Steroids

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family and is the main ingredient in curry. It has a warm, bitter taste and is frequently used to flavor or color curry powders, mustards, butters, and cheeses.
The noticeable yellow/orange pigment of turmeric is called curcumin. Curcumin is thought to be the primary pharmacological agent in turmeric. In numerous studies, curcumin's anti-inflammatory effects have been shown to be comparable to the potent as well as over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs. Unlike the drugs, which are associated with significant toxic effects (ulcer formation, decreased white blood cell count, intestinal bleeding), curcumin produces no toxicity.
Curcumin C3 Complex is the foremost clinically studied natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with a variety of health benefits. Regeneration's Curcumin Brand is a mixture of curcuminoids, not just curcumin. It also contains 2 other Curcumins called demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin.

The most active ingredient in turmeric root, bisdemethoxycurcumin, boosts the activity of the immune system in Alzheimer's patients, helping them to clear the amyloid beta plaques characteristic of the disease.
In healthy patients, immune cells called macrophages, which engulf and destroy abnormal cells and suspected pathogens, efficiently clear amyloid beta, but macrophage activity is suppressed in Alzheimer's patients.
Using blood samples from Alzheimer's patients, Drs. Milan Fiala and John Cashman have shown that bisdemethoxycurcumin boosts macrophage activity to normal levels, helping to clear amyloid beta. Fiala and Cashman also observed that bisdemethoxycurcumin was more effective in promoting the clearance of amyloid beta in some patients' blood than others, hinting at a genetic element. Further study revealed the genes involved are MGAT III and Toll-like receptors, which are also responsible for a number of other key immune functions. Bisdemethoxycurcumin enhances the transcription of these genes, correcting the immune defects seen in Alzheimer's patients. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2007 Jul 31;104(31):12849-54.
What are the health benefits of Curcumin C3 Complex?
Powerful antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory, Boosts immunity, Supports healthy cholesterol levels, Supports healthy blood sugar levels, Blocks platelet aggregation, Protects liver from toxic compounds, Stimulates macrophages to clear the central nervous system from Alzheimer's disease & associated toxic oligomer, Specifically inhibited virus replication in tested viruses.

All About Spirulina

Spirulina is a microalgae that has been consumed for centuries due to its high nutritional value and supposed health benefits. Today, popular lifestyle personalities endorse Spirulina as a secret, potent "superfood," a "miracle from the sea."

"Spirulina" sounds so much better than "pond scum," but that's what the popular supplement really is — a type of blue-green algae that grows naturally in oceans and salty lakes in subtropical climates. The Aztecs harvested Spirulina from Lake Texcoco in central Mexico, and it is still harvested from Lake Chad in west-central Africa and turned into dry cakes.

Spirulina was once classified as a plant because of "its richness in plant pigments as well as its ability of photosynthesis," according to a study published in the journal Cardiovascular Therapeutics. New understanding of its genetics, physiology and biochemical properties caused scientists to move it to the bacteria kingdom, in the genusArthrospira at first, and later into the genus Spirulina. There are several species, but three — Spirulina platensisSpirulina maxima and Spirulina fusiformis — are studied extensively because of their high nutritional as well as potential therapeutic values, according to the study's authors.

Spirulina grows in microscopic spirals, which tend to stick together, making it easy to harvest. It has an intense blue-green color, but a relatively mild taste. Aside from supplements, the U.S.Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows manufacturers to useSpirulina as a color additive in gum, candy and other packaged foods.

Blu-Lina Organic Spirulina by Regeneration USA is a highly nutritious and easily digested algae water plant. Spirulina has been an important and rich food source for peoples of Africa and the America's for centuries. In modern times, it earned widespread popularity as a dietary supplement when NASA began including it in the space diet of astronauts.
Spirulina contains unusually high amounts of vegetable protein (3-4 times higher than fish or beef) and iron, which may be particularly useful for vegetarians. Spirulina contains all 8 essential amino acids. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes and anti-oxidants. It contains high levels of phycocyanin, carotenoids which protects cells (5 times more than carrots, 40 time more than spinach), and high volumes of essential fatty acids (which may reduce cholesterol and prevent heart disease). Spirulina contains 65% protein and amino acids including the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which has gotten a lot of attention for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Spirulina is known to be a prebiotic, encouraging the growth of helpful bacteria in the gut. Studies have noted the beneficial effects of spirulina supplementation for blood lipid profiles, inflammation reduction, and antioxidant capacity in patients with type 2 Diabetes.  Spirulina also contains Omega 3-,6 and 9s and is especially high in Omega-3s.
Studies confirm that spirulina strengthens immunity; it improves the activity of white blood cells, stimulates antibodies and increases the population of natural killer cells. It is a potent anti-viral food.
Spirulina is high in chlorophyll, which builds healthy blood, resulting in better circulation and less inflammation. It may also prevent premature aging removing toxins from the blood and boosting the immune system.
Blu-Lina Organic Spirulina by Regeneration USA combines the powerful antioxidant properties of Zanthin Natural Astaxanthin to form a powerful superfood!
Spirulina is a natural “algae” (cyanbacteria) powder that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins and other nutrients. When harvested correctly from non-contaminated ponds and bodies of water, it is one of the most potent nutrient sources available. It is largely made up of protein and essential amino acids, and is typically recommended to vegetarians for its high natural iron content. It is often touted for its high B-12 content, though there is a lot of debate about if this particular form is a complete and absorbable form of B-12 and I don’t recommend it completely in place of animal products.
Health Benefits of Spirulina:
Spirulina is a great source of other nutrients including: vitamins B-1(thiamine), B-2 (riboflavin), B-3(nicotinamide), B-6 (pyridoxine), B-9 (folic acid), vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin A and vitamin E. It is also a source of potassium, calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium,  manganese, phosphorus,  selenium, sodium and zinc. Spirulina contains many pigments which may be beneficial and bioavailable.
Spirulina was tested by an independent laboratory and found to have an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) of over 24,000 which is 4x the ORAC score of blueberries. The ORAC score is generally used to measure antioxidant ability and concentration in different foods.
Spirulina is also incredibly high in calcium with over 26 times the calcium in milk, making it excellent for children, the elderly and during pregnancy.
Some research has suggested that Spirulina may be helpful for those with allergies and allergic reactions.
Spirulina’s phosphorus content makes it helpful as part of a tooth re-mineralization regimen.
Spirulina can bind with heavy metals in the body and help remove them.
