What is Organic Food?

 Organic food r refers to food items that are produced, processed and packaged without using chemicals. Organic food is increasingly becoming popular due to its perceived health benefits over conventional food. The industry is growing rapidly since the past five years and has caught the attention of farmers, manufacturers and, above all, consumers.

According to Datamonitor, the global organic food market was about USD 36.7 billion in 2006, USD 43.5 billion in 2007 and USD 52 billion in 2008 according to Datamonitor. In 2006, over 30 percent of the global organic demand scame from the US, which has a market of about USD 13.6 billion, according to Nutrition Business Journal. In spite of global recession, the organic food industry showed double digit growth in 2007 and 2008. According to Datamonitor, the industry grew by 10.9% and 13.7% in 2007 and 2008 respectively.

Organic Certification Agencies in India

 Organic Certification is necessary to prove that your produce is organic in nature. There are no tests to distinguish between organic and non-organic food and hence a certificatoin remains the only way of proving that your produce is organic. In such a scenario, it is necessary to know which agencies provide organic certifications.

Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

 The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV and cancer, dental care, and bone strength. These benefits of coconut oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, soothing, etc.

How is Lauric Acid Used by our body?
The human body converts lauric acid into monolaurin which is claimed to help in dealing with viruses and bacteria causing diseases such as herpes, influenza, cytomegalovirus, and even HIV. It helps in fighting harmful bacteria such as listeria monocytogenes and heliobacter pylori, and harmful protozoa such as giardia lamblia. As a result of these various health benefits of coconut oil, though its exact mechanism of action was unknown, it has been extensively used in Ayurveda, the traditional Indian medicinal system.
Before we move on to the benefits of coconut oil in detail, let us understand its composition.

Composition of Coconut Oil: Coconut oil consists of more than ninety percent of saturated fats (Don’t panic! First read to the last word. Your opinion may change), with traces of few unsaturated fatty acids, such as monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Virgin Coconut Oil is no different from this. Let us have a bit detailed study of this.
The Saturated Fatty Acids: Most of them are Medium Chain Triglycerides, which are supposed to assimilate well. Lauric Acid is the chief contributor, with more than forty percent of the share, followed by Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid, Myristic Acid and Palmitic.
The Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids: Linoleic Acid.
The Monounsaturated Fatty Acids: Oleic Acid.
The Poly-phenols: Gallic Acid, which is phenolic acid. These poly-phenols are supposed to be responsible for the fragrance and the taste of Coconut Oil and Virgin Coconut Oil is rich in these poly-phenols.
Certain derivatives of fatty acid like Betaines, Ethanolamide, Ethoxylates, Fatty Esters, Fatty Polysorbates, Monoglycerides and Polyol Esters.
Fatty Chlorides, Fatty Alcohol Sulphate and Fatty Alcohol Ether Sulphate, all of which are derivatives of Fatty Alcohols.
Vitamin-E and Vitamin K and minerals such as Iron.

Let us now explore the benefits of coconut oil in detail:

 Hair Care: Coconut oil is one of the best natural nutrition for hair. It helps in healthy growth of hair providing them a shiny complexion. Regular massage of the head with coconut oil ensures that your scalp is free of dandruff, lice, and lice eggs, even if your scalp is dry. Coconut oil is extensively used in the Indian sub-continent for hair care. It is an excellent conditioner and helps in the re-growth of damaged hair. It also provides the essential proteins required for nourishing damaged hair. It is therefore used as hair care oil and used in manufacturing various conditioners, and dandruff relief creams. Coconut oil is normally applied topically for hair care.

Stress Relief: Coconut oil is very soothing and hence it helps in removing stress. Applying coconut oil to the head followed with a gentle massage helps in removing mental fatig

Skin Care: Coconut oil is excellent massage oil for the skin as well. It acts as an effective moisturizer on all types of skins including dry skin. The benefit of coconut oil on the skin is comparable to that of mineral oil. Further, unlike mineral oil, there is no chance of having any adverse side effects on the skin with the application of coconut oil. Coconut oil therefore is a safe solution for preventing dryness and flaking of skin. It also delays wrinkles, and sagging of skin which normally become prominent with age. Coconut oil also helps in treating various skin problems including psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and other skin infections. Therefore coconut oil forms the basic ingredient of various body care products such as soaps, lotions, creams, etc., used for skin care.

Premature Aging: Coconut oil helps in preventing premature aging and degenerative diseases due to its antioxidant properties.

Heart Diseases: There is a misconception spread among many people that coconut oil is not good for the heart. This is because it contains a large quantity of saturated fats. However, coconut oil is beneficial for the heart. It contains about 50% lauric acid, which helps in preventing various heart problems including high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. The saturated fats present in coconut oil are not harmful as it happens in case of other vegetables oils. It does not lead to increase in LDL levels. It also reduces the incidence of injury in arteries and therefore helps in preventing atherosclerosis.

Weight Loss: Coconut oil is very useful in reducing weight. It contains short and medium-chain fatty acids that help in taking off excessive weight. It is also easy to digest and it helps in healthy functioning of the thyroid and enzymes systems. Further, it increases the body metabolism by removing stress on pancreases, thereby burning out more energy and helping obese and overweight people reduce their weight. Hence, people living in tropical coastal areas, who eat coconut oil daily as their primary cooking oil, are normally not fat, obese or overweight.

Pancreatitis: Coconut oil is also believed to be useful in treating pancreatitis.

Digestion: Internal use of coconut oil occurs primarily as cooking oil. Coconut oil helps in improving the digestive system and thus prevents various stomach and digestion related problems including irritable bowel syndrome. The saturated fats present in coconut oil have anti microbial properties and help in dealing with various bacteria, fungi, parasites, etc., that cause indigestion. Coconut oil also helps in absorption of other nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids.

Immunity: Coconut oil is also good for the immune system. It strengthens the immune system as it contains antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid which have antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. The human body converts lauric acid into monolaurin which is claimed to help in dealing with viruses and bacteria causing diseases such as herpes, influenza, cytomegalovirus, and even HIV. It helps in fighting harmful bacteria such as listeria monocytogenes and heliobacter pylori, and harmful protozoa such as giardia lamblia.

Healing: When applied on infections, it forms a chemical layer which protects the infected body part from external dust, air, fungi, bacteria and virus. Coconut oil is most effective on bruises as it speeds up the healing process by repairing damaged tissues.

Infections: Coconut oil is very effective against a variety of infections due to its antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties. According to the Coconut Research Center, coconut oil kills viruses that cause influenza, measles, hepatitis, herpes, SARS, etc. It also kills bacteria that cause ulcers, throat infections, urinary tract infections, pneumonia, and gonorrhea, etc. Coconut oil is also effective on fungi and yeast that cause candidiasis, ringworm, athlete's foot, thrush, diaper rash, etc.

Liver: The presence of medium chain triglycerides and fatty acids helps in preventing liver diseases as they substances are easily converted into energy when they reach the liver, thus reducing work load on the liver and also preventing accumulation of fat.

Kidney: Coconut oil helps in preventing kidney and gall bladder diseases. It also helps in dissolving kidney stones.

Diabetes: Coconut oil helps in controlling blood sugar, and improves the secretion of insulin. It also helps in effective utilization of blood glucose, thereby preventing and treating diabetes.

Bones: As mentioned earlier, coconut oil improves the ability of our body to absorb important minerals. These include calcium and magnesium which are necessary for development of bones. Thus coconut oil is very useful to women who are prone to osteoporosis after middle age.

Dental Care: Calcium is an important element present in teeth. Since coconut oil facilitates absorption of calcium by the body, it helps in getting strong teeth. Coconut oil also stops tooth decay.

HIV and Cancer: It is believed that coconut oil plays an instrumental role in reducing viral susceptibility of HIV and cancer patients.

Finally, coconut oil is often preferred by athletes and body builders and by those who are dieting. The reason behind this being that coconut oil contains lesser calories than other oils, its fat content is easily converted into energy and it does not lead to accumulation of fat in the heart and arteries. Coconut oil helps in boosting energy and endurance, and enhances the performance of athletes.

Red Wine - Heart Health benefits?

( Does red wine protect against heart disease? Maybe. Many studies investigated the benefits of red wine suggested that moderate amount of red wine (one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men) lowers the risk of heart attack for people in middle age by ~ 30 to 50 percent. It is also suggested that alcohol such as red wine may prevent additional heart attacks if you have already suffered from one. Other studies also indicated that red wine can raise HDL cholesterol (the Good cholesterol) and prevent LDL cholesterol (the Bad cholesterol) from forming. Red wine may help prevent blood clots and reduce the blood vessel damage caused by fat deposits. Indeed, studies showed that people from the Mediterranean region who regularly drank red wine have lower risks of heart disease

What's in Red Wine that are good for heart?

Red wine is a particularly rich source of antioxidants flavonoid phenolics, so many studies to uncover a cause for red wine's effects have focused on its phenolic constituents, particularly resveratrol and the flavonoids. Resveratrol, found in grape skins and seeds, increases HDL cholesterol and prevent blood clotting. Flavonoids, on the other hand, exhibit antioxidant properties helping prevent blood clots and plaques formation in arteries.

Should I start drinking more red wine now?

The answer is No. Studies showed that alcohol drinking may increase triglycerides (another Bad blood lipids) and result in weight gain due to its empty calories. Other studies also suggested that alcohol consumption is associated with cancer risk. Read Alcohol and Cancer. The American Heart Association cautions people NOT to start drinking if they do not already drink alcohol. If you already drink alcohol, do so in moderation. AHA recommends one to two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women. (A drink is one 12 oz. beer, 4 oz. of wine, 1.5 oz. of 80-proof spirits, or 1 oz. of 100-proof spirits.)

Guyabano Cancer Cure

 Guyabano, The Soursop Fruit has cancer curing abilities. The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo. The taste is not bad after all. It’s completely natural and definitely has no side effects..

Guyabano is a tree called graviola in Brazil , guanabana in Spanish and has the uninspiring name “soursop” in English.

The fruit is very large and the subacid sweet white pulp is eaten out of hand or, more commonly, used to make fruit drinks, sherbets and such.

The principal interest in this plant is because of its strong anti-cancer effects. This plant is a proven cancer remedy for cancers of all types. Besides being a cancer remedy, graviola is a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent for both bacterial and fungal infections, is effective against internal parasites and worms, lowers high blood pressure and is used for depression, stress and nervous disorders.

Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to:

* Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss
* Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections
* Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment
* Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life
* Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer..
* The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
* What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells.

 Various parts of the Graviola tree–including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds–have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis.

Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree’s anti-cancerous properties–and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.

The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976.

The results showed that Graviola’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells.” Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public. Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, but as of now, no double-blind clinical trials.

A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin…”

The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched.

Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.

A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers.

Note By Tom Coghill. This research looks good but cancer is never that easy to heal. It would be great to put this to the test. The juice would have to be fresh. The seeds have to be removed before blending or juicing.

Why the Body Requires Minerals - Essential Nutrients

Minerals such as sodium and potassium help balance fluid levels, calcium keeps bones healthy and selenium protects the immune system.

As with vitamins, the body also requires a range of minerals in order to function properly and maintain good health. Minerals come from the earth and are nutrients which work individually and in combination with other substances to create specific reactions in the body.
Where to Source Essential Minerals

Essential minerals needed by the body to perform a variety of functions may be sourced from salt and different foods, such as vegetables. In Nutrition in Essence, Bearden (2006) highlights where essential minerals may be sourced, to include the following:
sodium - common table salt, sea salt
potassium - dark green vegetables, milk, meat
calcium/magnesium - nuts, seeds, legumes, dark green vegetables, seafood, meat
zinc - oysters, red meat, nuts, seeds, fish, whole-grains, sea salt
iodine - sea vegetables, sea salt, seafood, dairy products
selenium - Brazil nuts, seafood
chromium - brewer's yeast, liver, nuts, whole-grains
iron - eggs, fish, liver, meat, leafy green vegetables

For those who find it a real struggle to eat a health balanced diet, it is well worth discussing mineral supplements with the family doctor. A referral to a nutritionist or dietitian may then be offered, if deemed appropriate. Sufferers of certain health conditions, such as the eating disorder anorexia nervosa, are also likely to benefit from taking a multivitamin and mineral supplement, particularly in the early stages of recovery.

Mineral Health Benefits - Why the Body Requires Minerals

Just as with vitamins, the body is in need of the minerals found in foods and salts in order to function properly, making it important to ensure one is maintaining a healthy, nutritious dietary intake. In The Essential Guide to Vitamins, Minerals and Herbal Supplements, Brewer (2010) identifies health benefits associated with minerals, as follows:
sodium - passes nerve/brain cell messages, helps heart muscles contract
potassium - flushes excess sodium from body, balances fluid levels
calcium - builds strong bones, healthy teeth, reduces osteoporosis risk
magnesium - maintains healthy tissues, strong bones/teeth
zinc - boosts immune system, improves fertility
iodine - vital for producing thyroid hormones
selenium - normal cell growth, immune function
chromium - improves glucose tolerance, slimming aid
iron - essential for healthy blood cells

While the above are just some of the various ways the body uses essential minerals, there are many more healing properties associated with such nutrients. This is why nutritionists have for many years been recommending the five a day of fruits and vegetables, in order to stand the best chance of obtaining both essential minerals and vitamins required for optimum health.

As highlighted above, minerals such as calcium, selenium, potassium and iron are essential for health and may be sourced from a diet which is rich in nuts and seeds, seafood, whole-grains and leafy green vegetables. Those not obtaining sufficient nutrients through their diet, such as those at risk of osteoporosis or suffering with anorexia nervosa, may benefit from taking a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement.

Why the Body Requires Protein - Different Protein Sources

 The body primarily requires protein to grow and repair any parts which have been damaged; it is also essential for the heart muscles and brain.

Along with fats and carbohydrates, protein is a macro-nutrient which is an essential component to any healthy balanced diet. Protein differs from the other macro-nutrients as it is the only one which contains nitrogen atoms.
Why the Body Requires Protein

Protein is necessary for a whole range of different body functions and must be included to form a core part of dietary intake. In The Essential Guide to Vitamins, Minerals and Herbal Supplements, Brewer (2010) highlights why the body requires protein, to include the following:
Proteins play a structural role in the body.
They are vital for immune defences.
They are basic building blocks.
They help muscle growth. Bodybuilders often use protein supplements to bulk up.

Further health benefits and properties associated with protein, identified by Bearden (2006) in Nutrition in Essence, include the following:
Ads by Google
Immunogenicity Testing Episcreen T cell assay technology for biologics
Beta Amyloid Peptides Use Recombinant Amyloid Peptides Avoid Batch to Batch Problems...

Different Protein Sources – Animal, Vegetable and Dairy Proteins

There are three main sources used to obtain protein, which include animal sources, vegetables sources and dairy sources. A recognised by Bearden (2006), protein sources include the following:
animal protein sources: beef, game, lamb, pork, poultry, fowl, fish, eggs
vegetable protein sources: grains, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds
dairy protein sources: cheese, milk, yogurt

Due to the fact that meat is such a rich source of protein, it is important that those following a vegetarian diet or who consume very little meat are able to gain sufficient amounts of protein required for health from alternative sources. A simple way to add extra protein to salads is to simply sprinkle some nuts or seeds, or add mixed beans.
Organic Protein Sources

While the media would like us to believe that the only way to be healthy is to follow whichever celebrity's fad diet and spend a fortune on special foods, this is simply not the case. Organic sources of protein do not have to cause one's shopping bill to sky-rocket. As identified by Bearden (2006), simple ways to include more organic protein in the diet include the following:

adding a small piece of organic meat in one dish
including organic eggs in a meal
using some organic vegetables a few times a week

Protein is an essential part of any balanced diet, and it can be sourced from animal, vegetable or dairy produce. The body requires protein for healthy growth, repair and to create antibodies

Why the Body Requires Fibre - Different Fibre Sources

 As anyone who has suffered from episodes of constipation will know, dietary fibre is a very important part of maintaining a healthy body and remaining regular. However, these days more refined foods are being consumed than ever before, which have fibre removed during processing, making it likely that many are not getting sufficient fibre in their diet.
Health Benefits of Fibre Consumption

Unlike vitamins and minerals, fibre is not a nutrient, but a part of plant food which the body is unable to digest. In The Essential Guide to Vitamins, Minerals and Herbal Supplements, Brewer (2010) highlights key health benefits and healing properties associated with fibre, to include the following:
Aids digestion/absorption of other foods
Helps stomach, upper intestines function
Reduces rate blood sugar levels rise after meals
Encourages muscular contractions, propels digested food forwards
Absorbs water, bacteria, toxins
Bulks up faeces
Hastens stool excretion
Relieves irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) diarrhoea/constipation
Reduces flatulence
Improves cholesterol levels
Relieves some ulcerative colitis symptoms
Helps ease menopausal symptoms

In 1,001 Home Health Remedies, Browne et al. (2007) identify further health benefits related to fibre, as follows:
Reduces breast tenderness
Relieves hemorrhoid symptoms and pain
May help reduce peptic ulcers
Helps premenstrual symptoms – removes excess oestrogen
Soluble Fibre and Insoluble Fibre

There are two main forms of fibre found in plant foods, which include soluble fibre and insoluble fibre. In Nutrition in Essence, Bearden (2006) explains that while soluble fibre helps keep blood sugar levels stable, lowers cholesterol levels and makes one feel fuller, insoluble fibre keeps stools moving and reduces the build-up of toxins in the large intestine.

It is relatively easy to increase fibre intake, through simply making a few adjustments, such as the following:
Switch from white bread to wholemeal bread
Change from eating sugary cereal to muesli, All-Bran or Branflakes
Increase intake of legumes, vegetables, fruits
Snack on nuts, seeds, fruit, rather than sugary snacks
Switch to brown rice, wholemeal pasta
Avoid ready-meals as much as possible
Eat high fibre fruits for dessert

For those who regularly struggle to eat a healthy balanced diet, it may be worth considering taking a fibre supplement. Fibre supplements may be prescribed by the family doctor or purchased from either health food stores or health care pharmacies.

Papaya Nutrition

Papaya is the pear shaped fruit of the plant Carica papaya. The papaya fruit is regarded as one of the most nutritious fruits due to its high vitamin and mineral content. Discover some of the interesting papaya nutrition facts with this article.

Papaya Health Benefits
Know about numerous papaya health benefits which you can make use of and add healthy years to your life. This fruit is not only delicious, but it is also attributed as a power house of nutrients...
Everyone is well aware of the fruit papaya and I guess, I need not give you the description of how does it look like, taste and where it is found. However, you may not know that papaya was attributed by the name "The Fruit of the Angels", by Christopher Columbus [an Italian navigator who discovered the New World in the service of Spain while looking for a route to China (1451-1506)]. Before we head on for the papaya health benefits, here is a brief insight on the nutritive value of the fruit, per 100g. Papaya contains 56 mg of vitamin C and 20 mg of calcium. Carbohydrates in the fruit is of the quantity 10 g and vitamin A, 1750 I.U. 16 mg of phosphorus is present in papaya and 470 mg of potassium. Apart from containing vitamin E and K, papaya has a calorific value of 39. Now, let's study about the many papaya health benefits that you can avail.

Papaya enzyme health benefits come from papain and chymonpapain, the two very important enzymes of the fruit. These enzymes aid in the digestion of protein in the body. Out of the two, papain is the most abundant and most active. One important fact to take a note of is that, these two enzymes gradually vanish as the fruit ripens. So, in order to avail the benefits, pick your fruit when it is still green. Apart from aiding to the digestion process, other papaya enzyme benefits include treating edemas, inflammation and wounds. The antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene also aid to reducing any inflammatory symptoms. Thus, people with asthma, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis would find great relief with an increase in the consumption of this fruit. The enzymes, papain and chymonpapain, also prevent cornea scar deformation and help in treating insect stings.

Talking about papaya seeds health benefits, they include protection against E. coli, Salmonella and Staph infections and certain kidney diseases. Papaya seeds extract are also known to get rid of intestinal parasites and they also help in detoxifying the liver.

Treating constipation is one of the well known papaya fruit health benefits. Infections of the colon can be addressed by drinking papaya juice and ripened form of the fruit may help prevent cancer in organs and glands with epithelial tissue. Other papaya health benefits include managing nausea including morning sickness and motion sickness and producing a tonic effect in the stomach and intestines. Papaya's content of folate, vitamin C, beta-carotene and vitamin E are also associated with reduced risks of colon cancer.

Lowering cholesterol level and preventing the development of atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease are also among the well known papaya health benefits. Apart from these, papaya's richness in vitamin A, has earned it the reputation to be an ideal home remedy for lung protection. People who are in a risk of lung cancer should consider adding this fruit to their daily diet.

Boosting the immune system is yet another one among the other papaya benefits. Richness of vitamin C and vitamin A in the fruit, strengthens the immune system and keeps one from illnesses and recurrent infections like cold and flu and like that of the ear.

Macular Degeneration (eye disease caused by degeneration of the cells of the macula lutea and results in blurred vision; can cause blindness) is an age-related illness and is the primary cause of vision loss in older adults. According to researches, adding papaya to the diet can provide a great deal of benefit in reducing the risk of developing this eye disease. Read more on pampering the papaya

To conclude this piece of information on papaya health benefits, according to different surveys, people who took papaya along with green tea, were found less prone to develop prostate cancer than others. Thus, with so many benefits in store, a healthy diet must comprise of this 'wonder fruit' as one of its key ingredients!

Why Wine is Good For You!

 If a vinter were to tell you, in one of his advertisements, that you ought to drink wine because it is the best of all tranquilizers—one product of nature that relaxes you gently with no harm to your system—he would be promptly taken to task by the United States Government, which has the power to revoke his license and put him out of business. There is a certain federal regulation, ambiguous in its language but backed up by some unambiguous bureaucratic rulings, that effectively prevents him from advertising this important truth.

It is high time that someone came forth with that best of all reasons (there are plenty of others!) why tension-tormented America should include wine in its daily diet! Before anyone asks "Aren't beer, whiskey and gin the same as wine?" and "Are you advocating that we all become alcoholics?" lets address both questions.

Wine is essentially a natural product; malt and distilled beverages are manufactured. The grape is the only fruit that will preserve itself naturally, without anything being added or taken away. This is because it contains fermentable sugars and because the dust like "bloom" on its skin contains natural yeasts that can ferment those sugars into alcohol. If we crush a handful of grapes and leave the juice in a cup, it will turn into wine.

There is a great deal more in wine than mere alcohol. It has been medically substantiated that wines, depending on their type, contain not only fruit sugars valuable in the human diet, but in addition are the only common alcoholic beverages containing significant quantities of the B vitamins, plus all of the thirteen mineral elements recognized as essential to maintain animal and human life. They also have the ability to improve appetite and promote digestion. A glass of Malbec a day can actually improve your health.

It is their non-alcoholic components, not found in spirituous beverages that make wines behave differently in the human body. Somehow, in ways not yet fully understood by medical researchers, the organic acids, esters, and nitrogen-bearing compounds in wines slow down the rate at which the alcohol in wines enters your blood stream. The slow rate of absorption is important. Your blood-alcohol level, when you drink wine, reaches a plateau instead of a peak; the alcohol circulates at low levels through your body, where it lulls and helps to relax your jumpy nerve centers; you feel a pleasant glow. The pleasant feeling from wine lasts longer than that from other drinks. Alcohol from the others gets into your blood more quickly; its effects are more sudden and more pronounced.

In other words, don't drink wine for a "kick," because if it's a kick you want, you will get it fastest and hardest from vodka. Wine's alcoholic effect is more gradual. If you haven't already discovered for yourself the relaxing quality of a fine glass of Petite Sirah, ask a few of your friends if wine doesn't make them sleepy more readily than a stronger drink does.

Some noted medical authorities have said that wine could well supplant 90% of the drugs used to induce sleep. There is also reason to wonder whether Americans would be gulping well over 65,000,000 aspirin tablets every twenty-four hours to reduce pain if more people used wine.

11 Good Reasons Why Coffee Grounds are Worth Keeping

 After brewing coffee, coffee grounds are often tossed into the trash bin. Some people regard the group of squeezed coffee beans as worthless items. If they only knew the alternative uses for coffee grounds, they would probably store the used beans in their cupboards.

Coffee grounds have many other uses aside from producing coffee. They can be used for gardening, repelling insects, and even as pet grooming products. Just by using these supposed waste products, the need to buy some household products can be instantly eliminated. Best of all, the use of coffee grounds is environment-friendly. You better think twice if you plan to throw away your next batch of coffee grounds. Here are 11 of the best reasons why used coffee grounds are worth keeping:

Compost Material – Coffee grounds fit the standards set by gardeners for compost materials. The grounds, when mixed with soil, release nutrients that make the ground richer and more acidic. Plants that flourish in acidic soil will be healthier since they can get the needed nourishment from the ground. If you have a good supply of coffee grounds, just spread them evenly in your garden. Your plants will reward you by producing robust blooms.
Pet Grooming Solution – Mix coffee ground extract with some water and the result is a nice grooming solution for pets. After a few rubs, the solution softens your pet’s fur, giving it a nice sheen. Some people even claim that the solution keeps fleas and other parasites off your pet, though it still needs testing for it to be considered a fact.

Fridge Deodorizer – Storing different types of food inside the fridge can produce a nasty mixture of odors. Remove those pungent smells with a bowl filled with coffee grounds. Place the bowl inside your fridge and your coffee ground deodorizer will gradually absorb all unwanted scents. If your fridge is packed with stored food, just add more grounds and a few drops of vanilla to your deodorizer so that it can absorb more odors.
No Place for Pet Litter – You can keep your pet from defecating in your garden if you spread a mixture of coffee grounds and orange peels around the area. Your pets will find the scent of the mixture too exotic for their defecating standards.
Skin Exfoliant – Rubbing your skin with coffee ground extract seems silly but it is actually a good idea. The extract removes dead skin cells, which results in better-looking skin. It can save you hundreds of dollars since this simple product can practically replacesseveral pricey sessions with your dermatologist.
Shoe Deodorizer – Active people and smelly feet are often associated with each other. Break away from the norm by placing used coffee grounds in your shoes. It will not relieve you of foul-smelling feet, but it will certainly get rid of the evidence. Now, if you want to truly remove foot odor, you can always wash your feet with water and coffee ground extract.
Hair Shine Solution – Let’s face it, everyone wants to have shiny and bouncy hair. Some people spend significant amounts of cash just to make their hair look better. You can look no further than your supply of used coffee grounds to give you softer and shinier hair. Just wash your hair with the coffee byproduct and rinse. You will soon sport your favorite celebrity hairstyle after a few strokes.

Ant Repellent – Ants can be annoying, especially if they manage to make their way to your bath towel or clothes. You can avoid these tiny pests by rubbing coffee grounds on your closet. For some reason, ants dislike the scent and the properties of coffee ground extract.
Fireplace Dust Regulator – Fireplace dust is always a big obstacle for someone who cleans the fireplace. Large dust formations can sting your eyes and irritate your sinuses. They can also make the surrounding areas dirty. To properly regulate dust, you can toss a handful of wet coffee grounds in your fireplace after operation. The wet grounds will hold the dust in place, lessening the appearance of dust clouds when cleaning the fireplace.

Coloring Ingredient – If you combine coffee ground extract with hot water, you can create brown dye for fabrics, art works and other applications. You can also mix the extract with henna to produce brown-colored henna tattoos.
Scratch Remover – Coffee ground extract can erase scratches after several forceful scrubs. Its thick slippery base, when coupled with a rug, topples the foundations of most scratches. The scratches eventually fade in the process.

You can use coffee grounds as unconventional product substitutes for many household activities. With their wide variety of uses, you can say that they’re even more useful than their ungrounded counterparts.

Please see references:

One of the five spices that make up curry powder, turmeric (also called yellow ginger and curcumin) is often used to add a deep yellow color to dishes. It is more than a coloring agent though since it imparts a distinct peppery flavor of its own. Unpeeled, it looks like a small ginger. Peeled, the flesh is a deep yellow (almost orange) in color. Fresh turmeric is prepared in much the same way as ginger. It is peeled then ground (traditionally, with a mortar and pestle) before it is added to food.

Turmeric is cultivated primarily in Bengal, China, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Java. Peru, Australia and the West Indies, and is used extensively in Asian and Middle Eastern cooking. As a herbal medicine, it is said to be a potent yet safe anti-inflammatory, an effective treatment for inflammatory bowel disease, a relief for rheumatoid arthritis, a help for cystic fibrosis sufferers, and an inhibitor of cancer cell growth and metastases.

While some quarters admit that turmeric is “an interesting home remedy with a lot of promise,” others warn that there is “little reliable evidence to support the use of turmeric for any health condition because few clinical trials have been conducted.”

Just last year, however, a study conducted by researchers at the Medical College of Georgia yielded more than promising results. They found out that curcumin significantly decreases the size of a blood clot which led them to believe that turmeric might lower chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease and may even reduce the size of a hemorrhagic stroke.

Sweet Potatoes: The Anti-Aging Food

Sweet Potato has Anti-aging
Sweet potatoes exert powerful anti-aging effects and also check the formation of wrinkles successfully. 

The sweet potato is actually not a member of the potato family. There are about 400 varieties of the sweet potato, some are round and shaped like potatoes, while others are long and have tapering ends.

This root vegetable has been touted as the next anti-aging solution, that fights wrinkle formation and keeps the skin soft, supple and youthful.
Sweet Potato and Anti-Aging

The sweet potato contains unique root storage proteins. These proteins exercise significant anti-aging and anti-oxidant effects. They are potent free radical scavengers that avert damage to the DNA of the cells and hence, prevent a host of diseases and also decelerate aging.
Laboratory assessments state that these proteins show 1/3rd the anti-oxidant activity of glutathione, one of the body’s most important anti-oxidants.

These proteins, along with a generous dose of vitamin C and carotenes, have a highly beneficial effect on the skin. They boost the body’s anti-oxidant levels, which in turn halts the onslaught of aging.

These proteins check the formation of wrinkles, improve the skin’s texture and prevent sagging. Vitamin C and carotenes nourish the skin and keep it looking fresh and radiant.
Health Benefits Offered by the Sweet Potato

Sweet potatoes supply loads of carotenes. Characteristically, the darker the sweet potato, the larger is the concentration of the carotenes in them.

In addition, the root provides vitamin C, biotin, copper, vitamin B6 and B2 and dietary fiber.

Unlike other starchy foods, sweet potatoes have been classified as anti-diabetic food. Research says that sweet potatoes stabilize blood glucose levels and enhances the response to insulin.
Quick Serve Ideas for Sweet Potato

While buying sweet potatoes, select those which are firm. Stay away from those which are wilted, leathery or discolored.

Also, darker the color of the root, higher is the concentration of the anti-oxidants.
Slice a few sweet potatoes thickly. Brush the slices with olive oil. Add any favorite seasoning: pepper, oregano, basil, etc. and bake until they turn golden brown and crispy. This makes a wonderful mid evening snack.
Sweet potatoes can be added to sandwiches. Boil sweet potatoes. Mash them. Add salt and pepper. Spread peanut butter over whole wheat bread, fill in the mashed sweet potatoes and grill for 10 minutes.
Cubed sweet potatoes could be added to any vegetable stir fry.

100 grams of sweet potato provides 2 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and loads of vitamin C and carotenes. Adding this root vegetable to the daily menu is definitely recommended.

Facts about Pi-Water

•We lose about 2-3 liters of Living Water everyday? Our Body Consists of 70% water. It cannot survive without water.
•Not all treated water are the same. Our body needs “ Good “ water to clear the toxic waste from different parts of the body and takes it to the liver and kidneys for disposal.

Dr. Shoji Yamashita, the Pi water researcher-developer.

In Japan, Dr. Shoji Yamashita of the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Nagoya, doing research on the physiology of florigen, the plant hormone believed to be responsible in turning buds into flowers, discovered that when a small amount of ferrous ferric (Fe2Fe3) salt were sprayed on the bud, the living water inside became excited creating a dramatic increase on its energy state, thereby playing an important role in flower differentiation of buds. He referred to this excited state of water as “Pi”. Since then, 30 years of developmental studies, research and experiments have gone into Pi water to understand why and how it works, from agriculture, to industrial and to home use. ACM Co., Ltd of Japan spearheaded its development into its medicinal value, sponsoring research and clinical studies with various universities in Japan and in the USA.

What we in the medical profession neglect is the fact that Nature herself has built man with the basic foundation for natural healing, My six (6) year-stint with ACM and Ultra Medix redirected my views with this basic fact, that the best way to achieve total health is through the natural way of healing.

In behalf of all the medical consultants of ACM and Ultra Medix, I take pleasure to welcome you to the Ultra Medix family.

God is the ultimate source of life. He made the herbs for the healing of the nations. The body can heal itself, if homeostasis is maintained and the necessary basic needs such as oxygen, water and food are supplied. However, these basic needs are adulterated with pollutants and toxins. Instead of sustaining and prolonging life, they hasten its destruction, thereby shortening life and ending it that soon. But through the complete detoxification program of ULTRA PI GLOBAL and ULTRA MEDIX, Inc., health is restored and peace and happiness are attained.

The Ultra Medix family is united to attain our mission and vision, A synergy of wellness and wealth!

We urge all those who love life to join us in this endeavor! Welcome!

Food, food supplements and medicines taken into our body has to be broken down into tiny absorbable particles with the aid of enzymes and water undergoing various physical and chemical reactions to be assimilated into our body streams. Once these absorbable nutrients reach the cells, they have to pass through the very tiny pores of the cell membrane.

It is therefore very important to take into account the kind of medium that carries these nutrients (or the medicines for that mater) into the cells. The cells need to be fed well in order to achieve its body functions as well as the need to eliminate the waste matters, toxins and free radicals that accumulate inside the cell membrane.

I have not seen any other water in the market today that can maximize the above cellular function than Pi Water. Only Pi water is made up of tiny molecular clusters that readily passes through the cell membrane bringing in nutrients into the cells and flushing out waste materials out of the cells. Now, Pi water is greatly innovated by Ultra Pi Global, Inc. and UltraMedix, Inc. founder, Dr. Helen K. Lim, into DR. , the highest form of Pi Water.

It is, therefore, with great pleasure to welcome you all to UltraMedix, Inc. to help disseminate this great news about the medicinal effects of the highly oxygenated Dr. Pi Water.

Educated in the Jesuit-run Ateneo de Manila University, Mr. Tumpalan graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies Major in Business Management. He possesses a unique mix of expertise in the fields of operations, business management, and information technology, which he has acquired over the years from his connections with various local and foreign companies. He gained extensive knowledge and experience in operations, specifically in freight forwarding, warehousing and shipping, by being the General Manager of LBC International for five (5) years.

Mr. Soc Tumpalan's business management skills particularly in the areas of product planning and control, specializing in footwear and apparel, were gained through hard work, experience and formal training abroad. He has noteworthy skills in information technology, especially in strategic IT.


Rhodora Tactacan-Tumpalan, more popularly known as Doyee, is a woman whose entrepreneurial accomplishments span years in manufacturing, retail & direct marketing, and multi-level marketing.

She assumed the helm of their family owned business, the D. Tactacan Shoe Factory at the age of 19, and from then on, set to change the creative direction of the company as its General Manager. Doyee trained abroad under the Italian masters and brought back to the Philippines global innovations in technology.

In 2002, she, together with husband Soc, put up their own company, First Quadrant Philippines, Inc. (FQPI). Hailed as the country’s first all Filipino multi-level marketing company, FQPI’s main objective was to resuscitate the struggling Marikina Shoe industry by selling high quality locally made shoes and that was exactly what she accomplished by selling more than 2 million pairs to close to 1 million dealers worldwide.

In 2005, Doyee once again set out to surpass her own achievements by setting up another trendsetter in multi-level marketing, First Vita Plus Marketing Corporation. With First Vita Plus dalandan as her pioneer product, Doyee’s objective was to promote all Filipino herbs and to come up with highly innovative products that have never before seen in the nutraceutical and herbal markets. Through the help of researchers and scientists, First Vita Plus became the Philippines’ first ever vitamin in a drink that combines for the very first time five power herbs. (Please refer to our product section for a more detailed description of our products and their benefits.) Since then, Doyee’s business has grown to include a variety of other herbal products, that fall under Herbal Blessings, a beauty line that boasts of the finest and purest plant and fruit extracts.

Doyee Tumpalan has carved a solid name in direct and multi level marketing because of the ability to transform her vision into business ideas that are creative and unique. Her dealers are consistently growing in number and her line of products getting better, and reaching out to more Filipinos who want to make a difference just like her.

First Vita Corporate Values 

FIRST VITA PLUS sees a dynamic new market taking its rightful place in the global market, where the Filipino nutraceutical industry is on equal footing with the world’s best natural health products; where Filipino ingenuity will be showcased through our company and through our people.

'Buy Global Pinoy' is our call for Filipino recognition and our unequivocal support for Filipino organic products. Now is the time to fully maximize the wealth of our herbal market.

FIRST VITA PLUS is on a mission to open the doors of opportunity for all --breaking the barriers of race, gender, social class, education, religion, profession and even disability. We want success to be reachable, attainable and possible.

Strength, stability and sustainability best represent the values that FIRST VITA PLUS stands for. We put a high premium on integrity and loyalty as keys to continued market leadership and value the efforts that dealers, suppliers and consumers contribute to our success.

Proudly, we are a global pinoy company working for the global recognition of our products and our people.
Corporate History

FQPI has been in the forefront of innovation and proudly, we have proven that believing in the Filipino ingenuity yields productive and profitable results leading to changed lives.

It is this same faith that brought us First Vita Plus and it is the very foundation on which FQPI was built.

In the past, FQPI has provided you with necessity, convenience and luxury in the vast array of our consumer products. Through our efforts, the Marikina shoe industry was revitalized and to this day, our world-class products are showcased here and abroad.

Having realized and surpassed our initial goals, we have decided that now is the best time to focus on yet another fundamental matter that deserves to be given greater importance and that is your health, wellness and well-being.

Traditionally, we think of health in terms of medicines, particularly disease prevention and cure. Wellness and well-being are not given as much priority because of practical considerations such as custom, convenience and cost. There are those who only think of health in times of sickness, who are discouraged by the high cost of medicines and who find it too time and effort-consuming to drink dietary supplements.

Given these realities, FQPI thought of introducing another FIRST, this time in the nutraceutical industry.

Thus, First Vita Plus.

After many months of intensive medical research and scientific study, our team of experts came up with a unique product that combines, for the very first time, 5 power herbs from selected premium leaves of Moringa oleifera, Corchorus olitorius, Capsicum frutescens, Amaranthus spinosus and Ipomoea batatas.

First Vita Plus will make your health a priority and will bring you opportunity. First Vita Plus is packed to meet your daily requirements of vitamins, minerals, micronutrients, anti-oxidants an immunity enhancing phytochemicals.

First Vita Plus is your vitamin-in-a-drink. It is easy to carry, quick to consume and great to taste.

Best of all, it is 100% all Filipino. From its refreshing dalandan taste, to its organic components, First Vita Plus is the perfect natural health drink!

And consistent with FQPI’s values, First Vita Plus represents our advocacy to promote traditional and alternative medicine. We are confident that this kind of awareness will generate livelihood among our farmers and will further inspire scientists to explore the untapped healing potentials of Philippine herbs.

Equally significant, this will usher in a new lifestyle that clearly says: your health is important.
First Vita Plus will make your health a priority and will bring you opportunity.
Join us in a journey of better and healthier opportunities, through First Vita Plus!
