Green coffee beans are rich in antioxidants, which reduce the damaging effects of free radicals in our body and take care of our overall health. A number of studies have confirmed that raw and unprocessed green coffee beans possess 100% pure Chlorogenic Acid (CGA), which is basically an ester of caffeic acid having strong antioxidant properties. It can put a check on the levels of glucose in our bloodstream and prevent our skin cells from getting dented.

- Boosts Metabolism:

The Chlorogenic Acid present in green coffee beans is also known as a metabolism booster. It increases the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) of our body to a great extent, which minimizes excessive release of glucose from the liver into blood. Due to the lack of glucose, our body starts burning the stored fat cells in order to fulfill its glucose requirement. Thus, pure green coffee beans raise our fat burning capability and eventually help us shed off excess weight.

- Helps Burn Extra Fat:

These beans also contain large amount of kelp. It is a certain type of seaweed loaded with essential vitamins and minerals. Therefore, it helps in maintaining the levels of nutrients in our body. In unison, it perks up the burning metabolism of our body so that we can burn out unwanted fat and calories fast.

- Suppresses Appetite:

Amazing Ampalaya

MANILA, Philippines —  Is ampalaya really effective in treating diabetes? What are its other medicinal properties?Lyn_l@yahoo.com
A: Yes, ampalaya or bitter melon (Mormodica charantia) has been proven to be effective in lowering the blood sugar of people with non-insulin dependent or type 2 diabetes, the type of diabetes that afflicts 90 to 95 percent of all diabetics.
A substantial number of scientific studies on the effect of ampalaya on blood glucose levels have already been undertaken. The most compelling of these is a 10-year trial, which was conducted by the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) that compared ampalaya leaves with the anti-diabetes drug glibenclamide. The results of the trial showed that the blood sugar lowering effect of a 100 milligram per kilo dose per day of ampalaya is comparable to 2.5 milligrams of the anti-diabetes drug Glibenclamide taken twice a day.
The sugar lowering effect of ampalaya applies to the leaves of the plant whether eaten as food or taken in the form of tablets, capsules and teas. There are no conclusive studies on the effect of the fruits and roots yet.
Ampalaya tablets, capsules and teas abound in supermarkets and drugstores, but diabetics who wish to benefit from ampalaya need not buy these products. They can cultivate the plant or buy it fresh and make their own preparation.
To prepare ampalaya extract, the Department of Health (DOH) suggests the following steps:
• Wash and finely chop ampalaya leaves
• Add six tablespoons of the chopped leaves in two glasses of water
• Boil the mixture for 15 minutes in an uncovered pot
• Cool down and strain
• Drink 1/3 cup of the solution three times a day.
Alternately, ampalaya tops can be steamed and eaten (1/2 cup twice a day).
Incidentally, the standard treatment for controlling type 2 diabetes includes diet, exercise and anti-diabetic medications. Hence, regular intake of ampalaya alone will not be able to control the blood sugar of most diabetics. People with the disease must still exercise and stick to a diabetic diet. Furthermore, for many diabetics, other medicines might have to be taken. In any case, regular intake of ampalaya will, at the least, lower the dose requirements for other anti-diabetic drugs.
The blood sugar lowering property of ampalaya is attributed to its content of momorcidin, a substance that is sometimes called plant insulin. This is also the substance that is responsible for the bitter taste of the plant’s leaves and fruits.
As to the other medicinal properties of ampalaya, books and articles on Philippine medicinal plants list several diseases where the plant is apparently beneficial. Reportedly, extracts from the leaves or roots shrink hemorrhoids. The leaf extract is supposedly also a good antitussive (i.e., anti-cough) and antipyretic (i.e., for fever). Likewise, it is purportedly, a good a purgative and anthelmintic (i.e., against roundworms). Moreover, it has some antimicrobial activity and can help heal infected wounds. Furthermore, it is reportedly effective in alleviating liver problems and in treating sterility in women.
Lately, some reports claim ampalaya has substance Q, which is of some value in the treatment of HIV/AIDS.
However, none of the above-enumerated supposed other medicinal uses of ampalaya have been scientifically proven. But this does not necessarily mean that the claims are not true. It’s just that the plant has not been studied extensively enough yet.

What Causes Cancer and How to Protect Or Help Yourself In The Fight Against Cancer



The main cause of cancer was officially discovered before 1923, and the person who made this discovery won the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1931. Very few people in the world know about it, but unfortunately, the truth is hidden from the public.
In 1931, the German scientist Otto Heinrich Warburg (1883 1970) received the Nobel Prize for finding the underlying cause of cancer. Dr. Warburg discovered that cancer is the result of anti-physiological way of life.
Anti-physiological way of eating (mostly food that is acidifying) and physical inactivity, the body creates an acidic environment that is poorly oxygenated.
Cellular acidity displaces the oxygen, andthe lack of oxygen in the cells creates an acidic environment.
Dr. Warburg said: “The lack of oxygen and acidity are two sides of the same coin: if someone has one, it also has the other”.
If you have high acidity levels, you will automatically have a lack of oxygen in the body; if you lack oxygen you will have acidified body. Acidic environment is an environment without oxygen.
“If you take away 35% of oxygen from a healthy cell, you can turn it into a cancer cell in two days,” claimed Dr. Warburg.
“All normal cells have an absolute need for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without it. This is a rule without exception. ”
Tumor tissues are acidic, while the healthy tissues are alkaline.
In his work “The metabolism of tumors,” Dr. Warburg showed that all cancerous forms fulfill two basic conditions: blood acidity and hypoxia (lack of oxygen).
He discovered that tumor cells are anaerobic (do not breathe in oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high concentrations of oxygen.
Tumor cells can only survive with the help of glucose and in an environment that does not have oxygen.
Therefore, cancer is nothing more than a defense mechanism that our cells use in order to survive in an acidic environment without oxygen.
Healthy cells live in alkaline environment full of oxygen, which allows its normal functioning. Tumor cells live in an acid environment poor of oxygen.
The acidity and alkalinity of the organism depends on the food.
After the process of digestion has finished, the food, depending on their nutritional profile, creates the conditions of acidity or alkalinity in the body.
In order to put it in simpler words, the alkalinity of the organism depends on what we eat.
An acidic or alkaline condition is measured on a PH scale from 0 to 14, where 7 is the neutral zone. From 0 to 7 is acidic, and 7 to 14 is alkaline.
In order to function successfully, our cells should have a slightly alkaline pH, slightly above 7.
In a healthy individual, the blood pH is between 7.40 and 7.45.
The blood constantly regulates itself to prevent inflammation in the metabolic acidity.
However, some foods are acidifying the blood andpollute the body.
Food that is acidifying the body
  • Refined sugar and all of its derivatives. It is the worst from all because it does not contain protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, only refined carbohydrates, which damage the pancreas. Its pH is 2.1 (very acidic).
  • Meat (all types)
  • Animal products -- milk, cheese, cream, yogurt, etc.
  • Refined salt
  • Refined flour and all its derivatives such as pasta, cakes, biscuits etc.
  • Bread
  • Margarine
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco
  • All industrially processed and canned foods, which contain preservatives, artificial colors, flavors, stabilizers, etc.
  • Antibiotics and generally all kinds of medications
Foods that are alkaline
  • All the raw vegetables. Even though some of them have a sour taste, they change when they are entered in the body and become alkaline.
  • For example, lemon inside the body has a very high degree of alkalinity. (Do not be fooled by its very sour taste).
  • They are very alkaline.
  • Whole grains: the only alkaline whole grain is millet. All the other plants are slightly sour, but for an ideal diet you need a certain amount of acidity so it means that it is healthy to consume some whole grains. All whole grains need to be cooked before consumption.
  • Honey has high alkalinity
  • Green plants contain chlorophyll, which has high alkalinity.
  • It is important for the production of oxygen. Be always well hydrated, and drink small sips of water throughout the day.
  • Exercises help maintain the alkalinity of the body because they provide oxygen. Sedentary lifestyle is destroying life.
Chemotherapy does not cure, it rather worsens the acidity of the body.Chemotherapy is acidifying the body to the extent that it must reach out to the alkaline reserve of the body, in order to neutralize the acidity of vital minerals (calcium, magnesium, potassium) embedded in bones, teeth, limbs, nails and hair.
For this reason, we see changes in people receiving chemotherapy, including hair loss.
Other medications can also worsen the acidity of the body, so they should be avoided as much as possible.
The correct ratio of pH
As pointed out, it is nearly impossible the cancer to appear in a person who eats healthy, drinks plenty of clean water and exercises.
To be properly fed, make sure your diet is 60% alkaline, and avoid products that are mostly acidic, such as soft drinks, sweets and fast food.
Do not abuse the salt and use it as little as possible.
If you are sick, it is ideal that your diet is 80% alkaline.
If you have cancer, the advice is to alkalize the body as much as possible. This can be achieved with the help of proper diet, exercise, avoiding stress and additional input of chlorophyll.
Expert opinions
“All the so-called natural deaths are nothing but the terminal point of high body acidity,” -- George W. Crile of Cleveland, one of the most renowned surgeons in the world.
“The innumerable names of the diseases are not important, but the fact that they all stem from the basic causes is -- too much acidity in the body.” -- Dr. Theodore A. Baroody, book “Alkalise or die” (“Alkaliseor Die”)
“Increased acidification of the body is the cause of degenerative diseases. If there is an imbalance and the body begins to store toxins and acidity to a greater extent, your body will start to experience diseases “- Dr. Robert O. Young.

The art of food supplement



Sunday, January 29, 2017
By CLAUDE ALBERT MOTOOMULL

PEOPLE in this generation are now very aggressive to accomplish assigned tasks. We sometimes forget to eat the exact meal requirement for us to stay healthy and avoid getting sick, we sometimes mostly rely on instant food. Correct meal nutrient is the most important thing to consider in attaining the exact diet and healthy living. But if we follow the correct food requirements needed to consume in our body, from different books or nutrient experts. We may ask ourselves, could I eat all this food in a day?

Here are some examples of foods we need to eat to stay healthy, as introduce by one popular food supplement nowadays:

Vitamin C – (1,300 mg equivalent to 18 oranges)
Zinc – 20 (mg equivalent to 10 whole chickens)
Iron – 20.5 (mg equivalent to 1 serving of chicken liver and beef)
Calcium – 1,300 mg (equivalent to 5 serving of yogurt)

If we all eat all the foods stated above I don’t think we can do that in a day. We might end up being bloated or just vomit. This time, aside from eating healthy and ensuring to prepare the right food, we also need a very reliable and tested food supplement that can help us provide more nutrients needed in our body to meet the daily requirement. Nowadays there are lot of popular brands of food supplement in our market that are being offered.

Here are some steps to know if you want to choose the high quality brand which will give you the exact and fit food supplement.
1. Research the internet if it’s legitimate.
2. Know if majority of the feedback of the products are positive.
3. The price is not that cheap, effective and good brands are sometimes costly but you can feel the effect.
4. The product must have lots of experience self-testimonies and feedbacks of its effect.
5. The agent of the products is not too aggressive on sales and explains the content in an understandable and simplified manner.

The good thing about food supplements in my own view is that it can offer nutrients you need, without consuming the food you don’t want to eat. Like my preferred vitamin, it offers better sleep quality, extra stamina, younger looking skin and regular bowel movement due to combined nutrients.

Sometimes we don’t really need the medicines to cure or ease the pain we feel. We just need the proper nutrients to nourish our body in order to cure the ailment and body problems we endure. Don’t forget that still nutritious food we eat is more important.

Food supplement is not substitute of food, it’s a support to provide us more nutrients in order to improve our immune system which result to environment pollution. One of my friend said, to stay healthy, it takes discipline in our food intake and choosing the right food supplement that fit our needs. It’s hard at first, but sooner it will become a habit. In my own opinion I still believe on the popular saying, “the greatest wealth is HEALTH”.
