We are obsessed with diets: vegan, paleo, fat-fueled, high-protein, low-carb, etc. And there’s an ongoing debate as to which one is best.
The truth is that there isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” solution here. But there is, however, one universal principle: no matter what we choose to eat, it needs to end up in our cells in order to provide the benefits.

Humans have been using tools for millennia. But none have been as widely used or as constantly demanding on the finer tissues of the hands and fingers as the keyboard. Most office workers have been realizing the toll that it takes for many years now.

Inhaling the recycled breath of 200 other passengers is probably the only thing I don’t like about being on an airplane. Otherwise, sipping on a can of ginger ale with a book and marvelling over the formation of mountains en route a new adventure is right up my alley.

In the cloudy, rainy winter months, do you feel way more lethargic, chronically fatigued, unfocused, unmotivated and generally dull than you ever do during the rest of the year? And in spring/summer you feel like an entirely different person? Optimistic, energized, easily creatively inspired and just “ON” in general?

Whether it’s ringing phones, beeping alarm clocks, or kids jumping on the bed… there are so many ways that our mornings can be taken away from us.
When you start off your morning in a reactive state, you feel like you’re on your heels the entire day. You run from task to task, always feeling like you’re behind on life… rapidly reacting instead of calmly responding.
But if you carve out even a few minutes in the morning for yourself, you’ll be in a calmer, more grounded proactive state… and you will have control over your schedule, your mind, and your emotions for the entirety of the day.
Here are the five simple steps to cultivating the perfect morning routine. These tips work regardless of whether you have two minutes or two hours to yourself.

“Updating to a liposomal supplement is like making the switch from a rotary phone to the iPhone 6.”
To really grasp just how incredible liposomal technology is, it will help you to have some perspective on where it came from.
Approaching the middle of the 19th century, in the heart of France, two men began quietly experimenting with a medicine dropper, gelatin and an iron tray, to invent the first vitamin pill known to the modern world.
The year was 1834, and Joseph Dublanc, alongside François Mothès, had lit the fuse to set off an explosion of what would someday be a 60 billion dollar a year industry: nutritional supplements.
Almost 200 years have passed, and the majority of our vitamins are still being made using the same basic, primitive method. The simple idea was to mask the taste of the medicinal chemicals which doctors would give to their patients, in the form of an easy-to-swallow tablet.

Many people need to be getting between 65 and 90 mg of vitamin C a day, but some take as much as 1,000 to 2,000 mg a day in an effort to boost the immune system. Why is this? Interestingly, many supplemental products don’t contain the necessary additives to allow the vitamin to be properly absorbed in the body. The answer to properly metabolizing vitamin C (and other valuable nutrients) lies in solubility.

Many people are needlessly wasting money when purchasing vitamin C supplements. This is because their spending is inefficient. There are two reasons this happens. First, customers are not taking vitamin C with a carrier, which help molecules that allow certain nutrients to be absorbed into the body. The second reason is dietary. Vitamin C exists in a variety of foods.
