When asked why losing weight is difficult, most people will often agree that it’s because they have a slow metabolism.
A slow metabolism means that your body wants to conserve as much energy or fat as possible rather than burn it all immediately for energy.
If you were to cut down on calories, you still would not lose weight. You would not lose weight because your body would slow your metabolism, so fat/energy can be conserved (a survival mechanism).
The best way to lose weight is to speed up your metabolism. A faster metabolism will force your body into a temporary state of ketosis (fat-burning).
Maintaining ketosis can easily be achieved with a ketogenic diet but speeding up your metabolism largely depends on your insulin level.
If you have more insulin, then you will have a slower metabolism. Insulin is a hormone that lowers your blood sugar by getting your body to burn glucose for energy rather than fat – therefore, fat ends up staying in your body, and you gain weight.
You need to get your insulin levels down (speed up your metabolism) before you start a diet, or else you’ll gain more weight!
If you are a diabetic or prediabetic then you already know that you have a high insulin level due to insulin resistance. But what you don't know is that insulin resistance is a metabolic problem!
The herb we recommend on page 35 (highlighted under – Herbs for Weight Loss) contains a unique compound that mimics the effect of insulin. This improves your insulin sensitivity and glucose absorption and speeds up your metabolism. (7)
In 2017, the national library of Medicine published an article after testing just 3 grams of this herb (over 16 weeks) on people with metabolic syndrome (the condition which leads to weight gain and causes insulin resistance). They found significant changes in metabolic function.
After using this herb, people with metabolic syndrome saw an improvement of up to 34.5%. Those using a placebo only saw a 5.2% change. (9)
We've prepared a delicious keto porridge recipe containing this herb that has the correct dosage for your body and will help lower your blood sugar (fasting and after-meal) to help you lose some weight!
If you want an excellent remedy with virtually no side effects, check out page 21 (our first herb under blood pressure).
In 2015, a study was conducted on 46 patients with high blood pressure. The study saw significant blood pressure lowering effects in both systolic (pressure of heart contractions) and diastolic (pressure of heart relaxations) by an average of 7.58 mmHg and 3.53 mmHg, respectively. (2)
Doctors found this tea worked as effectively as the blood pressure medication Captopril!
This herbal tea has also been found to have a slight diuretic effect, meaning it rids excess sodium from your body without reducing potassium (which is very important when lowering blood pressure).
In a different study on 65 people, given either the herbal tea or a placebo, it was found that this tea significantly reduced systolic blood pressure compared to the placebo group.
After evaluating many more independent studies, researchers concluded that the randomized trials showed a significant lowering effect in systolic and diastolic with no side effects!
One of the main side effects of blood pressure medication is something doctors call drug-induced nutrient depletion. When you take these drugs, you usually end up with a calcium deficiency, a potassium deficiency, and a magnesium deficiency. (1)
What’s shocking is that all 3 of these minerals are part of your electrolytes, meaning that these deficiencies contribute to having high blood pressure!
Sadly, the side effect ends up causing the actual problem that you’re trying to treat. Learn what this remarkable herb is on page 21 to end your high blood pressure for good!
More than 60% of people with high blood pressure also have high cholesterol. These conditions are comorbidities that threaten your heart health.
When bad cholesterol (LDL) increases, it builds up in your blood vessels, essentially clogging your arteries and forcing the heart to pump blood harder (increasing blood pressure).
Fortunately, we've discovered a fruit native to India and the Middle East that's readily available online and can be used to combat these effects. It's been used in Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years and can help keep your heart health in check by managing your cholesterol!
In a pilot study to evaluate the effect of this herb on patients with dyslipidemia (abnormally high levels of LDL – bad cholesterol), researchers found a significant reduction in total cholesterol and triglycerides (blood fats) as well as an increase in HDL (good cholesterol).
Why do we need HDL? Our body uses it to remove LDL (bad cholesterol) from blood vessels and transport that cholesterol to the liver.
In 2019, researchers found even more evidence supporting this unique remedy's benefits. This time they conducted a study on 98 dyslipidemic patients. (3)
Doctors divided the patients into herb and placebo groups. 500 mg of the herb or a matching placebo was administered twice daily for 12 weeks.
After 12 weeks, the herb again lowered total cholesterol, triglyceride, LDL, and VLDL cholesterol compared to the placebo group.
Even we were amazed after comparing this herb to approximately 3100 other foods and found that this plant was the most antioxidant-dense, at 301.14 mmol/100g. Antioxidants can prevent your cells from aging, and dietary habits and aging often cause high cholesterol.
Meaning that if you add this herb to your diet, you will be able to solve both problems and ultimately have the best heart health! Find this herb on page 29 (highlighted under - herbs for lowering cholesterol).
If you have arthritis, whether it’s Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, or Gout, you need to start using this remedy immediately!
This herbal remedy can help to relieve arthritis or joint pain, or an achy muscle just a few minutes after application (as reported by severe patients!).
The plant contains various compounds that will reduce inflammation and the pain you experience. Some people even compare the sensation to that of the heat gels you would normally apply. All you have to do is break off a few leaves and apply them to the arthritis-affected area.
What makes this plant so unique is that its surface contains millions of tiny hypodermic needles that, on contact, inject chemicals such as formic acid, histamine, serotonin, acetylcholine, and many others.
When exposed to the plant, this unique combination of chemicals creates some anti-inflammatory effect that seems to be working.
Researchers are still unsure which one of those chemicals is so effective, but they know that the plant is safe and can continue being used as a home remedy.
In one study of 27 patients with osteoarthritic pain at the base of the thumb or index finger, the leaf of this plant was applied daily for one week to the painful area. Researchers compared the effect of this treatment with a placebo. (4)
After one week of treatment with the herbal remedy, researchers saw significant pain reduction compared to the placebo treatment. The herb was approximately ten times more effective at reducing pain!
Many patients who participated in these studies felt they could replace their anti-inflammatory medication with this herbal remedy. If you want to find out what this particular herb is, check out page 13 (highlighted under – Herbs for Arthritis and Joint Pain).
Over 635 billion dollars are spent on pain medication every year! The reason why it’s so high is that people have become addicted to the numb feeling it gives them.
Unfortunately, that can have a detrimental effect on your liver. Other side effects of synthetic painkillers include kidney damage, stomach problems, internal bleeding, fluid retention, and allergic reactions.
Most people report stomach and intestinal cramps after just a day or two and often don’t realize that it’s their painkillers causing the problem. Our herb may be the best natural solution that your body needs!
Researchers found that this plant has a particular chemical (salicin) that turns into salicylic acid (the active ingredient found in Aspirin). Fortunately, the herbal remedy has virtually no side effects or risks when taken in moderation!
To get started, all you have to do is apply a drop or two per day of this herb in its distilled tincture form or you can drink it as a tea.
In one recent study examining the effect of herbal medicine on adults with acute, sub-acute, or chronic lower back pain, researchers found this herb to be the most effective compared to a placebo. (5)
They also believe this herbal remedy can help eliminate migraines by lowering the blood pressure in the small blood vessels in the head, easing tension, and relieving the painful, debilitating symptoms.
Discover what this incredible herb is on page 18 (highlighted under – Herbs for Headaches).
Sunburns, acid reflux and dry or itchy skin are all common problems people face. What's terrifying is that these problems worsen as we age!
It's easy to turn to medications or store-bought gels as the first option for relief, but what if a natural solution could provide even better relief?
Aloe vera juice (not the gels) is a great way to naturally help ease these symptoms without worrying about harsh chemicals or preservatives.
This juice is an excellent drink for people with fragile stomachs, as it helps to soothe and reduce symptoms of heartburn or indigestion. It can also help regulate your body's hydration levels, meaning fewer headaches and less fatigue.
The best bit? It can also act as a skincare remedy, as it's known to help lock in moisture and soothe dry skin areas!
A recent clinical trial published in the International Journal showed that aloe vera juice is an effective moisturizer for dry skin. It helps reduce wrinkles and improve skin elasticity, something common drug treatments do not offer. (6)
And although pharmaceutical gels made from aloe vera can be convenient, they tend to be highly processed with strange chemicals and preservatives (like sodium benzoate) – much less natural than drinking pure aloe vera juice.
To make this change as simple as possible for you, we’ve formulated the perfect aloe vera juice recipe, found in our Cooking with Herbs for Health cookbook.
In our juice recipe, you’ll find the special ingredients we use to help aloe vera juice taste 10x better with higher long-term nutritional benefits.
We will also help to prevent immediate spoilage so that you can prepare your juice once, and drink it throughout the day without needing to make a new one!
So the next time you're dealing with a troublesome health issue or dry skin, try reaching for some aloe vera juice instead!
You'll be glad you did!
None of us want stressful lives, but unfortunately, the situations we put ourselves into or the amount of work and pressure we take on every day can trigger our stress hormones.
For most of us, the cause of our worry is known (for example, work), but there’s nothing we can do about it. This worry leaves us feeling helpless and often times angry, increasing stress.
Unfortunately, chronic stress can affect our sleep patterns, our food choices, our social behavior, and our ability to get things done.
Meaning that if you don’t find a healthy coping strategy, your stress will end up consuming more and more of your life!
We have spent three years trying to find the perfect herbal remedy that works with science and can easily fit into your lifestyle. We’re happy to say that we’ve finally found it!
It turns out that GABA, a neurotransmitter responsible for inhibiting or blocking excessive amounts of cortisol (stress hormone), is burnt out when we stress for long periods. Think of GABA as a stress neutralizer.
The tea we recommend can block the enzyme, which breaks downn GABA, therefore more GABA stays in your body. Increased GABA results in decreased stress and feelings of calmness.
In a 2004 study, researchers gave 18 healthy adults two separate single doses of 300 mg and 600 mg of the herb or a placebo. The results showed that the 600 mg dose alleviated the adverse mood effects of stress, with 70% saying that they felt calm with reduced alertness. (8)
