The Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

bragg Do you know that in my past, I had days where I experienced pretty bad acid reflux.  I would pop antacid pills like candy until I found a natural remedy to soothe the problem.  It was a 1 ounce shot of pure apple cider vinegar followed by a half a glass of warm water.  YUCK is right, but it worked for days.  That's right, one shot.  Later I found out that excessive sugar in my diet was my culprit, so I slowly crowded out those sweet cravings with healthier sweet snacks like dates, fresh fruits and homemade cookies made with dates, honey or applesauce.  I also added raw juices to my diet which included dark leafy greens like kale and collards.  The secret is masking the taste of the bitter greens so you can enjoy it. Check out additional health benefits of apple cider vinegar here.

NutriBlast & Multiple Sclerosis

nutriblastsCan NutriBlasts help with Multiple Sclerosis? A:  While everyone is unique, some may experience symptom relief when including more nutrient-dense foods into their diet. Dr. Terry Wahls provides an incredible example of the benefits of incorporating more produce into your daily routine. She discusses the specific nutrients that help nourish neurotransmitters and mitochondria. Fortunately, the NutriBullet can help you get more fruits and veggies into your diet; however, please consult your doctor before beginning a new dietary regimen. Dr. Wahls, who was diagnosed with MS, focuses on B vitamins, sulfur-containing vegetables, omega-3 fatty acids, iodine, and antioxidants. Based on these recommendations, here’s an appropriate NutriBlast recipe:
  •  50% kale
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup berries
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • seaweed powder (follow package directions)
Incorporate more leafy greens (kale, collards, spinach), sulfur-rich veggies (cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, asparagus), brightly colored fruits and veggies, seaweeds (for iodine), and omega-3 fatty acids (walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds) to help potentially relieve symptoms brought on by MS.
