The Benefits of Iodine

Iodine is one of the most important minerals required by the body for healthy cellular and complete metabolic function. Breast tissue, the uterus, the ovaries, the thyroid, the brain and the prostate depend on iodine. But typical intake levels for most people are not optimal.
They need Tri-Iodine®.

Why Increase Iodine Intake?
• Healthy Metabolism and Weight Management Support†
• Increased Energy
• Improved Libido
• Breast Health
• Prostate Health
• Detoxification
• Increased Immune Function*
Tri-Iodine provides the three beneficial forms of iodine you need most.

Tri-Iodine contains three beneficial forms of iodine to nourish multiple body systems. Three forms are included because different tissues in the body prefer different forms. For example, your thyroid tissue absorbs iodine best as potassium iodide, while breast tissue takes up iodine in the
form of molecular iodine. Additionally, there is evidence that using sodium iodide enhances absorption of the other forms.

No Need for Cannabinoids when you have Copaiba

Copaiba Oil is unique because it reacts with our endocannabinoid system, which helps our body manage anxiety, stress and inflammation.
“Beta-caryophyllene (BCP) is a sesquiterpene compound found in hundreds of different plant species, and it has recently been recognized for its unique ability to interact with CB2 but not CB1 receptors.3 Thus the alleged benefits of CBD or THC can be obtained without the psychoactive effects by using a product containing BCP. doTERRA’s new Copaiba essential oil has the highest BCP content of any oil, around 55% as confirmed by GC/MS analysis of doTERRA’s own Copaiba oil.”

Purslane Weed or Healthy Plant?

It’s Not a Weed! It’s an Unrecognized, Health-Boosting Wonder Plant!

Purslane, which most people take for a common weed, is actually a health-boosting food that many people grow for consumption. Purslane or Portulaca oleracea is a beautiful plant with yellow flowers. It originates from India and Persia, but has since spread all over the world.

This plant is very versatile in that it can grow almost everywhere. It is packed full of Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, all sorts of B vitamins, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium, and copper, as well as betalain pigments and carotenoids.

Here are some of the health benefits associated with consuming this plant.

Heart Health
Both potassium and Omega-3 fatty acids are known to promote heart health. Potassium works to lower blood pressure and Omega-3 fatty acids help to reduce the amount of bad cholesterol in the body. These two components of purslane are what make it so great for the heart.

Weight Loss
Being low in calories, but packed with fiber makes purslane perfect for those who want to shed some extra pounds. This plant is also nutrient-rich which means that people who consume it will feel full without all those extra calories.
Gastrointestinal Health.

In traditional Chinese medicine, purslane is used to treat gastrointestinal problems from diarrhea to dysentery. This plant’s ability to treat these issues most likely comes from several organic compounds found in the plant, like dopamine, malic acid, citric acid, alanine, and glucose.

Bone Strength
The calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese in purslane are all necessary elements to protect and sustain bone health. Daily consumption of this “weed” may even prevent osteoporosis.

Improved Circulation
As previously stated, purslane is full of iron and copper. These twoelements are essential for a healthy circulatory system. A healthy circulatory system contributes to improved overall body health because more blood is getting to where it needs to be.

The next time you see purslane outside, take the time to pick it and give it a try. Adding it to your diet may be just what you need to live a long and healthy life!

I have heard it tastes really good!
Take a look!

Berries – Very Berry Good

By doTERRA Science Blog

With complex names such as quercetin, galangin, and catechin, flavonoids are known more for providing color to our fruits and vegetables than the benefits they impart, but new research is beginning to uncover just how important those phytonutrients are to overall health.

In a recently published meta-analysis, it was found that there is strong evidence that consuming flavonoid-rich foods may be correlated with increased lifespan and decreased risk of death from cardiovascular disease.1 The meta-analysis, examining ten peer-reviewed studies from American and European journals, found that dietary consumption of 200 mg or more of flavonoids per day could reduce the risk of all-cause mortality in adults 18% and cardiovascular disease up to 20%. These findings are consistent with other recent research that has found that diets rich in flavonoids may significantly reduce the risk of diabetes and several forms of cancer.2,3 While further research is necessary to truly understand the potential effects of flavonoid consumption, it is believed that these properties are likely due to their antioxidant and various cardioprotective benefits.

Flavonoids are found in high concentrations in various whole foods and vegetables, especially those with strong bright and dark pigmentation. Don’t forget to include blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and various other flavonoid-rich foods in your daily diet for optimal health.
