Most people don’t realize that our intimate relationships impact our health and quality of life more than anything else possibly could.
There are certain chemical reactions that take place in our bodies that are triggered by the love in our life. These reactions are irreplaceable, and the distinct result of our interaction with our lover. Secretions of things like oxytocin, dopamine, and endorphins all play an amazing part in keeping us healthy, happy, and connected long-term.
For example, one study by UCLA scientists found that enhanced secretions of oxytocin were found to be protective against depression. Oxytocin is a neuromodulator that’s secreted in response to general affection, childbirth, and sexual interaction. Another study shows that dopamine (a reward-driven neurotransmitter) enhances blood flow, protects against renal failure, and helps fortify the circulatory system.
This leads me to the most important organ effected by love and affection, which is the human heart. Your heart actually has a larger magnetic and electromagnetic field than your brain! This means that you really do think and feel with your heart, and people who are closest to you will intrinsically impact your overall health the most.

It’s not often that a snack food comes along that meets my standards. We know now that the conventional snack foods of today (containing things like hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup) have all been linked to cancer, diabetes, and obesity.
Most people get caught up in the so-called “Nutritional Labels” on food and don’t look closely at the actual ingredients of the products they’re putting in their body. This is one of the BIGGEST dangers, because all calories are not created equal… and just because a snack food has just 10 calories DOES NOT mean that those calories won’t harm you.
That’s why I’m so excited about this product. It’s made with intelligence and intention to help people fuel their day using real, natural, whole food ingredients. And most importantly, it tastes AMAZING!

Gout is a very nasty disease to deal with. Once you think it’s gone and you’ve got it handled, it can show up unexpectedly and put you right back into agony.
Gout is such a tricky condition to get rid of because it has a self-perpetuating mechanism that keeps reproducing itself over-and-over again. The key to eliminating gout is understanding this feedback loop and breaking the cycle at its core.
Gout has been historically known as the “rich man’s disease” and “the disease of kings”. This was because of the lifestyle factors that were traditionally associated with the wealthy: heavily processed food (and lots of it), lack of movement (because they had others to do the work for them), and lack of true rest (because they were often out-of-sync with nature and could stay up late enjoying the spoils of the privileged life).
