Approximately one out of three Americans is affected by non-alcohol fatty liver disease, and the numbers are growing.1

Before we launch into panic mode and go out to wipe off pharmacy shelves of mosquito repellents to fight Zika, we should perhaps take a step back and calmly scrutinize possible factors that may be putting us at higher risk of getting Zika.
You’d be surprised at the number of "supplement myths" we hear about and respond to every day. It’s actually gotten so bad that we've decided to write a blog post on it. So, here we are.
Nutrient dense foods can pack a seriously powerful health punch. And we’re not just talking about vitamins and minerals. These “super foods” are also loaded with antioxidants and other phytochemicals that are essential for optimal health and longevity.
No one can predict with certainty how long you’ll live, but there are certain factors that may provide an indication.
In fact, your ability to smell may actually give a hint, according to the results of a new study.
It’s a common misconception that men don’t care about their health as much as women do, but we don’t believe it for a second.

Age-related macular degeneration is the number one cause of blindness in the Unites States for people over 60.
In fact, as many as 11 million people in the United States have some form of age-related macular degeneration. This number is expected to double to nearly 22 million by 2050.1
The health of your bones is not something to take lightly. About one-third of all women older than 50 (and one-fifth of men) will break a bone due to osteoporosis, and a significant portion of these fractures will result in death.4
According to a recent study, black tea may actually help to combat osteoporosis. The results were published in the journal, Nature Medicine.
Just like us, plants have to fight off microorganisms. Most of the vegetables we enjoy, in particular herbs and spices, have natural infection-fighting properties.
Cooking with herbs and spices not only helps with flavor, but also imparts immune-boosting effects. Let’s take a look at a few spices that are probably in your spice rack right now.
