taking time for you

Has your life been turned upside down since the pandemic began? Most of us have been forced to adapt to a radically new way of living. Plans have gone out the window. Work has changed or, in many cases, has ended altogether. Socializing is awkward and tricky. And there seems to be no end in sight. It’s no wonder so many of us are struggling with stress, depression, and anxiety. Taking care of yourself is more important than ever. If there’s a theme to this issue, I think it’s that—self-care. Chris Mann’s interview with wellness expert Leah Vanderveldt, author of Magical Self-Care for Everyday Life, illustrates this so well. As you’ll read on p. 12, Vanderveldt “sprinkles conscious and soulful eating with a bewitching blend of earthy and otherworldly self-care ingredients.” I…

why you should go organic

Many people choose organic food to lessen their exposure to synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, but there are many more benefits to this wholesome way of eating. Health-wise, organic crops contain more concentrated nutrients than conventional crops, so they’re better for you. Plus, organic farming methods protect and enhance our environment, making our food supply more sustainable, diverse, and secure. “What happens on organic farms has a synergistic impact,” says Jessica Shade, PhD, Director of Science Programs at The Organic Center, a nonprofit educational and research organization. Organic farming makes the soil richer, more resilient to climate change, and capable of absorbing and retaining more carbon monoxide from the atmosphere. And organic farmers grow a much greater variety of crops, which helps us develop more diverse diets while also enabling essential pollinators,…

ubiquinol relieves fatigue

Ubiquinol is the active form of CoQ10, a nutrient used by cells to produce energy. While many studies have shown that it can help people with heart failure, a new study in Japan found that Ubiquinol supplements can also revitalize energy in healthy middle-aged people who experience fatigue. In a group of 60 people, researchers compared the e ects of 100 or 150 mg of Ubiquinol daily to a placebo during a 12-week period. They measured blood levels of the nutrient and surveyed participants’ energy levels during and after a series of challenging mental tests. They found that both doses of Ubiquinol raised blood levels of the nutrient and significantly enhanced energy. The study was published in the journal Nutrients.…

50-65% fewer deaths

People who walk significantly more steps each day live longer, according to a study that tracked nearly 5,000 people for a decade. More specifically, researchers compared the lifespans of Americans who were age 40 or older at the outset and took no more than 4,000, 8,000, or at least 12,000 steps daily. Compared to people taking 4,000 or fewer daily steps, risk of death from any cause was 50 percent lower for those taking 8,000 daily steps and 65 percent lower for 12,000 daily steps. Steps can be measured with pedometers, smartwatches, fitness bands, or the Apple Health app on iPhones and the Google Fit app on Android phones.…
