Top 5 Health Benefits of Cinnamon

Written by: Caroline MacDougall

Exotic spices. Wars were fought over them in distant lands where untold lives were lost or enslaved in the quest to control the trade of these extraordinary botanicals that could turn food into sublime taste adventures. Once revered for legendary healing properties and sold for over 50 times the annual wage of a common laborer, spices are now simply thought of as culinary condiments to be found in everyone’s spice drawer.

But a deeper look into recent science reveals that the ancients may not have been so very wrong in their belief that spices were the font of health. I’d like to share why a morning brew of a spicy tea is my preferred way to start the day.

Let’s begin with looking at cinnamon, foremost among spices for its sweet and pungent flavor that transforms anything going into your mouth while it has unexpected effects on your body. A recent accidental discovery has pushed cinnamon into the limelight for its effect on reducing blood sugar, the holy grail for people suffering from pre-diabetic and diabetic conditions.

Perhaps you want to stabilize your blood sugar to help lose weight or like me, you’re looking for a caffeine-free stimulant in your morning brew. Adding cinnamon to your daily diet is a delicious way to lower your blood sugar and reduce both your cholesterol and blood pressure while you naturally boost your metabolism. Here are the top 5 health benefits of cinnamon! Read More

Written by: Ashley Vincenti

Kay is a health coach who is a total Ambassador powerhouse for us on the east coast. We are always grateful for her frequent events and that she sends such super pics. She told about this recent event:

“On Saturday, May 5th, 2018, I was in Secaucus, NJ at their Green Day Festival. I was at the event educating people on natural and green products that are not only good for them, but good for the environment. While there I caught up with many people, among them was a mother and daughter duo (Olga and mom) who was very, super enthusiastic about trying Teeccino and a lovely woman by the name of Barbara from Ridgewood, NJ, who said she can’t wait to taste it and share with her “peoples”. Barbara has “lots of people”; everyone knows her in her town.” Read More

Detox with Dandelion and Chicory Roots

Written by: Caroline MacDougall

Spring officially arrived on the morning of Tuesday, March 20th marked by the Spring Equinox when light and darkness are equally balanced. Now that the daylight is getting longer everyday, it’s a traditional time for a spring detox program. Recovering from a tough flu season where many people, who are never sick, were felled for weeks, it may be just the thing to revive one’s vitality and rebuild the immune system.

There are lots of detox programs recommending the best way to detox and cleanse. Choosing between those that involve fasting versus those that have a regime for eating cleanly is a decision you need to make depending on what fits your body and your life’s rhythms the best.

Whichever style you choose, detox programs can present a big challenge for many people due to the requirement to refrain from drinking coffee and alcohol. Ok, some number of days without alcohol isn’t that big a deal for most people, but ask a coffee drinker to give up the morning cuppa and boom! Resistance sets in.

Dandelion root, roasted and ground to brew like coffee, and chicory root, the French coffee alternative, can help a coffee drinker get over that hurdle. Along with replacing the taste and body of a cup of coffee, dandelion and chicory roots have detox health benefits that add to a cleansing program. But you have to be careful to prepare ahead of time to make your detox program more effective and more pleasant. Here’s why eliminating caffeine during a detox program is such an important factor and how drinking an herbal coffee made from dandelion and chicory roots can help.
