    New Anti-Aging Serum Breaks All the Rules

    New Anti-Aging Serum Breaks All the Rules

    When Should You Start Using Anti-Aging Skin Care Products?
    The wealth of products available these days to target visible signs of aging such as fine lines, crow’s feet, dark under-eye circles and dull skin are a gift and a curse. The options are so extensive that it can actually feel quite overwhelming figuring out a skin care regimen that works best. So when and where does one begin?
     
    Experts agree that skin starts to age around 20 years old and recommend that you start the road to prevention early. “I recommend my patients to start incorporating anti-aging skin care products in their 20s and 30s, when our skin slowly starts to lose collagen,” says Y. Claire Chang, a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist at Union Square Laser Dermatology in New York City.
     
    Face Serum Benefits for All Ages
    Just like it’s never too soon to start being physically active or eating mindfully, this fundamental aspect of life also applies to skin care. Using serums loaded with incredibly important ingredients before you start seeing signs of aging and environmental assault means you'll be on track for getting (and keeping) the beautiful skin you want now and in the long term.
     
    Keep in mind that just like your body never "gets used" to eating nutrient-dense foods, nor does your skin get used to great ingredients. Your skin craves and needs generous amounts of beneficial ingredients like antioxidants, skin-replenishing, and skin-restoring ingredients because each group helps skin be healthy and stay young-looking. Using them now does not mean they won’t work "when you really need them"; rather, they will be working for you every day of your life.
     
    Of course, these ingredients also work after signs of aging appear, but without question, sooner is better than later!
     
     
    Roots of The Aging Concept
    Referring to Greek mythology, the quest for immortality is embodied in the story of Eos, the immortal goddess of dawn. She falls madly in love with Tithon, a mortal human. Not supporting the idea of seeing him die, she claims for him eternity. Zeus agrees, but poor Eos realizes her mistake too late, as what she wanted for Tithon was not eternity but eternal youth. She will therefore be condemned to see him eternally grow old. This myth of ancient Greece refers directly to the current perception of aging: accept the temporary nature of life, while differing as long as possible the appearance of the signs of aging.
     
    Today, in industrialized countries, this quest seems strongly motivated by the fear of social exclusion. Indeed, a study conducted on a cohort of 1,713 American women, over 50 years old and mostly of Caucasian type, highlights a great psychological suffering based both on the image that these women have of themselves but also on the degrading image that the rest of society sends back to them.
     
    More than 50% of these women reported the perception of physical changes that occur during aging, notably sagging skin and wrinkles. Their cognitive adaptations to the physical experience of aging and the psychological experience of body image altered in parallel. This point is extremely important because it shows how much women correlate the initiation of their aging-related psychological malaise with the appearance of visible signs revealing their age. 
     
    Let’s get scientific for a minute…
     
    With age, our tissues lose their function and capacity to regenerate after being damaged. A study published today in Cell by scientists at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) and the Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico of the Center for Genomic Regulation (CNAG-CRG) explains how dermal fibroblasts age.
     
    The main conclusion drawn is that these fibroblasts lose their cell identity, as if they had "forgotten" what they are, and consequently their activity is altered, thus affecting tissue

    Tummy Troubles? The Best Essential Oils for Digestive Problems

    Tummy Troubles? The Best Essential Oils for Digestive Problems

    If you’re like most people, you probably don’t give much thought to your digestive system except when you’re experiencing a tummy ache or other issues such as gas, constipation, and diarrhea. In this episode, we’ll delve into ways to keep your digestion humming along including using essential oils for digestion when things aren’t running smoothly.
    Tummy Troubles? The Best Essential Oils for Digestive Problems
    If you’re like most people, you probably don’t give much thought to your digestive system except when you’re experiencing a tummy ache or other issues such as gas, constipation, and diarrhea. In this article, we’ll delve into ways to keep your digestion humming along including using essential oils for digestion when things aren’t running smoothly.
    Why a Healthy Digestive System Matters Did you know that not only is your digestive tract important for breaking down food for nourishment, it also plays an important role in immunity, brain health, and cognition!
    The Link Between Digestive Health and the Brain There is an increasing number of scientific studies that have identified a direct link between digestive health and the brain and emotions. Studies consistently show that gut health (or lack thereof) can have an enormous effect on mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and even autism [1-4].
    Hippocrates, known as the Father of Medicine (460-370 BC) believed that all disease processes began in the gut. Although the digestive system is often thought to comprise only the stomach and intestines, it is actually much more inclusive than that. In order to function at optimally, the digestive system requires peak performance from the stomach and intestines, as well as the liver, kidneys, and gallbladder.
    7 Ways to Improve Gut Health There are many steps we can take to better care for our digestion. These include:
    eating lots of fresh, organic, fiber-rich fruits and vegetables focusing on the consumption of nutrient-dense foods taking probiotics and/or enzymes reducing stress (which has an enormous impact on the gut) getting better sleep exercising using essential oils Millions of American Suffer from Gut Issues When the digestive tract is compromised, it can make you feel over-tired, suffer from lowered immunity, gain weight, and experience gastrointestinal discomfort.
    Sometimes you experience stomach pain or cramping, as well as belching, gas, and bad breath. At other times you may feel bloated, nauseous, or have other issues.
    In the United States alone, the National Institutes of Health advise that 60 to 70 million people are affected by digestive diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) [5].
    The Problem with Over-the-Counter Medications For years, people have relied upon over-the-counter medications for digestive complaints. These products often contain bismuth subsalicylate, which comes from the aspirin family and has anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, and acid-reducing action.
    The potential problem with these sorts of medications is that they are only recommended for use for a couple of days. This means people who have problems that last longer than that (e.g., IBS, chronic heartburn, or acid reflux from GERD) aren’t supposed to use these products for more than two days.
    It’s also not advisable for children to take them, nor anyone with the flu, because bismuth subsalicylate is contraindicated on the label for anyone with the flu, a virus, or chickenpox. Taking this medication increases the risk for the development of Reye’s syndrome, a potentially life-threatening illness.
    Are Essential Oils for Digestion a Good Alternative? Certain essential oils and blends can greatly benefit digestive health due to their anti-inflammatory, calming, anti-spasmodic, and cell-protective benefits.
    For example, Organixx Digest

    New OrganiGreens Formulation and Why It’s the Best Greens Powder on the Market

    New OrganiGreens Formulation and Why It’s the Best Greens Powder on the Market

    Getting all the nutrients and antioxidants your body needs on a daily basis isn’t easy – but it is vital to your health. Green drinks offer a quick and tasty alternative to juicing because they’re packed with superfoods that promote your body’s natural detoxing process, help enhance your immune system, aid in smooth digestion, and boost energy.
     
    We wanted to answer the questions…
    Why did you change the formulation for OrganiGreens?  What’s the difference between this and the previous version?  
    We are always looking to refine our formulas to make them better and even more nutritious. While our previous formula was excellent, we were able to reduce the number of overall ingredients substantially in this new formula while still retaining the same nutrient density. This actually makes OrganiGreens accessible to a broader range of people who may have been allergic to a particular ingredient in the old formula.  
     
    The other significant change is that we are now only offering PURE (unsweetened). This way, people may add their own sweetener of choice. A few options we like include organic stevia, monk fruit, local raw honey, and Lakanto… and, of course, no sweetener at all is always a good option.   
     
    Unlike many supplements on the market, Organixx supplements (including OrganiGreens) contain NO preservatives or fillers.  
     
    OrganiGreens is dried to below a certain moisture percentage which keeps the product intact. We do recommend keeping the package tightly closed between uses and storing in a cool, dry place.  
     
    OrganiGreens contains only plant-based products and is both vegetarian and vegan. 
    At Organixx we strive to source the highest-quality ingredients available, including USDA Organic whenever possible. For all of our products, each of the individual ingredients that are certified organic are specified on the label.   
    In the case of OrganiGreens, all of the individual ingredients except for the probiotic & enzyme blend are certified organic and the product carries the USDA Organic certification. This indicates the total product is at least 95% organic.   
     
     
    INGREDIEINTS

    How to Alkalize Your Body

    How to Alkalize Your Body

    Importance of Balanced pH in the Body
     
    What is pH balance?
    Your body’s pH balance, also referred to as its acid-base balance, is the level of acids and bases in your blood at which your body functions best.
     
    The human body is built to naturally maintain a healthy balance of acidity and alkalinity. The lungs and kidneys play a key role in this process. A normal blood pH level is 7.40 on a scale of 0 to 14, where 0 is the most acidic and 14 is the most basic. This value can vary slightly in either direction.
     
    If the lungs or kidneys are malfunctioning, your blood’s pH level can become imbalanced. Disruption in your acid-base balance can lead to medical conditions known as acidosis and alkalosis. Both conditions require treatment from a medical professional, not simply dietary changes.
     
    Different fluids are found inside the human body. The cells inside the body are often affected by the ph level.
     
    If you experience stress, tiredness, excess weight, fatigue, aches, pains, poor digestion, and other serious disorders, the ph level inside your body may be too acidic.
     
    The three things that might contribute more to the body to become overly acidic are ingesting acids, creation of acids, and improper acid elimination.
     
    Role of pH in Everyday Life
     
    Digestive system Hydrochloric Acid – produced in stomach and helps digestion of food without causing any harm to the stomach. If it gets too high there is pain and irritation in the stomach. Acids Cause Tooth Decay Sugar is degraded by bacteria in the mouth and acid is formed. When the pH is lower than 5.5 tooth enamel is corroded. Our saliva is slightly alkaline, so it helps neutralize some acid. Acid is Produced in Fatigued Muscles As a result of physical exercise, stiffness and pain in the muscles starts due to the formation of lactic acid. This reduces the oxygen supply in your muscle.  
    Foods to Help Balance Your pH
    Ingesting foods which are considered acidifying foods as dairy, processed sugar, meat, alcohol, coffee, etc. overloads the ability of your body to neutralize all the acids.
     
    If you want to obtain a well-balanced ph, you must have a proper diet and nutrition. It is wise to follow a detox plan which can greatly help the detox process. A diet consisting of foods high in alkaline, proper supplementation, and hydrating the body properly can aid the body in detox.
     
    Alkaline Veggies to Add to Your Diet
    If you have a condition that requires you to watch the alkaline and acid levels of your
    food, then you will be curious about which alkaline veggies you can add to your diet.
    Here are some of the best options for you.
     
    Cauliflower
    You first vegetable option is probably one you already eat on a regular basis, which is
    good news! This makes it a lot easier to add to your current diet, and still be on the
    alkaline diet your doctor recommends.
     
    This interesting vegetable is highly anti-inflammatory and provides a good amount of choline which is an important B vitamin for brain health. It is also an excellent source of antioxidants and phytonutrients which give the body a better chance at fighting free radicals. Cauliflower also helps cardiovascular health because of the agent sulforaphane which promotes proper cell formation of the veins and arteries. Another excellent thing about cauliflower is that it is often used in low-carb diets, so if this is something you need to watch out for, this is a great low-starch vegetable.  
    Radishes
    Your next option is to add more radishes to your current diet, as they are also very
    alkaline vegetables. Radishes are known to have a cooling effect on the body, and was
    used by ancient Chinese doctors to help people deal with heat during hot weather.
     
    They’re also diuretic and help the body to flush toxins by passing them into urine and out of the body. They are high i

    The Magic of Nettle Tea

    The Magic of Nettle Tea

    What is nettle?
    Nettle, or stinging nettle, is a shrub that comes from northern Europe and Asia. Its scientific name is Urtica dioica.
    If you’ve had the experience of walking through a meadow or trail in the woods and found yourself with a bristly rash on exposed parts of your limbs, you may have brushed up against some stinging nettle. Nettles are an herbaceous perennial flowering plant, native to Europe, Asia, northern Africa, and North America.
    The plant has many hollow stinging hairs called "trichomes" on its leaves and stems, which act like needles that inject histamine, formic acid and other chemicals that produce a stinging sensation. It’s very high nutritional content has made it a popular food source steamed and eaten like spinach (it does loose the “sting” when cooked), taken as a tea made from the dried leaves to assist in the nutrition of expectant or nursing mothers, or for general tonic properties for good health.
    The leaves, stem, or root from the nettle plant can be crushed and made into powders, tinctures, creams, teas, and more. While people have used it for centuries as an herbal medicine, modern research also supports many of the potential health benefits of nettle and nettle tea.
    Stinging nettle’s leaves and root provide a wide variety of nutrients, including:
    Vitamins: Vitamins A, C and K, as well as several B vitamins Minerals: Calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and sodium Fats: Linoleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid and oleic acid Amino acids: All of the essential amino acids Polyphenols: Kaempferol, quercetin, caffeic acid, coumarins and other flavonoids Pigments: Beta-carotene, lutein, luteoxanthin and other carotenoids What’s more, many of these nutrients act as antioxidants inside your body.
    Antioxidants are molecules that help defend your cells against damage from free radicals. Damage caused by free radicals is linked to aging, as well as cancer and other harmful diseases.
    Studies indicate that stinging nettle extract can raise blood antioxidant levels.
    Top 5 Benefits of Nettles
    1. Urinary tract health Nettle may help flush harmful bacteria from the urinary tract. This can benefit people who have urinary conditions, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH causes an enlarged prostate gland in men. This can cause pain or other problems urinating.
    According to one 2013 study men with BPH who took nettle extract had fewer clinical symptoms than those who didn’t.
    Nettle may also help support any medications you’re taking for infections or conditions related to the urinary tract. Talk to your doctor first about any possible interactions between herbal remedies and medications you take.
    2. Arthritis and pain Nettle has historically been used to treat pain and sore muscles, especially related to arthritis. The Arthritis Foundation suggests that nettle tea may also reduce the inflammation and pain association with osteoarthritis.
    3. Blood sugar management Nettle has shown some promising effects on blood glucose levels. It may help the pancreas make or release more insulin, the hormone that lowers blood sugar.
    In a 2013 study, nettle leaf extract lowered blood glucose and A1C in a group of people with type 2 diabetes who were taking insulin as well as oral diabetes medications.
    4. The power of polyphenols Nettle is high in plant chemicals called polyphenols. A review of the research on polyphenols suggests that these powerful compounds may play a role in the prevention and management of chronic diseases related to inflammation, such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, and heart disease.
    In particular, polyphenols from nettle extract have shown some exciting potential for treating breast cancer and prostate cancer. Plants like nettle also contain potent antioxidants, which are substances that protect the body from aging and cell d

    Top Essential Oils Do’s and Don’ts

    Top Essential Oils Do’s and Don’ts

    Join us for a dive into the power of essential oils in our daily lives. The interest in essential oils is rapidly on the rise according to Google Trends. The trend line is fascinating.  Why? What makes essential oils so sought after? They work! Organixx carries a line of organic and pure essential oils. Today we will share the top 3 uses of the top single essential oils in our line.
    Lavender
    Lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. We’ve all heard by now that lavender promotes deeper sleep, but did you know…
     
    There’s promising research for breast health too. 2014 Iranian research published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer found that lavender oil kills breast cancer cells but leaves healthy cells unharmed. It’s important to note that this study was on cells in a petri dish, not on humans. The researchers concluded that: “L. angustifolia has cytotoxic and apoptotic effects in HeLa and MCF-7 cell lines, and apoptosis is proposed as the possible mechanism of action.”1 Stops the itch and burn of insect bites. Even fire ants! Put a drop of lavender oil on a bee sting, mosquito, or other bug bite to stop pain, itching, and reduce swelling. Reapply as necessary. Lavender oil works really well for this, especially if applied immediately. Use it as a flavor booster. Add a drop of high-quality lavender oil suitable for consumption to brownie batter, chocolate icing, cookie dough, dessert recipes, raw chocolate, or even salad dressings. It’s absolutely delicious.  
    Is Lavender Oil Safe?
    Using diluted lavender oil topically or in aromatherapy is generally considered safe for most adults but may not be recommended for children. Applying pure lavender oil to your skin (especially open wounds) may also cause irritation, so we recommend infusing it with a carrier oil, such as olive oil or coconut oil. Dissolving it in water also works.
     
    Be careful not to rub lavender oil in your eyes and mucous membranes. If this happens, wash it out immediately. Lavender oil may also cause allergic reactions in people with unusually sensitive skin, so do a spot test before using it. Simply apply a drop of lavender oil to your arm and see if any reaction occurs.
     
    The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) also warns against using lavender oil when taking medications like barbiturates, benzodiazepines and chloral hydrate, as it may increase their sedative effects and cause extreme drowsiness and sleepiness.
     
     
    Tea Tree (Melaleuca)
    This versatile oil possesses antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antifungal properties.
     
    Due to its potent anti-inflammatory benefits, tea tree oil helps to relieve inflammatory skin conditions, especially eczema and psoriasis. Dilute as necessary and apply to affected area two to three times daily. Tea tree oil has long been used as a natural bug repellent by native Australian aboriginal people. Chinese research in 2016 found tea tree to be effective against the cereal weevil, Sitophilus zeamais.3 The cereal weevil is considered to be an extremely destructive pest to stored cereals all over the world. Tea tree also helps to relieve the pain, itching, and inflammation of insect bites. If it’s an extra-hot day and your deodorant has failed, apply again, but this time with a drop or two of tea tree oil to help kill bacteria. Tea tree oil’s potent antibacterial properties are well proven with dozens of research studies.  
    Is Tea Tree Oil Safe?
    The answer is yes, as long as it is applied topically in appropriate doses and NOT swallowed. This oil may irritate your skin, especially if used for the first time. We recommend starting with low concentrations until you figure out your tolerance. Determine if you have an allergy to tea tree oil before using it by doing a skin test — apply a small amount to your inner arm to see if any r
