It has a long history of traditional use and enough clinical trials to…

The peak season for winter gremlins is January-February and doesn’t end until April, meaning we’ve still got at least another month or two before we’re out of the woods. You’ve probably already got tissues and vitamin C stockpiled, but there’s another item you’ll want to add to your winter wellness…

Popcorn is healthy. Or unhealthy… even dangerous, all depending on how it’s done. The Good Popcorn kernels are always non-GMO, fiber-rich whole grains. If you like eating popcorn at night, I have good news. Corn kernels contain the amino acid tryptophan which can boost serotonin, the “happy” neurotransmitter. Because it can even help us have a good sleep by producing melatonin, the evening is my favorite time to eat foods rich in tryptophan. This amino acid gets into our brain…

You may be a worrier, or maybe not. If you’re a parent, when a toddler decides to suck on a dog toy or shopping cart handle, you may panic, or you may shrug, saying “That should help develop their immune system.” I’ve seen both reactions.
