It supports your metabolism, yep… many people actually started losing weight by using this kind of Coconut oil instead of other cooking oils, and many people actually believe that this oil is better than Butter.

I really love the smell of this oil. I personally hate the Coconut cakes and candies, but for some reason I love this oil, especially on a toasted bread with honey, hmmm, makes me want to make some now :) So far I only heard some “government-related organizations” tell people to lay off of the Coconut oil because it may not be good for you because of the large amounts of some kind of Fats, but at the same time, more and more of normal people like you and me are claiming how this kind of extremely healthy oil helped them in multiple health issues.

10 Very Healthy Natural Toothpaste Products

Natural Toothpaste Products with Xylitol and No Fluoride.I have been wanting to put together an article specifically like this where I could provide my readers with not just information but with very useful and healthy products too. This might make your research easier and probably save you some time and money while deciding on which toothpaste to buy. All of these Toothpastes and Tooth Gels are at Amazon website, all you need to do is click on a specific image below and the link will take you to that exact product. Yep, I’ll get some kind of commission from Amazon if you’ll buy any of these Oral Care Products.

When I look for Toothpaste products, I make sure that there is No Fluoride, because Fluoride is more poisonous than the Lead and just slightly less poisonous than the Arsenic. Also, I like to stay away from SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate), because it is a very corrosive ingredient and is very harmful to skin and hair. SLS is usually put in hair and skin care products like soaps and shampoos, but I never actually seen it in oral care products. If you care about the health of your and your children’s teeth, then I really recommend for you to make sure that your family consumes Xylitol through gums, mouth rinses, tooth gels, and through toothpastes. Xylitol is a Naturally occurring Carbohydrate and is used for a long time now as a Natural Sweetener. As far as people know it is really good for our teeth, but it is very bad or even deadly for pets. For People – Xylitol Helps keep neutral pH in the mouth, Xylitol Prevents Bacteria from sticking to the teeth, Xylitol protects from tooth decay, Xylitol stops acid attacks, Xylitol decreases the Plaque amount in your mouth, and finally Xylitol repairs damaged Enamel on your teeth.

Juicing Your Way to Weight Loss

Cabbages for juicing.Before you start juicing, you should know that it can get pretty expensive, and I’m not just talking about the start-up costs of buying a juicer. You can go through a lot of vegetables as you juice your way to weight loss. This is why having a garden can go a long way.

That being said the health benefits are amazing, and it is very cost effective when you weigh it against considering joining a weight loss program that requires you to throw a lot of hard earned dollars toward losing weight. Not only that – juicing is truly refreshing – and you can do it in your kitchen

Remember when you didn’t like coffee? And when you couldn’t stand the taste of beer? Well it is somewhat the same with juicing, depending on what you juice. There are a lot of tasty vegetable drinks out there, but when you get going on the green drinks, the healthiest ones there are, you are definitely not going to like them at first. Continue reading
