How Safe is Your Cookware?

You maybe trying to eat healthy by buying organic fruits and veggies and cooking home meals, but you may not realize the pots and pans you use to cook are poisoning you. You may not even give a second thought about what you use to prepare your meals. You may even feel satisfied that you're doing everything you can for your health by eating as much raw and unprocessed food as possible. Unfortunately, it may not be enough if you're not very selective in your food prep.

Lithium in the Brain

Vitamins and minerals are important for the human body to function at it's best. Minerals such as sodium and potassium are among the most important minerals that help our cellular functioning. One mineral that is mostly overlooked that could be the most important for our brain is lithium. You may think of lithium as a drug to treat mental illnesses, however, lithium is in the same mineral class as sodium and potassium. It has been shown to help boost grey matter in the brain, enhance nerve cell DNA replication, as well as protect and renew brain cells. High doses of lithium are medically prescribed but lower doses of it can be found over the counter. 


New Discoveries

We all know green tea is a great source of antioxidants and that it has many curing properties. Researchers are now finding out that green tea can also promote working memory function! It does this by specifically enhancing the communication from the parietal lobe and the frontal cortex. In this study, they used an MRI to monitor the increase in cognitive performance.
