World-wide, July 2015—It’s been awhile, but shortly after September 23, 2013, we introduced you to an amazing tree-like plant that is indigenous to the area surrounding the Himalaya mountain chain, and is as old as Frankincense and Myrrh.

We began talking about it after this September date because that’s when your editors were introduced to it.

We’re talking about the moringa tree. And from it a powder-like substance called moringa oleifera.

Dubbed the “most nutritious botanical in the world” by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the leaves, roots and bark of this scrubby but hardy little plant have been used for millennia to improve the health of those living in third-world countries, specifically, besides the Himalayas—India, Indonesia and Sub-Saharan Africa. For years, its primary purpose was to help new mothers lactate—so they would be able to better nourish their babies.

Everywhere, USA, July 2015—Ghee (pronounced pretty much like it’s spelled, or gē) is a shelf-stable class of clarified butter. It’s been used for centuries in the traditional cuisine that’s common in India—and has been noted for its wellness benefits.

But the uses for this versatile ingredient, sometimes called “Ayurvedic gold,” extend to kitchens everywhere. Ghee has a high smoke point and a rich, nutty flavor. With the introduction of Gurunanda™ Pure Cow Ghee in generous 12.8 oz. bottles, cooks can always have a healthier, delicious, and shelf-stable cooking fat and natural flavoring close at hand.

Tips on Aging in Style

The Good Old USA (and Elsewhere), July 2015—Movie starts like Dame Helen Mirren and Demi Moore seem to defy aging. It poses the question: Is it possible for the average American to maintain a smooth face and lustrous tresses even as time marches on? Model, celebrity trainer and nutrition expert Joey Thurman says it is, provided you follow an age-defying diet and fitness plan.  
 
“The food you put inside your body is going to reflect on your outside appearance, and I don’t just mean your waistline,” says Thurman. “There are some foods which can actually age you faster than others, leaving you looking tired, bloated, and years older than you actually are. Thankfully, there are also plenty of foods which can help improve cell repair and keep you looking as young as you feel.”

Everywhere, July 2015—For those of us who have interest in the world and all that it’s capable of giving, most should be aware of the phenomenon of how Mother Nature directs us toward the best foods by color-coding them.

Foods, especially those that are red, orange, yellow, green, blue or purple are not only colorful, hidden among them are a plethora of vitamin and mineral powerhouses—all of which are good for us.

Boulder, Colorado, May 2015—Eighty percent of us are in for it: We’ll experience back pain sometime during our lives. And of that enormous group, millions are unable to find long-term relief.

According to a recent survey conducted by BackJoy, a company that makes posture-improving products, only 23% of Americans realize that simply correcting our posture has a positive effect on back pain. To find out more about how we think about this problem, a survey was done. What follows is a summary of what we’re saying about our back pain, posture and exactly how far we’d go (or have already gone) to find relief. (Reminds us of our moms telling us to stop slouching and to sit up straight!)

Survey says:

Tummy Aches

Everywhere USA July 2015—During the lifetime of most English-speaking people nowadays, stomach aches (or “tummy” aches) as most of us called them, were common and part of growing up.

Unfortunately, those problems persist in some of us even as we grow older. And what makes matters worse is that an ache here or there might mean something more serious than a pain caused by having one more piece of pizza than you should have.

What’s in a Name?

Los Angeles, California, July 2015—Last month, Roll Global officially changed its name to The Wonderful Company. We’re reminded of the Shakespearean quote “What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet…” which was meant to imply that something or someone’s name does not always identify what they are.

But this company has different plans for its name change. Read on:

Los Angeles, California, May 2015—Pardon the play on words, but there’s a new company out there with an interesting new product we want you to know about. The “gotcha” headline is meant to get your attention. It should have worked; so read on.

The cute headline is also a play on the name of the company: You Are Loved Foods. They have launched a brand new line of truly pure Paleo (e.g., as in caveman—essentially anything processed is not in the picture), gluten-free treats, desserts and snacks.

Thirteen years ago, Jonathan Heine, now president and founder of You Are Loved Foods, was a mess. Only 42 years old, he weighed 294 pounds and was headed toward diabetes. Addicted to chocolate, starch and sweets—and eating poorly, he was stressed out by his job, which, adding insult to injury, was on Wall Street. Diets just exacerbated his problems.

Being Green

Everywhere, USA—Teaching our kids about sustainability and green living is one of the most important things we can do to safeguard the future of humanity and the planet we inhabit.

The North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) reports that environmental education teaches children how to learn about and investigate their environment and to make intelligent, informed decisions about sustainability. Furthermore, learning about the environment is multi-disciplinary, so it allows teachers a rare opportunity to integrate different parts of their curriculum while challenging students to think about the big picture. Thankfully, teachers today have a plethora of resources for incorporating sustainability in their lessons and activities.
