A lot of people use chemically-rich hygiene products that the skin ultimately absorbs. If we are solely referring to deodorants, roll-ons, or perfumes, they can clog pores and can actually build up on your skin. Nobody wants to smell bad, but you don’t have to poison your body to smell good.

 

Some people just don’t want to change their deodorant, even though they know it is bad. Aside from making your armpits smell good, you need to give them some healthy attention too. Because the sebaceous glands in the armpits are always active, they are constantly producing sweat; thus body odor. If you don’t detox your underarms, you can develop more prominent body odor or dark underarms.

 

Causes of Dark Underarms:

Some people have dark underarms and others never have to worry about this problem. Dead skin cells, chemical build-up, excessive sweating, excessive deodorant use, and friction from rough fabric are all possible causes of dark underarms. To help detox your underarms and naturally whiten them, we recommend using the following DIY remedy.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons activated charcoal powder
  • 2 tablespoons organic raw honey

Instructions:

  • Combine the charcoal and honey in a bowl and stir well. Mix until you get a shiny paste.
  • Wash your underarms and pat them dry before applying the charcoal honey mixture. Apply to each underarm and let it sit for 15 minutes.
  • Rinse the mixture off with warm water and then pat dry. Do this process three times a week for about a month to sufficiently detox and whiten your armpits.

6 Foods That Help To Boost Your Memoryhttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/6-foods-that-help-to-boost-your-memory/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/6-foods-that-help-to-boost-your-memory/#comments Thu, 18 Jan 2018 12:15:47 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=76003 You can naturally improve your brain function and decrease your risk of Alzheimer's disease when you eat these healthy brain-boosting foods.

You may be wondering how the food you eat can affect your brain. Well, the brain is in your body and your body is affected by the food you eat; thus, your brain is affected by the food you eat. You can help boost brain function the same way you can boost your immune system or metabolism. As it turns out, helping the different systems, specifically your gut, in the body can keep your brain healthy.

 

When the body is stressed, for example, it tries to remedy the situation via inflammation. Inflammation is beneficial if you have a wound because it helps to repair the damage, but it is not beneficial when it is chronically in the body for no reason. This can lead to multiple sclerosis, high blood pressure, anxiety, and other health conditions.

 

When your digestive system is happy, your body can help keep inflammation under control. Healthy gut flora is actually conducive to a healthy brain because gut hormones enter the brain and can improve cognitive function. Additionally, eating foods that are abundant in antioxidants, healthy fats, and vitamins & minerals help to decrease your risk of cognitive decline. Be sure to include the following foods in your diet to boost your memory and keep your brain healthy.

 

Extra Virgin Olive Oil:

This oil contains heart-healthy fats, but it also contains oleocanthal. This substance helps to increase the production of enzymes and proteins, which help to break up plaques have been associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

 

Broccoli:

It’s always important to eat your greens. Not only is broccoli rich in plant-based protein, but it is also abundant in vitamin C. In fact, one cup of broccoli contains about 150% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C. It also contains choline, which helps to keep your memory sharp.

 

Virgin Coconut Oil:

It is important to get virgin coconut oil and not whatever coconut oil you see on the shelf. Cold-pressed virgin coconut oil is even better. Coconut oil is a proven heart-healthy oil and acts as a natural antibiotic and antioxidant. It also helps to improve the body’s use of insulin.

 

Rosemary:

Rosemary has a lot of anti-aging properties. It also contains carnosic acid, which helps to protect the brain from neurological damage. This acid protects the brain from free radical damage, which has been known to cause strokes and Alzheimer’s disease. Dried rosemary is beneficial, but it is always better to get the fresh herb.

 

Turmeric:

Turmeric has already been known to have anti-cancer properties, and more recent studies are indicating that it can help keep people mentally sharp. More recently, it has demonstrated that it can help to positively influence brain function, especially for people who have genetic history of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other neurological disorders.

 

Blueberries:

Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, which are integral for a healthy brain. Not only are they rich in fiber, vitamin K, and vitamin C, but they also contain tons of healthy omegas and work to decrease stress and brain degeneration, due to the galic acid content.

The Best Foods To Eat Before You Exercisehttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/the-best-foods-to-eat-before-you-exercise/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/the-best-foods-to-eat-before-you-exercise/#comments Wed, 17 Jan 2018 09:00:30 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75859 Eating the right food before you exercise can dictate how your workout will go. Eat these plant-based foods to have the best results.

What should you eat before you exercise? This is an important question. You want something that is going to give you energy, but you also need something that your body can use efficiently. We mean that you need to eat something that the body can easily process. For example, you don’t want to eat a burger prior to your workout because: a) it isn’t good for your health; and b) the body cannot properly digest or process it.

 

Some athletes (endurance athletes in particular) need to eat while they work out. Exercising intensely for 90 minutes or longer burns through stored electrolytes and glycogen. To help maintain these levels, it becomes necessary to eat foods or drink beverages that are high in easily digestible nutrients. These foods are also beneficial to eat prior to exercising. Eat the following foods about 30 minutes before your workout to stock up on natural carbs and electrolytes.

 

Figs:

These are almost too easy to eat because they are so delicious. Offering a multitude of nutrients, including vitamins A, C, B-vitamins, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, dried figs help to strengthen bones and improve digestion. They also work to reduce your risk of hypertension and vision loss. Make sure to buy them unsulfured and without added sugars if you are eating dried figs.

 

Apples & Nut Butter:

Apples are beneficial to eat before working out because they give you a little energy boost. Enhance this snack by dipping the apple slices in raw nut butter. This will give you a protein boost that your body can easily absorb.

 

Bananas:

Because bananas are loaded with potassium, they help to prevent muscle cramps, which is only one reason why you should eat them before exercising. Plus, you lose potassium when you sweat and these levels need to be full. Bananas also help to improve kidney disorders and they can aid in getting rid of water weight.

 

Homemade Energy Bars:

We recommend making your own energy bars or bites because you know exactly what goes in them. A lot of mainstream protein/energy bars contain chemicals or processed ingredients. You can use unsweetened dried fruit (free of sulfur) and raw nuts & seeds to make some pretty delicious bars that fuel your workouts. Try these ones!

 

Dates:

You can actually use dried dates in those energy bites we just mentioned! They are great to eat before exercising because they contain vitamin K, potassium, manganese, copper, iron, and magnesium, in addition to B-vitamins. These can increase bone strength, maintain healthy weight, and help you decrease allergic reactions.

 

Oats With Fruit, Nuts, or Seeds:

Oats are filled with complex carbs that give you long-lasting energy. By adding fresh fruit, raw nuts, or seeds, you give yourself extra fiber, protein, and other beneficial nutrients that your body can use for energy.

DIY Night Cream To Help Remedy Dark Circleshttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/diy-night-cream-to-help-remedy-dark-circles/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/diy-night-cream-to-help-remedy-dark-circles/#comments Tue, 16 Jan 2018 18:20:10 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75716 Get rid of dark circles without putting harmful chemicals on your skin. This is the cream you need to naturally remedy the problem.

It is no secret that there is a direct link between stress and certain skin conditions. Psychological stress (i.e. worrying about money, work, making food, kids, parents, or anything) can aggravate the skin. For instance, a common side effect of stress is dark circles, especially when this is combined with lack of sleep.

 

The body can only handle so much before it becomes stressed. When certain pressures go beyond a person’s adaptive power, his or her brain understands that the body is stressed and releases stress hormones. This can lead to behavioral or physiological changes. Dark circles, for example, can be a physiological response to an over abundance of stress hormones in the body.

 

When it comes to naturally getting rid of dark circles, it is much easier remedy the situation when you treat the cause. If stress is causing you to sleep less and develop dark circles, it may be beneficial for you to practice some stress relieving exercises. Natural ways to eliminate stress include massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga, Tai Chi, meditation, exercise, or even eating a healthier plant-based diet.

 

Because it may take some time for you to naturally reduce your stress levels, we have a simple DIY skincare cream that you can use to remedy dark circles. It helps to hydrate your skin and decrease puffy eyes.

 

Ingredients:

  • ½ teaspoon beeswax
  • 1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons almond oil
  • ½ teaspoon Shea butter
  • 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • ¼ cup alcohol-free aloe vera gel
  • 1 teaspoon organic raw honey
  • ½ teaspoon bentonite clay
  • 5-10 drops lemon essential oil

Instructions:

  • Place the first four ingredients in a double broiler* and heat until the mixture is melted. Pour into a blender and let it cool.
  • In a separate bowl, add the rest of the ingredients (except for the bentonite clay) and mix well.
  • Once the mixture in the blender has cooled and become similar to the texture of lip balm, break it up with a spoon and add the mixture in the bowl to the blender. Blend until everything is well combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a non-metal bowl and stir in the bentonite clay with a non-metal utensil. Place the cream in a glass jar and store in a cool, dry place. Apply a little of this cream around your eyes every night before bed.

*If you don’t have a double broiler, you can place a heat-safe glass bowl over a saucepan that is filled with simmering water. Make sure that the heat is low once the water begins to boil.

5-Minute Workout To Tone Your Butt And Legshttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-minute-workout-to-tone-your-butt-and-legs/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-minute-workout-to-tone-your-butt-and-legs/#comments Tue, 16 Jan 2018 12:15:19 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75854 Wanna tone your butt and legs without going to the gym? Do this 5-minute workout at home and you'll be thrilled with the results!

Every girl always wants her butt and legs to look good. Guys do too, but they are often more concerned with developing upper body muscles. Important: You should always workout your entire body. Not everyone has time to go to the gym to sculpt there body, which is why we have this awesome 5-minute butt and leg workout. You should do each exercise for 1 minute and then rest for 30 seconds. Are you ready? Let’s get to it!

 

Exercise #1: Squats

Make sure your feet are a little wider than shoulder-width and get going once you’re ready. When you squat, keep your back straight, eyes forward, and make sure your knees don’t go in front of your toes. You should feel like you are sitting down in a chair. Squeeze your gluteus muscles and thighs when you sink into these. Do as many squats as you can do in one minute and then rest.

 

Exercise #2: Donkey Kicks

You can do these one of two ways. If you want a better workout for your core, stay in plank position and kick your leg up. You can also put your knee on the ground and kick back with the other leg. When you kick back, squeeze you butt. Don’t just raise your leg. When you hit 30 seconds, alternate to the other leg. Keep going until the end. If you need to rest, you can, but make sure you pause your stopwatch and get right back in it when you resume. Try not to rest until after the minute is over, though.

 

Exercise #3: Hip Raises

Lay on your yoga mat and extend your fingertips towards your heels, which should be by your butt. Engaging your butt muscles, raise your hips towards the ceiling. Lower yourself slowly and raise yourself up again. If you want more of a challenge, hold your hips up for 5 seconds each time you raise your hips. You’ll definitely feel the burn.

 

Exercise #4: Plank Leg Raises

These are definitely challenging. Get in a plank position (you can put one knee on the ground if necessary), and lift your leg up towards the ceiling. Keep your leg straight. You don’t want to strain your back so only lift it as high as you can comfortably. You should feel this in your glutes and hamstrings. After 30 seconds, alternate to the other leg. Push it out until the very end.

 

Exercise #5: Lunges

It’s time to finish this workout strong! Lunge forward with one leg at a time. Try to keep your knee straight ahead. You don’t want to rush these because you can easily hurt yourself. Go slow and really feel that burn in your thighs and glutes. If you want more of a challenge, you can do these holding weights in both hands.

 

We recommend doing this workout twice a day to really tone your butt. If you’re up to it, repeat the circuit again.

First Black Woman Makes U.S. Olympic Long-Track Speed Skating Teamhttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/first-black-woman-makes-u-s-olympic-long-track-speed-skating-team/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/first-black-woman-makes-u-s-olympic-long-track-speed-skating-team/#comments Mon, 15 Jan 2018 11:00:02 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75830 The olympics are about to get a healthy dose of #blackgirlmagic now that these women are on the U.S. Olympic speed skating team.

It looks like African-American women are about to dominate speed skating in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. In fact, a 25-year old long-track speed skater just qualified for the U.S. team a little over a week ago. She placed third in the 500-meter race with a time of 39.22 seconds (the first time) and 39.04 seconds (the second time). The kicker is that she’s only been speed skating for four months!

 

Erin Jackson is a former roller derby skater and said that she “…really wasn’t expecting any of this, just coming in as a newbie…” To be clear, Jackson wasn’t just your average roller derby skater. She was a three-time roller sports Athlete of the Year.

Historically, speed skating and most other Winter Olympic sports have been devoid of African-Americans or people of color. This year, however, that is not the case. In speed skating alone, there are three black athletes. The aforementioned Jackson and Maame Biney, a 17-year old speed skater who became the first black woman to qualify for the speed skating team, will join speed skating legend Shani Davis in South Korea starting February 9th.

 

Shani Davis, a Chicago native, became the first African-American to qualify for the U.S. Olympic speed skating team in 2002. He then went on to become the first African-American to win an individual gold medal at the Winter Olympics in 2006. He is 35 years old, has a total of 27 overall medals from international competitions, and this year marks his fifth straight appearance in the Winter Olympics.

 

Let’s show our support for these athletes and all other athletes in the Winter Olympics. Let’s also remember that every athlete in the Winter Olympics deserves support. Each overcame obstacles, no matter what they were, to get there. We wish all of them a safe Winter Olympics and may everything go peacefully.

What You Should Eat To Help Improve Your Thyroidhttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/what-you-should-eat-to-help-improve-your-thyroid/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/what-you-should-eat-to-help-improve-your-thyroid/#comments Fri, 12 Jan 2018 12:15:01 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75793 Want to naturally improve your thyroid? Follow these dietary guidelines and eat these foods to help your body get back to normal.

Having a thyroid issue can completely change the way you live your life. Detecting a problem with the thyroid can take some doctors a couple years. Some people with thyroid conditions get prescribed different medications that are not conducive (or sometimes even for the thyroid) to thyroid health. These medications can lead to mood swings, constipation, sugar cravings, or extreme fatigue.

 

How Important Is A Healthy Thyroid?

The thyroid is one of the most important glands in the body. It regulates the endocrine system, which includes all of the glands in your body that are responsible for hormone production. Since the thyroid is almost like the gland in charge, the endocrine system (and the rest of your bodily functions) can become faulty. An improperly functioning thyroid basically throws your body out of whack.

 

It is possible to naturally reverse your thyroid condition through food. By eliminating certain foods and adding healthier foods, the thyroid can naturally improve its functions. Always remember that it is best to avoid meats, meat products, dairy products, flour, processed foods, junk foods, fried foods, and refined sugars. Plant-based foods are always best for your body!

 

Avoid Soy Products:

Eliminate all soy products (including edamame) from your diet when trying to heal your thyroid. About 94% of all soy is genetically engineered, and you don’t want those hormones in your body. Additionally, you should eliminate gluten, especially if you have Hashimoto’s disease, because both gluten and soy can have negative effects on normal thyroid function.

 

Sea Veggies:

Since iodine is an extremely important nutrient for the thyroid, you should eat your sea vegetables. Insufficient iodine levels can limit the production of thyroid hormones, which ultimately inhibits healthy thyroid function. The best sea vegetables to eat include spirulina, kelp, wakame, hijiki, or nori sheets.

 

Brazil Nuts:

Selenium helps to convert thyroxine to T3 hormones, and Brazil nuts are full of this mineral. It’s important to not eat too many Brazil nuts, though. Only eat three a day. Other sources of selenium include chia seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and flaxseeds. Note: Sometimes people with Hashimoto’s disease are recommended to avoid selenium, but selenium is needed for glutathione production to decrease thyroid antibodies.

 

Chlorophyll:

Due to the antioxidant properties in chlorophyll, it can decrease and absorb mold toxins, for example aflatoxin B, which can cause liver complications and cancer. Additionally, chlorophyll helps to boost energy levels and remove heavy metals, which may be negatively affecting the thyroid. Make sure to eat your green vegetables to get your daily dose of chlorophyll.

 

Cruciferous Vegetables:

There have been many studies indicating that cruciferous vegetables may help to prevent thyroid cancer. Cruciferous vegetables include cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, kale, turnip greens, watercress, bok choy, arugula, cauliflower, and mustard greens. It is best to eat them raw to absorb their phytonutrients.

 

Remember: Always listen to your body, especially when you change your diet. Include these foods in a well-balanced, plant-based diet and see if your thyroid improves.

This Veggie Can Help To Improve Your Visionhttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/this-veggie-can-help-to-improve-your-vision/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/this-veggie-can-help-to-improve-your-vision/#comments Thu, 11 Jan 2018 12:00:44 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75726 Did you know that you simply changing your diet can help to naturally improve your eyesight? Make sure you eat this veggie for extra help!

In recent years, Americans have been developing more vision disorders and conditions. A lot of these conditions are diet-related, meaning that you can naturally improve your vision or help prevent the development of these conditions/disorders. In fact, there is increasing evidence that proper nutrition is strongly linked to better eye health.

 

What Foods To Eat?

You have to do more than eat fruits and veggies that promote eye health. You can’t eat these vegetables and continue eating unhealthy foods. The foods that promote healthier eyes won’t have a beneficial effect if you eat dairy products, processed foods, meats, meat products, junk foods, and refined sugars. The body won’t be able to properly absorb the nutrients because it will be trying too hard to process the other junk.

 

What you need to eat is collard greens. We aren’t talking about collard greens that are cooked with bacon fat. We are talking about either blending collard greens in smoothies, lightly sautéing them in a little olive oil, or using the leaves as a wrap while you are cleansing. They have amazing nutrients, such as magnesium, vitamins A, B, C & K, iron, calcium, folate, and potassium.

 

Eye Health:

One cup of sautéed collard greens contains about 771 micrograms of vitamin A, which exceeds the recommended daily amount for women; the average female requires 700 micrograms and the average male requires 900 micrograms. In addition to benefiting your eyes, vitamin A is beneficial for healthy skin, teeth, and mucus membranes. Collar greens also contain lutein, which has been known to decrease the risk of macular degeneration. This nutrient helps to filter out U.V. rays, so it is almost like a natural pair of sunglasses.

 

Folate:

A lot of people take folic acid, but getting the natural source of folate is much better. Folate helps with the production of new cells! Collard greens are rich in folate (177 micrograms per cup), which helps to support a healthy nervous system and can even reduce the risk of some birth defects. According the CDC, folate can also reduce the risk of heart defects and cleft lip.

 

If you need a little inspiration for how use collard greens in a healthier way, try making the following recipes.

 

Collard Wraps With Avocado & Sunflower Seed Paste:

You’ll be saying , “That’s a wrap” when you make this simple recipe. And that was terrible. When you make the sunflower seed paste, feel free to add your favorite spices to make it more interesting. You can use a little olive oil, chili powder, paprika, sea salt, pepper, and a little garlic to make it taste like chicken/tuna salad.
