Cleansing is often associated with drinking a specific concoction or running to the restroom day and night. While that may be the case with other cleanses, the same cannot be said for the Dherbs Full Body Cleanse. Focusing on all of the body’s major organs and systems instead of the colon in particular, the Full Body Cleanse can help naturally boost the immune system, improve energy levels, aid with mental clarity, and assist the body with releasing weight between 10-30 pounds.

 

A.D. Dolphin, the CEO of Dherbs Inc., clarified all of the aforementioned information during his recent appearance on Dish Nation. There is no reason to be afraid of cleansing; rather, using the Full Body Cleanse gives people the opportunity to reclaim their health and lose weight in the process. Since a high percentage of people have already abandoned their New Year’s weight loss goals, now is the perfect time to cleanse! See the interview below.

The Best Sweeteners To Have On The Keto Diet https://www.dherbs.com/articles/the-best-sweeteners-to-have-on-the-keto-diet/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/the-best-sweeteners-to-have-on-the-keto-diet/#comments Sat, 23 Feb 2019 10:46:13 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=91989 Is it possible to use sweeteners while on the ketogenic diet? Follow these sweetener guidelines to help your body remain in ketosis.

The ketogenic diet requires people to severely cut back on sugars, starches, processed foods, and high-carb foods. Continuing to eat these foods will kick the body out of ketosis, and your quest to lose weight will remain difficult. It can be confusing to navigate the right path that will keep your body in ketosis, especially when it comes to sweeteners, which should still be used in moderation. There are, however, sweeteners that are extremely low in net carbs and calories.

 

The Role Of Sweeteners On Keto:

The most important thing to remember about sweeteners, in relation to the keto diet, is to always use them sparingly. You aren’t about to load up on stevia just because it is on the keto-approved sweetener list. Sweeteners can easily raise blood sugar and kick the body out of ketosis, but a little monk fruit in your fat bomb coffee recipe will be just fine.

 

A Quick Guide To Sweeteners

When it comes to the sweeteners (the few that you can have) that you put into your body on the keto diet, it is integral to educate yourself on their various forms. The three big types of sweeteners to be aware of are broken down below.

Artificial Sweeteners:

As the name suggests, artificial sweeteners are synthesized and do not originate in natural sources. Originally used to sweeten foods and beverages without adding calories, artificial sweeteners like aspartame, saccharin, and sucralose are not healthy for the body, and they can increase your risk of metabolic syndrome. Even though these are actually marketed to people on the keto diet, we recommend avoiding them for an overall healthier body.

Sugar Alcohols:

Derived from sugar, sugar alcohols typically contain half the amount of calories as white sugar. They are comprised of sugar and alcohol molecules, and they act like dietary fiber. The most common types of sugar alcohols include glycerol, maltitol, erythritol, and sorbitol/glucitol.

Natural Sweeteners:

Unlike artificial sweeteners, natural sweeteners are derived from natural plant sources. The most popular natural sweeteners include raw honey, monk fruit, grade A 100% maple syrup, coconut sugar, and stevia. Not all of these sugars are low in carbohydrates, meaning that only a select few are keto-friendly.

 

One last thing to remember is that one must aim to only consume 20-30 grams of net carbs per day to remain in ketosis. You can keep your net carb intake down by eating high fiber foods like non-starchy vegetables. Try these keto-approved sweeteners to keep your body in ketosis.

 

Stevia:

Stevia is considered to be a nonnutritive sweetener, meaning that it contains little to no carbs or calories. It contains about 5 grams of net carbs per 100 grams, which is a lot of stevia. You probably will never use that much at once in your life. This is because a little goes a long way, due to the fact that stevia is 200-400 times sweeter than cane sugar. Not all stevia products are created equal, so opt for the most natural products when available.

 

Monk Fruit:

Extracted from the monk fruit, monk fruit sweetener contains powerful antioxidants known as mogrosides. These antioxidants can help stimulate the release of insulin, which may improve the elimination of sugar out of the bloodstream, aiding healthy blood sugar management. It is a keto-friendly sweetener that has a glycemic index (GI) of zero, yet it is 300-400 times sweeter than cane sugar. When you purchase monk fruit extract, make sure that it isn’t mixed with molasses or can sugar, because that can increase that calorie and carb content.

 

Yacon Syrup:

Yacon syrup is naturally derived from the root of the yacon plant. Containing a high percentage of prebiotics, yacon syrup works to increase beneficial bacteria in the digestive system. It measures as 1 on the GI scale, and can be found in many health food stores, as well as online. When using it, you only need about a teaspoon.

Does The Key To Balancing Blood Sugar Lie In The Gut? https://www.dherbs.com/articles/does-the-key-to-balancing-blood-sugar-lie-in-the-gut/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/does-the-key-to-balancing-blood-sugar-lie-in-the-gut/#comments Thu, 21 Feb 2019 19:38:18 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=92060 According to new Mayo Clinic research, we may now have a better understanding of what diet is most beneficial for diabetics.

If you are a person living with diabetes, it can be difficult to figure out exactly what foods keep your blood sugar levels in check. While there are myriad beneficial foods for diabetics, it is often wise to take a look at the bigger picture, i.e. your entire diet, and assess what changes need to be made.

 

Everything that you put in your body should be of great importance, no matter if you are living with diabetes or not. Roughly 100 million American adults are currently living with diabetes or pre-diabetes, and this number is only on the rise. Having diabetes exponentially increases the risk of kidney failure, stroke, heart disease, amputation of toes, vision loss, or premature death. All of this is to say that finding ways to efficiently manage blood sugar levels is more important now than ever before.

 

Recently, a study revealed that understanding how individualized diets can impact the gut microbiome may be the best way to control blood sugar levels. To clarify, the microbiome refers to the trillions of bacteria that live in the body. The study followed 300 people for six days. Each person ate a bagel and cream cheese for breakfast and whatever he/she wanted for the rest of the day. The researchers collected stool samples, glycemic responses via blood glucose monitors, and information about exercise frequency and food intake throughout the study.

 

When considering carbohydrates and calories consumed, researchers were able to predict blood sugar response 32%-40% of the time. However, factoring in age, genetics, and each individual’s gut microbiome, researchers could accurately predict blood glucose responses 62% of the time. That’s a huge number, when you consider the percentage of people living with diabetes.

 

It is possible that the key to balancing blood sugar lies in the gut, but more research needs to be conducted. What the study did find, however, is that giving blanket nutritional advice for diabetics is an oversimplified approach to helping them manage blood glucose levels. This is because each person responds differently to different foods. One person can eat carbs and feel energized, while another person’s response to a carb-heavy meal is fatigue.

 

The point of the study was to help change the advice given to diabetics. Cutting calories, losing weight, and eating fewer carbohydrates are the current approaches for controlling blood sugar levels. It seems that this research is indicating that more personalized treatments will be able to better address blood sugar issues. By increasing the amount of beneficial bacteria in the body, a person can experience improved digestion, better immune function, and higher energy levels, in addition to better blood glucose response. To improve your microbiome, read our article about prebiotics here.

 

With the growing knowledge of using alternative approaches to naturally remedy a variety of conditions, the hope is for people to not listen to general advice. Always remember that an approach that works for one person may not be right for the next person.

3 Tasty Recipes To Celebrate National Grain-Free Day https://www.dherbs.com/articles/3-tasty-recipes-to-celebrate-national-grain-free-day/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/3-tasty-recipes-to-celebrate-national-grain-free-day/#comments Thu, 21 Feb 2019 17:52:33 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=92231 We hope to inspire people to eat meals that aren’t replete with grains, so use these recipes to celebrate National Grain-Free Day.

For a great many people, grains have to be included in their diet. Some people can’t imagine a diet without grains, while others have conditions or intolerances that require them to limit grain consumption, or eliminate grains from their diet entirely. National Grain-Free Day hopes to educate people about food intolerances, while simultaneously exhibiting the many possibilities of grain-free eating.

 

Grain Fact: Corn is a vegetable, grain, and fruit, all at the same time. The kernel is considered to be a grain, but corn on the cob is considered to be a vegetable. In case that wasn’t complicated enough, a lot of grains (like popcorn) are considered to be a fruit. The reason is because they come from the seed of the plant.

 

Due to the intense processing and genetically engineered nature of grains, a high percentage of people are grain-intolerant. Grains in America are not what they used to be, which explains why eating pasta in Italy, for example, won’t yield the same bodily reactions as eating processed, enriched pasta in America. Many people pass off bloating, bowel inconsistency, headaches, or mouth ulcers as nothing, but these are common signs of grain intolerance or gluten-sensitivity. If you suspect that you are intolerant or sensitive to grains, experiment with an elimination diet to determine the causes of your system. Read more about an elimination diet here.

 

To help celebrate National Grain-Free Day, try some of the following grain-free recipes below.

We understand the pain of not being able to eat your favorite foods while you are cleansing. The sight of chocolate ice cream may make you weak, and a plate of meat and potatoes may cause you to shed a few tears, longing for just one bite of warm food. While you can’t replicate a plate of meat and potatoes, there is a culinary tool that can introduce you to a new form of pasta.

 

The vegetable spiralizer is an inexpensive kitchen tool that may become your new best friend during your cleansing experience. The spiralizer can transform a boring zucchini, carrot, beet, or cucumber into a plate of curly, loopy noodle deliciousness. Toss these curled ribbons in cleanse-approved sauces and you just found yourself a pasta substitute that you may continue to eat after you finish cleansing.

 

Spiralizers will not cost you an arm and a leg; in fact, you should only pay about $15-$20 for a spiralizer. Most importantly, do not purchase the handheld spiralizer because it is not as effective as the stationary one that you can place on the countertop. You get more leverage and have and easier time spiralizing with the stationary one.

 

Don’t resort to actual pasta when you feel like you can’t take another salad. Grab that spiralizer out of the cabinet and let it save you from going off the rails. To start you off on your journey toward spiralizing success, we are providing you with some of our favorite zucchini noodle recipes below. Let us know how you like them in the comments below.

Why You Need These 2 Immune Boosting Herbs In Your Life https://www.dherbs.com/articles/why-you-need-these-2-immune-boosting-herbs-in-your-life/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/why-you-need-these-2-immune-boosting-herbs-in-your-life/#comments Tue, 19 Feb 2019 17:45:01 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=61677 Don't let the weather or sickly people take you down this winter. Use these two amazing herbs to help naturally boost your immune system.

The immune system has to work extra hard in the winter months. Viruses and allergens are in the air and being passed around everywhere. To avoid getting sick this winter, there are things you can do to keep yourself healthy by naturaly strengthening the immune system. Turn to these immune-boosting herbs so that sickness doesn’t take you down.

 

While there are many foods and herbs that can boost your immune system, we are recommending the following two herbs, which have been hailed for their powerful healing benefits for many years.

 

Echinacea:

Echinacea is an amazing herb, which has antimicrobial properties, and it is great for the immune system. All varieties of echinacea have phenol compounds that work to protect the plant from UV radiation damage and infections. The active substances in phenols control enzymes and cell receptors, and their active antioxidants make them great for keeping human cells healthy.

When it comes to the amount of echinacea you should have, it depends on what form you are using. About 6-9ml of echinacea extract is a great daily average to consume, especially when you are sick. Alternatively, you may find it more soothing, especially during the colder months, to drink a cup of echinacea tea three times a day to enhance the immune system. This herb appears to be most effective if you take it as soon as you notice flu or cold symptoms.

 

Astragalus:

Astragalus has been a popular herb in Chinese medicine because of its natural warming properties, which have been believed to enhance the flow of energy (chi). It is great for cleansing your lungs and maintaining lung health. Additionally, astragalus is beneficial for people who have recurring infections because it strengthens the immune system to better protect the body against pathogens.

The standard daily dose of astragalus root extract is 30g. Most extract bottles will have directions for use on the label. If you manage to get your hands on fresh astragalus, you can brew it into a tea.

If you don’t know by now, we’re in love with coconut oil. It is a rockstar ingredient, which contains nutrients that benefit the skin, hair, scalp, teeth, gums, and more. This article, however, is focused on why your hair deserves coconut oil. Regardless of what type of hair you have, putting coconut oil in your hair is better than damaging it with the harsh chemicals that are in most commercial hair products.

 

Reasons To Use Coconut Oil On Your Hair:

 

For best results, it is advised to apply the following hair treatments to the scalp and hair. Comb the treatments through your hair and massage them into your scalp for maximum nourishment.

 

Coconut Aloe Treatment For Hair Growth

Aloe vera is commonly used in commercial skin and hair care products because of its soothing nature. It also helps to fight dandruff and gives your hair added shine.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh aloe vera gel
  • 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt

Instructions:

  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until well combined.
  • Apply the entire mixture to your hair and scalp, combing the mixture through your hair.
  • Tie your hair up in a bun and so it can fit under a shower cap. Leave this on for two hours and then rinse with warm water. Use this twice a week.

 

Coconut Hair Mask For Shiny Hair:

Coconut oil and honey join forces to strengthen, moisturize, and add extra shine to your hair. Honey is an amazing conditioner that contributes to more volume and smoothness.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • ½ tablespoon virgin coconut oil, melted

Instructions:

  • Add the two ingredients to a small bowl and mix well.
  • Starting from the scalp, apply the mixture all the way to the ends of your hair. Use your fingers to massage the scalp and comb the mixture through your hair to evenly distribute it.
  • Put a shower cap on and leave the mixture in for about one hour. Rinse with warm water and shampoo to wash.

 

Coconut Oil And Lemon Juice For Dandruff:

If you have lemons, which you should always keep in your kitchen, dandruff relief may very well be in your sights. Fresh lemon juice helps to hydrate the scalp and balance the scalp’s pH level, helping to ward off dandruff.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Instructions:

  • Whisk the lemon juice and coconut oil in a small bowl.
  • Massage this mixture onto the scalp and leave it there for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and shampoo.

 

We hope you enjoy these coconut hair treatments and we want to know how they worked for you. Comment below to share your experience.
