To Bee, or Not to Bee – That is, Indeed, the Question!

Bees, bees, those busy bees! Amazingly, these little creatures are responsible for pollinating almost 75% of the 100 crop species that provide virtually all of our global food supplies (90 percent of it). Many vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes and seed crops are dependent on pollination, and most of that is done by wild bees. As stated by Achim Steiner, UN Undersecretary-General and UNEP’s Executive Director: “The way humanity manages or mismanages its nature-based assets, including pollinators, will in part define… Continue reading

Prostate Health

Gentlemen, are you making several nighttime bathroom trips? Or having difficulty “getting the flow” going? As men approach mid-life, they often begin to develop a condition called benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Benign prostatic hypertrophy is an enlargement of the prostate gland, which is a small, walnut-sized gland encircling the urethra. It enlarges due to the effects of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a hormone made from testosterone. DHT causes the cells to enlarge and to also multiply. The enlarged prostate ends up obstructing… Continue reading

Ginkgo – “Living Fossil”

The Ginkgo tree is one of the oldest living species of trees on the planet, dating back over 300 million years.

This boosts the brain’s metabolism of glucose, its primary source of fuel, thereby enhancing mental focus and the ability to concentrate. Diminished cerebral circulation can also result… Continue reading
