How Can Enzymes Reverse The Aging Process
If you Google, “How To Find The Fountain of Youth”, you would probably see pages after pages of some mythical place where many people have died on their quest to locate it. But what if I was to say an actual Fountain of Youth can be found in your body and more specifically, in certain foods? Would you be shocked or surprised; this has to be a joke, right? Where can you get this magical elixir to help reverse the aging process we all experience? You can find them via nutrition, and these miraculous catalysts to better and more healthful aging are called enzymes.
If you want to live a longer life, then it's important for you to learn more about enzymes and the benefits of taking enzymes. These are the secret "potions". Do you know what enzymes are, what the functions of an enzyme are, or what is the definition of an enzyme?
Children Need Probiotics For Better Gut Health
Do kids need probiotics? Is it important for children to take probiotic supplements or eat probiotic foods? How about kombucha? Should kids be drinking kombucha or other fermented drinks? This is definitely one of the top 5 questions I receive when a parent wants to know whether it's important for their son or daughter to take probiotics or drink Jared's Kombucha or Jared's Kefir Soda. And in 90% of the situations, my response is always the same... a definite "yes".
It's important for me to throw a couple of caveats in there before I give a resounding "yes" (every family is different in terms of what they choose to eat and how they provide for their children), but from an overall perspective, a strong healthy gut is vitally important to a child during it's growing years, and probiotics and fermented foods can assist in that.
Intermittent Fasting Can Improve Digestion
I like to intermittent fast and eat only fruits on Sundays. The weekends for me in general, are a bit different than the rest of the week. Why? Because I like to think that it's a day to start over... a new week to cleanse my body and start fresh... a fast of sorts. I have a few routines I do that I purposefully done on this day: I have my own teeth cleaning kit, I wash my hair, and from a eating and digestion standpoint, I really focus on only eating fruits up till around 6 in the evening. I shop in the mornings, buy organic fruits when possible, and if the rinds can be eaten, I do that as well. So what is the purpose?⠀
The first reason is to give my digestion a bit of a break; it's a fasting of sorts. But the other reason is because I truly love fruit and realize that, from an enjoyment standpoint, I could eat it everyday. The bountiful harvest I picked up from the store in the mornings or from the farmers market the day before is one of beauty, colorful fruits filling the rainbow. But there is another reason.⠀
It's one of the few foods that can regenerate itself via the seed and from a philosophical standpoint, I like to look at it differently than other foods we eat. Most people eat foods hastily, are impatient and are not very mindful of what they put into their mouths. But on a Sunday, with colorful fruits, I try to focus (and for me it is very hard) on taking this bounty and starting something anew for the week. It can be a new friendship, or a new idea, or a new habit. Can be ANYTHING.. just new. So how do I represent that with fruits? Every week, I'll randomly take a few of the seeds I grab and plant them in paper cups. Many (and I mean many) times, I have failed, but there are a few that have sprouted and grown: an avocado, a pear, a lemon... ⠀
So next time you grab a piece of fruit. Look at the seeds, and rather than chunking it in the trash, take a few seconds and think about a new life it could bring. Just like fasting, you are hitting the reset button. When you combine a fruit seed and your own fasting schedule, you can look at it as starting something new today, friends.
