July 22, 2015

Taking a nature walk can boost your mental health.

Carotenoids Show Promise for Cancer

June 5, 2015

Apricots are an excellent source of carotenoidsCarotenoids are a group of phytonutrients (plant nutrients) that provide the yellow-orange-red pigments found in foods like carrots, sweet potatoes, apricots, mangoes, pumpkin, tomatoes, papaya, peaches, squash, and other similarly colored foods.

It’s that time of year again:  the season of itchy eyes, sneezing, runny noses, and breathing troubles for anyone who suffers from allergies.  While it is tempting to run for the decongestants and anti-histamines and lock yourself indoors, Mother Nature offers help in the form of a little-known herb that can significantly improve most allergy symptoms.
