How Many Products Do You Use Daily?

On average, women use 9 personal care products. Which exposes you to around 126 unique ingredients (give or take a dozen)… every day. And while Europe has banned over 1000 ingredients in personal care products, the United States has only banned 11 ingredients!

Wow, right?! That means there’s a good chance you’re being exposed to chemicals and perhaps even carcinogens in your skincare products every day!

Anti-Aging Secret of Pomegranates Finally Revealed

Anti-Aging Secret of Pomegranates Finally Revealed: A molecule in pomegranates, generated by gut microflora, enables muscle cells to protect themselves against one of the major causes of aging.


Anti-Aging Secret of Pomegranates Finally Revealed

Posted on July 12, 2016, 6 a.m. in Anti-Aging Research Science Functional Foods GI-Digestive
A molecule in pomegranates, generated by gut microflora, enables muscle cells to protect themselves against one of the major causes of aging.
Until recently, the scientific evidence that pomegranates are truly the superfood that we’ve all been led to believe has been unsubstantial. To add to this, some questionable marketing tactics have raised doubts as well. A team of researchers from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the life science company Amazentis decided to investigate the fruit more closely and discovered that there is a molecule within pomegranates that is transformed by microbes in the gut, allowing muscle cells to protect themselves against one of the major causes of aging.
Mitochondria are the powerhouses of cells, containing inner compartments that are no longer capable of carrying out their vital function as they age. The dysfunctional mitochondria accumulate within the cell since the cells are unable to recycle them. This affects the health of many tissues, including muscles, which become gradually weaker with time. This buildup of mitochondria is also believed to be a potential cause in other diseases of aging, such as Parkinson’s disease.
The researchers identified a molecule, urolithin A, that was able to reboot the cell’s ability to recycle the components of the dysfunctional mitochondria on it’s own. "It's the only known molecule that can relaunch the mitochondrial clean-up process, otherwise known as mitophagy," said Patrick Aebischer, co-author of the study. "It's a completely natural substance, and its effect is powerful and measurable."
The researchers at first tested their hypothesis on the nematode C. elegans (worms). This is a common approach for aging testing, as after just 8-10 days it’s already considered elderly. They found that the lifespan of worms exposed to urolithin A increased by more than 45% as compared to the control group. When they then tested the molecule on rodents, they found a large reduction in the number of mitochondria, which indicated that a hearty cellular recycling process was occurring. They also found that the older mice (around 2 years old), showed 42% more endurance when running than mice of the same age that were in the control group.
It should be noted that the fruit itself does not contain the miracle molecule, but rather its precursor. That molecule is converted into urolithin A by microbes that are present in the intestine. Therefore, there can be a wide range of urolithin A produced, depending on the species of animal, as well as the flora present in the gut microbiome. In some cases none at all will be produced, so the pomegranate juice would be ineffective. For these cases, however, the researchers are already working on developing a solution. They founded a start-up company, Amazentis, which has come up with a method to deliver finely calibrated doses of urolithin A and they’re currently conducting their first clinical trials testing humans.

    How to avoid dry skin

    The Suspects: AlcoholCoffee, Poor Diet
    In the short term, alcohol can cause dehydration, which can cause dry skin.
    “For women, the recommendation is no more than two standard drinks a day on average,” says dermatologist Ann-Maree Kurzydlo, who recommends limiting consumption and alternating alcoholic drinks with water. “One or two alcohol-free days should be had per week.”
    Caffeine is a diuretic and can also lead to dehydration of the skin - so steer clear of energy drinks as well as tea and coffee.
    Meanwhile, dietitian Dr Joanna McMillan says diet can also play havoc with skin.
    “A lack of fats in the diet can lead to dry skin, whereas good fats such as oily fish, avocado and olive oil deliver fat-soluble nutrients, are anti-inflammatory and promote skin health,” she says.
    “Certain nutrients are important for the skin including vitamins A, C, E and many antioxidants. A diet rich in plant foods – veg, fruit, nuts, seeds, legumes and wholegrains – boosts intake of these factors.”

    Top 5 Safe Cosmetics Tips




    No one wants to learn that their trusted personal care products are made with hazardous chemicals. Thankfully, safer alternatives are available and there are steps you can take to reduce toxic exposures in your home and protect the health of your family.
    1. Simplify
    Choose products with simpler ingredient lists and fewer synthetic chemicals. Avoid synthetic fragrance by skipping products with “fragrance” on the label, and use fewer products overall.
    2. DIY
    Some personal care products are easy to make yourself, and this can be a great project for a party. Make your own sugar or salt scrubs or body oils, using simple, organic ingredients.
    3. Research Products YourselfSince the beauty industry is largely unregulated, it’s up to you to do your own research to find the safest products. There are no legal standards for personal care products labeled as “pure,” “natural” or “organic,” so look beyond the marketing claims and read labels carefully.
    4. Use apps like Think Dirty
    To find out whether your go-to products are safe or not, try Think Dirty’s shop clean app. This easy-to-use resource ranks the safety of specific products on a scale of 1-10 and offers up cleaner solutions.
    5. Get Involved
    While it’s possible – and becoming easier – to reduce toxic exposures in your home by buying safer products, it’s not possible to shop our way out of this problem. Even if they’re not in your home, toxic chemicals from personal care products can still end up in our air and drinking water, and in the homes of people who don’t have access to safe products.
    The solution: help us change the rules of the game! It shouldn’t be legal to sell cosmetics that contain dangerous ingredients. We’re working to pass new laws that protect our health and give consumers better information to make smart choices.
    Stay informed, speak up and spread the word—all in our Take Action section.

    10 health benefits that prove the power of kiwi fruits on our skin and bodies

    Packed with more vitamin C than an equivalent amount of orange, the bright green flesh of the kiwifruit speckled with tiny black seeds adds a dramatic tropical flair to any fruit salad. 

    The kiwifruit is a small fruit approximately 3 inches long and weighing about four ounces. Its green flesh is almost creamy in consistency with an invigorating taste reminiscent of strawberries, melons and bananas, yet with its own unique sweet flavor.

    Sunscreen’s Impacts on the Environment and Our Health – Stream2Sea Answers, “What is Reef-Safe,” as the Only Mineral-Based Brand Tested and Proven Safe to Coral Larvae



    Wauchula, FL, April 27, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Dr. Craig Down’s of Haereticus Laboratory
     conducted extensive research analyzing the impact of sunscreen products on coral
    reef systems. His work, presented at the Coral Reef Symposium in Hawaii in June of 2016,
     brought researchers, formulators of personal care products, marine
    biologists, and divers to a greater awareness of this growing concern. These findings, now well-documented, were a part of the impetus that motivated a group of Hawaiian legislators, including state Senator Will Espero to propose a bill which would ban products containing chemicals found to be harmful to coral reefs and marine life.

    The chemical most often referenced in this list of chemicals is “Oxybenzone.” It has become the buzz word over the past several months in news reports and among producers of products that contain the UV inhibitor as an active ingredient. Publications continually surface with titles such as, “Is your sunscreen oxybenzone-free?” It is a benzophenone, an endocrine disruptor and has been proven time and time again, even in student science fair projects, to kill corals as well as sprouting plants, and is the most common UV inhibitor used in sunscreen formulations.

    It is not, however, the only benzophenone on the block. There is another named, “Avobenzone,” which many companies use in an effort to state they are “oxybenzone free,” yet it also carries risks. It too
    should be avoided in formulation and use. To be truly reef-friendly, other
    ingredients to avoid include:

    Octinoxate / Octyl methoxycinnamate
    Homosalate
    Octocrylene
    Methylisothiazolinone
    Cylcopentasiloxane / Cyclomethicone
    Camphor Derivatives
    Parabens
    NANO particle Titanium Dioxide
    NANO particle Zinc Oxide
    Dispersions of zinc sometimes called ClearZinc as they May contain nano-particles,
     or micronized which can be agglomerated nano-particles

    Mineral-based Stream2Sea sunscreen and body care products, are formulated
     by Autumn Blum, a cosmetic chemist and certified dive instructor who has been
     an ambassador to the oceans and marine life throughout her award-winning career.
     She created Stream2Sea specifically to protect the coral reefs, marine life, shore life,
    waters (both fresh and salt) and the health of people.

    During formulation it was her goal to prove, beyond a shadow of doubt that her
     products were truly safe in these environments. She began with formulations
     using popular natural standards and then submitted to third party testing.
    For every formula that was found harmful, she went back to the drawing board
    and started over. Not until she had products that were proven safe in an
     aquatic environment, safe to down to C.elegans and coral larvae and
    readily biodegradable, did she release them.

    Currently, Stream2Sea is the only mineral-based brand that has submitted
    its products to this level of rigorous testing and standards. The health of the
    planet is the primary concern for Stream2Sea, focusing much of their work,
    research and efforts in clean-water standards, purity, and the understanding
     of water toxicity. Stream2Sea strongly believes that consumers have the right
     to know how the ingredients in the products they use can impact them and the
     world around them. They carry a policy of total-transparency in ingredient disclosure
     and packaging. They also package their products in sugar cane resin tubing to
     reduce their carbon footprint by avoiding petroleum-based plastics.

    Stream2Sea’s concern for the environment extends to their employees as well,
    wanting to work with individuals who have studies, work history or volunteer
     efforts towards environmental issues. Heather Lahey-Jeffries, Director of
     Consumer Outreach, has been invited to participate on a discussion panel
    in Washington, DC on May 9, 2017 at the Blue Horizon Summit for sunscreen
    and coral reefs. Her background in engineering working with water treatment
    plants, power plants, public water and environmental writing opened the door
     for this honor. Other esteemed members of this panel include Dr. Craig Downs
    and Joseph DiNardo, VP and Chief Scientific Officer of Priori.

    Stream2Sea has set a new standard for EcoConscious sunscreen and skincare.
     Along with standard human safety and SPF tests, Stream2Sea products are
     proven to be biodegradable in both salt and fresh water. Formulated with
    powerful antioxidant blends and certified non-nano titanium dioxide to protect
    skin from sun damage. The product line includes sunscreens, conditioning
    shampoo and body wash, leave-in conditioner, nourishing body lotion and
     lip balms. Stream2Sea products are currently available online at www.Stream2Sea.com
     or ask for them at your favorite health food store, dive shop or outdoor retailer.
