Iron – Benefits, Deficiency Symptoms And Food Sources

Iron is a vital component of hemoglobin, which transports oxygen to the various tissues of the body.

Linoleic acid (omega-6), linolenic acid (omega-3) and arachidonic acid (this is formed from linoleic, linolenic acids) are indispensable for the biochemistry of the body. There are many forms of omega-3 fatty acids including alpha- linolenic acid (ALA) which is a precursor to many other important omega-3 fatty acids. Gamma-linolenic acid […]

Homemade Kefir Vs Commercial Store Bought Kefir

Kefir bought at the store (commercial kefir) is quite different in composition, flavor and cost to the kefir made at home from genuine kefir grains.
