What and How Not To Eat If You Want To Stay Looking Young!!

So organic pillow hugger!! You are getting your beauty sleep, drinking plenty of filtered water, and getting the excercise in, so are you doing everything possible?

Nutrition, not age, determines the body’s internal chemistry, and that chemistry determines, in large part, the quality and resiliency of virtually every organ, cell and system in the body. If your diet is poor and missing essential nutrients, then it doesn't matter what else you do, your body will age beyond its years.
In our next article we will discuss what you should eat, but in this one we'll just give you a quick heads up on some foods that speed up aging. Just to note though, the odd bad food isn't going to make a huge differenbce, but it's daily habits that can stack up and cause problems.

1. Cut out Transfats
Transfats in fast foods and supermarket processed food is a huge offender. It acts in the body by increasing inflammation, and damaging your chromosomes, at the same time it reduces cell to cell communication which is bad news for your body. Being a man made molecule it is unantural to the body and causes enormous damage. Try to cut out anything that says it has hydrogenated ingerdients in it.

2. Highly Refined Sugar

Its not easy when you're a cake lover like me, but sucrose and higly refined sugars actually cut down your bodies ability to repair itself. High levels of sugar cause glycosolation within the body, this is when sugar molecules start interfering with protein molecules and a multitude of problems such as oxidative stress occur. Unfortunately when one thing like this starts happening in the body, a multitude of oither effects can begin which are like hitting the fast forward button on aging; hearing damage, vision damage, catracts, heart complaints are all a result. Trade refined sugars for natural sugars wherever possible, honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, but not artificial sweeteners, as they do more damage than even the most refined sugars!

3. Refined Starcy Foods

Highly refined carbs, are things like white bread, white pasta, white rice, any carbs that have their wholeness stripped away from them. Eating carbs like these are the same as eating high sugar foods, they massively increase your insulin level in the body as your body rushes to digest them, and then you'll feel hungry again 30mins later. This can lead to type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome and heart disease. Instead stick to whole grains and legumes and veg. Much better for you.

 4. Waiting Until Your Hungry Before eating

When you are really hungry, your body releases a hormone called Ghrelin which urges your body to go out and stuff itself with food!!! So the result is that you over eat, as it takes 30mins for the hormone to switch off once you've started to eat. By that time you've already gorged yourself on too much food. Eat regularily and healthily, don't wait to be hungry.

5. Eating When You're Stressed

Cortisol in produced by your body under stress and directs the blood supply away from your stomach to deal with your stressful situation. In the meantime your food does not properly digest and ferments in your gut instead, also resulting in un wanted metabolites being absorbed into your bloodstream. Stress also disrupts the acidity level in your gut, making it less able to absorb vital nutrients such as vitamin B12. Cortisol also stops the body repairing itself, so all in all, stress and eating don't go together. Make sure you are relaxed when you eat, not rushing around or anxious.

So to sum up, how you eat is as important as what you eat. More about this to come in following weeks, but in the meantime, stick to a whole food natural diet for ultimate health.

Organic Cot Duvets for Children Over 12mths

Organic Cot Duvets are a great investment for babies whern they reach 12months of age. Before 12mths of age, babies should sleep in their cot with an organic cotton or wool blanket only and no pillow. But after 12mths, you can begin introducing an adjustable organic child pillow and also an organic cot duvet.

Both an organic cotton cot duvet or an organic wool cot duvet provides an excellent nights sleep, without the fear of baby being exposed to any chemicals that are traditionally present in high street duvets. Chemicals that are nasty for your child, may include fire retardants, polyfoam based polyester fills which are plastic based and off gas over time.

Wool is a particularily beneficial fibre to have in an organic cot duvet as wool has been clinically proven to increase your REM sleep which is the most restorative part of your sleep cycle. Wool is also dustmite repellant due to its high lanolin content.

However, if your child suffers from allergies to animal hair, the organic cotton cot duvet is an excellent choice, as it gives your child all the security of chemical free sleep, coupled with excellent temperature regulation. You can also wash this duvet at high temperatures on a spin free cycle, that allows dustmites to be eradicated.

Our organic cot duvets are the finest quality. Made with a very high grade of organic cotton for duvets, which is rich and silky, the stitching is also of superior quality, as are the organic fillings which are mechanically cleaned and protected from any chemical exposure. All our duvets and beddings are ECO TEST certified organic for complete peace of mind.

An essential investment for any family raising their children in a healthy as possible environment.

What Is a Real Natural Latex Mattress?

Many people talk about the benefits of a natural latex mattress but few really know what one is , and the difference between what is genuinely natural and what is just really synthetic  latex labelled as natural.

Well here's a quick heads up on what a 'Latex Mattress' is.

Latex is the solid form of rubber milk that comes from the Hevea Brasiliensis (rubber) tree which are mainly grown in South East Asia, our Latex comes from Sri lanka and has been certified as Organic. When untampered with, it remains 100% pure and is just basically a biological plant based material. It is both biodegradable and recyclable, as well as being mould, mildew and dust mite resistant. Its flammability is low and it has no off gassing associated with it. Unlike synthetic latex however, it is more costly to produce than petroleum based foams, and thus is only used in its pure form by specialist organic furniture companies. Real Natural Latex mattresses can be made via the dunlop method or Talalay, but the Talalay method allows chemical additives to be added more easily. Some pure natural latex has been produced via the Talalay method of production, but its more expensive. In order to keep a real natural latex mattress pure, fire retardant chemicals are not added to it, and only wool or sometimes natural graphite would be used to non-toxically and non-chemically meet fire safety regs. We only use pure 100% clean dunlop latex with wool at buyOrganics.

What Is Synthetic Latex?

 Most high street furniture manufacturers, like to play around with the latex due to its cost, and add various chemicals to cheapen it,  so that less of the more expensive rubber is used and more fillers, these may include polyurethane in the form of polyurethane foam  (petrochemical based) which is what most furniture is made from. Poly foam contains 2 main ingredients polyols (such as Propylene oxide) and diisocyanates ( such as Toluene diisocyanate ). Both of these have been proven to cause mammary tumours. Toluene is also a neurotoxin which off gases over time as the mattress breaks down releasing chemicals into the air and into normal house dust.  Poly foam is also highly flammable and requires that fire retardant chemicals be added to the foam also to make it more fire safe. Another additive commonly used  is styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR). The chemical styrene is toxic to the lungs, liver, and brain. Synthetic additives have to be further added to stabilize it. Most synthetic latex mattresses contain a combination, so either 70% natural latex and 30% SBR or natural latex and polyfoam. But manufacturers can call it natural. You have to digg below the surface if you want to know if its real!


Is A Real Natural Latex Mattress Worth the Money?

If your health is important to you then A 100% pure natural latex mattress is definitely worth the investment, as it will not off gas or breakdown, creating toxic house dust. It will be comfy and supportive and the best sleeping experience ever, whilst also not exposing you to daily and nightly dangers and long term illness.

Food Additives That Increase Your Chances of Getting Cancer

Most of the supermarket shelves are packed with processed food, with a multitude of ingredients that you couldn't even pronounce. Well here's a list of 13 additives that leave you vulnerable to developing cancer. When I looked at the list i wondered how the hell I could avoid them and what is really safe to eat.......

Found in

Fat-free potato chips
Depletion of fat-soluble vitamins and carotenoids. Side effects include oily anal leakage
Brominated vegetable oil (aka BVO)
Sports drinks and citrus-flavored sodas
Competes with iodine for receptor sites in the body, which can lead to hypothyroidism, autoimmune disease, and cancer. The main ingredient, bromine, is a poisonous, corrosive chemical, linked to major organ system damage, birth defects, growth problems, schizophrenia, and hearing loss
Potassium bromate (aka brominated flour)
Rolls, wraps, flatbread, bread crumbs, and bagel chips
See bromine above. Associated with kidney and nervous system disorders, gastrointestinal discomfort
Breads, frozen dinners, boxed pasta mixes, and packaged baked goods
