Have you ever taken a chicory root before? This root is commonly known as a coffee substitute or as an additive for coffee. But what most of us don’t know is the amazing benefits it comes with.

Would you like to know more? Please go ahead and read.

Chicory – An Overview

Chicory or cichoriumintybus is a perennial plant with blue flowers. This is a herb with a lot of health benefits. There are many varieties of chicory plants grown – some for leaves and some for roots. The root of chicory is commonly used as a substitute for coffee, but it can also be used for treating conditions like loss of appetite, stomach upset, constipation, rapid heartbeat and many more.

Following are the amazing benefits of chicory root:

1. Digestive Support

The most common benefit of chicory is of digestion.

There are friendly bacteria or symbiotic bacteria such as lactobacillus and bifidobacteria in our intestine, which aid healthy digestion. These bacteria inhibit pathogens like candida and support our immune function.

Chicory also contains inulin, a powerful probiotic and soluble fibre. Inulin is present in all the plants, but chicory contains the highest amount of inulin. Inulin has the power to reduce the body’s acidity and can be helpful to prevent digestive problems like acid reflux and indigestion.

Studies have shown that chicory root increases the flow of bile, and this helps to break down fat, thus helping in digestion.

Chicory root extracts help to reduce digestive discomfort caused due to intestinal gastric problems.

2. Antioxidant Activity

All plants and herbs contain compounds called as phenols, and most of the phenols found in plants have anti-oxidant properties.

Chicory root is rich in polyphenols that make it a good anti-oxidant.

Being an anti-oxidant, it helps to remove toxins from the body, keeping the body clean and free from harmful substances.

3. Fights Against Harmful Organisms

Chicory root extracts are found to have anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties too, due to which it has the power to fight against harmful bacteria.

4. Good For The Liver

Kidneys and liver act as the major detoxifying channels in our body. The health benefits of chicory root include increased detoxification by stimulating diuresis and bile secretion.

Ancient Egyptians have been known to be using chicory to purify liver and blood.

Chicory has been used as a medicine for centuries, especially for detoxifying the liver. The studies conducted by the zoology department in Egypt have concluded that chicory has a promising role for halting oxidative stress and liver injury in certain situations.

Dried chicory roots can be used to prevent liver damage by treating jaundice.

It can also be used in the treatment of stones in gall and the liver. This is done by increasing the secretion of bile from the liver and gallbladder, thus promoting urination and excretion of harmful substances.

5. Heart Disease

Chicory root contains inulin, which, along with its digestive benefits, also helps to reduce the amount of bad cholesterol in the body.

LDL cholesterol is the bad cholesterol that causes blockage of atherosclerosis. The increase in the levels of LDL increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Inulin present in chicory also helps to lower blood pressure that occurs due to an increase in LDL cholesterol.

6. Reduces Arthritis Pain

Chicory root can be an effective remedy for joint problems like arthritis and rheumatism.

Various studies have shown that it contains anti-inflammatory properties, due to which it can reduce the pain caused by osteoarthritis.

It can also be used as a general anti-inflammatory agent for aches, muscle pain and joint soreness.

7. Weight Loss

Chicory contains inulin and oligo-fructose, which can be added to the diet to lose weight.

Chicory contains the highest concentration of inulin in the entire plant kingdom. Inulin, a soluble fibre, acts as an appetite suppressant. Inulin can give you a feeling of fullness, without raising blood sugar levels or increasing calories. These properties have created interest in inulin’s possible use for weight loss.

The presence of fructo-oligosaccharides in the plant encourages the development of beneficial bacteria in the intestine that help to restore the balance of microorganisms in the intestine, thereby leading to the proper functioning of the digestive system. The proper functioning of the digestive system is the key factor in all weight loss diets.

8. Constipation

Chicory root is a rich source of vitamin C, vitamin K, choline, and beta-carotene.

It contains soluble dietary fiber, called inulin, which is useful for preventing intestinal disorders and is said to be a great remedy for constipation and other digestive disorders.

Inulin promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestine, thereby promoting digestion and preventing constipation.

9. Immune System

Chicory has anti-bacterial properties and a number of other benefits that make it a powerful immune booster. It acts against various harmful bacteria, and the polyphenol compounds present in chicory act as anti-oxidants. These phenolic compounds are also believed to have the power to prevent cancer, especially breast and colorectal cancers.

10. Anxiety And Stress

Chicory is used as a natural sedative for the nervous system, and can reduce anxiety and ease the mind. This relieves the stress and dangerous effects it can have on the body.

Studies have shown that chicory extract acts as a sedative and an anti-inflammatory agent for the nervous system. For people suffering from nervous system disorders, this can reduce inflammation thereby relieving pain.

Chicory root extract can also be used as a sleep aid due to its sedative quality, and is a much better natural alternative to sleeping pills. Relieving stress and anxiety can be helpful to reduce chances of heart disease, hormonal imbalance, sleeplessness and premature aging.

Side Effects

Though chicory root is safe and well tolerated by many people, it might cause some allergic reactions in a few. If you are allergic to chicory or its products, avoid usage of chicory root products.

The Benefits of Arrowroot For Skin, Ulcers, Weight Loss and More

FCGCT Commentary: We highly recommend our energy program, LoveHasWon Body Temple Optimization to MASTER ENERGY, BALANCE THE BODY & FEEL GREAT! Visit the link below for more information

http://lovehaswonbodytempleoptimization.org/

By Saba

Arrowroot or arrowroot starch is a powdery product extracted from the roots of the arrowroot plant Maranta arundinaceae. The arrowroot plant or also known as ‘Ararot‘ in Hindi is native to South America. It is a small, perennial herb with broad, flat, ovate-shaped leaves and grows to a height of 3 to 5 feet. It is a small, perennial herb with broad, flat, ovate-shaped leaves and grows to a height of 3 to 5 feet. The root is underground and is a small, cylindrical-shaped, cream-white/light red tuber, covered with thin surface scales.

What Is Arrowroot Powder?

They contain about 23% starch. Before extracting the starch, they are washed and the scales are removed to avoid any disagreeable flavor. The roots are washed, drained, and reduced to a pulp by beating them in mortars. This milky liquid is passed through a coarse cloth and the insoluble, pure starch is allowed to settle at the bottom. This starch is dried in the sun or “drying house”, resulting in the formation of arrowroot powder. This powder is fine, clear white, and odorless, and is used as a thickening agent in food industries.

Arrowroot starch is mostly used as a thickener in foods such as puddings and sauces. Its thickening power is twice that of regular flour. It should be mixed with cold water before being added to a hot liquid to prevent clumping. It is also used in cookies and crackers as a substitute for regular flour and hence, is a great option for those who are gluten-intolerant. Arrowroot biscuits are available in stores and are believed to soothe the stomach.

Arrowroot Benefits For Health:

The easy digestibility and ability to mix well with a wide range of food ingredients make the arrowroot the most sought-after starch in infant formulas and confectionaries. In addition to its culinary uses, it offers several health benefits as given below.

1. Aids Digestion:

Arrowroot aids digestion and regulates the bowel movement. Its high starch content acts as a mild laxative for those suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. The demulcent effects of arrowroot powder can soothe the bowels in patients with irritable bowel syndrome. Arrowroot starch is also considered an effective remedy for diarrhea and a lot of other gastrointestinal ailments. It can relieve nausea and replace nutrients that are lost due to diarrhea and vomiting.

2. Maintains Acid And Alkali Balances:

Calcium ash is the only starch product present in arrowroot. This calcium chloride, in the form of calcium, is vital for the maintenance of proper acid and alkali balances in the human body.

3. Suitable For Infants:

Being easily digestible in comparison to other starches, it is suitable for infants. It can be made into a jelly to feed newly weaned infants. It can also be used as an alternative to breast milk as it is easily digestible.

4. Gluten-Free:

Arrowroot is a great alternative for those who are allergic to corn and gluten. It can be used as a substitute for wheat flour and is a popular ingredient in gluten-free baking.

5. Antidote For Poisoning:

Arrowroot is often used as an antidote for certain types of vegetable poison in some regions. Ground arrowroot rhizomes are applied over wounds and insect bites and are said to be effective in drawing out poison from the bites of scorpions, spiders, etc.

[Read: Benefits Of Horseradish]

6. Beneficial In Pregnancy:

Fresh roots are a good source of folates that are vital during pregnancy. A 100 gram serving of arrowroot provides about 338 µg or 84% of the daily required levels of folates. Along with vitamin B12, folate is an essential component in DNA synthesis and cell division. The adequate consumption of folate during the preconception periods and during pregnancy helps prevent neural tube defects and other congenital malformations in the offspring.

7. Facilitates Weight Loss:

Arrowroot is fat free and low in calories. This makes it beneficial for weight loss. You can conveniently use it in sauces and soups without worrying about increased fat content or calories.

8. Heart Health:

Arrowroot is an excellent source of potassium, which is an important component of cell and body fluids that help regulate the heart rate and blood pressure.

Arrowroot Skin Benefits:

Arrowroot is a great herbal remedy for treating various skin problems. It can be beneficial for your skin in the following ways.

9. Treatment Of Small Pox And Gangrene:

Arrowroot is an herbal treatment for small pox and gangrene that can cause skin infection and itchiness.

10. Baby Powder:

In South America, arrowroot starch is used as a baby powder. It is a lightweight, white powder, which, when applied to the skin, gives a soft and smooth feel.

11. Used In Moisturizers And Talcum Powders:

Arrowroot starch is used in talcum powders and moisturizers as a thickening agent. When used in cosmetics, it enables active ingredients to penetrate the upper levels of your skin as it has great moisture-absorbing qualities. Arrowroot is often used in body powders to make your skin silkier and smoother. It softens your skin by enabling it to absorb moisture.

12. Treatment Of Skin Problems:

Arrowroot powder is light, soft and absorbent. It is used in making body powders. When applied topically, it helps dry blemishes, rashes or other sores, or wounds.

13. Treatment Of Athlete’s Foot:

Arrowroot is used to control moisture while dealing with foot problems such as athlete’s foot. Since it does not possess antifungal properties, it is used for moisture control only.

14. Healing Qualities:

Arrowroot has great healing qualities. It is made into a poultice and applied topically to treat rhizomes, ulcers and wounds. In Africa, it is used as a source of nourishment and for treatment of sunburns.

Arrowroot Hair Benefits:

Arrowroot is widely used in cosmetic products as a thickening agent. Though not much is known about its benefits for hair, its nutritional value does make it beneficial in hair care.

15. Used In Hair Dyes:

Due to its excellent thickening properties and ability to mix with other ingredients, arrowroot is often used in hair dyes.

  •  Calories: Arrowroot is very low in calories. A 100 gram serving of fresh roots provides just 65 calories, which is less than that of potato, yam, cassava, etc. Its starch content is 80% amylopectin and 20% amylose.

  • Vitamins: Arrowroot is a rich source of vitamins. An eight-ounce serving of raw arrowroot provides 1% of the recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin A. As far as B-complex vitamins are concerned, it provides 22% of the RDI of thiamine, 8% of the RDI of riboflavin, and 19% of the RDI of niacin. These B-vitamins help your body break down food into energy. However, the processing of arrowroot reduces these nutrients drastically. Fresh arrowroot also provides 30% of the RDI of vitamin B6, 7% for pantothenic acid, and 192% for folate, while the flour contains just 1% of the RDI of vitamin B-6, 3% for pantothenic acid, and just 4% for folate.

  • Minerals: As far as minerals are concerned, arrowroot flour has a higher nutritional value than raw arrowroot. 8 ounces of fresh arrowroot contains 1% of the RDI of calcium and 20% of the RDI of manganese. A similar amount of arrowroot flour has 9% of the RDI of calcium and 53% of the RDI of manganese. It is an excellent source of potassium with a 100 gram serving providing 454 mg of this mineral, which is 10% of the RDI. It contains lesser amounts of other minerals like copper, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc.

  • Protein: Proteins are components of every part of your body, where they are broken down continuously. 8 ounces of raw arrowroot provides about 19% of the recommended daily intake of protein, while the same amount of arrowroot flour provides just 1% of the RDI of protein. In fact, it contains more protein than other tropical food sources like yam, potato, cassava, plantains, etc.

  • Other Nutrients: Arrowroot flour has a higher content of carbohydrates as well as dietary fiber. While the raw root contains 10% of the RDI of carbohydrates, the flour contains 67% of the RDI of this group. Similarly, the amount of fiber is 12% and 31% of the RDI for raw root and flour respectively.

Why an Alkaline Approach Can Successfully Treat Cancer

FCGCT Commentary: We highly recommend LoveHasWon Water ~ Pure Alkaline Water solution based on Dr. Emoto's Water Technology & Sacred Geometry. Visit the link below for more information

https://lovehaswonwater.com/

By: Nancy Elizabeth Shaw

In the 1930's, an interesting natural cancer treatment was proposed as a simple, effective answer to cancer – almost any cancer.  This treatment approach is not well known because it is considered alternative or experimental - or even dangerous[i] - by the medical and scientific community and hence has been referenced primarily in obscure publications outside the mainstream press.

This treatment approach is called alkaline therapy or pH therapy, and is based in part on observations of cultures without significant incidence of cancer[ii] and in part on scientific observations of and experimentation with cellular metabolism.[iii]

The principles of pH therapy are very simple.  The metabolism of cancer cells has a very narrow pH tolerance for cellular proliferation (mitosis), which is between 6.5 and 7.5.  As such, if you can interfere with cancer cell metabolism by either lowering or raising the internal cancer cell pH, you can theoretically stop cancer progression.[iv]  

While lowering cancer cell pH (increasing acidity) is effective against cancer cell mitosis in the lab, increasing acid levels in the live body of a cancer patient puts stress on normal cells and causes a lot of pain.  So the proposed alkaline therapy for people is a "high pH therapy" and has been developed to normalize the intracellular pH of the cancer patient's body through elimination of latent acidosis, while increasing the pH of cancer cells to a range above 7.5.  According to published research, it is at that pH they revert to a normal cellular apoptosis cycle (programed cell death).[v]

Ideally, this approach begins with an alkaline diet.  There is general agreement amongst natural healers and medical professionals alike, that changing a cancer patient's diet is extremely helpful when someone is confronted with a cancer diagnosis.  In a previous article, I outlined the six steps that every cancer patient should take to provide the best chance to heal from and prevent future recurrences of cancer using alkaline diet principles.[vi]

The alkaline diet, which is primarily plant-based and avoids sugar, dairy, wheat and other high-gluten grains as well as an excess consumption of fruits, while emphasizing fresh vegetables and vegetable juices along with cruciferous vegetables and greens, changes the body's intracellular pH to come close to the ideal blood pH of 7.3/7.41  - a key metabolic accomplishment on the path to longevity whether you have cancer or not!  An alkaline diet based on vegetables and fruits creates a less-than-optimal environment for cancer proliferation, while at the same time strengthens the immune function and supports healthy cells in the body through improved nutrition.

The second step is to use some nutritional mechanism to move the internal cancer cell pH from the optimal mitosis range of pH 6.5 to 7.5, to above 8, which shortens the life of the cancer cell.  As described by its proponents, alkaline therapy neutralizes the acid waste of the cancer which causes so much pain, interferes with the anaerobic fermentation of glucose that starts the self-feeding acidic cancer wasting cycle called cachexia and in time, can induce remission.  If this theory of alkaline therapy holds true, it should be possible to address cancer without chemotherapy, radiation or surgery and use alkaline therapy as a primary cancer treatment.

This bold statement comes from a somewhat abstruse body of research.  In the 1880's, Louis Pasteur published his work on cellular aerobic respiration and glycolysis.  In 1931, Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for his work on the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells, which was later summarized in his 1956 paper, On the Origin of Cancer Cells.  His work on cancer expanded upon Pasteur's findings and described respiratory insufficiency and a cellular metabolism of glucose fermentation as the primary trigger for cancer progression[vii].

Warburg's conclusions on cancer were much discussed in scientific circles, as they are academically elegant, but were not accepted by most members of the scientific community engaged in cancer research.  Most cancer researchers in the late 1950's believed that the anaerobic metabolism of cancer cells and their accompanying output of lactic acid was a side effect or an adjunct effect of cancer, not a cause.  Cancer research since the 1960's has focused primarily on genetic aberrations as causative for cancer, and has ignored the body of research on cancer pH and its implications for therapeutic approaches.[viii]

Warburg's work was a catalyst for yet another research effort on the nature of cancer cells, beginning in the 1930's.  A. Keith Brewer, PhD (physicist) performed experiments on the relationship between energized, oxygenated cell membrane and elemental uptake, vs. cellular membranes in an unenergized state such as cancer cells exhibit.  He wrote a number of papers discussing the cellular mechanisms of cancer cells and the changes in metabolism induced or indicated by the lack of or presence of oxygen in combination with other elements, particularly potassium and calcium.   He noted that cancer cells share one characteristic no matter what type of cancer:  they have lost their pH control mechanism.

Brewer's summary conclusion regarding cancer was that by changing the pH of cancer cells to alkaline (above 7.5), they will cease to function as they need an acidic, anaerobic environment to thrive.  In other words, he proposed that cancer cells will die if they can be pushed into an alkaline, oxygenated state.[ix]

Brewer's work cites areas in the world where cancer incidents are very low.  These areas contain concentrations of alkalizing minerals in the soil and water, which are greater than in other parts of the world.  For example, the Hunza of northern Pakistan and the Hopi Indians of the American West share both similar soil and water conditions and diet.  The alkaline elemental minerals of cesium chloride, germanium and rubidium are heavily present in the soil and water.  Ingestion of these elements is correspondingly high.  These peoples also live in similar high, dry climates and grow apricot orchards, traditionally eating the fresh or dried fruit and the seeds each day. 

It should be noted that apricot seeds are the source of the controversial cancer treatment Laetrile or B-17/Amygdalin.[x]   Apricot seeds contain trace amounts of cyanide, which has long been identified as a potential chemotherapeutic agent against cancer proliferation.[xi]   Other similarities in the diet include a low consumption of dairy products, meat and wheat, as these foodstuffs are difficult to farm in high, arid climates and a correspondingly greater consumption of millet, buckwheat, nuts, dried fruits and berries in their traditional diets, all of which contain a similar enhanced (though sill minute) concentration of cyanide.

This is all very interesting, but what does it really mean for cancer patients who wish to avoid the pain of cancer and the typical course of treatment using surgery, chemotherapy and radiation?  What are the conditions that will force cancer cells to change their pH?

Conventional chemotherapeutic agents such as Cytoxan usually cause more damage to normal cells than to cancer cells, because cancer cells have a very thick, unenergized cellular membrane that essentially protects them from absorbing many drugs.  Normal cells have no such protection. 

Conversely, cancer cells have no way to normalize their internal pH, where normal cells are relatively unaffected by high concentrations of alkalizing minerals.  However cancer cells take up primarily two elements:  glucose and potassium.

In practical application, then, it is necessary to find a way to guide alkalizing elements - such as cesium, germanium or rubidium - into cancer cells, without impacting normal cells.  It turns out this can be done using a transport agent that penetrates the bone/blood barriers, then relying on the normal uptake of alkalizing elements that follow the potassium pathway.  Cancer cells appear to have preferential uptake of cesium chloride in particular, but also take up germanium, rubidium, selenium, etc. all through the potassium pathway.

There is a compound that is frequently applied to the skin by arthritis sufferers for relief of inflammation, used in brain surgery to relieve intracranial pressure and topically used in sports medicine and veterinary medicine,[xii] also for reducing inflammation.  This compound is called DMSO and it is formed in the slurry created from soaking wood chips in water that is a bi-product of the paper making industry. 

Folklore has it that workers in the paper making industry were observed to have their hands in water continuously, but they never developed arthritis and had rapidly healing skin and strong nails.  Experimentation with DMSO as a medical treatment began in the 1800's and continues to the present day.  DMSO is medically approved in the United States only for the treatment of interstitial cystitis, a type of inflammation of the bladder.[xiii]

The reason DMSO is so interesting to cancer patients is that, in addition to its anti-inflammatory properties, it is a "carrier agent."  It penetrates the brain/blood barrier and carries with it whatever drug or mineral is mixed with.

There is now some interest in the cancer industry in potentially using DMSO to carry chemotherapeutic agents into cancer cells and get beyond their protective membrane.  However, for the purposes of changing the alkalinity of cancer cells using cesium chloride, germanium, rubidium and other alkalizing minerals, DMSO and its ingestible form, MSM, are an effective medium.  Essentially these agents carry the minerals into all areas of the body including the brain, organs and bone marrow, where they can be used with other nutrients in ordinary cellular metabolism.

Using topically applied and ingested alkaline minerals to change cancer cell pH is not a new idea.  Controlled experiments and the personal use of this method have been ongoing since the mid-1900s.   However, it is important to note that the only FDA approved clinical trial did not have outstanding results.[xiv]  About 50% of the participants died – though if you read the study results in detail you will discover that they had been pronounced terminal before the trial began and some of them never even took one treatment.  Others had side effects ranging from leg cramps to heart arrhythmia.  A careful read will lead you to believe that perhaps they were given too strong a dose in too short a period of time.[xv]

From this research and subsequent studies, it is now understood that alkaline minerals look to normal cells and to cancer cells like potassium.  All cells require potassium to function.  The reason cancer cells take up these alkaline minerals is their resemblance to potassium. 

Functionally, however, these minerals cannot take the place of potassium in cellular metabolism.  While substituting alkaline minerals for potassium creates exactly the desired result in cancer cells – increased alkalinity - when normal cells replace potassium with other minerals over the long term the consequences can be quite serious as it causes electrolyte imbalance, manifested as heart arrhythmia and leg cramps.[xvi]

The remedy to this condition of electrolyte imbalance, caused by replacement of potassium in healthy cells with other alkaline minerals during pH therapy, is simple in practical application.  Alkaline minerals are ingested or applied to the skin only during the day.  Then before sleep, the user must take potassium chloride supplementation along with other electrolytes such as magnesium and calcium if needed.  Monitoring of potassium blood levels every two weeks by a doctor is critical if a cancer patient decides to incorporate alkaline therapy into their cancer regime.   

When properly balanced, the side effects of using alkaline minerals are greatly if not completely remediated by electrolyte rebalancing.  Despite the "fear, fire, foe" tone of Mssrs. Wiens et al in the article cited above[xvii] there is no risk of dying of a heart attack (or leg cramp), unless the patient ignores the proper method using alkaline minerals and is not working in consultation with an experienced specialist.  A caution: electrolyte rebalancing cannot be properly implemented by casual methods such as drinking sports drinks, particularly since commercial products are generally full of sugar and artificial substances.  Electrolyte rebalancing must be carefully applied using specific doses of supplements, based on your personal blood composition, in consultation with a nutrition expert or endocrinologist.

My personal experience with pH therapy has been nothing short of spectacular.  I have seen stage four, terminal cancer patients recover using alkalizing minerals.  There are patients who report untreatable cancers, such as nasal or fully metastasized breast cancers, which after a very persistent course of tiny doses over several years, eventually disappeared altogether.  Patients who have never had chemotherapy or radiation often experience rapid remission after changing to an alkaline diet and incorporating the use of alkaline minerals into their regime. 

However pH therapy using alkaline minerals requires quite a bit of knowledge (do your homework!) and is greatly enhanced with the support of a mineral provider or cancer coach who has the experience to guide you through the process.  Many mineral providers sell minerals, but do not have the ability to assist the users.  Therefore, it is critical to seek a mineral provider who can provide references to extensive information and is available to help you work through the rough spots – and there will be some!

It is my direct personal experience that cancer can be controlled using alkaline minerals.  There are thousands of people who have had similar positive experiences.  Does it work for everyone?  No.  However if high pH therapy is properly applied, it works for a very respectable percentage of cancer sufferers – estimated at upwards of an 80% response rate by providers.  Significant when compared to traditional therapies.

This finding is why I started The Cancer Alternative Foundation - to help cancer patients feel comfortable using effective, natural therapies like pH therapy as part of their overall treatment strategy.  The Foundation simply researches and vets the claims of various alternative offerings for cancer – and there are more than 400!  To date, we have concluded that high pH therapy is one of the most effective alternatives, particularly for later stage cancers.

However alkaline therapy outcomes (as well as those for other sound alternatives) have yet to be documented in a systematic way, such that the medical community could reliably understand the positive impact that incorporating it into cancer treatment could make to hundreds of thousands of cancer sufferers.   Collecting outcomes is a current project at The Cancer Alternative Foundation and should prove invaluable to cancer patients and their doctors and care givers alike.[xviii]

If nothing else, it is my contention that alkaline therapy could be used in a supporting role to conventional treatment, which will only improve the long-term outcome for patients.  It is my hope that this promising and effective natural approach to cancer becomes more accepted by mainstream cancer care providers - as well as those enlightened individuals seeking a natural alternative, who are willing to close their eyes and jump. 

An alkaline approach to cancer can only help them to enjoy their future – as in having one!

Fennel Tea Alchemy ~ Helps with Respiration, Digestion, Weight Loss and More

FCGCT Commentary: We recommend the LoveHasWon Body Temple Optimization, to assist with energy management and the body. Visit the link below:

https://www.lovehaswon.org/body-temple-optimization/

By Ravi Teja

You would have probably seen it sometime in your kitchen. Or somewhere in the supermarket. The silent, ignored, and possibly forgotten fennel.

The brownish green (or greenish brown) seeds whose greatness was well known right from the ancient times. And now, it’s time to let people know of their wonders. Once again.

The fennel seeds. And the tea that is made with them. Truly healthful. Wondering how? Just keep reading.

What Is Fennel Tea?

Scientifically known as Foeniculum vulgare, fennel is an aromatic plant (from the carrot family) used for both medicinal and culinary purposes. Native to the Mediterranean, it is now found all over the world. Fennel seeds have an anise-like flavor. The seeds and its oil are used to make medicine.

It was used as traditional medicine in India, China, and the Middle East, and today, its use has spread across the world. Ancient Greek doctors suggested fennel tea for breastfeeding mothers in order to promote breast milk supply.

Fennel tea is prepared by simply boiling fennel seeds in water, in such a way that the volatile oils also blend well with the water. And yes, as we will see, the tea is extremely good for you.

But why?

What Is Fennel Tea Good For?

There are numerous fennel tea health benefits. It contains various antioxidants and other compounds that are extremely beneficial. A few of its benefits include improved digestive functioning and enhanced immunity and eye health.

In fact, the health properties of fennel tea were so popular that in countries like India and China, it was used to treat snake and insect bites. Back in ancient Greece, Olympic athletes used fennel to enhance stamina and promote longevity.

Rich in vitamins A, B-complex, C, and D, amino acids, and numerous other nutrients, fennel, undoubtedly, is one ingredient we all must include in our diet.

Now, we come to the health benefits of fennel tea – in greater detail!

Fennel Tea Benefits

1. Treats Gastrointestinal Issues And Improves Digestion

Fennel seeds are known to relax the muscles and stimulate the flow of bile, which eventually reduces pain – this can eventually improve digestion. Fennel is one of those herbs that has digestion-enhancing properties (1).

Fennel also expels gas from the body and relieves bloating. It encourages blood circulation to the digestive tract, thereby improving the overall digestive process (2).

According to traditional Persian scholars, fennel is one of the few herbal compounds that can help relieve flatulence (3). And numerous medical studies have proven fennel’s ability to improve the health of the gastrointestinal tract. As it is a good source of fiber, it keeps the large intestine and colon healthy (4). Fennel also is one of those spices that helps relieve gut-based gas production (5).

Though there is substantial evidence, there is anecdotal proof to support that fennel tea can alleviate IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) symptoms (6).

2. Aids Weight Loss

Wondering, how fennel tea benefits weight loss? Well, yes it does! It all boils down to fennel’s ability to aid digestion. Improved digestion enables your body to assimilate nutrients better. This keeps you satiated and reduces cravings. Ultimately, this helps in weight loss.

Fennel is also considered a hot temperament herb, and it helps decrease serum glucose levels and promotes weight control in humans (7). It also suppresses appetite and helps get rid of excess fluids and waste from the body (8).

3. Helps Treat Respiratory Ailments

An Egyptian study states that fennel has been used for centuries for curing respiratory disorders. The herb is also used for treating catarrh (excessive build-up of mucous) in the upper respiratory tract (9).

Fennel also helps to calm the spasms in the respiratory system. It cleanses the bronchial passages and keeps respiratory ailments at bay.

According to the Nutritional Geography website, fennel is extremely good for the lungs (10).

In a study conducted by the Ontario Veterinary College, a herbal composite containing fennel was found to alleviate the symptoms of respiratory dysfunction in horses (11). Similar results were found to be possible in humans.

Another Portuguese study recommends fennel for the treatment of respiratory conditions like bronchitis and chronic coughs (12).

4. Promotes Heart Health

There is a link between liver and heart health, which most of us are unaware of. The liver is where cholesterol is produced and broken down. A healthy liver breaks the cholesterol down more efficiently and regulates it as well. Fennel is one food that supports liver functioning and indirectly promotes heart health (13).

Fennel is also an excellent source of fiber. Fiber prevents cholesterol reabsorption and offers protection against heart diseases.

Fennel, being an excellent source of potassium, helps control blood pressure and counteracts the undesirable effects of sodium. This prevents hypertension and, eventually, heart disease.

5. Boosts The Immune System

Fennel is an excellent source of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that strengthens the immune system. Fennel also contains selenium that can stimulate the production of T-cells (T-cells are active participants in the immune response).

Fennel also possesses antimicrobial properties, which further help enhance immunity.

6. Promotes Eye Health

Extracts of fennel seed have been found to be potentially useful in treating glaucoma (14). You can use fennel tea either as an eye tonic – apply directly as eye drops or as a compress.

As per an Iranian study, fennel extracts are beneficial in improving vision (15). Vitamin C, one of the nutrients fennel is very rich in, plays a major role in protecting the eyes (16). As the eyes have a higher metabolic rate, they have an additional need for antioxidant protection – which is readily offered by fennel due to its high vitamin C content.

According to the Oregon State University, lower levels of vitamin C in the eye lens can increase the risk of cataract formation (17). The antioxidants in fennel shield the eyes from effects of macular degeneration (18). There are certain individuals who wash their eyes with fennel tea to treat conjunctivitis.

Fennel can also be used to treat eye inflammation (19).

7. Improves Hormonal Balance

Fennel is one of the foods containing phytoestrogens, which, according to an Italian study, promote hormonal balance (20). As per another American study, fennel seeds demonstrated significant ability to treat PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), which is a hormonal disorder most prevalent in women of reproductive age (21).

The phytoestrogen content in fennel is what makes the herb ideal for reducing the symptoms related to hormonal imbalance (22). Fennel also contains phytohormones that help regulate the body’s own hormones and prevent any potential imbalances (23).

Progesterone is the most important hormone when it comes to balancing the thyroid and the glandular system. And fennel possesses progestogenic substances that aid in this regard (24).

8. Helps Relieve Arthritis

In one study, certain inflammatory ailments were found to respond well to fennel. The herb also increases the activity of an antioxidant named superoxide dismutase, which contributes to reduced levels of inflammation.

As per a Mumbai study, fennel is one of the herbs that is extensively used to treat arthritis symptoms (25). In another Iranian study, fennel had shown excellent osteoprotective properties (26).

9. Helps Cope With Menstrual Problems

Certain studies suggest the efficacy of fennel in treating painful menstrual cramps (27). Fennel tea can also help regulate your thyroid so that you can have a healthy flow.

In a 2002 Iranian study, high school girls suffering from menstrual pain had reported major improvement in the condition after having taken fennel extract (28). In another placebo-controlled trial, fennel was found to significantly reduce menstrual pain (29). Another Iranian study had stated that the intake of fennel can alleviate menstrual symptoms like nausea and weakness (30).

Menstrual pain, according to certain studies, is probably caused by excessive contraction of the uterine muscles that leads to blood reduction. Fennel has been found to relax these muscles, thereby healing the symptoms.

10. Promotes Gum Health

Fennel, being an excellent antimicrobial agent, aids the treatment of gum inflammation (31).

11. Fennel Tea For Babies

As per the University of Maryland Medical Center, fennel tea can help reduce colic symptoms. This is because the herb soothes the gastrointestinal tract and expels gas (32). Fennel can have a relaxing effect on the baby’s intestines. However, as per studies, the herb is not recommended for infants below 4 months of age.

According to an Italian study, fennel infusions help prevent flatulence and colic spasms in babies (33).

However, fennel has been found to be unsafe for babies in a couple of instances. Please consult your doctor before using fennel tea for newborn.

12. Helps Kill Internal Parasites

Fennel is considered a botanical dewormer, and it can be used to eliminate internal parasites (34). Fennel tea has laxative properties that promote intestinal movement, and this helps flush the worms out of your system. Fennel seeds are also believed to act as a sedative for worms. Certain studies assume that worms cannot lay eggs when in a state of rest, and hence, fennel keeps them from multiplying.

13. Helps Treat Diabetes

In an Indian study, fennel was one of the 10 foods found to have properties that alleviated diabetic complication (35).

In another published study, 250 milligrams of fennel had considerably lowered blood glucose levels in the rats that were tested upon, indicating similar possibilities in humans.

Fennel, being a good source of vitamin C, can also help diabetics. A high intake of the vitamin might lower the blood sugar levels in people suffering from Type 2 diabetes.

One of the medications given to people having high blood sugar levels is Gluconorm-5, and one its constituents is fennel. The glucose-lowering effect of Gluconorm-5 is believed to be the result of certain ingredients, with fennel being one of them (36).

Fennel, like other non-starchy vegetables, has a low glycemic index. This makes the herb more conducive to blood glucose control and a beneficial food in the diabetic diet (37). Both the vegetable and its seeds contain certain chemicals that can act against diabetes (38).

Another reason fennel is a diabetes superfood is its potassium content. Potasisum has been found to increase insulin sensitivity, and is hence recommended for diabetics (39).

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, a large clinical study done on more than 2,000 people had found that adequate levels of magnesium in the diet can offer protection against Type 2 diabetes. Fennel is a magnesium-rich food, and hence can be quite helpful in this regard (40).

14. Helps Prevent Cancer

As per an American study, herbal supplements with fennel as one of the ingredients have the potential to protect against prostate cancer (41). Fennel tea is a multicomponent mixture containing various antioxidants that protect against cancer (42).

Fennel contains numerous bioactive compounds, including quercetin, which had shown anticancer activity (43). Fennel also possessses excellent anti-inflammatory properties that can be attritbuted to a phytonutrient called anethole. This compound, apart from hindering inflammation, also prevents the transformation of regular cells into cancerous ones.

Its richness in fiber and vitamin C make fennel an important food in cancer treatment (44). As per a report published by the Tennessee State University, fennel has been found to inhibit the growth of lung cancer cells and colon cancer cell lines (45). Fennel also limits the activity of a protein called NF kappa B, which is responsible for numerous inflammatory diseases, including cancer (46).

Fennel is also found to have remarkable anticancer potential against breast and liver cancer cells (47). The antioxidants in fennel, along with the fiber, help cleanse the colon and prevent colorectal cancer (48).

15. Fennel Tea Benefits For Men

Fennel is known as a libido-booster and can improve sexual desires, specifically in men. It can also relieve issues related to the bladder and prostate as well as prolong orgasms (49).

16. Helps Treat Acne

Fennel contains certain essential oils like anethole, myrcene, and limonene – all of which have exhibited anti-inflammatory properties with a potential to treat skin conditions like acne (50). Fennel also helps flush out the excess liquids from the skin, which might otherwise contribute to acne (51).

That is with the fennel seed tea benefits. But what about the dosage? How much of fennel can you take in a day?

Dosage

Ideally, you can use 5 to 7 grams of fennel seeds in tea per day. A dosage of 500 mg/kg can lead to adverse effects like piloerection and loss of appetite (52).

Fennel tea might also interact with certain medications and obstruct their metabolization. These include medications like ciprofloxacin and fluoroquinolone. To avoid interactions, take these medications at least two hours before you consume fresh fennel tea. Or best – avoid fennel if you are taking any of these medications.

5. Might Disrupt The Endocrine System

Fennel also contains phytoestrogens, which are a family of plant hormones suspected to disrupt the functioning of the endocrine system (53). Hence, if you are suffering from any kind of ailment related to the endocrine system, avoid the use of fennel.

Green Coffee For Weight Loss and More

FCGCT Commentary: We recommend the LoveHasWon Body Temple Optimization, to assist with energy management and the body. Visit the link below:

https://www.lovehaswon.org/body-temple-optimization/

By Charushila Biswas

Green coffee bean extract is the most talked about weight loss supplements in the world. It is the unroasted form of coffee bean that contains a high amount of chlorogenic acid. Research shows that chlorogenic acid inhibits visceral fat accumulation, has anti-inflammatory and cardiovascular protective properties, and increases insulin sensitivity (1). Moreover, green coffee extract has a lesser amount of caffeine as compared to coffee. But the weight loss claims of green coffee extract is highly contested. And any controversial supplement or food can raise curiosity and concern amongst those who want to use it for weight loss. So, I did a little digging to find out if green coffee extract for weight loss is a fact or faux. Read on to know if you should consider consuming it or drop the plan.

What Is Green Coffee Extract?

The unroasted coffee bean is the green coffee bean. These beans are soaked and concentrated for creating the extract. On the other hand, the coffee that you generally drink is roasted and processed, which is why it looks dark brown in color and has a different aroma. Green coffee extract also tastes much different than coffee. This is the reason why it is not much appealing to coffee enthusiasts. However, green coffee can aid weight loss. Or, is that just a myth? Let’s find out next.

How Does Green Coffee Extract For Weight Loss Work?

Coffee beans are a great source of two phytochemicals – caffeine and chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid is the one that has weight loss properties. However, roasting the coffee bean can destroy the chlorogenic acid, which is why green coffee extract is suitable for those who want to lose weight. Researchers have found that chlorogenic acid can help improve insulin sensitivity by downregulating the genes responsible for inflammation-induced weight gain and galanin-mediated adipogenesis (2). Chlorogenic acid can also prevent fat absorption and boost fat metabolism in the liver, thereby aiding weight loss (3). Green coffee extract can also help lower blood sugar and keep insulin spikes in check (4). Apart from improving fat metabolism, chlorogenic acid also normalizes the obesity-related hormones (5). Chlorogenic acid has also been found to lower plasma triglyceride and cholesterol levels in mice (6). Finally, chlorogenic acid also helps in weight loss by decreasing the absorption of sugar (7).

So, it is clear from all the studies mentioned above that green coffee bean targets the root causes of weight gain and therefore can be a potential weight loss agent. Green coffee is marketed in various forms. Find out which form of green coffee is convenient for you to drink.

Which Form Of Green Coffee Is Best For Weight Loss?

Soluble Green Coffee

Simple and quick to prepare, you can enjoy a cup of soluble green coffee just by adding water to a teaspoon of green coffee powder. There are three types of soluble green coffee that are marketed – powdered, freeze dried, and granulated. The powdered coffee is produced by crushing the green coffee beans in hot water under pressure. Freeze-dried green coffee is the best quality soluble green coffee. It is produced by freezing strong coffee infusions and vacuuming to dehydrate the coffee crystals. Granular coffee is created by accumulating coffee powder and using steam to form pellets. Though soluble coffee can be prepared instantly, it has more caffeine content. So, green coffee extract might be a great alternative to soluble coffee. Read the next section to find out more.

Green Coffee Extract

Green coffee extract has the highest amount of Chlorogenic acid and has more nutrients. It is sold in the form of pills or powdered form. The green coffee beans are processed to extract most of the chlorogenic acid. However, you should check with your doctor before buying a pack of green coffee powder or pills for weight loss. Now, the next big question is, how you can lose weight with green coffee? Let’s find out.

How To Use Green Coffee For Weight Loss?

 1. Green Coffee

To prepare green coffee, buy a pack of green coffee beans from the market. Use a coffee grinder to grind the green coffee beans and brew a cup of green coffee. Do not use sugar or artificial sweetener. If you get bored of drinking this, you can add other weight loss ingredients to lose weight quickly.

2. Green Coffee With Mint Leaves

Add mint leaves to your cup of green coffee. Let it steep for 5 minutes, and then drink it. Mint has weight loss properties and will help flush out the toxins.

3. Green Coffee With Cinnamon

Add 1 inch cinnamon stick to a cup of water. Let it steep overnight. Use this water to prepare your green coffee the next morning. Cinnamon helps to regulate blood sugar levels, improves insulin sensitivity, reduces LDL cholesterol, and has anti-inflammatory properties.

4. Green Coffee With Ginger

While you brew your green coffee, add a teaspoon of crushed ginger to it. Do not strain it immediately. Let it steep for 5 minutes and then strain and drink it. Ginger contains gingerol that has a thermic effect on the body. It also helps increase insulin sensitivity.

5. Green Coffee With Turmeric

Though this combination may seem a little odd, it works the best. Add ½ a teaspoon of crushed turmeric root to your coffee and let it steep for 3 minutes. Turmeric aids weight loss by boosting fat metabolism, increasing insulin sensitivity, and reducing inflammation.

As you can see, you do not have to get bored drinking the same old green coffee. But when is the right time to drink it? Find out in the next section.

When Is The Best Time To Drink Green Coffee For Weight Loss?

  • In the morning, before or after a workout.

  • In the morning, with breakfast.

  • In the afternoon, before lunch.

  • In the evening, with a healthy evening snack.

Green Coffee Dosage

The recommended dosage of chlorogenic acid for weight loss is 200 – 400 mg/day.

But can you drink unlimited cups of green coffee and lose weight? Explained in the next section.

How Many Cups Of Green Coffee Should You Drink For Weight Loss?

Anything in excess can be dangerous. Therefore, limit your green coffee intake to only 3 cups every day. Drinking excess cups of green coffee will not reap any faster results.

Tip – Avoid drinking green coffee immediately after a meal. 

But the big question is, is drinking green coffee safe? Let me explain.

Is Drinking Green Coffee Safe?

The marketed green coffee products by various companies may contain chlorogenic acid and caffeine in different concentrations. Moreover, since supplements do not have to be consistent in terms of composition, low-quality green coffee can be sold in the name of high-quality green coffee. Finally, the caffeine in low-quality green coffee can react with other drugs and supplements that you are currently on. So, before you decide to consume green coffee, do a thorough research and talk to your doctor to find out which is the best brand to opt for. Take a look at the benefits and side effects section before you make up your mind.

Benefits Of Drinking Green Coffee

  • Boosts metabolism that helps burn the fat.

  • Improves blood circulation.

  • Helps in liver detoxification.

  • Helps to lower bad cholesterol and regulates blood sugar levels.

  • Drinking green coffee can help you feel full for a longer duration, thereby preventing binge eating.

  • Helps improve brain activity that will keep you active through the day.

 

Now, let’s see what are its side effects.

Side Effects Of Green Coffee

  • Nausea

  • Headache

  • Insomnia

  • Indigestion

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Increased heart rate

  • Fatigue

  • Loss of calcium and magnesium

  • Ringing ears

  • Can interfere with antidepressants, diabetes, and blood pressure drugs

Now, before you come to a quick conclusion, let’s find out all about the controversy that surrounds this possible weight loss miracle.

Green Coffee For Weight Loss – Fact Or Fiction? 

Though a few research papers have proved that green coffee extract can help you lose weight, the Federal Trade Commission, the U.S Senate Subcommittee on Science, and Transportation Committee don’t seem to agree. They argued that the participant size was too small and the experiments were poorly designed. Therefore, even if green coffee shows some signs of weight loss, it cannot be called as the ultimate weight loss supplement. By doing so, the manufacturers are misleading the consumers. In fact, when Dr. Oz talked about this sensational weight loss supplement on his show in 2012, he was criticized and the guest on his show, Lindsey Duncan, was fined $9 million for misleading the viewers with deceptive information that did not have enough scientific backup. 

To conclude, losing weight is difficult, but not impossible. If you want to lose weight, you should eat healthy and workout regularly. And if your doctor gives it a thumbs up, you can use weight loss supplements like green coffee extract. But remember, only using green coffee extract to lose weight will not give you any results. Give it a good thought before you start using it. Take care!
