What Vegans Know That You Don’t

Oxidants are highly unstable compounds because they are missing an electron. They steal an electron from their neighbor, but now the neighbor needs an electron, so it steals one from its neighbor, and so on. When this happens in the body it is called oxidative stress and it’s very damaging to our cells if it’s not stopped.


How do we get the oxidants in the first place?

Is Your Vitamin Supplement Doing More Harm Than Good?

Magnesium is the most highly lacking mineral in our society. It’s not in the soil anymore and the toxins in the environment deplete our minerals. When I say environment I mean the air, water, things we eat, things we touch, and our inner environment in our bodies, but the toxins. Things like heavy metals such as mercury or phthalates and other things like GMO’s or glyphosate that binds to our minerals and deplete them even more. All kinds of things deplete our magnesium including stress. Magnesium is the first thing to be released from our cells when we are stressed. Not just mental stress but physical stress too.
