Potassium is a natural mineral required by the human body; it is a mineral classified as an electrolyte and is present in the body tissues and cells.
Potassium contributes to overall muscle function and plays a role in digestion and kidney function. A deficiency in potassium is known as hypokalemia, the symptoms include:
Herbs—The Subtle Healing
The cause and effect relationship of herbs is not crystal clear. Herbs come from a wide range of sources. There are checkpoints for the quality control of supplement makers; there are checklists and formulas to follow.
A solution known as Menstruum ( a solvent) extracts the healing chemical compounds from the plant materials. Most plants soak in Menstruum for about 2 weeks. The plant materials are then strained and pressed out, what’s left behind is tincture—a colored liquid with an earthy odor of alcohol and plants (Nature’s Medicines/Gale Malesky).
Vitamin C & Collagen
They play a role in the maintenance of the normal, mature collagen network (anti-scurvy properties) by auto-inactivation of lysyl and proxylhydroxylase—two key enzymes in collagen biosynthesis.
Vitamin C enhances the cellular matrix contraction by NHF. Exogenous Vitamin C supply could contribute to the maintenance of optimal collagenic density in the dermis and locally strengthen the collagen network.
Vitamin C Phosphate (Vit-C-P) and Vitamin C Glucoside (Vit-C-Glu), two Vit-C derivatives presenting higher chemical stability in aquaceous solution. The two compounds can be considered pro-vitamins for the skin and an advantageous substitute for Vit-C based anti-aging products.
#Kiwi & #Skin
The enzymes exfoliate dead skin cells, use as a daily scrub. The amino acids fight against the rays of the sun (an internal sunscreen), it clears pores, prevents sun damage, fights acne, and controls excess oil (sebum).

Healing begins when we help others and invest in ourselves (our own health and well-being) as well as to seek balance and assess our connectedness to conscious living; it is the restoration of a sense of wholeness.
These five elements of natural healing are used in the physiology and pathology of the human body and natural environment:
Wood-germination, growth, and extension
Fire-dryness, heat, ascension
Earth-growth, nourish, change
Metal-cutting, strength, firmness
Water-wetness, moisture, coolness
Each element corresponds to an element in the natural world, it’s how you use and process it that makes the difference.
Qi is the basic substance that makes up the human body and several materials that circulate constantly via strong energy. The goal is to bring the entire (whole) organism back into balance (ed2go).
The gut is intelligent in and of itself. Folate rich foods are rich in Vitamin B9 for cellular growth. Synthetic folate is a supplement found in processed foods; it prevents neurotube defects.
We are not supposed to absorb everything we eat; however, folic acid converted to other folate via enzymes, unmetabolized decrease natural killer cells and it is said to suppress cancer formation, while too much folic acid is harmful.

#Copper & #Skin
From Ancient Egypt, an anti-aging ingredient that maintains healthy skin, has Vitamin A, which develops collagen and elastin. It maintains the strength of the skin and promotes the production of skin plumping hyaluronic acid; it’s has antibacterial and antifungal elements that prevent infection.
Copper is known for use in wound care and acne treatment. The copper helps heal and hydrate the skin. It is metabolized so toxicity is low. Blue Copper increases luminosity and firmness without the irritation of retinol and glycolic acids (sugar cane).
Cognition (The Mental End Game)
According to research via UK University of Leeds (Louise Dye, PhD-Professor at the university), one glass of Concord Grape Juice per day increases spatial boosting benefits in the brain/memory, by the polyphenols in grapes.
She is the senior author of the study and provides that: “The research is promising and suggests that cognitive (mental) benefits associated with Concord Grape Juice are exclusive to adults with the early onset of mental decline.” It has a long-term effect, even after it is no longer consumed, suggesting a long-term effect of the flavonoids, (Natural Awakenings/Aug. 2016).

GROUND FLAX-Natural Laxative
Flax seed is a good source of dietary fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids. The fiber in the flaxseed is found primarily in the seed coat. It is a seed from the plant Linum Usitatissiumum; the seed oil is used to make medicine.
Flaxseed is used for the (GI) GastroIntestinal Tract, i.e., it helps your bowels move smoothly, aids in constipation, and cleans out your system, with the assistance of clean water.
Flax is also used for disorders of the heart and blood vessels, including high cholesterol, the hardening of the arteries, and hypertension (high blood pressure), etc. Flax is said to assist with ADHD, acne, menopause, and breast pain; it aids with diabetes, obesity, and weight loss.
Researchers note that the fibers combine with the cholesterol in the intestines to prevent it from being absorbed. It makes the blood platelets, the blood cells involved in clotting, less sticky, which lowers the risk of hardening arteries.
The overuse of (OTC) over the counter laxatives lead to constipation, colon damage, and diarrhea--amongst other problems. The inflammation eventually causes (IBS) irritable bowel syndrome/irritable colon and cause sores in the lining of the (LI) large intestine.
Consult your physician to see if it is right for you. Stratified medicine is specific to the individual and there is no one size fits all approach.
