CLA and weight loss, muscles, cancer, heart health, and more

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Looking to get lean, build or maintain muscle? One promising answer is conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, which can be found in grass-fed meat and raw dairy products from grass-fed animals such as beef, milk, butter and cottage cheese. CLA is an antioxidant, anti-carcinogen, and anti-catabolite. It has been shown to support long-term health and fitness goals including weight loss, fat burning, lean muscle building and muscle retention, even during weight loss.
Other benefits of CLA on the body include increased metabolic rate, enhanced muscle growth, decreased food-induced allergic reactions, and lower cholesterol and insulin resistance. CLA is also beneficial in improving osteoporosis, inflammation, cardiovascular disease, high blood pleasure, and diabetes.
Furthermore, CLA enhances the immune system and fights cancer. Research has linked its cancer fighting capabilities to colorectal, lung, skin, stomach, and breast cancer, with even a small addition of CLA resulting in over 50% tumor reduction.
Unfortunately, there is a deficiency of CLA in the average American diet, a trend that has risen with the obesity and cancer epidemics in recent decades – as the availability of CLA in our diets has decreased. The meat and dairy industry has shifted away from grass-fed, free-range, and natural and gone the way of feedlot systems and the addition of hormones, additives, chemicals, antibiotics, toxins, and more. Animals under these conditions are more susceptible to disease, and produce nutritionally inferior meat and dairy products, not to mention the sheer cruelty of their living conditions in many cases.
This shift has brought with it a decline in the CLA content of meat and dairy products, which research has highlighted as a serious potential factor for the rise in obesity, cancer, diabetes, and other health problems. Fortunately, there is a solution: grass-fed beef and raw dairy from grass-fed sources. Grass-fed meat and dairy have been found to contain three to five times more CLA than grain-fed.
So whether you’re a bodybuilder, athlete, looking to drop a few pounds, prevent or fight cancer, diabetes, heart disease, are against animal cruelty, or just want to improve your health, one vital component is the addition of grass-fed beef and dairy to your diet – it’s a healthier, tastier, and humane way to optimum health. Shop farm fresh, support local, and fuel, heal and nourish your body with superior nutrition.

When did soap stop being soap?

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Your skin is literally your largest organ, and anything you put on it is absorbed into your bloodstream where it travels to your inner organs. This makes it all the more frightening that the majority of soaps, lotions, creams, shampoos, body washes, sunscreen, deodorant, and other skincare items are loaded with cancer-causing chemicals. As with food, you should be weary of the ingredients that you can’t pronounce, let alone identify. These chemicals can cause skin issues and hormone disruptions that lead to cancer, weight gain, and a host of other problems.  Skincare products, even some that are labeled natural or organic, are loaded with chemicals.
So what can you do to protect yourself? Know your product, do your homework, and support local, like the handmade organic honey clove bar available farm fresh with your favorite grass-fed beef and raw dairy products at the local Central Florida service FarmFreshDirect2U.com. A rich blend of organic palm, coconut, olive and palm kernel oils along with essential oils, organic cornmeal pure Vermont honey, and organic rosemary extract, the honey clove bar pampers your skin and delights your senses. Ideal for even the most sensitive skin, this organic soap bar cleanses and moisturizes, providing a safe alternative to the harsh and dangerous chemicals in factory produced soaps and products. Also available is raw honey, which can be used to make your own shampoo and skincare products.

It should come as no surprise that we are in the midst of a food revolution.  The biggest move is going local.  What does that mean?  For one it means knowing your farmer, your farmer who has fresh raw milk , farm fresh eggs  and other goodies.  This idea is catching on in Florida and Orlando in particular.  Local buying clubs are growing and people are demanding wholesome quality food and florida farmers are working to meet the demands.  Farmer’s markets are growing and the  Orlando area has about 10 very popular markets.  It’s getting easier to find goat milk, raw cheese, farm fresh yogurt and much more.

Raw Milk win in Canada similiar to Florida.

After a long standing legal battle with the Canadian government Michael Schmidt was acquitted in a Newmarket court this past January. He was cleared  of 19 charges of distributing raw milk and raw milk products.

Justice of the Peace Paul Kowarsky essentially agreed that  no law was broken because  he was distributing to cow-share owners of  and not the public at large.

Mr. Schmidt, a 54-year-old Durham region dairy farmer, and his supporters maintain that  grass-fed raw milk is healthier before it is pasteurized,  yet Canadian health officials deem it unsafe for public consumption.
