Plant Sterols Benefits for Cholesterol and Prostate Health

There is a white, waxy, naturally occurring substance found in many whole foods, including vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes that shows tremendous promise both for its ability to lower cholesterol (in studies it was just as effective as statins) AND reverse benign prostatic hyperplasia. It’s inexpensive, easy to find and works wonders without a single side effect. Get the whole story here.

Daily intake of “superfoods” can have a profoundly positive impact on your health. And today I want to show you something that’s both a superfood and adaptogen—something that’s been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years to decrease inflammation, fight anxiety, boost your immune system, help lull you to sleep and much more. But right now science is turning its attention to this “wonder fungus” because of its ability to fight prostate cancer.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the most common sex-related problem men report to their doctors. As many as 30 million men have it, and it’s totally normal to experience erectile problems from time to time…but when it becomes progressive or more frequent occurrences, it indicates a problem.

Natural Remedies for Erectile Dysfunction

If you’re struggling with ED, first understand that you’re not alone. I see hundreds of male patients with the same challenges. Although I know it’s embarrassing to talk about, my suggestion is that you visit your doctor and ask them to test you for two things: your heart function and your hormone levels. Erectile dysfunction can actually […]

Saffron: natural remedy for erection problems

A big thank you to food scientist Massimo Marcone. He exhaustively reviewed more than 200 studies of “aphrodisiacs,” and found many dangerous, and nearly all useless.  One rare exception?
