Is caffeine good or bad for your health? It may come down to who you are and your health situation. Before you decide if that coffee, tea, or energy drink habit is right for you, consider the following 10 things you really need to know about caffeine:
The Sliding Caffeine Threshold
Everyone is different and so is our caffeine-tolerance. One person’s perfect amount is another person’s nerve-rattling, hand-shaking, can’t-sleep-at-night amount. What’s right for you depends on many factors like whether you metabolize caffeine slowly (it stays in your system longer), whether you’re on medications that slow the rate of caffeine metabolism (such as the birth control pill which tends to doub…
Before you take another sip of that aspartame-laden diet soda, here are 14 reasons to rethink that drink:
1. Only one year after aspartame was approved by the FDA, its own task force learned that some of the original data showcasing aspartame’s safety had been falsified to hide results showing animals fed aspartame had developed seizures and brain tumors. The artificial sweetener was never recalled.
2. Ironically considering its name and reputation as a "diet" drink, drinking diet soda is more likely to make a person fat. It is linked to a 34% increase of metabolic syndrome, along with its telling symptoms of high cholesterol and abdominal obesity. Just two cans of diet soda daily…

An ancient Tibetan healing secret is finally being discovered in the West. For thousands of years Tibetans used a fruit that grows wild in the Himalayan Mountains as food and medicine to treat many serious health conditions ranging from breathing disorders to skin problems. Now science is proving that sea buckthorn is potent natural medicine.
Like many superfoods, sea buckthorn contains numerous powerful antioxidants that help the body deal with free radical damage (now linked to almost every illness and aging). But sea buckthorn doesn’t stop there, it is also an excellent source of important Omega 7s. That’s not a typo. You may have heard of Omega 3s, 6s, and 9s, but 7s are also …
