  2. What is Gout and how to manage it

    Gout has long been known as the “disease of kings” as it was commonly associated with the lavish diet and alcohol consumption of the wealthy, like King Henry VIII, who suffered from it. It is one of the most common forms of inflammatory arthritis which results from the build-up of uric acid crystals in joints.

Purines are metabolized in the body to produce uric acid which is excreted from our bodies as waste via urine or stool.

  7. Top 3 Impressive Benefits of Maca Root Powder

    Maca powder has become increasingly popular over the years. Maca, which mainly grows in the Andes of central Peru, is often referred to as Peruvian ginseng. Maca is a cruciferous vegetable with a long history of culinary and medicinal use in Peru. The main part of the plant is the root, which exists in a range of colors from white to black. The Maca root is generally dried and consumed in powder form. It is often described as having an earthy, nutty taste. An example is Nature’s Superfoods Organic Raw Maca Powder and Nature’s Superfoods Organic Gelatinised Maca Powder. Organic Gelatinized Maca Powder does not contain any animal origins and it is suitable for vegetarians. Gelatinized Maca powder does not refer to a mixture of Maca powder and gelatin, as some would think. Gelatinization refers to the process of breaking down starch chains in the Maca root (by pre-cooking the roots under controlled temperature conditions), thus making the root powder more easily digested. Hence, Gelatinized Maca’s active ingredients are more concentrated and more quickly absorbed by the body.
