(NaturalHealth365) Many foods are touted as “superfoods,” but hemp seeds have the credentials to back up that claim. In fact, no other plant-based food has such a perfect ratio of all the essential amino (and fatty) acids in such an easily digestible form for human consumption as hemp seed.
Their reputation as a superfood comes primarily from the significant amounts of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) they contain. These hemp seed benefits help to make hemp seeds a natural combatant for chronic inflammation, marking them as an important defense mechanism against chronic disease and the effects of premature aging.
(NaturalHealth365) If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from migraine headaches, you know that the pain can be relentless – persisting for hours and even days. Unfortunately, these disabling headaches are far from rare. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), research from 2018 showed that over 15 percent of all American adults reported having a migraine within the past three months.
(NaturalHealth365) The “graying of America” has led to soaring rates of Alzheimer’s disease, an age-related neurodegenerative condition that currently affects 6.2 million adults in the United States. And, there is worse to come. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia doubles every 10 years after the age of 60 – leading experts to predict that cases of cognitive decline will skyrocket to 13.8 million by the year 2050.
(NaturalHealth365) Virtually everyone is familiar with the feeling of physical fatigue: the sense of tiredness, the heaviness in the limbs, the overwhelming desire to rest. But there is another kind of fatigue that can be just as debilitating: mental fatigue. Sometimes referred to as “brain fog,” this temporary – but frustrating – mental state is characterized by impaired concentration, “fuzzy” thinking, lack of mental focus, and difficulty with simple cognitive tasks that would ordinarily be easy to complete.
(NaturalHealth365) Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a phrase used to describe a group of conditions, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, all of which involve chronic inflammation throughout the gastrointestinal tract. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than three million adults have been diagnosed with the disease, and it’s becoming increasingly common. But, the big question is: what does science tell us about how vitamin D can improve this condition?
(NaturalHealth365) Don’t become a medical statistic – this coming flu season. Today, we’ll talk about how ginseng can help to support a strong immune system response.
As you probably know: seasonal influenza can be a rapidly-spreading and highly contagious health issue that leads to 291,000 and 645,000 fatalities worldwide every year. Although most healthy adults recover from bouts of the flu with nothing more serious than unpleasant memories of fever, aches and pains, the fact is that a flu can and does increase the risk of premature death – in people with a compromised immune system.
(NaturalHealth365) If you struggle with depression, you have plenty of company. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, over 40 million Americans currently suffer from the condition. In fact, depression is so widespread that experts predict that about half of the population will experience at least one episode of depression in their lives. Clearly, there is a need for effective natural interventions for depression.
Fortunately, recent research supports the ability of simple lifestyle changes and natural nutrients and supplements to complement conventional antidepressant therapy. For ten of the most effective natural techniques against depression, keep reading.

(NaturalHealth365)By this point in the novel coronavirus pandemic, the medical community has learned some surprising things about COVID-19. For example, most people think about the disease as chiefly a respiratory problem. But in severe cases, multiple organs within the body are being damaged, including the liver, heart, and kidneys. What doctors don’t fully know is if this multi-organ damage is due to the virus itself or due to immune-mediated inflammation due to the viral infection. →
