White Mulberry Mysteries – Your Top 3 Questions Answered
(Text Version)

Today  I thought I’d just take a quick moment to answer the 3 most frequently asked questions about white mulberry tea. Does it have to be white mulberry leaves or will the leaves from any mulberry tree have the same effect? We don’t really know for sure. We believe that all mulberry trees have DNJ, the most commonly cited active ingredient in White Mulberry Leaf. But, we do not know if the other species are as potent or effective. White mulberry trees (Latin: Morus alba)...

Antioxidant Face-Off - Orange Juice vs. Whole Flower Hibiscus Tea
(Text Version)

Today it's time for a face-off! In this corner, we’ve got the orange team. Beloved by antioxidants fans everywhere. Their motto, “Breakfast without orange juice is like a day without sunshine.” And in this corner, the red team, featuring organic whole flower hibiscus tea from Immortalitea. Their motto…Well, actually hibiscus tea doesn’t have a motto. So, lets’ go straight to the showdown. Here’s how an 8-ounce cup of orange juice stacks up according to the USDA National Nutrient Database and a 2010 study published in...

Which Herb Should I Try for...

One of the questions I am asked often is something like, “Which of your wellness teas should I drink for condition X ?” where X is whatever is highest of the person’s personal health concerns.  I try my best to answer (always bearing in mind that I am not a doctor and there are a lot of you asking) but the answer is not always clear-cut because most wellness herbs have more than one benefit and synergistic effects. This is one of the reasons I’m not...

Ground-breaking research from high school student (and Immortalitea)

It’s no secret I’m a science geek. Over the years Immortalitea has participated in several formal research projects with organizations like the University of Maryland’s Food Sciences Center and The University of Louisiana’s School of Kinesiology. This week I’m proud to share with you our latest research results, regarding the antibacterial properties of White Mulberry Leaf. The researcher extracted essential oil from white mulberry leaf tea samples provided by Immortalitea. She then tested the antibacterial effects of the essential oil on the bacteria Clostridium Sordellii....

Super Slow Resistance Training

Today I wrap up my series on exercise with the actual routine that I’m using. My Definition of The Ideal Exercise Routine Let’s recap the key attributes of the routine I was searching for. Increase the metabolic efficiency of my muscles (i.e. the endurance) Increase strength so that I can do more with less effort Reduce percentage of body fat (Of course diet is more important than exercise in this regard.) I want a whole body workout - Research shows that metabolic improvements are muscle...

What is Sequential Recruitment?

This is the last explanatory post in this series on exercise. Next post I’ll share with you the actual routine I’m using. But before I do, I need you to understand one more critical concept. It’s called Sequential Recruitment. This sounds like some kind of military strategy but it’s actual a term used by physiologists to describe the process your body uses to engage muscle fiber in sequence. First, let me put an end to one of the most commonly stated myths in your local...

The Power of Anaerobics!

Aerobics, exercises designed to increase the efficiency of the aerobic stage of muscle metabolism, were introduced by Dr. Kenneth Cooper in the 1960’s. Dr Cooper assumed that the aerobic part of the metabolism was the most important part. I hope from my previous posts you begin to see that Dr. Cooper was wrong in that assumption. Your muscles have a metabolic cycle that is dependent on BOTH aerobic and anaerobic processes. You cannot optimize one without optimizing the other. Most people think that food is...

I Hope I'm Not Bohr-ing You.

In my last post I explained three things that you must do to be more “fit”, where I define being “fit” as being able to do more physical activities with less effort. •   make oxygen more chemically available to muscle cells •   deliver energy to muscle cells at a rate that maximizes oxygen consumption •   increase the strength of individual of muscle fibers You can read that post and the rationale behind these fitness imperatives here: Why Doing Aerobics Won’t Make You More Fit. The only exercise modality...
