Shilajit, an ayurvedic healing organo-mineral: properties and health benefitsFor the longest time we've sold ayurvedic medicinal supplements, that invariably were herbs. One of those ayurvedic supplements however is not a herb but a complex organo-mineral substance, that is so peculiar it deserved its own blog article.
What is ShilajitShilajit is a complex organo-mineral substance that can be found exuding from rock fissures in the mountains of Asia. Most often found in the Himalayan foothills at altitudes between 1000-5000 meters, it is procured from humus and plant residues. Residues deposited over rocks and get pressed between layers of rocks for millions of years. Later on they get converted into gummy material which can be black, white or brown in color and similar to asphalt in appearance.
Shilajit is a substance revered in Ayurvedic medicine for its wealth of health- promoting properties. Consider the word “shilajit” itself--a Sanskrit term that has been variously translated as “rock-invincible,” “winner of rock,” or “conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness.”
In Ayurveda, it is counted as strongest and rejuvenating compound on earth while Indian Yogis designate as Amrita or the Elixir Of Life.
Modern scientists also started to explore the therapeutic benefits of Shilajit. Shilajit contains the various minerals and nutrients like fulvic acid and humic acid. Hence Shilajit is truly a super food.

Why can resistant starch improve your blood sugar balance?
Among the most popular good intentions we have before the new year starts is to improve health and lose weight.
Sadly, for many of us, those good intentions fall by the wayside within as little as 1 or 2 weeks. The main reason for failing on any given diet is that it tends to be a too drastic change in how we tend to eat.
Which for most of us, tends to be a moderate to high-carb diet, which for most Dutch people tends to revolve around bread and potatoes. That will make it very hard if you want to make a switch to a low-carb diet as is the norm these days.
However, I've got good news for you! You may not need to give up on all of your carbs. Instead, you can try to switch from carbs that have a negative impact on your blood sugar balance, towards slow-acting carbs also known as ... resistant starch.
Even when you are quite happy about eating a (very) low-carb diet, there are still ways to increase the amount of resistant starch in your diet, without drastically increasing the amount of calories and 'net carbs'.
Therefore the article below will tell you everything about resistant starch you need to know.

How to love your body?
With all these standards for beauty, it’s easy to plummet into a spiral of body-hating. Don’t succumb to the pressure! Love your body, no matter what!
Body shaming is, sadly, a trend these days. You have songs that hate on the skinny girls because “real women have curves.” Then you have songs about shaming people who don’t happen to have the body type of a Victoria’s Secret model. We all know that no one is perfect, but there are still some people who insist on telling people how they should look, how they should act, what size they should be, what their hair color should look like.
Everyone has the right to love their own body. Whether you’re skinny, fat, tall, short, missing a limb, dark-skinned, pale-skinned, what have you, every single body in the world deserves to be loved. It’s just a shame that so many people insist on hating on their bodies, simply because they don’t conform to the unrealistic standards set by society.
Why celebrating life with food is important for our health
Especially in the darkest months of the year, there seems to be an endless amount of celebrations.
No matter what is always a common theme: food is the main attraction! In fact, the focus society currently places on food has caused us to associate certain foods with holidays, past events and special times. When we sink our teeth into such foods, it can bring back memories we hold close and take us back to a time we enjoyed. Food is much more powerful than we think!
From catching up for coffee, relaxing over brunch, indulging in a long lunch or bonding at a BBQ, it’s hard to imagine getting together without the company of food. Food is something we all have in common, we all must eat, most of us find food pleasurable and trying new foods or cafes is a new experience we can share with others.
Is 5G safe enough?In the last few months, we've been bombarded with news about whether or not to cooperate with Huawei in the creation of a 5G-network, due to fear of being spied upon by the Chinese government.
However, it is rare to see concerns being spoken about the possible health effects of introducing a 5G-network, which is necessary in order to create the ability for the 'Internet of Things' (IoT).
What is 5G?5G, also known as 5th generation mobile networks or wireless systems, is considered the next phase in mobile technology. These wireless systems are the transmitters that carry signals to our cell phones and other wireless devices.
While the public isn’t operating on 5G yet, it’s anticipated that over the next decade, most wireless carriers will shift to 5G technology. This transition is expected to bring better coverage, lower battery consumption, faster Internet connection speeds, and the ability to support a growing market of products other than phones and tablets that feature wireless integration.
Why is it so hard for a diabetic to keep blood sugar levels stable?
Most of you will know how food containing starches or sugars will raise blood sugar levels, and those of us who are dependent on insulin to control blood sugar levels, either because they are born with diabetes (type 1) or develop it later in life (type 2), are keen on keeping their blood sugar levels within a certain range.
This isn't always easy, even when ingesting a precalculated amount of carbohydrates.
There are several reasons why blood sugar levels can fluctuate
