2 Socially Accepted Habits that will Shorten your Lifespan

After a conversation with a friend, who seemed to think that supplements such as vitamins should only be taken when you are already at the peak of exercise and eating right, I realized how easily we can fall into the trap of socially acceptable habits (or thought patterns) which lead to faster aging, and progression of disease. 

This post is inspired from that conversation – and I hope it will help improve your quality of life, not only life span.

1. Vitamins and Supplements are only for people who already exercise and eat properly

The idea that you should only take supplements when you are at the peak of fitness, or peak of eating and exercising as best as you can, to make the most of supplements is heavily flawed and is often socially acceptable as people think “I already have my veggies everyday, and eat healthy” or something like “I don’t exercise enough to have a higher nutrient requirement” – these are very dangerous ways of thinking.

The problems with this type of thinking is as follows:

  • Nutrition: Vegetables that grow today (organic or otherwise) are many times less nutrient dense, than they were 20-30 years ago, let alone a 100 years ago. This is due to environment change and intensive farming practices due to population growth, without enough knowledge and know-how on restoring the land’s nutrient and mineral quality.
  • Environment: The Human environment has changed radically in the last 20-30 years. Stress levels of the average human in a developed society is so high, that some scientists say that we are at schizophrenic stress levels. Increased stress uses up more nutrients in the body, whether you exercise or not – you already know that the brain is the biggest calorie consumer, so it is not a big leap in realizing that a stressed brain will consume even more!

The reason for the above is not necessarily negative – it is simply a changing environment – which is the nature of nature – and life’s basic purpose, is to take what is around, and adopt and co-exist with the new environment and then, if possible, thrive as well!

Supplementing from vitamins is essential in the time we live – and a basic vitamin everyone should take is B-complex vitamins – the most expensive ones they can afford – as a general rule, more expensive means better quality.

2. Beef is not good for you, and Red meat can Cause Cancer

There is a widespread misunderstanding about meat and especially about beef – there are studies which have said that red meat increases the growth rate of cancer cells – problem is, it is obvious it would, but it is not just cancer cells, it is all cells – this is what the study does not tell you!

This means faster renewal of cells as the amino acids from beef are the most bioavailable, so yes, of course it will increase renewal in all types of cells, even cancer – this does not mean it is unhealthy or will cause cancer – the causes of cancer is complicated, and if you really want to avoid everything that may cause cancer, then you might as well stop breathing, because they have also said oxygen causes cancer!

Cancer cells are just super cells in your body designed to handle the stress factors that your body previously could not handle – it won’t kill you if your whole body became that in one instant – it would mean you have just upgraded your body to handle the stress factors which caused it, be it emotion, chemical or combination of those.

This study proves that beef is the most bioavailable for the body – this means that after an intense exercise session, eating beef will rebuild muscle tears faster than anything else. Not only that, but an organ that has been depleted from amino acids, will have a better chance at regenerating faster.

Another thing to note – growing age kids will benefit from this too, and help at high quality amino acids which are most bioavailable to their bodies to develop muscles, bones and health organs.

Please share this with friends and family if you found it useful – it will help create awareness of things we often accept without questioning.

 

 

What is the Best Serum for Hair Growth? Reviews and Ratings

There are a lot of hair growth serums on the market today – some work, some don’t and some actually can cause serious side effects if you aren’t careful with the ingredients list. This article is designed to help you make a decision on what hair growth serum is best for you.

What is a Hair Growth Serum?

A hair growth serum is a mixture of oils or liquids with the intention to help hair growth; at least that is how they are marketed to the public.

Some hair growth serums try to provide hair nutrients for hair growth, some try to stop the root cause of hair thinning to prevent further hair fall or hair loss, and some try to artificially enhance hair to make it appear thicker.

Are Serums Good for Hair? and Hair growth?

The answer to this is yes and no – some serums can actually help support hair growth, and possibly regrow hair to an extent depending on your condition – whilst other serums can cause dangerous side effects and even cause hair loss.

How do Serum Work on Hair?

There are many ways a serum will work on hair – one way is artificial enhancement. Many companies do this and this does not actually help hair growth. It only works by expanding the hair shaft for a few hours after application, and makes hair seem thicker. The problem is, this can have serious side effects (see next heading for side effects).

The other way serums work, is by targeting inflammation in the scalp, as well as providing vital nutrients that can pass the walls of the scalp for the hair – this is not always possible, and some companies try to do this, but it does not always work – as some ingredients residue is too large to pass through the epithelial wall.

You have to decide what type of hair density you want – but be aware of side effects as well.

Hair Growth Serum Side Effects

Hair growth serum can have negative side effects if you choose the wrong one – or if you use it incorrectly.

The ones you need to worry about is the hair growth serum that tries to say it grows hair, or helps hair growth, but actually only artificially enhances hair growth – this is because those chemicals can actually increase inflammation in the scalp, and cause hair loss to speed up.

This is why we created our own reviews for hair growth serums, and listed the ones that do not cause this inflammation, and have no negative side effects.

Ingredients

There are various ingredients in hair growth serums from various companies – some do not disclose those, whilst some do due to laws in the country they were produced – some ingredients are great, whilst some are dangerous.

“Essential oils in serum are a big problem, they burn hair follicles – don’t buy serums with essential oils in them”

If the company is not showing ingredients clearly, it does not mean it is a negative thing – some companies need to protect the ingredients, and they cannot make it a patent due to using only natural ingredients (only artificial ingredients can be patented) – so do not think that this will always be a negative – but the good companies will allow you to contact them to ask if it contains an ingredient you may be allergic to – for example, if you are allergic to nuts, you can contact the company and tell them, and they will tell you if this is okay for you or not.

The best thing to make sure – if a serum contains essential oils, and boasts about it – stay away from it – essential oils will burn hair follicles and will prevent hair growth contrary to what everyone seems to say, they are a neurotoxin, and this causes damage to hair growth and increases inflammation – it can also cause headaches.

 

Hair Growth Serum Reviews

There are so many companies trying to sell a hair growth serum, we decided to review each serum and let you know if this is good for your condition or not – each serum has a target market, and they aren’t all equal, even if they all say hair growth serum, some actually are trying to artificially enhance hair, but not actually grow quality hair or longer hair.

Immortals Oil Review – Rated as the Number 1 Hair Growth Serum/Oil

Website: ImmortalsOil.com

This serum has been reviewed as the most effective serum for hair growth – we will update this post if this changes – all posts on humancure are constantly updated.

Whilst this is not labeled fully as a serum – it does come in the same category as this is a liquid that you apply on the scalp for preventing hair loss, as well as helping new hair growth – it is also for people looking to increase hair growth rate, and increase hair length at a faster rate.

This serum is also great for dry and damaged hair as it focuses on re-building the quality of hair – if you already have good hair, it will produce increase the rate of hair growth speed (so yes, you may complaint you have to go to the hair salon more often).

From the first hand study conducted as well as reviews gathers, this is the number one rated serum for hair growth and preventing hair loss, including increasing hair length at the fastest rate possible – but you need to know how to use it – which means you need to massage in the oil/serum, after application for a few minutes to really get to work.

We liked this aspect of the company – as they offered support to our users who were testing the product.

Well Grow Serum Review – Rated No.2 Hair Growth Serum

This is the next growth serum that we rated as one of the best – although we will always vouch for Immortals oil, the Well Grow Serum is rated highly because they focus also on hair growth and hair stimulation – whilst the results of before and after can vary, and probably depend on each individual trying it, it can possibly help with hair growth or at least providing the best nutrients to hair.

We won’t recommend only using a serum for hair growth however, and that a regime is always needed when you are trying to naturally help hair growth.

Hairgro Serum Review

Whilst the ingredients of this serum do have some history with hair loss and hair growth – this combination and topical application will not get any results in terms of hair growth.

Many companies seem to add a bunch of ingredients known for hair growth, and create a product – they usually rely on the marketing of the ingredient in question, instead of creating a product that works – whilst we aren’t saying that Hairgro Serum did this, but it is worth mentioning this as this is what it looks like.

Cake Hair Growth Serum Review

Cake hair growth serum contains essential oils which will burn hair follicles – so if you actually want to cause hair loss, then please go ahead and buy this – please do stay away from this, as this is probably the most harmful product we have come across in our reviewing history – and the only reason it is mentioned is for the safety of our readers.

Essential oils are often marketed for hair growth – the problem is – it’s a neurotoxin – so whilst it can seem to help in a few applications – regular use will actually cause the opposite effect due to the burning effect of essential oils (even if it is heavily diluted).

Kerastase Hair loss Serum Review

Kerastase hair loss serum is also one of those that target artificial hair growth – which means its not actually trying to keep hair healthy – it’s the opposite, as it contains ingredients in it that will increase inflammation.

People do seem to like the short term effects of Kerastase Serum, but we recommend that if you do use it, don’t use it daily, or too often as this will cause scalp calcification and in turn, hair thinning. You should stick to the top 2 products we mentioned here as there are too many serums out there to review and rate – and most of them have similar ingredients and try to compete by good looking packaging, which actually won’t help solve or help hair thinning.

 

 

Anxiety and how it affects Hair thinning

Anxiety is often talked about as a mental health issue, however there is very little information out there that says how it affects your body – this includes not only your hair, but also your organs and endocrine system as well as the nervous system.

If you imagine someone at constant anxiety, their heart rate alone would increase due to their fear, and for that to happen, adrenal glands will have to be firing away at full throttle – this over long term, will deplete kidneys and cause aging at a faster rate – this means white hair, as well as hair thinning.

After the hormonal system is affected, it takes some time for it to become an adopted by the body – as a natural state of being – so this no longer remains just a mental issue, as now the body is geared towards staying in this state – so even if the person is simply sitting down with nothing to be anxious about, their body will still be in a state of anxiety, and they will still feel anxiety as a natural state of being – this is when we say the pattern has become an adopted pattern, and changing this requires a lot of effort as you will have to do things that feel unnatural and not normal for your body type until it becomes the new adopted pattern of your body.

When the hormones are affected from anxiety, this also then affects hair and skin quality directly – nutrient absorption can also be affected, which means it further affects skin and hair as this is first to go, if nutrients are low.

 

Protein Diet – The Do’s and Dont’s

There is a lot of misinformation about the protein diet out there – so this article was written to clarify what the diet is, what the benefits of a protein diet are, medically and cosmetically; as well as how to use the protein diet for your health.

The protein diet is so simple, that people end up getting confused if that is what the protein diet is – it literally is eating only lean fat free lean meats with beef at the top priority, combined with any leafy green (spinach, kale and so on).

Okay, let me do this again – for clarity’s sake.

What is the Protein Diet?

It consists of the following foods to be eaten (nothing else):

  • Beef (fat free as possible) – This is a must, and should not be omitted from the diet, as the diet will fail otherwise.
  • Lamb (fat free parts only)
  • Chicken (no skin part)
  • White Fish
  • Combined with all types of leafy greens (not fruits, not other vegetables)
  • Garlic and light amount of salt is okay for marinating

What does the Protein Diet help with?

The protein diet helps with a huge range of conditions such as the following below, but not limited to it:

  • Hormone Imbalance (men and women)
  • Sugar Addiction
  • Insulin and Diabetes
  • Hair Growth
  • Skin Disorders
  • Menstrual cycle problems
  • Heart Valve Issues
  • Nutritional Absorption Issues
  • Cosmetic Improvement (Looking younger)

Rules of the Protein Diet

The protein diet is a tough diet to be on – and if you have any kind of sugar addiction, it will get rid of it within 7 days of being on the diet.

The diet should be followed for as long as you have the condition you are working to resolve – as this will help at a cellular level and provide the building blocks needed for recovery.

In today’s time of junk food and various ingredients used in processed foods, we have way too many foods with hidden ingredients which could be affecting our health – this diet is one way to really detox from it – it isn’t for the faint hearted.

Is the Protein diet the same or similar to the Paleo Diet?

This is often something that people ask about – and yes, whilst it is similar, it has a different purpose to the Paleo diet – the protein diet is meant to be set for a certain amount of time, and then you should be able to go back to your eating various  kinds of foods, even sugar to a small extent – the Protein diet is a medical diet, not a lifestyle like the Paleo diet.
