ALS awareness efforts made waves in 2014. The Ice Bucket Challenge, the act of dumping cold water with ice on someone’s head to promote awareness of the disease and encourage donations to research ALS, quickly turned from a fundraising campaign to a viral internet sensation and has raised more than $16 million!

Our research team was unable to find out how much water was wasted but we figured it's a lot. A LOT.
ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects the cells of the nerves found in the brain and spinal cord. This disease is generally developed between the ages 40 and 70, and affects men more than women. According to Dr. Alberto Ascherio, Professor of Epidemiology and Nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health, it is very important to understand the impact of food consumption on ALS during its developmental stage. Dr. Ascherio’s study examines the role of dietary antioxidants in preventing ALS.

To make the long story short, the team found that increased consumption of carotenoids was linked to reduced risk of ALS. Furthermore, the study also pointed out that individuals who consumed more carotenoids were more likely to exercise and have higher vitamin C consumption. Dr. Ascherio’s conclusion? Carotenoid-rich foods may help prevent or delay the onset of ALS.

ALS-free since 1940
When we say “carotenoid”, it means any class of mainly red, orange or yellow fat-soluble pigments, which includes carotene, that gives color to plant parts. Here are some examples of caratenoid-rich foods: carrots, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, spinach, lettuce, squash, cantaloupe, peppers, apricots, peas, broccoli, guava, kiwi, berries. Carotenoids are the one responsible in giving fruits and vegetables their bright color (mentioned above). They are a good source of Vitamin A too! Previous studies before Dr. Ascherio’s report that oxidative stress plays a role in the developmental stages of ALS.

Carotenoid buffet!
So eat up but don't overdo it. Remember it's easy to overdose with carrots. Eat healthy and to get the most benefits, toss in some supplements!

The adult majority in the United States take dietary supplements either every day or occasionally yet most people are still doubtful about the importance of taking supplements. Here are some reasons that could probably sway you to a different direction:
Picture
Yes, that's right. Read thy label.
Soil Quality
If we could go back in time, say 100 years ago or even back to the Stone Age, and get a soil sample and compare it with the present day’s soil, we would see that today’s soil is lacking important minerals than it is in the past and because of this, food grown is also deficient in minerals.

Modern Food Processing
Food has gone through a long process to make it more available to people all around the world. Shipping and storing foods for a long time causes the nutrients they contain to deplete. Plus, cooking methods like boiling, preservation, etc. further reduce whatever that’s left in the food. Now, if you rely solely on food for all your nutrition needs, this could be a huge problem.

You wouldn't eat paper, would you?
Genetically Bred “Healthy Foods”
If you have an apple sitting in your fruit basket, most likely it is genetically bred. A lot of fruits and vegetables are genetically bred so it will look perfect in the eyes of consumers. Who wouldn’t buy a spotless banana, a shiny red apple or a ridiculously leafy lettuce? These genetically bred fruits and vegetables might be lacking a lot of nutrients they should be having. You thought you’re eating healthy but you’re actually being scammed. We’re not generalizing though.

Individual Genetic Weakness and Needs
We all have our own genetic weaknesses: some people need higher amounts of a specific nutrient while others don’t. There are also times when we need more doses of certain nutrients during specific times in our lives like during pregnancy, illness, etc.

Replenishment
Modern technology had made our lives easier, that’s a fact but there’s another reality we have to face alongside all this modernity: increased levels of pollution in the air and water which also affects the quality of food. To cope up, the body uses more nutrients (antioxidants like vitamins A, C and E) to eliminate harmful substances more often that it normally would so you need to replenish.

It is very important to consult with a health professional before taking vitamins and supplements. Supplements with sweeteners (natural and artificial ones), preservatives and unnatural colors should be avoided.

Imagine: After a long day at work, all you want to do is to relax in bed and get a well-deserved beauty sleep. You do your usual routine of taking a shower, brushing your teeth and finally applying a nice night cream but as you open the bottle, it’s infested with green mould and smelled really bad! You see, that never really happened. Beauty product manufacturers add a special preservative to prevent this from happening. This preservative is called “paraben”.
Picture
Wish this was ice cream tho
What Is Paraben?
Go ahead and grab a lotion, toner, foundation, lipstick, any cosmetic and beauty product and read the label. Chances are, paraben is listed in the ingredients. Paraben is a group of compounds; it is mainly used as preservative in pharmaceutical products, cosmetic products and even in food! 
Picture
"Mom! There's paraben in my facial wash!" "Don't worry sweetie, that's okay."
Is Paraben Bad For You?
Netflix! I mean... chill. To simply put it in one word, the answer is no. Paraben got a bad reputation due to a misunderstanding on a research back in 2004. Not to mention the hype that was given to it by the media. The misconception spread like wildfire and paraben was pretty much hated even until today. What’s with the research, you ask? To make the story simple and short, paraben was mistakenly associated with breast cancer when paraben metabolites (metabolites are products of metabolism) were detected in the samples of breast cancer tissues but no claim was made that the presence of parabens caused breast cancer. In fact, parabens are broken down when absorbed by the body, metabolized and excreted by the body harmlessly according to a global research following the 2004 paraben scare.

Paraben is Naturally-Occurring
Paraben can be found in vegetables and fruits! Not only that, it is also present in everyday food items like beans, nuts and seeds, soy, berries, etc. And the amount of paraben in these foods is much more than the paraben in your beauty products! Have you ever heard someone getting cancer from apples and strawberries? There’s the answer. So keep calm and paraben.

Pa-ra-pa-pa-pa...raben... I'm lovin' it!

50-year old George Prior from Los Angeles, California documented his experiment that involves drinking not one, not two, but ten cans of Coca-Cola per day for an entire month!

35 grams of sugar per can so that’s 350g ingested every day. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the maximum amount of added sugars you should eat in a day are: 
  • Men: 150 calories per day (37.5 grams or 9 teaspoons). 
  • Women: 100 calories per day (25 grams or 6 teaspoons). 
As expected, the results were not good. George’s former healthy and muscular physique changed drastically. His Coke-devouring habit resulted in a pot belly, he lost muscular mass and his weight rocketed from 168 lb to 192. Not only that, his blood pressure also shot up from 129/77 to 145/96, that’s way above the ideal 120/80. This lead to an increased risk of heart disease or stroke. According to George, this experiment also made him crave for more and it came to a point where he was scared he might be addicted to Coca-Cola.

Picture
During the experiment, he still ate the usual healthy stuff he eats. He simply added Coke in the picture. Too much of it.
The aim of George’s experiment was "to raise awareness about how much sugar you drink every day, and to remind you how unhealthy it is." As he said on his website: "Maybe it's not all coke, but they're all sugar drinks, and a big percentage of Americans drink at least the sugar equivalent of my ten Cokes."

As a vitamin manufacturer and a supplement manufacturer company, we encourage everyone to be mindful of their sugar intake. This is the part where we will say: “Less is more”. Less sugar, more (longer) life. But don't just take our word for it, Listen to what George said as he concluded the experiment:
Watch his experiment:
