Consuming Dates May Prevent Night Blindness, Boost Brain Health, And Aid In The Treatment Of Intestinal Disorders

Rich in various nutrients, fiber, and antioxidants, dates are popular throughout the world and are consumed as dried fruit.

1. Good Source Of Energy
Dates are high in natural sugars like glucose, fructose and sucrose. The high energy present in them can be attributed to this high sugar content. Many people around the world eat natural low-fat dates for a quick afternoon snack when they are feeling lethargic or sluggish to help bump up energy levels fast.

2. May Boost Brain Health
A study led by Musthafa Mohamed Essa, Ph.D. et al. suggests that dates protect against oxidative stress and inflammation in the brain. According to research, “date palm fruits are a good source of dietary fiber and are rich in total phenolics and natural antioxidants, such as anthocyanins, ferulic acid, protocatechuic acid, and caffeic acid”. The presence of these polyphenolic compounds could potentially help slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

3. Relief From Intestinal Disorders
Research suggests dates contain insoluble and soluble fibers, as well as many beneficial amino acids which can stimulate the digestion of food and ensure quick passage through the gastrointestinal tract. According to a review published in the Journal of Nutrition Reviews, the fiber may also aid in the treatment of conditions like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), diverticulitis and hemorrhoids.

4. Prevent Night Blindness
Vitamin A deficiency is often linked to night blindness, along with other symptoms like dry eyes and an increased risk of infection. According to an article by H.A. Hajar Al Binali, M.D., dates are rich in carotenoids, which may help prevent night blindness and preserve healthy vision.



Do you have amalgam dental fillings? Do you use a cellphone ? If you do, then beware, the latest research shows that you may be particularly at risk.

There’s a considerable amount of research pointing to the dangers of radio frequency electromagnetic field exposures from cell phones. There is also significant research which points to the adverse biological consequences of mercury in amalgams. But what is not so well known is that research is now pointing to a link between the two.

Studies are now showing that EMF exposures can cause significant increases in the release of mercury into the body of those with amalgam dental fillings – especially due to cell phone radiation. But, the source of these EMF exposures are not necessarily just from cell phones, these EMFs may come from computer monitors, WiFi, televisions, microwave ovens and other appliances.

Editor’s note: 80% of disease symptoms are caused by problems in the mouth, and millions are exposed to disease-promoting dental procedures every day. Find out how to properly remove mercury-based ‘silver’ fillings plus much more.

In most people who have amalgam fillings it is their fillings that have been documented to be the largest source of mercury in their body. This is a concern because mercury is known to be a potent neurotoxin capable of causing these devastating immune and neurological conditions.

Irish scientists have tested coconut oil samples on streptococcus mutans. This is bacteria that glues to our teeth and causes dental erosion. For this reason coconut oil should be the main ingredient in toothpastes! Which is why it is one of our main ingredients in our toothpaste.

Coconut oil toothpaste

A research team from the Athlone Institute of Technology tested the antibacterial action of coconut oil in its natural state and coconut oil that had been treated with enzymes, in a process similar to digestion. The oils were tested against strains of Streptococcus bacteria. They found that enzyme-modified coconut oil strongly inhibited the growth of most strains of Streptococcus bacteria including Streptococcus mutans – a major cause of caries.

The group, who presented their work at the Society for General Microbiology's autumn conference at the University of Warwick, were prompted to investigate the effect of enzyme-modified foods on bacteria after many previous studies showed that partially digested foodstuffs are active against microorganisms.

Dr Damien Brady, the lead researcher, remarked: 'Incorporating enzyme-modified coconut oil into dental hygiene products would be an attractive altern-ative to chemical additives, particularly as it works at relatively low concentrations.' Coconut oil also kills the fungus Candida albicans very effectively (research) which is thought to play a major role in the manifestation of cancer. Common candida overgrowth symptoms include bad breath (halitosis), chronic fatigue, bloating, irritability, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, severe seasonal allergies, sensitivity to alcohol and products that come into contact with the skin such as deodorant and perfume.

One of the things you may have overlooked when going vegan is your toothpaste. Here is why so many vegans are adding UGLY by nature toothpaste to their daily regimen. 

Most toothpastes use glycerin, which is a sweet, odorless, clear liquid at room temperature and sourced from animal fat (pig and cow) and/or vegetable oil (corn or soybean). If your toothpaste states "vegetable glycerin", it is most likely from GMO corn and/or soy. Glycerin is most commonly used in toothpastes and soaps and it is added to toothpaste to keep it from drying out. It serves no purpose in oral care health.

UGLY by nature toothpaste DOES NOT use glycerin, instead we use organic coconut oil for its anti-fungal, antibacterial, antiviral, antimicrobial and anti inflammatory properties.

Coconut activated charcoal is also added to remove stains and keep your pearly whites WHITE.  

Another important ingredient is organic diatomaceous earth which contains silica. It's great for cleaning teeth and removing plaque and tarter. Silica plays an important role in promoting healthy teeth and bones.

We also use bentonite clay which binds to unhealthy substances, toxins and helps remineralize teeth. It is abrasive enough to remove plaque but not harm your enamel.  

The xylitol (sweetener) in UGLY by nature toothpaste is sourced from NON-GMO birch. Why do we use this? Xylitol decreases the incidence of dental caries by increasing salivary flow and pH 13 and reducing the number of cariogenic (MS) and periodontopathic (Helicobacter pylori) bacteria, plaque levels, xerostomia, gingival inflammation, and erosion of teeth (1). Xylitol may also be sourced from corn which is most likely GMO. Buyer beware!

UBN comes in 10 amazing flavors ORGANIC flavors. When "flavor" is listed as ingredient it can constitute anything and you really do not know what you are getting. 

We also filter water in the toothpaste thru reverse osmosis. This helps remove as much fluoride as possible, for a true fluoride free toothpaste.

With hundreds of 5 STAR reviews you can see why everyone is making the switch.

Chia seeds skin hydration ugly by nature toothpaste

By now, many of us have sprinkled chia seeds over our cereal, sipped it in our Kombucha, or blended some into a smoothie. But these healthful morsels are not just beneficial as food—chia has become a hot new beauty ingredient that boasts pretty amazing results.

Chia oil, when extracted, contains essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, as well as antioxidants called tocopherols, explains dermatologist Dr. Julie Russak. In fact, it has highest levels of antioxidants in the oil family—beating out other popular oils like flax.

As we age, Russak explains, the barrier of the skin’s outer layer (the epidermis) becomes compromised due to thinning, weakening cells, making it harder for skin to repair itself. Topical omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which chia oil has plenty of, actually help strengthen the epidermis. “The beauty of directly applying chia oil directly to the skin is you are delivering these potent, raw nutrients directly to the source of concern, enforcing the cell membrane and improving the texture and quality of the skin,” she says.
Omega-3 is not only an anti-aging property, it’s anti-inflammatory, too, making chia oil a great remedy for irritated and inflamed skin, Nazarian says. She adds that it’s even shown success in decreasing chronic and severe itchy skin.

Joshua Zeichner, director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research in Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, adds that these anti-inflammatory molecules not only soothe inflamed skin, they can even reduce UV damage, to boot.

Coconut oil for osteoporosis

Oxidative stress and free radicals have been implicated in the pathogenesis of osteoporosis. Therefore, antioxidant compounds have the potential to be used in the prevention and treatment of the disease. In this study, we investigated the effects of virgin coconut oil (VCO) on bone microarchitecture in a postmenopausal osteoporosis rat model. VCO is a different form of coconut oil as it is rich with antioxidants. Three-month-old female rats were randomly grouped into baseline, sham-operated, ovariectomized control (Ovx), and ovariectomized rats fed with 8% VCO in their diet for six weeks (Ovx+VCO). Bone histomorphometry of the right femora was carried out at the end of the study. Rats supplemented with VCO had a significantly greater bone volume and trabecular number while trabecular separation was lower than the Ovx group. In conclusion, VCO was effective in maintaining bone structure and preventing bone loss in estrogen-deficient rat model.

UGLY by nature toothpaste review

Thank you for the amazing review @jelainegodwin!! 🙏❤

Instagram Repost 👉 @jelainegodwin So, I've only used my new toothpaste a few times so far, but I really like it. I'm left with a clean feeling that doesn't leave an artificially sweet aftertaste. Thanks to @ugly_by_nature for making a toothpaste that is vegan, nonGMO, crueltyfree, glutenfree and free of fluoride. The fact there are also no artificial colors, no parabens, no preservatives is amazing too! I'm still getting used to no foaming agents, but I like the change. I took a 'before' picture so I can see the difference over time. All the reviews say there's a major difference in just a couple weeks. #yayforhealthyteeth

Red and blue food anti-cancer agents

Foods with the highest levels of the compounds were most effective at slowing cancer growth, with exotic purple corn and chokeberries stopping the growth of colon cancer cells and killing 20% in lab tests. Foods less enriched with the pigments, such as radishes and black carrots, slowed the growth of colon cancer cells by 50% to 80%. Because the pigments, which belong to a class of antioxidant compounds known as anthocyanins, are not easily absorbed by the bloodstream, they travel through the stomach to the gastrointestinal tract, where they are taken up by surrounding tissues.

Their survival through to the lower part of the intestine may be the key to their role in preventing cancers in the tract, the scientists believe.

Researchers led by Monica Giusti, an expert in plant nutrients at Ohio State University, extracted anthocyanins from a variety of exotic and more common fruits and vegetables that all had a deep red, blue or purple hue and added them to flasks containing a suspension of human colon cancer cells.

When the team calculated how much of each extract was needed to reduce cancer cell growth by 50%, they found anthocyanin from purple corn to be the most potent. Chokeberries and bilberries were nearly as effective, while radish anthocyanin required nine times as much - or 131 micrograms per millilitre of cancer cell solution to cut cell growth by half.

In a second study, the researchers fed rats with colon cancer a diet of anthocyanin extracts from bilberries and chokeberries, which are most often used as flavourings in jams and fruit drinks. Colon tumours in the rats fell by 60% to 70% compared with a control group that were not given anthocyanin.
