Anti-Inflammatory Foods a Blog Post by Betty Melkon

Low levels of chronic inflammation are the root cause of most chronic diseases, like arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In addition, today’s modern diet lead’s to reduced control of infection, increased rates of cancer, and increased risk for allergic and auto-immune disease. Practicing the Mediterranean diet and moving away from processed food products can lead to less inflammation and better health. Eating plenty of fresh vegetables, little to no red meat, certainly no chemicals or additives, and an abundance of omega-3 foods is beneficial. We need to concentrate on Antioxidant foods, Minerals, and Essential Fatty Acids.

Our best practice is to ADD the following foods into your daily diet:

  • Organic Dark Green Leafy Vegetables
  • Organic Celery, Broccoli, Beets
  • Organic Blueberries, Pineapple
  • Organic Chia and Flax Seeds
  • Walnuts
  • Organic Coconut Oil
  • Organic Ginger and Turmeric
  • Red Sockeye Salmon


Glutathione – Mother of all Antioxidants


Mother of all Antioxidants/Most Important Molecule to Stay Healthy and Prevent Disease.

GLUTATHIONEA Blog Post by Betty Melkon

According to Dr. Mark Hyman, MD, Director of Functional Medicine at Cleveland Clinic, a deficiency in this molecule has been found in nearly all of his chronically-ill patients in the last 10 years. There are more than 89,000 medical articles on this subject.

Our bodies produce it, but with poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation, we are all deficient in glutathione.

Glutathione is critical because it recycles antioxidants, helps our immune system fight infections and prevent cancer, and carries toxins into the bile and stool for elimination.

Bioactive Whey Protein, made from non-denatured proteins, is a great source of cysteine and the amino acid building blocks for glutathione synthesis. It MUST be sourced from GRASS-FED COWS and it MUST be UN-denatured.

Sulphur-Rich Foods, like garlic, onions, and cruciferous vegetables(broccoli, cauliflower, dark-green leafy vegetables) are key to getting more glutathione into the body.
