How many balls do you have in the air right now? Work, family commitments, bills… we juggle so much every single day it’s no wonder depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide with more than 300 million people suffering globally. So how can we cope? Click here for some practical tools to keep you sane in this crazy world…

1. Drink More Water

Dehydration is linked to depression and other mood disorders because 85% of the brain tissue is water. But how much is enough? It all depends on your weight, outside temperature and how much you exercise. The best way to tell if you’re drinking enough is the color of your urine, if it’s a pale yellow you are adequately hydrated but if it’s dark yellow start pounding the H20. Water quality is also an important factor, get yourself a good filter so your water source is clean and pure.



How To Reverse Brain Fog In Less Than 20 Minutes

Over 70 percent of the human body is composed of water and every single function in the body relies upon proper hydration, including the activities of the brain and nervous system. Lack of water to the brain can cause numerous side effects, such as difficulty with focus, memory, brain fatigue and brain fog, as well as headaches, sleep issues, anxiety, depression and moodiness. What most people don’t realize is that the average adult loses up to two liters of water a day through sweating, breathing and eliminating waste. If you are not topping up your body with water throughout the day, then this can have a dramatic effect on your brain function and overall health.



Hemp Food Products Approved For Consumption In AU & NZ

After an ongoing campaign, low-THC hemp seeds have finally been deemed fit for human consumption and hemp seed based foods are now approved for sale in Australia and New Zealand, effective as of 12 November 2017. Prior to this approval Australia and New Zealand were the only western countries that banned hemp in food form! This is despite the fact that across Europe, Canada and the US, hemp seeds have been widely enjoyed in food and oil form for many years and have been proven to be a highly nutritious and sustainable food.

It is astounding how hemp seed food products have previously been so restricted in Australia and New Zealand, but their association with marijuana meant they were demonised – falling under a classification that prohibits all species of cannabis from being added to food. However, you can’t get ‘high’ from the hemp foods now approved to be sold in Australia as they are too low in the hallucinogenic substance THC (delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the cannabinoid associated with the psychoactive properties of marijuana.



How Does Olive Oil Support Liver Cleansing?

Over 30 million people in the United States live with a liver-related health concern.[1] Typical Western diets filled with toxins like sugar and alcohol certainly don’t help. In fact, severe liver conditions like non-alcoholic fatty liver disease are on the rise in the United States.[2] If your liver health isn’t where you want it to be, then you should know all the resources you have at your disposal.

Toxins and chemicals are the root cause of almost any serious health concern, and your liver is no different. Liver cleansing, when done correctly, can help flush the liver of accumulated bile, toxins, and chemicals. Additionally, relieving your liver of harmful organisms will help you maintain a healthy body and mind. While there are different variations of organic liver cleansing regimens, nearly all take advantage of one key component—olive oil.
