A Natural Approach to Rising Health Epidemics
Modern research shows that over 93% of the world’s population will encounter at least one of these ailments in their lifetime. With advances in science and an understanding of the human body, these companies aim to make these health risks a thing of the past. Using an all natural approach is believed to be the key to having the body heal itself rather than becoming chemically dependent on substances that can cause harm in other areas.
Diabetes affects an estimated 422 million adults world-wide. The number has quadrupled since 1980, now affecting 8.4% of the adult population. The most common form is Type 2 diabetes, accounting for 95% of all cases. In Type 2, the body can’t use insulin the right way. As Type 2 progresses, the pancreas makes less and less insulin allowing sugar to build up in the blood stream. Fortunately, Type 2 diabetes is preventable and treatable. If ignored, diabetes can lead to life-threatening complications like heart disease, foot damage or amputation, nerve damage, and even Alzheimer’s.
At the time of this article more than 2 billion adults are overweight. Once considered a high-income country problem, weight epidemics are rapidly rising in both low- and middle-income countries as well, particularly in urban settings.

Obesity is now considered the number one killer and will claim more lives than both cancer and smoking combined.
Do you eat fried foods, drink alcohol, or smoke? Do you ever eat nonorganic foods? Do you live in a city? If yes, then you’re exposed to a DAILY assault from free radicals. Free radicals are in pesticides, air pollutants, the foods you eat, and even the water you drink.
Free radicals are unstable molecules. They cause damage to your body through oxidation, the same process that turns an apple turn brown. Free radicals rampage through your body reacting with compounds and oxidizing them. High levels of oxidative stress affect every organ in the human body and lower the quality of your blood. This speeds up aging of the body and mind and causes a wide range of illnesses and diseases like cancer.
You can fight free radical damage with antioxidants, the “free radical scavengers”. Antioxidants help prevent, neutralize, and eradicate free radicals before they damage vital molecules.
