There’s a helpful chart below that shows the healthiest fats for glowing skin and hair, as well as for good nutrition of the organs and hormones. All hormones are formed with healthy fats, so eating more of these foods can nourish you in many ways.
Eating healthy fats with our meals can play a vital role in helping us sleep better and achieve overall greater health as these provide the basic building blocks for cholesterol production — a surprisingly healthy substance in our bodies. The best fats to eat are nutrient rich foods like eggs, natural butter, salmon, sardines, cod liver oil, avocados, nuts, seeds and coconut oil.
For example, a healthy heart and long life are associated with eating walnuts. They have been shown to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease and also extend life spans in general. Walnuts contain the amino acid l-arginine, which offers protective benefits for the heart.
Walnuts can be a good sleep inducing food. Eating a handful of walnuts before bedtime may be a good way to soothe sleeplessness and insomnia. Russel Reiter, Ph.D., a professor of cellular biology at the University of Texas says, “Relatively few foods have been examined for their melatonin content. Our studies demonstrate that walnuts contain melatonin and that it is absorbed when it is eaten.”
Avocados are a healthy, creamy, tasty food, whether they sit on top of a sandwich, an omelet or a salad — or become transformed into guacamole. The healthy fats in avocados balance hormones and this food features over twenty vitamins and minerals.
In summary, eating good healthy fats can enhance one’s health in many ways. This information is brought to you by Nutrition Breakthroughs, maker of the effective natural insomnia remedy Sleep Minerals II.
I’ve included an interesting and useful chart below containing healing herbs and spices – “A Medicine Cabinet in Your Kitchen.”
One good example is a healing herb that was the subject of a research study published in the journal “Circulation”. Researchers found that a pain ointment containing the main ingredient in cayenne pepper was able to reduce damage to the heart during a heart attack. An incredible 85 percent reduction in cardiac cell death was observed.
Cinnamon is more than a delicious seasoning. Studies from the University of Toronto and Ball State University in Indiana have confirmed that consuming cinnamon can significantly reduce blood pressure as well as blood sugar levels by adding cinnamon to the morning cereal.
Ginger contains many healing properties. For women with PMS, scientists at the University of Medical Sciences in Tehran, Iran compared ginger capsules with two different kinds of anti-inflammatory drugs. 150 women participated and they were divided into three groups. At the end of the five-month study, ginger was shown to be as effective as the drugs with relieving pain and providing relief.
Sage is a delicious herb used in cooking, particularly with poultry and pasta sauces, and it has a long history of use for medicinal purposes. It’s been used by herbalists to treat sore throats, strengthen the nervous system and improve brain function.
The German Health Commission officially approved the use of sage for excessive sweating and one German study found sage to reduce excessive perspiration by 50%. Sage leaf is also a well-researched remedy for hot flashes and night sweats in menopause.
Regarding the use of minerals such as calcium and magnesium for good sleep and remedying insomnia, William Sears, M.D. writes that: “Calcium helps the brain use the amino acid tryptophan to manufacture the sleep-inducing substance melatonin. This explains why dairy products, which contain both tryptophan and calcium, are one of the top sleep-inducing foods.”
In magnesium deficiency, chronic insomnia is one of the main, central symptoms. Sleep is usually agitated with frequent nighttime awakenings. On the other hand, a high magnesium diet has been found to be associated with deeper, less interrupted sleep.
An article from the science news website known as Eureka Alert has shared the results of a study on how calcium extends lifespans in women.
Here’s the news article:
Calcium supplements linked to longer lifespans in women – Study finds calcium-rich diet, supplements provide equal benefits
Chevy Chase, Maryland — Taking a calcium supplement of up to 1,000 mg per day can help women live longer, according to a recent study accepted for publication in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. (A note from the blog author Nutrition Breakthroughs: “endocrinology” refers to the actions of hormones in the body. Interestingly, in this study, the benefits of longer lifespans were seen when the calcium came from any source, including dairy foods, non-dairy foods or supplements. See a list of calcium-rich foods below).
Calcium, an essential nutrient for bone health, is commonly found in dairy products as well as vitamins. Although calcium is an essential nutrient for bone health, past studies have linked calcium supplements to heart disease risk. Researchers analyzing data from the large-scale Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study sought to clarify this issue and found moderate doses of calcium supplements had a beneficial effect in women.
“Our study found daily use of calcium supplements was associated with a lower risk of death among women,” said the study’s lead author, David Goltzman, MD, of McGill University in Montreal, Canada. “The benefit was seen for women who took doses of up to 1,000 mg per day, regardless of whether the supplement contained vitamin D.”
The study monitored the health of 9,033 Canadians (over a 12-year period), between 1995 and 2007. During that period, 1,160 participants died. Although the data showed women who took calcium supplements had a lower mortality (death) risk, there was no statistical benefit for men. The study found no conclusive evidence that vitamin D had an impact on mortality.
“Higher amounts of calcium were potentially linked to longer lifespans in women, regardless of the source of the calcium,” Dr. Goltzman said. “That is, the same benefits were seen when the calcium came from dairy foods, non-dairy foods or supplements.”
From the blog author Nutrition Breakthroughs: Some of the best food sources of calcium include kale, collard greens, yogurt, cheese, sardines with bones, canned salmon with bones, broccoli, okra, almonds, figs, navy beans, sweet potatoes and spinach.

When was the last time that you purchased whole milk and drank it without a second thought? If you’re like most Americans, you haven’t enjoyed whole milk in years.
This isn’t by accident. Full-fat dairy has been shunned by U.S government guidelines for many years. Even today, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that only babies under the age of 2 should drink whole milk.
As a result, it’s long been expected and encouraged that children and adults only drink skim milk or non-dairy alternatives. But is our avoidance of whole milk justified? Recent studies now suggest what many natural health experts have known all along: full-fat dairy supports our overall health and offers incredible benefits.
The Many Health Benefits of Full-Fat Milk
Instead of threatening the body’s health, the higher fat content of whole milk and whole milk yogurt actually seem to provide added benefits to the body.
While skim milk offers less than 10 mg of omega 3 fatty acids (healthy fats) per cup, whole milk contains 183 mg per cup! This is a dramatic difference considering that omega-3’s are known to improve risk factors for heart disease, fight inflammation, and boost brain health.
Whole milk is also rich in vitamin D, a fat-soluble vitamin that depends on the fat content of whole milk to be absorbed into the body and be used to generate energy, strengthen the immune system, and so much more.
In addition, milk is designed to nourish the body, so it is loaded with other nutrients like calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, and selenium.
Together, the contents of whole milk support the body’s well-being in many ways:
Warm milk is a well-known and time-tested sleep remedy thanks to its high concentration of magnesium and calcium. Both of these nutrients promote rest and relaxation by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, the part of the body responsible for slowing the heart rate and conserving energy. In fact, magnesium and calcium trigger the same chemical messengers as sleep drugs like Ambien, which are designed to treat sleep problems but come with many side effects.
If you want to enjoy the powerful mineral-based sleep benefits of whole milk or whole milk dairy, consider also using a mineral-based sleep remedy like Sleep Minerals II. These natural sleep aids are growing in popularity as more and more people are seeking to achieve high-quality sleep without the use of sleep drugs.
Sleep Minerals II contains highly absorbable forms of calcium and magnesium. It’s effective for sleeplessness and insomnia, as well as for heart health, restless leg syndrome, bone strength, menopause insomnia and teenage insomnia. It also contains vitamin D and zinc and is delivered in a softgel form mixed with natural rice bran oil, making it better assimilated than tablets or capsules and providing a deeper, longer-lasting sleep.
L.R.C. of Massachusetts says: “I had become dependent on sleeping drugs and couldn’t sleep without them. Now I take the Sleep Minerals before bed and I can sleep through the night without drugs. I’m also able to easily fall back to sleep if I do have to get up. Another benefit is that this helps alleviate my chronic fatigue and aches and pains.”

Here is a great chart of colon cleansing foods for better stomach and colon health. One example of a good cleansing food is the avocado. It contains fiber, vitamin C and healthy, plant-based fats, which all help with good digestion and elimination.
Dark leafy greens are some of the richest-mineral containing foods, and they also contain chlorophyll, which is the healthy nutrient in plants that makes them green. These greens soothe the lining of the stomach and adhere to any toxins to help eliminate them from the body.
Keeping well hydrated with plenty of clean, filtered water may be the number one, most important thing to keep things cleansed and moving smoothly. Drinking half a cup or a cup of water in the morning on an empty stomach can do wonders for cleansing the body. And be sure to drink it during the day in-between meals.

This is Jobee Knight from Nutrition Breakthroughs. I would like every customer of Sleep Minerals II to get the full benefits of the product and enjoy the restful, deep sleep they desire. Here are some tips and advice I’ve put together over the years, from learning how to coach people to use the product successfully.
Sleep Minerals II is the original drug-free calcium and magnesium formula for better sleep. It calms sleeplessness and insomnia and helps you to relax, fall asleep and sleep deeper.
It’s also helpful for heart health, restless leg syndrome, bone strength, menopause insomnia, muscle cramps, premenstrual syndrome and teenage insomnia. As well as containing calcium and magnesium, Sleep Minerals II contains vitamin D and zinc and is delivered in a softgel form mixed with natural rice bran oil, making it better assimilated and absorbed than tablets or capsules and providing a deeper, longer-lasting sleep.
Richard P. of Parkville, Maryland says: “The Sleep Minerals are making quite a difference. I was regularly waking up at around 3:00 a.m. and after a week or so my sleep improved quite a lot. I wake once a night to go to the bathroom, but the great thing is, I then fall back asleep and sleep several more hours. This has been a great improvement.”
Here are the tips on using Sleep Minerals II:
1) Some of my customers have asked me with amazement: “What is in this product? Is it really all-natural?” I want you to know that even though the product is effective at helping people fall sleep or get back to sleep in the night, it is made from only natural minerals and vitamins — it’s just a potent formula. Sleep Minerals II is a safe product. The factory that makes it has been certified as having Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and all ingredients are sourced in the USA.
2) Keep the bottle of softgels by your bed. For difficulty falling asleep, take 1 softgel with water 30 to 45 minutes before bed. Go to the bathroom before bed so you’re not woken up to go too often during the night. If you are sensitive to supplements or minerals, start with 1 softgel for several nights. In any case, its best to stay with one softgel for about a week.
If after a week or so you are unable to get to sleep, increase to 2 softgels before bed. Reduce the dose if you become drowsy during the day or your bowels become too loose. Use 1 softgel for kids over 10
3) Gradually building up the minerals in your system is the best approach to gaining better sleep. It may take days or weeks of use to get the best results. Some people start noticing good effects after the first or second week of use – some sooner, some later. Be sure to continue taking the product, as consistency is the key.
4) If you are taking the product before bedtime and have a drowsy feeling in the morning or your bowels become too loose, you can take it earlier than at bedtime. For example, take it with dinner or an hour or two before bedtime with a snack.
If one softgel continues to be too much, you can gently bite one end open and squeeze half the contents of a softgel into your mouth or onto some food. You can also open the softgel with the sharp point of a knife This is also a good approach if the softgels are too big for you to swallow. Save the other half in a baggie or other container.
This is worth doing if you find you need to, as some people require less to get better results. Even if you’re taking just half a softgel, it’s important to be consistent with it. Another option is to take a half before bed and another half if you wake up and can’t get back to sleep. Taking a smaller amount during the night (rather than a whole one) is better.
5) Important Note: If someone takes too much calcium for them, the formula may have a stimulating effect and keep them awake. If this occurs, reduce the amount you’re taking and it should have a more relaxing effect. If you’re only taking one, you can bite the end open and take just part of a softgel.
6) If you are taking any medications in the evening, its best to take them at least an hour apart from the Sleep Minerals. This is because each thing may have a different effect and its best to keep them separate.
I look forward to staying in touch with you and to hearing any questions, comments, or beneficial improvements to your sleep. Let me know how you do by emailing me at email@example.com.
Here is a helpful chart below with some healthy foods that are rich in calcium. In research studies, calcium has been shown to strengthen bones, prevent osteoporosis, relax the nerves and muscles, soothe insomnia, and remedy the symptoms of menopause and PMS.
Calcium is an effective insomnia remedy. A calcium deficiency is associated with difficulty in falling asleep per a study called “The Nutritional Relationships of Magnesium”. The author notes that the classical sign of magnesium deficiency is falling asleep rather easily, but awakening frequently throughout the night and finding oneself tired even after several hours of sleep.
Calcium and magnesium should be taken in a 2 to 1 ratio, with twice as much calcium taken as magnesium. This is from a study in the Journal of Physiological Reviews.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, one of the leading chiropractic and nutritional journals, published a study called “Hair calcium and magnesium levels in patients with fibromyalgia – a case center study.” Fibromyalgia is a condition with chronic pain, multiple tender points in joints and muscles and sleep disturbances. After their tests, the researchers found that calcium and magnesium supplements are indicated as an additional beneficial treatment of fibromyalgia.
Regarding calcium for good bone health, a recent study of 70,000 people from a report in the British Medical Journal confirmed that taking both calcium and vitamin D together on a daily basis significantly reduced the risk of bone fractures after menopause.

There’s a great chart below that shows some of the most famous and effective remedies for sinus infections and colds. For example, garlic is a commonly used cold medicine. It is widely used in Russia and is known there as “Russian Penicillin”. Garlic supports immune function and it can kill bacteria, parasites, fungus and the flu virus. One test-tube study showed that fresh garlic kills various viruses, including one which can cause flu like symptoms.
Horseradish is another plant that can ease throat and upper respiratory tract infections. It has been shown specifically to destroy the flu virus and reduce the severity of flu infections in animals. This plant is a member of the mustard family. You may have found that eating horseradish can make your eyes water and nose run. Indeed, it can create a similar release of watery fluids inside the bronchial passages of the lungs which helps to flush them out and wash away congestion.
Vitamin C is one of the most famous boosts to immunity. In addition to enhancing the activity of immune cells, vitamin C acts as a vital component in the production of collagen, the principal protein found in all connective tissues. By helping to maintain the strength and integrity of connective tissue structures, vitamin C keeps infections from spreading throughout the body (from the Handbook of Vitamins).

Here’s a handy chart that shows all the many benefits of walking. Whether it’s a walk around the mall or around the block, walking provides an almost unlimited number of health benefits.
Walking has been proven to remedy depression and boost one’s mood. A study from the Archives of Internal Medicine found that people who were experiencing depression improved greatly with daily walks. The researchers found that those taking the walks had as much betterment in their symptoms as those taking anti-depressant drugs and the benefits lasted longer than medications.
Another study from the Harvard School of Public Health discovered that regular, moderate physical activity such as brisk walking can extend one’s life by several years, even for people who are overweight – and these health betterments were demonstrated regardless of age, sex, weight or various health situations.
Walking remedies insomnia and helps good sleep. Studies at the University of Arizona found that walking more than six blocks a day at a normal pace significantly improved sleep at night for women. Scientists suspect that exercise helps set our biological clock into a consistent wake/sleep pattern, or it may boost the brain’s production of serotonin, a neurochemical that encourages sleep.
Here’s the “Top 20” chart:
