Going RAW is great way to make your calories count. RAW foods are noted for nutrient density. Empty calories versus nutrient dense. For example, a small red apple has about the same amount of calories as 2 teaspoons of refined sugar. But when you eat the apple, rather than sugar, you get so much including fibers (soluble and insoluble), vitamins, water, antioxidants, enzymes and probiotics. When you eat the sugar its empty, nothing else comes with it like with the apple. So next time there is a choice between fruit and cake, grab the fruit and GO RAW!

Alzheimer's disease and memory loss in America is hitting record numbers. Low magnesium status can accelerate brain cell aging and memory loss. Standard magnesium offers limited protection to brain cells. Magnesium-L-threonate is a new form of magnesium that dramatically boosts levels of magnesium in the brain. Boosting brain magnesium with magnesium-L-threonate enhances synaptic density and plasticity, the structural basis of learning and memory. In numerous experimental models, supplementation with magnesium-L-threonate has been shown to enhance memory and cognitive performance in multiple tests.
