ZOOMER DOG: YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND

Zoomer The Dog
ZOOMER DOG
ZOOMER DOG

When I was a young girl I often romanticized battery operated toys; primarily because Momma was insistent about keeping them out of our house. She had no desire to hear me whine about dead batteries, or spend a small fortune shoveling them into toys I would be over within a week. As an adult of my own, I feel a similar alliance with imagination ran activities that inspire children to use their head rather than glowing screens and flashing lights. Zoomer, the robotic dog, has seamlessly melded both modern technology with creative play, and even responsible role playing. While Zoomer won’t leave an oil patch on your carpet when he pees, he certainly won’t be much fun to play with without constant love and patience from his new owner. If you’ve ever had to argue that the landlord won’t except pets, or your child simply isn’t old enough to care for a dog yet, consider this affordable solution that is sure to have them mesmerized far longer than the traditional 3 week phase.

Zoomer the Robotic Dalmation

Zoomer is incredibly simple to operate out of the box; that being said, this really is an impressive display of modern technology, and the toy itself is very complicated in build. Classified as a Dalmation, with more designs in the works, Zoomer has grip stabilized feet that walk/roll him around his surroundings and enable his flexible joints to perform impressive 360 degree tricks. Not only can Zoomer effectively move in a circle, zig-zag, backwards, and even full roll, but this little dog is impressively quite in operation, and lightweight. To get going, you’ll need to charge Zoomer about an hour for 20 minutes of constant play. This can be done via a micro-USB to USB/AC Adapter port on the underbelly of the toy, which can plug directly into any laptop for convenience, through the provided cable. While you’re waiting for your new best friend to charge, be sure to read the instructions. While Zoomer is classified for ages 5+, we found even our 11 year old needed some initial guidance to understand the patience of operation.

Zoomer the Robotic Dog

Ironically, the part which will frustrate younger owners the most is the aspect I found most beneficial. Zoomer understands English, Spanish, and French communication, but will take time to learn his owner’s voice and commands, much like a real dog. With over 40 tricks in his current repertoire, Zoomer provides endless hours of training, and claims to learn quicker when it is feeling ‘loved’. His LED eye panels easily communicate the mode and mood of the robotic dog. Gently press down on the dog’s nose and speak a command, always beginning with ‘Zoomer’ and watch as the dog obeys, or does something entirely random. If better pronunciation, or a louder command is necessary, Zoomer’s eyes will display question marks and the command may be given again. If Zoomer is left on and alone for too long her will wander, much like a real dog and ‘pee’ on items and even beg for attention.

Zoomer the Robotic Dog

I was surprised how realistic many of the command motions, and results were. Training Zoomer to ‘Shake a Paw’ proved to be one of the harder tasks as the owner must say the command in conjunction with performing a physical interaction in front of the dog’s sensor. This front sensor will also prevent Zoomer from walking into furniture, and allow him to ‘Follow’ his owner through the house. The initial start guide offers users some basic commands out of the box, but you will have to work to discover the remaining commands. The online Zoomer Pup website is very useful for unlocking an extra 10, with more added all the time, but you truly just have to pay attention to Zoomer when he is misbehaving and decipher what the coinciding command could be. For example, we saw Zoomer turn onto one paw and do a circle, as through he were break dancing, one time, and decided to try the command ‘Zoomer Dance!’ and, Voila! we had a dancing robotic dog. Zoomer also plays, or rather barks, 3 secret songs, so be on the lookout for those.

Zoomer is a little bit smaller than our 6lb Morkie, Nora, but only about 2lbs in weight. I was relived to see this robotic toy was very well designed with shock resistant joints and a clear encasing around his LED panel head. The antennae like tail bobbles too and fro playfully as the dog moves about, but it’s the interactive ears I find to be the weakest point on the dog. Always make sure these are pointed down, in sleep mode, when storing your dog. Sabrina, 11, immediately began walking the dog off small, 6″, drops in the living room table and up and down ramps. I’ve had my fair share of miniature heart attacks watching them play, but rest assured, this is one robotic dog that is designed especially for kid companions.

Zoomer the Robotic Dog
Zoomer The Dog Pees

I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that Zoomer stole the attention away from our real dog for quite a long time. I was a very good adult and let Sabrina, 11, explore her new toy on her own for the first round of charging. Ironically, Zoomer always seemed to respond to me and my commands instantly, while Sabrina often took 2-3 requests. We had an interesting incident where we were asking Zoomer to ‘Play Dead’ (video below the post) and he surprisingly began dancing- Sabrina burst into laughter. Perhaps that is one of the best things about this toy, there are always new tricks and actions for children to discover. When you get especially stumped, looking for new commands, try pushing the small button on the base of the dog’s back, which will initiate a random interaction. Zoomer moves around the house, carpet and linoleum, with impressive ease, but can often take a moment or two to complete a trick in full (especially ones that require him to lay down).

Zoomer the Dog

For the current price point, Zoomer is certainly one of the must have toys of the season, and 2014. I’m sure there will be a slew of similar toys coming to the market in recent months, but Zoomer has without a doubt been developed through years of labor and love, with kids in mind. Sabrina couldn’t wait for this thing to finish recharging when she first got it, and still plays with it every day, weeks later. She even brought it to the bowling alley on multiple occasions to show it off to the other children and parents. Having a toy like this is especially nice for kids who love attention, since this is one dog that doesn’t need a leash or an apology when it unexpectedly does it’s business. Zoomer is sold at retailers such as Toys R’ Us, Walmart, Target, and Amazon, worldwide, and is now available in Purple too! The only downside? Santa will NOT be able to top this toy, in our house, this Christmas!

What Daughter Says: Here’s one dog you can finally day yes to without breaking the bank, or your back. Teach kids responsibility with Zoomer, the robotic dog.

Ninja Professional Blender 1000 watts Review

Ninja Pro Blender Reviews

If you need to replace your standard sized blender, or if you’re buying one for the first time, the Ninja Professional blender 1000 watts (BL610) is one of your best options for its price range. It’s one of the best-selling blenders in the world, and there’s a great reason for that.

Everything You Need in a Blender

The Ninja Professional 1000 offers both power and convenience at an affordable price. What more does the average consumer need? Your blender should be powerful enough to give you smooth results, and easy enough to use so that it’s not a hassle to take it out and whip up a smoothie. Unless you’re using your blender for a business like a cafe or restaurant and you can make use of a lot of different features, the Nutri Ninja blender has everything you need.

An Extra Large Jar Means More Leftovers

The huge jar that comes with the Ninja Professional 1000 is 72 oz. That’s enough to make anything and plenty of it. You can make a massive smoothie and either put the leftovers in the fridge, or freeze them for later. The jar is quite big enough to prepare an entire soup, broth, or anything else that can be blended before cooking it. The jar is BPA free and dishwasher safe for quick clean up. The blade section comes out of the jar, which makes clean up far easier. It also makes it easier to get all of the blended food out and into your glass or bowl. Before buying the Ninja Professional blender 1000 you should read more the articles of best nutri ninja Auto iQ reviews.

A Unique Blade Design with Three Sets of Blades

The Ninja Professional Blender 1000 has an innovative blade design. Instead of the traditional set up of having one set of blades located at the bottom of the jar, it has two additional rows of blades attached to a rod protruding up from the base and into the center of the jar. This provides three times the slashing action to quickly and thoroughly blend through the thickest of foods. An even and thorough consistency that takes less time to complete than with a traditional blender is the result.

Safety Sensor on the Lid for Protection from Accidents

The top of the device includes a safety feature that prevents the blades from spinning if the lid is not secure. There is a sensor that detects whether or not the lid is locked into place. This protects you from messes and also helps keep children safe from any possible unfortunate accidents. It’s a unique feature that most others don’t include.

Super Fast 1,000 Watts Motor

The 1,000 watts motor on the Ninja Professional Blender 1000 has enough force to dice through ice, frozen fruit, and frozen vegetables at super high speeds. At its highest setting, it can turn a fully loaded jar into a smooth liquid in less than one minute. This blender’s Total Crushing Technology is a feature that is designed to shred ice better, resulting in a smoother consistency. The patented design is one of the reasons why the it has been so successful. If you toss in just ice, the Ninja Professional will turn it into snow in a matter of seconds. This is great for making drinks like margaritas.

Three Blending Speeds to Choose from

The Ninja Professional Blender has three different speeds, low, medium, and high. The ‘low’ speed setting is enough for fruits, vegetables, and non-frozen ingredients. ‘Medium’ can handle ice and frozen ingredients better, but ‘high’ will give you the best results for whipping through thick and frozen ingredients. The low setting comes in handy when you don’t want to make a lot of noise. Making a smoothie is rather loud anyway, especially when the blades are hacking up the ice cubes, but with a 1,000 watt motor on high, the sound will definitely travel into nearby rooms. Using low or medium instead of high can reduce the noise level for when your loved ones are sleeping.
The Ninja Professional also has a ‘pulse’ button. This is useful for getting a thick load of ingredients started slowly, repositioning ingredients, and doing a minor amount of blending to whatever ingredients you may not want to so thoroughly blend. If you want chucky or clumpy results on purpose, you should be careful because the powerful motor on this device can liquefy ingredients very quickly.
The four buttons provide you with everything you need to blend and prepare an unlimited amount of recipes. The only down side to this model is that its jar might be too big for some people. If you have limited fridge space, you might have trouble fitting the Ninja Professional’s enormous 72 oz jar inside. You can always transfer the contents to another container, but sometimes it’s nice to simply pop the lid back on and toss the whole container into the fridge without having to clean the jar yet. If you do have a roomy fridge, then obviously this won’t be a problem, but it would be nice to have a smaller jar included as well for times that you’re blending only a small amount of ingredients. It doesn’t quite feel right whipping up a small, quick marinade in an extra large jar.

Compare with Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart Blender Review

Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart Blender Review

Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart Blender Review this side of typical

Pros: This little blender is especially designed for preparing smoothies and milkshakes and it even has a specific button for them. All you have to do is add all the ingredients, press it and then wait. The blender does all the work. The lid fits perfectly and makes sure the ingredients don’t pour out of the jar.

Cons: The motor and the blades are not as powerful and they can only work on certain ingredients (it cannot crush peanuts for example).

In depth Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart Blender Review

The Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart blender is an average type of best blender for smoothies. It does have great features and works quite well for the price it is sold at, $40 – $50. It was designed specifically for making smoothies and milkshakes and this can easily be noticed, because it has two specific buttons for making them. You don’t need a manual to work on it, all you have to do is pick the ingredients for the smoothie, add them all in the blender, push the button and watch how the Hamilton Beach Smart Blender does all the work for you!

However, not all blenders are perfect and the Hamilton Beach is no exception to the rule. The main problem with this blender model is that it doesn’t have the power the expensive commercials ones like Vitamix or Blendtec do. It simply cannot crush peanuts or any other fruit or vegetables like this. Nonetheless, if your budget is tight, this is the perfect blender for you!

Smoothies = yes, Peanut Butter = no

The Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart Blender is one of the prettiest blenders out there. The features are numerous and the most useful ones include a specific button for making smoothies and one for milkshakes! However, not all is perfect with this blender.

One of the main disappointments about this particular model is the motor. Although it looks beautiful and it actually includes a button for smoothies, the motor is not as powerful as it should be. The blades cannot cut through fruits or vegetables with a hard exterior, which is a shame. You can’t make homemade peanut butter, simply because the blender does not have the necessary power to crush the peanuts.

All in all, this blender is a small beautiful one that unfortunately cannot handle hard fruits or vegetables. This means that it should only be used for smoothies and milkshake, a chapter which it definitely excels at.

 

Off to the good things now!

One of the best features of this blender that everybody mentions is the “Smoothie” and “Milkshake” button. Hamilton Beach took a very good decision when they opted to add a “Smoothie” button, as this is one of the main advantages of using a Hamilton Beach blender. All you have to do is gather all the ingredients, then put them all together in the blender, press the button and wait for your smoothie to be done! The same thing goes for milkshakes.

The blender’s components fit perfectly one in another, and they can easily be fit together once you take them out of the box. They also fit perfectly and no juice or mix of the fruits or vegetables will run out of the jar.

The design

Motor: 700 watt peak motor

Dimensions: 7.3 x 10.3 x 12.9 inches

Weight: 4.9 pounds

Features: A Smoothie button, easy to use, attractive design

Aesthetics: The Hamilton Beach blender has a very attractive design. It is small and the modern looking design looks great in any kitchen.

Functionality: The blender works perfectly for smoothies, although you have to blend the mix for a couple of minutes if you want a smoothie with absolutely no chunks of fruits in it.

Ergonomics: It’s small and attractive and can fit anywhere. It’s easy to work with it and you can put it together on your own in just a few moments after you’ve taken it out of the box.

So what’s the bottom line?

The bottom line is, the Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart Blender is a very cute small blender that can be very useful in any kitchen. The design is attractive, it’s small and light so it can fit in any cabinet and it’s specifically designed for making smoothies or milkshakes. All in all, it’s a perfect small blender, but you must keep in mind that the power of the motor is not so great, so you shouldn’t expect all that much from it.

How to Make Your Own Healthy Fruit Drink

Why would you want to make your own healthy fruit drink? Because it’ll have more antioxidants, of course!

There are tons of so-called “healthy fruit drinks” on the market. You see them in the fridge at the grocery store – some even have pictures of sparkling pomegranate and blueberries, and claims like “source of antioxidants”.

Is this kind of juice that healthy though? Don’t fall for the commercials you see on TV.

The boxed and bottled juice at the store (no matter how healthy-looking the label is) is not healthy for three reasons:

1. It contains up to 1 tsp of natural sugar per ounce

Not good for diabetics, obesity, or those with high blood pressure.

2. It has no fiber

Fiber soaks up and binds all the toxic matter into one package for the body to eliminate. It also balances pH, promotes weight loss, slows sugar absorption, reduces cancer, reduces cholesterol, prevents hemorrhoids and ulcers, and strengthens the heart.

Learn more about healthy fiber foods here.

3. It is pasteurized

The fruit juice is heated at high temperature for preservation reasons. This means it loses its beneficial enzymes, and 25-80% of nutrients and antioxidants!

 

Making your own healthy fruit drink is such a better option. Plus it saves packaging, and it’s easy.

Of course, eating ripe organic fruit is still the best and easiest option. But sometimes you want something a bit more exotic, or to entertain guests.


SMOOTHIES

It’s as simple as throwing everything in the best blender for smoothies. You should research on the internet before choosing the blender which you will use for making smoothies for along time.

If you want the benefits of fibre, use your blender to make these delicious smoothie recipes:

(Hint: the recipes yield 2-3 servings, so share your healthy fruit drinks!)
PINK DELIGHT

2 bananas

1 pint strawberries

½ avocado

1 cup water

DEEP PURPLE

2 bananas

1 pint blueberries

1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice or 2 whole oranges

BANANGO

2 frozen bananas

2 mangos or 1 ½ cup frozen mango chunks

GREEN SMOOTHIE (You haven’t had a green smoothie? TRY THIS OUT!)

1 banana

1 mango

1 kiwi

2/3 handfuls of spinach

3/4 cup water

JUICES

If you like a light clear drink, you can juicecombinations of fruits (using a juicer).

This way you can also sneak veggies into the juice, without compromising flavour or sweetness.

Use a juicer to make these healthy fruit drinks:


DELISH

5 pears

3 carrots

1 apple

GREEN APPLE JUICE

3 apples

½ lemon

1 bunch kale

BREAKFAST WINE

2 apples

1 beet

3 carrots
ENJOY!!!

Some of these healthy fruit drink recipes are from Fresh: The Ultimate Live-Food Cookbook by Sergei and Valya Boutenko.

I love using it for light and fresh antioxidant-packed recipes. There’s over 250 easy recipes, and they are totally original. Sergei and Valya’s simple and gourmet food has flavour unlike anything you ever tasted.

“Not only do Sergei and Valya prepare the most delicious raw foods, which is talent enough, but the clarity, wisdom, and insights they share about foods and health are breathtaking. This book is a must-read for any aspiring health seeker – no question. What they teach now is unbelievably cutting-edge, and everyone should know it.”

Understanding free radicals and antioxidants

Imagining the molecular level is important in understanding free radicals and antioxidants.

Let’s talk about free radicals…

Oxygen is one of the worse free radicals. See, oxygen is two-faced.

Oxygen gives life to everything by fueling mitochondria: little energy plants in the cells. The same life-giving qualities cause it to react with things it shouldn’t (think: a cigarette sparking a forest fire).

There are different oxygen molecules, and some kinds are extremely reactive.

A well-balanced atom has a nucleus at the center, with the right number of electrons surrounding it.

Under certain circumstances these atoms lose an electron or two –becoming radicals, or free radicals.

The free radicals wander around looking for replacement electrons attached to other atoms. None of them are more reactive than oxygen radicals.

This process is nothing new. Oxygen radicals and other free radicals have been forming since the beginnings of life.

“Living creatures have struggled to evolve ways and means of neutralizing these feckless allies [free radicals] since the very beginnings of life.” – Dr Bryce Wylde (The Antioxidant Prescription: How to Use the Power of Antioxidants to Prevent Disease and Stay Healthy for Life)

For a really good understanding of free radicals and antioxidants, I recommend reading “The Antioxidant Miracle “


Why is understanding free radicals and antioxidants so important now?

These days, our unhealthy lifestyles and environment are exponentially increasing the creation of free radicals in our bodies!

We don’t get enough antioxidants to combat the effect.


Why do free radicals even exist?

Well, they don’t “exist”, they form. Through the natural metabolic process free radicals are constantly being created, at the rate of around 1000 per cell an hour! And they aren’t all bad.

Another fun fact of understanding free radicals and antioxidants: free radicals are actually nature’s preferred mechanism of self-destruction. This is after they reach the Hayflick limit.

The Hayflick limit: Normal human cells can only divide 52 times before effectively committing suicide. This is called apoptosis. The theory is that we age because of this set cell “lifespan”. Other circumstances can radically speed up the process.

Some free radical molecules are actually essential components of the immune system. In some cases they are needed by the body; put to use when we try to remember, fight a cold, or feel sexually aroused.

The free radicals nitric oxide and superoxide are used for opening blood vessels and poisoning invasive viruses and bacteria.

Our immune system uses certain free radicals to kill cancer cells before the cancer grows.

Did you know? Many cancer drugs work by temporarily increasing the production of free radicals in the body. That is how radiation destroys a cancer tumor.

There is no avoiding free radical formation

Many chemical reactions are constantly occurring in the body during regular metabolism. During these reactions, oxygen atoms are constantly losing atoms, creating free radicals.

They are also formed as a by-product of the natural metabolism and inflammation process. If free radicals are not neutralized quickly, degenerative diseases and faster aging result.

This process is similar to rusting. Rust is the reaction of iron with the same oxygen radicals that “rust” our bodies.

They are everywhere…where there is life, there is the free radical – good or bad. That will help you in understanding free radicals and antioxidants.

As they delve deeper into the study of DNA, scientists are seeing that free radicals are at the root of every possible disease.

“In the last thirty years, free radical research has led to profound biochemical, biological and medical advances. Our knowledge of radicals has grown, and as it has grown, it has enhanced our understanding of how DNA mutates and the important role radicals play in cancer, cardiovascular disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and autoimmune diseases.”

“At the molecular level, free radical damage is the cause of all disease...what happens at the molecular level inevitably affects our overall health” – Bryce Wylde (The Antioxidant Prescription)

The greatest cause of free radical formation is our exposure to environmental toxins:

• Carbon dioxide emissions

• Industrial pollutants

• Cigarette smoke

• Radiation

• Food additives

• Plastic off-gassing and leaching

Lifestyle factors also contribute. I am talking about stress, trauma, alcohol, deep-fried and artificial foods, and overly strenuous exercise.

Life is continually exposed to oxidative stress from the inside and outside. Living cells and organisms developed defense mechanisms for protection. This is where antioxidants come in.

Viking Blender Review

The Viking blender has comparable features to much less expensive blenders. However it does not seem to have as many breakage reports, making it a good buy.

The Viking blender is a good standard basic kitchen blender, although a bit pricy for what you get. We don’t see many breakage reports so the quality seems to be good. In terms of features and engine power the Viking matches up to what you would see with some of the cheaper blenders in the $50 range. However the Viking is about 3 times as expensive. The good thing about it is that it seems to be more durable and of higher quality than the cheap blenders, which tend to break very quickly and easily.

Viking Blender

Viking Blender

The Good

  • Easy to clean – the blades separate easily from the jar for easy cleaning, and the jar is dishwasher safe.
  • Good Pitcher – a strong glass pitcher shaped to create a blending vortex
  • Precise control – the knob on the front is easy to operate and offers a high, low, and pulse setting.
  • Stable – the unit does not bounce around

 

The Bad

  • Poor quality plastic lid – the lid is a little flimsy not of the highest standard
  • Expensive – certainly not the most expensive blender on the market, but comparing the Viking to other blenders with similar features, it is a bit overpriced.

Viking produces one countertop blender model, the VBLG professional. It also makes one hand blender model, the VHB professional hand blender.

 

Features

The Viking blender features a professional grade, high torque, 390 watt motor with an electronic mixing sensor to keep the speed continuously smooth, and 300 grade stainless steel blades. The 40 ounce glass jar connects to the base with an interlocking system to prevent the motor gears from stripping and being damaged. The Viking also produces a cyclonic blending action as a result of its blade shape and tempered glass carafe design. The cyclonic blending circulates the fluid rapidly in the jar, which results in more efficient blending.

It is also very easy to disassemble the jar and blade of the Viking machine for cleaning. The Viking is very stable due to the rubber feet on the bottom of the die cast metal base. It has 2 speeds and a pulse function.

Owners say these knob settings seem firm as they click into place for each setting. They also say it is a very solid feeling machine. This blender is working well for making a healthy smoothie.

Not Sure About Red Wine Antioxidants…?

There is a lot of buzz about red wine antioxidants; namely its resveratrol, quercetine and bioflavanoids.

But does this mean you should start drinking red wine for your health? Or is this an excuse to continue alcohol consumption?

We look at arguments from two health experts:

In the recent field of antioxidant study on the body, many professionals will recommend moderate intake of red wine (no more than 1 wine glass a day) for its high antioxidant content.

What about the alcohol content though? Health professionals have always told us that alcohol is a definite no-no. There is no place for it in a healthy diet – because of its effect on the liver, kidneys, and cells in general.

o the debate is up on red wine antioxidants.

I will present both sides of the argument, and then let you decide what is right for you.

Personally, I believe that moderate consumption of red wine in social situations is nothing to be afraid of. But I don’t think taking it up as a daily hobby is necessary if you feel you need more antioxidants for your health.

There are better ways… consider flavanol rich chocolate!

Nevertheless, here are the arguments:

It is established that red wine antioxidants are greater than those in black tea, orange juice, and apple juice.

Dr Bryce Wylde (author of The Antioxidant Prescription) says “One glass of red wine (preferably Cabernet because of the higher ORAC value and the procyanidin content) per day for women and two for men is ideal.

By glass, I mean no more than 150 to 300 mL (5 to 10 ounces). Lots of studies suggest that red wine can keep you smarter, maintain a healthy and strong heart and protect your blood vessels from plaque development.”

The most studied antioxidant in red wine is resveratrol.

Dr Wylde tells us that “The potent antioxidant substances resveratrol and quercetin, found in red grapes, also protect your heart against damaging free radicals.

But the amount of resveratrol in red wine isn’t enough; to reap resveratrol’s benefits, you’ll need the supplement form…Resveratrol in the high amounts found in supplements can protect against cancer and reduce the risk of inflammatory diseases, gastric ulcers, stroke and even osteoporosis.”

Red wine offers many other health benefits, including a reduction in platelet aggregation (blood stickiness) and flexibility of blood vessels that go to the brain.

It’s interesting to note that the antioxidant value of red grape juice in its pure form is nearly as good for you as red wine. Drinking wine occasionally at parties does not necessitate alcoholic help, but doing so with increasing frequency and in much larger quantities might.

For some, it might be best to just avoid red wine for the reason that alcohol is highly addictive.

Dr Wylde also acknowledges the risk of over-consumption, because many of us can find it hard to stop drinking at one or two glasses.

Going over the limit (more than a glass or two) leads the creation of free radicals, not protection from them.




Warning about the negative effects of alcohol consumption.“Liver cirrhosis as a result of alcohol abuse is one of the ten leading causes of death in the United States.Individuals with a family history of alcohol problems should not begin drinking in response to any positive studies of the benefits of red wine, nor should those with pre-existing health conditions, including:

• Arrhythmias or irregular heartbeats

• High blood pressure

• Liver disease

• Severe acid reflux

• Sleep apnea

• Stomach ulcers

Alcohol may also interfere with certain prescription medications, making them lethal or ineffective.

Excessive or chronic use of any alcohol can result in a number of health conditions:

• Elevated levels of triglycerides in the blood

• Increased risk of breast cancer

• Increased risk of cancers of the mouth, pharynx, larynx and esophagus

• Increased risk of liver cancer

• Liver cirrhosis

• Obesity

• Osteoporosis”




When it comes to red wine antioxidants, it’s all about moderation.

Can we honestly say it is healthful though?

Yes, there are many antioxidants in red wine, which we know are necessary to combat free radical damage, but we should weigh the pros and cons carefully.


Do the negative effects outweigh the positive effects of red wine antioxidants?

MD Gabriel Cousens (MD, homeopathic physician, Tree of Life, author of Spiritual Nutrition) believes that maintaining healthy cell “terrain” is the key to optimal health.

He talks about fermentation in the body by microscopic life forms – mycrozymas. They are living colloidal elements that feed off and ferment the sugar in our system.

The mycrozyma is the smallest living unit in nature and in our bodies, much smaller than cells.

When the body got too acid/toxic the natural fermentation process in the body is accelerated, and there is a “morbid evolution” of the microzymas.

They mutate into bacteria, yeast, fungus, and eventually mold. As these “morbid” forms from the microzymas develop, they feed on our vital body substances and produce more toxins, which we call mycotoxins.

This toxic process is behind all degenerative disease and aging.

Gabriel Cousens knows what he’s talking about. He has been studying cell biology and observing this effect in people’s blood samples for many years.

Dr Cousens affirms that alcohol is one of the factors contributes to mycotoxic process. He advises us to avoid it in general.

In his book Spiritual Nutrition he writes:

“…Red wine also has a number of phenolics, the most important being resveratrol and quercetin, which alter gene expression and enhance phenotypic expression to protect against blood clot formation as in heart disease. Resveratrol also has certain anti-aging qualities that are recently being touted to mimic the calorie restriction effect.

However, red wine also has the downside of being alcohol. Alcohol does many things to disregulate and undermine healthy gene expression, particularly in the neurotransmitter systems, as well as other systems in the body. Resveratrol, quercetin, and the bioflavanoids can easily be gotten from substances other than red wine.” (P 322)

 

My conculsions…

Do not fear red wine!

The truth is that most of us drink, at least socially.

Of course organic Cabernet red wine is a far healthier choice than liquor, beer, or even white wine. In fact, in small quantities it has beneficial effects (moreso for people of Mediterranean descent).

Just remember moderation is key.

However, this is not a reason to take up drinking a glass a day (if you don’t already). There are still many better food and drink choices if you want the equivalent of red wine antioxidants’ boost to your diet.

If you are concerned with complete and optimal health, have the exisiting conditions mentioned above, or are doing a cleansing diet, you should avoid red wine – due to the alcohol content.

Otherwise, in Bryce Wylde’s words “Live a little!” and enjoy a few benefits of red wine antioxidants.
