100% organic products

Pure organic.

I want to tell my readers about these wonderful and somewhat unusual products that are not well known in America but are very popular in the rest of the world. Herbal Organic Skin Care and Skin Treatment Products by Herbs of Kedem, Israel. The reason for it’s popularity? It is effective and 100% organic. Another benefit of using plants for skin care is that they are environmentally friendly. “Plants produce a lot of chemicals in a very clean manner, without polluting the environment, without emitting toxic substances. They work with enzymes that do everything in a sophisticated way,” said Dr. Amir Kitron from the Judea Desert R&D Center. Kedem products are distributed in United States by www.DeadSeaHerbs.com. In the Judean desert, Herbs of Kedem, specializes in plants cultivated in a very specific desert region: the dunes located between the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth, and the cool Hebron hills. Research conducted by Dr. Nissim G. Amzallag, the company’s founder, has shown that these plants contain compounds that allow them to adapt to the harsh and extreme climates of the region. In this climatic transition two vastly different plant populations meet.  This makes the plants produce specific  hormones, and in other cases a rich content of aromatic oils. Extensive research by Dr. Amir Kitron from the Judea Regional R&D Center, along with other researchers, has revealed medicinal applications of these herbs.  Since 1998, also  the cultivation of these herbs in the Judean Desert has begun.

Herbal remedies have been used for thousands of years to treat lung disorders and are still considered a primary asthma treatment in many countries. Some have shown promise in research, but more studies are still needed to find out for certain what works and what’s safe.

Immune system

Healthy immune system

While vitamin C is probably the first thing on most people’s minds, there are plenty of other vitamins, minerals and nutraceutical ingredients that can help protect the body. Researchers around the world are always looking for new ways to boost immunity. And later this month, a number of those researchers are gathering in one place.

On October 28, the International Society of Antioxidants in Nutrition & Health will sponsor the 2nd World Congress on Immunity Ingredients “to discuss the latest advances on immunity and health and how to boost the immune health system.”
According to organizers, the conference will specifically focus on “the innovations in probiotics, prebiotics and antioxidants applications … dedicated to immune system of babies, seniors, obese individuals and diabetics by these immunity modulators.”

There will also be presentations on how antioxidants can help protect the skin, early-life nutrition and the links between immunity, obesity and gut microbes. But probiotics will be center-stage at the event, a topic that the Isotonix Blog and maBlog have discussed in the past.

Research has shown  probiotics to support immunity, as well as other important areas of one’s health. Probiotics, tiny microorganisms that help maintain a healthy balance of essential bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, are becoming increasingly popular in today’s health & nutrition market.
It is important to understand, though, that while some products claim to provide large quantities of probiotics, the diversity of strains, total bacterial count and protection of the probiotics are key elements in a powerful product.
