In Topic: Does vitamin e oil really work or just BS?

06 August 2014 - 12:39 PM

This is an old thread, but it's the only one I found on Vitamin E. I wanted to add something about taking vitamin E internally.  I learned today from my very smart chiropractor that food based vitamin E, like Cataplex E by Standard Process, can clear up acne if it's "hormone" based...wanted to throw this out there.  :)

firenature,

I love that you're enjoying your smoothies so much!!  That's awesome!!  I have heard that the longer you blend them (exposing the nutrients to air), the more nutrients they lose, and they do lose some nutrition while stored.  However, when I first started out, I made mine every other day and would store a day's worth in the fridge.  I still got great results doing it this way, so I'm guessing the majority of nutrients are still retained a day later.  If this method works best for you and this enables you to keep doing them, then I'd stick with it.  Thank you for sharing your story and recipe, which sounds super nutritious and delicious!  :)

The cultural arts are so important!  Art and music develop so many much needed skills and are a great stress reliever, which of course promotes overall health.  The movie, "Music of the Heart," has helped bring awareness to this, but I wish more was being done. 

 

Alternativista, what a great project you are working on, and they sure are lucky to have your help.  Have you heard of Urban Acres in Dallas, Texas?  www.urbanacresmarket.com.  They have recently created their own farmstead right in the heart of the city.  I wonder if the farm you volunteer at might get some ideas or inspiration from what they are doing?  I think it's so cool...such a smart, resourceful and much needed idea.

Zavvi,

Sorry for this very late reply!  I mostly do blending rather than juicing (though I should do more juicing!). I haven't seen any scars just disappear on myself but in regards to the video, I have heard stories of people who have had scars disappear after changing their diets.  I think there is a lot to the alkalinity argument.
