Shed Some Light on Your Insomnia

Amberleigh CarterComment

If you experience insomnia or have trouble sleeping, you could be in need of exposing your skin to sunlight for at least 20 minutes, daily. 

The lack of sunlight slows down energy production, consequently, releasing adrenaline.  Adrenaline leads to insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, cravings, and increased stress on the body.  Sunlight helps treat insomnia, anxiety, and depression, while it also increases cognitive function, decreases food cravings, improves immunity, protects your tissues from free radicals, and boosts your metabolism.

Just another reason to go toward the light...but don't forget to eat your coconut oil, first!

Sun Worshippers...It's Your Lucky Day

Amberleigh CarterComment

All of you sun worshippers out there most likely battle between wanting that sun-kissed glow and risk getting another wrinkle.

Here's a tip: according to Ray Peat, Ph.D., sun exposure and the aging effect are variable and depends on our hormones and diet.

Two groups of shaved rabbits were fed diets containing either corn oil or coconut oil.  After being exposed to direct sunlight, the animals that ate corn oil developed prematurely wrinkled skin, while the animals that ate coconut oil didn't show any harm from the sun exposure.

Now, I wouldn't want to look like a shaved rabbit, but if I did, I'd want to be a wrinkle-free one :)  Eat your coconut oil and go enjoy those rays.
