How to Keep Your Glutathione Up with Exercise and Recoveryby Barbara Depta
Your master antioxidant, glutathione, is endogenous - meaning it’s not an antioxidant you take as a supplement, it’s one that your body makes (see more in our last post).
However, making sure you have enough isn’t just about eating the best building blocks of glutathione. Having enough glutathione is also about minimizing triggers for chronic inflammation and oxidative stress in the first place, and then giving your body a chance to manage its own antioxidant and anti-inflammatory responses.
Not your normal antioxidants: Glutathione and Sulfurby Barbara DeptaOne is an antioxidant and the other a mineral, but you won’t find either on a nutritional label. Why are these two so important? How do you eat to increase your levels and your oxidant-fighting capacity? Well let’s talk about it next!
Nutrition and Your Own Antioxidantsby Barbara DeptaCounting your macros - aka. your macronutrients carbs, fat, and protein - is all the rage these days. But if you’re not making sure you get your micronutrients too, you might not be getting the results you’re after. Let’s take the guesswork out of what to eat to support your body’s defenses so you can get to living your best life.
The Chemistry of Movement!by Barbara Depta
Have you ever wondered how much body mechanics affect body chemistry and what it really means to your health?
Dr. David R. Seaman suggests that the best way to look at it is that when you think about the body itself, keep in mind our musculoskeletal tissues are made of chemistry – proteins, fats, carbohydrates, water, vitamins, and minerals.
Therefore, we should stop thinking that body mechanics and our daily movement are distinct from body chemistry.
“When you're moving, the movement itself creates more chemistry so the whole thing is chemical from beginning to end and it doesn't change..."
Not Every CBD Product Has Medicinal Power!by Barbara Depta
“Can you personally distinguish full-spectrum hemp oil from broad-spectrum, isolate, or hemp seed oil?” That’s just one of many other questions health practitioners ask themselves about hemp-derived products.
And it is an important question to ask even if you want to use CBD products for your personal purposes at home.
But the two most important question you need to ask yourself are:
- Is it legal for companies to sell CBD products as a supplement in the US?
- If I do want to buy CBD-based products, what should I be looking into to make sure I am safe?
Key Reasons Why You Should Consume Aronia Berryby Barbara DeptaWe know that nutrition plays a huge role in our health. Incorporating foods that improve redox status and reduce inflammation with antioxidant-rich foods or healthy fats is a great way to promote your health and support daily performance.

There are more studies coming out on how berries support our health from different angles. In the last decade, researchers and scientists have created berry symposiums across the world, where they discuss their clinical data on how berries can positively affect our systems from our heart, stomach, brain, metabolism, and more.
Red Spinach (Not Green!) to Support Your Cardiovascular Healthby Barbara Depta
As an almost 40-year-old woman, diet matters to me tremendously as I know how much it impacts my energy levels.
That’s why quality always comes first with energy-promoting nutrients.
Who does not want energy, right?
We all need it for different purposes. And you definitely do not need to be an endurance athlete to desire keeping up with your daily tasks, and never having to worry about your energy levels declining as the day goes on.
I always look for whole foods - natural food ergogenic aids - to support my daily performance. I am very aware that as I joyfully age, my nitric oxide levels go down so natural foods that I consume need to lift me up with every opportunity I get.
There is one particular veggie I’ve added to my diet in the last several years that I want to talk to you today about, red spinach. Not green, but red spinach, sometimes called Amaranth.
