1. Bottled Juice

Drinking a processed juice isn’t that different from sipping a soft drink, according to accredited practising dietitian Kate Di Prima. Both are high in kilojoules and sugar, despite the reassuring cartoon fruit character smiling at you from the label. A fresh vegetable juice is a better choice.

    Have you ever wondered how a child physically develops at such a dramatic rate? How a young person can exert so much energy and recover almost instantly? Are you curious about why a child is able to pick up languages so quickly and how they can remember the smallest details? You might imagine that it is just one of the benefits of being young and carefree...ah, youth. There is actually an even more evolutionary reason for this phenomenon. It is indeed about fewer years of life and wear and tear physically, mentally and spiritually...but more than that, it is about the proximity to the embryonic state of being that supports all life...at birth to physical maturity. The real answer lies in a compound that is essential in supporting embryonic development; it is called Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF). While FGF is readily available in the human placenta, its availability to the human body diminishes over time and essentially vanishes as we age. Our body is incapable of producing its own FGF, so it must derive it from the food supply.
