There: There is a possibility that your hair loss could be from your diet (iron deficiency) or it could be from another cause such as a thyroid disorder, hereditary hair loss, over styling, a scalp condition, polycystic ovarian syndrome, or even lupus. Before just assuming it is your diet, you should give your doctor a call. They will be able to examine you and possibly run some simple blood test to rule out non-diet related reasons for hair loss. Many of these are treatable, so having the correct diagnosis is key! Good luck! ...Read more

Some studies show this, even though in many parts of the world it's common to have milk with tea. Http://www. Npr. Org/blogs/thesalt/2012/09/27/161895873/health-benefits-of-tea-milking-it-or-not the same might be true with eating cheese. You still get some, if not as much, benefit. ...Read more

Eat pickled food: Yeast is the normal bacteria found in breads, yogurts, cheese etc that provide natural probiotics.

Nutrition Question: is soy protein oxidized in the liver, thus, it is not used for tissue repair and growth? Are people using it for sports wasting

I'm seeing more products with pea protein as an ingredient. How does it compare nutritionally to other protein sources? Is it a safer choice than soy?

I'm seeing more products with pea protein as an ingredient. How does it compare nutritionally to other protein sources? Is it a safer choice than soy?

Not "safer": Pea protein powder has a certain composition of base amino acids as compared to other protein sources. The important thing is to mix it up and not use a single source chronically for weeks and months. Soy has come under scrutiny for its estrogenic and chemical containing compositions. There is plenty on the internet about this debate. It's not necessarily "less safe" - it's just your goal ...Read more
