How To Cook With CBD

use these tips to incorporate CBD into your daily life:

CBD has been taking the medical and wellness communities by storm, and that has resulted in a rapid influx of commercially-made products – from vitamins, to gummies, ingestible oils, and even cosmetics, CBD has arrived on the commercial market and it’s here to stay.

More people are choosing to include CBD products in their daily routines as supplements, but what if you could incorporate it into something you do every day – by using it in your meals? While it does take longer to feel the effects of CBD when it’s eaten, the effects are known to last longer. The ingredients in edibles are released slowly into the system as it is digested, and remain steady over the course of digestion.

CBD oil is most often used in edibles. These oils are usually Full Spectrum, which means they contain all the beneficial compounds of the industrial hemp plant, including trace (legal) amounts of THC or Broad Spectrum, which contains all the beneficial compounds except THC. CBD is one of the many naturally-occurring chemical compounds found in the flowers and leaves of cannabis plants.

Unlike THC (the psychoactive element of cannabis,) CBD cannot get you high. It does, however, have proven anti-inflammatory, pain-fighting, and anxiety-reducing properties.

When small doses are taken daily, a slow, natural, and steady return to hormonal balance and overall well-being can occur. Including CBD in a ritual you complete at one to three times a day is a great way to get the dosage you need – without interrupting your daily routines.

How To Cook With CBD

The first thing you have to remember when cooking with CBD is that you shouldn’t actually “cook” it in the traditional sense. CBD has been shown to lose its efficacy when it’s heated. Therefore, it is not recommended as a cooking oil – you should not use it while sauteing, baking, boiling, or frying anything that requires it to be heated over 350 degrees Fahrenheit. CBD will begin to break down and evaporate anywhere from 320-350 degrees, so while you can heat it somewhat, it is not recommended. CBD oil is commonly described as an “earthy” tasting olive oil that gets more bitter when heated – so be careful with how much you use and how much you heat it.

It’s best used as a finishing oil or in dishes that don’t require heating to be prepared – such as smoothies, pestos, and salad dressings.

Cannabinoids bind well to fat and oil-based ingredients - so use it with some sort of grease or fat. This way, you can take full advantage of the benefits in your CBD oil.

Less Is More

Again, CBD is not psychoactive and has few, if any, negative side effects. Even so, it is important to start with smaller doses to see how you respond – and consult with your physician to make sure it will not interact with any medications you are taking.

Because CBD is a supplement and not a heavily standardized medication, some trial and error is necessary – your experience will be different from anyone else’s. 

Thankfully, CBD is a forgiving compound. Just remember that less is more, especially if you are new to supplementing with CBD.

How Vitamin C May Reverse Heart Disease

How Vitamin C May Reverse Heart Disease

Orthopedics And Wellness: How Vitamin C Is Thought To Reverse Heart Disease

I must first give credit to Dr. Linus Pauling, the first major supporter of vitamin C as an everyday health enhancer. Dr. Pauling received the Nobel Prize in Science twice. This discussion is about the power of vitamin C in treating plaquing of the arteries, or clogged arteries.

Clogged arteries are thought to lead to heart attacks and heart disease. “Atherosclerosis” is the technical name for the plaquing or clogging of arteries. Arteries are the blood vessels that provide oxygen and nutrition to all of your cells, including the cells of your heart. When your heart does not get enough oxygen and nutrition, or fuel, the muscles get very tired or sometimes die. This is a heart attack, or heart disease.

Plaque deposits line the walls of damaged arteries. A normal, healthy artery is too strong and the walls are too smooth for a deposit to form. Your body is remarkable and forms these deposits as a way to treat a broken or damaged wall in an artery. Unless the crack is fixed, or plugged with a plaque deposit, blood can break through the arterial wall completely and this would be total disaster. So, the body repairs the arterial walls with a sort of mortar, or plaque.

Think of atherosclerosis as a ‘patch’ in the wall. Vitamin C is a vital building block for a better way to repair the cracks in the wall.

A lot of material in the body is made of collagen, or fiber. Bones, ligaments, tendons and arterial walls all have collagen. Collagen requires a method of manufacturing called ‘cross-linking’. This is the connection between the fiber cells and strands that makes the material strong. Vitamin C is a critical part of cross-linking in collagen. Therefore, to have good tissue, including arterial walls, you have to have adequate amounts of vitamin C. With the ability to form proper cross-links, the artery walls can self-repair back to a normal configuration without the sloppy deposit type of repair.

Your diet affects your health at every level – from the inside out. Find out how your diet directly affects your skin health by reading this helpful blog!

What Causes Heart Disease

and how Vitamin C can help

Without vitamin C, plaques and deposits are the only way the body has to repair damaged arterial walls. More and more plaques are formed as more and more tears and cracks appear due to the altered flow of blood. This is a cycle of unhealthy events that eventually can lead to a heart attack. Once a thick enough plaque forms, the body will then block that artery with a blood clot, knowing it is too damaged to use for blood flow. The body’s system is trying to help, but the cure will eventually hurt you!

In 1954 it was shown that 500mg of vitamin C three times a day made great improvements in the arterial blockages of patients with heart trouble.

Vitamin C is also seen as an anti-oxidant. Some people feel that the pharmaceutical industry does not wish for vitamin C to be known as a good treatment for heart disease. 

However, as a vital part of collagen and a good anti-oxidant, Vitamin C should be part of any heart-healthy regimen.

How To Get Enough Vitamin C

and why you should consider a multivitamin

The usual recommendation is to get all of your vitamins and minerals from your diet. If you are unable to eat enough fruits and vegetables to get the vitamin C, the following regimen is recommended. Vitamin C: 6 grams, per day, is needed for heart disease (as per Dr. Pauling). If you take vitamin C with minerals like magnesium and calcium, less may be taken. One of the side effects of too much Vitamin C is diarrhea. Taking Vitamin C in divided doses can help with that. 

Minerals to think about taking with Vitamin C include zinc and magnesium, as they aid in Vitamin C absorption. This is why I designed my multivitamin with both zinc and magnesium alongside Vitamin C – as they work better together.

Multivitamins Before Surgery

Why You Should Consider A Multivitamin Before Surgery

Why You need a daily multivitamin

before getting surgery

When you are about to undergo surgery, you are usually given a pre-operation checklist for certain things to do or avoid as you prepare for your procedure. This can include things like a round of preemptive antibiotics, not eating certain foods or fasting 12-24 hours before your surgery, etc.

It’s important to take your surgeon’s advice while you’re preparing for your surgery. Not only are surgeons skilled enough to understand the science behind these procedures, they are also experts in the science behind healing. Nutrition is a key factor in repairing tissues affected by surgery, and starting a supplement regimen is a great way to make sure your body is optimized and ready to begin the healing process.

healing after surgery

and getting back to normal

The healing process after your surgery centers on the building of collagen – which is the main component in many tissues, such as your skin, tendons, muscles, ligaments, cartilage, blood vessels, bone, and more. Basically, any tissue that can be affected by surgery – “surgically traumatized tissue” – needs collagen to rebuild. The production of collagen, and the overall healing process, happens in three stages after surgery:

  • Inflammatory phase (up to 5 days): Right after surgery, the body forms a blood clot to stop bleeding. Infection-fighting cells and debris-cleaning cells are sent to the surgical site. Redness, swelling, and inflammation ensues.
  • Proliferative phase (2 days – 3 weeks): Fibroblasts, specialized collagen-forming cells, start building tissue at the surgical site.
  • Remodeling phase (3 weeks – beyond): Over time, the body slowly replaces the collagen that was initially formed at the surgical site with stronger collagen – to strengthen the tissue at the surgical site and promote better function over time.

Without proper nutrition, this healing process can take longer and may even encounter complications. A balanced diet, including essential vitamins and minerals, is extremely important for your healing experience to go smoothly. This is why many surgeons will recommend a multivitamin or specialized supplement regimen before and after surgery.

The right amount and combination of supplements can greatly impact your surgical recovery in a positive way. But you shouldn’t start a supplement regimen without guidance.

Inform (And ask!) Your doctor

about supplements

While most supplements should be safe and beneficial to take as you’re preparing for surgery, there are some supplements that could actually harm your recovery process. For example, certain herbal supplements and over-the-counter drugs can reduce your body’s ability to clot blood – an essential component of a smooth recovery. Other supplements can interact negatively with other medications your surgeon may recommend for your healing process.

Your doctor would be more than happy to recommend certain vitamins and minerals to promote healing, and can tell you which supplements to avoid or discontinue while leading up to surgery. You should bring up supplements during your pre-op consultation to make sure there are no delays, as it can take a week or more for any medications to fully leave your system.

For tips on post-surgery recovery, read our blog about why active physical therapy is often a better choice for recovery than bed rest: Recovery And Rehabilitation.

Surgeon-Designed Multivitamin

for your peace of mind

If your doctor prescribes many different vitamins and minerals, your pre- and post-op supplement routine can get expensive, and complicated, very quickly. It’s far easier to carefully choose an inclusive multivitamin and have your doctor confirm that none of the ingredients would interfere with your procedure.

In her years of practice, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Meredith Warner found herself prescribing many different supplements and multivitamins to help her patients prepare for surgery. She specializes in surgical procedures impacting the foot – which contains nearly one-fourth of all bones in the human body. The foot is a complex, flexible structure that contains bones, joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments… all working together to enable movement and balance.

For procedures as high-stakes as these, she believes that proper preparation is essential for ideal outcomes for her patients. This is why she created a multi to support the connective tissue in your body. It contains highly fortified ingredients ideal for pre- and post-surgery recovery, including Calcium Citrate, Magnesium Oxide, Full Spectrum Hemp Powder, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid),Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), Zinc Gluconate, and more.

All About Flavonoids

All About Flavonoids

Flavonoids: What Are They,

+ 7 surprising benefits

Flavonoids are naturally-occurring phytonutrients in plant pigments. These bioactive compounds are found in various vegetables, fruits, spices, and nuts, and they provide a wealth of health benefits when consumed.

Stock your fridge with vibrantly colored fruits and vegetables such as beets, carrots, lemons, and raspberries. These vibrant foods are rich with flavonoids and nutrients.

Why are flavonoids a key ingredient to living well?

1. Flavonoids protect against free radicals.

The antioxidant properties of flavonoids help to ward off the harmful effects of free radicals, which have been linked to the development of various chronic diseases.

2. Flavonoids help to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.

In addition to its antioxidant capabilities, flavonoids have anti-inflammatory characteristics that are effective in lowering cholesterol levels, decreasing the risk of ischemic heart disease, and preventing blood clots.

3. Flavonoids have been shown to decrease the risk of neurodegenerative disease.

A flavonoid-rich diet has been linked to a lessened risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.

4. Flavonoids can help improve vascular function for those with diabetes.

Flavonoids are found in herbs and spices, including garlic, rosemary, and oregano. Studies have shown that the consumption of flavonoids has been effective at improving the function of the vascular system in those with type-2 diabetes.

5. Flavonoids may aid in cancer prevention

There are limited studies performed on human subjects, but animal studies link flavonoids with inhibiting the development of cancerous cells in the colon and liver. 

Research also points to flavonoids preventing gastric and pancreatic cancers among a variety of other types.

6. Flavonoids can improve bone health

Flavonoids may be linked to improved bone formation and limited bone resorption. This not only strengthens the bones but also helps to prevent the development of conditions such as osteoporosis.

7. Flavonoids may help to manage weight

While there is not significant regarding the connection of flavonoids to weight management, a study from The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that women with higher flavonoid consumption exhibited lower levels of body fat than those without a flavonoid-rich diet.

 

Due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties alone, flavonoids are important factors of a healthy lifestyle. Make sure to incorporate foods that are rich in flavonoids into your diet to gain some of these healthy benefits!

MCT Coconut Oil VS Olive Oil

MCT Coconut Oil Vs. Olive Oil

MCT Coconut Oil

vs. Olive Oil

I am a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who is passionate about helping you live well mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Recently, I have been using more MCT oil in the kitchen. I have been intrigued by the potential health benefits of the medium chain triglycerides. I have long loved olive oils and use them most of the time, but was curious to see how they compared to MCT coconut oil. 

Medium chain triglycerides (MCT) are medium length chains of fats. There also exist long chain fats and short chain fats. Long chain fats are saturated fats and remain solid at room temperature.   

50% of fat in coconut oil is medium chain. Usually, coconut oil remains solid at room temperature, so the other half of coconut oil is comprised of long-chain fats. MCT coconut oil is liquid at room temperature, and is separated from these long-chain fats for its beneficial uses.   

health benefits of mct

MCT is thought to increase the amounts of leptin and peptide YY. These proteins naturally promote a feeling of fullness and help you feel satiated – which means that you may consume less calories throughout your day. MCTs have also been found to have about 10% fewer calories than long chain fats.   

MCTs have many potential benefits for optimizing your daily health:  

  • MCTs can convert to ketones in the body. This makes them ideal for a ketogenic diet, since they help individuals maintain ketosis. Ketones can be used by the brain for energy and because of this, MCTs have been shown to help reduce symptoms for those with Alzheimer’s.

  • One study also showed some benefit of MCTs for those with autism also on a gluten-free diet. In addition, MCTs support the correct gut biome; this too helps to maintain overall health and promote wellness.
     
  • MCTs have been shown in studies to increase production of HDL (good) cholesterol and decrease production of LDL (bad) cholesterol.

  • MCT was also able to reduce the amount of inflammatory proteins (CRP) in serum. The medium chains fats in MCTs bypass the bile duct system and are ideal for those with issues in the biliary system. However, over time too many MCTs will cause a fatty liver, as they are high in calories.  

HOW MCTS COMPARE

to Olive Oil

Olive oil is a natural substance extracted from olives. MCTs are natural in a way – they are partitioned from coconut oil using scientific techniques. 

The beauty of olive oil is that it is primarily a monounsaturated fat; it is oleic acid. This is just about ¾ of the total content of the oil. Oleic acid is naturally anti-inflammatory and has been found to alter epigenetics (or gene formations) associated with cancer – which means that oleic acid may prevent cancer. Olive oil is also an anti-oxidant and can scavenge free radicals.   

Olive oil is a great choice for those struggling with the symptoms of aging:

Olive oil prevents and treats constipation. This is one of the unspoken problems with aging. A teaspoon of olive oil a day has been shown to be an effective treatment for this issue.  

Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids are to be the main source of fat in an anti-aging diet. Since olive oil contains monosaturated fats, it is a beneficial part of a healthy, anti-aging diet.

Choosing the right multivitamin or supplement regimen isn’t as easy as picking up a bottle or two off the shelf - blending essential nutrients into a single dose is a complicated process.

WHICH SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?

Olive Oil or MCT Coconut Oil

There is nothing inherently wrong with fat; and plant-based fats are found to be especially beneficial. Olive oil is more protective from heart disease than a low-fat diet. Healthy fats support nerves and the brain and are actually important and essential parts of a balanced diet. 
 

I would advise that, while they are not inherently dangerous, you avoid consuming many fats that stay solid at room temperature.  Imagine what that is doing in your smaller arteries.    

We incorporate MCT coconut oil into our pain-fighting Hemp oil tincture. It is easily digestible and can be taken easily with just a few drops under your tongue or in your morning coffee. Choose Well Theory for resources on full body betterment and products to bolster your wellness so that you can live to your fullest potential.

Eat fresh, grate into muffins, or steep in hot water to make a spicy, refreshing tea infused with all of this root’s healthy benefits.

6. Citrus

Citrus fruits may be one of the most well-known and researched for ingredients that are immunity boosting. Grapefruit, lemons, limes, and oranges are high in vitamin C which increases white blood cell production. Vitamin C also provides protection of your immune cells as they fight infections. Enjoy fresh-squeezed juice or peeled segments to get a healthy dose of vitamin C into your day.
