Gummy Candy Could Be Healthier Than Gummy Vitamins

Which is Troubling, As Gummy Bears Aren't Healthy At All

Nutrition can be an endlessly confusing science, full of contradictory information — Does expensive really mean healthier? Is a vegan diet actually good for you? What does moderation even mean, anyway? — but every so often, you run into a decision that seems like a no-brainer. Like, for example, whether it’s better to satisfy your sweets craving with a handful of gummy vitamins or a handful of actual gummy candy. Both are made pretty much entirely of substances you can’t pronounce, but one is actually good for you. Obviously, you go with the vitamins.

The Freshest in the World

By Steve Moren
on October 01, 2015

Scotch, cheese, cast iron cookware and your favorite pair of jeans; there’s no denying that some things just get better with age.  Unfortunately, your vitamins are not among them.  Even under ideal conditions, most supplements degrade over time.  Heat, light, humidity and the oxygen in the air all accelerate this process.

When we go grocery shopping, we select the freshest ingredients available.  We recognize that the freshness of our perishables is a reflection of their quality.  We test our fruits and vegetables for ripeness.  We ask the butchers and fishmongers, “Is it fresh?”  So why don’t we check the freshness of our vitamins?  Is checking the expiration date enough?  If you think about it, nutritional supplements are food, in a different form.  If you’re supplementing with pills, instead of VitaMist, then they probably don’t taste as good as food, but their ultimate purpose is the same.  Supplements provide a concentrated form of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), botanicals and even some macronutrients (carbs, fats, proteins, sodium, and potassium).  They are no different than food, so we should take the same approach with them that we do when we shop for groceries.  Recognize that their freshness is a reflection of their quality, avoid purchasing ‘overripe‘ supplements and always ask, “Is this fresh?”

What is energy?

Energy is a property of matter.  Matter roughly amounts to “stuff” that takes up space, such as atoms, chemical compounds and a whole lot more.  Energy is something that all matter has in some form or another.  Just as every person has a height and weight, all matter has energy.  And just as an individual's height and weight can change, matter’s energy levels can change.  Energy is ultimately caused by the four fundamental forces of nature, electromagnetism, gravity, the strong nuclear force and the weak nuclear force.

There Are Many Types of Energy

Kinetic energy is the energy of action.  Any object in motion has kinetic energy, whether it is a vehicle driving down the highway, or a single molecule vibrating and jostling around.

 Potential energy is “stored energy”.  All matter possesses potential energy in the form of nuclear, gravitational, electromagnetic and chemical energy, at the same time.

Independence from Monsanto

July 01, 2017

Monsanto is giant, and not a gentle one.  It may feel impossible to avoid their reach, the genetically modified Frankenfoods that they pedal, and the toxic business practices which they employ.  If not impossible, you might think that ditching Monsanto for healthier, and more sustainable options might seem like such a daunting task that it’s not even worth the effort.  But fear not!   We have a few steps that will help you avoid Monsanto, or, at the very least, cut out much of the genetically modified food in your diet.
