Enjoy these health benefits of cashew butter.

Cashew butter is a healthy and tasty alternative to peanut butter. Cashews offer fiber and magnesium for digestive and bone health. Chia seeds provide you with fiber, protein, calcium and phosphorus and are low in calories. Chia seeds also offer important micro nutrients including manganese, zinc and magnesium. They promote healthy digestion, healthy weight and heart health.

Most of the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber, which promotes even blood sugar and healthy bowel movements. Coconut oil offers healthy fats that your body easily converts into energy rather than storing as fat. It also promotes healthy thyroid function.

Make your own cashew butter at home utilizing all the healthy ingredients mentioned above with this recipe.

Ingredients:

1 cup raw cashews
3 Tbs chia seeds
1/8 tsp pure stevia powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 Tbs melted coconut oil

Instructions:

1. Put the chia seeds and cashews into a blender and pulse until they are finely ground.

2. Add the stevia powder, salt and oil. Blend until mixed.

3. Store the cashew butter in a glass, air-tight container for up to one week.

A serving size is two tablespoons. This recipe makes eight servings.

Enjoy improved joint health with glucosamine supplements.

As you get ready to start a healthier new year, you may be planning to try some physical fitness activities, such as yoga. This gentle stretching exercise helps you to maintain your flexibility and range of motion. If you are new to yoga, you may have some initial stiffness and resistance in your joints. This is where glucosamine supplements can help you.

Glucosamine is an essential nutrient that helps your body to reduce cells. When you take it as a supplement, it goes right to where your joints ache. It helps to relieve the pain and inflammation that can result from starting a new fitness routine.

Glucosamine supplements also provide you with the regeneration of bone and cartilage. If you have the early stages of arthritis, you might not know it until you first begin practicing yoga. The movement of arthritic joints may cause you to have some aches and pains. Instead of stopping your healthy new habit, taking glucosamine can help to rebuild your bone and cartilage.

Pick up a Glucosamine Product the next time you visit iHerb.

Use these three tips to keep your child healthy during the cold winter months.

Keeping your children safe and healthy throughout the winter season is always a top priority. Here are three things that every parent should remember.

Moisture is key. Lotions, balms and oils are all useful when trying to make sure that your child's skin doesn't chap or dry out. The cold wind of the winter season can wreak havoc on the epidermis. Breaks in the skin can not only be painful, but they can also lead to infection. Protecting the integrity of your child's skin is crucial to their health.

Proper insulation is also imperative. This includes coats, hats, scarves and gloves or mittens. Even extra shirts and long underwear may also be appropriate depending on where you live.

It is also important that you protect your child's immune system during a time of year when sickness is prevalent. Including foods rich in Vitamin C in your child's diet, along with potentially adding a Vitamin C supplement, can help give their immune system the boost it needs.

Make sure that you are taking the proper precautions this winter to help keep your kids healthy and safe. Protecting them against sickness and cold exposure will help make this winter an illness-free one.

Neti pots could provide relief from winter colds and flu.

Neti pots are small, handheld plastic or ceramic pots with a handle and a lid. The angled spout is designed so that you can pour a heated distilled water and saline solution into your nostril. By tilting your head back at a slight angle, the water flows through one nostril and out the other.

This movement of water and salt ions helps to relieve the symptoms of sinusitis, such as runny nose, nasal congestion and cough. You may find that you have less congestion after using a neti pot several times per day.

Neti pots can also help to flush allergens out of your nose. Particles of pollen, dust, pet dander and other allergens can get caught in your nasal mucus. The irrigation provided by the neti pot helps to flush the allergens and the mucus out of your nose.

It also loosens hardened mucus and makes it easier to blow out when you blow your nose. Getting the allergens out of your body may also help to lessen your sneezing, sniffling and itching.

Be sure to check out the selection of Neti Pots available at iHerb.
