Ben Fuchs, a registered pharmacist, nutritionist and cosmetic chemist, shared alternative health concepts, and offered tips on supplements and healthy changes to one's diet and lifestyle. When our body is in emergency mode, we don't digest our food properly-- that's why it's not good to eat on the run, or when you're distracted. Saying grace before a meal or being grateful activates the parasympathetic nervous system, he said, and this leads to relaxation and a feeling of safety, which helps to maintain the body's overall health and repair mechanisms.
When it comes to low testosterone levels, one of the best things you can do is resistance training at the gym which builds muscle, he outlined. As far as supplements, zinc is important for the male reproductive system, as well as magnesium and B Complex, he added. Interestingly, Fuchs reported that digestive enzymes have pain relieving properties, can bust up scar tissue, and help thin the blood. He named apple cider vinegar as a particularly powerful supplement. It contains acetic acid, and has a variety of benefits including for brain health, appetite suppression, blood sugar, and the digestive system.
