Understanding Bone Density and Its Importance

Bone density refers to the amount of mineral matter, such as calcium and phosphorus, present in your bones. It is a measure of the strength and density of your bones, which is crucial for maintaining overall bone health and preventing conditions like osteoporosis and fractures.

Having good bone density is important because it reduces the risk of bone fractures and ensures that your bones can support your body weight and perform daily activities without any issues.

As we age, our bone density naturally decreases, making it essential to take proactive steps to maintain and improve it.

8 Health Benefits of Rooibos Tea vs Green Tea

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Jan 31, 2023

For years I have been drinking green tea based on all the researched health benefits. Recently, however, I learned that a diet high in oxalates can cause a myriad of health problems. Since black and green tea are considered to be high in oxalates, I decided to stop drinking these types of teas and instead increase my intake of rooibos tea. Truth be told, I've had Rooibos tea in my tea cupboard for years, but didn't really investigate how many health benefits it possesses. Perhaps you haven't heard of this herbal tea. Maybe it's time you checked it out too. It is very healthy, delicious and very low in oxalates. Now that's a winning combination! 

Basic Differences Between Rooibos Tea and Green Tea

Rooibos tea and green tea are both known for their numerous health benefits, but they have some key differences that make them unique. One of the main differences between the two teas is that rooibos is low in oxalates, while green tea contains high levels of oxalates. In this blog post, we will explore the health benefits of rooibos tea and green tea and discuss the importance of oxalates in relation to health.

Rooibos Tea

Rooibos, also known as red bush tea, is a well-known herbal tea, consumed for centuries by the Khoisan people of South Africa, has displayed potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, redox modulating, anti-diabetic, anti-cancer, cardiometabolic support and organoprotective potential. This popular herbal tea that originated in South Africa is made from the leaves of the Aspalathus linearis plant and has a unique, slightly sweet and nutty flavor. Interestingly, rooibos tea only grows in the mountainous Cederberg region of South Africa.

One attractive feature of rooibos tea is that it is naturally caffeine-free. This makes it a great alternative to traditional tea or coffee for those who are sensitive to caffeine or for those who want to avoid caffeine for other reasons. Caffeine can cause jitteriness, anxiety, and trouble sleeping, and can also lead to dehydration.

Why The Name "Endocannabinoid System?"

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Wed, Jan 08, 2020

People are slowly coming to understand that while CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) both come from the Cannabis plant, they are quite different compounds.

Namely, unlike THC, CBD will not make you high.

Cannabinoids are compounds that interact with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex, body-wide cell-signaling system designed to help maintain homeostasis, or balance in the body.

You can learn more about the ECS and CBD in my other posts on my blog.

Your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is active even if you don’t use cannabis

This confuses a lot of people. If the ECS has nothing to do with using cannabis, then why was it named after the plant?
