    What is Goji Berry?

    Goji Berries are a super fruit - for more than 6,000 years, Goji Berries have been used by the Chinese and other cultures to treat a swath of ailments and conditions from promoting liver health to increasing bone strength and fighting off disease. Some say, it also helps to improve vision.

    In recent years the United States has begun to import Goji Berry in an increasing quantity as people realize how healthy these berries really are. They are small, tart, yet sweet berries that are absolutely PACKED with antioxidants. One such antioxidant contained in the Goji Berry has been known to reduce risk of macular degeneration. Extract of Goji has also been known to reduce the risk of cancer cells and lower cholesterol.

    Most Goji Berries available in the United States are dried and resemble small, reddish colored raisins in size and feel. Many online distributors and local supplement stores

    What are the best ways to get healthy?

    Having been in business since 1998, we have noticed a large number of trends that have come and gone in the natural/alternative health circle. We have seen everything from some new exotic fruit that will supposedly cure your woes (Noni, mangosteen, acai,) to electrical devices that can supposedly cure cancer, to diets that run from raw vegan to paleo or high fat to no fat or low carb to no carb. Lots of absurdity peppered with some truth.The most distressing of all is that we constantly see people chasing after and spending good money on what is often nothing more than sexy marketing at the expense of embracing proven/time tested health benefitting concepts and products. Maybe there is something about American culture that results in the masses being distracted by the latest and greatest next miracle fix or maybe it is a universal

    How Else Can I use my Champion Juicer?

    We recently wrote about the benefits of juicing.  We know that a juicer is an investment.  When purchasing a juicer, make sure that you find one that can be used for multiple purposes.  Not only will it make the investment more economical, but it will be another way to get healthy foods into your diet.

    What are the benefits of juicing?

    Juicing is more than just the latest health craze, it’s good for your body and it can be fun experimenting with different fruits and vegetables. But, before you run to the store and grab a fancy stainless juicer, it’s important to understand why you should be juicing in the first place. First and foremost, it allows for faster absorption of essential nutrients into the body because there is no fiber blocking these nutrients. Juicing provides you with a super abundance of critical minerals and vitamins, all in a cup. For example, you’d need to consume pounds of carrots or a dozen apples just to get the same concentration of nutrients as you would get from one cup of juice.

    What is the Best Method of Water Purification?

    Water filters of all types, from simple carafe types, to carbon block, all the way to the highest quality reverse osmosis filters all have limitations

    Filters require openings for the water to pass through. A filter that may capture 98% of lead in the water, may in turn remove 5% of the arsenic present.

    What is the Healthiest Diet?

    There are lots of different approaches to diet. Paleo, Vegan, Raw, Mediterranean, Weston Price, Standard American, Macrobiotic, high fat, low fat, high protein, low protein and dozens of others. In fact in out 17 years of serving the natural health community with quality products, we have witnessed the crazes come and go. Somehow it seems that many of our customers benefit from very different dietary practices. How can this be? Is it possible that there truly isn't a best diet?The answer to that is likely no. There likely is a best diet, but that diet may very well not be the best diet for the entire population. We often ask our customers to explain to us exactly what they are trying to do. In other words, what is their goal or objective? Metabolic rates, current level of fitness, age, access to food, family dynamics (whether the family can get on board), and various other factors can play into whether a diet is going to be ideal for someone long term or if it

    What is the Best Fermented Cod Liver Oil Flavor for Children?

    SONY DSC

    It’s a great choice to give your children Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil from a very young age, beginning usually around 6 months. When a baby is still breast feeding or using a bottle, it is easiest to give them Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil by Green Pasture in the Cinnamon Tingle or the Oslo Orange flavor. The Cinnamon Tingle is a strong cinnamon flavor and can sometimes be considered spicy. The Oslo Orange flavor is not spicy but is not as strong in flavor and doesn’t mask the fishy flavor as well. It comes with a s

    What is the Difference Between Fermented Cod Liver Oil and Regular Cod Liver Oil?

    When we started in business in 1998, there were a number of cod liver oil products on the market that were both high vitamin and high quality. The overwhelming majority of cod liver oil has historically been produced in northern Europe (Norway, Iceland, Denmark, etc) and that tradition continues today. In the early 2000’s many in the natural health field, including us at Renewed Health Supply, became concerned about a pending standardization of cod liver oil. Europe’s equivalent of the FDA had legislated a maximum fluctuation of vitamin from one bottle to the next that went into effect in 2006. Up until 2006 there were still a small number of manufacturers that were adding back in the cod vitamins at the end of the process. As one can imagine, nutrient levels with any fished or farmed product can vary significantly from month to month. Therefore, it became necessary for the cod oil producers in Europe to add back standardized vitamin D to the oils. We also saw a big

    Why Does Renewed Health Supply Have a Blog?

    Renewed Health Supply has been in business since 1998. Ryan Krumroy started the business because he was passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and wanted to share that passion with others.

    Since 1998, Ryan got married and started a family.  Living a healthy lifestyle became more important.  Growing in knowledge of the health community and sharing it with others is what Renewed Health Supply is all about.

    Renewed Health Supply is now run by both Ryan and his wife Tracey.  After some recent discussions, Ryan and Tracey decided that it's time to start sharing the knowledge they have gained over the years - thus the blog.

    Our goal is to start answering questions that our customers ask us every day. We would love to hear what questions you have about our products and the health industry.  Please email us what you want to know!
