What Are Triglycerides?
When we digest food, our body converts it to energy in the form of calories. We use the energy to function and any surplus calories are stored in fat cells – as triglycerides – for release later by hormones when we might need the extra boost.
For most of us with weight problems, the equation is fairly straight forward. We store too many calories, and we don’t burn them off through exercise or general activity.

There are 227 calories in an avocado (medium size/136 grams), which is slightly higher than other fruits but in this case it is merely a number. The good thing with avocados having a bit more calories than other fruit is that your body digests them slower therefore you feel full longer. If you overlook the number of calories in an avocado you will see that the health benefits out-weigh the increased amount of calories.

Have you ever wondered how we managed before we had such a range of products to put on our bodies and use in our homes? Or how we existed before pre-packaged foods became so available?
Before man invented a barrage of synthetic products containing a vast array of dubious chemicals, we relied on nature to provide us with skin and hair care, clothing and cleaning products. It sounds old fashioned to say, ‘if it was good enough then, it’s good enough now’ but in this area of product use this maxim contains a lot of truth.
Natural plant based products, organically grown seeds and oils were made in to products rich in natural vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, for use on the skin and hair and also as cleaning products for the household.
