Purslane, Sugary Drinks, TV Time, and Our Liver

Here are some important facts you need to know about Purslane, Sugary Drinks, TV Time, and Our Liver


Purslane is a weed that is loaded with omega-3s, vitamin A, iron, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and antioxidants. They give nutrient boosts when added to sandwiches and salads or used as a topping for tacos.

Sugary Drinks

They are a big driver of childhood obesity which can lead to the development of other health issues like high blood pressure, sleep apnea, type-2 diabetes, and more.

TV Time

Spending four or more hours a day in front of a television was associated with a 35 percent higher risk of blood clots compared with less than two and a half hours. This is independent of factors such as age, sex, BMI, and physical activity. Being immobile for long periods impairs circulation and can cause blood to pool.

Our Liver

Our liver works to remove waste products and toxins from our body, but as we get exposed to increasingly more toxins, the liver struggles to remove them all and can start storing them in our body fat. We may notice the result in our energy levels, lack of youthful appearance, etc.
