There's no magic bullet when it comes to health and wellness. It takes effort. It can be especially difficult for someone who is just coming to the realization that diet really does have consequences. Cravings can get in the way when we're making progress too. The key for many is routine. It takes time and determination, but once you're over the hump, it's all downhill. Once you begin to experience results, it gets much easier.
Ketogenic diets aren't new. Scientists were experimenting with low carb remedies to neurological disorders like epilepsy back in the 1920's. John's Hopkins Medical Center, for example, has nearly 100 years of experience treating pediatric epilepsy patients with low carb, high fat diets. Ketogenic diets have received quite a lot of focus from the scientific community because they've shown so much promise. Modern culture has strayed too far down the path of convenient high carb, over processed, sugar laden diets. It's evidenced by the rising number of Americans suffering from heart disease, obesity, cognitive disorders, diabetes, and chronic autoimmune diseases. Ketogenic diets have become a prominent therapy for all of these maladies and many more. There are even studies showing improvement in cancer patients. It seems the body tends to function better burning high quality, healthy fats for fuel instead of sugar. If you've considered giving keto a try, we'd recommend visiting with your family doctor or naturopath to see if it makes sense for you. Also, it pays to learn as much as possible. Visit our Discover Blog for a ton of useful information.

Product Feature | What Is Braunschweiger?
You may have heard of it or even tried it, but what is Braunschweiger? It has a very German sounding name and for good reason. The name comes from the German city of Braunschweig (Brunswick). Braunschweiger is an organ meat sausage made primarily from liver. US Wellness Braunschweiger is made from a 60/40 mix of grass-fed ground beef and beef liver. It's similar in consistency to our Liverwurst sausage but has a slightly different flavor profile. Both are extremely tasty and loaded with nutrients! Read more on our Discover Blog.
