When most people think about world hunger and poverty, they often think of Vitamin A deficiency impacting vision or distended abdomens from protein deficiency in developing countries. Oddly, a much bigger problem affects people across the globe: iron deficiency. Low iron can lead to weakness, impaired cognitive ability, increased risk of illness, and even death - and as many as 50% of the population are at risk.

To solve this problem, please meet, Gavin Armstrong, the purpose-driven entrepreneur behind the Lucky Iron Fish. As the name suggests, this solution is quite literally “luck fish” made of iron and used in cooking to add iron into your diet. It’s elegantly simple, scientifically proven, and the compliance rate is off the charts.

Every iron fish can provide an entire family with up to 75% of their daily iron intake for up to 5 years. All you have to do is cook with it!

Gavin is a PhD Candidate in biomedical science at the University of Guelph [golf] and is a Fulbright Scholar. He has received the William J. Clinton Hunger Leadership Award and the Michaëlle Jean Humanitarian Award. He has also received the Mayor’s Award of Excellence, has been named one of the Top 40 under 40 in the Guelph community, and has been named a fellow emeritus of both the Hunger Solutions Institute and the Kirchner Food Fellowship.

What You'll Learn:

  • Why iron deficiency can cause up to 20% loss of work ability
  • How low iron makes you more susceptible to malaria and HIV
  • 3.5 billion people have deficiency
  • The complexity of iron supplementation
  • Since 2000, deficiency is up 10% globally

Yoga Design Lab 

The innovative yoga brand Yoga Design Lab has been shaking up the industry with uber colorful yoga mats described by Refinery29 and Fitness Magazine as 'stunning works of art’. Designed in Bali by a Canadian surfer/yogi named Chad, who sold all his stuff and moved there to launch the idea in 2014. The young brand produces visually stunning, fashion-forward, eco-friendly yoga products designed to inspire.

"I was seated in the back of a packed yoga class while on vacation in Ubud, Bali. Looking around, all I saw was a sea of unoriginal, massed produced, solid colored mats. My thinking was, there must be a way of creating a highly functional product that was also aesthetically beautiful. So the journey began. Long story short, I sold my stuff, packed up a couple bags and moved to Bali with the goal of creating a stunning line of yoga products that inspire more people to get excited about yoga.” - Chad, YDL Founder

Blending fashion-forward design elements with innovative functionality and bio-renewable consciousness is key to the Yoga Design Lab approach. From insulated stainless steel water bottles, to yoga mats comprised of biodegradable natural tree rubber, to the water based inks used in the printed designs, we can all make a difference with the products we buy.

For some strange reason, many yoga students overlook the importance of diet on their yoga practice—and this is a huge mistake. "You are what you eat," is a phrase everyone has heard, but in yoga, it's even more true than in other activities. Certain foods digest quickly, nourish your soft tissues, and simply make practice easier. Other foods fry your nervous system, slow digestion, and add unnecessary roadblocks to your practice. 

In this Show, You'll learn:

  • Why micronutrients are so important
  • Which foods nourish your body's connective tissues
  • Natural plant foods that turn off inflammation
  • Nervous system balancing foods to eat and avoid

 

Nutritional Tip of the Week:

trade in your refined white sugar for coconut palm sugar!
