Fast, degradable, and climate-neutral – algae as a new bioplastic?

Heterotrophic bacteria such as Cupriavidus necator can already produce PHB bioplastic. These bacteria's energy source is the sugar obtained from crops. Cyanobacteria has a significant advantage in PHB production. To conclude, microalgae can fix sunlight and extract energy from it. As a result, PHB production is CO2-neutral. Indeed, it offers ethical and ecological advantages over using heterotrophic bacteria. PHB production by cyanobacteria is currently still in primary research mode. It could be years before it is ready for industrial utilisation. Last but not least, there is also the question of price. PHB production by heterotrophic bacteria is currently more cost-effective.

Regulate testosterone levels in a natural way

Sesame seeds are rich in phytochemicals and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Plant sterols ensure that the cholesterol level can be lowered naturally. Sesame seeds contain haematopoietic iron, bone-strengthening calcium, and selenium, a trace element that strengthens the immune system. Niacin is essential for regenerating skin, muscles, nerves, and DNA. Tocopherol (vitamin E) also protects against free radicals. Sesame is an essential source of protein, especially for vegetarians and vegans.

Propolis – The Sun Medicine

The natural product propolis is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory and promotes wound healing. Honey bees make propolis to seal and clean their hive. They use resin from trees and shrubs, along with wax and saliva. The "building material" also contains vitamins, minerals, and protein building blocks. The composition changes based on where the hive is and what plants are around. The season also plays an important role. The propolis colours vary, making it difficult to prove its effectiveness. The antimicrobial effect is beneficial for bee colonies. Inside a beehive, lots of nutrients lead to higher humidity and temperature. This lets viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites grow fast. The corresponding growth-inhibiting effect on these organisms has confirmed for propolis.

Keep your belt tight enough

When sitting, a tight belt, in particular, puts pressure on the stomach. This can result in circulatory and even digestive problems. Furthermore, it can unpleasantly impact the quality of life. For example, the digestive process is delayed. Skirts or trousers can constrict the abdominal area. This leads to flatulence, stomach pressure and even stomach pain. In the worst case, clothing that is too tight can even restrict the sphincter muscle of the stomach. Moreover, it allows stomach acid to leak into the oesophagus. It results in gastro-oesophageal reflux. This is characterised by a burning sensation and itching in the chest and throat.
