Since black pepper dramatically increases the bioavailability of many nutrients, it is suggested to have it freshly ground onto every meal you eat. As a result, pepper is probably one of the most commonly used herb!
It seems that there are more and more terms for different types of farming practices coming on stream. Many of these methods have been around for a long time but maybe never had a specific term or category associated with them and some are regaining popularity.
Short bursts of exercise have more of an impact on our bodies than you might think: a new study shows that just 12 minutes of intense activity is enough to significantly change the biomarkers of metabolic health in people’s blood.
In addition to microbial diversity and distribution, variation in soil aggregates also affects the functions carried out by microorganisms. For example, the composition of free-living bacteria that fix atmospheric nitrogen into soils, differs with the size of soil aggregates.
Biodiversity, carbon sequestration and better food are not add-ons or trade-offs; they are part of the regenerative farming system which enables more profitable farming.
Soil is an incredibly complex and diverse organisation of pores and particles, which influence the organisms that live within. These particles, known as ‘soil aggregates’, consist of mineral and organic materials bound together, and are generally defined by their size and their stability in water.
During the night, your body passes through four to six cycles of sleep. Each cycle is comprised of four stages. Each cycle lasts approximately 90 minutes. Passing through the cycles without disruption is important to cellular rejuvenation, memory consolidation, and restoration of physical and emotional reserves.
Earthworms represent one of the main taxonomic groups of soil biota. Earthworms are present in almost all terrestrial ecosystems at varying biomass, density or species richness levels.
It is complicated, but in agriculture today, farmers are very much dependent on advice either directly or indirectly from their suppliers whose dominant approach to finding solutions to the problems they face.
The kingdom Fungi is one of the most diverse groups of organisms on Earth regulating carbon cycling, plant nutrition and pathology. Soil nematodes are among the most abundant multicellular animals on Earth.
