Sisters who sip
Since 1999 our ten member group has met monthly helping each other learn about wine; from the nuances of bouquet, and the tradition of vintage, to the fusion of food and wine. At our gatherings we travel ‘via the vine’—sampling and savoring wines from around the world.

Welcome to Divas Uncorked!
We’ve expanded our gatherings to include special wine centered activities, along the way fostering relationships with vintners, sommeliers, and wine educators.
And, we’ve taken our private education public– since 2001 hosting Vintner Dinners and our annual “Wine, Women and …” Conferences. And this year we launched the first Martha’s Vineyard Wine and Food Festival. We’ve hit the road to visit California vineyards in Napa, Sonoma and most recently South Africa.
We are happy to announce that our adventures have led us to create and blend our own private label with the Mendocino Wine Company, Divas Uncorked Chardonnay!
Latest Updates From Our Blog
We can find many curious facts about the history of wine. As a companion in the history of man, wine has a good number of anecdotes and curiosities. Some minted during the many centuries that make wine part of our life. And it is that there is no doubt that there is not an older drink or more intimately related to each of our pages of life as Humanity.
Precisely for this reason, choosing only ten curiosities about the history of wine is difficult. A minimal selection if we take into account that, 6,000 years before Christ, there were already nomadic peoples in the Middle East making wine from wild grapes.
A fact that only accounts for how far we have to go back to compile these small events that do nothing more than put their grain of sand in the construction of the myth and history of wine.
- There Are Three Gods Of Wine
Although the most famous of all is the Roman Bacchus, the truth is that he is not the only deity related to wine. What’s more, this god so immortalized in ancient art is nothing more than the Empire’s adaptation of the Greek god of wine Dionysus. However, even before this deity with two names already issued the first god of wine.
To know it, we would have to go back to nothing less than the year 2700 BC and a place as unique as Sumeria, a region in the south of Ancient Mesopotamia. In this territory, a goddess related to wine was already honored: Gestín. A name whose translation means “mother strain.” Curiously, and despite being the only recognized divinity, two other gods of the Mesopotamian imagination support the importance of wine in their civilization: Pa-gestín-dug, whose meaning is “good strain”; and Nin-kasi, a name that can be translated as “the lady with intoxicating fruit.”
- The Oldest Warehouse In The World Is In Armenia
It dates back to no less than 4100 BC and is one of the great archaeological discoveries related to the history of wine. Its facilities are 1000 years ahead of the oldest until the moment in which, in the middle of the Cold War, it was discovered by chance by Soviet soldiers who were looking for a defense point in the cave.
- The Disputed Origin Of The Toast
Although for us it is a normal act of celebration, it is still unknown today exactly how the toast was born. For some, it has its origins in Ancient Rome since these people considered that wine should be enjoyed with the five senses, hearing included. For others, the root of the toast is in Ancient Greece and the gesture itself was a matter of caution: toasting involved showing the guest at our table that the glass was not poisoned. Something that aroused many suspicions when it was toasted with water.
But despite these distant origins, many defend the theory that the toast as we know it today dates back to 16th century Germany. What’s more, some historians even attest to the exact moment in which the toast was born: in the celebration of the conquest of Rome by the troops of Charles V.
- The Vineyards Were Close To Monasteries And Cathedrals
The turbulent history of Europe during the Middle Ages, marked by multiple wars throughout the centuries, permanently endangered the production of wine. For this reason, the monks and religious used to be in charge of safeguarding the vines and their fruits. A gesture that not only allowed them to have a self-consumption of wine but also a product with which the religious orders traded as part of their subsistence economy.
- Why Was Wine So Important In The Middle Ages?
What has been one of the darkest times in history is also due to the absolute lack of hygienic conditions. A few centuries in which Humanity was exposed and diminished by the infinity of diseases that, among other carriers, were transmitted through water. Thanks to the wine fermentation process, it was possible to quench thirst without fear of falling ill.
- What Was The First Quality Wine Made?
Arnaud de Pontac, president of the Bordeaux parliament and owner of a vineyard, is credited with having started creating quality wines in response to the growing demand of the French bourgeoisie of the time. Thus, in 1660 he began to apply techniques that are still valid today, such as the selection of grapes or the wine aging process, to turn his wines into the best and most expensive on the market at the time.
- The Largest Warehouse In The World Is In Moldova
And no, it does not enjoy this title casually but it is part of the Guinness Book of Records. Its dimensions leave no one indifferent: 250 kilometers of underground tunnels, of which only 50 are used, in which a whopping two million bottles of wine rest. It was founded in 1969 taking advantage of an old underground route that had been excavated in previous centuries.
- The Phrase “They Don’t Give It To You With Cheese” Comes From The World Of Wine
Surely you have ever used it and, beyond recognizing its meaning, you have not stopped to think about its origin. It is interesting to discover that this expression was born in the world of wine. And the thing is that cheese was the trick used by many old winemakers to make their wines pass through soft and silky broths. For this reason, before buying a certain wine it was offered to taste it together with a cheese tasting plate that completely clouded the palate and avoided an objective value judgment.
- The Wine Has No Color
A statement that can be scandalous and yet is absolutely true! Practically all wines are colorless in origin, although their color is the result of the maceration of the grape must with the pulp, skins, and seeds. It will be these ingredients that will really determine the final colors and aromas of a wine.
- The Sea Is A Fantastic Wine Cellar
The wine bottles found in the shipwrecked wrecks account for this. A constant temperature and pressure, the absence of light, and salinity have proven to be ideal factors for the aging of the wine. Something that has promoted the existence of underwater wineries in different parts of our geography.
The high prices of some of these wines mean that they are often counterfeited to scam the unwary
Wine is one of the oldest alcoholic beverages of humanity, in fact, there is archaeological evidence of the existence of this fermented around 7000 BC in an area between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. At present we can find hundreds of varieties on the market with prices ranging from the most humble to tens of thousands of euros. Unfortunately, the high value of some causes them to be the constant victims of forgeries and hoaxes.
One of the most classic scams is to fill the bottle of a good broth with a low-quality one, what has always been called a carafe. Luckily, more and more research is being done so that we are not given a hoax. Now, a new system of the University of the Basque Country (UPV) wants to detect oenological fraud without the need to uncork the bottle.
The quality of a wine is determined by its organoleptic characteristics: smell, color, and flavor. For this reason, characterizing a product about its aromatic composition is the same as ensuring its cleanliness, way of preparation and packaging, and even avoiding fraud and counterfeits. The truth is that this liquid is one of the most complex alcoholic beverages, with more than 1,000 identified volatile components. This makes detection of fraud by sensory analysis difficult and chemical analysis complex. However, there are several promising analytical approaches.
This liquid is one of the most complex alcoholic beverages, with more than 1,000 volatile components identified
The space in the neck of a bottle of this elixir is made up of the gaseous substances that accumulate between the cork and the wine and constitute a chemical balance until it is opened. The information provided by the components present in that space may be characteristic of the variety, vintage, production method, or designation of origin of the broth. The problem is in reaching that space of the container that still has the cork, without destroying it (to avoid economic losses).
The Central Analysis Service of Álava (SCAA-SGIker) of the UPV has designed a simple sampling model, which allows the extraction of wine vapors without the need to remove the cork from the bottles. This tool, together with the measurement technique called Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS), allows to determine the volatile compounds present in the headspace of the bottles and to carry out an approach to the detection of fraud in the oenological world.
The key to analyzing the quality of the wine is in the gaseous substances that accumulate between the cork and the wine
The designed test is capable of extracting a small portion of the gas from the said space of the bottles without uncorking them. It is a device that has a syringe attached to it that imperceptibly perforates the cork, extracts the gas, and allows sealing once removed.
Analytics in triplicate
The analysis of the study has been carried out in triplicate for each of the selected wine bottles, thus guaranteeing the reproducibility of the results. 22 wines were selected (11 Crianza and 11 Young). In total, 20 compounds from these wines were identified, many of which are the same in both aged and young wines. The identified compounds are secondary flavors, mostly esters, ketones, acids, or higher alcohols.
To classify the wines and achieve the main objective of the research, it was necessary to find indicators that distinguish the different types of wines. Thus, depending on the aromatic compounds present in the neck space, the wines could be classified and possible fraud in their vinification and production could be detected.
As a result of the study, it can be observed that young people have a similar chromatographic profile, detecting in all of them two compounds typical of the vinification of young wines (3-Hydroxy-2-Butanone and γ-Butyrolactone). In the case of aging, more efficient yeasts are used and, possibly, the degradation route is different, which is why aged wines do not present these aromas.
The UPV institution defines this new device as “certainly effective in extracting and identifying highly volatile compounds or those with active aromatic activity”, which makes it possible to distinguish between young and aged wines without having to open the bottles. So we can know, without having to uncork the broth, that what we buy is what is labeled, without being surprised, that it could be a millionaire, by drinking a glass.
Kratom tea is gaining popularity as a popular beverage for those looking for different ways to invigorate or relax. Kratom or Mitragyna speciosa is a tree native to the lands of Southeast Asia harvested in different stages. What are the Kratom tea effects that make such an in-demand drink?
What is Kratom tea?
Preparing Kratom tea is simple and doesn’t require any complicated tools. You can make your beverage by steeping Kratom powder in warm or pre-boiled water to release all the essential alkaloids. Some “activate” the alkaloids by soaking the powder in a bit of lemon juice while the water is cooling down.
Temperature plays a crucial role in brewing tea. Some consumers get a satisfying effect when they steep the tea gently in warm water between 5-20 minutes. Others brew Kratom in a very gentle simmer in the same time range for a more robust flavor.
What are the Kratom tea effects commonly experienced?
What you get from Kratom tea will vary depending on the type of strain you’re using, as well as how strong you’re making it. Some report that Kratom tea can be:
Stimulating and invigorating
Mile preparations of Kratom tea release its stimulating effects. Some who shared their experience with Kratom at low doses say that they have this energy level that makes them push through the day. The stimulating effects didn’t come with the uncomfortable jitters and anxiousness that you commonly get from stimulants.
Heightened focus and concentration
There’s a level of consciousness that keeps you alert without being hyper about the things going around your environment. The cerebral effect gives you a clear mind that you can feel for a few hours.
Kratom reactions are dose-dependent, and most users feel a sense of deep relaxation when they take Kratom at a moderate or high dose. However, red vein strains are the most relaxing Kratom because they carry a greater quantity of alkaloids compared to white and green veins.
In some cases, the relaxation can be deep enough to promote sleepiness. Those who want to get a good sleep or just wash away the day’s stress and start the next morning anew can take Kratom tea before bedtime.
Kratom tea can also give a body buzz that can help relax muscle tightness. This is due to the presence of 7-hydroxymitragynine, a potent alkaloid that binds and partially activates human µ-opioid receptors. In animal studies, the alkaloid was seen to exhibit an analgesic effect.
You can only appreciate Kratom tea effects only from high-quality Kratom. The source of your Kratom powder or loose leaf bears weight on the number of alkaloids present in the leaves. Processing, storing, and transporting can have a significant impact on the efficacy of the product.
We mentioned earlier that the effects are also dose-dependent. Kratom tea can be beneficial if taken in the right amount. When taken too much or abused, you’ll feel some adverse effects such as:
Start low before gradually increasing the amount that you take for the day. Give your body some time to absorb the tea before deciding to take more. Kratom tea effects usually begin manifesting within 5-15 minutes after intake. Once you feel the buzz kicking in, wait a while, and get familiar with how your body reacts. This way, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the tea and lessen the risk of overloading your system.
Different types of Kratom are available. You can choose from White, Green, and Red strains sourced from other countries in Asia.
There are different types of Kratom available in the market. You have several options in terms of strain, variety, and form. What are they, and which one will be most beneficial for what you have in mind? Let’s take a look at them one by one.
Different types of Kratom Strains
There are three major strains of Kratom: white, green, and red. You’ll often see them referred to as “veins” pertaining to the network of streaks found underneath the leaves.
Appearance: Growers harvest White Vein Kratom while they are still young, and the veins are still white. They undergo the curing process indoors under environmental control. These are kept in total darkness as much as possible throughout the curing process. This maintains the pale color of the veins until it’s ready for processing.
Features: the pungency of flavor can be strong, which is a challenge to take for beginners.
Effects: the White Vein is highly known for its stimulating properties, making it a good alternative to coffee. It also helps lift your mood, enhances concentration and motivation, as well as give you that stamina you need to finish the day.
The middle between the White and Red Vein, the Green Vein, is taken from leaves between the early and mature stages. To understand the difference, we’ll look at the alkaloid concentration of the leaves. Green Vein Kratom has a higher concentration of mitragynine alkaloid that gives this vein its unique properties.
Features: ideal for both beginners and veteran Kratom users.
Effects: has the right balance of relaxation and stimulating effects. It also gives that pleasant numbing sensation while soothing down your nerves. Some strains are ideal for social gatherings, provide mental clarity, and give you that pleasant, uplifting feeling.
Once the Kratom leaves become fully mature, you can now see streaks of red veins underneath. However, different varieties offer different effects, depending on the type of red vein you’re taking.
Features: highly suitable for beginners because it gives that pleasant calming effect and peace of mind.
Effects: People gravitate towards the Red Vein because of it’s highly soothing and relaxing effects. It’s the type strain of Kratom that provides muscle relaxation and a deep numbing effect. You can also use this to promote sleep and give you a sense of calm and well-being.
Under major category has substrains that got their names based on the country the Kratom was taken from. Such examples are:
- Maeng Da
- Malay –
Different types of Kratom forms
Companies provide Kratom in different ways to give you the best possible experience. You can get Kratom in:
- Powder – the leaves are ground to a powder-like consistency. You can use it like tea, make your own capsules, add it to your food, or take it as is.
- Tablets and capsules – available in different dosages and strengths, this form is suitable for those who don’t like Kratom’s taste.
- Kratom extracts – a concentrated form of Kratom if you want something strong and potent at small serving size.
You don’t have to stick to one type of Kratom. With so many options to choose from, you can cycle between strains and take it according to your preferred style. You’ll have a better chance of finding success once you become familiar with how each strain works.
Kratom powder is the most commonly available form of Kratom in the market. It’s easily absorbed and acts fast, so you’ll feel the effects within minutes, depending on how much you take. It’s also the most versatile as you can prepare and adjust it to match your goal. Here are the different ways how to use Kratom for the best results.
Read the recommendations
Some companies recommend how much Kratom powder to take per day. Depending on the kratom strain, you can take 2g-8g of Kratom powder per day. 1 teaspoon can hold roughly 4 grams of Kratom powder, although you can use a small digital scale for a more accurate dosing
Toss and Wash
A common practice is done by those who are in a hurry. However, Kratom powder can stick to the roof of your mouth as well as your throat. To do the toss and wash to make consuming it easy without coughing and choking:
- Measure out your preferred amount of Kratom. Place it in a really small cup to prevent spillage and make it easy to ingest.
- Have water or juice ready. Water is okay, but Kratom can have a strong earthy, grassy flavor. For those who have a sensitive palate, a glass of juice will be perfect.
- Toss a portion of the powder in your mouth, then wash it down with a couple of swallows of liquid.
- Continue to take a portion at a time, follow it with a drink until you consume all of the kratom powder.
Take your time to do the toss and wash. The last thing you want to happen is you coughing out the powder or gagging. It takes patience, and with continued practice, you’ll get used to the taste.
Add it to food
You can add Kratom to smoothies, juices. Juices are best because the acidity can help break down the alkaloids found in Kratom. You can mix with yogurt or your protein shake for a healthier option to make the absorption easier without compromising the absorption rate. Should you want a sweeter option, you can add it to your chocolate recipe.
Be careful not to mix Kratom powder with any hot food. Intense heat can ruin the good compounds found in Kratom so only add it to warm or cold food items.
Put it in capsules
If you can’t take the taste of Kratom powder, you can make a capsule of your own. You can use 000 capsules that you can purchase online and fill them with your preferred Kratom strain or mix. What’s good about making your own capsule is that you can customize it by mixing your favorite strains.
You don’t need special equipment for filling the capsules; just a simple spoon and a capsule filling funnel will suffice. It is time-consuming, and you can always get a 100-hole capsule filling machine to make it faster. However, make that investment only if you plan to do this long-term.
Something is soothing and relaxing when you drink a warm cup of tea. Get the same pleasurable experience with Kratom by steeping Kratom powder in warm, pre-boiled water. To make your tea:
- Boil water and let it cool for 2-3 minutes so that it’s warm enough to extract all the alkaloids, but not too hot that you destroy the compounds.
- While waiting, place your preferred amount of Kratom in a cup. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice to encourage the extraction.
- Once the water is at the perfect temperature, pour it over the Kratom powder.
- Let it steep for 15-20 minutes, then strain. Repeat the straining until the tea is sediment-free.
Once you know how to use Kratom powder, it’s going to be easy for you to take advantage of its effects. You can control your intake and measure just how much you need to get the results you need.
Kratom can come in many forms to match your style and preference. Traditionally, people used to consume Kratom by chewing the leaves. Now, you can get Kratom in the ground or powdered form and in capsules or tablets. As a beginner, you need to know the best way to take Kratom to help your body get used to the botanical as well as get the most out of it.
Take it with food
Kratom has a myriad of alkaloids present, which have been subject to different studies for centuries. These compounds interact with your body system the same way as medications and vitamins. If taken on an empty stomach, you can experience different gastrointestinal issues, including stomach pains, nausea, and other problems.
To lessen the disturbance, it’s best that you take Kratom with meals. Food may slow down the absorption rate, which is why some suggest that you take it on an empty stomach. However, this isn’t a good practice because of the potential side effects that you can experience. If you don’t want to lessen the potency, a bit of banana, apple, or bread is good. Not enough to make you feel full but just right to the helpline and protect your stomach.
Wash it down with juice
The toss and wash is another popular way of taking Kratom powder because it’s easy and simple, requiring the least preparation possible. However, you’ll have a good taste of the Kratom on your tongue. Lessen the flavor by downing it with juice or a flavored drink. This will make swallowing it palatable and make it easy for you to get used to this method.
Mix it with a protein shake
If you have good-quality Kratom powder and you don’t like the toss and wash method, you can just mix it with a protein shake. The shake can dull down the flavor of Kratom and also help protect your stomach from reacting.
Start low then high
Whether it’s your first time to take Kratom or when you’re trying out a new strain, it’s best that you start low. It’s easier for your body to accept Kratom with the least side effects if you start low, rather than tapering down from a high dose.
Taking Kratom in low doses enhances alertness, while high doses can potentially cause sedation. This is because of the mitragynine and 7-hydroxy mitragynine found in Kratom. These compounds interact with opioid receptors in the brain, causing a sedative effect when taken at high doses.
Once your body gets used to the compounds, gradually increase your dose. This method lessens the risks of sides, and you prevent developing tolerance and dependency too fast too soon.
The best way to take Kratom is to know your style and match it to how your body responds to the botanical. Keep it simple, and just enjoy the experience in the simplest way possible. Follow the recommendations stated by the brand, and be on the lookout for any side effects. Remember to start low, then gradually increase your intake to match your needs.
There are all kinds of phrases we attribute to anxiety and depression. Maybe you suffer from a “nervous stomach” or perhaps you’re “all nerves”. Or you might be “down in the dumps”, “blue”, or “off-kilter”. But these types of statements are generally attributed to temporary bouts of emotion, perhaps situational, that fade away almost as quickly as they come on. In other words, they are mild and fleeting. If your emotional state seems mired in ongoing, intense anxiety or depression, you may eventually determine that it can’t be cured by taking a nap or eating some ice cream. You could be dealing with serious anxiety and depression that impact your life and make it difficult to carry on. And when you visit a doctor, you’ll likely find that the knee-jerk reaction is to prescribe pharmaceuticals. But these could leave you feeling emotionless, rather than restoring you to your natural, happy state. Or they might have other detrimental side effects. Isn’t there a better way? There may well be.
There are a number of ways to treat and manage anxiety and depression naturally. They won’t work for everyone – some people suffer from a chemical imbalance that may only be treatable through prescription medication. But if you are averse to using chemicals, you could definitely try natural means of controlling your emotional state. A good place to start is probably by seeing a psychologist. Unless you have a severe chemical imbalance (or even if you do), there are likely other factors contributing to your anxiety and depression.
Perhaps you’ve suffered a trauma like the loss of a loved one, abuse of some sort, or an injury or illness that has had lasting effects. Maybe your job is extremely demanding and stressful. Or you might be having trouble in your personal relationships. Money problems could be a factor. Whatever issues you’re dealing with, or have failed to deal with thus far, talking through them could help you to find solutions and reach a better mental and emotional state. And whatever else you’re doing to deal with anxiety and depression, therapy could be an important component to management and recovery.
You should also address your physical state. Keeping your body healthy and well can have a positive impact on your emotions. If your eating habits are unhealthy, your lifestyle is largely sedentary, you’re operating on a sleep deficit, and/or you’re using alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs to cope, it’s no wonder you’re feeling awful. Your body wasn’t built to suffer these kinds of abuse long-term. When you stop abusing substances, you create a healthy and balanced diet, you start working in daily exercise, and you get a full night’s rest, you might be amazed by the results, not only physically, but mentally and emotionally, as well. You can also try adding vitamin supplements to your diet or consider naturopathic alternatives to prescription medications, like the compounds offered by NutriChem, for example.
And don’t underestimate the value of stress reduction. In this busy, modern world it’s easy to get caught up in obligations to others and forget to take care of yourself. But in terms of natural anxiety and depression treatment you can accomplish a lot by reducing the stressors in your life and taking time to attend to your needs, whether that means taking a break, going for a massage, or pursuing a personal passion that has fallen by the wayside. Not everyone will be able to manage anxiety and depression naturally, but it’s worth a try if you’d rather not start with pharmaceuticals.

One of the oldest alcoholic beverages has, logically, many interesting stories. And some facts about wine are truly curious and surprising.
Wine is a universal drink, there are wines for all tastes. And each person, in particular, is fond of different types and classes.
Fun facts about the wine you didn’t know
Write down important and curious facts about the wine that you may not have known
One of the oldest alcoholic beverages has, logically, many interesting stories. And some facts about wine are truly curious and surprising. Wine is a universal drink, there are wines for all tastes. And each person, in particular, is fond of different types and classes. Generally, we drink wine made from grapes, but in certain parts of the world, there are some made from some strange components.
In 2012 a wine was marketed that was aged with a meteorite, which apparently gave it a very particular flavor.
In China wine is made from the penises of dogs, seals, and deer, and in Korea, a type of wine is sold that is made from human feces.
Although France is recognized for the quality of its wines, this drink is consumed most in the Vatican with a record of 75 liters per person per year.
China is not far off the list, but it cannot beat either France or Italy.
The oldest evidence for the existence of wine is from the region of present-day Iran and is approximately 8000 years old.
Historical data on wine affirms that the first drinks arose by mistake, when the yeast fungi made contact with stored grapes, turning sugar into alcohol. The method was later perfected by the Egyptians and spread throughout the Mediterranean by the Greeks for several hundred years.
A 12-liter bottle of wine was sold at Dubai International Airport for $ 195,000. The bottle was a Balthazar and contained 2009 Chateau Margaux wine from the Medoc region of northern Bordeaux in France.
Bottles of wine that have been rescued from the sea in perfect condition, prove that the sea is perfect for aging.
In addition, the scientists reviewed the data on wine and its aging under the waters of the sea does not harm the environment and is one hundred percent environmentally friendly.
It is not necessary to be an expert to enjoy a glass of wine, but the more we learn about this ancient drink, the closer we will be to knowing its deep secrets.
The sweet nectar is very famous all over the world and every year billions of liters are created around the world and, as we observe, not only from the vine.
What is Kratom?
If you have reached this page, you have probably heard of a plant called Kratom and are curious to know more. If so, you’re in the right place. The objective of this blog is to provide the greatest amount of information about this wonderful plant called kratom. The Kratom, scientifically known by its Latin name Mitragyna, is a moderately tall tree, from 4 to 15 meters, from the same family as the coffee plant. Kratom trees grow in tropical and subtropical areas of Southeast Asia, mainly in Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia. Although it is mostly known by a small number of biologists and botanists in the western world since the 1800s, the exposure of kratom to the rest of the world has come quite recently. In the last decade, however, a growing number of researchers and amateurs have had access to this amazing plant, and as a result, our knowledge of it has increased to a great extent. It is now when the rest of the world is beginning to learn what has been known in Asia for centuries: the kratom is a truly unique plant in the world. I bought these kratom pills, and they really work!
The Kratom is a tree, but when people speak of kratom, it usually refers to the leaves of it. These dark green leaves, whose dimensions are approximately 17 cm long and 10 cm wide, are continually detached from the tree throughout the year. These leaves have been part of the culture of Thailand and Malaysia for hundreds of years, or even more. The omnipresence of kratom in Thai culture is such that in some regions it has been estimated that 70% of the population uses this plant daily. Numerous Thai workers and farmers chew fresh kratom leaves to improve their productivity, work longer and harder while maintaining a positive mentality. Traditional Thai medicine has prescribed kratom for decades as a remedy for gastrointestinal distress, diarrhea, and congestion. As early as 1897, the kratom was proposed as a possible substitute for opium.
Thai kratom users generally prefer to chew fresh kratom leaves, although they also consume kratom powder. In Malaysia, where kratom is also known by the name of Ketum, kratom is boiled with water and a tea is made which is then cooled and then sold in street stalls. The effects of kratom are very peculiar and in some sense, contradictory depending on the amount of kratom consumed. In small amounts, the kratom has a stimulating or euphoric effect, and in larger amounts, the effect is a sedative similar to an opioid. It has been discovered that the Kratom contains more than 25 different chemical substances (called alkaloids) that are responsible for these effects. Of these alkaloids, it is believed that mitragynine contributes to the stimulating effects of kratom while 7-hydroxyvitamin is the main alkaloid responsible for the sedative effects. As with most plants, however, it is believed that all alkaloids in the plant contribute in some way.
The Kratom has been used in Thailand as a medicinal plant for centuries; long before it was banned by the Thai government due to political and economic influence vendors opium were threatened by the growing popularity of kratom in the early sixteenth century. Another factor that influenced the wrong ban on kratom was the disclosure of false information by the population that did not really know what Kratom was capable of and its security. Also, due to users of kratom as a recreational “drug” who consider kratom as a legal equivalent of marijuana and other similar products.
Because of this, many scientists and experts began to abandon their research on the potential of this plant, probably because their laboratory or place of work was affected by laws that restricted their use and possession. However, in some territories where kratom is still legal, certain scientists and researchers began to study the possible beneficial effects of kratom for humans.
There are users who mainly buy kratom extracts like red elephant kratom or capsules to increase their ability to perform long or especially hard tasks more easily. This is because, as has been shown, kratom has stimulating capacity in does little. Similarly, according to Thai tradition, farmers used kratom to cope with long hours of work in the field without getting tired. The kratom is undoubtedly beneficial. Those with severe pain in the joints or muscles can relieve their ailments by using kratom without having to worry about side effects. And the best part is that kratom is natural, a gift from nature.
Kratom Improves Concentration
If you think that the kratom only serves to alleviate the physical pain, it can not be more wrong, the kratom also helps to alleviate the emotional pain. The kratom is distinguished by being a powerful depressor and has truly helped many people with emotional problems. It is also perfect for those under the withdrawal syndrome of any type of drugs, especially opiates. The kratom is undoubtedly beneficial. The Kratom has innumerable beneficial effects, it is an effective relaxing herb. People love the way it stimulates the mind and body and its calming and relaxing effects at the same time. It is perfect for people with tedious workdays, at the end of the workday they have kratom tea they lie down and sleep like little angels.
Kratom can also help people who perform tasks that involve great mental effort. This plant greatly improves the power of concentration and increases efficiency and accuracy. For all these reasons the kratom must remain legal, although with restrictions, of course. Kratom can be addictive if it is not used properly.

When you buy a luxurious car, the first thing that strikes your mind is how to protect it to retain its value. This is natural and every sane person would think in this direction. If you have a garage, you might think that there is no need to buy a car cover for your dodge challenger, but this should not be the case. Especially, when winter arrives and people start to park their cars inside their houses, they start believing that there is no need to give an extra protection layer with a quality car cover. In this article, we will discuss the importance of indoor car covers. Further, we would see the pros and cons of parking the car in a garage vs protecting it through the cover.
Importance of car covers
Most people do not argue about the importance of car covers when the cars are parked outside the house and especially when these are parked for long hours. However, the question arises whether these should be protected with the help of car covers indoor or not? Well, the answer is positive. You should protect your dodge challenger even when it is parked inside the house because there are chances of minor scratches that can result in devaluing the car. Luxurious cars with even slight damage can ruin your investment, therefore it is very important to protect your car even inside the garage. In addition to minor scratches, there are possibilities of insects and small bugs attacking your car which are normally found in places like garages.
What should you prefer: Car cover or the garage?
When parking of cars is concerned, there are two ways through which people add protection to their vehicles. First, they can park their cars in confined places like garages and parking lots made for this purpose and second is that they park the car in the open air with the protective layer of the best car covers available in the market. Both these options have their pros and cons and you need to look at your personal requirements before you make a good decision. It is very important to keep an eye on the factors involved in making this decision because a wrong decision would ruin your huge investment.
Parking your car in the garage
When you park your car in the garage, you certainly are at an advantage because it would provide you with ultimate security that you cannot expect from a car cover. In a garage, the best thing is that your car would not be exposed to any extreme weather conditions, and being in a confined place, it would be protected largely. However, it is cumbersome for some people to park their cars in garages and take it out when they must visit markets and other places. For this purpose, most people park their cars outside their homes in the daytime and only take their car to garages at night. This is how they bring the advantage of the garage at a disadvantage by exposing their car to all the risks that are involved in parking the car outside. If you are parking your dodge challenger outside your home for this purpose, you should make it sure that you have protected it with a quality cover, that does not only provide your vehicle with safety but is also very easy to cover it.
Another advantage of garages is that it is your personal space, and no one would take it. On the other hand, when you park your car outside the house, there are chances that you would not find an appropriate place, especially when you are living in a congested area. When we look at the disadvantages of garages, the biggest con is that you need to invest a good amount of money in order to get a good garage. You would be required to spare space from your home and would be required to spend money on the renovation purposes. If you are willing to spend the money, then there is nothing better than owning a garage for your dodge challenger.
Using car covers for vehicle protection
When you use car covers for vehicle protection, you enjoy a lot of advantages and the first thing is that you need not spend huge funds for the procurement of a garage adjacent to your home. You can buy the protection at cheap rates for your dodge challenger from online retailers and can protect your car on the go. Further, when you have a good quality car cover that can be placed in the trunk of your car you can easily take it with you anywhere you want to go. This makes you able to protect your car at any place without the fear of damage, even in extreme weather.
You should always buy a custom car cover for your vehicle as it provides you with the best safety. These custom car covers are designed for specific cars. If you are unable to find the customer cover for a specific model, you can always get it tailor-made for your ride. This is an inexpensive method of protecting your car from external factors like wind, UV rays, moisture, and insects. The best way to buy these car covers is through online stores where a huge variety of these covers are available and you can select any type depending on your requirements.

Feeling pained on your tooth? Do not wait too long seeking help from a dentist, as first, you would never want to bear the pain of an aching tooth for a long time and second, you would never want to have an incomplete set of teeth.
Saving your tooth is better than losing them and replacing it with false teeth. The best and most successful way to save an extremely decayed tooth is the root canal procedure. This procedure can either be performed by an endodontist or a dentist. But, needless to say, whoever it is who will perform the treatment, it should be the most trusted and reliable, especially that it is not the most basic tooth procedure being performed in dental clinics.
Many dental clinics around you can seek help from, but the biggest question is “which amongst them to consult?”. To help you find the best dental clinic where the root canal procedure is performed, read through below.
Where To Get Root Canal Procedure
Consider the following when choosing a dental clinic to seek root canal services:
Highly recommended by your friends/relatives
Ask around your friends and relatives who went through root canal procedures on the dental clinics or at least dentists they can recommend. Is the dentist who performed their root canal procedure did a good job? If yes, visit the dentist immediately, if not, delete them from your options and look somewhere else.
If no one within your inner circle went through this kind of procedure, check on the internet. The happiest and most satisfied patients will surely post their overwhelming appreciation and gratitude to the dentist or clinic that performed the procedure, same as with unhappy and dissatisfied patients, posting their complaints, rants, and dismay.
Call or visit their clinic
The best way to assess not only their service but their employees is by calling or visiting their clinic. The root canal is not a one day process, it takes a frequent visit to dentists until the entire procedure is completed. You would not want to deal with a dentist even receptionists or dental assistants who do not know how to treat their patients with respect.
Welcoming you with a great smile as you step into the clinic is a good way to break your fear of visiting the dentist. When you visit their clinic, you may want to check the clinic itself, is the clinic clean? Is their comfort room well maintained and sanitized? Are their magazines up to date? All these are important details to incorporate on how well they keep their services up to date and accurate. If simple bathroom cleaning is a job they cannot do right, what more with cleaning their dental tools?
This is also a good way to know the dental clinic’s accessibility to public transportation or parking lot. Root canal procedure takes numerous visits to clinics, and having a hard time going to their clinics is not the most ideal.
The best way to know how well they perform root canal treatment is by asking patients who experience their service first hand. Ask for a list of their previous root canal patients and call them. When calling them, it is important that you immediately introduce yourself and inform them of the purpose of your call, as you would not want them to feel they are being called by an intruder.
Ask questions like, are they happy with the result of their root canal treatment? Is the clinic or dentist easy to contact? And so on. Ask only relevant questions as you would not want to waste your time and their time as well.
So you can assess their knowledge and your expectations as well, ask questions related to the service. Some of the questions to ask are:
- “Am I a good candidate for this treatment? If not, what can work best for me?”
- “How painful it is to undergo root canal? If your tolerance to pain is very minimal, you also have to ask for a possible workaround to subside the pain”
- “If I do not want to undergo a root canal, what should I expect?”
- “Who will perform the root canal procedure, is it a dentist or an orthodontist?”
- “How long is the entire process of root canal takes, from the first appointment to complete healing?”
- “Will you administer anesthesia during the procedure?”
- “Are there any risks I should expect when I decide to undergo the procedure?”
- “After a root canal, how long will my tooth/teeth last?”
- “Is there a possibility of a need for a second root canal?”
- “How much does the procedure cost?” – this is not to choose the dentist who is asking for the lowest price but to give you an idea of how much you have to prepare
- “Does a crown required after the procedure? If so, is it included on my package or do I have to pay it separately?”
- “How many patients you performed root canal procedures?”
- “What should I do after the procedure? Maintenance and the like”
The more questions you ask, the better. You would never want to end up regretting because you go through a procedure that you do not have any idea about.
Root canal procedure can give strength back to your tooth. Hence, it is only necessary that you immediately seek help from a dentist or orthodontist before your chance of saving your tooth will all be gone.

You might have heard about three kinds of fats in your daily life. However, much misinformation and misconceptions about fats have been created over time. Almost all fat types are healthy and important for our bodies. You must incorporate them in your diet. There is a dominant fat in the food that we eat.
For instance, olive oil contains 75% monounsaturated fat and butter contains 60% saturated fats When you are on a Ketogenic diet, it is particularly important for you to eat the right kind of fats since 70% of your calorie intake comes from fats. Before you read about fats in detail, here is the summary of kinds of fats for you to remember easily.
Good quality Fats Saturated Fats: Saturated Fats are found in butter, red meat, ghee, cream, lard, eggs, and palm oil/ coconut oil (MCTs).
Monounsaturated Fats: Monounsaturated Fats are found in avocados, extra virgin olive oil, macadamia nut oil, and avocado oil.
Natural Trans Fats: Natural Trans Fats are found in dairy products and meat of grass-fed animals.
Natural Polyunsaturated Fats: Natural Polyunsaturated Fats are found in fish oil, fish, chia seeds, and flaxseed. Even though seeds and legumes are not prohibited in Ketogenic diet, you must eat them in moderation since they contain high amount of Omega-6. You must consume Omega-3 and Omega-6 in almost equal ratio.
Bad Quality Fats Processed Polyunsaturated Fats: Processed Polyunsaturated Fats are not good for health for Ketogenic followers says KetoSumo. They are found in seed oils and vegetables such as Canola, Sesame, Soybean, Corn, Grapeseed, Sunflower, and Peanut.
Processed Trans Fats: Processed Trans Fats are found in margarine, commercially baked foods, and processed foods. Most of the food you consume in Ketogenic regime should contain monounsaturated and saturated fats. Now, let us study about these fats in detail.
Saturated Fatty Acids Saturated fats are important to keep the immune system in good health and maintain bone density and testosterone at a normal level. Saturated fats were wrongly considered unhealthy for a long time, but recent studies have proved their benefits for the body. In addition, as opposed to the popular myth, they are not bad for your heart.
They can be found in Butter, Red meat, Ghee, Eggs, Lard, Cream, Coconut oil (MCTs), Palm oil, Cocoa Butterjust simple foods that have been a part of our diet for ages. They are responsible for improving the LDL/ HDL cholesterol level. Saturated fats enhance the concentration of LDL, which is good for you since cholesterol is important for the body. It is utilized for the creation of hormones such as cortisol and testosterone, which are vital for our good health. LDL or Low-Density Lipoprotein serves the purpose of transportation for cholesterol.
Cholesterol moves around the body with the help of LDL. LDL is present in the body in four sizes: (Dense LDL) very small LDL/ small LDL: This LDL is very small and they can easily seep in through the arterial wall. They are also responsible for causing premature disease of the coronary artery.
Intermediate LDL or large LDL: This LDL is large and they are not linked with the enhanced danger of heart ailments. When you consume good quantities of saturated fat, large LDL increases in the blood and small LDL decreases.
Saturated fats increased the amount of HDL or High-Density Lipoprotein. HDL takes out the cholesterol from the blood. It averts build up in arteries because of very small and small LDL. They improve the ratio of LDL and HDL, which must be close to 1:1.
Monounsaturated Fatty Acids or MUFAs
Monounsaturated Fatty Acids also comes in the category of healthy fats. They improve your resistance to insulin and enhance the ratio of HDL and LDL. Sunflower and olive oil are the main source of monounsaturated fats. They stabilize blood pressure, protect photo-aging of skin, increase HDL, and cut down belly fat. MUFAs are found in Avocados, Extra virgin olive oil, Macadamia nut oil, Avocado oil, Lard, Bacon fat, and Goose Fat.
Natural Trans Fatty Acids
Natural TFAs are found in grass-fed animal and dairy fat. Grain-fed animals do not contain many natural TFAs. They are healthy for the human body and protect us against cancer, helps lose body fat, lowers hypertension, and provides several other biological benefits. It is essential to eat a high amount of fat in Ketogenic diets, but you have to make sure that you take the right type of fat.
You must know the right temperature for cooking for various oils. Avocado oil and olive oil are best implemented for cold use or light cooking. Ghee, butter, coconut oil, and bacon fat are best used for cooking on high heat.
Trans Fatty Acids
Although Trans fats are not incorporated in fatty foods, they need special mention. They are made from unnatural chemical processes that give them more shelf life. Hydrogenation is one of the processes, which includes adding hydrogen to Trans Fatty Acids.
It alters the placement of hydrogen atoms inside the chain of fatty acids. In the nutshell, whenever you see the label of a food packet with the words ‘hydrogenated’ or ‘trans fats’, you must not eat it. Trans Fatty Acids are terrible for your health and disrupt your level of LDL/HDL cholesterol. TFAs are the unhealthiest form of fats available in the market. Hydrogenation involved securing polyunsaturated oils so that they do not become rancid. Hydrogenated fats are utilized in fast foods, processed foods, commercially baked foods, and margarine.
You must stay away from such foods when you are making so much effort for your Ketogenic diet. Processed TFAs are the common cause of coronary heart diseases.
They are also linked with numerous long-standing problems related to health such as breast cancer, depression, and obesity.

Before you start working, read these tips
Most people consider online jobs because they can save time and money spent on commuting and other things. But sadly, they end up losing their money. Not only money, but they also become depressed and underproductive. Usually, these things happen when you don’t know to manage the problems related to Side Jobs.
- Enhance your knowledge to understand the scam
When you enter the home-based working environment, you must remember to differentiate fraud and legit jobs. Hence, before joining the home-based working environment, you must make sure to focus on the learning process. You must allocate time to learn scam and how to identify scam jobs.

- Common sense must be utilized
Being in an online working environment will become a hard task if you don’t have common sense. An individual without common sense will not be able to survive in the market. Thus, you must utilize your common sense when you are looking for Side Jobs. You will find a lot of opportunities, but you must know to pick the right opportunity by evaluating it. There can be a lot of job invitations, yet, you must remember to find the lucrative offer.
But, when you are looking for a lucrative opportunity, you must utilize your common sense. For example, there can be a job that pays a lot for something small. In such a case, you must think about whether it is practical. Would someone waste their money in such a way unless they have lost their brain? So, think before you accept the project. If the project is being marketed at the market rate, then, it is reasonable, and there is nothing suspicious about it.
Another example, if a company or job post boasts about how legitimate they are. It is apparent that they are not! Even search engines tend to ignore such job promotions. You have to be vigilant, not manipulative.
But then, when you are dealing with scammers, commons sense will not be enough. You have to enhance your knowledge as much as you can!

This ad has the power to capture your emotions as you are have given space for it. You will decide without thinking or evaluating the ad. You have to be patient and determine if you are looking for an online job.
- Play your part
Of course, you must doubt every chance that you get. If you doubt, you will spend a lot of time to check whether it is legit or scam. If you don’t doubt, you will click ‘accept’ right away, and that’s the end! Why is it the end? Well, there are different scammers with a different purpose. So, if the scammer who posted the job might have needed some data, by clicking ‘accept’ he would have got it. So, you have to play your part really well. You must study and do your homework before you accept a job. Even if an organization requests money, you shouldn’t send it because it is not the way. You don’t pay to get jobs. Instead, they pay you to get the work done. There are many ways to check whether the job is legit or not. You can read reviews or even search the company website to find the accuracy.
That being said, you can always work online if you are determined!

Everyone loves movies and everyone loves saving money as well. That’s why in this article, we’re going to mix these two things together and talk to you about how you can watch movies online for free. And yes, you’ve heard us correctly: watch movies online for free. If you visit a good website like yesmovieshub.com, it has so much of choice you will be able to enjoy your time well on this website. This is one website, which give good quality movies to you and does not charge anything in return, there are no hidden charges at all, so you can be sure.
Some of you might find this surprising because there’s an entire industry revolving around paid subscriptions. Netflix and Hulu are just a few platforms where you pay to watch your favorite movies and TV shows and they’re very popular. But what if your favorite movie isn’t on those websites? You’ll find that you have to wait for months until these services add the said movies to their database and that’s really not that convenient. But that is not the case with yesmovieshub.com, they are very prompt and if there is a request from the users to add a new movie, they do that in real quick time a good service makes it a popular choice with people from all age groups.
So we’re going to talk about looking up movies online instead.
Now, before we begin, we understand that not all countries have a free copyrights law. Some countries are a lot stricter than others and people can go to jail for online streaming. This is also why services like Netflix and Hulu have prevailed because it’s a legal way to view content and not get in trouble with the law. However, if you’re from a country that isn’t so strict, then why are you spending money when the internet’s got your back?
It’s really simple actually- all you have to do is write your favorite movie’s name and just type “watch online free” next to it. Immediately you’ll find hundreds of websites that have the movie on their database. Of course, some might not be as free as they’re advertising them to be- in fact, some websites have the most annoying habit of stopping mid-movie and demanding that you sign up to their paid subscription plans to watch the movie. But when you are making use of yesmovieshub.com, you will be able to see the top movie listed and you can select the one which you want to watch there is nothing better. So what are you waiting for? Just go in for a good movie and enjoy your time.
This is annoying, but you can get around it by checking the movie earlier on by moving it forward to check if that is the case. If it’s not- then just relax- websites that offer free services only require you to watch a couple of ads in the beginning and every time you pause so you don’t have to worry about a particular scene being ruined by, say, that ad on cat insurance that you don’t need.
Movies watching are one of the oldest past times in various societies and cultures. It has existed since the adamant of filmmaking. In olden days when televisions were not so common people would gather around a public TV and watch movies together. Gradually this changed to people purchasing CDs and some even recording the movies for others to watch. The internet revolution completely changed this too. Now, you no longer have to wait for long hours outside the cinema to buy tickets, nor do you have to buy a CD, as you can simply find the movies online. There are lots of people who enjoy watching movies, but sometimes people do not have money and may not a get chance to go to the cinema due to their own issues. So if you do not have time or you are busy this is one of the best things.
Also, you’ve found a website that does offer this service, it’s best to keep using that one because more visitors to the website will mean that the creators of the site will work towards making the site better. A lot of the time websites with these services are shut down because there isn’t enough traffic. By going back to a website that does offer this service, you’re essentially making sure that it stays up and running on the internet and that’ll be a win-win situation for you.
Additionally, these websites also offer downloading options, so you can also download your favorite movies for offline viewing as well. In any case, we find using online resources to watch free full movies to be much more convenient and affordable. Hope you agree with us!
Free online watching movies is actually a lot economically feasible. You now no longer have to waste loads of money buying CDs of various films as you can watch movies online.
