What Are the Harmful Ingredients in your Toothpaste?

Many of us purchase toothpaste and other personal hygiene products without even bothering to read the list of ingredients, blindly trusting manufacturers with consumers best interests at heart. It can be a costly mistake. Toothpaste contains many potentially harmful ingredients, including some that can lead to serious long-term health problems.


Sodium Fluoride  POISON

Dentists have trumpeted the virtues of fluoride for years, claiming it the best defense against tooth decay. Fluoride supposedly builds strong, healthy teeth. In reality, sodium fluoride, a by-product of aluminum manufacturing, can also be found in rat poisons and industrial pesticides. According to the Akron Regional Poison Center, ingesting 1/10 of an ounce of fluoride can kill a 100-lb. adult. Ingesting even a small amount of sodium fluoride may cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Yet despite its dangers, sodium fluoride continues to be a staple in all leading brand of toothpaste.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate  POISON

Added as a detergent and cleansing agent, sodium laurel sulfate and its cousin sodium laureth sulfate pose a wide range of potential health risks. On its own, sodium laurel sulfate can damage eyes, irritate skin and lead to labored breathing. According to the American College of Toxicology, sodium laurel sulfate may stay within the body for up to five days, accumulating in the heart, liver, lungs and brain.

Triclosan  POISON

Found most often in anti-bacterial products, triclosan supplements many toothpaste brands. Unfortunately, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies triclosan as a pesticide, stating it poses a risk to both human health and the environment. Scientists categorize triclosan as a chlorophenol, which is a type of chemical suspected of causing cancer in humans.

In a world where corporations control the government, the power to control the corporations is in the hands of the people. Corporations we buy from thrive and prosper, and corporations we don’t buy vanish. Changing the world is completely up to us and is also very simple. The ball is in your court.

Beware, not all toothpastes you find in ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ sections in the grocery store are healthy. Many companies provide fluoride-free toothpaste, which is great, but then if you read the rest of the ingredients you would find all sorts of other poisons that you don’t want to be using. We must be vigilant and research every ingredient within.

Can you spot the hidden trans-fats in your Coffee?

Do you know food manufacturers are hiding trans fats within food products, in particular, 3-in-1 coffee beverage – and still labeling them as zero grams trans fats! 

People are busy.  They’re trying to make the best decision for themselves and their families in the grocery store.  They’re often trying to make the healthy choice.  And trans fats have been in the news a lot recently.  So even if our regular shopper doesn’t know exactly why trans fats are bad, when she’s faced with a product choice in the grocery store, she’s likely to think:
“Oh, I remember something about avoiding trans fats on the news. So I should choose this product labelled with the big red “zero grams trans fats” on the front!”
And who would blame her? It’s a sensible choice to make.

Except when the food companies are intentionally misleading the consumer to increase sales and still including trans fats in their products.

What are trans fats & why are they used?

Trans fats are a manufactured fat that is included in processed foods to extend their shelf life.   They are listed on ingredients labels as hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated vegetable oil.

Most producers of coffee formulations utilize a "hydrogenation" process that modifies the molecular structure of fats, so that the vegetable oil used could become more tolerant to high temperature and resistance to turning rancid. However, this process generates the production of "trans fat", which has no benefit but cause harm to the human health.

Why should I avoid eating trans fats?

Trans fat tends to build up in the body and cannot be broken down easily. Its long-term intake can bring about a high risk of various cardiovascular diseases, such as coronary arteriosclerosis, as it causes an elevation in the level of the "bad" cholesterol and a decline in the level of the "good" ones. 

Trans fats have been banned in Denmark and New York City. 

The Great Trans Fats Deception
According to US FDA, if a product has less than half a gram of trans fats per serving, they must write zero grams on the Nutrition Facts label.

But when was the last time you ate exactly one serving of any product?

Let's look at our beloved Coffee Mate

But now let's look at their ingredient list:

Looking at the ingredients list we have “Vegetable Oil (Partially Hydrogenated Coconut or Palm Kernel, Hydrogenated Soybean)”.

"Hydrogenated" oils ARE trans fats!

So even though the label says zero grams trans fats, and zero grams trans fats are highlighted on the front of the package – reading the ingredients list clearly shows us that this product contains trans fats!

Ignore the marketing on products and packaging.  Turn the package around and read the ingredients.  It’s the only way you’ll know what you’re eating!

So how can you avoid hidden trans fats in your coffee?
If a coffee contains hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils of any kind, it contains trans fats.  Don’t eat it.

How to choose a good Lingzhi (Ganoderma)

There are so many types of Lingzhi in the market. How do you know which is the good one?

Listed below are four most vital criteria for identifying and selecting high quality Lingzhi. They are Species, Cultivation, Processing Method and Accreditation.


There are more than 2,000 types of mushrooms in this world. Out of this, only about 10% (200 types) are edible. Of the 10%, only about 20 are in the Lingzhi/Ganoderma category, which give therapeutic effects.

In this 20 species, it is subdivided into about 205 strains of ganoderma. Out of these 205 strains, only about 10 can be cultivated in large quantities to provide raw material for human consumption. Lingzhi are differentiated by color. Red lingzhi is the most commonly used and have the highest active ingredients.

Shuang Hor's Lingzhi come from the ganoderma lucidum and ganoderma tsugae (red lingzhi species). They have been exclusively patented so that other companies cannot produce the same kind of Lingzhi with similar efficacy. These 2 species possess 3 characteristics that make them better prospects for mass cultivation:

(a) easy to grow
(b) heavier in weight
(c) possess strong anti-pollution capacity.

It is important to highlight that not all Lingzhi are safe to eat. For instance, pregnant women are advised against eating certain Lingzhi. However, Shuang Hor's Lingzhi is very safe and in fact, is recommended for consumption by all walks of life, including a 2-day old baby, pregnant ladies, terminally ill patients and elderly people.


Lingzhi is a form of fungi growing on other plants; absorbing what is in the environment around them, be it poisons from snakes or pollutants from the air. As such, Lingzhi grown in the wild may not be safe to eat as we do not know the environment they have been exposed to.

A conducive growing environment of a ganoderma fruiting body should possess the following:

(a) Humidity of approximately 85% to 95%. The moisture content is relatively high.

(b) Temperature of between 26'C to 32'C; not too hot, not too cold.

(c) Lighting should be as dim as possible during mycelium growth and enhanced gradually as the fruiting body develops.

(d) Ventilation whereby the concentration of carbon dioxide should be less than 300 ppm.

(e) Culture medium (food for ganoderma) should comprise of good sawdust and mixed with a sufficient combination of essential nutrients such as proteins and minerals.

That is why Shuang Hor's Lingzhi are grown in greenhouses, which are properly controlled to fulfill all the above requirements. This allows a steady, consistent and uninterrupted supply of quality lingzhi the whole year round.


Only by using high-technological production techniques can the effective components be properly produced. The stringent process adopted by Shuang Hor can be divided into 4 main steps:

(a) Coarse crushing. Dried ganoderma raw materials are crushed to powder of an appropriate size (not too big or too small), to expand the surface area to increase extraction rate and facilitate filtering in the latter process.

(b) Extraction. This is the core procedure whereby the Dual-Phase Extraction method is used to extract the 2 main components, namely triterpenoids (at a low temperature) and polysaccharide (at a high temperature). This 2 levels of extraction takes into account the ratio of solution volume to ganoderma weight, extraction temperature, time, stirring rates and many other factors.

(c) Concentration. The liquid ganoderma obtained from extraction is then concentrated before proceeding to the next step, drying. The production design must take into account factors such as temperature, degree of vacuum, time, recovery rate and solid content to retain the original molecular forms of active compounds.

(d) Drying. The most suitable drying method is the Vacuum Freeze-Dry method. The liquid concentrate is frozen to minus 30 degree celsius and the sublimatedvapour removed by high-vacuum pumps, leaving behind the ganoderma solid extract. Essentially, the ganoderma turns from liquid state into solid state in vacuum, then from solid state to powder, while at the same time keeping the special active ingredients of the ganoderma intact. The variables here include the exact freezing temperature, time, degree of vacuum, freezing space, freezing efficiency and refrigerant recovery. By this method, the ganoderma extracts (in powder form) are retrieved in the optimal way and in the shortest time possible.

Shuang Hor's Lingzhi has been certified with many government endorsements, including the Health Ministry of MalaysiaHealth Science Authority of Singapore and Japan Health Food Association. It has also been endorsed by the Health Ministry of Taiwan with accreditations in Immuno-Regulation and Liver Protection functions. Shuang Hor also complies with the Class A GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards and has received the ISO 9001:2008 certification.

For more details on the certifications, please refer to article Accreditation on Shuang Hor Lingzhi.

National Accreditation for Shuang Hor LingZhi

In assessing whether a Lingzhi (Ganoderma) is able to perform all the functions as claimed, it is crucial to look for third party or independent accreditation. Any company can make any sort of sensational claims on its own products. Are these claims substantiated and verified by any authority? If not, you should be able to form your opinion on the credibility of the products.

Shuang Hor's Lingzhi has received certifications and validations from many credible parties over the years. Among them are:

1. Japan, Singapore and Malaysia

Shuang Hor's lingzhi is endorsed by many government ministries. It is certified by the Health Ministry of Malaysia, for it to be distributed in Malaysia. Shuang Hor also has approval from the Health Sciences Authority of Singapore. One of the main functions of this organisation is to ensure that health products available in Singapore meet appropriate and acceptable standards in quality, safety and efficacy, which Shuang Hor's lingzhi does.

Shuang Hor's lingzhi has also received endorsement from the Japan Health Food Association. This is something Shuang Hor is proud of because it is not easy for a foreign health product to penetrate into the Japanese market. Japan is a country which is well known to have high quality lingzhi, which it calls reishi. So, for the Japanese Health Food Association to endorse a similar product coming from another country is evidence that the product has met certain standards, which Shuang Hor's lingzhi does.

2. Ministry of Health, Taiwan

Shuang Hor's lingzhi has also been endorsed by the Health Ministry of Taiwan. Taiwan is one of the few countries, apart from Japan and China, to have enacted a Health Food Control Act. It was enacted in 1999 to enhance the management and supervision of matters relating to health food, protect the health of the people and safeguard the rights and interests of consumers.

Shuang Hor's lingzhi has received two very stringent accreditations. The first is Immuno-Regulatory Health Food Accreditation. Based on the results of experiments carried out on animals and in vitro (outside the body) tests, it has the functions as below: 

  • Helps promote the production of antibodies
  • Helps enhance the production of immune cells
  • Helps modulate the functions of T-cells
  • Helps promote the vitality of natural killer cells
  • Helps promote the vitality of phagocytes.

The second accreditation is on Liver Function. Based on the results of animal tests, in which carbon tetrachloride was used to inflict damage on mouse liver, Shuang Hor's lingzhi has the functions as shown below: 
  • Helps reduce the indices of GOT and GPT. These are trans-aminase enzymes which are released by the liver if any of the liver cells die or are injured. If your GOT or GPT readings are high, that means that you have some form of injury or infection on your liver. Shuang Hor's lingzhi can repair those damaged cells.
  • Helps increase the protein content in the liver. This means Shuang Hor's lingzhi can help improve and increase the regenerating ability of your healthy liver cells.   
3. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)

GMP are practices and systems required to be adapted in pharmaceutical manufacturing. The ultimate goals are safeguarding the health of the patient as well as producing good quality medicine, medical devices or active pharmaceutical products. Complying with GMP is a mandatory aspect in pharmaceutical manufacturing. 

However, lingzhi is a food, not a pharmaceutical product. Nevertheless, Shuang Hor has subjected itself to this stringent practices and complied with the GMP requirements. Shuang Hor company's Yung Kien Factory in Taiwan won the first certificate of Food GMP in lingzhi, authorised by the Industrial Development Bureau of Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwan. And thus Shuang Hor became the world first professional lingzhi manufacturer with Food GMP recognition.

4. ISO 9001:2008

Shuang Hor is accredited with the ISO 9001, version 2008 certificate of approval, demonstrating the factory's production management system is able to ensure the highest efficacy and safety standards. ISO 9001:2008 specifies the requirements for a quality management system, where an organization:

  • needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements
  • aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

This is important to ensure that every bottle of lingzhi we purchase, from the first bottle to the 1,000th bottle to the next 1,000,000th bottle, are of stringent high quality.

The above-mentioned has certified Shuang Hor's Lingzhi - Yung Kien Ganoderma - to have received the accreditation for its Effectiveness and Food Safety.

Criste Marine: Vegetal Stem Cells that Retain a Youthful Skin and Delay Aging

Stem cells are biological cells that can divide into diverse specialized cell types and can self-renew to produce more stem cells. A newborn baby has some 250,000 stem cells in his body. As he grows older, the stem cells either dwindle in number or gradually lose their innate vitality. However, the dermal stem cells residing in the bottom layer of the epidermis of our skin are capable of continuously producing new dermal cells, hence are the key to maintaining youthful skin.

Protecting and preserving the vitality of our dermal stem cells is all-important in retarding premature aging of our skin. When in excellent condition, dermal stem cells are capable of enabling skin rejuvenation and repair. More so, they play a crucial role in the renewal of damaged skin barrier at the cellular level. In other words, dermal stem cells are the key to keeping our skin hydrated and restoring its youthful radiance.

Plant stem cells are reputed as being a revolutionary anti-ageing active ingredient. Extensive clinical experiments have pointed to the finding that Criste Marine Stem Cells have a rich cache of the "essense of youth" that delays aging. Plant stem cell is in the active state of a plant's life. It can provide endless energy and skin repair capacity.

Criste Marine thrives along the coastlines of France. Since this unique type of sea algae sustains itself by absorbing nutrients from sea mist and high waves, it has developed a robust life system. It spends 12 hours submerged in seawater and the other 12 hours on the stones under the hot scorching sun. Criste Marine only grows during the springtime and has to be manually harvested. Its scarcity and special attributes have earned itself the reputation of being "the most precious skin-care ingredient of the 21st Century".

With its stem cells reputed as being the most precious anti-ageing skin care ingredient of the century, it is capable of:

  • promoting regeneration of dermal cells at the basal layer
  • renewing damaged cells
  • improving skin elasticity and radiance
  • promoting speedy wound healing
  • reducing melanin (which causes freckles) formation
  • restoring normal metabolic functions of the dermal tissue

Thus, retaining the vitality deserved by a youthful skin frozen in time
