Why trust us?

Internet today is full of websites with information on all aspects, including health.

The major problem with health websites can be if they can be trusted with the information they are providing? We believe, most of them cannot be. Then why you should trust us? There are three Qualities we believe which differentiate us from others –

1. Focus on scientific research methodology – Scientific research is the cornerstone of our portal. Our articles are written by researching, identifying and then explaining reputed research papers in simple language. Our articles on an average have 20-25 research references (this is like writing a mini-research paper in itself) and all of them are available as hyperlinks (light brown color) at places where their information is used.

2. Team with technical expertise It is very important to understand and explain the difficult language of scientific papers and more importantly – correctly. Thus, our team consists of writers with high technical expertise.

Our writers have one or more of these educational degrees:

  • PhDs
  • MSc
  • Btech
  • Mtech

Many of them have been teaching or working incorporates.

Given our work is very specific, we are specific about the streams we hire  –

  • Biotechnology
  • Nutrition
  • Ayurveda
  • Pharmacy

Every writer is subjected to a test before included in the team. Further, detailed research and writing guidelines are provided to each before they start their work.

3. Interactive and transparent approach – We have over 40,000 newsletter subscribers, 82,000+ FB followers and 10,000+ comments on the website. The reason for this is that we try answering as many reader queries as we can and help them. Whenever we feel we do not know the solution or cannot help, we are very open to accepting it.

We also own and run other websites in the health domain including one on CBD

  1. Hi,

    Does heating destroy the benefits of turmeric?

    I usually make a turmeric ‘tea’ that has 1 tsp of turmeric powder and some black pepper, placed in a mug of hot water.

  2. Hello Keshav, Thank you for such a wonderful resource site, this “Polish-heritage” cook uses quite a bit of turmeric in recipes these days! What I would like to do is actually grow some that I can use fresh but have had no luck trying to start the “fresh” turmeric found at out health store. Do you have any reliable sources (in the USA) for rooting stock? Thanks again.
