We’re Wild About Wiley’s Finest

Filed Under: Announcements & News,Health Concerns & Ailments,Supplements at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For three generations, the Wiley family has focused on finding natural solutions for food ingredients. Their family wholeheartedly believes in the benefits of Omega-3 and they’re passionate about spreading the message of good health through Omega-3’s EPA & DHA generated from fish oils.

When it comes to Wiley’s Finest, you know you’re getting a world-class Omega-3 product. Each and every product that they make carries the Wiley Family signature to ensure that it comes from a responsible, sustainable, wild Alaskan fish source and provides the effective nutrition that your body needs.

EPA & DHA PROVIDES HEALTH BENEFITS AT EVERY STAGE OF LIFE

Omega-3s are healthy fats, that is, fats that support better health. Because our bodies cannot produce them, we need to consume omega-3s in our diet or from supplements.

  • They help normalize our blood pressure, ease our response to stress, pump our blood from head to toe, and reduce inflammation.
  • They improve our mood, help our brains work, and keep our central vision clearer as we age (DHA is a critical part of brain and eye tissue).
  • They strengthen our immune and muscular systems; they help keep our knees, hips, and shoulder joints rotating and moving.
  • Infants require them for normal and healthy development and new mothers need to replenish their supply.

 

PURE, HIGH-QUALITY OMEGA-3 PRODUCTS

Wiley’s uses molecular distillation and carbon treatment to remove environmental contaminants from their products. Every single lot of their fish oil ingredients and finished soft gel products are certified by the NSF International Public Health & Safety Company™ to ensure the product meets the dose claims on their labels and is free from environmental contaminants like heavy metal content (lead, cadmium, mercury, and arsenic).

This month, you can save an extra 10% off Wiley’s Finest by using promo code ‘APR14NEW10’ at checkout.

Lose Weight the Natural Way with Garcinia Cambogia

Filed Under: Announcements & News,Diet & Weight Loss,Herbs at 1:38 pm | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Garcinia Cambogia, or tamarind, is a small, green, pumpkin-shaped fruit that is used in many traditional Asian dishes for its sour flavor. Tamarind has also been used as a digestive aid in certain ayurvedic medicinal treatments. The skin of the fruit contains the “magic” weight loss ingredient that is advocated by celeb health guru, Dr. Oz.

How It Works

The hydroxycitric acid (HCA) extract from Garcinia Cambogia blocks fat by inhibiting an enzyme called ATP-citrate lyase. This enzyme helps convert excess carbohydrates (sugars) into fats. When HCA inhibits citrate lyase the fat-making process is halted, and the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides decrease. Simply put, Garcinia Cambogia “flips the switch” on one of your body’s primary fat-burners.

Effectiveness

There is conflicting evidence in the effectiveness of Garcinia Cambogia. Studies in rats show that the active ingredient in Garcinia Cambogia can inhibit a fat-producing enzyme – the aforementioned Citrate Lyase — and increase serotonin levels, which lead to significant weight loss.  Another study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association was less enthusiastic about Garcinia Cambogia’s fat-shedding capabilities. Results of the study revealed no significant weight loss and fat mass loss beyond that observed with placebo. However, it should be noted that this study was administered with a high-fiber diet rather than a carb-rich diet, which some believe may have influenced its results.

What To Look For

If used short-term, Garcinia Cambogia is considered to be generally safe and features no adverse side effects. Long-term effects, however, remain unknown. When buying Garcinia Cambogia it is best to purchase a brand with at least 50% Hydroxycitric acid. The most common dosage is 500 mg, three times per day, 30 minutes prior to a meal. Remember to consult your doctor before adding any herbal supplement to your regimen, especially if you are currently taking prescribed medication. Garcinia Cambogia is not to be used by people with diabetes’s, Alzheimer’, or dementia, or by women currently pregnant or lactating.

Drinking Green Tea May Protect Your Health

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Teas at 12:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

A simple beverage switch may provide a ton of health benefits. For example, changing from coffee or black tea to green tea offers more benefits than you may know.

A recent Japanese study carried out over 11 years and involving more than 40,000 men and women aged 40 to 79 found that people drinking four cups of green tea a day suffered with less heart disease than people who didn’t drink tea. In fact, heart disease was reduced by 31 per cent in women and 22 per cent in men. Additionally, levels of psychological stress were 20 per cent lower in people who drank at least five cups of green tea daily.

Green tea has been known to be a healthier alternative to other beverages with numerous health-boosting properties. Drinking green tea helps reduce your bad (LDL) cholesterol levels and helps prevent the build-up of fatty plaque on your artery walls that can cause heart attacks. Studies have shown that drinking green tea can be helpful to treat headaches and joint pain.

Green tea is generally less processed and contains more simple flavonoids than black tea. These flavonoids protect your body from free radicals that can damage your body’s cells. Leaves used to make black tea are fully oxidized, whilst those for green tea or white tea are lightly steamed, which helps to preserve important vitamins and minerals.

In addition, green tea can be an excellent energy booster as it may improve your concentration, short-term memory, and reduce tiredness levels. Drinking several cups of green tea a day is a great way to replenish your body’s fluid levels as green tea contains health enhancing flavonoids, vitamins B1, B2, B6, folic acid, zinc, manganese and potassium.

Improve Your Sleep with Valerian

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Herbs,Supplements at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

A recent study shows that nearly 60% of Americans say that they experience a sleep problem every night. The most common issues reported were difficulty falling asleep, waking up one or more times during the course of the night, and not getting enough sleep on a regular basis.

Sleep aids supplements have been helping people for years and some of the most popular products may help improve overall sleep. For example, valerian supplements have shown the ability to improve the quality of sleep as well reduced the average time to fall asleep.

Valerian root (Valeriana officinalis) is an herb that has been used as a sleeping aid for more than 1,000 years. Studies have concluded that valerian root supplements may work just as well as a prescription sleeping pill for insomnia. Researchers think that valerian works due to a combination of compounds. The herb seems to have a calming effect on the central nervous system.

Valerian is available in a variety of different forms: tablets, capsules, liquid extracts, and teas. Herbal experts recommend drinking valerian tea at bedtime to help you drop off to sleep. Valerian supplements may vary in potency and most products are considered generally safe when used as directed. Occasionally it might cause headache, insomnia or vivid dreams. Valerian has been used safely in human studies for up to 28 days but as with other sleeping pills, its effectiveness may wear off over time. Avoid valerian when operating dangerous machinery or during pregnancy. Talk with your doctor before start taking valerian.

How To Choose An Omega-3 Fish Oil

Filed Under: Announcements & News,General Wellness & Wellbeing,Supplements at 11:25 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BENEFITS TO CONSIDER - Taking fish oil has numerous benefits and plays an important role in health. That’s because the omega-3 in fish is high in two essential fatty acids crucial to our health: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA.)

EPA is the most beneficial oil and is good for your joints, skin and heart. It can lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, decrease your risk for cardiovascular disease, and can even aid in fighting off allergies. Ours brains are highly dependent on DHA and is needed for neuronal and cognitive development in children. It has also been associated with maintaining positive moods and helping depression.

HOW TO READ THE LABEL – When it comes to reading your fish oil label, it is important that you look at the dosage of EPA compared to DHA. Many supplements vary in the ratio of EPA and DHA that they contain. It is best to buy supplements which list the actual dosage of both EPA and DHA. Since EPA is more beneficial, you want a supplement that contains more EPA than DHA.

POTENCY CONSIDERATIONS - The recommended dosage of fish oil can vary. For healthy adults, a combined daily total of 500 milligrams (mg) EPA + DHA is recommended. Once you buy your fish oil supplement, check the label carefully to see if it recommends refrigeration to prevent spoiling. In most cases, you will want to store your fish oil in the refrigerator after opening to help ensure freshness.

NOT ALL FISH OILS ARE CREATED EQUAL - When shopping for fish oil, purity is key. Supplements should be free from rancidity, PCB’s, mercury, dioxin and other chemicals. To minimize contaminants in an unrefined supplement, it’s best to find a fish oil made from small oily fish like anchovy, sardines or mackerel.

Other things to look for:

  • Oil was extracted using cold press techinique
  • Supplement was molecularly distilled
  • Wild-caught & not farm-raised fish
  • Companies that follow Good Manufacturing Practices

Constipation

Filed Under: Detoxification and Cleansing,Health Concerns & Ailments at 8:00 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Constipation can be an awkward topic to talk about, yet it is one of the most common gastrointestinal complaints in the United States.  Each year it leads to 2.5 million doctor visits. It is characterized by fewer than three bowel movements per week, straining, hard stools, and the feeling of incomplete evacuation. Many causes of constipation have been speculated, some of which include:  neurological disorders, endocrine disorders, use of certain medications, food allergens, and insufficient intake of fiber and liquids. Let’s look at some dietary and supplemental changes you can make to aid constipation.

Fiber acts as a bulking agent by increasing water in the stool and making it easier for the stool to pass. Numerous studies have shown that increasing dietary fiber into your diet with foods such as whole grains, bran, fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts can improve constipation. Taking a psyllium seed husk supplement is another great way of boosting your fiber intake.

Flaxseed oil and flaxseed meal are two other first line treatments for people suffering from constipation. A study done on healthy young adults taking flaxseed oil found that bowel movements increased by 30% per week while consuming the oil.   It is important to note that flaxseed and psyllium seed husk aren’t the only supplements you can take; probiotics, magnesium, and vitamin C have also been found to relieve constipation. Probiotics have been thoroughly researched throughout the years for their effect on constipation.  The majority of evidence has indicated that many probiotic strains are effective for constipation; however, more research is needed to determine the best strains. When taken in large doses, other supplements like magnesium and vitamin C have a laxative-like effect.  You should not take large doses of magnesium and vitamin C for extended amounts of time. If your constipation continues, be sure to speak with your health care provider.

The Amazing Benefits of Lemon Balm

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Herbs at 8:00 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What if I told you there was an herb that can help with hyperthyroidism, anxiety, depression, insomnia, ADHD, IBS, and other GI complaints related to nervous origin, while at the same time contains anti-viral properties against herpes? You would want to know what this herb was, correct? The herb is Melissa officnalis, or more commonly known as lemon balm. Lemon balm is a member of the Lamiaceae (mint) family and is native to the center-southern region of Europe. It has been used medicinally for years.

There have been many studies on the positive effects lemon balm can have on overall health. One study looked at its effect on herpes. Researchers found that lemon balm extract shortened the healing time, aided in the prevention of spreading, and also helped with the tingling, burning, itching, swelling, and redness commonly associated with the infection. In another study, scientists found that it inhibited the replication of the herpes simplex virus.  In vitro studies conducted on lemon balm and Grave’s Disease have shown that lemon balm blocks the attachment of the antibodies that cause Grave’s disease. One final study found that insulin resistant high fat diet fed mice given lemon balm had reduced hyperglycemia (blood sugar), insulin resistance, and LDL/VLDL cholesterol levels after 6 weeks.

Another benefit of lemon balm is the calming effect it can have. The ability to increase relaxation makes it effective in the treatment of ADHD and anxiety.  Studies have shown that  lemon balm increases GABA (inhibitory neurotransmitter) in synapses (decreased levels of GABA have been associated with anxiety). There are many uses for lemon balm and Lucky Vitamin is proud to carry a variety of extracts, supplements, essential oils, and more.

Rotating Running Shoes May Prevent Injuries

Filed Under: Exercise and Fitness,Health Concerns & Ailments at 2:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

The results of an interesting study show that switching between different pairs of shoes may help prevent running-related injuries. Published in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports, the study of 264 recreational runners found that those who used multiple pairs of running shoes over a 22-week observation period had a significantly lower risk of running-related injury than those who used only one pair.

During the study, researchers from the Public Research Centre for Health in Luxembourg recorded information about the runners such as running shoe use and running-related injuries on an internet-based electronic database. Multiple shoe users were defined as those who reported at least two different pairs of running shoes, different brand, model, or version, in the system and who alternated between them at least two times during the observation period. Multiple shoe users wore their predominant pair of shoes for an average of only 58% of their running sessions.

Runners in the multiple-shoe group had a 39% lower rate of running-related injury than runners who predominantly used only one pair of shoes, and had a hazard ratio of .614. Increased mean session distance (hazard ratio .795) and increased weekly participation in sports other than running (hazard ratio .848) were also found to be protective against running-related injury, while history of previous injury was a risk factor (hazard ratio 1.722).

The study authors believe that alternating running shoes may reduce injury risk by providing variation in the type of physical load applied to the body but alert that other factors may have to be considered.

Spring Cleaning

Filed Under: Environment,Natural Cleaning Aids at 1:41 pm | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every April, we start the age-old process of spring cleaning our houses.  Some of us may go into our sheds and other storage sites to take out our patio furniture. The decks need wiping and the grills need scrubbing, but have you ever considered what all the chemicals in your cleaning products can do to your health? The chemicals in these cleaning products damage our skin, cause headaches, lead to irritation of our eyes and airways, and if ingested/inhaled can even lead to death.  Take for instance, the warning on a Glade Air Freshener: “Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents can be harmful or fatal.” Yikes! Let’s take a look at some of the common chemicals found in these and other similar cleaning products.

Products such as aerosol sprays, cleansers, air-fresheners, and disinfectants emit what are called volatile organic compounds. VOC’s are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors. These compounds have been found to have numerous amounts of health effects ranging from eye, nose, and throat irritation to even cancer. Petroleum distillate is a common chemical that you might find in your cleaning products. This hydrocarbon is found in certain furniture polishes, paint solvents, adhesives, and automotive chemicals.  One other chemical you should be wary of is phthalates. They are used to stabilize synthetic perfumes, so if a cleaning product says “fragrance” it most likely contains phthalates.

There are many other chemicals found in your household cleaning products than what has been listed here. It is important to read the labels and research whether or not the company is truly using “natural” ingredients. The government only requires companies to list “chemicals of known concern” on their labels. In 2012, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) released their cleaning products hall of shame list which revealed the household cleaning products that are the most dangerous and should be avoided.

Lucky Vitamin is proud to carry various brands of cleaning products that are free of volatile organic compounds, phthalates, petroleum distillate, and other potentially harmful and deadly chemicals. For example, a safer alternative to air fresheners are products such as Aura Cacia aromatherapy mist which only contains water and various essential oils. Also, shop Mrs. Meyers non-aerosol room freshners. This spring time don’t let the fear of what’s in your cleaning aids stop you from making your house sparkle like it should.
