8 Signs it’s Time for a Detox

Filed Under: Detoxification and Cleansing,Supplements at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

New year, new life. One of the best ways to kick off 2015 in a healthy style is to do a body detox. If you still don’t have a good reason for a detox, here’s a list of 8 signs it’s time for a detox.

1. Remove Toxicity:

Removing toxins from your body is the main reason for a detox. We get toxins not only from processed foods and food additives but also from stress, chemicals and other environmental ways. A detox program can help removing the candida overgrowth from the intestinal tract and will cleanse the blood, lymph fluid and all major organs of toxic residue.

2. Energy Booster

Feeling constant fatigue, having no energy, and poor memory are good signs your body may need a detox. Getting rid of toxicity can help your body utilize energy towards repair and regeneration of damaged cells. By doing this, your body is able to recharge and rebalanced itself, resulting in more energy and vitality.

3. Improve Digestion

Removing toxins from your body can significantly help to improve digestion. Detox programs are known to help improving absorption of foods and nutrients, so you can actually get more vitamins and minerals from the food you eat.

4. Immune System Enhancer

A proper detox program can definitely help strengthening the immune system. Alkalizing the entire body plays a significant role on how your body reacts to adversity. With a stronger immune system, you are less likely to get sick and ore likely to prevent health problems.

5. De-Stress

Detox can be an excellent way to de-stress. Too much stress disrupts the production of three main hormones: serotonin, responsible for regulating your sleep, noradrenaline, related to your daily energy level, and dopamine, responsible for making you feel happiness and pleasure.

6. Prevent Disease and illness

Detoxing your body can help prevent disease and illness. With less toxins in your system, you should be able to enhance your physical health, restoring your internal environment which in combination with strengthening the immune system can certainly prevent the development of disease or illnesses.

7. Remove Parasites and Worms

Most parasites and worms are ingested from eating meat, raw fish, and contaminated soil or water. A good detoxification program will eliminate many harmful pathogens, bacteria, worms and parasites not only from the colon but also from other areas of the body.

8. Reduce Body Fat

Weight loss? Yes, a whole body detox is one of the best ways to eliminate excess body weight. An ideal detox protocol will help to eliminate toxins from the fat cells, flush the system of impurities and reduce cortisol levels, the hormone responsible for abdominal fat.

Spring Break Detox

Filed Under: Detoxification and Cleansing,General Wellness & Wellbeing,Supplements at 11:15 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

So you just got back from spring break. Maybe you relaxed on the beach, ate too much food, read a book, or had one too many alcoholic drinks. Now it’s time to get back to work, but you’re still feeling a little sluggish.  Consider helping your body to recover by doing a detox program. Detox programs are a great way to remove those toxins of spring break, clean out the liver, gain energy, and start feeling like your old self again.

The main organs of elimination are the skin, kidneys, liver, lungs, and colon. When these organs don’t function properly, it leads to a build up of toxins. Before discussing supplements to consider, I will talk about simple ways to improve the function of these organs.

  • Dry skin brushing for one minute a day has been found to improve the elimination of waste by stimulating the lymphatic system, exfoliating the skin, and increasing circulation. Before each shower, gently rub your dry skin with the dry sponge or dry skin brush. Start at your hands and work towards your chest. Then rub from your feet, up your legs, abdomen, and towards your heart. Don’t forget your back and buttocks. Shop Lucky Vitamin and purchase one of our dry skin brushes
  • Another at home method to promote the elimination of toxins is hydrotherapy. This simply means water therapy. By alternating hot and cold water in the shower, you can increase circulation throughout your entire body. Each morning perform three cycles of three minutes hot and 30 seconds cold ending the third cycle on cold just before getting out of the shower.
  •  Castor Oil applied topically in the form of “packs” is a popular way to aid in decreasing inflammation throughout the body, specifically in the abdominal area. It has also been used to improve the elimination of toxins and increase circulation in the lymphatic and circulatory systems as well.  You can check out my March blog on how to do a castor oil pack properly.

Lucky Vitamin has a wide selection of detoxifying and cleansing kits available to help you along the process. These kits contain multi-day supplement regimens that allow you to chose the length of your detox program.  If supplements aren’t the route you are looking to go, we also carry a selection of detox teas that can help get those nasty toxins out of your body.  Additionally, probiotics promote beneficial gut bacteria in your intestinal tract. They aid in regulating bowel movements, which are very important for the elimination of toxins, and have also been found to increase glutathione levels in the body. Glutathione is a potent antioxidant and works in the liver to protect the body from harmful substances as well as eliminate toxins.  This spring don’t let toxins keep you in the way of enjoying the nice weather and great outdoors.

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.

Resolution Time!

Filed Under: Detoxification and Cleansing,Diet & Weight Loss,Exercise and Fitness,Health Foods at 2:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Happy New Year! Many people are starting 2014 with a New Year’s resolution and Lucky Vitamin is helping you celebrate 2014. You can save an extra 10% off our most popular resolution categories.

The most common New Year’s resolutions include losing weight, eating healthy, getting in shape, reducing stress, starting a cleanse, getting healthier skin, quitting smoking, getting more sleep, and many others. Some people prefer to choose a more generic resolution such as “being healthy” rather than a specific one. But shouldn’t “being healthy” be a must for anyone starting a New Year’s resolution? Some people may have a point on this discussion as you do have to be healthy to start and, most importantly, succeed in any resolution you make it for the New Year.

While the term may have many different interpretations, most people just want to improve their lifestyle. Perhaps eating more fruits and vegetables and eating less fast food, drinking more water and less soda. Others may take the opportunity for a fresh new start changing from completely unhealthier habits to healthier ones such as quit smoking and start a new workout. Every beginning of the year is a great chance to make wellness resolutions that will keep you energized, fit, and beautiful, inside and out.

Overeating: Dealing and Treating

Filed Under: Detoxification and Cleansing,Supplements at 12:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

2013 is almost over. The end of the year offers many celebrations and parties and overeating hits a “high-risk” peak. The holidays present enough dinners and parties and, if that’s not enough, you may also have “end of the year” celebrations at work, school, or other groups.

Many people believe it’s OK to overeat at these parties and, in most cases, it is acceptable to eat a little more than you should, even for people on weight-loss programs or restricted diets. Nevertheless, you should be prepared for indigestion so you don’t feel so terrible the day after.

Digestive support supplements are one of the best ways to provide quick relief, minimize indigestion, and make your feel better after occasional overeating. Heartburn, irregularity, gas, bloating, constipation are often the result of inadequate enzymes and digestive support products can help regulating the digestive system and, consequently, stabilizing irregular bowel movement.

Digestive enzymes can help your body efficiently digest food, and alleviate occasional digestion-related discomforts. The majority of supplements contain fruit enzymes such as bromelain from pineapples and papain from papayas. Produced by our pancreas and delivered to small intestine where they digest our foods, pancreatic enzymes such as protease, amylase and lipase, are the body’s most powerful food digestants, and can effectively break down protein, fat and starch.

When you eat, you are using up your natural supply of digestive enzymes. As you age, digestion becomes more difficult for your body as people have lower quantities of natural digestive enzymes. Digestive support products may help to regulate this balance and promote healthy digestion even at times overeating can become an issue.

UdosEnzymesBOGO

For a limited time LuckyVitamin.com  is offering Buy One Get One on Udo’s Choice Digestive Food Enzyme Blends. Add some good flora to your digestive tract with Adult Enzyme and Advanced Adult Enzyme Blends. Supp

lementing with Udo’s Choice food enzymes will promote proper digestion, support immune function and provide you with more energy throughout the day.

These supplements are designed to replace the enzymes in food lost in the cooking process or due to inadequate nutrition.  The lack of food enzymes in the modern diet results in the pancreas becoming overworked, leading to the uncomfortable effects of indigestion.

The Adult Enzyme Blend is recommended for people ages 19-65 and assists with immune function and digestion while providing you with energy. Designed specifically to support digestion in adults who choose to follow any type of restrictive diet (e.g. high-protein or carbohydrate reduced lifestyle, vegan, raw foods etc.). It is also recommended for those who consume a diet consisting of highly processed foods (high in protein, carbohydrates and processed foods.) This blend contains 4 different proteolytic food enzymes to maintain a wide and stable pH range for a healthy GI tract.

Advanced Adult Enzyme Blend is recommended for seniors and adults with food sensitivities. Due to digestive distress and discomfort after eating, much of the elderly population does not consume enough vegetables, protein or healthy fats. This unbalanced diet can lead to a lack of vital nutrients, muscle weakness, fatigue, loss of bone mass and overall degeneration. The Advanced Adult enzyme blend provides a full spectrum of 5 different proteolytic food enzymes.  It supports the digestion of fats, proteins, fiber and carbohydrate as well as maximizes the absorption of nutrients from food including calcium.

Udo’s  Choice Enzyme Blends can help you gain back those essential food enzymes and  bring relief to those who suffer from indigestion, IBS, GAS, acid reflux and bloating.  Since 1965, Flora has preserved his original dedication to perfect and make available herbal remedies that ensure maximum purity, quality and potency with a holistic approach to health.

Detoxing Can Change Your Life

Filed Under: Detoxification and Cleansing at 6:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Detoxing is one of the most popular words in the month of January. Many people take the start of a new year as an opportunity to do a whole body cleansing to increase the efficiency of the digestive system and to stimulate the other parts of the body that are responsible for cleansing and elimination.

In fact, a detox program is so important what it should be done at least twice a year. Just remember how many impurities and toxins we get daily, in the food we eat and the air we breathe. A toxin is any substance that causes irritating or harmful effects in your body and this daily exposure to pollution starts to add up, leading to a buildup of harmful free radicals within us, which may result in damage to our bodies.

A whole body cleansing is one of the best ways to help rid the body of toxins. Foods rich in antioxidants have been found to neutralize toxins and free radicals by seeking them out and deactivating them. The main antioxidant nutrients are vitamins A, C, and E. Super Fruits are also believed to contain high concentrations of anti-oxidants.

In addition, a detox program is highly recommended if you are starting a weight-loss diet to ensure your body can works at its best in all functions, from getting the most out of your nutrition to revving up your metabolism. Detoxing will improve your appearance, regulate your sleep patterns, increase your vitality, enhance your underlying health, and boost your emotional well-being.

Lucky Vitamin Presents: Rescue Detox

Filed Under: Detoxification and Cleansing at 10:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Whole body cleansing programs are one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions. Many people believe that a new year is a great opportunity for a fresh start, a new life, or perhaps a healthier lifestyle. So, nothing is more suitable than a detox program to get rid of the toxins in the body, and Lucky Vitamin has just added another premium brand of cleansing products: Rescue Detox.

Rescue Detox offers the next generation of detoxification products.

All cleansing products have antioxidant-rich super fruits, critical in aiding the body’s natural process of neutralizing and eliminating free radicals and, more importantly, have stronger formulas to ensure your body is covered in the fight against toxic buildup.

Most regular detoxification products are loaded with artificial flavors, artificial colors, and artificial sweeteners. You won’t find any of that rubbish inside Rescue Detox products because no artificial ingredients are ever used. Instead, Rescue Detox uses actual anti-oxidant rich super fruits such as açaí berry, blueberry, cranberry, goji berry, green tea, pomegranate, and mangosteen.

Additionally, Rescue Detox uses no synthetic industrial dyes, using only hibiscus flower and beet root to naturally color all products.

Detox With Zeolite

Filed Under: Detoxification and Cleansing at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Zeolite supplements have become one of the most searched products at Lucky Vitamin. If you are looking for more information about zeolite, Lucky Blog is your source for a quick overview of this incredible mineral.

Zeolite is a breakthrough supplement used for detoxification and cleansing of the human body. The term zeolite was originally coined in 1756 by Swedish mineralogist Axel Fredrik Cronstedt. It works at the cellular level by trapping heavy metals and toxins and safely removing them from the body.

Zeolite effectively eliminates toxic heavy metals (such as lead, mercury, and aluminum), neurotoxins and free radicals from the body through the urinary tract, without removing vital nutrients.

The zeolites are a rare group of minerals with negative magnetic charge. The effect of the magnetic charge is that zeolite draws heavy metals (including mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, aluminum, and even radioactive metals like cesium and strontium-90) and toxins to it and simply engulfs them. Then, zeolite carries them safely and harmlessly out of the body through normal digestion.

Heavy metals are implicated as a causative factor in many illnesses. Linus Pauling, winner of two Nobel Prizes, believed that 90% of all medical conditions are attributable to excessive heavy metals, toxins, toxic chemicals, and trace mineral deficiency.

The benefits from zeolite supplements are far better than just detoxifying the body by removing heavy metals and toxins. It helps rematerialize the body, prevents pre-mature aging, supports immune system function, reduce cancer risk, reduces symptoms of allergies, helps balance pH, boosts energy levels, increases vitamin and mineral absorption, and may lower the risk of acid reflux.

Zeolite has been studied extensively by scientists in countries around the world and these non-toxic minerals are federally classified as GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe).

The Power of Bentonite Clay

Filed Under: Detoxification and Cleansing at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Bentonite clay has been used to treat several different conditions for hundreds of years. Native Americans and ancient African tribes have used clay as a natural remedy to heal wounds, treat rashes and insect bites, heal stomach pain, relieve ulcers, and heal fatigue.

Bentonite clay comes from deposits of volcanic ash that has settled over thousands of years. As the ash settles through the earth, it absorbs different nutrients from the earth. It is the absorption process that makes clay such a beneficial detoxification in the body, absorbing toxins and carrying them through the system. Bentonite clay products often contain magnesium and over sixty other trace minerals.

This powerful product can be used both internally and externally. Bentonite is commonly used to detoxify the body as its ability to swell and absorb toxins from the body may relieve symptoms associated with toxin build up.

Drinking clay mixed with water is used as a detoxifier and an internal body cleanser. Toxins come from many sources such greasy foods and environmental sources and, overtime, toxins can build up and inhibit the body’s natural functions contributing to issues such as digestive problems, headaches and allergies.

Externally, bentonite clay can be used to treat muscle damage, bruises, cuts and wounds. You can prepare a bentonite clay pack by mixing the clay with water until it has a mud like consistency and apply it to the affected skin area. Other skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and rashes often respond well to bentonite clay treatments. Many personal care products contain bentonite clay as an ingredient, particularly facial products.
