Amazing Body Oils

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Personal Care at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

One of the best ways to keep your skin properly moisturized is to use body oils regularly. Not as popular as body lotions, body oils are an excellent alternative and offer additional benefits to keep your skin moisturized while relaxing your mind and improving your body’s overall health.

Body oils are smooth, thick and highly concentrated liquids that are usually clear in color and enhance the appearance and quality of skin. The best body oils are organic, free of chemicals and extracted from roots, fruits, flowers and leaves. Some people avoid using body oil because they believe oil and skin don’t mix, often leaving the body greasy. In fact, body oils actually enhance the quality of your skin because they soak quickly and deeply into skin to leave it moisturized for longer periods of time.

Massaging your skin with body oils may help to improve your overall health by reducing aches and pains and decreasing stress. Some body oils contain special blends of ingredients designed to target specific areas of your body. For example, some oils help to relieve upset stomachs while others improve circulation, alleviate pain in sore muscles and relieve stiff joints. Many of the benefits of body oils relate to their use in massage therapy. Body oils make it easier to rub and massage skin, causing less friction and discomfort when a masseuse manipulates your body tissue.

Additionally, body oils are perfect for Swedish massage techniques to calm the nervous system and increase nutritive circulation in the skin. In addition to helping alleviate everyday aches and pains, studies have shown that massage lessens stiffness and increases the function of joints for those suffering from osteoarthritis.

Lastly, body oils are more economical than lotions. This might seem contradictory because the best body oils are more expensive than lotions, but remember that a little body oil goes a long way and you used much less than lotion for each session, saving some money on the long run. You only need to use a little bit of oil to cover a lot of skin and moisturize skin effectively. While it might take several pumps of body lotion to quench your skin’s thirst, a tiny dollop of body oil will be sufficient in covering most of your body.

What’s Your Dosha?

Filed Under: Announcements & News,General Wellness & Wellbeing,Herbs at 2:22 pm | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

The ancient Hindu practice of Ayurvedic medicine believes that everything in the universe is made up of five elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether (space.) These elements combine to form the three doshas, or metabolic types, that are represented in the human body in several different forms. For instance, bones and teeth are associated with earth, blood and lymph with water, metabolism with fire, oxygen with air, and ether with the spaces found between matter, which are often represented by vibration or sound.

So, what’s your dosha? Read on to find out!

Vata

People who exhibit the physical characteristics of a vata are either very tall or very short with a slight physique. Thin is in as far as vatas go, as they often have thin skin, hair, mouths and necks. A classic vata face is usually long and angular, often with an underdeveloped chin, pale eyes and a small, narrow nose. A vata’s teeth are irregular or protruding, set in receding gums. And while the voice is weak, low or cracked, vatas tend to be motormouths, with extremely fast speech patterns. Vatas have restless minds, tend to overanalyze and have weak memories. They are what most of us think of when we hear the phrase “the sensitive type” and are likely to be artistic, creative and susceptible to many forms of overindulgence.

Pitta:

Pittas are more of the fiery type. They can be loud, authoritative and convincing debaters. Physically they have soft, warm skin that sweats easily and tends to burn in the sun. Reddish hair that prematurely grays is another hallmark of the pitta, who also possesses a heart-shaped face, a pointed chin and nose and yellowish teeth. Pittas have are classic intellectuals and boast great organizational skills. Most pittas are fast learners and have excellent memories. And it’s precisely because of those selectively excellent memories that you never want to cross one. Pittas can be quick to anger, argumentative and are jealous and aggressive by nature.

Kapha:

The prototypical strapping kapha has a thick, broad frame and large limbs that pairs nicely with a deep, resonant voice. A kapha’s skin is usually oily and pale, but they make up for that with shocks of dark, wavy hair and a full face. Kapha’s can be easily recognized by their tree trunk-like neck, rounded nose, light eyes, large mouth and huge teeth. Kaphas are often calm, logical and considerate. Stable and patient, they are slow to anger and often calm down quickly on the rare occasions when they do let their emotions get the better of them. More passive by nature, kaphas can come off as lazy and ummotivated – even dull — to those who don’t know them. But don’t let their easygoing disposition fool you, kaphas have a naturally strong sex drive.

5 Basics Any Yogi Should Know

Filed Under: Exercise and Fitness,General Wellness & Wellbeing at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

5 Basics Any Yogi Should Know

Yoga is the union of body and mind. Whether you do it for improved flexibility or spirituality, here’s a few essentials you need to know before you step foot on the mat

1. Why we “Om” – “Om”, pronounced “A-U-M,” is the alpha and the omega. Everything and nothing. It’s the sound of the universe. When we “om” together, we become one with the universe.

2. Show respect with “Namaste” – Namaste (pronounced “Naa-Maa-Stay”,) can have many variations in translation.  “The soul in me honors the soul in you.” Traditionally, Namaste is an ancient Sanskrit greeting used in India but is also invoked at the end of a class to show gratitude.

3. Downward dog has nothing to do with your pet – Adho Mukha Svanasana is sometimes referred to as the mother of all poses in yoga. During this asana remember to spread the fingers wide and roll the shoulder blades back but don’t hyperextend the spine. Find your place in the pose and enjoy the benefits, which include decreased back pain, less tension, fewer headaches, lessened anxiety and improved circulation. Now, athletes and novices alike can get down with that!

4. Is it time for Savasana yet? – Also known as everybody’s favorite pose, it’s that time at the end of a class when you lie on your back and just let go. It serves multiple purposes for the physical, spiritual and philosophical self. Comfort is key during this pose. Feel free to ask your teacher for accessories like a blanket or bolster before you dive deep into relaxation.

5. Yoga is not for the flexible. It’s for the willing – Do not look over to your neighbor’s mat in envy of their eight-angle pose. Yoga is not about being bendy. It’s a reminder that all things take time and easing into. It forces us to be okay with the unknown and allows us to quiet the mind and just be.

Cashews: Healthy, Delicious Snacks

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Health Foods at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

One of the best ways to feel good about snacking is when you find out that your favorite snack offers multiple health benefits. So, if you like cashews, we have good news for you.

A recent study shows that regular consumption of cashews can be beneficial for healthy muscles and nerves as it contains good levels of magnesium, a vital mineral for the healthy development of bones, muscles, tissues, and organs of the body. Magnesium is known to maintain proper nerve function and keep the bones strong. A deficiency of magnesium alters the metabolism of calcium and the hormones responsible for its regulation.

Considered a “super nut”, cashews are very nutritious and a powerhouse of proteins and essential minerals including copper, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. Cashews also contains vitamins such as C, B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B-6, folate, E (alpha-tocopherol) and vitamin K (phylloquinone). These tropical nuts are a source of oleic acid and provide a good quantity of monounsaturated fat and low amounts of polyunsaturated fats with no harmful cholesterol, if consumed appropriately. Additionally, cashews are a good source of healthy dietary fats, which are essential for our body to absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K and produce fatty acids that are vital for the development of the brain and blood clotting.

Additional health benefits of cashews include a healthy heart and relief from diabetes. By offering antioxidant defenses, these delicious nuts also aid in the formation of red blood cells. Cashews provide phosphorous, which is essential for the healthy development of teeth and bones. Lastly, cashews may help prevent anemia as they are a good source of iron which is vital for carrying oxygen around the body and aids in the functioning of enzymes and the immune system.

Stop the Stink Naturally

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Personal Care at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

If you’re reading this blog, you’ve probably heard about how the deodorants commonly found at your local grocery store are filled with nasty stuff that can cause Alzheimers’s, birth defects and multiple types of cancers. Before you make your next purchase, be sure to check out the label and try to avoid the following ingredients:

The main ingredient in antiperspirants is aluminum. This metal helps prevent sweat from leaving your pores and has been linked to breast cancer in women and Alzheimer’s in men. Another toxic component is propylene glycol – a petroleum-based product that easily penetrates the skins and acts as a wetting agent. It can cause cancer and contains toxins that disrupt reproductive function.

Other chemicals to watch out for include Parabens, Phthalates, Triclosan, Diproplyene Glycol, 1 PEG-14 Dimethicone, PEG/PPG – 18/18 Dimethicone and PEG-8 Distearate. I know this may seem confusing (unless you’re a chemist) but when in doubt check out Environmental Working Group’s  site for a list of natural deodorant brands that are safe to use.

Before you make the switch to the au naturale route there are a few things you should know. For the first 7-14 days your body will go through an adjustment period – ie, you might stink during this time. But have no fear; your body is merely detoxing years of accumulated toxins that have burrowed themselves in your underarm areas. During this time it’s best to wear loose, breathable fabrics to prevent your perspiration from sticking to your body. Also, try to reduce your intake of red meat. Recent studies revealed those who have a higher consumption of red meat have an increased likelihood of sweating. Also, try to stay away from processed foods, opting instead for a more plant-based, whole foods diet. While showering, rub a sugar scrub on your armpits to exfoliate the top layer of skin and speed up the detox period.

Remember, everyone’s body is different and what works for you may not work for somebody else. Keep trying different brands and feel good about your decision to stop the stink naturally!

The Always Important Potassium

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Vitamins and Minerals at 1:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Minerals are very important for our health. Some are called essential minerals for a good reason as the human body depends on them for a variety of functions. When listing the essential ones, potassium is certainly on the top of the list.

Potassium is a very important mineral for the human to work properly. It is a type of systemic electrolyte and is essential in coregulating ATP with sodium, an important process for maintaining good health. Your body needs potassium to build proteins and muscle as well as break down and utilize carbohydrates. Additionally, potassium controls the electrical activity of the heart and the acid-base balance of your body.

Many foods contain potassium including all meats, such as red meat and chicken, and fish such as salmon, cod, flounder, and sardines. Vegetarian sources include bananas, broccoli, spinach, legumes, potatoes, tomatoes, papayas, and lentils. Other fruits that contain significant amount of potassium include citrus fruits, cantaloupe, kiwi, prunes, and apricots. Milk and yogurt, as well as nuts, are also excellent sources of potassium.

The Food and Nutrition Center of the Institute of Medicine has established a recommended dietary intake for potassium of 4.7 g/day for adults. Women who are producing breast milk need slightly higher amounts (5.1 g/day). Check with your health care provider to develop a supplementation plan based on your specific needs.

Potassium supplements are an excellent way to ensure you are getting your daily recommended amount. Products are available in tablets, capsules, powder, and liquid form, so you can choose the best way to fit your needs of the always important potassium.

Eat Your Greens

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Nutrition,Vitamins and Minerals at 8:00 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

Greens are the talk of the town right now. Adding one of the healthiest foods to your diet can improve overall health and well-being. Let’s face it though, not all greens are the same.  Today we are going to look at some of the nutrients and health benefits we can receive by adding greens into our diets.

First off, we’ll talk about one of the trendiest greens right now, kale. Kale is the nutrition All-Star: the “LeBron James” of greens.  Kale is low in calories, high in fiber and contains zero fat. One cup of kale has only 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat. It contains vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, potassium, vitamins A, C, and K. Kale is also a great anti-inflammatory food because it contains 10% of the RDA of omega-3 fatty acids.

The next green everyone is aware of is mostly because of the gigantic muscles and amplified strength it gave to Popeye. But there are a lot more health benefits to consider when it comes to spinach.  Spinach is full of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.  Spinach is packed with vitamins A, C, K, folate, iron, magnesium and much more. Spinach is a good source of dietary fiber and proteins. The folate in spinach is good for a healthy cardiovascular system, while the magnesium helps lower high blood pressure.

One green that not many people are aware of, but is a nutrition powerhouse is collard greens.  This cruciferous vegetable, used commonly in southern cooking, has one of the greatest abilities to lower cholesterol by binding bile acids.  Collard greens are a good vegetable to add to your diet if you want to improve detoxification, increase antioxidants, fight against cancer and lower inflammation. Besides the previous health benefits mentioned, collard greens are also high in vitamins K, A, C, B2, B6 as well as manganese, fiber and calcium.

Fresh vegetables are the best source of nutrients; however, a great way to make sure that you are getting all your daily servings of greens is by adding in greens formulas to you daily routine. Green Formulas are a good option to keep on hand when fresh isn’t available or when traveling. They are also great for people on the go with work and active lifestyles. Lucky Vitamin is proud to carry a wide variety of certified organic green formulas.

5 Chemical Free Alternatives to Sunscreen

Filed Under: Environment,General Wellness & Wellbeing,Personal Care at 1:03 pm | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

Whether you’re at the beach or just hanging out in your backyard, it’s important to protect yourself and your family from the sun’s damaging rays. Unfortunately, any old sunscreen won’t do. Most commercial sunscreens contain a wide variety of toxic ingredients and have the potential to do more harm than good. Recent reports have suggested that some of the main ingredients found in mass produced sunscreens could even cause cancer.

Here’s a list of potential toxic chemicals that may be learking in you sunscreen:

  • Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), including octyl-dimethyl PABA
  • Benzophenones, especially benzophenone-3, Oxybenzone
  • Cinnamates, namely octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC)
  • Homosalate
  • 4-methyl-benzylidene camphor (4-MBC)
  • Retinyl Palmitate

Luckily, there are ways to protect your skin from overexposure without the use of harsh chemicals. Many natural oils offer protection from the sun and offer varying levels of SPF.

Get sun protection without the toxins

When shopping for sunscreens be sure to read the labels and avoid buying sunscreens containing toxic chemicals, such as those found in the above list. Or you could try making your own using safe oils (some which you can find in your kitchen!).

Here are some natural alternatives to traditional sunscreens that feature some built-in SPF protection:

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil can provide a SPF of 8. Even though this isn’t a very high SPF, multiple applications can provide extra moisture and prevent skin from burning.

Wheatgerm Oil

Wheat-germ oil contains vitamin A, vitamin D, B vitamins and antioxidants. These nutrients not only moisturize and heal dry or cracked skin, they also help prevent scarring. In particular, wheat-germ oil has a natural SPF of and is a great source of vitamin E, which helps reduce skin damage.

Shea Butter

Shea butter has an SPF of about 6, which is perfect for low sun levels or people with naturally dark skin. It works wonders on dry skin and eczema because it’s readily absorbed into the skin and contains so many fatty acids.

Red Raspberry Seed Oil

Red Raspberry Seed Oil is a great additional to skin care products due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Recently, this fruit oil has been found to contain an SPF as high as 28-50 which is equal to that of titanium dioxide.

Carrot Seed Oil

This essential oil is contains a natural SPF of 38 to 40. Carrot seed oil therapeutic benefits include antioxidant, antiseptic and high levels of Vitamin A. Make sure to use with a carrier oil before applying it to your skin.

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.
