Nothing staves off the Fall’s early morning chills like a warm, comforting bowl of oatmeal. But let’s be honest, it’s hard to get too excited about what is essentially breakfast’s equivalent of a favorite pair of slippers. After all, oatmeal is just some cold flaky oats and some heated water or milk, right? In its purest form, sure. But it doesn’t have to be! Add a little flair to your oatmeal game with some of these healthy add-ins.

What You Need to Know About MCT Oil

Filed Under: Diet & Weight Loss,Health Foods,Supplements at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Imagine if you could find a supplement that can help improve digestion and maintain a healthy weight by reducing stored body fat and raising metabolic function. On top of that, this product may help balance hormone levels, improve cognitive function, work as an energy booster, fight bacterial infection and viruses, and absorb fat-soluble nutrients from foods. Sounds good? This wonderful supplement is MCT oil.

MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, a form of saturated fatty acid that can offer all the numerous health benefits mentioned above. Coconut oil is the best source of MCTs as roughly 65% of the fatty acids in coconut oil are MCTs.

MCT oils contain good fats which ideally should be consumed every day. Certain saturated fats, especially MCTs and other healthy fats found in coconut oil or grass-fed beef, are in fact easier to digest than long-chain triglycerides (LCTs) and might even have more benefits related to heart health, obesity prevention and brain health. Compared to longer-chain fats, MCTs are absorbed more easily since there’s less work for the body to break apart carbon bonds. MCTs are smaller and can permeate cell membranes more easily without requiring special enzymes in order for our bodies to utilize them.

After digested, MCTs healthy fats are sent directly to the liver, where they have a thermogenic effect and the ability to positively alter the metabolism. Additionally, MCTs contain antioxidant properties as well as anti-inflammatory properties.

Aside from coconut oil, smaller amounts of MCTs can also be found in other foods with saturated fats including whole milk, butter, cheese, full-fat yogurt, and palm oil.


4 Healthy Types of Flour for Baking

Filed Under: Gluten Free,Health Foods at 5:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Do you love baking but wish you could find better, healthier alternative ingredients for your baked goods? Changing one main ingredient can make a big difference: flour.

Using natural flour can make your baking healthier, delicious, and even provide health benefits. Today, we focus on 4 healthy types of flour for baking: coconut, brown rice, tapioca, and almond.

1. Coconut

A soft, not grain-based flour produced from dried coconut meat, coconut flour is a natural byproduct of coconut milk production. This soft, fine powder is suitable for baking and popular among those adhering to grain-restrictive diets such as paleo diets. Coconut flour is gluten-free and rich in protein, fiber and fat which makes it exceptionally filling. A great source of manganese, it also contains lauric acid, a saturated fat known to support the immune system, the thyroid, and promote good skin health.

2. Brown Rice

Brown rice flour has a stronger, nuttier flavor than conventional wheat flours and is an excellent choice for muffins and cookies. This flour can be gluten-free and it tend to behave differently from conventional wheat flour when baked and may make your baked goods a little brittle, but also richer in fiber.

3. Tapioca

Tapioca flour comes from the cassava plant and is a gluten-free starch that can help improve not only the flavor but also the texture of gluten-free baked goods. Tapioca flour can help building the structure to gluten-free goods, making them chewy and more like traditional recipes.

4. Almond

Almond flour is full of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. Perfect for pancakes, muffins, bread and brownies, this soft, delicate crumb is actually a flour used in many traditional baked goods. Just like tapioca, almond flour is often used for the texture it brings to baked goods.

  3. Facial Toner – Fight acne and clear blackheads with a simple recipe consisting of one cup of witch hazel, one tablespoon ACV add five drops of lavender essential oil. Combine all ingredients, store in a sterile bottle and you’re good to go.

Top 10 Health and Wellness Trends for Fall 2016

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Health Foods,Nutrition,Personal Care at 4:50 pm | By: Dr. Jeremy Wolf, ND & Lead Wellness Advisor
Young woman enjoying nature and sunlight in straw field

With new superfoods and alternative health products popping up in the media every day, it’s hard to know what the cleanest, most effective product innovations really are. Dr. Jeremy Wolf N.D., Lead Wellness Advisor at, breaks down the trends and how to be a savvy wellness shopper this fall.


Summer is over, which can only mean one thing. Back to school. And back to packing lunches. It’s estimated that the average family will use 500 Ziploc bags each year and according to one survey, around 2.79% of Americans use 21 or more bags within 7 days.  That’s around 1,000 bags a year. Luckily LunchSkins has reusable dishwasher safe sandwich, snack and lunch bags that are a creative and environmentally friendly alternative. Another trend for the 2016 school year will be lunches that are gluten free, dairy free and include meat alternatives. More and more parents, children and families are embracing an allergen free or vegetarian/vegan lifestyle. As a result, I believe school lunches across the country will have more options for children with dietary restrictions.


The beetroot movement is upon us, I repeat, the beetroot movement is upon us. Since 2009 beet products have quadrupled. Beets have attracted a lot of attention as a “functional food” meaning they not only provide basic nutrients, but may help promote optimal health and reduce the risk of disease.  While this vegetable’s popularity has only recently gained back momentum, its use dates back to ancient Roman times. So why has it become so popular again? Beets are a source of nitrates and provide a natural means of increasing nitric oxide (NO) availability. Beetroot is a rich source of phytochemical compounds that include ascorbic acid, carotenoids, phenolic acids, and flavonoids. Beets also contain a group of bioactive pigments known as betalains that are thought to have high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Beet products can be found in the forms of Beet Juice, Energy Bars, Sports Shots, Protein Powders, Veggie Packs, and Beet Crystals. LuckyVitamin carries a large selection of these products from top rated brands.


Let’s face it, trends in the natural beauty and personal care industry aren’t just for women. With more & more men growing beards, companies all over are outfitting all natural beard oil, washes, and balms for men. Beard oil works to soften and condition facial hair while moisturizing the skin to prevent dryness, itching and irritation. Badger’s, certified organic man care beard oil is one of my personal favorites. Beard wash is generally a combination of herbs, extracts and other ingredients intended to clean, moisturize and condition the hair and skin of the face. Lastly, beard balms offer a little hold for grooming but also condition the beard to help stop dryness, split ends, tangles and frizz. Use of these products can help any man turn their 5 o’clock shadow into the manliest of beards.


The term superfood describes nutrient-rich foods that are considered to be beneficial for one’s health and well being.  There’s yet another superfood craze you may not have indulged in yet, but chances are after reading this you will! Pulses, which are another name for lentils, chickpeas, beans and dry peas, have become one of the most talked about superfoods in the health and wellness industry. Pulses provide protein and fiber as well as vitamins and minerals such as iron, zinc and magnesium. In fact, a ½ cup serving of black beans has one and half times the iron of a 3-ounce piece of steak. Pulses are also packed full of saponins and tannins, phytochemicals which may possess antioxidant and anti-carcinogenic benefits.  An article from the Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that inclusion of pulses in a diet may be a beneficial weight-loss strategy because it leads to a modest weight-loss effect, although further research & future studies are needed. This summer, shop LuckyVitamin to incorporate your favorite pulses into your diet.


White flour is unfortunately a big part of most individual’s daily food consumption even though it provides little nutritional value. With more and more individuals following specific diets free of allergens or other restrictions, limiting white flour can make baking, cooking and eating out very difficult. Now it’s no wonder more companies are providing alternative flour options. These options include rice flour, coconut flour, buckwheat flour, almond flour, sorghum flour, amaranth flour and many more. LuckyVitamin has a large selection of alternative flour options from top brands such as Bob’s Red Mill, Nutiva, NOW Foods, Arrowhead Mills and more.


Activated charcoal has long been used by hospitals around the world as a safe and effective treatment for poisoning and drug overdoses. This ingredient is making its way to the beauty realm, from facemasks to shampoos, toothpowders and deodorants. These products use activated charcoal, which means the coal has been heated to increase its adsorptive power, increasing the rate at which molecules bind to a surface. Activated charcoal is great at trapping chemicals, absorbing dirt and oil, absorbing 1,000 times its own weight in moisture.  Some great beauty products using activated charcoal include Piperwai Natural Deodorant, Dr. Sponge Konjac Facial Sponge, Level Naturals and Collective Wellbeing.


Berberine is a chemical that is found in a number of plants commonly used in botanical medicine practices. These herbs include barberry (Berberis vulgaris), oregon grape (Berberis aquifolium), goldenseal (Hydrastis Canadensis), and chinese goldthread (Coptis chinensis). Berberine is a yellow-colored alkaloid compound. Alkaloids are compounds found in plants that have physiological actions on humans. Berberine is believed to have anti-microbial actions against bacteria, fungi, viruses, and helminthes. It may also has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, and may even be beneficial against metabolic syndrome (a group of conditions that puts you at higher risk for stroke, heart disease and other health problems such as diabetes). With the increasing rise in metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and heart disease and the therapeutic potential of berberine, it is no reason that this chemical is trending upward. LuckyVitamin has a large selection of Berberine products from top rated companies such as Vital Nutrients, Douglas Laboratories and Biotics Research.


Wellness bloggers and celebrity chefs have been talking about this trend for some time now, and its popularity continues to grow. Bone broth, or stock, is made by boiling the bones from the animal of your choice (commonly turkey, chicken or beef) with vegetables and spices. Part of the reason it’s becoming so popular is because bone broth is easy to make, relatively inexpensive and packed with vitamins, minerals and proteins. Some of the benefits may include promoting strong bones and reducing joint pain and inflammation. It may also help inhibit infection and seal your gut to promote healthy digestion. While it’s best to try and make your own bone broth, Pacific Natural Foods, Kettle and Fire and Osteobroth are great sources of convenient pre-made broths.


Saturated fats get a bad rap. However, it’s important to remember that saturated fatty acids are classified by the length of their chains, such as short, medium or long chain fatty acids. Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are a form of saturated fat with many proposed health benefits. There are three separate fatty acids classified as medium chain: caproic, caprylic and capric acid. MCT oil is one of the biggest growing health trends right now.  It’s believed that because MCTs are more rapidly metabolized that they may increase energy expenditure (calories burned) leading to weight loss. It is also believed that MCTs have a lower calorie count and are not stored in fat deposits in the body as much as long chain fatty acids. Lastly, MCTs may provide you with a little extra energy to get you through the day. You can use MCT oil for a salad dressing or cooking oil, however, it does not have a very high smoke point (320°F). Other MCT sources include coconut oil, palm kernel oil, cheese, butter, milk and yogurt. Shop our large selection of top selling brands such as Nature’s Way, Now Foods, Quest Nutrition, Barlean’s and many more.


When it comes to fruits with health benefits, avocados are at the top of the list. They’re packed full of fiber, potassium and vitamins such as vitamin B6, B5, C, E. One of the most talked about benefits is the fact that it provides the body with “good” fats, also known as monounsaturated fats. These fats can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood, which in turn can lower the risk of heart disease and stroke.  One new and interesting use for avocado is avocado oil. Brands are using avocado oil to make all sorts of products, including cooking oil, avocado mayonnaise and avocado kettle chips. You can even find avocado oil in personal care products. Some great brands that use of avocado oil based beauty products include Peter Lamas, Giovanni, Now Foods and Baby Mantra.

Snack Time? Fruits and Nuts Bars

Filed Under: Health Foods,Nutritional Bars at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
If you struggle to eat fresh fruits but know the importance they have as part of a well-balanced, healthy diet, you may have an alternative option: nutritional fruit bars.

If you keep reading about the health benefits from nuts and seeds but can’t seem to be able to add them into your diet, you may also have a good alternative: nutritional nut bars.

Do you want to solve two problems at once? Check out nutritional fruit and nut bars! These delicious products can be easily added to your diet at very affordable prices.

Most fruit and nut bars are a great source of fiber as well as a good source of heart-healthy unsaturated fats. Plus, a good number of these types of nutritional bars contain good amounts of vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects your cells. However, not all bars can be considered healthy as many fruit and nut bars may have unhealthy saturated fat and sugar, particularly the conventional brands sold at large retail stores.

The most nutritious prepackaged fruit and nut bars are those that are low in sugar and high in fiber. Bars made with oats and other whole grains are usually better choices because these ingredients are good sources of fiber. For example, nut and raisin bars average about 3 grams of saturated fat, and some fruit and nut bars can have as much as 20 grams of sugar. If you considered fruit and nut bars coated with chocolate, this number can be as high as 30 grams of sugar. So, carefully check the labels for nutritional value and ingredients.

Lastly, if you want to ensure you are eating healthy fruit and nut bars, why not making them yourself? If you can find many different DIY bar recipes online and, surprisingly, making homemade nutritional bars may be easier than you think. Give it a try!


Battle of Superfoods: Flax vs. Chia

Filed Under: Health Foods,Superfoods at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Flax seeds and chia seeds are two of the most popular superfoods as both are excellent plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids. One question always pops up when talking about these two seeds: which one is better? Which one should you buy? Perhaps the best answer is: it depends on what you are looking for but, regardless, both seeds are an excellent addition to your diet.

Chia seeds have been one of the hottest, top-selling items in recent years due to its endless health benefits. These South American seeds are known to promote energy, weight-loss, and strength as well as regulate the digestive system. In comparison to flax, chia seeds contain less calories 69 vs. 75 per 2tbsp serving and less fat 4,4g vs. 6g. Additionally, chia offers a little more fiber and antioxidants than flax seeds. One ounce of chia seeds has 11g of fiber, 20% of the RDA vs. 15% RDA from flax. The fiber in chia is largely soluble and may bind with cholesterol, evacuating it out of the body, It can also help IBS as it absorbs water that is excreted more slowly during digestion than insoluble fibers. Unlike flax seeds, chia seeds are an excellent source of calcium, as one serving of chia contains roughly 20% of your daily calcium needs.

Flax seeds are just as nutritious and offer many health benefits. In comparison to chia, flax offer less carbs 4g vs. 6g per 2tbsp serving and more vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, potassium, copper, vitamin B1 and folate. One of the best nutritional benefits of flax is that they are a rich source of lignans, a type of antioxidant known as phytochemicals that have been linked to a reduction in menopause symptoms, removing cholesterol from the body, and enhancing the appearance of skin and hair. Flax is the number one highest source of omega-3 fatty acids of all plant foods, slightly edging chia in this category. Flax is mostly comprised of ALA fats (alpha linolenic fats), which is a precursor fat to forming EPA and DHA, the types of omega 3′s that are excellent for your skin, brain, arteries, and preventing inflammation.
