Fight Depression Naturally With St. John’s Wort

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Herbs,Supplements at 2:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Did you know that one in ten adults is affected by depression in the United States? Depression can affect people in many different ways. Mood, thoughts, physical health, and behavior all may be affected but the symptoms and severity of depression can vary from person to person. Depression can be treated with regular medicine but that is not the only option. Natural supplements can be very helpful to fight this medical condition and St. John’s Wort products are one of the best ways to treat depression naturally.

St. John’s Wort supplements are made from a plant (Hypericum perforatum) that grows in the wild. This herbal product has been used for centuries for health purposes and studies have shown that St. John’s may help some types of depression, similar to treatment with standard prescription antidepressants. A 2009 systematic review of 29 international studies suggested that St. John’s Wort may be better than a placebo (an inactive substance that appears identical to the study substance) and as effective as standard prescription antidepressants for major depression of mild to moderate severity. St. John’s Wort also appeared to have fewer side effects than standard antidepressants. The studies were conducted in German-speaking countries where St. John’s Wort has a long history of use by medical professionals, reported more positive results than those done in other countries, including the United States.

St. John’s Wort is widely prescribed for depression in Europe but the herb has some side effects. Make sure to consult with your health care provider before you start taking St. John’s Wort supplements.

What’s New? Harmonic Innerprizes

Filed Under: Supplements,Women's Health at 2:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin is happy to introduce another premium brand of supplements to our customers: Harmonic Innerprizes.

Harmonic Innerprizes offers a unique line of products to make a significant difference on people’s lives. Established in 1995, the company has pioneered the new science of monatomic elements (ORMES) that was discovered by David Hudson a few years earlier. This research led to the study of electromagnetics and how the electromagnetics of substances affected the electromagnetics of the body and how the health and vitality of the body is influenced by electromagnetic frequencies.

Harmonic Innerprizes discovered that you can positively influence the health of the body, the thoughts of the brain, and the feelings of the emotions by infusing it with the energy from minerals, botanicals, and nutraceuticals that have been energetically balanced. The company concluded that the health of the body is more influenced by belief systems than imperfect diets or the quality of drinking water. Harmonic Innerprizes believes that anything physical was created from energy and by reconnecting with that energy optimal health can be achieved. By optimal health, it means balance and harmony permeating mind, body and spirit because you simply will not have a healthy body unless the mind is focused on the positive and the emotions are proactive and not reactive.

Harmonic Innerprizes Etherium dietary supplements are trace elements that contain significant amounts of natural monatomic minerals to enhance the body’s electromagnetic systems that increase the mind, body, spirit connections. These products have the ability to invigorate the senses and broaden your perceptions, resulting in higher states of consciousness and a spiritual transformation.

The Advantages of Krill Oil Supplements

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

The debate never ends. Fish oil supplements versus krill oil supplements. This subject has been a popular discussion among health experts as well as users for many years. Both products offer excellent health benefits and a recent study confirms another good result for krill oil supplements.

A new study collected the effects of 12 weeks of daily krill oil supplementation on fasting serum triglyceride (TG) and lipoprotein particle levels in subjects whose habitual fish intake is low and who have borderline high or high fasting serum TG levels (150–499 mg/dL). Researchers concluded that krill oil lowers serum TG levels in subjects with borderline high or high fasting TG levels. The data included 300 male and female subjects in a double-blind, randomized, multi-center, placebo-controlled study. Relative to subjects in the placebo group, those administered krill oil had a statistically significant calculated reduction in serum TG levels of 10.2%. Moreover, LDL-C levels were not increased in the krill oil groups relative to the placebo group. The outcome of the pooled analysis suggests that krill oil is effective in reducing a cardiovascular risk factor.

Krill oil contains omega-3 fatty acids which have been clinically proven to be more efficiently absorbed by our body as they are carried to our body cells in a phospholipid form. Unlike fish oil (which is 61-65% bioavailable), it mimics the very membranes of your cells, thus penetrating so easily that you get 95-98% of what you pay for. In addition, a super-antioxidant found only in krill oil is an ultra-potent nutrient, stronger than most other antioxidants including Co-Q10, for protection from the free radical damage that promotes aging and disease.

Krill oil contains the three most important elements the human body needs to function properly: phospholipids, omega-3 essential fatty acids (similar to those of fish oil), and astaxanthin, a very powerful antioxidant.

Vitamins to Take for Asthma

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Supplements,Vitamins and Minerals at 8:00 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways characterized by wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness, airway hyper-responsiveness, and coughing, particularly at night or after exercise. Asthma can seriously impact the daily routines of the estimated 300 million individuals worldwide that suffer from it. It is important for people with asthma to recognize their triggers and avoid them. The same factors that provoke allergies can also trigger childhood asthma. These triggers include items such as dust, pet dander, indoor and outdoor mold, air pollutants, smoke, and other toxic chemicals.  Changes in weather, especially temperature, can also trigger an asthma attack. Supplements can be a great way to decrease inflammation, relax the airways, and improve the body overall.

  • Magnesium – is a known anti-inflammatory that also promotes the relaxation of muscles.  This is especially pertinent when it comes to the treatment of asthma because magnesium can relax the bronchial smooth muscle.  It is well known that magnesium administered intravenously during an acute attack is an effective treatment.  There has been little research done on magnesium taken orally, but one study found that it improved symptom scores as well as reduced bronchodilator use.
  • Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) – promotes relaxation of the tracheal smooth muscle, which means it may also have a bronchodilating effect. Theophylline, one of the many medications used in the treatment of allergies, works by inhibiting phosphodiesterase. Vitamin C was also found to have a very similar effect in vitro. It is well documented that vitamin C has an ability to reduce histamine released in the body. Studies have shown that there is a correlation between low levels of vitamin C and increased levels of histamine in the blood. Vitamin C was also found to have a protective effect against exercised-induced asthma attacks. There is a lot of research that shows vitamin C is a beneficial nutrient in the treatment of asthma.
  • Vitamin D– One study showed that reduced levels of vitamin D in the body are associated with impaired lung function, increased airway hyper-responsiveness, and reduced response to glucocorticoid medications. In other words, patients who have adequate levels of vitamin D will respond better to asthma treatments and may even have less severe symptoms.
  • Fish Oils– Research has demonstrated that a diet supplemented with fish oil ameliorates the severity of exercise-induced airway narrowing in subjects with mild-to-moderate persistent asthma. The study also showed that fish oil reduces airway inflammation in asthmatic subjects with exercised-induced bronchoconstriction. Fish Oils have long been known to have an anti-inflammatory effect and this study only further proved that.
  • Selenium- is an essential mineral found in the body that works as an antioxidant preventing against oxidative stress. One of the many theories behind what causes asthma is an increased oxidative stress load in the body. Research showed that selenium levels are depleted in patients with asthma vs. patients without it. It also showed that taking selenium daily was able to reduce medication requirements and have non-significant improvement in pulmonary function in steroid dependent adult asthmatics.

Supplements to Reduce PMS Symptoms

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Supplements,Women's Health at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

It’s that time of the month again. Aunt Flo rears her ugly head in the form of bloating, mood swings, cramping and a boatload of other annoying symptoms. This period of emotional imbalance is known as premenstrual syndrome. PMS symptoms are a lot more common than you think. In fact, around 80% of women will experience at least one PMS symptom in each cycle. Luckily, there’s something out there that can bring relief when PMS symptoms start.

Super Nutrition offers three formulations that can reduce PMS symptoms including Simply One Women, Women’s Blend and Anti-aging Potency. All of these formulations contain vital nutrients that have been scientifically proven to reduce PMS discomfort.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), naturally present in many foods, can reduce PMS symptoms, including moodiness, irritability. In a recent study of 630 women, 100 mg to 150 mg of supplemental vitamin B6 reduced PMS in about 66% of the women, and 160 mg to 200 mg of Vitamin B6 reduced PMS in about 79% of the women.

Vitamin D

There is some evidence that getting more vitamin D from the diet might help to prevent PMS or reduce symptoms. Another study revealed women who received took 706 IU/day of vitamin D per had 41% less PMS symptoms than those who received 112IU/day.

Vitex (Chaste Tree Berry) 

Vitex is sometimes called “the women’s herb.” It is used for menstrual cycle irregularities, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), a more severe form of PMS called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and symptoms of menopause. Please take into consideration it should not be taken with the pill as it may increase the side effects and decrease its effectiveness.

Magnesium

The mineral magnesium, found naturally in food and available in supplements, has showing good preliminary results for PMS. When taking magnesium at 200 and 360 mg per day reduced symptoms including weight gain, fluid retention, swelling of extremities, breast tenderness and abdominal bloating.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is very helpful to women. It provides relief from hot flashes, cramps, and menstrual pain. It has a primary function as an antioxidant, protecting cell membranes, active enzyme sites and DNA.

Every woman with PMS suffers a different set of physical and emotional symptoms. It’s good to know that help is here from Super Nutrition!

Vitamins to Take for Memory

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Herbs,Mental Wellbeing,Supplements,Vitamins and Minerals at 8:00 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 Let’s face it; we aren’t getting any younger. As we age, our memory begins to fade and what we were able to do as kids and teenagers we are no longer able to do as adults. Remembering names, numbers, birthdays, computer passwords, etc. gets harder by the day.  What if we could take preventative measures today to help improve our memory and brain function later in life? Today we are going to take a look at vitamins and natural treatments to help improve your mental function and keep it functioning at its highest potential.

Rhodiola rosea is an herb that grows primarily in dry sandy ground at high altitudes in the arctic areas of Europe and Asia. A common adaptogen, meaning it helps combat stress, this herb has long been known to increase physical endurance, combat fatigue, improve immunity, increase work productivity, enhance longevity, and improve depression. Human studies have shown that salidroside, an active principal of Rhodiola, improved mental ability.  Another study looked at Rhodiola rhizome on non-specific fatigue. Fatigue was assessed based on the evaluation of audial and visual short-term memory and ability for mental attention. Results showed that Rhodiola extract posses a clear anti-fatigue effect.

Ginkgo biloba has long been known as an herb that has a strong affinity for mental function and brain health. The ginkgo tree is the sole survivor of a primitive order of plants dating from 200 million years ago and is the world’s oldest living tree species. It is best known for its ability to stimulate blood flow through the smaller blood vessels, which in turn increases circulation to all vital organs including the brain.  Studies have shown that it may delay mental decline in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and can even slow senile dementia.

Bacopa monnieri is an Ayurvedic herb that has been used for centuries. This plant has been used mostly as a brain booster that enhances memory development, learning, and concentration. Only minimal amounts of studies have been done on this herb and there have been mixed effects on Bacopa’s ability to enhance mental function.  More research is warranted on this herb’s effect on memory and brain function.

Zinc deficiency has been shown to increase neuronal apoptosis which can lead to learning and memory deficits. At optimal physiologic concentrations, zinc has been shown to be neuroprotective, while excess amounts of zinc have shown to be neurotoxic. A lot of research is currently being done on zinc’s effect on mental function and brain health. This research includes the role of zinc in Alzheimer’s disease, depression, and aging. Avoid taking zinc on an empty stomach as it may make you nauseous.

Choline is a nutrient that is found in foods like saltwater fish, eggs, liver, chicken, milk, and certain legumes, including soy and kidney beans. Choline is the precursor to acetylcholine, one of the body’s major neurotransmitters.  Acetylcholine has been found to play a key role in encoding new memories, but not affecting memories previously stored.  Pharmacological drugs used in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease are drugs that prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine. This is because it is a brain chemical that may be important for memory and may help to delay or prevent the symptoms of Alzheimer’s from becoming worse for a limited time. In a study looking at dietary choline intake, researchers found that better memory performance was linked to higher choline intake.

Hair, Skin and Nail Supplements

Filed Under: Personal Care,Supplements,Vitamins and Minerals at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Isn’t it great when you find a supplement that can provide more than one benefit? We often shop for a product that can help with one health issue and, as a plus, this same product may provide benefits for something else. So, how about if you can take a supplement that can provide not one, not two, but three benefits? That’s the case for Hair, Skin and Nails supplements.

Hair, Skin and Nails supplements have been around for quite some time and some people have always obtained good results from them. These popular supplements have the ability to help in three different areas because their formulas contain ingredients capable of providing benefits for many health issues. The majority of products contain a combination of vitamins, minerals and herbs. They are very much like multivitamin products but with specific dosages and extra ingredients to support healthy hair, and promote beautiful skin and nails. People can certainly take the most of these supplements, proven to be extremely effective in addressing certain skin, nail, or hair issues.

When shopping Hair, Skin and Nail Supplements check for a few ingredients, including biotin, omega-3, and vitamin B. Biotin is definitely the most important ingredient as it encourages the production of protein for nail growth, it stimulates new hair growth and promotes healthier texture by protecting against dryness, scalp flaking and increasing elasticity of the hair’s cortex to prevent breakage. A Vitamin B complex can also be helpful as vitamin B deficiency is a major cause of acne, so making sure your body receives enough will help prevent and treat the condition. Omega-3s are an excellent ingredient to maintain healthy hair and skin as the fatty acids helps protect and repair skin cells, moisturizing the skin from the inside out.

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.
