Add to Your Diet: Five Super Berries to Improve Your Health

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

Super berries are among the hottest, most popular super-foods in the market and for good reasons. These nutrient-rich foods have high concentrations of anthocyanin, a super antioxidant that may help lower blood pressure and improve blood vessel function, among other health benefits. If you are not sure which one(s) should you add to your diet, here’s a great list for five super berries that can help improve your health.

1. Açai berry

Perhaps the most popular of the miracle, super-food variety, açai berries are harvested from açai palm trees native to the rain forests of South America. Among its health benefits, açai has been known to help with weight loss and high cholesterol, give a boost to erectile dysfunction, support arthritis, aid detoxification, and improve overall health. Açai berries have proven to be a good source of antioxidants, fiber and heart-healthy fats.

 

 

2. Blueberry

 

Blueberries contain one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings. Studies have shown that blueberries may reduce memory decline as well as heart attack risk, can improve vision, and may provide other anti-aging benefits. They are also an excellent source of vitamins C and K, manganese and a good source of dietary fiber.

 

 

3. Cranberry

 

Cranberry can help prevent urinary tract infections but this North America native fruit offers a variety of other health benefits. Cranberries have a long history of use for medicinal purposes, including treatments for wounds, diarrhea, diabetes, stomach ailments and liver issues.

 

 

4. Goji berry

 

Native to the Himalayan region of China and Tibet, Goji berries have been used by Chinese herbalists for years to help eyesight, boost immune function and promote longevity. Goji berries contain very high antioxidant concentration as well as remarkable levels of vitamin C, beta carotene, amino acids, iron, and B vitamins.

 

 

 

5. Noni berry

 

Originally from the tropical areas of the South Pacific, noni berry has been a popular ingredient in Polynesian cultures to treat menstrual cramps, bowel irregularities, diabetes, liver diseases and urinary tract infections. Noni offers significant amounts of vitamin C, niacin, iron, potassium, with lesser amounts of vitamin A and calcium.

The Natural Defense

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

With fall already here and the winter months rapidly approaching, the temperatures are going to start dropping.  This means sweaters, jeans and winter jackets are going to make the move from boxes to closets. This winter everyone is going to be looking for ways to boost their immune system and stay healthy. But you don’t need to worry; there are natural alternatives to help you save those sick days for when you really need to use them.

Probiotics are a great way to not only improve your digestive system, but also boost your overall health and well-being. These beneficial bacteria aid in the development of the intestinal cells, stimulate the maturation and development of immune system by aiding in the fight of pathogenic bacteria, detoxify the body, improve digestion and help to synthesize vitamins. Eighty percent of your immune system is found inside your digestive system, which means that a healthier gut equals a healthier you.

Vitamin D is one of the most talked about vitamins these days. It is a “powerhouse” supplement that has much more importance in the body than just aiding in the building of strong bones. This vitamin acts more like a hormone in the body by binding to different receptors. Vitamin D plays a critical role in your immune response by assisting your body in making well over 200 antimicrobial peptides which are necessary in fighting off a wide range of infections. Before starting supplementation, make sure to see your health care provider so they can check your vitamin D levels.

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has traditionally been known for its ability to boost immune system function. Because of its strong antiviral properties, it has long been used to treat colds and flu. Sambucol, an elderberry based natural remedy, was shown to be effective in vitro against 10 different strains of influenza virus. Another study showed that Sambucol had the ability to reduce flu symptoms down to 3-4 days. Don’t worry about giving this to children either; it’s safe, effective and taste delicious!

This fall start boosting your immune system naturally so you are ready to fight off all the bacteria and viruses this winter. Check out all of these great products and much more found at LuckyVitamin.com.

Easy Ways to Prevent Fall Allergies

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Supplements at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Summer is almost over. With less pollen in the air, summer allergies are almost done but it’s now time to prepare to prevent fall allergies.

Fall allergens like ragweed, mold and dust remain a problem for many people. Ragweed is the biggest allergy trigger in the fall. This yellow-flowering weed typically begins pollinating in August, affecting people as its pollen can travel for hundreds of miles with the wind. Mold allergies are also common as its spores can easily get airborne. Mold thrives in damp areas such as piles of leaves in yards and streets. Dust mites are a common indoor allergen and continue to make their way into your nose during the fall.

Runny nose, sneezing and itchy eyes are the most common symptoms of fall allergies, which are triggered when foreign invaders enter the nose and the immune system mistakenly releases antibodies, which attack the allergens, leading to the release of chemicals called histamines, and triggering runny nose and itchy eyes.

Boosting your immune system is one of the best ways to prevent fall allergies. Immune system supplements can strengthen the body’s defenses but there are a few easy ways for keeping these triggers at bay in your home to ensure that you are comfortable during the fall allergy season.

Cleaning is a must. Keep your house and work place clean and free of dust can make a big difference if you suffer from allergies. Vacuuming and dusting should be a priority in the fall.  Try to reduce the amount of mold by cleaning your bathrooms regularly as well as your bathroom windows and walls. Use a mix of water and bleach to kill mold and bacteria, and then turn on the fan to circulate air. Don’t forget to air out your home. Check local allergy forecast before you open the windows and avoid peak allergy hours.

What’s New? MCT Lean

Filed Under: Diet & Weight Loss,Sports Nutrition,Supplements at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin is presenting another top-quality brand of weight-loss products to our customers: MCT Lean.

MCT Lean offers scientifically researched plant-based dietary supplements and functional foods from naturally cultivated ingredients aimed at keeping you in top physical form and helping you achieve a sense of complete wellbeing and optimal health. Whether you want to lose weight, build muscle, increase energy, or just live a healthier life, MCT Lean has the ultimate fuel product to help you achieving your goals.

MCT Lean believes “fats” get a bad reputation and for the most part, deservedly so. However, not all fats are the same and MCT Lean has found extreme value in one particular fat: medium chain triglycerides, or MCTs.

MCTs are the premium fuel for your body’s everyday functions and likely the best fuel for life. MCTs don’t behave like other fats as it is chemically structured to produce energy, not body fat. In fact, MCTs are hailed as the all-natural answer to eliminating stubborn body fat. The Dr. Oz show had a very interesting segment on the MCTs, classifying it as one of Dr. Oz’s top three “fat burner” supplements.

The typical Western diet is largely composed of long chain triglycerides (LCTs), typically consumed in processed vegetable oils such as canola, soy, and safflower. In excess, LCTs acts as the building blocks of stubborn body fat. Unlike LCTs, MCTs are primarily used for energy production and rarely ever stored as fat. In addition, MCTs promote ketones, an alternative power source which can become the main energy source when you eat a diet low in carbs and high in healthful fat. MCT Lean uses these MCTs as the foundation for creating the highest quality plant-based dietary supplements and functional foods to support those striving to live an active, nutritious lifestyle.

Go Red: Women Heart Disease

Filed Under: Supplements,Women's Health at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, killing approximately 400.000 women per year, which represents one in every four female deaths. Heart disease is sometimes thought of as a “man’s disease” but it is important to know that about the same number of women and men die each year of cardiovascular disease.

Risk factors such as smoking, obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes are spreading among women across the country. Complicating matters, women with heart disease often have different symptoms than men, such as back or jaw pain instead of the common crushing chest pain men often describe as a first symptom. Additionally, according to doctors, women are also more likely to deny the problem.

Awareness of heart disease among women is gradually rising and the American Heart Association Go Red for Women campaign is an excellent way to raise awareness and help women across the country.

Go Red For Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges them to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. It also gives them the tools they need to lead a heart healthy life.

The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest, largest voluntary organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular diseases and stroke. It works to improve the lives of all Americans, providing public health education in a variety of ways. In 2010, it set a strategic goal of reducing death and disability from cardiovascular disease and strokes by 20 percent while improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent by the year 2020.

Blueberries are known for its health benefits but some people may not know how many different benefits one can get from these delicious little blue fruits. Blueberries have a diverse range of micronutrients including essential dietary minerals, vitamins, and soluble dietary fiber.

Blueberries are very low in calories. About 100g of fresh berries provide only 57 calories and, similar to red grape, they contain resveratrol, the anti-aging superfood. Additionally, blueberries contain anthocyanins, other pigments, and various phytochemicals anti-oxidants that contribute immensely towards optimum health and wellness. Studies have shown that pigments found in blueberries may reduce risks of diseases such as inflammation and cancer. Preliminary studies found blueberry consumption lowered cholesterol and total blood lipid levels, possibly affecting symptoms of heart disease. Wild South American varieties may contain higher levels of polyphenols.

Research has shown that supplementation of wild blueberry juice may benefit the brain, improve memory and learning in older adults, while possibly reducing blood sugar and symptoms of depression. Blueberries are among the highest anti-oxidant value fruits. The ORAC value of 100 g fresh blueberry is 5562 TE (Trolex equivalents).

Blueberries contain plenty of vitamin and minerals. Vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E are found in small amounts but altogether work as potent anti-oxidants. The berries also contain a small amount of B-complex group of vitamins such as niacin, pyridoxine, folates and pantothenic acid. It contains very good amounts of vitamin B-6, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and folic acid. Blueberries also contain a good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, iron and zinc.

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.
