3 Efficient Natural Energy Boosters

Filed Under: Health Foods,Herbs,Supplements at 6:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

If you are constantly feeling tired and can’t seem to boost your energy levels, a few natural products might be just what you need. Guaraná, maca, and ginseng have been top-selling energy enhancers for many years as studies have shown that these herbal products are efficient in providing a boost in energy levels. So, let’s learn a little more about these 3 efficient natural energy boosters.

Guaraná 

Guaraná is originally from the Amazon region and its products are popular in Brazil and other South America countries. Loaded with caffeine, one seed of guaraná contains five times more caffeine than an average coffee bean. Available in supplement form, this tropical fruit is also used to make energy drinks as well as soft drinks but with significantly lower levels of caffeine. A good number of natural energy supplements contain guaraná in formulas designed for fat burner, weight-loss, athletic performance enhancers, and products to stimulate the mental function.

Maca

Maca products are known to promote more energy as well as hormonal balance. This superfood has been used for centuries by the native people in the Andes of Peru for a variety of health benefits. Maca root is not only known to boost energy levels but it is also believed to increase sex drive and improve fertility, increasing semen volume and sperm counts. Maca contains high levels of protein, fat and minerals and it’s eaten baked, dried or mixed with vegetables.

Ginseng

Ginseng is one of the most popular herbal supplements due to its long list of health benefits. Research has suggested that the root of the ginseng plant (Panax ginseng) is helpful to improve energy levels and is also beneficial to control blood sugar levels. Ginseng provides sustainable energy by utilizing your body’s own energy resources as it has the ability to boost energy by ramping up ATP production.

7 Signs of a Nutritional Deficiency

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Supplements,Vitamins and Minerals at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

Nails – White spots on nails indicate a mineral deficiency. The appearance of ridges, specifically, could indicate a lack of zinc.

Mouth – When your tongue is pale in color you could need more iron. A painful or burnt tongue could be your body’s way of telling you that you need more B vitamins, specifically B2 and B3.

Eyes – Dark circles are sometimes an indicator of needing more than just sleep. See a food allergy specialist to check for intolerances and foods you may need to steer clear of. Some other vitamins you could need are vitamin D for nearsightedness and vitamin A for poor night vision.

Hair – Suffering from hair loss? Try taking a Biotin supplement. Dry hair and dandruff are also signs you need some more vitamin A and omega-3s.

Skin – Irritations and skin problems are usually signs that there are issues going on inside the body. Alleviate dry skin with vitamins A and E. If you suffer from acne during “that time of the month”, try a B6 supplement.

Joint Pain – It can be very defeating when you no longer can perform day-to-day activities due to joint pain. Try magnesium for cramping and twitching. Vitamin B1 and B6 are very useful swelling and twitching. Try a B12 supplement to combat joint numbness.

Brain Fog – Do you have trouble focusing? Are you feeling tired or rundown all the time? You might be experiencing the phenomenon known as “brain fog”. Fortunately, there are some vitamins that can help stave off its effects. A complex of B vitamins can help a body’s response to stress. Vitamin C and zinc have been shown to improve mood disorders and anxiety.

Pass the Papaya

Help combat the body’s natural inclination to slow enzyme production with the help of Super Papaya Enzyme Plus. Since we naturally produce enzymes at different levels, some of us may digest proteins well, but not carbohydrates, or vice versa. Enzymes help convert food into nutrients the body can absorb, making them available for energy needs, cell growth and other vital functions. There are many different types of digestive enzymes with specific roles. For example, papaya helps digest protein while amylase helps digest carbohydrates. Super Papaya Enzyme Plus provides you with delicious papaya fruit flavor fortified with well-known enzymes to encourage proper nutrient absorption and aid in digestion.

Get Good Gut Flora

American Health Acidophilus Chewable With Bifidus Natural Strawberrry Flavor helps to stimulate the beneficial bacteria in the digestive and intestinal tracts, encourages proper nutrient absorption and promotes immune health.

4 Supplements for Eye Health

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Supplements,Vitamins and Minerals at 10:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Healthy eyes are so important to all of us but it’s not easy to prevent the slow degradation of the eyes. In order to avoid this problem, it is essential to consume certain nutritional and dietary supplements for eye health, so here’s a list of 4 supplements for eye health.

1. Lutein: a highly essential supplements for eye health, lutein forms a protective shield and prevents formation of cataracts as well as macular degeneration in the eyes. This antioxidant is the primary carotenoid present in the central area of the retina called the macula. People with high intakes of the carotenoid lutein have been reported to be at a low risk for cataracts. Lutein also protects the retina from damage caused by sunlight and studies have shown that supplementation can be helpful to people with both early and advanced stages of the disease.

2. Vitamin A: required in large doses to ensure proper functioning of the retina, deficiency of vitamin A may cause ocular disorders like xeropthalmia or night blindness. Often recommend by doctors to correct a deficiency, vitamin A also plays a vital role in preventing dryness in the eyes.

3. Beta Carotene: directly related to vitamin A, supplementation of beta-carotene helps the body convert into vitamin A, correcting such a deficiency and improving vision and related issues such as night blindness. Additionally, studies have shown that long-term beta-carotene supplementation slowed the loss of cognitive function in middle-aged healthy males.

4. Selenium: this essential mineral is a good source of natural antioxidants and can be a useful supplement to maintain good eye health. Found in many multivitamins and multimineral products, selenium is known to regulate thyroid and prevent thyroid eye disease, also know known as Graves’ disease, a condition that can affect your eyes.

5 Reasons To Take L- Theanine

Filed Under: Supplements at 8:00 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea, which when taken on its own may have some wildly useful medical applications. Most of the benefits surround the tranquil and relaxing affects of this amino acid. This amino acid has been found to be useful for certain conditions including anxiety, hypertension, and insomnia and even preventing dementia and Alzheimer’s. While most of the spotlight is commonly on green tea, today we are going to talk about the benefits of theanine.

One third of Americans report some form of insomnia. Whether it’s difficulty in falling asleep or difficulty in maintaining sleep through out the night. In a recent article researchers found that adding theanine to the nighttime routine of boys with ADHD actually improved some aspects of sleep quality.  Specifically this included a higher sleep percentage, improved sleep efficiency, as well as less activity during the sleep (less time awake after sleep onset).  Theanine is a safe product you can add to your night time routine to help improve your sleep quality.  However, the benefits don’t stop here.

Another very serious and unfortunately common condition is anxiety. People are always looking for something to help calm their nerves. Whether it is a pharmaceutical agent or an alternative supplement, herb, etc.  A very interesting article that I came across looked at the acute effects of L-theanine in comparison to Alprazolam (Xanax) on anticipatory anxiety in humans. The results of this double blind placebo controlled study showed some evidence for relaxing effects of L-theanine during the baseline condition while Alprazolam did not exert any anxiolytic effects in comparison with the placebo on any of the measures during the relaxed state. Unfortunately neither L-theanine nor alprazolam had any effects during the experimentally induced anxiety state.

One last topic to discuss is theanine’s role in Alzheimer’s prevention. There is no doubt that the medical field is always looking to add to the list of ways to assist in preventing the onset of dementia. L-theanine just may be one ingredient that they want to add to that list. One of the major pathological mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease is amyloid beta induced neurotoxicity. Now you may be saying what is that? For the purpose of this discussion all you need to know is that it is a major cause for Alzheimer’s. What this article found is that theanine reduced this neurotoxicity and may be useful in the prevention of AD.

With all of the benefits of theanine it is hard to argue adding it into your daily regimen. Shop LuckyVitamin for all of your theanine needs. Remember to always check with your health care practitioner before starting supplements.

What’s New? Qunol

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

Coenzyme Q10 is one of the most important nutrients to maintain good health and Lucky Vitamin is happy to introduce a top-quality brand of CoQ10 supplements: Qunol.

Qunol offers the original coenzyme Q10 supplement that is proven to be both 100% water and fat soluble. In fact, studies show that Qunol Ultra CoQ10 is 300% more absorbent than regular CoQ10, helping you achieve the recommended CoQ10 blood concentration in just weeks, not months like other regular CoQ10 products. Seven separate peer-reviewed and published clinical studies have shown the proprietary patented technology in Qunol gives it the highest absorption of all CoQ10 supplements.

Qunol is made with the highest quality all-natural coenzyme Q10 instead of the synthetic versions like many competing brands, which guarantees the best absorption and highest bio-availability. The solubilized CoQ10 in Qunol is the choice of many physicians, pharmacists, nutritionists and health care practitioners. Qunol CoQ10 supplements support heart health, boost cellular energy and play an important role as a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals. Research has shown that supplementing with CoQ10 is essential to restoring optimum CoQ10 levels in people who take cholesterol-lowering statin drugs that have been shown to deplete coenzyme Q10 levels in the body. Our bodies produce this vitamin-like nutrient naturally but this process slows with age and optimal levels are further reduced by cholesterol lowering statin drugs.

Testosterone…What You Need to Know

Filed Under: Men's Health,Supplements at 5:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

The testosterone debate never ends. Rightfully so. Testosterone is a major hormone in every men’s life impacting health, fertility, physical activity, confidence, self-esteem and many other conditions. Testosterone levels decline with age, known as hypogonadism, causing a variety of health problems. In order to help you understand a little more about it, here’s a list of what you need to know about testosterone.

1. Overweight Affects Testosterone Levels

Extra body weight has a significant impact on testosterone levels. The extra fat uses testosterone, removing if from the blood and reducing energy and libido. Fat around the abdomen is believed to extract the most testosterone, so make sure to exercise and stay lean and fit, or, at least, not too fat.

2. Low Testosterone Affect All Ages

Yes, it’s more common as men age, but a drop in testosterone levels can start as early as men in their 20s as well as teenagers. Common symptoms for a drop in testosterone include feeling tired, weak, and depressed but the most common and noticeable one is decline in sex drive.

3. Testosterone Treatment

Testosterone supplements can be an excellent option for men of any age who have below-normal levels. Regular supplementation can avoid a variety of health issues such as osteoporosis and heart disease.

4. Exercise Helps

Moderate exercise helps but isn’t the only way to fix the problem. Exercising can boost testosterone levels to a certain degree, preventing extra fat, as discussed above, an issue to maintain healthy levels. Low testosterone makes it harder to exercise on a regular basis due to lack of energy and stamina which can lead to a vicious cycle of inactivity and reduced hormone levels.

Does Your Pet Need Joint Supplements?

Filed Under: Pet Care,Supplements at 7:30 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Joint pain can really impact your pets’ quality of life. Arthritis is a common joint issue for dogs and cats normally affecting hips and elbows. Joint supplements developed specifically for pets can be very helpful to minimize the pain and promote a better life for your pet.

Just like in humans, pets feel pain in the joints when production of the fluid filling the space between the bones is low or not lubricating the joints properly. Aging is the problem as, just like us once again, joint fluid production decreases with the years creating more friction between the bones. Each bony end is covered in a smooth cartilage, which protects the joint from damage. Articular cartilage contains a high concentration of nerve fibers, and when anything touches the cartilage, your pets will feel pain. So, it is essential to maintain enough fluid around the cartilage to prevent joint issues.

Natural joint supplements designed specifically for pets can be a great way to provide nutrients to minimize the lack of this fluid. The majority of products contain three nutrients that can help lubricate your dog’s joint fluid and can even repair damaged joint cartilage. Glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid are found in a good number of joint supplements for humans as well as pets.

Pets supplements are available in chewable tablets, wafers or snack, treats making it easier for your pets to absorb its contents. Lucky Vitamin is now having a special Natural Pet Sale. Click here to check out all the products of this very special offer.
