More about Ayurveda

As individuals we are responsible for living a life based on principles, morality and humanitarian service. In doing so we are able to achieve physical and emotional detachment and spiritual liberation. This enables us to merge and become one with Supreme Consciousness. According to Ayurveda, there are three principal goals which are attributed to our existence.

These three simple yet basic goals are:

Dharma: Art of doing and being dutiful to self and others in a selfless manner.

Artha: Accumulation of possessions for self needs and to fulfill service and not selfish wants.

Kama: Ability to satisfy self needs with simple possessions.

Magnificent Blueberries

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

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.

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.
