3 Natural Supplements to Improve Memory

Filed Under: Herbs,Mental Wellbeing,Supplements at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

If you are having memory problems, taking supplements can be helpful but the question remains: which natural supplements are the most effective? Vitamin B12 and fish oil supplements are the top-selling memory products but if you are looking for another option or just a little extra, check out these three natural supplements to boost your memory.

1. Ginkgo Biloba

One of the most popular natural supplements for memory is ginkgo biloba. Studies have concluded that ginkgo biloba may enhance cognitive performance in healthy older adults as well as people experiencing cognitive decline. The world’s oldest living species of tree, ginkgo trees can live up 1,000 years and grow most predominantly in the southern and eastern United States, southern France, China, and Korea.

2. Panax Ginseng

Often used in combination with ginkgo, Panax ginseng is also known as Asian Ginseng and has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. This remarkable supplement has the ability to improve memory, promote calmness, and reduce fatigue. Research suggests that taking 500 mg twice a day can improve cognitive performance in healthy adults.

3. Bacopa

Another herb commonly used in memory supplements, bacopa monnieri has been used for centuries to enhance long term memory, improve learning, and overall cognitive performance. This herb contains anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and sedative properties, with the active ingredients responsible for these effects including sulfhydryl and polyphenol, compounds that lessen oxidative stress.

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.

4 Essential Supplements for Bone Health

Filed Under: Supplements,Vitamins and Minerals at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

One of the most efficient ways to help prevent osteoporosis, reduce pain from osteoarthritis or just maintain healthy cartilage, bone health supplements are very helpful to many people. So, if you are looking to bone up on nutrients but are not sure about the ingredients you should be looking for, here are 4 essential supplements for bone health.

1. Calcium: no surprise here. Everyone knowns calcium builds strong bones and most people need about 1000 mg to 1200 mg a day of this important mineral. A primary nutrient for bone health, around 98% of all calcium in the body is stored in the bones.  Calcium is necessary to keep the entire body from becoming too acidic. So, if your calcium is low, the body will instinctively pull it from your bones to stay alive.

2. Vitamin D: another well-known bone supplement, vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium. The recommended intake should be at least 400 IU, up to 600 IU of vitamin D daily for better bone health. It’s also well-known that the human body makes vitamin D when skin is exposed to sunlight and, therefore, people who spend too much time indoors, elderly, and anyone living in areas with low sun exposure during the winter months should considered vitamin D supplementation.

3. Magnesium: critical to the skeletal system, around 400 mg of magnesium should be sufficient to maintain optimal bone health. Magnesium supplementation may be hard on the stomach, so choose magnesium citrate instead of magnesium chloride, carbonate or oxide.

4. Silica: this trace mineral regenerates body infrastructure including the skeleton, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, connective tissue, skin, hair and nails. Levels of silica in the body decrease with age and are needed in larger quantity by seniors.

3 Natural Ways to Battle Cholesterol

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Supplements at 3:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

A well-balanced diet and exercise are proven ways to reduce cholesterol but another natural way can really make a difference in your treatment. Natural products for cholesterol have been one of the most popular supplements for many years for a simple reason: they are efficient. If you are not familiar with these, here are 3 natural ways to battle cholesterol.

1. Red Yeast Rice

Red yeast rice has been a hot-selling item for cholesterol for many years. This all-natural product has been tested in many different ways and has been shown to lower cholesterol as well as a statin drug. Most red yeast rice supplements are similar to the ones used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. A number of pharmaceutical drugs contain the exact same ingredient, red yeast rice, in their formulations.

2. Omega-3 Supplements

Omega-3 supplements are good for overall health but they are also a great way to regulate cholesterol. The popular “fish-oil” offers a combination of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), the two most beneficial types of omega-3 fats. Doctors recommend 1000mg a day and you can choose from softgel products as well as the liquid form. A good tip: look for enteric-coated products which are designed to dissolve in the intestines instead of the stomach, avoiding the unpleasant fishy burps.

3. Policosanol

Rounding up our list, we present you policosanol. Made from sugar cane, this all-natural supplement has been known to be effective in lowering cholesterol as well as maintaining normal HDL and LDL cholesterol levels. Policosanol has powerful antioxidant capabilities that inhibit oxidation of cholesterol. The long-chain alcohols found in policosanol are present in many foods of plant origin but supplemental policosanol is typically extracted from sugar cane or beeswax.

5 Sources of Plant Protein

Filed Under: Health Foods,Supplements at 11:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Protein is one of the basic building blocks of life. Every whole food contains protein so you do have a number of options to choose from when it comes to creating a balanced diet with the right percentage of protein for your body. If you want to avoid animal foods, you still have plenty of vegetarian choices. So, here is a list of 5 sources of plant protein:

1. Peas

Peas are an excellent source of plant protein and also provide other nutrients such as iron, zinc, folate, potassium, and dietary fiber. Split peas, black-eyed peas, and chickpeas are available in dry, canned, and frozen forms. Additionally, pea protein is high in glutamic acid, which helps convert carbs into energy, avoiding them to be stored as fat.

2. Brown Rice

Rice is mostly composed of carbohydrate but it contains a small amount of protein, which is extracted to create brown rice protein. Brown rice protein is hypo-allergic and easily digested, making it an excellent alternative for anyone with a sensitive stomach or allergies to soy or dairy.

3. Hemp

Hemp contains nearly 50 percent protein as well as 20 amino acids including the 9 essential amino acids our body cannot produce, making it one of the few plant-based complete protein sources. In addition, hemp has the perfect ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 (3:1), the most abundant source of EFAs (essential fatty acids), and a rich source of phytonutrients, antioxidants, and plant sterols.

4. Quinoa

Quinoa contains more than 8 grams of protein per cup including all nine essential amino acids that the body needs for growth and repair, but cannot produce on its own. Technically a seed, quinoa can be served with brown sugar and fruit as a hot breakfast cereal, or added to soups or salads

5. Soy

Considered by many as the perfect replacement, soy protein contains all the amino acids gained from eating meat, which are an important part of reducing fat and maintaining healthy muscles. These amino acids are also an integral part of insulin production in the body. Studies have shown that soy protein helps reduce LDL cholesterol as well as the risk of heart disease.

10 Ways to Avoid the Winter Blues

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

Looking for some ways to boost your mood and motivation even on the darkest of chilly days this winter? We present you 10 ways to avoid the winter blues this season.

1. Take Vitamin D supplements

Increasing your vitamin D intake should be a priority in the winter months. The body reserves of this immune-boosting vitamin fall dangerously low at this time of the year. Taking vitamin D supplements can be very helpful to compensate the lack of sun exposure, one of the best ways to produce vitamin D.

2. Spend Time Outside

Try to enjoy the snow and the cold weather instead of always avoiding it. Ice-skating, snowboarding and sledding are fun activities you may want to give a try this winter. If you are not into winter action, take some pictures as snow and ice can make wonderful stages for beautiful photos.

3. Exercise

No matter the time of the year, exercising is always great! Exercise helps your mind by releasing those feel good chemicals that improve your mood. One of the best ways to fight off depression and stay in shape, exercising in the winter can be done either indoor or, for the braves ones, outdoors.

4.Aromatherapy

For many people, aromatherapy is the best way to lift your spirits. Smells can be a big source of comfort and evoke memories of happier times. Studies have shown that aromatherapy can be an effective supplementary treatment for people with depressive symptoms.

5. Be Social

Stay social during the winter months. Invite family and friends over, go for walks, or start a group activity. These are some of the great ways to stay “connected” and happy during the cold days.

6. Enjoy Hibernation

Why not? One of the best ways to stay happy during the winter is enjoying “hibernation”. Stay home, watch movies, read a book, eat some popcorn, or drink hot chocolate, that’s just a few ideas to help you enjoy the “indoors”.

7. Get More Lights in Your Home

In some northern places, lack of light during the winter has been linked to depression. With shorter days and shorter sunlight, lighting up your home can be helpful to keep your mood and energy up.

8. Relax

Spending time doing nothing can also help. Catch up on your sleep, take a long bath, or relax for a whole morning or a whole day if you can. Try yoga to alleviate stress and leave you with a calm energy. Relaxation is one of the best ways to avoid winter blues.

9. Go on a Trip

Travelling is always fun. Going from a cold place to a warmer paradise makes it even more fun. Enjoying a winter trip, even if it’s a short weekend one, can be a wonderful way to stay happy.

10. Sleep Well

People naturally want to sleep a little bit more during the winter. Try to catch up with your sleep when it’s cold outside. Aim for 7-8 hours each night, and try to keep your bedtime and waking time consistent, normalizing sleeping patters and getting more daily energy.

8 Signs it’s Time for a Detox

Filed Under: Detoxification and Cleansing,Supplements at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

New year, new life. One of the best ways to kick off 2015 in a healthy style is to do a body detox. If you still don’t have a good reason for a detox, here’s a list of 8 signs it’s time for a detox.

1. Remove Toxicity:

Removing toxins from your body is the main reason for a detox. We get toxins not only from processed foods and food additives but also from stress, chemicals and other environmental ways. A detox program can help removing the candida overgrowth from the intestinal tract and will cleanse the blood, lymph fluid and all major organs of toxic residue.

2. Energy Booster

Feeling constant fatigue, having no energy, and poor memory are good signs your body may need a detox. Getting rid of toxicity can help your body utilize energy towards repair and regeneration of damaged cells. By doing this, your body is able to recharge and rebalanced itself, resulting in more energy and vitality.

3. Improve Digestion

Removing toxins from your body can significantly help to improve digestion. Detox programs are known to help improving absorption of foods and nutrients, so you can actually get more vitamins and minerals from the food you eat.

4. Immune System Enhancer

A proper detox program can definitely help strengthening the immune system. Alkalizing the entire body plays a significant role on how your body reacts to adversity. With a stronger immune system, you are less likely to get sick and ore likely to prevent health problems.

5. De-Stress

Detox can be an excellent way to de-stress. Too much stress disrupts the production of three main hormones: serotonin, responsible for regulating your sleep, noradrenaline, related to your daily energy level, and dopamine, responsible for making you feel happiness and pleasure.

6. Prevent Disease and illness

Detoxing your body can help prevent disease and illness. With less toxins in your system, you should be able to enhance your physical health, restoring your internal environment which in combination with strengthening the immune system can certainly prevent the development of disease or illnesses.

7. Remove Parasites and Worms

Most parasites and worms are ingested from eating meat, raw fish, and contaminated soil or water. A good detoxification program will eliminate many harmful pathogens, bacteria, worms and parasites not only from the colon but also from other areas of the body.

8. Reduce Body Fat

Weight loss? Yes, a whole body detox is one of the best ways to eliminate excess body weight. An ideal detox protocol will help to eliminate toxins from the fat cells, flush the system of impurities and reduce cortisol levels, the hormone responsible for abdominal fat.
