Improve Your Sleep with Valerian

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Herbs,Supplements at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

A recent study shows that nearly 60% of Americans say that they experience a sleep problem every night. The most common issues reported were difficulty falling asleep, waking up one or more times during the course of the night, and not getting enough sleep on a regular basis.

Sleep aids supplements have been helping people for years and some of the most popular products may help improve overall sleep. For example, valerian supplements have shown the ability to improve the quality of sleep as well reduced the average time to fall asleep.

Valerian root (Valeriana officinalis) is an herb that has been used as a sleeping aid for more than 1,000 years. Studies have concluded that valerian root supplements may work just as well as a prescription sleeping pill for insomnia. Researchers think that valerian works due to a combination of compounds. The herb seems to have a calming effect on the central nervous system.

Valerian is available in a variety of different forms: tablets, capsules, liquid extracts, and teas. Herbal experts recommend drinking valerian tea at bedtime to help you drop off to sleep. Valerian supplements may vary in potency and most products are considered generally safe when used as directed. Occasionally it might cause headache, insomnia or vivid dreams. Valerian has been used safely in human studies for up to 28 days but as with other sleeping pills, its effectiveness may wear off over time. Avoid valerian when operating dangerous machinery or during pregnancy. Talk with your doctor before start taking valerian.

How To Choose An Omega-3 Fish Oil

Filed Under: Announcements & News,General Wellness & Wellbeing,Supplements at 11:25 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BENEFITS TO CONSIDER - Taking fish oil has numerous benefits and plays an important role in health. That’s because the omega-3 in fish is high in two essential fatty acids crucial to our health: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA.)

EPA is the most beneficial oil and is good for your joints, skin and heart. It can lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, decrease your risk for cardiovascular disease, and can even aid in fighting off allergies. Ours brains are highly dependent on DHA and is needed for neuronal and cognitive development in children. It has also been associated with maintaining positive moods and helping depression.

HOW TO READ THE LABEL – When it comes to reading your fish oil label, it is important that you look at the dosage of EPA compared to DHA. Many supplements vary in the ratio of EPA and DHA that they contain. It is best to buy supplements which list the actual dosage of both EPA and DHA. Since EPA is more beneficial, you want a supplement that contains more EPA than DHA.

POTENCY CONSIDERATIONS - The recommended dosage of fish oil can vary. For healthy adults, a combined daily total of 500 milligrams (mg) EPA + DHA is recommended. Once you buy your fish oil supplement, check the label carefully to see if it recommends refrigeration to prevent spoiling. In most cases, you will want to store your fish oil in the refrigerator after opening to help ensure freshness.

NOT ALL FISH OILS ARE CREATED EQUAL - When shopping for fish oil, purity is key. Supplements should be free from rancidity, PCB’s, mercury, dioxin and other chemicals. To minimize contaminants in an unrefined supplement, it’s best to find a fish oil made from small oily fish like anchovy, sardines or mackerel.

Other things to look for:

  • Oil was extracted using cold press techinique
  • Supplement was molecularly distilled
  • Wild-caught & not farm-raised fish
  • Companies that follow Good Manufacturing Practices

Sniff and Sneeze No More

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Herbs,Supplements at 9:25 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Winter may finally be coming to an end and spring is quickly approaching. The end of winter means warmer weather, longer days, and the beautiful flowers of spring. However, with these flowers come the allergens associated with them.  Each year, 35 million Americans fall prey to seasonal allergic rhinitis, more commonly known as hay fever. Today we are going to look at some natural alternatives to allergy relief.

An easy and effective treatment for seasonal allergies is Nasal Saline Irrigation. This therapy uses a salt and water solution to help flush out the nasal passages. By flushing out the nasal passages you remove the pollens and other allergens that can cause irritation and inflammation.  There are several different methods of irrigation.  These methods include: Neti Pots, Nasal Syringes, Saline Sprays, and many others. When using this therapy, it is imperative to make sure you use clean water.  It is recommended that you boil distilled or tap water and allow it to cool to room temperature before use.

Another well-known alternative treatment for seasonal allergies is Quercetin. Quercetin is a yellow crystalline pigment found in plants. This substance belongs to a group of plant pigments called flavonoids. Flavonoids, like that found in Quercetin, act as antioxidants. In a recent study, researchers found that Quercetin inhibited histamine by decreasing mast cell activity. Histamine is the major trigger for runny nose, itchy eyes, and other symptoms of allergies. Quercetin has been found to be most effective if taken before allergy season begins and continued throughout.

One final alternative treatment for allergies is Stinging Nettles (Urtia dioica). This herb acts in many of the same ways as prescription drugs on the market. It can regulate histamine and block inflammatory processes in the body. Stinging Nettles can be taken in a supplement form or drank as a tea. A study found in the Journal of Allergy showed that increasing omega-3 fatty acids and decreasing omega 6 fatty acids aided in the prevention of allergy symptoms.  This spring don’t fall hostage to your allergens; shop Lucky Vitamin for all your alternative treatments to allergens.

Spice Up Your Health with Turmeric

Filed Under: Herbs,Supplements at 12:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Curcumin, the main ingredient o turmeric spice, has been shown to possess anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties.  Studies about curcumin supplements have been conducted for years but the results of a new research have concluded that curcumin has great potential in the treatment of cancer and management of other diseases.

The new study conducted at Baylor University Medical Center found that curcumin may improve cancer treatment, both directly with its activity against cancer cells and indirectly by sensitizing cancer cells to the effect of chemotherapy. In a cancer preventative role, this specific type of curcumin called BCM-95 was also shown to reduce cellular DNA damage that can lead to cancer. The study involved colorectal cancer cells that were treated with either 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU), a common chemotherapeutic agent used for colorectal cancer, or a combination of 5-FU and curcumin. It’s important to remember that this type of curcumin has high absorption and inclusion of turmeric essential oil, and results may not apply to other forms of curcumin.

Curcumin contains several active components that target the ten causative factors which may promote the formation of cancer cells in the body. Combating just one of these factors can already give a person great chances of preventing cancer from forming, but curcumin can combat all ten of these causative factors.

“One of the problems with chemotherapy is that cancer cells can become resistant to its effects, so higher and higher doses of the chemo must be used. This results in a great deal of damage to healthy tissue and an increase in serious adverse effects. We wanted to see how curcumin might improve chemotherapy’s ability to kill cancer cells,” said Ajay Goel, Ph.D., one of the study’s authors at Baylor Research Institute.

More Benefits from Saw Palmetto

Filed Under: Herbs,Supplements at 1:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Saw_palmetto

Saw Palmetto has been one of the most popular herbal supplements to support prostate health. Multiple studies have shown that saw palmetto supplements are the leading natural treatment for BPH, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, and regular used of this herb has been shown to help keep symptoms in check.

Now, even better news. Recent research is discovering that saw palmetto may offer additional health benefits. A new study shows that saw palmetto supplements can be slightly to moderately effective for hair regrowth but the herb is usually not very effective if used alone. Although saw palmetto is widely used as an alternative natural treatment to prevent hair loss, it is not typically lauded for stimulating hair follicles or engendering regrowth. Reports show that saw palmetto can stop hair loss but new hair does not appear as a result of it. Some moderate growth of hair has been possible for people who use saw palmetto for hair regrowth in conjunction with other hair boosting botanicals or supplements.

For example, the combination of saw palmetto supplements with around 100 mg of beta-sitosterol may boost hair growth up to 60 percent according to a study. Researchers support theories that saw palmetto can block and slow baldness as some users claim to see a definite increase in the rate of hair growth, usually after three months of use.

High in beta-carotene, saw palmetto has proven effective in preventing baldness because the herb can successfully thwart the effects the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is responsible for male-patterned alopecia. DHT is an androgen that reduces the size of hair follicles, choking off new hair growth and causing hair to fall out. Daily intake of saw palmetto can lower the amounts of DHT being produced and absorbed by follicles on the scalp. The standard daily amount for effectiveness in arresting DHT-linked hair loss is 320 mg of the extract or 160 mg of saw palmetto powder.

Stronger Immune System with Oregano Oil

Filed Under: Herbs,Supplements at 3:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

If you are looking for something to boost your immune system, you may want to consider trying oregano oil supplements. Oregano oil is an extract from the oregano plant, yes the same herb often used in cooking, pizzas, pastas, and breads. Oregano oil supplements are sourced from wild-crafted true oregano (Origanum vulgare), an aromatic herb originally from the Mediterranean region and can not only enhance your immune system but also offer some additional health benefits.

Oregano oil is well-known for enhancing the immune system. This natural oil is a potent anti-fungal agent that has similar germ-killing properties as various antibiotics and is capable of destroying resistant fungal forms. Supplementation has been tested and proved against many different types of infection to exert a high degree of anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, anti-viral and anti-bacterial actions. Moreover, regular intake of oregano oil supplements may provide additional benefits such as regulating the digestive system and aiding joint lubrication and restoring mobility.

Multiple studies have shown that oregano oil is high on antioxidant activity which is one of the most important factors for healthy digestion. Oregano oils thymol and caryacrol are believed to be the main sources of its benefits and regular intake may help cure mild stomach problems and regulate bowel movement.

Additionally, oil of oregano aids joint lubrication and restore mobility and may be an alternative for people struggling with products such as glucosamine and chondroitin. The high potency of oregano oil active substances can definitely improve joint health and reduce extreme pain, inflammation and stiffness of joint.

Healing and Recovery with Arnica

Filed Under: Homeopathy,Supplements at 1:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Pain relief products are available in many different forms but if you are looking for a natural and efficient way to minimize your pain, arnica products may be your best choice.

Arnica is an excellent product for healing and recovery of muscles as well as treating bruises, sprains and other minor injuries. Arnica can also be used in the treatment of muscular strains, wounds and swelling. Originally from Europe, arnica montana is a flowering plant that has been used medicinally in liniment and ointment preparations for over 200 years.

Found in several homeopathic products, topical arnica preparations have shown to act as an anti-inflammatory and assist normal healing processes by facilitating transport of blood and fluid accumulations through a dilating action of subcutaneous blood capillaries. It is considered by many specialists to be the best product for treatment in early stages of an injury when there is swelling. Arnica can be used immediately post workout when injury may occur due to poor stretching or muscle fatigue.

A recent study showed that arnica gel applied twice daily may reduce symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee. Additionally, another double-blind study reported that a combination of topical arnica ointment and oral homeopathic arnica tablets reduced pain in people recovering from hand surgery. Arnica montana contains arnica solution watered down hundreds of times to form a homeopathic ultra-dilution. Thousands of practitioners and patients swear by arnica’s remarkable curative powers, particularly in the treatment of swelling and bruising. Arnica homeopathic remedies are available in different potencies or dilutions.

Broccoli May Prevent Arthritis

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

Broccoli is considered by many people as a staple of health food. Often used as a figure to promote and display health diets, broccoli may provide even greater benefits than we thought. A recent study has discovered that a compound found in broccoli could be the key to preventing or slowing the progress of the most common form of arthritis.

The research led by the University of East Anglia in England shows that sulforaphane slows down the destruction of cartilage in joints associated with painful and often debilitating osteoarthritis. The study, which also examined human cartilage cells and cow cartilage tissue, was funded by medical research charity Arthritis Research UK, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council’s (BBSRC) Diet and Health Research Industry Club (DRINC) and The Dunhill Medical Trust.

Sulforaphane is released when eating cruciferous vegetables such as Brussels sprouts and cabbage, but particularly broccoli. Previous research has suggested that sulforaphane has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties, but this is the first major study into its effects on joint health. The researchers discovered that sulforaphane blocks the enzymes that cause joint destruction by stopping a key molecule known to cause inflammation.

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease affecting the hands, feet, spine, hips and knees in particular. Aging and obesity are the most common contributors to the condition and there is no cure or effective treatment for the disease other than joint replacement or pain relief, which is often inadequate.

Arthritis Research UK’s medical director Prof Alan Silman said: “This is an interesting study with promising results as it suggests that a common vegetable, broccoli, might have health benefits for people with osteoarthritis and even possibly protect people from developing the disease in the first place.
