Spring Cleaning

Filed Under: Environment,Natural Cleaning Aids at 1:41 pm | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every April, we start the age-old process of spring cleaning our houses.  Some of us may go into our sheds and other storage sites to take out our patio furniture. The decks need wiping and the grills need scrubbing, but have you ever considered what all the chemicals in your cleaning products can do to your health? The chemicals in these cleaning products damage our skin, cause headaches, lead to irritation of our eyes and airways, and if ingested/inhaled can even lead to death.  Take for instance, the warning on a Glade Air Freshener: “Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents can be harmful or fatal.” Yikes! Let’s take a look at some of the common chemicals found in these and other similar cleaning products.

Products such as aerosol sprays, cleansers, air-fresheners, and disinfectants emit what are called volatile organic compounds. VOC’s are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors. These compounds have been found to have numerous amounts of health effects ranging from eye, nose, and throat irritation to even cancer. Petroleum distillate is a common chemical that you might find in your cleaning products. This hydrocarbon is found in certain furniture polishes, paint solvents, adhesives, and automotive chemicals.  One other chemical you should be wary of is phthalates. They are used to stabilize synthetic perfumes, so if a cleaning product says “fragrance” it most likely contains phthalates.

There are many other chemicals found in your household cleaning products than what has been listed here. It is important to read the labels and research whether or not the company is truly using “natural” ingredients. The government only requires companies to list “chemicals of known concern” on their labels. In 2012, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) released their cleaning products hall of shame list which revealed the household cleaning products that are the most dangerous and should be avoided.

Lucky Vitamin is proud to carry various brands of cleaning products that are free of volatile organic compounds, phthalates, petroleum distillate, and other potentially harmful and deadly chemicals. For example, a safer alternative to air fresheners are products such as Aura Cacia aromatherapy mist which only contains water and various essential oils. Also, shop Mrs. Meyers non-aerosol room freshners. This spring time don’t let the fear of what’s in your cleaning aids stop you from making your house sparkle like it should.

Fat-Burning Foods

Filed Under: Diet & Weight Loss,Health Foods at 5:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Everyone should know that exercising regularly and a well-balanced diet are essential to a successful weight-loss diet, but did you know that some foods may actually help you with the fat burning factor?

That’s right. Some foods have the ability to speed up your metabolism and, therefore, boost the body’s ability to burn fat. For example, studies have shown that apples, particularly green, Granny Smith apples, are one of these fat-burning foods. Apples are high in pectin, which binds with water and limits the amount of fat your cells can absorb. Also high in fiber, apples may make you feel full reducing the amount of food you eat. Eating an apple before a meal may help reducing the total calories of the meal. Moreover, recent research suggests that the antioxidants in apples appear to prevent metabolic syndrome, the combination of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and prediabetes that tends to accompany thickening around the waist.

If you don’t like apples, how about pine nuts? Studies have concluded that pine nuts contain heart-healthy fatty acids which have been shown to prevent the formation of belly fat. Pine nuts are rich in pinolenic acid and have been found to boost levels of ghrelin, which signals your brain that you’re full. When ghrelin levels are high, not only do you not feel hungry, you’re more able to resist cravings.

Oats are another healthy, whole grain option of fat-burning foods.  Oats are high in soluble fiber and may be able to reduce cholesterol and blood fat. They’re also high on what nutritionists call the “satiety index,” meaning oats have tremendous power to make you feel full.

Lastly, fat-burning supplements can help your weight loss diet. Click here to check our entire selection of top quality fat burners.

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.

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.
