Easy Ways to Prevent Fall Allergies

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

Summer is almost over. With less pollen in the air, summer allergies are almost done but it’s now time to prepare to prevent fall allergies.

Fall allergens like ragweed, mold and dust remain a problem for many people. Ragweed is the biggest allergy trigger in the fall. This yellow-flowering weed typically begins pollinating in August, affecting people as its pollen can travel for hundreds of miles with the wind. Mold allergies are also common as its spores can easily get airborne. Mold thrives in damp areas such as piles of leaves in yards and streets. Dust mites are a common indoor allergen and continue to make their way into your nose during the fall.

Runny nose, sneezing and itchy eyes are the most common symptoms of fall allergies, which are triggered when foreign invaders enter the nose and the immune system mistakenly releases antibodies, which attack the allergens, leading to the release of chemicals called histamines, and triggering runny nose and itchy eyes.

Boosting your immune system is one of the best ways to prevent fall allergies. Immune system supplements can strengthen the body’s defenses but there are a few easy ways for keeping these triggers at bay in your home to ensure that you are comfortable during the fall allergy season.

Cleaning is a must. Keep your house and work place clean and free of dust can make a big difference if you suffer from allergies. Vacuuming and dusting should be a priority in the fall.  Try to reduce the amount of mold by cleaning your bathrooms regularly as well as your bathroom windows and walls. Use a mix of water and bleach to kill mold and bacteria, and then turn on the fan to circulate air. Don’t forget to air out your home. Check local allergy forecast before you open the windows and avoid peak allergy hours.

What’s New? Buggy Love

Filed Under: Environment,Natural Cleaning Aids at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin is happy to introduce another eco-friend brand of cleaning products to our customers: Buggy Love.

Buggy Love products are created to protect our children, defend our planet and improve our world. The company is committed to changing the landscape of the cleaning products’ industry and wants to ensure everyone can understand the value and difference between organic and natural products.

Buggy Love offers a unique line of natural cleaners created with only the finest ingredients this world can offer. The company started as a response to the blatant industry “green washing” and misleading labeling practices. Buggy Love has refused the use of logos on labels that have nothing to do with the authentic, sustainable principals of organic growing and processing methodologies. Take the time to see past the logos, friendly packaging and clever wording of conventional products. Buggy Love happily challenge all customers to compare labels to any regular “Natural” “Eco-Friendly” “Bio-degradable” or “Green” cleaner on the market.

Any company that wishes to be genuinely “organic” must first strive to go back to nature and discover what it is to be sustainable. Observe systems that naturally self-perpetuate and harness the pure qualities of non-chemical treated life to achieve results naturally. Being “organic” also demands considerations for fair trade, social justice, vegetarian/vegan, biodynamic, permaculture, transitional organic and ethical wild-crafting sustainable and ethical methodologies.

“Natural” products and brands, though safer than the harsh alternatives, still contain many of the toxins and harmful ingredients. This so-called “green wash” marketing is often misleading consumers to invest in products that still contain levels of toxins. Buggy Love will not compromise on the quality of any ingredient or substitute them for cheaper chemicals in order to lower costs or improve margins. Additionally, the company never uses the potentially carcinogenic preservatives parabens or sulfates in any products.

Cashews: Healthy, Delicious Snacks

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Health Foods at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

One of the best ways to feel good about snacking is when you find out that your favorite snack offers multiple health benefits. So, if you like cashews, we have good news for you.

A recent study shows that regular consumption of cashews can be beneficial for healthy muscles and nerves as it contains good levels of magnesium, a vital mineral for the healthy development of bones, muscles, tissues, and organs of the body. Magnesium is known to maintain proper nerve function and keep the bones strong. A deficiency of magnesium alters the metabolism of calcium and the hormones responsible for its regulation.

Considered a “super nut”, cashews are very nutritious and a powerhouse of proteins and essential minerals including copper, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. Cashews also contains vitamins such as C, B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B-6, folate, E (alpha-tocopherol) and vitamin K (phylloquinone). These tropical nuts are a source of oleic acid and provide a good quantity of monounsaturated fat and low amounts of polyunsaturated fats with no harmful cholesterol, if consumed appropriately. Additionally, cashews are a good source of healthy dietary fats, which are essential for our body to absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K and produce fatty acids that are vital for the development of the brain and blood clotting.

Additional health benefits of cashews include a healthy heart and relief from diabetes. By offering antioxidant defenses, these delicious nuts also aid in the formation of red blood cells. Cashews provide phosphorous, which is essential for the healthy development of teeth and bones. Lastly, cashews may help prevent anemia as they are a good source of iron which is vital for carrying oxygen around the body and aids in the functioning of enzymes and the immune system.

What’s New? MCT Lean

Filed Under: Diet & Weight Loss,Sports Nutrition,Supplements at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin is presenting another top-quality brand of weight-loss products to our customers: MCT Lean.

MCT Lean offers scientifically researched plant-based dietary supplements and functional foods from naturally cultivated ingredients aimed at keeping you in top physical form and helping you achieve a sense of complete wellbeing and optimal health. Whether you want to lose weight, build muscle, increase energy, or just live a healthier life, MCT Lean has the ultimate fuel product to help you achieving your goals.

MCT Lean believes “fats” get a bad reputation and for the most part, deservedly so. However, not all fats are the same and MCT Lean has found extreme value in one particular fat: medium chain triglycerides, or MCTs.

MCTs are the premium fuel for your body’s everyday functions and likely the best fuel for life. MCTs don’t behave like other fats as it is chemically structured to produce energy, not body fat. In fact, MCTs are hailed as the all-natural answer to eliminating stubborn body fat. The Dr. Oz show had a very interesting segment on the MCTs, classifying it as one of Dr. Oz’s top three “fat burner” supplements.

The typical Western diet is largely composed of long chain triglycerides (LCTs), typically consumed in processed vegetable oils such as canola, soy, and safflower. In excess, LCTs acts as the building blocks of stubborn body fat. Unlike LCTs, MCTs are primarily used for energy production and rarely ever stored as fat. In addition, MCTs promote ketones, an alternative power source which can become the main energy source when you eat a diet low in carbs and high in healthful fat. MCT Lean uses these MCTs as the foundation for creating the highest quality plant-based dietary supplements and functional foods to support those striving to live an active, nutritious lifestyle.

Go Red: Women Heart Disease

Filed Under: Supplements,Women's Health at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, killing approximately 400.000 women per year, which represents one in every four female deaths. Heart disease is sometimes thought of as a “man’s disease” but it is important to know that about the same number of women and men die each year of cardiovascular disease.

Risk factors such as smoking, obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes are spreading among women across the country. Complicating matters, women with heart disease often have different symptoms than men, such as back or jaw pain instead of the common crushing chest pain men often describe as a first symptom. Additionally, according to doctors, women are also more likely to deny the problem.

Awareness of heart disease among women is gradually rising and the American Heart Association Go Red for Women campaign is an excellent way to raise awareness and help women across the country.

Go Red For Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges them to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. It also gives them the tools they need to lead a heart healthy life.

The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest, largest voluntary organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular diseases and stroke. It works to improve the lives of all Americans, providing public health education in a variety of ways. In 2010, it set a strategic goal of reducing death and disability from cardiovascular disease and strokes by 20 percent while improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent by the year 2020.

Sometimes summer fun isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. The hot and humid temps and afternoon downpours bring nasty insect bites, painful bumps and bruises as kids of all ages play outdoors, and troublesome indigestion from seaside picnics and spicy backyard barbecues. Make the most of the season by keeping some popular single homeopathic medicines in your medicine cabinet to help relieve conditions associated with these common summer activities.

Start with Apis mellifica and Ledum palustre. Apis relieves itchy eyes, swollen eyelids, and swollen, itchy, burning skin or lips caused by insect bites or allergies and relieved by cold compresses. Use Ledum for non-bleeding wounds as small as an insect bite. It also relieves swollen and itchy mosquito bites, especially when taken at dawn and dusk. These singles can be paired up with Boiron’s topical Calendula Gel for cool, soothing relief.

You’ll also want to relieve your aches and pains more naturally. Arnica montana is best known for its ability to relieve muscle pain and stiffness, swelling from injuries and bruising. Arnica has been used for centuries for its pain-relieving properties. Nux vomica is also another summer must-have. Nux is useful for gastrointestinal issues such as nausea and cramps from indigestion, especially after eating a lot of spicy food or drinking too much coffee or alcohol.

The Best Sweet Choice: Natural Sweeteners

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

The sugar debate never ends. From time to time, a new report suggests that sugar substitutes are not healthy and should be avoided. The term “sugar substitutes” is widely mentioned but not always properly used. Sugar substitutes can be any product that people use instead of sugar. The most common sugar subs are sweeteners which can be divided in two categories: artificial and natural.

Artificial sweeteners have been getting a variety of poor reviews in reports and studies, fading away in popularity, and can’t seem to overcome their sketchy made-in-the-lab connotations. On the other hand, natural sweeteners continue to grown in variety and popularity as have been labeled as a much healthier and overall better product.

Stevia, xylitol, and agave are just some of the popular names of natural sweeteners and if you are not yet familiar with these products, it’s very important that you check out the health benefits from this sugar substitutes. These sweeteners are derived from natural substances rather than synthesized like saccharin and aspartame and most of them are considered low-calorie.  Some of these natural sweeteners are relatively new, so they haven’t been studied as extensively as sugar and artificial substitutes have, but there is no doubt you are getting a product that is much better than any artificial sweeteners as well as conventional sugar.

The US Food and Drug Administration has reviewed provided data and considered most of these products to be generally recognized as safe. In fact, the food-safety watchdog group “Center for Science in the Public Interest” believes this new generation is probably safer than aspartame and saccharin, which it asserts could increase cancer risk. With the exception of agave syrup, the new natural sweeteners are very low-calorie or calorie-free.

Vitamin D Deficiency Could Double Alzheimer’s Risk

Filed Under: Announcements & News,Health Concerns & Ailments,Vitamins and Minerals at 11:21 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

In the largest study of its kind, researchers revealed that in older people, not getting enough vitamin D may double the risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The study was released August. 6, 2014, online issue of Neurology.

The study evaluated blood levels of vitamin D, which includes vitamin D from food, supplements and sun exposure. Dietary vitamin D is found in fatty fish such as salmon, tuna or mackerel and milk, eggs and cheese.

“We expected to find an association between low vitamin D levels and the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, but the results were surprising—we actually found that the association was twice as strong as we anticipated,” said study author David J. Llewellyn, PhD, of the University of Exeter Medical School in the United Kingdom.

The study evaluated 1,658 healthy people over the age of 65 without dementia and had their vitamin D blood levels tested. After an average of six years, 171 participants developed dementia and 102 had Alzheimer’s disease.

The results revealed people with low levels of vitamin D had a 53-percent increased risk of developing dementia and those who were severely deficient had a 125-percent increased risk compared to participants with normal levels of vitamin D.

Those with lower levels of vitamin D were nearly 70 percent more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease and those who had severe deficiency were over 120 percent more likely to develop the disease.

The results remained the same after researchers adjusted for other factors that could affect risk of dementia, such as smoking, alcohol consumption and education.
