The Natural Defense

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Supplements,Vitamins and Minerals at 8:00 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

With fall already here and the winter months rapidly approaching, the temperatures are going to start dropping.  This means sweaters, jeans and winter jackets are going to make the move from boxes to closets. This winter everyone is going to be looking for ways to boost their immune system and stay healthy. But you don’t need to worry; there are natural alternatives to help you save those sick days for when you really need to use them.

Probiotics are a great way to not only improve your digestive system, but also boost your overall health and well-being. These beneficial bacteria aid in the development of the intestinal cells, stimulate the maturation and development of immune system by aiding in the fight of pathogenic bacteria, detoxify the body, improve digestion and help to synthesize vitamins. Eighty percent of your immune system is found inside your digestive system, which means that a healthier gut equals a healthier you.

Vitamin D is one of the most talked about vitamins these days. It is a “powerhouse” supplement that has much more importance in the body than just aiding in the building of strong bones. This vitamin acts more like a hormone in the body by binding to different receptors. Vitamin D plays a critical role in your immune response by assisting your body in making well over 200 antimicrobial peptides which are necessary in fighting off a wide range of infections. Before starting supplementation, make sure to see your health care provider so they can check your vitamin D levels.

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has traditionally been known for its ability to boost immune system function. Because of its strong antiviral properties, it has long been used to treat colds and flu. Sambucol, an elderberry based natural remedy, was shown to be effective in vitro against 10 different strains of influenza virus. Another study showed that Sambucol had the ability to reduce flu symptoms down to 3-4 days. Don’t worry about giving this to children either; it’s safe, effective and taste delicious!

This fall start boosting your immune system naturally so you are ready to fight off all the bacteria and viruses this winter. Check out all of these great products and much more found at LuckyVitamin.com.

Amazing Body Oils

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

One of the best ways to keep your skin properly moisturized is to use body oils regularly. Not as popular as body lotions, body oils are an excellent alternative and offer additional benefits to keep your skin moisturized while relaxing your mind and improving your body’s overall health.

Body oils are smooth, thick and highly concentrated liquids that are usually clear in color and enhance the appearance and quality of skin. The best body oils are organic, free of chemicals and extracted from roots, fruits, flowers and leaves. Some people avoid using body oil because they believe oil and skin don’t mix, often leaving the body greasy. In fact, body oils actually enhance the quality of your skin because they soak quickly and deeply into skin to leave it moisturized for longer periods of time.

Massaging your skin with body oils may help to improve your overall health by reducing aches and pains and decreasing stress. Some body oils contain special blends of ingredients designed to target specific areas of your body. For example, some oils help to relieve upset stomachs while others improve circulation, alleviate pain in sore muscles and relieve stiff joints. Many of the benefits of body oils relate to their use in massage therapy. Body oils make it easier to rub and massage skin, causing less friction and discomfort when a masseuse manipulates your body tissue.

Additionally, body oils are perfect for Swedish massage techniques to calm the nervous system and increase nutritive circulation in the skin. In addition to helping alleviate everyday aches and pains, studies have shown that massage lessens stiffness and increases the function of joints for those suffering from osteoarthritis.

Lastly, body oils are more economical than lotions. This might seem contradictory because the best body oils are more expensive than lotions, but remember that a little body oil goes a long way and you used much less than lotion for each session, saving some money on the long run. You only need to use a little bit of oil to cover a lot of skin and moisturize skin effectively. While it might take several pumps of body lotion to quench your skin’s thirst, a tiny dollop of body oil will be sufficient in covering most of your body.

Nature’s Answer – Neem

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Herbs at 8:00 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

After reading an article last month about an incredible medicinal plant whose uses predate written records, I thought I needed to share some of the information I had learned. The medicinal properties of neem (Azadiracthaindica) have been known in India for over 4,000 years, yet most people have never heard of it.  A member of the Mahogany family, Meliaceae, neem is native to India and India’s subcontinent regions.

More than half of the world’s population still relies entirely on plants for medicines and neem is a great example of why they do so. This “jack of all trades” herb can be used for many different health conditions commonly seen today. Even more riveting is that almost all parts of the tree can be used, including the root, bark, resin, twigs leaves and more.  According to “The Medicinal Properties of Neem” the plant can be used to treat fatigue, coughs, fever, loss of appetite, worm infestations, chronic skin conditions as well as infections. The article also goes on to discuss one of the most important parts to the tree: the neem seed oil. This antimicrobial oil can be applied topically to fungal and bacterial skin infections.  Interestingly enough, the article also talks about the tree’s role in the treatment of cancer and other conditions.

The Importance of Magnesium for Brain Health

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

A new study suggests that magnesium levels are vital to brain health as population ages. The nutritional research concluded that magnesium deficiency in adults may play a more important role in cognitive impairment (CI), and more seriously, Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), than previously thought.

The results of the study suggest that elevation of brain magnesium through dietary intake of magnesium exerts substantial positive effects on brain, actually restoring aging brains to their youthful conditions. The study is the first to show a mechanism for reversing cognitive decline in advanced stage AD mice, and is also the first to show an effective long-term treatment in AD mice. More exciting, though, are the implications of this study for the potential for treating AD in humans. Researchers feel confident that magnesium threonate can help maintain healthy brain activity and has dramatic effects in preventing synapse loss and reversing memory decline.

Magnesium is an essential mineral responsible to maintaining healthy brain functions. Over 50 million Americans have low levels of magnesium because people do not eat enough foods that contain magnesium. Cognitive impairment can affect a person’s memory, language, perception, ability to plan and carry out tasks, and judgment. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, estimates show that approximately 20% of people ages 55 and older will experience some form of cognitive impairment. The number and growth of the aging population in the U.S. is unprecedented.

What’s Your Dosha?

Filed Under: Announcements & News,General Wellness & Wellbeing,Herbs at 2:22 pm | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

The ancient Hindu practice of Ayurvedic medicine believes that everything in the universe is made up of five elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether (space.) These elements combine to form the three doshas, or metabolic types, that are represented in the human body in several different forms. For instance, bones and teeth are associated with earth, blood and lymph with water, metabolism with fire, oxygen with air, and ether with the spaces found between matter, which are often represented by vibration or sound.

So, what’s your dosha? Read on to find out!

Vata

People who exhibit the physical characteristics of a vata are either very tall or very short with a slight physique. Thin is in as far as vatas go, as they often have thin skin, hair, mouths and necks. A classic vata face is usually long and angular, often with an underdeveloped chin, pale eyes and a small, narrow nose. A vata’s teeth are irregular or protruding, set in receding gums. And while the voice is weak, low or cracked, vatas tend to be motormouths, with extremely fast speech patterns. Vatas have restless minds, tend to overanalyze and have weak memories. They are what most of us think of when we hear the phrase “the sensitive type” and are likely to be artistic, creative and susceptible to many forms of overindulgence.

Pitta:

Pittas are more of the fiery type. They can be loud, authoritative and convincing debaters. Physically they have soft, warm skin that sweats easily and tends to burn in the sun. Reddish hair that prematurely grays is another hallmark of the pitta, who also possesses a heart-shaped face, a pointed chin and nose and yellowish teeth. Pittas have are classic intellectuals and boast great organizational skills. Most pittas are fast learners and have excellent memories. And it’s precisely because of those selectively excellent memories that you never want to cross one. Pittas can be quick to anger, argumentative and are jealous and aggressive by nature.

Kapha:

The prototypical strapping kapha has a thick, broad frame and large limbs that pairs nicely with a deep, resonant voice. A kapha’s skin is usually oily and pale, but they make up for that with shocks of dark, wavy hair and a full face. Kapha’s can be easily recognized by their tree trunk-like neck, rounded nose, light eyes, large mouth and huge teeth. Kaphas are often calm, logical and considerate. Stable and patient, they are slow to anger and often calm down quickly on the rare occasions when they do let their emotions get the better of them. More passive by nature, kaphas can come off as lazy and ummotivated – even dull — to those who don’t know them. But don’t let their easygoing disposition fool you, kaphas have a naturally strong sex drive.

5 Basics Any Yogi Should Know

Filed Under: Exercise and Fitness,General Wellness & Wellbeing at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

5 Basics Any Yogi Should Know

Yoga is the union of body and mind. Whether you do it for improved flexibility or spirituality, here’s a few essentials you need to know before you step foot on the mat

1. Why we “Om” – “Om”, pronounced “A-U-M,” is the alpha and the omega. Everything and nothing. It’s the sound of the universe. When we “om” together, we become one with the universe.

2. Show respect with “Namaste” – Namaste (pronounced “Naa-Maa-Stay”,) can have many variations in translation.  “The soul in me honors the soul in you.” Traditionally, Namaste is an ancient Sanskrit greeting used in India but is also invoked at the end of a class to show gratitude.

3. Downward dog has nothing to do with your pet – Adho Mukha Svanasana is sometimes referred to as the mother of all poses in yoga. During this asana remember to spread the fingers wide and roll the shoulder blades back but don’t hyperextend the spine. Find your place in the pose and enjoy the benefits, which include decreased back pain, less tension, fewer headaches, lessened anxiety and improved circulation. Now, athletes and novices alike can get down with that!

4. Is it time for Savasana yet? – Also known as everybody’s favorite pose, it’s that time at the end of a class when you lie on your back and just let go. It serves multiple purposes for the physical, spiritual and philosophical self. Comfort is key during this pose. Feel free to ask your teacher for accessories like a blanket or bolster before you dive deep into relaxation.

5. Yoga is not for the flexible. It’s for the willing – Do not look over to your neighbor’s mat in envy of their eight-angle pose. Yoga is not about being bendy. It’s a reminder that all things take time and easing into. It forces us to be okay with the unknown and allows us to quiet the mind and just be.

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.
