What’s New? Kind Soap

Filed Under: Baby and Child Health,Personal Care at 12:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin is happy to introduce another premium brand of personal care products to our customers: Kind Soap Company.

Kind Soap Company offers a variety of personal care products created with the highest quality natural ingredients without sacrificing the effectiveness of these “healthier” products. The company uses various organic and wild harvested ingredients and the label listing is always complete and 100% guaranteed, unlike many companies that “legally” omit ingredients and preservatives that fall below .5% of the product formula.

Kind Soap Company philosophy is to always be kind in three different ways: kind to your skin, kind to the earth, and kind to others. Kind to the skin means never formulating a product with known skin irritants like sulfates and synthetic fragrance, hormone disruptors, and carcinogenic chemicals commonly found in traditional body care products. No parabens, formaldehyde-releasing agents, or any other suspicious preservatives will ever be used in any Kind Soap products. Only pure, non-solvent-extracted essential oils are used to give the products their wonderful scents, and natural botanicals, spices and naturally mined pigments are used for color.

Being Kind to the earth involves eco-conscious decisions about packaging and processes. The goal is to reduce deforestation and depletion of natural resources by utilizing tree-free labels, water free printing, and vegetable based inks. Kind Soap wants to reduce toxic emissions and polluted air and water by using only biodegradable product ingredients, and wind energy for printing as well as minimizing the ever-growing mounds of non-biodegradable trash on land and sea by reusing and recycling of all packaging. Lastly, be kind to others. A portion of every product sold goes to the Autism Speaks organization, in addition to funding many other worthy organizations through product sales and donations throughout the year.

Iron Supplementation Benefits Physical Performance

Filed Under: Vitamins and Minerals,Women's Health at 12:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

A recent study suggests that iron supplementation may provide physical performance benefits. Previous studies have suggested that iron deficiency impairs physical exercise performance but this new research focused on iron deficiency and anemia in women of reproductive age (WRA).

Published in the US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health, this study performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine the effect of iron supplementation compared with control on exercise performance in WRA. Randomized controlled trials measured exercise outcomes in WRA and compared the results of individuals taking daily oral iron supplementation versus the ones not taking it. The results were quite impressive. Iron supplementation improved both maximal exercise performance, demonstrated by an increase in maximal oxygen consumption (VO2 max), and submaximal exercise performance, demonstrated by a lower heart rate. Daily iron supplementation significantly helped to prevent and treat iron deficiency in the group.

Iron is an essential mineral found in many foods but women may require supplementation particularly during pregnancy, when the amount of iron needed by the body needs nearly doubles. Iron is needed to make hemoglobin, a protein in your body, which helps carry oxygen to your cells. When you are pregnant the volume of blood in your body also increases by about 50%, requiring more hemoglobin to meet these requirements.

Many women have low iron levels even before they become pregnant.  The Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have estimated that young minority women are at the highest risk of being iron deficient.  As pregnancy continues, normal hematocrit and hemoglobin values will also decrease during the second and third trimester because of hemodilution increasing the risk of becoming anemic. Exercising during pregnancy is very important to maintain good health but women must ensure that iron intake can support the higher required levels as well as the amount needed for physical activity.

Ashwangandha For Bipolar Disorder

Filed Under: Herbs,Mental Wellbeing at 11:58 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

Used since ancient times for a wide variety of conditions,  Ashwagandha, one of the most vital herbs in Ayurvedic healing but is most well-known for its restorative benefits. The name “ashwagandha” translates to “horse’s smell,” referencing the musky scent of the plant. It is is a small, shrub-like plant belonging to the nightshade family and is closely related to the common tomato. The plant is native to India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, thriving in the semitropical environment of these regions.

For over 3000 years, Ayurvedic practitioners in India began using it for people with anxiety, low energy, and the ravages of aging. In holistic medical care, ashwangandha is seen as ‘adaptogenic’, meaning it will help increase effect when activity is low, but will block excess stimulation when activity is too high. This is a very good choice for the wild hormonal variations that occur with anxiety.

In a recent study published in the peer reviewed Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, Ashwagandha was shown to improve several areas of cognitive effect in subjects with bipolar disorder. Recent research has identified numerous bioactive constituents in Ashwagandha that have cognitive enhancing benefits, namely the steroidal lactones which are known as glycowithanolides and sitoindosides. These brain eantooxidants have been shown to enhance mental performance and promote nueroprotective activity.

Typical dosage is 300mg of ashwagandha standardized once or twice a day. Ashwaganda may be beneficial for someone who suffers from anxiety, bipolar disorder or experiences sleeplessness due to high amounts of stress.

Healthy and Delicious Summer Beverage

Filed Under: Diet & Weight Loss,Health Foods at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

If you are looking for a new summer beverage but can’t find one that fits that healthy and delicious category, here’s a suggestion: try a coconut pineapple smoothie.

These two tropical fruits can be blended in many different ways but the end result is often a delicious, refreshing and, most importantly, healthy beverage. Pineapple and coconut smoothies lack the unnecessary calories while offering many additional health benefits. When made with coconut milk, an average 12-ounce pineapple coconut smoothie contains approximately 158 calories, not too bad for a good-tasting drink which fits into the healthy diet rules. There are also 30 grams of carbohydrates and two grams of dietary fiber in each smoothie. If you want to have an ever healthier beverage, you can use coconut water instead of coconut milk. Coconut water is a great source of potassium and when adding fresh pineapple chunks and ice, you have a delicious and refreshing drink for the hot summer days.

In addition, a regular pineapple and coconut smoothie contains four grams of protein and average just about three grams of fat, two grams of which are saturated, reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease. The saturated fat in the smoothie is mostly from the coconut milk so when you use coconut water, you have a nearly fat-free version. Each smoothie also contains only three milligrams of cholesterol per serving, considered a very low amount for a smoothie beverage.

Lastly, pineapple coconut beverages also contain important vitamins and minerals. Each 12-ounce smoothie contains in average 40 milligrams of calcium, two milligrams of iron, 325 milligrams of potassium, 80 milligrams of vitamin C, 43 milligrams of folate and 100 international units of vitamin A.

Eat Your Greens

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Nutrition,Vitamins and Minerals at 8:00 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

Greens are the talk of the town right now. Adding one of the healthiest foods to your diet can improve overall health and well-being. Let’s face it though, not all greens are the same.  Today we are going to look at some of the nutrients and health benefits we can receive by adding greens into our diets.

First off, we’ll talk about one of the trendiest greens right now, kale. Kale is the nutrition All-Star: the “LeBron James” of greens.  Kale is low in calories, high in fiber and contains zero fat. One cup of kale has only 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat. It contains vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, potassium, vitamins A, C, and K. Kale is also a great anti-inflammatory food because it contains 10% of the RDA of omega-3 fatty acids.

The next green everyone is aware of is mostly because of the gigantic muscles and amplified strength it gave to Popeye. But there are a lot more health benefits to consider when it comes to spinach.  Spinach is full of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.  Spinach is packed with vitamins A, C, K, folate, iron, magnesium and much more. Spinach is a good source of dietary fiber and proteins. The folate in spinach is good for a healthy cardiovascular system, while the magnesium helps lower high blood pressure.

One green that not many people are aware of, but is a nutrition powerhouse is collard greens.  This cruciferous vegetable, used commonly in southern cooking, has one of the greatest abilities to lower cholesterol by binding bile acids.  Collard greens are a good vegetable to add to your diet if you want to improve detoxification, increase antioxidants, fight against cancer and lower inflammation. Besides the previous health benefits mentioned, collard greens are also high in vitamins K, A, C, B2, B6 as well as manganese, fiber and calcium.

Fresh vegetables are the best source of nutrients; however, a great way to make sure that you are getting all your daily servings of greens is by adding in greens formulas to you daily routine. Green Formulas are a good option to keep on hand when fresh isn’t available or when traveling. They are also great for people on the go with work and active lifestyles. Lucky Vitamin is proud to carry a wide variety of certified organic green formulas.

Pre-Workout Beverage? Coffee

Filed Under: Exercise and Fitness,Health Foods at 1:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

If you are searching for a pre-workout beverage, you may have been drinking it without knowing it: coffee. A recent study shows that drinking coffee before a workout can help burn more calories. Published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, the study discovered that trained athletes who took in caffeine pre-exercise burned about 15% more calories for three hours post-exercise compared to those who ingested a placebo. The dose that triggered the effect was 4.5 mg of caffeine per kilogram of body weight. For a 150-pound person that’s roughly 300 mg of caffeine the amount in about 12 ounces of brewed coffee, the average quantity of a regular cup of coffee.

Coffee may offer a weight-loss advantage as caffeine has been known to increase workout benefits but that might be more than just a spark of energy. Scientists at the University of Illinois found that consuming the caffeine equivalent of around two cups of coffee one hour before a 30-minute, high-intensity exercise reduced muscle pain. Consequently, caffeine may help you push just a little bit harder during strength-training workouts, resulting in better improvements in muscle strength and endurance. Additionally, research suggests that caffeine may help preserve overall fitness and reduce the risk of age-related injuries.

Lastly, a recent study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that a little caffeine post-exercise may also be beneficial, particularly for endurance athletes who perform day after day. The research found that compared to consuming carbohydrates alone, a caffeine/carb combo resulted in a 66% increase in muscle glycogen four hours after intense, glycogen-depleting exercise. Glycogen, the form of carbohydrate that gets stockpiled in muscle, serves as a vital energy reserve during exercise, to power strength moves, and fuel endurance.

Remember: do not to rely on caffeine as an energy booster if you’re often tired. Get more rest and find the real reason you feel fatigue. Be consistent with your coffee intake and drink plenty of water regularly.

5 Chemical Free Alternatives to Sunscreen

Filed Under: Environment,General Wellness & Wellbeing,Personal Care at 1:03 pm | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

Whether you’re at the beach or just hanging out in your backyard, it’s important to protect yourself and your family from the sun’s damaging rays. Unfortunately, any old sunscreen won’t do. Most commercial sunscreens contain a wide variety of toxic ingredients and have the potential to do more harm than good. Recent reports have suggested that some of the main ingredients found in mass produced sunscreens could even cause cancer.

Here’s a list of potential toxic chemicals that may be learking in you sunscreen:

  • Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), including octyl-dimethyl PABA
  • Benzophenones, especially benzophenone-3, Oxybenzone
  • Cinnamates, namely octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC)
  • Homosalate
  • 4-methyl-benzylidene camphor (4-MBC)
  • Retinyl Palmitate

Luckily, there are ways to protect your skin from overexposure without the use of harsh chemicals. Many natural oils offer protection from the sun and offer varying levels of SPF.

Get sun protection without the toxins

When shopping for sunscreens be sure to read the labels and avoid buying sunscreens containing toxic chemicals, such as those found in the above list. Or you could try making your own using safe oils (some which you can find in your kitchen!).

Here are some natural alternatives to traditional sunscreens that feature some built-in SPF protection:

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil can provide a SPF of 8. Even though this isn’t a very high SPF, multiple applications can provide extra moisture and prevent skin from burning.

Wheatgerm Oil

Wheat-germ oil contains vitamin A, vitamin D, B vitamins and antioxidants. These nutrients not only moisturize and heal dry or cracked skin, they also help prevent scarring. In particular, wheat-germ oil has a natural SPF of and is a great source of vitamin E, which helps reduce skin damage.

Shea Butter

Shea butter has an SPF of about 6, which is perfect for low sun levels or people with naturally dark skin. It works wonders on dry skin and eczema because it’s readily absorbed into the skin and contains so many fatty acids.

Red Raspberry Seed Oil

Red Raspberry Seed Oil is a great additional to skin care products due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Recently, this fruit oil has been found to contain an SPF as high as 28-50 which is equal to that of titanium dioxide.

Carrot Seed Oil

This essential oil is contains a natural SPF of 38 to 40. Carrot seed oil therapeutic benefits include antioxidant, antiseptic and high levels of Vitamin A. Make sure to use with a carrier oil before applying it to your skin.

Fight Depression Naturally With St. John’s Wort

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Herbs,Supplements at 2:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Did you know that one in ten adults is affected by depression in the United States? Depression can affect people in many different ways. Mood, thoughts, physical health, and behavior all may be affected but the symptoms and severity of depression can vary from person to person. Depression can be treated with regular medicine but that is not the only option. Natural supplements can be very helpful to fight this medical condition and St. John’s Wort products are one of the best ways to treat depression naturally.

St. John’s Wort supplements are made from a plant (Hypericum perforatum) that grows in the wild. This herbal product has been used for centuries for health purposes and studies have shown that St. John’s may help some types of depression, similar to treatment with standard prescription antidepressants. A 2009 systematic review of 29 international studies suggested that St. John’s Wort may be better than a placebo (an inactive substance that appears identical to the study substance) and as effective as standard prescription antidepressants for major depression of mild to moderate severity. St. John’s Wort also appeared to have fewer side effects than standard antidepressants. The studies were conducted in German-speaking countries where St. John’s Wort has a long history of use by medical professionals, reported more positive results than those done in other countries, including the United States.

St. John’s Wort is widely prescribed for depression in Europe but the herb has some side effects. Make sure to consult with your health care provider before you start taking St. John’s Wort supplements.
