New Chapter Zyflamend

We often think of the body’s inflammation response as something we can feel—like in our joints and muscles where there are large numbers of sensitive nerve endings. But we can also have an inflammation response we can’t feel where sensitive nerves aren’t concentrated. Whether we’re aware of it or not, the body’s inflammation response can affect every organ and cell in the body.

Zyflamend represents a scientific breakthrough based on extensive research on how phytochemicals present in herbs and spices can safely and effectively promote a healthy inflammation response for overall health and wellness. The herbs are carefully extracted to deliver the full spectrum of their naturally occurring constituents. This multitude of compounds works together to help your body support a healthy inflammation response.

Tailored Zyflamend for Tailored Support: Zyflamend Heart
Zyflamend Heart delivers the patented Zyflamend formula and adds the power of one of Nature’s true superfoods—whole fish oil from Wild Alaskan Salmon. Our extra-virgin 100% Wild Salmon oil contains the beneficial Omega fatty acids (good fats) that are the main reason experts recommend eating fish regularly. Omega fatty acids improve the Omega-3 Index, a studied heart health marker, and help retain healthy triglyceride levels.

In addition to Zyflamend Heart, there are Zyflamend formulations specifically for men.

Zyflamend Prostate

Prostate health is a concern for every man as the years go by. Fortunately, Nature has provided us with an array of key foods and herbs that, when sufficiently concentrated and intelligently blended, can provide support for prostate health.* You can find these select ingredients in Zyflamend Prostate, the unique herbal formula with a combined approach to prostate health: helping to support normal urine flow, supporting a healthy antioxidant response, and supporting overall prostate health.

Supports Whole-Body Health
How are you supporting your healthy inflammation response? Perhaps just as important as a daily multivitamin, Zyflamend is the patented herbal protocol to help your whole body’s natural inflammation process stay balanced. Whole-food antioxidants, including Ginger, Turmeric, Green Tea, and Rosemary, help quench free radicals and support healthy aging.

Drop Some NIAGEN for Pumping Up More Energy

best-energy-niagen

Need more energy?

Doctor’s Best will cover that extra boost you need in order for you to outlast the day, whether for your after-work gym activities or for a simple extra time to spend you’re your loved ones. Doctor’s Best Energy featuring NIAGEN is a dietary supplement that promotes energy-dependent regulation of cell functions in your body and facilitates the utilization of glucose and fat that the body needs to produce energy. Primarily, this will keep your well-being up-and-running for few more hours, giving you more time for extra activities.

Niagen on the Job

Thanks to its key ingredients – primarily Niagen – this supplement will help supply the body with Nicotinamide Riboside or N(r), a supposed Vitamin B3’s (Niacin) next generation that is responsible for converting food into chemical energy, as well as for the regulation of the body’s metabolism. Basically, this Nicotinamide Ribosode is being converted into a co-enzyme called Nucotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+), a vital factor in metabolism and energy production of the body.

Along with this, Niagen is also responsible for the conversion of fats into Adenosine Triphosphate or ATP in the event the level of body’s Glucose declines. ATP is responsible for transporting chemical energy within the cells of the body to commence the metabolism process. This makes ATP go hand-in-hand with NAD+ hence, the lower the ATP, the lower the NAD+, the slower the metabolism process and production of energy.

Moreover the presence of NAD+ of the body aids in maintaining brain health by constantly allotting a chunk of needed energy required by the nerve cells in keeping its function, as well in adapting to sudden body changes, giving you a more active and alert presence of mind.

A Daily Dose of Energy

For daily dose, take 1 capsule, twice for every after meal, or as recommended by your nutritionist to power up your day. Keep up with your active lifestyle and push boundaries by exerting more energy without the exhausted feeling.

Why Weight Loss Diet Don’t Work

Remember that scene in School of Rock where Tomika, the chubby cute girl with a tenacious soul voice, asked Jack Black the burning question, “Why don’t you go on a diet?” then Jack Black answers back “BECAUSE I LOVE TO EAT!” in full conviction.

Jack Black’s character may have simply justified his love for food there, but he’s right at some point. Weight loss diet doesn’t work anyway.

weight-lost-diet

As you all know, many people who are struggling to lose weight often resort to crash dieting. Some even accompany this with diet pills and other supplements to speed up their skinny goal, but that’s a different story altogether. Here’s a nickel’s worth of advice: Don’t do it. Given that it will indeed take your weight down a few notches, weight-loss or crash diet could result to a number of health risks that may and can lead serious health dangers. Worse, it will just be temporary. Eventually you’ll gain back all the weight you’ve shed the moment you stop the diet.

Clearly, losing a few pounds is not an overnight thing. But taking refuge to drastic measure isn’t the answer to bring back the glorious form of your body.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Gaining back those pounds you’ve lost once you return to your normal eating routine is one thing. On the more serious note, resorting to crash diet leads to lacking the recommended nutrients the body needs to function well, making you all moody, irritated and always feeling a bit under the weather. Moreover, cutting your calorie intake forces your body to burn muscle instead of fats while gradually losing water in the process. And in relation to this, it can slow your metabolism as your body adjusts to sudden calorie intake changes. Mind you, that’s just the short term effects.

The Deeper Effects

There are far more harmful effects this weight loss diet can give you. You are basically depriving yourself the nutrients you need for the day, not to mention the satisfaction of eating itself. This leads to depression, less motivation and lower self-esteem. Eventually this may escalate into something worse, such as eating disorder (anorexia and bulimia). Other effects include abnormal change ranging from ulcer, blood pressure, gallstones, to heart problems, brain damage and other serious ailments in your vital organs.

Healthy Options

There is a lot of options to shed those excess baggage in a safer and healthier way. And believe or not, it still involves weight-loss diet programs. Don’t get it wrong, as these diets are monitored, controlled, tested and usually paired with regular exercise and other dynamic activities as well as the necessary vitamins and supplements for retaining one’s well-being. Perhaps one way to put this is to choose what to eat and refrain from bad eating habits. Control plays a key factor on this particular step. Also, it is highly recommended to do is to set a timetable to determine your target weight for a specific period. Lastly, once you’ve reached your goal, maintain it.

To sum up, hating food won’t do you any good.

Ginseng Energizers in Winter

Herbal tonics have a long history of traditional use for supporting normal energy levels, preserving vitality, and enhancing physical performance. Ginseng, one of the most highly regarded energy tonics of Chinese herbalism, is an herbal adaptogen, which helps the body adapt to a variety of stresses. It is a key ingredient in the following ginseng energizers offered by Planetary Herbals.

Full Spectrum™ Ginseng
Full Spectrum™ Ginseng Extract combines a standardized extract of Korean ginseng root, concentrated to 20% ginsenosides, with whole Korean ginseng root. Combining the extract with pure root ensures all the important compounds of ginseng are captured, for a broad range of ginseng activity.

Ginseng Classic™
This formula, formerly known as Four Noble Gentlemen, is one of the classic ginseng energizing formulas of Chinese herbalism (Si Junzi Tang). It was first written about in 1078 A.D., and has remained one of China’s most valued tonic formulas for almost 1,000 years. This dynamic combination reflects the tradition and power of Chinese classic formulas. It combines red Kirin ginseng root with atractylodes root, Poria cocos sclerotium, and licorice root.

Ginseng Elixir™
This classic Chinese formula was described more than 700 years ago (Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang). Its combination of energizing and tonifying botanicals has been one of China’s most frequently used compounds for seven centuries. Included are astragalus root, licorice root, molasses, atractylodes root, bupleurum root, cimicifuga rhizome, jujube fruit, dong quai root extract, dong quai root, and ginger root.

Ginseng Revitalizer™
Ginseng Revitalizer™ is based on a classic formula that has been used since 1078 A.D. to support energy levels without the use of stimulants. This dynamic formula combines extracts and whole roots from several varieties of ginseng (Panax, American, and Tienchi) with Eleutherococcus senticosus and a blend of energizing and tonifying botanicals.

Introducing to Popular Yacon Syrup!

We’re glad that the Most Popular Yacon Syrup is Now In Stock!

Probiotic Sweetener with Low Glycemic Index!

Yacon is a distant relative of the sunflower with edible tubers and leaves. The syrup from this sweet root is raising eyebrows in the medical community and natural product world for its medicinal qualities. It contains fructooligosaccharides (FOS), which pass through the digestive track unmetabolized, providing few calories. The sugars, however, are metabolized by the bifidobacteria in the large intestine and contribute to improved digestions and absorption of vitamins, such as B-complex. The undigested portion of yacon serves as prebiotic-food for ‘friendly’ bacteria. Other benefits of FOS supplementation include increased production of beneficial short-chain fatty acids, such as butyrate, increased absorption of calcium and magnesium and improved elimination of toxic compounds. Preclinical studies indicate an increase in bone density after consumption of FOS. It may help diabetics regulate and normalize glucose levels in the blood due to its FOS content. It is considered hypoglycemic and holds promise as a sweetener for diabetics and others who choose not to consume sugar.

Traditional Ethnobotanical Information

This delicious root crop has been grown in the Andes by the Inca and their descendants. Related to sunflowers, Yacon has large succulent roots that have a juicy, watermelon flavor. From this we produce an exceptionally sweet syrup which can be used like honey or maple syrup.

You hold in your hands the finest traditional botanical available on earth. This botanical is a long standing favorite in South America where it has been empirically selected for its effectiveness over many generations. Only organically cultivated or sustainably wild harvested plants are collected and shipped to our laboratories.

Lowering Cholesterol the Natural Way

While most people resort to taking dietary supplements to lower high cholesterol, natural methods are being pushed and highly recommended by doctors and nutritionists to maintain and improve one’s well-being.

Granted that these supplements and medications work well with your body, doing it the natural way has a lot of other benefits other than cutting off fat deposits running (and blocking) through your veins. As the old Appeal to Nature argument goes, “A thing is good because it’s natural.”

Interested in starting to go all natural? Here are some tips:

Know your food

Take the good ol’ doctor’s advice, “watch what you eat” in order to significantly drop your cholesterol rate. But this does not suggest you to stop enjoying food. Remember, eating right is very different from eating less, that’s why upsetting your appetite for you to eat less or worse, not eating at all won’t do any good. The key here is balanced diet and knowing the nutrition facts of your food (e.g. saturated fat, trans fat, sodium, sugar, protein, carbohydrates, etc.)

Separate the Good from the Bad

Eating wisely is just like choosing what is right from wrong. Consuming food with high fatty content reduces High Density Lipoproteins (HDL) AKA good cholesterol in your body, so it’s better to go for white or lean over red and bloody. You may also consider eating fish as substitute for meat. As for cooking, use olive oil or sunflower oil instead of regular palm and coconut oil, as the latter two contains higher saturated fat. It is better to go for baked, steamed, stewed or poached food instead of fried. Eat more fibrous grub such as fruits, veggies, oats, and nuts, while cut down a couple of notches on food with high calories and carbs.

Rock Your Body

Car is to fuel as body is to food. Thus, the logical thing to do is to use that fuel, or as the analogy goes, burn it. And by burning it, not just by simply go through with your day. Watching TV or sitting on the same office chair for 8 straight hours won’t do the job. Do more dynamic physical activities, such as brisk walking, jogging, sports or aerobics to release that pent-up energy. A good 45-minute cardio a day is ideal for lowering bad cholesterol in your body.

A Little Booze Is Not That Bad

As long as you don’t abuse alcohol by going on a binge drinking spree, then you’re fine. Drinking 2 to 3 glasses of red wine daily reduces the risks of heart-related diseases. Resveratol, polyphenol and flavanoids are anti-oxidants found in wine grapes raises the levels of HDL in your body, while protecting the lining of your heart’s blood vessels to prevent blood clotting. Same goes beer drinkers. Beer, particularly dark beer, has antioxidants that relatively provide the same benefits as that of wine.

Kick your Smoking Habit

Cigarette and other tobacco products contain free-radicals that cause the constriction of blood vessels and damage to the arteries’ lining. These effects inevitably lead to build-up of HDL and other fatty substances on the artery walls. Kicking the habit improves blood circulation as the carbon monoxide level in your body drops significantly, while long term benefits include avoiding risks of acquiring heart diseases.

Dodge Stress

As the song goes, “Relax!” Stress comes in many forms, and it’s going to get you whether you like it or not. Stress imposes the increase of cholesterol level in your body by triggering chemical imbalance and the release of fatty substance. For most people, breathing exercises and yoga are the best counteractions for stress. Although, techniques to alleviate stress may still vary, depending on the person’s character and preferences in handling stress.

Natural Supplements

Aside from taking prescribed supplements, natural supplements such as garlic cloves, barley, green tea, oats and artichoke are still considered far more effective and safer. Most of these traditional supplements have the same benefits for lowering your cholesterol level.

NOW Foods Bone Calcium

Bone meal is a natural source of Calcium Phosphate, a composition of Calcium and Phosphorus known as hydroxyapatite. Hydroxyapatite, found in teeth and bones, confers rigidity to these structures and is well absorbed from the digestive tract. Phosphorus is necessary for the production of bone tissue and plays an integral role in the maintenance of the body’s acid-base balance. NOW® Bone Calcium has been enhanced with Vitamin D, as well as complementary minerals, such as Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, and Boron, that work with Calcium to support healthy bone metabolism.* NOW® Bone Calcium is naturally derived from cattle raised in Australia. It is sterilized and tested for heavy metals such as lead and aluminum to assure the lowest levels possible.

With the holiday season upon us, food is everywhere. From festive holiday parties to dinners with friends and family, let’s face it, this time of year tends to center around food. And, it is perfectly OK to indulge on occasion, sans the guilt, without gaining weight. The trick is to enjoy what you are eating, and to eat mindfully while avoiding overindulging and gaining weight in the process.

For the good news, according to research published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Americans, on average, gain just about one pound during the holiday season, with overweight individuals gaining a bit more. This is really not too bad, as long as we keep it to just one pound and get back on track come the New Year.

To help avoid gaining weight this holiday season while also enjoying your favorite foods, here are some strategies that I have used successfully with clients that I counsel in my nutrition practice.

1. Eat healthy MOST of the time.

Make healthy low-calorie choices when you can and do not waste calories nibbling at home while watching TV. Celebrate only at a holiday dinner party or during a holiday event. Plan your day and even plan for your occasional splurge.

2. Eat what you LOVE.

Do not waste calories overeating on cookies and junk food that you do not like just because they are sitting there or because someone else is eating them. Save your extra calories for special foods you enjoy during this time of year.

3. Mind your PORTIONS.

What I love about portion control is that you can still indulge in your favorite foods instead of banning them completely. And you do not have to eat tiny portions. The trick is to eat larger portions of healthy foods balanced with smaller portions of more indulgent and high-calorie choices.

4. Try eating off of RED plates.

Red is a festive color and red plates certainly go with the season. New research published in the journal Appetite found that we eat less when eating food on a red plate. Subjects who were given pretzels on a red plate ate significantly less than those given pretzels on a blue or white plate. Who knew? Certainly worth a try. The authors suggest that the color red may work as a subtle stop signal (like a red traffic light) which may guide us to reduce our intake.

5. Eat MORE fruits and veggies.

High in fiber, rich in nutrients, and low in calories, enjoying colorful fruits and vegetables is a win-win. Try filling half of your plate with fruits or vegetables at each meal.

6. Limit LIQUID calories.

When we drink our calories instead of eat them, we do not tend to register fullness and we often end up consuming extra unnecessary calories. For example, we often eat a bag of chips with the soda we are guzzling down. And liquid calories such as soda are pure empty calories. Many alcoholic drinks also tend to be high in calories and drinking tends to decrease our resistance to temptations. It is OK to enjoy an occasional glass of red wine, or white wine spritzer, but best to have the drink with dinner and not on an empty stomach. And, fill up on water or seltzer, both calorie free, before your meal.

7. Keep up your EXERCISE routine.

Choose an exercise routine you enjoy and pick a time that works for you so that you will stick to it.

8. DROP the guilt.

If you overate, do not feel guilty. And now there is now research to prove it.

New research found that people who feel guilty after eating large amounts of snack foods tend to gain more weight than those who don’t feel the guilt.

This year, enjoy the holiday season sans guilt!
