Description Alive Astaxanthin 4mg

ASTAXANTHIN is a naturally occurring carotenoid with unique structure that is known to be a potent free radical scavenger.  It occurs naturally in certain algae and causes the pink or red color in salmon, trout, lobster, shrimp and other seafood. Unique from many other antioxidants, astaxan­thin crosses the blood-brain barrier, where it can protect the eye, brain and central nervous system from free radical damage. Scientific studies also demonstrate that Astaxanthin can support the body’s healthy and balanced immune system responses.  Astaxanthin has been used for treating Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, “brain attack” (stroke), high cholesterol and an eye condition called age-related macular degeneration. It has  been used for preventing cancer.

ASK Alice January Flyer New Years Resolution Sale 2015!

Categories: Alice Chung, Alive Brand, FLYER SALE!, Weight Loss

SONY DSCASK Alice New Years Resolutions Conquered! Failure is NOT an option in 2015…

The GOOD news is I have been successful in assisting people with forever WEIGHT LOSS results for over 30 years! Fitness Expert Robert DeVito from Dr. Oz and Preferred Nutrition Expert Brad King can help back me up… Losing weight is simple; it’s just not easy. We know HOW to do it, but the real question is “How do I lose weight and keep it off”? Using the 5 tips below along with PAGE 2 and PAGE 3 New Year’s Resolution Programs you are set up for SUCCESS! Let’s get started:

  1. Get Specific! Weight loss is a poor goal. Make your goals SMART: specific, measureable, attainable, relevant and time bound. How much weight do you want to lose in what amount of time?
  2. Focus on what you are gaining, not on what you are giving up. If you are focused on eliminating foods from your life – how long do you think you will have the willpower to hold out? Instead list out all of the things you will gain – Improved energy and self-confidence!!
  3. Get into the process and out of the outcome. Be patient. No one makes a decision and magically changes. Understand that a mistake is not the end. Get right back on track! Be realistic! Reduced Weight of any substantial sum is most likely a 12-18 month process.
  4. Focus on your schedule. If you schedule it, you will do it. If you will always start tomorrow and justify your lack of commitment to your health you will never reach the goals.  Make Fitness a non-negotiable priority.
  5. Avoid “All or None” thinking. Focus on Progress, not perfection. If you are moving more and eating better than before – you are making progress!

We always hear every year that most people fail with their New Year’s Resolutions, but improving Health should not fail as this is extremely important to our quality of life.  There are many reasons why we fail and the funny thing is we have all heard the reasons why a million times!  The goals were not specific enough, we are too hard on ourselves, if we falter a little bit we give up, we do not hold ourselves accountable, we do not introduce a buddy system, we do not make our goals realistic and we do not have good time management – meaning it is not enough to list the goals, but WHEN are you going to fit in the healthy food shopping, the meal preparation etc.  A healthy lifestyle requires a bit of work and some change in your previous routine BUT it does not all have to happen at once!  Chip away at it, do not get discouraged and talk to your friends, family and experts you feel comfortable with – your doctor, ND, Chiropractor and of course our Wellness Associates at Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus are ALWAYS here to lend an ear.  We are not here to just sell ‘stuff’.  We have quality products along with the knowledge of how to implement them into your exercise and healthy meal plans.  We are also hear to engage, talk with you about your health goals and aspirations to ensure you success!   We look forward to seeing you at a location near you!

Mental Illness & Bullying

Breaking the Code of Silence

We see all the ads of going back to school everywhere we look…  Did you get your pencil crayons and new cloths?? At Alive Health

Alice Chung Founder and Owner of Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus

Alice Chung Founder and Owner of Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus

Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus, going back to school, means more than just buying new things. We want to let our kids know that going back to school means being ready to face challenges, face fears, stand up to bullies by asking for help and to do these things by being respectful.  As many others before me have said, our children are our future.  Therefore, we need to give them all the opportunities we possibly can; such as the opportunity of optimal health. PAGE 3 is dedicated to: Brain power, Energy and Healthy Immune.  Throughout the whole flyer we are thinking about Moms, Dads and ALL families.  Too busy to eat quality nutrients try PG 2 VegEssentials or PG 4 Garden of Life Raw, Organic, Vegan Protein Meals.  Stressed out? PG 4 Alive GABA, it’s Natural and works quickly to help those suffering from insomnia and anxiety.

Lastly, despite the sad news in the world lately, I thought we should continue to raise awareness on issues such as bullying whenever possible.  So even if one person gets something out of this article, it will be worth it.  As you know it is our Mission: To change the world through healthy living by putting you first. So I will share this article written by Alive Magazine, Ellen Niemer.  Some people feel that kids shouldn’t tell anyone about being bullied, because it only makes it worse. I think they should. Bullies operate best under a code of silence – a lot of people may know about the bullying, but if they all keep it to themselves, they are aiding and abetting the bully. A new study released shows that kids who are exposed to bullying run an increased risk of developing psychiatric disorders as adults. And that’s whether they’re the victim or the perpetrator. The study also revealed that kids who are both bullies and victims run the highest risk of suicide. Whether we deal with bullies as kids, or as adults, in our homes, our schools, our playgrounds, or our workplaces, let’s break the code of silence. Have you been bullied? Let us know how you dealt with it.” www.alivehealthblog.com or facebook.com/alivehealth.

Call me old fashioned, but I will leave you with this…“Nothing is impossible. The word says, I’m Possible.” – Audrey Hepburn

U-Cubes TM – By Sisu – Multivitamin for Kids! Back to School!

Categories: Alive Brand, Autism, Brain Health, Children's Health, Energy, Kids Health

ucubes_2_20115463910413145650056Kids are back to school and they have everything they need… but wait what about their nutrients!  I know as a parent I try to give my kids the best nutrition possible through their food.  We garden as well so they know where their food comes from.  Sometimes it is a battle to find that balance of making food fun, something they will like as well as healthy.  They know that healthy tastes good and feels good, but sometimes we cannot always get the freshest veges, or the BEST wholefood options and for the best performance in school we all know that consistency is key!  Therefore incorporating a quality multivitamin is paramount for top performance in school.  There are also other important nutrients such as Kids DHA by Alive Vitamins and Flora BEAR Probiotics by Renew Life.  For now we will focus on U-Cubes TM by Sisu.

Why choose Sisu U-Cubes?

SISU U-CubesTM gummies provide the important vitamins and minerals children need daily, in a formula specially designed for kids. Other gummies are often made with animal gelatin, high-fructose corn syrup, and artificial colours and preservatives – but not SISU U-CubesTM. Sisu stands behind giving your kids the best: pectin-based, naturally-flavoured multi vitamin and mineral to help bridge nutritional gaps and provide extra nutrients for growing bodies and minds.

Product Information

  • Daily vitamin and mineral supplement in a chewy gummy
  • Pectin-based cubes
  • Kids’ favourite flavours in each bottle: grape, cherry, and orange
  • Naturally sweetened with sugarcane juice and tapioca syrup
  • Natural vegetable colours: maqui berry, black carrot, and turmeric
  • Frosted with GMO-free tapioca sugar crystals

SISU Advantages

  • Made with non-GMO ingredients
  • All-natural flavours, sweeteners, and colours
  • Free of beef or pork gelatin
  • No high-fructose corn syrup
  • Kid-friendly, lightweight, plant-based bottle
  • Tested for guaranteed purity and potency

In Summary:

Despite our best attempts, children’s diets can experience nutritional gaps. Fruits, veggies, proteins, good fats…are all elements we strive to provide but can be a challenge to deliver. Supplementing a child’s diet with a high-quality, pure and safe multivitamin will help you provide your kids with the essential building blocks of a fully complemented diet.

If there is not a location near you we would love to help you with a mail order. MAIL ORDER: Toll free 1-866-499-9546

We hope that you will come and visit us at either Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus. Do not sit in silence; there are so many things you can do to better your health!

Alive GABA – 100% Natural Helps with Insomnia and Anxiety

Categories: Alice Chung, Alive Brand, Alive GABA, Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Energy, Fatigue, FORBES, GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric Acid), Mental Well Being, Robin Williams, Shannon Chung, Stress

BrainMental Health is a passion for me, in terms of helping people heal.  I have many friends and family who are affected by Mental Illness and it is always a hard battle for both the sufferer and their loved ones watching them carry on.  Most readers know that I am Shannon Chung, editor of the Alive Health Blog, but I wanted to let those who don’t know … that I wish to do what I can to help spread the awareness that there is nothing to be ashamed of if you are suffering from a Mental Illness.  This blog has always had the intention of providing credible health information and I have always been available via email for any questions.  I am also in the Oakridge location on Thursdays from 11:00 to 5:00pm.  While this article does touch on products, it is not all about “buy this”.  Our goal is not to just “sell products” but to create awareness of health and to put people first.  Everyone must find the right treatment for them… we are all different, unique and that means that there sometimes is not a simple or quick solution.

Therefore I hope this article serves you well and I stand by our mission statement:  “Changing the world through healthy living, by putting you first.”

Firstly I wanted to share the following article by FORBES entitled 5 Common Myths About Depression:

With the tragic loss of Robin Williams to apparent suicide, a worldwide discussion about the effects of depression has begun. Untreated depression is the leading cause of suicide in the US, and suicide claims 34,000 lives in this country every year. Far too often those who would benefit from treatment don’t get it due to lack of knowledge and misconceptions about the illness. Below are five of the most common myths about depression, with links to resources for more information.

1. Depression is synonymous with sadness.

Many of Robin Williams’ acquaintances interviewed since his death have noted that they never saw him unhappy, yet he suffered from severe depression. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), many of those suffering from depression do feel overwhelming sadness, but many don’t feel any specific emotion at all. A better description would be a feeling of emptiness and apathy. And since anxiety often accompanies depression, many feel a constant state of tension that persists for no apparent reason.

2. Depression is a sign of mental weakness.

Part of the stigma surrounding depression is that others will see it as a sign of weakness. Yet we don’t accuse someone suffering from heart disease or MS of being weak; we rightly acknowledge those as illnesses that affect a wide range of people. Depression is also an illness—more specifically, it’s a complex medical disorder that has biological, psychological and social dimensions. Plenty of otherwise “strong” people suffer from severe depression, and the consequences of not treating it are just as real and tragic as those of other debilitating diseases. An illness that affects the chemistry of the brain and nervous system is no less an illness than one that affects any other part of the body.

3. Depression is always situational.

While depression often does have a situational trigger like the loss of a loved one or divorce, the underlying condition does not need any particular event to surface. Depression is typically diagnosed when someone suffers from prolonged episodes (at least two weeks) of hopelessness, emptiness and lethargy that have no apparent cause. These periods can manifest inexplicably, even when life events seem generally positive. (This is another reason why depression and sadness are not synonymous.)

4. Depression symptoms are all in your head.

While it’s true that many depression symptoms are of the nature we normally associate with the “head” (dark emotion, tension, etc.), the condition frequently manifests all over the body. Common depression symptoms include indigestion, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, and general fatigue. Some patients also complain of persistent muscle aches.

5. If you are diagnosed with depression, you’ll be on antidepressants the rest of your life.

The ubiquity of antidepressant commercials and media coverage has had a backlash effect. Many people are fearful of being put on an antidepressant, even if they may benefit from one, because they think once you’re “hooked” you’ll never be able to stop. The reality is that not everyone benefits from antidepressants – by some estimates nearly 40% of those prescribed one will experience no benefits. Some people respond better to forms of psychotherapy, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), or a combination of medication and therapy.  Even someone who gets good results from an antidepressant can, with medical supervision, eventually taper off the med in many cases.

The bottom line: depression is a treatable illness. When left untreated, its effects can be devastating.

For more information, visit the NIMH, the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, Mental Health America, or this list of resources at WebMD.

Safe & 100% Natural Relief for Anxiety & Insomnia – CONTROL Your Life NOW With Alive GABA

Globally more than 350 million people of all ages suffer from depression.  Did you know that ANXIETY is one of the most prevalent mental health problems?  Unfortunately, it is still under-reported, under-diagnosed and under-treated. Your health depends on a good night’s sleep and you simply cannot get it if you suffer from insomnia and anxiety.  Don’t let anxiety hang around until tomorrow.  Your natural solution is Alive GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric Acid) - referred to as the brain’s natural calming agent and helps to tem­porarily promote relaxation. People who suffer from depression or anxiety are less productive at work, more irritable (even with friends and family) and cause much harm to themselves, that they cannot see.  This is the most dangerous kind, that is why mental health is the silent killer.  Benefits of Alive GABA 600mg:

· It is FAST acting & Increases growth hormone levels (HGH)
