It’s time to check in and see how your New Year’s Resolutions are going…  It is now January 18th and the statistics are not all that uplifting, as most people do not reach their weight loss goals.  Well that doesn’t have to be you.  Rome wasn’t built in a day, so do not give up!  Did you not go to the gym at all last week? Did you just have a muffin for lunch?  Did you skip breakfast altogether? Well, that’s in the past and its time to be in the present and really dig deep.  If you are ready to make a change and reach your goals, we still have our Winter New Years Resolution Sale going on.  I really do encourage you to come into a store near you to speak with one of our wellness associates, as your success rate is far higher once you tell someone about your goals…

Hope you enjoy the ASK Alice this time around… A message from our Owner at Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus.

ASK Alice – How My Son Lost 70 lbs & Keeps it OFF!

Over the years, I have had the privilege of working closely with people who want to make positive healthy changes and guess what;
they are successful!  Why is this?  My secret is simple; you have to tell someone your goal!  How about my own son, who lost 70
lbs.!!  He decided 15 years ago that he was going to lose weight once and for all. Once he made a commitment to himself, he then
told someone about his goal. He made it happen with dietary changes, exercise he likes and supplements like Alive Super One Plus,
Enzymes, White Kidney Bean, Chitosan and Wild Rose Detox! Therefore, we urge you to 1. Make a SMART goal, 2. Pick Relevant
Supplements & 3. Come in and tell us about it!  Pg 2 & 3  will help you Transform Your Body in 8 Weeks, whether it is to lose weight,
discover anti-aging cocktails or cleanse/energize!  My team’s goal this year is to help as many people as possible succeed, so don’t
let us down, COME IN AND MAKE YOUR RESOLUTION A REALITY! My Son can do it, SO CAN YOU!

The Difference Between Wet and Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Categories: Alice Chung, Alive Brand, Anti-Ageing, Antioxidants, Eye Health, Macular Degeneration

266-Lutein-Eye-18mg-60-CapsThe Difference Between Wet and Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration

By Lylas G. Mogk, M.D.

There are two types of AMD: dry (atrophic) and wet (neovascular or exudative). Most AMD starts as the dry type and in 10-20% of individuals, it progresses to the wet type. Age-related macular degeneration is always bilateral (i.e., occurs in both eyes), but does not necessarily progress at the same pace in both eyes. It is therefore possible to experience the wet type in one eye and the dry type in the other.

Dry Macular Degeneration

The dry (atrophic) type affects approximately 80-90% of individuals with AMD. Its cause is unknown, it tends to progress more slowly than the wet type, and there is not—as of yet—an approved treatment or cure. In dry age-related macular degeneration, small white or yellowish deposits, called drusen, form on the retina, beneath the macula, causing it to deteriorate or degenerate over time.

Wet Macular Degeneration

The wet/neovascular type affects approximately 10-15% of individuals with age-related macular degeneration, but accounts for approximately 90% of all cases of severe vision loss from the disease.

In wet age-related macular degeneration, abnormal blood vessels under the retina begin to grow toward the macula. Because these new blood vessels are abnormal, they tend to break, bleed, and leak fluid, damaging the macula and causing it to lift up and pull away from its base. This can result in a rapid and severe loss of central vision.

Although its cause is unknown, several new treatments are now available for wet age-related macular degeneration.

You can read more about both types of macular degeneration at Macular Degeneration InternationalMacular Degeneration Partnership, and Macular Degeneration Support, where you can also view a retinal photograph of dry AMD and drusen and a retinal photograph of wet AMD (also called exudative).

Alive FloraGLO®Lutein 18 mg – Eye Health is proven to help Macular Degeneration.  For more info read here.

Plus Products Milk Thistle

Categories: Alice Chung, Alive Brand, Antioxidants, Cirrhosis, Inflammation, Liver, Psoriasis

DSC09156Milk thistle has remarkable detoxifying and liver protecting properties.  Extracted from the seeds, its active ingredient is a bioflavonoid mixture comprised principally of silymarin.  This plant derives its name from the milky white veins on its spikey leaves.  In ancient Greece and Rome, it was often used to treat liver and gallbladder ailments.

This powerful antioxidant protects cell membranes from free radical damage.  Milk thistle is valuable in treating viral and alcoholic hepatitis and cirrhosis of the liver, psoriasis and gallstones.

The most important benefit of milk thistle is its ability to fortify the liver, one of the body’s most vital organs.  In addition to processing nutrients (including fats), the liver detoxifies many drugs, pollutants and alcohol.  Plus, a healthy liver produces beautiful, blemish-free skin.

Other benefits:  Milk thistle may limit damage to the liver after chemotherapy.  This herb helps clear psoriasis by reducing inflammation.  Lastly, milk thistle can aid in the prevention and treatment of gallstones by improving the flow of bile.

Contains NO: Corn, dairy, soy, gluten, wheat, or yeast.

Adult Dosage: Take 1 capsule 2 times a day.

Alive FloraGLO®Lutein 18 mg – Eye Health

Categories: Alice Chung, Alive Brand, Anti-Ageing, Antioxidants, Eye Health

DSC09127Are you on the look out for a way to protect your vision?  Alive brand Lutein is just what you need…

Promotes clear vision:  Lutein, also known as the “eye protective nutrient”, is a carotenoid (antioxidant) found in dark green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and broccoli.  This nutrient has been found helpful in the treatment and prevention of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in older adults.  As some find it challenging to obtain sufficient lutein through diet, supplements can be beneficial – but not all are created equal.  Insist on FloraGLO® Lutein, recognized by nutritional supplement companies worldwide as a quality product that will maintain its stability and potency.   Extracted from marigold flower petals, FloraGLO® Lutein has a unique and innovative purification process that has earned it patent protection in the United States, Canada and other countries.  It is used in more clinical trials than any other lutein.  The Alive Lutein Eye Formula also contains blueberry and bilberry, both of which contain antioxidant compounds.  In addition, bilberry improves blood flow to the retina.

Lutein promotes clear vision in several ways.  It absorbs the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays and also blue light.  In addition, lutein neutralizes free radicals in the retina which is the light sensitive part of the eye.  In the centre of the retina, directly behind the lens, is the macula.  The cells in this area help produce the clarity of vision needed to read and see objects.  A key measurement of eye health is the density of macular pigment because macular pigment protects the retina.  Lutein and its co-existing molecule zeaxanthin (found in FloraGLO® Lutein) are the main antioxidant pigments and the only carotenoids found in the macula and lens.

Fights Premature Skin Aging:  Lutein fights against free radicals and is also believed to absorb blue light as it penetrates skin layers.  In studies, lutein has been shown to increase skin hydration and elasticity and to decrease skin lipid peroxidation.  Lipids are oily components in the skin that provide a barrier inhibiting loss of moisture from the skin.

Contains NO: Citrus, corn, dairy, eggs, fish, gluten, lactose, shellfish, soy, wheat, yeast or pork.

Adult Dosage: Take 1 capsule once per day after a meal.

SONY DSCASK Alice

My Weight Loss Secrets!

“I eat the best I possibly can the majority of the time and I can honestly say that I crave clean calories filled with nutrients.  However, I do not deprive myself of an occasional gourmet meal!  I even call myself a foodie!  My secret is… eat clean 80% of the time.  The other 20%of the time is to not feel guilty about having a rich dish or a decadent treat and I let supplements be my weapon.”  It’s not realistic to hold yourself to perfection, so don’t!  I am 68 and feeling great and I attribute this to: my sustainable diet, my active lifestyle and of course my supplements!  I listen to my body and take the supplements I need to be the best I can be.  Our wellness team and I would love to help you determine what your perfect supplement mix is too!  For maintaining weight, I take Alive Relora Pg. 12.  This is my sleep, stress and belly fat pill!  Relora has much evidence to back it up; this is the supplement that allows me to work hard and play hard.  It helps combat stress hormone “cortisol” so that I can prevent belly fat from depositing – works best with Alive CLA Pg. 2.  Next is Alive Chitosan on Pg. 2 – this is my “fat magnet”.  Fibre and Protein are a girl’s best friend!  Try delicious All in One Progressive WheyEssentials Protein Pg. 2.  I also love Rapid Cleanse see Pg. 3.  Lastly, I take many antioxidants, but an all time favourite is Alive Astaxanthin see Pg. 7.
