SeaLicious Purified Omega 7! Dr. Oz Favourite! (palmitoleic acid)

Categories: Cancer, Cholesterol, Heart Health

Omega-7 fatty acids found in purified palmitoleic acid have amazing powers. Omega-7 is a healthy fatty acid like omega-3, that decreases body-wideseaslicous-omega-7-fatty-acid-box-180x250 inflammation, supports cardiovascular health and is beneficial for healthy brain function. Contains High EPA & DHA for effective heart health.

To read more about Omega 7′s check out Jennifer Sygo’s recent article on the National Post’s website introducing Omega 7

Dr. Oz is always talking about reducing our red meat intake as this can lead to hardening of the arteries.  We must prevent ourselves from running into heart problems as we can do something about reducing the risks of heart attacks by eating right, exercising and taking supplements such as our omega 7’s.  Dr. Oz also talks about Purified Omega 7 in addition to your regular essential fatty acids for reducing your risks of heart disease:

“Get another “odd omega” every day. You’ve already heard plenty about DHA, the great-for-you omega-3 fatty acid in fatty fish and fish or algal oil capsules. And you know of olive oil, the odd omega-9. Now research from Harvard Medical School, the Cleveland Clinic, the University of Hawaii and Japan suggest that purified omega-7s (purified Palmitoleic Acid-a C16 monounsaturated fat) have amazing powers, too.”

Dr. Oz Tip on How to Beat the Harmful Effects of the BBQ is with L-Carnosine

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Cancer, Hot products, Quick Tips

AOR L-Carnosine Fights Ageing and the Harmful Effects from the BBQ

Beat the BBQ with L-Carnosine!  Recently Dr. Oz talked about L-Carnosine on his show.  Here is what he had to say:

Although they’re delicious, grilling protein-packed chicken, omega-3 rich fish, or the occasional piece of red meat can be harmful to your body. Cooking meat quickly at high temperatures releases chemicals known as advanced glycation end products or AGEs. These AGEs promote oxidative stress and cellular inflammation, leading to premature wrinkles and, over time, even heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

To combat the AGEs released while grilling, try taking a L-carnosine supplement. Carnosine, which occurs naturally in our bodies, contains potent antioxidant activity to block the effects of AGEs. Natural carnosine levels, however, have been shown to decrease by 63% between ages 10 and 70. So it’s important to supplement your levels by taking 500 mg of L-carnosine twice per day, available for around $40 in health food stores.

Dr. OZ is all about FIGHTING Ageing.  He wants us to still be able to enjoy our summer fun such as with the BBQ, but he is always looking for a more healthy way of enjoying life!

AOR L- Carnosine One of the Most EXCITING Anti-AGEING Nutrients of 2011!

Dr. Oz recently talked about L-Carnosine, but why take it?  Anti-Aging, Supports normal cell growth, Supports healthy cellular function and even useful in sports nutrition.  What is this wonderful nutrient and where does it come from? Carnosine is a simple dipeptide (that is, two amino acids joined together – in this case, beta-alanine and histidine).  Carnosine is made by many cells in your body – and especially in muscle, heart, and brain cells. Longer-lived animals tend to have more Carnosine in their cells than do shorter-lived species, and preliminary research suggests that levels of Carnosine decline with aging (by 63% between the ages of 10 and 70 in humans).  Carnosine is here to help preserve your quality of life!

VEGA – All in One Nutritional Shake!

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Antioxidants, Brain Health, Cancer, Cholesterol, Cleansing, Digestive Health, Enzymes, New Products!, Omega 3's, Probiotics, Protein Shakes

Vega Whole Meal Replacement is NEW and Improved.  It was already a top notch product, but by staying true to their roots, Sequel Naturals is never afraid to build on their foundation.  Brendan Brazier is always on top of the health curve providing you with the best ingredients to help nourish the body!

What is New about VEGA All in One Nutritional Shake?

  • Superior nutritional profile
  • A one-scoop complete serving
  • Better digestibility
  • Improved taste and texture

Highlights On VEGA One Nutritionals Profile:

  • 1000 ORAC Antioxidant Blend: they created an all-new super-fruit blend featuring maqui, acai, goji and other berries to give you a broader range of phytonutrients with over 2 times more antioxidants per scoop.
  • Green Blend: they broadened the spectrum of greens by adding chlorophyll-rich, nutrient-dense superfoods such as kale, broccoli, spinach and alfalfa, along with chlorella, to boost the nutritional profile of Vega One with 20% more greens per scoop (for a total of three full servings of veggies per scoop!)
  • Protein: they boosted their complete protein blend with SaviSeed protein, greatly increasing the tryptophan content (an essential amino acid). Vega One now boasts 15% more protein per scoop.
  • Omega-3 (and Fiber!): we added white chia—renowned for its Omega-3 content—to bump our Omega-3s per scoop up by 20%. Chia is also one of the best-quality sources of fiber, rounding out the fiber profile of Vega One nicely.

One of the Biggest concerns in the past was the taste!  It was never the best tasting stuff, but no question the quality and nutrition was there.  This is what they have to say regarding the improvements of the TASTE!

  • Improved Taste and Texture:
  • Good-for-You Can Taste Good, Too: Beloved as it was for its nutritional profile, the number one complaint about Health Optimizer we heard loud and clear over the years was how (not so delicious) it tasted. Our research was resounding proof that the next generation of Health Optimizer needed a taste overhaul. Even some of our most loyal Vega fans admit to blending Health Optimizer into smoothies—just to make it palatable. Vega One offers premium nutrition AND great taste in the same scoop, but it can also be blended for those adventurous consumers
  • Ingredients Impact Flavor: After tasting every ingredient in Health Optimizer individually, we discovered a few elements that stood out in all the worst (tasting) ways. We replaced some vitamins and minerals in our blend with more expensive, neutral-tasting sources.
  • On-the-go Portability: Delivering exceptional nutritional value on-the-go has been one of the cornerstones of Vega formulation. Our research told us the taste of Health Optimizer was a barrier to the very portability it was designed for—Vega One is so delicious mixed with water alone, you’ll never have to sacrifice taste for travel again.

Why Keep Taking VEGA?  Because their roots are still the same…

Good for your body and the planet, Vega One Nutritional Shake is the clean, plant-based choice to fuel your healthy, active lifestyle—without compromise. Made from natural, whole food ingredients, Vega One is a convenient, all-in-one supplement, packed with:

  • 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals
  • 15 g protein
  • 6 g fibre
  • 1.5 g Omega-3
  • Antioxidants
  • Probiotics
  • Greens

Formulated by Brendan Brazier, professional Ironman triathlete and bestselling author on performance nutrition, Vega One is still free from dairy, gluten and soy, and contains no added sugar, artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners.

Available in Berry, Chocolate, Vanilla Chai and Natural flavour

TriStar Naturals – Serrapeptase, Fish Oil, Vitamin D

Categories: Arthritis, Cancer, Heart Health, Immune System, Inflammation, Omega 3's, Pain

I would like to bring some attention to TriStar Natural products.  They are very innovative and they always bring forth the best quality with scientific research to back up their claims.  They make Fish Oil, Serrapeptase to fight inflammation, Vitamin D and many more.

Here is a bit about them…

“TriStar Naturals is committed to introducing exciting natural health products designed to meet the better health needs of all Canadians. All of our products undergo a comprehensive testing procedure to ensure purity, potency and freshness.

Furthermore, every TriStar product comes with the recommendation of Dr. Zoltan P. Rona (M.D., M.Sc.).  Dr. Rona practices complementary medicine in Toronto and is the medical editor of “The Encyclopedia of Natural Healing.”
Discover for yourself the tremendous quality and value of TriStar’s growing assortment of products and learn why TriStar Naturals is the natural choice for all your wellness needs!”

Inflammation and pain is the number one reason Canadians go to their physicians!  This is a big problem because because conventional doctors have always treated inflammation with drugs and surgery. In some cases, interventions such as surgery for an inflamed appendix are life saving. So are short-term antibiotics for some infections such as pneumonitis (pneumonia). Modern medicine is wonderful in treating acute illnesses but fails miserably when it comes to chronic disease or prevention. In the majority of cases of chronic illness or inflammation, current medical treatments only serve to suppress symptoms without making any dent in the disease process itself.

Why take Serrapeptase?

No doubt many of you have heard of fighting inflammation with a hypoallergenic diet and nutritional supplements like fish oil, vitamin D and THE Magic Enzyme and your personal Packmanherbs like boswellia and turmeric. While all these may be effective in given individuals, nothing approaches the natural anti-inflammatory potency of an enzyme supplement called Serrapeptase. Doctors in Europe and Asia have been prescribing it in ever increasing frequency for just about every form of inflammation for at least the past 30 years. Serrapeptase (a.k.a. Serratio Peptidase) is a proteolytic enzyme. In other words, it breaks up and digests protein. Unlike other proteolytic enzymes that are derived from pigs, fungi or yeast, Serrapeptase is produced by bacteria in the gut of silkworms. In the concentrated form of a tablet or capsule, Serrapeptase acts as an anti-inflammatory and a pain blocker similar to aspirin, ibuprofen and other NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Aside from this very desirable property there is growing evidence that Serrapeptase inhibits the build up of plaque in the arteries. Thus, it prevents atherosclerosis, arterial blockages, strokes and heart attacks. Unlike acetylsalicylic acid, ibuprofen and other NSAIDS, Serrapeptase does not cause stomach ulcers or gastrointestinal tract bleeding.

As always, 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 to better your health! Get excited and take charge of your health. Let’s work together, along with your doctor to ensure you are doing all you can to lead a happy and healthy life. Look forward to seeing you!

Seabuckthorn Talked About on Dr. Oz

Categories: Antioxidants, Blood Pressure, Brain Health, Cancer, Cholesterol, Colon Health, Digestive Health, Eczema, Heart Health, Immune System, Joint Health, Omega 3's, Prostate Health, Psoriasis, Rosacea, Skin Care

The article below on Seabuckthorn will have everything you need to know!  I would like to thank Douglas WM Kalman who is the writer of the article.  The purpose of this article was to help customers in our Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus locations, but it would be nice to be able to enjoy the article in your own home.  Hope you enjoy!

If there is not a location near you and you would like to ask more questions or do a mail order please call: 1 866 499 9546

Just briefly, these are some of the things that Seabuckthorn is known for and Dr. Oz discussed these last week.

Uses for Seabuckthorn Supplements

Seabuckthorn is very effective for:

  • Lowering LDL, (BAD), Cholesterol, Raising HDL, (GOOD), Cholesterol,
  • Lowering High Blood Pressure, (very important is association with exercise),
  • Skin Cancer Treatment,
  • Menopause Treatment,
  • Hormone Balancing,
  • Immune Health Support,
  • Lymphatic and Mast Cells,
  • Nervous System Health Support,
  • Promoting Microcirculation,
  • Delaying Skin Senility,
  • Liver Rejuvenation,
  • Macular Degeneration,
  • Prostate Issues,
  • Gingivitis,
  • Indigestion,
  • Acid Reflux,
  • Tooth Decay,
  • Sore Throat



1) What is the difference between Seabuckthorn Seed and Fruit (Berry) Oils?

Part One:

The practical difference is the light amber colored Seed Oil absorbs into the skin faster than the very orange Fruit Oil. Always start with putting the Seed Oil on
the skin first. Get used to applying the Seed Oil, then progress to using the two oils together. This is the ultimate serum blend for the skin. It is called SBT Single Source Oil and it is a blend of one part Seed Oil and one part Fruit Oil. Creating a different blend with a higher concentration of Seed Oil makes a lot of sense; adjusting to ones individuals needs is appropriate. I encourage you to do your own “experiments” by treating your skin to different combinations. Have fun with this.

The Seed Oil, from the seed of the berry, is again, a great way to discover Seabuckthorn’s healing and regenerative properties inside and out. Try a drop on the back of your hand, and your customer’s hand, and rub it in to see how quickly and easily it absorbs and that it does not feel greasy and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple. This is how easy it is to sell.

Part Two:

Briefly, the constituent profile difference between the Oils is the Seed Oil has up to 95% EFA with the same 106 nutrients in total that fruit oil has, including 22 fatty acids, 42 lipids, 6 fat soluble Vitamins (including Vitamin K and all 8 isomers of Vitamin E), 36 kinds of Flavonoids and Phenols, Lecithin, (with the PC being 47%.), and a recently new total of 41 discovered Carotenoids. Also include 8 Phospholipids and 17 Phytosterols. The Seed Oil has Omega 3 and 6 at an optimum one to one ratio and contains less than 2% Omega 7. Seabuckthorn Seed Oil is a remarkable whole food supplement and arguably has more healthy components and constituents than any other supplement, or food, beneficial to health.

The Fruit Oil’s profile of nutrients compared to seed oil includes, 3 times more palmitic acid, is up to half palmitoleic acid, (Omega 7), twice as much Lecithin and Vitamin E and significantly more concentration of Carotenoids, specifically, Beta-Carotene and Lycopene. The dark orange color is attributed to high concentration of Carotenoids. Functionally, using straight fruit oil alone topically is not recommended because of the dark color and slower skin absorption time. No harm is done using it alone, it does create results of leaving the skin soft and supple if one is patient enough. Also internally, it stands on it’s own as a giant among supplements and whole food supplements.

2) Which products are for what? i.e. What do you use the seed oil for? What do you use the fruit oil for? Etc.

As mentioned, start with the Seed Oil first for anything from moisturizing to very therapeutic purposes, mostly skin issues and there are many internal issues Seabuckthorn is used for. It’s for everything the body needs, topically and internally. As a Canadian Company, SBT Seabuckthorn focuses on natural treatments for Acne and Rosacea and leaves the discovery of everything else to the experts. Researching the constituents contained in SBT and then researching the effects on the body of those nutrients opens up an understanding of why SBT is an effective treatment for Acne and Rosacea, keeping the context: all functions are related and affect each other.

Dr. Oz says Seabuckthorn Oil is the best thing for Acne!!

The complete internal SBT package is the four core products, Seed oil, Fruit Oil, Berry Flavone Capsules and Tea. They represent 192 of the 194 known nutrients, certified organic, all from the same plant source with the optimum delivery, or utilization system with a one to one ratio of Omega 3 and 6 to create energy and to make brand new healthy cells.

For all skin concerns including Rosacea and Acne start with the Seed Oil Topically. Again, using the Seed Oil and Fruit oil together is the ultimate serum you can put on your skin. But do the combination at a “Therapeutic Time” during your day or evening, because it takes time to soak in and for the color to settle down. If your skin is still tinted orange by the time you want to have it all soaked in, then wash off the remainder. You’ll find that it leaves the skin a wonderfully soft, supple and resilient. Following up by applying your favourite SBT Facial Cream. Berry for Rosacea, Tea for Acne, it will compound the benefits. Most peoples skin is very thirsty, so this is the ultimate and best care you can do. It absorbs quickly and may leave a perception it’s drying the skin, perseverance will result in the complete opposite being realized and pays tribute to how we need to be supplementing the skin from the inside out.

The Berry Flavone Capsule is what’s left over after the seed and fruit oils are extracted. It is 100% pure, unpasteurized and more powerful than any juice. It is dried, pulverized and has some leaf particles all in a Seed Oil base. It is very high in Vitamin C, Bioflavonoids, plant enzymes and sterols including the “Enzyme of Life”,
Super Oxide Dismutase, (SOD). This nutrient like many in Seabuckthorn is also an anti-inflammatory. It activates the body’s production of its own Antioxidants, Catalase and Glutathione Peroxidase, (Master Antioxidant), which in turn “recycle” Vitamin C and E as Free Radical Scavengers. This maximizes the efficiency of the healing processes orchestrated by the body. Taking SBT Berry Flavone capsules with the seed and fruit oil is ideal. Consider this supplementation a profound source of nutrition linking it directly to improving Cardio-vascular health from the smallest blood vessels, (Capillaries), to right back to the heart.

SBT Tea leaf has an anti-inflammatory nature primarily from Quercetin, Isorhamnetin, Kaempferol and Catechins. These are natural anti-histamines. Of course there are many other nutrients in the tea including Polyphenols, many Minerals, including Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Copper, Zinc, etc. The tea has a strong concentration of Carotenoids such as Beta-carotene, Lycopene, Lutein and Zeanathan. Ellagic acid benefits throat and esophagus membrane health. There is a profile of 12 fatty acids with Omega 3 having by far the highest concentration and Vitamin E. The leaves are a rare 24% Protein. Brewing the Tea all day or night is recommended.
It is very pleasant tasting hot or cold and has been accepted with enthusiasm by the general public. One may get up to 6 cups of tea or more per tea bag. Drinking the tea is a great way to get started with SBT Seabuckthorn. Keep in mind that the Canadian Scientists measuring the nutritional value, did it 3 times to believe the high content of nutrition. Consider SBT Tea to be the healthiest tea on the market.

3) What do I start with for resolving my (   fill in blank   )?    (i.e. Rosacea, Acne, Psoriasis, Dry Skin, Eczema, Skin Cancer, etc.)

Start with the Seed Oil, topically and internally. How much?  Topically a few drops depending on the area. 100% pure on the face, for larger areas of the body use the SBT Anti-Aging Body Cream. Internally, start with one capsule a day for one week, then go to two a day. If you have an acute health situation take more. Taking drops from the bottles is an alternative, 10 drops from once to 3 times or more a day is okay. We cannot get too much of this kind of whole food nutrition.

The SBT Single Source capsules are a step up from the Seed Oil Capsules. Everyone can start on the Single Source capsules, except for people with a very challenging Acne condition. Wait till the Acne has cleared up significantly before trying the Single Source, topically and internally.

Drinking SBT Tea maybe the preferred starting place for some.

Topically, starting with a SBT Therapeutic Moisturizing Cleansing Bar is also effective. Berry Bar for Rosacea and general conditions and Tea Bar for Acne and all other conditions.

Starting with a SBT Therapeutic Cream is also an effective way to start. The SBT Berry Cream for Rosacea and general conditions and the SBT Tea Cream for Acne and all other conditions. The Creams are water based and is a great alternative for someone not liking the idea of putting oil on their skin. Most people will want to
start Topically.

4) Which Cream is for what condition?

SBT Therapeutic Berry Cream is intended for Rosacea plus more. Has Seed and Fruit Oil.

SBT Therapeutic Tea Cream is intended for Acne plus more. Has Seed Oil and Leaf Extract.

5) Are the Seed and Fruit and Single Source Oils in the bottles edible?

Yes, the bottles of oil, seed and fruit, are exactly the same as the capsules, except without the capsule. 100% pure whole food nutrition, great for the mouth mucosa: cold sores, sore throat, cankers, gingivitis and more. Please see the clinical and studies on our website,

6) What else do I need to know about Seabuckthorn?

This is a Summary of many studies.

Seabuckthorn is known to be a Cardiotonic, stomachic, dermatropic, antioxidant, anti-infection, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-radiation, anti-constipation, healthy cholesterol maintaining, blood vessel health, blood fat reducing, pro-blood circulation and pro-natural healing, Seabuckthorn nutrition has a wide range of uses both internal and external, including the prevention and cure of cardiovascular disease, cancers, ulcers (mouth, gastrointestinal and duodenal), burns, sun burns and sun burn protection, immune disease, gastrointestinal disease, liver disease, respiratory disease, urinary disease such as yeast infection, and gynecological diseases, skin disease, wounds and infected injuries, antiallergic, insect bites, etc. As seabuckthorn oils protects the white blood cell against damage by radiation and chemotherapy and speeds up regeneration of tissue cells and promoting natural healing, it can provide essential help to those under going radiation and chemotherapy for cancer patients.

There is no better brain food; nothing else has as rich of a source of Phosopholipids, Phytosterols, Omega 3 and 6 at a natural proper ratio, full spectrum Vitamin E, etc

It is no exaggeration that seabuckthorn is a great natural herb store of natural remedies by itself, and if you decide to take just one supplement, the seed oil is a great one to start with. All other products you choose at your local Health Food Store will be more effective because of it.

Therefore Seabuckthorn Products are wonderful, whether it be the Seed Oil or Single Source with the perfect balance of EFA to utilize all other nutrients, Berry Flavone Capsules, (high in SOD, Bioflavonoids, Vit C, Immune support, stress support, etc.) to increase Glutathione production or the Fruit oil for a higher quality Lethicin, Vit E, Carotenoids etc., or the Tea, as the most nutritional tea, without caffeine.
7) Seabuckthorn and Hyaluronic Acid!

Promotes production of Hyaluronic Acid (synovial fluid), Glutathione, Co enzyme Q 10, Collagen, Alphalipoic acid, etc., making skin cells more plump for less wrinkles, easier to hydrate, more resilient to sunshine and therefore maximizing utilization of the suns energy and cells live longer. This is the true Sun Care and Anti-Aging;
getting the response from the nutrition we’ve never had, promoting the best health we can achieve.

This was a long article I know!  As always thank you for reading.  I hope you have found it useful.  We look forward to seeing you at a location near you at either Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus! Have a great rest of the week everyone.




Nutracleanse: High Fibre Food Source!

Categories: Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, Cancer, Cleansing, Colon Health, Detox, Digestive Health, Omega 3's, Weight Loss

Nutracleanse: your colon solution!

At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements we see a lot of people struggling to find some regularity in their life.  When I say “regularity” I am referring to bowel movements.  Almost half of North Americans are constipated!!  I often joke with our customers that perhaps one of the main reasons people are so up tight and have road rage or short tempers is due to constipation.  We have all experienced constipation from time to time and it is not a pleasant feeling.  With constipation comes: worry, stress, poor digestion, toxifying your body, discomfort and lastly colon cancer.

So what can you do about it?

Digestion and issues such as constipation are not a simple matter.  We often talk to people for awhile to see if they need probiotics (Renew Life’s Ultimate Flora), a cleanse (Renew Life Cleanses) or other things to move their sluggish colon along.  BUT one thing is for sure, almost EVERYONE (especially in North America) can benefit from consuming more fibre in their diet and you can do this by simply eating 1/3 of a cup of Nutracleanse every morning! Nutracleanse is filled with ground flax seeds (omega 3), psyllium husk fibre, and a blend of 3 herbs.

Other benefits of Nutracleanse:

Optimum regularity

  • Cleansing and detoxification of colon
  • Improved digestion and absorption of nutrients by the body
  • Prevention of hemorrhoids
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Assists in rebuilding of skin cells and cartilage
  • Increased energy and vitality
  • Maintenance of healthy body weight
  • Laxatives: NOT the long term solution:

    Laxatives are not the sole answer.  Many people become dependant on them as your large intestine and colon become lazy.  Therefore, for a long term solution the healthy way is through getting an adequate amount of fibre in your diet everyday.  Also, be sure to drink pleanty of water.  Other things to help lubricate the colon are: fish oil, borage oil or flax oil. Other things you can combine with your Nutracleanse that are extremely healthy are probiotics (your good bacteria). Then for good measure doing a cleanse every six months will have you in extremely good shape.  With this recipe you are looking at a healthy happy colon.

    Some Recipes:


    Add 1/3 cup oatmeal and 1/3 cup NutraCleanse to       1 cup cold water in pot with dash of salt. Heat to       boiling, stirring frequently. Turn heat down and       simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Empty       into bowl, cool for a few minutes, and serve with honey & milk. Enjoy!

    NUTRACLEANSE SMOOTHIE: High fiber recipe drink!

    Add to blender:

    1 ripe banana
    1/2 orange
    1 slice mango or papaya
    1 egg
    3/4 cup orange juice
    3/4 cup unsweetened soy milk
    1/3 cup NutraCleanse

    Put lid on blender and set speed to ‘high’ for 30 seconds. Enjoy!


    Mix 1/3 cup into 1 cup of orange juice and drink it before it starts to thicken.       (Best within 30-40 seconds) While this doesn’t replace a nice warm breakfast, it is ideal for       travelers.

    As always thank you for reading and we look forward to helping you with what ever you health concerns are.  Remember a healthy gut or digestion is number one.  If you are regular, everything else falls into place.  We look forward to helping you at a location near you!

    Vitamin D

    Categories: Bone Health, Cancer, Depression, Diabetes, Immune System, Osteoporosis, Sleep, Womans Health

    We all have heard a lot about Vitamin D and how important it is to have adequate amounts especially during the winter.  This article is a reminder to take your Vitamin D this winter.  Most of you know about Vitamin D, but sometimes it sits on the counter and we forget to take it.  Below will remind you of the reasons you shouldn’t forget.

    Research states that Vitamin D deficiency in adults can lead to osteopenia, osteoporosis, depressed moods, sleeping problems, muscle weakness, fractures, cancers, autoimmune diseases, and cardiovascular diseases. There is also some evidence that Vitamin D may reduce several types of cancer and type-1 diabetes.  Many of us especially women walk around with tiny little fractures and silcea is a mineral that is very important to combat against osteopenia (the precursor of osteoporosis) but Vitamin D also plays a vital role in preventing fractures.  Vitamin D helps absorb your calcium so it is not not just sitting there doing nothing.  Reality is calcium is useless if it doesn’t get absorbed so make sure you take a good form of calcium, such as a calcium citrate with Vitamin D and magnesium.  Keep in mind there are even better calciums such as Coral Calcium and if you are older, already have osteoporosis, or there is osteoporosis in your family the AOR Brand Bone Basics is top notch.  At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus we can take the time to explain all the differences and we can find you what suites your needs based on gender, age, family history etc.   

    So how much Vitamin D should you take?

    There are many answers.  The recommended daily value still remains at 1000iu for adults.  Then there are other factors such as: age, your current health condition (for example if you have osteoporosis), and where you live.  Basically at the moment somewhere between 1000iu and 2000iu is good.  However, there are many studies where people have reversed osteoporosis with very high levels of vitamin D, and if you wish to do this see your doctor or your naturopath.   Another point about Vitamin D is many people say  “the sun gives you Vitamin D.” Remember that your body produces the Vitamin D, but when the sun is absent, your body cannot produce it. 

    Good Brands?

    There are many: Natural Factors, AOR Drops, Sisu Sublingual, those are some suggestions.

    So keep things simple this winter, elevate your mood and keep yourself healthy by remembering to take your Vitamin D.  Vitamin D3 is what you will be looking for in the health store.  As always we look forward to helping you with your health care needs at Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus! Take care and thanks for reading.


    UMAC-CORE Marine Phytoplankton: Concentrated Marine Phytonutrients

    Categories: Cancer

    Did you know that whales feeding on phytoplankton are known to live up to 150 years?  This is remarkable and is often what we as humans try to achieve.  It is one thing to  live a long life, but more importantly a long life with quality years!  The key is to do the best you can in all areas of your life: eating raw and organic when possible, exercising, keeping active, removing unnecessary stress from your life, and lastly, taking a supplement packed with phytonutrients like UMAC CORE to ensure optimal health!

    Umac Core comes in liquid and capsules.

    The most microscopic nutrients are often the most powerful and this is the case with UMAC CORE; tiny in size, but mighty in strength and sustaining life!  If you are from British Columbia it is interesting to know that the phytonutrients in UMAC CORE are right outside your back door!  They come from the ocean surrounding Vancouver Island.  So what is UMAC CORE exactly?   UMAC CORE is a nutrient dense whole food providing a wide spectrum of essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids (protein) and rare trace minerals and it is the foundation of nutrition for all marine plants and animals! It is amazing to think that the oceans of our world have sustained life right from the beginning of time through photosynthesis.  

    While UMAC CORE is useful for improving everyday life, it is capable of doing much more than this.  It is so powerful that it helps to support cellular health.  This means that quality nutrients at the celluar level can help communication and guard us against diseases and toxins.  With excellent cellular communication comes optimal metabolic function.  UMAC CORE has been so powerful that is has helped many fight cancer.  Remember that one thing alone cannot stop cancer, but working with a combination of approaches can be most beneficial.  Therefore, adding UMAC CORE which has no side effects means you have nothing to loose.  Below is a fabulous testimonial:

    Tom Harper did research to extract and harvest the phytoplankton (marine algae) naturally from the ocean.  He recreated the phytoplanktons bloom in large tanks.  He noticed that the clams feeding on the phytoplankton were doing extremely well and he decided to start consuming the rich nutrients from the marine algae.  Harper had nothing to loose as he knew he had a rare form of lung cancer, which was both inoperable and incurable.  He was given just 9 months to live.  Today his cancer is benign and all eleven sites for biopsy were done and ALL were clear!  Also, by making lifestyle changes, healthy eating habits and continuing to eat the marine algae Harper had been a diabetic and no longer needs insulin. 

    We cannot control fate, but we can do everything we can to live a prosperous and healthy life.  Ultimately, we have the choice to eat a diet rich in deep coloured vegetables, or full of preservatives and empty nutrition.  Let’s get going and help each  other reach our potential with regards to our individual health!  As always we look forward to seeing you soon.
