Categories: Bloating, Cleansing, Colon Health, Digestive Health, Eczema, Hot products, Immune System, New Products!, Probiotics, Yeast Infections

Product_Shot_0002_Ultimate-Flora-Ultra-Potent-30_LargeNext to your Multivitamin and Fish Oil, probiotics are right up there on your must have list regarding your supplements!  Renew Life’s newest probiotic is their Ultimate Flora Ultra Potent 100 Billion.  An unhealthy gut causes all kinds of health problems so protect yourself with Ultimate Flora Ultra Potent 100 Billion.

Ultimate Flora Ultra Potent 100 Billion Information

Ultimate Flora Ultra Potent is a 100 billion culture, 10 strain probiotic formula designed for those with severe digestive issues, those who have completed multiple rounds of antibiotics or for those who want to have the strongest probiotic available.

Ultimate Flora Ultra Potent contains therapeutic levels of both Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium, making it the most complete and effective probiotic supplement on the market. Each capsule provides 50 billion active cultures of Bifidobacterium and 50 billion active cultures of Lactobacilli.

Ultimate Flora Probiotics are the only encapsulated probiotic formulas that can guarantee significant quantities of the probiotics contained will survive past the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach and arrive alive in the intestinal tract. Using a unique, water based enteric coating, we ensure that the probiotics are protected, yet still able to populate in the intestinal tract.

Renew Life carries a number of different probiotic formulas. To verify if Ultimate Flora Ultra Potent is the best formulation for your condition, please view their Probiotic comparison chart.

The Most POTENT Probiotic!

  • Ultimate Flora Ultra Potent is the strongest probiotic single dose allowed in Canada delivering 100 billion beneficial bacteria to the digestive tract! It is ideal for people with severe digestive issues, who have been on multiple rounds of antibiotics or are just looking for the most potent probiotic formula available.
  • All Renew Life Ultimate Flora probiotics are enteric coated to ensure delivery past the stomach acid and the potency is guaranteed at expiry. Every high potency, multi-strain formula is developed with optimal digestive health in mind making them the best probiotics available.

 Testimonial:

Prevented yeast infections
My naturopathic doctor recommended Ultimate Flora Ultra Potent because I was on antibiotics. I had taken probiotics before while taking antibiotics and they hadn’t worked to prevent yeast infections (I am VERY prone to yeast issues). She said that the particular type of probiotics in Ultra Potent were chosen because they were not killed by antibiotics. Sure enough I didn’t get a yeast infection! I think I will continue on this and see what other great things happen.
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! 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. Our team looks forward to helping you with what ever your health concerns are.

Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega Fish Oil: Pure, Fresh and Sustainable

Categories: Brain Health, Colon Health, Heart Health, Hot products, Inflammation, Joint Health, Mental Well Being, Mood, Omega 3's

Why Nordic Naturals Fish Oil?

There are countless fish oil brands out there, but Nordic Naturals stands out from the rest.  Why?  Because making fish oils is not an extension of their line, but instead the only supplement they make.  They are passionate about their fish oil and they are about quality, purity, freshness and delivering the cleanest fish oils.  They have the research to prove it too!

Fish Oil Standards/Testing Limits from leading organizations & experts

What fish do Nordic naturals use?

Nordic Naturals uses only wild-caught, sustainably-sourced fish:

Arctic Cod (Skrei) Sourced from the Norwegian Sea Fishing regulations include quotas, minimum catch and net mesh sizes, fishing ground closures,   and net and line fishing methods

Pacific Sardines & Peruvian Anchovies Sourced from the South Pacific Ocean, off the coast of Peru A 2008 research report ranked the sustainability of the Peruvian fishery as the best in the world1
Alaskan Pink & Sockeye Salmon Sourced exclusively from Alaska’s Cook Inlet 100% of salmon is used for human or animal consumption

The environment is important and Nordic Naturals values sustainable fishing practices. Below is what they have to say.

Since our founding, Nordic Naturals has always been deeply committed to the health of our oceans. Our environmental stewardship includes:

Regulated Fishing To prevent overfishing, 100% of our fish is sourced in compliance with the Norwegian fisheries management system, which has been a model of sustainability for over 30 years.

Bycatch Prevention We use responsible fishing gear—including purse seine nets, sorting grids, and large meshes—to protect against bycatch of unintended species.

Habitat Protection We use line and net fishing methods to prevent the seafloor and ecosystem damage caused by methods such as bottom trawling and dredging.

Marine Pollution Prevention Up to 80% of marine pollution is caused by land-based sources such as runoff, sewage, and waste. Our coastal processing facilities are industry leaders in minimizing pollution and conserving resources.

Nordic Naturals also has EXCEPTIONAL freshness levels:

Protection from fishy smell, taste, and harmful free radicals
Freshness, which ensures product integrity and biological efficacy, may be the single most important quality of fish oils. Nordic Naturals’ patented, oxygen–free manufacturing process maintains the freshness of fish oil used in our products, with peroxide values (indicators of freshness) well below the European Pharmacopoeia Standard limits. The lower the peroxide value, the fresher the fish oil.

Nordic Naturals also continues to win awards for their purity levels:

Protection from harmful environmental toxins
Every batch of oil used in Nordic Naturals’ products is third-party tested for environmental toxins including heavy metals, dioxins, and PCBs, ensuring that every product exceeds international pharmaceutical standards and is at least 750 times purer than fish. Nordic Naturals was ranked #1 out of the top 10 fish oil brands in Norway for freshness, purity, and highest concentration.

1428One of Nordic Naturals most popular concentrated fish oils is their Ultimate Omega, here is what they have to say:

bulDouble-strength EPA+DHA for increased omega-3

bulSupports a healthy heart and healthy inflammatory levels*

Our most popular concentrate, Ultimate Omega offers therapeutic support for both body and mind. Without solicitation, doctors and researchers worldwide consistently choose and recommend this powerful formula. Concentrated Ultimate Omega delivers more omega-3s per serving than most other omega-3 products and has been shown by original research to support healthy glucose levels, healthy lipid levels in professional athletes, bronchial health, and the body’s ability to respond to stress in a healthy way.*

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 do to better your health!

Renew Life Life Flora Baby

Categories: Baby Health, Children's Health, Colon Health, Diarrhea, Digestive Health, Eczema, Kids Health, Parents, Probiotics

Just wanted to share with you a fabulous product for your little ones.  Probiotics are not just for you, but even your baby…

FloraBABY is a blend of probiotics (good bacteria) that is specifically formulated for the intestinal tract and colon of children. It is a no flavour powder which can easily be mixed into warm or cool drinks such as infant formula, water, juice and milk, or soft foods such as yogurt and apple sauce. This allows parents to provide probiotics to children who do not like or have a difficult time taking supplements. Please note that it should not be mixed with hot liquids or hot foods.

FloraBABY is a blend of 5 strains of probiotics normally found in children: Bifidobacterium Breve, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium Bifidum, Bifidobacterium Infantis and Bifidobacterium Longum. These 5 probiotics work synergistically to help ensure a healthy microbacterial environment in the intestinal tract of children.

The term ‘probiotic’ means supporting life. Probiotics are friendly, beneficial bacteria. These bacteria are normal inhabitants of the large and small intestines and are an important part of a healthy digestive system. Recent research shows that probiotics help improve gastrointestinal function, respiratory and allergy response, as well as help to counter the negative effects of antibiotic use. Further, these beneficial bacteria help the body to 1) produce vitamins, 2) absorb nutrients, and 3) control overgrowth of bad bacteria and fungus.

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 do to better your health!

Dr. Rona’s Healthwise Digest: Understanding Your Thyroid

Categories: Belly Fat, Cholesterol, Colon Health, Depression, Energy, Fertility, Hair Loss, Mood, Pregnancy Tips, Weight Loss

One of the best ways we can take charge of our own health is to be informed.  Thyroid problems are very common and it is important to know the signs and symptoms of what a poor functioning thyroid looks like.  People live in unecessary discomfort from hypothyroidism everyday.  I hope that Dr. Rona’s article will reach you and provide you with some in sight of what may be going on with your thyroid or perhaps someone you know.

By Dr. Zoltan P. Rona, M.D., M.Sc.
The thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped gland situated in the neck wrapped around the windpipe located just below the Adam’s apple. It controls metabolism and virtually every aspect of health including weight, mood, energy and circulation. Damage to the thyroid can lead to underactivity (hypothyroidism), overactivity (hyperthyroidism), thyroid inflammation (thyroiditis) and thyroid cancer.
The thyroid uses iodine and the amino acid tyrosine to manufacture the thyroid hormones T3 (triiodotyrosine) and T4 (thyroxine). About 80% of the hormones made are T4 while 20% is T3. It is T3 that is the more biologically active form of thyroid hormone. In order to have adequate amounts of T3 there has to be some conversion of T4 into T3. This is something that can occur both inside and outside of the thyroid.
The thyroid is controlled by a rather complex feedback mechanism. When the hypothalamus in the brain senses there is an inadequate amount of thyroid hormones present, it releases a hormone known as TRH (Thyrotropin-releasing hormone) which in turn tells the pituitary gland to release TSH which then stimulates the thyroid gland to synthesize and release more thyroid hormone (T3 and T4) into the circulation. Thus, the level of TSH goes higher in order to help the thyroid manufacture more of the hormones. The reverse occurs when there is an excess of thyroid hormone, a condition referred to as hyperthyroidism.

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 do 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.

Udo’s Oil 3-6-9 – Essential Fatty Acids Heals Your Body

Categories: Colon Health, Eczema, Inflammation, Injuries, Mood, Omega 3's, Pain, Psoriasis, Skin Care

At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus, our Spring Flyer Sale has a couple more days left.  Below is the flyer write up for Udo’s Oil 3-6-9 .

Udo’s Oil 3 6 9 – Think you don’t need to supplement with Omega 3′s? Think again…Omega-3 consumption has decreased to one sixth the level found in our food supply in the 1850s.

Of all the essential nutrients, essential fats are by far the most abused because they are perishable, chemically unstable foods. Almost all supermarket oils, including the oils used in processed foods, have been damaged by destructive processing techniques, including refining, bleaching, overheating, and/or partial hydrogenation (a process which produces deadly trans fats). Deficiency leads to deterioration of every cell, tissue, gland, organ and organ system. Udo’s Choice Oil Blend is compatible with all foods Favourite uses are in salads, protein shakes, yogurt, juices, soups, on steamed vegetables, rice, and pastas, and with balsamic vinegar for dipping. The Perfected Oil Blend includes oils from fresh flax, sesame and sunflower seeds, as well as oils from evening primrose, rice germ and oat germ. This blend is rich in GMO-free lecithin, which provides the building materials for healthy cell membranes. Udo’s includes organic coconut oil, which contains MCTs with powerful antimicrobial effects, and powerful antioxidants. Vitamin E and rosemary oil, both potent antioxidants, are added to increase freshness and to act as scavengers of free radical molecules in the body.  Nothing is left to chance with Udo’s, treat your body right with this fantastic product.

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 do to better your health!
