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.

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.

NOW Essential Oils – Heal Yourself Through Aromatherapy

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Aromatherapy, Digestive Health, Energy, Hot products, Inflammation, Migranes, Nail Fungas, NOW Essential Oils, Pain, Skin Care, Stress

EO-Purity-5Essential Oils are a staple in my household.  Sometimes we always think about supplements for healing and we forget the power of essential oils!  Hope you enjoy the post…

Some interesting facts and history of essential Oils:

 

  • žHealing practices dating back to 4000BC
  • The early 1900’s, significant period in the development of essential oils and their therapeutic applications.
  • Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, French chemist and perfumer, coined the phrase “Aromatherapy” in his first book:
    • Aromatherapie: Les Huiles Essentialles Hormaones Vegetales, was translated into English.
    • “Father of Aromatherapy”.

Maintaining consistent quality in natural products like NOW® Solutions Essential Oils is a complex process, especially as supply changes from season to season.

So how does NOW Solutions consistently assure the identity and purity of our essential oils? We utilize state-of-the-art testing and analysis as well as numerous checks and balances, including:

  • Identity and purity testing
  • Use of The Essential Oils compendium by Ernest Guenther, Ph.D. and Fenaroli’s Handbook of Flavor Ingredients, edited by George A. Burdock, Ph.D., to verify the correct essential oil species
  • Supplier/grower track record of providing high quality materials
  • Aroma comparisons
  • Review of essential oil processing to ensure that appropriate extraction methods are used
  • Appropriate cautionary and regulatory language

Because identity and purity are key attributes of any essential oil, testing for these attributes is the best way to ensure an oil’s quality.

Blending Essential Oils:

  • Use 1 oz./30ml of a skin care oil: 7-30 drops of essential oils
    • Fill 1 oz. bottle ½ way with a carrier oil then follow recipes drop ratio, and fill to top – this can be doubled
    • Do not exceed 30 drops per 1 oz.
  • Recipe ideas visit www.nowfoods.com/nowsolutions
  • Three groups
    • Top notes; highly volatile, evaporate quickly
    • Middle notes; stimulate main body systems
    • Bass/Base notes; evaporate slowly, calming

Want to Learn More?

NOW Solutions identity and purity testing program uses four individual tests. To explore each test in more detail and to learn the designation between Food Grade and Therapeutic Grade oils, CLICK HERE.

Most Alive, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus stores carry the majority of the Essential Oils, and if we do not have the specific one we will get it for you!

Natural Factors Ubiquinol QH Active CoQ10

Categories: Energy, FLYER SALE!, Heart Health, Hot products, SALE, Savings At Alive!

TJ1076K_NF_CEFCoQ10 is an oil-soluble, vitamin-like nutrient taken as a supplement by millions of health-conscious people across North America. The amount of CoQ10 available from our food is only a tiny fraction of the quantity needed each day. The body makes CoQ10 in a complex process that requires at least eight vitamins, trace minerals, and the amino acid tyrosine. A deficiency of any single nutrient can reduce the production of CoQ10.
With recent advancements in science, the ubiquinol form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is now available as a nutritional supplement. The latest research shows ubiquinol CoQ10 is more absorbable than the standard ubiquinone form previously used as a nutritional supplement, making it more effective for supporting heart health, increasing energy, providing antioxidant protection, and maintaining health as we age. Ubiquinol CoQ10 is quickly becoming the preferred choice of doctors, nutritionists, and consumers.

Daily supplementation with Ubiquinol QH Active CoQ10, with superior bioavailability, enhances blood levels of CoQ10, provides sustained, natural energy to fight age-related fatigue, supports heart health, and provides antioxidant protection to cells.

Natural Factors Ubiquinol QH Active CoQ10 contains Kaneka QH® ubiquinol, a branded form of ubiquinol manufactured exclusively by Kaneka Corporation, the world’s largest manufacturer of ubiquinol. Kaneka Q10 is the world’s most recognized and researched CoQ10. In fact, in nearly every major study of CoQ10, researchers have used Kaneka Q10 ubiquinol.

Summary

The latest research shows ubiquinol CoQ10 is more absorbable than the standard ubiquinone form previously used as a nutritional supplement, making it more effective for:

  • supporting heart health,
  • increasing energy,
  • providing antioxidant protection, and
  • maintaining health as we age.

Ubiquinol CoQ10 is quickly becoming the preferred choice of doctors, nutritionists, and consumers. Daily supplementation with Ubiquinol QH Active CoQ10, with superior bioavailability, enhances blood levels of CoQ10, provides sustained, natural energy to fight age-related fatigue, supports heart health, and provides antioxidant protection to cells.

Adult Dark Chocolate Multi! DECO™ By Platinum Naturals

Categories: Energy, New Products!

Taking a multivitamin has never been so enjoyable! DECO™ Adult Dark Chocolate combines the benefits of natural cocoa with vitamins anduntitled minerals in an easy to absorb formula. Now adults can look forward to taking their daily multivitamin in a healthy, dark chocolate treat.

DECO™ Adult Dark Chocolate:

  • Can minimize risk the risk of health conditions associated with poor diet or inadequate nutrition.
  • Supports traditional, sustainable farming methods and fair trade through the Sustainable Cocoa Initiative.
  • Is gluten free and formulated without yeast, corn, artificial colours or preservatives.

The information below is from Platinum Naturals explaining why their DECO™ technology is something to pay attention to…

DECO ™

Life by Chocolate

For centuries, cocoa-rich chocolate has been touted for its great taste and health benefits. The ancient Aztecs revered the healing powers of the cocoa bean. For many years chocolate was considered divine nourishment, which may explain how this plant acquired its botanical name – Theobroma cacao. In Latin the name for the cacao tree Theobroma cacao means “Food of the Gods.” Throughout history, cocoa offered several health benefits including improved heart function, stimulation of the nervous system, facilitated digestion as well as improved kidney and bowel function. In the 19th century, chocolate became a luxury item and its consumption was considered a sin rather than a remedy. Chocolate was an indulgence that was synonymous with being a rich treat, which in the 20th century then in turn became known as death by chocolate.  But over the past decade numerous human scientific studies have examined the benefits of cocoa and chocolate consumption as part of a heart healthy diet. It has proven what many through history already seemed to have known, there is life by chocolate.

Today, science has revealed that cocoa contains potent phytonutrients and antioxidants, called flavonoids. Flavonoids are antioxidants found primarily in plant-derived foods. The main flavonoid found in cocoa is flavanol, which contributes to the bitter flavour of cocoa. These abundant and biologically active phenolic plant compounds have marked antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They are also thought to be responsible for the health benefits ascribed to chocolate. Research shows that cocoa contains more antioxidants than red wine and green tea. The discovery of flavanol-rich cocoa and the multiple health benefits associated with this antioxidant has changed the perception of chocolate from sinful to healthful.

Platinum Naturals has developed a way to deliver nutrients through cocoa. Easy to absorb, DECO™ is an innovative line of supplements that combine vital nutrition with the health benefits and great taste of natural cocoa. It’s chocolate for you. It’s chocolate for life.

Vitamins Solved

For some people, taking a daily supplement can be a challenge. Large pills may be difficult to swallow. At Platinum Naturals, we want everyone (regardless of age) to benefit from daily multivitamin and mineral support. DECO™ combines natural, premium Italian chocolate with our innovative approach to supplements.  There are no tablets or capsules to swallow, which is good news for a lot of people.

For others, remembering to take a daily vitamin can be a chore. DECO™ makes supplementation a pleasurable experience. Our convenient chocolate square tablets can be taken in the morning, after lunch, on an afternoon break or after dinner. It’s a vitamin tailored for your schedule or lifestyle.

A Better Way To Absorb Your Vitamins. We put nature to work for your life.

From the aroma of the chocolate, the digestion process begins with salivation, it then continues as the square tablet is chewed and digestive enzymes are activated releasing the nutrients just as nature intended. The potent phytonutrient and rich antioxidant chocolate in DECO is the ideal medium for vitamins and minerals. Natural chocolate contains high quality fats that promote absorption. When placed in natural fats or oils, active ingredients are absorbed far more readily by cell walls using Platinum Naturals’ proprietary, award-winning process. Platinum Naturals selects the highest quality ingredients and suspends them in oil to ensure each and every nutrient is preserved and delivered to where it’s needed most. Best of all, our superior level of absorption means you’ll feel the difference Platinum Naturals’ products make.

Not only is natural chocolate a conduit for absorption, but it also enhances the stability of the square tablet due to the low water activity and barrier to oxygen.

Our Cocoa

At Platinum Naturals, we take pride in sourcing our ingredients based on quality, sustainability and fair trade practices. We have made it our mission to help preserve the finest, most flavourful cocoa plants in the world by supporting traditional, sustainable farming methods and fair trade through the Sustainable Cocoa Initiative.  As demand for cocoa increases, quality cocoa beans are often replaced with cheaper, faster-growing alternatives. The Sustainable Cocoa Initiative supports the lives of the indigenous farmers, their communities and the succession of the world’s supply of cocoa. This program facilitates native cocoa biodiversity support, income diversity through multi-cropping and investments to support farming communities that produce premium quality cocoa beans. Furthermore, this initiative also helps preserve the genealogy of traditional cocoa plants.

Due to the traditional farming methods used by the indigenous farmers to continue the cultivation of native cocoa beans, our cocoa used is traditionally farmed organically with certification fees invested to support the farmers, not towards certification logos.

Ingredient and Allergen Info

The ingredients used in DECO™ are naturally sourced. Additional information regarding our ingredients and manufacturing facility are found below:

  • Gluten free
