Sierra Sil – Health You Can Feel – Amazing Joint Formula!

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Inflammation, Injuries, Joint Health, Pain

kolke-creative-vancouver-advertising-natural-products-print-media-sierrasil-retail-pos-support-00This is a post written by a guest.  I hope you enjoy!  So many of us suffer from joint pain and it does not have to be this way.  Many have found relief with Sierra Sil which is an all natural formula.  Below is the article with testimonials at the end…

In this fast paced world we have become addicted to quick fixes for every problem we face, and our health is no exception. Drugs are often taken to relieve pain without a second thought as to what it is we are putting into our bodies. Disturbingly, these quick treatments do not eliminate the cause of our pain, yet merely mask the problem by temporarily alleviating the discomfort. What is worse is that the more drugs we take, the more we rely on them to get us through each day and night.

Fortunately, there are healthy, natural alternatives to this approach that not only decrease aches and stiffness but also supports joint health and mobility. Our overall health depends on a proper mineral balance to keep our immune system strong and healthy. The lack of specific minerals can create both acute and chronic health problems that often plague us as we age. SierraSil is a unique mineral complex straight from the earth that supports the cessation of or noticeably reduces chronic inflammation.

One of the primary mechanisms of action of the SierraSil mineral complex is its suppression of those genes responsible for triggering and perpetuating chronic inflammation. SierraSil targets and reverses inflammation. This is something that many drugs are unable to do, at best providing relief from pain symptoms, not its cause.

SierraSil is ideal for adults suffering from sore joints, aches or muscle pain. It is designed for seniors seeking improved comfort in daily routines through increased flexibility and mobility.

Here are a couple of SierraSil senior users who describe the relief they have felt:

What can I say. I am in my mid seventies and SierraSil helped my knees within 2 weeks. One month I walk more, sleep better, pain in knees and ankles almost all gone after years of severe joint pain.

Why suffer try SierraSil and you will feel the difference.

- Jerald in North Bay ON

I’m 72 years old. A favourite hobby of mine has been working on old cars and trucks, but I had to give it up. I heard about SierraSil on the radio and decided to try it. I am now walking for 40 minutes every day! Initially I was very skeptical SierraSil could help me, but now I am a true believer. All I can say is try it!

- Art Sparrow, Camrose, AB

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.*

Alive Flex Ok Takes Your Joint Pain Away

Categories: Alive Brand, Inflammation, Injuries, Joint Health, Pain

Many formulas for joint pain can be frustrating because there is always something missing.  There are so many ingredients to help with joint pain and often times customers ask, “Isn’t there just one product I can take that has everything?”  Well there is a very complete formula called Flex-OK.  We have had testimonial after testimonial from our customers.  People just love Flex-OK’s convenient and complete formula that the Alive Brand has to offer.

Each capsule contains:

  • Glucosamine Sulfate
  • Glucosamine HCL
  • MSM
  • Chondroitin Sulfate
  • Boswellia Extract
  • White Willow Bark
  • Yucca Root
  • Feverfew Leaf
  • Curcumin
  • Bromelain

Why does Flex OK work so well for people?  It works because there is no component regarding joint care left behind; all aspects of joint recovery are covered.  For example, there are natural anti-inflammatories such as curcumin to  help with fast joint pain relief, there is chondroitin to increase joint lubrication, and there is glucosamine to actually rebuild and repair joint damage.

While Flex OK is complete many people wish to combine products and this is perfectly safe.  Some recommendations would be to combine Leaf Source with Flex-OK.  Leaf Source has also been a leading product when it comes to joint pain, and the other benefit of Leaf Source is that it enhances the absorption of any other supplements you are taking.  Therefore, it is excellent to take with Flex-OK, and your multivitamin.  Another supplement that is a must is Fish Oil.  Fish Oil is so important for controlling inflammation.  It really helps with joint pain, but of course that is not all, it is excellent for Cholesterol, your heart and the brain.  Alive makes a ONE -A – DAY Ultra Concentrate formula, which is ideal for the busy person who is not a fan of liquid or having to take 4 to 6 capsules of fish oil a day.

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. Our team looks forward to helping you with what ever your health concerns are.

Categories: Alive Brand, Alzheimers, Inflammation, Joint Health

Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus Spring Flyer is almost coming to an end.  If you have inflammation and pain, one of the best kept secrets that Dr. Oz has mentioned on his show is the Indian Spice Tumeric.  Tumeric is not only good for inflammation, but also excellent in preventing Alzheimer’s Disease.  Take Tumeric along with Coconut Oil and you will be in great shape! Below is the write up from the flyer.

Alive Turmeric (Curcumin) New Formula 2X Stronger Increased to 500mg - Help for alzheimer’s and Cancer Prevention!

(Vancouver Sun) & UCLA reported that “curcumin may slow Alzheimer’s diseases” and also may

help with cancer prevention. In India, where curries (which have curcumin) are eaten daily, Alzheimer’s rates are 4.4 times lower than North America! Looks like it is time for North Americans to spice up our life with Turmeric! Turmeric (Curcuma longa) has been used for 4,000 years to treat a variety of conditions. Studies show that turmeric may help fight infections, reduce inflammation, treat digestive problems, liver problems, skin diseases, and wounds. Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant and it also stops platelets from clumping together to form blood clots. Turmeric TARGETS Inflammation which is the root of all disease and thus offers health improvements for just about everyone.

GLA is a ” Very” Essential Fat! As many of us know, unfortunately the North American diet is made up predominantly of bad fats from red meats and processed foods.

Women are always looking for something to ease PMS symptoms, GLA can help! In many women with breast pain and terrible PMS their ability to make GLA is often impaired. One trial done at the breast clinic at the University of Hong Kong used GLA for the treatment of cyclical breast pain. Of the 66 women in the study 97% responded to treatment with GLA after 6 months.  Bye bye cramps, hello beautiful healthy skin!
