Lorna Vanderhaeghe – GLA Skin Oil – Imagine PMS Symptoms GONE and the Return of Beautiful Skin!!

Categories: Brain Health, Children's Health, Eczema, FLYER SALE!, Inflammation, Joint Health, Kids Health, Menopause, Mental Well Being, Savings At Alive!, Skin Care, Womans Health

As always Lorna Vanderhaeghe never disappoints.  Right now her GLA Skin Oil is in the Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus Flyer.  This is a must product. 

What to expect from this product:

  • Ensures beautiful, smooth, glowing skin
  • Improves calcium retention in bones
  • Treats eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis
  • Stops breast and period pain
  • Stops cradle cap and dermatitis in infants
  • Can also be applied topically along with oral treatment

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. To make matters worse when an enzyme in the body is impaired we can’t make the good fats GLA, EPA or DHA. We can overcome this problem by supplementation with L.V. GLA (gamma linolenic acid).  What to expect from this product: Ensures beautiful, smooth, glowing skin, Improves calcium retention in bones, Treats eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis, Stops breast and period pain, Stops cradle cap and dermatitis in infants. 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!

EACH TEASPOON CONTAINS:         GLA ……………………………………………. 500mg
VEGAN-FRIENDLY. GLUTEN-FREE. This product does not contain artificial preservatives, colours or sweeteners, dairy, soy, wheat or yeast.


RECOMMENDED DOSAGE: Adults (12 years and older): Take 1 to 2 teaspoons daily with food and/or apply to the skin as needed.

Dr. Oz: Should Men and Women Take Different Vitamins?

Categories: Alive Brand, Fertility, Menopause, Mens Health, Pregnancy Tips, Womans Health

At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus we have a variety of different brands that offer both men and womens Multi-Vitamins.  There are some important differences and Dr. Oz amoung other health professionals are here to back it up.

Examples of Brands That Offer Both Men and Women Multi-Vitamins:

  • Platinum Naturals
  • Progressive Vitamins
  • New Chapter Vitamins
  • Alive Vitamins

Those are some of your top brands.

Dr. Oz has a list of things you should pay attention to when shopping for your Multi-Vitamin:

  • No more than 3500 iu of Vitamin A to avoid toxicity.
  • Preferably no more than 30 iu of Vitamin (while it is an excellent anti-oxidant, it is a bit of a blood thinner)
  • Preferably no calcium in our multi.  It should be taken separately.  If it has it in there, no more than 200 mg of Calcium.  WHY? Because Calcium impedes the absorption of other vitamins and minerals such as iron)
  • You should avoid Iron if you are post-menopausal or male.  Women of childbearing age should consider taking 18 mg of iron a day.  Iron is one of the most common deficient minerals in women leading to fatigue, hair loss and even fertility problems.  Lorna Vanderhaeghe has one of the best Iron supplements out there called IronSmart.
  • Make sure your Multi-Vitamin has Iodine.  Very important for the healthy function of the thyroid.
  • Some ingredients a mens Multi-Vitamin may have is Saw Palamento, or Lycopene for healthy prostate, where as a womens Multi-Vitamin will have Iron.

Just remember men and women are built differently and therefore we need to be nourished differently.

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.

Preferred Nutrition: MenoSense, Bio Sil and EstroSense!

Categories: Energy, Hair Loss, Hormone Balancing, Hot products, Menopause, Mood, Nails Brittle, Womans Health

There is a lot of buzz about taking collagen these days.  While this will be of great benefit to those who want to improve their hair, skin, nails and joints there is another way with a product called BioSil by Preferred Nutrition!

It’s important to note that BioSil™ is not made out of collagen, it generates collagen. There’s a big difference. When you ingest collagen, the human body breaks it down and uses it as food. By contrast, BioSil’s™ patented ch-OSA complex helps your body to generate its own collagen to provide support for stronger, healthy and thicker hair; stronger nails; fewer fine lines and wrinkles; denser and more flexible bones.

What is it and what is the dosage?

Silicon (as Choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid) (ch-OSA). 6 mg

One capsule is equivalent to 6 drops of BioSil™ liquid.

Choline chloride, vegetarian capsule (hydroxypropylmethylcellulose,

water) with microcrystalline cellulose, water.

SUGGESTED USAGE

2 capsules daily or as directed by a health care practitioner

As always thank you all for reading!  We look forward to helping you with what ever you health needs may be!  Have a wonderful weekend.  Also we do mail orders as well, you can call toll free 1 866 49

Macasure By Sequel Naturals

Categories: Belly Fat, Energy, Fertility, Hormone Balancing, Menopause, Pregnancy Tips, Prostate Health, Womans Health

In need of natural hormone balancing?  Or how about some more pick up and go in terms of your sex drive?  Or maybe you are trying to start a family?  Or maybe you just would like to have some more energy and balance in your life?  Macasure could very well be the answer.  

What is Macasure?

MacaSure is a premium brand of certified organic gelatinized Maca Root Extract produced via a proprietary extraction process for enhanced potency and absorption. Also called “Peruvian Ginseng”, Maca is a nutritious root plant that regulates and restores ideal hormonal balance in both sexes, helps reduce stress, improves sexual function and increases energy and stamina. 

What does Macasure look like?

A turnip-like cruciferous root vegetable native to the Andean mountains in Peru,
maca is grown at altitudes of 14,000 feet where no other crops can survive making
a resilient plant incrediblyrich in amino acids, phytonutrients, fatty acids,
vitamins and minerals.

What are the Benefits?

  • Increase libido
  • Improve sexual performance
  • Alleviate menopause, PMS or andropause symptoms
  • Increase energy
  • Reduce stress and its impact on the body
  • Control cortisol levels
  • Promote restful sleep
  • Improve immunity
  • Enhance mental clarity
  • At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus, we have many testimonials from our customers.  We have had women come in that could not get rid of their hot flashes and Macasure did the trick.  We also have had couples who were trying to get pregnant, and Macasure helped considerably.  Sometimes it is a case of one partner having a low libido, or sometimes it can be the quality of the sperm and Macasure can help with this.  Also, it is important to know that Macasure by the Sequel Naturals brand is clinically proven, in fact maca’s efficacy has been supported through countless scientific studies—and thousands of years of native Peruvian medicine. MacaSure is the same form of gelatinized maca used in published human clinical trials.

    So what ever you intend to use Macasure for, just remember it is a great Valentine’s Day gift!  Definately orginal, and healthy.  Remember, Dr. Oz always recommends a little bit of love making is great for a healthy relationship.  I wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day.  Show kindness to all, and again thank you very much for reading.

    Tired of Night Sweats? Banish them with Harmony Menopause Formula!

    Categories: Belly Fat, Menopause, Stress, Womans Health

    Harmony Menopause in the Winter Flyer 120's $44.99! Until Jan31st 2011!

    Menopause is a natural process in life that every woman will go through as their menstruation ceases.  It can actually be a wonderful time in life for a lot of women, but there are many who suffer from: night sweats, hot flushes, irritability, mood swings, headaches, sleepiness, fatigue, weight gain, vaginal dryness, dry hair skin nails and other unpleasant symptoms. What causes night sweats, mood swings?

    A woman’s lifestyle is much different than it used to be.  There are different types of stress such as being in the work place, and in general life is more complicated these days.  Too much stress will be enough to upset both men and women’s hormones, which ultimately affects your health.  Other factors that cause menopause symptoms are: poor diets, and air pollutants.  Research shows that it is now common for over 70% of women in Western societies to experience difficult and uncomfortable symptoms as their hormones levels shift and change during menopause

    What can you do?

    Whether you are trying a natural herbal remedy for the first time, or you have tried many, but haven’t found one that works for you, Harmony Menopause formula is an excellent choice.  Basically, Harmony targets the underlying cause of menopause and empowers the body to balance the female hormones.  Once the hormones are balanced the body will be cool, calm, nourished, energy will improve and stress released.

    How does Harmony Menopause formula work?  (Herbal Ingredients Below)

    1. Rehmannia glutinosa: clears heat from the body, provides the relief from the hot flashes, night sweats and irritability.  The other main function is to naturally increase stamina.  Also helps to support the adrenals.
    2. Vitex agnus-castus: this herb is known and proven to be the female hormone balancer.  Vitex is proven to help relieve: headaches, anger, and breast tenderness.
    3. Angelica polymorpha (Dong Quai):this herb helps to move the blood around the body, therefore improving circulation banishing cold hands and feet.  Dong Quai also helps to nourish the skin, and hair. 
    4. Dioscorea opposita (Chinese Yam): this herb is known as the kidney tonic which helps to regulate water.  It helps digestion and moisturizes the whole body.  This herb is also helping to reduce night sweats.
    5. Paeonia lactiflora: this herb is known as the liver tonic.  With a clean liver irritability, and mood swings decrease.  By supporting the liver, the body becomes calm.
    6. Bupleurum falcatum: this herb is known as the stress reducer.  It helps clear emotional frustration, however because of this herb, you CANNOT take Harmony if you are taking anti-depressants (prescriptions).

    Calcium has been added in the formula to assist women in bone health and to help calm the nervous system.  Magnesium is there to help the absorption of calcium and it is there to help calm the nerves.  Lastly, there is vitamin D3 because many of us are deficient, and it helps to absorb calcium.

    Dosage?

    For tough menopause symptoms, take 2 in the morning and 2 at night.  For the beginning stages of menopause, or for POST menopause symptoms take 1 in the morning and 1 at night.  Also, this formula is designed to help women (young as 12 or women who have started menstruation) with PMS symptoms.  This may not make sense at first, but it all helps with Hormone Balancing, this is the key.  For mild PMS symptoms, 1 in the morning and 1 at night.  For young women such as 12 years of age, 1 a day. 

    Conflicts with any other medications?

    If you are taking prescription blood thinners or prescription anti-depressants you cannot take Harmony.  If you have more questions you can always ask your health care professional. 

    As always, thank you for reading!  Also for more information we look forward to helping you at Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus.
