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.*

Say good bye to the irritable you when you didn’t eat enough carbohydrates and say hello to the NEW you who will now be in control of your life!

What have people had to say about PGX:

I have been taking your PGX for about a month now and have dropped 7 pounds. Very easy to do if you pay attention. Keep up the good work. I’m telling everyone about it.

Thanks Very Much

A.H. – Kitchener, ON

Hi. This is not a question but a comment. I just want to say that I thank God for this supplement. It has been life changing since I have struggled most of life with sugar cravings and also the last 8 years dealing with crashing after almost every meal on a regular basis. This supplement has helped me to deal with those two problems and I notice the difference when I ran out recently and I’m waiting for 2 bottles to arrive in the mail. Believe me I’m checking my mailbox every day waiting for it. So I wanted to say thank you so much for your research and everything you have done to put this product together, I’m sure pounds drop after not being hungry all the time and controlling myself from eating sweets with PGX’s help. THANK YOU!!!!!
P.H. Wesley Chapel, FL
Update: My mood is better becasue I don’t have blood sugar levels going up and down.

ABOUT PGX:

PGX® (PolyGlycopleX®), is a novel complex of water-soluble polysaccharides (plant fibres). It was developed after many years of research, most of it focused on the link between blood sugar imbalance, appetite, and weight gain. PGX safely and effectively restores proper blood sugar levels, reduces appetite, and inhibits weight gain.

To understand how one product can do so much you need to understand the link between blood sugar, appetite and weight gain. Many overweight people do not realize that they are on a blood sugar roller coaster:their blood sugar levels rapidly rise and fall throughout the day. The brain pays close attention to this cycle. Minute by minute it monitors blood sugar levels, because a rapid drop is as threatening to the body as a loss of oxygen. When blood sugar falls, the brain sends out powerful messages designed to bring blood sugar back to appropriate levels. “Eat!” the brain demands. These messages that we recognize as food cravings are almost impossible to ignore.

 

To lose weight effectively, appetite needs to be corrected. To many this involves trying to suppress appetite, but this is a short-term, ineffective solution. For long term success, appetite needs to be corrected through blood sugar balance. PGX® has been

clinically proven to correct appetite – helping you lose weight,control and balance blood sugar levels,and even lower cholesterol.  

 

PGX® is taken with meals and is available as a softgel capsule or in granular form. PGX® is sold through grocery stores and pharmacies, health food stores, and through health care professionals and natural dispensaries.  You can feel confident in using PGX®, because it has been

proven to be safe in two independent clinical trials.

A few common signs of weak adrenal function are; overeating and weight gain, low feeling of energy, fatigue, irritability, chronic tiredness, oversleeping and frequent immune system rundown. By using the Ultimate Anti-Stress on a regular basis – in the evening – you can aid your body’s ability to replenish from the day’s unrelenting stress toll and wake up feeling refreshed!!  Another customer favourite, when all else has failed Brad King comes through!

Naka Herbs and Vitamins brings you Dr. Rona’s Healthewise Digest: Vitamin B12

Categories: Alzheimers, Depression, Energy, Mood, Stress

Vitamin B 12 is often over looked as a treatment of feeling tired and sometimes to get to the route of being tired it requires a complicated approach, but sometimes it is simple as a B 12 deficiency.  Below is the beginning of Dr. Rona’s Healthwise Gigest article on Vitamin B12.  I hope you find the information useful.

You complain about digestive disturbances and chronic fatigue. After your workout you are far from energized – you are even more tired. You feel like you are just not getting enough air, feel weak and experience numbness and tingling in your hands and feet. The worst part, however, is not being able to remember anything and you feel an ongoing anxiety – worrying about the least little thing. Often you even feel depressed, lethargic. You have ruled out all possible pathology as well as hidden food sensitivities, which can mimic many diseases. Your doctor cannot find a thing wrong with you, is recommending anti-anxiety and anti-depressant drugs, and has neglected to check for B12 deficiency.

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.

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.

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

Easy Multi Prenatal by Platinum Naturals

Categories: Baby Health, Mood, Parents, Pregnancy Tips, Womans Health

Finding out you are pregnant is one of the most exciting moments in life.  Once you know, then come all the decisions of what doctor to go with, what hospital to deliver in, or perhaps you want to have a midwife.  Will you formula feed or breast feed… and the list goes on.  One of the most common comments from expecting mothers is that during pregnancy is the healthiest they have ever been!  When it comes to choosing your prenatal multi, there are many out there on the market and it is hard to know which one is the best.  For myself, co-workers, friends and family, the favourite seems to be Easy Multi Prenatal by Platinum Naturals.

Why Easy Multi Prenatal by Platinum Naturals?

It is extremely convenient.  All you need is one a day!  It also has fish oil (DHA) in the multi.  Just a refresher of why you want fish oil in your prenatal… fish oil has the essential acid DHA which is shown to be crucial for the babies brain development.  It is also good for the mood of a child.  When kids are too excitable or have an attention deficit disorder, doctors as well as the natural health care professionals agree that a fish oil with a high concentration of DHA is key!

Also Platinum Naturals entire Easy Multi line is known for being one of the most absorbable.  You know the expression, “You are what you eat.”  Platinum’s slogan is, “You are what you absorb.”  They believe in making clean supplements with no binders or fillers.  The Easy Multi Prenatal is absorbable because it is in a liquid capsule.  What I absolutely love about this multi, is during the time period where I experienced morning sickness I was still able to get in my multi-vitamin because it was only one a day and the capsule is small.  Also there was no fishy after taste.

When to take Easy Multi Prenatal?

EasyMulti® Prenatal is a comprehensive multivitamin for pregnant, nursing mothers and those trying to conceive.
Supplementing with a high quality multivitamin with DHA during pregnancy is important to you and your baby’s health.  DHA is important for your baby’s brain and eye development, as well as their hand-eye coordination.  Unfortunately, if you are like most women, you’re probably not getting enough DHA from your diet alone.

Benefits for you and your Baby!

•    Corrects nutritional deficiencies resulting from dietary restrictions, food intolerance’s and complications of pregnancy like nausea, vomiting and poor   absorption

•    Enhances the mother’s vitality and combats feelings of exhaustion, low energy and  weakness often experienced in pregnancy
•    Helps prevent iron-deficiency anemia

•    Makes up for nutritional shortfalls in the mother’s diet and ensures that the baby has an adequate supply of nutrients
•    Increases the odds of carrying the baby to term

•    Improves the quality of breast milk
•    Contributes to the development of healthy bones and higher bone density
