Ultimate Flora Ultra Potent 100 Billion Probiotic by Renew Life

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.

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! 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.

VEGA – All in One Nutritional Shake!

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Antioxidants, Brain Health, Cancer, Cholesterol, Cleansing, Digestive Health, Enzymes, New Products!, Omega 3's, Probiotics, Protein Shakes

Vega Whole Meal Replacement is NEW and Improved.  It was already a top notch product, but by staying true to their roots, Sequel Naturals is never afraid to build on their foundation.  Brendan Brazier is always on top of the health curve providing you with the best ingredients to help nourish the body!

What is New about VEGA All in One Nutritional Shake?

  • Superior nutritional profile
  • A one-scoop complete serving
  • Better digestibility
  • Improved taste and texture

Highlights On VEGA One Nutritionals Profile:

  • 1000 ORAC Antioxidant Blend: they created an all-new super-fruit blend featuring maqui, acai, goji and other berries to give you a broader range of phytonutrients with over 2 times more antioxidants per scoop.
  • Green Blend: they broadened the spectrum of greens by adding chlorophyll-rich, nutrient-dense superfoods such as kale, broccoli, spinach and alfalfa, along with chlorella, to boost the nutritional profile of Vega One with 20% more greens per scoop (for a total of three full servings of veggies per scoop!)
  • Protein: they boosted their complete protein blend with SaviSeed protein, greatly increasing the tryptophan content (an essential amino acid). Vega One now boasts 15% more protein per scoop.
  • Omega-3 (and Fiber!): we added white chia—renowned for its Omega-3 content—to bump our Omega-3s per scoop up by 20%. Chia is also one of the best-quality sources of fiber, rounding out the fiber profile of Vega One nicely.

One of the Biggest concerns in the past was the taste!  It was never the best tasting stuff, but no question the quality and nutrition was there.  This is what they have to say regarding the improvements of the TASTE!

  • Improved Taste and Texture:
  • Good-for-You Can Taste Good, Too: Beloved as it was for its nutritional profile, the number one complaint about Health Optimizer we heard loud and clear over the years was how (not so delicious) it tasted. Our research was resounding proof that the next generation of Health Optimizer needed a taste overhaul. Even some of our most loyal Vega fans admit to blending Health Optimizer into smoothies—just to make it palatable. Vega One offers premium nutrition AND great taste in the same scoop, but it can also be blended for those adventurous consumers
  • Ingredients Impact Flavor: After tasting every ingredient in Health Optimizer individually, we discovered a few elements that stood out in all the worst (tasting) ways. We replaced some vitamins and minerals in our blend with more expensive, neutral-tasting sources.
  • On-the-go Portability: Delivering exceptional nutritional value on-the-go has been one of the cornerstones of Vega formulation. Our research told us the taste of Health Optimizer was a barrier to the very portability it was designed for—Vega One is so delicious mixed with water alone, you’ll never have to sacrifice taste for travel again.

Why Keep Taking VEGA?  Because their roots are still the same…

Good for your body and the planet, Vega One Nutritional Shake is the clean, plant-based choice to fuel your healthy, active lifestyle—without compromise. Made from natural, whole food ingredients, Vega One is a convenient, all-in-one supplement, packed with:

  • 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals
  • 15 g protein
  • 6 g fibre
  • 1.5 g Omega-3
  • Antioxidants
  • Probiotics
  • Greens

Formulated by Brendan Brazier, professional Ironman triathlete and bestselling author on performance nutrition, Vega One is still free from dairy, gluten and soy, and contains no added sugar, artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners.

Available in Berry, Chocolate, Vanilla Chai and Natural flavour

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.

Taking Supplements When Pregnant or Nursing

Categories: Baby Health, Breast Health, Digestive Health, Omega 3's, Pregnancy Tips, Probiotics, Weight Loss, Womans Health

I often have women who are prenant or nursing asking me what they can take for weight loss or even what supplements they can even just take period.

I have an 8 month old at home and I know how you feel. With regards to the products discussed in my weight loss posts, it is not advised for pregnant women to take many of those.

What can you take?

You can take a good quality Whey Protein Isolate for example from the brand Progressive.

Fish Oil from Ascenta for example

Calcium Magnesium such as Coral Calcium from Alive

Really the main thing during pregnancy is to just eat the most healthy as possible. One of my favourites that always made me feel full was Kale salad. Just oil and balsamic vinegar, cracked black pepper, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes, feta cheese, pine nuts or whatever nuts you like. you can modify the salad of course if you like red peppers that is nice too. The key with Kale is it is really crunchy so you can actually put the dressing on the night before and it will be a nice texture the next day. Veges that are super dark are very rich in nutrients and it makes you full because they are so dense with lots of fibre.

Keep in mind that now is not the time to lose weight.  So just make sure you have lots of hearty healthy calories. You will feel fantastic. Also I ate more in the morning and less and less throughout the day and I slept excellent. Now I am still nursing so I have to be careful still with supplements, but I continue with my Platinum Prenatel, lots of Ascenta fish oil, cal/mag, probiotic (helps with digestion and totally safe throughout pregnancy/nursing).

A tip for breakfast is NutraCleanse!! This is amazing. Really helps regularity great for the breast milk its a fabulous product and is extremely safe, natural and healthy. You just sprinkle it on cereal or what ever you want. http://www.alivehealthblog.com/2011/05/26/nutracleanse-high-fibre-food-source/ there is the link.

Above is a just an example of a response that I often have to make.  Just wanted to share.

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 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.

Dr Oz When Bloating Becomes Toxic (Solution Renew Life Digestive Care Line)

Categories: Cleansing, Colon Health, Detox, Diarrhea, Digestive Health, Enzymes, Probiotics

First of all, Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus can certaintly relate to the statement made on Dr Oz’s show.  A woman guest specialist said: “”If I had a dollor for every time a woman came up to me and said “I suffer from bloating”, I would be a millionare.””  This statement shows that you are not alone; everyday we have customer complaints regarding the pain from BLOATING!  This is not something that you have to live with.  Just remember that there is no single solution that will work for everyone.  It is important to not get stressed about your bloating, but to be proactive and get help.

You may have heard of Brenda Watson, she is the founder of Renew Life.  Here is a little background on her:

“To understand what makes Renew Life a special company, one must first know the story of Brenda Watson, who founded Renew Life in 1997. Suffering from poor health and chronic aliments, Brenda began her journey towards better health by embracing the philosophies of Bernard Jensen (a holistic nutritionist and pioneer in the health field). She quickly realized that through cleansing and proper dietary choices, her health was improving for the better.”

Cleansing, enzymes, fibre and probiotics these are all things that help the digestive system.  However, we are not all the same and depending on your condition you may be in need of fibre, OR you may not, this is just one example.

Examples of different conditions due to poor digestive systems:

Candida Overgrowth, Cirrhosis of the Liver, Constipation, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, Diarrhea Diverticular Disease (Diverticulosis / Diverticulitis), Gas and Bloating, Headaches and Migraines, Heartburn / Acid Reflux, Heavy Metal Toxicity, Hemorrhoids, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (I.B.S.), Leaky Gut Syndrome, Parasite Infestation, Peptic Ulcer, Poor Skin, Sluggish Liver (Poor Liver Function), Urinary Tract Infections

Therefore, this is just a general article to creat some awareness around your digestive system.  There are things you can do to improve your situation and we have helped many with the Renew Life Cleansing line.

Cleanses:

CandiGONE, CleanseSMART, First Cleanse, Heavy Metal Cleanse, LiverDETOX Kit, ParaGONE, Smokers Cleanse to name a few.

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 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.

BoulardiiMAX Probiotic by Renew Life

Categories: Bloating, Diarrhea, Probiotics

Some Probiotics are for Candida, others are for the immune system but what makes BoulardiiMax unique?  BoulardiiMAX is the strongest Saccharomyces Boulardii probiotic on the market, making it the most effective in treating the
C. Difficile outbreaks in hospitals
by stopping the overgrowth of bacteria.  BoulardiiMAX is fantastic for eradicating
the H. Pylori bacteria
which can cause heart burn, nausea, bloating, belching, and serious peptic ulcers.

Renew Life BoulardiiMAX 10 Billion Main Benefits:

  • Excellent for Traveller’s Diarrhea,
  • H. Pylori and
  • C. Difficile!

What Strain of Bacteria is Used in BoulardiiMAX?

BoulardiiMAX is a probiotic supplement of Saccharomyces boulardii, a non-colonizing yeast species. It is a non-pathogenic yeast strain that is not related to the yeast group to which Candida belongs. Saccharomyces boulardii has been isolated from the skins of tropical fruits found in Indochina. The indigenous population of Indochina has long used these fruit skins to prevent and treat diarrhea.

More Specifics on BoulardiiMAX:

Once a BoulardiiMAX capsule is ingested, the Saccharomyces boulardii becomes quickly established in the intestinal tract.  There are a number of different mechanisms by which S. boulardii works within the intestinal tract:

  1. It inhibits pathogenic bacteria adhesion to the intestinal wall, thereby stopping an overgrowth of bad bacteria.
  2. It produces an enzyme that breaks down pathogenic/bad bacteria such as C. difficile toxin A, and stimulates an antibody production against this diarrhea causing toxin.
  3. It inhibits the main inflammation regulators by changing the signaling pathways involved in inflammatory intestinal diseases.
  4. It acts on T cells which may interfere with the development of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
  5. It improves the fecal biostructure in patients with diarrhea.

As always thank you for reading!  We look forward to helping you with whatever your health concerns are at a location near you.
