New Chapter Bone Strength Take Care: Plant Sourced Whole Food Calcium

Categories: Bone Health, Osteoporosis, Womans Health

New Chapter is an excellent brand that is different from others as their line is always sourced from Whole Foods.  Their Bone Strength formula is

New Chapter Bone Strength Take Care

New Chapter Bone Strength Take Care

unlike any other as it is from plant source algae, not from rocks such as tradiational calciums.  We have many customers who love this calcium and Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus would like to share it with you!

Calcium Source: Plant Versus Rock

Many people think that all calcium supplements are created equal. The truth is that the most common form of calcium supplement today is derived from limestone or rock. We don’t eat rocks as part of our balanced diet, so why would we choose to supplement our bone health nutritional needs with limestone?

Our bodies understand and seek whole food sources of nutrition. That’s why New Chapter formulated Bone Strength Take Care with a whole-food plant source of calcium, magnesium, and other important trace minerals.

The calcium complex in Bone Strength Take Care is derived from a specific plant form called Lithothamnion Calcareum, sustainably harvested from pristine shores along the Icelandic coastline. Much like organic vegetables, this sea plant is allowed to mature naturally and then sustainably harvested to deliver its optimal nutritional value.

Calcium must be completely dissolved in order to be absorbed. The plant-based calcium found in Bone Strength Take Care grows in a honeycomb structure and is extremely porous, which dramatically increases the calcium’s surface area. Stomach acid can then come into greater contact with the calcium, making it easy to dissolve. Calcium carbonate sourced from limestone has a much smaller, rocky surface area and is more difficult to dissolve.

The Calcium Paradox: Concerns with Heart Health

According to the National Institutes of Health, many people don’t get enough calcium from their diet, suggesting supplementation as an alternative to meet their daily required intake. Despite this dietary deficit, emerging research suggests that isolated calcium supplementation can increase cardiovascular risk.

Calcium supplementation alone is risky because calcium requires other nutrients to be properly utilized. The “calcium paradox” holds that without adequate Vitamin K, calcium will not be deposited in the bones where it is required for maintaining bone strength, but rather in the arteries and soft tissues where it can cause stiffening. It is therefore crucial that an effective bone health supplement be formulated with the necessary nutrients and minerals to ensure the optimal utilization of calcium.

TargetCal: Bones, Not Arteries

In addition to whole-food calcium, magnesium and trace minerals, Bone Strength Take Care is formulated with TargetCal® — a proprietary blend of whole-food vitamins designed to optimize calcium absorption and utilization and avoid the “calcium paradox.”

TargetCal provides a highly bioavailable, bioactive, and long-lasting form of natural Vitamin K2 (MK-7). Vitamin K2 is the most active form of Vitamin K in bones and arteries. This key nutrient helps put calcium into our bones where we need it, and helps keep calcium out of our arteries, where we don’t. Vitamin K2 (MK-7), sourced from fermented whole food, gently redirects “lost” calcium back into the bone bank.

The TargetCal complex is completed by Vitamin D3 — which is important for calcium absorption and has been found to aid in bone support and function.* New Chapter creates whole-food complexed Vitamin D3 by culturing the nutrient with probiotics and organic whole foods.

Beyond Bone Health: Joint Health and More

In addition to the primary benefit of promoting bone health, the ingredients in Bone Strength Take Care also provide other health benefits — including joint, cardiovascular, and eye health.* The plant-source of calcium found in Bone Strength Take Care has been shown to significantly promote joint health in a placebo-controlled human clinical trial.*

Whole-Food Vitamins D3 and K1, along with Natural Vitamin K2 and Calcium have been shown to promote numerous components of cardiovascular health.* Whole-food Vitamin D3 provides many other benefits including eye, immune, digestive, and respiratory health.*

Brad King Ultimate ANTI-STRESS + Happy Sense BONUS

Categories: Belly Fat, FLYER SALE!, Mens Health, Mental Well Being, Mood, Savings At Alive!, Sleep, Stress, Weight Loss, Womans Health

Living with chronic stress at work or at home is an all-too familiar scenario for many of us these days. Excess stress can create hormonal imbalances that lead to premature aging and an obesity-like condition.  Chronic daily stress (i.e. work, school or constant worrying) can rapidly deplete the brain’s serotonin reserves, causing depression, low stress adaptation, sleep disturbances and excessive cravings for sweet and starchy foods. 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!

Dr. Oz 5 Myths About Diets

Categories: Belly Fat, Weight Loss, Womans Health

I wanted to share with you the 5 myths of dieting from the Dr Oz show.  These are myths that Alive, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus health associates often discuss with our customers.  Therefore, I wanted to reiterate this by sharing what Dr. Oz has had to say.

Diet Myth #1: Diet Soda Helps You Lose Weight

Most diet sodas are lower in calories than regular soda because they don’t use regular sugar. The problem here is the artificial sweeteners, which have been tied to weight gain. Why?

Research shows that artificial sweeteners stimulate taste receptors that sense sweetness in both the esophagus and stomach. Anticipating energy, the pancreas releases insulin, an important hormone for accumulating body fat. At the same time, chemicals are sent to the brain’s satiety center, which becomes confused as to whether or not the body is actually receiving calories.

As your body gets “tricked” by the sugar substitute, you crave more food and become susceptible to overeating in order to feel satisfied. The result? You feel even hungrier and less full, which can lead to weight gain.

Diet Myth #2: The More Calories You Cut, the More Weight You Lose

It may seem counterintuitive, but cutting too many calories from your diet can be bad for your waistline. Because 3500 calories equals about 1 pound of fat, you would need to cut 3500 calories out of your diet each week to lose 1 pound a week. In order to do this, you’d have to cut 500 calories a day to lose 1 pound a week.

The problem with severely restricting diets, however, is that they jolt your body into “starvation mode,” preventing your body from burning unwanted fat. This mechanism, which is thought to have evolved as a defense against starvation, helps the body make the most of the calories it gets from food and drink; the body, in order to keep functioning, then looks to get some of it calories from lean muscle. This results in muscle loss. Less muscle means a slower metabolic rate – and in this case, stalled weight loss.

Diet Myth #3: Pasta Makes You Fat

The problem with pasta is not the pasta itself – it’s more about portions. If you eat too much of anything, and don’t burn it off, your body will store it as fat. So whether it’s bread or pasta or rice, it’s about the volume and extra calories, not about the carbohydrates themselves. Add to that the heavy sauces and high-calorie cheeses, and no wonder pasta has such a bad rap.

They key here is practicing portion control. Pasta is okay in moderation. Dietitians recommend 2 or 3 ounces of uncooked noodles per person – or half of a one-pound box to serve a family of four.

Diet Myth #4: Eating After 8 p.m. Will Make You Put on Weight

There is some truth to this myth. Dr. Oz recommends not eating after 8 p.m. because studies have shown that you are more likely to overeat and misjudge how many calories you consume when you eat late. Fatigue may be to blame here as it may cause you to eat too much of the wrong foods, causing you to put on weight.

However, it’s not the time of day that makes you gain weight – it’s the extra calories! It does not matter when you consume the calories – if you exceed your recommended calorie intake, what you don’t burn will be stored as fat. Always be vigilant of how many calories you consume throughout the day. A healthy woman should consume between 1800-2000 calories a day.

Diet Myth #5: Reduced Fat Foods Are Healthier Alternatives

Fat is one of the things that makes food taste good. When fat is removed from foods, a lot of the flavor is removed as well. To make up for this, extras – like sugars, chemicals and thickeners – are often added to enhance the flavor and texture of these foods. These additives can be far worse for you and sometimes just as fattening as full-fat food. Additionally, “low-fat” and “fat-free” doesn’t mean low-calorie. Think about all the additives – they’ve got to turn up somewhere, right? When looking at nutrition labels, keep your eyes peeled for the sources of these calories and think twice about bringing reduced fat foods into your home. Opt for fresh or whole foods – or buy the full-fat food instead, but consume in moderation.

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.
