Why People Don’t Buy Nutritional Supplements?

1. I tried nutritional supplements before and they didn’t work for me.

First of all, when did this person try nutritional supplements and from whom did he or she purchase them? Also, how long did he or she take the vitamins and minerals…was it just for a few days (not long enough for them to work)? A few weeks? Were they taken on a regular basis? The answers to these questions could immediately negate this reason for not taking nutritional supplements!

2. My friend told me nutritional supplements were dangerous.

It’s true that some herbs and nutritional supplements have been deemed unsafe; however, if you purchase nutritional supplements from a reputable supplier, you’re typically guaranteed a quality product or your money back (in most cases.) Remember that legitimate nutritional supplement distributors want to keep the customer satisfied, not sell them toxic merchandise.

3. I can’t afford nutritional supplements.

Ah, the old “I can’t afford that…” reasoning. While it’s true that nutritional supplements aren’t cheap, it’s important to ask whether you would WANT them to be? An inexpensive health product like ninety-nine cent

Tips to Boost Immunity

Is it all in the head? Are you born with a strong immune system to fight off disease? Can you do something about it, if you’re not? Anyway, what does it mean to have immunity? Well, a very simple explanation is that there are basically two types: active and passive immunity.

The definition of ‘immune’ is that your body is so strong and resistant to any disease that you will not succumb to it.

Active immunity is considered to be long-lasting and tends to be life-long. If you’re in this category then, whenever you’re exposed to a disease organism, your immune system will instantly start to produce antibodies to that disease. Furthermore, if you should come into contact with that disease in the future, your immune system will identify it and immediately fight it off with the stored antibodies.

Passive immunity is not inherent in your system. It is when you cannot produce enough antibodies to fight off disease, and get an external boost by injection, medication or nutritional supplements.

Healthy people with an active, innate immunity are usually referred to as being resistant to disease in general. The term immunity is

About Vitamin E

These stories all centred on a single study, which was not new research but a meta-analysis of 19 previous reports focussed on subjects already identified as suffering from chronic diseases. The applicability of its findings to the usefulness or otherwise of vitamin E in helping to prevent disease and maintain optimum health in the well population must therefore be open to serious doubt. And this one study must also be considered alongside the many which have reported the different health benefits of vitamin E since its discovery in 1922.

Numerous of these studies have demonstrated the benefits of vitamin E to cardiovascular health in terms of protecting against the onset of heart disease, in restricting the advance of the disease, and in reducing the risk of second and further heart attacks in those already affected. In common with other anti-oxidants, vitamin E also appears to protects against atherosclerosis, the hardening of the arteries which is the common precursor of serious heart problems. In fact vitamin E appears to have a general blood thinning and anti-coagulant effect similar to but much gentler and more natural than drugs such as warfarin. Vitamin E thereby helps to protect against highly

Benefits of Dandelion

The dandelion is a wild vegetable that is abundant, extremely nutritious and still free. The parts used are mostly the leaves and root. They are high in vitamin A, B, C, beta carotene, minerals and fiber.

Dandelions act as a natural diuretic and are a popular blood and liver cleanser. They are also considered a general tonic to help nourish and strengthen the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, stomach and intestines. Dandelions have been known to help with anemia, cirrhosis of the liver, hepatitis, and jaundice, reducing serum cholesterol and uric acid levels.

Dandelions have even relieved menopausal symptoms for some. Hot flashes have been linked to liver congestion in certain individuals. When there is liver congestion, previously used hormones that are ready for discard become trapped in the liver, recycled and used repeatedly, eventually causing toxicity.

Then there are those who just love to cook with dandelions. Dr Peter Gail, founder and president of The Defenders of Dandelions, has researched recipes and folklore on wild plant use by people throughout the world. He has collected over 3000 recipes for 105 plants, including over 600 for dandelions. He began eating weeds as a young boy

Know More about Folic Acid Formula

Folic acid is referred to as folate, folacin or sometimes vitamin M. Folate is basically used to describe the derivatives of a compound called, pteroylglutamic acid. This is the most commonly sold type of folate in the supplement industry. In the industry, folic acid is a term used to pteroylglutamic acid and the term folate is used to imply the derivatives of pteroylglutamic acid.

In fact the food we eat from the natural world contains mostly folates and not folic acid. Folates can be found in liver, yeast, green leafy veggies, peas, and some fruits including citrus.

The form used in fortifying foods is pteroylglutamic acid (PGA) or folic acid itself. Today the government requires fortification of certain foods with folic acid because it is so important to the human body. Mostly folic acid is fortified in cereals and flours. Folic acid can also be found by itself as a supplement or in a B vitamin complex.

Pteroylglutamic acid (PGA) is composed of three large subunits. These are pteridine, P-amino benzoic acid, and glutamic acid. As is easy to see PGA takes its name from combination of the names of the three subunits. Glutamic acid

Common Questions about Post-Workout Meal

1. Aren’t post-workout meals only important for muscle building? Do they matter at all for fat loss goals?

2. Is it best to use one of the fancy post-workout drinks or shakes that you see in the magazines or is a whole food meal better? What’s the best combo of carbs to protein to fat in a good post workout meal?

3. How soon after a workout is best to have my post workout meal?

Answers:

1. Post-workout meals are actually important for BOTH muscle building and losing body fat!

Always remember that one of the most important considerations of long term body fat loss and maintaining a lean body for life is raising your overall metabolic rate by building and maintaining adequate lean muscle mass throughout your entire body.

By consuming a good post workout meal after every workout, you assist your body in repairing and building lean muscle throughout your whole body. The more lean muscle you have, the higher your metabolic rate (even when resting)… hence, you lose fat easier and faster, and it is MUCH easier to stay lean in the long term.

Anti Anxiety Supplements

Most of us are aware that excessive stress can affect our ability to think straight, our digestive system, adrenal glands and heart. Research has however shown that whenever a stressful situation arises, there is a knock on effect. Firstly stress limits the blood supply going to the stomach, this hampers the digestive system and a temporary shut down of our immune system may follow. If we are overwhelmed with stress for an extended period we are likely to experience fatigue and exhaustion.

Although it may not be possible to avoid these stress factors in our lives there is help available. There are many natural herbal supplements, known for they’re relaxing properties which assist in combating the harmful effects of anxiety and stress. Several herbs are usually incorporated together to make a powerful formula.

We will take a look at some of the individual herbs, which go to make up some of these potent anti- anxiety supplements: –

– Jujube Seeds: – hypnotic and anti-anxiety effect used for hysteria, fatigue, sleeplessness, debility and restlessness.

– Magnolia Bark: – has anti anxiety, anti stress properties, lowers the cortisol, promotes relaxation and improves the mood.

Start Taking Nutritional Supplements

It’s been well-documented that some people who have developed memory lapses respond exceptionally well to such nutritional supplements as gingko biloba. Though there definitely seems to be an advantage to taking similar vitamins before the onset of any mental confusion, taking them afterwards can still be extremely helpful.

Of course, using nutritional supplements as early as possible is the best way to ensure good health for as long as possible; however, if you haven’t been in a position to experiment with holistic or natural treatments before now, it’s never too late to begin.

If you’re hesitant to just dive right in and begin by ordering a years supply of nutritional supplements and vitamins, that’s fine and actually quite practical and advisable. Often, it’s better to gradually build your supply of vitamins over time and continuously purchase newer ones (as they will ultimately expire or lose effectiveness.)

To help you decide where to start when implementing a later in life regimen which includes nutritional supplements and vitamins, start by asking yourself these pointed questions:

1. Are you getting adequate vitamins from your diet?
If you can honestly answer, Yes!, you probably don’t need to look
