Wobenzym is a systemic enzyme that is widely used by many people on a daily basis.  It is helpful for not only breaking down the food we eat, but also for supporting and maintaining all other body systems.  So what exactly is a systemic enzyme and how can it benefit your body? 

Amino Acids are referred to as the building blocks of protein.  Each has a specific function, and we need them in our body for a variety of reasons.  If you work-out, you especially need them to help decrease muscle fatigue, help with muscle recovery and to build lean muscle.  We discussed the different types of Amino Acids and how they [...]

Probiotics have become widely popular to minimize digestive issues, but today people are turning to these “good” bacteria to help clear their complexions as well.   Our skin is a reflection of our inner health, so it makes sense that the more toxins we can eliminate, the better our skin will look.  Studies are showing that acne and other skin conditions [...]

Are you looking for a protein bar that won’t melt if you take it outside this summer?  There are so many varieties of bars to choose from now, and quite a few that aren’t coated in chocolate.  So, if you want a bar that doesn’t turn into a sticky mess when the temperature rises, buy one that is [...]

Studies show that a healthy dose of Vitamin D lowers your chance of having cancer or heart disease. It cuts the risk of ovarian, lung, colon or breast cancer, osteoporosis, depression, insomnia, and bone disease.  You can get most of your Vitamin D from the sun during the summer, but you should think about eating certain foods and try [...]

Some people are speculating that Fish Oil may lead to bruising more easily, along with Ginkgo, Ginger, and Garlic, and any combination of these supplements taken along with Aspirin.  The obvious reason is because Fish Oil has a blood thinning effect,  which is why it is often used to reduce clotting.  We generally take Fish Oils because they are [...]

When you think about summer you think about outdoor fun…beaches, lakes, boating, hiking and all the BBQ’s and picnics that fill up your schedule.

As the pace of life gets faster and life itself becomes more complicated, you’ll have plenty of company if you occasionally feel anxious and overwhelmed by temporary events or an over-committed schedule.  What would really help in circumstances like these is something to subdue the anxiety, but without powerful sedative or relaxant properties. Something that [...]

Some supplements seem to be a victim of their own success; they become so well-known for one thing, that any other good things about them are overlooked. We’ve recently been talking about some of these multi-purpose supplements like glutamine, alpha lipoic acid and coconut oil. Another supplement we could add to this group is SAMe. Most people think “depression” when they hear the word SAMe (which is pronounced “sammy”), and that makes sense since it’s one the very best and fastest-acting mood boosters. But there’s a few other really great benefits to taking SAMe that make it something almost anyone can benefit from. By adding SAMe to your regimen, you’ll be enhancing and protecting your health in ways that basic supplements like multis and fish oil cannot. You’ll feel SAMe working within the first few doses, especially where mood and joint comfort are concerned. But you certainly don’t have to be depressed to use SAMe. It’s gone way down in price and way up in popularity since it was introduced in the 90′s, so let’s take another look at SAMe and see if it’s something you might want to use, too.

A frequent reason people cite for not using nutritional supplements is that they’re too expensive. We think nutritional supplements are a good investment no matter what your budget. You can’t put a price on health, but you can bet insurance companies, hospitals, labs, pharmacies and doctors can put a price on your health problems. If you value your financial security, then you’re crazy to take your health for granted. And even if you’re on a shoestring budget, there are some very affordable supplements that can make a huge contribution to protecting your health. How affordable? These five supplements – as of this date – cost less than five dollars for a one month supply. And reading today’s blog, of course, costs you nothing.
