The Feel Good Factor

We all go through bad patches because of changes, traumas and losses in life therefore our ability to bounce back into life with renewed enthusiasm is a big deal. This implies recharging the brain and body’s biochemistry as much as resolving psychological issues. Conventional opinion would say that the purpose of medication such as antidepressant drugs is to get you back on the road. However these drugs can often leave you worse off than you started due to a lot of side effects (e.g. Prozac has 45 listed side effects). Alternative approach suggest to correct imbalance with nutrients, not drugs. There is a particularly interesting amino acid, called 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptohan), which is found in our food and important for production of the mood-elevating chemical Serotonin in the human body.

Iron Deficiency and Anaemia

Iron deficiency is a common problem, especially for women. In fact, 5% of women between the ages of 20 and 49 have iron deficiency with anemia and 11% have iron deficiency without anemia.

A lack of iron and anemia can gradually starve the body of the oxygen resulting into extreme skin pallor, shortness of breath, heart palpitations and fatigue. Since iron  plays an important role  in regulation of metabolism and synthesize some vital substances (e.g. DNA, white blood cells and the brain chemical), iron deficiency also damages our ability to think and weakens our resistance to infection.

B Vitamins Clean Out Arteries

For decades official medicine ignored the scientific evidence suggesting that lack of three vitamins of B group – B6, B12 and, the most important, folic acid (B9) – can trigger heart and strokes. Although our arteries are clean, open and elastic at birth, the process of artery clogging ( atherosclerosis or coronary artery disease) already begins early in life. One of the factors accelerating narrowing of arteries is excess homocysteine, an amino acid, which can accumulate in the plasma and triggers arterial plague and blood clot formation. Without enough these B vitamins in the diet, homocysteine starts building up in the body and becomes drawn into the endothelial cells. It interacts with “bad LDL cholesterol” to clog arteries (more…)

Fulvic Minerals – A hidden Health Treasure

If you could travel back in time and observe our planet 35 million years ago when enormous rain-forests covered much of the earth’s land, you would see plants of enormous size. Their root systems reached deep into the earth where they could tap rich sources of inorganic minerals and convert them into biologically-friendly minerals via photosynthesis. When these giants died, the organic minerals within their structures were re-deposited and combined with fulvic acids created by soil microbes. Through this process, more complex and diverse fulvic acid mineral colloids were evolved. Over millions of years of this life and death cycle, very rich and rare Fulvic Mineral deposits were gradually formed. These deposits never did turn into oil or coal. Until recent, Fulvic acid minerals has been entirely overlooked or misunderstood. New studies have come up with some amazing facts. (more…)

CoQ10 Ubiquinol is fuel for your heart

We generally consider food as the fuel that gives us energy but it may be also worth looking at one advanced nutrition that fuels our everyday functions at both the cell and molecular levels. Each time your muscles contract, your body use ATP – energy molecules in your cells. If you decided to make push ups in a row, say a hundred, you will soon reach the point when you will not be able to make another single one – a condition called burn out. This means that at this point you have exhausted your ATPs which are generated in your cell with help of coenzyme CoQ10 – a kind of fuel for ATPs.

The most important muscle in your body is heart which is the largest consumer of the non-oxidised form of coenzyme CoQ10 called Ubuquinol. Heart also stores Ubiquinol as a bank account your money. Our body can naturally produce CoQ10 but around age of 40 production of this biochemical is drastically go down and our aging process accelerates. It addition, the people taking cholesterol lowering medication – statins drug- suffer the most because depletion of CoQ10 by these drugs. Many doctors recommend a Ubiquinol supplement when they prescribe a cholesterol in order to reduce harm by this medication to their patients CoQ10 reserves. (more…)
