Metabolism & Weight Management

Our metabolism is affected by several factors, aside from muscle mass content.  Oftentimes when a person makes up their mind to get serious about weight management and they begin to see results, they cut back on the calories even further to speed up the weight loss process. Crash dieting or eating too few caloriesmetabolism_weight_management can actually decrease your basal metabolic rate by up to 15%!

Interestingly, the temperature of the environment plays a role in metabolism, in that if you are either hot or cold the body has to work harder to maintain a normal body temperature.  Keeping the house cooler in the winter and warmer in the summer is not only good for your pocket book it can be just one more means toward weight loss.

Caffeine also increases metabolism (and is included in Ultra Therm, and Solstic Energy) as do hot spices – and remember the more muscle mass you have the more calories you’ll burn.

Have you ever experienced increased heat in the body after a meal?  Your basal metabolic rate (BMR) increases after a meal or snack because your body uses energy to digest the foods you’ve eaten.  This rise begins just after you start a meal and peaks two to three hours later.

Depending on the type of food eaten and the size of the meal, the rise in your BMR can range between 2%-30%.

  • Fats – raise the BMR 0–5%
  • Carbohydrates – raise the BMR 5–10%
  • Proteins – raise the BMR 20–30%

Eating 30 grams of protein at breakfast will do a lot to start your day out with an increase in metabolic rate.  Try any of our Protein meal replacements!  Go to https://www.naturessunshine.com/us/general/search/?q=Meal+replacement+protein+powders/?upline=490754  to order yours today!

CardioxLDL™ : Winning the Fight for Heart and Cholesterol Health

Forget what you think you know about cholesterol…that LDL and HDL levels are the most important indicators of heart wellness. Recent discoveries show that oxidized cholesterol is the true offender. Cholesterol becomes oxidized as it is exposed to free radicals within the body, and this altered cholesterol can negatively impact the healthy function and flow of the circulatory system.

 

Reducing cholesterol oxidation helps to support healthy cardiovascular aging and circulatory function within the heart. CardioxLDL™ is specifically formulated to address oxidized cholesterol. This incredible new herbal blend is poised to take America by storm. Our unique, powerful, patent-pending formula helps to modulate cholesterol oxidation and support healthy cholesterol levels without negative side effects.

BENEFITS of  CardioxLDL™

  • Modulates oxidation of LDL cholesterol* • Supports healthy cholesterol levels* • Features a powerful, proprietary antioxidant blend* • Is a clinically studied, exclusive, patent-pending formula!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

This product features the extract of the bergamot fruit (Citrus bergamia Risso), an orange-like fruit grown in Italy and bursting with polyphenols—natural antioxidants that scavenge free radicals in the body. It also harnesses the synergistic power of our proprietary blend of nine fruit and plant extracts—including turmeric, green tea, grape seed and mangosteen—that provide dynamic antioxidant support. TARGETING CUSTOMER NEEDS CardioxLDL is designed for healthy adults who want to support their heart health, specifically those concerned about oxidized cholesterol levels.

WHAT MAKES THIS FORMULA EXTRA SPECIAL?

NSP’s unique combination of bergamot extract and our powerful, proprietary antioxidant blend create a truly synergistic effect. Our clinical scientists observed enhanced antioxidant activity beyond the regular capacity of the individual ingredients, yielding a wonderfully effective formulation to support cardiovascular health.

Is Pain Kickin’ Your Butt?

I take Curcuminbp and Ayurvedic Joint Relief plus Everflex every morning for my knee pain!!!

Pain Is Expensive: Johns Hopkins University reported the annual cost of chronic pain is approximately $635 billion a year, which is more than the yearly costs for cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

Pain Is Prevalent: Prevalence estimates for pain conditions were 10 percent for moderate pain, 11 percent for severe pain, 33 percent for joint pain, 25 percent for arthritis, and 12 percent for functional disability. The American Academy of Pain Medicine tells us that there are over 100 million adults in the United States that are suffering from chronic pain – pain that persists despite the fact that the injury has healed. This doesn’t account for acute pain – pain that comes on suddenly (usually a sharp pain when you’ve injured yourself).

Pain Impacts Productivity: Adults with pain reported missing more days from work than people without pain. Pain negatively impacted three components of productivity: work days missed, number of annual hours worked and hourly wages.

Pain Medication is on The Rise: Americans are suffering from more pain than ever. The use of Vicodin has grown dramatically from 112 million doses prescribed in 2006, to 131 million doses in the U.S. today. The United States makes up only 4.6 percent of the world’s population, but consumes 80 percent of its opioids — and 99 percent of the world’s hydrocodone.

Inflammation is a natural response to injury. When it becomes chronic or systemic the process becomes a disease. Medications are often prescribed to suppress symptoms.

An Anti-Inflammatory lifestyle is critical if one wants to win the war on inflammation. Here are some of the parts of an anti-inflammatory lifestyle:

Managing Stress Limiting Alcohol Smoking Cessation Increasing Exercise Adequate  Sleep Minimizing Toxins Healthy Food Choices

Doctor Andrew Weil talks about The Anti-Inflammatory Diet which limits sweets and meats and focuses on plant foods. Herbs and spices are part of the plant food. One example of anti-inflammatory spice is curcumin.

  • Curcumin – the potent compound that gives turmeric its distinctive yellow color
  • Thousands of published studies on curcumin extract demonstrate or suggest its broad and significant medical effects, including anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Traditional Ayurvedic Medicine has safely used curcumin for over 5,000 years to support a healthy inflammatory response. Curcumin is obtained from the rhizomes of the yellow curry spice turmeric (Curcuma longa).
  • EverFlex W/Hyaluronic Acid  helps lubricate joints, boosts flexibility, may increase shock absorption and supports healthy cartilage.

What are enzymes and what do they do for you?

Although people primarily think of enzymes as a supplement to aid in digestion, that is only the tip of the iceberg. Whether healthy or sick, young or old, everyone should take enzymes. The function of these microscopic organisms is amazing. If you’re well, you’ll feel better and if you’re not then just try them and awe at the results.

Enzymes deliver nutrients, carry away toxic wastes, digest food, purify the blood, deliver hormones by feeding and fortifying the endocrine system, balance cholesterol and triglyceride levels, feed the brain and cause no harm to the body. All of these factors contribute to the strengthening of the immune system.

Enzymes:

*Enhance Blood

Is it possible that an enzyme can clean up or purify the blood? When you look at it from the simplest perspective it makes sense. It is a known fact that fungal forms, parasites, and bacteria are made up of protein, and that the shell that protects a virus in our bodies is in fact a protein coating. The enzyme protease breaks down proteins and since the invaders of our blood system are protein, it would make sense that ingesting protease on an empty stomach would help purify the blood of protein invaders.

*Break Down Fats

It is a proven fact the enzyme lipase breaks down (digests) fat. When added to your meal as a supplement it is able to do this in the digestive tract. This takes stress off the gallbladder, liver and pancreas. When taken between meals, it will be stored in the liver and called upon as needed Lipase is present in all of the Enzymedica Enzyme Fortifiers. Lypo has the highest content of lipase to aid in the digestion of fat.

*Shed Excess Weight

Many overweight people have metabolism imbalance or will soon create one. The endocrine system is our metabolism. Once we are able to fortify the endocrine system, get the bowels working regularly, and digest our food rather than turning it into fat, we have a successful combination for losing weight. This process is not instantaneous, because we have to lose fat instead of weight. A person has to lose a great deal of fat to equal one pound of weight. It takes longer, but it is more healthy and lasts longer. Best of all, it does no harm.

*Enhance Mental Capacity

Your body uses glucose called from the liver to feed and fortify the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus directs our endocrine system and is responsible for, among other things, balancing emotions. This long lasting glucose is made from the protein stored in the liver. All plant enzymes come from protein foods, thus they help fortify the liver for this function. Red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to the glands, muscles, and all the organs of the body, including the brain. Nutrients however, can only be delivered throughout the body by means of the enzyme delivery system. When this is not accomplished, you become fatigued and are less able to think clearly. Enzymedica enzymes contain some of the necessary enzymes to support the blood in delivering the nutrients required by the hypothalamus, liver, brain and all of the trillion cells found in the body.

*Improve Aging Skin

An adequate supply of enzymes are absolutely essential for keeping your skin young-looking and healthy. Enzymes fight the aging process by increasing blood supply to the skin, bringing with it life-giving nutrients and carrying away waste products that can make your skin look dull and wrinkled. Circulation slows down as we get older. Taking a complete enzyme supplement becomes more important with age.

Here is where Food Enzymes from Nature’s Sunshine comes in!

Enzymes break down food into compounds for absorption into the bloodstream.

This combination of enzymes from Nature’s Sunshine offers more complete digestive support when taken with meals. This formula includes pepsin, which is used for pre-digesting proteins in the stomach. Betaine HCl helps create an acidic environment to facilitate the activity of pepsin. After food reaches the small intestine, the enzyme pancreatin further digests protein, carbohydrates and fats in the small intestine. Pancreatin also helps to support the pancreas. Alpha amylase digests starches. Bile salt makes fats soluble, preparing them for further digestion by lipase. The enzymes bromelain and papain aid in the digestion of proteins. Bromelain also offers other health-related benefits, including relaxing smooth muscles and supporting joint health.

Taken between meals, Food Enzymes works systemically to break down proteins associated with joint health, arterial health and immune activation. One capsule will help you digest a minimum of 30 grams of protein, 30 grams of carbohydrates and 20 grams of fats.

Our Main Ingredient in our Powerhouse Blend: Acai Berry

Superfruits gt acai berry

The Açai berry is the main ingredient in our doctor formulated Superfruits GT. Açai Berries are a fruit-based source for essential fatty acids including Omega-3 and Omega-6.

Fatty acids also aid in the transport and absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.

What should I know about Acai?

  • Key Antioxidant: Bioflavonoids called Anthocyanidins
  • Holds the ranks as the #1 superfood in the world
  • An antioxidant source with exceptional ORAC values
  • Supports the body’s natural detoxification processes
  • Improves overall well-being and functionality

While the Açai berry is a recognized antioxidant resource, Superfruits GT saw the need to combine all the known superfruits in the world to create one formula. With two one (1) ounce servings of Superfruits GT, a person can meet the 3500-5000 ORAC units’ suggestion. Antioxidant theory suggests the more antioxidants you have in your body, the less damage free radicals (AKA: TOXY) can have on your healthy cells.

9 Natural Immune Boosters

natural immune boosters banner

 

 

 

 

A vital immune system can mean the difference between a pleasant winter and a miserable one. Do your part to help your body stay strong with help from these gifts from Mother Nature:

1. ECHINACEA

The root and leaves of this purple coneflower have been used for centuries by American Indians and Europeans to boost immunity. Echinacea triggers the body’s white blood cells to attack unwanted invaders. According to research, it can significantly increase the body’s white blood cell count. Specifically, this herb increases the body’s count of T-cells, interferon, interleukin and immunoglobulin.

2. PROBIOTICS (FRIENDLY FLORA)

Believe it or not, your gut is a key part of your immune system. And eating plenty of friendly bacteria (probiotics) helps strengthen your immunity!

A recent study published in Postgraduate Medicine found that women who took a daily probiotic had higher levels of T-cells. T-cells are special white blood cells that support the immune system. So say “Yum!” to yogurt or get crazy for sauerkraut. But check the labels. Some yogurts offer very minimal amounts of friendly flora. Consider taking a quality probiotic supplement.

3. VITAMIN C

Many of us hit the orange juice or eat extra oranges or grapefruits during the winter months. Citrus and other red fruits and veggies (red peppers, strawberries and even leafy greens) contain vitamin C, which helps protect and support the immune system. It also strengthens the cardiovascular system, supports eye health and more.

71

4. VITAMIN D3

Long-cherished for its support of the bones, vitamin D3 (the sunlight vitamin) is opening eyes for its immune-system benefits. Researchers are studying this nutrient to find out how it helps support immunity. It appears to help regulate the function of lymphocytes (an important type of white blood cells), the production of cytokines (another key white blood cell) and the activity of macrophages (protein messengers vital to immune function).

5. GARLIC

This flavorful and aromatic member of the onion family stimulates the production of important white blood cells. Garlic also helps quench free radicals in the bloodstream. It even supports heart health.

6. ELDERBERRY

The western U.S. and Canada are home to the Sambucus nigra or elderberry. Its properties have been studied by many scientists, and for good reason! It contains principals that stimulate the body to make cytokines, a type of protein molecule that enhances the immune system’s response to attacks. This dark-colored berry also contains powerful antioxidants, including anthocyanins.

7. MUSHROOMS

Most people think of mushrooms as a flavor enhancer or use them to bulk up a dish. But some mushrooms offer much more than that. Researchers have found that reishi and cordyceps mushrooms contain chemicals that offer a host of immune benefits, including boosting the immune system and offering lung support. And, guys, it may help with prostate health as well!

8. ZINC

This essential trace mineral supports the body’s immunity and aids with nerve function. Zinc seems to work the best when taken at the first sign of concern.

9. OLIVE LEAF

Hold the pimientos. We’re talking about olive leaf here, not cocktail garnishes or pizza toppings. The leaves of this Mediterranean staple offer a powerhouse of protection against unwanted invaders. Olive leaf contains a bitter compound called oleuropein that also provides fabulous support to the circulatory system. And it battles free radical damage.

4 TIPS TO KEEP IMMUNE SYSTEM STRONG:

  1. Minimize stress.
  2. Stay active.
  3. Eat a healthful diet. Steer clear of sugary and high-fat foods, which can slow and/or weaken immune response.
  4. Socialize. People with friends have stronger immune systems than those who feel alone. Of course, try not to socialize with people who are sick 😉

Herbal Roots……what they are and what they can do for you!

Here are some Herbs that can help with building stamina to being an antioxidant to supporting your lungs, liver, and kidneys.  They can also help with sexual vitality to helping you sleep and can also help with a gentle cleanse!  Read about them and find one that will help you!!!!

Astragalus contains several beneficial compounds that have health-protecting benefits. These include saponins, sterols, isoflavones and polysaccharides, and they may help to minimize free radical damage to membranes. Astragalus promotes the production of stem cells in bone marrow and lymph tissue and encourages their development into active immune cells. It also enhances the body’s production of immunoglobulin and stimulates macrophages. Astragalus can help activate T cells and natural killer cells. It appears to help trigger immune cells from a “resting” state into heightened activity. Astragalus has also been used as a tonic to build stamina. Ancient Chinese texts record the use of astragalus for tonifying the spleen, blood and chi.

Bayberry root bark has astringent properties. It has been used traditionally for a variety of systems and organs, including the female reproductive system, the liver, the immune system, oral health and more.

Black cohosh has been valued by many societies for its nutritional support of the female reproductive system. Low estrogen levels have been linked to common female reproductive problems. Black cohosh possesses mild estrogenic properties (phytoestrogens) and helps balance female hormone levels by binding to estrogen receptor sites. Balanced hormone levels help ease common menopausal symptoms. Black cohosh also has antispasmodic properties and helps relax muscle spasms, including those associated with premenstrual and menstrual cycles and stages.

Also called papoose root or squaw root, blue cohosh is known to women as a mild alternative to black cohosh. It is traditionally used for female glandular support.

Burdock is a common weed with giant leaves and seeds (burrs) that cling tenaciously to clothing. It has been used traditionally as a blood purifier. Burdock’s antioxidant activity may help protect the liver from toxicity. This herb also supports immune system function.

Butchers used to sweep off their cutting blocks with this herb. That’s why it is now called butcher’s broom. It is rich in flavonoids that help strengthen blood vessels.

Dandelion root has nutritive properties that support the liver, kidneys, stomach and blood. It provides nutrition for the glands responsible for maintaining already balanced blood sugar levels. Herbalists consider this plant one of the most nutrient-rich in the plant kingdom. The whole plant is edible—the flowers, the leaves and the roots. The herb is a source of many important minerals and vitamins.

Herbalists consider devil’s claw a nutritional aid for the structural and immune systems.

Pronounced “don kwy,” it is considered the queen of herbs by the Chinese and is China’s most popular herb for women. Chinese physicians use dong quai to enrich the blood, promote circulation, regulate menstruation, calm nerves and soothe the intestines.

Goldenseal’s immune-supporting properties are largely due to its hydrastine, berberine and canadine alkaloids. It is said to help support the mucous membranes that line the respiratory, digestive and urinary tracts.

Originally used by the Cherokee Indians for kidney support, hydrangea was introduced to early American settlers for similar purposes. Hydrangea is a bitter and a solvent herb. It nutritionally supports the urinary system and addresses mild edema associated with the menstrual cycle. It contains natural minerals plus silicon, flavonoids, resins and saponins.

Our concentrated extract of kava kava root helps reduce normal anxiety without impairing mental function. It promotes muscle relaxation and restful sleep without dulling the senses.

Licorice Root has a reputation for helping the entire body maintain balance. It supports the glandular system, specifically the adrenal glands. It may also help the liver.

Maca (Lepidium meyenii) , a member of the radish family, addresses the needs of the glandular system. It grows in the Andes Mountains of South America and may provide a natural means for improving sexual desire and performance. It may also support physical and mental strength in both males and females. Also known as Peruvian ginseng, maca may help enhance physical energy and endurance, promote mental clarity and concentration and boost work capacity. As an adaptogen, it helps restore stamina and buffer the effects of stress.

Marshmallow has a high mucilage content; in fact it is 25–30% polysaccharides (mucilage) and 25–30% starch, which account for its demulcent effects on the digestive tract. It has been used historically for respiratory support and to soothe mucous membranes.

Also known as Missouri Snake Root, parthenium is a perennial herb indigenous to North and South America and the West Indies. In years past, parthenium was often mislabeled as echinacea by herbal suppliers, but the plant’s properties are different from those of echinacea. Parthenium has been used traditionally to support the immune system.

Sarsaparilla is traditionally used to support the circulatory system and the liver. It also has tonic properties and has been used traditionally for skin support. It may also promote normal digestion and appetite.

Valerian has been used for occasional sleeplessness for over 1,000 years. Its ability to help relax the central nervous system, promote feelings of calm, decrease levels of anxiety and stress, and enhance sleep are known to millions the world over.

Wild Yam root supports and balances the female glandular system.

Yellow dock’s active principles include anthraquinones, which are responsible for its mild colon-stimulating activity, and tannins, which provide an astringent effect. A member of the buckwheat family, yellow dock grows abundantly throughout the U.S. Pioneers used it for nutritional support of the urinary system.

Yucca grows abundantly in the southwestern U.S. and Mexico. The plant is also called soap root, with the reference to soap coming from a long historical use of the plant’s roots as a foaming cleanser. Yucca contains large amounts of steroidal saponins, which account for its lathering ability. Saponins also support structural health due to their influence on joint health and function.

New Solutions for Your Weight-Loss Questions

Q: How can I turn up my metabolism?

A: Your metabolism, or the body’s rate of burning fuel for energy, depends on a few factors. Genetics and age definitely play a part. But you can help boost your metabolism with certain natural ingredients.

Bitter orange fruit, yerba mate and guarana stimulate metabolism with synephrine and natural caffeine. Ginger also has a metabolic-boosting effect. These ingredients are present in our new MetaboMax® Plus formula.

MetaboMax Plus may help increase metabolic fat burn along with healthy diet and exercise. In addition to the above ingredients:

• Capsicum and green tea extract help to decrease body fat.3028
• Chickweed is an integral component of our popular Fat Grabbers® formula.
• Guggulipid herb contains guggulsterones, which help maintain cholesterol levels already within the normal range and decrease circulatory fat deposits. Guggulsterones also have thyroid-stimulating activity.
• MetaboMax Plus may help you burn more calories, burn more fat and boost energy levels. It also provides beneficial antioxidants (EGCG from green tea) and may have healthful effects on already normal-range cholesterol levels.

Q: What if I don’t want any extra caffeine?
A: MetaboMax Free formula was developed in tandem with MetaboMax Plus for those who desire weight-management support without caffeine. MetaboMax Free contains capsicum, decaffeinated green tea extract, bitter orange fruit, ginger, chickweed and guggulipid.

Q: I love bread and pasta. Is there a way to block starches without Rx drugs?
A: Amylase is one of the enzymes the body uses to break down starchy foods. Carbo Grabbers with Chromium contains an amylase inhibitor derived from a bean plant, which naturally and safely interferes with the digestion of starchy carbohydrates. This interference means that undigested starches travel through the intestinal tract and are eliminated, thus reducing the calories available to your body. We’ve added patented, food-bound chromium, which helps transport glucose from the blood into the cells. Chromium can have a positive effect on blood lipid levels and helps maintain blood sugar levels already within the normal range. Don’t avoid carbohydrates. Grab them!

Q: I’m not a meat lover. Do I really need more protein in my diet?
A: Protein helps build and repair muscle tissue. And increasing your lean muscle mass increases the rate that your body burns fuel for energy.
If you don’t want to increase your meat intake, try Nutri-Burn®, a delicious, nutritious powder that supplies pure whey and calcium caseinate protein for a powerful, musclebuilding meal replacement. Lactose-free Nutri-Burn provides 25 grams of protein per serving and 60 percent or more of the Daily Value of 14 essential vitamins and minerals!

It also contains CLA (to enhance lean muscle mass), l-carnitine and green tea extract for extra fat-burning power, plant enzymes (to break down protein into amino acids for better absorption) and prebiotic fiber (to support gut health). Nutri-Burn helps boost energy levels and tastes great. For best results, use the NSP Power Shaker.
