Supplement of the week: Designs for Health XanthOmega Krill Oil

Quick Overview

XanthOmega™ Krill Oil provides a generous 12 mg per serving of the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin to help achieve optimum benefits from this potent carotenoid. It would take eight conventional krill softgels to equal the astaxanthin levels in just one XanthOmega™ softgel! 

XanthOmega™ Krill Oil has a high phospholipid content, standardized to a minimum of 40% phospholipids, mostly as phosphatidylcholine. This updated version is considered to be a virgin krill oil -the purest form available. It contains higher phospholipid bioavailability, which enhances the absorption of the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin. Many studies suggest that this exceptionally high level of astaxanthin offers an array of benefits, which may include powerful antioxidant properties, cardiovascular health, sports performance, eye support, skin health, anti-inflammatory and gastric health support.

Product Description

Krill are tiny crustaceans found in the sea. They are the world's largest biomass and feed the largest animal, the blue whale. Krill oil extracted from Krill is a unique source of phosphatidyl choline bound to EPA and DHA. This combination confers a faster and more effective delivery of EPA and DHA in the body, and specifically to the brain, through better absorption and transport when compared to the normal triglyceride form found in fish oil. The phospholipids in krill oil are also bound to a powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin, known to cross the blood brain barrier. XanthOmega™ krill oil contains exceptionally high levels of both esterfied astaxanthin and phospholipids which account for the dark red color of the softgels. XanthOmega™ also naturally contains several other antioxidants including, canthaxanthin, beta carotene, vitamin E and trans-retinol vitamin A. These antioxidants protect this nutrient dense oil from oxidation. Designs for Health's XanthOmega™ krill oil is made using a unique cold-extraction process that converts it into stable oil. This process protects the lipids from alteration and avoids peroxidation. It is free of heavy metals and organohalide pollutants, making it extremely pure. This product does not cause reflux or regurgitation commonly experienced by those consuming regular fish oil supplements.

Quick Overview

The 14 Day Detox/Cleanse Program has been created to support the body’s natural two-phase detoxification process. This is accomplished by providing the nutrients needed to support and balance phase I and II metabolic pathways, high levels of antioxidants for safe detoxification and a comprehensive array of herbal hepatics and cholagogues to promote healthy liver function and elimination.

This program has a shorter duration than our other popular detoxification programs, yet it remains comprehensive in scope and true to the Design for Health philosophy.

Product Description

We encounter toxic substances from many different facets of life. Sources such as pesticides, herbicides, and industrial chemicals enter the body through food, water, and air supplies and become trapped in our tissues and organs, which over time can negatively impact health, reduce vitality and eventually may contribute to the development of chronic diseases.

Supplement of the Week: Designs for Health OmegAvail Synergy

  
  
  
OmegaVail Synergy

Quick Overview

This unique omega 3-6-7-9 formula contains a blend of wild deep-sea sourced fish oils containing the omega-3 fats (EPA/DHA) in the TruTG™ form, the most important omega-6 fat (GLA from borage oil), the omega-7 fat palmitoleic acid and omega-9 fat oleic acid from certified virgin organic macadamia nut oil. EPA helps keep GLA metabolism in an anti-inflammatory mode. In addition, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) plays as many important roles in human health as EPA, along with promoting brain wellness.

Designs for Health fish oil products carry the TruTG™ seal, which are delivered in the form found in nature and are of superior TG potency. The TruTG™ seal guarantees a minimum 90% triglyceride-bound (TG) omega-3 fish oils, a level that is 40% - 50% higher than the industry standard for most TG fish oil concentrate products.

As always, our fish oils are molecularly distilled and filtered to ensure purity and to maximize the removal of heavy metals, pesticides, solvents, PCBs, and other contaminants.

Why the addition of lipase?

We have added lipase as a digestive aid. Lipase is an enzyme needed for breaking down lipids (fats). Lipase is primarily produced in the pancreas but is also produced in the mouth and stomach.[12]

While most healthy individuals produce sufficient amounts of pancreatic lipase, everyone can benefit from its inclusion as it relates to better digestion of fish oils. This is supported by studies that address:
  • The importance of lipase for the efficient digestion of dietary fats [3]
  • The need for lipase for those with digestive disorders that lead to pancreatic enzyme insufficiency [2]
  • Why more lipase may be needed beyond normal production in the pancreas [4]

Using a Diet Direction Effectively

The key to successfully applying a diet direction is to build the food plan on top quality whole foods. Food quality is diminished in most restaurants and with most packaged food items. Fresh is always best.

Balancing Diet

A Balancing Diet is comprised of a higher proportion of carbohydrate foods and less fat than is found in the Building direction, though there is some overlap between the two. A prudent application of the USDA MyPlate is an example of this direction.

Original Article By Ed Bauman, M.Ed., Ph.D.

Establishing a diet direction is a way to organize the amounts and varieties of foods one chooses to consume in order to achieve a specific effect. Our lives, as with everything else in nature, run in cycles. We have daily, monthly, and seasonal cycles, as well as progressing stages of life. Learning to eat to support our nutritional requirements for all of these can help us achieve healthful eating patterns and prevent us from getting into nutrition ruts.

How To Make Sweet Potato Pancakes

  
  
  
gluten free pancakes

I previously shared a recipe I learned in Costa Rica for making Grain-Free Yucca Buns. Also on that trip to Costa Rica I came accross sweet potato flour. This is a grain-free (gluten-free) alternative to traditional pancakes. And the sweetness of the flour makes what I think is a far superior pancake to the old-school flapjacks. Try this recipe at home, you won't be disappointed!
