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.

Fish oil blends and concentrates bearing the TruTG™ seal are 90% to 100% triglyceride (TG) bound omega-3 oils –40%-50% higher than the industry standard for TG fish oil concentrate products!


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]

















Supplement of the Week: Designs for Health Adrenotone

  
  
  
adrenotone

Quick Overview

Adrenotone™ is a combination of standardized herbs and nutrients which are known for rejuvenating the adrenals. This product is designed to promote healthy cortisol levels, hypothalamic and pituitary function (HPTA axis), and catecholamine production (dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine).* Adrenotone™ does not contain glandulars.

 

Product Description

Adrenotone™ is a combination of standardized herbs and nutrients created to be an all-in-one adrenal support product.  This product is designed to balance cortisol levels, promote healthy hypothalamic and pituitary function (HPTA axis), and replenish depleted catecholamines (dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine).

Highlights:

    • Panax quinquefolius (American ginseng) and Ashwagandha (Indian ginseng or Withania) -the ginseng family of herbs possesses a unique property of aiding in the regeneration and enhanced function of hypothalamic cortisol receptors, providing an amphoteric effect (can act as a base and an acid), which allows the body to better self-regulate cortisol levels
    • Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice root) - licorice potentiates and extends the serum life of cortisol, thereby lessening the demand on the adrenal cortex during stressful conditions
    • N-Acetyl-tyrosine -included as a critical building block of various neurotransmitters, thyroid hormones, and catecholamines (often depleted under chronic stress conditions)
Also included are the nutrients: vitamin Cpantothenic acid (B5), vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) and vitamin B2 (as Riboflavin-5-Phosphate), which play critical roles as enzyme co-factors in the balanced production of stress hormones.

*This product does not contain glandulars.

Ingredients

Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) 100 mg: Vitamin B2 (as Riboflavin-5-Phosphate) 5 mg: Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) 5 mg: Pantothenic Acid (as d-Calcium) 250 mg: N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine 75 mg: Eleuthero (Eleuthrococcus senticosus) (root) (standardized to contain 0.8% eleutherosides) 250 mg: American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius)(root)(standardized to contain 5% ginsenosides) 100 mg: Ashwaganda (Withania somnifera)(root)(standardized to contain 1.5% withanolides) 100 mg: Rhodiola Rosea (standardized to contain 3% rosavins and 1% salidrosides) 100 mg: Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra)(root) 20 mg

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!

The 10 Pillars of Primo Health: Eat Real

  
  
  
10 pillars of primo health

I recently went through a very stressful period in my life. My last semester in grad school coupled with some other unexpected changes sent me for a bit of a tailspin. My body doesn’t respond well to stress. And having an autoimmune condition, stress is a major trigger for my disorder and my body began to exhibit the toll the stress was taking on my body.

I have to admit that I did not react perfectly to this stress. I did not properly manage the stress and areas of my life began to slip off the tracks. I can’t stress enough the importance of having a strong foundation for health. And the longer one fosters that foundation and builds upon it, I believe one can better withstand the storms and challenges that come our way. My foundation was admittedly unstable for this challenge.

The 10 Pillars of Primo Health: Introduction

  
  
  
Pillars of Primo Health

Welcome to 2013! It's a new year and I'm motivated in my directives and encouraged about the work that I do. Click to read an email I sent out recently called You Are What You Eat In 2013.

To start off this new year I will be working on a new series called The Pillars of Primo Health. By pillars I mean foundational supporting parts that are key to achieving optimal health (Primo Health). I've adapted some of these from my studies and from the work of other colleagues. But this final list is my own. I've concluded that there are 10 Pillars of Primo Health.

What Is Leaky Brain Syndrome?

  
  
  
leaky brain syndrome

Do you have unexplained brain fog, trouble concentrating, memory problems, or constant anxiety? You may have what is called a leaky brain. I've previously explained what a Leaky Gut is, but what is a leaky brain?

Our brain houses our memories, our language and communication skills, our ability to move our bodies, as well as controlling our autonomic functions like heartbeat, breathing, temperature. We need to protect our brain. Your brain is your most protected organ in your body. Not only is it housed in the thick bones of the skull, it is floating in cerebrospinal fluid to protect it from damage in a head injury. We have built-in shock absorbing ability in our head!
