Microscopic helpers that flush out your health problems

Not all bacteria make you ill, did you know there are good bacteria in your intestines that keep you healthy too? When an intestine is dirty, it’s overrun by bad bacteria that produce toxins and cause food to rot and decay in the gut. This intestinal waste build-up will soon become the incubator for health problems such as poor immunity, allergy, lethargy, bloatedness, bad breath and more.

Common ailments like stiffness, discomfort or even pain cam afflict people from all walks of life. These ailments can worsen when coupled with a sedentary lifestyle and poor posture.

Conenzyme Q10 for your heart  “To most natural health practitioners, Coenzyme Q10 is the most important nutrient for heart health. This is because CoQ10 is found in every cell, with the heart and the liver containing the highest levels. But as we age, we produce much less, although according to the International Coenzyme Q10 Association, we need it even more to support heart function and prevent heart diseases. CoQ10 levels are greatly lowered in people with conditions such as heart disease, or those taking Statin drugs. Taking a CoQ10 supplement is also beneficial for raising a lo..

Sour Power  “Vinegar is good for many things besides food preservation. It aids digestion, and because of the high levels of acetic acid, helps the body absorb important minerals from food, like calcium. A study cited in 2004 in the American Diabetes Association’s publication Diabetes Care indicates that vinegar holds real promise for diabetes. The results showed that vinegar may be able to inactive some of the digestive enzymes that break the carbohydrates from food into sugar, thus slowing the absorption of sugar from a meal into the bloodstream. If you tend to feel bloated..

Lutein for Bright Eyes, Healthy Vision  “Studies have shown that intake of at least 20mg of Lutein may help to reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts. Lutein cannot be produced by the human body, so it is important to ensure that you get enough Lutein from your diet. A good source of Lutein can be found in dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale, but you may need to take 6.5 large cups to obtain an equivalent of 20mg of Lutein. A good eye supplement is a worthy investment. Choose one which contains FloraGLO® Lutein, the leading bran..

Boost your Immunity  “The flu season is back with a vengeance! If you’re looking for something natural to bolster your immunity, consider Propolis. Look out for a higher content of flavonoids and Artepillin C (exclusive to Brazilian Propolis).

As testament to its effectiveness, Japan is the world’s biggest consumer of Brazilian Propolis, importing up to 90 percent of the total export from Brazil. Look out..

Hold Back Aging  “To keep joints padded and pain-free, take glucosamine with MSM and collagen. There are numerous brands available, but I personally take Lifestream’s Joint Matrix ($46.80, 240 caplets) and Collagen Beauty ($43.30, 270 caplets – special price now available). Some friends complain that glucosamine doesn’t help. This is because the formula they take comes without MSM, which is a pain reliever. If not for MSM, I wouldn’t be able to go down the stairs without wincing…. A supplement that doesn’t immediately show results but that the a..
