I am often asked which products are my favorites. So today, I thought I would share some of them with you. These products are tried and true, they work and are safe, and I am proud to carry them at Healthy Life Solutions.
Curamin - EuroPharma
This is the #1 seller in the store right now. People daily are trying it and finding relief from their pain. Many studies are being done on curcumin and the results are exciting. Curcumin, a fantastic antioxidant, comes from the Indian herb turmeric and is responsible for its golden orange color. Adding turmeric to your diet is a wonderful idea for health, but to address stronger pain and inflammation, this good-quality concentrated curcumin comes to the rescue. Curamin also contains Boswellia and DLPA (DL-phenylalanine), making it the most effective natural product for pain that I have ever seen. Stop by the store for a sample, available only as supplies last.
Ultimate Flora - Renew Life
We are talking about the good bacteria which lives in your intestines. You may know it as Acidolphilus or Bifidolphilus. There are thousands of different types of flora and they are measured in billions, so an average adult dose would be 15 billion. Unfortunately, your gut bacteria can be compromised by drugs, such as antibiotics and birth control pills. Sometimes a bout of the flu or a prolonged illness may destroy your microbiome. The importance of this good bacteria is just now being discovered and studied. Flora is connected with your immune system, digestive health, your brain, and even weight loss. It may take 3-6 months to replenish your good flora and a supplement may only target 10 -12 strains, but it can make a great difference in your overall health.
Digestive Enzymes - Allegany Nutrition
Enzymes are in all raw food. The problem is that we cook and process almost everything that we eat. Then our pancreas has to work overtime to produce enough enzymes to finish the digestion process. Taking the supplemental digestive enzymes can give the pancreas a rest and eliminate many digestive symptoms, which otherwise would lead to further illness. Enzymes work in the stomach to break down the food into a molecular structure which can be absorbed in the intestines. Often confused with flora, which works in the intestines, enzymes are important to the proper function of the digestive process.
Vitamin Mineral – Food Research
A quality multivitamin is always a good place to start, when looking to support good health. What makes this one different is that it is truly a whole food vitamin. It is made only from foods, no synthetics. Many vitamins claim whole food on their label, but aren’t actually from food alone. Whole food vitamins are better absorbed and used by the body, and they are safer. It is hard to overdose on food, but synthetic chemicals can build up quickly causing problems. You should be able to feel the difference of a good vitamin.
CALM – Natural Vitality
Symptoms of magnesium depletion may include: stress, fatigue, low energy, inability to sleep, muscle tension, spasms and cramps, anxiousness, nervousness, irritability, headaches, weakness, PMS, hormonal imbalances, abnormal heart rhythm, or calcification of organs. Wow, that is quite a list. Try magnesium and feel amazing!
Bone Strength – New Chapter
I have a lot of customers who are concerned about osteoporosis. When they ask me for the best calcium supplement available, I show them a calcium made from red algae. Would you take a rock, or oyster shell, or a piece of coral and eat it? Nope. Just because you grind it up and put it in a capsule, doesn’t make it any more available to the body. We were meant to eat plants, not rocks. So always choose a plant or food calcium. Red algae is a good choice, naturally containing trace minerals and magnesium to help absorb the calcium. Including vitamin D is important for the bones too. Another thing I love about Bone Strength calcium is that it comes in small tablets, easy to swallow, not the typical huge horse pills!
MCT Swirl - Barlean’s
Every week, someone comes into the store asking me for something to help memory and the brain. There are a lot of herbs and brain formulas, but I always say to start with coconut oil. Our brain is mostly fat! Most of us have been told over and over to eat a low fat diet. I think low fat has been the fad for at least 30 years. Fat, cholesterol, and heart disease – the facts got twisted and then repeated, and now the theory has been disproved. We need fats! Particularly, the good fats for our brain function. Doing the low fat thing, we have literally starved the brain. So take steps today to feed your brain what it needs to function, MCT Swirl, containing medium chain triglycerides or good fat.
Nopal - Nature’s Sunshine
Commonly known as the Prickly Pear Cactus, Nopal is my favorite herb supplement for blood sugar support. Nopal enhances the body’s sensitivity to insulin and stimulates pancreatic production of insulin. Its fiber content is also beneficial, as well as its ability to lower cholesterol levels by increasing the number of LDL receptors in the liver. Studies show its blood sugar-lowering affects to last 4-6 hours after Nopal is taken. Please check your sugar levels often, as you begin taking this supplement to insure your level does not fall too low.
ALJ - Nature’s Sunshine
Literally the herbal formula that I raised my children on and now my grandchild. ALJ is designed to help relieve respiratory congestion and symptoms of the common cold, flu, bronchitis, and allergies. It has decongestant herbs and herbs to help move mucus out of the body. It comes in capsules or glycerin liquid, so it is perfect for all ages.
Lavender Oil – NOW
Sometimes known as “first aid in a bottle”, lavender essential oil is great for bug bites, rashes, wounds, and especially burns. It is also very calming, good for headaches, and to help you sleep. Lavender is a good oil to use with children or the elderly. It is one of the essential oils which may be used directly on the skin. If you are just starting to learn about essential oils, try lavender first.
Bamboo Diffuser – NOW
If you have been counting, I am now on product #11…but it is just too hard to choose! The bamboo diffuser is everyone’s favorite. It runs for 7 hours and automatically shuts off. Easy to fill and clean, just add sink water and 4-5 drops of essential oils, and turn it on. The diffuser uses a cold steam, so the medicinal qualities of the oils are not compromised.
I hope this list gives you an idea of some the wonderful products we carry at Healthy Life Solutions. My desire is to help you find solutions for your health challenges. Set a goal and achieve health one choice at a time!
