Your Gut…The Gateway to Good Health

July 11, 2016

People tend to measure health in terms of levels and numbers – cholesterol,  blood sugar , blood pressure,  body mass, etc. But what they often fail to acknowledge is the condition of their gut. That’s right – their gut.

 dreamstime_s_48613980

Elie Metchnikoff, the Nobel Prize winner whose research focused on how diseases are primarily related to toxic conditions in the gut, stated “ Death begins in the colon.”  Many other scientists have concluded that how we think and feel is directly related to our digestive system, even referring to the gut as our “second brain.”  Regarding overall health, it’s important to know 75% of your immune system resides in your gut.  Equally interesting, your gastrointestinal system actually has more neurons than your spinal cord. Add to that the fact your stomach contains trillions of bacteria needed for body function, and you can see why it makes sense to pay close attention to your gut.

Symptoms such as gas, bloating, heartburn, diarrhea, constipation , bad breath, even nausea are all signs that something is not working properly.

Elimination and Reintroduction of foods is a helpful method for identifying food allergies or sensitives that may be causing GI distress. Be sure to drink plenty of water – half your body weight in ounces per day —  and  get regular exercise to assist digestion and elimination. Do your best to reduce stress, since it can cause dysfunction of the nerves in the gut wall. Lack of sleep can disrupt stomach flora, so be sure to get plenty of zzzzs.

In addition, there are some simple nutritional supplementation strategies that can support digestive health:

• If you do not have a chronic digestive disorder, a periodic cleanse & detox program can be helpful to allow your body to naturally sweep away unwanted waste and  toxins in the gut.  The cleanse program you choose should focus on more than just the colon, so you can achieve a more complete, holistic detoxification outcome.   The end result — a healthy digestive system —  can lead to proper metabolism and weight regulation.*

• Over time, undigested food is what bad bacteria and yeast will prey on, causing bloating, nausea and a lethargic feeling. Digestive enzymes are excellent to help you digest your food more completely. Taken before a meal, they efficiently break down food so it does not get left behind in your digestive tract.*

• A daily does of probiotic will  help support your body’s immunity and resiliency – remember most of your immune system is found in your gut. A probiotic assists by keeping  a healthy balance of microbial flora, and can help readjust  flora that goes out of balance.  As such, a probiotic can help with occasional indigestion, irregularity and  diarrhea. If your stomach has properly balanced flora, the nutrients you take in on a daily basis will be better absorbed and used by your body.  A good probiotic product also contains a prebiotic . Think of probiotics as fertilizer for good bacteria in your gut. The probiotic introduces the friendly bacteria into your system, while the prebiotic helps give that bacteria helpful nourishment to do their job. TIP: If you must take antibiotics, know that they can disrupt good flora in the stomach. A probiotic can help maintain the right balance of bacteria.*

• Since the gut tends to become inflamed due to stress or dietary abuse, Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids can help the stomach lining stay strong and resilient. Omegas found in fish oil are known for their ability to address inflammation in the body.*

Magnesium is a mineral important for gut health. A deficiency of this nutrient can cause constipation, which leads to slow bowel emptying and malabsorption of foods. Magnesium also facilitates proper sleep and immune function, both of which are important when you are trying to sustain good gut flora.*  Calcium is an essential component in the production of enzymes and hormones that regulate digestion.*  Plus, ongoing research shows Calcium may aid the colonization of friendly bacteria in the gut.* Many people are deficient in Magnesium and Calcium, due to depleted soils, and softened water supplies which reduce mineral content.

 • The acronym for the Standard American Diet is SAD – what a perfect fit.  The American diets does tend to be sad, woefully lacking the recommended 7 to 11 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. An overall vitamin/mineral multi can further support a healthy gastrointestinal system, by filling in the  “7 to 11 gap.”  Be sure to choose a multi that offers high antioxidant value and plenty of immune boosting nutrients – so important for sustaining a friendly gut environment.

• People needing extra digestive support should consider using a supplement with glutamine. Glutamine is an amino acid which directly supports and nourishes the health of the intestines.* It aids in the integrity of cells lining the gut.

ATP Pro: The Currency of Life

July 1, 2016

You have a million things to do today. And, what’s the one thing you absolutely need to get them done? Energy.

Energy makes your muscle work, keeps your heart beating, helps your brain perform, and so much more.

Arobics_11

Where does this energy come from in your body?

ATP, or Adenosine triphosphate, is a vital compound that stores your body’s energy in the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm of every cell of yours. Otherwise known as the “currency of life,” ATP is needed for the extraordinary amount of energy your body must produce and use each and every day.

However, your cells have a limited supply of ATP to perform all of the necessary functions your body requires of it. The moment your body starts performing strenuous work, high intensity exercise, health challenges, or even natural aging, the necessary oxygen flow and deliver gets restricted and the body’s store of critical cellular energy is reduced.

D-Ribose can help!

D-ribose provides the basic foundation for ATP and facilitates ATP being synthesized by the body. Frankly, without D-ribose, there would be no ATP. We would be left energy deficient as D-ribose helps replenish the energy levels that do get depleted once we draw upon our ATP reserves. The problem, however, most people don’t realize that when their energy stores are reduced, it can take up to several days for them to return to normal.

The solution?

Screen Shot 2016-06-01 at 1.17.08 PMWhether you’re a person who acts the best with their “battery” fully charged, an athlete, constantly doing strenuous work, or even suffer from fatigue or constant low-energy issues, a D-ribose supplementation with ATP pro can lead to beneficial effects that will positively change how you are able to spend your day.

Eniva ATP Pro contains a clinically tested and patented form of D-Ribose. It contains no artificial colors, flavors, or stimulants. It is gluten free, vegan, and vegetarian friendly. Just stir into juice or water to get that boost of energy your body needs. To learn more about Eniva ATP Pro visit http://eniva.com/atp-pro-5-3-oz/.

Why We All Need A Little More Vitamin C

June 20, 2016

 

Vitamin C is a powerhouse antioxidant. Whether facing cold and flu season, unsteady joint movement, or hoping to better support your digestion and eyes, Vitamin C helps support the body in more ways than one. An essential human nutrient, Vitamin C helps the body stay strong in the face of harmful free radicals, infections, pollutants and toxins, acts as an inhibitor of histamine, and can support the effectiveness of other antioxidants including Vitamin E.

  • Vitamin C aids with structural integrity in the body. It is required for the synthesis of collagen, the material that gives structure to bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. It also supports the normal health of gums and teeth.
  • Provides an immune boost like none other.*
  • Vitamin C helps support the metabolism of bile acid, important for digestion and the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels in the body.
  • Aids absorption of iron and other antioxidants, including Vitamin E.
  • Plays a role in the normal synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.
  • Critical nutrient for eye health and vision.

prod_vit_c_9002__23914.1429887782.1280.1280Most people are not getting enough Vitamin C in their diet and supplementation can help fill in the gap. Eniva Full SpectrumTM Vitamin C Liquid Concentrate offers a blend of sources, including whole food based components, and natural nutrient cofactors which help the Vitamin C work better.

The Bones & The Brain: BORON

June 6, 2016

 

Atom_HR_17728704Boron is a little-known nutrient that can have a big impact on your health. It occurs naturally in the earth and is considered a trace mineral essential for human wellbeing.

Where is it? Boron is naturally found in human bone, tissue, and organs and therefore research has shown promise in the use of boron for supporting bones and joints. Why? Boron improves the body’s ability to absorb calcium, magnesium, and copper, which all facilitate integration into cartilage.* It plays a very important role in minimizing dangerous conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis.

What about the brain? Boron supports neurologic and neuromuscular systems, such as brain function, hand-eye coordination, short-term memory, and concentration.

prod_boron_8022__03581.1429892051.386.513There’s more? Boron also plays a supporting role in helping maintain proper levels of Vitamin D and Magnesium in the body.* Boron is essential for estrogen production, and may have a positive impact for menopausal women and hormones related to sex drive.* Boron is also needed for maintaining proper testosterone levels in males. Among other health benefits include increasing proper cell membrane function, preventing blood clots, alleviating the risk of congestive heart failure, lowering plasma lipid levels, reduce fungal infections, and inhibit harmful enzymes from forming or acting.

However, boron can only be obtained from foods or supplementation. Consider Eniva Boron Mineral Liquid Concentrate for body balance and wellbeing. Visit http://eniva.com/boron-mineral-liquid-concentrate-16-oz/ for more information about our product.

Sulfur For Better Health?

June 1, 2016

Sulfur for Better Health?

8.3.1

Did you know that sulfur comprises .25% of your body weight?
Did you know sulfur is found in ALL connective tissue and skin in your body?
Did you know that sulfur is considered earth’s “beauty mineral” due to its strengthening and cleansing effects on your hair and skin?
Well if you didn’t, now you have an idea of why sulfur is so important for your body:

  • Water-soluble sulfur is necessary for the healthy growth of your hair and nails.
  • Sulfur supports healthy skin. Thus the reason why so many people visit hot springs (water high in sulfur) for it’s soothing and purifying benefits for your skin and joints.
  • Sulfur aids joint movement by assisting in the normal formation of new cartilage and other connective tissues.
  • Finding yourself sensitive to house dust, pollen, wool, animal hair, and feathers? Sulfur supplementation is reported to have weakened those allergies.
  • prod_sulfur_8204__02891.1429905374.1280.1280Sulfur is a key component of several amino acids, and therefore is required for many of your body’s cellular functions and synthesis of proteins. For example: the production of insulin requires sulfur. In addition, sulfur may also support normal blood circulation and muscle function.*
  • Sulfur plays an important role in energy metabolism due to the fact that is an essential component of the vitamins biotin and thiamin.
  • Concerned about your respiratory system, lung function, and breathing? Sulfur assists with tissue breathing, the process whereby oxygen and other substances are used to build cells and release energy.
  • Lastly, sulfur is used by the liver to produce choline and support normal intestinal health. It is a mineral the body uses for urinary tract function and regularity.* Therefore, sulfur acts as an antioxidant, assisting the body’s own detoxification process to allow water and nutrients to flow freely into cells and waste products or toxins to flow out.

Convinced? You may way want to consider incorporating Eniva Health Minerals for Life Sulfur Liquid Concentrate to your diet! Visit http://eniva.com/sulfur-mineral-liquid-concentrate-32-oz/ for more information!

Maintain Your Vision

Your eyes are a critical part of your health. Maintaining your vision and keeping your eyes healthy will preserve your long-term eyesight. There are many simple tips that you can do on your own to keep your eyes healthy.

Eye_0421.25958910 copy

If you haven’t done so recently, go in for a comprehensive dilated eye exam. You may believe that your eyesight is fine, but a visit to your eye doctor will share results that you may not be aware of. Common eye issues can be identified in their early stages. Additionally, know your family’s eye health history. You may be at risk for genetic eye complications before they actually appear.

What You Can Do To Improve Your Eyesight

Beyond an exam, there are small daily, lifestyle activities you can do to keep your eyes healthy. You’ve been told since you were young to eat carrots to nourish your eyes. However, there are many more super foods that have equally beneficial effects on your eyes. Having a fruit and vegetable rich diet, heavy in dark leafy greens like spinach, kale, or collard greens, along with fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, tuna, or halibut, have been shown to support eye health. Secondly, maintain a healthy weight as this prevents your risk for diabetes, which can lead to effects like vision loss. Additionally, smoking has detrimental effects on your eyes, as it does for the rest of your body. It has been clinically proven that smoking is positively related with development of age-related macular degeneration, cataract, and optic nerve damage.

Lastly, keep your eyes safe by wearing protective eyewear when playing sports or doing dangerous activities that may put your eyes at risk. In the sun, wear sunglasses as they protect your eyes from ultraviolet rays. Lastly, treat your eyes well. If you wear contacts, make sure you’re cleaning your lenses and your hands properly before putting them back in your eyes. Additionally, if you look at a screen for longer periods of time during the day, give your eyes a rest every 20 minutes to reduce the strain on your eyes.

prod_eye_health_17009__12179.1429887088.1280.1280.jpgEnivaHealth offers a specialized formula called Eniva Eye Health+ Liquid Concentrate uniquely formulated to support eye health and aid macular health.* A blend of lutein, zeaxanthin, Vitamin A (as beta-carotene), Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc, Selenium & Grape Seed Extract, and Copper, Eniva Eye Health+ provides liquid vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants for healthy eyes.* This exclusive product is formulated to mimic the ratio of nutrients found in the human eye.
