Are You Living in a Toxic Home?

Last year the most common poison exposures for children were ingestion of household products, such as cleaning substances. Chlorine is the number one cause of child poisonings in the US. 150 chemicals found in the home are associated with alleriges, birth defects, cancer and psychological disorders. Women often work closely with potentially toxic chemicals, and preliminary reserach suggests taht thir phyiology is more conductive to absorbing and carrying these chemicals. Research estimates the health care cost of US women’s environmentally associated diseases is $12.2 billion annually.Whether you have children or not, you need to be aware of the potential problems that can be caused by toxic cleaners. We need to care for the environment for ourselves, our children and future generations.

                      Tips for Losing Weight

Here are a few tips for healthy weight loss. You want to be sure that any weight loss program you follow has all of these ingredients for the best weight loss results and for the best health.1. A weight loss program should not have you reduce your calories too much. For example, a woman of average height should not eat less than 1200 calories per day. What if you eat 1200 calories per day and you are having trouble losing weight? In that case, rather than lowering your calories, you should consider boosting your metabolism with a safe product

2. On a weight loss program that is correctly balanced you should not be hungry all the time. If you are hungry while dieting you may need to increase your protein, improve the nutritional content of your food, drink more water, or increase your activity. You can increase your protein while keeping your calories reduced by the simple addition of a protein meal replacement shake such as the Our Delicious Shakes

3. You should not feel weak or faint while dieting. If you do feel weak or faint, then you may either have blood sugar problems, or be eating too few calories. (See number 1.) Blood sugar may be helped by nutritional supplements such as Glucose Regulator

4. Your weight loss program should not have you cut back too drastically on fat. Cutting fat out of your diet can be dangerous. We all want to watch out for bad fats, but did you know that there are good fats and in fact our brain can’t function properly without them? Too little good fat in your diet can cause anxiety, depression and many more symptoms. A good source of healthy fats are nuts, fish and of course the easiest way is to take a quality supplement such as Pure Omega Fatty Acids: Fish Oil

The reason that just cutting down on your food doesn’t work is because even if you do lose some weight, you are mostly losing muscle mass along with some fat. Then, as you go back to eating again, you will gain more fat, but you won’t get all of your muscle mass back. So after a few times of dieting, your muscle mass is seriously low. Muscles BURN FAT! So you want to keep your muscles.If you are in doubt about whether you are following a healthy diet plan, go by how you feel. You should feel good, energized and ready to face your day when you wake up. If you are dragging around by 2 then you might need some help. For a great weight loss plan, try our Weigh Loss Plan, and say good-by to the inches with the help of a Shaklee Distributor and full trained expert support:

When you try to lose weight, what do you do? The first thing most people do is cut calories. Did you know that when you cut calories too low your body lowers your metabolism so that you can keep all your body fat? It’s a way that we would survive a famine, which is great, except most of us are trying to lose body fat, not hang on to it. Restricting calories can also cause blood sugar problems, low energy, hunger and cravings for unhealthy snacks.

February is National Heart Month

Did you know that February is National Heart Month? Every year since its congressional approval in 1963, the President has issued a proclamation to this effect, to help raise public awareness of heart disease. According to the Center for Disease Control and the American Heart Association (AHA), heart disease – specifically coronary artery disease – is still the number one case of deaths of men and women in the United States. Even though most people associated with heart disease are men, it is also the leading cause of death among women. Nonetheless, counter to popular opinion, heart attacks kill even more women then men. Sill, unfortunately, at least 100 million Americans have one or more risk factors for heart disease. Every 33 seconds, an American dies of heart disease. That’s nearly a million of us a year. Heart disease is more likely to kill you then cancer, respiratory disease, or car accidents.

Coenzyme Q10

Cardiovascular health can be compromised by diet, genetics, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and an array of other factors. Moreover, our bodies are often deficient in substances critical to healthy heart function. One example is coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which helps produce energy in each cell, particularly those in the heart and other major organs. Since it has powerful antioxidant properties, it helps prevent LDL cholesterol oxidations.

Although the human body can synthesize CoQ10, in some situations the body’s capacity to produce CoQ10 is not sufficient to meet its needs. CoQ10 levels reach their peak in the human body by age 20 and fall slowly thereafter. In fact, 60% of the population has CoQ10 deficiency in their 50s and 60s. In addition, certain medication can reduce the body’s production of CoQ10. Supplements can help, but since most supplements of CoQ10 is poorly absorbed by the body, a supplement must be highly bioavailable to be effective.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Over 4,500 research studies on omega-3 fatty acids effects on overall health have been conducted in the last 25 years. Supportive, but not conclusive, research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Some research shows that high levels of omega-3 fatty acids promote cardiovascular health and help retain normal blood pressures and triglyceride levels (Spiller, Jensen, & Scala, 1987). Other studies show that omega-3 fatty acids help reduce the risk of heart disease (Calder, 2004), help retain healthy triglyceride levels (Harris, 1999), help retain normal blood pressure (Geleijnse, et al., 2002), and even supports brain; (Yong, & Conquer, 2005) visual (SanGiovanni, & Chew, 2005); and joint functions (Curtis, et. al., 2004).

However, while the American Heart Association recommends that we eat two servings of fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids every week, most people only eat fish three times per month. Moreover, there are growing concerns about unsafe levels of contaminants like mercury and lead that are now commonly found in fish.

Elevated Cholesterol

To take a proactive approach to your own heart health, it is important to retain normal cholesterol levels. The National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association say that half of all Americans adults may have elevated cholesterol (200mg/dl or higher; NHLBI, 2001). Elevated blood cholesterol doubles the risk of heart disease. The best way to maintain heart health is to take a proactive approach by eating a health-healthy diet, exercising on a regular basis, and retaining normal cholesterol levels.

Here are some proven tips you can do to help your heart:

· Limit your intake of fat.

· Choose heart-healthy fats over saturated fats and trans fats.

· Limit your intake of sugars – including, eliminating sodas and moderating your “natural fruit juices” – since they are high in sugars, calories, and simple carbohydrates; eat the whole fruit instead. (Long, L. C., Jensen, and Whittam, 1990).

· Limit your intake of sodium/salt

· Choose more whole grains, legumes, fresh produce, and low fat dairy products.

· Choose lean meat and poultry

· Include fish in your diet (A few studies show Salmon has lower toxic levels of contaminants)

· Exercise portion control – smaller meals

· Become physically active for 30 to 60 minutes a day

· Stop smoking

· Limit your intake of alcohol

Furthermore, support the health of your body’s hardest-working muscle with reputable supplements.
