Does fish oil a day keep the Doctor away?

Renew Life Super Critical Bonus Bottle will be on Sale in May and June 2017

Over 7000 studies on omega-3 fatty acids seem to be telling us YES! Essential Fatty Acids are natural substances your body needs to establish and maintain overall well-being. As the body cannot produce these essential fats on its own, it is very important that they are acquired through a healthy daily diet. However, the typical Canadian diet is severely deficient in these. Daily supplementation with a natural fish oil formula is an ideal source for obtaining the health-promoting benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids.

EFA supplementation can help to maintain good health but also treat certain health conditions such as:

Arthritis and Inflammatory Conditions

The powerful anti-inflammatory properties of Omega-3 oils from fish help reduce stiffness in joints and help relieve joint and muscle pain. This makes fish oils an important supplement for anyone trying to maintain joint health and mobility.

 

Attention Deficit Disorder and Memory

Recent research reveals that Omega-3’s, specifically DHA, help increase focus and memory retention in children and adults. Omega 3 fatty acids also support normal neurological development in infants.

 

Cholesterol and Blood Pressure

Omega-3 oils promote healthy cholesterol levels in the body by helping to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) levels and raise good cholesterol (HDL) levels. Clinical research also reveals reductions in blood pressure with the intake of Omega-3 fatty acids.

 

Depression and Mood Regulation

Regular supplementation of omega 3 fatty acids helps to elevate mood and lessen depression and anxiety. High potency fish oil with added Vitamin D is very useful in treating Seasonal Affective Disorder or the “winter blues”.

 

Digestive System Health

Regular Omega-3 supplementation helps to soothe and lubricate the bowel, ease elimination and supporting overall digestive health.

 

There are a lot of fish oil supplements on the market, but Super Critical Omega provides the highest-quality blend of EPA and DHA and exceeds world standards for fish oil quality and purity. Super Critical Omega is one of the strongest fish oil supplements on the market with over a 1 gram of Omega 3 per capsule PLUS 1000 units of Vitamin D3. It is the perfect choice for people dealing with chronic health conditions including depression and IBS.

 

Ultimate Digestibility with Better Absorption

Ultragest™ enteric coating ensures superior absorption and the fat-digesting enzyme lipase enhances the digestion and utilization of the beneficial oils. This combination eliminates the unpleasant aftertaste and repeating of fishy flavour often experienced with fish oil supplements.

 

100% Fish-derived Gel Caps

Encapsulated in natural fish-derived gel caps, Super Critical Omega is ideal for fish-eating vegetarians or anyone with religious dietary restrictions.

 

Quality & Purity Guaranteed

Super Critical Omega is sourced from sustainable wild and unthreatened fish that are found in cold, pristine waters and are naturally lower in environmental toxins such as: mercury, PCB’s and pesticides.

 

Purity Testing & Certification

Super Critical Omega is subject to a minimum of three purification steps to ensure the highest levels of freshness and the absence of any chemicals, toxins and heavy metals. It has received a 5-star rating by the International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS) program. This proves that it meets or exceeds all national and international standards for purity, potency and freshness.

 

With all of these benefits it is no surprise that fish oils are one of the most commonly researched and consumed natural health products in the world. Have you taken yours today?

FEATURED PRODUCT: Marseille’s Remedy Thieves’ Oil & Balm: Ancient Remedy for Modern Times

marseilles-remedy-product-photo-6The Folklore

In 1413, as the bubonic plague decimated France, thieves were arrested for robbing dead and dying plague victims, a crime punishable by burning alive.  The judge offered them leniency for their terrible crimes if they would share the secret which enabled them to expose themselves to the plague without contracting it.  The thieves explained that they were perfume makers and spice merchants who were unemployed due to the closure of France’s sea ports.  They had prepared a special herbal infusion which they applied to their hands, ears, feet, masks, and temples and this protected them from infection.  As promised, the judge did not burn the men alive…He hanged them instead.  Soon after, plague doctors began to wear beak-like masks stuffed with absorbent material soaked in the Thieves’ blend to protect them from disease.

The Thieves’ original blend, containing vinegar and garlic, was known primarily as Vinaigre de Marseille. This formula was marketed by medical suppliers as the first line of defence for hundreds of years, and has been a staple of pestilent prevention in every plague since its formulation. The rise of the modern pharmacopeia saw this staple placed in the pages of forgotten history. Marseille’s Remedy is the most traditional concentrated form of this time- honoured recipe. Its applications are numerous, as a treatment for all of life’s hygienic needs.

A Powerful, Versatile Remedy

Marseille’s Remedy is an all-natural blend of five pure, high-grade, therapeutic essential oils used to improve wellness, health, and vitality. It consists of the organic, steam-distilled oils of Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus and Rosemary, plus the true cold-pressed oil of Lemon. These are sourced from Sri Lanka (the first two), Australia, France and Italy, respectively. This authentic blend naturally balances, safeguards, and synergizes (or strengthens) the healing properties of various essential oil constituents.

It can be mixed with any carrier oil for topical use, vinegar or soap for cleaning, baking soda for teeth, or used directly in a diffuser to purify air.

Its applications and usages are many, and when applied correctly, Marseille’s Remedy is a very effective antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral treatment.

We have received many happy testimonials from customers, including in successfully treating acne, boils, warts, cold sores, and colds/coughs amongst their families, to refreshing indoor air quality, eliminating their pet’s fleas, or wiping out surface molds, among others.

Suggested Uses:

  • Clears phlegm and congested airways
  • Relieves inflammation due to sprain/strain/rheumatoid arthritis
  • Antispasmodic for symptomatic relief of digestive discomfort
  • Eliminates airborne pathogens and foul odours
  • Antifungal: Feet, hands, scalp, and mold remediation
  • Use as hand sanitizer or all-purpose cleaner
  • Can aid in the treatment and prevention of topical infectious ailments
  • Deters mites, lice, worms, fleas, and mosquitoes

Applications:

  • Topical: Combine 2 drops of Marseilles Remedy with 40 drops of carrier oil, and massage into skin, muscles, or joints.
  • Direct Inhalation: For cough and cold, apply 2 to 6 drops undiluted product to a handkerchief/tissue and inhale. Alternatively, diffuse in boiling water or in an essential oil diffuser.
  • Household: Mix with soapy water, or diluted vinegar, to clean, and sanitize. Use undiluted to remediate mold around the house, or deter pests.

 

Thieves’ Balm:

The Balm is like having a popular muscle rub product combined with the favorite leading chest rub, merged into one effective and all-natural ointment. It contains over 50% of the Marseille’s Thieves’ Oil blend, plus some grapeseed oil and beeswax for pleasant texture, plus a warming natural camphor, and a soothing, deeply penetrating natural menthol (peppermint oil compound).

The balm is effective for many of the aforementioned uses, but also can “stick” longer to the skin, so is better suited for continual topical treatments, such as in respiratory disorders, or for joint or muscle aches or injury areas.

Some parents have reported how quickly it acted as an expectorant to help expel their child’s chest cold, and many clients have had success treating symptoms of back or other body pain. Recurrent daily use can help the body modulate the inflammatory response, and resolve conditions more easily.

Since Marseille’s Remedy is a concentrated, undiluted pure blend, use responsibly. Avoid contact with eyes, membranes, or other sensitive body areas. Read label before using.

 

Have a Cheerful and Healthy Autumn and Winter!

Back pain exercises

No matter how well a workstation is designed, problems may arise if attention is not paid to the way the work is done.

Working at a computer often involves very few changes in body position. This lack of movement can lead to muscle pain and strain.

Why is stretching important?

Hold one foot off the floor with your leg straight. Alternately flex your ankle (point your toes up) and extend (point your toes down). Repeat with the other leg.

Leg Lift

Sit forward on the chair so that your back is not touching the chair’s back. Place feet flat on the floor. With a straight leg, lift one foot a few inches off the floor. Hold momentarily, and return your foot to the floor. Repeat with the other leg.

Standing stretch

When standing, keep knees slightly bent. Place your hands on your lower back and gently push your hands forward while leaning back slightly.
