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?

Novel Nutrient Lowers Cholesterol by 30% in 30 days

By Lorna R. Vanderhaeghe

 

There is no substance as controversial as cholesterol, and no substance about which there is more confusion. The fact is, 900 out of 1,000 people can control their cholesterol levels with dietary changes and nutritional supplements alone. Cholesterol is essential to health, which means that our body has to manufacture it in order to keep us alive. Cholesterol is needed to make many of our hormones, vitamin D and bile acids which aid fat digestion and to keep our cell membranes intact.  For 70 percent of the population, an increase in the consumption of cholesterol-laden foods decreases production within the body by means of a protective, regulating feedback system. The other 20 percent may have to use dietary changes and nutritional supplements to keep cholesterol levels in check. Less than 10 percent of people with high cholesterol will require medication to keep levels in check. This is probably a shock to most people considering that cholesterol lowering statins are the number one prescribed drug in Canada today.  But while some healthy cholesterol is good for us, too much of it may clog your arteries and increase your risk of heart disease and stroke.

 

Cardiovascular disease accounts for the death of more Canadians than any other disease.

32% of all male deaths in Canada in 2002 were due to cardiovascular disease. For women, rates are even higher – 34% of all female deaths were due to cardiovascular disease.

 

What’s Normal Cholesterol?

It is generally accepted that a total cholesterol level above 5.2 mmol/L (200 mg/dL) adds to the risk of heart disease. There are two main types of lipoprotein: called low-density lipoprotein (LDL) often referred to as “bad”cholesterol, and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or “good”cholesterol   LDL carries cholesterol from your liver to your cells and increased levels are associated with atherosclerosis. HDL takes cholesterol away from cells and back to your liver, where it is either broken down or excreted. That is why it is known as good cholesterol. Cholesterol becomes a problem if you have a high level of LDL combined with a low level of HDL. Your LDL should be kept at less than 2.5 mmol/L.

 

High Triglycerides Damage Arteries

Triglycerides also play a role in heart health; in fact, high triglycerides may be a better predictor of heart disease than high cholesterol. Excess triglycerides are highly destructive to artery walls and may promote hardening of the arteries. Normal triglyceride levels range from 140 to 160mg/dl and the ideal level is 140. Most people are not advised there are other options to lower cholesterol and cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins are often prescribed. Statins work by blocking the production of cholesterol, and although effective, have side effects including headache, nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea and muscle pain. They have also been found to deplete the body of co-enzyme Q10 an important heart-protective nutrient. Statin drugs also increase your need for the vitamins A, D, and E, and are implicated in increased risk of cataracts. And those using statins who have muscle pain must report it to their doctor immediately and stop taking statin medications. Lower cholesterol in 30 days. Thankfully nature provides us with Sytrinol, a safe, effective cholesterol and triglyceride lowering nutrient that works in 30 days. It is made up of a blend of powerful antioxidants including polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs) and a range of palm (alpha, delta andgamma) tocotrienols. Studies have revealed that Sytrinol is able to significantly lower total cholesterol, LDL, and triglyceride. Better still, the formula has also been shown to increase HDL levels.

 

Sytrinol lowers LDL and keeps your arteries clear

Polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs), one of the main active ingredients in Sytrinol, are a group of compounds derived from the peels of citrus fruits. The two most common are tangeretin and nobiletin, which are extremely potent bioflavonoids. More than 25 years of documented research provides evidence that these particular bioflavonoids deliver heart health benefits.

Nobiletin and tangeretin help lower levels of LDL by preventing the manufacture of its building blocks: apolipoprotein B and triglycerides. Apolipoprotein B is considered the primary building block, making up almost 90 per cent of LDL cholesterol. Interestingly, triglycerides the main kind of fat in your body are one of the key contributors to the formation of apolipoprotein B.

Sytrinol is also made up of palm tocotrienols, which, like tocopherols, are members of the vitamin E family and are extracted from the fruit of the palm tree. Like vitamin E, palm tocotrienols control anti-inflammatory responses and degrade HMG-CoA reductase a key enzyme in your body used by your liver to produce cholesterol. Besides reducing cholesterol, palm tocotrienols have also been shown to inhibit arterial plaque formation and reduce blood platelet aggregation (clumping).

Palm tocotrienols are also powerful antioxidants, known to possess antioxidant potential far greater than that shown by vitamin E itself. In human studies, it was observed that alpha tocotrienols decreased the oxidation of LDL. This action is important as raised LDL is a risk factor in cardiovascular disease. The antioxidant properties of tocotrienols can minimize the damage caused by these compounds while protecting cell membranes.

 

30%  improvement of LDL:HDL ratio

To date three main studies have been carried out to investigate Sytrinols effects on high cholesterol levels. The first study involved 60 participants with raised cholesterol levels. After taking 300mg of Sytrinol each day for four weeks, the researchers found that the treatment lowered total cholesterol by 25 per cent, the bad LDL cholesterol by 19 percent, and triglycerides by 24 per cent.

In the second, smaller study 10 subjects with elevated cholesterol levels benefited after four weeks of treatment with 300mg of Sytrinol per day. Sytrinol therapy lowered total cholesterol levels by 20 per cent, LDL cholesterol by 22 per cent, apolipoprotein B (a component of LDL) by 21 per cent, and triglycerides by 28 per cent. Participants also had a significant 5 percent increase in Apolipoprotein A1 an important structural protein of the good HDL cholesterol.

Researchers recently completed a third clinical trial, a 12-week placebo-controlled study involving 120 men and women with moderately elevated cholesterol levels. Compared to those in the placebo group, subjects taking Sytrinol had a 30 percent drop in total cholesterol, 27 percent in LDL cholesterol, and 34 per cent in triglycerides. In addition, HDL levels increased by 4 percent, resulting in a significant 29 percent improvement in the LDL:HDL ratio.

The recommended dosage for Sytrinol is 300mg per day. The best news Sytrinol worked independent of diet changes. Toxicity studies have shown that Sytrinol is well tolerated, with no toxic effects following consumption of up to 1 percent of total dietary intake, or the equivalent of a 150-pound person consuming almost 14 grams per day-that’s nearly 50 times the recommended daily dosage of 300mg/day.

Multiple clinical trials have demonstrated that Sytrinol reduced total cholesterol by 30%, LDL cholesterol was reduced by 27%, and triglycerides reduced by 34% when compared to placebo.

By combining a healthy diet with Sytrinol you can achieve optimal results. Follow the diet guidelines in the chart and walk every day. Drink plenty of water and eat lots of fiber. Fiber binds to excess cholesterol and removes it via daily bowel movements. You have now learned the safest, fastest method of lowering cholesterol in 30 days without the side effects of commonly prescribed cholesterol-lowering medications. Adopt the recommendations mentioned in this article and high cholesterol will be a thing of the past.

Eat these foods for lowering cholesterol.

  • Vegetables, especially plenty of salads
  • Fruits
  • Whole grains like oatmeal, flax and chia seeds
  • Herbal teas, vegetable juices (low sodium)
  • Cold-pressed vegetable oils (extra virgin olive oil)
  • Wild fish, free-range/organic skinless, boneless chicken or turkey

 

Avoid These Foods

  • Margarine
  • Cakes, cookies, biscuits, and candy

Omega-3 Can Help Your Child Reach Their Full Potential

Kids Omega3 - wordyDiscover how Children’s Omega-3 can help your child realize their full potential.

Our sugar-free Children’sOmega-3 contains the ideal ratio of 100 mg EPA to 50 mg DHA per softgel, with a subtle burst of natural lemon flavour.  Omega3 fatty acids are crucial for childhood brain development which lays the foundation for learning, behaviour, attention span, mental focus, and mood.

 

Studies have also shown omega-3 fatty acid to be effective for treatment of childhood ADHD. Premium fish-oil supplementation is also a healthy, side effect–free alternative to prescription stimulants (methylphenidate) in the development and maintenance of ongoing mental health from childhood through adolescence.

 

New Roots Herbal’s Children’sOmega-3 is sourced from deep sea–dwelling sardines and anchovies. They’re tested for purity and potency, as well as for freedom from heavy-metal contamination in our industry-leading analytical laboratory.

Omega-3 fatty acids are critical to the optimal development of the nervous system in childhood.  These essential fatty acids fuel vigorous brain function, crucial for learning and behavioural development, nervous system integrity, and providing nourishment for healthy eyes. They also establish and maintain the network of veins and capillaries that lay the foundation for a lifetime of cardiovascular and mental wellbeing.

New Roots Herbal’s Children’sOmega-3 chewable softgels deliver the perfect balance of 100 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 50 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), naturally sweetened with stevia and a subtle burst of natural lemon flavour. Softgels are the ideal form of dosage to preserve the potency and therapeutic benefits of omega-3 fatty acids from oxidation.   EPA is arguably the most important single agent for promoting optimal mental focus, memory, concentration, and mood, in both adults and children. Studies have shown that EPA-rich omega-3  supplements can reduce ADHD traits, and even reverse criteria for the diagnosis of ADHD, in a considerable percentage of children. Collective data from a 2011 systematic review and meta-analysis of 10 trials of 660 children showed a significant difference with omega-3 fatty acid treatment, and higher doses of EPA rather than DHA within the omega-3 fatty acids supplements were significantly associated with increased effectiveness in treating ADHD symptoms.  Based on the strength of this data, a high-EPA fish oil with a minimum 2:1 ratio of EPA:DHA is needed to impact parameters related to mental focus, memory, and concentration. Studies show that a good dose of EPA for children is between 400 and 600 mg per day. A large concentration of omega-3 fatty acids is essential for nerve cell synapses (communication); a deficiency of these critical fatty acids can be a root cause for a host of cognitive disorders.  Premium fish oil supplementation also represents a healthy alternative to prescription stimulants (methylphenidate) for the development and maintenance of ongoing mental health. Our Children’s Omega-3 chewable softgels are a healthy way to lay the foundation of sound cognitive function during the formative years of childhood and adolescence.

FEATURED PRODUCT: Sytrinol – the Food-Based Solution to High Cholesterol

People are looking for an effective solution to their cholesterol problem. Sytrinol can be that solution.  And you only have to take it once a day!Sytrinol 60 V-Caps 175cc

What is Sytrinol?

Sytrinol is a patented ingredient derived from the rind of orange and tangerine and palm fruit extracts. Multiple studies show that Sytrinol’s active compounds (polymethoxylated flavones and palm tocotrienols) make it an effective and natural cholesterol-lowering supplement that not only lowers LDL ‘bad’ cholesterol but also increases HDL ‘good’ cholesterol. The therapeutic ingredients in Sytrinol are also powerful antioxidants that help to control inflammation, inhibit arterial plaque formation, and reduce blood platelet aggregation (clumping).

 

The Role of Cholesterol in Health

There are few substances as controversial as cholesterol. Although cholesterol often gets a bad rap, cholesterol is necessary to manufacture our male and female hormones and it is used to patch and repair  injuries in the body. It is also essential to the synthesis of vitamin D, and the production of bile acids needed for fat digestion.

 

HDL vs LDL Cholesterol

While some cholesterol is good for us, too much of the wrong kind can clog arteries and increase the risk of heart disease and stroke. In simple terms, cholesterol becomes a health concern when there is a high level of the “bad” low-density lipoproteins (LDL) combined with a low level of the “good” high-density lipoproteins (HDL).

 

Sytrinol Research Studies Show Great Results

Three separate studies showed that taking 300 mg of Sytrinol a day for four weeks (less than 30 days) lowered total cholesterol by 25 to 30 per cent. Sytrinol also lowered “bad” LDL cholesterol by 19-22 percent and triglycerides by 24-34 per cent. And not only did Sytrinol lower LDL, it also increased levels of the “good” HDL cholesterol.
