Ultimate Maca Energy 

Ultimate Maca Energy is made with 100% pure, traditionally sundried, natural and certified organic maca root grown exclusively in the Andean highland zones of Peru at altitudes of 14,000 ft. Ultimate Maca Energy maca root has many health benefits and scientifically tested properties. In addition to being a source of vitamins, minerals, protein, amino acids and complex carbohydrates, Ultimate Maca Energy also contains an impressive array of bioactive components and antioxidants, which are responsible for its numerous benefits.

The Various Benefits of Maca

Maca is a well-known and powerful adaptogen, which means that it is a substance that helps to increase the body’s natural resistance to environmental stresses. Recent human clinical studies have provided convincing scientific evidence supporting supplementation for healthy mood balance during menopause.

How Maca Works

Maca is loaded with vital nutrients in bioavailable forms which assist the body in its on-going process of regeneration, ultimately helping to replenish and recuperate from different problems and providing ultimate balance and wellbeing. Its actions focus mainly on the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, assisting the body in balancing hormones. This is where the main benefits associated with maca can be noted (e.g. mood balance).

University Certified

Ultimate Maca Energy is certified by the Natural Agricultural U
niversity of La Molina in Peru and also by Skal. The National Agricultural University of La Molina in Peru is an independent entity funded by the government of Peru that oversees all the agricultural and related activities in different areas of the country.

What to expect when you’re NOT expecting

Menopause:

BANNER-its-getting-hot-300x250everyone knows what it is but no one really knows what it is.  At its most basic, it’s the point in a woman’s life when her monthly periods stop and she is no longer fertile. Although the term dates back to the 17th century, it was a little studied phenomenon until quite recently, largely because many women died before they reached it.

What we do know is that it is an inevitable rite of passage for all women, a natural process indicating a change  in life stage, not a disease that needs to be eradicated. But that doesn’t mean that the unpleasant symptoms that mark the transition are just something you have to suffer through.

It’s getting hot in here

By far the most common complaints are hot flashes and night sweats. Although the exact cause is not completely understood, doctors believe that both are caused by hormonal changes altering the way in which the body perceives heat. But if you’re experiencing one or both of these symptoms (like 80% of women), you’ll be less interested in how they start and more interested in how they can be stopped.

Only a small minority of women will experience symptoms severe enough to require medical intervention. For others sage like that found in A.Vogel’s once-a-day Menopause, is effective at reducing both the frequency and the severity of hot flashes and night sweats. Sage is rich in elements that have anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties, which could explain the plant’s unique efficacy in combating the most unpleasant side effects of menopause.

Put some polish on your golden years

Of course, as irritating as hot flashes and night sweats can be, they’re far from the only concern that women have as they age. (Although you’d think that would be enough!) There can also be changes in a woman’s energy level, moods and greater susceptibility to conditions like osteoporosis.

The rules of being healthy don’t change as a woman enters menopause, but they do become a little stricter. It’s more important than ever to eat a balanced diet and keep physically active whenever possible, as well as to get adequate, restful sleep. That’s easy enough to say, but it can be difficult when you’re trying to balance work and family obligations and your hormones are driving you to distraction. As an “insurance policy” for when you might not be able to do everything you’re supposed to for your health, there are some things that can help where you need it:

  • Calcium is available from dietary sources but if you’re worried that you might not be getting enough, consider taking a supplement. You might also want to consider taking something that helps you absorb the calcium you already get. The mineral is notoriously tricky and even when taken in proper amount the body cannot always assimilate it efficiently. A.Vogel Calcium Absorber is designed to help the body assimilate minerals. It promotes their absorption, their metabolism and their proper usage.
  • Fluctuating hormones can play havoc with your moods and sleep patterns (which in turn causes your moods to become even more unstable), but medications that help relieve fatigue or help you sleep can leave you feeling jittery- followed by a crash- or groggy and the body can too easily become dependent on them. For gentler relief, consider natural alternatives like St. John’s Wort (helps with mild depression and to relieve insomnia related to stress or agitation) or A.Vogel Rhodiola Complex, which gives a more stable energy level without getting you worked up.

Living longer, healthier lives means that more women will have to go through the menopause, but it also means that we can, for the first time in history, look forward to enjoying the period of our lives that comes after our time working or being a full-time mom. Make sure you’re able to get the most from it!

Exciting ChirositolTM Researchglucosmart_small

Over 30 published studies performed at the Virginia Medical School have shown that ChirositolTM, a nutrient derived from carob, is an effective supplement for insulin-resistant conditions including weight gain, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes, as well as for excess androgen (male hormone)-related concerns such as PCOS, acne and male facial hair growth in women.
There is a connection between the loss of our waist and changing hormones. The main hormone involved in the development of belly fat is insulin. Insulin is a powerful hormone that, when in excess, also causes an elevation in male hormones, particularly testosterone. Excess male hormones can cause male facial hair growth, acne and PCOS in women. Elevated insulin and blood sugar further leads to weight gain, high cholesterol, high triglycerides,
diabetes and especially belly fat. An early sign of pre-diabetes is skin tags due to higher-than-normal blood sugar and insulin. ChirositolTM normalizes insulin and blood sugar levels, thereby assisting with all of the above conditions.
ChirositolTM mimics insulin’s activity, controlling blood glucose levels, glucose storage and the action of glucose in the cell. It will not, however, cause low blood sugar in those with normal blood sugar levels. ChirositolTM also elevates our happy hormone, serotonin. Reduced serotonin or poor metabolism of serotonin is linked to increased sugar cravings. By balancing serotonin and blood sugar, ChirositolTM also helps to control appetite.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an insulin-resistant disorder with resulting elevated male hormones. Many fluid-filled cysts may be present in the ovaries, but some women do not have multiple cysts. In this disorder, excess circulating insulin and luteinizing hormone increase the production of male hormones that can cause acne and coarse facial hair growth in women. Oily skin may also be evident. Affecting up to 10 percent of the population, PCOS is the most common hormone dysfunction among women in their reproductive years. Symptoms often become apparent in puberty, when menstruation begins. Irregular menstrual periods with excess bleeding may occur, or PCOS can cause a lack of periods altogether. Because eggs are frequently not released, infertility is a major concern of women with PCOS. If pregnancy does occur, it often ends with first trimester miscarriage or is associated with gestational diabetes. If left untreated, PCOS can lead to cancer of the uterine lining. Women with PCOS also are at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension. PCOS is a very challenging condition to treat and ChirositolTM effectively reduces excess male hormones, reduces weight and appetite, and normalizes ovulation, thereby improving fertility. If you have been battling PCOS, ChirositolTM is the solution.
