How L-OptiZinc® Benefits Your Skin

Millions of people suffer from acne. It affects teenagers, moms, and a swath of other people who contend with hormonal imbalance late in life. Acne is one of the most common reasons people don’t like their reflection. Many people struggle with clearing their skin of acne and are looking for a simple, natural solution. Fortunately, there is an alternative. And, as an esthetician, someone who beautifies people, you have the unique ability to present your clients with it. It’s called L-OptiZinc®. What Is L-OptiZinc? L-OptiZinc® is a unique formula when it comes to Zinc. It’s Zinc paired with amino the acid L-methionine. By pairing Zinc with amino acid L-Methionine, people who take the mineral can see better results due to an improved absorption rate. Everyday items, such as legumes, soy, and seeds, impair a person’s ability to absorb Zinc because these items contain phytic acids that counter absorption. Luckily, L-OptiZinc® can help your clients take full advantage of the health benefits found in Zinc. The Benefits of L-OptiZinc® When it comes to Zinc, there are few minerals and supplements that give the same results for skin care. The benefits of taking include the reduction of acne and an improved immune […] Read More

Understanding How Plant Based Ingredients can Increase Your Sales

When selling dietary supplements, it is imperative to understand as a retailer of such products what does and does not sell well. Most importantly, it is pertinent to ensure all products you are selling have been backed by clinical studies. At InterHealth, we specialize in plant-based ingredients and have worked with many vendors who state their plant-based beverages help drive their sales. Let’s take a quick look at why plant based supplements for your beverage products can increase your sales revenue. Not all supplements are the same When consumers buy products, many of them are well aware of the difference between those made with synthetic ingredients and those made with plant based supplements. And while many synthetic supplements may sound appealing, consumers and scientists alike know plant-based (natural) supplements are healthier and help deliver the nutrients they are looking for. This alone is one of the main reasons beverage products made with plant-based supplements tend to sell better. Natural absorption Consumers want to consume beverage products that will provide maximum absorption, and they can achieve this goal with beverage products that have been manufactured using plant based ingredients and supplements. When plant-based beverages are consumed, the consumer is gaining the […] Read More

Promote Healthy Muscle Gain With ZMA®

Testosterone is what makes men, men, while estrogen makes women, women, right? Well, not exactly – it’s a bit more complicated than that. Men and women actually produce both hormones, just in different amounts. Testosterone, in particular, has been singled out as the hormone that affects muscle mass – that at least is accurate for men. Testosterone in men is responsible for the sexual characteristics we associate with males: increased height and muscle mass, thicker facial hair, and a deeper voice, to name a few. Women with high testosterone levels can also develop these characteristics, but most women have much lower testosterone levels compared to men. However, women do need small amounts of testosterone to be healthy and maintain strong bones. It’s rare for women to need testosterone supplementation, but in men, testosterone gradually declines with age. Testosterone affects muscle growth and fat loss. When given anabolic steroids, healthy young men develop increased testosterone levels that can increase muscle mass and help them lose fat. Those steroids come with a high price in terms of side effects, however. Supporting natural testosterone levels may help promote overall well-being, increase libido and cognitive function and help men burn fat. No matter what […] Read More

Providing An Overall Health Change For Clients

When you’re working with a client who is struggling to lose weight, one of the most important messages you must communicate is how emotions affect their eating habits. Stress and anxiety often lead to mindless eating, which can quickly derail weight loss efforts. Mindless eating often focuses on comfort foods high in added fats, sugars and refined carbohydrates. Stress affects hormonal balance. One of the important hormones in this picture is ghrelin. Known as the hunger hormone, ghrelin has the important task of stimulating appetite. Stress increases the levels of ghrelin, making people think they’re hungry even when they aren’t. Chronic stress also affects cortisol, another hormone involved in the “fight or flight” response, and insulin, the hormone that controls blood sugar. Elevated cortisol and insulin levels can also increase appetite. In addition to increasing appetite, the changes in the hormones tend to drive people toward comfort foods, particularly carbohydrates. Many high-carb foods – think bread, pasta, chips and other processed food snacks – are also loaded with extra fat, sugar and salt. The carbohydrates, fat and sugar in the snacks have a feedback effect on the brain that helps decrease stress and anxiety. Research indicates that women seem to […] Read More

Maintain Clients Energy With Zychrome®

Energy makes the world go ’round. In the personal sense, having enough energy is what gets people through the day so they can meet their job and personal commitments. One of the important factors in the energy equation is insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. When you’re working with a weight loss client who has low energy, it’s important to educate them about insulin. The cells in the body all run on glucose, which the body obtains from the food you eat. Carbohydrates break down into glucose and are used to fuel every body process. Insulin is, directly and indirectly, involved in the process of digestion, storage, and energy distribution. Without insulin, muscles, fat cells, and the liver cannot absorb or use glucose properly, resulting in high blood sugar. If blood sugar levels remain high over a period, the cells also become less sensitive to insulin, leading to diabetes. When people eat food, the pancreas releases insulin directly into the bloodstream. The increased insulin levels send a chemical message to cells, essentially telling them to open up and absorb nutrients. As nutrients are absorbed from the bloodstream, the level of insulin gradually drops until it reaches a steady […] Read More

Help Clients Make Healthy Choices While At Home

Helping your client reach their fitness and health goals are simple when they are right there with you in the gym. You can keep them motivated and focused on the reasons why they came to see you that day. But what about when they are away from the gym, at home, and fighting the urges to eat foods that will push their goals away? Here are a few snacks you can tell them to add to their grocery list that will help them when they get a craving and help boost their mood. Chocolate Chocolate makes you happy, right? Of course, it does, and there is even some scientific evidence to back this theory. Eating about 1.4 ounces of dark chocolate every day for 14 days can reduce the amount of stress in your life by decreasing your stress hormones. When your clients add dark chocolate to their grocery lists, this gives them a simple and enjoyable way to boost their mood and decrease stress and tension. Brazilian Nuts Brazil nuts are known for being one of the best sources of selenium, which is a mineral that helps regulate anxiety, depression, tiredness, and irritability.

National Sleep Awareness Week

National Sleep Awareness Week is almost here. Take time during this week to educate your clients on the benefits of deep, restful sleep. Getting enough sleep at night is extremely important for feeling rested in the morning and having enough energy to get through your day. While specific activities influence the amount of sleep you need, there are several aspects of sleep apply to everyone. Let’s take a look at the importance of restful sleep, REM, and napping (yes adults should nap too)! Benefits of Restful Sleep While you are sleeping your mind is still running a million miles an hour. In fact, through a process called consolidation, you are strengthening the memories that you acquired while you were awake; this means restful sleep will improve your overall memory functions. Not only does restful sleep help strengthen your memory it also reduces inflammation, providing overall health benefits and prevention. Benefits of REM: Rapid Eye Movement National Sleep Awareness Week focuses on the importance of REM sleep, otherwise known as rapid eye movement. It is during REM sleep that these movements occur. Your body will enter REM sleep about 90 minutes after you have fallen asleep. REM sleep is not constant […] Read More

Supplement Ingredients and Why They Matter

When you’re advising to a client or customer about supplements, it’s important to consider several factors. First, the supplement should be safe. Second, it should be backed by research. Third, it should work. However, there’s a fourth factor. In nearly all cases, supplements contain other substances – you should know about those ingredients, both to explain them to customers and clients, and also to prevent any side effects or other issues. Active vs. Inert Supplement ingredients can be either active (meaning they have some sort of effect on the body) or inert (meaning they should not have any effect on the body). Active ingredients include the specific substance, such as a plant extract, that makes the supplement do whatever it is supposed to do. In addition, active ingredients may be added to boost the effect of the primary ingredient. Many supplements contain multiple active ingredients and you should know about each one. Inert ingredients are usually considered harmless, but that isn’t always the case. For example, ingredients may cause problems if the consumer/client wants to avoid sugar, artificial sweeteners, or preservatives. People who are vegan for ethical reasons may want their supplements to contain gelatin that is not derived from […] Read More
