Educating Your Clients on Body Mass Index

For most individuals, getting healthy revolves around the idea of weight loss or weight management. Two-thirds of American adults are overweight, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. When you are counseling a client on weight or the use of weight loss aids, it’s important for the client to understand the issue of body mass index (BMI). The Calculations BMI is a complicated combination of numbers for most to understand. It is a calculation of a person’s weight (in kilograms) divided by the square of his or her height (in meters). Health care professionals like to use the BMI instead of other measurements of body fat as it is a simple way to assess body fat. Methods like bioelectrical impedance and underwater weighing are more precise, but BMI is a more common method to develop a general understanding of your health. The Numbers The numbers are where most clients will get caught up. How can the trust the number if it varies? The BMI is not a direct measure of body fat and can read incorrectly in the case of people who are very muscular. Muscle weighs more than fat, so someone who is very […] Read More

Advantages of Heart Health in Older Patients

Older patients have specific health needs, but one of the most important is heart health. Many of the issues and health conditions that cause problems for the older adult can be traced back to heart health, including high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. When counseling older adults, it’s important to cover all the things they can do to maintain and improve heart health. Activity is one of the major keys to having a healthy body and a healthy heart. Regular aerobic exercise promotes circulation and makes the heart stronger. Exercise can also help older adults maintain flexibility, balance, and muscle strength. An exercise program should include 30 minutes of aerobic activity 3-5 times a week, strength training of major muscle groups twice a week and balance and flexibility exercises on a daily basis. The heart is a pump, and there are several ways to help keep it healthy. One of the most important is to avoid tobacco in any form. Another is to manage blood pressure. High blood pressure can damage the heart and cause several heart issues down the road. Weight loss and regular physical activity, stress reduction and a healthy diet can all help keep blood pressure […] Read More

Help Your Clients Gain Control of Their Metabolism

It can be difficult to understand exactly what is happening with your own, or a client’s, metabolism when trying to lose weight through diet and exercise. Often, metabolism is to blame for people gaining weight, or for not being able to lose weight as quickly as a person would like. The truth of the matter is that metabolism is a very complicated process that occurs in the body that can be difficult to hone in on. Luckily, with supplements such as 7-Keto®, there is now a way to maintain and modulate your own and your client’s metabolism to help increase weight loss. Metabolism summarized is the way that your body can convert food into energy. Sometimes, though, when a metabolism is slow, food is not converted as efficiently as it should be and the food is then turned to fat rather than burned off as energy. There are many factors that can contribute to what level a person’s metabolism is at. Such factors can include age, diet, prior health, and activity level. Even a person’s gender can affect how efficiently the body can transform food and drink into energy. It has been proven that typically males have a higher metabolic […] Read More

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?

By pairing Zinc with amino acid L-Methionine, people who take the mineral can see better results due to an improved absorption rate.

The Benefits of L-OptiZinc® When it comes to Zinc, there are few minerals and supplements that give the same results for skin care.

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
