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

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

Antioxidants as Supplement Ingredients

Antioxidants can help promote a variety of metabolic functions in the human body. They are an important aspect of health that should be incorporated into daily healthy habits. Many health product supplements include antioxidants to help make the product more effective. Having a health product that contains ingredients that promote the benefits of antioxidants can have a big impact on being able to sell the product. About Antioxidants Antioxidants can include vitamins such as vitamin C and E, substances found in foods such as beta-carotene, or anthocyanins – molecules that provide the strong colors found in many fruits and vegetables. Many supplements also contain antioxidants. Research does indicate that consuming antioxidants is important for many metabolic processes and that diets high in fruits and vegetables promote overall health. Research Scientists have only recently begun to research the effects of antioxidants. The research effort can be time-consuming, partly because in many cases, looking at the effects of antioxidants in dietary or supplement form requires long-term study with large population. What is clear, however, is that many of the substances known as antioxidants do have significant effects on health. Vitamin C, for example, is important to wound healing and is something humans […] Read More

Steroid-Free Muscle Support Solutions

Muscles power every action in the body and strong muscles in the professional athlete (or even the weekend warrior) make a big difference in performance. Exercise is basic for building muscle strength and power, but sometimes an athlete wants a little extra. Supplements may offer a solution without the risks of steroids. Exercise and Muscles Exercise is how muscles become stronger. Aerobic exercise such as running, cycling or swimming promotes oxygen metabolism and overall fitness, but strength-training targets specific muscle groups or individual muscles. Weight lifting and resistance training with machines are the primary methods athletes use to strengthen their muscles. About Steroids Steroids are hormones that occur naturally in the human body. When taken as supplements, steroids can have a significant impact on an athlete’s ability to build muscles and increase muscle strength and power. However, steroids also have some major health risks. They can cause severe mood swings and anger (what’s known as steroid rage). Steroids also affect the immune system and other body functions and metabolic processes. They can cause serious negative health effects in men and women. Steroids are banned by many professional athletic organizations. Muscle Support with Supplements One option for non-steroidal muscle support is […] Read More

The Benefits of Restful Sleep for Patients

In addition to a healthy diet and exercise, sleep is one of the major cornerstones of health. The National Sleep Foundation notes that many Americans get by on six hours of sleep each night, rather than the seven to eight hours most people actually need. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates about  25 percent of US adults report they occasionally don’t get enough sleep. Promoting healthy sleep is important for anyone in the healthcare field or supporting industries. The Link Between Sleep and Health During the period when humans sleep, the body carries out a wide variety of chemical and biological processes necessary for health. In addition, sleep is absolutely vital for brain health, and the brain controls all other organs, systems, and processes in the body. Sleep and metabolism are linked in many ways and the body’s ability to regulate many hormonal processes depends on getting sufficient sleep. Sleep Strategies A healthy diet with adequate protein is necessary for the body to manufacture the chemical messengers in the brain (neurotransmitters) that promote cognitive function, relaxation, and healthy sleep patterns. Regular exercise helps relieve stress and is another way to promote sleep. People who are having […] Read More
