6 Essential Fats & Oils Your Client Needs In Their Diets

Healthy fats and oils are an important part of every diet. While some fats and oils work against us by increasing our cholesterol, some help prevent the buildup of artery-clogging cholesterol and can even help promote heart health. Of course, it’s important to teach your clients about the differences between healthy and unhealthy oils, and how to portion them out. Fats and oils can be high in calories, so portion control is critical. Here are our favorite oils and fats to educate your clients about: Avocados Avocados are among the healthiest fruits. Their abundance of monounsaturated fats can help reduce bad cholesterol, while promoting good cholesterol levels. They have more protein than any other fruit, and their folate content is great for expectant mothers. Additionally, avocados contain high vitamin E quantities, they can help prevent damage from free radicals, act as an anti-aging nutrient for skin, and boosts immunity. Walnuts Walnuts are not only tasty; they’re nutritious! Walnuts may boost the speed at which you process information, improve your memory, and increase your concentration. One ounce of walnuts each day provides more than 100 percent of the RDA of alpha-Linolenic acid (ALA), an essential omega-3 fatty acid. Almonds Almonds are […] 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? 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

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

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

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
