Adrenal Fatigue Is Nothing To Ignore - See What You Can Do About It!

Hey, Health Stoppers!

Do you experience relentless fatigue that you just can't shake? Does it feel like you're always tired? Are you reaching for a cup of coffee every fifteen minutes? And despite feeling like you're ready to fall over all day, are you unable to sleep when you finally get the chance? Insomnia, anyone?
You might be experiencing adrenal fatigue.

Adrenal fatigue is one of the most pervasive ailments of the modern age.Continuous exposure to stimulation, be it physical or mental (coffee and Facebook scroll-holes, anyone?), leads to an over-taxing of the adrenal glands, resulting in an overproduction of cortisol, the 'stress hormone', and a decrease in DHEA.
The result of a high cortisol to DHEA level may be :
Reduced insulin sensitivity, reduced glucose utilization, and increased blood sugar, which may lead to diabetes.
Reduced secretory IgA (the main cellular defense factor), natural killer (NK) cell and T-lymphocyte activity which may lead to increased chances of getting infections such as Herpes, yeast overgrowth, and viral infections.
A block in calcium absorption results in an increased loss in bone mass. The demineralization of bone occurs, which may lead to osteoporosis.
Increased fat accumulation around the waist and protein breakdown. This may lead to muscle wasting, an inability to reduce weight.
An increased in water and salt retention, possibly leading to high blood pressure at first, with low blood pressure as the condition worsens.
Estrogen dominance, which may lead to PMS, uterine fibroids, and breast cancer.
As you can see, letting your adrenals get off balance is nothing to scoff at. In fact, they are something that you should pay a lot of attention to!Especially in a world where 'being stressed' is becoming more and more commonplace, we urge you to sit back and smell the roses. And if that's not enough.... take a formula that will nourish your adrenals for you!

DGL - The Overlooked Body Balancer, And A Life Saver For Indigestion!

Hey, Health Stoppers!

dgl
Licorice Root has been used as a remedy for centuries, however it contains a compound known as Glycyrrhizin which produces health complications in individuals with specific health conditions, such as those with blood pressure, liver or kidney issues. However, DGL (Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice Root Extract) has had it's Glycyrrhizin removed, allowing everyone to take Licorice without any risk of complication!
Now, you may be asking, what is Licorice Root good for?
Popularly, Licorice Root is recognized for its beneficial qualities in issues of the digestive system, such as heartburn, indigestion, nausea, stomach pain and and leaky gut! It is a powerful anti-inflammatory, and can help protect against ulcers.
In fact, Licorice Root has been found to work directly on the stomach lining. If you suffer from consistent digestive complicationschew a DGL tablet 20 minutes before a meal to glean it's full benefit. Additionally, DGL may be taken as needed.
However, Licorice Root also has many lesser known benefits, such as the regulation of cortisol. This makes it a powerful anti-stress remedy, and can assist your body in the recovery of its adrenal function, which plagues so many of us today in our fast-paced, coffee guzzling world.
Licorice Root also provides a significant boost to the immune system, and is helpful in treating coughs and sore throats, by loosening up trapped mucous in the respiratory tract.
Licorice contains beneficial phytoestrogens, which offer significant benefit to women who suffer from PMS and menopausal conditions. For shortening hot flashes, licorice root has been found to be more beneficial than hormone replacement therapy.
Licorice's anti-inflammatory benefits have also placed it in the category as a pain-reliever, assisting with abdominal, muscle cramps and joint pain.
LicoriceBenefits
Licorice Root's plethora of benefits makes it a difficult supplement to pass up. We keep DGL on hand at all times because it is so multi-faceted.. and at it's most basic, you never know when you might eat something weird and need relief! :P

Prioritize Self Care in 2019 - Take a Multivitamin!

Hey, Health Stoppers!

onedaily
Looking for an extra boost to help you reach your goals this year?
Try a multivitamin!
We try our hardest to eat healthfully, but sometimes it's hard to meet our nutritional quotas each day. And though one day of falling short isn't a big deal, those days do add up! What is the result? Nutritional deficiencies; and those are no joke. Multivitamins fill in the nutritional gaps where your diet may be lacking. And that means no nutritional deficiency!
Multivitamin use has been found to boost energyslow aging, increase memory, improve mood, reduce risks of disease, and even improve weight loss! Multivitamin use can reduce hunger, as your body stops sending out hunger signals linked to the need for a specific nutrientMore nutrients = Less calories!
benefits-of-multivitamins
With so many benefits, there's really no reason to say "no" to a multivitamin. It's one of the easiest health decisions you could make, and certainly impactful!
Additionally, if we could recommend ONE multivitamin, THE BEST multivitaminwe would recommend Megafood multivitamins. Megafood supplements are food-based, not synthetic; meaning they are more bio-available within your body.
Synthetic vitamins are not as easily assimilated into the body. But not Megafood...Megafood brings increased nutrient absorption... which means more nutrients for you!
Start your 2019 off right with a multivitamin!
One per day to a healthier, happier new year! :)

Vitamin D - You're Probably Deficient, And What It Means For Long Term Health

Hey, Health Stoppers!

Vitamin-D
Vitamin D, the precious 'sunshine vitamin', is not as easy to obtain as its name suggests. Besides the fact that many of us don't spend enough time in the sun to accumulate an adequate level of Vitamin D, living at our specific location in relation to the equator puts us as a huge disadvantage. That's right. Living in New Jersey means you have access to less Vitamin D, overall. Don't let that change your opinion of the beautiful Garden State! But be in the know - your daily walk might not be enough to prevent a Vitamin D deficiency, specifically in these dark winter months!
vitaminddef
The most common symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency include:
Neurological symptoms such as anxiety, depression and schizophrenia
Fatigue, sleep changes
Weak and aching bones and muscles
Impaired immune system; frequent coughs, colds and infections
Pale skin and dark circles under the eyes
Loss of appetite
Excessive sweating
vitaminddef2
long term Vitamin D deficiency can put you at risk for the following ailments:
Impaired neurological function
Circulatory and heart issues
Respiratory issues, such as asthma
Muscle aches and weakness
Rickets and Osteoporosis
Crohn's Disease
Multiple Sclerosis
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Cancer
Influenza
Tuberculosis

Vitamin D Is Nothing To Sneeze At!

Make sure to get your Vitamin D levels tested by your doctor to see where your Vitamin D levels are!
Protect your, and your family's health; take Vitamin D everyday!
