National Take Your Daughters & Sons to Work Day – April 22nd, 2010

April 22, 2010

American Nutrition honored National Take Your Daughters & Sons to Work Day! by having Anjelica, (Our Webmaster’s Daughter) help out today.

She learned all about manufacturing capsules and why we have a clean room to make the products in. Anjelica helped stock the shelves and watched the labeling machine in action. She learned about office politics and how to be respectful in the workplace. Hopefully, her knowledge of applied work ethic will boost her self confidence when she goes out in to the world to work at her first job.

Anjelica will be reporting her activities in an essay she will be writing for her 5th grade class. She took detailed notes and asked A LOT of questions. All in all she had a very productive day here at American Nutrition.

Thank you, Anjelica, for visiting our warehouse! It was a joy having you around the office with your cheerful smile and willingness to learn.

Improve Fitness and Health with a Nutritious Weight Loss Diet

April 8, 2010

You should begin your diet with a Natural Cleanse, this will help reduce toxins and excess food build up in your body. Cleaning out your digestive system and making way for vitamins and nutrients will set you on the right path for healthy effective weight loss.

If you want to lose weight you will have to eat less foods that are high in saturated fat and sugar. You can choose vegetables or fruits as a healthy alternative to sugar filled snacks. That will make it easier to control your appetite and calorie intake.

Exchanging old habits for a new eating routine can be difficult while on a Weight loss diet. When cutting out certain fats in your diet, you must be careful not to allow vital nutrients to slip through the cracks. Cutting back doesn’t mean taking out nutritional foods in your diet.

Avoid saturated fat as often as you can, try to switch to a balance of poly and monounsaturated fats instead. Fat helps with the absorption of fat-soluble vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, and vitamin K. It helps boost energy levels, and the essential fatty acids in fat are vital for many important body functions. Reach for foods rich in proteins and omega-3 essential polyunsaturated fats. Great dietary sources of protein and omega-3 include flaxseed, flaxseed oil, walnuts, fish including salmon, mackerel, and tuna.

Curb hunger between meals with snacks that are high in fiber. High-fiber foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains, satisfy your hunger and help slow digestion between meals. When food moves slowly through the digestive system, blood-sugar levels remain on an even keel and leave you feeling full.

You may start to experience low energy levels due to your lower calorie intake. Keep your body full of B vitamins, these assist in bodily functions such as energy production and help to regulate or speed up your metabolism. B vitamins also assist in maintaining healthy balanced thyroid and adrenal functions.

Below is a list of some foods that are rich in Vitamin B. Adding these to your diet will help you to feel energized and motivated to exercise while you are dieting, which in turn will help you shed pounds faster.

Whole grains
Beans
Eggs
Yogurt
Green leafy vegetables
Almonds
Avocados
Poultry
Broccoli
Brewer’s Yeast
Organ meats (such as liver), nuts, and fish.

These Supplements can also Help you Stay Healthy while Losing Weight:

Calcium helps to prevent fat storage and increases food metabolism rate. Recent studies have linked calcium intake to weight loss, and a significant rate of pounds shed in people whose diets are calcium deficient. Even if you are not deficient in calcium, it is a critical nutrient, especially for women. Calcium is vital to the formation and growth of the bones and teeth and helps to prevent osteoporosis, among its other roles. Get your calcium from green leafy vegetables, tofu, salmon, and dairy products.

Other minerals also such as the trace mineral Chromium, assist in stabilizing blood-sugar levels and is found in brewer’s yeast, egg yolks, beef, hard cheeses, liver, and whole-grain breads.

Zinc supports protein synthesis and is essential to the formation of insulin. Zinc sources include Brazil nuts, shellfish, eggs, and lean meats. Manganese helps regulate cholesterol metabolism and blood glucose and is found in wheat germ, spinach, split peas, nuts, and oatmeal.

Keep Your Heart Healthy with Fish Oil & Omega-3 Fatty Acids

October 14, 2009

The American Heart Association Recommends Omega-3 fatty acids an fish oil supplements. Omega 3 contains Fish oil which can benefit the heart of healthy people, and those at high risk of  or already have  cardiovascular disease.

You should be eating fish (particularly fatty fish) at least two times a week
Fish is a great source of protein and doesn’t have the high saturated fat that meat products do.  Fatty fish like mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines, albacore tuna and salmon are high in two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

Dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids include fish oil and certain plant and nut oils. Fish oil contains both docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), while some nuts (English walnuts) and vegetable oils (canola, soybean, flaxseed/linseed, olive) contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).

There is evidence from multiple studies supporting intake of recommended amounts of DHA and EPA in the form of dietary fish or fish oil supplements lowers triglycerides, reduces the risk of death, heart attack, dangerous abnormal heart rhythms, and strokes in people with known cardiovascular disease. It also slows the buildup of atherosclerotic plaques (“hardening of the arteries”), and lowers blood pressure slightly.

*Some species of fish carry a higher risk of environmental contamination, such as with methyl mercury. So make sure the source of your supplementation is a trusted one like American Nutrition.

American Nutrition Fish Oil is guaranteed to comply with strict European standards for heavy metals, PCBs, dioxins, pesticides and other unwanted compounds.

People with the Highest Levels of GLUTATHIONE are Living Past the Age of 100

October 9, 2009

Cutting-edge research is revealing the power of a “master antioxidant” – a tripeptide molecule called glutathione (GLUTATHIONE (GSH)).

People with the highest levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) are the ones who routinely live past 100. Plus, it may prevent a host of chronic diseases like arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer and diabetes – just to name a few.
Best of all, boosting your levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) is easy. Below is an effective strategy that may add decades to your life. These include the best ways to get the most powerful forms of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) and how much to take.

When scientists at the University of Louisville gave mosquitoes a GLUTATHIONE (GSH) booster, their levels went up by 50 to 100 percent. And, their life spans increased by a remarkable 30 to 38 percent. Doctors at the Montreal General Hospital Research Institute in Canada then repeated the experiment with mice. They were able to duplicate the results – boosting levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) and increasing life spans.

Their success prompted others to investigate the effects of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) in humans. Odense University in Denmark compared levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) in centenarians (age 100 to 105) and people age 60 to 79 and found that GLUTATHIONE (GSH) was higher in the centenarians. Among the centenarian group, those who were the most active had the very highest levels.

In the same way that high levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) increase life spans, low levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) show a direct link to chronic degenerative diseases.

Here’s just a partial list:

  • Heart Disease
  • Cataracts
  • Arthritis
  • Renal Failure
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Leukemia
  • Diabetes
  • Hearing Loss
  • Cancer
  • Obstructive Lung Disease (COPD)
  • Macular Degeneration

High levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) are associated with fewer illnesses. A University of Michigan study found that those with higher GLUTATHIONE (GSH) levels reported a greater sense of well being along with lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and reduced body fat.

The most natural way to get more GLUTATHIONE (GSH) is eating foods high in glutathione. These include horseradish, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale and Brussels sprouts.

These nutritional supplements will also boost your GLUTATHIONE (GSH):

There are also two reliable GLUTATHIONE (GSH) precursors – substances that stimulate the production of GLUTATHIONE (GSH). These are whey protein, commonly found in protein powders and N-acetyl cysteine (in a dose of 1,800 mg to 2,400 mg a day) – both are available at American Nutrition and/or local health food stores.

Finally, you can take GLUTATHIONE (GSH) supplements (1 to 2 grams per day). The latest reports show that up to 80 percent of most GLUTATHIONE (GSH) supplements are absorbed and used by your body.
