Help for Good Digestion

I have been reviewing a lot of diagnostic blood tests lately and seeing a lot of folks out there with digestive issues. Digestion is key to the over all health of your body. There can be many reasons for poor digestion. Two of the most common are imbalance of intestinal bacteria and low stomach acids that aid in digestion.

Some of the symptoms that might present themselves are acid reflux, excessive bloating, gas and belching.

Many people notice as they age that these symptoms tend to increase. The pharmaceutical companies are all over this. If you watch any television or read any magazines you have seen countless ads for Tums, Nexium and many others.

I prefer a more natural less complicated approach. First establish healthy bacteria in the intestinal tract with a probiotic supplement. Probiotics are natural healthy bacteria like lactobacillus that should out number the bad bacteria in your intestines. So many individuals have taken their fair share of antibiotics which destroy this delicate balance. Next consider taking a digestive enzyme that will help in balancing the stomach. I recommend the following products.

Apex Energetics has two products that are specific for digestion; Super Digest-Zyme and HCL-ProZyme. Take one to two of these three times a day with meals. I personally use the Super Digest-Zyme and love it!

Metagenics makes several great probiotics. I like both Ultra Flora Plus DF, LactoFlamX and Proboulardi.

Enjoy the summer and enjoy the eating with these great products!


Live Long and Prosper

Like Spock from Star Trek bestowing the salutation “live long and prosper” I believe long life if lived healthy should be a goal for all of us. Many studies have shown it is not the development of new scientific breakthroughs in wonder drugs that extend our lives. It is the simple truths that work; good diet, good sleep and eliminating the stress in our environment. Toxins that build up in our body are a form of environmental stress. But what can we do to avoid this?¬† How can we eliminate or minimize the¬†toxins that are currently affecting our health?

I have talked about Glutahione on this blog previously and how it relates to other health topics like autism for example. I can’t say enough about this wonderful master anti-oxidant and its many benefits! Some scientists say our longevity is directly related to our Glutathione levels. This master anti-oxidant performs multiple functions to help the body prevent disease by scavenging free radicals and pulling out heavy metals through the urine.

Since Glutathione is only two amino acids it is difficult to ingest it in a supplement form. It is digested too quickly to change blood Glutathione levels. I have found two wonderful sources of Glutathione that work extremely well.

Livewave energetic Glutathione Patch has been show to increase blood Glutathione levels significantly. It is easily placed on the body every other day, activating specific acupuncture meridians. The other product is Apex Energetics, Oxicell. This is a topical trans-dermal cream applied to vascular areas of the skin. It really works great for inflammation, especially in the joints. With these two wonderful products you can live longer and healthier and that makes it much easier to prosper in all areas of you life!

Best of Health,
