What is a Nutraceutical?

D3 5000 180c 122315

The term nutraceutical (part pharmaceutical and part nutritional substance) was originally coined by Stephen Defelice, MD and initially defined as a food or part of a food that provides medical or health benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease. It is important to note that the term has no regulatory definition. In my experience “nutraceutical” is used to distinguish a higher quality supplement from a lesser one. Safety and quality issues surrounding over the counter (OTC) supplements like herb adulteration, and cheap synthetic ingredients make OTC products potentially damaging. High-quality, professional lines that are offered through integrative healthcare practitioners are seemingly better utilized, more easily absorbed and can potentially provide treatment and or prevention of disease. So keep that in mind when you’re trying to figure out if you’re going to buy your next multi-vitamin from Sam’s Club or CVS. Just because it looks the same doesn’t mean it is the same. Take vitamin D for example, the most important information when looking at this product is the source. Where did it come from? The most popular source is soy. We know that most soy fields are currently grown with genetically altered (GMO) seed and are not organic. So if the source is this pesticide ridden GMO soy field so is the vitamin D supplement you just swallowed. Next up vitamin D from lanolin, sheep’s wool, don’t worry no sheep were harmed in this vitamin D production however lanolin based vitamin D may be dependent how the animal was raised, is less easily absorbed and in addition may trigger an allergic response in people who are allergic to wool. My favorite source for vitamin D is organic olive oil, specifically the product from Xymogen. It fits my requirements, organic, plant based, and fat based so that it absorbs easily. Xymogen is a company that exclusively sells to healthcare practitioners and manufactures exceptionally high quality products.

Xymogen utilizes four unique strategies that other companies, even good ones don’t have. The first is their ePedigree program. The ePedigree is an electronic record that traces the transition of ownership of a pharmaceutical product. It begins with the manufacturer and documents the transactional history of the product until it reaches the person or organization administering or dispensing it. They are the first company to apply ePedigree to nutraceuticals. This only enhances patient safety from counterfeiting of dietary supplements. Why would anyone want to sell counterfeit supplements? Money of course, in 2015 Americans spent 21 billion on vitamins and herbal supplements.

Featured Supplement of the Month - Xymogen ActivNutrients

95f0bea3 b408 4c45 a978 b163c69f96d4
ActivNutrients

A good multivitamin is the foundation of healthy aging and disease prevention however in searching for the one that is right for us we must remember that not all multivitamins are equal. Sometimes taking a multivitamin of lesser quality can hurt more than help. For example look at the label for Centrum Adult multi vitamin; in addition to synthetic food coloring like yellow 6 lake and titanium dioxide they add polyethylene glycol and polyvinyl alcohol. Neither of these chemicals are beneficial to the human body and are not necessary for the vitamin to be complete. When choosing a multivitamin there are few tips to keep in mind: 1. Read the label. Investigate any ingredient that you don't understand. 2. Read the label. If it includes food colorings and sunscreen chemicals.... just say NO! 3. Check to see if the B vitamins are in their natural form or synthetic.For example; B-12 should be methylcobalamin not cyanocobalamin, B6 should be pyridoxal-5-phosphate not pyridoxine HCI. 4. Buy from a reputable company (brand) that does constituent testing and third party assays to prove that the ingredients are pure and that what is on the label is in the bottle.

ActivNutrients meets and exceeds all of these tips. So what are you waiting for?

How Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Can Enhance Sexual Desire

Family healing womens resource

In women, the natural process of menopause, with its subsequent decline of hormones, is sometimes an easy process—but, frequently, not. Often, in fact, the resulting side-effects are less than desirable. Loss of libido, or sexual desire, is one side-effect that makes life more difficult to deal with. This can lead to misunderstanding and confusion for both partners. Of course, menopause is not the only reason for a decreased libido, however. Declining sexual desire can be due to emotional issues, post-childbirth trauma, breastfeeding, menopause, drug reactions, stress, negative body image, relationship conflicts, hormonal imbalances and physical responses such as pain or inability to reach orgasm.

Here is the good news, though. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can help boost a slumped libido. In Chinese medical theory, decreased sexual desire is described as an imbalance in the flow of energy or Qi (pronounced “chee”) or deficiency in the amount of vitality and energy in each organ system. An organ system includes the traditional organ, its energetic nature and its associated meridian (channel the Qi flows through). Once the specific pattern of imbalance is identified, acupuncture points and, sometimes, herbal formulas are chosen, and the treatment is applied. By stimulating these acupuncture points, various changes in the body’s biochemistry will occur. These changes are directed to balance the body-mind connection and strengthen the patient’s sexual health. Acupuncture can also be used to enhance or alter several other sexual health conditions in both men and women.
