Sleep and Vitamins

Taking proper vitamins and minerals may prevent trouble falling or staying asleep. Too much copper, especially if taken prior to bedtime, may increase the occurrence of nightmares by over-stimulating the creative areas of the brain. Foods, such as grapes and chocolate, contain high levels of copper. As a result, cutting back on these foods prior to sleep may help.

Calcium, on the other hand, can help alleviate restlessness. A glass of warm milk at bedtime may help with relieving muscle cramps. For those who are lactose intolerant, taking a daily vitamin that offers a therapeutic dose of calcium may be a good choice. However, according to a study described by Dr. Carman et al., calcium supplements may slightly intensify agitation in psychotic patients. Vitamin D may also trigger such symptomatology.

A magnesium deficiency can detract from getting a full, deep sleep. Symptoms may include waking up at the slightest noise, …

Human Growth Hormone

Human growth hormone is known as the Master Hormone or the “Hormone of Youth”. It controls the release of many other hormones in the body and is made by the pituitary gland in the center of the brain. During childhood, HGH directs the growth of the body. In adults, HGH begins to decline steeply with age. This decline is associated with many of the effects of aging. Hundreds of studies have been done on the use of HGH in adults. It has been found to raise energy levels, enhance lean muscle, decrease body fat, strengthen the heart, improve cholesterol, fortify bones, smooth out wrinkles, sharpen memory, improve sexual function, regenerate damaged tissues, boost the immune system, and improve sleep.

HGH comes in many forms, the most potent being an injection given by authorized medical professionals. This is quite expensive however, and there are many alternative forms of HGH available on …

Omega 3 Capsules

Doctors and scientists believe that good HDL cholesterol helps to remove bad LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream, preventing artery-blocking build-up known as atherosclerosis. Omega 3 capsules also lower triglyceride levels which are high in most people who have coronary heart disease.

In other words, the use of a daily omega 3 supplement may help guard against heart disease and possibly strokes.

But it gets even better….

The brain also benefits from the DHA and EPA fatty acids found in omega 3 capsules. About one third of the brain’s mass is DHA. The body does not produce DHA on its own. It must be consumed in the form of foods like fatty fish and leafy greens or in the form of omega 3 supplements. Studies have shown that increasing DHA levels in the bloodstream, by adding an omega 3 supplement to a patient’s diet, may help to lesse the symptoms associated …

Probiotics and Friendly Flora

There are harmful bacteria and helpful bacteria. The hard-working, friendly bacteria produce a variety of substances than can prevent cancerous tumors, deactivate viruses, produce natural antibodies, reduce cholesterol and enhance the immune system.

They even produce and distribute vitamins (such as the B-complex) among your organs. One particular strain of bacteria called lactobacillus salivarius produces acidophin, an antibiotic that helps protect against harmful bacteria.

What’s the significance of all this? If you’ve even taken traditional medicine, you know that it doesn’t always do what it’s supposed to. Modern medicine that is designed to kill bacteria does exactly that – it kills bacteria, regardless of whether it is the helpful or the harmful kind. Medicine like that can actually poison your body by having a negative influence on the helpful bacteria.

The exciting news is that you can take probiotics to supplement the friendly bacteria your body already produces. Having the …

Mangosteen

Mangosteen is at least as effective as most pharmacological agents as far as antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties are concerned. Diabetics are increasingly in favor of its regular use and report that their need for insulin decreases considerably with the ingestion of mangosteen products.

The medicinal benefits of mangosteen will doubtlessly be heralded for a long time to come. Many more will be announced and either confirmed or dismissed in the process. At the moment, there is an understandable trend towards treatment with naturopathic agents like mangosteen extracts in lieu of prescription drugs.

Those properties may be taken as confirmed (unlike some of the miraculous benefits ascribed to it.) However, the highest testimonial that can be given for including this legendary (and certainly not inexpensive) plant in one’s diet is the fact that people who do apparently enjoy better overall health. This means that they appear to be less prone …

Remember When Buying Drugs Online

  • Conduct Your Research
    Always refer to online pharmacy review sites to know the most trusted companies. Reading through these feedback will give you a clear picture which site you can actually trust. Other review sites include price evaluations among different medicine companies. The prices will always vary among these different drug stores, whether offline or from the net. Evaluate all the prices available to understand which offer is value for your money.
  • Double Check its Authenticity
    A trusted Internet drug store advertises it has a licensed pharmacist. The licensed pharmacist is in charge of answering your questions or clarifications about the drugs marketed. The company must also require the buyers to deliver a doctor’s prescribed note. The note is commonly sent through email, traditional mail, or through fax. This delivery will verify and authorize your purchase for the medicines. The pharmacy should follow this precaution since it’s unlawful to send

Prebiotics And Probiotics Benefit Your Health

Probiotics are substances with healthy bacteria, that when is ingested stays on our digestive tract. When there is an imbalance in healthy and bad bacteria in the gut, we experience symptoms in the gastrointestinal tract and in other parts.

Prebiotics are substances that when you ingested them promote healthy bacteria in your digestive tract, in the colon. Prebiotics keep the microflora in the gut healthy.

The complement each other, prebiotics makes sure that there is a right environment for healthy bacteria to grow and function in your digestive system. So if you fail to take enough prebiotics in your daily nutrition, taking probiotics will not keep enough healthy bacteria in your intestines.

Yogurt and other foods that contain prebiotics and probiotics are called synbiotics.

If you have unhealthy prebiotic levels in the gut, results in an imbalance of bacteria in the gut.

These are some of the symptoms you may …

Creatine Supplements

Creatine is really a protein building block and is a naturally occurring amino acid found mainly in muscles. About a third of the creatine in our bodies is in pure form while the rest is mixed with phosphate in our bodies and is called creatine phosphate or phosphocreatine. When the body performs high-intensity short duration exercise like weight lifting or sprinting, phosphocreatine is broken down into creatine and phosphate. The energy released during this process is used to regenerate ATP which is a major source of energy within the body which drives protein production, muscle contraction and a number of other biological processes. All this can be greatly enhanced by taking creatine supplements.

The reason why creatine supplements are so popular is that it is believed to enhance athletic performance, especially the ones involving high-intensity short bursts of energy or activity. Sporting activities like weight lifting and body building, as …

Benefits of Vitamin D

Scientists have long suspected that one of the benefits of vitamin D is fighting cancer. Decades of research now suggest that vitamin D protects against skin cancer and
several other kinds of cancer by promoting “apoptosis.”

Vitamin D in effect tells the cancer cell to switch itself off and stop reproducing. It may in some cases even cause cancer cells to revert to normal cells.

And the anti-cancer benefits of vitamin D are just the beginning. Other potential applications of vitamin D include:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease. Preliminary studies show that vitamin D may increase the rate of cellular repair in the brain 200%.
  • Prostate cancer. One of the benefits of vitamin D is a special anti-cancer potency in the prostate.
  • Breast cancer. Women who consume 500 IU of vitamin D a day from low-fat dairy products have a greatly reduced risk of developing breast cancer before menopause.

And the major application …

Generic Drugs and Online Pharmacies

Some people believe much of the misinformation published by those who would have them pay ten times more for genuine drugs rather than the far cheaper generic versions. Much of the confusion and misconception exists because, understandably, many can’t see how the generic drug can be the same thing but be so cheap. Well, here is why the vast difference exists. It’s no secret, nor is it difficult to understand. It’s simply economics versus opportunism (although sometimes justified).

The following applies to all generic drugs sold through online pharmacies and in retail pharmacies on the street. There is no difference.

When the drug is first researched, discovered and developed, it takes a number of years and many, many millions (if not billions) of dollars in research, failure, more research, testing through multiple stages. Then come the trials, which have to satisfy the likes of the FDA (most countries have their …
