Super C™ supplement

Super C™ supplement

As the weather gets colder, it’s important to support your immune system!

TABLETS: Super C™ not only contains 2,166% of the recommended dietary intake of vitamin C per serving, but it is also fortified with rutin, citrus bioflavonoids, and minerals to balance electrolytes and enhance the effectiveness and absorption of vitamin C.* The essential oils that are added may also increase bioflavonoid activity. Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins required by our bodies. The ingredients in Super C play a role in normal immune and circulatory functions, help to strengthen connective tissues, and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity.* Because our bodies cannot manufacture vitamin C, we can benefit by consuming this powerful antioxidant daily.

How to use: For reinforcing immune strength, take 2 tablets daily. For maintenance, take 1 tablet daily. Best if taken before meals.

CHEWABLES: For those that have a difficult time swallowing pills, Super C comes in a convenient chewable.  These chewables combine pure Orange essential oil with a proprietary blend of camu camu, acerola, cherry, and rose hips fruit powder to create a powerful immune-supporting supplement. Together, these premium ingredients deliver desirable polyphenols, carotenoids, and optimal amounts of vitamin C.

Not only are the chewable tablets convenient, but they are OH so delicious!!  You and your children will think you are getting a treat instead of supporting your immune system.

How to use: Take daily or when additional vitamin C is desired.  Directions: Take 1 chewable tablet 3 times daily or as needed.

And as you’d come to expect from Young Living, these supplements are free of common allergens, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, salt, sugar, starch, corn, wheat, yeast, and soy products.

Below are some interesting facts about the ingredients and why they were chosen for this product:

Camu camu is harvested by hand from canoes in the Amazon region of South America. It contains phenolics, antioxidants, and amino acids.

Rose hip contains vitamin C and is rich in carotenoids and phenolics. Europeans have used it in herbal teas for many years because of its rich vitamin C content.

Super C contains whole-fruit powders and no added fructose, which makes it taste great and a great option to support children and adults.

Animal Scents® Collection

Animal Scents® Collection

Last week I talked in general terms about using essential oils with animals and what precautions you need to take.  This week I wanted to take a closer look at the options that Young Living has to offer.  Not only does Young Living offer me non-toxic solutions for me and my beloved pet, I also love being a part of a company that gives back:

A portion of all proceeds from Animal Scents products goes to support Vital Ground, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the habitat of grizzly bears and other wide-roaming wildlife.

Animals and essential oils

Animals and essential oils

If your pet or animal has a medical issue, please consult with your veterinarian before administering essential oils.

When I say that essential oils can be enjoyed by the whole family, I mean the fur-babies too!   Why should they be left out of the fun?  But because our pets can’t tell us how oils make them feel, and are generally more sensitive to scents and oils than humans, we should proceed with caution and keep a few salient points in mind

  • Start by heavily diluting oils and using in moderation.  For instance, use one drop of oil mixed with 4-5 drops of carrier oil.  Monitor your pets reaction before proceeding further.  For larger pets, decrease dilution as needed.  Smaller animals should always be given a diluted dose.
  • Do not apply oils near a pets eyes, nose, mouth or other sensitive areas.
  • Do not use hot oils such as Wintergreen or Peppermint
  • Avoid using high-phenol oils such as Oregano, Clove and Thyme with any animals, especially cats.  Also, cats are generally adverse to citrus oils.
  • The smaller the animal, the less oil you should use.
  • To acclimate your animal to the scents of essential oils, try diffusing or wearing the oils as you are near your pet.
  • to apply topically:
    • For cats and dogs, the paws and pads are a great place to start
    • For hooved animals, apply to spine or flank
    • Try rubbing oils on your hands and then stroking on your pets fur
    • For larger areas, try mixing with water or carrier oils and spraying on your animal.  (Be careful around the eyes!)
    • Use Animal Scents Ointment to seal and protect any area where oils have been applied, if desired.

Super Cal™ Plus

Super Cal™ Plus

There are plenty of calcium supplements you can choose from, but Super Cal Plus™ was created to offer more than just calcium and minerals—it is a true bone-health supplement. With a synergistic blend of bioavailable calcium, magnesium, vitamins D and K, and other trace minerals, Super Cal Plus supports the structure, integrity, and density of bones and teeth. Plus, adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life as part of a well-balanced diet may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.*

Super Cal Plus uses a marine mineral blend derived from red algae that’s harvested off the coast of Iceland.  Unlike rock based calcium that contains little to no supplemental trace minerals, this ingredient has proven bioavailability due to its unique structure and spectrum of minerals.

This unique seaweed absorbs calcium, magnesium, and other trace minerals from ocean water, bringing them together to support overall bone health, including bone-density support.

Super Cal Plus also includes a unique fermented polysaccharide complex to support bone resorption and formation. This ingredient supports bone density by potentially mimicking the function of estrogen. Both men and women depend on estrogen receptors on bone cells to prevent too much bone loss. With these powerhouse ingredients, plus a special blend of handpicked essential oils, Super Cal Plus plays an important role in maintaining overall bone health to help you stay moving.*

How to use: Take 2 capsules daily with food.

super Cal plus

Features and Benefits:

  • Uses a synergistic blend of bioavailable calcium, magnesium, and other trace minerals derived from red algae harvested off the coast of Iceland
  • Features a dual-action blend that helps maintain and support the structure, integrity, and density of bones*
  • Promotes healthy bones by supporting the body’s ability to resorb bone tissue (osteoclasts) and deposit new bone tissue (osteoblasts)*
  • Provides an excellent source of calcium, magnesium, vitamin K, and vitamin D
  • Helps support and contribute to the maintenance of healthy bones using calcium, magnesium, and a unique matrix of trace minerals*

Formulated with:

  • Idaho Blue spruce (Picea pungens)
  • Black spruce (Picea mariana)
  • Copaiba (Copaifera officinalis)
  • Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanioides)
  • Peppermint (Mentha piperita)

FAQs:

Q. Why was Super Cal reformulated into Super Cal Plus? Will Super Cal still be available?
A. Super Cal Plus uses ingredients based on the latest research available. The calcium and mineral sources are different than Super Cal, and Super Cal Plus utilizes new methods shown to support healthy bones. Super Cal will continue to be a product in our nutritional supplement line only in certain international markets. MegaCal™, however, will continue to be part of the line for those who prefer a calcium supplement in powdered form.

Q. How is the Super Cal Plus formula different from Super Cal?
A. Unlike Super Cal, the calcium and mineral ingredients in Super Cal Plus are derived from plant sources (red algae). Super Cal Plus also includes a fermented glucan ingredient, herbal  extracts, and vitamin D and K to work synergistically with calcium to support the structure, density, and integrity of bones.

Q. When should I take the supplement? Can the dose be split into two smaller doses?
A. Mineral supplements are best taken close to bedtime with food; however, the efficacy is still adequate when taken at other times of the day. Super Cal Plus can be taken either in one full dose or separately as desired. Keep in mind that calcium impedes iron absorption.
Allow at least four hours between taking Super Cal Plus and a supplement containing iron.

Since I’m trapped inside while Hurricane Irma passes us by, I thought this is a great time to clean my makeup brushes!  Never thought of cleaning your makeup brushes before?  Consider these reasons why you should:

  1. Bacteria, dirt and dust buildup:   The bushes pick up the natural oils in your face as well as primer and foundation.  This provides a moist rich environment which  is a breeding ground for bacteria.  And if you have a cut or nick on your face like a pimple or freshly tweezed hair?  That’s bad news.
  2. Clogged Pores: All this makeup, dirt and dust you continuously transfer to your face can clog your pores.
  3. Breakouts:  See above.  Nuff said.
  4. Bristle Health: Regular cleaning helps to keep your bristles soft.  If you don’t clean your brushes they become stiff and lose their form which can cause redness and skin irritation.
  5. Uneven Application: Brushes with multiple color and texture residue can make perfecting that “look” a bit of a challenge.  Colors mix and streak and become impossible to blend well.  All this adds time and frustration to your routine.

Furthermore, commercial cleaners contain toxins or alcohol which may break down animal hairs, putting your brush investment at risk!  And don’t share you makeup tools with anyone – friends don’t let friends get pinkeye.

AminoWise™

AminoWise™

Amino Acid Supplement

AminoWise is a during and after-workout replenishing boost for the muscles with no added sugars, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, or artificial colors or flavors.  There are 3 different blends in this supplement that help you fight fatigue and and enhance recovery during and after exercise.

The Muscle Performance Blend provides branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) including L-citrulline, and B-alanine. During exercise our muscles grow and tone but small amounts of muscle can be also be consumed as energy.  BCAA’s can prevent your body from using muscle as fuel by providing energy right to the muscle and promote lean muscle mass. L-citrulline is a powerful agent in producing Nitric Oxide (NO) in the blood. Nitric oxide is a vasodilator, which means it helps improve vascular blood flow. Enhanced blood flow during exercise can lead to better oxygenation of muscles, faster removal of toxic metabolites, and potentially improve your work out capacity!

The Recovery Blend contains wolfberry powder, zinc, Vitamin E, and antioxidant ingredients to support recovery after a hard workout by reducing the release of lactic acid.

The Hydration Mineral Blend keeps you more hydrated which helps you recover faster.  This blend replenishes important minerals lost during exercise such as sodium citrate, potassium citrate, calcium citrate, and magnesium citrate.
