Healthy Vitamins Joins with MegaFood to Announce New Mens and Womens Boosters with Maca for Men and Women


(PRWEB) March 31, 2015

Gail Bowman, owner of Healthy Vitamins, an online health food store, stated today, “The MegaFood company has recently come out with a line of booster powders to add to smoothies. These very popular powders allow you to use your regular smoothie ingredients, but add a pop of something special like; Turmeric, Vitamin C or a Daily Purifier. This week, MegaFood has announced their latest addition to this line with a new Daily Maca formula for Men and Women over 40!”

Maca, a root that belongs to the radish family, is most commonly available in powder form. Grown in the mountains of Peru, it has been called “Peruvian ginseng.” For centuries, Maca has been prized for its vitamin-rich nutrients and hormone-balancing properties by the people of Peru. Recently, Maca has been gaining in popularity in the United States for its health benefits.

Acoording to Nava Atlas of VegKitchen.com, Some of the health benefits of Maca are:

1. Vitamins

Maca is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids.

2. Sexual function

Maca is widely used to promote sexual function of both men and women. It serves as a boost to libido and increases endurance. At the same time it balances hormones and increases fertility.

3. Women’s health and mood

Maca relieves menstrual issues and menopause. It alleviates cramps, body pain, hot flashes, anxiety, mood swings, and depression.

4. Energy

Within days of using maca, energy levels may increase. It is also known for increasing stamina. Many athletes take maca for peak performance.

5. General health

Maca helps overall health in a number of ways. It supplies iron and helps restore red blood cells, which aids anemia and cardiovascular diseases. Maca keeps bones and teeth healthy and promotes wound healing. When used in conjunction with a good workout regime, Maca may help increase muscle mass.

6. Skin

Many people take maca for skin issues, as for some people it helps to clear acne and blemishes. Another benefit for skin is that it may decrease sensitivity. In hot or cold weather, maca may help your skin withstand extreme temperatures.

7. Mood balance

Maca may help alleviate symptoms of anxiety, stress, depression or mood swings, though evidence is anecdotal. Some have reported an increase in mental energy and focus.

MegaFood’s new Nutrient Booster Powders have been specially formulated with Maca and synergistic herbs including black cohosh for woman and saw palmetto for men to help support changes that come with aging.

With the Daily Maca Booster Powders, Megafood has harnessed all the benefits of Maca, which isn’t always easy to find at the store, and has conveniently made it into an unsweetened whole food powder, so customers can easily add it to smoothies, fresh juices, protein shakes and more.

According to Megafood spokeswoman Stacey Gillespie, FoodState Director of New Products, “Although Maca’s popularity amongst healthy consumers has recently grown, there have been limited available products that combine organic maca with other vitalizing, body-rejuvenating herbs, until now. At MegaFood, we are committed to crafting nourishing supplements that not only stay true to the intention of food, but also make it easy and convenient for consumers to incorporate a variety of eclectic foods into their diet, without all of the challenges of trying to find and prepare these elusive ingredients. These new nutrient powders are hands-down the easiest, most convenient way to include Maca and other amazing anti-aging herbs into your daily routine.”

Daily Maca Plus Women Over 40 helps women who are experiencing hormonal imbalances and conditions related to perimenopause and menopause, as it provides relief from occasional conditions related to menopause including hot flashes, moodiness, sleep disturbances and cramping, while simultaneously promoting vitality, heart health and a positive outlook.

For men, Daily Maca Plus Men Over 40 is designed to support energy, stamina and vitality, while MegaFood’s Eleuthero root plus Rhodiola root promotes healthy endurance, mental performance and core inner energy.

Healthy Vitamins will have these brand new products in stock and on special sale this month, April 2015 (Starting March 31, 2015). Adding the products to your cart on this Sale Page, will automatically load the sale discount. Gail Bowman has owned and operated Healthy vitamins since 2003, and has specialized in whole food, organic and Non GMO supplements from the very first.

Hoosier Lottery and Ivy Tech Community College announce New Course Offering

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) February 28, 2015

The Hoosier Lottery and Ivy Tech Community College today announced a first-of-its-kind partnership with the goal of providing a free resource to adult Hoosiers seeking to increase their financial literacy.

The Hoosier Lottery and Ivy Tech are together launching a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), an educational experience using vignettes and interactive test questions to provide guidelines for Hoosiers on basic financial skills. The MOOC’s content and benefits are initially being promoted to Hoosier Lottery winners and Ivy Tech students statewide, but the course is free and available to access by all adults throughout the State of Indiana by visiting http://www.LearnFinancialLiteracy.com.

Participants may learn various aspects of financial literacy and money management through four modules, ranging from budgeting money and managing credit to paying off debt and planning for retirement.

“I am pleased the Hoosier Lottery and Ivy Tech now offer this financial tool to Lottery winners, Ivy Tech students and adults throughout the State,” said Hoosier Lottery Executive Director Sarah Taylor. “We support responsible lottery play and encourage winners to seek counsel from a trusted financial professional or attorney before making decisions on how to manage their windfall.”

“Our financial investment to assist in the production of the MOOC exemplifies GTECH Indiana’s commitment to corporate social responsibility, which is a pillar of the Lottery’s annual business plan,” said GTECH Indiana COO & General Manager Colin Hadden.

“Partnering with the Hoosier Lottery to provide Ivy Tech students with a free resource on financial literacy is a win for our students,” said Ivy Tech Provost and Senior Vice President Dr. Mary Ostrye. “I am confident participants seeking to understand the basics of financial literacy will find the content useful upon completion of the course.”

February is a fitting month to make the financial literacy course available to Ivy Tech students, as thousands of students are in the process of applying for financial aid before the March 10 state deadline. More than 54 percent of Ivy Tech students receive financial assistance for their education through the form of federal Pell grants. As the recipients of financial aid, Ivy Tech aims to ensure students have the appropriate resources available to manage money and pay off debt should students obtain loans.

Interested Hoosiers can access the MOOC by visiting the following web address: http://www.LearnFinancialLiteracy.com. Participants who successfully complete the course receive a printable certificate.

The MOOC was produced by Indianapolis-based Creative Street Media Group, with financial literacy guidance from senior-level KeyBank officials. Financing to produce the MOOC was in part provided by GTECH Corp., the parent company to GTECH Indiana that works on behalf of the Hoosier Lottery in the areas of distribution, sales and marketing.

National Anti-Vivisection Society and International Foundation for Ethical Research Announce New Research Grants for Promising Young Investigators

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 11, 2014

The National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS) and the International Foundation for Ethical Research (IFER) are pleased to announce three first-time recipients of IFER Graduate Fellowships as part of the 2014-2015 grant cycle. By funding early career researchers with an interest in developing innovative alternatives to animal testing, NAVS and IFER hope to seed the scientific field with talented individuals prepared to integrate scientific discovery with ethics and respect for animals.

Recipients of IFER Graduate Fellowships, selected by IFER’s Scientific Advisory Board, have the potential to positively change the course of science by working to promote the advancement of humane methodologies that can spare animal suffering.

The investigators who are receiving first-time IFER Graduate Fellowships for 2014-2015 are:

Bryan Hassell, a Ph.D. candidate working in Dr. Donald Ingber’s laboratory at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, has received funding for his project, “Human Cancer-on-a-Chip as a Replacement for Animal Testing.” Bryan seeks to develop an organ-on-a-chip platform to determine how lung cancer cells respond to chemotherapy depending on their organ-specific microenvironment, as well as to identify new anticancer therapies. Bryan’s physics and engineering background, in combination with the extensive biological training that he is receiving in the Ingber lab, will allow him to take a multidisciplinary approach toward developing an innovative model that has the potential to replace the use of animals in cancer research.

Erica Schlesinger, a Ph.D. student at the University of California San Francisco working in Dr. Tejal Desai’s lab, received support for her project, “In-vitro 3D Flow Through System for Improved Intestinal Permeability Model.” Erica aims to develop a model in which human intestinal cells are grown on a tubular scaffold to better mimic the microenvironment of the intestine. Using this approach, experimental drugs can be flowed through the system, enabling drug absorption to be assessed. This new model has the potential to improve upon existing in vitro approaches to study drug absorption while reducing the need for more complex animal experimentation.

Sun Nee Tan, a Ph.D. candidate in the Graduate Program in Neuroscience at the University of British Columbia under the mentorship of Dr. Martin McKeown, will be using state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques on human subjects for her project, “Structural and Functional Neuroplasticity of Parkinson’s Disease Following a Sensori-Motor Contingent Musical Walking Intervention (Ambulosono).” Her study will determine the effectiveness of a music-contingent walking exercise program as an intervention for Parkinson’s disease subjects. Neuroscience studies traditionally rely heavily on animal models, despite their limited translatability to human populations; therefore the use of imaging techniques on human subjects to study neuroplasticity may replace conventional research which uses animal testing for this purpose.

IFER Graduate Fellowships are awarded annually in amounts up to $ 15,000 to early career scientists who are developing alternatives to the use of animals in product testing, biomedical research and education. Fellowships are renewable for up to three years. More information on the IFER Graduate Fellowship Program can be found at http://www.ifer.org/fellowships.php.

For more information, visit http://www.navs.org.

ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION FOR ETHICAL RESEARCH

Founded in 1985, the International Foundation for Ethical Research (IFER) supports the development, validation and implementation of innovative scientific methodologies that advance science and replace the use of animals in research, testing and education. IFER is funded primarily by a grant from the National Anti-Vivisection Society.
