Not every natural food is good for everyone says fresh water and nutrition educator Sharon Kleyne

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) May 28, 2015

A widely accepted belief in the United States in recent decades has been that “Natural foods are always good for you.” Global water and nutrition advocate and educator Sharon Kleyne recently cautioned that this belief is not always true and that not all natural foods – no matter how nutritious – are good for everyone. Kleyne recently discussed individual differences in dietary and nutritional needs on her Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show.

The key to good nutrition, says Kleyne, is proactive personal education. It is especially important to carefully research, both pro and con, fad diets and very limited diets, before undertaking them.

The Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® recently aired the segment on May 25, 2015. For the live show or a podcast, go to http://www.SharonKleyneHour.com.

The syndicated radio show, hosted by Kleyne, is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The education oriented show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research, founded by Kleyne and specializing in fresh water, atmosphere, dehydration and vision. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry eye and eye allergies.

The most dramatic example of individual differences in nutritional needs, according to Kleyne, can be seen in people whose ancestry originated in the Arctic. Those individuals tend to have a very high tolerance for fat and animal protein and a completely vegan diet might not be as well suited for them as the same diet would be for somebody else.

Kleyne offers the following suggestions regarding food choices:

In general, fresh, locally grown organic foods are preferable to manufactured, processed and heavily packaged foods (corn on the cob is better than Fritos). Locally grow foods are better adapted to the local seasons and don’t need to be shipped as far so they are more likely to be fresh and don’t waste fossil fuel.

In season foods are more likely to be in balance with the body’s needs than out of season foods. Thus, celery from a nearby farm stand in July is far preferable to celery imported from Chile in January.

Everyone is genetically different and some people have a greater need for certain nutrients. This can sometimes be reflected in food cravings. Bear in mind, however, that when food cravings involve salt, fat, sugar, alcohol or caffeine, they are more likely reflecting addictions rather than actual needs.

Climate, activity level, age, health and medication can also affect one’s nutritional needs, Kleyne points out.

Each individual, says Kleyne, knows their own body better than any one else could. As unique individuals, each of us must determine for ourselves if our body has a greater need for one type of food and less of a need for another type of food.

The best bet, nutritionally, Kleyne observes, is almost always to eat a wide variety of natural foods. Be especially cautious of limited diets such as all lettuce or all carbohydrate.

Water is a nutrient, Kleyne stresses, so be sure to include an adequate amount of water in your diet. The need for water varies among individuals and no two people dehydrate at the same rate or in the same way. In general, Kleyne suggests a minimum of eight glasses of pure water per day, in addition to all other fluid intake. Drinks containing alcohol, excessive sugar, caffeine or carbonation tend to be dehydrating and should not be counted as part of the daily water quotient.

Kleyne believes that consuming water in full glasses is preferable to sipping. She suggests drinking two full eight ounce glasses in upon rising and at least two more full glasses during the day.

There is nothing more important to health, Kleyne concludes, than diet and nutrition. Nutrition education should be an ongoing lifelong process for everyone. Earth is changing every day and our bodies are also changing every day.

Healthy Nutrition and Exercise

What is Healthy Nutrition and Exercise?

Healthy nutrition and exercise are crucial to leading healthy lives and feeling your best at all times. It takes hard work and determination to continue this goal daily and work at keeping your body in the best shape possible. Some people think that nutrition or exercise are not for them. If you think that you do not have enough time for these things, then please think again. Nutrition and exercise are two very important concepts for everyone to understand.

First of all, nutrition is all about eating healthy and make the correct choices with your diet. It is important to eat a variety of foods packed with nutrients and vitamins for your overall health and well-being. I am sure that you have tried dieting before or may be in the middle of a long battle with staying healthy. Nutrition can be complex, but you can usually figure out for yourself if the foods that you are eating are good for you. When you decide to start eating healthier, it needs to begin with researching information on nutrition and the best food available for you. Everything that you eat gives your body fuel, and you want your body to run on the best fuel available.

Healthy Food Choices

Vegetables:

Avocados
Beets
Bell Peppers
Cabbage
Eggplant
Green Beans
Onions
Spinach
Squash
Tomatoes
Turnip Greens

Fruits:

Apples
Bananas
Figs
Grapefruit
Grapes
Oranges
Pineapples
Strawberries
Watermelon

Although nutrition is a big part of the picture, your time should also be filled with regular exercise. Healthy exercise is a big section of increased fitness. Exercise has been show to decrease depression. It also helps you feel better and reduces stress. I find that exercise keeps me going each day, and makes feel accomplished after each workout. Try to make a workout plan that fits your schedule and adapt it to meet your needs. All it takes is a willing mind and a goal to get moving. Remember that staying healthy with nutrition and exercise will always be beneficial to you. The more you are committed, the better results you will achieve. Being healthy is all about knowing your goals and meeting them with dedication and perseverence.

I am a leading enthusiast of health and different ways that people can mold their everyday lives to increase their nutrition and exercise. I love to find healthy foods to eat and experiment with new kinds of health information. I am also an avid runner, and it is my favorite form of exercise.

Nutrition Leaders Offers Reformulated Millennium 500 German Grade Creatine


Indialantic, FL (PRWEB) March 05, 2015

Nutrition Leaders, a premier purveyor of health, diet, and sports nutrition products, is pleased to offer reformulated Millennium 500 Creatine to its customers. Available from the store’s official website, Millennium 500 is a German grade creatine supplement that has been micronized to more quickly increase muscle hydration, promote muscle recovery, and aid with overall strength gains in users.

Creatine is a naturally occurring compound that acts as a reserve energy source in the body and helps fuel muscle contractions when regular ATP stores are exhausted. This is critical for athletes such as sprinters and bodybuilders because it allows them to go faster or move more weight than they ordinarily could.

“In terms of supplements, creatine is an absolute must for anyone looking to get stronger or quicker,” says Nutrition Leaders spokesman Kimba Vasquez. “By taking micronized Millennium 500, individuals will be able to put in higher quality workouts and recover sooner, both between sets and between sessions. This leads to incredibly rapid gains in terms of strength, muscle mass, speed, or what have you.”

When reformulating Millennium 500 creatine, Nutrition Leaders kept everything the same except for the granularity. This micronized version now features powder that is fine rather than coarse, which enhances the absorption rate dramatically.

“Millennium 500 is a pure German grade creatine that is about as high-quality as you can get through retail channels,” Vasquez says. “The micronized form is way more effective than ever before because it gets absorbed very quickly. And it’s not packed with dextrose like other brands, so consumers get more net creatine powder for their money. A 500-gram container of Millennium 500 will last a good 2 1/2 to 3 months or more when used as suggested, so our customers get the great results they expect and still have cash left over to pay their gym fees.”

Millennium 500 German Grade Micronized Creatine is available now at http://www.nutritionleaders.com.

National Nutrition Month


Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 05, 2015

March is National Nutrition Month®, an annual nutrition education and information campaign sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The 2015 theme is “Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle,” which promotes the consumption of fewer calories, informed food decisions, and daily exercise for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, reducing risks of chronic diseases and promoting overall wellness.

Whether a person is new to physical fitness activities or a pro, nutrition can seem complicated. Many nutritionists create intense and detailed food regimens for their clients, but a solid nutrition program can be simple and still very beneficial. For those wanting the most from a diet and fitness routine, the following tips may help:

1.    Daily balanced diet. For consistent performance at the gym or with a sport, the body needs a regular supply of quality energy for the muscles. A few daily essentials for meeting the body’s needs include: a balanced breakfast; carbohydrates for fuel; and proteins and fats appropriate for a person’s individual body-type and fitness goals.

2.    Day of the workout. For those tackling a workout first thing in the morning, be sure to have a light breakfast like fruit, toast, and/or an egg. For those who workout in the evenings, have a lunch that easily digestible but includes complex carbs. Pasta, fruits, vegetables or a salad with lean meat (chicken or fish) are good examples.

3.    Immediately prior to workout. About 30 minutes before an intense workout, eat a light to moderate snack and drink some water. The amount of food a person should ingest depends on the length and intensity of their upcoming workout. Longer, harder activities may require the individual to eat an energy bar or large banana.

4.    During workout. Necessary hydration varies from person to person, but a good rule of thumb is to intake 8 to 10 fl oz of water every 15 minutes while exercising. For those working out longer than 90 minutes, carbohydrates will likely need to be replenished as well, making a sports drink more of an ideal choice.

5.    Post-workout hydration. After a workout, water needs to be replaced in the body according to how much a person has sweated. The more perspiration, the more hydration required. To be absolutely precise, check body weight before and after the physical activity. For every pound decrease, a person should drink about 3 cups of water.

6.    Post-workout food. Glycogen stores should be replenished within two hours after an intense workout. Research shows that a 4-to-1 ratio of carbs to proteins is the ideal post-workout nutrition combination. The nourishment can come in the form of solid food, a liquid shake, or a combination of the two.

Wojo Nutrition Announces the Launch of the First Line of Single Serving Liquid Supplements Formulated to be Added to Any Drink and to Fit the Unique Needs of One’s Day


Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) February 23, 2015

Wojo Nutrition announces the launch of their six liquid single serving supplements formulated to be added to any beverage and designed to fit the needs of one’s day.

At Wojo Nutrition, they don’t see the multivitamin as a one size fits all solution to one’s nutritional needs. Every day is filled with its own challenges, and every challenge has its own solution. This is why they’ve developed a line of six liquid single serving supplements that can be added to any beverage and are each specially formulated to tackle a distinct problem head-on.

From stress-filled board meetings to draining to-do lists to that pre-workout boost, with Wojo Nutrition users pick the convenient, travel-ready supplement to suit their special needs for the day and add it to their favorite beverage. Its light taste blends instantly with any hot or cold beverage for a quick pick-me-up that’s easy on the palette and can be taken at any time.

“Wojo is also a great alternative to solid form vitamin and supplements,” said Wojo Nutrition Founder Carol Knowles. “Our different formulas fit the needs of its users whether it be for energy, focus, mood and more this is what makes Wojo so beneficial and unique.”

Each single serving formula begins with a base of 6 B vitamins that are essential to healthy nerve and cell development. It’s then enhanced with a blend of herbal extracts and naturally derived amino acids and vitamins specific to its intended use. As an added health benefit, all of their offerings are free of sugar, artificial sweeteners and flavorings, and chemical masking agents.

Currently, there are two products available for purchase. wojoENERGY is their proprietary formula, which provides balanced, feel good energy and support throughout the day, while wojoCALM is a soothing way to remove stress before it gets out of hand.

This summer they’ll be releasing four new offerings including wojoFOCUS, wojoSUN, wojoWELL, and wojoMOOD.

“I hope that people may reach for a Wojo before they make the decision to reach for a pharmaceutical product or sugary energy drinks,” said Knowles.

Wojo Nutrition will be showcasing their line of products at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California, running from March 4th-8th.

Founded in June 2012, Wojo Nutrition spent over two years developing their special formulas before bringing them to market in 2015.

“I launched Wojo as a way to provide men and women with a supplement that lets them focus on their journey, not just surviving from day to day,” said Knowles.

“Sometimes that means harnessing more energy, focus, or a better mood to face what’s ahead, and that’s where Wojo gives the body and mind a gentle nudge in the right direction.”

New Study on BioCell Collagen Published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (JISSN)


Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2015

BioCell Technology announced today the publication of a new clinical study on BioCell Collagen®. The study, now indexed on PubMed, describes the potential of BioCell Collagen® for protecting the connective tissue of the musculoskeletal system and enhancing recovery from intense exercise. The randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study was carried out by investigators at the Center for Applied Health Sciences (CAHS) who presented data in June at the 2014 International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) Conference in Clearwater Beach, Florida, USA.

Earlier clinical studies of BioCell Collagen® have substantiated its safety and efficacy in promoting joint health and skin beauty. As these studies provide evidence that the patented healthy aging ingredient supports various connective tissues throughout the body, this proof-of-concept study was conducted to investigate whether daily intake of BioCell Collagen® for six weeks could protect skeletal muscle connective tissue following an intense exercise challenge, and also enhance recovery. Data from the study showed that BioCell Collagen® attenuated deleterious changes in muscle tissue damage and inflammatory biomarkers including creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, and C-reactive protein. In addition, subjects who took BioCell Collagen® appeared to show a more robust “repeated bout effect” as compared to placebo, suggesting augmented tissue recovery and remodeling.    

“Extending its market-leading position as a key joint and skin health ingredient, this new clinical study in recreationally active healthy subjects provides intriguing dataset suggesting that this patented, research-backed dietary supplement has promising new applications in sports nutrition” says Suhail Ishaq, president of BioCell Technology, “This opens up a new category in sports nutrition regarding connective tissue protection and recovery from post-workout soreness and limiting repetitive, overuse related injuries.”

The details of the abstract are published on the JISSN website:
