How to Find Your Zen this Holiday Season 🎄

Find Your Zen this Season... LIPOSOMAL ZEN ENHANCED CALMNESS DAY OR NIGHT Does Life Stress You out Sometimes? Find Your Zen

Is your life is as busy as mine is during the holiday season? Holiday parties, house guests and everything from juggling work and family to shopping and running errands in the chaos of the holiday season can lead to anxiety, stress and ultimately a poor night’s sleep.

To combat holiday stress I often try yoga, meditation and some extra pampering. When that doesn’t work, I reach for this miracle product by Allergy Research.  It’s called Liposomal Zen and It’s so simple to use, I keep a spray bottle in my purse. There is a capsule version available also.

This product was designed to provide you with the support you need to manage daily stress. What makes Zen so effective for calming moods is the proprietary formula that contains two key ingredients, GABA and L-theanine.

Zen stress relief supplement by Allergy Research has several key health benefits:

  • Promotes a relaxed and calm state of mind.
  • Helps to balance brain activity to enhance feelings of well-being.

This unique combination of L-theanine and GABA has been formulated to support the production of alpha-wave activity in the brain. And it keeps its promises. This unique feeling of relaxation is just one of the benefits I and others who have used it report. Two capsules offer a unique and natural path to relaxation without sedation or effects of heavy over the counter or prescription medications.

Allergy Research Group uses only the purest raw materials available and are known for the strictest quality control procedures available since 1979. Allergy Research Group is licensed by The California Department of Health Services—Food and Drug Branch.

A 2015 study on GABA published by the National Institute of Health found that GABA supplementation can help improve performance of planned daily tasks and reduce anxiety.

The study said, “Oral GABA supplementation can act directly on the CNS in a peripheral aspect through the gut. There is definitely a gut-brain relationship between nutrition and the gut microbiome and how they support brain health and function. The gut and brain communicate through the nervous system, immune system, and hormones.

In addition, the hypothalamus (emotional neuroendocrine control center of the brain) is outside and not protected by the blood brain barrier, so these two factors can explain how GABA affects the CNS. It is clear in the research that GABA is helpful with anxiety, and there are many case studies which demonstrate its effectiveness.”

The way GABA and L-theanine work synergystically together is explained in this article by Pshchology Today, “The anti-anxiety effect of L-theanine is achieved through enhanced alpha brain wave activity and increased synthesis of GABA. Increased GABA, in turn, increases brain levels of dopamine and reduces serotonin, resulting in general feelings of calm and well-being.”

Ashwagandha Relieves Stress

How Does Ashwagandha Help Relieve Stress?
Ashwagandha is such an amazing healing herb. It’s wonderful in helping ease anxiety and in restoring your immune system after being sick. Ashwagandha has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. If you are experiencing any symptoms of anxiety, memory loss, or a decrease in energy levels try Pure Encapsulation’s Ashwagandha .

Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that has amazing benefits on mood

Ashwagandha the Adaptogenic Herb

What are some Ashwaganda Benefits?

  • Boost immunity
  • Reduce anxiety and depression
  • Stabilize blood sugar
  • Reduce brain cell degeneration
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Combat effects of stress
  • Increase stamina and endurance

 

Ashwagandha for Stress Reduction
In a clinical trial, patients having chronic stress took 300 mg capsules of Ashwagandha or a placebo twice daily for 2 months. The participants were then asked to answer three questionnaires they had also filled out at the beginning of the study. The difference in their scores was remarkable.

Patients who were part of  the Ashwagandha group showed reduction in symptoms of chronic stress. Reduction in the severity stress score was 44%, physical symptoms score was 76.1%, anxiety and insomnia score was 69.7%, social dysfunction score 68.1% and severe depressive symptoms score 79.3%.

People who took Ashwagandha had fewer physical symptoms of anxiety and depression, felt calmer and slept better. Their productivity also increased.

Ashwagandha for Anti-anxiety
In studies conducted on rats, Ashwagandha acted as a mood stabilizer and had an anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effect on rats suffering from anxiety and depression. Its effect was comparable with that of diazepam, a standard anxiolytic drug.

In other studies it was also observed that Ashwagandha induces a calming anxiolytic effect that is comparable to the drug Lorazepam in all three standards. Ashwagandha also exhibits an antidepressant effect, comparable with that induced by imipramine.

Ashwagandha for Weight management
A 2016 study of body weight management followed 52 subjects under chronic stress. Half the group received ashwagandha root extract and half received a placebo. Over 8 weeks both groups were assessed for food cravings, serum cortisol, body weight and body mass index. The ashwagandha group showed improved scores in all categories, while the placebo group did not.

Ashwagandha for Better Sleep
Ashwagandha has been studied for it’s use as a remedy in insomnia caused by stress, anxiety and depression. It works by binding to GABA receptors. It produces calming, anti‐anxiety, anti‐convulsive, highly‐stabilizing effects. Excessive neuronal activity leads to restlessness and insomnia, but GABA in the brain inhibits the number of nerve cells that fire, and helps to reduce anxiety, uplift mood, and induce sleep.

Ashwagandha for Brain Fog
When used in a trial for those suffering with beginning symptoms of brain fog, a 2017 study of 50 adults examined the safety and efficacy of ashwagandha in memory improvement and cognitive function. While the placebo group showed no particular improvement in cognitive function, the ashwagandha group tested better in immediate and general memory, improved executive function, attention and information processing speed.

Stock up on ashwagandha today before the holiday season.

Recommended dosage is 500 mg 2 x daily.
After just a few weeks you will notice a difference.
Some people notice a difference in only 5 days.

Why Dirt Is Good

 

Good Dirt Why is Dirt in our Environmnet so Good For Us?

Microbiome Experts, Jack Gilbert, director of the University of Chicago Microbiome Center, and Rob Knight, director of the University of California Center for Microbiome Innovation, along with science writer Sandra Blakeslee recently wrote a book explaining how the environment interacts with our Microbiome. In their book “Dirt is Good”  they go on to explain scientific findings which show how good for us dirt is. “Exposure to natural healthy bacteria in the environment is really important for training our immune system and making sure it doesn’t go really haywire and attack us,” explains Jack.

This means that the more dirt you expose your children to at a young age, the better off their immune system is. Let them play outdoors in nature, in the ocean, streams, and on playgrounds. Let them play with animals. Getting dirty is a good thing. Another suggestion is to not go overboard in sterilizing everything they come in contact with or put in their mouth.

Not only do the microbes in your gut affect your immune system but they also play a role in almost every system in your body. Click Here to read more about your microbiome.

Scientists have found that your gut plays an important role in your brains neurotransmitters. Did you know that over 90% of serotonin is produced in your gut?

Having a balanced microbiome is crucial for gut health too. It plays a role in your metabolism, your propensity towards certain food cravings, obesity, and even Type 2 Diabetes.

Studies Suggest that Colloidal Silver is Effective Against Pathogens. Here’s What We Love About It:

  • Kills and prevents bacterial growth, including bacteria that are antibiotic-resistant
  • Treats and prevents sinus infections when used as an additive to a sinus rinse
  • Kills some strains of pathogenic yeasts, including Candida
  • Prevents viruses from entering human cells
  • Reduces inflammation in contact dermatitis
  • Disrupts bacterial biofilm (a slimy shield that allows bacteria to hide from antibiotics)
  • Fights against Vibrio cholera and a dangerous strain of E. coli, both of which could cause serious cases of diarrhea.

What exactly is Colloidal Silver?

Glad you asked, it’s actually silver put through a process in which a colloid of micro-fine silver particles is dispersed in ultra-pure water, free of any other ingredient or contaminant. The silver ions attach to bacteria cell membranes and suppress oxygen which does not allow them to replicate. This causes die off of pathogenic bacteria and helps your body flush it out.
