Deal of the Week: 20% off Colorado Nutrition Lutein – 20mg 120 Vcaps

Lutein is an antioxidant found in many plants. It is from the carotenoid family, which consists of naturally occurring fat-soluble pigments in plants. It’s basically a yellow pigment. It is the main carotenoid found in the macula, a tiny part of the retina responsible for central vision.

Lutein has been shown effective in the treatment of cataracts.1

Lutein works extremely well in protecting the retina against sunlight damage.2 Supplementation with 6 mg of Lutein daily may decrease the occurrence of macular degeneration by more than 50%.3

Most Americans do not get enough Lutein in their diets. Research has suggested 6 to 20 mg of Lutein per day are needed to realize its health benefits. Is Lutein widely available in doses of up to 20 mg or more? It is in a variety of nutritional supplements, fortified foods and beverages for people wanting to supplement their dietary intake of Lutein.

Colorado Nutrition Lutein contains 20mg of elemental Lutein. Lutein powder typically contains between 5% and 10% elemental Lutein in it. Beware when purchasing Lutein if the manufacturer does not state how the 20mg. is derived. If they are putting 20 mg. of Lutein powder at 5% elemental Lutein the product would really only contain 1mg. of elemental Lutein. Colorado Nutrition is a brand you can trust!

Alpha Lipoic Acid – Antioxidant Supplement for Diabetes

Alpha Lipoic Acid is prescribed in Germany for adult onset of diabetes. There it has been shown to help for the following reasons:

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid increases the sugar burning ability of insulin
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid decreases insulin resistance
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid increases ATP production
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid decreases the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy

Alpha-lipoic acid has produced convincing evidence of it’s abilty to aid in glucose control. It has also proven to be a strong antioxidant in the fight against diabetes. In a recent human studies, alpha-lipoic acid alone, significantly reduced glucose levels in type 2 Diabetes. A study published in Diabetes Care in February 2009, shows German doctors gave lean and obese type 2 Diabetes Patients 600 milligrams of alpha-lipoic acid twice per day. Although more drastic changes were noted in lean people, both groups had lower fasting glucose concentrations.

Researchers believe that alpha-lipoic acid works by lowering the levels of lactate and pyruvate that are increased after people ingest carbohydrates. Lactate and pyruvate are products of the digestive process that can lead to damage like lactic acidosis. Other studies have led to similar conclusions of alpha-lipoic acid’s beneficial effects on blood glucose levels. ABC news did a television story on its power as an antioxidant, and an entire book has been written about it.

“Lipoic Acid in Health and Disease” is edited by Jurgen Fuchs, MD, PhD, and Guido Zimmer, MD, PhD, of Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, and Lester Packer, PhD, of the University of California, Berkeley.
The book contains numerous studies with evidence that alpha-lipoic acid fights insulin resistance and neuropathy.

Natural Health magazine says in its “Consumer Guide to Vitamins & Minerals,” July-August 1998 issue, “100 to 600 milligrams per day is a helpful amount of alpha-lipoic acid for people with diabetes.”

L-Carnitine is an amino acid(like) nutrient that aids the body in turning fat into energy. Our body produces it naturally in the liver and kidneys. It is stored in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, and sperm. Some people, however, are deficient in l-carnitine as their bodies cannot make enough or transport it properly to the tissues so it can be used. Health conditions, such as Angina or Intermittent Claudication, can cause insufficient levels of l-carnitine in the body. There are also a number of prescription medications that deplete our natural l-carnitine supply.

L-Carnitine has been proposed as an alternative remedy in the treatment of many conditions. It has been known to help reduce the risk of serious heart conditions including Angina, heart attack, and heart failure. It also helps relieve the painful cramping symptoms of diabetic neuropathy in the arms, legs, and feet. L-Carnitine can help reduce symptoms of fatigue and make you feel more energized.

L-Carnitine can also be used to enhance exercise performance and weight loss. Low sperm counts have been linked to low l-carnitine levels in men. Several studies suggest that L-Carnitine supplementation may increase sperm count and mobility and even help to improve male sexual function.

Deal of the Day: Glucosamine & Chondroitin

CN-Glucosamine-and-Chondroitin-240Caps
Glucosamine & Chondroitin
240 Caps
from Colorado Nutrition
(Retail: $49.95)
Our Price: $12.76

Both Glucosamine and Chondroitin occur naturally in the body and act as building blocks for the functioning of healthy cartilage. Glucosamine and Chondroitin have been studied and have been found to be critical nutrients that assist in supporting flexibility, comfort and range of motion.

Glucosamine: Glucosamine is one of the major components involved with the formation of cartilage (critical lubricants and shock absorbers necessary to maintain and restore healthy joint performance). Glucosamine facilitates the renewal of cartilage and helps keep cartilage lubricated to maintain its naturally slippery texture. These mechanisms of action improve the structure of joints.

Chondroitin: Chondroitin supports existing cartilage by promoting the quality of the synovial fluid — it attracts fluid to act as a spongy shock absorber for the joints. It works together with Glucosamine to promote the healthy flow of water and nutrients into cartilage producing cells.

When taken together, Glucosamine and Chondroitin work naturally with your body to promote healthy, flexible joints. This process of revitalizing healthy joints takes time and depends on your specific individual nutritional requirements. With daily continued use, you should look forward to experiencing the benefits of taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin.
