4 Body Healing Health Supplements for the Body

Magnesium Supplement

Magnesium is really fast coming to its awareness as one of the most important minerals today that most people are lacking, in fact – touted  at as one of the underlying causes of many illnesses today.

Magnesium deficiency is getting common nowadays due to people getting more and more overworked and doing things like extreme fitness routines, which only tax the adrenal glands to perform overtime in order to cope with exercise, increased stress levels. Plus people with leaky gut issues experience nutrients malabsorption, people with prolonged use of antibiotics too. There are also studies pointing out that excessive drinking can cause a deficiency in magnesium, and my guess is that drinking taxes the adrenals then all other chaos follow thereon….

 

Health Benefits of Magnesium Supplements

Magnesium helps our muscles relax – proven many times, this mineral cures leg cramps. This maybe also why people get relief with taking magnesium for migraines, the relaxing effect counteracts the tension that builds up.

It is also needed for production of glutathione which is a function of the liver, so in consequence our body functions get affected when the liver is affected.

May help address heart palpitations. Many studies have proven this benefit, as well as reviews and feedback from people using this mineral in curing their heart palpitations or arrhythmia.

May lower the risk for Type 2 Diabetes. More and more claims are showing that this mineral indeed can help in the bout of type 2 diabetes for the simple reason that they say it connects to better blood sugar regulation, that is glucose.

It can help bouts of insomnia. Given that this mineral makes one relax, it also affects the nervous system which then calms it – the effect is conducive state for sleeping.

May help Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It is said that people who are chronically ill have depleted levels of magnesium. This makes sense as this mineral is part of the balance between potassium, calcium, sodium which are all important for cellular function.

 

Magnesium Taurate Amazon Reviews

A customer has written on Amazon reviews section that she has been using Magnesium taurate for 4 months now and her episodes of heart palpitations have reduced as well as the intensity of it too.

A customer made a review on August 2014 saying that she is doing a remineralisation program to help her with her muscle at cramps at night plus the magnesium spray – she has been having improved quality of sleep.

A customer by the name of R has written that she has been getting more energy using this supplement along with sleeping better and not experiencing ‘shakes’ anymore. She also reported getting loose stools the first day but it normalised after that. This customer is highly recommending this supplement.

Quercetin supplement

Quercetin Supplement

Quercetin is a very popular antioxidant in the market today. It is rich in healing benefits as a flavonoid or antioxidant with numerous health benefits supported by growing studies in the health arena.

Some vegetables that are rich in this flavonoid are apples and berries.

Quercetin is said to be a cardiovascular support, as per a brand on Amazon store….

 

Health Benefits of Quercetin Supplements

Quercetin is super Anti-inflammatory. This is by far its biggest attractive factor why people use this supplement. It is said to be really potent in cushioning the ravaging effects of free radicals in our bodies such as aging and inflammation issues.

Helps promote younger skin. Again, being a super powerful antioxidant, it is a defence against aging effects of inflammation.

It may help fight against cancer. Diet rich in antioxidants are said to have lower risks of cancer – this is where querceting comes in.

It may help againts heart disease. Studies show that the anti inflammatory healing property of this supplement can help againts heart diseases. Reasons? Simply put the body is totally supported in coping with stress from body trauma and inflammation brought about by different factors that puts the body in constant ‘alert’ therefore more increased stress levels, higher inflammation which leads to the heart overworking and undernourished from its supply of blood and oxygen (well, my own theory, at least).

 

Quercetin Supplement Amazon Reviews

A certain customer by the name of  A.B. on June 2015, wrote that she has been using quercetin supplement along with her mother too who suffers from asthma and finds that this works a lot better than inhalers. But in her case, she has a fish allergy. She always take it with her as even when she passes by a fish counter she experiences breathing difficulties. She takes this if she needs to and in 30 minutes she is fine.

Customer named W.M. has written that he or she has read that this supplement helps with brain fog issues along with cardio related functions too. This customer added that he or she has allergy health problems. Customer remarked that after taking this supplement for one week, there was a great difference about the brain fog issues.

 

milk thistle

 

Milk Thistle Supplement

Milk thistle is the super frontrunner for anything that has to do with liver health. In all these years that I have been reading about health articles online and offline, milk thistle rocks! In fact, I used this way back when my eczema was at its peak, my liver had to have support as per my homeopath therapist. But back then, I never really cared much about this supplement…

 

Health Benefits of Milk Thistle Supplements

May help the liver. This is a very known benefit ot taking milk thistle for many, many years now. Milk thistle is beneficial in cases of liver cirrhosis, hepatitis and other liver related diseases, according to many studies.

It can also help the kidneys. Surprised? Don’t be! My theory is that because when the liver is overworked and in bad shape, the kidneys have to work hard to function in relation to its excretory job for the body, so naturally when the liver is in good health, the kidneys also benefit alongside it.

Milk thistle helps one to have good skin. In this claim, this is my personal opinion. If your liver is very healthy or is in peak shape, it shows in the skin. So if you are taking milk thistle for a time, the results will show, somehow – and this have a knock on effect on the skin – when your liver is very efficient in excreting toxins, then your skin is fine and happy – an alkaline body from the inside has no risk of erupting with all sorts of skin problems due to acidity in pH.

 

Milk Thistle Supplement Amazon Reviews

Customer named A.M. made a review dated February 2014 saying that she is happy with the supplement as it reduced excess heat from her liver, she could tell by the reduced redness of her tongue.

Someone  also said milk thistle is good for constipation health issues!

Customer named A.E. gave this supplement 5 stars as it helped her with digestion health issues.

Adrenal Support Supplement

 

The adrenal glands are often under-attended to, if I may say. Mostly people are concerned about the heart or the skin, among other body organs. But the adrenal glands have really caught my attention since last year – what they are and the impact on the health if they are rundown.

The adrenal glands stabilise a lot of our hormones in the body – collectively, functions of the endocrine glands.

 

Health Benefits of Adrenal Supplements

Adrenal support supplements enable the adrenal glands to cope with the up and down stress nature of people whose health are compromised.

May nourish the adrenal glands in terms of its nutritional support needs so it can function better in times these are underperforming due to bad health of the individual.

Adrenal supplements protect and restore the health of the adrenal glands.

 

Adrenal Support Supplements Amazon Reviews

Customer named JOC gave this supplement a rating of 4 stars. She said that her chiropractor has diagnosed adrenal issues. Then she took this supplement every morning and she has been sleeping great again.

A customer by the name of S wrote on June 2014 that due to thyroid issues he or she has sleeping problems and would wake up in the early hours and stay awake for hours but with this supplement the sleeping pattern is back to normal.

Mr. T.S. made a review in December of 2015 saying that this supplement gave him more energy and needed this for six months until things about his health are stabilised. He had issues about thyroid then his adrenal glands too.

What is Resistant Starch?

 

Resistant starch is fast becoming a health must-have these days – and no other than the Hungry Microbiome is pushing for its awareness so that more and more people can start to experience its health benefits.

Resistant starch is  a different kind of starch that is able to pass through the digestive tract unchanged. This kind of fiber benefits the colon health in great ways. It is said that the key product of the starch fermentation is Butyrate which helps the colon health.

One of the best sources of this is the Green Banana Flour which contains the RS2 type resistant starch.

 

Health Benefits of Resistant Starch

 

Incorporating a resistant starch diet in your daily eating habits could provide the following health benefits:

Prebiotic – feed your microbiome and heal your gut. Green Banana Resistant Starch encourages the growth and activity of microorganisms (e.g. bacteria) that nourish the health of the intestines.

Weight loss – being a good source of fiber, this fills you up. And we know that being a good starch this won’t cause spikes in sugar levels compared to eating complex carbohydrates which are high in glycemic index.

Increase absorption and capacity of antioxidants and minerals – especially calcium which can aide in preventing Osteoporosis

Promote colon health and aide in the prevention of colon cancer

Prevent diabetes and aide in the treatment of diabetes

Food Suggestions

You can use it in your morning breakfasts like muesli.

Banana flour can also be used for baking but as the temperature goes beyond 100 degree celcius, you lose the benefits of the resistant starch.

You can also use the flour in making casseroles, stews and soups.

In my case, I use it to make my gravy for roast meals.

 

(You might experience flatulence using this but it usually normalises after 2 weeks of using it, but most people give up on this so they fail to see the health benefits)
