Less research has been done on herb use during pregnancy than on vitamins or minerals, but it is helpful to recall that herbs have been in use for hundreds and even thousands of years (long before isolated vitamins, minerals or prescription pharmaceutical...
In general, herbs are very safe, but should not be taken with prescription drugs without the supervision of a healthcare provider. Recall that herbs have been used for supporting health for literally thousands of years. Remember, however, that herbs are c...
Most herbs, when used according to longstanding herbal traditions, are not only effective but safe. Herbs have been used in the treatment and support of human health for thousands of years. During that time much has been learned about what herbs can do, h...
Here is a link to the NCAA banned substances for 2006-2007. JayLab, Pro products are in compliance and OK to take for college athletes. http://www1.ncaa.org/membership/ed_outreach/health-safety/drug_testing/banned_drug_classes.pdf
As is true with vitamins, most minerals are safe (and even required) during pregnancy. Minerals have a relatively narrower safety margin than do vitamins, but still significantly broader than do almost all pharmaceutical drugs. Unless research has specifi...
While the levels of most vitamins and minerals recommended by your healthcare practitioner is considered safe, remember that too much of anything can be potentially harmful. Even such life-sustaining things as water and sunlight have an upper limit of saf...
Most vitamins are safe during pregnancy; in fact that is precisely the time when they are most needed! Not only must your diet support the mother's health and vitality, but that of her developing baby as well. A deficiency of certain nutrients (such as vi...
Generally Yes, in the ranges that most vitamins are available as supplements. Vitamins are divided into two categories: fat soluble and water soluble. The water soluble vitamins (B vitamins and vitamin C) cannot be stored by the body, so they are generall...
Sugar in itself does not contribute to the development of diabetes. However, it does aggravate the condition once it exists. People who have diabetes have trouble keeping down their blood sugar levels, so eating products that contain a lot of sugar makes ...
Nutrition and physical activity can help reduce fatigue. Patients and survivors have fatigue for a number of different reasons. Some fatigue may occur because they do not eat enough or do not exercise enough. Starting slowly with an exercise program, ev...
Yes, you can use the 55%/20%/25% meal plans for your athletes and then just substitute a post recovery shake instead of the meal replacement shake. Of course the ProGrade Varsity shake will be after workouts or practices and not necessarily at lunch like ...
An athlete may need slightly more protein during the initial stages of training or competition, but that need is not very great. Since most Americans already consume more than enough protein, chances are the increased need has already been met by a normal...
Genetics play a part in a person's metabolic rate and thyroid function which both impact on the body's ability to burn fat efficiently. However, having overweight parents does not mean you are destined to a lifetime of obesity and disease. This just means...
Your body needs approximately 3-5 times more potassium than sodium. However, most Americans ingest approximately 3-5 times more sodium than potassium because of the typical diet of highly processed, high-sodium, fast foods. Sodium causes retention of flui...
Absolutely. In fact, the "fat-free" misconception is exactly the reason why over half of Americans today are overweight, and 1 in 5 are obese. Over the last few years, we have been led to believe that it's just fat that makes you fat, and therefore that h...
It is difficult to tell quality simply by looking at a tablet. Many factors (most of which are hidden to the naked eye) go into a high quality nutritional supplement, but one of the three main variables is quality of the science behind the product: the hu...
This is a very important question. Many people have tried herbal products only to be disappointed when they don't work as hoped. A large part of this must be laid at the feet of manufacturers hoping to profit from the explosion of interest in herbs withou...
Although its exact frequency isn't known, the condition is widespread among the adult population in developed nations, and increases in frequency with age. For example, a study in the United States found that about 7% of adults aged 20-29 years had metabo...
When people are overweight or obese, they are more likely to develop health problems such as the following:Hypertension Dyslipidemia (for example, high total cholesterol or high levels of triglycerides)Type 2 diabetes, Coronary heart disease, Stroke, Gall...
There are at least two ways of approaching the question 'how nutritious is a particular diet?' First, it can be considered in terms of the 'completeness' of the diet (that is, does it provide all known essential nutrients in at least the minimum recommend...
The products are designed for healthy individuals.  If you have diabetes or other diseases you should always check with your physician to make sure they are safe for you and don't interfere with any other medications.
Your body is trying to tell you something. All you have to do is look at what you ate for lunch that caused you to feel tired. Was your lunch high in carbohydrates: bread, pasta, rice, fruit, rice cakes, sweets, cake, or other processed carbohydrates? Was...
It's great that you are so diligent with your exercise. Even though you are no longer losing weight, you are toning your muscles and strengthening your heart. Now that your weight loss has slowed down, try increasing the intensity of your exercise by walk...
The word 'vegetarian' is not well-defined. It includes people with a wide range of attitudes and eating behaviors with respect to foods of animal origin. Vegetarians all base their diets on foods of plant origin, but there are different levels of vegetari...
The nutritional value of a food's protein is determined by the mix of amino acids that it contains. Amino acids are the 'building blocks' of protein. Only some amino acids are essential in the adult human diet - that is, they must be obtained from food be...
There are a couple of important and valuable concepts that high protein diets offer: Avoid simple carbohydrates, such as white flour found in white bread and pasta, and refined sugars found in cakes and cookies. Protein is important for feeling satiated (...
Because the fat takes longer to digest that protein or carbohydrate, nutritionists used to think it was more satisfying. Recent studies show that, overall, carbohydrate satiates better than fat. Preliminary studies suggest that people who have trouble reg...
You gained weight during your pregnancy for a reason -- to nourish yourself and your baby. While breastfeeding, your body needs to use some of that extra fat to produce milk. It is especially important for you to get enough nutrients while breastfeeding b...
As you watch your fat intake, it's critical to remember that fat-free doesn't mean calorie free. For instance, an ounce of jelly beans (about 10) has only 0.1 grams of fat. But at a total of 104 calories, it hardly makes for a low calorie alternative. Mak...
Cholesterol is only found in animal products, and while animal foods are the primary source of fats in the diet they are not the only source. Saturated fats are also present in products made with coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and palm oil, all of which co...
Each person is unique, so each person's nutritional needs would also be unique to them. This means to avoid highly processed foods (candies, snack foods, convenience foods), or foods high in refined sugar or flour, as these tend to have low levels of impo...
A typical higher protein diet does not cause any kidney problems for those with healthy kidneys. Research is always ongoing, but at this point there is no solid research showing damaging effects to healthy kidneys as a result of consuming higher protein i...
It is a common misconception that if you eat a well-balanced diet there is no need for supplements. This may have been true 10,000 years ago when the water supply was pure, the air was crystal clear, the soil was unspoiled by toxic fertilizers, and the fo...
This is a misguided practice which takes little account of how the body, and the digestive processes, work. Overnight, the body's blood glucose level drops because you are in a 'fasting' state. The first meal (literally 'breakfast') should provide plenty ...
This belief dates back at least 100 years and its popularity was recently revived with various publications. In fact, the human digestive system is magnificently designed to cope with an 'omnivorous' diet. That is, we have the enzymes and acidic condition...
While meat is a good source of protein, egg whites, cheese and seafood also contain this nutrient. Protein is present in plant foods, too, although in incomplete form meaning they are missing one or more essential amino acids. However, if you pair legumes...
Prograde Workout is completely safe for children. It contains only nutrients that you find in every day foods so instead of eating 3-4 different foods to get the same nutrient content you can receive it in one drink. Also, it is ideal for kids on the go ...
A true physical addiction stimulates an increasing need for the "drug," which, if halted abruptly, will bring on withdrawal symptoms. For sugarholics, dependency is all in the mind.
It is safe for children but we do not recommend the VGF25+ to anyone 18 and younger.
1. Increase activity level. The 'diabetes epidemic' that is sweeping the Western world, and is increasingly affecting affluent groups in developing nations, parallels the obesity epidemic that began a decade or so earlier. Although being obese is the sing...
There is a substantial body of evidence supporting the belief that vegetarians in Western countries experience significantly less cancer, less heart disease, fewer strokes, and generally live longer than omnivores. However, it is also true that people who...
Antioxidants are a group of chemical compounds that protect against free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules produced naturally, or induced by exposure to things like radiation, certain chemical pollutants, or other sources. When free ra...
Sugar alcohols are carbohydrate derivatives of sugar, which are commonly used to sweeten products like chewing gum, and more recently, food bars. Popular sugar alcohols include: glycerol, maltitol, xylitol, sorbitol, and mannitol. Sugar alcohols do not ha...
Each of the components of metabolic syndrome acts to significantly increase the risk of developing one or more diseases. As examples, excess abdominal fat is associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease; hypertension is the most imp...
First and foremost, if you are undergoing treatment for any of the components of metabolic syndrome (or for the actual diseases associated with it, such as diabetes or heart disease) it is essential that you take the advice of your professional health car...
You need a balance of the 3 macronutrients that suit your body. The key is to get the right balance of the three macronutrients, for your body. Listen to your body after each meal. How does it feel? If you are sluggish, lacking concentration, hungry, or c...
Minerals have very many important functions. Iron is required for the manufacture of the chemical hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in the blood to all the cells of the body. Calcium is necessary for strong bones, and for transmission of messages within ce...
In order to accomplish all of the thousands of day-to-day functions of your body, the food you eat every day must be converted into energy and raw materials (building blocks for muscles, bones, ligaments enzymes, hormones, and so on). To do all this, vita...
Metabolic syndrome is a condition in which a group of risk factors for cardiovascular disease (heart disease and stroke) and type 2 diabetes occur together. Although it doesn't have a universally accepted definition, most health professionals would includ...
As part of healthy growth and development, children's body weight and shape are continually changing. Since children grow and develop at different rates, it is difficult to pinpoint a particular healthy weight for children. There are growth charts for c...
Liposuction, also called "lipoplasty" or "suction lipectomy," is a medical procedure in which a surgeon removes fat deposits from the body by first dissolving the fat, then withdrawing it from under the skin. Liposuction is not a substitute for diet and e...
Soy protein is a vegetarian protein made from soy flour or soybeans. This protein has been filtered to separate it from much of the carbohydrates and fats that usually accompany it. Soy is high in calcium, iron, and isoflavones which help fight off cancer...
The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of foods on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Glucose is given a relative number of 100 to provide a baseline to which all others can be compared. For ex...
Results of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey for 1999-2002 indicate that an estimated 16 percent of children and adolescents ages 6-19 years are overweight. For children, overweight is defined as a body mass index (BMI) at or above the ...
Results of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey for 1999-2002 indicate that the following percentages of U.S. adults are overweight or obese:An estimated 30 percent of U.S. adults aged 20 years and older - over 60 million people - are obes...
If you work out aerobically, like taking a brisk walk for one hour each day, you will lose weight all over your body. This is actually more effective than trying to focus your workout on one isolated "problem" area, like the tire around your middle or you...
First, remember that as a society, our dietary habits have changed over the past couple of generations. A healthy diet consists of plenty of fruits and vegetables and whole grains. Recent studies indicate that the majority of meals in the US are eaten in ...
The reasons for becoming a vegetarian are many and varied. Many people are vegetarians as a result of religious beliefs. In addition, semi vegetarians usually believe that red meat is harmful to health, particularly--but not exclusively--to heart health. ...
It is important to understand the differences in carbohydrates, since sugar alcohols and other low glycemic ingredients have a minimal effect on blood sugar levels.
The simplest answer is because most people eat a poor diet. Studies show that the average diet in the US consists of too much fat, too much sugar, not enough fiber and not enough fresh fruits and vegetables. We are eating plenty of calories, but they are ...
Research and scientists have proven that recovery of muscle nutrient stores can be enhanced by consuming a specified mixture of carbohydrates and proteins. Significant glycogen (carbohydrate) storage greatly reduces the recovery time from exercise. Consum...
Despite repeated attempts, carefully controlled studies have not been able to demonstrate that vitamin C megadoses have any significant effect either in preventing or curing the common cold. While some studies have reported that the vitamin has a slight e...
