Way To Have A Healthy Lifestyle With Protocol In 2013

You may have seen a few health and nutrition articles helping you decide on ways to have a healthy lifestyle in the year ahead. We have come up with a couple here on BeRavishing.com.

To coincide with the start of 2013 those clever people at Proto-col have also relaunched the health and beauty brand to help you look and feel great this year. They have examined the ways to have a healthy lifestyle available and have introduced new promotional packs to help you achieve them.

At this time of year especially, we feel down and unhealthy and it is times like this that we need a boost to our nutrition. Proto-col are offering a ‘Health and Wellbeing’ twin pack of the potent Green Magic multivitamin power and a vitamin D supplement.

Green Magic is largely tasteless and can be consumed in a variety of ways. One contributor on Twitter recently revealed she sprinkled the powder on ice cream but the more common method is to mix it in with your morning fruit juice.

Vitamin D is becoming better known now as a promoter of calcium in the body (and so giving healthier bones and teeth) but it is an important element in an effective immune system. In this way it could help us avoid the common cold. Recent research has also shown other benefits from the consumption of this useful vitamin such as reducing the risk of multiple sclerosis, ensuring good brain function and maintaining a healthy body weight.

Ensuring that healthy body weight is also the focus of another of the promotion packs from Proto-col. Green Magic is also included in the ‘2013 Weight Loss Program’ pack, which includes Thermo-Slim and Carb Blocker too.

Thermo-Slim assists the consumption of a healthy diet by using herbal technology to suppress feelings of hunger and boost the metabolism. This ensures you feel more motivated to take exercise and find your ideal size. Thermo-Slim is free of the potentially addictive Ephedrine.

Ephedrine is also excluded from Proto-col’s Carb Blocker. This product is derived from white kidney beans and blocks the enzymes responsible for the digestion of carbohydrates. This reduces the conversion of starch into glucose and so helps control body weight. Carb Blocker is safe enough to be used permanently and is safe for diabetics.

To find these two and other promotional packs in their new, striking packaging, why not visit LookRavishing.com?

Until now, the great products from Proto-col have only been restricted to selected areas of the globe but during 2013 new international distributors will be launched, this ensuring that many more people discover the ways to have a healthy lifestyle offered by Proto-col.

Healthy And Beauty Tip Number 8: Collagen Benefits The Eyes

The lips often draw the eye when cosmetics are correctly used but once you get closer to the person behind the makeup,the eyes become more important. Did you know that collagen benefits your eyes as well as other parts of the body?

We all want clear, healthy-looking eyes (they are,after all, the window to the soul) so it makes sense to look after them as much as possible.

As usual, nutrition is important; eat lots of fruit and vegetables to give the eyes the goodness they require to operate correctly. Regular moderate exercise helps the operations of the human body and studies have shown this also reduces the risk of macular degeneration, a particular problem affecting the eyes.

Avoid smoking or smoky atmospheres or any other airborne pollution as the eyes have little defence against these. Protect the eyes whenever necessary by using goggles where foreign bodies could fly up (or when welding) or use sunglasses in strong light.

Have you ever had a photograph taken of the inside of your eyes when at the opticians? By doing this, many diseases affecting the rest of the body can be identified. This indicates how the eyes are closely connected to the rest of us.

Be careful when applying makeup as chemicals from cosmetics can irritate the eyes. Mineral makeup powder is less likely to affect the eyes but it is better to be safe than sorry.

Collagen benefits the eyes by making them firm but strong by reinforcing the tissues therein so you might consider a course of collagen capsules with your daily multivitamins.

Many of us spend money making our eyes look good on the outside but there is no substitute for healthy, clear eyes and this is only achieved by nutrition, protection and leading a healthy lifestyle.

Tips For Fake Tanning: Sunless Tanning Supplements

There has recently been some adverse publicity regarding the use of spray sunless tan lotions(perhaps the sunbed manufacturers getting their revenge, who knows?), however the problems have arisen in the US where the regulations are less strict than here in Europe.

Nonetheless, although no real studies show a problem with the use of spray sunless tan lotions, it is probably wise for anyone with doubts to consult a doctor before beginning a course ofsunless tan lotions, particularly sprays and especially if you are pregnant.

If you want to be particularly safe, then it would be best to protect the eyes, lips and nostrils whilst spraying, although this tends to be more relevant to commercial spray tanning booths rather than home aerosol sprays. As ever, common sense should prevail.

If the idea of a tanning spray turns you off then one of the best tips for fake tanning may be to use one of the quality natural tanning supplements available. These use natural nutrients to boost the body’s tanning abilities.

There are supplements already available that enhance the colour of your skin using natural carotenoids and vitamin E without exposing yourself to the sun. However if you do go out into the sun, a good sun supplement will enhance the tanning effect. In any case this product should provide useful amino acids for the body.

Good natural sun supplements encourage the body’s tanning in the sun (remember a high level of sun cream is still necessary). If you do not spend time in the sun then they should simply work as an effective multi-vitamin. This is useful for people with fairer skin as it speeds up the tanning process – but remember it does not prevent damage to the skin caused by excess exposure.

Many teenagers suffer from bad skin and struggle to make it look good again. One of the most important healthy skin tips for them is to keep their nutrition at its best.

Particularly useful for preventing acne and other skin ailments suffered in adolescence are zinc and vitamin A, but a good diet backed up by a course of quality nutritional supplements will ensure optimum skin health. Plus lots of sleep and water of course – but that is something many teenagers forget!

Protocol’s Vita Balance multivitamin tablets provide most of the needed nutrition and can be found at LookRavishing.com.

Tips To Beautiful Skin: Nourishment For Your Skin

The human body needs nutrition to operate correctly. For this reason many of us use nutritional health supplements for optimum health and healthy eating is also essential. The skin care industry is booming with products that claim to provide all the nutrients your skin needs to look glowing and healthy.

So one of the most important healthy skin tips has to be: provide the right vitamins and minerals your skin needs to look good.

But what does our skin need to look and be healthy?

Antioxidants are very useful for a good complexion. These reduce the damage caused by rogue molecules called ‘free-radicals’ that damage skin cells and speed up the ageing process.

Antioxidants are found in vitamins A, C, and E as well as in beta-carotene. These are widely found in fruit and vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, apples, bananas and blueberries. Other sources of these useful vitamins also include chicken, eggs, wheat germ and even oysters.

Omega 3 is also useful to your skin. These fatty acids are good for us in that they help the skin stay strong and so repel day-to-day pollutants and toxins.

Foods that are rich in Omega 3 included good quality fish, eggs and walnuts.

The key, as always, is to have a healthy, balanced diet supplemented by a good natural diet supplement and you should end up with a healthy, glowing skin that will truly make you look ravishing.

Nutritional Health Supplements: The Cold Season

This time of year can be very beautiful with the golds and reds of the trees but it is also the season when we need to be taking our nutritional health supplements to stave off the inevitable colds that seem to be around now.

But when we take these nutritional health supplements, what vitamins and minerals are best this time of year?

As always, nutritional health supplements should be taken as part of a healthier lifestyle to be most effective so it is better to ensure your life generally involves healthy options.

Your diet should always be balanced and healthy no matter what the time of year. Eat enough, but not too much, of the right foods, including those rich in vitamin C, which is the vitamin most used to combat the common cold. This can be found in such foods as citrus fruit, red and blue berries and green vegetables but a good diet should always have a good spread of fruit and vegetables in any case.

Ensure you get plenty of rest and sleep and avoid stimulants such as coffee, caffeine rich or sugary drinks and alcohol as these will simply increase your stress level. Moderate exercise taken on a daily basis will make you feel good and boost your immune system.

Drink lots of water to hydrate your body and ensure the best operation of your bodily functions. Experts vary as to how much water is best but something around eight glasses of water each day seems to be about right.

It is a sad fact of life that much of the food we eat does not contain the goodness it might have done in previous years: for this reason it is a good idea to include a daily multivitamin natural diet supplement. You can then be confident you are doing all you need to stay healthy.

A substance now available as a natural diet supplement and gaining popularity as a means of boosting the immune system is colostrum. This is obtained from the mammary glands of animals, often cows, and is rich in antibodies the body uses to combat various toxins, bacteria and viruses.

In the run up to Christmas a stinking cold can be a real annoyance but in reality we can reduce the chances of contracting one.

The website LookRavishing.com has details of quality nutritional health supplements to help you avoid the bugs and illnesses common this time of year.

Natural Diet Supplement: Nutrition For Toddlers

It is always important to ensure we all have the right nutrition – whether from our diets or from nutritional health supplements – but it is all too easy to forget that one of the most important times to ensure the body is getting the nutrients it needs is when we are growing.

One of the most difficult times a parent can have with their children is when they are at the toddler stage. Interestingly toddlers need less food than they did as babies but nutrition is still very important. Get it right now and your offspring will start off on a healthy life and will have reduced health problems in the future.

Yes, too often the wrong foods are given to children at this stage and parents run the risk of starting a cycle that leads to obesity. Smart parents need to respond to their own instincts rather than implementing a strict and unattractive regime of diet and nutritional health supplements.

Get a youngster enjoying fruit and vegetable now and you will have fewer problems when they get to the more rebellious stages. Make the foods fun and brightly coloured and your child will accept them more readily; carrots and broccoli, for example, are brightly coloured so will attract the eye of a toddler. Fruit is easy as you can combine a variety of colours in a meal.

As always, a balanced diet is the key so there needs to be a balance of fruit, vegetables, dairy products (yoghurt, milk and cheese – remember that calcium!) and some lean meat or beans.

To be completely sure you are giving your child the correct level of goodness and nutrition, it makes good sense to provide a good natural diet supplement every day too.

It is clear one of the best things you can do for young children is to get them used to the right nutrition, from food and a good natural diet supplement.

For more on nutrition for toddlers, read this useful article on the Arlington Patch website.

Collagen Benefits: The Wide Benefits Of Supplementation

 

 

It seems to be generally accepted that collagen benefits the youthful look of our skin and it is the loss of collagen that promotes the production of winkles and sagging. This is of course accelerated by such lifestyle choices as smoking or over exposure to the suns rays.

However it must be remembered that collagen is the most common protein found in the human body and therefore has significant effects on other parts.

Most notably one of the other collagen benefits is on the connective tissues such as ligaments and cartilage. The gradual level of collagen loss with age contributes to a loss of quality and strength in the hair and nails as well as the increase in such difficult conditions as arthritis and osteoporosis.

Arthritis is the result of deterioration of the cartilage usually coating the ends of bones to prevent them grating against one another and wearing the ends. Remember a major component of cartilage is collagen and it is the reduction of collagen that contributes to this breakdown.

Traditional treatment for arthritis tends to concentrate on anti-inflammatory products but these really attack the symptoms of the condition (the swelling resulting from the joint problem) rather than repairing the deterioration and indeed there may be some negative side effects not properly understood yet.

Osteoporosis is the reduction in bone density most often following menopause. There is a reduction in levels of calcium and collagen leading to brittle bones that sadly break too easily. The intake of calcium in younger life can help reduce the impact this condition can have.

There is some research and anecdotal evidence that indicates a supplement containing collagen benefits sufferers of the above conditions. In any case there is no evidence that the use of such a natural diet supplement has any side effects or that you can overdose (after all, it is a substance already important to the body).

Interestingly, there has also been some recent research from the University of Texas that shows collagen injections have a beneficial effect on men suffering from unitary incontinence. Is this another way a natural diet supplement containing collagen benefits the body? Who knows?

Take a look at the collagen capsules from Proto-col at LookRavishing.com and buy three bottles for the price of two.

Natural Diet Supplement: Osteo+ From Proto-col

 

 

More and more people are suffering problems with their joints and so there is a demand for a natural diet supplement that can alleviate their suffering.

Proto-col have recently launched such a product.

Osteo+ contains Chrondroitin, Glucosamine, Hyaluronic Acid and Hydrolysed Collagen and is intended to reduce the pain in arthritic joints. The inclusion of MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) and vitamin C ensures the key ingredients find their way to the joints that need them.

Chrondrotin as used in this natural diet supplement occurs naturally in the body and is a key component of the cartilage found in our joints. Chrondrotin has two main roles: it helps keep the cartilage healthy by absorbing water into the tissue and some evidence shows it also combats enzymes attacking the cartilage which would otherwise break the tissue down.

Bearing in mind that arthritis is the wearing away and deterioration of the cartilage cushioning the end of the bone and you can see how a supplement containing both collagen and Chrondrotin can help combat the condition.

Glucosamine, a derivative of glucose, is also found naturally in cartilage and is transformed into glycosaminoglycan, a molecule that repairs damage to the cartilage and other tissues. Interestingly, the production of Glucosamine slows with age.

The new Osteo+ natural diet supplement can be found at LookRavishing.com.
