Dulse and Kelp Seaweeds for Health

Kombu/Kelp
Kelp is
also known as “wild atlantic kombu”. The main benefit of this
sea vegetable is its rich content of minerals particularly iodine. Kelp is a natural source of this essential thyroid metabolism
regulating mineral.  Kelp is also rich in the anti
oxidant compound fucoxanthin. Fucoxanthin assists the body with fat
metabolism, thus it may aid with weight loss.

Kelp contains a wide variety of vitamins and trace minerals, making it one of the most nutrient dense and useful foods to consume. Kelp contains the vitamins A, B, C and D as well as the harder to get Vitamins E and K. Kelp is an excellent source for trace minerals and iodine, it also supplies the body with protiens and fiber. There are special compounds in Kelp which help it to cleanse radioactive and heavy metal particles from the body and blood.

Dulse
One
of my personal favorites of the sea vegetable varieties is Dulse. Like
nori, dulse can be eaten straight out of the package making a quick
healthy snack.  It is exceptionally tasty and contains many of the same
benefits as other seaweeds: rich in minerals, protein dense, good source
of iodine, healing and cleansing aliginate compounds.  Its deep red
color and soft texture make it a great addition to soups and salads.

Dulse is hand-harvested from remote Gulf of Maine bays at the peak
of nutrition and taste (early summer to early fall.) All of the Dulse
products from Maine Coast Sea Vegetables undergo annual OCIA organic inspection for handling and
harvesting, as well as voluntary testing for heavy metal, chemical and
microbiological contaminants.

Dulse is rich in the following nutrients: Alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, calcium, chromium, cobalt, iodine, iron,
lutein, manganese, magnesium, niacin, phosphorous, potassium,
riboflavin, selenium, silicon, sodium, vitamin C, zeaxanthin, and
zinc.

Additional
benefits of consuming sea vegetables is their ability to bind to heavy
metals and radio active particles and safely help your body remove
them. 
  It is safe to say that nearly everyone can benefit from
adding these miracles of the sea to their diet.  To make that easier for
our customers we are running a sale on all Maine Coast Sea Vegetables, now is a good time to stock up and save.

Positive Health Benefits of Modifilan Brown Seaweed Extract

                                  Fucoxanthin – Brown Seaweed Extract

Interest in the
compound Fucoxanthin has sky rocketed thanks to Dr. Oz. This leads me to want to share a bit more about this amazing substance. Fucoxanthin is a seaweed compound and we are big proponents of consuming
seaweed, a natural wild vegetable from the ocean. One reason we like
wild foods is because they offer a richer and wider nutritional content
than farmed foods.

Modifilan Brown Seaweed Extract is Rich in Nutrients
Modifilan Brown Seaweed contain an array of complex nutrients and
minerals not found nowhere else. Particularly interesting are the
polysaccaride compounds and antioxidants in brown seaweed. Dr. Oz show has promoted a report which demonstrates the promise of the
antioxidant, fucoxanthin.  Fucoxanthin is a caroteniod compound found in Modifilan Brown Seaweed

Cellular Metabolism: Fucoxanthin – The “Fat Burning” Component
While simple Brown Seaweed contains fucoxanthin, this substance it is not present in high enough quantities
to make a difference. Researchers recommend using it in supplement form
where Fucoxanthi is concentrated to levels that make it
useful as a fat burner. This amazing substance increases cellular
metabolism even while the body is inactive. This in turn also helps to
normalize cholesterol levels in the body. Taking Modifilan Brown
Seaweed extract in addition to a healthy diet can help you get over the
hump and headed to the proper weight and cholesterol level for your
body.

One of the main actions of Fucoxanthin is to increase the synthesis of a
key protein involved in fat metabolism. This then helps the body burn
extra fat.



Heavy Metal Cleansing
In a previous blog post I
talked about the ability of seaweed to cleanse heavy metals from the
body.  Modifilan being a concentrated supplement greatly assists in the
removal of heavy metals from the body.  Our environmental conditions
today means that we are exposed to heavy metals, of these metals mercury
is common contaminant we must deal with.  In studies researchers have
found that Modifilan binds to and removes this toxic heavy metal from
the body without incident.


Brown Seaweed Extract the Heart and More Research
Researchers have also found that Brown Seaweed extract is useful for the heart, it is cardio protective.
And it has certain anti-inflammatory properties that benefit the gastro
intestinal tract. As well as protecting the thyroid gland and causing
certain types of cancer cells to self destruct.

Final Thoughts
Along
with its belly fat burning properties, Brown Seaweed extract has a
many positive health benefits. Whether using it for weight loss or to
cleanse the body this is a powerful supplement that will help you on
your path toward total body well being.

Licorice Root named “Medicinal Plant of 2012”

We have just learned that licorice root has been named “Medicinal Plant of 2012″*

This article is not intended to provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

How interesting, I hardly knew when the nominations were? Licorice is certainly an interesting plant. It is widely known as a flavoring for “Licorice” the black chewy candy. Before its fame in the land of sweets it was and still is used widely in Chinese medicine.

And this year it got another boost from Dr. Oz. On his show he told everyone how licorice can aid weight loss, when used in conjunction with Modifilan brown seaweed extract. If you are interested in learning more about Modifilan there are 3 other posts on this blog about Modifilan. Just search for them. 

Back to the star Licorice. I recently came across a study that has found licorice compounds to be beneficial for people with diabetes. This is completely new research, really new research and we will be seeing more about this as it develops. So far this is what we know. Certain molecules found in licorice reduce blood sugar and possess anti-inflammatory properties. The molecules of interest are known as amorfrutins. And, they seem to reduce glucose levels which in turn prevents insulin resistance. It is important to note that the concentration of amorfrutins in licorice is to low to be effective.  So researchers are looking to concentrate amorfrutins and study it on humans. So far tests have only been done on mice. *This research was carried out by the Max Plank Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin, Germany.
  

Licorice and Oral Health 

Recent research has found that two licorice compounds, licoricidin and
licorisoflavan A, are effective antibacterial substances.
These substances killed two of the major bacteria responsible for dental
cavities and two of the bacteria that promote gum disease. One of the
compounds — licoricidin — also killed a third gum disease bacterium.
The
researchers say that these substances could treat or even prevent
oral infections. This is an excerpt from a story published by the ACS.
It should be noted that licorice is not beneficial for people with high blood pressure and it can have undesirable effects and interactions
with prescription drugs.

Healthy Balanced Dieting Tips

Summer is around the corner and the temperatures have been heating up across the country, so now is a great time to tell you about metabolic stimulators and how they can be used to safely help you achieve the weight that is perfect for you. Personally I am not into diet pills, fads, silver bullets and promises because they don’t work in giving you the long range benefits you truly desire. So I will not waste my time and if you are looking for a quick fix don’t continue reading. But, if you are truly interested in health read on because what I have to share with you will be educational, informative and entertaining.

We all think we need to look better, it is a chronic condition, thinking we are not ok just the way we are. I want to start this post re-affirming the essential truth that you are perfect. This completely goes against all the marketing strategies that I’ve learned and is taught. Basically I should be telling you that you are in a state of lack, that a piece of you is missing and if you buy these products you will find the fulfillment that you are looking for. Truth is that is a whopping, huge big fat lie if there ever was one but it sells products and leaves you feeling chronically dissatisfied with yourself. Because the fact is nothing outside of you can ever bring you real true fulfillment, you may feel good for a while but that fades quickly.

If you just remember this you will not fall victim to such shenanigans.

Because the nature of this blog is about health products we will now take an exploration of such products and I will also add some lifestyle suggestions in as well. Because adjusting your lifestyle will lead to results taking a foothold. 

Sugar Balance

In terms of lifestyle adjustments you need to get serious about addressing your sugar intake, this is a fact that cannot be overlooked. There are NO two ways around this, sober up to this fact and you will  start to see the health results you dream of. Apologies for the buzz kill but you need to hear this and take it in as a fact. You need to greatly reduce your sugar consumption and if possible totally eliminate it from your diet. Don’t take my advice try it out for a two weeks and see how great you feel. This will have a positive impact on your hormones. When you are off the blood sugar Yo Yo ride your energy level will normalize and your stress hormones will drop, you will love it I guaranteed. I understand this can be difficult to hear and difficult to do but persevere and you will be many steps ahead in the game of health. To learn more about this visit the blog Agave, Stevia and The Glycemic Index.

Metabolics

There are some substances out there called metabolic stimulators, which as the name suggestions, stimulate metabolism. These products could give you the extra edge you need to carry you through to your weight loss goals. These are NOT a substitute for true changes in you diet and level of physical activity, these are adjuncts which will support the process of weight loss. Two very common and well know metabolic stimulators are Yerba Mate and Brown Seaweed Extract.

Yerba Mate

I like Yerba Mate and I think you will as well, it is a clean tasting herbal tea which contains caffeine, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins. It is a filling, stimulating and nourishing beverage from South America. Yerba Mate is a well known appetite suppressant as well as metabolic stimulator. Consider adding Yerba Mate to your diet, drink it in the mornings or afternoon, you will soon see why it is a preferred healthy stimulant compared to coffee. Yerba Mate has been studied for its benefit on fat metabolism and studies indicate it has a positive effect on cholesterol levels, reducing LDL and increasing HDL.* Yerba Mate has a mild taste similar to green tea and bit more herbaceous, it is pleasant to drink and satisfying cold as well as hot. 

Brown Seaweed Extract and Licorice

Brown Seaweed Extract has been touted a silver bullet with some sources claiming it will reduce your belly fat. Well there is a compound in Brown Seaweed Extract that increase fat metabolism and reduce glucose levels in the blood, two good ways to help you loose weight. That substance is called fucoxanthin.  

Reports also indicate that when combined with licorice root extract, the weight loss properties of brown seaweed is greatly enhanced and we’ve sourced a real potent extract from a very ethical company. Licorice root has been used since ancient times, across many cultures as
food and as medicine. In Chinese medicine, Licorice is an ingredient in
nearly all herbal formulas for the traditional purpose of “harmonizing”
the separate herbs involved. This important tonic herb is often called
“the grandfather of herbs.”

To just talk about this one compound would not be doing this amazing product justice. Modifilan Brown Seaweed Extract is a true gift from the sea and with this gift comes a huge number of minerals. Actually 72 trace minerals that are needed for proper functioning and health of the body. Chief among them is iodine which is extremely important to the regulation of the thyroid, the master gland which is in charge of metabolism and weight management. The abundance of organic, ionic iodine found in this Brown Seaweed Extract enhance the function of the endocrine system. And, results are that your metabolism functions better and your body uses calories more efficiently. You need to use this product for a few weeks to a few months to gain the maximum health benefits. 

Dietary Adjustments

Now lets get back to reality, you need to make significant dietary changes to achieve the health and weight loss goals you are after. I am not going to tell you what to eat but you need to know that if you continue to eat what you eat now do not expect your weight or health to change. In order to change You need to change, you need to do a wholesale change. 

My suggestion in general is to increase you consumption of protein, especially in the mornings. Skip the sugary breakfast, the grains, the cereal, pancakes, waffles etc . . . Try eating more veggies in the morning I know this is not very American but you just might like it. Try some miso soup with veggies and two eggs add a few flax crackers and you will be off to a good start. 

If you are in a rush and need to make something easy to take on the go we have the perfect protein supplement for you. It is called Lean Body Whey Protein, nice name wouldn’t you say? This company makes some real ethical products and this one is up there with the rest.

Emotional Eating 

Yup this the big one I have been holding off on mentioning, food has a major emotional connection and we often overeat due to emotions and stress rather than a dietary need. And, them we punish ourselves for overeating and it can become a viscous cycle. Sugar, sweets and junk foods have a strong emotional attraction and freeing yourself from the grips will be a boon to your body as well as your soul. Emotions are what fuel us, the power contained in emotions cannot be underestimated and not being run by our emotions will help us immensely. 
Besides writing this blog and sharing what I know about health and nutrition, I, Mark D’Aquila am also a flower essence therapist. Meaning I help people find greater levels of emotional freedom and expression through the use of flower essences.  Flower essences are tools that help us manage our emotions and develop a healthy relationship with them. And, they can help you with emotional eating, the formula I am about to tell you about will support you in gaining the upper hand on emotional eating. Being that flower essences are one of my specialty I run a website dedicated entirely to Bach Flower Remedies and at the end of this post I will tell you how you can get this formula.

The Emotional Eating Support Formula:

This formula contains the following four flower essences.
Cherry Plum
Crab Apple
Chestnut Bud
Pine
Walnut 
This combination has been specially designed to address the range of emotions related to emotional eating. When used on a regular basis it will help you to curb this pattern and re-gain a healthy relationship to food. 

To learn more about this formula visit www.essencealchemy.com.


Where there you have it folks, we’ve managed to cover a lot of angles to the whole weight loss challenge. As a wholistic health practitioner I feet it was vital to address the part of eating that is tied to our  emotions because emotions drive our behavior. 

Enjoy your summer,

Using Brown Seaweed Extract

Brown seaweed extract is truly a dynamic product, a sampling of the reports indicates that people who use brown seaweed extract experience numerous benefits.Improves the Effects of Diet and Exercise:

The title of this section says it all, “Improves the effects of diet and exercise”. This doesn’t take the place of diet and exercise. The report on brown seaweed has been a mixed bag; mostly positive with the most positive results coming when it is combined with diet and exercise. So if you are looking to lose a little weight and want positive results, combine brown seaweed with diet and exercise.

Brown seaweed extract was popularized as a weight loss product by Dr. Oz, he was and you can use this to regain your perfect healthy weight. It has been indicated that this supplement helps by increasing fat metabolism, which can help to shed unwanted pounds. We have also heard reports of brown seaweed help to quell the appetite. This has helped people maintain healthy eating habits, the sense of being full faster has stopped them from over indulging. And anecdotal reports suggest people using brown seaweed extract notice an increase in energy and a more balanced energy throughout the day.

Why Can’t I Just Eat Seaweed?
Well, you can and we certainly do encourage that but there is a difference between eating seaweed and using brown seaweed extract. The treasured elements in brown seaweeds, are enhanced through a special cold-temperature extraction technology. Which keeps intact the delicate molecular structure of brown seaweed. And MODIFILAN is not just another dry seaweed product – it is highly concentrated product. FORTY pounds of raw seaweed is needed to make ONE pound of MODIFILAN. So why you can eat seaweed you won’t be getting the benefits that are reported by those who use brown seaweed extract.

Reports suggest that the effects of Modilfilan brown seaweed are enhanced when used in conjunction with licorice extract. This may be due to the fact that licorice can increase metabolism, when combined they seem to work synergisticaly to support healthy weight. So as you begin to improve your diet and exercise regularly you may beginning seeing added weight loss particularly in the mid section, when using brown seaweed and licorice root extract. Reports suggest that it will take 1-2 weeks to notice the benefits of these herb, depending on your routine.

What else does MODIFILAN do?
– Boosts the immune system.
– Can help protect against thyroid cancer and other cancers.
– Helps to decrease high blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
– Detoxifies the body from heavy metals, radioactive elements, free radicals and toxins.
– Helps those who are overweight by improving the function of the gastro-intestinal tract.
– Improves the structure of hair and nails and help them to grow.
– Help to detoxify smokers from strontium and cadmium.



Heavy Metal Toxicity and Immune Health
Brown seaweed is not just good for losing belly fat, in fact this is a side benefit to its main application, which is its ability to detoxify the body. Aliginate compounds in concentrated brown seaweed such as Modifilan bind to toxic metals and radiation. The body is then better able to effectively deal with these toxic compounds and expel them from the bodies. Below you will find a breakdown of the major compounds in Modifilian and their purpose.

Detail Breakdown of Brown Seaweed

*Organic Iodine feeds the Thyroid Gland, which controls metabolism and promotes maturation of the nervous system. Iodine is important for thyroid disorders, wherever underactive or overactive.

*Alginate is a natural absorbent of radioactive elements, heavy metals and free radicals. It has the unique ability of binding heavy metals and radioactive elements to its own molecules. As the Alginate cannot be broken down by the bile or saliva and cannot be absorbed by the body, it is secreted from the body together with the heavy metals and radioactive substances.

*Fucoidan causes certain types of rapidly growing cancer cells to self-destruct. Promoting apoptosis (self-destruction of cancer cells), Fucoidan helps to naturally eliminate harmful cells from organism.

*Laminarin is a polysaccharide helpful in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

Summary
Modifilian brown seaweed extract is a unique supplement that provides a wide range of benefits and when used in conjunction with diet and exercise user reports suggest it has helped them shed extra pounds at a quicker rate than they were used to.

It is our aim to provide you with a well rounded understanding and benefits of this product and how it may help with weight loss. We are here to help you fit healthy changes into your diet and provide with supplements that support your health goals.

All the Best~

Does Modifilan Brown Seaweed Extract Work?

That is a darn good question. Does it work? Will you lose weight if you use it?


Original R and D
Lets start the conversation by saying Modifilan was designed as a natural detox remedy to cleanse the body of heavy metals and radiation poisoning. The maker of Modifilan is aware that it is being touted as a weight loss supplement and the maker wants it to be known that while it can help with weight loss the R and D has been focused on detox.
Magic Bullet
Folks I hate to break it to you but there is no such thing as a magic bullet. You cannot simply take something to lose weight. YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR BEHAVIOR. YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR EATING HABITS AND EXERCISE HABITS. Brown seaweed extract does increase fat metabolism and increasing fat metabolism will help you lose weight. And, using Modifilan within the context of a balanced diet and exercise regime is your best approach.  Also consistency and commitment are important, you need to follow through to reap results.
Bigger Picture
Actual fat intake is only part of the picture, natural, raw, plant oils and fats are good for you, actually many fats are good for you such as fish oils. Fat intake may not be the “problem”. But, sugar intake is an issue, there are no two ways around this. Your body will store excess sugar it can’t metabolize as fat this will cause weight gain.
Our Stance
While we have benefited in sales from the increased attention this product has received we encourage a balanced lifestyle with supplements as an addition. They are called SUPPLEMENTS, ie they supplement the diet. If the diet is poor do not expect much from the supplement or even a lasting change. We have many natural healthy options available from raw plant proteins, raw healthy fats and low glycemic sweeteners. Green powders are also a great aid to weightloss they provide a wealth of nutrients with a minimum of calories.  Please refer to our earlier Post for some ideas and suggestions.
Bottomline
Modifilan will work within reason when used wisely and in combination with a balanced diet and plenty of exercise. It was also reported that the use of licorice extract along with modifilan boosts the weight loss potential of the product.
Summary
Modifilan combined with a healthy diet and exercise will be a benefit to your weight loss goals. But, only if you are consistent with the program you set for yourself.  Including green foods such asGreens First Powder in your diet will give you nutrition without calories. Also healthy oils, particularly coconut oil is a great aid to a fitness regime because the medium chain triglycerides get used as energy quickly by the body. Low glycemic sweeteners are also an important piece of the weightloss picture, you need to cut out the refined sugar and related products. Consider using stevia, agave nectar or coconut sugar instead; shop for these at our Sweeteners page.

Last but not least; the emotional level. It would be incomplete to leave the emotional piece of the equation out.  Food has a very powerful emotional impact on our lives and making changes around food can be very challenging on the emotional level.  I, Mark D’Aquila the author of these posts am also a specialist in the use of flower remedies for emotional healing.  And, I can help you address any emotional condition you want to change. Please contact me via my site to learn more and when you  mention Zebra Organics you’ll receive 15% off a personal consultation or any purchase.

Seaweed for Health

At Zebra Organics we stock a variety of healthy foods and a favorite of ours is seaweed. These vegetables of the sea contain a wide range of nutrients not found as easily in land vegetables. The are fun to eat and add variety and nutrition to the diet.

Nori

Seaweed is a common food in Japanese cuisine, one the most popular varieties being Nori.  One of the great benefits to consuming nori is that it contains an abundance of omega 3 fatty acids.  Omega 3 fats nourish the skin as well as the brain and modulate cholesterol levels and inflammatory compounds the body produces. And, it is high in vitamin C, proteins and mineral salts.

Kombu/Kelp
Kelp and kombu are both members of the same plant family, with kelp often being referred to as “wild atlantic kombu”. The main benefit of these sea vegetables is their rich content of minerals particularly iodine. They are both a natural source of this essential thyroid metabolism regulating mineral.  This is the sea vegetable which is rich in the anti oxidant compound fucoxanthin. Fucoxanthin assists the body with fat metabolism, thus it may aid with weight loss.

Dulse
One of my personal favorites of the sea vegetable varieties is Dulse. Like nori, dulse can be eaten straight out of the package making a quick healthy snack.  It is exceptionally tasty and contains many of the same benefits as other seaweeds: rich in minerals, protein dense, good source of iodine, healing and cleansing aliginate compounds.  Its deep red color and soft texture make it a great addition to soups and salads.

Additional benefits of consuming sea vegetables is their ability to bind to heavy metals and radio active particles and safely help your body remove them.   It is safe to say that nearly everyone can benefit from adding these miracles of the sea to their diet.  To make that easier for our customers we are running a sale on all Maine Coast Sea Vegetables, now is a good time to stock up and save.

Other Health Benefits
When using Modifilan seaweed extract not only will you be helping your fat metabolism but you get added heavy metal and radiation cleansing effects as well.  This product has been studied for its ability to bind to and help the body excrete radioactive isotopes including cesium, strontium and radioactive iodine.  This is promising, as the nuclear disaster in Japan has many people worried about potential radiation poisoning.

Modifilan Brown Seaweed Extract

We’ve been in love with seaweed for years and are always amazed at the accolades they receive.  So when we heard Dr. Oz was boasting about the weight loss and belly fat burning benefits of fucoxanthin from brown seaweed extract we were not surprised.

              -Rich in belly fat burning Fucoxanthin
     -Rich in heart healthy Laminarin

Heavy Metal and Radiation Cleansing

I am posting this to bring added awareness to what is already present. This post is meant to inform and educate not incite anxiety.

It is not uncommon to encounter heavy metals and radiation in our daily life. Our body is an amazing organism that is keen on maintaining balance under all circumstances, including in the presence of heavy metals and radiation.

Our bodies produce some of the most potent anti-oxidants in world. These compounds work to negate and support the cleansing of toxins, pollutants and free radicals.  And, the body could always use some extra support in its mission to keep our body and blood clean.  If you want to support your body in its mission of cleansing heavy metals and radiation consider supplementing you diet with the following  five food nutrients.

  1. Spirulina
  2. Chlorella
  3. Sea Veggies
  4. Cilantro
  5. Kidney Complex by Premier Research Labs
Spirulina:
This is one of the most nutrient dense foods available. Spirulina is rich in  70% protein by weight, contains bio available B12 & iron, high in dark pigment anti-oxidants and toxin binding compounds that help eliminate radioactive compounds from the body.

Chlorella:
Similar to spirulina, chlorella is a single cell algae, that is rich in proteins and dark pigment anti oxidants.  Chlorella is known to rapidly aid in repairing tissue and DNA/RNA due to the presence of Chlorella Growth Factor, a unique component to chlorella. CGF is a combination of proteins, peptides and vitamins.  Among these compounds is a heavy metal binding protein molecule, which is useful for binding to and clearing mercury from the body.

Sea Vegetables:
Another valuable nutrient dense food from the waters, sea vegetables contain alginates. These compounds which are naturally found in sea vegetables act as an absorbent and are particularly effective in absorbing lead and cadmium.

Cilantro:
This common herb is extremely effective at cleaning heavy metals from the body.  It works especially well to clean mercury from the body.  The best and easiest way to get these benefits is to consume the herb in its fresh state.  A few tablespoons a day in conjunction with a detox program to ensure the loosened metals are flushed from the body.

Kidney Complex by Premier Research Labs:
The kidneys are responsible for filtering the blood. As such they will be one of the organs most effected by heavy metals and radiation.  This supplement acts to support the kidneys while you are cleansing or it can be used as a general tonic to support kidney function.
At Zebra Organics we strive to bring you a range of quality products from trusted sources.  We stock a range of products from the ones listed above.  Of particular interest is the Spirulina/Chlorella combination tablets are powerful, convenient and easy to use.  And, they are on sale for $22.95 for 1,000 tablets!
You can browse the range of sea vegetables we offer by following this link.
And to purchase Premier Research Labs Kidney Complex visit this link.
