What is Vitamin E?

Vitamin E was discovered about 80 years ago, but in the last twenty years it has been discovered to be a powerful antioxidant. Vitamin E is fat soluble and poorly absorbed. It is stored in the fat tissues and the liver. Vitamin E offers numerous health benefits, particularly disease prevention because of its powerful antioxidant properties.

Vitamin E is a term for a group of related compounds called “tocopherols” and “tocotrienols”, which occur in four major forms: alpha, beta, delta, and gamma. Alpha tocopherol is the most common and most biologically active form of vitamin E. However, current research is indicating that different components in Vitamin E may be responsible for different actions. For example, scientists believe that alpha tocopherol inhibits production of free radicals and gammatocopherol neutralizes existing free radicals. Since Vitamin E is a family of nutrients, it makes sense to take it in a form, which includes all the members of the tocopherol family, which would further support the health benefits of Vitamin E. Our Vitamin E with Mixed Tocopherols is 100% natural and contains all four members of the tocopherol family of compounds, making it more nutritionally complete. A natural form of vitamin E is the most powerful and effective form of the antioxidant because it is the easiest form for your body to absorb. The Vitamin E used by our facility is derived from soybean oil and is significantly more potent than synthetic Vitamin E.

Why should you take Vitamin E?

Vitamin E scavenges the body for harmful free radicals and annihilates them. By destroying cellular membranes, free radicals are responsible for a variety of health problems including Alzheimer's disease, atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson's disease, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Vitamin E defends all cell membranes in the body from oxidative stress, promoting better health and immunity from illness, while increasing virility. In one controlled study 1200mg/day of Vitamin E was taken previous to a vigorous workout for two weeks.

Intense muscular exercise typically causes damage to white blood cells, but by supplementing with Vitamin E, subjects showed that white blood cell DNA damage was virtually eliminated. Another study tested Vitamin E for insulin sensitivity. Insulin is an important substance in muscle building. Ten healthy subjects took 1350 IU per day of Vitamin E for 4 months straight. They showed a tremendous improvement in glucose clearance and insulin sensitivity.

Who needs Vitamin E?

Anyone who wants better immunity and added protection against free radicals should supplement with Vitamin E. Supplementing with Vitamin E can increase the strength of your immune system and the overall health of your body. Vitamin E can also ease aches, pains, and sore muscles. Vitamin E is an essential nutrient.


• Vitamin E is generally non-toxic when taken in doses less than 1200 IU per day.

• In doses more than 1200 IU/day it may cause nausea, gas, diarrhea and heart palpitations.

• High doses of vitamin E may interfere with vitamin K activity.

• If you have an overactive thyroid, diabetes, hypertension, rheumatic heart disease, are taking prescription blood thinners, aspirin or are pregnant or lactating consult a health care practitioner before taking Vitamin E.



Is a vitamin like compound that is produced naturally in the body and is also found in most living
organisms. It is also called ubiquinone, a name that signifies it subiquitous (widespread) distribution
in the human body. As a coenzyme, this nutrient aids mitochondria, the powerhouse of cells, in the
complex process of transforming food into ATP.


Fish Oils -

EPA Fish Oils are great for preventing heart disease, high blood pressure, anxiety, stress and inflammation. They can be bought from a health shop or found in salmon (if eaten at least twice per week). However, because the capsules are a supplement, one should still eat salmon and/or plenty of green, leafy vegetables, avocado and nuts so that the supplements work with these foods.

EPA fish oil is high in polyunsaturated fat, i.e. Omega-3 fatty acids - BRAIN FOOD! These acids
are also found in linseed or flaxseed oil.


Omega 3

In addition to its dietary benefit, omega-3 is used as supplemental therapy for treating heart disease, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, ADHD, certain skin conditions, diabetes, chronic neck and lower back pain.

Many people yearn after a flat stomach or a six pack because they want to look good. But have you ever really thought of what a strong core does for you? Not only do you look great in that swimsuit, but abdominal muscles are really the core of all of your body movements.Your core is what holds all the better looking parts together. Your biceps, the abs, the chest, your arms, and body movements from other parts all stem from the core. Core training is the base note of all workouts, yet many people aren’t sure how to extend their routine in order to develop it.

Exercises designed for building balance and strength, and ones that can be done while using an exercise ball are generally great for core workouts. Free weights are excellent because they let you move in a broader scope without limiting movement. The reason interior strength is so important is that just about every motion made by the human body is initiated in the core. Lunges, running, swimming, jumping, and weights all start with the abdominals, hips, and lower back. Yoga practitioners, as well as dancers and athletes, have long known the benefits of a strong core.
By strengthening your core muscles you will reduce your risk of injury, have better posture, feel more comfortable sitting, increase your balance, increase energy levels, and give you better athletic ability when participating in sports or other activities. In order to strengthen your core you should focus on your stomach, back, and hips.
Crunches, lunges, and forward bends are all great strengthening exercises. Doing exercises on an exercise ball will increase the intensity, as these balls make you keep your balance and focus on core movements. Core training should be a part of your everyday work out.

You should work towards 30 minutes of cardio followed by core exercises such as situps, lunges, and reverse twists. Classes such as yoga, pilates, and boot camp will also incorporate many effective core strengthening exercises. Just as with other exercises, once your core becomes stronger and more toned, you will naturally lose more weight in that area. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!
