Natural vasodilators support a healthy circulatory system

16 April, 2012 Keeping the circulatory system running smoothly is an important aspect to continuing health. Every part of the body benefits from the proper circulation of blood. Adding vasodilators to your daily self-care can also offer a boost to your circulatory system. Vasodilators are substances which work to dilate, or expand, blood vessels. Some natural vasodilators include some of the polyphenols such as oleopein in olive leaves and the oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) in grape seed extract.

Being healthy and feeling energetic allows us to fully embrace life’s tasks and trials. Jeremiah’s words let us know there missions awaiting us. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jer. 29:11)

Health benefits of pomegranates and punicalagin

2 March, 2012 Although pomegranates are world-renown for their beauty, taste and religious inspiration, we love them the most for their powerful health benefits. Punicalagin is the polyphenol especially closely associated with pomegranates. Studies have shown that punicalagin has antioxidant, antifungal and antibacterial properties.

Resveratrol, SIRT1 and anti-aging

14 February, 2012 Anti-aging is one of the characteristics attributed to resveratrol. When resveratrol is in the body, it works to neutralize free radicals—rogue oxygen molecules that can damage or weaken cells. Free radicals can cause visible signs of aging, such as facial wrinkles, as well as injuries to the body’s internal structures, including damage to tissues or blood vessels.

Recent studies have indicated that resveratrol may prevent cells from overexerting themselves. Resveratrol turns on the SIRT1 protein, which controls the activation of genes.

The magic of resveratrol

30 January, 2012 We’ve already seen that resveratrol may be one of the factors responsible for the “French paradox,” but this unique polyphenol has many other properties, especially anti-aging support. Corralling free radicals and repairing damage to cells make resveratrol a worthwhile ally in the quest to boost health—and even mitigate signs of aging.

Healthy blood pressure basics

17 January, 2012 A frequent goal for fit living is to achieve or maintain a healthy blood pressure. Healthy blood pressure is a sign of a strong circulatory system, which means that your heart and blood vessels are well-equipped to fuel your body with both oxygen and nutrients.

But what exactly is healthy blood pressure? And what is the dividing line between healthy blood pressure and blood pressure that is too high?

Oleuropein is unique to olive trees and can contribute to both a healthy circulatory system and a healthy immune system. The antioxidant effects of oleuropein support increased blood flow and improved circulation from head to toe.

Resveratrol is one of the reasons behind the French Paradox

12 December, 2011 Red wine is noted for containing resveratrol, an antioxidant compound that neutralizes free radicals. A daily dose of resveratrol in red wine may also contribute to the lower rates of heart disease in France. The French paradox describes France’s cultural penchant for foods high in saturated fats and cholesterol--such as beef and full-fat dairy products like cheese, butter and cream—but without an expected parallel in high rates of heart disease and obesity. A noteworthy divergence between France and America is a marked difference in wine consumption. Wine is drunk frequently at the afternoon and evening meals in France

Pomegranates - One of nature's best antioxidants

4 December, 2011 The virtues of pomegranates--the beautiful, ruby-colored fruits cultivated in Israel since Biblical times--go far beyond taste. Pomegranates offer nutritional benefits that protect the body and promote health. We’ve chosen them to play a starring role in Galilee Nutritionals’ Super Antioxidant formula. Four separate plant-based chemicals, called polyphenols, are packed into pomegranates. These polyphenols can lower blood pressure and prevent cholesterol from turning into artery-clogging plaque.

Pomegranates in Israel

16 November, 2011 Pomegranates are one of the fruits brought back by the 12 men Moses sends to “spy out” the land God has promised to the Israelites (Numbers 13). The distinctive globe-like shape of the pomegranate appeared on both the vestments of the high priest in Jerusalem’s Holy Temple and carved into Solomon’s Palace.
