Memory Enhancement Supplements

Memory Enhancement Supplements: Sagee

What is Sagee? If you have never heard of it, here are the basics. Sagee is a product that is extracted from completely natural herbs and plants, many of which are used in traditional Chinese medicine. Sagee is produced in a GMP facility that is approved by the Canadian government. Sagee contains no western drugs, and is a completely safe compound that will have no negative side effects. If you want a truly natural memory enhancement supplement, Sagee is a good choice for you.

Sagee contains extracts from Korean ginseng, Lycium Barbarum, grape seeds, Blue berry, Ginkgo Biloba. While we highly recommend this product, we also acknowledge that other substances may also be good memory enhancement supplements. Below we have compiled a short list which may be helpful to you.

Other Supplement Options

You should consult a doctor to ensure that these substances will be safe for you – they are all generally safe, however there is no telling if you may have an allergic reaction, for example. If you decide to take any of these supplements, including Sagee, you should always adhere to the recommended dosage, and not exceed the daily limit. It is also wise to take supplements in isolation, rather than combining them. Lastly, different things work for different individuals, so you will have to find out what works best for your body.

  • Creatine. This is an acid that is naturally produced by animals; it improves muscle strength, boosts memory, and increases your attention span. Scientists say that it plays an important role in the homeostasis of brain energy.
  • Caffeine, in combination with L-theanine. Caffeine may help keep you awake, but taken in isolation, it does not really improve cognitive function. It may improve your mood temporarily. However, when taken with L-theanine (an amino acid that can be found in green tea), the effects are longer lasting and more beneficial. Working memory improves, visual information is processed quicker, and you will be less easily distracted.
  • Dark chocolate. Here is one that most people already enjoy! Dark chocolate contains flavanols, which is a cognitive enhancing phytochemical. Antioxidants stimulate the brain and its neurological processes – and it has a special effect on memory and learning capabilities. Try to avoid overly-sweetened dark chocolate, however.
  • Piracetam and Choline. Piracetam works by improving the function of receptors and transmitters in the brain. In combination with choline, you can boost your spatial memory and overall cognitive processes.
  • Omega-3. These fatty acids are commonly found in fish oil, but also in flaxseed and walnuts, and in beans. Omega-3 has been quite a popular “brain supplement” for a while now, and is used to prevent age-related decline in cognitive abilities. It is also a mood enhancer.
  • Other Herbal supplements. Bacopa Monnieri,  Rhodiola Rosea, Panax Ginseng, and Salvia Lavandulaefolia (Spanish sage) are among the herbal memory enhancement supplements that are known to have positive effects.

Remember that Sagee is one of the safest options to try; it is a supplement that has been tried and tested, and it contains optimum amounts of the herbs that you need to boost memory function.

Liver Supplements

Kang-YuanThe liver plays a very important role in the body, performing several essential functions. At times, liver detoxification and/or liver supplements may be necessary in order to keep the liver healthy. There are many herbal liver supplements that can support and aid the liver’s function, but it important to first understand exactly why they may be necessary. For this, one needs to know exactly what roles the liver performs in the body.

Here are some of the most important liver functions:

  • The liver metabolizes carbohydrates
  • Maintains blood glucose levels
  • Fat metabolism
  • Protein metabolism
  • The liver activates Vitamin D, an essential resource for the body
  • Creation of bile salt, in order to break down fat molecules
  • Bile excretion
  • The liver is also responsible for detoxifying drugs (e.g. antibiotics) and hormones
  • Storage of vitamins and iron
  • Breaks down old cells and bacteria

Signs That You May Need Liver Supplements

Oftentimes, problems with the liver will show up on your skin. This happens when the liver is unable to deal with waste efficiently, and toxic elements begin to build up in your liver. If you begin to experience or notice any of the symptoms below, you may want to look into taking herbal liver supplements like Kang Yuan, or look into detoxification options.

  • One of the tell-tale signs that your liver is not doing its job well is this: sallow skin. This may mean that either drug residue or waste is building up, probably due to the liver’s function being impaired for one reason or another.
  • Another symptom is acne, and uneven skin tone and texture. This may be due to pollutants from the environment that your liver is not handling well, a bad diet, or high levels of stress.
  • Age spots are another sign that waste is building up in your liver.
  • If you have sagging skin or lots of wrinkles, this could be caused by the consumption of too many refined flour and sugar products. These can cause an increase in the amount of free radicals, which in turn have an effect on your skin’s collagen and elastin.
  • Skin allergies, sores, or rashes that don’t heal are another sign of liver problems. They may also point to Vitamin C or zinc deficiencies.
  • Eye bags or dark circles around the eyes may be a sign that your liver and kidneys are not functioning normally.
  • Conditions like eczema, dermatitis, or psoriasis may also be a symptom of improper liver function, related to digestion issues, allergies, or nutritional imbalance.
  • Lastly, bad breath can be a sign of your body not dealing with toxins properly.

Herbal Liver Supplements

Many herbal remedies might be able to detoxify the liver. They generally aim to increase the flow of bile, and should not be confused with treatments for serious conditions like hepatitis. Bile is a substance that can be reabsorbed into your body through the intestines, so issues can arise when the digestive tract is not functioning well. If bowel movements are not regular enough, there is too much opportunity for bile to be reabsorbed. (By this point the bile contains toxins and other waste products.) When this happens the liver has to do double the amount of work, in order to get rid of these toxins again.

There are a few well-known herbal liver supplements that are commonly used. Milk Thistle, Silibum Marianum, is the most lauded supplement. It is an ingredient in many liver detoxification remedies. The silymarin in milk thistle is said to protect the cells of the liver against damage from the toxins that the liver deals with. Milk thistle in liver supplements is also supposed to lower blood lipid levels.

Artichokes (Cynara Scolymus) and dandelion roots (Taraxacum Officinale) are two more common ingredients in herbal liver supplements. Artichoke is known to offer multiple benefits, such as increasing the amount of cholesterol that is excreted in bile, increasing the production of bile, and inhibiting the creation of cholesterol. It also assists the liver in producing more healthy liver cells. Dandelion root helps both the liver and the kidneys perform their functions. It increases the production of bile as well, enabling more toxic waste to be excreted from the body.

Autism Supplements

 

SONY DSCIf you are caring for someone with autism, you may have found that it is necessary to use autism supplements. Why is this so? Particularly for autistic children, nutritional supplements can be very helpful, as oftentimes many of their body’s systems do not function at 100% on their own. Additionally, it is common for them to have weaker digestive systems that have a harder time absorbing nutrients.

Autism supplements aim to provide the body with the nutrients that it needs, to enable it to function on its own with less external help. The supplements should also aid the digestive system, prompting it to absorb various nutrients and to better utilize them. The challenge with autism patients, however, is that one must introduce new things to them very carefully, so as not to create any new problems or complications. The best thing to do is to simply take it step by step.

Basic Autism Supplements

If you are a parent who is just starting to give your child supplements, take your time to do the research and planning; educate yourself on all the various associated issues or side effects that might transpire. You will have to be patient. There are some basic types of autism supplements that autistic children (and adults) need, such as the following:

  • Probiotics
  • Minerals & vitamins
  • Enzymes to aid digestion
  • Fatty acids contained in fish oil and other sources

This is a basic list, although you will find many variations of this list, perhaps broken down into many separate components. The best advice we can give is that when you start your child on supplements, you should always only add or change one thing at a time. This way, if there are any undesirable side effects, it will be a simple matter of pinpointing the element that is responsible for the change. Caution is also advised, depending on which supplements you plan to give the person under your care.

Existing Research

Some scientists are sceptical of the efficacy and benefits of giving autism supplements to patients. According to them, there is insufficient research to prove the benefits. Researchers have found, however, that in some cases, autistic patients have a metabolic deficiency. This suggests that amino acid supplements or carnitine may help sufferers of autism.

These findings may point to the fact that in certain cases, autism may be treatable or preventable, but the results are still inconclusive. While giving patients autism supplements seems to improve the symptoms in some cases, they do not know for certain whether this is limited to those with certain genetic predispositions, or whether the supplements might help patients with autism across the board. There are researchers who are investigating this specific question right now.

In Norway, a study was recently conducted that followed women who took a folic acid supplement during an early stage of pregnancy. The results showed that this in fact reduced their risk of giving birth to an autistic child by 40 percent. In another controlled trial, giving autistic children an antioxidant (N-acetylcysteine) successfully improved their mood and levels of irritability.

Despite some positive results and findings, scientists still caution parents not to haphazardly give their children amino acid and antioxidant autism supplements – further research still needs to be done.

Flavonoids: Good or Bad?

It is a well-established fact that diets high in fruits and plants are healthy. One of the properties of plants is that they contain lots of flavonoids, so therefore, flavonoids must be healthy. However, a study published by the University of Colorado has shown that this is not necessarily the case. Flavonoids are active, and do not function in predictable patterns. What scientists have found is that they do not always have a positive effect.

Flavonoids are a part of luteolin, which is one of the commonly recommended autism supplements for children. The study found that luteolin repressed cancer, in one case, but surprisingly, in another case it served to promote cancer. As of now, results are inconclusive, but researchers warn against giving children this potentially harmful autism supplement. The problem with these types of supplements is that they are not regulated as strictly as medicines are. Therefore, companies tend to be lax with testing for unwanted side effects and long-term effects.

A Natural Herbal Supplement

If you are looking for a safe supplement to boost the autism patient’s overall well-being, it may be worth trying Sagee, and staying clear of some of these over-the-counter supplements that may have negative long-term effects. Sagee is a natural supplement that is extracted from traditional Chinese herbs. It is manufactured by a Canadian government GMP-approved facility, and is perfectly safe to consume along with your regular healthy diet.

        • Moringa oleifera. The powder from this plant is a particularly strong antioxidant. It has anti-inflammatory properties which can help conditions such as gout, arthritis, and lupus. It can also be effective against colitis, ulcers, and other digestive system disorders.

Thyroid Supplements

thyroidthrou

Why would anyone need to worry about taking thyroid supplements? You’re probably perfectly healthy with nothing to worry about, right? Well, the surprising fact is that a large number of North Americans have problems with their thyroid gland, and as many of half of these cases may even go undiagnosed. Ninety percent of thyroid patients have hypothyroidism – in other words, they have a thyroid gland that is not active enough.

Your thyroid gland is an extremely important part of your body. As it is responsible for controlling metabolism, the efficient functioning of the thyroid (or lack thereof) affects almost every system in the body. If your thyroid is not functioning perfectly, it follows that you are not functioning at 100 percent either.

Some Signs of Hypothyroidism

You may be interested in taking thyroid supplements after discovering that your thyroid gland is not doing its job well. However, how can you tell if this is the case? What are some of the signs and symptoms that may point to hypothyroidism?

    • Constant fatigue, even if you are running on plenty of sleep
    • Sudden weight gain
    • The inability to drop a few pounds
    • Noticeable hormonal imbalances
    • Mood swings, depression, and anxiety issues
    • A low sex drive
    • Recurring muscle pain, tendonitis, and possibly carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Dry skin, too much hair loss, change in nail texture
    • Poor memory and concentration
    • Excessive snoring, or hoarseness in your voice
    • A swollen neck
    • Feeling cold when other people don’t, cold hands and feet
    • Constipation

The thyroid gland is closely linked to your hypothalamus and your pituitary gland. Depending on the feedback between these three organs, your thyroid releases the appropriate amount of hormones. TRH from the hypothalamus stimulates the production of TSH (pituitary thyrotropin); this in turn stimulates the thyroid gland to produce T4 and T3. When there is sufficient T4 in your system, it sends a signal to stop the production of TRH and TSH.T3 is the active thyroid hormone that controls your metabolism, keeps your body warm enough, keeps your bowels functioning well, and controls the level of other hormones in your body. This is why the effects can be so severe when a patient has hypothyroidism. The most common form of hypothyroidism is known as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis – it is an autoimmune disease which causes the body to attack its own systems or organs.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Unfortunately, many thyroid imbalance symptoms are rather vague – and doctors sometimes do not ask enough questions to find out exactly what the problem is. Good health care providers will run extra tests (beyond the TSH and T4 tests) to determine what is really going on in the patient’s body.

Once you are diagnosed with hypothyroidism, there are a range of treatments available, as well as thyroid supplements that you can take. You must be extremely careful which supplements you choose to take, however. Researchers have found that too many “thyroid supplements” contain potentially harmful levels of hormones. The problem is that supplements are not subject to the same testing and scrutiny as medical drugs are, and they are easily available online, or through sketchy multi-level-marketing schemes.

Therefore, it pays to be aware of exactly what you are buying. Most of the thyroid supplements contain ground-up thyroid glands from animals like cows or pigs (and these ingredients may or may not be accurately listed on the packaging). Researchers determined that 90 percent of the thyroid supplements tested contained T4. This is particularly dangerous to patients’ health, because too much T4 may induce symptoms like heart palpitations, affect one’s blood pressure, trigger insomnia, and so on. Thus, it is advisable to take only prescription thyroid hormone medications, or to stick to safe herbal supplements.

Herbal Thyroid Supplements

If you have never heard of tTHYROID-THROU, you have come to the right place. Unlike other potentially harmful thyroid supplements, Thyroid-Throu is a natural, herbal compound.  Thyroid-throu is a thyroid package.  It benefits the body by cleansing the thyroid glands so that the thyroid can normalize its function.

Besides taking Sagee, here are a number of other things you can do to facilitate healthy thyroid function:

  • Take high quality multivitamins that contain iron, vitamin B, selenium, zinc, and vitamin D.
  • Tyrosine and iodine supplements can help with the conversion of FT4 to FT3.
  • Develop strategies to better manage your stress levels.
  • Try a gluten-free diet (this may especially help patients with Hashimoto’s).
  • Get plenty of sleep.
  • Do yoga.
  • Take good care of your digestive system.
  • Limit your exposure to chemicals like chorine, fluoride, and bromide.

Seizure Epilepsy Supplements

Seizure Epilepsy SupplementsIt is common and understandable that people with epilepsy, or caregivers for someone who suffers from epilepsy or seizures, would be interested in finding good seizure epilepsy supplements. It can be a difficult condition to live with, but luckily there are treatments and supplements available that might ease the effect of seizures, or even reduce the frequency of their occurrence.

Epilepsy is a neurological condition; in about 50 percent of cases, a person with epilepsy may have fits or seizures caused by no triggering elements or circumstances whatsoever. Both adults and children may suffer from epilepsy. Unfortunately, epilepsy is a condition that cannot be cured. Seizures are correlated with hyperactivity in the brain, and happen when the brain cells send the wrong electrical signals. At times, seizures may be brought on by trauma, stress, or certain drugs. Other causes include infections in the central nervous system (e.g. meningitis), dementia, and brain tumours.

There are several different types of epilepsy, which are divided based on the various symptoms, the person’s age, and the particular brain characteristics involved in the condition. Having one seizure does not necessarily mean that you have epilepsy; generally multiple seizures take place before a diagnosis is made. Sometimes children can outgrow epilepsy. If you have had a seizure before, extra care needs to be taken when performing activities like driving, swimming, or running – an unfortunately timed incident may cause you to inadvertently harm yourself or others.

Medical Treatment Options

The goal of any medical treatment or seizure epilepsy supplements is to reduce the number of seizures or to stop them if possible, and to help the individual readjust to a regular everyday life and work schedule. A medical professional will often prescribe certain medications which should help control the seizures. Between 30 to 70 percent of individuals who have a seizure will have it recur within twelve months.

Oftentimes, the patient may need to try a number of different drug combinations before finding one that works well. Anticonvulsant drugs and sedatives are standard medical prescriptions for individuals who have epileptic episodes. There is also a procedure known as vagus nerve stimulation which is an option for those who do not respond to standard drugs. Unfortunately VNS is associated with a number of side effects including sleep apnea, alteration of voice, nausea, vomiting, and headaches.

Medical Seizure Epilepsy Supplements

Taking seizure epilepsy supplements and making dietary changes can help reduce the number of seizures an individual may have. Some supplements may worsen the symptoms, however, so be sure to consult with your doctor before taking any new seizure epilepsy supplements, no matter whether they are herbal or medical.

Starting on a ketogenic diet helps some individuals control the number of seizures that they have. Ketogenic diets are low in protein and carbs, but high in fat. This type of diet needs to be carefully monitored, and mineral and vitamin supplements are almost always necessary due to the restrictive nature of this diet. Additionally, patients should generally avoid stimulants like caffeine and alcohol. Your medical professional should also provide comprehensive allergy screening to identify any food allergies that you may have – in children some studies have shown a connection between allergies and the occurrence of seizures.

Taurine, folic acid, calcium, and vitamins B12, E, D, and K are some of the seizure epilepsy supplements sometimes recommended by healthcare professionals. Be sure to consult your doctor before taking any of them, however. Calcium in particular can disrupt the functioning of anticonvulsant drugs.

Herbal Seizure Epilepsy Supplements

Herbs are natural compounds that can strengthen the body’s systems. You will often find them in dried extract forms, in capsules, teas, and powders. Sometimes they may come as gylcerites or in alcohol tinctures. Teas should generally be made with one teaspoon of the herb, for every cup of hot water. Leafs and flowers should be steeped for between five and ten minutes, while roots require more time (ten to twenty minutes). It is normal to drink about two to four cups of herbal tea every day.

Most of the herbs used as seizure epilepsy supplements have a sedating effect. Remember to inform your doctor if you take any herbal supplements. Some of the common supplements are: chamomile, bacopa monnieri, kava, passionflower, valerian, and gingko. You should, however, avoid essential oils like eucalyptus, rosemary, thuja, wormwood, sage, fennel, and hyssop.

A Superior, Natural Supplement

This supplement is completely safe to take, with no known side effects on the individual. You may want to consult your doctor before taking Sagee along with other prescription medications, as you would with other supplements.
