Superfood Performance Shake

(Post Eight)

 

Superfood? What the heck is Superfood?

Well that’s a damn good question. And it’s one that I was asking myself when I signed on to be a Blogger/Ambassador for Frezzor.com.

And to be completely honest, a month and a half later, I still have no clue what superfood is. But it looks, smells and tastes pretty darn healthy to me.

I added a scoop of this superfood performance shake mix to my pancake mix the other day. I thought, Hey, it’s the weekend… I’m feeling risky. Let’s do something dangerous.

And so I ended up with some really healthy looking, smelling, tasting pancakes… well, that is… until I smeared 2 Table spoons of butter and half a cup of syrup on them (still healthy, probably).

Well, the point here is this: Who knew that you could add something that is packed full of vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, K1, and K2) and Minerals (Calcium, Copper, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Zinc, and Iron), and boasts the healthy stat line of being raw, vegan, gmo-free, no artificial sugars, soy-free, dairy-free, and no artificial colors, to your very unhealthy pancakes to turn them into a breakfast that you can be proud of.

More to come on this developing story.

Finding Healthy in Frezzor’s Omega-3 (Final)

(Post Seven)

 

We’re now down to the final ingredients? Who’s still with me? Are you convinced that FREZZOR’s Omega-3 is worth trying? I am. Check out these health benefits, and then come check out their product at Frezzor.com/jacobgraham.

 

Black Currant-  According to WebMD.com “It’s a plant. People use the seed oil, leaves, fruit, and flowers to make medicine.

Women use black currant seed oil for treating symptoms of menopause, premenstrual syndrome, painful periods, and breast tenderness. It is also used for boosting immunity.

Black currant berry is used for coughs and Alzheimer’s disease.

Black currant dried leaf is used for arthritis, gout, joint pain (rheumatism), diarrhea, colic, hepatitis and other liver ailments, convulsions, and disorders that cause swelling (inflammation) of the mouth and throat. Black currant dried leaf is also used for treating coughs, colds, and whooping cough; disinfecting the urine; promoting urine flow; treating bladder stones, and as a cleansing tea.

Some people apply black currant leaf directly to the skin for treating wounds and insect bites.

In foods, black currant berry is used to flavor liqueurs and other products. People also eat black currant berry.

How does it work?

Black currant seed oil contains a chemical called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Some research suggests that GLA might improve the effectiveness of the immune system, making it more able to fight off disease. Black currant seed oil and leaves might also help decrease swelling.”

 

Boysenberries- According to Sara Ipatenco healthyeating.sfgate.com

“Boysenberries might not be stocked regularly in your local grocery store, but it’s worth seeking them out. Not only are the berries a good source of vitamin C and potassium, they also contain a host of other essential vitamins and minerals. The way you purchase boysenberries influences how nutritious they are. Fresh and frozen boysenberries are more nutritious than boysenberries canned in heavy syrup because they contain far less sugar.

Fiber

Fresh, frozen and canned boysenberries each supply about 7 grams of dietary fiber per 1-cup serving. The average diet contains only about 15 grams of fiber a day, which is significantly fewer than the 20 to 35 grams recommended for good health, according to the Harvard School of Public Health. Fiber is the part of a plant that can’t be digested, so it helps keep your arteries and intestines clear and healthy, which can reduce your risk of constipation, hemorrhoids, diverticular disease and heart disease.

Folate

Boysenberries supply a significant dose of folate, which is a B vitamin that aids in energy production and the formation of cells. The daily recommended intake of folate is 400 micrograms, though pregnant women are often advised to consume between 600 and 800 micrograms because the nutrient can reduce certain types of nervous system and brain birth defects. A 1-cup serving of fresh or frozen boysenberries contains about 83 micrograms of folate, and the same amount of canned boysenberries supplies 87 micrograms.

Vitamin E

Freezing boysenberries retains their vitamin E content, but canning strips the berries of this beneficial nutrient. A 1-cup serving of fresh or frozen boysenberries contains about 1.15 milligrams of vitamin E, which is slightly less than 10 percent of your daily requirement of 15 milligrams. Vitamin E protects your cells from damage, which can reduce your risk of cancer and heart disease. The vitamin also helps make red blood cells and enables your body to make use of vitamin K to clot your blood.”

 

Bioperine- According to Ray Sahelian, M.D. www.raysahelian.com

“Bioperine is a standardized piperine composition derived from black pepper extract. Made by Sabinsa, it is a standardized extract from the fruit of Piper nigrum (black pepper) or Piper longum (long pepper). It contains 95 percent piperine, which has potential health benefits.

Sabinsa claims that Bioperine has been shown in clinical research to increase the absorption of nutrients in nutritional supplement formulations. However, whether this potential increase in absorption, even if true, makes practical significance and improves health is not clear since most herbal and nutritional products are sold in higher than normal required dosages and additional absorption, even if true, may or may not be beneficial. It is possible that the use of Bioperine may increase the side effects of certain supplements if it is true that the use of this product increases absorption. For the time being it appears that the benefit – in terms of nutrient absorption – has more to do with a marketing agenda as opposed to real health benefit. However, it is also quite possible that piperine could well have benefits of its own – for instance as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, etc – that would make it a helpful supplement. Many herbal extracts have some benefit even if they have not been studied that well.”

 

Fulvic Acid- According to Dr. Josh Axe draxe.com

“Fulvic Acid is one of two classes of humic acidic, organic compounds found in the earth’s soils, rock sediments and bodies of water. Over the past several decades, we’ve learned a lot more about how humic substances found in dirt, including fulvic acid, can actually improve human gut health and therefore immune functions. While people used to obtain higher amounts of humic acids naturally from the soil, today they often turn to food-grade supplements to boost their nutrient intake and improve gut health.

Fulvic acid is found in nature as a product of microbial metabolism processes, which means it’s produced when organic plant matter decomposes and millions of beneficial healthy bacteria are released. That’s why fulvic acid is able to do the following:

1. Improves Gut Health and Immune Function

2. Helps Boost Digestion and Nutrient Absorption

3. Protects Cognitive Health

4. Improves Detoxification

5. Lowers Free Radical Damage and Inflammation

6. Improves Energy Levels and Lowers Pain

7. Repairs and Protects the Skin”

 

These ingredients seem to be the real deal. Why are you not trying Frezzor’s Omega-3? Come check it out at frezzor.com/jacobgraham.

 

 

Finding Healthy in Frezzor’s Omega-3 (Cont.)

(Post Six)

 

Last post I pretty much blew your mind by listing the health benefits of the first few organic ingredients of FREZZOR’s Omega-3. If you have any mind left, then I would like to go ahead and finish blowing it. (Or something.)

Anyway, let’s go ahead and take a look at a few more of the all-natural ingredients of FREZZOR’s Omega-3. And again, their Omega-3, and many other organic supplements, can be found at FREZZOR.com/jacobgraham.

 

*All health information is according to WebMD.

 

Curcumin- Holy crap, this is like the miracle plant. It’s used for pretty much everything: arthritis, heartburn, joint pain, stomach pain, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, bypass surgery, hemorrhage, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomach bloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver problems, Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, stomach ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gallbladder disorders, high cholesterol, a skin condition called lichen planus, skin inflammation from radiation treatment, and fatigue.

Aaaannnd on top of that, it’s also used for: headaches, bronchitis, colds, lung infections, fibromyalgia, leprosy, fever, menstrual problems, itchy skin, recovery after surgery, and cancers.

We’re not done yet.

It’s also used for: depression, Alzheimer’s disease, swelling in the middle layer of the eye, diabetes, water retention, worms, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), tuberculosis, urinary bladder inflammation, and kidney problems.

And if you’re still not convinced… some people put it on their skin for pain, ringworm, sprains and swellings, bruising, leech bites, eye infections, acne, inflammatory skin conditions and skin sores, soreness inside of the mouth, infected wounds, and gum disease.

Last but not least, (or maybe it is) it’s also used as an enema for people with inflammatory bowel disease.

 

Pine Bark Extract- Go ahead and sleep under your Christmas tree; it’s safe (probably). Pine has been used for upper and lower respiratory tract swelling (inflammation), stuffy nose, hoarseness, common cold, cough or bronchitis, fevers, tendency towards infection, and blood pressure problems.

Some even apply pine directly to the skin for mild muscle pain and nerve pain.

It contains chemicals that may fight against pain and swelling (inflammation). It can also kill bacteria and fungus.

 

Grape Seed Extract- Antioxidants anyone? Grape seed extract contains lots of antioxidants. It also reduces swelling caused by injury and helps with eye disease related to diabetes. Grape seed extract may also help with a type of poor circulation called (chronic venous insufficiency) and high cholesterol.

 

Kiwifruit Extract- Mmmm, Kiiiwiii. Kiwi is used for treating asthma. Some information suggests that the antioxidant effects of vitamin C or other compounds that are found in high concentrations in kiwi may benefit people with asthma.

Finding Healthy in Frezzor’s Omega-3

(Post Five)

 

Have you ever wondered what the actual health benefits of certain ingredients are in health supplements?

Well, if you said “no” then please humor me anyway and read on….

 

Let’s take a look at the first few all-natural ingredients of FREZZOR’s Omega-3. Their Omega-3 and many other organic supplements can be found at FREZZOR.com/jacobgraham.

 

*All health information is according to WebMD.

 

Green Lip Mussel Oil-  Did you know that ehe New Zealand green-lipped mussel is a shellfish and is used in certain medicines? It can be found in a freeze-dried, ground, or capsule form.

The New Zealand green-lipped mussel is mostly used for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and asthma. It is believed to have chemicals that will help to decrease inflammation.

 

Flax Seed Oil- It’s practically God-like. It’s been used for many different conditions, such as, arthritis, high cholesterol, anxiety, benign prostatic hyperplasia, vaginal infections, dry eyes, hardening of the arteries, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and ADHD.

It’s even been tried for constipation, weight loss, and to prevent breast cancer and prostate cancer. It can be applied to the skin to sooth irritations and even used as a cooking oil or in margarine.

 

Kiwifruit Seed Oil- Kiwi is actually used for treating asthma. Some information suggests that the antioxidant effects of vitamin C or other compounds that are found in high concentrations in kiwi may benefit people with asthma.

 

Astaxanthin- Well this is interesting. Astaxanthin is used for treating Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, high cholesterol, and an eye condition called age-related macular degeneration (AMD). It’s also used for preventing cancer! Astaxanthin is an antioxidant that may protect cells from damage and may improve the way that the immune system functions.

 

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m impressed.

  New Zealand: It’s Pretty Much Organic

(Post Two)

 

New Zealand is becoming a big deal in the health craze ideology that has been ever sweeping across the United States (and world) since the beginning of time (probably).

 

To keep it short and sweet, here are my top 3 reasons that make New Zealand (and FREZZOR.com) an ideal selection for your health supplement needs.

 

  1. Environment

 

One of the most influential factors in making New Zealand products unique is that the country itself was isolated for millions of years. This has allowed New Zealand’s plants and animals to evolve into a self-sustaining, super environment.

 

In other words, New Zealand is like a survivalist prepper during the Zombie apocalypse.

 

  1. Weather

 

As a one-time, half-a-summer gardener, I can tell you just how important weather is to growing good plants. Very.

 

New Zealand has the perfect climate (temperature, rain, and mix of sun and clouds) for growing. Thus (look at me getting all fancy), being ideal for its many farms, crops, unique plant life, and healthy, organic ingredients.

 

  1. Culture

 

New Zealand is a warm and friendly place that knows the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. It still has a deep tradition of “natural” medicines. With numerous health shops that carry organic New Zealand supplements and vitamins, healthy living is a part of their culture.

 

Hell, it might even be the location of the Fountain of Youth!*

(*I made that up)

 

New Zealand = All-Natural

All-Natural = Organic

Organic = Healthy

Healthy = Good

Good = FREZZOR.com

 

FREZZOR.com is a New Zealand Company that promotes an all-natural, organic, and clean product. FREZZOR.com’s supplements are packed full of its self-sustaining ecosystem, a friendly and healthy life-style, all-natural and organic ingredients, picked at the peak of ripeness, and hand-selected finest natural ingredients, while wrapped with a friendly, healthy smile and 90-day, unconditional money back guarantee.

Bringing Young Back 

(Post One)

 

Well, let’s face it, young people get old and old people get older (well, until a certain point, anyway). No one is as young as they were yesterday. We ache, we crack, we pop, we grunt, we sleep and moan our way through the day.

 

And no one will ever be as youthful as they are right now (ok, given the advances in modern science and medicine, and the search for the fountain of youth… there may actually be some hope).

 

But until then, what can we do to feel better? What can we do to keep active, without breaking ourselves or resting for 2 weeks after?

 

It seems that every year there is a new “miracle” supplement, some weight loss break through or detox, or pill that takes you back to your twenties.

 

You’ve seen it. It scrolls up your Facebook newsfeed, it comes up in conversations about that extra weight you put on in the winter. The idea of health benefits without spending hours in the gym is just too beautiful to let go.

 

I understand. I have my old days too. But as an active athlete for the entirety of my life, so far, I find myself a bit skeptical when it comes to the supplement craze.

 

Now, don’t get me wrong… I’ve done the Creatine thing back in high school, I’ve tried whey protein, omega-3, vitamin d, and Bud Light. (And I don’t recommend Bud Light before a long run… don’t ask me how I know.)

 

But it’s not as easy as it used to be, to go hit the gym for an hour, or bust out 3 miles real quick. Hell, I get winded when I eat too fast, let alone sprinting my hill three times a week.

 

And let’s be honest, nobody wants to be the fat kid, or the tall glass of water. But after the Marines and football… I don’t move like I used to. Putting on socks and tying my shoes is an exercise all in itself. From knee surgery, to shrinking half an inch after Iraq, to rolled ankles, stiff joints, to a complete lack of energy and desire… my thirties are starting to piss me off.

 

So, I’ve decided to check out the supplement game.

 

I’ve come across a New Zealand company, FREZZOR.com (also based in California), that was looking for a blogger to write about their product. After a few weeks of discussion, we decided that we would enter into an agreement: They will send me products for me to sample, and I will write about them.

 

Initially I asked why their products are better than others. Well, FREZZOR.COM boasts that their product is superior because it is an all-natural, organic, product of New Zealand.

 

So what is it that makes New Zealand products better than others? Well, that will be my next blog topic.

Follow along with me on this journey as I test drive their Omega-3, Whey Protein, Detox, and Superfood Performance Shake. You can find my posts on the right side of my homepage under the “Writing Healthy” tab.
