What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics for Your Health

You have bacteria living in your intestines. Some of them could make you sick; however there are also bacteria that are actually beneficial. These “friendly” bacteria or probiotics help keep bad bacteria and yeast from growing in your intestinal tract causing intestinal dysbiosis. Intestinal dysbiosis is a bacterial imbalance that results in overgrowth of bad bacteria and yeast.  Normally you have an abundance of friendly bacteria; however antibiotic treatment, stress and poor dietary choices may all cause intestinal dysbiosis.

Probiotics also help make vitamin K and keep your immune system functioning properly. They adhere to the intestinal walls and create a protective “barrier” between the pathogens and the intestinal wall.  This is important since 80% of our immune system is found in the intestines.  This barrier helps prevent the pathogens from making you ill.

Why Take Probiotics?

Probiotics can restore the balance of bacteria in your digestive tract.

When the bad bacteria and yeast become overgrown in your intestinal tract, you have a condition called dysbiosis. Dysbiosis has been linked with disorders like vaginal yeast infections, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, Colitis, Antibiotic Associated Diarrhea (AAD), C. Difficile infection, E. coli infection, traveler’s diarrhea, and rheumatoid arthritis.  Common causes of dysbiosis are stress, age, poor dietary habits and especially when on antibiotic treatment. The antibiotics that you take for killing an infection will also kill the healthy bacteria in your digestive tract.

Now, I know what you are thinking, “I already eat yogurt with probiotics.”  While it is true yogurt contains probiotics, the probiotics found in yogurt are not protected against your stomach acid.  Between 40-50% of the bacteria will be destroyed by your stomach acid and not reach your intestine where it is needed.  That is why taking a probiotic supplement is important

Why Choose Yogourmet Probiotics?

  • Yogourmet Maxium Strength Probiotic capsules have a water based enteric coating (free of any chemical solvents and environmentally friendly) protecting the probiotics from stomach acids.  The probiotics reach your intestinal tract undiminished.
  • The 10 probiotic strains found in Yogourmet Maximum Strength Probiotics are documented and verified strains.  Each strain has documented benefits and is DNA verified for true strain identity, assuring you are getting maximum benefit from all 10 probiotic strains.
  • At 13 billion of live and active strains per capsule Yogourmet Maximum Strength Probiotic capsules is one of the most potent probiotic on the market
  • Gluten free and contain Jerusalem Artichoke as a prebiotic.

Ancient Secrets – Neti Pot Safety

Neti Pots have been used safely and beneficially for thousands of years world wide.  Millions of Americans use neti pots regularly with no ill effects or problems.  Recently several cases have come into the news about people in Louisiana who died as a result of an amoebic infection possibly resulting from using water that was contaminated with this amoeba.  This particular type of amoeba is endemic to that region of Louisiana and there are apparently cases of people being infected by swimming in lakes or ponds in that area in the past as well.  We know of no cases outside that particular region where this has occurred.

While the national focus on these two Louisiana cases has brought a level of concern to the national media, it is quite apparent that this seems to be a highly localized problem due to the water supply in that part of the country.

Our current position is that in the interest of people who have such a concern acting in the safest possible manner, if they are using their  tap water, we are recommending that they use recently boiled water, to alleviate any concern.  Alternatively they can use sterilized or distilled water.  In either case, they will need to bring the water to a lukewarm status (not hot nor cold).   They can certainly also check with the local authorities about any issues that may need to be addressed  in their local water supply, and the purity standards used by their local water supplier. 

We have updated the usage instructions available online on our website at www.ancient-secrets.com to reflect these points.  The instructions online indicate the recommendation to use recently boiled or distilled water with the neti pot.

Neti Pots can be very beneficial and have been recommended by health professionals as a positive way to clean their nasal passages.  By using recently boiled or distilled water, users can alleviate concerns raised by the recent media-noted cases from a section of Louisiana.

We also recommend the regular cleaning of neti pots after use.  The Ancient Secrets ceramic and plastic models were both designed to be safe for use in automatic dishwashers which provides a level of cleaning that is the best way to keep them clean and provide the user the best experience.  Some other brands are not designed to be dishwasher-safe, so the use of an automatic dishwashing machine needs to be based on the specific brand of neti pot being used.

Our Ancient Secrets brand neti pots are also designed to be microwave safe for those who want to heat distilled water quickly in a microwave.  Regardless of how the water is heated, it should be allowed to cool to lukewarm status.

Natures Answer…40 Years of Excellence Since 1972

natures answer logo

From the age of 7 Frank D’Amelio Sr., CEO of Nature’s Answer had a powerful interest in the healing and restorative powers of plants. In 1972, after studying natural healing and taking courses on botany, herbal healing and chemistry, Frank evolved his interest into a business. With his wife and business partner, Josephine, the couple dedicated themselves to launching natural products which featured the highest quality herbal extracts and nutritional products to help support, promote and enhance healthier lifestyles. They insisted on preparing herbal and nutraceutical supplements that they would use themselves, and give to their children and family members.  It became a full family endeavor. Their eldest son, Frank D’Amelio, Jr. remembers how he, in 1974, spent part of his summer vacation applying labels to bottles and then filling shipping cartons.  The D’Amelio’s pioneered the distribution of liquid herbal extracts to retail health stores.  As the company continued to expand and grow, so did its reputation as being a manufacturer of exceptional quality products.

In addition, the alcohol used in any Nature’s Answer herbal extract product has the further distinction of being ‘certified organic’. Nature’s Answer Herbal Extracts are concentrated in a 1:1 ratio.

Heart Healthy Lifestyle

Heart Healthy Lifestyle

Heart Healthy Lifestyle

Every year over 1 million Americans suffer from a heart attack. People are becoming more aware of the serious nature of heart disease and the need to prevent it. There is a correlation between heart disease and education with those of a higher education level having a lower incidence of heart disease. Is awareness of diet and supplementation the reason behind lower heart disease rates in the better educated?

A natural healthy approach to reducing risk of heart disease should have three important components.

Three Pronged Approach to a Healthy Heart

  1. Diet
  2. Cut cholesterol
  3. Support Your Heart Muscle

Diet

Obesity is a killer when it comes to heart disease.  We suggest that everyone have a BIA analysis to determine their body fat percentage. If you are over 25% body fat you need to start to worry and make sure you take off the extra pounds. If you are over 30% your risk of heart disease is greatly increased. Even the skinny person should be careful as we’ve seen people suffering from sarcopenia. The person even though they have a skinny body they also have a high percentage of body fat. Skinny couch potatoes and desk jockeys have to worry the most about sarcopenia.

The diet we believe is the most successful in preventing heart disease is the Mediterranean diet. The people from the Mediterranean area have a much lower incidence of heart disease. The Lyon Diet Heart Study looked at people who had already survived one heart attack. The diet reduced mortality by 70% and was stopped early to publish the results for the general public due to its success.

Switching to a Mediterranean diet is a big step in having a healthy heart.

Cut Cholesterol

There are a variety of supplements that can be helpful in cutting cholesterol. Below is a list.

  1. Red Yeast Rice – We know of a few doctors’ offices prescribing this to their patients. We would caution you to use CoQ10 with the Red Yeast Rice as it isn’t uncommon to get muscle pains if you don’t combine it with the Red Yeast Rice. Not good for use in people with normal cholesterol levels.
  2. Aged Garlic – This has been successful in helping to lower cholesterol and also being very heart friendly. There are many articles discussing the benefits of aged garlic in helping heart disease. Certainly worth taking even if you don’t have high cholesterol.
  3. Fish Oil, Krill Oil – Everyone is well aware of the benefits of these healthy oils. Fish oil consumption helps to lower mortality rates. This should be a part of every healthy heart program. It should be a part of everyone’s daily supplement regiment.
  4. Fiber – Oat, flax, and soluble fibers are all helpful in controlling cholesterol.
  5. Artichoke Extract – Artichoke extract helps inhibit oxidation of LDL cholesterol and also helps to increase healthy HDL cholesterol.
  6. Niacin – Is often prescribed to help lower cholesterol. It often causes itching and isn’t for everyone.

Support Your Heart Muscle

  1. Exercise – Aerobic exercise is important in building up endurance of the heart muscle. However we also suggest interval training. Interval training is more anaerobic and is an intense training. Interval training helps to increase stroke volume or the amount of blood your heart can pump. This can be very important in protecting you from a heart attack and if you do have one it can help you to survive. Before starting any exercise program please check with your doctor.
  2. CoQ10 – CoQ10 is one of the more important nutrients in maintaining a healthy heart. CoQ10 helps not only to build strength of the muscles by improving energy production in the cells. As we age our CoQ10 levels decrease and a supplementation program helps to enhance our lower levels. CoQ10 also has shown results in lowering cholesterol and should be taken by everyone taking statins or red yeast rice.
