New Chapter: Mindforce- Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Clear your mind and improve your memory with Mother Nature’s smartest mushroom blend.

Here at the Shoppe we sell a variety of healthful products in many categories. Ever since, we have offered New Chapter: Mind Force it has been an absolute favorite among both employees and customers in our Memory and Brain support section.

Mind Force is formulated with a blend of therapeutic mushrooms that provide cognitive support and promote normal brain function. The absolute star of the show is Lion’s Mane mushroom. Sitting somewhere between plant and animal, mushrooms are some of the most unique organisms on the planet. Even among them, Lion’s Mane with its tooth like strands stands and lobster-like flavor stands out.

In Asia where it has been used for thousands of years, it said to bestow “nerves of steel and the memory of a lion”. Modern science seems to support these claims. Lion’s Mane is rich in over 70 bioactive compounds, the most studied of which are the erinacines. Erinacines promote NGF (nerve growth factor) in the body, which helps repair, grow, and protect nerves and neurons. Various conditions where healthier nerves may benefit include Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and Neuropathy just to name a few.

  • Boost Memory

  • Increase Focus

  • Reduce Stress

  • Support Healthy Nerve Function

  • Support Healthy Mood

  • Support Digestion

  • Enhance Detoxification

Let us not forget the stellar supporting cast either. New Chapter’s Mind Force also contains Reishi mushroom, which has also been shown to stimulate NGF, Poria, which has been used in China for anxiety and mental tension, and Chaga an adaptogenic mushroom extremely high in antioxidants.

So next time you’re in the Shoppe looking for mental clarity or a mental boost ask one of our nutrition specialist about the many benefits of New Chapter’s Mind Force and therapeutic mushrooms!

5 Must-Haves for Every Mom - Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Not enough sleep. Shuttling kids back and forth to and from school and sports practice. Demands at work. These can all lead to stress for the busy mom. Here’s what you need to stay healthy and balanced.

By Bryan Bradford, Chief Nutrition Officer of Sunflower Shoppe Natural Foods

1) Multivitamin. No matter how healthful and “clean” you eat, a quality multivitamin is critical to the foundation of good health. It makes up for the shortfall of nutrients that you may not be getting through your diet.

2) Omega oils. (aka essential fatty acids or fish oils) For brain function, healthy skin, hormone balance, immune function and so much more, make omegas part of your daily regimen. When we are under stress it can cause inflammation, as well as impede our ability to focus and handle mental fatigue. It is easy to add an oil supplement to support our brain into a morning smoothie or on our salad at lunch.

3) B complex. When our bodies are under stress, it immediately pulls from your body’s supply of B vitamins for energy and adrenal support to sustain your physical and mental energy throughout the day. (B12 fans: try a B-complex for more comprehensive energy support for those hectic days.)

4) Probiotics. Chronic stress can suppress your immune system leaving us vulnerable to every little bug that the kids come in contact with. Probiotics are an easy way to boost our immune systems and make sure that we are absorbing all the nutrients we are taking in. This assures we are in the best condition to fight off infection and viruses.

5) Calcium. No matter your age - be it childbearing years to post-menopausal stage of life - calcium is vital to the maintenance of strong, healthy bones (added benefits include healthy, hair, skin and nails).

Trending Product — Black Seed Oil. - Wednesday, May 03, 2017

5 reasons you need it in your diet

Black Seed: An ancient panacea known as “the cure to everything but death”. Learn why everyone from Hippocrates (the father of modern medicine) to King Tut revered black seed oil for its amazing healthful properties!

Many natural remedies have been used for thousands of years that have been largely forgotten in modern times. As we try to improve our health by lessening our reliance on synthetic drugs and chemicals, many of the ancient remedies are making a comeback. Black seed oil (Nigella Sativa) is one such remedy that is surging in popularity. Here we summarize a few of the most exciting benefits of black seed oil —

1. Asthma: Thymoquinone, an active phytochemical in Black seed oil was shown to work as well as some anti-asthmatic medications in an animal model of asthma.

2. Diabetes: Two grams of black seed a day resulted in reduced fasting glucose, decreased insulin resistance, increased beta-cell function, and reduced A1C.

3. Infection: Black seed oil has been studied for use against many diverse pathogens ranging from H.pylori, ringworms, yeasts, and toxic molds to MRSA.

4. Detox: Black seed was shown to protect the liver and kidneys from pharmaceuticals like antibiotics and environmental toxins such as exhaust and lead exposure.

5. Cancer: Rich in unique phytochemicals and antioxidants black seed has been investigated with favorable results for many types of cancers.

With well over 600 peer-reviewed articles written about black seed oil, one thing remains clear: there is hardly an ailment that does not benefit from taking black seed oil. With its rich history of use and long list of benefits verified by modern science, we cannot think of one reason why not everyone on the planet should have black seed oil as part of their healthful regimen.
