Baxyl: For Joint Pain & Inflammation

by Eric Robert Santiago on 03/20/13

BAXYL is one of the most effective products our advisory staff has ever recommended to their patients. The perfect remedy for people who suffer from chronic lower back and neck pain, headaches, repetitive stress disorders, work injuries and whiplash, Baxyl is a truly unique product; ideal for patients under chiropractic care, physio-therapy methodologies, or exercise therapy.

Hyaluronan is a naturally occurring component of many of the body's tissues and biologic fluids. Chemically speaking, it is the same molecule in all mammals and has been safely used as a supplement in people for years. There are no known contraindications, interactions, or side effects associated with Baxyl supplementation.*

The profound roles of the body's own hyaluronan in healthy joints and connective tissue function are the basis for using Baxyl. The physical properties of hyaluronan provide the hydration and moisture retention necessary to lubricate the joints and tissues, and to initiate cell proliferation and migration within the body.*
Baxyl was developed for maximum bioavailability and efficacy. It is a safe and effective oral liquid hyaluronan supplement for the support of joint health and mobility in humans. Don't just reach for any hyaluronan product on the store shelf. You deserve better! Unlike most joint supplements that use processed animal by-products; Baxyl's patent-pending formulation is microbially synthesized, and therefore 100% vegan. Baxyl is of the highest quality, and contains no ingredients from China to ensure you are receiving a safe product that is free of impurities and contaminants.

Baxyl is an effective and convenient way to:

· Promote healthy joint mobility and lubrication
· Enhance the maintenance of cartilage and joint tissues
· Support healthy bone formation*
· Support the maintenance of smooth skin
. Support vertebrae and spine health
· Enhance ocular health

Digestive Balance & Immunity

Digestive balance and immunity

Balance is the key. Did you know that eating a healthy or "balanced" diet could also mean fewer digestive discomforts (e.g., bloating, constipation, indigestion). And keeping a "life balance" by managing stress and maintaining mental well-being helps reduce the cause of certain digestive symptoms (e.g., emotional eating, eating on the run). While a balance of nutrients aids digestive function and comfort in many ways, so does a balance of intestinal bacteria or microflora.

The immune connection. Over 70% of the body's immune cells are in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, which is also home to hundreds of bacterial strains—both good and bad. One of the GI system's main functions is to rid the body of harmful bacteria and maintain a favorable ratio of health-promoting microflora. But diets high in sugars and low in fiber can foster harmful bacteria growth, and antibiotics can remove good bacteria right along with the bad. Daily supplementation with beneficial ("probiotic") bacteria complements healthy eating, regular exercise, and managing stress to support digestive and overall health. Probiotics can also be used strategically to help respond to "acute" instances of digestive distress related to inflammation and the immune response, such as travel-associated diarrhea or discomforts associated with irritable bowel syndrome.

Which probiotic is right for you? Different probiotic strains have unique benefits. So it's important to take a beneficial combination of probiotic strains for your needs in a product that has been thoroughly tested.

Tired of unsuccesful weight loss?

March 1, 2013

Tired of unsuccessful weight loss? Repeated weight loss and regain may be doing you more harm than good. "Yo-yo" dieting or weight cycling can have psychological effects (e.g., disappointment, self-esteem issues) that inhibit weight maintenance. Repeated weight loss/gain has also been suggested to contribute to heart and blood sugar-related issues especially if weight regain exceeds a healthy weight and is maintained over time. Even at a healthy weight, aging bodies naturally lose muscle and favor fat storage, both of which can contribute to health problems and compromised functioning that impact independent living. That's why many health experts recommend a "lifestyle" approach to maintaining a healthy weight, incorporating principles that can become lifelong habits after short-term weight loss goals are met. Some important things to consider in a healthy plan for weight loss/maintenance include: Protein intake. Protein helps maintain muscle, is lower in calories, and helps curb cravings. A greater percentage of lean muscle benefits general health and well-being. Carbohydrate intake. Higher intake of refined sugars stimulates hunger, increases cravings for sweet foods, and promotes fat storage. Plus, our bodies store (as fat) the excess carbohydrates that aren't used as fuel. Fat intake. Lowfat diets may not consider the quality of fat intake, or they may recommend a counterproductive increase in carbohydrate intake. Fats also help prolong hunger. Phytonutrient intake. Vegetables, fruits, nuts, and herb/spices contain phytochemicals that offer heath benefits similar to vitamins/minerals. It's important to include fresh, whole foods to ensure a healthy intake of a spectrum of phytonutrients and fiber. Exercise. Regular physical activity helps maintain lean body mass. Stress management. Stress can cause hormonal changes or unhealthy habits that lead to weight gain.

Take Control of Cholesterol and Blood Pressure

by Eric Robert Santiago on 02/25/13

Concerned about your blood pressure or cholesterol levels? High blood pressure (hypertension) and blood lipid conditions (high triglycerides; high LDL “bad” cholesterol; low HDL “good” cholesterol) are early steps in the development of more serious diseases (metabolic syndrome, heart disease, type 2 diabetes) or cardiac events. Keeping blood pressure and blood lipids (fats) under control are one of the best health “ensurance” policies you can have.

Personalized nutritional support can help. While genetic factors (like family health history) play a role in developing blood pressure/lipid conditions, they're often preventable, manageable, and even reversible. Leading health organizations now recommend changing lifestyle habits—reducing body fat, exercising regularly, quitting smoking, managing stress, and eating healthy—before trying more aggressive therapeutic agents that can lead to serious adverse events with long-term use. Nutritional recommendations, such as concentrated fish oil supplements and condition-specific medical foods, are designed to make lifestyle recommendations for these conditions work even better...and faster!

Get some helpful advice and support. When it comes to improving chronic disease risk factors, it's hard to know what steps to take on your own. What should you eat? What nutritional supplements do you need? Where can you get them? We can help you go in the right direction. In fact, research often shows greater success for patients who have support and guidance from a healthcare professional than for those who try to go it alone.

CoQ10 vs. CoQ10, what's the difference?

by Eric Robert Santiago on 02/18/13

People ask me all the time, "what is the difference between the various forms of CoQ10, specifically, ubiquinol v. ubiquinone?" Hopefully, this blog will clear up some of these questions. CoQ10 is vital for strong hearts and healthy aging. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) or ubiquinone is a vitamin-like substance manufactured in the body that's sometimes referred to as "vitamin Q" for its many important contributions. It's a necessary component of the energy-producing machinery (mitochondria) of the bodys cells. It also helps maintain cellular health and protect against harmful substances (free radicals) produced in the body that can "speed up" the aging process by contributing to age-related illnesses and declining function. CoQ10 has also been extensively studied for heart and circulatory benefits. CoQ10 levels decline with age and can be further depleted by medications. Your body makes most of the CoQ10 it needs, but production gradually slows after age 20. Food sources are limited and provide only small amounts the body can't absorb easily. And certain medicationsincluding diuretics and statins (for lowering cholesterol)also reduce CoQ10. So can too much strenuous exercise. (Depleted CoQ10 makes exercise fatigue more noticeable and slows down muscle/injury recovery.) CoQ10 with greater "bioavailability" offers greater success. Like dietary sources of CoQ10, supplements may be difficult to absorb. A supplement designed for "bioavailability" advantages means greater absorption potential. So you can take less and get more expected benefits. Recent advancements in supplements include making CoQ10 particles smaller for easier uptake by cells. Other formula advances compensate for CoQ10's attraction to fat by making it more water-soluble. CoQ10 is also sensitive to heat, light, and air. So careful manufacturing and handling are crucial to maintain stability. Please visit us online at: and register for our free "Wellness Times" newsletter.
