  • Getting to Know B Vitamins: Part 2

    by Paula Gallagher | February 6, 2018

    nuts+seedsLast week we touched on half of the B vitamins and what they do. To learn more about B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin) and B5 (pantothenic acid), click here. This week we will look at the remaining four: vitamins B6, B7, B9 and B12.

    B vitamins as a whole are important for converting food into energy levels. In fact, a study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism found that physically active individuals with low levels of B vitamins perform worse during high-intensity exercise than those with adequate levels. The study also found that low levels of B vitamins contribute to a reduction in the body’s ability to repair muscles and build muscle mass. Read more

  • Six Natural Ways to Boost Energy and Weight Loss

    by Neal Barnard, MD, FACC | March 20, 2017

    spinach-white-bean-saladAre you looking for natural ways to boost energy and weight loss? Here are six tips to put into everyday practice:

    1. Fill up with fiber. The average American consumes 15 to 16 grams of fiber a day. We should aim to eat much more, closer to 40 grams of daily fiber. It fills us up with minimal calories. Fiber-packed sources include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lentils, beans and peas.

    Case study: Let’s say you’re traveling and need to grab a bite to eat. If you go to a local diner, you could easily ask for steamed greens and beans, like the Brussels sprouts and lentils dish at the Silver Diner. Read more

  • Pathway MYO-MAG : Energy Support

    by Paula Gallagher | July 8, 2015

    myo-mag_1I recently had a customer email me about how tired she was. Her diet was pretty good, she was sleeping well, and blood work was coming back normal. She eventually tried numerous supplements. The one she had success with was Pathway Myo-Mag.

    Pathway Myo-Mag is a supplement that contains ingredients known to participate in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the body. ATP basically is our energy source and it is in every single one of our cells. One capsule of Myo-Mag contains 100 mg of magnesium and 440 mg of malic acid. Important B vitamins are also included for added energy support.

    It is known that when certain nutrients are not present in adequate amounts within the mitochondria, a vicious cycle can occur in which ATP is not created in amounts sufficient for proper cell function. Insufficient amounts of ATP mean that the B vitamins will not adequately be produced, leading to improper metabolism and further reductions in ATP production. The result: fatigue and  muscle weakness.

  • Breakfast Tomorrow: Healthy Smoothie

    by Paula Gallagher | July 23, 2014

    Mornings in my house can sometimes resemble a carnival. Four people going in four different directions can be very challenging and exhausting. To be honest, many times I find myself sitting at my desk with a rumbling stomach and waning energy by 10:30 am because I haven't had time or completely forgotten to nourish myself. A healthy smoothie can be the answer.

    A few months ago, I decided to make a conscious effort to make a healthy breakfast. About three times a week, I make a healthy smoothie or energy shake. It tastes great, is packed with nutritional goodness, and provides me with energy that lasts me through the morning.

    Another benefit has been that my kids and husband love it. So for those mornings that are extra busy, the smoothie gets poured into a to-go cup and we can have breakfast on the way to school, daycare or work... and no need for a drive-thru!

    I vary what I put in my shake depending on what fruit I have in my fridge or freezer, but the basics are the same.  Read more
