4 New Reasons Why Vitamin C is Important

When the cough, sniffles, and aches start, many people will load up on extra vitamin C. Helping boost the immune system is a familiar benefit of the vitamin. But do you know what else vitamin C is good for? Or how much vitamin C you need? Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning that it doesn't build up in body tissues for later use like fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K). Rather, the body uses vitamin C when it needs it and then flushes the rest out. The benefit Continue reading →

Does Whey Protein Help Explain Reductions in Oxidative Stress on Isagenix?

As we’ve long been preaching, chronic oxidative stress breaks down proteins, increases basal metabolic rate, and causes huge fluctuations in hormone release over an extended period of time. These demands on the body can cause premature aging, decrease energy, store fat, and ultimately could lead to the development of chronic disease. The miracle workings of adaptogens and antioxidants at fighting oxidative stress is supported by loads of evidence-based research, and now science is showing that Continue reading →

Cleanse Days Combat Weight Gain and Oxidative Stress

Worried you might eat too much at Thanksgiving or during the holiday season? Following the festivities with a couple of Cleanse Days is an effective way to get back on track by compensating for the extra calories eaten. Results from a study published recently in the International Journal of Obesity show just that. In a randomized trial on 107 middle-aged, overweight or obese women, researchers compared intermittent calorie restriction—similar to Cleanse Days on an Isagenix system—with Continue reading →

Runners on CoQ10 Suffer Less Muscle Damage and Recover Faster

Despite the physical and mental benefits associated with ultra-endurance exercises, such as marathons or triathlons, these exercises do promote inflammation and oxidative stress in the body. There are, however, ways to protect yourself. Supplements of coenzyme Q10 (coQ10) may offset the oxidative stress related to strenuous exercise and reduce later muscle damage, according to a new study. Researchers from the University of Granada of Spain wrote, "The present findings provide evidence that Continue reading →
