NT Factor – A Review

nt factor

How is it a 70 year old woman seems to have more energy than me?

How can a 66 year old man run a marathon with 22 year old males lagging behind?

It happens and when I ask how, I am told the main ingredient is perseverance and NT Factor. Now, I understand what perseverance is, but what exactly is NT Factor? This is where research comes in.

Today, I am going to give you a review of NT Factor.

What Is NT Factor?

NT Factor is a supplement that is a blend of phospholipids and glycolipids that work in synchronicity to repair cell membranes. They primarily go about repairing the membranes of the mitochondria which is the device in our cells that provides energy. By repairing the membrane of the mitochondria, it allows our cells to “digest” more nutrients.

So many nutrients never get an opportunity to even reach our cells… NT Factor’s system ensures that what our cells need, our cells get.

But Can’t We Get Phospholipids From Other Products?

Yes, there are a variety of products on the market that offer phospholipids in powder formulations, but what many people do not understand is the process of extracting phospholipids can create an instability.

Phospholipids are already unstable and if the proper extraction process is not used, they will oxidize and be of no help to the mitochondria.

To keep them stable, after extraction, they are wrapped in probiotics and prebiotics and various other nutrients and minerals are added to ensure they are primed to be absorbed once they enter your lower intestine.

The pro and prebiotics ensure your system has a healthy flora and prepared to receive the nutrients.

The phospholipids penetrate both inner and outer mitochondria walls to repair.

Cell Duplication

Cell division occurs naturally every 5 to 6 days. It works like a cloning machine and if a mitochondrial cell is damaged, it will replicate that damage. So essentially, you are losing energy if a damaged cell “clones.”

NT Factor is designed to repair that damage so when cloning begins, you receive cells that are damage free.

Who And How Was NT Factor Developed?

First, it took 25+ years of development and testing to come up with the NT Factor formulation that is making people feel brand new.

The developers are Nutritional Therapeutics, Inc… Hence, the NT. Based in Hauppage, New York, Nutritional Therapeutics has a mission of increasing the health of the world by providing high quality and balanced nutritional formulas to support a variety of health conditions and the overall wellness of our consumers.

Chemotherapy

Clinical trials were performed and found that NT Factor helped reduce the side effects of chemotherapy patients. You can read more about those trials here.

6 Tips On Instilling Good Health And Wellness Practices In Your Children

children

It is something I detest seeing… A small child who noticeably weighs 4 times more than they should come running out of a fast food restaurant carrying a “Joy Meal” (I dare not use the trademarked name) in one hand, and a 64 ounce soft drink in the other.

A part of me wants to run up to the parents or guardians and shake them into the knowledge of what they are doing to their child.

But, I know that isn’t the answer.

But, what we all can do is put as much information in front of the human population and hopefully, these people will see it.

Today, I want to give you 6 tips on instilling good health and wellness practices in your children.

Good Health And Wellness Practices In Your Children #1: Make Sure That The Entire Family Eats One Meal Together Per Day

This isn’t always easy, but it is possible.

We live in an era when people are running ragged and are seldom home. But if you make it a family rule that everyone eats breakfast or dinner together at the family table, you will see a better sense of the healthiness of a home cooked meal compared to the stuff served at restaurants.

Good Health And Wellness Practices In Your Children #2: Be A Role Model

We hear it over and over… Like Father, like Son or like Mother, like Daughter.

It is true, children copy us. So if you exercise regularly; if you eat properly; if you care about your health, the odds are good that your children will follow in your footsteps.

Good Health And Wellness Practices In Your Children #3: Encourage Outdoor Activities And Sports

healthy children

While there is a lot that can be learned via iPads and computers, many children are playing games that have no educational value. And this game playing goes on for hours upon hours.

As parents, we need to set some strict rules on the amount of computer time and instead, encourage our children to go outside and play.

And many parents have also found that when they encourage their child to join one school or non-school sport’s activity, the child gets “hooked” and participates in more.

Yes, some of these sports programs can cost money, but keep in mind it is an investment into your child’s health and well being.

Good Health And Wellness Practices In Your Children #4: Washing Hands

Our hands pick up nasty germs from so many places. Anything we touch or handle may carry germs.

  • Door handles
  • Money
  • The trash bags
  • Etc…

Mom’s and Dad’s, get into a habit of asking your children at random times “Did you wash your hands?”

By doing so, you will create a habit of always washing their hands even when they are grown and gone.

Good Health And Wellness Practices In Your Children #5: Walk Instead Of Using Gasoline

Maybe you need to get something from the store, or maybe your child has an invite to a friend’s birthday party… The tendency is to jump in the car, but why not walk if the place is within a mile or so?

As humans, we depend too much on cars and trucks to take us even short distances.

While you are walking with your child, explain to him or her how walking can help relieve pollution and also help us live healthy lives.

Good Health And Wellness Practices In Your Children #6: Physically Exhausting Chores

There are always chores that need to be done around any home. And every child should have their part in doing those chores.

While they may wimper and whine, do not give in. Have them do some of the physically exhausting things like pulling weeds, mowing grass, taking out the trash, etc. These chores can not only help them maintain a strong and healthy body, it also helps them learn to be responsible adults.

And yes, I do suggest rewarding them for their hard work.

Conclusion

Remember that children are the future of humanity. It is our responsibility to ensure they are prepared to face the world. By instilling good health and wellness practices in your children, they will be able to handle the many situations that they may come up against.

I hope this helps you.

Now help out others by sharing this with all your friends and family.

4 Tips On Keeping Your Endocrine Glands Healthy And Happy

endocrine glands

Our bodies are complex. We could consider them finely tooled machines and as such, they need proper care.

One part of our system consists of endocrine glands. These glands work like a messaging system using chemicals. These chemicals are known as hormones that are released from the glands into the human circulatory system to travel to other organs.

The primary glands in the endocrine system are:

  • adrenal glands,
  • pineal gland,
  • thyroid gland,
  • parathyroid glands,
  • pancreas,
  • ovaries,
  • and testes

as well as the hypothalamus and pituitary gland which are neuroendocrine organs that also release hormones.

What you do need to know is each and every one of these endocrine glands play very important roles in your health and welfare. If they are not properly maintained, these glands may stop, slow down or send improper hormones (messages) to other organs causing them to not function correctly.

One expert explained to me that if a person was to put their complete home on an automatic system to control heating, cooling, lights, water, etc…, the messages sent would come from special receptacles inside a main computer bank. We could equate those receptacles to the glands and the messages they send to each unit would be equated to the hormones.

If one receptacle started malfunctioning, you could find it causing chaos with all the other receptacles…

  • The message meant to turn the air conditioning on may start the sprinkler system;
  • a message to fill the washing machine with water turns off the security system;
  • or you come home to your house feeling like an oven at 116 degrees because the system thinks it is too cold.

Just think what all can happen to your body if 1 of these glands is not working properly? And while we think Doctors should be able to “figure it out,” consider the fact that once they know for sure it is a bad gland, they still must narrow down which gland it is.

Not an easy task!

science

Enough of the science lesson…

My goal today is to simply give you 4 tips to keep your endocrine glands healthy, happy and working the way they are intended to.

Endocrine Glands Tip #1: Proper Nutrition

This is by far the top tip in this post.

Each gland needs certain vitamins, minerals and/or nutrients to work properly. But in these days and times, we have found nutrients being erased from many foods. This can come from improper farming, food processing and just plain greediness of food manufacturers.

Each gland has a need for a main nutrient or more…

adrenal – Vitamin C, B Vitamins, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron

pineal – Vitamin D

thyroid – Vitamin D, Selenium, Iodine, Iron and Vitamin A

parathyroid – Same as thyroid

pancreas – All

ovaries – All

and testes – All

While my blog explains a lot about nutrition, I want to say that each person is different. I offer a one-on-one service to develop a nutrition plan that fits you and your lifestyle.

Feel free to contact me here.

Endocrine Glands Tip #2: Little To None

There are 3 things you need to cut down to little or none for healthy and happy endocrine glands:

  1. Sugar
  2. Alcohol
  3. Caffeine

All of these if taken in abundance will drive your hormone balance out of whack.

Endocrine Glands Tip #3: Get Your Omega Fatty Acids

Omega 3s, 6s and 9s are important in that they actually aid in the transportation of hormones produced by these glands. The hormones essentially “hitch a ride” on the Omega bus.

You get these Omega Fatty Acids from fish and other sea foods. If you are not getting enough fish in your diet, I recommend taking a supplement to obtain those Omegas.

This Krill Oil is a great supplement to get your Omega Fatty Acids.

Endocrine Glands Tip #4: Say No To Stress

stress free

Not only does stress harm your endocrine glands, it plays havoc on other organs in your body.

Now I know that as long as we live, there is stress. But what you do with that stress; how you handle that stress is the biggest factor in how it will effect your health and well being.

There are many ways to handle stress, but only some ways that are good for your health.

  • Exercise – which is also needed for healthy endocrine glands.
  • Quality sleep – 7 – 8 hours is optimal.
  • Meditation
  • Have a person to talk with.

Conclusion

Follow these tips please!

Your endocrine glands have so much control over the rest of your body. If your hormones are out of balance, you can gain weight, develop sickness and disease and live a life that is no fun.

I am here for you… Contact me if you need more help with this subject.

I am not a Doctor and by all means, you should see one if you feel you are having issues with any of your endocrine glands. But I do know that if you follow these tips, you are giving those glands a much better opportunity of being healthy and happy.

Walking For Weight Loss – 10 Tips On Burning More Calories

burning more calories

Do you have a walking regiment in your goals to lose weight?

If you do… Great!

Walking is a great way to enjoy nature while still shedding some pounds. But do you see those pounds not disappearing fast enough?

Well, I am here to help!

Here are 10 tips on burning more calories while walking.

Burning More Calories Tip #1: Walk Some Inclines

If you are always on even ground, you are burning less than if you have to go up at some points.

I suggest planning your walk so you have to go up some hills or find some stairs along the way and climb them a time or 2.

If you use a treadmill, most have an incline adjustment. Start with say a 4 or 5% grade and slowly raise it until you get to an 8% grade.

Burning More Calories Tip #2: Pump Your Arms

Moving your arms as you walk will actually entice you to go slightly faster. And naturally, as you go faster, the more calories you will burn.

Burning More Calories Tip #3: Walk Farther

This is essentially a no-brainer. You really don’t have to measure the distance. Use time. If you are walking for 30 minutes, add 10, 20 or more minutes. If you are walking 4 days of the week, add in another day.

You will notice a difference as you add distance.

Burning More Calories Tip #4: Interval Walking

This is a great way to burn calories.

Vary between your normal pace and speed walking. If walking city streets, you could switch between each in blocks. On an open walking course, you may want to use your watch.

Speed walk a distance and then slow down to normal. Your heart rate will slow back down and then speed it up again with a speed pace.

Burning More Calories Tip #5: Add Some Other Exercises Into Your Walk

walking with weight

Integrating exercises like quick jogs, high knees, lunges and butt kicks into your walk will help some of those calories go bye bye.

Burning More Calories Tip #6: Add Some Weight

Just adding a few pounds of weight to your body can really make a huge difference. You could invest in

  • a weighted vest
  • ankle weights
  • or wrist weights

Or if you really wanted to up your game and pretend your in Army basic training, just put 10 – 20 pounds in a backpack.

I think I will stick with the weighted vest.

Burning More Calories Tip #7: Use Walking Poles

It may seem slightly crazy and you may get some “looks,” but using walking poles has become a huge trend in Nordic countries and the people who are using them have noticed big differences in calorie reduction.

You use them as if you were cross country skiing. Experts say that using walking poles helps people burn 25 – 45% more calories than normal walking. This is because you are using more muscles in your upper body.

Burning More Calories Tip #8: Walk-Sprint For Goals

This goes hand in hand with #4 because it is a type of interval walking.

When you see an object in the distance, pick up the walking pace until you reach that object… Speed walk to it!

Just every once in awhile, choose some type of marker and race walk to it.

Calories will hate you for it.

Burning More Calories Tip #9: Get A Walking Buddy

walking buddy

Let’s admit it, friends can be the best coaches at times… We tend to push each other to get the best from both.

“Oh c’mon, let’s walk another mile,” or “Let’s see who can walk fastest to the finish.”

Find a friend, co-worker, family member or maybe your dog to be your walking buddy and you will be pushed to go further and faster while having fun the whole time.

Burning More Calories Tip #10: Buy Great Walking Shoes

Some may lead you to believe you need some “Air Jordan’s” or some type of shoe with a lot of cushion.

I regress!

You need to feel the walk and you need to have maximum flexibility in the toe area.

So do your shoe shopping with that in mind.

Conclusion

Follow these tips and watch the calories zoom away as you walk for fun and weight loss.

6 Unhealthy Excuses

unhealthy excuses

Excuses, excuses, excuses!

It seems so many people have excuses which ends in unpleasant situations…

  • Doctor offices
  • Hospitals
  • or Morgues

I’m sorry to be so blunt, but sometimes blunt is the only way to get the attention of humans.

You see, I am talking about excuses people make to not eat right, not exercise and to not keep in healthy shape.

Here are 6 unhealthy excuses that you should stop making and get yourself in a healthy state of life.

#1 Unhealthy Excuses: Obesity Is In My Genes

This is one of the top excuses I have heard people use to explain their own obesity. Just because Grandpa Joe, Aunt Louise and 2nd Cousin Alice are all overweight does not mean they passed the trait to you.

Actually, they probably passed the blueberry pie with whipped cream along with other fat-causing recipes.

Now I suggest you take another look at the family and focus on those who are not obese. How come the gene didn’t pass to them?

It’s time to throw away the genetic excuse along with the pie recipe.

#2 Unhealthy Excuses: I’m Too Tired After Work To Exercise

Okay… You are too tired after work, so why not before work?

Will I now hear a new excuse? It will make me tired for work.

Sorry, but I won’t buy into that. You see, several studies have determined that physical activity will give you more energy.

I just debunked your second excuse, so set your alarm clock earlier and get up and exercise.

#3 Unhealthy Excuses: I Don’t Have Time To Exercise

no time

Let me ask you a question, how much television did you watch this past week? How much Facebook did you do? Or did you play some video games?

If you found time to do any of those things, you can surely find 20 minutes to 1 hour to exercise each day.

#4 Unhealthy Excuses: Because It Is Thanksgiving, A Birthday, St Patrick’s Day Or The Anniversary Of My Great, Great Grandparent’s Wedding

There always seems to be some kind of holiday excuse to eat the wrong stuff. C’mon, just admit you ate that glazed doughnut because your willpower was weak.

Now take a look in the mirror and quit lying to yourself.

You are a beautiful person who needs to lose some weight; and believe me, you look great the way you are, but that obesity is damaging your health.

Please… Please, please realize that all of us want you healthy. So just say no to the brownie and eat some of the carrots and celery instead.

#5 Unhealthy Excuses: I Already Screwed Up, So I’ll Just Go All The Way

I wonder how many times people who are trying to lose weight take that piece of cake, eat one bite and realize, “Hey, I’m on a diet.”

They then say to themselves, “Well, I screwed up! I may as well eat the whole thing.”

Why allow the snowball to roll down the mountain and become an avalanche? Sure, you made one mistake, but you caught it before too much damage is caused. Don’t allow small slips to become major issues.

#6 Unhealthy Excuses: The Scale Must Be Broken

No, the scale is just fine. You just need to get back on track and stop making excuses.

Conclusion

I believe you should see my point by now. The excuses need to stop!

If you slip, just pick yourself up and admit you are only human and get back on the “healthy you bus.”

If you need help… If you need another set of ears to hear and a mouth to keep you moving forward, I would be happy to be your coach. But mind you, I don’t fall for excuses.

Thank you for visiting and have a healthy day!
