Abundant Health Center Partners with Ben Stiller and VitaSource

Monday, September 27th, 2010

I got one of the greatest phone calls today. A very dear and long time friend of mine, Matt Harris (Director of New Business Development for VitaSource), called me and asked me if our business, Abundant Health Center, would like to partner with Ben Stiller and VitaSource to help in the relief efforts for Haiti…how could I say no? I am pleased to announce that Abundant Health Center will now be carrying VitaSource’s – Supreme Greens with MSM Powder. In our partnership with VitaSource, through the end of the year a portion of all sales will go to the Haitian Relief Effort. I am honored that our small company was asked to take a part in this. To Greg Geremesz – Founder of VitaSource – to the amazing Matt Harris and to Mr. Ben Stiller, I say thank you. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to give back so that we can help make a difference.

Yours In Health!

FAQ’s Regarding Enzymes

Friday, September 24th, 2010

What are enzymes?

Enzymes are found in every cell of every living plant and animal, including humans. Enzymes are biocatalysts; which means that they either begin a reaction or cause a reaction to speed up. Without enzymes life would not exist.

How do enzymes work?

Enzymes work by virtue of their shape. An enzyme molecule can be compared, in shape at least, to many short strings of pearls (amino acids) strung together. This long string folds in on itself as certain sequences of amino acids (pearls) are more attracted to each other than to other sequences, thus giving the enzymes a specific shape. At one point on the surface of this string of pearls there exists something, which looks like a keyhole. This is called the “active site” on the enzyme. When matched with its specific coenzyme (a vitamin, mineral, or trace element) this “lock” has the exact inverse contour of the “key” which is contained in the molecule of the enzyme’s “substrate” (the molecule that the enzyme wants to transform into a different molecule). When the substrate appears, it inserts the “key” into the “lock.” The molecular structure of the substrate is transformed into a different molecular structure and both enzyme and the newly transformed molecule go on their merry ways.

What is a digestive enzyme?

A digestive enzyme breaks down the proteins, fats and carbohydrates in food during the digestive process allowing the body to better utilize the food you eat.

What is a proteolytic enzyme?

The proteolytic enzyme digests protein. Some examples of proteolytic enzymes are protease, serrapeptase, bromelain, and papain.

What is a lipase enzyme?

Lipase enzymes digest fat.

What is an amylase enzyme?

Amylase enzymes digest carbohydrates.

What is systemic enzyme therapy?

Systemic enzyme therapy is utilizing enzyme supplementation to increase the enzymes throughout your body to assist in restoring the body to health.

Are enzymes considered “anti-inflammatory drugs”?

Proteolytic Enzymes are considered anti-inflammatory agents.

How long does it take before you notice a change from taking enzymes?

It really depends on the individual’s physiological make-up. Everyone is different. Testimonials from some of our customers reported positive effects ranging from 3 days to 2 weeks. Taking the right activation dosage is critical to the success of the product. Being consistent with your regimen is also paramount to helping you achieve the outcomes you have laid out for yourself.

Are there any side effects at all with your product?

We currently have no documented evidence of any adverse side effects based on the use of enzymes. You should not take this product or begin any exercise or supplementation program without the consent of your physician.

Are there any compatibility issues with other nutraceuticals?

No. In fact, since vitamins are coenzymes and minerals are cofactors to enzymes, enzymes are needed in the body for them to be able to have their full effect. In addition, the vitamins and minerals assist the enzymes. Thus, systemic enzyme use enhances the effect of other supplementation programs.

Diabetes and Enzymes

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

According to the scientific community, the endocrine glands, especially the pituitary, adrenals, thyroid and pancreas, control the sugar level in our bodies. The pancreas secretes insulin and insulin activates the movement of glucose to leave the blood and enter the cells. Insulin also stimulates the liver and muscle cells to convert glucose to glycogen, which is a carbohydrate and the main storage compound of sugar in the blood. Cellular uptake and utilization of glucose begins with the binding of insulin to the cell surface receptors. Normally, in a healthy person, the cells are capable of sensing the binding of insulin to the cell receptors on their surface. The problem arises when the cell loses its ability to sense this binding of insulin on its surface. In an attempt to overcome this decreased sensitivity, the body will secrete an ever-increasing amount of insulin, which may lead to various levels of metabolic problems. Various names have been applied to this resistance, such as: Syndrome X, Metabolic Syndrome, and Insulin Resistance Syndrome (IRS). Clinical signs of insulin resistance may be characterized by very high cholesterol and triglyceride levels along with glucose intolerance, excessive thirst, dizziness, increased urination, high sugar intake, and high starch intake. All of these should be checked along with the glucose level.

Evidence shows that diet can be very effective in reducing IRS. Diets high in carbohydrate starches should be avoided, or any food that is white, such as potatoes, white bread, and sugar (including products containing sugar). Research has shown vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients will improve insulin sensitivity for the stability and improvement of glucose blood levels. Diabetes is a growing concern for everyone in the health industry. Diabetes has been on the increase for several years and the rate of people being diagnosed with diabetes is staggering. A wise choice would be: GlucoMetabolic Plus™, to help regulate glucose, Vitazyme™ for the needed nutrients, Digestive™ (multiple enzymes) for digestion, watching the starch intake and exercise.
