Clinical Use of D-chiro-inositol 

Inositols are signalling molecules found in almost all human tissues with 99% of them being in the myo-inositol form, while the remainder exist as d-chiro inositol. With each form having a particular function, different tissues maintain specific ratios of myo- to d-chiro-inositol based on their associated activity. Myo-inositol is most known for its role in the signalling pathways of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), while d-chiro inositol is most well-known for its ability to increase androgen levels in the ovaries. However, these two versions of inositol have one thing in common: they both play a role in insulin

Making nutrition and supplementation fun for kids

If your kid isn’t getting their essential nutrients (like vitamin D, calcium, B vitamins, etc.) and macromolecules (proteins, fats, carbohydrates and fiber) from food sources, you may need to provide a supplement for them. In other cases, your kid might love healthy food and eat the same foods as parents or caretakers, but if they’re in daycare or school and you want to boost their immune system, you may provide a supplement for that, like probiotics.  Supplementing kids with vitamins, nutrients and probiotics can be challenging when it comes to compliance. Every kid, and their individual tastes, are different. Yes,

Cold & Flu: A Unique and Effective Formula

Every day your immune system is hard at work, defending you from infectious bacteria, viruses and parasites and more. This complex system is made up of a variety of cells and signalling molecules that work together to help keep you healthy. Most of the time you don’t even notice that your immune system is at work. That is of course until pesky microbes slip through the defenses and your immune system goes into overdrive to try to catch up.  In fact, many of the uncomfortable symptoms you experience like fevers, runny nose and sneezing are actually your immune system’s strategies

Back-to-School Family Immunity Boosters

After the fun and sun of summer, back-to-school season is here again. For students, the return to bedtime and homework routines and new academic and social challenges can result in increased stress, combined with the change in environment, meeting and interacting with new people. All together these changes can mean increased exposure and lower our defenses to flu bugs, viruses and other infections, that can spell sick days for the whole family if we aren’t careful. Stacking the Immunity Odds There are some natural and straight-forward ways to ensure your family’s immune system is up to the test of the

benagene: A Novel Molecule for Increasing NAD/NADH Ratios

Recently there is a huge interest in molecule called NAD+, especially in healthy antiaging. Why the sudden interest? First, it isn’t sudden, this interest has been brewing up since the late 1990’s and then more recently when several papers were published which jolted the scientific community into frenzy as to the uniqueness of NAD+ in terms of healthy ageing. Before, we can get into specifics we first need to consider another closely related molecule called NADH and its role in cellular bioenergetics. Back in early 1990, a scientist by the name of Dr George Birkmayer out of Austria was building

Thirty, Flirty and Thriving: Supplements to Optimize your 30s

It’s not surprising that our health focus changes as we age. Cellular aging (ongoing cell division) combined with environmental exposures, genetics and diet and lifestyle choices, all play a role in health outcomes, how we feel and even our appearance. You might notice physical changes after having children or just with time. Your body might look and work great at 30 but at 35+ it’s not uncommon to notice that smile and laugh lines are more prominent. Skin texture can change, hair can become thinner. Our joints might start making more creaking and cracking sounds as we move. And our

The Real Benefits Behind NMIs

What are non-medicinal ingredients (NMIs)? They are the inactive ingredients (also known as excipients) included in natural supplements, such as vitamins and minerals, herbal products, homeopathic preparations, energy drinks, probiotics, and traditional medicines. They are a necessary component for many natural health products (NHPs) as they play an important role in the composition, absorption and delivery of nutrients.  Natural health products can play an important role in metabolism, cellular and tissue health and general well-being, making a high quality formula very important. Some nutrients are difficult to consume in adequate quantities from food sources, resulting in the need to supplement.

Probiotic-3: More than what meets the eye

This is my rebuttal to the article written October 3, 2018 by by Mr. John Brisson, at FixYourGut – his original article can be found here: Everyone is certainly entitled to their own opinion, however this article highlights some of the misinformation regarding the pathogenic potential of strains in AOR’s Probiotic-3. First, let us start with the definition of probiotics – according to the World Health Organization and The International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics, the internationally endorsed definition of probiotics are as “live microorganisms, which when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host”.

The battle for supremacy for hearts, minds, knees, joints, skin and much more! Canadians are looking enviously across the border and wondering when they might get access to CBD, this “magic” cannabinoid molecule touted as a cure-all for so many health ailments. Yet there is already a molecule that has been available to many Canadians (for nearly three years!) which has a far better clinical and safety track-record, and without any of the negative stigma associated with cannabis from which CBD is derived. Let us compare and contract both molecules: CBD PEA Derived from cannabis/ hemp Sunflower lecithin Little research

PEA: Unique topical health benefits

The skin is one of the largest organs in the body and has a variety of cells including: keratinocytes, sebaceous glands, fibroblasts, melanocytes, adipocytes (fat cells) and so on. These cells in turn have a large range of receptors among others, endocannabinoid and related receptors like CB1, CB2, TRPV1, PPAR, COX, opioid, TLR, GRP55, GPR119 etc. Observational reports from the 1990s showed that when cannabis, hashish and other variants of cannabis were abused, there was accompanied skin disorders like hair loss, acne, ageing, dermatitis, dry skin etc. These observations indicated that cannabinoids may modulate these receptors and that using the
