There are a lot of supplements on the market today. When it comes to comparing which ones are the best, it’s not easy to do. Check out this comparison of a few supplements and Enada Co-E1 for treating memory loss, improving athletic performance and reducing symptoms of jet lag.

Supplements That Help Increase Memory: Gingko Bilbao vs Enada Co-E1

Gingko Bilbao

Gingko is a Chinese herbal medicine which comes from the dried leaves of the maidenhair tree. It is made up of flavonoids and terpenoids, which are chemical compounds. Many people believe this supplement will sharpen their concentration and memory. Earlier studies had shown there was a correlation between taking Gingko and improving cognition, but recently those studies have been debunked and now it’s widely believed that Gingko doesn’t help improve memory and concentration.

Enada Co-E1

Enada Co-E1 increases the energy production inside the cells of your body. With increased energy, your cells can relay information to each other quickly. Several studies have shown that the production of adrenaline and dopamine, which are neurotransmitters, are increased within the cells. These neurotransmitters are responsible for cognitive performance, improving memory and cognition.

Supplements That Enhance Athletic Performance: Carnitine vs Enada Co-E1

Carnitine

Carnitine is an antioxidant found in meat and other types of food. People who are healthy don’t have to consume carnitine because their body naturally produces it. Carnitine helps produce energy in the cell’s mitochondria, and in our muscles. Since carnitine is used for energy production within the muscles, it was theorized that it could help improve muscle function, reduce fatigue and boost performance. After 20 years of testing, it has shown that it has no effect on athletic performance.

Enada Co-E1

Enada Co-E1 is the bio-available, antioxidant form of Vitamin B-3. Known as the biological rocket fuel, Enada Co-E1 is essential to the production of cellular energy. It is also involved in basic metabolism processes (which include the breakdown of glucose and fats), and supplies energy to the brain, nerves, muscles, heart and all other organs, helping them to function. For this reason, Enada Co-E1 boosts stamina and endurance, while providing mental clarity and focus. It also helps alleviate drowsiness and increases energy. Enada Co-E1 has been back by studies and been proven to help boost athletic performance.

 

“The Cure” for Jet Lag: Melatonin vs. Enada Co-E1

Jet Lag

 Melatonin

Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in your brain. It is also found some edible plants. Melatonin affects circadian rhythms and promotes drowsiness. Some studies have found that melatonin is effective for preventing or reducing the symptoms of jet lag. This supplement should only be used for a short time period as it has adverse effects from long term use. Also melatonin will cause you to be drowsy during the day, therefore counteracting the beneficial effects it has for jet lag.

Enada Co-E1

Enada Co-E1 increases the cellular production of ATP and facilitates dopamine synthesis, which means it may counteract the effects of jet lag on brain performance, mood, and sleepiness while boosting the immune system. Enada Co-E1 maintains homeostasis and aids in returning you to your built-in circadian rhythms. Research reveals that individuals who received Enada Co-E1 after an overnight flight across time zones performed significantly better on five of eight cognitive and psychomotor tests and experienced less sleepiness than those on the same flight who did not receive Enada Co-E1.

When researching supplements, it is important to remember that even if one claims to do what it says, it may not work in the end. Enada Co-E1 has a trusted brand for over 20 years, with numerous studies proving its effectiveness.

The weather you are experiencing this time of year greatly depends on the region you live in. We are based out of California, and if you have been watching the news you will know we are in the midst of a heat wave. The first day of Summer isn’t until the third week of June each year, but this year you didn’t have to wait until then to start feeling the heat. There are wild fires popping up right and left and constant worry combined with the heat can be detrimental for your body. We want to make sure everyone is taking care of them selves and beating the heat. Heat exhaustion come on quickly. It is important to make sure you are getting proper hydration and nutrition. When your body has enough water, minerals, and antioxidants you’ll function better, think faster and stay healthier. Follow these tips to help you stay hydrated during these heat waves, or save the tips for when we get further into the summer months.
Get Energy
Being in the heat takes so much more out a person no matter what they are doing. Supplements the NADH you are losing doing every day tasks. NADH is biological “Rocket Fuel”. It is the biological form of hydrogen which reacts with the oxygen present in our cells to produce energy, enhance mood and emotional balance, and offset fatigue. Enada is the only company that has FDA approved stabilized NADH supplements. 
Hydration Done Right
  • Although soda, coffee and iced tea may temporarily quench your need for a drink, the sugar and caffeine in these beverages will soak up your body’s water reserves. That means that if you drink nothing but coffee or soda, you’ll end up less hydrated than you think. The best thing you can do for your body is to drink as much clean, pure water as possible. Water is one of the healthiest beverages you can drink, especially in the summertime. If you want to stay hydrated, try to get into good habits like:
  • If you must drink soda, follow any soda or juice drink with a glass of water
  • Limit highly caffeinated beverages
  • Carrying a water bottle with you
Watch Your Sweating
If you find yourself really sweating and losing more water than the norm, your body also needs a steady supply of electrolytes. Electrolytes are minerals that your body uses to normalize pH balance and send signals that regulate your body’s physical activity. Electrolytes can be found in most sports drinks, but they also naturally occur in most fruits and vegetables.
Easy Breezy
Make sure to take the lead of those who spend most of their lives in tropical climates and make outfit choices accordingly. You can really bead the heat by wearing loose, lightweight cotton and linen clothing. Pick clothes that breath and wont hold in the heat. 
Hit the Showers
A really easy trick to beating the heat is to jump in the shower to regulate your body temperature. Before you try to go to sleep or if you just can’t stand how hot you feel jump in the shower and take a cold one. The cold water hitting your chest etc. will bring down your core temperature.

      Cinco de Mayo, for those who may not know means the fifth of May, also known as the Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, national holiday in Mexico in honor of a military victory in 1862 over the French forces of Napoleon III. Cinco de Mayo today has become a day to throw a party and have a little too much to eat and drink, but did you know these facts about today:

      • The holiday celebrates an unexpected victory. The holiday actually celebrates the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The Mexican army won the battle despite being smaller and ill-equipped.
      • Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day. That occurred 50 years prior to the Battle of Puebla. It is celebrated on September 16.
      • Cinco de Mayo is a bigger deal in the United States. In Mexico, the day is observed with political speeches and battle reenactments. Many of the actual celebration and battle re-enactment take place in Puebla.
      • In fact, the world’s largest Cinco celebration takes place in Los Angeles. This year’s Festival de Fiesta Broadway is expected to draw 300,000 people. Cities like New York City, Denver and Houston also throw large parties in honor of the day.
      Celebrations in the United States often extend beyond the actual day to encompass an entire week, with parades and festivals that include music, dancing, and food. If you are a fan of Cinco de Mayo and want to celebrate but don’t want to blow your diet, here are some fit health tips on how to skip calories but not flavor!


      Skip lettuce go with cabbage!
      Cabbage is a more nutritious taco topping than lettuce. Cabbage is filled with antioxidants and is an excellent source of vitamin C, providing roughly one-third of your recommended daily intake in just one cup. A cup of iceberg lettuce, by contrast, provides only about 3 percent of your daily dose.

      As an added bonus, cabbage packs a crunchy bite and comes in a variety of colors, ranging from bright purple to green, that look great on your plate.

      Skip the ground beef, go with fish
      Fish is a leaner protein and full of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and is lower in calories than ground beef. Swapping beef for fish also cuts down on dietary cholesterol.

      Skip store bought, go with homemade
      Yes, making guacamole in your own kitchen takes time, but store-bought varieties are often loaded with preservatives and firming agents, like sodium benzoate and calcium chloride.

      Some mass-produced guacamoles also are surprisingly high in sodium. For example, Trader

       Joe’s Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole contains no fewer than 280 milligrams (or 12 percent of your daily limit) per two-tablespoon serving.

      Mass-produced salsas typically contain processed ingredients (such as tomato paste and dehydrated onions), but the real health downer is the sodium. Just two tablespoons of Tostitos Chunky Salsa, for instance, contains 250 milligrams of sodium, about 10 percent of your daily limit. And who stops at just two tablespoons?

      Pico de gallo (also known as salsa fresca), an easy-to-make mixture of minced vegetables and chiles, offers a similar kick of flavor and spice, but with roughly one-fifth the sodium.

      Skip re-fried, go with whole beans
      Beans are loaded with filling fiber, but they can add sodium and fat when re-fried and packaged in can. Choose whole bean, non-refried, or low-fat canned varieties when you are looking for convenience, or buy dry beans if you have time to make them from scratch.

      We all have things that we need to get done but can’t stand doing, but maybe knowing that you can count everyday household chores as a workout you might think twice. Vacuuming, dusting, cooking, washing windows, these all add up to calorie burners. So take your daily dose of NADH energy booster and get to working!



      Sweeping or Mopping
      Sweeping or mopping requires some physical effort, can help you burn a fair amount of calories as well. While sweeping and mopping, you’ll likely burn between 200 and 300 calories and get a pretty good upper and lower body workout at the same time. Sweeping your floors before you mop will burn even more calories.

      Dusting
      Dust accumulates in everybody’s home and if you’re like most; you probably don’t dust more than once a week. However, dusting a little more often won’t just be good for your health, it will also be good for your waistline. Depending on your weight, you could burn anywhere from 200 to 400 calories per hour while dusting. If you spend just one hour dusting, twice a week, your house is going to be pretty clean and your waistline, trimmer.

      Mowing the lawn
      Use a manual or push mower for maximum calorie burn. Expect to burn about 325 calories per hour.

      Cooking
      You can actually burn several hundred calories during the process of cooking a meal. Putting a frozen dinner in the microwave doesn’t count – but, even preparing a simple meal that takes an hour of preparation can help you burn approximately 200 calories.

      Washing Your Windows
      Window washing is a good exercise for your upper body and core muscles since you’ll likely be reaching and stretching with your arms in an upward motion to clean the tops of windows. Spending only half an hour window washing could easily burn 200 calories, depending on your weight.

      Gardening
      Working in your vegetable and flower garden will help you burn about 250 calories per hour. Enjoy the added bonus of fresh vegetables from your garden, which will benefit your wallet and your waistline.
