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.

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.

Enada NADH: Allergies

 

Spring time is the best! It is when everything wakes up and starts blooming after the long dead winter. It is simply beautiful, but anyone who suffers from seasonal allergies knows that springtime can be both a blessing and a curse. The rising pollen counts herald unpleasant reactions such as congestion, itchy eyes, sneezing and headaches. Many seek limited relief from over the counter allergy preparations that have unwanted and unnecessary side effects, more natural remedies may alleviate symptoms without the unpleasant side effects.

While allergies can range from mild to severe, there are some supplements that can offer sufferers relief.

Butterbur

The herb appears to work as an inflammation inhibitor, which blocks some chemicals that trigger swelling in the nasal passages.

Some research shows that an extract of butterbur root (Ze 339) are just as effective at relieving nasal symptoms as antihistamines like Zyrtec and Allegra. Butterbur has the advantage of not causing sleepiness, a common side effect of antihistamines.

You should not eat raw, unprocessed butterbur root. Look for brands of specialized butterbur supplements that are labeled UPA-free; a certain percentage or milligrams of the helpful compound petasin may also be mentioned. Keep in mind that experts aren’t sure about the safety of using any butterbur supplements in the long term.

Phleum pratense

A few studies have found that a sublingual tablet made from pollen extracts from Phleum Phleum pratense can reduce some pollen allergy symptoms, such as eye irritation, in people with asthma, as well as help decrease symptoms in people suffering from hay fever. It also allowed people to reduce the dose of their allergy medicine.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine, helping to reduce nasal secretions and inflammation. 

Luckily, this vitamin and the flavonoids occur together in many foods, such as berries, plums, citrus fruits, peppers and brcocoli. Another option is to take extra vitamin C supplements during allergy flair-ups.

Echinacea and Goldenseal
An Echinacea and Goldenseal combination may help keep allergies in check. Echinacea is anti-viral; Goldenseal is anti-bacterial and soothes the mucous membranes.

Both herbs help to support immune response, which often becomes compromised due long-standing allergies. An Echinacea and Goldenseal combination may also be effective for treating, as well as preventing sinusitis.

We have talked about how NADH has helped athletes be faster, stronger, better, improve times and results during workouts. NADH supplements also provide faster recovery. Mojo, is here to help you through your workouts, and here are some other remedies to help you feel better after. 
If you are just starting a new exercise program, or just changing up your current gym routine, having muscle soreness is inevitable. While over-the-counter pain relievers are effective, they can be hard on your body over time and you may prefer using a natural form of pain relief. While some natural pain relievers are well known, here are some that aren’t quite as well known.
Epsom Salt
Epsom salt, is a natural muscle relaxer and anti-inflammatory. Add a cup or two of Epsom salt to a hot bath and soak for as long as possible. Daily soaking baths help shorten healing time so pain ends sooner, Epson salt is also good for achieving soft skin.
Herbs
Herbs such as peppermint, cayenne and ginger are ingredients often found in pain-relieving creams. These herbs have anti-inflammatory properties and ease pain while. They also have a warming property to them that loosen tight muscles. Be careful when applying herbs with this warming property, application in sensitive areas can cause burning sensation.

Movement


If you’re stiff and sore, don’t stop moving! If you spend the day you are sore not moving around you will only become more stiff. Get moving, do some gentle stretching and go for a walk. If your muslces are tensed up and allowed to not have to stretch out it will just stay tensed up. 

Lavender Oil
Lavender is a popular remedy for muscle pain relief. It has been used as a massage oil for thousands of years. Its cell regenerating and anti-inflammatory properties are well-documented, and it can be applied to the skin undiluted, unlike many essential oils. Its fragrance is well-known for its relaxation and sleep-inducing properties.

National Garlic Month

April is National Garlic Month, garlic has so many benefits, it is not just for adding flavor to your favorite dishes. Garlic is unique, with its white compound bulb encasing many small cloves in papery sheathes. Garlic has a distinctively pungent taste and smell, and may come fresh, dried; or as an extract, powder, oil, or tablet.

Antibacterial and Antiviral
Garlic is most well-known for its antibacterial and antiviral properties. They help control bacterial, viral, fungal, yeast and worm infections. Fresh garlic is thought to play a role in preventing food poisoning by killing bacteria like E. coli, Salmonella enteritidis, etc.

Immune Booster
Garlic is rich in manganese, vitamin B1, B6 and C; as well as phosphorus, selenium, calcium, potassium, iron and copper. Studies have been conducted showing that garlic helps improve stress and calm, which also aids in keeping your immune system strong. 


Combat allergies
Garlic is known to have anti-inflammatory property. It can help the body fight against allergies. The anti-arthritic property of garlic is due to diallyl sulphide and thiacremonone. Garlic has been show to improve allergic airway inflammation (allergic rhinitis). Raw garlic juice may be used to immediately stop the itching due to rashes and bug bites.

Reduce weight
Garlic may help to regulate the formation of fat cells in our body. Pre-adipocytes are converted into fat cells (adipocytes) through inflammatory system activity. The anti-inflammatory property of 1, 2-DT (1, 2-vinyldithiin) found in garlic may help inhibit this conversion. This may help prevent weight gain.

Recipe Enhancer
Not only is garlic beneficial to health, it can add zest to a variety of foods. The best way to enjoy garlic’s health benefits is to eat it raw, or close to raw. A temperature above 140F destroys the allicin, so it is best to add it at the very end of the cooking process after the dish has been removed from the source of heat.


The best news is that garlic is also very inexpensive! So pick some up today and enjoy Garlic Month!

Welcome to another Tuesday; we received an email from a new customer just yesterday, who began taking NADH for energy and found it helped another problem they were having! Read below to hear the story!

“In 2002, I was told that I had symptoms of Sjogren’s, which includes severely dry eyes. When I wake up in the morning, before I can open my eyes I have to drown them in wetting solution then slowly and carefully pry them open to not damage my corneas.
6 weeks ago I started taking a 20 mg “Enada Mojo” sublingual, the only variation in my life that could account for a change in my condition. One recent morning I woke up, shocked that I simply opened my eyes because they were not glued shut. And a further surprise was that I didn’t have to use eye drops throughout that day. Now, a week later my eyes are generally fine in the morning, which amazes me.”

Asparagus is nutrient rich, low in calories and a good source of dietary fiber, not to mention it is so good tasting! These things make asparagus for weight loss a good choice. Any weight loss program should include the addition of dietary fiber as it helps to reduce food intake by creating a sense of fullness and stabilizing blood sugar.

Asparagus contains asparigine, a natural diuretic that helps to remove waste and excess fluids from the body, preventing water weight gain, and contributing to the breakdown of fat in the body.

  • Asparagus also has a carbohydrate called inulin that stimulates healthy bacteria inside the large intestine, and healthy bacteria helps with digestion.

  • Asparagus is a good source of vitamin A which aids in promoting healthy eyes and clear vision.

  • It contains compounds that will help to keep your heart healthy.

  • This green veggie is full of folate and energizing B vitamins. 

  • Other nutriends in asparagus include, vitamin C, K manganese, and iron.

  • Asparagus is full of fiber to help aid in promoting healthy digestion.

  • Asparagus boots immunity. 

It is time to talk about our latest obsession: natural flavored water. Now we don’t feel the need to lecture about how bad sports drinks, soda, and other “fruit” juices are, there are enough articles on the internet that can explain the dangers for you. We just want to highlight the joys and benefits that come with making your favorite flavored water at home.

We have a Brita Water Filter Pitcher because the water from the tap, at least here in California, is not great. No point in adding to all the water bottle pile up,the Brita Water Filter Pitcher works well and makes the water have a nice crisp flavor.

Flavored water can be subtle or packed with the flavors infused into it. It all depends on what you want to use and how long you let it sit or seep.



What is needed:

Fruit: whatever kind you like (except bananas, too mushy). Make sure it’s good and ripe for maximum sweetness and flavor, especially if using berries. The most popular flavored waters use citrus. 
Fresh vs. frozen fruit. When in season, use fresh fruit. If out of season, use frozen, frozen is picked at the peak of ripeness.

Herbs: Many herbs are a surprising complement to fruit flavors. Mint, basil, rosemary, sage, thyme, lavender, and tarragon.

Something to put it in: We use mason jars, the larger the better, primarily because they look nicer and keep it colder, but any 2 quart pitcher will do. 

Amazing photo credit goes to: The Yummy Life
Here are some amazing pictures from a fellow flavored water enthusiast over at The Yummy Life blog.

Here are some of our favorite combinations!

Raspberry Lime: Start with 2 limes; with your hands, squeeze the juice into the jar, then throw in the squeezed lime quarters. Add how ever many raspberries you would like. Take a spoon, preferably wood, and press the ingredients down to release some of the juices (don’t pulverize the fruit). Fill the jar with ice, then add water to the top. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.

Tip: You can also add mint leaves to this one for an extra flavor. 

Mint, Cucumber, Lime: slice up 1/2 a cucumber, 1/2 a lime squeeze the juice into the jar, then throw in the squeezed lime quarters,1/4 cup fresh mint leaves. Take a spoon, preferably wood, and press the ingredients down to release some of the juices (don’t pulverize the fruit). Fill the jar with ice, then add water to the top. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.

Strawberry, Lemon Baisl: 1/2 cup sliced strawberries, 1/2 a lemon, sliced, 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves. Take a spoon, preferably wood, and press the ingredients down to release some of the juices (don’t pulverize the fruit). Fill the jar with ice, then add water to the top. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.

Watermelon Mint: 1 cup cubed watermelon, 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves. Take a spoon, preferably wood, and press the ingredients down to release some of the juices (don’t pulverize the fruit). Fill the jar with ice, then add water to the top. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.

Health Tip! Mint: Mint leaves are loaded with antioxidants and keep stomach cramps and acidity at bay. They have anti-inflammatory properties, and mint juice acts as an excellent skin cleanser.

At Home Cellulite Cures!


Cellulite seems to be one of those problems that plagues many women. We all seem to have some, or will have some at one point or another, so lets talk about it.
Magazines like this one pop up everywhere, its not pretty. Many sources have concluded the dimpled appearance of cellulite occurs due to problems or an imbalance of the connective tissue and fat in a person’s body. It is speculated that hormones, diet, lifestyle and genetics all play a role but there are no sureties. While those who are overweight tend to have a higher chance of getting cellulite, many thin women complain of it as well.


Here are 4 natural remedies we have tried or have done research on from trusted sources. They should all help balance the connective tissue/fat in the body and address the many possible causes.


Dry Brushing

Dry brushing is as an all-natural and safe remedy for cellulite. In addition to potentially ridding the area of cellulite, there are many health benefits associated with this practice.This is one remedy that there may not be any scientific evidence that it works but that there is a lot of anecdotal support for. This can include promotion of circulation. It also has exfoliating benefits for the skin, by sloughing off dead skin cells to enhance the overall appearance. Not to mention it feels great and helps stimulate blood and lymph flow in the body.

Dry skin brushing effectively opens up the pores on your skin. This is something you can and should be doing daily, even twice a day. Your skin should be dry, so the ideal time is in the shower before you turn on the water. Just a reminder, don’t get the brush wet.

You should only brush towards the heart. Making long sweeps, avoid back and forth, scrubbing and circular motions. Start at your feet, moving up the legs on both sides, then work from the arms toward your chest. On your stomach, direct the brush counterclockwise. And, don’t brush too hard: Skin should be stimulated and invigorated but not irritated or red.

Type of brush: The bristles should be natural, not synthetic, and preferably vegetable-derived. The bristles themselves should be somewhat stiff, though not too hard. Look for one that has an attachable handle for hard-to-reach spots, if necessary.

Coffee Scrub

Coffee scrubs can be beneficial in reducing cellulite as well. The massage and exfoliation benefits skin by stimulating blood/lymph flow and the caffeine in the coffee has a tightening effect. The internet has many recipes for coffee scrubs and wraps working for reducing cellulite and loose skin, and like the other remedies, it is at least worth a try.

You will need:
1/4 cup coffee grounds
3 tablespoons sugar or brown sugar
2-3 Tablespoons of melted coconut oil

Combine the ingredients to create a paste-like consistency (note that it will harden if cooled if you are using unrefined coconut oil). Store in a glass jar. Massage in to skin for several minutes using firm pressure and wash as usual. Use 2-3 times a week. Results should be visible within a couple of weeks.

Omega-3s

There is some evidence that consuming enough Omega-3 fatty acids and fat soluble vitamins will help reduce cellulite over time. Another theory is that consumption of trans-fats and the “wrong” kind of fats leads to an imbalance of fatty acids that smooth skin and tissue. Either way, Omega-3s and fat soluble vitamins are important for many other functions in the body, so it won’t hurt to try it!

Balance Hormones

It seems that many sources agree that hormones play a huge role in cellulite formation this is one reason why women typically get it more often then men. Working toward proper hormone balance can help reduce cellulite. Even if it doesn’t get rid of cellulite, balancing hormones helps in so many other ways that it is worth working on!

Meatless Monday


It is a sure thing that if you are on any kind of social media outlet online, you will have heard of Meatless Mondays. This is a popular trend that took over the blogging world. Meatless Monday is a non-profit initiative of The Monday Campaigns Inc. The program follows the nutrition guidelines developed by the USDA. Healthy Monday encourages Americans to make healthier decisions at the start of every week. Meatless Monday began in 2003, launched in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public HealthMeatless Monday say they are now active in 29 countries and growing because every nation can bring its unique culture, customs and cuisine to the table in meat free and vegetarian dishes. It quickly became popular in the states and in May, 2009, Ghent, Belgium, became the first non-U.S. city to go meatless. Shortly thereafter, Paul McCartney introduced the U.K. to Meat-Free Mondays.

They have numerous studies that show skipping meat one day a week is good for you, great for your nation’s health, and fantastic for the planet. On average, Americans consume 8 ounces of meat per day; 45% more than the USDA recommends. Going meatless one day a week can reduce the risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. It can also help limit people’s carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel. 


There are now a number of restaurants that participate in meatless Monday, providing meatless menus and highlight meatless options on Mondays.

Like mentioned before, the blogging world has fallen in love with Meatless Mondays. Do a simple search on the internet and there are a million meatless recipes now.

The owner of our company came in this morning and declared that today is to be the day that we let go. The day we forgive and forget. Today is the day we choose to be stronger than the “drama” in our lives and choose to make life better.


He wrote on our whiteboard this quote:

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

Mahatma Gandhi



He is a very health conscience and passionate man. So I couldn’t help but use his passion and determination as inspiration for today’s post. I mean it was literally the first thing he declared when he passed my office this morning. Our business mission is to develop and market safe, reliable, effective products, which will improve the quality of life for all people, our wish goes beyond our supplements and we dream of a world with overall happiness and wellness.
I think that we all can think of someone that has wronged us and it isn’t easy to carry anger and hurt. To completely let go of something painful and forgive the person who may or may not have realized what they did is a hard thing to do. It is easy at times to be convinced that the person who hurt did it with full intention and cruelty. Feeling no compassion; just unadulterated pain and rage.
This is usually not the case however. Generally no one is purely bad, and everyone carries pain that influences their decisions. This doesn’t condone their thoughtless, insensitive, or selfish decisions, but it makes them easier to understand. After all, we’ve all been thoughtless, insensitive, and selfish at times. Usually, we have good intentions. After doing research we have come up with ways to let go and reasons to forgive, to forget, and to heal.


Time


We have all heard it but it is the truth. If you can’t move on right now don’t beat yourself up. You do not want to keep thinking of the past. If you don’t feel forgiving, you can at least not act on anger and count that as a triumph. Remember that we are all doing the best we can at the time. Don’t force it. Yes, by all means set goals and take steps in the right direction, but don’t disregard the baby steps, these steps are your life’s story. Let go of all the needless trying and let yourself take these steps peacefully and mindfully. When you let go of it, you get over the anger/bitterness that you felt and it clears the path for forgiveness. Eventually forgiveness will come if you welcome it.

Get it Out

Write a brutally honest, emotionally raw letter telling them how much they have hurt and angered you. Or write about everything that is bothering you and how you feel at the time. Then read it, hopefully it will bring out some emotion and can help you sort your feelings. Then tear it up, think about the fact that you are not that hurt and that anger. It is fleeting, just like everything else. Let the letter carrying your hurt and disappointment disappears into the air, you can let it go.
Hopefully you will come to the realization that no one ever gets to the end of their life and thinks, “I wish I stayed angry longer.”

Be a little Selfish


Remind yourself to forgive not for them but for you and that it’s easier to forgive than to hang on to so much anger, hurt and betrayal. If you have done all you can do and they choose to still be hateful or hurtful, just do what you need to do and forget about them. Remember you. Working on a better you is more fulfilling than hanging on. Let it all go and hold on to your growth and kindness instead. If you train yourself to consistently be more loving in thoughts and actions, your positive energy will attract more positive results into your current reality.
Be unlike the person or situation that hurt you. Let go and grow past your pain. Carry on living well in a way that creates peace in your heart. The energy you would spend reliving a situation can be better spent creating an amazing future for yourself.

Don’t be so hard on yourself
Let go of the need to forgive every mistake.”Mistakes are the growing pains of wisdom.” We all make mistakes, they just need to be accepted, not forgiven. There is an obvious shift in your heart and mind that happens when you go from feeling hurt and upset to peaceful and loving, but it’s not necessarily forgiveness that’s taking place, it’s just the realization that there was nothing to forgive in the first place. Perfection doesn’t exist. Forgiveness is oftentimes the simple realization that there is nothing that actually needs to be forgiven.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! If you found yourself in a rush this morning forgetting to wear green. Don’t be stressed, just print out these free no pinch zone signs here! Then hang them in your office, house, class room, wherever pinching is a possible threat! 


To celebrate St Patrick’s day we have complied 5 fun facts about St. Patrick! And just because wearing green slipped your mind that doesn’t mean that you can get away with not eating green. All you need to do is whip up a quick green drink, special St. Patrick’s Day recipe below!

1. St. Patrick wasn’t Irish.
St. Patrick wasn’t Irish, and he wasn’t born in Ireland. Patrick’s parents were Roman citizens living in modern-day England.

2. Why is St. Patrick’s Day celebrated on March 17th? 

St. Patrick died on March 17, 461 AD.

3.Green has not always been the color associated with St. Patrick’s Day 

Hard to believe, but St. Patrick’s color was blue. The Order of St. Patrick, established in 1783, selected blue as its color because dark green was already taken. Green became popular with the 1798 Irish Rebellion when wearing a clover on a lapel became a sign.


4. The Shamrock is not the symbol of Ireland. 
The shamrock is a popular Irish symbol, but it is not the symbol of Ireland. As early as the medieval period, the harp has appeared on Irish gravestones and manuscripts. It is the only country to have an instrument as their symbol.

5. St. Patrick used the shamrock to preach about the trinity.
Many claim the shamrock represents faith, hope, and love, or any number of other things but it was actually used by Patrick to teach the mystery of the Holy Trinity, and how three things, the Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit could be separate entities.


Bonus Fact: Your odds of finding a four-leaf clover are about 1 in 10,000.

It’s pretty easy to do. Pick your oil, our team member here uses Organic coconut oil, but any vegetable based oil (sesamesunflower, olive) will work. Coconut oil also has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. To do it you simply put anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon of oil, depending on how much you can handle having in your mouth, and swish it around for 15-20min (no more than 20). It may sound like a long time, but if you do it while cleaning or surfing the internet it goes by fast. If you feel like your mouth is fulling up, just spit some of it out and keep going. 


Pull the oil through your teeth and make sure NOT to swallow it. Once you start the process, the oil fills up with bacteria (which is what you’re trying to get rid of), so you don’t want to swallow it. After 20 min just spit out the oil into a plastic baggy or directly into the trash. Don’t spit it down the drain cause the oil will solidify and really clog the plumbing pipes.

Our team member has been doing it for about a month now and she says: “My teeth are so much whiter, which isn’t way I even tried it so its a great benefit.The best result of all for me is I suffer from TMJ and by doing this my jaw pain has decreased! When I first tried it I spit the oil out as soon as I put it in my mouth. It freaked me out, but I kept trying and by the third day I was used to the feeling I could do it for the full 20min no problem. I went to the dentist recently and I had the best appointment I have every had. My family has a history of bad teeth, even though I brush and floss regularly, I have never gone to the dentist without multiple cavities. This time when I went I only had one! I am not a medical professional. I just researched the method, tried it, and saw that it worked for me first hand.”

To keep on with the theme of March being National Nutrition Month, we interviewed Olympian Shevon Stoddart to find out what she eats, how she stays fit, and what keeps her going. Not only does Shevon have a great athletic body, she is a multi-talented woman, she is an outstanding 400-meter hurdler as well as a singer and songwriter. She was born in Kingston, Jamaica. At the early age of 5, she moved to Uniondale, New York. Her track career started in middle school, which by 9th grade, Shevon Stoddart was ranked #3 in the state of New York in the 400meters. The 400 intermediate hurdles was introduced to Shevon in the 10th grade were she became a 2-time State Championship. She went on to make her first Olympic team in 2004 as a junior in College and made her first World Champion team in 2005.

We here at Co-E1 are so excited about your success and to hear about how your training is going for the upcoming Olympics. You are obviously in great shape and with this month being national nutrition moth we thought we could ask you about your eating habits.

 I’m sure many people would like to know your daily eating routine. What do you generally like to eat for your meals and snacks through out the day?
For breakfast I generally eat oatmeal, cereal, or 2 waffles (low calorie) and fruit.

I always pack my lunch so that I have something to eat right after training. This would consist of an sandwich (typically tuna or turkey), fruit, a small serving of potato chips and bottled water. I don’t drink fizzy drinks or juice, they have too much sugar. I try to get all my sugars from fruit. 

Snacks would be something like a protein shake, granola bar, or a peanut butter and jam sandwich. 

I prepare dinner around 6pm which would be chicken, fish or a Turkey dish with lots of veggies on the side. I rarely eat red meat.

Health Tip! You can see that she has protein with every meal. Protein gives energy and helps to repair and build tissues, muscles, skin, bones, cartilage and blood. Plus, for those of us who would like to improve the look of our nails and hair, we must consider our protein intake since both hair and nails are basically made from protein.

What is your Motivation to stay in shape?
Winning Gold



Where do you get your talents from?
For running, my dad, Zoeth Stoddart. He ran the 400m and 800m and ran 1:46 for 800m. My dad could also sing a little bit but I always just had a love for singing and entertaining.
I always wanted to do talent shows and sing at weddings. I started singing in my mum’s kitchen. She is a hair stylist and the kitchen is where she used to do her clients’ hair.

Have you ever been heavy/overweight? And what are your struggles in your healthy lifestyle?
I have never been over weight, I have always been petite and because I have small body frame and I burn fat quickly, I have to make sure I’m actually eating enough food so that I have fat to burn and not  burn into muscle. My workouts are pretty intense, so I have to prepare my body to endure. 

In what ways has Co-E1 ENADA products helped you?
I use co-e1 everyday before,during and after training. I love it because it’s natural it has improved my reaction time and it gives me a clean boost before my workouts. It is help my muscles recover and keeps my energy levels sustained throughout my workouts. It has other health benefits as well that I like. 
What are your thoughts on fad diets?
I do not diet. I don’t believe in diets. I believe that people should just learn to eat healthy and control portion size. I get hungry every 3 hours so I tend to eat 5-6 smaller meals a day.

Health Tip! As long as you choose the right foods and watch portion size, eating smaller meals through out the day can help you lose weight and keep you energized. But it is not for everyone, especially if you have trouble controlling the amount you eat, or if you don’t have time to plan and prepare your healthy snacks and meals
Your favorite healthy treat?
I love Sweets, so my healthy treat would be some yogurt and fruits. 


Are you most of your friends into healthy eating/living? We feel like it’s often easier to succeed when your friends are healthy too.
Yes, most of my friends eat healthy and workout to keep a healthy lifestyle.  I surround myself with positive people and they always come to me if they ever need advice on works and diet.

Health Tip! If you have a real and tangible like-minded social group, you are much less likely to be affected by the artificial ones created by advertisers, marketers, and technology. If you want to get healthy, hang around other healthy people and others striving to be healthy.
Quick, easy healthy recipe?
I love to cook, but one of the easiest and healthy meals to prepare is spaghetti with meat sauce and side salad.
What is your cheat meal, how often do you indulge?
I love Pizza. I may have pizza twice a month.  
What is your Weekly workout schedule?
I workout 6 days a week and I lift weights 2-3 times a week. I’m on the track for 2 and half hours and Weight room for 1 hour. I also do ab crunches, at least 500 every night before bed. It’s important for me to keep my core strong.
