Brilliant Formula of a Brilliant Product – Ionix Supreme

I am a label reader so when a product or anything new is introduced whether it is food, cosmetics, supplements or medicinal I study the labels. I did of course study this product from Isagenix that I take the first thing in the morning called Ionix Supreme. This is only one of the many quality products as part of their packages. It really does make a difference to your energy levels. I take it before I head off on my 27K ride in the mornings and I do believe it makes a difference.

You may or may not be interested but if you are considering this weight loss program it is well worth knowing what you are consuming and its quality.

“Ionix is perhaps the most complex formula from Isagenix. It includes a proprietary trace mineral complex rich in fulvic acid to facilitate the bioavailability of nutrients. Other key biologically active substances are provided via the inclusion of a select group of adaptogens.

The term ‘adaptogen’ was coined by Dr. Israel Brekhman, a famous Russian scientist who is widely recognized as the father of adaptogens. Dr. Brekhman was head of the Institute of Biologically Active Substances and oversaw a team of nearly 1,300 scientists whose job it was to identify natural plant, animal, and marine substances that could boost human performance and support good health.

The institute was based in Vladivostok in the Far East of Russia, primarily because of its proximity to the Primoria region. The Primoria is an extremely hash and remote area about the size of California. It is largely made up of a primordial forest and peat bogs. Many of the adaptogens in Ionix are sourced from this region, including Siberian ginseng, Rhodiola rosea, and schisandra.

Isagenix Co-Founder Jim Coover developed a relationship with Dr. Brekhman in 1991 immediately upon the fall of the former Soviet Union and was responsible for helping introduce the science of adaptogens to the Western world.

When John W. Anderson formulated Ionix Supreme, he also decided to include some adaptogens sourced from India (ashwagandha) and the Himalayas (shilajit). Shilajit is particularly interesting, as it is a mineral substance made up of decomposed forests that were trapped during the shifting of the tectonic plates that formed the Himalayas. It literally oozes out of the cracks of the earth during the spring thaw as the mountains give up their magic.

The unique combination of adaptogens in Ionix helps bring the body’s systems into balance, or ‘homeostasis.’ These adaptogens have also been shown to help normalize body systems and support prevention of the damaging effects of stress. The benefits of adaptogens are well-documented, but the real proof is in the experience. No matter what other nutritional products or wellness strategies you might be following, Ionix Supreme can be a game changer.” — Peta Kelly

Did you know this? I know I did not. I happen to be in New Zealand not so long ago and went to line dancing with my sister-in-law. I was so much fun and I could see the benefits of doing this so am in the process of finding somewhere around here that does it. I was hopeless at it and going left when everyone was going right but I had a laugh and so did they.

5 Things will is great for your brain when you dance

1. Enhance Neuroplasticity A study led by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, was conducted over a period of 21 years and looked at senior citizens 75 years and older.
The study found that some cognitive activities influence mental acuity, but almost none of the physical activities had any effect except for dancing.

Reading – 35% reduced risk of dementia
Bicycling and swimming – 0% reduced risk of dementia
Doing crossword puzzles at least four days a week – 47% reduced risk of dementia
Playing golf – 0% reduced risk of dementia
Dancing frequently – 76% reduced risk of dementia

2. Increase IntelligenceThe essence of intelligence is making decisions. To improve your mental acuity, it is best to involve yourself in an activity that demands split-second, rapid decision-making. Dancing is an example of a fast-paced activity that demands speedy decision-making.

3. Improve muscle MemoryDancers can achieve complex moves more easily when they undergo the process of “marking”—walking through movements slowly and encoding each movement with a cue.
It was concluded that visualizing movements and “marking” can help improve muscle memory. This type of visualization and marking, learned through dance, can also be used across a variety of fields to optimize performance.

4. It will boost your memory and slow down aging. – As you get older, brain cells die and synapses become weaker. Nouns, like names of people, are harder to remember because there is only one neural pathway that leads us to this stored information.

If you work on learning new things, like dance, you can work on building different mental routes and many paths. So if one path is lost as a result of age, you have an alternative path that you can use to access stored information and memories.

5. It will help prevent dizzinessHave you ever wondered why ballet dancers don’t get dizzy when they perform pirouettes? Research suggests that through years of practice and training, dancers gain the ability to suppress signals from the balance organs in the inner ear that are linked to the cerebellum.
If you suffer from dizziness, then making time in your schedule for any form of dance is a good way to address this problem. Dancing of any kind will help with dizziness so you don’t have to be a ballet dancer.

 

So Lets go Dancing. Cause “If you don’t do different nothing will change”

2. Phone ElbowHolding our phone to our ears causes decreased blood flow to our elbow. Pressure to this area can damage the cubital tunnel a channel which allows the ulnar nerve (funny bone) to travel over the elbow and down to your hands. The solution to this is to use a hands free headset.

3.Text NeckOur heads weigh four to five Kilo and angled about 30 degrees while reading a smartphone it increases the head weight to about 18kg’s putting an increase of pressure on the neck.
Rachael Lancaster of Freedom back Clinics in the UK suggests taking screen breaks and looking straight ahead while tucking the chin towards the neck every few minutes. Rotating the shoulders with your arms by you sides can also help but sitting up straight while texting and holding the phone a little higher is your best bet.

4. A study done by a University of Waterloo in Canada found that the less time we spend on our phones the better the powers of cognition and analytical skills become. suggestion to alleviate this is use your memory power first before heading of to the Google site.

5. CancerApparently according to ‘The Victorian Government better health channel’ the current international consensus is that mobile phones don’t cause cancer or promote the growth of existing tumors. This is probably arguable by some institutions or groups but who am I to disagree.
