Sick of swallowing pills or had enough of chewing gummies? Get the liquid advantage and higher absorption from SBR Nutrition liquid vitamins! It will definitely make you think and feel differently about your daily vitamins!
I enjoy the taste of all three. I have had a few other liquid brands and have not enjoyed them so much. Either taste or consistency was off. I did have a favorite B-12 but, SBR Nutrition is now my go to. I much prefer their mellow cherry flavor. The taste alone is better and I can feel how much more my body reacts to these clean and Vegan friendly liquid vitamins.

I took a daily biotin pill now supplementing with SBR liquid. I love taking care of my body as much as my skin so Biotin is a must! Keep hair growing Healthy. Helps nails not chip and peel. Wonderful to help skin keep looking youthful. Fights fine lines and wrinkles. Looking for energy? Winter is approaching; I need the extra Vitamin D!

Gut Health

How Pre & Probiotics work.

It seems more and more we are hearing about Pre & Probiotics. An daily a new Probiotic supplement is hitting the shelves to help our intestinal health. Although a supplement may be needed. There are plenty of foods that have Probiotics naturally. Try to get your daily meals filled with them.

Here is the difference between the two.

Prebiotics- Carbs that cannot be digested. Food for Probiotics.

Probiotics- The Good or helpful bacteria. Helps control growth of harmful bacteria. Naturally found in the body an can be found in some foods and supplements.

In the mid 90’s people wanted to know more. An doctors started suggesting them to help digestive problems.  

Two major types of Probiotics are: 

Lactobacillus, most common Probiotic found in yogurt and other fermented foods. They say may actually help those who can’t normally digest lactose. 

Bifidobacterium- found in some dairy. May help ease Irritable Bowl Syndrome.

There is also research that may suggest it also helps with skin conditions, urinary health, allergies, oral health, and colds. 

You can Google search and find plenty of foods with Probiotics. Here are a few of my favorites.

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Sauerkraut
  • Wine 
  • Green Olives
  • Pickles
  • Sourdough Bread
  • Cottage Cheese

Always ask your physician before starting supplements. But, a probiotic supplement added to your daily lifestyle may help digestive and bloating problems. Especially if natural Probiotics foods are not your favorite. This could be a way to help your gut and get more Probiotics in your system. Take a look, there usually found in the vitamin aisle. If your having any intestinal or bowl problems ask your doctor about probiotic supplements.

Krilling It!

Heart health is very important to us here at Bean Styled Studio and most American’s do not get the recommend dose of essential Omega’s in our bodies. They do come from plants and animals. Our bodies need healthy fats not saturated fat for many reasons that is why omega is essential. Essential as in we have to have it!ย  However certain omegas can only be made in the body when we eat a healthy diet. Usually consisting of fish and seafood for the most potent in omegas. Having a good balance of omega in our system has been shown to help with cardiovascular health. According to the American Heart Association “Research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids decrease risk of arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats), which can lead to sudden death.ย  Omega-3 fatty acids also decrease triglyceride levels, slow growth rate of atherosclerotic plaque, and lower blood pressureย (slightly).”

After many years of taking a regular Fish Oil and hearing about Krill oil I have taken the time to research the difference between the two. Not to extensively, but enough to say that maybe we should switch to taking the Krill and leaving the Fish oil out to sea.

A recent trip to the Vitamin Shoppe I acquired the Amazing Wellness Fall 2015 Issue at checkout. Which they are FREE by the way and most times I decline. I really enjoyed their magazine and recommend others picking it up and taking a read. It had a Krill article and this is what set me off to take a look into using Krill:

  1. More Potent with omegas 3’s
  2. No fish burps or After taste of fish
  3. Red color of the krill oil pills= Astaxanthin- antioxidant fives red color and prevents oxidation so stays fresh longer. Also boost immunity and overall cell healthy by helping fight free radicals in the body.
  4. Sustainable and Safe- Krill is the largest Bio mass on the planet. Less than 1% of krill are harvested.
  5. So low on the food chain and harvested in the pristine Antarctic waters which has far less risk of contamination of mercury or any other toxins found in the fish oil. An you hear all the time Mercury levels in Salmon.

Journal of the American College of Nutrition said it “reduced inflammation and lessen pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis.”

So to wipe out any contamination you may receive from taking Fish oils, rid any after taste, and to have more potent Omegas especially the omega-3’s take a look into Krill oil. Ask your doctor their recommendations. It seems that the Krill and their powerful omegas are the way to go. Still the best way is a healthy lifestyle of fish and seafood. If your not one to like those types of food, an omega supplement should be a consideration. The MegaRed brand has great reviews. I had no side effects. I was never one to have the fishy taste or burps and still none with this brand for myself so I can’t test that fact for some. You still want a reputable brand so we suggest checking out MegaRed Krill Oil for yourself.

HUGE THANK YOU TO EAS for sending us a box of free goodies!!! Complete Protein Nutrition Shake in Vanilla and a box of Lean 15 Protein Bars in Chocolate and Peanut Butter. Lucky bonus for us both of these were new items! Normally vanilla is not a favorite flavor here at Bean Styled Studio. Some how EAS has created a protein vanilla powder that actually taste and smells like a real vanilla. Mixes great which we already know, EAS is a favored Brand and highly recommended to our clients. This protein powder is great for those protein ball and other snack recipes. Find more recipies ideas with your protein powders and mixes on our Pinterest. Now they just need to create more gluten free/Corn free products. The only reason I say this is because not enough health and lifestyle brands have those people in mind. An although I personally do not have any gluten allergies I do have clients that are. Let’s not forget the Lean15 bars. Delicious taste, a great daytime snack or even after workout snack for extra protein. I love the crunch in protein bars, and the wafer like texture. This is Perfect! An you can’t go wrong with PB and Chocolate.

MP ASSAULTLooking for energy and something to get you through your workout on a stressful or tiring day? Muscle Pharm’s Pre-Workout mix ASSAULT should be added if your looking for some serious Kick to get you energized and going strong your entire workout. Bought this particular brand because we were looking for L-glutamine. It helps metabolize protein, and is an essential amino acid to help build muscle. Also research shows it helps reduce sugar cravings and stress from everyday life. We are diving into more research on Glutamine and other amino acids. So as we go through this jar and try it out look out for more information on Muscle Pharm and glutamine. “This assault seemed to make us sweat more, and kept myself, a personal trainer going through 45 minutes of teaching Pound Class and 60 minutes with a personal client! Exactly what I was looking for!”
