Get Stronger, Live Longer with these Two Essential Nutrients!

While there are hundreds of physiological variables you could investigate and thousands of supplements you could take, measuring and optimizing your vitamin D and Omega 3 levels will dramatically improve both the quality and the quantity (length) of your life.

What’s the catch? You can’t randomly take any fish oil or vitamin D3 supplement.  You need to take a simple, yet scientific, approach to the process in order to insure your restorative success.

Optimal levels of vitamin D can extend your life! 

The benefits of vitamin D are numerous; it strengthens your immunity, boosts your metabolism, elevates your mood, increases your physical performance, and decreases your recovery time.  But did you know that vitamin D can also slow down the aging process by extending the length of your white blood cell telomeres?  Telomeres are the biological stop watch that determine how long your cells (and you) will live—and how healthy you will be.   You can learn more about telomeres by exploring the following links: herehere and here. ...

Struggling to Get Fit? Eat More Fat!

Believe it or not, eating the proper amount of the right kind of fat may very well be the key to unlocking your personal health, appearance, and performance potential.  A common misconception is that fatty foods cause weight gain.  But nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, eating enough healthy, dietary fat can actually help your body burn more pounds of unwanted, body fat.  And the good news doesn't stop there!  Fueling your body with foods rich in omega-3 fats can: 

• Improve your digestion.
• Reduce your sugar and carbohydrate cravings.                                                
• Increase your energy and improve your mood.
• Speed healing and recovery while increasing your stamina.
• Heighten not only your mental game, but improve your overall physical performance.

For many years, fats have been fighting an image problem. Unfortunately, incomplete and incorrect information have given them a bad reputation.

Of course, there are bad fats (those that cause degenerative diseases) that should be avoided. Bad fats include those that have been hydrogenated or refined, and can be damaged by over-heating. But the truth of the matter is that eating too many carbohydrates—especially those in the form of refined white sugars and flours—increases body fat.     

What are Fatty Acids?

This will be the first periodic post of a our Core 4 Nutrition Education Series. In these posts, which will all be found at Core 4 Nutrition BlogI will be discussing in detail the what, how and why of the four critical factors that we have found time and time again that people need to optimize in order to look, feel and perform at their best.  These factors include vitamin Domega 3 fatty acids, whole-food derived antioxidantsincluding nitric oxide and whole-food derived micronutrients.  

So let’s get started with our topic for today, what is a fatty acid and maybe more important, why should you care? 

For many years, fats have had a bad reputation because of incomplete or incorrect information. The reality is that fats are essential for life and we should not be afraid of them. To better understand how fats contribute to your good health, it is essential to understand that there are two very different kinds of fats—the good fats that our bodies need and the bad fats that cause degenerative disease....

Jason Adams on Oil for the Human Engine

At the end of last summer, Dr. Richard Cohen of Core 4 Nutrition suggested that I assess my omega 3 fatty acid level to an effort to gauge my body’s physiological performance potential.  I agreed, using one of the company’s at-home assessment kits and sure enough. My results came back low.  I consider myself a healthy eater and knew about the importance of omega 3 fatty acids, especially for athletes.  I never thought that my essential fatty acid level could possibly be a problem.  Nor did I think that that my athletic performance was being limited by such a deficiency. 

Dr. Cohen then introduced me the Core 4 Nutrition fish oil formula as a dietary supplement to bring my levels in check. The first thought that entered my mind was the strong-smelling cod liver oil that my Mom made me take when I was younger, and the unpleasant fish burps I’d experience later in the morning at school.  

But Core 4’s Just Peachy product was entirely different. I was surprised by the yummy peach taste and shocked that I never experienced any burping.  I found out this is due to the way this particular product is processed, which is also entirely different than all the others.  After a daily tablespoon in the morning for 3 months, I re-checked my omega 3 levels which were now within an optimal range...
