Why Oxylent?

Posted by Oxylent on 2/4/2019 to Heart Health
Without healthy cardiovascular function, blood cannot be oxygenated, nutrients cannot be transported throughout the body, and waste products cannot be filtered by the liver and kidneys. Unfortunately, however, cardiovascular health issues are increasingly common in the United States and worldwide. Understanding the role of nutrition in achieving and maintaining optimal cardiovascular health challenges is one of the most important issues facing the health sciences today.

With some practical tips from the Mayo Clinic and the American Psychological Association, you can minimize the holiday stress.

Benefits of Bromelain, Boswellia Serrata, and Bioperine
No matter what activities we choose to participate in, we all have joints that take a little abuse now and then.

Whether you are a marathon runner, looking to beat your time by a couple seconds, a parent who wants to be able to keep up with the kids in the backyard, or maybe you work in a hands-on career that leaves your fingers and wrists a little swollen at the end of the day, the endless day-in, day-out repetitive pressure exerted on our joints can leave us a little achy. Luckily for us, each joint has something called “articular cartilage,” which not only acts as a shock absorber, but also as a “teflon” coating over the surface of the joint.

Liven up your Summer with Lemonade

Liven up your Summer with Lemonade
Nothing says summer like sipping a cool, refreshing glass of freshly squeezed lemonade. As a kid, I remember making store bought lemonade with my sister and we’d sit outside with our tray of cookies waiting for our neighbors to stop by our lemonade stand. Now that I am more health-oriented, I’ve decided to opt for homemade lemonade to avoid all of the artificial colors and preservatives. Not to mention when you make it from scratch, it tastes fresh and natural.

Healthy Road Trip Snacks

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 6/4/2018 to Diet and Nutrition

I love road trips, but it’s challenging to find healthy foods while traveling. While some gas stations and rest stops carry a few options (like fruit or pita chips) I usually don’t have much to choose from and I often end up hangry if I am not prepared. The restaurants aren’t always the healthiest, either!

Whether you are traveling solo, with a friend or significant other, or with the whole family, here is a list of healthy road trip snacks you can mix and match to fit all of your nutritional needs:

Power Up with Celsius!

Posted by Ricky Seda on 5/25/2018

Energy Drinks - ever growing, ever evolving, ever developing, and ever accessible. Honestly, you can’t walk into a gas station, supermarket, or supplement store without seeing at least one refrigerator full of energy/pre-workout drinks. Though they may seem tempting, many of these drinks are loaded with sugar and dangerous artificial chemicals that can be harmful if used over a long period of time. Another issue with these drinks is that many companies have failed to be honest on their labels...

DIY Probiotic Face Masks

We admit it: we are bit obsessed with ashwagandha.

Posted by Mt. Angel on 5/2/2018 to Vitamins, Herbs, and Minerals

Take a look at Mt. Angel Vitamin’s Premium line, and you will see that Ashwagandha is found in high dosage amounts in over 30% of our products. I guess when you find something that works, its hard to stray too far away. We chose a trademarked, clinically-studied form of Ashwagandha, KSM-66®, because with its increased bioavailability, we don’t compromise quality!

But the real question you are all asking (because that’s the reason you are reading this article, right?), is WHY. WHY is ashwagandha such a stand-alone ingredient? WHY does its name appear more often than not in the supplement industry? And WHY should you be supplementing with it?

What is CBD?

Posted by Ricky Seda on 4/25/2018 to Stress Management

Cannabis sativa! You’ve most likely heard of it as the marijuana plant, which reactions to hearing that word vary greatly. Some love it for its psychoactive benefits, other dislike it greatly. But one thing that none of us can deny, is that the medical orthodoxy is looking into this plant for its positive benefits outside of its psychoactive properties.

Hiking to Better Health

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 4/3/2018 to Stress Management

With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s easy to become stressed, overstimulated, and run down. Many of us spend the majority of our time indoors, sitting in front of a screen (or multiple screens) for the majority of our day. Our society overall is disconnected from earth. When was the last time you’ve spent a couple hours outside?
A great way to get back to your roots is to go hiking. Hiking is beneficial to our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. Here are a few ways hiking is important for our health:

Posted by Ricky Seda on 3/28/2018 to Diet and Nutrition

It has been more than a week since the official first day of spring. The leaves will start changing, and certain parts of the country will start having warmer weather. Summer will be here before we know it! This is the time of the year when most of us work the hardest to get our physiques ready to hit the pool or beach. But before the summer arrives, how about we do a little bit of "spring cleaning?"
