Why You Should Take NAC Daily

Why you should take NAC Daily

Have you ever heard of NAC? It stands for N-Acetyl Cysteine. Cysteine is deemed as a non-essential amino acid… Because your body can produce it on its own. On the other hand cysteine is often considered semi-essential Due to the fact that modern lifestyle factors can result in depleted cysteine levels.

It’s crucial in many metabolic processes. Namely; detoxification, respiratory conditions, brain health and fertility. As well as being a building block for protein. NAC is the supplemental form of cysteine, a precursor to the most potent antioxidant - Glutathione! Glutathione is made from the amino acids; cysteine, glycine and glutamic acid. It’s produced in the liver. Therefore any liver condition could result in depleted cysteine levels.

People with HIV or AIDs are also at risk of being deficient in cysteine. Additionally, environmental toxins and medication can all reduce liver and kidney function. This means that your body could have difficulty clearing out waste products. Resulting in an increased need to supplement to support health and wellbeing. Other than vitamin C and glutathione, NAC can be consumed to boost overall health.

That’s because detoxification is vital to keep the body clean and functioning smoothly. In this article we’ll explore the benefits of NAC and whether it’s a good idea to consume it daily as part of a healthy lifestyle routine.

7 Nutrition Tips for Fuller, Stronger, Healthier Hair

7 Nutrition Tips for Fuller, Stronger, Healthier Hair

From split ends and weak, limp strands to thinning and dryness: if your hair lacks lustre, what you eat can make a huge difference.

Certain supplements may also help. While the way you treat and style your hair can affect its condition, if you lack specific nutrients that could also be causing problems.

Granted, your age, certain medical conditions, hormone imbalance and genetics can all play a part too. But, if you're eating well and supplementing where appropriate, you can help control your overall health and encourage strong, healthy hair.

So if you want thicker, shinier locks, it's essential to eat a healthy, balanced diet, ensuring you're getting all the nourishment you need.

Of course, general lifestyle choices combine with a healthy diet to keep you in tip-top shape. Managing your stress levels, taking regular exercise and doing things that make you happy are equally as important.

Here are 7 nutritional tips for healthy, strong hair.

1) Up your biotin intake

If you are low in biotin, it can lead to thinning hair, brittle nails and lacklustre skin.

Biotin (otherwise known as vitamin H or B7) is a coenzyme that helps convert food into energy.

It also helps maintain a healthy liver and eyes and is essential for a well functioning cardiovascular, metabolic, digestive and nervous system. 

When it comes to hair, biotin plays an essential role in the production of keratin, a key structural protein making up your hair, skin and nails.

Biotin is water-soluble, and we don’t make or store it for very long. If you eat a balanced, healthy diet, you should be getting enough, but if you want to up your levels, consume more biotin-rich foods.

You could also try taking a biotin supplement.

Biotin-rich foods include eggs, avocado, berries, cauliflower, organic grass-fed organ meats, nutritional and Brewer’s yeast, nuts and seeds, sweet potatoes, mushrooms and legumes.

2) Pack in antioxidants

Antioxidants help to reduce oxidative stress, which may play a role in the ageing of hair follicles. 

While ageing is a complex process with many contributing factors, evidence also suggests that oxidative stress can directly impact hair colour and quality as we age. 

One small study has also successfully treated alopecia with vitamin E supplementation after researchers had previously noted that alopecia patients had lower levels of the antioxidants vitamin E, selenium and betacarotene

Another potent antioxidant, vitamin C, aids collagen production, which improves hair quality and strength, helps protect hair follicles from damage, and may also help to prevent hair thinning as you age.

Eat plenty of antioxidant-rich foods like lots of brightly coloured fruits and vegetables. Also, eat nuts, seeds, beans and a little bit of dark chocolate (70% or more cocoa beans).

3) Eat fatty fish or take fish oils

Fish oil may help to improve hair strand thickness and density.

Research on women with female pattern baldness supports evidence that including fish oils in your diet can potentially reduce hair loss and promote hair growth.

The effects are potentially even better if you combine fatty fish with antioxidant-rich foods.

The most direct source of the omega-3 fats EPA and DHA come directly from fatty fish, which you should eat twice to three times a week (sardines, mackerel, anchovies, salmon, herring).

Other foods that can provide you with omega-3 oils (though not as much EPA and DHA) are walnuts and other nuts, linseeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, eggs and dark green leafy vegetables such as kale and spinach.

If you’d prefer to take a fish oil supplement, try WHC UnoCardio 1000, the world’s best-quality fish oil, as named by independent US laboratory Labdoor.

4) Eat zinc foods daily

Zinc is essential for healthy hair follicles and hair growth and repair.

Hair loss can be a sign of zinc deficiency. Some small studies have had success treating alopecia and temporary hair loss using zinc supplements. 

You have to be careful when taking zinc supplements as it can cause low copper levels and other issues.

So, if you wish to supplement, only take the daily recommended amount (7mg for adult females and 9.5mg for adult males). Alternatively, seek advice from a nutritional therapist or naturopath.

The trick is to pack in zinc foods daily, as we don’t store it and need a constant supply.

Zinc-rich foods include oysters and other shellfish, red meat, dark chicken or turkey meat, chickpeas, lentils, beans, nuts and seeds, oatmeal and shiitake mushrooms.

5) Hydrate

If you’re not hydrating properly, it can dry out your hair. It can also dehydrate your scalp, which doesn’t provide the best growing conditions.

Aiming to drink two litres of water a day is a good benchmark, but needs differ from person to person. For tips on how to stay properly hydrated, click here.

6) Top-up daily on vitamin D3

Vitamin D helps make hair follicles which encourage healthy hair growth. Researchers have also established a link between female pattern hair loss and low vitamin D. 

The most natural way to get your vitamin D is from the sun. If you live in the Northern hemisphere, get out in it as much as possible during the summer months. Show as much of your skin as possible to the sun without using sunscreen

If enough of you is exposed, you can produce between 10,000 to 25,000 IU from the time you bare your skin until just before it turns pink. Then cover up and get in the shade.

The darker your skin tone, the more sun exposure you need. Remember to be sensible and don’t let yourself burn.

Sadly, stocking up in the summer doesn’t provide enough vitamin D all year round, so it’s essential to take a daily supplement as you can’t get enough from food.

Public Health England recommends children from the age of one year and adults should take 10 micrograms of vitamin D a day (400 IU) during autumn and winter.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the safe upper limit for daily vitamin D supplementation in adults is 4,000 IU. However, the No-Observed Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) is actually 10,000 IU.

If you’re worried your vitamin D levels are low, the NHS provide vitamin D testing packs.

7) Try taking O'Hisa

O’Hisa is a supplement formulated by award-winning fish oil manufacturer WHC.

It contains many ingredients that are helpful for the skin and hair including sea buckthorn, biotin, zinc and copper.

Sea buckthorn helps to remove excess oils from hair while strengthening its structure. It may even help to protect against hair loss or balding. Your skin can also benefit from its renewing, moisturising and anti-ageing properties.

The copper in O’Hisa, meanwhile, contributes to normal hair pigmentation, while the hair-boosting benefits of zinc and biotin have been mentioned above. Give it a go!

Conclusion

When it comes to having healthy hair, how you feed your body counts – and eating a balanced, varied diet focusing on natural, nourishing food with a diverse range of nutrients can make a massive difference to your hair quality.

The list of nutrients in this article isn’t exclusive. Other key ones not mentioned here include vitamins A and B12, iron and protein.

How you manage your health outside of your diet also matters. Lack of exercise and stress take a toll on your health, and consequently your hair. Aim to take regular exercise and find effective ways to manage stress.

If you have persistent hair issues, seek help from a health professional and get your iron and hormone levels checked, including your thyroid. 

While they are not standard tests performed by your doctor, it may also be worth getting tested for vitamins B12 and D deficiency. You can buy a zinc tasting test to help determine if your zinc levels are low.

*If you have a chronic health condition and are taking prescribed medication, check with your doctor before making any dietary changes or taking supplements.

Chicken Collagen for Arthritis, Joints, Skin, Hair & More

Chicken Collagen for Arthritis, Joints, Skin, Hair & More

Weird and wonderful ingredients have a habit of popping up in the supplement industry, and chicken collagen is one of the more recent success stories. Given the protein is found in cartilage, bone and other tissues, it’s perhaps no surprise that collagen supplements (including collagen protein and bone broth) are almost always formulated to improve joint and bone health. But there are other uses.

In this article, we intend to summarise some of the more popular uses of collagen. Although most of our focus will be on chicken collagen, since that appears to be the most popular ingredient employed for these purposes, we will also take a look at marine collagen and explore the similarities and differences between the two.

Let's get to it.

What is Collagen?


Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, located in muscles, bone, tendons, the skin and internal organs.

In essence, this fibrous, building-block protein helps to hold the body together. Amazingly, some forms of collagen are stronger, on a gram-per-gram basis, than steel.

The vast majority of collagen in the body belongs to types 1, 2 and 3, each with its own unique structure and function. While types 1 and 3 are typically associated with bones, skin, hair and nails, type 2 collagen services joints and cartilage. Indeed, type 2 makes up around 60% of protein in cartilage and as much as 90% of collagen in articular cartilage.

Collagen degrades over time, as a natural part of ageing. However, other factors deplete collagen in the body. These include tobacco, alcohol, poor nutrition (especially vitamin C deficiency and a surplus of pro-inflammatory foods), excess sun exposure and lack of sleep.

If your lifestyle habits are on the unhealthy side, your collagen production is almost certainly suffering. The consequence can be wrinkled or sagging skin, as well as arthritis-like symptoms such as joint pain.

Since no supplier is yet harvesting this valuable protein from healthy humans, chicken collagen is the solution most often recommended. Generally extracted from chicken cartilage, chicken collagen is a rich source of amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline and could well provide relief for a variety of conditions.

Of course, chicken collagen is not the only form on the market: cow collagen, pig collagen and marine collagen are all commercially available. As ever, quality is key: so pay close attention to the method of processing. Not all collagen proteins are the same.

Chicken Collagen for Arthritis: What Does the Research Say?


A number of studies highlight the efficacy of chicken collagen in decreasing joint pain and stiffness from arthritis.

In one which looked specifically at knee osteoarthritis, intake of native type 2 collagen (from chicken sternum cartilage) resulted in fewer swollen joints, joint tenderness and better walk time when compared with a placebo. What’s more, there were no side effects.

Meanwhile, in a 2017 review paper published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, collagen was listed as one of 7 supplements to have “demonstrated large and clinically important effects for pain reduction at short term” for osteoarthritis.

The other supplements were passion fruit peel extract, Curcuma longa extract, Boswellia serrata extract, curcumin, pycnogenol and L-carnitine.

It’s not just osteoarthritis either. A 2009 double-blind trial involving over 500 subjects with rheumatoid arthritis established that collagen supplements improved pain markers, morning stiffness, tender joint count and swollen joint count.

While it’s not possible to say that everyone with arthritis will experience relief by taking supplemental collagen – there are far too many factors involved to suggest a panacea – we can say that collagen represents a novel option. Incidentally, you might like to read our article Natural Remedies for Arthritis Pain, which summarises some of the best options.

Cosmetic Uses of Chicken Collagen


Collagen has been suggested as a means of nourishing skin. This is because naturally, collagen helps skin cells renew and repair.

In fact, your skin is composed of 75% collagen. As such, smooth, soft skin is typically a result of healthy collagen production.

Indeed, research suggests that the primary difference between radiant and sagging skin is the density of the collagen matrix.

Collagen supplementation was put under the microscope in a 2014 study, which sought to establish whether it could enhance the skin of women aged 35-55. The double-blind, placebo-controlled trial confirmed a significant improvement in skin elasticity after just 4 weeks.

Skin moisture and skin evaporation also benefitted, although such improvements were ‘less statistically significant’.

A separate study, meanwhile, showed improvements in wrinkles, roughness, moisture and elasticity after eight weeks of collagen supplementation.

According to skin specialist Paul Banwell, “Collagen drinks increase collagen in the bloodstream which in turn trigger the body’s own collagen production by firing up the fibroblasts, our own collagen factories.”

One thing worth noting: the process of collagen formation is heavily dependent on vitamin C. If you want to maximise your skincare routine, therefore, make sure you’re getting enough dietary vitamin C. (Arginine and zinc also impact collagen synthesis.)

As far as cosmetic benefits are concerned, collagen may also help to strengthen nails and restore lustre to hair. More studies are needed, however.

Chicken Collagen vs Marine Collagen

While chicken collagen is largely composed of type 2, the ideal form for building cartilage due to its provision of chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate, marine-derived collagen mostly supplies type 1.

Distinct from its counterpart, marine collagen also contains a high concentration of the amino acid hydroxyproline, which is highly effective at creating collagen in the body.

Type 1 is considered to be the best option for cosmetic purposes and marine collagen in particular is credited for its easy absorption.

Of course, you should bear in mind that collagen consumption is about  rebuilding all of your collagen, not just Type 1, 2 or 3. Healthy collagen production across the board should be the ultimate goal. A variety of collagen sources can help in this regard.

Conclusion

Whether you’re looking to strengthen connective tissues, maintain strong bones or ensure smooth, supple skin, chicken collagen is a great choice of supplement. The thing is, many products on the market come laden with added sugars and artificial sweeteners, not to mention additional chemical additives.

Hydrolyzed collagen, in case you’re wondering, refers to collagen produced from a process of triturating bone and cartilage into tiny components known as gelatin: a process which makes the protein much easier on the stomach, all the better for the body to digest and use.

Oh, and if supplementation isn’t on your agenda, do everything in your power to preserve your own collagen production: that means no smoking, adequate hydration, sensible nutrition and a good level of fitness. Oh, and the occasional facial massage can work wonders.

How to Use Black Seed Oil for Acne, Hair Loss, Herpes & More

How to Use Black Seed OIl for Acne, Hair Loss, Herpes & More

For many, black seed oil remains an untapped natural resource, a highly pure, antioxidant-rich remedy. For others, it is an integral part of both their wellness plan and their culture.

Yes, black seed oil (or black cumin seed oil) has been traditionally and extensively used for generations, particularly throughout Asia – no surprise given Nigella sativa, the flowering plant which provides the oil, is indigenous to South Asia.

Employed both topically (rubbed onto the skin) and internally for thousands of years, and recommended for a myriad of ailments, black seed oil was said to have been described by the Prophet Muhammad as “a cure for every disease except death.”

In this blog post, we investigate the various uses of black seed oil: for acne, hair loss and herpes, as the title suggests, but also for cholesterol; blood sugar reduction; hepatitis C; rheumatoid arthritis; weight loss; even cancer.

Sceptical? That's quite all right: there are many different perspectives and a mountain of scientific evidence to review. Read on to learn more about the therapeutic benefits of black seed oil.

What is Black Seed Oil?


Black cumin, black seed, black caraway, kalonji – they all refer to the tiny seedlings of the aforementioned Nigella sativa. Considered an important remedy in folk medicine throughout Middle Eastern, Asian and even European culture, the seeds have also been used in cooking, sprinkled atop curries and flatbread to add flavour.

A rich source of vitamins, minerals, essential oils, alkaloids and unsaturated fatty acids, the latter of which constitutes approximately 30% of the seeds, the product of Nigella sativa is highly nutritious.

Indeed, the high amounts of copper, zinc and linoleic acid are just the tip of the iceberg: because black seed is a generous source of thymoquinone (TQ), a powerful antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic, anti-mutagenic, anti-epileptic and anti-inflammatory compound.

It is thymoquinone which is most often cited as being the primary pharmacological agent within black seed.

Black Seed Oil for Skin Complaints and Acne


Many cosmeceutical applications have been suggested for black seed oil, particularly due to its essential oil content. After all, black seed contains more than just thymoquinone; it’s also a source of thymohydroquinone, dithymoquinone, thymol, nigellicine, nigellimine, nigellicine, carvacrol, nigellidine and alpha-hederin.

Used for centuries to treat dermatological disorders, acne vulgaris, burns and other types of skin irritation, pigmentation and inflammation, black seed oil’s usefulness in this regard is probably due to its anti-microbial and anti-viral properties.

With regards to acne specifically, 20% black seed oil extract when employed in a lotion formula was shown to demonstrate better efficacy than benzoyl peroxide lotion 5%, a typical treatment for acne and pimples.

In another clinical study from 2010, black seed oil lotion 10% ‘significantly reduced mean lesion count of papules and pustules’ after two months of administration. In the test group, the response to treatment was described as good in 58% of subjects (versus 8% in control group) and moderate in 35% (vs 34%).

If using black seed oil topically, take care to keep out of the eyes, nostrils and other sensitive parts of the body.

Black Seed Oil for Rheumatoid Arthritis


According to the results of a 2016 study, black seed oil may prove useful as part of the treatment for rheumatoid arthritis.

The trial looked at 43 females with mild-to-moderate rheumatoid arthritis, and divided them into two groups, with one taking black seed oil capsules daily and the other consuming a placebo. The study lasted one month.

In the end, the black seed oil treatment group experienced a notable reduction in arthritis symptoms, as determined by the DAS-28 rating scale; they also enjoyed reduced blood levels of inflammatory markers and the number of swollen joints was similarly decreased.

Although unlikely to be used as a single therapy, black seed oil might be employed in conjunction with a number of other treatments for rheumatoid arthritis such as magnesium oil and turmeric.

Black Seed Oil for Cholesterol


N. sativa powder has been evaluated for its effect on plasma lipid profiles in humans. In a 2009 study, the results of which were later published in the World Applied Sciences Journalintake of the powder among hypercholesterolemia patients for a period of two months was shown to reduce total cholesterol and triglycerides ‘to a highly significant extent’. The patients took 1g before breakfast every day for eight weeks.

In a separate study, black seed oil was shown to lower cholesterol in adults with levels above 200 mg/dl: total cholesterol fell by an average of 4.78%, LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol plummeted by 7.6% and overall triglycerides dropped by 16.65%. The dose was double that of the first trial, 2g daily.

Black Seed Oil and Hair Loss

Just as it has been said to soften skin, black cumin oil is apparently great for hydrating hair follicles, moisturising, strengthening and promoting hair growth.

It may even help to combat greying hair, specifically by halting the depletion of pigment cells in follicles.

Several cosmetic products with excellent reviews on Amazon count black cumin oil as one of their key ingredients. Black Seed Deep Conditioning Hair Mask, manufactured by Vatika Naturals, is just one of them.

According to one verified customer review, “I was losing hair like crazy and I didn’t know what else to try. This little black container proved to be a miracle. I don’t know how others react to it, but in my case it helped tremendously with my hair loss, it makes it shinier and much more manageable. Sometimes I don’t even use shampoo or conditioner, just wet my hair, put this on as per the instructions and rinse it.”

Improved shine, texture and volume? It sounds too good to be true. But black seed oil’s anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties suggest it could do more than that, helping to combat oiliness, dandruff and scalp irritation.

To trial black seed oil for hair loss, try massaging it onto your scalp, working it from the roots to the tips, then leaving for 30-60 minutes before washing off with regular, environmentally-friendly shampoo.

It can also be used in conjunction with olive oil and coconut oil: just add 1 tbsp of either to 1 tbsp of black seed oil.

Treating Herpes with Black Seed Oil


According to a 2016 Saudi Arabian study, cumin seed methanolic extract at 4 ?g/ml provided “61% inhibition of plaque of herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) and 49% inhibition of plaque of herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2).

It should be noted that cumin seed (cuminum cyminum) differs slightly from black cumin seed, although they share the distinction of being widely used in the traditional and Ayurvedic system of medicine. Instead of thymoquinone, the main constituent of cumin seed is cuminaldehyde.

Black seed oil, for its part, may help those with herpes by supporting the immune system. However, there is no evidence to suggest that it will get rid of the virus.

Black Seed Oil for Hepatitis C


A study conducted in 2013, which sought to investigate the effect of N. sativa on patients with the hepatitis C virus (HCV), yielded impressive results.

The subjects were given 450mg of black seed oil, in the form of capsules, every day for 12 weeks, after which a reduction in overall viral count was noted. Antioxidant activity also increased, highlighting a reduction in the hemolysis of red blood cells and platelet.

Can Black Seed Oil Help Cancer Sufferers?


There is some evidence to suggest a therapeutic benefit from black seed, and in particular from its main constituent thymoquinone, for sufferers of cancer.

In a 2014 review paper published in the journal Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, the potential of black seed oil for the prevention of cancer ‘through the activation or inactivation of molecular cell signalling pathways’ was explored.

The authors went on to note TQ’s ‘critical role in controlling cancer via the activation of tumor suppressor gene, phase II gene/enzymes, and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs)’ and cited a 2011 study which ‘proved that TQ showed anticancer effects and regulated apoptosis in doxorubicin-resistant human breast cancer cells (MCF-7/DOX cells).’

As for specific cancers with which black seed is associated, the investigators noted that thymoquinone ‘shows therapeutic roles in diseases control including cancers such as pancreatic, osteosarcoma, bladder, breast, colon, skin and lung and other diseases.’

Of course, much more investigation is needed: an insufficient number of clinical trials have been performed on cancer patients, though an experimental study of an animal model indicated that black seed use in disease management came with ‘no toxic effect.’

Black Seed Oil & Blood Sugar Reduction


Black seed oil has been shown to be beneficial for diabetic symptoms including high blood sugar and insulin resistance. A 2011 review paper summarises the reasons for this: ‘[N. sativa] reduces appetite, glucose absorption in intestine, hepatic gluconeogenesis, blood glucose level, cholesterol, triglycerides, body weight and simulates glucose induced secretion of insulin from beta-cells in pancreas.’

Furthermore, the anti-diabetic activity of black seed oil was confirmed by a study on 60 patients with insulin resistance, wherein consuming 5ml daily resulted in improved fasting blood glucose levels. It should be noted, however, that the oil was combined with glucose and lipid-lowering medication.

Black Seed Oil for Weight Loss


While the evidence for weight loss is still limited, that’s not to say it mightn’t be useful. There are a few modest-sized studies which found better weight loss results when black seed oil was used, and these involved both men and women. One study also showed that black seed oil suppressed appetite.

The bottom line is that more studies are needed; and as we all know, weight loss is best achieved through a protocol of regular exercise, sensible dieting and calorie control. There is no magic pill.

By no means does this article cover all the benefits, or potential benefits, of black seed oil. Studies – some on rats, others on humans – have shown the potential of N. sativa to improve liver and kidney function, improve sperm count, enhance memory, slow the progression of Alzheimer’s, relieve indigestion, reduce breast pain, combat anxiety and improve gut motility.

One thing’s for sure, with so many trials having been conducted on black seed oil, and such a long history of use in traditional cultures, many people have experienced the benefit of this miracle compound.

Black seed oil can be taken right off the spoon, incorporated in a salad dressing or dip, added to a smoothie or utilised on the skin. It can also be used a soothing head or chest rub.
