Put Weekly Sex In Your Life

It’s not always easy, but you should try to put weekly sex in your relationship.
Granted, there’s probably little harm in doing it more often if you’re feeling randy, but weekly sex appears to be the sweet spot. That’s the conclusion of a Canadian study published in November 2015 which found that weekly sex helped couples keep an intimate connection.
That’s easier said than done for some couples, given stress, schedules, biological challenges and the general process of getting older, but it’s something you can certainly do with commitment and a little strategy. Let’s talk about weekly sex – both why it’s important and how to make it a regular (and erotic!) part of your life.

Why Weekly Sex is Important

Having sex once a week appears to have the most benefit to a relationship. That’s the finding of the study, published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science, which is based on 3 previous studies with more than 30,000 participants.
The primary focus of this most recent study was to evaluate how sexual frequency affected well-being.
As you’d expect, the researchers found that sex is good and that more sex is better. The latter point had a catch, however – sex once a week appeared to have the greatest effect on intimacy between partners. Beyond that, and the positive effects of weekly sex started trailing off.
For their methodology, the researchers analyzed the results of three studies – the first of which being a survey conducted every two years between 1989 and 2012.

Sex once a week appeared to have the greatest effect on intimacy between partners. Beyond that, and the positive effects of weekly sex started trailing off.

These focused on responses from over 25,000 adults between 18 and 89. Among other things, the volunteers answered questions about sexual frequency (from none to 4+ times a week) and their perceptions of happiness.
In the second study, researchers surveyed 335 people online. Most of these subjects were heterosexual.
For the third study, the researchers analyzed the findings of yet another survey – this one a 14 year questionnaire of married heterosexual American couples.
Several patterns emerged from this compiled research. Sexually active couples were happier than folks who didn’t do it, but only to a point. The boosts to well-being from regular sexual activity levelled off at once a week. There was no harm in having sex more often than that – it just didn’t translate to greater well-being as a whole.
The researchers found no differences in the findings based on gender, age or length of relationship.
It’s worth considering the research does not prove that sexual frequency affects happiness. The study was not designed for that. Nor was any link found between weekly sex and well-being for single people.

Your bedroom should be used only for sleep and sex.
Your bedroom should be used only for sleep and sex.

More conclusively though, the researchers found the average couple had sex once a week. This suggests it’s the average because it’s the ‘natural sweet spot’ that couples are doing subconsciously to maintain their connection. It also lends weight to obvious assumption that couples are happier when the sex is good.
Men are more likely to get happiness from the physical aspects of sex, say observers of the study in the medical community, while women are more likely to enjoy the emotional pleasure of intimacy.
Still, you’ve got to wonder why the benefits of regular sex seem to trail off after once every seven days. The answer may lie in the brain’s pleasure center. Eat an ice cream, for example, and you’ll love the first one. Have another, and your enjoyment starts to wear off.

Light That Spark

OK, so we’ve established that weekly sex is important for your well-being and that of your partner. Weekly sex – once every seven days – seems to be the magic place to maintain intimacy and make passion the trill it’s meant to be.
That can be difficult with years on a relationship. So how do you keep that spark lit and keep things intimate months, years and decades with the same partner? Try this:
Make Your Relationship Your Top Priority – In the end, it’s your relationships that matter. So make them your top priority – set aside at least three times a week together when you can cuddle, go on a date, share a hobby or intimate meal together. Do anything you can do that puts you alone together.
Have a ‘Couple Ritual’ – A ‘Couples Ritual’ is a habit with your partner unique to the two of you. It could be simple or something on a bigger scale. That could be brushing your teeth together, kissing before going to work/coming home, an inside joke or a language you speak together. The point is to do something you can share with your partner.
Think About Sex – Get in the habit of thinking about sex each week. There will be times throughout your life when you have greater interest in sex than others. We’re suggesting you make it consistent – learn what puts you in the mood and initiate sex each week. Try Provestra or HerSolution Pills if you need to revive your libido.
Flirt – You may find those sexy glances and lust-filled texts came easier while you were dating, but it’s important to flirt after you’re married too. Put a little passion into it to keep things fresh.
Work At It – Relationships can be hard work. So don’t let things get stale; try new things, like these new sex positions (you’ll love them!). Talk about your likes and dislikes. Put work into your relationship – and, of course, aim for weekly sex.

Make it Easier

HerSolution Pills womens libido supplement.
HerSolution Pills womens libido supplement.

We offer two forms of female enhancement products here at Natural Health Source. One is a gel and the other is a women’s libido supplement. They’re both based on natural formulations and are made to make sex both comfortable and rewarding.
female enhancement gel is a topical application. Applied to the genitalia, it’s designed to reduce dryness, so you’re instantly in the mood. Natural Health Source customers like these because they’re based on natural ingredients, and can be more gentle than drugstore lubricants in this highly sensitive area.
female libido supplement is the opposite – it’s designed for long-term sexual enjoyment. This is a natural libido pill, with sexual nutrients that build up in the female reproductive system. You’ll typically wait 1-3 months to enjoy the benefits, but you’re in for a very enjoyable ride when they do.
The benefits of a female libido pill include more sexual desire, easier climaxes and the ability to have spontaneous passion whenever you like. You may want to opt for Provestra, which has black cohosh root, if menopause symptoms are giving you trouble.
Consider using a female enhancement gel like HerSolution Gel for comfort and/or a women’s libido supplement like HerSolution Pills (or Provestra) for ongoing passion and long-term fulfillment. They’re both designed to make sex more enjoyable, and may help put weekly sex back in your bedroom and rekindle that spark to bring you closer together.

Leaky Gut Syndrome?

The health community is littered with fads and well-intentioned but often-harmful gimmicks like kombucha and the paleo diet. Curiously, though, there may be truth to leaky gut syndrome – a collection of digestive symptoms including gas and bloating, cramps and food sensitivities.
Wait a second. Doesn’t that sound like Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
Well here’s the thing: your gut has a powerful, albeit mysterious effect on your well-being and quality of life. It’s so powerful in fact that it’s been called ‘your surrogate brain’ by Dr. Steven Lamm of The View. It’s the biggest organ of your immune system – and it’s clouded in too many unknowns to address leaky gut effectively.
We know it exists. But we don’t know enough leaky gut syndrome for diagnosis or a cure at this time.

What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Leaky gut syndrome is a collection of symptoms linked to bad digestion. Our current understanding suggests it’s caused by intestinal permeability. That’s when tight junctions in your gut, which filter the molecules that pass through the small intestine don’t work properly. Molecules can pass from your intestine into you bloodstream when this happens. Hence the name, ‘leaky gut syndrome’.
This is a similar issue faced by people with Crohn’s and Celiac disease. But we don’t know what causes leaky gut or the ailments linked to it. Nor do we know if someone without Crohn’s or Celiac disease would get leaky gut syndrome in the first place – or when leaky gut syndrome would affect someone without certain types of drugs, radiation therapy or food allergies.
Leaky gut syndrome symptoms are not unique either. They’re shared with other gut-related ailments like IBS. Tests for leaky gut often fail to identify the cause of the problem, which can leave patients with leaky gut symptoms without a diagnosis or treatment.
And yet your concerns about leaky gut syndrome may be credible – especially if you have a history of Crohn’s or Celiac disease.

Risk Factors for Leaky Gut

It’s a mystery why people get leaky gut syndrome. With that being said, there are clues as to why it happens. While it’s not certain, you may be more likely to get leaky gut symptoms if you have:

Leaky gut should be discussed with a gastroenterologist.
Leaky gut should be discussed with a gastroenterologist.

Food Sensitivities – People with food sensitivities may be more likely to get leaky gut. That’s because your immune system is deluged with toxins in the blood stream every day. While most folks can fight them off, food sensitivities appear to force the body to mass-produce antibodies to counter them, particularly foods with antigens like wheat and dairy. This may strain the intestines, and make permeability an issue.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease – Hungarian researchers found that people with IBS and Colitis appear to have higher risk of permeability in the colon. Crohn’s patients may be at even higher risk – one study found that the relatives of people with this uncomfortable ailment had 10-20% greater chance of leaky gut.
That suggests leaky gut syndrome may be influenced by your genes.
Autoimmune Disease – A 2011 article published in the journal Physiologic Reviews found that a protein called zonulin may increase risk of intestinal permeability. That risk went up significantly in patients with an autoimmune disease. Further research suggests gluten may trigger this process even in people not genetically prone to it.
Thyroid Problems – You may be at higher risk of leaky gut syndrome if you have thyroid issue like Hashimoto’s disease. Also called ‘chronic thyroiditis’, this can lead to hypothyroidism, impaired metabolism, fatigue, depression, weight gain and a variety of related symptoms.
Malabsorption – Leaky gut may lead to nutritional deficiencies from vitamin B12, magnesium and a variety of enzymes that help with digestion. You’ll want to speak with your doctor in this scenario – which you should be doing regardless, if you have gut problems. Your doctor may suggest probiotics and a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, if they don’t trigger your leaky gut symptoms.
Inflammatory Skin Conditions – There’s an interesting connection between skin and your gut. That connection may include acne and psoriasis, if you’re prone to leaky gut syndrome. While many doctors prescribe creams to address skin disorders, it may be worth speaking to a health practitioner willing to explore the mind-gut axis with you, and if healing your gut may also help your skin.
Mood Problems and Risk of Autism – A study published in the journal Neuro Endocrinology Letters links leaky gut to several neuro cognitive disorders. For example, the inflammatory response of intestinal permeability appears to trigger pro-inflammatory cytokines. That in turn may lead to chemicals that cause depression.

What If I Think I Have Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Leaky gut syndrome means you have digestive symptoms that need diagnosis. Don’t think for a second you’re being hypochondriacal about it – leaky gut syndrome is a real, albeit misunderstood ailment of the digestive system.
Given the latter’s influence on health and well-being, digestive problems go far beyond a troubled tummy, discomfort and trips to the bathroom.
If you have ongoing digestion problems, be they bloating, cramps, food sensitivities or something else, you need to speak with your doctor. That may not cure your gut problems, but it’s certainly a good place to start.

Intensive Colon Cleanse by Digestive Science.

It’s also worth considering that some doctors can’t – or won’t – look into what’s causing your discomfort, and will instead look to just relieve your symptoms with digestive medications, like proton pump inhibitors. Not all doctors are willing to explore leaky gut syndrome with you, out of time constraints and the fact that, well, we really don’t know much about leaky gut at this time, other than we know it exists.
You may want to consider speaking with a specialist. A gastroenterologist may be of interest if this is a route you want to explore.
We offer Intensive Colon Cleanse by Digestive Science here at Natural Health Source. You may find that helps your digestion, although we don’t claim it can cure leaky gut syndrome, IBS, acid reflux, or any other digestive problem. While it may help, your gut is a mysterious place that is second only to your brain for the influence it holds on your body function and health.
Speak with your doctor or, better yet, a gastroenterologist, if you think you’ve got leaky gut syndrome. Have an open mind too – we’re still learning about the gut, and how to keep it happy with each passing year.

Melaniq – supplement for hair pigmentation.

Buy Now ,Melaniq is a food supplement.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Melaniq® is a food supplement for hair pigmentation, specifically designed to support your body’s ability to produce melanin, the natural pigment that gives your hair its colour. It contains copper, the mineral that is essential for the synthesis of melanin. Melanin is produced in specialised cells, called melanocytes. The initial step of melanin biosynthesis is catalysed by the enzyme tyrosinase, which contains copper at its active site. It utilises L-tyrosine, which is also an activator of the whole process, as well as the initial substrate. When your hair follicles are not getting enough nutrients and minerals or, for example, when the melanocytes can’t cope with the oxidative stress anymore, the ability to produce melanin may gradually terminate. As a result, your hair turns grey. By combining copper with L-tyrosine, essential vitamins, a strong antioxidant and a seaweed of high nutritional value, scientists at Oxford Biolabs have recently improved Melaniq®, making it the first choice when it comes to supporting your natural hair colour with a food supplement.

  • Contains copper, which contributes to normal hair pigmentation.
  • Specifically formulated to support the body’s ability to produce melanin.
  • Suitable for vegetarians.
  • Manufactured in Germany.

TAKE CONTROL OF GREYING HAIR WITH MELANIQ®

Melaniq® has been created for those experiencing premature greying and greying in general, as well as for those who would like to tackle greying hair.

MELANIQ® FOOD SUPPLEMENT FOR HAIR PIGMENTATION

As people age, their chances of going grey increase because hair follicles start losing the ability to produce pigmented hair. For many, the process of greying begins in their thirties, with 74% of men and women going significantly grey between the ages of 45 and 65. Having recognised that the premature ageing of hair is an issue of both physical and emotional concern, the team of Oxford Biolabs scientists has come up with an innovative approach.

By combining copper with L-tyrosine, essential vitamins, a strong antioxidant and a seaweed of high nutritional value, they developed a unique formula to support natural hair colour. Melaniq®, a food supplement for hair pigmentation, is the result of world-leading research and a combination of high quality, naturally-based ingredients. Three capsules of Melaniq® taken per day can contribute to normal hair pigmentation and the maintenance of natural hair colour.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

  • Support of normal hair pigmentation.
  • The supply of important nutrients necessary for melanin biosynthesis that can help to slow down the process of greying.
  • No major side effects.
  • No hormone interference.

WHAT SHOULD I NOT EXPECT?

  • Reversal of grey hair. Melaniq® is developed for men and women who are experiencing greying in the early stages, or those wishing to delay the onset of grey hair. The effect in more advanced stages of greying will be less pronounced.
  • An immediate effect. Taking Melaniq® regularly and over a prolonged period of time is critical to success.

HOW IT WORKS

The enzyme at the heart of hair pigment production is tyrosinase. The activity of this important enzyme is dependent on the availability of copper, which is built into the active centre of tyrosinase. It has been shown that people suffering from premature greying have a reduced level of copper in their blood serum. An insufficient supply of copper results in the reduced activity of tyrosinase and hence reduced pigment production, ultimately causing the onset of grey hair. Therefore, Melaniq® contains copper and L-tyrosine, the starting molecule as well as activator of melanin biosynthesis. Biotin, which is also part of the Melaniq® formula, contributes to the maintenance of normal hair. These core ingredients are found within a blend of complementary compounds: key vitamins (D, B12, folic acid), natural plant extracts (green tea (contains epigallocatechin-3-gallate), Japanese pagoda tree bark (contains quercetin), tomato (contains lycopene)), as well as the brown algae Ascophyllum nodosum. During the process of greying, melanocytes may also slowly lose their ability to cope with oxidative damage. For this purpose the formula is completed with vitamin C, which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. This unique formulation of Melaniq® can supply the nutrients your body needs for the maintenance of natural hair colour.

8 Natural Moisturizers For Dry Skin

Checked your hands lately? If you’re like many folks in October, they’re starting to crack. Welcome to the change of seasons, folks, in which cool air leads to dry skin and a run on moisturizers for the face and the body.
You could go that route too – but you could also try one of these natural moisturizers, with ingredients easily bought with your weekly groceries. Do that, and you could potentially skip these dangerous ingredients in skin care products.
Don’t get us wrong, a moisturizer can save your life (well OK, save you a lot of pain) when dry skin sets in during the coldness of winter. It’s just that we like natural moisturizers here at Natural Health Source because, well, they’re natural. They may save you a little money too, if they’re in your kitchen at the moment. So give them a shot – you may find you prefer natural moisturizers to their drugstore competition.

Think About These Natural Moisturizers

Honey – Yes, honey. We know it’s sticky, (and please keep it away from your keyboard!), but organic honey is packed with anti-bacterial nutrients that help unclog spores and may fight acne where it hurts. It’s also rich in antioxidants that may help reduce wrinkles, blemishes and the general wear and tear on your skin that adds years to your appearance.
For Use: Mix two tablespoons of honey with eight tablespoons of water until it’s a paste. Then apply it to your skin, let it dry, and gently wash off with warm water.
Buttermilk – Wanna save money on skincare products? Try buttermilk – it’s high in lactic acid, which you’ll often find in expensive cosmetics because it helps with cell turnover. New cells means younger skin, and those cells are already bathed in the many nutrients found in buttermilk.
For Use: Dip a facecloth in cold buttermilk and apply to your face for five to ten minutes. Now rinse it off.
Olive Oil – A staple of the Mediterranean Diet, olive oil is packed with antioxidants and natural acids that may help reduce sun damage on your skin.
For Use: Add a few tablespoons of olive oil to a couple drops of lavender essential oil to a bath. Then get in and enjoy!
Castor Oil – Castor oil makes a great natural moisturizer. That’s because it’s high in fatty acids that quickly absorb into the skin. The linoleic acids in castor oil help it lubricate dry patches from the inside-out, and help form a barrier so moisture locks in.
For Use: Get raw, unrefined virgin coconut oil. Rub it between your hands to liquify it and apply to your skin.
Shea Butter – There’s a reason shea butter shows up in so many body washes and skin care products – it’s awesome. It’s high in A and F, both of which help skin plump and reduce dryness. Like Argan Oil, shea butter is made from tree nuts (the Shea tree), and it’s a natural moisturizer that may help protect your skin from the elements.

An avocado peel may help reduce dry skin on the face
An avocado peel may help reduce dry skin on the face.

With sun damage being the leading cause of visible ageing, that’s definitely a good thing.
For Use: First, verify your shea butter has not expired. Assuming it hasn’t, slather it all over your skin and enjoy!
Avocados – They’re good for your heart and poetry for your brain. But apply avocado to your skin and a funny thing happens; it will help lubricate every layer of your skin. That’s because avocado is packed with healthy fats, along with vitamins A, D and E, which have anti-aging properties. Do it for your brain and your heart, and your appearance as well.
For Use: Eat a ripe avocado, but leave a little of the cream inside the peel. Then, rub the inner peel lightly on your face. Let the residue sit for 15 minutes. Now rinse it off with warm water.
Cucumbers – Cucumbers are a great way to hydrate your body on a hot summer day. They also make a great natural moisturizer (yes, cucumbers). The reason? They’re packed with skin-friendly nutrients magnesium, potassium and vitamins A and E. Cucumbers promote blood circulation, which helps your skin, bones and nails. The vegetable may also help fight wrinkles and you can even use them to get rid of eye bags.
For Use: Slice up a cucumber and put a slice over each eye to help address puffiness in that area. You can also puree cucumber to make a hydration mask if you stick it in a blender and add a few drops of honey.
Aloe – Soother of sunburns, aloe also makes a great natural moisturizer and can hydrate your skin without making it greasy.
For Use: Cut and peel an aloe leaf to reveal the gel within. Now apply it on your skin.

Finally, don’t forget one of the best natural moisturizer in natural skin care. Peruse this website long enough and you’ll know what we’re talking about – argan oil, which is packed with beauty-friendly nutrients like essential fatty acids, vitamin E and natural antioxidants. They combine to make ‘liquid gold’ – just one litre of Skinception Cold Pressed Cosmetic Argan Oil takes an entire season of output from a single tree.
The result is something magic; a natural moisturizer you can use to protect your skin in a challenging environment, like extreme heat or intense cold.
Slather Skinception Argan Oil on your hands and you’ll see what we mean.
Granted, we’re biased. But we believe in Skinception Argan Oil. You can use it to moisturize your skin and condition your hair. Heck, you can even use it to strengthen your nails. You may also find it helps save you money, as a skin moisturizer and hair conditioner rolled into one.
Try Skinception’s Argan Oil as an entry point into natural skin care. It may be one of the best natural moisturizers out there, and it comes with the reassurance of the Skinception name and a 97 day money-back guarantee.
We also like the fact that it’s pure argan oil – and not diluted. And, of course, that it’s hand-made by the Berber women of Morocco, who perfected the extraction technique over 3,500 years, and in a fair trade co-op, with health and education benefits for the women who make it.
Good for your skin, good for your soul. That’s why we like Skinception Cold Pressed Cosmetic Argan Oil!
