Breast health is an important concern for many women and is based on the idea that there are decisions that women can make that can help keep their breasts healthy. This is particularly important since more women get breast cancer than almost any other type of cancer. There are many factors that influence breast health including diet, exposure to toxins from the environment, stress, smoking, use of oral contraceptives or HRT, and family history. Healthy decisions related to diet, fitness, lifestyle and use of breast health supplements are just some of the choices that can affect breast health.+ Read more >
While breast cancer is the most concerning health concern related to breast health, there are other conditions that have an impact on breast health. One of these conditions is the presence of cysts in the breasts, known as fibrocystic breasts. This occurs in women ages 30 – 50 and the cysts are fluid-filled benign growths that change in size and tenderness depending on the monthly cycle. Hormone levels, circulation, low thyroid levels and dietary choices all have an impact on the formation of cysts in the breasts. There are several breast health supplements that can help address the presence and effects of cysts in the breast. Vitamin B complex supplements can help reduce the size of cysts and the effects of PMS. Evening Primrose Oil supplements can help reduce the pain and swelling associated with cysts premenstrually. Since iodine deficiency can contribute to the formation of lumps, taking a kelp supplement can be beneficial for those with thyroid problems. If your breast health concern is primarily related to cancer prevention there are several other breast health supplements that are also important incorporate into a daily supplement regime. Vitamin E supplements can help improve the circulation of estrogens in the breasts and decrease the size of a lump by softening the tissue. Vitamin B complex and milk thistle are breast health supplements that help the liver to flush toxins from the body. Omega-3 fatty acid supplements, particularly those derived from organic flax seed and flax oil have been shown in studies to help reduce the risk of breast cancer, and for those who have breast cancer they can help fight the disease. Rates of breast cancer are lower in Asian cultures than North America and one of the contributing factors is the regular consumption of green tea. The most active ingredient in green tea, Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), is believed to have anti-cancer properties that affect several types of cancer, including breast cancer. Consider adding a high quality green tea extract supplement that includes some caffeine, which helps increase the effectiveness, to your daily breast health supplements. Making healthy lifestyle choices can also aid in the prevention of breast cancer. These include quitting smoking, eating a low fat, whole-foods diet that is high in fibre, fruits and vegetables, reducing sugar intake and exercising regularly. If you are to support your breast health naturally, Body Energy Club’s online vitamin and supplement store has a large selection of breast health supplements for you to choose from. Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >
Aor Active Green Tea is a high-potency standardized extract of green tea, high in epigallocatechin gallate, believed to be the key phytonutrient in green tea, responsible for its health benefits. Studies most consistently report health benefits in persons drinking ten cups a day of high-EgCG sencha-style Japanese green tea; each cup of this tea contains 150 milligrams of EgCG. The labels of most green tea extracts exaggerate the number of cups of tea represented in their capsules by comparing the product to poor-quality teas. Active Green Tea allows you to more fully enjoy the healthy properties of a sencha-rich lifestyle without consuming large volumes of tea.$30.99

Total E is the first truly balanced, complete E-complex supplement. Vitamin E is not just alpha-tocopherol, and not just "mixed tocopherols" either. The E complex includes eight distinct vitamin E molecules (or "vitamers"): four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Unbalanced alpha-tocopherol supplements have been shown to deplete the body of these other E-complex members and reduce their health benefits. Research shows that the different members of the vitamin E family have unique functions not shared by other E vitamers, and that E-complex members also act synergistically together.
