Vegan-Friendly Solutions for Well Being

1 2 3

Natural solutions for well being, health and longevity are plenty. When we buy into natural products, we invest the best into our bodies and therefore, double up on the benefits! We all have different lifestyles and needs. Sometimes people with existing conditions or dietary limits (such as Veganism ) may struggle a little more to find what they need- but it is out there! Regardless of our status, there are some things that our bodies need- no matter what.

 

 

Essential Vitamins and Minerals

There are 13 essential vitamins that your body needs to function and 7 major minerals.

Essential Vitamins: A, C, E D, K and the B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12) and the minerals include Calcium, Sodium, magnesium, and Phosphorus. There are also other minerals such as iron that are vital for health.

A healthy and well-balanced diet should include the vitamins and minerals essential to life as well as other trace minerals that support healthy function. If we look at Magnesium, in particular, this is a major mineral that many of us can be deficient in. Magnesium deficiency can lead to fatigue, muscle weakness, poor coordination, abnormal heart rhythms, and personality changes.

It is not always plain-sailing to get these vitamins and minerals into your diet and so supplements can help to fill in the gaps where needed. In terms of Vegetarians and Vegans, look for options and natural solutions that can assist- and these types of supplements are becoming increasingly popular as health-conscious people begin to reduce their intake of dairy products and red meats.

The important thing is to know your body and pay attention to signs and symptoms of feeling unwell and then take some action to re-balance through giving your body what it needs.

 

Omega 3

Omega-3s are essential fatty acids used by multiple systems in your body. Your body can’t produce Omega-3 on its own, so you have to get it from food or a supplement. This is where a vegan diet can get challenging as the main source of Omega 3 is found in fish- hence this is why it is recommended to eat at least two portions of oily fish per week.

While omega-3s can be found in seeds and nuts, it’s important to make sure you are getting them from the right source. Foods such as pumpkin seeds, walnuts, and flax contain the omega-3, ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). But this is not the only omega-3 you’re looking for. ALA can convert to DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), but at an extremely low rate – around 5%.

 

So what is the solution?

 

 

For non-vegans, eating seafood can be a great way to make sure you are getting DHA and DPA. Sadly, it comes with certain risks: the contamination of our oceans greatly increases the chance for an accumulation of mercury, PCBs, and pesticides. The bottom line is that getting the right omega-3 can be a problem! Freshfield created Vegan Omega 3 to combat this issue.

“Freshfield is a vegan-friendly, plant-based health & wellness brand that crafts products and builds communities for active people who have their physical and mental longevity in mind. We’re here for those that go further. The ones that go longer, harder and have the bumps and bruises to show for it. Why? Because that’s us, too. Even though we’re all different we have one ability in common: To push our bodies and minds just a little bit every day”- Freshfield

 

Vegan Omega 3 by Freshfield Naturals

This is a high-quality DHA supplement made from microalgae that are 100% free from ocean toxins and contains a fatty acid that many fish oils don’t even have: DPA (docosapentaenoic acid). Ensuring that you have enough DHA in your diet (through food and supplementation) is foundational to rejuvenating our youth and having a high quality of life.

“DPA is a very powerful anti-inflammatory that can also help increase your body’s ability to absorb DHA and boost the overall retention of omega-3, thereby intensifying the benefits of omega-3! Freshfield’s vegan omega-3 is better than fish oil. Hands down”- Freshfield Naturals

Here are just a few of the many benefits of Vegan Omega 3!


Boost your brain health and fight anxiety & depression:

Vegan Omega-3s improve mood, memory, recall, reasoning, and focus and support brain health as we age. People with the highest levels of DHA have a 60 percent lower risk of Alzheimer’s than those with the lowest levels.

Support Your Heart!

The American Heart Association states that Omega-3 supports healthy heart rhythm, cardiac strength, and blood vessel health. Vegan Omega-3 also supports normal blood pressure while simultaneously increasing protective high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. Higher HDL substantially reduces heart attack risk.

Natural Arthritis & Joint Pain Support

DPA & EPA have a positive effect on the inflammatory response. DPA/EPA competes with pro-inflammatory arachidonic acid in the body. This means DPA/EPA helps regulate body inflammation, which may benefit painful inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis. Patients with psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and bronchial asthma also experienced benefits by supplementing with DHA and DPA/EPA.

Healthy Eyes & Migraine Relief

DHA is prevalent in your retinas and taking a DHA supplement has been shown to reduce the risk of macular degeneration. Also, decreased frequency and severity of migraine attacks were noted in a study at the University of Cincinnati. The majority of people who took vegan omega-3 supplements experienced a 40-50 percent reduction in migraine frequency and severity.

 

 

 

Freshfields Also Offer BLACK SEED OIL as a total health solution

Why is cold-pressed black seed oil such a great supplement for joint pain, digestive, and immune system support? Because black seed oil is a great source of nigellone, an anti-histamine compound, p-cymene, an anti-hyperalgesic, and thymoquinone, a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agent.

Freshfield Naturals work directly with farmers and producers to find the highest quality seed to create their black seed oil. They constantly lab test their oil to ensure that thymoquinone levels meet their high standards.

 

Black Seed Oil is a Super-Food!

100% pure, the unrefined cold-pressed black seed oil is a powerful antioxidant superfood that contributes to reducing arthritis pain, healing tough skin conditions, boosting immune systems and more. For instance, Black seed oil can help to tackle arthritis pain, balanced blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol, and have a healthier cardiovascular and digestive system. It can also assist to ease symptoms of eczema, and strengthen hair.
