Well, the lottery for a free bottle of Limu is over!   I am disappointed to say that I did not get close to the 25 entries required for the lottery to take effect.  I was hoping there would be more interest, but that is just how it goes I suppose.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank the handful of you that took the time to post an entry.  I really enjoyed reading your comments.

Until my next post.  Have a nice Ash Wednesday!

Lottery for a Free Bottle of Original Limu

Since we are in the beginning of a brand new year, I think it will be fun to start the year off with an Original Limu contest…or should I say lottery.  The prize will be one unopened bottle of Original Limu delivered to your doorstep absolutley free.  So, if you have always wanted to try the product but have been a little skepticle, here is your chance.

To enter this lottery you do not have to buy a ticket, all you have to do is submit a comment to this post explaining what you plan to do this year to live a more healthy life.  The lottery will run until Wednesday, January 31st at midnight, at which time I will select a winner at random from the submitted comments.  The winner will be announced on this blog, and also notified via email.  The only requirement that must be met in order for the lottery to take place is that I must receive 100 submissions before February 1st.

So what do you have to loose?  Take a few moments to share what you plan to do to become more healthy, and you will be entered for a chance to win.  Good Luck!!

Building A Strong Immune System to Prevent Heart Disease

heart.jpgStudy of fucoidan’s anti-viral and anti-bacterial activity could also mean it has therapeutic value for preventing heart disease by bolstering immunity.  If, as some research suggests, C-reactive protein (CRP) is elevated from viral or bacterial activity, prevention of such an invasion could enhance our ability to lower our cardiovascular disease risk. 

Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham are assessing whether there is a possible connection between Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria known to cause stomach ulcers.  The bacterial infection is thought to be a precursor to gastric cancer and heart disease.  The study, which will look at H. pylori and the incidence of heart disease in African-Americans, should have implications for the population at large.

Scientists have found that fucoidan inhibits the adhesion of H. pylori in the gut, again, giving it a potential role in cardiovascular-disease prevention.  In studies, fucoidan’s anti-viral activity was shown to be effective against herpes simplex and HIV.

Control Hypertension

I apologize that I have not posted in a couple of weeks.  I have been out of town on business and this is the first opportunity I have had to side down and punch out a post.  Anyway, here is some information I found on Limu and Hypertension…enjoy!

heart.jpgHigh blood pressure, or hypertension, is considered another major risk factor for heart attack or stroke, especially when coupled with other risk fators, including elevated cholesterol and diabetes (blood-sugar disorders).  A study from the University of Goteborg, Sweden, noting a dietary approach is often recommended for mild hypertension, found that a seaweed preparation was effective in decreasing sodium and increasing potassium intake in 62 middle-aged patients with mild hypertension.  This is a significant finding.  One of the drugs that is often prescribed for high blood pressure is a potassium-sparing diuretic.  Adding limu to your diet could help keep your blood pressure stabilized, according to this research, and could help lower it if you have mild hypertension.

Limu has also been found to help in weight control as it is high in fiber and low in calories, meaning it can satisfy your hunger pangs without being a pain to your waistline.

Limu’s health benefits clearly extend to heart health.  Incorporated into your daily diet as a major component of your fruit and vegetable choices can keep your ticker working by lowering your cholesterol and blood pressure, maintaining optimal blood-sugar levels, bolstering your immune system against invading viruses and bacteria and helping control your weight.

Heart attacks can be avoided, but once you have one your life is considerably changed.  This major muscle needs tender loving care with high nutrition and regular workouts, because once it fails, recuperation is not easy, if attainable at all.  Patients living with heart failure must endure constant monitoring, treatment with anti-coagulants, and constant fear of another heart attack or sudden death.

Prevent Plaque Formation

Filed under: Blogging, Fucoidan, Health, health drinks, Heart Disease, Limu, Original Limu — Original Limu @ 12:05 am

moreinfo4.jpgFucoidan appears to inhibit smooth muscle cell activation; a process that plays a role in plaque formation.  Smooth-muscle tissues are a type of nonstriated muscle found in the walls of hollow organs, including blood vessels.  Smooth muscles move matter inside the body through contraction, which generally operates without thought or nerve stimulation.

Scientists have found that fucoidan helps inhibit smooth-muscle cell activation.  This is important for the prevention of restenosis- plaque buildup that renarrows an artery previously cleared by a procedure like angioplasty.
