    6 Ways to naturally support your digestion

    Funny tummy. Extra gassy. Blocked up. Bloated. Feeling queasy. Tummy tantrum.

    Everyone, at some point, experiences digestive problems. Whether it’s an upset stomach, diarrhea, gas, and bloating, or the feeling like you ate an entire watermelon – you’re not alone.

    The interesting thing is that most of us never talk about what’s going on with what’s coming out. You know, the inner ecosystem of digestion and elimination. For some reason, we’re shy about this. Well, this blog will help relieve any stigma and change that today.

    When is the Best Time to Take Probiotics?

    Learn 11 do’s and don’ts of taking probiotics

    Probiotics. Everyone seems to be taking them as a fundamental way to support overall health,  but numerous questions arise when integrating probiotics into your wellness routine, including which probiotic strains to take and the best time to take them. 

    Ideally, you follow the dosage instructions for your probiotic supplement. Depending on the probiotic strain, the instructions may tell you to take them with food or between meals. The ability of various probiotic strains to survive the pH of our stomach acid varies from species to species and within strains. For example, Lactobacillus spp. are able to survive acidic gastric conditions while Bifidobacterium spp. cannot tolerate these conditions.

    But life is busy. Sometimes you simply forget. Other times, you don’t have your probiotics with you.

    Learn about NAC, amino acids, antioxidants, and glutathione

    Iron. Vitamin C. Omega-3 and 6. Calcium. Vitamin D. Magnesium. Zinc. Vitamin B12.

    This is a pretty good list of vitamins and minerals you should be getting on a daily basis. When you combine a daily multivitamin with a balanced diet, you’re oh so close to giving your body everything it needs.

    Yes, you read that right – you’re close to giving your body the nutrients and support it needs to power you through your days.

    But there are a couple of pieces missing in this giant nutrition and whole-body health puzzle – amino acids and antioxidants. 

    And more specifically, I want you to know about N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC).

    Propolis Benefits: Nature's Best Kept Secret

    Discover 7 science-backed potential benefits of propolis

    You may not have heard of "bee glue," but it's exactly what it sounds like—a sticky, resinous mixture that bees use to fill gaps in their beehives. 

    And for us humans, bee glue may provide a range of health benefits. In fact, bee glue or as it’s more commonly named, propolis, has a long history of use in natural healing and health.  

    Because propolis is high in flavonoids, a type of antioxidant, this natural substance is believed to aid in wound healing, fight infections, reduce inflammation, and provide antioxidant effects.

    One of our goals with the Quantum blog is to shine a light on overlooked and lesser-known health supplement ingredients. 

    In this blog we take a deep dive into propolis, exploring its long history of use, examining what science says about its potential benefits, and providing background on the importance of antioxidants, polyphenols, and flavonoids.

    How to Lower Blood Sugar Naturally

    7 lifestyle strategies to lower your blood sugar naturally

    Day in and day out, you probably don't give much thought to your blood sugar levels. This is normal. If you don’t have diabetes, blood sugar and hyperglycemia are simply not on your radar. 

    I thought the same thing. I eat well, exercise regularly, get lots of sleep, and I don’t smoke. But I did struggle with energy crashes in the late afternoon, often feeling like I needed a nap. I assumed this was due to getting up early for swim practice and the occasional late night out. Even with cutting back on the late nights, I just couldn’t shake the afternoon energy slump.

    After a trip to my doctor, I learned all about blood sugar and nondiabetic hyperglycemia. Turns out the sugary energy drinks and packaged energy bars I ate before my workouts and in the afternoon to tide me over to dinner were causing my blood sugar to spike
