A Closer Look at the Nike KD8

Kevin Durant’s newest signature shoe for Nike boasts two feats in technology that have not yet seen the day of light in a basketball shoe — a Flyweave upper and a full-length Zoom Air unit. These two cutting edge elements are inspired by the versatile player himself, with a dynamic and flexible shoe that is a first for Nike Basketball. Designed by Nike designer Leo Chang in collaboration with Durant, the shoe features the innovative and high strength woven textile Flyweave upper resulting in the brand’s most technically precise shoe. Combined with Flywire cables, the durability is unmatched while still being flexible and feeling like a second skin. Sitting upon another first, the shoe features a full-length Zoom Air unit that intuitively moves and flexes with your foot. Design-wise, the shoe is inspired by a sabretooth tiger, the same tiger of which Durant has a tattoo above his right ankle. Inspired by its predatory instincts, the shoe’s heels mimic its fangs, with a high wrapping midsole that also keeps the foot locked and stable.
For its introductory colorway, the KD8 is available in a celebratory "July 4" colorway as well as a fiery matte red "V8." The former celebrates Durant’s favorite holiday in a patriotic melange of red white and blue atop a striking red Zoom Air unit. For the "V8," inspiration was taken from Durant’s customized Camaro. The silhouette is available now in its "July 4" colorway as well as on NiKEiD, while the "V8" iteration will drop July 11. Head over to Nike.com for more information.

It’s Allergy Season: Get Relief with D-Hist

Natural D-Hist features targeted, natural, seasonal support the most allergenic time of the year.  This spring has seen some of the highest pollen counts seen in years and its all due to high CO2 in the atmosphere. The lack of rain has made a bad situation worse, since all that pollen just blows around in the air, or stays on our cars and everything else. There is a film of pollen covering everything outside. 

Anti-histamines help solve the pollen problem. If there are “antihistamines”, then there must be “histamines”. Histamines are the enemy-chemicals that cause the sneezing, runny noses, itching, and postnasal drip. What did people do before antihistamines were discovered? Not much but thanks to Daniele Bovet we now have a solve them. He won the Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine in 1957. The Swiss chemist, who died in 1992 at the age of 85, never even applied for a patent for his work!

So how does D-Hist Help? It helps by the special Natural D-Hist formula that includes optimal support for nasal and sinus passageways for individuals who anticipate seasonal changes.

Natural D-Hist is a targeted blend of flavonoids, antioxidants, proteolytic enzymes and botanicals designed to provide comprehensive support for seasonal challenges caused by common environmental allergens. The formula includes quercetin, bromelain, stinging nettles leaf, and N-acetyl cysteine. The powerful combination actively promotes healthy nasal and sinus passages for individuals with elevated histamine and respiratory irritation.

For the young ones, D-Hist JR is a very good alternative. D-Hist Jr. is a great-tasting, chewable tablet that includes a targeted blend of flavonoids, antioxidants, proteolytic enzymes and botanicals designed to provide comprehensive support for children with seasonal challenges caused by common environmental allergens. D-Hist Jr. includes quercetin, a powerful flavonoid to support healthy histamine levels. It supplies bromelain to enhance the absorption of quercetin and to support mucosal tissue health and stinging nettles leaf to balance hyper-immune response. N-acetyl cysteine clears the airways by promoting normal viscosity of mucus. This unique nutritional combination safely promotes healthy nasal and sinus passages for children with elevated histamine and respiratory irritation.

Probiotics: How Can they Help?

With 80% of your immune system located in your gut, having balanced intestinal flora is a major factor in defending your body against disease. Balanced gastrointestinal (GI) flora is critical to the functioning of the immune system, synthesis of nutrients, and detoxification. Balanced GI flora is also necessary for regular and normal bowel movements.

Probiotics are live microorganisms (in most cases, bacteria) that are similar to the beneficial microorganisms naturally found in your GI tract. The most common probiotic bacteria come from two groups, lactobacillus or bifidobacterium, although many other types of bacteria are also classified as probiotics. Scientific evidence shows these probiotics

boost the immune system by enhancing the production of antibodies;
support the synthesis of vitamins and other nutrients;
relieve the effects of, and treat, intestinal illness (diarrhea, constipation, IBS);
prevent and treat vaginal yeast infections and urinary tract infections; and
may reduce the risk of colon or bladder cancer.

Two ways to boost healthy GI flora are to take a probiotic supplement or add probiotic-containing foods to your diet. Probiotic supplements come in liquid and capsule forms and many are sold refrigerated. Check with your doctor or holistic health practitioner to be sure you select a product that meets your personal health needs. It is important to follow the storage instructions for your supplement—failure to do so could kill off the live, healthy bacteria it contains.

Ortho Molecular Ortho Biotic is a carefully assembled cast of probiotic organisms designed to support microflora balance, encouraging a healthy environment for vitamin uptake and optimal immune function. Probiotics are organisms such as bacteria or yeast that improve health through the gut and the immune system. They are available in foods and supplements like Ortho Biotic.
