A new study of sunscreens by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) reports that 4 out of 5 sunscreens contain chemicals that “may pose health hazards or don’t adequately protect skin from the sun’s damaging rays”. Major brands like Coppertone, Banana Boat, and Neutrogena are some of the worst offenders. Here are some of the highlights from the study:

  • Only 15% of 952 products analyzed met EWG’s criteria for safety and effectiveness, blocking both UVA and UVB radiation, remaining stable in sunlight, and containing few if any ingredients with significant known or suspected health hazards.
  • Many products lack UVA protection.
  • Sunscreens break down in the sun.
  • Questionable product claims are widespread. Many products on the market bear claims that are considered “unacceptable” or misleading under FDA’s draft sunscreen safety standards.
  • Many sunscreens contain nano-scale ingredients that raise potential concerns.
  • The U.S. lags behind other countries when it comes to products that work and are safe.
  • Some sunscreens absorb into the blood and raise safety concerns.

Considering these ominous facts, what brand of sunscreen should you buy? The investigation reviewed nearly 1,000 brand-name sunscreen products to identify a list of products that are effective in providing protection from the damaging effects of the sun.

The EWG provides two lists of sunscreens that they recommend. The first list is the top 10 individual sunscreen products. Since this list may contain some products that aren’t readily available for everyone they created a second list of the top 10 common sunscreen brands.

Top 10 Sunscreen Products

  1. Keys Soap Solar Rx Therapeutic Sunblock, SPF 30
  2. Trukid Sunny Days Facestick Mineral Sunscreen UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum, SPF 30+
  3. California Baby Sunblock Stick No Fragrance, SPF 30+
  4. Badger Sunscreen, SPF 30
  5. Marie Veronique Skin Therapy Sun Serum
  6. Lavera Sunscreen Neutral, SPF 40
  7. Vanicream Sunscreen, SPF 35
  8. UV Natural Sunscreen, SPF 30+
  9. Sun Science Sport Formula, SPF 30
  10. Soleo Organics Sunscreen all natural Sunscreen, SPF 30+

Top 10 Recommended Common Brands of Sunscreen

  1. Blue Lizard (anything without oxybenzone)
  2. California Baby (anything with SPF 30+)
  3. CVS with zinc oxide
  4. Jason Natural Cosmetics Sunbrellas Mineral Based Sunblock
  5. Kiss My Face “Paraben Free” series
  6. Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunblock
  7. Olay Defense Daily UV Moisturizer (with zinc)
  8. SkinCeuticals Physical UV Defense
  9. Solar Sense Clear Zinc for Face
  10. Walgreens Zinc Oxide for Face, Nose, & Ears

According to the EWG, more than 1 million people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with skin cancer this year. This number has been steadily increasing over the past decade making sunscreen more important than ever.

Apply some sunscreen before you head outside even if you hate putting it on as much as I do and make sure you buy a product from one of these lists to ensure you get the best protection available.

Creatine Supplements...

So, what is creatine? Our bodies naturally make the compound, which is used to supply energy to our muscles. It is produced in the liver, pancreas, and kidneys, and is transported to the body's muscles through the bloodstream. Once it reaches the muscles, it is converted into phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate). This high-powered metabolite is used to regenerate the muscles' ultimate energy source, ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
Unlike steroids or drugs, creatine is 100% natural and occurs naturally in many foods; therefore, it can never be banned from any sports or international competitions (unless they banned eating meat). Many foods especially herring, salmon, tuna, and beef contain some creatine. However, the very best source of creatine by far is creatine monohydrate because it contains more creatine per weight of material than any other source. sells only high quality 99.9% pure pharmaceutical-grade creatine monohydrate.

Nitric Oxide Supplements

1. What is it and where does it come from?
Nitric Oxide is a free form gas that is produced in the body and is used by the body to communicate with other cells in the body. To produce this gas, enzymes in the body break down the amino acid Arginine.

Nitric Oxide is a molecule consisting of one atom of nitrogen and one atom of oxygen. The production of Nitric Oxide occurs when the amino acid L-arginine is converted into L-citruline through an enzyme group known as Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS). The chemical process of conversion is shown in figure 1.


Protein Supplements...

High protein diets, like Atkins Diet and South Beach, continue to gain in popularity among many dieters. Some athletes even use these diets and find they lose weight. Depending upon the type of athlete you are and what sort of sport you play, you might want to question the role of the high protein eating plan. Athletes should realize that much of the weight lost on these diets is a result of a decrease in total calories and the water loss that occurs with muscle glycogen depletion. If you perform high intensity or endurance training you probably know that glycogen depletion is one of the reasons athletes 'bonk' or 'hit the wall' in endurance competition. Without enough easy to access energy, in the form of glycogen, we simply run out of fuel.
