Vitamins for Men

Folic Acid Danger Some studies suggest the enzyme needed to convert folic acid into a usable form is very slow, causing unmetabolized folic acid to build up in the plasma and tissues. Although more research is needed, a high intake of folic acid from supplementation may be associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer and colorectal tumors. excess folic acid intake is that it can mask a deficiency in vitamin B12 = anemia, fatigue, nerve damage and even neurological changes.

Xanax

Herbal Alternatives to Xanax Romans turned to medicinal herbs to calm their nerves. Some of these traditional remedies have carried into the 21st century and continue to be used for anxiety. Before using herbal alternatives in lieu of conventional medications such as Xanax, keep in mind that the natural approach may not work best for you. Some herbs can interact with the medications or supplements you're already taking and cause unpleasant or dangerous side effects.





Valerian

Subscribed for 7th of each month... Real Herbs Valerian root extract, 4:1 400 mg and Passion flower powder 300 mg 5s $16.90

The medicinal use of valerian dates back to ancient Rome and Greece, states the National Center for Complementary Medicine (NCCAM). Traditionally, it's been used for anxiety and insomnia, although there's still not an abundance of clinical evidence that supports it for these purposes, according to NCCAM. Valerian is often combined with lemon balm or St. John's Wort, states the UMMC, when used for anxiety. Common preparations include capsules, tablets and liquid extracts.

Valerian may interact with certain medications, cautions the UMMC, specifically sedatives, such as barbiturates, narcotics and antidepressants.





Passionflower

Historically, passionflower was used as a sedative. According to the UMHS, one double-blind study showed that passionflower extract was as effective as the prescription anti-anxiety medication oxazepam. Preparations include liquid tinctures and the dried herb, which may steeped to make tea. Passionflower has no known adverse effects when combined with other sedative drugs, although there is concern that it may interact with monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors, states the UMHS.





Lasix Alternatives

Hydrochlorothiazide Alternatives Lasix belongs to a class of drugs known as diuretics that are prescribed to combat fluid retention and to lower blood pressure.

Hawthorn

The herb has a wide array of medicinal properties, including its ability to flush excess fluids from the body. These diuretic properties make hawthorn particularly useful in the treatment of high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, according to Duke. Excess fluids in the body exert greater pressure on blood vessels, resulting in elevated blood pressure. Remove the excess fluids, and blood pressure drops. If the heart’s function has been impaired through previous damage from a heart attack or the accumulation of atherosclerotic plaque in the blood vessels, the normal excretion of fluids from the body is compromised, causing an unhealthy buildup referred to as edema. Duke says that hawthorn contains at least nine anti-edemic compounds.





Metoprolol Alternatives

What Herbs Are Similar to Metoprolol? Metoprolol is a conventional drug prescribed for hypertension, angina, arrhythmia and heart failure as well as to prevent heart attacks. It relaxes blood vessels, slows your heart rate, improves circulation and lowers blood pressure. Metoprolol may have unpleasant side effects, such as depression, dry mouth, heartburn, nausea, fatigue, vomiting and dizziness. If you suffer from heart problems or high blood pressure, natural herbs may work similarly to metoprolol with fewer side effects

Hawthorn

Hawthorn, or Crataegus laevigata, is a shrub with a long history of medicinal use as a cardiotonic. Herbalists use the leaves, flowers and berries to treat many cardiovascular diseases. The main ingredients are flavonoids and procyanidins, which act on enzyme systems and, like metoprolol, correct arrhythmias. In his 2003 book, “Medical Herbalism: The Science and Practice of Herbal Medicine,” clinical herbalist David Hoffmann recommends hawthorn for hypertension, angina and congestive heart failure due to its ability to dilate coronary arteries and improve circulation.

Do not combine hawthorn with other heart medicine.

Linden

Linden, or Tilia platyphyllos, is a European deciduous tree with large heart-shaped leaves and greenish-yellow flowers. Herbalists use the flowers and sapwood to treat fevers, colds, stomach problems and hypertension. The sapwood, or living part of the tree where sap flows, is rich in phenolic acids and polyphenols, and has hypotensive action. Like metoprolol, linden’s relaxant properties improve circulation and lower blood pressure. Herbalist David Hoffmann notes that linden is a tonic for the circulatory system and a relaxing herb useful for hypertension.

Do not combine linden with other sedative or heart medication.

Motherwort

Motherwort, or Leonarus cardiaca, is a tall perennial found throughout Europe and parts of Asia. Healers use the aerial parts to treat heart disorders and overactive thyroid. The active ingredients include iridoid glycosides and alkaloids known as stachydrine and leonurine, and the plant has cardiotonic and hypotensive action.

Motherwort has similar effects as metoprolol on heartbeat. In their 2001 book, “Herbal Remedies,” naturopathic doctors Asa Hershoff and Andrea Rotelli state that motherwort slows the heart rate and normalizes rhythmic disorders. It also improves blood flow, helping to reduce high blood pressure.

Avoid using motherwort if you are taking other cardiovascular drugs. Is there an alternative to Metoprolol? They raised my dose to 50mg once a day. After a couple months I felt like I had lead boots on my feet, my muscles were sore for no reason and I was always fatigued.

Hypertension treatment

Hypertension treatment with diet and supplements Natural Hypertension treatment and remedy - Diet and food selection

Eat more fruits and vegetables -- preferably fresh and organic. Fruits and vegetables have numerous compounds that can dilate blood vessels, including flavonoids. Fortunately for many chocoholics, cocoa, or dark chocolate, has important flavonoids.

Eat more garlic since garlic has a potent effect on reducing hypertension in a significant manner.

Garlic, and onions, have compounds that have potent blood vessel dilating properties. Garlic-derived polysulfides stimulate the production of the vascular gasotransmitter hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and enhance the regulation of endothelial nitric oxide (NO), which induce smooth muscle cell relaxation, vasodilation, and BP reduction.

Add flaxseeds to your diet. Not only do they help with healthy bowel movements, but they lower BP and cholesterol levels. The flax seeds should preferably be whole as opposed to the oil since the whole seeds contain fiber.

Add chia seeds to your diet.

Berries, such as blueberries, are also known to reduce blood pressure.

Reduce salt intake. Individuals with high blood pressure uncontrolled by multiple prescription medications may be consuming too much salt. Some with so-called resistant hypertension have sharp reductions in their blood pressure when they dramatically curtail their salt intake. If Americans were to cut their salt intake to recommended levels, they'd have far fewer cases of high blood pressure, and save billions of dollars in health care costs.

Try to shed some pounds -- Greater amounts of fat in the abdomen point to an increased risk of developing hypertension. For suggestions, see Weight loss.

Reduce fat intake, such as meats, lard, bacon, hydrogenated oils -- fats found in fish are good.

Reduce caffeine intake -- skip that second cup of coffee, substitute caffeine-free herbal drinks, limit herbal teas with caffeine to one or two cups. Caffeine found in coffee can raise blood pressure in some individuals, even if they are regular drinkers.

Reduce sugar intake - Eating too many sweets or drinking too much soda raises blood sugar. People who consume a diet high in fructose, a type of sugar and a key ingredient in high-fructose corn syrup, are more likely to have hypertension.

Drink more water and avoid sodas except small amounts of diet soda which should not raise blood pressure.

Learn how to sleep better and deeper. Those who sleep deep have a lower risk for hypertension.

Reduce alcohol intake. High amounts of alcohol can certainly aggravate hypertension. Despite its heart benefits, drinking red wine raises blood pressure to the same degree as drinking beer.

Try to have less stress in your daily life [gardening!]

Exercise, walk at least one mile per day, especially outdoors. Nitric oxide stored in the top layers of the skin reacts to sunlight and causes blood vessels to widen as the oxide moves into the bloodstream. That, in turn, lowers blood pressure.

Drink unsweetened soy milk and reduce intake of regular milk. The use of soy protein dietary supplements may help reduce systolic and diastolic blood pressure in patients with early hypertension, July, 2005 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Eating dark chocolate may help lower blood pressure, boost normal responses to insulin to keep blood sugar levels down, and improve blood vessel function in patients with high blood pressure.

Supplements for hypertension natural remedy

Garlic pills or eating garlic could lower BP by a few points.

Potassium is helpful. Those who have low potassium levels are more likely to have high blood pressure.

Antioxidants may be helpful for long term health maintenance of arteries, but not necessarily to lower blood pressure in the short term. Doses can be kept low, such as vitamin C less than 300 mg a day, and natural vitamin E less than 200 units a few days a week. Take a natural vitamin E complex, rather than the synthetic dl-tocopherol.

Probiotics are suggested to be of benefit.

Lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant in dosage of 10 to 50 mg.

Grape seed extract has been shown to reduce hypertension.

Quercetin is known as a very strong blood vessel dilator. Chronic oral Quercetin exerts antihypertensive effects in spontaneously hypertensive rats.

Genistein is a type of flavonoid found mostly in soy. Genistein helps produce more nitric oxide, a powerful chemical in the blood stream that helps dilate blood vessels. Genistein is available as a supplement.

Soy protein supplements are also helpful.

B vitamin and coenzyme complex — B6, folate, and B12 are crucial for the health of arteries and to lower homocysteine, an amino acid-like compound in the blood stream that can be toxic in high doses. Some early studies indicated low body levels of vitamin b 12 or other B vitamins may be a cause of elevated blood pressure.

CoQ10 could be helpful in dosages of 20 to 50 mg. The study is discussed below. High CoQ10 dosages could lead to shallow sleep which is not helpful since deep sleep reduces hypertension risk.

Lycopene supplements lowered blood pressure in one study, but if you eat plenty of tomatoes and other foods with lycopene, a supplement is not necessary.

Green tea and oolong tea drinkers are less likely to develop hypertension than non tea drinkers. It would be better to drink tea in the morning since the small amounts of caffeine can interfere with sleep if you drink tea later in the day. It would be best to limit tea intake to one or two cups unless there is no caffeine in the herbal tea you are consuming. Another option is to take green tea extracts with breakfast or lunch.

Calcium and magnesium are important minerals helpful in supporting healthy blood pressure

Hawthorn extract may be helpful.

Vitamin D is a supplement that can be taken from 200 to 600 units a day.

Melatonin once or twice a week at night for better sleep. People being treated for high blood pressure who also take melatonin sleep longer and have a more restful sleep.

Ginkgo low dose, not more than 40 mg, in the morning

Potassium - Potassium citrate has similar hypertension lowering effects as the best-studied potassium compound, potassium chloride.

Dark, but not white, chocolate has polyphenols that may lower hypertension.

Arjuna is an Ayurvedic herb that has promising effects in blood vessel dilation. We have received a few emails that Arjuna supplement use led to a lower blood pressure.

Low dose baby aspirin - be careful since a dose more than 100 mg a day can increase the risk for bleeding and stomach ulcer.

Apocynum venetum is an herb used in China for hypertension treatment.

Drinking hibiscus tea 2 or 3 times a day could lower blood pressure slightly.

Pycnogenol, French maritime pine bark extract, improves endothelial function of hypertensive patients. Life Sci. 2004.

Other medicines

NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, decongestants, steroids, estrogen and oral contraceptives, cyclosporine are medications that can make hypertension worse.

Those who take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)--such as ibuprofin (Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve) at least 22 days per month appear to be much more likely than others to develop hypertension. This is also true for acetaminophen. Taking aspirin before bedtime--but not at other times of the day--may lower blood pressure

Complications: Cardiovascular disease is a major problem. Hypertension could lead to left ventricular hypertrophy which could result in congestive heart failure, arrhythmias and myocardial infarction. Other complications of hypertension include stroke and kidney disease.

What the numbers mean: Hypertension is defined as a systolic pressure at rest that averages 140 mm Hg or more, a diastolic pressure at rest that averages 90 mm Hg or more

Dietary supplements that cause elevated BP: include arnica, bitter orange, blue cohosh, 'g quai, ephedra, ginkgo, ginseng, guarana, licorice, pennyroyal oil, Scotch broom, senna, southern bayberry, St. John's wort, and yohimbine.

Natural therapy emails:

So now I"ve been using dandelion for one week. I can tell my b.p. is lower & my heart rate is lower than before

advised by his doctor that ibuprofen taken regularly causes hypertension

Lovage Benefits

Benefits of Growing and Eating Lovage You might not have heard much about lovage, but this herb has been long used to benefit skin health, lung and kidney function, allergies, inflammation and many other health conditions. All parts of the plant are safe to eat and can be used in cooking as a vegetable, herb or spice.

Lovage (Levisticum offinale) is easy to grow and inexpensive. The plant is originally from around the Mediterranean and was once widely grown throughout Europe. It’s time for this under-used herb to regain the attention it deserves.

Health Benefits of Lovage

1. Prevents Kidney Stones

A key way to prevent kidney stones is to drink and flush plenty of water through your body. Lovage is what’s called and aquaretic. It helps your internal flushing process by encouraging urination without electrolyte loss.

2. Lung Support

Lovage has been used traditionally to loosen and clear phlegm in the lungs and relieve coughing and sore throat. The plant also contains the chemical compound eucalyptol, which has been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect in bronchial asthma.

3. Healthy Skin

It’s recognized that lovage can sooth or reduce swelling and edema. Lovage can be used to help skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis and acne. You can apply the fresh leaves directly to affected skin or make a salve out of dried lovage.

4. Antibacterial Properties

Research has found that lovage can be an effective treatment against bacterial infections. In a University of Birmingham study, lovage had the strongest antibiotic effect against bacteria such as Salmonella, E. coli and H. pylori compared to 21 other plant extracts.

5. Helps Digestion

One of the most common uses for lovage is to relieve gas, bloating, colic in children and other stomach and digestive disorders. It’s thought that the anti-inflammatory effect of lovage is what helps to ease and support the intestinal tract. For instance, lovage contains the anti-inflammatory compound limonene, which one study showed has a significant anti-inflammatory effect on colitis in rats.

6. Joint Health

The anti-inflammatory properties of lovage can also assist with joint disorders such as gout, arthritis and rheumatic swelling.

7. Inhibits Allergies

Lovage contains another important anti-inflammatory called quercin, which has been shown to be especially beneficial for allergy treatment. Quercin inhibits histamine release and reduces skin irritation caused by environmental sensitivities, as well as itchy eyes, runny noses and other potential allergy symptoms.

8. Menstrual Support

A traditional use of lovage is to help with issues around menstruation, such as cramps and bloating. It’s thought the high nutrient density in lovage may be partially behind its benefits during that time of the month.

How to Grow Lovage

Lovage is a low maintenance addition to your garden. It grows in clumps similar to celery that can reach up to 6 feet tall and wide. It prefers sun or partial shade and evenly moist soil, but is tough enough to handle a variety of conditions. Lovage will bloom in July and August with attractive yellow flowers in an umbel shape similar to carrots or parsley.

Lovage is a perennial that’s hardy to zone 3, so you can plant it in ornamental or vegetable beds and it will return every year. You can also use it as a container plant on a balcony or deck.

Start lovage from seed or take a division from a friend. It’s best to sow fresh seeds directly in the ground in fall and water them in well. If you’re sowing seeds in pots, this can be 'e in early spring.

How to Use Lovage

If you’re taking lovage for medicinal purposes, you can find lovage capsules or tinctures in many natural health stores or buy them online. Take lovage supplements as directed on the package, which is typically once or twice daily.

You can steep one tablespoon of fresh leaves or stems in 1 pint of boiling water for 7 minutes to make an infusion. It’s recommended to drink several cups throughout the day, or as advised by your health care provider.

Lovage also makes a great addition to various meals. You can use the fresh leaves and young stems like celery in soups, stews, sauces and salads. The roots can be shredded or steamed and used as a vegetable. The seeds provide a unique flavor similar to fennel or anise. They are excellent in breads or simmered into a curry or other spicy dish.

Give some of these tasty lovage recipes a try:

Apple-Lovage Chutney
Lentils with Lovage
Baby Greens with Roasted Beets and Potatoes
Fettucine with Tomato and Lovage Sauce
Lemony Lovage Pesto
Lovage and Lettuce Soup

Only one caution has ever been reported for lovage. The roots contain furanocoumarins, which are compounds that may lead to photosensitivity. If you consume lovage regularly and find that you’re becoming more sensitive to sun damage, discontinue using the herb.





Heartburn

Got Heartburn? Reach For This Instead Of Antacids

Whether it was a natural lack of acid or an overgrowth of bacteria, it appeared to me that the answer for my heartburn was actually to give my body more acid instead of less. But how? The answer was already sitting in my kitchen cabinet.

Multiple different sources instructed me to add a couple tablespoons of raw, unfiltered, organic Apple Cider Vinegar to about eight ounces of filtered water"> and chug it down.

It smelled like I was drinking salad dressing, but I decided to give it a try… within minutes, my heartburn was noticeably less severe. I took a dose of this tonic once a day, typically in the evening when my symptoms were the worst, for around three days. And you know what? My heartburn totally disappeared.

Now, I take this vinegar mixture any time I feel the slightest twinge of heartburn or indigestion and it always helps!





Fish & Krill Oils

"Keep in mind that there are still significant amounts of [calories and] cholesterol in fish... Thus, you are constantly working at cross purposes. You're eating fat and cholesterol... Does that make sense?

"Many studies have shown that... fish oil... raises LDL levels. [Even with all the cholesterol removed from fish oil, it still raised LDL levels].

Whether or not.. fish oils have a significant benefit for the prevention of heart disease is hotly debated in the medical world. Unquestionably, heart disease is not due to fish oil deficiency, but rather to too much rich food and an unhealthy lifestyle." (John A. McDougall. __The McDougall Program For a Healthy Heart__. p. 44) [Doctors Esselstyn and Campbell agree. Too many calories and fat for what it is worth.]

Krill Oil: What To Know Before You Buy Learn Which Supplement Doctors Say Works Better Than Anything Else At Reducing Cholesterol, Easing Inflammation, and Maintaining A Healthy Heart... Of all the products we reviewed, one stood tall above the rest: the Premium Antarctic Blend from Whole Body Research.

Why Krill Oil? Krill oil has over 50% as much Omega-3s as fish oil, with none of the aftertaste...

Beyond the increased Omega-3s, krill oil also has massive amounts of an amazing antioxidant known as astaxanthin. The fantastic thing about astaxanthin is that it's one of the few antioxidants capable of penetrating the barriers in your brain and eyes, preventing free radical damage and ensuring you can see and think clearly well into your golden years and beyond.

And because astaxanthin is so effective at penetrating barriers, it can also get into your cells and clean them out, allowing them to perform their jobs more efficiently. While cleaner cells lead to a healthier body, they are also able to produce more energy when they're not weighed down by free radicals. The end result is a you that is more energetic and less prone to fatigue.

Astaxanthin also acts like an analgesic and anti-inflammatory as well, making it Mother Nature's treatment for painful conditions like arthritis. This gives you all the benefits of traditional painkillers, minus the risk of addiction, gastrointestinal bleeding, or heartburn.

Simply take them with food, like you would any vitamin or supplement... We recommend taking enough to get 150 mg of DHA and 90 mg of EPA per day.

If you're using a blood thinner or suffer from a blood clotting disorder, consult a doctor before taking krill oil.

Krill oil is unsuitable for anyone following a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle.

KRILL

Krill Krill are small crustaceans of the order Euphausiacea, and are found in all the world's oceans.

Krill are considered an important trophic level connection – near the bottom of the food chain – because they feed on phytoplankton and to a lesser extent zooplankton, converting these into a form suitable for many larger animals for whom krill makes up the largest part of their diet. In the Southern Ocean, one species, the Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, makes up an estimated biomass of around 379,000,000 tonnes,[2] more than that of humans. Of this, over half is eaten by whales, seals, penguins, squid and fish each year

Krill The lowly krill averages only about two inches (five centimeters) in length, but it represents a giant-sized link in the global food chain. These small, shrimp-like crustaceans are essentially the fuel that runs the engine of the Earth’s marine ecosystems.

Krill feed on phytoplankton, microscopic, single-celled plants that drift near the ocean’s surface and live off carbon dioxide and the sun’s rays. They in turn are the main staple in the diets of literally hundreds of different animals, from fish, to birds, to baleen whales.

Simply put, without krill, most of the life forms in the Antarctic would disappear.

Alarmingly, there are recent studies that show Antarctic krill stocks may have dropped by 80 percent since the 1970s. Scientists attribute these declines in part to ice cover loss caused by global warming. This ice loss removes a primary source of food for krill: ice-algae.

Web MD: Krill Oil Krill oil is oil from a tiny, shrimp-like animal. Baleen whales, mantas, and whale sharks eat primarily krill. In Norwegian, the word "krill" means "whale food." People extract the oil from krill, place it in capsules, and use it for medicine

Who is the Leader in Krill Oil? Unlike large fish, krill do not accumulate toxins and heavy metals, rendering them safer and virtually free from contamination. Krill oil is uniquely bound to structures known as phospholipids, naturally present in human cell membranes, distinctly setting it apart from fish oil The omega-3’s in fish oil are bound to triglycerides, making them less bioavailable and less absorbable. Krill oil has been shown to be far more effective for improving cardiovascular health, particularly with healthy cholesterol maintenance, improving joint mobility, memory and increasing overall energy.

Viva Labs Krill Oil best review

Consumer Reports: Krill Oil vs Fish Oil Arthritis symptoms. Krill oil helped people with arthritis by reducing pain, stiffness, loss of function, and inflammation as measured by serum C-reactive protein, or CRP, which is linked with chronic inflammation, according to a clinical trial at the University Health Network in Toronto. Among the findings: Neptune brand krill oil reduced pain much more than a placebo, and CRP levels fell a significant 31 percent among those taking krill oil compared with a 25 percent rise among those in a placebo group, according to the study, published in the February 2007 issue of the Journal of the American College of Nutrition.

If you take a supplement, __consult a doctor because krill oil and fish oil may interact with some drugs, including blood thinners__.

Fish-oil supplements are probably safe for most people in doses of 3 grams or less a day. There are no formal standards for krill oil

Krill vs Fish Oil Even though krill contains the antioxidant astaxanthin, which makes up about 0.2% of the oil by weight, rapid decomposition of the krill happens in only two to three hours. Fish oil has a significantly longer life of about 48-72 hours before decomposition and oxidation begin to occur. This allows much more time for processing.

Extensive research has been 'e and has established that adding specific percentages of vitamin E and rosemary extract (both of which are fat soluble antioxidants) to the oil is the most effective way of maintaining oil freshness. This combination of antioxidants provides, at a minimum, an equal oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) value when compared to krill oil.

krill, krill oil, fish oil vs krill oil, benefits of krill oil, krill omega-3In comparing fish oil and krill oil, the manufacturing process also needs to be examined. When fish oil is obtained from sardines and anchovies, they generally yield in excess of 80% fat. This compared to krill, which can yield less than 5% fat and that is what increases the time of decomposition.

Krill Oil Negatives Blood Thinning... One potentially dangerous side effect associated with krill oil is blood thinning. Krill oil contains EPA and DHA two fatty acids responsible for blood thinning. According to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Krill oil can decrease blood coagulation. Reduced blood coagulation is potentially dangerous in individuals at risk for bleeding complications. Additionally, if you take krill oil supplements and you are cut or wounded, it may take longer than normal for the wound to clot and stop the bleeding.

Medication Interaction
In a study that appeared in the 2004 Annals of Pharmacotherapy, krill oil increased the effect of warfarin, a blood-thinning medication. Additional medications that may interact with krill oil include aspirin, clopidogrel, diclofenac, ibuprofen, naproxen, dealteparin, enoxaparin, heparin and warfarin. You should, therefore, speak with a medical professional prior to taking any krill oil supplement if you currently take any medication that can cause your blood to thin.

Product Quality
The overall production process of the krill oil can determine the overall quality and safety of the krill oil supplement. Krill oil can oxidize and spoil so production quality has potential safety concerns for the consumer. Generally Recognizes As Safe is a certification that the Food and Drug Administration gives supplement manufacturers after meeting production quality standards. Only two krill oil manufacturers have received this certification, Neptune Krill Oil and Superba Krill Oil.

Krill Oil More Useful for Treating Inflammation Than Flax Seed Oil While all omega-3 fats possess immune-boosting qualities, omega-3 fats from fish oil, EPA and DHA, are more biologically potent than omega-3 fat ALA, found in plant sources such as flax seeds.

Clinical trials have also assessed the benefits of supplementing the diet with fish oils and results showed a decrease in diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis,psoriasis, lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis and migraineheadaches.





Omega-3

What You Need to Know About Omega-3s may help lower the risk of heart disease, depression, dementia, and arthritis. Your body can't make them. You have to eat them or take supplements... Omega-3 fatty acids come in more than one form. The types found in fish, called DHA and EPA, seem to have the strongest health benefits. Another form known as ALA is found in vegetable oils, flaxseed, walnuts, and dark leafy vegetables such as spinach. The body can change a small amount of ALA into EPA and DHA, but not very well.

Omega-3 fatty acids help your heart in several ways. They curb inflammation in the blood vessels (and the rest of your body). At high doses they also make abnormal heart rhythms less likely and lower your level of blood fats called triglycerides. Finally, they can slow plaque buildup inside the blood vessels.

If You Have Heart Disease
The American Heart Association recommends 1 gram a day of EPA plus DHA for people with heart disease. Eating oily fish is best, but your doctor might recommend a fish oil capsule. If you've had a heart attack, a prescription dose of omega-3s may help protect your heart. Some studies show fewer heart attacks and fewer heart disease deaths among heart attack survivors who boosted their levels of omega-3.

Omega-3s seem to have a stabilizing effect on the heart. They can lower heart rate and help prevent arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms). Several common sources of omega-3s are fish, walnuts, broccoli, and edamame (green soybeans that are often steamed and served in the pod).

Omega-3s DHA and EPA can lower your triglycerides, a blood fat that’s linked to heart disease. __Talk with your doctor before taking omega-3 supplements, because some types can make your "bad" cholesterol worse__. You can also bring down triglyceride levels by exercising, drinking less alcohol, and cutting back on sweets and processed carbs like white bread and white rice.

Lowering High Blood Pressure
Omega-3s can help lower blood pressure, a bit... If you have high blood pressure, limiting salt is probably one of the things your doctor has recommended.

Do They Help Prevent Stroke?
Omega-3 foods and supplements curb plaque buildup inside blood vessels, helping with blood flow. So they may help prevent stroke caused by clots or a blocked artery. But at high doses, omega-3 supplements __might make bleeding-related stroke more likely; so check with your doctor__.

A diet high in omega-3s may also boost the effectiveness of anti-inflammatory drugs.

Omega-3 Supplements
If you '’t like fish, you can get omega-3 from supplements. One gram per day is recommended for people with heart disease, but ask your doctor before starting. High doses can interfere with some medicines or increase risk of bleeding. You may notice a fishy taste and fish burps with some supplements. Read the label to find the amounts of EPA, DHA, or ALA you want.

Vegetarian Sources of Omega-3s
If you ''t eat fish or fish oil, you can get a dose of DHA from algae supplements. Algae that is commercially grown is generally considered safe, though blue-green algae in the wild can contain toxins. Vegetarians also can get the ALA version of omega-3 from foods such as canola oil, flaxseed, walnuts, broccoli, and spinach -- or products fortified with omega-3s.

Dr. Mercola: Your Practical Guide to Omega-3 Benefits and Supplementation Time and again, I have emphasized that omega-3 fats are essential to your overall health... Marine animals such as fish and krill provide eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are mostly promoted for their protective effects on your heart. Flaxseed, chia, hemp, and a few other foods, on the other hand, offer alpha-linoleic acid (ALA).

Good Benefits of Flax Seeds (Video) Flax seeds offer the benefits of fiber, protein and heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

Time for an Oil Change The more omega-3 fats you eat, the easier your body cools itself. A cool body is a less inflamed body. And inflammation is at the root of nearly every chronic disease, especially those impacting the brain and the heart... Beyond the heart and brain, eating the right fat also helps you shed fat. Healthy cell walls made from high-quality fats are better able to metabolize insulin, which keeps blood sugar better regulated. Without proper blood sugar control, the body socks away fat for a rainy day.

Omega 3 This is a brand new item, just launched in April 2011... This product is made from algae. Except, unlike older algae oil products, this one has both EPA and DHA. Each pill has 320 mg DHA and 130 mg EPA for a total fo 450 mg Omega-3 per pill.

Futurebiotics New Harvest EPA:

600 mg EPA Omega-3 Per Pill... yeast derived Omega-3. This product was introduced last year and is just gaining distribution.

If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, you need to try this product. It’s not made from algae, but yeast. I bought a 30-capsule box for $16.99 + $4.95 shipping for a total of $21.94.

It’s got 600 mg of EPA Omega-3 per softgel. There is 1200 mg of oil per pill so the strength is 50% Omega-3. 50% would be mid-pack for fish oil. But for vegetarian Omega-3 sources, 50% is great!

Unique Fatty Acid Slows Aging and Protects You From Dehydration Omega-3s: The Secret to Cellular Hydration?

So how can you improve your cells’ ability to absorb and retain water? Well, cell membranes are made up primarily of fatty acids, and breakthrough research is showing that consuming the right amount and types of fatty acids is critical to maintaining healthy, hydrated cells as you age.[2] Omega-3 fatty acids in particular play a key role in maintaining cellular hydration and keeping inflammation at bay.[3] Yet sadly, according to many experts, nearly all Americans are severely deficient in omega-3s — even many of those who take supplements and eat a healthy diet.[4]

You can get omega-3s by taking a fish oil supplement or eating fish and certain plant foods, such as flax seeds and walnuts. However, research is showing that these omega-3s are not always the easiest for cells to absorb. The fact is, the type of omega-3 supplement you take can have a huge impact on your body’s ability to keep hydrated.

Experts Are Calling This an Omega-3 “Miracle”

You may have heard about a new omega-3 supplement called krill oil that some experts claim provides health benefits light years ahead of fish oil. Krill oil, which comes from tiny shrimp-like creatures that are abundant in the pristine waters surrounding Antarctica, was thrust into the supplement spotlight when it was featured on an episode of The Dr. Oz Show called “The #1 Supplement You’ve Never Heard of That You Should Be Taking.”

I was skeptical at firstbut after reading through the research on krill oil, it quickly became obvious to me that these little pink crustaceans have to offer your health is nothing short of miraculous.

Carrageenan

Carrageenan Carrageenan, a soluble fiber derived from red seaweed, is a natural food ingredient that has been used for hundreds of years in cooking all over the world. It often replaces synthetic and animal-based products.

Carrageenan is one of nature’s perfect stabilizers, offering benefits in texture, structure and physical appearance to foods and enabling the delivery of a more indulgent product, even for those foods that may have lower calorie, salt, sugar or fat content.

An overwhelming body of evidence supports the conclusion that carrageenan is safe and suitable for use in food... Carrageenan can be found in a number of foods you eat every day, including yogurts, cheeses, chocolate milk and almond milk, ice cream, salad dressing, jams and jellies, hotdogs, and more. It can also be found in personal care products like toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner, body soaps, face wash, makeup, and more.

CARRAGEENAN:

Carrageenan: a popular natural ingredient that may compromise health Wednesday, March 19, 2014 by: Carolanne Wright. Linked with gastrointestinal inflammation, lesions and malignant tumors, carrageenan can cause significant damage. And if you think purchasing organic will keep you safe, think again. A true case of buyer beware, taking a second look at your favorite foods may prevent a number of health problems down the road.

"The unique chemical structure of carrageenan triggers an innate immune response in the body, which recognizes it as a dangerous invader. This immune response leads to inflammation. For individuals who consume carrageenan on a regular or daily basis, the inflammation will be prolonged and constant, which is a serious health concern since prolonged inflammation is a precursor to more serious disease."

How Did Carrageenan Get into Your Organic Food Anyway? a controversial ingredient like carrageenan linked to GI disorders like IBS and bloating and a higher rate of colon cancer (in animal studies).

Prevention: The Natural Ingredient You Should Ban From Your Diet Many food manufacturers—even some makers of commercial organic foods—are adding "carrageenan" to foods like yogurt, chocolate, soymilk, and even ice cream to give the foods a thicker consistency and to make low-fat versions taste fuller. Derived from red seaweed, it's often added to beverages to keep their ingredients from separating; you'll find it in many nutritional shakes, milk products, and milk replacements. The ingredient even crops up in certain frozen dinners, soups, and commercial broth products. The problem: carrageenan could be causing inflammation, gut irritation, and even cancer.

Although derived from a natural source, carrageenan appears to be particularly destructive to the digestive system, triggering an immune response similar to that your body has when invaded by pathogens like Salmonella. The result: "Carrageenan predictably causes inflammation, which can lead to ulcerations and bleeding," explains veteran carrageenan researcher Joanne Tobacman, MD, associate professor of clinical medicine at the University of Illinois School of Medicine at Chicago. She says the food ingredient irritates by activating an immune response that dials up inflammation. Her previous work showed a concerning connection between carrageenan and gastrointestinal cancer in lab animals, and she's involved with ongoing research funded through the National Institutes of Health that is investigating carrageenan's effect on ulcerative colitis and other diseases like diabetes.

Dr. Weil on Carrageenan Over the years Dr. Tobacman has published 18 peer-reviewed studies that address the biological effects of carrageenan and is convinced that it is harmful to human health.... in the past, drug investigators actually used carrageenan to cause inflammation in tissues in order to test the anti-inflammatory properties of new drugs.

Carrageenan: Risks and Reality The unique chemical structure of carrageenan triggers an innate immune response in the body, which recognizes it as a dangerous invader. This immune response leads to inflammation. For individuals who consume carrageenan on a regular or daily basis, the inflammation will be prolonged and constant, which is a serious health concern since prolonged inflammation is a precursor to more serious disease.

In fact, the medical community has long recognized that inflammation is associated with more than 100 human diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and arteriosclerosis. Inflammation is also linked to cancer.

“Carrageenan exposure clearly causes inflammation; the amount of carrageenan in food products is sufficient to cause inflammation; and degraded carrageenan and food-grade carrageenan are both harmful,” says Dr. Joanne Tobacman, MD, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine, University of Illinois at Chicago. In other words, we simply '’t know if any amount of carrageenan can be considered safe.

Researchers continue to explore other ways in which carrageenan is harmful. Scientists have recently found that contact with carrageenan reduces the activity of certain beneficial enzymes in human cells. And a recent study exposing mice to carrageenan in drinking water showed impaired insulin action and profound glucose intolerance—precursors to diabetes.

And what’s worse is that issues may not be immediately apparent. But the absence of noticeable gastrointestinal symptoms does not signify that an individual is unaffected by carrageenan.

Research shows carrageenan predictably causes inflammation. Low-grade inflammation of the intestines may go unnoticed; nevertheless, chronic low-grade inflammation in the body is profoundly unhealthy. Scientists are increasingly concerned about the negative effects of low-grade inflammation on overall health, especially as it often leads to more serious disease down the road.

Yerba Mate Tea

Yerba Mate Yerba Mate has the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate" all in one beverage. Of the six commonly used stimulants in the world: coffee, tea, kola nut, cocoa and guarana, yerba mate triumphs as the most balanced, delivering both energy and nutrition.

Yerba mate (yer-bah mah-tay) is made from the naturally caffeinated and nourishing leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest holly tree (Ilex paraguariensis). For centuries, South America’s Aché Guayakí tribe have sipped yerba mate from a traditional mate gourd for its rejuvenative effects. These rainforest people find tremendous invigoration, focus, and nourishment in yerba mate.

The leaves of the rainforest mate tree naturally contain 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, abundant antioxidants. In fact, The Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific society in 1964 concluded "it is difficult to find a plant in any area of the world equal to mate in nutritional value" and that yerba mate contains "practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life."

Yerba mate contains caffeine, theophylline, and theobromine, well-known stimulants also found in tea, coffee and chocolate. The caffeine content varies between that of green tea and coffee. Unlike tea, yerba mate has a low tannin content so it can be strong like coffee with out becoming extremely bitter. Unlike coffee, yerba mate is not oily and acid forming, so it is less likely to cause stomach acid and jitters.

Yerba mate is the national drink of Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Southern Brazil where it is consumed 6 to 1 over coffee. In Argentina, over 90% of the people drink yerba mate with a gourd and bombilla.

Tomando mate (drinking mate) is a symbol of hospitality. As the mate gourd is passed around, a sense of connection emerges. The first step of the ceremony is the preparation of the gourd. Typically, the cebador/a - mate server - prepares mate for a friend or a group of friends. The cebador/a drinks the first one or two gourd-fulls, testing the waters to ensure that only a smooth running mate is shared. Then the gourd is refilled with water and passed counter-clockwise with the bombilla (straw-filter) facing the recipient. Each person drinks the entire gourd: "you share the vessel, not the liquid." The recipient of the gourd has as much time as needed to finish the gourd-full. After the last few sips of the mate are gone, the gourd is returned with the bombilla facing the cebador/a. The gourd is refilled with hot water and follows around the circle, continuing in this fashion until the mate is lavado (flat). If someone has had enough mate, they simply say gracias (thank you) to indicate that they are finished.

10 Health Benefits of Yerba Mate Tea (Better Than Coffee) Yerba mate is a traditional South American brew that’s been said to offer the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate” all in one beverage. It was called “the drink of the gods” by many indigenous South Americans

Yerba mate is a traditional drink made from the dried leaves of an evergreen holly, Ilex paraguariensis, a native plant of South America.

The obvious and immediate benefits of yerba mate are increased energy and enhanced mental clarity, alertness, focus, and concentration.

Some of the health benefits that follow are less widely known, at least to those of us not living in a mate-drinking part of the world.

1. Yerba mate provides a smooth increase in energy.

Yerba mate is well-known for providing an energy boost that’s been described as gentle, clean, and calm.

Compared to the other most commonly used stimulants in the world — coffee, tea, kola nut, cocoa and guarana — yerba mate delivers the most balanced energy boost, according to Guayaki, North America’s top yerba mate distributor.

It rarely interferes with sleep and doesn’t cause the caffeine jitters.

You may have come across the claim that yerba mate contains no caffeine, but this is not true.

At 85 mg caffeine per 8 ounces, it contains more caffeine than tea but less than coffee.

2. Yerba mate boosts mental functions of all kinds. Everyone wants to be as smart, productive, focused, and creative as possible and yerba mate may just help you do that.

It enhances memory, mood, and alertness.

It makes you more motivated and productive by stimulating production of the neurotransmitter dopamine.

But besides caffeine, yerba mate contains two related compounds, theobromine and theophylline.

These three alkaloids work together to provide unique, mild stimulant effects, as they also do in green tea.

The Tim Ferriss Experiment: The Creativity Elixir He makes a special brew of yerba mate with ginger and turmeric that he calls “titanium tea.” his favorite brand by far is Cruz De Malta Yerba Mate.

Cruz De Malta

3. Yerba mate is a nutritional powerhouse loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Yerba mate is so loaded with nutrition that it contains practically all the micronutrients needed to sustain life.

4. Yerba mate has a long history of traditional medicinal uses.

Dr. Leslie Taylor is an herbalist and naturopath who has dedicated her life to exploring the healing properties of native, medicinal plants of the Amazon rain forest.

In her book The Healing Power of Rainforest Herbs, she lists dozens of uses for yerba mate including:

  • as a stimulant
  • as an overall tonic and digestive aid
  • as part of a weight loss regime
  • as a general nerve tonic for pain, fatigue, and depression
  • for allergies and sinusitis

5. Yerba mate can boost the immune system.

Yerba mate is high in compounds called saponins.

Saponins are natural emulsifiers that boost the immune system and have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

It is also helpful in modulating the overactive immune response seen with seasonal allergies.

6. Yerba mate tea can help you lose weight.

There’s some evidence that yerba mate can aid weight loss by reducing appetite, increasing energy expenditure, improving insulin sensitivity, and burning stored fat.

7. Yerba mate has a long history as a digestive and elimination tonic.

One traditional yerba mate benefit is for treating constipation, diarrhea, and indigestion.

8. Yerba mate can build strong bones, even without exercise.

Drinking yerba mate tea increases bone density, even in people who '’t exercise.

This was a somewhat surprising discovery since caffeine is associated with bone mineral loss and exercise is deemed critical for building strong bones.

9. Yerba mate helps keep your heart healthy.

Yerba mate is useful for heart-related conditions including heart failure, irregular heartbeat, and low blood pressure.

Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties protect the heart and cardiovascular system.

The theobromine in mate relaxes blood vessels allowing for better blood flow.

Drinking Yerba Mate: Traditionally, this brew is sipped from a gourd called a calabash through a silver straw called a bombilla.





Matcha Green Tea

Powerful Brain and Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea Matcha green tea, with more antioxidants, EGCG, and l-theanine than any superfood or drink, relieves stress, increases mental energy and lowers disease risk.


Of all teas, green tea is the least processed and widely considered one of the healthiest drinks on the planet. It is widely known for its antioxidant properties and the feelings of relaxed alertness it imparts to those who drink it.

And of all the kinds of green tea, one is considered the “champagne of teas” — matcha green tea. Matcha tea, with its unique tradition and processing methods, exceptional health-giving properties, and unsurpassed versatility, is a standout among teas.

Matcha plays a significant role in Japanese culture. It’s the only tea used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Matcha is still Japan’s most treasured and rare tea, and only exports 4% of it to other countries.





Caffeine Addiction

Caffeine Addiction and the Benefits of Quitting Caffeine has many health benefits but, if you’re dependent on it, there are side effects. Learn all about caffeine addiction and the benefits of quitting.

Billions of people start the day with a caffeinated drink — coffee, tea, yerba mate, energy drinks, or soda — depending on your age bracket and where you live. You probably like the energy, drive, and focus that caffeine gives you.

Caffeine is a psychoactive drug that affects the central nervous system. If you’ve ever experienced caffeine withdrawal symptoms like headache, brain fog, or nausea, you may need no convincing that it’s addictive.

And there are many proven health benefits of caffeine, especially when the source is naturally caffeinated drinks like coffee, matcha, and yerba mate.

Caffeine can enhance learning and memory, and reduce your risk of depression.

It can reduce your risk of diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, heart disease, and diabetes.

It may even help you live longer.

It increases levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, making you more motivated and productive and potentially a more valuable employee.

It also increases acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter responsible for memory and learning.

Caffeine Side Effects from Daily Use

Caffeine increases your stress hormones cortisol and epinephrine making you feel more stressed out, irritable and anxious.

It’s a major source of adrenal fatigue which can leave you feeling run down and exhausted even after a good night’s sleep.

Coffee in particular can cause heartburn, indigestion, and GERD, and mess with your intestinal flora.

Caffeine alters your neurotransmitter levels.

The relationship between caffeine and serotonin is complex, but there’s evidence that regular caffeine consumption decreases serotonin which is needed for good mood and good sleep.

It also inhibits the calming neurotransmitter GABA, leading to more anxiety and insomnia.

Caffeine Drug Interactions

If you take any prescription drugs, that alone may be reason enough to quit caffeine.

Caffeine should not be taken with many prescription medications. Drugs.com lists 83 of them.

[Caffeine Drug Interactions alcohol, ambien, aspirin, Benadryl, cymbalta, Tylenol, vitamin B12, vitamin D3, vitamin C, Xanax, Zyrtec. There are 9 disease interactions with caffeine which include: Cardiac Disease, Hypertension, Liver Disease, Renal Dysfunction, and Gerd... "Caffeine may also produce an increase in systemic vascular resistance, resulting in elevation of blood pressure. Therapy with products containing caffeine should be administered cautiously in patients with severe cardiac disease, hypertension, hyperthyroidism, or acute myocardial injury."]

Why Caffeine Makes You Tired

One of the most surprising side effects of caffeine is that it can make you tired.

That’s because caffeine does not provide true energy and is not even a direct stimulant.

Caffeine works indirectly by binding with receptors in your brain for adenosine, a brain chemical that acts like a brake on brain activity.

Adenosine helps you register that you are tired and need to rest.

When your system is flooded with caffeine, adenosine can no longer turn off your brain.

So your brain on caffeine is like a car with no brakes and the accelerator pedal jammed to the floor.

Caffeine creates a vicious cycle of temporary energy boosts with subsequent crashes, interrupted sleep, and a need for more caffeine.

One of the hallmarks of an addictive substance is that you build a tolerance to it.

Caffeine is no exception.

Whereas occasional caffeine consumers experience increased energy, alertness, and sociability when they have a cup of coffee, caffeine addicts need more and more of it just to function normally.

Caffeine Withdrawal Symptoms

If you’ve decided to quit caffeine, what withdrawal symptoms can you expect?

Some people experience mild symptoms, like feeling tired or having a headache.

Others can experience severe symptoms on a par with having a bad case of the flu.

spilled coffeeHere are the most common side effects experienced when you quit caffeine:

anxiety
brain fog and poor concentration
depression
fatigue and sleepiness
headache (mild to severe)
hot and cold spells
impaired general cognition
impaired motor skills
irritability
muscle aches and stiffness
nausea and/or vomiting
reduced motivation

How Long Does Caffeine Withdrawal Last?

If you are in the midst of caffeine withdrawal or contemplating kicking the habit, you’ll certainly want to know “how long is this torment going to last?”

The answer is “it depends.”

It depends on your ability to metabolize caffeine.

And this depends on your age, weight, and gender.

Women metabolize caffeine more slowly than men.

It also depends on your general health, what medications you take, whether or not you smoke, the state of your liver, and even your genes.

Once you’ve had your last dose of caffeine you can expect the following:

Symptoms normally start within 12 to 24 hours but can take up to 36 hours.

Withdrawal symptoms usually peak between 20 and 48 hours.

The worst side effects should generally be over within 2 days to 1 week, although sometimes it can take up to 12 days.

For some who are seriously addicted it can take several months to feel “as good as new.”

During this adjustment period many people continue to experience brain fog and lethargy.

Here are some things that can help you feel more like your usual self faster.

Switch to Green Tea

If you have been getting your caffeine from heavy-duty sources like coffee or energy drinks, switch to green tea instead of going for complete caffeine abstinence.

Green tea has much less caffeine — 25 mg per cup compared to 100 mg per cup in an average cup of coffee.

It also is a source of l-theanine, a naturally occurring relaxant that does a great job at rounding out caffeine jitters. Theanine actually changes your brain waves, putting you into the same relaxed state as meditation.

Take Adaptogenic Herbs

Adaptogens are herbs that increase your resilience to both physical and psychological stress.

By supporting adrenal function, they can simultaneously calm you and boost energy without being over-stimulating.

Some adaptogens to consider are ginseng, ashwagandha, Bacopa monnieri, and Rhodiola rosea.

All have been used for thousands of years and are well established as being both safe and effective.





Ashwagandha

What Is Ashwagandha? Ashwagandha, one of the most powerful herbs in Ayurvedic healing, has been used since ancient times for a wide variety of conditions, and is most well-known for its restorative benefits. In Sanskrit Ashwagandha means “the smell of a horse,” indicating that the herb imparts the vigor and strength of a stallion, and has traditionally been prescribed to help people strengthen their immune system after an illness.

Ashwagandha is frequently referred to as “Indian ginseng” because of its rejuvenating properties, even though botanically, ginseng and Ashwagandha are unrelated.

Belonging to the same family as the tomato, Ashwagandha is a plump shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers. It bears red fruit about the size of a raisin. The herb is native to the dry regions of India, northern Africa, and the Middle East, and today is also grown in more mild climates, including the United States.

Medical researchers have been studying Ashwagandha for years with great interest and have completed more than 200 studies on the healing benefits of this botanical. Some key examples of the healing effects of Ashwagandha are:

Protects the immune system
Helps combat the effects of stress
Improves learning, memory, and reaction time
Reduces anxiety and depression without causing drowsiness
Helps reduce brain-cell degeneration
Stabilizes blood sugar
Helps lower cholesterol
Offers anti-inflammatory benefits
Contains anti-malarial properties
Enhances sexual potency for both men and women

Ashwagandha as an Adaptogenic Herb

In Ayurveda, there are specific herbs with adaptogenic benefits, Ashwagandha is one of them. Adaptogens are substances (a combination of amino acids, vitamins, and herbs) that modulate your response to stress or a changing environment. Adaptogens help the body cope with external stresses such as toxins in the environment and internal stresses such as anxiety and insomnia.

How to Add Ashwagandha to Your Daily Diet

According to Ayurveda, our bodies are woven from food. The nutrients we ingest are metabolized into the energy and information that form our cells, tissues, and organs. Every day our bodies need essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to maintain our body’s delicate balance. Taking an Ashwagandha supplement is a highly effective way to create that balance.

The typical recommended dose is 600 to 1,000 mg. twice daily.

Ayurvedic Herbs

ASHWAGANDHA Ashwagandha is used for arthritis, anxiety, trouble sleeping (insomnia), tumors, tuberculosis, asthma, a skin condition marked by white patchiness (leukoderma), bronchitis, backache, fibromyalgia, menstrual problems, hiccups, and chronic liver disease.

Some people also use ashwagandha for improving thinking ability, decreasing pain and swelling (inflammation), and preventing the effects of aging.

Dr. Axe on ashwagandha If you are looking to restore your energy, look younger, and reverse disease then ashwagandha may be the herb you’re looking for. As you’re about to see, ashwagandha benefits are impressive... has shown incredible results for lowering cortisol and balancing thyroid hormones.

Ashwagandha has also been referred to as Indian ginseng because of its ability to enhance stamina and has extraordinary stress relieving properties.

There have been over 200 studies on Ashwagandha’s ability to:

Improve thyroid function
Treat adrenal fatigue
Reduce anxiety and depression
Combat effects of stress
Increase stamina and endurance
Prevent and treat cancer
Reduce brain cell degeneration
Stabilize blood sugar
Lower cholesterol
Boost immunity

In this article I’m going to discuss the benefits of ashwagandha in healing your thyroid, adrenal glands, improving mood and energy

Ashwagandha is a superstar when it comes to improving the health of your thyroid. Scientists '’t completely understand how adaptogens work, but we know that they can be extremely effective especially at balancing hormones.

One of the most incredible aspects about adaptogenic herbs like ashwagandha is that it can help people with both hypo and hyper thyroid issues. It has been shown to support a sluggish thyroid for people diagnosed with Hashimotos, and has been shown to improve the health of those with an overactive thyroid

Animal studies reveal ashwagandha has a thyroid hormone balancing effect. In a 20 days study mice were give ashwagandha and their T3 and T4 levels were analyzed along with lipid peroxidation (anti-oxidant protection). Significant increases in serum T4 were found which indicates this herb has a stimulatory effect on a sluggish thyroid.

Also, ashwagandha may benefit thyroid function because it greatly reduced lipid peroxidation by promoting scavenging of free radicals that cause cellular damage. These results prove ashwagandha can be useful in treating hypothyroidism.

There are currently millions of people who struggle with thyroid problems (many who '’t even know it) and ashwagandha may just be the solution they are searching for.

Ashwagandha has also been proven effective in supporting adrenal function helping you overcome adrenal fatigue and chronic stress.

Your adrenal glands are endocrine glands that are responsible for releasing hormones (cortisol and adrenaline) in response to stress on your body.

If your adrenals are overtaxed due to an overabundance of emotional, physical and mental stress, it can lead to a condition known as adrenal fatigue. As you can see from this chart below, if your adrenals become exhausted it can also disrupt your other hormones, including progesterone, which can cause infertility and lower DHEA — which can cause you to age faster

Medical studies have shown that ashwagandha improves cortisol levels, improves insulin sensitivity and naturally balances hormones.

I recommend supplementing with 500mg 1-2x daily

Myers VITAMIN B COMPLEX $38.97 - 512-721-0424

Vitamin B Complex offers a complete blend of eight B Vitamins in their most bioavailable, methylated forms.

*Discontinuing this product - Final Sale.

Supports vital energy production
Assists with methylation and detoxification
Helps maintain brain and nervous system health
Is crucial for supporting hormone production
Acts as an adaptogen to help the body deal with stress
Supports adrenal gland health and hormone production
Contains B vitamins in methylated and coenzyme forms

B Vitamins are critical to support healthy energy production. Many B vitamins cannot be made by your body. You must get them from the food you eat, and the supplements you take. B vitamins are essential in the production of red blood cells, nerve tissue, and even your DNA. They’re also essential in converting the food we eat into glucose, the primary source of fuel for your body’s cells. Glucose, however, must be broken down and converted into ATP in order to supply this energy to your cells, and my Vitamin B Complex plays a crucial role in this process!

My Vitamin B complex is your brain and nervous system’s best friend. Your brain health is critically linked to your B vitamin status. B’s are necessary for the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to your brain. Your brain uses 25% of all the oxygen you breathe in! The B complex vitamins are also involved in the maintenance of nerve tissue as well as the production of new nerve tissue. Nerves carry signals to and from your brain from all areas of your body. Furthermore, B complex vitamins play an important role in the production and maintenance of the myelin sheath that protects nerve endings from oxidation, damage, and ultimately, nerve death.

B Vitamins support healthy hair, skin and nails! Your B vitamin status is closely linked to the health and appearance of your hair, skin, and nails as B complex vitamins are involved in their growth and structure! My Vitamin B Complex has ideal amounts of B3, B6, B7 & B12, in the forms your body needs to support healthy and strong hair skin and nails!

My Vitamin B Complex supports stress levels and healthy adrenal function! Stress creates an increased demands for nutrient by the body, and B complex vitamins lead the charge in the fight. When we are under physical or emotional stress, our adrenal glands rise to the occasion by increasing stress hormone production in order to help our bodies deal with the stressors that trigger this response. The problem is, these stressors oftentimes stay with us for the long haul, creating a situation in which our adrenals are constantly being stimulated to help us deal with our ever more stressful lives. B vitamins are crucial in helping our bodies deal with and recover from stress, as well as play an integral functional role in adrenal health and hormone production.

If you have been exposed to toxic mold and/or heavy metals… detoxing from these harmful substances can be quite a challenge. Often times in these cases, methylation is severely impaired, and the body simply cannot process toxins like it could before the exposure. In these cases, the immune system is often overwhelmed, and Phase 1 Detoxification is bottlenecked as the body and liver do not have what they need in order to function optimally. Adding in my Vitamin B Complex supplies your body with the nutrients and methyl donors it requires in order to kickstart Phase 1 Detoxification, and start processing out heavy metals and biotoxins so you can reclaim your vitality.

My Vitamin B Complex is a fantastic source of Folate in the very best form! That’s right, most folate supplements on the market are unfortunately nothing more than synthetic folic acid which has been linked to cancer when taken in high amounts. Even many of the “high end” food based and co-enzyme B Complexes I researched contained hidden synthetic folic acid labeled as folate! When I custom formulated my Vitamin B Complex, I made sure to select only the most bioavailable forms of folate, known as L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate, or 5MTHF for short and 5-formyltetrahydrofolate (5-FTHF). L-Methylfolate helps the body in many ways, including helping to overcome genetic mutations at MTHFR!

Metabolic Maintenance B-Complex Phosphorylated Veg Capsules, 100 Count $28.82 ($0.29 / Count) Prime

How to Improve B-Vitamin Absorption Eight substances make up the vitamin B complex, including thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12.

Step 1

Eat a diet rich in protein, green vegetables and enriched grain products. Your body cannot store any of the substances included in the vitamin B complex -- you must replenish your body’s vitamin B stores every day. Eat a balanced diet to improve the way your body absorbs the B vitamins.

Step 2

Increase your consumption of animal protein. The cells in your stomach lining produce a special protein, called intrinsic factor, which helps you absorb vitamin B12 efficiently. Eating animal protein stimulates the production of intrinsic factor. Eat protein rich foods throughout the day. Vitamin B12 binds to protein in your digestive tract before your body absorbs it.

Step 3

Manage chronic conditions and stay healthy.

Step 4

Avoid alcohol, which can interfere with the way your body absorbs folic acid. Medicines like potassium supplements or acid-reducing drugs prevent absorption of vitamin B12 in some people.

Step 5

Consume animal sources of riboflavin, which is easier for your body to absorb than vegetable sources. Vitamin Basics states that at least 90 percent of the riboflavin in milk is in a free form which is more easily absorbed. Riboflavin is bound to proteins in most other sources, like in vegetables or whole grains.

Step 6

Improve your riboflavin absorption by maintaining a healthy balance of the other vitamins included in the B complex. Riboflavin, or vitamin B2, works with other vitamins B to release energy from carbohydrates, among other physiological tasks such as body growth and red blood cell production. Riboflavin is sensitive to exposure to light, so shield food high in riboflavin, like eggs and dairy products, from light.

Vitamin B Complex Deficiency Symptoms The vitamin B complex is a group of several vitamins, including vitamin B-1, also known as thiamin; vitamin B-2, also known as riboflavin; vitamin B-3, also known as niacin; vitamin B-5, also known as pantothenic acid; vitamin B-6, also known as pyridoxal phosphate; vitamin B-7, also known as biotin; vitamin B-9, also known as folate; and vitamin B-12, also known as cobalamin. A deficiency in B complex vitamins can cause several symptoms. If you think you might suffer from a B vitamin deficiency -- or you're part of a group, such as vegans, that face an increased risk of deficiencies -- then consult your doctor.

Skin Disorders

Many of the B complex vitamins are required for healthy skin. Deficiencies in these vitamins can cause several symptoms involving the skin, such as dermatitis, dry skin, cracks at the corners of the mouth, frequent bruising and wounds that require a long time to heal.

Fatigue

A deficiency in many of the B complex vitamins can cause symptoms relating to fatigue. Muscle weakness, lack of coordination and wasting away of muscle mass are all possible symptoms. Pain or soreness in the muscles or joints may also result. In certain cases of deficiency, numbness or tingling in the fingers and toes may occur

Additional Symptoms

Mental effects, such as confusion, headache, insomnia or irritability, may result from deficiencies in B complex vitamins. An increased sensitivity to light is another possible symptom. Anemia is also a common symptom of vitamin B deficiencies. Gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, may also develop

How Much Vitamin B Complex Should a Person Take in a Day? most healthy adult men should consume approximately 2.4 mcg of vitamin B-12, 1.3 mg of vitamin B-6, 400 mcg of folate, 5 mg of pantothenic acid and 30 mcg of biotin. Men need 16 mg of niacin, 1.2 mg of thiamin and 1.3 mg of riboflavin

The tolerable upper intake level is the maximum amount of a vitamin or mineral you can take without running the risk of experiencing unpleasant side effects.. Some B vitamins, such as vitamin B-12, thiamin, biotin, pantothenic acid and riboflavin, do not have tolerable upper intake levels. This means you are unlikely to experience adverse reactions when taking these vitamins, even if you take high doses. However, folate, vitamin B-6 and niacin do have a tolerable upper intake level. Getting more than 1,000 mcg a day of folate, 35 mg a day of niacin or 100 mg a day of vitamin B-6 may cause unpleasant side effects. Avoid taking a vitamin B complex supplement that contains more than these amounts.

The most common side effects of taking a vitamin B complex include diarrhea and abdominal cramps. More serious side effects include a tingling or redness of the skin and temporary nerve damage to the limbs. The folic acid in the supplement may mask a vitamin B-12 deficiency or may trigger a seizure in patients taking anticonvulsant medications when taken in excess. Taking too much of a vitamin B complex supplement over time can lead to certain health issues, including skin problems, high blood sugar levels, heart problems, blurred vision, gout and liver problems

Natural Allergy Remedies

1) Butterbur

The herb butterbur (Petasites hybridus) is a shrub-like plant that grows in northern Asia, Europe, and parts of North America. Extracts made from the herb have been used in folk medicine for migraines, stomach cramps, coughs, allergies and asthma.

Butterbur is being studied as a natural allergy remedy. Although how butterbur works is still not known, it is thought to work in a similar way to allergy medications by blocking the action of histamine and leukotrienes, inflammatory chemicals involved in allergic reactions.

Side effects of butterbur may include indigestion, headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrha, or constipation. Butterbur is in the ragweed plant family, so people who are allergic to ragweed, marigold, daisy, or chrysanthemum should avoid butterbur.

The raw herb as well as teas, extracts, and capsules made from the raw herb should not be used because they contain substances called pyrrolizidine alkaloids that can be toxic to the liver and kidneys and may cause cancer.

It is possible to remove the pyrrolizidine alkaloids from butterbur products.

For example, in Germany, there is a safety limit to the level of pyrrolizidine alkaloids allowed in butterbur products. The daily recommended dose cannot exceed 1 microgram per day.

2) Quercetin

Quercetin is a type of antioxidant called a flavonoid. Although there is still isn't enough research to conclude that quercetin is an effective allergy remedy, it is thought to prevent the release of the inflammatory chemical histamine, which is involved in allergy symptoms such as sneezing and itching.

Quercetin is found naturally in certain foods, such as apples (with the skin on), berries, red grapes, red onions, capers, and black tea. It is also available in supplement form. A typical dose for allergies and hay fever is between 200 and 400 milligrams three times a day.

3) Carotenoids

Carotenoids are a family of plant pigments, the most popular being beta-carotene. Although no randomized controlled trials show that carotenoids are effective remedies for allergies, a lack of carotenoids in the diet is thought to promote inflammation in your airways.

Good sources of carotenoids include apricots, carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato, spinach, kale, butternut squash, and collard greens.

4) Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Good sources of omega-3 fatty acids are:

a mild "blood-thinning" effect. If taking warfarin (Coumadin) or heparin or are at risk of bleeding complications, do not take fish oil without consulting a doctor. Fish oil should not be taken two weeks before or after surgery.

Flaxseed oil: 1 tablespoon two to three times a day.

Walnuts, 1 ounce (14 halves) a day

At the same time, reducing foods rich in arachi'ic acid might be wise. One study found an association between arachi'ic acid and hay fever. Although arachi'ic acid is essential for health, too much has been found to worsen inflammation. This means reducing intake of egg yolks, red meat, and shellfish.

6) Nettles

Nettle is a herbal remedy derived from the stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) bush. A number of studies suggest that nettle may help with allergy symptoms such as sneezing, nasal congestion, and itchiness, possibly by reducing inflammation.

nettle loses its anti-allergy power if not harvested and processed correctly. Look for a high quality powdered product that has been freeze dried or specially processed to retain the actives--costs more.

Use nettle when you would otherwise use an antihistamine drug to stop your misery. Many people take up to 3,000 mg per day of specially processed nettle leaf powder in capsules to relieve the temporary symptoms of hay fever and other allergic reactions, including animal allergy. Symptoms often begin to improve within 15 minutes, and the effect typically lasts for about four hours.

nettle tea helps cure mucus congestion and ease rheumatism.

Taken as a tea, it has been found to help cure mucus congestion, skin irritations, water retention, and diarrhea.

Applied externally, nettle tea — it is claimed — relieves rheumatism in both people and animals

Nasal Irrigation

7) Nasal Irrigation

A nasal irrigation, or nasal rinse, is often touted as a remedy for allergies or hay fever.

While a nasal rinse is generally considered safe, it may cause gagging, coughing, or ear pain in some cases. If you're thinking of using a nasal rinse to treat your allergies, asthma, post-nasal drip, or any other health condition

Ingredients

1/2 teaspoon of non-iodized salt (e.g. kosher, canning, pickling, or sea salt)

8 ounces filtered sterile room temperature water

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda





Soothanol Pain Reliver

Soothanol Order form enrolled in auto deliviery $49.95 /bottle. Use 2 drops; wash hands

Comment: I couldn't believe how well this product worked, I took it out and used it before reading the enclosed instructions... DO NOT USE BEFORE READING...I tried to drip a bit on my shoulder more than a drop came out, and it ran into my very tender underarm area, I was on fire. Then I noticed the pain in my shoulder was much less, I thought it was because the pain under my underarm was so bad, I didn't notice my shoulder but that wasn't it. The pain was so much less it was incredible. In another 6 hours I used it again this time carefully following the enclosed instructions. It is the best product I have ever used and I take oxycontin for this pain it is so bad. No oxy for me since I got it. If you can't get it at this reduced price it is definitely worth going to North Star. I will never be without this product again. I would give up food before I would give this up.

Comment: I decided to give Smoothanol a try because of the many positive reviews, and no reports of negative reactions. The label lists ingredients with (oil of) Wintergreen first and DMSO second, which means that DMSO is less than 50%. If you do a Google search on the other ingredients you will find they are all mild irritants which means they draw blood to the area where they are applied. In theory this should speed healing. Instructions say to apply two drops to intact skin and to wash hands immediately after application to avoid contacting eyes or other sensitive areas. This certainly makes sense.

I started using only one drop to my knee after showering. Immediately after application I felt a mild tingling sensation as the aching melted away. The aching slowly returned during the day, so it is not a permanent fix, but certainly gives some relief.

Later I found I could get more relief by first applying Aspercreme and then applying one drop of Smoothanol to the soft tissue arould the knee joint. I shake one drop of Smoothanol onto the bottom of an inverted china coffee mug and then dip the tip of my index finger into the drop to apply it to my knee. If more than one drop comes out I apply it all, but I ''t notice much difference in effectiveness.

Comment: I have been a soothanol user for several years and have over 100 converts that are buying their own. I carry a supply and if anyone complains of an ache or pain..then I ask them to try some for themselves to see if it works. The looks of amazement are priceless, but to relieve aches and pains that have been "impossible to deal with" or " never really going away" is worth gold.

I was able to stop taking medications for pain (did little good) and muscle relaxers (did little good) and lessen the number of deep tissue massages I had to get by 80%. A few drops of Soothanol x 2 rubbed into my back or shoulder keeps me going for days before needing a re-application. I usually take a good hot shower before applying the product. Please give it a try, follow the instuctions and get ready for some genuine relief.





Taurine

The Forgotten Longevity Benefits of Taurine June 2013 By Ian Macleavy

The Japanese have a life expectancy that is among the highest in the world. In fact, Okinawa, Japan’s famous “Island of Longevity,” likely has the world’s highest percentage of people over 100 years old.1

Undoubtedly, there are many factors that play into the life spans of the longest-living populations, but evidence shows that they all have one thing in common: high dietary intake of an amino acid called taurine.2

The connection between taurine and a long life is so strong that researchers have dubbed taurine, “The nutritional factor for the longevity of the Japanese.”3

Taurine promotes cardiovascular health, insulin sensitivity, electrolyte balance, hearing function, and immune modulation. In animal research, taurine protected against heart failure, reducing mortality by nearly 80%.4

Its benefits are so broad and extensive that scientists have described taurine as “a wonder molecule.”5

Taurine is found abundantly in healthy bodies.6 However, certain diets, particularly vegetarian or vegan diets, lack adequate amounts of taurine.7,8 Disease states—including liver, kidney, or heart failure, diabetes, and cancer—can all cause a deficiency in taurine.9-11 And aging bodies often cannot internally produce an optimal amount of taurine, making supplementation vital.12

human studies have shown that supplementing with just 1.5 grams of taurine a day can restore taurine levels to those in healthy control subjects

in adult diabetics, supplementation with 1.5 grams of taurine daily for just 14 days can reverse diabetes-induced abnormalities in arterial stiffness and in the ability of the vasculature to respond to changes in blood flow or pressure.23

Additional animal and cell culture studies have revealed that taurine supplementation is effective against diabetic complications as well. Taurine supports nerve fiber integrity, potentially slowing or reversing painful diabetic neuropathy.26-29 And in the retina, another target of destructive elevated blood glucose, taurine fights glucose-induced oxidant stress and preserves the health of light-sensing cells in diabetic retinopathy.30-32 Kidney damage, another consequence of diabetes, can be minimized with taurine supplementation in diabetic animals.33

Taurine has powerful effects on the heart and blood vessels. People with higher levels of taurine have significantly lower rates of dying from coronary heart disease.1,34 Additionally, they have lower body mass index, lower blood pressure, and lower levels of dangerous lipids. Many different mechanisms account for these powerful effects on the heart and blood vessels.

In animal models of hypertension, taurine supplementation lowers blood pressure by reducing the resistance to blood flow in the blood vessel walls and by minimizing nerve impulses in the brain that drive blood pressure up.35,36 Oral taurine supplementation has been found to reduce the arterial thickening and stiffness characteristic of atherosclerosis, to restore arteries’ responses to beneficial endothelial nitric oxide, and to reduce inflammation (a direct contributor to cardiovascular disease).34,35

A study of patients needing coronary bypass surgery showed that consuming a liquid drink containing 3 grams of taurine, combined with 3 grams carnitine, 150 mg CoQ10, and basic multivitamin nutrients, reduced left-sided ventricular volume during the heart’s resting phase (diastole).37





Carnitine

Carnitine Carnitine, derived from an amino acid, is found in nearly all cells of the body. Its name is derived from the Latin carnus or flesh, as the compound was isolated from meat. Carnitine is the generic term for a number of compounds that include L-carnitine, acetyl-L-carnitine, and propionyl-L-carnitine [1-2].

Carnitine plays a critical role in energy production. It transports long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria so they can be oxidized ("burned") to produce energy. It also transports the toxic compounds generated out of this cellular organelle to prevent their accumulation. Given these key functions, carnitine is concentrated in tissues like skeletal and cardiac muscle that utilize fatty acids as a dietary fuel [1-2].

Healthy children and adults do not need to consume carnitine from food or supplements, as the liver and kidneys produce sufficient amounts from the amino acids lysine and methionine to meet daily needs [1-3].

What foods provide carnitine?

Animal products like meat, fish, poultry, and milk are the best sources. In general, the redder the meat, the higher its carnitine content. Dairy products contain carnitine primarily in the whey fraction [1,3,5]. The carnitine content of several foods is listed in Table 1.

Carnitine occurs in two forms, known as D and L, that are mirror images (isomers) of each other. Only L-carnitine is active in the body and is the form found in food [1,6].

Absorption and metabolism of carnitine

Adults eating mixed diets that include red meat and other animal products obtain about 60–180 milligrams of carnitine per day [6]. Vegans get considerably less (about 10–12 milligrams) since they avoid animal-derived foods. Most (54–86%) dietary carnitine is absorbed in the small intestine and enters the bloodstream [1,6].

The kidneys efficiently conserve carnitine, so even carnitine-poor diets have little impact on the body's total carnitine content [1,5]. Rather than being metabolized, excess carnitine is excreted in the urine as needed via the kidneys to maintain stable blood concentrations.

What are some current issues and controversies about carnitine?

Carnitine has been studied extensively because it is important to energy production and is a well-tolerated and generally safe therapeutic agent [7]. Researchers prefer to use acetyl-L-carnitine in research studies because it is better absorbed from the small intestine than L-carnitine and more efficiently crosses the blood-brain barrier (i.e., gets into brain tissue) [8].

Aging

A decline in mitochondrial function is thought to contribute to the aging process. Carnitine may be involved because its concentration in tissues declines with age and thereby reduces the integrity of the mitochondrial membrane [12]. Research in aged rats found supplementation with high doses of acetyl-L-carnitine and alpha-lipoic acid (an antioxidant) to reduce mitochondrial decay [13-15]. The animals also moved about more and improved their performance on memory-requiring tasks. At present there are no equivalent studies of this kind in humans. However, a meta-analysis of double-blind, placebo-controlled studies suggests that supplements of acetyl-L-carnitine may improve mental function and reduce deterioration in older adults with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease [16]. In these studies, subjects took 1.5–3.0 grams/day of acetyl-L-carnitine for 3–12 months.

Cardiovascular and peripheral arterial disease

Several studies have examined the effectiveness of supplemental carnitine in the management of cardiac ischemia (restriction of blood flow to the heart) and peripheral arterial disease (whose most important symptom is poor circulation in the legs, known as intermittent claudication) [17-18]. Because levels of carnitine are low in the failing heart muscle, supplemental amounts might counteract the toxic effects of free fatty acids and improve carbohydrate metabolism [17]. In short-term studies, carnitine has had anti-ischemic properties when given orally and by injection.

Claudication results from an inadequate supply of oxygen-rich blood to the legs and leads to an accumulation of acetylcarnitine in muscle due to its incomplete utilization. Patients with peripheral arterial disease who develop claudication have significant impairments in exercise performance and have difficulty walking even short distances at a slow speed [18]. Research indicates that carnitine might improve the performance of skeletal muscles in the leg. In one European multicenter clinical trial, supplementation with L-carnitine (in the form of propionyl-L-carnitine at 2 g/day for 12 months) in patients with moderate to severe claudication significantly improved maximal walking distance and perceived quality of life compared to patients receiving placebo [21].

A similar multicenter trial in the United States and Russia found that the same daily dose and form of carnitine administered for 6 months in patients with disabling claudication significantly improved walking distance and speed, reduced bodily pain, enhanced physical function, and improved perceived health state compared to patients in the control group [22]. The authors of a systematic review and meta-analysis that included these and 12 other randomized clinical trials concluded that propionyl-L-carnitine significantly increases peak walking distance in patients with claudication [23].

Other research, however, has raised concerns about the cardiovascular effects of chronic exposure to carnitine. A 2013 study that included both rodents and 2,595 humans undergoing elective cardiac evaluation found that L-carnitine is metabolized by intestinal microbiotia to trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO), a proatherogenic substance that is associated with cardiovascular disease risk [24]. Due to differences in intestinal bacteria composition, omnivorous study participants produced more TMAO than vegans or vegetarians following consumption of L-cartinine. The study also found dose-dependent associations between fasting plasma L-carnitine concentration and risk of coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease, and overall cardiovascular disease, but only among participants with concurrently high TMAO levels. The researchers noted that these findings could partly explain the link between high levels of consumption of red meat (a rich source of carnitine) and increased cardiovascular disease risk. More research is needed to fully understand the effects of carnitine on cardiovascular health.

' L-CARNITINE OVERVIEW INFORMATION It is also used as a replacement supplement in strict vegetarians

L-carnitine is used for conditions of the heart and blood vessels including heart-related chest pain, congestive heart failure (CHF), heart complications of a disease called diphtheria, heart attack, leg pain caused by circulation problems (intermittent claudication), and high cholesterol.

The body can convert L-carnitine to other amino acids called acetyl-L-carnitine and propionyl-L-carnitine. But, no one knows whether the benefits of carnitines are interchangeable. Until more is known, ''t substitute one form of carnitine for another.

When you have a UTI, caffeine, alcohol, spicy food, nicotine, carbonated drinks, and artificial sweeteners can irritate your bladder further. This makes it harder for your body to heal.Treating UTI's

Enjoy Parsley Water Aside from the fact that it makes a wonderfully refreshing after dinner drink, parsley water can help relieve a urinary tract infection and speed up the healing process by acting as a diuretic. Diuretics are used to treat a number of problems, and work by increasing the amount of sodium your kidneys excrete in urine. When they excrete sodium, they take water along with it, and the amount of fluid in your blood goes down. Less fluid means less pressure on the arteries, this is why it’s used to treat high blood pressure. In the case of UTI’s we just want to encourage an increased amount of urine to keep flushing out bacteria and relieving discomfort. Parsley is thought to work by inhibiting a Na+-K+ (sodium and potassium) pump. By inhibiting the reabsorption, sodium levels rise. To balance out the concentration, kidneys excrete more sodium in the urine. More sodium means more water which means an overall increased output of urine. You will need… -Roughly 1 cup of fresh parsley OR 2 tablespoons of dried parsley -1-2 cups of water Directions Bring water to a boil and add the parsley if you are using fresh-which is preferable in my opinion. Reduce the heat so it simmers steadily and let the leaves infuse the water like this for 6-10 minutes. Strain the leaves out and drink the water hot. If it’s a hot summer day, pop it in the fridge for refreshing parsley “iced tea.” If you use dried parsley, simply place it in a cup of boiling water, cover, and steep for 8 minutes before straining and drinking. Chew Some Celery Seeds Celery seeds also act as a diuretic, due mainly to one of the constituents of celery oil, butylphthalide. If parsley water just isn’t your thing, chewing a handful of celery seeds can help increase the production of urine. If you want to get some more fluid, make celery seed water (follow the method for dried parsley.) You will need… -A handful of celery seeds Directions Once or twice a day, snack on celery seeds right after a meal-it can also help with digestion, so why not? If you do this daily, some anecdotal evidence suggests it can help prevent UTI’s.

Avoid the 4 C’s Chocolate, citrus, carbonation, and caffeine-these are 4 things that you should avoid if you find yourself getting UTI’s frequently. All of them can irritate the lining of the bladder, and potentially make it easier for bacteria to adhere. Citrus will increase the acidity of your urine, which will make it even more painful to pee. When possible, try to steer clear of as much of these as you can-it’s not easy, but it can make life more bearable. On the other hand, some people can find citrus actually helps, hence the “maybe” in the title.

D-Mannose is by far the most effective supplement for both treatment and prevention of UTIs.

Similar to glucose in structure, D-mannose is a naturally occurring sugar that is found in a number of fruits, including apples, blueberries, and cranberries. This sugar is the reason that cranberry juice has been commonly recommended as a UTI treatment, though it is far easier to get the recommended dosage from a supplement.

D-mannose is effective because it attaches to E. coli bacteria, causing them to stick to each other and preventing them from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract. The bacteria can then easily be eliminated from the body during urination.

D-mannose, even in large quantities, does not cause any adverse side effects, and cannot be metabolized the way other sugars can, meaning this supplement is safe for diabetics and others who are avoiding sugar for any reason. This treatment is also safe for children and the elderly.

Symptom relief can be seen as quickly as the following day, and most symptoms are generally resolved after 48 hours of treatment.

Additionally, taking D-mannose during a time where you feel you are most prone to UTIs, such as prior to intercourse or during prolonged antibiotic treatment, can help prevent a UTI from ever developing in the first place. This is especially helpful for those who are prone to chronic UTIs and want to be able to engage in normal life activities without fear of infection.

The typical dose of D-mannose for UTI treatment is 500 mg [1 tablespoon] in capsule or powder form, taken in a glass of water or juice every two to three hours for five days. It is a good practice to continue taking the supplement even after symptoms have diminished to ensure complete elimination of the bacteria in the urinary tract. This dose can also be taken as a preventative, or prophylactic, method. D-mannose Powder, Now Foods 6 Ounce $26.48 ($4.41 / Ounce) Free Shipping for Prime Members

ONLINE Holistic Health Medical doctors and pharmaceutical companies strongly argue against the use of supplements because they are not regulated, and therefore a particular supplement’s potency cannot be ascertained. They further argue that there isn’t enough valid research to prove that this or that supplement is indeed effective. “Valid” research meaning only that which comes from the pharmaceutical companies. Research that does not originate with pharmaceutical companies seems to be ignored.

The problem with these arguments is that the “so-called” research conducted by conventional medicine and pharmaceutical companies is often less than credible. Money is poured into “pharmaceutical research” that is later retracted when a drug is taken off the market because it has proven to be not only unsafe, but in fact, harmful! Another problem is that people are told that they do not need vitamins or supplements unless they are sold as a pharmaceutical drug. For example, NIASPAN®, which is far more expensive than niacin sold as a supplement.

It is true that supplement companies are not regulated. However, it is sad that it is not common knowledge that there are indeed many supplement companies that carry pharmaceutical grade supplements, and have eliminated the inconsistency of potency, inflated cost, and do not require a prescription. In order to determine which supplement companies adhere to pharmaceutical grade standards, visit GMP Certified Companies, or call the vitamin company and ask for a “third-party assay” with respect to the supplement. Having a third-party assay means that the supplement company has obtained a lab analysis from a non-affiliated party that tests the quality and quantity of the substance. In other the words, you are buying exactly what the label claims.

There are other means to assure the quality of your supplement. One such way is purchasing supplements from companies that comply with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), which ensures that each supplement is held to a level of quality that the consumer can rely on.

You need to be aware of the difference between GMP compliance and GMP certification (see the appendix to see if your brand makes the list). GMP compliance refers to a company that in actuality is monitoring itself with respect to adhering to GMP standards. A GMP certification means that outside auditors ensure adherence to GMP standards. In other words, there is a third party assay.

Unfortunately, GMP certification is not free and requires an investment to ensure quality and implementation, which is an ongoing process. It is for this reason that many nutritional manufacturers do not have GMP certifications. However, without the GMP certification, you cannot be sure if they are adhering to GMP requirements; thus, the quality of your supplement is in question.

GMP-Certified Companies:

  • Anabolic Labs
  • Earthrise Nutritionals
  • LifeTree Manufacturing
  • Metagenics, Inc.
  • Nature’s Products
  • NOW Foods
  • Solgar, Inc.

GMP Certified Companies

Determining Supplement Quality There has been a dramatic increase in the use of nutritional supplements over the last several years, with many relying on these alternatives as a means to prevent and treat disease.

A consumer should know that the grade, form, purity, bioavailability and third party verification all contribute to the effectiveness of the product they're ingesting.

Pharmaceutical grade is the highest quality grade of vitamins, meaning the purity, dissolution and absorption meet the highest regulatory standard verified by an outside party. Pharmaceutical grade vitamins may be available without a prescription, but they are typically only sold by licensed health care practitioners.

If you ''t know if the supplements you are purchasing are pharmaceutical grade, make sure the company is Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certified and find out by whom they are certified. You may also want to make sure they perform laboratory analysis on their products, find out what kind of assays they perform on their products, and see if they do disintegration studies on their supplements. You may also want to see if the company performs human trials to ensure they are safe and effective.

Seeking out a health care provider trained in integrative medicine can be a step in the right direction to help you through the process of finding a high quality nutritional supplement that will meet your personal needs.

Nutri-West - GB-Plus 90 Tablets Ox bile is combined with cleansing herbs to support the liver and gall bladder.

Comments: I love it. I had it prescribed to help with digestion issues which was causing low back pain. If I do not take this; I am in pain. I was told to take two per day but that gets too pricey being on a limited income so I only take one per day and it seems to do the trick.

They reduced my wife's gall stones so that she did not require surgery.

I had my gallbladder out 7 years ago, and these save my life! They help break down and digest my food when I can tell my body isn't!

Pharmaceutical Grade Supplements Nearly 75% of the world population takes some type of supplement each day. There are literally thousands of brands and millions of products to choose from. Is there really a difference between them?

Fact #1: The FDA manufacturing standards are not rigid enough for Healing*Edge Science but are improving every year as research delivers warnings about the dangers of many different chemical such as FD&C dyes, sodium benzoate, dextrose, ethycellulose, and propylene glycol.

The FDA does not monitor the contents or purity of a supplement nor the source of a nutritional ingredient. The practitioners of Healing*Edge Sciences do. We have for over a decade.

In most cases, Impure ingredients are used by many companies. The FDA does not require manufacturers to list these ingredients (on the nutritional labels) if they are not added when making the final dosage form. Many times the raw materials may contain only 90% or less of the listed ingredients along with 10% or more corn starch and lactose. Lactose and corn are known allergens for some people. These items have been known to cause digestive disturbances and weaken the immune system. A conscientious company will not compromise the integrity of a product with such raw materials.

Pharmaceutical Grade: What does it mean?

There are basically three different grades of raw materials used in products they are:

  • Pharmaceutical Grade - meets pharmaceutical standards
  • Food Grade - meets standards set for human consumption
  • Feed Grade - meets standards set for animal consumption

As we age our enzyme bank depletes. The conversion of food and vitamins are more difficult and the breakdown can be challenging. Absorption into our cells is minimized often resulting in malnutrition. The proper cofactors must be included in a formulation in order to get nutritional benefits. Ratio balancing of the individual ingredients is another fact not to be ignored. Nutritional supplements are available in several forms. Consumers can buy them in tablets, liquids, or capsules. Let's review each one separately.

Tablets are usually very hard consisting of binders and heavy coatings in order to maintain their shape. As you have already learned, binders can be invasive to the body if not carefully selected. Manufacturers produce tablets because they are economical. They tend to force many ingredients into one tablet trying to convince the consumer that their needs are met in one magic pill. Very few companies have mastered the proper technique of tablet making.

Liquids supplements are easy to absorb but require heavy dosing in order to achieve desired RDA allowances. They are cumbersome when traveling and tend to taste unpleasant. Often the taste must be disguised by some type of sweetener. Some sweeteners are harmful while others are perfectly acceptable. Know which sweetener is in the products your considering.

Capsules tend to be the industry's favorite. The capsule is usually made of gelatin allowing easy breakdown of the nutrients inside. For the vegetarian there are capsules made from vegetable sources although they tend to cost more. Like tablets capsules can have fillers. This is 'e primarily to make the capsule look full and act as a non-caking agent.

Absorption of nutrients can only be attained by the proper catalyst accompanying it. Take iron for example. People can take all the iron they want but without folic acid and B-12 it can not reach the cells. A clear understanding of vitamins and nutrition is crucial prior to taking a nutrient. Trust the professionals at Healing*Edge Sciences they have years of experience behind them. "Supplemental Facts" on the label do not always tell the facts. In most cases they ''t even come close. News journalists have recently discovered vitamin and nutritional products do not contain the milligrams listed on the label. Obviously, it is an impossible task for any agency to monitor every supplement that is on the market. This is a serious concern for Healing*Edge which is why specific procedures must be met and verified to insure consumer safety.

How do you find quality vitamins?

Supplements do not only work because of the ingredients. They work because of the way they are manufactured. Be brand specific when taking supplements. You will be surprised at the difference.

For anyone that has had an episode of c diff., this is your life saver. After having a weakened immune system from prolonged use of antibiotics, I developed c diff., went to urgent care and they gave me flagyl for 10 days and nothing else. Went back to the urgent care from a Reoccurrence 5days after the course and was prescribed 3 more weeks of flagyl and to see a Gi specialist and I am so thankful that I did because she prescribed this to me and claimed it also fights against it and has been proven to be successful. I was doubtful, feeling like hell and that this might be the end of me and nothing will work. I was wrong, it's been 3 weeks without a reoccurrence hallelujah. I DO NOT LEAVE REVIEWS, EVER. but after this horrific bug I want to help others find out about this. Even if I did not have c diff I would take this. My anxiety is down close to none, I've lost a couple lbs of excess weight since my food is processing better, and I feel better than I ever did. Please take this if you have any issues with things like c diff or anxiety, diarrea, hell take it for anything. I am 25 and I take 2 a day considering I am on recovery or else I would take 1. There are some bloating side effects but eventually it will stop. Good luck!!!!

Frankly, this is a miracle supplement! I bought mine in an attempt to battle what I believe is intestinal Candida - and I had tried the Candida Diet and all other kinds of supplements and restricted diets with limited success. I went to a GI doc who is a friend and client, and found out that he (and most docs) really don't understand a lot about the gut biome and Candida Albicans - but they won't admit it. Once I got to four caps a day, my symptoms disappeared and it didn't matter what I ate. Keep in mind that I don't eat sugary foods and prefer meat and vegetables anyway - but I ate a lot of stuff that would make Candida very happy and Florastor somehow keeps Candida at bay and maybe even kills it (there are scientific articles that substantiate Candida being killed by the excretions of Saccaromyces Boulardii (Florastor). I combined Florastor with pancreatic enzymes (two before every meal) and take Innovix 31 strain probiotics, but my symptoms didn't completely disappear until I upped the Florastor dosage to four capsules a day (two AM and two PM). I tried garlic supplements, milk thistle (made me sick), Kyolic Candida Cleanse and on and on. So, today, I went to an allergist / immunoligist and got tested for food allergies (thinking about gluten sensitivity or allergy) and tested clean on 75 different food types. Fortunately, my allergist and friend of 40+ years is a brilliant doctor and a scientist - who freely admitted that dealing with intestinal disorders like Candidiasis is mostly art and very little science. Maybe that is why there are so many people searching for help. My allergist really liked the program I got to on my own and was impressed that I had read all the scientific and clinical articles. From his point of view, the only way to deal with gut issues is trial and error - and whatever works is good. So, what's bugging me is likely Candida Albicans (according to my allergist), but it could be SIBO or other things - but all I know is that Florastor sealed the deal in my situation.

My symptoms were a constant, low-level, lower abdominal "ache" - not cramps exactly, but not when I slept or in the morning. The pain would become noticeable in the afternoon and continue until I laid down for bed. Taking Gas-X would relieve the pain, and I had a lot of gas. Gas comes from fermentation in your gut, and the by-products of Candida metabolism make you feel crappy - which I did. So, no two people are alike, but, if like me, you took a lot of antibiotics and/or pain meds that screwed-up your gut functions (I had surgery earlier this year followed by sepsis and lots of IV antibiotics as well as oral antibiotics) and probably experienced the destruction of a good chunk of my but biome that opened the door for Candida or other aggressive critters, I would urge you to see a doctor just to make sure it isn't something worse - like cancer - and then give Florastor a try with digestive enzymes and quality probiotics. Hopefully it will help you like it did me.

I recommend probiotics to everyone. In fact, probiotics are one of the four essential supplements that I recommend for everyone to take daily. We have more bacteria in and on our bodies than we have actual cells in our body. We live symbiotically with them, and when they are in balance, they promote optimal digestion and immunity, both of which are crucial to every aspect of your health and well being.

My Probiotic Capsules 100 Billion are some of the strongest probiotics on the market today. When I formulated my 100 Billion strength probiotics, I chose 4 of the most important strains, and made absolutely sure that there were enough viable CFU’s in each capsule to support maximum digestive health and immune function. Take a look at the probiotics at your local health-food store. You’ll find that most of them don’t even come close the potency of my Probiotic Capsules 100 Billion.

What about viability and refrigeration? I made absolutely certain that my probiotic capsules are sealed in nitrogen-purged aluminum blister packs to serve as protection from factors proven to compromise the stability of probiotics such as heat, light, moisture, and oxygen. They do not require refrigeration during shipping or storage.

Probiotics support optimal digestive health and can help you ‘beat the bloat.’ While it’s true that probiotics live in your sinuses, your nostrils, on your skin, and even in your mouth, most of the probiotics in your body reside in your digestive tract, specifically your large intestine and colon. When stress, illness, antibiotic use, or a poor diet compromise the probiotic bacteria population in these areas of the body, digestive symptoms are imminent. Gas, bloating, and a disruption of normal bowel habits are often the first signs that something has gone awry. Supplementation with a top quality probiotic can help repopulate these areas with beneficial bacteria, often helping to restore normal digestion, and helping you ‘beat the bloat.

Probiotics assist with healthy weight loss. It’s absolutely true.

Probiotics are critical for a fine tuned immune system. If you haven’t heard me say it before, allow me to say it again here: 60-80% of your body’s immune system is located in your gut. This is in large part because your gut microbiology is so critical to the way your immune system operates. Probiotics also support the adaptive immune system as well as immune homeostasis and your body’s inflammation response.

Probiotics support regular and healthy bowel habits. Did you know that probiotic bacteria account for up to 70% of the bulk of a healthy bowel movement? Without adequate probiotic bacteria in your large intestine and colon, stool often does not have enough bulk to stimulate peristalsis (the contractions of the colon that help you have a bowel movement). Well formed stool is just one piece of the puzzle though. Your large intestine and colon should also be protected by a thin, healthy layer of mucus. This layer helps bowel movements pass easily, but without adequate probiotic bacteria, it is often compromised, leading to poorly formed and difficult to pass stool.

Suggested Use: Take one capsule with water daily.

Contents: 30 Capsules

V transcript: Irregularity, gas, bloating, cramps, constipation (or a combo!) at the WORST possible times? There’s a reason your probiotic supplement does nothing to help. Most are USELESS! (Discover the two things yours must have—that most don’t.)

It’s because your gut bacteria…10 to 50 trillion bacteria or more…as much as 2.2 pounds of bacteria…is out of balance.

Most probiotics on the market today are worthless. If you’re taking one of those…it’s like flushing money down the toilet (instead of what you should be flushing down the toilet!).

It’s probably because they’re missing the two things every quality probiotic must have. If yours doesn’t have these things, you are wasting your time and money. Both of which I know are precious to you.

Most people don’t know that when your gut isn’t in tip top shape, it can affect every part of your body. Not just your digestion. Your mood, your heart, your immune system, even your brain. Your gut is the epicenter of good health.

Your gut—also known as your GI tract—processes food and removes waste and toxins.

And it’s full of trillions and trillions of bacteria! Think about that for a second. Your entire body, head to toe, inside and out, is made up of microscopic cells. Yet in your gut, there are more bacteria than there are cells in your body.

Your Gut is a Greenhouse


And you, the gardener, have to make sure each plant is each getting the right water, soil, sunlight, and nutrients.

But you wouldn’t give an orchid the same care as a cactus, would you? A sunflower and a succulent have drastically different needs. But they each add something unique and special to your greenhouse.

These different plants are like the good bacteria in your gut.

But weeds and pests…they’re also in the greenhouse. There’s no way to keep them out entirely. The weeds, they fight for space. They and the bugs attack your plants and kill some—kill many. That’s the bad bacteria. The kind that can lead to problems.

Eventually, there can be more bad than good. And your greenhouse becomes dark, dry, overgrown, and full of pests.

If you occasionally feel gassy, bloated, constipated, crampy…if your bathroom visits come on suddenly or aren’t regular…

And, surprisingly, as you’re about to see…if your blood pressure, cholesterol, or blood sugar aren’t where you want it…if you struggle to lose weight…if you get flustered or moody easily…

It all could be because you need more good bacteria in your gut.

And that’s why you need to take a probiotic.

First Key to the Right Probiotic

Remember, all the good bacteria in your gut are probiotics. And there are many kinds. They’re called strains. And solid science shows that they each do different good things for your body.

As a leading medical journal recently put it, “the positive effects of probiotics are strain-specific and the idea of a ‘universal strain,’ that would provide at once all the benefits associated with probiotics, is unrealistic.”

This is the first secret to a beneficial probiotic. One that has multiple strains. A “blend” or “complex” that shows they took the time to put together a quality product.

But probiotics can help make your gut lining stronger. To help prevent Leaky Gut.

And you may lose weight too.

Why Your Weight Loss Efforts Aren’t Working

That’s because scientists also figured out that the less bifidobacteria you have, the more fat you could have.

That’s right. Those extra pounds you’ve been lugging around—maybe for decades—it’s not your fault!

In fact, Martin Blaser, chair of the Department of Medicine and professor of microbiology at NYU School of Medicine told The New Yorker, “Bad eating habits are not sufficient enough to explain the worldwide explosion in obesity . . . With each generation there is a heavier impact on the early-life microbiome. And it means we are less and less able to metabolize the food we eat.”

So: Your gut has been working against you from a young age…making it almost impossible to lose weight! Is it all starting to make sense now? The diets, the exercise, the supplements…the many, many things you’ve tried that just haven’t worked? Finally, we know why. It’s kind of a relief, right?

Of course that doesn’t mean you can eat whatever you want. An unhealthy diet that leads to weight gain—the so-called Western Diet that’s full of trans fats and simple sugars and lacking in fiber and nutrients… That all upsets your gut balance. Those bad foods feed the weeds and pests in your greenhouse.

But you’re in luck!

A leading health journal confirms that taking probiotics may help reduce excessive hunger and eating…control weight gain…and lower fat mass—all without cutting calories!

And it reiterates what I’ve been saying—the first key to a quality probiotic—that a supplement with multiple strains, like Peak Biome, is “a more effective strategy” for weight loss than one with just a single strain.

Studies show that lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacterium lactis lowered body weight and BMI. That bifidobacterium breve lowered fat mass. All of these and more are in Peak Biome. It’s why I was happy to get a note from a user just recently, saying, “Peak Biome is helping me lose weight.”

Comfortable digestion, losing weight…these are the two main things you think of when you think of a probiotic.

But it goes so far beyond that.

Good Digestion is Just the Beginning

Remember, good health begins in your gut. I think we can all agree that one of the—if not the—biggest players in overall health is your heart.

Not only will losing weight put less strain on your heart… Probiotics are showing a direct effect on cardiovascular health, too.

More and more evidence shows probiotics can help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Especially the proper ratio between LDL and HDL. And they can help you keep your blood pressure, inflammation, and blood sugar in a healthy range.

This chart shows which specific strains help keep your ticker running smoothly:

Healthy Cholesterol Streptococcus thermophiles, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium longum, Lactobacillus casei
Healthy Blood Pressure Lactobacillus casei, Streptococcus thermophiles, Lactobacillus acidophilus
Healthy Blood Sugar Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium bifidum

Feed Your Second Brain

The gut plays such a big role in your brain health that I could have devoted this entire presentation to just that!

In fact, scientists call the gut the “second brain.” That’s how close they are.

Think about it. Ever get a stomach ache before you have an important meeting, or have to give a speech, or anything nerve-wracking? Or ever have trouble concentrating when your stomach is gurgling like there’s an alien inside?

That’s because there are more nerves in your gut than there are even in your spinal column. They transmit messages to and from the brain.

When you feel stressed, anxious, or angry, your brain tells your adrenal system to release stress chemicals. Those disrupt your digestion, can cause gas, bloating, heartburn…

On the other hand, your gut produces neurotransmitters. Those are the brain chemicals you need to feel calm, balanced, optimistic, energized, and focused. But when your gut isn’t functioning properly—if your once beautiful greenhouse is dark and dry and overrun with weeds—it can’t make enough of those feel-good chemicals.

That’s why you may sometimes feel confused, forgetful, unmotivated, even sad and anxious, and you don’t know why…

And those are all feelings you can flip upside-down with a quality probiotic.

“The idea that probiotic bacteria administered to the intestine could influence the brain seemed almost unbelievable.” That’s what the authors of a study in the Indian Journal of Pharmacology said—at first.

Then they saw what happened to mice whose memories were not up to par. But when they got probiotics…those memory problems didn’t happen.

The researchers were amazed. They followed up with, “Rather than remedies for memory problems such as omega-3, which addresses brain health, a regular diet that includes probiotics may prove to be more effective.”

Isn’t it fascinating how the body is so interconnected?

You may never have thought that you were feeling down in the dumps because of your gut!

Neither probably did the 124 people—average age 61—whom the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported took probiotics during a three-week study.

The probiotics were able to improve the mood of the people whose mood started out poor.

I don’t know about you, but a happy mood is one of my most important health “musts.” Without a good attitude, nothing much else matters!

Well you’ve probably noticed a theme by now… Your immune system—70% to 80% of it—is in your gut! It’s supposed to help protect you from unhealthy bacteria and toxins that might lurk in your food.

Nasty bacteria survive in your gut by banding together beneath a slimy film called biofilm. Run your tongue over your teeth for a sec—feel that slime? That’s biofilm. Remember I told you that your GI tract starts in your mouth. The more biofilm you have in your mouth, the more susceptible you may be to growing unhealthy bacteria.

Especially candida. Now, the yeast called candida is considered a normal part of your microbiome—your greenhouse. It’s so normal that it’s estimated that 70% of Americans have some inside them. But too much could make you moody, tired…and contribute to digestive upset. You can get too much candida from eating sugar and carbs, alcohol, some medicines, stress, even just getting older.

Candida is really good at protecting itself in biofilm.

The biofilm that grows around unhealthy bacteria also prevents your body from absorbing nutrients from your food and other supplements you take. So even if you’re eating well and trying to stay healthy with supplements…it won’t do you any good if the nutrients can’t get through your intestine to where they need to go!

That gives bad bacteria even more opportunity to thrive—and could cause you to get tired, achy, rundown, moody, gassy, bloated, and more.

A specific strain of probiotic has been shown to help. Lactobacillus acidophilus has shown the ability to stop the growth of biofilm. It also helps to keep candida in a healthy range.

The Second Key to the Right Probiotic

It ensures your new seeds of healthy bacteria actually GET to your greenhouse, get planted, and get growing. Yet so many brands are missing this step!

The World Health Organization says that in order to provide health benefits, probiotics must be able to endure human digestion, including gastric juices and bile, and be capable of multiplying once they get to the gut.

It only makes sense. When you eat food, your GI tract breaks it down. Why wouldn’t this same system break down your probiotic supplement too?

It does. So you need enough of a probiotic strain where it doesn’t get eaten up before it can go to work… AND it needs protection in getting there.

That protection is called PREBIOTICS. You’ve heard of prebiotics before. You probably know you needed them. But you may not have known why.

In technical terms, a prebiotic is a food ingredient that your body can’t digest, that promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestine.

If your GI tract doesn’t digest it…and if it’s bundled up with beneficial probiotics…it helps make sure the probiotics reach their destination. And then it helps them grow.

Think of prebiotics as the fertilizer in your greenhouse. Supporting your new plants while killing the weeds and pests.

So many probiotic formulas on the market today don’t go this extra step. And it’s a scam, if you ask me. Because if you don’t have a prebiotic, you’re just throwing your money away. Every pill you pop is a waste.

The type of prebiotic in Peak Biome is called FOS. The journal Frontiers in Microbiology says, “The prebiotic effects of FOS . . . have been thoroughly assessed in human trials and many studies suggest that they [work] by increasing bifidobacterial numbers.”

Remember we’ve already discussed how different strains of bifidobacteria help with healthy digestion, cholesterol, blood sugar, and weight loss.

In fact, another leading journal says, “The use of prebiotics with specific probiotics . . . should also be considered as a means of improving health status. Prebiotics can improve probiotic effects on weight loss and maintenance, when they are co-administered.” That is, taken together, like they are in Peak Biome.

You know the word synergy. That something works better as a whole than each of its individual parts. That’s the case here. The pre- and probiotic combo works better together…than either do alone. Not just supporting your digestive health, but your weight, immune system, heart, brain…things you may have had no idea were connected to your gut!

These Two Supplements Are Your New Secret For GI Distress Whether you drank some sketchy water on vacation, battle irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or caught a nasty stomach bug, you’ve likely felt the urgent call of gastrointestinal distress before. Although typically not life-threatening for adults in the developed world, loose, watery stool can be unpleasant and inconvenient. Diarrhea will generally clear up within a few days, but there are plenty of natural remedies to combat the situation and even prevent it in the first place. Besides the tried-and-true rest-and-rehydrate method, two supplements—probiotics and glutamine—can bolster the immune system and offer some much-needed relief. If you’ve got the runs, you might want to run out and grab these supplements.

Probiotics for diarrhea: the microbiome and the immune system.

Popping a probiotic in times of gastrointestinal distress can reduce the severity and duration of diarrheal symptoms. Probiotic supplements contain healthy bacteria to support the microbiome, a collection of trillions of bacteria that live in our gut. The microbiome is intricately connected with digestive health and the immune system. In fact 70 to 80 percent of the immune system lives in the gut alongside the microbiota.

Scientists believe that the immune system and the bacteria that live in the gut "co-evolved" to communicate and support one another. "Good" bacteria helps stimulate and "prime" the immune system to keep it in tiptop fighting shape against "bad" bacteria that can make us sick. In addition, some "good" bacteria produce toxins to fight off "bad" bacteria themselves. So a healthy gut equals a healthy and strong immune system.

Taking antibiotics, stress, diet, infections, and many other factors can change the makeup of the microbiome and create an imbalance between good and bad bacteria, weakening the immune system. In addition, diarrhea can flush good bacteria out with it, making it even harder to fight off whatever may be causing your digestive discomfort.

Probiotic supplements deliver an array of "good" bacteria to help restore balance in the gut and support the immune system. One study even found that probiotics were able to reduce the duration of diarrhea symptoms by one or two days. And when you're tethered to the toilet, one or two days is a huge win. Probiotic-rich foods may be tough to stomach right now, especially dairy-based ones like yogurt, so you may want to stick to a supplement to reap the bacterial benefits.

In addition to helping you recover from a bout of diarrhea, probiotics may be able to prevent one in the first place. One of the most common causes of diarrhea is travel-related exposure to pathogens. Millions of people each year contract diarrhea from unclean water and food or the general stress of travel. By maintaining a healthy gut, you can ensure your immune system is well-supported to fight back while you enjoy vacation. Research has found that pre-emptively taking a probiotic could prevent up to 85 percent of "traveler’s diarrhea" cases.

Glutamine for diarrhea: gut health and hydration.

The thin cell wall barrier between the intestines and the bloodstream is extremely important for overall health. It keeps any pathogens and toxins that we consume or come in contact with from entering the bloodstream while absorbing all the good-for-you nutrients. Glutamine, an amino acid, provides a crucial energy source for these cells to keep them strong and digesting properly. Having adequate glutamine levels in the body is essential for maintaining gut integrity and health.

Glutamine is a nonessential amino acid, which means the body usually produces sufficient amounts, but in times of illness or extreme stress glutamine levels may become depleted. This can weaken the intestinal walls and affect the body's ability to properly and efficiently absorb nutrients during digestion. In addition, having low levels of glutamine may exacerbate or even cause diarrhea. The increased speed of, er, transit through the intestines can make it even more difficult to replenish glutamine and other important nutrients.

Supplementing with glutamine when you have diarrhea can help repair the intestinal walls and improve nutrient absorption. This is especially important for fighting dehydration, a common but potentially dangerous side effect of diarrhea. In fact, glutamine supplementation has been shown to significantly increase water and electrolyte uptake, lessening the severity of diarrhea and staving off dehydration.

I got a little lazy and didn't keep up with my ordering. Two days after I ran out both my shoulders started aching again so badly that I almost cried. Lesson learned! I would also like to mention that mood/ mindset/ alertness and sleeping have greatly improved

You need to give the product at least a month's chance to work. My wife no longer complains about her sore knees. She is on her second bottle. Finally something that works.

I ordered this product because Dr. Oz said on his show that Turmeric Curcumin was a good way to treat depression without all the side effects of normal Rx anti-depressants. He said that it needed to have 95% Curcuminoids and black pepper extract. He also said that you should take 500mg twice a day. This product met all the requirements that he said was needed. He said that if it works for you, you would start to see results somewhere between 2 week and 2 months. Full results wouldn't be seen until after 2 months.

I also noticed that my menstrual cramps were a little less intense and I didn't have to take as much Ibuprofen as I normally have to. I'm sure this is because it's a natural anti-inflammatory. There is a strong spicy flavor & smell to the pills, but I've not had any heartburn with them. I do think it's a little over priced and I wish it was on Amazon Prime (those are the only reasons I didn't give it 5 stars). They sent a promotional offer with my first order that said if I wrote a honest review of their product on Amazon and than emailed them that they would send me a promotional code to receive a free bottle of Turmeric Curcumin with my next order. I thought that was an awesome deal so here I am writing my first Amazon product review. Overall I've been very pleased with this product.

I began using this vitamin because of a trigger finger which i was told would only be helped through surgery. Well after 2 months I can say that my trigger finger no longer exisits..I can not get over how this product worked. I would recommend it to anyone. I use two tablets a day, and did notice a difference when i started to split the bottle with my husband. I beleive this is a product that you need to continue to keep up with the good results..what have you got to lose except perhaps some pain.

Only recently I have started taking tumeric curcumin to see if it would help my arthritis. My arthritis can get a little overbearing and I've been searching for something more nature that would help reduce my pain. I wanted to increase my overall more mobility in my home. I've tried various prescription medications but they didn't always work as well as I'd like them too. Within about 2-3 weeks I found some much needed relief with the Turmeric Curcumin with Black Pepper blend.

Glutamine Powder

L-Glutamine Benefits Leaky Gut & Metabolism First used in powder form by people in the fitness industry who were looking to preserve muscle tissue, L-glutamine is an amino acid that is a building block of protein.

L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the bloodstream and it makes up 30-35 percent of the amino acid nitrogen in your blood.

The most common uses of glutamine powder were to meet the following goals:

  • to lose weight fast,
  • burn fat
  • build muscle

And while that remains the case, science is now showing that L-glutamine benefits are abundant – and that this amino acid is especially helpful in treating leaky gut and improving your overall health.

10 Proven L-Glutamine Benefits

New research is now showing that L-glutamine benefits the body in the following ways:

1. Improves gastrointestinal health because it is a vital nutrient for the intestines to rebuild and repair

2. Helps heal ulcers and leaky gut by acting as a Band-Aid for protection from further damage

3. Is an essential neurotransmitter in the brain and helps with memory, focus and concentration

4. Improves IBS and diarrhea by balancing mucus production, which results in healthy bowel movements

5. Promotes muscle growth and decreases muscle wasting

6. Improves athletic performance and recovery from endurance exercise

7. Improves metabolism and cellular detoxification

8. Curbs cravings for sugar and alcohol

9. Fights cancer

10. Improves diabetes and blood sugar

11. Improves immunity.

12. Improves energy.

13. Helps naturally balance your pH levels.

Bottom line? L-glutamine benefits your health if you have any type of digestive issue, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), an inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulosis, diverticulitis, leaky gut or any of the issues associated with leaky gut (like joint pain, rosacea or any type of autoimmune response). And you need this amino acid in your diet on a regular basis.

L-glutamie is one of my top three most recommended supplements overall for treating leaky gut and/or building a lean body.

A medical study published in 2001 found that L-glutamine benefits the body by regulating IgA immune response. IgA is an antibody that attacks viruses and bad bacteria. (It’s also associated with food sensitivities and allergies.)

The effects of L-glutamine in these studies prove that L-glutamine reduces intestinal inflammation and can help people recover from food sensitivities.

One of L-glutamine’s main roles in the body is to support detoxification by cleansing the body from high levels of ammonia. It acts as a buffer and converts excess ammonia into other amino acids, amino sugars and urea.

Doing approximately one hour of exercise can cause a 40 percent reduction of glutamine in the body. It can also cause suppressed immune function. This has a negative impact on your resistance training and may lead to overtraining syndrome.

Amazingly, around 60% of your skeletal muscle is made up of glutamine – and supplementing this amino acid can aid protein synthesis and help naturally balance your pH levels.

There are two forms of L-glutamine. You can get regular L-glutamine in what’s called its free form, and it should be taken with food ideally for proper absorption by the body. The other type of L-glutamine is called Trans-Alanyl or Alanyl-L-Glutamine — it’s an amino acid attached to another amino acid, which basically means you’re going to digest it much better. Unlike free-form glutamine powder, you can take it on an empty stomach.

If you are taking L-glutamine long-term, it’s a good idea to also supplement with B vitamins. This especially applies to vitamin B12, which controls glutamine buildup in the body.

Whether you’re looking to increase your athletic performance, build muscle or improve a health condition such as leaky gut or diabetes, L-glutamine should be a part of your daily diet. Make it your go-to supplement, and it likely won’t be long until you start to feel the difference.

10 Signs Of Magnesium Deficiency Magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals in the human body and is used in over 300 different physiological processes. Unfortunately, magnesium is also one of the most pervasive deficiencies in our society today. Could the lack of magnesium be influencing your health negatively?

According to American neurosurgeon Norman Shealy, MD, PhD, almost every known disease is associated with a magnesium deficiency. This may sound like a bold statement at first but it actually makes a lot of sense considering the number of roles it plays in the body. This also explains why there are such a diverse set of symptoms that occur when you are not getting enough of it.

There are 10 major signs that clue me in as to whether or not someone has a magnesium deficiency.


1. Poor Cognitive Processing

The brain contains the highest concentration of mitochondria in the male body (females have a higher concentration in their ovaries). Mitochondria are heavily reliant on magnesium for energy production so a deficiency can hamper your brain performance significantly (1). It comes at no surprise that supplemental magnesium has been shown to improve learning and memory (2)!

2. Headaches & Chronic Migraines

It has been found that sufferers of chronic migraines often have lower levels of magnesium in their bodies. Considering how important magnesium is for proper nerve function, this makes a lot of sense. Magnesium also plays the additional key role of regulating neurotransmitter production, which can also influence migraines.

Supplemental magnesium taken on a regular basis has been shown to decrease both the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches (3). Additionally, magnesium has been shown to have the same effect on non-migraine headaches as well.

Much of this has to do with magnesium’s ability to help regulate calcium balance within neuronal cells. Too much calcium can lead to exitotoxic effects where the brain cells are overstimulated and this is a major factor in headaches and migraine formation.


3. Constipation & IBS


4. Fatigue

Magnesium is highly involved with energy production. As mentioned before, the mitochondria in your cells heavily rely on magnesium to produce energy (4). Your mitochondrial function primarily determines your energy levels. Additionally, magnesium supports the adrenal glands which can play a huge part in energy production as well.

And the kicker… because magnesium is involved in so many enzymatic processes in the body, deficiency will make it harder to perform over 300 normal processes. This acts as a chronic stressor on your body and drains your energy!

If you are chronically fatigued, you may have a magnesium deficiency and increasing your magnesium intake can improve your energy levels drastically.


5. Insomnia

Insomnia is one of the big conditions I see a lot of improvement in when beginning magnesium supplementation. This is because magnesium is involved in the production of GABA in the brain. GABA is what is known as an inhibitory neurotransmitter. This just means a chemical that promotes relaxation.

If you don’t have enough magnesium to produce adequate amounts of GABA, your sleep will likely suffer. Although there are other nutrients involved with GABA production, magnesium is a critical factor that will heavily determine your sleep quality.


6. Muscle Spasms & Cramping

Because magnesium is so important for proper nerve transmission, it comes as no surprise that it also plays a vital role in muscle contraction. When magnesium is depleted, muscle contractions can become weak and uncoordinated, leading to involuntary spasms and painful cramps.

This is actually one of the most common early signs of magnesium deficiency. Spasms typically occur in the legs, feet, and sometimes even in places like the eyelids. If you are a woman, you may also experience worsened PMS-related cramping when magnesium stores are low.


7. Chronic Pain & Fibromyalgia

Chronic pain and related conditions like fibromyalgia are heavily related to tension carried in the body. This tension can be purely physical, but can also be aggravated by emotional stress as well. Emotions such as anxiety, anger, and worry all contribute to physical tension. Over time this chronic tension leads to pain.

When magnesium stores are low in the body, the nervous system can become hyper excitable (meaning easily overstimulated) which can increase muscle tension. Magnesium can play a role here by helping to elicit an overall calming effect on the mind and body while soothing and relaxing the muscles.


8. Heart Arrhythmia


9. Numbness and Tingling

If you often feel numbness or tingling sensations in your body, such as in the hands and feet, this is likely due to a change in nerve activity. For example, peripheral neuropathy (a common side effect of diabetes) is characterized by these sensations.

Because of its role in healthy nerve transmission, magnesium deficiency may be at least in part playing a role here. Limited research has been performed on this mechanism specifically, but some studies have shown that magnesium may be able to relieve or prevent numbness and tingling in the extremities.


10. Mood Disorders




2. Epsom Salt Baths

Perhaps one of the most relaxing ways to get more magnesium into your body is by taking an Epsom salt bath. Epsom salts are actually a form of magnesium that can absorb into the body through the skin while you soak. This is part of the reason why Epsom salt baths are so relaxing!

While traditional Epsom salts are made of magnesium sulfate, there are also newer forms of magnesium flakes that are made of magnesium chloride. Both types of salts provide benefits for the body, however magnesium chloride may be able to provide longer lasting benefits. This is because magnesium chloride is both easier to absorb and slower to be excreted from the body.

This means that less magnesium chloride is needed to derive benefits. One of my favorite brands of magnesium flakes is Ancient Minerals and their bath soak can be found here.

3. Supplemental Magnesium

When it comes down to it, our food supply just isn’t what it used to be. Industrialization and poor attention to soil quality has depleted our soil of vital nutrients that used to be passed into the food we ate. Although we are starting to wake up to this fact and make more conscious efforts to create nourished farming conditions, our food is still lacking in the nutrition our bodies need.

This is why I recommend supplemental magnesium to so many of my patients. It is just so critically important to make sure you get enough magnesium in your diet that even I supplement with it every day. My two favorite forms of magnesium are either a high quality transdermal magnesium or powdered form.

Transdermal magnesium comes in a lotion that can be applied to the abdomen or areas of pain for quick absorption that bypasses the digestive tract. This is important especially in cases where the digestive tract is damaged or compromised and cannot absorb magnesium properly (such as leaky gut). My favorite transdermal magnesium can be found here.

BRAIN CALM MAGNESIUM Dr. Jockers $ 39.95 150 grams flavor mixed berry

Dr. Jockers: Top 12 Foods for Magnesium Dr. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D. is an American neurosurgeon and a pioneer in pain medicine. He says, "Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency," and that, "magnesium is the most critical mineral required for electrical stability of every cell in the body. A magnesium deficiency may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient."

Magnesium rich foods should be used in nearly every meal we consume. Our current society is plagued with magnesium deficiency affecting an estimated 80% of individuals in the United States today. The average standard diet consists of 175 mg/day of magnesium down from an average 500 mg/day representative of diets in the 1900’s. (18) Most people are just not consuming enough magnesium rich foods.

When the majority of people don’t meet the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for an essential nutrient, the health consequences are severe and extremely prevalent today. The top 12 best food magnesium rich foods outlined in this article will allow you to replenish your magnesium levels and support your overall vitality and well-being.


Magnesium plays a key role in intra-cellular health. It manages the electrical gradient within cells so that the nervous system is not easily excited. More than 300 enzymes alone require magnesium to perform their biological roles in tissue and organs

The body relies on optimal magnesium absorption for:

Memory function Regulating mood and stress Muscle relaxation and sleep Blood sugar control Healthy bone density Cardiovascular support Detoxification pathways in the liver Normal gut motility

The RDA for magnesium ranges

Females over 14 years of age: 310-360 mg/day

Males over 14 years of age: 400-420 mg/day

Most natural health experts agree that these levels are considerably lower than they should be and yet close to 80% of our population is not even getting this level. As a functional health practitioner, I will put many of my clients on 1-2 grams of magnesium each day…with no fear of an overdose and they respond amazingly well. Many will tell me that the magnesium dramatically improved their sleep quality, mood, memory and overall performance.


Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms

Deficiency leads to a variety of health disturbances and diseases. Do you have any of the following top symptoms of magnesium deficiency?

Poor cognitive thought Headaches and chronic migraines Constipation and related disorders like IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) Fatigue (physical, mental and emotional) Insomnia Muscle spasms Cramping Chronic Pain Heart arrhythmias Numbness and tingling Fibromyalgia Mood disorders such as ADHD, anxiety and depression

A staggering list of widespread diseases is associated with magnesium deficiency. Some of these include Alzheimer’s disease, type-2 diabetes, premenstrual syndrome, hypertension, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and chronic immune disorders. (2) Consuming magnesium rich foods can make a world of difference in these conditions.


Top Magnesium Rich Foods

Consuming magnesium rich foods in your daily diet can help you reduce complications associated with metabolic and inflammatory issues. The biggest things that drain magnesium levels include blood sugar imbalances and chronic stress.

If you notice you are under an increased amount of stress or have enjoyed a higher carbohydrate meal or dessert than look to consume more of these magnesium rich foods and consider adding in a good magnesium supplement which I discuss at the bottom of this article. Look to make at least 10 of these 12 magnesium rich foods staple parts of your daily nutrition plan.

1. Swiss Chard

2. Spinach

3. Grass-Fed Dairy

4. Avocados


5. Pumpkin Seeds


6. Sea Vegetables

Known for the deep chlorophyll rich color, sea vegetables are also one of the top magnesium rich foods. The combination of chlorophyll and magnesium prevent the toxic accumulation of carcinogens in the nervous system while boosting nerve and brain function. Sea vegetables up-regulate antioxidant pathways to combat oxidative stress and prevent the depletion of magnesium levels.

Try incorporating seaweeds like dulse, nori and kelp into your diet to boost your magnesium concentration and support immune defenses. Kelp is one of the top magnesium rich foods with 121 mg of magnesium in 100 grams of kelp. Sprinkle Bragg’s Organic Sea Kelp Delight Seasoning or Herbamare to enrich the flavor and nutrient profile of any dish. You can also enjoy Sea Snax which are a very tasty way to enjoy sea vegetables.


7. Pink Salts

Compared to table salt which is toxic and can inhibit the proper absorption of magnesium into the body, pink salts provide vital trace minerals for health. Examples are Himalayan pink salt and Redmond’s Real Salt mined from volcanic sea deposits. The trace minerals they contain are reflected in their natural pink hues.

The purity of pink salts makes them a great dietary source of magnesium for improving electrolyte balance. They also contains nutrients like iodine, manganese, potassium and zinc. Consider adding a pinch of pink salt into your water following an intense workout or extended period of sweating to stabilize your electrolyte imbalance and prevent magnesium deficiency. Doing so will reduce symptoms of dehydration and prevent muscle spasms and fatigue.


8. Nuts

Almonds, brazil nuts, pecans and macadamia nuts contain magnesium to help preserve bone density, support cardiovascular health and regulate blood sugar levels. The magnesium in nuts increases testosterone levels aiding in strength, muscle recovery and protein synthesis for metabolism. Nuts are an excellent snack for any athlete to offset the magnesium deficits that occur from increased sweat and urination.

Consuming almonds in one study was associated with a reduction in blood sugar levels following a meal by 40 to 50% (9). Nut consumption has been found to reduce the occurrence of metabolic syndrome in 7% of patients following only one serving of nuts weekly (10). Brazil nuts are the highest source of magnesium and the trace mineral selenium.


9. Dark Chocolate

You might be surprised to know that unsweetened dark cocoa powder is one of the highest sources of magnesium rich foods. A single ounce of dark chocolate provides 95 mg or about 24% of the recommended daily value of magnesium (13). Just be sure to consume non-processed chocolate that is greater than 70% cacao for its full health benefits. The highest concentrations are in the raw cacao form but minimally processed dark chocolate is also good.

A greater need for magnesium can manifest as cravings for chocolate during a woman’s menstrual cycle. Seen again, greater compulsion to eat chocolate occurs when individuals are overwhelmed by emotional stress and seek a feel good trigger. The magnesium in chocolate provides the stimulus the brain was lacking to improve a person’s mood by balancing hormone levels and brain function.


10. Wild-caught Fish

Wild-caught fish like Wild Alaskan salmon, sardines and halibut offer about 80mg of magnesium in a 2.5 ounce serving which makes them one of the best magnesium rich foods. This food source has a deep nutrient profile because it is also a fantastic source of healthy fats, vitamin D and trace minerals.

Consuming wild-caught fish low in toxicity improves neurological and cardiovascular function as well as protects against bone degeneration. With the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease expected to reach 104 million by the year 2050, it is critical not to overlook the superfood powers of wild-caught, omega 3 rich fish (19). Weekly consumption can reduce the occurrence of cognitive decline and alleviate symptoms of dementia.

11. Sprouts

Sprouts offer anti-carcinogenic properties and are packed with magnesium amongst a wide array of vitamins like A, B, C and micronutrients. Magnesium in sprouts provides health benefits for the skin, hair and slows the aging process

Choosing organic broccoli, cauliflower and kale sprouts is the best way to ensure you are receiving the greatest concentration of nutrients. Researchers have found that eating 5 servings of sprouts weekly provides the maximum impact to support a healthy gut, reduce inflammation,and detoxify the body of pollutants (21). Toss sprouts over salads, stir fry and add to wraps and slaw.


12. Coffee

Given our fast paced lifestyles, it is no surprise that coffee provides the number one source of antioxidants for Americans today. Drinking coffee in excess can deplete the body of its magnesium stores but when consumed in normal concentrations, coffee is one of the great magnesium rich foods. Limit your coffee intake to about 2 cups and stir in a healthy fat like coconut oil or grass-fed butter to prevent an adrenaline response.

The magnesium in coffee is associated with improved metabolic rate and a lower risk of insulin resistance. Researchers have found that coffee intake reduces the risk for type-2 diabetes in both men and women (22). Along with the health benefiting polyphenols also active in coffee, magnesium intake has been directly shown to lower fasting insulin levels. Drink organic coffee to avoid chemical residue from fertilizers and pesticides.

Supplemental Magnesium

I recommend supplemental magnesium for the majority of my patients. Most people notice immediate results with better stress adaptation, energy, memory, improved bowel tone, mood, productivity and sleep quality. The key is to get the right form of magnesium.

Magnesium L-threonate has been shown in the latest research to be the most effective form of magnesium for energy, sleep, brain function and stress adaptation. This is because the L-threonate form is able to cross the blood brain barrier and absorb into the neuron cells of the brain - Dr. Mercola

Ginger

1/4 tsp. in water better than Ibuprofen. Lasts about 4 hours.

Now Foods Ginger 5% Standard Extract, 250mg, Veg-capsules, 90-Count $6.79 ($0.08 / Count) 5 stars.

250 milligrams is equal to 0.0525 teaspoons of dry cooking ingredients, such as salt, sugar and spice. One gram, or 1,000 milligrams, is roughly equal to 0.21 teaspoons. 250 milligrams is a quarter of 1,000 milligrams, so, dividing 0.21 by four yields 0.0525.

Therefore, 8 capsules = 1/4 tsp.

Ginger Is Great for Bad Breath Ginger has a long history of use in treatments for arthritis, muscular aches, sprains, sore throat, indigestion, vomiting, cramps, constipation, hypertension, dementia, fever and parasites

A compound in ginger that enables gastrointestinal transport (the time it takes food to leave your stomach and travel through your intestines) is the same one that enables an enzyme in saliva to break down unpleasant odors

Besides fighting inflammation and oxidation, 6-gingerol effects several biological processes, including apoptosis (programmed cell death), cell cycle regulation, cytotoxic activity and the formation of new blood vessels

In one study, ginger delayed the onset of nausea about twice as long as a medication developed for that purpose, and it’s effective whether the nausea stems from motion sickness, morning sickness due to pregnancy or chemotherapy

Organic powdered ginger is an excellent alternative to using whole ginger root

Betaine HCL anhydrous

Betaine is a naturally occurring amino acid compound also known as trimethylglycine, or TMG

The health benefits of betaine are numerous including

Digestive Aid
Heart Health
Liver Function Support and Detoxification
Muscle Mass Improvement
Fat Loss

Here are 12 of the best food sources of betaine:

Wheat Bran — 1/4 cup uncooked (about 15 grams): 200 mg
Quinoa — About 1 cup cooked or 1/4 cup uncooked: 178 mg
Beets — 1 cup raw: 175 mg
Spinach — 1 cup cooked: 160 mg
Amaranth Grain — About 1 cup cooked or 1/2 cup uncooked : 130 mg

Betaine anhydrous is LIKELY SAFE for most children and adults when taken by mouth appropriately. Betaine anhydrous can cause some minor side effects. These include nausea, stomach upset, and diarrhea, as well as body odor.

Betaine hydrochloride [HCI] is an acidic form of betaine, a vitamin-like substance found in grains and other foods. Betaine hydrochloride is recommended by some doctors as a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid for people who have a deficiency of stomach acid production (hypochlorhydria).

What is Betaine HCL good for?
Betaine is a source of hydrochloric acid, or stomach acid. Betaine HCl supplements are typically used to increase levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. This formula also contains pepsin, a digestive enzyme that assists with the digestion of protein.

Symptoms of low stomach acid:

cramping.
heartburn.
nausea.
acid reflux.
constipation.
diarrhea.
infection.
undigested food in stools.

Digestive Enzyme
Serving Size: 1 Capsule
Servings Per Container: 120

Question: What's the difference between this and a digestive enzyme product?
Answer: This adjusts the pH of your stomach, which allows the enzymes present in your stomach to work more effectively. HCl is a simple acid. An enzyme is a protein molecule that breaks down other molecules. The stomach of a healthy person will make sufficient quantities of both HCl and enzymes. If a person's stomach is not functioning optimally, it might not make sufficient HCl, or it might not make sufficient digestive enzymes, or it might not be able to make enough of either. I do not know how to test precisely for these scenarios. I assume if I take HCl and feel better, I must have needed it. (In the same manner, I assume that if I take digestive enzymes and feel better, I needed them. At various times, I have found relief from digestive distress by taking only HCl, by taking only digestive enzymes and by taking both simultaneously.) I cannot give advice. I am only reporting my own experience.

Question: DOES THIS PRODUCT CONTIAN PORK
Answer: Pepsin is made from the rennet lining a pig's stomach, so yes, this product does contain porcine products.

"LivOn's Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C - is almost as good as a C drip" [New York Times.

Amazon Reviews [4.5/5 stars]:

Question: How can I justify the extra cost for this Vitamin C? Can't I just take more of regular Vitamin C?
Answer: This vitamin C has %90 absorption rate vs usual anywhere around%3. So, calculate how many you should take to substitute for this one. Also, like with vitamin D it's important to have it manufactured with fat, ant this is an only brand I know which does it for vitaminC. Because of its price I take it mostly in winter

Question: Store in the refrigerator? Should this be stored or left at room temperature?
Answer: Instructions on box state "store in cool, dry place. Do not freeze or place in direct sunlight". Refrigeration is not required.

-My doctor suggested Livon's Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C and GSH. My understanding is that the water soluble vitamins are encapsulated in fat soluble phospholipids so the vitamins get delivered to the liver instead of being lost in digestion. What I do know is that I have a lot more energy when I take these. I mix them with some grape juice each morning about 15 minutes before eating breakfast. The first week, I had to nap in the afternoons - I was worn out from working harder each morning as I have a chronic illness, Lyme disease. I've been taking them for two weeks now, and find my energy level stays high for about 6 or 7 hours after taking these. They are not inexpensive, but considering that I am more able to work consistently with them, the investment is worth it.

-For more information on Lypo-C I recommend Dr Levy's book 'Curing the Incurable.'
It seems to be really working for me. I have severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and am housebound and almost entirely bedbound. A bit less bedbound than I was though I'm happy to say.
If you ''t have very positive results, you may need to take a much higher dose or continue the treatment longer (I take 4 packets daily and 24 g of ascorbic acid orally daily too, and am still not near my saturation point...just my budget point!) It's also best as part of an entire orthomolecular/nutritional program.

-The liposomally encapsulated antioxidant vitamin C is more significant than penicillin. There is but one disease: Oxidative Stress. Antioxidants eliminate Oxidative Stress. There is no better or more efficient means to deliver significant amounts of the antioxidant C, our greatest antioxidant, than through the oral ingestion of liposomal C. I'm not associated with the LivOn folks or anyone and I'm not selling anything but you need to read Dr. Thomas Levy's works and then get to my liposomalc.info web site to learn how to make your own liposomal C. I gave this One Star because it is outrageously expensive, not because it isn't the best commercially available antioxidant product on the market. Dr. Linus Pauling got two Nobel Prizes telling you how great vitamin C is for you and, back then, no one had discovered liposomal encapsulation yet. With the curative properties encapsulation provides I believe if Dr. Pauling were alive today he'd be campaigning for a Nobel Prize for whomever discovered how to get this past the stomach and on to the cellular level without a needle. Dr. Levy tells us vitamin C will never never never let us down if we do enough of it. My experience is that Dr. Levy is right.

- I have [been] sick and suffering from fatigue and many other symptoms from metal toxins (mercury, cadium, lead, silver from old dental work) since Mid-July. Regular doctors/hospitals were no help. Then I learned about root canal and mercury/metal fillings that causes all the symptoms and sickness. Since then, I had my hair/blood test, seeing Function Doctor and Holistic/Biological dentist. Felt really sick after last silver filling removal for about 1 week.. I found this from a article and researched. Got it from AmazonSmile, and right away, I felt better! It's been about 2 weeks now and take this daily. Feel so much better! Wish someone or a doctor would have told me about this sooner vs suffering. Now I know and inform everyone. Wish the cost was lower, but have no choice if I want feel and stay healthy.

-I take a swig of cold water from the tap. Then I tear open the packet and squeeze it directly into my mouth and the whole thing goes down with very little taste or effort.

-My mom suffers from a major disorder that makes her feel tired all the time. So when my sister told her about this she has been in love. This is amazing and I like it

-I got tired of getting sick. I take 1 or 2 of these a day on an empty stomach, and I haven't been sick in 2 years. I usually get sick once the seasons change, so I was averaging 4 sicknesses a year, with the random outlier from time to time. Inly thing which works against viruses.

Vegan, Non GMO. Formula contains NO: Gluten, Dairy, Sugar, or Hexane. Zone/Paleo Diet Friendly

Most ordinary forms of oral Vitamin C, tablets, capsules, powders, liquids and even Vitamin C from your diet, are not processed and absorbed efficiently by your body. As a result, much of this Vitamin C is never transferred into your bloodstream and even less of it makes it into your cells. When you take 1,000 milligrams or more of regular oral Vitamin C, more than half of it is passed as waste by your body.

Until now... Unlike pills and powders, which are not absorbed efficiently, Lypo Spheric products use liposomes made from Essential Phospholipids to maximize absorption.

Phospholipids are primary building blocks of the cellular membrane: the thin, protective wall around each cell in your body. The phospholipid wall functions as a skin for each cell, keeping things in or out. While your body can make some phospholipid compounds on its own, others must be supplied by your diet. These are called essential phospholipids.

Lypo Spheric Vitamin C gives you 1,000 milligrams of Vitamin C AND 1,000 milligrams of Essential Phospholipids in each packet, including Phosphatidylcholine, an important phospholipid required for maintaining a healthy cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous system.

For best results, snip or tear the notched end off the packet, squeeze into 1-2 oz of your favorite cool beverage and drink in one gulp on an empty stomach. The product will not dissolve in liquid. We do not recommend mixing the product with a hot beverage or with any high-speed blenders or food processors.

does it contain soy
Answer: NO, NO WAY! It's wonderful supplement equivalent to the $149 Vit C injections that your MD may want to give you.

I have used this product for two years with great results. Just buy it and use it. As with all supplements it takes time to see the effect. 60 to 90 days for me to feel the difference

Why in the world does the product contain alcohol?
Answer: As far as i read about this alcohol was the most natural or close to natural preservative they found.

I like to review products after they have proven the test of time. That being said, Myself, and 3 of my family members, have been using Lypo-Spheric Vita C for several months now. We all love it. It has helped my family immensely that had been experiencing significant health problems. Their health problems range from: Brain Cancer (chordoma brain tumor), COPD, CIPD, Dystonia, and Neuropathy.

I placed a second order of the vitamin c since the product worked. The second order was at best inactive., possibly harmful. It tasted bad, looked bad and was damaged in some way. I am returning it. I then ordered directly from the manufacturer, got the same price, free delivery, a guarantee, a product brochure, AND the vitamin C was identical in appearance and taste to my original amazon purchase. The amazon reseller must be buying in bulk, storing incorrectly see below

This is a quite a surprise. I have always read about lypospheric Vitamin C but finally decided to give it a try. After a few days of use, I noticed that my "aches and pains" in the back and legs disappeared. In addition, I took two packets a day when one of my family members brought a "cold" and I never caught cold despite other members getting the infection. Only down sides are taste, expensive price, and alcohol

Adaptogen Research 5* $36.00 240 mg Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid, which many may simply know as lipoic acid, provides a stabilized and isolated RLA (R-lipoic acid isomer) thanks to technological advancements. Since SLA (S-lipoic acid isomer) can interfere with RLA’s efficacy, supplementing with pure RLA provides a significant advantage for intensive lipoic acid supplementation. Once separated from SLA, RLA is extremely unstable. Binding RLA to potassium, as found in this unique product, solves this problem. Unlike other R-Lipoic products, Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid is a non-hydroscopic, non-polymeric potassium salt form of RLA. Made with non-GMO ingredients.

Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid Plus $ biotin 4mg, Taurine 500mg, RLA 100mg. R-Lipoic Acid is a highly unstable compound that easily polymerizes into a sticky rubber or glue-like substance if it is not prepared, stored and processed correctly. This will adversely affect bioavailability. Stable RLA is a non-hygroscopic, non-polymeric potassium salt form of RLA. The capsules are heat stable, characterized by fast dissolution rates, high solubility and absorption. They are also free of residual solvents and moisture. There are wide variations in the R/S ratios and total polymer contents of raw material and finished products now on the market. Few supplement companies have experience with RLA and are unaware of the myriad of problems associated with its encapsulation and stability. Adaptogen Research Stabilized RLipoic Acid Plus is sourced from the only stable and highly bioavailable form of R-Lipoic Acid available on the market.

Vitamin B12

Order site $19 or less for 2 bottles or more

Mercola: 4 Signs You Are Not Getting Enough B-12 Vitamin B12 is a B vitamin found in most animal-based products

Vitamin B12 helps in the production of hemoglobin, improvement of nerve strength and regulation of homocysteine levels

About 92 percent of the American population have some type of vitamin deficiency and unknowingly suffer the consequences.1 One of these is vitamin B12 deficiency, which affects more than 20 percent of the Americans over the age of 50.2 In developing countries, a higher number of patients with this deficiency has been recorded, namely in India, Mexico and some parts of Africa

Vitamin B12 Sources: Where Can You Get It?

Sardines

Grass fed beef

Pasture-raised organic eggs

Mussels

Raw organic grass fed milk

Organic free-range chicken

Wild Alaskan salmon

Herring

Some of the options for vegans and vegetarians include B12 capsules, sprays and B12 shots. However, you should pay attention to the type of B12 used in these products to make sure that you're getting the form your body needs. Two types of vitamin B12 available in the market are

Cyanocobalamin. This is the most popular type of vitamin B12 available because it’s cheaper and easier to produce. Cyanocobalamin is normally synthesized in laboratories and does not naturally occur in the human body. Once it is introduced to your system, the body then converts it into methylcobalamin.

Methylcobalamin. This type is said to be the active form of vitamin B12 and is able to remain in the body longer. I recommend looking for B12 supplements that use this type to make sure that your body absorbs the vitamin up front. It’s the natural form of this vitamin, so the body isn’t required to convert it to another form. It’s more easily utilized and is more effective that cyanocobalamin.

For older age groups, vitamin B12 is often caused by the decreased ability of the digestive system to absorb nutrients. This means that even if you optimize your diet to contain high amounts of B12, most of it only passes the digestive system unabsorbed. The first thing that becomes noticeable once you have inadequate levels is the changes in brain function

Other vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms include the following:

Megaloblastic anemia. This is a type of anemia caused by the body cells’ inability to synthesize DNA during red blood cell production. It is often characterized by abnormally sized red blood cells and a lower cell count. Some of the telltale symptoms of megaloblastic anemia include shortness of breath, muscle weakness, nausea and paleness.

Jaundice. This is often characterized by the abnormal yellowing of the eyes and skin, which is caused by the high amounts of the bilirubin pigment being released from the destruction of the fragile red blood cells brought on by low vitamin B12 levels

Memory loss or cognitive difficulties. Studies show that the presence of low to normal levels of B12 in the body can lead to white matter damage in the brain, which then causes major impairment in cognitive function.

Fatigue. B12-deficient patients feel overwhelming fatigue and tiredness. Some patients even note that they are not able to do menial tasks that they do daily. This may be accompanied by numbness or tingling of the extremities as well.

The Top Things to Look for When Choosing a Vitamin B12 Supplement

B-12 Doctor's Best Fully Active B12 1500 Mcg Vegetarian Capsules, 60 Count 4.5s $4.27 ($0.07 / Count) Subscribed

Quick Melt Fully Active B12 and Best Fully Active B12 provide vitamin B12 (cobalamin) in its active coenzyme or 'vitamer' form, called methylcobalamin or methyl-cobalamin (MC). The high potency of these two MC products from Doctor’s Best assures their absorption when taken by mouth; the Quick Melt delivery system helps ensure rapid MC entry into the circulation.

Dr. Davis recommends the Methylcobalamin form. Start with 50 mcg/day. Build up to 500-1000.

B-12 IS VITAL FOR OVERALL HEALTH
B vitamins help your body convert food into fuel and makes your skin, hair, eyes, liver and nervous system healthy. Up to 39% of adults are not getting the B-12 they need in their diets. Symptoms of B-12 deficiency include

Fatigue
Muscle aches
Joint pain
Dizziness
Mood changes
Digestive problems.

Cleanest Sublingual B12 Available The majority of B-12 Supplements are made with cyanocobalamin, which is chemically synthesized in laboratories that is more difficult to break down and stresses your liver.

So far very pleased with this new B-12 vitamin. I'd been looking for a tablet that didn't have junk or sweeteners involved and I already take the Pure Vitamin Club Multivitamin which I like very much. I do seem to have a bit more energy after I take one. Seems to kick in for me rather rapidly. I think it's great that this company is out there trying to provide a pure product as I am very concerned about all the junk companies place in products without any regard for the consumer.

Prostate Rip-Off Leaves Millions of Men in Misery Countless men are suffering with urinary frequency and urgency, even feeling helpless in the bedroom, because of FAILED prostate supplements. Learn how a new breakthrough delivers 15 times more powerful prostate and urinary relief

Why is an herbal remedy like saw palmetto considered a "drug" in Europe?

If you're struggling with prostate and urination problems, chances are you've heard of saw palmetto and may even have tried it. And like many men, you may think all saw palmetto is alike. WRONG!

Why such a disparity in saw palmetto quality? Let me explain...

Although native to the U.S., saw palmetto first became THE treatment for prostate problems in Europe, where alternative medicine and herbal remedies are big sellers.

What you may not know is that in Europe, herbs like saw palmetto must be registered as "medicinal products"—following a criteria that'svery close to prescription drug pre-approval in the U.S.

A dossier for saw palmetto sold in Europe contains such information as manufacturing and quality controls...the identity of the herb and its constituents...and data on toxicology, safety and effectiveness proven in clinical trials.

By comparison, in the U.S., saw palmetto can be sold based on its chemistry alone—with no pre-approval or clinical studies required to show it works.

This has led to a rash of...

Prostate rip-offs that leave millions of U.S. men in misery
I've uncovered some information about saw palmetto sold in the U.S. that has me steaming mad—and should make your blood boil, too.

Here are some prime examples of common rip-offs:

Selling saw palmetto berry powder

Selling foreign-grown saw palmetto

Selling diluted saw palmetto

Selling saw palmetto harvested out of season

Selling saw palmetto extracted with high heat and chemical solvents

Why is it superior, the only saw palmetto extract I recommend and the only one I take? Here are seven reasons...

15 times more powerful prostate and urinary relief

A full, clinically proven dosage of 320 mg in each softgel

Organic, U.S. grown saw palmetto

Harvested for maximum potency

Exceeds the requirements for U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP)

Iron

Ferrous Fumate is best absorbed [W.Davis]

How Excess Iron Raises Your Risk for Alzheimer’s Your body has limited capacity to excrete iron, which means it can build up in your tissues and organs. This is problematic, as iron is a potent oxidizer, capable of damaging tissues, including your brain

Buildup of iron in your brain causes a rusting effect, and appears to play an important role in the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers have also found elevated cerebrospinal fluid iron levels are strongly correlated with the presence of the Alzheimer’s risk allele, APOE-e4, and patients with higher iron levels deteriorate earlier and faster than those with low iron

Iron overload is easily diagnosed by measuring your serum ferritin. A healthy, ideal level is between 40 and 60 ng/ml

Adult men and non-menstruating women with high iron levels would benefit by donating blood two to three times per year to normalize their levels and avoid “rusting” in the brain

3 Supplements That Actually Work—And 3 That Are Just Wasting Your Money? Health in a bottle has become a booming business—Americans shell out around $35 billion on dietary supplements each year, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). But is it money well spent?

The trick is knowing which supplements can actually help you stay healthy—and which are likely doing nothing at all. Here’s your quick cheat sheet.

Supplement to take: Vitamin D

Vitamin D—known as the sunshine vitamin, since you can get it from its rays—aids your body in absorbing calcium. It also helps reduce inflammation, improve mood, and boost immune function.

vitamin D is incredibly difficult to get from food sources. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to a number of serious health issues, including depression, dementia, and heart disease.

Supplement to take: Magnesium

Magnesium is very important for a range of functions, from proper digestion to blood sugar control.

But most American diets provide less than the NIH’s recommended amount of 400 to 420 milligrams (mg).

One reason? Poor soil health compared to past centuries of agriculture, as one recent study in The Crop Journal noted. That’s because vegetables are drawing in less magnesium from the soil now, so we’d have to eat more of them to get the same amount of the mineral than before.

So even though you may be eating foods that should contain lots of magnesium—think leafy green vegetables, beans, nuts, brown rice, and whole wheat—you may not be getting as much of it as you may think, says Elliot.

Supplement to take: Probiotics

Probiotics—“good” bacteria that live in your gut—can improve digestion, which makes it easier for your body to absorb vitamins and minerals in your diet, says food scientist Joy Dubost, Ph.D., R.D.

“Research is still emerging on the benefits of probiotics,” she says. “But we do know that they can enhance immune function.”

Supplement to skip: Vitamin C

Popular belief dictates that you reach for vitamin C tablets—or foods rich in the vitamin, like oranges—to ward off a cold.

But research hasn’t actually proven it can prevent colds, though other studies have shown it can reduce the duration of cold symptoms, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Still, it’s easy to get recommended amounts without popping it in pill form.

According to the NIH, adult males need just 90 mg daily—you get three times that amount in just one cup of chopped, raw yellow pepper.

Supplement to skip: B-Complex Vitamins

Given the breadth of benefits of B-complex vitamins—stronger metabolism, healthy skin, better conversion of food into fuel for energy—it seems logical that popping a supplement with all 8 of them would be the way to go.

How much you need of each B-complex vitamin—including B-12, folate, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, niacin, and biotin—varies. For example, you need 1.3 mg of vitamin B6, and 2.4 mg of vitamin B12 per day.

But adding them to you supplement could be a waste, says Roussell.

That’s because B-vitamins are ubiquitous in fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains, he points out. A can of tuna will get you 0.87 mg of B6 and 2.5 mg of B12, for example.

“They are everywhere, and there are no documented benefits of taking additional B-vitamins in healthy individuals,” Roussell says.

Plus, the marketing claims about B-complex vitamins giving you a boost through energy drinks is just hype, he says. It’s likely the caffeine and sugar providing the energy uptick instead.

In fact, taking too much certain B vitamins like niacin can be harmful. A recent case study in BMJ Case Reports highlighted a healthy, 50-year-old construction worker who was diagnosed with a severe case of acute hepatitis.

Doctors believe it was caused by a B-vitamin overdose brought on by overconsumption of energy drinks.

So, getting excess means no additional benefits—you’d just be peeing it out, Elliott says. But that doesn’t mean it’s not harmful. Like the construction worker patient, your liver could get taxed by trying to clear those excess vitamins.

Supplement to skip: calcium

Calcium is a vital mineral for bone strength and nervous system function. But should the supplement be in your shopping cart?

Only if you’re avoiding calcium-rich foods for some reason—say, if you’re vegan or lactose intolerant—or have a bone condition like osteoporosis or osteopenia, says Elliott.

“Calcium is important,” she says. “But it’s very easy to get through food.”

In addition to dairy products like milk and yogurt, you can get calcium in spinach, kale, bok choy, sardines, broccoli, almonds, chia seeds and salmon.

Another reason to aim for food-based sources over supplements is that studies on calcium supplementation been mixed.

In fact, research from the NIH suggests that men may have increased risk of heart attack, stroke or other cardiovascular diseases from calcium supplements. But that correlation needs further study, the researchers noted.

How To Improve Your Vision to 20/20 in 7 Days With This Simple Trick Did you know that deteriorating vision has NOTHING to do with computer use, close reading, genetics, or even the aging process?

We are quickly approaching the day when people who suffer from the most common causes of vision loss and blindness, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, corneal visual impairment, diabetic retinopathy, and even near and far-sightedness can kiss goodbye to their glasses or contact lenses and even forget about considering Lasik operations...

Video: Macular degeneration... uncover the REAL CAUSE of vision loss, hidden from you your entire life by a corrupt and dishonest optometry industry whose entire business model relies on your eyes continually getting worse…

But instead, is all down to TWO LITTLE-KNOWN NUTRIENTS produced by your own body, which are being ruthlessly ‘killed off’ in every visually impaired person on Earth.

And by using a simple 2 minute ‘trick’ known only to THIS small Aboriginal Army unit stationed deep in the Australian outback, you can treat this process quickly and easily….

And best of all, she was able to do it 100% naturally, simply and easily, using inexpensive ingredients picked up at our local grocery store!

I promise you – you can dramatically improve your eyesight with nothing more than this delicious green smoothie.

a friend told me about this weird all-natural protocol he was trying.

Today, I have 20/20 vision, and for the first time in 40 years, I '’t need glasses or contact lenses.

I have been absolutely amazed at the speed that this has worked, and wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it… with my own eyes!

He had a real dislike of the optometry industry.

And it was because, in his own words, the whole industry was “a giant and deliberate fraud”, which makes billions every year not by helping to improve your vision, but by actively making it WORSE!

the big problem here is that from this moment on, your vision is destined to only get WORSE, not better – because your eyes become trapped in a vicious cycle of dependency that you can never escape from.

your eyes will only ever get weaker and less effective by wearing corrective lenses, like glasses or contacts.

What happens when you break your leg and use crutches? The muscles in your legs waste away, because you’re not using them, right?

Well, the eyes are exactly the same.

Corrective lenses are not a solution. They’re just a crutch.

All they do is treat the symptoms.

They NEVER attempt to get to the root cause of the problem in order to actually make your eyesight better – because that would destroy their business model!

more and more research shows that eye exercises not only fail to improve vision, but actually make it worse, because they increase eye strain – one of the main things you need to avoid!

I discovered to my amazement that the eyesight of Aboriginal people in outback Australia is up to FOUR TIMES better than ours.

According to Professor Hugh Taylor from the University of Melbourne's Indigenous Eye Health unit, who pioneered studies into ‘super sight’, “the vision of the Aboriginal people is better than anybody else in the world".[4]

“Our super sight is all down to the land we live on”, he continued, mysteriously.

“This recipe has been in my family for generations”, he said. “Eat these foods and your wife will recover.”

The first one was something called Warigal spinach.

But according to countless studies, any type of spinach, including the Warigal variety that Aborigines are brought up on, contains two very special nutrients that have been clinically proven to produce dramatic and long-lasting improvements in eye health, reduce the risk of vision loss, and dramatically improve eyesight altogether.

Those two nutrients are called lutein and zeaxanthin, and they can be found in spinach, kale, eggs, and a variety of other foods.

There were trials upon trials, including The Age Related Eye Disease Study, or AREDS, the gold standard study into vision loss carried out by the National Eye Institute, which proved beyond any doubt that lutein and zeaxanthin are absolutely ESSENTIAL to vision. [5]

In fact, they’re the two most important nutrients to eat because they’re EXACTLY what our eyes need to ward off vision problems like macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and even near and far-sightedness. [6]

The AREDS study found that people diagnozed with early AMD who ate these two nutrients were 25-30% less likely to go on to develop advanced AMD, while they also reduced their risk of developing central vision loss by 19%. [7]

Another study of the elderly Finish population published in the British Journal of Nutrition reported that “high plasma concentrations of lutein and zeaxanthin reduced the risk of age-related cataracts by a massive 41%.” [8], [9]

And that’s great news, considering age-related cataracts are one of the leading causes of visual impairment in the United States, with the number of Americans likely to be effected set to increase to an estimated 30 million by 2020. [10]

So how do these nutrients work?

Breakthrough studies into vision loss, including those carried out at the University of Kentucky, and the University of Florida, have finally uncovered the real cause of vision loss – and it’s not what you think. [11]

Apparently, from the day you are born, the retina and macula in your eyes are under constant attack from harmful blue and ultraviolet light. This creates something called “Oxidative Stress”, which then generates harmful “free radicals” – which are basically the bad guys that destroy the DNA in your cells.

Within the macula is the macular pigment, whose job is to filter out, or kill off, these free radicals – preventing any damage to the macula itself, the retina, lens, cornea and optic nerve.

And the macular pigment is made up primarily of two crucial antioxidants.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin!

That’s right, these good guys have always been there, IN YOUR EYES, and they have one purpose in life – to get rid of the toxic free radicals that build up in your eyes, attack your DNA cells and destroy your vision.

The only way to get either of them is through food.

The problem is, according to the AREDS study, “most Americans only get 10% of the lutein and zeaxanthin they need.” [12]

Which means you '’t have anywhere near enough of these nutrients in your macula to maintain your eyesight… and because the Standard American Diet is so short in these two eyesight protectors, your levels have actually been dwindling since childhood.

You see, this is the REAL CAUSE of your vision loss.

It’s not close reading or computer use.

It’s not genetics.

And it’s not the aging process.

It’s free radical damage. [13], [14], [15]

that’s not even half the story – and not enough on its own to win the war against free radical damage and give you the crystal clear vision of your childhood.

You see, second on Bunji’s list of vision restorers was shellfish, which the Aborigines eat in abundance.

And as I discovered, this food contained something equally as beneficial to eye health – a primary structural component of the retina called DHA, which has been proven to improve eyesight and dramatically reduce the risk of macular degeneration. [16], [17], [18], [19], [20], [21]

According to a recent study that took place at the Centre for Eye Research at the University of Melbourne in Australia, high dietary intake of this nutrient was associated with a massive 38% reduction in the risk of AMD. [22]

And there was more.

The recipe also included kangaroo meat, a staple in the Aboriginal diet for centuries.

And after researching this, I discovered a 7 year clinical study which revealed that out of 5,400 patients, those who received a combination of three specific vitamins found in kangaroo meat, had an average 34% lower risk of contracting any form of AMD than those who received the placebo. [23]

And there was more.

Bunji’s recipe included a range of Aboriginal fruits, vegetables, herbs, berries, seeds and other completely natural ingredients, including the Quan'g fruit, Kakadu plums, Bush tomatoes and Pigweed seeds…

After researching the entire list, I discovered that together, the recipe contained EIGHT ESSENTIAL ANTIOXIDANTS clinically proven to improve eyesight, and protect against devastating eye diseases like macular degeneration, cataracts, and even near and far sightedness.

Here were completely natural ingredients that had been scientifically proven to help people suffering from vision loss, yet not a single optometrist had ever told my wife anything about them.

I reasoned that if I could take Bunji’s original recipe, break it down, and then uncover some “local” foods which contained the same antioxidants, in the exact same amounts, while applying modern science and technology to the new formulation, I would be able to create a recipe even more powerful than Bunji’s

eventually, David and I developed a series of delicious all-American smoothie recipes containing the exact same nutrients and vitamins found in Bunji’s ancient Aboriginal recipe, which when consumed on their own, would have little effect on eyesight, but when combined, and drunk on a daily basis, produced remarkable results.

In fact, thanks to David Lancaster’s knowledge, the final recipes we created were up to 3 TIMES MORE POWERFUL than those consumed by Bunji and his family.

And the best part was, because these unique formulations were completely natural, instead of a drug, we didn’t have to submit our “treatment” to the FDA, and potentially wait years for approval.

After 5 days of following the recipes, there was little change.

But David had warned us that changes might not be noticeable right away – and that it would take time to break down the build-up of toxic free radicals that had taken root like a virus in Lindsay’s eyes.

But then on day 9, something remarkable happened.

From that moment on, the improvement in her vision was beyond anything I could have ever imagined.

Each morning, her vision was becoming clearer, sharper and less ‘cloudy’.

She stopped bumping into things.

The black spots and “floaters” in her vision began to disappear.

I decided to post adverts online and in local newspapers, asking for volunteers who might be willing to put our vision protocol to the test.

After just 4 days, we had 127 people, suffering from varying degrees of vision loss, desperate to take part in the trial.

The results were even more spectacular than we’d even dreamed.

Without exception, and within a maximum of 32 days, all 127 volunteers reported dramatic improvements in their vision.

93% of participants achieved 20/20 vision.

Remember, due to the toxic environment we now live in, which includes everything from the food we eat, to the water we drink, to the air we breathe, our eyes are being relentlessly attacked by damaging and poisonous free radicals on a daily basis.

As a result, the number of blind people in the US alone is projected to increase by a massive 70% by 2020, and there’s a high chance you could become part of that statistic if you '’t do anything to stop it.

But the most shocking thing of all is that the optometry industry continue to try to blind you to the truth, by falsely claiming that glasses and contacts are the only way to deal with your vision loss, when in reality, all they do is make your eyesight worse.

California Poppy

Calised from Dr. Fenton.

California Poppy – Health Benefits and Side Effects Botanical Name: Eschscholzia californica.

Habitat: The California poppy is native to California but is found along the entire western coast of the United States as far north as Washington state and as far south as Mexico. In addition, it has also been found in southern France, Australia and Chile. It is the California state flower.

Plant Parts Used: Root, leaves and seeds. Bitter to the taste with subtle euphoric properties, the entire plant of the Californian poppy is harvested in maturity.

The main active ingredients are alkaloids such as chelirubine, sanguinarine, and macarpine.

Gentle in effect, the major health properties of this herb are sedative, analgesic, and antispasmodic in action.

The California poppy is a member of the poppy family and somewhat distantly related to the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum). While the California poppy does contain some sedative alkaloids, it contains no real opium.

In addition, this herb has also been used to improve intellectual capacity, memory, and concentration in the elderly.

The California poppy has been used as an herbal treatment for tooth pain. The o'talgic properties are found in the plant´s root, which is cut and applied directly to the affected area.

As a tincture, it is used for its antimicrobial properties applied externally to cuts and scrapes.

The herb´s analgesic and antispasmodic properties have been found useful in the relief of acute nerve and muscular centered pain.

It has been used as a remedy in cases of high fever, rapid pulse, and persistent spasmodic cough.

The leaves of the flower are used externally in powder form for antimicrobial properties as a treatment for the elimination of head lice with the same effectiveness as Berberis repens (creeping barberry).





California Poppy Extract

CALIFORNIA POPPY California poppy is used for trouble sleeping (insomnia), aches, nervous agitation, bed-wetting in children, and diseases of the bladder and liver. It is also used to promote relaxation.

In combination with other herbs, California poppy is used for depression, long-term mental and physical tiredness (neurasthenia), nerve pain, various psychiatric conditions, blood vessel problems, sensitivity to weather changes, and sedation.

Trouble sleeping (insomnia).
Aches.
Bed-wetting.
Diseases of the bladder.
Diseases of the liver.
Other conditions.

SIDE EFFECTS:

California poppy appears to be safe for most people when taken appropriately by mouth for three months or less. There isn't enough information to know if California poppy is safe for longer term use.

Surgery: California poppy can slow down the central nervous system, causing sleepiness and other effects. There is some concern that California poppy might slow down the central nervous system too much when combined with anesthesia and other medications used during and after surgery. Stop using California poppy at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

Vitamin D is needed at every level for whole body health. In fact, every single type of tissue in your body has receptors for Vitamin D. Your bones, heart, brain, muscles, immune system, you name it, all require sufficient Vitamin D to function optimally. Vitamin D is also the only vitamin that also functions as a hormone in the body, making it even more important to be sure you are not deficient or insufficient in this all important micronutrient.

Vitamin D deficiency is unfortunately all too common… According to a 2011 study, 41.6% of adults in the United States are deficient in Vitamin D, easily making this one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the United States. The % of those deficient goes up to 69.2% in Hispanics and 82.1% in African-Americans. This is due to the fact that those of us with darker skin absorb less UV light from the sun, making Vitamin D synthesis more difficult, making Vitamin D supplementation even more important in these populations.

Have you heard of the ‘Vitamin D triage theory’? This theory states that while Vitamin D3 is essential to almost every single aspect of whole body health, it can ONLY support all of these areas of our well being if we have enough. When Vitamin D is deficient, or even suboptimal, it will ONLY play a role in its most basic life supporting functions, such as regulating calcium levels in the blood stream. It’s role in immune function, neurotransmitter balance, genetic expression, and more, will be slowed or stopped completely until Vitamin D3 is brought back up to optimal levels!

Vitamin D deficiency is easy and inexpensive to tackle! While it’s entirely clear that Vitamin D deficiency runs rampant in the United States, and throughout the world, the good news is that Vitamin D deficiency is easy to treat. Supplementation with the right kind of Vitamin D, and at the right dose, has been shown to quickly turnaround insufficiencies quickly and easily in most people.

My Vitamin D3/K2 formula is essential for calcium absorption and bone health. Vitamin D facilitates calcium absorption from the GI tract into the bloodstream and thus plays an important role in maintaining bone density. Once Calcium is absorbed, Vitamin K helps transport calcium from the bloodstream into the bone. Together these two vitamins help maintain appropriate calcium skeletal distribution. Calcium is critical for optimal bone density as well as normal growth.

Vitamin D supports neurological health and a positive mood! Often called the ‘sunshine vitamin’, Vitamin D3 plays a unique role in helping to regulate neurotransmitter balance in the brain, and therefore, mood and outlook. Due to its function in regulating serotonin and dopamine production and release in certain regions in the brain, Vitamin D plays a big role in helping to support and maintain a positive and happy mood.

Vitamin K2’s role in supporting bone & cardiovascular health is crucial. We all know that calcium is critical for our overall health, especially that of our bones. One important fact you may not be were of though is that calcium needs support from Vitamin K2 to actually make its way from your bloodstream into your bone. This is extremely important as excess calcium in the bloodstream can disrupt kidney health, and actually build up in soft tissue and arteries compromising cardiovascular health. Vitamin K2 helps maintain both cardiovascular AND bone health by ferrying excess calcium from the bloodstream into the bone where it is needed. This also prevents calcium from building up in soft tissues and arteries thereby supporting the maintenance of cardiovascular health as well.

Vitamin D3 is essential for supporting healthy immune system function. If you’re finding yourself under the weather too often, that may be a sign that your Vitamin D levels are suboptimal. Vitamin D works hand in hand with your body to modulate immune activity. Many immune cells have receptors for Vitamin D including macrophages, dendritic cells, monocytes, as well as T-lymphocytes and B-lymphocytes. This means that Vitamin D plays a big role in modulating both innate and adaptive immune responses, thereby regulating everything from reactivity to antigens and pathogens, and even chronic disease states and autoimmunity.

Suggested Use: Take 1 pill every other day. Take for 2 months and recheck blood levels.

How to fight depression with vitamin D And minimize risk of sun damage Maria Cross, MS Nutritionist.

And therein lies your dilemma. You’re advised to cover up, or slather yourself in sunscreen at the first hint of a sunbeam. Yet avoiding the sun is counterintuitive: we have a primeval love of warm weather, and merrily strip off to the bare minimum whenever the opportunity to do so presents itself.

The advice to avoid direct sunlight at all costs is now being questioned, as understanding of the role of vitamin D as an antidote to depression continues to grow. So too is our understanding of certain plant chemicals?—?carotenoids?—?which can help protect against the damaging effects of the sun.

You probably associate vitamin D with bone health, but that’s just a fraction of the picture. Vitamin D also plays an important role in brain development?—?there are receptor sites for this vitamin throughout the brain.

A whole spectrum of neurological disorders have been linked to lack of vitamin D. These include depression, schizophrenia, dementia (including Alzheimer’s disease), and Parkinson’s disease.

Over two-thirds of people in the US and Canada have ‘suboptimal’ vitamin D.

Figures for people living in the UK are similar. A study of 45 year-old British adults revealed that 60% were vitamin D deficient?—?rising to 90% during spring and winter.

And even in the southern hemisphere, specifically Australia, deficiency affects a third of the population.

No wonder levels of depression continue to skyrocket.

Vitamin D is made in the skin in the presence of sunlight. Or more specifically, on exposure to solar ultraviolet B (UVB). You obtain around 90% of your vitamin D supply from sun exposure - so you can see why there’s a problem here with the advice we are given to avoid the sun.

Some vitamin D is stored in the liver, which is just as well, considering. However, we can only make it during the summer months, and we can only store so much. Supplies are probably non-existent by the end of October; after that you need backup.

I am assuming that, like me, you are a resident of the northern hemisphere (with apologies to any southern hemisphere folk.) Wherever you currently reside, and whatever your ethnicity, we all share the same genetic inheritance. We can all trace our roots back to Africa. Equatorial East Africa, to be precise.

Those were the days! We ran about, mostly naked, enjoying wall-to-wall sunshine all year round. Bliss. We didn’t know it, but we had vitamin D on tap. Our dark skins offered protection from the excesses of the sun’s rays. Then, around 70,000 years ago (the experts are still debating the exact date) we upsticked and set off to explore the big wide world.

Our ancestors made some baffling choices about where to settle, and ended up in some rather inhospitable places, places that required wearing more than just a strategically positioned fig leaf, if they were to survive.

Migrating away from the equator, and wearing animal skins, meant a much-reduced level of exposure to sunlight.

But at least they were outside, mainly. Today, we have less exposure than ever, spending most of our time enclosed within insulated buildings. Couple that with lousy summers and surplus sun screen, and your chances of making adequate vitamin D are toast.

Vitamin D deficiency is a problem for higher latitude dwellers (we northern folk), and for dark-skinned people, who need about five times as long to produce vitamin D as the fair skinned. That’s because of the skin pigment melanin, which blocks absorption of UVB.

It’s also a problem for anyone who doesn’t get out much, for the elderly, for the very young, and for people who cover their entire bodies whenever they do venture out.

the few dietary sources of this vitamin are all animal-based. Oily fish is a good source, especially salmon. Even then, it has to be wild. Farmed salmon contains relatively little vitamin D. A smaller amount can be obtained from eggs, meat and dairy.

If, like me, you were forced to chug cod liver oil as a child, get over it. It is an exceptionally rich, albeit highly unpalatable, source of vitamin D.

As we age, we become more vulnerable. That’s because our ability to make vitamin D in the skin reduces with age. People over 60 require three to four times more sun exposure than people under 20.

everyone should have a short daily burst of sun exposure, without the use of sunscreen.

researchers in Spain have endeavoured to answer it. They estimated that the duration of daily sun exposure required to obtain the recommended dose of vitamin D (around 1,000iu/day) is 10 to 20 minutes in spring and summer. That’s in Valencia, Spain. Unfortunately figures for other countries are not available, but you get the drift.

If you have ever lain in bed, staring at the ceiling and wondering how it is that all plant life on Earth does not burn to a crisp, shortly after sunrise, here is your answer: carotenoids.

Carotenoids are plant antioxidants that protect plants from damage from UV light. They are able to absorb the harmful chemicals produced during photosynthesis, the process whereby plants make energy from sunlight.

When we eat foods that contain carotenoids, they kindly pass on this built-in protection mechanism. It is a beautiful example of the circular nature of life, of which we are an integral part.

Carotenoids take the form of an orange/red pigment, so foods that contain them are easily identifiable: sweet potato, carrots, bell peppers, tomatoes, pumpkin, squash, cantaloupe melon, mango and apricots are good examples. Less identifiable are the carotenoid-rich, dark leafy greens whose green pigment camouflages the orange. These include kale, spinach, cabbage and broccoli.

There are many different types of carotenoid, the best known being beta carotene (carrots), lycopene (tomatoes), alpha carotene (pumpkin and carrots), lutein, and zeaxanthin (kale and spinach).

Consuming carotenoid-rich food significantly lowers your risk of sun damage and skin cancer. A diet rich in lycopene in particular has been found to significantly lower the risk of burns to the skin.

And when the sun don’t shine?

Vitamin D supplementation is available in two forms: ergocalciferol (D2) and cholecalciferol (D3). It was once thought that both forms were used by the body, but we know now that D2 is considered inert, and of no value. Vitamin D3 is the form the body can use, and which is made in the skin on exposure to UVB. It is converted to 25-OHD, also known as calcidiol. It is as 25-OHD that vitamin D circulates in the blood.

How Much Vitamin D-3 Is Safe to Take Without Toxicity? Vitamin D is responsible for proper absorption of calcium, so you need lots of this vitamin every day for optimal bone strength. Vitamin D-3 is the form found in many supplements and most foods that are rich in vitamin D, and it's the kind your body makes when you get sun exposure. Although D-3 is beneficial, too much can lead to toxic effects.

The majority of vitamins and minerals have a tolerable upper intake level, which is the maximum amount you can consume before experiencing dangerous side effects. For all forms of vitamin D, including D-3, adults shouldn’t have more than 4,000 international units, or 100 micrograms, in a day, according to the Food and Nutrition Board. This amount is over six times the recommended daily amount of 600 international units, or 15 micrograms.

You might not even know that you took too much vitamin D, since the initial side effects are relatively general. Weight loss and urinating frequently are early warning signs. As your vitamin D level rises, it can impact your heart rhythm, leading to arrhythmia. In more severe cases, excessive vitamin D can cause your calcium level to spike, which can harden tissues and vessels. Over time, you could experience permanent artery, heart or kidney damage. These severe signs of toxicity, however, are unlikely unless you’re regularly consuming over 10,000 international units a day, reports the Office of Dietary Supplements.

Are Americans Really Getting Too Much Vitamin D? A Critical Look at Recent Media Warnings A recent study claims many Americans are taking dangerously high doses of vitamin D, warning 4,000 IUs/day is the recommended max and that anything above this can lead to calcifications and other health problems

Indeed, it is important to maintain not only the proper balance of vitamin D and calcium, but also magnesium and vitamin K2. Lack of balance between these nutrients is what causes symptoms of vitamin D toxicity

The study’s authors assume the vitamin D dosage recommended by the National Academy of Medicine is scientifically substantiated. In reality, it underestimates vitamin D needs by a factor of 10, due to a mathematical error that has never been corrected

Higher vitamin D levels REDUCE the risk of liver cancer by up to 50% NEW research reveals.





Garlic

Mercola: "Containing the Powerful S-Allyl-Cysteine (SAC), This Black Garlic Has More Than Double the Antioxidant Power of Regular Raw Garlic. Now You Can Enjoy Black Garlic’s ‘Secret Sauce…*" Double Fermentation Takes This Vegetable From Super to Superlative. As if this vegetable couldn't get any healthier, this special fermentation process creates a potent substance not normally found in the original food. And that helps drive its health-promoting and free radical-scavenging abilities off the charts.

Raw garlic by itself has many potential health benefits.* But as I recently discovered, there are different possibilities when raw garlic is aged and fermented.* Before we get into the fermentation aspect, let's first take a look at raw garlic and its possibilities…

You may seem surprised that I refer to garlic as a vegetable. Most people probably consider it an herb or spice. But in reality, it is neither. Garlic belongs to the allium genus of vegetables that includes onions, leeks, chives, and shallots.

Raw garlic contains a wide array of phytocompounds (plant nutrients) that act together to create various responses and reactions in your body.*

But what makes garlic such a nutritious and potent vegetable? It has a unique hidden secret weapon, and it has all to do with a very interesting fact that a clove of garlic has very little aroma by itself.

Yet, I'm sure you're aware of its pungent odor firsthand. It's not until garlic is chewed (not many people enjoy doing this) or crushed in some sort of food preparation that the secret is revealed. Of course, that is when you get the very distinctive odor.

The end result of all this is a chemical reaction that creates one of the most pungent and potent antioxidants from the plant kingdom called allicin. The finer the chopping and intensity of crushing, the more allicin is produced and the greater its potency.

Unfortunately, it's difficult to get allicin up to biologically active levels in your body. Allicin is very short-lived – in most cases lasting less than an hour. Cooking, crushing, aging, and processing garlic causes allicin to quickly break down into other compounds.

It's through these other compounds (particularly one) where fermentation can come into play to provide a whole new dimension of potential health benefits.*

What if I told you that there was a form of garlic, called black garlic that has a sensational taste?

The black color occurs due to aging, carmelization, and fermentation. The fermentation process involves high heat and aging time. Even though the process may at first seem simple, what occurs chemically and biologically is quite complex.

Throughout the process enzymes are broken down, and proteins and sugars in garlic combine to create the distinct black color – as well as create the sweet balsamic taste and chewy texture.

There's another very important thing that happens during the garlic fermentation process. Remember our raw garlic secret weapon (allicin mentioned above)? Well, the majority of allicin is destroyed.

How could this possibly be important if it's destroyed in the process? Well, an exciting biologically conversion takes place with the allicin that creates an even more potent antioxidant in black garlic.

*Dr. Mercola's Fermented Black Garlic contains 800 mg of black garlic

*includes rice concentrate.

I've been taking this multi vitamin for about a month. It's the first vitamin I've taken that was easy on my stomach and I could notice an actual difference within a few weeks. I notice an increase in energy and feel like I can get through the day much easier.

These are synthetic vitamins with a whole food blend. The name is misleading. Update: I am very impressed! The CEO of the company contacted me. The vitamins that are not derived from the whole food portion are still synthetic.

Since I’ve been taking these vitamins, my energy has come up noticeably. I am able to avoid dozing off in the middle of the day. I recommend this for anyone who might think they have a D and/or B deficiency. It can be a bit of a hard swallow but it’s very good.

Pills are easy to digest and you can feel the difference. I find less of a need for coffee during my hectic work day.

We only take 2 capsules for breakfast instead of the recommended 3 and that's enough.

I didn't notice the warning of Sunflowers, Ragweed or Daisy until I had been using the product for 30 days. I don't have a severe allergy to sunflowers, I just can get a little runny nose and itchy around my body. This product is amazing!! I am happy I found something that is giving me everything I need that I can't possibly consume in 1 day. It's boosted my energy, helped with brain fog and cleared some intestinal issues.

Curcumin

Myers: Curcumin has amazing inflammation balancing properties.
It is the most active ingredient found in turmeric! Although turmeric is a wonderful spice, it would require a massive amount to reap the anti-inflammatory benefits curcumin has to offer. My Curcumin formula is concentrated into a fat soluble form that helps it penetrate into your cells so it goes exactly where it needs to with minimal effort. It supports inflammation and pain s well as your heart, liver, and kidney function, and encourages your body’s natural detoxification process!

Fat Soluble Curcumin supports a healthy inflammation response in a variety of ways. Not only does it positively impact genetic expression in genes that regulate systemic inflammation, it also supports the production of T-reg cells that favorably affect cytokine production, as well as act as a free radical quencher by neutralizing inflammation causing free radicals. This is of utmost importance for autoimmunity.

100% organic. No fillers. The amount of Turmeric Curcuminoids in the product is 100mg per serving (2 veggie capsules)

The nutrition label on the box is incorrect. The front of the box says 120 capsules are a 60 day supply. The serving size is 2 capsules which together contains 1500 mg of the cur urmin complex, 140 mg of ginger and 10 mg of Bioperine. There are only 60 servings, or a 2 month supply, in each bottle.

Comment: my number 1 big deal, I am taking less Ibuprofen and Aleve! Finally!

I have planter fasciitis and with taking the product for three days I noticed a decrease in the pain. I can't wait to feel the results after 30 days. I know it is a great natural way to help with arthritis and many others...

Four years ago, I had a root canal. The "tooth" has been painful ever since. I started taking the Turmeric combination because I read it helps with inflammation. My "tooth" stopped hurting. When I ran out of the Turmeric I took glutathione on the recommendation of a friend. My "tooth" started hurting again. I ordered Turmeric again, started taking it and two days later my "tooth" is not as painful. Well, I've learned my lesson. The Turmeric, I believe, truly does fight inflammation in the body. That's my story.

Really do feel a difference. I have knee and shoulder problems and they both feel better since this helps with inflammation. The lack of pain has helped me sleep better and feel much better mentally. My only negative remark is about your box. Ther are several typos and grammar errors. Your company will appear more professional if you fix this. Other than that, great product! Happy to find a natural solution instead pf a pharmaceutical one.

My grandmother has been taking 1 a day for about a month now and her arthritic swelling and pain has decreased quite a bit. She says she can not believe how much these have helped, they help more than some of her prescriptions!

What TURMERIC does to your body on this PC in documents

Known as the ‘golden spice’ of India, turmeric could just be one of the most effective and powerful nutritional supplements on the planet. There are literally dozens of high quality published studies showing it has incredible benefits for the brain and body.

Turmeric contains compounds called curcuminoids. The most active form is called curcumin and as you’ll soon find out it has some very powerful anti-aging health benefits.

THE HISTORY OF THIS SUPER SPICE

The first instances of turmeric being utilized by humans dates all the way back 4000 years ago. It initially made its appearance to the Vedic culture in India where it was utilized as a culinary spice with religious significance.

By 700 A.D., it had made its way to China and East Africa started using it just 100 years later. By 1200 A.D. West Africa also caught on—and soon it began spreading rapidly all over the world.

The initial allure of the spice was solely for its taste. But there are records showing that at around 250 B.C, turmeric was being used as an ointment to help relieve the negative symptoms from food poisoning. People knew very early on that this was no ordinary spice… that it had several special healing properties.

TURMERIC FUN FACTS

India produces nearly all of the total turmeric available today and they also consume up to 80% of it

Turmeric has to undergo an extensive process before it can be used. This involves boiling or steaming the turmeric to remove the raw odor, gelatinize the starch, and ensure the color is uniform.

More than 100 components have been isolated from turmeric

The turmeric plant looks very similar to the ginger plant and maintains a rhizome (underground stem)

As previously mentioned, curcumin is the most active ingredient and it’s found in ginger, so when we talk about turmeric, we’re actually referring to curcumin

Turmeric is very commonly used in dishes containing curry, which are the most popular Indian dishes

In India, bride and grooms apply a turmeric based paste all over their skin, especially on their face and arms as it’s said to help beautify the complexion

AMAZING ANTI-AGING HEALTH BENEFITS OF TURMERIC

Anti-Aging Benefit #1: Powerful Anti-Inflammatory

Stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, toxins in the air we breath and in the water we drink---all of them contribute to chronic inflammation.

This can eventually lead to heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and possibly even cancer

Studies now demonstrate that turmeric can help you combat inflammation that’s currently present as well as prevent it down the road.

It works by targeting a variety of different steps in the inflammation pathway, which in turn decrease inflammation.

As a medication, it is used to decrease pressure in the eyes, as in glaucoma, and to lower increased intracranial pressure.

Generic Drugs

What Are Authorized Generic Drugs and Are They Better? Have you ever had problems with generic drug substitutes? If so, have you ever asked for authorized generic drugs? Learn what they are and why they might be better.

The trouble with generic drugs is that many of the ingredients are now made in China without a lot of FDA oversight. Finished pills are often manufactured in India, Thailand, Slovakia, Brazil, Mexico and goodness knows where else. We have questions about FDA monitoring. That’s why authorized generic drugs intrigue us. Sadly, many health professionals have no idea what they are.

Why Is It So Hard To Get Authorized Generic Drugs?

Q. I want to share my experience trying to purchase an “authorized generic” drug. Our doctor did not know what that phrase meant, nor did any of the pharmacists we talked to.

I found online the label information for the authorized generic and supplied that to CVS. CVS ordered the drug using the NDC code, but that was over a month ago and it is still not in stock.

Walgreen could not find the NDC code in their computer. In the meantime, we had to go ahead and buy the brand-name drug–over $500 for a 30-day supply. Why is this so difficult?

What Are Authorized Generic Drugs?

When a brand name medicine loses its patent, the original manufacturer sometimes strikes a deal with a generic drug maker. That allows the generic company to sell the exact same formulation, made from the same “recipe.” Sometimes the authorized generic is made on the same production line as the brand name drug.

As you discovered, most health professionals are unaware of this category. That may be in part because the generic drug industry, pharmacies and the FDA have promoted the idea that generic drugs in general are just as good as their brand name equivalents.

Melatonin

Natrol Melatonin 3mg Fast Dissolve Tablets, 150 Count 5s $10.99 ($0.07 / Count)

R: Lower dosage is best! This Natrol Melatonin is outstanding. I've been using the 3mg tablets for months now and find it much more beneficial than the one containing more mgs. I was advised by my son to take little dosage as opposed to the larger 5mg and more. For some reason, the body reacts better to the lower dosage, not sure why but hey...It works for me and the Natrol brand is my go-to choice.

R: This melatonin works so well. I use it in conjunction with a produce called Dream Release and am amazed with the results. I've had difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep for years and sadly a lack of dreams which I know are necessary. Since beginning these products, even if I wake up, I quickly fall back asleep and dream the night away!

Dr. Axe: 7 Pine Bark Extract Benefits, Including for Skin, Hearing & Diabetes We all know the power of antioxidants to improve health and the high-antioxidant foods we should eat regularly. But did you know that pine bark extract, like pine oil, is one of nature’s super antioxidants? It’s true.

What gives pine bark extract its notoriety as a powerful ingredient and super antioxidant is that it’s loaded with oligomeric proanthocyanidin compounds, OPCs for short. The same ingredient can be found in grapeseeds, the skin of peanuts and witch hazel bark. But what makes this miracle ingredient so amazing?

these amazing compounds exude antibacterial, antiviral, anticarcinogenic, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties. Pine bark extract can help reduce muscle soreness and may help improve conditions relating to poor circulation, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, diabetes, ADHD, female reproductive issues, skin, erectile dysfunction, eye disease and sports stamina.

Pine Bark Extract Benefits

1. Lowers Glucose Levels, Improving Diabetic Symptoms

2. Helps Prevent Hearing Loss and Balance

3. Staves Off Infections

4. Protects the Skin from Ultraviolet Exposure

5. Decreases Erectile Dysfunction

6. Reduces Inflammation

7. Helps Increase Athletic Performance

8. Boosts vitamin C absorption

Pycnogenol Pine Bark Extract; Pycnogenol is investigated for its general health and anti-diabetic properties and its ability to enhance Nitric Oxide, which appears to significantly help erectile dysfunction.

Pycnogenol is a patented formulation of Pine Bark Extract which is standardized to 65-75% Procyanidin compounds by weight. Procyanidins are chain-like structures consisted of catechins similar to some found in green tea (the green tea catechins that do not have 'gallate' in their names). Pycnogenol is similar to Grape Seed Extract and Cocoa Polyphenols as those are the three most common sources of Procyanidins.

Most of Pycnogenol's benefits appear to be catered towards blood flow (with the common mechanism being related to Nitric Oxide being increased) and towards blood glucose control. The former exerts cardioprotective effects and may help with erectile dysfunction, while the latter appears to be anti-diabetic mostly.

It does appear to possess dual anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, with the latter being confirmed in humans and possibly being subject to a build-up effect over time. The low-dose buildup effect of Pycnogenol as antiinflammatory would make it useful in a multinutrient format, but it may not be the most potent antiinflammatory in isolation. The degree of measured antiinflammatory potential on COX enzymes (targets of Aspirin) are still lower than Aspirin itself.

How to Take

Although doses in the range of 40-60mg have been noted to be effective over a prolonged period of time, standard doses of Pycnogenol appear to be in the range of 100-200mg.

Studies have used twice daily dosing (dividing the daily total into two even doses to be taken with breakfast and dinner) as well as once daily dosing with breakfast, both appear effective and no comparative studies have been conducted to see which is better. Although it is usually recommended to be taken with meals out of prudency, this does not appear to be an absolute requirement.

Email from Joshua Corn

Berberine .. can improve such a wide range of age-related issues that I believe it will soon rival turmeric as the #1 way to effectively improve your overall health and delay the aging process. That's because this all-natural plant compound has been shown in studies to:

Lower LDL cholesterol by up to 25% and triglycerides up to 36%
Rev metabolism for optimal blood sugar balance, weight loss and energy
Promote overall heart health and optimal blood pressure
Boost brain health and combat age-related cognitive decline
Improve digestion and gastrointestinal microbial balance
Strengthen resistance against common illness-causing bacteria
Protect and support liver, pancreas and kidney function

Berberine is a natural alkaloid found in dozens of the world's most potent medicinal plants, including goldenseal and barberry. In fact, traditional medical texts are filled with mentions of these healing plants.

But it was only recently that scientists identified berberine as the one health-enhancing compound that these botanicals have in common.

And when they finally did, it set off a wave of research that continues to this day.

More than 4,000 studies have been published on berberine's remarkable health-boosting effects.[19] And as one study after another rolled in, it became apparent that this unique alkaloid held astonishing powers.

Here's an overview of 7 of the most profound, research-backed ways berberine can revolutionize your health.

#1: Reduces Cholesterol and Triglycerides Significantly and Safely

Big Pharma has created a multi-billion-dollar industry around controlling cholesterol and triglycerides with a "solution" that too often negatively impacts other aspects of your health.

Thankfully, berberine can come to the rescue. One study of participants with elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels reported that taking 1,000 mg of berberine daily for three months led to a remarkable 25% drop in LDL and a 35% drop in triglycerides—as well as a 29% reduction in total cholesterol—with no side effects.

Another study found much the same. In this second trial, scientists recorded a 21% reduction in LDL, a 36% reduction in triglycerides and an 18% reduction in total cholesterol—just by taking 1,000 mg daily for three months.

#2: It Dramatically Improves Metabolism, Promotes Weight Loss and Boosts Energy

Optimizing your metabolism is critical to living a long and healthy life, and taking berberine may be nature's single most effective way to do just that.

When your body's overall metabolism is in balance, you'll find that your blood sugar levels balance out effortlessly as well. Excess weight will seem to melt right off, and you'll feel a surge in your energy and overall vitality.

Left unchecked, however, metabolic issues typically lead to dangerous blood sugar imbalances that trigger oxidative stress and systemic inflammation. This in turn can lead to weight gain, cardiovascular damage, nerve damage, kidney failure, cognitive decline and even severe vision problems.

One notable clinical trial showed that taking 1,000 mg of berberine daily for three months resulted in a dramatic 20% reduction in fasting blood sugar and a 26% improvement in glucose tolerance

And five more studies confirm that berberine lowers blood sugar even more effectively than making drastic dietary changes and working out regularly![3] Of course, I don't suggest you pass up a healthy diet and exercise. Instead, just imagine the results you could enjoy combining this blood sugar-buster with a healthier diet and more exercise. The results will thrill both you and your doctor!

#3: Optimizes Your Heart Health and Blood Pressure Levels

In research published in the American Journal of Cardiology, people who took berberine for eight weeks had better heart function and were better able to exercise than those who took a placebo.

A good portion of berberine's positive effects on heart health stems from its ability to help keep blood sugar, weight, triglycerides and cholesterol in check, all of which can raise the risk of heart problems.

Berberine also stimulates the release of NITRIC OXIDE, a signaling molecule that relaxes blood vessels, increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and protects against hardening of the arteries.

And a surprising thing happened when researchers tested berberine on participants with blood sugar and cholesterol issues: They noticed reductions in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, too!

#4: Combats Age-Related Cognitive Decline and Mood Issues

Groundbreaking recent research is showing that berberine positively affects neurotransmitter activity related to long-term cognitive health and has a protective effect on brain cells.

Other fascinating research has shown that berberine inhibits activity of cholinesterase (ChE), the enzyme that breaks down the important neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is crucial for memory function, focus and concentration.

These findings corroborate earlier studies that have concluded that berberine provides a multi-pronged defense against age-related cognitive decline by addressing multiple risk factors.

#5: Makes Frustrating Digestive Issues a Thing of the Past

Traditional healers have long used goldenseal, one of the most common sources of berberine, for digestive relief. And today, science understands why it works so well to settle down digestive issues.

Oftentimes, digestive issues are caused by imbalances that develop in the intestinal microenvironment. And this is where berberine can provide tremendous digestive support. This remarkable compound inhibits pathogenic bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, without harming your good intestinal bacteria.

This is key to effective digestive relief ranging from gas and bloating to acid indigestion and more.

Studies have shown berberine hinders pathogens like E. coli, V. cholerae and H. pylori, which can cause all kinds of gastrointestinal distress.

One 2015 preliminary study found that it may even inhibit the growth of the dangerous and widely feared superbug, C. difficile.

#6: Turbocharges Your Immune System

Since up to 70% of your body's immune system resides in your intestinal tract, maintaining healthy digestive balance can provide a cascade of healthful benefits.

Berberine has the innate ability to keep pathogens in check, which can give your overall resistance a much-needed lift. It has a proven track record in natural medicine to treat and prevent urinary tract issues—researchers believe it stops E. coli from binding to the urinary tract walls.

Another preliminary study showed that berberine exhibits antiviral effects on common seasonal maladies that are particularly dangerous to seniors.

#7: Keeps Your Liver, Pancreas and Kidneys in Top-Notch Shape

A lifetime of processed foods, sugar intake and even moderate alcohol consumption can take a serious toll on your vital organs. That's why liver, pancreas and kidney problems all become more common as we age.

So how can the amazing natural solution that is berberine help you?

Recent studies show that its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powers specifically inhibit oxidative stress and inflammation of the liver, pancreas and kidneys.[18] And thank goodness for that!

Your liver works tirelessly to flush away toxins that lead to fatigue, brain fog and poor health. Your pancreas is a workhorse, too, producing insulin and enzymes that are critical for digestion. And your kidneys work 24/7 to remove waste from the blood and regulate water fluid levels.

Given all the hard work these organs do, this powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory boost can quickly help revitalize your health and vitality.

Here are 3 simple tips to make sure you purchase the right berberine supplement:

The Right Dosage: The research shows you need 1,000 mg of berberine daily to achieve the results shown in the studies. Many supplements contain only 250 mg to 500 mg, which isn't supported by the research to be effective.

The Right Form: The most impressive results came from studies using the highly purified berberine HCl form, not the unstandardized extract of the barberry plant, which is often used in supplements and provides only a small amount of actual berberine.

Quality Counts: Many berberine supplements are made overseas, which always makes me question their quality. Make sure the supplement you purchase is made in a U.S.-based facility.

It's called Berberine XTS™, and not only is it formulated to be one of the most potent berberine supplements on the market, it's priced to also be one of the most affordable as well at as low as $14.99 per bottle. This way nearly everyone can benefit from this amazing natural remedy.

PQQ, Berberine and Other Mitochondrial Enhancers : The food you choose to eat is one of the most important tools you can use to take control of your health. But supplements can also be useful, especially when it comes to improving mitochondrial function, which is an emerging and really important tool to optimize health.

I’m a naturopathic physician. I’m a graduate and I’ve served on the faculty and board of trustees of Bastyr University. As I was going through my education process in the early ‘80s, it occurred to me that if natural approaches to health and healing are based upon truth that they should be able to explain with modern scientific thought.

Over the last 35 years, I personally gathered 70,000 scientific articles, which support the use of diet, lifestyle, attitude adjustment, and the proper use of dietary supplements to promote health and healing. It’s from this storage database that I have written over 30 books that have been instrumental in bringing many safe and effective products to North America: things like ginkgo, St. John’s wort, quercetin, curcumin, deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), enteric-coated peppermint oil, glucosamine sulphate, PGX, and PharmaGABA. These are just some of the products I helped introduce.

supplements for mitochondrial resuscitation or improvement. There are two primarily. I’d like to discuss those. We can certainly go to others, but one is PQQ and then the other is berberine. Let’s go with the PQQ first – what is it and why it is useful.

JM: Thank you for sharing that. I couldn’t agree more. Actually largely because of the information you shared, I’ve adopted PQQ for the last six months. It’s part of my daily supplement regimen now. I’d like to go on to another supplement that is a part of my regimen, that we’ve written about before, and that you’re really excited about, which is berberine.

Interestingly, berberine seems to provide all the same benefits of metfor min with virtually none of the side effects. That’s my take on berberine. I love it. I think it’s just a magnificent nutrient that has so much potential. It’s really underappreciated. I mean, people just don’t understand berberine at this point.

MM: It’s quite interesting. Metformin was originally isolated from a plant that was used in the treatment of diabetes. Berberine-containing plants have also been used in treating type 2 diabetes historically. These plants include goldenseal, goldthread (Coptis japonica), Oregon grape root, and barberry. These plants have also been used for gastrointestinal infections, including liver function and a number of other health conditions.

Berberine is used as an aid in type 2 diabetes. It’s been rediscovered. There’s a w hole large body of science on berberine, which is an alkaloid. You mentioned the hormetic effect. It’s really quite interesting. Berberine probably, it works to a greater extent compared to the flavonoids.

Alkaloids are typically stronger in their effect than the flavonoids. I mentioned the flavonoids earlier. They’re neutralized in the body pretty quickly by binding to glucaronic acid or sulfur. Alkaloids like caffeine or nicotine, they circulate in a two to three forms. They tend to be stronger.

Berberine is really interesting for a lot of different things. It has a wide range of benefits, including mitochondrial function. It, too, is a very powerful AMPK activator. This is one of the key reasons why it’s been rediscovered.

The research on berberine right now is really focusing on its ability to improve blood sugar control, to lower blood pressure, and to lower cholesterol. If this were a drug, it’ll hit big numbers, because it’s kind of a holy grail. The drug companies would love to have a drug that would hit that triad of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes.

There were 27 double-blind, placebo-controlled trials with berberine for those conditions. The results were on par with what is the individual drug for those three conditions. In relationship to type 2 diabetes, the research shows it works as well as metformin. In terms of lowering cholesterol levels, it works as well as a statin. In terms of lowering blood pressure, it works as well as a type blood pressure-lowering drug. If you have something that works in all three of those areas, it will be a major breakthrough.

We know how it works and we know the results that we can expect. We know because there have been good double-blind, placebo-controlled studies – 27 of them. The research, it’s really quite significant. There have been several reviews of this research published relatively recently. You’re looking at clinical trials involving thousands of patients now. The results are showing that they’re very safe. They’re a very effective natural approach, a natural alternative to drugs used for these common conditions.

JM: Thank you for explaining that. Could you describe the typical dosages, and if there’s any side effect or concerns that should be addressed?

MM: The typical dose is 500 milligrams either two or three times daily. It’s best taken right before meals. It works to improve digestion. It’s a powerful use of plants that contain berberine work as bitters to stimulate digestion. These plants were also used, as I mentioned earlier, for kind of gastrointestinal infections, parasitic infections.

What we know about berberine’s pharmacokinetics, the way it’s absorbed and utilized in the body, is like metformin, it’s poorly absorbed. It looks like many of the benefits of metformin as well as berberine are related to their influence on the gut flora. This really kind of baffles a lot of the unenlightened scientists. As you know, Dr. Mercola, our microbiome is critical to our metabolism and to our insulin sensitivity.

Studies have shown that if we can influence the gut flora, the microbiome in a positive way, it can lead to really profound influence on improving our metabolism, helping to lose weight, helping to get our blood sugar levels under control, and helping to lower our elevated lipids. It looks like that many of the effects of berberine may not be to a systemic effect; it may be due to the effects that it has on the gut microbiome.

JM: This is not a pleasant-tasting supplement. You definitely want to take it in a capsule. There’s no question about it. It will dissolve in the intestine and it will generate most of its functionality thBut it’s very bitter. It will have a long aftertaste in your mouth if you happen to put it in. You do not want to do that. But it’s interesting. I didn’t realize it needed to be used before meals ideally. Now, this seems to me one of the supplements or the nutrients that would benefit from a cycling model. Would you agree with that?

MM: Yeah, it might be. You might want to give yourself a rest, a day or two. It really depends on what a person’s response might be. For example, anyone who has type 2 diabetes or even type 1 diabetes, you need to monitor your blood sugar levels. You can experiment a little bit. As long as you’re not seeing any adverse effect on your blood sugar when you stop the use for a day or two, it might be a good idea.

Berberine is very interesting because I’ve focused here and have talked about its effects on high blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar. But it also is very important for protecting against neurodegeneration. That’s another really big area of research. It does this in a magical way.

I say that because the science is just evolving. But what it looks like is it has some really interesting effects on mitochondria. It relates to many of the factors that you mentioned earlier. Those haven’t been fully elucidated, but I imagine that it is impacting all of those mechanisms that we know influence mitochondrial health and function.

Herbalists have known that side effect for years. That’s why they would utilize these berberine-containing plants preferentially. There are other plants that can be used for blood sugar control as well. Mulberry is a great plant that can help improve blood sugar control. Gymnema. There are a lot better choices I think out there than metformin. I encourage people to look into a natural approach. I think they’ll serve themselves better.

JM: That’s a great summary. Thank you for elucidating the benefits of mulberry. I didn’t realize that was one of its benefits. I’ve got four mulberry trees growing in my backyard, actually shrubs turning into trees. They’re about 15-foot tall. It reminded me that I need go back there and check them, because there are a lot of berries waiting for harvesting. That’s a lot tastier than berberine.

This gastrointestinal side effect is really nausea. It’s a profound nausea that I think really limits most people’s use of it. Because it’s not well absorbed, it’s staying in the gut. Really, it’s a very bitter-tasting substance. It’s a strong alkaloid.

MM: With mulberry, they actually use the leaves. There was this study

JM: Oh, the leaves; it’s not the fruit. Oh, darn

MM: Actually, they used the leaves in the study. They just used 3 grams of dried leaves.

They compared it to glyburide (which is Micronase, another type of type 2 diabetes medication), and mulberry performed far better than the drug. In addition to improving blood sugar control, lowering A1C levels, improving fasting blood sugar levels, there are other benefits noted with the mulberry. It increases the level of antioxidants. Serum antioxidant capacity was increased. It lowered LDL and total cholesterol levels.

It just seems to work much better than the drug. It’s just that there’s no money out there to advertise mulberry or mulberry extract. It’s really a very important approach I think. They are goo d answers for these epidemic conditions that people are suffering from out there, whether it’s high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes.

In regards to blood pressure, let me just share some of the recent studies with grape seed extract are really impressive. Three hundred milligrams of grape seed extract per day in now two double-blind studies have shown to lower blood pressure in people who have mild to moderate blood pressure into the normal range. We’re not talking about a few points that we typically see with some of the natural approaches. We see dramatic clinically relevant reductions just by taking a simple dietary supplement.

There are other natural approaches. Berberine, too, has been shown to normalize blood pressure: 500 milligrams two to three times a day before meals. There are various anti-peptides from fish and from milk that have shown ability.

My key message is that there are safe and effective alternatives. We use those safe and effective alternatives, until the diet and lifestyle and attitude adjustments have a chance to take hold. But we don’t lose focus. We focus on those real key areas that really lead to the condition arising in the first place – diet, lifestyle, and attitude.

JM: That’s right. One of my other passions is regenerative agriculture. I dumped a few hundred thousand pounds wood chips on my property, so I can grow stuff. That was a few years ago now. I actually have decent soil and I was able to grow the food I eat, which is great. I have big, large salad daily.

I want to thank you for enlightening me as to the benefit of the mulberry shrubs that I have. I’m going to start harvesting them and putting them fresh into my salad. There’s no reason to dehydrate. I’m just going to put them fresh every day along with the oregano, rosemary, thyme, and turmeric.

These are just magnificent herbs that you can just put in there every day. You could go through the hassle factor trying to buy them at the store and getting them organically, but it’s so much simpler when you grow them yourself.

MM: I want to encourage people to join my community as well. Go to my website DrMurray.com. I try to keep people up to date on things that I find interesting and hopefully they’ll find interesting as well. In this day and age, I think people have fallen in love with technology. I love technology as much as anybody. I know you do as well. But the greatest technology in the universe is nothing that man has created; it’s nature.

The B-complex vitamins are essential to basal mitochondrial function as metabolic coenzymes and methyl donors while PQQ provides novelB-vitamin like activity and advanced antioxidant support, in part by activation of key genetic transcription factors. Alpha lipoic acid provides additional support for mitochondrial energy utilization and combined with luteolin, offers enhanced nervous system antioxidant activity. Thiamin and niacin support healthy neuron cell longevity, neuronal membrane function and impulse conduction. L-5-MTHF, methylcobalamin and vitamin B6 support neuronal health as methylation cofactors in myelin and neurotransmitter biosynthesis. PQQ IS A NOVEL B VITAMIN-LIKE COFACTOR that encourages mitochondrial biogenesis. Alpha lipoic acid promotes mitochondrial function, neuron membrane integrity and antioxidant protection. Luteolin maintains healthy macrophage activity and gene expression of the nervous system.*

Ingredients: One vegetarian capsule contains: thiamin (as thiamin HCl) 125 mg, riboflavin (vitamin B2) 5 mg, niacin (as niacinamide) 100 mg, vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCl) 90 mg, folate (as Metafolin®, L-5-MTHF) 400 mcg, vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin) 1,000 mcg, biotin 400 mcg, panthothenic acid (as calcium pantothenate) (B5) 100 mg, riboflavin 5' phosphate (activated B2) 10 mg, pyridoxal 5' phosphate (activated B6) 10 mg, inositol hexaniacinate (no-flush niacin) 10 mg, alpha lipoic acid (thioctic acid) 100 mg, luteolin 20 mg, BioPQQ® pyrroloquinoline quinone disodium salt 10 mg. Other ingredients: ascorbyl palmitate, vegetarian capsule (cellulose, water).

R This product is a bit expensive, but it has not let me down. I've only taken it for a few days and i see the results. I have more energy and stamina. The B12 is mythylcobalimine instead of the synthetic cyan ocobalimine, which i prefer. I do not care for the vegetable capsule, only because I'm not sure how well my bidy breaks it down. I am happy they do not include other nasty fillers. I recommend this B complex.

R I think this is a great product and also use other Pure Encapsulations supplements based on my doctor's recommendation. My body has trouble processing B vitamins and this formulation has the more easily absorbable form of B12 that I need.

R Not only has my energy improved since starting this product 2 weeks ago, but so has my mental clarity, which was pleasantly surprising :) My joint pain I am noticing so far has decreased also.

ARTICLE:

PQQ, Berberine and Other Mitochondrial Enhancers : The food you choose to eat is one of the most important tools you can use to take control of your health. But supplements can also be useful, especially when it comes to improving mitochondrial function, which is an emerging and really important tool to optimize health.

I’m a naturopathic physician. I’m a graduate and I’ve served on the faculty and board of trustees of Bastyr University. As I was going through my education process in the early ‘80s, it occurred to me that if natural approaches to health and healing are based upon truth that they should be able to explain with modern scientific thought.

Over the last 35 years, I personally gathered 70,000 scientific articles, which support the use of diet, lifestyle, attitude adjustment, and the proper use of dietary supplements to promote health and healing. It’s from this storage database that I have written over 30 books that have been instrumental in bringing many safe and effective products to North America: things like ginkgo, St. John’s wort, quercetin, curcumin, deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), enteric-coated peppermint oil, glucosamine sulphate, PGX, and PharmaGABA. These are just some of the products I helped introduce.

supplements for mitochondrial resuscitation or improvement. There are two primarily. I’d like to discuss those. We can certainly go to others, but one is PQQ and then the other is berberine. Let’s go with the PQQ first – what is it and why it is useful.

PQQ is really quite interesting. That’s short for pyrroloquinoline quinone. That’s why we call it PQQ. It’s a great story. This compound was identified as being essential in mammalian nutrition relatively recently, in 1994. Eventually, it will be classified as a vitamin. Researchers didn’t realize that it was essential to human health until just recently. What they found is that it is really important for the health of the mitochondria. It exerts many, many different beneficial aspects to mitochondrial function.

I’m sure your viewers are well aware of how important mitochondria are to our health. It appears that PQQ is really the spark of life. You can say that we are stardust. This compound PQQ is found in intergalactic dust. It travels across the universe. It may be the seed of life, because our mitochondria definitely require this compound motor to produce energy. This compound is also critical in protecting the mitochondria from damage.

I’m sure you’ve talked about how exposed mitochondrial DNA is to free radicals and pro-oxidants. Really, it’s critical that we boost our level of PQQ. It’s contained in very small amounts in our diet. It’s probably in a realm close to like B12 or folic acid in terms of… This is very small amounts. When we ingest food, we can get some PQQ. But research is showing that when we take it by supplement form, we can really boost our PQQ levels and really see some pretty amazing effects.

most of the energy production in the cell, of course, occurs in the mitochondria, in the inner membra ne where they have the electron transport chains. That’s where these reactive oxygen species are produced.

Almost all of the free radicals in the body are produced within the mitochondria themselves. That’s why they’re so susceptible. They’re not covered and protected like nuclear DNA, like with histones and these proteins. They’re more susceptible. But thankfully, they also have lots of good mechanisms to repair, replicate, and just get rid of the damaged ones. The whole process here is to activate those mechanisms.

Emphasizing again the PQQ and berberine are supplements. That means they are used in addition to, not in place of, food. If you think of this as some type of magic fairy dust that you’re going to have to take twice a day to solve all your problems, you better think again. Because unless you integrate it with optimizing the fuel, which your mitochondria can use to limit the production of free radicals, it’s not going to work. It only works if you’re following the right program.

Let’s first talk a little bit about what it does and why it’s so special. You mentioned the reactive oxygen species that are produced during energy production. There are mechanisms that the mitochondria use to protect itself. One of those mechanisms is PQQ.

I know your audience is very familiar with the term “antioxidant”. The thing is everybody thinks all antioxidants are the same. They’re really not. You have to look at the type of pro-oxidant and free radical that is involved. You have to look at how many times an antioxidant can be used to really get a sense of how profound it is in protecting our cells.

PQQ is really a profound type of antioxidant. Every time an antioxidant neutralizes a free radical, that’s called a catalytic conversion. Some antioxidants just aren’t used very often. For example, vitamin C is only capable of going through four catalytic conversions. That means after it’s used four times, it’s no longer effective as an antioxidant.

The number of catalytic conversions that PQQ can be utilized for is in the realm of over 20,000 times. It has the greatest potential to be used over and over and over again. That really signifies how valuable it is to the mitochondria. It also plays a huge role in a process called mitochondrial biogenesis. Basically, that means regeneration of new mitochondria. It does a great job in killing off mitochondria that are not functioning properly and then stimulating the replication of the healthy mitochondria

It’s really kind of a cellular regenerator. It does this through its action on mitochondria. This is really exemplified in studies that have looked at the influence of PQQ in enhancing brain function and brain connections, and forming new brain cells. That translates to just having your brain function at a much higher level.

But science has not supported that that’s been beneficial. In fact, to the best of my knowledge, there are no studies that supported it does a darn thing. In fact, it may accelerate disease. You might wonder why. There’s a lot of science to support the fact that indiscriminate suppression of free radicals is not a good idea.

Now, of course, they’re bad but so is exercise. Exercise causes damage. If you overdo exercise, you will definitely harm and damage yourself and potentially prematurely kill yourself. You have to do it in moderation.

But these reactive oxygen species are very important signaling molecules. If you indiscriminately suppress their formation, you can interrupt really profoundly important metabolic pathways. That’s the fine balance that we’re doing. That’s why I’m so intrigued with using the fuel that you’re eating to radically limit the production.

Also rather than using a clear antioxidant like PQQ is to use hormetic herbs that you’re familiar with like raw cacao and resveratrol. Resveratrol is not an herb; it’s an extract from grape skins I understand. But, you know, these types of plant phytochemicals that produce a hormetic effect. They’re not antioxidants by themselves, but they cause an oxidative stress on the system that causes the body to produce its own antioxidants. It’s not indiscriminately shotguning them. I’m wondering if we can dialogue on that for a moment.

Yes. Flavonoids, polyphenols are quite interesting to mitochondrial function. There’s wisdom in the body. There’s wisdom in nature. If we look at the way flavonoids are transported in the body, they are not transported in a free form. They are bound. They’re bound to either sulfur or glucuronic acid. In this bound form, they become inactive.

This is really important because, like you said, we want to make sure that when we take something that is getting delivered not only to the tissues but also to the cell and to the parts of the cell that really needs the greatest support.

The latest science shows that when we ingest these polyphenols – whether they come from grapes, the other berries, raw cacao, or any of the other rich sources – they are bound to glucuronic acid and they are inactive. But at sites of inflammation, sites of infection, or when cells aren’t functioning properly, the cells release an enzyme called glucuronidase. This liberates the flavonoid or polyphenol and allows that polyphenol to enter the cell, enter the mitochondria, and affect change.

This has been demonstrated with mitochondria. It causes mitochondria to experience stress. When the mitochondria experiences that stress, it causes release of glucuronidase, and that ultimately leads to flavonoids entering in the mitochondria, protecting the mitochondria from free radical damage, and actually activating certain genomes that will allow the mitochondria to function much more efficiently and to reduce the inflammation and the stress.

There’s a lot of magic that happens out there. One of my great favorite quotes comes from Sir Arthur [Charles] Clarke. He wrote in 2001 the Space Odyssey. He says that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. When we look at nature, when we look at food, when we look at our bodies, we’re just learning. We’re just scratching the surface. A lot of things happening, it seems magical.

When it comes to our health, we’re learning more and more at just how important it is to get the right type of antioxidants, the right type of support. It’s not just indiscriminate use; it’s really targeted support for key cellular compartments, including our mitochondria.

JM: Thank you for sharing that. I was unaware of the importance of glucuronic acid and the whole process with the polyphenols and the flavonoids. I’m suspicious though that the PQQ, that mechanism isn’t involved here, because it’s more of a vitamin and not a hormetic stressor like these phytochemicals. Would that be true?

MM: I think the way you have to look at it is that the body, the mitochondria are going to store up that PQQ and use it appropriately. When you ingest the PQQ, it increases the number and the health of the mitochondria, which in turn increases the need for PQQ.

While our dietary intake is in the microgram level, supplementation wise, they’ve used dosages of 10 to 20 milligrams. Initially, the research was focused on improving brain health. This was based upon a lot of in vitro studies or test tube studies, and then that led to animal studies. In the ani mal studies, they showed a significant improvement in mental processing and memory. That led to human clinical studies that have shown the same thing.

What they showed quite dramatically is that the combination of PQQ with coenzyme Q10 produces better results in either nutrient alone. There are some synergistic effects with coQ10 . This improvement is the result of increased energy.

I looked at brain health. A lot of times the energy production is turned down like a dimmer switch. What PQQ, coenzyme Q10, and other mitochondrial enhancers do is they basically just brighten up that brain. They turn up that dimmer switch. They increase the energy production in that brain cell, so that brain cell functions more efficiently. That leads to better memory, better cognitive function, and feeling better as well.

That’s what they’re showing with these clinical studies with PQQ. In regards to brain health, these studies have used a combination of PQQ and coenzyme Q10 – 20 milligrams of PQQ with 300 milligrams of coenzyme Q10.

JM: Is that 20 milligrams in one single dose, or is it 10 milligrams twice a day?

MM: Either way it will work. A daily dose of 20 milligrams of PQQ and 300 milligrams of coenzyme Q10. Usually with coenzyme Q10, especially if you’re using the ubiquinone form, I like smaller doses given more often. With the absorption of PQQ, it doesn’t really matter. But if you’re using regular ubiquinone, I like smaller doses more frequently.

JM: The other fact to consider with ubiquinone, and even ubiquinol to a certain extent, is that it’s fatsoluble primarily. It’s best to be taken with fat in your meal rather on an empty stomach. That’ll improve it. We’re both big fans of that. There’s no question. I think probably we’re fans of that before we became fans of the PQQ, which I’m also in agreement with.

In my understanding the mechanism of ubiquinone or ubiquinol is that it actually facilitates the recycling of the other antioxidants. As mentioned previously the vitamin C gets used up after four times, PQQ 20,000 times, and vitamin E is probably somewhere similar with vitamin C. My understanding is if you have enough ubiquinone on board that four turns into a much larger number. I’m wondering if you can comment on that. It probably also facilitates the recycling of the PQQ.

MM: Yes. Exactly. With PQQ, it doesn’t need that much recycling. I think that with PQQ and coenzyme Q10, they facilitate the proper processing, not only the production of energy, but also dealing with some of the side effects of energy production, which is generation of a lot of pro-oxidants and free radicals.

I think with that combination, you’re getting enhanced energy production while simultaneously getting that protection. If you were just getting enhanced energy production, it would have potentially a negative effect, because you’ll be burning everything around it. I think with that combination, we’re getting really good protection. That means we’re getting all the benefits and reducing some of the risks

JM: Another question I have for you relates to a naturopathic principle. I don’t know if it has a name. But if anyone would know, it would most likely be you, an instructor or a teacher at Bastyr University, which I think is widely regarded as the best naturopathic university out there and certainly one of the oldest.

The principle, as far as I know, came out of the study done with St. John’s wort, where it found that intermittent use of many of these herbal remedies and phytonutrients is probably far superior, because you develop sort of a tachyphylaxis or a resistance over time if you use if continuously. I’m wondering if it’s true for PQQ that you need to really limit using it daily. Maybe use it for five days in a row and then take a two-day holiday.

I’m thinking it’s true for berberine and many of the other herbal hormetics, which we have tal ked about earlier, that supply the phenols and the flavonoids. I’m wondering what your thoughts are on that. I think more importantly, is this a well-recognized and established naturopathic principle?

MM: I think it is for certain types of adaptogens and immune enhancers. It really hasn’t been looked at with PQQ or a lot of the other supplements that are available. I kind of look at it as a long-term continual dosage schedule. But certainly, there is some evidence for certain herbs that maybe intermittent might be best.

I think that with PQQ, it’s probably just a matter of reaching saturation. We have to use higher dosages in order to get the mitochondria to act like sponges and take that PQQ up. Eventually, the sponges would be saturated. You may not need this high dose and you may not need to take it every day. But right now, the research – clinical research and human research – is just in its infancy. We’re going to have to follow the protocols that have been used. But what the studies have shown is pretty amazing.

They did a study where they just gave PQQ on its own. They looked at its influence on energy metabolism and markers of inflammation. One of the astounding results was just a single dose of PQQ dramatically lowered C-reactive protein. This is a marker for inflammation. Just taking it one time produced a dramatic reduction and normalization in many cases of elevated C-reactive protein.

That then leads to the question: what would continual supplementation produce? To date, there hasn’t been a long-term clinical study looking at PQQ in people who have elevated C-reactive protein. But there are studies, for example, with PQQ and its effects on blood lipids.

In these studies, what has been shown is that PQQ can act to lower LDL cholesterol levels on par with a statin without any side effect. I think the list of potential applications for PQQ is extremely long. We may start seeing benefits in these clinical studies that we may not have even had on that long list.

If you look at some of the metabolic effects of PQQ, they go well beyond improving mitochondrial function. One of its key activators is that PQQ can lead to activation of an enzyme called adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK). This enzyme I think is really a molecular target for modern humans.

As we age, the level of this enzyme drops: certain dietary practices, too much of the wrong types of fats, not enough of the good types of fats, not enough of the flavonoids in our diet, not enough of the metabolic enhancers and mitochondrial enhancers. We see a reduction in AMPK activity. Insulin resistance is probably the major cause of reduction in AMPK activity.

This enzyme plays a huge role in body fat composition. In our body, it plays a huge role in inflammation. It plays a huge role in blood lipids. It’s not surprising with PQQ activating this enzyme that we see improved blood sugar control, we see excess body fat, particularly visceral fat, decline, and we see drops in LDL cholesterol. I think that the effects of PQQ are going to be very far-reaching, and we’re just starting to learn the benefits. I don’t know with intermittent use or not. Right now, I think we just got to keep going with it.

JM: Thank you for that information. I was actually going to ask you that question about the molecular pathways that are activated by the PQQ. AMPK is one of them, which is one of the crucial ones for stimulating mitochondrial autophagy or mitophagy and mitochondrial biogenesis. But there are three other big ones, actually five: insulin, leptin, mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), and proliferator-activated receptor gamma co-activator 1-alpha (PGC-1a). Do you know if it influences any of those?

MM: Absolutely. It has really very profound activity on mitochondrial function. mTOR and all of those factors are influenced. It increases nerve growth factor. It is really very important in protecting against the type of oxidative stress that leads to Parkinson’s disease. That’s been a key area of focus. It does this via multiple mechanisms.

One of them is it protects against the self-oxidation of the gene called DJ-1. This gene gets damaged by various compounds. When it is damaged, it leads to Parkinson’s disease. PQQ has been shown to be protective against every known inducer of damage to that gene. It protects this gene from the damage caused by mercury and other heavy metals. It protects against damage caused by various neurotoxins.

It protects against the development of the alpha-synuclein, a protein associated with Parkinson’s. It also has effects of protecting the brain from the development of Alzheimer’s disease and against multiple mechanisms, including protecting the formation of beta-amyloid as well as protecting against the damage that beta-amyloid can cause in the brain.

It’s really far reaching. I think that PQQ is going to be a real superstar in the dietary supplement field. It’s really going to revolutionize natural therapies for many different health conditions.

We highlighted its synergy with coenzyme Q10. I think we’re going to learn that various cocktails of PQQ in combination with other compounds are going to produce better results than PQQ on its own. It makes a lot of sense when you start digging in and looking at how PQQ works, and how it’s synergistic with all these other wonderful compounds that we have available to us now.

White mulberry is an herb. The powdered leaves are most commonly used for medicine. White mulberry is native to China and is the food of silkworms. It was introduced into the United States in colonial times, during an attempt to establish a silk industry. The wood is very flexible and durable and has been used to make tennis rackets, hockey sticks, furniture, and boats. The fruit is a source of Food as well. Mulberry leaf is a kind of health drinking which contains about 17 kinds of amino acids, Vitamin C,B1,B2, as well as folic acid, Carotenoids, Ca, P, Fe, Mn, Na, etc.

R I've bought this product for my husband who is a diabetic. For a few months, he took one twice a day and one of his diabetes prescription pill. After losing about 15 lbs and getting his blood sugar under control, he stopped taking the prescription one but still taking the white mulberry. His blood sugar levels have been normal for a while now and we are thrilled. Great product!

R 've been taking these for a couple weeks and already have seen a decrease in my blood pressure. I'll keep taking and post a follow up. Update, I'm on my 2nd bottle. I am only taking 1 every morning and 1 at lunch time. I take apple cider vinegar pills daily also (or sometime drink the stuff, but it tastes awful to me), and I've noticed a great decrease in my appetite. I've changed my diet to mostly whole foods and stay within 1500-2000 calories per day. I've lost 18 pounds in a little over a month just by making these changes. My blood pressure numbers are within range too, so I definitely plan on continuing to take these White Mulberry supplements. I feel like they help me stay on the healthy eating track.

PQQ, Berberine and Other Mitochondrial Enhancers : The food you choose to eat is one of the most important tools you can use to take control of your health. But supplements can also be useful, especially when it comes to improving mitochondrial function, which is an emerging and really important tool to optimize health.

I’m a naturopathic physician. I’m a graduate and I’ve served on the faculty and board of trustees of Bastyr University. As I was going through my education process in the early ‘80s, it occurred to me that if natural approaches to health and healing are based upon truth that they should be able to explain with modern scientific thought.

Over the last 35 years, I personally gathered 70,000 scientific articles, which support the use of diet, lifestyle, attitude adjustment, and the proper use of dietary supplements to promote health and healing. It’s from this storage database that I have written over 30 books that have been instrumental in bringing many safe and effective products to North America: things like ginkgo, St. John’s wort, quercetin, curcumin, deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), enteric-coated peppermint oil, glucosamine sulphate, PGX, and PharmaGABA. These are just some of the products I helped introduce.

Berberine is used as an aid in type 2 diabetes. It’s been rediscovered. There’s a w hole large body of science on berberine, which is an alkaloid. You mentioned the hormetic effect. It’s really quite interesting. Berberine probably, it works to a greater extent compared to the flavonoids.

Alkaloids are typically stronger in their effect than the flavonoids. I mentioned the flavonoids earlier. They’re neutralized in the body pretty quickly by binding to glucaronic acid or sulfur. Alkaloids like caffeine or nicotine, they circulate in a two to three forms. They tend to be stronger.

Herbalists have known that side effect for years. That’s why they would utilize these berberine-containing plants preferentially. There are other plants that can be used for blood sugar control as well. MULBERRY is a great plant that can help improve blood sugar control. Gymnema. There are a lot better choices I think out there than metformin. I encourage people to look into a natural approach. I think they’ll serve themselves better.

JM: That’s a great summary. Thank you for elucidating the benefits of mulberry. I didn’t realize that was one of its benefits. I’ve got four mulberry trees growing in my backyard, actually shrubs turning into trees. They’re about 15-foot tall. It reminded me that I need go back there and check them, because there are a lot of berries waiting for harvesting. That’s a lot tastier than berberine.

This gastrointestinal side effect is really nausea. It’s a profound nausea that I think really limits most people’s use of it. Because it’s not well absorbed, it’s staying in the gut. Really, it’s a very bitter-tasting substance. It’s a strong alkaloid.

MM: With mulberry, THEY ACTUALLY USE THE LEAVES. There was this study

JM: Oh, the leaves; IT’S NOT THE FRUIT. Oh, darn

MM: Actually, they used the leaves in the study. THEY JUST USED 3 GRAMS OF DRIED LEAVES.

They compared it to glyburide (which is Micronase, another type of type 2 diabetes medication), and mulberry performed far better than the drug. In addition to improving blood sugar control, lowering A1C levels, improving fasting blood sugar levels, there are other benefits noted with the mulberry. It increases the level of antioxidants. Serum antioxidant capacity was increased. It lowered LDL and total cholesterol levels.

It just seems to work much better than the drug. It’s just that there’s no money out there to advertise mulberry or mulberry extract. It’s really a very important approach I think. They are goo d answers for these epidemic conditions that people are suffering from out there, whether it’s high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes.

In regards to blood pressure, let me just share some of the recent studies with grape seed extract are really impressive. Three hundred milligrams of grape seed extract per day in now two double-blind studies have shown to lower blood pressure in people who have mild to moderate blood pressure into the normal range. We’re not talking about a few points that we typically see with some of the natural approaches. We see dramatic clinically relevant reductions just by taking a simple dietary supplement.

There are other natural approaches. Berberine, too, has been shown to normalize blood pressure: 500 milligrams two to three times a day before meals. There are various anti-peptides from fish and from milk that have shown ability.

My key message is that there are safe and effective alternatives. We use those safe and effective alternatives, until the diet and lifestyle and attitude adjustments have a chance to take hold. But we don’t lose focus. We focus on those real key areas that really lead to the condition arising in the first place – diet, lifestyle, and attitude.

JM: That’s right. One of my other passions is regenerative agriculture. I dumped a few hundred thousand pounds wood chips on my property, so I can grow stuff. That was a few years ago now. I actually have decent soil and I was able to grow the food I eat, which is great. I have big, large salad daily.

I want to thank you for enlightening me as to the benefit of the mulberry shrubs that I have. I’m going to start harvesting them and putting them fresh into my salad. There’s no reason to dehydrate. I’m just going to put them fresh every day along with the oregano, rosemary, thyme, and turmeric.

These are just magnificent herbs that you can just put in there every day. You could go through the hassle factor trying to buy them at the store and getting them organically, but it’s so much simpler when you grow them yourself.

MM: I want to encourage people to join my community as well. Go to my website DrMurray.com. I try to keep people up to date on things that I find interesting and hopefully they’ll find interesting as well. In this day and age, I think people have fallen in love with technology. I love technology as much as anybody. I know you do as well. But the greatest technology in the universe is nothing that man has created; it’s nature.

R After I started working out a few months ago I felt so tired all the times. Instead of my energy increasing it just got lower. I went to the dr who recommended that I would try CoQ10 which I had never heard of before. I bought this brand because of the small capsules and the olive oil that would help with the absorption. It’s been absolutely amazing the difference in my energy since I started taking CoQ10. Waking up in the morning is so much easier now and I also find it easier to focus. I would recommend this brand to anyone.

R I've been taking this CoQ10 every day for 2.5 weeks and I notice a significant increase in my energy levels during the day. My Doctor recommended it for energy and heart health and I'm very happy with it so far.

R I feel more energetic! I was feeling very tired with low energy. My doctor recommended I take COQ10. I bought a bottle at a local drug store. But, stopped taking it because I started getting heartburn and I wasn't sleeping well. I found this one and liked that it had olive oil and no GMO's. I gave it a try and have not had any ill effects. My energy level is slowly coming back.

“The Perfect Storm That Threatens Your Mitochondria and Energy-Hungry Organs” Turn a blind eye to this and your heart, brain, immune function, cellular health and energy levels could suffer. Plus, you might even be rolling out the red carpet for free radicals to take center stage. And if you're taking any of these commonly used drugs, ignoring this might be downright foolish...

Dr. Mercola: So why do I single out the age of 30? For most people, this marks the start of a decline in production of an important nutrient along with a waning ability to convert it to its active usable form. For a few individuals, that decline can begin even earlier.

Because two other things start to happen, too, that can really put your cells and organs at risk. Assaults on your cells from free radicals rise as you age and your body’s natural defenses to fight them gradually weaken.

Researchers now know that these four factors can converge into a potentially perilous situation for your cellular energy and health, especially your mitochondria.

And since your mitochondrial function is at the heart of everything that happens in your body, that risk extends particularly to your energy-demanding heart muscle and the rate at which your organs age.

However, you don’t need to helplessly stand by and allow this storm to ravage your body. Researchers have identified a potent tool that can help make a difference.*

Most of each of your cells contain several hundred mitochondria – little energy factories that supply the majority of the fuel and energy that your body produces.

These cellular power plants create energy in the form of ATP or adenosine triphosphate from the food you eat combined with oxygen.

Tissues in your body that are more power-hungry, like your heart, brain, kidneys and muscles, have more mitochondria to help meet their needs.

You need plenty of healthy mitochondria to provide your body and organs with the fuel or energy they need to function properly.

However, in the process of meeting your body’s energy needs, your cells – and mitochondria – pay a steep price…

The intense energy-producing process creates byproducts known as reactive oxygen species (ROS). Excessive ROS can damage your cells and mitochondrial DNA and make your organs age faster. As you age, your levels of damage from mitochondria dysfunction rise and your body’s natural defenses weaken.

The net result from faulty mitochondria can affect your health and wellness.

This brings us to the researchers’ bottom line discovery about your mitochondria: They believe most health issues start with the breakdown of your cells’ mitochondria.

Since mitochondrial function is at the very heart of everything that occurs in your body, optimizing mitochondrial function – and preventing mitochondrial dysfunction – is the key to your total body health and wellness.

So how can you help optimize the health and efficiency of your mitochondria and make sure your cells and organs have the energy they need?

You can help increase the total number of mitochondria in your cells by exercising. High-intensity interval exercise is especially beneficial.

You can also boost the efficiency of your mitochondria by getting the proper nutrients. Magnesium is extremely important and so is another nutrient I’m about to tell you about… CoQ10: A Turnkey for Mitochondrial Health

Made by your cells, it’s found mostly on the inner membranes of your mitochondria.

Your body’s strongest fat-soluble antioxidant, CoQ10 helps safeguard your mitochondria from deterioration and death in two important ways:

It helps pump protons across the mitochondrial membrane for ATP production.*

It acts as a powerful scavenger for excess free radicals and helps reduce their damaging effects.*

Typically, the higher your levels of CoQ10, the healthier your mitochondria and cells.* And because your heart, brain, liver and kidneys are all high energy-demanding organs, those cells especially need high concentrations of CoQ10.

When your mitochondria produce optimal levels of ATP or energy, your cells thrive and so do your organs, especially high-energy organs like your heart and muscles. And when your body has plentiful fuel for all its functions, you can often feel that extra energy and stamina in your everyday life!*

your ability to convert CoQ10 to ubiquinol, its active, useful form, becomes less efficient as you age. One researcher, Schulman, points out that some people cannot convert CoQ10 to ubiquinol at all in their bodies.

Liposomal CoQ10 contains phospholipids from sunflower lecithin to provide a formula that doesn’t contain soy or bioengineered ingredients. And just like our Vitamin D, we use the same high-quality source of sunflower lecithin that has been tested to show it is free of aflatoxins — a potentially dangerous carcinogen that can grow on sunflower seeds if they’re not properly stored.

Let’s take a closer look at how Liposomal CoQ10 potentially works in your body:

  1. After swallowing the capsule, it travels into your stomach and intestines.
  2. The acids in your stomach cause the capsule to rapidly disintegrate and release its contents.
  3. The CoQ10 and lecithin mix with water and can form structures called liposomes.
  4. The liposomes contain phospholipid bilayers of molecules and many of these surround the CoQ10 to help protect and transport this nutrient.
  5. The CoQ10 is incorporated into the fat molecules of the phospholipid-liposome bilayers.
  6. The liposome bilayers encapsulating the CoQ10 nutrient are similar to the cell walls themselves, they help provide easy access across your gut membrane into your bloodstream.
  7. Once the liposomes are absorbed from your GI tract into your bloodstream, they penetrate more rapidly into the target tissues and cells where they are needed.

Why Your Entire Body Will Love Our Ubiquinol

Supports optimal heart and cardiovascular health and function*
Helps boost your energy and stamina levels over the long term*
Supports optimal energy production in the mitochondria in all of your cells*
Helps you feel younger and reduces the normal signs of aging by helping to prevent damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals*
Supports healthy blood pressure levels that are already in the normal range*
Enhances the support of your immune and nervous systems*
Supports the health of your brain, heart, liver and kidneys by helping tissue cells generate energy and protect against damage from free radicals and oxidative stress*
Support healthy levels of CoQ10 and ubiquinol in your body if you're taking statins or other drugs*

Just one word of caution… Ubiquinol isn’t a stimulant, so please don’t expect a dramatic “surge” in energy immediately after you start taking it.

Rather, as your blood, tissue and organ levels of ubiquinol gradually rise to healthy normal levels, you’ll likely see an increase in your overall energy levels and stamina.

Your body can’t make cellular energy for your heart and other vital organs out of conventional CoQ10 – it must first be converted into ubiquinol, a less efficient process. Why wait and take the risk?

More than 60 research studies show the health benefits of ubiquinol, much of it peer-reviewed, human clinical studies conducted at prestigious universities*

Studies consistently show Ubiquinol to be the form of CoQ10 that’s easier for your body to use, especially after the age of 30

It enables you to be less dependent on your body to convert ubiquinone to its active form, ubiquinol. (More than 90 percent of CoQ10 exists as ubiquinol in the plasma of healthy subjects)*

Take 100 mg twice a day.

If you are a new Ubiquinol user, I recommend taking a “loading dose” for the first two to three weeks. This will help you achieve rapid, optimal ubiquinol levels in your blood, tissues and organs.

For best absorption and utilization, take fat-soluble Ubiquinol with food. If you select more than one reason, choose to take the higher dosage.

I recommend dividing your daily amount into two doses: morning and afternoon.

Superhuman energy secret shocks reporters Discover how this long-hidden secret could help save you from that dog-tired, “getting older” feeling in just 29 days

In fact one world-renowned doctor used this discovery to create the ultimate “fountain of youth” formula.

His name is Dr. Mark Stengler, and his protocol can help you...

Feel YOUNGER and REVITALIZED...
Experience better energy levels throughout the day...
Recharge your muscles...
Keep your heart pumping strong...your blood flowing smoothly...and your mind working like a super-computer...
And much more.

Nature’s “rocket fuel” combination that adds power to every cell in your body...

Plus the incredible longevity nutrient that 60 Minutes called “the closest thing we’ve got to a real fountain of youth”...

And a powerful combination of antioxidants known as “the Fab Five,” to help keep your cells strong for life.

This youth-restoring formula is called RevitalizeQ Plus

Without it, your cells could die. Coenzyme Q10, and it works by helping your cells make energy, which is called ATP.

when your body’s low on CoQ10, you’ll feel it first in your hard-working muscles...including your heart. That’s what makes you exhausted down to your very core.

we have stacks of studies—literally stacks of them going back 56 years—showing that CoQ10 can do amazing things. You simply cannot make energy without it.

You need the “Coenzyme Combo.”

It’s a trio of coenzymes and nutrients to help you make, absorb and use CoQ10.

Think of it like super-absorbable rocket fuel that adds power to every cell in your body.

another coenzyme called PLP, a special form of vitamin B6.

Your body MUST HAVE PLP in order to make CoQ10.

But good luck finding it...Most supplement makers ignore this incredible fact! Dr. Stengler’s formula is the only one I know of that has both of these coenzymes.

BioPerine’s entire job is to help you absorb CoQ10. In fact, one study done by the manufacturers found that people who took BioPerine with CoQ10 had up to 32% more CoQ10 in their bloodstream than those who took CoQ10 alone.

Research shows that with each passing year, it gets harder for you to make CoQ10 and even harder to use it, too.

Statin drugs drain CoQ10 right out of your body...and can take your energy and strength with it.

Dr. Stengler added one more incredible breakthrough to his Coenzyme Combo: It’s an extract called resveratrol—and even if you’ve heard of it before, I guarantee you haven’t heard the whole shocking truth.

You see, the most popular way to get resveratrol is from red wine. ..you’d have to guzzle GALLONS of it every day to really make a difference in your genes.

to harness its rejuvenating power. It’s a pretty, flowering Japanese plant with an ugly name—knotweed.

Studies suggest that the resveratrol in knotweed is a powerful antidote to oxidative stress—which is key in helping to keep your heart strong and your cells healthy.

Resveratrol also may help boost circulation to the brain, to help you stay razor-sharp and on top of your game.

With RevitalizeQ Plus, you get the “everyday dose” of resveratrol that Dr. Stengler recommends—100 milligrams.

It’s the same amount you’d get from drinking up to 67 bottles of red wine. But in just two small capsules a day, it’s a lot more realistic!

With every dose, you also get a blend of age-fighting nutrients that he recommends to all of his patients.

Here at the office, we call it the “Fab Five” of free radical fighters. It includes...

Acai berry – a Brazilian “power fruit” and potential immune supporter
Grape seed – which may support free-flowing circulation and healthy blood vessels
Pomegranate – an antioxidant heavy-hitter that’s been shown to be more powerful than green tea
Quercetin – a flower extract that combats oxidation right down to the cellular level
And Turmeric – an ancient free radical fighter to help you defy aging in all key areas of your body

Patriot Power Greens

Patriot Power Greens Harvard School of Public Health Says Inflammation Could Be The Real Reason You’re Fat

Inflammation begins in your fat cells themselves. And as your fat mass expands, inflammation increases. What causes all of this?

Oxidative stress. As more glucose is delivered to your cells, they start to produce extra reactive oxygen species (ROS), which in turn causes inflammation within your cells.

According to the same Harvard study, this inflammation continues to snowball, which results in your body gaining more weight around your hips, midsection and any other place that fat easily accumulates.

And as long as this inflammation is simmering in your body, your chances of losing weight are not good… no matter how many miles you run or how many calories you eat…

So what’s the solution?

Flooding your starving cells with alkaline foods. These alkaline foods help to neutralize the inflammation that’s playing a role in causing you to gain weight.

Fruits and veggies are mother nature’s best form of “alkaline” foods. This is because they neutralize the excess acid and inflammation that’s contributing to your weight gain.

Instant Energy!

Spring Out of Bed Every Morning and Restore The Endless Energy You Had 20 Years Ago!

If you’re always drinking coffee or energy drinks to make it through the day, then your body is probably suffering from inflammation.

Walk into any doctor’s office and complain about low energy, fatigue or feeling tired every afternoon and your doctor will probably tell you that’s “just part of getting older”.

So what’s the real cause of fatigue and sluggishness?

New research has led many to believe the real cause is inflammation in your cells - specifically in the mitochondria of your cells.

The mitochondria act like a tiny “power plant” for your cells - telling your cells how to feel and giving them the energy they need.

But when your mitochondria are inflamed from stress or bad foods you quickly start to feel sluggish and worn-out.

You’ll start to feel more tired than usual getting out of bed in the morning. And you’ll notice yourself needing a mid-afternoon nap just to make it through the day…

So what’s the solution?

Flooding the mitochondria in your cells with the alkaline foods that they desperately need.

Fruits and vegetables such as APPLES, TOMATOES, BEETS, BLUEBERRIES, KALE AND CHERRIES ARE ALL HIGHLY ALKALINE foods that can help promote healthy levels of inflammation, giving you back the energy you used to have…

And if that’s not enough for you, you can actually give yourself even more energy with a high-powered probiotic like those in Patriot Power Greens.

So how does a probiotic give you more energy?

A probiotic with at least 8-10 different Bifido and Lacto strains will obviously help you improve your digestion. And when your digestion starts improving, your body will better absorb the nutrients you’re eating, which can give you the youthful energy you used to have...

You simply mix Patriot Power Greens in a glass with water, juice, or a smoothie - and you're done!

In each serving of Patriot Power Greens, you’re getting the health-boosting power of 40 fruits and vegetables, 10 strains of probiotics and 6 digestive enzymes.

Patriot Power Greens has only 15 calories per serving, no added sugar, no artificial sweeteners, it’s diabetic friendly, vegetarian friendly and also does not contain any major allergens.

And as a NEW update - we recently switched our fruits and vegetables in Patriot Power Greens to Organic.

But what might be even more important is not the ingredients we put in the drink, but the ingredients that we left out of the drink...

We Eliminated All Of The Major Allergens From Patriot Power Greens

No GMO’s, gluten, soy, dairy, wheat, nuts, eggs, fish, shellfish or anything like that is used in Patriot Power Greens.

Dr. Sebring also made sure that we eliminated all of the “fake health foods” that are found in many greens powders.

Many supplement companies like to “bulk up” their greens powders with cheap, highly processed foods like barley, soy and wheat grass.

Digestive Enzymes

8 SURPRISING REASONS TO TAKE DIGESTIVE ENZYMES Dr. Doni Wilson explains why proper digestion is so crucial to good health, and how digestive enzymes can help heal far more than digestive issues alone.

Patients come to me for help with all kinds of health issues, from fatigue, digestive issues, and anxiety, to restless sleep, fertility issues, and/or autoimmunity. Sometimes, I think that I must sound like a broken record because in any of these scenarios, one of the primary things I discuss with patients is…

GUT HEALTH.

Making sure you have good gut health is important, even if you don’t have digestive symptoms. When gut health becomes impaired, it usually means your body isn’t digesting food properly or fully.

Improper digestion can create a chain-reaction of imbalances in the body, which can create or exacerbate many seemingly unrelated health issues. That is why, when I see signs of impaired digestion in a patient, I often recommend they use digestive enzymes to give their body the support it needs to come back into balance.

What Health Issues Can Improve by Taking Digestive Enzymes?

1. Stress (emotional, mental, or physical)

2. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), bloating, gas, constipation, and/or diarrhea

3. Leaky gut, food sensitivities

4. Chronic fatigue, pain, fibromyalgia, migraines

5. Anxiety, low mood, sleep issues, memory changes, brain fog

6. Autoimmunity

7. MTHFR and methylation issues

8. PMS, abnormal pap, and/or fertility issues

Expert declares it “borders on medical malpractice” to recommend against this natural cancer treatment! Just be prepared for the potential side effects… healthier skin, eyes, and bones—to name a few.

In 1976, when a two-time Nobel Prize winner shared evidence of a natural “cure” for cancer, the mainstream laughed him off.

Never mind the fact that the terminal patients on this treatment lived over five times longer on average than those who didn’t get it. Or that some of those patients were completely cancer-free a few years later.

Instead, the Mayo Clinic set out to prove him wrong. And they did. They “proved” this therapy didn’t work any better than the placebo. Only problem? They didn’t actually replicate the original study. They didn’t even use the same treatment…or for the same amount of time. Which means the Mayo Clinic’s “proof” doesn’t actually prove anything.

Nevertheless, people forgot about the treatment. And one of the greatest discoveries in cancer research was written off as quackery.

That is, until recently…

Eventually news of this therapy trickled down to a Tulane University-educated physician. It uses one specific natural compound to fight a whole host of common infections–and cancer.

Unlike the so-called cures you’ve probably heard of, we think this method could be better. You see, chemo destroys both cancerous and healthy cells. But in laboratory studies this natural compound destroys cancer cells…and leaves healthy ones unharmed. And after over a decade of research and study, this doctor has concluded…

This regimen is “very safe” for cancer patients. And…it works. He says it so effective, that doctors who recommend against it are bordering on “medical malpractice!”

Now word of this practice is quietly spreading…

In fact, even though the FDA has yet to stamp its approval, chances are you’re within driving distance of a facility that offers it.

A well-respected Florida oncologist recently made his findings public at the University of Puerto Rico. He presented case studies of 40 patients with Stage 4 cancer who received this therapy. In 75 percent of the patients, tumors shrank by 50 percent—or more.

In Australia, one study noted that in people who received this nutrient for cancer and several other ailments, “the results have been spectacular, the only side effect is ‘chronic good health.’”

“Chronic good health.”

And this isn’t the only evidence to back it up. Not by a long shot.

Yet you won’t hear a peep about it from the mainstream. This natural cancer treatment makes sense…but it makes no profit.

So how is it possible that a natural compound—one so common you might not even believe it—could destroy cancer so efficiently? And, unlike chemotherapy, without hurting any healthy cells?

I’ll explain in a moment.

But let me start by sharing with you several success stories we’ve uncovered while researching this therapy...

“Controversial” Treatment Bringing People
Back from the Brink of Death

Arlindo Olivera had Stage 4 lung cancer. He was just 59 years old. And not much time left, if his doctors were to be believed. It’s a good thing he didn’t listen. After completing his course of treatment, he was cancer-free. But it wasn’t chemo or radiation that saved him. Instead, he turned to this natural treatment. It costs a fraction of conventional therapies…It’s been confirmed by numerous scientists and experts. People who have received this therapy report that it has no toxic or unusual side effects. But the mainstream still refuses to embrace it. Carol R, a retired schoolteacher, is probably glad she did choose to embrace it. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Conventional treatments scared her. So she went to a specialized health facility in Wichita, Kansas for this therapy. Now she says, “Not only is the cancer gone from the inside, everything has improved...head to toe...skin, nails, hair, teeth, eyes...everything. I feel stronger than I did 20 years ago–which is amazing because I thought I was healthy then!” I’m sure Dennis Vaughan of the UK would agree. He too was wary of mainstream methods after his PSA score leapt from 13 to 18.5. But luckily his regular doctor was one of the few to offer this protocol. So Dennis went every week and as he explained, “It’s a very easy treatment… There’s no discomfort and afterwards you feel fine.”

Even better? In less than 2 months, his PSA dropped back to 13. At the time his story was reported, his oncologist said he didn’t need to come back until next year. And then there’s the man in Auckland, NZ—Allan Smith—who slipped into a coma, suffering from both pneumonia and leukemia. His family had to fight the hospital to get him this treatment. And thank goodness they did. Just eleven weeks after receiving it, he walked out of the hospital—both pneumonia and leukemia-free. Locally he’s known as a “miracle man.” But the Tulane University physician I mentioned earlier explains, “It’s no miracle. It’s hard science.” But how does it work? The latest research suggests that this compound destroys a unique pro­tein in cancer cells. It’s the protein that helps cancer cells survive. It lets those cells build new blood vessels so they can keep growing. And it is activated by energy from free radicals. But when antioxidants neutralize the free radicals, this “cancer protein” no longer works. This stops the tumor in its tracks. Researchers found that the protein was abundant in untreated cancer cells. But it completely disappeared in cancer cells treated with this nutrient. You’d think a breakthrough like this would make its way to the front page of The New York Times or be a huge story on ABC News. Unfortunately, that just isn’t the case. What’s worse, this isn’t the only promising, natural cancer treatment they’re keeping from you…

For instance, there is a compound in one common fruit that seeks out cancer and destroys it. Dozens of studies have shown that when this substance is turned loose, it results in massive cancer cell death! One animal study reported that it prevented the spread of colon cancer cells to the liver by 100%. Then there’s an “immune stimulator” that can supercharge your body’s own defenses. You can easily find it in hundreds of clinics throughout Asia. It is highly effective for ramping up the immune system against cancer. In fact, it works so well that it is one of the leading complementary and alternative cancer therapies in Japan. And it might be hard to believe from what you know about traditional cancer treatments, but there is one natural cure that is not only deadly to cancer…it is safer than a piece of bread. It’s already been used in over 100 laboratory studies and human trials and may enhance the effectiveness of chemo drugs. And that’s just for starters.

What Other Life-Saving Secrets are “They” Keeping from You?

So far I’ve mentioned just a few natural cures for cancer that can help wipe it out naturally. But there are plenty more. On top of that, all of these cures and treatments are secrets that are hiding in plain sight. You have probably never heard of them, but they’re readily available. Every single one of them is backed by science. But Big Pharma would like to keep them quiet. Well, it’s time for that to change. My name is Angela Salerno. I’m the President of The Institute for Natural Healing.

Our investigation into hundreds of little-known cures led to a realization that the most effective health solutions—like this cancer treatment—are intentionally and systematically hidden from public view. So we pulled the most successful studies and consulted with researchers connected to the most prominent doctors and scientists. And we produced our own special report. We called it Extreme Healing: Seven Weapons to Wipe Out Cancer—Naturally. It normally sells for $24.95. But in a moment, I’ll show you how to get it for free.

This eye-opening report will tell you everything you need to know about the treatment I mentioned that cured a man from Stage 4 lung cancer. Another from pneumonia and leukemia. And a woman from breast cancer. We’ll even give you the contact information to consult with one of the world’s leading experts in this protocol. And that’s just one part of what you’ll discover. This report dispels all of the common—and dangerous—myths about cancer. More important, it gives you effective ways to fight—or prevent—it by addressing the cause, not just the symptoms. We’ve uncovered everything you need to know right now:

Simple ways to reduce your risk of getting cancer.

Seven breakthrough, natural treatments that allow your body to fight cancer at its source.

Plus you’ll discover how to simply incorporate these methods into your life. It’s easier—and cheaper—than you think.

5 Things You MUST Know About Cancer Right Away

The American Cancer Society has made their yearly prediction: more than 1.6 million new diagnosed cancer cases. That makes cancer the second most common cause of death in the U.S. It’s scary. But you don’t have to be one of the statistics. In the Extreme Healing report, you will find five vital ways to help protect yourself. You’ll discover:

What our ancestors never had to worry about—but you do. Find out how making different choices on your next shopping trip can help you dodge cancer like cavemen did.

The surprising "cancer-preventer" and the simple way (that most doctors say is bad for you) to get more of it. You may not get enough of this nutrient, depending on where you live. And that’s very bad news. If your levels are low, you’re at risk. One study found that those with the lowest levels on this nutrient increased their risk for a certain type of aggressive cancer by almost 500 percent. Discover what you can do about it.

A dietary ratio that when balanced, helps keep you healthy. But when it’s off, it promotes inflammation, which may stimulate cancer to grow. It’s easy to tip this ratio back in your favor. We show you how.

The one thing in your diet that research suggests fuels cancer like throwing gasoline on a flame. Learn how to tame that fire to extinguish one of cancer’s main energy sources.

How to create an environment in your body that some experts say makes it difficult for cancer to exist—and the one must-have device you need to make it happen.

You won’t hear this kind of stuff from your doctor or oncologist. But don’t blame him. His hands are tied. He could even lose his license for recommending these safe, inexpensive alternatives to toxic cancer drugs! But here’s the thing… We have no financial interests in any of the cures or preventive methods we discovered. We don’t get any kind of compensation for recommending them to you. However, we give you all the research, all the results, and all the details on how to use them yourself.

The Shocking Truth About Chemotherapy

Now let me ask… When it comes to treatment choices, where do you turn for the real truth about cancer therapies…chemo and radiation…side effects and secondary outcomes? For instance… Ralph Moss, a well-known researcher of natural cancer cures, reports that a prominent oncologist at the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York told his colleagues, “Do anything you want—but no chemotherapy!” when he discovered he had advanced stage cancer. And why would Dr. Otis Brawley, Chief Medical Officer for the American Cancer Society, call chemotherapy a “double-edged sword?” Can it be that the cure is worse than the disease? You’ll find out on page six of Extreme Healing: Seven Weapons to Wipe Out Cancer—Naturally. And just how effective are these mainstream treatments? Are you being deceived by numbers that have been “rigged” to be more hopeful than they really are? Get the answer on page five. Also, did you know that most tumors are not deadly in themselves? It’s true, even when they expand and grow. But we tell you on page seven just when cancer actually becomes dangerous—and natural ways to combat it before it does. And that’s not all. The cures we have uncovered don’t even necessarily have to be “alternatives.” If you have cancer and have decided on chemo or radiation, these treatments can be used along with conventional methods. They can even help reduce some of the side effects.

The “Teflon” Secret to Defeating Cancer

Here’s the thing… These natural cures don’t just mask the symptoms of cancer…they address the cause and help your body overcome and eliminate it at the source. Ever wonder how cancer cells spread like they do? Well, it's partly because they are very "sticky." That's how they manage to clump together and grow into tumors. So what if you could make them "un-sticky"? What if they were more like Teflon and couldn't cling to each other? That's exactly what researchers have studied. Because when cancer cells can't stick together they have nowhere to go. And without new blood vessels to bind to, they can't survive, let alone spread. Soon they die from lack of nourishment. But there’s something most people—heck, most DOCTORS—don’t even realize… You can help make this happen! There is a natural compound that actually interrupts the binding process of cancer cells. The early results are promising. Very promising. One mouse study published by the Journal of Natural Cancer Institute showed that this substance reduced the spread of melanoma by 90 percent! And scientists have already tested it on humans. That’s huge. You’ll find all the details in Extreme Healing: Seven Weapons to Wipe Out Cancer—Naturally. We even tell you where to purchase this safe and highly effective substance for yourself. And again, we’re offering this report for free. Keep reading to learn how to claim your copy.

And remember, this is just one of the natural cures you’ll discover.

Your Body’s #1 Defense Against Cancer Is…

There's a smart way to fight cancer—and it is not by cutting it out, burning it out, or poisoning yourself hoping that the cancer dies before you do. No, the smart way to fight cancer is to separate the good cells from the bad. No chemo drug can do that. But your own immune system can. It’s always your first line of defense. So anything you can do to strengthen it will guard against invaders like rogue cancer cells. That’s why we’ve included a treatment that could not be simpler. Hundreds of cancer clinics throughout Asia already use it. In fact, it is one of the top alternative cancer therapies in Japan. You'll be amazed at how this powerful substance ramps up your body's army of immune cells. It has been shown to increase natural killer cell activity by as much as 900 percent! In our report, we'll not only tell you the name of this supplement—we'll tell you what the recommended therapeutic dose is and how you need to take it. Because it’s important that you take a specific type of this product—and even more important that you take the right dose. That’s why our research team has recommended the only brand that met our high standards. At one time it was not widely available in the U.S. But we found an American distributor. So we tell you the exact name of the company and the brand name of the product. That’s on page 11. We get no compensation for recommending it. It’s simply the best product we’ve uncovered. And it would be irresponsible not to report on it.

And still there’s more…

The Food EVERY Man Needs to Eat for Ultimate Protection

This therapy specifically fights and prevents prostate cancer. And as everyone knows by now, if a man lives long enough, he will probably develop it. Almost all men over the age of 90 have cancerous cells in the prostate. Autopsy studies prove it. The good news? Most men who have prostate cancer don't die from it, especially if they get it later in life. But if you get it when you’re younger, it’s far more serious. And it leads to truly terrifying treatment options. They can leave you incontinent or impotent… No man wants to face that. But Dr. Alan Pantuck, director of cancer research at UCLA, uses a natural food to slow down increases in PSA levels. He recently did a study on 50 men who had prostate cancer and who had gotten surgery or radiation—but PSA tests showed these men still had active cancer. All of the men took Dr. Pantuck's natural remedy—which they were able to buy at their local grocery store. And the results were amazing... Normally, if a man has prostate cancer, it only takes just over a year for a man’s PSA score to double. But for 82 percent of the men in this study, their PSA score didn't double for more than FOUR years. You'll find out what this easily available—and delicious—food is on page 15 of our breakthrough report. Here’s another one…

The Cancer Fighter You Might be Throwing Away

And this one’s important. Because you need to know about it before you potentially throw it in the garbage. There’s one food item—a known cancer fighter—that you most likely always throw away. It contains a compound that can destroy cancer cells from within. The human and laboratory study results on this compound are astonishing. It...

Reduced tumor development by 500 percent.

Cut risk of skin cancer by up to 30 percent.

And when combined with another natural food that is probably already in your pantry (which we’ll also tell you about)—reduced the risk of a certain type of skin cancer by a whopping 70 percent!

But there are two things you need to know to use this natural kitchen ingredient to fight cancer: how to buy it...and the simple kitchen tool (less than $10) you'll need to use it. And you’ll find the answers to these questions, and so many more, in our Extreme Healing report.

The Most Extensive, Effective Research Available Today

Listen. I get it. Cancer is a scary thing. But as frightening as it is, it’s a part of our reality. That’s why it is absolutely critical that we use these natural cures and preventives in our everyday lives. There’s no way you can afford to miss out on Extreme Healing: Seven Weapons to Wipe Out Cancer—Naturally. It is by far the most extensive report we’ve made available today on natural methods to fight or prevent cancer. Find out what no traditional oncologist will tell you or your family if you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer. Discover the simple, but effective, natural methods that could be the answer to eliminating cancer from your life for good.

Information that Could Literally
Save Your Life… or a Loved One

Do you want to do everything in your power to stay healthy? Do you have a frightening family history of cancer? Do you have cancer yourself…or maybe a friend or family member who has received the dreaded diagnosis? What would it be worth to those friends, family, and yourself if you had information that could help? If you actually have the information at your fingertips to take charge of your own health? It would be priceless, of course. And yet that is exactly what you'll find in this report. Best of all? You don't have to pay a fortune for this cutting-edge research and advice. Like I said, this report normally sells for $24.95. Even at that low price it’s a steal. But if you respond to this special offer today, it can be yours free. And let me be clear… This is the only way to get it free. Everyone else pays. All I ask is that in return you try a subscription to Independent Healing. Independent Healing is unique among health publications. We are private, so we don't have to bow to government interference. We are subscription based, so advertisers don't influence us. And we are unbiased. The truth is, you can live a longer, healthier, happier life. And, more often than not, you have the power to do it all on your own. That’s because natural CURES do exist for everything from cancer… to arthritis… to depression… chronic pain… heart disease… ADHD… on and on. Take diabetes, for example.

I mean, how many diabetics are completely dependent on insulin injections every day, sometimes several times a day, just to survive? And it’s only getting worse. Even the New York Times agrees...

"Within a generation or so, doctors fear, a huge wave of new cases could overwhelm the public health system and engulf growing numbers of the young, creating a city where hospitals are swamped by the disease's handiwork, schools scramble for resources as they accommodate diabetic children, and the work force abounds with the blind..."

But don’t worry. That does not have to include you. I'd like to show you a way to gain total control over diabetes and never fear a blood sugar spike or crash again. Fact is, the American Diabetes Association is operating on highly questionable information. Too many of the therapies these organizations recommend are based on flawed or outdated science. And too many doctors force-feed these recommendations to their patients. But you don't need to scour medical journals (as we have) to know that. Ask any doctor who knows better and he’ll tell you. Insulin doesn't cure diabetes. In fact, one doctor has made a convincing case that the ADA protocol is making diabetes worse. Certainly their bad advice about nutrition has at least in part led to an unnecessary and widespread plague of Type II diabetes – the type of diabetes that many healthy people get in middle age. But our research team has discovered a safe and natural cure for diabetes. It comes from a doctor who has studied this condition for over 40 years. As a type 1 diabetic, he was his own, first test subject. It’s thanks to his pioneering work that the practice of self-monitoring blood sugar is used by diabetics around the world. To date he's published six books on the subject and numerous articles. He says if you're a Type I diabetic, you could drastically reduce your dependence on insulin (like he did for himself). And some Type II diabetics can get off medication for good. People from all over the world have had life-changing success with his program. Many of them leave inspiring testimonials and thank you notes on the doctor’s website.

Like Mandy Rodrigues from North Wales. She said,

"How does one begin to thank someone for saving their life? I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes in January 2002... following your regime my blood glucose levels have dropped to 6.4 - 7.1... I fully expect my BG levels to fall further over the coming weeks (after all, I have only been on the regime for 11 days)!"

And Pamela Nordick, who wrote,

"I've never been in such tight control of my blood sugars. I haven't been this thin since before being diagnosed. Thank you... for sharing your wisdom with us. I honestly think I might not be here today, if I hadn't found such success..."

We've prepared a report with the most essential information about this breakthrough plan for reversing diabetes. You can do it all on your own. In this report – called Cure Diabetes in 3 Weeks: What the ADA Won’t Tell You –you'll discover:

Why listening to the advice of the American Diabetes Association guarantees that you never totally manage your diabetes. This "conventional wisdom" among diabetics likely leads to more drug use and complications than any other mainstream advice.

Why following the "6-12-12" rule could completely eliminate the insulin roller coaster and keep your blood sugar in a healthy range. Even after meals or when you don't have time for a snack.

How following a few simple guidelines could prevent eye problems, frozen shoulders, inflamed legs, kidney problems, and other diabetes-related complications.

And again, I’d like to send this report to you absolutely free. It's this type of in-depth, behind-the-scenes reporting we bring to each monthly issue of Independent Healing. If you aren't a full member of The Institute for Natural Healing community, you may be wondering what we’re all about. As president, I know first-hand that good health may be our most precious commodity. Because I used to take mine for granted. Years ago, following a stressful period, I found myself underweight, anemic, sick all the time, bruised…and I was a smoker. As you can imagine, I barely had any energy. It was tough just getting out of bed in the morning. In May of 2007 I found myself in the ER with acute bronchitis…for the second time that year. That’s when I knew things had to change. So I decided to take my health back into my own hands. I flushed my unfinished cigarettes down the toilet the minute I got home from the hospital. (Proud to say, I never went back.) I got myself a gym membership and pledged to stick with it. I started researching nutrition and natural healing. I cut out (most of) the junk. I added new vegetables. I started taking supplements. Seven years later, and you’d never guess that frail, sick woman was me. And here’s the thing…not only did my energy return—my entire life improved. My outlook changed. Good things started happening to me and have just kept on happening. Because the bottom line is…

Good health can—and will—change your life.

It’s a message we spread among our community here and one I’d like us all to spread to our families and loved ones. You can live a longer, healthier, happier life. And, more often than not, you have the power to do it all on your own. Without doctors. Without drugs. But to make it happen, you do need access to the right research. And that’s where our publication Independent Healing comes in. Our network consists of doctors and scientists across the globe—true pioneers in natural medicine. The INH research team dissects the studies, conducts the interviews, and cuts through the nonsense to deliver real, science-backed natural solutions to our members every single month. Today our publication quietly circulates among a small circle of about 47,000 people. One member, Michael A. of Topeka, Kansas told us, “You are people who make a difference in our life. You give us the background of your work, how it has started and your discoveries as you go. Your articles and the references are absolutely fantastic and worth of credibility. Your knowledge, experience and passion in the field for people brought us to trust you. When it is coming from your team we know it's worth it.” And Rick P. from Tampa, Florida who reported, "Love the publication and the constant stream of helpful information. I put one suggestion to use and it has made a BIG - and positive - change to my health.” The mainstream media simply can't cover the latest medical stories as thoroughly and unbiased as we do. They would lose hundreds of millions of dollars in pharmaceutical advertising every year. They just aren’t willing to part with that kind of money. Because we're outside the influence of the medical establishment, no one can control what we tell you.

Whether we’re blowing the lid off cancer cures you won’t discover anywhere else... overlooked treatments for diabetes… or the true story behind heart disease. For example, you may be shocked to learn that: 75% of heart attack patients have normal cholesterol! That’s right. Cholesterol isn’t the problem. A national study by UCLA medical school showed that only 25% of hospitalized heart attack patients had high risk cholesterol levels! So if cholesterol isn’t the problem, why hasn’t anyone told you that? Perhaps it’s because the U.S. pharmaceutical industry makes $25 billion dollars every year selling cholesterol-lowering drugs. That in itself is bad enough. But what is worse is that most popular cholesterol-lowering drugs are dangerous. Recent studies suggest that many of them may lead to diabetes which increases your risk for heart disease--the very disease they are supposed to prevent! It’s outrageous. But it’s not all bad news… A group of forward-thinking doctors have been working to find real solutions to heart disease – solutions that repair the actual cause of it. One of these doctors is a New England-based physician. And he uncovered a nutrient solution that could save your life!

Let me tell you the true story of one of his patients…

An Amazing Recovery From Heart Disease

Mary was 79. She had congestive heart failure. When she was admitted to a community hospital near her home in Connecticut she was in a coma. She couldn’t even breathe on her own. Doctors told her son Bob that he should “pull the plug.” He didn’t listen. Instead Bob reached out to every cardiologist he could find. Finally he found the doctor who came up with this surprising solution. After just three days, Mary came out of her coma… Within 10 days, she was off the ventilator… On day 14 she was sitting upright in a wheelchair, using only supplemental oxygen… Pretty soon after that she was back in the comfort of her own home – baking, cleaning, even rearranging her collection of 3,000 books. All on her own. It sounds like nothing short of divine intervention, I know. But the most amazing part of the story is that this doctor cured Mary using a single, natural nutrient! Stop and think: if one nutrient pulled a 79-year-old woman from the brink of death, imagine what it can do for you.

Of course you don’t have to imagine. You could begin using this miracle compound today to help keep your heart pumping strong for years to come. And it’s all thanks to this courageous doctor who actually found not one, but four heart boosters. Ones that restore energy, reverse heart disease, and give his patients a second chance at living their best lives.

In fact, he says many of them who were awaiting heart transplants actually took themselves off the list and went back to a normal, active lifestyle!

And before too long, another forward-thinking physician followed the same course of treatment for his patients. And he was stunned. The number of patients that returned to him for heart problems dropped – to almost zero! Again, you may be wondering why you haven’t heard about this remarkable solution. And I’d have to repeat the answer: Because the mainstream medical community makes more money by keeping you in the dark. The truth is this: treating a sick heart with drugs doesn’t cure heart disease. You just continue to suffer the symptoms for years and years. Meanwhile the huge cost of your medications makes Big Pharma richer and richer.

Reclaim Your Healthy Heart with
These Four Amazing Micronutrients

What this pioneering cardiologist developed is a safe and simple natural solution that can halt heart disease in its tracks. More important, it can give you back the energy and vitality of a healthy heart. This four-nutrient “cocktail” goes to work immediately, fueling and protecting your heart – and your entire body.

Micronutrient #1 – Providing the Spark: This vitamin-like compound is absolutely crucial for heart health. There’s just one huge problem… your body slows down making it after age 40. It’s no coincidence your risk for heart disease increases exponentially right about that time too. If you’re already on prescription meds for your heart, this is one supplement you’ll want to consider adding to your diet immediately. We’ll tell you why.

Micronutrient #2 – Turning Fat into Fuel: This probably goes against everything you’ve heard about keeping your heart healthy. But red meat could help you fight heart disease! That’s right. There’s an important nutrient found in red meat and dairy. And this compound actually turns fat into fuel to help keep your heart beating 60 to 100 times every minute. It may also help keep blood vessels open. With better blood flow, oxygen gets delivered to the heart. And a good oxygen supply allows the heart to work more efficiently.

Micronutrient #3 – Sweetness in Action: Chances are, you haven’t even heard of this nutrient… yet. But I don’t expect it to stay quiet for long. I mean, who would have thought that sugar of any kind could be good for your heart? It is. But I’m not just talking about any sugar. This one is produced by the body and naturally boosts muscle energy.

Micronutrient #4 – The Rescue Mineral: Every organ in the body – especially the heart – needs this mineral. But the body doesn’t make it naturally. And that’s too bad. Because it helps relax blood vessels, which leads to healthy blood pressure. Discover what it is and – just as important – the two everyday foods that could be draining your body of this important nutrient.

Each of the four nutrients offers tremendous benefits. But combined? They have an even more powerful effect. One that can return you to a healthful, energized, and active lifestyle. This is all detailed in the report I want to send you. It’s called A Breakthrough in the Treatment of Heart Disease. It explains Mary’s cure and details everything you need to know about these miracle nutrients. This is exactly the kind of “off-the-grid” research and insight you can expect from our team. And you can discover all of these breakthrough cures and find out where they're available today.

In order to protect your eyesight, we started the OcuXanthin formula with lutein and zeaxanthin, 2 of the primary nutrients in the core of your eye, the macula. These vision supplements protect against UV damage and keep your eyes in good working order.

Then, since the goal of OcuXanthin is to both maintain vision, and protect your eyes, we chose an ingredient that does both – astaxanthin. This powerful antioxidant targets the oxidative stress that is harmful specifically to eyes, and protects your retina from sun damage. And it also protects your vision, by guarding against the eyestrain that can come from overuse and focusing on the fine details. Which would be enough, but it’s still not all astaxnthin does. Because this one eye supplement also plays a role in distance vision. Your eyes focus differently when they switch from near to far – and astaxanthin helps them make that switch smoothly, so you see it all and everything in between.

Finally, we completed the OcuXanthin formula with hyaluronic acid. Consider this your body’s shock absorber. It’s what helps keep your eyes lubricated, and gives them just enough cushion for them to bounce back after compression. Just as importantly, it acts as a barrier, keeping your eyes protected. Finally, hyaluronic acid is the delivery system for the nutrients your eyes need to stay healthy.

It’s everything you need in a single supplement.

Protection. Defense. Nutrition. You don’t have to choose between vision supplements and eye supplements any longer. Now, there’s Ocuxanthin.

Senior eyesight loss V transcript

Turns out certain household items are secretly emitting a form of low-level radiation – that’s right, I said radiation -- that “burns out” the cells in our eyes that allow us to see.

This story still hasn’t made it to mainstream news… yet.

My name is Dr. Allan Spreen. I’ve been a medical doctor for well over 30 years now.

That gives me a unique perspective on the sudden spike in age-related vision problems.

I hear so many complaints about dim, fading vision, “floaters,” dark spots, poor night vision, and trouble reading small print…

Because the vision-robbing radiation we’re talking about comes from a source you might never expect…

Your TV.

And your computer. And your laptop… your cell phone… even those new “curly-cue” fluorescent light bulbs…

You see, the American Macular Degeneration Foundation has revealed something truly shocking: our modern electronics pump out huge amounts of a type of radiation called High-Energy Visible Light, or HVL.

And HVL “burns out” your retinal cells – exactly the same way sunlight burns the cells on your skin.

Because there IS a way to help protect your retinal cells from HVL damage… and start to REVERSE the age-related vision loss you already have.

See, carrots are rich in nutrients called carotenoids – that’s where they get their name.

And carotenoids ARE nature’s answer to damaging blue light.

They absorb the energy from blue light waves and keep your eye cells from burning out.

Almost like sunscreen for your eyes.

There are 2 very special carotenoids that seem like they were designed to help protect and strengthen your eyesight. And they’re MUCH more powerful than the ones you get from vegetables.

Their molecular structure, which is unique in all of nature, lets them filter out the frequencies of light that damage your eyes.

And because they’re the only carotenoids found in your eyes – without them you’d have ZERO protection.

Lutein

Luckily, scientists in Washington DC discovered another source.

It’s a plant – but probably not one you eat on a regular basis, either.

I’m talking about Marigold flowers.

But when it comes to Lutein and Zeaxanthin in particular, turns out Marigolds are just bursting with these eye-saving nutrients.

Once scientists extracted the Lutein and Zeaxanthin form Marigold flowers, they were able to put them to the test in real people suffering with age-related vision loss.

And the evidence is clear…

These two nutrients can slash your risk of age-related vision loss by a full 82%!

In short, taking Lutein and Zeaxanthin improves just about every measure of your visual health…

Because my research into the vision loss epidemic yielded 2 more breakthroughs I believe no vision formula is complete without…

The first is another carotenoid nutrient called astaxanthin. It comes from a special form of red algae.

Now, maybe you’re wondering – why add another carotenoid nutrient, when you already have Lutein and Zeaxanthin?

Great question.

The answer is that astaxanthin is very similar to Lutein and Zeaxanthin – but it’s even MORE potent.

And the early vision research tells me it’s the “next big thing” in eye protection. In fact, I have no doubt that it’ll soon be mentioned right along with Lutein and Zeaxanthin in all the latest research.

I can’t help but believe that if the folks in the clinical trials had gotten a few milligrams of Astaxanthin along with Lutein and Zeaxanthin, their results would have been even more life changing…

And remember, this is more than just protection against future age-related vision loss. These nutrients are so potent, they can actually help relieve some of the “burnout” that’s already affecting your eyes.

So even if you’re already getting a little blurry… even if your eyes get tired and watery when you watch TV for a long time… even if you feel like your vision is already starting to fade…

And even if your eye doctor has already diagnosed you with Age Related MACULAR DEGENERATION…

This formula has everything you need for the healthiest eyes of your life. Eyes that get MEASURABLY better and better with each passing day!

In fact, without HA, eventually your eyes would be FULL of dark spots… and before long your eyeballs themselves could lose their shape and start to shrivel up like raisins in the sun.

Now, to be clear, there haven’t yet been any formal studies on HA and vision. But to me it’s as plain as the nose on my face... In fact, it’s so important, I believe it makes no sense at all to produce a vision supplement without HA.

That’s why I included 50 mg of pure HA – the recommended daily amount – in each dose of OcuXanthin.

To my knowledge, OcuXanthin is the ONLY formula on the market to include this critical nutrient – along with ALL the carotenoids to help shield your eyes from HVL damage.

And don’t worry -- we fit it all into one easy-to-swallow softgel per day! So you don’t have to worry about choking down a handful of pills. Just one and you’re done!

Because OcuXanthin is backed not with a regular money back guarantee -- but NorthStar Nutritionals Gold Standard Guarantee.

It’s our unconditional 100% satisfaction promise to you. It means that if at any time, for any reason whatsoever, you don’t feel like OcuXanthin has exceeded your expectations… if you don’t notice the clarity and brightness of your vision… if you don’t see the difference when you’re driving, reading, playing cards, or writing a letter…

If you don’t agree this is the most effective vision formula you’ve ever tried…

You get back every penny of the purchase price.

Plus…A full dose of pure Hyaluronic Acid to support the clear, gel-like fluid in your eyes…

And even better – through this presentation, you can try OcuXanthin without paying a cent for shipping.

Vital Screen 360

REVEALED: U.S. Government Cover-Up! Over 278 Million Americans Exposed in Nationwide Radiation Crisis

Urgent Alert: The U.S. Government may have intentionally and knowingly suppressed vital health information that could save millions of Americans.

Already, over 232 leading-scientists — including experts from various fields out of institutions like Harvard Medical School and Johns Hopkins University — have issued a dire warning…

At this moment, a wave of toxic radiation is spreading across the country…

Coming from even the most common sources you encounter every day...

And the threat is escalating by the minute…

DO NOT IGNORE THIS ALERT!

This radiation strikes your body constantly…

It goes right through your skin…

Penetrating your cell membranes, and causing unwanted oxidative damage that can affect your heart, your lungs, your kidneys, your eyes, and even your brain.

And here’s the part that will make your blood boil:

The same government officials paid to protect you... have been hiding this toxic radiation threat.

For years, the U.S. Government has allowed YOU to walk right out your front door… and into an invisible ocean of toxic radiation.

And they didn’t say a word.

I’m talking about the EPA!

They say the evidence is “inconclusive”…

Heck, another government branch only released it after a Superior Court judge ordered them to do so…

We’re talking about government betrayal of the highest order…

The threat has gotten so severe that over 232 scientists — including scientists from Harvard Medical School, Johns Hopkins, and Columbia University — have confirmed a DIRE WARNING!

They even sent the warning to the U.N., as well as the World Health Organization!

Demanding that the public be informed about the “potential health risks” and given “harm reduction strategies”.

It’s a NEW PHENOMENON that could make the x-ray machine at your doctor’s office seem about as threatening as a toy water-pistol.

Not only is this a new type of radiation, but there’s so much more of it than ever before.

And here’s the thing: Not only does radiation contain low-energy UV rays…

But it is also packing high-frequency gamma-rays…

Now, gamma-rays are generated by radioactive atoms.

They have the highest frequency of any form of radiation…

And the most energy...

Consequently, they are capable of causing OXIDATIVE DAMAGE to your entire body, including your heart, lungs, eyes, and brain...

The PENETRATING POWER is absolutely staggering…


In fact, these Gamma Rays can cut through several inches of concrete…

Travel right through protective clothing…

The effects are unlike anything you could ever imagine…

You see, when radiation hits your body…

The impact is so powerful, it knocks electrons loose from your atoms, creating an army of hostile “free radicals”…

And here’s the thing: when these free radicals lose an electron, they go on a rampage, attacking nearby cells in an effort to steal electrons.

This causes an intense chain-reaction that rips across your body like a tornado...

In fact, free radicals bombard your cellular-membranes with over 8 billion strikes per second.

Now, this causes what’s known as “oxidative damage” to every cell in your body.

That means, your cells are slowly corroding!

...

This oxidative damage is happening from head to toe, including your heart… your lungs… your kidneys… your eyes… and even your brain.

All day. Every day!

It’s like stepping into a MICROWAVE…

And even though you don’t notice the effects, the impact is devastating.

Imagine a fresh young banana…

Still firm and a tad green…

But pop it in the microwave for even just 15 seconds… and the damage is astounding.

Of course, you don’t see a change. The skin is still yellow and intact.

~

But open the banana, and its INSIDES ARE TURNED TO MUSH…

And that’s after just 15 seconds.

Of course, microwaves involve intense heat, so day-to-day radiation isn’t quite the same.

But the bottom line is…

Your body is under a relentless assault… all day long!

I guess like they say, “Getting old ain’t for sissies.”

I get it…

But what if all of your ailments, all of your health worries, were in part due to this IMMEDIATE and DANGEROUS radiation cloud we’ve been living in our entire lives?

And what if I told you this radiation cloud was even making them worse?

This radiation disaster has emerged as one of the SINGLE GREATEST THREATS facing our generation.

....

I’ll tell you why greedy billion-dollar conglomerates are determined to let the threat run wild…

Most important, I’ll give you my complete 3-step protection plan you can use to help protect yourself against everyday radiation’s harmful effects…

My name is Dr. Allan Spreen, MD…

I’m from Johnson City, Tennessee... just about 15 miles south of Gate City, Kentucky.

Now, I’ve been a medical doctor for over 30 years.

I’ve NEVER-EVER — seen a toxic threat of this magnitude.

In fact, it’s so dangerous that Dr. Martin Blank, a radiation expert from Columbia University, says:

“I am here to tell you — we have created something that is harming us, and it is getting out of control!”

Consequently, I’ve made it my personal mission to ALERT INNOCENT AMERICANS to this escalating crisis…

This is a government betrayal that you can’t ignore, and you must take immediate action to start protecting yourself and your loved ones.

This new radiation threat takes it to a whole new level.

Because it’s EVERYWHERE…

First of all, you’ve got the sun, shooting radiation down through a deteriorating ozone layer that no longer completely shields us.

Second, you’ve got the Earth’s thermal core, shooting a bit of radiation up through a slowly eroding crust.

And third, you’ve got the worst part… the part that my folks could never have imagined in a million years…

The part the Government’s been hiding…

You see, in just the last 30 years…

The number of radiation-generating wireless devices has grown from ZERO to 7.2 billion…

A 370-million-fold increase!

It’s impossible to fathom…

And here’s the thing…

With all of those tweets and texts going around… and especially with every one of those calls… a dose of radiation is emitted…

Even if you don’t use a cell phone or wireless device, you can still be at risk.

It’s like second-hand smoke… everyone in the room is affected, even if you don’t smoke.


This stuff comes right through the ceiling… the walls… right through your clothes…

And radiation is capable of causing oxidative damage to every cell in your body.

Again, it’s as if you are rusting from the inside out: Your heart, your lungs, your kidneys, your eyes, and even your brain.

You saw what microwaves can do to a banana, right?

And once inside your body, it can ignite a blistering chain-reaction that strikes your cell membranes 8 billion times per second.

You see, the effects of radiation are an underlying cause of why you’re feeling worn out, and achy some of the time.

But don’t wait for the Government to do anything to help you…

They’ve been hiding it from you and have no interest in stopping the threat.

WHY?

One word: GREED…

That’s right…

You see, the Wireless Industry is very, very powerful… and very well-funded…

You know who I’m talking about. The technology companies, the makers of all those Smart Phones, and wifi-routers, and network amplifiers, and radio towers…

Listen: We are talking about a $5.1 trillion industry with deep ties to the FCC, the EPA, and the cowards in Congress.

And radiation is always there, 24/7…

While a suit of armor would certainly be effective, it’s a little extreme.

That’s why you need an internal solution…

A way to help BLOCK… FLUSH… and even REVERSE the effects of radiation’s 360-degree assault…

That’s right, we’ve developed a potent “Block-Flush-Reverse” protection-strategy that will help protect you against the effects of everyday radiation.

And it all starts with a remarkable substance called Alpha Lipoic Acid, or Alpha-A for short…

In fact, it was isolated back in 1951 when biochemist Lester Reed found traces of Alpha-A in liver tissue.

Further investigations showed the Alpha-A is actually produced by the human body, and can be found in every single one of your cells.

Alpha-A has a unique molecular structure — unlike anything else in the Universe.

Consequently, animal studies show it can help protect every cell in the body against the effects of radiation.

In short, it is the BLOCK in our Block-Flush-Reverse defense strategy.

But here’s the thing…

As we get older, it’s believed that our body slows its production of Alpha-A…

Now, if you’re particularly well-schooled on health matters, you may know that free radicals cause oxidative damage to our cells…

What you may not know is that free radicals bombard our cellular membranes with over 8 billion strikes per second.

It’s a relentless assault. And it rips through our bodies like a tornado.

Now, as you may know, the way to protect yourself against a vicious free radical attack is with antioxidants.

That’s because antioxidants can help neutralize free-radical attacks…

And that’s why our radiation defense starts with Alpha-A…

You see, Alpha-A is technically an antioxidant.

But because of its one-of-a-kind atomic composition…

when it comes to antioxidant-power, in one measurement Alpha-A is nearly one and a half times as strong as Vitamin E and 8,000 times stronger than Vitamin C.

Alpha-A can travel to parts of the body that are OFF-LIMITS to many other antioxidants…

In fact, it’s so strong, it was used to protect children against radiation.

you need to combine Alpha-A with a second ingredient to help virtually FLUSH the free radicals out of your body..

. This second ingredient is called N-Acetyl Cysteine, or NAC for short.

Now, the incredible thing about NAC is that, once in your body, it gets converted into a powerful antioxidant known as glutathione.

Although 89,000 medical articles have been written about these two, most people are in the dark.

But NAC and glutathione are truly vital nutrients that EVERYONE NEEDS…

In fact, they are critical in the regulation of many cellular functions, and are essential for a healthy, robust immune system.

Like Alpha-A, NAC is made naturally in your body.

Unfortunately, the constant barrage of everyday radiation depletes glutathione, leaving your body lacking…

the most important thing about NAC is that it’s a MASTER DETOXIFIER…

And because it raises glutathione levels, it can help reduce toxins in your body, including the effects of everyday radiation.

In fact, NAC is so powerful, it’s given to patients to help them flush excess radiation from their systems.

you need a third ingredient to help REVERSE the corrosive damage done by radiation and free radicals.

This ingredient is called Camellia Sinensis, or CS for short…

CS is actually a unique species of evergreen shrub, also known as green tea, native to East Asia.

This single substance alone could change your life in profound and lasting ways.

In fact, CS is shown to help improve blood pressure… lower cholesterol… boost circulation… sharpen brain function… reduce stress… and instill a sense of well-being.

Of course, it’s most spectacular attribute is cellular repair.

That’s right… CS possesses restorative powers beyond comprehension.

CS contains a potent arsenal of bioactive compounds that are instrumental in repairing cellular damage. I’m talking about flavonoids, catechins, polyphenols, and more.

In a human study, CS mixed with water was shown to reduce oxidative damage by a whopping 30% after just one single dose!

Vital Screen 360 combines a whopping 400 mg of Alpha-A to help block the effects of radiation in mice… With 600 mg of NAC to help produce glutathione and flush free radicals from your system… And 700 mg of CS to help reverse the oxidative damage.

we’ve included a big healthy dose of both Vitamin C… and Vitamin E… in every serving of Vital Screen 360.

Folate

Folate, Mercola “This Go-To Strategy Helps Your Body Sweep Away Glyphosate and Heavy Metals… and Provides Your Cells With a B Vitamin They Can’t Live Without”

Living in today’s world assures a hefty exposure to heavy metals and harmful chemicals. From the food you eat to the air you breathe to your home furnishings, you take in a wide array of toxins daily. Discover how a little-known form of folate may be your ticket for boosting your body’s ability to eliminate toxins and help repair DNA for healthy cells and tissues.

It’s become downright alarming what’s in your body.

Take glyphosate for example, the active ingredient in the world’s most widely used pesticide... Nearly one billion pounds of glyphosate are sprayed on food crops each year in the U.S., five billion total worldwide.

And based on a recent analysis of over 1,200 urine samples, 76 percent of people have glyphosate in their system. Most people have no idea they have it in their bodies.

Add to that the heavy metals that deposit in your bones, gut, brain, kidneys, and tissues.

This includes mercury from dental fillings and fish, aluminum from cookware, cosmetics and antiperspirants, cadmium from cigarette smoke, arsenic from foods and fluoridated water, and lead from paint, toys, fuel, and more.

Once deposited, these toxic metals can block the functions of vital nutrients like zinc, calcium, and magnesium.

Glyphosate and heavy metals don’t go away on their own… They tend to stay put until you take action to help your body remove them.

I’m excited to tell you about a special form of folate – a crucial B vitamin – that’s now being recognized and used to help cleanse away these problematic substances.

However, many people are getting the wrong form of this misunderstood nutrient that’s so essential for helping to remove toxins, healthy cell growth and division. And by consuming this wrong form, you may actually be harming your body.

Why Folic Acid Supplementation Isn’t the Right Strategy

Starting today I want you to avoid folic acid supplementation.

Here’s the thing… your body needs folate, not folic acid. And no matter what anyone says, folic acid and folate are not interchangeable!

Folic acid is not the same thing as the folate you get from food. What’s more, folic acid combined with the glyphosate and heavy metals pervasive in our food supply may actually prevent you from getting the folate you need.

How to Tell If You Might Be Folate Deficient

Weakness or lack of energy

Frequent illness

Changes in mood or irritability

Poor digestion, bloating

Confusion and forgetfulness

Premature graying of hair

Loss of appetite

Pale skin

Sore, red tongue and mouth

Occasional loose stools or constipation

Those are just the outwards signs of a folate deficiency. Inside, you need to absorb adequate folate to help keep your cells and organs healthy.

If you consume a lot of folic acid from fortified foods and supplements, you can actually mask the appearance of a vitamin B12 deficiency!

The Price Your Liver Pays When You’re Overloaded With Folic Acid

Folic acid must be converted to folate for your body to use it. But because folic acid is missing what’s known as a methyl group, it must first get one from your liver before it can be converted.

When you consume large amounts of folic acid – from supplements and processed foods – your liver can become overwhelmed. Through the process of supplying methyl groups to folic acid, your liver can deplete itself of these critical groups.

Your liver not only can lose its ability to reduce folic acid, this process can also use up its supply of glutathione, the powerhouse molecule that’s essential for your body’s ability to clear out unwanted substances. Glutathione is needed to bind to and remove mercury and other heavy metals.

So if your liver exhausts itself, you can lose on two counts – compromise your body’s ability to cleanse itself of heavy metals and harmful substances, and be left with folic acid hanging out in your blood which is also not a good thing…

Understanding Methylation – A Crucial Process That Keeps Your Body Functioning Properly

this life-supporting process provides these necessary methyl groups to over two hundred functions in your body, including:

Repairing and building DNA and RNA

Protecting your cells’ telomeres or genetic material that affect aging

Turning genes on and off

Regulating cellular energy

Repairing cell membranes and nerve sheaths

Supporting a healthy normal allergic response

Building immune cells

Producing glutathione to aid in cleansing of tissues

Regulating hormones

Supporting your body’s ability to clear itself of chemicals and heavy metals

Modulating your body’s stress response

Regulating your brain’s neurotransmitters for mood, brain function, and sleep

Supporting healthy weight management

Are Methylation Issues Getting in the Way of Your Health and Happiness? Meet the MTHFR Gene

A mutation is a change in your DNA sequence. When you have a MTHFR mutation, you have what’s considered a down regulation of the enzyme. A mutation can affect a gene’s shape and function.

So what does all this have to do with folate?

The enzyme MTHFR converts the folate you get in food into its active form, 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF).

By turning folic acid into methylate folate or 5-MTHF, you kick-start your methylation cycle. And methylation is essential for the proper removal of heavy metals and chemicals like glyphosate from your body.

There are many everyday things you can do to help balance methylation and give your body its best chance to overcome the shortfall:

Avoid foods and supplements with folic acid (be sure to read labels!)

Eat lots of organic raw, leafy green vegetables and other high folate foods

Avoid processed foods, refined carbohydrates, and sugar

Minimize stress and practice stress management (I recommend Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and meditation)

Avoid dairy, gluten, and soy (especially important if you have methylation issues)

Restrict, or better yet, avoid alcohol (it depletes needed B vitamins)

Avoid smoking and second-hand smoke

Reduce your exposure to plastics, BPA, and manmade materials

Avoid using cleaning products with toxic and harsh chemicals

Using 5-MTHF Folate to Boost Methylation and Purge Glyphosate, Toxic Chemicals, and Heavy Metals

You need folate in the reduced and methylated 5-MTHF form to kick-start your methylation and clearing of toxins.

What’s so special about this form?

Whereas the 3rd generation 5-MTHF used a calcium salt that was limited in its stability and solubility properties, the advanced generation Quatrefolic® uses a glucosamine salt for greater solubility in water – and hence bioavailability

Glucosamine is naturally present in nearly all of your tissues and is already well known for joint health support*

It is GRAS (generally recognized as safe)

It’s structurally analogous to the reduced and active form of folic acid, 5-MTHF, so because it is already methylated, it relieves your liver of the exhaustive process of adding a methyl group

Our Folate 5 mg provides 5,000 mcg (5 mg) of Quatrefolic®5-MTHF Folate. That’s the equivalent of 5,000 mcg of folic acid, but in the form that your body and brain can readily use to assist with removal of cell-damaging substances.*

I recommend three products, including Folate to help break down and remove cell-damaging substances like glyphosate and heavy metals*:

Folate 5 mg aides the tissues’ ability to break down and remove glyphosate, heavy metals, and toxins*

Liver Support contains glutathione precursor NAC or N-Acetyl-Cysteine to support glutathione production and your liver’s cleansing processes, plus Milk Thistle and Broccoli Sprout powder to support healthy liver and kidney function*

Chlorella to help bind released toxins and heavy metals for removal from your body*

Once you start releasing and removing glyphosate and heavy metals you can start rebuilding your cells.

My Cell Rebuilding Strategy includes three products:

Complete Spore Restore to help rebuild your gut lining and improve your gut’s tight junctions*

Fiber and prebiotics, like my Organic Whole Husk Psyllium, to help nourish your beneficial gut bacteria and facilitate proper elimination*

Probiotics to help repopulate your microbiome and beneficial bacteria for optimal folate production*

Question: Is this the same as L-methyl Folate?
Answer: Actually, the L stands for levorotary from Latin "laevo". This is used when talking about chirality. For example, your hands are chiral or mirror images of each other. Chiral molecules are optically active structures, which means that they can rotate plane-polarized light. Therefore if the plane of polarized light rotates counterclockwise then it is levo- or (L) or (-) and if it is clockwise, then it is dextro from Latin "dexter" or (D) or (+).

Now, again from Latin, the (S) stands for "Sinister" or S-enantiomer which is left and the R stands for "Rectus" or R-enantiomer which is right. This is the way that one distinguishes between a pair of enantiomers. This is applied when looking at molecules where the atoms are attached at the stereocenter, whereas the dextro- and levo- are based on the specific rotation of the compound.

The rotation of the substituents about the stereocenter in decreasing order of priority determines whether it is S- or R-. If the order of priority decreases to the right or clockwise, it will be rectus and if it is to the left or counter-clockwise, it will be sinister. So you can have multiple stereocenters in your compound, like (2R,3S)- or (2R,3R) etc., but you can only have one dextro- or levo-rotation of your compound, meaning either dextrorotary or levorotary of the entire compound.

Therefore given this information, you do not want to take the R- form or (D)-methylfolate.

L-methylfolate and (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid are the most effective forms of folic acid that you want to consume because these will cross the "blood-brain barrier" or it is the active form that is transported across membranes. Does this make sense? You can always look up videos that can explain what the blood brain barrier is and what it means to be transported across the membrane.

R A reputable form of folate, but I like Solgar better
The Jarrow brand is one of several I have used for folate. Another is Solgar. Both are reputable companies. This particular brand offers a quite bioavailable form of folate, methyl folate 5-MTHF in the form of (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). (More on bioavailability below.) A downside of this supplement, that Solgar does not have, is that it comes in a plastic bottle. At least it is not clear plastic, so the supplement is protected from light damage. Folate is a vital B vitamin. A deficiency of this vitamin is implicated in developing atherosclerosis or having a heart attack or stroke because, in conjunction with vitamins B6 and B12, it is essential for lowering homocysteine levels. Folate deficiency can also lead to birth defects in pregnancy, macular degeneration, depression, and accelerated aging.

Folate consumed from natural, whole, unprocessed foods is safe, and there are no known examples of overdosing on folate-rich foods, very likely because most Americans rarely eat very much of these nutritious foods. They include: beans, lentils, spinach, asparagus, Romaine lettuce, avocado, broccoli, cauliflower, mango, oranges, turnip greens, mustard greens, parsley, collard greens, and beets.

In purchasing supplemental folate, it is crucial to know the difference between the terms, folate and folic acid. Folate is often used as a generic term for a group of water soluble B vitamins which are also known as B9. Folate is also the term specifically used for the form of B9 that naturally occurs in food. Folic acid is an oxidized, synthetic compound which processed-food manufacturers in the USA have been mandated since 1998 to fortify food with in order to prevent neural tube defects in newborns.

Natural folate from food sources is metabolized in the mucosa of the small intestine to tetrahydrofolate (THF), the body's only usable form of folate. In contrast, folic acid is first converted to methylation in the liver. From there, it must be converted by the liver to THF, via THE ENZYME, DIHYDROFOLATE REDUCTASE. If there is very high intake of folic acid from fortified food or nutritional supplements, there might not be enough of this enzyme to metabolize all of the folic acid.

Other issues which can lead to this problem include the following: a person has a genetic mutation of the MTHFR gene, which interferes with production of the MTHFR enzyme; a person suffers from liver disease or takes certain pharmaceuticals which interfere with folic acid metabolism. These medications include: anticonvulsants (such as phenytoin, primidone, carbamazepine or valproate), metformin (prescribed to control blood sugar in type 2 diabetes), methotrexate (an anti-cancer drug, also used to control inflammation associated with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and rheumatoid arthritis), SULFASALAZINE (used to control inflammation associated with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and rheumatoid arthritis), triamterene (a diuretic), oral contraceptives.

All of the above causes can result in an unsafe amount of unmetabolized folic acid entering the bloodstream. Research has indicated that high amounts of unmetabolized folic acid within the bloodstream is implicated in the growth and spread of cancer. Scientists believe that this is due to two possible reasons: it stimulates the growth of premalignant and malignant cells and tumors, and it decreases the effectiveness of natural killer cells, which play a major role in the destruction of tumor cells.

Since the MTHFR gene mutation is growing ever more prevalent in the general population, it is becoming increasingly common to find supplemental folate that can be instantly utilized by the body without need for any chemical conversion in the small intestines or liver because it is in the form of THF and is called 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). There are various names for this ingredient besides the generic name 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), including another generic name, methylfolate, and the brand names, Quatrafolic, Extrafolate, and Metafolin. It is also important to purchase a specific chemical structure of folate which has the best bioavailability, the kind with an "L-" or "6S-" in front of the folate word. Any form with "D" in front of the folate word should be avoided.

There have been many scientific studies of folate over the past few decades,and a similar situation is found for nutraceuticals as is very common with pharmaceuticals, to wit: There is a noticeable difference between the observable positive effects when a drug or supplement is administered in vitro (in a cell culture) as compared to in vivo (in living animals or humans).

Cell studies virtually always show far greater positive results than do animal and human tests. As a result of this variation, it is hard to predict how much positive result any given person may experience from any pharmaceutical or nutraceutical they ingest, as well as the degree of any potential negative side effects.

Fortunately, unlike for pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals that are properly processed in well-maintained factories don't kill up to 45,000 people per year in the USA alone as pharmaceuticals routinely do. In fact, the only documented cases of deaths attributable to nutraceuticals, and there are very few of these, are from herbal weight-loss products which are often adulterated illegally with drugs or consist of formulations which rely overmuch on adrenaline-pumping herbs and caffeine.

R This sub-type of methyl folate wrecks me. Others do not.
This particular type of methyl folate completely crushes me. If I take it at night, I am wrecked for half of the next day. If I take it in the morning, my day is ruined, even at this low dose, with just one pill. If I take it for a few days in a row, it gets very bad. I had the same issue with PoDiaPN, which uses the same type of methyl folate. I take other B vitamins including B6, B3 and B12 methylcobalamin. I have the homozygous MTHFR A1298C defect, double copy.

Folic Acid vs Folate — What's the Difference? HealthLine

Folic acid is a synthetic form of vitamin B9, also known as pteroylmonoglutamic acid. It is used in supplements and added to processed food products, such as flour and breakfast cereals. For many years, folic acid was thought to be much better absorbed than naturally-occurring folate.

Folate and folic acid are different forms of vitamin B9. Even though there is a distinct difference between the two, their names are often used interchangeably. In fact, there is a lot of confusion regarding folic acid and folate, even among professionals. Being aware of their differences is important, because they do not have the same effects on your health.

Vitamin B9

Vitamin B9 is an essential nutrient that naturally occurs as folate.

Folate serves many important functions in the body. For example, it plays a crucial role in cell growth and the formation of DNA.

Having low levels of folate is associated with an increased risk of several health conditions.

Elevated homocysteine: High homocysteine levels have been associated with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke

Birth defects: Low folate levels in pregnant women have been linked to birth abnormalities, such as neural tube defects

Cancer risk: Poor levels of folate are also linked to increased cancer risk

For these reasons, supplementation with vitamin B9 is common. Fortifying food with this nutrient is actually mandatory in countries such as the US, Canada and Chile.

However, the problem is that supplements and fortified foods usually contain folic acid, not folate.

Bottom Line

Vitamin B9 is an essential nutrient, mainly present as folate and folic acid. It is commonly taken in supplements, and is even added to processed food in North America.

What Is Folate?

Folate is the naturally-occurring form of vitamin B9.

Its name is derived from the Latin word "folium," which means leaf. In fact, leafy vegetables are among the best dietary sources of folate.

Folate is actually a generic name for a group of related compounds with similar nutritional properties.

The active form of vitamin B9 is a folate known as levomefolic acid or 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF).

In the digestive system, the majority of dietary folate is converted into 5-MTHF before entering the bloodstream

BOTTOM LINE:
Folate is the naturally-occurring form of vitamin B9. Before entering the bloodstream, the digestive system converts it into the biologically active form of vitamin B9, 5-MTHF.

What Is Folic Acid?

Folic acid is a synthetic form of vitamin B9, also known as pteroylmonoglutamic acid.

It is used in supplements and added to processed food products, such as flour and breakfast cereals.

For many years, folic acid was thought to be much better absorbed than naturally-occurring folate.

However, a diet containing a variety of folate-rich, whole foods has been shown to be almost as effective

Unlike most folate, the majority of folic acid is not converted to the active form of vitamin B9, 5-MTHF, in the digestive system. Instead, it needs to be converted in the liver or other tissues

Yet this process is slow and inefficient. After taking a folic acid supplement, it takes time for the body to convert all of it to 5-MTHF

Even a small dose, such as 200–400 mcg per day, may not be completely metabolized until the next dose is taken. This problem is even worse when fortified foods are eaten along with folic acid supplements

As a result, un-metabolized folic acid is commonly detected in people's bloodstreams, even in the fasted state

This is a cause for concern, since high levels of un-metabolized folic acid have been associated with several health problems.

However, one study suggests that taking folic acid along with other B-vitamins, particularly vitamin B6, makes the conversion more efficient

BOTTOM LINE:
Folic acid is a synthetic form of vitamin B9. The body does not convert it into active vitamin B9 very well, so un-metabolized folic acid may build up in the bloodstream.

Is Un-Metabolized Folic Acid Harmful?

Several studies indicate that chronically elevated levels of un-metabolized folic acid may have adverse health effects. These include:

Increased cancer risk: High levels of un-metabolized folic acid have been associated with increased cancer risk. They may also speed up the growth of precancerous lesions

Undetected B12 deficiency: Among elderly people, high folic acid levels may hide vitamin B12 deficiency. Untreated vitamin B12 deficiency may increase the risk of dementia and impair nerve function

Even a small, daily dose of 400 mcg may cause un-metabolized folic acid to build up in the bloodstream

Although high folic acid intake is a concern, the health implications are unclear and further studies are needed.

What Is the Healthiest Source of Vitamin B9?

It is best to get vitamin B9 from whole foods.

High-folate foods include asparagus, avocados, Brussels sprouts, and leafy greens such as spinach and lettuce.

it is best to choose supplements that do not contain folic acid.

Some supplements contain 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), which is considered a healthier alternative to folic acid. Studies have shown that 5-MTHF is equal to or even better than folic acid

Supplemental 5-MTHF is bound to calcium, and is usually known as methyl folate or levomefolate calcium. It is also sold under the brand names Metafolin and Deplin.

Baking Soda

3 Ways to Drink Baking Soda for Better Health It turns out that sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) is a chemical salt that, in its natural form, is the mineral nahcolite. Baking soda can react as both an acid and a base, although in an aqueous solution it is a bit on the alkaline side.

Pure nahcolite is found in abundance in the Green River Basin, which cuts through several states in the central part of our country.

Sodium bicarbonate helps to regulate pH and keep it steady – a process known as buffering. It keeps substances from being too acidic or too alkaline. Its ability to neutralize the pH of any substance it comes in contact with makes it highly effective for so many things.

Now, you may know about all the amazing ways you can use baking soda around your home such as:

Cleaning coffee makers
Cleaning drains
Ridding hair of buildup
Polishing silver
Septic care
Making toothpaste
Making deodorant
Cleaning brushes and combs
Refreshing your fridge
Easing itching and swelling
Putting out a grease fire
Breaking down ice on a sidewalk or driveway

But… did you know that drinking baking soda can be very healthy for you? Yes, it’s true, drinking something as simple as baking soda can drastically improve your health. What is even more amazing is that when you combine baking soda with other powerful ingredients, the healing powers are supercharged.

The only caution we have is that you stick to an aluminum-free brand of baking soda whenever possible.

Here are three of our favorite healthy baking soda tonics:

Ultimate energy booster and electrolyte replacer

Do you know that nagging, dragging feeling you get when you are about halfway through your 5-run, or partway through that spin class? The feeling like you can’t push your body one bit more?

Well, we have great news for you: this ultimate energy booster tonic will not only help motivate you to get moving, it will also help you go harder for longer no matter what physical activity you are doing.

This is because strenuous exercise leads to a buildup of lactic acid – which can cause muscle pain and fatigue. Baking soda has been found to boost performance in athletes due to its ability to neutralize lactic acid buildup.

Ingredients:

½ teaspoon unprocessed sea salt
¼ teaspoon baking soda
7 cups coconut water
½ cup lemon juice
¼ cup raw honey

Instructions:

  1. Heat the coconut water on low and mix in baking soda until it is dissolved.
  2. Add other ingredients and pour mixture into glass jar.
  3. Shake well before use.
  4. This will keep for a week in the refrigerator.

COCONUT WATER: Although coconut water has a deceptively light consistency, it has higher levels of minerals such as iron, magnesium, manganese, calcium and zinc than many fruits, including the famously healthy orange. Additionally, coconut water has high amounts of B-vitamins, such as niacin, thiamin, riboflavin and pyridoxine.

One of the best benefits of coconut water is that it is extremely high in potassium. As your body sweats during exercise or vigorous physical activity, your level of potassium drops. Coconut water has approximately 250 milligrams of potassium and 105 milligrams of sodium in every 100 milliliter serving.

The supercharged acid reflux reliever

Because acid reflux typically results from having too little acid in your stomach, you can help improve this by mixing 2 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered, apple cider vinegar into a 6 to 8 ounce glass of water.

Adding ¼ teaspoon of baking soda to this mixture will further help neutralize your internal fire. Be prepared, however: this mixture will foam – so wait for it to slow down before you drink it.

Green tea and baking soda metabolism booster

A recent study out of Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences found that drinking green tea regularly can boost the effects of exercise to aid weight loss efforts. The study was conducted on mice that were fed a diet with high amounts of fat, exercised regularly, and given green tea extract. The mice showed an average body mass reduction of 27.1 percent and an average abdominal mass reduction of 36.6 percent.

There are three compounds in green tea that are thought to help promote weight loss: catechins, theanine and caffeine. These substances work together to block enzymes that are responsible for fat storage in the body.

When you combine the super-metabolizing powers of green tea with baking soda, you rev up your fat burning power while encouraging optimal pH ( 7.2) in the body. This is necessary for balance.

A pH factor that is not optimal will cause excess acid to be stored in fat cells. An acidic person can’t burn fat well, because doing so would release the acid that is stored in body fat – and this would throw the blood pH out of whack. If your pH is not balanced, you may also feel fatigued and ill.

Choose organic green tea and add ¼ teaspoon of baking soda to an 8 ounce cup before drinking. Enjoy daily.

Baking soda solution offers a safe way to reduce inflammation and fight autoimmune disease, NEW research says

Baking Soda May Reduce Premature Death Risk By Stephen Seifert, TheAlternativeDaily.com

Research published this month in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology found that having balanced baking soda, or bicarbonate, levels in your body could reduce your chances of an early death.

The study examined data compiled in the Health, Aging and Body Composition Study for 2,287 participants. Participants were healthy adults who, at the onset of the study in 1997, were between the ages of 70 and 79, and were followed for approximately 10 years. Survival data were gathered through February 2014.

What did they find?

Study author Dr. Kalani Raphael, associate professor and nephrology and hypertension specialist at the University of Utah, and colleagues investigated pH, carbon dioxide and bicarbonate in association with long-term survival. According to the University of Utah press release, “Critically ill patients with severe acid-base abnormalities have a very low likelihood of surviving their illness, but it’s unclear whether more subtle changes in the body’s acid-base status have an effect on the longevity of relatively healthy older people.”

Raphael and colleagues found that low levels of bicarbonate may be linked to an increased risk for premature death by 24 percent. Sodium bicarbonate assists your body in balancing pH levels, possibly extending life. “What we found was that generally healthy older people with low levels of bicarbonate had a higher risk of death,” Raphael said. “Adding the pH measurement into the equation didn’t change the results, which is important because pH is not routinely measured.” The study’s findings may assist clinicians in better assessing a patient’s risk of premature death by analyzing their blood bicarbonate concentrations more closely. Clinicians can recommend dietary adjustments to patients with low bicarbonate concentrations to optimize health.

What does it mean for me?

How do you get more baking soda in your life? Surprisingly, the answer has nothing to do with that yellow box in your fridge fighting odors. If you want to balance your pH levels by getting more sodium bicarbonate in your diet, eating more fruits and vegetables is the key.

Fruits and vegetables high in potassium and bicarbonate will have a negative potential renal acid load (PRAL) score. This represents the amount of acid produced by the kidneys after metabolism. The higher the negative, the more potassium and bicarbonate they will provide, potentially reducing your risk of premature death, according to the study. Apples, raisins, spinach, bananas, carrots, broccoli, lemons and even coffee are a few sources that will boost your potassium and bicarbonate levels.

Whether your passion is walking, gardening, biking, golfing, traveling, reading or just chasing after those grandkids, you want your "golden years" to be your opportunity to dive fully into the things that make you happy. But as I'm sure you realize, for this to be possible, you need to stay healthy, energetic and mentally sharp throughout your 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond. So how can you be one of the lucky ones to pull this off? Please keep reading, because today you're going learn how you can become a healthier version of yourself with renewed energy, more stamina, fewer aches and pains, and better mental focus. In short, it can help you do all the things you love, BETTER!

We've known for a while now that antioxidants are our most effective weapon against the health-damaging free radicals that cause oxidation and inflammation throughout the body. Free radicals literally accelerate the aging process, making way too many of us feel "old" and tired during what should be the best years of our lives. And if you've read my newsletter, you know that I have been a big advocate of a unique, natural antioxidant called astaxanthin for many years now.

Groundbreaking research has shown that this rare, deep red-colored carotenoid found exclusively in a particular ocean plant species is the most powerful antioxidant available in nature. Study after study has revealed that astaxanthin can provide extraordinary benefits for your energy, muscles, joints, heart, brain, eyes, skin and more.

Unlike most water-soluble antioxidants, which simply circulate throughout your bloodstream, astaxanthin is fat-soluble, which means it has the remarkable ability to actually integrate itself into every cell, tissue and organ in your body where it can neutralize the inflammation-causing free radicals. That may be why in a test that measured the ability to neutralize a particularly unstable and destructive type of free radical, called singlet oxygen, astaxanthin was shown to be up to:

40 times stronger than beta-carotene

• 100 times stronger than vitamin E

• 800 times stronger than CoQ10

• And 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C!

Why I Take a Triple Dose of Astaxanthin Every Day When I began taking an astaxanthin supplement several years ago, I experienced health benefits that were nothing short of amazing. The nagging knee pain that suddenly appeared in my 40s disappeared. My energy and stamina increased—I found myself biking to work daily, and taking longer and more challenging hikes on the weekends. And at night, after being so active, surprisingly my body didn't feel like a wreck! I actually felt refreshed and invigorated. Even though the standard dose was 4 mg, because of the extraordinary benefits I was experiencing, I often found myself taking double and even triple doses—with results that seemed to just keep getting better and better the more I took! For me, a 12 mg dose was perfect. And new study findings have been confirming what I have personally experienced to be true about larger doses of astaxanthin.

The latest research has revealed what was once a closely guarded secret among professional athletes and marathon runners who have credited larger doses of astaxanthin with helping them reach previously unthought-of feats of endurance and stamina. And I am now fully convinced that 12 mg per day is the ideal daily dosage of astaxanthin because it has been shown to:

- Neutralize free radicals to protect cells, reduce DNA damage and fight aging
• Promote a normal inflammatory response body-wide
• Improve muscle endurance and exercise performance
• Reduce joint pain and support healthy, flexible joints
• Support healthy circulation and overall cardiovascular health
• Help your brain and nervous system function optimally
• Relieve eye strain and fatigue, and support near and far vision
• Protect skin against UV damage, dryness, wrinkles and premature aging

Simply put... Astaxanthin Makes It Easier to Stay Active and Healthier!

This may seem like a "no brainer," but research has shown that higher levels of physical activity are correlated with a longer lifespan and healthier old age.

Being active—whether it's walking, lifting weights at the gym or ballroom dancing—helps our bodies detoxify and strengthens our immune system. And indeed, there is evidence that exercise has a measurable anti-aging effect on our cells.

Here's a fun fact I like to share with my readers: Did you know that astaxanthin is what makes salmon's flesh pink? And guess what? Astaxanthin is also what gives salmon their seemingly supernatural ability to achieve marathon swimming feats, leaping up waterfalls and traveling against the current for days.

But today, incredibly convincing evidence indicates that astaxanthin can increase your strength and stamina, and help you exercise longer and feel less sore afterwards—without a big price tag or any side effects.

Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated how astaxanthin can help you stay active, exercise longer, feel less sore afterwards, and even burn fat more effectively... incredible results:

- Astaxanthin has been shown to help deliver oxygen and energy to the muscle cells that need it during exercise.

• Astaxanthin reduced levels of lactic acid (the metabolite that really causes you to "feel the burn") during exercise by 28.6%.

• Astaxanthin increased muscle endurance in men, enabling them to perform 62% more knee bends while carrying a 90-pound weight!

• Astaxanthin improved the cycling performance of competitive male endurance cyclists, shaving two minutes off their time in a 20-kilometer trial!

• Astaxanthin even helped increase fat burn during exercise. Daily doses of 12 mg of astaxanthin resulted in a significant reduction in body fat percentage.

One well-known University of Memphis study found that astaxanthin helped ease joint discomfort even after strenuous exercise.[22] Another eight-week double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study evaluated the effect of a 12 mg daily dose of astaxanthin on joint discomfort. While the placebo group's scores essentially remained unaffected by the end of the eight weeks, pain scores decreased by 35%!

Astaxanthin also acts to lower important inflammatory markers. In one study, volunteers taking astaxanthin for two months saw their levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) plummet. CRP is an important marker of inflammation in the body—and high CRP levels also affect heart health.

5 Reasons You Should Boost Your Astaxanthin Intake If you haven’t heard of astaxanthin, a potent antioxidant that is thought to be up to 100 times stronger than vitamin E, now is a good time to get up to speed.

Credited for being the most powerful of all antioxidants, astaxanthin (pronounced “asta-ZAN-thin”) plays a significant role in promoting human health and protecting against various diseases, according to increasing scientific evidence.

Abundant in certain aquatic life, such as sockeye salmon, red trout, algae, shrimp and crabs, astaxanthin is the pigment that creates their pinkish-red tone.

Top 5 Astaxanthin Benefits

1. Better Skin

2. Fight Cancer

3. Reduce The Inflammatory Response

Inflammation is known to be a contributor to many diseases and chronic conditions, such as osteoarthritis (OA), Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), carpal tunnel syndrome, and even acne. With it’s natural powerful anti-inflammatory and pain relieving abilities, astaxanthin can provide relief without the side affects common in some over-the-counter and prescription medications.

4. Protect Against Sun Damage

5. Support Brain Health

Astaxanthin: How the “King of Carotenoids” Completely Revived My Health The results from thousands of research studies have made one thing crystal clear: Maintaining a healthy inflammatory response body-wide is the single most effective way to keep your body and mind functioning optimally as you get older.

And unquestionably, free radical-fighting antioxidants are the key to promoting this healthy inflammatory response.

40 times stronger than beta-carotene…

800 times stronger than CoQ10

And 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C![1]

With just a small amount of this single nutrient (about the size of a pea), you can enjoy the amazing health benefits of dozens of different natural health remedies such as:

A healthier and optimally functioning brain — even if you’re in your 50s…60s…70s…and beyond!

Relief from joint discomfort — even if you have been plagued with joint problems for years!

A healthier heart — without resorting to a restrictive diet or excessive exercise!

Age-defying skin — smooth and supple, with a clear complexion, and without the toxic chemicals contained in many popular brands of cosmetics!

Clear vision — by combatting the free radicals that are a major cause of eye problems as you age.

The “super nutrient” that can give you all of these terrific health benefits is the carotenoid pigment astaxanthin — a powerful, fat-soluble antioxidant found in microalgae, shrimp, crayfish, krill and deep-sea phytoplankton. It’s what gives salmon its pink color and turns flamingos from white to pink.

R After using the Happy Hour Vitamins Hangover blend for years, I finally decided to pick up some of the Electrolyte Pills, and they couldn't have some a better time. They day they arrived I had just finished doing several hours of intense yardwork and was completely worn out. Popped a couple Electrolyte Pills with a bottle of water, and within the hour I was already feeling like jumping on more tasks around the house! I am thoroughly impressed with this blend!

NitronMax THE DAD BOD KILLER! HOW MILLIONS OF OLDER MEN ARE GETTING RIPPED IN WEEKS!

(CNN News) - They're calling it the “War Against the Dad Bod.” Millions of Dads and Granddads are coming together to build muscle like never before - decreasing their fat to muscle ratios and improving health. Many of them are taking it a step further and getting ripped bodies in weeks. In a Special Report released this week, Dr. Oz calls the viral internet movement “the most widespread trend in health science for men.”


This movement was sparked by a 10 year long study published last month. Researchers at Harvard Medical School determined the true consequences of low muscle mass. The study’s findings boil down to two parts: First, “93% of American men over 40 do not have healthy levels of muscle mass.” And second, fat to muscle ratio is the most important factor for determining health in men over 40. “High fat and low muscle ratios result in numerous health problems, including mental illness, low libido, ED, fatigue, and depression.”


THIS VIRAL MOVEMENT INCLUDES MEN OF ALL AGES - EVEN MEN IN THEIR 70S ARE GETTING RIPPED!

The movement's plan has gotten buy-in from health professionals, doctors, and celebrities. Arnold Schwarzenegger says that the movement has completely changed what he thought was possible from an all-natural supplementation - he’s been on the program for 3 months and claims to rarely workout while maintaining muscle mass. Another actor that has recently revealed daily use of the plan is Sylvester Stallone, who was quoted saying “I was losing muscle every second I was away for the gym until I started on this. But when I’m taking NitroneMax I just never lose muscle. In fact, I increase mass even without the gym!”


As I researched the movement thoroughly, it became obvious what was at its core--a revolutionary new supplement called NitroneMax. It’s an exclusive blend of natural ingredients from Italy, Southeast Asia, Paraguay, and Botswana, that provide incredible effects safely.

NITRONEMAX HAS BEEN SHOWN TO:

Boost Energy

Build Muscle

Burn Fat

Increase Sex Drive

Increase Efficiency Of The Metabolism

Provide Numerous Antioxidants

Eliminate Toxins

NITRONEMAX UNIQUE INGREDIENTS:

L-ARGININE

A natural alpha amino-acid that acts as an hemodilator and boosts the Nitric Oxide levels in your body - clearing up your cardio system and opening it up to better absorb nutrients. The nitric oxide synthase enzyme also improves vasodilation to prevent clogged arteries (atherosclerosis), coronary artery disease, heart attacks and other cardiovascular conditions.

MILK THISTLE (SILYBUM MARIANUM)

One of nature’s most powerful antioxidants. It is a key element in cell membranes and will keep toxins from getting inside liver cells. Early laboratory studies suggest that silymarin and other active substances in milk thistle may extend the lifespan of cells in your body.

COLEUS FORSKOHLII

The diterpenoids in coleonol (active compound) are a powerful weight loss aid. Clinical studies show that it helps “melt” fatty tissue faster and more efficiently. This unique nutrient is also known to be used for people who suffer from insomnia and other sleep disorders as a powerful relaxation aid.

EURYCOMA LONGIFOLIA (PENAWAR PAHIT)

This is one of Asia’s best kept secrets: Penawar is shown to boost virility and libido. In addition to the aphrodisiac effects, Eurycoma can also increase sperm production and may directly act as a proerectile agent. At least one molecule in Eurycoma (9-hydroxycanthin-6-one) is associated with both a delay in ejaculation as well as pro-erectile properties.

WEEK 1:

One week after starting I was surprised at the dramatic results. My energy level was up, and I was never hungry. A welcomed side effect of NitroneMax is its power to curb the appetite.

Best of all, I didn’t have to change anything about my daily routine. On Day 7, I got on the scale and couldn’t believe my eyes. I had lost 4 pounds. But I still wasn’t convinced, since they say you lose a lot of water weight at the beginning of any diet. I wanted to wait and see the results in the upcoming weeks.

WEEK 3:

After 3 weeks, all my doubts and skepticism had absolutely vanished! I'm attractive again! I am down from a 40 to a 34 pant sizes after losing another 8 pounds. I'm also way stronger and look muscular. And I still have a ton of energy.

WEEK 4:

After the fourth week, my final results were shocking. I lost an unbelievable 16 pounds since starting NitroneMax. And since I built significant amount of muscle that fat loss was probably double that. I believe the before and after AndroXLTesto/picture says it all - way less fat and more muscle. Actually everyone at CNN is kicking themselves for not having volunteered to test it out.


Like everyone here at CNN, you might be doubtful about the effects of the plan, but my advice is that you take advantage of this complimentary 30-day supply of NitroneMax. Try it for yourself; the results are real. After conducting my personal study, I am confident in recommending the product to any man who does not have a healthy fat to muscle ratio.

EDITOR'S NOTE:For a limited time, the Official Suppliers of NitroneMax have agreed to offer a Free Month Supply to our readers.





Ubiquinoi

Ubiquinol$52.17

“The Perfect Storm That Threatens Your Mitochondria and Energy-Hungry Organs” Turn a blind eye to this and your heart, brain, immune function, cellular health and energy levels could suffer. Plus, you might even be rolling out the red carpet for free radicals to take center stage. And if you're taking any of these commonly used drugs, ignoring this might be downright foolish...

Dr. Mercola: So why do I single out the age of 30? For most people, this marks the start of a decline in production of an important nutrient along with a waning ability to convert it to its active usable form. For a few individuals, that decline can begin even earlier.

Because two other things start to happen, too, that can really put your cells and organs at risk. Assaults on your cells from free radicals rise as you age and your body’s natural defenses to fight them gradually weaken.

Researchers now know that these four factors can converge into a potentially perilous situation for your cellular energy and health, especially your mitochondria.

And since your mitochondrial function is at the heart of everything that happens in your body, that risk extends particularly to your energy-demanding heart muscle and the rate at which your organs age.

However, you don’t need to helplessly stand by and allow this storm to ravage your body. Researchers have identified a potent tool that can help make a difference.*

Most of each of your cells contain several hundred mitochondria – little energy factories that supply the majority of the fuel and energy that your body produces.

These cellular power plants create energy in the form of ATP or adenosine triphosphate from the food you eat combined with oxygen.

Tissues in your body that are more power-hungry, like your heart, brain, kidneys and muscles, have more mitochondria to help meet their needs.

You need plenty of healthy mitochondria to provide your body and organs with the fuel or energy they need to function properly.

However, in the process of meeting your body’s energy needs, your cells – and mitochondria – pay a steep price…

The intense energy-producing process creates byproducts known as reactive oxygen species (ROS). Excessive ROS can damage your cells and mitochondrial DNA and make your organs age faster. As you age, your levels of damage from mitochondria dysfunction rise and your body’s natural defenses weaken.

The net result from faulty mitochondria can affect your health and wellness.

This brings us to the researchers’ bottom line discovery about your mitochondria: They believe most health issues start with the breakdown of your cells’ mitochondria.

Since mitochondrial function is at the very heart of everything that occurs in your body, optimizing mitochondrial function – and preventing mitochondrial dysfunction – is the key to your total body health and wellness.

So how can you help optimize the health and efficiency of your mitochondria and make sure your cells and organs have the energy they need?

You can help increase the total number of mitochondria in your cells by exercising. High-intensity interval exercise is especially beneficial.

You can also boost the efficiency of your mitochondria by getting the proper nutrients. Magnesium is extremely important and so is another nutrient I’m about to tell you about… CoQ10: A Turnkey for Mitochondrial Health

Made by your cells, it’s found mostly on the inner membranes of your mitochondria.

Your body’s strongest fat-soluble antioxidant, CoQ10 helps safeguard your mitochondria from deterioration and death in two important ways:

It helps pump protons across the mitochondrial membrane for ATP production.*

It acts as a powerful scavenger for excess free radicals and helps reduce their damaging effects.*

Typically, the higher your levels of CoQ10, the healthier your mitochondria and cells.* And because your heart, brain, liver and kidneys are all high energy-demanding organs, those cells especially need high concentrations of CoQ10.

When your mitochondria produce optimal levels of ATP or energy, your cells thrive and so do your organs, especially high-energy organs like your heart and muscles. And when your body has plentiful fuel for all its functions, you can often feel that extra energy and stamina in your everyday life!*

your ability to convert CoQ10 to ubiquinol, its active, useful form, becomes less efficient as you age. One researcher, Schulman, points out that some people cannot convert CoQ10 to ubiquinol at all in their bodies.

Liposomal CoQ10 contains phospholipids from sunflower lecithin to provide a formula that doesn’t contain soy or bioengineered ingredients. And just like our Vitamin D, we use the same high-quality source of sunflower lecithin that has been tested to show it is free of aflatoxins — a potentially dangerous carcinogen that can grow on sunflower seeds if they’re not properly stored.

Let’s take a closer look at how Liposomal CoQ10 potentially works in your body:

  1. After swallowing the capsule, it travels into your stomach and intestines.
  2. The acids in your stomach cause the capsule to rapidly disintegrate and release its contents.
  3. The CoQ10 and lecithin mix with water and can form structures called liposomes.
  4. The liposomes contain phospholipid bilayers of molecules and many of these surround the CoQ10 to help protect and transport this nutrient.
  5. The CoQ10 is incorporated into the fat molecules of the phospholipid-liposome bilayers.
  6. The liposome bilayers encapsulating the CoQ10 nutrient are similar to the cell walls themselves, they help provide easy access across your gut membrane into your bloodstream.
  7. Once the liposomes are absorbed from your GI tract into your bloodstream, they penetrate more rapidly into the target tissues and cells where they are needed.

Taking Statin Drugs or These Other Popular Medications?
Supplementing With Liposomal CoQ10 or Ubiquinol May Make Good Sense

Why Your Entire Body Will Love Our Ubiquinol

Supports optimal heart and cardiovascular health and function*
Helps boost your energy and stamina levels over the long term*
Supports optimal energy production in the mitochondria in all of your cells*
Helps you feel younger and reduces the normal signs of aging by helping to prevent damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals*
Supports healthy blood pressure levels that are already in the normal range*
Enhances the support of your immune and nervous systems*
Supports the health of your brain, heart, liver and kidneys by helping tissue cells generate energy and protect against damage from free radicals and oxidative stress*
Support healthy levels of CoQ10 and ubiquinol in your body if you're taking statins or other drugs*

Just one word of caution… Ubiquinol isn’t a stimulant, so please don’t expect a dramatic “surge” in energy immediately after you start taking it.

Rather, as your blood, tissue and organ levels of ubiquinol gradually rise to healthy normal levels, you’ll likely see an increase in your overall energy levels and stamina.

Your body can’t make cellular energy for your heart and other vital organs out of conventional CoQ10 – it must first be converted into ubiquinol, a less efficient process. Why wait and take the risk?

More than 60 research studies show the health benefits of ubiquinol, much of it peer-reviewed, human clinical studies conducted at prestigious universities*

Studies consistently show Ubiquinol to be the form of CoQ10 that’s easier for your body to use, especially after the age of 30

It enables you to be less dependent on your body to convert ubiquinone to its active form, ubiquinol. (More than 90 percent of CoQ10 exists as ubiquinol in the plasma of healthy subjects)*

Take 100 mg twice a day.

If you are a new Ubiquinol user, I recommend taking a “loading dose” for the first two to three weeks. This will help you achieve rapid, optimal ubiquinol levels in your blood, tissues and organs.

For best absorption and utilization, take fat-soluble Ubiquinol with food. If you select more than one reason, choose to take the higher dosage.

I recommend dividing your daily amount into two doses: morning and afternoon.

R As a disabled iraq veteran with no honest, genuine support from the gov., I've had chronic health complications for over a decade now, and I have tried 3 different black seed oils. This one ( Heritage ) is by far the better quality, and at iHerb is priced right considering I can't afford to pay any more than they charge. Don't be fooled by other brands who source their seeds from anywhere but Turkey, Turkish seeds are 4x stronger. And for overcoming or just controlling chronic conditions, it does make a difference.

R I have PCOS, so I have irregular menstrual problems and insulin resistance. Unfortunately my tummy can't tolerate Metformin. And I don't want to go on birth control pills for the rest of my existence. So I have been trying different doctors and try to find alternatives to control my health problems. I tried Evening Primrose oil pills. They worked great for a while and then stopped working... Luckily I came upon this little gem few months ago and I have never felt better. This is the first black seed oil brand I've ever tried so I don't know its performance compared to other brands but boy oh boy this is perfect for me... I have a teaspoon of this in the morning with empty stomach. It has a strong spicy taste but doesn't bother me in the least. My periods are back and I am less sensitive to sugar. (I have been on a Keto diet for a year now). On top of all that I have other benefits that I didn't expect to have. I always had a sensitive tummy that goes bonkers often. I either have constipation or diarrhoea. This has calmed down my tummy a lot and now I am going to the bathroom like clockwork. I am so glad that I found this product. Highly recommend it. Due to PCOS and imbalanced hormones my skin is like a teenager's. I get acne often even though I do essential oil cleansing and use tea tree oil to control acne. This has calmed down my skin a lot. I get acne even now but far less than I used to. Furthermore, I used to be a very healthy person, I rarely even had a cold. But after moving to New Zealand 4 years ago I constantly got sinus and chest infections. I got sick every 3-4 months. I have been using this product for about 3 months now and I have yet to become sick. Hopefully it will stay that way! Highly recommend this product to anyone.

Top 27 Amazing Black Seed Oil Benefits (Nigella Sativa) At the age of 25, with lots of questions and very few satisfying answers, Joe decided to embark on a journey of self-experimentation - something that has since become known as "bio-hacking". He founded SelfHacked about 4 years ago and without any funds has transformed it to the fastest growing health website and the largest biohacking website, getting 1.5 million people visiting a month. He also founded SelfDecode which has become a leading platform for analyzing genetics for health information

Black Cumin Oil is one of my favorite supplements. It seems to help many people with a diverse array of issues.

Nigella sativa, commonly known as Black Cumin, Black Seed, or Black Cumin Seed is native to South Asia. Black Cumin seed has been used in Middle Eastern folk medicine as a natural remedy for various diseases for over 2000 years

“Use Black seed regularly, since it is a cure for every disease except death” (Prophet Muhammad) (R), and its many uses have earned Black Cumin the Arabic approbation “The Blessed Seed“

Raw seeds, seed oil, or seed extract have been used alone or in combination with other ingredients, as a traditional medicine in the treatment of various health conditions, such as eczema, cough, headache, diabetes, asthma, infection, and hypertension

Due to its miraculous power of healing, Black Cumin has got the place among the top-ranked evidence-based herbal medicines [https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3642442/]

Most of the therapeutic properties of Black Cumin seed are due to the presence of Thymoquinone which is a major bioactive component (30%-48%) of the essential oil

TRADITIONAL USES:

Black Cumin “stimulates the body’s energy” and helps recover from fatigue and “disspiritedness”

Its immune system boosting properties serve as a natural, safe way to build resistance against illness

Wellness mama: Black Seed Oil Uses & Benefits There are so many simple natural remedies with a long history of use that have been largely forgotten in modern times. From the health promoting (and hair-growing) properties of castor oil to the natural remedy uses for Apple Cider Vinegar, remedies found in nature have an important place in maintaining health. One of those is Black Seed Oil.

Black Cumin Seed Oil (also often called Black Coriander Oil or simply Black Oil) comes from the Nigella Sativa plant that is native to Asia. Recent studies on this incredibly powerful seed oil show it may be helpful in combating super bugs like MRSA or h.pylori and in cancer patients.

The plant is technically part of the buttercup family and has small, black, crescent shaped seeds. Historical accounts of Black Seed use date back as far as the times of King Tut in Ancient Egypt. Cleopatra reportedly used black cumin seed oil for beautiful hair and skin and Hippocrates was fond of using it for digestive troubles.

Its active compounds, crystalline nigellone and thymoquinone, are the most studied, but it also contains: myristic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid, palmitoleic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, arachidonic acid, proteins and vitamins B1, B2,B3, calcium, folate, iron, copper, zinc and phosphorous.

Studies have also shown that black seed oil can be useful for:

Asthma & Allergies

Eczema and Psoriasis

Digestion

Candida and Fungus

Cancers

Heart Health

MRSA and Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)

Immune Health

Problems with Seed Oils

There can be problems with any vegetable or seed oil, including black cumin seed oil if it isn’t extracted, processed or packaged correctly. It can easily go rancid if any of these factors are not correct and it is also important that the oil is stored in a dark, glass bottle (preferably miron glass).

Black Cumin Seed Oil: What to Look For

Black cumin seed oil is the most absorbable and concentrated form, and from my research, the most effective way to consume black seeds. It is just important to make sure that it is from a quality source and preferably:

Organic
Pure pressed without chemical extraction
Contains no additives or diluting oils
Protected from rancidity by high quality light and air protective glass

This is the one I use [http://www.perfectpressoils.com/black-cumin-oil/?AFFID=196514 Genie in a Bottle] because it is the only one I’ve found that meets all of those criteria. I even called the company and interviewed their founder to make sure that the oil met my standards. Black cumin seed oil is simply a food product that contains some concentrated compounds that may be protective of health. Just as with any food, make sure that whatever brand you use is high quality and free from harmful additives. There are some other great options, though even places like Mountain Rose Herbs, where I get the majority of my natural ingredients, don’t use the highest quality glass to protect the oil from rancidity.

How I Use Black Seed Oil

I take a teaspoon of this oil straight a couple times a day. It works great to add a teaspoon or so to an oil cleansing blend, I’ve also experimented with adding it to lotions, shampoos and hair detox, and skin products with great results and I’ll be sharing those recipes soon!

Examine.com: Nigella sativa When looking at the human evidence in particular, nigella sativa appears to have a general health protective effect of a very small magnitude. It is able to reduce triglycerides and glucose when elevated and can normalize cholesterol metabolism (although not HDL-C) as well, but the amount of benefit it confers is too small for it to be considered a good intervention. As a general antiinflammatory agent (such as its usage in rheumatoid arthritis) it also seems modestly effective.

It does appear to have more promise as an immune booster (no evidence on rates of sickness, but it appears to increase the ability of macrophages to attack invaders) and an anti-allergic compound (with efficacy against allergic rhinitus, asthma, and eczema). One study that used nigella sativa alongside a proton pump inhibitor noted that the seed extract was potently anti-bacterial against heliobacter pylori with a comparable potency to the reference drugs used.

Although much more evidence is needed on this last claim, in men with central obesity the seeds have been noted to greatly improve subjective symptoms of obesity. Symptoms such as loss of libido (affected 84% of men), forgetfulness (89%), high appetite (73%), aches and arthalgia (74%), sleeplessness (54%), and laziness (74%) amongst others were noted to be outright abolished despite no changes in placebo.

Topical Black Seed Oil Beats Tylenol For Pain Relief in Osteoarthritis GreenMedInfo Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder

The tiny black seed strikes again! Even orally administered Tylenol can't compete with the topical application of this potent healing oil to reduce symptoms of one of the most common health complaints of our time.

Recently, over-the-counter "pain killing" drugs like ibuprofen and Tylenol have been found to have a battery of serious adverse side effects, some even life-threatening. Even aspirin, commonly believed to be a life-saving cardioprotective agent, has come under scrutiny as perhaps doing far more harm than good. Even more astounding is the recent discovery that some of these drugs have soul-numbing properties not unlike psychotropic medications.

Due to the growing concern about both the physical and psychological harms of these pharmaceutical agents, interest in natural, evidence-based alternatives has been exploding. In order to satisfy the demand for scientifically validated alternatives to drugs GreenMedInfo has accumulated hundreds of abstracts on the topic, which can be viewed on our various related database pages, such as Pain, Aspirin Alternatives, and Ibuprofen Alternatives.

Why is Everyone Using NSAIDs and Tylenol?

The reality is that because millions suffer from pain and inflammation on a daily basis, the promise of popping a pill to relieve discomfort is an ever-present temptation. It doesn’t help that the US is one of three countries that permit drug companies and pharmacies are allowed to advertise these medications directly to the consumer through television and other mainstream media channels.

But is it logical to expect a potent chemical to positively alter symptoms that aren’t caused by a lack of that chemical? If poor diet, lifestyle, chemical exposures, and a suboptimal mindset are the basis of most chronic health issues, then shouldn’t the focus be on addressing and reversing these underlying variables instead? This would be the goal of so-called “root cause resolution” medicine. Instead, palliative medicine -- where the goal is to suppress symptoms -- is the default approach; but it’s not sustainable and the collateral damage to one’s health is often not worth the risk of the intervention.

When Food (Applied Topically) Is More Powerful Than Pharmaceutical Medicine

A recent clinical trial entitled, “Effect of Topical Application of Nigella Sativa Oil and Oral Acetaminophen on Pain in Elderly with Knee Osteoarthritis: A Crossover Clinical Trial,” compared topical black seed oil with oral Tylenol on pain in elderly osteoarthritis patients.

Study participants were divided into two groups of 10:

One group received 1 milliliter of black seed oil applied on the knee joint 3 times a day every 8 hours for 3 weeks.

One group was given 1 tablet of 325 mg acetaminophen also 3 times a day every 8 hours for 3 weeks.

This study was performed on 40 elderly patients, average age 77, 18 (45%) men and 22 (55%) women.

The criteria for inclusion in the study included the following common symptoms related to knee osteoarthritis:

"Age over 65 years diagnosis of knee osteoarthritis, according to American College Rheumatology diagnostic criteria, included 1) knee pain on most days of the last month; 2) crepitus (joint sound in active motion); 3) morning stiffness less than 30 minutes; and 4) inflation in the examination of the knee bone, respectively (15).”

The promising results of the intervention were reported as follows:

“Study results showed that topical application of Nigella sativa oil and oral acetaminophen reduced pain in elderly with knee osteoarthritis; after using Nigella sativa oil, the reduction of pain was higher (p=0.01).”

The researchers concluded:

“This study showed that topical use of Nigella sativa oil can be more effective in reducing knee pain in elderly patients than acetaminophen, which is typically used as a safe supplement for the elderly.”

What Gives Black Seed Its Remarkable Power?

Unlike pharmaceutical agents which are comprised of either singular chemicals or simple combinations of them, black seed is a complex food which contains a wide range of nutritional and phytochemical components. These all act in concert to produce complex physiological responses in the human body. The study described some of the known constituents of black seed as follows:

"Nigella sativa oil is composed of 30% by weight of p-cymene, which is the most original composition, and 61.48% of the weight is composed of the volatile oil. Nigella sativa seeds contain fat, vitamins, minerals, proteins, essential amino acids, and carbohydrates (8). Nigella sativa seed is a rich source of essential fatty and unsaturated acids. The main unsaturated fatty acids are linoleic acid and oleic acid. There are also other compounds in seeds, such as phospholipids, carotene, calcium, iron, and potassium (9)."

One of the reasons why the pharmaceutical industry and mainstream medicine will not invest in food-based solutions for preventing and treating disease is because these common foods and spices do not lend themselves to being easily understandable, nor patentable. We may never know exactly why the relatively infinitely more complex concentrate of a food like black seed oil produces superior effects when compared to drugs like Tylenol. But knowing how something works should be of secondary importance to the fact that it does work, shouldn't it?

"Mother Nature's formulas are proprietary, but she does not grant patents." ~ Sayer Ji

The primary reason why we will never see conventional physicians prescribing food as medicine is because the FDA defines anything that "prevents, cures, diagnoses or cures disease" as a "drug," and FDA drug approval can cost up to 11 billion dollars per drug. Can you imagine a walnut company investing that much money in order to prove the obvious: namely, that its product has health benefits? Chemicals, on the other hand, are ideal for this kind of commercialization, even if they almost invariably carry debilitating and deadly side effects.

It should also be noted the highly therapeutic ritual of massaging the oil into the knee may have played a significant role in producing the observed positive outcome. Here is the specific method used:

“In the first stage, for the first group about 1 ml Nigella sativa oil was applied on the knee joint three times a day every 8 hours for 1 week. The massaging method was done with the entire palm in a way that continued for 5 minutes, massaged in a clockwise direction at the front and sides of the knee joint. It should be noted that the Nigella sativa oil used was owned by Barij-e-Kashan; for all subjects, it was maintained away from sunlight and at ambient temperature.”

“Leak Proof” your bladder in 1 month… Strengthen your bladder, End sprints to the toilet, And banish the annoying dribble

my name by the way, is Dr. Glenn Rothfeld… I’ve been practicing medicine for over 40 years.

And was named a fellow at Harvard Medical School’s prestigious Channing Laboratory. I created one of the nation’s first courses on natural medicine for Tufts University.

your bladder is a muscle – actually known as the detrusor muscle – and is made of special fibers that can expand and contract. In fact, even the smallest bladder can expand 3, 4, even 5 times its resting size.

Problem is, as we age, the muscle fibers in our bladders change. In short, they lose muscle tone.

And when your bladder loses its elasticity, your storage capacity decreases. Meaning you simply can’t hold as much urine as you used to. As a result, you feel that constant “urge to go”…

Fortunately, thanks to a stunning nutrient, leaks will vanish into thin air… It’s called EQUISETUM, OR HORSETAIL.

And horsetail has a slew of powerful health benefits… It helps strengthen your bones, it supports a healthy immune system – it even keeps your kidney in top-notch shape…

Horsetail contains a very high concentration of silica, a mineral that promotes firmness, strength, and connectivity in the body’s tissues. Most importantly for you, it increases your bladder’s muscle tone making it much STRONGER.

As you may know, your bladder sphincter-valve controls the flow of urine from your bladder.

It opens to let urine out and it squeezes tight to keep urine in.

Think of your bladder valve like a leaky faucet.

At first the leak is just a few drips here and there, but as time goes on…

More and more water starts leaking out.

The same thing happens to our bladder as we age.

This means it can expand and contract the way it did during your younger days… DOUBLING YOUR BLADDER CAPACITY.

Study... That’s a 63% reduction in their frequency in urination.

In fact, leaks due to urgency were cut by 74%.

almost 90% felt it helped with their bladder urgency!

InControl 24 is your personal ticket to freedom, confidence and certainty.

Prostate

Sugar May Cause Prostate Problems One of my readers, I’ll call him Roy, sent me this interesting note the other day.

“Dear Dr. Shallenberger,
“It might sound illogical to you, but the more sugar I consume, the more prostate problems I have. I am 84 years old, and I have experienced this since I was 34. The solution to the problem is not as easy as you might think. If you are a sugar addict, you will start cheating on your diet and gradually get back on sugar. The prostate problem does not begin immediately, so you are deceived into believing that you don’t have that problem anymore. In due time, the prostate problem returns with a vengeance. This makes me wonder how many other health problems are due to excessive sugar, but we never make the connection between it and sugar. I found out by accident that my prostate problem was connected to sugar.”

Roy has the right idea! Sometimes you just have to try different things before you figure out what works for your particular body. So, here’s the thing. I have no idea why his prostate is so sensitive to sugar intake. I have not seen this relationship before. But that is not the point. The point is that we are all different, and as Hippocrates said 2,500 years ago, “One man’s food is another man’s poison.” So, I’m not surprised that sugar would cause this problem. A recent review article on the hazards of eating sugar and refined carbohydrate doesn’t mention prostate problems, but it sure gives a hardy warning about sugar and refined carbohydrates in general.

The author of the article entitled, “A review of excessive sugar metabolism on oral and general health,” has the following to say about sugar. “The first observation about the perils of sugar had to do with dental cavities.” But that is far from all. The author goes on to point out the many studies showing that sugar has also been linked as a major player in virtually every disease there is, including obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, and kidney disease. Maybe now, thanks to Roy, we can add prostate problems to the list? But, where is all this sugar coming from?

Obviously, some of it is coming from sweets and sweet drinks like fruit juice and soda. But a lot of it is hidden in processed foods such as cereals, ketchup, BBQ and other sauces, yogurt, frozen meals, dried fruit, and so forth. But hidden sugars are not the only hidden way we can expose our bodies to too much sugar. The other is carbohydrates in general.

When I am talking about carbohydrate foods, I am primarily talking about fruits, grains, and root vegetables. Most people don’t realize it, but when you eat any of these foods, you are basically eating sugar. That’s because all of these carbohydrates don’t get absorbed into the body until your digestive system breaks them down into sugar. So, basically, eating them has the same effects as eating sugar.

So, be careful about sugar and carbohydrates in general. And if you have any kind of medical problem, do what Roy did, and eliminate them from your diet for 30 days. The odds are halfway good that your problem will go away.

Prevention: Tart Cherries For Pain Relief They reduce inflammation, fight cancer, and help you sleep

They might not be as naturally sweet as their dark-purple counterparts, but tart cherries (a.k.a. sour cherries) are well worth biting into if you suffer from pain, swelling, or sleeplessness.

Oregon Health and Science University researchers found that women who drank tart cherry juice twice daily for three weeks had significantly less inflammation. That same beverage also relieved joint pain in some patients with knee osteoarthritis, according to research published in the journal Osteoarthritis and Cartilage. (Drinking tart cherry juice after a tough workout can also help your muscles recover faster.)

Meanwhile, tart cherries are a dream come true for insomniacs: Louisiana State University researchers found that subjects who drank tart cherry juice logged an average of 84 more minutes of sleep each night compared to those who sipped a placebo. Tart cherries are naturally rich in melatonin (the hormone responsible for sleepiness) and tryptophan, an amino acid the body uses to create even more melatonin.

Did we mention that this superfruit also fights gout? Let’s just call that the cherry on top.

HOW TO PREPARE TART CHERRIES:
Mix them with yogurt, blend them into smoothies, or pick up a bottle of tart cherry juice for sipping.

Cherry Juice to Relieve Joint Pain? I recently read that taking 2,000 mg of cherry concentrate provides more pain relief than aspirin and other pain killers. Could this be true? Are there any side effects of using cherry juice? Dr. Weil.

Some scientific evidence does suggest that drinking cherry juice or eating tart (pie) cherries in season can help relieve muscle pain, arthritis pain and the pain of gout as well as – or better than – aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs. The anthocyanins that give tart cherries their color are likely responsible for their anti-inflammatory, pain-killing effect.

Cherries haven’t been widely researched for their effect on pain, but the few studies that have been 'e appear promising. In 2010, investigators at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) tested cherry juice against a placebo among athletes preparing to run the 197-mile relay race from Mount Hood to Seaside, OR. The participants drank 10.5 ounces of cherry juice or a placebo twice a day for seven days prior to the race and the same amount every eight hours on the day of the race. None of them were taking any other pain relievers. After the race, the runners who drank the cherry juice reported less pain and faster muscle strength recovery than those who received the placebo.

In 2006, British researchers reported results of a study in which college-age men drank a blend of cherry and apple juice or a placebo twice a day for eight consecutive days. On day four, those who drank the cherry-apple juice mix reported less pain after performing a series of intensive arm exercises than those who drank the placebo. Moreover, the men who drank the juice reported that their pain peaked at 24 hours, while in the placebo group, pain continued to increase for two days after the workout. The study appears in the August, 2006, issue of the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

One of the earliest investigations of the effect of cherries on pain took place at Michigan State University. Researchers said their findings suggested that the equivalent of 20 tart cherries inhibited the enzymes Cox-1 and Cox-2, which are the targets of anti-inflammatory drugs, and did so at doses much lower than a usual dose of aspirin.

While these results are compelling, we '’t yet have enough evidence to recommend drinking cherry juice as a sole or primary treatment for arthritis, gout, and muscle pain. So far, no study has directly compared the pain-relieving effects of cherry juice to those of aspirin or ibuprofen.

While anti-inflammatory drugs do have serious drawbacks – regular use can lead to stomach problems and internal bleeding – drinking two bottles of natural cherry juice daily can lead to diarrhea and upset stomach. We '’t know whether cherry juice concentrate would have these effects.

Also, bear in mind that cherry juice isn’t calorie-free. One eight-to-10-ounce bottle of juice is the caloric equivalent of consuming three servings of fruit, with all the sugar and none of the fiber.

The Recommended Amount of Tart Cherry Juice You Should Drink Tart cherry juice promises multiple health benefits, including reduced muscle soreness post-workout, alleviation of arthritis pain and improved sleep. Tart cherries contain compounds, including antioxidants and melatonin, which give them their powerful anti-inflammatory and soporific powers. Research is inconclusive on the positive effects of the juice or how much you need to consume to get the desired results, though. Before adding it to your diet, be aware that an 8-ounce serving contains up to 140 calories and 25 grams of sugar. These excess calories may cause weight gain over time

The Side Effects of Tart Cherry Juice Tart cherry juice gets its bitter taste from the antioxidants that are responsible for its anti-inflammatory effects, reports Oregon Health and Science University. The juice has been shown to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with exercise as well as the chronic inflammation of arthritis. There are potential side-effects of drinking tart cherry juice, but they may be less dangerous than over-the-counter medications typically used to relieve inflammation.

Researchers who published a study in the “Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition” gave long-distance runners 355 milliliters – roughly 12 ounces -- of the juice twice daily during the week leading up to a strenuous running event. Cherry juice drinkers had significantly less pain after the race than those who drank a placebo, according to the 2010 article. Tart cherry juice is also effective in reducing chronic inflammation, as reported in the “Journal of Food Studies” in 2012. Women with osteoarthritis who drank two 10.5-ounce bottles of the juice for 21 days saw a significant reduction in C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation in the blood.

The Sour Side

Regular use of anti-inflammatory medications, such as aspirin, can cause kidney damage, heart failure and gastrointestinal problems, according to Oregon Health and Science University.

Potential side-effects of tart cherry juice include abdominal discomfort and diarrhea, blamed on its relatively high sorbitol content, according to Baylor College of Medicine. The juice may also affect your weight: A 1-cup serving of tart cherry juice contains 140 calories, according to the Cherry Marketing Institute.

Can Tart Cherry Juice Replace NSAIDs to Relieve Pain and Reduce Inflammation for Runners? Tart cherry juice has gained much attention recently, among athletes and the general public, for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

Recent research has shown that tart cherry juice may be just as effective, if not more effective, than popular drugs that are most commonly used to treat inflammation.

Distance runners should be especially interested in tart cherry juice for its potential to reduce muscle soreness and shorten recovery time after long, hard endurance runs.

Endurance athletes often turn to ibuprofen or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin and naproxen, before, during, and after competition in order to relieve the pain and allow the body to work harder and longer. NSAIDs work to relieve pain by decreasing the formation of prostaglandins, which act as messenger molecules in inflammation, through the inhibition of the enzyme cyclooxygenase.

Cyclooxygenase has two isoenzymes (COX-1 and COX-2) that are non-selectively inhibited by NSAIDs, meaning that if they inhibit one enzyme, they inhibit the others as well.

COX-2 – The COX-2 enzyme is an important target for NSAIDs and other pain-relieving remedies as it is the enzyme that plays a role in inflammation. Inhibition of COX-2 results in the pain-relieving effects of NSAIDs.

COX-1 – COX-1 is also responsible for forming prostaglandins but these are protective prostaglandins that exist at the stomach lining. When COX-1 is inhibited and these prostaglandin levels are lowered, the stomach lining can begin to erode itself causing stomach ulcers and bleeding.

Furthermore, long-term use of NSAIDs may also increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, and kidney failure. These are undesirable side effects that may result from the chronic use of NSAIDs, therefore making it important to find alternatives for pain relief and prevention of inflammation.

Tart cherry science

Tart cherries contain high levels of flavonoids and anthocyanins that have anti-inflammatory properties that also work through the inhibition of COX enzymes. The antioxidant activities of these phytochemicals can help reverse oxidative damage resulting from strenuous exercise.

Recent research has examined the effect that tart cherry juice consumption has on makers of inflammation and oxidative stress, as well on muscle pain and other symptoms of acute muscle damage resulting from exercise.

Earlier studies have shown that the consumption of cherries, about 45 per day, effectively reduces circulating concentrations of inflammatory markers in healthy men and women. Given this knowledge, exercise scientists have sought to discover if consuming cherries before and after exercise can prevent or diminish the symptoms of muscle damage that often result from inflammation.

The first of these studies (Connolly et al.) was conducted with a small group of male college students and involved a bout of single-arm bicep curls at maximal resistance. Subjects were randomly assigned to drink cherry juice or placebo twice a day for four days before (including the day of) and four days after the exercise bout.

Pain, muscle tenderness, range of motion and strength were assessed on each of the four days following the exercise bout and while range of motion and muscle tenderness were no different between cherry juice and placebo, it did appear that cherry juice effectively reduced pain and loss of strength.

As cure for muscle damage and pain

In a subsequent study, Kuehl set out to determine cherry juice could also be effective at reducing the muscle damage and pain associated with running. His study involved runners participating in the strenuous Hood to Coast relay in Oregon.

In this study, teams participating in the relay were randomly assigned to drink tart cherry juice or a placebo cherry drink twice a day for the seven days prior to the race and twice a day on race day. Following the race participants rated their pain and reported their satisfaction with the drink they were given and its ability to relieve pain.

All participants throughout both groups reported more pain after the race than prior to the race, however participants who drank the cherry juice reported a significantly smaller increase in pain compared to the placebo group.

Supporting studies

The final study reviewed here, conducted by Howaston et al., involved runners in the 2008 Lon' Marathon. In this study researchers measured markers of muscle damage, inflammation, and oxidative stress in order to determine if results seen in the studies of Connolly and Kuehl could be explained by any particular mechanisms of tart cherry juice supplementation.

Like in Connolly’s study, the cherry juice group saw a more rapid return of strength to the muscles exercised compared to the placebo group despite no differences in the blood markers measured or muscle soreness. However blood makers of inflammation were significantly less elevated in the cherry juice group and total antioxidant capacity was increased while oxidative stress was decreased when compared to the placebo.

Other health benefits

Cherries are a good source of melatonin, which helps us get better sleep by regulating our internal clocks.

The antioxidant components of cherries help boost the immune system, can protect against heart disease and certain cancers, and can be protective against brain aging.

Cherry juice is also being extensively researched for therapeutic roles in the treatment of gout and inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia.

The types of cherries used in the research studies are tart Montmorency cherries. The drinks prepared used reconstituted cherry extract that provided the equivalent of about 45-50 cherries per drink and 90-100 cherries total per day.

You can find 100% tart cherry juice in some stores and it is also available online in either juice form or concentrate form. You want to be sure of what you have so that you know how much you need to take. Juice blends will often require 8 oz servings while a serving of the concentrate may only be about 1 oz or 2 tbsp.

Finally it should be noted that all study protocols called for a “loading” period of at least 4 days where subjects consumed the cherry juice twice a day. This allowed the body to build up and increase the antioxidant level prior to the exercise bout.

Like just about any other therapy, cherry juice may not work for everyone. But if you are starting a new exercise routine or entering the intense cycle of your season, it may be worth trying out cherry juice as a safer and perhaps more effective means of enhancing your recovery. NSAIDs do not need to be avoided altogether; they are still indicated for short-term use for reducing inflammation for injuries but shouldn’t be used chronically for pain reduction resulting simply from a hard workout.

How to Use Cherry Juice for Your Joint Pain Whoever said “Growing older isn’t for sissies!” probably had arthritis. Although it sometimes strikes younger people, the constant ache in knees and hips can make it hard to keep moving. Pain in the shoulders, arms and hands can interfere with important activities like cooking or playing music.

Unfortunately, the drugs that doctors generally recommend for arthritis pain (NSAIDs like diclofenac, ibuprofen or naproxen) carry unpleasant side effects such as bleeding ulcers and heart attacks. Simple remedies might be very welcome. Could you use cherry juice for your joint pain?

How to Use Cherry Juice for Joint Pain:

Four ounces of tart cherry juice in the morning has alleviated the arthritis pain that I used to have in my hands. I’ve been doing this for the last two years.

I’ve recommended it to many people. Some '’t experience relief from it, but many do. One friend uses cherry juice at bedtime to help her fall asleep.

Those who are interested in the powdered Montmorency cherries can also purchase the product used in the study, CherryPURE® [https://www.shorelinefruit.com/11/nutraceuticals]. The dose was 480 mg/day. We have no affiliation with Shoreline Fruit, the makers of this cherry concentrate.

Superhuman energy secret shocks reporters Discover how this long-hidden secret could help save you from that dog-tired, “getting older” feeling in just 29 days

In fact one world-renowned doctor used this discovery to create the ultimate “fountain of youth” formula.

His name is Dr. Mark Stengler, and his protocol can help you...

Feel YOUNGER and REVITALIZED...
Experience better energy levels throughout the day...
Recharge your muscles...
Keep your heart pumping strong...your blood flowing smoothly...and your mind working like a super-computer...
And much more.

Nature’s “rocket fuel” combination that adds power to every cell in your body...

Plus the incredible longevity nutrient that 60 Minutes called “the closest thing we’ve got to a real fountain of youth”...

And a powerful combination of antioxidants known as “the Fab Five,” to help keep your cells strong for life.

This youth-restoring formula is called REVITALIZE Q PLUS

Without it, your cells could die. Coenzyme Q10, and it works by helping your cells make energy, which is called ATP.

when your body’s low on CoQ10, you’ll feel it first in your hard-working muscles...including your heart. That’s what makes you exhausted down to your very core.

we have stacks of studies—literally stacks of them going back 56 years—showing that CoQ10 can do amazing things. You simply cannot make energy without it.

You need the “Coenzyme Combo.”

It’s a trio of coenzymes and nutrients to help you make, absorb and use CoQ10.

Think of it like super-absorbable rocket fuel that adds power to every cell in your body.

another coenzyme called PLP, a special form of vitamin B6.

Your body MUST HAVE PLP in order to make CoQ10.

But good luck finding it...Most supplement makers ignore this incredible fact! Dr. Stengler’s formula is the only one I know of that has both of these coenzymes.

BioPerine’s entire job is to help you absorb CoQ10. In fact, one study done by the manufacturers found that people who took BioPerine with CoQ10 had up to 32% more CoQ10 in their bloodstream than those who took CoQ10 alone.

Research shows that with each passing year, it gets harder for you to make CoQ10 and even harder to use it, too.

Statin drugs drain CoQ10 right out of your body...and can take your energy and strength with it.

Dr. Stengler added one more incredible breakthrough to his Coenzyme Combo: It’s an extract called resveratrol—and even if you’ve heard of it before, I guarantee you haven’t heard the whole shocking truth.

You see, the most popular way to get resveratrol is from red wine. ..you’d have to guzzle GALLONS of it every day to really make a difference in your genes.

to harness its rejuvenating power. It’s a pretty, flowering Japanese plant with an ugly name—knotweed.

Studies suggest that the resveratrol in knotweed is a powerful antidote to oxidative stress—which is key in helping to keep your heart strong and your cells healthy.

Resveratrol also may help boost circulation to the brain, to help you stay razor-sharp and on top of your game.

With RevitalizeQ Plus, you get the “everyday dose” of resveratrol that Dr. Stengler recommends—100 milligrams.

It’s the same amount you’d get from drinking up to 67 bottles of red wine. But in just two small capsules a day, it’s a lot more realistic!

With every dose, you also get a blend of age-fighting nutrients that he recommends to all of his patients.

Here at the office, we call it the “Fab Five” of free radical fighters. It includes...

Acai berry – a Brazilian “power fruit” and potential immune supporter
Grape seed – which may support free-flowing circulation and healthy blood vessels
Pomegranate – an antioxidant heavy-hitter that’s been shown to be more powerful than green tea
Quercetin – a flower extract that combats oxidation right down to the cellular level
And Turmeric – an ancient free radical fighter to help you defy aging in all key areas of your body

Advanced Blood Sugar Formula

Liver Conversion of Sugar Slows as We Age Increasing Diabetes Risk

Insulin's Evil Twin This overlooked hormone might be the real reason you still struggle with out-of-control blood sugar. But most doctors (even alternative doctors) ignore it completely.

the #1 overlooked blood sugar hormone in your body is called glucagon. And this critical hormone may be the real reason you still struggle with your blood sugar.

You see, while insulin lowers blood sugar, glucagon raises it. So you need a healthy balance of both hormones to keep your blood sugar in check.

To fight this sudden jump in blood sugar, your pancreas pumps out more and more insulin. That forces excess blood sugar into your liver for storage. And it gets your blood sugar under control—for a little while.

Unfortunately, glucagon can dump that stored sugar right back into your bloodstream. And that starts the whole vicious cycle all over again.

Your blood sugar skyrockets. Your pancreas makes more insulin to get your levels down. And then glucagon shoots your blood sugar right back up again!

Over time, this back-and-forth cycle can cause your insulin-producing beta cells to wear down...burn out...and even die. When that happens, your body can't make insulin at all.

And here's the worst part: Even as your insulin levels plummet, your glucagon levels can stay sky-high.

My name is Dr. Janet Zand. I'm a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and a Board Certified Acupuncturist. For over 25 years, I've been helping people find natural solutions to their blood sugar worries.

The secret to this amazing breakthrough is a 5,000-year-old Chinese nutrient. For centuries, this nutrient was used to treat infections and fight inflammation. But recently, modern medical science discovered that it can have a powerful impact on your blood sugar, too!

So what is this amazing nutrient? It's called BERBERINE. And it's one of the most powerful blood sugar breakthroughs I've ever seen.

The best part? This ancient nutrient works fast. Patients started seeing improvements in just 7 days. After 14 days, their blood sugar dropped by up to 38 points. And their levels stayed steady for the rest of the study.

First, berberine helps lower glucagon levels. Studies show it increases levels of a special hormone called GLP-1.4 GLP-1 is a sort of "off switch" for glucagon production.

That stops your liver from dumping excess sugar into your bloodstream. And it transforms glucagon from insulin's "evil twin" into a powerful partner in maintaining healthy blood sugar.

Second, berberine actually helps stop blood sugar spikes before they start. How? By slowing down carbohydrate digestion.5 That helps avoid any big spikes in your glucose levels.

Finally, berberine promotes healthy insulin levels.6 At the same time it lowers glucagon, it signals your pancreas to start producing just the right amount of insulin—not too much and not too little.

Berberine's ability to protect you from insulin's "evil twin" can make a big difference in your blood sugar. And I want to make sure everyone has access to this amazing breakthrough.

I added a special blend of herbs and nutrients to this powerful berberine extract. Together, these ingredients promote optimal glucagon and insulin levels. They support healthy blood sugar. They can even help protect you from dangerous complications.

Top Doctor: New Discovery Makes Foot Calluses "Vanish"

Dr. David Watts, a world-renowned plastic surgeon and professor at Johns Hopkins Medical School, says his team has discovered a new way to treat damaged feet that could change the way we view skin health forever.

"If you've ever marched in standard issue boots, you know about foot pain. That's actually the most common reason we pull guys out of combat — not wounds or injuries, but foot pain and infections."

So Dr. Watts created a new technique for dealing with foot problems — one that begins healing feet in as little as 5 minutes.

Users have been stunned by the results, saying that after using this method for just a few weeks, foot pain is dramatically reduced and calluses disappear almost completely.

Additionally, it also makes feet appear years younger…amazing news for the millions of American men and women who have worn cramped, uncomfortbale shoes for years and developed unsightly corns and calluses.

And the best part? Anyone can do it…right in their own home.

Video on Low Energy Book: Dr. Steven Gundry's Diet Evolution. All supplements do is make expensive urine. In 6 mos. Big Ed cleared out half his artery blockages. Just lost weight and took a bunch of supplements. Phytochemicals powerful nutrients to keep heart cells from dying. They got real results without the side effects found in drugs. The secret building block of bio-energy.

The 3 superfoods you should never eat: Soy products-- they are linked to digestive problems, immune-system breakdowns, cognitive decline, and reproductive disorders, cancer and heart disease. It is full of phyto-estrogen: disrupts your adrenile gland, thyroid gland. For men, estrogen affects your body shape, your weight, your sex drive. Estrogen is the hormone which tells your body to STORE FAT.

Soy contains goitrogens, which disrupts your thyroid function. It drains your vitality/energy. Hypothyroidism = weight gain and low energy.

Soy is the #1 food to cut out of your diet being it is draining your body of energy.

Toxic superfood #2: Wheatgrass. Humans cannot digest grass. Has powerful plant toxins which will make you sick. When a dog wants to throw up, it eats grass.

Toxic superfood #3: Goji berries. No proof that goji berries do any of the things claimed. In 2006 the FDA warned two goji berry merchants to quit making unsubstantiated health claims. They are actually harmful. Avoid them because they are a member of the nightshade family.

They are extremely high in a very dangerous kind of protein called LECTINS, powerful toxic allergens which are in many of the foods you eat. Lectins cause far more dangerous allergic reactions than gluten. They completely disrupt your immune system and prevent your body from healing itself. Worse, they break through your intestinal barrier and cause leaky gut syndrome. Lectins also weaken your blood vessels, a conditionn called endothelial dysfuntion. This condition has been linked to hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and septic shock.

Clinical study: Removed patients from all foods with lectins and gave supplements high in polyphenols. Created a 72% decrease in endothelial dysfuntion. A massive improvement in blood vessel function. The markers for cardiovascular disease decreased in 100% of the participants.

Conclusions:

1. Lectins are bad news; avoid them as much as possible.
It's almost impossible to cut out lectins completely. They're in wheat grains, nuts, eggplant, tomatoes, poatoes and peppers. That's why the second things is so important.

2. Polyphenols are THE MOST IMPORTANT nutrient you are NOT getting in your diet. You need to be getting as much of them as possible.

Where did I get the idea to develop a polyphenol blend for my study?

It goes back to Big Ed. What Ed was eating--odd fruits and supplements--all had one thing in common: polyphenols. He was eating pomegranates, blueberries, mulberries and aronia cherries. Dark berries are super dense with polyphenols: very powerful energy boosters.

Polyphenols don't just heal your heart. They actually help heal your body in a vast number of ways:

-boosting metabolic function
-fighting inflammation in every part of your body
-reducing visible signs of aging
-helping to lower cholesterol
-regulating your blood sugar levels
-boosting your immune system
-reducing joint pain
-reducing digestive discomfort
-keeping your skin healthy and firm
-activating anti-aging genes
-most important, they boost your metabolism and accelerate your body's production of energy

It's not normal for your energy levels to decline as you age. Ancient people had a lot more energy because meat was only 10% of their diet. The rest was leafy greens, roots, fruits and nuts. And lots and lots of berries.

Modern research has found that plant polyphenols are almost a "perfect" energy nutrient for the human body. And they are extremely effective a helping to control your blood glucose levels.

Your blood glucose metabolism... that's your body's source of energy.

10,000 years ago we invented agriculture and started eating barley and wheat. This was terrible for human beings. Because your body converts the carbs from grains into fat, not energy.

Plant polyphenols actually help your body BURN fat, and they are easier to digest than grans or starches.

Americans have such energy problems because we are eating empty carbs that convert straight to fat instead of energy. And we're missing the thing we are really supposed to be eating: polyphenols.

VITAL REDS is the product. You can expect the following from taking just one glass of Vital Reds per day:

-enhanced bio-energy, which keeps your running all day long
-vastly improved digestion
-the feeling of pure energy when you are metabolizing food better
-much less gas and bloating after meals

Gundry MD Vital Reds reviews:

http://www.highya.com/vital-reds-by-gundry-md-reviews

As far as Vital Reds’ metabolic blend, there doesn’t seem to be enough clinical evidence to state with any certainly that these ingredients will boost your metabolism or help regulate your weight in any meaningful way.

Finally, they HighYa team has written extensively about probiotics over the years, which are clinically proven to treat IBS-related symptoms, bloating, and gassiness; boost energy, and improve immune response. there weren’t any online customer reviews for Vital Reds at the time of our research.

http://www.reviewopedia.com/dr-steven-gundry-reviews

Unfortunately there are very few reviews available for this website and their products at this time, and those that are available are somewhat mixed in tone, though it would be fair to say that they seem generally positive for the most part.

Lemon/Lime Water

See Lemon, Lime page

My Liver Detox LEMON JUICE: The juice of half a lemon in hot water first thing in the morning is a time-honoured way to start the day, and is an excellent wake up call for the liver. The sourness of lemons triggers nerve and hormone activation to the liver and digestive system. Very helpful for those who suffer from sluggish bowels.

13 surprising home remedies for acid reflux

Start your day with a cup of warm water and fresh lemon juice. “By drinking this on an empty stomach 15 to 20 minutes before eating anything else, the body can naturally balance out its acid levels. It's a great digestive aid and is safe for all users,” says Rebekah Fedrowitz, an applied holistic nutritionist.

The Benefits of Lemon Water

Helps Digestion. The biggest lemon water benefit may be from the temperature of the water and not even the added lemon. Drinking any water, or especially warm water, first thing in the morning can help flush the digestive system and rehydrate the body.






Cannabis

Cannabis: A Lost History so why is it banned?

Cannabis, better known as marijuana, has been used for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. Historical remnants from all around the world reveal the importance of cannabis in medicine and spirituality

The earliest written references to cannabis are found in the Chinese Materia Medica, written by Shen Nung around 2800 B.C. Nung documented 100 conditions that responded well to cannabis, including gout and rheumatism

For thousands of years, cannabis remained one of the 50 essential plants used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Vedas, the sacred text of India, also lists cannabis as one of five sacred plants

The ancient Egyptians, Persians and Greeks also used cannabis in a variety of ways, including medicinally and for spiritual upliftment

The marijuana plant contains more than 60 different cannabinoids. Two primary ones are CBD and THC. Cannabinoids interact with your body by way of naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes throughout your body

In the U.S., the prohibition of marijuana began to turn in 1996 when California became the first state to legalize medical cannabis. Since then, many others have followed. In 2012, Colorado and Washington state became the first states to legalize its recreational use. Today, the majority of Americans support cannabis either as a medicine, for recreational use, or both. Surveys show at least 4 in 10 Americans have tried marijuana, while nearly 60 percent support full legalization.

The American history of cannabis goes back to our Founding Fathers, who cultivated the plant for industrial purposes. George Washington, for example, is said to have grown more than 100 hemp plants at his home in Mount Vernon, Virginia.4 Cannabis is called hemp when being used for its fibers, which are extracted from the stem and constructed into rope, clothing and paper.

Hemp plants are low in tetrahydrocannabinols (THC) levels and therefore do not get you high. During the 17th century, hemp was viewed as an important cash crop. It was used for rope by navies around the world, and as a thick durable linen ideal for clothing and packaging heavy materials. Hemp seed oil was used in soaps, paints and varnishes.

The battle that has raged over marijuana is a long and arduous one. You can read a brief history of marijuana prohibition in the Huffington Post.5 Still, movements to legalize marijuana have persisted throughout, starting as early as 1973, when Oregon became the first state to decriminalize cannabis. The most successful movement to date, and the one that produced the first legal marijuana market in decades, is the medical marijuana movement.

Medical cannabis is now legal in 30 U.S. states,6,7 the majority of which allow limited use of medical marijuana under certain medical circumstances, although some limit medical cannabis to oils or pills only. Eight states have legalized it for recreational use.

Big Pharma Takes Aim at CBD

Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, the drug industry is now trying to turn CBD oil into a drug, and hence illegal for sale as a supplement.20 Showing promise for a wide range of ailments, the drug industry sees cannabis as major competition, and rightfully so. June 25, 2018, GW Pharmaceuticals became the first company to gain FDA approval for a CBD-based drug

FDA Cracks Down on CBD Supplements

As expected, with its approval of the first CBD drug, the FDA has increased its scrutiny of companies making CBD extracts.

The warning letters26 also rejected claims that CBD oil can be classified as dietary supplements since Investigational New Drug (IND) applications have been submitted for the CBD-containing drugs Sativex and Epidiolex. This suggests the agency is not just aiming to clean up the cannabis industry’s propensity to make illegal claims; it also raises concerns that the legality of all CBD products is in question now that at least one CBD-containing drug has been approved.

Many CBD Products Are Mislabeled

The FDA scrutiny is not entirely unwarranted, however. A November 2017 study27 in JAMA found only 30 percent of CBD extracts sold online accurately list the amounts of cannabinoids on the label. And, while CBD is very safe, accuracy is still of utmost importance.

The FDA and DEA will also use information like this to push CBD into pharma-only territory.

R Looking for an affordable alternative~
I have to say it works, I am honestly baffled by it. My the color and smell I really wasn't sure about the purity of the product. I went to (I have cervical dystonia) my massage therapist last week, and she said it was like massaging a completely different body. The fascia had loosened up so much that she was able to do a very deep tissue massage and it felt pain free.

This is my first order of Bone Broth from Healthy Body Organics. I have been using the Ancient Nutrition brand for a while. I am eager to see how a more affordable brand works for me and my needs. I have cervical dystonia and have found bone broth, especially chicken helps with the tight muscles and the problems with my fascia.

Upon opening the package there is some immediate differences. The color is almost bleach white looking and a peculiar smell. The smell is neither good or bad, the only thing that comes to mind is raw egg white smell?

The Ancient Nutrition is darker caramel colored and smells rich and hearty. The consistency is also different, the Ancient Nutrition is very finely milled and will pack when pressed. This brand is grainy like and moves exactly like powdered milk. I couldn't taste any notable flavor, which the Ancient Nutrition one has a flavor even though it says unflavored.

I did ask the question to the about how long the bones were cooked, their response as quoted "The bones are slow roasted and then slow boiled for several days." I will try this out for a month and see if it provides the same benefits and update my feedback later on. See update at top.

R I have only been using this product for a short time but love that I am getting the nutrients into my body so that it can heal. I have heard and read that bone broth is very healing but it seems better to purchase a good brand/source than to make it on my own. I can't imagine trying to get tons of free range, organic, healthy grass fed, you name the type, I'm not quite sure right now and then cooking these and stinking up my house for hours.

I like this much better. I had also read that the chicken cartilage is more nutritious than beef or pork so I am very glad to have found this source.

I would recommend this to others looking to get the benefits of bone broth, one of them being collagen and all the amino acids making a protein. It is packaged in a heavy tin-cellophane bag as is shown in one of the pictures. It is labeled very well with directions on how to use. I am very happy with my purchase.

R I've been looking for this for more than a decade!!

I had gastric surgery years ago and the doctors drill into you over and over again about getting enough protein. Later I began rigorous weight training so nutrition and protein intake became even more important. The problem was (and still is) that so many protein supplements are sweet and I am sick of them. Most recently I had colon surgery and had complications which meant even more dietary restrictions including no sweeteners at all.

I found unflavored whey based protein long ago but it doesn't get along with heat so it can be added to something warm, but not hot. That made it difficult to amp up the protein in something like a soup or stew.

This stuff is so good it scares me. (Like I'm going to find out it's actually soylent green) It has almost no flavor or odor and what little there is is neutral. First thing I did was get a spoon and put it in my mouth for a taste. nada. It does not get gooey like gelatin. It can take heat. I usually have coffee with a little cream and can add a full serving of this to a cup of coffee and not notice. I haven't tried it in anything cold yet but it seems to dissolve easily so if there was an issue with cold temps... I would just dissolve it in something warm and then add it to whatever was cold.

R I bought this because I read bone broth is good for inflammation (a friend of mine says it’s good for your teeth as well). I had a bad car accident in 2011, the doctors had me on Morphine, Cymbalta, Lyrica, muscle relaxers, Valium among other drugs. I thought what do I have to loose by trying something natural? This is my third or forth order. I’m proud to say I don’t take ANY of the drugs listed above anymore.

I put this in a smoothie every morning along with spinach, protein powder, peanut butter, strawberries and pineapple, another anti-inflammatory and I feel so much better.

R This stuff is absolutely fantastic. I cannot say enough good things about it. I take one heaping tablespoon every morning in my English Breakfast tea. It hardly has any flavor and adds a little creaminess. Simple. But the benefit is profound! Within a half hour, any achiness I have in my hips, joints, etc. completely goes away. It almost balances my body. I will never be without this and have traveled out of the country with it as well! The price is very reasonable for what you get. I highly recommend this and will never stop taking it. I am very thankful there's a company making this; it is easy to travel with.

Turmeric

How Fermentation Turns Ordinary Turmeric Into Super-Turmeric Mercola: This ancient botanical can help spice up your life 14 different ways, from your cells to your skin to your comfortable and flexible movement.* Discover the many wonders awaiting you when you try this dazzling fermented, underground stem.

One profound benefit of these herbs lies in their nutritional content. They’re very low in calories, while being dense in vitamins and minerals.

Many herbs and spices are thermogenic, meaning they naturally support your metabolism to help you burn calories. Plus you feel satisfied sooner, so you eat less.

Studies show that consuming certain herbs and spices before each meal can potentially reduce your caloric intake.

People in India and China have used turmeric for thousands of years. Turmeric continues to be a highly regarded herb in India’s Ayurveda system, recognized as an authoritative source of knowledge and truth in the promotion of natural health.

Today, turmeric is also considered an adaptogen – or botanical that supports your body’s ability to adapt to stress from any source. Adaptogens are valued for their contribution to energy, stamina, endurance, strength, and mental clarity.

On a cellular level, turmeric can assist your cells by helping to neutralize substances that can cause stress and maintaining the cells' integrity when threatened by these stressors.

The most active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which is what also gives turmeric its yellow color. Turmeric is derived from the rhizomes, or underground stems, of the plant Curcuma longa, a member of the ginger family.

Sometimes in the literature and on the internet turmeric and curcumin are used interchangeably, but they are not the same. Curcumin only makes up between 2 and 6 percent of turmeric.

One major difference between the two is whole food turmeric contains all the naturally occurring bioflavonoids, whereas some curcumin products like my Curcumin Advanced is a standardized extract of bioavailable key curcuminoids.

None the less, turmeric has been high on the list for use in Chinese medicine for many years. Here are just some of the research-suggested uses for turmeric:

Normal inflammatory response in your body and brain*

Digestive health, especially the digestion of fats*

Mood and mental health*

Cognitive health*

Heart health*

Joint health, flexibility and comfort*

Normal healthy immune response*

Cellular health*

Colon and gut health*

Skin health*

Prostate and breast health

Turmeric’s Influence on Your Inflammatory Response and Signs of Aging May Be Its Greatest Potential Attributes

The antioxidants in turmeric are in the form of active compounds called curcuminoids, whose activity may be:

Three times more powerful than grape seed or pine bark extract
Powerful enough to scavenge the hydroxyl radical – considered by many to be the most reactive of all oxidants
Helpful in protecting your cells’ mitochondria and genetic material

Curcuminoids support healthy joints and important blood and liver functions, which in turn help promote radiant, supple skin.

In fact, turmeric has been regarded as “skin food” for thousands of years in India and other cultures.

One Source I Can’t Recommend for Buying Turmeric

Most likely you’ve seen it in the spice section in your local grocery store. Even though there may be some good spices available there, it's very difficult to verify their purity and potency.

Also, the turmeric powder you buy in your store probably doesn’t come from high-quality organic herbs. And because it is not produced using certified organic processes, you can miss out on some or most of its healthful benefits.

What's more, grocery store-bought turmeric powder is intended for cooking, not for taking as a supplement. However, there’s no telling how long it has been sitting on the shelf – or yours at home if you only use it occasionally.

Keep in mind, too, that turmeric loses many of its beneficial properties when heated, so you may need to consume quite a bit of the store-bought powder if used for cooking to reap its potential benefits.

I recommend searching for a high-quality, organic-based turmeric supplement.

Here's how to recognize a high-quality turmeric supplement:

Contains certified organic turmeric

Standardized to at least 95% curcuminoids

Is fermented to enhance absorption potential

Avoids fillers and additives like magnesium stearate, an unnecessary flow additive, and Dibasic Calcium Phosphate (DCP), a substance that may inhibit the absorption of essential minerals within your system

Packed in a vegetable capsule instead of one that’s gelatin-based

I strongly believe in working with the land, not against it. The certified organic Turmeric I use enhances soil biodiversity, water retention, and production.

Plus, it’s sourced from its indigenous area, resulting in reliable production and clean, high-quality ingredients.

How Fermentation Turns Ordinary Turmeric Into Super-Turmeric

When you use fermented turmeric instead of regular, non-fermented turmeric, you allow your body to take a digestive shortcut.

By fermenting the turmeric ahead of time, you mimic your own digestive process to unlock turmeric’s beneficial compounds.

This improves turmeric’s bioavailability and makes it easier for it to be absorbed into your bloodstream – a real plus if your digestion or gut health isn’t up to par...*

Fermentation is also a valuable tool for unlocking nutritional potential in foods, like with fermented vegetables.

With the special fermentation technique, you help concentrate turmeric’s antioxidants

Regular, non-fermented turmeric can be a challenge to absorb in great enough amounts for significant benefits. By using fermented turmeric, you can maximize your potential gain.

email from Emily: Actress Reveals the “Bathroom Trick” That Made Her Feel Years Younger

But last year, she met a doctor who recommended something totally unexpected:

She just needed to change the way she goes to the bathroom.

As bizarre as this suggestion seemed at the time, Maggie tried it. And, to her amazement, she says her stomach “deflated,” her mood improved, and her energy skyrocketed — all in a matter of days.

When Maggie first revealed this “bathroom trick” on her website earlier this month, some were understandably skeptical. But since then, countless people have reported similar results.

Myers HISTAZYME $74.97

Histazyme is perfect for those who struggle with histamine intolerance. It supports the healthy breakdown and digestion of food-derived histamine.

Choose Auto-Ship and Save 10%! $67.47

Offers the patented enzyme formula containing diamine oxidase (DAO)

Is clinically proven to break down food-derived histamine in the digestive tract

Supports a healthy immune and inflammatory response to ingested histamine

Is easy to use, just take 1-2 capsule before a meal containing high histamine food

Histamine Intolerance (HI) is more common than you may think. I can’t tell you how often I speak with patients and discover that the source of many of their health challenges turns out to be histamine intolerance. After lab testing rules out autoimmunity, and other larger issues, I often find that the mysterious source of my patient’s neuropathy, headaches, sinus issues, and more, all boils down to this sometimes difficult to detect issue.

The foods you eat may be aggravating your symptoms. If you find that certain foods seem to be triggering headaches, dizziness, flushing in the face, neuropathy, sinus issues and more, than histamine intolerance may be the culprit. Foods and beverages such as red wine, avocados, green and black tea, most citrus, and meats that are not very fresh such as aged steaks, hamburger that was ground several days ago, or fish that isn’t freshly caught can all be either high in histamine itself, or histamine liberating, i.e. they free histamine from other proteins. They may also block the activity of DAO, the enzyme which is responsible for breaking down histamine in the gut.

Histazyme works like a charm. If you’ve been told that you have an intolerance to dietary histamine, or have discovered that fact out for yourself, following a low histamine diet can assist you in managing uncomfortable symptoms. However, it is sometimes not possible to eat low histamine, especially when dining out at a restaurant, at a friends house, or when travelling or on vacation. Taking histazyme up to 15 minutes before a meal can help break down ingested dietary histamine, thereby eliminating the histamine buildup and immune response and uncomfortable symptoms associated with it.

Feeling Frail? This 10-second exercise cuts your risk of falling BY HALF… video transcript

But did you know that every 11 seconds, an elderly person is treated in the emergency room for a fall?

By “elderly,” I don’t just mean frail 95-year-olds…

Even if you’re 65-years-young like me, you have a 1-in-3 chance of falling in the next 12 months.

That can land you in the hospital for weeks.

If you’re lucky, months of physical therapy in a rehabilitation house follow...

And if you’re not lucky… well, you know what could come next.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to become a statistic!

I don’t want my future to change by a preventable fall

As you’ll see in a moment, it’s not an exercise in the conventional sense of the word.

And it has nothing to do with pumping iron or turning yourself into a human pretzel at yoga class.

Let’s leave that to the 20-somethings.

Instead, I’m lifting the lid on a simple at-home exercise you can add to your morning routine, which could help keep your feet firmly planted on solid ground for years to come.

Even if you’re already slowing down.

Even if you think it’s too late to try something new.

My name is Dr. Glenn Rothfeld, and I’m the founder of The Rothfeld Center for Integrative Medicine in Massachusetts.

I’ve been practicing alternative medicine for 35 years.

I’ve helped thousands of people overcome their most serious health challenges—the natural way.

Just add my 10-second exercise to your morning routine—and you could cut your chance of falling in half.

I call it an exercise, but it’s more like an easy-to-learn habit that protects against frailty.

But as you grow older, you become less agile.

And by the time you retire, even the simple act of crossing the room can become something of a high-wire balancing act.

What changes?

Well… take a look at this picture:

Every muscle in your body is made up of 2 kinds of fibers.

Type I muscle fibers are for slow movement like walking.

Type II muscle fibers are for explosive, fast-action movement.

These type II muscle fibers are triggered when a split-second reaction is needed, like when you try to catch a falling object… or you lose your footing and stumble.

When you’re young, the ratio of type I to type II fibers is about 50:50—the perfect balance to keep you nimble and quick.

But as you age, your type II muscle fibers decrease in number.

Your reaction time slows down, making you clumsy and sluggish.

New research shows that the aging process can be REVERSED.

You see, scientists have identified a substance called cholecalciferol [koh-luh-kal-sif-uh-rol], or CCF for short.

Rather, it comes from the one source you can always trust:

Your own body.

CCF has the ability to increase the number and the size of type II muscle fibers—essentially wiping away the aging process in your muscles.

Unbelievable as it sounds, CCF actually makes your muscles YOUNGER.

The problem is: An estimated 41% of Americans have low levels of CCF and their bodies produce less and less of this special form of vitamin D over time.

And that’s where my 10-second exercise comes in.

Each morning when you do it, a surge of CCF is released.

With more and more CCF in your body, the number and size of your type II muscle fibers increases…

And your ability to respond quickly to prevent a fall improves dramatically.

In one randomized, controlled, 2-year study on elderly Japanese women, researchers showed that just 1000iu of an inferior form of CCF called ergocalciferol increases the number of type II muscle fibers…

In another study, researchers studied 419 healthy people between the ages of 20 and 76, and they found that high CCF levels are directly linked to both arm and leg muscle strength.

In other words…

CCF gives you the juice you need to stay on your feet, feeling as strong and powerful as you did decades ago.

But that’s just the beginning…

The 10-second exercise I’ll show you today also causes calcium to be released along with CCF.

Of course, everyone knows that calcium plays a pivotal role in bone health.

In a second study, older people living in retirement communities saw a 28% increase in balance—and an overall 39% decrease in the number of falls after 20 months.

And it works whether you’re active or not!

In a 3-year randomized controlled trial, CCF and calcium together reduced the odds of falling in older, moderately active people by 46%...

And reduced the risk of falling in less active people by a whopping 65%.

But explosive bursts of movement require a lot of your body’s most basic unit of energy: adenosine triphosphate, or ATP.

It’s called creatine—and without it, your ability to save yourself from falling decreases.

When you were younger, every muscle cell in your body was swimming in creatine...

But creatine levels drop as you get older… and your muscles’ ability to generate quick spurts of movement slowly starts to drain away.

It’s what I call a “feet-up, drink-up” exercise.

All you need to do is open a small sachet of powder… pour it into your favorite drink… watch it fizz as it dissolves…

Then drink up.

It really is that simple.

This incredible drink is called ULTIMATE BIONIC PLUS…

Ultimate Bionic Plus is taken in liquid form… so every delicious gulp rushes directly to your muscles.

Just pop it in your morning smoothie… protein drink… orange juice… or water…

Wait for the bubbles to subside…

Then sip it slowly or down it on one go.

Plus, it comes in convenient, travel-friendly single serving packs, which you can keep in your pocket or purse.

But when I created Ultimate Bionic Plus, I took the strength-boosting formula one step further by including 4 more muscle-invigorating nutrients.

Each sachet contains a concentrated shot of magnesium, potassium, and the amino acids taurine and betain.

The chemistry is complicated, but trust me, these nutrients play a pivotal role in energy production, muscle contraction, strength and endurance.

Myers COLLAGEN PROTEIN $32.97--512-721-0424

Collagen protein helps maintain a healthy intestinal barrier and supports healthy bones and joints! It is sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised beef and is 100% non-GMO and kosher.

Supports a healthy gut lining and normal intestinal permeability
Promotes vibrant hair, skin, and nails
Helps maintain healthy bones and joints
Keto friendly and paleo approved
Promote fat loss and optimal lean muscle mass
Is Tasteless and mixes easily into any hot or cold beverage

This Collagen is one of my absolute favorite supplements and I use it every single day! There are a lot of different collagen choices out there, and it can be really difficult to find a clean, high-quality source. That’s why I custom formulated my own Collagen powder. It’s sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised beef, and is also 100% non-GMO and kosher.

Collagen is the most important and abundant structural protein in your body. Think of Collagen as the ‘glue’ that hold your body together. Your skin, bones, connective tissue, cartilage, and joints all depend on ample collagen to be healthy, strong and flexible.

Most of us cannot get enough Collagen from our diets alone. Even those of us eating a clean, healthy, paleo-inspired diet have trouble getting as much collagen as our distant ancestors did, let alone enough for optimal health. Unless you’ve got an 8 quart crock pot simmering bone broth from grass-fed, antibiotic-free cow bones all day every day, then you are very likely in need of a high-quality Collagen supplement!

Collagen is fantastic for those concerned with Leaky Gut. Collagen is full of amino acids and peptides that help maintain and promote optimal gut lining health. The cells lining your intestinal tract absolutely love this stuff, and so many of my patients report greater digestive comfort after using it. Supporting the gut lining is absolutely paramount for those concerned with autoimmunity, healthy thyroid function, and a balanced and normal inflammation response.

Collagen is critical if you’re looking to optimize the health of your muscles, bones, and joints, as well as your hair, skin, and nails. It’s even more important after the age of 40, when your body’s Collagen production naturally declines. Why do we get wrinkles at the age of 40? Well, a lot of that has to do with not enough Collagen to support our skin!

There are different types of collagen out there, however Type I & III are the most important to supplement with. My grass-fed, pasture-raised beef Collagen is pure Type I & III. These types lend all the great benefits to your skin, bones, hair, nails, and connective tissue.

Collagen supports healthy weight management by optimizing lean muscle mass It even helps curb sugar cravings by assisting with healthy insulin production and pancreatic function. My grass-fed Collagen is also rich in conditionally essential amino acids that many of us are lacking in, such as glycine, which supports a healthy mood and restful sleep.

5s Seems to help with regulating the digestive system
I started using the flaxseed oil because I want to reduce inflammation. I take one capsule twice a day. I have many food and environmental allergies, which of course means that I have lots of inflammation. My functional medicine doctor recommended that I begin to take fish oil as part of my gut healing regiment to reduce inflammation. I initially started using doTERRA's EO Megas, and while they were good, it left me burping essential oils all day. I switched to Sports Research flaxseed because I am attempting to transition to more of a plant-based diet and felt that my supplements should also be plant-based.

About two weeks after starting Sports Research flaxseed oil, I noticed that my skin seems to be clearing up and my digestive system seems to be regulating. I will note that my diet had changed somewhat, but even when I went back to eating junk (I had a rough couple of weeks), my digestive system still seems to be much better than it was before. There has also been a significant decrease in my abdominal pain. I also have to note that even though the flaxseed oil does make me burp, there is no aftertaste at all. I have been taking the flaxseed oil for a little over a month today, but I plan to continue taking it and I am looking forward to the long-term benefits that it offers.

Question: What kind of fish oil is in this product ?
Answer: Anchovy

5s This really works
I went to the doctor for lack of energy and feeling dizzy. The doctor told me that I had a little high bad cholesterol and a little low good cholesterol, also I had the beginning of anemia. After 2 weeks taking OMEGA 3-6-9 bulk supplement, I have felt better, with more energy, my blood pressure decreased, and then it was confirmed by the blood tests where almost all values tend to be stable. Also, Bulk supplements are more pure and concentrated than others brand that I have tried.

5s Efficient and fresh
When I received my Omega oil, I laughed because I didn't know the bag would be so big! When I opened it, it was actually rather pretty, all those shiny gel caps. The dosage is three caps. Sometimes I take all three at once, sometimes i spread it out throughout the day. There is a bit of a fish burp, but it's not strong, and it doesn't taste sour or linger. That's how I know it's fresh. Very pleased with this purchase and will definitely purchase more in the future!

It also helps the body process and eliminate other toxins... such as those found in plastics and conventional body products. When you’re under stress (especially in the case of autoimmunity) or have a high toxic burden, glutathione is rapidly depleted, so supplementation is vital to effectively tackle these challenges.

The #1 Nutrient for Detoxification, Immune Health, and All-Day Energy

Email from Amy.

Glutathione In today’s toxic world full of heavy metals, plastics, mold, and synthetic chemicals, there is one superstar nutrient working overtime to keep your body functioning optimally. Meet glutathione: your body’s master detoxifier!

No other nutrient works harder to eliminate mercury, lead, aluminum, mycotoxins, parabens, phthalates, and the hundreds of other toxic substances we come into contact with on a daily basis. I literally refer to it as “glorious glutathione” in my New York Times bestselling book, The Autoimmune Solution, because that’s how much I love it and how helpful it is for those of us dealing with chronic illness such as mold toxicity, heavy metal overload, autoimmunity, Hashimoto’s, Graves’, and other conditions.

In this article, I’ll be covering what glutathione is, why we need it, the health benefits of glutathione, and how to get more of this powerful nutrient!

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a nutrient naturally produced by your liver that can be found in nearly every cell of the human body. It is comprised of three amino acids: cysteine, glycine, and glutamate. Glutathione helps your body process and eliminate toxins, supports energy production, is a potent free radical scavenger, and boosts your immune system. Recent research has even correlated levels of glutathione in your cells as a predictor of how long you will live!1

Although your body does produce some glutathione naturally, a poor diet, toxins, medications, stress, and illness deplete your glutathione levels, or halt production completely. Exposure to heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, lead, or arsenic can also lead to glutathione depletion.

Low glutathione levels are a critical factor in the onset of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and psoriasis.2 Studies have shown that patients with autoimmune conditions tend to have lower blood concentrations of glutathione than those without autoimmunity.3 Without enough glutathione, your body cannot properly detox, which means toxins linger in your bloodstream or get stored in fat, wreaking havoc on your immune system and setting you up for chronic illness

Living in a Toxic World: Why We Need Glutathione

Every single one of us is exposed to an unprecedented amount of toxins in this day and age. There are over 80,000 chemicals registered for use in the United States, and each year another 1,700 are added to that list. Many of these industrial chemicals are the basic ingredients in our cosmetics and personal care products. An average of seven new industrial chemicals get approval by the U.S. government daily, and 80% of these are approved in three weeks or less with little or no safety testing done.

You read that correctly – the FDA does not investigate or test for the safety of personal care products before consumers buy them! Instead, the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR), an industry-appointed and funded panel, reviews the safety of cosmetic ingredients. According to EWG, there are approximately 10,500 ingredients used in cosmetics in our country, and in its 30 year history, the CIR has screened only 11 of those ingredients. This means that, if we do the math again, nearly 90% of cosmetics ingredients are left un-reviewed and un-tested for safety.

The consequences of our increasingly toxic world can already be seen in the skyrocketing rates of allergies, asthma, cancer, and autoimmune disease over the last half century.

In 2003, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) partnered with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City to study to test the “body burden” of the average American–not those working with chemicals or living in polluted areas, just regular people who they assumed were relatively safe. Out of 210 different substances tested, they found a total of 167 in the group with an average of 91 toxins in each person’s body, including industrial chemicals, heavy metals, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), insecticides, dioxin, and benzene.5 Of the 91 toxins found in the average person, at least 53 are known to suppress the immune system. This is a key piece of the puzzle when it comes to understanding today’s autoimmune epidemic and the surge in chronic illness.

Maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle is a good place to start when it comes to keeping your immune system functioning optimally. I recommend a two-step approach for taming the toxins: 1.) minimize your exposure, and 2.) support your detox pathways. However, the bombardment of environmental toxins we face each day–in the form of water and air pollution, pesticides and herbicides in our food, and chemicals in our beauty products and cleaning products–requires us to turn to our body’s most powerful methods of detoxification to keep up with our individual toxic burdens. That’s where glutathione comes in!

The Health Benefits of Glutathione

Detoxifies Mold and Heavy Metals

Mycotoxins and heavy metals can build up in your system, leading to a whole host of issues–including allergies, eczema, and autoimmune disease–and can prevent you from achieving optimal health. When I see someone struggling with chronic symptoms even after addressing the other pillars of The Myers Way®, I often suspect mold toxicity or heavy metal overload.

As your body’s “master detoxifier”, glutathione binds to toxins and pulls them out of your system so you can safely and effectively flush them out of your system.

Scavenges Free Radicals

One of the primary functions of glutathione is to relieve your body of oxidative stress, which is when your DNA becomes damaged due to an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in your blood. Oxidative stress is at the root of myriad chronic illnesses, including diabetes, atherosclerosis, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and cancer.

Glutathione is by far your body’s most potent free radical scavenger, and can even protect your DNA from the most notorious free radicals including advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and reactive oxygen species (ROS).

Boosts Energy Production

Glutathione is responsible for coordinating the activity of antioxidants in your cells, including Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and free radical fighters CoQ10 and Ubiquinol. This activity clears your cells of toxins and protects your cells and their mitochondria (the “power plants” in cells that provide your body with fuel known as ATP) from oxidative damage, allowing them to function at peak efficiency.

Supports Immune Health

Something I notice all the time in my patients with autoimmunity is depleted glutathione levels. Without enough glutathione, you are more susceptible to attacks on your immune system, as toxins, heavy metals, and free radicals are allowed to accumulate and wreak havoc on your body.

Optimal glutathione levels can help support immune health by boosting white blood cell count. White blood cells are immune cells that defend your body against infections, disease pathogens, and even cancer cells!

How to Increase Glutathione Levels Naturally

If you have an MTHFR mutation or a SNP on the GSTM1 gene, you don’t detoxify heavy metals as well or process glutathione as efficiently as most people. And if you have an autoimmune condition or another chronic illness, that means your glutathione levels have been depleted and are currently suboptimal. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can increase your glutathione levels to enhance immune function naturally.

Foods

Sulfurous vegetables such as onions and garlic, as well as cruciferous veggies including broccoli, kale, cauliflower, and cabbage can help your body make its own glutathione. However, if you have autoimmunity, mold toxicity, heavy metal overload, or another chronic illness, getting enough glutathione to overcome your condition from foods alone can be a challenge.

Supplements

Supplementing with glutathione is particularly important for those with compromised immune systems. I have seen amazing results in myself and my patients with autoimmune disease, toxic mold exposure, heavy metal overload, lyme, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue when taking a glutathione supplement. In fact, glutathione is so helpful for people with autoimmunity that it’s one of the three supplements in my Autoimmune Trio kit, available now for a limited time! Along with glutathione, the Autoimmune Trio also includes curcumin and resveratrol, and these three supplements taken together potentiate one another, meaning their effect is even stronger! You can read all about these supplements (and the two other supplements I recommend for everyone with autoimmunity) in this article.

While its use is critical for those with autoimmune conditions, glutathione is so powerful that I recommend it to anyone who wants to reach peak optimal health! Research has shown that glutathione can help maintain lean muscle mass, reduce recovery time, and shift metabolism from fat production to muscle development, making it an excellent choice for athletes.7 It’s also great for nights of indulging. Although I rarely ever drink alcohol and recommend only drinking on special occasions, I always take my glutathione before imbibing to combat the toxic alcohol byproducts that produce a hangover.

Here’s where you need to be careful though–glutathione is definitely one of those supplements that you get what you pay for. In fact, most glutathione supplements out there simply don’t work! When I was sick from toxic mold, I tried every glutathione on the market to help my body get rid of the toxins–and wasn’t getting any response. That’s because glutathione is typically not well absorbed when taken orally.

To be absorbed by your body, glutathione supplements must be in the proper form. The “liposomal” form has been advertised as being able to penetrate your cells, however I personally haven’t found it to be effective in myself or my patients. The best way to absorb it is with IV glutathione, which is considered the gold standard. However, this method is expensive and not very convenient.

The good news is that after a very LONG search, I found a form of glutathione that is acetylated and uses nanotechnology, which prevents it from getting broken down in your gut, allowing it to be absorbed. I can confidently say that the glutathione supplement I carry in my store is the most effective oral form of glutathione available!

With my history of autoimmunity, heavy metal overload and toxic mold exposure, I make sure to take it myself every single day. And I stock up and take extra when I travel (due to my increase toxin and mold exposure) or any time I feel I might get sick. So if you’re ready to feel the impact of glorious glutathione for yourself, be sure to add this into your daily routine!

Leaky Gut

Myers LEAKY GUT REVIVE™ $44.97

Leaky Gut Revive™ is the perfect supplement for maintaining a healthy gut lining.

Choose Auto-Ship and Save 10%! $40.47

Mixes easily into water, juice or smoothies

Offers an excellent source of L-Glutamine to nourish your gut cells

Has aloe extract to help restore your gut’s normal mucosal lining

Includes licorice extract to soothe the stomach and intestinal lining

Contains larch arabinogalactan to promote healthy gut microflora and promote gut mending fatty acid production

Slippery elm and marshmallow root maximize gut repair and mucous membrane health

Your gut cells have the ability to turn over and regenerate every 48 hours… IF you have what they need to do so. This is extremely good news if you’re suffering from nagging digestive issues. This means that by nourishing your gut cells, and avoiding inflammatory triggers, you can quite literally ‘renew’ your intestinal lining. As old cells die and make way for new cells, we have the ability to provide these new cells with everything they need so that they can function at optimum efficiency. What do Larch Trees have to do with your gut health? I’m willing to wager you didn’t think you were going to be on the receiving end of a botany lesson today. However, the North American Larch Tree offers gut health benefits that are simply too good not to tell you about. Early Native Americans chewed the tree’s bark and used its resin. They believed it enhanced immune function. Today, we know they were right. Larch arabinogalactan does indeed support healthy immune function in numerous ways. It also acts as a prebiotic for beneficial bacteria in your gut! Probiotic bacteria ferment the arabinogalactan and produce fatty acids, such as butyrate, in the process. These fatty acids are incredibly beneficial to your gut and intestinal barrier! Leaky Gut Revive™ is the direct upgrade and successor to my famous GI Repair Powder. After years of using GI Repair powder with my patients, I’ve optimized the formula, as well as added slippery elm root and marshmallow root to take the gut repairing factors and mucous membrane support to the next level. These small but vital changes make Leaky Gut Revive™ the absolute best supplement for anyone concerned about leaky gut and intestinal health.

Leaky Gut Revive™ is incredibly easy to add to your gut health regimen. Do you have at least one glass of water every day? I sure hope so! That’s all it takes to be able to take Leaky Gut Revive™. It mixes fast and effortlessly into any beverage. Try mixing it a glass of water, a smoothie, or fresh juice first thing in the morning like I often do!

Suggested Use: Mix 1 scoop in 8 oz of water, juice or smoothie






Resveratrol

Myers RESVERATROL $32.37 The health benefits of 2-4 glasses of red wine, without the alcohol, sugar, or risk of yeast overgrowth! 512-721-0424

Resveratrol is a powerful free radical scavenger. In fact, it's responsible for many of the health benefits of red wine. Free radical scavengers like Resveratrol lend an electron to unstable free radicals that cause oxidative damage to the cells in your body. By supporting your body’s defenses against these free radicals and the oxidative damage they cause, you are also supporting a finely tuned immune system, healthy inflammation balance, and optimal aging.

Resveratrol is a powerful free radical scavenger. You’ve heard about antioxidants and free radicals before I’m sure. Free radical scavengers like Resveratrol can lend an electron to unstable free radicals that can cause oxidative damage to the cells in your body. By supporting your body’s defenses against these free radicals and the oxidative damage they cause, you are also supporting a fine tuned immune system, healthy inflammation balance, and optimal aging!

These tiny little lozenges make the perfect dessert! You may have heard me say this before in one of my blogs or Facebook Live videos… I love swapping out dessert for one or two of my little Resveratrol lozenges! They taste so good and really hit the spot when it comes o an after dinner craving for something sweet!

Resveratrol supports optimal cardiovascular health. Resveratrol is a verifiable “wunderkind” when it comes to supporting a healthy cardiovascular system and balanced blood pressure. This polyphenolic powerhouse has been shown in clinical trials to upregulate blood levels of nitric oxide (NO), which in turn exerts a relaxing effect on vascular tissue and supports balanced blood pressure in a bold way. Add all that to the fact that Resveratrol helps support a healthy inflammation response, and bolsters the body’s defenses against oxidative damage done by free radicals and reactive oxygen species, and you have an amazing suite of optimal health supporting benefits in one tiny little lozenge!

Suggested Use: Dissolve one tablet under the tongue twice daily.

Content: 60 sublingual tablets

DOES NOT CONTAIN: Wheat, gluten, corn, yeast, soy, fish, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, ingredients derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or preservatives.

Where does Dr. Myers’ Resveratrol come from?

I source my Resveratrol from sustainably grown and harvested Japanese Knotweed. While many people think of red grape skins when they think about resveratrol, the fact of the matter is that high quality trans-resveratrol is much more abundant in Japanese knotweed, and far more affordable. The other benefit to extracting resveratrol from Japanese Knotweed is that red grape skins are almost always supersaturated with fungicides which can taint the resveratrol.

When is the best time of day to take Resveratrol? Does it matter if I take it with or without food?

Resveratrol may be taken at any time of the day and can be taken with or without food. I prefer to take mine after dinner as a sweet treat!

Resveratrol Benefits: Everything You Need To Know About What This Antioxidant Can Do For You MindBodyGreen

You've probably heard of resveratrol, an "antioxidant superhero" found in red wine, dark chocolate, grapes, and blueberries. It's been a topic of scientific inquiry for years; and today, it's believed to be one of the most potent polyphenols and strongest protectors against symptoms associated with aging and free radical damage out there. In other words: It works hard to keep you healthy in the long-term.

And while its health benefits are no excuse to go out and drink as much red wine as you please (since alcohol can actually increase free radical production in the body), there's no doubt it has a ton of exciting properties worth learning about. Keep in mind that you should always talk to your doctor before adding any supplements to your routine—especially if you're suffering from a serious health condition like cancer or taking medications of any kind. Here are some of the exciting health benefits of resveratrol:

1. It may reduce inflammation.

Studies have demonstrated resveratrol’s ability to suppress the expression and activity of enzymes tied to inflammatory responses that damage tissue throughout the body. Meaning, it might be able to help with chronic inflammation and an overactive inflammatory response, which is the hallmark of autoimmune disease. Chronic low-grade inflammation also contributes to many other illnesses, including heart disease.

2. It may help treat diabetes.

Proper insulin production is vital as you age, especially in an effort to avoid type 2 diabetes. Not only does resveratrol help to lower overall insulin levels, but it may also increase insulin sensitivity, which can help prevent a host of complications often associated with diabetes. One explanation for how resveratrol works is that it may stop a certain enzyme from turning glucose into sorbitol, a sugar alcohol. When too much sorbitol builds up in people with diabetes, it can create cell-damaging oxidative stress..

Interestingly, resveratrol also has positive effects on brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which is involved in the pathogenesis of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. Researchers have observed that BDNF levels are lower in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus and other insulin-related problems.

3. It helps optimize cellular function.

The mitochondria are the energy centers of the cells, helping to optimize whatever the cellular function of an individual cell may be. Many experts think that when mitochondrial function is enhanced, it will lead to healthier cellular function and a person will experience increased energy levels.

4. It fends off aging free radicals.

High levels of oxidative stress affect every organ and system in the body and has been linked to everything from Alzheimer's disease, arteriosclerosis, cancer, and heart disease to accelerated aging, asthma, diabetes, and leaky gut syndrome. Oxidative stress is believed to lead to the development of the most prevalent chronic diseases and disorders killing adults today, especially heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. As a strong polyphenol, resveratrol may have therapeutic uses, meaning it could be used in actual medical treatments in the future to fight free radicals and oxidative stress.

5. It helps optimize blood circulation.

Resveratrol keeps circulation flowing smoothly, preventing arterial damage and offering protection in the brain from memory loss and conditions including Alzheimer's disease. It may also prevent other disorders, such as stroke, ischemia, and Huntington's disease.

6. It may mitigate autoimmune disease.

Because it controls the release of pro-inflammatory molecules, resveratrol might benefit those with an autoimmune disease or help prevent one from occurring in the first place. It also seems to positively alter gut microbiota and influences stem cells and their ability to divide and multiply, which are both associated with better overall health.

7. It's anti-carcinogenic.

8. It can reduce the risk of heart disease.

In a JAMA study, resveratrol (in this case, from red wine) decreased the risk of heart disease and other common health concerns. A 2015 review concluded that high doses of resveratrol supplementation may help reduce systolic blood pressure—when high, it's a risk factor for heart disease. Resveratrol also helps the body to produce more nitric oxide, which causes blood vessels to relax.

9. It can reduce blood cholesterol levels.

Resveratrol may influence cholesterol levels by reducing the effect of a cholesterol production-related enzyme. As an antioxidant, resveratrol also may decrease the oxidation of "bad" LDL cholesterol—aka cholesterol that can contribute to fatty buildups in arteries, which increases the risk for heart attack, stroke, and peripheral artery disease.

10. It may lengthen your life span.

Well, it lengthened the life span of animals, at least. There's evidence that resveratrol activates certain genes that are thought to slow the aging process. It works to achieve this in the same way as calorie restriction, which has shown promise in lengthening life spans by changing how genes express themselves.

However, it's not clear if the compound would have a similar effect in humans. A review of studies exploring this connection found that resveratrol increased the life span of 60 percent of the organisms studied, but the effect was strongest in organisms that were less related to humans, such as worms and fish.

11. It can protect your brain.

Several studies have suggested that drinking red wine can help slow down age-related cognitive decline. This may partly be due to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity of resveratrol. It seems to interfere with protein fragments called beta-amyloids, which are crucial to forming the plaques that are a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease. Additionally, the compound may set off a chain of events that protects brain cells from damage.

U.K. researchers conducted a study of 22 healthy adults and determined that neurological blood flow was increased following resveratrol consumption. Before that study, Illinois researchers discovered that mice receiving resveratrol supplementation had better memory function and overall increased mental performance.

12. It may ease joint pain.

Arthritis is a common affliction that leads to joint pain and loss of mobility, and plant-based supplements are being studied as a way to treat and prevent joint pain. A 2011 study found that resveratrol, when taken in supplement form, may help protect cartilage from deteriorating. Cartilage breakdown can cause joint pain and is one of the main symptoms of arthritis. In one study, researchers injected resveratrol into the knee joints of rabbits with arthritis and found that these rabbits suffered less damage to their cartilage.

13. It may help your eyesight from fading.

A 2013 paper found that resveratrol has the ability to regulate angiogenesis—the development of new blood cells—thereby preventing the abnormal growth of blood vessels that are damaging to eyesight.

14. It protects your skin from environmental stress.

If the gold standard of antioxidants in face serums was vitamin C, it's now sharing that spotlight with resveratrol. The antioxidant ability of resveratrol is known to be both potent and efficient. In fact, it has been shown to be greater than that of vitamins E and C. One study demonstrated that resveratrol was 95 percent efficient at preventing lipid peroxidation, compared to 65 percent for vitamin E and 3 percent for vitamin C. Dermatology researchers have even found that topical resveratrol possesses 17 times more antioxidant potency than idebenone, an expensive and powerful antioxidant drug used in certain anti-wrinkle creams.

15. It calms facial redness.

Applied topically, resveratrol helps protect the skin's surface and helps rebuff negative environmental influences. It also has significant skin-calming properties that may help minimize the look of redness.

16. It boosts natural collagen production.

Resveratrol not only stimulates healthy cell proliferation but also supports synthesis of collagen by protecting the dermal matrix from harmful enzymes and improving the function of fibroblasts that create healthy collagen.

Fermented Ginger

Mercola Store Fermented Ginger 3 bottles $75.57 Free Shipping SAVINGS: $36.92 (32%)

Lessens Gas and Bloating in 4 Weeks, Goodbye Embarrassment Mercola fermented ginger

The first thing I suggest doing if you suffer from occasional gastrointestinal discomfort is to eliminate sugars and processed foods as they will cause pathogenic disease causing microbes to flourish

. After you have achieved that goal, it is important to nourish your gut flora with friendly probiotic bacteria, either from eating fermented foods or taking a high-quality probiotic supplement.

But what if you’re getting enough probiotics and eating healthy, organic foods and you’re still experiencing belly bloat and discomfort, gas, or occasional constipation or loose stools?

There are many reasons why. You may have:

A stressful or demanding lifestyle.

A genetic disposition towards gut issues that’s “wiring” you that way.

Undiagnosed food sensitivities, intolerances, or allergies.

A diet that’s excessive in fructose and other sugars, all linked to loose stools, flatulence, and tummy noise.

Inflammation in your stomach from taking over-the-counter or prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

An issue with your gut-brain cross talk

But this formula goes way beyond ordinary ginger. Remember earlier I promised you two special botanicals? Let’s take a closer look at the cornerstone of this groundbreaking formula...

Here are just some of the documented therapeutic benefits of ginger. Studies show it helps:

Protect gastric mucosa*

Stimulate the emptying of your stomach*

Support a normal inflammatory response*

Prevent flatulence*

Prevent spasms by soothing your intestinal tract*

Support normal fat digestion and absorption*

Support normal healthy carbohydrate and lipid metabolism*

Reduce feelings of hunger*

If you have a digestive issue, there’s a good chance the endothelial in your large intestine isn’t functioning optimally. Consequently, your body’s ability to ferment the 6-shogaol or 6-gingerol may be compromised.

With a ginger that’s fermented in advance – with the 6-gingerol already converted into the more bioavailable 6-paradol – your body doesn’t need to do the work.

This advance fermentation process, in essence, mimics what a healthy gut with plentiful beneficial microbes does to make ginger bioavailable and effective.

Recent animal studies with rats and chickens show how fermented ginger can actually change the structure of your gastrointestinal tract and improve the absorption of nutrients.*

Why does this matter? The villi in the small intestines play an important role in the absorption of nutrients. A larger surface area for your villi allows for more efficient absorption.

With many digestive issues, your intestinal villi – or the numerous little “fingers” lining your intestines – can become damaged or shortened, making it difficult for your body to take advantage of the beneficial nutrients in the foods you eat.

Got Stress? This Botanical Talks Back to Your Gut-Brain Axis

The Perilla frutescens plant, also known as Perilla leaf or Shiso, has been used traditionally to support the respiratory tract and the immune system. Recent research shows it’s also particularly effective for supporting gastrointestinal health.*

A scientifically proven proprietary standardized extract of its leaves – called Benegut® - is now available. Not only is Benegut® a high-quality, sustainable, wholesome food ingredient, I believe it’s a botanical that offers exciting promise for those seeking an effective pharmaceutical, drug-free solution for their gut issues.

Methylation Info

DNA methylation is a process by which methyl groups are added to the DNA molecule. Methylation can change the activity of a DNA segment without changing the sequence. When located in a gene promoter, DNA methylation typically acts to repress gene transcription. - Wikipedia

Methylation: Why It Matters For Your Immunity, Inflammation & More mbg

Methylation is the latest buzzword in the health industry, and for good reason. It's a biochemical process involved in almost all of your body's functions!

What is methylation? Without getting too technical, methylation is the addition of a single carbon and three hydrogen atoms (called a methyl group) to another molecule. The removal of a methyl group is called demethylation. Think of billions of little on/off switches inside your body that control everything from your stress response and how your body makes energy from food, to your brain chemistry and detoxification. That's methylation and demethylation.

Methyl groups control:

The stress (fight-or-flight) response
The production and recycling of glutathione — the body's master antioxidant
The detoxification of hormones, chemicals and heavy metals
The inflammation response
Genetic expression and the repair of DNA
Neurotransmitters and the balancing of brain chemistry
Energy production
The repair of cells damaged by free radicals
The immune response, controlling T-cell production, fighting infections and viruses and regulating the immune response

If you have a shortage of methyl groups, or your methylation cycle is interrupted, any or all of these processes can become compromised, and you could get sick. Research has clearly linked impaired methylation with autoimmune conditions.

Methylation and glutathione. Improving methylation is important for everyone, but it's especially important if you have an autoimmune condition. One of the reasons is the role of methylation in the production and recycling of glutathione, the body's master antioxidant and master "splinter" remover. Glutathione directly neutralizes free radicals, reduces inflammation and assists in the role of other antioxidants like vitamin C, E and lipoic acid.

Glutathione contains sulfur groups, which are sticky compounds that adhere to toxins and heavy metals and carry them out of the body. This is a good thing and you want lots of it! I haven't met anyone (including me) with any type of autoimmune condition that has adequate methylation and levels of glutathione.

In a perfect world, your body makes its own glutathione from the amino acids cysteine, glycine and glutamine, then recycles it via methylation using methyl donors like vitamin B12, folate, betaine and other nutrients. Under normal conditions, your body makes and recycles enough glutathione to handle all the toxins that you're exposed to. However, if you have a high toxic body burden, or a part of the methylation cycle is disrupted, you can get very sick.

How To Improve Methylation

1. Eat healing greens.

Eating dark leafy green veggies daily provides you with natural folate (a methyl donor), necessary for proper methylation. Make sure to get a minimum of two cups of these healing foods daily.

2. Get B vitamins and folate.

B vitamins are methyl donors, especially folate, B6, B12 and riboflavin. Sources of B vitamins include fish, eggs, dark leafy greens, asparagus, almonds, sunflower seeds and walnuts.

3. Support methylation with supplements.

Make sure you get adequate amounts of magnesium and zinc, which support methylation.

4. Take probiotics.

Remember, the good bugs help produce and absorb B vitamins and folate.

5. Reduce stress, booze, smoking and toxins.

These toxic "splinters" burden your liver and use up methyl groups.

How To Boost Your Glutathione

In addition to making sure your methylation is operating at full capacity, you can increase your glutathione levels with the following strategies:

1. Eat healing proteins.

Eating foods that are high in the glutathione precursors — cysteine, glycine and glutamate — will boost your glutathione. Sources of these important amino acids include organic omega-3 enriched eggs, safe fish and organic lean meats.

2. Eat sulfurous foods.

Sulfur is a key component of glutathione, so eating enough sulfur-containing foods is vital. Sources include garlic, onions and cruciferous vegetables like kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, watercress and bok choy.

3. Take protein powder.

Undenatured whey protein powder boosts glutathione levels by converting cysteine into glutathione. If you're allergic to whey (which comes from dairy), try a hypoallergenic rice protein powder. Take one or two scoops of protein powder per day in water, juice or smoothie.

4. Take selenium.

Selenium plays an important role in the production of glutathione. Take 200 to 400 mcg per day.

5. Optimize your antioxidants.

Vitamins C, D and E all encourage higher glutathione levels.

6. Move your body.

Besides reducing stress and depression, exercise also boosts your glutathione levels and improves detoxification.

7. Get enough sleep.

Studies show that lack of sleep can deplete glutathione. Make sure you get between seven and 10 hours of sleep nightly.

8. Take herbs to support glutathione.

Studies show that milk thistle can boost glutathione levels. Take 100 to 300 mg daily.

9. Spice it up.

Curcumin raises glutathione levels in the liver — one more good reason to use this anti-inflammatory spice! Or, you can take a curcumin supplement.

Avoiding toxins, lowering your stress, healing your GI and consuming foods and supplements that support methylation and glutathione can enhance your body's ability to naturally detoxify and heal. Many times, just following guidelines like these can offer some relief from your autoimmune condition and keep you healthy and vibrant for life.

But, when doing everything "right" is still not enough to improve your autoimmune symptoms, it makes sense to consult a qualified practitioner who can order functional testing and guide you through the healing process.

start by taking 1 and work your way up to the recommended dose of 3 over a couple of weeks. don't try to be a hero. if I take these after 12 PM, I wake up in the middle of the night and can't sleep. if I get them all down by 9 AM, I feel great during the day and have no sleep issues the following evening.

R Solved restless legs
I don't absorb b6 well and causes me to struggle with restless legs. As long as I take this every day, I am no longer restless at night.

R This is the one you want.
I have taken Methyl CPG and other methylated supplements and wasn't sure how good or bad they were until I tried Thorne's methylguard plus. I can actually feel a difference. More energy and healthier overall feeling. It's pretty amazing. I wouldn't have believed it without trying it myself. I'll never switch again. This is the winner for me.

R Great vitamin. Only need take 1 a day.
This did the job... I took it for 3 months, only 1 a day, despite the package saying 2 a day. My bloodwork shows that I have enough vitamin B now.

Methylation Support $37.37 reg. $43.97

Supports healthy methylation status in the liver
Optimizes adrenal function
Assists the body in handling physical, mental, and emotional stress
Offers methylated and coenzyme form B vitamins for optimum bioavailability
Helps balance MTHFR genetic deficiencies
Supports vibrant energy production

If you have or suspect MTHFR mutations, you should consider Methylation Support™. Methylation is a biochemical process that, among many other critical functions, transforms toxins into safer substances that will not harm your body. Methylation depends on a number of vitamins and cofactors, including folate, vitamin B12, and vitamin B6. My Methylation Support formula is the perfect blend of the nutrients your body needs to engage in optimal methylation. I custom selected these nutrients in their most bioavailable forms in order to support the body’s methylation and detoxification efforts.

B vitamin methyl donor insufficiencies can wreak havoc on your health! Insufficiencies in these critical vitamins can be caused by a number of things, including a poor diet, genetic mutations, toxic exposure (especially mold and heavy metals), high stress, viruses, bacterial or parasitic infection or any combination of these. Methylation Support™ provides your body with the necessary components for health promoting biochemical reactions (such as detoxification, healthy immune function, ideal joint and cartilage structure, & brain and cardiovascular health) to take place!

If you have been exposed to toxic mold and/or heavy metals… detoxing from these harmful substances can be quite a challenge. Often times in these cases, methylation is severely impaired, and the body simply cannot process toxins like it could before the exposure. In these cases, the immune system is often overwhelmed, and Phase 1 Detoxification is bottlenecked as the body and liver do not have what they need in order to function optimally. Adding in my Methylation Support™ formula supplies your body with the nutrients and methyl donors it requires in order to kickstart Phase 1 Detoxification and start processing out heavy metals and biotoxins so you can reclaim your vitality.

My Methylation Support™ formula is a fantastic source of Folate in the very best form! That’s right, most folate supplements on the market are unfortunately nothing more than synthetic folic acid which has been linked to cancer when taken in high amounts. Even many of the “high end” food based and co-enzyme B Complexes I researched contained hidden synthetic folic acid labeled as folate! When I custom formulated my Methylation Support™ formula, I made sure to select only the most bioavailable form of folate, known as L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate, or 5MTHF for short. L-Methylfolate helps the body in many ways, including helping to overcome genetic mutations at MTHFR!

Suggested Use: Take 1-2 capsules in the morning, preferably with food.

Contents: 120 Capsules

DOES NOT CONTAIN: Wheat, gluten, soy, dairy, egg, shellfish, ingredients derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs), artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, or preservatives.

I recommend my patients take their Methylation Support™ in the morning at breakfast. And for those who take two capsules a day, I ask them to take the second capsule at lunch. While my Methylation Support™ formula is water soluble and may be taken with only a glass of water, (it does not have to be taken with a meal), some people find that they feel better when taking it with food.

Email from Dr. Myers

Are you one of the 60% of US adults who isn't methylating toxins and B-vitamins correctly?

I’ll give you a hint… virtually every single patient battling chronic health challenges has trouble with methylation (I sure do)!

Methylation plays a massive role in your energy production, free radical defense, inflammation balance, and, perhaps most prominently, your detoxification (from homocysteine, environmental toxins, and more)...

Most notably, for detoxing chemicals in processed, factory-farmed food, conventional cleaning and personal care products, as well as toxic mold... and even heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum and lead.

Healthy methylation is also crucial for helping your body utilize the B vitamins you need to feel energized, and support a calm, healthy mood.

This piece is absolutely huge. So many of us are walking around completely exhausted!

Thankfully, there are high-quality supplements available (I take mine every single day...) that readily support your body’s methylation efforts in spite of genetic mutations, heavy metals and mold exposure, and other impediments.

Supplementation is often life changing. This is because methylation is a crucial chemical reaction that is heavily involved in how you feel every day.

I designed Methylation Support™ just for you (and no, you don’t actually need to know if you have genetic impairments to reap the amazing benefits of Methylation Support™)







Diarrhea

CG: when I had chronic diarrhea, dr. put me on Florastor. It stopped it.

These Two Supplements Are Your New Secret For GI Distress Whether you drank some sketchy water on vacation, battle irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or caught a nasty stomach bug, you’ve likely felt the urgent call of gastrointestinal distress before. Although typically not life-threatening for adults in the developed world, loose, watery stool can be unpleasant and inconvenient. Diarrhea will generally clear up within a few days, but there are plenty of natural remedies to combat the situation and even prevent it in the first place. Besides the tried-and-true rest-and-rehydrate method, two supplements—probiotics and glutamine—can bolster the immune system and offer some much-needed relief. If you’ve got the runs, you might want to run out and grab these supplements.

Probiotics for diarrhea: the microbiome and the immune system.

Popping a probiotic in times of gastrointestinal distress can reduce the severity and duration of diarrheal symptoms. Probiotic supplements contain healthy bacteria to support the microbiome, a collection of trillions of bacteria that live in our gut. The microbiome is intricately connected with digestive health and the immune system. In fact 70 to 80 percent of the immune system lives in the gut alongside the microbiota.

Scientists believe that the immune system and the bacteria that live in the gut "co-evolved" to communicate and support one another. "Good" bacteria helps stimulate and "prime" the immune system to keep it in tiptop fighting shape against "bad" bacteria that can make us sick. In addition, some "good" bacteria produce toxins to fight off "bad" bacteria themselves. So a healthy gut equals a healthy and strong immune system.

Taking antibiotics, stress, diet, infections, and many other factors can change the makeup of the microbiome and create an imbalance between good and bad bacteria, weakening the immune system. In addition, diarrhea can flush good bacteria out with it, making it even harder to fight off whatever may be causing your digestive discomfort.

Probiotic supplements deliver an array of "good" bacteria to help restore balance in the gut and support the immune system. One study even found that probiotics were able to reduce the duration of diarrhea symptoms by one or two days. And when you're tethered to the toilet, one or two days is a huge win. Probiotic-rich foods may be tough to stomach right now, especially dairy-based ones like yogurt, so you may want to stick to a supplement to reap the bacterial benefits.

In addition to helping you recover from a bout of diarrhea, probiotics may be able to prevent one in the first place. One of the most common causes of diarrhea is travel-related exposure to pathogens. Millions of people each year contract diarrhea from unclean water and food or the general stress of travel. By maintaining a healthy gut, you can ensure your immune system is well-supported to fight back while you enjoy vacation. Research has found that pre-emptively taking a probiotic could prevent up to 85 percent of "traveler’s diarrhea" cases.

Glutamine for diarrhea: gut health and hydration.

The thin cell wall barrier between the intestines and the bloodstream is extremely important for overall health. It keeps any pathogens and toxins that we consume or come in contact with from entering the bloodstream while absorbing all the good-for-you nutrients. Glutamine, an amino acid, provides a crucial energy source for these cells to keep them strong and digesting properly. Having adequate glutamine levels in the body is essential for maintaining gut integrity and health.

Glutamine is a nonessential amino acid, which means the body usually produces sufficient amounts, but in times of illness or extreme stress glutamine levels may become depleted. This can weaken the intestinal walls and affect the body's ability to properly and efficiently absorb nutrients during digestion. In addition, having low levels of glutamine may exacerbate or even cause diarrhea. The increased speed of, er, transit through the intestines can make it even more difficult to replenish glutamine and other important nutrients.

Supplementing with glutamine when you have diarrhea can help repair the intestinal walls and improve nutrient absorption. This is especially important for fighting dehydration, a common but potentially dangerous side effect of diarrhea. In fact, glutamine supplementation has been shown to significantly increase water and electrolyte uptake, lessening the severity of diarrhea and staving off dehydration.







JointFlex

Reset your “body clock” and get 24-hour PAIN RELIEF about LunaFLex and SolarFlex. V transcript

Turn your worn-out joints into BRAND-NEW knees, hips, knuckles, or elbows starting tonight

a brand-new scientific discovery that helps reset your natural “body clock”.

With this simple change, you can get pain-free joints 24 hours a day, 7 days a week…

So you’ll spend all day loose, limber, and pain-free…

You’ll easily bend, crouch, reach, and twist all day long without cringing in discomfort.

Then at night, you’ll fall into a deep, healing, restorative sleep…

Without those sore and achy joints that keep you tossing and turning all night.

In fact, this breakthrough has been shown in scientific trials to be 240% MORE EFFECTIVE than other leading joint treatments.

My name is Dr. Allan Spreen, and I’m Chief Medical Advisor for NorthStar Nutritionals.

As a medical doctor, published author, former Olympic dive coach, and expert in both conventional and alternative medicines, I have a unique perspective on joint health…

Especially since I’m 68 years young and no stranger to stiff, painful joints myself.

That’s why I’m telling everyone I know about this remarkable scientifically-backed discovery.

And according to the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, your “body clock” controls nearly all of the important things in your body… hormone levels, digestion, body temperature, mental performance…

But most importantly for you, your “body clock” controls your pain sensitivity.

Which is THE KEY to getting the TOTAL 24-HOUR RELIEF you’ve been searching for…

This means your joints need specific nutrients during the day when you’re awake and different ones at night when you’re asleep.

And brand-new cartilage = brand-new joints.

you need our next “night mode” nutrient, UC-II Collagen.

This special type of collagen went head to head in a study against glucosamine and chondroitin.

At the end of this double-blind controlled study, all participants who received UC-II scored 3X higher than the glucosamine and chondroitin group showing improvement in movement, flexibility, and most importantly less pain.

This means 3X better movement… 3X better flexibility and 3X LESS PAIN.

This same study showed that UC-II is 240% MORE EFFECTIVE than glucosamine and chondroitin.

you NEED to give your body the exact “day mode” nutrients and “night mode” nutrients it needs, when it needs it.

So let’s make sure that when you wake up with those brand-new knees and hips… they stay pain-free all day long.

This is when your “day mode” nutrients needs to kick in to keep you feeling good and staying active…

I recommend starting each day with “day mode” nutrient, BOSWELLIA.

It’s been around for thousands of years, and was extremely valuable in ancient times.

In fact, it was even given to baby Jesus as a gift because of its powerful healing capabilities.

Back then, it was as valuable as gold.

But today, it’s well-known for its ability to maintain healthy inflammation levels.

It keeps you loose and limber by targeting 5-lipoxygenase, an enzyme that plays a key role in triggering your body’s inflammatory response.

It was shown in a recent double-blind, randomized, and placebo-controlled study to…

Reduce discomfort by 49%
Reduce stiffness by 48%
And improve joint function by 38%

All in just a SHORT 30 DAYS.

In a different 90 day study, participants who took this same “day mode” nutrient saw a…

61% improvement in their joint pain scores

60% improvement in their stiffness scores

And their overall function scores improved by 49%

Omni-Joint 24 makes this all possible for you with…

200 mg of valerian and hops, which give you TRIPLE the amount of slow-wave sleep you need in order to grow brand-new joints while you sleep like a baby.

UC-II Collagen which is 240% MORE EFFECTIVE than glucosamine and chondroitin reducing nighttime aches and pains.

Boswellia which showed a 49% reduction in joint discomfort and 48% reduction in joint stiffness in only 30 days!

Boron, which I like to call the “miracle nutrient”. It’s been shown to reduce joint discomfort and stiffness by 71%.

And hyaluronic acid, supporting healthy levels of the soft, squishy gel that cushions your movements as you go about your day.

Each box of Omni-Joint 24 comes with a 100% Money Back Anytime Guarantee.

Magnesium Oil

[Best Value] Magnesium Oil from Dead Sea, Triple Filter Sore Muscle Relief Livana Vegan Friendly By Livana 4 oz $6.97 p 4s... 8 oz $7.00

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil Ultra $21.95. 8 oz. by Enviromedica, Austin, Tx.

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil Ultra is a next generation formula incorporating the unique synergistic benefits of MSM and magnesium. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) has long been revered as a superior form of sulfur supplementation, but as a topical it may facilitate more efficient uptake of magnesium ions. Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil Ultra contains approximately 1.6g elemental magnesium and 3.6g of MSM (OptiMSM®) per fl oz. Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil Ultra utilizes premium distilled OptiMSM®, the world's purity standard for MSM.

Ingredients: Water, Genuine Zechstein magnesium chloride (and trace minerals), methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)

Magnesium oil isn’t actually an “oil” after all, but instead was coined as such due to the high saturation of magnesium chloride in water, which presents itself in an “oil-like” texture.

Ancient Minerals ultra pure magnesium oil is extracted from the Ancient Zechstein Seabed in Europe, 1600 to 2000 meters deep in the interior of the Earth. Well protected for the last 250 million years, it is the most pure magnesium oil in the world and a mark of purity on every bottle of Ancient Minerals.

Health Benefits of Magnesium Oil Often revered as the "Beautiful Mineral" in Chinese Medicine, magnesium oil is as essential to the body as water and air. The main benefits of Magnesium oil is undoubtedly being its absolute and undeniable healing powers. Although there are only a several ounces of magnesium oil in your body, it is implicated in hundreds of biochemical reactions in the body, scores of which contribute to the manufacture of energy and cardiovascular functions. Strong bones and teeth, radiant skin, balanced hormones, a healthy nervous system, and much more - all are made possible by magnesium sufficient cells.

While there are tremendous volumes of research paying tribute to the efficacy of magnesium supplementation in a wide range of health enhancing applications, not much attention has been directed at the method of delivery. Ancient Minerals brand magnesium products utilize an ultra-pure, highly concentrated form of naturally occurring magnesium chloride along with other trace minerals, for topical use.

Why topical? Because the skin is a living, breathing organ, and is not only the most efficient organ for detoxification, but also holds tremendous potential for re-mineralizing the body as well. So, what happens when you utilize the human body's most well functioning organ for absorption of one of the most life giving minerals available? A cornerstone for achieving vibrant health.

Some Ancient Minerals magnesium oil benefits include:

Restores cellular magnesium levels
Natural cellular protectant
Facilitates safe and effective detoxification
Relief of aches, pains, spasms
Elevates mood and relieves stress
Encourages healthy skin tissue
Helps maintain proper muscle function
Boosts energy levels
Supports a healthy immune system
Balances the hormonal system
Calms overactive nerves
Improves quality of sleep

Magnesium oil is a critical macro nutrient for human health. It is essential to more than 300 cellular processes, some of which include muscle & nerve function, heart rhythm, and peristalsis (muscular contractions of the digestive system).

Benefits of Magnesium oil lie in its structural integrity. Approximately 50% of total body magnesium oil is found in the bones. Also, this is required for your body to properly absorb calcium, and thus maintain strong bones & ligaments.

Since the human body is run by electricity, any disturbance in the flow of this electricity through the nervous system typically causes a great deal of pain and illness. Magnesium oil is responsible for the movement of electrically charged ions through the blood, as well as across nerve cell membranes. Healthy levels of magnesium oil maintain adequate electrical communication throughout the body.

Dr. Sidney Baker- "Magnesium deficiency can affect virtually every organ system of the body. With regard to skeletal muscle, one may experience twitches, cramps, muscle tension, muscle soreness, including back aches, neck pain, tension headaches and jaw joint (TMJ) dysfunction. Also, one may experience chest tightness or a peculiar sensation that he can't take a deep breath. Sometimes a person may sigh a lot."

Magnesium deficiency commonly occurs in critical illness and correlates with a higher mortality. Magnesium has been directly implicated in hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, tetany, and dysrhythmia. Moreover, magnesium may play a role in acute coronary syndromes, acute cerebral ischemia, and asthma. Magnesium regulates hundreds of enzyme systems. By regulating enzymes controlling intracellular calcium, magnesium affects blood flow, an important factor in several critical illnesses.

Dr. Jerry L. Nadler- “The link between diabetes mellitus and magnesium deficiency is well known." Magnesium is necessary for the production, function & transport of insulin.

A French doctor, Dr. A. Neveu, found magnesium chloride effective with asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia and emphysema; pharyngitis, tonsillitis, hoarseness, common cold, influenza, whooping cough, measles, rubella, mumps, scarlet fever; poisoning, gastro-enteritis, boils, abscesses, whitlow, infected wounds and osteomyelitis. In more recent years this list has been joined by more diseases which have been successfully treated: acute asthma attacks, shock, tetanus, herpes zoster, acute and chronic conjunctivitis, optic neuritis, rheumatic diseases, many allergic diseases, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and has had beneficial effects in cancer therapy. In all of these cases magnesium chloride had been used

In his book Holy Water, Sacred Oil, Dr. Norman Shealy documents almost ninety health issues that are directly related to magnesium deficiency. Additionally, Dr. Shealy draws a strong correlation between magnesium levels and DHEA levels. He has also determined that when the body is presented with adequate levels of magnesium at the cellular level, the body will begin to naturally produce DHEA and also DHEA-S.

Since DHEA is the primary bio-marker for aging, the long term use of large doses of magnesium in a usable form will significantly raise DHEA levels and thus produce true Age Reversal results. Dr. Shealy refers to DHEA as the Master Hormone. Sufficient levels of DHEA induce the production of all of the other hormones. The depletion of hormones is associated with many symptoms of aging. Stimulating a return to healthy and balanced levels of these hormones can bring about a regaining of youthful vitality. Indeed, through the use of magnesium oil, middle-aged women have reported complete abatement of menopausal symptoms and some have even returned to their menstrual cycle.

Dr. Shealy has stated that once anyone commences regular use of Magnesium Oil, the aging process has stopped and true age reversal has begun. Since we have stopped aging, time is no longer working against us. This brings about an incredible peace of mind and body.

Appropriate testing for magnesium and DHEA levels before and after regular magnesium oil use, even for a couple of months, will demonstrate dramatic elevations in both. Finally, with magnesium oil, you can significantly affect the many symptoms of magnesium deficiency, including such systemic conditions as osteoporosis. Reports indicate that after prolonged use of magnesium oil, clients with serious bone density issues have rebuilt bones so dense that they would be difficult to drill into and yet they remain flexible.

We will all eventually regain the optimum level of DHEA we had at about age 23. They have made the observation that when we get our DHEA levels to where they were 10, 15 or 20 years ago, we will very likely look and feel like we did 10, 15, or 20 years ago and, incidentally, many of the symptoms that crept into our lives during the last 10, 15, or 20 years will likewise disappear.

Using magnesium oil, truly astounding things can happen. Some people have reported the regrowth of deteriorated bone, cartilage, and even a regeneration of enamel on their teeth. Teeth have developed a pearly translucence as a result of regular brushing with magnesium oil. These same teeth became so hard that a dentist would have had trouble drilling into them… in the event that was ever required.

More frequently, sufferers of arthritis in its many forms have turned to magnesium oil for near-instant relief from pain. Long term users of magnesium oil have experienced an improvement in the health of their bones, ligaments, and the afflicted joints. Of important note is the use of magnesium oil by sufferers of fibromyalgia, who often enjoy quick relief of this crippling pain.

For skin, magnesium oil may be used to rejuvenate wrinkled or damaged skin. Graying hair can be fed back to health by massaging magnesium oil into it each evening and left on overnight. Even bald or balding areas of the scalp have a chance of recovery when infused with this powerful mineral. This can also be applied to age spots. To induce the healing of scar tissue, massage essential oils frankincense, myrrh, and magnesium oil into the scar.

The heart, circulatory system, and nervous system all depend heavily on magnesium. Any application of magnesium will feed all of these. More specifically, spraying magnesium oil directly over the heart, into the arm pits, behind the knees, and onto the tops of the feet will increase the coverage and whole body reception of magnesium.

DELIVERY SYSTEMS FOR MAGNESIUM

The supply of magnesium in a compound and its bioavailability determine the effectiveness of the magnesium source. Bioavailability refers to the amount of magnesium in food, medications, and supplements that is actually absorbed and ultimately available for biological activity in your cells and tissues.

Several methods exist for receiving magnesium into your body. Let's start with the most common:

DIETARY:

The best easily acquired food-sources of magnesium are whole grains, legumes, and vegetables (especially dark-green, leafy vegetables). Higher quality foods (i.e. organically grown with ocean minerals) will provide a better supply of usable magnesium, as well as other minerals and nutrients. Many superfoods & herbs contain above-average quantities of magnesium and will quicken the restoration of healthy magnesium levels. These include raw cacao beans, cayenne pepper, and stinging nettle to name just a few.

Increasing dietary intake of magnesium can often restore mildly depleted magnesium levels. However, dietary intake of magnesium may not be enough to restore very low magnesium levels to normal.

ORAL SUPPLEMENTATION (PILLS/LIQUID):

It is well known that oral supplementation of magnesium in any significant quantities will cause massive and prolonged diarrhea and is very likely to cause serious kidney damage. These side effects are completely avoided when using magnesium oil even with very large quantities and high frequency.

Magnesium pills with an enteric coating (this prevents the supplement from opening in the stomach) can decrease bioavailability. Magnesium tablets also may be prescribed, although some forms can cause diarrhea. It is important to have the cause, severity, and consequences of low blood levels of magnesium evaluated. People with a kidney disease may not be able to excrete excess amounts of magnesium; therefore it is risky for such people to consume magnesium supplements orally.

INTRAVENOUS SUPPLEMENTATION:

When blood levels of magnesium are very low, intravenous magnesium replacement is usually recommended. This typically occurs in emergency rooms and intensive care units. IV magnesium is invasive, uncomfortable, and requires a doctor to administer it. It is also a very expensive way to get magnesium.

TRANSDERMAL SUPPLEMENTATION:

Transdermal refers to absorption through the skin. This has been found to be the easiest, cheapest, and most effective method of acquiring magnesium. The reason this occurs is because it cuts out the middle man: your digestive system. Absorption of magnesium in the intestines is very low, the excess being flushed out with other bodily wastes. This often causes diarrhea and can lead to kidney damage if continued for a long period of time.

When supplementing magnesium through your skin, this problem is no longer an issue. Wherever magnesium oil is applied to the skin, it is absorbed very quickly and is able to be spot-applied to any point of the body that has an obvious need for it.

The quick appearance of results (often within a few days, up to a few months) while daily using magnesium oil dramatically lowers the cost in both time and money required to obtain replenished magnesium in your body.

USAGE INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAGNESIUM OIL

1. Spray once or twice onto any sore or aching joints. Massage into skin.

2. Spray into armpits, behind the knees, and onto the tops of the feet. Massage in. These areas target the lymph system.

3. Spray onto the chest, directly over the heart. This nourishes the heart, which uses magnesium to maintain normal rhythm.

4. Spray into your mouth and brush your teeth. Rinse and spit out. Do not swallow magnesium oil, because it is very concentrated.

5. Use magnesium oil during a massage. This increases the coverage of magnesium across your entire body, and further increases absorption and circulation.

6. Use in a bath. Pour ½ oz or more of magnesium oil into a bath, and soak for at least 30 minutes.

Pure ZECHSTEIN Mineral Magnesium Oil Spray for Restless Legs Syndrome Relief and Better Sleep. 100% Natural Large Bottle 10 fl oz & FREE Ebook included. by MAG Essentials $16.99 p 4s

Magnesium Oil HealthLine: Magnesium oil is made from a mixture of magnesium chloride flakes and water. When these two substances are combined, the resulting liquid has an oily feel, but isn’t technically an oil. Magnesium chloride is an easy-to-absorb form of magnesium that may be able to raise levels of this nutrient within the body when applied topically to the skin.

Magnesium is an important nutrient. It has multiple functions within the body. These include:

regulating nerve and muscle function
supporting healthy pregnancy and lactation
maintaining healthy blood sugar levels
maintaining optimum blood pressure levels
manufacturing and supporting protein, bone, and DNA health

Magnesium is found naturally in many foods. Its highest concentrations are found in:

whole grains
prickly pears
dairy products
legumes
nuts, and seeds
edamame
white potatoes
soy cheese
green, leafy vegetables, such as spinach and Swiss chard

It’s also added to some manufactured products, such as many breakfast cereals.

Magnesium deficiency has been linked to many conditions, some of which include:

asthma
diabetes
hypertension
heart disease
stroke
osteoporosis
pre-eclampsia
eclampsia
migraines
Alzheimer’s disease
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Much of the research done on magnesium supplementation and these conditions has centered on dietary magnesium in food and oral supplementation. While the benefits of magnesium supplementation appear to be significant, little research has been done to date on magnesium oil, which is delivered through the skin instead of orally.

However, one small study, reported in the Journal of Integrative Medicine, indicated that transdermal application of magnesium chloride on the arms and legs of people with fibromyalgia reduced symptoms, such as pain. Participants were asked to spray magnesium chloride four times on each limb, twice daily, for one month. Some people with fibromyalgia have too little magnesium in muscle cells. Most magnesium in the body is housed in either muscle cells or bone.

SIDE EFFECTS AND RISKS

It’s unclear whether topical magnesium oil has the same benefits as taking oral magnesium supplements or eating a diet rich in magnesium. If you’re concerned that you have a magnesium deficiency, or you simply wish to get more of this important nutrient into your system, talk about your concerns with your doctor or nutritionist.

If you decide to use magnesium oil, test it out on a small patch of skin to see if you have an adverse reaction. Some people experience stinging or a lingering burning sensation.

It may be hard to accurately determine dosage when using topical magnesium oil. Even so, it’s important not to overdo it. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommend that people do not exceed the upper limits of magnesium supplementation, which are based upon age. For adults and children older than 9, the upper limit recommended is 350 milligrams. Ingesting too much magnesium can cause diarrhea, cramps, and nausea. In cases of extreme intake, irregular heartbeat and cardiac arrest may occur.

Magnesium Oil Benefits Include Relief For Sore Muscles, Clear Skin & Boosted Immunity MindBodyGreen

Coconut, squalane, rosehip, argan—the list of wonder oils in wellness seems to be everlasting. There’s one more that should be on your radar if it's not already: magnesium oil. Magnesium has been lauded as a wonder element, and it’s easy to see why since the mineral is formed from the explosion of stars.

While it seems hard to top magnesium’s otherworldly creation, it can be overshadowed by its unparalleled role in many biological processes of the human body. In fact, the interaction between phosphate and magnesium ions make this mineral essential to the functioning of all cells in all living organisms. Magnesium is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions that contribute to healthy metabolic and immune functioning. Additionally, magnesium is critical for healthy bone development, and its deficiency has been linked to osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and even heart disease.

You might be asking yourself why magnesium seems to be cropping up everywhere. It’s because magnesium deficiency, known medically as hypomagnesemia, is pretty common. In fact, magnesium deficiency is conservatively estimated to affect 20 to 40 percent of the general population. The reason? Low dietary intake coupled with over-farmed soil chock-full of pesticides, lack of sleep, constant stress, and too much alcohol, caffeine, and sugar consumption.

Less than 10 percent of Americans meet the recommended dietary allowance. Most with magnesium deficiency may not even know it because they have no symptoms or minor ones. Despite the fact that this condition often flies under the radar, some health experts believe that magnesium deficiency is one of the largest and most under-addressed health problems. The symptoms vary from person to person and can range from general anxiety to restless leg. So be sure to ask your doctor if your magnesium levels are normal because it may be the root cause of any neuromuscular, cardiovascular, and metabolic dysfunction.

Truth be told, magnesium oil is really a misnomer. It’s not really an oil at all but gets the moniker from the slick, oil-like feeling that this highly saturated mineral oil leaves on the skin. And, like copper, this mineral can cause some confusion when choosing the one most appropriate for skin and overall body care. Magnesium oil is simply magnesium chloride suspended in water.

Though it's an ancient mineral that we’ve relied on since the beginning of time, science is just starting to uncover the multitude of ways that atomic No. 12 can support modern well-being. Since many people are magnesium deficient, it's often beneficial to integrate this mineral into your diet and self-care routine. Not only is magnesium oil a nice bathroom cupboard addition for those who need better balance within the body, but it is also a go-to for those who have chronic pain, insomnia, painful period cramps, and migraines.

MAGNESIUM IS NATURE'S PAINKILLER.

If any sort of body pain has you feeling out of commission, a magnesium oil massage may be just what you need. When applied topically, a healthy level of magnesium has been demonstrated to stave off nerve pain and help alleviate dull, aching chronic pain. Magnesium-infused bath salts and magnesium foot and hand lotions have grown ever more popular as some preliminary research shows that magnesium might help alleviate carpal tunnel pain. Even if you don’t have aches and pains, magnesium oil may catalyze the healing of injuries and improve overall athletic performance.

CRAMPS NO MORE.

Though magnesium is a potent analgesic, it’s also regarded as a natural relaxant. If you have bad cramping, be it charley horses that keep you up at night or painful menstrual cramps, magnesium oil can help to assuage intolerable pain. Magnesium is a natural antispasmodic.

In the body, magnesium functions as an electrolyte that is critical for muscle function.

Essentially, magnesium grants potassium entry into your hardworking muscle cells. Because of this interaction, it's vital for neuromuscular transmission and contraction. Therefore, when it’s lacking in the body, you may experience more frequent muscle spasms or cramping. While there is not much robust and methodologically sound research on magnesium’s antispasmodic properties, there exists evidence that supplementation relieves cramps in some patient populations, like pregnant women (of course, if you're pregnant and considering a change in your supplement regimen, talk to your doctor first).

Many proponents of magnesium suggest it’s worth experimenting with if you have predictably PAINFUL PERIOD cramps. In fact, magnesium may lessen PMS symptoms. But why just supplement when you can also get the added benefits of an abdominal massage? With the benefits of massage well-documented in the scientific literature, one study found that abdominal massage was effective in reducing dysmenorrhea, which would only strengthen the therapeutic benefit of any applied magnesium oil.

Does Your Pet Lie Around Day After Day? Could Be a Shortage of This If your pet lacks youthful energy, it could be he's outlived his ability to produce this enzyme. Correct that issue, and you could stop the signs of normal aging, while making him more alert and responsive. That means better companionship and more fun together for longer.

Ubiquinol for pets.

The Critical Nutrient Most Dog Foods Are Missing by Joshua Corn

It’s a bittersweet moment when it hits you that your best 4-legged friend is getting older.

Maybe you notice a lack of energy and playfulness. Or scratching at patches of dry, flakey skin and increased shedding. Or maybe your dog or cat struggles to jump onto a favorite chair and looks to you for help with those trusting eyes that say, “Please do something!”

I got that look from my dog Charlie often when he started to feel his age. He wasn’t sick, but it was clear he wasn’t himself. And he knew who to turn to.

After all, Charlie has been part of our family ever since my wife, two sons and I brought him home from the rescue shelter. He was always the first to leap into the car for a ride – always eager to romp and play.

So when he began hesitating by the open door, his eyes told the story.

Please do something!

You want to help. And today, you can.

You don’t have to sit by helplessly as aging takes its toll. In my research on Charlie’s behalf, I discovered how one essential nutrient famous for its human benefits can have the same amazing power to bring out the tail-wagging or purring “youngster” in your pet again.

Certainly, one of the biggest problems our dogs and cats face as they grow older is one we know very well ourselves, body-wide inflammation, which can impact vital organs such as the heart, brain and kidneys as well as joints and skin.

In fact, new 2015 research shows that joint issues among both dogs and cats has increased some 30% since 2010.

Simply put: Inflammation can turn your beloved pet’s senior years into a painful ordeal.

Thankfully, one family of nutrients — omega-3 fatty acids — stands out for its ability to promote a healthy inflammatory response in dogs and cats.

That’s right! The omega-3s DHA and EPA deliver great health benefits for your pet – from improving their coat and supporting their heart to nourishing their brain and reducing inflammation all over.

But here’s the rub: Just like humans, most dogs and cats do not get enough omega-3s from their diet to meet their optimal nutrition needs. The fact is, the corn and soy-fed meats and farm-raised fish found in typical pet food — even “premium” organic, grain-free pet foods — don’t contain omega-3s the way that “prey in the wild” would provide.

As a result, your pet may be missing out on a nutrient that holds the key to aging in comfort. Because of its far-reaching anti-inflammatory benefits, many experts believe that ample omega-3s for dogs and cats can do a world of good to…

Support a healthy heart and cardiovascular system
Keep pets mentally sharp, alert and playful
Promote a healthy inflammatory response and relieve joint aches and pains
Support eye health
And even keep their coats looking vibrant and beautiful

To help Charlie in his advancing years I needed to learn more, so I turned to my friend Dr. Katy Nelson at the Belle Haven Animal Medical Centre in Alexandria, VA for her expert advice.

You may have seen Dr. Nelson on the Today show, Fox & Friends or The Meredith Vieira Show, or heard her on SiriusXM radio. She’s a leader among today’s new wave of veterinarians who advocate safe, natural solutions for pets whenever possible.

If anyone has the knowledge and experience to help, it’s Dr. Nelson. She confirmed that getting enough omega-3s is indeed the #1 critical nutrient deficiency for dogs and cats of all ages that she commonly sees in her clinic. And to my delight, she didn’t stop there.

Other Key Nutrients Also Fight Harmful Inflammation

You see, omega-3s aren’t the only “super-nutrients” that help fight inflammation and its damage. Dr. Nelson also recommended:

Hyaluronic acid, which helps maintain the cushioning cartilage in joints and replenish the synovial fluid that lubricates them. Hyaluronic acid helps your pets’ knees and other joints absorb the stresses of an active daily life.

Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant extracted from algae shown to be incredibly effective against free radicals that trigger inflammation and joint breakdown

Vitamins A, C, and E, the well-known antioxidants that support vision, promote immune health, and neutralize harmful free radicals

Needless to say, you won’t find more than a sprinkling of these nutrients in typical pet foods, even premium brands, if you find them at all. Most pet foods provide only the bare minimum nutrition you dog or cat truly needs.

I certainly wasn’t about to cut any corners that would shortchange Charlie and jeopardize his health. So I followed Dr. Nelson’s advice to a T.

The result is called Charlie’s Choice ProMega3 PLUS™.

Blood Sugar Shield

Proven to lower blood sugar levels overnight with ZERO side effects The roots of this pink flower allow you to reset your body's blood-sugar-regulation system.

And literally by the next morning, folks have their blood sugar levels down 20 mg/dl closer to normal.

...within 1 week, those levels are over 75 mg/dl closer to normal.

...within 3 weeks, most folks have completely healthy levels!

All from just a couple seconds each day to balance blood sugar & melt pounds without changing your diet, and without any side effects.

"...Helps Type 2 Diabetics control their blood sugar and flatten their belly" -- Newsweek Magazine

Written by the Father of Chinese Medicine, it was hidden in plain sight for thousands of years.

When it was finally discovered and deciphered, it revealed the little-known worst enemies of healthy blood sugar - what researchers are calling “The Two Deadly Blood Sugar Parasites.”

It also revealed an asian flower – related to the buttercup – that fights those two parasites to support healthy blood sugar.

BUT THE MAINSTREAM MEDICAL INDUSTRY WANTS TO SWEEP THESE DISCOVERIES BACK UNDER THE RUG.

You may not have heard his name, but he influences your health every day. He’s probably even saved your life.

The writer was Shen Nong, the Father of Chinese Medicine.

Researchers searched desperately for his lost scroll for thousands of years.

They knew Shen Nong’s lost book – this “Old Testament of Natural Health” – would change the world.

He was the first doctor in history, the first to devote his life to the health of others.

He created acupuncture, which has since soothed the ailments and improved the lives of hundreds of millions of people.

He was even the first to discover tea, and all its medical benefits.

SHEN NONG STUDIED AND TESTED OVER 360 DIFFERENT HERBS TO DISCOVER THEIR MEDICAL BENEFITS

You’ve probably heard about the medical benefits of ginseng: weight loss, brain health, and soothing inflammation. We only know that because of Shen Nong.

Or maybe you’ve heard how sesame improves skin health and reduces your risk of heart disease… Or how honeysuckle supports both your digestive and respiratory systems… Or how ginger can reduce muscle pain and cure nausea… Or all the medical uses for asparagus, peony, or ephedra? It’s thanks to Shen Nong that we know the health-boosting properties of these herbs.

In fact, independent medical studies from
the Chinese Journal of Integrative Medicine,1
and the Journal of Pharmacology2 have
found that many of Shen Nong’s natural
methods are more effective than surgery!

You can see why he’s called the Father of Chinese Medicine.

Not only did he develop basic medical principles like measuring your pulse, but his herbal discoveries became the basis of some of the most common drugs today.

Aspirin, for example, was developed from willow bark – an herb that Shen Nong wrote about 5000 years ago.

my name is Dr. Ryan Shelton. I’m the medical director at Zenith Labs®. My background is in clinical and investigative research in the fields of holistic medicine, herbal medicine, and skin care.

Shen Nong’s book had been missing for thousands of years, and it seemed it would be lost forever…

…Until a part-time librarian noticed something strange on a shelf in the back room.

It was a book of Ancient Chinese legends, and inside was a page of information on life-saving herbs.

All the words on that page were written in red ink.

She later found a similar page in a book on Chinese history. Again, all the text in red.

Then in another book, and another.

Researchers caught word of what she’d found, and connected a few dots.

That red ink meant something special.

See, ancient Chinese authors didn’t think about plagiarism like you and I might. It was perfectly okay to copy chapters of other writers’ books and put them in your own.

Now, Shen Nong was so important – even in his own time – that these writers wanted to make sure they set his words apart from everyone else’s.

So while all the original copies of his lost “Old Testament of Natural Health” were gone forever, the words from that book had been preserved by other writers.

Researchers combed through every ancient Chinese book they could get their hands on, finding red text that ancient writers had copied word-for-word from Shen Nong.

From those passages, they pieced together Shen Nong’s forgotten book.

The ancient Chinese secret to maintain blood sugar comes from a flower called… THE CHINESE GOLDTHREAD

If you saw it in the wild, you’d just think it was a buttercup.

But Shen Nong knew it for its healing properties.

And in fact, there are close relatives of the Chinese Goldthread with the same herbal properties that grow right here in the United States.

Modern researchers have analyzed Chinese Goldthread, and extracted its healing essence… IT’S A MOLECULE CALLED BERBERINE.

Berberine helps combat the Two Deadly Blood Sugar Parasites.

The first parasite is inflamed cells.

Certain proteins and lipids become too active in your body, and they cause inflammation in your cells. Those irritated cells lead to unbalanced blood sugar.

Berberine helps support a natural, healthy balance in inflammation in your cells, which helps keep your blood sugar balanced.

According to a study published in the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Berberine lowers the activity of those certain proteins and lipids. It supports a healthy inflammatory response in your body, and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

A scientific review, published by the Institute of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine, declared that, “studies have shown that Berberine could inhibit the absorption of glucose, and eliminate intestinal inflammation.

The second deadly blood parasite are the fat deposits that strangle your pancreas.

Your pancreas’ number one job is keeping your blood sugar levels healthy. So when fat deposits start squeezing and crushing your pancreas, it can’t do its job as well. And that can affect your blood sugar.

Luckily, Berberine breaks down those fat deposits.

Researchers at the Huazhong University of Science and Technology – one of the top medical schools in the world – discovered that Berberine can break down fat deposits around the pancreas, and prevent new fat deposits from forming.

Another study, published in the journal Pharmacological Research, tested 3,000 patients to show that Berberine contributed to healthy blood sugar, and lower plasma lipids – the type of fat that clings to your pancreas.

With those fat deposits gone, your pancreas more easily performs its natural function of helping maintain healthy blood sugar.

This miracle molecule has even displayed other benefits, like helping promote heart health…

The Chinese Goldthread plant was the first source we knew about, but there are others. Some you can find in your own backyard! Like the California Poppy, Yellowroot, and the Amur Cork tree. Although for the best results, you do need to get it from exactly the right source, but I’ll cover that more in a minute.

I Found Two Other Ingredients That Amplify Berberine’s Results!

The first is called Curcumin, which comes from Turmeric Root, and it supports your body’s natural balance of insulin sensitivity and insulin resistance. Curcumin is a principle building block of turmeric, a type of ginger.

A medical study performed at the University of Malaysia Medical Center in the journal discovered that – like Berberine – Curcumin also supports a natural, healthy inflammatory state in your cells.

Researchers at the Hokkaido University School of Medicine in Japan, discovered that Curcumin protects the muscles and bone health of people with blood sugar concerns, and helps prevent annoying aches and pains!

But taken by itself, Curcumin won’t work. You have an enzyme in your liver called “UGT” that latches onto Curcumin and breaks it down before it can do its job.

Which is why I recommend Curcumin always be taken with Piperine, so you can get the full, blood sugar supporting synergy… Piperine comes from the black pepper plant. It breaks down the UGT in your liver before that UGT can destroy the Curcumin, allowing Curcumin to do its job of helping maintain your natural insulin sensitivity.

And on top of that, two studies published in the Journal of Food Chemistry and the Chinese Pharmacology Bulletin showed that… Piperine has its own blood sugar balancing properties. Both found that Piperine increased insulin sensitivity, which helps regulate blood sugar.

Even more exciting, Piperine is a natural fat-loss booster. Researchers published in the journal Chemico-Biological Interactions said…

“Our study concludes that Piperine can be well considered as an effective bioactive molecule to suppress body weight, improve insulin and lipid sensitivity, ultimately leading to regulate [body weight].”

I helped him find natural, high quality sources of all three ingredients. And I showed him the precise ratio and amount that would be most effective.

I worked with them to design and create a supplement that provides you with the highest quality Berberine, Curcumin, and Piperine, and has the precise amounts and ratios that will support healthy blood sugar. It's called...

What You Need to Know About Your Fascia Mercola

Your fascia, the fibrous connective tissue found throughout your body, accounts for about 20 percent of your body mass

Your fascia stores and moves water, and carries voltage, acting like an electrical wiring system

Fascia may play a significant role in pain, especially back pain. The reason for this is because the fascia is one interconnected system, and when it loses its suppleness, pain can transfer from one region to another

Fascia is made up of fibroblasts — cells that produce collagen and other fibers — held together by a surrounding matrix.

Physical inactivity causes the fascia to tighten and become less supple

The fascia’s ability to slide plays a major role in back pain. Fascia in people without back pain can slide about 75 percent of its length; in people with back pain, this movement is reduced to about 50 percent

The 2018 DW Documentary, “The Mysterious World Beneath the Skin,” delves into the workings and functions of your fascia, the fibrous connective tissue found throughout your body. Remarkably, this thin layer of tissue accounts for about 20 percent of your body mass.

As explained by Dr. Jerry Tennant in his book, “Healing Is Voltage: The Handbook,” your muscles are stacked one on top of the other in a specific order (much like batteries in a flashlight) to form a power pack. Each organ has its own battery pack, which is a stack of muscle batteries.

These muscle batteries are in turn surrounded by fascia, which acts as a semiconductor — an arranged metabolic molecule designed to move electrons at the speed of light, but only in one direction.

Together, the muscle stack and the surrounding fascia serve as the wiring system for your body, carrying the voltage from the muscle battery inside, out, through the fascia and to the appropriate organ. In addition to moving electricity, fascia also acts as a hydraulic pump, and is responsible for moving fluid around your body.

As noted by Dr. Dana Cohen, a doctor of internal medicine and author of “Quench: Beat Fatigue, Drop Weight, and Heal Your Body Through the New Science of Optimum Hydration,” a book about optimizing hydration, your fascia is actually a movement system for water in your body. To activate this system — and optimize cellular hydration — you have to engage in physical movement.

Pain Transfers Through Fascia

Fascia has long been overlooked, but its functions are now starting to be investigated at greater depth. According to the featured film, fascia may actually play a significant role in pain, especially back pain. The reason for this is because the fascia is one interconnected system, and when it loses its suppleness, pain can transfer from one region to another.

In other words, when you experience pain in an area, the actual cause and origin of that pain often stems from a completely different area. For example, Thomas Myers,1 an expert on fascia and coauthor of “Fascial Release for Structural Balance,” says he gets the best, long-term results in patients presenting with plantar fasciitis when treating the fascia in the lower leg, hamstrings or even the base of the neck.

According to Myers, the low back is a weak spot for most people, but the fact that it hurts there doesn’t mean a back problem is causing the pain. The pain may be sourced in the arches of your feet, knees, hips or shoulders, for example. Jan Wilke, Ph.D., is conducting sports medicine experiments in an effort to verify the anatomical chains proposed by Meyers and others.

His findings confirm that, for example, when moving the foot, the fascia in the lower thigh does glide back and forth, and by stretching the leg, mobility in the upper cervical spine of the neck increases. These findings suggest there is in fact a “force transmission across the fascia connections.” Wilke also suspects force is transmitted not only vertically throughout the body, but also horizontally, which is what Myers contends.

The film also features Dr. Jean-Claude Guimberteau, a French hand surgeon, who singlehandedly has changed how medical professionals view fascia. While fascia has previously only been investigated using cadavers, Guimberteau wanted to understand its workings better in order to improve his own surgical techniques.

He came up with the ingenious idea to insert an electron microscope camera under the skin of a live patient. Footage is included in the film, but you can also see the water movement in action in the short video above. “It seems totally chaotic, but it isn’t,” Guimberteau says, adding the fascia is “a perfectly efficient system,” and one that makes life possible.

As noted in the film, “fascia exists everywhere in the body, in many shapes and consistencies.” Surface fascia is located directly beneath your skin, whereas deep fascia surrounds your muscles and organs, including your brain. Dr. Carla Stecco, who is also featured in the film, has made great contributions to our understanding of fascia by producing the first atlas of the human fascial system.

This is the first time in human medical history that the entire fascial system of the human body has been systematically documented. Research by Robert Schleip, Ph.D., reveals fascia is made up of fibroblasts — cells that produce collagen and other fibers — held together by a surrounding matrix. Essentially, the fascia is primarily built out of collagen.

Physical Movement Is Essential for Healthy Fascia

Collagen is what allows your body to close a wound and is an important part of your body’s healing system. However, too much collagen can cause problems, and excessive collagen growth is a result of inactivity. One test showed that after keeping a broken arm in a sling for three weeks, the connective tissue had already begun to overgrow.

What Schleip’s research shows is that exercise is extremely important to maintain healthy fascia function — a finding that prompted Schleip himself to start doing daily jump rope exercises. Without adequate physical movement and exercise, the connective tissue structures start to overgrow, losing flexibility and suppleness. As mentioned earlier, cellular hydration is also impeded.

Overly tight fascia can even compress nerves and muscles, resulting in pain, either at the site or elsewhere in your body, via force transmission. The fascia is arranged in two layers, and when you move, those layers slide back and forth across each other. Healthy fascia has the ability to shift or slide about 75 percent of its total length.

This sliding ability, it turns out, plays an enormous role in back pain specifically. When comparing the fascia in people with and without back pain, fascia researcher Dr. Helene Langevin3 discovered that the main difference between the two is the ability of the fascia in their back to slide across each other with ease. Whereas healthy fascia can move about 75 percent of its length, in people with back pain, this movement is reduced to about 50 percent.

Like Schleip, Langevin believes excess collagen production is responsible for this reduction in the fascia layers’ ability to slide. Animal experiments demonstrate that exercise can counteract this overproduction, further confirming Schleip’s findings.

Healthy Fascia Is Important for Inflammation Control, Wound Healing and Pain Relief

Langevin also found that inflammation is decreased and wound healing is sped up through movement, such as gentle stretching. Why is that? Langevin found that when you stretch, the fibroblasts expand by up to 200 percent. The expansion of the cell causes it to transmit chemical signals ordering the muscle to relax. Langevin explains:

“What we found is that the stiffness of the connective tissue is actively regulated, minute by minute, by the fibroblasts. So, this is a dynamic, active cellular regulation of connective tissue tension. That could be important, because what we’re finding is that when you do acupuncture for example on the tissue, fibroblasts actually respond and expand and that helps the tissue relax. The same thing [occurs] with stretching.”

Another fascinating fact about fascia: It responds and contracts — completely independently of the muscles, nerves and organs it surrounds — to chemical messengers. Even more interesting, Schleip has discovered fascia responds not only to chemical messengers of inflammation but also to chemicals associated with emotional stress.

“It was a breakthrough for us to learn that the fascia also reacts to that, very, very slowly and sustainably,” Schleip says. This is more scientific proof supporting the idea that emotional stress can cause physical tension and pain. Last year, I wrote about the late Dr. John Sarno, who exclusively used mind-body techniques to treat patients with severe back pain.

He believed you unconsciously cause your own pain, and that pain is your brain’s response to unaddressed stress, anger or fear. The fact that fascia responds to your emotional state (via the chemicals produced by these states), helps explain why Sarno had such a remarkable success rate.

The culprit in question is a signaling molecule known as TGF, the release of which is triggered by stress. “If I’m tensed up for weeks, even in my sleep, it’s mainly the red muscle fibers that are tense. [But] they relax fairly quickly. It’s the white fascia tissue, the sheath around the muscle … that [gets] hard,” Schleip says.

Fascia Tensegrity

The fascial system is now thought of as a tensegrity system. Tensegrity is a combination of the words “tension” and “integrity,” and tensegrity modeling helps us understand how the fascia works as a complete system to hold your body together.

The conventional view of the skeleton as a more or less rigid structure of connected bones is extremely misleading. As explained by Myer, your skeletal bones actually float freely, completely separated from each other. What holds the bones together is the connective tissue system. Were you to magically remove all the connective tissue in your body, your bone structure would collapse in a heap on the floor.

Similarly, the conventional view of the spine is that it’s a rigid “pole” of stacked vertebrae with cushioning discs in between. The tensegrity counter model, demonstrated by Schleip, reveals a very different picture of the spine. The vertebrae do not actually rest on or press down on each other.

Rather they too are free floating, held together by the tension of the connective tissue. As long as the fascia maintains the proper amount of tension on each vertebra, your spine will remain erect and pain free — even if you have disc degeneration.

The Importance of Water

As mentioned in the beginning, fascia also plays a crucial role in the movement of water. In fact, the connective tissue is made up of about 70 percent water, and physical movement helps keep this water moving. Hyaluronic acid acts as a lubricant for your connective tissue. As explained in the film, the hyaluronic acid forms a “sponge-like network that binds large quantities of water.”

As a result, the less hyaluronic acid you have, the less mobile you are, as your fascia will be drier, less supple and less able to slide properly. Here again, movement has been shown to be a crucial component. Low water content in the fascia makes it brittle and less elastic. Experiments reveal manual fascia manipulation techniques such as Rolfing help increase water reserves and suppleness of the fascia.

The force of the pressure appears to be key. When sufficient pressure was exerted on the fascia, it would actually fill up with more water once the pressure was released than it had before the pressure was applied. In other words, Rolfing helps press the old water out of the connective tissue, encouraging it to refill with fresh reserves.

If done hard enough, several times, the connective tissue ends up moister than it was before. The reason for this appears to be that hyaluronic acid flushes in along with the water, thereby improving the tissue’s ability to hold water. Massage, if done deeply and slowly enough, will also help. However, the most effective strategy is active movement.

The Importance of Exercise Recovery

With regular exercise, the fibroblasts increase their ability to produce fresh collagen. You can actually improve the quality of your fascia in as little as three days of active movement. However, severely agglutinated fascia — connective tissue that is firmly stuck together due to excess collagen production, caused by inactivity — can take up to one year to completely regenerate.

As you exercise, small tears in the fascia will occur, just as micro tears in your muscle occur during strength training. To allow the fascia to regenerate and heal, you’ll want to recuperate for two to three days after vigorous exercise. Schleip recommends “alternating high doses of tensile stress with a two- to three-day break.”

Is Fascia Pain Sensitive?

Dr. Siegfried Mense,4 professor of anatomy at the University of Heidelberg, is studying whether fascia itself is sensitive to pain, which would necessitate it to contain some sort of nerve fibers or nerve endings. Indeed, Mense discovered back fascia contains rather dense clusters of nerve fibers.

In other words, the fascia does have pain receptors, and this too may help explain otherwise inexplicable back pain. The question is, how can you determine whether the pain originates in the fascia or in the muscle? This can be quite difficult. That said, tests reveal that the pain response of the fascia is greater than that of the muscle itself.

As noted in the film, the fascia is really a “key organ of sensory perception,” and since stress has a direct impact on this connective tissue, that means your central nervous system is also a key component. Your sympathetic nervous system connects your brain to virtually every organ in your body. When triggered, your sympathetic nervous system responds with “fight or flight.”

A hypothesis brought forth by Mense is that the sympathetic nervous system may influence fascia via sympathetic nerve fibers embedded in the connective tissue. When those fibers are irritated through stress, chemicals are released that cause blood vessels to contract, thereby causing reduced blood flow and pain. He believes this may explain why many experience worsening back pain when they’re stressed.

Take Care of Your Fascia for Optimal Health

As you can see, your fascia is a vastly underestimated component of your body. The good news is it’s fairly simple to optimize the function and health of your connective tissue. All you need to do is to move your body more. Walk more. Exercise more. Stretch. There are many reasons to get more movement into your day, and now you can add caring for your fascia to that list. Doing so may help address any number of different aches and pains, especially back pain.

Fight Harmful Inflammation Markers

When your body has inflammation, your liver makes C-reactive protein (CRP). But with arthritis, this process goes into overdrive. So CRP is a good indicator of inflammation and arthritis.

Hyaluronic acid: How to unlock its full potential

Hyaluronic acid (HA) occurs naturally in our bodies. It’s a major component of joint and connective tissue. HA’s most important job is to cushion the linings of joints to protect them from impact and trauma. That’s why it is a major weapon against arthritis…

If you have osteoarthritis, one enzyme plays a major role in destroying your joints. This enzyme dissolves cartilage, taking away the protective padding in your joints. Luckily, hyaluronic acid can inhibit this enzyme and protect your joints from more attacks.

Hyaluronic acid is fairly well known for its treatment of osteoarthritis, particularly of the knee. Taken orally, it’s been shown to help improve quality of life.

But there’s a problem.

Oral hyaluronic acid doesn’t always get to where it needs to go: namely, your joints. It’s a large molecule. That makes it hard for your body to access it from your intestinal tract. But if you take it along with a substance rich in phospholipids (like krill oil), your body has an easier time with absorption. Blood levels go way up. When you multiply the effectiveness, your joints are able to get the help they need. That’s why KRILL OIL is an ideal partner for hyaluronic acid.

In a study using a combination of krill oil, hyaluronic acid, and astaxanthin, pain dropped 55 percent in less than three months. Even better—68 percent of the participants were totally pain-free by the end of the study. And for 30 percent of them, the pain was gone in just two weeks.

L-Glutamine

Myers L-G

L-Glutamine: A Complete Guide To This Gut-Healing Amino Acid mbg

As an integrative gastroenterologist, one of the most common things I get asked is "How do I heal my gut?" This is my favorite question because it opens the door to allow me to really and truly make an impact on someone's health, which is the reason I became a doctor in the first place.

Oftentimes, L-glutamine is one of the major supplements that comes up. This common supplement is becoming more popular every day and is found in many leaky gut and gut-healing formulations. So let's talk about L-glutamine supplements and their benefits and side effects.

L-glutamine is an amino acid, and amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which all of our bodies need to function. As you probably already know, our cells and muscles need protein to carry out their functions as well. L-glutamine supplements are becoming more popular by the day. They are mostly found in a powder form that you add to a glass of water or smoothie, but L-glutamine can also be ingested by way of a few supplement capsules.

L-glutamine has a wide variety of functions (many of which we'll learn about later in this article), but one of the most exciting is its ability to help with leaky gut.

L-glutamine benefits.

As I mentioned before, L-glutamine has many benefits. One study showed that taking a glutamine supplement resulted in decreased muscle soreness after eccentric exercise, and this amino acid also can be used in those getting treatment for head and neck cancer because it reduces the incidence of getting inflammation in the mouth and painful swallowing. This allows treatment to continue without added interruptions. In this setting, the glutamine supplement is providing a protective coating to the mouth and esophagus and boosting the healing capacity of the cells. L-glutamine has also shown promise for other conditions, such as:

1. L-glutamine for fatty liver disease.

Fatty liver is one of the most common conditions I see in my office as an integrative gastroenterologist; this is largely due to lifestyle and dietary patterns that most people follow. One of the leading causes of liver disease and need for liver transplantation in this country is fatty liver and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, also known as NASH. People with this condition may also have blood sugar problems, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, and/or obesity. Data from a recent study demonstrated that taking a glutamine supplement protected mice from the progression of liver disease from NASH, and prior literature suggested that glutamine could help prevent the development of NASH altogether.

2. L-glutamine for the immune system.

Another interesting study showed that mice who were given glutamine got an immune system boost and had reduced rates of reactivation of herpes infection. This research further supports that glutamine may play a role in contributing to a more robust immune system. Along these lines, a review of the literature on glutamine suggested that supplementation reduced the rate of hospital-acquired infections, shortened length of hospital stay, and reduced the rate of in-patient mortality. We should note, however, that many of these studies suggested associations and did not reach statistical significance. Nonetheless, this is still an interesting observation.

3. L-glutamine for inflammatory bowel disease.

One of the settings in which glutamine supplements are used the most is with inflammatory bowel diseases, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. These are conditions that can present with ulcers in the digestive tract as a result of an autoimmune attack to the bowel. It may not be unreasonable to use L-glutamine in this setting because there is some data to suggest that it could block activation of the pro-inflammatory mediators NF-kB (nuclear factor kB) and STAT (signal transducer and activator of transcription) and thereby reduce the expression of inflammatory cytokines, which are implicated in contributing to inflammation in this setting.

In my practice, I find that L-glutamine can be useful in reducing symptoms of diarrhea and can help reduce inflammation and ulcers. The same article also looked at other studies and suggested that glutamine supplementation in general seems to help regulate the growth of intestinal cells, maintain the gut's tight junctions, influence inflammatory cascades, and protect against cell death and stresses, among other functions.

Indeed, L-glutamine is an important amino acid when it comes to gut health! This has much greater implications than just inflammation in the gut and inflammatory bowel disease. We know that over 70 percent of our immune system is in the gut. Therefore, autoimmune conditions—such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis, fibromyalgia, and many others—could potentially be influenced by glutamine supplementation. Certainly, further studies are needed to examine each of these conditions individually to prove or disprove this hypothesis. However, there seems to be good evidence that glutamine supplementation can play a role in reducing leaky gut, which is an underlying process that drives many immune and autoimmune conditions.

L-glutamine side effects and safety concerns.

I should mention that, while there seems to be strong data for the use of L-glutamine in many different situations, there is also a large body of conflicting research as well. That is why it's important to consult with an integrative-medicine- or functional-medicine-certified practitioner to discuss whether or not it may be a good idea for you to take this important amino acid as a supplement.

The other thing to consider would be potential side effects and drug interactions. Generally speaking, L-glutamine is well-tolerated. Some studies that used particular preparations of glutamine were associated with some adverse effects, including swelling of the extremities, gastrointestinal symptoms (such as constipation), headache, fever, and infections.

As far as interactions are concerned, there is some suggestion that glutamine can reduce the ammonia-lowering effect of lactulose, so in those that have liver cirrhosis and hepatic encephalopathy, this may not be the best choice of supplement. Additionally, glutamine could increase tumor retention of methotrexate and increase its efficacy as a therapy, but this is something that should only be done in coordination with a trained cancer specialist.

L-glutamine is an important amino acid that is essential to our gut and immune health and integrity. It can potentially help with a wide variety of dysfunctions from irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea to inflammatory bowel disease to supporting your blood sugar regulation, metabolism, liver function, and detoxification capacities. It is often found in formulations that are designed to help treat leaky gut. So it's certainly worth talking to your health care provider about as you go through your gut-healing journey!







Bad Additives

If you take dietary supplements, beware of this ingredient New research warns of supplements containing the potentially harmful cardiovascular stimulant known as higenamine.

The problem is that many of them don’t deliver on their claims, and even worse, may contain harmful ingredients. In the U.S., supplements do not require FDA approval before hitting the shelves; and in fact, the FDA has to prove a supplement is not safe before they can remove it from the market.

Which may be the reason why some 23,000 people a year end up in the emergency room after taking a supplement.

A new peer-reviewed study of weight-loss and sports/energy supplements found "unpredictable and inaccurately labeled dosages" of the potentially harmful cardiovascular stimulant, higenamine – which also goes by the names "norcoclaurine" and "demethylcoclaurine." Two years ago the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) prohibited higenamine for use in sports.

15 harmful supplement ingredients to avoid Consumer Reports finds a number of ingredients found in popular supplements from trusted retailers can cause organ damage, cardiac arrest, and cancer.

The lack of regulation is an anomaly in the United States, it’s more like the wild west than modern day business. High profit margin anarchy. How bad is it? Some 23,000 people a year end up in the emergency room after taking a supplement. Dozens of deaths have been reported.

1. Aconite

Also called Camellia sinensis. Used for weight loss, can lead to dizziness, ringing in the ears, reduced absorption of iron; exacerbates anemia and glaucoma; elevates blood pressure and heart rate; liver damage; possibly death.

8'. Higenamine
harmful cardiovascular stimulant – which also goes by the names "norcoclaurine" and "demethylcoclaurine."

9. Kava
Also known as ava pepper, kava kava, and piper methysticum. Is supposed to help with anxiety and insomnia. Can lead to liver damage, exacerbates Parkinson's and depression, impairs driving, and possibly death.

10. Lobelia
Also known as asthma weed, lobelia inflata, vomit wort, or wild tobacco. Used to improve respiratory problems and help smoking cessation. Can lead to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tremors, rapid heartbeat, confusion, seizures, hypothermia, coma, and possibly death.

Also called oxilofrine, p-hydroxyephedrine, oxyephedrine, or 4-HMP. Used for weight loss, to increase energy, and improve athletic performance. Risks include heart rate and rhythm abnormalities, cardiac arrest; particularly risky when taken with other stimulants.

12. Pennyroyal Oil
Also called hedeoma pulegioides, or mentha pulegium. Supposed benefits include improvement of breathing problems and digestive disorders. Can lead to liver and kidney failure, nerve damage, convulsions, and possibly death.

13. Red Yeast Rice
Also called monascus purpureus. Claimed benefits include lowering LDL ("bad") cholesterol and preventing heart disease. Risks include kidney and muscle problems, liver problems, hair loss; can magnify effect of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, increasing the risk of side effects.

14. Usnic Acid
Also called beard moss, tree moss, or usnea. It’s used for weight loss and pain relief; risks include liver injury.

15. Yohimbe
Also known as johimbi, pausinystalia yohimbe, yohimbine, or corynanthe johimbi. Claimed benefits include the treatment of low libido and erectile dysfunction, depression, and obesity. Risks include raised blood pressure; rapid heart rate, headaches, seizures, liver and kidney problems, heart problems, panic attacks, and possibly death.

So what do you think? It feels like quite a pickle to me. While so many of us are striving to ditch pharmaceuticals – which can be so rife with problems – an unregulated market and a careless quest for profit seem to be jeopardizing holistic options. Until better regulation and more transparency are working together to ensure consumer safety, it may be wise to heed Consumer Reports’ advice to avoid these offenders?

After reading about the lengthy benefits of fulvic acid supplements, I bought drops from some generic brand that was on the cheaper side. I wasn't too impressed with the results so I decided to do a little research and get the real stuff - enter DROP. After trying these drops for 5 weeks (10 drops/day), I can confidently say this is the real deal and they are very effective. These drops give me that extra boost of energy that is crucial for recovery in my post-workout routine - not to mention all the vitamins it's packed with so I don't have to take 20 different pills. They also help balance my pH, which has always been on the acidic side - probably has to do with my 3 cups of coffee a day! Taste wise - there is none. Put it in anything and you won't notice.

The bottle says to take 2 teaspoons per day, but i just tried one spoon in a little water and within about 5 minutes i really did experience a kind of 'Rush' sensation! I think as its so potent you have to start slowly and build up to two teaspoons. This product cotains all the minerals and micro minerals that our bodies need to function properly. Im sure over time i will see the benefits. Its quite expensive, but so worth it and iHerb or course are the cheapest! Thank you iHerb and thank you Sun Warrior.

Q. My wife and I tried golden raisins and gin for arthritis and we were unimpressed. We have discovered something else, though, that seems to work for us.

Take two teaspoons of Certo dissolved in three ounces of grape juice. Do this three times a day. We have been told to cut back to one teaspoon Certo in grape juice twice a day after the joints quit aching.

We buy Certo in the grocery store near the canning jars. It’s simple and cheap and seems to be helping. I am on Coumadin (warfarin) so I can’t take anti-inflammatory drugs like Advil or Aleve.

As for the mechanism, we can only speculate. Pectin has been shown to lower cholesterol and blood sugar (European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, May, 2012). It may also have anticancer activity.

Grape juice contains antioxidant polyphenols that have anti-inflammatory properties. These compounds also dilate blood vessels and improve circulation. They may enhance immune function.

CAUTION: There are several formulas to choose from when preparing Certo and grape juice. We discourage people from making large batches, in part because of a warning about benzene formation caused by a chemical reaction between the preservative sodium benzoate and citric or ascorbic acid.

Powdered pectin (Pomona’s Universal Pectin) is made from citrus fruit peel and contains no preservatives or additives and therefore should eliminate any worry.

Pectin, Dr.Axe Fiber-Packed Pectin Helps Treat High Cholesterol & Diabetes

Pectin is a carbohydrate that’s extracted from fruits, vegetables and seeds. The main use for pectin is as a gelling agent, thickening agent and stabilizer in food. It’s sold commercially as a white- to light-brown powder that is extracted from citrus fruits. Companies commonly use pectin in food as a gelling agent, particularly in jams and jellies. Pectin is also used in fillings, medicines, laxatives, throat lozenges, sweets, fruit juices, milk drinks and as a source of dietary fiber.

Nutrition-rich pears, apples, guavas, quince, plums, oranges and other citrus fruits contain large amounts of pectin, while soft fruits like cherries and strawberries contain small amounts of pectin. Because pectin is a high source of fiber, it’s commonly used in a high-fiber diet to treat constipation and digestive issues. It’s also known to naturally lower cholesterol, fight diabetes and support weight loss.

One package of an unsweetened, dry mix of pectin has about:

163 calories
zero grams fat
zero milligrams cholesterol
100 milligrams sodium
45 grams carbohydrates
4 grams dietary fiber
0.2 milligrams copper (11 percent DV)
0.2 milligrams zinc (2 percent DV)
0.01 milligrams manganese (2 percent DV)

5 Pectin Benefits

1. High Source of Fiber

2. Lowers Cholesterol

3. Controls Diarrhea

Pectin increases viscosity and volume of stool; therefore, it’s commonly used for natural relief of constipation and diarrhea. A 2001 study conducted at the Centre for Health and Population Research in Bangladesh evaluated the beneficial intestinal effects of dietary fibers from green banana or pectin in children with persistent diarrhea.

... The results indicate that green banana and pectin significantly reduce amounts of stool, oral rehydration solution, intravenous fluid, frequency of vomiting and diarrheal duration — and that pectin is an important step to take for treating diarrhea.

4. Treats Diabetes

Pectin is known to slow down the activity of enzymes that break down starches and sugar. The absorption of carbohydrates and sugars is slowed down because of pectin’s fiber content; this helps prevent blood sugar spikes, which cause glucose intolerance, weight gain and diabetes.

The [study] results suggest that sustained pectin ingestion slows the gastric-emptying rate and improves glucose tolerance, making pectin a viable natural treatment for diabetes.

5. Aids Weight Loss

Pectin is a water-soluble complex carbohydrate that serves as a fat-burning food. Because the consistency is gum-like or gel-like, when you eat fresh fruits or veggies with pectin, the cells absorb it instead of the fat. Pectin also helps you feel full longer; that satiated feeling means you’ll chow down less throughout the day.

The results suggest that gelled pectin, in particular, was able to reduce appetite, increase energy and lower insulin responses.

[Study] suggests that pectin, in doses as small as five grams mixed with orange juice, increases satiety and can aid in a program to lose weight fast by limiting food intake.

Lemon Water

Pectin is partially responsible for the detoxifying and fat-burning effects of lemon water. A glass of high-pectin lemon water every day aids digestion, provides ample vitamin C, rejuvenates your skin, boosts energy and helps you lose weight!

When preparing lemon water, it’s best to add the lemon juice to room temperature or warm water — start with half a lemon’s worth of juice. Drinking cold lemon water can be a shock to your system. You get the benefits of lemon water whenever you drink it, but sipping on it in the morning kick-starts your day. Try a glass about a half hour before breakfast; the lemon juice in your belly will help your body absorb your breakfast nutrients better.

Possible Pectin Interactions

Pectin is a naturally occurring polysaccharide, and it’s regarded as safe for human consumption and has been used successfully for many years in food and beverage industries.

Pectin might decrease the amount of tetracycline antibiotics that can be absorbed by the body. For this reason, taking pectin with tetracycline antibiotics might decrease the effectiveness of tetracyclines. To avoid this interaction, take pectin two hours before or four hours after taking tetracycline antibiotics. Some tetracycline antibiotics include demeclocycline (Declomycin), minocycline (Minocin) and tetracycline (Achromycin).

Pectin is high in fiber, and fiber can decrease the absorption and decrease the effectiveness of digoxin (Lanoxin).

As a general rule, any medications taken by mouth should be taken one hour before or four hours after pectin to prevent this interaction.

Lovastatin (Mevacor) is used to help lower cholesterol, and pectin might decrease how much lovastatin the body absorbs and decrease the effectiveness of this medication. To avoid this interaction, take pectin at least one hour after lovastatin.

Doctor’s Best Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid with BioEnhanced Na-RALA, Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Vegan, Helps Maintain Blood Sugar Levels, 100 mg 60 $14.11 p 4s

Essential for energy generation by mitochondria
Helps promote the body’s antioxidant defenses
Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within the normal range
Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Vegan

Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid contains BioEnhanced** Na-RALA, the sodium salt of R-Lipoic acid (RLA). BioEnhanced** Na-RALA is in its natural and stabilized form of RLA that won’t degrade at high temperatures, and is more bioavailable and biologically active.

Lipoic acid (LA) plays an important role in glucose metabolism and energy production. LA is both fat and water soluble. Studies suggests that LA may support the body’s antioxidant defenses.* D-Biotin is an integral part of enzyme activity necessary for the breakdown and conversion of fatty acids and carbohydrates into energy.

Alpha-lipoic acid is a sulfur-containing fatty acid that performs vitamin-like roles in the body. Also known as lipoic acid (LA) or thioctic acid, it functions as a co-enzyme in the metabolism of carbohydrates, and is in this way similar to B-complex vitamins. LA is required for synthesis of acetyl CoA, a key metabolite in the cellular process that turns glucose (blood sugar) into energy. Because the body produces LA on its own, it is not classified as a true vitamin. As with other so-called 'non-essential' nutrients, however, internal LA production may not always be optimal.

Alpha-lipoic acid functions as both a water-soluble and fat-soluble antioxidant. Free radicals are normal by-products of metabolism that, while necessary at normal levels, may damage tissues over time if not properly kept in check by antioxidants. Lipoic acid’s ability to neutralize free radicals in both watery and fatty environments makes it a highly versatile antioxidant. In the body, alpha-lipoic acid can be converted (reduced) to DHLA, or dihydrolipoic acid, a potent mitochondrial antioxidant. It is not necessary to take DHLA as a supplement, as the body may readily convert LA to DHLA.

What is BioEnhanced Na-RLA Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid? - Alpha-lipoic acid comes in two forms, designated as 'R-lipoic acid' and 'S-lipoic acid.' R- and S- lipoic acid are enantiomer isomers––molecules that appear as mirror images of each other. R-lipoic acid is naturally synthesized by humans, animals, and plants. S-lipoic acid is formed during chemical synthesis of alpha-lipoic acid, producing a 'racemic' mixture of the two enantiomers that is often used in clinical studies on alpha-lipoic acid. Pharmacokinetic studies have shown that R-lipoic acid is more bioavailable than the S- form.1 For example, following single oral doses of 50 to 600 mg of racemic LA, maximum serum levels of the R- form were 40 to 50% higher than the S- lipoic form.2

Ingredients
D-Biotin 150 mcg, R-Lipoic Acid 100 mg, cellulose, rice powder, microcrystaline, magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide.

Suggested use= Take 1 cap daily with or without food.

Answer: When I found out about the two versions of ALA I did research on both and every link I went to recommended the R ALA for what I was looking for. Maybe processed differently I don't know. All I know is the R ALA has lowered my blood pressure significantly and my A1H test was down from 6.2 to 5.9 in 3 months of taking it

Question: Is this good for neuropthy?
Answer: Yes. Works for me. Alpha Lipoic Acid contains 2 forms: R Lipoic acid &S Lipoic acid. R is the part that is bioactive - the part that actually does something. So 100 mg of R-LA is equivalent to 200 mg of A-LA.

R MOLD- beware....
I feel terrible rating something from a company I love as 1 star. I read the box and bottle and nowhere does it say it should be refrigerated. This is a terrible mistake on behalf of the company. Just sitting in my cupboard with all my other supplements it has grown mold twice. The first time I thought my goodness I must have done something wrong. Nope, it grew right back. If this is visible, I can only imagine what is developing inside the sprayer or bottle and not visible. If I bought this again I would keep it in the fridge. I live in Michigan for goodness sake, not exactly a tropical climate. This is dangerous, please be cautious when using this product.

R Grew mold
I def feel the difference with this B12 spray but it developed mold around the spray nozzle where it comes out. I bleached the nozzle and it grew back. The attached photo is after I bleached it once. I will not continue to use this with mold as it is toxic. Disappointed because I use a lot of Garden of Life supplements

R Used to buy this product. Until they sold out to Nestle. I'd rather spend my money elsewhere, on a company whose values align with mine and whose products aren't harmful to health, environment, and human rights.

R Keep it in the fridge and you'll be fine. My levels are way up
Keep it in the fridge and you'll be fine. My levels are way up, it tastes good, (and I personally had no issue with mold). Just bought my second bottle.

R Good product -- Bad quality control
I'm a fan of Garden of Life products... But when I order this B-12 spray, about half of the time I get a bottle that has leaked out and soaked into the cellophane and box. Usually it doesn't bother me, but this last time there was a noticeable degradation in taste. Now, Methylcobalamin is an unstable molecule. Great care needs to be taken to ensure that the product does not come into contact with heat or light. But obviously, the current packaging is not able to achieve a barrier. I wouldn't be surprised if the B-12 molecules in many of these bottles are destroyed. GOL, great product otherwise -- but please consider looking into your quality control for this product line.

R Very disappointed! I also buy Vit C and D3 in ...
They changed from glass to plastic. Very disappointed! I also buy Vit C and D3 in spray which are still in glass. At least the ones I just bought. However, the vit B12 bottle in spray, that I've been buying for a while, was plastic this time. The plastic bottle is smaller but it is still the same amount 2 oz. There is a "6" on the bottom. Not sure what that means but If this is the code for plastics "6" is one of the most toxic kind of plastic there is. I won't be buying again unless they change back to glass.

Timing Info

Friendly User's Guide for the Timing of Nutritional Supplements

Mercola STORY AT-A-GLANCE

Fifty-two percent of American adults reported using nutritional supplements in 2012, a statistic that has remained stable since 1999. Americans spent $21 billion on nutritional supplements in 2015

While the use of multivitamins has decreased somewhat, use of vitamin D and omega-3 supplements have dramatically increased between 1999 and 2012

While dietary supplements are generally safe, when and how you take them — such as with or without food, or before or after exercise — can make a difference both in terms of safety and effectiveness

Since multivitamins contain an array of both water- and fat-soluble vitamins, it’s generally recommended you take half of your daily dose in the morning, with breakfast, and the other half with your main meal

Studies have shown that taking antioxidant supplements immediately prior to exercise has the curious effect of decreasing insulin sensitivity. It also hampers your body’s ability to defend itself against oxidative damage







Magnesium Info

Increase Your Magnesium Intake

Mercola Story at-a-glance

Video How to tell if you are deficient

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body and the second most common intracellular cation (positively charged ion) after potassium

Magnesium is required for the healthy function of most cells, especially your heart, kidneys and muscles. A lack of magnesium will impede your cellular metabolic function and deteriorate mitochondrial function

Magnesium resides at the center of the chlorophyll molecule, so if you rarely eat leafy greens, you’re likely not getting all the magnesium you need unless you’re supplementing

Some researchers insist the magnesium RDA is inadequate, warning that many suffer from subclinical magnesium deficiency that can compromise their cardiovascular health

Evaluate your signs and symptoms of magnesium insufficiency and make sure you eat magnesium-rich foods and/or take a magnesium supplement, balanced with vitamins D3, K2 and calcium. Low potassium and calcium are also common laboratory signs indicating magnesium deficiency







Omega-3 Info

Omega-3 Fat EPA Significantly Lowers Heart Disease Risk Mercola STORY AT-A-GLANCE

Omega-3 fats are essential fats your body needs for proper cell division and function of cell receptors, digestion, muscle activity, blood clotting, visual acuity, cognition, heart health and much more

A proprietary prescription formulation of fish oil called Vascepa — a highly-processed form of the omega-3 fat EPA — lowered cardiovascular health risks by 25 percent compared to placebo

Participants in the Vascepa trial received 4 grams of EPA per day — which is two to four times more EPA than typically given — for five years

A pair of parallel studies published in 2008 — both lasting four years — found fish oil supplements worked better than placebo and the cholesterol-lowering drug Crestor in patients with chronic heart failure

While a general recommendation is to take 3 to 4 grams of marine-based omega-3 per day, the only way to identify your ideal dose is to measure your omega-3 index with a blood test. For optimal health, aim for an omega-3 index of 8 percent or higher

I've been using Nutrigold's Triple Strength Omega-3 Gold Fish Oil Supplement for almost two years and couldn't be happier with the product. A few weeks ago I needed to make another purchase and saw that it was no longer available on Amazon. It led me to scour for a replacement, and I'd hoped to find something similarly high quality yet affordably priced, which Nutrigold once was. After looking around at many fish oil products I decided to try Sports Research Omega-3 Fish Oil, and I've been using the product for about two weeks now. Today I randomly decided to check to see if Nutrigold's product was available again, and it is now back in stock... for $58.99. When I first purchased their product in January 2015 I paid $37. The price went up during the following 18 months, fluctuating up and down in the low to mid $40 range. I found even the mid $40 range to be a bit expensive but I thought Nutrigold's product was worth it. Fast forward to today and the price has skied to $58.99.

Seller ships very fast. Finding a clean fish oil is exhausting and took me 3 hours of researching and reading. I did the fish oil test by cutting open a capsule, squeezing it in a styro foam cup and waiting 15 minutes. If the oil burns holes in the cup, it means it is NOT the pure triglycerides form but rather a synthetic form. This brand past the test - zero holes! In contrast, my 2 friends' Carlon's and Life Extension's fish oil burnt big holes in the cup!!! Nordic Naturals was the best, but it has become very expensive so I'm sticking with this brand.

I have done extensive research on fish oil and I keep coming back to these. Not only are they one of the highest EPA and DHA content per pill (only have to take one capsule vs others that actually require 2-4 caps to reach this dosage), but it is soy free, triglyceride form and almost the entire dose is made up of omega 3 fatty acids. Most other products are low in omega 3s...some state they have 2000mg per serving but when you look into them, you'll find of that 2000mg less than half of it is from EPA/DHA/other Omega 3s. I believe this is the best value you can get for a more natural TG fish oil at over 900mg of EPA and DHA per capsule.

Are Many Fish Oils Synthetic? The health benefits of DHA and EPA are well-established. Despite that, a number of studies have found no benefit when studying the effects of fish oil supplements, which are generally accepted as a convenient source of these important fats

Many nutritional studies fail to assess the correct parameters. The importance of looking at achieved blood levels of a nutrient rather than dosage has been clearly demonstrated by vitamin D researchers

Processing of fish oil is deeply problematic, rendering the final product into something far from the natural oils you get from the whole fish

In fish, the DHA and EPA are in the form of triglycerides, which are the most bioavailable. In most fish oil supplements, the DHA and EPA are delivered in the form of ethyl esters — a synthetic substrate with low bioavailability

Ethyl ester fish oils are not as effective for raising your omega-3 index. Your liver must also process the ethyl alcohol, which may release free radicals and cause oxidative stress — the complete opposite of what you’re trying to achieve by taking a fish oil supplement

A Classic Heart Helper Soothes Joints

We’ve already talked a bit about OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS. But they’re so critical to your joint health that they deserve a closer look. Omega-3 fatty acids have a wide range of health benefits. Many for the heart and brain. But they could be especially helpful if you have rheumatoid arthritis. In people with this condition, omega-3 fatty levels in the synovial fluid around the joints are typically quite low

In one study, people who took 2.6 g of omega-3 fatty acids per day were able to reduce their antirheumatic medications like NSAIDs and corticosteroids. Many experts think omega-3 fatty acids could provide a safe alternative to NSAIDs.

A review of several studies found that people with rheumatoid arthritis had fewer tender joints when they took omega-3s. Rheumatoid arthritis ups the risk of heart disease. So taking omega-3s is very important.

Other studies found that dosages from 3 to 5 g per day (providing 1.7–3.8g of EPA and 1.1–2.0g of DHA) helped. Most often, taking fish oil regularly leads to less morning stiffness, pain, and swelling. Fatigue and hand-grip strength also get better with omega-3s. Daily activities get easier.

In an animal study, researchers learned that the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil could also “substantially and significantly” reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis. And you don’t even have to take a supplement to feel better. An omega-3 rich diet reduced osteoarthritis by 50 percent compared to a standard diet. It slowed the breakdown of collagen and halted the loss of molecules that protect cartilage.

This is huge.

It helps prove that omega-3 fatty acids can slow the progression of osteoarthritis. Or even prevent it. The researchers said there is strong evidence that omega-3 fatty acids actually affect the biochemistry of the disease.

In some studies, adding olive oil to fish oil enhanced results. Omega-3 fatty acids also appear to boost the benefits of glucosamine.

Cod liver oil is very rich in omega-3s. Other food sources include tuna, salmon, mackerel, and herring, among other kinds of fish. A good dose for fighting inflammation is 3,000 mg total of EPA and DHA daily.

Top Benefits of Vitamin B6 Mercola

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

Even though advertisers may lead you to believe you need massive doses of B6 for energy, you can obtain sufficient amounts of this essential vitamin from whole food sources like grass fed beef liver, pastured chicken and wild salmon

Because your body cannot synthesize B6, you need to get it from your diet; the recommended intake for adults is 1.3 mg of B6 daily

Out of the Curry Pot, into Your Aching Joints

For fans of Indian food, TURMERIC is a familiar friend. This rich, orange colored spice is delicious in curries and other dishes. It also gives American mustard its yellow color.

But its powers are not confined to the kitchen. Turmeric is also a traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine. It is used to treat many issues. Including arthritis.

And modern science has only confirmed that it works. Turmeric packs a serious punch when it comes to reducing pain and inflammation. Even better, it helps with both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Here’s a breakdown of the results of several studies on both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis:

People with rheumatoid arthritis who took turmeric experienced significant improvement in morning stiffness, walking time, and joint swelling.

Their pain relief was as good as—and sometimes even better than— ibuprofen and other NSAIDs. But without the risks.

They had a 58 percent drop in overall pain and stiffness and improvement in physical function after 3 months.

People were able to reduce their use of NSAIDs by an enormous 63 percent.!

But scientists are only beginning to understand how it works. In one study on rats, turmeric extract “profoundly inhibited” inflammation and destruction of joints.

It also halts the action of cells that destroy bone tissue. This means the compound actually stops the body from attacking itself, which is exactly what happens when you have rheumatoid arthritis. This is a major breakthrough.

Additional lab studies find that curcumin, one of the active ingredients in turmeric, works in three major ways. It slows down an inflammatory chemical that causes much of the destruction to your joints. It also neutralizes an enzyme that breaks down cartilage. At the same time, it appears to help restore normal production of cartilage.

Bonus effects of turmeric

Turmeric isn’t just great at fighting arthritis. It may also prevent changes in the brain that lead to Alzheimer’s. And it could even be effective in preventing or treating colon, breast, and prostate cancer.

Turmeric is often taken in combination with bromelain. This is an enzyme derived from pineapples. Bromelain may help reduce inflammation and pain. And turmeric makes its effects stronger. Doses of bromelain range from 500 mg to 2,000 mg per day.

[there are 200 milligrams of curcumin in one teaspoon of fresh or ground turmeric (though it varies a bit depending on the source and origins)]

These are important findings for people with rheumatoid arthritis since conventional treatments suppress the entire immune system. Turmeric, on the other hand, takes action just where you need it. It leaves healthy, normal immune functions untouched.

DOSE:
A typical dose for turmeric is 400 to 600 mg three times per day. Because whole turmeric might not be easily absorbed, it is best to look for a product with a 95 percent concentration of curcuminoids. This can enhance absorption by six to seven times and provide potent relief. And don’t forget to add this savory spice to your cooking for an extra boost. You can use 0.5 to 1 g of powdered root up to a total of 3 g per day.

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

Krill oil also holds a powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin. We’ll talk more about astaxanthin and its many benefits in a moment.

Now if you’ve tried glucosamine and were disappointed by the results, there’s a good reason why. You probably weren’t pairing it with oils rich in omega-3 fatty acids. This combination has been shown to provide much better pain relief than glucosamine alone.

It’s simple. Control CRP, reduce inflammation. Taking ASTAXANTHIN can help you do that. Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring carotenoid found in certain fish and crustaceans. It is a potent antioxidant that aids the immune system. It helps reduce levels of tissue damage that lead to inflammation.

Best of all, if you have rheumatoid arthritis, early research shows that astaxanthin may help cut pain and improve your ability to perform daily activities.

In one eight-week study, a proprietary astaxanthin supplement (containing 4 mg of natural astaxanthin) lowered CRP levels more than 20 percent.xxxi And it’s not the only one. Other studies also suggest that natural astaxanthin helps relieve inflammatory conditions.

But that’s not all it does. Astaxanthin also inhibits the body’s production of another chemical: nitric oxide synthase. This plays a major role in inflammation and arthritis. Astaxanthin also keeps cartilage cells from killing themselves off. This “cell suicide” is a big cause of the cartilage loss that causes so much pain.

Ideal doses of astaxanthin range from 4 to 16 mg per day, in divided doses. It’s in krill oil, and it’s also abundant in sockeye salmon. Just four ounces of this fish may be enough to get a full daily dose. Atlantic salmon also contains astaxanthin, but at lower levels.

In a study using a combination of krill oil, hyaluronic acid, and astaxanthin, pain dropped 55 percent in less than three months. Even better—68 percent of the participants were totally pain-free by the end of the study. And for 30 percent of them, the pain was gone in just two weeks.

Boswellia Info

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

The Wise Men’s gift to Jesus along with a tasty spice that beat Celebrex at relieving pain in one study…without the deadly side effects. Frankensense... boswellia or oil

Boswellia serrata: Also known as frankincense, one of the wise men’s gifts to Jesus. But it wasn’t until roughly 2005 that researchers from India to Germany, the U.S., and more, began proving that this tree sap may hold the key to healthy joints. In fact, after just 90 days, people who added this ancient compound to their regular joint care showed a decrease in an enzyme that damages cartilage. By helping to slow the natural wear and tear on joints, it gives the body a chance to build healthy new cartilage. And the boswellia in PrimeFlex-5 is standardized to give you up to 10 times the joint-soothing power of the typical kind. And one more nutrient our research team identified as being absolutely essential for healthy joints is…








MSM Info

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

MSM: When combined with glucosamine, this potent compound can improve joint comfort a whopping 90%! But the benefits didn’t end there. People taking it reported excellentjoint function, ease of movement, and a healthy inflammatory response. MSM is considered one of the safest and oldest natural substances in the world. And so is…

Smoother Joints…Smoother Skin

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is an organic sulfur found in superfoods like broccoli—as well as each and every cell in your body. For years veterinarians successfully used MSM to treat and prevent racehorse injuries. As word got out about the miracle compound, scientists started conducting studies and found that MSM was not only safe in humans, but effective at fighting osteoarthritis.

In a 2006 study, scientists gave fifty men and women suffering with osteoarthritis of the knee 6 g of MSM or a placebo daily for 12 weeks. At the end of the study, patients who received MSM reported significant drops in pain. They also noticed an improvement in physical function and their ability to perform daily activities. So in just three short months, MSM was able to not only quell pain, but help people get back to living more normal lives.

The reason MSM works so well is because it is vital to an enormous matrix of regenerative activities in the body. It not only helps the body repair damaged tissue, but helps protect and build new,healthy tissue. It also supports your connective tissue and helps build collagen and keratin. That means that in addition to smoother joints, MSM might help deliver smoother skin and stronger hair andnails

While very safe, MSM can cause digestive discomfort for some. If you haven’t tried it before, be sure to take it with food and plenty of water. Begin with 500 mg a day for a few weeks. If you don’t feel a difference, up your dose by 500 mg every three or four weeks.

With MSM, it’s all about finding the right dose that works for you—so you should give it a few weeks at each dose to see how you're feeling. Dosages may range from 500 mg to 6,000 mg daily.







Manganese Info

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

Manganese: A mineral that helps repair and support connective tissue. It helps your body create collagen and “joint glue.” You need both for healthy cartilage and bones. And—once again—it’s the combination that makes all the difference. When you pair manganese with glucosamine, you could get even better relief. Not just by a little bit either. That’s why manganese rounds out the “top 5” powerful, joint-nourishing compounds you need for ultimate comfort, mobility, and flexibility.







Devil's Claw Info

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

Sweet Relief--Without the Risks

The Desert Herb that Could Free you from Dangerous Drugs

For centuries, the medicine men of South Africa kept a deeply guarded secret. It was an herb they used to treat a variety of ailments, but its most common use was for rheumatism and pain relief.

During the 1900s a German soldier stumbled upon it and brought the herb back to Europe. Now it is widely used throughout Europe and Canada for safe and natural arthritis relief. But it doesn't get much attention in the United States. That’s despite solid evidence that it acts as a natural COX-2 inhibitor without the risks associated with drugs like celecoxib.

They call it DEVIL’S CLAW. It’s just as effective as NSAIDs and other drugs. In fact, many people are able to cut back on their pain-relieving drugs once they start taking it. Some can even stop those drugs altogether.

A review of a dozen trials has come to this conclusion: A powder preparation of devil’s claw was effective for osteoarthritis of the spine, hip, and knee. In a study of 89 people who took 670 mg of devil’s claw three times a day for two months, severity of pain decreased significantly. The patients also increased their mobility. And there were zero side effects or safety risks.

Another study revealed the pain-relieving benefits of a daily dose of 2,460 mg of devil’s claw. Patients improved after only 10 days of treatment. In another, it was equally effective as—or superior to—use of an NSAID.

But it’s not only effective for people with osteoarthritis…

In another study, people with rheumatoid arthritis took devil’s claw. It reduced their pain. And their joint mobility improved.

To us, it’s clear: The effectiveness and safety of devil’s claw make it a top choice for relieving your joint-related pain.

The active pain-fighting chemical in devil’s claw is called harpagoside. The best effects are seen when devil’s claw products contain at least 50 mg of harpagoside per daily dose.







Borage Seed Oil [GLA] Info

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

Squelch Painful Inflammation with GLA

BORAGE SEED OIL contains the highest concentration of GAMMA-LINOLEIC ACID (GLA) found in nature. GLA is a kind of omega-6 fatty acid known to have anti-inflammatory effects. It may also support the immune system.

In a study of people with rheumatoid arthritis, participants took borage seed oil (containing 1.4 g of GLA) or a placebo daily. Researchers looked at measures including joint tenderness, joint swelling, morning stiffness, grip strength, and ability to do daily activities. The borage seed oil group improved in every single area. The placebo group showed no improvement. Some of them—not surprisingly—even got worse.

How well did the borage seed oil work? Take a look:

Number of tender joints reduced by 36 percent.
Tender joint score reduced by 45 percent.
Number of swollen joints reduced by 28 percent.
Swollen joint score reduced by 41 percent.

And it didn’t just work wonders on pain. It was also safe. Not a single patient withdrew because of adverse reactions. It’s no wonder the researchers concluded that this was a well-tolerated and effective treatment.

In a 12-week study, patients with active rheumatoid arthritis took a daily dose of borage seed oil containing 1.1 g of GLA. The researchers proved—scientifically—that it worked. The actual chemical markers of arthritis and inflammation decreased.

Similarly, 64 percent of patients in a third study showed meaningful improvement after six months on borage seed oil. They felt less joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. They also had better grip strength. In the end, the participants in the borage seed oil group were 6.5 times more likely than those in the placebo group to experience meaningful improvement.

But a quick word of caution—if you have a bleeding disorder or are taking any kind of anticoagulant or antiplatelet agent, check with your doctor first. Borage seed oil may increase the risk of bleeding. Typical doses range from 1 to 3 grams per day of GLA contained in borage seed oil. This will lessen pain, stiffness, and swelling. Borage seed oil usually contains about 20 to 26 percent GLA.







Hops Info

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

Knock-Out Pain at your Local Pub

Hops are a key ingredient in beer. That much you probably already know. But you may not know that hops have a long history as a powerful natural medicine.

They get their bitter flavor from humulon. This compound has demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity in studies. And it’s a well-known secret among Cherokees that the plant can treat various rheumatic disorders. But modern science backs them up…

In a human study, participants took 440 mg of hops extract each day for 30 days. The result? A whopping 54 percent reduction in pain scores.

In another study, patients took 1,000 mg daily of a standardized hops extract called Perluxan. It reduced pain-causing biochemicals. In fact, the effect was similar to taking two 200 mg ibuprofen tablets. Without the risk of gastrointestinal side effects. Who wouldn’t rather take hops than ibuprofen?

Early research also suggests that hops could help reduce symptoms of both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis when combined with other ingredients. One combination used ROSEMARY EXTRACT and OLEANOLIC ACID in addition to hops. And in one study on it, participants experienced a 50 percent reduction in pain. Inflammation markers also dropped.

Now you can kick back with a cold one, but for real pain relief it’s best to stick with a standardized extract. Start with 500 mg 1 to 3 times per day.







Krill Oil Info

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

Bottom of the Food Chain, Top of the Arthritis-Fighting Heap

KRILL are small crustaceans. They’re a common food for whales and other sea-dwellers. But these humble creatures at the bottom of the food chain offer more than an underwater meal. They could hold a key to arthritis relief.

In one study, patients with both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis took 300 mg per day of krill oil. After just seven days, C-reactive protein (CRP—see sidebar), a marker of inflammation, had already dropped nearly 20 percent. But by the end of the one-month trial, it dropped another 31 percent. That’s a huge decrease in just one month.

And it didn’t just quell inflammation. A week in, folks were enjoying other benefits:

Pain reduced by 29 percent.
? Stiffness reduced by 20 percent.
? Functional impairment reduced by 23 percent.

Yes, all that after just one week. Participants were also able to dramatically cut their use of “rescue medication” (ibuprofen and acetaminophen). The researchers came to the obvious conclusion. Krill oil could significantly inhibit inflammation and cut symptoms of arthritis in a short treatment period.

This makes krill oil a strong contender against risky NSAIDs and COX-2 inhibitors. Remember, those drugs have to be limited to the shortest possible duration. That’s impossible when you’re dealing with a chronic condition like arthritis. But you can take krill oil safely for as long as you need it.

It works well because krill oil is an easily absorbed, high quality omega-3 fatty acid. And the typical American diet contains far too little inflammation-fighting omega-3s.

Krill oil also contains phospholipids that help with bone and joint health. Phospholipids make up the cell membranes that let nutrients pass into your body’s cells. Without them, your cells can’t absorb omega-3 fatty acids. So the phospholipids in krill oil help your body get the most out of the omega-3s.

Plus it’s so potent, you only need a fraction of the amount as other omega-3 fatty acids. And as an added bonus, phospholipids also help lower cholesterol.

Krill oil also holds a powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin. We’ll talk more about astaxanthin and its many benefits in a moment.

Now if you’ve tried glucosamine and were disappointed by the results, there’s a good reason why. You probably weren’t pairing it with oils rich in omega-3 fatty acids. This combination has been shown to provide much better pain relief than glucosamine alone.

Krill only live one or two years, and in clean waters. That means they’re naturally pure of heavy metals and pesticides. Look for cold-processed krill oil. This preserves the nutrients. If you’re allergic to shellfish, do not take krill oil. You can get your omega-3 fatty acids from regular fish oil instead. Otherwise, try 300 mg of krill oil per day. It’ll amaze you with what it does for your pain!







Rose Hips Info

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

An Arthritis Fighter by Any Other Name…

Examine a wild rose. You’ll see small fruits developing on the blossom. They’re usually orange or red but can be purple or even black. These vitamin-C rich fruits are called rose hips. They have a long history of traditional use for a wide variety of ailments—including inflammation.

Rose hips are often taken as a fruit juice or a powder in capsules. In one study, patients with osteoarthritis took 5 g per day of rose hips for three months. After three weeks, they felt significantly less pain. Patients were even able to stop relying on “rescue medications” like NSAIDs. By the three-month mark, they felt even better. Stiffness and severity of the arthritis had dropped substantially. The researchers concluded that rose hips can alleviate symptoms of osteoarthritis and reduce the need for dangerous drugs.

In 1980, Danish farmer Erik Hansen discovered that rose hips eased his arthritis. Soon, he started a small business to manufacture his cure to help others ease their pain. That company is Hyben Vital ApS. Its products are marketed via a partner in Denmark and exported to more than 15 countries.

In another study, patients with osteoarthritis took 2.5 g of rose hips twice a day for three months. They evaluated their pain and stiffness while doing a variety of daily activities. Eighty-eight percent said they felt less pain. There were similar results for stiffness. Additionally, taking rose hips caused levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) to drop.

In yet another study, patients with osteoarthritis of the hip and knee took 2.5 g of rose hips twice a day for four months. Hip joint mobility improved significantly. Pain also decreased considerably. Imagine feeling and moving better with each new day.

You can usually find rose hip supplements in 500 to 1,000 mg capsules. We recommend you match the doses in the studies. So you’ll need to take five 500 mg capsules, twice a day.







SAMe Info

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

Boost Your Body’s Own Arthritis-Blasting Power

This next arthritis fighter is another substance that occurs naturally in your body. But giving it a boost can help you beat joint pain and inflammation.

Several studies show that Sadenosylmethionine (SAMe) is just as good as NSAIDs at relieving pain and improving joint function. And of course it does so without the dangerous side effects.

One review of research involved more than 20,000 patients. It celebrated SAMe as “the prototype of a new class of safe drugs for the treatment of osteoarthritis.” That review was back in 1987. Of course, the U.S. mainstream never pursued the thought any further. In Italy, on the other hand, it’s available with a prescription

Mainstream medicine might ignore the wonders of SAMe. But that doesn’t mean we have to. Based on multiple trials, SAMe has emerged as an effective painkiller and anti-inflammatory. And you can feel results in as little as one week

Are you getting the SAMe the label promises?

In a test of over-the-counter brands of SAMe, researchers found something disturbing. Six of the 13 brands they tested had less than half the amount of SAMe claimed on the label. So for anyone who’s taken SAMe and hasn’t seen results, this could be why. Here are the brand names you should look for. These all passed the test:

GNC SAMe, 100 mg
Natrol SAMe, 200 mg
Nature Made SAM-e, 200 mg
Puritan's Pride Inspired by Nature SAM-e, 200 mg
Source Naturals SAMe, 200 mg
The Vitamin Shoppe SAMe, 200 mg
Twinlab SAM-e, 200 mg

In a study of people with osteoarthritis of the knee, SAMe reduced pain and improved joint function as effectively as celecoxib. That’s right. It’s just as good as a drug that could ravage your heart. But SAMe doesn’t put your life in peril—it actually supports good health.

Another study pitted SAMe against sulindac, a prescription NSAID. And this time, SAMe put sulindac to shame when it came to pain relief.

In a two-year study, people with osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, and spine took a daily dose of 600 mg of SAMe for the first two weeks and 400 mg daily for the rest of the period. The SAMe improved symptoms in just a few weeks. As a bonus, it alleviated depressed feelings—a common side effect of osteoarthritis.lxi No prescription drug can tackle both arthritis and depression. That’s why we consider SAMe a vital key to vibrant health

DOSE
Typical doses for SAMe range from 600 mg to 1,200 mg for osteoarthritis, depending on severity. SAMe works closely with B-12, B-6, and folate. So make sure you’re getting enough of those B vitamins if you take SAMe. A good guideline is 800 mg of folic acid and 1,000 mg of B-12 per day.lxii Some drug interactions are possible with SAMe. So it’s important to talk to your doctor if you want to take it.

So make sure you’re getting enough of those B vitamins if you take SAMe. A good guideline is 800 mg of folic acid and 1,000 mg of B-12 per day.lxii Some drug interactions are possible with SAMe. So it’s important to talk to your doctor if you want to take it.

Aspirin’s Much Safer Ancestor

Before there was aspirin, there was WILLOW BARK. Since 500 BC, the Chinese used it to relieve pain and fever. Europeans used it to stop vomiting and to remove warts until 1828.

That’s when chemists tinkering with this natural healer extracted salicin from white willow. The result? Salicylic acid. Later, they modified salicylic acid further to create aspirin.lxiii And then willow bark was almost lost to history. Until now…

As interest grows in natural alternatives, willow bark has finally been getting the recognition it deserves. Studies have found it helpful for both back pain and osteoarthritis. And unlike aspirin, willow bark doesn’t hurt your stomach.l

So why does it work? It could be that salicin isn’t the only active ingredient in willow bark. It’s just the one that got all the credit when aspirin was created. Unlike aspirin, willow bark has all of its natural components, which may work together to relieve pain

A trial on people with osteoarthritis of the knee or hip found that 240 mg of willow bark for two weeks relieved pain. It also outperformed the placebo by 600 percent. In fact, researchers determined that it created “a statistically significant difference” in the osteoarthritis pain index of the participants. It also reduces swelling, stiffness, and inflammation. This can lead to better joint mobility. Unfortunately, willow bark doesn’t seem to do the same on rheumatoid arthritis.

You can take one or four pills three times per day as needed, for a total daily dose of 60 mg to 240 mg of salicin. Don’t take willow bark with aspirin or NSAIDs.

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

Ancient Remedy Gets Modern Respect ACUPUNCTURE is an ancient Chinese technique that focuses on essential life energy.

We’re still just starting to understand why acupuncture works. But there’s no doubt that it has gotten convincing support in scientific studies. In fact, the support is so strong that it is now widely accepted and many insurance companies cover it.

Acupuncture stimulates the nervous system. This can help release endorphins—the body’s natural painkillers.

Brain imaging shows that deep acupuncture in particular, in which the needles go in up to a half inch, actually changes the way you perceive pain. Don’t let that half-inch depth alarm you. Acupuncture is virtually painless.

Acupuncture also alerts your body to sources of pain. When you’re hurt—say you cut your finger slicing some vegetables for dinner—your body releases chemicals and signals from the injured site. That’s how it knows to send help to the source of the cut, and begin trying to heal it. The same is true for acupuncture. Inserting these thin needles into the skin is like saying to your body, "Come fix this!"

It can take eight weeks, or about 16 treatments, to see or feel any improvements. This may sound like a while, but it is actually on par with other treatments—both conventional and alternative. And unlike with conventional treatments, there are no dangerous side-effects. You just feel better, from the inside out.

Diet May Hold the Secret to a Cure

Of course, a healthy diet is essential for all of us, sick or healthy. But if you have arthritis, it could be the key to reclaiming your health. Changing your diet can take effort. It might even be frustrating. But sometimes even small changes can pay off big time. Some people might even be able to ditch their drugs entirely. Now that’s freedom. You could feel like your old self again. For real.

A pain-free diet

Here are some tips that will help ease your symptoms without a single drug:

Avoid refined foods (breads, pastas, sugar, etc.).

Eat more cold-water fish, beans, and nuts.

Work healthy oils—like olive oil, into your meals.

Ban trans-fatty acids from your kitchen.

Avoid too much caffeine.

Drink plenty of water (at least six to eight glasses a day).

Your Fridge is the Key to Sweet Relief

A poor diet will leave you in a constant state of internal inflammation. But if you get plenty of fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants you can keep inflammation at bay. If you have arthritis, this is critical. Also, people with rheumatoid arthritis have a higher risk for heart disease and diabetes. So it’s vital that you lower your risk by eating healthy and getting exercise.







Staying Active... Info

“Farmer Hansen’s cure.” transcript from V.

Getting Active Stops Pain and Stiffness

When you’re struggling with arthritis, staying active can be hard. It might even sound like pure torture. But it’s really important. Especially if you have rheumatoid arthritis.

Regular exercise will help…

Maintain your proper weight (this will take pressure off your joints).

? Prevent heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis.

? Reduce your pain.

? Improve your mood.

Swimming and EXERCISING IN WARM WATER can be really soothing if you have rheumatoid arthritis. Walking has been shown to significantly cut knee and hip pain in arthritis sufferers.

STRETCHING can also be helpful. It can help you get back your range of motion. If stretching hurts, try warming up first. Use a hot compress for five to 10 minutes. You’ll find it will be much easier to get your joints moving and stretching.

Just really listen to your body. It’s normal to be sore after a workout. But if you feel sharp pain, stop right away. Also, be sure to warm up before you begin. And finish by cooling down with a good stretch.

Sesame Oil

Open Sesame! Health Benefits GMI 10-20-18 By: Sayer Ji, Founder

Here are just 10 evidence-based medicinal properties of this food-medicine:

Diabetes: A study published in 2011 in the Clinical Journal of Nutrition showed that sesame oil improved the effectiveness of the oral antidiabetic drug glibenclamide in type 2 diabetic patients. [1] Another study published in 2006 in the Journal of Medicinal Foods showed that the substitution of sesame seed oil as the sole edible oil lowers blood pressure and glucose in hypertensive diabetics. [2]

High Blood Pressure: A study published in 2006 in the Yale Journal of Biological Medicine showed that sesame seed oil has a beneficial effect in hypertensive patients on either diuretics or beta-blockers. Substitution of all dietary oils with sesame oil brought down systolic and dystolic blood pressure to normal, in addition to decreasing lipid peroxidation (bodily rancidity) and antioxidant status. [3] One of the compounds identified behind sesame seed's antihypertensive effects are peptides that act as angiotensin I-converting enzyme inhibitors.[4]

Gingivitis/Dental Plaque: Sesame seed oil has been used for oral health for thousands of years in the traditional Indian medical tradition known as Ayurveda in a process known as "oil pulling." It involves swishing sesame seed oil in the mouth for prolonged durations and has been said to prevent teeth decay, halitosis, bleeding gums, dry throat, and for strengthening the teeth, gums and jaw. Clinical research now confirms that it compares favorably to chemical mouthwash (chlorhexidine) in improving plaque-induced gingivitis,[5] and that it is capable of reducing Streptococcus mutans growth associated with oral plaque formation. [6]

365 Everyday Value, Organic Sesame Seed Oil, 8.4 fl oz unavailable

365 Everyday Value, Organic Sesame Seed Oil, 8.4 Fluid Ounce $4.29 p 4's reserved for Prime members only

Infant Health/Massage Oil: A study published in the Indian Journal of Medical Research in 2000 showed that massaging infants with sesame oil improved both their growth and post-massage sleep, in comparison to control oils such as mineral oil.[7]

Multiple Sclerosis (MS): In the animal model of MS, also known as experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, sesame seed oil protects mice from developing the disease by reducing IFN-gamma secretion, a key factor in initiating AUTOIMMUNE INFLAMMATION and injury in the nervous system.[8]

Antibiotic-Induced Kidney Damage: Sesame seed oil protects against gentamicin-induced kidney damage in rats by reducing oxidative damage caused by the antibiotic.[10]

Atherosclerosis: Sesame seed oil prevents the formation of atherosclerotic lesions in mice fed an atherogenic diet.[11] The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory lignan found within sesame seeds known as sesamol has been identified to be partially responsible for its anti-atherogenic properties. In fact, sesamol has been shown to possess over two dozen beneficial pharmacologically active properties, many of which may contribute to improving cardiovascular health.

Depression: The sesame lignin sesamol was shown to exert an antidepressant-like effect in behavioral despair in chronically stressed mice, specifically by modulating oxidative-nitrosative stress and inflammation.[12]

Radiation-Induced DNA Damage: Sesamol has been shown to protect against gamma radiation-induced DNA damage, likely through its antioxidant properties. [13] ... When compared to another powerful antioxidant, melatonin, it was found 20 times more effective as a free radical scavenger.[15]

Cancer: Sesame contains a fat-soluble lignin with phytoestrogenic properties known as sesamin, and which has been studied for inhibiting the proliferation of a wide range of cancer cells

Sesame deserves to be recognized, along with garlic, honey, turmeric and a select few other substances, as an easily accessible and affordable food-medicine that, if consumed regularly, could quite possibly save lives.


Fenugreek

Psst...This Blood-Sugar-Balancing Ingredient Might Also Soothe Bloating & Painful Periods mbg 10-20-18

Ever popped a turmeric supplement or maybe mixed some ashwagandha powder into your morning smoothie? Then you know the powerful healing role that herbs and spices can play in our lives. Whether it's fighting inflammation or easing stress and anxiety, these nutrient-packed remedies have offered relief to countless people for thousands of years—and now, studies are backing up their therapeutic properties.

Another potent oldie but goodie that fits the bill is FENUGREEK. "Fenugreek is an herb that's been used for thousands of years to treat a variety of conditions ranging from skin issues to pain, digestive ailments, and more," says Jessica Cording, M.S., R.D., CDN, registered dietitian and health coach. "You'll often see it in seed or powder form."

These days, modern science is finding that fenugreek—a longtime staple in Indian, Egyptian, and Middle Eastern cooking as well as ayurvedic and Chinese medicine—may actually live up to many of its ancient health claims.

Here's an inside look at the herb's various health benefits, how to use it in your cooking, and what to look for in a quality fenugreek supplement.

OK, so what is fenugreek?

Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum), also known as methi and shambalileh, is a plant that's part of the Fabaceae (or pea) family. Native to Asia and the Mediterranean, the plant typically reaches about 2 to 3 feet tall and consists of green spear-shaped leaves and small white flowers with pods containing small, aromatic yellowish-brown seeds.

Both fenugreek leaves and seeds are edible and can be used in cooking too--their flavor is strong, a bit sweet, and a little bitter (sort of reminiscent of burnt sugar). For thousands of years, they've been ground up and incorporated into curries, chutneys, tea blends, and spice rubs. Today, they're even used to flavor imitation maple syrup.

Various cultures throughout history have also used fenugreek medicinally. In ayurvedic medicine, it's been praised as an aphrodisiac and digestive soother. Meanwhile, in Egypt, fenugreek seeds were used to promote milk production in lactating women and relieve menstrual cramps. Ground fenugreek has also been taken internally to induce childbirth and used externally as a poultice for soothing skin irritation and infections.

As you can see, there are about a million and one ways to use the plant medicine—but what makes it so effective?

Let's unpack the health benefits of fenugreek.

Fenugreek is jam-packed with nutrients. One tablespoon of the seeds contains 3 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, 20 percent of your daily value of iron, and 5 percent of your daily value of magnesium—all for just 36 calories. Plus, fenugreek packs a variety of health-promoting phytochemicals. "Commonly used for gastrointestinal disorders, diabetes, and dysmenorrhea, the seed of fenugreek contains flavonoids, alkaloids, coumarins, and saponins," says Ilene Ruhoy, M.D., Ph.D., an integrative neurologist. "It's these constituents that seem to offer powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-platelet activity, among other benefits."

And while there isn't enough evidence to officially recommend fenugreek to treat any specific health condition (more comprehensive clinical trials are needed), preliminary research does suggest this seed packs a serious health punch, thanks to its impressive nutritional profile. Here are a few ways it may help you:

1. It balances blood sugar and lowers cholesterol.

A pre-meal swig of apple cider vinegar isn't the only thing that will help keep blood sugar levels in check. Fenugreek seems to slow the absorption of sugars in the stomach and stimulate insulin, both of which help lower blood sugar in people with (or at risk for) type 2 diabetes. "Fenugreek is high in fiber and protein, so some of its benefits, like blood sugar management and appetite control, are thought to come from that," says Cording.

Fenugreek's gel-like soluble fiber is also thought to combine with bile acid and lower triglycerides and LDL cholesterol levels. In a recent study, 140 subjects with prediabetes were given either a placebo or 5 grams of fenugreek seed powder twice a day before meals over the course of three years. The fenugreek group experienced a significant reduction in fasting blood glucose levels and post-meal blood glucose levels and a drop in LDL "bad" cholesterol. But most impressively, at the conclusion of the study, the placebo group had a 4.2 times greater chance of developing diabetes compared to the people taking fenugreek.

Fenugreek powder may also help prevent blood sugar spikes when incorporated into baked goods, with one small study finding that bread containing 5 percent fenugreek powder was more effective at reducing insulin resistance among people with diabetes than regular wheat bread. Additional research shows that drinking fenugreek tea (made by mixing fenugreek seed powder in hot water) may be even more effective at balancing blood sugar and lowering cholesterol than consuming the seeds incorporated into food.

2. It provides relief from painful periods.

Dysmenorrhea (the physical pain and cramping associated with periods) has plagued women since the beginning of time. Various cultures, like the ancient Egyptians, looked to natural remedies like fenugreek and even cannabis to alleviate symptoms. Now, researchers suspect that the anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of fenugreek seeds may be one big reason they've stood the test of time as a natural remedy.

In one study, women were either given a placebo or 900 milligrams of fenugreek seed powder three times a day for the first three days of their period for two consecutive menstrual cycles. While the severity of pain was reduced in both groups, the duration of pain decreased significantly in the second cycle of the fenugreek group only. Symptoms of fatigue, headaches, nausea, vomiting, and lack of energy also decreased with fenugreek, and no side effects were reported. (Here's how to tell if your period is signaling a hormonal imbalance.)

3. It can soothe bloating, constipation, and GI distress.

Long used as a digestive aid in ayurvedic medicine, fenugreek works to keep our guts happy and bowels moving in a few different ways. The most obvious way fenugreek combats constipation is with its high content of soluble fiber (3 grams per tablespoon). Soluble fiber absorbs water and adds bulk to stools, helping things move along smoothly. Since constipation often causes bloating and cramping, fenugreek may help alleviate those symptoms as well. (Want more ways to beat bloat? Try these eight science-backed tips.)

Fenugreek may also have demulcent properties, relieving irritation of the mucus membranes in the digestive tract by forming a protective film or coating of mucus over them. "Some people find that fenugreek helps with acid reflux," says Amy Shah, M.D., an immunologist and mindbodygreen Collective member. "The exact mechanisms are still a question, but it may pull lubrication into the GI tract so that both acid reflux and other stomach ailments get better." These properties may also help to prevent or heal a leaky gut.

For similar reasons, fenugreek might have anti-ulcer potential. One study on animals found that a gel solution derived from fenugreek seeds had comparable anti-ulcer effects to omeprazole, a proton-pump inhibitor found in medications like Prilosec. The fenugreek solution protected the mucus membrane layer of the stomach from damage and reduced the secretion of stomach acid—a reaction that could be promising for those with recurring heartburn and indigestion.

4. It increases breast milk production.

5. It provides relief for inflammatory skin conditions.

6. It increases sex drive for men and women.

A few other potential health benefits of fenugreek.

Some very preliminary studies have also looked at fenugreek's potential to aid in weight loss, improve exercise performance, and alleviate arthritis symptoms. But these claims aren't yet well-established by research, nor do they have as much anecdotal evidence behind them as some of the benefits above.

What you should look for in a fenugreek supplement.

Fenugreek is available in a few different forms: as whole seeds, ground powder, supplement capsules, and in teas. "For medicinal purposes, capsule formulations are the best form," says Ruhoy. That's because most brands use a standardized 500 milligrams of fractionated tempered fenugreek seeds, which is the form typically used in most studies. Plus, taking a capsule makes it easier to study any benefits you may experience, since you can keep track of how many you take much more easily than remembering how much fenugreek you sprinkled into a recipe.

There's no single recommended or ideal dose for fenugreek, since it may vary depending on the condition you're treating. But with supplements, it's likely a good idea to start with 500 milligrams per day and work your way up to the recommended dose on the label (usually 1,000 milligrams) as long as you don't experience any adverse side effects.

Since the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) doesn't regulate dietary supplements, it's smart to seek out a fenugreek supplement that's been tested by a credible third-party group like NSF, UL, or USP. These certifications verify that a supplement contains what the label says it contains and that it isn't contaminated with dangerous substances.

A few ways to use fenugreek seeds and powder.

If you don't go the supplement route, cooking with fenugreek seeds and seed powder is a simple, inexpensive way to boost your overall health and infuse some extra flavor into your meals. You can usually find them at specialty markets, and they're widely available online.

Be sure to store whole and ground fenugreek in an airtight container in a cool, dry, and dark place like a pantry. Typically, this will keep them fresh for up to six months.

Here are a few recipes to start experimenting with:

Take a straight spoonful: "Overnight-soaked fenugreek seeds are my preference," says Shah. Just take a spoonful in the morning to set yourself up for optimal digestion and balanced blood sugar.

Make a soothing tea: Another simple fenugreek recipe that Shah endorses: "Mix a spoonful of the powder into warm water and drink it." Or, to up the complexity a bit, you can boil whole fenugreek seeds with a couple of cardamom pods and a chamomile tea bag for 20 minutes. Serve with honey for a little extra sweetness and to complement fenugreek's naturally maple-y taste.

Make a sprouted salad topper: You can actually sprout whole fenugreek seeds, just as you would other seeds and beans, says Shah. Simply leave them overnight in water and then change the water in the morning, repeat for 2 to 3 days until you see green sprouts, then toss them into a salad or a grain dish for added flavor and texture. Use as a sweet or savory flavor booster: "Experiment with using fenugreek seeds and powder in spice blends, grain dishes, and other recipes," says Cording. Ground fenugreek seeds are often used in curries and can also be sprinkled into a variety of sauces, onto cooked greens or other vegetables, and into plain yogurt. For something savory and warm, try this inflammation-taming soup featuring fenugreek and turmeric. Or if you're craving something sweet, without the blood sugar spike, try out this fenugreek rice pudding.

Are there any side effects I should watch out for?

Fenugreek appears to be relatively safe in humans, and the most commonly reported side effects are minor, including gastrointestinal symptoms like diarrhea and dizziness if taken in high amounts, says Ruhoy. Keep in mind, though, that all children should also avoid fenugreek supplements, as there's not enough evidence to establish that it's safe for them. Some evidence suggests fenugreek may worsen asthma symptoms as well. Consuming it as a flavor-boosting ingredient in foods, however, is likely safe.

If you're on diabetes, blood-thinning, or anti-platelet medication, you should only use fenugreek under the care of a physician. Fenugreek may amplify the effects of these medications, potentially dropping your blood sugar levels too low or impairing your blood's ability to clot.

R Great for Hilbe
[Hilbe is a Yemenite paste made of fenugreek powder, spiced with a kick of z'hug. It is used in many modern Israeli dishes, and is a favorite at the Shabbat table alongside Yemenite soup and kubaneh bread. ... Soak the fenugreek powder in water for at elast 3 hours - joyofkosher.com]
This seed is amazing. We use it to make Hilbe. I know that a lot of people take it for health benefits (especially to boost milk supply for nursing mothers) but most people don't know how to make a nice tasting dip with this. The Hilbe has a unique taste and unique properties. You can eat hot or bitter things with it and it will always neutralize the taste of whatever you eat with it. It is a popular Yemenite Jewish dish served with anything from fish to soup to meat to bread and makes a great dip.

You can make a Google search for Hilbe recipes. The basic idea is;

1 Tablespoon of these seeds
1.5 cup of water plus 1 cup of water for soaking the seeds
1 bunch of fresh cilantro
fresh garlic and salt to taste

Soak the seeds in a cup of water overnight.
Empty the water leaving just the soaked seeds (the seeds expand from the water)
Rinse the seeds under running water and drain.
Add a half a cup of fresh water and blend the soaked seeds and the cilantro with a blender. (the water is so the blender should not have to work to hard. Add just enough for the blender to blend the seeds well).

Refrigerate for 3 hours.

Mix with a mixer while gradually adding the rest of the water. The mixture should get a frothy and gel like texture.
Add the crushed garlic and salt.

Now it is ready to serve.
You can refrigerate for 2 days. If you want to keep it for longer; you can either re-mix with a mixer to make it gel up again, or you can freeze the blended mixture before mixing with a mixer and mix when you are ready to serve it within a day or two.

We made a larger recipe and froze serving size parts in plastic cups.
I hope you will enjoy this recipe. I added a photo that I found on the internet of the final results. It is not so much work and worth the effort.

Coming Clean: A Diary of my Journey thru OptiCleanse detox

going backwards

--The Finish Line

The results are in! I lost 7.5 pounds and decreased my BMI by 2 points. My doctor was pleased with my BIA, though I do not completely understand it.

I thought that I would be released to follow a weight loss diet of my choice, but was a little dismayed when my doctor instructed me to stay on the diet. I am happy, however, with the modifications that she allowed. I am allowed to eat all fruits, vegetables, fish and shellfish, and replace one meal a day with a shake. It’s manageable with the occasional cheat day!

--Hurricane Diet

I am stocked up with shake mix, fresh veggies, rice crackers & hummus, canned beans and chicken, eggs and almonds. Of course, we do have fresh chicken to grill. Yes I will have my ground turkey patty (no bun) when my husband eats grilled hamburgers. I have come too far to fail now. And I have lost 5 pounds of fat.

--I Cheated Today

I couldn’t resist ordering a mini-sized chocolate shake from Sonic. I would not have been there if not for my husband’s cravings. So I had about 1/3 of it and found that it didn’t really interest me anymore and was too sweet. I became slightly nauseated until I flushed it down with water. My food choices have changed drastically and cheating validated that.

I spent almost 2 hours at Whole Foods today researching gluten-free foods and found a few items that I hope to be palatable. I’m boiling pasta now to mix with a gluten-free “cheese” sauce. Here’s hoping . . .

--Breaking the Fast

This 3-day fast has been one of my greatest challenges and accomplishments. I will be breaking my fast 2-3 hours after my breakfast shake. I have not experienced any fatigue nor any bursts of energy. I have not been hungry, but almost drooled like my bulldog when I smelled food. My husband was happy to take a break from my diet and feasted on pizza, Jack in the Box and Burger King. Tomorrow the menu will change back to grilled chicken breast and veggies.

Though not inclusive, some of the signs and symptoms below are indicators of toxicity. Consider detox before your body enters a state of disease.

*Arthritis or joint pain
*Bad breath
*Chronic respiratory or sinus problems
*Food allergies
*Constipation, diarrhea or gas
*Insomnia and fatigue
*Frequent headaches
*Depression or anxiety
*Psoriasis
*Poor digestion or excess acid
*Sudden memory lapses
*Sensitivity to odors

--Nutritional Overload

Almost one day down of only shakes for meals, and it hasn’t been difficult. I have no doubt that I will be well nourished on this low calorie, high protein supplement.

The Supplemental Facts (Daily Intake)

1260 Calories
156 gm Protein (RDA for women 48 grams)
22,500 IU Vitamin A
1750 mg Vitamin C
4000 IU Vitamin D3
1200 mg Calcium

840 mg Magnesium
60 mg Zinc
600 mcg Selenium
860 mcg Chromium
1980 mg Potassium
750 mcg Vanadium
1200 mg fish oils

--Shakin It Up

OptiCleanse GHI shakes are not just another meal replacement product. Each serving contains 26 grams of protein from a pea/rice protein blend. The following is an overview of some of the pharmaceutical grade components of the product.

L-Glutamine: Among the 20 amino acids, glutamine is responsible for removing excess ammonia from the body, strengthening the immune system, promoting wound healing and reducing inflammation. It is widely known that stress elevates cortisone levels, and elevated cortisone depletes glutamine. Glutamine is essential for tissue repair. (University of Maryland Medical System)

Quercetin: a powerful antioxidant, anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory agent that reduces the risk of arterial plaque and lowers cholesterol and blood pressure.

Aminogen: facilitates protein absorption.

Preventium: lowers the risk of breast and prostate cancer. (University of Nebraska Medical Center)

Ellagic Acid: a phytochemical that functions as an antioxidant and has anti-cancer properties. **Ellagic acid is a compound found in many of my favorite foods that, ironically, I cannot eat on this diet including: raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, walnuts, pecans and pomegranates.

Watercress: Mother Nature’s version of a multi-vitamin.

N-Acetyl Cysteine: detoxifies the liver and protects against environmental pollutants. Known as the hang-over remedy.

Curcumin (turmeric): promotes cytokine balance, has anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties, fights bacteria, and reduces bad cholesterol and inflammation.

AND it tastes good!

--Trying Not To Wish My Life Away

Not seriously! I usually wish that time would stand still, but find myself wishing that this week would be over quickly. I’m trying to slow my mind down, enjoy each moment of this experience, and learn from it. I embrace the healthy changes that my body will undergo. I’m excited that I will never be the same after this experience.

Jimmy cooked spaghetti and meat sauce for his dinner last night, and asked me exactly what I could not have. I thought for a minute and replied: beef, tomatoes and pasta . . . not to mention garlic bread. Even though these foods if properly chosen are healthy they are not allowed on my diet, and certainly eliminate spaghetti.

On Tuesday, I will begin having 4 shakes a day and only 2 snacks. No more meals until next Monday. Of course, I can eat anything on the approved list for the snacks through Thursday. According to my doctor, I shouldn’t be hungry, but have been for 2 days now. Unexpected PMS, however, may be the cause. I carefully planned this diet for 2 months, and it’s laughable that my body decided to defy me.

The Olympics have truly been an inspiration to me. Those beautiful bodies are the result of dedication to an extreme healthy lifestyle accomplished by discipline, determination and perseverance. My attitude this week will be “focus, discipline, determination, perseverance, and good ole fashion southern-style stubbornness.” Bless my heart!

--Tantalizing Sights and Smells

I thought grocery shopping was the hardest task since Monday . . . until I drove by a Starbucks today.

I will complete Step 2 or my program today and begin Step 3 tomorrow. I began with one shake for breakfast followed by 5 small meals, then progressed to 2 shakes per day. Tomorrow I will begin having 3 shakes per day and so on until next weekend (Friday – Sunday) I will have only shakes. I anticipate that to be the most difficult Step, and just might stay in bed all weekend. Or maybe I could send Jimmy to stay at someone’s house so that I don’t have to see or smell food.

Digestion is a significant energy drain. That explains why children and animals reduce their food intake or refuse food immediately before and during an illness. It is only during a period of fasting that the body is able to effectively achieve detoxification and regeneration.

Following the salmon, another favorite new meal this week was ground turkey patties over rice with veggies. Also I’m growing rather fond of Rice Crispies with almond milk and I’ve eaten a lot of applesauce. The chicken breast that I baked was dry, tough and tasteless. I’m going to let Jimmy give it a try on the grill tomorrow. Here’s hoping for tasty chicken.

--Meet Dr. Emma Kruger

Dr. Emma Kruger holds a fellowship in metabolic anti-aging medicine and is a bioidentical hormone specialist.

http://www.maacla.com/AboutUs.html

--28 Days

The purpose of my blog is to affirm myself and inform and encourage others through a wholistic detox program. My doctor, Dr. Emma Kruger, recommended the Xymogen OptiCleanse GHI program. In preparation for this diet program, I was disappointed to have found only 2 blogs with only a couple of entries.

I am quickly approaching 40 and I need to lose 50 pounds that I’ve been holding onto for 13 years. I have high cholesterol (familial) and have been battling with endocrine disorders (thyroid and female hormones) for 10 years. I have suffered with a mood disorder for most of my life. As an anatomy and physiology instructor and having studied these disorders for 10+ years, I believe them to be interrelated. Until recently, my only course of action has been swallowing pills.

A client introduced me to Dr. Kruger last year who ordered a series of tests to determine that, among other issues, my body is estrogen dominant and my liver is not functioning at optimal levels due to inflammation. Due to the very expensive testing performed last year, I was unable to afford the detox program and the (bioidentical) replacement hormones. We decided to try hormone therapy alone and then reevaluate. For almost a year, I was on a great course and even lost a few pounds. Then a few months ago, I began a downward spiral. Dr. Kruger decided that it was now necessary to detox before changing my hormone dosage.

So this morning I began my 28 Day Cleanse with the purpose of detoxifying my gastrointestinal tract and liver and reducing widespread inflammation. The program is an elimination diet that eliminates foods that could likely cause common food sensitivities. Among the restricted foods are dairy products, gluten, starches and sugars, caffeine, refined oils, and butter spreads and tasty cream based sauces. Due to their acidic properties some fruits (citrus), vegetables, juices, seasonings and all condiments are also eliminated. Selecting and preparing food will definitely be a challenge. After 28 days, I will begin reintroducing these foods back into my diet to determine if I should avoid them permanently.

I find it difficult to understand why some foods are restricted such as: tilapia, tuna, shrimp, citrus fruits/juices, vinegar. Well I haven’t spent my career doing the research so I guess I’ll just have to deal with it for 28 days.

Today I tried hummus on a plain rice cake and decided that I liked it good enough. I could happily eat hummus with a spoon. The menu for supper is grilled salmon basted in olive oil and approved herbs and spices, baked sweet potatoes and broccoli. Not too bad.

I then began drinking 1 sixteen-ounce glass of distilled water each hour until bedtime, that was early. By the time Friday rolls around, I am usually exhausted from a extended, hard week at work, thus going to bed early at nine o’clock wasn’t a issue for me. On Saturday mornings, I normally sleep in to regarding 7:30 or 8:00 o’clock. I started drinking the one sixteen-ounce glass of water the minute I got up plus continued for 4 hours till it was noon, at which time I ate a light lunch.

Preventium = potassium d-glucarate

Human beings are constantly bombarded by toxins from smog, plasticizers, radiation, and other pollutants. In excess, these toxins can build up in the body and remain present causing negative symptoms. Supplementing with Glucarate significantly boosts the body’s ability to eliminate harmful toxins, pollutants, and chemicals while improving androgen/estrogen balance. This is done by the working with the body’s phase II liver detoxification pathway, called Glucuronidation. In doing so, Glucarate converts to glucaric acid which binds to toxins at the cellular level making them water soluble so they can be easily eliminated by the body.

Benefits of D-Glucarate

Eliminates Harmful Toxins
• Water Soluble
• Clear in Solution
• Neutral Taste Profile
Non-GMO / GRAS
• USP Grade
• FCC Grade
• Odor Free
