Did you know.....

..... that blue green algae is a wonderful source of nutrients?

..... that taking higher doses of vitamin C can help heal gum disease (gingivitis) as much as brushing and flossing? In fact, a vitamin C deficiency can lead to gingivitis because vitamin C is responsible for the formation and preservation of collagen. Even more effective is vitamin C with bioflavonoids.

..... vitamin C also increases the excretion of uric acid to prevent episodes of gout. (A low purine diet is also recommended.)

..... 1 gram of Vitamin C, taken daily, helps to increase fertility in men who have problems with sperm agglutination. (Ref: World Rev Nutr Diet 1990;62:1�26 [review])

We recommend Poten-C from DaVinci Labs. You may click here to order from them directly.

..... if you are using fat-free dressing on your salad, you are jeopardizing the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins contained in the salad's ingredients? (Vitamins A, D, E, & K are examples of fat-soluble vitamins.)

.....the original FDA food pyramid matched the approach used for fattening up beef cattle. (Surprise!) In addition, beef cattle are often advertised as "grain fed", as if that is a plus. Grain fed beef contains less CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), the substance that helps us stay slim .

Beef is a fantastic source of nutrition (no single vegetable can provide a complete protein source & none can provide a full range of B vitamins). Make sure you consume the right type of beef. Cattle should be raised on farms that allow them to graze and forage (i.e., just say "no" to grain-fed beef). Their pastures should be on organic soil and the cattle must not be treated with antibiotics or hormones.

..... coconut oil & palm oil (the right kinds) are actually GOOD for you .....

..... a new study shows efficacy of chiropractic for migraine sufferers:
Seventy-two per cent of migraine sufferers in a clinical trial experienced either 'substantial' or 'noticeable' improvement after a period of chiropractic treatment, defying historical skepticism of chiropractics by some medical practitioners.

The randomised clinical trial was undertaken by Dr Peter Tuchin, a chiropractor for the past 20 years, as part of his recently-completed PhD thesis at Macquarie University."
