Give Your Immune System A Boost

Dear Bob,

I have recently decided to start taking Vitamin D3 in the hopes of strengthening my immune system. I seem to get sick at least twice per year(I am right now), and I’m tired of relying on antibiotics to cure me. I was wondering how much D3 you would recommend I take per day (I bought 5000 UI capsules). I am 16 years old. I’m about 5 feet 11 inches tall, and I weigh roughly 145 pounds. Also, I was wondering if there is anything else you would recommend I take in order to improve my immune system and overall health.

Sincerely,

Aaron M

The Good Salt

You may have heard your doctor tell you about the dangers of too much salt in your diet. He is talking about sodium chloride — a chemical and not true salt.

Unrefined natural sea salt is different from common table salt, which is chemically treated and stripped of minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.

Tart Cherries Shown To Provide Cardiovascular Benefits, Reduce Risk Of Diabetes And Stroke

If you are at risk for or are currently suffering from heart disease or type 2 diabetes, you should consider adding tart cherries to your diet.

For years, doctors have prescribed a class of drugs called PPAR agonists to patients with metabolic syndrome, a collection of risk factors linked to heart disease and type 2 diabetes. PPAR agonists are designed to regulate fat and glucose. But long-term use of these drugs increases the risk of stroke.

Bills Requiring GMO Labels Introduced In Both Chambers Of Congress

A continuing movement against genetically modified food by consumer advocacy, environmental and business groups gained some legislative steam this week with bills introduced in both chambers of Congress that would require manufacturers to clearly label genetically altered food.

Bad Diets And School Shootings

Celebrity vegan trainer John Pierre, who visited Capitol Hill Monday to tout the benefits of a plant-based diet, told Congressional staffers that school shootings could be a result of poor nutrition. “The average child is drinking over 50 gallons of soda pop a year… and every time you eat or you drink sugar it destroys […]

GMO Corn: Dead, Deadly

Monsanto maintains that its genetically modified (GMO) corn is nutritionally equivalent to non-GMO corn. But a 2012 report, titled “2012 Nutritional Analysis: Comparison of GMO Corn versus Non-GMO Corn,” tells a different story.

A copy of the report was sent to Moms Across America by the Canadian non-GMO seed company De Dell Seed Company. In fact, it turns out that GMO corn is essentially nutritionally dead and laced with toxins in amounts that exceed those the Environmental Protection Agency deems “safe.”

Another Study Links Low Vitamin D To Cardiovascular Disease

John Cannell, M.D., has compiled information on two studies that seem to show that Vitamin D is the missing link in patients with cardiovascular disease.

Writing in his Vitamin D Council blog, Cannell looked at a study done by researchers at Hull York Medical School in England on two of the most commonly prescribed statin drugs: Lipitor (atorvastatin) and Zocor (simvastatin). Both lower cholesterol equally and both are used to prevent cardiovascular disease.

Cinnamon Good For Defense, Prevents Offense

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago have found that cinnamic aldehyde, which is obtained from cinnamon oil, actually decreases the bacteria in your mouth that are the culprits behind bad breath and gum problems. Since there are more than 90 million people who are plagued with chronic bad breath (or halitosis), cinnamon, such as in gum, can be a lifesaver.

Traditional Kimchi Is Great Health Food

The super-spicy Korean food/condiment kimchi is one of the world’s most healthful foods.

Packed with vitamins A, B and C, and high in fiber, Kimchi has been a part of Korean culture for thousands of years. Its first recorded appearance came in the 7th century. In Korea, Kimchi is consumed at an annual rate of about 40 pounds per person.
