Dec. 11, 2012  

This newsletter is the result of another "supplement bashing" article published in the September 2012 issue of Consumer Reports magazine. However, I must admit that I am getting rather tired of wasting newsletter time trying to refute articles written by uninformed journalists that have no clue as to the health value of a well supplemented diet.  


So, in this newsletter, I have published articles from several different sources about the benefit of specific supplements that can help with various health conditions. Perhaps one of the articles will help you ameliorate a problem you are having.


Also - please take note that I will be closed from Dec 17th thru Dec 26th. If you need anything right away, please get the order in to me on or before Saturday 12/15. Orders received after that will not be shipped until after Christmas.


Enjoy! ........... Jim  
Vitamin & Mineral Deficiency Diseases
A summary of some common diseases typically can be caused by vitamin or mineral deficiencies.

Low CoQ10 and B-Vitamin levels linked to Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
Increased blood levels of coenzyme Q10 and vitamin B6 are associated with a reduced risk of coronary artery disease (CAD), says new data published in Nutrition Research.

Zinc Deficiency Mechanism Linked to Aging, Multiple DiseasesB

Zinc deficiency can develop with age, leading to a decline of the immune system and increased inflammation associated with many health problems, including cancer, heart disease, autoimmune disease and diabetes.


Is D deficiency a risk factor for peripheral artery disease?

Peripheral Artery Ddisease (PAD) is associated with cardiovascular disease, all-cause mortality, coronary heart disease, and stoke, independent of traditional risk factors. PAD is often diagnosed with an ultrasound of an artery in your ankle. Dr Gouveri and colleagues from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki  reviewed the evidence that vitamin D deficiency is yet another risk factor for PAD.



Magnesium Intake Linked to Reduced Colon Cancer Risk
Through data analyses, the researchers found that individuals with the highest magnesium intake had an 11 percent reduced risk of colorectal cancer when compared to those with the lowest. Furthermore, high magnesium intake was associated with a 19 percent reduced risk and six percent reduced risk for colon cancer and rectal cancer, respectively.

Vitamin D and Cardiovascular Disease

Substantial evidence suggests that a large portion of the population have suboptimal levels of vitamin D, which may adversely affect the cardiovascular (CV) system, including increasing levels of parathyroid hormone, activating the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, and increasing insulin resistance, thus leading to hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy, metabolic syndrome/diabetes mellitus, systemic inflammation, and increased risk of atherosclerosis and CV disease events.


B vitamins bolster immune response to fight infection and chronic disease .
A vibrant immune response is important to fight viral infections and the common cold, but is also essential to protect against the development and progression of chronic illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and dementia.  

 Multivitamin-Cancer Study Details Tell Different Story
Contradicting recent studies that showed multivitamin use had little effect upon chronic disease, Harvard researchers have found that multivitamin use over a long period reduces the incidence of many cancers along with mortality.

 Texas Medical Board's Lawsuit against CAM Cancer Pioneer Dismissed!  

Hey Folks! We finally won one!. The Texas medical board's attack on Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski is finally over. His gene therapy has been shown to help cure some of the most "incurable" forms of terminal cancer. And now some states are even passing laws that protect integrative physicians.
