What's so special about Mom? Gloria tells us...

Mother’s Day is very special to me.  Mother taught me so much. Two words always come to mind and they are respect and consideration.  These words have been my mantra.  

Being respectful and considerate to people, places and things can have a great effect on one’s life.  It makes all the difference in the world.  The rewards are endless.

All Mothers deserve a place in sainthood.   May God bless.

Bone Up with Fibro-Care Cal!

Balanced for bone & heart health...

Beans for Bones How much calcium do you need? An interview with naturopathic Michael Murray sheds light on the subject and answers a question we hear from many customers. According to Dr. Murray, his practical recommendation on calcium supplementation is there is no reason to go over 1000 mg a day. Most studies also show that calcium alone does not benefit bones, nor reduce the risk for osteoporosis or bone loss. Adding vitamin D appears to reduce the risk of hip fractures by 29%. However, other nutrients have a role in bone integrity. Dr. Murray cites vitamin K2 in the menaquinone form, boron, B vitamins, bioflavonoids and magnesium.

CoQ10 Regulates Serotonin in Fibromyalgia

Over the past several years, TyH has been reporting on Dr. Cordero's studies with CoQ10 and fibromyalgia (FM) which lowers oxidative stress and improves energy. Another interesting study (which also includes Cordero) shows CoQ10 helps regulate serotonin, found low in FM, which may in turn help pain in this amplified pain condition.

The small clinical trial reports that disturbances in serotonin function impact the classic FM symptoms as this important chemical modulates pain, fatigue, sleep, cognition and mood. The reason why this disturbance happens or how it plays in the pathology or disease process of FM is not agreed on by researchers. However, restoring normal function could potentially help FM patients. Measured comparison of FM patients to healthy controls showed "marked" lower levels of both CoQ10 and serotonin in blood platelets. Previous research suggests platelets are good models of serotonin levels as found in nerve cells.

Heart Healthy Fats: Omega-3

Figure holding heartHow many times have you heard that you are what you eat? It appears to be true, especially when it comes to nutrients from essential fatty acids (EFAs). In fact, the status of omega-3 fatty acids as a heart healthy nutrient is thoroughly corroborated by a large body of research.

According to the Center for Disease Control, about 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year, roughly 1 in every 4 deaths. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women but men appear to be more at risk. In 2009, more than half deaths due to heart disease were in men. Could taking a supplement help change those numbers?
