(NaturalNews) Do you currently buy your vitamins at the local grocery store, bulk club store, pharmacy, etc? More than likely, you are not getting what you paid for and are doing more harm than good. Getting your daily dose of vitamins and minerals should come from food, and only then should you supplement with high quality products when necessary. Many store bought vitamins contain harmful ingredients and chemicals. Synthetic vitamins are cheaply made and are in non-absorbable forms so your body does not get any nutritional benefits. Stop wasting your money and harming your body.

(NaturalNews) If you think drinking green tea seems to make your thinking more clear, you probably aren’t imagining it. Research just published in the journal Molecular Nutrition & Food Research reveals natural properties of green tea actually affect the generation of new brain cells linked to improved memory and spatial learning. This adds to the growing list of documented green tea benefits which include building stronger bones and potentially fighting prostate cancer.

(NaturalNews) Slowly, studies within conventional medicine’s research facilities support what alternative and holistic practitioners have known for some time: Vitamin D3 helps prevent and cure disease, including cancer. A recent example was offered from research by D.T. Marshall with the Medical University of South Carolina using 52 low risk prostate cancer patients taking 4,000 units of D3 daily for one year. Most of the 240,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer have low risk prostate cancer.

(NaturalNews) While the pharmaceutical industry is busy trying to conjure up new drugs to tackle the antibiotic-resistant “superbug” epidemic, a recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation explains how simple vitamin B3, also known as nicotinamide (NAM), taken in high doses may effectively thwart staph and other potentially life-threatening infections without the need for drugs.

(NaturalNews) According to recent studies reported by the Body Ecology website, cortisol, the flight or fight hormone, can disrupt your body’s vitamin D3 uptake. If cortisol is produced by chronic stress that can’t be acted upon by running or fighting for your life, the cortisol builds up in your body. This is the situation with many of us who try to suppress chronic low level stress and carry on with what many consider “normal” life.

Leucine is an interesting amino acid that boosts the anabolic effect of proteins. Nevertheless, a shake containing 25 g whey isolate still works better than a shake containing 6 g whey plus a spoonful of leucine powder, sports scientists at McMaster University in Canada discovered.

If the calculations that Dutch scientists made are correct, you burn more than 5 grams of fat extra for every cup of green tea you drink, according to a meta-analysis published by Rick Hursel in Obesity Reviews. Westerners who want to speed up their weight loss have been using green-tea extracts since the 1990s. That’s not so surprising: a 200-ml cup of green tea contains 30 mg of caffeine to start with.

If you use creatine because you want to build more strength and muscle mass, you might want to consider combining it with HMB. A Polish-American study from 2001 suggests that HMB and creatine reinforce each other’s effect on maximal strength and lean body mass. HMB is a controversial supplement. Most studies that show the effectiveness of HMB were either sponsored by the manufacturer or were done by scientists who developed and patented the substance.

Which form of Omega 3 is most Bioavailable?
by John Romano ~ source

In my last article on Omega-3 fatty acids I identified the most common forms of Omega-3 fatty acids you are likely to encounter in your food and your supplements. Those are: triglyceride, ethyl ester, phospholipid and free fatty acid. If you remember, the structure and breakdown of those various forms of essential fats are quite different, yielding the same Omega-3s, but very different when it comes to how efficiently the body can utilize them. Essentially, I’m talking about their bioavailability.

Fish oil makes life more difficult for cancer secondaries

A diet rich in fish oil may reduce the likelihood of cancer cells spreading in the body under conditions of physical stress. Researchers at Tel-Aviv University drew this cautious conclusion from an animal study published recently in Clinical Nutrition.
If there are enough healthy natural killer cells present in the body, cancer cells stand little chance: natural killer cells annihilate them. But when the body is under heavy physical stress, for example after an operation, the concentration of natural killer cells decreases.

HMB reduces muscle breakdown in endurance athletes

The leucine metabolite HMB, which is available in almost every supplement store and web shop, protects endurance athletes’ muscles if they have to run distances of 20 km or more. Sports scientists from Iowa State University wrote about the phenomenon 12 years ago in the Journal of Applied Physiology.

Older strength sports athletes need more whey after training

Just like young people do, people in their seventies increase their muscle mass if they lift weights. And they can build their muscles more quickly if they ingest a portion of whey protein immediately prior to or after their workout. The amount of whey needed to stimulate muscle growth is larger for people in their seventies than for younger athletes, according to sports scientists at McMaster University in Canada in a report soon to appear in the British Journal of Nutrition.

Many links have been found between diet and cancer; research suggests that probiotics may be useful as part of an anti-cancer diet. Probiotics are live microorganisms that may suppress the growth of bacteria that transform procarcinogens into carcinogens.
