Haiti Relief and Development

What Are Super Fruits ?

Super Fruits have exotic names and are from faraway places. The out-of-the-ordinary nature of these fruits adds to their appeal.A definition might include: a food that has exceptional nutrient density; a food that has extremely powerful antioxidant capacity; or a food that has the potential for reducing disease risk.

Can any food meet all of these requirements? The answer is definitely YES! Most Super Fruits deliver a full day’s requirement for specific nutrients in a single serving. They also “put out the fire” of inflammation by generously donating anti-inflammatory antioxidants wherever there is a need. Antioxidants help fight the battle against the calendar by turning back the clock on premature aging.

Super Fruits are daily insurance against the antioxidant debt that leads to disability and disease. These nutrient-dense foods allow us to catch up on any antioxidant deficiency we face because of stress, pollution and toxins in our environment, or simply overexertion. Super Fruits work to reduce inflammation, providing us with protection from disease and disability, as well as a little protection from the calendar by reversing premature aging in our cells. As you know, we all need the nutrients provided in fruits and vegetables. Health experts agree that disease prevention is best effected with the following amount of fruits and vegetables daily: * Children: five servings * Women: seven servings * Men: nine servings According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, North American adults eat less than three servings of fruits and vegetables daily. This habit has caused the death rate from heart disease, cancer and many other causes to skyrocket. Worse yet, those who choose to reject the antioxidant protection from fruits and vegetables end their lives with nine to 17 years of disability. When consumption is high, disease incidence is low. Modern medical research confirms that people who eat Super Fruits regularly enjoy a reduction in diseases ranging from Alzheimer’s and heart disease to leukemia and prostate cancer. Of course, we still need to make dietary choices that give us a healthy advantage. In the context of a healthy lifestyle, Super Fruits can be a welcome addition. Take a variety of Super Fruits to take advantage of the strengths offered by each one. Use them daily to ensure a life of wellness and vitality!

Alzheimer’s Disease − Separating Facts From Myths

My own family has been touched by Alzheimer’s so it’s very important for me to help you separate the myths from the truth about AD. By having the facts you can better protect yourself against the onset of Alzheimer’s or help your loved ones who are already suffering from the disease.Myth: We see more people with Alzheimer’s disease because of media attention

Truth: The number of people with AD is increasing every year and the percentage of people with AD in North America is increasing, though the lifespan is getting shorter. The number of people with Alzheimer’s disease is increasing at an alarming rate. There is no cure. Currently, over 500 clinical trials are being conducted just to find a way to slow down the runaway epidemic of AD. But trying to reversethe damage of AD once the disease has progressed is like trying to hold back the tide with your bare hands: there is little hope of success. Prevention and slowing the progress of AD are the only hopes we currently have. Year after year we watch as this disease steals the people we love. The irony of this disease is so disheartening: AD strikes when we are at the richest point in life in terms of experience and wisdom.

Myth: Alzheimer’s disease is genetic; there is nothing we can do about it.

Truth: AD is the accumulation of many years of damage to your brain, causing plaque to build up and nerves to tangle. There are prevention strategies that work to help reduce the damage to our brain and to reduce the chances of AD. The chances of being diagnosed with AD increase as we age. AD affects about half of people age 85 and older. However, this is more a product of biological age than chronological age. In other words, AD has more to do with how well we are aging rather than how many days we cross off our calendar! AD is a disease of accumulation: every trauma to our head, every toxin that poisons our brain, every stressful day and every moment we are nutrient-defi cient add to the accumulated damage to our brain. This is biological aging and it has little to do with the calendar. Genetics absolutely plays a role in AD development. We can often get a glimpse into our genetics by looking at our homocysteine (HCY) levels. The higher the blood levels of HCY, the greater the likelihood we will develop AD. A gene defect that predisposes a person to AD is called the MTHFR defect. It is common in about 40% of people. This gene pumps out HCY in very high amounts. What is the solution for elevated HCY? Foods and food supplements rich in B vitamins. (A published clinical trial of HCY Guard demonstrated that it reduced elevated HCY levels by 35% in just 42 days!) So, while there are definite genetic markers to help us determine our AD risk, there are also proven strategies to help us protect against the damage that may lead to AD. Reduce your risk by reducing toxic, inflammatory, brain-destroying levels of homocysteine.

Myth: Only drugs are powerful enough to stop Alzheimer’s disease

Truth: AD prevention depends to a large extent on the choices we make every day.

According to the National Institutes of Health, the majority of AD prevention strategies rest in our own hands. And, while experimental drugs and vaccines offer some hope of prevention, proven strategies exist that you can use today:

* Reduce toxins, including toxic levels of HCY * Meticulously manage your blood pressure, blood sugar and LDL (“bad” cholesterol) levels * Increase antioxidants and nutrient-dense foods * Supplement your diet with proven nutrients for healthy aging * Reduce inflammation with Omega-3 essential fatty acids * Protect your head from injury * Exercise every day and get your rest every night * Stay socially engaged * Commit yourself to lifelong learning.

During National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, let’s use this opportunity to learn all we can about AD prevention strategies and implement them daily.

Beat the Economy Blues

Struggling with a tough economy can take a real toll on health. In fact, earlier this year the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published guidelines to help people cope.
The guidelines state: “Economic turmoil (e.g., increased unemployment, foreclosures, loss of investments and other financial distress) can result in a whole host of negative health effects – both physical and mental. It can be particularly devastating to your emotional and mental well-being.” Some of the health risks involved include depression, anxiety, overeating and substance abuse.

Years of clinical data demonstrate why taking a quality B-12 supplement may help ease emotional and mental problems. It’s well known that B-12 deficiency can lead to decreased mental and nerve functioning, including mental confusion and forgetfulness, mood swings and low energy.

What’s more, because aging reduces our bodies’ ability to absorb B vitamins, we may be eating healthy foods, but still be lacking in these crucial vitamins.

Alfred Libby, M.D. – Inventor of TriVita Sublingual B-12, B-6 & Folic Acid Dr. Libby, a renowned nutraceutical pioneer, worked to help hundreds of patients feel better every day. An associate of Dr. Linus Pauling (Nobel Prize Laureate), Dr. Libby developed this unique, sublingual delivery system for his own patients. It was known to give similar mental energy results as B-12 shots, but without the shots’ added pain and expense. Coping with the economic “meltdown” is a real struggle for many people around the world, but it doesn’t have to be the controlling factor in our happiness. If you or someone you care about is having financial trouble, stay focused on health to feel better. Let TriVita’s quality B-12 products, and the 10 Essentials, be your key to beating the economy “blues.”
