Subject: Discover the benefits of biotin, a little known B-vitamin that cangive you that natural, healthy look





The vitamin B7, often known as Biotin is normally advertised as a supplement to help with the growth of hair and nail tissue. In a new write up by Zoey Sky, she provides the general public with a few different symptoms that may indicate your body has a Biotin deficiency, such as dry and itchy skin or constant bouts of fatigue. She also provides a few benefits that come along with taking a Biotin supplement such as a positive change in thyroid health, better digestion and ability to absorb nutrients as well as support for your nervous system.

Key Takeaways:

  • When someone starts to experience a dry and brittle hair condition, or the skin starts to become red and itchy, he may have a biotin deficiency.
  • Another name for biotin is vitamin B7 and it is a water-soluble vitamin which means that it is easily depleted from the body and has to be restored.
  • Some of the reasons why one should add biotin-rich foods to the diet include that it boosts thyroid health, and it can be used in managing type 2 diabetes.

"The average recommended daily intake for biotin is five micrograms (mcg) for infants and small children, 30 mcg for adults, and 35 mcg for pregnant and breastfeeding women."

Why Should You Add Seaweed To Your Diet?

Subject: Why Should You Add Seaweed To Your Diet?





Adding seaweed to your diet can help protect your system from becoming vulnerable to several ailments, while also lessening the amount of symptoms from chronic conditions that you have already been diagnosed with. Seaweed is known to promote proper thyroid functioning, helping protect your body from being diagnosed with over or under-active thyroid disease. If you are living with diabetes, the consumption of seaweed can help reduce the effects of insulin resistance and inflammation that you may experience.

Key Takeaways:

  • In contrast with other generations about a decade ago, new technology gives the possibility for more information but that does not mean people are more aware of their surroundings.
  • Today, people have more knowledge about which food are healthy for the body or not. They can easily search for the information on the Internet.
  • Some foods have become very popular today because some food blogger or celebrity recommended it and people now add it to their daily diet.

"Research on seaweed shows its numerous benefits for the digestive system, thyroid glands, and the general health."

Subject: What Does Obesity Mean for Your Health, Heart, Thyroid, Diabetes





Many people who are concerned in general terms about obesity still have gaps in their knowledge regarding several specific health consequences, according to the Cleveland Clinic Heart Health Survey. The survey indicated that, while most people understand that obesity is bad for cardiac health, they may not appreciate the role of triglycerides or different types of cholesterol. Likewise, relatively few respondents have made major dietary changes to try to lose weight, and my people appear not to understand that even relatively modest weight loss can have significant health benefits.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although many adults are concerned about having excess weight, they fail to make the connection between excess weight and the risk of developing chronic diseases.
  • According to a cardiologist expert, Luke Laffin, MD, it was surprising from a survey that only 22 percent of respondent had ever talked to their doctor about excess weight.
  • Individuals who have hypothyroidism even before the condition is diagnosed have been observed to have the tendency for excess weight gain.

"Carrying excess weight worsens glucose tolerance and also increases the risk of developing certain cancers."

Subject: HyperThyroidism vs. HypoThyroidism: How to Tell the Difference





The thyroid, a small gland at the base of the neck, receives TSH from the pituitary gland. This relationship, whether too active or not active enough, causes many adverse side effects. Too much TSH (hyperthyroidism) can cause: weight loss, cardiovascular irregularities, nervousness, and etc. Too little TSH (hypothyroidism) causes symptoms like: depression, impaired memory, hoarseness, fatigue, weight gain, etc. Currently, no cure exists for either of these conditions, other than individual specific diets targeted at raising or lower TSH levels. As always, one should consult a doctor and get proper blood work done before making any major life changes.

Key Takeaways:

  • The American Thyroid Association asserts that more than 12% of U.S. citizens will experience a thyroid problem.
  • Moreover, an approximately 20 million individuals are currently undergoing thyroid issues, with less than half of those affected even aware that their concerns are thyroid-related.
  • The hallmark of hyperthyroidism is the production of too much thyroid hormone, which an show itself symptom-wise through unplanned weight loss and a significantly elevated pulse.

"Thyroid problems can affect anyone of any age from infancy to the latest years of life."

Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland is performing at below the usual capacity due to a deficiency in the amount of thyroid hormone being produced by the body. When the thyroid is underactive, it leads to the underperformance of other important bodily processes. The thyroid gland needs sufficient levels of iodine in order to function properly. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, pectin, and Vitamin D all help to ensure the successful operation of the thyroid as well.

  • Experts believe that between 40 percent and 60 percent of people with thyroid disease do not know they have it

"Thyroid disorders can affect a wide range of bodily functions and cause an array of confusing and often misdiagnosed symptoms."

Subject: Ask Well: Should We Be Buying Iodized Salt?





The question has been raised and it asks if we should be buying iodized salt. There have been tests done that have come to the conclusion that were are sufficient in the United States, when it comes to our iodine consumption. Most people from America get enough iodine, even if they do not use any iodized salt in their meals. They have a very small risk for having an iodine deficiency, which can lead to them getting goiters.

Key Takeaways:

  • While statistics indicate that most US citizens are iron sufficient, some pregnant women are at risk and could need supplementation.
  • Though iodine is used in some cow feeds and as a wash for cow udders, the concentration is considered mild and harmless.
  • An unlikely source of iodine, dairy, exists, because iodine is present in soil, which yields grass, in turn consumed by cows and therefore present in milk.

"Most Americans who eat a varied diet get enough iodine even if they don’t use iodized salt. They are at little risk of iodine deficiency, which can lead to goiters (swollen thyroid glands in the neck) and dwarfism and is a leading cause of mental impairment worldwide."

Your thyroid is an important gland that releases hormones responsible for body growth and development. When it slows down, a condition called hypothyroidism, your body functions slow down too including your brain and gut function. Hypothyroidism can be diagnosed with a blood test but some people's levels are just out if range to be diagnosed with hypothyroidism, they still suffer from an under functioning thyroid. You should see your doctor if you have symptoms of hypothyroidism including dry puffy skin (a condition also caused by hyperthyroidism) , low energy., constant constipation or diarrhea and weight fluctuations. Hyperthyroidism can cause quick weight loss while hypothyroidism and drop your metabolic rate causing weight gain.. Eliminating sugars and increasing protein intake can also help thyroid function .

Key Takeaways:

  • If you lack focus, feel tired and groggy in the mornings, or suffer from anxiety, you might have hypothyroidism.
  • The thyroid is a large hormone secreting gland. Those hormones regulate growth and development. If the thyroid secretes less hormones, your body will slow down.
  • Hypothyroidism is difficult to diagnose. Even if your TSH levels are normal, if you feel symptoms a higher consumption of superfoods is advisable.

"approximately 200 million people across the globe suffer from some type of thyroid dysfunction."

You may have never heard of the mineral Selenium, but did you know it does wonders for our body? Selenium can be used for making electronic devices and some glass products but a small amount of this mineral can help keep our bodies healthy. Some people may have deficiency to the mineral which can cause many problems. You can find out more about selenium and how is works for us in this article

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamins and minerals are very essential for a healthy body. One such mineral that benefits the human body is selenium. Although this mineral is mostly used in electronics and glass making, a small amount of it is required by the human body as well. Selenium deficiency can lead to many possible health hazards.
  • Studies have revealed that selenium consists of antioxidant properties that improve the health of the cells in the human body. It prevents cell damage, provides defense against various infections, and contributes to the proper functioning of the Thyroid gland by regulating the Thyroid hormone—thyroxine (T4).
  • The common source of selenium is the soil; therefore, the amount of selenium received through plant-based produce depends on the amount of selenium present in the soil. If the soil is found to be without selenium or in traces, farmers can add selenium fertilizers to the soil to meet the required quantity. Food sources of selenium are red meat, fish, seafood, and Brazil nuts.

"It is important to include selenium in an appropriate amount in the diet."

Subject: Toxins in Your Fast-Food Packaging?





Fast food isn’t exactly known for its health benefits, but a new U.S. study suggests even the packaging may be harmful. That’s because the study found one-third of fast food packaging contains chemicals that give it stain-resistant, water-repellant and nonstick properties. The trouble is these fluorinated chemicals have also been linked to an increased risk of certain cancers, hormone problems, high cholesterol, obesity and immune suppression in human and animal studies.

Key Takeaways:

  • Testing on more than 400 samples from restaurants nationwide revealed that nearly half of fast-food wrappers and one out of five paperboard food boxes contained detectable levels of fluorine, said lead researcher Laurel Schaider. She's an environmental chemist at the Silent Spring Institute in Newton, Mass.
  • Previous studies have linked some fluorinated chemicals such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) to kidney and testicular cancer, low birth weight, Thyroid disease, decreased sperm quality, pregnancy-induced high blood pressure, and immune system problems in children, the study authors said in background notes.
  • Major U.S. manufacturers voluntarily phased out PFOA and PFOS for most uses starting in 2011, but other countries still produce them. These study results show that fluorinated chemicals are still widely present in food packaging, the authors said.

"Major U.S. manufacturers voluntarily phased out PFOA and PFOS for most uses starting in 2011, but other countries still produce them."

The evidence says yes. According to a recent study, getting less than three hours of sleep within twenty-four hours causes increased strain on the heart, elevated blood pressure, and increased heart rates. Thyroid hormones and cortisol also went up, which can lead to stress and eventually heart disease. It is clear that getting enough sleep is in your best interests in the short- and long-term, along with a healthy lifestyle.

  • the occasional all-night without a second-thought about what might happen to our bodies in the process.
  • Our friends at Shape Magazine share their findings about lack of sleep's health consequences.
  • all routinely need to make it through the day on no or very little sleep. And while no one thinks pulling an all-night is good for your health, there's actual evidence that it hurts your heart.

Subject: 5 Sure Fire Ways to Know if You Have Hashimoto’s





Hashimoto’s disease is a hypoThyroid disorder that is caused by an immune attack on your Thyroid. This leads to a generally fatigued and weak feeling that persists longer than expected. It can also affect the health of your hair, your weight, and how you respond to cold environments. So, if you have been feeling rundown for a while and just generally down in the dumps with any of the other above symptoms, it may be time to talk to your doctor to get tested.

Key Takeaways:

  • A tipping point occurs when Thyroid gland tissue can no longer produce Thyroid hormones.
  • As your Thyroid gland weakens, symptoms gradually appear. At first, you may feel tired without reason. You might even wake up tired.
  • If you complain to your doctor about fatigue – the main symptom of hypoThyroidism – you will likely get clinical screening tests for anemia and hypoThyroidism.

"Hashimoto’s is the most common autoimmune Thyroid disorder. For a variety of reasons, your immune system sets out to attack your Thyroid gland. Over time, the Thyroid gland is slowly destroyed"

The results found indicate great promise for the use of high-dose intravenous vitamin C treatments to help reduce inflammation in cancer patients, which is one of the major factors of cancer and its progression. A range of cancers has been proven to benefit from vitamin C treatments, including cancers of the prostate, breast, skin, bladder, lung, pancreas, Thyroid, and B-cell lymphoma.

Key Takeaways:

  • Now, another study is confirming its effectiveness against inflammation in cancer patients, one of the primary markers.
  • High levels of inflammation seem to indicate a higher risk of cancer as well as a less hopeful prognosis for healing and recovery.
  • The current amount of inflammation in the body can actually predict the chances and length of survival time for numerous types of cancer.

You probably know that calcium is good for you. But in reality, you’re probably murky on the details as to why it’s so important, and like many people, you may not be getting enough calcium in your diet. Bones provide a mineral reservoir to buffer the blood levels of calcium, to keep it in a narrow range, for optimal neural and muscular function. Muscle contraction is initiated by calcium binding to signal the action.

Key Takeaways:

  • Calcium is a hard, silvery metallic element with an atomic number of 20 and an atomic weight of 40.078.
  • Calcium regulation is controlled by paraThyroid hormone, vitamin D and calcitonin, and affected by magnesium and phosphorus level.
  • The U.S. National Institute of Health reported that a great majority of people are not consuming the Recommended Daily Allowance of calcium.

The Dangers Of Over The Counter Pain Meds

Subject: The Dangers Of Over The Counter Pain Meds

In many ways, pain meds such as Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen have provided countless patients with an inexpensive treatment for regular aches and pains, headaches and migraines, and to help deal with fevers. There's no doubt that these painkillers work, but there are doubts whether their positive side effects outweigh the negative. 


Dangers associated with Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen


Liver damage

Liver damage is a common problem, damage that can't be repaired or reversed. One of the main side effects that manifests within children taking either Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen is known as Reye Syndrome, a condition that produces excessive fat deposits around the child's organs (especially their liver). This condition can result in death as pressure can build up to fatal levels around the child's brain.

Kidney damage

Other organ damage related to Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen usage includes inflammation within the kidneys (leading eventually to their complete deterioration) and hyperThyroidism. 

Internal bleeding

Higher doses of pain meds can increase the danger of bleeding or torn stomach lining by several times. Stomach problems are also often noted within regular users of these over the counter pain meds. While bleeding ulcers tend to be the most commonly discussed issue within the media, other problems include heartburn, indigestion, bloating, diarrhea, nausea, frequent and unavoidable burping and vomiting. Indeed, severe reactions to these painkillers can even cause a cerebral edema, a condition where excess water floods around the brain, causing anything from migraines to death.

These are some the many side effects and negative conditions associated with significant usage of over the counter painkillers. While it's clear that many people use Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen for extended periods of time without developing serious side effects, it's also clear that the potential dangers of regular and prolonged use need to be taken into consideration. If you are already at risk for any of the above problems, and if you are currently on any Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen medications, you should consult your doctor.

Are You Gaining Weight For No Reason? Check Your Thyroid

Subject: Are You Gaining Weight For No Reason? Check Your Thyroid

The human body is an extremely complex system of checks and balances that's held in a very delicate state of equilibrium. It's hard to understand at times but with the patience of science, we can usually get to the bottom of whichever mysteries our bodies will present us with.

One of the mysteries that some people might find themselves faced with at some point in their lives is that of gaining weight for no reason. Diets and exercise will seem not to work. A possible culprit might be found in a small organ known as the Thyroid gland. Let’s have a closer look at it and how it may be affecting your metabolism and weight.


How the Thyroid Gland Works

The Thyroid is the largest gland in your endocrine system of glands and is located right in the middle of your neck just below the Adam’s apple in men. Endocrine glands refer to glands that secrete hormones in the human body. The Thyroid gland produces the hormones Thyroxine and Triiodothyronine, which are referred to as the Thyroid hormones. These hormones play a significant role in your energy regulation and metabolism functions by prompting almost every cell in your body to increase its activity. This is essentially what your metabolic rate is. There are three basic categories of problems that can occur in your Thyroid gland, as follow:

  • HypoThyroidism or Underactivity – too little Thyroid hormones produced
  • HyperThyroidism or Overactivity – too much Thyroid hormones produced
  • Growths – include benign cysts and nodules as well as cancers of the Thyroid gland

The Thyroid Gland and Weight Gain

When too little Thyroid hormone is being produced in a patient, their metabolic rate will slow down, meaning that the body’s cell will not be burning up calories at their optimum rate. This will lead to these unspent calories being deposited throughout the body in the form of fat. The person affected might find themselves suddenly gaining weight without any apparent changes in their lifestyle or eating habits. This is also why dieting and exercise may not have the desired effect on the patient.

The symptoms of an underactive Thyroid can be very vague because the hormone acts throughout the body but should you find yourself experiencing some of these, consider testing specifically for hypoThyroidism:

  • General weakness
  • Cold intolerance
  • Heightened cholesterol levels
  • Fatigue
  • Sleepiness
  • Constipation
  • Mood swings
  • Forgetfulness
  • Heavy menses
  • Coarse, dry hair and skin
  • Weight gain
  • Changes in blood pressure
  • Depression and/or irritability
  • Muscle cramps and aches
  • Swelling in legs (edema)
  • Blurred vision
  • Hoarse voice and sore throat
  • Hair loss (on head and/or body)

Subject: Learn how iodide can fix hemorrhoids over night

Hemorrhoids, also popularly known as piles, is a condition characterized by enlarged veins in the lower rectum. This condition is majorly caused by blood blockage in the hemorrhoidal complex veins. The hemorrhoidal veins is located just above the internal opening of the anus and can enlarge enough to protrude and give subsequent disturbance and squeezing while setting causes pain.

Constipation and hardened stools due to lack of diet or fluids is the primary cause of hemorrhoids. People who are experiencing constipation have little or no peristalsis process (the process that cause wave-like motion in their bowel through their intestines), and when the bowel strain to have such movement, the result is hemorrhoids. Other causes of hemorrhoids include diarrhea, pregnancy, heavy lifting, and long periods of standing or sitting.


Treatment

The standard conventional treatment includes lubrication of the surface of the veins with medication that reduce pain and help to shrink the hemorrhoid. Sitz baths and cold or hot packs are also used to soothe the irritated area. In conventional allopathic treatment, surgeons can operate the hemorrhoids and successfully remove it or may be even hardened through injection.

Iodine is popular for eliminating hemorrhoids. Iodine is used in a form called SSKI (Saturated Solution of Potassium Iodide). It should be clear that SSKI can easily cause burning sensation and should be used with a carrier such as flaxseed or olive. A mix of 20 drops of SSKI should be mixed with carrier oil and applied on the affected area at night just before going to bed. Note that iodine stains and it is recommended that you wear bedclothes that you don’t worry about.


How Iodide can fix Hemorrhoids over Night

Saturated solution of potassium iodine is close to 100 in inhibiting and killing bacteria, fungi, and viruses before causing serious infections. So when you apply a few drops of this product with carrier oil, you are sure of preventing any microorganism from affecting the protruded rectum. Taking an ounce of water with about 10 drops of water also results in rapid accumulation of SSKI in all secretions parts of the body and highly assists to eliminate hemorrhoids.

Applying SSKI on the hemorrhoids affected area ensure that it is soft and protected from all kind of germs and this alone enough to solve the problem overnight. A research done show that 6 to 8 drops of SSKI taken daily significantly reduce fibrocystic breast disease to insignificance within 3 to 6 months and when victims of hemorrhoids use apply SSKI or take some drops of the same with water, they get healed within a few weeks.

While using SSKI for treatment, it is vital to monitor the Thyroid functions since there sometimes side effects of this treatment. One of the side effect although minimal is peyronie’s disease that results when the tissue along the shaft of the penis thickens and results in erections that increasingly curve and even painful.

Applying SSKI to thicken tissue twice a day over some weeks helps to soften it considerably and assist to prevent any micro-organism from investing in the affected area and eventually allow normal functioning. In fact, hemorrhoids, disappears sometimes literally overnight when a mixture of 20 drops of SSKI and an ounce of flaxseed oil is applied to them at night.

Must Read Facts About Your Thyroid Hormone and Iodine

Author: Darrell Miller
Subject: Must Read Facts About Your Thyroid Hormone and Iodine

The Thyroid is that butterfly-shaped gland found in front of the neck area, only a little lower than the Adam's apple. It's the organ responsible for your body's metabolism, the process related to how you burn up calories. The Thyroid gland makes use of iodine to produce Thyroid hormone. That's the chemical substance released into the bloodstream to perform the metabolic functions of the Thyroid. With inadequate Thyroid hormones, your body produces less energy, slowing down metabolism. Without iodine, the Thyroid is unable to produce Thyroid hormones. 

HypoThyroidism

Sometimes, the Thyroid slows down, causing a common disease, we all know as hypoThyroidism.  It's simply the case when an insufficient amount of Thyroid hormones is manufactured by the Thyroid gland.  It is usually diagnosed through blood tests that check hormone levels.

Thyroid Gland

Signs of HypoThyroidism

If you have a slow Thyroid or underactive Thyroid disease (another name of HypoThyroidism), you may observe one of the following signs.  However, know that these symptoms may mimic other health problems which makes it more difficult to diagnose.

  • Irregular menstrual period
  • Constipation
  • Anxiety; depression
  • Having dry skin, dry hair and hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Being sensitive to cold temperature
  • Slow heart rate
  • Having a swollen Thyroid gland (goiter)
  • Having weight problems (either quickly gain weight or having difficulty in losing weight)
  • Suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome (pain, tingling and numb sensations in the hand)

How to Avoid HypoThyroidism

One of the causes of the Thyroid to slow down is having too little iodine in your diet. Remember, iodine is the required component to produce Thyroid hormones.  And our body doesn't have iodine.  Thus, it should come from an external source, that is, through the foods we eat.  You need to boost up iodine in your diet. Use only iodized salt when seasoning food.  As much as possible, also eat shellfish, dairy products, eggs, saltwater fishes, seaweeds and other saltwater edible food.

A certain amount of this mineral is required in order to protect the body from deadly viruses and also to aid in healthy Thyroid functioning.

Selenium deficiency frequently goes untreated simply because it does not show any noticeable symptoms. If the levels of selenium are low, the Thyroid will have to work extra hard to manufacture its hormones and the body will have a tough job converting those hormones to a form the cells can use. This is because selenium is a chief ingredient of the molecules necessary for the body to be able to create and use seleno-proteins (Thyroid hormones).

The initial stages of low selenium levels will reduce the optimal production of the Thyroid hormone in the glands. If this continues the Thyroid gland becomes inflamed. Eventually, this is what leads to Thyroid autoimmune problems

Problems that come with low selenium levels can be more serious when the levels of mineral, iodine, is low.  Iodine is well known for its key role in Thyroid health.  Selenium is also important in aiding your body to recycle iodine. Low selenium levels coupled with low iodine levels can lead to Thyroid imbalance

An enlarged Thyroid is known as goiter. This is one of the serious forms of Thyroid imbalance. Most individuals diagnosed with goiter usually have low iodine levels, however research has also shown that the patient also have low levels of selenium. Therefore, it is very important to treat both deficits so as to re-establish Thyroid stability

Doctors readily admit that there is no any specified dose of selenium required for better functioning of the Thyroid. The one thing they agree on is that optimizing selenium intake aids in general health.

Zinc deficiency leads to slow recovery of injuries, diarrhea in children, stunted growth; it may disrupt the Thyroid functioning, low levels of testosterone. Zinc is necessary for the immune system, it cures the common cold faster, and it is used for Attention deficit disorder, Down syndrome, colitis and many other illnesses.

      Copper is a mineral mostly found in meat, and many foods we already intake. The recommended daily intake of copper is only 2 mg. The National center for biotechnology information warns about recent studies who found copper deficiency. Copper deficiency leads to Menkes' syndrome, anemia, and neutropenia.

      Iodine - 3. 40% of the world population is at risk of iodine deficiency. The use of iodine is at risk of extinction because of using iodine in salt. Many people do not have the proper nutrition to obtain the daily need of iodine. Iodine deficiency leads to hyperThyroidism, enlargement of the Thyroid gland, miscarriages in pregnancy, preterm delivery of babies, and to permanent mental damage in babies. Iodine is found in meat, dairy products, soy, eggs, milk, and ice cream.

      Manganese is a mineral responsible for blood clotting, sex hormones, and it forms the connective tissue. Manganese is found in the bones, kidneys, pancreas, adrenal, and pituitary glands. According to the University of Maryland, 37% of the Americans are at risk of manganese deficiency, and do not take the daily recommended intake of manganese. Manganese deficiency changes the fat metabolism; it causes bone deformities, skin rash, increases calcium in blood, and causes many other symptoms, which lead to serious medical problems. Manganese is found in nuts, seeds, whole grains.

      Chromium is found in meat, whole grain, some fruits, but these foods provide a very small amount of chromium in the body. The recommended daily intake of chromium is 50-200 mg a day and food provides 2 mg per serving. The elder are at a higher risk of chromium deficiency. Research has found that chromium deficiency leads to glucose intolerance and insulin resistance, and increased chromium intake has fixed diabetes symptoms in patients.

Who is at risk of trace mineral deficiency?

Vegetarians are at a higher risk of mineral deficiency as most of the sources of these minerals are coming from meat. Vegetarians should consider taking trace mineral supplementation. We need a very small amount of minerals for proper functioning of our bodies, still we have a mineral deficiency which leads to many illnesses, improper functioning in the body. The mineral deficiency has led to lower life span in humans. Our ancestors lived longer because they ate home cooked food, rich in the most important nutrients. Daily trace mineral supplementation is essential for returning our health and immune system on the right track. That is why we all need proper trace mineral supplementation to compensate for the low levels of minerals.

Sunlight is responsible for the conversion of cholesterol to vitamin D on the skin but when exposure to sunlight do not always synthesize sufficient amounts, this D vitamin can be obtained from various sources.

The recommended daily dose of this vitamin is 1000 IU for adults or more if there is a deficiency. As mentioned, insufficient amount of such vitamin from sunlight can be supplemented by various sources such as the following: - Fatty fishes like salmon, mackerel, sardines and tuna - Dairy products, such as milk, soy milk, yogurt and cheese - Grains - Other food products like egg, beef liver and orange juice Insufficient amount of this vitamin can also be supplemented through the consumption of multivitamins, which can provide approximately 400 IU of vitamin D-3. However, take note that higher doses, such as the ones with up to 50,000 IU, require a prescription from your doctor.  You can find D-3 in dosages as high as 10,000IU at a health food store.

This fat-soluble vitamin is responsible for the proper absorption of calcium in the body, thus making it essential for the bones. Insufficient amount of this essential vitamin in the body can result to brittle bones and other health problems. On the other hand, sufficient amount of this essential vitamin can provide you lots of health benefits, such as the following:

- Bone Health: as mentioned, this fat-soluble vitamin facilitates the proper absorption of calcium from foods and the reabsorption of essential minerals by the kidneys. Apart from that, it also boosts the absorption of phosphorous, which is also essential for the health of the bones and prevents various diseases, such as rickets and osteomalacia.

- Immune System: this vitamin is also beneficial for the body's immune system. According to various studies conducted, it can also help prevent autoimmune disorders from developing and is useful in treating inflammatory diseases.

- Neuromuscular System: vitamin D-3 can enhance the functions of the neuromuscular system, as well as protect the body against muscle weakness due to the process of aging.

Can Vitamin D-3 Do More For Bone Health Than Calcium?

Subject: Can Vitamin D-3 Do More For Bone Health Than Calcium?

Loss of density and mass in bones has become very common these days because of the increase in the number of people suffering from osteoporosis. It is shocking to note that the number of osteoporosis related fractures in US is more than 1.3 million. Bone health can be improved by taking the right nutrients and minerals. It is generally assumed that calcium is the only mineral needed to prevent and treat osteoporosis. Calcium supplement have been used by many people to improve their bone strength. is it correct?

Do calcium supplements treat osteoporosis completely?  The answer is NO.

A recent study conducted in Iceland concludes that maintaining right levels of vitamin D-3 provides greater protection to bones than taking calcium supplements every day.

What are the results of this study?

Maintaining ideal levels of PTH or paraThyroid hormone is essential for bone health. It has been proved by researchers that sufficient vitamin D-3 levels ensure the ideal level of PTH and not calcium. PTH is not in the ideal level in an individual who takes more than 1200 mg calcium a day if he has vitamin D deficiency. On the other hand PTH level is ideal in a person who has sufficient vitamin D even if he takes less than 800 mg of calcium a day.

Vitamin D-3 has calcium sparing effect and if the status of vitamin D in the body is assured, there is no need to take calcium of more than 800 mg a day. The results of this study clearly indicate the importance of vitamin D-3 for bone health. It is clear that sufficient levels of vitamin D-3 are more important than sufficient levels of calcium to prevent osteoporosis. In another study, women who were hospitalized for osteoporosis related fractures were studied. It was found that more than 50% of them had vitamin D-3 deficiency.

The duration of the study was two years and it proved that vitamin D-3 supplementation improved the bone strength and reduced the risk of fractures in these women. It is an unarguable fact that calcium is an important mineral to build bones and to keep bones healthy and strong, but how does the human body absorb calcium? It is the presence of vitamin D-3 that helps in absorption of calcium. Without adequate vitamin D-3, intake of calcium supplements is meaningless.

To absorb calcium sufficient amount of vitamin D-3 must be present in the body. Vitamin D-3 is also needed for the efficient utilization of calcium by the body. The mass and density of the bones are increased only when calcium is absorbed by the body. Absorption of calcium is not possible without vitamin D. Vitamin D-3 plays an important role to build bones in children and to keep bones strong and healthy in adults. It also improves immunity, prevents muscle weakness, regularizes the functioning of Thyroid glands and helps in blood clotting.

Deficiency in vitamin D-3 may increase the risks of Alzheimer's disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Vitamin D-3 is the natural form of vitamin D. It is produced when skin is exposed to the ultraviolet rays in the sun. Those who live in latitudes, who have dark skin, who spend most of the day indoors and who wear sunscreen lotion whenever they step outdoors lack sufficient levels of vitamin D-3. They should take vitamin-D supplements to avoid a lot of health risks and to improve their bone health.

Benefits of Extended Release Guggulipid

Subject: Benefits of Extended Release Guggulipid

Guggul is one of the holistic ancient herbal extracts derived from the Commiphora wightii plant that had been predominant in India although some parts of northern Africa and Asia still had some traces of the same. Over the years, Guggul resin gum derived from the plant has been used to promote a healthy living, and has a good number of recent scientific research findings to back it up. Some of the health benefits associated with the use of Guggulipids supplements (also known as the Guggulsterone Supplements) include lowering of Low Density Lipoproteins (Bad Cholesterol), reducing inflammation, and significantly lowering the risk of suffering from cardiovascular diseases, tumors and cancers.

Research:

Extensive scientific research shows that Guggulipids play an important role in inhibition of its synthesis in the liver and its hydrolysis into bile salts. It also acts on the Thyroid gland which in turn controls the Basal Metabolic Rate that directly relates to the rate of cholesterol catabolism in the body. Additionally, a cascade of reactions in the liver during the process of cholesterol hydrolysis down-regulates the uptake of cholesterol in the gut which ensures that the body is at a healthy blood cholesterol level.

Anti-Inflammatory:

The anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and anti-cancer effects are highly associated with the stimulation of the liver to release C-Reactive Protein. Even though the CRP protein is primarily produced by the body in response to inflammation and cell death, presence of the CRP in the blood stream prior to an acute inflammation or cell death plays an important role in toning down inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid inflammation as well as killing abnormal cells before they develop into tumors and cancerous cells.

However, Guggulsterones are rapidly regenerated in the body in the same rate that other steroid hormones are degenerated which makes the use of extended release Guggulipid supplements very essential. This makes it possible to have the body under constant supply of the component for optimal guggulsterone health benefits.
