Calcium / Nutrition / Research / September 1, 2015

Did you know that over 75% of Americans are deficient in calcium? That’s everyone, not just omnivores. But if you are a plant-based eater, it’s important to know where and which sources you can get your calcium from. If you are 51 years old or older, it is recommended you get between 1200-1500 mg of calcium per day. (Unfortunately, the USDA says most of us are getting closer to 674 mg of calcium from our diets) So it’s not only crucial that we get the recommended amount of calcium per day, but also from sources that are healthy and calcium-rich. The following are the top plant-based calcium sources: * Soy: There has been some confusion about soy and its effects on health.

Bone-Healthy Living / Research / August 11, 2015

JAMA Study Confirms: Inadequate Vitamin D + Below RDI Calcium Intake + No Vitamin K2 = No Help for Postmenopausal Women’s Bones That’s what the study just published August 3, 2015 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) tells us. Medline, had a different take on the JAMA study’s results. They lead with a headline that informs us: “No Bone Benefit Seen for High Vit D Doses After Menopause” You’re sure to see variations on the Medline theme in the news. Every major media outlet is telling us that we should forget about vitamin D being of any use to postmenopausal women who want to have healthy bones. This is not only misleading, but puts people who don’t have the real facts in danger. You see, there will be people who read these headlines and misleading articles and quit…

Nutrition / Omega 3 / Research / July 30, 2015

I’m sorry to burst your bubble… but if you are taking fish oil…you’re probably wasting your money. Now, I’m not saying that fish oil itself isn’t beneficial, because it is. Omega 3 fatty acids are crucial for combating many diseases and health conditions – that’s been proven. What I’m trying to say is that many of the most popular fish oils on the market right now are not going to have ANY positive effect on your health. That’s right.  Zero benefit. You see, fish oil is BIGGGG business.   Whenever there is big competition with a commodity like fish oil has become, hundreds of brands compete on price.   And price wars leads to cutting corners to make an ever cheaper product.  Today the norm is fish oil capsules with low amounts of EPA and DHA, and oil that has already started…
