A Note From Randal

Hello Everyone,

Hard to believe a new year is upon us. We are enjoying today nearly 70 degree weather here in Virginia. I keep wondering if its spring rather than winter. Hope your New Year is a blessing throughout.

We are grateful to all of you for sharing our sites and ezines to make the year 2004 one of the best.

Until next time, be in good health!

Do You Know What Your Homocysteine Level Is?

Homocysteine is a harmless acid-like waste product that forms when you eat red meat and other protein foods. If you have sufficient B vitamins, this is usually not a problem; however, today we find many deficient in their B vitamins, so homocysteine builds up to dangerous levels and "burns" the delicate tissue of the artery walls.

Plaque is then formed at the site of this inflammation as the body attempts to heal the damage. High levels of homocysteine increases a person's risk of heart attack by 300%.

There are two nutrients we can supplement to correct this problem:

1) Vitamin B complex
Vitamin B Complex

2) N-acetyl cysteine

Eat Those Apple Skins!

Scientific research into the cancer-beating qualities of apples has lent new strength to the old saying: "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." And it has shown grandma was right when she said the best part was the skin.

Dr Lister, research leader in nutrition and health at Crop and Food, said her team aimed to develop products based on the health benefits of antioxidants, compounds which protect the body's cells.

Health News For Kids

More Kids at Risk for Future Heart Trouble - By Kathleen Doheny

More kids are heading toward heart trouble, the American Heart Association reported Thursday in its annual assessment of cardiovascular disease, the top killer in the United States.
In 2002, the latest year covered by the AHA's annual report, 927,448 Americans died of cardiovascular disease, which includes high blood pressure, heart attacks, chest pains known as angina, congestive heart failure, stroke, and congenital heart defects.

The report shows that cardiovascular disease is actually on the decline, slightly. But for the first time, it includes a section on youth and their risk factors for heart disease, and that's on the rise.

About 1 million Americans between 12 and 19 years old, or

The Four Pillars of Sound Weight Management

Do you find yourself wondering where fiction ends and fact begins when it
comes to shedding unwanted pounds? The truth is, there are no miracles or
shortcuts to losing weight. However, one thing is certain: DIETING for
permanent weight loss doesn't work for most people.

Step one in your approach to weight management should be to eliminate the
word "diet" from your vocabulary. Instead, focus on adopting the eating
habits and lifestyle habits described in this Four Pillars of Sound Weight
Management program. "/index.php?controller=cms&id_cms=72"

Nutrition Is A Choice

Quitting Caffeine?

New Year's resolution or doctor's recommendation? Herbal Beverage is the perfect coffee substitute, with the taste and aroma of coffee. Made naturally with healthful roasted grains (barley, malt, chicory, and rye) and herbal flavorings, Herbal Beverage contains no caffeine or other ingredients of questionable safety.

Would you agree that everything you put in your body should be for the benefit and use of the body? Coffee furnishes no vitamins, minerals, enzymes or protein to the diet, but causes the body to expend energy to overcome the effects of the caffeine.

We use it to make coffee-flavored smoothies. Read some comments we recently received from a customer:

"Just wanted to let you know how much I LOVE your Herbal Beverage (coffee substitute)! Due to doctor's orders for several health issues, I was told to give up all caffiene immediately - and I LOVE coffee. Decaf was just not a good substitute. This product tastes great! I have already told several people about this product and I will be ordering more in the future!" Karen

Laughter Is Good Medicine

Two men working in a facory were talking. "I know how to get some time off," said one.

"How are you going to do that?"

"Watch," he said, and climbed up on a rafter. The foreman asked what he was doing up there, and the man replied. "I'm a lightbulb."

"I think you need some time off," the foreman said said, and the first man walked out of the factory. After a moment, the second man followed him.

"Where do you think you're going?" the foreman shouted.

"I can't work in the dark," he said.
