A Note From Randal

Hello Everyone,

During these hot times I realize how important water is to everything that is living. Without it, we and every other living thing wouldn’t last very long. Nutrients help us too but their absence isn’t noticed as quickly. Nevertheless, they are still important to our quality of life. That’s the message we aim to promote - that your quality of life is greatly affected by what you eat, drink and think.

Thanks for all you do to help us grow! Until next time, be in good health!


Featured Nutritional Product

DHEA-M (Last month we featured the female version, now we have the male form.)

The herbal base of DHEA-M provides dietary factors that are uniquely valuable to men. Placing the DHEA in an herbal base provides synergistic values not gained by taking DHEA singly. The "M" indicates that this formula is for males.

DHEA is a hormone precursor produced by the adrenal glands. After about age 25, the body's production of DHEA declines, leading many experts to believe that DHEA plays a role in the aging process.

Soy, Fish Oils May Protect Against Heart Attacks

Taking daily supplements of fish or soy oil may improve cardiac function and protect against heart attacks in the short term. Study results published in the April issue of Chest are said to be the first to show that soy oil increases heart rate variability (HRV), a measure of cardiac autonomic function.

"Our findings contradict the current belief in the medical community that increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids produces only long-term cardiac benefits," said the study's lead author, Fernando Holguin, M.,D., Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta. "In fact, our study group showed improvements in heart function in as little as two weeks."

Researchers in the U.S. and Mexico took the HRV of 58 elderly patients every other day for two months to establish an HRV baseline for each participant. For 11 weeks, half of the study participants took a daily 2 gram supplement of fish oil, which contains marine-derived omega-3 fatty acids, and the other half took a daily 2 gram supplement of soy oil, which contains plant-derived omega-3 fatty acids. The omega-3 fatty acids improve heart function by providing greater variability between beats, therefore reducing the risk of arrhythmia and/or sudden death. Heart rate variability is measured by high-frequency (HF) and low-frequency (LF) domain components and standard deviation of normal RR intervals (SDNN). Those who received fish oil experienced a significant increase in total HF and LF domain components and SDNN. Patients who received soy oil experienced a marginally significant increase in HIF and LF domain components and a significant increase in SDNN.

"Reduced HRV predicts mortality and arrhythmic complications in patients who have had a heart attack, as well as those who are considered healthy," said Holguin. "Taking a daily supplement of fish or soy oil may help reduce the risk of suffering an adverse cardiovascular event, such as arrhythmia or sudden death, specially in persons with known cardiovascular disease or at increased risk for it, such as those with lipid disorders, advanced age, hypertension, a history of smoking, and family history of heart disease."

Researchers also discovered that while patients in both groups experienced a significant increase in HRV, those who took the fish oil supplements achieved a greater increase in a shorter time period. Patients who received fish oil experienced increased HRV within the first 2.7 weeks, whereas it took 8.1 weeks for a significant increase in HRV to be seen in the group taking soy oil.

Health News For Kids

Fiber and Your Child -

Few children - even the most nutrition conscious - would say they crave a good fiber-rich meal. Although the thought of fiber might elicit gags and groans in kids of all ages, a plethora of appetizing foods are actually good sources of fiber - from many fruits to whole-grain cereals. And your child is probably eating them without even knowing it.

Not just for the senior-citizen crowd, foods that are good sources of fiber are beneficial because they're filling and, therefore, discourage overeating - even though fiber itself adds no calories. Plus, when combined with drinking adequate fluids, eating high-fiber fare helps move food through the digestive system and protect against gut cancers and constipation. It may also lower LDL cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol) as well as help prevent diabetes and heart disease.

Understanding Assimilation of Nutrients

It's easy for us to swallow vitamins, minerals and herbs. However, we have no assurance we will assimilate the nutrients once they are swallowed. For example, we can have a car that needs gasoline. We can have the gasoline sitting next to the car or in the car. However, until we put the gasoline into the place where it's needed, we are not going to receive the benefits of the gasoline. In the same manner, the human body can take nutrients and have them inside of us (the blood stream) but until they go to the cellular level (just like the gasoline tank) we won't get any benefit.

Laughing Lines
Laughter Is Good Medicine

An area pastor tells of his first Sunday in the new parish and presenting the children's message. Seems the sanctuary in the new church had some magnificent stained glass windows, so his message centered on how each of us is called of God to help make up the whole picture of life (the life of the community of the faithful). Like the pictures in the windows, it takes many little panels of glass to make the whole picture.

And then he said, "You see each one of you is a little pane." And then pointing to each child, "You're a little pane. And you're a little pane. And you're a little pane. And..."

It took a few moments before he realize why everyone was laughing so hard.
