A 2006 study done by the University of Washington and Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System found an interesting link between lower testosterone levels and an increase in the mortality rate.

All men were in their 40's or older, and their mortality was tracked for up to three years later. Researchers’ data...

14 Sep Sugar Backers Paid to Shift Blame to Fat

In the 1960's the sugar industry paid scientists to play down the risk of sugar on heart disease and turn the blame on saturated fat!

19 Mar Vitamin C + Lysine = Natural Plaque Reducer

New research! The marriage of a vitamin C and lysine combination can prevent plaque build-up, strengthen artery walls, boost immunity, and prevent infections. Without vitamin C and lysine our vessel walls become weak, allowing for cracks and clots. This can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Dr. W. Gifford-Jones performed a self-study in which he took mega doses of vitamin C and lysine after suffering a heart attack, rather than taking cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins). 16 years later, he is now 90 years old, and speaks about his wise health choice! Vitamin...

22 Aug Vitamin C Improves Heart Function

If you ask most individuals what vitamin they closely associate with immune health, it might be vitamin C, but good heart function rarely pops up. In fact, new research combining meta-analysis and systematic review, which investigated the clinical effects of vitamin C on endothelial function, is providing interesting insight into this amazing free-radical scavenger. As a natural enzyme co-factor, helper molecules that assist in chemical transformations, vitamin C sustains nitric oxide levels in the blood. Published in Atherosclerosis Journal and using the Cochrane's review methodology, the authors of the analysis settled...

18 Jun Tomato Pill Promotes Blood Vessel Health

Organically grown tomatoes contain high concentrations of lycopene, an antioxidant rich compound, which also gives them their distinct red color. According to new research conducted by Dr. Joseph Cheriyan, a consultant clinical pharmacologist and physician at the Addenbrooke's Hospital, eating lycopene or taking lycopene in supplement form can help improve blood vessel function. The randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled study, which included 72 individuals, some of which already had cardiovascular disease, was divided into two separate groups. In group one, researchers gave participants 7mg of lycopene in vitamin form, and for test...

31 Jan Ultrafast CT Scan: Prevent Heart Disease & Cancer

Ultrafast, full-body CT scan, which uses a combination of advanced computer technology, is quickly becoming the highest standard in medical imaging. With the invention of this non-invasive scan, individuals now have the ability to discover blockages easier, and they can see if those same blockages were causing a lack of perfusion to the heart. As opposed to your standard X-ray, an ultra-fast CT scan shows “unique” slices of the body. These slices can be applied to any part of the body, including bones, fat, and organs, plus they are more...

16 Aug Major Studies Show Bioidentical Hormones May Decrease Cancer and Heart Disease

The journey from sick and tired to healthy and balanced is becoming a reality for many men and women, and bioidentical hormones are leading the way. Identical chemical messengers in every sense of the word, bioidentical hormones are completely “natural”. Unlike synthetic replacements such as Premarin, bioidentical hormones are derived from plants - which are then precisely matched and compounded by pharmaceutical professionals. In fact, according to a 12 plus month follow up study featured in the Gynecological Endocrinology, 189 women patients were given natural estrogen plus progesterone with or without...
