Supplements for Digestive Health: Get Results with This Duo
If you’re older and having some age-related GI symptoms, like gas, acid reflux, bloating or irritable bowel syndrome, you should consider taking two supplements for digestion—both digestive enzymes and probiotics—not just one or the other. You’re likely to have better relief of your symptoms, and a faster restoration of normal function. (Probiotic, Enzyme, Reflux, Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

Heart Of The Matter: The Care And Feeding Of Old Thumper
Coronary heart disease (CHD) remains the single largest killer of American men and women. One of every five deaths in the United States is caused by heart attacks-in 2004, for example, there was one evey minute. About 38% of the people who experience a heart attack in a given year will die from it. And unless dramatic diet and lifestyle changes are enacted, almost all of the remaining 62% will either die of a second heart attack or heart failure or suffer a greatly reduced quality of life.

Fish makes a great main dish when you're carb counting, not only because it's high in protein and low in carbs, but also because it contains omega-3 fatty acids.

Niacin Flushing: A Helpful, Non-Harmful, Reaction in Improving Health

Is There A Benefit From Using Fish Oil Supplements As An Anti-Inflammatory and Pain Killer?

How to Get a Good Night's Sleep
Occasional sleeplessness is a very common concern. I used to recommend Melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate your "body clock"; Valerian, an herb with mild sedative effects; or L-Theanine, an amino acid with profound relaxing properties. Each of these worked for some people, but not everyone. Then I tried them in combination, and bingo! For the majority of people, this combo engenders a good night's sleep. (Melatonin, Valarian, Sleep Disorders, Sleep Theraperies)

Some of these herbal remedies are very effective immediately to help you to feel better, others may work more slowly. Many of these are powerful herbs for joint pain, as they have a natural anti-inflammatory action that may help to reduce the swelling of arthritis. (Boswellia, Turmeric, Cat's Claw, Ginger Root, Pain, Inflammation)

Fenugreek - Enhances Carb Metabolism for Diabetics
An extract from Fenugreek enhances carb metabolism showing promise for dieters and those with diabetes and insulin resistance. (Diabetes Food and Fenugreek)

Fish Oil Smashes Triglycerides
 If you have heart disease and are at high risk of cardiac arrhythmias - irregular heartbeats - that can trigger sudden death, you should be sure to get sufficient fish oil. New research suggests that fish oil can help keep heart rhythms from going berserk. (Cardiovascular health)

alpha cell  (AL-fa)

a hormone produced by the alpha cells in the pancreas. It raises blood glucose. An injectable form of glucagon, available by prescription, may be used to treat severe hypoglycemia.
