Combat Inflammation & Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease
By Laurel Sterling, MA, RDN,CDB, National Nutritionist & Educator for Carlson Labs

Heart disease is described as a range of conditions that affect the heart. Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) or heart disease, consists of coronary artery disease (CAD), congestive heart-
failure (CHF), arrhythmias, and angina. It also includes vascular diseases like cerebrovascular disease (stroke), peripheral vascular disease, and deep venous
thrombosis (DVT). Heart disease alone is the leading cause of death in the US, per the CDC. CVD claims about as many lives each year as cancer, chronic lower
respiratory diseases, accidents, and diabetes mellitus combined. But, the good news is many forms of heart disease can be prevented or treated with healthy lifestyle choices.

Beyond genetics, here are some of the main causes of heart disease. They include issues such as: atherosclerosis (fatty
deposits of cholesterol), calcium and other cellular waste in the lining of arteries, diabetes, hypertension, smoking, diet, and stress. Also, low levels of key nutrients should be considered, such as omega 3svitamin DB-complexvitamin E, and CoQ10. In my opinion, doctors should be going beyond their standard tests and consider C-reactive protein and homocysteine levels, fibrinogen, serum vitamin D (25 OHD), cortisol, and fatty acid levels in red blood cells.

Get the Immune Support You Need This Season!
Submitted by Quality of Life

It's that time of the year again and cold and flu season is among us. Don't let seasonal health issues ruin your fun! It's time for your immune system to get the support it needs to protect your body from any seasonal intruders. 

Your immune system is your body's natural defense mechanism against infection and illnesses. Many of these illnesses and bacteria can be found anywhere from your home to your office. There are many ways to keep your immune system healthy! 

A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Immune System 
Providing your body with the right nutrients is an important factor to maintaining optimal immune system health. A diet packed with antioxidants and vitamins from foods, such as berries, kale, and onions can all help deflect infections. 

Exercise is Key 
It has been shown that people who exercise tend to have stronger white blood cells, which help fight off infections. Exercise has also been linked to releasing endorphins throughout the body, which induce feelings of relaxation and positive mood—causing you to feel less stress, thus improving your immune system's function.

New Research: Cholesterol & Heart Health By Jen Morganti, ND, NEEDS Education Director

High cholesterol affects over 65 million Americans. Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that's found in all cells throughout the body. Excessively high cholesterol is considered a serious condition that increases your risk of heart disease and other health conditions. However, cholesterol in general is not the enemy we've been told it is—in fact, some cholesterol is actually necessary to maintain good health! 

There are two primary types of cholesterol—LDL and HDL. LDL is known as "bad" cholesterol because it is inflammatory and can cause damage to blood vessels, which can lead to plaque accumulation and narrowing of vessels due to atherosclerosis. 

HDL is considered "good" cholesterol, as it works to shuttle LDL cholesterol away from the arteries to prevent atherosclerosis. In fact, the role of HDL is so important that studies have shown that HDL levels under 40 create a significantly increased risk of developing coronary heart disease (CHD) and increased risk of death due to cardiovascular and noncardiovascular events. A healthy level of HDL cholesterol may also protect against heart attack and stroke, while low levels of HDL cholesterol have been shown to increase the risk of heart disease.

A recent study published October 2016, in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, evaluated the role of HDL in disease risk. The study posed this question: Does HDL play a role in other diseases, and is there such a thing as "excessive levels of HDL"? Read more
