Hemp A New Look at A Traditional Plant
By Buddy Ojeda, CN

The U.S. dietary supplement industry is projected to grow to over 36 billion dollars in 2017. That's a 100% increase from 2001 when actual sales for that year totaled $18 billion. The industry's popularity and commercial success is due, in large part, to its ability to continually satisfy retailer and consumer appetites for new, effective, and sometimes exotic products. For the past five years, one of its rising stars has been cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant. 

The History of Cannabis
Cannabis, one of the oldest domesticated crops dating back thousands of years, is the genus for the plant that grows as three species—sativa, indica, and ruderalis. The differences between them lie primarily in their appearance, traditional uses, and amounts of phytocompounds or cannabinoids contained within each plant. Since antiquity, cannabis has been selectively bred and revered for its versatility to be transformed into clothing, textiles, animal feed, pottery, paper, and biofuels. But, it is the area of human nutrition that has sparked the most interest recently. 

The earliest records referencing cannabis' healing properties date back 10,000 years to Central Asia, where it was prized for its medicinal value. In ancient Greece, it was a treatment for inflammation and pain associated with earaches. In 600 BC India, it was utilized in their system of medicine called Ayurveda for lowering fevers and inducing sleep. Read more

Aged Garlic Extract and Hypertension
By Carmia Borek, Ph,D

High blood pressure that is undetected or uncontrolled can lead to heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure, stroke, or death. The American Heart Association states that 1 in 3 U.S. adults suffers from hypertension, which can lead to 1 in 6 deaths a year. Age, obesity, family history, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, stress, and lack of sleep also increase your risk. In addition, high salt intake, caffeine, and alcohol can worsen the condition, causing a further increase in blood pressure. People with hypertension who also have high cholesterol and difficulties keeping both under control can truly benefit from Kyolic aged garlic extract (AGE).

Aged Garlic Extract and Hypertension 
People seeking ways to control blood pressure have the option of taking antihypertensive drugs, but they may have unwelcomed side effects. Another course of action is to seek effective natural solutions. AGE is a natur al supplement that clinical studies have shown to be a safe and effective remedy against hypertension.

The Nature of AGE
Aged garlic extract is an odorless garlic product manufactured by Wakunaga of America. It's made by the extraction and aging of fresh organic garlic at room temperature for as long as 20 months. AGE is standardized by S-allyl cysteine, a water-soluble organosulfur compound, with antioxidant activity that is the most prevalent component in AGE. Other organosulfur compounds include S-allyl mercaptocysteine. Read more

New Research: The Dangers of PFOA
By Jen Morganti, ND, NEEDS Education Director

Have you ever heard of perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) or perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS)? You may not be familiar with these highly toxic chemicals, yet there's a good chance you and your family are exposed to them everyday. They're chemicals used to make non-stick kitchenware, as well as stain and water resistant fabric and carpets. You may recognize them by their commercial names—Teflon and Gore-Tex. 

PFOA/S is used in so many products and applications that virtually every human and animal on the planet has it in their blood. We ingest these chemicals every time we fry an egg in a Teflon-coated pan, microwave a bag of popcorn, or eat from fast food containers. Our children absorb it orally when they touch coated clothing and carpeting, then touch their mouth. 

There is also widespread environmental contamination; it is in our water supply due to leaching or dumping from PFOA/S chemical plants. These chemicals are very stable and break down slowly, meaning they remain in the environment and our body for a very long time, eventually finding their way into our food supply. 

While these popular chemicals offer many conveniences in our everyday lives, they are also exposing us to serious and long-term health risks.  Read more

Head Off Those Senior Moments
Submitted by LifeExtension

Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L-Threonate supports healthy memory and cognition by optimizing magnesium levels in the
brain. Magnesium is essential for over 300 different biochemical reactions in the body—from cardiovascular and bone health support to energy metabolism, mood, and especially cognitive function. Unfortunately, it's hard to maintain optimal levels of
magnesium in the brain. And that's a problem since magnesium deficiency increases with normal aging. But, because of its superior absorption into the bloodstream and nervous system, Neuro-Mag® provides the ideal form of magnesium for enhanced memory and cognitive function. 

Magnesium L-threonate is a unique form of magnesium that is delivered into the brain where it maintains the quantity of synaptic connections between brain cells and inhibits the
dysregulation of important brain cell signaling pathways. One of the key benefits of increased brain magnesium levels is
improved memory. In compelling animal models, the magnesium L-threonate contained in Neuro-Mag® improved short-term memory by 18% and long-term memory by 100%.

Optimizes Magnesium in the Brain
Worldwide, nearly two thirds of the population lacks the recommended amount of magnesium in their diet, whereas in the US it is closer to half the population. Older populations are also at a higher risk of magnesium deficiency. Don't be one of them! Unfortunately, it's even harder for your body to maintain optimal levels of magnesium in the brain.
