Do You Need Vitamin D?

A deficiency of vitamin D has been linked to osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, cancer and more.

Do you get enough vitamin D every day?

CalciAIM™ For The Missing Nutrients

If you're looking for a great-tasting nutritional supplement that contains some of the most commonly overlooked nutrients and vitamins, then CalciAIM™ may be the beverage for you.

Statistically, most people in the United States do not get enough calcium, magnesium and vitamin D.

However, CalciAIM™ contains all three in balanced amounts, as well as zinc, vitamin C and copper.

In addition to tasting great on its own, it mixes well with ProPeas® or Peak Endurance®.

P.S. Along with keeping teeth and bones healthy CalciAIM™ also promotes fat burning, reduces fat storage, supports hormonal balance as well as contributes to heart health.

In addition to calcium, each serving of CalciAIM™ provides vitamin D, magnesium and zinc - all necessary nutrients in order to fully absorb the calcium.

CalciAIM™ powder creates a ninety-eight percent absorbable calcium drink - unlike caplets and tablets, which are only twenty to thirty percent absorbable.

Your Muscles: How Long Before Inactivity Takes Its Toll?

According to the latest scientific research, lying around on the couch for too long will make you physically weaker.

The Center for Healthy Aging and the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen found it only takes two weeks of immobility for people to lose about one third of their muscular strength, putting them on the same level as someone forty or fifty years older.

The study was done to monitor muscle loss in people who were injured or sick. They found during periods of inactivity, young people lose more muscle mass than older people. In addition, fit people lost more muscle mass than unfit people.

From the press release:

"The more muscle mass you have, the more you’ll lose. Which means that if you’re fit and become injured, you’ll most likely lose more muscle mass than someone who is unfit, over the same period of time. But even though older people lose less muscle mass and their level of fitness is reduced slightly less than in young people, the los…

The Perfect Treatment for Type 2 Diabetes

Can You Overeat on a Low Carb Diet?

"It’s very difficult to overeat on a low carb diet because meat is satiating. No one binge eats on steak and eggs. They binge eat on high-carb foods, because those foods override the shutoff response in the hypothalamus." - Dr. Mary Dan Eades, M.D.

Are You Starving on a Full Stomach?

Even though they’re full, people overeat because they’re not truly nourished. They’re starving on a full stomach.

Nutrition is more than making your hunger pangs disappear.

Are you starving on a full stomach?

BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra are Real Food

Any supplement you or your kids take should be made from real food. This is the only way your body can absorb the vitamins

When it comes to nutrition and your health, absorption is everything. It's not what's in your vitamins - it's what vitamins end up in you. This separates a good supplement from the grocery store cheapies.

Over 90% of the vitamins on the market today are not fully absorbed by the body. What's the point of taking a supplement if your body cannot use it?

P.S. By the way, natural is not the same as real-food based. There is no FDA definition of "natural", so many products can be labeled "natural" and still be useless for consumers.

The trouble with "natural" is a company can start with a natural source, like a plant, then heat it so much the enzymes die.

Or a manufacturer can add chemicals or other artificial ingredients and still call it "natural".

That's why today the word essen…

What Diet Coke Does To Your Body in One Hour

(Click image to enlarge)

Research indicates diet soda may have negative side effects, including weight gain to Type 2 diabetes.

According to this guy, here's what happens to your body after drinking a Diet Coke or any other diet soft drink:

In the first 10 minutes: The soda's phosphoric acid attacks the enamel of your teeth, while artificial sweeteners like aspartame hit your system. The aspartame may trick your body into thinking it has just processed sugar.

In 20 minutes: The soda can trigger the production of insulin in your body, which sends your body into fat storage mode.

In 40 minutes: The combination of caffeine and aspartame creates a short, addictive high. Excitotoxins (a class of chemicals that overstimulate the brain’s neuron receptors) are released, which may exhaust your brain - especially if you drink diet soda on a regular basis.

In 60 minutes and beyond: Unlike the small amount of satisfaction you get from regular Coke, your body may still crave sweets. This makes y…
