A stoke occurs when a portion of the brain is deprived of oxygen. The 2 main types of strokes are ischemic caused by a blood or cholesterol blockage, and hemorrhagic caused by a ruptured blood vessel.
Scientists have identified a class of immune cells that flood the brain immediately after a stroke thereby causing inflammation and more neurological damage.
The immune system is the body’s natural defense system and it produces cells to fight off invading viruses and bacteria and help heal the body in the event of an injury. However, during a stroke this same mechanism kicks into place and as a result more brain damage occurs.
The researchers concluded that after a stroke the inflammation caused by the immune system leads to greater brain damage. As a result it appears prudent to be supplementing with anti-inflammatory nutrients to minimize brain damage in the event of a stroke.
Vita Logic Anti-Inflammatory Formula is a synergistic blend of several nutrients including curcumin, bromelain and more which are proven to decrease inflammation. Inflammation is associated with Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Strokes, Premature Aging and other chronic diseases. Anti-Inflammatory Formula effectively reduces both local and systemic (widespread, internal) inflammation. It should be taken daily to treat or prevent inflammation.
Antacids Cause Hip Fractures
Even short term use of popular antacid medications, both over the counter and prescription, increase the risk of hip fractures. The researchers analyzed data on over 40,000 patients taking acid reducing medications. They noted that regardless of the type of medications, antacids blocked calcium absorption and subsequently increased the risk of osteoporosis.
The startling fact was that in individuals who took less than one pill a day this increased risk of hip fracture was present. Patients who took more than one pill a day had a 41% higher risk. It should be noted that these risks went up dramatically the longer a patient was on these medications. The medications studied included Nexium, Prilosec, Protonix and Aciphex.
People age 50-59 taking these medications for more than 2 years had the biggest increase in fracture risk. Clearly in the senior population at risk for osteoporosis, antacid medications should be avoided. If antacids are given, it is critically important that proper calcium supplementation be administered.
Vita Logic Osteo Protect and Osteo Protect Plus contain several sources of calcium, magnesium and other critical cofactors necessary for promoting good bone health. Clinical studies have demonstrated their ability to reverse Osteopenia (loss of bone mass) and Osteoporosis (holes in the bone). Osteo Protect Plus contains additional nutrients including Vitamin K-2 to assist in preventing calcium deposits in the soft tissues and arteries; this is for men and women over 50 as well as for cases of advanced bone or dental disease.
Natural Supplement Relieves Arthritis
Osteoarthritis (OA) causes disability and is a major public health concern. A recent study examined the effects of chondroitin on OA progression and symptoms.
This study was conducted on over 600 patients in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled fashion. Patients had knee x-rays at the start of the study and again at 12, 18, and 24 months. The results demonstrated long term use of chondroitin over two years can prevent joint structure degradation in patients with OA of the knee. In addition, this study showed there was a faster improvement regarding pain during the first year in the chondroitin group compared to the placebo. The study results were published recently in the medical journal, “Arthritis & Rheumatism”.
This study demonstrates the benefits of chondroitin in helping relieve symptoms of arthritis and prevents joint destruction.
Vita Logic Joint Formula is an excellent source of chondroitin, glucosamine and MSM which have been shown in studies to support good joint health and reduce the incidence and severity of arthritis. Joint Formula is an excellent, safe, natural supplement for anyone wishing to protect their joints. It is recommended for long term use to achieve optimum long term joint flexibility and mobility.
How Durable Is The Immune System?
In 1918, a flu virus spread across the world and killed close to 100 million people. It is estimated that everyone was exposed to the virus. Recently, researchers evaluated survivors of the 1918 flu. They were astounded to see that these survivors still had antibodies made by their immune system during the 1918 flu epidemic. The difference between who survived the flu and who died is strictly based on the individual’s immune system.
The immune system’s job is that anytime it is exposed to bacteria or viruses it should make natural antibodies to destroy the invading pathogen. It is incredible to think that the antibodies remained protecting these individuals for 90 years. It proves the theory that our immune system has remarkable durability and is certainly there to protect us.
Vita Logic’s Immune Formula is a synergistic blend of safe, natural herbs that nourish and fortify the immune system. In today’s times of stress, processed foods and diets which compromise the immune system, Immune Formula by Vita Logic is an excellent supplement for everyone to take. Immune Formula is not a stimulate but rather supports the Immune system and can be taken by anyone on steroids or suffering with an Autoimmune disorder.
Effective Treatment For Colds And Flu
Elderberry is a common, shrubby tree that produces white flowers in early summer. In Colonial America, elderberry was called “the country medicine chest” because of its many uses. New evidence has concluded that elderberries have tremendous benefits in fighting flu and other similar viruses. Elderberry is a natural support for the immune system and contains concentrated amounts of Vitamins A, B and C and flavonoids which provide antiviral properties. Elderberry use as a flu remedy dates back to ancient Roman times.
Vita Logic’s Cold C with Echinacea can be considered as a natural flu shot or natural antibiotic. It contains vitamin C along with bioflavonoids, which are the activators of vitamin C. It also contains zinc, two separate strains of echinacea, as well as elderberry. Cold C with Echinacea has been shown to decrease the frequency of colds and flu as well as the duration and severity. Cold C with Echinacea by Vita Logic should be in everyone’s natural medicine closet.
