According to research from Ohio State University, being stressed causes allergy attacks to be more severe and last longer. Researchers recruited volunteers with seasonal allergies to take part in evaluating the relationship of stress with allergies. The participants were required to participate in low stress activities and high stress activities on different days. Both before and after each activity, the researchers read the participants’ level of stress and anxiety and then pricked their skin with a standard allergen. They then measured the allergic response based on the level of stress they had undergone. In conclusion, the more anxious a person was after a high stress activity, the greater the reaction to the allergy skin prick.
The researchers speculate that stress hormones cause an elevation of inflammatory proteins from the immune system which contributes to the severity of the allergy attack and the duration. Typically many people do not associate stress and allergies. However, this study clearly demonstrates that stress makes allergies much worse. Therefore controlling stress is an important part to controlling seasonal allergies.
Allergy Formula by Vita Logic is a non-drowsy, herbal blend which provides immediate relief for the symptoms of allergies. Allergy Formula can safely be taken by adolescents and adults during the allergy season. This safe, natural supplement helps control both the histamine and inflammation responsible for all allergic reactions.
Vitamin D Levels Are Low In Patients With Rheumatic Disease
About three-quarters of patients with rheumatic diseases affecting the joints, muscles, bones, and tendons were found to have a Vitamin D deficiency. According to a recent study conducted in Ireland, low Vitamin D levels were found in 70% of the patients with rheumatic diseases. Furthermore, a severe Vitamin D deficiency was found in 26% of the people. This deficiency was the same for both young and older patients.
Vitamin D is best known for its role in maintaining healthy bones. Recent studies have revealed that high doses of Vitamin D will not only help bones but may effectively prevent a number of cancers including prostate, breast, lung, and colon as well as reduce the risk of heart attacks and heart failure.
Vitamin D is naturally synthesized by the skin after exposure to the sun. In addition for Vitamin D to be made, the Intestinal Tract, Liver and Kidneys all must work optimally. It is prudent to take a complete vitamin and mineral supplement with additional Vitamin D daily.

The Natural Flu Shot
A study found that taking mega-doses of vitamin C can effectively prevent the flu as well as relieve flu symptoms. The study involved over 700 people and demonstrated that those who took 1000 mg of vitamin C three times a day were 85% less likely to have flu or more likely to reduce flu symptoms. In addition, it was noted that when study subjects took 1000 mg of vitamin C hourly within the first hours of getting the flu and three times daily there after, their symptoms improved dramatically.
It has long been known that vitamin C boosts the immune system. It is also known that vitamin C by itself tends to be inert and inactive. Vitamin C is found in nature with the presence of bioflavonoids otherwise known as activators of vitamin C. It is important when looking to take vitamin C in supplement form that it is taken with the bioflavonoids. In addition, it was noted that the amount of vitamin C used in this study needed to be taken in supplement form because attaining this much vitamin?C through dietary means would be impossible.
Vita Logic Bio-C 1000 contains a full gram of vitamin C plus, Bioflavonoids, powerful antioxidants, including Quercetin, Hesperidin and Rutin. In nature, vitamin C always is present with these bioflavonoids; therefore, taking a supplement of vitamin C with bioflavonoids most closely mimics nature and eating fruits. Bio-C 1000 by Vita Logic is an excellent supplement for people wanting the benefits of vitamin C including reduced risk of Kidney Stones, Gout, Cancer and premature aging.
Vitamin Curbs Cancer
Vitamin C can help curb the growth of cancer cells. The role of vitamin C and cancer treatment has been the subject of debate for years. It has been observed that many individuals with cancer when consuming high doses of vitamin C report improved quality of life as well as reduction in tumor size. New research now looks specifically at cancers and discovered that tumors produce a protein called HIF-1 which allows them to thrive. When tumors have low vitamin C levels they produce more HIF-1.
These findings are significant as they show for the first time a direct relationship between HIF-1 and vitamin C levels in tumors and suggest therefore that it is beneficial for people with cancer to have more vitamin C. This was published in the prestigious medical journal, Cancer Research.
It is important to remember that vitamin C in nature always occurs with bioflavonoids.
These include hesperidin, lutein, quercetin and rosehips. Therefore when selecting a Vitamin C supplement it is important to always be sure it contains sufficient bioflavonoids.
Vita Logic Vitamin C-500 Complex contains 500 mg of vitamin C along with the bioflavonoids including rosehips. Bioflavonoids are considered to be the activators of vitamin C. Vitamin C-500 Complex is a safe, natural supplement for anyone wanting the benefits of additional vitamin C. With the necessary bioflavonoid activators, supplementation with vitamin C supports the immune system, slows the aging process, and decreases the incidences of Heart Disease, Stroke, Cancer, and more.
Soda Doubles The Risk Of Kidney Disease
Women who drink 24 ounces of soda everyday are twice as likely to develop kidney disease, according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
Albuminuria, otherwise known as albumin or protein in the urine, has long been known to be a definitive marker for detecting early kidney damage. Therefore, when albumin is found in urine, kidney damage is occurring long before a person may experience any symptoms. Albumin is often detected in a routine urinalysis.
The study concluded that women who drank two or more sodas in a day were 1.86 times more likely to have albuminuria. A typical can of soda is 12 ounces therefore two cans represent 24 ounces. Bottled soda is normally 20 ounces. Drinking soda is extremely unhealthy for many reasons but this study demonstrates it doesn’t require much to cause kidney damage.
Vita Logic Kidney Formula is a safe, natural supplement that nourishes and supports the kidneys. It contains organic cranberry extract and other herbs shown to be therapeutic for maintaining kidney and bladder health. Vita Logic Kidney Formula will protect a person’s kidneys and bladder and has no known side effects.
Liver Disease Increasing in Children
Scientists at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center have discovered that increased dietary consumption of fructose and trans fats significantly increase childhood obesity and also leads to fatty liver disease, resulting in scar tissue in the liver. Researchers looked at animal studies and found that over the course of six weeks, animals fed a diet rich in high fructose corn syrup and trans fat solids (those found in margarine) resulted in fatty liver disease which can lead to permanent liver damage.
Fructose consumption accounts for approximately 11% of the calories in the average American diet and has been linked to many health conditions including obesity, cardiovascular disease and now liver disease. Clearly the American diet is killing our children. While liver disease was once thought of as only occurring in adults, particularly those who consume excess alcohol or drugs, liver health has become a major concern for the youth population as well.
Vita Logic Liver Formula is a synergistic blend of herbs that research has shown helps cleanse, detoxify and repair the liver. Liver Formula should be routinely taken by anyone concerned about liver health.
Treating Parasites Naturally
According to the World Health Organization, 3.5 billion people suffer from some type of parasitic infection. Parasites are not simply worms but also include bacteria, viruses, yeasts, molds and fungi.
It is extremely easy to contract a parasite infection. It can be from water, improperly washed or undercooked food, transmission from pets, as well as contact with an infected person. In addition, persons taking antibiotics for another problem often can develop parasites because the normal, healthy intestinal bacteria are killed when taking an antibiotic.
Parasitic infections can present with a wide range of symptoms including gas, bloating, indigestion, and diarrhea, as well as sudden food cravings, weight gain, depression, memory loss, insomnia and hyperactivity. Since most doctors fail to look for parasites but rather will treat individual symptoms, getting rid of parasites is important.
Vita Logic Parasite Formula is an excellent cleanse for people concerned about parasites including bacteria, viruses, yeasts, molds, worms and any foreign invader. Parasite Formula is an excellent, natural cleanse that takes only 10 days which is the supply in one bottle and can be repeated as often as necessary.
Good Skin Begins Inside
Borage and flaxseed oil act internally to improve skin health. A recent study published in the Journal of Nutrition demonstrated that people taking borage oil for several weeks experienced 35% less reddening of the skin and ones taking flaxseed oil experienced 45% less. Researchers assigned 45 healthy, nonsmoking women to receive either a supplement of borage oil, flaxseed oil or a placebo. Researchers then continually irritated the skin causing inflammation and redness while applying a topical caustic agent. After 12 weeks they realized both groups enjoyed a significant decrease in skin roughness and scaling than at the beginning of the study, while no change was observed in the placebo group.
Borage and flaxseed oil are found in plants. Borage has more amounts of Omega-6 fatty acids while flaxseed has more Omega-3’s. This study clearly demonstrates supplements rich in the Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids protect the skin against irritation and help heal damaged skin.
Vita Logic EFA Formula is an excellent blend of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. EFA Formula should be taken by anyone wishing better skin health. This is doctor recommended for eczema, psoriasis, acne and dry skin.
