Speaking of what’s old being new again, industrial hemp is in the limelight these days, with politicians, farmers, hemp manufacturers, grassroots activists, and advocates working to get its cultivation legalized on the federal level. While early settlers put the hemp plant to great use—making clothing, paper, ropes, and sails from its fiber—the nonpsychoactive plant got banned along with marijuana during Prohibition. Americans still use and enjoy many hemp products, but they’re mostly made from imported hemp. Adding to the interest in this versatile plant are the many ways its natural compounds benefit the body.

Is Medical-Grade Liquid Collagen Better For You? Yes. Learn why it’s the #1 choice of doctors and hospitals for fat loss, more energy, joint support, and better hair, skin and nails...
t’s easy to find a collagen product. It’s not easy to know if it’ll actually work. Dozens of collagen products have flooded the market in every form, flavor, and at every price imaginable. So, when choosing one, how can you be sure you’re making the right decision? With over 35 years of medical use, doctors have done your homework for you...
The Collagen Doctors Recommend to Doctors
With over 102 million doses and rising, doctors and hospitals remain steadfast in their commitment to liquid Type 1,
enzymatically hydrolyzed, collagen peptides (found in Health Direct’s AminoSculpt). This true Medical-Grade Collagen™ is considered the “Gold Standard” by the medical community. Here’s why...
Proven Medical Use
FIRST, these liquid peptides have been used by over 4,700 physicians, clinics, hospitals and health professionals for over 35 years. They’re preferred because they have provided consistent results for decades with a proven safety record, even when used by patients with serious health problems.
Science Backs Type 1 Collagen
SECOND, these liquid peptides contain pure Type 1 collagen. While there are 28 different types of collagen in the body, 90% of your body’s collagen is Type 1. Plus, the weight of published scientific research supports Type 1 collagen, making it a solid choice (see benefits in the graphic below). Type 2 collagen is good for healthy cartilage (and has some effects on skin) but lacks many benefits of Type 1 collagen. Newer fad products contain rarer forms of collagen such as Types 3, 5, or 10. While these additional types

“BEAUTIFIES Hair, Skin, & Nails...”
“BURNS Fat, SHAPES The Body...”
hile many hospitals use AminoSculpt’s liquid Type 1 collagen peptides for skin repair, they also have beauty and personal care benefits. 90% of your hair, skin, and nails are Type 1 collagen. Therefore, people typically notice better skin softness, hydration, tone, and appearance, as well as improved growth and quality of their hair and nails. *
s we age, we gain fat and lose muscle. High doses of liquid Type 1 collagen peptides help stop this by preserving and building lean muscle. That way, you can keep a firmer, more shapely body for longer. This is why bariatric weight loss clinics have long recommended AminoSculpt’s medical-grade liquid collagen peptides as part of their programs.*
“SUPPORTS Joints, Bones, & Even Sleep...”
ype 1 collagen is a major component of ligaments, tendons and bones. Collagen’s exclusive amino acid, Hydroxyproline, plays a primary role in the structure and maintenance of bones and connective tissues. Plus, collagen’s most abundant amino acid, Glycine, is clinically shown to improve sleep when taken at bedtime. User’s of AminoSculpt’s liquid collagen peptides typically report deeper sleep and waking up

“IMPROVES Recovery & Wound Care...”
ollagen contains high amounts of high-nitrogen amino acids that build and repair the body (300400% more Arginine and Glycine than whey and other proteins). A published clinical trial shows that AminoSculpt’s medical-grade liquid collagen peptides perform FIVE TIMES GREATER than whey protein for improving wound and tissue repair. Also, recent studies show that supplementing with Type 1 collagen peptides before exercise can help decrease your likelihood of injury.*

Potassium-rich foods, such as bananas and avocados, appear to help prevent hardening of the arteries. A 2017 study found that participants who were deficient in potassium had stiffer arteries compared to those who ate a sufficient amount of the mineral. Arterial stiffness is a contributing factor to heart disease and other health issues. SOURCE “A Need for Bananas? Dietary Potassium Regulates Calcification of Arteries,” University of Alabama at Birmingham, 10/5/17
MUSHROOMS ON THE DOUBLE Mushrooms offer a double boost of nutrients that may slow the aging process, according to researchers from Penn State University. The antioxidants ergothioneine and glutathione appear to help protect against oxidative stress, which occurs when the body uses food to produce energy. “What we found is that, without a doubt, mushrooms are the highest dietary source of these two antioxidants . . . and that some types are really packed with both of them,” said researcher Robert Beelman, PhD. Porcini mushrooms ranked highest for content of the two antioxidants. White button mushrooms and other common types had smaller amounts of the substances, but more than most foods. Dr. Bellman noted that countries that have more ergothioneine in the di10 tasteforlife

LOW CALCIUM LEVELS linked to cardiac arrest Mayo Clinic researchers have found that having lower levels of calcium in the blood raises the risk of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). They concluded that further study is needed to determine whether higher calcium intake through diet or supplements would lower the risk. “Although our findings may not be ready for routine use in patients at this time, they are a step toward the goal of improving patient care by better prediction of risk,” said lead author Hirad Yarmohammadi, MD. SCA is fatal in more than 90 percent of cases. A majority of victims have no clinical history of heart disease, and many would not be considered high risk. Calcium levels are easily monitored and may prove to be a good indicator. SOURCE “Low Serum Calcium May Increase Risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest,” Elsevier, 10/5/17
DID YOU KNOW? Supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids was linked to a modest reduction in cardiac death in a recent study. Researchers analyzed the results of 14 randomized, controlled trials in which eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) were administered to patients for at least six months. The best results were seen in trials using more than 1 gram per day. The average risk reduction was about 8 percent. “It’s important to note that these results align with the conclusions in the recent science advisory from the American Heart Association, which states that EPA and DHA omega-3 treatment ‘is reasonable’ for secondary prevention of coronary heart disease and sudden cardiac death,” said lead author Kevin Maki, PhD.

SAY YES to yogurt Yogurt appears to lower the risks for heart attacks and stroke in people with high blood pressure. Eating more than two servings per week reduced the risks by about 20 percent when included in a healthy diet. Nearly 75,000 adults were tracked for up to 30 years as part of two comprehensive health studies. “Our results provide important new evidence that yogurt may benefit heart health alone or as a consistent part of a diet rich in fiber-rich fruits, vegetables, and whole grains,” said author Justin Buendia, PhD, of the Boston University School of Medicine.

BOOST JOINT HEALTH An extract of French maritime pine bark may provide joint health benefits, according to recent research. Patients with severe osteoarthritis of the knee were given 200 milligrams per day of the supplement (known as Pycnogenol) or a placebo for three weeks prior to surgery. The surgery found higher levels of polyphenols in the synovial fluid of the Pycnogenol group. “This is the first evidence that polyphenols distribute into the synovial fluid of patients with osteoarthritis,” wrote the authors, who concluded that the findings support previous studies on the reported joint benefits of the supplement.

Mulek, et al., Nutrients, 4/17
It’s a common belief that joints tend to ache more in rainy weather. But that wisdom appears to be faulty. “No matter how we analyzed it, we didn’t see a relationship,” said Anupam Jena, MD, a professor at Harvard Medical School. His team looked at data from more than 1.5 million older adults and found no connection between joint pain and rainy weather. But Dr. Jena did not rule out a possible link between “extreme weather”—very cold or very hot—and increased joint pain.

DRINK YOUR TURMERIC EXPLORE THE HEALTH BENEFITS—AND GREAT TASTE—OF GOLDEN MILK TURMERIC’S TAKEN OVER THE HEALTH HEADLINES BY STORM. THIS BRIGHT GOLDEN SPICE, A STAPLE IN INDIAN CUISINE, CONTAINS A POWERFUL ACTIVE INGREDIENT CALLED CURCUMIN. CURCUMIN ACTS AS AN ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTIOXIDANT, ANTIVIRAL, AND ANTIBACTERIAL, AND MAY EVEN HELP FIGHT CANCER. STUDIES HAVE SUGGESTED IT MAY HELP ALLEVIATE CONDITIONS AS DIVERSE AS DEPRESSION AND PMS. Fortunately, there are many ways to incorporate turmeric into your diet. You can add turmeric powder or fresh turmeric root to your cooking or take curcumin as a supplement. A popular way to get your daily dose is to drink turmeric milk, which is also called golden milk. Golden milk has a long history in Ayurveda—the holistic health system originating in India—where it is called haldi doodh. This warming golden beverage typically combines turmeric with other spices, a natural sweetener, and milk (either dairy or nondairy).
DIY While an array of golden milk products exist on the market, making your own delicious turmeric milk is easy. In a pot, add a couple cups of the milk of your choice (cow’s, coconut, cashew, almond, etc.) and bring to a simmer. Add 1 teaspoon of ground turmeric as well as complementary warming spices. Possibilities include cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and clove. Experiment with the spices. You might want to add a teaspoon of ground ginger but find that a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon or just a pinch of clove or nutmeg suits your tastes. Add a pinch of black pepper as the piperine in black pepper enhances the bioavailability of curcumin and helps your body reap its health benefits. Some people add a tablespoon of virgin coconut oil as well. Mix in a natural sweetener like honey or maple syrup, or a dash of vanilla extract. Whisk until everything is combined. Taste and add extra sweetener if you like. The milk and spices can also be combined in a blender before heating for a smoother texture. Enjoy as an alternative to coffee in the morning or as a soothing bedtime beverage. You can also allow your drink to cool, add ice cubes, and drink it like an iced chai. Enjoy!

Outfit your grill with tongs, a wire grill brush, a basting brush, a grill spatula, and grill gloves. When it comes to oiling the grill, you have different options: You could use a tightly folded-up paper towel dipped in oil and held with a pair of tongs. You could also use an old, clean white cotton towel or washcloth cut into three-inch strips, rolled up, and tied at the ends with butcher’s string. Or use an onion or lemon that’s been cut in half crosswise and dipped in oil. Whichever method you choose, be sure to thoroughly rub the grill grate. You can also just brush the food with oil before it hits the grill. Always cook food to its required internal temperature. An instant-read thermometer is a must for making sure items are thoroughly cooked. When you’re done with the grill, brush or scrape the grill grate. Get grilling season started with the following recipes. They’re full of flavor and fresh seasonal ingredients.

5/8/18 11:50 AM
For the Grill Vegetable oil for oiling grill grate and basting cheese 4 slices (each 1 inch thick) fresh red or yellow watermelon (preferably seedless) 1 chunk (8 oz) queso fresco, blotted dry For the Ginger-Lime Dressing 2 limes, halved crosswise 2 Tbsp honey 2 Tbsp minced candied ginger N c vegetable oil Coarse salt (sea or kosher) and freshly ground black pepper
1. Set up your grill for direct grilling and heat to High. Ideally, you’ll be working over a wood or wood-enhanced fire. If using a charcoal grill, add optional wood chunks or chips to the fire. If using a gas grill, place optional wood chunks under the grate directly over one of the burners to generate wood smoke. Brush or scrape grill grate clean and oil it well. 2. Arrange watermelon slices on grill and grill until singed and grill-marked on both sides, but still raw in center, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Use a large spatula and tongs to turn. Lightly brush cheese with oil on both sides and grill until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. While you’re at it, grill lime halves for dressing, cut sides down, until darkly browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer watermelon, cheese, and limes to a wire rack to cool. 3. Make dressing: Squeeze juice from grilled limes into a large mixing bowl. Whisk in honey, candied ginger, the N cup of vegetable oil, and salt and pepper. 4. Cut watermelon into 1-inch squares (discard rind and any seeds). Add watermelon to bowl with dressing. Add arugula and mint. Crumble in grilled cheese. Gently toss ingredients to mix. Sprinkle candied nuts on top and serve at once.
To Finish the Salad 1 bunch baby arugula, rinsed and spun dry N c thinly slivered fresh mint K c chopped candied pecans or walnuts
Kitchen Note: Queso fresco (“fresh cheese” literally) is a mild sweet-salty cheese from Mexico and Central America. Look for it in the dairy section of most markets. If you can’t find it, use either halloumi or feta. This recipe can be prepared over a charcoal, wood, or gas grill.
1. Make salmoriglio: Place parsley, basil, mint, capers, olives, and red pepper flakes in a food processor and finely chop. With blade running, gradually add oil. Work in lemon zest, lemon juice, water, and salt and pepper to taste. Salmoriglio should be thin enough to pour.
L c fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, washed and shaken dry L c fresh basil leaves, washed and shaken dry L c fresh mint leaves (or more basil), washed and shaken dry 2 Tbsp capers 8 pitted green or black olives K tsp hot red pepper flakes, or to taste M c extra-virgin olive oil K tsp finely grated fresh lemon zest Juice of 1 lemon (about 3 Tbsp) L c water, or as needed Coarse salt (sea or kosher) and freshly ground black pepper 1K lb jumbo shrimp, cleaned and deveined

2. Thread shrimp onto soaked, flat bamboo skewers and arrange in a baking dish just large enough to hold them. Pour half of salmoriglio over shrimp, turning kebabs to coat both sides. Marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour. 3. Set up your grill for direct grilling and heat to High. Brush or scrape grill grate clean and oil it well. Grill shrimp until browned and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side, 4 to 6 minutes in all. Serve with remaining salmoriglio on the side.

Kitchen Note: This dish features a condiment that may be new to you—a Sicilian olive, caper, parsley, basil, and mint sauce called salmoriglio. (Think of it as Sicilian chimichurri.) You use half the sauce as a marinade and serve the remainder on the side.

Jason Mitchell, ND: If you follow what some companies are suggesting, you would think that more billions are better, but, in fact, research suggests it is not necessary to take more.

digestion? Have you heard a lot about the benefits of probiotics but are not sure how to choose a quality product? Do you have specific conditions you are hoping to get help with? You have questions, we have answers.
Aileen Green: Many manufacturers promise high CFU counts, but on closer inspection it transpires they are only guaranteed at the time of manufacture and may be significantly less by the time you take the product. More reliable products are those that guarantee CFU counts to the expiration of a productâ€™s shelf-life. Some studies show benefits with doses as low as 100 million to 1 billion CFU a day. Kiran Krishnan: The focus should be on the quality of the strain, not the quantity of cells. Studies on certain bacillus strains (Bacillus indicus HU36 and Bacillus subtillis HU58) have shown a 30 percent favorable shift in the microbiome with only 3 billion CFUs per day.

tfl: How does a consumer know if a product will be able to survive stomach acid? KK: A sk for a gastric survivability study. If companies do not proudly display that their product has been tested by an independent third party lab for gastric survival, there is no reason to believe the product will survive passage through the stomach.
tfl: Should a consumer buy a probiotic product that contains more than one strain of bacteria? AG: With over 500 different species of microflora in a healthy gut, it stands to reason that using a multistrain and multispecies product would be advantageous. There is more evidence for multistrains being more effective than single strains. Strains should be clearly identified on products.
tfl: Which strains are particularly helpful for certain conditions? AG: Certain groups of the population may benefit from different strains. For example, babies tend to require more Bifidobacterium, whereas women suffering from UTIs or thrush are likely to benefit from Lactobacilli species. Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Streptococcus, and Bacillus are some of the most well-studied families of bacteria.

dysbiosis, reducing intestinal inflammation, and rebuilding the mucosal lining of the intestines. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in the Journal of Gastrointestinal Pathophysiology (8/17) showed that a unique, spore-based formulation containing Bacillus subtilis HU58 and Bacillus indicus HU36 was able to significantly reduce leaky gut, gut inflammation, and markers of mucosal dysfunction in just 30 days. Bacillus subtilis HU58 can compete with unfavorable bacteria while improving the growth of favorable bacteria. The unique Bacillus indicus HU36 strain is a carotenoid-rich strain that produces high levels of antioxidants in the gut lining, thereby supporting lower inflammation. Researchers believe that the HU36 strain—which produces antioxidants in the intestines where they are readily absorbed—was the key to the leaky gut findings.
CFU: Colony forming units—the number of viable bacteria or fungal cells in a sample. Microbiome: A community of micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses. The human microbiome encompasses the collection of microorganisms living in or on the human body and the gut microbiome are those micro-organisms that reside in the digestive tract.
tfl: Shelf stable or refrigerated? JM: Shelf stable simply means the probiotic bacteria have been studied to be relatively stable at room temperature. Probiotic bacteria do not like large deviations in temperature as this may cause die-off. Going from a really cold environment (the refrigerator) to a warm or hot environment (your car) and back to a refrigerator may cause a greater element of instability for probiotics than if they simply stayed at a more constant state.

SMART SUPPLEMENTS BY MARIA NOËL GROVES, RH (AHG)
PROSTATE HEALTH DIET AND LIFESTYLE TWEAKS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE AS THEY GET OLDER, MEN BECOME MORE AWARE—OFTEN PAINFULLY SO—OF THE PROSTATE GLAND. THIS SQUISHY GLAND THE SIZE OF A PING-PONG BALL SUPPLIES SEMINAL FLUID FOR HEALTHY SPERM PRODUCTION AND REPRODUCTIVE FUNCTION. The gland may be prone to age-related problems, but a healthy diet, lifestyle, and supplements will help maintain a better state of prostate vitality.
may be beneficial, excess of certain nutrients— including calcium, folate, and zinc—may increase your risk of prostate cancer.
Adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle routine cuts your risk of prostate enlargement, prostatitis (inflammation), and cancer. Choose a plant-rich Mediterranean-style diet and eat wild-caught fatty fish such as salmon and sardines. Exercise regularly, avoid smoking, reduce inflammation, limit alcohol consumption, and get regular screenings. Keep in mind that while supplements
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) occurs when the prostate gland becomes enlarged, which puts pressure on the bladder and urethra and causes difficult and painful urination and other lower urinary tract symptoms. BPH prevalence rises after age 40 due to hormonal shifts of testosterone into a less helpful form called DHT (dihydrotestosterone). BPH affects 70 percent of US men ages 60 to 69 and 80 percent of those over age 70. BPH can often be managed with natural approaches. Prostatitis and prostate cancer demand medical attention, but natural approaches reduce your risk and may help alongside conventional care.
Core Prostate Remedies Saw palmetto berry, which seems to reduce inflammation and block the conversion of testosterone into DHT, is well researched for BHP with promising but mixed results. Evidence strongly suggests that, as opposed to a solo approach, saw palmetto works better in combination with other herbs and nutrients, such as selenium, lyocopene, nettle root, and pumpkin seed oil. Eating pumpkin or squash seeds (also called pepitas) offers the benefits of both the seed oil and their zinc content, which support bladder and prostate health. The antioxidant and antiinflammatory red carotenoid pigment lycopene helps decrease risk of prostate cancer and prostate inflammation. The best food forms of lycopene include tomato sauce and tomato paste.
Choose the Best Nutrients A good balance of zinc, selenium, and omega 3 fatty acids from food or supplements will help protect you from prostate cancer, but the dose and quality matter greatly as they can also increase your risk. For zinc, aim for 10 to 15 milligrams (mg) daily. High doses of zinc—more than 100 mg a day—

increase the risk for prostate cancer more than twofold. Be sure your omega-3 fish or flax oil supplements aren’t rancid. Choose a quality brand that tests for purity and keep the open bottle refrigerated. A strong fishy odor can indicate rancidity. Antioxidants tend to work best as a team. For supplements like lycopene, selenium, and vitamin E, look for modest-dose combination blends from natural and more foodlike forms rather than the cheapest, highest-dose, single-shot pill. For example, choose high selenium yeast and natural d-alpha vitamin E (not dl alpha vitamin E), preferably with mixed tocopherols.
Reduce Inflammation Inflammation management will benefit your entire body and support your ability to fend off prostate cancer and prostatitis. Along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, consider turmeric, ginger, green tea, rosemary, and pomegranate juice. The stress-relieving adaptogen longevity tonics holy basil and ashwagandha also decrease inflammation. Consider taking several anti-inflammatory herbs in a blend or incorporated into a broader men’s health formula.

BACK TO WHERE WE STARTED JUNE 4-10 MARKS THE NINTH ANNUAL HEMP HISTORY WEEK AMERICA HAS A LONG HISTORY WITH HEMP. SETTLERS BEGAN CULTIVATING IT IN THE 1600S, AND HEMP FIBER WAS USED TO MAKE CLOTHING, ROPE, THREAD, PAPER, AND SAILS. ALTHOUGH HEMP CAN’T GET YOU HIGH, IT WAS LUMPED IN WITH MARIJUANA AND BANNED DURING PROHIBITION. Since then, American consumers have continued to have access to a wide variety of hemp products, including food and personal care products, supplements, and clothing, but those items are mostly made from imported hemp. Currently, the plant can be grown in the US primarily for research purposes and pilot programs. The Hemp Farming Act of 2018, introduced April 12 by Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, would remove hemp from the federal list of controlled substances, allowing it to be freely grown again as an agricultural commodity. This action is just one of the latest taken by politicians, farmers, grassroots organizers, hemp product makers, and advocates to change federal policy on industrial hemp.
A Closer Look Both industrial hemp and marijuana belong to the same plant genus, cannabis. Both contain cannabinoids, which are chemical compounds that support the body’s endocannabinoid system—a biochemical communication system important in regulating physiology and mood.
Receptors in the body respond to cannabis, and the human body produces its own cannabinoid compounds that can bind to the receptors and release their properties. This has physiological effects on cognition and memory, nausea and vomiting, inflammation, and more. A primary difference between marijuana and industrial hemp is that marijuana contains a significant amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical compound that can get you stoned. While hemp contains a trace of THC, you can’t get high from it. Hemp does contain high levels of another cannabinoid, an nonpsychoactive ingredient called cannabidiol, or CBD. CBD is showing pharmaceutical value. At presstime, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was scheduled to vote on whether to approve an epilepsy drug that would be the first plant-derived cannabidiol prescription medicine in the US. Drugs containing CBD are used in dozens of countries to treat certain multiple sclerosis symptoms. Until now, the FDA has approved synthetic versions of cannabinoid chemicals only for other purposes, such as cancer pain relief. In addition to its antiseizure and pain-relieving properties, cannabidiol “offers promise as a prototype for anti-inflammatory drug development,” according to a review of studies that looked at its effects on inflammation.

HEALING HERBS BY JANE EKLUND
YOUR ACTION PLAN FOR PAINFUL JOINTS DISCOVER NATURE’S REMEDIES WHETHER IT’S DUE TO ILLNESS OR INJURY, WHETHER IT’S A CHRONIC CONDITION OR A TEMPORARY INCONVENIENCE, JOINT PAIN DOESN’T JUST HURT, IT ALSO MAKES IT HARD TO MOVE AROUND AND TO LIVE YOUR LIFE. Your healthcare practitioner can discuss the range of treatment options available. They include prescription and over-the-counter medications, physical therapy, icing and elevating the joint, and losing weight. A number of herbal remedies have also been used to treat joint pain or supplement conventional treatment. Here are a few to consider.
Aloe Vera Known for its effectiveness as a topical agent to treat burns and skin conditions, aloe vera may also be taken orally for osteoarthritis, and has for centuries been used to treat arthritis. For people taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for arthritis or other joint pain, aloe vera has the potential for delivering a one-two punch: While its antiinflammatory properties address inflamed joints, it also works to soothe stomach and gut irritation. You can find it in a gel or juice form for internal consumption.
Boswellia An extract made from the resin of a tree found in India, the Middle East, and North Africa, boswellia is also known as Indian frankincense. It’s effective in treating inflammation and pain caused by osteoarthritis and potentially helpful for rheumatoid arthritis. An anti-inflammatory, boswellia has been shown in studies to work like NSAIDs but without stomach irritation. You can find it in capsule and tablet form.
Capsaicin The stuff that makes chili peppers hot, capsaicin, applied topically, is a proven therapy for joint pain. It interferes with pain signals and should be used regularly for best effects. Capsaicin is sold in cream, gel, or patch form. The Arthritis Foundation suggests applying it three times a day— but not near your eyes or on sensitive skin.
Flaxseed Flaxseed can be used to lubricate joints and decrease joint pain and stiffness. More studies are needed to determine whether it is an effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, but it is a good source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, particularly alpha linolenic acid (ALA), giving it anti-inflammatory properties. It comes as a capsule or oil, or in whole or ground seeds. It can interact with some medications, so check with your healthcare practitioner before adding it to your diet.

white—make it an ideal drink for people with joint problems. The polyphenol epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG) found in green tea makes that particular variety the top choice. Research has shown that EGCG can also help maintain bone and cartilage.
Turmeric Turmeric and curcumin (its active ingredient) have been used in traditional medicine to treat arthritis. Research has shown it to be an anti-inflammatory that modifies immune system response. One study found that curcumin lessened pain and increased movement in people with osteoarthritis of the knee, and another found that in rheumatoid arthritis patients, a curcumin product reduced pain and swelling more than an NSAID. Avoid curcumin if you are on a blood thinner or are pregnant.

SAVE YOUR SKIN!
THE ROLE OF COLLAGEN
IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT THE WORD “COLLAGEN” COMES FROM THE GREEK WORD FOR GLUE. THIS STRUCTURAL PROTEIN DOES EXACTLY THAT, KEEPING THE BODY’S CONNECTIVE TISSUE TOGETHER AND HEALTHY. IT’S THE BUILDING BLOCK OF SKIN. With age, the body’s production of collagen naturally starts to decline, and damage starts to become noticeable around age 30. Smoking and sun exposure further accelerate the breakdown of collagen, contributing to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagginess. In women, skin collagen is believed to decrease by 30 percent in the first five years after menopause, partly due to a decrease in estrogen, a hormone with a positive effect on collagen production. Research indicates there are proactive steps we can take to combat our loss of collagen and maintain our skin’s structural integrity. One approach is to increase our collagen consumption through supplements. In various doubleblind, placebo-controlled trials, middle-aged women who took either 2.5 grams or 5 grams of collagen hydrolysate once daily for eight weeks experienced significantly improved skin elasticity and smoothness compared to women taking placebos.
Collagen Generation Deficiency in the mineral silicon also decreases collagen synthesis in the body. “Many factors potentially can contribute to silicon deficiency,” says Richard Passwater, Jr., product education director for Bio Minerals, the maker of BioSil, a specialty line from Natural Factors. He points to the typical American diet as well as modern food processing techniques as major culprits. “Silicon content tends to be much higher in fibrous plant-based foods than in animal-based foods,” Passwater says. “The silicon content in plant-based foods tends to be highest in the grain hulls and husks. Modern food processing techniques often remove these fiber-containing parts, reducing the silicon content in the process.” Weakened stomach acid caused by aging, stress, and the use of antacids also interferes with the conversion of silicon into its bioavailable form of orthosilicic acid. “In my opinion, the typical age-related decrease in silicon absorption from the diet is a significant factor directly associated with the typical age-related decreases in collagen production,” he says. Research shows that supplementation with choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid (ch-OSA) stimulates the body’s production of collagen Type I—the type that makes up both skin and bones. In a randomized, double-blind, placebocontrolled study, 50 women with sun-damaged skin took either 10 milligrams of ch-OSA a day or a placebo for 20 weeks. Skin elasticity and firmness improved significantly for the women taking ch-OSA, as did the strength of their hair and nails. TFL

FIBER UP TO GET WEIGHT DOWN CONSIDER CLOSING YOUR “FIBER GAP.” IF YOU’RE LIKE MOST AMERICANS, YOU AREN’T GETTING ENOUGH FIBER AND WOULD BENEFIT FROM CLOSING THE GAP BETWEEN WHAT YOU GET AND WHAT YOU NEED. THE CURRENT DIETARY GUIDELINES FOR AMERICANS RECOMMEND THAT ADULT WOMEN CONSUME 25 GRAMS OF DAILY FIBER AND ADULT MEN AIM FOR 38 GRAMS. IN REALITY, MOST AMERICANS GET 15 GRAMS OF FIBER A DAY.
Fight Cravings with Fiber
You might be wondering: “What’s the big deal about falling short with fiber? Isn’t it just the indigestible parts of plants?” It’s true that your body doesn’t absorb fiber as it passes through your stomach and intestines, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t contribute to your health. Among the many benefits of increasing fiber intake—such as a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, and some forms of cancer—there’s the unexpected perk of a slimmer waistline. Fiber supports healthy weight in different ways. For starters, eating fiber-rich foods slows down how long it takes for foods to leave the stomach, so you feel full longer. Second, filling up on high-fiber foods means you’ll have less room for high-fat and highly caloric low-fiber foods.
When it comes to weight loss, some foods encourage cravings, while others fight them. Guess which category high-fiber foods are in? “High-fiber foods help prevent cravings from popping up in the first place. Think of dark, leafy greens (watercress, kale, and spinach), avocados, broccoli, celery, cucumbers, artichokes, peas, okra, squash, Brussels sprouts, red peppers, cabbage, cauliflower, and quinoa,” explains Daryl Gioffre, a board-certified chiropractor and author of the health book Get Off Your Acid ($17.99, Da Capo, 2018). “By increasing your fiber intake, you can crush food cravings that might otherwise derail a weight-loss program.” Research shows that people eating a high-fiber diet tend to have lower body weights. In one recent study, a group of people agreed to swap out their refined grains (that is, their low-fiber diet) with whole grains (high-fiber diet). After just six weeks of this dietary change, there was a clear difference between the groups, namely both weight loss and a lowering of body fat in the high-fiber folks.

MAKES EYES LOOK YOUNGER
Fiber Types There are two types of fiber, soluble and insoluble, with the difference being whether the fiber absorbs water or not. Soluble fiber can be found in oats, barley, legumes, psyllium, flax, apples, and citrus fruits. Whole grains, wheat bran, nuts, and vegetables are good sources of insoluble fiber. Both types of fiber are necessary and beneficial. If you wish to increase your fiber intake, do so gradually over a couple of weeks. A sudden surge in fiber intake can leave you bloated and gassy, so pace yourself. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids (at least eight glasses of water a day) when switching to a high-fiber diet, since fiber acts as a sponge to absorb water. Without enough water in your digestive tract, extra fiber can make stools hard and difficult to pass. Dr. Gioffre’s favorite way to fit in more fiber is with a morning smoothie. “Use a blender for this, and not a juicer, which removes the fiber. In blending, you use the whole food so both the insoluble fiber (pulp) and the soluble fiber remain in the smoothie. Load up the smoothie with fiber-rich foods such as kale, spinach, and pitted avocado to get in a full day’s serving of fiber,” he explains. TFL

MY TURN BY MICHAEL MIRER
BOY EATS BUG HOW A PLATE OF FRIED INSECTS CHANGED MY LIFE I’VE BEEN A VEGETARIAN FOR NEARLY 15 YEARS AND A VEGAN FOR THE PAST FIVE. MAKING ALLOWANCES FOR MISTAKEN ORDERS, ISSUES OF TRANSLATION, AND THE OCCASIONAL (IF SURPRISINGLY FREQUENT) MISUNDERSTANDING BY A SERVER OR CHEF OF JUST WHAT A VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN IS, I HAVE NOT EATEN MILK, PORK, CHEESE, OR BEEF. ONCE, HOWEVER, I INTENTIONALLY ATE BUGS. It needs to be said that I did so intentionally because, frankly, we’ve all eaten bugs. The FDA allows trace amounts of “insect fragments” into a variety of foods, provided they stay below prescribed limits. Chocolate is allowed up to 60 fragments per 100 grams; peanut butter 30 per 100 grams; and hops is allowed up to 2,500 aphids per 10 grams. Insects are key to certain food colorings, shellac, and other everyday items. Yet—in this part of the world at least—we can suffer this only if it’s unknown. Vegans will sometimes ask carnivores to imagine the face of the animal they are about to eat; it’s a blatant attempt to create an empathetic connection to something we too often think of as a mere object. If I asked you to look into your peanut butter and imagine the eyes of the insects, would it do anything but repulse you? What was I doing eating insects? I was visiting friends in college and Daniella Martin, an alum of the same school and author of Edible: An Adventure into the World of Eating Insects and the Last Great Hope to Save the Planet, had been invited to give a cooking demonstration on campus at the same time. It piqued my curiosity. I became a vegetarian because of a sense of moral need. Learning about the violence and pollution of industrial farming shocked and appalled me. In its indifference to the health and safety of the workers, livestock, and environment, it embodied everything I despised about the world.
This is why the insects intrigued me. Industrial farming manages to be at once a cruelly efficient and a suboptimal use of resources: Livestock emit large amounts of greenhouse gas, the waste and runoff of the farms can poison water supplies, and the abuse of antibiotics can lead to the proliferation of resistant forms of bacteria. Insect farming, according to its proponents, would reduce this waste and provide protein on the same scale with the bonus of avoiding the moral quandary of eating animals. Looking down at the fried crickets and grubs, however, I realized that I really just wanted to know if I could do it. One of my last meals before becoming a vegetarian involved a failed attempt to eat rabbit. It seemed an easy enough way to show my father I could be an adventurous eater, but when the plate arrived, all I could see was the shape of the body that looked to me like a cat—maybe my cat. I couldn’t do it and traded plates with him (pasta proved less problematic). With insects, the test was different. If eating them truly could “save the world,” shouldn’t I be able to do it? Well, reader, I did. It wasn’t bad. I even had seconds. Did I close my eyes each time I ate? Yes. Did it change my diet? Within six months I became a vegan and haven’t looked back. A mealworm does not—and maybe should not—evoke the sympathetic response of a rabbit, but the question remains the same. Would you eat it? Why? TFL www.tas teforl i fe.com

HEALTHY FAMILY BY JANE EKLUND AND KELLI ANN WILSON
SOOTHE THAT HEARTBURN YOU KNOW THE FEELING: THAT BURNING SENSATION THAT MOVES FROM YOUR STOMACH UP YOUR ESOPHAGUS, USUALLY AFTER EATING—AND OFTEN AFTER EATING SOMETHING YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE! BEND OVER OR LIE DOWN AND IT GETS WORSE. IT’S HEARTBURN, AN UNCOMFORTABLE MALADY THAT AFFECTS EVERYONE OCCASIONALLY. Heartburn is also called “acid reflux,” meaning stomach acid has backed up into the esophagus. Luckily, occasional heartburn can be managed with natural remedies and lifestyle changes.
❶ Eat slowly. ❷ Maintain a healthy weight. If you’re overweight, dropping about 10 pounds can help relieve pressure on your abdomen that may push acid into the esophagus.
❸ Anxiety can agitate the digestive system and make heartburn worse. De-stress with gentle exercise instead of alcohol or tobacco. Listen to music, get a massage, meditate, or take a walk.
❹ Drink herbal teas instead of caffeinated coffee and teas.
❺ Avoid tight-fitting clothing. ❻ Stop eating several hours before bedtime. ❼ Try eating smaller meals. ❽ If your heartburn comes at night, elevate the head of your bed or put a wedge between your mattress and box spring.
❶ Choose low-acid fruits and vegetables instead of items such as citrus fruits and tomato products.
❷ Avoid highly processed carbs. Choose whole-grain foods such as steel-cut oatmeal and brown rice.
❸ Avoid fatty, fried meats. Choose lean poultry and meats and enjoy fish that’s been grilled, poached, or baked.
❹ Common triggers can include chocolate, juice, carbonated
beverages, spicy foods, full-fat dairy products, and peppermint and spearmint.
❺ Some heartburn sufferers have found relief by drinking low-fat or fat-free milk, which may act as a buffer for stomach acid. And honey, which coats the esophagus, is a popular remedy for heartburn in Ayurvedic medicine. Get the benefits of both by mixing honey in milk.
❻ Some heartburn sufferers swear by taking one to two teaspoons a day of apple cider vinegar. It can be hard to swallow, though, so you may want to add it to a cup of tea that’s sweetened with honey.
Herbs & Supplements
❶ Sip chamomile tea. ❷ Herbal licorice and plant-based digestive enzymes are effective for heartburn. Take them in supplement form to help keep your digestive system running smoothly. Drink plenty of water with digestive enzyme supplements, and take them about 40 minutes before eating.
❸ Try drinking one or two ounces of aloe vera juice daily with a meal.
❹ Herbs and spices have been used for centuries to calm digestive discomfort. Among those that may soothe heartburn are turmeric with its active ingredient, curcumin—which the World Health Organization supports as a treatment for acid reflux.
❺ Slippery elm, available in lozenge, capsule, and tea form, provides a coating for the esophagus. TFL SELECTED SOURCES “Heartburn,” www.

What I Love about BioSil Scientifically Advanced Collagen Generator®†
“Clinically Proven for My SKIN, NAILS, and HAIR!” Nothing gives a better first impression than thick, luscious, radiant hair. For those up close moments, you want smooth, firm, glowing skin. And great looking nails are always a big plus. BioSil is clinically proven for all three. I love the results I see in my skin, hair, and nails!
“BioSil Is Vegan, Non-GMO, and Sustainably Sourced” I’m a vegetarian, and try to be a responsible steward of our planet. I love BioSil because it’s sustainably sourced, completely vegan, non-GMO, and contains no animal parts or sea organisms.
“BioSil Generates Collagen Naturally, with My Own DNA Fingerprint!’’ BioSil works completely naturally. BioSil activates the actual enzymes that generate collagen in humans. That way I know that the collagen has my own DNA fingerprint – and I love that!
“BioSil Gives Me the Power of Genuine Collagen-Generating Science” I love the fact that BioSil is formulated by medical researchers and is proven in bona fide double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials. That way, you know it works!
“With BioSil, I Regain Lost Collagen, Add New Collagen, and Protect My Existing Collagen’’ What good is generating collagen if you’re just going to lose it all over again!? That’s the reason I love how BioSil protects both my new and existing collagen. You will too!
