Did you know that the leakier your gut, the higher your liver enzymes? Leaky gut allows more toxins into the bloodstream, thus affecting the liver more adversely.
You Won't Believe What B-Vitamins Can Do!
Sufficient Vit B Levels Counter Effects of Pesticide DDT!
New results from a Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health study that appeared in last month's American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that women who have adequate levels of B vitamins in their bodies are more likely to get and stay pregnant even when they also have high levels of the common pesticide DDT, known to have detrimental reproductive effects.

DDT can remain in the body and environment for decades and increase the risk of early miscarriage. According to the researchers, "this study tells us that improved nutrition may modify the toxic effects of DDT, by better preparing the body to cope with environmental toxins and stressors."


Bonnie: Specifically, in women with high DDT levels and vitamin B deficiencies, women were twice as likely to suffer a miscarriage before six weeks of gestation and took nearly twice as long to conceive in the first place.


An amazingly impactful study. Folks, if this does not show what vitamins are capable of, I don't what will. Yet, this does not even scratch the surface of the importance of B-vitamins for everything from proper detoxification to functional memory, coping with stress, digestion, and much more.

New for Cold & Flu Season
The probiotic strain streptococcus salivarius comes in a lozenge that colonizes the mouth, nose, and nasopharynx, crowding out pathogenic bacteria. It can prevent plaque, cavities, bad breath, ear infections, sore throats, colds, coughs, postnasal drip, and other sinus problems. It also tastes good!
Diabetes and Celiac Linked
More than one in twenty patients with type 1 diabetes have biopsy-verified celiac disease. This prevalence is high enough to motivate screening for celiac disease among all patients with type 1 diabetes, according to a study from the December issue of  Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics.
