Dear Valued Subscriber,    


Did you know that a study in the April issue of American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that a component of black tea solids, other than caffeine, can positively influence the rate of blood pressure variation during nighttime. Thus, small dietary changes have the potential to significantly influence the rate of blood pressure variation


Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky

Your participation in our Spring Cleanse Challenge made it happen!


"Hello Ms. Minsky,


On behalf of all of us here at Playworks Metro Boston, as well as 15,000 children across the city, thank you for your recent donation.


We recently came across your post on twitter and facebook regarding the "Spring Cleanse Challenge" and we appreciate your generosity. Our respective missions of helping children live healthy lives truly intersect and we look forward to staying in touch. If you ever want to see the program in action, we'd be happy to put you in touch with our program team in the Chicago Public Schools.

Best regards and play on!

Herb Shows Promise for Sexual Dysfunction.
Korean Ginseng May Be ED Alternative. 
Ginseng is beneficial for many aspects of human physiology, including sexual function. In a study published in the May issue of International Journal of Impotence Research, researchers evaluated the efficacy and safety of an extract of ginseng berry, which has a ginsenoside profile distinct from other parts of the plant, on sexual function in men with erectile dysfunction. 
Men with mild-to-moderate ED participated in a randomized, double-blind, parallel, placebo-controlled clinical study. They were administered 4 tablets of either standardized Korean ginseng berry (SKGB, 350 mg ginseng berry extract per tablet), or placebo, daily, for 8 weeks. Efficacy was assessed with the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF)-15 and premature ejaculation diagnostic tool (PEDT) at the end of the 4th and 8th week.
The total and each of the individual domain scores of IIEF-15 increased significantly in the SKGB by the 8th week. The erectile function domain of IIEF changed slightly in the SKGB group by the 8th week. In addition, PEDT scores significantly improved in the SKGB group after 4 and 8 weeks of treatment. Safety markers including hormone and lipid in the blood were assessed at the end of the 4th and 8th week and they remained unchanged. 
Oral administration of the Korean Ginseng Berry extract improved all domains of sexual function. The researchers suggest that it can be used as an alternative medicine to improve sexual life in men with sexual dysfunction.

EPIC BAR: Perfectly Balanced Snack Bars

EPICBarFor those of you who know us well, we have never been big fans of energy and snack bars. Admittedly, they are sometimes a necessary evil. 


We are happy to say that we have found a product that not only has real ingredients, but is balanced with lean protein, healthy fat, and low carb.




EPIC Bar comes in bison, beef, and turkey flavors. We like the bison and turkey the best. The bison is grass-fed, the beef is organic, and the turkey is humanely raised without antibiotics or hormones.


Go to to find them in your area or you can order them from our office (stop in or call; not available at our website yet).
