DID YOU KNOW that a study from this month's Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine investigated the association between regular consumption of glucosamine/chondroitin supplements and overall and cardiovascular (CVD) mortality in a national sample of almost 17,000 US adults? Regularly consumption of glucosamine/chondroitin seemed to be significantly associated with lower overall and cardiovascular mortality. Given the strength of the association, a 27% lower likelihood of overall mortality and a 58% lower likelihood of cardiovascular death, the authors recommend randomized trials. YEAR-END SALE!

3 PILLARS OF MENTAL HEALTH
Steve and Bonnie:Getting good quality sleep, exercise, and eating more raw fruits and vegetables predicts better mental health and well-being in young adults, according to a study in Frontiers in Psychology.
More than 1100 young adults from New Zealand and the United States were surveyed about their sleep, physical activity, diet, and mental health. Interestingly, the research team found sleep quality, rather than sleep quantity, was the strongest predictor of mental health and well-being.
This is surprising because sleep recommendations predominantly focus on quantity rather than quality. While too little sleep and too much sleep were associated with higher depressive symptoms and lower well-being, sleep quality significantly outranked sleep quantity.
Along with quality sleep, exercising, and eating at least five raw fruits and vegetables daily were three modifiable behaviors which correlated with better mental health and well-being in young adults.
