DID YOU KNOW that children are the highest consumers of added sugar, even as high-sugar diets have been linked to health effects like obesity and heart disease? According to a study in Translational Psychiatry, researchers found that daily consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages during adolescence impairs performance on a learning and memory tasks during adulthood. Changes in the bacteria in the gut may be the key to the sugar-induced memory impairment. So not only is limiting sugar important, but maintaining optimal intestinal microbial balance is as well!

UPDATE: Our COVID-19 Vaccine Opinion This document was updated May 10th.
Virus Prevention And Treatment Vaccines will minimize COVID-19 related mortality and hospitalizations, but SARS-CoV-2 is not going away, as evidenced by its ever-mutating variants. Moreover, SARS-CoV-2 is not the only virus we fight. There are influenza (flu), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others. We highly recommend continuing your immune support. For more information, refer to our Prevent and Fight Viruses 2.0 Protocol.

EXCITING SKIN CANCER PREVENTIVE
Steve and Bonnie: Approximately three-quarters of dermatologist surgeons (Mohs surgeons), those who can perform awake procedures in their offices, have recommended nicotinamide (niacinamide) for prevention of skin cancer, especially keratinocyte carcinoma, in a survey of members of the American College of Mohs Surgeons.
Although nicotinamide, a vitamin B3 derivative, has been shown to reduce keratinocyte carcinoma, it is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration for chemoprevention.
According to the report of the results, published in Dermatologic Surgery, 76.9% of the surgeons said they recommended nicotinamide, and 20% said they had recommended nicotinamide to more than 100 patients in the past year. In addition, 45% of respondents reported patients who had been taking nicotinamide for 2 years or more.
Nicotinamide, 500 mg twice daily, the dose the surgeons prescribe, was found to be safe and effective in lowering the rates of new nonmelanoma skin cancers after 12 months.
We've had many clients ask us about nicotinamide recently because their skin doctors suggested it.
To get extra bang for your buck, a source called nicotinamide riboside has also been found to have anti-aging effects.
