Dear Valued Subscriber,    


Did you know that seed and pesticide makers like BASF, DuPont, Bayer and Monsanto are investing heavily to develop natural products incorporating organisms like bacteria and tiny fungi, which executives say can help plants avert pests. Looks like the GMO fight is wearing them down.

NOW Egg White Protein Unflavored is in stock!

NOW OralBiotic with streptococcus salivarius is in stock. The probiotic lozenge 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!

If you, family, or friends are going to be here, make your appointment now with Bonnie so you can have everything ready to go.

Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


Lutein/Zeaxanthin Not Just for the Elderly
Part of the aging process involves the degeneration of the speed and precision with which nerves fire in the brain to process information, with this degeneration being seen even in young subjects.

A new study in PLoS One suggests that lutein and zeaxanthin, a class of antioxidants called carotenoids which are present in high amounts in the eye and brain and possess significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory functions helps preserve the ability of nerves to process input, even in young subjects.


The study involved healthy subjects between the ages of 18 and 32. They were given either a placebo or a mixed formulation containing zeaxanthin, lutein, and 190 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per day for four months. Before and after the study, researchers measured reaction time as well as a measure of reflex called "coincidence anticipation timing" where the subject presses a button in response to the illumination of an LED light presented at a random location along the linear light array. Finally, researchers measured the level of visual processing pigment in the eye called macular pigment.


In addition to increasing levels of macular pigment in the eye by 27.2% compared to a 7.2% decrease in the placebo group, the researchers also noted increased reaction time and anticipation timing.


Bonnie: The results are consistent with a role of lutein and zeaxanthin in visual processing speed and visual motor behavior. The fact that it may involve more fundamental changes to cellular connectivity even when tested on young, healthy individuals who tend to be at peak efficiency is exciting.
