Dear Valued Subscriber,   


Did you know that probiotics, especially the lactobacillus and bifidobacterium species, can reduce allergic rhinitis? Being that we are in the height of the tree, mold, and grass season, we suggest doubling your dosage until the height of the season subsides.

Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


Mineral Douses Inflammatory Flames
Magnesium Lowers CRP.

An exciting study in the February issue of European Journal of Clinical Nutritionindicates that magnesium deficiency increases C-Reactive Protein (CRP).  CRP is a serum marker used to gauge one's inflammation.


The researchers state that inadequate magnesium intake depletes the extracellular magnesium ion and consequently leads to the activation of inflammatory macrophages and influx of calcium ions into cells. The increased calcium level in the cells causes whatever magnesium is still there to try to block the influx of calcium ion, which leads to more inflammation.


The researchers summarize the study by saying: "The results suggest that the potential beneficial effect of magnesium intake on the risk of chronic diseases may be, at least in part, explained by inhibiting inflammation. Because inflammation is a risk factor of various chronic diseases, increasing magnesium intake is certainly of great public health significance."


Bonnie: Music to my ears!
