Dear Valued Subscriber,  


Did you know the FDA just approved a medical device to be worn like glasses for headaches? Cefaly is an external nerve simulator, with an adhesive electrode applied to the forehead to be worn 20 minutes per day.

Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


Olive Oil and Pollution
Like you needed another reason to love olive oil?

New research shows that olive oil produces cardiovascular effects that protect healthy people from exposure to particulate matter in the air.


"For people living in areas with pollution levels above the EPA standard, something very easy, like a dietary supplement, could offer some protection," said Haiyan Tong, MD, PhD, research biologist at the US Environmental Protection Agency. She presented the research at the American Thoracic Society 2014 International Conference.


Subjects with no evidence of cardiovascular disease were randomized to receive supplemental olive oil (3 grams per day or no supplement (control group) for 4 weeks.


Subjects were then challenged with fine to ultrafine concentrated ambient particulate in a condition-controlled exposure chamber. Immediately after exposure to the particulate matter, reductions in flow-mediated dilation were significant in the control group, but not in the olive oil group. In the olive oil group, vascular function actually improved.


We love this study because it was performed on healthy people, not in those who were already sick.


If you are consuming olive oil on a daily basis, you are ahead of the game! Just make sure you are consuming the real thing!

Updated Instructions for Carlson Super 2 Daily
No Need for Refrigeration.

Steve: The quality control manager at Carlson Laboratories contacted us with new storage suggestions.


Carlson Super 2 Daily should now be stored at room temperature instead of in the refrigerator or freezer.


There have been a few complaints about softgels leaking when at temperature extremes, causing a foul odor or tackiness to the softgels. Because of this, they made a slight tweek to the softgel.


If your current bottle is refrigerated, Carlson suggests keeping it there. When you get a new bottle, however, keep it in the pantry.


As usual, when traveling, just take the number of softgels you need for the trip and leave the bottle at home.
