Deficiency in Vitamin D Hastens Frailty and Early Death

Deficiency in Vitamin D Hastens Frailty and Early Death

Two recent studies - one from Oregon State University and another from the University of Maryland's School of Medicine - have determined that lower blood levels of the "sunshine vitamin" - vitamin D (serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D)) - equates to earlier death and greater incidence of frailty later in life.

The most recent study, led by Dr. Ellen Smit, an assistant professor at Oregon State, analyzed 4,731 adults over the age of 60 years old. The study followed the adults for twelve years using data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

The researchers measured the adults' levels of frailty, gauged by low body mass, exhaustion, general weakness, slower walking and reduced physical activity.

The randomized study's methodology, intended to represent the general U.S. elderly population, also followed death rates and  correlated them with serum vitamin D levels.

Food Allergies Linked with Lack of Vitamin D and Sunshine

Food Allergies Linked with Lack of Vitamin D and Sunshine

We already knew sunshine and vitamin D were important to health - given the over 70 diseases now associated with their deficiency. Now research is proving their role in food allergies.

Researchers from the University of Melbourne have determined that children who had lower levels of vitamin D are more likely to have multiple food allergies.

The researchers tested 5,276 one year-old children. They gave the children skin prick tests to determine their allergies to peanuts, eggs, sesame, cow's milk or shrimp. They also analyzed blood samples from 577 children, of which 344 had food allergies and 74 more sensitized but tolerant.

Science Shows Herbs Can Significantly Enhance Bioavailability of Nutrients


Science Shows Herbs Can Significantly Enhance Bioavailability of Nutrients

Just because you consume a particular food or drink, doesn't mean all the nutrients make their way into the body, to the locations where they end up being used or stored. Sometimes they just pass right out of your gastrointestinal tract without being absorbed and other times they are broken-down immediately by the liver and excreted by the kidneys.

Nutrients have to make it through a variety of obstacles, starting from the moment they enter your mouth to the moment they are used or stored. The bioavailability of a particular nutrient refers to the ability of the nutrient to pass through some or all of these obstacles, so that they are absorbed into your body and become available for use or storage [1].

Every fall we are urged to get flu shots and wash our hands, that's it.

Turmeric (Curcumin) Shown to Possess a Powerful Anti-Aging Effect

The latest, and most likely, program theory of aging is the telomere shortening theory. Telomeres are the end-cap segments of DNA (our genetic material). Each time a cell replicates, a small piece of DNA is taken off the end of each chromosome. The shorter the telomere gets, the more it affects gene expression. The result is cellular aging and an increased risk for immune dysfunction, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and other degenerative diseases.

Angelika Tritscher, the World Health Organization representative to Codex Alimentarius meetings, aptly posed a question to the Codex delegates assembled at a Food Contaminants meeting in Moscow in 2013, "How can we keep Codex relevant?" In posing this question, Dr. Tritscher quickly cut to the heart of the potential downfall of Codex. My response to Dr. Tritscher's question was, "If Codex wants to remain relevant to consumers, then it must create food standards that are truly healthy and make sense."
