Chew Anise Seeds And Help Stop Heartburn, Bloating And Nausea

At least 66% of women are struggling with nausea, gas, bloat and heartburn right now. The reason? summer heat and humidity re route blood from the skin, hindering the production of digestive enzymes

But chewing 1/2 tsp of  Anise Seeds ( taste like licorice) can quickly soothe even stubborn G.I .upsets. The seeds are 75% anethole - a phytonutrient that spurs the release of digestive enzymes, improves intestinal motility and helps block gas formation.

Closure Of World Class Testing Facility Leads To False Claims And Inferior Products

Life Choice CEO Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND, and Constitutional lawyer Shawn Buckley both believe that Ottawa's closing of a testing lab has led to inferior natural health food products to enter the Canadian market.

Buckley, a constitutional lawyer who represents the Natural Health Products Industry, believes that the closure has resulted in many company's falsifying their paperwork, thus, making their inferior products look high quality, therapeutic and safe.

According to Buckley "it is ironic, that the Federal government would close down a world class testing lab, and then impose more regulations to make if look as if they are making the industry more safe. Yet, without testing, how do you know that the product is really safe? how do you know that the ingredient's on the label match the contents of the bottle? You don't."

Dahl, a nautropath physician and CEO of Life Choice, with over 26 years in the Natural Health
Industry agrees with Buckley. He believes that the Natural Health Products Industry along with the Federal government, should have an open and honest discussion about product quality.

Dahl agrees with Buckley, in the sense, that  the closing of the testing facility has resulted in the licensing of many natural health products, that in the end, possess no therapeutic value for consumers.

To help explain the difference between the high and the low end brands, Dr. Dahl explains the differences in three keys areas: the types of raw materials used; the processing method implemented; the complimentary features of the formulations.

According to Dr. Dahl, "the high end brands use only quality natural raw materials consisting of plant based nutrients of the highest purity. These raw materials are then processed using a method called fermentation. The end result, is a formulation, in which all the ingredients compliment each other, providing maximum therapeutic value.

With low end brands, you really do not know what you are getting. Some low end brands have been known to contain raw materials of sewage, horse hair, animal hair and duck feathers. Some use an inferior processing method known as extraction. Others, create formulations which are non complimentary meaning that they have no therapeutic value."

There is no question that product quality is the key to a healthy and sustainable natural health products industry. Government can do their part by re-opening the world class testing facility that they closed. Suppliers, can do their part by sourcing raw materials that are of the highest grade. And manufacturers can do their part by processing and creating formulations that are complimentary and possess high theraputic value.

Finally, government and industry must communicate and work together to ensure that safe, effective and high quality natural health remedies are available to the consumer on a continious basis.

Scientific Studies Show That Kava Kava Is Very Safe For Human Consumption

In the July, 2012 edition of the New Agora Magazine,  Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND and CEO of the Nutracutical Company Life Choice, wrote an  interesting article on the history and benefits of Kava Kava (p.10). In addition, he not only provides evidence on the products safety record, but he provides a unique insight into the long journey that his company had to take in order to get the product licensed by Health Canada.

In a  complimentary article written by David Miller of Dicentra, the author explores the position of various Western governments towards Kava Kava (Canada, the United States, The European Union) and then proceeds to provide scientific and statistical evidence that would seem to raise doubts about the validity of their decisions in either banning, restricting, or issuing product safety warnings.

Garlic Compound More Effective Than Antibiotics In Fighting Food-Borne Bacteria

A research team at Washington State University have found that a compound in garlic is 100 times more effective than two popular antibiotics at fighting the Camplobacter bacterium, one of the most common causes of intestinal illness. 
The discovery opens the door to new treatments for raw and processed meats and food preparation surfaces.
According to one of the lead researchers of the study Xiaonan Lu, "This work is very exciting to me because it shows that this compound has the potential to reduce disease-causing bacteria in the environment and in our food supply."

It is suggested that Campylobacter is one of the most common bacterial causes of food-borne illness in the United States and probably the world. Some 2.4 million Americans are affected every year, according to the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with symptoms including diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain and fever.

Most infections stem from eating raw or undercooked poultry or foods that have been cross-contaminated via surfaces or utensils used to prepare poultry. 

Lu and his colleagues looked at the ability of the garlic-derived compound, diallyl sulfide to kill the bacterium when it is protected by a slimy biofilm that makes it 1,000 times more resistant to antibiotics than the free floating bacterial cell. They found the compound can easily penetrate the protective biofilm and kill bacterial cells by combining with a sulfur-containing enzyme, subsequently changing the enzyme's function and effectively shutting down cell metabolism.

The researchers found the diallyl sulfide was as effective as 100 times as much of the antibiotics erythromycin and ciprofloxacin and often would work in a fraction of the time.

However, "diallyl sulfide may be useful in reducing the levels of the Campylobacterin in the environment and to clean industrial food processing equipment, as the bacterium is found in a biofilm in both settings," he said.

"Diallyl sulfide could make many foods safer to eat," said Barbara Rasco, a co-author on all three recent papers and Lu's advisor for his doctorate in food science. "It can be used to clean food preparation surfaces and as a preservative in packaged foods like potato and pasta salads, coleslaw and deli meats.
This would not only extend shelf life but it would also reduce the growth of potentially bad bacteria," she said.
