Highlighted Supplement of the Week: Choline.

Choline is an essential nutrient linked to so many incredible health benefits, but chances are you haven’t heard much about it.

Choline plays an important role in many processes in your body, including fat and cholesterol transport, energy metabolism, and cell and nerve signalling. According to some recent studies, choline is associated with a reduced risk of dementia. There is also evidence that a choline-rich diet builds stronger bones and a higher intake of choline is also associated with a reduced risk of heart and liver disease.

Although it is produced by your body naturally, it's important to supplement with foods rich in choline such as eggs, meat, fish and dairy, as well as some green vegetables, fruits and whole grains.

Standard Proces also makes a choline supplement. We test your body for it with Natural Response Testing.


Anti biotics have their place, but taking them for every cold can be detrimental to the good bacteria in your gut. To help support your health, consider eating real, fermentented sauerkraut on a regular basis.

Three Disasterous Diet Decisions That Have Led to Obesity - The Natural Health and Healing Center

If you were born in the fifties or earlier you might remember a time when nearly everyone was thin and relatively healthy.

If you are young enough you might assume that it has always been this way. That, as a nation, we have always struggled with our diet, weight and health. But if you were born in the fifties or earlier you might remember a time when nearly …


Center for Food Safety

Please read and pass on this important information!

An important development: The American Academy of Pediatrics is urging families to limit the use of plastic food containers, cut down on processed meat during pregnancy and consume more whole fruits and vegetables rather than processed food to limit children's exposure to chemicals in food and food packaging.

"Among the chemicals that raised particular concern are nitrates and nitrites, which are used as preservatives, primarily in meat products; phthalates, which are used to make plastic packaging; and bisphenols, used in the lining of metal cans for canned food products. Also of concern to the pediatricians are perfluoroalkyl chemicals, or PFCs, used in grease-proof paper and packaging, and perchlorates, an antistatic agent used in plastic packaging."


Hope all the April (and May) showers have brought you some wonderful flowers...and healthy, homegrown veggies!
