  • The Calcium Challenge

    by James Brodsky, M.D. | September 26, 2016

    calcium_kalesardinesI regularly get questions from patients about calcium. Do I need more? How much do I take? Can I take it just once a day? Should it have magnesium? Will it fix my osteoporosis? Lots of questions…

    Well, I start by reminding patients that calcium isn’t just for bones. It’s required for muscle contraction, blood vessel contraction/expansion, secretion of hormones and enzymes, and sending messages through the nervous system. About 99% of your total body calcium is stored in bones and the remaining 1% is found throughout the body in muscle, cellular fluids and blood. It’s about 2% of your total body weight. If you don’t have a calcium-rich diet, your body will continue to extract calcium stored in your bones to meet your active daily needs. Read more

  • Favorite Product: Pathway's Full-Spectrum Digestive Enzymes

    by Paula Gallagher | April 11, 2016

    digestive enzymesOne of my favorite products for digestive relief is Pathway Digase. We do a lot of running around on weekends, and many times have to rely on eating out, which means that you never really know how your stomach is going to feel. Digase can be a lifesaver.

    Digase is a combination of digestive enzymes that help break down food in order to make it easier to digest. When sitting down to a restaurant meal, I take a couple right before I start to eat and sometimes I even take two more afterwards if the dessert is particularly tasty.

    You don’t have to save enzymes for eating out to reap the benefits of digestive enzymes. Taking one before each meal can help the digestive process. Some people find that their stomach becomes a little upset after eating foods like beans or broccoli. Pathway Digase may help ease some of that discomfort.

    You can save 30% on Pathway Digase at our Spring Sale, through April 18!

  • Vitamin D3 Supplementation Benefits Heart Health

    by Paula Gallagher | April 6, 2016

    heartWe know that vitamin D is good for our bones, teeth, and immune system, and now a new study has added heart health to the list.

    The study out of University of Leeds School of Medicine in the UK has shown that patients with chronic heart failure can benefit from daily supplementation of vitamin D3. Patients all had chronic heart failure and were all deficient in vitamin D3. Over the course of a year, half the patients were given a vitamin D3 supplement and the other half were given a placebo.

  • Time to Spring Clean Your Body

    by Paula Gallagher | March 29, 2016

    Opening windows, seeding your lawn, and cleaning your windows are some of the things most of us do in our homes when the first signs of spring start popping up. But our homes aren’t the only things we should be looking at – spring clean your body to get a fresh start and feel great!

    A seasonal body cleanse can do wonders for our health. Cleansing or detoxifying can help the body rid itself of toxins that have built up in our systems over the months (or years).

    A quality cleanse will enhance the body’s natural detoxification process, which includes the liver, kidneys, digestive system, lymphatics and blood. If you have never done a cleanse before, the variety of options available today can be confusing and daunting. Here are two that I like. Read more
