Here are two nutrition tips from Holistic Nutrition Center to consider as you begin your
healthy new year:
Minerals: are a requirement from your diet. They work with your DNA metabolism and need to be in a
state of balance for proper function. You take them in from food and eliminate them through
body fluids such as sweat, urine or diarrhea. Excess fluids leaving the body can flush minerals
out. So health-promoting fitness
programs that leave you drenched, like hot yoga, for example, can produce
unintentional mineral deficiencies or imbalances.
I just came across a supplement that’s described as a memory
solution, developed by a neurologist.
It claims to prevent fuzzy thinking and forgetfulness and protect
against oxidative damage. It also
claims to promote improvement in cognitive function, protect the brain, and to
demonstrate antioxidant activity.
Sounds great, doesn’t it?
There are a few problems with this product that are related

Holistic Nutrition Center – Hey diabetics, pre-diabetics
and people who wish to prevent diabetes.
The updated diabetic diet looks healthy on first glance, but it may not
be. The expectation for diabetics is
still to be ‘customers for life’, on a pathway can lead to blindness, kidney
failure and amputation. The new
diet doesn’t change this standard of care or the imposition this disease will
have on your lifestyle and pocketbook.
There’s a different path, but you have to be a
bit of a rebel to walk it.
