Summer’s coming and we all like ice cream, lemonade, and maybe a Margarita or two. But… listen up! The Journal of the American Medical Assn. recently published a research study that found a significant relationship between the additional consumption of sugar and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) death.
A highly controlled study that took into account age, sex, race/ethnicity, sociodemographic, behavioral and clinical characteristics recorded added sugar consumption as a percentage of average daily calories and determined that there was a significant relationship between added sugar and CVD. During the 2005-2010 time period, most adults consumed 10% or more of their daily calories from added sugar with 10% of all adults reviewed consuming 25% or more of their daily calories from added sugar.
Other studies have shown a large part of these sugar calories comes from what we drink. Sports, electrolyte and energy drinks may be loaded with sugar as are latte’s, soda, packaged fruit drink soda alternatives and even bottled teas. Don’t substitute those sugared beverages for sugar-free ones unless you have determined the artificial sweetener (just as aspartame or AceK) does not come with a list of potential health risks.
Ck out our choice for an electrolyte beverage maker that has no sugar or artificial sweeteners. electroBlast.com We found a 50% discount on that site to try specific flavors of the product.
Deer velvet (humanely harvested fuzz on the antlers) traditionally was used in China over a thousand years ago. Even today, many oriental countries rely on it for its rejuvenation properties, alleviating of menopause symptoms and as an aphrodisiac. In addition users have discovered its good for promoting growth in children, increasing blood in the body, helping cardiovascular disorders, preventing aging and loss of memory, treating menstrual disorders, addressing impotence and infertility and strengthening stamina.
Since 1991 New Zealand scientists have been carrying out a unique investigation into the composition and medical properties of velvet at AgResearch Invermay on the South Island. Their studies verified ancient claims to the efficacy of velvet’s properties. A Russian study revealed that velvet antler has hypotensive, erythopoietic, anti-stress stimulating, anti-inflammatory, gonadotrophic, growth and metabolic effects. Athletes have found velvet antler beneficial for repair of stressed joints and for the added stamina and endurance it seems to provide.
I personally had meniscus damage in my knees from skiing. Not want to face surgery I tried the New Zealand velvet antler (NZVEL) along with a topical cream that contained CMO (Joint Medic). I hate to say the word “cure”, but I no longer have trick knees, no pain and no clicking in my knee. The combination seems to have restored my synovial fluid and somehow reduced the bone on bone trauma whenever I would run or bike. I used to wear a brace to protect the lateral movement on my knee… no more! I can bike without becoming crippled afterwards and hiking and skiing are no problem anymore.
Velvet Antler warrants further investigation if you have a specific condition you think it may help. There is a copy of the book “Velvet Antler, Powerful tonic for joints, infertility, blood pressure, athletic performance and more” available at http://bit.ly/1ncFoid for $1 as a PDF or you can buy the paperback at Amazon http://amzn.to/1oTH0SI. More info on the actual NZVEL product I used is available at http://bit.ly/1kdt55v.
