RADIO HEALTH PEARL #454 …brought to you by the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center.

If starting out your New Year includes a resolution to improve your overall health, then look into adding some dietary supplements to your lifestyle.

A simple, but OH-SO important one is the mineral MAGNESIUM. Inexpensive, but packed with a lot of punch, it is involved in many daily functions:

  • MAGNESIUM is necessary for pulling your dietary calcium from your gut into the bloodstream.
  • MAGNESIUM strengthens the heart muscle, which is important for all who have heart problems; and it helps with regulating our blood pressure.
  • MAGNESIUM is an overall muscle relaxer. Any tightness in your back, shoulders, hips, calves and legs is helped with this mineral.
  • And, MAGNESIUM is responsible for activating more than 400 enzyme functions in the body; these include both digestive- and systemic enzymes.

Taking about 600 mg daily of good-quality MAGNESIUM should be doable for most people.

We have a very nice selection of different available options for you at …the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center, at 2855 North 19th Avenue.

RADIO HEALTH PEARL #424 ….brought to you by the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center.

I would like to explain a few more things about HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE:

There are those who have a genetic High Blood Pressure problem. They are healthy otherwise; but not for insurance companies, which only look at numbers. A similar fate affects those with genetic high cholesterol.

Anyway, there are natural options available to assist in reducing high blood pressure. Several of these have excellent track records:

As far as HERBS are concerned, look into Hawthorn, Butchers Broom, Horse chestnut and Garlic.

Then there are the MINERALS Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium and Copper that show continued success.

VITAMINS and AMINO ACIDS that are helpful in lowering blood pressure include Vitamin B-Complex, C and E, Coenzyme Q10, Arginine and Carnitine.

These may all have to be taken in higher amounts than your current dosage, or those found in a multivitamin, so pay attention to that. Higher amounts may help other issues as well.

And for more assistance, please visit us at …the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center on North 19th Avenue.
