Vitamins: The Good and the Bad

VitaminsThese days everyone is hunting for a bargain. But when it comes to vitamins, do you really know what you’re getting?

First, cheap vitamins are usually synthetic. Synthetic vitamins are made from coal tar derivatives and are much cheaper to produce than natural vitamins which come from food and other natural sources. There are mixed feelings about whether or not synthetic vitamins are as good as natural, but my personal opinion is that I want my vitamins to come from a food source, not a fuel source which is known to be carcinogenic (cancer-causing).

Adrenal GlandsSo, you think you know where your sexual hormones are produced?  If you think it’s your ovaries and testicles doing all of the work, you’re wrong.  Your adrenal glands are doing a lot of the work.  That’s right; those glands that help give you your energy are also the ones responsible for sex drive.  And that’s not all they are responsible for.

The Plain Facts About Alkalinity

Peter Gillham's Nutrition Center in Clearwater, FloridaThere are literally hundreds of books, blogs and information out there on alkalinity in the body. This has led to numerous supplements to help handle alkalinity and litmus paper manufacturers making a mint on strips to see how acid or alkaline your saliva is. But are these readings right and are you actually shutting down your digestive system by trying to handle acidity?

Desiree LotzFirst it was the birds that got the rap and now it’s the pigs. And we fall hook, line and sinker for all the dour news that devastation is going to descend and kill us all if we don’t have a needle jabbed into us!

There has been flu on this planet since time immemorial and we’re still here - in ever-increasing numbers. What happened to the so-called devastating effects of the last big flu threat - avian flu? It flew into non-existence and died the death it deserved. It’s amazing how much fear a controlled media can create.

Peter Gillham's Nutrition Center in Downtown ClearwaterYour body is continually rebuilding itself, cell by cell, every single day. If it doesn’t get what it needs to build itself, it starts to break down and physical problems develop. So, what are the building blocks of the body and where do you get them from?

These building blocks are called amino acids. Your body makes a lot of them itself—as long as you are eating a good diet—but some of them your body can’t make. These are called essential amino acids and your body gets them from very specific foods. Below is a list of the eight essential amino acids and the foods they come from:
