The vitamin C content of fruit of the world.

Exactly half a milligram is rounded up, not down. Most of the information is from the USDA Nutrient database for standard reference, release 12 (1998). So these figures should not be taken as 'gospel', but rather as indicative. The current (1989) recommended daily allowance (RDA) for an adult is 60 milligrams per day (this is based on the amount of vitamin C needed to prevent clinical scurvy and provide body stores sufficient to prevent scurvy for around 30 days, plus "a margin of safety"). Nutritionists generally regard any 'serving' of food that provides 10% to 25% of the daily vitamin C need in a relatively low calorie package as a 'good' source.

Magnesium Water: From Wheat Belly Total Health

The recipes in Wheat Belly Total Health are not conventional recipes, such as those for soups or entrees; they are functional recipes that provide some specific health benefit, from electrolyte restoration to bowel flora cultivation. Here, I reproduce the recipe for Magnesium Water, the best form of magnesium supplementation available that you cannot buy.

Schenker, D.C. September, 2008 Dear Doctor, Effects of iron supplementation and discontinuation on serum copper, zinc, calcium, and magnesium levels in women. Calcium and Disease: Hypertension, organ calcification, & shock, vs. respiratory energy. Calcium and Disease: Hypertension, organ calcification, & shock, vs. respiratory energy SOME CONTEXTS In biology and biochemistry, calcium is the substance most often studied, so it is significant that researchers still speak of a calcium paradox.

Calcium and Disease: Hypertension, organ calcification, & shock, vs. respiratory energy

There are several such paradoxes: As bones lose calcium, the soft tissues calcify; when less calcium is eaten, blood calcium may increase, along with calcium in many organs and tissues; if an organ such as the heart is deprived of calcium for a short time, its cells lose their ability to respond normally to calcium, and instead they take up a large, toxic amount of calcium. Magnesium deficiency and calcium deficiency have some similar symptoms (such as cramping), but magnesium is antagonistic to calcium in many systems. It is the basic protective calcium blocker. Inflammation leads to excessive uptake of calcium by cells, and is a factor in obesity, depression, and the degenerative diseases. The Calcium Controversy. Guy E.

The Calcium Controversy

Abraham, M.D.* It is often stated that large amounts of calcium are required for strong bones, to calm nerves and for other characteristics of good health. Pyrrole Disorder for Therapists. Moody.

Pyrrole Disorder for Therapists

That’s the word loved ones, friends, and co-workers usually use to describe the person in their life suffering from untreated pyrrole disorder. Everyone walks on eggshells whenever this person is around. No one ever knows what’s going to set them off. Like a time bomb ticking away, stress continually builds inside the pyroluric’s body until a full-blown eruption occurs. Then the damage is done. Pyroluria Questionare.

Healing Autism & ADHD

Gastrointestinal disorders may cause zinc deficiency, often with loss of nutrients due to diarrhea. Malabsorption and maldigestion that goes along with digestive enzyme weakness, food allergies and intolerance can cause kids on the spectrum to have subnormal zinc blood levels. Hypercupremia - High Copper. Hypercupremia is a state of high copper within the body that alters our biochemistry in such a prominent way, increasing the likelihood of neurological/behavioural alterations and mental illness.

Hypercupremia - High Copper

It can be caused by congenital (copper transfer from mother to baby via placenta), genetic and environmental factors. Genetic alterations result in improper functioning of the metallothionein protein (copper binding protein), with an inabilty of the body to control copper metabolism. The genetically determined condition, Pyroluria, also results in high copper levels, as large quantities of zinc are depleted from the body. Furthermore, xeno-oestrogens, hormone therapy (oestrogen dominance), water supply, cigarette smoking, long term stress (adrenal insufficiency) and nutritional imbalance (Zinc deficiency) all contribute to high copper in the body. Linus Pauling Institute. Calm-marita (aka the Healthy Margarita) Let’s start this with a confession: today I need a margarita. After a long weekend of dealing with website troubles and technology that I still don’t quite understand, I am ready for a drink. After three and a half years of blogging through Blogger, this year I made the decision to switch my website to WordPress.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with a fabulous and knowledgeable professional to help me move everything, but there have still been some kinks to work out along the way. Some of you may have noticed that this website wasn’t loading over the weekend, but hopefully everything should be resolved by now. But, if you’re still having some trouble or things are acting weird (broken links, missing images, etc), would you mind contacting me and letting me know? Regardless of how your weekend was, perhaps you need a margarita too? This isn’t the typical combination of alcohol and sugar like most mixed drinks though.

The Great Fish Oil Experiment. The Great Fish Oil Experiment Reading medical journals and following the mass media, it's easy to get the idea that fish oil is something any sensible person should use. It's rare to see anything suggesting that it could be dangerous. During the recent years in which the U.S. government has gone from warning against the consumption of too much of these omega-3 oils ("to assure that the combined daily intake of two fatty acids that are components" "(i.e., eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)) would not exceed 3 grams per person per day (g/p/d)") to sponsoring biased industry claims, there has been considerable accumulation of information about the dangers of fish oils and omega-3 fatty acids.

But there has been an even greater increase in the industry's promotional activities. The US government and the mass media selectively promote research that is favorable to the fish oil industry.

Taking calcium supplements -- even at low doses -- linked to brain lesions in the first study of its kind.

Most calcium supplements are just plain bad news. The idea of taking calcium in pill or tablet form to "keep the bones strong" just doesn't make that much sense given, first, that we are designed to get our calcium from food. Second, our bone is a living tissue, which requires vitamin C, amino acids, magnesium, silica, vitamins D and K, etc., not to mention regular physical activity, just as much as it does calcium. - Study Suggests a Link Between Zinc and Anxiety.

Metals on our Mind. © KURT DRUBBEL/ISTOCKPHOTO.COMMany people threw out their aluminum pots and pans in the 1960s and 1970s, when they heard that researchers had discovered small amounts of the metal in the sticky amyloid plaques that litter the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. While the notion that ingestion of aluminum products might contribute to the disease has since been discredited, evidence is accumulating that metals such as copper, zinc, and iron can play an important role in driving brain degeneration. These biologically active metals have been linked not only to Alzheimer’s disease (AD), but also to Parkinson’s, motor neuron disease, and a group of childhood brain disorders called lysosomal storage diseases, among others.
