In a 2012 UCLA study published in the Journal of Physiology, researchers found that a diet high in fructose over time can damage your memory and learning ability – is it any wonder that disorders like ADD/ADHD is now in epidemic proportions in both children and adults?
Beyond harm to your brain, the world’s best researchers’ know that a high fructose diet can also cause insulin resistance in your body over time, and possibly lead to type-2 diabetes and extra body fat. If that's not enough, a high fructose diet also detrimentally affects your triglyceride levels in your blood as well as small dense LDL particles that cause plaque in your arteries.
The Bottom Line…High-fructose intake = impaired memory and learning in your brain, increased risk of diabetes, and increased risk of heart disease. Oh, and we forgot to mention extra belly fat too…you know…that expanding or lost waistline we often call “middle-aged spread.” ...click to continue reading...
After age 30, testosterone levels begin to decline by about 1% per year. Is this a big deal? You bet it is! Just consider that by the time you reach age 65, your levels have declined 35 percent. Is it any wonder your “get up and go got up and went”, that romantic date night use to energize you just thinking about it and now? The effects of low testosterone can chisel away at not only your quality of life but also that of your spouse or mate.
If you’re one of the millions of men experiencing the effects of low “T” and you are willing to take easy life-style steps to become Terrific Again, here’s how to begin to not only avoid falling victim if they haven’t come knocking yet, but also to help keep your testosterone levels high, Naturally…
1. Cortisol Control – Your adrenal glands release a hormone called cortisol in response to any stressors. It not only is responsible for controlling your fight or flight responses, it also raises blood pressure and blood sugar – any wonder why men over the age of 60 usually have those responder levels out of control? Studies show that men with high cortisol levels are less competitive than men with low levels and that also plays an important role in overall emotional health. The way to keep the “T” in Terrific is to do whatever it takes to lower stress levels so your energy is directed to things that enhance your quality of life, not sabotage it...click here to continue reading...

Yes, my secret is out...I love bananas. When you consider their jam-packed health benefits, it’s nature’s original fast-food! If you are diabetic or have high blood sugar, be careful to test blood sugar levels to see what your individual tolerance is to the natural sugar in bananas.

If you’re like me, you sit for endless hours at your computer. The practice of sitting and not moving your body on a regular basis, at least every 1.5 to 2 hours, is one of the tragedies of our modern technological lifestyle.
Researchers followed over 17,000 people for 13 years and found that people who sit most of
the day increase their risk of dying from a heart attack by a whopping 54%, according to Pennington Biomedical Research Center. Even a larger study was confirmed by The American Cancer Society following more than 123,000 people for 14 years. The study found that women who sat for more than six hours a day were 40% more likely to die, and men increased their risk of dying by 20 percent.
If those statistics aren’t enough to get you moving, maybe this is – people who exercised regularly but spent their day sitting still had an increased risk of dying – in other words, you cannot undo the damage of sitting all those hours...click to continue reading...
Okay, by now you’re asking, “what happens to the body to cause these devastating effects”?
According to Dr. Hamilton of the University of Missouri in Columbia, “The fat will recirculate in the blood stream and get stored as body fat or it can clog arteries and cause disease. The existing data, by numerous studies, are starting to show that the rates of heart disease, diabetes and obesity are doubled, or sometimes tripled, in people who sit a lot.”
The longer you sit, the more of your metabolism shuts down – degrading the longer you keep from moving. What needs to be taken into consideration is the entire time sitting – at work, home and driving. When you move your body, your muscles actually use the fat and the result naturally energizes your mind and body.
Let’s think about the average day in a busy person’s life. You probably drive extensively
as part of your job or your commute, you sit at your job and then get home exhausted,
tired, drained, mentally and physically spent…and all you did was sit. For those professions that do heavy physical work, they may have aches and pains from sore muscles but they actually have a healthier work activity than those who sit.
Not only is moving good for your heart and overall health, it actually increases work
performance. Research conducted over a seven-week study supplied a sit-to-stand
adjustable ergonomic desk unit to see if changing positions helped performance. The
workers reported feeling better mentally, more focused, healthier and more energized.
The easiest way to remember to get up and move is to set an alarm, either a stand-alone or
the alarm on your computer or portable device. From my clinical experience, I find its best to get up and move every 45 minutes for at least 5-10 minutes of stretching or moving. I personally get up and jump on my rebounder for 10 minutes several times a day. This exercise is easy to do, convenient to store in a corner and is unparalleled in stimulating the entire body, particularly the lymphatic system. This simple exercise has been said to be a facelift for your cells because it not only stimulates them but also adds oxygen. The secret is to ONLY pump your heels into the mat to the rhytym of your heart beat and then alternate feet, always keeping the ball of the foot and toes on the mat. This is not the type of exercise done by children on a trampoline where they fly up into the air -- great for children, not good for adults because of the stress on bones and joints and propensity for injuries.
It doesn’t have to be difficult to move your body. Hopefully the following suggestions will find their way into your daily routine.
Peripheral nerves carry information to and from the brain. They also carry signals to and from the spinal cord to the rest of the body. Peripheral neuropathy means these nerves don't workproperly. Peripheral neuropathy may be damage to a single nerve. It may be damage to a nerve group.

First, let’s go back to when this supplement was first discovered.
It’s 1957 and a young research biochemist and assistant professor at the Wisconsin’s Enzyme Institute was investigating the biochemical responses involved in cellular energy production.
Mitochondria*, present in both animal and plant cells are at the center stage for activity of a substance identified as CoQ10. However the professor, Fred Crane, PhD and his team didn’t know that at that time – no scientist had ever heard of CoQ10 (also known as Ubiquinone).
*Mitochondria – organelles (microscopic organs) within the cells where oxygen and the derivatives
from the food you eat are “mixed” to create energy. Just think of the mitochondria as your “power plants” that continually generate energy to operate each individual cell.
Fred Crane, the scientist identified above, later developed Type 2 Diabetes and needed medication to control his condition. After time, the medication wasn’t working and his blood sugar level continued to rise. As Crane told it, “I thought maybe CoQ10 might help. I was taking 30 mg daily but then raised it to 180 mg daily. Within a period of six months, my insulin levels normalized and my blood sugar dropped to what it should be to be healthy - without medication. I continue this approach and, after several years, it’s still working.”
The action of CoQ10 is probably related to improving the bioenergetics and, as a result, the production of the so-called beta cells on the pancreas – where insulin is produced.
According to Peter Langsjoen, a Texas cardiologist, who has observed remarkable improvements in his patients with cardiovascular disease, “About one-third of them are doing considerably better after supplementing with CoQ10. By that I mean better blood sugar control and a reduced need, or a need at all, for medication. It appears frequently enough that I now inform patients to monitor their levels carefully as they may need to lower or eliminate their level of insulin or oral medication.”
Langsjoen explains, “With CoQ10 you change the fundamental cellular chemistry of everything.
That said, you see many improvements throughout the body. I see so many overall aspects of health that improve simply because you are energizing everything.”
Health Benefits of CoQ10
I personally take 400 mg. daily as a proactive approach for aging without looking or feeling old. Type 2 Diabetes runs rampant in my genes and I need to do all I can to prevent it and also the devastating effects like heart disease and cognitive decline.
My recommendations for my clients are as follows:
Age CoQ10 (daily amount total)
30-40 25 mg
40-50 50 mg
50-60 100 mg (more if specificrisk factors)
60-70 300-400 (more if specific risk factors)
70+ 400 – 500 (more if specific risk factors)
Don’t go cheap when it comes to CoQ10, this is one place quality must take precedence over cost.
