Liposomes deliver nutrients in a form that is easy for the body to utilize resulting in better outcomes.

Dr. Blair has been studying liposomes for the absorption of many nutrients. Some of the nutrients like iron are poorly absorbed while nutrients like glutathione are not absorbed orally at all. Liposome nutrients can be absorbed up to 17 times better than conventional forms.

Dr. Blair has developed many liposomes and has numerous clinical studies that reveal the wonderful benefits offered by liposome nutrients. Much better absorption leads to better results.

424 – Introduction to Homeopathy

I have used many homeopathic remedies over the years. Some of the most effective remedies I have used in our family are for allergies, colds, flu, strains and sprains, headaches. Every year we use the homeopathic formulas called Influenzium for flu prevention and Ocillococcinum for flu symptoms. Topically I use Arnica cream or gel for transient pain and Florasone cream as a topical steroid cream replacement. I love that these are safe treatment and they either work or not. When they work they are very impressive and effective. When they don’t work there are no side effects to worry about. You just have to find the right remedy.

423 – Pearl Tomato Extract Supports Healthy Skin

Carotenoids have been shown to benefit skin health by supporting a clearer complexion while also maintaining the quality of skin. There are many different carotenoids, each of which produces a different color. The most commonly known carotenoids are beta-carotene and lycopene. Beta-carotene is responsible for the orange color found in carrots while lycopene is responsible for the red color seen in tomatoes. While more clinical trial data is needed, early studies indicate that the consumption of lycopene may decrease the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Colored carotenoids such as Beta-carotene and lycopene are already used in dietary supplements for their photoprotective properties. However, they provide skin protection at the cost of coloring or darkening the skin. When consumed in large amounts, the accumulation of carotenoid pigments in the human body has been proven to color the skin in the short term.

421 – Rapamycin: Extending Health Span and Lifespan

In this interview Ross Pelton discusses Rapamycin and autophagy. These were new terms for me. The story of Rapamycin is interesting and intriguing. Rapamycin is a drug that was developed after discovery on Easter Island led to the drug’s development. This is an example of how a natural compound in nature is discovered, researched and developed as a drug. Ross covers this discovery in this interview and in his newest book: RAPAMYCIN – The Most Promising Life Extension Drug. This was all new to me and Ross’ book is a powerful introduction.
“Autophagy (pronounced “ah-TAH-fah-gee”) is your body’s process of reusing old and damaged cell parts. Cells are the basic building blocks of every tissue and organ in your body. Each cell contains multiple parts that keep it functioning. Over time, these parts can become defective or stop working. They become litter, or junk, inside an otherwise healthy cell.

Autophagy is your body’s cellular recycling system. It allows a cell to disassemble its junk parts and repurpose the salvageable bits and pieces into new, usable cell parts. A cell can discard the parts it doesn’t need.

Autophagy is also quality control for your cells. Too many junk components in a cell take up space and can slow or prevent a cell from functioning correctly. Autophagy remakes the clutter into the selected cell components you need, optimizing your cells’ performance.” Source: ClevelandClinic.org

418 – Show Your Heart Some Love

In this interview with Monique Wellise we will discuss the most important nutrients for cardiovascular support. It is axiomatic that a heart cannot be fully healthy if one is not well-nourished.

This concept of being well nourished is at the foundation of all health. The body is dependent on an ongoing supply of the essential nutrients to function properly and to support the structure of healthy tissue. In this interview we will discuss Omega-3 Fish Oil, CoQ10 and Magnesium as perhaps the 3 most important.
