  1. Do you REALLY need to take a multivitamin?

    There’s an easy way to ensure you’re covered on ALL your basic nutrients at once.

    And it costs literally pennies a day.

    So naturally, the mainstream is downright livid over this – launching attack… after attack… after attack… on simple, humble, everyday multivitamins.

    Now, they’re at it again.

    They’re out with a new report in the medical journal BMJ that claims multivitamins do pretty much nothing for most healthy people and don’t prevent non-communicable diseases.

    They claim there’s NO reason to take vitamins… NO reason to take minerals… and even NO reason to take fish oil.

    Yep. Not even a Flintstone for you!

    But don’t toss your vitamins yet – because this study only tells PART of the story.

    And when you look at the big picture, you can see why these aren’t just good to have around.

    They can be downright essential!

    What your multivitamin can do for you

    Multivitamins aren’t a disease-beating magic pill, and no one in natural medicine would ever claim that.

    But they fill in the gaps. And when it comes to gaps…

    Nearly EVERYONE is missing out one SOMETHING.

    That’s not my opinion. That’s a fact. The Linus Pauling Institute looked at data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 2007-2010 and found that based on diet alone:

    • 3 percent don’t get enough vitamin D
    • 5 percent miss out on vitamin E
    • 2 percent fall short in magnesium
    • 1 percent fail on calcium
    • 43 percent have insufficient vitamin A
    • 9 percent are low in vitamin C

    And many others fall short in potassium, choline, vitamin K and just about ALL of the B vitamins.

    That’s not even the full list!

    Without a thorough test, there’s no way of knowing what you might be missing. And even if you take a test, that’s just a snapshot of one moment in time, and won’t capture the full range of nutrient levels over weeks, months and years.

    So you can either pay big money for frequent blood tests… and feel like a human pincushion to boot… or just assume that you’re among the vast majority of Americans missing SOMETHING.

    The simplest way to correct nearly all of it at once is with a multivitamin.

    These vitamins aren’t going to CURE any single disease.

    But they WILL cover you on the basics – ensuring at the very least a baseline for nutrition to start from, support against common health concerns and maybe even give you an edge in the fight against conditions such as bone loss, mood disorders and immune system issues, all of which have a strong nutritional component.

    Just think of them as smart, broad spectrum nutrient insurance.

    Then, beyond that, work with a doctor who practices integrative or functional medicine to go over your specific risks and what you might need in addition to a multivitamin for complete protection.

  2. The lung disease you didn’t know you had… and how to BEAT it

    You don’t see many people wearing ribbons for it. There are no big celebrity-backed awareness campaigns.

    And it’s not something they talk about on TV much, if at all.

    But right now… at this very moment… tens of thousands of older Americans are quietly suffering from the earliest stages of a potentially devastating lung disease.

    By the time they know it’s there, it might be too late to do much about it.

    Today, I’m going to share with you the early-warning signals so you know EXACTLY when you’re at risk for pulmonary fibrosis and can seek help FAST, when it has a chance to matter most.

    More importantly, I’ve also got something else: a completely natural way that promises to help FIGHT this condition and STOP it from ruining your golden years!

    A dangerous condition… hiding in plain sight

    Some 200,000 Americans are living with pulmonary fibrosis – and every week, up to 1,000 more patients are diagnosed with the condition, which leads to dangerous scarring on your lungs.

    That makes it difficult to breathe – and almost impossible for your body to get the oxygen it needs.

    Over time, it can lead to lung failure and even death.

    It’s not always clear WHY it happens.

    In most cases, doctors STILL don’t know the cause.

    But we do know this: Quick action can slow it down… and new research shows one step you can take right now against this disease in its earliest stages.

    The secret is a compound locked inside green tea.

    In a small study, patients given 600 mg of the tea compound epigallocatechin gallate – better known as EGCG – had remarkable changes within just two weeks.

    Both blood tests and lung biopsy samples showed LOWER LEVELS of the protein known to cause those scars compared to patients who didn’t get the supplements.

    And if this research holds up, that could make EGCG and excellent choice – especially to folks in the critical earliest stages of this condition.

    So… how do you know if you’re at risk?

    Many people don’t, because the first symptoms are often so mild you might think it’s something else.

    It usually starts with a dry cough.

    Some might blame allergies. Some might think it’s “that darned cold that keeps coming back.”

    In reality, it could be your first sign – one that needs to get checked out, especially if it’s accompanied by the other most common symptom: shortness of breath.

    Again, it may seem minor at first. And you might want to blame it on your age.

    But there’s a chance it’s not minor, and not your age, especially if it gets worse.

    Get yourself checked out. Get some tests. And talk to your doctor about this new discovery – because if the new study is any indication, EGCG could play a key role in slowing this condition down and protecting your lungs.
