  1. Bone loss and muscle weakness reversed with DHEA

    Ladies: RESTORE your strength and energy in 2019

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    I hope 2019 is your best year yet.

    While some see the New Year as another sign of getting older, remember that you don’t have to let the march of time SLOW YOU DOWN...

    And you certainly don’t have to let it STOP YOU from doing the things you love!

    Ladies, today I’m going to help you stay YOUTHFUL and VIBRANT even as the years tick by… because I’ve got the inside scoop on the SECRET CURE for some of the WORST problems of aging.

    Watch your “get-up-and-go” SURGE

    You can’t quite put your finger on WHEN it started...

    Maybe you didn’t notice it at first...

    But sometime after menopause, you started to wear out more easily.

    Life-sapping fatigue leaves you feeling tired.

    A loss of strength can turn simple tasks – even just opening a door – into a frustrating struggle.

    There’s a good chance your bone is starting to thin out too, turning more brittle. Even if you haven’t had a fracture… yet… you’re certainly now at risk for one.

    Now, a new study confirms an approach I’ve long been a big proponent of:

    A steroid therapy called DHEA.

    Researchers examined four trials that put DHEA therapy up against a placebo for a year.

    The combined results show two essential benefits in older women:

    • More bone mineral density by three important measures, including the hip.
    • More “fat free mass,” or a sign of increased muscle.

    That’s a BIG win for DHEA therapy – and it means this is certainly an option to consider, especially when all else fails.

    But there’s another solution – one you can try FIRST – because low DHEA is often the earliest warning sign of a much DEEPER problem…

    One that just so happens to be one of the BIGGEST undiagnosed conditions in the nation!

    It’s called adrenal fatigue, and it’s just what it sounds like.

    Your adrenals can get so overworked over the years that they just plain wear out and fail to produce the right levels of stress hormones when you need them – including DHEA!

    If you get your adrenals back in shape, you won’t need DHEA therapy – your body will be making it on command again, as-needed.

    To do this, start with the natural herbal therapy ashwagandha, which has been used for centuries in India to fight fatigue, ease stress and boost energy.

    At the time, they didn’t know WHY it worked -- only that it did.

    But today, we know ashwagandha can balance out stress hormones, giving this “ancient” remedy a modern scientific explanation!

    Don’t stop there; B vitamins and a botanical extract called rhodiola rosea can also help restore your adrenals and balance out stress hormones.

    A good adrenal support formula should contain ALL THREE of these, at a minimum.

  2. Calcium alone can’t stop bone loss in men

    What your body needs to put calcium to work

    Don't fall for it, guys!

    There's a new study out about bone health, and it claims all the calcium in the world won't protect you from breaks and fractures.

    Whether you're a young man in your 30s... about to embark on your "second life" in your early 60s... or pushing 90 and still running rings around everyone else... the study claims you can expect zero help from calcium.

    The two-year study across all those age groups finds calcium supplements lead to a quick 1 percent improvement in bone mineral density.

    But after that, nothing.

    Beyond that initial little bump, they found no link between bone loss and calcium levels by any of the usual important measures. There were no differences in bone mineral density in the spine or hip and no change in the overall levels of bone loss.

    So that's it, right?

    Nope!

    This study was badly flawed from the beginning.

    First, I have no idea why they would include younger people in their 30s. They are unlikely to benefit much since they are unlikely to be losing bone -- and that (expected) lack of benefit can drag the numbers down for the rest of the study.

    Second, and most importantly, all the study really proves is something we already know: Calcium doesn't work alone.

    It never has, and never will.

    If all you do for bone health is pop some calcium supplements, you're going to be badly disappointed by the results -- because your body needs vitamins D and K as well as magnesium to put calcium to work.

    The researchers say they tested for D levels, and all of the men in the study had the right amounts, but one out of three just isn't good enough.

    While you need D to get calcium out of your blood and into your bone, most of your D is in its inactive form.

    What converts it to the active form so it can get to work is magnesium! In addition, magnesium stimulates a hormone that helps bone to soak up calcium.

    As well, calcium can build up in the blood, where it leads to calcification -- unless it's paired with vitamin K.

    So, feel free to ignore the study and get your calcium. Just make sure you get everything else you need with it.

    And, along with those basics, consider oleuropein, a natural compound from olives that can activate the stem cells that form bone.

    In one in vitro study, oleuropein increased the formation of the cells that create new bone tissue six times over.

    A good bone support formula will have all of these essentials in the amounts you need. Look for a quality blend from a maker you trust.

  3. Bone loss linked to sleep problems

    Poor sleep can lead to thinner bone It's bad for your heart... bad for your brain... and new research shows it's literally "bad to the bone." If you have lousy sleep habits, your bones could be slowly crumbling right inside your body, right now! Guys, don't hit the snooze button on this one. I know bone risk SOUNDS like something...
  4. Spine drug linked to cancer risk

    It's like a nightmare, except you never get to wake up: A drug used during a common back procedure has been linked to cancer -- including one of the deadliest forms of the disease on the planet.
  5. Disturbing rise in osteoporosis fractures

    A new study shows that bone fractures in osteoporosis patients aren't just up – they've skyrocketed.
