  1. New study on Provinal Omega 7 benefits: how to keep arteries clot-free

    The incredible benefits of the ‘other’ omega

    If your omegas stop at 3, you’re stopping too soon — because there’s a new fatty acid on the block, and it’s blowing fish oil out of the water.

    It’s called Provinal omega 7, and most people outside of the medical field haven’t heard of it yet. But that’s about to change in a big way, because the emerging science on Provinal omega 7 is more exciting than anything I’ve seen since the omega 3s hit the scene years ago.

    And that’s no exaggeration.

    In one groundbreaking study at the world-famous Cleveland Clinic, mice were given Provinal omega 7 — and 12 weeks later, those in the omega-7 group had maintained much healthier arteries than the ones in the placebo group.

    The omega 7 results were so intriguing that one of the leading doctors at the Cleveland Clinic even started taking Provinal omega 7s himself.

    Think he knows something you don’t? You bet he does, but you don’t have to be a hotshot doctor to get in on this yourself — because I’m about to even the playing field by putting this superior form of Provinal omega 7 at the center of my new heart health formula, Provicor.

    Consider it our little secret, but don’t expect it to remain hush-hush much longer. The good news on Provinal omega 7 is going to hit the mainstream any day now — and when it does, it will be absolutely everywhere.

    Expect to see big media campaigns, celebrity doctors, and more all pushing their own omega 7 products. I predict this will be the biggest thing since omega-3 fatty acids.

    But while you can bet everyone will be talking about omega 7 benefits, there’s one thing you won’t hear so much about: Not all omega 7s are created equal.

    Nearly all of the omega 7s headed for the market right now are derived from plants, which can have high levels of an unhealthy saturated fat called palmitic acid and lower levels of actual omega 7.

    Provinal omega 7 is an ultra-purified form that comes from fish, not plants. That’s why it contains 22 percent more omega 7 than the seabuckthorn that’s about to flood the market — and less than 1 percent of that palmitic acid.

    Along with Provinal, my new formula also contains a powerful blend of time-tested cardiovascular superstars such as CoQ10, plant sterols, and grape seed polyphenols as well as an ancient remedy that’s getting some big-time support from modern science.

    It’s an extract of the Indian Gooseberry, and I believe it’s the Holy Grail of natural cholesterol support. Studies have shown it can help keep LDL cholesterol and triglycerides levels right where we want them…smack dab in the middle of the normal zone… and may even be able to boost levels of HDL cholesterol at the same time.

    But it’s one thing for me to sit here and tell you about this stuff. It’s quite another to see the mind-blowing results for yourself — and I’m going to give you a chance to do just that.

    Here’s the deal: Set your own expectations for what you think Provicor with Provinal omega 7 should do for you. Set them sky high — and if my new supplement doesn’t exceed them, send it back to me at any time and I’ll give you your money back.

  2. Apples can cut cholesterol levels

    An apple a day might not always keep the doctor away. But two apples might do the trick -- especially for older women.

    In a new study, postmenopausal women who ate 2.6 ounces of dried apples a day -- the equivalent of two medium fresh apples -- saw dramatic improvements in cholesterol levels.

    At three months, their levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol fell by 16 percent and their total cholesterol dropped by 9 percent. At six months, those LDL levels fell by 24 percent, and total cholesterol by 13 percent.

    They also saw a 4 percent boost in HDL ("good") cholesterol. That may not sound very big, but raising HDL levels even a little bit is often a big challenge for many people.

    Those cholesterol changes alone are impressive enough for something as simple as apples, but those weren't the only benefits. The women who ate the dried apples also lost an average of 3.3 pounds, possibly a "side effect" of the pectin in the fruit, which is known to help make people feel full.

    A control group of women given a daily helping of prunes saw slight dips in cholesterol, but nothing like what was seen among those who ate the apples. They also dropped a couple of pounds.

    And while women in both groups saw drops in their levels of C-reactive protein -- an inflammation marker linked to everything from heart disease to brain disorders -- the women who got the prunes had bigger drops in this department.

    Looks like prunes are good for more than just regularity, and I see no reason not to enjoy both prunes and apples if you like them. Just keep it moderate, since the sugar and calories can add up fast if you eat too much fruit -- especially dried fruit.

    And when it comes to apples, don't just pick up anything on sale at the supermarket. Go organic, because conventional apples have some of the highest levels of pesticides of anything in the produce aisle.

  3. Green tea can lower blood pressure

    Lower your blood pressure with every sip of healthy green tea.
  4. Diabetics should concentrate on a low-carb diet

    The best way for diabetics to get control of their blood sugar is to cut down on their carbs -- and the latest research confirms this approach.
  5. Soda scare: Sugary drinks linked to new heart risk

    Any time I use the words "soda" and "study" in the same sentence, it's never good news for soda. I can't recall a single study that shows soda benefits anything other than the bank accounts of the people who sell it. And the latest research is no exception.
  6. One more reason to drink beer

    In fact, you can get just about all the benefits of wine and then some from plain old beer -- and the latest research confirms that a cold brew is every bit as good for your heart as a glass of red.
  7. The part-time diet that really works

    Researchers put women on a low-carb diet up against women on a low-calorie diet -- but with a huge catch: The low-carb eaters would stick to the plan for just two days a week… and eat whatever they wanted the rest of the time.
  8. The next wave of cholesterol meds

    If you thought statin meds to lower LDL cholesterol were useless, you should see what they're cooking up next: drugs to raise your HDL levels.
  9. The natural way to beat inflammation

    Inflammation has gone from a condition you should worry about to a marketing buzzword used to sell everything from drugs to juice to cereal. Well, at least they got it half right: You should worry about inflammation, and do what you can to bring your own levels down.
  10. Cholesterol not linked to stroke risk

    A new study finds a huge flaw in one of the most basic reasons these drugs are prescribed: Researchers say they've found almost no connection between LDL levels and stroke risk.
