Folate vitamin shown to reduce high blood pressure in women


Folate, a vitamin already known for its power to prevent birth defects, also appears to reduce the risk of high blood pressure in women young and old.

The breast cancer drug tamoxifen may cause a slight increase in stroke risk, says a Duke University Medical Center study in the Oct. 12 issue of Neurology.

Most people who have obesity surgery not only lose a lot of weight but experience marked improvements in health problems that are part and parcel of being extremely overweight.

A new review of studies on the procedure finds that "a substantial majority" of obese people who underwent it recuperated from diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension and obstructive sleep apnea.

Moreover, many "experienced complete resolution," said the review in the Oct. 13 Journal of the American Medical Association.

Teens who have insulin resistance could be more likely to suffer from high blood pressure in adulthood, new research suggests.

Because high blood pressure is a known risk for cardiovascular disease, the finding could help spot children who face a higher risk for heart problems later in life, Dr. Alan Sinaiko, the study author, reported.



Absorption of Liquid Vitamins

"Liquids, aside from offering the obvious benefit of being easy to swallow, have another very important trait. According to the Physicians Desk Reference,

Liquid is absorbed at a 98% rate, versus

Only 10 – 20% in hard capsules or tablet forms.

This very important distinction is extraordinarily important. It is not uncommon to have [hard] capsules pass right through the body in a way that the product name is still visible after the pill has left the body completely. This does not happen with liquids, as they are absorbed completely and are not wasted."

The National Advisory Board states that:

'100 mg consumed in tablet form translates to a minute stabilized 8.3 mg or 8.3% concentrated in the blood.'

This is simply not the case with liquids!"

"Pills and capsules may cost less, but in reality you get far less absorption for your money. No wonder they cost less!

Liquids are fast--you do not even have to wait for them to dissolve. They start working as soon as you swallow and

Many have very pleasant flavors."
