NEWS FLASH: (CBS)
A new study in the Archives of Neurology, February 20, 2004, looked
at Alzheimer's disease in almost 5,000 people age 65 or older in Utah.
Those who took vitamins were compared to those who didn't.
Medical Correspondent Dr. Emily Senay reports the study found a combination
of vitamin E and C supplements reduced the incidence of Alzheimer's
disease by about 64 percent. There was no benefit from the use of vitamin
C alone, vitamin E alone, or multivitamins alone. In the study, vitamin
E use was categorized as more than 400 international units of vitamin
E. Vitamin C use was defined as at least 500 micrograms of ascorbic
The findings suggest that vitamins E and C may offer protection against
Alzheimer's when taken together in the higher doses available from individual
supplements. Multivitamins typically contain the relatively small, recommended
daily allowance of vitamin E, usually somewhere around 22 international
units or 15 milligrams. Vitamin C in a multivitamin is normally 75 to
90 milligrams. Individual supplements of C and E contain much larger
doses of up to 1,000 international units of vitamin E and up to 1,000
milligrams or more of vitamin C.
Editor’s Note: Nature’s Sunshine Vitamin
E is natural and, thus, 5 times more effective than the synthetic
form of vitamin E, which is what is available in the drug and discount
Bioflavonoids, our premier Vitamin C product, contains 5 mg. of
vitamin C plus Bioflavonoids, which always occur with vitamin c in nature.

drugs, sugar in-take, and chronic illness can all increase the body's
need for B vitamins. B-complex supplements are especially important
for smokers, drinkers and people with erratic diets or work schedules.
Whole grains are the only natural source of B-complex, so for most people,
supplementing with this “stress vitamin” becomes very important

a B-complex supplement, make sure it includes at least 400 micrograms
of folic acid. Nutri-Calm
contains all the B vitamins and wonderful, natural herbs which support

Question of the Month: Can you combine too many different herbal combinations?
is very little concern in taking more than one combination because herbs
are classified as food. No one ever worries about combining lettuce,
carrots, potatoes, peaches, etc in one meal nor do you have to be concerned
about combining garlic, parsley, LBS II, or capsicum. Remembering that
herbs are food will help you feel confident when you take multiple combinations
and single herbs along with vitamin at one time.
and I take at least 15 products a day, many of which are already combinations
themselves and have done this for 23 years. We are way healthier and
work much harder than most people our age!”
