Nutrition Hints from Betty Kamen, PhD, and Dr. Michael Rosenbaum, MD - Ulcers and NSAIDs

Many older patients in the United States use both over-the-counter or prescription traditional NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as Tylenol, etc.) plus doses of aspirin (for supposed heart protection). Such patients are at the highest risk for ulcer disease and its complications [often death if the bleeding can’t be stopped], but this fact is underappreciated by clinicians.
H. pylori infection is associated with a more than 2-fold increased risk of bleeding peptic ulcer among chronic NSAIDs users. In other words, H pylori infection and increasing cumulative NSAID use increase the risks of peptic ulcers. The risk of serious GI toxicity related to NSAIDs appears to increase as one increases their aspirin doses.
Ulcer healing occurs in most with either discontinuation of the NSAID and/or eradication of the infection.

Notes: According to a report published in the American Journal of Medicine, more than 100,000 patients are hospitalized every year for gastrointestinal (GI) complications resulting from the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil) and naproxen. In addition, at least 16,500 NSAID-related deaths occur each year, just among arthritis patients alone.

Triple Relief

NSP’s Triple Relief (Stock # 1851-3) contains a blend of herbs that have shown to provide effective pain-relief for inflammatory disorders such as low back pain and arthritis. Triple Relief provides a powerful combination of herbs that have demonstrated the ability to selectively inhibit COX-2 activity, as well as the ability to block the production of other substances that sustain inflammatory conditions once they are triggered. Also, unlike NSAIDs, Triple Relief helps relieve pain and inflammation without causing gastrointestinal irritation or damage and without contributing to the deterioration of joint cartilage. Triple Relief contains Nexrutine, a natural plant extract that has been found to Cox-2 inhibition properties, Boswellia, a valued Ayurvedic (Indian) herb and Willow Bark extract.

“Triple Relief is the Best for my Joints”
“Triple Relief is the best thing I’ve ever used for helping with joint and muscle discomfort. And it didn’t upset my intestinal system. I shared a bottle with my mother and we were fighting for the last pill!”
-Pat Bogacz, Omaha, Neb.

“Triple Relief Works!”
“I began feeling better within 30 minutes after taking Triple Relief. This product worked more quickly and with fewer pills than anything I have used in the past.”
-Cynthia Potter, KS

Triple Relief Gets Susan’s Stamp of Approval
“I’m delighted with the results. There has been a marked reduction in muscle pain. This is the best all-natural pain formula I have ever used, and it doesn’t just relieve the pain, it helps me feel better, too! If you have muscular pain, please try some and see for yourself." -Susan Lebovitz, West Union, OH

Nature’s Sea Calcium offers another option for calcium supplementation

Nature’s Sunshine now offers Nature’s Sea Calcium, a natural calcium plus 70 trace minerals from the sea. This product, which is harvested off the southwest coast of Ireland where there are no pollutants, is better absorbed than Coral Calcium because it contains FOS, a probiotic which improves calcium absorption. Nature’s Sea Calcium is available in powdered form to mix in juice or water, stock # 1576-9, or capsules, stock # 1577-5.

Media Misinformation About Echinacea - Another Blow to Truth in Reporting

The media is saying that this federally funded, double-blinded study found that Echinacea was useless in preventing or treating colds. This study was funded by a branch of the National Institutes of Health and led by a researcher who has consulted with makers of antibiotics in the past. So why am I saying it wasn't a good study?
** They used the wrong species. This study used extracts made from the roots of Echinacea angustifolia. Studies on the flowers and roots of Echinacea purpurea show it is effective.
** They didn't use enough. The college students in this study were given 300 mg of E. angustifolia a day. The World Health Organization (WHO) says that 3 GRAMS (3,000 mg) a day is the proper dosage for this species.
** The participants were young and probably had strong immune systems. A better study would have included older people with more compromised immunity. After all, if Echinacea boosts immunity, it has a greater effect on people with lowered immunity than those who are not compromised. - Dr. Nan Fuchs

Are You Taking Your Vitamins?

Make your vitamin regimen part of your daily routine: wake up, warm up, exercise, stretch, brush your teeth, eat a healthful breakfast and take your vitamins. At first, the changes may be so subtle that you can't pick out a particular result (although most people do experience increased energy and immune function). In fact, you may not be aware of the benefits until you're in old age, when you realize that you're in better shape than your contemporaries.
NSP now offers VitaWave, a liquid vitamin, Stock # 3332-3 as well as Super Supplemental with or without iron.


“I had a Bed & Breakfast guest arrive from Florida. She had been flying all day and had an awful stomach ache and lots of gas. She had taken something for it that did not touch it. I happened to have some Activated Charcoal on hand which I had bought to try that test of taking 10 capsules and then wait to see how long the black stools appeared—showing the amount of transit time for my bowels.
“I gave her 4 Activated Charcoal capsules and her some Peppermint Oil to rub on her abdomen. She came up from her room ten minutes later smiling, telling me that she felt wonderful. It worked that fast!”
- Phyllis Young, Honolulu, HI

“My mother received her blood work tests back last week after being on the 90 day challenge for the full three months. Her fasting blood glucose levels are down to 110, the lowest she has been since being diagnosed as a diabetic over 4 years ago. In addition, her triglycerides and LDL are down. The only thing she has done differently besides the supplements for the 90 day challenge is to begin a regular exercise routine. What a wonderful combination of supplements!” - Nicole Bandes, Phoenix, AZ
