Highlighted Supplement of the Week: Choline.

Choline is an essential nutrient linked to so many incredible health benefits, but chances are you haven’t heard much about it.

Choline plays an important role in many processes in your body, including fat and cholesterol transport, energy metabolism, and cell and nerve signalling. According to some recent studies, choline is associated with a reduced risk of dementia. There is also evidence that a choline-rich diet builds stronger bones and a higher intake of choline is also associated with a reduced risk of heart and liver disease.

Although it is produced by your body naturally, it's important to supplement with foods rich in choline such as eggs, meat, fish and dairy, as well as some green vegetables, fruits and whole grains.

Standard Proces also makes a choline supplement. We test your body for it with Natural Response Testing.

Our Health Workshops - The Natural Health and Healing Center

There are plenty of weight-loss diets and plans that focus on calories without any consideration for nurition or what humans are hard-wired to eat. The abundance and often contradictory information about food and weight loss is confusing and overwhelming.

Most of these diets an plans ignore the reality of how the body works, and what it needs to thrive. They can be very removed from the normal biology of human beings.

An important development: The American Academy of Pediatrics is urging families to limit the use of plastic food containers, cut down on processed meat during pregnancy and consume more whole fruits and vegetables rather than processed food to limit children's exposure to chemicals in food and food packaging.

"Among the chemicals that raised particular concern are nitrates and nitrites, which are used as preservatives, primarily in meat products; phthalates, which are used to make plastic packaging; and bisphenols, used in the lining of metal cans for canned food products. Also of concern to the pediatricians are perfluoroalkyl chemicals, or PFCs, used in grease-proof paper and packaging, and perchlorates, an antistatic agent used in plastic packaging."
