Do herbal supplements need tighter regulations?

"14 state attorneys general on Thursday asked the U.S. Congress to investigate the herbal supplements industry after a New York probe of the products turned up ingredients that were not listed on labels and raised safety concerns."

Should all supplements be pharmaceutical grade? Would the industry be taken more seriously if that were the case?

Everyone likes the fat-fighting nutrients

Ellagic acid is plant polyphenol antioxidant. This study suggests it may play beneficial role in fat metabolism.

There are no magic supplements for weight loss. You need to think about your lifestyle as a whole. Eat real food and do not rely on a single supplement.

Study - Older men do better spreading protein out over the course of a day

Rather than wolfing down most of your protein at the evening meal, this study suggests , along with resistance training, it is best to consume your daily protein requirement in roughly equal amounts throughout the day. 

We would also add some extra protein post work out.

Plant pigments known as anthocyanins support a stop to prediabetes

The early phases of #prediabetes begin with insulin resistance, a pro-inflammatory internal environment and lipids ("different types of cholesterol") gettin' a bit out of whack.

If this progresses, blood sugar levels get more difficult for your body to control and an official diagnosis of type 2 diabetes is made and medication is advised.

Recent research on diabetics show that a class of flavonoids known as anthocyanins have "beneficial metabolic effects in subjects with type 2 diabetes by improving dyslipidemia, enhancing antioxidant capacity, and preventing insulin resistance."  (http://goo.gl/1tk1C0)

There is no magic supplement to improve your metabolism in the face of prediabetes or diabetes. It takes devoted lifestyle change including eating properly, moving adequately and sleeping well.

An exceptional flavonoid supplement containing proanthocyanidins among other supportively beneficial compounds can be found here:

Will U.S. consumers buy food products that don't look as appealing?

Nestle is reducing the degree of artificial coloring. This is positive for the quality of their product as it reduces the potentail harm that articial colors can promote in people who consume these products regularly - albeit probably less harm than the added sugar in these products - however will consumers go for this?

Does glucosamine & chondroitin help painful arthritis?

The research has been mixed, but here's some support for glucosamine & chondroitin (G & C) for painful #arthritis . This study compares its benefit to a pharmacy anti-inflammatory medicine that goes by the trade name Celebrex.

Reasonable advice regarding G & C is to try it for 3-6 months and see how you do. If there is no notable benefit, better to put your money elsewhere. 

For a more natural, real food approach, bone broth makes for a good joint support formula.

Astaxanthin supplementation helps exercising rats

Astaxanthin appears to target the mitochondria promoting physical endurance.

While we wholeheartedly support scientific research on nutrients and nutrition, enough already with the skinny mice and physically fit rats.

We understand the tremendous difficulties regarding human research, but how about at least considering more research at the level of various human tissue cultures? Would the conclusions regarding human health from this research be any more valid than those from mice and rats?
