Tired all the time? Is your life force ebbing away?

Have you tried CoQ10 ubiquinol?  Gaining popularity in the supplement scene, and no wonder, CoQ10 ubiquinol, the reduce form, as opposed to the oxidized form, is a key component in human energy production. Capable of donating electrons, CoQ10 ubiquinol functions as a highly effective antioxidant, helping your body produce Vitamin C and Vitamin E, as well as generating cellular energy. Dr. Dave’s Best CoQ10, a highly bioavailable, fat soluble antioxidant, takes its cues from your metabolism, meeting your requirements on an as needed basis.  If you’re battling chronic disease states, absorption goes up. If you’re steady state healthy, your lower requirements translate into less absorption. This means no chance of overdose, just effective, modulated delivery, designed to meet your specific...

Can you flip your metabolic switch, naturally?

When it comes to balancing your sugar and managing cholesterol, the answer is “YES”! There are compounds, created by Mother Nature, to help stabilize both, safely and effectively.  For over thousands of years, Eastern herbal medicine has used berberine, an extract from the barberry root, as a powerful metabolic switch, to keep blood sugar stabilized, within healthy ranges.  Modern clinical research has validated this history, with double blind, placebo-controlled tests, indicating the positive effects of berberine, on both blood fats and sugars, by looking at over 100 test subjects, over a three-month period.  All of the test subjects started out with challenges in regulating their glucose, cholesterol and/or triglycerides. The results were nothing short of dramatic.  All of the patients...

Are you setting the stage for the health of your children?

Current studies on the health of our children, specifically our adolescents and young teens, are very disturbing, particularly those that look at the vascular health of young people, while also looking at blood pressure, body fat, weight and diabetes, as well as other parameters we generally associate with inflammation in the body. The villain, as usual is inflammation, causing many chronic diseases we used to associate only with aging, but now it’s crossed generations.

Are we chasing the wrong villain, with the wrong weapon?

For years, physicians, numerous studies and of course, the internet, have cautioned against certain dietary habits and their consequences.  Now it looks like the problem is misidentified and the current therapy is ineffective at best and at times, possibly deadly.  f you’ve been brainwashed into believing that dietary cholesterol is the main culprit in heart disease and statins are the answer, you may be surprised to know that more recent research shows that the problem isn’t really cholesterol, it’s high sugar and that statins aren’t helpful except, possibly in dire circumstances. The sugar industry has a vested interest in telling us the white stuff is harmless and we should get about one quarter of our calories per day from sugar. ...

Harness the power of berries

Mother Nature’s bounty to the rescue again, with tiny berries chock full of antioxidants   When you’re just passing through the kitchen, how often do you grab a handful of choke berries or black currants? How about snacking on a bowl of them in front of the TV or serving them at a picnic? Probably never, because choke berries aren’t very tasty and black currants are hard to find.   None the less, if you could, ingesting berries like these are great for your heart.   Your blood vessels are lined by a single layer of cells called the endothelium, a dynamic “organ” whose job is to adjust your blood vessel diameter and wall thickness, expanding and contracting to accommodate...
