Can Vitamin D (Sunshine) Help Stress?

It is well known that Vitamin D protects you against the flu and cancer by supporting the immune system and supporting bone growth preventing osteoporosis. New research has revealed that Vitamin D can battle the ravages of stress. When we experience stress the body produces the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol in small doses helps us deal with difficult times and is quite healthy. Too much and prolonged levels of cortisol can restrict arteries and increase blood pressure. Vitamin D can block the enzyme that is needed to make cortisol and help us avoid the damage that too much stress can cause and help in lowering blood pressure. For most people taking 5,000 IU per day will raise your Vitamin D to the optimum level.​

What is Magnesium Depletion?

Nutritional studies regularly demonstrate that a vast segment of the American population, 65-70%, is deficient in magnesium. This is a disturbing fact since magnesium plays an essential role in a wide range of fundamental cellular reactions. More than 300 enzymes require magnesium as a cofactor. Magnesium is essential for all biosynthetic processes, formation of energy, and muscle function. Depletions in magnesium can have profound effects on cardio and skeletal muscle physiology. Rely on the Pill Box Pharmacy for all your vitamin needs.​

What is Glutathione?

One of the most important antioxidants in the body, Glutathione is present in every cell and low levels are associated with higher risks of several types of cancer. Conversely, when levels are high, cancer rates are low.Nutritionally, there are several ways to increase glutathione levels. These include: Vitamin C intake of at least 1000 mg daily on an empty stomach.N-acetyl cysteine which supplies one of the chief building blocks of glutathione, cysteine.Eating flavonoid rich foods which can raise glutathione levels in cells. Examples include such foods as broccoli, cauliflower, celery, turnips, collards, tomatoes, carrots, and most berries.​

How Do I Relieve Arthritis?

I have problems with my right knee. I was using something else to ease the pain and it didn’t help much. I apply Arthritis Stopper twice a day now and it takes the pain away. Before using Arthritis Stopper I had difficulties walking but since using it, it has helped me walk easier. I’ve used it for six or seven months now. Applying Arthritis Stopper directly to the pained area has been more effective than oral arthritis remedies. ​

Why Take ProBiotics?

If accepting tomatoes as an edible food source took over 200 years, this new concept of medical theory may take even longer. New leading-edge science is discovering that brain health and even brain disease are dictated by the bacteria in your GI tract. The balance of the good versus the bad bacteria could affect Autism, MS, depression, dementia, and obesity. One thing for sure is that balance is important. Antibiotic therapy can distort that balance by killing both good and bad bacteria in the but causing side effects such as yeast overgrowth. If taking an antibiotic, I would seriously be taking Probiotics to restore the good bacteria in the GI tract.​
