    A series of tweets disseminated by Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher on Saturday, praising a “favorite supplement of many of my teammates and fellow athletes,” struck an anti-doping expert as nothing more than “marketing ploy” and raised no concerns regarding illegal performance-enhancing substances.Swisher, whose home-run production this season – 29 – is perfectly in line with his six-season average in the major leagues, declared, “Y’all need to check this stuff out. … This stuff will do the trick,” and directed Twitter readers to a Web site for gHP Sport.The product’s company, SomaLife of Cape Coral, Fla., claims that gHP Sport is a nutritional supplement that, taken orally, “allows the pituitary gland to produce agents that assist in cell regeneration and repair.” NPROS.com described gHP Sport as “marketed as an athletic performance enhancement product [but] verified to contain NO athletic banned substances.”Aside from the recent Swisher endorsements, a collection of former professional athletes, including basketball’s Jerry Lucas, baseball’s Gary Carter and football’s Jim McMahon, can be found in on-line video testimonials for gHP.

Vitamin D

The BIG question…how much do we need?

The Sunshine Vitamin, in more ways than one. Emerging research has highlighted Vitamin D as one of the most important factors for good health. Most of us are aware that our skins make it in sunlight and that it is important for bone growth, development, and maintenance.

What has become realized lately is that vitamin D is really a hormone and has important roles to play in many other areas of our lives. Deficiency leaves us vulnerable to many problems, not just bone problems. Recent research reveals Vitamin D has an important role to play in preventing the growth and progression of cancer cells, particularly in colon and prostate cancers, but is also protective in breast, lung, ovarian, stomach, bladder, esophageal and kidney
cancers.

Vitamin D influences the effects of insulin, renin, serotonin and estrogen, all important hormones involved with Diabetes, hypertension, brain function and female well being respectively, so one can see its emerging importance. It also can affect obesity through Leptin, reduce inflammation in bone conditions and teeth disease and strengthen theimmune system, so how do we get enough of this “Wonder Vitamin”?Well firstly we need to know what we need. The old recommendations of up to 600 IU daily depending on age are now thought to be
outdated so the new value is at least 1,000 IU daily (it is safe up to 10,000 IU daily but there is
no point in going beyond 2,000 IU).

There are dietary sources of Vitamin D, some quite good, cod liver oil for example (ugh) provides 1360 IU per tablespoon but a cup of milk a bit surprisingly only 100 IU, so it is difficult to get your 1,000 units a day this way, although dietary Vitamin D (about 3 or 400 units a day for most of us helps a bit. Sunlight…now this is the real source for us. Wandering around in a tee shirt for ½ an hour or so in the summer will produce about 2,000 units from facial and arm skin, which is lots. Unfortunately if you live above the 30th parallel (yes, that’s you in LA too!) you will not get enough Vitamin D in the winter and the further north you get the longer you will need to supplement.

Our current recommendations are that everyone in northern latitudes, (remember that’s north of 30), should supplement with 1,000 IU daily from September until the end of May. ProVit Xcell + contains 1,000 IU plus lots of other good things). If you want to do the sun thing properly, apply your sun tan lotion only immediately before you go out in the sun as it takes 20 or 30 minutes to work. Darker skinned people or people who tan easily can apply it after 20 or 30 minutes in the sun (unless you live near the equator!). If you do that then you will get enough with your supplements at other times of the year. One last thought…if you sit outside with no sun tan lotion (it blocks UVB) for 20 minutes in a bathing suit you will produce more Vitamin D than you get from 100 glasses of milk!

  • What’s an ORAC score?
    Posted on Tuesday, September 15th, 2009 in On Call 24/7 w/Dr. White – Comments: (0)
    Dr. White has been known to talk about antioxidants and the need to protect our cells and how nature has given us powerful weapons in the cell protection armoury in the shape of the ones we make ourselves and the ones that we have to get from our diet. Additionally I mentioned that animals’ cells need protection too and the fact that we use a standard called the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) unit to measure the antioxidant potential of any given substance with antioxidant properties, and there are many, ranging from the three intracellular ones to vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and a host of others. Antioxidants, as we now know, ward off the attacks of the free radicals produced from energy production in our cells. If we do not have sufficient antioxidant protection our cells suffer damage to all of their components including the DNA. We minimize that damage with the right combination of self-produced and dietary sourced protection.

The Vanishing Youth Nutrient

The Vanishing Youth Nutrient

Science writer Susan Allport unravels why the disappearance of omega-3s from our diet may be responsible for the epidemics of obesity, heart disease and cancer. Oh, and wrinkles, too. By Susan Allport, Prevention

When Lisa Kepp (her name has been changed to protect privacy) was 2 years old, she was diagnosed with a neurological condition. She had not said a word in her short life—and it wasn’t for want of trying. Lisa was so frustrated at not being able to form the words she clearly wanted to say that she flew into temper tantrums four or five times a day. The family was on pins and needles waiting for the next time the little girl would explode.

A pediatric neurologist diagnosed verbal apraxia, a speech disorder, and recommended that she receive intensive speech therapy. He suggested no other treatment. Lisa’s mother had heard, though, about studies linking omega-3 fatty acids to intelligence and healthy brains, and she thought she’d give them a try. She purchased a bottle of Nordic Naturals’ Children’s DHA in liquid form and began putting half a teaspoon in her daughter’s orange juice every morning. Within a week, the young girl was babbling and her tantrums stopped. Amazed, her mother spoke to the doctors, but none of them would engage her, as she puts it, in a conversation about omega-3s. So Lisa continued speech therapy—and her omega-3s—for a year and will be starting preschool this fall with her peers.

A happy anecdote, to be sure. Ask any scientist, though, and he will admit that without testing, we can’t be certain that omega-3s fueled Lisa’s recovery. But he can point to a growing body of scientific literature that touts the benefits of omega-3 supplementation. Studies show that these special fatty acids accumulate in the brain and can aid children with learning disabilities, reduce violence in prison populations, and even improve everyday mood.

We can only obtain these fats through our diet. They are essential to the development of healthy brains and other metabolically active tissues. Indeed, research from the world’s top universities shows that these fats do much more than regulate our brains: They can also lower risk of heart disease, arthritis, and cancer. They even help fight wrinkles and may block fat-cell formation.

How could omega-3s possibly be this powerful? Scientists believe it’s because Americans are suffering from a widespread deficiency. A recent study conducted by Dariush Mozaffarian, M.D., of the Harvard School of Public Health, found that the absence of these fatty acids in our diet is responsible annually for up to 96,000 premature deaths in this country. Scientists, however, are learning that fixing this nutritional deficiency is a bit more complicated than simply telling people to eat more fish.

Our collective omega-3 deficiency …

Every once in a while, a discovery comes along that changes everything about the way we see the world. In the early 16th century, Nicolaus Copernicus had such a moment when he discovered that Earth was not the center of the universe. Our new understanding of essential fats is that kind of discovery, and I was lucky enough, as a science writer, to make a small-yet-key contribution. While researching a book on omega-3s, I realized that the essential fats—the omega-3s and their close cousins, the omega-6s—change with the seasons. It might sound like a small idea, but it may soon fundamentally change the way you think about food.

First, let’s start with omega-3s, what I’ll call the spring fats. These are likely the most abundant fats in the world, but they don’t originate in fish, as many believe. Rather, they are found in the green leaves of plants. Fish are full of omega-3s because they eat phytoplankton (the microscopic green plants of the ocean) and seaweed. In plants, these special fatty acids help turn sunlight into sugars, the basis of life on Earth. The spring fats speed up metabolism. They are fats that animals (humans included) use to get ready for times of activity, like the mating season. They’re found in the highest concentrations in all the most active tissues: brains, eyes, hearts, the tails of sperm, the flight muscles of hummingbirds. Because fish have so many of these fats in their diets, they can be active in cold, dark waters. These fats protect our brains from neurological disorders and enable our hearts to beat billions of times without incident. But they are vanishing from our diet, and you’ll soon understand why.
