Welcome to the February edition of the Logos Health Update! The Health Food Industry is
under attack... again (see the article below). We need your help! On Feb 3rd Senator John McCain (R-AZ)
held a press conference at which he announced his intention to introduce
legislation (S. 3002) that would amend the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act
(FFDCA) in several areas that would threaten your access to dietary supplements. If you wish to help defeat this
bill, please forward this email to other friends and relatives who enjoy
having free access to health food products. Drug companies have billions of
dollars and very expensive lobbyists to push through their bills. John McCain is
their friend (according to opensecrets.org [http://www.opensecrets.org/lobby/lm_health.php ], since 2003 he has received more Big Pharma/Big Medical lobby contributions than any other member of congress ($7,690,168).
Now it appears he has decided it is payback time... not on our watch!
The health food industry's one resource is the majority of
Americans who take vitamins and health food supplements in order to stay
healthy and avoid paying for those overpriced prescriptions. Act nowand contact your representatives (see article below for easy link)!
Our second article explores how bone loss and soft tissue calcification is linked to heart disease and accelerated aging. Understanding this issue and taking appropriate action may well be the single most important thing you can do to impact your quality and quantity of life.
Our third article is an eye opening look into the science of Metabolic Typing, which goes a long way towards explaining why your neighbor's successful diet may not work well for you.

ACT NOW to Oppose the Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010
February 3, 2010, Sen. John McCain introduced his Dietary Supplement
Safety Act of 2010. Below is a discussion of how McCain's bill
threatens to dramatically change the dietary supplement industry. In
addition, because McCain's bill will fundamentally change the way
dietary supplements are regulated and force the removal of supplements
from the market that have been consumed safely for decades, we urge you
to contact your representatives to oppose this bill. Read More
Calcification and Demineralization: Twin
Terrors of the Aging Process
One of the defining
benchmarks of the aging process is the progressive movement of calcium and
other bone minerals out of the bone (demineralization) and into the soft
tissues of the body (calcification). America leads the civilized world
in bone loss and in degenerative diseases. To understand the connection,
we must first take a look at how bone loss affects the body. Read More
Metabolic Typing and its Role in Weight Loss
everywhere! Diet pills, diet drinks (uggh!), diet plans... some of
which are dangerous (especially the pills), all of which are confusing
and contradictory. Why does one diet give tremendous results to your
neighbor and make you feel like death warmed over? Or as the ancient
Roman philosopher Lucretius asked, why is it that one man's medicine is
another man's poison? According to Metabolic Typing experts like Bill
Walcott, the answer lies in your genes.Read More
MagnifiCal - For a Healthier Heart, Stronger Bones and Optimal Aging
MagnifiCal is a revolutionary mineral and herbal complex that is designed to provide multi-dimensional support for the body. In addition to providing magnesium and other nutrients that are critical to healthy muscle function (including our most important muscle, the heart), MagnifiCal provides outstanding support for strong bones and teeth. Most importantly, MagnifiCal contains nutrients that are known to support the absorption, transport and utilization of calcium out of the soft tissues and back into the bone where it belongs. How Can This Be? A Bone Health Formula With no Calcium? Contrary to popular belief, most Americans with bone loss do not have diets that are grossly deficient in calcium. What they do have is impaired calcium absorption due in large part to magnesium deficiency. Thinning of bones (demineralization) and corresponding calcification of soft tissues is one of the benchmarks of the aging process. The leaching of calcium and other minerals from the bones in order to maintain blood pH and neutralize acid wastes catches up with us in the form of osteoporosis, arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), hormonal imbalances and a multitude of other ailments. Magnesium - Most Common Mineral Deficiency It is estimated that up to eighty percent of Americans are magnesium deficient... and since magnesium is involved in over 300 metabolic functions, the signs and symptoms are everywhere. Not only have modern farming techniques depleted our soils and food sources of magnesium, but our poor lifestyle choices(alcohol, caffeine, refined carbs, high stress) place us further at peril. The need for magnesium and calcium supplementation is well established today, but typical Cal/Mag products (with their poorly absorbed mineral forms presented in the wrong ratios) are woefully inadequate. In fact, long term consumption of excessive calcium (especially in relation to magnesium) can lead to a buildup in the urinary tract and gall bladder (kidney and gall stones), and in other soft tissues. Rather than introducing massive quantities of poorly absorbed calcium into the body in hopes of it being assimilated and properly excreted (which is what modern and even alternative medicine is doing), MagnifiCal seeks to regulate calcium metabolism itself. Therefore, those who understand how the body uses bone minerals to regulate various body systems recognize MagnifiCal as the ultimate anti-aging formula! MagnifiCal has been specially developed with natural source minerals in their most concentrated and highly absorbed forms to provide the body with easy access to the critical nutrients necessary for bone growth and repair. In order to maximize absorption and synergy, multiple forms of magnesium are combined along with zinc, strontium, and boron. Vitamin B-6 (along with magnesium) inhibits the precipitation of excess calcium out of body fluids, thus retarding the formation of stones. The average American is getting about 800 mg of calcium per day from their diet, so megadosing with calcium (especially poorly absorbed forms like carbonate) is not necessary as long as sufficient magnesium is being consumed. Calcium carbonate (which is what is used in the vast majority of calcium supplements) is only about 10% bio-available because it is not water soluble. So if you take 1500 mg of calcium carbonate you are only getting 150 mg of calcium at best anyway. MagnifiCal is designed to enhance the absorption and appropriate utilization of calcium in the body, driving calcium out of the soft tissues and back into the bone. Vitamins D-3 and K-2 greatly influence the absorption, transport and utilization of calcium in the body. In fact, vitamin K-2 (MagnifiCal contains an advanced form called menaguinone-7) is necessary for the production of osteocalcin, the glue-like protein that binds calcium into the bone matrix. Silicon, another key bone matrix mineral, is provided through the addition of horsetail extract. Bromelain, Betaine and Bioperine have been added for their proven ability to enhance systemic absorption of nutrients. For obvious reasons, this product may hold vast potential in the field of anti-aging medicine. MagnifiCal completes the Burgstiner Wellness Protocol on the same terms it began ten years ago... with an avant guarde, outside the box kind of supplement that addresses foundational pathways of human metabolism. Caution: Persons with known kidney impairment should use caution in taking magnesium supplements and should do so only under the advice and care of their medical practitioner.

Cholest Essentials - Lower Cholesteral Naturally Without Side Effects! Designed to lower total cholesterol and support healthy fat metabolism, Cholest Essentials contains some of the most well studied natural herbs and nutrients that are known to safely normalize blood lipid levels without the dangerous side effects of statin drugs. No-flush niacinamide, garlic, cayenne and policosanol have long been prized for their cholesterol lowering effects. More recent studies indicate that plant sterols and gugul sterones may also hold significant promise in reducing risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol, triglycerides, and inflammation.
According to studies, for every five percent that blood cholesterol levels are reduced, there's an on-average two percent reduction in the risk of coronary heart disease. With the Logos Satisfaction Guarantee you have nothing to lose, so try a bottle of Cholest Essentials today!
Ubinol CoQ10 - Supercharge Cellular Energy Systems
Ubinol CoQ10 - Much has been made of the critical support role that Coenzyme Q10 plays in cellular energy production and therefore in cardiology and anti-aging medicine. So fundamental is it to our metabolism that once discovered, it was named ubiquinone which literally means "occuring everywhere".
Though it is present in every cell of the body, it is especially concentrated in the very active cells of the heart. CoQ10 neutralizes free radicals and is the rate limiting enzyme for cellular ATP production (the fuel that runs cellular energy processes).
As we age, our ability to efficiently process or reduce ubiquinone gradually diminishes, especially when vital enzyme systems are compromised by the use of cholesterol lowering (statin) or other drugs.
Statins are known to decrease average serum CoQ10 levels by 40% (which is why they are so destructive to liver, muscle, gastrointestinal and brain function). Since statins are now the top selling category of pharmaceuticals worldwide, it is no wonder that CoQ10 (the natural antidote to most of their horrible side effects) is one of the top five most popular supplements.
However, most people are unaware that not only is CoQ10 very poorly absorbed, in order for the body to put ubiquinone to work, it must be converted to its fully reduced form called ubiquinol.
In other words, Not all CoQ10 Supplements are the Same!
A mountain of research has been done in recent years in an effort to improve the absorption potential of CoQ10. Many different approaches have been tried to overcome ubiquinone's poor absorption problem, as researchers found that increasing the dose only further decreased its absorption rate.
Then the breakthrough came. Researchers in Japan found that ubiquinol is up to eight times more effective than ubiquinone in achieving equivalent serum CoQ10 levels. That means 50mg of ubiquinol may pack the same therapeutic punch of up to 400 mg of regular CoQ10!
Each gelcap of Ubinol CoQ10 contains 50 mg of pure high absorption ubiquinol that is ready to energize your cells and revitalize your metabolism. With the Logos Satisfaction Guarantee you have nothing to lose but misery and fatigue, so try a bottle of Ubinol CoQ10 today!
