The holidays are fast approaching. This week we pause to celebrate and contemplate our many blessings as we observe Thanksgiving, one of the national traditions that marks our country as one that has been planted, nurtured and protected by our Creator. The concepts of liberty, freedom and equality before God that are ingrained in our society, our heritage and indeed our constitution come from God's word.
Regardless of our beliefs, we all benefit from having a thankful attitude. Accordingly, our first article highlights ten things we can all be thankful for. As you celebrate this season of Thanksgiving, remember the trials and suffering of those around you and seek ways to be a blessing to them.
Should probiotics be taken with food or on an empty stomach? This question is asked often, so we decided to address it for you here, so read on!
We urge you to ACT NOW to protect your health freedom and your right to grow your own food by contacting your senators today to oppose Senate Bill (S.510), the Food Safety Modernization Act. Last month we asked for
your help in sharing your experiences with (and links to) our products
on the internet. We have added a new social media tool to our website (top nav bar) to make it easier for you to do that. We have also added a new Logos Product Review feature that enables you to share feedback about any Logos product directly on the product page (and you can even win a free product of your choice when you do). Simply put, if you believe in the mission and ministry
of Logos, please share it with the world so we can help others like
you! We rejoice in serving you. Contact us with your questions, keep us posted on your progress, and please let me know if we fail to exceed your expectations.

In our life, we sometimes spend too much time complaining about the
things we do not like or have. Today and every day we need to take time
to be thankful for the blessings we do have. Take a look at this list
of 10 things we are should be thankful for:
Thankful for family that raised us
We are all where we are today because our parents or guardians raised
us. Hopefully, we have taken all the positive lessons from them and
are applying them to our lives.
Thankful for the families we have
If you are married and have children, be thankful for the blessing of
your family. If you are single, be thankful for your parents, aunts,
uncles and grandparents.
Be thankful for friends
True friends encourage us, motivate us and push us to do better.
Take time to call them and thank them for all the great things they have
done. Show your gratitude by also being a great friend to others.
Be thankful for a roof over your head
If you have home, be thankful you have a place to rest and relax.
Hopefully your home is also a place of safety and encouragement. Truly
show you are thankful for your home by helping organizations who help
those who have no homes.
Be thankful for laughter
Laughter is a gift from God which can bring great joy. Be thankful for the laughter of children, a spouse or friends.
Be thankful for a job
A job is a great blessing, whether we are happy in the job we are in
or not. Take the time to list out reasons you are thankful for your
job. If you find this hard, don t look at your job just as a means to
make money, but look at it as a way to help people.
Be thankful for the freedoms you have
We have so many freedoms other countries do not have and it has cost
some men and women their lives. This freedom continues to cost others
time away from family and bodily injuries. Take time today to say
thank you to someone who helped or is helping protect those freedoms
Be thankful for those who have made a positive impact in your life
All of us have had people in our lives that have made a positive
impact. It may be a teacher, coach, pastor, youth worker, Sunday school
teacher, and, hopefully, family members. Be thankful these people were
placed in your life and give to others as they have given to you.
Be thankful for nourishment
We should be thankful we have the opportunity to eat on a daily
basis. If you have plenty, please show your thanks by helping to
support agencies who try to care for the hungry.
Be thankful for your health
If you are reading this, you are probably a person in good health.
Be thankful for that. However, there are probably people in your family
and community not as fortunate. So take time to help them sometime
Should Probiotics Be Taken With Food?
There is considerable confusion and debate over how to best
take probiotics, the beneficial bacteria that are so critical to our immunity
and digestive health.Some natural
health practitioners recommend that probiotics be taken on an empty stomach to
avoid provoking a fresh release of caustic digestive secretions (which includes
bile salts, digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid).
Others point out that our Creator designed the human stomach
to maintain a very low pH (high acidity) at all times, not only to facilitate
protein digestion and mineral absorption, but as a front line of defense
against pathogens that enter the body through the mouth.Furthermore, since our natural intended
source of probiotics is raw and/or fermented foods, it seems obvious that we
were designed to derive our essential flora from our diet.
It is interesting that God doesn't use microencapsulation
technology or enteric coating to deliver probiotics through the harsh
environment of the stomach and into the GI tract.Like everything in nature, it is a numbers
game; and to the survivors go the legacy.When probiotics are ingested whether in raw or fermented foods or in
supplements not all of them make it to the lining of the intestine where they
perform their vital role in health.
In recent years, growing interest and research into
beneficial bacteria has produced probiotic strains that are more acid and
temperature stable.Strides have also
been made in the area of microencapsulation so that phthalates and other toxic
substances are being used with less frequency, but again, with few exceptions
(highly specific strains and applications), those types of delivery systems are not necessary.
As to the ongoing debate over whether probiotics
are best taken with food, what is most important is that they are taken, and
regularly.A healthy balance of
intestinal flora is one of the most foundational of all criteria for efficient
digestion, strong immunity and vibrant health.
Draconian Food Safety Modernization Act (S.510) Clears First Hurdle
Early last week, by a vote of 74 to 25, the U.S. Senate voted
for cloture on Senate Bill 510, the so called Food Safety Modernization Act, which means it
must now be voted on in the full Senate within 60 days. All amendments
to the controversial food control bill must be completed by that time.
S.510 has been referred to by opponents as the most dangerous bill
in the history of the United States of America . If it passes, it will
grant the government sweeping new authority over the public s right to
grow, trade and transport foods. It will strengthen the existing large
multi-national corporate monopoly over the food supply by imposing
overwhelming paperwork burdens and expenses on small farmers and criminalizing the saving of seeds, even by back yard gardeners!
The bill corrodes U.S. sovereignty over our food supply and severely
threatens your health freedom by ceding authority to the World Trade
Organization (WTO) and Codex Alimentarius paving the way to restricting
our access to critical life saving nutrients in therapeutic doses.
Listen to this: supporters of this bill are masquerading it as a
solution to the pervasive problem of food smuggling into the U.S. " are
you kidding me? Food smuggling into the U.S.? Read further into the
bill and you find out that it considers back yard gardens a source of
smuggling food into our country!
Better not grow those tomatoes next year unless you are prepared for a
visit from the Department of Homeland Security what a monumental waste
of resources! Speaking of resources, if this bill is passed, the cost
to taxpayers is estimated to be 1.6 Billion dollars.
If you value your health freedom and your right to grow your own
food, contact your senators today and voice your strong opposition to
this dangerous and foolhardy bill.
How to protest Senate Bill 510
1) Go to Congress.org and type in your zip code in the box in the upper right hand corner.
2) Click on your Senator s name, and then on the contact tab for
their phone number. You can also call the Capitol Switchboard and ask to
be directly connected to your Senator s office: 202-224-3121.
3) Once connected ask to speak to the legislative staff person
responsible for agriculture. If they are unavailable leave a voice mail
message. Be sure to include your name and phone number. Give them this
message in support of the "Tester Amendment" which would exempt small
farms from S.510:
"I am a constituent of Senator___________. I ask that he/she support
the Tester Amendment to the food safety bill. The Tester Amendment will
exempt the safest, small, owner-operator farms and food facilities and
farmers who direct market their products to consumers, stores or
restaurants. Food safety legislation should not create inappropriate and
costly regulatory barriers to family farms and the growing healthy food
movement in the drive to crack down on corporate bad actors. Please
support the Tester Amendment and market opportunities for small and
mid-sized family farms, and small food processing facilities."
You may also wish to explain that you oppose the Food Safety Modernization Act
in its entirety, and it is a destructive, freedom-crushing law that
will destroy the future of food and undermine health freedom in America.

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
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. To learn more about the role of
strong bones in your health, read the Strong
Bones article on this site.
