4 Answers To Living Life On Lifes Terms

1. What supplements do you take?

A multivitamin, Glucosamine-MSM-Chondroitin, Odorless Garlic, Omega 3 Fish Oil, Glutamine, Alpha Lipoic Acid and B Complex - extra B-12.

These are the supplements I am taking for six months. I will reevaluate with blood tests and consultation. I will most likely add more antioxidants and anti-aging supplements due to my age and my Rheumatoid Arthritic condition: i.e. Ginkgo Biloba, CoQ10 and silymarin. When I add three vitamins-I also drop three.

2. What is your favorite healthy snack?

Fruit. I buy a week's worth of fruit each week at the store. I cut all the fruit up and put into plastic bags in the refrigerator. Each morning I eat a 16 ounce bowl of fruit for breakfast. Anytime I crave sweets- I have fresh fruit instead. I also love dried fruit (without sugar and unsulphured) between meal snacks. Oh yes, I also love almonds.

3. What do you do to keep up your energy?

Active exercise - my favorite is water aerobics. During the summer I swim 3 to 4 times a week. During the winter months I swim indoors, walk, or use the glider.

4. What advice do you find yourself dispensing most commonly to your family and friends?

Get on your knees and pray each morning-ask for God's will in your life. Do things for others. Say you are sorry when you are wrong - do not hold grudges. Be honest and say what's on your mind. Stay in love with family, friends and pets.

Supplements of the Month

Vitamin E 400 d-Alpha

'Take Your Vitamins' brand of Vitamin E is a fat soluble antioxidant vitamin that helps to neutralize potentially damaging free radicals in our bodies. Vitamin d-Alpha tocopherol is composed of alpha, beta, gamma and delta vitamins having unique biological effects, with generally declining activity; e.g. delta is far less active than the alpha form.

As a supplement, Vitamin E has a number of health benefits for the body. Vitamin E is particularly important for the protection of our cell membranes as well as keeping your skin, heart, circulation, nerves, muscles and red blood cells healthy.

Antioxidants such as vitamin E protect your cells against the effects of dangerous free radicals, potentially damaging by-products of your body's metabolism. Free radicals can cause cell damage that may lead to the development of cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Vitamin E may also reduce cellular aging, inhibit the potentially damaging effects of the sun, thus inhibit melanoma (skin cancer) cell growth, and aid in the prevention of abnormal blood clotting.

100 IU or more of supplemental vitamin E a day has been shownto reduce the risk of heart attacks in healthy people. If you have pre-existing coronary artery disease it is recommended you take 800 to 1600 IU a day of Vitamin E. Vitamin E also may help prevent the formation of blood clots, which could lead to a heart attack.

Studies have linked lower rates of heart disease with higher vitamin E intake.
