What Does "MADE IN THE USA" Mean for Supplements?

October 08, 2014

I recently got an email from a customer asking this specific question regarding one of our products, Nutribiotics Defense Plus.  While this email was specific to one company, it goes to the heart of how we choose our brands.  Here's my answer... Good question!  I didn’t know the exact answer so I call the manufacturer.  I know that they have been the leaders in grapefruit seed extract (GSE; the primary ingredient in Defense Plus) for 30 years and we have a huge repeat business for their products, especially Defense Plus.  Margaret recommends Defense Plus regularly during cold and flu season.   Anyway, based on my conversation with the manufacturer, Nutribiotics is located in California and has multiple US-based manufacturing plants...

Food Allergies In Children May Be Caused By Antibiotics

September 26, 2014

Food allergies have nearly tripled in the last 20 years.  A microbiologist from New York University has been researching this trend and has developed a hypothesis that use of antibiotics beginning early in life is reducing the beneficial gut flora (probiotics) thus weakening the person's immune system and leaving them more susceptible to food allergies.   From the article... "Blaser’s (the microbiologist) theory has been tested on young mice. They were fed a strong dose of antibiotics, and soon after their immune system changed and they developed a peanut allergy. They were then given the missing positive bacteria, and the results were astounding: The allergy was gone!" Here's a link to the original article.  Here is a link to Blaser's...

Artificial Sweeteners Linked to Obesity

September 18, 2014

A recent study showed that artificial sweeteners do not prevent obesity but may actually promote metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes.  Calorie-free sweeteners are often used to lower caloric intake and are commonly thought not to raise blood sugar levels.  In a recent issue of the journal Nature, researchers reported that artificial sweeteners increased the blood sugar levels in both mice and humans by interfering with microbes in the gut.  More research needs to be done but the research so far has been highly indicative of a relationship between the intake of artificial sweeteners and blood sugar intolerance; a precursor to metabolic diseases.  Here's a link to the original article.

Latest Evidence of the Decline of "Certified Organic"

September 13, 2014

There have been a couple of recent events that highlight the gradual but persistent pressure of corporate influence on putting profits before quality in the "certified organic" industry.  This week, Annie's, the organic mac and cheese company for $820M.  This may not seem to be negative unless you have been following the industry.  There always seems to be a decline in quality following these mergers once profits and cost control become the focus.  A recent example is Arrowhead Mills.  We have carried AM products throughout our history and always felt that they were a company that can be trusted.  This summer we received a recall for AM peanut butter.  During past peanut butter recalls, we were always excluded from the...
