Optimal Health Resource

Another interesting blog to find useful information is http://myoptimalhealthresource.blogspot.com/. Todays article was about vitamin D. We have talked a little about vitamin D before and the importance of recieving it through sunlight, however this article talks about how vitamin D protects against colon cancer. Again this is an example of how vitamins and minerals, with vitamin D being an important vitmain, can help in all kinds of health issues. See the article here. Further articles talk about how cancer is affected be red meat (click here). Another interesting article says that almonds can help affect weight loss (see here). Apparently they can lead to accellerated fat metabolism and reduce the incidence of overweight by influencing healthy glucose  control and insulin response. They also help stablize post meal blood sugar level spikes.
