Nutrition and Diet

Fruits and Veggies

Are you getting enough? Your teeth may have the answer. A systematic review of 15 published studies indicates that people who consume five or more servings of fruits and vegetables per day have a much reduced risk of getting various gum diseases, worsening gum disease already present or losing teeth.

Is A Pregnancy Diet Important?

Eating a healthy diet during pregnancy may be more important than you think. According to a new study that followed 2,700 children from birth to age 4, those whose mothers most closely kept to a strict Mediterranean diet during pregnancy were 32% less likely to experience an abnormal growth pattern through age 4. Dr. Dora Romaguera, who authored the study, stated “These results support the hypothesis that a healthy diet during pregnancy can have a beneficial effect for child development.”

Vitamin D and Magnesium

Vitamin D and Magnesium

Vitamin D levels can be optimized by Magnesium. Lower vitamin D levels may be caused by magnesium deficiency. Dr. Martha Shrubsole writes “Vitamin D insufficiency is something that has been recognized as a potential health problem on a fairly large scale in the United States… A lot of people have received recommendations from their healthcare providers to take vitamin D supplements to increase their levels based upon their blood tests. In addition to vitamin D, however, magnesium deficiency is an under-recognized issue. Up to 80% of people do not consume enough magnesium in a day to meet the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) based on those national estimates.”
