you follow the concepts of The
Menopause Diet, you should realize you are
improving your vitamin balance by eating nutritionally
dense foods. However, since you will be eliminating
many of the "fortified" grains and
starches, the addition of selected nutritional
supplements is like buying collision insurance.
Since everyone can use a helping hand, I designed
Female Formula Stress Tabs to insure you have
all the vitamins and minerals necessary to keep
your program on tract.

Levels Fail to Predict Female Sex Drive
to pitch Testosterone Replacement Therapy as the Sexual
Fountain of Youth got a sharp stick in the groin with
the publication of these two studies. The first one
measured testosterone and DHEA-S levels in women 45-75
and compared them with a sexual function profile.
There was no correlation between low sex drive and
low levels of either hormone. In the second study,
testosterone replacement therapy with a patch had
no effect on raising growth hormone levels or improving
IGF-1 production in postmenopausal women. So if your
doctor, courtesy of the pharmaceutical rep, wants
to hand you a prescription for testosterone to rev
up your sex drive - pass. Testosterone will only raise
your bad cholesterol, grow hair on your face, raise
your insulin levels and pack on the pounds, and that's

Aspirin, Vitamin E and Calcium Fail in Supplements
while we're on the subject of things that don't work
as advertised, consuming low dose aspirin to prevent
cancer in women got a shot in the head because researchers
found no reduction in cancer mortality. Vitamin E
also got the shaft for not helping to prevent heart
disease or cancer in women.Then dairy foods found
themselves in the cross-hairs when a calcium fortified
beverage did NOT increase weight loss in women. Finally,
consuming calcium and Vitamin D failed to prevent
fractures in elderly women. Do we see a trend here?
What may benefit men doesn't seem to make any difference
in women. Now that's what I call gender differences

Lowering In Type 2 Diabetes Doesn't Help Microvascular
your cholesterol with a statin keeps getting heavy
commercial promotion on television and in the magazines,
but this interesting study shows that lowering your
lipid profile doesn't lower C reactive protein, an
important indicator of inflammation in the body nor
does it improve the responsiveness of the lining of
important small coronary vessels. Remember, 50% of
coronaries occur in the face of normal cholesterol

Cholesterol and B6
thought this article was really interesting. If you
have nightmares, check your cholesterol profile. It
seems low cholesterol, low triglycerides and low LDL
levels could be the cause, especially if you're depressed.
Low cholesterol levels inhibit serotonin production
during the REM phase of your sleep, resulting in vivid,
frightening dreams. But if you have panic attacks,
your cholesterol was found to be high.
second study confirmed what those of you taking Pyridoxal
5 phosphate have long observed: it makes you dream
in technicolor and remember your dreams, especially
if you take 20mg before bedtime. P5P is a necessary
co-factor for the conversion of tryptophan into serotonin.
So if you are taking a statin and suffer from nightmares,
consider adding P5P for a better night's sleep.
