Without the "good" bacteria, normal mucosal (mucus) lining, and intestinal cell junctions functioning properly, our gut lining begins to fail and leak.

A Leaking Gut can allow food particles, toxins, and bad microbes inside our bodies. Toxins and pathogens travel throughout our body in our blood streams and can wreak havoc. So why should we care if our epithelial cells, lining the GI tract, are letting a few undigested proteins, food particles or microbes through?

We should care because intestinal permeability is a major contributing factor to inflammatory diseases, including gastrointestinal problems such as Celiac Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Metabolic diseases su...

Many people still question the importance of taking supplements. Here are ten reasons to consider supplementing your diet with high-quality nutrients:

1. Current commercial agriculture techniques leave soil lacking in important minerals, causing the food grown in this soil to also be mineral deficient.

2. Many foods are shipped long distances and stored for long periods of time, both of which cause the depletion of vitamins in these foods, including the important B-complex and C vitamins.

3. Food processing, cooking, and preserving leads to nutrient depletion in our food supply that makes it difficult to obtain adequate nutrition from foods alone.

4. Many fruits and vegetables are genetically modified (GMO) to improve visual appeal and crop ...

What are genetically modified foods?
Non-GMO means non-genetically modified. GMOs (genetically modified organisms), are novel organisms created in a laboratory using genetic modification/engineering techniques. Scientists and consumer and environmental groups have cited many health and environmental risks with foods containing GMOs. As a result of the risks, many people in the United States and around the world are demanding “non-GMO” foods.

Genetically modified foodsIn genetic modification (or engineering) of food plants, scientists remove one or more genes from the DNA of another organism, such as a bacterium, virus, animal, or plant and “recombine” them into the DNA of the plant they want to alter. By adding the...

Quote from Chapter Ten of BLUE GENES, by Paul Meier, M.D., et. al., (Tyndale Publishers, 2005), pages 168-169:

“It showed that Swedish women, ages 45 to 70, who regularly took a normal vitamin pill of any kind, had a 33% reduced risk of having a first heart attack, and men in that same age range had a 22% lower risk. Of course, part of this result could be because people who take vitamins are more responsible to do other healthy things in their lives…. The researchers themselves considered these possibilities, and factored in such elements as smoking, exerci...

My name is S.Murphy. I have been taking the To Your Health Liquid Vitamin and Mineral Supplement for about 2 months now. I can honestly say that at 49 years old, I feel better physically, mentally and emotionally than I have felt in years.

I have always struggled with depression, and for a period of time I had regular appointments with a psychiatrist. I also have taken Paxil, Prozac and Wellbutrin for my depression. Those drugs worked for a while, but I built up a tolerance, plus they had side effects. I finally felt like I would be okay without them, and I was, but I also felt like I was just going through the motions of life, and not truly happy or really “living”.

Today I feel more energetic, full of life and happy with myself and everything in my life. Nothing has changed-I don’t have a new boyfriend, I didn’t get a new job or a new car; those aspects of my existence have not changed. I attribute my newly found enthusiasm and zest for living to t...
