There is a right kind of diet that works with our genes that keeps us healthy and lowers inflammation levels. The more you move your eating patterns to a Hunter/Gatherer diet, the better you will feel. Try it for a week or two and see for yourself. Also, there are nutrients and supplements that work with your body that have side benefits, rather than side effects. Learn to seek those out first and use drugs as a last resort. Drugs can be life savers, but I do not believe they should be the first place you look.
In this weeks HealthBlogger, I highlight a few of these important nutraceuticals, and the studies that support their use. Work with your doctor and always insist that you would prefer to try these approaches first, or seek out someone to work with you and your doctor who knows a Nutrigenic approach to your health issue.
Enjoy this weeks selections and remember...

Vitamin K may reduce cancer risk: EPIC study...
Consuming foods rich in vitamin K2 may reduce the risk of cancer, says a new study supporting the potential anti-cancer benefits of this emerging nutrient.

Green tea extract effective for weight loss at low doses...
Daily supplements of a purified extract of green tea may increase energy expenditure and help men beat the bulge, say results from a new human study.
A low dose of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) from green tea was found to increase fat oxidation by 33 per cent, according to findings published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
“This pilot study provides for the first time evidence that a single green tea catechin, EGCG, can increase fat oxidation in obese men, at least within 2 h after meal intake. Within this postprandial phase, EGCG is equipotent with caffeine with regard to fat oxidation,” wrote the authors, led by Frank Thielecke from DSM Nutritional Products.
