The Buckler Brief

Posted By Elliott On March 6, 2007 @ 3:00 pm In Health,Supplements | Comments Disabled

Happy Tuesday, Apples. I’m back with a new format for the Buckler Brief that I think you will enjoy. Each week, I’ll be bringing you a quick wrap-up of the latest clinical studies on the natural health benefits (and sometimes bogus claims) of things like supplements, antioxidants and foods. Get healthy: know your nutrients!

This week:

Controlling both blood sugar and oxidative stress [7] may be more effective for those with type 1 diabetes than controlling blood sugar alone. In this study, antioxidant vitamin C was shown to help.

Moderation really is the key to good health. In a study on caffeine [8], scientists found that a little daily dose of caffeine is good for you. Like wine, you can get too much of a good thing, so stick to one or two cups of coffee or tea per day. This is great news for Starbucks.

“The Dish on Fish”. I enjoyed this thoroughly-researched medical article on Omega-3 fatty acids. Though it’s not available for free, the findings are: the scientists concluded that the benefits of fish far outweigh the risks [9]. Benefits include reduced bad cholesterol, increased good cholesterol, and reduced risk of heart disease. I recommend taking a daily Omega-3 supplement if you areĀ  concerned about consuming fish too frequently. And remember, when you eat fish, don’t go for the breaded, fried kind! Stick with grilled or baked fish.
