Gummy Vitamins: Not Just for Kids Anymore

By Grace O


Even though I follow my FoodTrients program for its anti-aging benefits, I know that vitamin supplements are an important part of aging gracefully. I take 20-plus vitamins and supplements a day, most of which are in capsule form. But for me, they're not so easy to swallow. I need to drink them with water.

Let ORAC's Keep You Healthy    

By Dr. Mark Rosenberg

When I ask my patients how many ORACs they take in a day, they give me a kind of lost look.  One patient humorously asked me once, "Is that some kind of fruit?" Well, yes and no.  ORACs are in fruit - but they're not a food per se.  Let me share with you what I tell my patients about the ORAC value of foods and its importance to your health. What's ORAC and Why Is It In My Food?...Read More
