Better Memory

Here is a site that shows you how to develop a better memory. I have tried some of the methods and they do work.

More for Gingivitis (See my previous email for a more complete overview)

I read this about lycopene, the lycopene used is a brand name Lyco Red but any lycopene should work the same.

Lycopene Shows Promise in the Treatment of Gingivitis
“Efficacy of lycopene in the treatment of gingivitis: a randomised, placebo-controlled clinical trial,” Chandra RV, Prabhuji ML, et al, Oral Health Prev Dent, 2007; 5(4): 327-36.

In a randomized, double-blind study involving 20 healthy subjects showing clinical signs of gingivitis but otherwise healthy, supplementation with 8 mg/day lycopene (LycoRed) for a period of 2 weeks was found to statistically significantly reduce bleeding index and scores on non-invasive measures of gingivitis. A strong negative correlation was found between salivary uric acid levels and percentage reduction in gingivitis at 1 and 2 weeks among subjects who were taking lycopene and receiving oral prophylaxis with scaling and root planing, and among those who were taking lycopene and not receiving oral prophylaxis, as compared to subjects receiving placebo. The authors conclude, “The results presented in this study suggest that lycopene shows great promise as a treatment modality in gingivitis. The possibility of obtaining an additive effect by combining routine oral prophylaxis with lycopene is also an exciting possibility, which deserves further study.”

Vitamin D

A while back I sent an email about osteoporosis with a link to an article about Vitamin D. Over the past few months I am continuing to read about the importance of Vitamin D. So once again I encourage you to get enough of it which should be 1000-2000 IUs
