High cholesterol is often associated with heart disease in the United States. A diet that is high in saturated fat and cholesterol can increase your cholesterol levels. Reducing the amount of saturated fat and cholesterol in your diet can help lower your cholesterol. Foods that are high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids can assist in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. Nuts such as almonds, walnuts, and sunflower seeds are high in monounsaturated fats, which is a good fat. They are also very high in fiber and phytosterols that may have cardio-protective effects. Another food to consider would be oatmeal, which is very high in soluble fiber. The high amounts of fiber not only give you a feeling of satiety, but it may reduce the absorption of cholesterol in the bloodstream. Omega-3 fatty acids are by far of the best of the good fats. They can be found in fatty fish, such as tuna, halibut, and especially salmon. Our fast-paced lifestyles do not always allow us to eat like we should or want to.

We are excited to announce a new study that reveals Pycnogenol® naturally reduces osteoarthritis. The study revealed Pycnogenol’s® capability to dramatically lower joint pain, stiffness, improve physical function and increase patients mobility almost three-fold.
The study, conducted at Italy’s Chieti-Pescara University is published in the April edition of Phytotherapy Research. The research sampled 156 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee and evaluated their symptoms on WOMAC index scores and by recording patient’s walking performance on a treadmill.
The benefits of Pycnogenol® for arthritic joints are suggested to result predominately from the anti-inflammatory and vascular potency of Pycnogenol®. There are additional break through studies on Pycnogenol® and osteoarthritis expected to be published this year allowing for development of innovative, natural formulas for joint health.
