I'm a bit surpirsed to see the statement above: "There aren’t many dietary sources of omega-3s; the best sources are oily fish from cold Northern waters." I always thought that flax seeds were a good source of Omega-3s.

Omega 3's are not just beneficial for brain function, they are also very helpful in combating coronary heart disease.

I noticed Jill's comments about the value Omega 3 can help with coronary heart disease reduction. I have a family history of heart disease and my doctor was smart enough to start me on Omega 3's 2 years ago. Hopefully this does indeed help.

I;m just crazy about Dr. Weil and all he has done for organic skincare and supplements. It is nice to hear his voice and gain his knowledge about Vitamin D!

Mineral Makeup seems like it would be a great addition to a mature skin care approach. The value of mineral makeup as I understand it, is that it helps add moisture to the skin cells.

Coenzyme Q10 is produced by the body and is necessary for the basic functioning of cells. CoQ10 levels are reported to decrease with age and to be low in patients with some chronic diseases such as heart conditions, muscular dystrophies, Parkinson's disease, cancer, diabetes, and HIV/AIDS. Some prescription drugs may also lower CoQ10 levels. I have been using CoQ10 topically for the last year and have notice great change in my skin!

Hi Dee Dee, please check out the "Mature Makeup" video podcast where our expert does talk about the benfits of mineral makeup for mature skin. The thing I like most about mineral makeup is that the ingredeits are supporting healthier skin so it is better to wear it than to not.

I really trust the words of Dr. Weil. He has always impressed me has coming first has a doctor and professor, then has a person who has started his own product line. Thanks for bringing us this information.

Good to hear Dr W. speak about the value of fish oil for brain function. Also the insights on the role "D" plays with calcium is very interesting and great knowledge for women and men alike!

I tried lifecell and its fine. However, I must recommend a cream I STOPPED using because after 6 months it permenantly improved my face. Its called the “Vitamin enhanced face firming serum” from the Made from Earth product line. You see it firm your face after you put it on and since its organic and chemical free - in the long run - i have now stopped using it because my face has really firmed up!! Chemicals in skincare products will cause your skin to sag in the long run. Thats because those chemicals dont belong there and impact your skins elasticity. I would defiunitely recommend the Face firming serum, from Made from Earth. Im serious, I stopped using it after 6 months of use. . .i went through a bottle a month for 6 months and thats it! i saw a major difference. . .i highly recommend it to anyone who is tired of trying all the different face creams. . .

When I told my doctor that I was having some issues with constipation, he told me it might be the calcium supplements I was talking because calcium pills out there are actually made from rocks (!) because they're mined from limestone. When I heard that, right away I switched to calcium that's gotten from a plant source - AlgaeCal - and my digestive woes have cleared up. HOWEVER, I have to say that I used to take New Chapter's Bone Strength Take Care product because they used AlgaeCal as their calcium ingredient. But I recently heard that New Chapter actually stopped using AlgaeCal and went for a cheaper calcium that's not even certified organic. New Chapter did not do anything to notify consumers like me about that change, which I consider a BAIT AND SWITCH. Has anyone else heard about this? I think it's an awful thing to do to women like me who are just trying to take the right supplements for our bones!
