I enjoy the comments above, about sources for Omega 3's. I've known about fish oil, it is good to know about natural sources as well.

Fish oil is an excellent source of Omegas as mentioned. It also has an incredible ability to aid with sunburns. Something in the oil really helps the skin cells relieve a burn in the cells.

I listened to another podcast you have which speaks to Omega importance for kids as well. I like this series. I use to not take supplements, that coupled with to much coffee consumption left my body very depleted. I appreciate that Dr. Weil mentions having your blood tested, it can give you a solid idea of your bodies needs and strengths.

Flax and Kiwi are tremendous sources of the n3 Omega. Fish oils are great, but remember there are many other natural sources if you are a vegetarian.

Calcium with vitamin D is vital in fighting osteoporosis. Glad to see Whole Foods and Dr Weil covering this topic.

I was actually just reading that the FDA announced today that starting in 2010, both calcium AND vitamin D will be officially recognized as vital in the fight to combat osteoporosis. So it looks like Dr. Weil's constant drum beat on the importance of vitamin D is finally getting recognized. Here's another article that I've found helpful for preventing vitamin d deficiency (from a holistic/integrative approach): http://www.womentowomen.com/nutritionandweightloss/vitamind.aspx

Good to hear there is some hope for me and my horrific memory :) Fish Oil it is then. I wonder if there are any studies on fish oil and Alzheimer's

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!
