One of the most common hobbies has been baking and cooking. This can be a great way to pass the time and learn some new skills in the kitchen, but most of the food being prepared hasn’t been healthy. Social media has been flooded with pictures of all the breads, cookies, and pies people have been preparing. These foods contain lots of carbohydrates, sugar, and gluten, and people often feel worse after eating them. In this week’s episode we’ll how these comfort foods can make you uncomfortable, and how they connect to diabetes and heart disease.

Products Mentioned in Today’s Show

Zinc Plus – Zinc is an essential mineral that activates more than 70 enzymes, including those that assist with protein synthesis and tissue repair. For optimal assimilation and pH balance, this formulation uses zinc citrate, the natural form of zinc that is found in human milk. Vitamin B6 and ascorbic acid have also been added to facilitate zinc metabolism.

Multi-Element Buffered C – Vitamin C is important for immune function and antioxidant protection, as well as collagen and connective tissue production. Multi-Element Buffered C adds calcium, magnesium, and potassium to ascorbic acid to create a buffered product that is gentle on the stomach. This formulation includes zinc, manganese, and copper in well-utilized forms. Quercetin, a powerful bioflavonoid, and reduced L-glutathione, an antioxidant, are included to potentiate the function of vitamin C.

Active Mega Multi – Contains activated forms of folate and vitamin B12, along with efficiently utilized mineral forms and fat-soluble vitamins. Compared to common, over-the-counter multivitamin products delivered in 1 tablet daily, this formulation offers enhanced antioxidant protection, broader trace element nutrition, and augmented B vitamin support. This core foundation of essential nutrients can help provide an extra measure of nutritional protection.
