5 Food Groups to Jump-Start Nutrition

Posted 2 days 16 hours ago by Drugs.com

FRIDAY, May 26, 2017 – Most Americans still don't eat enough nutrient-rich foods from key groups including vegetables, fruits, whole grains and low-fat dairy, according to federal health statistics. And they take in too many refined grains, saturated fats, added sugars and salt. What to do? Here are 5 types of foods you can add today to give your diet a boost. Dark green vegetables top the list. Make a point of eating choices like spinach and other greens, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Next are legumes. Choose from the many varieties of dried beans, lentils and peas. They're great in dishes from hot casseroles and stews to cold salads. Serve fish or shellfish in place of some of the beef, pork and even poultry in your diet. Two servings a week of fatty fish, like salmon, are ideal. Nuts, seeds and soy products are other protein sources that can also substitute for traditional meat. ... Read more

One Man's Trash Is Another's Fiber

Posted 2 days 16 hours ago by Drugs.com

FRIDAY, May 26, 2017 – Wasted food results in a huge loss of important nutrients for Americans, new research contends. "Huge quantities of nutritious foods end up in landfills instead of meeting Americans' dietary needs," said study lead author Marie Spiker, a fellow at the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future in Baltimore. "Our findings illustrate how food waste exists alongside inadequate intake of many nutrients," Spiker said in a Hopkins news release. For the study, researchers reviewed 2012 federal government data on more than 200 types of food waste. The investigators found that the wasted food averaged 1,217 calories; 33 grams of protein; 5.9 grams of dietary fiber; 1.7 micrograms of vitamin D; 286 milligrams of calcium; and 880 milligrams of potassium per person each day. The study also examined how the lost nutrients in food waste compare to nutritional shortfalls in the ... Read more

[Posted 03/30/2017] ISSUE: Envy Me is recalling LaBri’s Body Health Atomic, dietary supplement marketed for weight loss, sold in 60 capsule, plastic bottles. The recall includes all lot codes, manufacturing codes and expiration dates.  The FDA analyzed samples of La Bri’s Body Health Atomic and found it to contain the undeclared ingredient sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the market in October 2010 for safety reasons.

Posted 8 Mar 2017 by Drugs.com

[Posted 03/07/2017] ISSUE: A&H Focal Inc. is voluntarily recalling all lots marketed as dietary supplements for male sexual enhancement from January 2014 to present. These products have been historically tested by the FDA and found to contain PDE-5 Inhibitors (i.e.sildenafil, tadalafil, vardenafil, etc.) which is the active ingredient in an FDA-approved drug for erectile dysfunction (ED), making these tainted dietary supplements unapproved drugs.

Health Highlights: Jan. 10, 2017

Posted 10 Jan 2017 by Drugs.com

Here are some of the latest health and medical news developments, compiled by the editors of HealthDay: No Evidence Prevagen Improves Memory: Government Lawsuit There's no scientific evidence to support claims that the dietary supplement Prevagen improves memory, a government lawsuit says. The lawsuit was filed Monday by the New York Attorney General and the Federal Trade Commission against Prevagen maker Quincy Bioscience. It seeks a ban on further claims about the product's effectiveness, refunds for consumers and civil penalties, the Associated Press reported. Prevagen is marketed as being "clinically shown" to support "clearer thinking" and to "improve memory within 90 days," but those claims are based primarily on a single study that did not show a statistically significant improvement in memory, according to New New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. In a statement, Quincy ... Read more

Special Diet May Be Boon for Kids With Crohn's, Colitis

Posted 10 Jan 2017 by Drugs.com

MONDAY, Jan. 9, 2017 – Children with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis may be able to achieve relief without medications by eating a special diet, a small study suggests. The diet includes non-processed foods, such as fruits, vegetables, meats and nuts. Over 12 weeks, the diet appeared to ease all signs of these inflammatory bowel diseases in eight of the 10 affected children, researchers report. "The study shows that without other intervention, other changes, we can improve individuals' clinical as well as laboratory markers," said study author Dr. David Suskind. He's a professor of pediatrics and director of clinical gastroenterology at Seattle Children's Hospital. "I'm not surprised," Suskind added, "primarily because preliminary studies ... opened our eyes to the idea that diet had an impact." Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) affects about 1.6 million Americans, according to ... Read more

'Teen' Finds Minors Can Buy Bodybuilding Supplement at Health Food Stores

Posted 3 Jan 2017 by Drugs.com

TUESDAY, Jan.3, 2017 – Many U.S. health food stores recommend the dietary supplement creatine to minors as an athletic performance enhancer, even though major medical societies discourage its use by kids under 18, a new study reports. When a researcher posed as a 15-year-old football player hoping to bulk up, more than two-thirds of sales attendants at health food stores across the nation recommended creatine, according to the study findings. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Sports Medicine advise against use of creatine in people younger than 18, the researchers said in background notes. "Creatine containers specifically say on the label they are not recommended for use under the age of 18, or not recommended for minors," said lead researcher Dr. Ruth Milanaik. "The companies themselves are printing it upon their labels," added Milanaik, director of the ... Read more

Healthy Diet May Mean Longer Life for Kidney Patients

Posted 9 Dec 2016 by Drugs.com

THURSDAY, Dec. 8, 2016 – A healthy diet may help people with kidney disease live longer, researchers report. They analyzed seven studies that included more than 15,000 people with chronic kidney disease, to assess the effects of a diet high in fruits, vegetables, fish, legumes, cereals, whole grains and fiber. In six of the studies, a healthy diet was consistently associated with a 20 percent to 30 percent lower rate of early death, and with 46 fewer deaths per 1,000 people over five years. But the study did not directly prove that a healthy diet would lengthen life. The international team of researchers found no significant association between a healthy diet and risk of kidney failure. The findings were published Dec. 8 in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. "Chronic kidney disease now affects about 10 percent to 13 percent of the adult population and ...

FDA Medwatch Alert: Ultimate Body Tox PRO: Recall - Undeclared Drug Ingredient

Posted 4 Dec 2016 by Drugs.com

[Posted 12/01/2016] ISSUE: Ultimate Body–Tox is voluntarily recalling all lots of Ultimate Body Tox PRO capsules to the consumer level. FDA analyses of this product found it to contain undeclared sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the U.S. market in October 2010 for safety reasons. The presence of sibutramine in Ultimate Body Tox PRO renders it an unapproved drug for which safety and efficacy have not been established and, therefore, subject to recall. The product poses a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, irregular heartbeat, or stroke. BACKGROUND: Ultimate Body Tox PRO is marketed as a dietary supplement for weight loss and is packaged in 45 c ... Read more
