1. Ye are the children of one father, provided for by his

care; and the breast of one mother hath given you suck.

2. Let the bonds of affection, therefore, unite thee with

thy brothers, that peace and happiness may dwell in

thy father’s house.

3. And when ye separate in the world, remember the

relation that bindeth you to love and unity; and prefer

not a stranger before thy own blood.

4. If thy brother is in adversity, assist him; if thy sister

is in trouble, forsake her not.

5. So shall the fortunes of thy father contribute to the

support of his whole race; and his care be continued

to you all, in your love to each other.

Glucosamine sulfate is a naturally occurring chemical found in the human body. It is in the fluid that is around joints. Glucosamine is also found in other places in nature. For example, the glucosamine sulfate that is put into dietary supplements is often harvested from the shells of shellfish. Glucosamine sulfate used in dietary supplements does not always come from natural sources. It can also be made in a laboratory.

There are different forms of glucosamine including glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride, and N-acetyl-glucosamine. These different chemicals have some similarities; however, they may not have the same effects when taken as a dietary supplement. Most of the scientific research done on glucosamine has been done on glucosamine sulfate. The information on this page pertains to glucosamine sulfate. For information on the other forms of glucosamine, see the specific pages for each of them.

Dietary supplements that contain glucosamine often contain additional ingredients. These additional ingredients are frequently chondroitin sulfate, MSM, or shark cartilage. Some people think these combinations work better than taking just glucosamine sulfate alone. So far, researchers have found no proof that combining the additional ingredients with glucosamine adds any benefit.

Some glucosamine sulfate products are not labeled accurately. In some cases, the amount of glucosamine actually in the product has varied from none to over 100% of the amount stated on the product’s label. Some products have contained glucosamine hydrochloride when glucosamine sulfate was listed on the label.

Glucosamine sulfate is taken by mouth for osteoarthritis, glaucoma, weight loss, joint pain caused by drugs, a bladder condition called interstitial cystitis, jaw pain, joint pain including knee pain, back pain, multiple sclerosis, and HIV/AIDS.

Glucosamine is also in some skin creams used to control arthritis pain. These creams usually contain camphor and other ingredients in addition to glucosamine.

Glucosamine sulfate is used parenterally for osteoarthritis.

How does it work?















Glucosamine sulfate is a chemical found in the human body. It is used by the body to produce a variety of other chemicals that are involved in building tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and the thick fluid that surrounds joints.

Joints are cushioned by the fluid and cartilage that surround them. In some people with osteoarthritis, the cartilage breaks down and becomes thin. This results in more joint friction, pain, and stiffness. Researchers think that taking glucosamine supplements may either increase the cartilage and fluid surrounding joints or help prevent breakdown of these substances, or maybe both.

Some researchers think the “sulfate” part of glucosamine sulfate is also important. Sulfate is needed by the body to produce cartilage. This is one reason why researchers believe that glucosamine sulfate might work better than other forms of glucosamine such as glucosamine hydrochloride or N-acetyl glucosamine. These other forms do not contain sulfate.

Glucosamine Studied:

Glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride, N-acetyl glucosamine

Origin: Major component of joint cartilage. Supplements are derived from the shells of shellfish (such as shrimp, lobster and crab) or from vegetable sources.

Claims: Slows deterioration of cartilage, relieves osteoarthritis (OA) pain and improves joint mobility.

What we know: Glucosamine produced in the body provides natural building blocks for growth, repair and maintenance of cartilage. Like chondroitin, glucosamine may lubricate joints, help cartilage retain water and prevent its breakdown. Similar to NSAIDs for effectiveness of easing osteoarthritis symptoms but may take twice as long as conventional drugs to work.

Studies: Trial results are mixed, but overall, glucosamine appears to reduce pain and improve function in OA. A 2005 review of 20 glucosamine studies found an improvement in joint pain, stiffness and function with one brand of glucosamine (Rottapharm, marketed as Dona, Viartril and Xicil) but not others.

The largest study to date, the 2006 Glucosamine/chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial (GAIT) looked at 1,600 people with knee OA. The first phase found that a small subset of patients with moderate-to-severe arthritis experienced significant pain relief from combined glucosamine and chondroitin. The 2008 phase found that glucosamine and chondroitin, together or alone, did not slow joint damage. And in the two-year-long 2010 phase, glucosamine and chondroitin were found as effective for knee OA as celecoxib (Celebrex).

In a small 2012 study, an improvement in symptoms was seen with combined glucosamine and NSAIDs, and a smaller but still significant improvement with glucosamine alone.

Research also suggests glucosamine may slow joint damage. A 2008 retrospective study of nearly 300 patients found those using glucosamine underwent half as many joint replacement surgeries as those on placebo.

Dosage: Capsules, tablets, liquid or powder (to be mixed into a drink); 1,500 mg once daily or in three divided doses to prevent stomach upset. Often combined with chondroitin. May take up to one month to notice effect.



Glucosamine may cause mild stomach upset, nausea, heartburn, diarrhea and constipation, as well as increased blood glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride and blood pressure. Don’t use glucosamine if you are allergic to shellfish.

New research suggests that people with glaucoma or intraocular hypertension could have worsening eye pressure if they take a glucosamine supplement.

The Health Benefits of Goji Berries
Himalayan Goji Berries

Goji berries (Lycium barbarum) are the most nutritionally dense fruit on Earth. They are a member of the nightshade family (Solonaceae), which contains many other common vegetables such as potato, tomato, eggplant, and pepper, as well as some poisonous plants like belladonna and deadly nightshade. Native to the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet and Mongolia, the goji berry is now grown in many other countries as well.

Goni Berries
Goni Berries

Although they have only been introduced in Western countries in recent years, gojis have been used for thousands of years in Tibet and China, both as a culinary ingredient and medicinally.
Unique among fruits because they contain all essential amino acids, goji berries also have the highest concentration of protein of any fruit. They are also loaded with vitamin C, contain more carotenoids than any other food, have twenty-one trace minerals, and are high in fiber. Boasting 15 times the amount of iron found in spinach, as well as calcium, zinc, selenium and many other important trace minerals, there is no doubt that the humble goji berry is
a nutritional powerhouse.


Goji Berries Health Benefits
Goji Berries Health Benefits

This amazing little superfruit also contains natural

anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal

compounds. Their powerful antioxidant properties

and polysaccharides help to boost the immune system.

It’s no wonder then, that in traditional Chinese

medicine they are renowned for increasing strength

and longevity.
In traditional Chinese medicine, the goji is said to act

on the Kidney and Liver meridians to help with lower

back pain, dizziness and eyesight.

They are most often consumed raw, made  into a tea

or extract, or as an ingredient in soups.

Gojis are most commonly available in dried form, and

make a great snack eaten as is, added to trail mix,

muesli or oatmeal. They can also be soaked for a couple

of hours in enough water to cover them. Then the soak

water can be drained off and makes a delicious drink,

or both water and berries added to smoothies.

*Please note that there can be adverse interactions if

you consume goji berries while also taking medication

for diabetes, or blood pressure, or take the blood

thinner warfarin.

So be sure to consult your health care provider if that

is the case.
Gojis can often be found in Asian food stores, but most

of these come from the commercial growing regions

of China and Tibet, and contain high levels of pesticides

and synthetic fertilizers. Even some brands which

claim to be organic may not be, so be sure to source

your goji berries from a reputable source.

Deer Velvet Antler Provides Nutritional Support For Joint Structure and Function

The first health care claim of deer velvet antler to be

substantiated by scientific evidence, in compliance

with US Food and Drug Administration dietary

supplement regulations, was announced by the

North American Elk Breeders Association (NAEBA)

recently. Executive Director Ben Coplan

said the determination, is a significant breakthrough.

According to Coplan, the Nutrinfo report states

there is a reasonable basis to claim that velvet antler

helps relieve the symptoms of arthritis.

However, a disease claim may not be used for a dietary

supplement in the US; therefore, the acceptable

statement for product labels and advertisements

of a dietary supplement would be “provides nutritional support for joint structure and function.”

Many studies have shown most of the carbohydrate

in antler is proteoglycan, which is a combination

of protein and carbohydrate. The carbohydrate portion

is primarily glycosaminoglycan, of which chondroitin

sulfate is by far the predominant constituent.

One study cited by the Nutrinfo report evaluated the

clinical efficacy of chondroitin sulfate in knee

osteoarthritis. Treatment with 3 X 400 mg doses per

day for 90 days provided significant relief from

symptoms as reported by patients.

“We intend to research and substantiate other health

benefit claims for velvet antler,” Coplan said.

“We want to carefully research the potential benefits

of velvet antler supplements for supporting the

immune system, anti-aging, muscle strength and

endurance, and sexual vitality.”


Zealand Game Industry Board and AgResearch

are working hard to prove scientifically –

that New Zealand deer velvet may have a positive

effect on athletic performance.

Although requiring further examination, the latest

human clinical trials (conducted by the Otago

University Human Performance Center on behalf

of NZGIB and AgResearch) do indicate a possible link

between New Zealand deer velvet and improved

athletic performance on two fronts:

“Improved strength and endurance in response

to training, and improved recovery from muscle

tissue damage associated with exercise.”

In the first study, scientists at Otago University

Human Performance Center compared the

development of muscle strength and endurance

in groups of males taking different forms of

New Zealand deer velvet to a control group taking

a placebo.

In the study, 51 male athletes undertook a 12 week

period of supervised training during which strength

and endurance were monitored. The group taking

New Zealand deer velvet antler showed greater

improvements in isokinetic strength and muscular

endurance as a result of training than the control group.

The second study was designed to determine what

role New Zealand deer velvet antler has in athletic

performance by affecting recovery from muscle injury

A substance found in the bloodstream called creatine

kinase, was used as an indicator of muscle tissue

damage. more.

The thirty athletes in the trial ran downhill on a

treadmill to induce muscle tissue damage in the

muscles at the front of their thighs. Muscle biopsies

and blood samples were then taken.

Those athletes who had been on a course of

New Zealand deer velvet for two weeks previously

showed significantly reduced elevation of creatine

kinase levels in their bloodstream, possibly indicating

less muscle damage.

A trend also emerged in which athletes taking

powdered New Zealand deer velvet reported a

recovery from muscle soreness 24 hours earlier than

the subjects receiving a placebo.

The benefit of this is that they could return to training

more quickly. While not yet being a complete picture,

the statistically significant results bode well for

further research.

Deer Antler Velvet Part 1.





Deer Antler Velvet


Health Facts: Deer Antler Velvet.
By Clayton South
Last updated: Mar 31, 2016

Clayton South, SPN (ISSA), is a recognized expert in the bodybuilding / fitness industry with over 150 bodybuilding, fitness and nutrition publications to his credit.

Deer antler velvet is a name that’s used to describe the antler velvet harvested from the antlers of growing deer, moose, caribou and elk. The antlers are removed from the animal before they solidify into solid bone, and the velvet is harvested with no harm coming to the animal.

Deer antler also contains calcium, magnesium, zinc, and a full spectrum of amino acids and anti-inflammatory prostaglandins. Most deer antler velvet sold as a dietary supplement comes from Korea or Australia.

Prostaglandins are hormone-like compounds produced in body tissue that help control blood pressure, smooth muscle activity, inflammation, glandular secretion, calcium movement, hormone regulation, and cell growth control.

Prostaglandins also control the substances involved in the transmission of nerve impulses, participate in the body’s defenses against infection, and regulate the rate of metabolism.

Deer antler velvet has been used in China for over 2,000 years as a medicinal treatment for numerous minor conditions and ailments.

The effects of deer antler velvet on health will depend on the animal from which it was taken (deer, caribou, moose or elk) and the diet of the animal.

And, while scientific studies on deer antler velvet are scarce, deer antler velvet has been used by traditional Chinese medicine as a treatment for infertility, joint inflammation, and hypertension.

In addition, traditional medicine has used deer antler velvet to improve mental alertness and memory, boost immune system function, speed wound healing and recovery, slow aging, balance iron levels, improve libido in both sexes, and restore joint health.

Soviet scientists in the 1980s tested the effects of deer

antler velvet on the performance of elite Russian athletes, and the results were astonishing. Deer antler velvet helped increase the strength and muscle mass of Russian athletes, and speed their recovery time from exercise.

The increases in strength helped the Russian athletes shatter new strength records at the Olympics and crush their American competitors.

Deer antler velvet is a natural source of glucosamine, chondroitin, and collagen. The body uses glucosamine to manufacture glycosaminoglycans that are found in cartilage tissue.

Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), also known as mucopolysaccharides, form an important component of connective tissues. Chondroitin Sulphate and Heparin are two well-known examples of GAGs.

Science has validated the use of glucosamine sulfate (the stable form of glucosamine with a mineral salt) as a treatment for osteoarthritis1, and both chondroitin and collagen show promise in arthritis treatment. The presence of these compounds may explain the effects of deer antler velvet on joint tissue.2,3

Deer antler velvet also contains male and female hormones, including Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-1) – a hormone that’s produced in the liver as a response to growth hormone (HGH) stimulation.

HGH stands for Human Growth Hormone (also known as Somatotropin), an amino acid produced in the pituitary gland of the brain. HGH plays an important role in human development by affecting skeletal growth.

HGH levels are high during childhood, and peak at adolescence. During puberty, HGH levels determine height and bone size. After puberty, HGH levels start to decline, and by age 61 decrease to 20% of what they were at age 21.

HGH is continually produced throughout the human lifecycle, and continues to regulate the body’s metabolism. HGH is carried into the liver and partially converted into IGF-1 (see below).

Increases in these hormones may also lead to increases in circulating levels of free testosterone. Deer antler velvet has been used to boost libido and sex drive, and the elevation of these hormones may explain these effects.

IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor 1) was known as “Nonsuppressible Insulin-Like Activity” (NSILA) in the 1970s, and as “Somatomedin C” in the 1980s.

IGF-1 is a protein hormone similar in molecular structure to insulin. IGF-1 plays an important role in childhood growth and continues to have anabolic effects in adults.

IGF-1 is produced by the liver upon stimulation by HGH (human growth hormone, see above), and stimulates and regulates cell growth and multiplication in bones, cartilage, and nerve cells, among other things.

Deer antler velvet is not an essential nutrient and no daily requirement (RDA) exists. No symptoms of deficiency exist. Healthy adults can benefit, however, from supplementing with deer antler velvet (see above).

No side-effects are known. It’s not known if deer antler velvet interacts with other drugs. Some people may have allergies to deer antler velvet.

What is Gluten Free?


What is Gluten Free?

The truth is, gluten has the potential to cause internal inflammation inside your body and wreak tons of havoc. Inflammation inside your body has been linked to stubborn belly fat, chronic pain, and increased risk of diseases like Type 2 Diabetes, heart disease and even some forms of cancer.

It’s scary stuff. But most people feel lost when they hear they should be eating less bread, pasta, and cereal…what is there left to eat?





Going gluten free can be extremely hard if you don’t know which foods are the best choices. Lucky for you, I’m here to show you how easy going gluten free can really be.

Unfortunately, what I see most often is people turning to food with the “Gluten Free” label.

Foods labeled “gluten free” make millions claiming to be “healthy, diet foods”, but the truth is, they’re worse for you than their gluten alternatives.

Have you ever read the ingredients list on some of these foods?

They are heavily processed and contain chemical additives and artificial ingredients that are not only damaging to your health, but cause major weight gain. If you have turned to these gluten free foods in an effort to lose weight with no success, now you know why!

To get results on a gluten free diet, you need to eat real food that you’ll actually enjoy.

Bronx State Assemblyman Roughed Up


Bronx state assemblyman Micheal Blake,  roughed up by police when

he tried to intervene!





Police Commissioner Bill Bratton on Monday refused

to issue an apology to a Bronx state assemblyman who

claims he was roughed up by a cop when he tried to

intervene in a street dispute.

Bill Bratton, NYPD Commissioner, 2016
Bill Bratton, NYPD
Commissioner, 2016





Assemblyman Michael Blake told reporters Monday

morning that he expected Bratton to apologize for his officer’s actions.

But “there will be no apology forthcoming from me,”

Bratton told the press later.

He said he had briefly met with Blake privately

but only to offer “to provide him and his staff a briefing

on our use of force protocols.

“We’ve very proud of use of force policies and

procedures,” Bratton said, adding that Blake never

asked him to apologize.

Hours earlier, Blake stood outside NYPD headquarters

in Lower Manhattan and said, “I would hope to hear

an apology,” adding that he intended to turn around

and march into 1 Police Plaza for a “face-to-face”

with Bratton.

“I want to know very clearly why I was treated in this

manner. Why would your officers act in this way?

Why would your officers actually indicate they would

do the exact same thing again?” Blake said.

Blake, who once worked for the Obama administration,

said he was attempting “to find out what was

happening” in a weekend dispute involving cops when

he was strong-armed by an officer.

“I heard a commotion happening behind me,” he said.

“I turned around, I saw a male and a female having

some sort of a dispute… I ran in that direction to find

out what was happening and within seconds I was in

a bear hug and to my left tossed to the gate that is

closest to the wall at the Morris Houses.”

A commanding officer recognized Blake and told the

officer to “get off him,’’ Blake said.

A police spokesman said Monday that a sergeant and

a cop were responding to a dispute when Blake put his

hand on the sergeant. The officer thought the sergeant

was being threatened, the spokesman said.

Blake said he didn’t remember putting his hands on the

officer and that at the most he may have touched the

man’s shoulder.

Blake, who said he was wearing a White House shirt,

slacks and shoes at the time of the incident, said he has

spoken with an NYPD chief and a commanding officer

in The Bronx and that both apologized.

“When that happens you immediately think,


” It’s impossible to remove that race was not a part of it.

I was seen as a threat,” he said, choking up.

SOUTH BRONXCrime & Mayhem
Bronx Assemblyman Says NYPD Officer Used

Excessive Force Against Him

By Chris Sommerfeldt, Eddie Small and Jeff Mays

Assemblyman Michael Blake said an officer threw him

into a gate during an event at the Gouverneur Morris

Houses on Saturday afternoon.

Assemblyman Michael Blake said an officer threw him

into a gate during an event at the Gouverneur Morris

Houses on Saturday afternoon.

(View Full CaptionDNAinfo/Eddie Small)
THE BRONX — A New York State assemblyman from

The Bronx says police used excessive force against him

as he tried to soothe a tense situation between officers

and community members in Morrisania and then lied

about it to the press.

Assemblyman Michael Blake said he was attending a

family event at the Gouverneur Morris Houses at East

169th Street and Washington Avenue in The Bronx on

Saturday afternoon when he saw a woman in handcuffs.

The 33-year-old Blake, who represents the 79th

Assembly District in the South Bronx, said he rushed

over to discuss the situation when an officer put him

in a bear hug and threw him against a gate.

Blake described it as “an absolute injustice and tragedy

and said the only reason he was let go was because other police officers recognized him as an elected official.

The officer who tackled Blake did apologize for doing so soon after it happened, explaining that he had perceived him as a threat to his partner, but when Blake asked if he would do the same thing if the situation happened again, he said he would, according to Blake.

He filed a formal complaint with the Civilian Complaint Review Board on Saturday night and noted that he thought his race had something to do with the police officer’s conduct.

“I was a black man,” Blake said at a press conference about the incident on Monday morning. “I was seen as a threat, period. No questions asked.”

He emphatically denied that he had grabbed the officer’s shoulder despite the NYPD’s claim that the incident may have been sparked by Blake putting his hands on a police officer, describing any attempts to characterize him as aggressive during the interaction as slanderous.

“On Saturday afternoon, after multiple conversations with multiple officers, including the officers included in this situation, not one time did anyone indicate that their shoulder was touched,” he said. “But yet, ironically, when press reaches out, then all of a sudden your shoulder has been touched, and that was the reason for the action.”

Blake said he hoped to receive an apology from Commissioner Bill Bratton about the incident, along with a face to face meeting with him.

Bratton said he met with Blake soon after his Monday morning press conference and explained the protocols for investigating allegations similar to the ones he had filed.

He said the CCRB investigation would likely take several months and offered to provide Blake and his staff briefings on the use of force policies within the police department.

However, he said he would not be apologizing for the event at this time.

“There will be no apology forthcoming from me,” Bratton said at a separate press conference on Monday afternoon, adding, “We’ll see where the investigation goes.”

Mayor Bill de Blasio has already apologized to Blake for the incident, saying he told the assemblyman that he was sorry for what happened while stressing that there still needs to be a full investigation into it.

“We have to reserve final judgment until there is a normal kind of process where it’s investigated,” de Blasio said. “Obviously, he has a CCRB complaint in. That needs to go through the process, and then we’ll have a better picture.”

Blake said he hoped to see the officer face some sort of discipline for his actions on Saturday, but Bratton maintained that this was not likely to happen.

“There is no action that has been taken against the officer, nor will there be,” he said. “I have no reason to believe that the officer behaved in a significantly inappropriate manner. We will see what the investigation determines, but I see no reason to remove that officer.”

Blake stressed multiple times throughout the press conference that the only reason he was recognizable Monday was that he had been recognized on Saturday, which he viewed as an enormous problem.

“Your name and your title should not be determination for justice,” he said.

Diabetes breakthrough 2 “Stem Cells”

Diabetes breakthrough 2, ” STEM CELL “

HomeAmerica Diabetes breakthrough: Human stem cells altered to make insulin Published time: 10 Oct, 2014 02:04 Edited time: 11 Oct, 2014 09:28 A human stem cells (Reuters / Yves Herman) A human stem cells (Reuters / Yves Herman) / Reuters AddThis Sharing Buttons38 In what could be a major breakthrough for diabetes treatment, scientists have discovered a way to drastically alter human embryonic stem cells, transforming them into cells that produce and release insulin. Tags Health, USA, Medicine, Science Developed by researchers at Harvard University, the innovative new technique involves essentially recreating the formation process of beta cells, which are located in the pancreas and secrete insulin. By stimulating certain genes in a certain order, the Boston Globe reports that scientists were able to charm embryonic stem cells – and even altered skin cells – into becoming beta cells. The whole process took 15 years of work, but now lead researcher Doug Melton says the team can create hundreds of millions of these makeshift beta cells, and they’re hoping to transplant them into humans starting in the next few years. “We are reporting the ability to make hundreds of millions of cells — the cell that can read the amount of sugar in the blood which appears following a meal and then squirts out or secretes just the right amount of insulin,” Melton told NPR. Reuters / Lucy Nicholson There are 29.1 million people in the United States believed to have diabetes, according to statistics by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention dating back to 2012. That’s 9.3 percent of the entire population. Currently, diabetes patients must rely on insulin shots to keep their blood-sugar levels stable, a process that involves continual monitoring and attentiveness. Failure to efficiently control these levels can cause some patients to go blind, suffer from nerve damage and heart attacks, and even lose limbs. If Melton’s beta cell creation process can be successfully applied to humans, it could eliminate the need for such constant check-ups, since the cells would be doing all the monitoring. Already, there are positive signs moving forward: the transplanted cells have worked wonders on mice, quickly stabilizing their insulin levels. “We can cure their diabetes right away — in less than 10 days,” Melton said to NPR. “This finding provides a kind of unprecedented cell source that could be used for cell transplantation therapy in diabetes.” With mice successfully treated, the team is now working with a scientist in Chicago to put cells into primates, the Globe reported. Even so, significant obstacles remain, particularly for those who have Type 1 diabetes. With this particular form of the disease, the human immune system actually targets and destroys insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas, so Melton’s team is looking into encasing cells inside of a protective shell in order to ensure their safety. Another hurdle is political, since many are against tinkering with human embryonic stem cells on the grounds that research wipes out human embryos. As a result, scientists are also trying to recreate their work on other types of stem cells. Regardless, the research – formally published in the Cell journal this week – is being welcomed with open arms. “It’s a huge landmark paper. I would say it’s bigger than the discovery of insulin,” Jose Olberholzer, a professor of bioengineering at the University of Illinois, told NPR. “The discovery of insulin was important and certainly saved millions of people, but it just allowed patients to survive but not really to have a normal life. The finding of Doug Melton would really allow to offer them really something what I would call a functional cure. You know, they really wouldn’t feel anymore being diabetic if they got a transplant with those kind of cells.”
