The Heroes of Page 2

One thing we have noticed over the past year or two is an increased number of orders coming from customers who find our website on page 2 (and beyond).  Life in the supplements world is extremely challenging to companies with just several employees and annual sales equal to microscopic fraction compared to those of giant conglomerates.  Luckily there is a growing group of socially conscience customers who are clicking past the opening page of google when looking for particular vitamins/supplements.

A lichen (pronounced Lie-ken or sometimes Leech-N) is a composite organism...

Aspirin No Longer Recommended For Everyone
 New heart health guidelines have been issued jointly by the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA).  They agree that for older adults with no historyof heart attack, cardiac surgeries or stroke- the risk of bleeding that comes from daily aspirin dosage outweighs the heart benefit.  The two associations encourage doctors to be more selective in proscribing daily aspirin consumption.     We have known for a long time that patients on aspirin face the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding.  Even a low dose baby aspirin over time can contribute to this.  The joint statement was made to show that...

One can consider the initial blood platelets to arrive at the cut as first responders. While they stick to the edge of the damaged area they also bond to each other. ...

President
   If you're old enough to remember Donald Trump in the 1980's you'll recall a slim energenic forty year old with a racing mind.  He was at the height of American pop culture and the face of capitalism.  Somewhere in his 50s Trump began to increase weight.  In line with most males, he gained a pound or two every year between the ages of forty and sixty.    But the president crossed a dangerous threshold in his later physical exam.  Due to an increase of several pounds over last years weight of 239lb he is now categorized as officially obese...
