And Now for some news ….
Multivitamin Use and Cardiovascular Disease in Men
A study published in the American Society for Nutrition journal, investigated how multivitamin use is associated with the risk of CVD in initially healthy men at baseline.
Although multivitamins are widely used by US adults, few prospective studies have investigated their association with the long- and short-term risks of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
The study concluded that in this long-term prospective study in initially healthy men, multivitamin use for ≥20 y was associated with a lower risk of major CVD events.
As always, discuss all Nutritional recommendations with your Qualified Health Care Provider.

Chiropractic and Gastrointestinal Disorders
The purpose of a study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association, was to provide a narrative review of the literature of studies describing the management of disorders of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract using ‘chiropractic therapy’.
Chiropractic Therapy is broadly defined here as spinal manipulation therapy, mobilizations, soft tissue therapy, modalities and stretches.
Search limiters include access to full text studies published between 1980 and November 2012 in peer-reviewed journals, English language only involving human subjects.
Twenty-one articles were found that met our inclusion criteria. Retrievable articles varied from case reports to clinical trials to review articles of management options.
The majority of articles chronicling patient experiences under chiropractic care reported they demonstrated mild to moderate improvements in presenting symptoms. No adverse side effects were reported.
This suggests chiropractic care can be considered as an adjunctive therapy for patients with various GI conditions providing there are no co-morbidities.
