I think I posted something similiar to this on the C-N Forum.  It's something I became aware of some months ago and have since added Vitamin D to my supplementals.

I've been taking vit. D for awhile now and ALA and Milk Thistle. I've also started taking Creatine. I'll have a lot more to say about it because it's turned out to be a miracle for me! It's not just for body builders!

>A substantial body of research has found that creatine may have a wide variety of uses. In fact, creatine is being studied as a supplement that may help with diseases affecting the neuromuscular system, such as muscular dystrophy (MD). Recent studies suggest creatine may have therapeutic applications in aging populations for wasting syndromes, muscle atrophy, fatigue, gyrate atrophy, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease and other brain pathologies. Several studies have shown creatine can reduce cholesterol by up to 15% and it has been used to correct certain inborn errors of metabolism, such as in people born without the enzyme(s) responsible for making creatine. Some studies have found that creatine may increase growth hormone production.

Because of information DJ shared, I have been giving my husband Creatine.  It's helped his memory and his ability to process conversation.  We are both taking it in small doses and it's amazing how much energy I have now.

Some studies have found that creatine may increase growth hormone production.

There are also studies suggesting that creatine can cause or exacerbate (make worse) kidney disease, so if you have kidney disease or a history of kidney stones, you would be well advised to avoid it (creatine). The various brain pathologies respond best in patients who are vegetarians or who consume very little red meat in their diet, since meat is a primary dietary source of creatine. In clinical trials patients who consumed at least 6 oz of meat in their daily diet demonstrated no improvement in mental acuity by taking creatine.

Creatine Ethyl Ester (CEE), though touted as having a higher absorption rate and a longer serum half-life, actually has no scientific studies conclusively substantiating these claims. In contrast, a study presented at the 4th International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) in 2007 demonstrated the opposite. The researchers concluded that creatine ethyl ester is actually inferior to regular creatine monohydrate as a source of creatine.

Possible side effects of creatine use include leg pain, especially after moderate exercise. Tests in mice also showed a rise in allergic lung reactions. Though no human trials were conducted for lung disorders, patients with asthma or who are prone to getting chest colds or who suffer shortness of breath should not use creatine as a dietary supplement. Patients contemplating surgery are cautioned to advise their doctors of their creatine (and all other over-the-counter meds) use before having surgery.

Actually Capt. the information on the Creatine tells you that, but since my husband and I are both nurses, we did some research before taking it and are taking it in small doses.....but thanks for the info..... Wink

Always good to investigate claims on all OTC meds. A lot of the stuff in capsules look like ground up dirt (and are medicinally about as effective)
Also good to know that you folks have your nursing degrees. At least that way maybe I have some support for my anti-quackery campaign  Grin

As for your anti quakery-campaign,  years ago when we lived in Gibson City, Illinois and operated a nursing home called Gibson Manor, we admitted a cancer patient who was near death.  Most of his back was eaten away with the disease and I remember that we had to use special room deoderizers to mask the smell coming from his wounds.  The man had put all his faith in a Chiropractor instead of seeing an MD.  By the time he was diagnosed by an MD it was too late.  Having said that, I am not sure, with the type of cancer he was suffering from, that the MD could have saved him, but the Chiropractor should have referred him and instead continued to treat him.  Needless to say there was a lawsuit and since then I have had no use for the Chiropractic profession, although I know people who swear by them.

There is a rumor going around now that some of the Swine Flu vaccine will come from China.....  At this point all it is is a rumor, but people are fearful because of the poor quality of Chinese products.  Has anyone else heard this?  I found some links that say China has made a single dose vaccine, but I didn't find anything about them shipping it to the US.

In the last few months I've come across several different maladies that are either due to Vitamin D-3 deficiency, or 'cured' by ingesting the supplement.

98% of patients on kidney-dialysis are Vitamin D-3 deficient...

It cures rheumatoid arthritis...

Low vitamin D levels have long been linked to a higher risk of MS...

Vitamin D in pill form may cut breast cancer risk
http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE63S4GH20100429

No wonder the pharmaceutical corporations has their US congress to propose banning supplements altogether.

It always comes down to 'the love of money,' doesn't it?

Isn't there something in the Bible about that?

G_d bless America?

Sure...Just like He blessed Sodom & Gomorrah...
