My Story

01-06-99 As a clinical scientist and a certified nutritionist, I probably would have never tried Calorad® if it had not been recommended to me by my best friend, Scott.

01-10-99 Purchased and started using Calorad® for the first time.

01-17-99 Day 7 - Weight loss ...4 lbs.

01-24-99 Day 14 - I lose 4 more lbs and decide to become a distributor!

02-10-99 Day 30 - I finish my first bottle and lose .. another 4 lbs for a total of 12 pounds!

02-10-99 Day 30 I have lost almost 12 pounds and over two and a half inches off my waist within my first four weeks on Calorad®.

02-10-99 Day 30 My wife, Lynn, loses three pounds and a total of five inches in the same time period.

02-24-99 Six weeks on the product. I experience increased energy, improved sleep, and several lipofuscin deposits (age spots) on my hands recede and totally disappear.

03-03-99 My wife, who previously suffered from frequent and rather severe bouts of insomnia, now 'sleeps like a baby.'

04-07-99 My teenage son and daughter also start to use the product and experience similar weight loss and muscle toning.

05-11-99 My sister loses 10 pounds and two dress sizes in three weeks, and she loves the product.

11-07-99 I decide to spread the word online, and establish my nutrition advisor website.

As a clinical scientist, I can truly say that Calorad® is one of the best diet products I've ever seen!

In the 4 1/2 years since, we have sold over $1 million dollars of Calorad® online, and have seen many great Calorad® success stories.

Vitamin D and All-Cause Mortality in Women and Men

Vitamin D and All-cause Mortality: Could this vitamin help you live longer?

Low vitamin D levels have been linked with cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Using the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a large population-based study, researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine evaluated whether low serum vitamin D levels were associated with mortality in the general population. These researchers studied the association of low vitamin D levels with all-cause mortality, cancer, and cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality among 13,331 American adults who were 20 years or older. Vitamin D levels of these study participants were collected over a 6-year period (from 1988 through 1994), and participants were followed for mortality through the year 2000 (12 years). The researchers found that being older, female, nonwhite, having diabetes, a current smoker, and having a higher body mass index were all independently associated with a greater risk of being vitamin D deficient, while greater physical activity, vitamin D supplementation, and evaluating subjects in a non-winter season (greater exposure to sunshine) were all associated with higher levels of vitamin D. During a median of 8.7 years of follow-up, there were 1806 deaths, including 777 (43%) from cardiovascular disease.

The authors divided the participants into 4 groups (called "quartiles") based on their blood levels of vitamin D, and adjusted for baseline demographics, season, and CVD risk factors (all of which can effect vitamin D levels). Being in the lowest quartile (defined as vitamin D levels less than 17.8 ng/mL) was associated with a 26% increased rate of death from any cause (mortality rate ratio, 1.26; 95% CI, 1.08-1.46). The adjusted models of CVD and cancer mortality revealed a higher risk, but it was not statistically significant. The authors concluded that having low blood levels of vitamin D was independently associated with an increase in all-cause mortality in the general population.

Vitamin D could add 5 years to your life span.

Among many factors that may be responsible for the apparent effect of vitamin Ds on all-cause mortality is the effect of this vitamin on telomeres (the terminal end of each gene) and its potential effect on slowing aging. Richards and coworkers examined whether vitamin D concentrations could slow the rate of shortening of telomeres on leukocytes (a marker of aging). The authors stated that vitamin D is a potent inhibitor of the proinflammatory response and slows the turnover of leukocytes. Leukocyte telomere length (LTL) is predictive of the development of numerous aging-related disease, and length of leukocyte telomeres decreases with each cell division and with increased inflammation (more common in the elderly).

Researchers measured the concentrations of vitamin D in the blood of 2160 women aged 18-79 years (the mean age of these women was about 49 years) from a large population-based study. This study divided the group into thirds [tertiles] based on vitamin D levels, and found that increased age was significantly associated with shorter LTL (r = -0.40, P < 0.0001). The higher the levels of serum vitamin, the longer the leukocyte telomeres. (r = 0.07, P = 0.0010), and this finding persisted even after adjustment for age (r = 0.09, P < 0.0001) and other variables that independently could effect leukocyte telomere length (age, season of vitamin D measurement, menopausal status, use of hormone replacement therapy, and physical activity). The difference in LTL between the highest and lowest tertiles of vitamin D was highly significant (P = 0.0009), and the authors stated that this was equivalent to 5.0 years of aging. The authors concluded that higher vitamin D levels, (these types of levels are easily modifiable through nutritional supplementation), were associated with longer LTL, which underscores the potentially beneficial effects of vitamin D on aging and age-related diseases.
