Can milk actually be dangerous to your health? If it comes from the USA, some experts around the world are saying YES!

Has the value of milk in the USA been dramatically overstated?

Is the $21 Billion Dollar milk industry hiding something from us all?

New Dietary Food Guidelines Released By The USA

On January 13 the USA released its new dietary guidelines to the public.

The new U.S.A. dietary guidelines call for Americans to reduce their calorie intake and increase their amount of exercise.

Released by the departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services, the guidelines form the basis for federal nutrition programs and will be used to update the U.S. food pyramid for the first time since it was developed 12 years ago.

We believe this update is long overdue.

The new recommendations drew heavily from a series of Institute of Medicine reports that examine which nutrients are necessary for good health, and in what quantities. The reports establish reference values called Dietary Reference Intakes for a number of nutrients, including sodium, water, and fats.

Congratulations Dr. Mindell - For NNFA President's Award Recipient!

Dr. Earl Mindell was honored by the National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA) in 2004 as a recipient of the President's Award. This award was created to recognize an individual who has made long-time contributions to the natural products industry, or has made a one-time, uniquely significant impact on the industry.

Although we don't have the full details for this prestigious honor, here at Best Liquid Vitamins, we personally believe Dr. Mindell qualifies in both categories.

His long-time contributions include over 40 years as an author in the natural science field with several best selling books, including his best ever - "The Vitamin Bible" - now in its 25th year of print having sold well over 10 Million Copies worldwide translated into more than 37 different languages.

And without a doubt in our minds, his latest one-time uniquely significant impact surely has to be the formulation and standardization processes used to bring Goji to the world in the form of the highly potent cold-chill processed non-pasteurized juice we love so much - Himalayan Goji™ Juice. The impact this product is having on people is already being experienced in several parts around the world. Congratulations Dr. Earl Mindell! We appreciate all you do!

About The NNFA:

Established in 1936, the National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA) is the oldest and largest, non-profit trade organization dedicated to protecting and advancing the natural products industry for both retailers and suppliers. The organization is made up of nearly 8,000 retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors of natural products, including foods, dietary supplements and health and beauty aids.

NNFA unites a diverse membership, from the smallest health food store to the largest dietary supplement manufacturer. NNFA is recognized for its strong lobbying presence in Washington, D.C., where it serves as the industry watchdog on regulatory and legislative issues.

In 1994, NNFA played a key role in the passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). This important legislation strikes a balance between the need for consumers to have access to and information about safe and effective dietary supplements while also preserving the government's interest in protecting the public from unsafe products and false and misleading claims.

In addition to offices in Newport Beach, California, and Washington, DC, NNFA has seven regional offices located throughout the United States and is governed by a 22-member board of directors.

Living with Arthritis

"Arthritis" is actually an umbrella term for more than 100 medical conditions that collectively affect nearly 70 million adults (about one in every three) and 300,000 children in America alone.

Today's Produce May Contain Fewer Nutrients?

Supporters of vitamins and nutrition supplements are about to get some surprising backing in the form of a new study released in the "Journal of the American College of Nutrition" published in December 2004.

Cynics and skeptics alike often scoffed at supporters when they made claims that the nutritional values in food grown today have dropped in nutritional value. The cynics stated the only studies or documentation to support such claims were done in an old report dating back to the 60's ...not current data.

Well... it's time for cynics to stand aside. Don't miss the full shocking details ... read the article on the most recent study here ...and find out why we are such strong supporters of supplementing your diet with Goji Juice.

Vitamin D Rises In Importance

An article released by the New York Times on Dec. 29, 2004 is pushing the often overlooked and undervalued Vitamin D to the forefront.

We've often heard experts claim eating a balanced diet with enough calcium and Vitamin D is a key step in the prevention of osteoporosis.

However, it's quite possible the often overlooked Vitamin D is far more important to us all. It's even possible the USDA may be raising the RDA on this essential vitamin.
