Sláinte from Well Within!


There's a famous Irish saying that goes:

"There are only two kinds of people in the world, the Irish and those who wish they were."

Here at Well Within, we believe half of that saying is true. There are only two kinds of people, but we prefer "the healthy and those who wish they were."


Recent Studies Confirm Vitamin D Outperforms Flu Vaccine

5224823967 c518651c26 o-2b70d364dbcf88628e16188e96cb545ae3ce886c-s900-c85

According to the CDC, the highest percentage of flu cases historically occur in February. A word of warning, though: March is third among the months that make up the "flu season," which means we're not out of the woods yet.

Some encouraging news, however, comes to us from the British Medical Journal, which has concluded that there is an alternative approach to warding off the illness, that costs the United States roughly $10 billion annually.

Vitamin D.

A theory published in 2006, by Dr. John Cannell, the founder of the Vitamin D Council, argued that the vitamin D deficiency may actually be an underlying cause of influenza. Since his theory was published, several studies have confirmed that vitamin D supplementation has proven to be more effective than the flu vaccine at preventing contraction.

A recent scientific study has reached the following conclusion:

"According to this international research team, vitamin D supplementation could prevent more than 3.25 million cases of cold and flu each year in the U.K. alone. Another statistic showing vitamin D is a more effective strategy than flu vaccine is the "number needed to treat" (NNT).

Overall, one person would be spared from influenza for every 33 people taking a vitamin D supplement (NNT = 33), whereas 40 people have to receive the flu vaccine in order to prevent one case of the flu (NNT = 40).

Among those with severe vitamin D deficiency at baseline, the NNT was 4. In other words, if you're vitamin D deficient to begin with, vitamin D supplementation is 10 times more effective than the flu vaccine."

Are You Getting the Most From Your Green Tea?


The word "superfood" is tossed around so often these days, it's rare to find a delicacy that legitimately qualifies. Green tea, however, is one of the few. It's been revered by those in China and East India for centuries, and science is finally beginning to understand why.

Beyond the anecdotal evidence, green tea has been proved to have a number of health benefits, including:

•boosting metabolism and burning fat

•lowers trigylceride levels, reducing risk for heart disease

•regulates blood sugar levels

•treats viral hepatitis

•reduces inflammation associated with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis

•lowers the risk of skin, lung, stomach, bladder, breast, pancreatic, prostate and ovarian cancer

•improves mental clarity

•promotes digestion

Featured Supplement of the Month


Greens First Pro by Greens First®

"With today's busy lifestyles and fast food diets, you can't always get the recommended 7-13 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. Plus, reports indicate that the nutritional quality of food has dropped considerably in the past 10-20 years as soils are depleted and lacking in essential minerals, vitamins and trace nutrients. Many foods are processed and in a box that robs them of more of their remaining nutritional value. And foods that are cooked lose still more nutrients.

That's where Greens First® can help! Greens First® is the best tasting and Non-GMO complete phytonutrient and antioxidant supplement that works synergistically in your body so you can be sure you are getting phytonutrients, antioxidants, and more that your body needs every day!*

Greens First® contains Certified Organic fruits, vegetables and barley grass which are first juiced, then spray dried at low temperatures, leaving all the important nutrients and live enzymes intact.

Join the Greens First® Revolution to maximize your health and overall well-being!"

Well Within proudly carries Greens First Pro and several other products from Greens First®.
