FALSE ALARM

Amazing Wellness - - AMAZING NEWS -

Over the long term, re­search has found that car­ni­tine is ben­e­fi­cial for the heart, but a few years ago, one study raised con­cerns that the nu­tri­ent may be the cul­prit in higher rates of heart disease among red-meat eaters. More re­cent re­search, how­ever, shows that this risk is ac­tu­ally re­lated to an im­bal­ance of gut bac­te­ria. To help pre­vent such an im­bal­ance, it’s help­ful to choose meat with­out an­tibi­otics, hor­mones, pes­ti­cides, and herbicides (found in in­dus­trial an­i­mal feed), and to take pro­bi­otic sup­ple­ments that con­tain a va­ri­ety of ben­e­fi­cial bac­te­ria.
