BodyHealth Inflam-Arrest Usage Guide: Quantity and Consistency Are Key

by Dr. David Minkoff May 21, 2020 4 min read 0 Comments

If you suffer chronic inflammation, chances are you’ve tried everything you could think of to make the pain go away.

The usual solutions people turn to include:

  • Over-the-counter drugs to reduce the pain
  • Special stretches and exercises
  • Prescription medication
  • Herbal remedies

For most people, these solutions fail to provide consistent, long-term relief.

Medications provide short-term relief, special exercises help to some extent, but herbal remedies or supplements may not have worked as well as you hoped.

The Low-Sugar Con Part 1: Maltodextrin
The Low-Sugar Con Part 1: Maltodextrin

by Dr. David Minkoff May 21, 2020 4 min read 0 Comments

In today’s highly competitive economy, the new normal is for food manufacturers to use marketing ploys to make their products appear healthy – even when they aren’t.

Maltodextrin is one of the most common, hidden-in-plain-sight cons on the market today. It is glorified, processed sugar that masquerades as “carbs.”

It might sound unbelievable, but read the following quote from BellChem – a top US producer of maltodextrin:

“Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate that can be hundreds of sugar molecules in length, which is much larger than the simple carbohydrate arrangement of glucose. Many soft drinks and other flavored beverages contain maltodextrin in their formulas so that they can have a lower amount of sugar on their nutrition facts labels. On the nutrition label, maltodextrin is included under the “Total Carbohydrate” heading, instead of the “sugars” label.”

Lt. Colonel Ed's Journal: The Iron Warrior Challenge

The Infantry Battalion that I am fortunate enough to command - 3-187 Infantry, the Iron Rakkasans - conducts an event each Spring called the Iron Warrior Challenge (IWC). 

The IWC can be a single event or a series of events designed to test Soldiers physically and mentally. The purpose of this event is to link the currently serving Soldiers with those who previously served in the unit, and to remember those that have gone before us and all they endured in the service of our Great Nation. The event was started by GEN (retired) David Petraeus when he commanded the Iron Rakkasans in the early 90s, and has continued on ever since.
