The First Lady of Natural Health and Aged Garlic Extract

We're all in for a treat this week! Patricia Bragg, president of Bragg Live Foods, is one of the most uplifting, positive health crusaders we have ever met. Her father Paul Bragg's story of helping a young, ailing Jack LaLanne to turn his life around is legendary. Patricia just won three awards, including a lifetime achievement award and recognition from the U.S. Congress. Patricia, the author of many books on natural health, will share with us her secrets for vibrant health and true longevity.  We are also excited to speak with Jay Levy of Wakunaga about the many health benefits of aged garlic extract. Jay will talk to us about current research on aged garlic extract which focuses on cholesterol, high blood pressure, homocysteine levels, immune stimulation, cognitive effects and liver function effects. Not all garlic products have the same benefits or smell the same, Jay will tell us more. First, we'll speak with Julia Ritchie, Oceans Associate at Environment California, about an environmental victory in California! The California legislature voted today to ban the possession, sale and distribution of shark fins. As 85% of dried shark fin imports come through California, this vote should help protect many shark species which are at the brink of extinction.
