Review, "Looking Younger, Living Longer"

Last night I had the opportunity of listening to Mary Roberts Smith, author of "Looking Younger, Living Longer." She largely spoke on the vitamin industry, touching slightly on herbs and their benefits.

She mentioned that only 2% of vitamins are inspected before coming into the US and 6 major vitamin companies import directly from China. She talked about the makeup of many vitamins and the chemicals that make up our vitamin products. She urged that information needs to be more readily available on synthetic vitamins.

She then talked about the benefits of herbs. Cayenne pepper to stop bleeding, garlic as a blood pressure and blood glucose regulator, aloe vera as a pain killer, natural antibiotic and burn relief.

She also touched on the benefits of probiotics and antioxidants.
