U.S. Wellness News Alert

Your Diet Needs More Omega-3's!
Sugar Free Garlic Franks Are Back!

January 16, 2011
Monticello, Missouri


Dear John,
Snowy Trees
We hope this week's newsletter finds you in warmer weather than we are!  Northeast Missouri was blanketed with snowfall earlier this week, followed with temperatures in the single digits.  We are hoping for warmer weather next week - but still enjoying the deep snowfall! 

Are you still working on your New Year's Resolution to eat healthier?  Omega-3's are anti-inflammatory essential fatty acids that are imperative for human growth and development, and can help your health in a multitude of other ways: they can help reduce your risk of heart disease, lower your blood pressure and even fight depression.  According to this WebMD article, there are currently many studies taking place testing the effectiveness of Omega-3's against Alzheimer's, obesity, and even cancer.   


How can you get more Omega-3's in your diet?  Simple - wild-caught seafood is the most popular choice.  Our wild-caught Salmon, Tuna, or Mackerel are all excellent choices.  Grazing animals eat forage that is naturally rich in Omega-3's, and then pass those valuable nutrients onto us.  Grass-fed beef has been shown to have higher Omega-3 levels than its grain-fed counterpart.  If you're looking for a healthy snack, walnuts have also been shown to have high Omega-3 levels.  Our Sockeye Salmon Oil Softgels are also an easy way to add Omega-3's and Vitamin D to your diet.  

Don't forget about the upcoming Fresh Chilled Beef deadline next Friday, January 28.  Please have all orders in by 12:00 noon CST to ensure shipping on Wednesday, February 2.  Fresh Filet Mignon would make a sweet surprise for your Valentine!  

Now is a great time to stock up on our famous Beef Brauschweiger, as it is on sale this week.  Be sure and visit our recipe section today for an enticing Rosemary Lamb Chop - which is sure to fill your home with the delicious aroma of cooking herbs!

We would like to thank all of our customers for their patience with FedEx this week after the massive winter storms in the Midwest and on the East Coast.  Hopefully the winter weather will be calmer from here on out!

Question and Answer Column

Eric Seranno

Dear Dr. Serrano,

Since it's winter and I can't tan in the sun like I usually do in the summer, should I take a Vitamin D supplement?  If so, which company do you recommend? 




Dear George, 

Sorry but tanning is not enough.  Yes, I do recommend taking Vitamin D.  Although you did not state your age, I will assume you are between 20 and 30 because you are tanning.  I would take at least 6000 IU, and again this is a recommendation without knowing where you live, but again I am assuming Midwest or North.   


I would take Vitamin D from a whole food source, including Standard Process or Innate Vitamin D, call (800) 634-6342 and use code SER030.

Good luck,

Dr. Serrano

Center Cut Shoulder RoastDear US Wellness,

I loved the roasts, jerky, and pemmican

The pemmican and ground meat make a delicious meat loaf.  I made it for some friends and they couldn't get enough!

All the best,

US Wellness - Supporting Our Troops

Supporting Our Troops
As the war on terror continues to rage in the Middle East, we continue to follow and support our troops both at home and abroad who work daily to protect our freedom.  Beginning in our 2011 News Alerts we will focus on different organizations and individuals who are making a difference in the lives of our American Soldiers.

This week we would like to introduce to our readers the Lone Survivor Foundation that is working to help our wounded warriors and their families.  Want to get involved?  It's easy - start by "liking" them on Facebook, and visit their website for more ways to help out. 

The Lone Survivor Foundation was founded by Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, the lone survivor of the tragic Operation Redwing, in honor of his fallen comrades.  He wrote a book describing his heroic journey as a Navy SEAL, and on the fifth anniversary of Operation Redwing, he and Sharon Henderson launched the Lone Survivor Foundation.  See his Today Show interview to listen to his touching story.
