Royal River Natural Foods releases May 2015 issue of “Natural Insights for Well Being®.”

Royal River Natural Foods, a locally-owned independent natural health store in Freeport, Maine, reports on a new study that found two natural nutrients, glucosamine and chondroitin, relieved pain, stiffness, joint swelling and improved physical function as well as standard drug treatment after six months in people with severe osteoarthritis of the knee.

The report is part of the May 2015 issue of “Natural Insights for Well Being®,” which Royal River Natural Foods publishes for free each month to help inform the Freeport community of the latest nutrition science. Also in the May issue, women who took a multivitamin-mineral for more than three years were 35 percent less likely to have died from heart disease after 19 years of follow-up compared to women who didn’t take multivitamins. Also, green tea was found to enhance exercise performance, among other important findings.

“We all want to live high-quality, pain-free lives, and new studies of natural nutrients continue to show promise that we can,” said Becky Foster, Supplement Manager at Royal River Natural Foods. “We are proud to present new scientific findings from well respected, peer-reviewed scientific journals, including the ‘Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases,’ the ‘Journal of Nutrition,’ ‘Supportive Care in Cancer,’ and several others,” Foster said.

“Natural Insights for Well Being®” is free, and Royal River Natural Foods invites all those who wish to gain more valuable nutrition knowledge to stop in and pick up the May issue and meet the friendly, knowledgeable staff.
