Fish is great for your body (and it tastes fabulous sprinkled with True Lemon!), but when you’re in the supermarket, how do you tell which fish are fished out or full of mercury?
California’s Monterey Bay Aquarium has the answer! Their Seafood Watch program gives advice on buying seafood from sustainable sources. Just visit SeafoodWatch.org, choose your region, and you’ll get the low down.
Due to the nuclear power plant crisis in Japan, sellers of potassium iodide supplements are raking in the profits. And recently the World Health Organization issued a warning against eating too much iodized table salt, which can be deadly.
Why are people buying up iodide and eating table salt? Because they’ve heard potassium iodide can protect the thyroid gland from the radioactive form of iodine released by nuclear accidents.
One in three Americans is in danger of developing Type 2 diabetes. To help fight the epidemic, the American Diabetes Association wants one million people to take their online Diabetes Risk Test before April 22.

Get out your pen! Self Magazine recently made a list of 50 healthy snacks to shop for. Some you can buy off the shelf, some you throw together, like the cucumber and yogurt with cashews, lemon juice (or True Lemon!) and fresh dill combo idea.
Note: a lot of brand names are mentioned on this list. At True Citrus we’re partial to all-natural, so we suggest avoiding products with high-sodium, sugars, artificial colors and especially artificial sweeteners, since they don’t do anything for your body, and may even cause weight gain!
We also like Self’s 20 Superfoods for Weight Loss. These could make some fabulous meals! Some of the foods, like steak and chiles, are surprising, but we’re more than happy to incorporate them into our lives!

It’s a stereotype that Irish people drink a lot. But it’s true that for many, Irish or not, a big part of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is having drinks with friends.
In case you wake up on March 18 with a headache and nausea instead of a pot of gold, try a cupful of green tea with True Lemon, a cure that’s even the right color!
Ever get a strange, empty sensation in your stomach after drinking a diet soda? You might not be imagining things. A Purdue University study discovered that eating or drinking artificial sweeteners triggers a response in our bodies that not only makes us hold on to calories, but that makes us want to eat even more!
What? Could this help explain why, even though we think we’re doing our bodies a favor by choosing diet products, lots of us are heavier than ever?
Get ready to move your clock forward March 13th! And we do mean get ready. As with any time change, it’s important to stay healthy and alert by getting plenty of rest, exercise and keeping hydrated!
