Gallstone-related disorders are common and costly, but preventive measures are largely unexplored. Lifestyle risk factors include physical activity, obesity/overweight, and diet. Increasing consumption of magnesium appears to decrease the risk of symptomatic gallstones in men.

Culinary Herbs and Chronic Disease
Polyphenolic compounds from edible plants are the main source of antioxidants in the human diet. Culinary herbs and spices provide high concentrations of these active compounds which have been shown to decrease non-enzymatic glycation of proteins, which produce advanced glycation end products, a process common to diabetes and Alzhiemers disease.
More food for thought on chronic disease, glutamine and arginine
A recent study has demonstrated the importance of glutamine as a precursor in the synthesis of arginine. Among other things, arginine has been found to have antioxidant activity as it has been found to inhibit the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, a known step in the development of atherosclerosis, as well as demonstrating immunomodulatory activity.
The Institute for Progressive Medicine offers several pharmaceutical grade glutamine and argenine preparations.
Chillin with a cup of tea may help those with diabetes
Drinking chamomile tea daily with meals may help prevent the complications of diabetes according to researchers. Chamomile-supplemented animals showed a significant decrease in blood glucose levels compared with the controls, researchers say. The extract also showed significant inhibition of both ALR2 enzymes and sorbitol, whose elevated levels are associated with increased diabetic complications.
