Pearls of Health

Trimethylamine‑N‑oxide is a molecule produced by the bacteria in the digestive system which has been shown to increase the risk of heart and blood vessel disease by 2 1/2 times. When certain bacteria are exposed to lecithin and Lcarnitine, trimethylamine-N-oxide levels are increased.

This is because flesh meats are high in L-carnitine. In a study reported in the May 2014 issue of Nature Medicine, meat‑eaters produced more trime-thylamine‑N‑oxide after meals containing a measured amount of l‑carnitine than did vegans; meat‑eaters also harbored more of the types of bacteria that metabolize l‑carnitine into trimethylamine‑N‑oxide. We have been counseled, “Concerning flesh meat we can all say, Let it alone. (CD 430). Why not make 2014 the time that you with prayer and God’s strength, “Let it (flesh meat) alone,” for better health!
