ANNIVERSARY EPIC SAVINGS 24-29

Dear Neighbors, Crew, and that calico cat peeking through the window:

Happy August! Have you heard? We’re having a birthday party, and you’re all invited! It’s been 67 years since Margaret and Philip Isely went door-to-door in Golden, Colorado edu- cating their neighbors about nutrition. And here we are, 162-plus stores later, still committed to our founding mission. So, naturally, we’re in the mood to celebrate. But it’s not the how or the what we want to acknowledge as we stroll back through the years—it’s the WHO! When our parents (and parents-in-law and grandparents) opened their store in Lakewood, Colorado, it was in a house in the neighborhood, and everyone who came through the door was treated like a friend. The smell of herbs and spices filled the air, punctuated by the sound of laughter shared between folks. People lined up to talk to Margaret about nutrition and, we suspect, just to connect with someone who genuinely cared. Time has taken us a long way from that first cottage, but we hope you know that this is what Natural Grocers ® is still about at its core. We’re a neighborhood grocery store where Nutrition Education, healthy food, and planet-prioritizing practices are the air we live and breathe, and you’re the reason why! Integrity, dedication, creativity—good4u SM Crew, we’re talking about you! Your grit, good cheer, and diverse perspectives infuse Natural Grocers with purpose and passion. Some of you have been with us for years, and others are brand new, but all of you are why we’re still here, on a mission to empower healthier people and a healthier planet. Thank you! And finally, to the woman who is the reason we choose August to celebrate

FOR THE LOVE OF ORGANICS: With the all the sweetness and beauty peaches bring us in the summer months, it’s no wonder artists from Monet to Van Gogh, poets galore, and even Justin Bieber have been inspired by this beloved fruit with a treasure trove of health benefits! PEACHES By Morgaine Lee

Resid-EW! Is there anything that could take away from the sweetness of a perfectly ripe peach? Only the bitter fact that peaches are a regular on the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) Dirty Dozen list. Conventional peaches are notoriously coated in a number of di erent pesticide residues, including insecticides and fungicides. As a much- loved staple in baby foods, a study was conducted to determine how much pesticide residue is in peach purées used in baby food after processing. Though some residues were mostly removed by washing and peeling, researchers found that vinclozolin and procymidone, known endocrine disruptors, could not be removed, and were in fact increased in the purée. These fungicides have antiandrogenic action, which means they stop the androgen hormones, such as testosterone, from binding with its receptors, interfering with bone and muscle development, fertility, and healthy hormone function. Whether fresh, frozen, or preserved, always choose organic to protect you and your little ones from nasty pesticide residues! The Birds and the Bees and the Peaches in the Trees Peach blossoms bloom into golden fruits, hanging heavy in rows in orchards vibrant with life. Birds and bees float from tree to tree, pollinating, perching, and perhaps taking the occasional bite of aromatic peach. We’re not the only species with a love of peaches! The fungicide vinclozolin that’s harmful to the human endocrine system can also harm birds and their reproductive cycles—birds who dwell around conventional peach orchards are at risk. , Bees and other pollinators of this sweet stone-fruit are also at risk of harm due to the use of neonicotinoids such as dinotefuran, an insecticide that has been shown to lead to a decline in honeybee populations. Studies have shown organic farming increases biodiversity, has a lower carbon footprint, and even produces more nutrient-dense crops. Choosing organic

Peachy Keen on Health Benefits Though the summer season always seems to pass too quickly, let the world slow down a little, bask in the glorious juiciness of a peach in every recipe you can sneak it into—your body will surely thank you. Peaches are a great source of vitamins A and C and the carotenoid antioxidants lutein and beta carotene. These nutrients support your eye health, immune system, and keep your skin healthy and glowing. These delicious fruits are also an excellent source of polyphenols that help protect the body from the everyday stressors that cause oxidative damage in our bodies. , , Many of the juicy benefits are most concentrated in peach skins—as much as double the amount of polyphenols can be found in the skins as opposed to the flesh—so it’s best to eat the skin along with the juicy flesh, and always choose organic peaches without residues to keep the benefits in, and the pesticides out!

O, to take what we love inside, to carry within us an orchard, to eat not only the skin, but the shade, not only the sugar, but the days, to hold the fruit in our hands, adore it, then bite into the round jubilance of peach. to carry within us an orchard, to eat the fruit in our ha

Quick and easy for any time, yet elegant enough for a special occasion, these scrumptious grilled peaches are amust-try. The thyme in the honey drizzle lends a subtle herbaceous hint to complement the sweet summer peaches. Topped with a scoop of ice cream, it’s a perfect summer treat! Grilled Peaches with Honey-Thyme Dri le

Ingredients •

Serves: 4 | Prep time: 5 minutes | Grilling time: 10 minutes Total time: 20 minutes (including 5 minutes for preheating grill)

4 ripe, but firmmedium organic peaches

1 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions 1. Preheat grill to medium heat (~350° F). Slice peaches in half along their seams and twist to remove the pit. 2. While the grill heats, place a small grill-safe saucepan on the grill and melt the coconut oil (the handle will be hot, be sure to use a potholder). Brush the cut side of the peaches with the coconut oil. Once the grill is hot, place the peaches on the grill, cut side down. Grill for 3-4 minutes before turning each peach 90 degrees and grilling another 3-4 minutes. Peaches should be just tender and have nice grill marks. 3. While the peaches grill, heat the honey and thyme in the saucepan (no need to clean) directly on the grill for 5-10 minutes. Honey should just simmer gently; watch to avoid boiling. 4. To serve, place two peach halves cut-side-up in a dish, drizzle each with a little thyme-infused honey, and a dollop of your choice of topping. Sprinkle with chopped fresh thyme leaves if desired and serve immediately.

• ¼ cup Natural Grocers ® Brand Raw and Unfiltered Clover Honey • 1 (3-inch) sprig organic thyme, plus chopped thyme leaves for garnish • Dairy-free or regular vanilla ice cream, plain yogurt, whipped cream, or ricotta cheese, for serving

Note: Leftover drizzle can be used for yogurt, mixed drinks, wa es, toast, etc.

Craving a summery peach sundae?

Simply chop the grilled peaches and serve over a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream. We love the delicate flavors of peach and vanilla topped with a sprinkling of sliced almonds, crumbled shortbread cookie, a dollop of whipped cream, and finished o with a drizzle of thyme-infused honey.

at least SEVEN MILLION DEATHS are a ributed to air pollution EVERY YEAR.

Air Pollution is a Killer Here’s How to Protect Yourself.

According to the American Lung Association’s “State of the Air 2022” report, the state of our air is… well, it’s not very good. Between 2018 and 2020, the U.S. had the highest number of “very unhealthy” and “hazardous” air quality days than it ever has in the 20 years the report has been published. It also found that more than 40 percent of Americans live in places with failing grades for unhealthy levels of particulate pollution or ozone, and that “People of color were 61% more likely than white people to live in a county with a failing grade for at least one pollutant, and 3.6 times as likely to live in a county with failing grades for all three pollutants [measured].” Pollution levels in many areas of the United States exceed national air quality standards for at least one of several common pollutants, including fine particulate matter, ground- level ozone, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and lead. These pollutants carry with them a number of health risks beyond lung disease. Some of the health issues associated with exposure to air pollution, especially long term, include stroke, high blood pressure, and heart disease; dementia, Alzheimer’s, depression, impaired cognition, and mental health issues in children; increased risk of miscarriage and premature birth; reduction in bone mineral density; kidney disease; and a reduction in life expectancy. Fine particulate matter, commonly found in smoke (an ever- increasing problem with the recent increase in wildfires) and emissions from power plants and vehicles, is of particular concern for health because it can penetrate body tissues and organs, “posing an even greater risk of systemic health impacts.” This fine particulate matter has been implicated in cardiovascular disease, lung disease, and neurodegeneration and dementia.

Avoiding exposure to air pollution—especially ambient, or outdoor, pollution—may feel out of our control, but we can control how well-equipped our bodies are to handle the inevitable exposure. Here’s how to protect yourself.

EPA & DHA. Much of the damage wrought by air pollution is through its ability to increase oxidative damage and inflammation in our bodies. The omega-3 fats EPA and DHA are well-known to have anti-inflammatory e ects and new research is showing that they have the potential to mitigate the harmful e ects of air pollution, including fine particulate matter. A 2020 study published in the journal Neurology examined the e ects of omega-3 fat consumption on brain size in 1,315 dementia-free women between the ages of 65 and 80. Researchers found that exposure to particulate matter from air pollution reduced brain size, but these e ects were mitigated in the women who had higher blood levels and dietary intakes of EPA and DHA. The women with higher blood levels and dietary intakes of the omega-3s had “significantly greater volumes of white matter and hippocampus.” The hippocampus is the part of the brain involved in the formation of memories, learning, and emotions. Another recent study compared the e ects of dietary omega-3 and omega-6 fat intake on asthma severity in 135 asthmatic children exposed to indoor air pollution in Baltimore City; the majority of the subjects were African Americans between the ages of five and 12. The researchers analyzed the amount of omega-3 and omega-6 fats the children obtained from their diets and then measured the amount of air pollution and particulate matter each child was exposed to in their homes. The researchers found that high omega-6 intake (commonly found in soy, corn, and cottonseed oils and prevalent in fast food and other highly processed foods) amplified the e ects of indoor particulate matter, particularly systemic inflammation, and was associated with increased asthma severity and reduced lung function. However, in the children with higher omega-3 fat intakes, the negative e ects of particulate matter exposure were diminished and asthma symptoms were reduced. Previous research has also found that the omega-3s reduce oxidative damage caused by fine particulate matter in part by significantly increasing the activity of the body’s internal antioxidant system. The most e ective way to increase your levels of the omega-3s is to take 2-3 grams of a high-quality fish oil daily. B vitamins. The B vitamins folate, B6, and B12 have been shown to reduce the e ects of fine particulate matter on the cardiovascular system, particularly in those with an “MTHFR” gene variation, who are also at a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Research has found that a higher intake of these B vitamins prevents the negative e ect exposure to fine particulate matter has on heart rate variability (HRV); exposure to fine particulate matter decreases HRV, which is associated with increased cardiovascular disease and death.

Fine particulate matter , commonly found in smoke (think wildfires) and emissions from power plants and vehicles, is of particular concern for health because it can penetrate

body tissues and organs.

12 | Health Hotline ®

Additionally, a 2017 study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reported that folic acid, B6, and B12 could prevent the negative e ects fine particulate matter has on DNA, mitochondrial energy metabolism, and methylation. In simple terms, methylation is a biochemical process in which “methyl groups” are added to DNA or proteins to help them function correctly. Healthy methylation is essential to overall health, and these B vitamins are critical to that process. In this study, researchers found that exposure to fine particulate matter induced negative methylation changes in genes involved in mitochondrial energy production. Supplementation with the B vitamins prevented these changes and also protected mitochondrial DNA. A high-quality B complex supplement will ensure that you are getting adequate amounts of all of the B vitamins; look for one that includes the methylated forms of folate and B12. Vitamins C & E. Because air pollution increases oxidative damage in our bodies, it is of utmost importance to arm your body with plenty of antioxidant nutrients. Vitamins C and E are two of the best, and are especially important when it comes to protecting the lungs. Both of these antioxidants are found in the lungs and have long been studied for their protective e ects against air pollution. When exposed to di erent types of air pollution including ozone, fine particulate matter, and nitrogen dioxide, the lung’s natural antioxidant defenses are depleted, making it critical to replenish them. Vitamins C and E enhance the activity of the lungs’ internal antioxidant defenses, restoring antioxidant levels back to normal and e ectively decreasing oxidative damage. Further, a number of studies show that supplementation with C and E protects normal lung function in children and adults, with and without asthma, when exposed to both acute and long-term air pollution. Aim for at least 500 mg of vitamin C and 400 mg of vitamin E daily. Phytonutrients. EPA and DHA, the B vitamins, and the antioxidant vitamins C and E are wonderful foundational nutrients that support whole-body health in addition to protecting your body from air pollution. There are also certain phytonutrients that are proving to have a powerful protective e ect. Broccoli sprouts are a concentrated source of sulforaphane , a potent inducer of the body’s detoxification enzymes. Research has found that regular consumption helps the body detoxify airborne pollutants. While broccoli sprouts are one of the most concentrated sources of this compound, other cruciferous veggies like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, and cabbage also contain sulforaphane. Be sure to include plenty of cruciferous vegetables in your daily diet and consider supplementing with broccoli sprouts, which will ensure that you get optimal amounts of sulforaphane. Human lung and bronchial cell studies have found that the polyphenol antioxidant resveratrol , commonly found in grape skins, reduces oxidative damage and inflammation caused by air pollutants, including diesel exhaust particles and nickel. Quercetin , a flavonoid antioxidant found in onions and apples, was shown to attenuate the oxidative and inflammatory damage in the o spring of pregnant mice exposed to fine particulate matter; the mothers were protected as well. The researchers wrote, “Taking a proper dose of quercetin as dietary supplements during pregnancy may have beneficial e ects on health.” Exposure to particulate matter during pregnancy is known to be harmful to fetal development and children’s long-term health.

The Takeaway

Exposure to air pollution— particularly to fine particulate matter—is one of the biggest environmental health risks in the U.S. Exposure, especially long term, can lead to a myriad of health problems by increasing inflammation and oxidative damage throughout our bodies. The best way we can protect ourselves is to arm our bodies with plenty of antioxidant and anti- inflammatory support. A nutrient- dense diet full of antioxidant-rich vegetables and anti-inflammatory fats goes a long way in supporting general health, including protecting against environmental assaults like air pollution. Amp up the protection with supplements that have a proven track record and you’ll be able to confidently breathe in the air, polluted or not. For references, email customerservice@naturalgrocers.com

NUT ITION BYTES By Geoff Brokx and Shelby Miller

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), six million children su er from asthma, which disproportionately a ects minority children. Compounding the problem, younger generations are facing higher levels of air pollution than we have seen in decades, but a recent study shows the powerful impact nutritional interventions can have in protecting the body. The study, from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice , examined the relationship between vitamin D levels and asthma severity in 120 children exposed to indoor air pollution in Baltimore, MD (one-third of the children were considered obese). The subjects were evaluated at the beginning of the study and three more times over nine months. The researchers found low vitamin D levels exacerbated the harmful e ects of air pollution, particularly in the obese children with asthma, while adequate vitamin D levels had protective e ects and were associated with fewer asthma symptoms. Harmful Effects of Air Pollution Reduced by Vitamin D in Obese Children with Asthma

Vitamin D is well known to support a healthy inflammatory and immune response, and with its protective e ects against air pollution, having adequate levels may now be as important as ever. Vitamin D supplements o er an easy and a ordable way to achieve healthy levels.

Resveratrol Wards Off Cognitive Decline in Postmenopausal Women

A recent study has shown that low- dose resveratrol supplementation leads to improved insulin sensitivity, cerebrovascular health, and cognitive function in postmenopausal women. Compared to placebo, resveratrol improved overall cognitive performance by 33 percent and showed especially strong results in women at least 65 years old in verbal memory scores compared to women younger than 65 years. These results are important because cognitive decline is a concern in postmenopausal women. The newest study was a part of the RESHAW study, a 24-month randomized, placebo-controlled crossover trial including 125 postmenopausal women, aged 45 to 85 years. Subjects took 75 milligrams of

vasoactive compound; it has been shown in several other clinical studies to have numerous health benefits. The authors note that the risk of dementia and cerebrovascular diseases (such as stroke) increase after menopause and are emerging as the leading causes of death in older women. Resveratrol supplementation delivers on both, helping to maintain both cognitive and vascular health. The RESHAWexit survey showed that more than half the women in the study reported that their perceived memory, mood, and other aspects of living were improved with the supplements. Moreover, the researchers also reported that 88 percent of the women in the study said they would likely continue to supplement with resveratrol once the study ended.

trans-resveratrol twice daily or placebo and then crossed over to alternate treatment for another 12 months. Resveratrol is a compound most famously found in red wine that is both a strong antioxidant and a potent

TOXIC LEGACY Stephanie Seneff, PhD

DEEP NUTRITION Catherine Shanahan, M.D.

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup, the most commonly used weedkiller in the world. Nearly 300 million pounds of glyphosate-based herbicide are sprayed on farms and food every year. Throughout Toxic Legacy readers will discover the uniquely toxic nature of glyphosate; how glyphosate disrupts the microbiome, leading to gut dysbiosis, autoimmunity, neurodegeneration; and why we’re seeing a rise in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, infertility, depression, and anxiety. Includes important nutritional guidance for conscientious consumers who want to avoid glyphosate-contaminated foods and support their health.

Expanded edition of the self-published phenomenon highlights the latest groundbreaking discoveries in nutrition and epigenetics, and offers a plan to help us tap into nature’s power for long, vital lives.
