Wigram Skies resident at

breaking point with trucks

• By Emily O’Connell

MORE RESIDENTS in

Wigram Skies’ Lodestar Ave

want big, noisy trucks stopped

from driving through their

neighbourhood.

And one with a disabled

daughter says she will now have

to sell up.

Wanda Waites, who lives

on the corner of Lodestar and

Corsair Dr said “the trucks are

driving me mad.”

They wake her daughter Tara

up at 5am every day of the week.

Lady Wigram Retirement Village

residents are also campaigning

to stop the trucks, saying they

get woken up at 4.30am.

Ms Waites said she plans to

sell up and move to somewhere

quieter.

She wants Halswell Ward city

councillor Anne Galloway and

Wigram MP Megan Woods to be

more proactive in stopping the

trucks.

Cr Galloway and Dr Woods

will meet this Friday to discuss

the issue.

Dr Woods said yesterday the

trucks are a real problem and

it is a horrible situation for Ms

Waites.

The city council is due to bring

in the citywide Traffic and Parking

Bylaw 2017 by the end of the

year which will allow restrictions

to be placed on streets.

THE ANTE is about to be

Galloway, and Wigram MP

Megan Woods.

Our reporter Emily O’Connell

knocked on a few doors in Lodestar

Ave, Wigram, yesterday and

no surprises over what she found

– people have had a gutsful of

the big trucks (see page 1).

This should come as no surprise

to Galloway and Woods

Western News has reported on

this issue for some months, and

the matter went international

when rest home owner John

Tooby was recorded having a go

at his tenants over their campaign

to stop the trucks.

But as we found yesterday it’s

not only the rest home residents

having to put up with the noisy

trucks – the whole neighbourhood

is.

Users object to library closure

• By Emily O’Connell

THE CITY council is in the

firing line after closing the

Upper Riccarton War Memorial

Library.

The library’s chairwoman

Aynslie Walter said the building

was undergoing a feasibility

study when it was discovered one

part of the floor had sunk into

the foundation causing cracks in

the kitchen, toilet and walls.

City council head of building

consenting Robert Wright said

the library will reopen subject

to the required repairs being

undertaken.

“The building needs to be

compliant to the appropriate

standard so it may be safely

enjoyed by groups in the future,”

he said.

The city council asked for the

library to be closed immediately

on October 26 but Mrs Walter

objected as they needed to remove

resources.

They were then given 48 hours

to do so, which Mrs Walter said

wasn’t long enough.

“I got two car loads out – one

out on Thursday and we went in

at 6.30am on Friday. We didn’t

have the transport or the time to

do it,” she said.

Mrs Walter said the city

council will now help them with

what is left.

She said the city council has

no heart.

“To think they’ve had these

sessions on Passchendaele and

remembrance on that, and here

they are forgetting about the

memorial which was given to

them for that purpose,” she said.

The library was opened in

1919 as a memorial to those

from the district who gave their

lives in World War 1. It was

the first of seven war memorial

libraries built in New Zealand.

John Edward Hanson gifted

the site to Lady Bowen in an

exchange for her less valuable

site of the old library – which

was described as decrepit.

Mrs Walter said the library is

administered by a trust and they

own the building on behalf of

the community.

“The land was also ours, however,

it was given to the Waimairi

County Council from the committee

at the time, so they could

maintain the outside of the buildings.

There was some deal made

but records were lost when the

city council took over,” she said.

The city council and library

members met on Thursday to

discuss the situation further.

HUNTER ​

Mrs Walter said it was a

positive meeting but the trustees

need time to consider options.

She said they’re not sure how

much it would cost to repair the

library but they will look into it.

A public meeting will be held

at 10am on December 2 in the

Rannerdale Veterans Village

meeting room.

Mrs Walter said they would

like to stress that it’s the building

which has closed down, not

the library as an organisation.

She said books can be returned

to the Upper Riccarton

Library in the meantime or 80

Woodbury St, Russley.

Resident at breaking point

•From page 1

It will include allowing for the

banning of vehicles from being

parked on the road if they’re

advertised for sale, vehicles from

parking on berms, and stopping

heavy vehicles on certain streets.

Last week Cr Galloway told

Western News she doubts the

new bylaw will be of any use.

“It seems that

speed is the issue

and the recommendation

is for police

to get more involved

in monitoring this,”

Cr Galloway said.

But late last week,

Galloway tempered

her stance, sending

Western News an

email saying the

bylaw can work.

“There definitely

is still hope that it

can be used to prevent

heavy trucks

along Lodestar. Staff

cannot consider it

as an option until it

is passed,” Cr Galloway said.

Ms Waites said she would

be very disappointed if change

doesn’t come about and her ideal

outcome would be not to see any

more trucks.

She said the city council hasn’t

done anything.

Ms Waites has lived in the

house for almost five years but

since Lodestar Ave opened, she’s

had problems.

Ms Waites said the noise isn’t

the only issue, vehicles drive

at speed on the street and it’s a

safety hazard.

She said Tara can’t go outside

alone as it’s too dangerous.

Lady Wigram Retirement

Village residents

have been lobbying

since April when

they met with Cr

Galloway and Dr

Woods asking

for a bylaw to

stop trucks being

allowed to drive

through Lodestar

Ave.

It’s a short cut

to work sites in

the area and in

Selwyn.

Shela Wong,

who lives on Corsair

Drive, said the

bylaw is an “awesome”

idea.

She said the trucks are too big

and noisy to driving on residential

streets.

Miss Wong said the yellow

pedestrian bars on Corsair Drive

have been knocked over a few

times as large trucks struggle

to make the tight turn onto

Lodestar.

Skate parks delayed

• By Emily O’Connell

THE TWO planned skate parks

in Halswell have been delayed.

After three years of planning,

the Halswell Domain and

Knights Stream skate parks are

now expected to be ready by

late April, instead of January as

initially planned.

In June, Western News reported

the cost would be $344,605

and $350,000 respectively.

The consent process has taken

longer than expected and, as a

result, construction of both parks

has been delayed.

City councillor Vicki Buck said

the consent application for the

Knights Stream skate park was

lodged last week and still needs

to be granted, which can take up

to 20 working days.

The city council won’t know

if both sites will be managed

together until a contractor has

been selected.

Cr Buck said the Halswell

Domain skate park still required

further stormwater basin design

work.

“All design work needs to be

completed for the consent application.

We are aiming to have the

design and application ready to

lodge mid-November. The timing

of that consent may depend

on the response,” she said.

Cr Buck said the delay was

frustrating and she understands

people will be disappointed. She

also said the delays were not due

to poor planning.

Halswell Residents’ Association

secretary David Hawke said

it was disappointing, but they’ve

been waiting 10 years for the

parks and another few months

wasn’t an issue.

He said they’ve got a group of

young people who have to travel

to Prebbleton to get to the closest

skate park.

“It will mean that we’re starting

to get amenities within the

community that meet the needs

of all the people,” Mr Hawke

said. Construction for both parks

is now expected to begin in mid

to late January and run for 15

weeks.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Young directors making their mark

• By Julia Evans

AVONHEAD’S Simon Brown

could soon be following in the

footsteps of Kiwi director Taika

Waititi.

While Waititi has been

smashing box offices records

with his new movie Thor:

Ragnarok, Simon and Nina Hogg

have created the short film A

Perfect Child.

The Christ’s and St Margaret’s

college students won the award

for best senior fiction at the

Australian Teachers of Media

Awards in Melbourne.

It tells the story of Ava, played

by St Margaret’s student Tigerlily

Perry, a girl who has lost her parents

in a car crash and has been

sent to an orphanage.

She meets Madam Murphy

(Eilish Moran, of The Court

Theatre) who runs the establishment

in a disciplined and firm

manner. Ava soon befriends

Lauren (Alice Taylor, of St Margaret’s),

but finds out that things

are not what they seem at the

orphanage.

When Lauren suddenly turns

on her, Ava discovers a laboratory

full of clones which the

orphanage is trying to make into

perfect specimens so they can be

adopted more easily.

UP-AND-COMING: Students Simon Brown and Nina Hogg

collected the award for best senior short film in Melbourne.

Taking home an award didn’t

come easily.

The 18min film took a year to

produce from start to finish and

involved more than 65 students,

mentors and teachers.

Simon said the main challenge

came from the editing process.

A Perfect Child went up against

550 entries in the ATOM awards

from across Australia and New

Zealand.

“The prize-giving was very

nerve-racking, especially when

Nina and I had to go up on stage

to collect the award. We didn’t

realise that we were required to

give a short speech and had to

improvise but it was taken very

well, which was a relief,” Simon

said.

Nina said many students put

their life and soul into the film.

“I hope our two schools (St

Margaret’s and Christ’s) continue

this collaboration as a way

to foster interest in the film industry

and highlight the talent of

our friends and fellow students,”

she said.

The ATOM presentation

was hosted by Australian TV

presenter Walt Collins and was

followed by a screening of the

winning productions at the SAE

Institute, Melbourne. The awards

Ilam and Upper

Riccarton

Residents’

Association

chairman Phil

McGoldrick

wants the

community to

get on their

bicycles

Tuesday November 7 2017

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Your Local Views

Plea to get on your bike

MANY WILL have missed or

dismissed the news recently that

there are currently 200,000 more

cars on New Zealand’s roads

than there were a year ago.

Assuming equal distribution,

that means 20,000 in the Garden

City, if we can still call our city

that. And many, of those, will

be in the Ilam area, which has

witnessed considerable intensification

in the last decade.

The problem of parking is

well trumpeted in the inner city,

but little is said or done in our

suburb where the problem is

equally acute.

The city council and

Canterbury University have

done so much to improve the

way forward for cyclists but far

too few are responding to this

incentive.

The flatness of Christchurch

is so conducive to cycling. Ask

those who dare and they will say

they beat vehicular transport

to any destination in the city

especially at peak times. And

once there, the time and expense

involved with securing a park is

obviated.

Yet Cantabrians are staying

away from cycling in their droves

and the excellent cycle lanes in

our area are forlorn.

We visited the fabulous city

BIKER: Phil McGoldrick is

encouraging people to cycle

around the city.

of Copenhagen recently. One of

the reasons for its pre-eminence

and recognition as a future city

is the population’s commitment

to cycling to achieve sensible

traffic. There, 50 per cent of the

population is biking. Cyclists

there are treated with respect, but

they earn that respect by being

responsible with all facets of

cycling. Many here tell me they

refuse to bike to work or uni to

avoid “bad hair days” – perhaps

we ought to revisit compulsory

wearing of helmets?

We also did an e-bike tour

in Europe and power assisted

bikes are certainly an eye to the

future. If nothing changes and

we clutch on to our predilection

with the motor vehicle, the

price we ultimately pay will

be frightening. More streets

will be blocked, traffic flows

more painful, verges, lawns

and gardens sacrificed, and our

sacred environment further

compromised. Perhaps the

time is right to delve deep into

your shed or at least test ride an

e-bike.

Jan Fortune

Enthusiastic about promoting the status

Hoon Hay’s Jan Fortune

is a member of Zonta

and is the chair of the

team which runs the

Canterbury Secondary

Schools Zonta Awards.

She is now 71 and has

battled cancer, been an

Australasian champion at

archery and worked in the

medical realm. She talks

to Emily O’Connell

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Auckland and

lived there until I moved to

Christchurch in 1982. We moved

down to Christchurch for my

husband’s job, he’s a medical

photographer, so he came down

here for a promotion. His job

was at The Princess Margaret

Hospital at the time but now it’s

in the main hospital.

What got you into volunteering?

When I became qualified as a

medical laboratory technologist

in 1970, I wanted to go overseas.

So I decided to volunteer in

Papua New Guinea for two

years. It was a great experience

but there wasn’t as much work

on as planned. Because of this,

CRAFT: Jan Fortune at the Christchurch Guild of Weavers and Spinners class at the Tannery.

I started up Girl Guides. I spent

my afternoons teaching Guides

to the local children and they

were very enthusiastic. One day

when I was doing a sponsored

walkathon, I saw a man collecting

money in a Scout uniform.

The next day I saw him again at

the bank and I thought he looked

quite nice. I was then introduced

to him at a party a few week’s

later. Colin and I dated for a

couple months and then got

engaged. I was able to cut my trip

short by nine months so I could

get married. In December 1971 I

spent six weeks with him and his

family in Sydney. We got married

in January 1972 in Auckland

and have been married now for

45 years.

What were you doing before

Zonta?

I was a medical laboratory

technologist professionally and

I worked in the laboratory at the

Christchurch Hospital. From

there I changed profession and

went into pharmaceutical and

did hospital oncology drug

sales. I did that for 20 years and

I retired about five or six

years ago and then I started

volunteering at the shop at the

hospital. I’m not very good at

doing nothing. I then got bowel

cancer so I took a year off while

I had surgery and chemotherapy

– which has fortunately got rid

of it all. Currently I have a job

two days a week at the hospital,

which is a paid job, as the

co-ordinator of the wayfinder

volunteers who are out the front

of the hospital.

How did you get involved

with Zonta?

I got involved about 26

years ago. I was new to

Christchurch and I always wanted

to work in the community

having been involved all my life.

Fire rages, homes at risk

of women and girls in the community

I heard the group was a service

club and worked particularly to

promote the status of women and

girls and that’s what I’m enthusiastic

about. It’s also a way to

meet other professional businesswomen

so I joined Zonta. I’ve

been with it ever since because I

love it and I get a good satisfaction

out of what we can achieve

for other people.

How did you get involved with

the Zonta Sports Awards?

The sports awards had started

just before I joined. Vicki Buck

approached Zonta with the idea.

In those days, 26 years ago, girls

never got any recognition for

their achievement in sport. We

thought it was a good suggestion

and it fitted with our goal

of trying to promote the status

of girls. For five years it was

just the girls and the boys had a

separate awards night. And then

the organisation which ran the

boys awards fell through. School

Sport Canterbury then asked if

we’d consider combining the two

and we said ‘oh yes alright’ and

we’ve just continued. Although

girls do get a lot more publicity

than they used to – it’s still not as

much as the boys do. So I’m quite

passionate about getting them

recognised for their amazing

achievements. It blows your mind

what they’re achieving.

What sports have you played?

I was a New Zealand archery

champion and then I went on to

pistol shooting and they’re both

ones which never get any recognition

because they’re not very

public sports so that’s another

reason I think the Zonta Sports

Awards are good. I was in my

late 30s when I picked up archery

and did well quite quickly. In the

sports awards there is a category

for the disabled and I’m passionate

about that because once I had

stopped shooting, Neroli Fairhall,

top. She went to the able-bodied

Commonwealth Games with me

as her assistant, and won the gold

medal – which was terribly exciting.

She needed me to fetch and

carry the arrows and things. A

couple years after that, she asked

me to go with her to the World

Paraplegic Games in England

which was an amazing experience

and made me very passionate

about recognising disabled

people in their sports and how

massively they can achieve. The

other category which is a passion

for me in sport, other than sport

in general, is the coach, referee

or administrator. They only get

criticism when they get it wrong,

but they don’t get any praise for

when they get it right.

What do you like the most

about all your different roles?

Just seeing the difference you

can make. Like with the volunteering

at the hospital, you can

see the strain go off someone’s

face when you tell them where

to go for their appointment.

My satisfaction is knowing our

working is making a difference in

somebody’s life.

What do you like doing outside

of work?

An eye on the city

My relaxation is in craft. I

didn’t have time to continue

with it when I was doing

pharmaceutical because I was

travelling. I’ve always knitted, but

I’ve taken up spinning and I’m

renewing my interest in weaving.

I’m with the Christchurch Guild

of Weavers and Spinners, I’m

currently the treasurer, which

isn’t my forte but no one else

would do it so I’m doing that. I

get a lot of satisfaction mixing

with other women.

Do you have any children?

We don’t have any children

but we do have a dog and she’s

very treasured. The dog’s named

Briar and she’s an airedale terrier.

We’ve only ever had airedale’s,

we fell in love with out first one

and Briar is our fifth. Briar’s

nearly six-years-old. She’s a rehome

so we’ve only had her

for one year but she’s very much

part of our family now and very

loved.

What’s your best piece of

advice for women?

Probably just to believe in

themselves and their abilities

and to believe they can make a

difference in the world. Even if

its in a small way, they can get

that satisfaction, knowing what

they do has made a difference to

someone else’s life.

Riccarton High

student earns

prestigious

scholarship

• By Emily O’Connell

RICCARTON HIGH School

year 13 student Yan Gong has

won a $10,000 scholarship

towards his university studies.

The Canterbury University

scholarship is for first year international

students and is offered

to 25 students

worldwide.

It recognises

and supports top

achieving international

students.

Yan moved to

New Zealand from

China in 2015, and Yan Gong

started at Riccarton

High. The school’s careers

adviser Vanessa Kidd said the

scholarship is brilliant and only

one secondary school student

in New Zealand received it last

year.

She said Yan is a hard

working, resilient student who

takes every opportunity and

helps other students.

Ms Kidd said Yan was over

the moon to have won. He will

start a Bachelor of Commerce at

Canterbury University next year.

Billy’s great night out at the league

MEETING: Benji and Billy Spivey with Kiwis player Elijah

Taylor at the game on Saturday.

• By Bridget Rutherford

NOT EVEN a broken leg could

stop Halswell Hornets’ Billy

Spivey from going to cheer on the

Kiwis as they thumped Scotland

74-6 on Saturday.

Billy, 7, broke his femur about

three weeks ago after crashing

his motor-cycle and has to be in a

wheelchair until November 16.

His mother Nicola said

originally the Halswell family

had bought tickets to the pool

play match at AMI Stadium in

the general stand.

But they had to buy new tickets

in the wheelchair seating area

at the bottom of the City Care

Stand so Billy could still go, she

said.

Ms Spivey, Billy and his

three-year-old brother, Benji, sat

together. Dad Hamish and some

friends were also allowed to sit

with them.

Ms Spivey said it was

“awesome” to sit there because it

was close to the action.

Billy’s Halswell Hornets gold

team, which his dad coaches,

won junior team of the year at

the Canterbury rugby league

awards. He was the second

highest points scorer.

Ms Spivey is the junior club

captain.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Last week, Billy chatted to

Kiwis star Shaun Johnson after

the team’s open training session

at Linfield Park.

“It was cool. He said ‘I hope

your leg gets better’,” Billy said.

The Kiwis playmaker went

on to score a try and kick nine

conversions during Saturday’s

match to become the Kiwis

highest ever points scorer.

The win has set the Kiwis up

for a crunch match against Tonga

in Hamilton on Saturday after

they beat Pacific rivals Samoa 32-

18 on the weekend.

Ms Spivey said after the

game the family got to meet

Kiwis utility Elijah Taylor, who

recognised Billy from last week’s

training session.

Some of the Kiwis officials also

recognised him, and gave Billy

the thumbs up and a wave as the

team walked onto the field, she

said.

Billy said he wants to play for

the Kiwis when he grows up, and

the NRL premiership-winning

Melbourne Storm because he has

the same name as their fullback

Billy Slater.

Ms Spivey said while their

friends joked about their kids

being named after well-known

rugby league players, it was not

intentional.

Difficult words no problem for Lucy

St Margaret’s home to

country’s top speller

IT MEANS lacking in

courage and resolution, but

Lucy Jessep certainly wasn’t

as she correctly spelled

pusillanimous.

The St Margaret’s College

year 10 student is New

Zealand’s 2017 Spelling Bee

champion.

She triumphed over

hundreds of students from

more than 100 schools to win

the title.

Runner-up was year 9

student George Turner, of

Marlborough Boys’ College.

In a tightly-fought

competition, the pair battled

it out for first place over four

rounds after earlier defeating

19 other spellers at Te Papa in

Wellington. Lucy took the title

with pusillanimous.

The Burnside teen was

awarded a trophy and $5000

towards her studies.

An enthusiastic debater who

loves learning languages, Lucy

said she was just focused on

“not getting out in the first

round,” and because of that

didn’t consider winning.

Her win was still sinking in,

she said.

New Zealand Spelling Bee

founder Janet Lucas said the

nail-biting final was fitting for

a competition in which the

talent was stronger than

ever.

“Lucy did incredibly well to

triumph in such a strong field.

This was the toughest and

longest competition we have

ever had. We have seen some

truly amazing spelling today.”

“The New Zealand Spelling

Bee is fiercely competitive

in a fun way. It’s a sport

with an intellectual focus –

students train and prepare to

compete, and it’s clear from

the excellent results that they

trained hard.”

The finalists won their

places out of a field of

hundreds of year 9 and

10 students. The rigorous

competition began with

a written classroom test,

followed by six regional semifinals.

Ingredients

1 whole butterflied chicken

Directions

Preheat grill to medium. Get

surface temperature to about 200

deg C. Clean and oil well. Clean

the chicken if you desire and pat

dry.

Cut the backbone out of the

chicken with sharp kitchen

scissors. You could use a knife,

but the scissors are much safer

and work great.

With a large knife, give the

breastbone a large nick in the

front of the chicken to help the

bird lay flat.

Rinse the inside of the bird out,

trim any loose fat and extra skin.

Pat dry again. Give the bird a

good sprinkle of salt and pepper.

You could use any seasoning you

want here.

Place skin down on the grill.

Flip after you get a nice browning

on the skin after about 12-15min.

Give the chicken a good

brushing of barbecue sauce.

Grill another 3-4min until

the sauce is browning well.

Total grilling on the second side

should take 20-25min.

Let set for 5 minutes then cut

and serve.

1 Avocado

1 Lemon

1 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

Fire rages, homes at risk

Huge turnout for bike show

• By Sophie Cornish

THE SMASH Palace Bike Show

took New Brighton by storm on

Saturday.

“It went really well, everyone had

a ball,” said event organiser Jason

Mill.

Originally, 20 heats were planned

for the demonstration but Mr Mill

said on the day there was close to

60.

Tony Hockley, 82, son of former

bike enthusiast and founding member

of the Pioneer Motorcycle Club

Geoff Hockley, raced on the day.

The event was linked to the late

Mr Hockley, who was involved in

the first ever bike races on New

Brighton beach in the early 1900s.

Event organisers had one lap

planned for Tony, who ended up

lining up for the next six races

afterwards.

“We couldn’t get him off the

bike,” said Mr Mill.

Between 3000-4000 spectators

showed up and the seaside market

said they had one of their busiest

markets of the year, said Mr Mill.

Originally the event was planned

to be biennial, however, following

feedback from spectators, Mr Mill

thinks this may change.

“The word I kept hearing was

next year . . . if the community

wants it, we will do it.”

ENTHUSIASTS: Between 3000-4000 people turned out in New Brighton on Saturday for the

Smash Palace Bike Show.

New Dentures >

Creating a Better

Denture Experience

Relines >

Repairs >

Partial Dentures >

At Better Denture, the denture clinic

situated in Brynley Street, Hornby, the aim

is to take the hassle out of getting new teeth,

says experienced dental technician and

owner Chris Castle.

“We focus on making it easier for people

coming here to have dentures made or

maintained with our relaxed environment

and friendly approach.”

Chris understands that people can be a bit

nervous about coming into a dental clinic,

but he makes sure everyone feels welcome

and comfortable at Better Denture by

breaking down those barriers and putting

them at ease.

The process of having new dentures made

and fitted usually takes four appointments,

and Chris explains the process step by step

so patients understand what’s being done,

further complete after care is provided at no

additional cost.

“Every set of dentures is made to onsite

by hand, using higher grade materials as

standard, allowing us the ability to customise

every aspect of the process. We also aim to

cater toward the upkeep of existing dentures,

with same day repairs and relines on offer,

as well as being available on Saturdays,

allowing us to work around even the busiest

schedules,” he says.

“Our aim at Better Denture is to create

the best possible denture experience for

you, the customer, whether it be through

the products we custom create, the service

we provide or the manner in which strive to

achieve both of those goals.”

Anyone needing new dentures is invited

to contact Better Denture, phone 349 5050,

for a free consultation. The clinic is spacious

and welcoming, and patients are invited to

bring someone with them for support at any

appointment if they wish.

Located at 6 Brynley Street Hornby,

Better Denture is open Monday to Friday,

9am-5pm and Saturday, 10am-12pm.

Off-street parking and wheelchair access

available.

Co-Q10 reduces all

causes of mortality

by 50%

Researchers were amazed with the

results of how beneficial a natural nutrient

Coenzyme- Q10 (CoQ10) is to the human

body. Co-Q10 is a natural enzyme in

the body’s cells that is essential for cell

function, energy and survival. The Heart,

Liver, Kidneys and Pancreas require large

amounts of Co-Q10 to function well.

In a recent multi country double blind

trial on the possible benefits of CoQ10 to

protect against heart failure, 420 patients

with severe heart failure were given CoQ10

or a placebo and then followed for two

years. It was found to the amazement of

the researchers the patients who received

the Co-Q10 had a 50% reduction in an

adverse cardiovascular event or death

compared to the placebo patients. Not only

this but the patients on the CoQ10 had a

50% reduction in death not only from

cardiovascular events but from all causes.

According to lead study author Professor

Mortensen this study is the first in over a

decade to show a natural nutrient can

reduce heart failure mortality and CoQ10

should be added as a standard treatment

for anyone with cardiovascular complaints.

It is known that CoQ10 levels decrease in

the heart muscle of patients with heart

failure as severity worsens. Statin drugs

are used to treat many patients with

cardiovascular problems but these drugs

also reduce CoQ10 levels further in the

body. Symptoms of low CoQ10 in the body

can be low energy and endurance, muscle

pain, poor memory and concentration and

poor heart function or heart failure.

CoQ10 levels are known to decrease

as we age and many researchers believe

keeping our levels up of this vital nutrient

may help prevent many chronic diseases

including cancer.

Co-Q10 is available as a natural

supplement to support good health.

Are you

Magnesium

deficient?

Minerals are the building blocks of good

health. Some minerals are only needed in

trace amounts where others like magnesium

are need in much larger amounts and on

a regular basis to prevent deficiency and

maintain optimum health. A large number

of us do not obtain sufficient magnesium

from our diet and may notice some of the

common signs of deficiency. Some of the

more common symptoms that may be

caused by insufficient magnesium are: leg

and muscle cramps, twitches, muscle pain,

muscle fatigue and weakness, tremors

of hands, blurred vision, restlessness,

poor sleep, raised and/or unstable blood

pressure, poor circulation, irregular

heartbeat, shortness of breath, swallowing

problems, dizziness, headaches, anxiety,

agitation, irritability, seizures, poor

concentration and many more.

Although many young people now show

signs of magnesium deficiency symptoms

generally worsen as we age due to our

digestive system being less efficient. Taking

a magnesium supplement of sufficient

strength may be a sensible option to top

up our vital magnesium levels. Not all

magnesium supplements however are

well absorbed by everyone. Luckily a new

marine sourced magnesium has been

found that offers good levels of absorbable

magnesium as well as many trace nutrients

that are low in the diet but essential for

good health. Further information is

available in store from our natural health

advisers, and medical herbalists..
