Subject: Beans and peas increase fullness more than meat





When trying to eat healthy and lose weight you need to eat less. The problem with eating less is that you can be hungry real quick. Research shows how to battle this, and it is not with meat. Beans and peas help a person feel more full than meat. Perfect way to eat less.

Key Takeaways:

  • Numerous modern dietary recommendations encourage high protein consumption to help with weight loss or prevent the age-related loss of muscle mass.
  • The recent study demonstrated that protein-rich meals based on beans and peas increased satiety more in the study participants than protein-rich veal and pork based meal
  • Most interestingly, the study also demonstrated that a less protein-rich meal based on beans and peas was as satiating and tasty as the protein-rich veal and pork-based meals.

"Meals based on legumes such as beans and peas are more satiating than pork and veal-based meals according to a recent study by the University of Copenhagen's Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports."

Vitamin A is one nutrient that does not he the attention it deserves. Many people do not get as much as they need, so supplementing may be necessary. It is fat soluble, and it is one of the strongest antioxidants available to the human body. It helps protect many functions of the body.

Key Takeaways:

  • A few of us have even uttered it a few times when making an attempt to persuade relations - or ourselves - to decide on wholesome meals.
  • In any case, consuming a balanced weight loss plan of fruits, greens and protein-filled meals fuels our physique with the nutritional vitamins and minerals it must perform correctly.
  • We will not all the time get every little thing we'd like from our food plan. For a few of us, dietary supplements can supply the precise vitamins our our bodies are poor in.

Subject: Can diet pills help you lose weight?





There is a small minority of people that find diet pills helpful along with a diet and exercise program. When it comes to diet pill options, some of the limited prescription options include two drugs that are FDA approved for longer term use for weight loss in general. Some of the over counter remedies include Ephedrine, Chitosan, as well as a few others. However when it comes down due it while drugs offer an answer to part of the weight loss problem, exercise is also a crucial part of weight loss.

Key Takeaways:

  • Everyone knows that a combination of diet and exercise is the best way to lose weight. But many of us have tried this, over and over again, without lasting success.
  • The Food and Drug Administration treats obesity drugs differently than it does other drugs.
  • People report they feel full and more energetic. Because it can increase blood pressure, it must not be used in people with hypertension, and blood pressure must be regularly monitored while using the medication.

For all the men out there that don't think its possible to increase their sperm count and fertility, this study will prove you wrong. According to recent research, moderate exercise can very much help out in the struggle to maintain fertility even for men who might be increasing a bit in age.

Key Takeaways:

  • As reported by Medical News Today, an estimated one in three couples encounters conception difficulties because of poor semen quality.
  • A new study, published in the journal Reproduction, has found that moderate yet continuous and regular exercise may be the key to solving fertility problems in men.
  • After only a single week, sperm count, shape and concentration went back to the pre-training levels; sperm motility dropped back after 30 days.

"Sperm samples were evaluated before, during and after the exercise period, and were compared with the results from the control group, who did not exercise. While all exercising men showed improvements in their semen quality – probably because of weight loss – moderate but continuous training, which included running on a treadmill for 25 to 30 minutes three to four days per week, showed the best results regarding semen quality."

The superfood status of sweet potatoes continues to grow. In addition to having fewer calories than a regular potato and containing vitamin A, vitamin B, and antioxidants, researchers are saying that the water they are boiled in could be super healthy as well. A study found that the proteins extracted from sweet potatoes when they are boiled can help with weight loss and lipids. This has lead t further research on how best to get the proteins out of the used water and insert them into an more easily digested medium.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sweet potato is known to be a bit of a super food because it has fewer calories than a regular potato.
  • They are also a fabulous source of Vitamin A for healthy eyes, Vitamin B for energy and immunity and contain antioxidants that carry anti-aging properties.
  • In order to get the most nutrition out of the vegetable, we should perhaps be thinking outside the box in our consumption methods.

"“Finding alternative uses for the sweet potato proteins in wastewater could be good for the environment and industry, and also potentially for health.”"

Subject: Study links diet soda to weight gain





The National Institute on Aging has found that diet sodas do not aid in weight loss. It isn't known why this happens however the institute offers the idea that diet soda worsens glucose intolerance. This allows the body to take in more sugar and can cause a person to gain more weight. The institute wants to emphasize what the no calorie drink does to the body rather than just have people focus on the calorie count.

Key Takeaways:

  • Forget diet soda. If you’re going to drink a soda, then you should drink a regular one.
  • contrary to what many people think, diet sodas are not conducive to weight loss. In fact, they make it more likely for a person to gain weight than if they were to drink ordinary soda.
  • chronic low-calorie sweeteners consumption was associated with increasing obesity, most noticeably abdominal obesity.

"It’s best just to stay away from soda altogether, but if you must indulge, stick with the ‘real’ stuff."

With the emergence of Celiac disease in recent years, there are many who have cut gluten from their diet even though they do not suffer from the condition. It has been viewed as a fad new diet, but specialists argue that it can negatively impact your diet. The concern is that the lack of fortified breads, pastas, and cereals in a diet will cause a deficiency in essential B vitamins, folate, and fiber that come from them. Doctors are advising those who do not have Celiac disease to not cut gluten from their diet.

Key Takeaways:

  • A new report by Harvard Medical School states that gluten-free dieting can easily result in a lack of proper nutrition, particularly for those without celiac disease.
  • The truth is that there are no published reports showing that a gluten-free diet produces weight loss in persons without celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
  • Researchers are concerned that consumers who are eager to drop gluten from their diets may be lacking the essential B Vitamins, folate and fiber that comes from consuming fortified breads, cereals and pastas.

If You Want To Detox, Look To The Liver
TopPreviousNext

Date: December 08, 2016 02:38 AM
Author: Darrell Miller
Subject: If You Want To Detox, Look To The Liver

The liver is the largest organ in the body and is responsible for processing toxins in it. This organ has been shown to have over five hundred vital functions including production of bile, metabolism of protein and carbohydrates, storing vitamins, and detoxification. This makes it very important to always detox it in order to keep it working at its best. Apart from getting rid of all the toxic substances that will have build up, here are some of the other benefits of liver cleansing.


Benefits of Liver Cleansing

Immune system support – Since the liver is responsible for the removal of toxins from the body, cleansing it makes your immune system stronger.

Supports whole body detox – As the liver removes toxic substances from the body, there are some little amounts of toxins that remains in it. With time there is buildup of too many toxins which will need you to detox it to make it work well again.

Increasing vitality - By cleansing the liver, you will have restored it to its peak working condition. This in turn will help breakdown fats thus make your skin look healthier and younger.

weight loss – Cleansing promotes bile production which is used to break down fats. It is therefore important to detox if you want to lose weight.


How efficient your liver works depends on the constant supply of antioxidant nutrients to it. One of the major antioxidants that you can use to detoxification the liver is Glutathione. This antioxidant enzyme protects the liver cells from radical damage and also protects them from environmental damage.

How protein-rich diets help lose weight

Subject: How protein-rich diets help lose weight





Many researchers have started focusing on the effect certain foods have on weight and metabolism. One such study involves determining how proteins help with weight loss. What they found is that phenylalanine is released when protein is broken down, which then causes the body to release hormones that tell our bodies that they are full. In contrast, low protein diets allow another hormone to be released in excess that tells us we are hungry. This research could someday lead to medications being developed that will help with the growing obesity epidemic.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lower estimated glomerular filtration rate, another indicator of poor kidney function, was linked with worse performance on tests of global cognitive function and memory.
  • A better understanding of the mechanism by which protein diets cause weight loss could lead to the development of drugs and diets that tackle the growing obesity epidemic.
  • In contrast, high levels of the hormone GLP-1 tell us when we have had enough food and tell our bodies to stop eating.

"the precise mechanisms by which phenylalanine suppresses appetite and body weight still need to be determined, and there are likely to be additional mechanisms which are also involved in the beneficial effects of a high protein diet."

Subject: Orange peel is effective for treating asthma-Expert





The usefulness of oranges has been seriously underplayed. We usually eat the inside of the orange and discard the peel, but this tart covering may be even healthier than the pulp. A community health expert in Nigeria is urging residents to keep the peels from oranges. She says they are abundant in vitamins, minerals, pectins, and fibers that are great for our bodies. The amount of fiber is said to lower weight since it is also low in calories. It is also thought to help with bronchitis and asthma due to its histamine content.

Key Takeaways:

  • A community health expert, Mrs Karounwi Israel, on Thursday in Lagos, advised Nigerians not to discard orange peels, saying “they have many hidden health and household benefits”.
  • Most of us who take oranges, normally throw away the peels, we are unaware that these peels are loaded with highly nutritious compounds that are beneficial to our health.
  • According to her, it contains a high level of histamine; reducing compounds and antioxidants, which helps in relieving various respiratory complications as bronchitis, cold, flu and lung cancer.

"People dislike orange peel because of its bitter taste but this peel acts as an excellent weight loss aid, as it contains good amount of fibre and is low in calories."

One of the main health problems in the world today is that too many people do not get enough vitamins and minerals in their diet. One such important vitamin is vitamin A or retinol. It is recommended that women get 600-700 micrograms of vitamin A daily in order to help with eyesight, bone formation, and maintain the lining of the digestive tract. However, it is possible to overdose on vitamin A. This can cause dizziness, nausea, and hair loss. It’s important to properly balance your diet to get enough of this supplement.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin A is a supplement that aids eyesight and bone formation and other processes in the body.
  • women need 600-700 micrograms and 700 for men
  • if we don't get enough eyesight, GI issues, skin, and weight loss conditions can appear and if we get too much growth could be impaired and you will feel ill

"Vitamin A – also called Retinol – is an important dietary supplement. It aids eyesight and bone formation, is essential to maintain the lining of the digestive tract and also helps in keeping the eyes, skin and mucous membranes moist."

Subject: Is your relationship with food on the rocks?





Not everyone can manage to have a healthy relationship with food -- or, at least, that's the way it seems. Others seem like they're able to just eat whatever they want and stay alright, while others feel like they're addicted. Still, others bounce from diet to diet. Which are you? "Is your relationship with food on the rocks?" helps determine if your relationship with food is healthy, and what you can do about it if it's not.

Key Takeaways:

  • What, when and why we eat is so wrapped up in social and emotional factors that it goes way beyond simply fueling the body. With millions of Americans on diets every day, it’s challenging to tease out the truly disordered tidbits from what is considered “normal” eating.
  • People with eating disorders often become obsessed with pinning recipes, watching the Food Network and preparing elaborate meals and desserts that they themselves are unable to eat. This high level of preoccupation makes people feel like food is all they can think about.
  • The weight loss industry is a multi-billion dollar entity, and it is so seductive! Miracle meal plans, magic shakes, fat-incinerating supplements, you get the idea. Catchy claims draw people in, then drop them. Hard. Rapid weight loss can happen, but it doesn’t last.

Are you trying to lose weight? It seems like there is a ton of tips out there and a lot of it is going the route of contradicting each other. No matter where you look, there's something that's supposed to help you lose weight compared to something else (nevermind what helps weight gain!). "How does a high-protein diet aid weight loss? Study sheds light" gives proof that a high-protein diet is actually better than all those other tips...

Key Takeaways:

  • In a new pilot study, researchers from Imperial College London in the United Kingdom reveal how phenylalanine - an amino acid produced by the digestion of protein - boosts levels of a hormone that tells us when we are full, leading to reduced food intake.
  • The researchers found that mice and rats given phenylalanine showed increased levels of the hormone GLP-1, which suppresses appetite, but reduced levels of the hormone ghrelin, which increases hunger.
  • On applying phenylalanine to gut cells in a petri dish, the team found that the amino acid targets a receptor called the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR), and it is this receptor that increases GLP-1 levels and lowers levels of ghrelin.

"Lead author Mariana Norton will present the findings at this week's Society for Endocrinology annual meeting in the U.K."

Subject: Saturated fats and refined sugar linked to brain damage, encourage overeating





You probably already know about the three basic types of food, what they're used for, and how these sources of energy can affect your body. and you probably already know that certain things are bad for you -- like saturated fats and refined sugar. But do you know just how bad for you these two are? In "Saturated fats and refined sugar linked to brain damage, encourage overeating", this article assesses the dangers...

Key Takeaways:

  • For some people, losing weight is a no-brainer – eat less and move more, right? It turns out that if you've been eating a diet full of refined sugar and fat, you could actually be suffering from brain damage that stunts your ability to determine how much you should eat.
  • In a study that was published in Physiology & Behavior, trained rats were granted limited access to low-fat food and then tested on two types of problems – one that tested their memory abilities and learning dependent on the hippocampus, and one that did not.
  • Davidson believes that the damage caused by such a diet does become permanent, although he concedes that he can't say precisely when that occurs. Losing weight, therefore, does not mean that a person will get that lost brain function back.

"When it comes to weight loss, it's important to realize that saturated fats and refined sugar do more than just pack on the pounds."

Subject: Why Protein Curbs Your Hunger, and How it Can Help You Lose Weight





It has long been believed that protein-rich diets help us lose weight because it makes us feel fuller. New research is starting to show that the mechanism is more complex than that. Researchers believe that phenylalanine is the actual end-product that does the job. Phenylalanine is a product of the breakdown of protein-rich foods. It has been shown to trigger the release of hormones that stop feelings of hunger, such as leptin and GLP-1. While protein is what we need to eat to help us lose weight, it is actually the byproduct phenylalanine that does the work.

Key Takeaways:

  • New research provides insight into the muscle-building macro's ability to make you feel fuller longer and keep the pounds off.
  • Now, past research has proved protein-rich diets encourage weight loss by making people feel fuller.
  • simply adding more protein to your diet can aid in your efforts without a complete nutritional overhaul.

Watermelon is being tested as a new tool in the fight to lower blood pressure. There are already some really great ways to help reduce blood pressure. Quitting smoking and cutting down on alcohol and caffeine consumption can really help lower blood pressure, and exercise and maintaining a healthy weight can also help. In addition, cutting down on salt and lowering our sugar intake are some of the first things doctors prescribe to help fight high blood pressure. It seems watermelon may now be another tool to add to the arsenal.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you are over 40, or have a family history of high blood pressure, limit your salt intake to about 1,500 mg a day
  • Thousands of studies have identified sugar as the main culprit for high blood pressure
  • Because watermelon is mainly water, it fills you up without the added calories, leading to weight loss

Subject: Does eating fat make you fat? This physician says no





One big myth surrounding weight loss is that in order to lose weight, you must not eat any fat. However, that is not the case. Mark Hyman says that dietary fat, like those found in avocadoes, actually helps cut fat, and even goes to say that all calories are not the same. Healthy fats can also speed up metabolism and cut cravings. Hyman suggests consuming foods such as spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, and peppers along with up to six ounces of protein.

Key Takeaways:

  • "The misinformation that has been pushed on our population by the food industry and our government, which is that all calories are the same - that's true in a laboratory, when you burn them," Hyman said. "It's not true when you eat them."
  • In a blog post on his website last year, Hyman compared the effects of consuming 750 calories of soda vs. 750 calories of broccoli, pointing out the many adverse effects of the former, including an insulin spike, which increases the storage of belly fat. In our conversation, he noted, "Fat, on the other hand, does not raise insulin."
  • What healthy fats can do, Hyman wrote in his forthcoming book, "The Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook," is "shut down cravings, speed up metabolism" and "help prevent and reverse heart disease, not cause it."

Subject: Everybody Should Switch Back To Butter, It Is the healthier Choice

Years ago, there was a push to switch to vegetable oil.  Unfortunately, most everybody didn't realize that vegetable oil is not a healthy choice.  Vegetable oil is mostly made up of Omega-6, American diets have 30 to 100:1 omega-6 : omega-3 ratio.  Omega-6 is bad for the body when it is the dominant oil in our diets.  Omega-6 causes inflammation in the body.  Most Americans have chronic inflammation, consuming vegetable oil does not help matters at all.  Everybody should switch back to Butter. 


Butter is made from dairy products. It contains vitamins A,E and K2 which are fat-soluble. Contains a lot of saturated healthy fats which are short and medium chain fats which do not contribute to cardiovascular disease.
Butter can lower risk of heart attack due to high vitamin K2.  Contain CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) that improves body composition, aids in weight loss.

Have you had your butter today?

Bulletproof coffee - coconut and butter does improve health

Subject: Bulletproof coffee - coconut and butter does improve health

A cup of coffee is a common thing that most of people drink in the morning. However, since many people realized that coconut oil and butter are healthy fats (Axe, 2016), they started replacing cream with them. This coconut and/or butter coffee is known as bulletproof coffee and it is a new trend of healthy morning drink. It has been extremely popular all over the world.

Coconut oil has so many benefits for your body, such as:

· Increases your energy - its ingredient, MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides), is absorbed by the body and metabolized as fuel more quickly (Tifanny, 2016).

· Improves your immune system - There is a lot of lauric acid in coconut oil that is effective to prevent and cure many viruses (WebMD in Tifanny, 2016).

· Improves brain function – Its fatty acid plays an important role in memory and brain functions (Axe, 2016).

· Promotes heart health – Coconut oil contains good cholesterol that is good for your heart (Axe, 2016).

· Acts as anti-inflammatory – Antioxidant content makes coconut an effective anti-inflammatory food that help reduce arthritis (Axe, 2016).

· Is good for hair and skin – It is able to smoothen and tighten the skin, as well as maintain healthy hair (Axe, 2016).

On the other hand, butter also offers many advantages for your health, such as:

· Prevents and treats many diseases - Omega 3 fatty acids in butter are essential for growth, as well as prevention and treatment of arthritis, coronary artery disease, cancer, inflammation, and high blood pressure (Leonard, 2016).

· Improves your brain, blood circulation, and hormonal system – It helps prevent neurodegenerative and heart diseases, increase energy expenditure, and act as anti-inflammatory (NN, 2014).

· Is good for bones and blood circulation – Butter contains vitamin K that plays an important role in blood clotting and keeping the bones strong (Leonard, 2016).

· Helps with weight loss – It makes you feel full for a longer period and its conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is an effective aid for losing weight (Leonard, 2016).

· Reduces caffeine sensitivity – Butter fat can protect the stomach from shakes and nausea caused by caffeine (Leonard, 2016).

· Boosts the energy – It provides more sustained energy for the body (Leonard, 2016).

· Accelerates metabolism and digestion – Vitamin A, D, and E contained in butter are easily absorbed by the body and stored in gastrointestinal tract (Axe, 2016).

Based on the facts above, coconut and butter coffee is a healthy drink. However, excessive consumption of this bulletproof coffee is not good. Healthy fats can only function effectively in the body if the amounts taken are mooderate, not more and not less. Moreover, drink this coffee as the replacement of your breakfast is not recommended since it does not have enough essential nutrients (Gunnars, 2016).

What is chitosan and how effective is it for weight loss?
TopPreviousNext

Author: Darrell Miller
Subject: What is chitosan and how effective is it for weight loss?

Chitosan is a compound extracted from the hard shells of shrimps and other crustaceans.  While it has many uses, it also claims that it aids in the elimination of excess fat in our bodies which makes it a perfect candidate for inclusion in any weight loss program.  It can be ingested in the form of capsules, powder and pills.


How does it work?

Chitosan works by preventing the absorption and storage of fat before it is metabolized in the stomach.  Basically, it is a fiber that absorbs fats when they enter the body.  Therefore, the fat is broken down and does not get absorbed into the blood stream.  Instead, fat and chitosan go through your small intestine or the ileum where they bind with bile acids. They then form an insoluble gel that passes through the large intestine and is excreted out of your body. This means that instead of the fat being absorbed into the blood stream, it is excreted out of the body and no fat absorption means no weight gain.

There is still another way that chitosan helps in weight loss. Since chitosan is a fiber, it promotes cleansing which is important in the process of losing weight.

Another reason this compound seems to work for weight loss is that it makes the body not to crave for fattening foods.  It neither starves nor does it make you feel hungry; this is simply because you continue eating fat, the only thing is that the fat does not get absorbed into your blood stream.

Now, since less amounts of fat are entering the blood stream, the body is able to burn the existing fat present in your body. Therefore, your body burns the fat in the body and you constantly lose weight.

Chitosan products contain vitamin C which makes it swell up. This promotes appetite suppression which is very important for weight loss.

Subject: Does Garcinia Help With weight loss?

Garcinia cambogia, a tropical fruit obtained from a herb called Malabar tamarind, has for a long time been used as a weight loss supplement.  Garcinia cambogia is found to grow naturally in South East Asia and some parts of Indonesia.  Traditionally, this herb was used as food flavor by traditional communities in India.  The fact that this supplement is obtained naturally implies that it has minimal side effects when used for weight loss by an individual.

How does Garcinia cambogia works?

The critical component that gives Garcinia cambogia its weight loss property is called hydroxycitric acid or simply HCA.  Garcinia cambogia works through;

  • Suppressing appetite in an individual; this reduces the mentality of frequently craving for more food. Emotional eating could lead to eating more food consequently leading to weight gain in an individual. Garcinia cambogia aids in increasing the levels of serotonin hormone. High levels of serotonin result in moderate craving for food while low serotonin levels lead to high or emotional eating.
  • Boosting fat - burning process by increasing the rate of metabolism in an individual; High rates of metabolism lead to faster burning of stored fats that result in shedding more pounds.
  • Blocking of fat formation process; it does so by blocking an enzyme called citrate lyase that is used by in the formation of fats.  Excess carbohydrates are usually converted into fats and stored in the body for future use. Do you know that such fats are the ones that build up to add the overall weight of an individual? Garcinia cambogia, therefore, inhibits this process.

weight loss

What determines the success of Garcinia cambogia in any weight loss program is the concentration of HCA.  The recommended HCA concentration that you should buy is 60%.  Moreover, it is also imperative to consider shopping for the Garcinia cambogia products that are certified and approved by the Food and Drug Administration.  This is to ensure that what you are shopping is safe and suitable for all your individual weight loss needs.

Can Chitosan Really Absorb Fat?

Subject: Can Chitosan Really Absorb Fat?

What is a chitosan

crustaceansChitosan is a naturally produced supplement that is recommended by nutrition experts and doctors as a great remedy for weight loss and high cholesterol, which results in a lower risk to develop bothersome cardiovascular problems and facilitates a better looking physique. Chitosan is made from the outer shell of crustaceans, such as shrimp or lobster. The outer shell is processed and a special form of "sugar", also known as a polysaccharide, is obtained. Unlike other types of artificially created sugars, Chitosan possesses unique properties that make it a great addition to a healthy diet for individuals who want to manage their weight and prevent obesity.

How Does Chitosan Work to Facilitate weight loss?

Several research studies conducted by nutrition experts and medical professionals specializing in the treatment of obesity reveal the surprising properties of Chitosan in terms of its ability to influence the absorption of fat in the stomach and intestines. Once ingested, Chitosan works in the digestive system by binding excessive fat and making it more difficult to achieve fat absorption. In other words, it limits fat absorption by blocking free fat available for absorption and eliminating it as waste from the human body. Naturally, if fat absorption is limited in this manner, the caloric intake is dramatically diminished, which obviously results in weight loss and a better looking physique.

Chitosan has the Capacity to Bind and Remove Cholesterol

Fat retention and removal achieved by Chitosan after meals is a great feature of this natural supplement that inevitably results in a healthy and progressive weight loss. However, the benefits of Chitosan are also reflected in its positive influence on the cardiovascular health. The fat ingested through meals contains harmful cholesterol, which can accumulate in the blood vessels causing blockages of the blood flow and a higher risk for dangerous cardiovascular problems like strokes or heart attacks. Chitosan traps the excessive cholesterol delivered in the digestive system through daily meals, which results in less cholesterol being circulated in the bloodstream, and an improved blood flow to the brain and heart.

Even though there still hasn't been much research done regarding this supplement, we can still see that there are many uses for it. However, there is sufficient evidence out that shows 5-HTP is effective in treating depression and fibromyalgia, which means improved mood, reduced pain, better joint health, and better quality of sleep. To elaborate on the sleep benefits, 5-HTP increases serotonin levels which are converted into melatonin (a hormone which helps keep sleep cycles under control) through the body. There is also some evidence to suggest that this supplement can reduce anxiety as well as help promote weight loss in obese people.

So there is some great evidence to suggest that this supplement can help to improve our mood, quality of sleep, health and much more. However there is a slight downside, because of the limited amount of research done on this compound it is currently considered possibly unsafe to use. Potential side effects of 5-HTP include muscle ache/pain, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, stomach pain, and also a serious condition known as eosinophilia myalgia syndrome – a rare flu-like condition. Drug interactions can take place also; you should stay away from 5-HTP especially if you are taking any anti-depressant medication as these often increase serotonin levels which may result in too much serotonin in the body.

In conclusion

This supplement has many benefits and there has been research done to prove that it is effective in treating many problems such as insomnia, depression, fibromyalgia, anxiety, weight loss and more. However, it is recommended that you stay away from supplementing with 5-HTP because of the limited research done.

Subject: How Fiber Can Help Reduce Cholesterol

What is fiber?

fiber foodsMany medical researches have proven that fiber plays an important role within the body. Fiber is an element found in plants (such as fruits, whole grains and vegetables) that our bodies have no ability to digest. Without adequate fiber in the diet, people may have irregularity, sluggishness and constipation.

Benefits of fiber

Because fiber helps in moving stool through the digestive tract as well as colon, it helps in preventing colon cancer. It will always keep your colon healthy and clean. This makes it an important element in the body. Other benefits of fiber involve reducing incidences of heart disease, blood pressure, lowering inflammation and glucose levels, lowering cholesterol, and weight loss. Fiber also has the ability to reduce weight loss since it creates fullness within the intestines, which helps people by enabling to eat less. In addition, you need to make sure that you have sufficient amount of fiber within the body due to its numerous benefits.

How fiber works to lower cholesterol?

Research has proved that soluble fiber is effective in lowering the amount of cholesterol in the body. One way in which soluble fiber lowers blood cholesterol is by reducing the bile amount reabsorbed within the intestines. How does it works? When fiber often interferes with the absorption of bile within the intestines, more bile is always excreted in feces. To obtain cholesterol needed to make more bile salts, liver often increases the production of more LDL receptors.

These receptors are always responsible for pulling more cholesterol out of the LDL molecules within the bloodstream. The bile salts made from your liver has the ability to pull more LDL cholesterol from the blood. In addition, you need to learn the difference between the soluble fiber and dangerous cholesterol; since this will always help you to enhance your health. Research has proved that soluble fiber of about 5g to 10 g that reduce LDL cholesterol by about 5 percent.

Green tea benefits

green tea leavesGreen tea is made from the leaves of Camellia Sinensis, which is recognized for its health benefits. The nonfermented product is obtained by leaf desiccation that contains potent, polyphenolic antioxidants, with a flavanolic structure referred to as green- tea catechins, including epigallocat-echin-gallate (EGCG). Studies have shown that drinking EGCG prevents carcinogenesis in rodent organs. Studies have shown it had a significant chemoprotective effect against DMBA-induced mammary tumorigenesis in rats. Human breast cancer cell proliferation inhibition by green tea appeared mediated in part by (CKI). Mutagenesis was inhibited at concentration levels equivalent to human daily consumption.

Using human umbilical vein endothelial cells, it was demonstrated that green tea extracts reduced expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors forms-like tyrosine kinase and fetal liver kinase. Kinase insert domain containing receptor. Because of the antiangiogenic property of its extracts, they have therapeutic potential in preventing the development of new microvascular networks (angiogenesis) needed for tumor growth. It was also found that green- tea polyphenols inhibited angiogenesis by reducing vascularization of chicken chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) by an angiogenin-like protein isolated from goat serum.

EGCG effectively inhibited bladder-tumor implantation growth in rats, pointing to its potential as an intravesical chemotherapeutic agent. Inhibition of platelet function is a factor in reducing the risk of coronary artery disease. EGCG was reported to inhibit platelet aggregation, by possibly involving inhibition of cytoplasmic calcium increase. EGCG was proven to be the most effective in reducing thrombin-induced aggregation of washed human platelets. The ability of green- tea catechins to inhibit adenovirus infection and adenain, the human adenovirus 2 endopeptidase, was reported. EGCG proved the most potent inhibitor of four green-tea catechins tested. The viral protease adenain appeared to be the target of EGCG, so it is possible that all adenoviruses are sensitive to its action.

The Chinese have known about medicinal qualities of green tea since ancient times, treating everything from headaches to depression.

The three "Es"

  1. enjoyment (soothing)
  2. energy (caffeine)
  3. essential health benefits (antioxidants)

Provides support for a healthy weight loss program, gives the energy needed to maintain an active lifestyle, health, and longevity. The appetite suppressor, Vanadium, reduces calorie intake. Thermogenesis, or fat metabolism, is increased, because of the EGCG/caffeine combination, therefore burning fat.

EGCG fights free radicals. Fatty acids and lipids in the brain are susceptible to the effects of free radical perodixation. Much of the aging of the brain is attributed to perodixation. The EGCG helps to keep us young, alert, and able. Researchers have found that EGCG has inhibited tumor growth in both skin and gastrointestinal tracts. EGCG may fermented be able to obliterate cancer cells, without harming neighboring tissues.

guggul extractGuggul extract on weight loss

It is good to maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you do not do so, falling prey to a number of health complications is inevitable. Among the causes of these complications, fats metabolism happens to play a big part. There are numerous ways to help deal with problems associated with fat metabolism; guggle extract is one of them. A plant found in Asia and North African parts is widely used in weight loss programs. Its bark contains some sap that is extracted to offer the desired product. Many people are asking questions on how this extract helps improve both bile and fat metabolism.

How effective guggul extract

The sap obtained is also referred to us gum guggle or rather guggglesterones. These plant steroids are responsible for the positive effects the herb on the body fat metabolism. How does it help reduce cholesterol? It simply prompts an increase in the functioning of the thyroid. Biologically, this helps enhance metabolism. It occurs because food digestion is improved while at the same time the conversion of carbohydrates to fats is inhibited thus reducing cholesterol levels in blood. Perhaps that is why it is used in most weight loss programs.

Other health benefits of guggle extract

Furthermore, guggle extract improves bile functioning due to its cholesterol reduction characteristics. It kills two birds with one stone. As seen earlier, it inhibits formation of cholesterol on blood. Second, it helps in the excretion cholesterol from the body system. It is able to do this effectively due to the presence of phytochemicals. They inhibit farnesoid X receptor, which happens to be the bile acid receptor responsible for cholesterol levels in the body. It even blocks oxidation of low-density lipo-proteins thus enabling the breakdown of cholesterol into manageable compounds.

Finally, there is no doubt on if guggle extracts helps improve bile and fat metabolism. There may be a few people who question its effectiveness, but numerous studies have cemented the truthfulness of the idea. This herb also has other uses thus check out for our next article to understand more about it.
