Subject: Broccoli is a powerful anti-aging food that you should be eatingevery day





Broccoli is loaded with anti-aging ingredients such as antioxidants and collagen. Broccoli is known for its nutrition as it is packed with vitamins A and C as well as calcium and iron. The body uses vitamin C to produce collagen, which affects the outward appearance of people. The plant's antioxidants can work as an anti-inflammatory for the body, and they also get rid of free radicals which helps lessen the risks of oxidation in your cells and tissues.

Key Takeaways:

  • Broccoli is a superfood that contains antioxidant and collagen to prevent aging.
  • Collagen maintains your hair, skin, and nails and requires a lot of Vitamin C, which is one of the main nutrients in broccoli.
  • For the maximum amount of Vitamin C, you should eat raw broccoli, or steam cook it if you want it hot.

"A member of the cruciferous vegetable family, broccoli is completely edible from the crowded clusters of dark green florets at its top to the very tip of its stem. It provides a lot of nutrition, being filled with vitamin A and vitamin C, and containing large amounts of calcium and iron."

Subject: Comparing the effects of turmeric and turmeric-containing herbal tablets on skin barrier function





A team from the University California, Davis recently completed a study to see what impact turmeric-containing herbal supplements have on sebum production or transepidermal water loss, and to compare this with the effects of pure turmeric supplements. The 28 volunteers who completed the full test took the turmeric-containing herbal supplement, a supplement with only turmeric, or a placebo for four weeks. While none of the treatments impacted sebum production of the skin, the turmeric-containing supplement did reduce transepidermal water loss, which suggests that it improves the skin’s barrier function.

Key Takeaways:

  • 30 individuals were used in this study and they were given either a placebo, a turmeric supplement, or a herbal supplement that contained turmeric.
  • At the beginning and the end of the study which required the participants to take supplements twice a day, the researchers evaluated facial sebum and transepidermal water loss.
  • It was found that intervention supplements did not result in any side effects but herbal supplements containing turmeric had no effect on facial sebum.

"A study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food reported that turmeric-containing herbal supplements can be used to improve skin barrier function."

Subject: A species of hawthorn has been found to control abnormally highblood sugar levels





A team of researchers from the Middle East have found that a species of hawthorn, Crete hawthorn, has the ability to lower elevated levels of glucose in the blood. They have published their findings in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Along with its effects on blood glucose, called its anti-hyperglycemic property, it also has hyperlipidemic properties, that is, the ability to protect the body against high levels of fat such as cholesterol in the blood. They carried out the study using mice that were induced with hyperglycemia through feeding them alloxan. The mice were then divided into two groups, one group receiving Crete hawthorn extracts and the other given a chemical for control. They also used another animal model to understand its hyperlipidemic properties and to investigate whether the plant had antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. The results of the findings were that Crete hawthorn had important antioxidant properties due to its containing phenols and flavonoids. They also found that it had antimicrobial properties because it acted against bacteria such as E. Coli and Staphylococcus aureus, among others.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers in the Middle East have discovered that a species of hawthorn, scientific name Crataegus azarolus, can be used to lower elevated levels of glucose in the body.
  • The researchers did not only concentrate on the plant’s anti-hyperglycemic properties, but also on its ability to protect the body against levels of fat that were high.
  • The researchers duing their study found that Crete hawthorn had very high antioxidant properties, especially the ethanol extract from the leaf.

"The mice were then divided into groups, with some receiving an ethanol extract from Crete hawthorn leaves while others were given glibenclamide for positive control."

Subject: Research links folate deficiency to a wide range of diseases





Folate is commonly known as vitamin B9 and is found in many fruits and vegetables. Being deficient in folate has been linked to many health complications. Folate deficiency has been found to be associated with incurable DNA problems, such as a lost chromosome. It is also associated with dementia, cancer, and even anemia. However, an abundance of folate in the body can prevent cancer and dementia risk. Foods containing folate include brussels sprouts, tomato juice, peas, bananas, and poultry, so it is important to eat healthy to reduce risk of deficiency.

Key Takeaways:

  • Research has shown that folate, which is vitamin B9 and also known sometimes as folic acid, can be found in green leafy vegetables and many fruits.
  • Some of the diseases that are linked to folate deficiency are age-related dementia, cancer, anemia and mental illness. It is also linked to birth defects in women.
  • Researchers have taken a look at the relationship between folate and fragile X syndrome in order to understand how it is linked to other diseases.

"This is the first study that shows folate deficiency can cause problems with DNA replication and cell division."

Subject: Saffron extract found to promote wound healing





According to a study in Planta Medica, saffron is effective in overall skin repair and regeneration. Because saffron blooms for only one week out of the year, it's an expensive spice that is associated with many health benefits. It has also been shown to accelerate wound closure in some mice studies. Saffron has potent anti-inflammatory and anti-scarring properties. Other natural remedies that support wound healing include aloe vera gel, calendula, golden rod, gotu kola, and yarrow.

Key Takeaways:

  • Saffron is expensive because it blooms only once a year, makes only three stigmas, and is delicately harvested by hand mid-morning.
  • Saffron, containing crocin, picrocrocin, and safronal, helps with wound closure and the treatment of various diseases.
  • Saffron is said to promote learning, memory, increase vitality, protect against colds, and promote hair growth and possibly fight off cancer.

"A study published in the Planta Medica suggests that saffron can be used to promote skin repair and regeneration and to speed up the wound healing process."

Subject: Eat more artichokes! Their leaves contain powerful compounds thatprotect you from diabetes





Diabetes has the harmful potential of damaging the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. Fortunately, research is now showing that the consumption of artichoke leaves can protect your organs from this oncoming threat. This was concluded after a study was performed on rats, giving them a certain amount of alloxan each day which mimicked the effects of artichoke leaves. Once tissue was extracted from their organs, it showed that it was much less damaged than those who were not exposed to the alloxan.

Key Takeaways:

  • The study on artichokes was published in the Journal BMC complementary and alternative medicine. It used alloxan-induced rat models to study the anti-diabetes properties of the plant.
  • Rats were inoculated with alloxan which mimics the effects of diabetes and then were treated with ethanol extracts containing artichokes for about one month.
  • The artichoke extract reduced the level of glucose in the bloodstream by slowing down the conversion of starch into glucose through inhibiting alpha-amylase activity.

"People who are at risk of diabetes and other metabolic disorders would do well to add artichokes (Cynara scolymus) in their diet to lower their chances of getting the disease, according to researchers from the University of Sfax in Tunisia."

Subject: Study shows lutein can boost heart health





Many people consume lutein, either as a supplement in in vegetables containing lutein, because it can provide protection from diseases of the eye. A recent study has shown that lutein can protect the heart as well. Researchers found some correlation between higher levels of lutein in the bloodstream and a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, and metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a medical term for a group of conditions including abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, and high triglycerides. Lutein, a carotenoid, is found in dark, leafy green vegetables.

Key Takeaways:

  • Carrot and kale contain the carotenoid lutein that is useful for good eye health. But it has been shown that this compound is also good for the heart.
  • Lutein, a carotenoid, can both help protect the eyes and improve eye health, while reducing the risk of developing both cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
  • To carry out their study, the scientists first concentrated on current research on lutein. They gathered 4,377 studies that were narrowed down to 71 most relevant studies.

"Dr. Elizabeth Leermakers decided to look into “lutein’s positive effects against inflammation and oxidative stresses in the eyes,” and together with a team of researchers, she searched for links between the presence of lutein (or a lack of the carotenoid) and diseases caused by stressors like heart attack, metabolic syndrome, and stroke."

Subject: Could eating chili peppers actually help you live longer?





Do you enjoy your food spicy? Well, there is good news. The University of Vermont recently published a study of people who are chili peppers versus those who did not. They discovered that the chili eaters tended to live longer lives. In fact, a surprising 12% was the absolute risk reduction. Chili peppers have long been regarded as containing health benefits. They have been used to treat toothaches or other forms of pain. They are also loaded with antioxidants and vitamins A and C.

Key Takeaways:

  • In a study conducted by the University of Vermont involving 16,000 people over 23 years, people who said they eat hot chilli pepper were found to live longer.
  • Although the actual mechanisms by which hot chilli peppers can make one live longer are still unknown, the results obtained are very encouraging.
  • This study confirms previous studies that show that there is an inverse relationship between eating spicy foods and mortality.

"It may not always feel like you’re going to live longer after you’ve consumed a very spicy meal, but it seems that those hot peppers are doing quite a bit of good."

Subject: Compounds in pomegranate juice found to trigger cancer cell death





Cancer can be slowed down or perhaps even prevented with a proper diet containing anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. Now research has shown that pomegranate juice is a strong anti-cancer agent. It contains strong chemical compounds that heal, like ellagic acid and luteolin which combine to prevent the growth of cancer cells, in particular in regards to prostate cancer. Pomegranate juice is beneficial in other ways too because it is rich in vitamins, antioxidants, helps aid digestion, supports and promotes heart health.

Key Takeaways:

  • It has been found that cancer can be prevented or slowed when supplementing the diet with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents. One such agent is pomegranate.
  • One of the most common cancer types that affect one in nine men is prostate cancer. It is one of the leading causes of death in men.
  • It was discovered by researchers that exposing cancer cells to pomegranate induces cancer cell death or apoptosis, programmed cancer cell death.

"According to research, pomegranate juice and pomegranate extract contain powerful healing chemical compounds such as luteolin and ellagic acid that effectively work together to help prevent cancer cell growth, particularly prostate cancer cells."

Subject: Why prebiotics are absolutely essential to gut health





We are always told about how important probiotics are for our gastrointestinal health, but what about prebiotics? Prebiotics are shown to improve digestion because they can naturally restore the presence of probiotics that fight off any harmful bacteria. Harmful gut bacteria can lead to issues such as bloating, gas, and acid reflux. It can also lead to issues such as brain fog and having poor levels of vitamins in your system that lead to related deficiencies.

Key Takeaways:

  • People often mistake probiotics and prebiotics to be the same thing, but even though they are closely related, they are also very different from each other.
  • By eating prebiotic foods, probiotic populations can be restored, and as a result, the different symptoms of these health problems like gas and bloating are alleviated.
  • Probiotics are crucial to maintaining overall health since nearly 70 percent of the immune system is found in the gut.

"People also have to complement their diet with foods containing the lesser known prebiotics for probiotics to work their magic."

Prevent allergies before birth: Taking fish oil while pregnant found to reduce allergies in children

There are a variety of different ways in which you can reduce the chances of your child having allergies. If you simply take fish oil while you are pregnant, your child will have a lower chance than others of developing allergies. Some people are skeptical of this and honestly, not many people can blame them. However, there have been a lot of clinical studies done and it is being proven that it is in fact very true.

Key Takeaways:

  • A study on the relationship between taking of fish oil by mothers during pregnancy and allergy in children shows that allergy risk is reduced when mothers do this.
  • Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fat which regulates brain function and also regulates immune responses.
  • Although the study showed a positive relation between fish oil in pregnancy and reduced allergy in children, it did not state the ideal doses for mothers.

"They followed up on children who were born to mothers who took fish oil supplements containing DHA and those who did not for six years. The researchers found that at the age of one, children of mothers who had consumed a large amount of fish oil in pregnancy had less allergy to egg."

Amino acid arginine found to be crucial to mental health; low levels contribute to oxidative stress and inflammation

Mental health problems aren't always easy to treat but now that researchers have found an amino acid called arginine may help. This amino acid reduces oxidative tress and inflammation which lowers the risk of developing mental illness such as anxiety and depression. Improving your diet and supplementing with a supplement containing amino acid arginine could be the key to finally beating these conditions and the decreased quality of life they often bring to the patients suffering.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some people struggle with their own mind and they do not know how to cope with it.
  • There are some things that can help someone be okay with themselves and they are more healthy this way.
  • So many things, like arginine, actually have a massive role to play in the battle for people with mind issues.

"Still, the authors argue that more research should be conducted to truly determine the role of amino acids (particularly those that reduce inflammation) in mental health."

Nuts may be tiny but they are powerhouses when it comes to improving your health

In the past, nuts have received a bad reputation due to being so high in sodium and fat. Fortunately, new research is pointing to them actually being healthy due to their fat content containing mainly healthy fats that are not saturated. Maintaining a healthy consumption level of nuts can also allow you to lower your bad cholesterol while heightening your good cholesterol. These benefits can be achieved by taking in 100 grams of nuts each day.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nuts are considered to be a healthy source of fats due to them having fat forms that are non-saturated.
  • Nuts have been shown to lower bad cholesterol while also heightening good cholesterol levels.
  • People should intake about 100 grams of nuts per serving in order to experience optimal benefits.

"Once deemed unhealthy due to being high in fat, nuts are now viewed as anything but. It’s these fats, along with many other essential nutrients, that have made nuts a staple in the diets of many health-conscious individuals."

Were we wrong about fiber?

In Uganda they primarily eat a plant-based diet. By adhering to this diet, it took 26 years before experts could find a case of a patient with coronary heart disease. Many researchers say that this is due to their diet containing so much fiber. However, it is important to note that fiber cannot come from extracts and supplements and provide us with the same beneficial results. In order to get the full impact, it needs to come from your diet.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cardiovascular disease was so rare in East Africa that long-time practicing physicians went 25 years without treating a person with heart disease.
  • After 26 years one case of heart disease emerged, a judge, who had adapted western eating style.
  • The Africans were experiencing long lives and good survival rates because a number one killer was almost entirely absent

"Heart patients who increase their intake of fiber after their first heart attack reduce their risk of a second and live longer than those who don’t."

Asparagus: The Cancer-Fighting, Fibrous Superfood

Asparagus does more than just help promote digestive health. It also is known for containing something called rutin, which is a flavonoid that has the ability to help reduce the risk of blood clots. Studies with rats have also shown that consumption of asparagus over a ten week time span can result in more regulated blood pressure in those who are suffering from hypertensive symptoms. Asparagus also contains glutathione, which is known for boosting the human immune system.

Key Takeaways:

  • Fiber is known for helping cardiovascular health in humans, so the fiber content in asparagus can contribute to heart health.
  • Asparagus is high in folate levels which is essential in helping fetuses thrive while in-utero.
  • Asparagus is also high in potassium levels which can help regulate blood pressure.

"Asparagus is a low-calorie vegetable rich in antioxidants, minerals and anti-inflammatory properties. Asparagus also contains rutin – a flavonoid that helps to treat haemorrhoids and prevent blood clots."

Fiber: Nature's Way of Making You Feel Your Best

Humans are supposed to consume at least 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day, but unfortunately, only five percent of us actually fall within the recommended ratio. It is irrational for us to think that we can acquire the appropriate amount of fiber in foods alone, due to most of our diets simply not containing high-fiber foods. You can follow steps such as only using whole grains, and making sure your veggies are green, but some people find the most success in adding a chewable fiber supplement to their diet.

Key Takeaways:

  • While fiber is beneficial because it supports a healthy digestive and immune system, only half of Americans get the daily fiber that they need.
  • Even if you eat healthy, it is still challenging to squeeze the recommended 25 to 30 grams of fiber into your diet every day.
  • Fiber Choice is a chewable supplement comprised of inulin, which is a natural form of fiber found in fruits and vegetables.

"The "fiber gap" exists for two reasons: people think fiber supplements are primarily for maintaining a regular digestive system, and traditional forms of fiber supplements on the market, such as powder or capsules, are inconvenient to take."

Ten years ago Richard Holt was sleeping on the top bunk at a hostel next to an open window. He rolled over and fell 24 feet onto concrete. Somehow he landed on his feet, but ended up shattering his legs. He was given Oxycontin during his recovery. The drug was great at first. Then the grogginess and a crushing feeling replaced the warm and fuzzies. Through a grueling withdrawal period, he quit Oxycontin. The pain from is crushed legs endured. Luckily through Brazilian jiu-jitsu training partners, he learned about a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp and cannabis called cannabidiol (CBD). Despite not containing THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis, adaptation of CBD oil has slow. However, it is starting gain notice and momentum. In 2016, CBD oil has been legal in the UK and it's showed promise in several studies. One thing for sure, it helps Richard Holt.

Key Takeaways:

  • The CBD oil does not contain THC and is therefore not psychoactive
  • CBD oil can be used to treat cancerous tumors that would normally be lethal
  • helped a man who shattered his leg and heel alleviate pain from injuries in a way that nothing else could.

Scientists call on feds to allow research on CBD for pets

Subject: Scientists call on feds to allow research on CBD for pets





Veterinarians, researchers and pet owners are looking to loosen federal regulations on the use of marijuana products to help treat sick animals. Medical issues in dogs, such as epilepsy, arthritis, anxiety, loss of appetite and inflammation could potentially by helped by marijuana-based drugs and extracts.

Some people are already using marijuana extracts on their animals, such as those containing CBD, which is an element of marijuana that is not psychoactive. However, such extracts continue to be listed as Schedule 1 drugs by the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration, even when they contain little or no THC. THC is the active component in marijuana that causes intoxication.

The Food and Drug Administration has warned that marijuana products for pets sold in animal hospitals or online pet stores are illegal, since such drugs are unapproved. The FDA has suggested it will pursue legal action against those in violation of the law.

However, the policy-making body of the American Veterinary Medical Association, in conjunction with two group councils, is considering making a recommendation to the DEA for marijuana to be declassified as a Schedule 1 drug in order to enable research for both animal and human medical purposes. Declassification could also help prevent pet owners from accidentally overmedicating their animals in the absence of proper guidance from a medical professional.

In September, Republican senator Orrin Hatch of Utah introduced a bill that would facilitate research on use of marijuana-based medications, concurring that the drug is over-regulated, although he continues to oppose recreational use of the drug,.

Some veterinarians note that without sufficient evidence, it remains unsafe to use marijuana products on animals, with concerns about potential toxicity.

Yet researchers are continuing to wait for clearance to proceed on various relevant studies, such as use of marijuana for dogs with osteoarthritis, pruritis and epilepsy. Some research on use of products with CBD has been stopped until federal approval is granted. Gaining approval has been difficult due to government requirements, which continue to be an obstacle to moving forward.

Key Takeaways:

  • people using drugs to reduce pain on their pets. Oils and powders banned.
  • D.C standing in the way of the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes.
  • FDA making marijuana a schedule 1 drug...hence illegal. You can be arrested for using it.

"The concern our membership has is worry about people extrapolating their own dosages, looking to medicate their pets outside the realm of the medical professional"

For starters, not all cholesterol is bad. Cholesterol is needed for body functions to occur. That being said there are many natural reasons cholesterol could be noted as dangerously high. Are you undergoing more stress than normal? Any recent surgery or infections? Any major dietary changes? All of these need to be considered before starting medication. An increase of fiber may do the trick as excess cholesterol is released in fecal matter. Anti-inflammatory foods such as food containing omega 3 and omega 6 also help as cholesterol rises when the body is inflamed. Finally, increase fruit and vegetable intake.

Subject: Virginia Legislature Passes Bill Allowing Use and Distribution of CBD and THC-A Oil





Current Virginia legislation under consideration would expand the use of cannabis oils containing CBD and THCA to more patients than just those with certain kinds of seizure disorders. The new bill would include patients who suffer from AIDS/ HIV, Krohn's and other disorders where treatment is deemed appropriate by a doctor. The bill would also allow two important aspects:it would allow pharmacies to manufacture products and also end the current policy of suspending drivers license for those in possession.

Key Takeaways:

  • Under current Virginia law, oil made from CBD or THCA (both compounds found in cannabis) is legal to possess and use for medical purposes, but only for those with intractable epilepsy.
  • The proposal also allows pharmacies to manufacture and distribute the medicines to qualified patients.
  • Virginia’s full legislature also recently passed a measure to end driver’s license suspensions for marijuana possession charges.

"The newly-approved measure would greatly expand the list of conditions that makes someone eligible to use these medicines to include HIV/AIDS, cancer, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis and several others."

Subject: Medical News Today: Is rice gluten-free? Grains explained





Plain rice is gluten free naturally and is a good source of some nutrients and carbohydrates. People that are on a gluten free diet should always check labeling to make sure that gluten hasn't been added to a rice mixture. Rice does contain arsenic but it is mostly non toxic. People on gluten free diets have plenty of grains to choose from although many of these can only be found in health food stores. Persons with celiac disease must be careful to not eat gluten in any form.

Key Takeaways:

  • Rice, itself, is gluten free, but,often do have gluten due to contamination or use of other spices.
  • There are many other grains which are gluten free, that can help contribute to a balanced diet for those seeking a gluten free lifestyle.
  • Rice is a good alternative to gluten containing grains, but you can not get sufficient nutrients from rice alone

"Arsenic may cause health problems in people who eat significant amounts of rice and rice-based products daily."

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a blanket term for a number of diseases including Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis. Symptoms of IBD vary, but may include diarrhea, fever, fatigue and stools containing blood, pus or mucus. Diagnosis of IBD is usually made before the age of 30, with those of Caucasian or Ashkenazi Jewish heritage most commonly afflicted. Tests to confirm an IBD diagnosis may include stool sample analysis, blood tests and endoscopic procedures. While it cannot be cured, IBD treatment focuses on symptoms and reduction of disease flare-ups. Such treatment can include medication, dietary changes, increasing intake of water and stress management. In rare instances, surgery may be needed.

THC initiates brain cancer cells to destroy themselves

Subject: THC initiates brain cancer cells to destroy themselves





With all the research that goes into cancer treatments, something rather interesting has been found. The active ingredient in marijuana is called THC. This has been found to kill cancer cells without damaging the healthy cells around it. It lab research with mice, they found that brain tumors shrunk when using this substance. This research does not condone people going out and trying to cure themselves by smoking marijuana. That is not showing any promise, even though many people are doing it. It makes one wonder if this THC is really doing in reality what research is showing. Brain cancer patients that are using marijuana have been showing a decrease in their cancer that would indicate there is a lot of validity to the research.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dr. Yu warns cancer patients that they should not consider marijuana a potential cure for cancer and urges that people "not start smoking pot right away as a means of curing their own cancer."
  • These results may help to design new cancer therapies based on the use of medicines containing the active principle of marijuana and/or in the activation of autophagy
  • this is yet another indication that THC has an anti-cancer effect, which means it's certainly worth further study

When it comes to boosting antioxidant intake, recent research indicates there's little benefit from taking diet supplements. A better way, according to a report in the September issue of Mayo Clinic Health Letter, is eating a diet rich in antioxidant-containing foods. Antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, carotene, lycopene, lutein and many other substances may play a role in helping to prevent diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease and macular degeneration.

Key Takeaways:

  • Antioxidants are everywhere. Energy drinks, skin treatments, vitamin supplements, and cold remedies, and all extol the virtues of their special combination of health giving ingredients.
  • To better understand antioxidants we have to start with oxidation, the chemical process of one substance “stealing” an electron from another and changing, or destroying it.
  • You don’t have to understand the chemistry to get the picture. Graphic examples are all around us. When iron is oxidized, it becomes rust.
