Subject: Is ginseng a natural and effective remedy for cancer?





When one has cancer and learns that the type he has is treatable, it is a huge relief until they go through the treatment regimen. Thanks to ginseng, there could now be an easier way to treat cancer. Ginseng targets the stem cells that are responsible for causing cancer, or the tumor stem cells. Ginseng is particularly recommended because chemotherapy and radiotherapy have their drawbacks. They can make regular cancer cells that are not active to turn to cancerous cells and thereby increase the risk. It is only recently that it was discovered that a compound in ginseng, ginsenosides, can be used to treat cancer although the herb has been used for treating humans for centuries. It is believed that given its many effects on cancer, ginseng will most likely be recommended by doctors for use to treat cancer. Ginseng can also help cancer patients in other ways. It was discovered that patients who were sluggish and fatigued after treatment were helped to feel better by ginseng. Even if one is not diagnosed with cancer, he can still benefit from ginseng because it has so many health benefits.

Key Takeaways:

  • When people learn that they have cancer, they are usually relieved to learn that the type they have is treatable but astonished at the treatment.
  • Ginseng is good and effective for cancer because research has shown it to target tumor stem cells which are responsible for causing cancer.
  • Radiotherapy and chemotherapy sometimes make regular cells, like the regular breast cells, to turn into cancerous breast cancer cells and this makes them ineffective.

"While you’re certain to be thankful for your life, it’s only natural to wish there was an easier way – and perhaps there could be one soon, thanks to ginseng."

Subject: Natural pain relief: Capsicum, lavender and peppermint essentialoils can help relieve fibromyalgia pain





Because essential oils can relieve pain and increase cell energy production, researchers believe that these essential oils like lavender, capsicum, and peppermint, can be used to treat fibromyalgia. When one is afflicted with fibromyalgia, he will always have chronic pain, constant fatigue, and regular changes in mood. These symptoms have only few ways to treat them. It has been noted that some supplements, of which essential oils are among them, can be used to treat these symptoms of fibromyalgia. This is because they are already being used to relieve health problems that are similar to fibromyalgia. One example of these is lavender oil. This is used in aromatherapy as a relaxing compound. And it regulates mood responses and the central nervous systems, which symptoms are related to fibromyalgia. Another of these essential oils is peppermint oil. Because it alleviates the pain muscles face by chronic stress and increases stamina, it is a good remedy for fibromyalgia.

Key Takeaways:

  • People who are down with fibromyalgia experience chronic pain, constant fatigue, and changes in their mood that is sharp and treatments for these symptoms are few.
  • Lavender essential oil is used often in aromatherapy because it is a relaxing compound which is involved in regulating the mood and the nervous system.
  • Many participants who participated in a 2012 study reported that they slept better when they slept in a room filled with the vaporized essential oil.

"Given these beneficial effects, researchers believe that the oils drawn from capsicum, lavender, and peppermint could be potential therapies for fibromyalgia."

Subject: Combine turmeric and black pepper to boost health benefits ofcurcumin





Black pepper and turmeric turn out to provide complementary effects, with the piperine in black pepper making it easier for your body to absorb and use the curcumin in turmeric. Piperine helps protect curcumin from inflammatory processes long enough for the body to use it. Curry powder, which contains both turmeric and black pepper, is perhaps the most obvious way to get bother piperine and curcumin in your diet. However, if you truly hate the taste of turmeric, there are supplements available that have both black pepper and turmeric in them.

Key Takeaways:

  • Due to piperine that is contained in pepper that boosts the body’s ability to digest substances, it helps to take turmeric with black pepper.
  • Black pepper and turmeric have lots of similarities when it comes to the health benefits they provide and both are considered aromatic spices.
  • The yellow color of turmeric comes from the compound curcumin which it contains while the black color of black pepper comes from piperine.

"At the same time, it preserves turmeric from inflammatory processes that would normally break down the spice before it could be processed by the digestive system."

Subject: New research on vitamin K suggests that it may promote eye health





According to a recent Belgian study, vitamin K protects the arteries that supply the ocular organs with blood and acts as a shield against damaging calcification. The researchers found that vitamin K is beneficial for eye health in that it protects the optic nerves from possible optic damage due to glaucoma. The researchers were trying to determine if there was a link to vitamin K deficiency and poor eye health. This study points to a need for more research into the molecular pathways affected by vitamin and the benefits of vitamin K supplementation.

Key Takeaways:

  • A new health benefit for Vitamin K has been observed by Belgian researchers and they report that the vitamin protects the eyes from human calcification.
  • The study spanned the course of 11 years and it involved the participation of 1,000 flemish adults who were randomly selected and were in their 40s.
  • Vitamin K levels and the levels of active Matrix Gla proteins (MGP) were evaluated. The MGP proteins were responsible for preventing calcification to take place in the arteries.

"Based on their findings, the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven) researchers observed that taking vitamin K supplements could help maintain the health of the eyes by protecting the optic nerves from injury caused by glaucoma."

There's a lot of buzz about curcumin these days and for good reason. A recent study published in The Journal of Applied Physiology suggests that it can help to improve athletic performance in heart failure patients. Other research has shown that it could reduce muscle loss in individuals with heart disease. Due to its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects properties, it also can be a very effective post-workout supplement. In fact, researchers found that people that consumed one gram of curcumin twice daily had decreased muscle injuries and less pain in their lower legs.

Key Takeaways:

  • To add to the growing research on curcumin, a new research has shown that taking curcumin can improve athletic performance in people having heart failure.
  • The study was published in the Journal of Applied Physiology and it showed that persons taking curcumin have enhanced muscle function and increased exercise capacity.
  • Curcumin, which is the active ingredient in turmeric, has for a long time been used in Asian medicine to relieve symptoms of digestive problems and skin wounds.

"For the study, researchers from the University of Nebraska Medical Center looked at the effects of curcumin on a mouse model of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. The compound is known to promote activation of Nrf2 protein, which regulates the expression of antioxidant enzymes that prevent and repair damage from oxidative stress and boost exercise performance."

Subject: Can aloe vera be used to treat sepsis?





Aloe vera can be used for plenty of skin conditions, but new evidence suggests it could be used for blood infections, because of the metabolites in the plant. A Chinese and Japanese study looked at this using mice, and found that aloe metabolites suppressed inflammation, due to reduced nitric oxide level. This is important because sepsis harms the body's own tissues and organs, and can be fatal. Aloe also has other uses, such as skin care, warding off cancer, treating digestive issues, and lowering blood sugar levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sepsis though not too common should be seen as a serious condition because it can lead to death or organ failure if the condition is not immediately treated.
  • A team of researchers from China and Japan sought out natural treatment for this disease and found out that aloe vera plant metabolites could be helpful.
  • The trials were conducted in both the laboratory and in animals and the team sought to find out how aloe vera metabolites has anti-inflammatory effects against sepsis.

"After using various tests to determine inflammation, the Chinese and Japanese research team found that aloe metabolites suppressed the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs). Aloe metabolites also decreased the production of proinflammatory cytokines and nitric oxide."

If you are losing hair faster than normal, you could be biotin deficient. Biotin is also known as Vitamin B7 and supports the health and growth of hair and nails. Nuts, sweet potatoes and dark leafy vegetables are all rich in Biotin. Onions also have biotin. The best source of biotin is actually animal liver. If you cannot eat liver, consider eggs instead. Three eggs a day will provide your daily requirement of Biotin without the taste of liver.

Key Takeaways:

  • People who suffer from a deficiency of biotin are in that small group of people who frequently lose their hair more than usual.
  • Certain food groups have been found to contain large quantities of biotin and people who are low in it can take these food to increase their levels.
  • As a person grows older, the minimum level of biotin he needs to have in his body rises and for a typical adult it is 30 micrograms.

"Also known as vitamin B7, biotin supports the healthy growth of hair, skin, and nails."

People who frequently experience bouts of anxiety and frequent periods of stress may find it hard to wind down after a hard day at work. This can then result in the inability to relax and inability to sleep. That is why anxiety and stress are recognized as the two most prominent leading causes of insomnia. Insomnia on the other hand takes a major toll on one’s physical health and mental well-being. What could be the solution? Researchers have found that this could be keeping a jasmine plant in the house. The scent which the jasmine plant releases has been linked to a reduction in anxiety and stress. The author states that the Jasmine plant is a flower that blooms at night with a sweet fragrance and exciting smell. Companies use it to make teas, incense, essential oils, and then perfumes. Its health benefits are immense and it has been used to treat diabetes, hepatitis, and cancer. It can now be proved that it can used to reduce anxiety and stress in individuals. It is estimated that about 40 million adults are affected yearly by anxiety and stress. The author then states the pathways in which jasmine works.

Key Takeaways:

  • People who experience frequent bouts of anxiety at the end of the day or frequent episodes of stress often find it difficult to wind down.
  • Anxiety and stress are two of the leading causes of insomnia and there is nothing like not being able to sleep at the end of the day.
  • The solution to insomnia has been found by several studies to be keeping a jasmine plant in the room that helps to reduce anxiety levels.

"One way to combat a high level of toxins in the air is to keep a jasmine plant nearby. Research concludes a jasmine plant in your room can serve as relief for sleeplessness, anxiety, and stress, among other illnesses. Simply breathing the aromatic scent of the plant can help to significantly calm your anxieties."

Licorice has been used in candies for a long time and recently it was found that it can be used for oral health. Although licorice has fallen out of favor for anise oil in use in confectioneries, it is still safe to the health. Some of the ways it has been used in traditional medicine in China and the Middle East is for the treatment of eye problems, cough, gut issues, and problems with the skin. According to new research, licorice has a role to play in oral and dental health. It has been found effective in stopping the spread of gum disease and tooth decay, and several other dental health problems. Licorice has active components that have been identified that aids it in this effect. The most important are licoricidin and licorisoflavan A. They help in stopping the growth of bacteria that aids in reducing the damage to the mouth and gums. To dilute the effect of saliva that makes a compound lose its action, it is recommended that one makes a lollipop of licorice to benefit from its effects.

Key Takeaways:

  • Licorice which used to be used for adding flavor to candy has fallen out of favor and anise oil is used for that instead.
  • The herb has been recommended for the treatment of several ailments like eye problems, cough, issues with the gut, and problems with the skin.

Subject: Shiitake mushrooms are a powerful medicinal superfood





A new study has found that adding fermented shiitake mushroom to rice bran is effective in inhibiting the growth of Salmonella typhimurium. The study was conducted on mouse organs and it was published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine. This formulation has been hailed as a new antimicrobial food-compatible formulation. The study was conducted on murine macrophage cells and in mice. Before this, it was known that the bioactive compounds in rice brans and in shiitake mushrooms have a lot of potential health benefits in mice, cells, and rodents. When the mycelia cells were compared against non-fermented ones, it was found that the bioactive compounds present in the fermented shiitake mushrooms could not be found in the ones that had not fermented. Further findings showed that the pathogen, Salmonella, was inhibited in infected macrophage cells and in organs in the mouse such as the cecum, mesenteric lymph node, spleen, and the liver. Another finding was that there was increased secretion of the bacteria in the feces in mouse. Overall, this findings show that fermented shiitake mushrooms with rice brans can be used as an antibiotic and antimicrobial food.

Key Takeaways:

  • To carry out the study a team of researchers from Korea and the US tried to understand the effect of shiitake mushroom with rice bran on macrophage cells.
  • The component produced in rice plants are bioactive rice brans and hulls while that produced by mushrooms are bioactive polysaccharides and other compounds.
  • When mushroom mycelia that was fermenting with rice bran cells were inspected it was found that they have bioactive compounds that are absent in the non-fermenting mycelia.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) doesn't just cause uncomfortable digestive symptoms, but it also can result in intestinal hyper-permeability, which decreases the rate in which your body can absorb vitamins and nutrients that are required to thrive. An amino acid called glutamine can help by reducing the rate in which intestinal hyper-permeability occurs, allowing your system to absorb primary nutrients in a much more effective manner. It also showed to reduce the symptoms of IBS all-around.

Key Takeaways:

  • About 45 million Americans have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and they know this can be really upsetting because sometimes they have constipation and diarrhea with it.
  • The journal Gut contained a 2018 study that could be of help to people with IBS because it assessed the effectiveness and safety of an oral glutamine supplement.
  • Glutamine is an amino acid, among millions of amino acids produced by the body and that can also be found in food which are building blocks for protein.

"In the quest to find natural solutions for IBS or digestive upset, adding a glutamine supplement to a well-balanced diet could be the next key step."

New Japanese research suggests that omega-3 fatty acids may help mitigate one of the major psychophysiological symptoms of PTSD: a racing, pounding heart. The researchers divided over 80 survivors of major accidents into a control group and a group that received supplementary omega-3s. The omega-3 group had lower resting heart rates and also lower heart rates after being subjected to imagery related to their accidents. Omega-3s play an important role in brain health and neurological functions, and have already displayed potential utility in the treatment of depression.

Key Takeaways:

  • After a person has witnessed or experienced a traumatic event, he could get the condition called post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) which is a mental health condition.
  • People who have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often experience symptoms such as a pounding heart and doctors have discovered that omega-3 fatty acids could help them.
  • To determine if fatty acids could help traumatic event survivors, the researchers in Japan recruited 83 persons who have such events and gave them fatty acid supplements.

Commercial food industries have long used artificial colors to enhance the look of their products. With consumers now trending toward wanting more natural ingredients in their food and beverages, natural colors attained from plants is an easy solution. For example, the anthocyanins, which give grape skins their various colors, can be used to make colas several different colors. They also have a beneficial health component, as they contain anti oxidants that are know to aid in several areas of health and nutritional balance.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some of the problems food manufacturers cause is using synthetic food to provide color when they make beverages and producing a lot of environmental wastes.
  • Researchers in Brazil wanted to help the environment so they researched on ways to use residues of food processing as colorants in drinks.
  • When they compared their research on grape fruit and kefir, they found that anthocyanins from grape fruit when applied to kefir was sustainable and good for the health.

Subject: How Can Cannabis Help with Autoimmune Disorders?





Autoimmune diseases affect nearly 50 million people living in the United States. These diseases can lead to either over-activation, where antibodies may attack otherwise healthy organs, or under-activation, where not enough antibodies are produced to effectively fight off diseases. Using cannabis may be an alternative means of dealing with autoimmune disorders. Cannabinoids have been shown to be able to bind to receptors within the body which appears to be a possible therapeutic key. Studies with hepatitis, psoriasis, fibromyalgia, Crohn's disease, and Multiple Sclerosis have shown cannabis to provide some relief. However, there are some risk of discomfort from side-effects that could occur with using cannabis to treat autoimmune diseases.

Key Takeaways:

  • Autoimmune disorders, which result from a hyper-reactive or under-reactive immune system, affect 50 million Americans.
  • Three well known autoimmune disorders are multiple sclerosis, Crohn's Disease and psoriasis.
  • Evidence suggests that the use of cannabis has given some sufferers of psoriasis relief from the inflammatory effects of the condition.

"In cases of over-activation, the immune system produces antibodies in response to an unknown trigger that attacks the body's own tissues and organs."

Despite some of the negative press that the nut group receives overall, there is some significant proof that incorporating nuts, specifically walnuts into your diet can have positive effects. From assisting with cancer prevention, boosting your mood, weight loss assistance and even strengthen your bones, the benefits could outweigh your negative mindset. Also be aware that the method in which you prepare your walnuts could also change the properties of the un-roasted nut structure. Remaining natural with your nut selection is usually best.

Key Takeaways:

  • One of the widely grown and consumed nuts due to their health benefits are walnuts. They have bioactive compounds such as polyunsaturated fats, polyphenols, and dietary fiber.
  • While walnuts are popularly eaten raw or roasted, it has long been assumed that heat treatment may change them but a study reveals that this is not the case.
  • The study focused on whether roasted walnuts still have their anticancer properties and they tested both raw and roasted walnuts to in vitro digestion and fermentation.

"These results, which were published in the journal Nutrition Research, indicated that walnuts reduce the risk of colon cancer by inducing expression of genes involved in detoxification and by causing growth inhibition and apoptosis in colon adenoma cells."

Subject: Powerful antioxidant helps us burn fat, lose weight and avoid premature aging





Milk thistle is known for being good for the liver, but researchers are finding more and more evidence that points to an antioxidant called glutathione being a key component as well. The powerful antioxidant called glutathione allows our bodies to kick up their natural fat burning abilities which helps trigger weight loss in an almost effortless manner. Studies have also shown that a deficiency in glutathione can cause weight gain through a reduction in mitochondrial fat burning.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is astonishing to note that two out of three Americans are overweight and obese and this makes them susceptible to diabetes and heart diseases.
  • Researchers are increasingly discovering that glutathione which is an antioxidant molecule that is produced by the body could be used in the fight against obesity and chronic disease.
  • This natural substance is not abundantly found in humans equally because the supply of glutathione can fall with aging and exposure environmental toxins make it more challenging to find.

"Glutathione is synthesized from the amino acids cysteine, glycine and glutamate. But, as we age, two of these “building blocks” – cysteine and glycine – decline, causing shortfalls in glutathione production."

Subject: Curcumin stops cancer cell growth, NEW scientific discovery





Turmeric is hailed for its properties in helping to regulate blood sugar, fighting inflammation and infection, and helping cancer patients. In helping cancer patients, turmeric is able to affect cancerous cells without harming the non-cancerous cells. DYRK2 is inhibited by the turmeric, keeping the cancer from growing. Carfilzomib used with turmeric helped with cancer cell death with minimal affect to the healthy cells. Turmeric also promotes angiogenesis, which stops the growth of new blood vessels which support the growth of tumors, and also doesn't allow development of adhesion which leads to metastasizing of cancers.

Key Takeaways:

  • Turmeric was first cultivated in the SouthEast Asia and India. It is a kitchen spice that is revered for its ability to fight inflammation and regulate blood sugar.
  • New research shows that turmeric has even more potential. Due to its active compound, curcumin, research has shown that it could be used to fight cancer.
  • A new study conducted by researchers in United States and China showed that turmeric can successfully be used to target several aggressive forms of cancer.

"The team used cutting-edge X-ray crystallography to obtain 3D images – in which curcumin could distinctly be seen binding to the enzyme at the atomic level."

CDC statistics indicate that most adults will get hit by the common cold at least a few times a year, but the antimicrobial properties of oregano oil may be able to help reduce your symptoms. A 2011 study, for example, found that an oregano oil throat spray could help control many cold symptoms. When combined with an overall healthy lifestyle, oregano oil can give your immune system an important boost. Ginger, probiotics, drinking herbal tea with honey and staying hydrated can also help.

Key Takeaways:

  • The U.S Centers for disease Control estimates that among adults the possibility of catching a cold is about 2 to 3 times per year.
  • Many persons, including adults and children, catch colds several times because they are generally uninformed about how to naturally prevent and treat bacterial and viral infections.
  • It has been scientifically proven that oregano is a natural remedy for alleviating cold and flu symptoms, and it can also help you prevent a cold in the first place.

"Be sure to look for a high quality oregano oil supplement (such as wild P73 oregano oil, which stands for “polyphenol 73%” and indicates a medicinal grade quality). To use, mix 3 to 10 drops of oregano oil in a tablespoon of water, swish it around your mouth for 30 seconds, then swallow."

While we don't what causes Alzheimer's disease, new research from Arizona State University points to choline as a promising treatment for the condition. When mice consumed large amounts of choline, they showed positive improvements in spatial memory. Furthermore, these positive benefits were evident in their offspring, even though they did not supplement directly with choline. Researchers believe that choline helps to control brain inflammation and neuron death, processes that both contribute to Alzheimer's. Experts recommend that adults take 550 milligrams of choline daily for optimal brain health

Key Takeaways:

  • Although modern medicine has made advancement in several areas, there are some conditions that it is still trying to control without success and one of them is Alzheimer’s.
  • Although there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s, recent research from the Arizona State University shows that choline has some promise.
  • Mice who were bred to exhibit symptoms of Alzheimer’s were used in the research and promising results were obtained when these mice were fed high amount of choline.

"In other words, choline could help protect against this illness across several generations. It was the first time researchers have been able to show the transgenerational benefits of choline supplementation."

Subject: Why magnesium may be the single most important nutrient you need totake for heart health





Magnesium deficiency, which afflicts close to 50 percent of the U.S. population, can have a profoundly negative impact on your health. Failure to consume enough magnesium can increase insulin resistance and create a higher risk of cardiac disease. A Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) study found that magnesium-deficient people had substantially higher levels of harmful C-Reactive Proteins — associated with inflammation and heightened risk of heart disease— present in their blood. A second MUSC study confirmed this association while also noting that magnesium supplements could help reduce the health impacts of not getting enough magnesium from dietary sources.

Key Takeaways:

  • It has been discovered that the most vital nutrient for supporting cardiovascular health is magnesium but many American adults are lacking in it.
  • When magnesium is found in your body at low levels, you can build up insulin resistance which brings up the possibility of type 2 diabetes.
  • A real connection between magnesium deficiency and a protein, C-reactive protein (CRP) have been found and C-reactive protein can trigger acute inflammations.

"If you do not have enough magnesium in your body, you can become more prone to various diseases and disorders."

As you may know, heavy metals are everywhere, in our water, food, dental fillings, and air. Fortunately, according to the latest research, modified citrus pectin is a substance that can help to safely remove these toxic metals from the body. The accumulation of heavy metals in the body not only can lead to chronic disease, but it also compromises the body's ability to heal from illness. Some common toxic heavy metals are lead, mercury, and cadmium. To reduce your body's burden of heavy metals, take 15 grams of the product PectaSol three times a day.

Key Takeaways:

  • We have a toxic burden that surrounds us daily. It could be in personal care products, in paints, vaccines, or conventional dental fillings.
  • Western medicine tries to downplay the risk we take due to the toxic burden we carry daily, but traditional medicines emphasizes that it impacts on the health.
  • Even when is still under the conventional threshold for exposure to toxicity, accumulation of heavy metal can impact the health by depleting antioxidants and detoxifiers.

"Mercury, a known neurotoxin, is found in fish such as swordfish and shark, as well as in “silver” dental fillings. The crazy part is: we know that mercury can seriously affect the nervous system, causing tremors, loss of coordination, muscular spasms and even death."

Green tea not only tastes good, but it also has very beneficial health factors. Among these factors includes the fact that it contains catechins, which are polyphenols that are a good barrier to diabetes and stress. These catechins can also help with metabolic syndrome, which is a syndrome that causes people to have higher than normal levels of abdominal fat and a slowed down metabolism. This could potentially lead to lowered rates of obesity when consumed by the public.

Key Takeaways:

  • Japanese scientists have recently discovered that a component in green tea, catechins, has the ability to improve metabolic syndrome and reduce abdominal fat in the obese and overweight.
  • It is estimated that more than 34 percent of adults in the US suffer from metabolic syndrome and symptoms include abnormal lipid metabolism and abnormal glucose metabolism.
  • Diagnosing metabolic syndrome early on is very important otherwise it could lead to conditions such as the development of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.

Subject: Supplementing with omega-3 can improve sperm motility and qualityof seminal plasma





Researchers located in Australia and Iran tested 143 men who were facing infertility in order to see if consumption of omega-3 fatty acids could improve their fertility rates. The docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) that is naturally introduced to the body through omega-3 fatty acids was shown to significantly increase fertility levels in the men who engaged in routine consumption, and it also supplemented their levels of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), which is also directly related to adequate fertility rates.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers in both Australia and Iran while working on omega-3 fatty acids and their relation to fertility found that Omega-3 fatty acids significantly improved sperm motility in infertile men.
  • Some of the effects the researchers looked at is on docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) supplementation on total sperm concentration and sperm motility.
  • From the treatments carried out on infertile men, they found that there was no effect on sperm concentrations or sperm DHA due to the administration period.

"In conducting the review, they investigated three studies on the supplementation of DHA or EPA, either alone or in combination with other micronutrients, in a total of 147 infertile men. The studies also involved 143 infertile men who belonged to the control group or did not receive any omega-3 fatty acid supplement."

Pomegranates have long been recognized for their beautiful red seeds that present in a much more vibrant light than many other fruits. Now researchers are finding that pomegranates have several health benefits, especially when it comes to treating chronic inflammatory conditions. A study performed on mice showed that the inflammation biomarkers present within their systems were dramatically reduced when they were given pomegranate extract on a continual basis, showing that it could have a similar impact on humans.

Key Takeaways:

  • One of the healthiest foods on the planet, pomegranates, was used by researchers to treat malaria-induced injury using an oxidative stress murine-model.
  • The researchers infected the laboratory mice with Plasmodium chabaudi, a species that causes malaria, and then fed the mice extracts of pomegranates.
  • Apart from the fact that the mice treated with pomegranates extract had fewer spleen injuries, there were lower numbers of inflammation biomarkers in them.

"Scientists from King Saud University concluded that pomegranates can boost the immune system and treat diseases such as malaria."

A cohort study which followed 900 participants over the span of 12 years found that people with higher levels of Vitamin D were at significantly lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes over the course of the study. This study could have huge health implications for the 84 million Americans with prediabetes symptoms, especially in light of past research which suggests that getting enough Vitamin D also plays a role in cardiac health. The best way to get enough Vitamin D is regular exposure to sunlight.

Key Takeaways:

  • A study that included 900 people and took 12 years discovered the role vitamin D plays in preventing Type 2 diabetes.
  • Those with 30 ng/mL of vitamin D had only a third of the chance of developing Type 2 diabetes than those whose levels were lower.
  • Those with 50 ng/mL of vitamin D were five times less likely to develop diabetes.

"If you’re concerned about developing Type 2 diabetes, there’s a good chance you keep your sugar consumption to a minimum."

Subject: Emerging research finds inositol to be an effective treatment forpanic disorder





Inositol is another name for vitamin B8, and it is showing to be highly effective in the treatment of panic disorder. Taking doses of approximately 20 grams per day has shown to reduce both the frequency and severity of panic attacks that those with the disorder experience. In a recent study, inositol was shown to be just as effective as fluvoxamine in treating panic disorder. Inositol has also shown to help in treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

Key Takeaways:

  • The renewed interest in this compound, Inositol, which is sometimes called vitamin B8 although it really is not a vitamin, is due to phosphatidylinositol, a crucial building block.
  • Persons who have panic attacks can benefit from the use of Inositol because Inositol can reduce the severity and frequency of panic attacks.
  • Panic attacks as being defined as abrupt periods of extreme fear or discomfort that would tend to peak within minutes and some symptoms are racing heart and sweating.

"However, based on the results of study, a type of sugar called inositol could be used to reduce the frequency of these panic attacks."

Subject: Bombshell study shows aspartame depletes neurotransmitters in thebrain, makes brains vulnerable to chemical damage from food and vaccines





A recent study looked at the effects of aspartame on brain functions in rats. The results were impressive. The results showed a direct correlation between the dose of aspartame and the destruction of neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are required for the function of your brain's neurons. The rats who were fed the aspartame had a reduction of Serotonin and an increase in Epinephrine. Epinephrine is associated with your flight or fight reactions. This study reminds us that although an ingredient might be approved by the FDA, it could have long term effects.

Key Takeaways:

  • In this study on the effects of aspartame on the brain, rats were fed aspartame for 10-40 days then they were decapitated and the brains analyzed.
  • The study found that there was a relationship between the consumption of aspartame and the destruction of neurotransmitters that was dependent on the dose given.
  • The result was that aspartame significantly reduces important neurotransmitters in the brain while increasing aggressively the chemicals that initiate a fight or flight reaction.

"A bombshell scientific study reveals that aspartame may be one of the most damaging vectors for the widespread “dumbing down” of humanity."
