Subject: A Healthy Endocannabinoid System ECS Properly Regulates The Following:

Understanding the ECS

Some Endocannabinoids tell out body how much inflammatory messenger molecules to release or with hold. Others tell how fast to move food through the gastrointestinal tract. Still others tell the brain to release or hold neurotransmitters to calm the brain.

  • Stress
  • Memory
  • Mood
  • Inflammation
  • Energy
  • Sleep
  • Metabolism
  • Appetite
  • Appetite
  • Pain response
  • Immune function
  • Nerve signaling
  • Muscle control

Age does Matter!

Aging is a major contributor to a unhealthy ECS function. Lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise, exposure to toxins and stress impact and contribute to a declining ECS.

  • These Factors cause us to product fewer endocannabinoids.
  • Contribute to fewer enzymes known to liberate endocannabinoids in the body.
  • Then, Endocannabinoid receptors loose sensitivity and don't respond well.

Any age can consume CBD and benefit from a balanced ECS. Take the plunge and try CBD today!

  • Use synthetic cannabinoids, which are actually dangerous and can cause injury.
  • Be Difficult to absorb.
  • May not contain the potency they claim.

Sticking with name brands that are known to be effective and hold to supplement industry standards are important, the above mentioned brands use CO2 extraction to preserve all the active ingredients found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Consuming a full spectrum CBD is important!

  • Improve the natural release of cannabinoids each cell makes in the body.
  • Can Directly adhere to the endocannabinoid receptors in our body's.
  • Increase the amount of available cannabinoids in the body.

Subject: Andrographis

Dear Friends,

I believe there’s an essential herb that everyone should be aware of, though not to many realize the powerful benefits of this near miracle botanical. This one nutrient has the ability to strengthen the immune system while also enhancing cardiovascular health, liver and kidney function, joint mobility, and much more. Recent studies have shown this herb to be three times more effective than milk thistle for liver health. And while I know there’s no miracle supplement, that can prevent all disease, there are a growing number of studies to show that this herb can promote overall health and well-being in a tremendous way.

This herb, which I respect and hold in high regard, is andrographis. I believe it’s the next up-and-coming superstar in botanical medicine, and for good reason. I am not yet at liberty to give you the full details on a recent study, but I can tell you the results are impressive. The study involved treating three different groups of animals that had cancerous tumors. One group of animals was treated with curcumin, the second group was treated with french grape seed extract, and the third group was treated with andrographis. And while all three herbs were beneficial in this study, andrographis proved to be the most effective in reducing the cancerous tumors in the animals. I can’t wait to share the study details when it’s published.

It’s no wonder that andrographis has been used in natural medicine for years, due to its powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, cancer-preventive, neuroprotective, and immune-stimulating properties. In Fact, andrographis is the subject of over 800 studies in the National Institute of Health’s PubMed online database, with more to come!

You’ll learn how this amazing herb:

  • Strengthens immune defenses
  • Stops Viruses and resistant bacteria
  • Protects the liver
  • Prevents tumors and cell damage
  • Soothes digestive disorders
  • Prevents pain, inflammation, and arthritis symptoms
  • Supports energy and resilience
  • Protects heart and arteries

And the benefits don’t stop there. Please take the time to read more at TerryTalksNutrition.com

In Good health,

Subject: The evidence is undeniable: Green leafy vegetables take the prizewhen it comes to protecting eye health





One consequence of glaucoma is vision loss or blindness. It is estimated that leafy green vegetables like kale, broccoli and other vegetables are full of minerals and vitamins that prevent diseases like diabetes and heart disease. The question the author wants to answer is whether these leafy vegetables can help in preventing glaucoma. The conclusion of the author is that there is a link between leafy green vegetables and prevention of glaucoma. In fact, it can help prevent the disease. This conclusion was based on a recent study that was conducted by researchers at the Harvard Medical school. Glaucoma is a eye disease that can affect one’s vision leading to vision loss progressively. The common glaucoma is primary open-angle glaucoma. It leads to vision loss without any symptoms or sign. It is estimated that three million Americans are affected with glaucoma and 120,000 people will lose their sight due to having glaucoma. But why is glaucoma produced? This is due to an imbalance in the drainage of the aqueous humor. The researchers analyzed people’s diet and came to the conclusion that leafy green vegetables should be used as a treatment option.

Key Takeaways:

  • Eating more green, leafy vegetables can assist in decreasing the risk of developing glaucoma.
  • A key to why these vegetables are effective is that they help with blood flow near the optic nerve.
  • These vegetables also help with lowering other diseases like those that affect the heart and diabetes.

"The study was published in the Journal of American Medical Association Ophthalmology, and it was conducted by researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School."

Subject: Myrrh oil is worth more than gold when it comes to the healthbenefits it provides





Essential oils are used for aromatherapy but that is just one of their myriad uses. They have been used by Chinese medicine and ayurvedic medicine for centuries due to their numerous health benefits. Now, science has backed many of the claims on health benefits. One of these oils is myrrh. Myrrh is produced from a steam distillation process by extracting the reddish brown sap from the Commiphora myrrha tree. The oil is amber in color and has an earthy aroma. It has a lot of healthy benefits. One of them is that it is used to eliminate harmful bacteria. Ancient Egyptians used this oil to embalm their dead and mummies because it slows down the process of decay. This is due to the antibacterial and antimicrobial properties of myrrh oil. Another advantage of this oil is that it can eliminate some parasites. Myrrh oil has been reported to cure infections such as trichomoniasis and giardiasis. Myrrh oil can also support oral health. It has been used by researchers to treat mouth sores with complete relief for the patients. Other benefits of this wonderful oil are highlighted in the blog.

Key Takeaways:

  • Myrrh is gotten from the plant, Commiphora myrrha, and is its reddish brown dried sap that was extracted using a steam distillation process.
  • One of the many benefits of myrrh which is amber color to the eyes is that it eliminates harmful bacteria from the body.
  • Myrrh was used by traditional Egyptians for the dead to embalm bodies which did not only make them not to smell but to delay decay.

"In fact, myrrh essential oil, which is often used in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine, has many science-backed health benefits."

Subject: New meta-analysis finds that proper vitamin D levels greatlyimprove the health of diabetics and heart patients





Up to a billion people worldwide may not be getting enough vitamin D, and this is a real problem because vitamin D deficiency can increase the risk of cancer, obesity and other health problems. Meta-analysis published by Current Pharmaceutical Design suggests that getting enough vitamin D can decrease fasting glucose and reduce insulin resistance. Vitamin D can also help moderate your bad cholesterol, as well as reducing your levels of C-reactive protein, which is a sign of inflammation.

Key Takeaways:

  • One health problem around the world that is affecting a lot of people is the fact that Vitamin D insufficiency or deficiency is becoming more pronounced.
  • When one is deficient in Vitamin D, some of the health problems that can be encountered are poor glycemic control, obesity, and hypertension.
  • A link has been found between vitamin D deficiency and diabetes and also another study found that the deficiency leads to high blood sugar levels.

"Three of the most significant risk factors for heart disease are high cholesterol, chronic inflammation, and insulin resistance. Researchers wanted to learn more about whether vitamin D supplementation is a way to lower the risk of heart disease or reduce complications in patients who already have it."

Omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce high insulin levels, and lowerthe risk of breast cancer in the process

Subject: Omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce high insulin levels, and lowerthe risk of breast cancer in the process





The elevated levels of insulin found in many people with obesity can elevate their risk of breast cancer, but new studies show that omega-3 free fatty acids can help mitigate this risk. Too much insulin can increase Akt and Erk1/2 phosphorylation, but omega-3s can help to reduce this effect. Likewise, omega-3 free fatty acids were able to cut down proliferation of MCF-7 cells. The research sheds some light onto why omega-3s appear to reduce the risk of breast cancer, although more research is needed.

Key Takeaways:

  • While having a high insulin level is considered a significant factor in one having breast cancer while obese, omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of breast cancer.
  • The researcher wanted to explore whether omega-3 free fatty acids (FFA) do regulate the signaling pathway of insulin in order to prevent breast cancer.
  • According to the findings it is suggested that omega-3 free fatty acids (FFA) reduce the proliferation of breast cancer cells mediated by insulin and insulin activated phosphorylation.

"Researchers found a link between consumption of omega-3s and reduced breast cancer risk by lowering insulin levels. The study, which was published in Nutrition Research, tested the ability of omega-3 free fatty acids (FFAs) to reduce insulin-induced breast cancer cell proliferation."

Subject: Why astragalus is good for your nervous system





Historically used in ancient Chinese medicine, astragalus extract has a plethora of benefits, including the ability to regrow nerves. This specific benefit was verified by a study conducted in Taiwan, where researchers administered the extract to lab rats in hopes of finding out how well in aided in cell regeneration. The results proved that just three grams of astragalus extract per day can help promote neuronal electrophysiological function, which is directly related to the regeneration of cells.

Key Takeaways:

  • The nervous system which plays an important role in the way the parts of our body communicate with themselves can be helped to do so efficiently by astragalus.
  • When studies were done on astragalus extract, earlier research has shown that the herb can be used as a potential nerve growth-promoting factor.
  • When nerve pain occurs it is either due to damage to the nervous system or a problem with the nervous system and is described as a sharp, burning pain.

"These results, which were published in The American Journal of Chinese Medicine, indicate that astragalus is beneficial for the nerves and inflammation."

Subject: Heart-healthy curcumin improves muscle function and increasesexercise capacity





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."

Can sulforaphane help children with autism?

Subject: Can sulforaphane help children with autism?





Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli have enormous amounts of sulforaphane. Research has even shown that when this compound is taken in large quantities, it can help alleviate the problem of autism in children. Autism is a very important consideration because it affects about one in ten children right now; this is according to experts. New cases are also increasing worldwide. The author states that the recent increases in autism reporting is due to the fact that vaccination schedules in children are increasing and vaccines deliver toxins to the child which can damage the nervous system. Sulforaphane though has been shown to be a chemical that can help in alleviating autism in children even after they have been vaccinated. The research was carried out by scientists at the John Hopkins University who found out that eating foods that have enormous amounts of sulforaphane can help autistic children by enhancing their social skills, verbal communication ability, and their general behavior. The compound, sulforaphane, acts through activating the genes that shield the cells from inflammation, damage to the genetic material, oxidative stress, and other factors that are linked to autism. The study was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sulforaphane is a compound that is found in large amounts in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and recent research shows it can help children with autism.
  • The latest estimates on the effects of autism on children shows that the condition now affects about one out of every forty-five children.
  • The rapidly increasing spike in autism cases in children is linked to the increased rate of vaccination in children where the toxins affect their nervous system.

"The results of their experiment showed that the sulforaphane group demonstrated considerable improvements in social behavior by the time of the fourth week of treatment."

Subject: Here is why cannabis oil is being used more and more in beauty products





Cannabis oil is increasingly being used in health products. Political decisions have made it easier to research cannabis. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-psychoactive drug that is found in the cannabis plant with only a little amount of THC, which is the ingredient that is known to make people high in marijuana. Studies have shown that CBD can actually help those dealing with acne, psoriasis, dermatitis, and dry skin due to it's ability to lessen sebum production.

Key Takeaways:

  • The writer ponders over the fact that the recreational use of cannabis is a criminal activity yet it is used extensively in oils, serums, masks, and moisturizers.
  • Cannabidiol (CBD) products are having a huge impact on the market because recent legislative changes have allowed them to experiment more on the benefits of cannabis.

Garlic has a wide range of both culinary and health benefits. It can reduce multiple different risk factors for cardiac disease, including the speed of atherosclerotic plaque formation in the arteries, blood pressure, triglycerides and plasma viscosity. Cumulatively, garlic can reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke by close to 50 percent. Garlic also has formidable antimicrobial properties against a wide range of pathogens, and may help control colds. It also helps remove lead from the body, too.

Key Takeaways:

  • Garlic has a wide array of heart benefits, including effects related to arteriosclerosis prevention, plasma viscosity, blood pressure and more.
  • Multiple studies indicate that aged garlic extract can reduce the buildup of white fat around the heart area in favor of the more dynamic brown fat that poses a lower risk of calcification.
  • Garlic also has superb antimicrobial capabilities against a wide range of pathogens, and may even be able to help you kick a cold.

"Moreover, the aforementioned four-year German study revealed that consumption of garlic powder every day reduced the volume of arteriosclerotic plaque by as much as 18 percent."

Subject: Curcumin performs BETTER than drugs and surgery at treating spinal cord injuries review?





Recent research published in Neurology Research International has yielded indications that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, may be even better than corticosteroids in treating spinal injuries. Curcumin can help fight both primary and secondary inflammation, and may have other benefits as well. For example, it appears to help stimulate stem cells and promote neural progenitor cell growth, both of which are crucial for healing. This is just the latest in a long line of research demonstrating the broad-spectrum health benefits of turmeric.

Key Takeaways:

  • Among the feats that curcumin is accredited with are reducing inflammation, fighting cancer, and preventing depression. Now, it can be used to treat spinal cord injuries.
  • This research is the first systematic data on how curcumin can have an impact in spinal cord injuries and relieve many persons of the pain of surgery.
  • When someone has a spinal cord injury the factors at play are inflammatory processes and this is where curcumin can work best.

"The researchers found that in all studies comparing the two, curcumin outperformed corticosteroids every time."

Subject: Is vitamin D a key Factor in breast cancer prevention?





CDC data shows that nearly 41,000 American women died of breast cancer in 2013 alone, making it a leading causing of death among women from all racial groups. However, research indicates a strong association between living in a place with lots of sunshine and lower risk of breast cancer. This is almost certainly due to sunlight’s role in production of vitamin D. Only the type of vitamin D produced by the skin from sun exposure seems to have this kind of strong impact on breast cancer rates.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cancer is an ancient disease that dates back several years with the earliest known writing on it recorded about 1,600 years before Christ.
  • Among all the cancers, the most common and most feared of them all by many women is breast cancer and this is regardless of ethnicity.
  • While many scientists and institutions are battling hard to find a cure for cancer, there is a vitamin, Vitamin D, that can be used to solve the problem.

"In fact, breast cancer is the leading cause of death among Hispanic American women, and the second highest cause among white, black and Asian/Pacific women."

Candida albicans can form biofilms — very thin, very sticky coatings of microbes — if it becomes too abundant in your system. These overgrowths of Candida can cause brain fog, a wide variety of digestive complaints, weight gain, joint pain, sores and a panoply of other symptoms. These overgrowth can be caused by everything from antibiotics and stress to dietary factors. Caprylic acid is a compound found in coconut oil which may be able to help control Candida overgrowth by eliminating embedded biofilms.

Key Takeaways:

  • When one has a stubborn candida albicans fungal growth it can result in symptoms like joint pain, brain fog and depression that wreaks havoc on his health.
  • Candida infections form two biofilms on the skin with thin adhesive layers of microbes and the challenge is to find antibiotics against them without any side effects.
  • In a new study, researchers have found that caprylic acid, which is a component found in coconut oil, can be used against candida albicans biofilms.

  • The number of Americans reported to be suffering from depression is reaching record numbers and in 2015 it was recorded that over 16 million Americans had one depressive episode.
  • Some 11 percent of Americans take some form of antidepressant for their condition and these antidepressant most have side effects with taking them.
  • As people continue to search for alternative treatments to treat their depression it was discovered that a spice, saffron, could be useful.

"Along with the growing rates of depression, the use of antidepressant medication has continued to skyrocket. Some 2013 estimates from the CDC reveal that usage of these drugs increased by upwards of 400 percent in just 25 years."

Even though they refer to both types of cannabis, it should be noted that the two types are not interchangeable and have only a slightly different chemical compound. The study showed that active cannabis use provides a profound protective effect against non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, independent of other known metabolic risk factors. Unfortunately they haven't yet uncovered how precisely how it provides benefit to the patient in need, it does provide a reduction in pain.

Key Takeaways:

  • A large study of patients with a history of alcoholism showed that cannabis use can lower the odds of liver diseases, including cancer.
  • Hemp, though it doesn't have enough THC to get patients 'high', still has medicinal properties.
  • Smoking cannabis has been shown to be over 100 times safer than drinking alcohol.

"The study found that using cannabis correctly significantly lowered the odds of various liver diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and even hepatocellular carcinoma, a type of liver cancer."

Everyone has heard that probiotics can help us stay regular, but they can do a lot more than that. Taking probiotics can help to boost your immune system. Pro-biotics can lower blood pressure and cholesterol level. They can help you stay hydrated and fight inflammation, both of which can improve the condition of your skin. It has become apparent also that the mind and the gut are interconnected. Therefore, taking probiotics for a healthy gut will support greater mental health.

Key Takeaways:

  • We are constantly being advised to take probiotics because they can help in making us healthy, but there are many more things they can help us in.
  • An unhealthy gut can lead to weight gain because one has constipation and is not able to digest food properly while a healthy gut leads to weight loss.
  • Two factors that can contribute to a sick heart are blood pressure and cholesterol levels. It has been shown that probiotics can reduce both of these.

"A healthy gut means stronger immunity, and when you feed your gut probiotics, it can go a long way in boosting your immune system. We can all use an extra immune boost this time of year."

There are serious health consequences associated with being deficient in vitamins B3, B6 and B12, including many with neurological or psychiatric elements. B vitamins are very important to healthy brain function, and can also play a role in whether and how quickly diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s develop. Specifically, being deficient in these vitamins can increase levels of homocysteine, which is associsted with sharply increasing the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s. Getting enough of the most important B vitamins can suppress homocysteine and help keep your brain healthy.

Key Takeaways:

  • A strong nutritional foundation is critical to preventing Alzheimer’s and optimizing overall cognitive function.
  • B vitamins, especially vitamins B3, B6, and B12, all play a role in cellular functioning, energy production, and overall brain health.

Subject: Eating more citrus fruits is an easy way to prevent dementia





A documented study has shown that citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges may have the ability to prevent dementia. The Japanese study says that eating these fruits was directly linked to improved brain health and memory formation. In fact, the subjects who ate citrus fruits daily were 23% less likely to develop dementia. This is likely due to the nobiletin content in citruses, which also helps to reduce cholesterol levels. There are no studies yet as to how the consumption of citrus fruits affects those who already have dementia, however.

Key Takeaways:

  • In a recent study conducted in Japan it was discovered that people who take citrus fruits like orange, lemons, and grapefruits, can reduce their risk of having dementia.
  • The researchers in the study found a direct link between taking citrus fruits and decreased chances of having dementia which reduced by about 23 percent.
  • Citrus fruits have a neuroprotective effect on those taking it which can be linked to a compound, nobiletin, a flavonoid found in the peel that boosts the brain.

"The study, which spanned for up to seven years, looked at data from over 13,000 older adults in Japan, which included their diet and brain health."

Subject: How Much Omega-3 Per Day Should You Take?

Omega-3 is a common supplement with lots of health benefits, however, finding the right supplement comes with a lot of choices. The source of the Omega-3 could be a variety of oils, as well as the quantity of the supplement that is right for you. The amount of Omega-3 that you need is dependent on different factors including how much Omega-6 you consume each day, your size, and gender. Furthermore, people will take different quantities of Omega-3 depending on which health benefit they are most interested in.

Key Takeaways:

  • It can be pretty challenging to pick out the right omega-3 for one to use because options exist like krill oil, fish oil, and algal oil.
  • Not getting the right amount of omega-3 can cause a toll on one’s health because it plays a large role in health from heart health to brain function.
  • When one is deficient in omega-3, some of the hallmark signs are dry, scaly skin, sleep disturbances, dermatitis, and mood swings.

Subject: The common causes of candida overgrowth





Candida albicans is a form of yeast that is present in small colonies across the human body. Unfortunately, when these clusters grow to an abnormal size, the heightened populations can cause some serious health concerns such as mouth ulcers, gastrointestinal issues, and even psychological symptoms. Researchers are now finding links between the overgrowth of Candida albicans and potential triggers such as: fermented foods like pickles, contraceptives, the overuse of antibiotics, and several other contributing factors.

Key Takeaways:

  • Candida albicans is common in the human body but common signs of candidiasis or candida overgrowth include bloating, diarrhea, fatigue, flatulence, and joint pain.
  • Contraceptives or birth control pills, and intrauterine devices can kill good bacteria and encourage the growth of yeast in the human body.
  • Although fermented foods like kimchi, pickles and sauerkraut, are good for the gut bacteria, they can also encourage candida overgrowth so it is wise to eliminate them.

"However, when candida populations swell into an overgrowth, you can develop severe health problems."

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals such as BPA are a group of over 80,000 manufactured chemicals that are present within the products that we use on a consistent basis. These chemicals can unfortunately lead to many health implications such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Studies have even shown that those who are exposed to higher levels of EDCs are more prone to developing Vitamin D deficiencies. All of these harmful health risks show just how dangerous these man-made chemicals can be to our bodies.

Key Takeaways:

Did you know that over 50 pounds of fructose is consumed annually each year by the average individual? Many people are unaware that this fructose can lead to an addiction that is just as strong as alcoholism. In fact, the Journal of the American Dietetic Association specifically found that there are similar social and metabolic components when you compare alcoholism to someone with an addiction to fructose. This shows just how dangerous everyday exposure to the artificial additive can be.

Key Takeaways:

  • For sweet lovers who would not do without a sweet, it has been found that fructose that is industrially processed is as addictive and damaging as alcohol.
  • Fructose or fruit sugar is healthy when taken from fruits naturally but it becomes unhealthy when the fructose is industrially produced.
  • Fructose and glucose are sugars in the body but fructose is more damaging to the body because it can lead to glycation which causes tissue damage.
