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!

Subject: Use warm water and turmeric to cleanse your body, support digestion





It is estimated that a lot of Americans are affected by digestive problems. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) alone affects about 20 percent of Americans according to a 2010 estimate and that number should have increased by now. Pharmaceutical products being used to treat these symptoms can do more harm than good. Some of the drugs used for proton pump inhibitors of which 113 million are prescribed every year have been identified as the cause of bone fractures in older women and clostridium infections that result in diarrhea and life threatening conditions in older people. Some natural products though can do the work of cleansing your digestive system without the side effects and also help detox the body. One of them is turmeric. Just add some turmeric in warm water and one is ready to have these benefits. Warm water on its own is very important to the body but when mixed with turmeric it will help create bile that breaks down and absorbs fat in the body. Bile eliminates wastes in the body thereby detoxing your body the natural way.

Key Takeaways:

  • The purview of the NIDDK, otherwise known as the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Disorders, covers a range of digestive complaints.
  • The large array of digestive specific ailments covered includes pancreatitis, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and much more.
  • Data suggests that proton pump inhibitors, like Nexium, can cause serious long-range side effects.

"Turmeric mixed in a warm glass of water will not only help cleanse your body, but they will also lend support to your digestive system."

Subject: Corn silk and its anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive properties





Corn silk has been used in ancient medicine in the Far East for several thousand years. It has anti inflammatory properties to help reduce swelling in organs as well as soft tissues and muscle. More research in recent years has found that it also has anti cancer properties and has a mild pain reducing effect for abdominal pain associated with gastrointestinal issues, gall bladder symptoms and general colon health.It has also been shown effective in helping to stablize blood sugars in those with diabetes.

Key Takeaways:

  • A study on corn silk published in the journal American Journal of Chinese Medicine has found that it has anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive effects.
  • Corn silk has been used as part of the treatment regimen in traditional medicine and this research shows that it can be used to treat inflammation.
  • The compounds in corn silk extract that the researchers identified was maysin which served as a marker component and was found to inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines.

"Earlier research has shown that corn silk plays a role in some biological activities like diabetes and cancer prevention."

Subject: Oat extract can protect against alcohol-induced liver damage





Eating oats may prevent liver damage caused by drinking, according to research published in the journal Nutrition Research. Indian researchers tested the effects of oat extract on mice with alcohol-induced liver damage. First, they pretreated mice with phenolic-enriched ethyl acetate fraction of oats at two levels every day for 12 days. Next, they induced liver damage in the same mice with doses of 50 percent ethanol every 12 hours. Their results showed that pretreatment with oat extract at higher dosages decreased the levels of liver injury.

Key Takeaways:

  • Oats, which goes by the scientific name Avena sativa, has been found to be effective in preventing alcohol-induced liver damage.
  • A mice model was used in understanding the effects of oats on liver damage but it is stated that the real pathways for this is not well understood.
  • The research team first gave oats extracts to mice for 12 days then they induced liver damage on them and then they measured the alcohol-induced liver injury.

"Research has found an association between consumption of oats and lower risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and gastrointestinal disorders."

Subject: How eating bitter herbs can fix digestive system problems





Gastroesophagael reflux disease (GERD) is a common, vexing and potentially serious condition, but bitter herbs can sometimes help reduce its severity. The “bitters” used by herbalists usually include extracts from a variety of different plants. While plants produce bitter tastes to deter animals (including humans) from eating them, that bitterness can also indicate high concentrations of antioxidants and other compounds with valuable health benefits. Bitters can trigger the digestion-stimulating hormone called gastrin, as well as the release of bile and enzymes that break down protein.

Key Takeaways:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a cause of indigestion and heartburn and affects 15-30 percent of the American population but bitter greens can be used to cure it.
  • For a long time ago natural doctors have been using bitters, which is an assortment of extracts from bitter herbs and spices, to treat various diseases.
  • Bitter herbs that exist in plants were used by those plants as deterrents to insects from eating them but humans think they are equated with poisonous qualities.

"However, appropriate amounts of edible bitter greens, spices and herbs can provide important health benefits, and should be included in the diet."

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."

Subject: Eating cruciferous greens help your immune system fight offintestinal pathogens





The Francis Crick Institute has published new research on the useful properties of cruciferous vegetables in protecting against pathogens that attack your gastrointestinal tract. According to this research, kale, broccoli, and cauliflower can all help reduce your susceptibility to inflammatory bowel diseases. They do this by helping to mitigate the effects of a compound called Cyplal, which can inhibit your body’s ability to use a separate substance called aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR). This is good because when Cyplal interferes with AhR, it can leave you more vulnerable to gut parhogens.

Key Takeaways:

  • A study that used a mouse model to replicate human gastrointestinal diseases found that cruciferous vegetables like kale, broccoli and cauliflower lower the risk of inflammatory bowel disease.
  • What makes cruciferous vegetables important in fighting gut pathogens is because they contain a protein whose role is important in mediating toxicity.
  • The researchers found out that having too much of the protein helping the gut fight bacteria is a bad thing.

"An article in The Francis Crick Institute news page reported that cruciferous vegetables are particularly beneficial when it comes to shielding the intestine from disease-causing microorganisms."

Subject: 7 benefits of glutamine





Glutamine is just one of several free amino acids that are naturally present within the human body, but glutamine just happens to serve a plethora of benefits that most of us aren't even aware of. Glutamine has the ability to improve cognitive function through helping the production of gamma-aminobutyric acid within the brain. It can also boost our immune systems by building the gastrointestinal wall, which could be due to 70% of glutamine being found in the gut.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although all amino acids are important in the body, but the most important is glutamine because it is the most involved in different bodily functions.
  • Some of the health benefits of having sufficient glutamine in the body involves the promotion of weight loss, maintenance of gut wall integrity, and improving the skin.
  • Glutamine prevents a person from having a leaky gut syndrome because it maintains the integrity of the walls of the digestive tract.

"Cancer treatments like radiation and chemotherapy are very intense processes that have repercussions on a person’s health. Studies have shown that taking glutamine effectively reduces the complications that therapy has on metabolism while still preventing tumor growth."

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."

Subject: Sunflower Lecithin: Brain-Boosting Supplement or UnhealthyAdditive?





Sunflower Lecithin might be part of the reason some may view it as a super food: it is a fatty natural additive that improves many foods, boosts many parts of physical health(such as digestive health and brain health) and has many vitamins and minerals in it. It has been used in traditional medicine for a long time and can even be used in a vegan diet(unlike other forms of lecithin). Be careful though: overloading on it can cause digestive distress.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lecithin occurs naturally in your body, and can also be found in egg yolks, soy products, sunflower, meat and other dietary sources
  • Lecithin can bring relief to symptoms of gastrointestinal maladies such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease by supporting the mucus layer in the gut.
  • Lecithin from sunflowers can help boost choline, an important neurotransmitter associated with memory, cognition and learning.

"Commonly used as an emulsifier and emollient in both processed foods and cosmetics alike, sunflower lecithin has also begun gaining traction in the supplement world thanks to its powerful health-promoting properties."

Bifidobacterium Lactis: The Bacterium That Could Help You Lose Weight & Fight Inflammation

The probiotic Bifidobacterium lactis, or B. lactis, is a powerhouse for gut health. Why is this strain of bacteria so important? One study published in 2015 showed that B. lactis could improve unpleasant and painful symptoms associated with poor gut motility, dysbiosis, and GI hypersensitivity. B. lactis is definitely one of the “good guys” of the gut bacteria world because it contributes to a healthy and balanced microbiome, which positively affects balanced blood sugar and optimal weight maintenance.

Key Takeaways:

  • While probiotics are ingested live organisms that are good for gut health, a prebiotic is food that helps these organisms thrive.
  • Bifidobacterium lactis in fermented milk is good for gut health because it improves gastrointestinal symptoms and well-being.
  • Oral health is tied to gut health in intricate ways. Studies with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has shown this truth.

"A particular strain of B. lactis, known as HN019, has been shown to have a significant impact on those with metabolic syndrome. This probiotic had beneficial effects on inflammation, nitric oxide metabolites, and antioxidant measurements, and the authors of the study stated that if their results are confirmed, supplementation with this probiotic should be considered further."

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)

Vitamin B1, which is also known as thiamine, is a vital nutrient when it comes to human nutrition. In fact, Thiamine is a vital nutrient for the human nervous system. Within this capacity, it moderates appetite, prevents memory loss and reduces the possibility of nerve inflammation.

Thiamine has the intrinsic capacity to aid in maintaining energy levels, because its used at the cellular level throughout the body. That said, it stands to reason that a Thiamine deficiency can show itself as a significant lack of endurance and in a tendency to exhaustion. Besides its profound effect on the central nervous system, Thiamine also has a decided effect on the gastrointestinal system. Fortunately, besides supplementing with vitamins, Thiamine is amply available in natural foods. High protein sources include lean pork, fish and dry roasted soybeans. Vegans can get their thiamine on too. Besides soybeans, the nutrient is available in good quantity in wheat bread, asparagus and green peas.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin B1 also helps to regulate appetite and improve memory, besides being of use to the digestive system.
  • Thiamine boosts energy at the cellular level, which is why a severe lack of the nutrient can lead to exhaustion and a lack of endurance.
  • Lean pork, fish, green peas, roasted dry soybeans, wheat bread and cooked asparagus are all good sources of Thiamine.

"Vitamin B1 also called Thiamine, helps in maintaining cellular functions and boosts the functions of the central nervous system."

Science confirms the anti-inflammatory effects of a compound found in dandelions

Inflammation is a natural response that the body exhibits in order to heal the body from pathogens that are present within our system. Dandelion extract contains an important acid that has the ability to activate an important vascular event that triggered the decrease of the surrounding inflammation. The research was performed on animals experiencing high levels of inflammation, and the consumption of dandelion extract showed to directly induce the stimulation of this important vascular activity.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers are looking for alternative anti-inflammatory medicines because current ones can cause gastrointestinal disorder, fluid imbalances and immunodeficiency.
  • Taraxasterol has been identified as the compound in dandelion that contributes to its anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Dandelion is used extensively in folk medicine to treat ailments related to liver, gallbladder, kidneys and joints.

CBD helps relieve anxiety without the high

CBD is being used in a variety of ways. One of the most popular is to treat drug addiction, which means it may be the key to ending the opiod crisis. CBD is being used to treat chronic illnesses as well as for pain management. It contains cannabindiol, but not the THC for the 'head high' but rather a 'body high' that relaxes muscles, relieves inflammation, and has even been credited with relieving gastrointestinal issues.

Key Takeaways:

  • Because cannabidiol (CBD) doesn't contain the psychoactive drug tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) it cannot make changes to the mind of the user.
  • Americans have adopted CBD widely, buying an estimated $100 million worth of CBD products although they do not have clear cut idea of its effects.
  • Dr. Blessing, a New York University (NYU) researcher, affirms that CBD does have an effect on the brain but this is in more medicinal ways.

"New York University (NYU) researcher Dr. Esther Blessing states that CBD shows potential as a means of treating addiction and anxiety. She adds that full clinical trials will be needed to determine its effects."

Benefits of probiotics include relief from symptoms of gastrointestinal problems, but can also extend to other parts of the body, such as helping the body better ingest vitamins and minerals. Maintaining a healthy diet can help make sure the body maintains the necessary probiotics; however, some foods are better for consuming probiotics than others. Foods such as yogurt and miso are some of the best sources of probiotics. As part of a healthy lifestyle, reduce stress, eat healthy, and use antibiotics only when necessary to keep the gut a healthy home for probiotics.

Key Takeaways:

  • Probiotics assist the human gut by creating an acid environment, suitable for the absorption of minerals.
  • They can slow down chronic hypersensitivity to various ingestible items, thereby assisting with autoimmune conditions and regulating inflammation.
  • These helpful strains of bacteria also secrete substances that aid in inhibiting the growth of pathogenic substances in the gut.

"Research has shown that either single-strain or multi-strain probiotic or prebiotic supplements can reduce palpitations, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, lactose intolerance and discomfort."

Australian father treats his daughters' Chron's disease by juicing cannabis... then gets raided by the government

As a parent, what would one not do to prevent a beloved child from suffering? One Australian father chose to break the law. Stephen Taylor is the father of two daughters, both afflicted with a very serious and chronic gastrointestinal disease that routinely causes fatigue, cramping, diarrhea, and even hemorrhaging.

The girls, Ariel and Morgan, had both failed to thrive while under conventional treatment options, even acquiring horrible side effects. So, Taylor took matters into his own hands. He tried and was unable to obtain legal permission to administer medical marijuana to his daughters. So, Taylor placed the girls on a regimen of home-grown cannabis juice on his own. The regimen proved efficacious, with both girls obtaining stellar results. Unfortunately, however, the authorities caught on, impounding the marijuana and charging Taylor.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sufferers of Chron's disease typically experience, abdominal pain, exhaustion, weight loss, cramping, diarrhea and bleeding through the rectum.
  • One Australian father to daughters afflicted with Chron's placed his girls on a regiman of home-grown cannabis juice, with excellent results.
  • Unfortunately, the authorities caught on and impounded the cannabis and charged the father with criminal charges.

"Even though medical marijuana use has been legal in Australia since 2016, it is very difficult to obtain. Though experts estimate that around 100,000 Australians are self-medicating with cannabis for a variety of health problems, only 500 patients have official government authorization to do so."

If you are having chest pains, then it might be one of seven things. Heartburn is one of these things. Muscle strain is another one. It is possible that a person might mistake a muscle strain for something far more serious, like a heart attack. Doctors do not expect any patients to tell the difference between the two.

Key Takeaways:

  • The occasional reflux is fairly common and probably nothing to worry about, but if you're experiencing it twice a week or more, you may have Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
  • 13% to 36% of adults who show up to the ER or doctor's office with acute chest pain are diagnosed with costochondritis, or inflammation where rib bone meets with the cartilage.
  • Respiratory infections are often to blame, though other culprits include autoimmune disorders like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

Whole grains are not only full of vitamins and fibre, but they also contain a substance known as benzoxazinoids or BX. Eating more whole grains rich in BX may help to boost our immune systems, say the scientists.

Key Takeaways:

  • We need certain types of bacteria in our stomachs and intestines to maintain optimum health.
  • Whole grain in our diets helps to increase the "good" bacteria.
  • Men's Fitness has prepared a diet guide to help you shift whole grains into your diet.

"Simply eating whole grains can affect the populations of bacteria living in our Gastrointestinal tract."

Subject: Gut bacteria may hold key to treating autoimmune disease





Inflammation and autoimmunity are caused by inappropriate activity of the body's own regulatory T immune cells. A mutation in a gene called Foxp3 causes a fatal disease, IPEX syndrome, where these cells run amok. But new research shows an unexpected link to the gut: Foxp3 mutant mice end up missing a particular type of bacteria from their intestines. By replacing the missing bacterial species in the gut microbiome, many of the T cell-mediated inflammatory symptoms could be improved.

Key Takeaways:

  • T reg cells suppress the immune system and prevent it from attacking the body's own tissues by mistake.Defects in T reg cells therefore lead to various types of autoimmune disease.
  • This inherited autoimmune disorder is characterized by a variety of inflammatory conditions including eczema, type I diabetes, and severe enteropathy.
  • Autoimmune diseases can also be caused by changes in the gut microbiome, the population of bacteria that reside within the Gastrointestinal tract.

"The study, published online in The Journal of Experimental Medicine, suggests that replacing the missing gut bacteria."

Your liver is one of your body's most metabolically active organs, meaning its energy demands are high. The liver, brain, kidneys and heart together account for about 5 percent of your body weight. Yet, these organs account for 60 percent of the energy your body consumes when you are at rest, according to the book "Principles of Clinical Gastroenterology." To keep you liver functioning efficiently, it needs a good supply of B-complex vitamins to assist it with the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.

Key Takeaways:

  • Your liver is constantly working to filter hundreds of toxins found in your diet and environment. On top of that, your liver also helps to break down your food and provide energy to your other organs.
  • Although vitamin A has several benefits to offer someone with liver disease, it can be toxic to the liver in high dosages.
  • According to researchers from the University of Tennessee in Memphis, more than 90 percent of individuals with chronic liver diseases have some degree of vitamin D deficiency.

"Vitamin A and iron deficiencies are among the most common nutritional deficiencies worldwide, according to a study published in the 2000 issue of Nutrition."

Subject: How nutritious are plant-based milks?





When deciding what type of milk to consume, it is best to read labels. While cow’s milk is fairly standard in the amount of nutrients it contains, plant-based milks can vary greatly depending on which company manufactures it. Unless there is a medical reason to do otherwise, it is recommended that all people consume cow’s milk. Soy, almond, coconut, and other nut milks can be lacking in their nutrients. Soy and nut milks contain a fair amount of protein, but none of the alternatives naturally contain calcium. It can be added, but these usually are not digested as well.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vegans and others may prefer to drink plant-based milks over milk that comes from animals, but a recent study in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition confirmed that young children should drink cow’s milk.
  • An eight-ounce glass of cow’s milk naturally contains about eight grams of protein and almost a third of the recommended percent daily value of calcium.
  • Nutritionally, plant-based milks noted pale in comparison to cow's milk; none contain more than a gram of protein unless fortified.

"An eight-ounce glass of cow’s milk naturally contains about eight grams of protein and almost a third of the recommended percent daily value of calcium. Cow’s milk also naturally contains nutrients like potassium and vitamin B12, and is usually fortified with vitamins A and D."

Support Healthy Circulation and Arterial Function with Benfotiamine!

Subject: Support Healthy Circulation and Arterial Function with Benfotiamine!

Benfotiamine is a derivative nutrient of thiamine (vitamin B1). Usually, many people suffering from peripheral neuropathy lack this crucial nutrient. Thiamine, Vitamin B1, is highly required for the nervous system to keep functioning properly. Maintaining adequate levels of Thiamine through diet alone is hard. Benfotiamine works to nourish the nerves and reverse the effects of peripheral neuropathy. It helps to support blood circulation, enhance arterial function and healthy blood vessels.

Increases blood circulation and vessel health

Benfotiamine helps to increase the rate of blood flow, especially for those patients suffering from low blood circulation. It is also required for the health of the nervous system and is required for the biosynthesis of a number of cell constituents, including certain neurotransmitters. Just like Vitamin B1, Benfotiamine demonstrated itself as a miracle worker when somebody suffering severely from beriberi got on his feet within hours after being injected with the nutrient. Since then, it has been performing the same "miracle" without fail.

Benfotiamine also assists mental health, particularly warding off depression while facilitating memory functions and learning. It's deficiency will no doubt bring back the dreaded beriberi, while minor deficiencies will be manifested in the human body as extreme fatigue, irritability, constipation, edema and an enlarged liver. Forgetfulness, Gastrointestinal disturbances, heart changes, irritability, and breathing difficulties are also common symptoms.

Promotes arterial function

Benfotiamine has been proven to improve the structural integrity of the veins and the entire circulatory system. Usually, people with varicose veins have an increased tendency to develop fibrin deposits in the tissue surrounding the affected veins. This causes the skin to become hard and lumpy. There is a decreased ability to break down fibrin, a compound involved in clot formation, thus an increased risk of the formation of a thrombus which may potentially cause life-threatening complications. Benfotiamine nutrient helps to promote fibrin breakdown hence promote the functioning of the arteries while enhancing the flood of blood.
