    Subject: The Goal is Balance (Body System Balance) and CBD

    Since its discovery in 1992, researchers have been investigating the existence of a central regulatory system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

    The ECS is made of cannabinoid receptors, endogenous (Self-made) cannabis-like compounds and enzymes that create an inactivate them. The ECS is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in establishing and Maintaining human health.

    Phytocannabinoids like CBD, of which well over 100 have been found to exist, are plant derivatives that “talk” to just about every major organ system in the body via the ECS, helping restore normal balance and physiologic homeostasis.

    Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body. In each tissue, cannabinoids perform different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, Maintaining a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.

    So, why is CBD important for the ECS? Because CBD modulates endocannabinoid tone and may help keep healthy people healthy.

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

    Key Takeaways:

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

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

    Subject: 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."

    Subject: Here are 5 tips for a healthy bladder





    A healthy functioning bladder is important because it's the organ that disposes of urinary waste from your kidneys. Pelvic floor exercises, otherwise known as kegels, are a good way to strengthen the bladder muscles. Avoiding constipation is also very important for bladder health. A balanced diet and regular exercise are two ways to prevent constipation, which will relieve strain on the bladder. Good hygiene, especially for women, is another way to maintain a healthy bladder, by preventing UTIs and yeast infections. Finally, adequate water intake to stay hydrated is of critical importance in supporting overall bladder health.

    Key Takeaways:

    • There are a lot of articles about physical health and mental health but bladder health is often ignored because some people find it embarrassing.
    • One should try doing Kegel (pelvic floor) exercises regularly in order to keep the bladder muscles strong and prevent urinary incontinence.
    • Kegel exercises are done every day by squeezing the muscles that one uses to urinate every day for some seconds and then releasing them.

    "It is important to maintain bladder health since this can help prevent different painful, debilitating, or even some life-threatening conditions such as UTIs."

    Subject: For the men: Multivitamins can keep heart disease at bay





    When one gets insufficient nutrients from the diet, taking multivitamins can be a healthy way to improve this. A recent study has shown that men who take multivitamins a lot are less prone to diseases related to the heart such as stroke and even death related to cardiovascular diseases. But how can cardiovascular diseases be prevented using multivitamins? There are few studies in this direction although a lot of studies have been done on the health benefits of multivitamins. That is why a team of researchers in the US embarked on a study of the incidence of multivitamin usage on major cardiovascular diseases like stroke, heart attack, and cardiovascular death. The study was a long term prospective study. The study was conducted between 1982 and 1995 using 18,530 healthy men that were aged from 40 years and above who the researchers followed. The participants reported their lifestyle habits and as well as their intake of certain foods. Throughout the follow up study, there were only 1,697 reported cases of cardiovascular diseases. This made the researchers to conclude that taking multivitamins means a reduced risk to cardiovascular diseases. It is then appropriate for one to choose the right kind of supplements to improve the diet.

    Key Takeaways:

    • When one suspects that he is not getting the full nutrients that his body needs on a daily basis, taking quality multivitamins is necessary.
    • According to a recent study that was done on multivitamins, men who have taken them for a long time have lower risks of stroke and cardiovascular diseases.
    • Many persons know of the important role of multivitamins in improving and maintaining health, but little research has been done on its role on cardiovascular disease.

    "In conducting the study, the research team followed 18,530 healthy men aged 40 years old or over from 1982 to 1995. The participants were initially enrolled from the Physicians’ Health Study I cohort"

    Subject: 5 ways aged garlic can slash your risk of heart disease





    Aged garlic may be remarkably effective at protecting you from heart disease, the number one killer of Americans over the last eight decades. Aged garlic extract can help protect your arteries from low-attenuation (or “soft”) plaque, even if you work in a high-stress field. Aged garlic can also help counter and neutralize the effects of C-Reactive Protein and Interleukin, both associated with the inflammation linked to cardiac disease. Aged garlic can also help prevent harmful blood clots, and may also moderate your blood pressure.

    Key Takeaways:

    • It is estimated that heart disease has maintained it role as the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States for 80 years.
    • There are a lot of studies on garlic, about 900, that show that garlic can be used as a natural treatment for heart disease.
    • A study that involved 55 participants that were between the ages 40 to 75 was used to discover that aged garlic reduced the amount of soft plaque in arteries.

    "However, as unlikely as it sounds, an extract from an everyday kitchen staple – garlic – has the potential to drastically cut your odds of becoming a medical statistic."

    Subject: What is liver cirrhosis? (and is alcohol always the cause of it?)





    Cirrhosis is the advanced scarring of liver tissue. When the liver is injured, it will try repair itself, but this can lead to scarring (a.k.a. fibrosis). Advanced levels of scarring is cirrhosis. Excess drinking is a common cause of liver cirrhosis, but it isn't the only cause. A condition known as Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), actually the most common cause of liver disease in the U.S., can also lead to the disease. People who are overweight are at risk for NAFLD, so maintaining healthy weight is one way to prevent cirrhosis. Avoiding excess alcohol consumption is another. Finally, eating plenty of green leafy vegetables can protect the liver from damage.

    Key Takeaways:

    • One disease that is scary because of its implications is cirrhosis of the liver and it is usually associated with drinking too much alcohol.
    • Some of the factors that can lead to short-term and long-term liver damage include excessive drinking, risky sexual behavior, and injuries like vehicle crashes.
    • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is also a factor in liver cirrhosis and it is estimated that a hundred million Americans have NAFLD.

    "Each time that the liver is injured — whether by disease, excessive alcohol consumption, or fat cells that become toxins — it will try to repair itself."

    "Microbiome" is the term that refers to the good and bad bacteria that resides within your digestive system. When that bacteria is in healthy balance, you have optimal equilibrium in your gut. Prebiotics and probiotics can contribute to this balance, enhancing your overall digestive health. You can get prebiotics and probiotics from both supplements and food. By making an effort to maintain a healthy microbiome, you will reap the benefits of overall immune support, heart health, an improved mood, and regularity in your bowel movements.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Probiotics are healthy bacteria that live inside a person's gut, while prebiotics are the fibers that fuel probiotics.
    • Some examples of prebiotic fibers are lentils, different kinds of beans, and fruits and vegetables.
    • Yogurts, kefir, fermented vegetables, and kombucha are examples of probiotic foods.

    "While all fiber is important to feeling your best every day, only certain fibers are what we call prebiotics."

    According to a recent Harvard University study, the optimal diet for men who want to maintain strong cognitive health consists of eating leafy green vegetables, berries, orange and red vegetables, and orange juice. Researcher Changzheng Yuan studied 28,000 men over the course of 20 years, tracking their dietary habits and periodically testing their cognitive skills. The group that consumed the most vegetables, about six servings per day, performed better on thinking skills tests than the group that ate half that. There was also a positive association found between eating fruits and overall brain health.

    Key Takeaways:

    • One study, centering on cognition, set out to track nearly 3000 men for two decades.
    • All the study participants were human adult, male professionals in the health field.
    • Every participant was questioned about specific food usage upon their entry and at four year intervals thereafter.

    Men and women who suffer from arthritis experience daily joint inflammation, stiffness, and pain, which negatively affects their daily routine. While medication is an important piece of treating arthritis, a balanced diet is also critical for optimal daily living. A healthy diet for someone with arthritis should include many foods with anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger is one food source known to reduce inflammation and have pain relieving effects. It can be consumed in tea or part of a syrup. Turmeric is another very powerful anti-inflammatory that also has tissue protection properties. For best absorption, take turmeric with black pepper. Also, berries, olive oil, and fatty fish are all great additions to a healthy and balanced diet of those with arthritis.

    Key Takeaways:

    • As a disease that is common in men and women, arthritis affects the joints of the body and the joint inflammation can lead to constant pain.
    • The definite cause for the disease is not yet known, but the two types of arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, cause inflammation to the joints.
    • One treatment for arthritis which focuses on reducing inflammation is ginger. Ginger is considered very effective in reducing inflammation at the joints.

    "Apart from medication and treatment people suffering from arthritis need to maintain a balanced diet and also incorporate some physical activities."

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."

    What's The Difference Between Niacin And Niacinamide

    Subject: What's The Difference Between Niacin And Niacinamide

    When it comes to Vitamin B3, not all forms of Niacin are created equally. Aside from the risk of allergens and impurities, there are also separate forms with critical distinctions. The pure form is made solely of nicotinic acid which causes the flushing effect when it is taken by humans. The flushing effect is a redness that starts in the face and expands outwards through the rest of the body. It can make the skin feel warm, dry, and itchy for half an hour. The flushing effect is associated with vascular dilation that helps open up the tiny capillaries and blood vessels to clean out all the toxic junk they may have accumulated.

    Nicotinic Acid Lowers Cholesterol

    Nicotinic acid is also associated with increasing HDL levels in the body to prevent heart disease and plaques from accumulating on the interior walls of arteries. Nicotinic acid is also known to lower the LDL and VLDL bad cholesterols that clog up arteries and lead to heart attacks and strokes.

    Other Benefits of Vitamin B3

    Vitamin B3 plays a critical role in building enzymes that help us carry out over 200 physical functions in the body. It is not produced naturally but is absorbed from foods such as yeast, green vegetables, milk, eggs, legumes, and fish. Aside from cardiovascular health, it plays a critical role in nervous health and sex hormone production.

    How Does Niacinamide Differ?

    Niacinamide is a water-soluble form of Niacin that is used to treat deficiencies or for therapies when patients need to take higher doses regularly to treat pellegra and the deficiencies that lead to it. When an excess of Niacin is built up in the body, your body may store it in this form. The chief distinction between this water-soluable hybrid and nicotinic acid is the effect on cholesterol and vascular dilation. Although flushing can be reduced by taking nicotinic acid daily and building up a tolerance to the effects, it is harder on the liver and more burdensome on the body to metabolize it in the high doses used for therapy of many illnesses: ADHD, Schizophrenia, nervous problems, migraines, and arthritis, among others. It is the preferred choice for Maintaining a consistent and steady level of Vitamin B3 in the body and loaded into many beauty and skin products for women.

    What Other Forms Can I Take?

    You can take any form of the vitamin on a daily basis or supplement it with nicotinic acid when you need some additional flushing effect. You will notice that Niacinamide causes some symptoms of drying and itching that are similar to flushing when you take it in high doses. The no-flush formulation is called inositol hexanicotinate and made up from Vitamins B3 and Inositol Vitamin B8. The inositol acts as an additional buffer that makes inositol hexanicotinate easy to digest and take 1600 mg without side-effects: nausea, itching, flushing, dizziness, gout, liver damage, diabetes. Although multi-vitamin formulas and even fortified foods like breakfast shakes and cereals suggest that you are getting a full dose of B3 in each serving, this is very unlikely. The better choice is to take specifically formulated capsules rather than multivitamins if you are using it for therapeutic reasons.

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.
