Subject: Study shows that vitamin D can help lower your risk of Type 2diabetes





Many people are frightened by the prospect of type 2 diabetes given all the risks that it comes with which include regular finger pricks for tests, and a host of complications for diseases like kidney and liver damage, and a higher risk of having stroke or heart disease. Preventing type 2 diabetes is then essential and recent studies have shown that vitamin D can help in that regard. The researchers already knew that vitamin D can help with insulin sensitivity and pancrease beta cells function so they wanted to find out the link between vitamin D and blood glucose levels. 680 women between the ages of 35 and 74 were experimented upon and they were given vitamin D supplementation and exposure to sunlight. They found a negative association between vitamin D and blood glucose level meaning that vitamin D, especially being exposed to sunlight, reduced the levels of glucose in the blood. They also found that vitamin D deficiency was associated with a high level of glucose in the blood. This present study was found to correlate with other studies between vitamin D presence in the body and glucose levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • Having type 2 diabetes is a frightening prospect because the condition entails a lot of complications like regular finger pricks for tests.
  • Since they already know that vitamin D can help one with insulin sensitivity and the function of pancreatic beta cells, the researchers wanted to find out the link.
  • 680 women were studied and they found that those who had high levels of vitamin D due to sunlight and supplementation had lower levels of blood glucose.

"Specifically, those who had high levels of vitamin D enjoyed a 55 percent lower chance of developing type 2 diabetes, a 51 percent lower change of metabolic syndrome, and a 33 percent lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease."

Subject: Study identifies a natural preservative in the arjun tree





Terminalia arjuna has been studied closely by researchers from India and New Zealand. Commonly known as the arjun tree, this plant was used on chevon sausages to test the properties of preservation. The study suggest that the it produced significantly lower values for total plate count, psychrophilic count, yeast and mold count, and free fatty acid values. The results showed an improved lipid oxidative stability and storage quality while refrigerated, thus suggesting that the arjun tree can be a novel natural meat preservative.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chevon sausages were used as a model in the research and the researchers used various sorts of Terminalia arjuna extracts some in 0.25, 0.50, and 0.75 percent.
  • When the extracts were examined under refrigerated conditions, they looked at the effects on lipid oxidative stability and storage quality parameters.
  • There were lower values in total that were noted during the study for total plate count, psychrophilic count, counts of yeast and mold, and free fatty acid values.

"Researchers from India and New Zealand explore the potential of Terminalia arjuna as a novel natural preservative in meat products."

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."

4 reasons you should eat more mushrooms

Subject: 4 reasons you should eat more mushrooms





Mushrooms are a nutritious food with many health benefits. Mushrooms can provide one of the few completely vegan foods with lots of vitamin D, although that is only if they’re exposed to sunlight and not grown in the dark. They’ve got tons of fiber, and are also full of niacin, phosphorus and other minerals. Evidence to support claims that mushrooms help prevent specific diseases is weak, but what is definitely clear is that sautéed mushrooms are delicious, and there’s no reason not to eat them.

Key Takeaways:

  • People revere magical mushrooms, but all mushrooms have amazing abilities that helps the body when it comes to healthy living and healing abilities.
  • Vitamin D supplements apart from that from sunshine only come from animals such as fatty fishes and dairy products fortified with the vitamin.
  • It is known that the amazing mushroom produces vitamin D abundantly such that a 100-gram serving can give one about 50 to 100 percent of the daily dose.

"You only need 10 to 15 minutes of sunshine three times a week to get your necessary dose of vitamin D, but if you’re still running low you can supplement with food sources."

Subject: The key nutrients needed to prevent heart attacks, strokes andheart failure





The CDC assesses that more than 5,100,000 Americans have some variant of heart disease, and that 610,000 will die from it this year alone. While the conventional range of treatments mostly relies on medications, micronutrient-based Cellular Medicine provides an alternative. Cellular Medicine pioneer Dr. Matthias Rath has carried out some very promising clinical research involving micronutrient supplementation. Dr. Rath believes that the American diet, medication side effects and modern food handling and production practices mean that many people are deprived of a range of important micronutrients, with very bad consequences for heart health.

Key Takeaways:

  • A physician named Dr. Rath views heart disease as an early form of scurvy, which results from a Vitamin C deficiency.
  • If your body does not have enough Vitamin C, cracks can form in your arterial walls and your body tries to repair them with artery-clogging plaque.
  • In addition to Vitamin C, people at risk for heart disease should also consume more Vitamin E and B-complex vitamins.

"With the odds of surviving past the five-year mark currently standing at 50 percent, it’s clear that more effective prevention and treatment options are needed."

Subject: Common vitamins linked to a lower risk of pancreatic cancer





While pancreatic cancer is a terribly dangerous disease, a vitamin supplement regime may be able to mitigate some of the risk of developing it. A Chinese study that looked at health data from over 1.2 million people discovered a clear correlation between higher intake of vitamins and lower risk of pancreatic cancer. Specifically, the researchers believe that the vitamins, through a variety of different mechanisms, induce apoptosis in cancer cells. This demonstrates that a healthy diet combined with supplements can greatly reduce your cancer risk.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nearly 40 percent of Americans are expected to have cancer in their lifetime but there is some good news on the natural home front.
  • The good news is that taking vitamins can reduce the risk to pancreatic cancer which accounts for about seven percent of all cancer diagnosis.
  • Ying Liu and his colleagues conducted the research on cancer and vitamins, and it involved about 1,214,995 subjects with pancreatic cancer being about 8,740.

"Fortunately, there are lifestyle changes that can dramatically reduce the risk of falling victim to pancreatic cancer, including a vitamin (and mineral) regimen."

Author: Darrell Miller (support@vitanetonline.com)
Subject: Vitamin E Alert: Researchers discover surprising reason why you maybe deficient in this critical antioxidant





It turns out that a lack of vitamin C in your diet can severely inhibit your body’s ability to absorb and use vitamin E. Vitamin E is important to a variety of cellular functions, as well as preventing heart disease and preventing arteries from becoming stiff and hard. The vast majority of Americans don’t eat enough vitamin E, and the situation is made worse by inadequate vitamin C consumption, since vitamin C protects and complements vitamin E. Good sources of these vitamins include kale, apples, carrots and walnuts, as well as supplements.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin E deficiency might be uncommon because it is estimated to affect only 0.1 percent of the population but that is still substantial when one does the maths.
  • There is another twist to the Vitamin E deficiency puzzle because it has been found that Vitamin C can affect the body’s ability to absorb Vitamin E.
  • Vitamin E boasts a lot of health benefits for people who take it in their diets including fighting off inflammation and reducing the risk of heart disease.

"Plus, even if clinically-definable deficiencies are uncommon, too many people are still missing out on the key health benefits of vitamin E because they get insufficient amounts of it in their diet."

Subject: Cooking with the "stinking rose": The 7 health benefits of garlic





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: Vitamin K2 promotes healthy arteries and cardiovascular protection





Vitamin K2 may help protect you against becoming one of the 17 million people estimated to die from heart disease this year. Vitamin K2 helps to moderate how much calcium builds up in the body and where. This is significant because the calcification of plaque-narrowed arteries plays a major role in heart disease. Vitamin K2 can help ensure that your body’s calcium supply stays in your bones and out of your arteries and other soft tissue, and can reduce your risk of heart disease by 50 percent or more.

Key Takeaways:

  • The number one cause of death and illness worldwide is attributed to heart disease and it is estimated to cause about 17 million deaths each year.
  • Artherosclerosis, or the accumulation of calcified deposits in the arteries, has been known by researchers to be a major cause of heart disease.
  • Vitamin K is essential for blood clotting and the maintenance of bone density. It is found in two forms in the body – Vitamin K1, and Vitamin K2.

"In one study, daily consumption of more than 32 micrograms of dietary vitamin K2 reduced the risk of arterial calcification and death from heart disease – by an incredible 50 percent."

Subject: Researchers find that consuming blended protein supplements canimprove energy malnutrition, muscle mass in leukemia patients





Because cancer can quickly accelerate the deterioration of a person’s body, some researchers in China wanted to find out how soy-whey protein blend can help patients with leukemia by considering its effects on protein energy absorption and muscle mass. This is because leukemia patients often experience a decrease in muscle mass and severe protein-energy malnutrition (PEM). Earlier studies have shown that soy-whey protein can promote muscle protein synthesis, so the present researchers wanted to know if it can help leukemia patients before they undergo bone marrow transplant. The patients used in the study were 24 in number and they were divided into two groups. One group took natural diet with soy-whey blended protein (BP) while the second group only took natural diet. From the data it was observed that there was a decrease in protein and energy intake of all the 24 participants. But in the group without the soy-whey diet, there was a significant decrease in muscle-related indicators in half of the patients while 60 percent of the patients who ingested the soy-whey blend protein had muscle mass increase in the arm area.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers in China who investigated the effects of leukemia on patients wanted to know how ingesting soy-whey protein can blend in with protein-energy absorption and muscle mass.
  • The researchers used about 24 patients to test their hypothesis that soy-whey protein can aid leukemia patients and they also used a natural diet only (ND) group.
  • From all the patients about 68 percent who ingested the soy-whey protein before transplantation showed increased improvements in the arm muscle area.

"In the ND group without the BP intervention, the researchers observed a significant reduction in muscle-related indicators (i.e., anthropometric variables, muscle strength and serum protein) in more than 50 percent of the patients."

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."

Cirrhosis and liver cancer are common diseases that can be easily prevented. There are many ways to reduce the chance of developing these diseases over the course of a lifetime, such as moderate physical activity. Resistance training in particular can help to alleviate symptoms and reduce the likelihood of developing these diseases because it can lower fat levels. Exercise can also lower cholesterol and help manage weight. To sum, healthy lifestyle choices and changes can reduce the risk of cancer associated with the liver and cirrhosis, which will ultimately lead to a positive and healthy life.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is estimated to affect about thirty percent of Americans which translates to about a hundred million Americans.
  • Recent research from the University of Liverpool, UK, has shown that physical exercise, particularly resistance training, can reduce the risk of having liver cancer.
  • The liver is an important organ in the body that is involved in a lot of detoxification and it was shown that exercising was more beneficial for obese people.

"At the end of the study period, both liver fat and cholesterol levels were significantly lower."

Subject: Probiotics shown to protect against liver damage, study reveals





Fatty Liver Disease is becoming a real issue and may impact up to 1/4th of the United States population. Thankfully there appear to be means of combating this disease. Probiotics have already contributed in reducing acetaminophen-caused liver disease particularly with lowering of the oxidative stress. Positive gut health and bacteria is also important in maintaining a healthy immune system and can contribute to further protecting the body against Fatty Liver Disease. Eating the right foods, including fermented varieties, helps promote good gut health.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is affecting a lot of people in the US and the number is increasing. Experts put its number at 25 percent of the population.
  • When NAFLD is left untreated for a long time, it can develop into more serious problems such as liver inflammation, scarring, cirrhosis, liver failure, and then liver cancer.
  • Now it has been discovered that gut bacteria has a good effect on liver health and probiotics can be used to halt liver disease.

"The team found that the supplemented mice experienced significantly less liver damage than the control group."

Fatty liver disease is something that many people struggle with and fear in their lifetimes. Because it is nonalcoholic, it is difficult to rationalize having the disease as it is not intentionally done. Many professionals have attempted to lessen the ability to get the disease, and there is a medication that helps to put a stop to the disease. The medicine is called CoQ10 and it is very effective at halting inflammation in and around the liver.

Key Takeaways:

  • One powerful antioxidant that the body produces naturally is CoQ10 and the problem is that it gets depeleted thereby contributing to liver disease.
  • CoQ10 has been shown to reverse the effects of nonalchoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) which is due to the accumulation of fats in the liver.
  • Nonalcholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a big problem in America because 30 percent of adult Americans have it and they have no idea it’s happening to them.

"Those receiving the CoQ10 supplement showed better markers overall after the study period was completed as compared with the placebo group."

Subject: Exploring the fatty acids that REDUCE your risk of premature death





According to six separate studies published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the regular consumption of fatty acids substantially decreases the risk of premature death in adults. When the fatty acids are derived specifically from fish oil, the risk of death from any cause is reduced by 14 percent, compared to low or no consumption. Specifically, the risk of dying from a cardiac event is reduced by a whopping 47 percent. Unfortunately, because these studies don't appear in medical journals, most doctors do not advise their patients to take fish oil. There is also evidence that suggests fish oil decreases the risk of stroke and has potent anti-inflammatory properties. A word of caution, if you are on blood-thinners, consult with an integrative physician before taking fish oils regularly.

Key Takeaways:

  • The author asserts that the sugar industry is behind the myth that fats is a bad thing for the health while processed sugar is more dangerous.
  • Heart attacks kills millions of people every year but the true story is that premature death is a result of people not being informed about the benefits of fats.
  • A 2017 study that studied the relationship between fish oil that has fatty acids to mortality showed that it produced a 14 percent reduction in risk to death.

"In one study, fish oil was associated with better survival rates in heart attack victims, with researchers finding improved heart function and lower levels of inflammatory markers in people who took high-dose fish oil for six months after suffering a heart attack."

Subject: Pomegranate can prevent the growth and spread of four common typesof cancer cells





There is a protective enzyme within pomegranate that is known scientifically as paraoxonase-1 (PON-1), and it has the ability to block oxidative stress that promote DNA mutations. These DNA mutations are often what lead to a cancer diagnosis. More research determined that not only does pomegranate help block gene mutations, but it can also stop the replication cycle of cancer cells in which they grow at alarming rates. Not only can it help disrupt this cycle, but it can also kill some cells altogether.

Key Takeaways:

  • The US centers of disease control states that the incidence of cancer is expected to go up by about 24 percent in men and 21 percent in women.
  • There is now the need for more novel and more proactive methods of treating cancer, based on the grim statistics, and pomegranate is one of those promises.
  • Pomegranate benefits does not lie only in the fact that it contains antioxidant polyphenols for combating oxidative stress but also has multiple actions against cancer cells.

"In one study, a cup of day of pomegranate juice lowered inflammatory markers – such as C-reactive protein and interleukin-6 – in diabetic patients."

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."

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.

"In this study, the researchers wanted to determine if catechins were beneficial for reducing abdominal fat and improving metabolic syndrome."

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."

Cannabis is routinely used for palliative care in Israel, and Israeli researchers did a study of over 2900 late-stage cancer patients treated with medical cannabis between 2015 and 2017 to evaluate how effective it was as a treatment. Most of the patients complained of sleep disturbances, very severe pain, nausea and weakness. The researchers found that 96 percent of the patients treated with the medical cannabis reported improvements in their symptoms, leading the scientists to conclude that medical cannabis is effective and safe for palliative care.

Key Takeaways:

  • Now counting and increasing, there are now about 34 countries, with an equal number of states in the US who have approved the use of cannabis for treating diseases.
  • Although at the federal level the US has not approved the use of cannabis, but as more and more studies come out, hopefully, that will be the situation.
  • Cancer is a leading cause of death in Israel and palliative care is recommended for cancer patients. The Israeli ministry of health has approved cannabis for palliative care.

"They sorted out which types of cancer the patients had, what main symptoms that required therapy were and how severe the pain was for the patients. Then they evaluated the safety and efficacy of this therapy."

Key Takeaways:

  • 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.

Many people who are concerned in general terms about obesity still have gaps in their knowledge regarding several specific health consequences, according to the Cleveland Clinic Heart Health Survey. The survey indicated that, while most people understand that obesity is bad for cardiac health, they may not appreciate the role of triglycerides or different types of cholesterol. Likewise, relatively few respondents have made major dietary changes to try to lose weight, and my people appear not to understand that even relatively modest weight loss can have significant health benefits.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although many adults are concerned about having excess weight, they fail to make the connection between excess weight and the risk of developing chronic diseases.
  • According to a cardiologist expert, Luke Laffin, MD, it was surprising from a survey that only 22 percent of respondent had ever talked to their doctor about excess weight.
  • Individuals who have hypothyroidism even before the condition is diagnosed have been observed to have the tendency for excess weight gain.

"Carrying excess weight worsens glucose tolerance and also increases the risk of developing certain cancers."

A recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition analyzed the diets of more than 2,000 men. It specifically sought to find a correlation between protein sources and diabetes. It found that, in general, men with a higher intake of protein from plants were less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. Conversely, men who got most of their protein from processed or unprocessed meats were more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. Several other studies from Harvard have reached parallel conclusions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers from the University of Eastern Finland looked at the dietary habits of 2000 men to try to learn the impact of protein sources on heart health.
  • Plant-based diets are associated with significant drops in the risk of Type 2 diabetes, even when subjects also are less healthy foods as well.
  • One serving of red meat per day is enough to substantially raise the risk of type 2 diabetes relative to non-meat eaters.

The Keto diet is well-known for emphasizing the value of healthy fats, but that doesn't mean it neglects the importance of fiber. It is not uncommon for those transitioning to the low-carb, high fat Keto diet to experience problems with digestion. The solution is to consume high fiber foods that keep you in a state of ketosis. These include non-starchy vegetables (e.g., cabbage and asparagus) as well as seeds and nuts. Keto fiber supplements - such as Gum arabic and Chia seeds - can also serve to maintain digestive regularity.

Key Takeaways:

  • Avocado is full of both healthy fats and dietary fiber, making it a valuable staple for people on keto diets.
  • Non-starchy vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and zucchini can provide lots of fiber, vitamins and antioxidants.
  • When eaten in moderation, high-fiber nuts like pistachios, walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts can provide fiber and nutrients and help digestion.

Vitamin deficiencies are running rampant around the world, impacting a substantial amount of individuals. Over 70% of Malaysian women in urban areas tested positive for a vitamin D deficiency, specifically. The reason so many Malaysian women are prone to vitamin D deficiencies is because they have darker pigmentation, and they are heavily restricted in many forms of clothing. The lack of sunlight exposure due to these characteristics is what potentially contributes to an increase in levels of depression.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is widely known that Vitamin D is linked to calcium and bone growth, but the deficiency has also been linked to depression among Malaysian women.
  • Vitamin D is gotten by the body through skin synthesis when exposed to the sun but these women are deficient through darker skin pigmentation and religious clothing styles.
  • Some of the signs one can perceive when a person is deficient in Vitamin D are back or bone pain, getting sick or infected oftener, and hair loss.

Exactly 473 men and 475 women have been studied in order to see if high levels of vitamin C can help lower the risk of facing a premature death. Although several people did meet an early demise due to heart disease and other common ailments, it was shown that the individuals who were in the top 25 percentile when it comes to their vitamin C levels had a much lower risk in reaching an early death.

Key Takeaways:

  • A 16-year study of almost 1000 Chinese men and women found that those with the highest Vitamin C plasma concentrations were less likely to have died of any cause during the study.
  • Vitamin C’s benefits probably result from its ability to suppress oxidative stress and the resulting inflammation.
  • Kiwis, papayas, chili peppers, red bell peppers, mangos, kale and pineapple are all rich sources of Vitamin C.

"Proper nutrition can be incredibly powerful when it comes to preventing disease and protecting your health, so take a look at your typical diet and try to find new ways to incorporate vitamin C-rich foods to give your longevity a boost."

Subject: Is magnesium the secret to ending PMS? Vitamin eases headaches andcramps





The vast majority of women will suffer from common PMS symptoms like cramps, insomnia, headaches, anxiety and mood swings. Roughly five percent of women will suffer more serious symptoms — known as premenstrual dysphoric disorder — involving anger and depression. However, studies suggest that women who take a daily magnesium supplement suffer from less severe PMS symptoms, possibly because magnesium helps promote higher levels of gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter which helps regulate sleep. Women who experience exhaustion as a central PMS symptom are particularly likely to need more magnesium.

Key Takeaways:

  • Seventy-five percent of women suffer from PMS at some point during their life.
  • Magnesium research suggests that it can help with restful nights sleep, reduce the symptoms of pain and tiredness, as well as migraines and mood swings.
  • Research suggests that individuals who received a magnesium supplement saw improvement with PMS symptoms and lowered depression and anxiety.

"According to PubMed Health, during this time, some women feel a wide range of physical discomforts, such as abdominal pain, abdominal cramping, backache, headaches, bloating, weight gain, breast tenderness, possible sleeping issues and digestive discomfort."

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."

Oxidative neurodegeneration is a process in which oxidative stress results in degeneration of the brain, often related to a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Studies are now showing that curcumin has protective abilities that can help decrease the brain's vulnerability to further injury as a result of oxidative stress. This could be due to several factors such as its anti-inflammatory properties, the way it increases antioxidants, and its natural healing properties that can aid in regeneration.

Key Takeaways:

  • Shockingly, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) affects several people in America. It is reported that they are sustained by about 2.8 million Americans every year.
  • It has been calculated that traumatic brain injury, TBI, is a cause of all injury-related deaths in America by about 30 Percent.
  • Treatment for TBI which can include anything sufficient strong to cause brain injury to the head can include pain relief for mild cases, and ensuring adequate brain oxygen.

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.

Higher omega-3s status linked to less depression in population with heart failure

A recent American College of Cardiology study of 108 chronic heart failure patients noted that patients with higher omega-3 index levels as a result of oral supplementation appear to suffer less from depression than the control group. Roughly 20 percent of chronic heart failure patients become clinically depressed. The promising results suggest that increased omega-3 index levels may result in better social functioning and reduced cognitive symptoms of depression as measured by the widely-used Hamilton Depression Scale. More research is needed, however, to better understand the impact of omega-3 indexes on depression.

Key Takeaways:

  • A recent American College of Cardiology study of depression symptoms in 108 chronic heart failure patients compared two omega-3 profile-boosting treatments to a placebo.
  • As measured by the Hamilton Depression Scale, patients with higher omega-3 indices had better social functioning and fewer cognitive impacts.
  • Around 20 percent of chronic heart failure patients get depression symptoms, so this issue certainly merits further research.

"A recent pilot study has linked a higher Omega 3 Index with lessened symptoms of depression in a cohort of subjects suffering from chronic heart failure."
