Subject: New findings show mushrooms protect brain health





The culinary world loves mushrooms because they have rich flavors but yet they are packed with high amount of nutrition and possess antioxidant and anti-inflammation properties. But new findings show that mushrooms can even provide much more. They have been shown to help in brain health. The research highlighted in this blog shows that when people eat mushrooms they have reduced risk of a mild cognitive impairment that precedes Alzheimer’s disease. The study was conducted in the National University of Singapore and used 600 human subjects who were given various types of mushrooms such as dried mushrooms, white button mushrooms, and golden mushrooms. The researchers found at the end of the study that participants who had consumed mushrooms had reduced cognitive decline especially if they take two or more servings of mushrooms each week as seniors. Other benefits of mushrooms beyond brain health are that it helps prevent cancer, improves the immune function, reduces weight, and is a healthy source of vitamin D.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although mushrooms are loved by those who cook for their rich flavor, it goes beyond that because it is also a nutritional powerhouse.
  • New research shows that mushrooms can boost brain health because it has been understood that eating mushrooms reduces risk of mild cognitive impairment.
  • The study was conducted at the National University of Singapore using about 600 people who were given different types of mushrooms to consume.

"Beyond the new findings that show mushrooms may boost brain health and lower the risk for cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease, mushrooms offer other significant health benefits, too."

Turmeric, a spice used in many Indian dishes, contains a high concentration of a substance called curcumin which possesses medical benefits rivaling many pharmaceuticals. Research suggests that turmeric has the potential to replace cholesterol and steroid medications, chemotherapy drugs, and antidepressants. There is even evidence it can be effective in reversing liver damage. Plant-based treatments are now in the process of revolutionizing modern medicine. In the near future, prescriptions for popular drugs such as Lipitor and Prozac could be replaced with prescriptions for Turmeric.

Key Takeaways:

  • Turmeric shows great health benefits that include fighting inflammation, diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers.
  • One current problem is that many over-the-counter turmeric supplements come from poorly-vetted Chinese suppliers and are contaminated with lead and other metals.
  • Turmeric holds promise as a complement to or replacement for a variety of antidepressants, anti inflammatory drugs, and other pharmaceuticals.

"Without a healthy fat/oil, curcumin may pass right through the body and not be absorbed into the small intestine and into the bloodstream, where it is most effective. Coconut oil, olive oil, and avocado are great to consume along with turmeric. Curcumin absorption is also boosted by piperine, the principle component found in black pepper."

Subject: Why melatonin is a powerful anticancer indolamine





Traditionally, melatonin supplements have been taken to induce a full night's rest, as well as aiding individuals in easing into a deep slumber. Since melatonin is a natural angiogenesis inhibitor, it actually has the ability to reduce the significance of tumors that are located within the body. The process of inhibiting angiogenesis is an essential part of treating cancer patients because it helps target the cells with oxygen. This helps regulate cell migration as well as invasion.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Iranian study which was published looked at the molecular anti-angiogenesis pathways that melatonin uses and the mechanisms that were at play in different forms of cancer.
  • Melatonin is a hormone that the body produces at the pineal gland and from research it has been found that it possesses diverse biological actions, including antitumor.
  • Since the increase of angiogenesis is a definite sign that a tumor is progressing, when melatonin exerts its anticancer effect, it inhibits angiogenesis.

"A team of researchers from Iran suggests that melatonin has powerful anticancer properties."

Additionally, it outlines a few extra benefits of the vitamin and the importance of striking a good bodily balance.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although aging cannot be stopped, but the best thing one can do for himself is to age in the healthiest manner possible.
  • It has been found by researchers in their studies that healthy brain aging can be promoted by consuming omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the right proportion.
  • Because the brain is composed of different complex interconnected parts that age at different rates, some brain structures can deteriorate faster than others.

"The researchers found that people who had higher blood levels of certain omega-3 fatty acids – namely ecosatrienoic acid, stearidonic acid, and ALA – had a bigger frontoparietal cortex and therefore performed better on fluid intelligence tests."

Turmeric, a common spice, contains an active ingredient called curcumin. Recent findings are showing curcumin as being beneficial to patients with heart failure. Curcumin is believed to increase skeletal muscle strength, as well as increasing endurance capabilities to allow more exercise. Similar to ginger, another spice also shown to be beneficial, turmeric contains a high amount of antioxidants. Unfortunately, while curcumin is beneficial to heart failure patients, it simply is not a viable option due to the large amount of curcumin necessary to prove beneficial. That being said, turmeric, ginger, and many other high antioxidant substances are beneficial to humans, especially those with heart failure.

Key Takeaways:

  • Heart failure is life altering, because by weakening the heart and affecting its oxygen pumping ability, patients no longer have the ability to participate in activities they once enjoyed.
  • Despite being chronic and incurable, heart failure patients can, by using a change in lifestyle, decrease feelings of fatigue and enhance their mood so as to resume their lives.
  • The study that showed that curcumin from turmeric can help people with heart failure was done using mice although hopefully it can be done on humans.

"For those who appreciate the unique spiciness of turmeric, it’s serendipitous to learn there are several layers of extraordinary health benefits included with the active ingredient known as curcumin."

Subject: Consuming Cannabis Could Slash Your Chances Of Blood Clots, Stroke: Study





As possession of cannabis slowly starts to become legal, it is important to be aware of the possible effects in those who use the drug. Recent studies have revealed that cannabis may actually contribute to health by potentially decreasing the likelihood of stroke and contribute to brain activity. In a study involving 175 volunteers, researchers observed that cannabis users had an increased systemic flow of blood and oxygen, including within the brain, specifically around the forebrain, related to learning. In addition, head researcher, Dr. Francesca Filbey, states that the primary ingredient in cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which dilates blood vessels, causing a drop in blood pressure, and increasing blood flow.

Key Takeaways:

  • Smoking or eating marijuana (cannabis) can reduce the likelihood of having a stroke because oxygen and blood flow are improved.
  • Studies in the past focused more on cognitive and psychological effects of marijuana. Now researchers are also paying attention to physical effects.
  • Blood flow in the part of the brain that affects learning is increased when marijuana is used.

Most plants that are used are grown in outdated environments and conditions. In states where the plant is legal, it can't be used for research purposes. The product must be the sub-standard, government issued plants. People who could benefit from this research, should pay attention to, and follow-up on this report.

Subject: Can Chitosan Really Absorb Fat?

What is a chitosan

crustaceansChitosan is a naturally produced supplement that is recommended by nutrition experts and doctors as a great remedy for weight loss and high cholesterol, which results in a lower risk to develop bothersome cardiovascular problems and facilitates a better looking physique. Chitosan is made from the outer shell of crustaceans, such as shrimp or lobster. The outer shell is processed and a special form of "sugar", also known as a polysaccharide, is obtained. Unlike other types of artificially created sugars, Chitosan Possesses unique properties that make it a great addition to a healthy diet for individuals who want to manage their weight and prevent obesity.

How Does Chitosan Work to Facilitate Weight Loss?

Several research studies conducted by nutrition experts and medical professionals specializing in the treatment of obesity reveal the surprising properties of Chitosan in terms of its ability to influence the absorption of fat in the stomach and intestines. Once ingested, Chitosan works in the digestive system by binding excessive fat and making it more difficult to achieve fat absorption. In other words, it limits fat absorption by blocking free fat available for absorption and eliminating it as waste from the human body. Naturally, if fat absorption is limited in this manner, the caloric intake is dramatically diminished, which obviously results in weight loss and a better looking physique.

Chitosan has the Capacity to Bind and Remove Cholesterol

Fat retention and removal achieved by Chitosan after meals is a great feature of this natural supplement that inevitably results in a healthy and progressive weight loss. However, the benefits of Chitosan are also reflected in its positive influence on the cardiovascular health. The fat ingested through meals contains harmful cholesterol, which can accumulate in the blood vessels causing blockages of the blood flow and a higher risk for dangerous cardiovascular problems like strokes or heart attacks. Chitosan traps the excessive cholesterol delivered in the digestive system through daily meals, which results in less cholesterol being circulated in the bloodstream, and an improved blood flow to the brain and heart.
