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: 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: 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.

Subject: How does poor gut health affect vitamin C and E in metabolicsyndrome? - Medical News Bulletin





Metabolic syndrome involves a combination of at least three out of five conditions — hypertension, abdominal obesity, low “good cholesterol,” and excessively high fasting blood glucose and serum triglyceride scores. Metabolic syndrome is a major public health concern, given that more than a third of American adults have it. Recent studies suggest that eating too much saturated fat can imbalance the bacteria in the gut. This results over time in oxidative stress and inflammation that can deplete the body’s stockpiles of vitamins C and E, and also make it harder to absorb more vitamin C from food to replace what has been used up. Vitamins C and E play an important role in protecting against oxidative stress.

Key Takeaways:

  • Metabolic syndrome can lead to heart disease, type 2 diabetes and other serious conditions.
  • The American Heart association defines metabolic syndrome as abdominal obesity, raised serum triglycerides, low HDL, high blood pressure or raised fasting blood glucose.
  • Vitamin C and E are vital to the body's immune system and work to prevent metabolic syndrome through regular consumption of fruits and vegetables.

"Around 35% of the American adult population has metabolic syndrome, with a higher prevalence in older age groups."

Subject: Here's what research shows about the mental health benefits ofginger





Taking in a consistent amount of ginger throughout the week is showing to have several positive benefits in terms of both physical and mental health. Not only can ginger help patients who deal with chronic pain such as arthritic discomfort by treating inflammation, but it can also help improve cognitive function as well. Our brains are continuously faced with pollutants found in the air and food we consume, which can directly decrease our brain's functionality. The dopamine levels replaced by ginger can help aid in protecting our brains from these potential threats.

Key Takeaways:

  • Ginger can be used to boost mental health and also treat mental illnesses such as memory loss and dementia, along with treating arthritis.
  • Ginger, which scientific name is Zingiber officinale, is taken from a rhizome or root of a flowering plant that is natively grown in China.
  • As of today, research has been able to identify about 100 compounds in ginger, of which more than 50 of these compounds are antioxidants.

"Ginger is often used as an anti-inflammatory, making it a popular natural remedy for arthritis. The plant’s anti-inflammatory property can also help people with brain disorders like ADHD, Alzheimer’s, anxiety, brain fog, and depression, which are often associated with chronic inflammation of the brain."

Subject: Science confirms turmeric as effective as 14 drugs





If you haven’t yet heard, turmeric is the latest super herb that is as effective as at least 14 drugs and is safe to consume in food, as a tea, or in supplement form. A 2008 study in Drugs found that turmeric worked just as well as Lipitor in decreasing blood levels of cholesterol. Another study in Phytotherapy Research found turmeric to be as effective as steroids in the treatment of chronic inflammatory eye disease. Studies conducted over the past twenty years also show turmeric to be a promising alternative to aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and tamoxifen for its anti-inflammatory and tumor suppressing properties.

Key Takeaways:

  • Curcuminoids from turmeric have been found to compare on equal terms with the pharmaceutical drug, Lipitor, which is used to treat endothelial dysfunction.
  • In the management of chronic anterior uveitis which is an inflammatory eye disease, curcumin from turmeric was found to be as effective as steroids.
  • Curcumin in turmin has also been found to be comparable in function to other steroids such as dexamethasone in protecting lung transplantation-associated injury.

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."

Autoimmune disorders are caused when the immune system lacks on its main purpose and attacks itself. Many people struggle to find a way to get their immune systems. Studies have shown that homeopathy could shed some hope for people with immune disorders. When a homeopath looks at their patients, they want to know one's symptoms, pains, or sensations that they feel. They treat people as a whole, not one problem at a time, using this way of treatment is actually natural and less harmful than other options.

Key Takeaways:

  • The immune system is human's natural way of protecting itself against toxins and diseases.
  • Some people are more prone to getting sick because of the lifestyles that they live.
  • Homeopathy is about treating each person in a unique manner and not just focusing on the symptoms.

First discovered in 1912, Vitamin C is a crucial nutrient that plays roles in immunity, tissue repair, synthesis of vital neurotransmitters and protection of the body from free radicals as an antioxidant. Cancer Research recently published a new Phase 1 human trial which suggests that adding intravenous Vitamin C to traditional chemotherapy can significantly increase survival rates. This may be related to Vitamin C’s potential benefits in protecting against the stres that chemotherapy drugs put on the body.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin C has lots of benefits. It was discovered in 1912 and has become the first vitamin that was synthesized in the laboratory.
  • Vitamin C is essential for the repair of tissue damage, the production of specific neurotransmitters, and it aids white blood cells to kill bacteria and other invaders.
  • Intravenous use of Vitamin C in traditional medicine is long known in traditional medicine. What is worrisome about it is its high antioxidant activity.

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."

Diabetes is a serious and chronic condition, which as it progresses can wreak havoc on an array of bodily systems. One potential victim of the havoc is the kidneys. They endure a great deal of oxidative stress in a body that is constantly fighting the effects of diabetes. This ongoing stress overtime does damage the kidneys and can eventually destroy them The condition of oxidative stress endured by kidneys functioning under an ongoing onslaught of diabetic effects is known as diabetic nephropathy. In a worse case scenario it can lead to total renal failure. The organic tuber, Indian Kudzu, is an Aryuvedic medicine staple, besides housing a wealth of antioxidants. Researchers from a Banaras Hindu University recently decided see whether the oxidative power of Indian Kudzu might be able to stand tall against the stress endured by kidneys undergoing diabetic onslaught, thereby protecting them from the ravages of the stress. The study, which used rodent subjects, proved that though oxidative stress in the diabetic rodent subjects was high, the kudzu was able to reduce or reverse some of the damage, due in part to its ability to improve human antioxidant enzyme activity.

Key Takeaways:

  • Diabetes can have many negative effects, including diabetic nephropathy, which can damage and even destroy the kidneys.
  • The condition is caused by oxidative stress, a state that regular consumption of the Indian Kudzu can help slow down and block, making it an effective adjunct to hypertension protocols.
  • The premise that the Kudzu would prove protective was upheld in a study done at A Banaras Hindu University that made use of rodent subjects.

"The tubers are a treasure trove of antioxidants that reduce the effects of oxidative stress and reactive oxygen species related to aging and various ailments."

Subject: 7 Vitamins for Healthy and glowing Skin and Beauty





While we likely grew up with mom or dad telling us to "take your vitamins" everyday, the vitamins we took can actually be found in the food we normally eat. There are 13 essential vitamins that our bodies need for that healthy glow. However, what are vitamins, and why do we need them anyway?

Vitamin A happens to be great for skin issues such as acne, preventing wrinkles and relieving psoriasis.

Vitamin B-2 helps your skin stay in a balanced state, niether too dry nor too oily, and does the same to keep chapped lips at bay as well.

Vitamin C is all about keeping your immune system healthy. Enough of this vitamin will help cuts and bruises heal much faster than if you were lacking.

Vitamin B6 has the job of helping your skin repair itself--replacing damaged cells with healthy new ones, and is essential to keep rashes and dermatits away.

Vitamin B5 is similar to B6 but you'll need both to keep your skin fresh and young. It happens to be an important ingredient in making healthy skin cells.

Vitamin E is a bit of a do-it-all vitamin, and works with all the others to keep skin moisturized as well as slow the process of aging (and can even combat stretch marks).

Lastly there is Niacin, which is great for fighting against canker sores and repairs damaged skin while also protecting the skin.

Key Takeaways:

  • Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins and should be eaten consistently
  • There are many different types of vitamins and all of them are important in order to healthy
  • Vitamins are not produced naturally by the body and must be obtained either through food or nutritional supplements

"Vitamin A is responsible for maintaining and repairing skin tissues."

Okra is a versatile plant that can provide both nutritional as well as health benefits. In terms of cooking, Okra can be prepared to your preference through roasting, boiling, frying or stewing. It can also be steamed to extract a gooey substance that can then be further utilized as a thickener in other recipes.

But Okra also has numerous health benefits as well. It is effective at filtering your blood, aiding in the treatment of kidney deisease. It acts as an antioxidant and is particularly useful in protecting you from liver diseases. It also helps regulate blood sugar levels leading to the belief that it is a viable alternative treatment for those affected by diabetes. It also has been shown to be an effective alternative for treating depression.

But perhaps the most exciting application is the possibility it presents in the treatment of breast cancer. This is currently being studied, but so far it seems that extracts gathered from Okra have shown promise in reducing the growth rate of cancer cells, and in eradicating some existing cancer cells. So this is an exciting development that bears further investigation.

Given the vast list of proven and potential benefits previously listed, Okra seems to be a vegetable that we should all be giving serious consideration to adding to our diets.

Key Takeaways:

  • Okra helps to filter blood and create cleaner blood in the body.
  • Okra is an antioxidant so it helps to keep the body away from diseases such as liver disease.
  • Okra helps to fight depression because it is an antidepressant and can help to increase endorphins.

Subject: Study: Single Dose Of CBD Shown To Reduce Blood Pressure





A recent study conducted at the University of Nottingham in England has shown that a single dose of Cannabidiol can effectively lower blood pressure for individuals that are suffering from high blood pressure. This is great news, considering Cannabidiol is a non-addictive, natural medication. It is also an amazing breakthrough because this means that it can treat many other cardiovascular disorders, not just hypertension. Cannabidiol is believed to be a neuroprotectant that can help prevent cardiovascular disease and stroke, in addition to lowering an elevated heart rate.

Key Takeaways:

  • CBD may help prevent cardiovascular disease, specifically by lowering systolic blood pressure.
  • Patients who received one oral dose had an average of 5-7 mmHg drop in systolic blood pressure.
  • CBD may help reduce cardiovascular risk in other ways- like being a vasodilator and protecting neurons that regulate heartbeat.

"Nearly 75 million adults in the United States suffer from hypertension, or high blood pressure. That means around 32 percent of the population is at an increased risk for heart disease and stroke.

Recognizing potential conditions early using TCM can prevent early onset conditions from getting worse and treating conditions when they just start.

Key Takeaways:

  • Modern medicine focuses on treating sickness rather than preventing disease.

Subject: California Could Become a Sanctuary State — for Marijuana





With a new bill proposed in California, the state could soon go against the federal marijuana prohibition. The bill would require a court order to take actions against a person suspected of marijuana use. This also prohibits law enforcement from responding to federal request for personal information or providing information on individuals with a license for marijuana. In addition, the bill also prohibits the transfer of an individual to federal law enforcement for anything marijuana related. The bill has been met with some opposition, especially from law enforcement groups, citing it would limit the effectiveness of their job.

Key Takeaways:

  • California's Assembly Bill 1578, if passed, would stop cooperation between state and federal law enforcement, when it comes to the state's marijuana policy.
  • The law is also aimed at protecting legal marijuana businesses as long as they operate within the state's laws and regulations.
  • Several states have approved marijuana use for at least medicinal purposes. Federal legislation has yet to be passed.

"The proposed law is essentially an attempt to strengthen California’s already existing laws, which conflict with federal policy on the plant."

Subject: Who Shouldn’t Eat Soy?





As you get more and more soy compounds in the body, they have pro estrogen effects. There is health potential to soy and it will help protect women and their bodies. Foods with soy tend to have a lot of benefits. It protects bones and helps tame hot flash symptoms. One experts says that rather than relying on individual soy components we should look at consumption patters instead, which is more logical. That is how we will get the health benefits from it.

  • Menopausal women taking hormone replacement therapy suffered a higher risk of breast cancer, cardiovascular disease and harm.
  • Estrogen reduces menopausal system.
  • We need selective estrogen receptor modulators and phytoestrogens.

"How can soy foods have it both ways—pro-estrogenic effects in some organs (Protecting bones and reducing hot flash symptoms), but anti-estrogenic effects in others (Protecting against breast and endometrial cancer)?"

Subject: Reverse osteoporosis naturally for strong and healthy bones





Want to know how to keep your bones healthy and avoid osteoporosis? You should! There are three lifestyle changes you can make to avoid and even reverse osteoporosis naturally: eat foods that support your bones, use specific natural remedies, avoid these common things, and exercise. It's never too late to begin Protecting your bones!

Key Takeaways:

  • Bones, like the rest of our body parts, are living material. They’re in a constant state of remodeling, breaking down and building up.
  • We know that for women, post-menopause, estrogen levels take a nosedive and bone loss speeds up. Estrogen plays a role in laying down healthy new bone in the body.
  • Foods good for your bones are broccoli, leafy green vegetables (can you ever get enough kale?), tofu, almonds, beans, and sesame seeds.

"Dairy, like cheese and ice cream in particular, is acidic, whereas your body is better off with food with a more alkaline pH. When you eat a lot of dairy, your body pulls calcium from your bones to try to neutralize the acidity."

Subject: If You Want To Detox, Look To The Liver

The liver is the largest organ in the body and is responsible for processing toxins in it. This organ has been shown to have over five hundred vital functions including production of bile, metabolism of protein and carbohydrates, storing vitamins, and detoxification. This makes it very important to always detox it in order to keep it working at its best. Apart from getting rid of all the toxic substances that will have build up, here are some of the other benefits of liver cleansing.


Benefits of Liver Cleansing

Immune system support – Since the liver is responsible for the removal of toxins from the body, cleansing it makes your immune system stronger.

Supports whole body detox – As the liver removes toxic substances from the body, there are some little amounts of toxins that remains in it. With time there is buildup of too many toxins which will need you to detox it to make it work well again.

Increasing vitality - By cleansing the liver, you will have restored it to its peak working condition. This in turn will help breakdown fats thus make your skin look healthier and younger.

Weight loss – Cleansing promotes bile production which is used to break down fats. It is therefore important to detox if you want to lose weight.


How efficient your liver works depends on the constant supply of antioxidant nutrients to it. One of the major antioxidants that you can use to detoxification the liver is Glutathione. This antioxidant enzyme protects the liver cells from radical damage and also protects them from environmental damage. It also protects the liver cells from toxic substances that are produced by the body itself. Another antioxidant that has proven to be one of the most potent liver-Protecting substances is silymarin. It I responsible for the stimulation of new liver cells production and can even stimulate glutamine levels up to 35 percent. It is very important to cleanse your liver regularly to always keep it clean and realize these health benefits.

People are so busy these days that they are always looking for the “easy way out” when it comes to treating problems. Why alter your diet when you can just buy a specially formulated shampoo to treat your hair issues? Companies count on us needing something so badly that we will buy anything as long as it says the right thing on the bottle. In reality, a healthy diet is the best thing we can do for our hair. Fruits and vegetables are particularly useful due to their high amount of vitamins and minerals.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamins play an important role for our well-being. In today’s fast paced world, many people skip meals, eat on the run or choose poor quality foods.
  • Fruits and vegetables are rarely added to the daily diet, which leads to various ailments related to vitamin deficiencies, including affecting your skin and hair, resulting in hair loss or baldness and patches on your nails.
  • Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that repairs and builds tissue, and is essential for healthy hair growth.

"Most of us are aware that vitamin C can help boost our immunity, Protecting us against frequent colds and other infections."

When you grab an energy drink you expect it to provide you with an uplifting mood and alleviate tiredness for the next few hours. It isn't actual radioactive energy that you think about, but what if your drink actually contained traces of this substance? What you learn in this article might shock you but it is important to know.

Key Takeaways:

  • Ultimately, in the interest of Protecting public health, the federal government closed down the Bailey Radium Laboratories (PDF) -- the company that made RadiThor -- and radium-containing energy drinks disappeared from the consumer market by 1932.
  • Today, the energy drink market is occupied by drink formulations that rely on the stimulant caffeine to invigorate their customers and provide them with the enhanced "energy" that they seek.
  • Caffeine -- the commonplace ingredient in coffee, tea, chocolate and cola -- may not be as exotic as radium, but it actually is a stimulant, so customers do feel energized, and it isn't very dangerous to health.

Ginger root: a homemade remedy for stomach pain and nausea

Subject: Ginger root: a homemade remedy for stomach pain and nausea

A fragrant homemade remedy for an upset stomach is ginger. There are several properties that make ginger root a stomach pain soother. Researches have shown that ginger root has proved effective in getting rid of nausea while pregnancy. It is more effective than any anti inflammatory drug. Ginger root can alleviate the pain and discomfort in your abdomen in many ways. One gram of ginger taken in the form of tea, ale, salad, juice or soup is as efficacious as the anti-nausea drug, dimenhydrinate because it has lesser side effects. Ginger root is a better cure for nausea than vitamin B6. Ginger has reduced nausea due to chemotherapy in many cases.

The healing spice, ginger has anti-inflammatory properties which helps it in increasing the digestive juices, neutralizing the stomach, thus soothing the stomach pain. Ginger helps in the secretion of some digestive juices and enzymes that neutralize the stomach. The root of ginger contains two chemicals: gingerols and shogaols. These are antioxidants that reduce the free radical production, thus Protecting the body from them. 

When we use ginger root to treat stomach pain, these two chemicals soothe the intestinal tract, in order to prevent motion sickness and relieve the person from vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea and nausea. As the intestinal tract gets relaxed, the person is instantly relieved of pain. It causes elimination of any extra gas from the intestinal tract. Ginger root help in the quick flow of food in the stomach through the digestive tract by facilitating better absorption of nutrients. It aids in the production of bile, saliva and other gastric juices for better digestion and prevention of gas. The muscles are relaxed because of the phenols present in ginger root, that act like a sedative. Any over activity of stomach is prevented. The stomach cramps are prevented because ginger reduces the food from backing up in the digestive system. These phenols also help in quick movement of food and toxins in intestine and digestive system. Besides, ginger root helps in improving blood circulation and decreasing inflammation.

What Exactly Do Friendly Bacteria Do In The Intestinal Tract?

Subject: What Exactly Do Friendly Bacteria Do In The Intestinal Tract?

Contrary to the popular belief that all bacteria are bad for your health, there are friendly bacteria that are very beneficial to your health. The friendly bacteria are mainly found in the colon, which is also known as the large intestine. The small intestine also has friendly bacteria. The first section of the intestine, the esophagus and the stomach are mostly bacteria-free due to the deterrent effect caused by the strong stomach acid as well as the high level of digestive enzymes in this areas.

The friendly bacteria that are found in the intestinal tract are very important to the human digestive system. They are responsible for producing enzymes that digest polysaccharides in plant cell walls. Some of the plant materials that you eat on a daily basis contribute to the fiber in your diet. The fiber is very important for a healthy colon. The enzymes that are released by the friendly bacteria usually make sure that most of the nutritional value of the plant materials that you eat does not go to waste.

Digestive System

Some bacteria in the intestinal tract usually make vitamin K, which is necessary for the formation of new bone and blood clotting. They also make the vitamins from the B group. These types of vitamins are very difficult to get from the food that you eat every day. Attempts of humans to manufacture them have not been fruitful so far. The beneficial bacteria are also very helpful in stimulating the immune system and maintaining optimum pH. They may also help in digesting or breaking down hormones that are not required anymore, drugs, and environmental substances that carry the risk of causing cancer.

Friendly bacteria also prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in the intestinal tract. When an ideal pH of the colon is maintained (which should be between 6.7 and 6.9), the growth of harmful bacteria such as shigella which causes diarrhea, salmonella which causes food poisoning, and e.coli which can cause kidney failure and intestinal disease is inhibited. The beneficial bacteria also produce volatile fatty acid which works together with other acids in the intestinal tract to suppress the survival of yeast (candida) and fungus.

Normalizing bowel movements is another function that the friendly bacteria play in the intestinal tract. They do this by decreasing the time that waste products usually take to move through the digestive system. They also aid in correcting diarrhea and stopping constipation. Good bacteria also stimulate the formation of antibodies that protect your body against infectious diseases. They make your immunity strong.

Another important thing that good bacteria do in the digestive system is removing toxic elements. They deactivate various organisms that are in food or produced by other organisms. This is mainly done by a bacterium called Lactobacillus acidophilus. The friendly bacteria are also instruments in reducing cholesterol, improving fat digestion by providing mobile acids, and Protecting against cancer.

Gas problems are also eliminated by the good bacteria. They also sweeten your breath, which would be a foul-smelling waste if bad bacteria take over the intestinal tract. Production of lactase enzyme is another thing that good bacteria do. This enzyme is necessary for digesting milk and milk products when they get to the digestive system. Without it, allergies will be a sure thing.

A Simple Thing As Taking A Breath Causes Us To Age

Subject: A Simple Thing As Taking A Breath Causes Us To Age

We are often told that stress level accelerates the process of aging. But, is there any kind of scientific evidence to prove this perception? Some of the results of scientific studies have already suggested that, oxidative stress has a negative impact on both physical and emotional health.

Breathing oxygen leads to the formation of ROS or reactive oxygen species within the body, which is essential for the cellular signaling process. Aerobic metabolism results in the generation of small amounts of ROS and free radicals. This is necessary for the normal functioning of the human body. But, there is a specific reason for which the ROS carry negative connotations. Whenever our body’s antioxidant defense mechanism malfunctions, the balance between oxidant and antioxidant gets spoiled. The circulative level of ROS moves out of control and causes a disturbance in the redox signaling and control and further damages the macromolecules, cells and tissues. The DNA damage response is a hierarchical procedure.

It has been widely recognized that, oxidative stress is one of the primary factors, which makes the aging process faster.

Best Anti-Aging Diet

What you eat has a great impact on how you are feeling and how you are aging. If you eat right, it will contribute to a great extent to keep your skin young and healthy. Antioxidants help stop unstable molecules from damaging healthy cells. You will get antioxidants in colorful fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, blueberries, leafy greens, dark red tomatoes, etc. So, your goal is to consume at least half plates of fruits and vegetables in each of your meals.

Vitamin C, zinc and beta carotene are three main antioxidants, which protects the eyes from macular degeneration and poor vision. Dark green leafy vegetables such as kale, mustard greens, spinach and collard are great sources of these nutrients. Foods like oranges, corns and pepper also help to keep your eye healthy. Vitamin C is also beneficial for the skin. Some studies have also suggested that, daily consumption of yellow and green vegetables helps lessen the wrinkles of the skin.

Resveratrol is another powerful antioxidant, which is highly present in grapes and red wine. It not only lowers the aging process, but, also lowers the chances of cancer and heart disease. Studies have also revealed that, nuts are rich sources of unsaturated fats. They are also great sources of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals like antioxidants. Thus, it helps to keep the skin healthy and young.

Beans and lentils are great sources of fiber and plant-based protein. They are very beneficial for Protecting you from early aging. So, you can easily consume them instead of red meat, which have saturated fat and are not great for your heart.

Dairy products like low-fat milk, yogurt, etc. are also great options for slowing down your aging process. If you do not eat dairy, you can replace them with soya milk, almond milk or cereals.

Try out these antioxidant rich foods and stay young for many years to come. Antioxidant Supplements are also available in the market.
