People who frequently experience bouts of anxiety and frequent periods of stress may find it hard to wind down after a hard day at work. This can then result in the inability to relax and inability to sleep. That is why anxiety and stress are recognized as the two most prominent leading causes of insomnia. Insomnia on the other hand takes a major toll on one’s physical health and mental well-being. What could be the solution? Researchers have found that this could be keeping a jasmine plant in the house. The scent which the jasmine plant releases has been linked to a reduction in anxiety and stress. The author states that the Jasmine plant is a flower that blooms at night with a sweet fragrance and exciting smell. Companies use it to make teas, incense, essential oils, and then perfumes. Its health benefits are immense and it has been used to treat diabetes, hepatitis, and cancer. It can now be proved that it can used to reduce anxiety and stress in individuals. It is estimated that about 40 million adults are affected yearly by anxiety and stress. The author then states the pathways in which jasmine works.

Key Takeaways:

  • People who experience frequent bouts of anxiety at the end of the day or frequent episodes of stress often find it difficult to wind down.
  • Anxiety and stress are two of the leading causes of insomnia and there is nothing like not being able to sleep at the end of the day.
  • The solution to insomnia has been found by several studies to be keeping a jasmine plant in the room that helps to reduce anxiety levels.

"One way to combat a high level of toxins in the air is to keep a jasmine plant nearby. Research concludes a jasmine plant in your room can serve as relief for sleeplessness, anxiety, and stress, among other illnesses. Simply breathing the aromatic scent of the plant can help to significantly calm your anxieties."

5 Foods To Help You Fight Insomnia

Subject: 5 Foods To Help You Fight Insomnia





Insomnia, which is a chronic lack of sleep, achieved because the insomniac can't seem to enter a state of sleeping, or because the sufferer can't sustain the state once achieved, is a debilitating problem for many. While there exist pharmaceutical interventions for insomnia, there are also more natural ways to combat the problem, specifically food choices that may help. Tryptophan is the hormone that releases the relaxing chemical serotinin, that helps sleep arrive. Hummus has natural tryptophan. Kiwi has specific phtyochemicals and antioxidants that also promote sleep. Healthy carbs tend to make us sleep, which is why corn is a good sleep-promoter. Milk is another healthy carrier of tryptophan. Chewing on basil might help too as it eases mental woes and soothes troubled digestion.

Key Takeaways:

  • A word that can be used to describe insomnia in this our era is habitual sleeplessness and this phenomenon is on the rise.
  • Insomnia when it becomes habitual causes restlessness and anxiety. At night, even though one is exhausted, sleep does not come and one gets fidgety and the mind blurry.
  • Insomnia has treatment or remedies to cure the condition which involves medication, therapies, and soothing products, but sometimes these remedies do not work.

"The sugar level in candies is capable of upsetting your blood sugar levels which leads to the interruption of your sleep. You might sleep well immediately after eating them but after some time, you will wake up irritable. Corn is a healthy carb you should incorporate in your diet."

Subject: Alpha GPC: the Supplement that Can Boost Memory, Learning & More?





Alpha glycerylphosphoryl choline (alpha GPC) is source of choline that is considered a fatty acid. Alpha GPC has the potential to help cognitive function, as well as aid the body in necessary muscle contraction. Neurologists have found that not only does alpha GPC aid in promoting optimal cognitive function, but it can also help treat memory impairments associated with Alzheimer's and dementia. The muscle-related benefits also lead to higher athletic performance due to an increase in overall muscle strength.

Key Takeaways:

  • Because A-GPC or alpha GPC works to stimulate an important neurotransmitter to the brain when it releases choline, it is an important chemical for brain health.
  • Elderly people who have symptoms of dementia and want to improve it as well as athletes who want to improve their endurance and power can take alpha GPC.
  • Alpha GPC is a molecule that releases choline in the brain. It is found in soy lecithin and other plants as a fatty acid.

"Studies suggest that alpha GPC is one of the best nootropic brain supplements on the market."

Overcoming adrenal fatigue naturally

Overcoming adrenal fatigue naturally

The human body has a well-developed system it uses to aid us when we experience stress. Firstly, the brain identifies the threat. Then the body releases hormones designed to do two things, rush blood to the muscles and heart to assist in fighting off the aggressive agent and dampening body processes that are not needed in the attack, such as digestive ones.

Were one fighting of a saber-tooth tiger, this would be of benefit. Today's stresses are far more nuanced, insidious and long-lasting. And when constant stress overworks the adrenals, which are the rabble-rousers in charge of turning off immunity and digestion until the tiger has turned tail, well then they get tired. This condition is called, aptly, adrenal fatigue. It can last for a short while, or a long time. It induces fatigue and it can lead to "brain fog." Other symptoms can include disturbances in mood, or sleep, food cravings and muscle and bone loss. To recuperate, it's necessary to convince the body the tiger has gone. Eat healthy, sleep healthy. Take vitamins and nourish yourself physically and psychically.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some symptoms of adrenal fatigue include brain fog and insulin resistance. And busy new parents, college students and caregivers are most at risk of getting it.
  • The adrenal gland functions rhythmically. During the day it releases cortisol that wakes us up and at the evening it reduces it to make us go to bed.
  • Adrenal fatigue stresses the adrenaline such that when stress occurs, it takes longer for the individual to recover.

"One of the most important parts of restoring adrenal function is listening to your body and minding your stress levels."

Hemp shows potential for treating ovarian cancer

New studies are showing that a specific form of hemp called KY-hemp is successful at slowing down the process of cell migration when it comes to ovarian cancer. KY-hemp is a form of hemp that is specifically grown and distributed from the state of Kentucky. Although hemp is a member of the cannabis family such as marijuana, it does not promote any psychoactive effects or cause any risk for developing a dependency on the drug.

Key Takeaways:

  • Unfortunately, experts have weighed in that the medical impact of hemp has not been studied in-depth.
  • Using KY-hemp has shown recently to reduce the cell migration rate of cancer cells.
  • KY-hemp has shown to reduce cell migration more than the mainstream drug Cisplatin, but it still needs more research.

"Results from some of the first studies to examine hemp's ability to fight cancer show that it might one day be useful as plant-based treatment for ovarian cancer."

Researchers have shown that lactic acid bacteria (LAB) may provide broad protection against influenza viruses. LAB are best known for their human gut floral maintenance, fermentative activity, and preservative capacity. LAB are widely used in food industry, such as in the preparation of fermented dairy products, pickling of vegetables, and baking. LAB have many health benefits, such as alleviation of diarrhea, stimulation of immune system, inhibition of infections, and prevention of certain diseases. So, LAB have been classified as probiotics. Previous studies have suggested that many LAB strains protect mice against influenza virus. The aim of the new study is to further explore the antiviral effect of LAB.

Key Takeaways:

  • The current seasonal vaccines are readily available but only work well when when vaccine strains and circulating influenza viruses are well matched.
  • The probiotics commonly used to regulate digestive issues can potentially offer protection agains Influenza A
  • After testing on mice in labs, they are beginning to feel confident that these probiotics can be offered in a nasal spray to humans.

Subject: Zinc-binding is vital for regulating pH levels in the brain





According to a study from the University of Oslo, Zinc-binding plays a critical role in the regulation and sensing of pH in the brains of humans. This is one of the first studies to link the binding of zinc with bicarbonate transporters. Researchers from the University’s Centre for Molecular Medicine published these findings in Scientific Reports. These results are important because optimal ph levels are very important for our overall health. In fact, low ph levels in infants sometimes leads to brain damage. Lead researcher Preben Morth emphasized that research into zinc’s role in the regulation of ph is important for understanding overall brain health and function.

Key Takeaways:

  • A low ph-level at birth is linked to low oxygen which can lead to brain damage
  • zinc binding is an important element of having a balanced ph level
  • before CO2 is expelled as waste from our body it is part of the process of regulating our ph

"An example of how important pH levels are to our health is demonstrated by the fact that pH levels in blood from the umbilical cord are always tested in newborn babies."

According to recent research conducted on nutrition at the University of Texas, various natural compounds may help prevent the development of prostate cancer. These compounds are plant-based chemicals commonly found in foods such as tumeric, apple peels, rosemary, tumeric, and certain berries. Certain combinations of these chemicals can block cancer cells from obtaining nutrients they require to survive. The study effectively slowed tumor growth in mice without detrimental health effects. This research is especially promising for those with an increased risk of cancer due to obesity or a chronic inflammation.

Subject: Prebiotics reduce body fat in overweight children





In the developed world today the most costly medical condition, for youth, is being overweight. This is a symptom arising from over nutrition. One such way to combat this epidemic may be to use probiotic, as part of a regular diet. A double blind test was preformed by the University of Calgary, in Canada. A controlled group of 42 participant age ranging from 7 to 12 years old participated. The participants added a powder mix to daily water intake and were monitored thereafter. The results showed that the group who supplemented with prebiotic lost more weight than those who took the placebo. Since prebiotic is inexpensive and non-invasive this area of weight loss techniques needs to be studied further.

Key Takeaways:

  • Slowed weight gain resulted from just one dose of probiotics a day compared to the control group
  • Since this is a low-cost treatment, it could be a promising way to help curb over nutrition in children
  • Obesity is one of the most common ailments facing children today

"Prebiotics reduce body fat in children who are overweight or obese by altering their gut microbiota, according to new research. Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients (such as fiber) that act as fertilizers to help stimulate the growth of good bacteria already in the gut, different from probiotics, which introduce new bacteria into the system."

The level of zinc in the body can strongly affect the heart muscle. The Chair of Animal Nutrition at TUM put this theory to the test on piglets deprived of zinc for a period of time. They were able to find that zinc deprivation can be linked to oxidative stress which in turn can be linked to many different heart issues. After a few days into the study, it was found that the body could no longer compensate for absent amounts of zinc. As the heart attempted to compensate, other organs were affected. Other studies also concluded similar research.

Your thyroid is an important gland that releases hormones responsible for body growth and development. When it slows down, a condition called hypothyroidism, your body functions slow down too including your brain and gut function. Hypothyroidism can be diagnosed with a blood test but some people's levels are just out if range to be diagnosed with hypothyroidism, they still suffer from an under functioning thyroid. You should see your doctor if you have symptoms of hypothyroidism including dry puffy skin (a condition also caused by hyperthyroidism) , low energy., constant constipation or diarrhea and weight fluctuations. Hyperthyroidism can cause quick weight loss while hypothyroidism and drop your metabolic rate causing weight gain.. Eliminating sugars and increasing protein intake can also help thyroid function .

Key Takeaways:

  • If you lack focus, feel tired and groggy in the mornings, or suffer from anxiety, you might have hypothyroidism.
  • The thyroid is a large hormone secreting gland. Those hormones regulate growth and development. If the thyroid secretes less hormones, your body will slow down.
  • Hypothyroidism is difficult to diagnose. Even if your TSH levels are normal, if you feel symptoms a higher consumption of superfoods is advisable.

"approximately 200 million people across the globe suffer from some type of thyroid dysfunction."

If the fungus is stopped from causing problems in the intestines, patients could also feel relief from inflammatory bowel disorders. Anti-inflammatory medications are often used to treat IBDs, but it turns out that many patients with IBDs have an immune response to yeast. A study on mice found that high levels of yeast caused them to produce excess uric acid, and that their bowel disease could then be treated with medication to reduce the uric acid. The researchers are confident these results could be used on humans as well.

Canola oil is extracted from rapeseed and despite claims that it's healthy, it's actually the worst type of oil you can use. Most canola oil is made from genetically modified crops and the modification actually increases risks to health including causing cancer. Oil made from rapeseed used to be used as an industrial lubricant and canola can be used as a pesticide. It's important to also know that the oil is hydrogenated and can cause cardiac risks.

Key Takeaways:

  • All cooking oils (other than “cold pressed” or “extra virgin” oils) are refined. This process typically includes degumming; bleaching and deodorizing.
  • Canola oil actually comes from rapeseed, and in the past it was simply known as rapeseed oil. At that stage, rapeseed oil was not used in the food industry.
  • In a nutshell, healthy living and canola oil simply don’t mix. There are far better options available, including organic extra virgin olive oil; organic cold pressed coconut oil, etc.

Cancer research has taken a front seat to many research projects over the years. Scientists have studied many different chemicals and how they can affect cancer cells. Vitamin C, which is an essential nutrient the body needs normally, has been found to be effective against some cancer cells in studies. Vitamin C has been shown before to be effective against cancer, but more research still needs to be done to show the best way to use this nutrient in therapy. Researchers want to use it to make chemotherapy and other drug options more effective.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin C is up to ten times more effective at stopping cancer cell growth than pharmaceuticals such as 2-DG, according to scientists in Salford, UK.
  • Vitamin C has previously been shown to be effective as a non-toxic anti-cancer agent in studies by Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling and was recently shown to reduce mortality by 25% on breast cancer patients in Japan
  • "Our results indicate it is a promising agent for clinical trials, and a as an add-on to more conventional therapies, to prevent tumour recurrence, further disease progression and metastasis

""Vitamin C is cheap, natural, non-toxic and readily available so to have it as a potential weapon in the fight against cancer would be a significant step.""

  • Every year, studies on the benefits of sunbathing in moderate doses are interspersed with those that confirm the risks of doing it excessively.
  • While in spring and summer 10 to 20 minutes in the sun are enough, in the winter months almost two hours would be needed

"Although ultraviolet (UV) solar radiation contributes to the development of sun erythema, cancer and aging of the skin, it also reduces blood pressure."

Subject: Researchers identify how inflammation spreads through the brain after injury





Researchers have identified a new mechanism by which inflammation can spread throughout the brain after injury. This mechanism may explain the widespread and long-lasting inflammation that occurs after traumatic brain injury, and may play a role in other neurodegenerative diseases. This new understanding has the potential to transform how brain inflammation is understood, and, ultimately, how it is treated.

Key Takeaways:

  • The researchers showed that micro-particles derived from brain inflammatory cells are markedly increased in both the brain and the blood following experimental traumatic brain injury (TBI).
  • Research has found that neuroinflammation often goes on for years after TBI, causing chronic brain damage. The researchers say that the micro-particles may play a key role in this process.
  • The researchers studied mice, and found that in animals who had a traumatic brain injury, levels of micro-particles in the blood were much higher. Because each kind of cell in the body has a distinct fingerprint, the researchers could track exactly where the micro-particles came from.

"This new understanding has the potential to transform how brain inflammation is understood, and, ultimately, how it is treated."

Some sugar is fine for a diet, but avoiding fructose will not keep your body free of the chemical. This leads to risk of high blood sugar and other health issues. The study may affect many diets and the understanding of obesity.

Subject: Cause of inflammation in diabetes identified





A reason why diabetics suffer from inflammation has been verified. Through research on mice, Washington University has discovered that if there is a lack of fat in a cell, that particular cell cannot produce any fat. While inflammation does not need to be completely prevented, this discovery could provide new methods of dealing with excess inflammation in diabetics.

Key Takeaways:

  • Inflammation is one of the main reasons why people with diabetes experience heart attacks, strokes, kidney problems and other, related complications.
  • Too much fat in the diet promotes insulin resistance by spurring chronic inflammation.
  • Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine have developed a way to block production of fatty acids in these immune cells in mice and protect them from diet-induced diabetes.

"Inflammation is one of the main reasons why people with diabetes experience heart attacks, strokes, kidney problems and other, related complications."

Subject: Marijuana could help treat drug addiction, mental health, study suggests





Marijuana may become legal in Canada as early as next year. With that in mind, researchers are trying to determine if the drug might have more implications than just for recreation. They have been reviewing all studies available on marijuana to see if there is a link between the use of cannabis and health. What they found is that the substance may be helpful in getting addicts off of alcohol and opioids. It may also reduce symptoms of PTSD, depression, and anxiety. More research needs to be done, but the possibilities are promising.

Key Takeaways:

  • Using marijuana could help some alcoholics and people addicted to opioids kick their habits, a UBC study has found.
  • This comprehensive review of research on medical cannabis use and mental health also found some evidence that cannabis may help with symptoms of depression, PTSD and social anxiety.
  • However, the review concluded that cannabis use might not be recommended for conditions such as bipolar disorder and psychosis.

"Research suggests that people may be using cannabis as an exit drug to reduce use of substances that are potentially more harmful, such as opioid pain medication"

Subject: Evidence points to fish oil to fight asthma





Based on evidence, it turns out that fish oil can help fight asthma. The omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil can help to fight asthma. This is what a lot of scientists at universities are saying. There was a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in December of 2016 that showed pregnant women, who ate fish, or took fish oil supplements had a lower risk of having kids with asthma.

Key Takeaways:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids have myriad health benefits, and high quality supplements may be beneficial
  • Asthma patients who took omega-3 supplements experienced a reduction in the antibodies that cause asthma, but the supplements were not as effective in those on corticosteroids
  • Steroids may interfere with omega-3 fatty acids' effects on asthma symptoms, and over time may reduce the body's ability to combat asthma on its own

"Steroids are usually a very effective treatment for asthma."

Immune system suppression may be related to problem drinking

Subject: Immune system suppression may be related to problem drinking





Excessive alcohol intake can harm the body’s immune system in two ways. First, it produces an overall nutritional deficiency, depriving the body of valuable immune boosting nutrients. Second, alcohol, like sugar, consumed in excess can reduce the ability of white cells to kill germs. High doses of alcohol suppress the ability of the white blood cells to multiply, inhibit the action of killer white cells on cancer cells, and lessen the ability of macrophages to produce tumor necrosis factors.
