Subject: The nutritional content and health benefits of pecans and walnuts





Walnuts and pecans are both healthy snacks with lots of benefits. Walnuts have more fat and more protein, while pecans have more fiber and more natural sugars. The fat in both pecans and walnuts consists predominantly of healthy fats like monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, as well as omega-3s. Both pecans and walnuts are good for brain health and rich in antioxidants. Their polyphenols help to protect the brain, while their healthy fats help to safeguard the heart and prevent atherosclerosis.

Key Takeaways:

  • Pecans and walnuts might have differences in looks and taste, but they are very well regarded for their healthiness and great tastes.
  • When one takes a serving of walnuts, he discovers that it contains more calories than an equal serving of pecans and this extra energy is stored in fats.
  • The fats in walnuts are usually good fats which consist mostly of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, along with omega-3 fatty acids.

"Walnuts have the B vitamins choline and niacin, while pecans show tiny amounts of vitamin A."

Subject: Go nuts with the cancer-protective properties of walnuts





Despite some of the negative press that the nut group receives overall, there is some significant proof that incorporating nuts, specifically walnuts into your diet can have positive effects. From assisting with cancer prevention, boosting your mood, weight loss assistance and even strengthen your bones, the benefits could outweigh your negative mindset. Also be aware that the method in which you prepare your walnuts could also change the properties of the un-roasted nut structure. Remaining natural with your nut selection is usually best.

Key Takeaways:

  • One of the widely grown and consumed nuts due to their health benefits are walnuts. They have bioactive compounds such as polyunsaturated fats, polyphenols, and dietary fiber.
  • While walnuts are popularly eaten raw or roasted, it has long been assumed that heat treatment may change them but a study reveals that this is not the case.
  • The study focused on whether roasted walnuts still have their anticancer properties and they tested both raw and roasted walnuts to in vitro digestion and fermentation.

"These results, which were published in the journal Nutrition Research, indicated that walnuts reduce the risk of colon cancer by inducing expression of genes involved in detoxification and by causing growth inhibition and apoptosis in colon adenoma cells."

Subject: Does Hemp Oil Have Health Benefits?





Hemp oil is a type of CBD oil that is extracted from the hemp plant and has only trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive substance in marijuana. Because the THC levels in hemp are so low (and legal), it does not give you that high affect. Hemp is high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and is a known anti-inflammatory. Some claim the fatty acids in hemp oil alleviate anxiety, physical, and emotional pain linked to PMS and other conditions. According to some research, the polyunsaturated fats in hemp oil may decrease cholesterol levels, making it a heart healthy substance. However, most hemp studies have not been conducted on humans and the substance itself has not been thoroughly tested for heavy metals, plastics or pesticides. For these reasons, it may be best to wait until hemp is more closely regulated before making it a part of your daily routine.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many persons seem to have taken on the trend that CBD oil is good for them because it has many health benefits.
  • Many persons think that hemp oil, the sister to CBD oil is good for them, and believe the claims that it is good for anxiety and sleep.
  • The difference between hemp and marijuana is that marijuana contains high amount of THC, the stuff that makes one high in cannabis, while hemp contains low amount.

"Not only does hemp oil not have any real health benefits, but it may contain stuff that's actually bad for you."

If you have been trying to remove all fat from your diet, you've been making a mistake. The human body needs fat to function. You just need to make sure you are getting the right fats. When it comes to your health, unsaturated fats are beneficial, trans fats are detrimental, and the jury is still out on saturated fats. Failure to consume enough healthy fats can lead to cognitive fatigue, dry skin, joint pain and other ailments. To ensure your body gets enough good fat, fill your diet with seeds, fruits, nuts and fatty fish.

Key Takeaways:

  • Beneficial fats should be a regular part of your daily diet for both heart and brain health.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids are the perfect brain food and have been shown to prevent ADHD and enhance cognitive function.
  • Healthy fats have been shown to help alleviate joint pain, support good vision, and improve anxiety and mood swings.

"Your skin is what you eat and good skin always starts from the inside. Aside from collagen and elastin, healthy fats also help to keep your skin moisturized and supple. As our skin cells are surrounded by them, low levels of fats in the body can lead to dry, flaky and irritated skin (4)."

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

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."

Known as the miracle tree, the moringa plant has many health benefits derived from its pods, leaves, and seeds. Moringa is grown in northern India and is commonly used by natives in cooking. The seeds of the moringa are rich in both antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, making it very beneficial for those with ulcerative colitis and other GI conditions. Moringa seeds have also been shown to decrease blood sugar levels, making it the perfect superfood for diabetics or those at-risk. Furthermore, moringa seeds can help decrease one’s risk of developing breast, colon, and liver cancers by suppressing the spread of cancer cells.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many bitter foods like Moringa, dark leafy vegetables, bitter gourds, and dark chocolate, have proven themselves to be superfoods. But of them all, Moringa is the least popular.
  • Moringa in fact is termed a “miracle tree” due to the fact that all of its parts including the leaves, pods, and seeds, have health benefits.
  • Originally from India and now spread to Asia and Africa, the plant can be used for biodiesel production, manufacturing of beauty products, and water filtration.

"Moringa is a good source of healthy monounsaturated fats that lower bad cholesterol and consequently reduce the risk of heart disease. Previous studies have also shown that moringa seeds protect heart cells from damage induced by oxidative stress and excessive inflammation."

Foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids are showing promise in the reduction of inflammation and arthritic pain. A study was done where 167 adults who suffered from knee pain were given blood tests in order to evaluate where their levels of omega-3 fatty acids were. Those who had less omega-3 compared to omega-6 were the participants that had the most bothersome symptoms. Omega-6 differs from omega-3 in the fact that these polyunsaturated fatty acids are detrimental to health due to inflammatory responses that they induce.

Key Takeaways:

  • 167 individuals with knee arthritis were assessed for this study and their omega-6 fatty acid ratios were compared to their omega-3 fatty acids.
  • According to the results, individuals with more ratios of omega-6 fatty acids in their blood than omega-3 fatty acids were prone to knee arthritis pain and worse knee function.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids contains compounds that are anti-inflammatory so foods rich in this fatty acid like eggs, salmon, and green leafy vegetables, should be taken regularly.

"Making simple dietary changes can greatly improve your health. Eating more foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids and fewer foods high in omega-6 fatty acids can reduce inflammation and arthritis pain, according to a study published in the Clinical Journal of Pain."

People who identify as vegans obviously follow a much different diet than other individuals in the world. For some, there are massive benefits to undertaking a vegan diet because of what it means for the environment. However, there are some drawbacks. For example, for someone who is on a vegan diet to be able to improve their omega-3 levels, they must look for substances outside of food. Non-animal forms of DHA are proving to be very helpful.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some necessary fatty acids are hard to obtain when living on a vegan diet.
  • DHA is one polyunsaturated fatty acid, that belongs with the class of omega-3 fatty acids.
  • DHA levels in human beings are especially high in the retina, the brain and in sperm cells.

"In the review, author J.C. Craddock of the University of Wollongong in Australia said that supplementing with algae can raise DHA levels in vegetarians and vegans after combing through various studies that discussed the relationship between the two."

Sea buckthorn oil can promote liver health and decrease the storage of body fat

More study is now being done regarding lesser known fruits and vegetables, not only for the betterment of human understanding, but also to potentially augment the list of natural alternatives to pharmaceuticals for the improvement of human health.

Healthy lipids and fatty acids have been on the nutrition radar for a while now, as these items are known for having useful bioactive ingredients, including high vitamin content, making them useful for human consumption. Sea buckthorn oil is a new face on the lipid list, but offering some impressive credentials. For example, the plant shows high levels of vitamin A and E, phytosterols and unsaturated fatty acids. One study suggests that the type of oil used by humans effects how much vitamin A the liver stores. The ware-housing effect was considerably upped when rats were given sea buckthorn oil as opposed to soybean oil. Sea buckthorn oil has other pluses too. It can reverse GERD and possibly ulcers, also lower cholesterol and promote heart health. It also reduces inflammation, making it useful for sore inflamed, reddened skin.

Key Takeaways:

  • Every part of the sea buckthorn – oil, leaves, fruit and bark – have been found to have medicinal properties.
  • Based on experiments on rats, sea buckthorn has been found to have high levels of C16 fatty acids and high amount of carotenoids.
  • Sea buckthorn oil, according to the findings, has important effects on the storage of fats in tissues.

Subject: Olive Oil Can Help Preserve Memory And Prevent Alzheimer's





Alzheimer's disease affects nearly 44 million people worldwide. According to a study done by researchers at Temple University in Pennsylvania, olive oil can help preserve memory and essentially prevent Alzheimer's disease. Dominico Pratico, lead researcher of the study, stated that olive oil helps reduce inflammation and activates a process in the brain called autophagy. Autophagy is a way that the cells in the body break down and clean out unwanted debris in the body. Mice were given olive oil in the study, and the mice that received the olive oil showed signs that the olive oil made their memory improve and lessened the signs of Alzheimer's. The researchers from this study plan to continue researching the effects of olive oil and Alzheimer's in older mice to see if they can eradicate the disease in mice altogether.

Key Takeaways:

  • Olive oil, a key ingredient of the Mediterranean diet and a healthier medium of cooking than regular oil can also preserve memory and prevent Alzheimer's disease, new study says.
  • The oil is a key ingredient of the Mediterranean diet, which is popular for a variety of health benefits, including a lower dementia risk
  • Adding extra-virgin olive oil is better than eating fruits and vegetables alone, and as a monounsaturated vegetable fat it is healthier than saturated animal fats.

"When the team studied the brain tissue from both groups of mice, they noticed "dramatic" differences in nerve cell appearance and function. As compared to the mice that didn't consume the oil, the brain cells of rodents in the oil group showed a dramatic increase in nerve cell autophagy activation."

It would if they were linked. It's important to know what does and doesn't contribute so you can keep your heart healthy. It's one of the most important organs. You might still want to watch your saturated fats but not because of heart disease.

Key Takeaways:

  • Saturated fat does not clog the arteries, contrary to popular belief.
  • Taking brisk walks, eating "real food", and minimizing stress are key to reduce heart disease risk.
  • Best approach to treating heart disease is getting to the root cause: Inflammation

"While doctors have long emphasized lowering LDL cholesterol, the report contended that a high total cholesterol to HDL cholesterol ratio is a more accurate predictor of an elevated risk for heart attack and stroke."

Subject: Animal Study Finds Monounsaturated Fats in Olive Oil May Extend Life





A recent genetic study on metabolic changes has discovered an unexpected finding: accumulation of monounsaturated fats may lengthen one's lifespan. Though the study was conducted among roundworms rather than humans, it is interesting to note since researchers previously thought that decreased caloric intake would increase longevity. Rather, it appears that this particular build-up of fat and calories can be beneficial. The researchers discovered this by blocking certain DNA-modifying proteins to increase lifespan among worms, and then noted that these worms displayed higher levels of monounsaturated fatty acids.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers found that feeding roundworms the monounsaturated fat in olive oil prolonged their lifespan and this effect could also extend to people.
  • While the monounsaturated fat extended life, it also caused an unexpected result in that the roundworms gained weight, indicating to researchers that a certain type of fat buildup could be healthful.
  • While there is no definitive answer yet as to why why monounsaturated fat buildup appears to extend life, this does provide more evidence that the fat in extra virgin olive oil is most healthful.

"Prior research shows the type of fat consumed has a much greater influence on health than the quantity, and the recent experiment builds upon what is known on the topic."

Despite a high saturated fat levels, coconut oil is celebrated as having a variety of health benefits. But those benefits may not be supported by science.

Studies have shown that coconut oil does not lower the risk of heart disease relative to other oils. Populations that traditionally consume large amounts of coconut oil also have diets rich in fish and vegetables, so their diets cannot really be compared to standard American eating habits. Small quantities of antioxidants in some coconut oils may lessen inflammation related to heart disease, but this has not been demonstrated in humans.

While there is little evidence for coconut oil's health claims, there is plenty of science to show that diets rich in unsaturated fat, such is olive oil, do help prevent heart disease.

Key Takeaways:

  • With research on currently, there is still no evidence that states consuming coconut oil can lower any risks of heart disease.
  • Some people prefer virgin coconut oil, meaning that they extra the oil by putting pressure onto the meat then separating it.

Several recent studies have made the connection between good diet (olive oil rather than butter) and RA incidence as well as severity and progression of the debilitating disease. The benefits of a good diet contrast with the current medical treatment prognosis for RA which actually weakens the immune system overall, opening the body up to any of a number of potential risk factors which eating right will strengthen the body's ability to resist.

RA is a life threatening disease which kills about 40,000 Americans annually and has a three to one preference to affect the female gender. A quarter of RA patients reported that a few specific dietary changes made noticeable impact, namely increasing blueberry and spinach consumption and reducing processed sugars.

Omega-3 fatty acids play an important role in our health including anti-inflammation, reducing the risk of chronic diseases, maintaining brain function. ALA, DHA and EPA are 3 types of omega-3s that are most beneficial to our brain such as effects on depressive conditions, post-stroke, neuropathic pain, migraines, neurodegenerative disease and improving cognitive performance. ALA comes from plants. DHA and EPA are found in fatty, cold-water fish and shellfish. A balance of sources from plants and seafood will help you to find the right balance of these essential fatty acids, which is fundamental to prevent inflammation. Make sure to consult with your healthcare provider to find out the amount that is best for your unique condition.

Key Takeaways:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), a type of essential fat involved in several metabolic processes.
  • Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis.
  • But perhaps most impressive is the research that confirms the benefits of omega-3s on the brain.

They're packed with minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, and phosphorus. High in essential fatty acids, Omega 6 and omega 3, hemp oil can be used to increase immunity, counteract aging skin and improve cardiovascular health. Several studies show that the linoleic acid present in hemp oil can slow down the aging process and fight psoriasis.

Key Takeaways:

  • Hemp seeds have exceptional nutritional qualities which make them something of a superfood.
  • The seeds and oil do indeed come from the hemp plant.
  • Hemp seeds contain arginine and gamma-Linolenic acid, both of which have been linked with a reduced risk of heart disease.

"Hemp seeds contain arginine and gamma-Linolenic acid, both of which have been linked with a reduced risk of heart disease."

Subject: Coconut Meat: Nutrition Facts and Health Benefits





Coconut oil and milk are common choices for healthy fats in diets. But what about the rest of the fruit? Many don’t know that coconut meat is a great source of vitamins and minerals. It is also very versatile, as it can be put in salads, desserts, smoothies, and sprinkled on baked goods. In addition to vitamins and minerals, coconut is also a great source of fiber. The nutritional content of the food gives it the benefits of helping with bowel health, blood sugar levels, supporting the immune system, and fighting off bacteria and parasites.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many people have used coconut oil as a healthy source of fat, but surprisingly, many may have not tried coconut meat.
  • Coconut meat health benefits are seemingly endless, and people living up north should certainly consider coconut meat in your diet.
  • It can be eaten plain, shredded onto salads, added to smoothies, or sprinkled onto baked goods.

"Coconut contains the important saturated fatty acids, including lauric acid, caprylic acid, and capric acid. From these three, the monoglyceride of lauric acid called monolaurin has the most antiviral, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties."

Subject: Omega-3 fatty acids and heart health





One of the best ways to give you better heart health is to adopt a diet of healthy fats in place of unhealthy ones. Omega-3 fatty acids are the healthiest fats to put into your body because they lower triglycerides and improve HDL levels. They have other benefits, but studies have shown that having diet high in omega-3s decreases blood pressure and keeps arteries clear. Two servings of fish a week is a great way to get the desired daily amount of this compound, but supplements can also be used.

Key Takeaways:

  • Adoption of heart-healthy lifestyle decreases the risk of coronary heart disease.
  • Heart-healthy unsaturated fats are known as omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids lower triglyceride levels.

"Omega-3 fatty acids lower triglyceride levels and increase high-density lipoprotein (i.e., good cholesterol) levels. They may also decrease platelet aggregation, which can prevent the coronary arteries from occluding"

Nutrition and Food - Tips for Healthy Diet

Subject: Nutrition and Food - Tips for Healthy Diet





To be healthy, it not only takes a healthy diet, but also good eating habits. The healthy diet consists of reasonable amounts of the basic food groups, but not too much salt, sugar and high energy density foods. Your weight is important, too. Lastly, where you eat can be a significant factor in how your body processes nutrients. In front of the TV watching news is not a good idea. For other pointers, please read the article.

Key Takeaways:

  • What is a healthy diet? Is it what we have been lead to believe – milk for strong bones and teeth, protein in the form of lean beef or chicken and maybe a “healthy” microwave dinner if we are “on the go.” A healthy diet contains lots of fruit and vegetables; is based on starchy foods such as wholegrain bread, pasta and rice; and is low in fat (especially saturated fat), salt and sugar.
  • Maintaining a healthy diet is the practice of making choices about what to eat with the intent of improving or maintaining good health. Usually this involves consuming necessary nutrients by eating the appropriate amounts from all of the food groups including an adequate amount of water.
  • Maintain a healthy weight. The weight that’s right for you depends on many factors including your sex, height, age and heredity. Excess body fat increases your chances for high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, some types of cancer and other illnesses. But being too thin can increase your risk for osteoporosis, menstrual irregularities and other health problems.

"Maintain a healthy weight."

Coconut meat is the rich white lining that is contained within the shell of a coconut. Coconut meat can be juicy and tender, or slightly thick and crunchy, to tough and fibrous depending on how long the kernel has been stored. Though coconut only grows in tropical regions of the world, it is now widely available in the American consumer market. And this is a fortunate thing as eating food products derived from coconut like coconut oil and coconut meat on a regular basis has profound positive effects to your overall health.

Is Butter Good Or Bad? Saturated Fat Foods In High-Fat Diet May Boost 'Good' Cholesterol

Subject: Is Butter Good Or Bad? Saturated Fat Foods In High-Fat Diet May Boost 'Good' Cholesterol





We have grown up hearing that we should avoid saturated fats as much as possible. However, the University of Bergen in Norway has recently published a study showing that saturated fats may actually help boost good cholesterol rather than hinder it. The study didn’t find any significant increase in bad cholesterol when patients had a high saturated fat diet. They found that low-fat diets tended to make people want more sweets to compensate. It was actually a high sugar diet that caused a higher risk of cardiovascular death.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nutritional dogma has taught us "saturated fat is bad."
  • But now, researchers at the University of Bergen in Norway suggest that a diet high in saturated fat may boost "good" (HDL) cholesterol.
  • These findings indicate that the overriding principle of a healthy diet is not the quantity of fat or carbohydrates, but the quality of the foods we eat.

"Last month, Harvard University researchers found a five percent higher intake of fats in foods like butter or red meat was linked with a 25 percent increased risk of coronary heart disease."

Subject: Inherited taste perceptions may explain why some people eat too much salt





We all inherit genes of our family line, some of them are not ideal, but we deal with it. Many people have associated taste buds as being inherited, at least the this research studies believes so. We all have a different pallet some us like salt a bit more than others. But what if it was proved that you have inherited your taste perceptions, leading you to add more salt than recommended to your food, which would cause other medical complications.

Key Takeaways:

  • "Genetic factors that influence taste aren't necessarily obvious to people, but they can impact heart health by influencing the foods they select,"
  • In the current study, researchers sought to determine whether that bitter-enhancing genetic variations would also influence other food choices.
  • The study participants with the bitter-enhancing gene variants were no more likely to consume more than the recommended daily amounts of sugar saturated fats or alcohol, all of which can have a negative impact on heart health.

"Genetic differences might help explain why some people like to use a lot of salt on their food."

Subject: Saturated fats and refined sugar linked to brain damage, encourage overeating





You probably already know about the three basic types of food, what they're used for, and how these sources of energy can affect your body. and you probably already know that certain things are bad for you -- like saturated fats and refined sugar. But do you know just how bad for you these two are? In "Saturated fats and refined sugar linked to brain damage, encourage overeating", this article assesses the dangers...

Key Takeaways:

  • For some people, losing weight is a no-brainer – eat less and move more, right? It turns out that if you've been eating a diet full of refined sugar and fat, you could actually be suffering from brain damage that stunts your ability to determine how much you should eat.
  • In a study that was published in Physiology & Behavior, trained rats were granted limited access to low-fat food and then tested on two types of problems – one that tested their memory abilities and learning dependent on the hippocampus, and one that did not.
  • Davidson believes that the damage caused by such a diet does become permanent, although he concedes that he can't say precisely when that occurs. Losing weight, therefore, does not mean that a person will get that lost brain function back.

"When it comes to weight loss, it's important to realize that saturated fats and refined sugar do more than just pack on the pounds."

Subject: Are These Factors Causing Inflammation In Your Body?





Inflammation is caused by a number of factors. For instance, the hormonal changes experienced by women during menopause can cause chronic inflammation. The production of the hormone cortisol during stressful moments can also contribute to inflammation. Some foods are another possible contributor. For instance, polyunsaturated oils like peanut, soybean and corn lead to inflammation. Consuming a diet balanced in omega-3 and omega-6 fats can help balance this out. Inflammation can have negative long-term consequences on the body, so it’s best to consult a doctor and make healthy lifestyle choices.

Key Takeaways:

  • What causes inflammation? Here are a few causes that you may not even realize. If you often suffer from inflammation, the first thing you must check is your diet. Inflammation is also caused by stress and hormonal changes.
  • Polyunsaturated vegetable oils like corn, peanut, soybean and sunflower are some samples of oil which are high in linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid. Unlike omega-3 fatty acids that alleviate inflammation.
  • Red meat has also shown to cause inflammation. Research shows that individuals consuming specific types of red meats suffer from inflammation. There are certain substances present in red meat that are known to cause inflammation.

"Along with other factors, there are certain foods that you consume which might end up causing inflammation. These are regular food items that we have without even realising that they are the cause of inflammation."
