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





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

Key Takeaways:

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

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

Subject: 14 vitamins help manage fibromyalgia





Fibromyalgia is a widespread medical condition and everyday new vitamins and supplements are discovered that can help alleviate it. Fibromyalgia causes pain and depression. Its pain is usually felt in the musculoskeletal system. It also causes depression in the brain and many other symptoms. That is why very few therapies have been discovered to use for treating this condition. Supplements are being recommended to patients. Some of them are essential oils that can help with pain relief and improving sleep, energy boosters that increase the level of energy in the body, and fish oils that can reduce the inflammation it causes. Fibromyalgia can be triggered by a deficiency in some minerals in the body, so one needs to avoid this. The essential vitamins and minerals that are needed in the body to prevent fibromyalgia are calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, and vitamin D. Therefore, one needs to take active measures to have these essential vitamins and minerals in his body to prevent fibromyalgia. They are very important, especially increasing the intake of Vitamin D through sunlight.

Key Takeaways:

  • Supplementing with vitamins and minerals is critical in controlling the pain and depression associated with fibromyalgia.
  • Vitamin D supplementation is generally recommended in fibromyalgia patients, especially those that are menopausal or pre-menopausal.
  • According to Korean researchers, low levels of magnesium, calcium, and manganese are related to fibromyalgia.

"Everyday vitamins and minerals take on a whole new level of importance if a person is afflicted with fibromyalgia."

Up to a billion people worldwide may not be getting enough vitamin D, and this is a real problem because vitamin D deficiency can increase the risk of cancer, obesity and other health problems. Meta-analysis published by Current Pharmaceutical Design suggests that getting enough vitamin D can decrease fasting glucose and reduce insulin resistance. Vitamin D can also help moderate your bad cholesterol, as well as reducing your levels of C-reactive protein, which is a sign of inflammation.

Key Takeaways:

  • One health problem around the world that is affecting a lot of people is the fact that Vitamin D insufficiency or deficiency is becoming more pronounced.
  • When one is deficient in Vitamin D, some of the health problems that can be encountered are poor glycemic control, obesity, and hypertension.
  • A link has been found between vitamin D deficiency and diabetes and also another study found that the deficiency leads to high blood sugar levels.

"Three of the most significant risk factors for heart disease are high cholesterol, chronic inflammation, and insulin resistance. Researchers wanted to learn more about whether vitamin D supplementation is a way to lower the risk of heart disease or reduce complications in patients who already have it."

Subject: Zinc supplementation can benefit individuals with erectiledysfunction, reveals study





Researchers recommend men having erectile dysfunction to be taking diets and supplements rich in zinc. This is because it has been discovered that the element can improve the proper functioning of the penis. Erectile dysfunction comes about when a man is unable to have and sustain an erection. It is often attributable to chronic health problems like hypertension or a consequence of stress disorders like depression. The treatment for erectile dysfunction takes two conventional approaches. One approach is to concentrate on the health issue that caused the problem. But the drawback of this approach is that it takes time and effort. The other approach is using drugs that will help to start and sustain an erection. One of such drugs is Viagra. The drawback of approaches using drugs is that these drugs can have unwanted side effects. But natural supplements such as horny goat weed and vitamin D supplements have also been found effective in treating erectile dysfunction. It has been found that people who are deficient in zinc are more prone to changes in their physiology and can easily get erectile dysfunction. It can also result in weakening of the immune system. That is why zinc is recommended for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. By the way, it is low risk and high reward form of treatment.

Key Takeaways:

  • When a man has erectile dysfunction, doctors suggest that he takes adequate amounts of zinc in the diet because it can restore the proper functioning of the penis.
  • Two treatment approaches exist for erectile dysfunction and one approach is to treat the health problem that caused the problem in the first place.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs like Viagra that can be used to treat erectile dysfunction are not very good for the body because they often cause side effects.

"It is often a secondary effect of either chronic health problems like hypertension or stress disorders such as depression."

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





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

Key Takeaways:

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

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

Subject: Omega-3s found to help those suffering from PTSD





New Japanese research suggests that omega-3 fatty acids may help mitigate one of the major psychophysiological symptoms of PTSD: a racing, pounding heart. The researchers divided over 80 survivors of major accidents into a control group and a group that received supplementary omega-3s. The omega-3 group had lower resting heart rates and also lower heart rates after being subjected to imagery related to their accidents. Omega-3s play an important role in brain health and neurological functions, and have already displayed potential utility in the treatment of depression.

Key Takeaways:

  • After a person has witnessed or experienced a traumatic event, he could get the condition called post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) which is a mental health condition.
  • People who have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often experience symptoms such as a pounding heart and doctors have discovered that omega-3 fatty acids could help them.
  • To determine if fatty acids could help traumatic event survivors, the researchers in Japan recruited 83 persons who have such events and gave them fatty acid supplements.

Subject: Beta-alanine supplementation relieves fatigue, increases musclecarnosine





It has been found in a study that supplementing with beta-alanine can increase muscle carnosine and relieve fatigue. The study was published in the journal Nutrition Research and the team looked at the effects of beta-alanine supplementation on performance, L-histidine, and muscle carnosine in both women and men. This confirms earlier studies that supplementing with beta-alanine increases muscle carnosine, therefore improving the capacity of the muscles to buffer during intense exercise. The research team emphasized their comparison on the differences between women and men, and recruited 26 men and women who were given a placebo or beta-alanine for 28 days. It was shown that beta-alanine really increased muscle carnosine but the differences between men and women were unclear.

Key Takeaways:

  • The University of Central Florida researchers have made a study and in the study they suggested that supplementing with beta-alanine can relieve fatigue.
  • The focus of the study that was published in the journal Nutrition Research was whether supplementing with beta-alanine has an effect on performance, muscle carnosine, and L-histidine.
  • Studies that were done earlier before this one has shown that supplementation with beta-alanine increases the intramuscular carnosine content and improves buffering capacity in intense exercises.

"The findings of the study suggested that supplementing with beta-alanine for 28 days can increase muscle carnosine and relieve fatigue in men and women, but did not reduce muscle L-histidine."

With the increasing popularity of legalizing marijuana and CBD, along with many sates’ hopes of doing so, it will be imperative for the general public to understand the differences between Hemp Seed Oil and CBD oil. Becky Garrison has compiled a short recap on why consumers need to pay attention to the letters CBD when shopping. Hemp as a general term is more focused on skin care routines, vitamin supplementation and household products, CBD would help more with medical ailments such as pain and anxiety.

Key Takeaways:

  • Hemp seed oil is pressed from the hemp plant's seeds, much like sunflower oil.
  • If you want high quality CBD, it is extracted from the flowers of female-only hemp plants.
  • Hemp seeds do have a number of nutritional benefits, such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and vitamins A and E.

"Due to this confusion in which "hemp seed oil" is often mistakenly called "hemp oil," consumers should check the label to ensure they are purchasing the correct product for their needs. If you're looking for CBD, hemp seed oil isn't what you want; and if you're looking for hemp-based products for their nutritional content, then you may be disappointed in a hemp oil CBD product."

It is common knowledge that omega-3s can promote heart health, but now studies are showing that they can also help children who are suffering from behavioral disorders. A study was published within the Journal of Dietary Supplements that showed kids aged six to twelve showed great improvement in regards to their overall health status and quality of life when they were given doses of omega-3s on a regular basis. The study evaluated exactly 942 children, so the findings are quite consistent.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although Omega-3 fatty acids are well known for their health benefits on the heart, a recent study has shown that it gives good results on mental health.
  • When Omega-3 fatty acids was used on children with behavioral disorders, it was found that it helped improve their mental health and quality of life.
  • 942 children in Spain with behavioral disorders were used for the study and they were given omega-3 fatty acids for a three month period.

"To evaluate the effectiveness of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation, the researchers used the Kidscreen-10 and the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaires (SDQ). The SDQ examines 25 positive and negative attributes, which are divided among five scales: emotional symptoms, conduct problems, hyperactivity or inattention, peer relationship problems, and prosocial behavior."

While we don't what causes Alzheimer's disease, new research from Arizona State University points to choline as a promising treatment for the condition. When mice consumed large amounts of choline, they showed positive improvements in spatial memory. Furthermore, these positive benefits were evident in their offspring, even though they did not supplement directly with choline. Researchers believe that choline helps to control brain inflammation and neuron death, processes that both contribute to Alzheimer's. Experts recommend that adults take 550 milligrams of choline daily for optimal brain health

Key Takeaways:

  • Although modern medicine has made advancement in several areas, there are some conditions that it is still trying to control without success and one of them is Alzheimer’s.
  • Although there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s, recent research from the Arizona State University shows that choline has some promise.
  • Mice who were bred to exhibit symptoms of Alzheimer’s were used in the research and promising results were obtained when these mice were fed high amount of choline.

Subject: Happier and healthier: Curcumin-rich turmeric can help easedepression and anxiety, researchers find





Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, can have benefits for mental health on top of its many benefits for cardiac and joint health and inflammation. Curcumin is believed to help reduce neuroinflammation — and the cytokines that help cause it — and moderate cortisol levels within the brain, while achieving more balanced levels of dopamine and serotonin. These actions may explain why a 2015 study indicates that turmeric supplementation can substantially improve the effectiveness of antidepressants in many people.

Key Takeaways:

  • The main compound form in turmeric, curcumin, has been found to help in many types of ailments that range from diabetes, to cancer and inflammation.
  • Curcumin makes turmeric a superfood by adding aiding in mental health to the list of health benefits that it can be used to cure for.
  • Australian researchers have found that curcumin can help in curing depression and anxiety when they involved 123 participants in a curcumin treatment and a placebo.

"Curcumin regulates levels of dopamine and serotonin in the brain, and it also decreases the markers of neuroinflammation, which is significant when you consider that inflammation contributes to mood disorders."

Researchers located in Australia and Iran tested 143 men who were facing infertility in order to see if consumption of omega-3 fatty acids could improve their fertility rates. The docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) that is naturally introduced to the body through omega-3 fatty acids was shown to significantly increase fertility levels in the men who engaged in routine consumption, and it also supplemented their levels of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), which is also directly related to adequate fertility rates.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers in both Australia and Iran while working on omega-3 fatty acids and their relation to fertility found that Omega-3 fatty acids significantly improved sperm motility in infertile men.
  • Some of the effects the researchers looked at is on docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) supplementation on total sperm concentration and sperm motility.
  • From the treatments carried out on infertile men, they found that there was no effect on sperm concentrations or sperm DHA due to the administration period.

"In conducting the review, they investigated three studies on the supplementation of DHA or EPA, either alone or in combination with other micronutrients, in a total of 147 infertile men. The studies also involved 143 infertile men who belonged to the control group or did not receive any omega-3 fatty acid supplement."

Subject: Study confirms the healing potential of black cumin for asthmaticpatients





A recent Annals of Saudi Medicine article suggests that black cumin can have significant benefits for the respiratory health of people with asthma. Researchers from Saudi Arabia’s Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University conducted a clinical trial involving 76 asthma patients. They supplemented the patients’ maintenance inhaler regimens with either one gram or two grams of black cumin, or else a placebo. Subsequent evaluation found that those who had received any amount of black cumin supplementation saw better improvement in lung function relative to those who did not receive any.

Key Takeaways:

  • A study published in the “Annals of Saudi Medicine” suggests that taking black cumin along with regular maintenance inhaler therapy is effective for people with asthma.
  • Asthma, which is caused by chronic inflammation in the lungs, is incurable and causes recurring periods of wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing.
  • The researchers who used about seventy-six participants for the study examined how black cumin has an effect on inflammation of the airways and airflow restriction in asthmatic patients.

"Research suggests that black cumin, also known as Nigella sativa, can help people with asthma."

Subject: What Is Vitamin A Good For? It Turns Out a Lot of Things





Vitamin A has numerous health benefits, and is a nutrient that most people already get a sufficient amount of. Vitamin A is found in meats, eggs, seafood, fruits and vegetables. Vitamin A helps your eyesight. However, too much Vitamin A can actually cause blurred vision. Vitamin A is also known for helping your skin via retinoids. It also helps your immune system. Some studies have linked Vitamin A with a lower risk of cancer, although the science is not conclusive.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many persons in the developed world need not worry about their intake of vitamin A because they already get enough from their diet.
  • The World Health Organization doesn’t recommend supplementation for anyone living in countries like America because people already eat the things that contain it like eggs and meat.
  • Vitamin A deficiency results in eyesight issues and this is very well demonstrated in developing countries where supplementation is being proposed.

"But even if you don't have to worry about getting enough vitamin A in your diet, it's still important to know what it does in the body — here's what we know about it."

High impact and strenuous training or lifestyle takes its toll on the body. One area that has a highly impacted rate of declined performance is that of the immune system. Lower immune system function can happen not only with the physical stress of training , work outs or lifestyle, but mental stress as well. Chorella is a micro marine algae that has several minerals and vitamins that help to repair the system as well as act as a detoxification vehicle.

Key Takeaways:

  • According to a study published in the European Journal of Nutrition, chlorella can speed up recovery from intense training and exercise, thereby stabilizing the immune system.
  • 26 people with average ages of 29 were evaluated for the study. They were given chlorella for four weeks and at the end asked to do intensive exercises.
  • The study showed that the participants who took chlorella had increased levels of salivary sIgA while those in the placebo group who didn’t take it showed no significant changes.

"Researchers in England aimed to evaluate the effects of chlorella supplementation on salivary sIgA in response to a two-day intensive training exercise."

Subject: Omega-3 supplementation lessens symptoms of depression in peoplewith chronic heart failure





A study based in America called "Journal of the American College of Cardiology" has recently released information that points to how omega-3 fatty acids have the ability to improve health outlooks for those suffering from chronic cardiovascular failure known as congestive heart failure. Regular consumption of omega-3 fatty acids have not only shown to positively contribute to remedying cardiovascular issues, but it has also shown to reduce stress, depression, and other psychological issues that many patients face.

Key Takeaways:

  • The condition wherein the heart fails to sufficiently pump blood is called chronic heart failure and is a result of the accumulation of excess fats in the arteries.
  • Many people are now suffering from chronic heart failure because their lifestyle which involves fast food, stress, and sedentary lifestyle contributes to this.
  • The prevalence of chronic heart failure is worrisome because its existence increases the risk of other conditions such as depression, kidney, or liver damage.

"Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for overall health, are now associated with improved symptoms of depression in patients with chronic heart failure."

Subject: A form of vitamin E derived from annato can lessen your risk ofbone loss due to diabetes





Tocotrienols, a chemical grouping that belongs to the vitamin E family, has been shown by research to have efficacy in reducing blood sugar levels and inhibiting bone loss. The most recent research came in the form of two studies, both of which made use of a tropical fruit, known as the annato. A pre-diabetic state and osteoporosis was induced in rodent subjects for both of the studies. One of the studies, conducted in Malaysia, showed that the rodent subjects had better parameters for a number of metabolic syndrome indicators, such as fasting blood glucose and triglycerides. In the case of the Malaysian study, the rodents either received a dose of tocotrienols commensurate with normal human supplementation or a diet stripped of tocotrienols. A Texas-based research study compared the tocotrienols with Metformin, a commonly prescribed diabetic medicine. Results showed that the tocotrienols in higher doses was better than the medicine in instituting bone growth. A third study, also in Malaysia, used human subjects with type 2 diabetes. Markers for the human subjects were also improved for the subjects that consumed tocotrienols.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are so many people in the world today that are suffering from diabetic disorders.
  • Understanding how to use vitamins to combat your disease is a great method to use.
  • You should do everything in your power to reduce the risk of losing density in your bones as you get older.

"Studies have shown that tocotrienols may help inhibit bone loss and regulate blood sugar levels. The tocotrienols used in the studies were derived from the red-orange tropical fruit known as annatto."

Subject: From OCD to depression to anxiety, learn how inositol can preventmany mental health disorders





Living at maximum wellness constitutes more than having a disease-free body, where all the parts are doing what they should. Mental health is also a key component to overall health. From PMS symptoms all the way to psychotic episodes, more than 40 million U.S. citizens suffer from a mental problem yearly. Although treating these potentially life-clouding conditions with pharmaceutical grade interventions is the norm, these interventions are not without the possibility of potentially hazardous side effects. A B vitamin, inositol is present in the human brain in large amounts. Scientists are considering whether significant supplementation of the vitamin might be a way to treat an array of mental conditions naturally and without side effects. The vitamin has already been shown to have positive effect in some mental conditions, which makes sense, as significant neural transmissions depend on the use of the vitamin. Moreover, it's also been shown that individuals with lesser amounts of the mood-regulating chemicals, serotonin and dopamine, have lower levels of inositol. Although more research needs to happen in some instances, there is promising research to suggest that elevating inositol levels could prove efficacious for an array of mental conditions, including panic attacks, bipolar mood disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and depression.

Key Takeaways:

  • Scientists have been using inositol to treat people who suffer from mental illnesses and shown to be effective.
  • Studies have shown that people with metal illnesses have less inositol in their brains.
  • If considering increasing inositol, certain foods like beans, whole grains, citrus fruits and nuts contain significant amounts of inositol.

"In fact, other major neurotransmitters depend on inositol to relay messages, making it a key component in a lot of chemical systems in a person’s brain, including the ability to handle stress, learning and cognition, mood, productivity, sleep, and addiction."

Bifidobacterium Lactis: The Bacterium That Could Help You Lose Weight & Fight Inflammation

The probiotic Bifidobacterium lactis, or B. lactis, is a powerhouse for gut health. Why is this strain of bacteria so important? One study published in 2015 showed that B. lactis could improve unpleasant and painful symptoms associated with poor gut motility, dysbiosis, and GI hypersensitivity. B. lactis is definitely one of the “good guys” of the gut bacteria world because it contributes to a healthy and balanced microbiome, which positively affects balanced blood sugar and optimal weight maintenance.

Key Takeaways:

  • While probiotics are ingested live organisms that are good for gut health, a prebiotic is food that helps these organisms thrive.
  • Bifidobacterium lactis in fermented milk is good for gut health because it improves gastrointestinal symptoms and well-being.
  • Oral health is tied to gut health in intricate ways. Studies with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has shown this truth.

"A particular strain of B. lactis, known as HN019, has been shown to have a significant impact on those with metabolic syndrome. This probiotic had beneficial effects on inflammation, nitric oxide metabolites, and antioxidant measurements, and the authors of the study stated that if their results are confirmed, supplementation with this probiotic should be considered further."

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

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

Key Takeaways:

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

Shaklee, an American company puts out a product called "Alfalfa Complex." A byproduct of the complex is an alfalfa flour, which was used as a testing source by the researchers. The researchers found the flour to be an ample source of protein and amino acids. Specific minerals found in the flour included, zinc, calcium and iron, magnesium and phosphorus. Alfalfa has also been found to ameliorate the risk for many diseases. It aids circulation and anemia, protects against arteriosclerosis, and strengthens overall immunity. Besides flour, supplementation with alfalfa is possible via powder, capsules and pills.

Key Takeaways:

  • Alfalfa can be consumed in the form of tablets, capsules, or even a powder.
  • The beneficial components of alfalfa are even more enriched when it is paired with vitamin C.
  • Alfalfa has the ability to help the body combat various digestive tract disorders.

Vitamin D is so important researchers worry about ethics of limiting supplementation to perform research trials

In order to effectively study vitamin defriciencies, many pharmaceutical agencies hold controlled studies that are overlooked by medical physicians. These are typically done by giving some participants the vitamin supplement, while others get a placebo. In the case of vitamin D, however, experts are labeling studies to be unethical because of the potential damage that participants could face if they become deficient while on the placebo due to their vitamin D levels dramatically dropping to an unsafe level.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many researchers view Vitamin D as so important to overall health that they are concerned about the ethics around limiting D supplementation specifically for research.
  • According to Dr. Leigh Frame of George Washington University School of Medicine, denying someone deficient in vitamin D could cause both long- and short-term health problems.
  • One solution to this dilemma would be to allow vitamin D studies but to monitor all participant’s D levels and provide the placebo group a rescue repletion at the completion of the study.

"In case you needed any more proof of how essential vitamin D is to good health, researchers have warned that placebo-controlled trials that involve limiting some people’s intake of the all-star nutrient could be considered unethical."

Osteoporosis And What You Should Know About Bone Health

The skeleton, the body's framework, changes as we age, as does the body's capacity to grow new bone. When the body experiences too much bone loss. When the body can not grow new bone, or when both happenstances are concurrent, the resulting condition is called osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis is not considered curable. But it's progression can be slowed or halted, thereby preventing more bone loss, leading to injury and even death.

There are diagnostic processes that can assess bone damage, even predict the likelihood of damage based on bone mineralization. Once damage is diagnosed and need assessed a treatment plan consisting of diet a regimen and supplementation, augmented by exercise and possibly medication can be implemented.

Key Takeaways:

  • In the U.S. alone, more than forty million individuals aged fifty and older are diagnosed with low bone mass, or osteoporosis.
  • Osteoporosis is a quiet condition, often evincing no symptoms until a bone breaks.
  • A bone mineral density test can identify how susceptible a person is to osteoporosis and is recommended for those over sixty.

"Osteoporosis is a bone disease that occurs when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone, or both."

It has been studied and proven that increasing your consumption of Omega-3's can greatly reduce your chance of Heart Attacks and or heart disease as well as Stroke. Many people do not eat enough of Omega-3's which cause a nutrition gap in the population. One of the easiest ways to increase you Omega-3 intake is to eat more fish and seafood. You can also find Omega-3's present in some plant based nutrition as well. Some examples are Brussels Sprouts, Walnuts and Chia Seeds.

Key Takeaways:

  • If people want to increase their consumption of Omega-3's they can simply eat more fish and seafood
  • For people that prefer vegan or vegetable diets Brussels Sprout, Chia Seeds and Walnuts have good amounts of Omega-3
  • Increasing Omega-3 in your diet can reduce the chances of heart attacks and strokes

"The benefits of such omega-3 fatty acid supplementation over periods of up to five years (often in the range of 900 to 3,000 mg of EPA/DHA daily) against myocardial infarction and cardiac death appear to be particularly evident in those with a history of cardiovascular disease (CVD)."

There need to be more studies on this subject now because we need to know which health conditions would respond the best to it. Scientific studies do well when they have a diverse group of test subjects with different conditions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Taking the supplement Chlorella has been shown to have benefits on health, seemingly more so on sick and/or malnourished individuals.
  • Chlorella has a type of fiber that binds to fat and as such lowers the absorption of Cholesterol.
  • Just because there appears to be benefits, researchers haven't concluded if Chlorella is the sole cause, but it looks good.

The question has been raised and it asks if we should be buying iodized salt. There have been tests done that have come to the conclusion that were are sufficient in the United States, when it comes to our iodine consumption. Most people from America get enough iodine, even if they do not use any iodized salt in their meals. They have a very small risk for having an iodine deficiency, which can lead to them getting goiters.

Key Takeaways:

  • While statistics indicate that most US citizens are iron sufficient, some pregnant women are at risk and could need supplementation.
  • Though iodine is used in some cow feeds and as a wash for cow udders, the concentration is considered mild and harmless.
  • An unlikely source of iodine, dairy, exists, because iodine is present in soil, which yields grass, in turn consumed by cows and therefore present in milk.

"Most Americans who eat a varied diet get enough iodine even if they don’t use iodized salt. They are at little risk of iodine deficiency, which can lead to goiters (swollen thyroid glands in the neck) and dwarfism and is a leading cause of mental impairment worldwide."

Consuming healthful levels of magnesium has been linked to disease prevention, reducing the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. While it is estimated that many Americans are magnesium deficient, supplementation with magnesium is discouraged without advice from a health care provider. Fortunately, a balanced diet is enough to meet the average healthy individual’s magnesium needs. Quinoa and pumpkin seeds are examples of food high in magnesium. For a more decadent dose, try a serving of a high percentage dark chocolate.

Key Takeaways:

  • Half of Americans are at nutritional risk from low Magnesium intake, a problem that is worse with older citizens, who have a less varied diet.
  • Nuts, grains and legumes are easy ways to get the essential nutrient from foods.
  • Food sources are best, because supplements can inhibit drugs and potentially have adverse reactions.

"However, digestive disorders such as Crohn’s disease or celiac disease can affect the ability to absorb magnesium, and people who have type 2 diabetes or take diuretics may lose more magnesium than normal through their urine."

Cases of dry eyes have become increasingly prevalent. There are many prescription and over-the-counter medicines out there that can help with the condition, but can simply supplementing certain vitamins help? Vitamins A, C, E, and thiamine have all been shown to help prevent cataracts and macular degeneration, but not much research has been done on something as simple as dry eyes. While there is no proof that any particular vitamin can prevent dry eyes, vitamins A, D, and omega-3 fatty acids may help. You should always talk to your doctor before starting any supplementation.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dry eye syndrome is a common condition that occurs when the eyes do not make enough tears, or if the tears vanish too quickly. There are many treatments for dry eyes.
  • Can vitamins help prevent or treat dry eyes? We find out. If an individual has a healthy balanced diet, they should be able to get all the vitamins and minerals they need from their diet. However, some people may need to take a supplement if advised by their doctor.
  • Eye health and vitamins: Links between vitamins and minerals and eye health are emerging, but there are currently no clear answers, and more research is needed.

"People should be skeptical about any vitamin, mineral, and herbal supplements that claim to treat dry eye syndrome."

Fiber is important for the body. It helps keep our digestion regular. It can be found in foods and there are also supplements you can take. They contribute to weight loss and lower blood sugar in adults according to the study mentioned here. This would help out diabetics and others.

Key Takeaways:

  • They conducted a study on fiber supplementation’s effects on weight management – with randomized trials in three, six and 12-months durations involving three groups of overweight and obese individuals, ages 19-68 years old.
  • Findings revealed that total cholesterol levels were “significantly lower in the PGX group at after the three and six months compared to baseline records.” The cholesterol levels were also lower in the PSY group at three and six months compared to the participants’ baseline measurements.
  • High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol – also known as the ‘good cholesterol’ were lower in the PSY group at three months compared to baseline, but higher in the PGX group after 12 months of supplementation compared to that of the control group.

"Researchers think that the high viscosity of PGX might have caused participants to decrease their food intake, which then lead to significant weight loss, lipid, insulin, and glucose reductions."
