No to Pain Pills and Yes to Safe and Effective Curcumin

Subject: No to Pain Pills and Yes to Safe and Effective Curcumin

Many people turn to over the counter (OTC) drugs when they experience pain, the common ones are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, better known as NSAIDS. The problem with NSAIDS these drugs reduce an enzyme associated with pain called COX-1 and COX-2. There are a lot of hidden dangers behind prescription and OTC pain killers. Some of the most common ones consumed are Ibuprofen an d Acetaminophen.

Ibuprofen: a popular OTC pain reliever can cause stomach pain, nausea, gastric bleeding, ulcers, confusion, hypertension, increased heart attack and stroke. Also, swelling, rapid weight gain, reduced urination, which is a sign of kidney dysfunction, kidney failure, fever, sore throat, headache, rash, bruising, tingling, numbness, muscle weakness, neck stiffness, chills, light sensitivity, and seizures.

Acetaminophen: also known as Tylenol, is classified as an NSAID, but is also unsafe. The number one cause of liver failure in the United States is caused by acetaminophen next to alcohol consumption. If combined with alcohol, the damage to the liver is increased significantly. It also depletes glutathione, an important antioxidant needed by the liver to protect and detoxify the body. Over use of this OTC drug can cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal tenderness, and it can interfere with blood clotting, weaken kidney function, and with severe over dose can cause death.

The alternative: Curcumin is a safe and effective pain reliever

Curcumin is a compound from Turmeric Root, unstandardized turmeric powder contains only two to three percent curcumin. It is important to get a standardized curcumin so that you can get a therapeutic response from consuming this herb. Not all curcumin is the same, look for a brand that blends turmeric essential oil with curcumin to enhance the absorption of the product because the product is hard to absorb.

Curcumin is one of the worlds best studied herbs, it works by reducing a COX-2 response to inflammation the same target as many prescription and OTC drugs that cause organ damage and side effects. Fortunately, Curcumin can target the same in a safe and natural way with no side effects. It can prevent a wide spectrum of inflammatory and oxidative damage, relieve chronic pain as effective and much more safely than drugs like NSAIDs.

Taking OTC or prescription pain relieving drugs are not a long Term solution for pain. With the side effects associated with common pain relievers, one should only take them as a last resort and consider using a safer alternative that is as effective to relieving pain. Terry Naturally offers BCM-95 a patented curcumin that is blended with turmeric essential oils, BCM-95 has been the subject of many clinical studies demonstrating its effectiveness in relieving pain. We at VitaNet offer free shipping on any product in Terry’s brand. If you are struggling with pain, consider trying Terry Naturally to help relieve pain safely.

    Subject: Study identifies a natural preservative in the arjun tree





    Terminalia arjuna has been studied closely by researchers from India and New Zealand. Commonly known as the arjun tree, this plant was used on chevon sausages to test the properties of preservation. The study suggest that the it produced significantly lower values for total plate count, psychrophilic count, yeast and mold count, and free fatty acid values. The results showed an improved lipid oxidative stability and storage quality while refrigerated, thus suggesting that the arjun tree can be a novel natural meat preservative.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Chevon sausages were used as a model in the research and the researchers used various sorts of Terminalia arjuna extracts some in 0.25, 0.50, and 0.75 percent.
    • When the extracts were examined under refrigerated conditions, they looked at the effects on lipid oxidative stability and storage quality parameters.
    • There were lower values in total that were noted during the study for total plate count, psychrophilic count, counts of yeast and mold, and free fatty acid values.

    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: Marijuana found to lower blood flow to the brain: Study authorssuggest this may increase risk of dementia, but this effect also makes itmedicinally useful for epileptics





    Scientific literature on how marijuana works on the body is rapidly expanding. Right now, there are a plethora of studies on how marijuana works on the human brain. Some studies have shown that it can be effective in treating disorders of the brain like epilepsy. Recent tests show that marijuana can increase the risk of dementia because it restricts the flow of blood to the brain. These brain areas are essential for memory development. The area most affected is the hippocampus which can result in Alzheimer’s if prolonged. The researchers for the study used single photo emission computed tomography (SPECT) to measure blood flow to the brain after taking marijuana and they reported that there were very low and abnormal blood flow levels observed. This is when compared with persons who did not take marijuana. 982 patients were selected from a wide variety of data sources that was available to the researchers concerning persons who previously used or were still using marijuana. The results of the study showed that persons taking marijuana were at a risk of dementia due to the low blood flow to their hippocampus.

    Key Takeaways:

    • The author notes that the studies regarding the effect of marijuana is increasing and this is particularly so regarding its effect on the brain.
    • Some recent tests show that it can increase the risk of dementia when marijuana is taken because it reduces the blood flow to the brain.
    • When the researchers used single photon emission computer tomography to analyze blood flow to the brain they observed abnormally low flow to the brain with users of marijuana.

    "Users were analyzed using a brain SPECT and by conducting mental concentration tests against a sample of 100 people who had not used marijuana to determine whether there were significant differences that arose between users and non-users of cannabis."

    Author: Darrell Miller (support@vitanetonline.com)
    Subject: Can aloe vera be used to treat sepsis?





    Aloe vera can be used for plenty of skin conditions, but new evidence suggests it could be used for blood infections, because of the metabolites in the plant. A Chinese and Japanese study looked at this using mice, and found that aloe metabolites suppressed inflammation, due to reduced nitric oxide level. This is important because sepsis harms the body's own tissues and organs, and can be fatal. Aloe also has other uses, such as skin care, warding off cancer, treating digestive issues, and lowering blood sugar levels.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Sepsis though not too common should be seen as a serious condition because it can lead to death or organ failure if the condition is not immediately treated.
    • A team of researchers from China and Japan sought out natural treatment for this disease and found out that aloe vera plant metabolites could be helpful.
    • The trials were conducted in both the laboratory and in animals and the team sought to find out how aloe vera metabolites has anti-inflammatory effects against sepsis.

    "After using various tests to determine inflammation, the Chinese and Japanese research team found that aloe metabolites suppressed the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs). Aloe metabolites also decreased the production of proinflammatory cytokines and nitric oxide."

    Subject: For the men: Multivitamins can keep heart disease at bay





    When one gets insufficient nutrients from the diet, taking multivitamins can be a healthy way to improve this. A recent study has shown that men who take multivitamins a lot are less prone to diseases related to the heart such as stroke and even death related to cardiovascular diseases. But how can cardiovascular diseases be prevented using multivitamins? There are few studies in this direction although a lot of studies have been done on the health benefits of multivitamins. That is why a team of researchers in the US embarked on a study of the incidence of multivitamin usage on major cardiovascular diseases like stroke, heart attack, and cardiovascular death. The study was a long term prospective study. The study was conducted between 1982 and 1995 using 18,530 healthy men that were aged from 40 years and above who the researchers followed. The participants reported their lifestyle habits and as well as their intake of certain foods. Throughout the follow up study, there were only 1,697 reported cases of cardiovascular diseases. This made the researchers to conclude that taking multivitamins means a reduced risk to cardiovascular diseases. It is then appropriate for one to choose the right kind of supplements to improve the diet.

    Key Takeaways:

    • When one suspects that he is not getting the full nutrients that his body needs on a daily basis, taking quality multivitamins is necessary.
    • According to a recent study that was done on multivitamins, men who have taken them for a long time have lower risks of stroke and cardiovascular diseases.
    • Many persons know of the important role of multivitamins in improving and maintaining health, but little research has been done on its role on cardiovascular disease.

    "In conducting the study, the research team followed 18,530 healthy men aged 40 years old or over from 1982 to 1995. The participants were initially enrolled from the Physicians’ Health Study I cohort"

    Subject: Reduce the effects of chemotherapy with safflower seeds





    Chemotherapy which is often shortened to chemo is the use of drugs to eliminate and reduce cancer cells. Because of its systemic effects and ability to kill cancer cells despite the site they are found, it has been widely used in conventional medicine and oncology to fight cancer. But the treatment is not without risks since it can include long term damage to sensitive organs in the body like the lungs, heart, and kidneys. A recent study that was published in the American Journal of Chinese Medicine took a look at the effect of chemotherapy on the kidneys. They studied the effectiveness of safflower seeds against the side effects of cisplatin, a chemotherapy drug used against cancer. They used animal models and compared the effect on damages to the kidneys. Cisplatin is not only used to treat cancer, it is used to prevent the spread of cancer to other parts of the body. It has some side effects which include nausea, vomiting, hair loss, dry skin, and hiccups. It is advisable that pregnant women and breastfeeding women not take it because it can harm the baby. When safflower seeds effect were studied, there were remarkable results discovered leading to the conclusion that safflower seeds were effective in reducing the effects of renal damage caused by cisplatin.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Chemotherapy has a long history and it is often shortened to chemo. It involves the use of drugs in order to kill or remove cancer cells.
    • Chemotherapy is used in oncology and conventional medicine as the primary treatment against cancer because of its systemic effects and its ability to be quick in destroying cancer cells.
    • A study that was published in a Chinese journal looked at the side effects of chemotherapy treatment on the kidneys and ways to reduce the damage.

    "The treatment, despite being touted as “effective against many forms of cancer,” isn’t without risk, which can include both acute and long-term damage to organs like the lungs, heart, nerves, and kidneys."

    Kava kava was found to alleviate anxiety symptoms by a study done at Gran Valley State University in Michigan. The study reported that it was safe if used for less than eight weeks. This medicine can be found in the Pacific and helps the many people suffering phobias and major depressive disorders. Approximately one in fourteen people suffer from some anxiety. The medicine was found to be harmful to the liver, and even toxic if taken longer than eight weeks. It was also found to be more effective for females and younger people. Longer term studies will be done to determine overall safety. In the meantime, other treatments include using skullcap, Valerian root, passion flower and Ashwagandha.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Kava kava is used widely in the pacific to alleviate anxiety and a new study from Grand Valley state University in Michigan has confirmed its effectiveness.
    • In the US about 40 million adults are said to suffer from anxiety disorder and the specific issues range from major depressive disorders to phobias.
    • 11 articles that met the inclusion criteria for kava kava to be effective against anxiety were used in the study by the Michigan researchers.

    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: What is liver cirrhosis? (and is alcohol always the cause of it?)





    Cirrhosis is the advanced scarring of liver tissue. When the liver is injured, it will try repair itself, but this can lead to scarring (a.k.a. fibrosis). Advanced levels of scarring is cirrhosis. Excess drinking is a common cause of liver cirrhosis, but it isn't the only cause. A condition known as Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), actually the most common cause of liver disease in the U.S., can also lead to the disease. People who are overweight are at risk for NAFLD, so maintaining healthy weight is one way to prevent cirrhosis. Avoiding excess alcohol consumption is another. Finally, eating plenty of green leafy vegetables can protect the liver from damage.

    Key Takeaways:

    • One disease that is scary because of its implications is cirrhosis of the liver and it is usually associated with drinking too much alcohol.
    • Some of the factors that can lead to short-term and long-term liver damage include excessive drinking, risky sexual behavior, and injuries like vehicle crashes.
    • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is also a factor in liver cirrhosis and it is estimated that a hundred million Americans have NAFLD.

    "Each time that the liver is injured — whether by disease, excessive alcohol consumption, or fat cells that become toxins — it will try to repair itself."

    Subject: The Differences Between Hemp Seed Oil and Hemp CBD Oil





    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."

    The bone broth diet is something that has become increasingly popular. The diet was developed by Dr. Kellyann Petrucci and was detailed in her diet book on the same subject. The bone broth diet itself is used intermittently with the paleo diet, as an emphasis on consuming whole foods and low amounts of sugar and carbohydrates is necessary for its success. In order to follow the diet a user would consume only the paleo diet for five days and then fast on the other two days of the week.

    Key Takeaways:

    • The bone broth diet consists of cycling between fasting and eating whole foods paired with bone broth for a period of 21 days.
    • Benefits of the bone broth diet include weight loss, healthy skin, improved joint function, and improved gut health.
    • The bone broth diet may not be for everyone, so it is recommended to test out the diet in a 7-day period before beginning the diet.

    There is a protective enzyme within pomegranate that is known scientifically as paraoxonase-1 (PON-1), and it has the ability to block oxidative stress that promote DNA mutations. These DNA mutations are often what lead to a cancer diagnosis. More research determined that not only does pomegranate help block gene mutations, but it can also stop the replication cycle of cancer cells in which they grow at alarming rates. Not only can it help disrupt this cycle, but it can also kill some cells altogether.

    Key Takeaways:

    • The US centers of disease control states that the incidence of cancer is expected to go up by about 24 percent in men and 21 percent in women.
    • There is now the need for more novel and more proactive methods of treating cancer, based on the grim statistics, and pomegranate is one of those promises.
    • Pomegranate benefits does not lie only in the fact that it contains antioxidant polyphenols for combating oxidative stress but also has multiple actions against cancer cells.

    Green tea not only tastes good, but it also has very beneficial health factors. Among these factors includes the fact that it contains catechins, which are polyphenols that are a good barrier to diabetes and stress. These catechins can also help with metabolic syndrome, which is a syndrome that causes people to have higher than normal levels of abdominal fat and a slowed down metabolism. This could potentially lead to lowered rates of obesity when consumed by the public.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Japanese scientists have recently discovered that a component in green tea, catechins, has the ability to improve metabolic syndrome and reduce abdominal fat in the obese and overweight.
    • It is estimated that more than 34 percent of adults in the US suffer from metabolic syndrome and symptoms include abnormal lipid metabolism and abnormal glucose metabolism.
    • Diagnosing metabolic syndrome early on is very important otherwise it could lead to conditions such as the development of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.

    Many people who are concerned in general terms about obesity still have gaps in their knowledge regarding several specific health consequences, according to the Cleveland Clinic Heart Health Survey. The survey indicated that, while most people understand that obesity is bad for cardiac health, they may not appreciate the role of triglycerides or different types of cholesterol. Likewise, relatively few respondents have made major dietary changes to try to lose weight, and my people appear not to understand that even relatively modest weight loss can have significant health benefits.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Although many adults are concerned about having excess weight, they fail to make the connection between excess weight and the risk of developing chronic diseases.
    • According to a cardiologist expert, Luke Laffin, MD, it was surprising from a survey that only 22 percent of respondent had ever talked to their doctor about excess weight.
    • Individuals who have hypothyroidism even before the condition is diagnosed have been observed to have the tendency for excess weight gain.

    Many Coenzyme Q10 products have labels that indicate that their product is better absorbed due to longtime beliefs surrounding ubiquinol (reduced Coenzyme Q10) being hard for the body to absorb. Many brands instead market ubiquinone, which is redox Coenzyme Q10 instead, since studies have been more supportive about this form being easier for the body to absorb. New research, however, is concluding that both of these forms are equal when it comes to the ability to be absorbed through the body.

    The health benefits of spices have long been of interest to scholars. Recently, scientists have discovered that consuming chili has a variety of health benefits, the most important being longevity. In a follow-up of a Chinese study, the University of Vermont discovered that those in their study who ate chili peppers lived longer than those who did not. The researchers attributed these significant results to a compound called capsaicin, which gives the chili pepper its notorious spice. Capsaicin is thought to reduce the risk of heart disease and improve blood flow. While these results are still under investigation, one should still consider adding more spice to their foods to reap their nutritional benefits.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Peppers and spices are not only for eating, but are key to many traditional medicines.
    • Capsaicin, which determines the spiciness of a pepper, reduces cardiovascular disease and kills bad bacteria.
    • Antioxidants are a key component of peppers and spices, and play a big role in being helpful to our bodies.

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

    Key Takeaways:

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

    Subject: Study shows lutein can boost heart health





    Many people consume lutein, either as a supplement in in vegetables containing lutein, because it can provide protection from diseases of the eye. A recent study has shown that lutein can protect the heart as well. Researchers found some correlation between higher levels of lutein in the bloodstream and a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, and metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a medical term for a group of conditions including abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, and high triglycerides. Lutein, a carotenoid, is found in dark, leafy green vegetables.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Carrot and kale contain the carotenoid lutein that is useful for good eye health. But it has been shown that this compound is also good for the heart.
    • Lutein, a carotenoid, can both help protect the eyes and improve eye health, while reducing the risk of developing both cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
    • To carry out their study, the scientists first concentrated on current research on lutein. They gathered 4,377 studies that were narrowed down to 71 most relevant studies.

    "Dr. Elizabeth Leermakers decided to look into “lutein’s positive effects against inflammation and oxidative stresses in the eyes,” and together with a team of researchers, she searched for links between the presence of lutein (or a lack of the carotenoid) and diseases caused by stressors like heart attack, metabolic syndrome, and stroke."

    Subject: Science confirms turmeric as effective as 14 drugs





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

    Key Takeaways:

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

    Researchers from the University of Sfax conducted a study on small nettle to determine it’s antioxidant potential. The small nettle plant can improve nutrition, livelihood, and overall health. It is also rich in flavonoids, fatty acids, and vitamins. Small nettle has already been in use for medicinal purposes as it can serve as a natural remedy for allergies, asthma, and bacterial infections. To conduct the study the researchers used extracts from small nettle leaves and watched for antimicrobial activity. They observed antioxidant activity along with high concentrations of flavonoids and shows that the plants are very important for health applications.

    Key Takeaways:

    • The small nettle and the painful stinging nettle are both relatives because they belong to the genus Urtica and members of the genus have antioxidant potential.
    • There are plants like the small nettle which might have potential for health, nutrition, livelihood, and ecological sustainability but these are very much underutilized.
    • Antioxidants are among the most sought after compounds in plants because they can neutralize harmful free radicals and thereby reduce the risk of cancers.

    A recent study looked at the effects of aspartame on brain functions in rats. The results were impressive. The results showed a direct correlation between the dose of aspartame and the destruction of neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are required for the function of your brain's neurons. The rats who were fed the aspartame had a reduction of Serotonin and an increase in Epinephrine. Epinephrine is associated with your flight or fight reactions. This study reminds us that although an ingredient might be approved by the FDA, it could have long term effects.

    Key Takeaways:

    • In this study on the effects of aspartame on the brain, rats were fed aspartame for 10-40 days then they were decapitated and the brains analyzed.
    • The study found that there was a relationship between the consumption of aspartame and the destruction of neurotransmitters that was dependent on the dose given.
    • The result was that aspartame significantly reduces important neurotransmitters in the brain while increasing aggressively the chemicals that initiate a fight or flight reaction.

    Studies have shown that eating a high fiber diet may reduce food allergies. Researchers bred a group of mice to obtain an artificial peanut allergy and fed them a high fiber diet to produce healthy gut bacteria. They gave the bacteria to mice with no allergy then exposed them to peanuts. The results were that the mice exposed had a less severe response to the allergen. One researcher's theory was that consumption of fiber promote the regulation of T-cells thus promoting that the bacteria has a healthy, anti-inflammatory system to thrive in. The study ultimately determined that there is a connection between allergies and proper gut bacteria health.

    Key Takeaways:

    • A study published in Cells Reports found a link between gut bacteria and food allergies.

CBD oil is becoming more and more prevalent in treating psychological symptoms without the psychoactive effects that marijuana has. Industry leaders suspect that this bill passing is the first step in the CBD industry ultimately exploding.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Since 1970, hemp has had the black label on the Schedule 1 drug. But recently, congress gave it its freedom and legalized it.
    • Despite the passing of the bill on hemp, the status of CBD by the food and drug administration is as an illegal substance.
    • Hemp does not take much to grow. It requires little water, is excellent for the soil and does not require pesticides.

    "At any rate, the passing of the Farm Bill is sure to have implications on the growing CBD industry."

    New research from Penn State University has shown that being in a negative mood can be linked with higher levels of inflammation and may be a signal of poor health. Inflammation is a contributing factor to many diseases such as diabetes and cancer. These negative emotions include sadness, anger, and depression. 220 participants reported on their moods and blood samples were taken to measure the inflammation present in the body. This was the first study to research how the two are linked. The long-term goal of the researchers is that the information will eventually lead to insights into how interventions can improve mood and ability to cope with stress. That will in turn help break the cycle of disease associated with inflammation.

    Key Takeaways:

    • This study involved 220 participants and was carried out by researchers from Penn State University. Participants were required to record their mood five times a day.
    • Apart from recording negative or positive moods, blood samples were also taken from the participants to measure the levels of C-reactive proteins and 7 inflammatory cytokines.
    • According to the study there was a relationship found between moods and levels of inflammatory biomarkers. The more negative the mood, the higher the levels of inflammatory biomarkers.

    The Institute of Medicine has historically recommended the average individual taking in 20 ng/mL of vitamin D each day, but now studies are showing that this may be much lower than what our daily intake should consist of. Researchers at UC San Diego recently preformed a case study that showed patients who took in 48 ng/mL of vitamin D each day were shown to reduce their cancer risk by up to 67%. These staggering results show that the Institute of Medicine may have to redetermine their daily guidelines.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Researchers have published the results of some studies that shows that optimal levels of Vitamin D, like 48 ng/mL, can lower one’s risk of having cancer.
    • The institute of medicine has been recommending a level of 20 ng/mL for years but this study found that it was not close to the optimal.
    • In fact, higher levels of sun exposure in one’s lifetime, as seen in southern latitudes, reduce one’s risk of having breast cancer.
