Subject: The evidence is undeniable: Green leafy Vegetables take the prizewhen it comes to protecting eye health





One consequence of glaucoma is vision loss or blindness. It is estimated that leafy green vegetables like kale, broccoli and other vegetables are full of minerals and vitamins that prevent diseases like diabetes and heart disease. The question the author wants to answer is whether these leafy vegetables can help in preventing glaucoma. The conclusion of the author is that there is a link between leafy green vegetables and prevention of glaucoma. In fact, it can help prevent the disease. This conclusion was based on a recent study that was conducted by researchers at the Harvard Medical school. Glaucoma is a eye disease that can affect one’s vision leading to vision loss progressively. The common glaucoma is primary open-angle glaucoma. It leads to vision loss without any symptoms or sign. It is estimated that three million Americans are affected with glaucoma and 120,000 people will lose their sight due to having glaucoma. But why is glaucoma produced? This is due to an imbalance in the drainage of the aqueous humor. The researchers analyzed people’s diet and came to the conclusion that leafy green vegetables should be used as a treatment option.

Key Takeaways:

  • Eating more green, leafy vegetables can assist in decreasing the risk of developing glaucoma.
  • A key to why these vegetables are effective is that they help with blood flow near the optic nerve.
  • These vegetables also help with lowering other diseases like those that affect the heart and diabetes.

"The study was published in the Journal of American Medical Association Ophthalmology, and it was conducted by researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School."

Subject: Broccoli is a powerful anti-aging food that you should be eatingevery day





Broccoli is loaded with anti-aging ingredients such as antioxidants and collagen. Broccoli is known for its nutrition as it is packed with vitamins A and C as well as calcium and iron. The body uses vitamin C to produce collagen, which affects the outward appearance of people. The plant's antioxidants can work as an anti-inflammatory for the body, and they also get rid of free radicals which helps lessen the risks of oxidation in your cells and tissues.

Key Takeaways:

  • Broccoli is a superfood that contains antioxidant and collagen to prevent aging.
  • Collagen maintains your hair, skin, and nails and requires a lot of Vitamin C, which is one of the main nutrients in broccoli.
  • For the maximum amount of Vitamin C, you should eat raw broccoli, or steam cook it if you want it hot.

"A member of the cruciferous vegetable family, broccoli is completely edible from the crowded clusters of dark green florets at its top to the very tip of its stem. It provides a lot of nutrition, being filled with vitamin A and vitamin C, and containing large amounts of calcium and iron."

Can sulforaphane help children with autism?

Subject: Can sulforaphane help children with autism?





Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli have enormous amounts of sulforaphane. Research has even shown that when this compound is taken in large quantities, it can help alleviate the problem of autism in children. Autism is a very important consideration because it affects about one in ten children right now; this is according to experts. New cases are also increasing worldwide. The author states that the recent increases in autism reporting is due to the fact that vaccination schedules in children are increasing and vaccines deliver toxins to the child which can damage the nervous system. Sulforaphane though has been shown to be a chemical that can help in alleviating autism in children even after they have been vaccinated. The research was carried out by scientists at the John Hopkins University who found out that eating foods that have enormous amounts of sulforaphane can help autistic children by enhancing their social skills, verbal communication ability, and their general behavior. The compound, sulforaphane, acts through activating the genes that shield the cells from inflammation, damage to the genetic material, oxidative stress, and other factors that are linked to autism. The study was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sulforaphane is a compound that is found in large amounts in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and recent research shows it can help children with autism.
  • The latest estimates on the effects of autism on children shows that the condition now affects about one out of every forty-five children.
  • The rapidly increasing spike in autism cases in children is linked to the increased rate of vaccination in children where the toxins affect their nervous system.

"The results of their experiment showed that the sulforaphane group demonstrated considerable improvements in social behavior by the time of the fourth week of treatment."

If you are losing hair faster than normal, you could be biotin deficient. Biotin is also known as Vitamin B7 and supports the health and growth of hair and nails. Nuts, sweet potatoes and dark leafy vegetables are all rich in Biotin. Onions also have biotin. The best source of biotin is actually animal liver. If you cannot eat liver, consider eggs instead. Three eggs a day will provide your daily requirement of Biotin without the taste of liver.

Key Takeaways:

  • People who suffer from a deficiency of biotin are in that small group of people who frequently lose their hair more than usual.
  • Certain food groups have been found to contain large quantities of biotin and people who are low in it can take these food to increase their levels.
  • As a person grows older, the minimum level of biotin he needs to have in his body rises and for a typical adult it is 30 micrograms.

"Also known as vitamin B7, biotin supports the healthy growth of hair, skin, and nails."

Subject: Eat (or drink) your Vegetables: Make smoothies to maximize the lutein in spinach





Spinach, one of the healthiest vegetables available, and it contains a high amount of lutein. The best way to get this lutein is to blend it in a smoothie or add it to a green juice. Because lutein is fat-soluble and stored in the immune cells, the researchers for this study were looking for ways to boost lutein levels in the blood and take advantage of its many health benefits. The research team that came from Sweden used Spinach to understand this process and they processed spinach in various ways, examining various heating and steaming methods to best bolster lutein content in spinach. They found that heating makes spinach to lose its lutein content and the more it is boiled, the more lutein that is lost. They found that the best way to consume spinach to preserve its lutein content is to take it cold. Therefore that is why adding spinach to smoothies is recommended for maximum consumption of lutein in spinach.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dark green vegetables contain abundant quantities of lutein and this natural fat-soluble pigment can be used to fight inflammation in immune cells for people with coronary heart disease.
  • It has also been found that lutein can be stored in immune cells which means one can have a reserve or store of lutein in the body.
  • The research team wanted to find out which method of cooking makes lutein in spinach most available and they fried, steamed, and boiled the spinach for several minutes.

"There are many different ways of preparing spinach, but a recent study suggests that blending it in a smoothie or adding it to your green juice is the best way to maximize its lutein content."

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."

Fiber is very important to our heart and digestive health. Recent New Zealand research showed that people with low fiber diets had significantly higher risk of heart disease, diabetes and colon cancer than people who get plenty of it from whole grains, fruit and vegetables. Separately, American research indicates that a high fiber diet may enhance the growth of beneficial strains of gut bacteria while helping to fight inflammation. This is important because chronic inflammation is a key component of most chronic health conditions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Having a lot of fiber in the diet was one of the first things kids were taught along with drinking a lot of water and taking lots of vegetables.
  • Having a lot of fiber in the diet is good for the body because it is vital for healthy digestion and colon health.
  • Our mothers were right. Recent research has shown that having a lot of fiber in the diet can be associated with longevity.

"Microbiome" is the term that refers to the good and bad bacteria that resides within your digestive system. When that bacteria is in healthy balance, you have optimal equilibrium in your gut. Prebiotics and probiotics can contribute to this balance, enhancing your overall digestive health. You can get prebiotics and probiotics from both supplements and food. By making an effort to maintain a healthy microbiome, you will reap the benefits of overall immune support, heart health, an improved mood, and regularity in your bowel movements.

Key Takeaways:

  • Probiotics are healthy bacteria that live inside a person's gut, while prebiotics are the fibers that fuel probiotics.
  • Some examples of prebiotic fibers are lentils, different kinds of beans, and fruits and vegetables.
  • Yogurts, kefir, fermented vegetables, and kombucha are examples of probiotic foods.

"While all fiber is important to feeling your best every day, only certain fibers are what we call prebiotics."

Subject: Research links folate deficiency to a wide range of diseases





Folate is commonly known as vitamin B9 and is found in many fruits and vegetables. Being deficient in folate has been linked to many health complications. Folate deficiency has been found to be associated with incurable DNA problems, such as a lost chromosome. It is also associated with dementia, cancer, and even anemia. However, an abundance of folate in the body can prevent cancer and dementia risk. Foods containing folate include brussels sprouts, tomato juice, peas, bananas, and poultry, so it is important to eat healthy to reduce risk of deficiency.

Key Takeaways:

  • Research has shown that folate, which is vitamin B9 and also known sometimes as folic acid, can be found in green leafy vegetables and many fruits.
  • Some of the diseases that are linked to folate deficiency are age-related dementia, cancer, anemia and mental illness. It is also linked to birth defects in women.
  • Researchers have taken a look at the relationship between folate and fragile X syndrome in order to understand how it is linked to other diseases.

"This is the first study that shows folate deficiency can cause problems with DNA replication and cell division."

Subject: 8 Great Reasons To Start Eating Okra





Okra is a popular vegetable found in both African and Asian foods. Okra is used in both soups and stews because of its ability to thicken those meals. Okra is also a great source of fiber, antioxidants, folic acid, calcium, and also vitamins B and C. The antioxidants found in okra can fight off free radicals, which increase the chances to get cancer. The fiber in okra can help maintain a healthy digestive system and can also protect your heart.

Key Takeaways:

  • Okra is a vegetable that is high in fiber and is often used as a thickener in stews and soups.
  • High in vitamins B and C, okra has strong anti-cancer properties due to its high anti-oxidant content.
  • Okra contains the protein collagen, which can give the skin a more supple and youthful appearance.

"The antioxidants found in okra can fight off free radicals and thus reduce the risk of cancer. In fact, lectins (a form of protein) taken from the vegetable were found to have lowered the growth of breast cancer cells by over 50% (1)."

According to a recent Harvard University study, the optimal diet for men who want to maintain strong cognitive health consists of eating leafy green vegetables, berries, orange and red vegetables, and orange juice. Researcher Changzheng Yuan studied 28,000 men over the course of 20 years, tracking their dietary habits and periodically testing their cognitive skills. The group that consumed the most vegetables, about six servings per day, performed better on thinking skills tests than the group that ate half that. There was also a positive association found between eating fruits and overall brain health.

Key Takeaways:

  • One study, centering on cognition, set out to track nearly 3000 men for two decades.
  • All the study participants were human adult, male professionals in the health field.
  • Every participant was questioned about specific food usage upon their entry and at four year intervals thereafter.

"Yuan noted that participants who ate all these fruits and vegetables at the start of the study – 20 years ago – enjoyed better cognitive and memory skills."

Subject: Is celery the powerful anti-cancer weapon we have all been waitingfor?





Celery is known for being a low calorie vegetable that is also a good source of vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. However, the biggest (and perhaps most overlooked) health benefit of celery lies in its cancer-fighting properties. Two important antioxidants found in celery - apigenin and luteolin - are the key. Among other benefits, Apigenin has been shown to inhibit the growth of tumors, while Luteolin interferes with cancer cells' replication cycles. Whether you eat it raw or incorporate it into smoothies, soups or stews, celery doesn't just taste good, it can extend your life.

Key Takeaways:

  • Celery has enjoyed status as a natural medicinal treatment modality since the ninth century.
  • Celery is water-rich and hydrating, but also bursting with nutrients, such as fiber, vitamins, enzymes, minerals and antioxidants.
  • Study has shown that apigenin, which is present in celery, inhibits the expression of a protein that normally allows cancer to break down and invade tissue.

"Research has shown that celery contains two important antioxidants, called apigenin and luteolin, which have exhibited some potent chemopreventive effects."

Subject: Can I Eat Fruit On a Keto Diet?





The ketogenic diet is now trending across the globe, but many have many impressions about this eating regimen that are far from the truth. One of these myths surround the fact that keto dieters cannot consume any carbs at all, making the majority of fruits off limits. Keto followers can actually have up to 50 grams of carbohydrates to start, and they are encouraged to consume healthy fruits that are low in carbohydrates such as lemons or avocados.

Key Takeaways:

  • People often ask if they can eat fruit on a ketogenic diet because in the keto world fruits are often a contentious subject.
  • It is wrong for people to label some foods as keto or non-keto rather they should set diet goals based on their health, activity level, and food preferences.
  • For people who adhere to a very strict definition of keto, the carbs in a fruit can take away a large chunk of their daily carb recommendations.

"Higher carb fruits are going to be harder to incorporate into a keto diet while still allowing room for the liberal intake of vegetables and avocados encouraged in the Keto Reset."

Scientists have been researching ways of achieving brain regeneration for decades, but the article suggests that cruciferous vegetables is a method of regenerating the brain. An MIT scientist discovered that the growth of nervous tissue is aided by phyto-substances, which is a nutrient that can be found in common vegetables, like broccoli. A compound found in broccoli also has more positive effects on the body, as it has anti-inflammatory properties. Broccoli is helpful for elderly patients that suffer from degenerative diseases.

Key Takeaways:

  • Toxins that are present in the air, water, and food can significantly interfere with one’s ability to learn, remember, and even communicate.
  • It was formerly believed in the past by scientists and considered a settled issue that brain regeneration was not a possibility.
  • Today, it is being observed by scientists that brain regeneration by cruciferous vegetables is possible. Joseph Altman, an MIT scientist, was the first to make this observation in 1960.

"This natural process of brain regeneration is expedited by certain beneficial phyto-nutrients, and hampered by certain toxic elements."

Why do I have so much gas?

Subject: Why do I have so much gas?





Gas and bloating can have a variety of causes. Constipation allows fecal matter to ferment and feed bacteria in the colon, for example. Cruciferous vegetables can also cause excess gas because they contain indigestible raffinose. Carbonated beverages, artificial sweeteners and chewing gum are some additional common causes. People with lactose intolerance can get bloated if they consume dairy products, as can people who consume too much fiber or are too sedentary. In some cases, excess gas can be a sign of an underlying condition like celiac disease or pancreatic insufficiency.

Key Takeaways:

  • When stool sits in the colon, which is the case with constipation, the fecal matter ferments and causes gas.
  • The sugar in dairy can ferment and lead to gas when it isn't broken down by the appropriate enzyme, which is the case with those individuals that are lactose intolerant.
  • The natural sugar in cruciferous vegetables can also cause gas, because the body finds it difficult to digest.

"While gas is usually just a normal part of gut function, it can, rarely, be the sign of an illness. Celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten, can lead to gas and bloating. Excessive gas can also be the result of pancreatic insufficiency, a disease in which the pancreas doesn’t produce enough of the enzymes needed to digest food."

Subject: Research says flavonoids can flush out arsenic from the body





Thru environmental and food processes, we are exposed to many chemicals that are either ingested or absorbed thru respiration or through the skin. These toxic materials can be gotten rid of thru the foods we eat. A nutritional component called flavornoids, which are found the colors of various fruit and vegetables. The brighter the color, the more they contain. Flavornoids can not only help to rid the body of organic toxins, but inorganic as well.

Key Takeaways:

  • People encounter a lot of harmful substances that get into the body throughout their lives which the body detoxifies, but sometimes these substances interfere with detoxification.
  • When toxins are not detoxified, they can cause damage to the body but there are fortunately many nutrients that can boost the body’s ability to detoxify toxins.
  • Flavonoids are pigments that one can find in fruits and vegetables with about 6,000 varieties. Researchers have realized that these flavonoids have several health benefits.

"In a study published in the journal Nutrition Research, scientists from the U.S. and Mexico found that these nutrients help eliminate a toxin called inorganic arsenic from the body."

Subject: The Best Keto Fiber Foods & Why You Need Them





The Keto diet is well-known for emphasizing the value of healthy fats, but that doesn't mean it neglects the importance of fiber. It is not uncommon for those transitioning to the low-carb, high fat Keto diet to experience problems with digestion. The solution is to consume high fiber foods that keep you in a state of ketosis. These include non-starchy vegetables (e.g., cabbage and asparagus) as well as seeds and nuts. Keto fiber supplements - such as Gum arabic and Chia seeds - can also serve to maintain digestive regularity.

Key Takeaways:

  • Avocado is full of both healthy fats and dietary fiber, making it a valuable staple for people on keto diets.
  • Non-starchy vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and zucchini can provide lots of fiber, vitamins and antioxidants.
  • When eaten in moderation, high-fiber nuts like pistachios, walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts can provide fiber and nutrients and help digestion.

"Eighty percent of your total daily calories should be coming from foods like olive oil, coconut oil, grass-fed butter, nuts and seeds."

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





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

Key Takeaways:

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

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

Subject: Chitosan: A more environmentally friendly food packaging materialthan plastic





Itsaso Leceta, an academic researcher from the University of Basque Country has developed a biodegradable polymer, hoping to change packaging standards. Chitosan, made from crustacean chitins, prevents fungi and bacteria from infecting whole foods. It does not, however, block gas, water, or vapor. On the plus side, this new environmentally conscious food packaging is completely biodegradable, even edible. Everyone can make a difference, and consumers can start by choosing alternative means in their lives, like Chitosan.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although fruit is often coated in plastic films to protect it from contaminants, these plastics pollute the sea, and their productions involves the use of hazardous chemicals.
  • Chitosan is produced by processing the material that makes up crustaceans’ exoskeletons, and it has antimicrobial properties that make it a good potential coating for fruit and vegetables.
  • You can help reduce the impact of packaging materials on the environment by bringing your own bag when you buy produce, and by buying from local farmers.

"It is a biodegradable, biocompatible (not harmful to living tissue) polymer that can be used to wrap vegetables and fruits. Its purpose is to prevent bacteria and fungi from infecting whole foods, and prolonging their shelf life."

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."

Broccoli can really help your body’s ability to expel harmful toxins that you ingest or breathe in According to recent research, post-menopausal women who ate lots of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli showed a substantially lower risk of breast cancer, perhaps because broccoli improved their livers’ ability to detoxify their bodies. Likewise, a 12-week Johns Hopkins University study of almost 300 people in a heavily polluted part of rural China found that broccoli made their bodies much more efficient at excreting dangerous compounds like benzene and acrolein.

Key Takeaways:

  • One major study found that post-menopausal women who ate lots of broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables had a lower chance of breast cancer.
  • A 12 week Johns Hopkins University study in a heavily polluted region of China found that broccoli improved excretion of harmful chemicals like benzene and acrolein.
  • Broccoli can also promote better cardiac health, regulate your blood sugar and improve your immune system.

"These detoxifying benefits of broccoli can be attributed to the presence of phytonutrients called glucoraphanin, gluconasturtiian, and glucobrassicin."

The Francis Crick Institute has published new research on the useful properties of cruciferous vegetables in protecting against pathogens that attack your gastrointestinal tract. According to this research, kale, broccoli, and cauliflower can all help reduce your susceptibility to inflammatory bowel diseases. They do this by helping to mitigate the effects of a compound called Cyplal, which can inhibit your body’s ability to use a separate substance called aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR). This is good because when Cyplal interferes with AhR, it can leave you more vulnerable to gut parhogens.

Key Takeaways:

  • A study that used a mouse model to replicate human gastrointestinal diseases found that cruciferous vegetables like kale, broccoli and cauliflower lower the risk of inflammatory bowel disease.
  • What makes cruciferous vegetables important in fighting gut pathogens is because they contain a protein whose role is important in mediating toxicity.
  • The researchers found out that having too much of the protein helping the gut fight bacteria is a bad thing.

"An article in The Francis Crick Institute news page reported that cruciferous vegetables are particularly beneficial when it comes to shielding the intestine from disease-causing microorganisms."

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."

Subject: Eating more omega-3-rich food may lower inflammation and arthritispain





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."

What's The Difference Between Niacin And Niacinamide

Subject: What's The Difference Between Niacin And Niacinamide

When it comes to Vitamin B3, not all forms of Niacin are created equally. Aside from the risk of allergens and impurities, there are also separate forms with critical distinctions. The pure form is made solely of nicotinic acid which causes the flushing effect when it is taken by humans. The flushing effect is a redness that starts in the face and expands outwards through the rest of the body. It can make the skin feel warm, dry, and itchy for half an hour. The flushing effect is associated with vascular dilation that helps open up the tiny capillaries and blood vessels to clean out all the toxic junk they may have accumulated.

Nicotinic Acid Lowers Cholesterol

Nicotinic acid is also associated with increasing HDL levels in the body to prevent heart disease and plaques from accumulating on the interior walls of arteries. Nicotinic acid is also known to lower the LDL and VLDL bad cholesterols that clog up arteries and lead to heart attacks and strokes.

Other Benefits of Vitamin B3

Vitamin B3 plays a critical role in building enzymes that help us carry out over 200 physical functions in the body. It is not produced naturally but is absorbed from foods such as yeast, green Vegetables, milk, eggs, legumes, and fish. Aside from cardiovascular health, it plays a critical role in nervous health and sex hormone production.

How Does Niacinamide Differ?

Niacinamide is a water-soluble form of Niacin that is used to treat deficiencies or for therapies when patients need to take higher doses regularly to treat pellegra and the deficiencies that lead to it. When an excess of Niacin is built up in the body, your body may store it in this form. The chief distinction between this water-soluable hybrid and nicotinic acid is the effect on cholesterol and vascular dilation. Although flushing can be reduced by taking nicotinic acid daily and building up a tolerance to the effects, it is harder on the liver and more burdensome on the body to metabolize it in the high doses used for therapy of many illnesses: ADHD, Schizophrenia, nervous problems, migraines, and arthritis, among others. It is the preferred choice for maintaining a consistent and steady level of Vitamin B3 in the body and loaded into many beauty and skin products for women.

What Other Forms Can I Take?

You can take any form of the vitamin on a daily basis or supplement it with nicotinic acid when you need some additional flushing effect. You will notice that Niacinamide causes some symptoms of drying and itching that are similar to flushing when you take it in high doses. The no-flush formulation is called inositol hexanicotinate and made up from Vitamins B3 and Inositol Vitamin B8. The inositol acts as an additional buffer that makes inositol hexanicotinate easy to digest and take 1600 mg without side-effects: nausea, itching, flushing, dizziness, gout, liver damage, diabetes. Although multi-vitamin formulas and even fortified foods like breakfast shakes and cereals suggest that you are getting a full dose of B3 in each serving, this is very unlikely. The better choice is to take specifically formulated capsules rather than multivitamins if you are using it for therapeutic reasons.

Subject: One more reason to supplement: Probiotics reduce cadmium toxicity





A new study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food claims that probiotic supplements can aid with the reduction of cadmium toxicity. Researchers found that probiotics actually help eradicate a body's cadmium by fastening to their bacterial cell wall and then remove them via feces. If a person is looking to lower their exposure to cadmium then they might want to stop smoking and if they don't smoke then also avoid inhaling another person's cigarette smoke as well.

Key Takeaways:

  • Two sets of researchers in Serbia and Libya have found that taking probiotics will help eliminate cadmium that exist in the body so that they can be excreted.
  • The study that made this discovery about probiotics was done on mice which found that cadmium that has environmental toxicity effects on the body can be reduced.
  • When the study was conducted by feeding mice probiotics, many correlations were found in the excreta concerning cadmium that suggested probiotics eliminated cadmium and pass them through excreta.

"Lower cadmium levels can also be found in vegetables, cereals, and starchy roots. It has toxic effects on the kidneys, the skeletal system, and the respiratory system. It is also classified as a human carcinogen."

Subject: The potential antidiabetic benefits of moringa





Estimates from the World Health Organization place the possible tally of worldwide diabetics at over 400 million. That figure was established almost 5 years ago. Truly, diabetes is on the rise and rightfully considered an epidemic. All of which explains why scientists around the world are always on the lookout for natural, effective, low-cost treatment modalities that afford minimal to no side effects for the user. This is especially crucial because diabetes is a leading cause of blindness and loss of limbs. The most prevalent form, type 2 diabetes, is manageable with diet and drugs, but many drugs come with the cost of potentially dangerous side effects. Moringa, a native of India and a popular Asian Vegetable, is gaining buzz as a superfood. One Cambodian study used obese rodent subjects and garnered some compelling evidence that the superfood could be used to benefit diabetics. For example, the mice used, that were also moringa recipients, had lower fasting glucose levels. The moringa recipients also had lower triglyceride levels and lessened renal impairment. Study suggests that moringa protects the human body from oxidative stress, from inflammation, and even from arsenic. It also acts to reduce cholesterol.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are a lot of benefits that come from the natural plants in the world.
  • Most of the people who suffer from diabetes, in the world and the United States, have the form called Type 2.
  • This new plant that they found is called moringa and the effects of it are apparently very good.

"Researchers from different parts of the world are setting their sights on moringa (Moringa oleifera), a plant native to India and widely cultivated in different parts of Asia, and its potential health benefits, with many being focused on its antidiabetic effects."

Subject: Prevent the number one cause of premature death by simply takingvitamin C





According to the data, it's been estimated that as many as half of all premature deaths are preventable, moreover that poor nutritional intake is at the core of the problem. One such nutritional deficit that could lower the number of premature deaths is the deficit of vitamin C. Vitamin C is a well-known immune system booster. However, it also has an important role to fulfill when it comes to cardiovascular health. The journal of the American College of Nutrition recently attests to this fact. The journal reported findings that agreed that the use of vitamin C reduced the incidence of cardiac disease. The findings were based on a study of over 100 men, many of whom were smokers. Those given the highest dosage of vitamin C slashed their risk for cardiac complications by more than half. Danish research further augments this aspect of vitamin C. Data pools acquired from 100,000+ Danes showed high vitamin C concentrations among those who regularly consumed a large array of fruits and vegetables. This higher level was auspiciously linked with a lowered risk of cardiovascular disease and premature death.

Key Takeaways:

  • Long accumulated data strongly suggests that up to half of all early deaths are preventable.
  • Vitamin C has a profound effect on coronary heart disease, and it has protective ability even when the vitamin C user is a smoker.
  • One recent study which supports this contention used 108 different male subjects, many of whom smoked.

"The reality is that an inexpensive vitamin supplement could reduce the rate of coronary heart disease but mainstream medicine is so deeply entrenched in pharmaceutical dogma, the idea that nutrients can prevent disease is downright blasphemous."

Vitamin K: The Wellness Vitamin

Vitamin K isn't actually one specific vitamin. There is a whole grouping of fat-soluble cofactors that are intricately involved in the creation of protein in human beings. This grouping is called vitamin K in layperson speak and for everyday purposes. There are actually four cofactors in the K grouping, which has a designated K because of its well-know ability to coagulate human blood.

K1 is an important part of the chemical process that leads directly to clotting. The other organic K variant, specifically K2 (MK-4) and K2 (MK-7), are used by the body to transport calcium. They have a profound affect on human bone density and in preventing calcium plaque formation on blood vessel walls. K3 is a synthetic variant with possible cancer applications which are being investigated.

K1 is available to eaters through a wide array of fruits and vegetables and beans and margarine. The K2s can be found in an array of cheeses and in egg yolks,chicken and beef and other non-meat proteins.

Because it has such an important role to play vis a vis calcium use in the body, it stands to reason that K is significant in the possible prevention of both osteoporosis and cardiac disease. It is becoming clear to scientists that K may also have a role to play in cognition and in increasing insulin sensitivity, thereby ameliorating the effects of diabetes.

Key Takeaways:

  • The original term vitamin “K” comes from the letter “K” in the word “Koagulation”
  • Scientific research over the past few years has pointed towards the importance of K vitamins in osteoporosis, vascular calcification, osteoarthritis, diabetes and cognition.
  • Vitamin K is essential for good bone health due to its ability to improve bone density.

"Vitamin K is a name given to a group of fat-soluble vitamins which are considered essential cofactors in humans for the production of various proteins involved in coagulation homeostasis and calcium homeostasis."

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.

"Lesser known fruits and plants have been gradually taking the spotlight in alternative medicine as natural remedies to various health conditions and improving overall nutrition."
