Subject: Study: Astragalus can improve symptoms of pulmonary arterial hypertension





Astragalus is known in Chinese medicine because it has been used by the Chinese for centuries as a medicinal herb. Recent researchers have backed up the healing claims of the plant. In a new study that was done in China, Chinese researchers have discovered that polysaccharide extracts from astragalus can be effective against pulmonary arterial hypertension. To carry out the study they fed rats with monocrotaline in order to induce pulmonary arterial hypertension in them. Then they gave the rats 200 milligrams per kilogram of astragalus polysaccharides once in every two days for a period of two weeks. The results were positive. It was found that the polysaccharides of astragalus reduced the hypertension of the pulmonary artery induced by monocrotaline in rats. There were other benefits that were discovered. The treatment with the polysaccharide of astragalus also eliminated oxidative stress, promoted vasodilation, and reduced inflammation in the rats. All these suggest that astragalus lowers the blood pressure in individuals. The findings of the study were then published in the American Journal of Chinese Medicine with the authors stating that astragalus can be used to eliminate symptoms of pulmonary arterial hypertension in individuals.

Key Takeaways:

  • Astragalus is also known as huang qi and it has been used in Chinese medicine for hundreds of years while its beneficial effects has been backed up by research.
  • In a new study that was published by Chinese researchers, it was found that the polysaccharides in astragalus can be used to help patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension.
  • In the study the researchers administered monocrotaline in rats in order to induce pulmonary arterial hypertension and then administered astragalus polysaccharides to them for two weeks.

"In China, astragalus is one of the herbs commonly prescribed to help with diabetes management. Research has also shown that the active compounds in astragalus may help in reducing blood sugar levels in people with Type 2 diabetes. Lab trials have shown that it improves metabolism, reduce blood sugar levels, and aid in weight loss."

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





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

Key Takeaways:

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

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

Subject: Powerful antioxidant helps us burn fat, lose weight and avoid premature aging





Milk thistle is known for being good for the liver, but researchers are finding more and more evidence that points to an antioxidant called glutathione being a key component as well. The powerful antioxidant called glutathione allows our bodies to kick up their natural fat burning abilities which helps trigger weight loss in an almost effortless manner. Studies have also shown that a deficiency in glutathione can cause weight gain through a reduction in mitochondrial fat burning.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is astonishing to note that two out of three Americans are overweight and obese and this makes them susceptible to diabetes and heart diseases.
  • Researchers are increasingly discovering that glutathione which is an antioxidant molecule that is produced by the body could be used in the fight against obesity and chronic disease.
  • This natural substance is not abundantly found in humans equally because the supply of glutathione can fall with aging and exposure environmental toxins make it more challenging to find.

"Glutathione is synthesized from the amino acids cysteine, glycine and glutamate. But, as we age, two of these “building blocks” – cysteine and glycine – decline, causing shortfalls in glutathione production."

Subject: Women with acute uncomplicated cystitis can benefit from green tea





The health benefits of green tea have long been praised by scientists and health practitioners, and new research actually adds to the current body of knowledge regarding green tea. Recently, it has been found that green tea can aid in the symptoms of acute cystitis. Acute cystitis is categorized as inflammation in the bladder that is prompted by bacterial infection. Green tea has antimicrobial effects, which can help reduce symptoms of acute cystitis with the exception of blood in the urine. Other health benefits of green tea include weight loss, the prevention of cancer, lowering of stroke risk, and improved memory function.

Key Takeaways:

  • Acute cystitis, which affects many women, is a fast onset inflammation of the bladder, usually the result of a bacterial infection.
  • Recently, the publication, Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice printed data linking cystitis with the use of green tea.
  • Green tea's efficacy against cystitis makes sense, because green tea has catechins that have antimicrobial effect against the E-coli bacteria.

"For this study, researchers from Kerman University of Medical Sciences in Iran carried out a blinded randomized trial to assess the efficacy of green tea as adjunctive therapy to standard antimicrobial treatment in women with acute uncomplicated cystitis."

Subject: Bone Broth Diet Plan Benefits & How to Follow It





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.

"Proponents of the plan claim that the bone broth diet results in quick weight loss, better skin, improved gut health and decreased inflammation. Let’s take a look at a few of the potential ways that the diet can enhance overall health."

Many of us are aware of fiber being an important nutrient, but what about prebiotic fibers? These are essential when it comes to cleansing the colon and regulating the metabolism, as well as digestion. A study showed that mice who were living on a high-fat diet without the presence of prebiotics showed to have troublesome symptoms such as a slower metabolic rate and less weight loss. This is in comparison to the mice who were given the replica of a high fat diet with prebiotic fibers present.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Cell Host & Microbe Journal published a piece lauding the addition of prebiotic fiber to an otherwise high fat diet.
  • Researchers found that such an addition proved to be a way to potentially avoid or lessen the effects of metabolic syndrome.
  • Researchers gave rodents on an otherwise high fat diet, inulin, a fermentable fiber supplement, to monitor the effects.

"People consistently overlook the importance of eating healthy foods, especially fibers which are known to cleanse the colon."

Subject: Prepping basics: 5 Effective natural remedies for ulcers





Peptic ulcers occur when an individual's digestive juices cause damage to the walls of the intestines or stomach. Usually, peptic ulcers are caused by H. pylori, a bacteria that causes inflammation in the digestive tract. Burning pain is the most commonly known symptom of a peptic ulcer. Other symptoms include belching, heartburn, bloating, nausea, and weight loss. Aloe vera taken orally is one natural remedy for ulcers. Cabbage juice, chamomile, and honey also all fight peptic ulcers without the negative side effects of medication. While ulcers are usually just irritating, they will become debilitating if left untreated.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although ulcers can occur anywhere on the body, they are especially common along the digestive tract.
  • Peptic ulcers occur in the stomach and intestines as a result of digestive juices damaging the lining.
  • Aloe vera, which is used topically for burns and infections, can be used internally to treat ulcers.

"Ulcers are common, and how they appear and their corresponding symptoms depend on their cause and where they develop on your body."

Subject: Why Fibre: The One Effective Macronutrient For Constipation AndWeight Loss





Fiber is a critical macronutrient that can help to alleviate constipation by increasing the size and weight of the stool. However, consuming too much fiber can cause discomfort, gas and bloating. The recommended daily intake of fiber for adults is 25 grams for women and 35 grams for men. Unfortunately, most people take in only about 15 grams of fiber per day. It's important to drink plenty of water so that the body can absorb fiber properly without any negative effects. While fiber is not a magic pill, it can aid in weight loss by eliminating toxins, boosting gut health, and balancing blood sugar.

Key Takeaways:

  • Since fiber is an essential macronutrient that the body requires, people who are suffering from constipation can get relief from having it in their diet.
  • Some of the benefits of taking fiber include the smooth movement of bowel through the increase in the weight and size of stool, and for losing weight.
  • Although fiber is good for the body, too much of fiber is unhealthy because it can lead to bloating, gas, and constipation.

"This means that a lack of fibre can invite a host of health problems ranging from plummeting sugar and lipid profiles, overeating which can in turn lead to obesity, constipation and gut dysbiosis which can pave way for even more serious illnesses."

Subject: What Does Obesity Mean for Your Health, Heart, Thyroid, 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.

"Carrying excess weight worsens glucose tolerance and also increases the risk of developing certain cancers."

When you have an imbalance of antioxidants within your system, this often leads to oxidative stress. An increase in oxidative stress unfortunately leads to many forms of cancer. Research has emerged that showed leucine and omega-3's have the ability to fight off this oxidative stress by increasing the amount of antioxidants that are found in the liver. Both of these can be found in the form of a nutritional supplement at most mainstream health and wellness stores.

Key Takeaways:

  • Every year more than 8 million people die of cancer, a disease that stems in part due to oxidative stress.
  • Nearly a quarter of those that succumb to cancer suffer from a wasting syndrome known as cachexia.
  • Cachexia sufferers endure draining weight loss, because the disease depletes carbohydrares, lipids and proteins in the body.

9 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight on Keto

Author: Darrell Miller (support@vitanetonline.com)
Subject: 9 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight on Keto





The keto diet can be a very effective way for individuals to shed excess pounds, but if it is not practiced correctly, the results will remain limited. In order to optimize the diet’s effectiveness, dieters who find their progress stalling should attempt to reduce the amount of carbohydrates and proteins they are eating, assess whether their overall food intake might be either too low or too high, focus on triggering ketosis, get regular sleep and exercise. If these strategies fail, it might be time to adjust inflated expectations or consider the possibility of a medical condition that is inhibiting weight loss.

Key Takeaways:

  • Eating too much protein can actually stop the ketosis process if your body processes some of the extra protein into glucose.
  • Eating too much can defeat the purpose of dieting, especially if you snack a lot, but eating too little can make your body conserve more calories by tricking it into guarding against “starvation.”
  • It can be hard for keto diet neophytes to know exactly if they’ve even reached ketosis yet except through testing for ketones.

"To calculate net carbs, simply subtract the total grams of fiber from the total grams of carbs in your foods. High-fiber keto foods like certain veggies are great choices to help keep carb consumption low while squeezing in plenty of vitamins and minerals to support better health."

Can CBD Help with Chemotherapy Treatments?

The potency of chemotherapy has long been considered a mixed blessing for cancer-sufferers, because while it can obliterate cancer cells, sometimes very effectively, it also has the effect of annihilating healthy cells along the way. Because of the unintended second effect, users often experience nasty side issues, including nausea, hair-loss, swelling of the extremities, and diarrhea.

Canabidiol is a derivative from the hemp plant. Unlike oil culled from its relative, marijuana, the hemp derivative is not an abundant source of THC, the psychotropic element that gives marijuana its buzz. Good news for cancer sufferers undergoing chemo, because study suggests the oil can mitigate many of the bugbears affiliated with chemo use. Gains were seen across the side-effect spectrum, in fact. Study showed nausea was ameliorated, swelling contained, weight loss prevented, pain mitigated, and a better mood induced.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chemotherapy is known to kill off healthy and cancer cells effectively and without discrimination.
  • This capability can lead to an array of side effects for chemo-recipients, including hair loss, nausea and swelling of extremities.
  • CBD oil has been shown to positively impact many of these side effects, including weight loss, depression, nausea and swelling.

"Fortunately there are studies which suggest that cannabidiol (CBD), one of the chemicals derived from cannabis plants , can actually help manage the debilitating side effects of chemotherapy."

How green tea could help prevent heart attacks

Scientists from the University of Leeds and Lancaster University have discovered that epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a compound found in green tea, can bind to and dissolve or break up amyloid protein deposits. Amyloid is the key causative agent in Alzheimer’s, but it is also found in atherosclerotic plaques, and the impact of EGCG can therefore help reduce plaque inside the arteries. While this research is promising, the body destroys most of the EGCG it ingests, and the absorption and transport of the molecule is highly inefficient, suggesting more research on delivery of ECGC is needed.

Key Takeaways:

  • Green tea is noted for its ability to aid in weight loss and building up immunity.
  • Now, University researchers are finding that the tea has a substance that could aid in breaking up dangerous plaque in human arteries.
  • Already under review for its possible ability to reduce amyloid plaques in the brain, the substance appears to have an ameliorating affect on fatty deposits in the blood vessels as well.

"Green tea could be key to help prevent deaths from heart attacks and strokes caused by atherosclerosis."

Australian father treats his daughters' Chron's disease by juicing cannabis... then gets raided by the government

As a parent, what would one not do to prevent a beloved child from suffering? One Australian father chose to break the law. Stephen Taylor is the father of two daughters, both afflicted with a very serious and chronic gastrointestinal disease that routinely causes fatigue, cramping, diarrhea, and even hemorrhaging.

The girls, Ariel and Morgan, had both failed to thrive while under conventional treatment options, even acquiring horrible side effects. So, Taylor took matters into his own hands. He tried and was unable to obtain legal permission to administer medical marijuana to his daughters. So, Taylor placed the girls on a regimen of home-grown cannabis juice on his own. The regimen proved efficacious, with both girls obtaining stellar results. Unfortunately, however, the authorities caught on, impounding the marijuana and charging Taylor.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sufferers of Chron's disease typically experience, abdominal pain, exhaustion, weight loss, cramping, diarrhea and bleeding through the rectum.
  • One Australian father to daughters afflicted with Chron's placed his girls on a regiman of home-grown cannabis juice, with excellent results.
  • Unfortunately, the authorities caught on and impounded the cannabis and charged the father with criminal charges.

"Even though medical marijuana use has been legal in Australia since 2016, it is very difficult to obtain. Though experts estimate that around 100,000 Australians are self-medicating with cannabis for a variety of health problems, only 500 patients have official government authorization to do so."

Fiber may not sound very cool, but it's incredibly important for the body. Fiber, the indigestible part of many good foods, fuels good bacteria, helps to stabilize glucose levels, and can aid in weight loss. The three types of fiber -- soluble, insoluble, and resistant starch -- work together to ensure good health. To get more fiber, try whole grain bread, fruits, and vegetables. You may not be getting enough fiber if you are constipated or get hungry very easily.

Key Takeaways:

  • Fiber is a great way to make your health good and stay alive!
  • Fiber is the indigestable part of many different foods that are good for you
  • Bread, fruit, and vegetables are all great sources of fiber for those in need

"There are three main types of fibre – soluble, insoluble and resistant starch – and you need a balance of all three for optimal digestive health."
