Subject: New meta-analysis finds that proper vitamin D levels greatlyimprove the health of diabetics and heart patients





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

Key Takeaways:

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

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

Subject: Vitamin D And Its Effect On Brain





Vitamin D has a wide range of vital health benefits for your bones, teeth, heart and endocrine system. Recent research suggests it also has a critical job in brain health and mental health as as well. Vitamin D deficiency — already associated with damage to the immune system and hypertension — may also put you at a higher risk of schizophrenia or cognitive impairment. This is a serious problem, given that there may be a billion vitamin D-deficient people in the world today.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin D, which is sometimes referred to as the “sunshine vitamin,” is important for keeping the bones healthy, for boosting the immune system, and good cardiovascular health.
  • According to findings from research, when one lacks Vitamin D the immune system will be compromised and it can also raise the danger of hypertension.
  • It is well reported that there is a relationship between vitamin D and mental health. A study on rodents showed that vitamin D deficiency resulted in brain damage.

"New research finds that vitamin D deficiency influences a kind of brain “scaffolding” that supports the neurons."

Subject: Congress Finally Frees Hemp From Jail: Big News For Farmers and CBDIndustry





The Farm Act that was recently passed by Congress allows farmers across the nation to freely grow hemp as they please. Unfortunately, there are still restrictions set on the production of CBD products, which leaves a grey area in terms of what is acceptable and unacceptable. 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."

The Cannabis Remedy: Simple Solution For Over 40 Million PeopleSuffering With Anxiety

Anxiety is a very prevalent condition, both in the U.S. and worldwide. In fact the National Institutes of Health concur that as much as 33% of the world's population has suffered, or well suffer from some type of anxiety. Besides mentally specific symptoms, such as worry, fretting, inability to focus, nervousness and fearfulness, the condition can create physical symptoms as well, such as clenching, sweating, dizziness, accelerated breathing, pulse and raised blood pressure. At it's worst, anxiety can induce a full-blown panic attack, depersonalization and even a certainty that one is dying. Obviously anxiety is a potentially critical condition, with the ability to disrupt life, even in small ways. As it worsens, anxiety can make it difficult to impossible for sufferers to work or socialize effectively. Though triggers vary, most people are visited by anxiety due to one of three big concerns, namely fears that center around finances, safety, or health. One poll conducted by the American Psychiatric Association concluded that keeping the family safe and bill-paying were huge anxiety triggers that resonated with more than 60% of respondents. The positive news is that many people can experience mitigation, if not complete surcease of these symptoms by using cannabis, which is expected to keep growing as an industry. THC which is the psychoactive component in cannabis, that which makes it illegal if it gets past .3%, is minimal to almost nil in hemp, which is related to, but not the same as marijuana. The THC amount will vary in cannabis products. There is hemp oil, hemp seed oil and CBD oil, which is made from the entire plant, flowers and all, so it may have a bit more THC. Oil products can be taken topically, or sublingually, even smoked. By acting on receptors in the central nervous symptom, the constituents of the oil act to mitigate the symptoms of anxiety. Even beyond pain relief these products have been shown to have efficacy for symptoms of epilepsy, pain and impaired cognition.

Key Takeaways:

  • The National Institute of Health estimates as much as a third of the world suffers from anxiety.
  • Anxiety has the ability to disrupt life, even making it impossible for people to function at work, home or in social capacities.
  • Although anxiety takes many forms, the big three trigger issues for most people revolve around, health, finances and safety.

"The good news is, there are ways to cope, even ways to alleviate anxiety and its symptoms using natural and drug-free solutions."

Hemp growing in midstate after outlawed for decades

Pen State Extension is performing groundbreaking research into the cultivation of five varieties of hemp, marking the first legal cultivation in the area for 80 years. Hemp is a close relative of marijuana, and this was enough to get it banned even though it does not contain psychoactive THC and has a wide variety of legitimate uses. However, a 2014 Farm Bill legalized growth of industrial hemp for research purposes. Penn State Extensions’s researchers will look at how well different varieties will grow, although they note there is not yet a robust supply chain in place for farmers to sell their hemp.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers from Penn State Extension are growing five different varieties of hemp.
  • This hemp does not contain a sufficient amount of the chemical THC to make someone feel high.
  • Lancaster County once had many thriving hemp farms, but the crop was outlawed in 1938.

"For the first time in 80 years, industrial hemp is growing legally in Lancaster County."

Subject: Idaho bill would allow use of cannabis-derived CBD oil





CBD oil (or cannabinoidiol oil) is a great treatment for cancer and seizures. Many lawmakers are trying to pass a bill to allow it. This would mean people would not have to move to acquire this medical wonder. The CBD is derived from hemp. It does not have psychoactive effects. It relieves pain and nausea. THC is what makes you high. The CBD oil would be low in THC. Many states currently allow it and Idaho is trying to move forward.

Key Takeaways:

  • CBD is a drug derived from marijuana and hemp that has shown promise in medicine
  • Unlike THC it doesn't contain any psychoactive hallucinogens and isn't used recreationally
  • The drug has shown promise in trials for sufferers of various maladies like epilepsy or fibromyalgia.

"The DEA defines hemp and marijuana as different parts of the same cannabis plant. Hemp refers to the stalks and sterilized seeds of the plant that is used for making industrial rope, clothing, paper and other products."

Subject: Simpler CBD Legalization bill Clears House Committee





Cannabidiol, or cbd, was recently passed as a legal substance by the Indiana House of Representatives. The bill does have a curious ride that the cbd must contain less than 3% thc, or the active ingredient in marijuana to be legal. There may still be hurdles as it heads to the Senate, but this is clearly good. The best evidence came from a man suffering from ALS, who said it didn't cure him but it did give him better days than without the drug.

Key Takeaways:

  • Indiana legislators have made an important step forward in legalizing cannabis-based medicines.
  • This bill sets a specific limit on the amount of certain substances in a cannabis derivative that can be allowed.
  • The hope is that this will simplify the regulatory landscape for consumers and producers in Indiana.

"A House committee passed legislation Wednesday to legalize cannabidiol, or CBD. The unanimously-approved bill takes a simpler approach to authorizing its use."

Indiana lawmakers are advancing a bill which would allow study of the use of medical cannabis in that state. Last Thursday, they voted 94-0 to advance the bill towards passage. Additionally, they passed a second bill which would allow for the possession and sale of hemp in the state. Simultaneously, a number of other bills are under consideration regarding the use of different types of oils derived from cannabis. Given the different positions and number of bills under review, it seems that it will be some time before there is complete legal clarity on this topic in Indiana.

Key Takeaways:

  • State lawmakers voted 94 to 0 this morning in Indianapolis in favor of a bill to support medical marijuana study.
  • There are also alot of CBD oil bills in the house right now, so things are looking up for pro marijuana citizens.
  • Lawmakers are starting to catch up to consumers when it comes to passing marijuana laws.

"Thursday morning, a House committee, passed a bill legalizing the sale and possession of hemp by a vote of 12 to 0. State Rep. Jim Lucas, a Republican from Seymour, said his House Bill 1137 includes CBD oil."

Our body does not survive on its own but rather through the assistance of numerous micro organisms. In our gut system for instance, bacteria and yeasts thrive in billions. However, these can turn into harmful creatures if their numbers are not checked. A good example is 'Candida Albicans' species of yeast. If the immune system weakens, it can multiply to hazardous quantities. The body becomes sick. First symptom is strong sugar craving. Then there is chronic mental fog, joint swelling and mood swings. To cure this condition, avoid sugar and antibiotics. include in your diet probiotics, apple cider and lemon juice.

Key Takeaways:

  • Candida is a normal habitant of your body and does good things for you.
  • Yeast feed very well of sugar, so staying away from that will make a difference in the growth patterns.
  • Apple cider vinegar or lemon juice will help clear up the yeast by helping your body pH get back on track.

Subject: Year to Watch: Six Exciting Areas For Cannabis Industry Development in 2018





The cannabis industry has been booming since Colorados legalization and now with California's full legalization, it can get even larger. There are a few associated industries that will grow with it. The first is banking. Banking is key because currently, it is semi-illegal to have a bank account if you sell cannabis. It is still illegal and the government can seize your assets as well as freeze the bank's assets. Consumer goods will be another huge market, since they'll need to move into a new arena to make cannabis and cannabis products more mainstream.

Key Takeaways:

  • Banking will be big for the cannabis industry, due to the normal locks that the industry faces
  • Currently, any cannabis supplier that uses a bank can have their assets legally seized and the bank faces legal action as well
  • Moving product to the consumer side will also be important as they move beyond the typical medicinal direction.

"Whether it’s medical or adult use – one statistic I came across that’s very interesting is that by 2020, the cannabis industry will be at approximately $17 billion. To put that in perspective for packagers, the natural cheese market right now is at about $12 billion."

Indiana is hoping to be one of the first states with legal access to CBD oil. Senator Jim Tomes from Wadesville out forth this legislation in hopes that it will open up this promising drug to all. The drug, derived from hemp, instead of the marijuana, is seen to be promising in many of its tests in a wide range of symptoms for its anti-inflammatory properties. The major change would just get rid of CBD from the controlled substance ban list for ease of use throughout the state.

Key Takeaways:

  • The drug is currently on schedule and this bill would remove it from that schedule.
  • It is currently only legal in states where marijuana has been legalized

"Republican Sen. Jim Tomes from Wadesville hopes to make the product readily available throughout the state."

There is a steep cost to sleep deprivation. People need to get plenty of sleep at night, or they will suffer the consequences. Sleep deprivation does the same thing to your body as physical stress does and even illness. It is something to avoid. If you do not get enough sleep then you are putting yourself at risk of developing some bad diseases. Sleeping is also an important thing for our emotional balance.

Subject: Can your dog be arrested for using a cannabis extract?





Thomas McDermott, a Democrat and the Mayor of Hammond, Indiana, brought up the legality of using cannabidiol oil (CBD) for treating his Labrador retriever's arthritis at the BGD Legislative Conference in Indianapolis. At the conference was Republican Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill who last month stated that the use of CBD was illegal in most circumstances in his state after a bill passed to allow epilepsy patients to legally use the oil for seizures. McDermott questioned Hill using a story about his dog that suffered from arthritis, noting that his vet recommended using CBD oil to treat the pain. He mentioned that the oil allowed his dog to move around more easily, had more energy, and had improved appetite. McDermott thought aloud that Hill was "grandstanding" on CBD, but Hill simply stated he was following the law as it was written. When McDermott asked if his dog was breaking the law, Hill responded that the Mayor himself was breaking the law - not the dog. McDermott was upset afterwards that Hill accused him for being a criminal for treating his dog with CBD, and he has no plans to change the therapy for his dog.

Key Takeaways:

  • The owners dog currently used CBD and that is restricted in Indiana for use.
  • The dog is currently on it due to arthritis and it seems to cure his condition.
  • The final conclusion was that the owner was breaking the law, not the dog since the dog has no agency.

"The question Thomas McDermott wanted answered Wednesday doesn’t get asked often during policy discussions in Indiana: Could his Labrador retriever be breaking the law by using a pain remedy extracted from cannabis?"

Scientists call on feds to allow research on CBD for pets

Subject: Scientists call on feds to allow research on CBD for pets





Veterinarians, researchers and pet owners are looking to loosen federal regulations on the use of marijuana products to help treat sick animals. Medical issues in dogs, such as epilepsy, arthritis, anxiety, loss of appetite and inflammation could potentially by helped by marijuana-based drugs and extracts.

Some people are already using marijuana extracts on their animals, such as those containing CBD, which is an element of marijuana that is not psychoactive. However, such extracts continue to be listed as Schedule 1 drugs by the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration, even when they contain little or no THC. THC is the active component in marijuana that causes intoxication.

The Food and Drug Administration has warned that marijuana products for pets sold in animal hospitals or online pet stores are illegal, since such drugs are unapproved. The FDA has suggested it will pursue legal action against those in violation of the law.

However, the policy-making body of the American Veterinary Medical Association, in conjunction with two group councils, is considering making a recommendation to the DEA for marijuana to be declassified as a Schedule 1 drug in order to enable research for both animal and human medical purposes. Declassification could also help prevent pet owners from accidentally overmedicating their animals in the absence of proper guidance from a medical professional.

In September, Republican senator Orrin Hatch of Utah introduced a bill that would facilitate research on use of marijuana-based medications, concurring that the drug is over-regulated, although he continues to oppose recreational use of the drug,.

Some veterinarians note that without sufficient evidence, it remains unsafe to use marijuana products on animals, with concerns about potential toxicity.

Yet researchers are continuing to wait for clearance to proceed on various relevant studies, such as use of marijuana for dogs with osteoarthritis, pruritis and epilepsy. Some research on use of products with CBD has been stopped until federal approval is granted. Gaining approval has been difficult due to government requirements, which continue to be an obstacle to moving forward.

Key Takeaways:

  • people using drugs to reduce pain on their pets. Oils and powders banned.
  • D.C standing in the way of the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes.
  • FDA making marijuana a schedule 1 drug...hence illegal. You can be arrested for using it.

"The concern our membership has is worry about people extrapolating their own dosages, looking to medicate their pets outside the realm of the medical professional"

Hemp Oil and Arthritis

Subject: Hemp Oil and Arthritis





Inflammation is associated with a host of diseases including cancer and arthritis. There are compounds in food and natural ingredients that can limit the expression of molecules from immune cells thus reducing inflammation. These include the superfood hemp. Hemp has always been associated with marijuana and has typically been under-advertised. With the latest research, compounds in hemp oil are being tested for use in treating arthritis. Currently some DVMs use the oil in supplements to help arthritic pets. It is likely that in the future, this will hold true for people as well.

Key Takeaways:

  • Hemp oil is seen as a natural ingredient to help with inflammation.
  • One oil in hemp, dihomogamma-linolenic acid, has been shown to promote interleukin and be anti-inflammatory.
  • All of this can help with arthritis in taking away the inflammation and letting the body heal.

"By replacing hundreds of drugs with one simple natural ingredient, like hemp oil, plus an improved diet, arthritis could become a disease of the past and saving consumers millions of dollars in medical bills."

Subject: Pot for Pets?





If you’re contemplating weed to alleviate arthritis or anxiety in your pet, be sure you educate yourself on the different types. It isn’t uncommon for the family dog to get into a batch of pot brownies and become very ill. This is because cannabis for pets is made only from hemp and contains only CBD, not THC. THC can cause adverse symptoms including nausea, pain, and vomiting. Canna-Biscuit is a CBD treat made especially for pets and has been reported to help older animals with age-related issues such as anxiety due to hearing loss.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although there is not accurate research, experience from pet owners shows it has a positive effect on pets
  • In states such as Oregon pets are not allowed to be prescribed CBD
  • CBD is known by pet owners as being good for anxiety as well as living with cancer or bad limbs.

Billy, an 11 year old living in Northern Ireland, will be the first person to receive a medical marijuana prescription in the United Kingdom. Billy suffers from severe epilepsy, which prevented more traditional medical treatments. His doctor agreed to prescribe it in the wake of overwhelming evidence of the success of Cannabidiol in treating his condition. Where previously Billy would experience up to 100 seizures a days - Billy has not experienced a seizure since starting his treatment 300 days ago in the United States. His mother also notes that it has helped with Billy's Autism - making better eye contact when he plays and communicates. To celebrate this largely important decision, the family is hosting an event, that already has 600 RSVP's, in support of Billy.

Key Takeaways:

  • Medical marijuana is increasingly being seen as a potential natural remedy to help combat different types of seizures.
  • CBD oil is helpful in that it's not psychoactive, meaning that it's ideal for treating seizures (in contrast to THC).
  • Billy is the first patient to have received a medical marijuana prescription specifically for seizures, and his condition has improved dramatically as a result.

"Before taking the CBD oil, Billy suffered from up to 100 seizures a day, which was severely damaging to his health, because one seizure could kill him."

Author Janet Williams writes about a bill in Indianapolis that would further the usage of medical marijuana for use among patients with epilepsy. The article lists the how the votes were cast and which side they favored. The author also makes a point to mention that the medical marijuana would be high CBD product rather than the typical form which contains majority THC, meaning that the medical product would not be for "getting high", but in fact would be medicine for epilepsy treatment with no psychoactive properties.

Key Takeaways:

  • -INDIANAPOLIS — Separate bills to legalize the use of cannabidiol to treat epileptic seizures passed the Indiana House and Senate Thursday.
  • -Our goal has always been to give relief to the desperate parents who don’t seem to see any other way to treat their child, and to give them relief from constant epileptic seizures,
  • -Tomes said that the problem with medical marijuana is that there are too many doors open for abusing it,

"Cannabidiol, or CBD is found in the seeds, stalk, and flowers of cannabis plants like hemp and marijuana. CBD has been found to minimize seizures in epileptic patients and has a negligible level of THC, the compound that creates the “high” feeling in marijuana."

Subject: California Could Become a Sanctuary State — for Marijuana





With a new bill proposed in California, the state could soon go against the federal marijuana prohibition. The bill would require a court order to take actions against a person suspected of marijuana use. This also prohibits law enforcement from responding to federal request for personal information or providing information on individuals with a license for marijuana. In addition, the bill also prohibits the transfer of an individual to federal law enforcement for anything marijuana related. The bill has been met with some opposition, especially from law enforcement groups, citing it would limit the effectiveness of their job.

Key Takeaways:

  • California's Assembly Bill 1578, if passed, would stop cooperation between state and federal law enforcement, when it comes to the state's marijuana policy.
  • The law is also aimed at protecting legal marijuana businesses as long as they operate within the state's laws and regulations.
  • Several states have approved marijuana use for at least medicinal purposes. Federal legislation has yet to be passed.

"The proposed law is essentially an attempt to strengthen California’s already existing laws, which conflict with federal policy on the plant."

There's a multi-billion-dollar industry devoted to products that fight signs of aging, but moisturizers only go skin deep. Aging occurs deeper at a cellular level and scientists have found that eating less can slow this cellular process. Recent research published in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics offers one glimpse into how cutting calories impacts aging inside a cell. The researchers found that when ribosomes the cell's protein makers slow down, the aging process slows too. The decreased speed lowers production but gives ribosomes extra time to repair themselves.

Key Takeaways:

  • One cell part, the ribosome, is responsible for the production or synthesis of that necessary protein.
  • Researchers have found a correlation between the aging process and the speed with which ribosomes work.
  • If the ribosomes slow down it appears to give them more time to repair themselves

Subject: Hemp is a Wonder Plant





Hemp is a really amazing plant. Energy drinks are a huge industry, but most of them are very unhealthy and even illegal to be sold to minors. The government of the United States has outlawed a crop that was cultivated for 10000 years. However, there has been an easing on the restrictions from both the state and federal levels recently.

Key Takeaways:

  • Energy drinks are a multi-billion dollar industry while at the same time one of the most criticized. Energy drinks are thought of as poison by many with politicians and healthcare professionals alike trying to eliminate the industry.
  • bills have been passed in the EU and the US to ban sales to minors. I’m not sure why. The only thing that ought to scare is the sugar content. That doesn’t change the fact there are growing health concerns, warranted or not.
  • With the power food hemp, its products have ingredients everyone can read and understand right away: carbonated water, beet sugar, citric acid, guarana extract, caffeine, ginseng extract, and natural flavor. Most importantly, it doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup.

"As cannabis continues to legalize, hemp is a wonder plant with never ever benefits, and it will continue to integrate in consumer products like RMHB."

Subject: Change likely to make CDB oil accessible





Due to the efforts of one parent with a child that suffered from seizures, cannabis treatment for the disorder may be likely in the future. Sally Schaeffer helped pass Lydia’s Law in 2014, which hopes to allow research on the use of the drug. However, wording in the law has forced doctors to apply for an FDA investigational license. An alteration to the law next week is hoping to change that. The bill will hopefully at least allow people in Wisconsin to legally own the oil. The government is trying to get it legalized at a national level as well.

Key Takeaways:

  • State Act 267 – now Lydia’s Law – was passed in April 2014, supporters hailed it as a potential alternative to traditional epilepsy medications.
  • The bill (Lydia's Law) had a flaw- doctors had to apply for an FDA investigational license. New legislation is happening so now people can legally possess the CBD oil in the state of Wisconsin.
  • In no way does this mean that the use of medical or recreational marijuana is allowed.

"After two years of a stalemate in the state government, a bill legalizing the use of cannabidiol as seizure treatment may finally become useful."

For all of our history we as a people have been using plant remedies and medicines for our greater good. Recently we've seen the sea step in and begin to ban a lot of what were for centuries considered the best natural medicines. Pharma then comes in and somehow gets a patent for them.

Key Takeaways:

  • Marijuana and THC – a well-known cannabinoid compound – are both illegal. And yet, Big Pharma companies mass-produce and sell synthetic THC formulations
  • Regardless of how one feels about Marinol it is exceedingly hypocritical of the FDA to approve of it while the DEA continues to prosecute marijuana to the fullest extent.
  • If these compounds are so dangerous, why on earth would Big Pharma be synthesizing them to make medicine?

Subject: Huge study finds a billion people suffer from high blood pressure





High blood pressure, or hypertension, is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease due to strain being put on the blood vessels and major organs of the body. Forty years ago, the main population to have the condition was the rich. These days, the poor make up a majority of the population with hypertension. This is believed to mainly be due to poor diet. It is estimated that just over 1.1 billion people today have the condition, which is double that of 40 years ago.

Key Takeaways:

  • The number of people with high blood pressure has almost doubled in 40 years to over 1.1 billion worldwide, scientists said on Wednesday.
  • The increases are especially significant in Africa and South Asia, the researchers said, and could be partly due to poor nutrition in childhood.
  • The condition is caused by a number of factors including having a diet high in salt and low in fruit and vegetables, and not taking enough exercise.

"The increases are especially significant in Africa and South Asia, the researchers said, and could be partly due to poor nutrition in childhood."

Subject: Is your relationship with food on the rocks?





Not everyone can manage to have a healthy relationship with food -- or, at least, that's the way it seems. Others seem like they're able to just eat whatever they want and stay alright, while others feel like they're addicted. Still, others bounce from diet to diet. Which are you? "Is your relationship with food on the rocks?" helps determine if your relationship with food is healthy, and what you can do about it if it's not.

Key Takeaways:

  • What, when and why we eat is so wrapped up in social and emotional factors that it goes way beyond simply fueling the body. With millions of Americans on diets every day, it’s challenging to tease out the truly disordered tidbits from what is considered “normal” eating.
  • People with eating disorders often become obsessed with pinning recipes, watching the Food Network and preparing elaborate meals and desserts that they themselves are unable to eat. This high level of preoccupation makes people feel like food is all they can think about.
  • The weight loss industry is a multi-billion dollar entity, and it is so seductive! Miracle meal plans, magic shakes, fat-incinerating supplements, you get the idea. Catchy claims draw people in, then drop them. Hard. Rapid weight loss can happen, but it doesn’t last.

In the past after a report on sugar and its contributions to heart disease, school cafeterias changed the menus. Before that can happen again to prevent that from repeating, a few things have to change. To learn more about research on nutrition and how it affects you, read more here in the article.

Key Takeaways:

  • The tampering of this Harvard research paper impacted 50 years’ worth of research on heart disease and nutritional science.
  • This transition contributed significantly to the current obesity problem, which costs over $100 billion in annual estimated health care costs.
  • The tampering of this Harvard publication reveals the damaging effects from industries meddling with scientific research.

"By pressuring universities to be transparent with the sources of their financial backers, and by increasing public funding for university-led research, I am confident that people will be able to once again deem scientific publications trustworthy."

Curcumin Helps Alleviate Depression
TopPreviousNext

Subject: Curcumin Helps Alleviate Depression

Curcumin is a phenolic acid that can be sourced from the cooking spice turmeric. It acts as a powerful antioxidant in humans and protects the body's cells from dangerous free radicals (harmful by-products that are released into the cells during oxygen related reactions). Provisional studies suggest that it may also have many more health benefits. There is also some evidence that curcumin or turmeric may help alleviate the symptoms of certain skin diseases, viral infections, diabetes, colitis, stomach ulcers, and high cholesterol. Once again, the ancient herbal remedy is being celebrated as a modern wonder drug. But perhaps the most promising results have been seen in the use of curcumin to treat depression.

Curcumin2

Curcumin vs. Prozac

If there's one thing Big Pharma fears more than anything else it's competition from the outside. Because herbal medicines have far fewer and less serious side effects than prescription pills, they would be the logical choice - if only they worked as well. Well, there is now irrefutable, ironclad scientific evidence that an herbal remedy is every bit as effective at treating depression as one of the most popular prescription antidepressants.

When researchers with the Department of Pharmacology of Government Medical College in Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India conducted a controlled clinical study comparing the effects of curcumin and Prozac, they didn't expect to make national, even global news. Although the popular herbal remedy is widely used in India, curcumin had never been subjected to rigorous scientific testing for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). The most serious and chronic form of the disease, major or clinical depression affects about 3 percent of population at any given time. The idea that a chemical compound from a popular native spice could compete with Prozac seemed far- fetched to those conducting the study. But after 60 patients diagnosed with MDD were randomly administered curcumin, fluoxetine (Prozac), and a combination of the two, the results spoke for themselves.

With the help of the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, 17-item version (HAM-D17), researchers determined that curcumin was just as effective as Prozac at treating serious depression. Because the study utilized the latest research tools and followed strict testing guidelines, it became the first published report that indicated the efficacy of turmeric or curcumin in the treatment of depression. What the report did not take into account, however, were the serious side effects those who take Prozac endure; the most serious of which include anxiety, seizures, racing heartbeat, trouble sleeping, and suicidal ideation.

How Curcumin Treats Depression

Shortly after the results of the aforementioned study made news, researchers started looking for answers. It was not enough for Western scientists to know that curcumin is effective in the treatment depression, they also had to know how. As you might imagine, the how has proved more challenging than the if. This is not at all surprising, since curcumin has diverse biological properties that are difficult to study separately. So, while the mechanism of action is poorly understood, the effects of curcumin intake are well documented, particularly with regard to neurotransmitters.

As their name implies, neurotransmitters send messages to the billions of neurons in the human brain. Some of these neurotransmitters are responsible for regulating brain functions such as mood, memory, appetite, and sleep. Known as "feel-good" neurotransmitters because they help maintain mood balance, dopamine and serotonin play a role in depression. How do we know? For starters, studies have confirmed that people who suffer from clinical depression have consistently low levels of both neurotransmitters.

Once again, we aren't sure how curcumin extract works its magic, but testing has shown that those who take it have higher serotonin and dopamine levels. That fact alone might account for the improved mood those that take the dietary supplement have consistently reported. Although researchers will undoubtedly get to the bottom of this ancient mystery, it enough for most patients to know that curcumin is a safe and effective treatment option.

Bulletproof coffee - coconut and butter does improve health

Subject: Bulletproof coffee - coconut and butter does improve health

A cup of coffee is a common thing that most of people drink in the morning. However, since many people realized that coconut oil and butter are healthy fats (Axe, 2016), they started replacing cream with them. This coconut and/or butter coffee is known as bulletproof coffee and it is a new trend of healthy morning drink. It has been extremely popular all over the world.

Coconut oil has so many benefits for your body, such as:

· Increases your energy - its ingredient, MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides), is absorbed by the body and metabolized as fuel more quickly (Tifanny, 2016).

· Improves your immune system - There is a lot of lauric acid in coconut oil that is effective to prevent and cure many viruses (WebMD in Tifanny, 2016).

· Improves brain function – Its fatty acid plays an important role in memory and brain functions (Axe, 2016).

· Promotes heart health – Coconut oil contains good cholesterol that is good for your heart (Axe, 2016).

· Acts as anti-inflammatory – Antioxidant content makes coconut an effective anti-inflammatory food that help reduce arthritis (Axe, 2016).

· Is good for hair and skin – It is able to smoothen and tighten the skin, as well as maintain healthy hair (Axe, 2016).

On the other hand, butter also offers many advantages for your health, such as:

· Prevents and treats many diseases - Omega 3 fatty acids in butter are essential for growth, as well as prevention and treatment of arthritis, coronary artery disease, cancer, inflammation, and high blood pressure (Leonard, 2016).

· Improves your brain, blood circulation, and hormonal system – It helps prevent neurodegenerative and heart diseases, increase energy expenditure, and act as anti-inflammatory (NN, 2014).

· Is good for bones and blood circulation – Butter contains vitamin K that plays an important role in blood clotting and keeping the bones strong (Leonard, 2016).

· Helps with weight loss – It makes you feel full for a longer period and its conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is an effective aid for losing weight (Leonard, 2016).

· Reduces caffeine sensitivity – Butter fat can protect the stomach from shakes and nausea caused by caffeine (Leonard, 2016).

· Boosts the energy – It provides more sustained energy for the body (Leonard, 2016).

· Accelerates metabolism and digestion – Vitamin A, D, and E contained in butter are easily absorbed by the body and stored in gastrointestinal tract (Axe, 2016).

Based on the facts above, coconut and butter coffee is a healthy drink. However, excessive consumption of this bulletproof coffee is not good. Healthy fats can only function effectively in the body if the amounts taken are mooderate, not more and not less. Moreover, drink this coffee as the replacement of your breakfast is not recommended since it does not have enough essential nutrients (Gunnars, 2016).

The Question is can you get all the probiotics you need from yogurt?

Well, you'll get some probiotics from yogurt, but it won't be the same as what you'll get in a name brand probiotic supplement.  While most yogurts measure their probiotic count in the millions, by the time it gets through the digestive system, it'll be a lot less.  By contrast, name brand probiotics like Europharma's colon & bowel probiotic provide 20 billion probiotic bacteria in just one capsule. 

For reference, it takes 1,000 million to make even one billion.

Don't forget calories, consuming yogurt adds calories to ones diet,  with todays overweight America, why should you have to consume calories to get your beneficial bacteria?  Taking Enteric Coated probiotic, provides the probiotics where it is needed in the small and large intestines, and contains zero calories.

Probiotics for Oral Health

Subject: Probiotics for Oral Health

Bacteria usually makes people think of organisms that cause disease. The truth is that there are countless types of bacteria and while some of them do cause disease, there are millions of bacteria that are beneficial to the body. For optimum health, the body should consist of about 85% healthy bacteria.


These healthy bacteria help with;

  • Protection against colonization of unhealthy bacteria such as Candida.
  • Nutrient and vitamin absorption.
  • Protection from allergies.

Bacteria

Sourcing Healthy Bacteria

The information that the human body is dependent on good bacteria for healthy functionality only recently came out and with it came a plethora of food products designed to promote the growth of healthy bacteria such as Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG.

Food that are good for the production of healthy bacteria in the body are called probiotics. Fermented foods such as yogurt, miso and sauerkraut are great probiotics however these food have to be unpasteurized as the pasteurization process kills all of the bacteria in food, both good and bad.

While most bacteria is present inside people's guts, there are some that occur both in the intestinal tract and the mouth. Streptococcus salivarius is a major member of the microbes that make up the healthy bacteria inside of a person's mouth.


The Colonization of S. Salivarius in the Mouth

Oral Streptococci are one of the first bacteria to colonize the mouths of newborn humans. For bacteria to colonize the mouth, it must first avoid the body's natural defenses against colonization from foreign microbes and resist the forces of saliva. To resist these forces, streptococci have developed adhesives that interact with the exposed areas of the mouth to keep them securely fastened to the area that they wish to colonize.

There are two main types of surfaces in the mouth. These are the hard and non-shedding surfaces of the teeth, and soft tissues whose surfaces have cells that are constantly being replaced such as the tongue and cheeks. S. mutans and S. Sangunins have tropisms that enable them to stick to the surfaces of the teeth while S. Salivarius has adapted tropisms that enable it to adhere onto the soft tissues.

All of these areas of the mouth are constantly coated with saliva. Saliva provides a variety of molecules that are ideal for streptococcal bacteria to interact with and adhere to. The thin films of saliva within the mouth vary in thickness and chemical composition at different points. Therefore different locations in the mouth consist of saliva that has more or less favorable receptors to the adherance properties of streptococci. For example, streptococci located on chips in teeth exhibit varied properties in their ability to bind to salivary proteins in those locations.


Streptococcus and Healthy Mouths

Streptococci's process of colonization makes it difficult for pathogenic bacteria to stick to the host. With the emergence of the knowledge that bacteria in the mouth promotes health, new strains of S. Salivarius such as K12 and K18 have been developed to help fight oral health problems that people deal with every day. These probiotics are designed as mouth washes that a person gargles for direct application. Once there, these probiotics create bacteriocin-like inhibitory substances called Salivaricin A and Salivaricin B that have the ability to fight infection.


Maladies Treated by S. Salivarius

Tonsil Stones: Tonsil stones are produced by the unchecked accumulation of bacteria that produce sulfur. The debris created by this bacteria then accumulates in the tonsils. Oral probiotics break down these unwanted globs.

Bad Breath: When the body sleeps the brain sends signals to the mouth to reduce its production of saliva. The reduction of saliva turns the mouth into an environment that is more favorable to the growth of bacteria that thrives in dry and anaerobic conditions. The proteins produced by S. Salivarius K12 inhibit the growth of this bad-breathe causing bacteria.

Ear infections: The misinformed believe that ear infections start from outside the ear. The truth is that they are caused by bacteria that originates inside the throat and then travels up to the ear canal through the Eustachian tube. Beneficial bacteria such as that found in probiotics prevent this from happening by forming a protective bio-film in the throat that prevents harmful bacteria from progressing.


Bacterial Transplants

When it was discovered that bacteria is essential for healthy gut activity, the doctor who made the discovery suggested that if a person is suffering from certain maladies of the stomach or gut or whose healthy gut bacteria has been eviscerated by steroids or antibiotics, said person can get a transplant of bacteria from a healthy donor.

This idea was also applied to a man who came into his doctor complaining of an ear infection. The doctor simply took a sample of ear wax from the person's healthy ear, transferred it into the infected ear and the infection passed.

What is Probiotics?

probioticsProbiotic are microorganisms that offer health benefits to the host. These types of microorganisms can be found in different foods. Probiotics play important roles in regulating proper digestion and intestinal function by balancing intestinal microflora. They are normally consumed in fermented foods that have live cultures such as yogurt. Probiotics are also available in supplement form such as chewable, liquid and capsules. There’re many different strains of probiotics in the world today. But the common ones are Bifid bacterium and Lactobacillus

These friendly bacteria have a number of important roles as listed below:

  1. Producing vitamins
  2. Improving your digestion
  3. Preventing the overgrowth of bad bacteria
  4. Detoxifying chemicals
  5. Relieving symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome
How does bifidus and acidophilus boost digestion?

Bifidus and acidophilus are important bacteria that live naturally in your intestine. The two bacteria work together in order to balance your digestive system and also increase your immunity. Bifidus and acidophilus supply your body with essential nutrients and vitamins. They produce vitamins B, lactase enzyme, vitamins K. An effective dose should contain 10 billion colony forming units. They work together in order to improve immunity and decrease diarrhea & other digestive problems.

Sources of these microorganisms Yougurt

Fresh & unpasteurized yogurt contains bifidus and acidophilus. Pasteurized milk and yogurt will not have these bacteria since the process kill them. Therefore, it is important to opt for those brands that have active and live cultures since they will provide a healthy dose of bacteria.

Acidophilus kefir and milk

This is supplemented or fermented milk that have cultures. Kefir is a type of fermented milk drink that is often found flavored or mixed with fruits. These are just a few sources of these microorganisms.

Conclusion

To sum up, taking a probiotic supplements everyday will promote a good health and also help you in preventing diseases. Nevertheless, not all probiotic supplements are made equally. They have different effect in your body.
