Subject: What is Curcumin ?

Curcumin is a yellow pigment found in the turmeric plant of the ginger family, a popular spice used in curry. It is a polyphenol with anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to increase the amount of antioxidants produced in the body. Curcumin and its curcuminoids are contained in turmeric extracts, which are produced to supplement the high efficacy of the spice.

Turmeric is a herb from the ginger family and is used in India, Asia and Central America to enhance the color and flavor of foods. Turmeric has various medical benefits associated with its active ingredient curcumin.

One of the main claims of turmeric is that it is used to combat inflammation, but most of its anti-inflammatory power is attributed to curcumin. Curcumin is used in many different forms and has several potential health benefits. Below we outline some of the many potential benefits of turmeric and turmeric. It is the safe and effective alternative to OTC drugs.

Subject: Curcumin and Grapeseed

Smoking, Chemical exposure, pesticides, nutrient deficiencies, to much sun exposure, and over the counter drugs and prescriptions can cause cancer. In the news, there are forever chemical roundup found in our water supply, it is no wonder we are laden with cancer as a society.

Fortunately, a healthy cancer preventing diet along with natural plant compounds can be far more effective and cost a lot less than conventional care alone.

Two top suggested natural medicines available right now are curcumin and grape seed extract. These two herbs are an amazing pair, curcumin is a fat soluble herb to fight oxidation on the fatty oil side in the body and grape seed extract is water soluble, making it a great antioxidant to fight oxidative stress on the water side of a cell. Cells in the body are made up of oil(fats) and water. The impact of both together on your health is virtually miraculous.

Curcumin neutralizes unstable free radicals that take electrons from nearby molecules, and stop them from creating a cascade of damaged cells. It also reduces inflammation reduces inflammation markers in the body to prevent prevent tissue degradation.

Curcumin has been shown to stop the changes that happen from free radical damage causing normal cells to become cancerous, and tumorous formations, and can even stop cancer from metastasizing or migrating to other parts of the body. Published studies anticancer activity have found that it can suppress breast, prostate, liver, skin, colon and lung cancer cells.

Curcumin Must Be Absorbed To Be Useful

One of the challenges or using curcumin for cancer prevention and treatment is that not all curcumin extracts are easily absorbable into the body. Blending curcumin in Turmeric essential oil enhances absorption and provides the additional benefits of ar-turmerone, a compound in the oil.

Curcumin Makes Chemo More Effective

There is big potential for curcumin when used with conventional treatment. BCM-95 curcumin, through research, has shown to sensitize human colon cancer cells to chemotherapy treatment where it would otherwise be resistant to this form of treatment. In some cases tumor recurrence rates can be as high as 60% but when treated with curcumin while under conventional treatment, curcumin boosted the effectiveness of the chemo drug 5-fluorouracil against cancer stem cells.

Curcumin has great potential in conjunction with conventional cancer treatment and recovery. It has been found that as chemo treatment progresses, cancer cells become resistant to the chemo treatment and the dosage has to be increased as the treatment continues increasing the toxic side effects. Fortunately, curcumin taken in conjunction with conventional cancer treatment can improve the effectiveness of chemo and so the dosage can be lowered reducing the toxic side effects for individuals. This is good news!

Curcumin Protects The Body During Cancer Treatment

In a clinical study with curcumin, it showed to alleviate side effects of one of the most common treatments of prostate cancer known as external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) where the doctor uses radiation to destroy tumorous cancel cells. This sort of therapy has many side effects making it a difficult therapy for most men. I often causes sexual dysfunction, digestive problems, urinary tract pain and loss of control. The higher the radiation dosage the more effective the treatment is but this causes significant discomfort, that is why most doctors lean towards lower dosages which makes the treatment less effective.

The clinical study administered 3000mg of BCM-95 curcumin that is 1000mg x 3 per day or a placebo one week before therapy started and during the treatment length. Each capsule of curcumin contained curcuminoids, curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, bisdemethoxycurcumin, and essential oil of turmeric, this is a full spectrum curcumin supplement.

At the end of the treatment which lasted 20 weeks the most dramatic difference between the two groups in the study was urinary symptoms. The curcumin group said a 50% decrease in symptoms or side effects of the radiation. Also, researchers noted that the curcumin did not reduce the efficacy of the EBRT.

Black pepper and turmeric turn out to provide complementary effects, with the piperine in black pepper making it easier for your body to absorb and use the curcumin in turmeric. Piperine helps protect curcumin from inflammatory processes long enough for the body to use it. Curry powder, which contains both turmeric and black pepper, is perhaps the most obvious way to get bother piperine and curcumin in your diet. However, if you truly hate the taste of turmeric, there are supplements available that have both black pepper and turmeric in them.

  • Due to piperine that is contained in pepper that boosts the body’s ability to digest substances, it helps to take turmeric with black pepper.
  • Black pepper and turmeric have lots of similarities when it comes to the health benefits they provide and both are considered aromatic spices.
  • The yellow color of turmeric comes from the compound curcumin which it contains while the black color of black pepper comes from piperine.

Subject: Irritable bowel syndrome RELIEF: 6 ways glutamine can help, according to a new study





Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) doesn't just cause uncomfortable digestive symptoms, but it also can result in intestinal hyper-permeability, which decreases the rate in which your body can absorb vitamins and nutrients that are required to thrive. An amino acid called glutamine can help by reducing the rate in which intestinal hyper-permeability occurs, allowing your system to absorb primary nutrients in a much more effective manner. It also showed to reduce the symptoms of IBS all-around.

Key Takeaways:

  • About 45 million Americans have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and they know this can be really upsetting because sometimes they have constipation and diarrhea with it.
  • The journal Gut contained a 2018 study that could be of help to people with IBS because it assessed the effectiveness and safety of an oral glutamine supplement.
  • Glutamine is an amino acid, among millions of amino acids produced by the body and that can also be found in food which are building blocks for protein.

"In the quest to find natural solutions for IBS or digestive upset, adding a glutamine supplement to a well-balanced diet could be the next key step."

A team from the University California, Davis recently completed a study to see what impact turmeric-containing herbal supplements have on sebum production or transepidermal water loss, and to compare this with the effects of pure turmeric supplements. The 28 volunteers who completed the full test took the turmeric-containing herbal supplement, a supplement with only turmeric, or a placebo for four weeks. While none of the treatments impacted sebum production of the skin, the turmeric-containing supplement did reduce transepidermal water loss, which suggests that it improves the skin’s barrier function.

Key Takeaways:

  • 30 individuals were used in this study and they were given either a placebo, a turmeric supplement, or a herbal supplement that contained turmeric.
  • At the beginning and the end of the study which required the participants to take supplements twice a day, the researchers evaluated facial sebum and transepidermal water loss.
  • It was found that intervention supplements did not result in any side effects but herbal supplements containing turmeric had no effect on facial sebum.

"A study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food reported that turmeric-containing herbal supplements can be used to improve skin barrier function."

  • MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides and is the sort of fat that is found in coconuts but in MCT oil it is more concentrated.
  • The keto diet involves consuming a high amount of fat in the diet and reducing the intake of carbohydrates to low levels.
  • Not all fats are created equal for your information but the type found in MCT oil is the sort your body uses for fuel.

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."

A team of researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles have found a link between their female subjects' gut bacteria and higher levels of anxiety, irritability, and distress. Subjects whose fecal matter contained the bacteria strain Prevotella displayed an increased number of neural connections linked to emotional, attention, and sensory brain regions. The findings of this study may help explain why individuals with irritable bowel syndrome and functional bowel problems are more prone to developing depression and anxiety.

Key Takeaways:

  • Scientists have now proven a link between gut microbes and emotions in humans
  • Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles observed 40 healthy women and attempted to identify brain and behavioral characteristics based on their gut microbiota profiles.
  • These results support the age-old assumption that there is a connection between gut microbes and emotional response.

"This is the first time that behavioral and neurobiological differences associated with microbial composition have been studied in this way."

Subject: Toxins in Your Fast-Food Packaging?





Fast food isn’t exactly known for its health benefits, but a new U.S. study suggests even the packaging may be harmful. That’s because the study found one-third of fast food packaging contains chemicals that give it stain-resistant, water-repellant and nonstick properties. The trouble is these fluorinated chemicals have also been linked to an increased risk of certain cancers, hormone problems, high cholesterol, obesity and immune suppression in human and animal studies.

Key Takeaways:

  • Testing on more than 400 samples from restaurants nationwide revealed that nearly half of fast-food wrappers and one out of five paperboard food boxes contained detectable levels of fluorine, said lead researcher Laurel Schaider. She's an environmental chemist at the Silent Spring Institute in Newton, Mass.
  • Previous studies have linked some fluorinated chemicals such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) to kidney and testicular cancer, low birth weight, thyroid disease, decreased sperm quality, pregnancy-induced high blood pressure, and immune system problems in children, the study authors said in background notes.
  • Major U.S. manufacturers voluntarily phased out PFOA and PFOS for most uses starting in 2011, but other countries still produce them. These study results show that fluorinated chemicals are still widely present in food packaging, the authors said.

"Major U.S. manufacturers voluntarily phased out PFOA and PFOS for most uses starting in 2011, but other countries still produce them."

It isn't actual radioactive energy that you think about, but what if your drink actually contained traces of this substance? What you learn in this article might shock you but it is important to know.

Key Takeaways:

  • Ultimately, in the interest of protecting public health, the federal government closed down the Bailey Radium Laboratories (PDF) -- the company that made RadiThor -- and radium-containing energy drinks disappeared from the consumer market by 1932.
  • Today, the energy drink market is occupied by drink formulations that rely on the stimulant caffeine to invigorate their customers and provide them with the enhanced "energy" that they seek.
  • Caffeine -- the commonplace ingredient in coffee, tea, chocolate and cola -- may not be as exotic as radium, but it actually is a stimulant, so customers do feel energized, and it isn't very dangerous to health.

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).

Cinnamon and blood sugar


Obtained from the cinnmon tree, cinnamon bark has been put into a broad variety of uses, most commonly as the spice with a powerful aroma and flavoring added foods across numerous cultures in the world. Tucked beneath its appeal as a food flavoring, however, is an important health benefit: it has been shown to reduce blood sugar in the human body, making it an invaluable tool for regulating sugar levels among type II diabetes patients.

Cinnamon also contains magnesium

A strong connection exists between the magnesium contained in cinnamon and reduced blood sugar levels among diabetes patients. Magnesium is an essential element that is needed for over 300 different enzyme processes in the body.  Enzymes are involved in the processing of sugar in the human bloodstream. Increasing the availability of this mineral in the bloodstream, therefore, results in reduced blood sugar levels. Should you choose to try this natural remedy, the best variety according to researchers is Ceylon cinnamon, which despite its higher cost has been shown to be more effective in human body, therefore offering the best alternative to those looking for remedies with no side effects unlike medications your doctor might prescribe. 

If you want to take control of your blood sugar,  give cinnamon bark powder, capsules, and tablets a try!

Subject: Why Is Agave Nectar A Better Sweetener Than Sugar?

agave plantWhat is agave nectar

 

Agave nectar, also called agave syrup, is sweet liquid that tastes similar to honey, but has unique properties that make it a better sweetener than regular sugar. Agave plant is native to the Mexico region, and the locals have been using it for centuries to produce fermented alcoholic beverages, and incorporate it into various recipes. Agave nectar is less viscous when compared to honey, although it has the same level of sweetness. If compared to sugar, the benefits of Agave nectar are obvious since it has a lower glycemic index.

Agave Nectar is Associated With a Reduced Glycemic Index

Why is glycemic index (GI) so important when talking about sweeteners and other food products? GI measures how quickly a food can generate a rise in blood sugar levels. In other words, foods with a high glycemic index can create high blood sugar considerably more rapidly than foods with a lower GI. This parameter is especially useful for diabetes sufferers and individuals affected by obesity. Doctors generally recommend foods and sweeteners with a lower GI since they don't raise blood sugar levels abruptly, which is a protective factor against diabetes and obesity. Agave nectar has a lower glycemic index, which means that the fructose contained in it will convert into blood sugar substantially slower when compared to regular sugar consumption.

Agave Nectar is a Great Replacement for Sugar

Although Agave syrup has a lower GI, it is sweeter than regular sugar when taken in equivalent amounts. In fact, one can achieve the same level of sweetness in a drink or a recipe by replacing the normally added sugar with one third of the same quantity of agave nectar. Also, the taste nuances of agave syrup are far superior when compared to traditional processed sugar, which makes the drinks or foods will taste better and unique. Consider agave nectar as a solid substitute for traditional sugar if you want to experience a better taste and a reduced risk for your health.

Chia Seed

chia seedThere has been a tremendous increase in the number of people using Chia seeds all over the world. This is clearly evidenced by the high demand for these flowering plants in the mint family. Many people have now come to realize that these seeds have a lot of benefits to the body than what is written. Here are some of the health benefits of Chia seeds.

The Chia seeds are one of the great sources of omega-3: the healthy body fats. These poly-unsaturated fats have a lot of health benefits to the body which includes enhancing cognitive performance, reducing inflammation and effectively cutting down the amount of cholesterol in the body. The fiber contained in it also helps in reducing blood pressure as well as reducing the amount of cholesterol even further.

Do you want to lose weight?

Chia seeds are the best food products that will easily and quickly help you lose as much weight as you desire. These seeds have an ability to reduce the arge food by preventing a good amount of food in your body from being absorbed into the systems. This seed also get absorbed in water forming a bulky gel that makes feel full for a long period of time.

Benefits of Chia

The users of these seeds are protected from contracting diseases such as diabetes through its effective blood sugar regulation ability. These seeds are able to slow down the rate at which carbohydrates in our bodies are converted into simple sugars. This, intern regulates the insulin level and therefore prevents an abnormal high level of insulin in the blood.

The Chia seeds are also rich in antioxidant that protects the body from radicals, cancer and aging. The anti-aging effect is also boosted by the high amount of calcium in that helps in maintaining strong bones as well as preventing osteoporosis.

beta alanineBeta alanine

Beta-alanine is classified under non-essential amino acid; which imply that the body is able to produce.

Amino Acid

Amino acids are the building components of proteins. Beta-alanine is a precursor to the compound carnosine; which, functions by regulating the acidic environment resulting from active muscles. In a case where the cellular environment inside the muscle becomes too acidic, then the muscle ceases to function. To prevent this carnosine slows down or attenuates the development of an acidic environment allowing an athlete to perform better or exercise with more work load.

What is Carnosine

Carnosine is very effective at controlling the hydrogen ions that cause then negative effects of lactic acid. Carnosine is understood to be one of the main muscle buffering substances contained in skeletal muscle. Therefore when carnosine prevents the arising of an acidic environment which characterizes a high-intensity exercise, the athlete is able to exercise at high intensities for a longer period.

When carnosine is ingested directly through the mouth it is rapidly converted into beta-alanine and histidine by the enzyme carnosinase as soon as it enters the blood stream. It is thus ineffective when carnosine is ingested directly. However,separate ingestion of beta-alanine and histidine results in these two compounds re-conversion to carnosine after absorption into the skeletal muscle.

Beta-alanine has great benefit in improving athletic performance and exercise intensity, and the building of lean muscle mass.

Research indicates that beta-alanine is the amino acid that highly affects intramuscular carnosine amount as it is the rate-regulating substrate in this chemical reaction (Dunnett and Harris 1999).

Recommended Use for Beta Alanine

It is highly recommended that beta-alanine be taken in daily dosages in order to be highly effective, with dosage amounts varying from different expert opinions as well as dependant on the athlete preference.

Studies have indicated that 28 days dosage of 4 to 6 g/day of beta-alanine supplementation resulted in an approximately 60% improvement of intramuscular rates (Harris et al. 2005; Zoeller et al. 2007)
