Subject: A Healthy Endocannabinoid System ECS Properly Regulates The Following:

Understanding the ECS

Some Endocannabinoids tell out body how much inflammatory messenger molecules to release or with hold. Others tell how fast to move food through the gastrointestinal tract. Still others tell the brain to release or hold neurotransmitters to calm the brain.

  • Stress
  • Memory
  • Mood
  • Inflammation
  • Energy
  • Sleep
  • Metabolism
  • Appetite
  • Appetite
  • Pain response
  • Immune function
  • Nerve signaling
  • Muscle control

Age does Matter!

Aging is a major contributor to a unhealthy ECS function. Lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise, exposure to toxins and stress impact and contribute to a declining ECS.

  • These factors cause us to product fewer endocannabinoids.
  • Contribute to fewer enzymes known to liberate endocannabinoids in the body.
  • Then, Endocannabinoid receptors loose sensitivity and don't respond well.

Any age can consume CBD and benefit from a balanced ECS. Take the plunge and try CBD today!

Subject: Pu-erh tea has hepatoprotective and antioxidant properties





Yunnan Tasly Deepure Biological Tea Group Company recently collaborated with scientists from Tianjin University of Commerce on research into the health benefits of pu-erh tea. The research involved rats on a high fat diet, and discovered that pu-erh tea can help defend your liver against oxidative stress and high glucose levels. Pu-erh tea also appears to be able to protect rats from weight and body fat increases and prevent lipid peroxidation. These results suggest pu-era tea has great potential for preventing fatty liver disease.

Key Takeaways:

  • This study studied the effects of Pu-erh tea extract on live rats and the results reveal that is contains hepatoprotective and antioxidants properties.
  • The study researchers fed rats with a high fat diet for a period of 12 weeks and then gave them Pu-erh tea extract in measured doses.
  • Another way that Pu-erh tea extract can protect against liver diseases is by reducing the glucose level in the body and increase hepatic glycogen production.

"The results showed that the treatment with Pu-erh tea extract prevented the increases of body weight and fat index, reduced oxidative stress, and inhibited lipid peroxidation — all of which contributed to the protection of the liver in rats."

Honey water is exactly what it sounds like — a combination of raw honey and warm water. What may not be so obvious at first glance is its many health benefits. You can drink it in the morning to rehydrate your body and take advantage of honey’s antimicrobial benefits. You can also use it to aid digestion and foster the growth of good digestive tract bacteria. Honey water may even be able to improve your mixture of HDL (“good cholesterol” and LDL (“bad cholesterol”).

Key Takeaways:

  • Drinking honey water can relieve many minor health complaints because it contains natural antioxidants.
  • Honey water can contribute to a healthy gut, can aid in digestion, and improve overall cholesterol levels.
  • The key ingredients to tasty and healthy honey water are raw Manuka honey, fresh lemon juice, and plenty of warm water, which will relieve digestive and heart issues.

"When you wake up in the morning, you’re usually dehydrated. Experts recommend drinking about 20 ounces of water every morning to help stimulate the body, relieve grogginess, and encourage bowel movement."

Subject: Follow your gut to digestive health





"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: Probiotics shown to protect against liver damage, study reveals





Fatty Liver Disease is becoming a real issue and may impact up to 1/4th of the United States population. Thankfully there appear to be means of combating this disease. Probiotics have already contributed in reducing acetaminophen-caused liver disease particularly with lowering of the oxidative stress. Positive gut health and bacteria is also important in maintaining a healthy immune system and can contribute to further protecting the body against Fatty Liver Disease. Eating the right foods, including fermented varieties, helps promote good gut health.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is affecting a lot of people in the US and the number is increasing. Experts put its number at 25 percent of the population.
  • When NAFLD is left untreated for a long time, it can develop into more serious problems such as liver inflammation, scarring, cirrhosis, liver failure, and then liver cancer.
  • Now it has been discovered that gut bacteria has a good effect on liver health and probiotics can be used to halt liver disease.

"The team found that the supplemented mice experienced significantly less liver damage than the control group."

Subject: Can choline be used as an alternative treatment for Alzheimer'sdisease?





While we don't what causes Alzheimer's disease, new research from Arizona State University points to choline as a promising treatment for the condition. When mice consumed large amounts of choline, they showed positive improvements in spatial memory. Furthermore, these positive benefits were evident in their offspring, even though they did not supplement directly with choline. Researchers believe that choline helps to control brain inflammation and neuron death, processes that both contribute to Alzheimer's. Experts recommend that adults take 550 milligrams of choline daily for optimal brain health

Key Takeaways:

  • Although modern medicine has made advancement in several areas, there are some conditions that it is still trying to control without success and one of them is Alzheimer’s.
  • Although there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s, recent research from the Arizona State University shows that choline has some promise.
  • Mice who were bred to exhibit symptoms of Alzheimer’s were used in the research and promising results were obtained when these mice were fed high amount of choline.

"In other words, choline could help protect against this illness across several generations. It was the first time researchers have been able to show the transgenerational benefits of choline supplementation."

Subject: Cranberries improve oral health, study concludes





According to a study in Nutrition Research, cranberries can contribute to overall oral health by fighting the inflammation caused by gingivitis. If gingivitis goes untreated, it can lead to gum disease and periodontitis. In adults, both periodontitis and gingivitis can lead to tooth loss. To prevent these conditions, experts recommend consuming 750 ml of a cranberry functional beverage daily. Furthermore, according to a study in the European Journal of Oral Sciences, eating a serving of cranberries and blueberries daily can protect your teeth against S. mutans, a bacterial strand responsible for tooth decay.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although cranberries, Vaccinium macrocarpon, are usually eating during Thanksgiving, one should make it a habit to take them regularly due to its health benefits.
  • It has been discovered that cranberries are especially good for oral health. A new study found that it can help fight inflammation due to gingivitis.
  • Gingivitis is caused by the inflammation of the gums due to the buildup of bacteria that form plaque. If left untreated, it develops to periodontitis.

"The study, which was published in the journal Nutrition Research, suggests that cranberries consumed as a functional drink can be used as a safe and natural treatment for gingivitis."

Subject: Happier and healthier: Curcumin-rich turmeric can help easedepression and anxiety, researchers find





Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, can have benefits for mental health on top of its many benefits for cardiac and joint health and inflammation. Curcumin is believed to help reduce neuroinflammation — and the cytokines that help cause it — and moderate cortisol levels within the brain, while achieving more balanced levels of dopamine and serotonin. These actions may explain why a 2015 study indicates that turmeric supplementation can substantially improve the effectiveness of antidepressants in many people.

Key Takeaways:

  • The main compound form in turmeric, curcumin, has been found to help in many types of ailments that range from diabetes, to cancer and inflammation.
  • Curcumin makes turmeric a superfood by adding aiding in mental health to the list of health benefits that it can be used to cure for.
  • Australian researchers have found that curcumin can help in curing depression and anxiety when they involved 123 participants in a curcumin treatment and a placebo.

"Curcumin regulates levels of dopamine and serotonin in the brain, and it also decreases the markers of neuroinflammation, which is significant when you consider that inflammation contributes to mood disorders."

Subject: Omega-3s can improve blood flow in the brain and prevent aging,according to international study





The inflammation of brain cells, often associated with a decrease in blood flow, can result in several troublesome cognitive symptoms such as not being able to retain memories. Omega-3s actually have the ability to protect cells against related damage, making them highly beneficial in sustaining optimal cognitive function. Not only can it help with brain health, but omega-3s also improve heart health by reducing triglyceride levels while regulating blood pressure. Both of these help contribute to a reduction in heart disease risk.

Key Takeaways:

  • Omega 3s can be gained from certain foods, such as fatty fish, nuts, and seaweed.
  • Omega 3 Vitamins can improve brain function, correcting depression, anxiety, and preventing memory problems.
  • Taking Omega 3s can contribute to better heart health and lower risk of cancer.

"A study published in the journal Nutrients showed how omega-3 supplementation is beneficial for memory decline caused by aging."

Everyone has heard that probiotics can help us stay regular, but they can do a lot more than that. Taking probiotics can help to boost your immune system. Pro-biotics can lower blood pressure and cholesterol level. They can help you stay hydrated and fight inflammation, both of which can improve the condition of your skin. It has become apparent also that the mind and the gut are interconnected. Therefore, taking probiotics for a healthy gut will support greater mental health.

Key Takeaways:

  • We are constantly being advised to take probiotics because they can help in making us healthy, but there are many more things they can help us in.
  • An unhealthy gut can lead to weight gain because one has constipation and is not able to digest food properly while a healthy gut leads to weight loss.
  • Two factors that can contribute to a sick heart are blood pressure and cholesterol levels. It has been shown that probiotics can reduce both of these.

"A healthy gut means stronger immunity, and when you feed your gut probiotics, it can go a long way in boosting your immune system. We can all use an extra immune boost this time of year."

Subject: Take this happy pill: Deficiency in vitamin D is linked todepression among urban Malaysian women





Vitamin deficiencies are running rampant around the world, impacting a substantial amount of individuals. Over 70% of Malaysian women in urban areas tested positive for a vitamin D deficiency, specifically. The reason so many Malaysian women are prone to vitamin D deficiencies is because they have darker pigmentation, and they are heavily restricted in many forms of clothing. The lack of sunlight exposure due to these characteristics is what potentially contributes to an increase in levels of depression.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is widely known that Vitamin D is linked to calcium and bone growth, but the deficiency has also been linked to depression among Malaysian women.
  • Vitamin D is gotten by the body through skin synthesis when exposed to the sun but these women are deficient through darker skin pigmentation and religious clothing styles.
  • Some of the signs one can perceive when a person is deficient in Vitamin D are back or bone pain, getting sick or infected oftener, and hair loss.

"Based on the study findings, over 70 percent of the urban Malaysian women surveyed were vitamin D deficient."

Foods are often talked about for their health benefits, but little emphasis is ever placed on the mental health benefits of such foods. To reduce the stress in your life you need adaptogens into the diet. Adaptogens are herbs, spices, and mushrooms that can help relieve stress in a natural way. Ashwagandha is a powerful herb that is an antioxidant and aphrodisiac that helps with stress. The root is ground and ingested. Tulsi is another herb that is known for physical well being and can assist those with high anxiety. Two mushrooms, Reishi and Cordyceps, are very potent Adaptogens and reduce fatigue while reducing stress. It helps both physically and emotionally. Finally, the Indian gooseberry known as Amla is cheap and effective. High in vitamin C, it also enhances cognitive functions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Doctors and dietitians alike spoke volumes about the benefits of foods to help physical health but say little about foods for mental health.
  • Adaptogens are spices, herbs, and mushrooms that are used in medicine to provide stress-relief in the natural way but they are often underrated.
  • Ashwagandha is a herb that is a powerful antioxidant and aphrodisiac that can also contribute to stress relief and improve mental well-being.

"With stress being a major part of our lives today, it is imperative to make sure we get enough adaptogens into your diet."

Magnesium is a very important mineral to our bodies and helps with our overall health, more specifically in the muscles and bones. It also helps many enzymes run smoothly within the body and is very important in turning food into energy. However, many people are unaware of the importance of magnesium and suffer from this deficiency. With the deficiency, producing energy cells becomes harder making the relaxation and contraction of muscles more difficult. Consuming foods like nuts, dark chocolate, legumes, grains, leafy vegetables, and even skim milk.

Key Takeaways:

Subject: There is a STRONG link between exposure to endocrine-disruptingchemicals and vitamin D deficiency





Endocrine-disrupting chemicals such as BPA are a group of over 80,000 manufactured chemicals that are present within the products that we use on a consistent basis. These chemicals can unfortunately lead to many health implications such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Studies have even shown that those who are exposed to higher levels of EDCs are more prone to developing Vitamin D deficiencies. All of these harmful health risks show just how dangerous these man-made chemicals can be to our bodies.

Key Takeaways:

  • It has been revealed that countless times Big businesses can make the government to approve their toxic chemicals and their true sinister nature is known after a long time.
  • As a nutrient, Vitamin D has a lot of uses for the body. It promotes bone health, and benefits the brain and immune system.
  • After conducting 1300 studies on endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC), the endocrine society has found that these EDCs can contribute to infertility, obesity, diabetes, and neurological problems.

"But recent research has shown that the hazards of BPA and other endocrine disruptors can even cause vitamin D deficiency — which can cause a whole host of other health issues."

Subject: Omega-3 supplementation lessens symptoms of depression in peoplewith chronic heart failure





A study based in America called "Journal of the American College of Cardiology" has recently released information that points to how omega-3 fatty acids have the ability to improve health outlooks for those suffering from chronic cardiovascular failure known as congestive heart failure. Regular consumption of omega-3 fatty acids have not only shown to positively contribute to remedying cardiovascular issues, but it has also shown to reduce stress, depression, and other psychological issues that many patients face.

Key Takeaways:

  • The condition wherein the heart fails to sufficiently pump blood is called chronic heart failure and is a result of the accumulation of excess fats in the arteries.
  • Many people are now suffering from chronic heart failure because their lifestyle which involves fast food, stress, and sedentary lifestyle contributes to this.
  • The prevalence of chronic heart failure is worrisome because its existence increases the risk of other conditions such as depression, kidney, or liver damage.

"Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for overall health, are now associated with improved symptoms of depression in patients with chronic heart failure."

Bifidobacterium Lactis: The Bacterium That Could Help You Lose Weight & Fight Inflammation

The probiotic Bifidobacterium lactis, or B. lactis, is a powerhouse for gut health. Why is this strain of bacteria so important? One study published in 2015 showed that B. lactis could improve unpleasant and painful symptoms associated with poor gut motility, dysbiosis, and GI hypersensitivity. B. lactis is definitely one of the “good guys” of the gut bacteria world because it contributes to a healthy and balanced microbiome, which positively affects balanced blood sugar and optimal weight maintenance.

Key Takeaways:

  • While probiotics are ingested live organisms that are good for gut health, a prebiotic is food that helps these organisms thrive.
  • Bifidobacterium lactis in fermented milk is good for gut health because it improves gastrointestinal symptoms and well-being.
  • Oral health is tied to gut health in intricate ways. Studies with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has shown this truth.

"A particular strain of B. lactis, known as HN019, has been shown to have a significant impact on those with metabolic syndrome. This probiotic had beneficial effects on inflammation, nitric oxide metabolites, and antioxidant measurements, and the authors of the study stated that if their results are confirmed, supplementation with this probiotic should be considered further."

Amino acid arginine found to be crucial to mental health; low levels contribute to oxidative stress and inflammation

Mental health problems aren't always easy to treat but now that researchers have found an amino acid called arginine may help. This amino acid reduces oxidative tress and inflammation which lowers the risk of developing mental illness such as anxiety and depression. Improving your diet and supplementing with a supplement containing amino acid arginine could be the key to finally beating these conditions and the decreased quality of life they often bring to the patients suffering.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some people struggle with their own mind and they do not know how to cope with it.
  • There are some things that can help someone be okay with themselves and they are more healthy this way.
  • So many things, like arginine, actually have a massive role to play in the battle for people with mind issues.

"Still, the authors argue that more research should be conducted to truly determine the role of amino acids (particularly those that reduce inflammation) in mental health."

Vitamins for Brain Function

Your brain needs good nutrition to be at its best. Vitamin B6 and folate play important roles in neurological and psychological health. The Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA also have vital roles to play, and can be found in seafood, flaxseed and fish and krill oil supplements. B Complex vitamins are constantly used up by the nervous system and must be regularly replenished. Stress and alcohol consumption both increase the depletion rate of B vitamins. Iron and various different minerals also play their own vital roles.

Key Takeaways:

  • While a good quality and nutritional health is linked to health benefits like weight management, healthier digestion and disease prevention, it also leads to long-term cognitive health.
  • Nutritional supplements like vitamins can help to fill any nutritional gap in the diet.
  • Inflammation in the body and gut health have a relevant relationship and it is found that increased inflammation contributes to many diseases.

How Nutrient Deficiencies Can Affect Your Mental Health

We often separate who we are into two separate parts, specifically body and mind, acting a if we are some odd hybrid creature. But, the truth is that the brain is as much a part of the body as the fingers, muscles and hair are. We all expect our diet to affect our waistline, and strength, our energy and our hair's luster, or lack thereof. In reality, since our brains are as much affected by our diet as any other part, it stands to reason that our mind's ability to handle stress, emotions and mental load are very much affected too. All of which is born out by data which shows that diets that are imbalanced and overloaded with sugar, unhealthy fats, and chemical additives are apt to contribute to disease symptoms, like ADHD, depression and anxiety.

When the body lacks specific nutrients, like sufficient protein, it can hamper the body's ability to create needed brain chemicals that aid in our ability to handle emotions and stress. In fact, the brain is comprised of a great deal of fat. So, healthy a diet that has sufficient good quality fatty acids is important fro brain health. Brain health and stamina is affected by an array of nutrients that come from food, including magnesium, vitamin B12, zinc and vitamin D. Their lack can cause or hasten mood and behavior shifts that can become problems.

Key Takeaways:

  • How levels of omega-3 fatty acids can lead to depression, anxiety, and attention difficulties.
  • If you are a vegetarian or a vegan and you are suffering from depression, you may want to make sure you are getting enough Vitamin B12.
  • Foods rich in protein, including nuts, meat, and eggs, contain amino acids which regulate your serotonin levels.

"But the foods we eat also play a role in how we feel mentally as well, and an imbalanced diet can mess with our heads just as much as our stomachs."

Researchers look at the potential of rice bran in treating cardiovascular disease

Malaysian and Chinese researchers recently published a study in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine that explores the potential of rice bran to reduce the platelet aggregation that contributes to harmful blood clots in people with atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases. The rice bran policosanol extract used in the study significantly reduced both aggregation induced in response to a mixture of adenosine diphosphate (ADP), arachidonic acid and collagen, as well as adhesion of platelets to surfaces. More research is needed to explore whether this could be beneficial to a variety of cardiac conditions

Key Takeaways:

  • Malaysian and Chinese researchers recently published a study on whether rice bran can reduce harmful blood clots.
  • The researchers found that rice bran made platelets less adhesive and reduced clotting in response to chemically-induced aggregation.
  • Rice bran is a highly nutritious food, rich in Vitamin B and fiber, with potential far beyond its traditional use as animal feed.

Why your brain fails as you age, what you can do now

It is the mitochondria inside your organelles that produce adenosine triphosphate, and if it does not function now then that is bad news for you. It means that your risk of developing a degenerative disease rises dramatically. No organ in your body is more dependent on energy than your brain, and older people who have their energy impaired open themselves up to such diseases. Additionally, as one ages, their mitochondria is decreased in functions and numbers.

Key Takeaways:

  • A person's mitochondria must function well or they become at risk for degenerative diseases.
  • Damaged mitochondria with badly damaged cells tend to accumulate and contribute to additional dysfunction.
  • With not enough energy, bad cells still will thrive and even multiply, which sums up cancer.

6 Steps to Get Your Cortisol Levels Under Control & Turn Down the Stress

Cortisol is a hormone that is released whenever we are under intense levels of stress. Whenever you are in a situation that causes extreme tension, your brain reacts with what is called a, "fight or flight" response. This response is what contributes to heightened cortisol levels. Elevated cortisol can lead to various health conditions, so it is important to keep it regulated by consuming an anti-inflammatory diet, and by participating in activities that reduce stress such as meditation.

Key Takeaways:

  • To keep your cortisol levels low, switch to a diet that is low in processed foods and high in nutrients, antioxidants, and fiber.
  • Relieve stress with techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, acupuncture, and spending time with nature.
  • Be sure to exercise regularly and get enough sleep to keep your hormones in balance.

Subject: Consuming Cannabis Could Slash Your Chances Of Blood Clots, Stroke: Study





As possession of cannabis slowly starts to become legal, it is important to be aware of the possible effects in those who use the drug. Recent studies have revealed that cannabis may actually contribute to health by potentially decreasing the likelihood of stroke and contribute to brain activity. In a study involving 175 volunteers, researchers observed that cannabis users had an increased systemic flow of blood and oxygen, including within the brain, specifically around the forebrain, related to learning. In addition, head researcher, Dr. Francesca Filbey, states that the primary ingredient in cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which dilates blood vessels, causing a drop in blood pressure, and increasing blood flow.

Key Takeaways:

  • Smoking or eating marijuana (cannabis) can reduce the likelihood of having a stroke because oxygen and blood flow are improved.
  • Studies in the past focused more on cognitive and psychological effects of marijuana. Now researchers are also paying attention to physical effects.
  • Blood flow in the part of the brain that affects learning is increased when marijuana is used.

"Past marijuana research has shown changes in cognitive functions such as memory and executive functioning,"
