As everyone knows, fiber is an important part of the diet of what we consume. The more whole healthy grains we eat, the better off we are. Fiber first acts like a broom through the body system. It helps to keep our colons and cardiovascular system functioning and debris free. This is critical to avoid events such as colon cancer, heart attacks and strokes. Grains also are a rich source of vitamins and minerals one cannot get from meat of vegetation.

Key Takeaways:

  • Research on fiber consumption and risk to non-communicable disease was commissioned by the World Health Organization (WHO) and published in the Lancet.
  • The researchers carried out the study over a period of 40 years and it included 4,635 adult persons that amounted to 135 million-person years.
  • Some of the diseases that were focused on were coronary heart disease, cardiovascular disease and stroke, as well as the incidence of type 2 diabetes.

"New research adds another benefit of fiber and whole grain consumption: They may lower the risk of non-communicable diseases."

Subject: High-Fiber Diet: Can This Lengthen Your Life?





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

Key Takeaways:

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

Subject: The role of magnesium in maintaining health





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:

  • Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral found in the human body. Because of its crucial role in preventing diseases, it is often referred to as the “Master Mineral”.
  • Magnesium is important for the smooth functioning of numerous enzymes in the body that are important for regulation of the system.
  • Magnesium is a vital link in keeping illnesses at a distance from the body. Some of the illnesses it prevents are asthma, diabetes, insomnia, and high blood pressure.

"Magnesium, as one is aware, is a highly important mineral, as it contributes to fortifying human health, especially bones and muscles."

Researchers in India had a problem: fungi in grains that are stored in bulk where making people sick. grains once coated with industrial chemicals to prevent this dangerous fungi from forming prevented the food borne illness, but posed a separate threat to human and animal health in their own right. They decided to try peppermint oil, which possesses anti microbial, anti fungus, and anti oxidative properties to coat the grains for storage as a natural and healthy alternative and have had stellar results in not only repelling the fungi, but vermin as well.

Key Takeaways:

  • The fungi, Fusarium Sporotrichoides, causes the blight that ravages important cereal crops in storage like barley, maize, oats, rice, and wheat.
  • When these blight attacks cereals, they cause the cereals to produce a metabolic product that is toxic to animals and humans.
  • Although synthetic chemicals are used to protect these cereals from contamination by the blight, it has been shown that these chemicals are just as toxic to humans.

"Indian researchers believe the essential oil of the plant can serve as a natural fungicide for Fusarium head blight."

Living at maximum wellness constitutes more than having a disease-free body, where all the parts are doing what they should. Mental health is also a key component to overall health. From PMS symptoms all the way to psychotic episodes, more than 40 million U.S. citizens suffer from a mental problem yearly. Although treating these potentially life-clouding conditions with pharmaceutical grade interventions is the norm, these interventions are not without the possibility of potentially hazardous side effects. A B vitamin, inositol is present in the human brain in large amounts. Scientists are considering whether significant supplementation of the vitamin might be a way to treat an array of mental conditions naturally and without side effects. The vitamin has already been shown to have positive effect in some mental conditions, which makes sense, as significant neural transmissions depend on the use of the vitamin. Moreover, it's also been shown that individuals with lesser amounts of the mood-regulating chemicals, serotonin and dopamine, have lower levels of inositol. Although more research needs to happen in some instances, there is promising research to suggest that elevating inositol levels could prove efficacious for an array of mental conditions, including panic attacks, bipolar mood disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and depression.

Key Takeaways:

  • Scientists have been using inositol to treat people who suffer from mental illnesses and shown to be effective.
  • Studies have shown that people with metal illnesses have less inositol in their brains.
  • If considering increasing inositol, certain foods like beans, whole grains, citrus fruits and nuts contain significant amounts of inositol.

"In fact, other major neurotransmitters depend on inositol to relay messages, making it a key component in a lot of chemical systems in a person’s brain, including the ability to handle stress, learning and cognition, mood, productivity, sleep, and addiction."

Fiber: Nature's Way of Making You Feel Your Best

Humans are supposed to consume at least 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day, but unfortunately, only five percent of us actually fall within the recommended ratio. It is irrational for us to think that we can acquire the appropriate amount of fiber in foods alone, due to most of our diets simply not containing high-fiber foods. You can follow steps such as only using whole grains, and making sure your veggies are green, but some people find the most success in adding a chewable fiber supplement to their diet.

Key Takeaways:

  • While fiber is beneficial because it supports a healthy digestive and immune system, only half of Americans get the daily fiber that they need.
  • Even if you eat healthy, it is still challenging to squeeze the recommended 25 to 30 grams of fiber into your diet every day.
  • Fiber Choice is a chewable supplement comprised of inulin, which is a natural form of fiber found in fruits and vegetables.

"The "fiber gap" exists for two reasons: people think fiber supplements are primarily for maintaining a regular digestive system, and traditional forms of fiber supplements on the market, such as powder or capsules, are inconvenient to take."

The proportions of gut bacteria that you have play a role in your weight loss. Losing weight is something that many people want to achieve in life. Once we get rid of bad eating habits and we eat healthy and exercise as well, then we are on a good path and will lose a lot of weight. There is new research out that shows how our gut microbiota play a big role in our weight loss and nutrition.

Key Takeaways:

  • To lose weight, experts usually recommend a diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains; but for some, gut bacteria may be preventing them from achieving their weight loss goal.

  • Think of the nutrients and vitamins as an army that battles age-related ailments. The best way to build the army is to ear well-rounded and healthy diet. It is especially important to eat well around the age of 40 as that is when the rules begin to change.
  • When a person turns 40, the vitamin B12 should be on the radar. It is important for normal brain and blood function, says Kirkpatrick. Children and younger adults get their B12 from food like eggs, dairy, fish and chicken but as the body ages this vitamin is more poorly absorbed.
  • Lack of vitamin D is linked to colorectal and breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, heart disease and diabetes. This vitamin is important for the absorption of calcium in the body. Great sources are the cereals, grains and fortified dairy.

Key Takeaways:

  • Think of the nutrients and vitamins as an army that battles age-related ailments. The best way to build the army is to ear well-rounded and healthy diet. It is especially important to eat well around the age of 40 as that is when the rules begin to change.
  • When a person turns 40, the vitamin B12 should be on the radar. It is important for normal brain and blood function, says Kirkpatrick. Children and younger adults get their B12 from food like eggs, dairy, fish and chicken but as the body ages this vitamin is more poorly absorbed.
  • Lack of vitamin D is linked to colorectal and breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, heart disease and diabetes. This vitamin is important for the absorption of calcium in the body. Great sources are the cereals, grains and fortified dairy.

"Lack of vitamin D is linked to colorectal and breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, heart disease and diabetes."

Subject: The foods that will improve your focus, according to a nutritionist





It takes a lot of energy to think. In fact the average adult brain uses a whopping 20 per cent of your daily calories, which is much more than any other organ in the body. It’s preferred source of fuel is glucose, which comes from carbohydrate-rich foods like wholegrains, including rye, oats, and brown rice. These foods are high in fibre making them slower digesting, which ensures a steady supply of energy to your brain keeping you mentally alert throughout the day.

Key Takeaways:

  • Want a long, happy, successful life? A good place to start is by feeding your brain (literally).
  • Walnuts, wholegrains, B vitamins, berries, oily fish and pumpkin seeds are among the best foods for brain health.
  • These foods have nutrients that have been tied to everything from staying alert to protecting against dementia.

"Having abundant energy, increased concentration and sharp memory are important for a successful career, as well as a long healthy life. But it’s easier said than done, right?"

Sometimes there is no better inspiration for weight loss than hearing another person's story. Anyone who's ever struggled with their weight understands firsthand how you really feel. They want to provide you with as much help as they can. This is onesuch story. If you want to lose weight, perhaps you've now found the secret.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many people struggle with being overweight, or even obese. It’s a common topic at office visits.
  • As a doctor, I know that excess weight is associated with potentially serious health conditions — high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high cholesterol — not to mention sleep apnea, fatty liver disease, and back and knee problems, among other things.
  • Whether a patient is at risk for medical problems due to being overweight, or if it’s a personal health goal, then it’s my job to provide counseling.

"Esteemed Yale physician and nutrition expert David Katz examined over 58 popular diets and found that the most successful in terms of both weight loss and nutrition consist of “real food.” By that he means plants, whole grains, nuts and seeds, as well as meat (ideally, from animals that ate plants)."

Subject: Yes, whole grains really do help boost your immune system





Whole grains are often the healthiest choice and now the scientists behind a new study on whole grains say there could be another reason to dig in. Whole grains are not only full of vitamins and fibre, but they also contain a substance known as benzoxazinoids or BX. Eating more whole grains rich in BX may help to boost our immune systems, say the scientists.

Key Takeaways:

  • We need certain types of bacteria in our stomachs and intestines to maintain optimum health.
  • Whole grain in our diets helps to increase the "good" bacteria.
  • Men's Fitness has prepared a diet guide to help you shift whole grains into your diet.

"Simply eating whole grains can affect the populations of bacteria living in our gastrointestinal tract."

It is a well known fact that vegetables and fruits and fresh food are much healthier than a heavy grain diet. What most people do not understand is that eating less grain can also mean stronger bones. Along with being healthier it is possible to save your bones with less grain in your diet.

Key Takeaways:

  • 92 percent of LEMTRADA patience had an infusion reaction.
  • We get 500 more calories from grains than we did in the 1970's.
  • We eat 40 percent more grain than we did in the 1970's and need to eat less.

"The outlook for bone health isn't all doom and gloom, fortunately. In 2015, Dawson-Hughes and her team found that certain dietary supplements may counteract the effects of acid on bone. Their study, published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, involved 244 women and men over age 50. Half were given daily supplements of potassium bicarbonate (a potent alkali), the rest a placebo."

Subject: Is the Mediterranean diet good for kids, too?





Putting kids on a diet can be dangerous for them because kids have certain needs. They are still growing and need the proper fuel to do that. This talks about this and about the Mediterranean diet in particular. Before putting kids on any type of diet ask a doctor and do your own research so you don't hurt them.

Key Takeaways:

  • The easy-to-follow Mediterranean diet involves eating mostly vegetables, fruits, legumes, unrefined grains, olive oil and fish.
  • Though the diet also includes skim or low-fat dairy products, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children consume whole milk until age 2, Johnson said.
  • Nuts are also included in the Mediterranean diet, but the academy considers whole nuts to be a high-risk food for choking and recommends caution for children under age 4, Johnson said. And, though the Mediterranean diet includes a modest amount of wine, alcohol is illegal to consume until age 21 in the United States.

"The easy-to-follow Mediterranean diet involves eating mostly vegetables, fruits, legumes, unrefined grains, olive oil and fish."

If you have chronic inflammation from leading an unhealthy lifestyle adopting an anti-inflammatory diet can help. New research is suggesting that regularly eating vegetables, fruits, fish and whole grains, could boost bone health and prevent fractures in women. Foods that fight this inflammation include green leafy vegetables - such as spinach, kale, and collards - nuts, fatty fish, olive oil, fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, cherries, and oranges.

Key Takeaways:

  • Adopting an anti-inflammatory diet is can help counter some of the chronic inflammation that results from leading an unhealthy lifestyle.
  • New research suggests that regularly eating vegetables, fruits, fish and whole grains, could boost bone health and prevent fractures in women.
  • The results showed women with healthier diets did not lose bone as quickly as those with high-inflammation diets, and this is important because after menopause women see a drastic loss in bone density that contributes to fractures.

"It's a natural part of healing, but chronic inflammation could have a negative impact on your body and your health."
