Subject: The Amazing Ayurvedic Adaptogen Ashwagandha

Adaptogenic herbs are special! They can help the body with stress, boost immunity, and promote fast recovery from exercise, to mention a few benefits. One of the world's most effective adaptogen is ashwagandha. This ayurvedic herb can:

  • Strengthen Immune & Respiratory Defense
  • Reduce Reactivity to Stress
  • Promote Daily Energy
  • Bolster Stamina & Endurance
  • Speed Recovery from Exercise
  • Sharpen Focus & Concentration

Daily Energy is from Thyroid support

Ashwagandha helps the body feel more energized through normalized thyroid activity. This herb can boost thyroid hormones T3 and T4 by normalizing the thyroid stimulation hormone (TSH) in as little as 8 weeks.

Bolster Stamina and Endurance

Keeping fit means getting as much out of a workout as one can. Ashwagandha can improve the performance in any workout setting. Cyclists in an 8 week study showed there maximum aerobic capacity the rate at which oxygen is taken up by red blood cells, and respiratory exchange, how much oxygen can be inhaled and carbon dioxide is exhaled. Cyclists found improvement compared to the placebo group studied.

Focus, sharpness, concentration, protect your mind

Adaptogens can help the body adapt to stress, improve energy, and assist the brain in staying more mentally focused. Ashwagandha can protect brain cells even when sleep deprived. It also increases glutathione levels a key antioxidant needed by the liver. One study showed that ashwagandha can slow the decline of memory and mental function in elderly people. An 8 week study showed that this herb can improve working memory and reaction time.

Looking to Improve Memory, Stamina, Endurance, concentration, and energy, give ashwagandha a try for 8 weeks and see the difference.

Subject: Hintonia Latiflora Combined With Key Nutrients for Blood Sugar Control

Type 2 diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate. With certain life style changes, exercise, along with Sucontral D, one can reduce blood sugar.

Hintonia latiflora combined with key nutrients for blood sugar control can:

  • Lower A1c levels by 10%
  • Improve fasting and postprandial blood sugar by 23% and 24% respectively.
  • Balance total cholesterol and reduce triglyceride levels
  • Prevent hypoglycemia - undesirable drops in blood sugar
  • Reduce or eliminate the need for medication in nearly half the patients

The CDC reports that 84 million Americans have pre diabetes which is higher than normal blood sugar levels but not yet considered type 2 diabetes. It is said there is an additional 30 million type 2 diabetes and roughly 24% do not know they have high blood sugar levels.

Hintonia has been clinically studied in Europe for decades, 60 years to be exact, clinically studied to help bot pre- and type 2 diabetes. By the end of these studies, participants in the studies experienced an average of 10.4% improvement in their A1C, and 23.3% improvement in their fasting glucose levels and 24.9% on their postprandial glucose levels. This is quite significant indeed.

In conclusion, the clinical studies proved Hintonia improved blood glucose levels. out of 114 patients 45 were able to reduce their medication and 10 were able to eliminate their medication all together.

Subject: Can sulforaphane help children with autism?





Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli have enormous amounts of sulforaphane. Research has even shown that when this compound is taken in large quantities, it can help alleviate the problem of autism in children. Autism is a very important consideration because it affects about one in ten children right now; this is according to experts. New cases are also increasing worldwide. The author states that the recent increases in autism reporting is due to the fact that vaccination schedules in children are increasing and vaccines deliver toxins to the child which can damage the nervous system. Sulforaphane though has been shown to be a chemical that can help in alleviating autism in children even after they have been vaccinated. The research was carried out by scientists at the John Hopkins University who found out that eating foods that have enormous amounts of sulforaphane can help autistic children by enhancing their social skills, verbal communication ability, and their general behavior. The compound, sulforaphane, acts through activating the genes that shield the cells from inflammation, damage to the genetic material, oxidative stress, and other factors that are linked to autism. The study was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sulforaphane is a compound that is found in large amounts in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and recent research shows it can help children with autism.
  • The latest estimates on the effects of autism on children shows that the condition now affects about one out of every forty-five children.
  • The rapidly increasing spike in autism cases in children is linked to the increased rate of vaccination in children where the toxins affect their nervous system.

"The results of their experiment showed that the sulforaphane group demonstrated considerable improvements in social behavior by the time of the fourth week of treatment."

Subject: Oolong tea inhibits the growth and progression of breast cancer cells





Many persons drink tea for relaxation, stress relief, and to get a caffeine fix but little do they know that drinking tea can help to inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells. Some researchers in both America and China who worked together have found that drinking tea can lead to DNA damage in the cells of breast cancer. Since this tea can be used to prevent also the progression of a tumor, it is hoped that one day they can be a non-toxic means to prevent the growth of breast cancer. In the USA alone, about 250,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018 and about 41,000 are expected to die from the disease. Although there are improvements in the screening for breast cancer, and in treatment, it is noted that more needs to be done to help women. The researchers discovered that tea has long been used in medicinal treatment in China for centuries and reckoned that black tea is used more often than green tea and oolong tea. And although the benefits of green tea in treating cancer has long been known, the use of oolong tea for cancer is not known, so the researchers sought out this tea in their experiment. Using patients from Fujian, China, where oolong tea is grown mainly, they found out that there was a lower incidence of cancer among people who take oolong tea.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many persons drink tea so that it can help them relax or to get their fix of caffeine but they do not know that it can inhibit breast cancer.
  • The lead author on oolong tea and breast cancer observed how it caused morphology alteration and DNA damage in the cells of breast cancer.
  • Over 250,000 women in the USA alone were diagnosed with breast cancer in the year 2018 and it is estimated that 41,000 will die from it.

"Like black and green teas, oolong tea contains several vitamins, minerals, and helpful antioxidants."

Subject: Researchers find that consuming blended protein supplements canimprove energy malnutrition, muscle mass in leukemia patients





Because cancer can quickly accelerate the deterioration of a person’s body, some researchers in China wanted to find out how soy-whey protein blend can help patients with leukemia by considering its effects on protein energy absorption and muscle mass. This is because leukemia patients often experience a decrease in muscle mass and severe protein-energy malnutrition (PEM). Earlier studies have shown that soy-whey protein can promote muscle protein synthesis, so the present researchers wanted to know if it can help leukemia patients before they undergo bone marrow transplant. The patients used in the study were 24 in number and they were divided into two groups. One group took natural diet with soy-whey blended protein (BP) while the second group only took natural diet. From the data it was observed that there was a decrease in protein and energy intake of all the 24 participants. But in the group without the soy-whey diet, there was a significant decrease in muscle-related indicators in half of the patients while 60 percent of the patients who ingested the soy-whey blend protein had muscle mass increase in the arm area.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers in China who investigated the effects of leukemia on patients wanted to know how ingesting soy-whey protein can blend in with protein-energy absorption and muscle mass.
  • The researchers used about 24 patients to test their hypothesis that soy-whey protein can aid leukemia patients and they also used a natural diet only (ND) group.
  • From all the patients about 68 percent who ingested the soy-whey protein before transplantation showed increased improvements in the arm muscle area.

"In the ND group without the BP intervention, the researchers observed a significant reduction in muscle-related indicators (i.e., anthropometric variables, muscle strength and serum protein) in more than 50 percent of the patients."

Subject: Fenugreek reduces menopausal symptoms





According to a study in Phytotherapy Research, the nutrient fenugreek may help ease the symptoms associated with menopause without the unpleasant side effects of traditional hormone replacement therapy. Study participants who consumed 1,000 milligrams of fenugreek extract daily reported a significant improvement in headaches, hot flashes, insomnia, and night sweats, as well as an overall improvement in quality of life. Researchers concluded that fenugreek extract is a safe and effective treatment alternative for menopausal women.

Key Takeaways:

  • A new study that was published in Phytotherapy research looked at the effects of fenugreek extracts on plasma estrogens and postmenopausal discomforts.
  • The present treatment and the conventional one for the symptoms of menopause is hormone replacement therapy which also leaves unwanted side effects.
  • The study that discovered the efficacy of fenugreek extract on menopausal symptoms was done by research in a double blinded placebo treatment using fenugreek on women with menopause.

"Furthermore, the researchers found fenugreek extract treatment is safe and plays a role in the management of lipid profile in menopausal women."

The journal Nutrients has recently published a study showing 500 mg of the supplement ashwagandha when taken over the course of twelve weeks enhances upper and lower body strength thanks to its anti-inflammatory, anabolic, and antioxidant effects. The study took place with a sample size of 38 active men, which were split into an ashwagandha group and a placebo group. Those taking the ashwagandha had improvements in both squat and bench press, while experiencing less muscle soreness after workouts.

Key Takeaways:

  • Current studies, regarding the natural supplement Ashwagandha, build on earlier ones, revealing the root to possess, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anabolic properties.
  • To test the premise that the root aids physical endurance, experts found 38 adult, male, human subjects, all of whom were known to be recreationally active.
  • Recruited subjects received either the herb, or a rice flour placebo, and were closely monitored regularly during observed exercise routines.

"Carried out by researchers from the Center for Applied Health Sciences and Lindenwood University, the study looked at the effects of aqueous extract of the roots and leaves of ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) on strength training performance – which includes muscle strength, body composition, muscle endurance, power, and recovery."

It is common knowledge that omega-3s can promote heart health, but now studies are showing that they can also help children who are suffering from behavioral disorders. A study was published within the Journal of Dietary Supplements that showed kids aged six to twelve showed great improvement in regards to their overall health status and quality of life when they were given doses of omega-3s on a regular basis. The study evaluated exactly 942 children, so the findings are quite consistent.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although Omega-3 fatty acids are well known for their health benefits on the heart, a recent study has shown that it gives good results on mental health.
  • When Omega-3 fatty acids was used on children with behavioral disorders, it was found that it helped improve their mental health and quality of life.
  • 942 children in Spain with behavioral disorders were used for the study and they were given omega-3 fatty acids for a three month period.

"To evaluate the effectiveness of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation, the researchers used the Kidscreen-10 and the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaires (SDQ). The SDQ examines 25 positive and negative attributes, which are divided among five scales: emotional symptoms, conduct problems, hyperactivity or inattention, peer relationship problems, and prosocial behavior."

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."

Elderberry syrup is a potent antiviral that offers excellent protection against influenza A and B, staph, salmonella poona, and herpes simplex. According to a double-blind Israeli study, people who took elderberry syrup at the first signs of flu symptoms experienced improvement within two days. Another study conducted by Norwegian researchers confirmed similar findings. Elderberry syrup is bad news to the vaccine industry because pharma strongly promotes the notion that the flu vaccine is the only protection available to us. Elderberry is also available as lozenges, tinctures, or dried berries. It is available at most health food stores and can be consumed alone or with honey and cinnamon.

Key Takeaways:

  • Elderberries contain anti viral properties that can help with various health issues.
  • Elderberry syrup can be made with 3 simple ingredients: Elderberries, water and honey.
  • Elderberry syrup can cause certain autoimmune conditions to flare up or became worse.

"Measure your liquid and mix in up to equal amounts of honey, then heat gently and stir to combine. I like to add a stick of cinnamon, a few whole cloves and a teaspoon of ginger root during the boiling process for synergetic effects and flavor."

Cannabis is routinely used for palliative care in Israel, and Israeli researchers did a study of over 2900 late-stage cancer patients treated with medical cannabis between 2015 and 2017 to evaluate how effective it was as a treatment. Most of the patients complained of sleep disturbances, very severe pain, nausea and weakness. The researchers found that 96 percent of the patients treated with the medical cannabis reported improvements in their symptoms, leading the scientists to conclude that medical cannabis is effective and safe for palliative care.

Key Takeaways:

  • Now counting and increasing, there are now about 34 countries, with an equal number of states in the US who have approved the use of cannabis for treating diseases.
  • Although at the federal level the US has not approved the use of cannabis, but as more and more studies come out, hopefully, that will be the situation.
  • Cancer is a leading cause of death in Israel and palliative care is recommended for cancer patients. The Israeli ministry of health has approved cannabis for palliative care.

"They sorted out which types of cancer the patients had, what main symptoms that required therapy were and how severe the pain was for the patients. Then they evaluated the safety and efficacy of this therapy."

Subject: How MCT oil supports brain health and improves memory





MCT oils or Medium-Chain Triglycerides have numerous health benefits. For those with digestive issues, the good news is that they are easily absorbed and metabolized. The body can burn them for fuel as opposed to storing them as fat. They also cause levels of ketones to rise in your blood stream, making them great for weight loss, as a sort of short cut for the keto diet.They help in the development of neurotransmitters so they are great for memory issues. Some recent studies have shown improvement in brain function so they are being studies as a possible route for treatment of cognitive problems such as Alzheimer.

Key Takeaways:

  • The health benefits of MCT oil, which is an important dietary staple for people in tropical climates, have been well documented.
  • Researchers are excited about MCT oil because it has been discovered that it has the potential for treating dementia and other mental health problems like Alzheimer’s.
  • MCT oil far outshines it nearest cousin, coconut oil, in the concentration of fatty acids. It has a high concentration of medium chain triglycerides.

"MCTs have been shown to decrease fat and increase lean muscle mass, and MCT oil is currently sold to promote weight loss and improve athletic performance and endurance. MCTs are also routinely administered to prevent muscle wasting in critically ill patients."

A recent Annals of Saudi Medicine article suggests that black cumin can have significant benefits for the respiratory health of people with asthma. Researchers from Saudi Arabia’s Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University conducted a clinical trial involving 76 asthma patients. They supplemented the patients’ maintenance inhaler regimens with either one gram or two grams of black cumin, or else a placebo. Subsequent evaluation found that those who had received any amount of black cumin supplementation saw better improvement in lung function relative to those who did not receive any.

Key Takeaways:

  • A study published in the “Annals of Saudi Medicine” suggests that taking black cumin along with regular maintenance inhaler therapy is effective for people with asthma.
  • Asthma, which is caused by chronic inflammation in the lungs, is incurable and causes recurring periods of wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing.
  • The researchers who used about seventy-six participants for the study examined how black cumin has an effect on inflammation of the airways and airflow restriction in asthmatic patients.

"Research suggests that black cumin, also known as Nigella sativa, can help people with asthma."

Subject: Is magnesium the secret to ending PMS? Vitamin eases headaches andcramps





The vast majority of women will suffer from common PMS symptoms like cramps, insomnia, headaches, anxiety and mood swings. Roughly five percent of women will suffer more serious symptoms — known as premenstrual dysphoric disorder — involving anger and depression. However, studies suggest that women who take a daily magnesium supplement suffer from less severe PMS symptoms, possibly because magnesium helps promote higher levels of gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter which helps regulate sleep. Women who experience exhaustion as a central PMS symptom are particularly likely to need more magnesium.

Key Takeaways:

  • Seventy-five percent of women suffer from PMS at some point during their life.
  • Magnesium research suggests that it can help with restful nights sleep, reduce the symptoms of pain and tiredness, as well as migraines and mood swings.

Subject: Double-blind clinical trial validates cinnamon as natural treatmentfor primary dysmenorrhea





According to recent studies by Iranian researchers, cinnamon may be an effective natural remedy for symptoms of primary dysmenorrhea, the painful and sometimes debilitating lower abdominal cramps that some women get in association with their periods. The researchers performed a double-blind, randomized study in which women were given either a placebo or 1000 mg cinnamon capsules during the first three days of their periods. The group that got the cinnamon showed a much higher decrease in their dysmenorrhea symptoms, suggesting that cinnamon holds promise as a form of relief.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers from two research institutions in Iran have found that women who have dysmenorrheal can find cinnamon to be of great relief to them.
  • Primary dysmenorrheal is referred to as the pain that many women experience before or during their menstrual period which pain can be severe or mild.
  • The researchers created two groups and it was found in the treatment group who were given cinnamon that they had greater improvement in treatment than the placebo group.

"The Iranian researchers carried out a randomized, double-blind clinical trial to determine the effect of cinnamon on dysmenorrhea. In conducting the study, they divided their women participants into two groups: a treatment group and a control group."

According to a study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements, diabetic mice who were administered magnesium showed improvements in markers for anemia and inflammation. Researchers at the University of Idaban in Nigeria used alloxan to induce diabetes in mice. They then treated some of the mice with magnesium every day for two weeks. The mice treated with insulin experienced improvements in their anemic state, as well as improvements in hematologic and metabolic inflammatory markers. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include nausea, weakness, and loss of appetite.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some researchers in the University of Ibadan, using mice, administered oral magnesium to understand the effect on anemia and diabetic mice.
  • The discovery from the study was that treatment of anemic mice with magnesium improved their state and also it relieved them of inflammatory diabetes.
  • Because people with diabetes tend to eliminate a high amount of magnesium and sugar in urine, they tend to have low levels of magnesium.

"A study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements found that supplementing with magnesium can prevent anemia and reduce inflammation in people with diabetes."

Almonds are a versatile, portable, tasty and nutritious snack food. However, new research suggests that the salad topper may also have more to impart to eaters, particularly if the eaters in question number among the millions struggling under the burden of type 2 diabetes. Of the more than 400 million who struggle with the disease, worldwide, nearly 80 million cases can be found in the country of India, alone. One study, using Indian subjects with type 2 diabetes and elevated cholesterol levels, discovered some interesting results. The subjects were given whole un-roasted almonds in place of 20 calories in an otherwise balanced eating plan. The subjects heart health showed marked improvement. Another study used Chinese participants and allowed 60 grams of almonds a day. Blood sugar levels and cardiovascular aspects were not affected by this study's regime. However, for some subjects with otherwise well-controlled type 2 diabetes, blood sugar serum levels dropped. Almonds may improve inflammation, which is a factor in cardiovascular disease. They also provide vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Key Takeaways:

  • For the people who have diabetes, they have a lot of work to do to deal with it everyday.
  • Understanding the effects of diabetes and what it does will allow people to realize how stressful it could be.
  • There are a lot of studies coming out that indicate almonds to be good for the heart for people who are diabetic.

Sea buckthorn oil can promote liver health and decrease the storage of body fat

More study is now being done regarding lesser known fruits and vegetables, not only for the betterment of human understanding, but also to potentially augment the list of natural alternatives to pharmaceuticals for the improvement of human health.

Healthy lipids and fatty acids have been on the nutrition radar for a while now, as these items are known for having useful bioactive ingredients, including high vitamin content, making them useful for human consumption. Sea buckthorn oil is a new face on the lipid list, but offering some impressive credentials. For example, the plant shows high levels of vitamin A and E, phytosterols and unsaturated fatty acids. One study suggests that the type of oil used by humans effects how much vitamin A the liver stores. The ware-housing effect was considerably upped when rats were given sea buckthorn oil as opposed to soybean oil. Sea buckthorn oil has other pluses too. It can reverse GERD and possibly ulcers, also lower cholesterol and promote heart health. It also reduces inflammation, making it useful for sore inflamed, reddened skin.

Key Takeaways:

  • Every part of the sea buckthorn – oil, leaves, fruit and bark – have been found to have medicinal properties.
  • Based on experiments on rats, sea buckthorn has been found to have high levels of C16 fatty acids and high amount of carotenoids.
  • Sea buckthorn oil, according to the findings, has important effects on the storage of fats in tissues.

What Is Taurine? Separating Myth from Reality

Subject: What Is Taurine? Separating Myth from Reality





Taurine is is an amino acid naturally found in meats and dairy products. If a person consumes a normal balanced diet, they are probably meeting their daily taurine requirements. It is regarded as safe to consume, as long as it is used responsibly in moderation.

It does have numerous health benefits, including improved heart health, sedative effects for those afflicted with neurological disorders, lowering of cholesterol and blood pressure, combating gum disease, and improvement of athletic performance (although there seems to be some disagreement on this point).

A growing source of Taurine is in energy drinks. While usage of energy drinks has resulted in a rise in emergency room visits, the amount of taurine used within should pose no health risk and is not considered a contributing factor.

It should be noted that taurine is not completely understood at this time. Its effects on pregnant/breast-feeding women are unknown at this time, and the safe decision would be to avoid usage. It is also theorized that taurine may be detrimental to those battling bipolar disorders. Only further scientific studies will clarify the benefits/risks associated with taurine.

Key Takeaways:

  • There is confusion and fear surrounding the effects of taurine on the human body.
  • The author attempts to dispel myths regarding taurine and its perceived ill effects.
  • Taurine is an amino acid found in many common foods and is produced naturally by our bodies.

"The only amino acid with its own zodiac sign, it’s falsely been associated with the myth of coming from bull urine or bull semen, probably because its name stems from taurus, meaning bull."

Subject: Can high-protein diets lower diabetes risk?





There is a question on whether, or not high protein diets can lower the diabetes risk. A small weight loss study was done and in it, women on a high protein diet lost weight, but they did not see any improvements in insulin sensitivity, which helps lower the risk of getting diabetes.

Key Takeaways:

  • A high protein diet in post menopausal women does not prevent diabetes
  • Post menopausal women who eat a recommended amount of protein in their diet improve their insulin sensitivity better than those on a high protein diet
  • It is unknown why the extra amount of protein does not improve insulin sensitivity. Studies need to be done in men and women already diagnosed with type 2 DM.

"The women who ate the recommended amount of protein saw big benefits in metabolism, led by a 25 to 30 percent improvement in their insulin sensitivity."
