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





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

Key Takeaways:

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

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

Subject: Omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce high insulin levels, and lowerthe risk of breast cancer in the process





The elevated levels of insulin found in many people with obesity can elevate their risk of breast cancer, but new studies show that omega-3 free fatty acids can help mitigate this risk. Too much insulin can increase Akt and Erk1/2 phosphorylation, but omega-3s can help to reduce this effect. Likewise, omega-3 free fatty acids were able to cut down proliferation of MCF-7 cells. The research sheds some light onto why omega-3s appear to reduce the risk of breast cancer, although more research is needed.

Key Takeaways:

  • While having a high insulin level is considered a significant factor in one having breast cancer while obese, omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of breast cancer.
  • The researcher wanted to explore whether omega-3 free fatty acids (FFA) do regulate the signaling pathway of insulin in order to prevent breast cancer.
  • According to the findings it is suggested that omega-3 free fatty acids (FFA) reduce the proliferation of breast cancer cells mediated by insulin and insulin activated phosphorylation.

"Researchers found a link between consumption of omega-3s and reduced breast cancer risk by lowering insulin levels. The study, which was published in Nutrition Research, tested the ability of omega-3 free fatty acids (FFAs) to reduce insulin-induced breast cancer cell proliferation."

Subject: What are the best clove substitutes?





Cloves are a spice that can be added to soups, stews and other dishes to add flavor. However, if a recipe calls for cloves and you do not have any on hand there are other substitutes that you can use. Allspice is an easy substitute because both spices come from the same family. Cardamom is another substitute but does not taste quite as sweet. Use cardamom in conjunction with cinnamon as a substitute for clove, but use less than the cardamom than cloves.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cloves have found much uses by humans. They are not only used in soups and stews, but also used to treat conditions like cancer, diabetes, or obesity.
  • When tasted, cloves taste bitter and some people describe the flavor as being hot. Cloves also have a strong, pungent, and sweet aroma.
  • Allspice can be used as a substitute for cloves because they belong to the same family and it is called allspice due to the combined smell of other spices.

"Allspice can be used to treat bloating, cramping, diarrhea, excessive flatulence, nausea, and vomiting."

A recent study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food found that some properties of the Reishi Mushroom can fight obesity. The study was conducted by a Chinese research team at Hunan Agricultural University. It involved feeding mice high fat diets and then studying how the compounds of the mushrooms combated the weight gain over the course of a 12 week research project. The mushrooms exhibited helpful properties at both dosage levels that were tested.

Key Takeaways:

  • It has been found in a study that is published in the Journal of Medicinal Food that extracts of reishi mushroom has antioxidant properties that work against obesity.
  • The researchers were from China and they wanted to find out the effects of reishi mushroom polysaccharides on lipid metabolism, oxidative stress, and apoptosis in mice.
  • The treatment with reishi mushroom polysaccharide induced apoptosis, substantially decreased the liver and heart, and reduced the small intestine oxidative stress in the mice.

"In mice, treatment with reishi mushroom polysaccharides, in both doses, significantly reduced the body weight increases caused by the feeding with a high-fat diet."

Subject: How Does Excess Sugar Affect The Brain?





Excess sugar intake is unambiguously harmful to the body and the brain. In addition to widely understood risks like diabetes and obesity, elevated blood sugar can produce anxiety and interfere with emotions and mood. Eating too much sugar can also impact your brain’s reward-response system in ways that make you hungrier and more prone to overeating. High blood sugar can also constrict blood vessels, contributing to impaired cognitive functioning. Eating more fresh fruit as a substitute for added sugar and DRINKING more water can help reduce sugar levels in the brain.

Key Takeaways:

  • Too much sugar can be addictive to the brain and cause chemical imbalances.
  • Having too much sugar in the system can impair cognitive skills and processes
  • High glucose levels can damage the circulatory system both in the brain and thorough the body

"Excess sugar intake does damages our bodies in more ways than one."

Subject: Reverse cardiovascular disease with cherries





Cherries are a surprising and tasty option for lowering your risk of heart disease, thanks to their bountiful polyphenols, flavonoids and micronutrients. Like apples and grapes, cherries have lots of quercetin, which can reduce oxidative damage to your body. The deep red carotenoids and anthocyanins in cherries can fight inflammation and act as antioxidants. Cherries may also reduce your levels of C-Reactive Protein, which is associated with cardiovascular disease risk. Cherries and cherry juice are also good for regulating your blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you drink cherry juice, you can significantly lower your blood pressure.
  • Cherries can reduce your C-reactive protein, which in turn reduces inflammation and your risk of heart disease.
  • Be sure to consume organic cherries, because they do not contain residue from pesticides.

"In particular, the anthocyanins and carotenoids that give this stone fruit its deep red hue offer anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and they also help fight obesity and diabetes."

As holistic medicines and natural remedies continue to be looked for, especially as more data and evidence shows the immense benefits that many of these can have for an individual, one natural cure that has been looked into is that of milk thistle. Specifically so, milk thistle has been found to be significantly beneficial when it comes to helping with the problems of liver disease, and can be beneficial for those who want to have better control of blood sugar levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • Milk thistle is thorny and scrubby in appearance and is considered a weed by many yet it has a whole lot of benefits for individuals.
  • Milk thistle with the botanical name of Silybum marianum has been revered by traditional healers and herbalists for years and used to treat liver problems and blood sugar imbalances.
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) which is the liver disease that is more common in the country is known to affect 45 percent of the population in western countries.

"By the way, you should know that metabolic syndrome – associated with excess consumption of sugars and fats, obesity and a sedentary lifestyle – is a leading cause of NAFLD."

Subject: Powerful antioxidant helps us burn fat, lose weight and avoid premature aging





Milk thistle is known for being good for the liver, but researchers are finding more and more evidence that points to an antioxidant called glutathione being a key component as well. The powerful antioxidant called glutathione allows our bodies to kick up their natural fat burning abilities which helps trigger weight loss in an almost effortless manner. Studies have also shown that a deficiency in glutathione can cause weight gain through a reduction in mitochondrial fat burning.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is astonishing to note that two out of three Americans are overweight and obese and this makes them susceptible to diabetes and heart diseases.
  • Researchers are increasingly discovering that glutathione which is an antioxidant molecule that is produced by the body could be used in the fight against obesity and chronic disease.
  • This natural substance is not abundantly found in humans equally because the supply of glutathione can fall with aging and exposure environmental toxins make it more challenging to find.

"Glutathione is synthesized from the amino acids cysteine, glycine and glutamate. But, as we age, two of these “building blocks” – cysteine and glycine – decline, causing shortfalls in glutathione production."

Green tea not only tastes good, but it also has very beneficial health factors. Among these factors includes the fact that it contains catechins, which are polyphenols that are a good barrier to diabetes and stress. These catechins can also help with metabolic syndrome, which is a syndrome that causes people to have higher than normal levels of abdominal fat and a slowed down metabolism. This could potentially lead to lowered rates of obesity when consumed by the public.

Key Takeaways:

  • Japanese scientists have recently discovered that a component in green tea, catechins, has the ability to improve metabolic syndrome and reduce abdominal fat in the obese and overweight.
  • It is estimated that more than 34 percent of adults in the US suffer from metabolic syndrome and symptoms include abnormal lipid metabolism and abnormal glucose metabolism.
  • Diagnosing metabolic syndrome early on is very important otherwise it could lead to conditions such as the development of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.

"In this study, the researchers wanted to determine if catechins were beneficial for reducing abdominal fat and improving metabolic syndrome."

Subject: Why Fibre: The One Effective Macronutrient For Constipation AndWeight Loss





Fiber is a critical macronutrient that can help to alleviate constipation by increasing the size and weight of the stool. However, consuming too much fiber can cause discomfort, gas and bloating. The recommended daily intake of fiber for adults is 25 grams for women and 35 grams for men. Unfortunately, most people take in only about 15 grams of fiber per day. It's important to drink plenty of water so that the body can absorb fiber properly without any negative effects. While fiber is not a magic pill, it can aid in weight loss by eliminating toxins, boosting gut health, and balancing blood sugar.

Key Takeaways:

  • Since fiber is an essential macronutrient that the body requires, people who are suffering from constipation can get relief from having it in their diet.
  • Some of the benefits of taking fiber include the smooth movement of bowel through the increase in the weight and size of stool, and for losing weight.
  • Although fiber is good for the body, too much of fiber is unhealthy because it can lead to bloating, gas, and constipation.

"This means that a lack of fibre can invite a host of health problems ranging from plummeting sugar and lipid profiles, overeating which can in turn lead to obesity, constipation and gut dysbiosis which can pave way for even more serious illnesses."

Subject: Pistachios: Discover 7 reasons to eat this delicious nut





Tree nuts can be a great addition to a healthy diet, and there is no better example of this than the pistachio. Pistachios are rich in antioxidants that help fight against aging, cancer and inflammation. Eating pistachios can also improve your blood pressure and blood glucose levels. They're a good source or protein, fiber and healthy fats. In fact, snacking on pistachios can actually help you lose weight because they make you feel full. Note that one serving of pistachios is about one ounce of unshelled nuts, which is just under 50 kernels. How you eat them (alone or added to salads, rice, desserts, etc.) and buy them (pre-shelled vs. shelling them yourself) is up to you.

Key Takeaways:

  • Pistachios are named after the Greek name and these are one of the most nutrient dense nuts around the world which provide a source of protein, antioxidants, and fiber.
  • A diet that is rich in healthy fats like oleic acid and linoleic acid can reduce inflammation and make the risk of having heart disease lesser.
  • In 7000 BC, history has it that pistachio was famous among royalty because the Queen of Sheba named it an exclusive royal delicacy.

"They’re super gut healthy and can increase the number of bacteria which produce the anti-inflammatory fatty acid called butyrate (which protects against everything from obesity to autoimmune disorders)."

Subject: Why a little sun makes us feel so good





Who doesn't like basking in the rays of sunshine on a nice summer day? Since sunlight has the natural ability to raise serotonin levels, it naturally has the ability to regulate and improve your mood. Not getting enough exposure to sunlight on a regular basis can actually lead to the same harmful side effects that are associated with obesity and smoking. UV exposure is especially important for those who are impacted by seasonal affective disorder (SAD), even if it is received in an artificial setting.

Key Takeaways:

  • UVB radiation from sunlight is what causes the human body to synthesize critical vitamin D.
  • Vitamin D propels genes in the human body that aid in regulating the immune system and in releasing neurotransmitters in the brain.
  • One of the neurotransmitters directly impacted by vitamin D is serotonin, the lack of which is highly implicated in an array of mood disorders.

"A recent study, found that underexposure to sun carried significant risks, similar to smoking, obesity, and being sedentary."

Many people who are concerned in general terms about obesity still have gaps in their knowledge regarding several specific health consequences, according to the Cleveland Clinic Heart Health Survey. The survey indicated that, while most people understand that obesity is bad for cardiac health, they may not appreciate the role of triglycerides or different types of cholesterol. Likewise, relatively few respondents have made major dietary changes to try to lose weight, and my people appear not to understand that even relatively modest weight loss can have significant health benefits.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although many adults are concerned about having excess weight, they fail to make the connection between excess weight and the risk of developing chronic diseases.
  • According to a cardiologist expert, Luke Laffin, MD, it was surprising from a survey that only 22 percent of respondent had ever talked to their doctor about excess weight.
  • Individuals who have hypothyroidism even before the condition is diagnosed have been observed to have the tendency for excess weight gain.

"Carrying excess weight worsens glucose tolerance and also increases the risk of developing certain cancers."

Subject: How does poor gut health affect vitamin C and E in metabolicsyndrome? - Medical News Bulletin





Metabolic syndrome involves a combination of at least three out of five conditions — hypertension, abdominal obesity, low “good cholesterol,” and excessively high fasting blood glucose and serum triglyceride scores. Metabolic syndrome is a major public health concern, given that more than a third of American adults have it. Recent studies suggest that eating too much saturated fat can imbalance the bacteria in the gut. This results over time in oxidative stress and inflammation that can deplete the body’s stockpiles of vitamins C and E, and also make it harder to absorb more vitamin C from food to replace what has been used up. Vitamins C and E play an important role in protecting against oxidative stress.

Key Takeaways:

  • Metabolic syndrome can lead to heart disease, type 2 diabetes and other serious conditions.
  • The American Heart association defines metabolic syndrome as abdominal obesity, raised serum triglycerides, low HDL, high blood pressure or raised fasting blood glucose.
  • Vitamin C and E are vital to the body's immune system and work to prevent metabolic syndrome through regular consumption of fruits and vegetables.

"Around 35% of the American adult population has metabolic syndrome, with a higher prevalence in older age groups."

Subject: Study shows lutein can boost heart health





Many people consume lutein, either as a supplement in in vegetables containing lutein, because it can provide protection from diseases of the eye. A recent study has shown that lutein can protect the heart as well. Researchers found some correlation between higher levels of lutein in the bloodstream and a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, and metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a medical term for a group of conditions including abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, and high triglycerides. Lutein, a carotenoid, is found in dark, leafy green vegetables.

Key Takeaways:

  • Carrot and kale contain the carotenoid lutein that is useful for good eye health. But it has been shown that this compound is also good for the heart.
  • Lutein, a carotenoid, can both help protect the eyes and improve eye health, while reducing the risk of developing both cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
  • To carry out their study, the scientists first concentrated on current research on lutein. They gathered 4,377 studies that were narrowed down to 71 most relevant studies.

"Dr. Elizabeth Leermakers decided to look into “lutein’s positive effects against inflammation and oxidative stresses in the eyes,” and together with a team of researchers, she searched for links between the presence of lutein (or a lack of the carotenoid) and diseases caused by stressors like heart attack, metabolic syndrome, and stroke."

While turmeric is a commonly known spice, especially in South Asia, it is also known for its health benefits. Turmeric has been found to be a safe treatment for a variety of conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other chronic illnesses. Turmeric has been proven in many studies to be more effective in treating cancer than traditional cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation. Unlike chemo or radiation, turmeric has the ability to fight cancer for a long period of time. While this data still needs to be investigated, many are hopeful that in the future, turmeric will contribute to the fight against cancer and big pharmaceutical companies.

Key Takeaways:

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.

Over the past few years, a nutritional drink called Yerba mate has been rising in its popularity levels due to its known health benefits. A new health advantage that Yerba mate has been showing potential in, is its ability to help digestive issues over a long period of time. Yerba mate has been shown to help digestion through regulating insulin levels, and it even can possibly prevent obesity by helping our bodies burn fat at a higher rate.

Key Takeaways:

  • The body obtains the nutrients it needs through digestion which is the process of breaking down the food we eat through gut movement and released enzymes.
  • Sometimes, the things we eat do not get digested. This is not an evidence that your digestion is weak or faulty. They might be processed some other way.
  • When there are signs of bloating or constipation, then one has to take a careful look at his eating habits. They might need to be changed.

It turns out that there is a wealth of study data that shows that bitter melon is a potent health ally, particularly when it comes to individuals who are fighting a losing battle with weight and some of the chronic conditions that go with it.

There's scientific proof attesting to the fact that bitter melon aids the body in balancing its metabolism with lipid intake. It also benefits a syndrome marked by high levels if glucose in the blood and weight gain around the middle. It also tends to dampen the body's accumulation of adipose tissue. So, while it may not be a taste treat, it may be beneficial, nonetheless, to put some bitter melon on your plate.

Key Takeaways:

  • Recent studies by the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and Hefei University of Technology support the benefits of bitter melon seed oil for metabolic health and lipid processing.

Worse than sugar, this alternative boosts your risk of obesity and diabetes

Nearly 40 percent of American adults are obese, and although the food industry often presents artificial sweeteners as a solution, they are even worse for your health than the real thing. Artificial sweeteners may raise your risk of obesity and diabetes even more than real sugar, and may cause worse damage to the lining of the blood vessels. Over the long term, artificial sweeteners can change or wear down the cellular “machinery” your body uses to make energy, or even trick your body into breaking down muscle.

Key Takeaways:

  • Artificial sweeteners are not a solution to the out-of-control rates of obesity in America, and may make the problem even worse.
  • Artificial sweeteners can change your body’s processes for making energy and trick your body into burning muscle for energy.
  • Artificial sweeteners can stimulate the appetite, and previous research has strongly associated it with greater weight gain.

Microbiome, Herbal Medicine, and Probiotics Combine to Extend Lifespan

Scientists at McGill University were able to significantly increase the life expectancy of Drosophila fruit flies by using probiotics and the prebiotic Triphala mixture, an element of traditional Indian medicine. The experiment was based on the theory of the gut-brain axis, a two way superhighway of communication between the neurons and the digestive tract that helps the body respond to its environment and handle stress. Changes associated with the aging process, such as depletion of beneficial gut flora in the gastric microbiome, can interfere with the body’s ability to handle stress, inflammation and damage effectively. It is thought that the pro- and pre- biotics mixture helped mitigate these changes to the gastric microbiome.

Key Takeaways:

  • The theory of the Gut-Brain Axis (GBA) posits that the digestive tract and nervous system engage in constant and extensive communication.
  • The aging process tends to alter the gastric microbiome in harmful ways as populations of beneficial gut bacteria die off, potentially impacting all parts of the GBA.
  • As the body ages, it becomes more vulnerable to inflammation, oxidative stress and other forms of damage, many of which can be aggravated by the loss of gut bacteria and other changes in the GBA.

"The researchers, headed by Satya Prakash, Ph.D., a professor of biomedical engineering in McGill’s Faculty of Medicine, hope that the combination of probiotics and the prebiotic Triphala formulation could help to prevent or treat human disorders ranging from diabetes and obesity, to neurodegeneration, chronic inflammation, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, and perhaps even cancer."

Chronic low-grade inflammation is something that we can experience but many of us don't think about. It is a condition where when our immune system detects a threat in our bodies and substances are released. When they are released and the condition is not cured the substances remain elevated and we then can get chronic inflammation. This can lead to an array of conditions including: cancer, depression, and bone disease, and many more. There are many symptoms of chronic low-grade inflammation and also a holistic way to treat it with functional medicine. Holistically, we can treat by finding the cause and treating that rather than suppressing the symptoms of conventional medicine.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chronic inflammation is the key holder to heart disease, diabetes and obesity just to name a few.
  • Chronic low-grade inflammation also is the culprit to lack of exercise, fibromyalgia and anger problems

Subject: Inflammation can disrupt body's functions





Inflammation can disrupt body functions, as stated in an article by Review Journal. An interview conducted with Dr. U. Inge Ferguson, a physician who specializes in internal and obesity medicine, describes a multitude of issues ongoing inflammation can create for the body. For instance, excess weight gain and hormonal imbalances coupled with inflammation can promote other diseases to develop. The article describes what the inflammatory process is in the body, why we should be concerned about ongoing inflammation, the correlation between inflammation and obesity, and the steps to take to prevent or reduce ongoing inflammation in the body.

Key Takeaways:

  • whole-body inflammation promotes blood clotting and risks of heart attack and stroke
  • hormones can become abnormal, promoting diabetes, high-blood pressure, colon polyps, cancers, dementia and other disease. Inflammation is a strong risk factor in heart disease
  • If you have a waist bigger than your hips then you probably have excess abdominal fat, which can lead to inflammation.

"Inflammation happens early on as normal healing. Over time inflammation that continues is harmful, getting in the way of normal body functions."
