Subject: Stop cancer cell growth with the use of turmeric





While Western medicine is struggling to find a solution to the threat of cancer, traditional and natural options already exist. One of those options is curcumin, a substance found in the spice Turmeric. It has been long known that cancer is linked to inflammation, and Curcumin has a proven track record of anti-inflammatory effectiveness. It works by combatting free radicals in our bloodstream, and thus preventing the damage of oxidative stress. Turmeric can be cooked in dishes, drunk in juices, or taken in supplement form.

Key Takeaways:

  • The attraction to eliminate the threat to humans that is posed by cancer is high but western medicine cannot provide a solution that is safe and effective.
  • The growth of cancer have been proven that it can be stopped in natural ways and one way this can be done is using turmeric.
  • Because the medical and scientific world is obsessed with their risky surgical procedures, chemotherapy, and radiation, little is heard about the effectiveness of natural treatments for cancer.

Subject: The Conversation US: 13 ways to keep free radicals away, and why it's so important





Free radicals are molecules that are missing one or more electrons. They can damage your cells, which has been linked to health problems from wrinkles to cancer. Eating a diet rich in anti-oxidants fights the proliferation of free radicals, but the holidays, with their rich array of fatty, starchy, and sweet dishes, can make it more difficult to get those healthy anti-oxidants -- in the form of fresh fruits and veggies -- into your diet. But with a little diligence and pre-planning, you can have a healthy and delicious holiday season.

Key Takeaways:

  • raditional holiday meals are laden with salt, fat and sugar, which can spike blood glucose and insulin levels when eaten in excess all in one day. They also, alas, can increase the amount of free radicals, or molecules with unattached electrons, in the body, which can do serious cellular damage.
  • If a substance is “oxidized,” it has lost electrons to another substance. In contrast, we say a substance is “reduced” when it has gained electrons from another substance.
  • Our mitochondria, which operate like little factories in our cells, are responsible for burning fuel from food and producing energy in each of our cells via a process called oxidative phosphorylation.

"The oxidizing agents that have accepted electrons become free radicals if the unpaired electrons don’t bind to other molecules. These free radicals mess with our cellular metabolism, even interfering with our DNA."

Antioxidants- How To Fight With The Free Radicals

Subject: Antioxidants- How To Fight With The Free radicals

Free radicals are of good concern to any individual who wants to stay healthy. You have possibly heard of how hazardous these substances are and how essential are antioxidants that battle them. Understanding free radicals involves mastering just a little bit about their chemical background. Your body is made up of numerous connected parts. The organs and tissues that form these parts are all made from cells. In original terms, each cell is an independent unit that processes its waste and ingests nutrients, additionally to performing several other functions.


The Chemistry That Drives Our Cells

How do cells perform? The answer varies depending on the distinct cell. Some produce the power utilized to move muscles, and others transport nervous impulses, but all are powered by chemical reactions. These reactions, or interactions among the electrons that surround every atom in the universe, also happen inside our bodies. Without the several various molecules or groups of atoms, that chemical reactions produce, we couldn't survive.

Chemical Reactions: All About Charge

Chemical reactions typically result in bonds between specific molecules, developing compounds like vitamins, minerals along with other substances utilized to construct cells. Reactions take place due to the fact some molecules have positive and negative electrical charges because of the way their electrons are arranged. In most situations, chemical reactions keep occurring until these charges have already been balanced or canceled out completely.


Free radicals: Unbalanced Products

Occasionally, nonetheless, reactions produce free radicals. In chemical terms, radicals are unbalanced factors. These molecules retain charges for any number of causes, according to the reactions that formed them.

For a reason that charges are what attract atoms to each other, free radicals which have unbalanced charges are reactive. Free radicals are far more likely to bring about chemical changes than other balanced molecules, and these adjustments may be harmful or useful.

Even though some free radicals are necessary for biological functions or take place as intermediate stages of more complex reactions, others sit around with no use, waiting until they make contact with anything they can react with. As your body is a whole mass of atoms and chemical compounds, no cost radicals typically don't have to travel that far to locate something they can mess up.


Free radicals All Around

An extremely common radical reaction You're possibly familiar with is rusting. Rust is built up as a result of charged oxygen atoms from water reacting with metals, generating corrosive byproducts which are often brown. Although these reactions are fairly a common occurrence in metal in vehicles or appliances, they may also be responsible for the browning you see in sliced apples left exposed to the air.

Rust reactions occur since the oxygen in moisture has a charge. Though water is a complete molecule, its unbalanced, or polarized, form means that it tends to react, coming apart easily to leave charged oxygen behind. This oxygen joins with the metal molecules inside your body just as simply as it does those in a piece of iron. When your body could not become a rusted hulk of an old ship, it undergoes internal alterations.

People who suffer from multiple sclerosis has many things to deal with. This disease is a horrible crippling disease, and researchers are trying to figure out what role oxidative stress plays in the progression of this disease. Once researchers can figure this out they may have a better understanding of potential treatments.

Key Takeaways:

  • Antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, berries, and juices have typically been used to neutralize free radicals and prevent the damage they cause.
  • One molecule of antioxidants from these sources neutralizes one free radical.
  • However, there is a tipping point where the antioxidants are inadequate to take care of the damage, and additional help is needed.

Subject: A List of Foods Rich in Vitamin C





Because our bodies can't store vitamin c, it is crucial as human beings that we consume vitamin c on a regular basis. The vitamin does amazing things for bodies, such as healing wounds, boosting the immune system, and aiding skin health. Fruits and vegetables are a great source of it, but there are many others with high concentrations that will help you in getting the amount of vitamin c you need.

Key Takeaways:

  • Few nutrients are held to such high regard in the West as vitamin C.
  • Despite its biological importance, however, our bodies cannot store it like most other vitamins.
  • This means that we must consume vitamin C-rich foods on a daily basis in order to remain healthy.

"This essential antioxidant, which is commonly called the “anti-aging” vitamin, performs a large number of important roles in our bodies, from scavenging free radicals, aiding collagen production, healing wounds, and more"

Subject: How Glutathione Reduces Effects Of Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's Disease is an incurable chronic and movement disorder that results from the death of neuron cells of the substantia nigra area of the brain. The symptoms associated with this disease worsen as one ages.When the neurons die, they release a chemical called dopamine that is a neurotransmitter that relays messages to movement and coordination centers of the brain. As one ages, the dopamine level produced decreases making it hard for transmission of messages to this part of the brain responsible for movement and coordination. This makes the patient unable to control movement of body parts.

Symptoms of Parkinson's Disease:

  • The patient experience tremors in the hands,legs,face and jaws.
  • Stiffness of the trunk and the limbs as well
  • Slow movement in the patients
  • Lack of controlled and stable balance

How To Reduce Effects Of Parkinson's Disease:


PD currently has no cure. However, doctors do surgeries and other medical procedures on affected parts of the brain to reduce effects of this disease. Researchers worldwide agree that there could be a breakthrough in the treatment of this chronic disease with the administration of glutathione (GSH) to patients. The supplement works in the following ways:

Our bodies naturally produce glutathione which is an antioxidant. Its production however reduces progressively as one ages. Its main role is to fight free radicals which may build up to cause oxidative stress. Patients should thus take the glutathione supplement daily to help them fight this oxidative stress which causes PD.

Glutathione also supports mitochondria. This ensures consistent energy production in mitochondria. This energy is useful in the fight of PD. Glutathione makes the brain effectively use dopamine and detoxifies the body. This ensures that heavy metals which may attack the brain are regularly removed from the body. Numerous studies are however still underway to determine how this supplement can be used effectively. Glutathione should not be taken orally as it is broken down in the gut before it can be used in the brain cells.

Not all beauty treatments are the work of white-coated scientists toiling in ultra-clean laboratories. Thanaka powder, which comes from grinding the wood and bark of the thanaka tree, has long been used on the face to brighten the complexion and shield the skin against free radicals, polluted air and harmful UV rays. Argan oil was traded as a coveted beauty agent in and around the Mediterranean area in 12 BC. The Berber women of southern Morocco were known for their exotic beauty, and their secret was applying this golden oil regularly to their faces, nails, hair and body.

Key Takeaways:

  • Burmese women have been doing the SPF thing for years -- more than 2,000 to be exact.
  • Thanaka powder, which comes from grinding the wood and bark of the thanaka tree, has long been used on the face to brighten the complexion and shield the skin against free radicals, polluted air and harmful UV rays.
  • Thanaka powder is still used today -- women cover cheeks, foreheads and chins with the paste and wear it throughout the day.

Curcumin Helps Alleviate Depression
TopPreviousNext

Subject: Curcumin Helps Alleviate Depression

Curcumin is a phenolic acid that can be sourced from the cooking spice turmeric. It acts as a powerful antioxidant in humans and protects the body's cells from dangerous free radicals (harmful by-products that are released into the cells during oxygen related reactions). Provisional studies suggest that it may also have many more health benefits. There is also some evidence that curcumin or turmeric may help alleviate the symptoms of certain skin diseases, viral infections, diabetes, colitis, stomach ulcers, and high cholesterol. Once again, the ancient herbal remedy is being celebrated as a modern wonder drug. But perhaps the most promising results have been seen in the use of curcumin to treat depression.

Curcumin2

Curcumin vs. Prozac

If there's one thing Big Pharma fears more than anything else it's competition from the outside. Because herbal medicines have far fewer and less serious side effects than prescription pills, they would be the logical choice - if only they worked as well. Well, there is now irrefutable, ironclad scientific evidence that an herbal remedy is every bit as effective at treating depression as one of the most popular prescription antidepressants.

When researchers with the Department of Pharmacology of Government Medical College in Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India conducted a controlled clinical study comparing the effects of curcumin and Prozac, they didn't expect to make national, even global news. Although the popular herbal remedy is widely used in India, curcumin had never been subjected to rigorous scientific testing for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). The most serious and chronic form of the disease, major or clinical depression affects about 3 percent of population at any given time. The idea that a chemical compound from a popular native spice could compete with Prozac seemed far- fetched to those conducting the study. But after 60 patients diagnosed with MDD were randomly administered curcumin, fluoxetine (Prozac), and a combination of the two, the results spoke for themselves.

With the help of the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, 17-item version (HAM-D17), researchers determined that curcumin was just as effective as Prozac at treating serious depression. Because the study utilized the latest research tools and followed strict testing guidelines, it became the first published report that indicated the efficacy of turmeric or curcumin in the treatment of depression. What the report did not take into account, however, were the serious side effects those who take Prozac endure; the most serious of which include anxiety, seizures, racing heartbeat, trouble sleeping, and suicidal ideation.

How Curcumin Treats Depression

Shortly after the results of the aforementioned study made news, researchers started looking for answers. It was not enough for Western scientists to know that curcumin is effective in the treatment depression, they also had to know how. As you might imagine, the how has proved more challenging than the if. This is not at all surprising, since curcumin has diverse biological properties that are difficult to study separately. So, while the mechanism of action is poorly understood, the effects of curcumin intake are well documented, particularly with regard to neurotransmitters.

As their name implies, neurotransmitters send messages to the billions of neurons in the human brain. Some of these neurotransmitters are responsible for regulating brain functions such as mood, memory, appetite, and sleep. Known as "feel-good" neurotransmitters because they help maintain mood balance, dopamine and serotonin play a role in depression. How do we know? For starters, studies have confirmed that people who suffer from clinical depression have consistently low levels of both neurotransmitters.

Once again, we aren't sure how curcumin extract works its magic, but testing has shown that those who take it have higher serotonin and dopamine levels. That fact alone might account for the improved mood those that take the dietary supplement have consistently reported. Although researchers will undoubtedly get to the bottom of this ancient mystery, it enough for most patients to know that curcumin is a safe and effective treatment option.

Chocolate cocoa boosts the functioning of the brain

Subject: Chocolate cocoa boosts the functioning of the brain

Eating chocolates has always been associated to certain misconceptions such as weight gain and a rise in cholesterol levels. A recent published scientific study has proven that chocolate has various health benefits. Does eating chocolate make us smarter? Yes! This article will show the relationship of chocolate and cognitive activities in our body.

How does chocolate make you smarter?

Chocolate is a product of cocoa. Flavonoid a phytonutrient present in the cocoa induces the production of protein in neurons known as Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). BDNF acts on some neurons of the central nervous system. It helps support existing neurons and encourages growth neurons. In the brain, BDNF functions in the active cortex, basal forebrain, and hippocampus. These areas are vital to higher thinking, learning, and memory. BDNF boosts the activity in these areas hence aiding in acquiring and consolidation of memory and its storage.

Flavonoids in the chocolate also help in blood flow. More blood flow to the brain, results to improved brain functions.

Chocolates contain antioxidants. These are compounds which slow down the damaging effects of free radicals in the body. Free radicals are byproducts of oxygen use in the body. They cannot be avoided and are responsible for damaging body cells. In the brain, they cause memory loss. Antioxidants in the chocolate step in to reverse the harmful effect of these radicals and hence improve cognitive skills.

Flavonoids and antioxidants are the main elements in chocolates that improve the brain function. Therefore, people who eat chocolates are smarter.

All the cells in our body have a life span, they live for a short time and then diet. When the DNA in these cells get damaged, the cells sometimes do not die, but instead they start replicating their damaged DNA over and over causing cancer and tumors. Every time a cell replicates it makes a copy of itself, we do not want damaged cells replicating them selves.

Cells get damaged from free radicals. Just breathing causes free radicals. Eating large amounts of food causes free radicals. The only thing that can protect the body from free radicals is antioxidants. This is why it is important to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. fruits and vegetables are packed with antioxidants.

Many herbs are also consider antioxidants, one in particular has been getting a lot of publicity lately. Curcumin from turmeric is that herb. Research is discovering that the curcumin has a lot of health benefits. The ORAC value of curcumin makes it the strongest antioxidant gram for gram compared to any other natural substance out there.

If you want to protect your body from free radical damage, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, also cut back on the size of your meals. Smaller meals means less free radical production, and by all means take curcumin daily to help fight free radical damage and help your cells replicate the right way.

Subject: Curcumin in the form of Turmeric has been used for over 6000 years

Curcumin is the active component of turmeric. It works as an anti-inflammatory to prevent cancerous cells from growing.

  1. It inhibits or blocks the COX-2 and NF-Kappa B inflammatory pathways which stops chronic inflammation.
  2. It fights free radicals through its antioxidant properties, in doing this it reduces the arachidonic acid, called the mother of inflammation. 
  3. It regulates the body's production of cytokines, proteins that serve as molecular messengers between cells.  Reducing cytokines will reduce inflammation.
  4. It stops or reduces the production of an enzyme called protein kinases, slowing or stopping the production of this protein will reduce inflammation.

There is plenty of research showing curcumin's ability to stop chronic inflammation that have been linked to the aging process. 

Remember, chronic inflammation = high risk of cancer rate.

 If you are not currently taking curcumin, consider adding it to your daily vitamin regiment.

As we age, hormone levels tend to decline,  more so in women than men.  The decline in testosterone in men is call andropause.  This decline in testosterone is generally slower and can go un-noticed by most men.  With the decline in testosterone, comes less energy and loss of sex drive.  

Testes in men produce testosterone and can come under attach by free radicals, called oxidative stress.  Excessive free radical activity threatens the testes' ability to make testosterone.  It is vital to get plenty of fruits and veggies loaded with polyphenols which fight free radical damage.  

Apples and grapes have been praised in traditional lore as wellsprings of health.  Modern research has found that these fruits contain polyphenols which are strong antioxidants.  Getting plenty of fruits can help lower blood pressure, reduce arterial plaque and fight free radical damage.  

Like your mom always said, eat your fruits and veggies,  she knew best.  Sometimes it is hard to get adequate amounts of fruits and veggies in both adults and children.  I suggest that everybody take a fruit and veggie supplement daily to offset poor diets.
