Subject: Myrrh oil is worth more than gold when it comes to the healthbenefits it provides





Essential oils are used for aromatherapy but that is just one of their myriad uses. They have been used by Chinese medicine and ayurvedic medicine for centuries due to their numerous health benefits. Now, science has backed many of the claims on health benefits. One of these oils is myrrh. Myrrh is produced from a steam distillation process by extracting the reddish brown sap from the Commiphora myrrha tree. The oil is amber in color and has an earthy aroma. It has a lot of healthy benefits. One of them is that it is used to eliminate harmful bacteria. Ancient Egyptians used this oil to embalm their dead and mummies because it slows down the process of decay. This is due to the antibacterial and antimicrobial properties of myrrh oil. Another advantage of this oil is that it can eliminate some parasites. Myrrh oil has been reported to cure infections such as trichomoniasis and giardiasis. Myrrh oil can also support oral health. It has been used by researchers to treat mouth sores with complete relief for the patients. Other benefits of this wonderful oil are highlighted in the blog.

Key Takeaways:

  • Myrrh is gotten from the plant, Commiphora myrrha, and is its reddish brown dried sap that was extracted using a steam distillation process.
  • One of the many benefits of myrrh which is amber color to the eyes is that it eliminates harmful bacteria from the body.
  • Myrrh was used by traditional Egyptians for the dead to embalm bodies which did not only make them not to smell but to delay decay.

"In fact, myrrh essential oil, which is often used in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine, has many science-backed health benefits."

Can sulforaphane help children with autism?

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: Ashwagandha could be your next workout supplement





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."

The health benefits of green tea have long been praised by scientists and health practitioners, and new research actually adds to the current body of knowledge regarding green tea. Recently, it has been found that green tea can aid in the symptoms of acute cystitis. Acute cystitis is categorized as inflammation in the bladder that is prompted by bacterial infection. Green tea has antimicrobial effects, which can help reduce symptoms of acute cystitis with the exception of blood in the urine. Other health benefits of green tea include weight loss, the prevention of cancer, lowering of stroke risk, and improved memory function.

Key Takeaways:

  • Acute cystitis, which affects many women, is a fast onset inflammation of the bladder, usually the result of a bacterial infection.
  • Recently, the publication, Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice printed data linking cystitis with the use of green tea.
  • Green tea's efficacy against cystitis makes sense, because green tea has catechins that have antimicrobial effect against the E-coli bacteria.

"For this study, researchers from Kerman University of Medical Sciences in Iran carried out a blinded randomized trial to assess the efficacy of green tea as adjunctive therapy to standard antimicrobial treatment in women with acute uncomplicated cystitis."

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

Key Takeaways:

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

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

Subject: science confirms turmeric as effective as 14 drugs





If you haven’t yet heard, turmeric is the latest super herb that is as effective as at least 14 drugs and is safe to consume in food, as a tea, or in supplement form. A 2008 study in Drugs found that turmeric worked just as well as Lipitor in decreasing blood levels of cholesterol. Another study in Phytotherapy Research found turmeric to be as effective as steroids in the treatment of chronic inflammatory eye disease. Studies conducted over the past twenty years also show turmeric to be a promising alternative to aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and tamoxifen for its anti-inflammatory and tumor suppressing properties.

Key Takeaways:

  • Curcuminoids from turmeric have been found to compare on equal terms with the pharmaceutical drug, Lipitor, which is used to treat endothelial dysfunction.
  • In the management of chronic anterior uveitis which is an inflammatory eye disease, curcumin from turmeric was found to be as effective as steroids.
  • Curcumin in turmin has also been found to be comparable in function to other steroids such as dexamethasone in protecting lung transplantation-associated injury.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many persons in the developed world need not worry about their intake of vitamin A because they already get enough from their diet.
  • The World Health Organization doesn’t recommend supplementation for anyone living in countries like America because people already eat the things that contain it like eggs and meat.
  • Vitamin A deficiency results in eyesight issues and this is very well demonstrated in developing countries where supplementation is being proposed.

"But even if you don't have to worry about getting enough vitamin A in your diet, it's still important to know what it does in the body — here's what we know about it."

For people who are suffering from diabetes, it is a really hard thing. There are a lot of people out there that are naive to what it actually means to be diabetic. These people do not have it easy at all and over time, it only gets harder. The process becomes more routine but it does not get any less taxing on the body. Also, cinnamon is something that is recommended by nutritionists for people who are diabetic.

Key Takeaways:

  • One of the greatest concerns about diabetes is that the medications presently used have adverse side effects and the costs in terms of money and lost productivity is high.
  • With the increasing emphasis on plants for scientific research, many useful benefits of plants for medicinal purposes are being understood better than before.
  • Some studies have recognized the relationship between curing diabetes in humans and rats with the cinnamon plant but none has understood its antioxidant properties.

Subject: Should You Try CBD for Your Pet?





CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid compound, is now legal for use in humans in 47 states, but neither science nor the law has dealt extensively with CBD use for veterinary purposes. Only California explicitly allows vets to talk to clients about CBD as a veterinary medicine, and hard research on its effects in animals remains sparse. Despite this, pet owners across the country have been experimenting with the use of CBD to address problems like anxiety, pain, arthritis and other conditions in their four-legged friends.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although still banned by the federal government, CBD is not psychoactive, and can be legally used in 47 states.
  • Most state-level CBD laws do not cover veterinary use, and only in California are vets explicitly allowed to discuss it.
  • While anecdotal reports suggest CBD may have a variety of applications in treating pain and anxiety in pets, research is very scarce.

"But recently, Powers says he has found a way to control his dog’s noise anxiety: cannabidiol—aka CBD, a compound that can be extracted from cannabis, which includes marijuana and hemp."

Scientists are constantly looking at new ways in which they can measure people's health. It is not easy to be someone who never has a health issue in their life. However, making sure that your gut and agave is healthy should be a priority in many people's minds. Doctors are finding new things that are helpful for treating people with issues related to these two things. Freeze dried stems are actually an effective prebiotic for these things.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers interested in the agave plant harvested the specimens they used around the Laguna Seca meszcal factory, in San Luis, Potosi.
  • The researchers freeze-dried a dried stem of the plant before extracting the juice from it and analyzing the components.
  • Although it's normally used as a base for tequila, agave is actually a nutritious plant, full of fiber and mineral content.

"The agave plant (Agave salmiana) has potential prebiotic benefits, according to a study published in the journal LWT – Food Science and Technology. The Mexican plant is found to contain fructooligosaccharides, a prebiotic sugar that can be food for the beneficial bacteria in our gut called probiotics, which in turn provide us with a plethora of health benefits."

Subject: How A Powerful Type of Salt and An Ancient Spice Can End ChronicPain For Good





Pain is of course a fact of life, as is the reasonable pursuit to end, or at least mitigate it. But, it's that ending of pain that can prove problematic. Last year Consumer Reports revealed that as many as 4 million plus U.S. citizens bought pharmaceutical interventions of some type in an attempt to deal with a pain. Unfortunately, most pharmaceutical interventions are not without side effects, some of them very serious. Moreover, although these types of interventions can help sufferers cope with symptoms, they can also mask other important symptoms. In general, pharmaceutical pain relievers block receptors that would allow the brain to acknowledge pain. They can also cause a mild euphoria. The most potent type of pharmaceutical pain killers, opioids are also highly addictive. Millions of people abuse prescription drugs and hundreds of thousands die due to overdose every year. There are other options. Alternative forms of holistic treatment have been around for thousands of years, long before many of today's modern interventions. Today, science is discovering that many of them have a right to be considered potent medicine in their own right. Two holistic alternatives to pharmaceutical pain relievers are turmeric and cayenne. Curmerin, the inflammation-fighting component of turmeric, has been proven to fight inflammation-caused pain as well as Ibuprofen. In the same way, the capsaicinoids, which are inherent in cayenne, also work to alleviate inflammation, thereby alleviating pain. Another holistic remedy, Epsom salts, also alleviates pain when users soak in it.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although drugs can alleviate symptoms, they also have a tendency to mask other vital symptoms.
  • During 2017, it's estimated by Consumer Reports that drug-seeking U.S. citizens filled a whopping 4.5 million prescriptions.
  • Curcumin, a component of the spice turmeric, inhibits pain due to inflammation in a way that makes it on par with the relief users would normally gain from Ibuprofen.

"Big Pharma seems to be working very hard at creating customers, rather than cures. When you take a drug, it often leads to more problems, and ultimately, more drugs."

Protease: The Enzyme that Makes Protein & Amino Acids Tick

Protease is an enzyme. People do not realize the importance that some of these enzymes have. If you ask some random person what an enzyme is, the chances are that they probably will not know. That is how uneducated many individuals are when it comes to science and what it consists of. Protein and amino acids actually rely on enzymes to tick and it is a matter of simply understanding how it works. Some people grasp it better than others.

Key Takeaways:

  • Because of the biological importance of proteolytic enzymes, they have been a focus of the pharmaceutical industry.
  • When proteins are digested, the proteolytic enzymes in the stomach break them down repeatedly to amino acids that are then absorbed by the body.
  • If the body cannot produce proteolytic enzymes, it cannot break down proteins and this leads to serious health issues.

"Proteases have been called biology’s version of Swiss army knives, able to cut long sequences of proteins into fragments. A protease is an enzyme that breaks the long, chainlike molecules of proteins so they can be digested."

Foods That Cause Inflammation: 5 Foods to Avoid

Inflammation serves as a guardian of your body warning you to be careful with whatever part is acting up. If inflammation is left untreated, it can cause disease. Eliminating certain foods from your diet can help keep you healthy. Processed meat, like beef jerky or bacon, can cause issues. Foods with large doses of added sugar should also be avoided. Refined carbs and food that contains vegetable and seed oil are also a no-no, as are anything with artificial trans fats.

Key Takeaways:

  • Meat itself contains healthy nutrients, but processed meats like bacon and jerky should be avoided.
  • Too much added sugar can lead to heart disease and mental disorders in addition to inflammation.
  • Choose whole-grain rices, breads, and pastas instead of processed products that cause inflammation,

Why does losing weight get harder with age?

Many find it harder to drop the extra pounds later in life, and science is now backing up this theory with medical evidence that point to it being true. Each year that we grow older, our metabolism drops by approximately 1%. This means that the amount of calories we burn drops by this same amount. We also tend to store more white fat as opposed to brown fat. White fat is known to store more fat cells, while brown fat helps promote an increase in heart rate and other beneficial functions.

Key Takeaways:

  • People often find that they gain weight as they age even if they are eating and exercising the same amount as before.
  • For starters, a person's metabolic rate drops as their years advance over time.
  • In addition, people's bodies are able to store more white fat for additional calories.

"Well, there are a couple things working against you. One, you’re most likely not burning as many calories as you did when you were in your 20s."

Inflammation is a natural response that the body exhibits in order to heal the body from pathogens that are present within our system. Dandelion extract contains an important acid that has the ability to activate an important vascular event that triggered the decrease of the surrounding inflammation. The research was performed on animals experiencing high levels of inflammation, and the consumption of dandelion extract showed to directly induce the stimulation of this important vascular activity.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers are looking for alternative anti-inflammatory medicines because current ones can cause gastrointestinal disorder, fluid imbalances and immunodeficiency.
  • Taraxasterol has been identified as the compound in dandelion that contributes to its anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Dandelion is used extensively in folk medicine to treat ailments related to liver, gallbladder, kidneys and joints.

CV Sciences, Inc. Announces Landmark Publication on the Toxicology and Safety Assessment of ...

The scientific study of the analysis of CBD oil got a major push recently. It's been almost 40 years since the last thorough toxicological safety assessment was run on a CBD oil. However, recently CV sciences had AIBMR Life Sciences Inc. perform a complete array of toxicological studies on Plus CBD oil, the company's consumer-lauded hemp cannabidiol oil. The study attested to the safety of oral consumption of the product.

The study conclusions, which have been shared in a peer-reviewed journal, attest to the fact that the oil was discovered to be non-clastogenic, non-mutagenic and non-genotoxic. A spokesperson for CV Sciences noted that the company was "thrilled" and would encourage all CBD companies to allow such studies to be conducted for their own base materials.

Key Takeaways:

  • CV Sciences Inc hired AIBMR Lifesciences Inc. to perform a full toxicological screening of CV's consumer-lauded CBD oil, specifically an extract from the base raw materials comprising it.
  • A peer-reviewed journal has published the findings, which indicate that the extract tested is non-mutagenic, non-clastogenic and non-genotoxic.
  • A spokesperson for CV Sciences indicated that the company was "thrilled" and also urged other CBD companies to have their base materials tested too.

"The toxicological assessment is the first known published data of its kind since the 1980 Rosenkrantz et al.’s publication with respect to toxicology data on CBD, Cannabichromene and hashish oil."

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Fighting Inflammation Via Cannabinoids

Animal tissue trials suggest that humans can convert Omega 3 Fatty Acids into endocannabinoid compounds that fight inflammation without causing a high. These chemicals are distant relatives of the euphoria-inducing THC in marijuana. Enzymes in your body can process omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids into compounds that bind to the cannabinoid system to boost immunity and fight inflammation. This results in the same medical effects as marijuana without the high. More research is needed, as the cannabinoid system may end up being one of the major endocrine systems in the body.

Key Takeaways:

  • Foods such as eggs, meat, nuts, and fish contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that the body can convert into endocannabinoids.
  • The body has two cannabinoid receptors, one in the nervous system and another in the immune system.
  • In 1992, scientists discovered that the body naturally produces endocannabinoids and other endocannabinoids have been identified since that time.

Bitter melon may be an unusual thing to incorporate into your diet. But, you may want to look into some recipes. 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.
  • Chromatographic analysis of butter melon seed oil suggests that it contains compounds, including conjugated linolenic acid, that support inflammation control and protect against neurodegenerative dise
  • The study found that mice on a high fat diet given bitter melon seed oil had a decrease in weight relative to other mice, and were better at burning fat, with higher doses having higher effects.

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.

"If you’re still holding out hope that science will eventually prove artificial sweeteners to be beneficial, or at the very least harmless, you’re likely to be disappointed."

Anxiety Relief Without The High? New Studies On CBD, A Cannabis Extract

Marijuana is historically known for its mind-altering impact on those who consume it, but this is primarily due to the THC that is present within the strand at use. CBD is a component that is also in all marijuana strands, but it does not promote the same psychological effects that THC does. CBD oil can be extracted out on its own so that patients can consume it for medical benefits without any concern for psychological symptoms. CBD has shown to be especially effective in treating inflammatory diseases, as well as anxiety symptoms.

Key Takeaways:

  • Since CBD does not have THC in it, it does not promote the same psychoactive effects as typical marijuana does.
  • You can use CBD oil by taking it by a dropper, or by taking it as a capsule form for easier consumption.
  • The studies were performed on animals and were very short-lived, so there still needs to be more research studies surrounding anxiety and CBD use.

"By one estimate, the CBD industry has doubled in size over the last two years, and is now worth $200 million. But with this popularity the hype may have gotten ahead of the science."

This dual nature of the plant arises from the fact that the hibiscus is both highly nutritious and also the source of a safe coloring agent that can be used even in foods.

The periodical, 'Food Science and Human WellnessWellness', explored the viability of hibiscus-generated food coloring for cupcakes and found the resulting product to be both cost-effective and 'clean, ' with the added benefit of adding necessary flavonoids into the human diet. These anthocyanins, aside from the nourishment they provide, appear to be linked with the easing of numerous health complaints, including, hypertension, inflammatory conditions, coughing and excess weight.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Helwan University of Egypt recently funded a research study to evaluate the hibiscus calyces extract and it's perceived, biochemical and sensory effect on the properties of functional cupcakes.
  • Studies have affirmed that drinkers of Hibiscus tea had decreased blood pressure after a consistent month long use of the tea.
  • Because it has both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial capabikities, hibiscus is an ingredient promoted for the ammelioration of cough and cold symptoms.

"Extracts from hibiscus calyces could be used as a natural food coloring, which can provide health benefits at the same time, according to a study published in the journal Food Science and Human Wellness."

Subject: Artificial sweeteners may increase risk of diabetes in two weeks, study claims





A new study out of Australia has shown that in as little as two weeks, using no calorie sugar substitutes can actually increase your risk for type 2 diabetes. These sweeteners can actually increase your glucose tolerance, causing weight gain and high blood sugar levels in your system. This is a concern that affects both diabetics who use them to avoid ingesting sugar as well as those without diabetes who can become sick using them.

Key Takeaways:

  • Low-calorie sweeteners are safe and do not contribute to an eventual diagnosis of diabetes.
  • Low-calorie sweeteners also do not harm people that have already been diagnosed with diabetes. There are no ill effects.
  • Artificial sweeteners are contributing to weight gain and other negative body issues.

"Artificial sweeteners could potentially increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes (T2DM) in two weeks, says research that fuels ongoing debate over the sugar substitutes’ long-term health effects."

CBD is the non psychoactive part of marijuana that does not get you high. The purpose of CBD is to reduce pain and has been found to be very useful for epilepsy. The DEA wants to put CBD in the same classification as heroin. There is no danger of CBD becoming addictive but the DEA is trying to classify it as that. People are turning to dangerous narcotics for pain when they could be turning to CBD.

Key Takeaways:

  • The World Health Organization found that cannabidiol (CBD) doe not make a person high.
  • WHO suggested that CBD can counteract the properties of THC and it is not addictive.
  • WHO suggested that CBD does not have potential for someone to abuse the chemical.

"The World Health Organization's new report on cannabidiol (CBD) found that the compound (which does not produce any kind of high -- and may actually counteract the psychoactive properties of THC) is not addictive, has no potential for abuse, and shows promise in a number of medical trials."

Subject: CBD for Fibromyalgia and Opioid Withdrawal





CBD is an alternative to the THC seen in marijuana plants, coming with all of the pain relief but with none of the psychoactive properties. It has been shown that this can help with opioid withdrawal. The author is a 70+ woman who used it daily as a tincture in olive oil to combat her dependence on opioids. It allowed her to kick that habit and develop healthier habits through the use of CBD and her pain management techniques.

Key Takeaways:

  • CBD is being debated for its medical uses in some settings too. It can be used to aid in the treatment of fibromyalgia over time.
  • Even opioid withdrawal could be minimized if the patient opts to use CBD. That is drawing attention towards the utility of CBD for medical reasons.
  • Doctors and other personnel are waiting to evaluate the true effects of CBD. Some research is hinting at its uses and may help get it approved.

"I hope the efficacy of CBD in aiding opiate withdrawal becomes more commonly known. It’s truly incredible."

Subject: Zinc-binding is vital for regulating pH levels in the brain





According to a study from the University of Oslo, Zinc-binding plays a critical role in the regulation and sensing of pH in the brains of humans. This is one of the first studies to link the binding of zinc with bicarbonate transporters. Researchers from the University’s Centre for Molecular Medicine published these findings in Scientific Reports. These results are important because optimal ph levels are very important for our overall health. In fact, low ph levels in infants sometimes leads to brain damage. Lead researcher Preben Morth emphasized that research into zinc’s role in the regulation of ph is important for understanding overall brain health and function.

Key Takeaways:

  • A low ph-level at birth is linked to low oxygen which can lead to brain damage
  • zinc binding is an important element of having a balanced ph level
  • before CO2 is expelled as waste from our body it is part of the process of regulating our ph

"An example of how important pH levels are to our health is demonstrated by the fact that pH levels in blood from the umbilical cord are always tested in newborn babies."

Subject: Treating ADHD naturally: The science says Omega-3s make a difference





Science is figuring out how ADHD can be treated without a strong medication. The key is Omega-3s. This is good news since many parents don't want to put their children on these medications because they an alter a child's modd. They are very powerful. Omega-3s can be found in fish and other foods, though. They are natural and safe. There are also supplements which contain them. It will not be hard to get them into your child's diet.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers at Kings College London found n-3 PUFAs are an option for treating ADHD.
  • Neurotransmitters need n-3 PUFAs to function correctly, but children and teens with ADHD have lower levels of Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • The body does not create Omega-3 fatty acids, so they are obtained through food.

"From the seven clinical tests, they discovered that omega-3 fatty acids improved the clinical symptoms of ADHD, such as inattention and hyperactivity, according to reports made by the parents of the observed children."

Subject: A need for bananas? Dietary potassium regulates calcification of arteries





Having potassium in your diet regulates calcification of your arteries. Bananas have a lot of potassium, so people should eat plenty of those. Dietary potassium can help to prevent heart issues. Both bananas and avocados can protect against heart disease. They are both foods that are very high in potassium. This is something that the nation needs to pay attention to because a lot of deaths in this country are from heart disease. Potassium matters a lot.

Key Takeaways:

  • Potassium-rich foods, like bananas and avocados, could protect against the hardening of arteries that is linked to heart disease.
  • This finding comes from a study by University of Alabama researchers using mice as test cases.
  • The study suggest that dietary potassium supplements could help prevent heart disease in humans, a major health problem.

"Bananas and avocados -- foods that are rich in potassium -- may help protect against pathogenic vascular calcification"

The University of Chicago has recently announced findings that bee pollen has antimicrobial properties, something that practitioners of natural medicine have known for years. It fights bacteria in a different way than conventional antibiotics and with the rising prevalence of antibiotic resistant microbes, this is potentially a game changer. The potential is great but also precarious as pesticide use has drastically decreased the bee population in the last few years. Hopefully science realizes just how important natural remedies are before it is too late.

Key Takeaways:

  • New research has discovered potential from a compound derived from honeybees. But that ignores the fact that natural medicine has used bee pollen for some time.
  • Years have passed since natural medicine has used bee pollen initially. That has seen the development of new approaches to medicine on the whole.
  • The new antibiotic drug has been in use for some time now too. That has opened up new potential for a market for the antibiotic drug.

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have labeled antibiotic resistance as one of the most pressing public health issues in the world as illnesses that used to be easy to treat become deadly."

As nutrition knowledge is changing and we have found that many 'facts' from 25 years ago just do not hold true. Fat used to be an enemy, but we now know that it is a necessity from the right sources. Because we thought fructose was better for diabetics, it soon was added to everything. It is still fine in moderation in fruit, but not added to food. All calories are the same and calories in, calories out are also 'facts' that we now know are just not true.

Key Takeaways:

  • Certain types of fatty foods are good for cardiovascular health.
  • To lose weight, reduce your calorie intake instead of food restrictions.

Subject: Cross Your Fingers—Weed Might Lower Blood Pressure





The effects of CBD (Cannabidiol) are proving to be effective in lowering blood pressure in early testing. CBD is one of the main active chemicals in marijuana, but the effect in this case is not to get high, but to get calm. A company called PotBotics is using the measurement of EEGs to potentially come to a finding that it truly does reduce blood pressure. The magazine Popular Science published some recent results that in initial dosing, blood pressure DID come down.

Key Takeaways:

  • The FDA hates that individuals are self medicating with CBD sprays which are legal.
  • They are many different laws in regards to weed which are inconsistent.
  • According to O'Sullivan research CBD helps blood vessels relax and dilate.

"While the familiar high most people use weed for comes from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), most researchers agree that CBD provides weed’s mellowing effect. It doesn’t intoxicate users, but it does calm them down."
