Subject: New findings show mushrooms protect brain health





The culinary world loves mushrooms because they have rich flavors but yet they are packed with high amount of nutrition and possess antioxidant and anti-inflammation properties. But new findings show that mushrooms can even provide much more. They have been shown to help in brain health. The research highlighted in this blog shows that when people eat mushrooms they have reduced risk of a mild cognitive impairment that precedes Alzheimer’s disease. The study was conducted in the National University of Singapore and used 600 human subjects who were given various types of mushrooms such as dried mushrooms, white button mushrooms, and golden mushrooms. The researchers found at the end of the study that participants who had consumed mushrooms had reduced cognitive decline especially if they take two or more servings of mushrooms each week as seniors. Other benefits of mushrooms beyond brain health are that it helps prevent cancer, improves the immune function, reduces weight, and is a healthy source of vitamin D.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although mushrooms are loved by those who cook for their rich flavor, it goes beyond that because it is also a nutritional powerhouse.
  • New research shows that mushrooms can boost brain health because it has been understood that eating mushrooms reduces risk of mild cognitive impairment.
  • The study was conducted at the National University of Singapore using about 600 people who were given different types of mushrooms to consume.

"Beyond the new findings that show mushrooms may boost brain health and lower the risk for cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease, mushrooms offer other significant health benefits, too."

The many health benefits of the ashwagandha root is well known to ayurvedic medicine. It is only recently that conventional medicine is becoming aware of this due to the increase in the number of published articles on the effectiveness of ashwagandha root. It is known that the ashwagandha root is a good adaptogen and it is prolific for combating stress, for giving support to the adrenal system, and also for help in balancing the hormones in the body. It can also serve as an exceptional herb for aiding sleep. This effect on the body is due to the richness of alkaloids including sioinidosides that can be found in ashwagandha root which makes it serve as a mild sedative for natural anxiety relief. A recent study in which 64 human subjects were used and half were given a placebo while the other half ashwagandha root extracts gave impressive results in showing that ashwagandha root extracts is effective for boosting resistance to stressors and can help adults suffering from chronic stress. Furthermore, there is no side effect with taking ashwagandha roots even if one is not feeling stress.

Key Takeaways:

  • As research continues to support the successful use of ashwagandha for healing especially in ayurvedic medicine, it is expected that conventional doctors will begin to embrace it.
  • In a clinical trial that involved 64 human subjects, half were given a placebo while the other half were given ashwagandha for 60 days with impressive results.
  • Ashwagandha has been confirmed to be one of the natural healing remedies for stress relief, and it also supports the adrenal system and balances hormones.

"This study further propels holistic medicine’s reach into the mainstream by confirming that ashwagandha root extract boosts resistance to stressors and can be safely utilized as an adaptogen for adults suffering from chronic stress issues."

Subject: Common vitamins linked to a lower risk of pancreatic cancer





While pancreatic cancer is a terribly dangerous disease, a vitamin supplement regime may be able to mitigate some of the risk of developing it. A Chinese study that looked at health data from over 1.2 million people discovered a clear correlation between higher intake of vitamins and lower risk of pancreatic cancer. Specifically, the researchers believe that the vitamins, through a variety of different mechanisms, induce apoptosis in cancer cells. This demonstrates that a healthy diet combined with supplements can greatly reduce your cancer risk.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nearly 40 percent of Americans are expected to have cancer in their lifetime but there is some good news on the natural home front.
  • The good news is that taking vitamins can reduce the risk to pancreatic cancer which accounts for about seven percent of all cancer diagnosis.
  • Ying Liu and his colleagues conducted the research on cancer and vitamins, and it involved about 1,214,995 subjects with pancreatic cancer being about 8,740.

"Fortunately, there are lifestyle changes that can dramatically reduce the risk of falling victim to pancreatic cancer, including a vitamin (and mineral) regimen."

Natural compounds found in aged garlic can be very beneficial to cardiac health. For example, a 2016 Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute study on subjects with metabolic syndrome found that aged garlic extract reduced both the accumulation of new plaque within the arteries and the total amount of plaque present as well. Additional research suggests that aged garlic extract can help reduce C-reactive protein and interleukin levels. The polysulfides in garlic also support greater production of the nitric oxide that helps keep your blood vessels supple, reducing another cardiac risk factor.

Key Takeaways:

  • Aged garlic has several health benefits to the cardiovascular system.
  • As heart disease effects many Americans, eating aged garlic can reduce the risk in 80% of the population.
  • Aged garlic reverses the effects of C protein, which is known to cause inflammation throughout the body.

"The LA BioMed researchers concluded that garlic not only decreased the amount of plaque in the arteries. The extract also stopped new plaque from appearing in the blood vessels. (Related: Aged garlic extract balances your cholesterol levels, study finds.)"

Subject: Plant proteins found to help prevent Type 2 diabetes





A recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition analyzed the diets of more than 2,000 men. It specifically sought to find a correlation between protein sources and diabetes. It found that, in general, men with a higher intake of protein from plants were less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. Conversely, men who got most of their protein from processed or unprocessed meats were more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. Several other studies from Harvard have reached parallel conclusions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers from the University of Eastern Finland looked at the dietary habits of 2000 men to try to learn the impact of protein sources on heart health.
  • Plant-based diets are associated with significant drops in the risk of Type 2 diabetes, even when subjects also are less healthy foods as well.
  • One serving of red meat per day is enough to substantially raise the risk of type 2 diabetes relative to non-meat eaters.

"According to the study, men who had the highest intake of plant proteins were 35 percent less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes compared with those who had the lowest consumption."

Chances are, you or someone you love has dealt with the ramifications of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in some way. While there may not be any way to completely safeguard you and your loved ones from early mortality due to CVD, research is now showing that fiber consumption may play a promising role. A recent study showed that those who consume more fiber are much less likely to face an early demise due to the presence of CVD.

Key Takeaways:

  • While cardiovascular disease is inherently troubling of itsself, those that have it also carry the risk of further complications.
  • Further complications can include a risk of developing chronic hypertension, hyperlipidemia and diabetes.
  • A conjoined research effort, undertaken by the Navarre Health Institute and Navarra University, revealed that subjects that consumed the most fruit and fiber were in a much-lessened mortality bracket.

"A study reports that having a fiber-rich diet lowers the risk of contracting chronic CVDs and Type 2 diabetes, as well as some cancers and inflammatory diseases like rheumatism."

Subject: Eating more citrus fruits is an easy way to prevent dementia





A documented study has shown that citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges may have the ability to prevent dementia. The Japanese study says that eating these fruits was directly linked to improved brain health and memory formation. In fact, the subjects who ate citrus fruits daily were 23% less likely to develop dementia. This is likely due to the nobiletin content in citruses, which also helps to reduce cholesterol levels. There are no studies yet as to how the consumption of citrus fruits affects those who already have dementia, however.

Key Takeaways:

  • In a recent study conducted in Japan it was discovered that people who take citrus fruits like orange, lemons, and grapefruits, can reduce their risk of having dementia.
  • The researchers in the study found a direct link between taking citrus fruits and decreased chances of having dementia which reduced by about 23 percent.
  • Citrus fruits have a neuroprotective effect on those taking it which can be linked to a compound, nobiletin, a flavonoid found in the peel that boosts the brain.

"The study, which spanned for up to seven years, looked at data from over 13,000 older adults in Japan, which included their diet and brain health."

Korean red ginseng may have critically important for people infected by HIV. HIV, which weakens the immune system by targeting T helper cells, can be controlled by antiretrovirals, but these can grow less effective over time. Patients who consumed Korean red ginseng had slower annual loss of T helper cells, and these patients had a longer survival duration as a result. Dosage levels had no real impact, but taking Korean red ginseng for longer periods of time enhanced the benefits.

Key Takeaways:

  • Korean red ginseng, which is also called Panax ginseng, has a long history of use as a supplement for longevity.
  • HIV targets the the body's T cells, causing an ongoing drop in the supply, which ultimately weakens and destabilizes the immune system.
  • Research revealed that HIV-infected study subjects given Panax ginseng experienced a smaller loss of T helper cells.

"The herb displays anti-inflammatory activity and helps manage the immune system. It also contains saponins that exert adjuvant actions against inflammatory disease."

Subject: Fascinating study shows vitamin C reduces the risk of cognitiveimpairment





The scientific journal Nutrients recently published a study from New Zealand which suggests that Vitamin C plays an important part in preventing age-related cognitive impairment. The trial involved 400 New Zealanders over 50, who had their blood levels of Vitamin C checked and completed cognitive testing. Not only did higher levels of Vitamin C in the blood reduce the risk of cognitive impairment, but levels indicative of a moderate deficiency caused this risk to double! Higher levels of Vitamin C were also associated with better metabolic health.

Key Takeaways:

  • One vitamin C specific study used New Zealand natives of 50 years of age.
  • The testing relied on blood levels of the vitamin rather than on dietary intake.
  • Researchers ensured that the 400 test subjects underwent an exhaustive battery of cognitive function tests.

"Recently, a team of scientists from New Zealand found that vitamin C can help reduce the risk of cognitive impairment as you age."

A study has shown that L-carnitine and vitamin E taken together can boost the immune system in response to the immunosuppressing toxin ochratoxin A. The study was conducted with four groups of birds: one that was given the toxin and vitamin E, one given the toxin and L-carnitine, one given the toxin and both supplements, and one given only the toxin. Of the four, the one given both supplements together showed the most resistance to the effects of the toxin, indicating that the combination of the supplements aided the immune system.

Key Takeaways:

  • Ochratoxin A is a toxin created by a fungus that can wreak havoc on the human body by causing suppression of the body's immune system, or immunosuppression.
  • The fungus-based toxin was used in a study that made use of leghorn cockeral chicks as subjects.
  • Although all of the birds received the toxin, some also received doses of vitamin E, L-carnitine, or a combination of both.

A nutrient called Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) has shown potential for combating the degenerative neurological symptoms of Alzheimer’s, according to research published by Life Extension. Mice that were given a PQQ supplement developed smaller deposits of toxic proteins in their brains compared to the mice that did not, and also demonstrated better recall, memory, motor skills and learning relative to the control group. Other research suggests PQQ may help with Parkinson’s symptoms, and improve blood circulation within the brain.

Key Takeaways:

  • Alzheimer's is said to affect one in every three senior citizens and be a leading cause of death.
  • PQQ research indicates that the supplement protects brains against neurotoxicity.
  • Studies using rodents showed that those subjects dosed with PPQ had better learning capacity and recall.

"But there are many ways in which a person can reduce their risk of neurodegeneration as they age, like healthy eating."

A pre-diabetic state and osteoporosis was induced in rodent subjects for both of the studies. One of the studies, conducted in Malaysia, showed that the rodent subjects had better parameters for a number of metabolic syndrome indicators, such as fasting blood glucose and triglycerides. In the case of the Malaysian study, the rodents either received a dose of tocotrienols commensurate with normal human supplementation or a diet stripped of tocotrienols. A Texas-based research study compared the tocotrienols with Metformin, a commonly prescribed diabetic medicine. Results showed that the tocotrienols in higher doses was better than the medicine in instituting bone growth. A third study, also in Malaysia, used human subjects with type 2 diabetes. Markers for the human subjects were also improved for the subjects that consumed tocotrienols.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are so many people in the world today that are suffering from diabetic disorders.
  • Understanding how to use vitamins to combat your disease is a great method to use.
  • You should do everything in your power to reduce the risk of losing density in your bones as you get older.

"Studies have shown that tocotrienols may help inhibit bone loss and regulate blood sugar levels. The tocotrienols used in the studies were derived from the red-orange tropical fruit known as annatto."

Pumpkins don't get the attention of other vegetables. Even during their season, it's the pies made from the meat of the pumpkin that get most of the table time. However, pumpkin seeds should not be relegated to the trash. Like sunflower, and other seeds, they make good snacking. And they have a lot of health benefits for users. For example, they're full of antioxidants, like many veggies, which makes them useful for warding off many unwanted conditions. They're good for hearts and for leveling blood sugar. Study has shown that the seeds benefit the heart in an array of ways. Nitric oxide is enhanced, while blood pressure and cholesterol are lowered. The seeds are protein-packed and fiber-rich, which means that sugar is absorbed more slowly. The seeds are also rich in tryptophan and magnesium, known to promote optimal sleep. Study has also shown that sperm count was enhanced and abnormalities were improved when rodent subjects were given pumpkin seeds. Certain seed properties may have anti-cancer effects as well, even the ability to help with overactive bladder syndrome.

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.

"While the almond diet offered better overall nutritional quality, neither diet with or without almonds improved blood sugar status, nor most cardiovascular risk factors as was expected. However, researchers found that among a subset."

Subject: The potential antidiabetic benefits of moringa





Estimates from the World Health Organization place the possible tally of worldwide diabetics at over 400 million. That figure was established almost 5 years ago. Truly, diabetes is on the rise and rightfully considered an epidemic. All of which explains why scientists around the world are always on the lookout for natural, effective, low-cost treatment modalities that afford minimal to no side effects for the user. This is especially crucial because diabetes is a leading cause of blindness and loss of limbs. The most prevalent form, type 2 diabetes, is manageable with diet and drugs, but many drugs come with the cost of potentially dangerous side effects. Moringa, a native of India and a popular Asian vegetable, is gaining buzz as a superfood. One Cambodian study used obese rodent subjects and garnered some compelling evidence that the superfood could be used to benefit diabetics. For example, the mice used, that were also moringa recipients, had lower fasting glucose levels. The moringa recipients also had lower triglyceride levels and lessened renal impairment. Study suggests that moringa protects the human body from oxidative stress, from inflammation, and even from arsenic. It also acts to reduce cholesterol.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are a lot of benefits that come from the natural plants in the world.
  • Most of the people who suffer from diabetes, in the world and the United States, have the form called Type 2.
  • This new plant that they found is called moringa and the effects of it are apparently very good.

Turmeric and its much-lauded, health-giving component, curcumin, have had a health buzz about them for a long time. The health benefits to those that use turmeric and consequently curcumin, have long been noted. But, though its benefits for a wide array of bodily systems, including the cardiovascular, are not disputed, it has heretofore not been understood if turmeric, or more specifically curcumin, does some of its wonders by lowering lipid levels. The Second Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University has now performed a meta-analysis of available data, surrounding turmeric and curcumin, as a means of filling the knowledge gap. The researchers began by filtering the data, searching for studies revolving around turmeric, cholesterol and triglycerides. To ensure the data was all the more compelling and germane, the researchers trimmed down the parameters even more, allowing for only those tests that involved subjects laboring under the effects of metabolic syndrome or type 2 diabetes. In these cases possible negative effects to the heart would prove particularly relevant. The meta-analysis revealed that turmeric and curcumin had positive effects to impart on the levels of serum triglycerides apparent in its user-subjects. The two components also positively impacted the low-density lipo-protein cholesterol levels of the user-subjects. The researchers theorized that positive chemical activity was initiated by the components, thereby causing the beneficial aspects. Other cholesterol and lipid markers were not affected. In general, turmeric and curcumin have been shown to limit oxidative stress and inflammation as well as benefit the blood vessel lining, all of which can prevent a serious cardiac event.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are a lot of effective ways in which you can help lower your high cholesterol.
  • There are plenty of natural remedies out there that allow you to control your health.
  • These new substances are natural and have been proven to work on numerous different occasions.

Subject: Prevent the number one cause of premature death by simply takingvitamin C





According to the data, it's been estimated that as many as half of all premature deaths are preventable, moreover that poor nutritional intake is at the core of the problem. One such nutritional deficit that could lower the number of premature deaths is the deficit of vitamin C. Vitamin C is a well-known immune system booster. However, it also has an important role to fulfill when it comes to cardiovascular health. The journal of the American College of Nutrition recently attests to this fact. The journal reported findings that agreed that the use of vitamin C reduced the incidence of cardiac disease. The findings were based on a study of over 100 men, many of whom were smokers. Those given the highest dosage of vitamin C slashed their risk for cardiac complications by more than half. Danish research further augments this aspect of vitamin C. Data pools acquired from 100,000+ Danes showed high vitamin C concentrations among those who regularly consumed a large array of fruits and vegetables. This higher level was auspiciously linked with a lowered risk of cardiovascular disease and premature death.

Key Takeaways:

  • Long accumulated data strongly suggests that up to half of all early deaths are preventable.
  • Vitamin C has a profound effect on coronary heart disease, and it has protective ability even when the vitamin C user is a smoker.
  • One recent study which supports this contention used 108 different male subjects, many of whom smoked.

"The reality is that an inexpensive vitamin supplement could reduce the rate of coronary heart disease but mainstream medicine is so deeply entrenched in pharmaceutical dogma, the idea that nutrients can prevent disease is downright blasphemous."

Subject: Take Indian kudzu if you're diabetic: It keeps your kidneys healthy





Diabetes is a serious and chronic condition, which as it progresses can wreak havoc on an array of bodily systems. One potential victim of the havoc is the kidneys. They endure a great deal of oxidative stress in a body that is constantly fighting the effects of diabetes. This ongoing stress overtime does damage the kidneys and can eventually destroy them The condition of oxidative stress endured by kidneys functioning under an ongoing onslaught of diabetic effects is known as diabetic nephropathy. In a worse case scenario it can lead to total renal failure. The organic tuber, Indian Kudzu, is an Aryuvedic medicine staple, besides housing a wealth of antioxidants. Researchers from a Banaras Hindu University recently decided see whether the oxidative power of Indian Kudzu might be able to stand tall against the stress endured by kidneys undergoing diabetic onslaught, thereby protecting them from the ravages of the stress. The study, which used rodent subjects, proved that though oxidative stress in the diabetic rodent subjects was high, the kudzu was able to reduce or reverse some of the damage, due in part to its ability to improve human antioxidant enzyme activity.

Key Takeaways:

  • Diabetes can have many negative effects, including diabetic nephropathy, which can damage and even destroy the kidneys.
  • The condition is caused by oxidative stress, a state that regular consumption of the Indian Kudzu can help slow down and block, making it an effective adjunct to hypertension protocols.
  • The premise that the Kudzu would prove protective was upheld in a study done at A Banaras Hindu University that made use of rodent subjects.

"The tubers are a treasure trove of antioxidants that reduce the effects of oxidative stress and reactive oxygen species related to aging and various ailments."

Higher omega-3s status linked to less depression in population with heart failure

A recent American College of Cardiology study of 108 chronic heart failure patients noted that patients with higher omega-3 index levels as a result of oral supplementation appear to suffer less from depression than the control group. Roughly 20 percent of chronic heart failure patients become clinically depressed. The promising results suggest that increased omega-3 index levels may result in better social functioning and reduced cognitive symptoms of depression as measured by the widely-used Hamilton Depression Scale. More research is needed, however, to better understand the impact of omega-3 indexes on depression.

Key Takeaways:

  • A recent American College of Cardiology study of depression symptoms in 108 chronic heart failure patients compared two omega-3 profile-boosting treatments to a placebo.
  • As measured by the Hamilton Depression Scale, patients with higher omega-3 indices had better social functioning and fewer cognitive impacts.
  • Around 20 percent of chronic heart failure patients get depression symptoms, so this issue certainly merits further research.

The health benefits of eating pecans

Pecans originate from the Midwestern part of the US, and their health benefits are shown to be quite substantial. Pecans are high in vitamin E, which causes them to have large amounts of antioxidants properties. They can also help clean and regulate oxidation processes in order to help contribute to the prevention of various cancers. Studies have indicated that consumption of pecans may also have the ability to help those with liver damage, but it has not been proven in human subjects as of right now.

Key Takeaways:

  • Pecans are rich in nutrients that can help people avoid cardiovascular disease.
  • The phenolic acids in pecans are key in preventing cell mutations, which in turn can prevent cancer from developing.
  • Unfortunately, many pecan recipes require a lot of sugar and corn syrup, but there are recipes available that use natural ingredients.

"Referred to as Carya illinoinensis in scientific literature, pecans are a member of the Juglandaceae family, which makes it a relative of the hickory and the walnut. Pecans are also considered native to North America; their existence has predated even the earliest human settlements."

Cut your risk for liver cancer by HALF by just increasing your vitamin D levels

Study suggests that close to 40% of individuals will experience cancer, personally in their lifetime, whether it happens as a small brush with an easily removed melanoma, or whether it manifests as something far more lethal. Much of how the 'cancer' card plays out for any one of us, however, is beyond our scope t do much about. But, we can control what we consume, which can in turn affect our chances.

For example, study also suggests that use of vitamin D can significantly slice one's cancer risk. However, while the general slice afforded those that make use of vitamin D is estimated at a generous 20%, the vitamin offers an even deeper cut when it comes to one of the most deadly cancers, liver cancer. The data, based on thousands of Japanese study subjects, followed for more than a decade, suggests that the risk, specific to liver cancer, could be as high as 50%.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you have high levels of Vitamin D, your risk of liver cancer can be reduced by as much as 50 percent.
  • One study showed that taking Vitamin D supplements four times a week reduces one's risk of developing breast cancer.
  • It is difficult to get enough Vitamin D from diet alone, so spending a lot of time outdoors in the sun is key.

This is interesting research on chlorella supplementation. It actually turns out that unhealthy subjects responded better to it than healthier ones. This is probably due to the fact that their health was so much in need of improvement. There need to be more studies on this subject now because we need to know which health conditions would respond the best to it. Scientific studies do well when they have a diverse group of test subjects with different conditions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Taking the supplement Chlorella has been shown to have benefits on health, seemingly more so on sick and/or malnourished individuals.
  • Chlorella has a type of fiber that binds to fat and as such lowers the absorption of Cholesterol.
  • Just because there appears to be benefits, researchers haven't concluded if Chlorella is the sole cause, but it looks good.

Subject: Lutein, found in leafy greens, may counter cognitive aging





A website that reports on science news has an article summarizing a scientific study about lutein. This is a substance found in leafy green vegetables such as spinach and kale. A university study was conducted on subjects in the age 25 to 45 range. The study found that those subjects who had higher levels of lutein were neurologically closer to younger people. The article cited its source and included a link to the study. A photo of an avocado smoothie is included.

Key Takeaways:

  • Spinach and kale can keep you both physically and mentally fit.
  • Lute in, found in green leafy vegetables , is important to get from food sources because it's not naturally found in the body.
  • This study proved lute in helped attention function in older adults but more studies are necessary to assess memory and learning.

"The study, which included 60 adults aged 25 to 45, found that middle-aged participants with higher levels of lutein -- a nutrient found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale, as well as avocados and eggs -- had neural responses that were more on par with younger individuals than with their peers."

Subject: Treating Painful Fibromyalgia Symptoms With Cannabis





Cannabis may serve as a treatment for those people suffering from Fibromyalgia. Many current patients suffering from this have no seen very much help through convention treatments, like therapy and medication. If the treatments do reduce the symptom of Fibromyalgia, they're usually accompanied by adverse side affects. All the symptoms that have arisen from Firbromyalgia have been reduced, studies show. The symptoms of pain, sleep disturbance, migraines, and fatigues, along with many other, have been shown to be reduced with cannobinoid treatment. Although studies are not conclusive, cannabis rich treatments for Fibromyalgia have been highly successful in many patients.

Key Takeaways:

  • Fibromyalgia symptoms include chronic, diffuse pain, migraines, sleep disturbance and irritable bowel.
  • Abnormal processing of pain signals, via the nervous system, is a feature of a sub-type of the disease, called Myofascial Pain Syndrome.
  • Enhanced relaxation, better sleep and less stiffness were notable take-aways for research subjects of one Spanish study, using unconventional treatment for people with the disease.

"A small group of fibromyalgia patients who received daily doses of THC and no other pain medications reported a significant reduction in daily recorded pain."

Subject: Scientists stunned to learn that gut bacteria seem to have control over your moods and brain function





A team of researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles have found a link between their female subjects' gut bacteria and higher levels of anxiety, irritability, and distress. Subjects whose fecal matter contained the bacteria strain Prevotella displayed an increased number of neural connections linked to emotional, attention, and sensory brain regions. The findings of this study may help explain why individuals with irritable bowel syndrome and functional bowel problems are more prone to developing depression and anxiety.

Key Takeaways:

  • Scientists have now proven a link between gut microbes and emotions in humans
  • Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles observed 40 healthy women and attempted to identify brain and behavioral characteristics based on their gut microbiota profiles.
  • These results support the age-old assumption that there is a connection between gut microbes and emotional response.

"This is the first time that behavioral and neurobiological differences associated with microbial composition have been studied in this way."

choline, a vital, vitamin-like nutrient, is overestimated in its importance. involved in the metabolic process, the transport of lipids, and synthesis of neurotransmitters, just to name a few. both low levels and high levels of choline have negative health risks. a recent study found that choline is also vital to bone health in humans. low levels of choline have been linked to low bone density.Choline deficiency was found to be common in middle aged men and older women. The body can synthesize some choline on its own, but most of your choline comes from your diet, so make sure you eat choline risk foods and get your daily dose of bone building nutrients!

Key Takeaways:

  • Choline has been found to be an essential nutrient, necessary for bone health and metabolism health.
  • Choline has pros and cons. Low intake may cause fatty liver, and possible muscle damage. High choline intake may lower blood pressure, cause digestive problems, and sweating.
  • A study of 14,000 patients revealed low choline intake of an average of 160 mg per day. A good portion of these subjects had low bone mineral density. Choline can help to build bone health.

"They discovered that the average choline intake was significantly lower than the daily recommended intake — 255 mg/d for women and 259 mg/d for men aged 46–49 years, and for older adults 71-74 years, the intake was 265 mg/d for women and 258 mg/d for men."

Subject: Are walnuts the key to fighting prostate cancer? Researchers think so





Prostate cancer is diagnosed in over a hundred thousand men each year. Researchers are seeking answers to questions about the role of diet in promoting and preventing this disease. A recent study looked at the impact of walnuts fed to mice. Some studies have suggested walnut consumption shrunk tumors in mice. Researchers have since wondered whether a specific component of walnuts was responsible for this result. Further study suggests a synergetic effect is responsible rather than a single component. These trials present intriguing new paths for research in human subjects.

Key Takeaways:

  • Walnuts are helpful in fighting prostate cancer, but you may need to eat the whole nut.
  • It has already been established that diet influences prostate cancer.
  • Omega 3's are nice, but by themselves won't prevent prostate cancer.

"It’s becoming increasingly clear in nutrition that it’s never going to be just one thing; it’s always a combination."

Can curcumin Fight Cancer?

Subject: Can curcumin Fight Cancer?

Curcumin is a bright yellow liquid that is produced by some plants, and some people were led to believe that it has the properties to cure cancer which has been found to be entirely false. Although the research has not been abandoned altogether, it has so far led to nothing, and this means that it can not under any circumstance help fight cancer. Some patients have been found to consume up to eight grams in a single day for three to four months; there were still no changes. Although a research scientist had published that there was chance of the plant, form the ginger family to it curing cancer, but now the report has been retracted and deemed fraudulent and misleading by the original publisher.

It is in this light that the many cancer patients that had seen it as a means of escaping that deadly disease now finds themselves whether they were in the first place despite taking curcumin in large amounts. Some of these patients have reported diarrhea as well as mild headaches although the studies showed no signs of any form of toxicity from the curcumin. This well designed clinical research has shown that there is no relationship between it and the curing of cancer.

In human subjects, however, it was found that it reduces the C - reactive protein significantly. There was no relationship established between the dose and response, though. This is not good news for any cancer patients out there, but it does shed a lot of light on this subject and eliminates the need for the patients to keep on doing something that is not helping them. It is imperative to find alternative means to curing cancer, but this is not the way as it is not going to help with much. So, the answer is that Curcumin does not in any way help your body fight cancer.

Subject: Anti-Aging Powers of Broccoli Enzyme





Recent research found that mice who were given NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide) showed less signs of aging. The study, performed on mice, showed that subjects who received NMN had the same energy and metabolism levels as young mice. Though NMN is not readily available for human consumption, it can be found in foods like cucumbers, broccoli, edamame, avocados and cabbage.

Key Takeaways:

  • A great deal of human health depends on how well the body is able to manufacture and use energy.
  • Since human cells depend on the same process of energy production, there is hope that this will be translated into a method that can aid people in remaining healthier as they age.
  • The researchers made comparisons every three months until 17 months of age.

"The ability of cells to produce energy gradually declines with age."

L-Leucine as an essential Amino Acid
TopPreviousNext

Date: May 31, 2014 06:54 AM

Subject: L-Leucine as an essential Amino Acid

amino acidIntroduction

L-Leucine is a a-amino acid with the chemical formulae HO2CCH(NH2)CH2CH(CH3)2. It is a hydrophopic amino acid to its aliphatic isobutyl side chain. L-Leucine is an essential amino acid since the human body can’t synthesize it, and it therefore must be ingested.

What is an essential amino acid

These are the amino acids that can’t be synthesized by the body of the organism hence it must be supplied in the diet. These amino acids is important not because they are important than others, but simply because the body can’t synthesize them.

Phenylalanine, L- Leucine, Valine, Tryptophan, Threonine, meyhionine, iso - Leucine, lysine and histidine are some of amino acids regarded as essential for humans beings.

The main difference between essential and non-essential amino acids is somehow since some proteins can be synthesized from others. The sulfur containing amino acids such as L-Leucine may sometimes be referred to as an essential amino acid.

Effects of L-Leucine deficiency

Majority of amino acids are important in the human diet. An experiment carried out by William Cummings Rose showed that lack of L-Leucine results to symptoms of exhaustion, nervousness and dizziness. Results further showed that these symptoms were encountered to lesser extent whenever human subjects were deprived of an essential amino acid.

In plants and other micro-organisms, L-Leucine is synthesized from pruvic acid by several enzymes. These enzymes include:

· a-Isopropylmalate synthase

· L-Leucineaminotransferase

· a-Isopropylmalate isomerase

· Acetolactate synthase

· Acetohydroxy acid isomeroreductase

· Dihydroxyacid dehydratase

Importance of L- Leucine

L-Leucine is used by the adipose tissue, liver and the muscle. In muscle tissue and adipose L-Leucine is used in the formation of sterols. Ironically the combined usage of L-Leucine in the muscle and adipose is seven times greater than its use in the liver.

L-Leucine is also used in stimulation of the muscle protein synthesis. In dietary , L-Leucine is used in to slow down the degradation of muscle tissue by increasing the synthesis of muscle proteins in aged rats however this does not work in elderly men. L-Leucine helps you lose weight and spare muscle when dieting.

However L-Leucine can’t be associated as the main reason in muscular growth for the entire populatin. L-Leucine activates the mammalian target that regulates the growth cells in rats.

Negative effects of L- Leucine

L-Leucine cause neurologic complications which may be fatal if not control in time.

Studies also show that over activity of the liver is caused by taking L-Leucine supplement, excess L-Leucine may also cause pellagra, whose symptoms include dermatitis, diarrhea, dementia and eventually death.

Can DMAE Help Memory And Mood?

Subject: Can DMAE Help Memory And Mood?

moodDMAE

Do you ever feel like you are experiencing lapses in memory or you have a low general mood? There is evidence that DMAE might be able to help with both memory and mood. DMAE occurs naturally in the human brain. When we take supplemental amounts of the compound, brain function effects can be seen.

DMAE as a Supplement

It is thought that the supplement works by increasing the speed of the brain's turnover and synthesis of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter plays a strong role in maintaining general mental ability. It also works at supporting a stable, healthy memory in older adults. It is also believed that DMAE might work by stopping choline metabolism. This allows the free choline to gather in the blood, go into the brain, and stimulate the cholinergic receptors.

A French double-blind study was performed to measure how much of an impact the supplement DMAE has on both mood and vigilance. Four of the subjects were categorized as having anxiety, and four other subjects were the controls. They were each given 1200mg of DMAE over the course of 5 days. These subjects were measured daily for their EEG and convergence of the inter hemispheres of the brain. In the case of the four subjects that were given the supplement, progressive sync of the two brain hemispheres was found. This is correlated with increased neuromotor control, increased verbal memory, improvement in behavioral tasks, as well as better control of anxiety.

Another use for DMAE worth mentioning is its affects on learning deficiencies like ADD or hyperkinesia. Many doctors prescribe amphetamines for conditions like this, but DMAE has also proven useful. According to studies, hyperactivity and irritability decrease, and scholastic ability improves from supplementing with DMAE.

In addition to improving these conditions there is evidence that DMAE can improve life span, IQ, and motor mechanisms. It is very important to take the correct dosage of DMAE. I would start with taking 200-400mg first, and work your way up from there.

Memory Loss - The Benefits of DHA to your Brain and Memory

Subject: Memory Loss - The Benefits of DHA to your Brain and Memory

Benefits of DHA

brain memoryAs the human being grows older, he/she experiences physiological changes that may interrupt normal brain function. For instance, it may take him/her longer than usual to learn new information and retain it because the brain is not as quick as it used to be. As a matter of fact, the slowing down of mental processes is often mistaken as total memory loss. But in real sense, the brain can learn or retrieve information if it is given more time.

The brain has the ability to produces new cells regardless of a person’s age. This simply means aging does not necessarily cause memory loss. It is your health habits, lifestyle and daily activities that affect the health of your brain. Everyone can avert memory loss, boost their cognitive skills and protect their grey matter, age notwithstanding.

How Does DHA Improve Memory?

DHA is an acronym for the words Docosahexaenoic acid. DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that forms the main structural element of the testicles, sperm, the cerebral cortex and retina. The following foods are rich in DHA: herring, anchovies, fish roe or caviar, Bluefin, sardines, algae, swordfish, breast milk (instant milk formula as well). DHA is also manufactured from microalgae for commercial purposes.

A study was conducted to find out whether DHA supplements can boost brain function in individuals experiencing age-related cognitive decline. It was established that DHA is effective in improving memory and learning. In this study, the subjects were administered with either 900mg per day DHA or placebo for a period of six months. Learning and memory tests were conducted before and after the study. Those who were administered with DHA demonstrated significant improvements in both learning and memory after the study was complete. In another study, DHA was administered to patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, but the patients did not record any significant change. It can therefore be concluded that DHA is most effective when used as a preventive measure. In the first study, subjects had mild cognitive disorders but showed remarkable improvement after being supplemented with DHA, unlike those in the second study. 

Conclusion

Memory loss can have devastating effects on the patient and his family, but this can be avoided through proper nutrition and supplementation. DHA supplements ensure that there are sufficient amounts of this vital fat in our brain tissues to maintain normal brain function even as we age. A dose of 100mg everyday normalizes cell membrane stores of DHA over time.

What Causes High Blood Pressure And What Can Reduce And Prevent It?

Subject: What Causes High Blood Pressure And What Can Reduce And Prevent It?

High blood pressure is one of the most common conditions people suffer from in first-world countries; throughout the last few decades civilized countries have becomes exponentially more reliant on technology, without forgetting the rise of the fast food industry. In conjunction with the sedentary lifestyles most people lead nowadays, this has led to an increase of people with cardiovascular health problems. According to the American Heart Association, around 33% of adults in the United States are suffering from hypertension.

The silent killer

The disease is not known as the silent killer for nothing, as a person can live with it for years and years without even experiencing any symptoms. However, as time goes by the disease starts to take its toll on the body, with symptoms including dizziness, headaches and nosebleeds. However, if gone unchecked for a long time the condition is going to worsen considerably, eventually leading to the development of serious cardiovascular problems, including coronary heart disease.

What precisely causes high blood pressure?

For starters, one's body fat percentage plays an important role; the more fat a person has, the more the walls of their arteries are clogged, the higher the blood pressure rises. A lack of physical activity has also been known to help the condition develop as it forces your heart to contract itself more often. Intake of products such as tobacco, alcohol, sodium and potassium can all lead to an increase in your blood pressure, as well as your risk of heart disease.

Stress is a factor which often gets overlooked, but the truth is that when you tense up, your heart starts pumping blood faster, which consequently increases the pressure in your arteries. Finally, there is the one factor which cannot be controlled: genetics. Indeed, if a person has a family history of hypertension, that person is likely to suffer from it as well.

While it is possible to treat high blood pressure with chemical over-the-counter pharmaceutical remedies, they often bring about a slew of side effects which can cause problems even worse than the ones experienced with the blood pressure.

Natural Remedies

Fortunately, there are a few natural remedies which can be used to fight the condition.

For starters, you can take magnesium supplements which are sold by numerous companies, generally in the form of capsules. Magnesium is the most common mineral needed by the body and it helps to regulate one's blood levels. If you don't feel like taking supplements, you could always eat foods rich in magnesium, which basically translates to consuming lots of green vegetables, nuts, seeds and unrefined grains. 

Hibiscus tea

Hibiscus tea is another apparent miracle of nature; drinking it on a regular basis will slowly decrease one's hypertension. A clinical study was actually conducted in order to determine the tea's effectiveness, and it was found that it can noticeably improve the condition of those suffering from mild or moderate hypertension.

Coenzyme Q10

Finally, you might want to look into the Coenzyme Q10, a natural supplement which has undergone clinical studies. More precisely, there was a twelve-week double-blind placebo-controlled study involving eighty-three subjects with hypertension. They were treated for the entire duration with 17.8 mm Hg of the Coenzyme Q10, and in the end their pressure was significantly reduced.

Needless to say, there are countless more natural remedies which can help deal with high blood pressure, with the best part being that most of them don't cost much and are readily available for purchase anywhere. In some cases, you can even do it at home by yourself. All in all, as long as there are natural methods to try it is highly recommended that you stay away from pharmaceutical treatments; not only will they burn a hole in your wallet, they may very well leave you worse for wear.

Coconut Oil for Memory Enhancement

Subject: Coconut Oil for Memory Enhancement

Coconut oil has been widely used for centuries for various purposes. Mainly, it is a cooking ingredient, used for frying and for adding flavor to meals. Aside from this, many nations have different ways of using it as treatment for various illnesses. Countries like Jamaica, Panama, and India believe that ingesting the oil helps prevent contracting any disease and helps in the speedy recovery when sick.

Topical Uses:

People from the Philippines and Thailand use the oil for massaging to provide relief from painful muscles and joints. Other topical uses are for moisturizing of the skin and for the healthy growth of hair.

Since 2008, new studies have been conducted to test the effects of coconut oil in enhancing the memory and to cure Alzheimer's disease. 

MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) Benefit:

The most astounding find is the presence of MCT or medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil in high concentration. This MCT creates a string of processes that ultimately helps in curing neurodegenerative diseases.

MCT against Amyloid-Beta

Amyloid-beta is a protein that forms into plaques in the brains. They decrease the efficient functioning of the nerve cells that then causes the decline in memory.

Most drugs prescribed to Alzheimer patients target these plaques, to dissolve them and consequently see an improvement. Studies done on dogs by incorporating MCT in their diets showed that the levels of amyloid-beta has declined, which is a very positive effect. Likewise, energy levels in the brain have gone up among the test subjects.

MCT to Promote Ketone

One cause of Alzheimer's disease is the inability of the brain to metabolize glucose and transform it to energy. As you all know, glucose is the main energy source of the body that provides it the energy it needs to function. This glucose comes from the carbohydrate that comes from food sources. Without this fuel, the brain cells could degenerate. Fortunately, glucose is not the only source of energy for the brain. It can also come from ketones, which are produced from fats in the liver.

However, the liver does not continually produce this. The human body, being smart as it is, only produces ketones when the glucose level drops in order to compensate for the loss of energy source. This is why people who have cognitive disorders often go on a fat and protein diet to trigger the production of ketones, by lowering their intake of carbohydrates. Still, maintaining such a diet for long periods is hard. The good thing is studies have shown that ingesting MCT has increased the level of ketones in the body, regardless of the amount of glucose present in the system. It is believed that MCT is converted to ketone, thus, providing the brain the energy it needs.

MCT and Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Another study done on dogs showed an increased level of omega-3 fatty acids in their brain. Omega-3 fatty acids have many benefits to the body, including improvement of brain function. They support the effective transmission of energy from one neuron to another through the synapses. This consequently makes learning easier, promotes faster reactions, and heightens memory.

Unfortunately, this fatty acid is not produced in the body and people have to rely on food sources, such as fish and nuts. Studies have shown that MCT from coconut oil induces the production of omega-3 from fats that are already present in the body.
