This is what a group of scientists recently found in an experiment on 12-week old male mice fed a high-fat diet eight hours a day. One group were subjected to time-restricted feeding (tRF), while another ate food any time they wanted (ad lib feeding). The scientists reported that tRF mice consumed the same amount of calories found in a high-fat diet, yet they didn’t become obese. They didn’t develop hyperinsulinemia (excess insulin), hepatic steatosis (fatty liver), or inflammation. They also showed better motor coordination. The tRF mice also … [Read more...] about Time-restricted eating is the best way to lose weight and keep it off

The article, published in the journal Early Intervention in Psychiatry, also indicated that these nutrient-based compounds could be used as an adjunctive treatment in first episode psychosis by reducing its symptoms. In a systematic review, researchers at Western Syndey University’s National Institute of Complementary Medicine (NICM) Health Research Institute assessed 11 studies to determine whether there is “real evidence” behind the claim that nutrients can actually help young people with psychosis. The researchers discovered that certain nutrient supplements, together … [Read more...] about Clinical trials prove that antioxidants and amino acid supplements can treat psychosis

One such drawback is the lack of reliable docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) sources. This omega-3 fatty acid is usually obtained from animal products, with fatty fish and seafood having the most abundant DHA content. As such, vegetarian and vegan populations are often unable to consume adequate amounts of DHA. Yet, according to a team of Australian researchers, taking algal supplements is an easy way to get around this. To arrive at this conclusion, the investigators reviewed five studies on plant-based sources of DHA. The five studies comprised three randomized … [Read more...] about Plant-based DHA found to adequately meet nutritional needs for vegans and vegetarians
iStock: CalypsoArtThe bright yellow spice called turmeric and its main active compound curcumin offer countless potential benefits, but there is one problem. There is very little bioavailability. In other words, your body can only absorb a very small amount after consuming it.The solution could be this: just combine black pepper and turmeric. Like turmeric, black pepper is an aromatic spice with lots of benefits, thanks to its major bioactive element piperine. And curcumin plus piperine may mean even greater benefits for your health than turmeric alone.Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is arguably the most powerful medicinal herb in the world at fighting disease, and it is backed by more than 10,000 peer-reviewed studies. However, it is the ancient principles of Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that have led modern science to document the benefits of herbs and spices such as turmeric.In Ayurveda and TCM, turmeric is a warming spice that first cools and dries the body in the short … [Read more...] about Curcumin + Piperine: Benefits of Combining Black Pepper and Turmeric
Obesity is not merely a cosmetic problem, but a severe threat to health and longevity. That old saying, “The longer the belt, the shorter the life,” is entirely accurate. Associated with obesity are diabetes and heart disease among others. This can be confirmed by Googling or Yahooing, “Could Sulfur Deficiency be a Contributing Factor in Obesity, Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?” written by Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a noted scientist at MIT. In order to make this a complete article I’m going to include some of the findings of the first article on the subject of Obesity Prevention. The origins of obesity often lie in early childhood. Statistically, children who are overweight by age 2 turn into fat adults more frequently than their lean playmates as early feeding patterns set the stage for adult obesity. The most common mistake is fattening the child with excess starch and cow’s milk. Most infants receive starchy foods as … [Read more...] about Put an end to people seeing you and saying “fat, fat, the water rat!
