A ketone body called beta-hydroxybutyrate, that is produced during fasting or a ketogenic diet, protects the vascular system. This molecule produced during fasting or calorie restriction has anti-aging effects on the vascular system, which could reduce the occurrence and severity of human diseases related to blood vessels, such as cardiovascular disease, according to a new study.
This study aimed to compare changes in genes expression associated with inflammation and apoptosis in response to heat stress caused by sauna between people with varying cardiorespiratory fitness levels.
Scientists have converted “Fat Cells” into “Stem Cells” which could potentially repair any damaged tissues in the body. The fat cells are first collected from the body. They are then converted into adult stem cells, with the help of growth factors. The adult stem cells are then induced to become “Pluripotent Stem Cells”, which can give rise to any type of cell in the body.
Valter Longo, PhD, is a biochemist and professor of gerontology and biological sciences at the University of Southern California (USC). He directs the USC Longevity Institute as well as the Oncology and Longevity Program at the Institute of Molecular Oncology Foundation in Milan, Italy. His research centers on understanding the fundamental genetic and biochemical mechanisms of aging in yeast, mice, and humans. Dr. Longo seeks to identify shared molecular pathways in simple organisms and humans that can be modulated to protect against multiple stresses and treat or prevent age-related diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and others.
The most commonly consumed vitamin and mineral supplements provide no consistent health benefit or harm, suggests a new study led by researchers at St. Michael's Hospital and the University of Toronto. Published today in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, the systematic review of existing data and single randomized control trials published in English from January 2012 to October 2017 found that multivitamins, vitamin D, calcium and vitamin C—the most common supplements—showed no advantage or added risk in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke or premature death. Generally, vitamin and mineral supplements are taken to add to nutrients that are found in food.
Stress can lead to anxiety and symptoms of depression, which are caused, in part, by neuroinflammatory processes. Studies in mice by a team at the University of Colorado Boulder have now shown how injections of the bacterium Mycobacterium vaccae can prevent these stress-related inflammatory responses in the brain and reduce stress-induced anxiety behavior.
A daily dose of baking soda may help reduce the destructive inflammation of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, scientists say. They have some of the first evidence of how the cheap, over-the-counter antacid can encourage our spleen to promote instead an anti-inflammatory environment that could be therapeutic in the face of inflammatory disease, scientists report.
Scientists have identified specific gut bacteria that play an essential role in the anti-seizure effects of the ketogenic diet. The study is the first to establish a causal link between seizure susceptibility and the gut microbiota -- the 100-trillion-or-so bacteria and other microbes that reside in our intestines.
Eric M. Verdin, M.D. is the fifth president and chief executive officer of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging and is a professor of Medicine at UCSF. Dr. Verdin's laboratory focuses on the role of epigenetic regulators in the aging process, the role of metabolism and diet in aging and on the chronic diseases of aging.
By now you’ve heard all the reasons to go plant-based or vegan. Or so you thought. On today’s podcast, Beyond Meat CEO Ethan Brown discusses his company’s rise as a producer of plant-based meat replacements, heat he’s facing from Big Beef and why even professional athletes are choosing Beyond burgers over the real thing.
Compounds of plant origin and food components have attracted scientific attention for use as agents for cancer prevention and treatment. Rosemary extract contains polyphenols that were shown to have anti-cancer and other health benefits.
Fasting is showing up more and more often in popular culture. It’s been discussed in best-selling books, and celebrities from Jimmy Kimmel to Hugh Jackman have endorsed it as a way to promote weight loss and better sleep. But what is fasting, and is there science to back up the claims about its benefits? The New York Times tackled both of these questions in their Well blog.
Fasting is the process of not eating food for a specific period of time. People fast for a variety of reasons. Some religions encourage their members to fast in certain circumstances. Some health professionals believe that a short-term fast can help clear the body of toxins that build up during the processes of digestion. Others use modified fasts as a way of identifying whether a person has sensitivities to certain foods.
What’s the telltale sign of spring for you? Is it the weather finally breaking and the trees starting to bloom? Or is it relentless itchy eyes and a runny nose that has you reaching for the antihistamines?So what’s the solution? We talked to our ND, Dr. Jeremy Wolf, about a few natural remedies to help keep you from sniffling through an entire season!
When it comes to aging, the approach seems to be fairly one sided: we want to increase our lifespans. While increasing lifespan may be possible, the idea of infinitely extending it seems somewhat far-fetched. However, what does not seem far fetched is the idea of facilitating a healthy aging process, rather than trying to completely halt it. The reality is that we will more than likely never be able to fully halt aging, so why don’t we focus our efforts on aging in a sustainable manner?
Getting the right vitamins and minerals can make a big difference in the way you feel each day. When you are lacking in a specific area, it can take its toll in peculiar ways. Studies from the past decade or so have suggested that a vast majority of people are living with health conditions brought on by a lack of magnesium. These same studies point to the fact that diets these days consist of less magnesium than the human body needs.
Collagen has been a top-selling product for skin health for many years but did you know that this powerful supplement offers many other health benefits? Let’s look at 4 ways collagen can improve your health.
Mushrooms have been used for centuries. The oldest human mummy, dated at over 4,000 years old, was found with a kit that had remnants of Piptoporus betulinus, a mushroom still used today. In Ancient China, special mushrooms, including the reishi fungi, were used as tonics and reserved for royalty. The Egyptians were also one of the first people to use mushrooms. They associated mushrooms with immortality, and included them as a regular addition to the diets of the Pharaohs and royal family. They loved them so much, they called them “sons of the gods” and thought that the storm god Set created them by hurling lightning bolts coated in mushroom-seed to earth. We may no longer believe the mythology behind their arrival on Earth, but modern scientific studies are showing just how many uses mushrooms have, and the amazing compounds found within them.
The health benefits of whiskey include its ability to aid in weight loss, slow down the onset of dementia, improve heart health, prevent and manage diabetes, increase HDL cholesterol, fight against cancer, eliminate blood clots, and strengthen the immune system. Generally, whiskey is one of the healthiest forms of alcohol available.
The word “nootropic” was coined in 1972, by Romanian psychologist and chemist Corneliu E. Giurgea. Its etymology derives from the Greek words νους nous, meaning "mind", and τρέπειν trepein meaning "to turn." Giurgea defined a nootropic as a compound that enhances an aspect of human cognition, while being extremely safe, nontoxic, or neuroprotective.
If you’re searching for a brain boost in pill form, your hunt may lead you to nootropics. Nootropics get their name from the Greek word for “mind," and manufacturers claim they enhance focus, memory, and cognitive function.
Stanford scientists have identified a small group of neurons that communicates goings-on in the brain’s respiratory control center to the structure responsible for generating arousal throughout the brain.
Science has now proven that the legendary Wim Hof Method of breath control and cold-training can dramatically enhance energy levels, improve circulation, reduce stress, boost the immune system, strengthen the body and successfully combat many diseases. While Wim Hof himself has run marathons in -30 C in shorts, swum hundreds of meters under the ice, sat in a tank of ice for 90 minutes without his core temperature changing and boosted his metabolism by over 300%, The Way of The Iceman documents how anyone can use Wims methods to transform their health and strength, quickly and safely.
This may be further evidence that it is the processed foods and refined sugar that can make saturated fat dangerous but in the absence of that junk food saturated fat is not bad (however, other genetic factors can also be important here). Many of the studies out there do not differentiate between a person eating a low refined-carb/high-saturated fat diet and the standard American diet.
The changed landscape in obesity and dietary patterns suggests a need to reassess the dominant diet-heart paradigm and related dietary recommendations, ie, the strategy of replacing total and saturated fats with carbohydrates.
While cognitive abilities naturally decline with age, eating one serving of leafy green vegetables a day may aid in preserving memory and thinking skills as a person grows older, according to a study by researchers at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. The study results were published in the Dec. 20, issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
Muscular strength, an important component of physical fitness, has an independent role in the prevention of chronic diseases whereas muscular weakness is strongly related to functional limitations and physical disability. Making muscular strength inversely and independently associated with all-cause mortality.
Too much of a good thing is bad right? A new study published in JAMA Network Open suggests that exercise is a clear exception. It found that any level of cardiovascular fitness — including the kind you’d see from elite athletes — is linked to staying alive longer.
Strength training and cardio exercise affect the body differently with regard to the types of hormones they release into the blood, new research shows. One of the conclusions of the study is that cardio exercise produces a far greater amount of the metabolic hormone FGF21 than strength training.
“We all know it's healthier to eat less meat, especially red meat! The problem is, a lot of people (especially guys!) worry that if they eat less meat, that they'll lose muscle. But once you MEAT Robbie (lololol!), you'll realize...it just might not be true 💞 Thanks Robert Garcia for showing us how it's done!”
New research shows that using the legs, particularly in weight-bearing exercise, sends signals to the brain that are vital for the production of healthy neural cells. The groundbreaking study fundamentally alters brain and nervous system medicine -- giving doctors new clues as to why patients with motor neuron disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal muscular atrophy and other neurological diseases often rapidly decline when their movement becomes limited.
Consumption of sodium bicarbonate (300 mg/kg 1-2 h before exercise) can temporarily increase blood bicarbonate concentrations, enhancing extracellular buffering of hydrogen ions which accumulate and efflux from the working muscle. Such 'bicarbonate loading' provides an ergogenic strategy for sporting events involving high rates of anaerobic glycolysis which are otherwise limited by the body's capacity to manage the progressive increase in intracellular acidity. Studies show that bicarbonate loading strategies have a moderate positive effect on the performance of sports involving 1-7 min of sustained strenuous exercise, and may also be useful for prolonged sports involving intermittent or sustained periods of high-intensity work rates.
Sodium bicarbonate intake has been shown to improve exercise tolerance, but the effects on high-intensity intermittent exercise are less clear. Thus, the aim of the present study was to determine the effect of sodium bicarbonate intake on Yo-Yo intermittent recovery test level 2 performance in trained young men. In conclusion, high-intensity intermittent exercise performance is improved by prior intake of sodium bicarbonate in trained young men, with concomitant elevations in blood alkalosis and peak blood lactate levels, as well as lowered rating of perceived exertion.
Both astronauts and patients affected by chronic movement-limiting pathologies face impairment in muscle and/or brain performance. Increased patient survival expectations and the expected longer stays in space by astronauts may result in prolonged motor deprivation and consequent pathological effects. Severe movement limitation can influence not only the motor and metabolic systems but also the nervous system, altering neurogenesis and the interaction between motoneurons and muscle cells.
Armwrestling is a sport in which two opponents, positioned opposite each other and each with an elbow on a stable surface, grasp the other’s hand and attempt to push the opponent’s arm down to the surface. Competitive armwrestling may be performed in either a standing or sitting position, and players may participate in both right- and left-handed contests. Played both casually and competitively, arm wrestling, also known as wristwrestling or arm sports, has roots that began in antiquity and continue today.
It seems these days that the building blocks of proteins, affectionately known as “amino acids”, are viewed as tiny little gold nuggets that bestow superhuman powers upon anyone lucky enough to stumble upon them in a sports gel, capsule, fizzy drink or cocktail.
Business Insider sat down in an interview with action star Terry Crews as he explains the health benefits of Intermittent fasting and how it keeps him in shape.
No matter how dedicated you are to your personal fitness goals, there will be times when you can’t even. Working out is an admirable goal, but you never know when the pressures and responsibilities from your daily routine might get in the way of you hitting the gym.
A 2014 study showed this increased epinephrine (greater than first time bungee jumpers while laying in bed!), increased norepinephrine, increased anti-inflammatory cytokines (IL-10), decreased pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-alpha), decreased carbon dioxide blood levels, increased blood pH to 7.75 (in some cases), which is actually a mild respiratory alkalosis.
"The bottom line is that there are clear differences in how the microbiome of somebody who is obese versus somebody who is lean responds to exercise," Woods said. "We have more work to do to determine why that is."
During studies of probiotic bacteria and obesity, we discovered that male mice routinely consuming purified lactic acid bacteria originally isolated from human milk had larger testicles and increased serum testosterone levels compared to their age-matched controls.

With all the different kinds of supplements from the many "Health & Fitness" companies out there, it can be hard to decide which products to go with. There are many factors to take into consideration when looking into these supplements. Like making sure they are free of the harmful additives that I covered in a previous article including lead, mercury, PCB's, hydrogenated oils and artificial colors. Something that seems like it could easily be avoided by buying products labeled "Natural", but even these products can contain harmful ingredients.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”― Hippocrates. This is something that many of us have steered away from because of the busy, stressful and sometimes overwhelming lifestyles that we live in modern times.

Got milk? More importantly, what does your milk have in it? With increasing demand for dairy, many farmers have resorted to Factory Farming. This is a process in which farm animals are kept in factory type environments. Standing in their own waste, confined to small areas. This waste, when left untreated leaks into ground and surface water. In some cases polluting the water supply. These animals don't live anything like they were intended to.
We all know that getting an adequate amount of sleep is better for you. I feel as if that’s fairly common knowledge by now. (Thanks, Internet!)

So how does it work?

With plant based, vegan type diets gaining more and more popularity, the demand for more plant based alternatives rises. This includes non-dairy alternatives to milk, cheese, yogurt, sour cream and more. While you can find good deals on these products at your local supermarket sometimes, more often than not, healthier food alternatives come with a bigger price tag. One method of avoiding this hefty grocery bill, without sacrificing your health and moral standards, is to make your own non-dairy, milk alternatives at home. This is something that wont take up too much of your time, but will greatly impact your grocery budget and overall health and wellbeing!

Test tube studies suggest the leaf has anti-inflammatory actions. This is thought to be caused by nettle preventing the body from making inflammatory chemicals known as prostaglandins.1 Nettle’s root affects hormones and proteins that carry sex hormones (such as testosterone or estrogen) in the human body. This may explain why it helps benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).2 Although less frequently used alone like saw palmetto or pygeum, some limited clinical trials suggest benefit of nettle root extract for men with milder forms of BPH.3

Eating vegan means ditching cream, but it doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in crave-worthy meals. Alfredo sauce is typically made with a trifecta of butter, cream, and Parmesan, but our sauce thickens up with a little help from cooked cauliflower and spice cabinet staples like garlic powder and nutmeg. Nutritional yeast brings the cheesy flavor, and silky oat milk blends everything to the perfect texture. Need to make it gluten-free? Just swap in your favorite brown rice pasta for a bowl everyone can curl up with.

"There are many ways that trees are beneficial to both people and the environment: Trees are habitat for biodiversity; Trees create much of the planet’s oxygen; and, Trees help combat climate change – the list is nearly limitless, but we focus on the role trees play in agroforestry and in helping farming families improve their land quality and productivity."
Agroforestry integrates trees into agriculture and landscapes, a model that is particularly appropriate for resource poor farmers in developing countries. In addition to providing fruits, berries, and nuts, trees provide environmental services that are essential for families in the developing world: they can improve the fertility of degraded soils (through nitrogen fixation), prevent wind and soil erosion (thereby also contributing to improved fertility), increase water penetration into underground aquifers, and contribute to improvements in the growing environment. Trees help to lessen the wind that might affect crops, cool off ground temperatures, and trap moisture and nutrients in the soil so that food crops grow better in the improved microclimate.
