Berries benefits the brain

Strong scientific evidence exists that eating blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and other berry fruits has beneficial effects on the brain and may help prevent age-related memory loss and other changes, scientists report. Their new article on the value of eating berry fruits appears in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

In the article, Barbara Shukitt-Hale, Ph.D., and Marshall G. Miller point out that longer lifespans are raising concerns about the human toll and health care costs of treating Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of mental decline. They explain that recent research increasingly shows that eating berry fruits can benefit the aging brain. To analyze the strength of the evidence about berry fruits, they extensively reviewed cellular, animal and human studies on the topic.

Their review concluded that berry fruits help the brain stay healthy in several ways. Berry fruits contain high levels of antioxidants, compounds that protect cells from damage by harmful free radicals. The two also report that berry fruits change the way neurons in the brain communicate. These changes in signaling can prevent inflammation in the brain that contribute to neuronal damage and improve both motor control and cognition. They suggest that further research will show whether these benefits are a result of individual compounds shared between berry fruits or whether the unique combinations of chemicals in each berry fruit simply have similar effects.

Potassium in fruit bananas

A new study from St. George's Medical School in London, published in the April 2005 issue of Hypertension, compared the blood-pressure-lowering effects of potassium chloride against the effects of potassium citrate. The results of this study showed that potassium citrate has the same blood-pressure-lowering effect as potassium chloride, which has been proven in the past to lower blood pressure. Potassium chloride, however, must be taken as a dietary supplement, whereas potassium citrate is found naturally in many foods.

The study tested the effects of potassium chloride and potassium citrate on 14 adults with an average starting blood pressure of 151/93, placing them in the category of Stage 1 hypertension. The volunteers were randomly split into two groups; one group was given potassium chloride daily for one week, while the other received potassium citrate. Then, following a one week break, the treatment groups were crossed over and received the opposite treatment for an additional week. While taking potassium chloride, volunteers had an average blood pressure of 140/88, and while on potassium citrate, it averaged at 138/88. The difference between the effects of the two types of potassium was not significant, meaning each had similarly beneficial effects on hypertension. "These results support other evidence for an increase in potassium intake and indicate that potassium does not need to be given in the form of chloride to lower blood pressure," write the researchers in their report. "Increasing the consumption of food high in #potassium is likely to have the same effect on #bloodpressure as potassium chloride." Rather than investing in a new dietary supplement, lowering your blood pressure may be as easy as watching what you eat.


Ugly by nature fluoride free toothpaste

A study published this year in Toxicology in Industrial Health demonstrated that exposure to high levels of fluoride can be harmful to the spatial learning and memory. Early studies have linked fluoride exposure to reduced IQ, increased risk for rare bone cancer in boys, and #dental and skeletal fluorosis.

The study showed that rats exposed to drinking water with 100 ppm of fluoride exhibited impairment in the spatial learning and memory deficits and those exposed to the same level of fluoride but also fed vitamin C and Ginkgo biloba in a dose of 100 mg/kg did not experience as much harmful effects of fluoride.

The study also showed that exposure to 0.5 ppm of fluoride in drinking water, which is the limit recommended by the World Health Organization, did not cause the adverse effects.
In the U.S., fluoridated drinking water contains 1.0 ppm of fluoride. This study did not test the effect of #fluoride at this level. Keep in mind that tooth pastes, mouth washes, tea and sea fish contain high levels of fluoride.

The study concluded that "chronic exposure to high levels of fluoride causes severe impairment in the spatial learning and #memory, these deficits can be ameliorated with the vitamin C and G. biloba." (David Liu)

Ugly by nature toothpaste

Over 60 Texas water systems failed to warn consumers about the presence of dangerous levels of arsenic in the water. And, now, a FAN (Fluoride Action Network) investigation has documented a similarly widespread failure to warn consumers about the presence of toxic levels of fluoride.

FAN has discovered that children in Texas have been exposed to dangerous levels of fluoride in their drinking water, due to a systematic failure by local, state, and federal officials to enforce the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Many communities in Texas have long been plagued with elevated naturally occurring levels of fluoride in their drinking water, and the problem appears to be getting worse. The most obvious and visible consequence of consuming water with elevated fluoride is a condition called dental fluorosis, which is a staining and pitting of the tooth enamel caused by fluoride’s interference with the tooth forming cells. In its advanced forms, fluorosis can cause disfiguring brown and black staining, as well as pitting and crumbling of the enamel. This damage to the tooth’s enamel is permanent, and can be acutely embarrassing to the children who suffer from it, placing them at higher risk for behavioral disorders.

Dental fluorosis is the most obvious effect of fluoride exposure; but it is not the only risk. In fact, the same fluoride level in water that causes severe forms of dental fluorosis (>2 mg/L) has been repeatedly linked to other adverse effects, including reduced IQ scores, kidney damage, osteoarthritis, bone fragility, and thyroid hormone impairment.

Vegan protein from seeds ugly by nature

Pumpkin seeds are incredibly high in iron and magnesium, and contain a larger amount of protein than chia or flax per ounce, boasting a total of 5 grams per ounce. They even contain high amounts of anxiety-relieving trytophan, an essential amino acid, which helps improve serotonin levels.

Hemp seeds are known as one of the top sources of complete vegan protein, 13 grams of protein per 3 tablespoons.
They’re also rich in iron, chlorophyll, magnesium, Vitamin E, and B vitamins.

Chia seeds provide both calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium in incredibly in high amounts and also high amounts of water and fiber that help your body absorb these nutrients much easier. They have 5 grams of protein per two tablespoons.

Sunflowerseeds have 6 grams of protein in two tablespoons and 7 percent of your daily iron requirements. They also contain a large amount of magnesium and fiber. Sunflower seeds are also pretty easy to digest.

Tahini is a popular condiment made from the almighty sesame seed. It’s packed with amino acids and with calcium, not to mention iron, manganese, copper and magnesium. Like other seeds, they provide a large amount of zinc, which boosts your immune system health and their fiber will help keep you full. Per 1/4 cup, these seeds provide 35 percent of your daily calcium needs, which is actually more than a serving of milk.

Mango skin inhibits human fat cell growth ugly by nature

UQ SCIENTISTS have discovered that two common mango varieties contain #natural compounds that may help to fight flab.

Obesity is associated with many chronic conditions such as diabetes, coronary heart disease and several cancers, including those of the breast and colon.

In two of three mango varieties examined in the study, however, it was the mango peel that demonstrated the biggest fat-reducing potential … the bit that most people throw away.

The detailed analysis of three mango varieties was part of a collaborative research project between the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI) and UQ School of Pharmacy as part of an Australian Research Council Linkage grant with the Queensland Government.

Professor Mike Gidley, who heads QAAFI’s Centre for Nutrition and Food Sciences, said it was not unusual for the outer skin of a fruit to have quite a different chemical composition to the flesh. “We know mangoes have many excellent #nutritional properties, but more work needs to done to understand the complex natural compounds found in these and other fruits,” he said. “This research reminds us that we should be looking at the whole fruit when considering how to take advantage of natural goodness. “Detailed chemical analysis of the skin and flesh is extremely valuable for #mango growers and processors, who are always looking for new ways to value-add their fruit.” In laboratory models, the study found that the peel from “Irwin” and “Nam Doc Mai” mangoes contained high concentrations of bioactives that inhibit development of human fat cells.

Professor Greg Monteith from the UQ School of Pharmacy said there were probably many reasons for this characteristic. “A complex interplay of bioactive compounds unique to each peel extract is likely responsible for the difference, rather than just a single component,” he said.
