Reduced carbohydrate intake regulates blood sugar better in type 2 diabetics

Patients with type 2 diabetes improve their ability to regulate blood sugar levels if they eat food with a reduced carbohydrate content and an increased share of protein and fat. This is shown by a recent study conducted at Bispebjerg Hospital in collaboration with, among other partners, Aarhus University and the Department of Nutrition, Exercise … Read more

Vitamin B lowers effects of air pollution induced heart disease

B vitamins can mitigate the impact of fine particle pollution on cardiovascular disease, revealed by researchers at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. Healthy non-smokers who took vitamin B supplements nearly reversed any negative effects on their cardiovascular and immune systems. This is the first clinical trial to evaluate whether B vitamin supplements change … Read more

Biggest Loser winners regain the weight they lost

Most ‘Biggest Loser’ winners regain the weight they lost – and it reveals a disturbing truth.

The Biggest Loser, a reality TV show in which contestants compete to shed … Read more

Raspberries good for patients with heart disease, diabetes, obesity and Alzheimer’s

Components in red raspberries may have anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative and metabolic stabilizing activity, according to a comprehensive review of the available scientific literature. These properties shed light on the potential role of red raspberries in helping to reduce the risk of metabolically-based chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, obesity, and Alzheimer’s disease: all of which … Read more

Barley improves blood sugar levels & reduce appetite

Barley can rapidly improve people’s health by reducing blood sugar levels and risk for diabetes, revealed by researchers. The secret lies in the special mixture of dietary fibres found in barley, which can also help reduce people’s appetite and risk for cardiovascular disease. “It is surprising yet promising that choosing the right blend of dietary … Read more

Beetroot juice improves endurance and blood pressure in elderly

Scientists found that a daily dose of beetroot juice significantly improved exercise endurance and blood pressure in elderly patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF). Exercise intolerance – shortness of breath and fatigue with normal amounts of exertion — is the primary symptom of HFPEF and is due partly to non-cardiac factors that … Read more

Antioxidants may promote cancer spread

Researchers have made a discovery that suggests cancer cells benefit more from antioxidants than normal cells, raising concerns about the use of dietary antioxidants by patients with cancer.

Reducing dietary fat reduces body fat more

Restricting dietary fat led to body fat loss at a rate 68 percent higher than cutting the same number of carbohydrate calories when adults with obesity ate strictly controlled diets. Carb restriction lowered production of the fat-regulating hormone insulin and increased fat burning as expected, whereas fat restriction had no observed changes in insulin production … Read more

New Compound 14 may mimic exercise & help treat type 2 diabetes and obesity

Scientists from the University of Southampton have developed a molecule that acts as an exercise mimic, which could potentially help treat type 2 diabetes and obesity. The new molecule, called ‘compound 14’, inhibits the function of a cellular enzyme called ATIC, which is involved in metabolism, leading to the build-up of a molecule called ZMP … Read more
