      New Studies Examining Positive Connections Between Diet Rich in Wild Blueberries and Better Brain Health (amazon) (shopzilla)


      Portland, ME (PRWEB) May 10, 2013

      What started 10 years ago with a few studies looking into the impact of blueberry consumption and Alzheimers Disease has led to more research relating to Parkinsons Disease, cognitive performance in children, balance and hearing.

      During this time, researchers have learned a tremendous amount about the powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in blueberries. Now, they want to learn more and are launching new studies into the health benefits of the naturally occurring compounds found in blueberries polyphenols, flavonoids and anthocyanins.

      Previous studies have shown the potential for compounds in blueberries to impact memory and mood in older adults, as well as the function of compounds in blueberries to enable housekeeper cells in the brain to remove biochemical debris, which is believed to contribute to the decline of mental functioning with age.

      Below are some of the many brain-related studies currently underway looking into how compounds in blueberries can help improve brain health and protect against other diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses.

      Parkinsons Disease

      Parkinsons Disease is a degenerative disease that affects the area of the brain that controls movement, and researchers at Purdue University and North Carolina State University are looking for ways polyphenol compounds in Wild Blueberries may slow or help prevent Parkinsons Disease.

      Hundreds of thousands of people are impacted by Parkinsons Disease in the U.S. alone. The potential positive impact of discovering a link between compounds in Wild Blueberries and Parkinsons is huge, noted Mary Ann Lila, Director of the Plants for Human Health Institute at North Carolina State and a leading researcher in this area.

              Ageless Male Review – Unbiased Trial Results and Verdict Now Featured by NetNews (amazon) (shopzilla)


              San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2013

              Whether caused by stress, poor diet, illness or lifestyle factors, hundreds of things affect the wellbeing of men all over America every day. Factors that affects performance at work, performance in the gym and performance in the bedroom can all have serious repercussions; its at times like these that men everywhere can seek an extra boost with all-natural ingredients.

              Ageless Male is a supplement that uses herbal ingredients and is gathering a growing fan base, through its use of clinically-tested remedies that contribute to increasing overall male performance. It has been endorsed by Dr. Darren Clair, a renowned physician in the field of anti-aging, who feels it a smart and healthy choice for any man who wants to improve his life. Presenting you with an affordable chance to try Ageless Male with no risk and decide for yourself whether this product works, the manufacturer has launched a limited time risk-free promotional discount as a part of their marketing campaign.

              I wanted to see whether it would deliver the male performance it professes to return, as the official Ageless Male website claims. The reviews of Ageless Male on the internet were mixed, so I wanted to see for myself whether it could bring back the dominance I used to feel 10-15 years prior. Testing the efficiency of this male supplement, Product Analyst Bradley Duran undertook the trial and released a detailed consumer review of the Ageless Male supplement, to report whether it increased his testosterone levels and overall male performance, or left him wasting his time and money.

              The Ageless Male supplement promises to bring you back to your better state, giving you that helping hand that we all need sometimes in the office, gym or bedroom, states Product Analyst, Bradley Duran. While its no miracle cure for stress or lack of healthy nutrition, it can certainly help us on our way while we work on fixing the bigger culprits.

              The key testosterone-boosting ingredient in Ageless Male is Testofen, a natural and clinically-tested derivative from aphrodisiac and thinking aid fenugreek, along with mood enhancing vitamin B6, and saw palmetto, a time-tested stimulant first discovered by the Mayans.

              Duran trialed Ageless Male for a period of 4 weeks, and reported results starting at 10 days. Recorded in his user review of this male supplement are the timescales over which Duran noticed the benefits, and detailed reviews of the changes. I added 10 pounds to my bench-pressing personal best, and 15 pounds to my leg squats. I hadnt done this in years, stated Duran. The extra testosterone fires me up, I feel vigorous and, in general, more me; younger and revitalized.

              However, Duran advised his readers to exercise the same caution with Ageless Male that they would with any herbal supplement, particularly one related to hormone levels. Does Ageless Male work? It did for me. However it is not suited for everyone. But I am glad I gave Ageless Male a try; and its 100% risk-free money back guarantee is in place to fall back on just in case it doesn’t personally work for you, states Duran.

              Overall, Durans Ageless Male verdict is positive. I had solid results and will definitely continue with this supplement. I am able to work out harder in the gym and have more energy in the bedroom, not to mention the additional lifestyle benefits of sharper mental focus and increased concentration. However in his extensive review, he details both the pros and the cons. To read the full review, please scroll down below.

              Labeled as a good overall male supplement by MensHealthWire.com, the product is available via the official manufacturers site. Duran advises that consumers take necessary precautions when searching for Ageless Male online, By ordering from the official website location, you are assured of the genuine article, the product warranty, and the 30-day money back satisfaction guarantee. There are other websites to buy Ageless Male, but you risk not being covered by any of the official guarantees, or worse, you could receive a counterfeit product.

              To learn more about Ageless Male, or to take advantage of the limited time risk-free promotional discount please visit the Official Website by clicking here. Duran concluded, I would advise men who want to get back to their younger performance levels to give Ageless Male a try. With the manufacturers 100% no-risk 30 day money-back guarantee if youre not completely satisfied, you have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

                Yes, it is a proprietary herbal extract of a variety of plants that have high levels of waxy material on their surface such as olive tree leaves and magnolia leaves.

                Founder Jay says, “The website stands out among other migraine sites by providing consumers valuable information on migraine relief and makes ordering Metadrin very easy.”

                  Dr. Meg Qayum Leads Prediabetes Treatment Center in Houston (amazon) (shopzilla)


                  Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 07, 2013

                  PreDiabetes Centers, the nationwide leader in customized prediabetes treatment, today announced the opening of a new location in Houston and the appointment of Dr. Meg Qayum to lead the treatment center. Dr. Qayum is a board-certified physician with many years of experience in treating chronic disease. As a prediabetes physician, she will direct medical care for patients enrolled in the Companys 12-month comprehensive treatment program.

                  Dr. Qayum specializes in integrative and functional medicine. She received her medical degree and residency training from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans. She is a member of the Fellowship in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, the Institute for Functional Medicine, and the American College for Advancement in Medicine. Dr. Qayum served as the Wellness Director of Divinity Med Spa & Wellness where she used a combination of bioidentical hormone therapy and customized nutrition and fitness therapy to treat people with hormone imbalance conditions, including weight gain, loss of energy, low libido, stress and depression.

                  She will meet with clients at the PreDiabetes Center of North Houston at 13215 Dotson Road, Suite 340.

                  Dr. Qayum is excited about incorporating a multi-faceted approach to prediabetes care. This is the first program that looks at all contributing factors of the disease, she said, noting that the program uses continuous biomarker tests to ensure that individual markers of health are improving in conjunction with treatment.

                  Dr. Qayum says that people with prediabetes need targeted medical treatment in order to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes.

                  You cant treat a chronic disease on your own. [Prediabetics] need a team approach to help guide them through [treatment], said Dr. Qayum.

                  She notes that even if a person never progress to diabetes, he or she still has harmful conditions occurring in the body, such as inflammation, high blood pressure or abnormal cholesterol levels, that can lead to long-term health problems. A comprehensive prediabetes treatment plan targets these underlying imbalances and can help reverse their devastating effects.

                  Dr. Qayum said that many factors contribute to a prediabetes diagnosis, but nutrition, in particular, is a serious problem.

                  People who are in their 30s and 40s were raised in a generation when soft drinks werent considered bad, says Dr. Qayum.

                  Its now known that highly processed food and beverages can spike blood sugar, raise blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and lead to a host of diseases, including obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

                  Still, many people find it difficult to change their dietary habitsand when combined with other risk factors, a persons system can become overwhelmed, she said.

People with prediabetes are likely to develop type 2 diabetes, a condition that can damage multiple organ systems and increase risk for heart disease, stroke, kidney damage and nerve damage.

Treatment at the Center is based on physician-directed care and lifestyle intervention tailored for each client. The company offers a complimentary biomarker-based blood screening that can detect prediabetes, and also continuing biomarker tests throughout the 12-month personalized program to monitor specific processes in the body associated with prediabetic conditions.
