Bel Marra Health Reports on Recent Research Revealing Prolonged Life Using Bile (amazon) (shopzilla)


Toronto, ON (PRWEB) August 15, 2013

Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, reports on a recent study revealing a slowed aging process with bile.

As Bel Marra Health reports in its article, (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/anti-aging/the-secret-to-extending-your-lifespan-bile) humans have constantly been searching for a way to increase longevity and our quality of life. As science and technology becomes more advanced, scientists are beginning to discover new ways for people achieve better health and live longer. A recent study conducted by Vladimir Titorenko, Research Chair in Genomics at Concordia University, has found an unexpected substance that may increase human lifespan bile.

Vladimir Titorenko and his team tested over 19,000 different small molecules to determine if they were able to increase the average lifespan of yeast. During the study they noted that LCA (Lithocholic Acid), an acid found in bile, had a drastic effect on the way that the yeast aged. This positive outcome showcased the potential for extending the longevity of a living organism.

Lithocholic acid, one of the main acids found in bile, exhibited many features that would suggest it was the main reason that the yeast was able to live longer. The LCA interacted with two different aspects of the yeast. The first interaction was automatic and it occurred regardless of the amount of calories found in the yeast. As for the second reaction, it showed calorie-restriction due to stressor proteins. With the combination of these two interactions, the aging process of the yeast drastically slowed.

The recent findings gave scientists a new insight into prolonged life. With the information gathered from the study, Titorenko has explained that the next step is to determine whether bile can affect other species. There has been past evidence of bile being beneficial to certain species, such as rodents. In mice, bile assists with pancreatic functions and liver functions. The mice that have bile have been known to experience good health and longevity. With that being said, further research needs to be conducted to prove the benefits of bile in humans.

With the characteristics showcased in the yeast study, scientists believe that the LCA found in bile can greatly assist with some of the most common diseases known to humans. Diabetes, metabolic issues, and obesity may have the opportunity to be treated with the assistance of LCA. Considering that LCA helps to slow down the aging process and all of the aforementioned health issues, this discovery could be quite advantageous for the majority of the population to live longer and in good health.

Every person in the world contemplates methods that they can use to help themselves live longer. Whether they are suffering from a difficult disease such as diabetes, or even if they are casually curious, the question still remains: what can be done to live a longer life? The recent finding from Titorenkos study puts the science community closer to answering that question. With the anti-aging effects experienced from LCA, people may soon be living longer, healthier lives.

    Bel Marra Health Reports on a New Study Revealing Positive Health Benefits of Nicotine (amazon) (shopzilla)


    Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 28, 2013

    Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, reports on a new study that found that foods that naturally produce nicotine may decrease the risk of Parkinsons disease.

    As Bel Marra Health reports in its article, (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/brain-function/can-nicotine-prevent-parkinsons-disease/), fierce anti-smoking campaigns have been sweeping across North America in the past twenty years. As a result, many people are aware of the harmful effects of tobacco and nicotine. However, a new study has recently shown that nicotine could have some positive effects on our health as well.

    Nicotine is a chemical produced in the roots and leaves of plants in the nightshade family (such as eggplants, potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, cauliflower, etc), acting as a natural insecticide to protect the plants from scavenging insects. In humans, nicotine acts a stimulant and an addiction-forming chemical in tobacco. “Nicotine addiction has historically been one of the hardest addictions to break,” says the American Heart Association, and is blamed for mass increases of cardiovascular disease, strokes and cancer.

    However, while smoking nicotine cigarettes has definitely been established as something negative to good health, a study recently published in the Annuals of Neurology has shown that perhaps we should have been eating it instead. The research found that eating foods from nicotine-producing plants (known as Solanceae) could lend significant protection against developing debilitating diseases such as Parkinsons disease.

    Parkinsons disease is a neurodegenerative brain disorder that slowly progresses in most individuals, resulting from a loss of brain cells that produce dopamine. While there are many symptoms of Parkinsons disease, there are four main motor symptoms associated with the disease, including: shaking (tremor) at rest, slow movement (bradykinesia), stiffness of the trunk, upper and/or lower limbs, and trouble with balance (postural instability).

    Parkinsons disease is not fatal; however, major complicated arise from this disease, and sufferers find it difficult to perform regular, every-day activities. At the present time, there is no cure for Parkinsons disease. In the meantime, researchers continue to look for ways of managing symptoms, as well as preventative strategies that can protect people from developing this debilitating disease.

    Previous research has already shown promise regarding the association between tobacco and reduced incidences of Parkinsons disease. However, these studies were not able to pinpoint whether this relationship is due to actual nicotine, or whether it is due to another tobacco component. The newest study set out to discover the specific effects of nicotine containing foods, such as peppers, tomatoes and potatoes, on the development of Parkinsons disease.

    Susan Searless Nielson, PhD., and her colleagues looked at 490 newly diagnosed patients with Parkinsons disease and 644 neurologically healthy individuals. The participants were given questionnaires that investigated their self-reported consumption of peppers, tomatoes, tomato juice, and potatoes during adulthood. Other factors such as consumption of other vegetables, age, sex, race, tobacco use and caffeine use were also controlled for.

    The results showed that individuals who consumed a lot of nicotine containing foods had a significantly lower risk of developing Parkinsons disease. The same relationship was not seen when all vegetable sources were combined. The relationship was even more significant when looking at how pepper consumption affected Parkinsons disease.

    It’s also interesting to note that the researchers found that the protective effects of nicotine foods were seen mainly in men and women who had little or no history of smoking.

    While more research is needed to understand the implications from this study more fully, it opens up hopeful doors towards future dietary and natural preventative measures that can be developed in the face of this debilitating disease.

      Bel Marra Health Reports on Recent Research: Dietary Intake of Calcium Should Be Reviewed Again After Discussions of Heightened Heart Attack Risk. (amazon) (shopzilla)


      Toronto, ON (PRWEB) January 18, 2013

      Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on recent research that outlines how the dietary intake of calcium should be reviewed again due to the potential of side effects.

      As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/anti-aging/strontium-and-why-your-calcium-information-is-wrong/), while calcium supplements are commonly prescribed to post-menopausal women at risk of osteoporosis, possible side effects do exist when taking this supplement.

      As the Bel Marra Health article reads, the role of calcium has been given much attention in the past few decades, resulting in the establishment of specific guidelines for its daily requirement. For instance, in the United States, the recommended calcium intake is 1,000 milligrams each day for younger adults, whereas in Europe, 800 mg per day is the suggested daily requirement for women within the age range of 50 to 65 years of age.

      According to a recent medical report, the use of calcium supplements should be again reviewed because there is a possibility that its administration may result in calcium side effects. Based on the findings of the study published in Clinical Cases in Mineral and Bone Metabolism, calcium side effects may include a higher risk of heart attack, as well as an increased susceptibility for stroke or sudden death. These findings were summarized from 26 clinical trials involving adults who were taking 1,000 milligrams of calcium per day.

      The medical report also described the findings of another study involving approximately 36,282 postmenopausal women who were taking 1,000 milligrams of calcium and 400 IU of vitamin D per day. In this study, a higher risk for heart attack was associated with the intake of calcium supplements in combination with vitamin D. To determine whether these calcium side effects were due to the use of two dietary supplements, the study examined the incidence of heart attack in a group that was given only vitamin D or calcium. Interestingly, the study showed that taking calcium by itself was associated with a higher risk of heart attack.

      Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione says, The findings of the medical report have emphasized the need to assess the use of calcium as a preventive measure against osteoporosis among the elderly. Although the use of calcium may lower the risk of hip fractures and other bone injuries among older adults, it is also important to consider other calcium side effects that may also develop at a later time.

      The report also pointed out that the use of calcium is now widespread across the world and this is simply based on earlier knowledge that this mineral helps in strengthening bones and teeth. However, there is also a need to examine its interactions with other components of the body, including the activities of specific tissues and cells. The report thus presented the question of whether changes in dietary patterns are sufficient in improving the amount of calcium that enters the body.

      The findings of this recent medical report have expressed the need to do further research on the benefits and risks of taking calcium pills on a daily basis.

        Bel Marra Health Reports on a New Study Indicating Reduced Hot Flashes While on the Mediterranean Diet (amazon) (shopzilla)


        Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 10, 2013

        Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, reports a new study explaining the benefits of the Mediterranean Diet in reducing the likelihood of hot flashes.

        As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/anti-aging/a-mediterranean-diet-that-reduces-hot-flashes/) people living along the Mediterranean coast have consumed diets rich in plant based foods without giving it much thought. Over the last decade, countless studies have shown that following a Mediterranean diet has the potential to protect us against the development of heart disease, certain cancers, particular neurological problems, diabetes, and obesity. In a recent study, Australian researchers now believe it can also help with hot flashes.

        A hot flash is a short sensation of heat that can come at anytime during the menopause stage in a womans life. It can include sweats and even be accompanied by a red, flushed looking face. Some women experience a more rapid heart rate followed by chills. Night sweats can occur with hot flashes as well and often interfere with sleep. It can be a difficult and frustrating time in a womans life.

        Mediterranean diets focus mainly on plant based foods like fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts. Butter is normally replaced with healthier fats such as olive oil. Very little salt is used to flavor food, instead a mix of spices are added. Red meat is kept to a minimum; however, fish and lean poultry are consumed two or three times a week.

        Fruits and vegetables are known to be packed full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. These fresh foods included in Mediterranean diets have also been associated with a lower level of bad cholesterol; the type of cholesterol that is likely to build up deposits in arteries.

        A recent study involving six thousand women who were monitored over nine years, showed the link between a Mediterranean diet and reduced occurrences of hot flashes. Those who closely followed the Mediterranean diet were 20 percent less likely to report hot flashes. Women who were in menopause and ate high-fat diets were 23 percent more likely to experience hot flashes and night sweats.

        The study conducted in Australia through the University of Queensland could not specify exactly which foods prevent the flashes, but the researchers say that it is possible that low-fat diets help stabilize estrogen thus easing hot flashes. Eating a Mediterranean diet could also place blood sugar within a normal range, keeping symptoms of menopause to a minimum.

        The authors of the study admit that not enough research has been done to start offering recommendations to women with menopause; however, they do remind people that a lot of research shows the Mediterranean-style diet has many health benefits. They say for this reason, adopting it at any point in life is a good idea.

        While research continues in the connections between food and flashes, there are other steps women can take to lessen the burden. It may not be possible to completely eliminate hot flashes during menopause, but there are triggers that can cause them to occur more frequently. Doctors recommend avoiding the following during menopause:

          Bel Marra Health Reports on New Research Revealing Food Elements to Reduce Cellulite (amazon) (shopzilla)


          Toronto, ON (PRWEB) June 08, 2013

          Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, reports on a new study revealing a healthy diet containing certain elements can help to reduce cellulite.

          As Bel Marra Health reports in its article, (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/anti-aging/what-can-get-rid-of-that-nasty-cellulite) 80 percent of women in the western world have cellulite and many are desperate to find ways to get rid of it. There are all sorts of potions and lotions on the market that claim to help people get rid of those stubborn dimples on their thighs and buttocks. Scientists argue that there really is no quick fix. In fact, more and more experts believe that a balanced lifestyle is the best way to keep cellulite under control.

          Cellulite is a dimpling or cottage cheese effect that skin displays due to the stretching of connective tissues around fat deposits. While many people believe that cellulite is associated with being overweight, research shows that even thin people can have it.

          Scientists continue to study the safest and most cost-effective ways to treat cellulite. Interestingly, in recent years scientists have uncovered what they believe is a link between a nutritious diet and cellulite scores to help eliminate that bothersome appearance.

          A study published in the U.S National Library of Medicine found that rubbing a spermine-trapping molecule on the thigh could help lower thigh cellulite scores. Spermine is found in a wide range of organism and tissues. It was first found in human semen, but most recently discovered in food. Ground meat, lunch meat, green peas, and cheddar cheese are good sources of food to add into a diet.

          This isnt the only evidence that seems to connect diet with cellulite. An Italian study shows that a hormone known as adiponectin appears to act as protection against cellulite in the buttocks. The authors say if you want to keep levels of this hormone from dropping, the best approach is to maintain a good diet; a diet free of fried or fatty foods. Studies have demonstrated that switching to a vegetarian diet can increase adiponectin levels by as much as 19 percent.

          Some medical professionals believe a diet rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties is a good way to prevent cellulite. Antioxidants prevent free radicals from weakening connective tissues that often lead to lumps and bumps in the skin. Foods that are high in antioxidants include blueberries, beans, and cranberries.

          Doctor Howard Murad is one of the worlds leading experts on skin health. He recommends antioxidants to maximize skin health, including foods that contain vitamins A, C and E. He also suggests polyphenols and bioflavonoids. He calls them skin-nourishing. These nutrients can be found in leafy green vegetables, as well as fruits like oranges, pomegranates, and mangoes.

          Murad and his supporters believe that dehydration can increase the appearance of cellulite. Staying hydrated and consuming foods rich in Omega-3, instead of fatty foods, can diminish the appearance of dimples. These meals might include fish, eggs, or omega-3 enriched yogurt.

          While there is no magic cure for cellulite, recent research seems to suggest that a healthy diet and exercise can help firm up the skin and a smooth its appearance.

            Bel Marra Health Reports on a New Study Revealing a New Approach to Reverse Aging (amazon) (shopzilla)


            Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 18, 2013

            Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, reports a new study that has found a new connection in the brain that might reverse physiological and cognitive components of aging in humans.

            As Bel Marra Health reports in its article, (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/anti-aging/hormonally-reversing-the-aging-process) people have been unsuccessfully trying to defy the aging process for decades. But researchers now believe that the hypothalamus may hold the key to everlasting youth. Researchers from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine at the University of Yeshiva, found that they hypothalamus controls the aging process in mice. Therefore what the researchers discovered could possibly be true in the human population as well.

            The report was published in Nature and may lead to the development of new treatment options to defend against diseases associated with aging thus helping people to live longer, healthier lives.

            While the hypothalamus is a very small structure in the brain, it is an important structure that is responsible for a number of vital functions in the body. It produces hormones that control the sleep-wake cycle as well as body temperature, hunger, thirst, emotional response and sex drive.

            In addition to controlling these functions in the body, the hypothalamus is responsible for releasing hormones from many glands in the body, especially the pituitary gland.

            As aging occurs, changes occur to the inflammation levels in various body tissues. Inflammation is also a key characteristic in many diseases associated with aging, including metabolic syndrome, heart disease, neurological disease and several forms of cancer.

            Previous research conducted by Dongsheng Cai, M.D., Ph.D. and colleagues has shown that changes in the hypothalamus involving inflammation can contribute to metabolic syndrome. Due to the connection between inflammation and aging, and with inflammation and the hypothalamus, Dr. Cai and his colleagues were interested in how inflammation in the hypothalamus may be involved in the aging process.

            Inflammation involves a number of different molecules and a protein complex called NF-kB (nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells). This is at the center of the inflammation process. Because of the significant role that NF-kB plays in inflammation, Dr. Cai and colleagues focused on this protein complex for their current study.

            The researchers found that activating the NF-kB protein complex in mice dramatically accelerated the aging process. These results were based on physiological, cognitive and behavioral test factors, where decreases in cognitive and physiological abilities are associated with aging. Results showed that the mice had decreased muscle strength and size, decreased elasticity of skin and a decreased ability to learn new tasks. On the other hand, mice that had a NF-kB pathway blocked in their hypothalamus had slower aging rate and about a 20 percent increased lifespan.

            Recent research has possibly found new ways to fight against aging and the decline of brain function that often accompanies aging. Preventing the hypothalamus from creating inflammation by blocking the NF-kB pathway, and increasing neurogenesis with GnRH injections, are two possible strategies that might help people to live longer, healthier lives. This research brings hope to all of those individuals looking for timeless youth.

                Bel Marra Health Reports on New Research: A Natural Approach to Bone Health is Now Considered a Viable Option to OTC Medications (amazon) (shopzilla)


                Toronto, ON (PRWEB) April 07, 2013

                Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on new research outlining how a natural approach to bone health is now considered a viable option to over-the-counter medications.

                As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/anti-aging/benefits-to-a-natural-approach-to-bone-health/) two of the biggest bone health issues facing American adults are Osteoporosis and Infectious Arthritis. About 10 million people in the United States are currently suffering from osteoporosis, a bone disease that is known for leading to fractures in hips, wrists and even the spine.

                Infectious Arthritis, also referred to as Septic Arthritis, is an inflammation of one or more joints that is brought on by a bacterial, viral or fungal infection. It is estimated that around 20 thousand cases of infectious arthritis; characterized by debilitating joint pain, occur in the U.S each year. Add to this the fact that one in 5 Americans suffer from some other form of Arthritis and it seems like there are more people suffering from joint pain than not.

                To treat joint pain and inflammation doctors prescribe over-the-counter medications or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, especially in cases where the joint pain includes inflammation. For osteoporosis, Bisophophonates; a class of medication that slows bone breakdown is often used. Hormone- like medication is also recommended for women with the disease. While these drugs seem to help certain people, many medical professionals say it isnt enough.

                More doctors say good nutrition, along with supplementation and regular exercise are keys to better bone health. They suggest that lifestyle changes can both prevent and treat bone problems.

                One recent study that has received a lot of attention was conducted at the University of Illinois. It showed that adults who increased their intake of calcium and vitamin D increased their bone mineral density and significantly reduced their risk of hip fracture.

                As the Bel Marra Health article reads, the scientists said some prescription drugs help build bone in one area of the body and increase fractures in another section of the body. They added other medications build new bone on top of old bone, so your old bone may be thicker, but not necessarily structurally sound. It has been suggested by scientists that supplements and foods high in calcium and vitamin D are therefore good options for bone strength.

                Although the debate rages on, several studies demonstrate that alkaline diets are good for bone health. An alkaline diet is dominated by fruits and vegetables, as opposed to proteins and grains.

                Exercise is also considered a natural bone-building method. Research shows that regular exercise helps increase bone density. It also builds balance and flexibility to prevent falls. Even light exercise such as walking is beneficial. A study recently published in the Endocrine Societys Journal states that physical exercise in women who are premenopausal can significantly reduce sclerostin, which is known for slowing bone formation. It was determined that women who took part in more than 2 hours of exercise per week had much lower levels of serum sclerostin.

                  Bel Marra Health Reports on a New Study: Broccoli Seen to Show Promise in the Treatment of Osteoarthritis (amazon) (shopzilla)


                  Toronto, ON (PRWEB) March 21, 2013

                  Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on new research outlining how broccoli is showing promise in the treatment of osteoarthritis.

                  As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/anti-aging/broccoli-and-osteoarthritis-an-interesting-connection/) osteoarthritis, which is also referred to as degenerative joint disorder, is the most common type of arthritis and approximately 12 percent of the American population over the age of 25 suffers with it. Osteoarthritis is a disorder that affects joint health, and it leads to a degradation of joints and a loss of bone cartilage, particularly in the hands, feet, spine and hips.

                  The most common signs of osteoarthritis include pain and stiffness in the joints. Overtime, the joints become stiffer and it becomes harder to move, and this joint health disorder can eventually lead to debilitating disability.

                  Since there is no current cure for osteoarthritis, people who suffer with this type of arthritis are offered two options pain relief methods or joint replacement surgery. On the other hand, researchers believe that broccoli may help to reduce the risk for, and the symptoms of, osteoarthritis and studies are underway to determine whether or not broccoli may play a role in the treatment of osteoarthritis.

                  As the Bel Marra Health article reads, researchers at the University of East Anglia, began an investigation in 2010 to determine if consuming broccoli affects the risk and severity of osteoarthritis. They found that broccoli contains a compound called sulforaphane, which is a naturally occurring sulfur compound. Although sulforaphane is found in a variety of foods, including cauliflower, cabbage and kale, the richest source is broccoli sprouts.

                  Sulforaphane has strong antioxidant properties, which means that it helps to kill harmful free radicals in your body and it prevents free radicals from causing damage and death to your bodily cells.

                  There has been a lot of research on the health effects of sulforaphane, and it has been found to help reduce the risk of cancer, fight high blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, protect the heart, activate the immune system and protect the skin from sun damage. Although more research needs to be done, the prevention of osteoarthritis and reduction of its symptoms, may soon be added to the list of benefits that sulforaphane produces.

                  When you eat broccoli, it results in a high level of sulforaphane in your blood. This is beneficial because sulforaphane has been found to blocks the enzymes that cause the destruction of joint health and the development of osteoarthritis.

                  Despite this fact, researchers are still unsure of whether or not enough of the sulforaphane actually enters the joints from eating broccoli, in order to measurably reduce osteoarthritis risks and symptoms. Results of the University of East Anglia study have not yet been publicly revealed, but Science Daily states that sulforaphane may act to slow and/or prevent the development of osteoarthritis.

                  Regardless of what the study finds, the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of broccoli, make it beneficial for the health of your bones and joints. Broccoli also contains vitamin K which builds and strengthens bone cartilage, reduces pain-triggering inflammation in the joints and has been shown to lower the risk for osteoarthritis of the hands and knee

                    Bel Marra Health Reports on New Research: Plant Based Diets Could Prevent Up to 80 Percent of Symptomatic Disease (amazon) (shopzilla)


                    Toronto, ON (PRWEB) March 30, 2013

                    Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on new research outlining how following a plant based diet could prevent up to 80 percent of symptomatic disease.

                    As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/healthy-eating-2/the-best-anti-aging-foods-in-your-diets/) green vegetables are at the top of the list in terms of longevity. They are packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber, not to mention they are low in calories.

                    Kale, Spinach, Broccoli and Brussel Sprouts are examples of good greens. Although they are higher in calories, avocadoes are also considered an anti-aging food. Nutritionists say diets should include avocadoes because they are one of the most nutrient-dense foods. They are high in fiber and full of folate, potassium, vitamin E, and magnesium.

                    Dr. T Colin Campbell is a Nutritional Scientist and professor emeritus at Cornell University. He believes that plant-based diets can prevent 70 to 80 percent of existing, symptomatic disease. Campbell is the author of The China Study, one of the most comprehensive studies of nutrition ever written. He has said that cutting down on animal based protein will lead to better health and longevity. The doctor cites animal carcinogens as one of his arguments for limiting animal protein.

                    As the Bel Marra Health article reads, there is a lot of evidence to indicate that omega-3 fatty acids provide many health benefits. It has been associated with good cardiovascular health, the regulation of blood flow, good postnatal neurological development, the reduction of inflammation, and even the promotion of healthy skin.

                    While there arent any sugary snacks and salty foods on longevity lists, there are a lot of choices when it comes to following an anti-aging regiment.
