Reports on Study Examining the Effects of Resveratrol on People with Mild to Moderate Alzheimers (amazon) (shopzilla)

Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 27, 2012

The Doctors Health Press, a publisher of various natural health newsletters, books and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, is reporting on a national clinical trial examining the effects of resveratrol on individuals with mild to moderate Alzheimers disease.

As reported in Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin on Monday, May 24, 2012 ( ), resveratrol is found in red grapes, red grape juice, red wine, chocolate, tomatoes, and peanuts. Some studies suggest that resveratrol may prevent diabetes, act as a natural cancer fighter, ward off heart disease, and prevent memory loss. But, as of yet, there is no large definitive study of its effects in humans.

The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article reports that most resveratrol studies showing any health benefits have been conducted in animal models, such as mice. With the new study, theyll find out if daily doses of pure resveratrol could delay or alter memory deterioration and daily functioning in people with Alzheimer’s. They may also find out if resveratrol improves glucose and insulin metabolism in older individuals.

It should be noted that resveratrol is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of Alzheimer’s. It is not known if resveratrol can change the course of the disease.

The study will test resveratrol against placebo and no patients or staff members will know who has which pill. This is called “double-blind” and placebo-controlled. It will help ensure a reliable result, the gold standard for clinical studies.

According to the Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article, more than 5.3 million people in the U.S. have Alzheimer’s and, every 70 seconds, another person develops this disease. The resveratrol study will be conducted at 26 U.S. academic institutions that are affiliated with the Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study. The participants will be asked to abstain from eating or drinking large quantities of foods or beverages that contain resveratrol, and abstain from taking dietary supplements containing resveratrol. This study will last 12 months.

    Omega XL Reports New Independent Study: Omega-3s Improve Acne Severity In Individuals With Moderate To Severe Acne (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) December 17, 2012

    Researchers from California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, California, recently looked at the effects of omega-3 fatty acids, such as found in [Omega XL, on healthy males ages 1840 with mild to severe acne (acne vulgaris). The objective of the study was to detect the isolated effects of supplemental omega-3 fatty acids on the severity of inflammatory acne in young healthy males.

    Statistical data suggests that the overall acne occurrence rate appears to be rising in Westernized nations, while acne is a rare condition in non-Westernized societies with higher ratios of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. Scientists believe that the lower omega-3 content of the western diet is an important dietary cause of inflammation. Despite demonstrating remarkable anti-inflammatory properties in the scientific literature, very few human studies have examined the clinical effects of supplemental omega-3 fatty acids on reducing inflammation in acne patients.

    To see if omega-3 supplementation could improve the severity of inflammatory acne, the Cal State researchers gave participants three omega-3 capsules daily for 12 weeks that contained a total of 930 mg EPA, 720 mg DHA, and 174 mg DPA per 3 capsules. Participants continued their usual diets, but were instructed to not consume large amounts of additional omega-3 rich foods.

    At the end of 12 weeks, the researchers noted some promising evidence that omega-3 supplementation is associated with an improvement in overall acne severity, especially for individuals with moderate and severe acne.

    [Omega XL is one of only two Omega-3 supplements sold in the world that contains the patented stabilized marine lipid extract PCSO-524 derived only from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel, with 30 healthy fatty acids including DHA and EPA. Sold in other parts of the world under its sister brand name Lyprinol, Omega XL is manufactured exclusively by Great HealthWorks Inc., and is the most widely available omega-3 fish oil supplement containing the potent PCSO-524 marine lipid extract.
