Curcumin - New Study Substantiates Role in Amyloid Caused Memory Deficits

June 27, 2015

New research validates earlier studies that curcumin may play an effective role in improving memory function in amyloid affected brain function. Using a rodent model of Alzheimer's disease (AD), curcumin was shown to reduce levels of amyloid (a characteristic of Alzheimer's Disease) and ameliorate memory deficits. Chronic administration of curcumin improved cognitive functioning through the removal of amyloid and improved functioning of the memory center of the brain (the hippocampus). Curcumin affected two processes in the hippocampus related to memory formation: increasing the protein BDNF (brain derived neurotropic factor) and increasing ERK activation. ERK is an essential process involved with  hippocampus learning.   CURCUMIN  XTRA-MAX  YELLOW LONGEVITY YELLOW NATURALLY   REFERENCES: (1) Zhang L, et al. Curcumin Improves Amyloid β-Peptide (1-42) Induced Spatial...

Lutein and Alzheimer's Disease

June 20, 2015

Lutein, is a carotenoid which passes through the blood-brain-barrier, and accumulates in the retina of the eye. In the retina lutein is a powerful antioxidant and protective filter, which blocks damaging blue light from damaging the retina, and reverses oxidative damage to the eye. 1 However, lutein is now being shown to not only protect the eye but also the brain. Data from studies examining brain health and lutein, have shown a correlation between improved brain functioning and concentration of brain lutein. Researchers attribute this to the potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect of lutein. Furthermore, lutein concentrates in the brain at much higher levels than any other carotenoid. While lutein was also the only carotenoid consistently associated with cognitive functioning,...

Glucoraphanin - the broccoli Ingredient that protects against Air Pollutants

June 18, 2015

Glucoraphanin is found in broccoli, and is a converted in the body to sulforaphane. As a powerful Nrf2 activator, sulforaphane reduces oxidative stress, enhancing the removal of environmental toxins, increasing cellular antioxidant defense and contributing to healthy organ function. In highly polluted areas of China, glucoraphanin / sulforaphane was shown to enhance detoxification of airborne pollutants. Air pollutants (especially the fine particulates), from cars, factories and even smoke in the air, can irritate and inflame the lungs. Consequences of air pollution may include lung cancer and cardiopulmonary disease.  Study results of approximately 300 Chinese participants taking a broccoli sprout beverage, rich in glucoraphanin,  showed a rapid and sustained  urinary excretion of benzene. Benzene is a hydrocarbon, highly toxic and a carcinogenic component of air pollution....

Healthy Cardiovascular Function - Beyond Cholesterol

May 29, 2015

Cardiovascular health has been concerned with cholesterol. HDL being considered the "good" cholesterol while LDL being the "bad". However, additional factors must be taken into consideration when identifying risk factors. (1) LDL is classified as to particle size. Small dense LDL poses the greatest threat for the development of atherosclerosis. Large LDL (which are more buoyant), have minimal risk. Most LDL tests do not discern between the two types - specific tests for LDL must be specified. (2) Inflammation (as indicated by CRP - C-reactive protein) is considered the key factor in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Inflammation injures the arterial wall, which then experience an influx of cholesterol into the site of the injury. Oxidized cholesterol accumulates in the endothelium...
