    by Paula Gallagher | July 20, 2016

    parsley-dillA new study published in the Journal of Natural Products has found that the combination of parsley and dill may help prevent cancer.

    Scientists from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), the N. D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry (RAS), the Institute of Developmental Biology (RAS) and the Institute of Cell Biophysics (RAS) found that when parsley and dill seeds were combined, a compound called glaziovianin A was produced. This compound along with its structural analogs was found to inhibit the growth of tumor cells. This compound already exists and is currently harvested from the leaves of the Brazilian tree Ateleia glazioviana Baill, but production is costly. Read more

  • Good Sleep As a Baby Affects Health Decades Later

    by Paula Gallagher | July 18, 2016

    baby-sleepingGood sleep is important for all of us, but interestingly, good sleep as a baby turns out to be more important than we knew previously. Researchers from the Penn State College of Medicine have found that establishing good sleep patterns for your baby will affect their health, even years later.

    They found that babies that get into a good bedtime routine are half as likely to be overweight at the age of 1 as other babies the same age. This finding is important because infants that gain a lot of weight in the first year of life are more likely to be obese later in life, putting them at risk of heart disease, diabetes and a host of other illnesses.

  • Great Whole Grains: Fuel for Optimal Health

    by Neal Barnard, MD, FACC | July 11, 2016

    coucousLow-carb diet headlines may be a thing of the past, thanks to new research that shows whole grains can help you lose weight and keep it off. In addition to promoting longevity, slashing the risk of heart disease, and stabilizing blood glucose, whole grains are packed with fiber, which fills you up, promotes a healthy gut, and enhances immune function.

    Ancient grains are also the secret to this year’s Rio-bound athletes, with everyone from Olympic beach volleyball star April Ross to tennis champ Serena Williams using steel-cut oats, brown rice, and quinoa to fuel all-star performance.

    Want to put the science into everyday practice? Try this nutrient-packed couscous dish, which you can serve as an entrée or pair with a leafy green salad. Read more

  • 4 Natural Remedies for Summer Travels

    by Paula Gallagher | July 5, 2016

    SUMMERTIME!!! Many of us are planning trips, and whether it be a staycation or traveling abroad, here are a few natural remedies for summer travel to help your vacation go smoothly.

    Probiotics: Studies have shown that probiotics (beneficial bacteria) may help prevent travelers' diarrhea in adults. Saccharomyces boulardii is a very good option for travelers as it does not require refrigeration. Aside from taking a probiotic, only drink water from sealed bottles, and watch out for swallowing pool water! Even the cleanest pool may have pathogens lurking. If you do succumb to diarrhea, stay hydrated and consume the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce and toast) while you recover.

    Fiber: One in four travelers experience constipation. Changes in eating and drinking habits, stress, and even reluctance to use public restrooms can cause some to bind up. A fiber supplement like guar guam or psyllium can help speed things along. Make sure to drink plenty of water with your fiber intake. A product like Clear Fiber can easily be mixed with water. If this doesn't help, try magnesium citrate. Read more
