According to a recent study, our gut problems make it easy for a very harmful neurotoxin BF-LPS to enter the brain and contribute to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s.
Researchers of a recent observational study found that a bioactive compound, called pelargonidin, which is the most abundant in strawberries, may lead to less formation of tau tangles in the brain.
Just in case you don’t know: antimicrobial resistance is a situation when bacteria, viruses, and fungi become resistant to antibiotics, so that antibiotics won’t help fighting infectious diseases anymore. This resistance is mostly based in the gut, where the microbes carry genetically encoded ways to survive contact with antibiotics. So can we do something to […]
It’s not news any more that our brain (the central nervous system) and our gut (the enteric nervous system) are connected. Just think about those migraine attacks that are caused by some food sensitivities, or about headaches and even black-outs after too much alcohol. And these are only 2 of numerous other examples that show […]
We know that dietary fiber is good for our health. Among others, it nourishes our healthy gut bacteria, lowers ‘bad’ cholesterol, maintains a good bowel health and reduces risk of certain cancers. The question is: are all different types of fiber equally good for our health?
Inflammation is one of the major contributors to our health problems and to accelerated aging. The good news is that we can do something about it, namely a.o. add some extra fiber to our diet. The question is whether the fiber source matters in this situation?
According to a recent study, vitamin K might help reduce and even prevent age-related cognitive decline, leading to various forms of dementia.
These are the conclusions of a recent study.
According to a recent study, the visual ultrasound of the heart (echocardiography) can reveal a higher risk of developing dementia. The study showed that the abnormal left atrial function and size (reservoir strain, conduit strain, and contractile strain), a condition known as atrial myopathy, increases risk of dementia, independently of atrial fibrillation. It is typically […]
B3 has different forms, where nicotinamide riboside (NR) is the most important one in case of Parkinson’s. It serves as a raw material for the essential metabolic factor NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), which is vital to various cellular processes, including energy metabolism, DNA damage repair, control of gene expression and stress resistance of our brain […]
