Can This Smell Test Predict If You’ll Get Alzheimer’s?

In All Health Watch, Alzheimer's and Memory, Anti-Aging, Cognitive Health, Dementia, Featured Article, Nootropics and Brain Support by INH Research0 Comments

Can a simple smell test reveal if you’ll get Alzheimer’s?

Scientists believe that the brain changes behind Alzheimer’s disease start at least 10 years before memory problems set in. But right now there is no easy-to-administer diagnostic test to detect early signs of the brain-wasting illness.

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston say they may have discovered a noninvasive way to predict if you’ll get Alzheimer’s. It turns out that the sense of smell may be among the first things to deteriorate in Alzheimer’s patients.

Hate Having a Colonoscopy? Harvard Study Shows You Might Be Able to Skip It

The colonoscopy may be the most-hated medical screening.

The prep is miserable. You have to fast the day before. And you have to take a laxative. This means hours of stomach cramping…and multiple emergency trips to the bathroom.

Tomato Compounds Fight Heart Disease, Study Shows

Natural compounds in tomatoes lower the most dangerous form of cholesterol, a new study shows.

Most of us know that HDL is “good” cholesterol and LDL is “bad.” But there’s a type of cholesterol that is even worse than LDL. It’s oxidized LDL.

Oxidation of LDL cholesterol occurs when regular LDL particles in your body react with free radicals. The resulting oxidized LDL is more reactive to surrounding tissue. This makes it more likely to cause inflammation and blood clots that lead to heart attacks and strokes.

Red Wine Protects Against Some of Smoking’s Ill Effects

In All Health Watch, Anti-Aging, Cancer, Cognitive Health, Diet and Nutrition, Featured Article, Heart and Cardiovascular, Longevity, Lung Cancer by INH Research0 Comments

A new study has uncovered a simple strategy to lessen the damage of smoking: Drink a glass or two of red wine before lighting up.

When you smoke a cigarette, immediate damage occurs in your blood vessels. Smoking introduces toxic chemicals into your bloodstream. They cause inflammation that prematurely ages the endothelial cells that make up the lining of your blood vessels.

Red wine, however, counteracts this effect. It contains phenol, a natural organic compound. Phenol stimulates the formation of nitric oxide, which is a rich “fertilizer” for endothelial cells. It keeps them healthy and strong. And it makes them less susceptible to smoking damage.

For years, women have been told to take calcium supplements to prevent osteoporosis.

But now an alarming study has found that women with a history of stroke are seven times more likely to develop dementia if they take calcium.

Even women who have not had full-blown strokes but have suffered only mini-strokes are at risk. The researchers found that women with a marker for cerebrovascular disease, a sign of mini-strokes, are up to three times more likely to suffer dementia if they take calcium. Mini-strokes, or transient ischemic attacks, are small strokes in which the symptoms last only a few minutes.

Outlawed Chinese Herb Beats Bariatric Surgery

In All Health Watch, Anti-Aging, Arthritis, Big Pharma, Cholesterol, Diet and Nutrition, Featured Article, Skincare by Alyssa Minichetti0 Comments

Breaking research reveals there may be a simple solution for fast weight loss. And not just if you’re looking to drop few pounds… This may even work for people who are morbidly obese.

It comes from an herb Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners have used for the last 2,000 years.

A team at Harvard Medical School looked at the effects of a compound extracted from this ancient anti-inflammatory on obese mice. Researchers found it improved the way their bodies used leptin.

Leptin is a hormone that recognizes when your body has enough fuel from food. It acts as an off switch to your appetite. A leptin imbalance can lead to overeating and unhealthy food cravings.

After just one week, mice taking this extract lowered their food intake by 80%. That was just the first step… By three weeks into the study these mice had lost 45% of their initial bodyweight.

This natural fat-destroyer didn’t just lead to greater weight loss than you can expect from bariatric surgery… It did so without any invasive—dangerous—surgery, long recovery times…or even a single side effect. But the FDA doesn’t want you to have it.

What’s this outlawed Chinese weight loss secret?

Yoga Improves Mental Sharpness Better Than Brain Training

In All Health Watch, Alzheimer's and Memory, Big Pharma, Cognitive Health, Featured Article, Fitness and Exercise, Nootropics and Brain Support by INH Research0 Comments

Brain training is one of the newest ways to prevent the memory problems of aging and fight off dementia.

Lumosity and other computer programs offer mental exercises that help boost memory and intellectual agility. In recent years, as concern about Alzheimer’s has grown, the popularity of brain training has exploded. Worldwide revenues of these products is expected to top $700 million in the next few years.

And research shows brain training games do work. One recent study shows they cut in half the risk of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.

But a new study shows something else works even better. It’s one of the world’s oldest forms of exercise.

The FDA recently banned the antibacterial chemical triclosan from soap. The move is long overdue.

What’s more, it doesn’t even do what it was supposed to do, which is to get rid of germs. Dozens of studies show that soap with triclosan doesn’t work any better than regular soap in reducing bacteria on the skin.

Oxidation of LDL cholesterol occurs when regular LDL particles in your body react with free radicals. The resulting oxidized LDL is more reactive to surrounding tissue. This makes it more likely to cause inflammation and blood clots that lead to heart attacks and strokes.

Red Wine Protects Against Some of Smoking’s Ill Effects

In All Health Watch, Anti-Aging, Cancer, Cognitive Health, Diet and Nutrition, Featured Article, Heart and Cardiovascular, Longevity, Lung Cancer by INH Research0 Comments

A new study has uncovered a simple strategy to lessen the damage of smoking: Drink a glass or two of red wine before lighting up.

When you smoke a cigarette, immediate damage occurs in your blood vessels. Smoking introduces toxic chemicals into your bloodstream. They cause inflammation that prematurely ages the endothelial cells that make up the lining of your blood vessels.

Red wine, however, counteracts this effect. It contains phenol, a natural organic compound. Phenol stimulates the formation of nitric oxide, which is a rich “fertilizer” for endothelial cells. It keeps them healthy and strong. And it makes them less susceptible to smoking damage.

A study in the journal Circulation found that only 23% of people in the hospital for chest pain called 911. The others either drove themselves or had someone else drive them. This delays potentially lifesaving medical treatment.

Data collected from about 2,000 patients found that many chest pain sufferers are too embarrassed to call 911. They don’t want to cause a fuss in case they are suffering heartburn or something less serious than a heart attack. “What if it’s nothing?” they wonder.

Want better sex? Watch a funny movie.

Scientists have found laughter may be the best medicine for a lagging love life.

Research shows upbeat activities that lead to laughter, like watching a comedy, cause your body to produce nitric oxide. This simple molecule expands blood vessels.

For men, this is crucial. It increases blood flow. This supports healthy and long-lasting erections.

Nitric oxide is not the same as nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas” you get at the dentist. The blood vessel lining, called the endothelium, makes nitric oxide.

The endothelium is extremely sensitive to physical and chemical conditions inside our blood vessels. When the endothelium senses heart-healthy conditions, such as low stress, happiness, physical activity, or low cholesterol, it releases more nitric oxide.
