Life long choline supplementation may improve cognitive function in Alzheimer’s patients, finds study

Life long choline supplementation may improve cognitive function in Alzheimer’s patients, revealed a study published in the journal, Aging Cell.  Researchers from ASU-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center (NDRC) checked whether choline supplementation could alleviate the alleviate effect of Alzheimer’s disease. Choline acts to protect the brain from Alzheimer’s disease in at least two ways, both […]

Trends in Dietary Carbohydrate, Protein, and Fat Intake and Diet Quality Among US Adults, 1999-2016

What were the trends in carbohydrate, fat, and protein intake among US adults from 1999 to 2016? In this nationally representative serial cross-sectional study that included 43 996 adults, there were decreases in low-quality carbohydrates (primarily added sugar) and increases in high-quality carbohydrates (primarily whole grains), plant protein (primarily whole grains and nuts), and polyunsaturated fat. […]

Statin-Associated Cardiomyopathy Responds to Statin Withdrawal and Administration of Coenzyme Q10

Heart failure (HF) is rapidly increasing in incidence and is often present in patients receiving long-term statin therapy.The objective was to test whether or not patients with HF on long-term statin therapy respond to discontinuation of statin therapy and initiation of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) supplementation.We prospectively identified patients receiving long-term statin therapy in whom HF developed […]

A Dietary Intervention with Reduction of Starch and Sucrose Leads to Reduced Gastrointestinal and Extra-Intestinal Symptoms in IBS Patients

Patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) exhibit low-grade inflammation and increased gut permeability. Dietary sugar has been shown to contribute to low-grade inflammation and increased gut permeability, and to correlate with gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of a starch- and sucrose-reduced diet (SSRD) on gastrointestinal (GI) […]

High cholesterol may protect against infections and atherosclerosis

According to the modified ‘response to injury’ hypothesis of atherogenesis, there are at least two pathways leading to the inflammatory and proliferative lesions of the arterial intima. The first involves monocyte and platelet interaction induced by hypercholesterolaemia. The second pathway involves direct stimulation of the endothelium by a number of factors, including smoking, the metabolic consequences […]

Prolonged Fasting Increases Cell Regeneration and Reverse Immunosuppression

Immune system defects are at the center of aging and a range of diseases. Here, we show that prolonged fasting reduces circulating IGF-1 levels and PKA activity in various cell populations, leading to signal transduction changes in long-term hematopoietic stem cells (LT-HSCs) and niche cells that promote stress resistance, self-renewal, and lineage-balanced regeneration. Multiple cycles […]
