Menstrual cycle is a direct indicator of overall female health, and periods are body’s way of telling you that things are working as they should. From puberty to menopause, menstruation is a part of life for women. And for many of those women, the monthly period comes with unwelcome side effects. A new research review […]
Green tea extract improves intestinal health and controls blood sugar levels.
According to recent studies in individuals with a cluster of risk factors for heart disease, ingesting green tea extract for four weeks can lower blood sugar levels and enhance gut health by reducing inflammation and “leaky gut.” This study, according to researchers, is the first to examine whether the anti-inflammatory properties of green tea may […]
Animal products are not as sustainable or as healthy as plant-based meat
The study, conducted by psychologists at the University of Bath, concludes that plant-based meat and dairy alternatives ‘offer a healthier and more environmentally sustainable solution which takes into account consumer preferences and behavior.’ A new paper published in Future Foods argues that because these foods are ‘specifically formulated to replicate the taste, texture, and overall […]
Is it better to eat a lot of small meals or a few big ones?
In fact, some research suggests that eating three larger meals per day may be more beneficial. For optimal health, it is broadly acknowledged in contemporary culture that individuals should split their daily diet into three big meals — breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This belief is based primarily on society and initial observational data. However, in […]
A increased risk of death before age 65 and a shorter life expectancy are associated with salting food at the table
A recent study published in the European Heart Journal shows that individuals who always add salt to cooked meals were at a 28% higher risk of premature death than those who rarely add salt. A higher frequency of adding salt to the table was also associated with a lower life expectancy. Several studies have shown […]
Fewer Burgers may translate to healthier Lungs, says researchers
A plant-centric diet in early adulthood was associated with less risk of emphysema in middle age, results of a long-running cohort study indicated. Participants whose diets at enrollment were in the top quintile on the A Priori Diet Quality Score (APDQS) system had 60% lower odds of developing emphysema over 30 years of follow-up versus those with […]
Women already have longer lifespans, and a healthy diet can increase longevity
Consuming more produce with vibrant colours can help reduce health problems affecting women. “The idea is that men get a lot of the diseases that tend to kill you, but women get those diseases less often or later so they perseverate but with illnesses that are debilitating,” said Billy R. Hammond, a professor in UGA’s […]
Vegetables have a miraculous compound that can accelerate the rate at which your wounds heal.
Leafy greens like Broccoli may help break down biofilms that render bacteria resistant to antibiotics, according to research from Beersheba’s Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU). By employing a natural chemical, Israeli researchers assert that they were able to double the pace of wound healing in pigs. They stated that they intended to develop the […]
Fiber-rich diets are linked to lower levels of antibiotic resistance in gut microbes
Researchers from the Agricultural Research Service and their colleagues found that healthy adults who consume at least 8 to 10 grams of soluble fiber daily have less antibiotic-resistant bacteria in their stomachs. With the widely held belief that the issue of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), the term used to refer to bacteria, viruses, and fungi that […]
The intake of raw and cooked vegetables and the development of Cardiovascular disease
Poor vegetable consumption is thought to be responsible for roughly 1.5 million untimely fatalities from cardiovascular disease each year. Higher vegetable diet has been linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), although the independent effect of raw and cooked vegetable consumption has yet to be determined. Between 2006 and 2010, half a million […]
