    Researchers Discover New Connections Between Melatonin and Hemorrhagic Stroke

    A stroke is a serious medical condition caused by poor blood flow to the brain that often results in cell death. At least 80 percent of all cases of stroke are the ischemic type of stroke. In an ischemic stroke, an artery to the vein is blocked, preventing brain tissue from receiving oxygen and nutrients. However, approximately 13 percent of...

    Osteoporosis in Men: A Serious Yet Often Overlooked Disease

    Osteoporosis is a disease where the density of your bones falls to a critical point where they are so weak that even mild physical impact can fracture them. Some people do not experience any symptoms of osteoporosis until they break a bone in a situation that would not have harmed them when they were younger. Osteoporosis is considered an age-related...

    Research on Glucosamine and Seizures Suggests Supplementation May Offer Protection

    A seizure is an event that happens because of a sudden electrical abnormality in the brain. There are many different types of seizures. Seizures that affect just one region of the brain are known as focal seizures, while seizures that affect both sides of the brain are called generalized seizures. Even within these categories, there is more specificity. For example, there...

    New Study Links Low Calcium to Increased Risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest

    A recent study, published in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings examined the relationship between blood calcium levels and the risk of sudden cardiac arrest. Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is defined as when the heart suddenly stops beating due to a malfunction in the heart's electrical activity. According to the American Heart Association, approximately 350,000 people experience an out-of-hospital SCA each year in...

    Gut Health and Healthy Aging Intrinsically Linked

    One of the largest human microbiota studies ever conducted has found a strong correlation between gut health and healthy aging. According to the study, people who live to 100 have unique gut microbiome ecosystems similar to those found in healthy 30-year-olds. This study is just the latest in a growing body of research into the myriad of beneficial effects of...
  6. Chronobiology and the Circadian Rhythm: What You Need to Know

    Chronobiology and the Circadian Rhythm: What You Need to Know

    The circadian rhythm is a huge topic of discussion lately due to a group of three researchers winning the Nobel Prize for identifying the genes and proteins that coordinate our internal clocks. As the Nobel Laureate committee noted, a small mismatch between our bodies and the environment can lead to serious health problems. This makes understanding chronobiology and the circadian...
