  1. High-Salt Diet Kills Beneficial Gut Bacteria, Leading to Disease

    High-Salt Diet Kills Beneficial Gut Bacteria, Leading to Disease

    A team of international researchers has found a high-salt diet reduces the population of the beneficial gut bacteria Lactobacillus. This, in turn, impacts immune cells which can lead to the development of hypertension and autoimmune disease. Probiotics may help to curb these effects. Gut Flora and Salt-Sensitive Diseases A high-salt diet has long been identified as a contributing factor to...
  2. Low Vitamin D Linked to Cancer Risk

    Low Vitamin D Linked to Cancer Risk

    If you're not giving your body enough vitamin D, you may be exposing yourself to a higher risk of developing certain types of cancer. At least, that's what the findings from two new studies have revealed. While we're warned that too much sun exposure will raise the risk of developing skin cancer, it seems too little sunshine is just as...
  3. Can Probiotics Protect Against Stress?

    Can Probiotics Protect Against Stress?

    A new study adds to growing evidence confirming that probiotics can protect against stress. Researchers are studying the application of a type of good bacteria that, if successful in human trials, may result in a probiotic-based immunization to battle mood disorders such as anxiety, depression and posttraumatic stress disorder. The Complex Link Between Gut Health and Mental Health Over time...

    The Latest Breakthroughs in Gut Bacteria Research

    From brain function to metabolic function, the mountains of gut bacteria research over the past few years have only just begun to reveal how the trillions of microorganisms that reside in our guts impact our health. Here’s a roundup of some of the most recent research into our gastrointestinal microbiota and its implications on health. New Insights Into Gut Bacteria’s...
  5. Dietary Flavonoids May Help Preserve Lung Health

    Dietary Flavonoids May Help Preserve Lung Health

    Flavonoids are a diverse group of plant chemicals, known as phytonutrients, that are found in most all fruits and vegetables. While flavonoids have been known to have a number of health benefits due to their antioxidant powers, new research has shown that they may also play a role in promoting lung health. As we age, lung function naturally declines. In fact...
  6. Can Consuming Dietary Flavonoids Help Protect Against Prostate Cancer?

    Can Consuming Dietary Flavonoids Help Protect Against Prostate Cancer?

    Flavonoids are a group of naturally occurring plant-derived compounds which are amongst the most powerful and abundant antioxidants in our diets. Growing evidence suggests that consuming flavonoids may protect against prostate cancer. What Is Prostate Cancer? Cancer begins when our cells begin to uncontrollably grow, divide, and, in some cases, spread. Nearly any cell in the body can become cancerous...

    Serotonin and Memory: New Insights May Lead to Future Therapies for Cognitive Decline

    In the United States alone, over 16 million people live with some form of cognitive impairment. While age is the greatest risk factor, with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia being the leading causes, cognitive decline bears no limitation to any specific demographic. Conditions such as brain injury, depression, PTSD, schizophrenia and stroke are all known to be accompanied by signs of...
  9. Research on Gut Bacteria Uncovers New Heart Health, Immune System Benefits

    Research on Gut Bacteria Uncovers New Heart Health, Immune System Benefits

    Over the past decade, research on gut bacteria has exponentially increased our understanding of how our gut affects us as a whole. So, what exactly is the gut microbiome, how does it form and what is the link to immune response and heart health? What is the Microbiome? Each one of us possesses a complex and completely unique ecosystem of...
  10. Meal Timing and Diet Alter Gut Health

    Meal Timing and Diet Alter Gut Health

    Every time we consume food, we’re also feeding the bacteria that call our bodies home. The human body plays host to trillions of microorganisms, including thousands of species of bacteria, fungi and viruses. These microorganisms actually outnumber our own cells, and the vast majority of them reside in our digestive system. Referred to as the gut’s microbiota or gut flora...
