Weight Loss Cures Sleep Apnea

Shedding extra weight may improve the sleep of obese people (and their partners), with a research suggesting it even cures sleep apnea, according to a new study.

The work, appearing in the respected Archives of Internal Medicine, confirms that losing weight can significantly improve, perhaps even eliminate sleep apnea symptoms in obese patients.

Many people who have sleep apnea don’t even know it, though those who sleep with them probably do.

Partners often complain about loud snoring, as well as sounds like snorts or choking that go on through the night. The patient is asleep and doesn’t know, though they do deal with a constant daytime sleepiness that can affect work or school.

Since sleep apnea is most common in overweight or obese people, doctors often recommend that these patients lose at least 10% of their body weight. Of course weight loss is no easier for these patients than it is for the rest of us, though the new research offers solid support for this advice, and might give patients just the motivation they need to stick with their weight loss goals.

In this study, the subjects were 264 obese adults who had type 2 diabetes and were also dealing with symptoms of sleep apnea.

The participants were randomly assigned into either a weight loss program or a diabetes management program. The weight loss program involved portion-controlled diets and exercise for at least 175 minutes (or more) per week.

After one year, the weight loss group lost an average of 24 pounds; the diabetes management group dropped just about 1 pound.

Beyond the weight loss, the difference between the two groups also appeared in terms of their sleep apnea symptoms. In fact, the researchers found that those with severe sleep apnea who lost weight were three times more likely to have a complete remission of their symptoms as compared to those who didn’t lose weight.

What’s more, the weight loss group had about half the instances of severe sleep apnea as did the diabetes management group.

In fact, those in the management group experienced a worsening of their sleep apnea symptoms.

“These results show that doctors as well as patients can expect a significant improvement in their sleep apnea with weight loss,” says researcher Gary Foster, director of the Center for Obesity Research and Education at Temple University. “And a reduction in sleep apnea has a number of benefits for overall health and well-being.”

Sleep apnea is a chronic disorder that brings symptoms such as super-loud snoring and sleep disruption that comes from the airway being temporarily blocked (interrupting your breathing) as you sleep.

Losing Weight Likely To Relieve (Or Cure) Sleep Problems Continued…

Patients may actually stop breathing over and over as they sleep, perhaps even hundreds of times a night, for anywhere from a few seconds to up to a minute (or longer). It’s no wonder those who have this condition don’t have the energy to do things during the day – would you?

Sleep apnea can affect anyone, even kids, however the factors that add to your risk include:

- Being male

- Being overweight

- Being over 40 years old

- Having a neck size over 17 inches for men, 16 inches for women

- Having larger tonsils

- A family history of sleep apnea

Left untreated, sleep apnea can bring on some troublesome, life-changing health problems including high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure, irregular heartbeat or heart attack.

According to the National Institute of Health, this sleep disturbance affects more than 12 million Americans. Even today, many cases of sleep apnea remain undiagnosed (and therefore untreated) because of lack of awareness in both patients and healthcare providers.

The good news is that there are effective treatments available and cured for sleep apnea and other sleep related problems, and research like the current study shows that sometimes simple, conventional approaches work best.

How To Build Willpower and How It Effects Workouts

We all know exercising regularly is good for us and many of us start out each day with the best of intentions, a lunchtime workout, or a long walk after dinner, only to end an exhausting, stress-filled day without fitting in that workout.  So, how can you build willpower to enable you to keep to those important exercise plans?

One of the reasons we may not be able to follow through on those exercise goals we set for ourselves is that we’ve used up our store of willpower during the day on other things.

A new study published recently in the journal Psychology and Health examined the intriguing theory that people may only have so much self-control available to them on any given day.

Willpower may well be a limited resource – use it on one thing and it won’t be there for anything else. “When you use self-control for other things – like meeting a deadline at work or resisting the temptation to eat a doughnut – you deplete your pool of self-control,” explains exercise scientist Kathleen Martin Ginis, PhD, of McMaster University. “We wanted to see how that impacted exercise.”

She and her colleague Steven R. Bray, Ph.D. created a lab experiment to test the idea of limited willpower and exercise. They recruited 61 college students who weren’t regular exercisers.

The subjects were first asked to exercise on lab based exercise machines. Half the participants were then required to perform a task (known as the Stroop test) that was intended to deplete their stores of willpower.

The test involved showing the subjects the words for colors (red, for example) only the words were printed in another color (in blue ink for instance). Subjects had to say the color they saw; resisting the temptation to say the name of the color they were reading – not an easy task. It takes more self-control than you might think to ignore the written word and make yourself say the color name instead.

The subjects then submitted to another round of exercise. Those whose willpower had been challenged didn’t exercise with the same intensity as subjects who hadn’t taken the test. What’s more, the students who’d had their willpower challenged worked out less over the eight weeks that followed.

The good news is that self-control is much like a muscle. The more you use it the bigger (and stronger) it will get. By challenging yourself to do things, get up off the couch for instance, the stronger your self-control becomes.

Willpower Exists Only In Limited Supply Continued…

Experts like Boston psychologist Eric Endlich, Ph.D., a specialist in motivating people when it comes to diet and exercise, suggests that having a plan can truly make all the difference. He recommends:

· Scheduling exercise into your day – if you know you workout best early, do that. If you have trouble at the end of the day, set up your exercise time during your lunch hour when you’ll have more energy.

· Having things ready to go keeps you from being delayed by searching out what you need. By doing this, you don’t allow yourself to have that internal debate (should I, shouldn’t I?) while you gather your things – instead what you need is on hand, ready to go.

· Having a trainer or exercise buddy is also a great tool to help you stick with your fitness goals. Just knowing someone’s counting on you (or waiting on you) to show up is a fantastic motivator.

· Mood matters, so keep yourself as upbeat as you can before a workout. Listen to music or watch something that is uplifting and you’ll be more likely to maintain your motivation for the exercise.

Even if your willpower is limited, these ideas are all super suggestions to help you achieve that goal and get more active.

Before you know it, exercising will have become an accepted (and expected) part of your routine and you’ll be seeing the benefits to your mind and body.

And if you build willpower, you can use all that extra willpower for other things, like resisting snacks and going to meetings.

More Vitamin D Needed To Prevent Falls

Every 18 seconds, a senior is in the emergency room as the result of a fall according to numbers from the Centers for Disease Control.

And while the risk of falling goes up as we age, a recent research review appearing in the online issue of BMJ finds that taking vitamin D supplements could reduce the risk of falls by 19% in those over 65. The amount of vitamin D needed is from 700 to 1,000 International Units (IU) a day according to a new study.

The review is based on eight studies of those 65 and older who took either vitamin supplements (doses varied by study) or placebos and lived on their own or in nursing homes.

To qualify for the review, the studies had to be double blind, randomized and controlled trials of older subjects (65 or older) who got a defined oral supplement. A fall assessment had to be conducted as part of the research.

The team of Swiss and American researchers found that for participants to get the reduced risk, they had to take at least 700 IUs a day. Smaller doses didn’t seem to make any impact in how likely a senior was to fall.

In fact, the team found that the reduction in fall risk was only seen in those who had a vitamin D blood level of at least 60 nonomoles per liter.

Vitamin D is known to help with muscle strength and keeping bones healthy. Strong muscles and bones as we age could be the reason these older folks didn’t experience as many falls.

As a fat-soluble nutrient, vitamin D is found naturally in foods like oily fish (salmon, tuna and mackerel), beef liver, fish liver oils, cheese and eggs. If these aren’t to your taste then there are fortified choices as well, like milk, ready to eat cereals, some brands of orange juice, yogurt, margarine and fruit juices.

Even with all these natural dietary sources of vitamin D, it’s hard for people to get enough just from the foods they eat, which is why supplements have become so popular.

Your body also produces vitamin D naturally from exposure to sunlight, though this ability declines as we age. What’s more, sunscreens of SPF 15 or higher – are a valuable weapon against skin cancer – are also known to block nearly all vitamin D synthesis by the skin. Being obese or overweight also makes your body less able to make vitamin D while you’re out in the sun.

This latest research review suggests that higher doses of vitamin D supplements might be even better at preventing falls in this age group. The highest dose used in the studies was 1,000 IUs a day. Medical experts warn that taking too much vitamin D can cause trouble – abnormal heart rhythm, confusion, constipation, kidney stones and nausea – so talk with your own doctor before making supplements (any supplements) part of your diet.

Vitamin D Reduces The Risk of Falling Continued…

Today the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends 200 IU of vitamin D as an adequate daily intake for adults under 50 years old.

For those aged 51-70 years, the number doubles to 400 IUs of vitamin D per day, and for those over 71 years old, daily intake should be 600 IUs per day.

The IOM puts the upper limit for vitamin D intake at 2,000 IUs a day for adults, 1,000 IUs a day for infants. Many experts believe that the adequate daily intake of vitamin D should be far higher (maybe 1,000 IUs a day for adults and children). The IOM is reviewing their own recommendations and expects to announce any changes in May 2010.

For now, older people should keep an eye on the debate and talk with your own doctor about adding a vitamin D supplement to your diet.

Getting your vitamin D from food sources is usually best, try adding some rich sources of this vitamin to your diet once in a while.

Beyond helping prevent falls, recent research has shown that sufficient levels of this key nutrient may help keep the brain healthy, reduce arthritis and osteoporotic fractures, as well as cutting your chances for developing heart disease and even some cancers.

Foods That Cause Symptoms of Food Poisoning

It’s a strange contradiction that a food known to be good for you can also be the source of infections or toxins, and create the symptoms of food poisoning, but this is exactly the conclusion of a recently issued report by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI).

Foods like leafy greens; berries, eggs and tuna may also be carrying some pretty nasty illnesses inside those healthy packages.

“We don’t recommend that consumers change their eating habits,” says Caroline Smith DeWaal, the CSPI’s head of food safety programs. The group hopes instead to point out the weaknesses in our food safety system.

Food recalls are nothing new, which is why we need to find trouble spots and get rid of them. There are several bills before Congress that would improve food safety by requiring all food producers to keep written safety plans, while also giving the FDA more power to check these plans and enforce the rules.

The authors of the report looked at Centers for Disease Control data on food borne illness outbreaks, going back as far as 1990. The number one food linked to illness? Leafy greens such as iceberg lettuce, romaine and spinach (among others) were the culprits in 363 outbreaks – causing 13,568 people to get sick. Most of these were caused by norovirus, E coli and salmonella.

Beyond those good-for-you-greens, here are the other foods that might pose a danger:

1) Eggs, involved in 352 outbreaks – 11,163 reported cases of illness.

2) Tuna, involved in 268 outbreaks – 2,341 reported cases of illness.

3) Oysters, involved in 132 outbreaks – 3,409 reported cases of illness.

4) Potatoes, involved in 108 outbreaks – 3,659 reported cases of illness.

5) Cheese, involved in 83 outbreaks – 2,761 reported cases of illness.

6) Ice cream, involved in 74 outbreaks – 2,594 reported cases of illness.

7) Tomatoes, involved in 31 outbreaks – 3,292 reported cases of illness.

8) Sprouts, involved in 31 outbreaks – 2,022 reported cases of illness.

9) Berries, involved in 25 outbreaks – 3,397 reported cases of illness.

Before you clear out your cupboards and fridge, understand that the CDC database used for the research can’t tell us if tomatoes or another ingredient in a salad was responsible for the illness.

And since foods like potatoes are typically eaten cooked, it’s probably not the veggie itself that causes the outbreak, but something in its handling (manure, contaminated irrigation water) or poor handling procedures that might be to blame.

Also the CDC data only includes foods that are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This leaves out some likely culprits – beef, poultry, pork and even some egg products, these are the responsibility of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Foods That Cause Illness Continued…

It’s also important to understand that not all food borne illness outbreaks are reported to authorities. This may be, as report author Smith DeWaal says “the tip of the iceberg.”

According to CDC numbers, 76 million Americans get a food borne illness each year. To keep yourself from being part of that number there are some simple steps you can take to protect yourself and your family.

While the food supply in the U.S. is very safe, you should still make every effort to keep food cold and cook it thoroughly. Store leftovers right away. Avoid raw oysters, and if you do indulge, keep oysters chilled. Stay away from raw eggs, this includes eating uncooked batter.

Fresh produce has been touched by many hands, and should be washed with soap and water, to remove any bacteria that may remain on the skin that could make you sick.

Handling healthy foods (or any foods for that matter) properly can help you get all the nutritious benefits without being effected by the symptoms of food poisoning or other food borne illness.

Average age expectancy Cut By Being Overweight

If you want to spend your golden years in the best shape possible, being overweight at midlife isn’t the way to go about it as it may cut the average age expectancy.

American researchers have found that being fat in middle age cuts a woman’s chances of reaching a ripe old age in good physical and mental shape by almost 80%.

The study appears online in the medical journal BMJ, and was funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health and the Boston Obesity Nutrition Research Center.

With average life spans increasing due to advances in both detecting and treating illness, it’s those extra pounds so many of us carry that might just undo these hard won gains.

And since fat is known to act the same way in both men and women, it’s likely these results linking extra weight at midlife with a reduced chance of a healthy old age hold for men as well as women.

The team of researchers observed over 17,000 female nurses, part of the U.S. Nurses’ Health Study, who were an average age of 50 years and healthy, when the study began in 1976.

The subjects weight and health changes such as occurrence of chronic diseases, information on cognitive function, physical function and mental health were taken every 2 years by questionnaires until 2000. In terms of weight we know that a Body Mass Index (BMI) between 19-25 is considered more healthy, numbers from 25-29.9 designate a person thought to be overweight, and a value over 30 is categorized as obese.

Researchers Qi Sun and colleagues at the Harvard School of Public Health and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston found that for every one point increase in BMI women had a 12% lower chance of making it to age 70 in good health compared to those with lower BMI.

Good health was defined as being free of 11 different chronic conditions while also having enough physical and mental ability to do everyday things like shopping, cleaning or climbing stairs.

What’s more, for every 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) a woman gained after age 18, her odds of living past 70 dropped by 5%. Subjects who were already overweight at 18 and then gained more than 10 kilograms later in life had about a 20% chance of making it to age 70 in good health.

You can see how those extra pounds early on can bring some real troubles as you get older. The diseases often plaguing these overweight women were major, life changing ones – like diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Overweight In Middle Age Can Reduce Life Continued…

“People may think they can safely gain weight through their 20s, 30s and 40s, but there is no evidence that gaining weight is natural,” points out Aviva Must, professor and chair of the public health and community medicine department at Tufts University School of Medicine, but not part of the study. “These results suggest that small weight gains are not innocuous.”

Medical experts agree that our population is aging, and that obesity is more common than ever before. In fact, in 2003-4, a record 66.3% of American adults were overweight or obese – this compared to just 14.5% in 1976 when the Nurses’ Health Study began.

Adding to the need to get rid of those extra pounds is the work by British researchers published earlier this year that found those with a BMI from 30-35 die almost 3 years earlier than those with BMI’s in the normal range.

Anyone with a BMI over 40 is considered morbidly obese and likely to die almost 10 years before they should.

All the more reason for getting up – getting active now, so average age expectancy is increased

Caffeine Increases Symptoms of Heart Problems Sometimes

If you drink lots of coffee and your diet’s not as healthy as it should be you’re more likely to have the symptom of a heart problem, abnormal heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation), according to some recent Italian research presented this week at the European Society of Cardiology annual meeting in Barcelona.

Atrial fibrillation is a heart condition where the two upper chambers of the heart quiver instead of beating, as they should. This surprisingly common malfunction can lead to heart palpitations, shortness of breath, fatigue and increased stroke risk.

For this work, patients just diagnosed with the common heart arrhythmia were asked to give information about their dietary habits, including how much caffeine they consumed.

A control group of patients without atrial fibrillation also supplied dietary information. The data came from self-reported food frequency questionnaires that covered 116 different items, followed up by an interviewer asking subjects about the foods (and drinks) they consumed on a regular basis.

The subjects in the study were also ranked according to how faithful they were to the Mediterranean diet, an eating plan full of whole grains, fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds with olive oil as the source of fat, no eggs and limited amounts of red meat, fish and poultry and wine drunk in moderation.

Compliance to this eating plan was ranked from 0 (no compliance) to 55 (following faithfully) – the higher the score the greater the adherence to the Mediterranean-style eating plan.

This increasingly popular way of eating has been shown in earlier research to offer benefits to health in terms of death rates, coronary artery disease, blood pressure and cholesterol metabolism.

Those with atrial fibrillation were significantly less likely to stick to the Mediterranean diet than those without this cardiac condition. These subjects reported eating more red meat and full fat dairy products. Even more damaging, these patients got more of their total dietary antioxidants from coffee as opposed to other food sources like fruits, veggies and wine.

Daily coffee intake for the subjects was divided into 4 categories – no coffee, low (one cup/day), medium (2-3 cups/day) or heavy (more than 3 cups/day) intake.

Caffeine is a natural part of the leaves, seeds and fruits of more than 60 different plants – including coffee beans, tea leaves, cocoa beans and kola nuts. The researchers looked at all caffeine sources in evaluating the daily intake of the participants.

Lots Of Coffee And An Unhealthy Diet Linked To Heart Risk Continued…

The researchers found that those who drank the most amount of coffee each day were more likely to have atrial fibrillation than those who drank less. “Our study suggests that high intake of coffee increases the risk of arrhythmias in people without known cardiac disease,” says study author Dr. Anna Vittoria Mattioli of the University of Modena in Italy.

This Italian research isn’t reason enough to cut your morning (or after dinner) coffee, but the results do suggest that getting antioxidants from other food sources is important to keeping your body healthy, and hopefully avoid symptoms of heart problems like the one in this article.

Two cups of coffee a day, as well as a diet full of natural foods and limited alcohol intake is a reasonable goal – though one most of us have yet to achieve.

A Surprising Cause of High Blood Pressure

A new and surprising cause of high blood pressure has been discovered.

People who live within earshot of traffic noise – loud engines running, constant honking horns and the scream of screeching brakes – have an increased risk of high blood pressure according to work that appears in the September 9, 2009 issue of the open access journal Environmental Health.

And since hypertension can exist for years in silence, without a single symptom, it’s important to be aware of things around you that might increase your risk.

One of those may be too much time spent near busy, noisy roadways. Noise pollution is one of the most destructive forms of pollution, with more noise out there today than ever before. And fewer ways to escape it.

However, the source of most of the modern barrage of sound is transportation related, the noise of cars, planes and trains.

The team of researchers out of Sweden’s Lund University Hospital analyzed data from just over 24,000 public health questionnaires filled out by subjects ranging in age from 18 to 80 years old concerning their living arrangements in Scania, a province in southern Sweden.

The researchers also calculated the average residential exposure to traffic noise by using the common traffic levels, speed limits and the distance from a subject’s home to the road.

About 30% of Europeans live in places where the noise from nearby traffic averaged 55 decibels or higher. In the U.S. subways are a major source of excessive noise exposure for an estimated 33 million riders each workday.

This says nothing of the many other sounds, like blaring stereos, construction equipment, screaming sirens and the like that assault our ears each and every day.

According to the research, young and middle-aged subjects in the study who lived near traffic noise above 60 decibels (the sound level of normal conversation) were more likely to have high blood pressure.

In fact, the risk of hypertension went up by more than 25% for those who were exposed to traffic noise at this level. The effect was most apparent for middle-aged adults from 40 to 59 years old. The association with high blood pressure got stronger as the sound level got higher. For sounds above 64 decibels, the risk of hypertension rose by more than 90%.

According to the experts, the likely culprits for the rise in blood pressure from the noise was the stress and disruption to sleep of the traffic sounds from the road.

Loud Traffic Noise Bad For Your Blood Pressure Continued…

Interestingly, among 60 to 80 year olds higher decibel levels didn’t impact hypertension. Science knows that aging causes gradual hearing loss, especially in the high frequencies. As young people often don’t have high blood pressure, it may be that the impact of the traffic noise was more obvious.

“The effect of noise may become less important, or harder to detect, relative to other risk factors with increasing age,” explains study author Theo Bodin. “Alternatively, it could be that noise annoyance varies with age.”

If you’re worried about the levels of noise around you, there are things you can do. If you’re looking to get the sound outside your home under control, one of the most natural, earth-friendly suggestions is to plant trees or tall shrubs at the edge of your property. Manmade materials of either renewable wood material or recycled plastic also serve to absorb sound and leave you with some welcome peace and quiet, or at least less noise.

Other options include double glazing the house, ear plugs are night and thicker curtains, as these action may reduce the noise levels in the house, which is seen to be the cause of high blood pressure in those taking part in the study.

Symptoms For Breast Cancer and Other Cancer Signs

Women are usually more comfortable than men about going to the doctor for checkups and regular medical screening, yet strangely younger women tend to ignore symptoms that might be a warning sign of cancer. But what are the symptoms for breast cancer and other potential cancer signs?

Thinking cancer is a problem of the old, or that most cancers are incurable they let symptoms go. This is a tragic mistake that costs lives, even young lives.

Striking a balance between awareness and denial is tricky, which is why online medical resource WebMD asked experts to talk about changes in your body that should bring you to the doctor for a checkup.

1) Unexplained weight loss of 10 pounds in a month, if you haven’t been doing anything to encourage it. Cancer isn’t always the answer here, sometimes an overactive thyroid can be to blame, but you won’t know until you see your doctor.

2) Bloating (“my jeans don’t fit!”) that happens every day and lingers for more than a few weeks should be investigated. You may have blood work and CT scans as your doctor rules out ovarian cancer, an often silent and utterly treatable form of cancer.

3) Breast changes, not just lumps, but redness or thickening of the skin (or a rash that stays around for a few weeks) on the breast can be the first sign of a rare, aggressive form of cancer. If the look of a nipple changes, or you see discharge (and aren’t breastfeeding) you should be evaluated at once.

4) For pre-menopausal women, bleeding between periods should be checked, especially if your cycles are typically very regular and spotting is unusual for you. Bleeding after menopause is also a must-check symptom.

5) Skin changes, not just in moles, but changes in the pigment of the skin, sudden bleeding on your skin or excessive scaling are all things you want to bring to your doctor’s attention if they persist for more than a few weeks.

6) Trouble swallowing that has you changing the consistency of the foods you eat is a symptom not to be ignored. Your doctor will take a careful history, order chest X-rays or other exams of the GI tract.

7) Blood in the wrong place, such as in your urine or stool could be a warning sign you doctor will need to investigate. Coughing up blood must be evaluated too, especially if this happens more than once.

8) Gnawing belly pain and depression can be an early sign of pancreatic cancer according to some researchers, though the link isn’t well understood. These two symptoms happening together for even a few days are reason enough for a trip to your doctor.

9) Persistent indigestion without pregnancy might be a red flag for cancer of the esophagus, stomach or throat. Your doctor will do a careful evaluation before deciding what tests, if any, to order.

10) Changes in your mouth such as white patches inside the mouth or white spots on the tongue, especially if you smoke, are clues you need to bring to the attention of your dentist or doctor.

Cancer Warning Signs Women Should Never Ignore Continued…

11) Pain that persists and is unexplained needs to be evaluated right away, as it can be an early symptom of some cancers.

12) Changes in lymph nodes like a lump or swelling in the nodes under your armpit or neck, or on any part of your body could be an early warning sign. If the change in the lymph node stays around for a month or more, see your doctor.

13) Fever without any explanation (the flu or another infection) can suggest early blood cancers like leukemia or lymphoma. If the fever comes with jaundice or change in the color of your stool, call your doctor for a physical, X-ray, CT scan, MRI or other testing.

14) Fatigue is a vague symptom that can point to cancer, especially if there’s no other reason (busy schedule, late nights, etc.) for feeling so wiped out, even after you’ve gotten a good night sleep.

15) Prolonged coughs are a discomfort of colds and allergies, but a cough that lasts three to four weeks shouldn’t be ignored any longer. Your doctor will do an exam, check your lung functioning and order X-rays, especially if you smoke.

If any of these easy-to-ignore symptoms suddenly becomes a part of your life, don’t wait. Instead, listen to your body and make the time to see a doctor about your concerns.

Denial can, and does, kill many people, even young ones. You owe it to yourself and those in your life who love you to have warning symptoms for breast cancer or other cancer signs checked out by your doctor so that you won’t be one of them.

Reduce Cortisol – Tips For Reducing Stress

If you’re stressing, a French study published in the latest Nutrition Journal offers you a way to reduce cortisol (the stress hormone) by potentially adding a fruit to your diet.

A key ingredient in this delicious fruit is an enzyme called superoxide dismutase (SOD) that has helpful antioxidant properties known to prevent damage to body tissues. This remarkable enzyme may help to cut the damage caused by oxidative stress, which is the process that releases those troublesome atoms known as free radicals into the tissues of the body.

Melons, it turns out, are a rich source of an extract dubbed “the enzyme of life” when it was first discovered in 1968. It’s believed by many experts to be even more powerful than antioxidant vitamins because it encourages the body to produce its own antioxidants such as catalase and glutathione peroxidase.

The placebo-controlled, double-blind study involved representatives from Seppic France (the distributor of a commercial extract of SOD known as Extramel) working in collaboration with scientists from the University Henri Poincaré and Isoclin to investigate the anti-stress effects of this natural compound on 70 healthy volunteers aged 30 to 55.

Earlier work had shown that there may be a link between psychological stress and oxidative stress, and this team wanted to see if helping the body to deal with oxidative stress might also help people cope with mental stress too.

The lead researcher, Marie-Anne Milesi of Seppic points out, “Several studies have shown that there is a link between psychological stress and intracellular oxidative stress. We wanted to test whether augmenting the body’s ability to deal with oxidative species might help a person’s ability to resist burnout.”

Damage from oxidative stress has been implicated in many diseases – life changing conditions such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease – as well as how we age. Free radicals come from the natural intake of oxygen as your breathe, interacting with other molecules inside your cells. Beyond what happens inside the body, things from the environment such as pollution, sunlight and smoking can also trigger the production of dangerous free radicals.

The research randomly assigned stressed but healthy volunteers to two different groups. One group of subjects took a capsule with 10 mg Extramel, equal to 140 international units of the SOD enzyme, the other group got a capsule with an inactive starch compound.

An All-Natural Way To Fight Stress – Eat Melon Continued…

The group taking the SOD enzyme reported fewer stress or fatigue symptoms than those who took the placebo capsule. In fact, the positive effects on stress and fatigue was much greater and longer lasting than the researchers had expected.

Taking the enzyme seemed to offer significant improvements to concentration, cut feelings of being tired, lessened irritability and improved sleeping problems.

There was a strong placebo effect in the 35 subjects who got the placebo capsule, though the effect only seemed to last for the first week of the study. This may have been because the levels of fatigue and stress were not out of the ordinary in these volunteers.

The authors suggest that the results might have been more pronounced if subjects with higher levels of stress or fatigue had been a part of the work.

Further research of a longer duration with a larger number of subjects will be needed to confirm these results that this can reduce cortisol levels. In the meantime, a serving of juicy, delicious melon might just be the natural answer to dealing with everyday stress.

The Benefits of Meatless Dinners

Despite ever-rising obesity rates, eating a less meat based diet has quietly become mainstream.  So, what are the benefits of meatless dinners?

Notice the growing vegetarian options on restaurant menus and the exploding number of vegetarian recipes – ample evidence that eating healthy is alive and well.

Today people are making plant based items – fruits, veggies, grains, nuts, and seeds – a major component of their diet. According to numbers out of the American Dietetic Association, almost 2.5% of the adult population of the U.S. eats a meat free diet.

Going meatless is easier than ever before. There are plenty of meatless products on the shelves of your local grocery stores – you can try several brands to find something you like.

There are also countless vegetarian cookbooks, magazines and online resources for great tasting, family friendly recipes. If you want to give going meatless a try, make the change a gradual one. Make a single day (or meal) meatless and see how you do.

Meatless meals most often feature veggies, beans and grains. Think of the foods that you like already that don’t have meat in them, like lasagna, pasta, soups and salads.

Lots of times you can use your own favorite recipes and just substitute beans or another vegetarian option in place of the meat. You might try:

- Beans and legumes – in casseroles or salads

- Vegetarian refried beans – in burritos or tacos

- Tofu – in stir fry

There’s a term being coined for those who follow a mainly plant based diet, but still eat some meat, poultry or fish – flexitarian.

A growing number of us are embracing this way of eating, and some consider it to be very similar to the Mediterranean diet – an eating plan that limits red meats and includes ample amounts of fruits, veggies, legumes, whole grains and healthy fats.

Research has consistently shown that eating this way cuts the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and perhaps even cancer, as well as helping out with weight loss.

Removing the meat from some of your meals also has benefits to your budget. In fact, cutting a meat meal from your weekly menu will almost certainly bring your grocery bill down.

To save on the meat you do buy, take advantage of special sales, separate the meat your bring home into meal sized portions (be sure to label and date the packages) and freeze these.

Another way to stretch a dollar is to buy a larger size roast than you need for a single meal and use it (creatively) as leftovers for 3 to 4 meals.

Protein isn’t just available in a cut of red meat. There are other sources that are just as natural, but cost a whole lot less. A large egg brings you 6 grams of protein. A glass of milk delivers 8 grams of protein a serving. Another often-overlooked protein source is cottage cheese, which is a healthy, and affordable, way to get your protein for the day. Lastly, tofu can cost as little as 6 cents for a full gram of protein.

Going Meatless: Easy, Healthy, Affordable Continued…

Beyond saving you money, getting your protein from non-meat sources has some rather impressive benefits to the body-

- You to take in fewer calories and less fat, which can lead to improved cholesterol numbers and better weight management.

- Improved longevity – a National Cancer Institute study found that those who ate 4 ounces (114 grams) of red meat daily were 30% more likely to die of any cause over 10 years than those who ate less red meat. Even sausage and lunch meat increased the risk.

- Less disease risk – including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and some types of cancer.

If meat simply must be a part of all your meals, at least be sure you’re eating a proper portion size. A serving of protein should really be no more than 3 ounces (85 grams).

This is about the size of a standard deck of playing cards, and should take up no more than a quarter of your dinner plate. Veggies and fruits should take another half, with the last quarter left to whole grains.

The benefits to your health of replacing a few “with meat” dinners with tasty and nutritious meatless dinners are plain.  Just experiment and try a few different options and you are sure to find something you like.
