• Outlive your neighbor; take Vitamin D

    Sep 18, 2007
    This is a very large analysis of 18 existing studies on Vitamin D that included over 57,000 adults in the USA, Europe, and the U.K. that had to include mortality rates. Most of these adults were frail, older, and low in Vitamin D.
  • How Vitamin C and NAC fight a cancerous tumor

    Sep 17, 2007
    Free radicals generated by radiation, infections, rancid fats, inflammation, and toxins contribute to aging, damage to the body, and disease. Some of the conditions these free radicals contribute to include diabetes, degeneration of the eye, kidney damage, asthma, arthritic inflammation, coronary heart disease, and cancer. Antioxidants defend us from these dangerous free radicals by changing them into more stable substances.
  • Resveratrol protects the prostate

    Sep 14, 2007
    TRAMP mice dependably develop prostate cancer by their 10 week of life and by 12 weeks of age they may have already developed a metastasis to distant sites. Therefore, TRAMP mice are used to test the effects of drugs, surgery, diet, and nutrients on the risk of developing or the progression of prostate adenocarcinoma. By 28 weeks of age 100 % of these mice have developed metastasis of their prostate cancer to distant sites; to their lymph nodes or lungs.
  • Black Raspberry; more evidence that it protects against cancer

    Sep 13, 2007
    Recently scientists from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine demonstrated that a major antioxidant from Black Raspberry selectively destroyed leukemia cells while protecting nearby healthy cells (posted on our website June 25th, 2007). Not very long ago we reported that scientists from Ohio State University treated rats with a chemical carcinogen that dependably causes esophageal cancer. Giving Black Raspberries after exposing them to the chemical cut the number of tumors by 39%.
  • Animal study supports the results of Phase II human clinical trial showing that Pomegranate Extract both protects from developing and also fights prostate cancer

    Sep 12, 2007
    Scientists at the David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA and at the Greater Los Angeles VA Medical Center have previously shown that Pomegranate dramatically increases the amount of time it takes for PSA to double in prostate cancer patients with a rising PSA level in a Phase II clinical trial. Ellagitannins (ETs) are the most abundant polyphenols present in pomegranate juice and they contribute greatly to the benefits derived from the Pomegranate. Our digestive juices hydrolyze ETs into freeing Ellagic Acid which is converted by our healthy gut bacteria into urolithin A (UA) metabolites.
