In this study researchers in the Cardiology department, University Hospital, Zurich, gave 22 heart transplant recipients either Cocoa Polyphenol rich dark chocolate or chocolate without the Cocoa polyphenols in a placebo-controlled study. The Cocoa Polyphenols significantly opened up the coronary arteries improving blood flow to the heart and there was a decreased tendency to form an improper blood clot due to platelet clumping in the heart. There was also a significant jump in antioxidant activity in the Cocoa Polyphenol receiving patients.
Six-hours after suffering with a heart attack forty-nine patients were randomly assigned to either hypothermia plus Coenzyme Q10 or hypothermia plus a placebo after CPR. The initial dosage of Coenzyme Q10 was 250mg which was followed by 150mg 3 times a day for 5 days. Coenzyme Q10 was safe and had no side effects but it did absolutely save lives.
Scientists at the USDA Human Nutrition research Center on Aging at Tufts University understand why the results of a study concerning a single nutrient should not be considered in a vacuum; nutrients work in pathways that are dependent on other nutrients. In fact, in the case of Folic Acid they have discovered just that. Research shows that Folic Acid has an ability to lower the risk of developing colon cancer; a life threatening disease.
During a 17 year follow-up of 4000 plus people scientists from the National Public health Institute in Finland have found that people with a higher blood level of active Vitamin D have a significant 40% decreased risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those with lower levels of the vitamin. The study is published in the October 2007 issue of the journal Diabetes Care. In diabetic patients, DHEA reduces inflammation, free radical activity, and glycation while improving the levels of the antioxidants Vitamin E and Glutathione The level of free radicals was compared between 20 healthy subjects free of diabetes who served as the control population and 20 patients with diabetes; the level of oxidative free radicals was much higher in the diabetics than in the healthy controls.
Medical researchers in Thailand placed 60 obese subjects on the same controlled diet; one group was placed on a Green Tea regimen and the other was given inactive, look and taste alike placebo. By the 12th week of the study those on the diet with Green Tea lost 7.26 more pounds than those on the diet alone. There was no difference in level of satiation, amount of physical activity, or calorie intake between the two groups.
