Betaine supplement increases sprint muscle power
A study of the effects of betaine – TMG, or trimethylglycine – on muscular power during cycling found that ingesting 2.5 grams of the dietary supplement betaine for 7 days before a series of cycling sprint tests increased several measures of performance power by about 5.5 percent compared to baseline and 3.5 percent compared to […] Sat, 11 Aug 2012 19:59:56 +0000
New Olympian-designed bone health supplements
Aging adults concerned about bone health, bone strength and integrity, and osteoporosis risk might be interested in a new, carefully formulated line of dietary supplements available at OsteoNaturals.com. What is unique about this set of bone health supplements is the quality of their ingredient formulation, which was personally designed (after extensive research) by an experienced […] Wed, 08 Aug 2012 04:13:45 +0000
The Nrf2 knockout scare – can dietary antioxidants hurt you?
A recent UCLA study on the actions of a cellular antioxidant regulator, Nrf2, found that it had some connection to the formation of atherosclerotic plaque, and that reducing Nrf2 decreased atherosclerosis. But should these study findings scare you away from eating Nrf2-promoting dietary antioxidants found in broccoli, blueberries, and dark chocolate, or from taking the […] Tue, 11 Jan 2011 15:21:39 +0000
Toxoplasmosis (toxo): An infection caused by a single-celled parasite named Toxoplasma gondii that may invade tissues and damage the brain, especially of the fetus and newborn.
The parasite Toxoplasma gondii is very common (more than 60 million people in the US carry it) but few are aware of it because the immune system often keeps the parasite from causing illness.
The usual symptoms of toxo are similar to flu with fever, fatigue, headache, swollen lymph glands (lymphadenopathy), and muscle aches and pains (myalgia) that may last for a few days to several weeks.
Toxo can be contracted by touching the hands to the mouth after gardening, cleaning a cat's litter box, or anything that came into contact with cat feces. Toxo can also be contracted by eating raw or partly cooked meat, especially pork or lamb, or touching the hands to the mouth after contact with raw or undercooked meat.
Persons with a weakened immune system are at risk for developing a severe case of toxo. At high risk therefore for severe toxo are:
Children and adults with an inherited immune defect, a
Anyone who has received a transplant and is on immunosuppressive therapy (to prevent rejection of their transplant), and
The fetus and newborn.
Toxoplasma gondii is a well-known teratogen -- an agent that can cause birth defects. If a woman is pregnant when she is infected, the parasite can cross the placenta from her to the baby with sometimes catastrophic consequences.
Lent is a time of self-reflection and deep prayer. You're probably readying your soul for this reflective season and making vows and resolutions. But are you preparing your body, which is Christ's temple, as well?
Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) method has been found to improve cognitive skills like working memory, sensory processing and behavioural traits related to autism and ADHD ( Attention deficit-Hyperactivity disorder).
In a recent study 12 young adults suffering from autism, who presented speech impediment and intellectual disability, were subjected to 10
According to the World Health Organization, these 12 bacteria are in desperate need of subduing by new antibiotics. Here's what you need to know about the bacteria and how best to prevent coming into contact with them.
Today WHO released a priority list of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that pose the most
Health consumers were recently polled about which treatment they chose for treating chronic pain and mental health issues. Was it opioids and other medications or cannabis, researchers wanted to find out.
The experiment was the first of a kind that allowed patients access to pain and other medications as well as cannabis/

Stem cells derived neuronal networks grown on a chip as an alternative to animal testing
Scientists at the Institute for Infectious Diseases, University of Bern have developed an in vitro stem cell-based bioassay grown on multi-electrode arrays capable of detecting the biological activity of Clostridium botulinum neurotoxins. Their assay could serve in minimizing animal experiments as well as provide a physiological relevant platform for drug-screening of neuroactive compounds. Tue, 28 Feb 2017 08:15:33 EST
Activated T-cells drive post-heart attack heart failure
Chronic inflammation after a heart attack can promote heart failure and death. University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers have now shown that activated T-cells—part of the immune system's inflammatory response—are both necessary and sufficient to produce such heart failure.
