Antioxidants from Food – The Five Best Sources

This Powerful Acid Could Stave Off Deadly Disease

Lysine is an essential amino acid, meaning your body can’t manufacture it — you need to get it in your diet. Lysine is needed for growth and to help maintain nitrogen balance in your body. While it’s true that most people get adequate lysine in their diets, vegetarians and vegans, and those who
exercise a lot may be deficient.

You’ll want to make sure that you get enough lysine, especially when you consider a new growing body of evidence. It has to do with a link between the virus that causes cold sores and the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

Medical experts think the herpes virus could be a major cause of the plaques found in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s. This has been big health news. Tons of money has been poured into Alzheimer’s research, but treatments remain elusive. No one knows how to stop amyloid plaque and neurofibrillary tangles from multiplying and damaging the brain.

Research teams have discovered that a particular herpes virus is located very specifically in amyloid plaque. In fact, an astonishing 90% of the plaque in Alzheimer’s disease sufferers’ brains contain this virus. Previous research showed that the virus is present in the brains of many elderly people and that, Continue reading

How Diabetes Could Rob You of Your Hearing

One of the big problems with diabetes is that it can trigger complications that affect certain areas of the body. A new study has delivered health news having to do with hearing: diabetes, if not controlled well, boosts your risk of hearing loss.

The health breakthrough came when examining women between 60 and 75 years of age. Researchers found that those with well-controlled diabetes had better hearing than women with poorly-controlled diabetes. They also found far worse hearing in women younger than 60 who have diabetes.

(Strangely enough, men had worse hearing loss compared to women, regardless of age or if they were diabetic.)

The normal process of aging includes a certain degree of hearing loss. But it is often accelerated in patients with diabetes — especially if blood-glucose levels are not under control with diet and medication. Their study was published last week in Miami at a medical conference.

This study Continue reading
