UVB-Exposed Mushrooms Shown To Have Higher Vitamin D Content

Considering the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in the U.S. and abroad, researchers and nutritionists have been working on ways to increase consumption of the vital nutrient. A study that was published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry suggests that one solution may lie in fungi exposed to ultraviolet light.

In a trial, a team of researchers compared the vitamin D content of button mushrooms kept in the dark, fungi exposed to natural sunlight and mushrooms that were exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) light.

The scientists observed a significant increase in vitamin D for the UVB-exposed vegetables — about 700 percent, in fact. Other nutrients found in the mushrooms, Continue reading

California to Require Labeling for all GMO Salmon

The miserable failure of both the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to stand up for the interests of the people and require proper labeling of AquaBounty’s genetically-modified (GM) salmon, which is set to be approved soon, has led California legislators to take matters into their own hands.

Astaxanthin a Natural Pigment Helps Prevent Dementia

Scientists have documented that daily supplements of the natural pigment astaxanthin reduces the accumulation of compounds called phospholipid hydroperoxides (PLOOH) which are known to accumulate abnormally in the red blood cells (erythrocytes) of people with dementia. Bottom line: the researchers from Tohoku University who are behind the study believe the pink pigment may well “contribute to the prevention of dementia.”

That’s great news because the mind-robbing malady known as dementia is a growing problem in the U.S. — and mainstream medicine and Big Pharma have come up with little help and hope for the condition. In fact, according to the Alzheimer’s Association, about 5.4 million Americans currently have the best known and most feared kind of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease (AD). That number is expected to rise as the population ages.

Astaxanthin is a phytochemical known as a carotenoid. Like many carotenoids, it is a colorful, fat soluble pigment. Astaxanthin is found  Continue reading
