The spike protein outer shell of the coronavirus contains “prion-like regions” that give the virus very high adhesion to ACE2 receptors in the human body. This has been documented by a study entitled, “SARS-CoV-2 Prion-Like Domains in Spike Proteins Enable Higher Affinity to ACE2,” published by the Human Microbiology Institute: Continue reading →
Probiotics are known for their abilities to heal your digestive woes and promote a healthy gastrointestinal system. But did you know that new research shows that can impact whole body healthy? In fact, Continue reading →
Next time you are savoring a creamy cup of Indian chai tea, here’s something to ponder: The characteristic spicy flavor is also what makes chai outrageously healthy. Cinnamon, ginger, clove, anise and black tea are super foods in their own right Continue reading →
Have you ever participated in a sporting match of any kind where your next move could win it all…or lose the game for you? Even if you are not an athlete, that kind of pressure can appear at many points in life, from making a presentation before a large audience at work to taking an important test. If you ever worry about choking at a key moment, there is some good new for you. A recent study found a very easy, Continue reading →
With colder weather starting to roll in and the holidays around the corner, many of us may already be struggling with conflicts about eating carbohydrate-rich comfort foods and sugary holiday treats. The war against refined sugar and its sneaky siblings — simple carbohydrates (such as bread and pasta) — is certainly justified. Of course, we need some carbohydrates for energy, brain function and other processes, but these can be obtained from eating fruits, many vegetables, whole grains and legumes. Continue reading →
The value placed on human life in American society today is in rapid decline. The mindset in vogue today is one that looks at mentally- or developmentally-impaired individuals as less than human, and not worthy of receiving the same care and dignifying treatment as everyone else. Even many so-called doctors have fallen for this eugenicist propaganda, denying life-saving transplants to individuals considered to have less-than-optimal brain function. Continue reading →
Blueberries, strawberries and acai berries activate a natural brain mechanism to clean up proteins linked to memory loss in the elderly, U.S. researchers say.
Shibu Poulose and the late James Joseph — both of the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging in Boston — focused on why nerve function declines with aging. Cells called microglia are the housekeepers and in a process called autophagy, they remove and recycle biochemical debris that otherwise would interfere with brain function, Poulose says.
“But in aging, microglia fail to do their work and debris builds up,” Poulose says in a statement. “In addition, the microglia become over-activated and actually begin to damage healthy cells in the brain. Our research suggests that the polyphenolics in berries have a rescuing effect. They seem to restore the normal housekeeping function. These findings are the first to show these effects of berries.”
