Kombucha tea is a little different from regular tea. It’s a special concoction made from tea, sugar, bacteria and yeast. This drink is sometimes called kombucha mushroom tea. Kombucha isn’t actually a mushroom though — it’s a colony of bacteria and yeast. Kombucha tea is made by adding this colony of bacteria and yeast to sugar and tea, and allowing the mix to ferment. The tea contains vinegar, B vitamins and a host of other chemical compounds.

There have been many health benefits attributed to Kombucha tea, but little scientific evidence to back up these claims. It might be worthwhile, therefore, to take a look at the results of a new clinical trial that verifies at least one health benefit associated with the fermented drink: improved liver health.

Researchers at the Department of Life Sciences and Biotechnology in Jadavpur University, India, investigated the antioxidant property of kombucha tea. Specifically, the researchers wanted to know how kombucha tea would perform when pitted against cytotoxicity induced by tertiary butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) in mice liver cells. TBPH is organic peroxide that causes oxidative stress resulting in organ disease.

The researchers found that exposure to TBHP  Continue reading

There is no question that patients are inquiring more and more about how natural medicine could help lower their blood pressure. There is a shift away from drugs happening. With this in mind, researchers conducted a review of evidence for a wide range of natural hypertension solutions.

Overall, there is not enough proof to recommend any alternative medicine on a regular basis. But, on a person- by-person basis, they believe that natural medicine could be very useful. Every person is different, and every person may react to a medicine in different ways.

Here are the top alternative remedies — some natural, some not –researchers have identified:

1. Lifestyle: They emphasize that all patients with hypertension should adhere to the low-salt DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet, which is high in fiber and low in fats and incorporates lots of fruits and vegetables.

Recent research suggests that a dietary supplement containing molasses extract may contribute to the battle against obesity. The study, conducted by Richard Weisinger, Ph.D., will be presented at the upcoming meeting of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior (SSIB), and may change the way people look at weight management.

Weisinger took two groups of mice and put both on a high fat diet. He supplemented each group’s diet with either 2 percent or 4 percent molasses extract. Twelve weeks later, the mice who were on the 4 percent extract diet had lower body weight and a decrease in a hormone produced by fat cells, all the while consuming similar amounts of fat as the other mice.

“The addition of molasses extract to a high fat diet  Continue reading
