(Natural News) 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:
(NaturalHealth365) While certain types of mushrooms can be toxic or even deadly, the mushrooms you’ll find in the grocery store are safe and healthy to eat. In fact, the health benefits of mushrooms appear to impact everything from cognition to gut health.
(NaturalHealth365) There is nothing particularly attractive or healthful-sounding about the phrase “gut bacteria.” In fact, one could say it sounds fairly unappealing! (Unless you understood what we’ll tell you today.)
In truth, gut bacteria – the thriving community composed of trillions of microbes in the digestive tract – just might be the best friend your body never knew it had.
(NaturalHealth365) Chickpeas, a familiar staple at salad bars, are customarily used to accent and complement a bowl of mixed greens. But these plump, beige little legumes shouldn’t be thought of as merely a garnish to be tossed into salads.
Also known as garbanzo beans, chickpeas are gaining credibility as a true “superfood” – with research revealing that they are packed with disease-fighting micronutrients.
In fact, the diversity and power of the health benefits of chickpeas may surprise you. Here are four reasons to give chickpeas a regular place on your plate.
(NaturalHealth365) The first signs of dementia are subtle: irritability, short-temperedness, and small changes in personality that grow increasingly acute. The full-blown symptoms are anything but subtle: a loss of short and long-term memory, inability to reason, a lack of emotional control, confusion, disorientation.
Roughly 50 million people live with dementia. Experts have predicted the disease to be “the biggest health crisis of our time” and the 21st century’s leading killer.
(NaturalHealth365)Are you feeling “frazzled?” For many people, the seemingly endless stream of data from social media, online news sources and cable TV can create a mentally fatiguing sense of “information overload.” But, an assortment of natural brain nutrients may be able to help.
Scientific research shows that these nootropic (brain function-enhancing) compounds can speed up brain processing, increase alertness and motivation, improve memory, diminish anxiety and stress and even fight cognitive decline.
In other words, these supplements can help to “supercharge” cognitive function – while promoting clarity, focus and a sense of calm. Let’s take a look at four of the very best brain nutrients for sharpening mental abilities and combating tension. →
(NaturalHealth365)Over five million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. While most people think of Alzheimer’s as a disease that merely results in cognitive decline, the disease is the 6th leading cause of death within the U.S. and kills more than prostate cancer and breast cancer combined each year.
As heart disease deaths begin to decrease, deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have been increasing. A recent study found a link between low intake of flavonoids and dementia when compared to individuals who had a higher intake of flavonoid-rich foods. This discovery may be significant in preventing and treating this health crisis in the future. →
(Wake Up World) Your brain is under attack – disorders like depression, anxiety, headaches, ADHD, memory loss, epilepsy, dementia and other neurological disorders are becoming more prevalent than ever before. Compared with other disease areas, central nervous system disorders have had the highest failure rate for new medications in advanced clinical trials. Most of the drugs meant to treat diseases associated with the brain, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS, ADHD, autism, anxiety and depression, fail. Period.
But what if, instead of waiting to treat these issues once they’ve developed, we instead focus on preventing them in the first place?
(Collective-Evolution) The most widely used oil in the United States can be found in processed/packaged foods, in the deep fryers of countless fast food restaurants and even mixed into feed for livestock. Soybean oil is everywhere and unfortunately it is not healthy for us humans. Likely the livestock as well should not be consuming it at all. →
(Natural News) The connection between diet and neurodegenerative diseases has long been the subject of scientific investigations. Today, although much remains to be understood, researchers and clinicians acknowledge the importance of diet in preventing, delaying, or improving the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s disease is the most prevalent cause of dementia around the world. This debilitating disease is still without a cure. Hence, scientists continue to search for viable treatments that can stop and reverse its progression. →
