7 Amazing Medicinal Properties of the Banana

From GreenMedInfo.com

... many do not realize that the banana is more than just an exceptionally starch-rich fruit, but has a complex biochemistry, with pharmacologically active properties.

Bananas actually contain the catecholamines dopamine and norepinephrine, the very same adrenal hormones released in the human body when it undergoes the typical "fight-or-flight" response. It is believed that the banana plant uses the biosynthetic pathway for catecholamines when under the stress of attack to fight off infectious pathogens such as in crown rot disease.

Some varieties excrete a form of serotonin in their sap, and there is even mention in the biomedical literature of the discovery of the NSAID drug naproxen (trade name Aleve) within the banana cultivar Musa acuminate.

... the banana has a secret second life. It has been observed slyly practicing medicine without a license, and indeed, seems readily equipped with the following nutritional "super powers".... Read the entire article.

7 Natural Painkillers in the Kitchen

From Care2.com

Blueberries:
Research shows that 1 cup of blueberries can ward off up to 60% of urinary tract infections. The secret weapon here is antioxidants, which kill the free radicals that inflame the digestive lining. So eating blueberries can keep you free from peptic ulcers, digestive discomfort, and bladder infections.

Grapes:
An Ohio University research study shows that 1 cup of grapes eaten daily can bring relief from backache. That’s because grapes contain nutrients that increase blood circulation to the lower back, which in turn alleviates pain.

Pineapple:
The bromelain in pineapple is known to ease bloated tummy and heaviness. It also improves circulation, stopping cramps and inhibiting inflammation. It may help rid the body of inflammatory compounds that contribute to arthritis.

Oats:
They have been seen to play a role in easing menstrual cramps and bring relief from endometriosis. Oats are loaded with the anti-cramping mineral magnesium. They are also one of the best sources of dietary zinc for women who suffer from painful periods. Read the entire article.

5 Ways To Make Exercise a Habit


Proper nutrition through a balanced diet and appropriate food supplementation lays a great foundation for health. But it will only take you so far.

For optimal health, regular exercise is a must. Although "regular" is much easier said than done. Even though most people recognize the need for exercise, making and keeping an exercise habit is challenging for a lot of us. Here are a few tips to help you develop this essential habit.

Make It Fun

There’s no one “right” way to get your exercise, so don’t feel like you have to lift weights or run for miles each day. Exercise can be anything from walking briskly around your neighborhood to dancing in your living room.

If you don’t like doing certain activities, calling it “exercise” won’t make it any easier. In fact, you’ll be even less likely to keep at it. Find an activity that you enjoy and stick with it.

Start Small

Most people jump right into their next fitness routine and go full bore for 45 minutes to an hour, and then within a week they’ve already given up because they’re too tired, sore and miserable to want to do it again.

Don’t let this happen to you! Ideally, you’ll want to exercise for 20-30 minutes a day. When you’re first starting out, however, go for 10 minutes at a time. Set smaller, near-term goals that you know you can reach to build your confidence and your stamina. As you become more accustomed to regular activity, increase you workload accordingly.

Reward Showing Up

Whether it’s a quiet soak in the tub, a night out, or a sweet snack—don’t go overboard here—you’ll want to incentivize your exercise routine by rewarding yourself with a special treat. At first you might set rewards just for having exercised.

As you get into your habit, reward yourself for reaching certain milestones or achievements.

Schedule Exercise for Quiet Time

Make exercise a priority by scheduling it for times with minimal distractions. If you know your friend usually calls around 6 p.m. and that they’ll talk for an hour while you work on getting dinner ready and help the kids finish their homework, then don’t schedule your exercise for 6:15.

Things will always come up—that’s just part of life—but by limiting interruptions, you’ll greatly increase your chances of sticking to your habit.

Get a Buddy

We’ve all heard that misery loves company. Well success does, too. Finding someone to exercise with, whether it’s your spouse, a friend, or even your kids, is a great way to strengthen your commitment.

Developing any good habit—not just exercise—can be a challenge, but having a plan makes it much easier to tackle. For more ideas on how to make and keep your exercise habit, check out this article.

It’s also important to make sure your body gets all the nutrients it needs to build muscle and support an active lifestyle. Click here for suggestions on supplements that give your body the right nutrients for your activity levels.

Alpha acids are strong antioxidants, recently linked to support the body's natural response to inflammation and pain.

Red Yeast Rice - Cholesterol

Red yeast rice, a product of rice fermented with Monascus purpureus yeast, has long been used in China as both a food and medicinal substance. Recently, it was discovered that red yeast rice contains substances that are similar to prescription medications that lower cholesterol.

In a 12-week, controlled study at the Center for Human Nutrition, UCLA School of Medicine, red yeast rice was found to significantly reduce total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides compared with placebo, while HDL cholesterol levels remained unchanged. Taking red yeast rice may lower the risk of heart disease by helping to manage cholesterol levels.

Turmeric Reduces Bypass Heart Attack Risk 56%

From GreenMedInfo.com

According to the study, "it is well established that myocardial infarction (MI) associated with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) predicts a poor outcome. Nevertheless, cardioprotective therapies to limit myocardial injury after CABG are lacking."

The researchers hypothesized that since preclinical research shows curcuminoids decrease proinflammatory cytokines during cardiopulmonary bypass surgery and decrease the occurrence of cardiac cell death, they may provide a much-needed therapy.

The primary end point was the incidence of in-hospital myocardial infarction, which was found to be decreased from 30.0% in the placebo group to 13.1% in the curcuminoid group -- a 56% relative risk reduction. Read the entire article.

Exercise Protects Aging Brains Better

From WebMd.com

People who stayed physically active into old age tended to have larger brains than those who did not exercise in the study, published today in the journal Neurology.

The brain typically shrinks in late adulthood, and this shrinkage is believed to play a role in age-related memory decline. The new research is the latest to suggest that exercise is good for the brain as well as the body.

“It is pretty clear that exercise is one of the most potent things we can do to protect our brain as we age,” says University of Pittsburgh exercise and aging researcher Kirk Erickson, PhD, who was not involved with the study.  Read the entire article.

Consumer Reports: Bugs & Drugs in Pork

Consumer Reports recently released a study in which they analyzed U.S. retail pork.  

They found trace levels of an adrenaline-like drug called ractopamine in about 20% of the pork samples.  The food borne bacteria, Yersina, was found in 66% of pork samples.

The National Pork Producers Council tried to address concerns about ractopamine by noting that the levels in meat of this muscle growth promoter, which is fed to pigs in the form of Paylean™ and turkeys in the form of Topmax™, were below the limit set by the UN Codex Commission this summer.

What they didn’t mention was that due to outstanding safety concerns, the Commission’s drug residue limit only passed by a single vote out of 143 ballots cast.

The Codex Commission based this drug residue limit in meat on the only human data available, a study of just six people that wasn’t designed to establish safety. At higher doses, the study subjects reported their hearts racing and pounding—so much so that one subject had to be withdrawn from the study. At a lower dose, though, no cardiac changes were noted. So that’s the dose the Codex Commission used to calculate the maximum allowable meat residue and acceptable human daily intake levels.

The discovery of Yersinia in pork is no surprise. Pigs are considered to be to be the main reservoir for Yersinia enterocolitica and pork products the main source of human infection. While most foodborne pathogens come from a variety of sources, 100 percent of the attributable Yersinia outbreaks reported in the United States from 1999 through 2008 were caused by pork. What was a surprise is the level of contamination of the U.S. pork supply—69 percent of samples tested positive—and the level of antibiotic resistance. Ninety percent of the Yersinia bacteria found contaminating the pork was resistant to one or more antibiotics.

In most cases, Yersinia food poisoning causes an acute “stomach flu” characterized by fever, abdominal pain, and often bloody diarrhea. Severe cases are frequently confused with appendicitis, leading to unnecessary emergency surgery.

Long-term complications of infection include chronic inflammation of the eyes, kidneys, heart, and joints. Within a year of a bout of Yersinia food poisoning, victims appear to have a 47-fold higher risk of coming down with autoimmune arthritis.

The bacteria may also play a role in triggering an autoimmune thyroid condition known as Graves’ disease. View View the video and read the entire article.

5-HTP - Regulates Appetite, Mood & Sleep

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) - What a long name for such a great product.


You know that feeling of satiety, contentment and restfulness that you feel after your Thanksgiving meal? It’s primarily attributed to tryptophan, an essential amino acid found in turkey that plays a role in the nervous system promoting restfulness, relaxation and sleep.

5-HTP is a byproduct of the metabolism of tryptophan and a precursor to serotonin, an important neurotransmitter that helps regulate appetite, mood and sleep. 5-Hydroxytryptophan is converted into serotonin in the body to help elevate mood, assist in controlling hunger and promote restful sleep.

CDC Hyping Flu Season

We've been seeing huge banners for flu shots at a variety of locations. If they were so critical to have, why would they need to promote them so heavily?

From NaturalNews.com

In truth, the CDC possesses no special psychic abilities, nor can the agency truly say for sure whether or not getting the flu vaccine will protect people from this supposedly "very deadly" flu strain. The only thing the CDC can do, it turns out, is scare people into getting the flu shot by claiming this year's flu will be more severe than normal, and that the vaccine is the only remedy. But you can only cry wolf so many times before people start ignoring you (remember the failed swine flu "pandemic?").

Then, there is the inconvenient fact that flu shots do not even work, a fact that was revealed in a 2011 study published in the peer-reviewed journal The Lancet. Besides allowing their muscles to be injected with high levels of aluminum, formaldehyde, monosodium glutamate (MSG), mercury (Thimerosal) and other toxins, people who get flu shots only derive a 1.5 percent decreased risk of contracting the flu in a best case scenario, the study found. (http://www.naturalnews.com)

This landmark study and many others that have arrived at unfavorable outcomes for flu vaccines are widely available online these days ... read more.

Niacin (Vitamin B3) Beats Prescription Zetia for Cholesterol

From GreenMedinfo.com

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that niacin, also known as vitamin B3, is better for reducing cholesterol and preventing heart disease than Merck & Co., Inc.'s prescription medication Zetia.

Researchers found that over a 14 month period niacin was significantly more effective at reducing artery plaque than ezetimibe, the active ingredient in Zetia. In addition, niacin was found more effective than Zetia at decreasing the number of heart attacks.

Zetia is a medication used in conjunction with statins to try to further lower levels of the so-called bad LDL cholesterol in the blood. It claims to work by blocking the absorption of cholesterol in the digestive track. Read the entire article.

Sweet Potato: Vegetable #1 Ranking in Nutrition

From SteadyHealth.com

Sweet potatoes are high in complex carbohydrates, beta carotene, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and dietary fiber.

Compared to other vegetables, the sweet potato ranks highest in nutrition; the high content of fiber and complex carbohydrates, vitamins A and C, calcium, protein, and iron rank it number one in nutrition with the white potato coming in second.

The different varieties of sweet potato have varying amounts of beta carotene; sweet potatoes that are dark orange have more than those with a lighter colored flesh. Because they are so rich in Vitamin A the cultivation of dark colored sweet potatoes is being encouraged in counties such as Africa where they lack sufficient amounts of Vitamin A and cause major health issues.

Studies have shown that sweet potatoes might be a very beneficial food for individuals whom are diagnosed with diabetes; in the animal studies preformed, sweet potatoes were shown to help stabilize the blood sugar levels and help to lower insulin resistance. Read the entire article.

Saffron vs. Prozac For Depression

From Care2.com

Millions of Americans suffer from depression every year, a disabling disease that can end up fatal due to suicide. See my NutritionFacts.org video pick above for the head-to-head test of the simple spice versus the drug Prozac for the treatment of clinical depression.

Studies have found less depression among vegetarians, but maybe people who are happier go on to eat healthier rather than the other way around. One can’t prove cause and effect unless you put that to the test too, which was done this year. Researchers found that by removing all meat, fish, poultry, and eggs from people’s diets they could significantly improve mood scores after just two weeks! It can take drugs like Prozac a month or more to take effect.

.... there’s serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, and all sorts of human neurotransmitters in plants. So much so that there’s been a call to start treating depression with “high-content sources of serotonin” such as pineapples, bananas, kiwis, plums, and tomatoes. And what are the side effects–maybe you’ll get a seed stuck in your teeth or something.  Read the entire article.

Waterless Lifetime Cookware


 Waterless Cooking

Waterless cooking is the healthiest way to prepare your food. And NatureSeal cookware provides the best system for waterless cooking. It's perfect for health-conscious people who want to eliminate unnecessary oils and fats from the cooking process. When you cook foods using their own natural juices, you retain more of the vitamins, minerals, nutrients, color and taste.

A New Dimension in Natural Food Preparation

Seal in Nature’s goodness with this top-of-the-line waterless cookware designed to last a lifetime. Features five-ply aluminum core, stainless-steel construction, low-temperature cooking to preserve nutrients and energy-efficient operation.

No Other Cookware Can Compare to NatureSeal Quality

• Unconditional lifetime warranty—including handles, tops and knobs.
• 5-ply full-body construction.
• Nicromium surgical stainless steel inside and out.
• Easy cleaning and durability.
• Flame guards on all handles.
• Brass ferrules/stainless-steel connections to prevent stripping and rusting.
• Cut and polished rims for best vapor seal.
• Handles and knobs dishwasher/oven safe up to 350 degrees F.

Use this beautiful, easy-to-clean cookware for low-temperature, even cooking to maximize food value, taste and aroma!  Check out NatureSeal cookware.

Lifetime Warranty

Handles and Knobs - The handles are more ergonomic, stylish, cooler-to-the touch and safer. The brackets that hold these handles in place have been improved for added strength and for maintaining a tighter fit to the pan and they're removable! The stainless steel heat guards are larger - to keep the handles cooler when cooking. And now you can hang your NatureSeal cookware in the kitchen easily.

Covers - NatureSeal cookware has a contemporary-styled cover design, and it's curved slightly. This makes the covers stronger and allows them to form a more effective moisture seal. Flipping these covers over will allow for easy stack cooking.

Construction Features
NatureSeal cookware is 5-ply construction, made using the finest 304 stainless steel. The uniform engineering of NatureSeal still allows you to "stack cook" your meals.  For example, place a roaster in the 8-quart pan, brown on both sides and add onions. Then, place the high dome cover on top of the roaster. In a 3-quart pan, place vegetables such as broccoli, corn and sliced carrots. Cover and place over medium heat. When the lid is hot to the touch, turn the burner off and stack the 3 quart pan on top of the high dome cover and it will continue cooking!

This is the last set of cookware you will ever need to buy! NatureSeal is designed to last a lifetime!

Product Review 

Our family has had this cookware since the mid-80's and it's as tough and durable as it was when we first bought it.  In that time I've had one knob on a lid break and called the company and one was immediately sent out to me.  I've not found that kind of a guarantee on any other cookware.  With the stainless steel scouring powder, I can make it look bright and new anytime I want.  What an investment this was after the first 7 years of marriage buying and replacing pots and pans.  Thank you for quality! -- Donna L. Watkins

10 Things That Make You Feel Old

From Care2.com

... the notion of aging as an uncontrollable, unstoppable force may, in fact, be faulty. According to Larry Matson, Ed.D, once a person reaches their physical peak (somewhere between 30 and 35 years old) less than one percent of physical and mental decline each year can be attributed to the aging process alone.

“We think it’s normal to be overweight at 40, have multiple chronic diseases at 60 and be totally dependent at 70,” he says. “But age is really a measure of time, not how ‘old’ we are.” How to Avoid Feeling Your Age Matson provides a list of the factors that cause people to physically and mentally feel the effects of advancing years—and simple tips for reducing their impact ...

Turmeric: Regenerate Diabetic Liver Function

From GreenMedInfo.com

Groundbreaking new research published in the Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand found that curcumin, the primary polyphenol in turmeric, is capable of repairing and even regenerating liver tissues.

Curcumin is actually one of the world's most thoroughly studied and well-characterized natural compounds, with over 5100 references in peer-reviewed publications. Considering its remarkably wide range of therapeutic benefits, it is not surprising that curcumin has been researched to either prevent or treat, liver disease. Read the entire article.
