Tart cherries have powerful anti-inflammatory benefits. According to new research from Oregon Health & Science University presented at the American College of Sports Medicine Conference (ACSM) in San Francisco, tart cherries have the “highest anti-inflammatory content of any food” and can help people with arthritis manage their disease long-term without pain medications.
Michigan researchers had previously shown that a cherry-enriched diet not only reduced overall body inflammation, but also reduced inflammation at key sites (belly fat, heart) known to affect heart disease risk in the obese. (more…)
Now that you know about the new SILENT KILLER lurking in the shadows and around every corner of YOUR body, next you need to learn ways to STOP this KILLER from destroying your cells.
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to understand how different ways of fighting INFLAMMATION can cost you $$$.
Give me a minute to explain.
To fight inflammation and stop it in its tracks, you need two inflammatory fighting ingredients (YOUR “MISSILES”) and plenty of cash in your RESERVE. (more…)
A new study with breast cancer patients has widespread implications for any person with chronic pain—high-dose vitamin D1 may be able to significantly reduce the pain. (more…)
It’s rare to see a drug that is shown, in study after study, to have remarkable and significant anti-cancer properties both in vivo and in vitro. But curcumin is such a drug, and it induces tumor apoptosis with no apparent toxicity.
To get just a sampling of how thoroughly curcumin has been studies in cancer over the past few years, consider the following. (more…)
You could take vitamin D and achieve a desirable blood level of 25-hydroxy vitamin D (I aim for 60-70 ng/ml), or you could:
–Take Actos to mimic the enhanced insulin sensitivity generated by vitamin D
–Take lisinopril to mimic the angiotensin-converting enzyme blocking, antihypertensive effect of vitamin D
–Take Fosamax or Boniva to mimic the bone density-increasing effect of vitamin D
–Take Celexa or other SSRI antidepressants to mimic the mood-elevating and winter “blues”-relieving effect of vitamin D
—Take Niaspan to mimic the HDL-increasing, small LDL-reducing effect of vitamin D
–Take naproxen to mimic the pain-relieving effect of vitamin D (more…)
Proteolytic enzymes are specific enzymes that metabolize protein. These enzymes are naturally produced by the human body and other living organisms and help carry out essential functions. Supplementing with these enzymes has shown to have a favorable anti-inflammatory effect on the tissues of the body. A unique enzyme named serratiopeptidase is now emerging as one of the most potent anti-inflammatory supplements. (more…)
