In this blog-article, i will review the five ways that meditation changes the brain, and how those changes lead to happy benefits. (Section A). Thereafter, I will analyse the role of meditation practice in the expansion of healthy lifespans (longevity) (Section B) Section A Multiple Benefits from Meditation 1. Meditation keeps the hippocampus healthy to enhance learning and memory. In 2011, researchers
A Few Other Reasons why Animal foods tend to be Deleterious to One's Health Animal Cholesterol and saturated fats are not the only problems with animal foods. Another reason is associated with carnitine in meat. In this perspective, a research team at the Cleveland Clinic found that within 24 hours of carnitine consumption (eating a sirloin steak), certain gut bacteria metabolize the carnitine
New discoveries on resveratrol analogs rejuvenating aging human cells, lengthening their telomeres and making them look and behave younger. In this blog-article, I will first examine these new findings (Section A) and thereafter, weight its significance in terms of optimizing longevity. (Section B) Section A A team led by Professor Lorna Harries at the University of Exeter has discovered a
In this article-blog, i will review the litterature on MTOR (Section A) and then analyses MTOR pathway in relation to the aging process (Section B) and cancer (Section C) Text under construction Section A Over the last decade, more than 5,000 papers have been published about TOR, an enzyme inhibited by the drug rapamycin—a drug used experimentally to extend lifespan,
TEXT UNDER CONSTRUCTION It’s right there, the first of the Four Noble Truths of the Buddha: “Existence is suffering.” If that’s not your bag, you can turn to the wisdom of Ecclesiastes, the preacher who said, “I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.” In the Gospel
Text under construction Friends become increasingly important to health and happiness as people age, according to new research in the journal Personal Relationships. They're so crucial, in fact, that having supportive friendships in old age was found to be a stronger predictor of wellbeing than having strong family connections. The new paper explores the findings of two studies about relationships.
TEXT UNDER CONSTRUCTION, pending Sometime in late 2015, researchers seemed to deliver a blow to Pollyannas everywhere. The news? Happy people did not live longer than sad people, after adjusting for factors like the state of a person's health. The study, published in prestigious medical journal The Lancet, looked at survey results from nearly 720,000 women and concluded that happiness,
In this blog-article, i will review one of red wine's key health promoting molecules, proanthocyanidins, also known as pygnogenol. As long as wine is made traditionally with its skin and especially grape seeds in the fermentation bin, these antioxidant molecules will bestow upon red wine lots of health benefits. (Section A). Thereafter, I will analyse its therapeutic relevance and clinical dosing.
I just heard a reputed vegan doctor assert that wine increases bad fat, spikes inflammation and is a major risk factor for CVD. Thus, in this blog-article, ill review some of the facts regarding this topic (Section A) and in a second section, mention how wine should be used (Section B). Section A Debunking the Myth that moderate quality wine
In this blog article, i will first look at the History of the research on aging (Section A) and follow up with an update on where we are today. (Section B) Aging Research in History Although not many people will admit it, the fear of aging and death is extremely common (1). Throughout history, our fascination with mortality has contributed
According to the Hayflick limit, most of our cells divide from 50 to 70 times. With each division, the telomeres shorten. 70 population doublings equates to approximately 120 years of life. Progenitor cells (also called stem cells) and differentiated cells are thus limited to Hayflick's limit of 70 population doublings. Although adult-derived stem cells, (i.e., totipotent stem cells, pluripotent stem
