Could Thrīv’s bacteria reduce the risk of breast cancer?

Could Thrīv’s bacteria reduce the risk of breast cancer?
Thrīv Advance provides 350 million colony forming units of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum, per serving. But these aren’t just any bacteria, they are lactic acid bacteria. Lactic acid bacteria are a diverse group of microbes that feed on carbohydrates and produce lactic acid as the major end product. It is thanks to this group of organisms that we are able to enjoy the sour taste of yogurt, cheese, sauerkraut, and kimchi, to name a few commonly eaten fermented foods. More importantly, these bacteria are also some of the first to populate the infant gut, as they are present on the breast skin and in the breast milk of breastfeeding mothers. In fact, women’s breasts harbor a unique set of microbes – their own microbiome, if you will. Although most people immediately think of the gut when the microbiome is mentioned, there are numerous microbiome communities on and within the body....

Food poisoning? Feel better with some MFGM

Food poisoning? Feel better with some MFGM
No one likes being sick, especially when that sickness causes diarrhea, nausea, and bloating. It is thus unfortunate for the 58 healthy young adults participating in Bruggencate et al’s latest study, as they had to be infected with a live, but attenuated, enterotoxigenic E. coli bug that mimics food poisoning. The participants had to undergo infection after 4-weeks of supplementing with milk concentrate rich in milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) phospholipids or a sodium caseinate placebo. To blind the participants to the intervention, the supplement powders were provided alongside 250 mL of soy milk that was consumed twice per day (125 mL with breakfast and again with dinner). The participants also had to abstain from all dairy products and products containing probiotics. On the first day after infection, the participants experienced a significant increase in fecal wet weight and significant decrease in fecal dry weight, which is the confusing way of...

Lose a half pound per week with chitosan

Lose a half pound per week with chitosan
Chitosan is a popular food-based supplement derived from the shells of crustaceans and the cell walls of mushrooms, advertised to lower blood cholesterol levels and aid weight loss through reducing the absorption of dietary fat. Whether these claims hold up in the absence of dietary modifications was recently investigated by Trivedi et al, who recruited 86 middle-aged, overweight and obese adults to consume 2.5 grams of chitosan or placebo per day for 90 days. The randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled study was simple – have the participants consume one capsule of their supplement in the morning, 2 capsules 15 min before lunch, and 2 capsules 15 min before dinner with a glass of water. Each capsule contained 500 mg of chitosan or cellulose (placebo). The chitosan group showed a significant 2% weight loss (on average) after 45 days, which increased to a 4% weight loss by 90 days. Notably, one-third of the chitosan group had...

What Every NFL Player Should Know About Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury

What Every NFL Player Should Know About Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury
Is there a way to reverse the brain damage done by concussion and TBI within hours after the occurrence? The science on this protein peptide sure looks like there is. So should NFL players be using this? And could this save the NFL from millions of dollars of liability? While we can all pontificate about the plight of young football players in middle school and high school and the willingness of parents to allow their children to suffer a potential concussion and TBI, when it comes to consenting adults the issues are quite different. Pro football players must weigh the risk versus reward differently. When the potential to secure a multimillion dollar contract plays into the scenario consenting adults will always choose a high-risk potential to achieve greater progress and fame in their chosen sport. With the potential for the first blood test that will be able to quickly identify if...

Is the RDA for vitamin D sufficient? New analysis suggests you may need 5-fold more.

Is the RDA for vitamin D sufficient? New analysis suggests you may need 5-fold more.
The recommended daily allowances (RDAs) for vitamins and minerals were first established by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in 1943. There have since been small changes to incorporate emerging scientific knowledge, but on the whole they have remained relatively constant. Perhaps the most notable change came in 2010, when the IOM tripled their recommendation for vitamin D from 200 to 600 IU daily for all people aged 1-70 years. By definition, an RDA for a nutrient is set at an intake level whereby it satisfies the requirement for 97.5% of the population. Statistically, this is done by finding the amount that is adequate for half the population (called the estimated average requirement, or EAR) and having the RDA be 2 standard deviations above it. According the IOM, a satisfactory requirement achieves serum vitamin D (25OHD) levels of at least 20 ng/mL. Both the target 25OHD levels and the RDA have come...
