A Memory Marvel | Sale

From eNewsletter 4/26/2023

DID YOU KNOW that a study of more than 6,000 cognitively healthy participants aged 40 to 73 found people who consumed more than 550 milligrams of total magnesium each day had a brain age that was approximately one year younger by the time they reached 55 compared with normal magnesium intake of about 350 milligrams a day? The European Journal of Nutrition study found the 41 percent increase in magnesium intake could lead to less age-related brain shrinkage. One adverse impact on magnesium stores is inflammation. A study in Nutrients found that levels of C-reactive protein at 3 or higher were associated with depleting magnesium and increasing the risk for depression. This is why we work so hard with clients to keep inflammation under control.

Optimize Your Urinary System

Steve: For those with kidney, urinary tract, or prostate distress, any bit of actionable advice can be helpful. Consequently, the idea is to prevent any distress from developing. Urinary Tract It's pretty simple advice. Eat organic as much as possible and reduce your risk of urinary tract infection (UTI). More than half a million UTIs are attributed to contamination of conventional animal protein, and to a lesser degree produce, according to a study from JACEP Open. Kidneys Supplementing with sodium bicarbonate (or a better option would be sodium and potassium bicarbonate) was linked to reducing risk of kidney-related metabolic acidosis, according to a study in The Lancet. A Frontiers of Nutrition study found that the protective effect of caffeine intake from coffee on kidney stone formation was more significant than that of caffeine from non-coffee sources. Treatment with focused ultrasound safely led to the repositioning and rupture of a majority of stones in the ureter in awake patients, as reported in The Journal of Urology. This was the first human trial in awake subjects for nonsurgically facilitating ureteral stone clearance, and the results of limited patient discomfort and stone motion in 66% of treated patients the authors claimed was "almost too good to be true," Prostate Men with higher intake of dairy foods, but not nondairy calcium, had a higher risk of prostate cancer. Associations suggest the greatest increases in risk were at relatively low doses, according to the study from The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. New research in the journal Cancers shows that men who stick to a predominantly Mediterranean diet are less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer. The diet also improved their chances of recovery if they had prostate cancer. Filter your water. A study in Environmental Health Perspectives found tap water high in synthetic nitrates increased the risk of prostate cancer.
