High salt consumption has long been linked to cardiovascular disease, but it is only now that scientists are learning about some of the mechanisms behind the phenomenon.
A meatless diet offers benefits such as lower blood pressure, a reduced risk of heart disease and hypertension. A new paper offers revised information on how vegetarianism provides extra intake of vitamins D and K for bone health, indicating that they may help prevent osteoporosis.
A new study has compared the consumption of whole grain cereal and milk with carbohydrate-based sports drinks and found the former may provide the same recovery and rehydration benefits after exercise.
According to a new article, dietary adjustments may help prevent or treat prostate cancer.
Scientists believe cognitive decline and other memory problems in humans may be mitigated through a diet rich in oily fish which are high in vitamin D.
Dietary research has provided new insights into ways of preventing or minimizing age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Heartburn and acid indigestion have never been caused by too much natural stomach acid—which is hydrochloric acid (HCl)—but by too little natural stomach acid (HCl). Low HCl levels cause problems with the digestive process, and the undigested foods ferment and produce organic acids. The fermentation and organic acids of fermentation are the cause of gas and reflux, but antacids kill both the good HCl and the bad organic acids of fermentation. And just how important is a sufficient amount of HCl? Find out when you read this article…
A California scientist has been arguing there is a good reason to conduct more in-depth research on the possible causative link between vitamin D levels and the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
Blood circulation must be continuous in order to provide nutrition to the cells of the body, to remove and transport wastes to the kidneys and lungs, and to prevent oxygen depletion which could cause damage to the organs. Blood flow is mainly hindered because of high blood viscosity, and acidic water increases blood viscosity. To maintain good health, the acid/alkaline (pH) balance in the tissues should be more alkaline, and the calcium level in our tissues must be adequate. Get the facts about keeping this intricate system in balance when you read this article…
