Mineral Mitigates Migraines

Folate, abundant in green leafy vegetables such as spinach, may reduce migraine frequency.

A debilitating neurovascular disorder, migraine raises a person’s risks of cardiovascular disease and endothelial dysfunction.  Lyn R. Griffiths, from Queensland University of Technology (Australia), and colleagues studied 41 women who suffered from migraine with aura, to investigate their intake of dietary folate in relation to migraine symptoms.

Huge New Study Proves That Eating Berries Promotes Weight Loss

(NaturalNews) Middle-age-spread is a real issue for both men and women who step into their 40s. As the metabolism slows down with age, and the muscle mass is reduced as well, it's increasingly difficult for the body to burn fat and stay fit. Although some handle it better than others, middle age is far from a breezy walk through the park for most people. Under these stressful circumstances, some people find comfort in food or alcohol, both of which also tend to show around the waist.

But it's not all hopeless for those trying to fight the dreaded middle-age-spread. According to a new study of large proportions published in the journal BMJ, a minor change in diet can actually help you stay slim throughout your 40s.

Antioxidant Intake from Dietary and Supplemental Sources Associated with Improved Atherogenic Blood Profile

A study reported in the journal Nutrients found an association between total antioxidant capacity (TAC, a measure of antioxidants present in the diet) and reduced cardiovascular risk factors in adults residing in the U.S.

Researchers at the University of Connecticut analyzed data from 4,039 men and women enrolled in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2007-2012. Total antioxidant intake from food and dietary supplements was calculated from subject responses to two 24-hour dietary recall questionnaires.

Researchers Explore Role of Vitamin D in Remyelination

Research reported in the Journal of Cell Biology reveals a role for vitamin D in remyelination of the central nervous system.

"Remyelination involves the generation of new myelin sheath–forming oligodendrocytes after primary demyelination in the central nervous system," explain Robin J. M. Franklin of the University of Cambridge and colleagues. "In common with other regenerative processes, remyelination efficiency declines with aging, with the result that in chronic demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS), remyelination becomes ineffective."

Obesity Leads to Early Death Regardless of Physical Exercise Ability, Researchers Find

(NaturalNews) Obese people who are physically fit are still significantly more likely to die young than people of normal weight who are in poor shape, according to new study in the International Journal of Epidemiology.

"In recent years, the concept of 'fat but fit' has emerged, implying that high fitness can compensate for obesity," the researchers write.

The new findings add to a growing body of evidence increasingly refuting this idea.

Increased Brain Oxidation, Cognitive Dysfunction Associated with Vitamin E Deficiency

An article appearing in the Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology reports the outcome of a study conducted at Japan's Shibaura Institute of Technology of an increase in cognitive dysfunction in vitamin E deficient mice. Animals that experienced long term deficiency exhibited an increase in brain lipid peroxidation, indicating that a continual lack of vitamin E, a well-known antioxidant, may accelerate brain oxidation.
