Friendly Flora Improves Fatty Liver Disease

Fifty-two patients diagnosed with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease were placed on a lifestyle improvement plan and probiotic/prebiotic supplement twice a day for 28 weeks; the control group of patients only did lifestyle improvement. At the end of the study, the supplemented group improved their liver enzymes, reduced liver inflammation, and had a 300% reduction in the formation of fibrous tissue liver injury, compared to the control group. This is the latest study highlighting the extreme importance of digestive health to overall metabolic health. Your digestive tract and liver have theirRead More

Green Tea Extract Lowers Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Blood Sugar & Inflammation

A dietary supplement of green tea has now been shown to help lower multiple factors associated with the metabolic syndrome in overweight adults. The 56 participants in this study were classified as obese, insulin resistant, and hypertensive, meaning they already had multiple difficult metabolic issues similar to millions of Americans. Amazingly they took a relatively small daily amount of green tea extract standardized for 208 mg of the most potent antioxidant catechin, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).  After three months of supplementation they had statistically significant reductions in both systolic and diastolicRead More

A Multi-Strain Friendly Flora Helps Diabetic Patients

Many metabolic problems are adversely influenced by what is going on in the digestive tract. Adverse bacterial and Candida populations produce toxic byproducts and phantom metabolic signals that interfere with healthy metabolic function throughout the body. A new study shows that a multi-strain probiotic supplement helps improve the blood sugar metabolism in diabetic individuals. Participants consumed a multi-strain probiotic daily for 8 weeks. The probiotic prevented blood sugar from rising during the study period, whereas it went up 28 percent in the control group. The C-reactive protein (CRP) marker ofRead More

Grape Seed Extract’s Powerful Cardio Protection

Red grape seed extracts (GSE) are a powerful cardioprotective compound.  They strengthen your arteries/capillaries, and offer rather dramatic antioxidant protection for your arteries and heart. Also, through a number of mechanisms they reduce the likelihood that plaque will form in your arteries.  New molecular science shows that the effects of GSE are much more diverse than previously understood.  GSE works actively at the gene transcription level to promote changes favorable to cardiovascular health that include reducing inflammation and improving cholesterol and triglycerides metabolism.  They have even been found to haveRead More
