The Endless Coffee Debate

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Health Foods at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

A recent study about health benefits from drinking coffee is just another chapter on the never-ending debate about the beverage. Multiple studies have shown that drinking coffee can offer a variety of health benefits from improving cardiovascular health to enhancing focus and concentration. On the other hand, studies have also proved that coffee can have negative effects on health such as sleep difficulties and anxiety.

Adding more fuel to the fire, a new study suggests that increasing coffee consumption may decrease the risk for type 2 diabetes supporting previous research which has found that drinking a few cups or more each day may lower your risk, with each subsequent cup nudging up the benefit.

Published in the journal Diabetologia, this latest study was more concerned with how changing coffee consumption might affect your risk. Researchers concluded that people who upped their consumption by more than a cup per day had an 11% lower risk of type 2 diabetes compared with people whose consumption held steady.  Decreasing coffee consumption by the same amount – more than a cup a day – was associated with a 17% increased risk of type 2 diabetes. The data is based on an analysis of more than 120,000 health professionals already being followed observationally long term.  Researchers looked at the study participants’ coffee drinking habits across four years to reach their conclusions. “For type 2 diabetes, up to six cups per day is associated with lower risk,” said Shilpa Bhupathiraju, a research fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health. “As long as coffee doesn’t give you tremors, doesn’t make you jittery, it is associated with a lot of health benefits” added the lead study author.

Perhaps the story behind the study is that higher coffee consumption often results in lower consumption of sodas, lattes, frappuccinos, and other sugary drinks, consequently decreasing the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Benefits of Xylitol Chewing Gum

Filed Under: Diet & Weight Loss,Health Concerns & Ailments,Health Foods at 8:00 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

 

The American population, myself included, has definitely developed a bit of a sweet tooth. But what if there was a sugar that could have some health benefits, while also sweetening your foods? Xylitol, or birch sugar, is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol. Most of the xylitol used these days comes from birch wood or corncobs. Xylitol from corn should be avoided as it may be from a GMO source. Xylitol is available in many forms: as a chewing gum, syrup, or lozenges. Scientists believe that this sugar alcohol may actually contain many health benefits.

One major benefit of using xylitol is that it does not spike blood sugar as much as other sweeteners do. Xylitol has a glycemic index of 7, which when compared to table sugar, sucrose (a glycemic index of 58), it is extremely lower.

Xylitol has antibacterial and antiviral properties that helps protect against and fight infections. Research done in 2011 showed that Xylitol was useful in preventing recurrent otitis media in children. More specifically, there was a 25% reduction in the risk of occurrence in children that were given Xylitol versus the control group. Chewing gum and lozenges containing xylitol were found more effective than the syrup. Scientists also discovered that xylitol must be given 3 to 5 times per day for it to be effective. It is important to note that the American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend chewing gums, mints, or hard candy in children less than four years of age due to risk of choking.

Research has also shown that xylitol can help to prevent against tooth decay. Over 25 years of clinical testing confirms that xylitol is the best sweetener for teeth. This is because xylitol inhibits the growth of bacteria that cause cavities. Bacteria can’t utilize the xylitol and over time it changes the bacteria of the mouth.  It also prevents bacteria from sticking to teeth. A study on xylitol containing gum versus gum sweetened with sucrose versus a control group showed that gum containing 100% xylitol was able to reduce the incidences of cavities compared to the control group. Talk with your dentist to find out if xylitol is safe and beneficial for you.

These are just some of the common benefits of xylitol. Research and other studies are starting to look at xylitol for its benefits in weight loss as it helps appetite and sugar cravings, as well as respiratory/sinus health, bone health, anti-candida properties and much more. Make sure to shop Luckyvitamin.com for all your xylitol needs.

The Power of BCAA

Filed Under: Exercise and Fitness,Sports Nutrition at 1:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Known as the building blocks of muscle mass, Branched-Chain Amino Acids have been helping people for years. Popular known as BCAA, this top-selling sports nutrition product is commonly used to build muscle, burn fat, and enhance athletic performance.

If you are not familiar with BCAA, these supplements can improve endurance and strength training results and it has the ability to prevent muscle loss at high altitudes and prolong endurance performance in the heat, a perfect product for marathon or triathlon runners. Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine are three essential amino acids which play an important role in protein synthesis. These three amino acids are considered essential because the human body does not produce any of them and human beings cannot survive unless these amino acids are present in the diet.

Recent studies have shown that dieting groups supplementing with BCAAs, such as leucine, can increase muscle retention and maximize fat loss much more effectively than non-supplemented groups. Very popular in the bodybuilding and fitness community, BCAA supplementation may be useful for gaining mass and maintaining muscle mass even while on a calorie-deficit diet. BCAAs not only increase the rate of protein synthesis, but they also increase the cell’s capacity for protein synthesis.

Additionally, BCAAs might also help improve workout intensity as it competes with the amino acid tryptophan for entry into the brain, where Tryptophan can be converted to the neurotransmitter serotonin. During exercise, serotonin levels rise and can increase fatigue. BCAA supplementation reduces the amount of tryptophan that enters the brain, and therefore reduces the amount of serotonin produced.

Lucky Vitamin is now offering a special sale on BCAA supplements for a limited time. Click here to check out our BCAA sale page.

Vitamin E May Offer Benefits for Alzheimer’s

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Vitamins and Minerals at 12:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Vitamin E supplements are already known for offering multiple health benefits but a recent study may add another one to the list. The results of a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) shows that supplementation of vitamin E slows decline in patients with mild Alzheimer’s.

The study was a large, rigorous, multicenter randomized placebo-controlled trial with 33 authors, carried out at 14 Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers. It enrolled 613 patients age 53 to 96 with a diagnosis of possible or probable AD of mild to moderate severity who were already taking an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEI). 65% were on Donepezil, 32% on Galantamine, and 3% on Rivastigmine.

The results showed that participants got worse over the period of the study. However, individuals in the vitamin E group had a significantly slower decline than those in the placebo group (3.15 units less on the ADCS-ADL Inventory, annual rate of decline 19% less, and delay in progression of 6.2 months). The group taking both vitamin E and memantine did significantly worse than the group taking vitamin E alone. Adherence was estimated at 65-68%, which isn’t all that bad considering the age of patients and the effects of Alzheimer’s. They concluded that 2,000 IU of vitamin E significantly delayed clinical progression in activities of daily living in patients with mild to moderate AD who were also taking AChEI.

The results of this study bring some hope for Alzheimer’s patients but no one should start taking Vitamin E without the supervision of a physician. The Alzheimer’s Association’s call for caution as the high doses used in the ADCS study can negatively interact with other medications, including those prescribed to keep blood from clotting or to lower cholesterol.

LuckyVitamin Gives Back

Filed Under: Announcements & News at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last Thursday, LuckyVitamin.com gave back to the local community by spending the morning at Cradle to Crayons Giving Factory warehouse. We worked together for a common cause – providing everyday essentials for children in need.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Philadelphia has the highest poverty rate among the nation’s 10 largest cities. Nearly one in four Philadelphians, including 130,000 children, live in poverty.

Cradle to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12 who are presently living in homeless or low-income situations, with items they need to thrive at home, school and play. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.

Throughout the day we worked together to sort and process children’s items. Volunteer’s tasks included sorting and processing donated children’s items, testing and cleaning toys, inspecting clothing for rips and stains, sorting books by age and categories, and matching outfits for clothing packs.

These kinds of experiences tend to make you take inventory of your own life and circumstances. Your own problems don’t seem quite so dramatic once you realize that there are children who don’t own a single pair of proper-fitting shoes or a backpack to carry their schoolbooks. It was a meaningful day for all involved; to be able to work that directly benefits vulnerable children in the region.

All of us at LuckyVitamin were grateful for the opportunity to make even a small difference in a child’s life, and were happy to assist such a great organization. Thanks Cradle to Crayons!

Celebrate Hemp History Week…It’s time to grow

Filed Under: Announcements & News,Environment,Health Foods,Personal Care at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

This week marks the fifth annual Hemp History Week. More than ever, people are learning the benefits of this amazing plant. It’s been seen in health foods, skincare products, textiles and even building materials! Despite’s ever growing popularity, it’s misguided and outdated policy prevents U.S. farmers from growing this versatile, nutritious, eco-friendly crop.

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant. It is not the same as marijuana, as it does not contain the high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the active ingredient that produces a high. Hemp, or industrial hemp, is a cultivated, low-THC variety of Cannabis. It is grown for its seeds, oil and fiber.

Hemp is full of nutritional benefits. It’s a great source of complete protein with ten amino acids, omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids, Vitamin E, and iron. Vegan and gluten-free, hemp is an ideal, non-dairy alternative for vegetarian, vegan and raw diets or anyone with soy or dairy allergies.

Hemp Oil is becoming the new olive oil. A recent study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry detailed the numerous compounds in hempseed oil, which contains aliphatic alcohols, sterols and linolenic acids, which have all been associated with promoting good health.

You can you hemp seed in a variety of ways – added in smoothies, sprinkled in salads, cereals and dips or you can even substitute them for nuts in baked goods. You can even try making your own hemp milk or ground them into a meal.

We need work together to help farmers and support hemp farming in the U.S. Let’s educate our elected officials about the economic benefits of growing non-drug, industrial hemp on American soil.

Early Meal Times Can Help Weight Loss

Filed Under: Diet & Weight Loss,Health Concerns & Ailments at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Eating at proper times may affect weight loss success. Nothing new here, most people know that eating in the early hours is the best strategy for those trying to lose weight. A new study confirms that people who eat larger meals later in the day are likely to lose less weight than those who eat in the early hours of the day.

Study authors Marta Garaulet and Dr. Frank Scheer, director of the medical chronobiology program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, followed 420 people in Spain during a 20-week weight loss program. The participants were split into two groups: early eaters who ate lunch before 3 p.m. and late eaters who ate lunch after 3 p.m. In Spain, lunch is the biggest meal of the day, comprising about 40% of a person’s daily calories.

Published in the International Journal of Obesity, the study concluded that the early eaters, on average, lost 25% more weight than the late eaters over the course of the study, according to Scheer. Researchers looked at energy expenditure, dietary composition, appetite hormones and sleep duration. These factors were similar in both groups, leading the authors to conclude that the timing of the large meal was the source of the sluggish weight loss.

Researchers believe that the results are due to the body’s ability to handle glucose, the type of sugar that usually comes from carbohydrates. Late eaters in the study showed significantly higher HOMA levels, an index of insulin resistance that’s used to identify diabetes. Your system is better able to cope with higher glucose levels in the morning, extracting sugar from the blood to use as energy.

Reducing Stress with Holy Basil

Filed Under: Health Concerns & Ailments,Herbs at 12:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

If you are trying to reduce stress levels but can’t seem to find a good helper, Holy Basil supplements may be a great product for you. Holy Basil has been called the “Queen of Herbs” for a good reason as this ancient herb offers multiple medicinal benefits. Holy Basil supplements have been shown to reduce stress levels, minimizing the negative effects of stress on the body and, consequently, promoting body relaxation.

Available in tablets as well as teas, Holy Basil can provide benefits in other areas. For example, some people have been able to sleep longer and better when taking the herb on a regular basis. Other people have reported that drinking Holy Basil teas can be an excellent choice for elevating spirits. Additionally, studies have concluded that regular supplementation may support carbohydrate metabolism, resulting in healthy blood glucose levels.

Also known as Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum), Holy Basil is a member of the mint family and similar to regular basil you add to Italian dishes and pesto. This herb cab be easily grown in your home or on your balcony, patio. In Ayurvedic medicine, Holy Basil has been used as an adaptogen for thousands of years. Adaptogens essentially adapt to serve the body where it needs them most. Typically, adaptogens are characterized as stress-busters and most of the research on Holy Basil focus on this health benefit. However, Holy Basil contains additional beneficial properties including antibacterial, anti-fungal, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Holy Basil supplements can be used as a memory booster, for fever reduction, cough soothing, sore throat relief, clearing acne, as well as improve kidney function.
