Personal experiences prove: Cellular nutrients effective in controlling cancer!

Is cancer an unavoidable disease, which inevitably occurs as people grow older? Clearly, the answer is “no”. It has been proven that micronutrients are able to naturally block the spreading of cancer cells. The ground-breaking book “Victory over Cancer” has documented the scientific basis towards the prevention and control of this widespread disease. Now there is proof in the form of numerous well-documented progress reports by cancer patients.

Staying healthy and in shape with green tea

Tea catechins promote fat burning

Green tea is regarded as being one of the most healthy foods. Its health-promoting properties can mostly be attributed to the catechins contained in green tea, including, above all, the plant extract epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) that is known for its highly anti-oxidative and cell-protecting effects. Due to this fact, green tea has probably become the most fashionable drink during the past decades. And, indeed, there is hardly any other food that has made the headlines as frequently as green tea. Previous studies have shown, for instance, that green tea polyphenols protect against cancer and atherosclerosis. However, there is also another factor that attracts considerable attention: Several scientific studies have documented the potential of green tea to reduce body weight. Considering that obesity is more than simply an aesthetic problem, and primarily a major health risk, these research efforts are both logical and necessary. Below, we take a closer look at this issue.

Omega-3 fatty acids for an optimal brain function

It is a well-known fact that the Japanese and other people living in East Asian countries are much healthier than most Central Europeans. This is mostly due to their high consumption of fish and other sea foods, which are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids. As is the case with vitamins and minerals, omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil are very important for the human body. An omega-3-rich diet can prevent many of the diseases that are common today. Omega-3 fatty acids have been most researched with regard to their beneficial properties on heart diseases. In addition, research into the positive effects of fish oil as an important 'brain food' has been particularly notable in the fields of attention deficit disorders, schizophrenia and dementia. Below, we will examine all of this in more detail.

Fight inflammatory diseases naturally with omega-3 fatty acids

Are you aware of why animals living in icy waters have body fat rich in omega-3 fatty acids? Or do you know why this fact is so vital to life in the Arctic Ocean? No, it has nothing to do with the fact that omega-3 fatty acids provide protection against the freezing cold for the body's internal organs. The real reason for this is the following: Due to their design and structure, omega-3 fatty acids stay fluid even at low temperatures. And because omega-3 fatty acids form an important element of cell membranes, these cells and cell membranes stay flexible even at very low temperatures.

A healthy heart with omega-3 fatty acids

Nowadays, omega-3 fatty acids are on everyone-s lips - and this is indicated in the very truest sense of the word: More and more studies are showing just how important omega-3 fatty acids are for health and, furthermore, the food industry has recently discovered these important substances, too. Almost everyone has encountered the term "omega-3" before, either on the packaging of margarine and fish fingers on supermarket shelves or as fish oil capsules found in health shops and chemists. Fish oil is particularly well-known as being beneficial in the prevention of heart disease. However, what exactly are omega-3 fatty acids and why should they be so vital for heart health? In this Health Letter, we are going to look at this in more detail.

Recent study proves: Quercetin increases bioavailability of green tea extract epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG)

Due to oxidation and a low absorption rate, the green tea extract epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a substance characterized by numerous beneficial effects on health, has only a limited bioavailability. A study by the Dr. Rath Institute of Cellular Research and the University of Nagpur, India, now shows that the absorption of EGCG and the plasma levels of EGCG are improved by adding the flavonoid quercetin to a nutrient mixture.

Vitamin E for protection against Alzheimer’s: Study confirms importance of all naturally available vitamin E forms

More than 700,000 people in the UK live with dementia, and each year about 160,000 new cases occur in England and Wales. Alzheimer’s disease is the most widespread form of dementia, a cerebral disorder which primarily affects older people. Dementia is characterised by the loss of mental performance, including an increasing disturbance of memory, and the development of personality disorders. There are numerous risk factors that can trigger this increasingly common illness. Apart from natural aging processes and genetic disposition, possible causes include metabolic disorders of the brain, cardiovascular diseases and hormonal disorders, as well as environmental factors, sensory overload and mental overload due to stress.

Omega-3 fatty acids – Health from the Sea

For years, omega-3 fatty acids have been an integral part of nutrition and health research. Numerous studies have proven their effectiveness in preventing and treating a variety of different diseases. These facts alone demonstrate the special importance of essential omega-3 fatty acids and allow one to place them on the same level as other essential micronutrients, suchas vitamins and minerals. The main source of omega-3 fatty acids is sea fish, which should therefore be a regular part of a conscious and healthy diet.

What is the swine-flu hysteria really about?

As regular as clockwork, the mass media warns mankind of the dangers of an impending pandemic. In 2003 we had SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), 3 years ago it was bird-flu, and now we have swine-flu hysteria.

Current studies criticise futile pharmaceutical medicines

Natural treatment of coronary heart disease is possible

Millions of people in the UK and throughout Europe suffer from heart failure. The signs are shortness of breath, oedema and fatigue. Often those affected suffer from cardiacarrhythmia which can lead to sudden death. It is alarming how the number of people suffering from cardiac insufficiency (heart failure) has increased during the past decades – despite the massive use of apparently highly effective pharmaceutical medicines. Current studies reveal the great risks and ineffectiveness of these conventional pharmaceutical medicines, but fail to mention that the advantages of fighting this common disease naturally have been known for some time!

Fear of scientific innovation

The agents of the Pharma cartel stir up anti-vitamin hysteria

It is always dangerous when science is manipulated in order to instigate fear amongst the public. A current example of this is the presentation of study data by the "Cochrane Collaboration" on the supposed risks of vitamins - no doubt, in this case to scare people away from taking nutrients that are essential for a healthy life, their safety and effectiveness have long since been convincingly demonstrated in numerous scientific studies.
