Researchers from Edith Cowan University (ECU) compared 44 people on the diet with 47 following a traditional Australian diet. […]

Broccoli Sprout Compound May Restore Brain Chemistry Imbalance Linked To Schizophrenia

A set of chemical imbalances in the brains of people with schizophrenia related to the chemical glutamate has been elucidated by Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers in recently published studies using animals and people. They have also dicovered how to regulate the levels using a compound derived from broccoli sprouts. The results advance the hope that […]

Inflammatory Bowel Disease Reduced By Metabolite From Pomegranates

A microbial metabolite, Urolithin A, derived from a compound found in berries and pomegranates, can reduce and protect against inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), scientists at the University of Louisville have shown. Millions of people worldwide suffer from IBD in the form of either ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, and few effective long-term treatments are available. […]

Age-related Brain Inflammation Reduced By Dietary Fiber

As mammals age, immune cells in the brain known as microglia become chronically inflamed. In this state, they produce chemicals known to impair cognitive and motor function. That’s one explanation for why memory fades and other brain functions decline during old age. According to a new study from the University of Illinois, there may be […]
