Study Shows Red Wine and Chocolate Consumption Linked To Anti-Aging

The journal BMC Cell Biology published research linking the consumption of a compound similar to resveratrol to help with aging. Reservatrol is found in red wine and dark chocolate. This substance which is similar to resveratrol was found to help rejuvenate old human cells. This may slow down the aging process.

Researchers in the United Kingdom at the University of Exeter performed the study.

Splicing factors are often inactive as people age. But when resveralogues were added to aging human cells in the study, the splicing factors were reactivated. As a result, old cells appreared younger and they also started to divide again.

“When I saw some of the cells in the culture dish rejuvenating I couldn’t believe it,” says Dr. Latorre. “These old cells were looking like young cells. It was like magic,” she says.

“I repeated the experiments several times and in each case, the cells rejuvenated. I am very excited by the implications and potential for this research,” Dr. Latorre adds.

Natural Antibiotics For Bacteria In The Body

The many advancements and benefits of modern medicine increase every day. Overall it’s hard to say how many years it may have added to many people’s lives.

As with most things in life though, it is important to weigh the pros and cons to important decisions.

One possible concern with regular antibiotics is that they may harm the good bacteria in the gut. A reduction in good gut bacteria is not to be desired.

Before modern medicine, finding natural ways to help the body heal was relied on. Some of these may work very well. Others are not as effective. But many natural approaches are often quite safe.

Here are some natural options to deal with bacteria in the body:

“1. Garlic and Onion

Both garlic and onion contain anti-cancer, antifungal, and antibacterial properties.  According to the journal publication Pharmacognosy Reviews, “At the time when antibiotics and other pharmacy products did not exist, a bulb of garlic itself represented a whole pharmacy industry due to the broad spectrum of effects.”

2. Ginger Root

Ginger can be eaten fresh, dried, or powdered.  You can also take it as an extract, tincture, oil, lozenge, or capsule.   It is a potent antibiotic, pain-reliever, and anti-inflammatory agent, capable of relieving motion sickness and nausea, among other things.

3. Coconut Oil

As a natural antibiotic, coconut oil helps cure candida, warts, inflammation, and coughs.    It is also a potent antifungal, antiviral, and antimicrobial agent which prevents dangerous pathogens from entering the digestive system.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid, a potent anti-inflammatory. It helps reduce the symptoms of various conditions, including gout, arthritis, and acne.

5. Honey

Honey contains hydrogen peroxide, which is often used to treat cuts and minor injuries.  Amazingly, studies show that honey kills more than sixty different types of bacteria!”

It is important to be aware of some of the signs of having low magnesium. Some of these include headaches, low energy and loss of appetite.

“Dr. Dean has studied and written about magnesium for more than 15 years. The latest addition of her book, The Magnesium Miracle, came out in 2014 and in it you can learn about 22 medical areas that magnesium deficiency triggers or causes, all of which have all been scientifically proven.
