The benefit of exercising on cardiovascular and brain health are well known and well researched.  How about aging, you may wonder, would exercise slow down the aging process?  The answer is yes according to a recent study by researchers at the University of Birmingham and King’s College London, which has found that staying active keeps the body young and healthy.

The researchers set out to assess the health of older adults who had exercised most of their adult lives to see if this could slow down ageing. The study recruited 125 amateur cyclists aged 55 to 79, 84 of which were male and 41 were female. The men had to be able to cycle 100 km in under 6.5 hours, while the women had to be able to cycle 60 km in 5.5 hours. Smokers, heavy drinkers and those with high blood pressure or other health conditions were excluded from the study.

The participants underwent a series of tests in the laboratory and were compared to a group of adults who do not partake in regular physical activity. This group consisted of 75 healthy people aged 57 to 80 and 55 healthy young adults aged 20 to 36.

The study showed that loss of muscle mass and strength did not occur in those who exercise regularly. Furthermore, the cyclists did not increase their body fat or cholesterol levels with age and the men’s testosterone levels remained high, suggesting that they may have avoided most of the male menopause.

More surprisingly, the study revealed that the benefits of exercise extend beyond muscle.  Specifically, researchers have found that the cyclists had an immune system that did not seem to have aged.  An organ called the thymus, which makes immune cells called T cells, starts to shrink from the age of 20 and makes less T cells.  T cells are our body’s natural defense against infections.  Reduced T cells population in old age is one of the reasons for the increased tendency to become ill as we age.  In this study, however, the cyclists’ thymuses were making as many T cells as those of a young person.

The research means that committing to regular exercise throughout a lifetime is a viable solution to the problem that we are living longer but not healthier. Through regular exercise, our bodies could age optimally, free from the problems usually caused by inactivity.

The take home lesson is that finding an exercise that you enjoy in whatever environment that suits you and make a habit of physical activity. You will reap the rewards of being vibrant, productive, independent, and looking fabulous throughout your life.

Large volume of recent researches has shown that low-grade systemic inflammation leads to metabolic diseases ranging from cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, obesity, dementia, chronicle pain, and aging.  Other than medications, stopping inflammation should start with an everyday anti-inflammatory (AI) diet.  Benefits of a healthy AI diet include the reduced risks of heart diseases and cancers, reduced incidences of autoimmune diseases, weight loss, improved insulin sensitivity, and slowed aging process in general.

A healthy AI diet should include a balance of nutrient-dense foods such as protein, carbohydrates and fat with lots of vegetables and limited amount of fruits.  Stick with a few basics when creating on your own AI diet:

  • Eat low-fat protein such as lean meat and beans;
  • Eat whole grains and avoid refined carbohydrates;
  • Eat omega-3 rich food such as nuts, flaxseed and fish;
  • Eat antioxidant rich food such as cruciferous vegetables, tomatoes, artichokes, leafy greens, peppers, deep-colored fruits, sweet potato, dark chocolate, coffee, and tea;
  • Incorporate anti-inflammatory herb into your diet such as ginger (which you could find in SGC’s Energon Qube Recover product), turmeric (which you could find in SGC’s Golden Glow product) and garlic;
  • Reduce omega-6 fatty acids intake such as margarine and vegetable oils such as corn, soybean, and canola; and
  • Avoid trans mono-saturated fatty acid (meaning processed food).

The AI diet is neither a magic panacea nor a quick-fix treatment.  However, long-term consumption of an AI diet offers steady health improvement. With so many AI food options that are available, following an AI diet is not difficult.  Stick to it, you will see the improvement on your general well being.

The use of herbs in North America has increased dramatically over the last decade and ginseng is one of the most widely-used ones. The name “ginseng” refers to American (Panax quinquefolius) as well as Asian or Korean ginseng (Panax ginseng) — both belong to the genus Panax and have a similar chemical makeup. Both Asian and American ginsengs contain ginsenosides, which are the substances thought to give ginseng its medicinal properties.

Ginseng is considered an “adaptogen” in herbal medicine, meaning it is an herb that helps the body to deal with various kinds of stress. Most ginseng studies have used Panax ginseng (Asian ginseng). There are some evidences suggesting that Panax ginseng may:

  • help boost the immune system
  • reduce the risk of cancer
  • improve mental performance and well being

Laboratory studies in animals have found that American ginseng is effective in boosting the immune system, and as an antioxidant. Other studies show that American ginseng might have therapeutic potential for inflammatory diseases.  A recent study from the University of Toronto just added one more disease that Ginseng may fight against, diabetes.

The researchers from the University of Toronto have found that taking American ginseng before a meal reduces blood sugar in people both with and without diabetes. The study appears in the April 9 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine, a publication of the Journal of the American Medical Association(JAMA).

In the clinical study conducted by the UT researchers, the participants, both diabetic (Type 2) and non-diabetic, consumed capsules containing three grams of ground American ginseng either 40 minutes before or during a glucose test meal.  Among participants with Type 2 diabetes, those who took the ginseng capsules experienced a 20% reduction in blood sugar levels compared to when they took placebo capsules. Among non-diabetic participants, similar reductions were only seen when the ginseng capsules were taken before, not together, with the test meal, suggesting that the timing of administration may be important.

Ginseng is a common herb as well as a food item in Asia.  My favorite dish when visiting Seoul is Ginseng Chicken soup.  With all these wonderful properties that the herb possesses, you might want to add this herb into your dietary regime too.

Coffee is the world’s most popular beverages.   A large population study drawing on data from over half a million Europeans suggests that coffee could have a range of health benefits, by revealing an association between higher coffee consumption and a reduced risk of death from all causes.

The research was carried out by scientists from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and Imperial College London, who analyzed cancer and nutrition data from more than 500,000 Europeans over the age of 35. These subjects hailed from 10 different European countries, each with their distinctive styles of coffee consumption, such as the espresso sippers of Italy and the cappuccino-lovers of the UK.

This in itself revealed a few interesting insights. The people of Denmark, it was found, boast the highest level of coffee consumption by volume, at 900 mL (30 oz) per person per day, while the Italians consumed the least at around 92 mL (3.04 oz). The more coffee people drank, the more likely they were to be smokers, drinkers, meat-eaters, younger and not huge fans of fruit and vegetables.

Following up with the same participants 16 years later, the study found that 42,000 deaths had occurred from causes including cancer, circulatory diseases, heart failure and stroke. Adjusting for factors such as diet and smoking, the data shows that subjects in the highest quartile of coffee consumption had significantly lower mortality rates than those consumed the lowest amount.

In addition, the study found that higher coffee consumption was associated with a lower risk of death from any cause, and specifically for circulatory diseases, and digestive diseases.   These results were similar across all of the 10 European countries, with variable coffee drinking habits and customs.   Further mechanistic analysis revealed that coffee drinkers may have healthier livers and better glucose control, something the researchers uncovered by analyzing metabolic biomarkers in a subset of 14,000 people.  In general the study suggested that moderate coffee drinking – up to around three cups per day – may be good to your health, and that incorporating coffee into your diet could have health benefits.

One hallmark of modern technology is the creation of sedentary lifestyle. Many of us sit in front of the computer all day working and typing away.  Coincidentally, occurrence of metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases has skyrocketed.  Of course, modern sedentary lifestyle is the first to get blamed. However, I have always wondered that sedentary lifestyle is not in conflict of physical activity.  We can work on the desk eight or ten hours a day and hit the gym regularly.  We don’t have to scavenge for food in the forest in order to get the physical exercise, right?

It seems that scientific researchers agree.  A study published in in PLOS ONEreported that it is not the amount of time spent sitting still that matters; rather it is the daily amount of physical activity that is crucial to a person’s health.

Researchers from the Örebro University, Sweden, studied women over 65 as they are among the least active groups of the population, at the same time as they run a high risk of developing cardiovascular disease.  120 women took part in the Örebro study. They had a medical examination and over the course of one week, their physical activity was measured using an accelerometer.  The results showed that replacing sedentary activities with a 10-min time block of medium physical activities such as a brisk walk was associated with a decrease in waist circumference and decrease in metabolic risk score indicative of cardiovascular health.

The researchers concluded that lack of physical activities rather than sedentary time per se increases the risk of developing metabolic diseases. Based on the findings, the researchers recommended increasing amounts of physical activity in order to promote a favorable metabolic health profile in older women.

The results may well apply to other groups since they are in line with a meta-analysis of previous research based on a million adult men and women, which indicated that physical activity rather than sedentary behavior affects the risk of mortality.  This means that, if one person is jogging while another is only doing less strenuous activities, the first person runs a lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease than the second — regardless of the extent of their sedentary activities.

SEATTLE, Washington – As one of the biggest and oldest bicycle boutique stores in Seattle area, Gregg’s Cycle stores (https://www.greggscycles.com/) have become the most recent retail partner for Mocca Shots High Caffeine Gummies by Seattle Gummy Company (SGC).

Gregg’s Greenlake Cycle first opened its doors in 1932 under the direction of R.V. Gregg. Today Gregg’s Cycles remains under the ownership of Stan Gregg, the third generation of the Gregg family and a cycling athlete with 16 national and 10 world medals. In 1983, Gregg’s Bellevue Cycle opened to serve the growing number of cyclists in the suburbs of the Eastside. Gregg’s Bellevue Cycle is currently the largest bicycle shop on the Eastside. Early in 2007, the company further expanded into its Lynnwood location.

Acclaimed as an energy product with the highest caffeine concentration available on the market, each Mocca Shots dark chocolate gummy packs 100mg of caffeine, the equivalent of a regular cup of coffee.  SGC’s Mocca Shots are unique to the market, bringing consumers flavor, convenience, and performance in one powerful gummy. Benefits include:

  • Delicious taste:SGC’s patented technology masks bitterness while bringing out the delicious taste of dark chocolate.
  • Quick absorption, reduced jitters:The caffeine in Mocca Shots™ is absorbed faster than other products via mucosal absorption, and the combination of active ingredients improves focus and alertness while reducing the caffeine jitters.
  • Non-spill convenience:Mocca Shots™ come in a convenient resealable pouch with 2 gummies, so you can carry the equivalent of two cups of coffee in your pocket, and they don’t spill.

The caffeine in Mocca Shots™ works 5x faster because ingredients are absorbed through mouth mucosa, by-passing the normal digestive process.  “As a result,” says Dr. Connie Wan, CEO, “next to an IV, Mocca Shots are the fastest way to deliver caffeine directly into the blood stream.” SGC’s Functional Gummy® Delivery System is key to masking caffeine’s unpleasant taste and anxious side-effects while improving absorption and bioavailability. This allows you to feel the caffeine kick within minutes of taking the product.

Why Chocolate Gummies? Caffeine increases alertness, focus, cognition and attention but often with jittery side-effects. Research shows that caffeine and cocoa together do the same trick but with enhanced focus and reduced anxiety. The combination results in a clean and focused energy without the jittery feeling associated with other caffeinated products. “Feedback we get confirms the science behind Mocca Shots,” says Dr. Connie Wan. “Customers love the clean energy feeling and are amazed at how quickly and effectively Mocca Shots work when they are painfully fatigued or need to be productive.”

Yoga has been touted for many health benefits.   In addition to building a stronger body, yoga has been shown by research to help with, among others, migraines, osteoporosis, balance and mobility issues, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, fibromyalgia, and ADHD.  If you are suffering from back pain or arthritis pain, did you know that a growing body of research shows that yoga may provide relief?

Back pain relief

Back pain is one of the most common health problems in the United States. Four out of five Americans will suffer from it at some point. Yoga appears to help. A 2013 meta-analysis of 10 randomized controlled trials found “strong evidence for short-term effectiveness and moderate evidence for long-term effectiveness of yoga for chronic low-back pain.” In fact, since 2007, the American Society of Pain guidelines have urged physicians to consider recommending yoga to patients with long-term pain in the lower back.

In one study, published in the journal Spine, people with back pain who did two 90-minute sessions of yoga a week for 24 weeks experienced a 56% reduction in pain. They also had less disability and depression than people with back pain who received standard care, such as pain medication. In addition, the results suggested a trend toward the use of less pain medication in those who did yoga.

While it is tempting to stay in bed when your back hurts, doctors no longer recommend extended bed rest.  In general, the sooner you can get up and get moving, the faster you will recover. Yoga helps alleviate back pain by increasing flexibility and muscle strength. Relaxation, stress reduction, and better body awareness may also play a role.

Less arthritis pain

Exercise has been shown to help alleviate the pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis; however, these symptoms can make it difficult to be active in the first place. Yoga offers a gentle form of exercise that helps improve range of motion and strengthen the muscles around painful joints.

In a 2014 study of 36 women with knee osteoarthritis, those who did yoga experienced significant improvements in their symptoms compared with women who didn’t do yoga. The yoga group had a 60-minute class one day a week and then practiced at home on several other days, averaging 112 minutes of yoga a week on their own. After eight weeks, they reported a 38% reduction in pain and a 35% reduction in stiffness, while the no-yoga group reported worsening symptoms.

People with rheumatoid arthritis may also benefit from yoga practice. In a 2015 study, women with rheumatoid arthritis reported improvements in their physical health, walking ability, pain levels, energy, and mood, and had significantly fewer swollen and tender joints, after doing two hour-long yoga classes a week for eight weeks.

Evidence is building for the benefits of yoga practice.  Roll up your yoga mat and get to a yoga studio today.  It’s good for you.

Caffeine has well-known short-term stimulating effects on central nervous system, but the long-term impacts on cognition have been less clear. Scientists from Indiana University (IU) just gave those of us, who live on coffee and tea, another reason to enjoy that steaming cup of mocha. It turns out that caffeine not long gives you that extra boost in the morning but also protects you against dementia in old age.

A study by Indiana University researchers has identified caffeine, one of the 24 compounds with the potential to boost an enzyme in the brain shown to protect against dementia.1 The protective enzyme, called NMNAT2, plays two roles in the brain: a protective function to guard neurons from stress and a “chaperone function” to combat misfolded proteins, which accumulate in the brain as “plaques” due to aging. Misfolded proteins have been linked to neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases, as well as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease.

To identify substances with the potential to affect the production of the NMNAT2 enzyme in the brain, the researchers screened over 1,280 compounds, including existing drugs. A total of 24 compounds were identified as having potential to increase the production of NMNAT2 in the brain. One of the substances shown to increase production of the enzyme was caffeine, which also has been shown to improve memory function in animal model genetically modified to produce high levels of misfolded proteins. To confirm the effect of caffeine, IU researchers administered caffeine to mice modified to produce lower levels of NMNAT2. As a result, the mice began to produce the same levels of the enzyme as normal mice. This means that caffeine increased the production of the protective enzyme in the brain and therefore could potentially lead to the protection of the brain against the dementia.

This UI research supports earlier epidemiology studies showing the protective effect of caffeine in dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. For Example, the Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Aging and Dementia (CAIDE) study by Finland researchers in 2010 showed that coffee drinking of 3-5 cups per day at midlife was associated with a decreased risk of dementia/AD by about 65% at late-life.2 The Finland researchers hypothesized that the correlation may be mediated by caffeine and/or other mechanisms like antioxidant capacity and increased insulin sensitivity. The UI research seems to confirm that caffeine is a key factor for the brain protecting effect of the coffee.
