A study published on the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC) found that high concentrations of cocoa flavanols decrease blood pressure, improve the health of blood vessels and increase the number of circulating blood-vessel-forming cells in patients with heart disease. The findings indicate that foods rich in flavanols — such as cocoa products, blueberry, and Ginkgo — have a cardio-protective benefit.

Flavanols are phytonutrient compounds that are found naturally in fruits such as apples, grapes, blueberries, tea, and cherries and herbs such as cocoa nuts and gingko.  The study found a protective effect from a cocoa drink with 375 mg of flavanols, but according to researchers, a standard or recommended dosage has not yet been defined to achieve optimal health benefit.

The UCSF team has shown for the first time that one of the possible mechanisms of flavanol’s benefit is an increase in the circulation of so-called angiogenic cells in the blood. These cells, also known as early endothelial progenitor cells, are critical for the repair process after vascular injury, and perform function and maintenance roles in the endothelium. Endothelium is the thin layer of cells that line the interior wall of blood vessels.

“Reduced blood vessel function is a hallmark of early development of coronary artery disease,” said cardiologist Yerem Yeghiazarians, MD, senior author, associate professor of medicine, and researcher in the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCSF. “If we can improve the health and function of damaged blood vessels, heart disease patients will have a better chance of survival.”

In 2005, researchers reported that an increased level of circulating angiogenic cells is associated with a decreased risk of death from cardiovascular causes (New England Journal of Medicine by Werner, N., et al.)

In the current study, the benefit seen from the two-fold increase in circulating angiogenic cells was similar to that achieved by therapy with statins and with lifestyle changes such as exercise and smoking cessation. The benefit demonstrated with cocoa flavanol therapy occurred in addition to the medical regimen already being taken by study participants.

“Our data support the concept that dietary flavanols at the levels provided — in tandem with current medical therapy — are safe, improve cardiovascular function, and increase circulating angiogenic cells, which have previously been shown to correlate positively with long-term cardiovascular outcomes” said Yeghiazarians. “Long-term trials examining the effects of high-flavanol diets on cardiovascular health and function are warranted, but these early findings help us understand how these compounds impact the function of damaged blood vessels.

The study included 16 coronary artery disease patients aged 64 years (±three years) who received a high-flavanol cocoa drink (containing 375 mg of flavanols) twice a day over 30 days and then a nutrient-matched low-flavanol cocoa drink (containing 9mg flavanols) twice a day over 30 days.

The study was randomized, controlled and “masked,” meaning both the doctors and patients were prevented from knowing which variation of the cocoa drink a patient was drinking at a given time until after the study was completed. The patients continued taking all regular medications for their underlying heart disease during the study period, including statin medications for lowering the cholesterol levels to recommended goals.

Researchers calculated the outcome of the cocoa intervention using blood pressure readings, ultrasound to measure dilation of the brachial artery, and cell assays to calculate the number and behavior of circulating angiogenic cells. The tests showed a 47 percent improvement in vasodilation, or widening rather than constriction, of the brachial artery in the high-flavanol time period compared to the low-flavanol period. In addition, circulating angiogenic cells increased 2.2-fold and systolic blood pressure decreased among the high-flavanol versus low-flavanol periods.

“This is exciting data,” Yeghiazarians added. “Our findings demonstrate that a further increase in endothelial function and improvement in blood pressure can be achieved by complementing standard treatment with a flavanol-rich diet. The 80 million Americans impacted by heart disease may be glad to hear this.” Notably, the therapy did not influence fasting glucose levels of study participants. (Fasting glucose is the standard for measuring an individual’s blood sugar level to diagnose conditions such as diabetes and heart disease).

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.

Thanks for reading.

We all know the signs of aging – starting with a few wrinkles showing up at the corner of the eyes and a few grays hairs popping up here and there, followed by back ache and knee pain. Pretty soon, you find yourself searching for names when staring at a familiar face. Have you ever wondered how scientists measure aging?

One of the biological markers for aging is the telomere, a short sequence of DNA capping the end of our DNA strands. Like the plastic tips of shoelaces, telomeres protect chromosomes from deterioration. As a cell ages, its telomeres naturally shorten and fray. Shortened telomeres are associated with cardiovascular disease, diabetes and major cancers. Scientists now know that telomeres shorten naturally after each cell replication cycle. However, various research suggests that health and lifestyle factors, such as obesity and smoking, may accelerate that process.

In a study, published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, scientists from the University of California San Diego School of Medicine reported that elderly women with low physical activity and sedentary lifestyle have cells that are biologically older by eight years compared to women who are less sedentary. 1,500 women, ages 64 to 90, participated in the study. The women were part of the larger Women’s Health Initiative (WHI), a national, longitudinal study investigating the determinants of chronic diseases in postmenopausal women. The participants completed questionnaires and wore an accelerometer on their right hip for seven consecutive days during waking and sleeping hours to track their movements.

The researchers found that elderly women with less than 40 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity per day and who remain sedentary for more than 10 hours per day have shorter telomeres. The researchers further found that women who sat longer did not have shorter telomere length if they exercised for at least 30 minutes a day, the national recommended guideline. The study concluded that cells age faster with a sedentary lifestyle and that chronological age doesn’t always match biological age.

So, what’s the take home message? Next time when someone comments –“wow, you look younger than your age,” tell them “I worked for it!”

Thanks for reading!

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.”

For those of you who exercise regularly, you will know that exercise does great things to your mind and body. For me personally, I have to admit that I am going for the runner’s high. The collateral benefits are extra bonus, of course. A study published in the Cell Press journal Current Biology just gave us one more reason to hit the gym.

The researchers from the Donders Institute at the Radboud University Medical Center in the Netherlands reported that physical exercise after learning improves memory and memory traces. However, the caveat is that the memory boosting effect only presents when the exercise is done in a specific time window, i.e., four hours after the learning, but not immediately after learning.

In the study, the researchers tested the effects of a single session of physical exercise after learning on memory consolidation and long-term memory. Seventy-two study participants learned 90 picture-location associations over a period of approximately 40 minutes before being randomly assigned to one of three groups: one group performed exercise immediately, the second performed exercise four hours later, and the third did not perform any exercise. The exercise consisted of 35 minutes of interval training on an exercise bike at an intensity of up to 80 percent of participants’ maximum heart rates. Forty-eight hours later, participants returned for a test to show how much they remembered while their brains were imaged via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

The researchers found that those who exercised four hours after their learning session retained the information better two days later than those who exercised either immediately or not at all. The brain images also showed that exercise after a time delay was associated with more precise representations in the hippocampus, an area important to learning and memory, when an individual answered a question correctly.

The results of the study suggest that appropriately timed physical exercise can improve long-term memory and highlight the potential of exercise as an intervention in educational and clinical settings.   However, it is not yet clear exactly how or why delayed exercise has this effect on memory. Some earlier studies of laboratory animals suggest that naturally occurring chemical compounds in the body known as catecholamines, including dopamine and norepinephrine, can improve memory consolidation. One way to boost catecholamines is through physical exercise, which could be accounted for the observed memory boosting effects in this study.

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.

Strong muscles are important for the health of not only one’s body and minds but also the quality of life.  One way to keep muscles in shape is with strength training. When performing muscle-strengthening exercises, it is very important for have the right postures because wrong form can do more harm than good.  Below are some guidelines to help you to avoid injury and keep your program on track.

  • Always warm up and cool down properly.
  • Use proper form to avoid injuries and maximize gains.
  • Breathe out when you are lifting or pushing; breathe in as you slowly release the load or weight. Never hold your breath while straining.
  • Don’t lock your joints; always leave a slight bend in your knees and elbows when straightening out your legs and arms.
  • Don’t be so eager to see results that you risk hurting yourself by exercising too long or choosing too much weight. Remember to rest muscles for at least 48 hours between strength training sessions.
  • If you’ve been sick, give yourself one or two days off after recovering. If you were ill for a while and try to get back to your routine, start with lighter weights or less resistance when you first resume exercising.
  • Strength training exercises should not cause pain while you are doing them. If an exercise or movement causes significant pain, stop doing it! When performing an exercise, stick with a range of motion that feels comfortable. Over time, try to gradually extend that range.
  • Listen to your body and cut back if you aren’t able to finish a series of exercises or an exercise session, can’t talk while exercising, feel faint after a session, feel tired during the day, or suffer joint aches and pains after a session.

Happy exercising.

Push-ups and sit ups could add years to your life according to a study of over a large population led by the University of Sydney.  The research, published in the American Journal of Epidemiologytoday, is based on a pooled population sample of over 80,306 adults with data drawn from the Health Survey for England and Scottish Health Survey, linked with the NHS Central Mortality Register.

This largest study to compare the mortality outcomes of different types of exercise found that exercise promoting muscular strength may be just as important for health as aerobic activities like jogging or cycling.  The data shows that people who did strength-based exercise had a 23 percent reduction in risk of premature death by any means, and a 31 percent reduction in cancer-related death.

The World Health Organization’s Physical Activity Guidelines for adults recommend 150 minutes of aerobic activity, plus two days of muscle strengthening activities each week.  However, the popular message on exercise has been focusing on “get moving.”  This study prompts expanding the kinds of exercise to beyond traditional aerobic activities for long-term health and wellbeing.

The analysis also showed that exercises performed using one’s own body weight — such as triceps dips, sit-ups, push-ups or lunges — without specific equipment were just as effective as gym-based training.   The take home message is that everyone can do classic exercises in their own home or local park and potentially reap the same health benefits as working out in a gym.

The key findings from the study are:

  • participation in any strength-promoting exercise was associated with a 23 percent reduction in all-cause mortality and a 31 percent reduction in cancer mortality.
  • own bodyweight exercises that can be performed in any setting without equipment yielded comparable results to gym-based activities.
  • adherence to WHO’s strength-promoting exercise guideline alone was associated with reduced risk of cancer-related death, but adherence to the WHO’s aerobic physical activity guideline alone was not.
  • adherence to WHO’s strength-promoting exercise and aerobic guidelines combined was associated with a greater risk reduction in mortality than aerobic physical activity alone.

Happy exercising.
