A recent study, led by scientists from the University of Colorado Boulder (UCB), suggests an aging gut microbiome may be responsible for the degradation in cardiovascular heath as we grow older. The study is another addition to the growing body of evidenceaffirming the role gut bacteria plays in age-related disease.

Age-related cardiovascular disease is primarily driven by stress-mediated arterial dysfunction. We know that as a human body grows older the risk of cardiovascular disease increases. A striking 70 percent of all people in the United States between the ages of 60 and 79 suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease.

Inspired by the accumulating research pointing to the gut microbiome as a primary modulator of oxidative stress and inflammation, the UCB study looked at whether there was a direct connection between gut bacteria alterations and arterial dysfunction. To examine this, scientists used antibiotics to eliminate the microbiome of both old and young mice. After a few weeks of broad-spectrum antibiotic treatment, the young mice displayed no changes to their arterial health, however, the older mice showed major improvements across several vascular health measures. This suggests that the microorganisms in the aging mice may be responsible for vascular dysfunction.

As we age, the variety of bacteria in our microbiome diminishes. This lack of microbial diversity can result in an imbalance, called dysbiosis, which some hypothesize as the cause of many age-related diseases.  To try to home in on how certain bacteria could be driving cardiovascular disease, the researchers analyzed the differences between the old and young animals’ microbiome.  In the old mice, the researchers saw an increased prevalence of microbes that are pro-inflammatory and have been previously associated with diseases.

Significantly, one particular metabolite appeared in much higher levels in the old mice compared to the younger mice. Trimethylamine N-oxide, or TMAO, is a metabolite that has been strongly linked to atherosclerosis and stroke, and high levels of TMAO can appear in a person’s blood when large volumes of certain bacteria are present in the gut.

Scientists have long known that oxidative stress and inflammation are involved in making arteries unhealthy over time.  It is hypothesized that, with age, the gut microbiota begins producing toxic molecules, including TMAO, which get into the blood stream, cause inflammation and oxidative stress and damage tissue.

It’s too early to jump to any conclusions as to what all this research ultimately means. The researchers suggest that maintaining a diverse microbiome in older age may be a beneficial way to reduce cardiovascular disease risk.  This, of course, is not as simple as eating a particular probiotic, but the researchers are currently investigating the impact of different diets on gut health and cardiovascular disease in human subjects.

Recent aging studies have shown that caloric restriction and fasting have a prolonging effect on lifespan.  A compelling new study by a team of Japanese researchers has offered an incredibly thorough examination into the metabolic alterations that occur in human blood during fasting, revealing a fascinating array of changes that could point to a variety of health benefits.

The research set out to exhaustively analyze the metabolic profile of blood samples as subjects underwent an extensive stretch of fasting. Four healthy participants were recruited and subjected to a long fast, with blood samples taken at three points in the process: 10, 34 and 58 hours after commencing fasting. 

The researchers identified 44 different blood-based metabolites significantly increasing in abundance after 58 hours of fasting.  Alongside known markers signaling the body is moving to utilizing alternative energy stores, such as butyrates and branched-chain amino acids, an interesting increase in anti-oxidant metabolites was found suggesting that the response could be an evolutionary defense against the oxidative stress put on the body during fasting. 

Other previously unidentified metabolites revealed in the study signaled enhanced mitochondrial activity. This discovery adds weight to a compelling Harvard study from last year that suggested that fasting could increase longevity and promote healthy aging by kickstarting youthful plasticity in mitochondrial networks.

Interestingly, three specific metabolites known to be associated with aging and longevity – leucine, isoleucine, and ophthalmic acid – all increased in levels after fasting.  Prior study has revealed these specific metabolites essential for maintenance of muscle and antioxidant activity decrease with age and are found in notably low levels in the elderly. This result suggests the possibility of a rejuvenating effect by fasting.

One of the biggest limitations in this particular study was the small sample size. Although the ultimate increases in metabolites were consistent across all four subjects, how quickly those metabolites peaked did vary from person to person. The researchers note that further work in more subjects will hopefully resolve any questions over individual metabolic respond patterns.

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.

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).

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.

Stems cells are literally those “fountain of youth” cells that are vital in keeping us healthy and alive.  In brain, we have neural stems cells proliferating in two main regions of the brain: the subventricular zone and hippocampal dentate gyrus.  Unfortunately, as we age, the numbers of these neural stems cells decline and become insufficient to protect us against age-related injuries such as cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injuries and vascular dementia.  The theory goes that if we can figure out a way of stimulating endogenous neural stem cell proliferation and differentiation in our brain, then we will be able to delay brain aging and maybe even avoid senile dementia.

Ginkgo biloba extract seems to be a solution.  A research published in the Neural Regeneration Research (Vol. 8, No. 18, 2013) hasfound that Ginko biloba effectively and safely treats memory loss and cognitive impairments in patients with senile dementia.

In the study, Gingko biloba extract seems to promote neural stem cells proliferation in the subventricular zone and dentate gyrus of animal models with vascular dementia. The end result is that Ginkgo biloba significantly improved learning and memory in the tested animal models with vascular dementia.

Gingko biloba has been extensively used in herbal medicine for treating brain diseases such as senile dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.  These findings provide further evidence on how the herb works to protect brain from aging related diseases.   For an easy and delicious way of taking Ginkgo biloba, check out Mocca Shots dark chocolate gummies here https://seattlegummy.com/product/moccashots/.
