  • Diet Not Working? Brain Is To Blame

    Having trouble dieting? Blame your brain. University of Cambridge researchers found that key brain cells act as a trigger to prevent the body from burning calories when calories are limited. When food becomes available and you eat, the action of AGRP brain neurons is halted and our energy expenditure goes back up again to normal levels. If food is scarce, they turn our body into saving mode and stop us from burning fat. According to UPI, researchers say the findings could lead to the design of new and improved therapies to reduce overeating and obesity.

This hormone signals your brain that you are full. Yet when you ave less fat, your amount of leptin drops. Even though losing weight may be a struggle, it has been shown that losing excess weight reduces straing on blood vessels, increases blood flow to the brain, and reduces health risks, such as diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension.

  • Alzheimer's Can Be Prevented With Diet And Exercise - New Study

    A healthy diet, physical activity and normal body mass index have been connected to overall better health. Now a new study at the University of California Los Angeles suggests that combination of healthful choices may help prevent Alzheimer's disease According to a study published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, researchers at UCLA found eating well and being active can reduce the incidence of plaque and tangles in the brain associated with the onset of Alzheimer's disease. The buildup of beta-amyloid plaques in the space between nerve cells in the brain and knotted threads of tau protein in brain cells are indicators of the condition. The delay of their formation in patients inclined to develop Alzheimer's could help in its prevention.
