Researchers at Oregon State University announced today that they have essentially stopped the progression of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease, for nearly two years in one type of mouse model used to study the disease.
Liver damage caused by the typical “Western diet” – one high in fat, sugar and cholesterol that’s common in developed countries such as the United States – may be difficult to reverse even if diet is generally improved, a new study shows.
People with metabolic syndrome need more than normal levels of vitamin E, but new research from the Linus Pauling Institute says this essential micronutrient is not finding its way into tissues where it is most needed.
A growing body of evidence suggests that two natural compounds, vitamin D and xanthohumol (isolated from the hops plant), have the ability to address imbalances in gut microbiota that may set the stage for obesity and metabolic syndrome.
A study at Oregon State University indicates that both a high-fat and a high-sugar diet, compared to a normal diet, cause changes in gut bacteria that appear related to a significant loss of “cognitive flexibility".
Researchers at Oregon State University have discovered how vitamin E deficiency may cause neurological damage by interrupting a supply line of specific nutrients and robbing the brain of the “building blocks” it needs to maintain neuronal health.
