GABA | Ask the ND with Dr. Jeremy Wolf
Dr. Wolf gives you the rundown on Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA) and its effects on neurotransmitters. #Gaba #stressrelief #supplements The body uses chemicals called Neurotransmitters to communicate information between neurons. Essentially, it is how cells communicate with one another. These chemicals also communicate important information throughout the brain and body. There are many different chemicals in the body that act as neurotransmitters. In this episode we are going to talk about Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid, more commonly known as GABA. This neurotransmitter may be indicated for a variety of conditions. What is it, where is it found? - GABA is made in brain cells from Glutamate - It’s our body’s major inhibitory NT and helps to balance out the body’s excitatory neurotransmitters, basically acting like a brake to calm the nervous system. Without the proper amounts of GABA our nerve cells would fire too often. Individuals with lower levels of GABA tend to feel on edge, stressed and anxious. GABA may help individuals to calm and relaxed. Attention deficit disorder is a developmental disorder characterized by a deficit in behavioral inhibition. Recent research has concluded that there may be a link between ADD and a deficiency of GABA. Bodybuilders are beginning to use GABA as it may help to increase levels of HGH if taken before exercise. Although GABA is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter of the brain, it is produced at high levels in pancreatic islets cells, making it possible beneficial for Type 1 diabetes. In general a dosage between 500-1000mg of GABA taken daily has been recommended for individual who are looking to be more relaxed. There is controversy to whether or not GABA supplements are effective because they may or may not cross the Blood Brain Barrier. This barrier is a system in the brain that separates circulating blood from reaching your brain tissue. In other words it prevents chemicals and drugs in the blood from reaching the brain.

L-Theanine Review: 7 Days on L-Theanine
This is my review of L-Theanine after taking it for 7 Days: After doing a lot of research myself on all different types of Nootropics (Cognitive Enhancers) I decided to try the most basic Nootropic that comes to mind and certainly the most efficacious and inexpensive: L-Theanine. It is a naturally occurring amino acid found in Green Tea and contributes to feelings of calmness by increasing GABA release in the brain. It's totally safe to use everyday even in high doses reported by many case studies. The many benefits reported of L-Theanine is that it helps with: stress, anxiety, mood, focus, depression and some ADHD symptoms. Dosage Information: 200-400mg L-Theanine daily, taken 1 or 2 times a day.

In this video you'll discover the nootropics benefits of L-Theanine. Including why we use L-Theanine as a nootropic, recommended dosage, side effects and clinical research. L-Theanine is a non-dietary amino acid found in green tea (camellia sinensis), and the mushroom Xerocomus badius. Structurally, L-Theanine is similar to the neurotransmitters l-glutamate and l-glutamine. L-Theanine is one of the very few nootropics that can boost alpha brain waves promoting alert relaxation. And theta brain waves associated with creativity and relief from trauma. L-Theanine increases the neurotransmitters GABA, serotonin and dopamine levels in your brain. Producing an energizing and calming effect. And improving cognition and memory. L-Theanine is also an antagonist of NMDA receptors and can inhibit synaptic release of glutamate. Protecting your brain from over-stimulation caused by glutamate, and possible glutamate toxicity. Your unique neurochemistry including neurotransmitters, brain waves, brain structure and even regional brain activity will influence your response to L-Theanine. Most neurohackers report a calming effect within 30 – 45 minutes of taking L-Theanine. Cognition gets a boost, and energy levels rise without the jitteriness caused by stimulants like caffeine. Some even report L-Theanine has stopped their anxiety and panic attacks. Most report an overall improvement in sense of well-being and quality of life. And nearly all remark on better quality sleep.

In this video you'll discover the nootropics benefits of Berberine. Including which types of Berberine make the best nootropic, recommended dosage, side effects and clinical research. Berberine is well known and proven for reversing type-2 diabetes. But few people realize how powerful this supplement can be for reducing sugar cravings, eliminating late afternoon energy crashes, lifting brain fog, and boosting memory and mood. Berberine activates the enzyme AMPK which is the master metabolic switch in each one of your cells. This directly influences lipid, glucose and energy imbalances. Activating AMPK by adding Berberine to your nootropic stack boosts mental energy, provides quicker thinking, and even repairs and maintains healthy brain cells. Berberine also inhibits acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity in your brain. Increasing levels of acetylcholine has a direct influence on concentration, focus and memory. Berberine is at least as effective in controlling blood sugar and insulin sensitivity as metformin. The latest research confirms user experience that supplementing with Berberine can help with depression, help prevent Alzheimer's, help control several types of cancer, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and help with weight loss. This indepth Berberine review covers: 00:26 Berberine as a nootropic 04:23 How does Berberine work in the brain? 07:13 Why you need Berberine 08:38 Berberine benefits 10:22 How does Berberine feel when you take it as a supplement? 12:07 Berberine Clinical Research 14:39 Recommended dosage for Berberine 16:23 Berberine side effects 18:20 Types of Berberine supplements to buy For more on Berberine including a full transcript of this video and links to clinical studies, go to: http://nootropicsexpert.com/berberine/ For a full list of all the popular nootropics used today, go to: http://nootropicsexpert.com/nootropics-list/ I upload new videos every week providing individual nootropic reviews, and tips on the best nootropic stacks no matter what your brain optimization goals.

GABA puts the brakes on TRPV1
Heidelberg University: At the Institute of Pharmacology, CellNetworks member Prof. Jan Siemens and his research group explore sensory mechanisms at the molecular level. In their paper, published in Cell in 2015, they discovered a molecular mechanism in nerve cells which reverts the sensitized state of the capsaicin receptor TRPV1. With the activiation of GABAB1, the receptor forms a complex with TRPV1 to counteract inflammatory pain. Harnessing this mechanism for anti-pain therapy may prevent adverse effects associated with currently availabe TRPV1 blockers. http://bit.ly/2bQ60W4

L Glutamine Benefits and the Dangers!
Click on the link below for a free video guide to dietary supplements and alternative medicine! http://utahtexans.com/ In this video I'm going to share some of the leading l glutamine benefits, as well as the dangers. Your body uses something known as amino acids to build things for example your hair, skin and nails. There are non essential amino acids and essential amino acids. L Glutamine is nonessential, so you your body can create it. Essential ones you can not create and thus need to get it from food. If the body produces this amino acid, you might be wondering why you should take it in a supplement or why should I take more of it. One reason is because in times of stress, which nowadays we are under a lot right your body may not produce enough of it. Also, there is some evidence that taking more of it will yield some nifty health benefits. I would argue that everyone at some time in their life struggled with body fat. L Glutamine can help by improving metabolism, which burns off fat quicker like when your a kid. It also instantly fuels the brain with amino acids, that may prevent food cravings. A study in the "European Journal of Clinical Nutrition" found that obese women who took glutamine supplements for four weeks lost weight even without changing their diet and exercise habits. Another nifty benefit is that it improves the immune system, who doesn't want to improve that right? There was evidence that glutamine supplements increase the white blood cell count of patients in the 2010 issue of the journal of Nutrition. Lastly, some people feel it could improve resistance training, possibly giving them more energy. I looked at tons of studies and the truth is there is conflicting information. I'm not sure if it does or doesn't. If you are wondering about the dangers, the good news is that there really isn't that many dangers. Like nearly all supplements the biggest dangers is overdosing. This could cause problems in the intestines such as stomach pains, nausea and constipation. The thing with supplements is that it can be confusing. The reality is that there are some crap out there. To make things a little easier for you I created a report and video guide. That shares many tips that many people don't know about and can be tremendously helpful. It's completely free and well why not check it out right? You can learn more by clicking on the link below. http://utahtexans.com/

Where is it found Precursor, L-DOPA is synthesized in brain and kidneys Dopamine functions in several parts of the peripheral nervous system In blood vessels, it inhibits norepinephrine release and acts as a vasodilator (relaxation) In the pancreas, it reduces insulin production In the digestive system, it reduces gastrointestinal motility and protects intestinal mucosa In the immune system, it reduces lymphocyte activity. Symptoms of excess & insufficiency... Most antipsychotic drugs are dopamine antagonists Dopamine antagonist drugs are also some of the most effective anti-nausea agents Changes in dopamine levels may also cause age-related changes in cognitive flexibility. Symptoms of excess & insufficiency Insufficient dopamine... Nutritional building blocks Eating a diet high in magnesium and tyrosine rich foods will ensure you’ve got the basic building blocks needed for dopamine production. Medications Most common dopamine antagonists (positive symptoms) Risperdone, Haldol, Zyprexa Metoclopramide (Reglan) is an antiemetic and antipsychotic Dopamine Hypothesis Patients with schizophrenia do not typically show measurably increased levels of brain dopamine activity Other dissociative drugs, notably ketamine and phencyclidine that act on glutamate NMDA receptors (and not on dopamine receptors) can produce psychotic symptoms. Those drugs that do reduce dopamine activity are a very imperfect treatment for schizophrenia: they only reduce a subset of symptoms, while producing severe short-term and long-term side effects GABA Mechanism of action/purpose Anti-anxiety, Anti-convulsant GABA is made from glutamate GABA functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter – Glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter GABA does the opposite and tells the adjoining cells not to “fire” Where they are found Close to 40% of the synapses in the human brain work with GABA and therefore have GABA receptors. Medications Drugs that act as allosteric modulators of GABA receptors (known as GABA analogues or GABAergic drugs) or increase the available amount of GABA typically have relaxing, anti-anxiety, and anti-convulsive effect Gabapentin (neurontin) is a GABA analogue used to treat epilepsy and neurotic pain. Benzodiazepines and Barbiturates including GHB, Valium, Xanax Serotonin Mechanism of action/purpose Helps regulate Mood Sleep patterns Appetite Pain Serotonin Serotonin Serotonin Insufficiency Depression Anxiety Pain sensitivity Acetylcholine Their mechanism of action/purpose In lower amounts, ACh can act like a stimulant by releasing norepinephrine (NE) and dopamine (DA). Memory Motivation Higher-order thought processes Sexual desire and activity Sleep Acetylcholine Symptoms of excess Depression (all symptoms) Nightmares Mental Fatigue Anxiety Inverse relationship between serotonin and acetylcholine Insufficiency Alzheimers/dementia Parkinsons Impaired cognition, attention, and arousal Cholinergic and GABAergic pathways are intimately connected in the hippocampus and basal forebrain complex. It is not always about increasing a neurotransmitter. Sometimes you need to decrease it. Human brains try to maintain homeostasis and too much or too little can be bad A balanced diet will provide the brain the necessary nutrients in synergystic combinations

Forgotten Beneficial Benefits of Taurine - The "Wonder Molecule”- Conditionally Essential Amino Acid
Taurine is a type of amino acid found throughout the body. It is particularly concentrated in the brain, eyes, heart and muscles. Unlike most other amino acids, it is not used to build proteins in the body. It is classified as a “conditionally essential” amino acid. Your body can produce some amount of taurine, and it is also found in some foods. However, certain individuals may benefit from taking a supplement. Taurine is a non-protein amino acid that is sulfur-bearing and crucial for the metabolism of fats. It is necessary for building skeletal muscles, the central nervous system, retinas, and for cardiovascular function. Some researchers refer to it as a “wonder molecule”. Here are the research-backed beneficial effects of taurine. Taurine is effective at treating fatty-liver disease in children with simple obesity. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8915401 Research shows a link between higher taurine levels and significantly lower rates of death from heart disease, as well as reduced cholesterol and blood pressure. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2586397/ Taurine was found to be neuroprotective against sodium fluoride-induced biochemical and behavioral effects in rats. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27840156 Taurine may improve blood sugar control and have benefits against diabetes, in particular neuropathy. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19602579 Taurine has been found helpful in obesity, and diabetes. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27857215 It can protect liver cells against free radicals and toxin damage. In one study, 2 grams of taurine 3 times per day reduced markers of liver damage while decreasing oxidative stress. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26659465 In one human study, 12% of participants supplementing with taurine completely eliminated ringing in their ears, which is associated with hearing loss. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3256861 It alleviates adverse effects on eyes from computer use and reduces visual fatigue. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14752617 Researchers highlight the potential use of taurine as a therapeutic molecule for age-related muscle loss. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27875962 It may be potentially helpful in treating breast cancer. In one study, it reduced breast cancer rates from 80% down to 40% in rats. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26851007 Taurine appears to work by binding to the brain’s GABA receptors, which play a key role in controlling and calming the central nervous system. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20804588 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18727952 Taurine is also a major ingredient in energy drinks and there may be concern that taurine contributes to some of the ill effects from the high consumption of these drinks. The good news is that there’s no evidence for taurine’s involvement in any adverse outcome of consuming energy drinks. http://www.lifeextension.com/magazine/2013/6/the-forgotten-longevity-benefits-of-taurine/page-01 Certain health conditions can allegedly reduce taurine levels such as heavy metal toxicity, candida, infection, vitamin B6 and zinc deficiency. If you are concerned about getting enough – please Talk to your healthcare practitioner before taking taurine supplements. Try to get taurine by adding a variety of foods to your plate. Food sources of Taurine include: fish, lamb, eggs, meat and dairy A complete, nutrient-dense plant-based diet contains amino acids that help the liver make taurine. The Vegan food sources for making taurine include: Grapes, Brewer's yeast, Hemp seed, Quinoa, Buckwheat, Amaranth, Seaweed and red marine algae. Adults can produce taurine by a combination of cysteine with the help of pyridoxine-Vitamin B6, methionine and vitamin C. (Cysteine is found in red peppers, garlic, onions, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, oats, granola and wheat germs. B6 is in whole grain products, vegetables, and nuts. High levels of methionine can be found in Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds and butter, sesame seeds, oats and a huge long list of vegan foods.) http://gentleworld.org/optimizing-your-vegan-diet/ An average diet will provide about 40–400 mg of taurine per day. The most common supplemental dosage is 500–2,000 mg per day. As you can see, Taurine has a wide range of potential health benefits. Now you know why some researchers call taurine a “wonder molecule.” Source: https://examine.com/supplements/taurine/ Thank You for watching! 💕 Good Day and Good Health The Refreshing Point Forgotten Beneficial Benefits of Taurine - The "Wonder Molecule” - Conditionally Essential Amino Acid

3 Signs that You're Magnesium Deficient
Please Subscribe for 3x Videos Per Week + Live Broadcasts! http://ThomasDeLauer.com 3 Signs that You're Magnesium Deficient Causes of Deficiency Depleted soil conditions mean that plants (and meat from animals that feed on these plants) are lower in magnesium. Use of chemicals like fluoride and chlorine in the water supply make magnesium less available in water since these chemicals can bind to magnesium Both a high sugar intake and elevated insulin levels (which can result from a high intake of refined carbs, including sugar) have been shown to increase the excretion of magnesium by the kidneys, by inhibiting tubular reabsorption (the same process that leads to calcium excretion) and by guzzling through the body’s magnesium reserves during sugar metabolism *Tubular reabsorption is the process by which solutes and water are removed from the tubular fluid and transported into the blood* Partly why people with diabetes or chronically high insulin tend to have higher magnesium requirements and more rapid magnesium depletion 3 Signs of Magnesium Deficiency - Cramps/Tight Muscles, Anxiety/Stress, Sleeplessness Cramps/Tight Muscles Magnesium directly interacts with your muscle tissue through a process called ion transportation. When magnesium contacts your cell membranes, it bonds with specific receptor sites that open up the cell membrane and allow other mineral ions to enter, such as calcium and potassium. These ions help regulate muscle contractions and might ease muscle tension Too much calcium: Calcium and magnesium have a partnership in the body - calcium causes muscles to contract and magnesium causes them to relax. If there is too much calcium in your body, which is common in the typical American diet, –there won’t be enough magnesium to balance out the calcium –so your muscles won’t be able to properly relax (3) Sleeplessness In order to fall asleep your body and brain need to relax Magnesium aids this process by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, the system responsible for getting you calm and relaxed Magnesium regulates neurotransmitters, which send signals throughout the nervous system and brain and regulates melatonin, which guides sleep-wake cycles in your body It also binds to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors and activates them. GABA is the neurotransmitter responsible for quieting down nerve activity A lack of magnesium can result in low GABA levels, and when GABA is low, your brain gets stuck in the “on” position and it becomes impossible to relax (4) Magnesium also plays a part in helping you achieve deep and restful sleep as well (6) Anxiety/Stress Increasing GABA not only promotes sleep, but also reduces anxiety and stress Low GABA is associated with numerous stress-related disorders including generalized anxiety disorder, panic attacks, and irritable bowel syndrome And, as mentioned, magnesium is important for binding and activating GABA receptors. Without adequate magnesium, we are unable to effectively activate GABA receptors and utilize GABA effectively Magnesium regulates cortisol A 2012 report, published in the Journal of Neuropharmacology, Magnesium deficiency caused an increase in the production of cortisol in the brains of the mice, specifically by activating the paraventricular hypothalamic nucleus, a part of the brain that controls responses to stress and anxiety Concluded: Magnesium calms your nervous system and prevents excessive cortisol by restricting its release and acting as a filter to prevent it from entering the brain (7) References 1) Magnesium — Health Professional Fact Sheet.

https://www.drlam.com/blog/taurine/1223/ This is Dr. Lam, founder of DrLam.com. In this article, we will go through an amino acid called Taurine. Taurine is an important substrate in the adrenal recovery toolbox because it is a natural diuretic on one hand and is also a sleep aid on the other hand. So for a woman with PMS and have fluid retention, this might be a good tool. Many people also suffer from Adrenal Fatigue insomnia and this can also be helpful and we will go through this so you can learn how to use this compound properly.

"Keto Brain Hack" Ketogenic Diet Effects on the Brain (Dr. Perlmutter/D'Agostino)
Sources and recommended reading “Grain Brain” David Perlmutter - https://amzn.to/2QJwZZ7 “Brain Maker” David Perlmutter - https://amzn.to/2QN8fit “Keto Clarity” Jimmy Moore - https://amzn.to/2QQbyW3 A new addition to the "Ketone Benefits Series" Most of the research included is from Dr. David Perlmutter from his books "Grain Brain" and "Brain Maker", as well as research from Dr. Dominic D'Agostino. The short term effects of ketone production, through ketogenic diet or supplementation of exogenous ketones and medium chain triglycerides, have been shown to almost immediately enhance memory, clarity, attention, alertness and cognition. Countless tests have been done correlating heightened brain function to the use of fatty acids as the primary substrate for metabolism. These results prove ketones to be one of the most effective and side effect free "brain hacks" today. Here's why: Through the breakdown of fatty acids in the liver, ketones are produced to be used as fuel throughout the body and have been found to act as a form of "rocket fuel" for the brain. In comparison to glucose, the most common substrate for brain metabolism in a standard western diet, ketones are a far more efficient fuel source, leaving fewer detrimental byproducts and using less oxygen in the energy production process. A large reason we see such drastic improvements in brain function under the influence of ketones is that cellular respiration is improved, and mitochondrial biogenesis is up-regulated in the brain. Which means, this alternative fuel source is not only fueling a more efficient generator but stimulating the growth of more generators to produce more energy, resulting in improvements in cognition, memory and clarity. As Dr. David Perlmutter states in his NY Times Best Selling Book "Grain Brain", "it stimulates the growth of mitochondria and thus increases metabolic efficiency." Another big issue with glucose as a primary fuel source for the brain is the byproducts produced during glycolysis, or the breakdown of glucose for energy. It has been shown that glucose fuel production results in high amounts of glutamate buildup, which is the major excitatory neurotransmitter found in the central nervous system. Build up of glutamate results in over excitement of neurons in the brain, and manifests as brain fog and inability to focus. Ketone research has shown that the process of using ketones as fuel in the brain promotes pathways in which glutamate is converted to glutamine, which is a substrate for the production of GABA, the most prominent inhibitory neurotransmitter of the central nervous system. In short, the use of ketones in the brain, takes the detrimental byproducts of glucose that hinder cognition, and turns it into a neurotransmitter that promotes focus and heightened cognition. Perhaps it is easiest to see the brain effects of ketones by looking at extreme cases. We have seen that ketones are able to reach areas of the brain that otherwise can't be by glucose due to insulin resistance in Alzheimers patients. Even in relatively "healthy" brains small amounts of insulin resistance could result in lack of available energy causing impaired brain function. The metabolic pathway opened by ketones can bypass insulin dependency and wake dormant areas of the brain, improving memory, mental clarity and cognition. When we talk about the efficiency of any sort of aerobic metabolism, we must consider the amount of oxygen consumed in the energy production process. Another incredible "brain hack" effect of ketones and ketogenic diets is the improvement in the ratio of oxygen input to energy output. Meaning the process of creating energy from ketones takes less oxygen per resulting unit of energy, or ATP, than glucose. Dr. Dominic D'Agostino has done more work than anyone in the area of oxygen consumption in the brain and ketone effects on regulation. He has found that, "Ketones preserve brain metabolism in the face of an oxidative challenge", and in relation to the oxygen efficiency that ketones provide, he has found that breath hold duration improves drastically by default under ketogenic metabolism in the brain. In the case of under water divers, the time spent holding a single breath under water has nearly doubled, which is a great representation of the oxygen efficiency of ketones. These are a few main contributors to the noticeable mental and cognitive improvements prompted by a ketogenic diet or ketogenic supplementation. There are a wide range of benefits from ketones covered in other videos in this series, as well as benefits from avoiding excess carbohydrates, which come hand in hand with a diet that relies heavily on fat metabolism. Until next time... Keep going against the grain!

Leptin and the neural circuit regulation food intake and glucose metabolism
Leptin and the neural circuit regulation food intake and glucose metabolism Air date: Wednesday, January 11, 2017, 3:00:00 PM Category: WALS - Wednesday Afternoon Lectures Runtime: 00:57:39 Description: NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series The discovery of leptin has led to the elucidation of a robust physiologic system that maintains fat stores at a relatively constant level. Leptin is a peptide hormone secreted by adipose tissue in proportion to its mass. This hormone circulates in blood and acts on the hypothalamus to regulate food intake and energy expenditure. When fat mass falls, plasma leptin levels fall stimulating appetite and suppressing energy expenditure until fat mass is restored. When fat mass increases, leptin levels increase, suppressing appetite until weight is lost. By such a mechanism, total energy stores are stably maintained within a relatively narrow range. Recessive mutations in the leptin gene are associated with massive obesity in mice and some humans. Treatment with recombinant leptin markedly reduces food intake and body weight. The low leptin levels in patients with leptin mutations are also associated with multiple abnormalities including infertility, diabetes, and immune abnormalities all of which are corrected by leptin treatment. These findings have established important links between energy stores and many other physiologic systems and led to the use of leptin as a treatment for an increasing number of other human conditions including a subset of obesity, some forms of diabetes including lipodystrophy and hypothalamic amenorrhea, the cessation of menstruation seen in extremely thin women. Identification of a physiologic system that controls energy balance establishes a biologic basis for obesity. Recent studies have explored the relationship between leptin and the reward value of food. In addition, new methods for identifying neurons activated by leptin and other stimuli have been developed as have methods for noninvasively activating cells using radio waves. These new approaches are being applied to studies of the neural processes that control feeding, a complex motivational behavior.

10 REASONS TO START DRINKING GREEN TEA EVERY DAY You’ve probably heard that green tea is one of the healthiest drinks you can have, but do you know why? What makes this ancient beverage so beneficial to your health, and how does it affect your body when consumed regularly? please subscribe, click the bell and watch this video until the end to know the complete information. Green tea was first considered as a costly drink in ancient China, enjoyed only by the wealthy and royalty. But, after the fall of the Mongolian empire, everyone started enjoying it. Today, no one is stopping you from purchasing and brewing some green tea. Yet, buying some of this precious tea might have never crossed your mind, that is, by now. what makes it so healthy ? This tea is loaded with polyphenols which help reduce inflammation and fight cancer. The large amounts of the natural antioxidants called catechins help prevent free radical damage, thus preventing premature aging and many diseases. One of its most potent compounds is Epigallocatechin Gallate or EGCG. In fact, it is one of the main reasons why this tea is so healthy. Moreover, green tea contains many essential vitamins and minerals. what happens to your body when you drink green tea regularly ? Here are several reasons why you should drink green tea more often. 1. LOWERS THE RISK OF DIABETES. Drinking green tea cuts the risk of type 2 diabetes by 42%, according to a Japanese study. However, more studies are needed to prove this. 2. REDUCES CHOLESTEROL. Green tea can improve your LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. By reducing these risk factors, green tea lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease by 31%. 3. REDUCES THE RISK OF HEART DISEASE. The polyphenolic compounds, catechins in green tea help protect the cardiovascular system from damage. By reducing the bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels, it also reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke. 4. LOWERS THE RISK OF CANCER. Antioxidants help protect against the development of many types of cancer. And, since green tea is abundant in potent antioxidants, it’s logical that it could lower the risk of some types of cancer. One meta-analysis showed that drinking green tea reduces the risk of breast cancer by 20-30%. A different study discovered that it reduces the risk of prostate cancer by 48%. And, another meta-analysis concluded that it lowers the risk of colorectal cancer by 42%. Still, more research is needed to prove the green tea’s ability to help prevent the development of cancer. 5. IMPROVES DIGESTION. Green tea has anti-inflammatory properties, so it helps relieve digestive problems linked to ulcerative colitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and Crohn’s disease. 6. BOOSTS LIVER HEALTH. Consuming this tea regularly can help reduce the effects of alcohol on the liver. The high amounts of catechins in green tea could also help protect against liver tumors. 7. IMPROVES BRAIN FUNCTION. The caffeine in green tea helps improve mood, memory, reaction time, vigilance, and other aspects of brain function. What’s more, the amino acid L-theanine found in this tea boosts the ability of GABA – an inhibitory neurotransmitter with anti-anxiety effects. The combination of these compounds helps improve the brain function. 8. AIDS WEIGHT LOSS. By accelerating your metabolism, green tea helps you lose weight more quickly. There are even studies which prove that it helps reduce body fat, especially in the stomach area. One, in particular, showed that it helps reduce body weight, body fat percentage, belly fat, and waist circumference. 9. IMPROVES DENTAL HEALTH. Green tea contains plenty of catechins which are powerful enough to destroy bacteria and prevent viruses such as influenza virus. They can prevent the growth of the primary harmful bacteria in the mouth – Streptococcus mutans. What’s more, drinking the tea on a regular basis helps reduce the risk of caries and improve the dental health and breath. 10. MORE BENEFITS. Relieves arthritis symptoms, Treats genital warts, Prevents common cold and flu and Treats many skin problems. Make sure you choose a high-quality brand to get the maximum of these benefits.

Caffeine and Adenosine Receptors
We are all familiar with caffeine's stimulatory effects, but how does it actually work? Check out this episode of Medicurio to learn more about the world's most commonly used psychoactive drug. I ended off with saying how caffeine has a variety of medicinal uses, but didn't really go in depth. If you would like to learn more, continue reading. Caffeine as an adjuvant painkiller: Scientists aren't too sure how caffeine can boost the effects of various NSAIDs, but they have a few possible theories: caffeine may slow down the breakdown of NSAIDs, resulting in longer duration of their effect; block pain neurons that use adenosine as a neurotransmitter; or change a person's mood so that even though there is pain, the person doesn't really care about it. If you are interested, this Cochrane review (a paper that summarized the results of over 40 different studies) goes more in-depth into this phenomenon: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/14651858.CD009281.pub3/full Caffeine can prevent neurodegenerative disease: There have been studies that found a correlation between drinking a few cups of coffee a day and slower onset of neurodegenerative diseases, but it is still unclear how caffeine does this. If you recall from the video, when adenosine stimulates A2A receptors on wake-promoting neurons, those neurons increase in activity. A2A receptors are also found on other neurons and also increase their activity. The idea is that in neurodegenerative diseases, these neurons actually begin to become overworked and die off. When caffeine binds to A2A receptors, it actually allows them to rest, making caffeine a neuroprotective agent. Keep in mind that this is just one theory and may be shown to be completely wrong in a few years time when new research shows an entirely different mechanism, but it is the best guess that scientists have now.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR)
ALCAR boosts acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter tied to memory and overall brain function. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a precursor to acetylcholine in the presence of Coenzyme-A. ALCAR donates a “methyl group” to make acetylcholine. ALCAR also promotes brain energy by fueling your brain cell’s mitochondria. ALCAR works as a shuttle transport for fatty acids through cell membranes. Right to the cell powerplant mitochondria. ALCAR has been shown in clinical studies to help mild cognitive impairment, slow the rate of cognitive decline, help relieve Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, protects your brain from oxidative stress, and helps the symptoms of ED. Recommended nootropic dosage of ALCAR is 500 - 1,500 mg per day. See the full transcript for this video including links to clinical studies, forms available, side effects and detailed dosage instructions at http://nootropicsexpert.com/acetyl-l-carnitine/.

Glyphosate Pretending to be Glycine: Devastating Consequences - Stephanie Seneff, PhD
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the pervasive herbicide, Roundup. Glyphosate's inventor, Monsanto, has assured us that glyphosate is nearly nontoxic to humans. This is blatantly untrue. Glyphosate's toxicity is insidious, and it comes about mainly because glyphosate is a synthetic amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. When you replace glycine, an amino acid, with glyphosate, a synthetic amino acid, in a protein, often the protein no longer works as intended. Sometimes it can't be broken down and it accumulates in the brain, causing neurological disease. Other times, it is inactivated as an enzyme or it can't attach to a membrane. Glyphosate also pretends to be glycine at glycine receptors. Glycine is a neurotransmitter, but glyphosate fools the receptor and then doesn't behave as expected. This wreaks havoc on human physiology in multiple ways, leading to a nearly complete explanation for the strong correlations between the rise in glyphosate usage on crops and the increased incidence in a host of chronic modern diseases, including diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, ALS, adrenal insufficiency, anemia, spina bifida and autism. In this talk, I will try to keep the scientific jargon as simple as possible, while presenting an amazing story about biochemistry gone awry.

How severe, ongoing stress can affect a child's brain and body
(12 Jul 2017) LEADIN: Researchers are discovering that ongoing stress during early childhood can harm children's brains and lead to major illnesses in adulthood. Doctors, schools and scientists in the U.S. are now seeking ways to help children cope, in order to prevent damage from chronic stress. STORYLINE: A quiet, unsmiling girl crawls inside a carpeted cubicle, hugs a stuffed teddy bear tight, and turns her head away from the noisy classroom. The safe spaces, quiet times and breathing exercises for her and the other preschoolers at the Verner Center for Early Learning are designed to help children cope with intense stress so they can learn. Laura Martin, a mental health specialist at the Verner Center for Early Learning says: "They have the breathing activities, they have the peace table, they have the soft and safe space in the classroom where they can go have their big emotions. There's just a variety of different really intentional techniques that we use to help kids who have a history of adversity be regulated inside our classroom walls." Now experts hope these techniques will promote better health by protecting the youngsters' bodies and brains from stress so persistent that it becomes toxic Charles Nelson is a neuroscientist at Boston Children's Hospital. He says under normal stress situations - for a young child that could be getting an innoculation or hearing a loud thunderstorm - the stress response kicks in, briefly raising heart rate and levels of cortisol and other stress hormones. When stress is severe and ongoing, those levels may remain elevated, putting children in a persistent "fight or flight" mode. "We don't have exact figures on the number of kids exposed to toxic stress, but we do know that it numbers in the hundreds of thousands. Kids exposed to domestic violence, kids exposed to bullying in school, kids exposed to neighbourhood violence," he says. It's no secret that growing up in tough circumstances can be hard on children and lead to behaviour and learning problems. But many believe that ongoing stress during early childhood - from grinding poverty, neglect, parental substance abuse and other adversity - can smoulder beneath the skin, damaging the brain and leading of the major causes of death and disease in adulthood, including heart attacks and diabetes. Recent studies suggest that toxic stress changes the body's metabolism and contributes to internal inflammation, which can raise risk for developing diabetes and heart disease. In 2015, Brown University researchers reported finding elevated levels of inflammatory markers in saliva of children who had experienced abuse or other adversity. Experiments in animals and humans also suggest persistent stress may alter brain structure in regions affecting emotions and regulating behaviour. Nelson and others have done imaging studies showing these regions are smaller than usual in severely traumatised children. "So we know that high levels of toxic stress that occur early in life and then continue can lead to an increased risk of diabetes and heart disease as well," says Nelson. According to Dr. Tina Hahn, a paediatrician at the Caro Medical Center in Michigan, the damage caused to children from toxic stress can be as severe as the damage from meningitis or polio or pertussis. Hahn routinely questions families about stresses at home, educates them about the risks and helps them find ways to manage. "Dealing with and preventing toxic stress is the most important thing that we can do in medicine," she says. While some in the medical communities dispute the research, paediatricians, mental health specialists, educators and community leaders are increasingly involved in what is called "trauma-informed" care.

Our quest is to understand the function of GABA and the extrasynaptic-like channels in the brain, in the endocrine pancreas and in lymphocytes. How does the GABA signaling come about, what are the channels made of, how do they operate and how can they be modulated. These channels are targeted by drugs important in the clinic such as benzodiazepines, barbiturates and anesthetics. They are important in healthy individuals but do also have a role in diseases like type 1 and type 2 diabetes. GABA is released from the insulin-containing beta cells and activates GABA channels on the beta and the glucagon-secreting alpha cells resulting in modified hormone secretion. However, it is not known what the effective physiological concentration of GABA in the endocrine pancreas is. Setting precisely the GABA concentration in the islet may be critical: 1. For the right balance between the insulin and the glucagon concentration in the blood, and 2. For protecting the beta cells from invading toxic lymphocytes. In intact human and rodent islets we attempt to construct the islet GABA affinity curve and determine the GABA sensitivity of the islet cells recording from single-channel (single molecule) recordings, similar to what we have done in hippocampampal neurons (Lindquist and Birnir, 2006; Zhet et al., 2011). If we are successful, the results will tell us what the functional GABA concentration range is in human islets and can potentially be used in preventive medicine regarding type 1 and type 2 diabetes and to develop new medicine and therapies to treat these diseases.

How to Overcome the Fear of Death - Health Anxiety
In this video I discuss how to overcome the fear of death that many of us deal with when having health anxiety. Whether you have health anxiety, GAD, depression, panic disorder/panic attacks, or general stress, the thought and fear of death probably crossed your mind. Even if you do not suffer from a mental illness, the fear of death or fear of dying might have come across your mind. My fear of death started at the age of 12 and lasted for 2 months into my 7th grade year of junior high. I became obssessed with how i would die and when i would die. I was so afraid of death it made me sick to my stomach and would just take long walks to think about something else. I didnt get any support from my family and was told I was too young to worry about death. Eventually school became busy and I returned to my normal thinking. When I had my first panic attack at 21, my life changed completely for the worst. I thought I was dying from a heart attack and from there continued into a health anxiety spiral of disaster. I was a hypochondriac and terrified of death. I thought I had every type of disease whether it be heart disease, cancer, diabetes, or hiv. Eventually I started to google what it was like to die. Surprisingly most people claimed it to be the most peaceful and natural thing in the world. This gave me hope. I then read of my many who had near death experiences who said the same. Some even claiming they were upset when they came back to life because they were so at peace after passing. We have nothing to fear but fear itself. This quote makes so much sense here. I should have just feared the fear of dying. The process might be painful, but I go through pain now and deal with it as it happens. When you fear death, you cripple yourself, stay unmotivated, you arent as productive, you are more unhealthy, and are more volunerable to stress and anxiety. Live each day like it is your last and live in the present. I wasted 4 years thinking about dying and now im doing alot more living!

Alzheimer Disease Frequency for Remedy
Alzheimer in medical terms is a neuro degenerative disorder that will causes cognitive impairment serious enough to interfere with daily life, such as the ability to recall memory and carry out a conversation properly. Alzheimer is an autosomal disorder, a hereditary condition that is pass down from parents to the next generation, the sufferers of this disease usually will not experience any sign of symptoms until they reach around 65 years old or over. They carry a mutation gene that causes building up a misfolded protein called amyloid, and researchers believed that this precursor protein is the main cause that the brain will start to shrink and neurons begins to die as the disease progress further. Medical Researchers have investigated the cause and discover that sometimes lifestyles factor are also contribute to Alzheimer’s development. In some studies, they concluded that losing just one night of sleep would cause an increase in beta-amyloid, a protein in the brain associated with impaired brain function and Alzheimer’s disease. Therefore, it is very important to have enough rest during the night, since sleeping helps clearing out the beta-amyloid out of the brain. This frequency will help speeding up eradicating all those amyloid accumulation over the years as well as stimulate neural proliferation, especially helpful for people who has been suffering from chronic insomnia. Even if you’re consider to be healthy, it’s recommended to listen to this frequency at least once a day in order to minimize the chances on receiving this life threatening condition.

ANXIETY,Ten Foods That Naturally Calm Anxiety
ANXIETY,Ten Foods That Naturally Calm Anxiety. Omega-3 fatty acids make your brain happy Doctors often treat anxiety with therapy and medications, but the answer to calming the condition could be hiding in plain sight: the foods we eat. Doctors and nutritionists are starting to understand more about how certain nutrients, or lack of them, affect the brain. "Our brain has very high energy and nutrient requirements," says clinical nutritionist and health coach Melissa Reagan Brunetti, CNC. "Nutritional deficiencies and dietary patterns can affect its function, and alter brain chemistry and the formulation of neurotransmitters—chemicals in the brain that can stimulate and calm." These neurotransmitters influence our mood as well as our appetite, she says. A study from Ohio State University showed one nutrient that's especially good for reducing anxious symptoms is omega 3 fatty acids, found in fatty fish like wild salmon, flaxseed, walnuts, and chia seeds. "Our brains need fat from dietary sources to function properly," Brunetti says. "If you are not eating a sufficient amount of beneficial fats, your brain will suffer." Here are more surprising omega 3-rich foods that add years to your life. Probiotics are good for the gut Surprisingly, another calming food source is probiotics. "Your gut bacteria is needed for production of neurotransmitters, including serotonin, dopamine, and GABA [gamma-aminobutyric acid], which all play a role in mood," Brunetti says. "The microbiome [gut bacteria] has a direct link to the brain and the immune system, so restoring balance in the gut of good and bad bacteria through use of probiotics can benefit the brain." Recent research has found that probiotics may actually work to treat, or even prevent, anxious feelings. You can either take a probiotic supplement or eat foods that have been fermented, a process which encourages good bacteria to grow, and has been shown in studies as a way how to calm anxiety. "I like to see patients eat more fermented foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, and kefir, as the kinds of bacteria in your gut influence anxiety," says Drew Ramsey, MD, a psychiatrist who specializes in using dietary changes to help balance moods, and author of Eat Complete. Another fermented food you probably already have in your fridge? Pickles! Could probiotics also be your best defense against spring allergies? Here's another reason antioxidants are superfoods: They can help quell anxious moods. "Antioxidants protect the brain against oxidative stress [free radicals]," Brunetti says. "Oxidative stress leads to inflammation, which can impair neurotransmitter production." Research by the State University of New York found that anxious symptoms are linked with a lower antioxidant state, and that antioxidants could actually help treat mood issues as well. So which nutrients are antioxidants, and which foods contain them? "Diets rich in beta-carotene like carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, spinach, and kale; vitamin C like citrus fruits, red peppers, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and strawberries; and vitamin E like almonds, avocado, spinach, sunflower seeds, spinach, and sweet potatoes, are essential for supporting optimal brain function," Brunetti says. Another powerful antioxidant Brunetti says is shown to combat anxious feelings is the trace mineral selenium, found in Brazil nuts, halibut, grass-fed beef, turkey, chicken, and eggs. Also, studies have shown that upping your zinc, which has antioxidant properties, leads to fewer anxious feelings. Cashews are a great source of zinc. Which antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables should you be eating? Another nutrient that might stave off anxious symptoms is magnesium. "Magnesium is a calming mineral that has been found to induce relaxation," Brunetti says. In an Austrian study with mice, diets low in magnesium increased anxious behaviors. Research has shown that magnesium may also help treat mental health issues in humans. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, inadequate magnesium reduces levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin, and antidepressants have been shown to increase magnesium in the brain—evidence of a positive link. "Magnesium can act at the blood brain barrier to prevent the entrance of stress hormones into the brain," psychiatrist Emily Deans, MD, writes on Psychology Today. "All these reasons are why I call magnesium 'the original chill pill.'" Dr. Ramsey suggests eating eggs and greens, like spinach and Swiss chard, for magnesium. Other sources include legumes, nuts, seeds, and avocado. Here are 10 signs you're not getting enough magnesium.

Actor Nick Mancuso on Neurotransmitter Support
Veteran actor Nick Mancuso discusses his ordeal with memory lapses and health issues related to a toxic exposure, and how Neurotransmitter support enhanced his memory and cognition. Neurotransmitter Support is Available at PreventDisease.com: http://preventdisease.com/hpp/zen-cart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=23&products_id=247 9 Essential Mood, Memory, and Cognitive Enhancers Are All Found in NEUROTRANSMITTER SUPPORT 1. ACETYL-L-CARNITINE: In a 2010 Tokyo study, the aged rats were supplemented with Acetyl-L-Carnitine to determine its effects on memory, learning capacity, and brain synaptic functions. For 3 months, 344 rats were given Acetyl-L-Carnitine (100 mg/kg bodyweight). At the end of the study, the scientsists concluded that Acetyl-L-Carnitine increases synaptic neurotransmission in the brain and consequently improves learning capacity in aging rats. 2. R-ALPHA LIPOIC ACID (R-ALA): R-ALA reduces cataract formation, and reduces oxidative stress in the heart muscle while raising levels in the heart and liver. It also lowers glucose levels by increasing insulin metabolism and decreases numbness in Diabetics, increases energy levels within the brain cells, can decrease LDL cholesterol and remove protein oxidation for a healthy heart, and inhibits free radicals more effectively than vitamin E. 3. L-THREONINE: Threonine is an essential amino acid and not synthesized by humans. Threonine supports cardiovascular, liver, central nervous, and immune system function. Threonine combines with the amino acids aspartic acid and methionine to help liver digest fats and fatty acids. L-threonine has been tried for ALS because, like BCAAs, it affects glutamate metabolism. Open trials and one double-blind study have shown some short-term improvement in symptoms. The research also demonstrated that symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), another disease that affects nerve and muscle, are alleviated with threonine treatment. Threonine is an immunostimulant, which promotes the growth of thymus gland. 4. L-TYROSINE: L-Tyrosine has been proposed as a treatment for various conditions in which mental function is impaired or slowed down, such as fatigue and depression. It has also been tried for attention deficit disorder (ADD). Preliminary evidence, including small, double-blind trials, suggests that tyrosine supplements may help fight fatigue and improve memory and mental function in people who are deprived of sleep or exposed to other forms of stress. 5. PANTOTHENIC ACID: Pantothenic acid is used in the manufacture of hormones, red blood cells, and acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter (a signal carrier between nerve cells). 6. CO ENZYME-Q-10: “C0-Q-10” prevents oxidation of the cell membrane and mitochondria within the cell, thereby preserving youthful neurological function, and protecting the capillaries from becoming fragile; it also enhances cerebral oxygenation. 7. METHYLCOBALAMIN: The neurologically-active form of vitamin B-12, Methylcobalamin is effective in slowing the progression of untreatable diseases and neurological aging. Japan’s scientific literature reveals 334 published studies on methylcobalamin; the studies consider the treatment beneficial for any neurological disease. For example, in patients with MS their cynocobalamin is destroyed, and methylcobalamin attempts to reverse this process. 8. DIMETHYLGLYCINE (DMG): DMG is a dietary supplement which supports the immune, circulatory, and cardiovascular systems. It is useful for controlling epileptic seizures, and for improving neurological functions, as well as muscle recovery and endurance. DMG is a nutrient that is found in the cells of both plants and animals. The human body produces DMG in very small amounts. Supplementing the diet with higher levels of DMG greatly improves the nutritional environment of the cell. DMG has been found effective in supporting immune system function and better utilization of oxygen at the cellular level. 9. GAMMA AMINO BUTYRIC ACID (GABA): The ability of the limbic system and the rest of the brain to communicate in an orderly manner depends critically on inhibition. GABA inhibits the cells from firing, diminishing the anxiety-related messages from reaching the cortex. GABA, glutamine and glycine are vital for energy and the smooth running of the brain functions. B6 (pyridoxine) is GABA's most important partner.
