Lack of vitamin D is linked to diabetic neuropathy

- a disabling and potentially life-threatening complication

Lack of vitamin D is linked to diabetic neuropathyType 2 diabetes is currently treated with a number of different medical drugs. However, the medicine is not able to deal with the underlying causes of the disease that affects most organ systems. A Chinese study has demonstrated that vitamin D deficiency is linked to diabetic neuropathy, which is an insidious condition and is associated with inflammation, pain, amputation, circulatory failure, and early death.
It is important to get plenty of vitamin D at all times in order to prevent and treat the early phases of diabetic neuropathy.

Slim with protein and Q10

Slim with protein and Q10If you want to lose weight and/or maintain your ideal weight, it is important to focus on the right proteins, on Q10, and on brown fat cells, as it all boils down to having an effective metabolism and proper energy utilization.

If you plan to lose weight in the New Year, forget all about counting calories or working up a sweat in the local gym, unless that is what you want. The first thing you should look at is the distribution of white and brown fat tissue in your body and how you can increase the burning of fat with a few adjustments.

Statin user?

You may want to consider taking a Q10 supplement

Statin user? You may want to consider taking a Q10 supplementStatins do more than lower your cholesterol. They have an array of side effects but you can effectively counteract them by taking coenzyme Q10 together with your drug.

Has your physician told you to take cholesterol-lowering statins? Well, it has to be said that these drugs are highly effective for lowering cholesterol. What you may not know, however, is that statins also lower levels of coenzyme Q10, a vital substance which all your cells need to produce energy. Coenzyme Q10 and cholesterol are synthesized in the liver and share the same biochemical pathway, and statins work by blocking this pathway. When levels of coenzyme Q10 go down, you risk a number of side effects that occur when the body's cells suddenly produce too little energy to function normally.

Make sure to get a good night’s sleep

it’s the ultimate and essential “brainwash”

Groundbreaking research reveals that the human brain is detoxified during our sleep. On the other hand, toxins accumulate in the brain if we suffer from sleep disturbances, increasing our risk of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and numerous other conditions. If you are not helped by the most common guidelines for better sleep, supplementing with the “sleep hormone” melatonin may be an obvious solution that even offers plenty of positive “side effects.”

Make sure to get a good night’s sleep  it’s the ultimate and essential “brainwash”According to Maiken Nedergaard, a Danish professor in neurology, the human brain works very hard during the daytime in order to help us stay active and to process all the information that we get from our surroundings. Also, the brain is highly energy-consuming, and it is the enormous energy turnover that results in toxic by-products, including poisonous protein substances that are difficult to break down. When we are awake and active the brain is too busy to clean up the mess, so to speak, and that is why need to sleep.

Supplements of Q10 may help people with liver disease

Supplements of Q10 may help people with liver diseaseResearchers have found that sufferers of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) can protect themselves by taking the vitamin-like substance coenzyme Q10.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a chronic liver disorder that involves inflammation of the liver and may worsen through a four-stage progression that may eventually lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer. The condition, which is characterized by a build-up of fat in the liver cells and typically affects people who are diabetic or overweight. There is currently no medical treatment for NAFLD but science has found that the vitamin-like substance coenzyme Q10 may be able to improve the liver’s fat metabolism and reduce the inflammation.

Laptops and mobile phones in bed disturb your sleep

Laptops and mobile phones in bed disturb your sleep  Texting, reading emails and surfing the net in bed is bad for your health. The blue light that is emitted from the devices inhibits sleep and work performance, according to scientific experts.  Many people bring their mobile phones, laptop computers, or tablets to bed to text, read emails, or surf the net. This, scientists say, is bad for one’s health. The blue light that is emitted from the screens affects human biology in a way that inhibits sleep and work performance.  Suppresses melatonin What happens specifically is that the light exposure suppresses the body’s production of a sleep-inducing hormone called melatonin, which is secreted by a gland situated in the center of the brain, the so-called pineal gland. Normally, when it gets dark outside, the pineal gland increases its production of melatonin which makes us feel drowsy and go to sleep. However, by exposing ourselves to artificial light late in the evening, our melatonin release is disturbed.  Regulates our sleep pattern Melatonin is the stuff that regulates our perception of day and night – also called our 24-hour clock or circadian rhythm. It regulates our sleep pattern. It is more than a natural sleep inducer, however. Melatonin is also a powerful antioxidant that protects our cells against damage, and researchers have actually found a link between low melatonin levels and cancer.  Increased cancer risk A 2012 study that was published in Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that women with nightshift work were 40% more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer than women who had never worked nightshifts. More than 18,000 women took part in the study. The researchers are not sure exactly what mechanisms are at play but they suspect that the lower melatonin levels in people who work where they would normally be sleeping could interfere with melatonin’s role in cell growth and repair.  The use of supplements Many people with nightshift work find that melatonin helps them fall asleep in the daytime where the daylight would normally create problems in that respect. Also, melatonin has proven itself useful for transatlantic travelers with jetlag who need to adjust their internal clock to the time difference. Melatonin is a safe supplement that can be used to alleviate sleep disturbances or to take in situations where your melatonin levels are likely to be lower than normal.
