It has long been established that gut bacteria are largely connected to immune function and metabolic health. However, researchers have only scratched the surface when it comes to their role in thinking, boosting overall mood, and addressing depression and other mental health conditions. A trio of studies confirms the favorable action of probiotics in tackling the growing problem of depression and anxiety disorders
Increasingly, it is hard to find honey being used in foods or as a sweetener. Instead, sugar and corn-derived high fructose corn syrup has displaced it. But honey is vastly different than sugar.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that attacks joints, bones, organs, and more. RA drugs have terrible side effects and aren't very effective. Here are 10 proven ways to relieve RA naturally.
Researchers from UCLA's Geffen School of Medicine have determined that consuming a milk fermented with probiotics changed the brain activity of women, producing positive changes in signalling pathways along with emotional responses
New research confirms that breastfeeding increases a certain species of oral bacteria, and these oral bacteria inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria that infect gums and cause dental decay.
Researchers from the New York University School of Medicine's Department of Pediatrics have determined that children given antibiotics prior to five months of age have a significantly higher risk of becoming obese later in life.
Alarmingly, about 85% of people with depression also experience some anxiety; about 90% of people with anxiety suffer some depression
Do probiotic supplements really work? What does the peer-reviewed research reveal?
Millions of Americans take over the counter painkillers like Advil or Aleve without realizing they can damage the gut, leading to leaky gut syndrome. Here's how you can heal it...
Ultimately, our bodies tell a very different story of our origins and need for cooperation with other cellular communities (i.e. probiotics) than the human ego, and its various anthropocentric explanations of who we are and where we came from
New research finds that our gut bacteria linked with negative thinking - and supplementing probiotics can reduce negative thoughts.
Leaky Gut Syndrome is a rapidly growing condition that millions of people struggle with and don't even know it can lead to many other health conditions.
Candida (Yeast) is a late sign of impaired gut health.
Candida is associated with craving simple carbs (white foods--pasta, bread, rice, and all sugars) which feed the yeast. Candida develops for many reasons. Basically, it is a 'helper' attempting to create balance in the gut, generally due to antibiotics, preservatives, heavy metal toxins and sterile foods.
We can make candida obsolete and unnecessary by rebalancing gut microbials.
Koreans have been enjoying salted and fermented vegetables known as kimchi for about 2000 years. But this spicy dish is much more than a condiment. More than 130 studies attest to the amazing healing properties of this humble food
We can now add yet another benefit of raw honey: The presence of a particular probiotic bacteria that bees harvest from the flower along with the nectar. Turns out this probiotic also boosts immunity
A groundbreaking new study finds probiotic ‘germs’ may provide an alternative to vaccination for malaria – a finding that challenges fundamental tenets of both vaccinology and germ theory.
Ever wonder why some people seem to have more inflammation, fatigue and obesity than others despite their best efforts? New research has discovered the answer relates to the diversity of our gut’s probiotic bacteria.
For 95% of our evolutionary history, we were hunter-gatherers. What was our microbial-host relationship like for the duration of that experience? A new study on the Hadza people finally sheds light on this fascinating topic.
Italian researchers have confirmed that a certain oral probiotic species significantly reduces ear infections, throat infections and tonsillitis among children and adults with recurring infections.
There are gaping holes in vaccine science, especially the critical role of microflora in mediating vaccine effects, including adverse ones.
Researchers from the University of California at San Diego have found the best defense against infections from MRSA and other hospital-acquired infections. Hint: We are already wearing it, unless we kill it off with antibiotics.
There are so many proven health benefits to probiotics, but immune health is a primary feature. Pat Robinson of Heal Thyself! has done organized the research contained on GreenMedInfo.com, with a focus on its immune benefits.
