Could pomegranates offer the key to new IBD treatments?

Studies of pomegranates, "the fruit of the gods," are increasingly revealing why they are so beneficial. Urolithin A, derived from pomegranates, and its synthetic equivalent could help treat inflammatory bowel disease, according to a new study. Pomegranates may contain the secret to better gut health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggest that…

Alzheimer’s: Could targeting this mechanism reverse memory decline?

A novel genetic approach that repairs broken connections between brain cells could lead to treatments that restore memory capacity in Alzheimer's disease. By using epigenetics, it may soon be possible to reverse memory loss in Alzheimer's disease. The new approach reverses changes to gene expression that tend to occur in the later stages of the…

Dementia: Could gut bacteria play a role?

As interest in gut bacteria peaks, they are implicated in yet another condition. Researchers recently identified stark differences in levels of specific gut bacteria in people with dementia. A new study links changes in gut bacteria to dementia. Our bodies swarm with microscopic visitors. On our skin, in our mouths, deep in our lungs, and,…

Could blocking these immune cells aid weight loss?

Scientists have uncovered a mechanism in a group of immune cells in the gut that can sway nutrient metabolism to favor fat storage over energy use. How does the gut's immune system influence weight loss? The finding may help explain why some people remain slim despite having eating habits that cause others to gain weight.…

Could stem cells reverse diabetes?

Diabetes is manageable with proper care, but no cure is yet available. Some scientists believe that transforming stem cells into insulin-secreting cells might offer hope. Stem cell researchers are attempting to crack diabetes. A new study, which features in the journal Stem Cell Reports, highlights research from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis,…

Could targeting this enzyme slow aging and related diseases?

Investigating an enzyme that stops cells from dividing could be a fruitful avenue for research into how to slow aging and treat aging-related diseases. Aging is inevitable, but can it be slowed? This was the conclusion that researchers at Kobe University in Japan came to after studying the enzyme D-amino acid oxidase (DAO) and its…

Could bone broth boost heart health?

Recently, bone broth has enjoyed a boost in popularity. To add to its new-found fame, a recent study concludes that it could have benefits for heart health, too. Bone broth may be fashionable, but is it good for your heart? Bone broth is a soup containing brewed bones and connective tissue. Slowly cooking the bones…

Could acid reflux explain sudden unexpected death in epilepsy?

Sudden unexpected deaths in epilepsy have stumped researchers for decades. According to a new study, seemingly harmless acid reflux might offer some clues. A new study investigates how the larynx (pictured) may be involved in SUDEP. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 3.4 million people in the United States…
