It’s obvious that the quality of food we choose on a daily basis influences our health. Yet most of us have absolutely no idea what or how much we are actually eating.

Pomegranate compound ‘could combat’ complications of ageing

“Pomegranates slow down the ageing process by prompting cells to recycle and rebuild themselves, a study shows,” The Daily Telegraph reports. But before you rush to stock up on the “food of the gods”, the study in question only involved worms and rodents. Compounds called urolithins are produced by bacteria in the gut when breaking down food such as pomegranates, nuts and berries. The researchers found that one of them in particular, urolithin A, increased the lifespan of roundworms by a half. They also improved muscle function in rodents (specifically,…

Poor Maternal Nutrition Can Cause Early Ageing of Baby’s Heart

Children born to mothers who were undernourished during pregnancy are more likely to suffer early ageing of the heart, a research has showed. The animal study found that moderately reducing a mother’s food intake can make it more likely that the baby’s organs will show increased disease susceptibility and early ageing. These changes in the heart could contribute to decreased quality of life, decreased exercise capability, and increased vulnerability to other diseases such as diabetes and hypertension — major risk factor for heart disease and stroke, the study said. Understanding…

Natural Compound Can Reduce Signs of Ageing: Study

Supplements of a natural compound can compensate the human body for the loss of energy production, and reduce the typical signs of ageing, a study has found. With age, the body structure loses its capacity to make a key element of energy production called NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide). This results in gradual weight gain, loss of insulin sensitivity and decline in physical activity. A team of researchers at Washington University – St. Louis, has found a natural compound called NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide)with potential anti-ageing remedies. NMN naturally occurs in a…
