How what you eat can impact your brain health

New Delhi, 27 Jan (ANI): A new study describes that what we eat are responsible for our gut bacteria which has a significant impact on behavior and brain health. The study presents the most up-to-date understanding of the relationship between the proteins produced by intestinal bacteria and the human central nervous system and explores the various mechanisms through which the microbiome can influence the brain: by stimulating and over-stimulating the immune system, releasing hormones identical to those made by the human body, or through stimulation that sends signals to the brain. The new study describes many ways gut bacteria could impact normal brain activity and development, affect sleep and stress responses, play a role in a variety of diseases, and be modified through diet for therapeutic use.

Is eating an orange really better than orange juice?

New Delhi, Jan 24 (ANI): While it is believed that eating an orange is better than having orange juice, scientists have explained in a new study that it may not be that clear. Although juice is indeed high in sugar, the scientists found that certain nutrients in orange juice might be easier for the body to absorb than when a person consumes them from unprocessed fruit.The researchers found that the production of pasteurized orange juice slightly lowered the levels of carotenoids and vitamin C.Oranges are packed with nutrients such as carotenoids and flavonoids that, among other benefits, can potentially help lower a person's risk for certain cancers and cardiovascular disease. But many people prefer to drink a glass of orange juice rather than eat the fruit. Jan 24, 2015
