Health Tip of the Week
False Fish Oil?
The National Institute of Health just published a new study where scientists examined 4,000 older adults over a 5-year period. Some of the participants received omega-3 (fish oil) and others took a placebo pill. By the end of the study, both groups of participants showed about the same level of cognitive decline. “Contrary to popular belief, we didn’t see any benefit of omega-3…for stopping cognitive decline,” said Emily Chew, lead researcher for the NIH study. However, numerous studies have shown the benefits of omega-3 for heart and vascular function.
Child Not Sleeping?
School is starting back for most children and that normally means earlier bedtimes. But what if your child is having a hard time going to sleep? It is possible that your child could be deficient in a necessary mineral, magnesium. Magnesium has been proven to help calm and ease nervous tension in adults and children. If you are already getting your child checked by your chiropractor and you know they are not subluxated, magnesium might be something to try. Magnesium is easily depleted by sweat, sugars, and stress and a little might be in order after a busy summer.
Saffron
Crocus sativus is part of the iris family and is the plant that gives us one of the most exotic spices, saffron. Saffron is not cheap because it must be harvested by hand and takes about one hundred and fifty flowers to give us one gram of saffron threads, the spice used in cooking. Even though it is incredibly rare, its health benefits are worth considering. Saffron contains more than 150 compounds that have medicinal properties like carotenoids (beta-carotene, lycopene, zeaxanthin, and more). It acts like an antioxidant, fights inflammation, modulates the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, protects nerve cells, benefits arterial health, and more. It has also been shown to help with depression and moisturize the skin. Sound too good to be true? Most studies have used a 30 mg dose of saffron to “treat” depression, protects against chemical and biologic toxins, positively influences appetite control, improves memory, can help with PMS, and soothe the skin. While using saffron poses little risk of side-effects, it can certainly add a new and exotic flavor to your food and can easily be added into your routine. Having a variety of spices in your diet can help tap into the positive health benefits of wonderful flavors found around the world.
