Can Stem Cells Really Fight Aging?

We all want to fight the battle against aging but lathering ourselves in lotions and potions isn’t enough to combat the inevitable. What if we could fight the aging process from the inside out without creams or surgery?!

As we age, we lose elasticity in our skin, making wrinkles more visible as time goes by. The fresh, youthful look starts to fade and as much as we want it to slow down or stop, most people give up and think there is nothing that can be done… until now!

Did you know that Stem Cells have a powerful effect on aging? These cells have the ability to duplicate and repair the collagen in our skin – helping to reduce wrinkles and skin elasticity over time.

We’ve developed a patch which has the ability to elevate a peptide known to activate stem cells. The aging process may have met it’s match!

Study into intermittent fasting suggests weight loss benefits

One of the first studies into the effects of a 16:8 fasting diet on obese subjects has found it is effective in helping lose weight.

Published in the Journal of Nutrition and Healthy Aging, new research from the University of Illinois at Chicago has examined a form of time-restricted eating known as the 16:8 diet and the small study has found it could indeed be an effective form of weight loss. This 16:8 method is essentially what we use in our WinFit Body Shaping System.

The subjects in the study were not given controlled diets but rather told to continue eating as normal but to limit their food intake to between the hours of 10 am and 6 pm. After 12 weeks the results interestingly showed that the 16:8 group seemed to instinctively have reduced their overall daily caloric intake by about 300 calories. Their overall body weight had also dropped by around three percent, compared to the historical control group.

More research is needed, but the preliminary evidence is certainly promising.

We have always promoted our WinFit Body Shaping system as a healthy way to reduce body fat, increase muscle tone and enhance overall wellness.   Now here is more scientific evidence as to why intermittent fasting is good for everyone.

Is Sleep Better Than A Pay Rise?

A survey carried out by the Oxford Economics and National Centre for Social Research has found that gaining enough sleep is the key for living well. The study showed that income has little effect on how well people felt, with a mere 50% pay rise elevating the wellbeing rate by just half a percent!

For the average individual, an improvement in sleep is equivalent to a pay rise up to four times. The researchers asked over 8000 people about different areas of their lives including how situations affected them and how they behaved as a result. This is a continuous study and subjects will be interviewed every 6 months, enabling the researchers to track the effects of different lifestyles.

Silent Nights is a proven method for increasing both the length by 66% and enhancing quality of sleep.

 

The Real Relationship Between Bacteria and Inflammation

It is looking possible that brain inflammation could be altered by bacteria in our microbiome – this is according to new research carried out at the University of Colorado Boulder. This suggests that one particular bacteria could have an anti-inflammatory effect on the brain. The study was carried out on rodents and it was found that the bacterium – mycobacterium vaccae – actually shifts the brain towards a state of anti-inflammation. Although much work is still required in order to develop this further, it’s sure to make you excited for the future of science! In the meantime, both Glutathione and Aeon are proven ways to manage inflammation and protect the body from the accumulation of inflammatory chemicals.

Stress reduction for a better quality of life

A massive study spanning 30 years of data and examining a cohort of over one million people has found a strong association between persons suffering from stress disorders, including PTSD, and an increased risk of developing autoimmune diseases such as arthritis and Crohn’s disease.

 

The striking results found that those suffering from a diagnosed stress-related disorder were 30 to 40 percent more likely to subsequently be diagnosed with one of 41 different autoimmune diseases. These autoimmune diseases included rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease and celiac disease.
