Beetroot-hawthorn berry blend may boost heart health
University of Texas, May 27, 2022
A blend of beetroot and Hawthorn berry may boost the activity of an enzyme linked to improved heart health, suggests a new study from Texas. Researchers from the University of Texas report that the herbal blend could improve the status of nitric oxide in the body – nitric oxide (NO) is a potent vasodilator, or compound that promotes the dilation or relaxation of blood vessels, thereby easing blood pressure and boosting heart health. “The strategy of formulating a combination of natural products and botanicals chosen specifically for their NO activity shows promise in restoring NO [control] in human subjects at risk for cardiovascular disease for use as a dietary supplement,” wrote researchers in Nutrition Research. Dr Bryan explained what makes the combination unique is beet root and hawthorn play a unique and critical role.” Beetroot was chosen because it was found to contain high levels of nitrate, while hawthorn berries have a high activity of the enzyme nitrite reductase, which converts nitrite to nitric oxide.
Vitamin D needed for male fertility
Copenhagen University Hospital
The journal Human Reproduction reported the finding of Danish researchers of a role for vitamin D in sperm motility: the movement of spermatozoa that is necessary for fertilization. Martin Blomberg Jensen of Copenhagen University Hospital and his associates evaluated motility in sperm samples from 300 Danish men. Blood samples were analyzed for 25-hydroxyvitamin D, parathyroid hormone and other factors. Forty-four percent of the subjects were found to have insufficient vitamin D levels, which were inversely correlated with parathyroid hormone. Increasing vitamin D levels were associated with greater sperm motility as well increased progressive motility, which is the highest grade of sperm motility, applied to sperm that swim rapidly in a straight line. In an in vitro experiment utilizing sperm samples donated by 40 men, vitamin D3 was demonstrated to increase intracellular calcium via vitamin D receptor-mediated calcium release, improve sperm motility, and induce the acrosome reaction, which is needed for fertilization of the ovum. “Our study uncovers some of the functions of vitamin D and generates new hypotheses. This is an intriguing finding, because it suggests that vitamin D has an effect on sperm movement and function.”
Aromatherapy can reduce post-surgical opioid use by half, preliminary US study finds
University of Pittsburgh
Aromatherapy reduces post-surgical opioid use by half in hip replacement patients anxious before their operation, according to a new preliminary study being presented at the annual meeting of the European Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care (ESAIC) in Milan. Previous research has shown that anxiety, depression and catastrophising (patients who believe they are going to die during surgery) increase post-operative pain and opioid use by up to 50%. Aromatherapy, the use of essential oils to enhance wellbeing, has been used for thousands of years and a number of recent studies have found that lavender and peppermint aromatherapy, in particular, can reduce anxiety.1 Participants are randomised to an active treatment (aromatherapy) or placebo group. Those in the active treatment group are given a lavender and peppermint “aromatab”, an adhesive patch that slowly releases essential oils when stuck onto clothes, skin or a hospital gown, to wear from at least an hour before their operation. The patches are changed every 12 hours and are worn for 72 hours after surgery. Those in the placebo group wear a patch which emits sweet almond oil – an oil not credited with anxiety-lowering qualities. Total opioid use in the first 48 hours after surgery was 50% lower in the aromatherapy group (12 OME) than in the placebo group (24.75 OME). (OME, oral morphine equivalent, is a measure that allows comparison between different drugs and methods of administration).
Coffee consumption link to reduced risk of acute kidney injury, study finds
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
If you need another reason to start the day drinking a cup of joe, a recent study by Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers has revealed that consuming at least one cup of coffee a day may reduce the risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) when compared to those who do not drink coffee. The findings, published in the journal Kidney International Reports, show that those who drank any quantity of coffee every day had a 15% lower risk of AKI, with the largest reductions observed in the group that drank two to three cups a day (a 22%–23% lower risk).
