This Supplement Quadruples Weight Loss

The supplement is found naturally in many healthy foods.

Some dietary supplements have been shown to improve weight loss by scientific research.

Indeed, one study has shown that inulin can help to quadruple weight loss.

People in the study lost 2.3 percent of their body weight after taking the supplement, compared with just 0.6 percent in the control group.

Inulin is a fibre found naturally in many foods, including leeks, wheat, onions, bananas and asparagus.

The natural fibre — which is also available as a supplement — works by reducing appetite.

It has a creamy consistency and is sometimes used in the food industry as a substitute for fat.

Inulin is low in calories, high in fibre and it can improve the health of the digestion.

Researcher repeatedly finds that an increases in fibre intake can help with weight loss.

The study included 44 overweight people with prediabetes who were tracked for 18 weeks.

Half were given 30g per day of inulin, while the other group were given a placebo.

Both saw the same level of weight loss over the first nine weeks.

But after that, the group taking inulin achieved a weight loss of 2.3 percent of their body weight in comparison to only 0.6 percent in the control group.

The study’s authors write:

“…the consumption of inulin enhances a traditional calorie-restricted lifestyle program.

An added benefit of the inulin supplement was a greater reduction in intrahepatocellular and intramyocellular lipid in the soleus muscle even after accounting for weight lost.”

Inulin seems to work by reducing appetite, the study’s authors write:

“…subjects taking inulin ate significantly less (~270 kcal less, p = 0.027) at the follow-up ad libitum meal, with no consequent rebound in food intake at the 18 week visit despite a total 7 % weight loss in the inulin group, suggesting that inulin’s effect on weight management is mediated via appetite modulation.”

The study was published in the journal Nutrition & Metabolism (Guess et al., 2015).

Pill Taken By 25% For Heart Disease Causes Brain Bleeds

Taking this pill every day to prevent a heart attack or stroke can cause brain and stomach bleeding.

Daily aspirin even in small doses for the prevention of a heart attack or stroke should be avoided as the potential harms are fatal, a study reveals.

About one-in-four American adults age 40 or older take aspirin every day even though they have no history of stroke or heart disease.

Currently, aspirin plays a first aid role to prevent heart attack or stroke and is often recommended to patients between 50 to 69 years old who are at higher risk of cardiovascular disease.

Consequently, this study examined the benefits and harms of aspirin used for primary prevention of cardiovascular events.

Dr Mark Ebell, the study’s author, said:

“We shouldn’t just assume that everyone will benefit from low-dose aspirin, and in fact the data show that the potential benefits are similar to the potential harms for most people who have not had a cardiovascular event and are taking it to try to prevent a first heart attack or stroke.”

It was about 30 years ago that aspirin was first found to lower the risk of heart attacks.

Studies thereafter have found evidence that aspirin can lessen colon cancer and stroke risks as well as heart attacks.

However, taking aspirin is too risky and has serious side-effects such as bleeding in the brain and stomach.

Dr Ebell said:

“If you look back in the 1970s and ’80s when a lot of these original studies were done, patients were not taking statin drugs to control cholesterol, their blood pressure was not as well controlled, and they weren’t getting screenings for colorectal cancer.”

Dr Ebell and his colleague looked into patient’s data from aspirin studies between 1978 to 2005.

The data was alarming as for 1,000 patients on aspirin treatment, there were less cardiovascular incidents but more haemorrhages.

Dr Ebell said:

“About 1 in 300 persons who took aspirin for five years experienced a brain bleed.

That’s pretty serious harm.

This type of bleeding can be fatal.

It can be disabling, certainly.

One in 300 is not something that the typical doctor is going to be able to pick up on in their practice.

That’s why we need these big studies to understand small but important increases in risk.”

The study was published in the journal of Family Practice (Moriarty & Ebell, 2019).

Dementia: The Optimal Sleep Time That Reduces Risk

Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, making up 70 percent of cases.

People who sleep for too little or too long are at a higher risk of cognitive decline and dementia.

However, those who sleep for between 5.5 and 7.5 hours per night do not see declines in their cognitive health, even when suffering the early effects of Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, making up 70 percent of cases.

Poor sleep is a common symptom of Alzheimer’s and can accelerate the progression of the disease.

Dr Brendan Lucey, the study’s first author, said:

“It’s been challenging to determine how sleep and different stages of Alzheimer’s disease are related, but that’s what you need to know to start designing interventions.

Our study suggests that there is a middle range, or ‘sweet spot,’ for total sleep time where cognitive performance was stable over time.

Short and long sleep times were associated with worse cognitive performance, perhaps due to insufficient sleep or poor sleep quality.

An unanswered question is if we can intervene to improve sleep, such as increasing sleep time for short sleepers by an hour or so, would that have a positive effect on their cognitive performance so they no longer decline?

We need more longitudinal data to answer this question.”

The study included 100 people, average age 75, most with no cognitive impairments.

Their cognitive function was tracked over almost 5 years, along with their sleep quality.

Professor David Holtzman, study co-author, explained the results:

“It was particularly interesting to see that not only those with short amounts of sleep but also those with long amounts of sleep had more cognitive decline.

It suggests that sleep quality may be key, as opposed to simply total sleep.”

People suffering sleep problems should be aware that they can be treated, said Professor Beau M. Ances, study co-author:

“I ask many of my patients, ‘How’s your sleep?’

Often patients report that they’re not sleeping well.

Often once their sleep issues are treated, they may have improvements in cognition.

Physicians who are seeing patients with cognitive complaints should ask them about their quality of sleep.

This is potentially a modifiable factor.”

The study was published in the journal Brain (Lucey et al., 2021).
