How to win her heart? Moderate amounts of quality chocolate

By Isagenix Nutritional Sciences

They say chocolate is the way to a woman’s heart, and they could be right – eating one or two servings of dark chocolate weekly is good for the hearts of middle-aged or elderly women.

A nine-year observational study followed 31,823 healthy Swedish women ages 48 to 82 and found that those who ate moderate amounts of high-quality chocolate had healthier hearts.

The women who gained the most heart-health benefits had eaten one or two servings of the dark chocolate weekly, followed by those who ate one to three servings monthly. Each serving of chocolate was typically between 19 and 30 grams.

On the other hand, the women who ate one or more servings per day received no benefit, which the researchers suggest was result of replacing other nutritious foods with the chocolate. So, enjoy dark chocolate, but in moderation and as part of a nutritious diet.

Men, take note – the quality of the chocolate matters.

Study – Low Muscle Mass Linked To Diabetes

By Isagenix Nutritional Sciences

Preserving muscle over time is key for reducing risk of diabetes.
Losing weight alone may not be enough to reduce risk of type 2 diabetes in people with low muscle mass and strength, especially if over age 60.

These are the findings of new research from Dr. Preethi Srikanthan of University of California, Los Angeles, and colleagues who performed a cross-sectional analysis of 14,528 people from National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III.
Dr. Srikanthan and colleagues concluded that age-related muscle loss, or sarcopenia, was associated with insulin resistance and that sarcopenia, independent of obesity, may be an early predictor of diabetes.

The association of sarcopenia and insulin resistance was strongest in those who were 60 years and older, the researchers warn.

Apart from these poor health outcomes, sarcopenia in older adults is also clearly associated with other health outcomes such as increased risk of falls, hip fractures, bone loss (osteopenia) and physical disability.

Discover 9 superfoods that will help you lose weight

Trying to lose weight? Lean about 9 superfoods that will help shed unwanted pounds and improve overall health.

By Dr. Joey Shulman DC, registered nutritionist

Did you know that adding superfoods to your daily diet can help you lose weight as well as improve your overall health? What are superfoods, you might ask? They are specific foods loaded with minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients (plant chemicals that fight disease), fibre and antioxidants.

Here are the top must-have superfoods.

1. Avocados
Although avocados are high in fat, the majority of fat is heart-healthy oleic acid or monounsaturated fat. These tasty fruits are also sodium and cholesterol free and have proved to be beneficial for high cholesterol levels. Avocados are great sliced on top of salads or spread on a sandwich - a great substitute for mayo. Avocados ripen in about five to seven days at room temperature. If you need to ripen an avocado, place it in a paper bag where the fruit's production of ethylene will speed up the ripening process.

Why CoQ10 is a Critical Factor in Aging

By Isagenix Nutritional Sciences

Growing old is not so much about chronological age but a consequence of the biochemical processes that happen inside our bodies, the lifestyle choices we make, and how well we can protect our bodies from the toxic elements around us.

Scientists are only now beginning to understand this aging process. Aging is mainly influenced by forces within our bodies including a process called “cellular aging.” Cellular aging is the gradual course over time that leads progressively to the loss of our physiological reserves and functions.

Scientists also developed the free radical theory of aging, which is a theory that the origins of cellular aging are in part the result of the damaging effects of oxidative stress.

Oxidative stress—an imbalance of antioxidant defenses and free radicals—is a product of our environment but also a product of our own metabolism, which brings us to the mitochondrion.
