Combat high blood pressure and cholesterol with soybeans

Written by Nicholas Webb

You may have heard ofrepparttar “Portfolio Diet” wherein it has been clinically accepted that increasingrepparttar 149023 intake of soy based foods can reduce levels of LDL cholesterol as much as some statin drugs.

Well, now it seems that soybeans have another health-giving quality: they also reduce blood pressure.

This latest finding is making quite a bit of noise in medical circles and not without reason. Can you imagine how hardrepparttar 149024 two largest drug markets (cholesterol and blood pressure) would be hit ifrepparttar 149025 American Heart Association orrepparttar 149026 American College of Cardiology released a statement saying that soybeans can reduce bad cholesterol and control blood pressure? Just think about it. But that’s where it will stop; in your thoughts. With allrepparttar 149027 lobbying power ofrepparttar 149028 giant pharmaceutical industry, I seriously doubt that such a statement from an internationally recognized source will ever be released.

However, to date more than 40 clinical trials have clearly shown that soya protein can reduce cholesterol in men and women. The effective dose of soy protein per day appears to range between 25 and 50 grams. Now initial studies show that it is also useful in fighting high blood pressure.

Soybean protein lowers blood pressure

In a report fromrepparttar 149029 Annals of Internal Medicine (July 2005), it seems that use of soybean protein dietary supplements may help reduce high blood pressure.

Soybean products have been commonplace in Asian diets for centuries, and soybeans, as well as its derivative products have long been available in our local health stores and supermarkets. Research has shown that food items like tofu and soymilk can reduce cholesterol levels and lower risks for cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis. If we addrepparttar 149030 ability to fight high blood pressure torepparttar 149031 list of illness and diseases that soy foods are able to combat, then we might just have a super disease killer on our hands.

Cetyl Myristoleate separating fact from fiction

Written by Rusty Ford

I am a strong believer in Cetyl Myristoleate forrepparttar treatment of arthritis. Forrepparttar 149001 last three years I have been researching and writing about Cetyl Myristoleate. I am constantly searching for new research and contact and interview every doctor I can find that works with it. The purpose ofrepparttar 149002 article is to evaluaterepparttar 149003 claims made about Cetyl Myristoleate onrepparttar 149004 myriad of web sites that sell it. It you want more information onrepparttar 149005 research that documentsrepparttar 149006 effectiveness of Cetyl Myristoleate then do a search for my article, “Cetyl Myristoleate: Science or Speculation”.

Cetyl Myristoleate is an Immune Modulator. This is a tough question. We do not have any medical research yet that documents that it is an immune modulator. Many doctors believe that it is based on observations of their patients. Some people respond so well it appears thatrepparttar 149007 benefits go beyond joint lubrication and a decreases in inflammation. Base on these results some doctors theorize that it is helping to correct some peoples immune systems. While this sounds wonderful it is a bold statement to make. I am not ready to call it an immune modulator.

Cetyl Myristoleate is a cure for arthritis. This is not only a bogus claim it is a lie. Not only is it a lie it is illegal to make that claim. If you are at a web site that makes this claim, leave, this person is notrepparttar 149008 kind of person you want to do business with. They need to be reported torepparttar 149009 Federal Trade Commission.

All you need is one 15 or 20 day protocol. There are several companies that make this type of claim. You will notice thatrepparttar 149010 companies that make this claim are amongrepparttar 149011 most expensive. I believe that they use this to justify their high prices. Who would pay this price on a regular bases. Whilerepparttar 149012 double blind studies show that many people start finding relief in this amount of time, they were all short term studies and did not evaluate how longrepparttar 149013 results lasted. Every doctor I have talked to has disagreed with this statement. The people who find relief from Cetyl Myristoleate usually start seeing good results byrepparttar 149014 two week mark. But they continue to improve forrepparttar 149015 next two to four weeks. Almost everyone who discontinues use finds that with in a couple of weeks their symptoms begin to return. But they also find that once they max out their benefit they need much less to maintain that level of relief.
