Collagen is useless for sore joints and wrinkles — unless you pair it with this
Did you know that just taking collagen isn’t enough for younger-looking, healthier, skin and pain-free, younger-feeling joints?
The body actually needs one very specific ingredient to absorb the collagen.
It’s like how the body will struggle to absorb turmeric unless it’s paired with black pepper…
5 foods that can prevent or reverse heart attacks
A heart attack occurs when blood flow is restricted to the heart.
Heart attacks are usually caused by coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis.
There are many factors leading to complications that can cause a heart attack.
Recently, researchers compared the levels of three key minerals in the blood of people with and without a diagnosis of heart attack.
The researchers were surprised to discover that heart attack patients have very low levels of zinc and magnesium.
The human research was carried out at Geetanjali Medical College and Hospital, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. The results were published in the International Journal of Scientific Research.
Billions have been spent on heart attack research over the last few decades, and yet heart attacks remain one of the most common causes of death.
“Heart attack is one of the most dangerous manifestations of coronary artery disease and is one of the commonest causes of mortality.”
A number of studies have indicated that people suffering from heart attacks may have unbalanced levels of some nutrients in their blood.
Some of these nutrients may be implicated in causing heart attacks.
“It is well established that several trace elements are of great importance in a number of biological processes.”
Zinc, magnesium, and calcium are three such minerals.
This study was designed to gather data on the levels of these minerals in patients suffering from heart attacks compared to a healthy population.
“Large number of workers have reported different parameters such as serum level of calcium, magnesium and zinc but still the relationship of these metals have not been established.”
The study recruited 100 participants. Half of the participants were diagnosed with heart attacks.
“Group A was 50 patients diagnosed with a heart attack based on ECG findings and other clinical examinations.”
The other half were healthy and used for comparison.
The participants ranged from 30 to 70 years old.
The researchers excluded people who had health conditions which could cause changes to the levels of the minerals in question.
People were also excluded if they were taking treatments which were known to affect the levels of these trace minerals.
All of the participants submitted to a blood sample which was analysed for zinc, magnesium, and calcium levels.
“5 ml blood samples were collected in plain test tubes for estimation of zinc, calcium and magnesium.”
Heart-attack patients had significantly lower levels of zinc and magnesium.
“In the present study we found low levels of zinc and magnesium in heart attack patients.”
Zinc levels were 30% lower in heart attack patients.
Low levels of zinc in the blood are tied to high blood pressure, high estrogen, and low testosterone — which in turn are linked to increased risk of heart attack.
Patients who experience heart attacks tend to accumulate zinc in the liver — causing a relatively lower level of zinc in the body.
“Our attack is a stressful condition which increases the uptake of zinc by the liver and decreases the levels of zinc in the blood.”
Magnesium levels were almost 25% lower in people diagnosed with heart attack.
Magnesium has potent benefits throughout the body — but particularly in the heart.
Optimal magnesium levels lower the risk of heart disease, heart failure, atherosclerosis and high blood pressure.
Magnesium is also critical for the health of heart cells and controlling the proper rhythm of the heart.
Magnesium supplementation is used to control irregular heart rhythms which are often seen in heart-attack patients (known as cardiac arrhythmias).
“Administration of magnesium stabilizes these channels and prevents arrhythmias.”
This study shows that on average, people with heart attack have lower levels of zinc and magnesium.
Optimizing zinc and magnesium levels could improve outcomes for people with heart attack.
The study also found higher levels of calcium in the blood of heart attack patients.
Calcium is a little bit more complicated. Low levels of dietary calcium increase parathyroid hormone.
And parathyroid hormone causes calcium to be released from the bones in the blood.
So, high blood calcium could be caused by low dietary calcium.
I know it sounds confusing…but the result is that most men are VERY low in dietary calcium and this causes them no end of heart problems and narrowed, clogged and hardened arteries…
Vitamin D is essential — it assists calcium utilization and also lowers parathyroid hormone which is good — because it lowers blood levels of calcium and that is very healthy indeed.
In recent years we have discovered that the functioning of vitamin D depends on optimal magnesium levels.
So optimising magnesium levels may normalise calcium.
“From the present study it can be concluded that heart-attack results in low levels of zinc and magnesium, and high levels of calcium.”
