Wake Up to Wellness: Issue #3

What’s new in the world of health and wellness this week?

We’ve got you covered:

  • One more reason to drink more water.
  • How a healthy BMI can lead to a longer life.
  • A new blood test for menopause.
  • How AI is helping detect Alzheimer’s.
  • How 23andMe is helping customers determine what drugs are safe for them.

A New Benefit of Drinking Water

We all know water is good for you. This Penn State study gives us yet another reason to drink up.

A new study that surveyed over 20,000 people about the connection between sleep and hydration found that those who only slept six hours were more likely to be “inadequately hydrated” with more concentrated urine than those that slept at least eight hours.

Why? The underlying reason has to do with hormones. The hormone vasopressin regulates your hydration levels. And, it’s released at night while you are sleeping and during the day so the number of hours you sleep affects the amount of vasopressin your body releases.

The author of the study, Asher Rosinger, an assistant professor of biobehavioral health at Penn State, said, “Vasopressin is released both more quickly and later on in the sleep cycle.” He added, “So, if you’re waking up earlier, you might miss that window in which more of the hormone is released, causing a disruption in the body’s hydration.” Read the whole story here.

Your BMI Can Affect Your Lifespan

Two new studies give us another reason to reach and maintain a healthy weight. You can live a longer life. And who doesn’t want that?

The first study, published in “Obesity”, employs a method called Mendelian randomization, which uses genetic markers and crunches numbers similar to a clinical trial. The researchers examined the genomes and health status of over 500,000 participants in the U.K. They found that the “results support a causal role of higher BMI in increasing the risk of all-cause mortality and mortality from several specific causes.”

More specifically, they found that a five-point BMI increase is related to a 16 percent jump in mortality and a 61 percent increase in cardiovascular disease mortality.

The second study was released in “The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology,” and studied over 3.6 million participants in the U.K.

Researchers examined overall mortality and specific-cause mortality, and found the death rates were higher in both overweight and underweight adults. These studies contradict earlier research known as the “obesity paradox” that claims obesity may protect people with heart disease and allow them to live longer lives.

The short story? Live an active lifestyle and eat a healthy diet to increase your chances of living a long, healthy life. Read more here.

A Blood Test for Menopause?

Just last month, the FDA approved a blood test that can help determine if a woman has entered menopause, or when she will. It’s called the PicoAMH Elisa test.

The test measured something called the anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), which measures ovarian function. The test was assessed with data from 690 women between the ages of 42 and 62. The results showed that it performed “reasonably well” at identifying AMH levels. It could tell when a woman had her last menstrual period, and if they were more than five years away from menopause.

Courtney Lias, PhD, director of the Division of Chemistry and Toxicology Devices in the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health said, “Diagnostic results about a woman’s menopausal status may prompt discussions about preventative care for women experiencing menopausal symptoms.”

She noted that the test aids doctors by giving them more information so they can talk with their patients about prevention and treatment.

For instance, if a doctor knows when a woman is likely to start menopause, they can educate the patient about bone mineral density loss and the increased risk of cardiovascular disease, both of which are associated with menopause.

The FDA mentioned that doctors should consider the results of this test along with a full clinical workup to make sure contraceptives are not discontinued in women who have not yet reached menopause, and that uterine bleeding due to endometrial cancer is not dismissed as a diagnosis.

This test is beneficial for women with symptoms of perimenopause, which is associated with negative health impacts. Perimenopause happens when your ovaries begin producing less estrogen before you enter menopause. Early menopause is linked to an increased risk of osteoporosis and fracture, heart disease, cognitive changes, vaginal changes, mood changes, and disruption in libido. Read the full story here.

Can Artificial Intelligence Predict Alzheimer’s Disease?

Artificial intelligence is more than a nifty Google Home or Amazon Alexa device. It’s helping predict Alzheimer’s disease with brain scans several years before an official diagnosis.

While a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is extremely unfortunate and there is no way to prevent it, the team suggests this tool could significantly assist in the early detection, so doctors can prescribe treatments that slow disease progression.

University of California researchers used positron-emission tomography (PET) images of 1,002 participants’ brains to train the deep learning algorithm. Ninety percent of the images were then used to teach the algorithm how to detect Alzheimer’s disease features. The other 10 percent were used to qualify performance.

Next, the researchers tested the algorithm on PET images of the brains of another 40 people. Amazingly, the algorithm correctly predicted which people would eventually be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Typically, the diagnosis came more than six years after the scans.

Co-author Dr. Jae Ho Sohn said, “We were very pleased with the algorithm’s performance. It was able to predict every single case that advanced to Alzheimer’s disease.”

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, about 5.7 million people live with Alzheimer’s disease in the United States and it’s on the rise — it’s predicted to go up by 14 million by 2050. Early diagnosis not only helps the patient, it’s also estimated that it could save about $7.9 trillion in medical care and treatment costs in the long-term. Read the full story here.

23andMe to Predict How You Will Respond to Certain Drugs

23andMe is a genetics company that offers a $199 Health and Ancestry service to help people understand their genetic background. Just last week, they became the first company to receive FDA approval for a report that gives consumers information about how their genetics can affect the effectiveness of certain drugs.

Each individual’s genetic makeup can affect the effects of any particular drug, particularly blood thinners and antidepressants. 23andMe analyzes 33 genetic variants in a saliva sample that affect how you may metabolize some drugs.

Kathy Hibbs, chief legal and regulatory officer at 23andMe, commented, “Historically, there hasn’t necessarily been a convenient way to access that information. We want to make this proactively available to individuals so it will ultimately become convenient when, and if, they ever do need any of these medications.”

Miso Health Benefits: Why the Paleo Community Embraces Miso

Soy is among the most controversial foods, but miso paste is made from fermented soy and is touted as a superfood. In the palo community, legumes (and grains) are excluded from the diet, but most paleo experts and enthusiasts agree that miso, along with other products made from fermented soybeans, are OK to eat in moderation.

So how do we explain the disparity? Why are soy products so controversial, and do the health benefits of miso outweigh the potential concerns? Let’s dive in.

What Is Miso Paste?

Miso (translated from Japanese as “fermented beans”) is the product of fermented soybeans, water, fermented grains (called koji), and salt. Koji, the final product of fermented rice, barley, or soy, requires the use of a fungus called Aspergillus oryzae, which activates the fermentation process (1). Chinese and Japanese cooking often require a number fermented soy products, including soy sauce, tempeh, natto (a slimy fermented bean side dish), and, of course, miso. All are fermented with koji. Chances are, if you’ve ever eaten Asian food, you’ve consumed koji.

There are a number of different types of miso, each with its own attributes that contribute different elements to Asian dishes, especially Japanese cuisine. They all have roughly similar health benefits, which we’ll go over in a separate section, and they all impart a savory (or umami) flavor to the final dish.

Fermentation time and ingredients (type of grain fermented) are the main factors in distinguishing the various types of miso. All miso contains fermented soybeans, but the ratio of soy to grain, type of grain, and fermentation time vary from type to type.

  • Kome miso (also known as white miso) is made with rice and has the shortest fermentation time (two to six months). It offers the mildest flavor and works great for salad dressings, mayos, and even some desserts!
  • Mugi miso (also known as red or brown miso) is made with barley. It’s fermented for the longest period of time (three to 12 months) and has a rich, very salty flavor.
  • Awase miso (also known as yellow miso) is a mixed miso, made with a combination of barley and rice kogi and has a bit saltier of a flavor than kome.
  • Hatcho or mame miso (also known as black miso) is made exclusively from soy koji and contains no grain at all and ferments for as long or longer than barley miso. For this reason, it’s the strongest in flavor and has a higher protein and lower carbohydrate content (1, 2, 3, 4).

As a general rule, dark miso has a longer fermentation time than light miso, is saltier, and offers more umami flavor to a dish. All types of miso pastes are great at adding flavor to soups, sauces, and marinades.

Soybeans on a Paleo Diet?

As we mentioned earlier, legumes and grains are generally not allowed on the paleo diet, but a quick Google search will reveal that miso and other fermented soy products are permitted. Why is this? To best understand the reasoning behind this strange exception, it’s important to quickly go over why legumes are discouraged in the first place.

Beans and grains are both discouraged on the paleo diet, due in large part to their antinutrient content. Phytic acid (or phytate) is considered an antinutrient because it inhibits the absorption of the nutrients found within the food product.

Other antinutrients found in beans and grains are protease inhibitors, saponins, and lectins, all of which either inhibit proper nutrient absorption, catalyze cell death, or mess with your blood sugar (5). Not ideal!

These compounds evolved to increase the viability of beans and grains in nature, ensuring that they don’t sprout prematurely or in the wrong conditions, but in the context of nutrition, they aren’t doing us any favors (6).

Soy also contains isoflavones, which mimic estrogen in the body. This is a hot topic of debate, as some research shows that these compounds cause breast cancer in lab animals, while other research show protective effects for breast cancer survivors (7, 8).

These findings are exactly contradictory. The science is confusing, but a recent, large-scale study of 6,200 breast cancer survivors showed that over a 10-year period, women who consumed the most soy had the lowest recurrence rates and lowest mortality rates (8). This recent study claims to put to rest the concern over isoflavones, but even if you accept those findings, the antinutrient concerns still remain.

Unlocking the Nutrition

The key to being able to eat these foods in moderation and reap the benefits of their nutrient content is fermentation. The fermentation process not only breaks down the vast majority (if not all) of the antinutrients found in legumes and grains, it also unlocks and multiplies the nutrient content. For example, vitamin K, B vitamins, and a number of minerals are not only more bioavailable in fermented foods, but also more plentiful. For this reason, the fermentation process transforms the simple soybean into a powerhouse of bioavailable nutrients (9).

Health Benefits of Miso

We mentioned that salt is a key ingredient in the miso-making process. It helps regulate the fermentation process and prevents the mold (Aspergillus oryzae) from growing too quickly, so it’s a critical ingredient. For this reason, miso has a very high salt content, which might raise an eyebrow for healthcare providers. Interestingly, the high salt content of miso has actually been shown to be protective against high blood pressure rather than a risk, as table salt is claimed to be (10).

There is also some evidence that soy products lower LDL cholesterol levels, providing a protective benefit against heart disease, but there are also some contradictory studies on this topic (7).

We know that fermented foods support a healthy digestive system, contributing beneficial bacteria to the digestive tract, supporting healthy blood sugar levels, and aiding in the digestion of dietary fiber. As a fermented food, miso is a good source of beneficial bacteria, as long as you don’t boil it. Supporting your gut health with a variety of fermented foods is a critical part of the paleo diet, which adds to the list of reasons miso is an exception for paleo dietary guidelines.

Soy is also one of the few vegetarian sources of complete proteins. Soybeans contain all of the essential amino acids and offer a simple protein source for non-meat eaters or for days when you want to take a break from meat – just make sure you keep your portion small and that you’re consuming only fermented soy, like miso, tempeh, or natto. (Tofu is not fermented.)

Caveat: Know Your Source

Soy is a major large-scale American cash crop, accounting for a massive portion of our farmland. The vast majority of soy in this country is grown using GMO beans and industrial chemicals. These chemicals, especially glyphosate, have been shown to wreak havoc on the gut biome and cause harm to human health (10).

While most soy grown this way is processed into soybean oil and vegetable protein, it’s important to pay attention to the sourcing if you do decide to add miso into your paleo diet. Choose organic, non-GMO miso.

Should You Include Miso in Your Paleo Diet?

Now that you have the good, the bad, and the ugly on soybean paste, it’s up to you to decide. Will you add miso into your paleo diet? A simple miso soup with your sashimi meal? Will you use it to marinate meat or fish?

Eating miso is a personal choice, but knowing all the facts helps make that choice a bit easier. As long as you’re sourcing your miso from non-GMO, ideally organic soybeans, you’re eating it in moderation, and you’re not cooking it at high temperatures, it seems to be a safe and delicious addition to a paleo diet, and the leaders in that community seem to think so too. Add miso to soup, stir-fry (at the end), and even desserts to enhance the umami flavor and even offer some pretty exciting health benefits.

Why Everyone Should Get More Gelatin in Their Diet

When you picture gelatin, you probably envision a bright and colorful, yet translucent dessert, topped with whipped cream and berries. And the gelatin dessert you’re picturing probably wiggles when placed on a giant platter onto the dining room table.

You are picturing the commercial version, found in many gelatin products like Jell-O, pudding, gummy bears, gummy candies, and even ice cream. As a food additive, store-bought gelatin is a tasteless, colorless, gluten-free, powdered ingredient which acts like a gelling agent in foods.

But where does gelatin, in its most natural state, come from? Why (and how) should you incorporate it into you diet?

What Is Gelatin?

Gelatin (also known as collagen hydrolysate or hydrolyzed collagen) is a protein found in ligaments, tendons, bones, and cartilage in both humans and animals. The chemical process of transforming collagen into gelatin is called hydrolyzation, where the molecular bonds between collagen strands and peptides are broken down. In the United States, gelatin is generally recognized as safe by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

If you’ve ever made bone broth at home, you probably made homemade gelatin without realizing it. When you simmer animal tissues and bones in liquid for an extended period of time (one to two days), collagen slowly releases from the bones and connective tissue. When the remaining broth is chilled, it turns into giant Jell-O jiggler in the fridge — or, gelatin!

Gelatin Is Made Up Almost Entirely of Protein

Athletes, new moms, those suffering from joint pain, and some healthcare professionals praise gelatin and collagen for its various health benefits. From healing leaky gut, fending off the common cold, and even preventing athletic injuries, gelatin seems to have a never-ending list of advantages.

But what makes gelatin so beneficial?

Gelatin is made up of 98–99 percent protein (1). It’s packed with amino acids — the building blocks of protein — which help build and repair muscles, promote longevity, and keep joints in solid working condition.

Gelatin and collagen have the same amino acid profile. Gelatin and collagen protein contain 19 amino acids total, over 50 percent of which come from glycine, proline and hydroxyproline, and glutamic acid. Here’s what’s so special each of those amino acids:

Proline and Hydroxyproline

Proline is a non-essential amino acid and an essential component of collagen. Commonly found in cartilage within the human body, proline helps repair muscles, tendons, and joints, and keeps them functioning properly. Proline also helps your body repair wounds. When you injure yourself, your body automatically increases its proline production to recover (2).

Proline and its derivative, hydroxyproline, are often credited for helping your skin look young and radiant. The body uses proline to increase skin’s elasticity and thickness, which can help prevent dryness and wrinkles (3).

Glycine

Another non-essential amino acid, glycine has been shown to prevent a wide number of diseases. Patients diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, and several inflammatory diseases have shown reduced side effects after supplementing with glycine (4).

Glycine has proven especially useful for treating various metabolic conditions, including obesity and diabetes. Glycine can help break down fat, thereby contributing to weight loss. It also helps regulate blood sugar by converting glucose to energy, improving the blood glucose levels in individuals with Type 2 diabetes (5).

Glutamic Acid

Glutamic acid is a non-essential amino acid found naturally in high-protein foods like meat, poultry, fish eggs, and dairy products (6). It’s been shown to benefit your brain, increasing your focus, memory, and even mood.

Glutamic acid is the most common neurotransmitter in the brain and spinal cord, helping simulate mental alertness and improved memory function. Individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are sometimes given supplements containing glutamic acid to increase their mental sharpness (7).

Health Benefits of Gelatin

Gelatin can benefit your health in a number of ways, from boosting your immune system (thereby preventing a number of diseases) to strengthening your bones, muscles, and tendons (and reducing your risk of injury).

Gelatin Helps Support Joint Function

If your knees creak in the morning or your hips pop when you stand up from your desk, you could be showing early signs of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. A common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease where your cartilage breaks down, causing stiffness and pain. Rheumatoid arthritis, on the other hand, is a chronic inflammatory disorder affecting your joints, usually in your hands and feet.

In clinical studies, supplementing with hydrolyzed gelatin reduced pain in patients with osteoarthritis in their knees and hips (7). Gelatin can also be a great preventative measure against arthritis, before too much pain or inflammation sets in. In a 24-week study done on athletes, supplementing with gelatin reduced joint pain, increased mobility, and decreased inflammation that could hinder athletic performance (8).

Gelatin Builds Glowing Skin and Nails

The best-kept secret for healthy skin and nails might lie outside the salon. Collagen, the main component of gelatin, has been shown to increase the moisture in your skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve skin elasticity (9). In a randomized trial, applying a skin cream with collagen reduced skin wrinkles in 75 percent of participants, who were women aged 40 to 62 years (10).

Gelatin might also help stop your nails from breaking. In one study, 25 participants took collagen peptides for 24 weeks. The clinical trial found that collagen promoted an increase of 12 percent nail growth rate and decreased the frequency of broken nails by almost half. In total, 80 percent of participants agreed that collagen helped improve the appearance of their nails (11).

Provides Mental Clarity

As mentioned earlier, gelatin contains glutamic acid, which can very beneficial to your brain and memory function. Beyond simply improving your memory and mental clarity, gelatin could help treat many serious diseases impacting your brain.

Here’s something to note about degenerative diseases and how they impact the brain: For the most part, your central nervous system has limited capacity to regenerate. Meaning, if it becomes damaged, there is little room to reverse that. That being said, gelatin might help reduce the negative effects of neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. It could also help you recover from a stroke or brain injury (12).

It May Help You Shed a Few Pounds

Gelatin might help reduce your appetite, thereby helping you lose weight. In one study, obese patients who were given 20 grams of gelatin noticed improved meal satiety after they ate. This study showed that the negative impacts of a calorie-deficit diet (like hunger and cravings) could be reduced with gelatin supplements (13).

How to Make Gelatin at Home

You can buy gelatin at the store or on Amazon, or prepare your own at home. If you purchase store-bought gelatin, be sure to buy a grass-fed brand, like Great Lakes gelatin.

Making gelatin at home is not so different than making your own bone broth. Here’s how you do it:

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds leftover animal bones
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 8–10 cups filtered water or enough to cover ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Rinse the bones, pat dry with a paper towel, then line on a baking sheet.
  2. Roast the bones for 30 minutes.
  3. Add chicken bones to slow cooker and cover with enough water so that all ingredients are submerged.
  4. Turn on Crock-Pot to low heat and let cook for 24 hours.
  5. Strain the broth into a bowl through a colander, and strain once more through a cheesecloth to remove any remaining particles.
  6. Pour broth in a large bowl or container, then place in the fridge to cool. Once it’s cooled, it will solidify into a giant Jell-O jiggler.
  7. Scrape any fat off the top.

Your gelatin should keep in the fridge for up to one week, or six months in the freezer.

How to Get More Gelatin in Your Diet

The health benefits of consuming gelatin are endless, helping promote a healthy joints, muscles, bones, and even a healthy brain. It can help improve your digestion, boost your mental focus, aid in injury repair, and speed up your metabolism.

Like collagen, you can easily get more gelatin in your diet by making bone broth at home. However, if the process of making homemade gelatin is too time-intensive, you could always buy store-bought gelatin powder. For those who don’t eat animal products, there are several forms of fish-based collagen available on the market.

Simply add a tablespoon of collagen to your beverage of choice, using either hot water or cold water, or add to your post-workout shake or morning coffee to reap the benefits.

Wake Up to Wellness: Issue #2

What’s new in the world of health and wellness this week?

We’ve got you covered:

  • Protein bars that don’t taste like cardboard!
  • Why Vitaminwater is deceiving.
  • Bulletproof launches two new flavors!
  • A new program for women created by a startup for men.
  • Do you know what type of flu shot to get?

These Protein Bars Might Actually Taste Better Than a Candy Bar

Pre-workout, post-workout, in between meetings, in the car…protein bars have long been a go-to for hunger pains. But, it can be difficult to find one that packs a nutritional punch and has a flavor you actually enjoy.

Some are dry, some are difficult to chew, and some protein bars are so dense you can barely bite into them. Don’t fall back into the arms of a candy bar when hunger pangs hit. Stay on track and read more about seven protein bars that deliver flavor and nutrition.

Curious about flavors? Think maple sea salt, sweet BBQ bacon, salted brownie, sunflower cinnamon, and more. We’re already salivating. Read more here.

Which Type of Flu Shot Do You Need This Season?

We all know the importance of getting an annual flu shot. Protect yourself and avoid spreading it to those around you. They are available everywhere! Your doctor’s office, the pharmacy — even some employers and schools offer it in-house.

But did you know there is more than one type of flu shot? There’s two. One is called a trivalent vaccine and the other is called a quadrivalent vaccine.

What’s the difference? The trivalent vaccine offers protection against three flu strains, including influenza A (H1N1 or H3N2) and influenza B. The quadrivalent vaccine protects against an additional influenza B virus strain.

If you go to the doctor, they are likely to give you the quadrivalent vaccine to offer maximum coverage against all flu strains. However, the CDC recommends those 65 and older get a high dose trivalent vaccine, which offers more protection from the most dangerous strains while still protecting the vulnerable immune systems of the elderly.

Questions? Ask your doctor what the best choice is for you. Read the full story here.

Why You Might Want to Rethink Vitaminwater

Vitaminwater has become popular because people mistakenly assume it’s a healthy substitute for soda and other sugary beverages.

However, most versions of Vitaminwater are loaded with sugars, even as much as a can of soda. Vitaminwater is owned by Coca-Cola and they have been sued for marketing it as a healthy beverage. The lawsuit came from nonprofit The Center for Science in the Public Interest. The lawyers claimed that Vitaminwater labels and advertising had deceptive claims and used marketing with sports stars to advertise that Vitaminwater is a healthy way to hydrate.

Federal Judge John Gleeson wrote, “At oral arguments, defendants (Coca-Cola) suggested that no consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking Vitaminwater was a healthy beverage. Accordingly, I must accept the factual allegations in the complaint as true.”

Liquid sugars can be just as fattening as those found in other foods and have costly health risks. Those who consume too much sugar are at risk for weight gain, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, tooth decay, and heart disease — just to name a few.

Vitaminwater has 32 grams of sugar per bottle, over half of the recommended daily intake. Stick with water and other low sugar drinks. There is a line of Vitaminwater Zero drinks that are made with erythritol and stevia that may be a better option. Learn more here.

New Flavors From Bulletproof

In 2015, the ready-to-drink coffee and tea industry had $71 billion in sales. By 2024, it is projected to reach a whopping $116 billion, according to Grand View Research. To meet the demand, Bulletproof is expanding their current line of RTD cold brew coffee, which currently includes Original, Vanilla, Mocha, and Original + Collagen Protein.

Bulletproof’s cold brew is chock-full of health benefits.

The Brain Octane oil in it, extracted from the most nutritious part of a coconut, fuels your brain and stops hunger pangs in their tracks. It’s perfect for those on a ketogenic diet because Brain Octane converts into fat burning energy that doesn’t get stored in your body, helping you reach your health and fitness goals.

Even better, there’s no sugar in Bulletproof coffee, so you won’t have any “crashing” throughout your day. You’ll also get 15 grams of collagen protein in each bottle, which is great for your hair, skin, and nails.
