Cocoa, Even With Few Flavonoids, Boosts Cognition

Posted August 12, 2013

Drinking cocoa, whether rich in flavonoids or not, appears to boost the effect of blood flow on neuronal activity in the brain, known as neurovascular coupling (NVC). A new study shows not only that drinking flavonoid-rich or flavonoid-poor cocoa improves NVC but also that higher NVC is associated with better cognitive performance and greater cerebral white matter structural integrity in elderly patients with vascular risk factors.

Yerba Mate Tea Fights Colon Cancer

Posted April 30, 2012

A new study conducted at the University of Illinois shows that the compounds in yerba mate tea have the ability to essentially make colon cancer cells self-destruct. In addition to inducing cell death in colon cancer cells, the study also showed that yerba mate reduced important markers of inflammation, which is significant as inflammation can trigger the steps of cancer progression.

Study confirms that vitamin D deficiency increases aggressiveness of colon cancer

Posted April 30, 2012

A study conducted by VHIO researchers confirms that a lack of vitamin D increases the aggressiveness of colon cancer. The indication that vitamin D and its derivatives have a protective effect against various types of cancer is not new. In the field of colon cancer, numerous experimental and epidemiological studies show that vitamin D3 (or cholecalciferol) and some of its derivatives inhibit the growth of cancerous cells.
