Milk & Glutathione :
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (published on: 06/24/2015)
A team of neurologists and dieticians at the University of Kansas shows for the first time that people who regularly consume milk and dairy products have higher concentrations of glutathione in the brain. Glutathione is not provided by food, but our body makes it from certain nutrients. And glutathione plays a fundamental role: it is the major antioxidant in our cells, which it protects against free radicals (oxidative stress).
American researchers conducted a study on a group of middle-aged and older people. A scanner evaluated the level of glutathione in the brain, in particular in the prefrontal cortex (cortex of higher cognitive functions: language, working memory, reasoning, etc.). The result shows that the concentrations are higher in the participants whose intake of dairy products was higher during the previous days. And this remains true taking into account parameters such as gender, weight and fat distribution. In other words, add these specialists, the consumption of three servings of dairy products per day (milk, cheese, yogurt, etc.), or even four for the elderly, can help protect the brain against cellular damage caused by oxidative stress, involved. in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease.
Betadine , MEBO & Wounds :
A common mistake that many people make when dealing with superficial/medium burns and wounds : Where Betadine is placed with MEBO (ointment) on burns or wounds directly, and this is a mistake.. Betadine and MEBO should not be used at the same time.
- Superficial burns or wounds should be cleansed with Betadine first, wait until it dries up then use Mebo ointment..
Why ? The active substance in Mebo is β-sitostérol, a herbal substance , And Bétadine, its active substance is called Povidone iodine , which is an oxidizing agent that oxidizes the active substance in the MEBO and causes its denaturation.
