Yet again very interesting topics this week in the weekly round-up of fitness and nutrition science research. This week scientists were investigating Type 2 diabetes, other medical conditions, cognitive function and and their correlation to exercise, nutrition and survival skills.
This week's research results are really of varied topic: from VR benefits in training through how the Mediterranean diet may be an answer for many modern life challenges to other nutrition habits or foods and their effects on our lives.
This week's fitness and nutrition research has ventured into less known research subjects, like the connection betwen exercise and memory function, how mental imagery technique can boost weight loss results, the beneficial effects of milk protein on people going through cancer treatment or how Nepal's Sherpa people have muscles specially adapted to their environment that makes them more resistant to muscle fatigue.
Scientists once again had a very busy week publishing papers, the below snippets are just the highlights of what'd been going on. Research topics are around the connection between the gut, our brain, obesity and metabolic deseases. Did you know for certain animal research they use the fruit flies? They seem to be the most sensitive exerimental system to monitor diet induced cellular changes, likely the closest science can get to how mammals would react. Mindblowing.
This week's topics vary on a larger scale: how elevated blood sugar levels in pregnancy can affect both the mother's and the child's health, the benefits of dietary fiber for ageing population and they seem to have found a molecule with anti-ageing effect on the vascular system. If you always wondered WHY we burn more energy when we exercise, you may find your answer here too.
Can we blame early menopause in women on lack of exercise? How can sleep deprivation trigger and consuming whole grains potentially prevent Type 2 diabetes? How can marriage prevent malnutrition in the elderly? Can exercise trigger production of new neurons and improve cognition in Alzheimer's? Find answers to these questions and more in this week's edition of Science Weekly.
This week's fitness and nutrition research round-up is rather interesting and investigates potentially dividing topics.
This week's scientific research round-up entertains a variety of fitness and nutrition topics, including eating habits, LDL cholesterol in young adults, how parenting can affect the children's chances of developing a higher BMI, the importance of sleep t prevent weight gain and a number of studies on mice to learn more about the hormonal system. Feel free to comment your thoughts.
This week's line-up includes studies conducted to identify markers in children's fitness and health, how living near a forest would increase their chances to eat healthier, the role protein plays in preventing fatty liver disease after a weight loss project or how resistance training improves our overall motivation to exercise. Have fun!
