Green tea extract intake for four weeks linked to lower blood sugar levels and improved gut health

A new study on heart disease risk factors found that green tea extract consumed for four weeks could reduce blood sugar and improve gut health, by reducing inflammation and decreasing the “leaky stomach.” Researchers say this is the first research to assess whether green tea’s antiinflammatory benefits may reduce the health risks associated with metabolic […]

Researchers exploring the development of mucosal vaccines for respiratory viruses

NIH experts provide perspective on next-generation methods. It has been extremely difficult to create vaccines that offer long-lasting protection from influenza, coronaviruses and respiratory syncytial viruses (RSV). In a review article published in cell host & microbe by researchers at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the NIH explores the challenges and outlines approaches […]

Indian researchers from ACTREC unveil groundbreaking therapeutic agent for a range of diseases

Research from India’s Tata Memorial Centre suggests that free radicals (ROS) generated upon mixing two nutraceuticals–resveratrol and copper–can help ameliorate various diseases by inactivating cell-free chromatin particles. The chromatin is a mixture of proteins and DNA that forms the structure of the chromosomes within the nucleus of the cell. Cells that die release “cfChPs”, or cell-free […]

Scientists at Stanford Medicine identify entry and exit points of the COVID-19 virus within the nasal passages

Stanford Medicine researchers have made a discovery that could pave the road for a prophylactic nasal spray or “morning-after” spray to help prevent infection. Someone just coughed in your face. On a flight. At a dinner party. In the supermarket queue There should be a nasal spray for the morning after that can stop respiratory viruses from colonizing […]

Research reveals that cocoa flavanols effectively reduce blood pressure and arterial stiffness

A new study by the University of Surrey found that cocoa reduces blood tension and arterial stiffness only when it is elevated. Cocoa flavanols were found to reduce blood pressure as well as arterial stiffness, as effectively as some blood-pressure medications. But the effectiveness of flavanols in reducing blood tension in everyday life is still unknown. […]

No significant reduction in COVID-19 hospitalizations observed in high-risk vaccinated individuals treated with Molnupiravir

Researchers from the University of Oxford released findings from a clinical trial investigating the effectiveness of the antiviral treatment molnupiravir against COVID-19 – the first treatment tested in the ongoing PANORAMIC trial. In their paper published in The Lancet, they reported that molnupiravir did not reduce hospitalizations or deaths among higher-risk, vaccinated adults with COVID-19 […]
