Daily supplements of Green Tea Extract may boost mental alertness and enhance memory, according to a recent new study. Daily supplements of Green Tea Extract may boost mental alertness and enhance memory, according to a recent new study.
A combination of a green tea extract with L-theanine was associated with improvements in immediate and delayed recall, and general memory according to finsings published in the Journal of Medicinal Foods. The study was funded by Korea’s LG household & Health Care Ltd.
The majority of science on tea has looked at green tea, with benefits reported for reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s and certain cancers, improving cardiovascular and oral health, as well as aiding in weight management.
Ninety-one participants with mild cognitive impairment – a risk of Alzheimer’s disease – were recruited and randomly received either 1,680mg of green tea extract L-theanine combination (LGNC-07) or placebo (maltodextrin plus lactose) for 16 weeks. A number of tests were used to assess memory and attention. Results showed that volunteers receiving the green tea supplement exhibited improvements in memory: ‘Marginal’ improvements were observed with regards to the delay in recognistion, and ‘significant’ increases in memory regarding recall of word reading.
The mental benefits of tea and the L-theanine it contains have been the subject of interest and research by numerous companies with this recent study confirming previous findings. http://bit.ly/l8ReCM

What is Pericalm?
The Pericalm is a pelvic floor stimulation unit, ideal for those who have weak pelvic floor muscles. It provides an alternative method of strengthening the muscles to the traditional ‘squeeze and lift’ exercises, which some women may find difficult when first starting. Bladder sensitivity can also be reduced by using the Pericalm. The Pericalm has 6 pre-set programmes specifically designed to help with a range of pelvic floor problems including stress incontinence, urge incontinence (overactive bladder), mixed incontinence, pelvic pain relief and for a general pelvic floor workout.
How does Pericalm work?
Used with the Periform Plus vaginal electrode or Anuform electrodes (see related products), Pericalm delivers electrical stimulation which automatically contracts your pelvic floor muscles. All you need to do is select your preferred programme and gradually increase the intensity. If you are using the unit under the guidance of a Continence Specialist, Pericalm will allow you to continue your treatment at home in between your appointments!
Unit Supplied with two cables, battery, user manual, and soft carry case.
Two year manufacturer’s warranty. Follow the link here http://bit.ly/e6vtpj
The sooner people exercise after a heart attack, the better, new research has suggested.
Exercising after a heart attack promotes a favourable outcome in stable patients, research has shown, indicating that some people looking to find a care home may also want to keep fit.
Scientists at the University of Alberta revealed that stable patients who have had a heart attack reaped more benefits from exercise when starting one week after a heart attack.
Moreover, it was found that for every week patients waited after the cardiovascular event to begin exercising, they would need to train for an extra month to gain the same benefits.
Co-author Mark Haykowsky said: “While it’s been shown that exercise has a favourable effect on heart function, it’s also important to dispel the idea that what the heart needs is rest.”
This follows news that dangerous blood pressure rises during exercise can be prevented, according to research conducted at the University of Texas, meaning that older people may be able to exercise without the worry of hypertension.
We at Broby have a range of exercise equipment on our web site or call us to discuss what you are looking for.
New Studies reports how digestive Green Tea compounds show dementia benefits
New Studies reports how digestive Green Tea compounds show dementia benefits.
Digested polyphenol compounds from green tea could protect the brain against developing Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, according to new research.
The in vitro study, published by Phytomedicine, confirmed that post-digestion, extracts of the phytochemical rich product shows protective effects for dementia.
The researchers investigated whether the protective properties of green tea, were still active once the tablet had been digested. Lead researcher Dr Ed Okello from Newcastle University, UK, said that just because a consumed food is generally accepted to contain health-boosting properties; it should not be assumed that such compounds will ever be adborbed in the body.
Alzheimer’s disease – the most common form of dementia- is a progressive and irreversable neurodegenerative disorder associated with cognitive dysfunction. Green Tea is high in flavin-3-ols, which are believed to be effecient scavengers of highly reactive free radical species, and have been shown to exhibit anti-carcinogenic, hypocholesterolaemic and neuroprotective properties in previous research.
The CAGTE, which represents green tea phytochemicals potentially available after upper gastrointestinal digestion, was found to be depleted in flavan-3-ols when compared to the pre-digested green tea extract.
Okello says; “Green Tea has been used in Traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and what we have here provides scientific evedence why it may be effective against some of the key diseases we face today”
