Many traditional fermented foods and beverages that contain probiotic microbes can help with H.pylori. A few studies showed that consumption of probiotic foods such as kefir, cultured vegetables and kombucha are beneficial in helping with H. pylori infection. These probiotic foods bring in a fresh inocula of microbes to your gastrointestinal tract. Several strains such as Lactobacillus, L. plantarum, and Saccharomyces are especially effective in bringing balance to the gut when infected with H. pylori.

#Gutmicrobes appear to regulate many biological processes, including host #lifespan. Now, researchers have found that the type of microbiota that recolonizes the gut after exposure to antibiotics in early life can lead to a shortened lifespan — at least in mice.

The findings, published in Cell Reports, suggest that differences in the microbiota following early exposure to antibiotics can reprogram the immune system, leading to consequences on immunity, metabolism and lifespan later in life.

Studies have suggested that the make-up of the gut microbiota is linked to overall lifespan of the host, with specific compositions appearing to be predictive of host’s age and mortality. However, the link between gut microbes and host lifespan has largely been studied in invertebrates and mice with shortened lifespan, and there has been a paucity of data on whether early-life antibiotics could affect the lifespan of healthy mice.

“This is the first time we’ve been able to monitor the impact that changes in gut #microbiome due to antibiotics in early life can have on mice throughout their normal lifespan,” says study senior author David Lynn.

In store is a range of Dr Boxall's natural products to help you !

How Green Coffee Bean Extract Compliments Weight Management:
Dr.Boxall’s Green Coffee Beans have an active ingredient called chlorogenic acid. This acid is the key
to its weight loss benefits, as it signal your liver to burn stored fat FIRST. It also slows the processing of sugar into glucose, so there is less of it in your blood. This makes for more fat burning, and excess glucose does not turn into fat later.

How Raspberry Ketone(s) Compliments Weight Management:
Dr. Boxall’s Raspberry Ketone(s),or RK, may stimulate the production of adiponectin, a hormone found in fatty tissue that improves our ability to metabolize fat and furthermore reduce fat intake.

How Hoodia Gordonii Compliments Weight Management:
The active ingredient identified in Hoodia is a steroidal glycoside that has been called "p57". This
molecule “p57” increases hypothalamic ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Increased ATP triggers a
message to your brain of satiety and eliminating the need to consume food in order to boost glucose level therefore eliminating the desire to eat.

Like other chronic and seemingly intractable illnesses, the incidence of depression is reaching epidemic levels. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and an estimated 350 million people of all ages suffer from depression. It’s a complex and notoriously difficult to treat condition. It often occurs alongside comorbidities such as anxiety, chronic pain and obesity, but it may also present as an isolated issue with no obvious underlying cause(s). The reduced quality of life caused by depression is difficult for patients to soldier through, and healthcare professionals may feel frustrated that they have limited options to offer patients beyond pharmaceutical drugs that frequently induce side-effects that may be nearly as unpleasant as the depression, itself.

Patients and medical professionals alike are seeking natural remedies that are safe and effective for combating depression. Commonly employed compounds include St. John’s wort, 5-HTP, and vitamins B6, B12, and folate. A lesser-known but efficacious compound for boosting mood as well as addressing some of the other issues that may occur along with depression—anxiety, in particular—is sceletium, also known as Kanna, Channa, or Kougoed. This extract is considered a nootropic, and comes from Sceletium tortuosum, a plant native to southern Africa. The sceletium plant has been used by indigenous peoples for centuries for relaxation, stress reduction, and calming thirst and hunger signals prior to long hunting trips. “Historically Sceletium tortuosum (Kanna) was chewed, smoked or used as s***f producing euphoria and alertness which gently fade into relaxation.”

Modern research now supports the efficacy of this traditionally employed compound for enhancing positive mood and cognitive function, reducing stress, and inducing calm without sedative effects, and, very importantly, without inducing dependency. Two main mechanisms underlie sceletium’s effects. First, it acts as a natural selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). Sceletium binds to serotonin transporters, inhibiting reuptake of this neurotransmitter from the synapse of serotonergic neurons, resulting in an increased serotonin concentration in the synaptic cleft, in the same fashion as prescription SSRIs.

Sceletium’s second mechanism of action is in inhibiting phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE4). PDE4 is an enzyme that hydrolyzes cyclic AMP (cAMP) and is highly expressed in brain regions involved in memory, anxiety and depression, including the amygdala, nucleus accumbens and hippocampus. Animal models suggest PDE4 inhibitors can reverse depression, improve cognition and alleviate anxiety. A small, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study showed that oral supplementation with sceletium resulted in significant attenuation of the threat circuitry of the human brain, which may have positive implications for reducing anxiety. PDE4 inhibitors may have positive effects on cognitive function and overall neurological health by enhancing the differentiation of oligodendrocyte progenitor cells and facilitating

acceleration of re-myelination of damaged cells in the central nervous system. Moreover, it has been suggested that SSRIs and PDE4 inhibitors work synergistically, because use of SSRIs may upregulate PDE4 activity, subsequently reducing sensitivity to SSRIs over the long-term. Therefore, a compound capable of both actions may be more effective and have broader therapeutic utility than either intervention on its own. The two major alkaloids in sceletium—mesembrine and mesembrenone—are responsible for most of the extract’s effects. Mesembrine is the predominant serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI), while mesembrenone is a dual SRI and PDE4 inhibitor.

Another interesting aspect of sceletium is its influence on appetite and thirst. The San and Khoikhoi peoples of southwestern Africa chewed on sceletium to attenuate hunger during long hunting trips. This may be helpful for individuals whose anxiety and/or depression leads them to seek comfort in food.

Sceletium is not habit-forming and does not result in withdrawal symptoms common with tapering off pharmaceutical antidepressant and anxiolytic drugs. It may be combined with other supplements to help support stable emotions and a positive mental outlook, such as 5-HTP and vitamin B6, although caution is warranted when recommending sceletium to patients who are taking antidepressant or anti-anxiety medications.

We have these wonderful products in store, in 5 different combinations, please whatsapp or visit our google store for more info.
