Reading Time: 2 minutes В течение длительного промежутка времени ученые изучали, изменяет ли употребление чая концентрацию липопротеинов высокой плотности у людей старшего возраста.   Существует два вида холестерина: “хороший” холестерин (обычно так обозначают липопротеины высокой плотности, ЛПВП) и “плохой ”холестерин ЛПНП (липопротеины низкой плотности, ЛПНП). С возрастом концентрация “хорошего” холестерина в организме человека естественным образом

An international research team evaluated a new blood test which could detect early brain damage in pre-symptomatic Alzheimer’s disease. In degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease or multiple sclerosis, brain damage and structural changes occur long before symptoms appear in the patient. These changes can be detected by brain scans or in samples taken

In a recent study published in PLoS ONE, researchers presented a new way of identifying depression and anxiety in children. There is a growing rate of children suffering from internalizing disorders, such as depression and anxiety. One in five children suffer from one of these conditions, some starting as early as preschool years. It is

A recent study investigated how ghrelin, a stomach hormone, promotes individuals’ conditioning to food-related odours and eating behaviours. Obesity, defined as the excess of body fat, is an increasingly prevalent phenomenon that is associated with an elevated risk of many chronic diseases, including hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. There are several factors that have contributed

A recent study investigated a new signaling molecule, interleukin-6, that may play a crucial role in regulating exercise-associated loss in belly fat. Obesity, defined as an excess of body fat, can increase the risk of several medical complications, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Moreover, excessive belly fat can worsen health outcomes, result in low self-esteem,
