Sleep and Progurt

Progurt Team - Monday, August 25, 2014

Birds are the only non-mammalian group to engage in REM sleep and may generally sleep for as many hours as humans depending upon their age. In a University of Lausanne study of baby barn owls, their sleep showed human awake-like activity, their eyes remained closed and their heads nodded slowly.

Delightful sleep similarities to humans; but there is one striking difference. Sleep deprivation. Migratory birds may fly up to 19 days without sleep. Birds in their natural environment don’t show the same cognitive and physical impairments suffered by humans when ‘deprived’ of sleep.

According to the Harvard Women’s Health Watch, human sleep deprivation causes: 1. Learning and memory impairment. 2. Weight gain: by altering levels of hormones that affect appetite. 3. Irritability, impatience, inability to concentrate, and moodiness. 4. Cardiovascular health: increased stress hormone levels, and irregular heartbeat. 5. Immune function alteration, leading to diseases.  More...

Good gut bacteria to fight obesity.

Progurt Team - Monday, August 04, 2014

"Manipulation of intestinal bacteria could offer a new approach to manage obesity and type 2 diabetes." (Dr. Yalcin Basaran, endocrinologist at the June 2014 annual joint meeting of the International Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society in Chicago.)

Obese people and those with type 2 diabetes have lower levels of common types of "good" intestinal bacteria than healthy people, Dr Basaran’s study reveals.

"Manipulation of intestinal bacteria could offer a new approach to manage obesity and type 2 diabetes," Dr Basaran added. The new study included 27 severely obese adults, 26 adults newly diagnosed with diabetes, and a "control group" of 28 healthy adults. All of the participants were aged 18 to 65 and none had taken antibiotics within the past three months (antibiotics can alter intestinal bacteria). The obese and diabetic adults had considerably lower levels of the most common types of gut bacteria than those in the control group, the investigators found. These levels were about 4 percent to 12.5 percent lower in the obese patients, and 10 percent to 11.5 percent lower in the diabetes patients.
