Meal regularity appears beneficial for weight management and metabolic health. The 6-7 yr intervention was part of a randomized controlled trial on the prevention of knee osteoarthritis study.
Most mature people need to drink more water. 58.1% of people over 65 had serum osmolality consistent with impending dehydration or dehydration.
We show, for the first time to our knowledge, that epicatechin intake is inversely related to CHD mortality in elderly men and to CVD mortality in prevalent cases of CVD. Best sources are green tea, dark chocolate/cocoa, dark fruits and berries. Data from the University of California Davis indicate that 100 grams of brewed green tea contain 2.6 milligrams of catechin, 8.3 milligrams of epicatechin and 114.3 milligrams of epigallocatechin, epicatechin gallate and EGCG. The same amount of brewed black tea contains 1.5 milligrams of catechin, 2.1 milligrams of epicatechin and 23.1 milligrams of epigallocatechin, epicatechin gallate and EGCG.
Vitamin D deficiency may contribute to ulcerative colitis inflammation by disrupting epithelial barrier function.
These data suggest that higher phosphatidylcholine consumption is associated with 15% increased all-cause and CVD mortality in the US population. Meat and fish are sources of phosphatidylcholine.
Resistant starch amounts in modern processed foods are low, which could explain the increase in conditions such as colorectal cancer as a result of a simple short-chain fatty acids
Exercise is good for health, though exercise and diet have little long term effect on weight. A long-lasting intervention effect on change in physical activity was found, which increased over time. For weight change, smaller differences were found, which decreased over time.
Among community-dwelling older adults, FV consumption was associated with a lower short-term risk of frailty in a dose-response manner, and the strongest association was obtained with 3 portions of fruit/d and 2 portions of vegetables/d.
Vitamin C supplement use (ever compared with never) was not associated with breast cancer risk overall; it was associated with 32% higher breast cancer risk in women in the fourth quartile of vitamin C intake from foods.
