Nettle Leaf Helps Inflammatory


Bowel Patients Nettle, a common roadside weed, may offer hope for sufferers of inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. Research from Iran’s University of Medical Sciences tested 59 patients with inflammatory bowel disease in a 12-week, double-blind clinical trial with an extract of nettle leaf (Urtica dioica). Those receiving the nettle leaf extract had lower blood levels of the C-reactive protein inflammatory marker along with a significant improvement in their inflammatory bowel disease quality-of-life scores.


Artificial Sweeteners Harm Gut Microbes


Six popular artificial sweeteners approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration—aspartame, sucralose, neotame, saccharine, advantame and acesulfame potassium-k—were found to be toxic to digestive gut microbes in a new paper published in Molecules. Researchers at Israel’s Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University tested each sweetener along with 10 sports drinks that contained them. They discovered that otherwise healthy bacteria found in the digestive


system became toxic when they came into contact with even one mg/ml (less than one-hundredth of a teaspoon) of the artificial sweeteners.


Unity of the Triangle Our New Year ’s Commitment:


Low-Nutrition Foods Linked to


Cancers In a 10-nation study involving nearly half a million Europeans, researchers found that those eating foods with lower nutritional quality had a significantly greater incidence of cancer, especially colorectal, upper digestive tract, stomach and lung cancers for men, and liver and postmenopausal breast cancers for women. The study supports wider adoption of a British front-of- package food nutritional content labeling system.
