Quintessence consume chicken can increase the power of thought to be more responsive (fast) and improve short-term memory.

The study involved 20 students who were divided into two groups. The first group was fed 70 g of chicken extract , whereas the rest taking placebo ( milk protein ) twice a day . The study was conducted during the week and on the 7th day following the test participants thought and psychological mood.

Consequently, the group taking an extract of chicken has a lower error rate in tests of arithmetic and tests of short-term memory , as compared to those receiving placebo.

" This could happen because ( quintessence chicken) contain amino acids . And best of amino acids located in the chicken and other sources ," said dr . Philip Tsang Thursday to Celebrate 175 Years of Brand 's.
Natural amino acid or carnosine contained in an extract of chicken may increase carnosine in the body that decreases with age . Carnosine itself has immune enhancing properties , reduce and prevent cell damage caused by amyloid - beta ( the substance found in the brain of patients with Alzheimer's disease ) .

" Carnosine in the chicken excellence add antioxidants in the body. Could be held by free radicals antioxidants so as not to damage the body , " said Dr. Tsang .

The consumption of chicken essence itself is for all ages . Quintessence chicken also does not cause addiction or side effects so that there is no limit to the consumption of chicken essence . "Effect of dependence usually arises because the user is aware of his state of health was health has improved after taking an extract of chicken, " said Dr. Tsang .

The consumption of chicken nectars are also highly recommended in the morning. When consumed at night it is difficult to sleep. " No, because it contains caffeine, but because his mind in a work that does not sleep ," said Indra Laban , CEO of the brand 's.

Honey effective against super bacteria

Recent research suggests a type of honey that is used to heal wounds proved to be a great potential to overcome the super bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics a powerful drug.

As reported by the Daily Mail , reported manuka honey kinds effectively kill the three types of bacteria that commonly infect the body when wounded , including among other super germs Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) .

Manuka honey is a type of honey bee product occupants manuka tree in New Zealand . Experts have known this type of honey for a long time because it is often used in products of modern wound healing . The problem is the secret of the power of manuka honey to overcome injuries is still a mystery .

The team led by Professor Rose Cooper from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff ( UWIC ) , in his research , found that manuka honey was able to prevent the growth of bacteria in an unusual way . This honey can inhibit the process of bacterial binding on the network , which is an important step in the infection process .

"Preventing connection can also inhibit the formation of biofilms , which can protect bacteria from antibiotics and allow them to cause infection continuously ," said Cooper.
Other studies show Cooper, manuka honey make MRSA more sensitive to antibiotics such as oxacillin or reverse resistance to effective antibiotics.

"This indicates that existing antibiotics may be more effective treatment of infections caused by resistant bacteria when combined with manuka honey , " he said.

According to Professor Cooper, further research will be increasing clinical use of honey as doctors are now facing the problem of increasing cases of drug resistance.

" We need to find innovative and effective ways in controlling the infection is likely to contribute to increased antibiotic resistance ," said Cooper, who published his findings at the Society for General Microbiology conference " " in district Harrogate, North Yorkshire , England.

WHO is concerned about the overuse of antibiotics

The World Health Organization (WHO) warns that drug resistance was triggered in part by the irrational use of antibiotics has killed hundreds of thousands of people each year. Therefore, the necessary treatment immediately to resolve the problem.

"We really see accelerated evolution in the spread of this problem and the bottom line is faster than solving the problem ," said Deputy Director -General of WHO Keiji Fukuda .

Health experts note , only a little saj anegara have a plan to address the problem of drug resistance , which increases amid rising consumption of antibiotics.

" In most countries , there is no plan, no budget, no line of accountability for the very serious problem . Weak monitoring system , this system does not exist in many places ," said said Mario Raviglione, wHO officials who led the campaign against tuberculosis. He added that the quality of antibiotics is questionable in some countries. "Optimal dose is not really a trigger mechanism to develop drug resistance . Use of antibiotics is often not possible, we call it irrational. Eastern facilitate the creation of drug resistance ," Did he said in addition, the use of antibiotics in livestock . - to promote growth and prevent disease and treat sick animals - also contributes to drug resistance Each drug resistant microbes that thrive in . farm animals can transmit to humans through the food chain.

Because germs will always try to be drug-resistant , " this problem will never go away ," said Fukuda .
WHO expose the problem of the use of antibiotics as a major problem in commemorating World Health Day this year. Which means that all governments , civil society and the pharmaceutical industry faces a variety of strategies to deal with drug resistance .

Chilean lawyers fight against antibiotic resistance

Antibiotic resistance or drug-resistant bacteria is a health problem faced by the medical world today. Hopes to solve this problem is the lawyer of Chile.

In a study published in the Journal of Microbial chemotherapy showed that the content of lawyers Chile is capable of withstanding the mechanisms of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (also called infeksek staph ) .

The staph infection known as a type of bacterial infection that is most often experienced by people postoperatively . The incidence of bacterial infection is severe enough , ranging from sepsis to food poisoning .

Lawyers dual effect of Chile combined with conventional antibiotics was effective enough to overcome infections that are resistant to antibiotics alone.

According to the researchers , the lawyer may lower levels of CMI antibiotics. MIC is the lowest concentration of antibiotics needed to stop the growth of bacteria . Chile lawyers who have studied the levels of antibiotics called CMI can reduce up to eight times .

" Bacteria resistant expenditure mechanism in the body of the diaphragm pump that works to encourage antibiotic. Successful search recognize the content of the work behind the pump so that the bacterial defense mechanism that made ??him famous . Consequently , antibiotics can work , "said Jes Glitz Holler , scientists from University of Copenhagen in Denmark are this search.

Besides lawyers researchers are now also investigating several substances to fight super bacteria, one of which is honey made ??from manuka flowers. In laboratory studies , the bacteria were resistant active substances necessary for success honey.

Flu and Cough Not Need Antibiotics

The irrational use of antibiotics most often cough and runny nose due to viruses . Nearly a quarter of people believe that the flu and cough heal faster if antibiotics Treaty. In fact , only the antibiotic to cure diseases caused by bacteria , while caused by influenza viruses .

The results of a survey conducted by the Health Protection Agency (HPA ) is made in the UK over 1,800 people . The survey also revealed that 1 in 10 people do not pass the prescription of antibiotics and the rest will eat pain if one day return .

Although the survey in the UK , in fact, the irrational use of antibiotics took place almost in many places , including Indonesia. Citing reports World Health Organization (WHO) in 2005 showed an average of 50 prescription drugs in health centers and hospitals in Indonsia containing antibiotics.
Similar results were found in studies Parents Foundation care. A total of 86.4 percent of children with a viral infection characterized by fever and 74.1 percent of children with diarrhea with antibiotics prescribed.
Antibotik is an important discovery in the world of health. However, these drugs can not cure all diseases. Rational use will harm than good .

The habit of giving antibiotics incorrect dose , frequency of administration are false, and the time is too long or quickly reduce the effectiveness of antibiotics as a germ killer . Ineffective therapies pose a serious resistance to drugs.

According to HPA 30 percent of respondents buy antibiotics each year. " This proves that the more often we take antibiotics, the more likely race in the resistance. Another side effect is diarrhea due to antibiotics ," said Dr.Clioda McNulty, the HPA .

HPA also recommends that health care workers will limit the wishes of the patient antibotik as 97 percent of respondents said the last time they asked antibotik the doctor, they were immediately given a prescription .
" Despite many years campaigned on the dangers of drug resistance and the flu and cough disease can not be cured with antibotik , in fact, the myth is still believed," said McNulty .

Antibiotics can trigger asthma cases

The use of antibiotics is not fair was not only trigger the resistance of germs to antibiotics , but it also has the potential to increase the incidence and severity of allergic asthma at an early age . Thus, the results of research conducted by experts from the University of British Columbia.

This finding was published today in the journal EMBO Reports. In his study, the researchers found that the use of certain antibiotics can kill bacteria in the gut that can trigger the development of asthma.

" It has long been known that many children who are frequently exposed to antibiotics - as is the case in some developed countries - so they are more vulnerable to asthma," said researcher Brett Finlay, a microbiologist at the University of British Columbia.

"Our study is the first experimental evidence that shows how exposure to antibiotics can lead to the onset of asthma ," he added .

In his research, Finlay and his team examined how the effects of the use of two types of widely used antibiotics such as streptomycin and vancomycin can affect bacteria in the intestinal ecosystem. Finlay found that vancomycin can change the bacterial community in the gut and increase the severity of asthma ( results of experiments on rats).

Although the use of antibiotics in the same mice did not affect the adult mouse sensitivity to asthma . This suggests that life is a critical period early in the construction of a healthy immune system .

The researchers noted , asthma affects more than 100 million people worldwide and its prevalence is increasing by an average of 50 percent per decade , particularly among children in industrialized countries.

Finlay said in the intestines of humans , there are about 100000000000000 bacteria, and contains more than 1,000 species of bacteria. "Although not fully understood, but micro -organisms , which are known as" gut flora " perform a number of functions that is particularly useful for humans ," said Finlay.

"The practice of modern social, such as improved methods of sanitation and the widespread use of antibiotics , said that the cause of the disappearance of species of good bacteria in our gut may be important for healthy immune system , "said Finlay.

Finlay reiterated give antibiotics to children may be able to disrupt the normal life of the bacterium , which should not be underestimated.

The study was funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) . Marc Ouellette , Scientific Director of CIHR revealed , " was recognized that microbes play an important role in human health - and we found that disruption of the bacteria has been associated with several chronic health problems .

An important outcome of the team of Professor Finlay confirmed that " the administration of antibiotics for young children, disrupting the normal bacterial flora, should not be taken lightly . "

Need a natural antibiotic ? Select the garlic !

You avoid the consumption of synthetic drugs have no choice other drugs are more natural if you need antibiotics. The reason , according to the University of Washington in the United States garlic commonly used as a spice in cooking has an active substance that is 100 times better compared two well-known antibiotics , erythromycin and classes ciprofloxacin in the fight against food poisoning.

Tests were done to prove , diallyl sulfide compounds found in garlic can protect food against insects harmful substances delivered. The discovery was published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy opens new avenues for the technology of meat processing , because garlic can reduce the risk of poisoning Campylobacter .

"This study is very interesting because it shows that compounds found in garlic can reduce pathogenic bacteria in the environment and food. Campylobacter is a major cause of bacterial foodborne United States and worldwide disease, " said Dr . Michael Konkel at the University of Washington .

Campylobacter also cause diarrhea , cramping , abdominal pain and fever . These bacteria have also emerged as a trigger nearly a third of disorders or paralysis called Guillain -Barré rare.

Most Campylobacter infections occur as a result of the consumption of raw poultry meat, half cooked or food that has been contaminated by dirty cutlery.

This is a major case of food poisoning in the UK by the Food Standards Agency and stated that up to 88 deaths in England and Wales in 2009.

Fish oil supplements to improve children's ability Read

Many parents give fish oil supplements for their children because the calcium and omega- 3 is good for growth. According to recent studies , fish oil can also improve the reading skills of children.

Researchers at the University of Oxford, UK, research on the benefits of omega - 3 reading ability . 362 children aged 7-9 years given fish oil supplements as a source of omega - 3 fatty acids at a dose of 600 mg for 16 weeks.

Although there is no significant effect on the entire sample , but children with low reading ability , after a routine source of omega-3 , the increase in capacity reading in three weeks compared to children who received a placebo or supplements have no active ingredient.

Dr Alex Richardson, principal investigator of the Center for intervention based on evidence at the University of Oxford , said , omega -3 proven to improve the reading skills of children who are in the lowest price supplementation to match his friends.

Above studies , omega -3 supplementation is also beneficial for children who suffer from disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder , children with dyslexia and impaired coordination of development.

Even so, parents should not rely too much on the ability of supplements to improve the reading skills of children in a short period of time.

Taking the goodness of fish oil supplements

You can often read about the consumption of a variety of fish, especially fish at least twice a week . The recommendation is the food of fish rich in omega -3 is very good for brain health to heart .

The human body can not produce omega- 3 fatty acids, so we need to get food . Omega - 3 is common in a variety of marine fish such as salmon , tuna , cod, and so on.

Unfortunately, fish consumption in Indonesia is low. In a 2007 report consumption derived from the new Indonesian fish about 14 percent , much lower than 17.9 per cent of Cambodia and Malaysia reached 22 percent protein.

Given the importance of the nutrient content of fish nutrition experts agree that fish oil supplements should be considered as an additional source of nutrients.

According Dr.Fiastuti Witjaksono , Sp.GK , there are three types of fatty acids in fish oil , unsaturated fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids.

Fatty acids in fish oil help children's intelligence , promote the development of the sense of sight, as well as the immune system of infants and toddlers .

In adults, fish oil is also a very important role in reducing inflammation so that we avoid heart disease , rheumatoid arthritis , a disease of dementia in the elderly.

Although derived from fish, but according to fish oil supplements Fiastuti is safe for people allergic to fish. " For those who are allergic should choose fish oil from fish oil that stores in the liver ( liver oil fish ) , " he said at a press event held by emulsion formation Champs in Jakarta some time ago ..

In addition to omega- 3 fatty acids , you should choose products that also contain vitamin supplements .

Yet, according to parents Fiastuti must be wise before giving supplements to children . " It should be noted first that her son was a lack of nutrients or not . If nutrients are filled with food so you do not need supplements ," says nutritionist Faculty of Medicine, University of Indonesia.

To determine whether the nutritional needs of a child are met may be considered the child's diet . It belongs to a child who is difficult to eat or not , watching his weight and growth. When he is not sure , may consult a pediatrician.

Fiastuti warned of the dangers of excess vitamins . " Some types of vitamins that can interfere with the function of overload, the oxidation of the liver and cause excessive process," he said

Chew like ice Indication anemia ?

Manifestations of anemia is not just pale , soft, listless, and fireflies alone. Love eating ice cubes and clay may be a manifestation of anemia. This is called the identification problem and corrective action (AIP).

If you come across people with this habit , do not immediately assume that they are weird, but must pay attention to their health. Because people with PICA has a disproportionate risk of anemia.

Anemia , or known by the terms under simple blood is one of the symptoms caused by a lack of iron . The anemia is characterized by the amount of hemoglobin ( HB ) , which is less than the normal amount which is less than 12 in the female, and of less than 13.5 for men.

Decrease in HB rates will cause a reduction in the ability of blood to bind oxygen . As a result , the body was deficient oxygen supply , so it is easy to feel tired.

Anemia can cause a variety of serious health problems such as disorders and children's intelligence growth. The risk of bleeding during pregnancy and childbirth , and even the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases.

According to specialists in internal medicine Ayu Nadia Mulansari Division of Hematology-Oncology Faculty of medicine / RSCM , consumption of materials that are "weird" and do not contain nutrients such as ice , clay and sand causes malnutrition which ultimately leads to anemia .

" Anemia is an indicator of malnutrition. Nutrition should come from food , because eating ice replaced with stone or clay , so that nutritional needs are not met ," said Nadia in launch Center Tanya anemia in Jakarta last week ..

Reported by the New York Times, ice consumption can also interfere with the function of digestion and absorption of iron and other minerals. As a result, people will PICA iron deficiency . PICA is likely to disappear when the patient has received treatment for iron supplement.

Fish do not eat longevity routine?

The good news for you penyuka fish. A recent study said, regularly eating fish rich in omega - 3 fatty acids may be able to prolong your life.

Studies in the U.S. researchers analyzed more than 2,600 seniors. Those who have an omega-3 fatty acid higher in the average blood Live 2 years longer than those with lower rates.

" The study is not a study of fish oil supplements, but studies on omega fatty acid levels - 3 in the blood associated with the regime, " said researcher Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian , Professor epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston.

Studies published in the Annals of Internal Medicine is certainly no evidence of eating fish regularly can prolong life , but this study shows no link between the two .

" The omega fatty acid levels - 3 in the blood compared to low risk of death , mainly caused by cardiovascular problems ," said Mozaffarian .

Omega - 3 fatty acids can be found in salmon , mackerel , herring , mackerel, tuna, sardines. Fish are rich in protein and fatty acids have been researched in advance can reduce the risk of death from heart disease. However, for deaths from other diseases, remains unclear.

Then his Mozaffarian and his team also measured the fatty acid in the blood, not the consumption of food fish as was done previously.

At the beginning of the study, the researchers analyzed blood samples , physical activity and lifestyle of older participants averaged 74 years . At this time , none of the participants who consume Omega- 3 .

After completing 16 years , a total of 1,625 deaths, 570 are caused by cardiovascular disease. Study revealed , the more fatty acids omega -3 levels in the blood , the greater the risk of death.

Alice Lichtentein , director and principal investigator at the Cardiovascular Nutrition Laboratory at Tufts University , Boston, who was not involved in the study, said the study can not show cause and effect .

The study, he said , can not determine whether omega- 3 is directly responsible for reducing the risk of death or as an indicator of a healthy lifestyle . However, people who regularly eat fish usually also fans of vegetables and fruits.
The American Heart Association recommends eating fat fish like salmon about 100 grams twice a week . Even though, according Lichtentein , replace the fish with fish oil supplements do not necessarily give the same effect .

However, there are several factors that must be considered before the supplement is consumed , the user should pay attention to the state of his own body. Supplements can not be used by a person with a good physical condition.

" Those who are sick should consult your doctor because it could be a substance in the supplement actually worsen the pain ," says Michael .

Supplements users should also read the detailed instructions in the box . Michael has even suggested a new user must reduce the dose recommended . "In general, supplements dose packaging is for Westerners gVirt_NP_NN_NNPS __ < __ consumption was greater than Indonesia. Posture also affects the dose which should be consumed , "said Michael .

Without the proper dosage , adverse effects will arise in continuous use , like baldness , kidney and liver dysfunctions , heart attack, blurred vision , as well as brain and nervous disorders.

Therefore, the use of supplements would be better if it is accompanied by the doctor's instructions . " Do not follow the instructions to your friends or relatives who had , as it could have different effects , " said Michael .

In addition, as indicated by other sports doctor, Roy Tobias, many supplements training muscle mass are not registered and do not have the authorization of the Supervisory Agency Food and Drug Administration ( BPOM ) . The seller argued supplements, their merchandise is already listed in the Food and Drug Association registered in the United States or other developed countries.

"Consumers should be wary of supplements that are not listed on the national authorities. Often not all content is written honestly supplements. There are substances included anabolic steroids , but not write , "said Roy.

The use of large amounts to the athletes can be seen the negative effects in the three to four years . For people who do not use regularly , the negative effects will be felt in 20-30 years.

Lucky S BPOM head Slamet said he did not directly supervised substances , particularly steroids, are victims of violence. According to him, BPOM only monitor the hardware and can not be used in a product .

In the world of sport, doping Indonesian Institute ( LADI ) , as representative of the Council of the World Anti- Doping Agency ( WADA) , plays an important role in maintaining good sportsmanship . They also have to protect the athlete from the use of illicit substances.

However, its implementation has not been easy. " The rules of the AMA is already clear . Disadvantages operating budget to carry out the task of supervision of these institutions have become the biggest obstacle ," said President Dr. Dwi Hatmisari LADI Ambarukmi .

Dwi said , LADI role is important because it is responsible for overseeing the use of the list of prohibited substances by WADA. The list of substances that are always updated each year to manage LADI and doping control laboratories worldwide to determine the validity of the performance of the athlete.

Tips for removing fat meat

When diets many people avoid eating beef because of the high fat content.
"In fact, you do not need to be afraid of fat, because the meat does not make you fat. Which is fat is fat," said Véronique Droulez, Nutrition Manager Meat and Livestock Australia, when Banquet regional innovation workshops in Jakarta, some time ago.

Tips for removing fat meat

He added that the fat on meat is a lot, which is about 13.9 grams per 100 grams of beef. To reduce the fat content of the meat, you need to cut (trim) to clean all the fatty meat. Meat that has been cleaned (lean meat) leaving only 2.8 grams of fat per 100 grams of meat.

There is a trick that applied Véronique while eliminating the bacon grease.
"Fatty meat is white and usually in some parts of the meat. However must remove the white part on the surface of the meat alone," he advised.

Do not cut the white fat that still exist in the middle of the meat, as it will make the meat so truncated too low and does not correspond to the size you want.
In addition, less fat in the meat is usually melt when heated. Little fat is what makes the meat more flavorful taste


Relationship between fish consumption and the level of intelligence and also health has long been recognized. It turns out the secret ingredient in many fish that play a role in disease prevention is fish oil.

Fish Oil Health Benefits
Fish Oil Health Benefits

Fish oil, found in fish or supplements containing fat. Liquid fat in fish, so called fish oil.

Research shows many benefits of fish oil for health, but scientific evidence shows greatest benefit of fish oil for heart health.

The study also mentions the benefits of fish oil lowers triglyceride fats in the blood, slow the hardening of plaque formation in blood vessels, lowering blood pressure and preventing stroke in patients with diseases heart.

Given that the greatest benefits of fish oil come from the anti-inflammatory content, experts in omega-3 fish oil is also believed effective in preventing diseases caused by inflammation such as rheumatoid arthritis , osteoporosis, and so on.

Another benefit of fish oil is known is to maintain eye health, reduce the risk of rejection after heart and kidney transplantation, reducing the symptoms of depression, concentration problems, serious mental illness schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

Our bodies can not make omega-3, so as to obtain the required number we should mengasup foods containing omega-3 or supplements. In addition to fatty fish, omega-3 is also found in walnuts, canola oil, olive, flaxseed and soybeans.

Source of omega-3 ratio of plant origin from the animal remains the best. This is because fish oil has two essential amino acids, namely eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Although the source of vegetable origin only aplha-linolenic acid (ALA) fatty acids. Research shows the benefits of DHA and EPA is much greater than ALA.

Although natural sources, ie eating the fish directly, is considered better than supplements, but you should be aware of the possibility of mercury-contaminated fish or heavy metals.

To work around this problem, choose small fish such as sardines contain fewer toxins because they are in the food chain. The larger the fish, the greater the likelihood of contamination.

If you want to buy fish oil, choose products that are high quality and have a good reputation.
