Are mushrooms a “brain food”? Part 1
December 12, 2017
Dr. Robert Beelman, Professor Emeritus of Food Science and Director of the Penn State Center for Plant and Mushroom Products for Health, shares his latest research. A new study demonstrates that mushrooms are high in glutathione and ergothioneine, potent antioxidant compounds with anti-aging potential. In addition to these antioxidants, mushrooms are rich sources of fiber, vitamin D, as well as beta glucans, an important immune-enhancing polysaccharide. Dr. Beelman details research that suggests that consumption of ergothioneine confers protection against neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease and multiple sclerosis. Daily consumption of a handful of commercial button mushrooms can deliver these benefits. Do cooking methods impact the delivery of healthy mushroom compounds? Do mushrooms deserve the reputation that they are grown in manure? How best to store mushrooms? Are Shitake, porcini, oyster and lion’s mane mushrooms even more potent sources of ergothioneine? What’s “Brain Boost Bread”? Click HERE for part 2.

Leyla Weighs In
October 20, 2017
Nutritionist Leyla Muedin answers this listener question: I'm 77 years old and take melatonin at bedtime to fall asleep but wake up every two hours after that. I take 5-HTP during those times and closer to morning, L-theanine, so I can sleep until 7:30am. I read in medical journals that interrupted sleep can lead to dementia. What is your opinion about what I take for sleep?

Managing Your Memory, Part 1
October 10, 2017
"Seven Steps to Managing Your Memory: What’s Normal, What’s Not, and What to Do About It." "Why did I walk into this room?” “Where did I put my car keys?” “What’s my ATM password?” Memory problems are among the most common complaints seen in primary care. Harvard neurologist Dr. Andrew Budson is co-author of this practical guide to memory problems: Are we really experiencing an epidemic of dementia or are people just living longer? Do we have unrealistic expectations of our aging brains? When is memory loss normal and when is it a harbinger of dementia? Is Alzheimer’s the only type of memory loss? Can certain drugs produce memory loss? Are concerns over statin use warranted? Can proper diet defend against memory loss? What about exercise? Does research support the efficacy of “brain games”? What role for sleep optimization? Why is it so hard to come up with medicines for memory that have more than just slight, temporary benefits? When is it dementia and when is it depression? Should we all get tested for ApoE4, the “Alzheimer’s gene”? Why research shows that pulling an “all-nighter” is not the best way to study for a test; Simple habits that support memory.
