Fit athletes derive more benefit from testosterone boosters Cordyceps sinensis and Ganoderma lucidum

Extracts from the mushrooms Cordyceps sinensis and Ganoderma lucidum boost athletes' testosterone levels. And they lower cortisol levels too. The fitter athletes are, the stronger the positive effect of the extracts, researchers at the University of Pavia in Italy discovered when they gave Cordyceps sinensis and Ganoderma lucidum to seven cyclists.

Study
The researchers gave seven amateur cyclists, aged 30-40, a placebo for a couple of weeks and capsules containing extracts of Cordyceps sinensis and Ganoderma lucidum for three months. During both periods the cyclists took part in an 85-km cycling race.

The cyclists took three capsules a day, each containing 445 mg Cordyceps sinensis. The capsules consisted of one third polysaccharides and half a percent of adenosine. In addition, the capsules contained the adenosine analogue cordycepin. Adenosine and cordycepin probably both play a role in the ergogenic effect of Cordyceps sinensis. Three days before each of the races, the cyclists increased their intake to six capsules a day.

How Ginseng boosts athletes' endurance capacity


Sports scientists at Konkuk University in South Korea have discovered how Ginseng supplementation may be able to improve the endurance capacity of runners, cyclists and other endurance athletes. Ginseng boosts fat burning in the first twenty minutes of endurance activities thus saving valuable carbohydrates. The Koreans did experiments with mice.

Ginseng
The most important active ingredients in Ginseng are ginsenosides, shown below. They all have different characteristics. Ginsenoside-Rg 1 for example has an anticatabolic, stimulatory and anti-oestrogenic effect, while ginsenoside-Rb 1 has a sedative effect.

Study
The researchers were curious to know whether Asian Ginseng would improve sports performance, so they got male mice to train on a treadmill five times a week for a period of two weeks. The mice had to run at 65-70 percent of their maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max).

Abstract

PURPOSE:

Red ginseng (RG) has been reported to improve the blood and organ lipid profile when combined with exercise. However, the effect of RG on energy metabolism during exercise is poorly understood. Therefore, this study was designed to investigate whether RG treatment alters fat utilization during exercise;

METHODS:

We used seven-week-old ICR mice (n = 42). RG (1 g/kg) was administered orally daily during two weeks of endurance training. All mice were randomized into two groups: training only group (CON group) and training with RG group (RG group). Endurance training consisted of 20~25 m/min on a slope of 8° for one hour five times a week. After a two-week experimental period, we measured substrate utilization during exercise at the same intensity and duration of training using a respiratory calorimetry chamber. Mice were dissected for glycogen measurement of muscles and liver before, immediately after, and one hour after the exercise;

RESULT:

Fat oxidation during the initial 20 min of the one-hour exercise significantly increased in the RG group compared to the CON group. In addition, the liver glycogen stores significantly decreased immediately after the one-hour exercise compared to at rest in the RG group, but did not differ between immediately after the one-hour exercise and at rest in the RG group. The glycogen concentration in white and red gastrocnemius muscle did not differ between the groups immediately after the one-hour exercise;

CONCLUSIONS:

These results suggest that RG treatment for two weeks promotes fat oxidation and a glycogen-sparing effect during exercise. This might lead to a delay in peripheral fatigue during endurance exercise performance.

Lose weight with Pu-Erh tea

Pu-Erh tea really works: extracts from this Chinese tea promote weight loss. Japanese researchers at Fukuoka University have demonstrated the slimming effects of Pu-Erh tea in a human study, published in Nutrition.

From: Ergo-log

Pu-Erh
Pu-Erh tea comes from the Yunnan highlands of China. It is black tea that is created by drying green tea leaves at a high temperature and then fermenting them in a humid environment using Aspergillus niger. Pu-Erh tea contains relatively high amounts of gallic acid [structural formula shown below].



Water-based Pu-Erh extracts consist for about three percents of this phenol, and researchers suspect that gallic acid is the most active ingredient in Pu-Erh tea. The compound reduces the production of the enzyme lipase by the pancreas, and as a result Pu-Erh tea inhibits the absorption of fat, in animal studies. [Phytother Res. 2008 Oct;22(10):1275-81.] Another possible mechanism is that Pu-Erh extracts block the enzyme that converts nutrients into fat in the liver. [Oncol Res. 2005;16 (3):119-28.]

Acupuncture Offers No Benefits Over Placebo for Hot Flashes of Menopause

By Nicholas Bakalar January 21, 2016 5:45 am January 21, 2016 5:45 am
New York Times

Acupuncture is no more effective for menopausal hot flashes than a sham version of the procedure, a randomized trial has found.

Researchers studied 327 menopausal women over 40 who had hot flashes at least seven times a day.

Over eight weeks, they gave half the women standardized Chinese medicine acupuncture procedures.

The other half received a sham treatment using a blunt needle with a technique that gives the physical and visual impression of genuine acupuncture but does not penetrate the skin.

Researchers “inserted” the needles at three sites that were not acupuncture points.

The study, in Annals of Internal Medicine, included 10 treatments over eight weeks. At the start of the study, and periodically over the next six months, the women used diaries to record the intensity and frequency of their hot flashes.

There was some improvement in symptoms in both groups, but there were no differences between the groups in severity or frequency of hot flashes, or in secondary outcomes for menopause-specific quality of life, anxiety and depression.

“Acupuncture has been shown to be more effective than placebo for a number of conditions, specifically chronic pain,” said the lead author, Dr. Carolyn Ee, a family physician trained in both Western and Chinese medicine. “To say that it doesn’t work for hot flashes is not the same as saying it doesn’t work.”

East meets West to create 'world's first' catalogue of genomic references for TCM products

By Gary Scattergood+, 17-Mar-2017

A new project has been launched to create the ‘world’s first’ catalogue of genomic references for medicinal plants used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Experts in TCM help battle drug resistance

By SHAN JUAN | chinadaily.com.cn | Updated: 2017-03-20 03:34

China has recruited a team of specialists in traditional Chinese medicine, including China's first Nobel laureate in medicine, Tu Youyou, to help find solutions to the rising threat of antimicrobial resistance.

AMR happens when microbes evolve to become resistant to previously effective medicines. Studies show the growth in resistance could be responsible for 10 million deaths a year worldwide by 2050, according to the Review on AMR, a global report commissioned by the British government.

Antimicrobials are medicines active against a range of infections, such as those caused by bacteria (antibiotics), viruses (antivirals), fungi (antifungals) and parasites (including antimalarials), the report explains.

Western medicine is struggling to combat the problem, while the overuse of antibiotics and other antimicrobials is worsening the situation, said Cao Hongxin, head of science and technology at the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

He said the Chinese team, led by Wang Guoqiang, vice-minister of the National Health and Family Planning Commission, will look into how TCM can be used as part of a comprehensive and dynamic approach to halt the progress of AMR.

"Traditional Chinese remedies are free from drug resistance and could provide alternative solutions," Cao said, adding that TCM works to kill harmful microbes, reduce their replication, as well as to enhance immunity.

Tu Youyou, the pharmacologist who won the Nobel Prize in 2015, discovered artemisinin, an antimalarial drug derived from sweet wormwood, which has been used in TCM since ancient times. She has worked with China's top TCM research institute for decades.

Huang Liuyu, director of the People's Liberation Army's Institute for Disease Prevention and Control, praised the efforts to develop more TCM remedies that work on infections. "TCM substitutes can lower the use of antibiotics and thereby delay the development of antibiotic-resistant microorganisms," he said.

Traditional treatments are more complicated in terms of ingredients and are less likely to develop drug resistance, he said, although he added, "It's usually antibiotics from Western medicine that work stronger and faster in curbing bacteria without drug resistance."

Huang said AMR occurs naturally over the time through genetic mutations but overuse of antimicrobials speeds up the process.

Half of the antibiotics used worldwide each year are used in China, with 52 percent of that used to treat livestock, according to the Review on AMR.
