Dear Valued Subscriber,    


Did you know that according to a study in Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, people consuming cocktails made with artificial sweeteners had breath alcohol concentrations that were 18 percent higher than those imbibing regular mixers - and were less aware that they were becoming impaired?


NCI Well Connect Subscribers:

We have updated our Natural Foods Shopping List, which contains foods free of additives, preservatives, chemicals, and trans fats. In addition, many items are gluten-free and kosher.


Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


Does This B-Vitamin Mimic Exercise?

Vitamin B3 -- also known as niacin -- and its metabolite nicotinamide added to roundworms' diet caused them to live for about one tenth longer than usual. As an international team of researchers headed by Michael Ristow has now experimentally demonstrated, niacin and nicotinamide take effect by promoting formation of so-called free radicals. He is convinced that small amounts of reactive oxygen species and the oxidative stress they trigger have a health-promoting impact.


In earlier studies on humans, Ristow demonstrated that the health-enhancing effect of endurance sports is mediated via an increased formation of reactive oxygen species -- and that antioxidants abolish this effect. Based on the present study, he concludes that niacin brings about a similar metabolic condition to exercise. "Niacin tricks the body into believing that it is exercising -- even when this is not the case," says Ristow. Such compounds are known as "exercise mimetics."


The roundworm, which is merely one millimeter in length, can be easily maintained and has a lifespan of only a month, making it the ideal model organism for aging research. The results of the study are of relevance to humans because the metabolic pathway initiated by niacin is very similar in roundworms and higher organisms.


The study is based on a particular class of enzymes, sirtuins, which convert niacin into nicotinamide. Genetically modified roundworms that were unable to convert nicotinamide into certain other metabolic products, did not show any lifespan extension, even after overexpression of sirtuins, which otherwise lead to an increased life expectancy. Undoubtedly, some humans will also have a genetic conversion problem, as they do with folic acid. Targeting these individuals may help them live longer.
