Dear Valued Subscriber,  


Did you know that streptococcus salivarius is a type of beneficial bacteria in the upper respiratory tract and oral cavity? Chewing or sucking on a lozenge with this probiotic colonizes the mouth, nose, and nasopharynx, crowing out pathogenic bacteria. It can prevent plaque, cavities, bad breath, ear infections, sore throats, colds, coughs, postnasal drip, and other sinus problems.


Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


Advances in Understanding the Impact of Sleep.
sleep2Lack of sleep, already considered a public health epidemic, can also lead to errors in memory, finds a new study inPsychological Science.


Studies have shown that when people don't get enough sleep they:

  • Have increased levels of a hunger hormone called ghrelin and decreased levels of the satiety/fullness hormone called leptin, which could lead to overeating and weight gain.
  • Consume about 300 calories a day more than when they are well-rested. Overall, most of the extra calories came from high-fat foods.
  • Snack more and do less physical activity.
  • Eat more than what is needed to cover the energy cost of staying awake longer, especially at night, which can lead to significant weight gain.

A recent study discovered that participants who didn't get enough sleep for five days consumed more carbohydrates and gained nearly 2 pounds in that time.


So how much sleep do you really need?


Seven hours, 7.2 to be exact, is the optimal amount of sleep - not eight, as was long believed - when it comes to certain cognitive and health markers.


Even skimping on a full night's sleep, even by 20 minutes, impairs performance and memory the next day. And getting too much sleep - not just too little of it - is associated with health problems including diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease and with higher rates of death.
