A New Product for the Gut Health of Special Needs Children

Gut Health of Special Needs childrenFor the last 2 years we’ve been waiting for a new natural, nutritional formulation to help children with special needs. It has now been developed and it’s called Teknon, which means “child” in ancient Greek.

Teknon has been used in a trial in Dubai with many children and improvements were seen in digestion, sleep patterns, cognition, social communication skills, and behavior.

I am very excited to let you know that Teknon is now available in the US.

There is a webinar where John Payne, CEO of Purelife Health Sciences Group, speaks with Amal Tolba, Founder and Director of the Hope Abilitation and Medical Center in Dubai. John provides the science behind the development of Teknon and 2 success stories from US children it has helped.

This video already has almost 12,000 views on YouTube as there are so many parents around the world trying to help their special needs child.

Can’t Stay Asleep? Study Findings Say “Eat More Fruits + Veggies”

Fruits and vegetables for sleep.According to experts, healthy adults should sleep between seven and nine hours per night. After noticing a rise in people with insomnia and those getting too little sleep, researchers in Finland examined the correlation between fruit and vegetable consumption and its impact on sleep—revealing a strong association.

For their study, researchers looked at data from 5,043 adults aged 18 and older participating in the National FinHealth 2017 Study. For the study, participants shared their sleep duration and dietary intake of fruits and vegetables. The researchers also looked at other factors such as socioeconomic status and demographics. They also used a sensitivity analysis to exclude “energy under-reporters” to remove that variable.

The researchers compared the average amount of fruits and vegetables eaten by people with different sleep durations—short sleepers (averaging 6 hours per night), normal (averaging 7.7 hours per night), and long (averaging 10.1 hours per night). They found that short sleepers consumed 37 fewer grams of fruits and vegetables a day than normal sleepers and long sleepers consumed 73 grams less per day. Plus, that correlation held true with a variety of statistical models.

Given the strong link between fruit and vegetable consumption and sleep duration, the researchers emphasized the importance of looking at lifestyle variables when treating sleep disorders. They also recommend focusing on the fruit and vegetable groups with the strongest association, such as leafy greens.
