Injections Of This New Hormone May Make You Horny Again

Every day, an estimated 6,800 new peer-reviewed academic articles are published. That’s a whole lot of science to wade through – but don’t fret. We’ll do the legwork for you, each and every morning. Here’s your daily dose of the latest discoveries from journals, research institutions, and news outlets from around the world. 

 

Boost Your Libido

Good news for guys struggling with low sex drive: Injections of a hormone called kisspeptin may jumpstart your lagging libido, scientists from the U.K. say. The researchers discovered that injecting the newly-discovered, naturally-occurring hormone stimulated areas of the brain typically activated by sexual arousal and romance. Research is still preliminary, but it’s possible the findings may one day be used to treat men with psychological sexual problems – commonly occurring in those struggling with infertility.

Fecal transplants – where stool from a healthy donor is transferred to a sick patient – have been used to treat severe, recurring diarrhea that results as a complication of antibiotic therapy. Now, it may have another use: A small study from the Ohio State University found that children with autism who received fecal transplants experienced an improvement in autism-related symptoms and gastrointestinal symptoms. Larger, more rigorous studies must be done to confirm the results before it can be used clinically, the researchers say.

 

Sleep Well

Think your sleep sucks? It might, especially if you’re not hitting the determinants of quality sleep, as established by a panel of sleep experts. The key factors related to good sleep are: sleeping more than 85 per cent of the time you’re in bed, falling asleep within 30 minutes or less, waking up no more than once per night, and awakening for 20 minutes or less after initially falling asleep, according to the National Sleep Foundation. 

 

Reverse Memory Loss?

Turn up the radio: Music may help reverse early memory loss, according to a new study in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. After adults with subjective cognitive decline – a possible preclinical sign of Alzheimer’s – completed either a beginner meditation or music-listening program for 12 minutes a day for 12 weeks, they showed significant improvements in memory function.
