Melatonin –a natural hormone produced by the body– helps in controlling weight gain

University of Granada researchers have proven that melatonin –a natural hormone produced by the body– helps in controlling weight gain –even without reducing the intake of food–, improves blood lipid profile –as it reduces triglicerids–, increases HDL cholesterol and reduces LDL cholesterol. Melatonin is found in small quantities in some fruits and vegetables as mustard,… Seguir Leyendo Melatonin –a natural hormone produced by the body– helps in controlling weight gain

Spanish and US scientists develop a new technique that allows certain objects to be invisible to the human eye

– They have used a simulated layer system with the Transmission Line Matrix (TLM) Modelling method, which is able to hide, in certain frequencies, the objects placed in an electromagnetic simulator. Such studies are the germ to achieve invisibility to radars or even to the human eye.– This research work has been carried out by… Seguir Leyendo Spanish and US scientists develop a new technique that allows certain objects to be invisible to the human eye
