the smart man’s cheat sheet

Sunny side up: eggs can help you sleep. Eat this Food for ZZZs Eating eggs for dinner could help you get a better night’s kip. Eggs are a good source of the amino acid tryptophan, which your body uses to make the hormone melatonin and the neurotransmitter serotonin – both of which help to prepare your body for sleep by chilling you out. Pair it with a banana for dessert – ’nanas are another good source of tryptophan, as well as magnesium and potassium, which can help relax your muscles.

we’re number 2

It’s not often that we like to come second to New Zealand, but in this case we’re happy to nab the silver. A new study by Dema.plus, the Skin Cancer Index 2018, has rated Australia second in the world for skin cancer susceptibility, with a skin cancer incidence score of 9.67. Our Kiwi cousins top the chart with a score of 10. Each year, more than 12,250 new melanoma cases are diagnosed here in Oz, and while you think you might be protecting yourself by smearing on some sunscreen, you might not be doing as much as you believe.

Exercise performed immediately after practising a new motor skill improves its long-term retention. 15-minute fix Want to learn how to nail a new motor skill, like walking a tightrope or balancing a case of beer on your head? A new study published in NeuroImage has found that exercise performed immediately after practising a new motor skill improves its long-term retention. More specifically, the research shows for the first time that as little as a single 15-minute bout of cardiovascular exercise increases brain connectivity and efficiency. This finding could help to accelerate recovery of motor skills in patients who’ve suffered a stroke or who face mobility problems following an injury. It could also potentially unleash a multitude of beer-balancing tightrope walkers across the land. Winning on both fronts. Sport…

Exercise doesn’t just make your heart healthier and your muscles stronger. It can also boost your gut health. So says new research from San Francisco State University, US, which found that people with the best cardiovascular fitness had a higher ratio of a type of bacteria known as firmicutes in their guts. While most gut bacteria can be beneficial, firmicutes bacteria are associated with metabolic by-products that help prevent bacteria in the gut from leaking into the body. ■…
