Yet another study demonstrating that "aging" is nothing but a phenotype characterizing an organism with declining energy production. Since most of the cellular energy is produced in the mitochondria, another way of stating the same is that aging (and any specific disease for that matter) is a...
Since there are so many discussions and confusion on this forum around omega 3s, I thought I do a deep dive and write this article.
If there are so many studies showing that it's good and has so many benefits, how can it be bad...
As we all know, PUFAs are a metabolic toxin. One of the mechanisms how a high fat diet promotes obesity and metabolic syndrome is by remodeling cardiolipin. Cardiolipin is a unique mitochondrial phospholipid that contains 4 fatty acids. Its main goal is to stabilize the complexes of the electron...
One of the key features of aging is the decline in mitochondrial function (metabolism), and that fact is widely recognized even by mainstream medicine. However, doctors still claim that the relationship between metabolic decline and aging has not be elucidated and a causative link cannot be...
I posted a study several months ago on the ability of inosine to prevent/reverse liver disease, and how liver damage caused by various toxins was due to lower ATP levels in the liver. Inosine, being both a metabolite and precursor of ATP, is able to restore ATP levels and as such to...
Comparative effects of high oleic acid vs high mixed saturated fatty acid obesogenic diets upon PUFA metabolism in mice. - PubMed - NCBI
Emerging evidence indicates that the fatty acid composition of obesogenic diets influences physiologic outcomes. There are scant data regarding how...
I posted a few threads recently on the negative effects of acetaminophen (Tylenol) on brain function and steroid response.
Acetaminophen (Tylenol) Exposure During Pregnancy Feminizes The Offspring
Acetaminophen raises serotonin/adrenaline, aspirin lowers it
User @Koveras also posted a thread...
Ray has written extensively about the mitochondria and its crucial role in health. The structure and contents of the mitochondria undergo extensive change as part of the aging process and one of the most important constituents of mitochondria is the lipid cardiolipin (CL). CL is crucial for the...
