    No evidence for rate-of-living theory of aging

    Just a quick post, since this topic dominates anti-aging research - i.e. despite lack of concrete evidence for it, mainstream research (and finding agencies) continue to claim that longevity is tied to metabolism, but in an inverse relationship. The study below is on turtles - one of the longest...

    Tissue minerals of magnesium-deficient rats with thiamine deficiency and excess

    Abstract To clarify the influence of thiamine deficiency or a dietary excess of thiamine on the mineral balance in magnesium-deficient animals, the following six different synthetic diets were fed to Wistar rats. Group 1: thiamine and magnesium-deficient; group 2: thiamine-deficient...

    BOMBSHELL: Serotonin High in Depression, Not a "Happy" Chemical, Lowers Energy, Depression Self-Resolves

    When I first saw the article pop up in my feed, I could hardly believe my eyes that a mainstream mouthpiece of Big Pharma will publish such frank admission of psychiatry's utter failure - i.e. the claims in regards to serotonin (5-HT), its role in mental illness, and even its social "label". In...

    SHBG may be a good test for liver (metabolic) health

    A very good study, which probably runs counter to the "mantra" most bodybuilders adhere to - i.e. they would say one must keep their SHBG low in order to increase levels of "free" steroids since, the claim goes, only free steroids are active and capable of influencing cells. If SHBG is high, the...

    Hypogonadism in older males due to low OXPHOS

    I suspect many readers will simply say "duh!", but believe or not the origin of age-related hypogonadism in males is still considered unknown. Most endocrinologists have discovered experimentally that treating their patients with SERM or AI drugs restores androgens to youthful levels, but the...

    Metabolic-friendly doctors/physicians, doing remote consultations

    There is a forum member, who is a doctor (MD), and seems open to accepting new patients too (including remote). If he is who I think he is, I have interacted with him over email for the last ~2 years and he is a great guy...

    Stem cells availability, and their differentiation, depend on metabolism

    Once again, the master controller role metabolism plays in human life is revealed in yet another experiment. The study below demonstrated that the degree of cell "stemness", as well as its differentiation into a specific organ/tissue depends entirely on the metabolic rate of the cell, and thus...

    PUFA cause obesity, diabetes, autism, Alzheimer's disease, anxiety, and depression

    The title is an actual quote from the article, so there is no editorializing on my part and it speaks volumes about how the authors feel about their findings. In addition, opposite effects were found for saturated fats, in this case coconut oil, which leads the authors to once again remind...

    Aging and disease are the same process, driven by low metabolism

    I am posting about this mostly due to its "told you so" factor - i.e. more and more professionals in the medical and research fields are starting to realize that the super-specialized approach to treating chronic diseases has not produced any substantial results. In addition, the correlation...

    Tingly toes after exercise, but not with carbs

    Something I've noticed. After doing yardwork, my toes get tingly. This is the case when I haven't eaten carbs. However, I don't feel exhausted. I also am able to do only a tiny amount of work. If I've eaten carbs and then do the work, I don't get the tingles. Instead I'll get exhausted...

    Spaceflight Wreaks Havoc on Liver Metabolism

    A group of researchers led by the University of Tsukuba investigated the effects of the space environment on liver damage and discovered that gene expression in the liver is modified by space leading to greater oxidative stress. Tsukuba, Japan—The latest findings of a series of studies on mice...

    "Reductive" stress harms cells, mitochondria protect by increasing metabolism

    Finally a study that provide me with some "ammo" during my arguments with people I know who work in the medical profession. A common topic in such arguments is the mainstream medical idea that it is almost impossible to have too much antioxidants and too little oxidation. In fact, to many...

    What makes the left and right ear temperatures different throughout the day?

    I have an accurate ear thermometer, the one from Braun, and the measurements from left to right ears are mostly different. When I feel like I'm having good metabolism, the measurements tend to be closer. So far the two theories that I have are: - Peat quote from an email he sent me: I have...

    What is a desired body temperature when you go to sleep?

    We talk a lot about what the basal temperature should be (97.9F), but how about the temperature when you go to sleep (bedtime)? I get good temps when I wake up and throughout the day, but I haven't been able to confirm if my body temperature when I go to sleep is good. Thank you!

    IdeaLabs Service - Mineral Analysis (hair and/or (toe)nail)

    EDIT (05/20/2022): We have been receiving many questions about the difference in ranges for hair and nail results. As mentioned in the main post below, nails absorb more nutrients from the body and as such their ranges are often several-fold higher than the ranges for hair (for a specific...

    Theory on Metabolism, regarding various training methods

    We have all been told that our bodies adapt to the stimulus we put on it right? Well here's some food for thought on that subject. Take weight lifting for example. After doing the bench press, your body will adapt in various ways, in order to make your chest stronger, making you more efficient...

    Ability to wake up early in the morning as a sign of high metabolism

    I was discussing with a female coworker various topics and she mentioned how she woke up at 6am that day and was very productive. We are both late 20s / early 30s age bracket. In contrast, I find it very hard to wake up at 6am, I barely can get myself to wake up at 8/9, as I work from home. And...

    Does Peating (over-time) decrease the size of your stomach by increasing the size of your brain - changing your food tolerance (fruit/starch)

    I was reading this from "The Expensive-Tissue Hypothesis: The Brain and the Digestive System in Human and Primate Evolution": I noted the following as extremely relevant : "Gut Size is highly correlated with diet, and relatively small guts are compatible only with high-quality...

    Is standing next to your car's brake lights a great way to boost metabolism on the go or in an emergency ?

    I notice i get a great boost in metabolism standing next to a car's brake lights - It's just regular red lights or is it a non-red light and the glass is tinted red ? I know the glass or plastic tends to be tinted red but i seem to get a metabolic boost from standing next to it so is the...

    Is there a significant effect on the metabolism just by being around specific people ?

    I've been noticing a couple of things lately - I notice that before peating when my health was bad - I really enjoyed being around metabolically healthy people and especially that is true today - It made me feel very comfortable - as we know from this forum anything can be anything so there must...
