Changing conclusions or recommendations in the light of new evidence is the beauty of science.  It says that there is no pride lost in saying “we were wrong”, and “we’ll go wherever the data takes us”. 

One of the latest swings in recommendations over the past few years has been the link between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol, with eggs being the highly scrutinised food at the forefront of this debate.

Kyolic garlic is a form of Aged Garlic Extract (AGE) produced by the Wakunaga Pharmaceutical Company, using organic garlic that has been naturally aged for 20 months, rather than heat treating the garlic. Doing this allows the enzymes found in garlic, like alliinase, to react and fully oxidise compounds like alliin and allicin into other related sulphur-containing compounds.

I wouldn’t hesitate to guess that the vast majority of you reading this have struggled to shift body fat at some point in your life.  There’s good reason for this.  Your body simply doesn’t want to burn fat.  It is programmed to survive.  For example, we know that when body fat starts to drop, circulating levels of hormones involved in homeostatic regulation of body weight start to change [1, 2].  This may be one of the primary reasons behind the high chance of weight regain following diet-induced weight-loss.  It’s also party responsible for the ridiculous cravings that come with any calorie restricted diet. 

The barriers don’t end there.  There are several factors that can hinder fat loss, or alter your mind state and reduce your ability to stick to your diet.  Here are six of them:

A superfoods powder can bring about many benefits, other than providing a convenient source of vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients, and amino acids that can improve the nutritional density of a diet. Using common ingredients like wheat grass, barley grass, spirulina and chlorella amongst a litany of other potential ingredients including algae’s, vegetables, fruits, herbs and spices. These may come in individual powders or blended formulas. When talking to a customer about greens powders and superfoods alike, a very common question that I hear is:

“But… how does it taste? I can’t drink anything that tastes like grass!”

It was once thought that vitamin K1 and vitamin K2 had the same physiological function (primarily blood clotting) and that vitamin K2 intake wasn’t too important due to the fact that the body could convert K1 into K2. However, new research is revealing that both of these assumptions were false and both types of vitamin K have very different functions in the body. Further to this, it has also been found that vitamin K2 intake is considerably low in the modern diet. Here are some very important things you need to know about vitamin K2.Read More

As I was writing another article specifically on Magnesium, I came across a great article regarding magnesium absorption. So really I need to give some credit to Jackie Burgess from afibbers.org. I’d like to draw on some points that she makes, take them and outline how the supplements that you are taking may be affected by these factors. This may raise some awareness and ideas that will in fact improve your supplement regime and get more out of what you’re putting in.Read More
