Keto for Bone Strength??

The metabolic state of ketosis produces a ketone body called Beta-Hydroxybutyrate or BHB for short. Studies show that living a ketogenic lifestyle and or supplementing with Exogenous BHB can help prevent the deterioration of bone density by stopping the production of cells called osteoclasts.  The body produces osteoblasts to build bone tissue and osteoclast to breakdown down tissue, which is a natural process within...

The ultimate anti-aging combination: TMG & NMN to live significantly longer?

Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) is currently one of the most exciting supplements in the anti-aging world.Its main function is its ability to increase Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) in our bodies.NAD+ is an extremely important coenzyme that is responsible for energy creation and cell functionality. It also facilitates a group of enzymes called sirtuins or “longevity genes”.Sirtuins can help reverse DNA damage and also help fight inflammation. Both of which are major contribu...

The Sleepy Path To Good Health

It is not simple to be healthy, a lot goes into keeping all the mind and body’s systems operating well.  It staggers me to think of the 10 trillion odd individual cells in our body all having to do a myriad of jobs, processes and reactions to function optimally and it’s doing all that without our conscious awareness. We truly are little miracles walking around. Very complex little miracles.One of the key pillars of good health though is good quality sleep. Too much emphasis I belie...
