How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy affects mitochondria
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) may help improve the health and function of mitochondria. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of cells, responsible for producing energy in the form of ATP, and they require oxygen to function properly. HBOT involves breathing in pure oxygen in a pressurized environment, which increases the amount of oxygen that reaches the cells, including the mitochondria.Studies have shown that HBOT can increase the oxygen supply to mitochondria, which can improve energy producti...March 23, 2023

Intermittent Fasting, Weight Loss and Berberine
Food gives us energy but not all food is equally beneficial for our bodies. When we are unwell, our bodies aren't functioning as they should, and we tend to pay close attention to what we consume. Once we feel well again, we may fall back into the habit of eating whatever is convenient and at whatever time is convenient. Sometimes, it is better to allow some time without food, giving our bodies time to use up the sugar and fats already present. Eating during a narrow interval every day is called...August 21, 2022

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...April 4, 2022

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...January 30, 2022

How fasting can clear out old, damaged cells and prevent needless ageingNew post
Growing evidence points to preventing cells from entering the senescent cycle as being one of the fundamental ways of fighting the ageing process. In our previous newsletter we look at exactly why our bodies turn to the senescent cycle. Now it’s time to explore the best ways to prevent senescence, and ways to clear out old, damaged senescent cells when they do occur. Some of the best ways to avoid the DNA damage that leads to cells entering the senescence cycle in the firs...June 3, 2021
