PUFA dangers Part 4: Influence on Cellular & Thyroid Function and Diabetes

Polyunsaturated fat (PUFAs), when incorporated into cell membranes, make cells more fluid, which makes them chaotropic, disorderly and reduces their function (1). The increase in fluidity will allow more water, sodium, chloride, and calcium into the cell (edema), and lower intracellular potassium and magnesium which will also destabilize the cell, and reduce cellular function (2). Metabolic … Continue reading PUFA dangers Part 4: Influence on Cellular & Thyroid Function and Diabetes

25 ways to increase androgen receptors and enhance potency (2018 update)

Androgens such as testosterone and DHT exert their beneficial action on the tissue by binding to androgen receptors. Testosterone and DHT are both anabolic to muscle and boosts muscle growth. A recent study found that, although androgens are needed for muscle growth, it is the androgen receptors that are essential for hypertrophy. There is a … Continue reading 25 ways to increase androgen receptors and enhance potency (2018 update)

Manganese – lowers ammonia, is pro-collagen, pro-steroidogenesis and boosts immunity

Manganese (Mn), named after the Greek word for “magic,” is one of 14 essential elements. Mn is found in all tissues in the body where it is required for normal amino acid, lipid, protein, carbohydrate metabolism and ATP generation. Mn also participates in blood clotting (assisting in keeping the blood the right viscosity), sugar homeostasis (stable … Continue reading Manganese – lowers ammonia, is pro-collagen, pro-steroidogenesis and boosts immunity
