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

8 best ways to increase CO2 and gain its benefits

CO2 is a product of oxidative metabolism, as a result of the body metabolizing carbohydrates and fats to produce energy in the presence of oxygen. When oxygen is not present, carbohydrates are converted to lactate via anaerobic glycolysis. In some conditions, glucose is converted to lactate even in the presence of oxygen, as in the … Continue reading 8 best ways to increase CO2 and gain its benefits
