At one time the only measure of blood fats a doctor would look at was total cholesterol. This expanded to include different forms of cholesterol including another type of fat called triglycerides.

Now, it looks like yet another blood fat marker will be added to the list and may possibly replace some of the others. Not only is this marker believed to be a far more accurate predictor of heart disease, but a new study shows elevated levels will lead to an early grave.

This marker is called apolipoprotein B.

Since cholesterol is […]

Described as a potential “game-changer for human health”, a recently discovered molecule is improving muscle strength, improving symptoms of neurological disease and boosting the lifespan of sick laboratory animals by over 40 percent.

Researchers believe it works by supercharging your cells’ mitochondria, and in the process, is helping solve one of the root causes of aging.

This molecule is called Urolithin A and it’s a metabolite— or a compound produced as a result of the digestion of nutrients called ellagitannins, which are prevalent in foods like pomegranate.

Researchers believe Urolithin A has the power to rejuvenate aging mitochondria, by boosting a process called […]
