DISCOVERY: Gut-Brain Vagus Nerve Study Shows Nerve Cells Detect What We Eat

Though we know about the importance of sensory neurons in gut-brain communication and how this relates to satiety and blood glucose regulation, just how these cells actually participate in the regulation of feeding and blood glucose levels was an unknown. New mice research, published in Cell Metabolism, sheds light on how the vagus nerve, gut and brain communicate with each other in order to adapt satiety and blood sugar levels

Early Animal Study Shows Selenium May Support Healthspan and Metabolic Health Benefits

Adding the nutrient selenium may support healthspan and metabolic health such as protecting against obesity, so says a mouse study published in eLife. The results could lead to interventions that reproduce many of the anti-aging effects associated with dietary restriction while also allowing people to eat as normal. One of the proven methods of increasing healthspan in many organisms, including non-human mammals, is to restrict dietary intake of an amino

PCOS DISCOVERIES: Men with Genetic Risk Factors & Black Women at Greater Odds for Cardiometabolic Diseases

Two new studies presented at the annual ENDO 2021 meeting (March 20-23), the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting, provides valuable insight into polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The first study found that men with the genetic risk factors for PCOS can develop the same characteristics of the disease. This surprising study leads researchers to believe that, despite the name of the disease, the primary cause of PCOS may not be the ovaries.

DISCOVERY: Nature Med Gut Study Connects Microbes with Biomarkers of Disease

DISCOVERY: Nature Med Study Connects Gut Microbes with Biomarkers of Disease

A large-scale international study using metagenomics and blood chemical profiling discovered a panel of 15 gut microbes that are closely associated with lower risks of common conditions such as obesity and type 2 diabetes. Some of the identified gut microbes are so novel that they have not yet been named. The study just gave personalized medicine a big step forward because this study peels away the layers of the microbiome

Bursts of Exercise Are Enough to Lead to Significant Improvements of Metabolic Health

Short bursts of exercise induce changes in the body’s levels of metabolites that correlate to, and may help gauge, an individual’s cardiometabolic, cardiovascular and long-term health, a study by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) has found. In a paper published in Circulation, the research team describes how approximately 12 minutes of acute cardiopulmonary exercise impacted more than 80% of circulating metabolites, including pathways linked to a wide range of favorable health

Very Low-Carbohydrate Diet in Older Adults Dramatically Improves Metabolic Health

What is the value of very low carbohydrate diets? A new study, published in Nutrition and Metabolism, from researchers with the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Nutrition Obesity Research Center observed improvements in body composition, fat distribution and metabolic health in response to an eight-week, very low-carbohydrate diet. Very Low-Carbohydrate Diet The diet emphasized low-glycemic sources of carbohydrate, and included mainly whole foods such as: leafy greens, non-starchy vegetables, some

The Influence of the Microbiome on Metabolism

Featuring the MetabolicBiome™ Plus Program Join Dr. Alex Vasquez as he embarks on a journey to redefine metabolic health and weight loss to include dietary and metabolic insults, microbial imbalance and an increased toxic load. In this webinar, Dr. Vasquez explains the integral relationships between the gut microbiome, inflammatory status and metabolic function and how implementing the MetabolicBiome™ Plus kits into your practice can foster optimal clinical results for your patients.
