The Effect of Medium Chain Triglycerides on Time to Nutritional Ketosis and Symptoms of Keto-Induction in Healthy Adults

In recent years, medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) have hit the pop-culture food world. From a morning bullet coffee to very-low carbohydrate ketogenic diets, MCTs have become popular among people who follow a ketogenic diet for overall wellness or to address serious health issues, such as obesity and blood sugar disorders.Read moreThe Effect of Medium Chain Triglycerides on Time to Nutritional Ketosis and Symptoms of Keto-Induction in Healthy AdultsTo gain access

Omegas May Play a Role in Correcting Lipoprotein Patterns in Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome (MetSyn) is a multifaceted combination of cardiovascular disease risk factors and co-morbidities that include abdominal obesity, elevated triglycerides, mildly elevated blood pressure and fasting glucose, and low HDL-cholesterol.  Disagreements remain as to whether MetSyn risk factors act synergistically or independently. However the alterations in plasma triglycerides (TG) and cholesterol define the risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Beyond diet and exercise changes, the primary method to reduce cardio risk

Diabetes is Five Different Diseases, Concludes a Lancet Study

Diabetes is five diseases, concludes a new study. By separating adult-onset diabetes cases into five different types, rather than just type 1 or type 2, physicians can better tailor early treatment for patients, and could represent a first step towards precision medicine in the disease, according to an analysis of patients with adult-onset diabetes in Sweden and Finland published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology journal. The five types of

Stevia. Is it Nature’s Secret to Metabolic Syndrome?

Stevia rebaudiana (SR), a popular calorie-free sweetener, may possess more health properties than originally thought, namely reducing the factors associated with metabolic syndrome. According to a new study, “Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni: A Natural Alternative for Treating Diseases Associated with Metabolic Syndrome,” published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, both in vitro and in vivo studies indicate that glycosides and the extracts from stevia may have pharmacological and therapeutic properties for health

Fasting Mimicking Trial Shows Promise for Chronic Disease Reduction

Fasting is more than a popular diet fad, according to a recently released University of Southern California Davis study. A five-day fast once a month could reduce one’s risk of life threatening diseases and result in weight loss. For 71 adults, participating in a fasting-mimicking” phase II trial at the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, a low calorie diet reduced cardiovascular risk factors including blood pressure, signs of inflammation

Personalized Nutrition and Metabolic Response

As you sit down to a dinner with family and friends you can learn a lot about the unique aspects of your tablemates’ metabolic response. Uncle Joe’s blood sugar may rise more from mashed potatoes than from Aunt Sue’s apple pie. But for your own blood sugar, the results could be quite the opposite. Research at the Weizmann Institute study published in the journal Cell, shows that people respond very
