The Scoop On Finding A Healthy Plant-Based Protein Powder
Conclusion After completing this study, and factoring in the above, of all the plant based proteins I have tried, I would personally choose Nutiva's Plant Protein Superfood 30 Shake in either vanilla or chocolate as my top choice. For me it is obvious since Nutiva is actually certified organic, is at a great affordable price, low in sugars (and not stevia) and has a great taste. Serving suggestion: Add 2 tablespoons of Hempseeds to your shake for an extra 8g of Protein and 1.7g Omega-3.Consider the addition of 1 tablespoon of Nutiva Coconut Manna (ie coconut butter) and water to eliminate the need for buying cartons of al...

How Fast Is Your Dog Aging?
All of us who love dogs are acutely aware that the lifespans of our canine companions are short - much too short. And while the years we spend with a beloved pet seem to fly by, dogs don't just suddenly die when they reach a certain age. They grow older in stages just as we do, but at a tremendously accelerated rate compared to humans. Your four-legged friend may still look and act like a puppy much of the time, but there are age related changes taking place inside him despite his youthful good looks and high energy level. The lifespan of a dog depends primarily on his size, breed (or breed mix), and health status. As a g...

Can You Really Bottle Energy?
You see it almost everywhere these days — energy drinks that advertise the wonder of B vitamins. And they all claim to give you the energy boost to get you through your day. Sadly, it’s a big marketing ploy. The quick energy in these drinks usually comes from their high sugar and synthetic caffeine content. It’s true that B vitamins are essential to your body’s energy metabolism. And B12 in particular is crucial for energy. When you take in high-quality B12, you unlock the energy contained in the foods you eat and turn it into glucose you can burn. But fortified junk food is no way to get your vita...

And that’s why I think it’s essential to measure your telomeres. Telomeres are ...

5 Lessons Learned from Switching to a Vegetarian Diet

A healthy diet is the key to getting the iron you need
An article in this week’s Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) focuses on what happens to iron stores in the body after donating blood. As many as one-third of regular blood donors have too little iron in their bloodstreams. According to the article, it can take up to six months to replenish the body’s iron after donating a unit of blood—significantly longer than the recommended 8-week waiting period between deposits at the blood bank. The article made me wonder about the basics of iron health. How much of this stuff do we need? How do we get it? If you always feel pooped, how likely is &ldq...

How do NASA astronauts reverse extreme aging in space?
Did you know that your cardiovascular system ages ten times faster in space than it does on earth? We age faster in space because there’s more oxidative stress, more insulin resistance, and more inflammation. You even find significant damage to mitochondria, the energy producing centers of your cells. Astronauts also experience another form of extreme aging. The tiny biological clocks that determine how long and how well we age shorten much faster in space. These tiny timekeepers are called telomeres. The shorter they are. The more prone to disease and the effects of aging your body is. But if you can keep your telom...

Analysis of Proteome Dynamics in Mice by Isotopic Labeling
Recent advances in mass spectrometry and in vivo isotopic labeling have enabled proteome-wide analyses of protein turnover in complex organisms. Here, we describe a protocol for analyzing protein turnover rates in mouse tissues by comprehensive 15N labeling. The procedure involves the complete isotopic labeling of blue green algae (Spirulina platensis) with 15N and utilizing it as a source of dietary nitrogen for mice. We outline a detailed protocol for in-house production of 15N-labeled algae, labeling of mice, and analysis of isotope incorporation kinetics by mass spectrometry. The methodology can be adapted to analyze p...
