Skin Health and Omegas - The Real Story

Posted on 10/17/2018 by Pure Life Science

I have been asked to comment on why the Pure Form Omega® formulation works so well on skin. The answer is pretty straight forward if you understand the biochemistry of the skin and the implications are quite powerful.

There is almost no Omega-3 in the skin! Cultured skin cells grow normally when given 18 carbon Omega-6 but when supplied with Omega-3, they have uncontrolled growth i.e. cancer. It has been shown that countries that have the highest fish oil consumption (too much Omega-3) have the highest rates of skin cancer!

Concussion Prevention in Sports

Posted on 9/25/2018 by Pure Life Science

Hockey and football season is upon us, and as usual, concussions occur more often. There is tremendous pressure on kids and young adults to return from concussions too early. The old standard of “wake them up every 2 hours” is not good advice. In fact, the full impact of a concussion may not be apparent for 3 months! Was this always the case? Could you keep your kid out of sport for 3 months after every hit to the head? It would kill sports!

Why the Pure Form Omega Formulation Works

Posted on 9/23/2018 by Pure Life Science

Fish Oil starves muscles of essential fuel making you less effective in the gym—the OPPOSITE of what is required for success! Know that this is counter to what many of you are currently using and believe. There is very good evidence behind this statement. British Medical Journal of Nutrition (2003), 90, 777-786 published, “Fish-oil supplementation reduces stimulation of plasma glucose fluxes during exercise in untrained males”.

The Verdict Is In, Fish Oils Do Not Work for Heart Disease!

Posted on 9/18/2018 by Pure Life Science

It’s official, the world’s leading scientific authority, Cochrane, has done a review of cardiovascular health and fish oils and found, as predicted, that fish oils do not work clinically for prevention of heart disease. Now this was predicted because use of fish oil contradicts known biochemistry and membrane physiology of human cells. The fact that there is no Omega-3 in the intima of arteries, that Omega-6 has the same oxygen dissociation curve as hemoglobin, that mitochondrial membranes are almost entirely made up of Omega-6 seems lost on the entire scientific community (save a very select few).

Can You Trust What Your Doctor Says About Nutrition?

Posted on 8/25/2018 by Pure Life Science

It’s very interesting to see “ask your doctor” when looking at supplements. One must understand that most physicians (like me) only received 45 minutes of lecturing on nutrition out of 4 years of medical school. They also get very little education in statistics. Then they are released unto the world knowing about which drugs to treat which conditions and how to do some procedures but expected to weigh in and give advice on subjects they actually have very little knowledge. They get Pharma-backed education and have a plethora of medical magazines thrown at them full of questionable science, so what ends up happening is that they say, “Just eat a well-balanced diet”

What are Essential Fatty Acids

Posted on 7/27/2018 by

Well it’s interesting that there are only 2 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) yet other fatty acids are being labeled as essential. Essential means that it can only be derived from your diet and the body cannot synthesize them. Our body can make all other fatty acids that we need from these 2 Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s).
