Cellular Oxygen Transport - The Real Story

Posted on 7/11/2018 by

Well, after a fairly exhaustive search, it is remarkable how little is published on this subject. All the papers I have read assume that the rate of oxygen crossing a cell membrane is not a rate-limiting step. There are very few papers that even try to measure that rate.

Wound Care in the 21st Century

Posted on 7/8/2018 by Pure Life Science

A recent article published by Medical Xpress commented on the explosion of hyperbaric oxygen centers in the US, mostly based on financial returns and very little scientific validity. Medicare pays up to $9000 for 20 sessions for chronic, non-healing wounds and most times it fails or only gives temporary results. When the treatment stops, the wounds recur. Why is this?

Pure Form Omega and Heart Health

Posted on 6/16/2018 by Pure Life Science

Here is a little known fact. What do you think the heart prefers for energy? Well its fats! Not sugar or carbohydrates. At least 65% of the energy your heart uses must be derived from fats. If good quality fats are not available, such as in today’s Standard American Diet (SAD diet), you will end up with issues that compromise your heart function such as Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). Someone with CHF is 50% likely to be dead within 5 years. That is as bad as most cancers. There are 6 million Americans with CHF and 550,000 more diagnosed every year. Almost all of it is preventable.

The Difference Between Pure Form Omega and Other Plant Based Oils: Borage Oil

Posted on 6/11/2018 by Pure Life Science

When supplementing with what we know as proper Omega-6 and -3 products from plants, the source does make a difference. Plants all contain the proper fatty acids but we cannot absorb them from all plants. I have to thank Dr. Paul Beatty for his insight into this issue. To be sure, there are other plant-based oils to choose from. Why are we any better?

Work With, Not Against Mother Nature

Posted on 6/4/2018 by

We tend to forget that we are not machines and food is not just fuel to burn. The way we interact with our environment is quite complex and one of the most basic ways is through what we eat. If you consider the entirety of human existence, it has been only recently that we have had the ability to store and transport food to where it is needed. Before, we where dependent on the seasons and cycles of nature, and our bodies would adapt to those changes (like the bear whose diet changes and when high carbohydrate berries are available in the late summer and fall to allow him to accumulate fat for use during the winter).
