When we talk of supplementation, most people simply think of vitamins and minerals. Both are actually in fact micronutrients as they are required in small amounts. Macronutrients are the things that our cells are actually made of, as we need these in much larger amounts. Some of these would be Proteins, Fats and Carbohydrates.

If you look at current Alzheimer’s studies today, they are mostly epidemiological or population based studies. These are notoriously inaccurate but relatively easy and cheap to do.

It’s interesting that when we talk health, we often forget to talk about the most important organ in our body, the brain.

Posted on 8/4/2016 by in Rancidity

A recent article grabbed my attention and highlights some issues that I have long argued is a problem with Omega fish and krill oil. (To read article, please see below) If you read the article, it is stunning. A new study by researchers at the Liggins Institute at the University of Auckland in New Zealand found that nearly 30 percent of newborn pups born to pregnant rats fed highly oxidized (rancid) fish oil died within two days after birth. Mothers given rancid fish oil also had a higher incidence of insulin resistance at weaning compared with those given unoxidized supplements or water. Even the authors where surprised. "Once we discovered so many supplements were oxidized, we decided to focus on the health effects of oxidized fish oil during and after pregnancy," research fellow Dr. Ben Albert, from the Liggins Institute at the University of Auckland said in the release. "We were surprised by the death rate," said study lead Professor Wayne Cutfield, also from the Liggins Institute. "We'd expected some negative health effects on the rat offspring, but we didn't expect them to die."

It is a hormone. It has the same chemical structure as other hormones in the body such as Testosterone and Estrogen. There are Vitamin D receptors on every cell of your body. It is made from the skin and eyes exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Lack of Vitamin D has been associated with Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Cardiovascular Disease and pretty much every type of cancer. In spite of this overwhelming evidence, we still have these very dangerous recommendations from dermatologists and the US government to avoid the sun at all costs. By doing this we are ensuring an ongoing explosion of chronic illness.
