Podcast #4: What circadian rhythms do

  What are circadian rhythms? Biological functions that vary over a 24 hour period Sleep, activity, digestion, immunity, & motivation WRT to digestion, enzyme synthesis/secretion, gastric acidity, intestinal permeability, and motility are all circadian At the cellular level, circadian rhythms help separate use from repair Circadian rhythms help you solve the puzzle that is the … Continue reading Podcast #4: What circadian rhythms do

Using circadian rhythms to minimize sleep disruption from alcohol

Sleep is one of the most important physiological events that we experience every day.  In fact if you're doing it right, sleep will occupy 1/3 of your time on the planet from birth to death.  Both our mind and body go through various levels of repair while we're asleep, so getting adequate sleep is crucial … Continue reading Using circadian rhythms to minimize sleep disruption from alcohol

Amazing mitochondria: More than just cellular powerhouses

Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of our cells due to their high energy generating capacity in the form of adenine triphosphate(ATP).  In fact, 90% of the ATP generated in our body is made in the mitochondria via the Krebs cycle and electron transport chain. Cell types vary in their number of mitochondria, typically based … Continue reading Amazing mitochondria: More than just cellular powerhouses

Fasting, longevity, and telomeres: The regenerating effects of prolonged fasting

Some of you may recall the recent blog I did going over my aging biomarkers.  If you didn't read it, you can catch it right here.  Towards the end of the blog, I discussed that one of the reasons my telomere test showed much better results than my DNA methylation test is that I fasted … Continue reading Fasting, longevity, and telomeres: The regenerating effects of prolonged fasting
