PUFA dangers part 5: Androgens, estrogen, prolactin & cortisol

PUFAs, when incorporated into cell membranes, cause the cells to become more fluid, are chaotropic, disorderly and reduce their function (1). Steroids are made in the mitochondria and require lots of ATP (energy molecule of the cells) to synthesize steroid optimally. Low ATP = low steroidogenesis. Steroidogenesis requires cholesterol, vitamin A, thyroid hormones, NAD+, magnesium […]

PUFA dangers Part 4: Influence on Cellular & Thyroid Function and Diabetes

Polyunsaturated fat (PUFAs), when incorporated into cell membranes, make cells more fluid, which makes them chaotropic, disorderly and reduces their function (1). The increase in fluidity will allow more water, sodium, chloride, and calcium into the cell (edema), and lower intracellular potassium and magnesium which will also destabilize the cell, and reduce cellular function (2). Metabolic […]

PUFA Dangers Part 3: The brain

Medical institutions, as well as common research, will teach you that PUFAs are highly essential for brain function, mainly because they are found in such high concentrations within the brain. To assume that PUFAs are essential because they are found in such high concentrations in the brain, is like assuming that because tics are so […]

PUFA dangers Part 2: Lipid peroxidation and prostaglandins

So now lets get to the part about why PUFAs are so bad. PUFA dangers The predominant omega 6 fatty acid is arachidonic acid (AA), which can be reduced (i) via enzymatic peroxidation to prostaglandins, leukotrienes, thromboxanes, and other cyclooxygenase, lipoxygenase or cytochrome P-450 derived products or (ii) via nonenzymatic peroxidation to MDA, 4-HNE, isoprostanes, and other lipid […]

PUFA Dangers Part 1: storage, mobilization and oxidation

Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are fatty acids which have more than 1 double bond in their structure, whereas saturated fats have no double bonds (only single bonds). The more double bonds a fatty acid has, the more fluid it is, and the longer the saturated fatty acid chain is, the more solid it is. For […]

Coffee, the manliest drink

Coffee is made from roasted coffee beans and can be enjoyed in many different ways, such as with cream or milk, sugar or sweetener, or just plain black. Coffee plants are cultivated in over 70 different countries worldwide. Green (unroasted) coffee beans are one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world. The earliest credible evidence […]

Magnesium – a top dog mineral

Magnesium is a macromineral, which we require quite a large amount of daily. Everyone seems to know the importance of this mineral, yet so many people are deficient. Mg is involved in numerous processes in the body, which includes: heart rhythmvascular tonenerve functionmuscle contraction and relaxationbone formationenergy metabolism – adenosine triphosphate (ATP) productionDNA and RNA […]

Chicory root

If you’re looking for a coffee substitute with lots of benefits and no negative effects, then you’re reading the right post. I myself use to drink lots of coffee and don’t get me wrong, ground coffee is healthy, but if you’re looking for something different, this might be it. Chicory root coffee is a natural […]

27 ways to increase free testosterone & lower SHBG

You want as much free testosterone as you can get so there can be optimal interaction with androgen receptors for optimal anabolic activity. So after testosterone leaves the testes and enters the bloodstream (that’s total testosterone), about 44–65% of the circulating plasma T is bound strongly to sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and 33–54% binds […]

Carbs – what is best for healthy living and optimal testosterone

Carbohydrates are one of the macro-nutrients which are very beneficial for overall health & testosterone. However when we say “carbs”, it’s from a natural complex source, such as fruit, vegetables, organic raw dairy and raw honey.   The good thing about natural high complex carbohydrates is that it contains minerals and vitamins that your body […]
