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 […]

Omega 6 busts your electron transport chain

The mitochondria, also called the “powerhouse” of the cells, is where ATP is made. Cells use fats, carbohydrates and sometimes a little protein to create energy. These macronutrients are broken down in the cell to provide electrons for the electron transport chain, creating a mitochondrial membrane potential (Δψm). Complex I, III, & IV, powered by […]

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 […]

Manganese – lowers ammonia, is pro-collagen, pro-steroidogenesis and boosts immunity

Manganese (Mn), named after the Greek word for “magic,” is one of 14 essential elements. Mn is found in all tissues in the body where it is required for normal amino acid, lipid, protein, carbohydrate metabolism and ATP generation. Mn also participates in blood clotting (assisting in keeping the blood the right viscosity), sugar homeostasis (stable […]
