  • Top 10 Myths About the Keto Diet That You Need to Stop Believing

    Top 10 Myths About the Keto Diet That You Need to Stop Believing




    There are a lot of rumors and speculation surrounding the keto diet. Let's make it clear and consider the 10 main ones. We will now go through these points briefly.

    MYTH: the brain needs glucose to function properly and the keto diet doesn't give it everything it needs.

    FACT: the brain needs 1- 1.7 oz (30-50 g) of glucose per day, which can be obtained by the body from protein through gluconeogenesis, and it does not need to consume

  • Sauna as a Detox Practice: Fact or Fiction?

    Sauna as a Detox Practice: Fact or Fiction?





    Can toxins come out with sweat through the skin when we steam in the sauna? Let's study the opinion of the scientific community.

    The skin is quite a detoxifying organ. When the liver, kidneys, or intestines can not cope with the excretion of decay products and toxic substances, the skin takes a hit and then we see rashes on it or feel increased sweating (remember how they tell us to drink hot and wrap ourselves in a blanket during a cold?).

  • The Ketogenic Diet - Why I Decided to Follow It All My Life

    The Ketogenic Diet - Why I Decided to Follow It All My Life





    What associations do you have with the word "diet"?


    I have these:
    • a diet is something short-term
    • a diet is a strict restriction of my menu
    • a diet is a test of willpower
    • a diet is a stress and physical discomfort
    • a diet ends in failure, a rollback to previous levels, and often with weight gain, guilt, and frustration

    And behind all these points are not very pleasant emotions, do you agree?


    Well, the ketogenic

  • Research: Ketones Help With Heart Failure

    Research: Ketones Help With Heart Failure




    Ketones are already known to be good for the brain. For example, they help people with Alzheimer's disease.

    Ketones for heart failure

    A study of patients with chronic heart failure was published in the journal Circulation of the American Heart Association (AAC).

  • A Brain-healthy Diet: What Helped Humans Evolve From Primates?

    A Brain-healthy Diet: What Helped Humans Evolve From Primates?






    The diet of a prehistoric man, a hunter and gatherer, had much more protein and much fewer carbohydrates than the diet of an ordinary modern man. Yes, our forefathers did not grow grain, did not make flour and did not cook cereals. And, of course, they didn't have any fat-free products.

    I wonder what served as a source of protein for an ancient man. Among other things, they ate insects, which many peoples feed on to this day, and slugs.

    In the early stages of the keto diet, you need to consume enough fiber. If you eat enough greens with each meal, then you should not consume additional fiber. In other cases, I recommend eating a spoonful

  • Vitamins and Minerals: Functions, What They Are Useful for, Best Sources

    Vitamins and Minerals: Functions, What They Are Useful for, Best Sources






    Most of us eat poorly (do not even doubt it), not receiving important nutrients that are vital for the normal functioning of the body.

    The Illusion of Satiety: a List of Foods That Make You Want to Eat Even More





    Some dishes can affect the body so that we almost immediately regain our appetite. After breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you think that you are full, but after a while, you want to eat again. The reasons for the saturation illusion are very simple.


    Some products increase the production of gastric juice, as well as increase glucose levels. These factors strongly affect the functioning of the stomach, which signals the desire to repeat a meal after a short

    3 Reasons to Drink Bulletproof Coffee. And a Big Reason Not to Drink

    Its recipe is simple: coffee, MCT oil, and butter whipped in a blender.

    It is very popular among us, fans of the keto diet. Let's find out what makes it so good.

    by Deborah Carbine





    For nearly a hundred years, scientists have been researching a method to slow down aging by reducing dietary calorie intake.

    Experiments on a variety of organisms, from yeast to rhesus monkeys, have shown that life expectancy can be increased if energy consumption is reduced by 10–30%.

    The mechanisms of this phenomenon are still under discussion, but it seems that it is based on a shift in metabolic processes from carbohydrate metabolism

  • For the First Time, the WHO Recommended Physical Activity for Those Who Sit a Lot
    by Deborah Carbine




    A sedentary lifestyle, compounded by the pandemic's quarantine, increases the likelihood of premature death. However, this harm to health can be compensated for by increased physical activity, experts from the World Health Organization write.

    The advice to lead a more active lifestyle and spend more time on exercise to maintain health is hardly a medical breakthrough, but this is the first time such advice is being made at the level of the World Health Organization.

    Emanuel Revici, MD, was born in 1898 and died in 1998 at the age of 101


    Since then, as doctors learned to separate the symptoms of cancer from the manifestations of other diseases, it is perceived as perhaps the most formidable disease for people.

    Although medicine is constantly evolving, and oncology also has its own achievements, the methods of chemotherapy and radiation therapy used in medical institutions do not help everyone.

  • Vitamins for Maintaining Muscle Mass and Muscle Function in the Elderly
    by Antony Convey






    Muscle mass begins to decline after age 30 at a rate of 3% per decade. It seems to be a trifle and at this age is completely invisible. After 50, muscle loss is about 1% of skeletal muscle mass each year and upon reaching the age of 60, this process accelerates significantly.

    Even more annoying, there is less muscle and more fatty tissue. Between the ages of 30 and 60, the average person annually loses 0.5 lbs (0.23 kg) of muscle and instead
