Researchers at the Harvard Medical School have discovered a new hormone they have named irisin, after the Greek goddess Iris. It appears to work magic, changing white adipose tissue cells into cells that resemble brown adipose tissue. It does not require a fancy drug to activate, it requires exercise. Mildly elevated levels of irisin result in significantly enhanced metabolic rate.Read More...

The historical use of pine nuts and pine nut oil is extensive. For example, there was often a shortage of food during harsh Siberian winters.

Fisetin, a unique polyphenol flavonoid found in strawberries and other fruits and vegetables, is adding to its science showing that it can help regulate blood sugar. Previously I reported that fisetin can reduce the caramelizing effect of sugar on body structures known as advanced glycation end products – a major issue for type 2 diabetics and general aging for everyone. A new study shows that fisetin can restore the metabolism of carbohydrates by correcting key metabolic enzymes that are malfunctioning. This finding could help offer a path to solution for many people who struggle to incorporate carbohydrates in their diet without gaining weight.Read More...
As children gain weight they stress insulin function in their bodies which leads to further complications and tends to lock in weight gain as well as a path towards increased disease risk at an early age. A new study in children ages 9-12 has shown that 400 mcg of chromium per day over a 6 week intervention was able to improve insulin function and lower their percentage of body fat – helping to move them in the right metabolic directionRead More...
