The Folic Acid Confusion
The difference between Folic Acid and Folate. There are cases when taking a synthetic supplement can yield more benefit than a natural one. For example, Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a synthesised version of L-Carnitine, which is a derivative of the amino acids lysine and methionine. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is more bioavailable than L-Carnitine because it easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and delivers L-Carnitine across cell membranes (which it would not be able to cross on its own).
Sugar and Cancer
The role of sugar in the formation, growth and metastasis of cancer cells is a topic that has often divided the scientific community. While some Cancer Society’s explicitly state that eating sugar does not make cancer cells grow faster, other trustworthy sources disagree and claim just the opposite. A recent research published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation now provides experimental evidence that suggest the anti-sugar camp was right all along. The Warburg effect Th
