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).
I'm putting together a list of supplements I take. Below is the list so far. Vitamin D Vitamin D acts on over 1,000 different genes and serves as a substrate for sex hormones like testosterone, human growth hormone, and estrogen. It moderates immune function and inflammation. It assists in calcium metabolism and bone formation. It’s no coincidence this is one of the few vitamins humans can make on their own, with a little bit of sunshine. Without it – we’d be dead. It’s true

How much alcohol is the safe amount to drink?
A comprehensive worldwide study of alcohol use and its impact on health concludes that the safest level of consumption is zero. A new study finds that drinking no alcohol at all is best for health. The Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 has calculated levels of alcohol use and its effects on health during 1990–2016 in 195 countries. The research, which now features in the journal The Lancet, notes that in 2016, alcohol use was responsible for almost 3 million deaths globally
Multiple Sclerosis and Exercise
In the past, multiple sclerosis patients were advised not to exercise for fear of exacerbating the illness. However, it is now known that physical training can relieve many of the symptoms, including the excessive fatigue and mobility impairments that are often seen. New research now shows that resistance training may protect the nervous system and thus slow the progression of the disease. This is the main finding of a study conducted by a research partnership between Aarhus
