Omega-3 fatty acids are gaining wide spread attention for there numerous health benefits, including uses in cancer, cardiovascular diease, anti-inflammatory activity, ADHD, ASD, cognitive aging, and many others. There are three types of omega-3 fatty acids involved in human physiology: a-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). 

ALA, EPA, and DHA are essential for normal metabolism in mammals. Humans cannot synthesize these molecules on there own, however we can convert the shorter ALA into EPA and DHA, but we lose this ability with aging. Thus you must obtain them from your diet.  Read more... about Omega-3 Fatty Acids Promote Healthy Blood Vessels

Youth and Longevity

Aging can be a scary thing. Today, we have access to supplements, hormone replacment and many other new medical phenomena that can aid in the aging process, making it a beautiful part of life. 

 I had the pleasure of attending a couple functional medicine seminars this last year. One of the amazing things I learned about was the aging body and the decline of our natural hormones. Hormone production via the ovaries begins to diminish in women, leading to a vast array of issues from memory loss to increasing cholesterol levels, even weight gain. For men, the testes also begin to release less and less testosterone during the aging process leading to the obvious decreased muscle mass, but also, the not so obvious mood swings, anger fits, and erectile dysfunction.  Read more... about Youth and Longevity

There is so much confusion out there when it comes to what to eat. Should you do low fat, high fat, low carbs, no carbs? The truth is, nutrition is not a one size fits all science, what is good for you, may not be optimal for someone else. What we do know is healthy circulation is key to good health.   Read more... about Nitrous Oxide
