How I Reclaimed 20 Years & Lost 9 Pounds with InsideTracker

By Erin Sharoni Jul 07, 2015

Yes, that title is accurate. 

No, it’s not part of a cheap marketing gimmick or get-young-and-skinny scheme. I won’t be asking you to fork over cash for a bottle of dubious pills or useless bags of tea.

But it did make you stop and look, right? 

Whether we want to admit it or not, most of us care very much about the process of aging. Particularly, about how our bodies look and feel. There’s nothing wrong with caring about appearance if it means that looking healthy on the outside is reflective of actually being healthy on the inside. It doesn’t take a PhD to understand that the science unequivocally points to improved overall health (1) when the body is leaner than when it is overweight -- from your biomarkers right on down to that glowing skin.

Your Guide to a Healthy Liver: What To Expect From Your Blood Test

By Kalyn Weber Apr 09, 2014

 

Your liver is a pretty incredible organ. In fact, you can’t live without it. One of the most important things your liver does is filter harmful toxins, like alcohol and drugs, from your blood. Your liver also produces bile (a substance needed to break down fats), stores vitamins, minerals and sugars, breaks down old blood cells, and performs a number of other tasks needed for life. That’s pretty impressive! In fact the liver is so important that our body keeps it protected, tucked away on the ride side of our abdomen behind our ribs.

Make food your drug of choice

By Gil Blander, PhD Aug 20, 2013

 

From the recent events of the Biogenesis case to this summer’s IAAF World Championship in Athletics where nearly a dozen athletes were missing due to doping violations, it’s clear the drug problem in sports is still far from being fixed.  Sunday’s night game against the Yankees here in Boston featured another symbol of the problem, when countless Red Sox fans booed Alex Rodriguez’s home run off of Ryan Dempster.

Food for thought: it’s so easy (and healthy) eating green!

By Perrin Braun Jun 08, 2013

 

Are you getting your greens? The USDA recommends that adults should eat 1 ½ - 2 cups of dark green vegetables each week, but according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly three-quarters of Americans miss the target for vegetables. This is a major problem because these green, leafy veggies provide a bonanza of phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals that help provide the nutrients that you need to stay healthy and perform at your peak. An InsideTracker blood analysis can tell you if you’re missing any key nutrients from dark, leafy vegetables, but it’s up to you to eat them!

Evidence-based Training: Optimizing Your Performance with Heart Rate Variability Data

By ithlete Nov 07, 2012

 

What is Heart Rate Variability? 

Contrary to popular belief, the heart does not beat with metronome regularity. The heart, in fact, speeds up when you inhale, and slows down when you exhale. The difference is known as heart-rate variability (HRV) and is a great indication of your overall health, stress levels and readiness to train.
