Can Brain Games Improve Your Cognition?

By Julia Reedy & Catherine Roy Nov 08, 2017

There’s no doubt that we’re living through a technological revolution. And with the internet always at our fingertips, it seems like sheer brainpower is becoming obsolete. But whether we like it or not, our mental capacity follows the law of ‘use it or lose it;’ if we lean too heavily on technology as an external hard drive, we become more vulnerable to age-related cognitive decline.

The good news? It’s never too early to start protecting your brain! And now, there's no need to wonder any longer if those Sunday Paper brain games like Sudoku are imparting real cognitive benefits. Or better yet, if literal “brain food” actually exists. We’ve done all of the research. So without further ado, here’s some truly brain-boosting information you should know.

How We Define Your Optimized Zones of Health and Performance

By Julia Reedy Oct 17, 2017

At InsideTracker, our work revolves around the concept that no two people are the same. Accordingly, neither is their health. And yet until now, we've all been treated with the same remedies, taught the same health-boosting tips, and followed nearly identical dietary patterns. But do such practices get us closer to or farther away from optimal health as individuals? We think the latter. So we've gone rogue; we track biomarkers, use them as a signpost for where our health is going, and change course – even if it's the path less traveled.

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.

Fuel Your Performance With Food

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.
