A New Study Finds That Flavonoids and Heart Health May Be Related via the Microbiome

Flavonoid-rich foods like berries, apples, pears, and wine appear to have a positive effect on blood pressure levels. This association is also partially explained by characteristics of the gut microbiome, according to a recent study published in Hypertension. [1] Past studies have provided strong evidence that the composition of the gut microbiome can partly explain the association between dietary flavonoids and cardiovascular health, but the present study is the first to provide data ...

How to Prioritize Performance and Longevity in Endurance Sports

Runners and endurance athletes often talk about their personal records (PRs), upcoming races, or the latest fitness tech or gadgets. But there’s always a looming question: How long can I keep going?

Autophagy: What You Should Know Before Starting Your Fast

Our cells go through a normal, physiological mechanism in which they quite literally feed on themselves—a process known as autophagy (pronounced aa-TAA-fuh-jee). The word autophagy stems from the Greek prefixes auto- (self) and -phagy (feed on). This form of cellular housekeeping allows our body to remove damaged parts of cells while recycling others. Inducing autophagy, especially through extended fasts, has become a popular habit among the longevity and biohacking crowds as a way to improve ...

The Gut-Brain Axis: How Gut Health Influences Dementia Risk

Though genetics certainly play a role, recent research shows that modifiable lifestyle factors like diet and exercise can actually influence someone's risk of developing age-related cognitive diseases like Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and other forms of dementia. In recent years, investigators have explored the role of the gut microbiome in the connection between lifestyle and disease risk. Emerging evidence shows that dementia patients have significantly higher pro-inflammatory ...
